Indy Cars

In my previous post, I presented photos of some of the vintage cars that are on display at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum. Today, I would like to share some of the more recent cars that are present. As already mentioned in my last post, the Museum has a floor space totaling 37,500 square feet and only exhibits 75 cars at a time. The displayed cars are rotated every so often but there are also other memorabilia in the exhibition which remain visible at all times.

This year's exhibition also includes a presentation called " Mario Andretti ICON". The exhibit is part of a comprehensive 50th anniversary celebration of Andretti’s dramatic victory at the 53rd running of the “500.” Andretti led 116 laps and delivered a popular, long-awaited victory for colorful car owner Andy Granatelli, despite having to race in a backup car and race-long engine overheating issues. Andretti is the only driver in history to have won the Indianapolis 500, Daytona 500 and a Formula 1 World Championship. The Associated Press and RACER Magazine named him “Driver of the Century” in 2000, and he’s the only driver to earn “Driver of the Year” in three decades (1967, 1978, 1984). (source)

The beauty of photography and the best part........you can look at these images several years later and it conjures all the memories and experiences of that particular day/time. Hence why I love taking photographs smile

I love seeing the progression of they styles of the cars. I still say the older cars while maybe not as aerodynamic have a class and style that is missing from todays cars.
