Louis Meyer, 1936

This is David Story's rendering of 1936 Indianapolis 500 winner Louis MeyerMeyer became the first three-time champion of the legendary contest, with other victories in 1933 and 1928. As an aside, he is known as the first driver to drink milk in victory lane in 1936. In Meyer's case, his swig was not part of an American Dairy Association promotion, but instead a matter of personal preference. Also, it was buttermilk.
