George Anthony Metzler, Jr
Birth: 1912
Death: Jun. 3, 1949

Race car driver. During a practice session on the final day of qualifications for the 1949 Indianapolis 500, Metzler lost control of his car in the first turn. He struck the retaining wall and suffered critical head and chest injuries. He never regained consciousness and lost his struggle for life in the intensive care unit of Indianapolis' Methodist Hospital. Metzler, who was never able to qualify for a starting position in the 500-Mile Classic, had entered as a driver for the third time. (bio by: Warrick L. Barrett)
