With the Greatest Spectacle in Racing (The Indianapolis 500) just around the corner, fans of all ages can experience Hot Wheels® like never before at the world’s largest children’s museum.

The new Hot Wheels™: Race to Win™ exhibit officially opens May 13, 2017 and will run through July 30th before traveling to another city.

Families are able to bring their competitive spirit as they test the science of gravity and aerodynamics by racing Hot Wheels die-cast cars on iconic orange Hot Wheels track. Within the exhibit Chip Ganassi Racing has loaned a real life IndyCar that has been cut in half so visitors can see the inner workings and how an IndyCar is engineered.
Throughout the exhibit, families will be encouraged to participate in activities that demonstrate how racecar designs, development and cutting edge technology result in the fastest, and safest vehicles in the world!
This year, Hot Wheels™: Race to Win™ also takes a closer look at drag racing, with a special focus on female drivers.
