1941 Indy 500 - in Color!


If you have about a half hour, kick back and watch this film of highlights from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway back in 1941. It is an interesting mix of practice highlights, some footage of the victory dinner - with drivers receiving checks and the Borg-Warner Trophy in the background - and race day coverage. There is footage from the race day morning garage area fire that I have never seen before. Track manager T.E. "Pop" Meyers is alive again and quite active in the pit area.
