Indianapolis Motor Speedway Celebrates 100 Year Anniversary
Are you a race fan looking for a once in a lifetime souvenir? Do you live anywhere near Indianapolis, Indiana? If so, you may want head over to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) Hall of Fame Museum between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. on Friday, March 20. The reason? As the official site of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway puts it: to celebrate "the 100th anniversary of the signing of the company's articles of incorporation by its four founding fathers." In other words, tomorrow is the 100th birthday of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Admission to the museum is free for the event, and for just $5, race fans can pose for a photo with actors outfitted in period clothing to represent the speedway's "Four Founders" -- Carl G. Fisher, James A. Allison, Arthur C. Newby and Frank Wheeler. The photos will be taken "in front of the museum's 1909 Buick Model 16B, which is believed to have carried Louis Chevrolet to victory in a 10-mile dash on the historic first day of auto racing at IMS, Aug. 19, 1909."
