The 500 Festival commissioned this mural from Indianapolis-based artist Carl Leck to commemorate several important race-related anniversaries occurring in 2016:  the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race, the 60th Indianapolis 500 Festival Parade, and the 40th Indianapolis 500 Mini-Marathon.  Leck’s mural depicts the Borg-Warner Trophy, which is presented annually to the 500 winner; the original and current track pagodas; and three race cars, one of which is the inaugural 1911 winner, the Marmon Wasp.  Other images include depictions of the 500 Festival Parade and the Mini-Marathon.
