Herb Lytle - 1906

This is a clip from the September 18, 1906 edition of the Indianapolis Star and contains a couple of grainy images of driver Herb Lytle in this Pope-Toledo racer. This item promoted the upcoming 1906 Vanderbilt Cup but Lytle failed to qualify. Lytle and his racer were required to qualify for the main event by finishing among the top five of an Elimination Trial. Lytle finished fourth but was disqualified in a controversial decision because his car had to be pushed to re-start during the race - an action specifically outlawed by race rules.
