In the 1950 Indy 500, the first 30 cars were all powered by Offenhauser engines, and by 1954, every car that finished was powered by an Offy. The full history of how Harry Miller's shop foreman, Fred Offenhauser, refined the legendary Miller twin-cam four-cylinder race engines, and highlights of their unparalleled dominance in oval-track, sprint-car and Pike's Peak racing. Contains photographs of all the great Offenhauser-powered race cars.
