He is also credited for persuading Anton "Tony" Hulman to purchase and revive the Indianapolis Motor Speedway following the Second World War. He was serving as president of the Speedway at the time of his death in a 1954 plane crash.

Pat O'Connor was a one of the premier American racing drivers of the fifties. He won the pole position at Indianapolis in 1957. One of the pre-race favorites in 1958, he lost his life during the multi-car first lap crash that year.

Jim Hemmings was a local race driver whose promising future was tragically interrupted by an accident in 1962.
