No. 6 — Roger McCluskey 1971 Sprite Kuzma/Ford

An underrated but respected veteran, Roger McCluskey didn’t have a lot of luck at Indianapolis.

His ninth-place finish in 1971 was his first top 10 in 11 tries. His sponsor, Sprite, was quite active in the 500 during this era. In addition to backing cars, it also awarded a trophy and $6,000 to the pole winner.

This was known as the “Sprite and Six” award.
