Tom Kincaid, Winner Prest-O-Lite Trophy

This image of Tom Kincaid orginally appeared in the May 27, 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.
Tom Kincaid was a promising young driver on Arthur C. Newby's National Motor Vehicle Company race team. Kincaid was the junior teammate to National's star, Johnny Aitken. Even so,  Kincaid won several races at the Speedway during its pre-Indy 500 years. He also won a major event, the 200-mile Atlanta Automobile Association Trophy at Atlanta speedway in 1910. This image was published to recognize his victory in the 100-mile Prest-O-Lite Trophy.
