The 4-time Indianapolis 500 winner started racing in the 1950’s, so far back, he’s the last driver to win the 500 in a front engine roadster. That was in 1964 when the Leafs were actually winning Stanley Cups!
Known for his intensity and oft-time firey temper, AJ is still very much involved in the sport, campaigning Takuma Sato in the IndyCar Series.
He’s a true living legend still among us, and not too many sports can boast that!
Most recently, Anthony Joseph spent nearly a month in a Houston hospital recovering from complications after triple by-pass heart surgery in November.
He continues to mend at home and hopes to be well enough to work this May’s Indy 500 with his team.
Happy Birthday AJ!
