Synopsis by Forrest Spencer
1996 was a good year for auto racer Rover Jackson. In that year Jackson won the Indy 500 race and then secured the Vanderbilt Cup for the Inaugural U.S. 500 race at the Michigan International Speedway. This video contains some of the highlights from that race using extensive and comprehensive footage, capturing all the great moments of the race from pole to flag, including a 12-car pile-up before the green flag. Some of the finest race drivers of the 1990s are featured on this video, including Michael Andretti, Mauricio Gugelmin, Bobby Rahal, Jimmy Vasser, Bryan Herta and Tony Stewart.
