There’s an IndyCar in my spot

I biked in to work this morning and found a bunch of vintage Indy cars parked in front of the fountain.

I can only assume that this is part of the IZOD IndyCar Series event going on at the IMA today. The event is for an announcement that will include information about the future of racing with the IZOD IndyCar series and what the next IndyCar will look like. As the guests enter the Museum, they’ll take a trip down memory lane, er Brickyard.

Enjoy contemplating the universe!
