The Spectacle Celebrating the History of the Indianapolis 500 is a mix of historical fact and entertainment for young readers and race fans to learn about The Greatest Spectacle in Racing - the Indianapolis 500. The book features a vast number of drivers, teams and race cars that have made an impact on the rich history of racing at the Brickyard.
Rather than run through a chronological list of each race, The Spectacle Celebrating the History of the Indianapolis 500 breaks the content up into to series of short topical sections such as The Golden Era, The British Invasion and The Four-Timer Club. A dad serves as a narrator as he teaches his kids about the Indy 500, which provides some light-hearted interaction with the kids to compliment the fact-based content. An intro and outro featuring four-time winner A.J. Foyt ties it all together in a unique, identifiable way.
The book illustrations are as authentic as possible, depicting the actual race cars and their period paints schemes, as well as many of the heroes who drove and / or built them. Readers also see the evolution of The Brickyard over time and get a sense of who the machines that race in the Indy 500 have developed over time.
Readers are treated to a mix of car views, including in-car, side, front and backward looking perspectives. All illustrations are hand-drawn and then digitized & colored for placement in the book.
