January 28, 2013-Jimmy Bryan Happy Birthday

The “Arizona Cowboy”, 1958 Indy winner, was born today in 1926 in Phoenix, AZ. In 9 starts from 1952 to 1960 he had 4 top 10’s and led 216 laps. His winning drive saw him lead 139 of the 200 laps.

BTW: Jimmy almost won the “Fantasy 500” 🙂

Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of “My Hero, My friend Jimmy Bryan by Len Gasper. Great read!
