George “Little George” Amick

Auto Race Car Driver. Surviving the multi-car crash on the first lap of the 1958 Indianapolis 500, “Little George” drove the Demler Special #99 to a second place finish, earning him Rookie of the Year honors. On April 4, 1959 the United States Auto Club (USAC) conducted it’s first and only race on the newly constructed Daytona International Speedway. He won the pole for the 100 mile event at a speed of 176.818 mph, just shy of the closed course record of 176.9 set by Tony Bettenhausen at Monza, Italy in 1957. On the final lap he lost control of his roadster in the third turn, causing it flip violently up side down resulting in his death. George Amick became the second driver to die at Daytona, following Marshall Teague who had perished on February 11, during preparations for this race.
