30 Days in MayDay 15

No. 15 – Peter Revson — 1973 Gulf McLaren/Offy

A front-row starter the previous two 500s, Revson was the first qualifier for the 1973 race and wound up starting 10th and finished 31st after crashing coming out of Turn 4 after only three laps.

That year, I remember my mom taking me a drug store in the Speedway Shopping Center to meet Revson, who was promoting Rev-Up vitamins, and get an autographed picture, which I still have.
