Gary Beck showed up at Indy in 1972 an unknown running a car, in partnership with McLean & Lawrence, out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The Seattle native had some FED experience but this was only his second race in an RED and his first at a national event. By the end of the weekend everybody knew who Gary Beck was and would for years to come. He beat Jerry Ruth, (King of the Northwest) in the final. His 6.11 was only five-hundredths of a second slower than the national record Ruth established that same day.
