De Palma, Chevrolet Entered

This article was published September 7, 1916 and summarized entries for the September 9 Harvest Classic at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Two of the more prominent names were Ralph De Palma (Peugeot) and Louis Chevrolet (Sunbeam). De Plama's entry was significant because he missed the May Indianapolis 500 (in 1916 the "500" was scheduled for only 300 miles) when he played games with Speedway management in negotiating for appearance money as the defending champion.
