Some interesting Indy 500 history from 100 years ago...

In 1913 Henry Ford attempts to enter the 410 cubic inch Ford "Special" in the Indy 500. The Ford "Special" has been winning races against bigger cars since 1910, usually with Ford Driver Frank Kulick at the wheel.

Ford is told he must add 1,000 lbs to the car, and replies "we're building race cars, not trucks."
