Vintage Racing - 1950s Indy Cars startup and race. LOUD!!!
Chris Ashworth records a series of 1950s Indy Cars at Michigan
International Speedway. This was a vintage racing event that was associated
with the Concours d'elegance of America, where these cars were on display
after this event.
This event was incredible! I got to wander in the pits and the garage area.
You will hear these cars starting up right from the tailpipes, and you will
see them driving on the track from the pits.

1951 Kurtis-Tufanelli Bardahl Special
Starting the old girl up for a few laps at the Milwaukee Mile, July 10th
2010 during the Millers at Milwaukee vintage Indy car meet. Excuse the
quality- this is from a point and shoot camera!
This car last raced at the Milwaukee Mile in 1951. I think it liked being
back at the oldest race track in the USA.
Cummins - History of Innovation - Indianapolis 500
Our history at the Indy 500 mirrors the drive we've always had as a company
to remain on the cutting edge in everything that we do. In our industry,
we've set the standard for innovation and dependability. Cummins pioneers
realized that without risk there cannot be rewards. Watch how they used
the Indianapolis 500 as the proving grounds for our early products.

1952 Blastolene Indy Car Classic - Symbolic Motors La Jolla
http;//www.lajollablogs.com Check out this amazing 1952 Blastolene Indy
Special car at Symbolic Motors in La Jolla. Everything about this car is
unique, from the chassis to the polished aluminum skin are all hand formed.
This car was designed to emulate the Indy 500 cars racing during the 1950s.
It all looks correct until you get to that gigantic engine that is the
equivalent of 5 - 350 Chevy engines in displacement! Whenever this thing is
started (and there is a procedure to doing this), people come running to
see what it is. 4-wheel hydraulic disc brakes from a diesel truck, Eaton
rear axle, and a solid beam semi front axle. This car has a 160" wheelbase
with an overall length of 21.5 feet. The suspension incorporates Monroe
shocks with airbags for ride adjustment, and the Exhaust exits through Exhaust cutouts on both sides of the body
(directly under the cockpit).
1952 Indy 500 Cummins Diesel
This is a home movie taken by my father, Joe Unger, at the 1952 Indy 500.
It shows the Cummins Kurtis race car on the pole for the start of the race.
This car featured a sideways mounted turbocharged 6 cylinder diesel engine. The
Cummins-Kurtis later retired due to a turbo failure and Troy Ruttman won the race. You
can read about this unique race car here:
The car on fire in the pits is Troy Ruttman. He stayed in the car as his
father put out the fire and he went on to win the race!
1961 Indianapolis 500 8 mm Home Video
Home video footage of the 1961 Indianapolis 500, won by AJ Foyt. The video
was originally shot on 8 mm. Highlights include, pre-race ceremonies, Ray
Harroun driving the Marmon Wasp as celebration of the 50th anniversary of
the first 500, along with the start of the race and the end of the race
celebration lap with AJ Foyt and the pace car. There is no sound
obviously. but this is a rare never before seen video. Enjoy!

Freddie Agabashian's Cummins Diesel Special wasn't the first oil-burner to
compete in the Indy 500, but it was the fastest-and likely most
significant. The company had been there before. In 1931, a Cummins-powered
Duesenberg qualified last, but ran the entire race without a pit-stop,
finishing a lucky 13th. The long, low, heavy Special roadster of 1952 was
purpose-built for diesel power and surprised everyone in motorsport when it
grabbed the pole that year with a record four-lap-qualifying average of
138.010. It was powered by a turbocharged inline-six-cylinder truck diesel that
put out around 400 horses. Things didn't go so well in the race, as the turbocharger inlet was clogged with rubber
and other debris by lap 70, overheating the massive engine. The car
retired, but the point had been made. turbocharging became common at Indy by the late
1960s, and diesel-powered race cars have since won at Sebring and Le Mans.
They owe a lot to the Cummins Diesel Special.
