Indianapolis 500 cars at Indianapolis Airport

Car racing fans take note: classic Indianapolis 500 race cars will be on display at the Indianapolis International Airport (IND) through October 2013.

The first two cars on loan from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum are the Sugaripe Prune Eagle/Offy (above) driven to second place by Bill Vukovich Jr. in the 1973 Indianapolis 500 and the backup Norton Spirit Penske/Cosworth (below) driven in practice by three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Bobby Unser before the 1979 Indianapolis 500. Look for Vukovich’s car on Concourse B near the exit to Civic Plaza and for Unser’s car on Concourse A.

Two other historic race cars will replace those cars in April 2013.

Want to see more cars like this? The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum, on the grounds of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, displays at least 75 cars year-round.

The 97th Indianapolis 500 is scheduled for Sunday, May 26, 2013.
