In 1939, three-time Indy 500 winner Louis Meyer requested a bottle of cold buttermilk, and since that fated day, Indianapolis 500 drivers quench their thirst with an ice cold bottle of milk from our Indiana dairy farms. For the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500, the beloved tradition continues!
The winning driver will receive a bottle of milk from this year’s milk woman, Indiana dairy farmer, Janet Dague of Kewanna, Indiana.
The chief mechanic and team owner will receive their own commemorative bottles from rookie milk man, Indiana dairy farmer Joe Kelsay of Whiteland, Indiana.
We know it will be a monumental moment in history when this Sunday’s driver crosses the finish line, so without further ado…
Here are this year’s Indy 500 Milk Preferences from the thirty-three Indy Car drivers:
Whole Milk: 17 requests
Two- percent: 13 requests
Fat-free: 3 requests
