Joe Dawson - 1911 Indianapolis 500

Joe Dawson in the Marmon team car to Ray Harroun in the Marmon Wasp at the 1911 Indianapolis 500. The car to Joe's right is the Marmon Wasp. Cars were lined up in the order they were entered and assigned that number. The Marmon Car Company wanted the number 32 for their star driver, Harroun, in their top entry, the Wasp because of their consumer product model, the Marmon "32."
