  • Sonny Meyer dead at 89

    Surprised no one posted on this yet. Ace engine man had 5 decades at the Speedway.

    I was surprised he was still around!

      Wasn't Sonny Meyer not the father of our fellow member Camking who hosts the technical forum?

      Whatever, a well loved, well respected hero on the sidelines of the 500 gone.
      RIP Sonny Meyer, enjoy the company up there.

              Was George Bignotti married to Sonny Meyer's sister?

                Yes, at one time. They later divorced.
