Strang at New Orleans - 1908

This is a very brief item from the November 8, 1908 Indianapolis Star concerning one of America's top-flight drivers of the day, Lewis Strang. Strang was a busy man. He was preparing for the 1908 American Grand Prize but prior to that he was taking a stab at the world's speed record for 24 hours. The article is poorly written which might be the result of a botched editing job to size it down from a more comprehensive report. The confusion is that it says Strang was going to Savannah where he would attempt to break George Robertson's 24 hour record at Brighton Beach. Obviously that was not his Savannah objective. Almost in the same sentence the article abruptly shifts to mentioning New Orleans as the racing venue - which it was.
