1/3rd of the field was Americans—11 out of 33. Two finishing in 3rd and 4th, too. :roll:

Indy has almost always attracted an international field, both cars and drivers. I have very fond memories of when some of the F1 guys used to come over. Clark, Stewart, Hill, Lotus, McLaren, the glory years IMO. Before my time it was Maseratis, Ferraris, Alfa I believe, etc. Little known fact, in the '50s Indy counted towards the F1 title.

But except for a brief time during the rear engine revolution in the mid '60s, the race was generally won by an US driver. That doesn't seem to happen much anymore. All of our hot shoes have went to Nascar.
