With the addition of his likeness, unveiled yesterday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the 2014 race-winner becomes the 100th driver face depicted on the legendary trophy.
“It’s amazing,” said Hunter-Reay. “I’ll be able to bring my kids and my family back here for as long as I’m alive and show them what was achieved here.”
On the night of Jan. 16, racing legend Parnelli Jones joined a new era of racing history. While attending the Automotive News World Congress Dinner to present Dario Franchitti with his “Baby Borg” replica of the Borg-Warner Trophy that drivers have received since 1988, Jones was honored with his very own “Baby Borg.”
It was a race to remember, with Indianapolis 500 darling Dario Franchitti winning his third Borg-Warner Trophy and embracing both his wife, actress Ashley Judd, and his friend Dan Wheldon’s widow, Susie, with warmth to match the day’s second-hottest temperatures on record, 91 degrees.
