Indy 500 1976: Salt Walther
Salt Walther in his bicentennial racing suit.
It reminds me of Evel Knievels jumpsuit.
I have posted about Salt before HERE which has video of his awful car crash.
I mention him HERE too.
Dad took a close up of his hands. He had burned some of his fingers off in that terrible crash at Indy.
I still can't believe how close they let us get to the drivers and cars back then. So cool!
Was everything better in the 70's? Probably not but I know that the 500 and the month of May in Indy were far better in the 70's than it is today.
