i stumbled across this video of Vince Granatelli, Andy's son, driving around the speedway in 2015 in the very car his father crashed while trying to qualify for the Indy 500 in the late 40's.

Denny the wife and I recently made visit to the AACA Museum in Hershey (Highly Recommend It) and stayed at a Hotel across the parking lot from the museum. At breakfast, I saw two fellows in Lotus Classic shirts and got to talking with them. Turns out one was Bob Dance who was crew chief for Jim Clark, was part of various Lotus efforts at Indy and worked with Vince Jr on the STP formula 1 team. Very, very interesting stories - PM me with your e-mail and I'll get you some additional information.
