Amazing Animation Shows The Evolution Of IndyCars Over 100 Years All In One Morphing GIF
On Sunday, May 27, 2018, the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500 will take place in Speedway, Indiana. More importantly, however, it will see the completion of the eagerly-anticipated, ultra historic “Danica Double.”
Never before has there been more hype over the retirement of a professional race car driver with a combined one win (2008 Indy Japan 300 at Twin Ring Motegi) in 367 career races (252 in NASCAR’s top two levels and 115 in IndyCar) than what we have seen for driver Danica Patrick.
In the first part of the monumentally important “Danica Double,” Patrick started 28th in her number 7 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 at the 2018 Daytona 500. After being involved in a six-car accident, she ended up finishing in 35th place after completing 101 out of 200 laps. Patrick concluded her NASCAR racing career with top ten finishes in 3.6 percent of her 191 races.
For the second half of the “Double,” Danica Patrick will have to be one of the 33 qualifers (out of the 35 current entries) when qualifications are completed on Sunday, May 20th.
All of this really has nothing to do with anything, other than I needed something to talk about before I showed you this dope new graphic created by the guys over at partcatalog.com.
With the first day of practice starting on Tuesday for the 2018 Indy 500, they put together a very cool animation which shows the evolution of IndyCars from 1911 (the first Indy 500) to today with the newest 2018 IndyCar Dallara model.
It’s pretty neat, and more than a little hypnotizing. Check it out…
Oh, and speaking of evolutions, the partcatalog.com guys also made this. It’s Danica from her rookie year to today. (I don’t think she’s aged at all.)
