1970s Tom Sneva Promotional Racing Suit
This suit is believed to be a promotional suit made for Tom Sneva by Simpson Racing Products and was worn at the Indianapolis 500 Expo held at the RCA Dome in downtown Indianapolis during the late 1970’s while Sneva was driving for Penske.
In 1977 Sneva, driving for Penske, became the first driver to qualify for the Indianapolis 500 at a speed at over 200 mph or more, he finished the race in second place. Sneva also became the first driver in Team Penske history to win a championship.
In 1978, Sneva didn’t win a race but still won his and Penske’s second the Championship. Sneva again finished second in the Indy 500. He finally became Indy 500 Champion in 1983.
This would be a great suit to add your display or collection.
