Anthony Joseph Foyt, Jr has been fond of saying if there was no Hulman-George family there wouldn't have been an AJ Foyt. The truth is if there was no AJ Foyt and he hadn't given the fledging series his unwavering support there likely wouldn't be an Indy Racing League today.

His four wins, two places and three shows in 35 runs at the Greatest Spectacle in Racing are nothing short of epic. Best wishes for 73 more years of taking on all comers, be they drivers, bulldozers, bees, whatever. You may well outlive us all.

    I love that man, Indy to me would be nothing if there wasn't Foyt. I hate he's getting older. But Foyt 50 years was a nice tribute last year.
