Kiser vs. Oldfield

This package contains two articles concerning a two day race meet at Columbus, Ohio, July 3 & 4, 1905. The feature event was the Columbus Motor Derby, which featured three cars racing in three heats. Barney Oldfield met his nemisis Earl Kiser in the final. Kiser's Winton Bullet II defeated Oldfield on his Green Dragon. Oldfield had driven the Bullet for much of the 1903 and 1904 seasons.  There was also a 24 hour event, but no records were set and it clearly was secondary to the Oldfield - Kiser match race in the promoter's mind. One article appeared in Motor Age and the other in The Automobile.
