Speedway Expands Grandstands

This content was originally published in May 31, 1910 Indianapolis Star. Three meaty articles summarize the May 1910 race meet at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the first major race meet after the track was paved with 3.2 million bricks the previous autumn.  Among the topics covered are Ray Harroun's Remy Brassard 50-mile race win, plans to expand track grandstands, Barney Oldfield's records and plans for the racers as they moved on to other racing venues. Good summary of the meet.


The first article discusses the Speedway's expansion plans to add new seating capacity. The May race meet attracted so many people the grandstands at the time could not accommodate them and the first sizable infield crowd was produced.
