Artist: Colin Carter
This print is taken from an edition of 850 by world renowned artist Colin Carter. A.J.Foyt was driving a Ford powered Coyote at the 1967 Indianapolis 500 and, in the latter stages of the race was following leader Parnelli Jones’ STP Turbine until, with just three laps to go, Jones’ transmission bearing broke and A.J. swept into the lead. As he was about to take the checkered flag a multi-car crash blocked his way. Changing down to second gear he managed to make his way through the flaming fuel, dense smoke and flying wheels to record his third Indy 500 victory and was the only car to complete all 200 laps, and at a record speed of 151.207mph. With a record breaking 4 Indy 500 victories and 35 consecutive Indy 500 race starts, ‘Supertex’ has become an all time Indianapolis legend. Size 22 1/2″ x 31″. A limited edition of 850 signed and numbered prints signed by artist Colin Carter and A J Foyt.
