over Bill Vukovich

William John Vukovich Sr. (; Serbian: Bil Vukovi?, ??? ???????; December 13, 1918 – May 30, 1955) was a Serbian American automobile racing driver. He won the 1953 and 1954 Indianapolis 500 plus two more American Automobile Association National Championship races. Several drivers of his generation have referred to Vukovich as the greatest ever encountered in American motorsport.

He was known variously as "Vuky" (/?vu?ki/ VOO-kee) and "The Mad Russian" (though he detested that name, having been born in Fresno, California, of Yugoslavian ancestry) for his intense driving style, as well as the "Silent Serb" for his cool demeanor. He was also referred to as the "Fresno Flash" in Floyd Clymer's Indy yearbooks, and in an interview (available at the Vukovich Accident link below) his former mechanic Jim Travers calls him "Vuke".
