SPEEDWAY -

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum will next month unveil an exhibit honoring the career of racing legend A.J. Foyt. The exhibit will be celebration of the 40th anniversary of Foyt's fourth Indianapolis 500 win.

The exhibit, A.J. Foyt: A Legendary Exhibition, will feature nearly three dozen cars driven in competition by Foyt, including all four of his Indy 500 winning cars. It will also include cars used during Foyt's career in NASCAR, USAC and road racing, along with rare memorabilia from Foyt's personal collection.

"Everyone knows that the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is my favorite track and that people wouldn't know me if it weren't for the Indy 500, but to have the Museum put on this exhibit there, well I feel truly honored," said Foyt. "Based on the stuff we shipped to Indy, I think the Museum has a lot of personal memorabilia and photos that their visitors will like seeing. I haven't seen some of the cars in many, many years so to be truthful, I'm looking forward to the exhibit too!"

The exhibit opens April 14 and runs through October 31.
