Sutton (constructor)


Sutton (constructor)

Sutton was a racing car constructor which participated in a single FIA World Championship race - the 1959 Indianapolis 500. Powered by a KK500G Offenhauser I-4, their car (a Dayton Steel Foundry/Walther) was driven by Mike Magill. On the 45th lap of the race, Magill was squeezed into the outside wall by the spinning car of Chuck Weyant; Magill flipped over, sliding upside down off the track and into the infield. Drivers Jud Larson and Red Amick, who spun trying to avoid the accident, both stopped and lifted the damaged Sutton upright to free Magill. Their actions, plus the Sutton's roll bars (made mandatory for the 1959 season), undoubtedly saved Magill's life.
