Although it was his first start at Indy, Meyer is not considered a rookie winner as he drove 41 laps in releif of Wilbur Shaw in 1927. Nevertheless, 1928 was the third consecutive year that a first year starter won the 500 - the only time in history that has happened, (the only other time first year starter won in consecutive years was 2000 and 2001).

Driving for car owner Alden Sampson, Meyer took the lead with 19 laps left to take what would be his first of three Indianapolis 500 wins. This was also the first year the winner got to take home the pace car.
