Dick Rathmann Born In Los Angeles, California - January 6, 1924

January 6, 1924 - February 1, 2000
Dick Rathmann 
Born in Los Angeles, California, USA.
Dick was the elder brother of 1960 Indianapolis 500 winner Jim Rathmann. Jim and Dick switched names in 1946 so that his younger brother could enter a race while underage. For what was supposed to be a short time, he adopted the name "Dick" and his brother adopted the name "Jim." The name change stuck for life.
