Troy Ruttman, Jr
Birth: Dec. 17, 1950
Death: May 4, 1969

Race car driver. His father, Troy Ruttman Sr., at age 21 was the youngest driver ever to win the Indianapolis 500 in 1952. Troy Jr., though, was killed in a tragic accident at Long Pond, PA during a Super Modified race at the Pocono Speedway. He was only 18 and was participating in his first race. He was driving a converted Indianapolis roadster that his father had driven in the 1962 Indianapolis 500. According to reports, on the 65th lap of a 100 mile race, the throttle of his car stuck and went through a guard rail, a chain link fence and another guardrail, passed underneath the grandstand, and rolled over. Troy suffered a fatal skull fracture.
