Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum Releases “Epic Drama” Book



Indianapolis, Indiana – The first book centered on the Indianapolis 500 champion vehicles in the museum’s collection was released. The collection, which consists of 34 automobiles, is the largest in existence.

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum’s amazing collection of Indianapolis 500-winning cars is included in the book Epic Drama: The Winning Collection, which was shot by acclaimed photographer Bill Pack. You will be lured to the imagery and enthralled by the stories, which are visually gorgeous and include notes and tales about each vehicle and its driver. This collectible is ideal for art or racing enthusiasts.

Many people from all over the world go to Indiana every year to visit the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to see drivers compete and test the limits of both machines and death. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is deeply ingrained in Indiana’s cultural fabric. In Indianapolis, the winning driver is not nearly as important as the winning vehicle. Seeing these vintage race vehicles instantly transports the observer to another era, whether it is through aesthetics, design, or fond memories of one’s youth.

“Our collection is impressive and deserves to be memorialized in a visual publication,” said Joe Hale, President of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum. “There is beauty to the cars themselves, but also the stories behind each winner. The book displays the true essence that is the Epic Drama of the Indianapolis 500.”

A foreword by Roger Penske and an introduction by former IndyCar driver Lyn St. James are included in the book. The book features many photographs of each vehicle, which range in age from the 1911 Marmon Wasp to the 1986 Budweiser March 86C. The photographs were all taken in a temporary studio that was set up inside the Museum.

Along with Bill Pack as the photographer, Dwight Knowlton wrote the book’s content, and Lionel Ferreira designed it.

On December 8 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., the Museum will host a reception for the book. Former drivers Bobby Rahal and Lyn St. James, as well as the photographer Bill Pack, are special guests. The cost of admission to the event is $40 for museum members and $50 for non-members. Purchase tickets at
