Wyoming Racing #3

This image, reportedly taken on August 23, 1910, comes from the Wyoming State Archive collection. It is of driver Harry Ball and riding mechanic James Allen in a 55 horsepower Apperson Jackrabbit, #4. Ball is seen being certified as the winner of the Frontier Days 200 Mile Race.
Historian James Fuller originally submitted this photo, and a second historian, Robert Rampton, provided the identification. The venue was the four-mile dirt track at Cheyenne, Wyoming. The track operated from 1909 to 1919. Check out additional images on First Super Speedway.
