My family moved to Indianapolis in 1961 when I was ten years old. I attended my first Indy 500 only a few years later. For more than 50 years I’ve held the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in awe. I’ve been to more than 50 races including Indianapolis 500’s, Brickyard 400’s, Grand Prix, motorcycles, and classic car events. I’ve ridden as my wife drove her 1966 Yenko Corvair around the track. IMS means a lot to me, and the IMS van wrap does too.
I can hear the cars on the track from my backyard. I live less than one mile from the Speedway. What’s all this have to do with vehicle graphics? Nothing, other than when I see the Indianapolis Motor Speedway logo being applied to a vehicle in our shop—it gives me goosebumps.
The graphic design is classic. There’s no need for over the top visual effects, they would distract from the message. It’s elegant in its simplicity, a black van with red and white contrasting accents. The IMS logo is placed prominently for all to see extending from the body to the rear window area. Chevrolet is easy to spot applied across the top of the windshield, and the red band running along the bottom of the vehicle is covered with icons and logos of IMS events held throughout the year. There is no doubt what this vehicle represents and its message.
