AJ Foyt, the legend of the NTT IndyCar Series, celebrates his 88th birthday today. Foyt is not only a four-time Indianapolis 500 winner but is also a team owner with his team, AJ Foyt Racing having had big changes ahead of the start of the 2023 season as they have an all-new driver line-up with Benjamin Pedersen getting set to make his series race debut in the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg which takes place from March 3-5.
Foyt became the first driver to win the Indianapolis 500 four times in, 1961, 1964, 1967 and 1977. Foyt has more wins than anyone in NTT IndyCar Series history with 67 victories under his belt as a driver.
Six-time NTT IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon, driver of the No.9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda is the nearest challenger to this record having scored his 53rd career victory at the 2022 Big Machine Music City Grand Prix.
Paddock Eye wishes AJ Foyt a very Happy Birthday and all the best for 2023.
