Tomorrow afternoon in Indianapolis, Tony Kanaan’s bas-relief image on the Borg-Warner Trophy will be unveiled as a permanent reminder of the Brazilian’s victory in this year’s Indianapolis 500.

For an entry fee of $5, fans are invited to be part of tomorrow’s 2 p.m. ET ceremony at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s Hall of Fame Museum.

Kanaan’s face is the 100th to grace the Borg-Warner, which has been the official prize for winners of the ‘500’ since 1936.

The trophy has the faces of all 97 Indy 500 winners (plus two years in which co-drivers assisted the main driver on their way to victory) and includes a 24-karat gold likeness of late IMS owner Tony Hulman to commemorate his efforts in saving the Speedway following World War II.
