sad news

Heard recently that Frank Weiss, originally out of Alberta and having moved his business to the U.S., has passed away.

Frank William Weiss of Plainfield died Jan. 31. He was 69.

Born July 25, 1944, in Cardston Alberta, Canada, he was the son of William and Mary Aldridge Weiss. He married Marilyn Neilson on July 8, 1963, in Idaho. She survives. The couple has been married for 50 years.

Mr. Weiss was founder and president of Frank Weiss Racing Components in Indianapolis which was in business for 33 years. He drove at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and participated in USAC, CART, and Indy Car Series.

The first three photos are from the Indianapolis 500 Yearbook for 1980.

The fourth one is from Wheelspin in 1968.

The last is from 1973, the Spokane Daily Chronicle.
