CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum preserves the history of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Indianapolis 500. Since 1956, the museum’s collection has grown from a modest display of 12 cars to become one of the world’s premier collections of racing automobiles and artifacts—with more than 55,000 artifacts and over 300 vehicles. As they look to the future, the museum is currently closed for a complete renovation of its facilities. This has allowed the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum and Savoy to collaborate on a two-part exhibition. Part One features a selection of special cars that are unique enough to have found their way into the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum’s collection.

RADwood is an event movement in the automotive hobby world devoted to celebrating the 80s and 90s automotive lifestyle, The name RADwood, was coined by co-founder and COO Warren Madsen, and it is a take-off on The Goodwood Revival. The Goodwood Revival is the only historic motor race meeting to be staged entirely in a period theme located in England. It is an immersive celebration of iconic cars and fashion. The term “radical” was adopted by users in the 70s, which meant “at the limits of control”. During the 80s the term was shortened to “rad” and was used for “cool” or “awesome”. This exhibition showcases vehicles from the Savoy Collection that were built in the 80s and 90s.

Movie Cars, which opened on April 2, 2004, is an exhibit showcasing vehicles from box office hits like “Rain Man” and “War of the Roses.” While movies tend to feature an animal, creature, or human as the star, cinema is full of iconic cars that have somehow managed to steal the spotlight away from the main characters, whether it’s because they are integral to the story, featured in the best scenes, or because they’re an important part of a character’s lore. This exhibition showcases the actual cars from the movies with most being the “hero” car. The “hero” car is the main car driven by the principal actor. Automobiles included in this exhibit include:
