"Motor Age" Harvest Classic Coverage

This article about the Harvest Classic was originally published in Motor Age in the September 14, 1916 edition. Excellent coverage supplemented by several tables of finishing order, drivers, equipment and even times and speeds. Lots of good color commentary about Eddie Rickenbacker (back before he changed his name from Rickenbacher), Johnny Aitken, Ralph De Palma and driver Tom Rooney who watched from the stands, still mending a leg broken in the Brickyard's Memorial Day Classic. This is the best quick summary of the September 9, 1916 Harvest Classic at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
