Louis Disbrow 1912

Louis Disbrow was a veteran of four Indianapolis 500s with a best finish of eighth in 1913, driving for the Case team. He competed in three other 500s: 1911, 1912 and 1914. Disbrow was born in 1888 in Indianapolis and passed away in Philadelphia in 1939. Perhaps his greatest victory came on November 13, 1909 when he took the 200 mile Atlanta Trophy after leaders George Robertson (Fiat) and Louis Chevrolet (Buick) suffered mechanical trouble. Disbrow piloted a Rainer on that occasion. Disbrow is pictured in his 1912 Case race car.
