2018 Milk Woman Fuels Indy 500 Drivers

May 24, 2018 03:36 PM

This weekend, one Hoosier dairy farmer will stand out in a very special way as the official milk provider for the winner of the Indy 500.

Kim Minich, a LaPorte County, Indiana producer, is the tradition of an Indiana dairy farmer handing a cold glass of milk to the winning driver in victory lane.

It’s a tradition that dates back to 1933 when winner Louis Meyer requested a cold glass of buttermilk to quench his thirst.

AgDay and U.S. Farm Report national reporter Betsy Jibben talks with Minich before the big race. Video courtesy to ESPN, Indy 500 and IMS production.
