Record updated 30-May-06
Arthur Thurman was from Washington, DC. He filed an entry to drive a National racing car in the races at Winfield on May 13, 1915 although it is unclear if he actually started any of the races that day. Driving his own Duesenberg Number 18, Thurman qualified eighteenth for the 1919 Indianapolis "500" with a speed of 98 m.p.h. but he crashed and was killed and his riding mechanic, Nicholas Molinero, was critically injured in the third turn on the 44th lap.
