Art Pollard Day in May
Join World of Speed for an afternoon celebrating the life and legacy of Indy racer Art Pollard. Pollard was known not just for his dedication to racing, but also for his important work for children with special needs. The day kicks off with a special Indy-style welcome complete with music and fanfare at noon, followed by racing activities, crafts, and — of course — ice cream! You can also meet some of Art Pollard's family and learn more about this very special racer.
