SPEEDWAY, Ind. (WTHR) - The race cars may be parked, but workers at the Dallara factory in Speedway are staying busy helping their fellow Hoosiers.

The company that usually builds race cars is now using its equipment to cut masks and gowns for hospital workers. Bryce Moore with Dallara tells 13News the company has been allowed to stay in operation due to its aerospace and defense contracts and is turning out 75-100 masks and gowns each day.

Once cut, the equipment is taken to StitchWorks on the east side of Indianapolis for stitching. The masks and gowns are then delivered to Eskenazi Health.

Dallara is based in Parma, Italy, where the coronavirus has also taken its toll.
