One of the items we visited this month of May but didn’t quite get to posting during the month itself was the Team Penske 50th Anniversary Exhibition presented by Pennzoil, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum.
NBCSN compiled a video above, speaking with Roger Penske as he gives a tour of the exhibit. Photos from the museum I took are below.
It’s a cool exhibit and a case of living history, as it showcases a great percentage of cars that have helped contribute to Penske’s success at IMS – even if this year’s Indianapolis 500 didn’t go according to plan. Beyond the cars, there’s also helmets and helmet replicas, firesuits, and mini Borg-Warner Trophies.
Here’s a list of the full range of cars featured in the exhibit, which is open until November 30:
