Close of September 1910 Race Meet

This is another great article on the closing day of the September 1910 race meet at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Excellent coverage of the 200 mile finale won by Johnny Aitken. Note, too, the small item on the final page of this collection. It is a tiny but interesting story about Ray Harroun taking a ride in Carl Fisher's balloon, "Indiana," which was being fine tuned by creator and Fisher ballooning mentor, George L. Bumbaugh.
