The Marmon Wasp the winner of the first Indianapolis 500 which was driven to victory by Ray Harroun in 6 hours and 42 minutes. While that victory made Harroun famous, it was the man who made the car.

A part-time racer, Mr. Harroun was foremost an engineer for the Marmon Motor Car Company, an early 20th-century producer of passenger cars that are frequently cited as exemplars of the golden age of the American automobile. He designed the six-cylinder Marmon Wasp, so named for its yellow and black color scheme, from stock Marmon engine components.

Unlike most racecars of the period, the Wasp was built with a
smoothly-cowled cockpit and a long pointed tail to reduce air drag. And Mr. Harroun came up with another first that has caught on pretty well – a little item called a rear view mirror. He was the first driver to race without a riding mechanic to watch for cars from behind.
