Classic Rewind: 1961 Indy 500
|Foyt in 1961 Indy 500|
We've reached the top of the list of all-time race winners in Indy car history, with the great A.J. Foyt at No. 1. We dug far into the archives for this one, uncovering footage from Foyt's first Indianapolis 500 win in 1961.
The story of that month and Foyt's great battle with Eddie Sachs is told through the Champion spark plugs film "Champions at the Wheel." This was the fifth of Foyt's 67 career wins and first on a paved oval. Watch and enjoy.
