No. 24 — Robbie Buhl — 2001 Purex G Force/Infiniti

Buhl was one of the drivers who benefited from the infamous split in open-wheel racing.

The former Indy Lights champion (1992) had trouble finding a ride in CART, but the arrival of the Indy Racing League in 1996 provided an opportunity.

He had success with both John Menard and Dreyer & Reinbold, winning a race for each.

Buhl’s Purex machine was one of the more striking liveries of that era.

In 2001, he started ninth and finished 15th in the 500.
