Harry Knight

Driver's Marriage Hinged on Winning Money


This is a small item - but amusing. Westcott driver Harry Knight had won the hand of Jennie Dollie, a beautiful Hungarian dancer, prior to the first Indianapolis 500. Sort of. The nuptials were contingent on Knight winning big money in the race. He didn't. He wrecked. I don't know if the nuptials ever took place. If you do, let me know.
