This outstanding sketch by artist David Story includes some interesting notes he has made in the margin. The art was inspired by a famous photograph taken by Russian photographer Nathan Lazarnick on the morning of the first Indianapolis 500 in 1911.
May 30, 1913 - Indianapolis 500 race day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The morning newspaper greeted readers with stories about the final time trials of the day before when at last the Italian Isottas - in the hands of Harry Grant and Teddy Tetzlaff - qualified to compete. The track had been open for practice since 6 o'clock the evening before.
