Frank Fox - May 1910

This image orginally appeared in the May 28, 1910 Indianapolis Star. It supported articles covering the first day of racing at the May 1910 race meet at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. These were part of the May 1910 weekend that included "national championships," a newly-announced distinction by the American Automobile Association (AAA) for select race meets. Car manufacturers were keen to make a great showing.
The image is of the wrecked Pope-Toldeo racer of Frank Fox (see the final paragraph at the link), the only driver to have endured an accident during this first day of racing at the Brickyard. This incident occured on the seventh lap of the 100-mile Prest-O-Lite Trophy race.
Fox is noteworthy because he is the only driver with a prosthetic leg to compete in not only this race meet but also the first Indianapolis 500. Keep in mind the technology of prosthetics in those days was primitive compared to what we see today. Fox apparently was a successful businessman with significant financial resources. 
There's not a ton of information out there about Fox, but check out these links to other articles on First Super Speedway that make a reference to this interesting man:

The cutline to the photo reads:
"When Fox held his Pope-Toledo car to the track after a front wheel had been torn off at a turn into the back stretch yesterday he escaped uninjured from the only accident of the day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway."
