Injured Joe Horan Watches Race

These are a pair of very brief items that provide a nice slice of life. Joe Horan, an Amplex driver that was injured in practice in the same car Art Greiner wrecked during the race (riding mechanic Sam Dickson was killed), had spent several days in a local hospital with a broken leg. On race day he was transported to the track in an ambulance and carried to the roof of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway's infield hospital. There he was provided a recliner chair to enjoy the race.
The article provides some nice background on other races Ray Harroun had won: the Wheeler-Schebler Trophy, Atlanta Speedway Trophy, the 100-mile stock car trophy at Los Angeles Motordrome and the Remy Brassard, among others.
