Oldfield on Muddy Track

According to Tony De Seta, this shot is from a track in Texas in 1905. The man beside Barney Oldfield (who is at the wheel) is allegedly Howard Hughes' father. I can only assume the larger man behind them was his chauffeur. Any additional info from anyone is most welcome - like the make of automobile.
