Indy 500s:

9 (1931-1938)

Killed in a sprint car crash. Fine sprint car driver who was also, unusually at the time, very adept at road races. Winn was also one of the best dirt-track racers of his generation. A small, somewhat stocky man, he liked his clothes and wore plus fours for a time whilst racing, as well as his red shirt and helmet. Winn, as well as racing, had started working in his wife's (who was Joe Russo's widow) furniture company for a career once his racing had finished, but sadly it was not to be.
