Jochen Rindt raced in the Indianapolis 500 with an Eagle Mk I 1967, but finished only 24th and 32nd, completing only five laps in 1968 after finishing slightly more than half of the 1967 race. In an interview in 2014, Heinz Prüller recalled Rindt speaking about Indianapolis in 1967: In Indianapolis, I always feel like I am on my way to my own funeral. It is catastrophic, I only drive there because of the money.
