February 3, 2013-Indy’s first 3 time winner

Louie Meyer 3

 

How about the crown, presented to Louie for being the 500’s 1st three time champion. This and several other related articles are on display at the Speedway’s Hall of Fame Museum.

The winners car photo is from his first win in 1928. He also won in 1933 and 1936. The 36′ victory established the tradition of the winner drinking milk, although in Louie’s case, he wanted Buttermilk:)
