Wilbur Brink
Birth: 1919
Death: May 30, 1931

On lap 162 of the 1931 Indianapolis 500 Mile Race, defending champion Billy Arnold, while leading, broke his rear axle as he negotiated the fourth turn. He lost control and his car tumbled over the wall. In the process it lost a wheel which, after traveling a considerable distance through the air, struck and killed Wilbur, who was sitting in his yard at 2316 Georgetown Road, across from the Speedway.
