T​he 2016 winner of the 100th race.

A​ lot of fantastic race cars. The color is much brighter in person. Photos and TV just do not relay what is there.

T​he Marmon was the 1st winner in 1911. The wing above the driver is a mirror. It is the first recorded use of a rear view mirror on a car. It is a single seat car so there was no ride along mechanic to spot for the driver. Other drivers protested the lack of a spotter, the mirror was the solution.
