Daytona Beach, FL — The Motorsports Hall of Fame of America’s signature “Sweep of Speed” was recently refreshed with two new vehicles — captured in a 90-second time lapse video — and is ready to wow visitors and Daytona International Speedway tour guests, starting with this week’s Rolex 24 at Daytona.
The 1979 Can-Am champion Lola T333CS of 2020 MSHFA inductee Jacky Ickx, and the Scott Dixon-driven 2008 Indy 500-winning Dallara-Honda IR-05, on loan from 2016 inductee Chip Ganassi and Chip Ganassi Racing, are the two new cars.
It’s the first major refresh of the Sweep of Speed since 2016 — the year the MSHFA museum opened in the speedway’s ticket & tours building following its move from Michigan.
The brawny 1970 Lola T165 Can-Am car of 2000 MSHFA inductee Peter Gregg, and an exquisite replica of the Rodger Ward (MSHFA Class of 1995) 1959 Indianapolis 500 winning roadster that also honors 1996 inductee and chassis-builder A.J. Watson, were previously part of the display.
The Sweep of Speed features a 31-degree slice of Daytona International Speedway’s famous high-banked turns. A pack of historic vehicles across motorsports disciplines are mounted on the banking, with others suspended from the roof behind them.
