Indianapolis Motor Speedway (L-R) 2021 Milk Person Jill Houin, winner Helio Castroneves, 2022 Milk Person Tim Haynes

When a jubilant Helio Castroneves made it to the Indy 500 winner’s circle, a woman wearing cow-print gloves handed him a bottle of milk, which he proceeded to swig and dump over his head. That woman, the official “Milk Person,” is Plymouth, Indiana, dairy farmer Jill Houin. She talks with Steve Alexander about the chaos of the winner’s circle, and about the family dairy farm, Homestead Dairy.
