about Troy Ruttman

Troy Ruttman (born March 11, 1930 in Mooreland, Oklahoma – May 19, 1997) was an American race car driver. He was the older brother of NASCAR driver Joe Ruttman, Jerry Ruttman & Jimmie Ruttman

Ruttman won the Indianapolis 500 in 1952, at the age of 22 years and 80 days. As of 2017, he is the youngest winner of the race.

From 1950–1960, the Indianapolis 500 also counted toward the World Drivers' Championship (now synonymous with Formula One), although most of the racers did not compete in the other races in the Championship. Ruttman was the first Indianapolis 500 winner to participate in a Formula One event beyond Indy and his 1952 Indy 500 win earned him the distinction of being the youngest driver to win a round of the World Championship, an honor he held until Fernando Alonso won the 2003 Hungarian Grand Prix.
