Do all of the checkered flags around town have you revved up for race day? Can't get enough motor sports history? If you have a mad love for the mechanical masterpieces the make up the "Greatest Spectacle in Racing" and the drivers and builders behind the event, you'll want to make tracks to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum while you're there.
Located at the south end of the infield, the museum houses a sexy selection of race cars and detailed displays about them, from vintage wheels to modern rides. Of course one's available to plop inside for photo ops and fun. And trophies are there aplenty, along with the famous Borg Warner piece that's updated each year with the winning driver's likeness.
