Joan Cuneo Image

This attachment was published in the Indianapolis Star on July 28, 1908. It is an image of Joan Cuneo, the top female race driver of the early 20th Century. Cuneo enjoyed reasonable success with the best example coming in 1909 on an oval dirt track in New Orleans. The New Orleans event triggered action by the American Automobile Association (AAA) to curtail the participation of women in auto racing.
