Did you know that 4 time Indy 500 winner Rick Mears started his career as an off road racer? Mears, who also holds the record of 6 Indy 500 pole position starts, raced buggies with his off road racing star brother Roger Mears. There was a few other rides, such as the Parnelli Jones Chevrolet pictured above, but most fans remember the Mears brothers battling it out at Riverside Raceway.
