The 100th Anniversary running of the Indianapolis 500 was a race for the ages. Team Target dominated the race, but as in qualifying, fuel issues led to their downfall. As the closing laps ran without caution, fuel savings came into play, just as it did the previous year. J.R. Hildebrand played it best, and took the lead with three laps to go as leaders pitted for fuel. It looked like Panther Racing would get their first Indy win after finishing the second the three previous years (the previous two with Dan Wheldon as driver). But on the last turn Hildebrand hit the wall trying to get around a slowing car. He kept his foot on the throttle but Dan Wheldon, driving for Bryan Herta Autosports in what was only their second ever Indycar race, passed Hildebrand a couple hundred yards before the finish line to take the win, while Panther Racing finished second for a record fourth year in a row!

In winning the 100th Anniversary Indy 500, Dan Wheldon broke a record that stood for 99 years, and will never be broken again: The least amount of laps led in victory. Previous record was 2 laps by Joe Dawson in 1912. Wheldon led only a single lap, but it was the one that counts.

We are pleased to announce a first for Indycals decals: Dayglo printing! This set of decals consists of dayglo-orange markings printed on clear vinyl, combined wiht our standard water slide decals for the rest of the markings, which include another first - chrome foil printing! Due to the need to outsource the dayglo printing, this set of decals will only be available in 1/18 and 1/24 scale. Note: Dayglo orange and chrome printing in the above image are simulated.

NOTE: The chrome foil printing is VERY fragile and does not always print correctly. It is normal for there to be some slight spots where the chrome has worn away leaving the black under-surface showing through - this is unavoidable but does not take away from the finished model. In cases where the the finish is unusable, I will supply extra chrome markings for the damaged areas. Also, do NOT clearcoat the chrome printing - if you clearcoat your model, apply the chrome decals last.

 

THESE DECALS ARE TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE
