Becoming the Brickyard

This is a collection of articles published during the Fall of 1909 concerning the work to pave the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with 3.2 million bricks. The great speed facility was tagged with the name, "The Brickyard" before the work was done.

Brickyard Pamphlet

The two attachments (Brick Brochure) are pdf files of a pamphlet that provides the best overview of the brands of bricks that were used to pave the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the autumn of 1909. It was prepared by John Blazier and Tom Rollings - who did historians and aficionados of our sport a great service through their work.
