Starting at $20,000 is a signed race suit worn by AJ Foyt in the International Race of Champions - an oval race with identical stock cars to test driver ability. Foyt, a champion NASCAR driver, won the IROC in both 1976 and 1977.

Also starring is Jacques Villeneuve's race suit from 1995, in the year he won both the CART Championship and the Indy 500. Originating from the Williams F1 team, it includes his initials written on the label in black felt tip. Bidding starts at $15,000.
