The Talk of Gasoline Alley
Which driver unwittingly let his teammate pass him to win the Indy 500? Donald tells the story
Imagine you and your teammate have the fastest cars in the Indy 500, and you are on cruise control to the checkered flag....only to see your teammate pass you for the win, with you allowing it to happen.
IMS Historian Donald Davidson returns for another week of "The Talk of Gasoline Alley", and tells the story of how team orders to let off the pace caused one driver to accidently wave his teammate on by, and lose the Indianapolis 500 in the process.
