The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum has a variety of great gift ideas for the passionate race fans and historians in your life.
An IMS Museum Annual Membership provides incredible year-around benefits, such as free museum admission and a 10 percent discount in the IMS Gift Shop.
Members also receive invitations to exclusive, members-only events such as “Fuel Up Fridays,” featuring IndyCar Series drivers and personalities, plus discount admission for the Museum’s “Distinguished Speaker Series,” featuring A-list Indy 500 and IndyCar drivers, team owners and officials, and the new “Shop Tour Series,” which gives fans a behind-the-scenes, guided tour of local IndyCar Series shops.
Other excellent gift ideas that support the IMS Museum’s mission:
Merchandise: Sales of special IMS Museum-branded merchandise, which is available in the IMS Gift Shops located in the IMS Museum building and online, support the Museum and the development of exhibits such as “Hoosier Thunder: Indiana’s Short Track Heritage.” In fact, two Hoosier Thunder-themed t-shirts and a beautiful poster, featuring a map of every known Indiana motorized racing short track, are available this year only.
