Indianapolis Motor Speedway May 28, 1910

By Charles Bretzman


Crowds are on their feet as drivers and mechanics start their engines at the beginning of a race on May 28, 1910. The three day event featured 42 races ranging from five to 200 miles on the new brick track. The owners were delighted that the event ended without a major accident during the three days of high-speed competition. Note the photographers standing on the wall and on the track. See PAN0306 for the same view at the end of a race.The original nitrate negative was copied with funds provided by a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission in 1990. This digital image was created from that copy. The copy prints and negatives are stored in Microfiche Number order
