This rear-drive Miller won the 1928 Indianapolis 500 with Louis Meyer at the wheel. It was the first of three 500 victories for Meyer, who was to compete in 13 Indianapolis 500 Classics. The car was entered by Phil Shafer with Wilbur Shaw as driver, but Alden Sampson bought it a few days before the race for Meyer to drive. After Meyer's remarkable driving career, he became associated with Dale Drake and for many years they built Meyer-Drake Offenhauser engines which were to dominate in U.S. auto racing after World War II.
