1977 Indy 500 Program
Tell any racing snob who sniffs at the Indy 500 that Ed Carpenter averaged 228.762 MPH to win this year’s pole.
In October 2000, Gil de Ferran set the track record for fastest lap during CART qualifying at 241.426 mph (388.537 km/h). Yesterday, EJ Viso hit 229.5 mph.
I can’t stand NASCAR, but Indy Car and F1 hold a special place in my loins.
