RACE: 20th Indianapolis 500

DATE: May 30, 1932

WINNER: Fred Frame, Harry Hartz

AVERAGE SPEED: 104.144 mph

WHAT HAPPENED: The hard-luck 1931 runner-up done an implausible quip in 1932. On a day 26 of 40 cars were separated in crashes or as a outcome of automatic failure, Frame gathering his automobile from a No. 27 starting mark into a lead on Lap 152 and hold on for a second-closest feat in competition history, 43.69 seconds over rookie Howdy Wilcox II. Only dual other drivers have come from that distant behind to win in 500 history, and Frame did it with a record normal speed, too.


NOTABLE: Frame’s winning time of 4 hours, 48 minutes, 3.79 seconds was roughly 10 mins faster than Billy Arnold’s prior record for a full 500 miles. Arnold, a 1930 winner, competent second though was knocked out in a pile-up after completing 59 laps and finished 31st in his final 500 start. Riding automechanic Harry Cox and motorist Milton Jones were both killed from injuries postulated in crashes during use that May.
