The split-second that Foyt crossed the finish line, winning the 1964 Indy 500 into an A.J. Watson roadster was the beginning of the end for the beautiful front-engined race cars. But not before the Flathead Ford boys like Pat Flaherty in 1956, Rodger Ward in 1959, Jim Rathmann in 1960, Rodger Ward again in 1962, and Parnelli Jones in 1963 all in Watson/Offy-powered roadsters. What a legacy.
