Billy Foster


Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
18.Sep.1937 - 20.Jan.1967


Billy Foster from British Columbia in his supermodified. He was the first Canadian to drive in the Indy 500 - 1965, and again in 1966. At the USAC sprint car race at Oswego Speedway, NY on 28 August 1966, Billy Foster drove the # 38 sprinter. Billy died in a crash two years later while practicing at Riverside, California for a NASCAR race - he was 29 years old. As a reaction to this crash, NASCAR instituted the now-common window net rule.
