This Indianapolis 500 perennial began racing midgets after the war, but it was more than a decade before he joined the USAC trail, soon developing a reputation as a shrewd tactician who looked after his cars. However, he never succeeded in winning the '500' - third place in 1964 was his best finish - though he came heart-breakingly close on a number of occasions, notably in 1969, when a routine pit stop went disastrously wrong.

In the early sixties Ruby also went sports car racing with a Lotus Monte Carlo, and became a local attraction at the 1961 US GP in a guest appearance in a Lotus 18. His mechanical sympathy prompted Ford to take him into their sports car team to develop their prototype and he won the Daytona 24 Hours in 1965 and 1966 with Ken Miles. This experienced pairing also took a win at Sebring in 1966, but injury caused Lloyd to miss Le Mans and a chance of victory.
