Greg Littleton remembers being at The Indianapolis Motor Speedway when he was 4-years-old in 1955. He has been passionate about it since that first visit.
Greg, who grew up on the near northeast side of Indianapolis, lives with his wife of nearly 50 years, Teri, in Columbus, Indiana.
His first book, The Roadsters of Indianapolis, in conjunction with Bill Enoch, has been more successful than he had dared hope. It is a real collectors item. If this book is nearly as successful he will be satisfied that his attempt to document the history of his favorite time period was rewarded.
The Month of May – Pole Day – Qualifications/Time Trials – Bump Day – time has greatly changed these iconic labels concerning the Indianapolis 500, however they were/are as big a part of the famous race as the race itself. For the entire month of May the buildup that would ultimately culminate in The Indianapolis 500. The progression of the competitors as they worked to find enough speed to win the Pole Position, a front-row starting spot or a slot near the front of the starting lineup, or any place in the field. It was truly the race to make the race.
