Injured Competitors Speak from Hospital

These articles were published June 1, 1911 in the Indianapolis Star. The most important of three articles you will want to review is titled, "Battered Racers are Still Game." The reporter who developed this article about drivers and riding mechanics injured in the first running of the Indianapolis 500 visited the men in the citry's Methodist Episcopal Hospital. Among those interviewed were Lozier mechanic Dave Lewis, Jackson mechanic Robert Evans, Case mechanic Leo Anderson and Westcott mechanic John Glover.
The other larger article discusses the departure of the wave of guests from other cities, states and countries. Finally, another article provides an open letter from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to the citizens of Indianapolis, commending them for their hospitality to visitors to the Hoosier capitol.
