We’re chronicling 100 days of Indy 500 history on #SpeedRead leading up to the historic 100th Running. With 21 days to go, we’re digging deep into the IMS photo vault.

Last week, we took a dive into the IMS photo vault for classic A.J. Foyt photos from the 1950s and 1960s, finding no shortage of tremendous photos of arguably the greatest Indy 500 legend of them all.
The majority of Foyt’s record 35 consecutive “500” starts came from 1970-92, so that demanded a run back into the vault for more. We’ve emphasized shots with fellow drivers and some that perhaps even the biggest Foyt fans perhaps haven’t seen before.
