AJ Foyt returned to Indy in 1993 looking to start his 36th straight Indianapolis 500. He was running good in practice as late as pole day morning, but a crash by team driver Robby Gordon prompted Foyt to realize that he needed to focus on being a car owner. Shortly before qualifying was to start, Foyt pulled out onto the track in his number 14 Lola as track announcer Tom Carnegie announced to the stunned crowd that this was AJ Foyt’s farewell lap. Robby Gordon qualified the number 41 car in 25th place and finished 27th after dropping out at lap 165 with a broken gearbox.
