A valued stamp was recently unveiled by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on the 28th of December, 2010. The stamp has a momentous and legendary image of the car, which won the first race way back in 1911. The year 2011 would thus be a momentous year for the speed racing lovers as well. As this year would mark the centenarian year since the first race ever took place from all those years ago at the venue. The speedway in the mean while is located in Indiana in United States.

It is the celebrated location of the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race as well as the Brickyard 400.The United States Postal Service’s 2011 Commemorative Stamp Program has in fact listed this stamp honoring the speed track in Indiana. It is among the twenty five subjects that United States Postal Service has chosen to be highlighted. The Marmon "Wasp" vintage race car will thus be visible on the stamps that will come across as pleasant to most. The "Forever stamp," is the same in value as the First Class Mail 1-ounce letter. It will continue to be so and the price change won’t affect the stamp’s value in any which ways.

Amazing deals on pit bikes with PetrolScooter. A wide range of pit bikes available at reasonable prices including KMB 49cc Pit Bike, Stomp Z140 Pit Bike, Stomp 140 KZ-R Pit Bike, etc.

Speedster and champion driver Ray Harroun drove the yellow No. 32 "Wasp in that first and special year back in 1911. Illustrator John Mattos came up with a stylized version of the same. The copy as placed on the stamp reads "Indianapolis 500," below this copy is written in even smaller letters “100 years of racing”. None the less, it is not a first for the champion car to feature on the stamp. It did so previously in the year 1987 as a 17.5-cent stamp in the Transportation series. In the mean while, The 2011 Indianapolis 500 is all set for Sunday, the 29th of May, 2011.
