In the March 2005 issue of Vintage Oval Racing magazine, there was an article on George Barringer written by Bill Barringer, his son. It contained information about George’s career and Indy racing. We contacted the magazine about getting in touch with Mr. Barringer for more information on his dad.
George “Tex” Barringer died along with the 1946 Indy 500 winner, George Robson, in an accident at Atlanta’s Lakewood Speedway on September 2, 1946.
