INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Seeing Tony Stewart behind the wheel of an IndyCar is a Hoosier State racing fan’s dream. Today, that dream came true — in a way.

Stewart tweeted out a picture of himself in AJ Foyt’s 1961 Indy 500-winning car with a caption indicating he’ll be back in the same vehicle come race day.

Stewart’s ride around the track will come pre-race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, driving in the first of four Indy 500-winning AJ Foyt cars.
