Indianapolis Motor Speedway MUSEUM RESTORATION INITIATIVES
THE MUSEUM PRESERVES HISTORIC CARS FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS
Race cars are built for speed. But after decades, vintage vehicles require preservation, maintenance, and care to stay race ready. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum is one of the few museums with an active car restoration department, and our team works hard to keep our cars in the best possible working condition. In fact, many of the 200+ vehicles in our collection could run with a minimal amount of preparation.
However, some of our vehicles were intentionally acquired as restoration projects. Over the last 100 years, open-wheel race cars have evolved significantly, and we believe that restoring these vehicles is critical to understanding the innovation behind that evolution.
With your support, the Museum Restoration Team will continue to preserve centuries of racing history for future generations. This restoration work helps us showcase the innovation behind the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and demonstrate the significant impact the motorsports industry has on both our state—and our nation.
