Jim Hurtubise 1960 Indy 500 Offenhauser Kurtis Kraft race car 1:18

$ 149.99

Jim Hurtubise #56 Indy 500 Kurtis Kraft Watson Indy 500 Roadster race car. Free 1960 Indy 500 race program. Carousel Limited Edition 1 of 4405. The race car is approx 8.5 in. long and 3.5 in wide. Jim arrived at the 1960 500 as a rookie. Hurtibise made his qualifying attempt on the last crucial day of qualifying at the Brickyard. As dark clouds gathered his first lap at 148.002 was the fastest lap ever turned at Indy. He followed that with laps of 149.603, 149.402, and 149.601. The average speed for the four lap run was 149.056 almost 2 1/2 miles an hour faster than Eddie Sachs had run to win the pole position on the first day of qualifying. The speedways qualifying procedures stated the 1st , 2nd, and 3rd day qualifiers start ahead of the last day runners. This entitled Jim to a 23rd starting position, but he was the new track record holder. Hurtibise finished 18th after running as high as fifth place. Very good for a rookie. At the height of his racing career Jim was badly burned in a racing accident. He asked the doctors, while getting skin grafts, to shape his hands to hold on to a sterring wheel. He did drive again but it was not the same.
