The triumph of winning the Indianapolis 500 is limited to a few, with most drivers facing defeat. Fueled by the storied history, competition, and allure, drivers yearn for victory at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Forty-three were mere moments from claiming the checked flag, five of whom are still in pursuit of adding their name and likeness to the Borg-Warner Trophy.
“Second” features six themes, accomplishment, controversy, determination, heartbreak, mechanical, and redemption. The drivers were placed within a theme based on their Indianapolis 500 race attempts, racing careers, or future in racing.
This is the largest number of drivers ever featured in one exhibition at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum. The drivers featured include Tony Bettenhausen, Eddie Sachs, Dan Gurney, Michael Andretti, Scott Goodyear, and the most recent runner-up, Pato O’Ward. These drivers have race wins, championships, and successful careers but remained runner-up at the Indianapolis 500 mile race.
The exhibition includes 19 cars, 13 from outside the Museum’s collection. Numerous artifacts, such as the Astor Cup, Davy Jones’ 24 Hours of Le Mans trophy, Paul Tracy’s 2002 Indy 500 suit, and Tony Bettenhausen’s 1951 helmet, are on display. Additionally, guests can utilize interactive tablets to learn more about each driver through storytelling, images, and video. Guests can learn about their Indianapolis 500 race(s) and their careers outside the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
