For the car buff

This was a hidden treasure. I did not expect to find the extensive collection here. If you love racing of any sort, it is well worth the time to make the visit.

We went to the free for admission Penske Racing Museum. It was fun to see these superb racing cars. There was nice descriptions of the drivers as well. There was also Indianapolis 500 pace cars to see. On the 2nd floor of the museum there is a cafe (sometimes open). There is also many championship racing awards, a tourist store,... More

Penske has to store his legendary racing machines somewhere. So he showcased a few of them as centerpiece to an autoplex carrying his name. It's free, and worthwhile. Plus, you can check out that new Beemer, Cayenne or Jag you've been seeing in the hood.

It may be a small museum, but wow! What a lot of racing history and memories. Classic racing cars at their best. There were even bricks made into a walkway that were made by the same company that made the original bricks for "The Brickyard". The only downer, was that photos of any of the Marlboro cars were not allowed... More

We found this free exhibit amongst a number of high end car dealerships. Although not huge racing fans we decided to stop in. We were rewarded with a very entertaining set of exhibits of racing cars which even the casual fan will recognize (or at least recognize their drivers). A hard core racing fan will find the museum of even... More

If you are an auto enthusiast, you will appreciate this little museum. Mostly former race cars from Penske's stable. There are other memorabilia as well and a little snack counter where you can get a drink. The complex is made up of about a half dozen dealerships including Ferrari, Porsche, Bentley and more so you can browse around for you... More

I was here for a special event. What a venue that is beyond perfect for a boy. It was for a Bar- Mitzvah and the space for the party upstairs was perfect! To be able to go on the Land Rover excursion around a man-made track to show how this vehicle handles hills, bumps, rocks, etc. was an added bonus.... More

This isn't the largest auto display you'll ever see, but it is one of the "coolest". It is neat to see the early cars that Roger raced before becoming a team owner. Then all the cars his team fielded. Roger is one of those rare people who has raced and also managed race teams. One other I can think of... More
