About the Author

Pat Kennedy attended his first Indianapolis 500 with his family in 1963 when he was six years old. He has not missed a race since. His interest and passion was immediate and has continued to grow, culminating in this collection. His grandfather and father sponsored racecars at Indy from 1936 to the early 1950s under the name of their family-owned business: the Kennedy Tank Special. Kennedy Tank and Manufacturing Company has been a supplier of pit fueling tanks for many years at Indy. Pat has continued the family tradition of involvement in the Indy 500. Pat is the president of a group of family-owned companies, including Kennedy Tank and Manufacturing Company (Indianapolis, Indiana); Southern Tank and Manufacturing Company (Owensboro, Kentucky), and Steel Tank and Fabricating Corp., (Columbia City, Indiana).
