There also are a variety of feature stories about current IZOD IndyCar Series drivers, including three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves, 2007 winner Dario Franchitti, 2005 winner Dan Wheldon, 2005 Chase Rookie of the Year Danica Patrick, IZOD IndyCar Series standouts Tony Kanaan, Justin Wilson, Sarah Fisher, Townsend Bell and more.

The Centennial Era section includes features on racing events and an aviation meet in 1910 at IMS, a story on 1916 Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Resta, a recap of the classic duel between Jim Rathmann and Rodger Ward in the 1960 Indianapolis 500 and more.

Indianapolis artist Walter Knabe created the cover art for the Official Program, using a screenprint technique he learned during his five years of work at “The Factory” in New York with the legendary Andy Warhol. Knabe is the first Indiana-based artist to be named the Official Artist of the Indianapolis 500.

Knabe’s work has earned universal acclaim and appeal. Warhol and pop artist Keith Haring commissioned Knabe to create artwork for them, and he has designed custom work for Madonna and Michael Jordan, among other clients.

Walter Knabe Studios has been located in Indianapolis for the last 15 years and has become a trusted resource for high-profile collectors and interior designers. For more information on Knabe and his work, visit www.walterknabe.com/.

The 2010 Indianapolis 500 is scheduled for Sunday, May 30.
