Harroun's Relief Driver, Cyrus Patschke


One of my latest additions is an Indianapolis News article from May 31, 1911 on how relief driver Cyrus Patschke helped Ray Harroun win the first Indianapolis 500 for the Marmon team. Patschke's contributions are well known to many historians, but there isn't a great deal of information about him that is readily accessible. Check out my article from the 2008 Indianapolis 500 program.
