INDIANAPOLIS – It’s not the Month of May in Indianapolis but this week it’s certainly going to feel like it for 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series Rookie of the Year Alexander Rossi. The Andretti Autosport/Bryan Herta Autosport driver has a big week in the circle city, as by virtue of his big win in this past year’s 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500, he will get to relive it once again on Wednesday and again on Thursday.
On Wednesday, Rossi’s likeness will be revealed on the Borg-Warner Trophy at 5 p.m. ET in the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum. This has become a big event in Indianapolis as it’s the first time everyone will see, including the race winner his image on the historic trophy.
Then, on Thursday, Rossi’s No. 98 Honda will be donated to the IMS Museum in a special presentation as part of the PRI Show in the Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis. The team felt it was best to have this car be placed in the museum as the 100th running was a big piece of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s rich history.
So, Rossi will see his face on the Borg-Warner Trophy on Wednesday and see his race winning car donated to the IMS Museum on Thursday. What a week for the California native.
