Where are the ‘Super Cars’ now?

Posted on: February 1, 2012 | Comments(11) | Indy 500 | By: Dave

They were lined up in the traditional 11 rows of three on South Meridian Street in Indianapolis last weekend for the photo op of the year (an estimated 250,000 people took in the scene), but where are the “Super Cars” now?

The program — a first for the NFL and another sport — marries the iconic Indianapolis 500, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and INDYCAR with Super Bowl XLVI, which will be played at Lucas Oil Stadium on Feb. 5.

Thirty-two cars have been vinyl wrapped by Freelance Graphics in Indianapolis to represent each NFL team (their colors, logo), with the number on the rear wing endplates signifying the year they entered the league. There also are a duplicate set of cars prepared for the AFC and NFC Championship participants and another representing Super Bowl XLVI.

All follow a design scheme that incorporates the laces of a football across the top of the air intake.

Here’s where they’re located through Feb. 5 (CLICK HERE for directions):

• Super Bowl car: Super Bowl Village in downtown Indianapolis

    Thank you, I think the article mistakenly left it off the list when it was originally posted.

    My compliments to IndyCar, seizing the chance to grab some exposure on the Superbowl coattails. This the kind of smart moves you need to make … keep it up!

    I heard that Scott Norwood drove the Buffalo Bills car and it developed understeer and pulled wide to the right.! LOL

    The Houston Texans Indy Car has the biggest “it” factor of all! Not putting down any team, but that Bulls Head just pops out in 3D right at you. Kudos to the entire team of designers for doing these cars. Perfect for our family who loves football AND racing!

    How about T shirts of all these cars? Thousands of Indy fans and thousands of football fans would have loved them. A huge missed opportunity! Marketing has to improve.
