Answer to Trivia: In 1965, rookies Mario Andretti, Gordon Johncock, and Al Unser made their Speedway debuts finishing 3rd, 5th, and 9th respectively. All were running at the end. At the end of this season, Gary Bettenhausen (rookie in 1968) will remain as the only active IndyCar driver who began his Champ car career in the 1960's.
