Ray Harroun

Harroun's Hour of Triumph


I found an interesting article that attempts to paint the picture of Ray Harroun immediately after winning the first Indianapolis 500. The back-slappers surrounding, the "Kodak Fiends" (to quote the article) snapping intrusive pictures, his lips split from dehydration and horse mounted police trotting beside and in front of him to carve a path through the throng and allow him to drive the Marmon Wasp back to the garage area. A little hyperbolic, but a good read.
