2011 marks the historic 100th Anniversary of the first running of the Indianapolis 500, and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is offering an opportunity for you to participate in the activities surrounding this momentous occasion. To help celebrate the history and tradition of this great event, we will be hosting the 100th Anniversary Pace Car Reunion, a once-in-a-lifetime event to be held inside the hallowed grounds of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on May 21-22, 2011.
We will be accepting only Indianapolis 500 “Official” Pace Car or a Track/Festival Car to participate in our reunion and if you have an automobile that should be considered, we would be honored to have you submit an application to participate. We would also like to encourage you to make plans to attend the Celebration and take part in the festivities on qualification weekend for the Indianapolis 500!
