Front Description

This pin was issued for the Indy 200 Race at WDW Speedway held in January 1997. The background is gold and the pin is black white red and gold. There is the side view of an Indy-style race car decorated with red flames. Underneath the car says "Indy 200 Racing" and on the car it says "97". Unike the other pins for this event, if it weren't for the © Disney on the back, you might not realize it is a Disney pin, since it doesn't have WDW on the pin itself. This was sold during the week of the race. The 1997 Indy 200 at Walt Disney World was the third round of the 1996–1997 Indy Racing League. The race was held on January 25, 1997, at the 1.000 mi (1.609 km) Walt Disney World Speedway in Bay Lake, Florida, being the first IRL race of the calendar year 1997. It was the first race with the new chassis from Dallara and G-Force, as well as for the 4000 cc naturally aspirated engines supplied by Oldsmobile and Infiniti, and it marked the first time that a major open-wheel series contested a race with brand-new cars and engines. The race was won by Eddie Cheever after being called off on lap 149 of the scheduled 200 due to heavy rain.
