The Crown Hill Heritage Foundation and the Indiana Racing Memorial Association have erected a marker to Celebrate Indianapolis Racing Legends. The marker is in section 13 at the base of the hill below Carl Fisher’s Mausoleum.
Some 58 Indianapolis Racing Legends are interred in Crown Hill Cemetery or the Mausoleum. The Speedway’s Founding Fathers: Carl G. Fisher, James A. Allison, Arthur C. Newby, and Frank H. Wheeler are all buried there. Famous racing drivers like “Cannon Ball” Baker, George Amick, Tony Bettenhausen, Jr., Floyd Davis, Jim Hurtubise, and Louis Schwitzer. Race builders like the Duesenberg brothers, the Marmon brothers, and Harry C. Stutz. And famous racing mechanics like George Bignotti, “Cotton” Henning, and A. J. Watson.
