They did not have wide slicks at that time. So two tires were used for extra traction.
Art Arfons early days?
Wow, you must be old.....as me.
Shouldn't this be under "The Art of Speed"?

That one there I believe is Green Monster No.6
Excuse me: "dualies."
Forget the dualies, look at all the positive camber on what appears to be a front drive axle!
All wheel drive it looks like.
Worked at a shop in '71 that the father had built an Indy 500 racer in the early 50's, I think. Ran dualies for traction (complete truck axle). Broke an axle shaft during the race, running top three, and tossed a set of wheels into the crowd, killing some of them. The son said the cam chain stretched 12 feet end to end. Said when it came into the pits, the intake was coated in ice, and the exhaust was glowing red. Serious horsepower to break an axle shaft!
