Racing legend. Winner of the Indianapolis 500 in 1928, 1933 and 1936, becoming the first three-time winner of the Classic. A leading contender in nearly each of the 13 500s he competed in, he also finished 2nd in 1929 and 4th in 1937. After surviving a spectacular crash in his last 500 in 1939, he retired. He subsequently collaborated with Dale Drake to develop the Meyer-Drake racing engine that enjoyed tremendous success in racing competition during the 50s and 60s.
