Team Sycamore dragster to be on display at State Museum

January 15 2008

Indiana State University’s "Team Sycamore Racing" dragster will be on display at the Indiana State Museum in downtown Indianapolis Saturday and Sunday (Jan. 19 - 20) as part of “Gathering before the Green Flag,” the finale of the three-month-long SPEED exhibit, co-sponsored by ISU's motorsports studies program.

Underscoring the importance that motorsports plays in Indiana, the exhibit features a variety of racing machines, championship trophies, driver appearances, and symposiums featuring top race track architect/designer Paxton Waters, racing historian Donald Davidson, professional motorsports photographer Ron McQueeney and Delphi Safety Team Director Dave Brown.

Representatives will also be on hand from racing venues, one of the Midwest's top car clubs, leading motorsport sanctioning bodies such as the Indy Racing League and USAC, and one of the country's top die cast designer/manufacturers. Racing artist Ron Burton will also be on hand putting the finishing touches on one of his newest works.

Team Sycamore Racing is made up of Indiana State University students who are pursuing a multi-disciplinary minor in motorsports management.
