Every year Bill Akin brings a beautiful piece of automotive racing history that is totally unique to the Holley NHRA Hot Rod Reunion and this year he brought his 1962 Indianapolis roadster that he restored in the basement of his home in Hermitage Tennessee. In 2013, after restoring the car, Mr. Akin took the car to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where he won the Post War Indy Roadsters class and also the Tony Hulman Preservation Award. The car was driven in 1962 by Don Branson at the Indy 500 where it finished in 12th place.
