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.

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.
