Great color shot, from 1957, Agabashian qualified 4th quick but had a fuel tank leak and dropped out on lap 107 in 22nd place. Fred Agabashian was one of the 1950's top drivers, was a midget champ in northern CA. In fact his crew chief at Indy was George Bignotti, who owned the midget that Agabashian won so many races in. Agabashian sat on the pole at Indy in 1952 driving the "Cummins Diesel Spl". The car in the picture is a Kurtis built KK500G model roadster with Offenhauser power under the hood.
