Heroic Riding Mechanic

This article is one of those rare and interesting pieces that focuses on the role of the riding mechanic. The byline reads "A Novice," and the scribe was an Indianapolis Star report that did four laps with Harry Endicott on May 26, 1911 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Not only does he describe the sensations, but also recounts a couple stories about the role of professional riding mechanics. Well worth the read, the article was published in the Indianapolis Star on May 27, 1911.
