Scott Dixon’s car to carry tribute to race fan Timothy Maude, killed in 9/11 attack on Pentagon

For the first time in the 103 years of the Indianapolis 500, a name will be displayed on a Chip Ganassi IndyCar racing car.

The name of Lieutenant General Timothy Maude will be written on the front wing end plate of the car driven by Scott Dixon. LTG Maude’s name will also appear on the windshield of Kurt Busch’s car during the Coca Cola 600 in Charlotte this weekend.

Timothy Maude was a racing fan, and took his wife and daughters to the Indy 500 in 1989. The daughters were uninterested before attending, and huge fans afterwards.

Lieutenant General Timothy Maude was the highest ranking U.S military official killed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. He was working in the Pentagon during the attacks, reports Taylor Tannebaum for WTHR.
