Happy Birthday Carl Fisher


Just 136 years ago today Carl Graham Fisher, the leader of the founding team at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway was born in Greensburg, Indiana. The son of an alcoholic father who essentially left his wife to raise their three sons with little means, there was nothing about Carl's upbringing that portended the influential role he would have in shaping America during the first quarter of the 20th century.
