A.J.Foyt, Sheraton-Thompson Special, 1967, Indianapolis 500

A.J. Foyt was driving a Ford powered Coyote at the 1967 Indianapolis 500 and, in the latter stages of the race was following leader Parnelli Jones’ STP Turbine until, with just three laps to go, Jones’ transmission bearing broke and A.J. swept into the lead. As he was about to take the chequered flag a multi-car crash blocked his way. Changing down to second gear he managed to make his way through the flaming fuel, dense smoke and flying wheels to record his third Indy 500 victory and was the only car to complete all 200 laps, and at a record speed of 151.207 mph.

With a record breaking 4 Indy 500 victories and 35 consecutive Indy 500 race starts, “Super Tex” has become an all time Indianapolis legend.
