Was at Indy in 1973 for 4 days (?) - Rained everyday....  The race was eventually run on Wednesday (which ended up being rain shortened, and also was the year that Swede Savage crashed, and that a crewmen for the STP team lost his life after being struck by an emergency vehicle on pit lane responding to the Swede Savage crash.)  The race had been delayed from earlier in the week after waiting out the rain, only to have the attempted start result in the huge frontstretch crash with Salt Walther, that also resulted in spectators being injured.

As a 12 year old race fan, there was a lot to think about on the 750 mile ride home that year....Frown
