INDIANAPOLIS — With 107 days until the 107th Indianapolis 500, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has unveiled the 2023 race ticket.
It features 2022 winner Marcus Ericsson pouring milk over his head during the Victory Podium celebration.
Ericcson revealed the ticket on the ice rink during Friday's Indy Fuel game for Indy 500 night. He grew up playing hockey in his home country of Sweden.
Ericcson was joined by IMS photographer Joe Skibinski, who took the photo on the ticket that will soon be sent to race fans around the world.
"It's one of those moments that you have that dream of almost in your head. Watching people over the years getting that milk and seeing it poured over you. For me ... that's one of the strongest memories I have," Ericcson said.
It was the first time both of them saw the ticket.
"You don't know what to expect. You're trying to frame it and you don't really know what to do because everyone has a different reaction when they celebrate," Skibinski said.
The ticket background is black and incorporates historic track blueprints. These design elements are representative of the track surface and a nod to the design of the logo for the 2023 Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.
It is also embossed and features a gold foil outline.
The race will take place on Sunday, May 28.
