The Press Condemns Track Racing

This front page article in the August 24, 1905 edition of Motor Age boldly proclaims that track racing is "doomed to die." The feature article is supported by sidebars and a grim-looking editorial cartoon. All of this provides a flavor for the criticism leveled at auto racing, and especially racing on horse tracks during this tumultuous and sometimes violent era. This is a must read for anyone seeking to understand how the sport was viewed at this point.
