SPEEDWAY, Ind. (WISH) – The Foyt family opened a new wine bar on the main street in Speedway on May 21.

The Foyt Wine Vault is part of an expansion of the A.J. Foyt racing team offices in Texas. The building is 45,000 square feet and will serve as a central location for the team during races in the Midwestern states.

“The Foyt Wine Vault is more than just a tasting room-it’s a slice of racing history. It’s a great place to relax with friends, and a cool venue to host your special events,” said co-owner A.J. Foyt IV. “We serve some of the best wines created in Northern California and a good selection of craft beers for your enjoyment. And oh, by the way, you can get a close-up look at the last Indy car that A.J. drove in the Indy 500 in 1992.”

The wine bar will serve craft beer and feature cheese from the Tulip Tree Creamery, meat from the Smoking Goose and chocolate from The Best Chocolate in Town.
