Indy 500 1973: A.J. Foyt

Here is A.J. Foyt in his prime.

From Wikipedia "He is the only driver to win the Indianapolis 500 (which he won four times), the Daytona 500, the 24 Hours of Daytona, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Foyt has numerous career records at the Indianapolis 500: the first of to date three drivers to win a record four times, the most consecutive and career starts (35), most races led (13), most times led during the career (39), and most competitive laps and miles during a career (4,909 laps, 12,272.5 miles)."

So there you go Brett.

I remember Dad saying how A.J looked annoyed that his picture was being taken so he stopped taking them.
No need in tempting the Foyt temper.
