In 1987, the Speedway grounds were honored with the designation of National Historic Landmark. The Museum’s collection encompasses race cars from many series: IndyCar, NASCAR, Formula One, Sprint, Midget, motorcycle races, and drag racing. It also includes a variety of passenger automobiles, many of which were manufactured in Indiana by companies that once had ties to racing such as Duesenberg, Marmon, and Stutz marques, as well as Ferrari, Mercedes, and a variety of other European passenger car makers. Upon arrival to the Speedway, attendees will be greeted by noted Speedway Historian, Donald Davidson to provide a brief overview of the historic property.
