Indy 500s:

2 (1931-1933)

Malcolm was a decent midfield runner, but after being involved in the crash that killed Les Spangler in the 1933 Indy 500, he never had the same feeling about the sport, and retired at the end of 1934. Fox worked as a bus driver in Westville before - and indeed during - his racing career, but the crash that killed Spangler meant Fox lost a lot of love for any driving, in 1940, he was working as a gardener in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. Fox moved around the US a lot as in 1954, he was working as a salesman in Seattle, Washington and by the time of his death, he had been working as the President of the Fox-Nailer Corporation, his own equipment rentals business. Fox died suddenly of a heart-attack, aged sixty-two and was buried back in his favourite area of Rhode Island.
