Indy Car Team Owner Pat Patrick Dies At 91

PHOENIX — Three-time Indianapolis 500 winning team owner Pat Patrick died on Jan. 5. Patrick was one of the most influential team owners of his era and he played a vital role in the leadership and direction of Indy car racing during the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s. Patrick Racing was formed in 1970 with Johnny Rutherford driving and steadily became one of the sport’s key teams. Gordon Johncock drove a Patrick car to victory in the rain-shortened Indianapolis 500 in 1973, giving the team owner his first triumph in The Greatest Spectacle in Racing. Patrick fielded cars for the Indianapolis 500 from 1970 through 1995 and again in 2004.
