The attachment below contains three interesting articles all appearing on the same page of the March 23, 1910 Indianapolis Star.

All but forgotten, one of the great milestones of early automobile racing was Barney Oldfield's achievement of covering a lap on a mile track in less than a minute. Few people know about this event, and a large percentage of those that do confuse it with the first-ever achievement of traveling a mile in one minute anywhere. This was not a land speed record.
