The 1951 Indianapolis 500 was included as part of the Formula 1 Championship. However, no Formula 1 circuit racers took part in the race. In other words, there was no European crossover. Accordingly, I have chosen not to address the race, itself. Doing so, I think, would be distracting to my overall project. However, I will throw some footage of the 1951 Indy 500 your direction.
