EXPERIENCE THE THRILL OF THE RACE ALL YEAR LONG
WINNING CARS OF THE INDIANAPOLIS 500
See the cars that propelled their drivers to Victory Lane! More than 25 Indy 500-winning cars are on display at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum, spanning more than a century of history at the Indianapolis 500. Highlights from this priceless collection include the 1922 Duesenberg, 1938 Maserati, 1948 Watson, and 1911 Marmon Wasp—the famed six-cylinder that won the first Indianapolis 500.
These one-of-a-kind vehicles are displayed alongside the iconic Borg-Warner Trophy, the annual prize awarded to the Indianapolis 500 victors.* The trophy features the silver-sculpted likeness of each Indy 500 winner, standing more than five feet tall and weighing a total of 110 pounds.
Throughout the Winners Gallery, you’ll also find historic race programs and memorabilia, helmets throughout the years, bricks from the original 1909 racetrack, and pieces from our beautiful silver trophy collection, including the personal collection of Rudolf Caracciola.
*Please note that the cars on display will vary according to exhibition schedules. The Borg-Warner Trophy is currently on display in the Traditions exhibit and may occasionally be unavailable for display while featured at off-site events. Please contact the Museum at 317-492-6784 for more information.
