Fans, Visitors Should See Incredible Foyt Exhibit at IMS Museum by Nov. 12

Time is running out for fans and visitors to view a once-in-a-lifetime exhibit honoring auto racing icon A.J. Foyt at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum.

A.J. Foyt: A Legendary Exhibition, presented by ABC Supply, will conclude its wildly popular run Sunday, Nov. 12 at the Museum. The exhibit, which opened in the spring before the 101st Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil, was created to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Foyt’s record-setting fourth “500” victory in 1977.

A wide variety of displays trace superstar Foyt’s rise from the dirt tracks of Texas to the pinnacle of auto racing history.

Nearly three dozen cars that Foyt drove in competition are on display, including all four of his Indianapolis 500-winning machines, the 1961 Bowes Seal Fast Special, the 1964 and 1967 Sheraton-Thompson Specials and the 1977 Gilmore Coyote.

In addition to several of Foyt’s Indy cars, many incredible machines representing Foyt’s career in NASCAR, USAC and road racing are on display, many for the first time. Visitors also can see rare memorabilia from Foyt’s personal collection.

A.J. Foyt: A Legendary Exhibition is presented by ABC Supply, with additional support from Chevrolet and Al-Fe Heat Treating.

The IMS Museum is located in the infield of the world-famous oval, between Turns 1 and 2. It is open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (ET) daily from March through October and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. daily from November through February, closing only on Thanksgiving Day on Christmas Day. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for youth ages 6-15 and free for children under 6.
