    Philippe Gache, 1 career start only at the 500
    "Paff has been closer to the mark than anyone will give him credit for."

    Richard Kimble 11/18/2010

    "Paff is far more right than any of you will EVER give him credit for.

    As non politically correct and un IndyCar friendly as it is, it's the truth. "

          Bill Tempero also had 28 starts in CART & USAC without a Indy 500 start.

              I’ll accept that.

              He’s still featured in one of the funniest home videos from 30-ish years ago available online. Bob Sagat would’ve been proud.

                Danny Drinan does not count since he crashed in practice and did not make the field in '96, his contact fell out in Turn 1. DNQ two other times.

                    If you count entries into races that number balloons to 69. 34 Starts, 27 DNQ's and 8 DNS's

                        Out of memory, I think he did a couple other IRL races. I know he ran at least one for Marty Roth's team.

                        BUT that just reminds me of another driver from that era who does qualify for this list, Phil Giebler.

                        You can also add Larry Foyt, Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Thiago Medeiros to the list

                          I'm just a mouse around the house.

                            Harroun never drove in a national championship race though, so I don't know that this counts. He did drive in several other non-championship events.

                              Take Rindt off the list. He raced twice--67 and 68.

                                The OP is allowing drivers who raced the Indy 500 multiple times but zero other Championship races
