Prep for Balloon Races - 1910

This article discusses preparations for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway's national championship balloon races in September 1910. The Speedway hosted these races both in 1909 and 1910. The decision reflected Speedway President Carl Fisher's love of aviation. The 1910 season was particularly busy for the Speedway as it hosted an auto show in March, three major automobile race meets, an aviation meet featuring the Wright Brothers and the balloon championship.
