Not sure if I can help you or not. I help with the Festival Cars, last year and this year as well. We get them as soon as they're delivered and gas them up, plate them and move them to IMS. We come back the following week and continue moving them along with the support vehicles and get them ready to be handed off to the 500 Festival Committee members and other dignitaries for the month of May, though they typically get these cars about mid April.

So that said, last year we dealt with roughly 58 cars but this year we had 100 to move around along with support vehicles.
If in fact the car was a Festival Car it was used in and around the track as well as activities associated with the month of May event.
We have a club member who buys #22 Festival Car each year and adds it to his collection. He knows what dignitary may have been in the car for the 500Festival Parade etc...
I do know there is another club associate who keeps track of the cars and he's probably your best answer to your questions you might have. His name is Lee Douthitt and he's a sales associate with Tom Wood AutoGroup.He's also a Pace Car owner and does most of the coordinating of the cars for the month of May. I'd say reach out to him in a PM on Facebook and ask your questions. I'm sure he'll get back to you.
