May Race Meet Well Attended

This article reviews the events of the first day of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway's May 1910 race meet. Despite ideal weather conditions, only one speed record was set when Tommy Kincaid won a five mile sprint for National. This was the official christening for the newly brick paved track as the only previous event at the Brickyard was a series of time trials with relatively few cars held in bitter cold the previous December. An excerpt from the article says, "The new brick track was as smooth and clean as a model houswife's floor. Extensive improvements had been made since the races last fall, the seating capacity of the stands and bleachers being almost doubled..." The article was published May 27, 1910.
