The 100th running of the legendary Indianapolis 500-mile race was in 2016. The 100th anniversary was celebrated in 2011 as the first race was run on May 30, 1911. Ray Harroun was declared the winner, driving a Marmon Model 32 Wasp racer across the finish line of what was then 2.5 miles of bricks.

Built by West Coast fabricator Louis 'Curly' Wetteroth around 1934-1935. It was purchased by William Schoof of Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1935 and campaigned nationally thru 1949 as the 'Fox Point garage Special' (where his cars were built) or the 'Schoof Special.' As a race car it was constantly modified and occasionally wrecked, notably at Milwaukee in 1948 and Indianapolis in 1949. It has been restored to the start of the 1949 season configuration and how it ran at the Indianapolis '500' that spring finishing 10th. Duke Dinsmore had qualified it at 119.84 mph at the 1947 Indy 500 event.

The car has a 101-inch wheelbase, Houdaille shocks, and many components from a 1941 Ford. There is a 270 cubic-inch 16 valve twin cam engine that produces approximately 325 horsepower.

The car has a list of 26 different drivers in its 14 year history. The car was restored in 2005.
