Shock and Awe: Pagenaud amazed by clay sculpture of face for Borg-Warner Trophy

In his 30th year of creating the face of the Indianapolis 500 winner on the Borg-Warner Trophy, sculptor William Behrends has seen the look of amazement in the eyes of that year’s winner the first time they see themselves in a life-size clay image.
Behrends: “From that point, it is shrunken until the final bas-relief sterling silver image is cast and then mounted onto the permanent Borg-Warner Trophy.”
Behrends: “Pagenaud’s reaction Wednesday was similar to that of other drivers, but never more expressive.”
