1910 Year End Speed Summary

Frankly, this article lacks substance for auto racing fans. It has an image of Barney Oldfield in his Lightning "Blitzen" Benz and notes his outstanding accomplishment of nine months earlier. The article is a generalized summary of a variety of speed records that occurred during 1910 - foot races, horse races and, of course, Oldfield's 131.7 miles per hour run down the sands of Daytona Beach. It's a period piece, but you can do better if you are researching Oldfield or land speed records.
