The attached article you can click thru to below is the compelling story of Hall-of-Fame driver Johnny Aitken, the man who won more races at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway than any other racer.

In addition to being an outstanding driver, Aitken also managed two "500" winning teams in 1913 and 1914. Below are links to research content about Aitken that served as source material for the article you can enjoy when you choose to click on the attachment.
