‘Baby Borg’ Honor Speaks Volumes about Humble Johncock

Gordon Johncock, a two-time winner of the Indianapolis 500, was honored Monday in front of family, friends and former team members with a “Baby Borg” trophy to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his first victory in “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” in 1973. Johncock’s wife, Sue, also received a lovely bouquet, courtesy of BorgWarner’s Steve Shunck. “BorgWarner is incredibly proud to honor Gordon Johncock with a retro Baby Borg to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his 1973 Indianapolis 500 win,” Collins said. It takes a whole team to win at Indy or any race and they were right by my side for all those years, and I’m happy to see them, too. It takes a lot of luck to win Indy, it’s the hardest and greatest race to win in the world. “It’s good to be back in Indianapolis and see everyone and have fun today and tell stories and share the good time again.
