George Souders led the last 51 laps of the 1927 race after starting in 22nd position as a race rookie. 1927 was the last year of Duesenberg's appearances in the Indy 500. They were designed and built to reduce wind resistance.They lowered and offset the engines and ran the driveline beside the driver. This had the added advantage of lowering the center of gravity of the car. But, it was rookie George Souders who won the race and he reportably drove a two year old Duesenberg.
