The race track now known as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway was the vision of Carl G. Fisher. In time, what was an overgrown 320 acres on the edge of Indianapolis, became the venue of the Indianapolis 500, known as ‘the Greatest Spectacle in Racing,’ because of Fisher’s vision. He was an entrepreneur, a businessman, and a race car driver, and was the driving force behind the creation of the speedway. He envisioned the need for a proving ground for American auto manufacturers where they could test their products and race against the best competitors from around the world.
Today the Indianapolis 500 has become one of the most-watched racing events in the world. For the racing enthusiast, the month of May is anticipated every year. The ‘First Thirty Years of the Indy 500’ is my effort to share the genealogy and history of this great event.
