Witherill Remains Proud of Making Indy 500 History in 2001

Cory Witherill owns the G-Force chassis that he and Indy Regency Racing used to qualify for his only Indianapolis 500 start, in 2001. “It’s still complete,” Witherill said of what was then the No. Qualifying for the “500” continues to be the most-celebrated moment in Witherill’s motorsports career. But it was the engine offered by Menard that likely was the difference in the team making the race. Pretty much everything,” said Witherill, who became the last Indy Regency driver to compete at Indy. Interestingly, a trophy won in the 2003 Infiniti Pro Series generally gets people talking about Witherill’s racing past. Witherill and Taylor had an even closer moment in Turn 3 a few laps later.
