    In addition to his Formula One exploits, Brabham ran at the Indy 500 four times, including a 9th place finish in 1961. Brabham cars won five USAC (pre-curser to the IndyCar Series) events and Mario Andretti won the 1965 USAC championship in a car that was a clone of a Brabham chassis, built under license from Brabham. This according to Wiki'o'pedia.

    What a gentleman. I watched him race when I was a kid and I admired him tremendously! He ranks right up there with the all-time greats. That's for sure. RIP, sir.
