Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum and Dallara Factory Tour
15 OVEB members enjoyed a day trip to the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Dallara IndyCar Factory. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum is recognized as one of the most highly visible museums in the world devoted to automobiles and auto racing. Down the street from the Speedway is the Dallara IndyCar Factory where we explored 23,000 square feet of interactive and hands-on exhibits centered around the engineering and technology of the world's fastest sport! After lunch, visited the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to take a 90 minute tour of places normally open only to officials, drivers, and teams during race events. These included the timing-and-scoring suite in the Pagoda, the Media Center, Victory Podium, Gasoline Alley garages and the Verizon hospitality suites. A smaller group of members elected to spend the night and visit the Lilly House mansion and the Indianapolis Museum of Art on the Newfields campus.
