FORTVILLE — History looks back at you on the kitchen counter of Rod Hiday’s Fortville home.
There’s the easy smile of Johnnie Parsons, the lone winner of the Indianapolis 500 to have his name misspelled on the Borg-Warner Trophy.
A few inches over is A.J. Foyt on the 1965 voucher, smiling after his 1964 triumph, the second of his four 500 victories.
A quick glance across the counter, and you spot 1965 victor Jim Clark, surrounded by the gold and teal border of the 1966 ticket – the 50th running of the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing.”
