George Bailey (September 25, 1900 in Indianapolis, Indiana - May 7, 1940 in Indianapolis, Indiana) was an American racecar driver active in the 1930s. He was killed in a crash during practice for the 1940 Indianapolis 500, when his gasoline tank exploded. He lost control of his car and skidded sideways into a concrete wall. It spun back across the track and hit the inside guard rail, causing the gasoline tank to explode.[1]
