Frank Fox Prest-O-Lite Trophy Wreck

This image orginally appeared in the May 27, 1910 Indianapolis Sun. It supported an article covering the Prest-O-Lite Trophy, a race of 100 miles. The race took place on 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. As stated above, this incident occured during the running 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 this race meet as well as 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:
"Driver Fox and his mechanician, Fuller, fortunately escaped injury during the progress of the Prest-O-Lite Trophy race. In their seventh lap, their car ran off the track, but did not turn over."
