There have been many changes around the world over the past 14 months due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, however, one tradition that will remain the same this year just like it did in August is that the winner of the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on Sunday, May 30 will continue a tradition started by Louis Meyer in 1933 when he asked for a glass of buttermilk in Victory Lane.

It wasn’t until 1956, when then owner of the Speedway, Tony Hulman made the tradition a permanent fixture for the winner of the Greatest Spectacle In Racing.

This year marks 65 years since the tradition began and this year’s veteran milk presenter is Jill Houin will be back this year and is joined by rookie Indy 500 milker Tim Haynes, who is a fourth-generation owner of Superior Dairy in Garrett, Indiana.
