Sunday 29th May 1977
A.J. Foyt, known as “SuperTex,” became the first four-time winner of the Indy 500, driving a Coyote-Foyt of his own design. Foyt started the race in the fourth spot, unseating pole-sitter Tom Sneva, who finished second, and holding off a charge from fellow racing legend Al Unser. Janet Guthrie, the first woman to compete and finish at Indy, placed ninth.
