Hero: "Farmer" Bill Endicott

This package contains an interesting item about "Farmer" Bill Endicott at a May 13, 1911 race at Latonia, a track near Cincinnati. Endicott was praised for keeping his head when entangled in a multi-car pile-up at the start of the race. He dashed down the backstretch to warn race leaders of the cars blocking the track. Boy, did these guys need a yellow-light system!
Also, there are images of Louis Disbrow's Pope-Hartford entry for the first Indianapolis 500 as well as a shot of Arthur Chevrolet's Buick after he wrecked it in practice. The articles appeared in the May 14, 1911 Indianapolis Star.
