Pit crews wait patiently as spectators from behind the safety of the new concrete guardrail crowd the fence along the main straightaway. Another improvement, the brick track surface, contains three million bricks that were all laid by hand.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
