Footnotes

  • The Mallard-Offenhauser was uniquely remembered as the last front-engined car to race at Indy. Created by Jim Hurtubise, the car--much like Jim's racing career--ran against the grain. While mid-engined racers were proving themselves to be strong contenders, Hurtubise chose to make a modernized version of a front-engine roadster with his secret weapon being its light weight--at only 1350 pounds it weighed less than its competition--and turbocharged Offy motor placed far back in the frame aft of the front wheels. Hailing from upstate New York, Hurtubise named his racer after his favorite creature: the Mallard.

    While the car was quick, it only managed to qualify for Indy once and retired shortly after the start of the race with the same engine troubles that had plagued it in qualifying.
