    The infamous Van Scoy Diamond Mines 500, Gold/Silver Crown race at Pocono. And, Foyt's last IndyCar win as a driver.

    Pretty sure that was race was the final straw for USAC to get out of non-Indy 500 sanctioning of Indy Car races.

    I didn't know until a few years ago that AJ won that race in a March. About a month later he qualified his Coyote for the Michigan 500 and crashed and almost ended his career and life.

    I wonder why he didn't race the newly-minted winning March in the Michigan 500.

      AJ says he liked making his own cars. He only gave it up because he couldn't compete against off the shelf cars for the cost of buying the cars.

        Ahh the infamous piece that literally just ripped off the still photos I own and appropriated them for their own purposes. Good times. At least I got a “special thanks”.

          Not to mention the 20 something year old doing narration on an event about which he has no clue.
