IMS acquires Vel’s Parnelli collection for Museum: The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Foundation has acquired numerous assets from the Vel’s Parnelli Jones Racing Collection, including a number of famous racing cars, for permanent display by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum.

Parnelli Jones is synonymous with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He won the 1963 Indianapolis 500 and in 1970 and 1971 was the winning co-entrant, along with his longtime friend and business partner, Vel Miletich. Jones also was the first to officially lap the fabled IMS oval faster than 150 mph, in 1962.

Throughout much of the first half of the 1970s, the so-called “Super Team” of Mario Andretti, Al Unser and Joe Leonard ruled supreme in both the Indianapolis 500 and the United States Auto Club (USAC)-sanctioned National Championship series, with Unser and Andretti also being virtually unbeatable during that period in the USAC National Dirt Car series.

Among the famous Indianapolis 500 and other cars recently acquired from the Collection and on display at the Museum are Jim Clark’s 1964 Lotus/Ford, the 1968 Lotus “wedge” turbine-powered car, the “Johnny Lightning” P.J. Colt/Ford in which Al Unser won the 1970 and 1971 Indianapolis 500, the 1972 Parnelli/Offy, the 1974-75 Parnelli-Ford DFV driven by Andretti in Formula One and more.

Jones will sign autographs and meet fans from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on American Family Insurance 500 Festival Community Day Wednesday, May 23 in the Vel’s Parnelli Jones Racing Collection room at the IMS Hall of Fame Museum. Besides admission to the track for Community Day, separate admission to the Museum is required for the autograph session.
