(Dearborn, Mich. – Jan. 24, 2024) — The Borg-Warner Trophy and the No. 2 Shell Powering Progress Dallara/Chevrolet are on display in Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation through Feb. 2, 2024.

The Henry Ford was selected for this year’s presentation of the Borg-Warner Championship Driver’s Trophy to driver Josef Newgarden and the Borg-Warner Championship Team Owner’s Trophy to Roger Penske for winning the 2023 Indianapolis 500 on Tuesday evening, Jan.23. Since 1988, the race winners have received a one-of-a-kind replica of the trophy, known as the “Baby Borg.”

Newgarden won the Indianapolis 500 in 2023 with the No. 2 Shell Powering Progress Dallara/Chevrolet. He is also featured in The Henry Ford’s film, Fueled by Passion, inside the museum’s racing exhibition, Driven to Win.

“The Driven to Win: Racing in America exhibit at The Henry Ford is the perfect venue to accept the Baby Borg trophy to commemorate our victory at the 2023 Indianapolis 500. The history represented in Driven to Win from all walks of motorsports is unmatched,” said Josef Newgarden. “Detroit is such a special place for us as the home of the Penske Corporation and Chevrolet. And what a great opportunity to have the Borg-Warner Trophy and my 2023 Indianapolis 500-winning Chevrolet race car on display at The Henry Ford for about 10 days following the presentation of the Baby Borg trophies on Tuesday evening. I hope all racing fans that are able to visit Driven to Win enjoy the special display featuring our race car and the historic trophy and they get to experience everything that The Henry Ford has to offer.”
