A.J. Foyt Enterprises

A.J. Foyt, the first four-time winner of the Indianapolis 500, founded A.J. Foyt Enterprises, a race shop based in Waller, Texas, in 1965.

Foyt has won more Indianapolis-style championship races (67) than any driver in history. He has a record seven national Indy-style driving championship titles to his name and a total of 12 major driving championships in various categories.

Foyt has raced everything from midgets to stock cars. He won the 24 Hours of LeMans in 1967 and the Daytona 500 in 1972. He is the only driver to win those two events along with the Indianapolis 500, which he won in 1961, 1964, 1967 and 1977. He was the inaugural inductee into the Motorsports Hall of Fame in 1989.

Foyt retired from driving Indy cars in 1993 to concentrate his efforts on team ownership but returned to the driver's seat at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1994 to compete in the inaugural Brickyard 400 NASCAR race.

Foyt earned his first Indianapolis 500 victory solely as a car owner with driver Kenny Brack in 1999. Foyt's team won IndyCar Series titles in 1996 and 1998. His son, Larry, is the team director.
