The winner and a guest will receive two Race Tickets and two Bronze Badges for the race weekend. They will meet A.J. Foyt and race driver Vitor Meira in the team’s garage at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Saturday, May 23rd.  They will see the No. 14 ABC Supply Dallara/Honda as it is being prepared for the first race of the Speedway’s three-year Centennial Celebration.

Beginning in 2009, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway celebrates its Centennial Era, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the facility in 2009 and the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race in 2011.

After the private Meet and Greet with the Foyt team, the winner and guest will attend the Drivers’ Meeting held at the track on the front straightaway near the famed Yard of Bricks finish line. They will also be able to tour the garage area as teams make their final preparations.

On Sunday, May 24th, the winner and guest will have reserved seats to watch the world’s most famous race.

Bidders can participate by going to www.continental.com and click on the Frequent Flyer tab, then to the Online Auction section. The Indy 500 package is listed in the Sports section. It may also be accessed by clicking on this link:  OnePass Online Auction - INDIANAPOLIS 500® VIP PACKAGE, MAY 23rd - 24th, 2009.
