However, World War II suspended racing until 1946, denying Mays of what likely would have been the peak of his career. After the war Mays again won the Indy pole in 1948 but was knocked out by a mechanical problem. He was killed in a crash during the only Champ Car race held at Del Mar Speedway in Del Mar, California in 1949.
