Brian Robson never shaves his beard on the morning of the Indianapolis 500.
That’s because his grandfather, Hal Robson, a three-time Indianapolis 500 starter was a superstitious man who started the family tradition.
Hal Robson first raced at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1946.
It was the same year his brother, George Robson, won the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.
Hal Robson: “I spent a lot of time with my grandfather and that’s why I always wanted to be in racing.”
“It’s all for the love of the Indianapolis 500,” Hal Robson said with a smile.
