Gum Dipped

(Gum Dipped) A True Car Guy Will Understand! Jekyll Island, Ga USA 1920 For the first time ever, the Indy 500 is won on a single set of Firestone tires. The same feat isn't repeated until 41 races later...again, on a set of Firestone tires. This was also the year that Firestone perfected "gum-dipping," a method of insulating tire cords against internal heat.
