Big Machine and Curb Sponsored Car Wins Indy 500

Scott Borchetta got to have a victory celebration of a different kind along with Mike Curb at the Indy 500 on Sunday (5/29). The record label chiefs/racing buffs sponsored driver Dan Wheldon in the No. 98 William Rast/aigo/Curb/Big Machine/Forsythe Solutions/Dallara/Honda/Firestone car for Bryan Herta Autosport/Curb-Agajanian, which wound up in the winner’s circle after the historic 100th Anniversary Indy 500.

“Growing up a racer, this is the ultimate win, the ultimate race highlight and just one of the best racing experiences of my life,” says Borchetta. “To share it with my family, my label and all the incredible people involved with driver Dan Wheldon as well as Bryan Herta and his race team was a dream come true. One of the best days ever.”

After 200 laps on the 2.5 mile track, 2005 Indy 500 winner Wheldon emerged as the victor. With only 10 laps remaining, Wheldon passed both Bertrand Baguette and Scott Dixon, before overtaking rookie JR Hildebrand who hit the wall in the final turn.

The No. 98 car will be on display until October 23 in the Air Force One Pavilion alongside the No. 98 Centennial NASCAR Sprint Cup car. It was inducted into the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library on May 27 as part of the Ronald Reagan Centennial Celebration honoring the former President’s 100th birthday.
