AOAI Secretary Bill Krueger was a co-op engineering student at Purdue University and worked in Indianapolis when not in class on main campus in West Lafayette , Indiana . During those work sessions in Indy , Bill and his roommates would attend the Indy 500 practice runs , time trials and fuel tests whenever possible . In about 1967 or 1968 he took this picture of Andy Granatelli on the Indy pit road . He has no idea on Andy ’ s buddy in the slide — maybe another AOAIer can fill in the blank .
