Indianapolis, IN – The Indianapolis Motor Speedway continues its “Traditions” sequence with the tales of a number of the biggest moments within the historical past of the Indianapolis 500 — together with the 30-year anniversary of Willy T. Ribbs being the primary African American driver to qualify for the race, the 45-year mark of Janet Guthrie as the primary feminine entrant, and the 25-year anniversary of Arie Luyendyk setting the all-time IMS pace document.

For a take a look at the earliest days of the Speedway — its founders, development, first-generation racing heroes and extra — take a look at Mark Dill’s First Tremendous Speedway e-book and companion web site. The e-book is offered at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goal and Blackwell’s.
