Why is the Indianapolis 500 Winner Drink Milk? | 2009 Indy 500 Results

Hélio Castroneves of Brasil took his third Indy 500 title after winning back-to-back 500s in 2001 and 2002.

This year’s winner is accustomed to the tradition of drinking milk in Victory Lane at Indy. Why milk? Why is it in a bottle?

It all started in 1933. After Louis Meyer won his second Indianapolis 500, he requested a cold bottle of buttermilk to quench his thirst. The Yonkers, NY native had grown up drinking the beverage and favored it throughout his racing days.

Three years later, Meyer won his third title and, again, he requested a cold glass of buttermilk to celebrate. This time, a newspaper photographer snapped a photo of Meyer taking a swig from the bottle while holding up three fingers, one to represent each of his Indy victories. The shot would appear the next day in a number of newspapers.
