26-foot-long peanut on wheels visits IMS Museum

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Don’t be surprised by a truly strange sight in Speedway, a 26-foot-long peanut on wheels. It’s a promotional tour for Planters and it’s at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. outside the museum entrance.

The Planters Nutmobile features rooftop solar panels to help charge the internal batteries, a peanut-shaped dashboard, smart technology with GPS Navigational System, hydraulic television and computerized controls with a sound system, removable sunroof, rear navigational camera, six blue and yellow seats with customized embroidery and a peanut-shaped front grill.

Brand ambassadors are recent college graduates and are stopping at hundreds of places across the country. The goal is to spread smiles and happiness throughout the country during the current pandemic and celebrate Mr. Peanut. Social media pictures are encouraged. Free snacks are also part of the attraction.

The Nutmobile will be featured at the Carmel Farmer’s Market on Saturday, Sept. 19.
