THE GREATEST SPECTACLE IN RACING

"In Indianapolis racing is religion. The Speedway is our temple. That's the best way I can explain my worship for Indianapolis." —Racing legend Mario Andretti

Officially licensed in cooperation with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, "Indianapolis 500: A Century of Excitement" tells the compelling and entertaining story of the race that has become known as simply "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing." Overflowing with more than 600 photographs hand-picked from the Speedway's mammoth photo archives, and filled with historic, behind-the-scene stories, you'll revel in the history that has shaped this amazing event. Of course, "The 500." means something different for all who experience it. Perhaps David Letterman, the famed TV talk show host, car owner and Indiana native, says it best in the Foreword to the book when he calls the Indianapolis 500, simply, "a friend."
