Studebaker At The Brickyard

The Studebaker National Museum is proud to announce Studebaker at the Brickyard, an exhibit focusing on the company’s participation in the Indianapolis 500. The exhibit opens November 16, 2012, and runs through April 28, 2013.

Studebaker at the Brickyard will focus on Studebaker’s factory-backed teams in 1932 and 1933. Three of the original Studebaker team cars will be reunited as part of the exhibit. A special thanks to Mike Cleary (#18 car), August Grassis (#34 car), and Bob Valpey (#37 car) for making this possible!

The exhibit will also feature a look at Studebaker’s Pace Car history, with a special focus on the 1952 race. Studebaker celebrated its Centennial that year and hosted a special weekend of events at The 500, in addition to supplying the Pace Car. Also featured will be Studebaker as a race car sponsor.
