Ban on Buicks Lifted

This article was published the morning of the first day of the July 1910 races at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. This is particularly important to researchers because a good portion of the articles focuses on the ongoing debate over the rules compliance of the Buick 16 racers. Eventually labeled "Marquette-Buicks," the debate raged over whether the cars were truly stock cars or purpose-built racers. After winning several of the races during the meet, the cars were disqualified later in the month. The controversy cast a shadow over the results over the race.
