Born in 1902 and died in 1916, Bob Burman was an early hero of auto racing. He participated in many significant automotive events in the early 20th century, including winning the Prest-O-Lite Trophy Race in 1909 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the precursor to the Indy 500. Unfortunately, his love for racing is exactly what would kill him. Burman died in April 1916, at age 31, when he crashed his open-cockpit Peugeot on a track in Corona. #automotivefacts #AutomotiveHistory #funfacts #carfacts Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Indy 500, Inspire Others, Early 20th Century, Indie, Bob
