A.J. Foyt 1964, Indy 500
May 30th, 1964, A.J. would capture his 2nd Indy 500 victory. He started 5th, dominated the race and led 146 laps. He averaged 147.350 mph smashing the track record by over 4 miles per hour When A.J. crossed the finish line, it would be the last time a front-engined ‘Roadster’ would ever lead a lap at the ‘Brickyard’.
In 1964 A.J. won ten of the thirteen National Championship races, winning every race he finished, and his finest tribute came from Parnelli Jones at the Indy 500 victory dinner when he introduced A.J. as “the greatest racing driver who ever lived”.
