Briarcliff Preparation

These two articles from the Indianapolis Star discuss preparations for the Briarcliff road race held in April 1908. The first article was published November 10, 1907 and while it does not call out the specific Briarcliff event I am confident this is what is discussed. In this article the decision about exactly what course will be selected is under review. The later article, published Februrary 3, 1908, reports the April 24 date of the event and a healthy sign of interest from auto manufacturers. This article also notes the upcoming March stock car race in Savannah, Georgia.
