In this film Wilbur Shaw, as president of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, was well-qualified to drive the pace car in the actual 1949 race used in this film. Prior to managing IMS he was the 2nd three-time winner of the Indianapolis 500 & only back-to-back winner ('39, '40). His book "Gentlemen Start Your Engines" is considered the primer for the Golden Age of auto racing in the United States. See more
During qualifying in Billy Coy's first race in the hot rod, there is a substance (sand or oil dry) on the track surface, in turn one, during his warm-up lap, and during his first green flag lap. During the next 2 laps, turn one no long has the substance on it, but after Billy receives the checkered flag, the substance is back on the track, and tire tracks can be seen going through the substance.
