Lester Spangler (January 15, 1906 – May 30, 1933) was an American racecar driver. He and his riding mechanic Monk Jordan were killed while competing in the 1933 Indy 500. With Spangler on the 132nd lap, the car driven by Malcolm Fox spun coming out of turn one, and was rolling slowly towards the top the track. Spangler tried to get by on the outside, but ran out of room and plowed into Fox's car head on at over 100 miles per hour. Spangler's car rolled over while still maintaining its speed, ejecting the driver and mechanic.[1]
