Yes, you are right about Troy, just found this amazing article:
"He is 62 now, but acquaintances say he looks better today--a trim 230 pounds distributed over his 6-foot-3 frame--than he did in 1952 when he weighed "about 265" the day he drove the Agajanian Special to victory at a then-record average speed of 128.922 m.p.h."
"Today, in another era, crippled drivers go through strenuous rehabilitation and return to their race cars as strong as ever.
But Ruttman says he spent his recuperation time drinking, gambling, womanizing and gaining weight.
"I'll bet I got up close to 300 pounds," he said. "I was all blubbery, and all I did was goof around. I didn't do what the docs said to do to take care of my arm, and after four or five months, it began to atrophy. From July '52 to May '54 I did everything I shouldn't have done."
But I would like to see names from "modern era".
