That’s Josef Newgarden.  It was at the 2012 Indy 500.  Newgarden was driving a Honda powered car entered by Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing.  Newgarden’s shirt shows the Honda logo and was the same shirt he was wearing in another picture taken that same year that appeared in the June 7, 2012 newsletter.  That photo also had Howard and the Black Beast.

All I can make out of it is that he might be a driver for the Dollar General Team by the shirt he’s wearing and it was at one of the race tracks that you were at,most likely Indianapolis,because of the long straightaway and bleachers you. Hope you liked that picture I sent you.

Howard, great post, a bit new history to add to our knowledge. I spent time with Parker Wickham talking about old car companies from NY several times, but I had not known the Grant. Thanks, it was great reading. (BTW, I agree with John B. above, it would be great to post a now challenge for Long Islands Oldest Car!)
Best Regards,
Scott

The red car appears to be a 1931 Chrysler Imperial 8 CG Dual-Cowl Phaeton, probably by le Baron.  Drool, drool.  Sam, III

Mystery Foto #38… The celebrity driver is Indy car driver, Josef Newgarden.
Driving for Penske, I believe.

Howard Kroplick is the celebrity driver in my mind!  But I believe the answer is Josef Newgarden who until 2017 drove for the Sarah Fisher Harman Racing Honda team.  Now he is racing for Team Penske.  Newgarden is an athlete (participated in the NFL Combine and the Indiana Pacers Slam Dunk contest), actor (episode of “American Made Ninja”) and model.

Picture taken at the 2012 Indy 500 Brickyard community event in May of that year, a few days prior to the actual race.

Thanks for this interesting post about this for me unknown pioneer. Another one, after the Reese tricycle. How many of these must have existed in those days ... Interesting is the passage in the Schrader letter where they promise to take good care of the car. I understand the firm is still in existence, so I would presume they should know!

That’s Josef Newgarden who was a rookie driver for the Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing Honda team when the photo was taken on May 23, 2012. It was during the Wednesday Community Day events at Indianapolis, IN leading up to that year’s Indy 500 Race.
