At the Corn Carnival.
I guess they ran the cars in reverse?

Yes they did race model T in reverse. My dad, born in 1901 told me that he race a model T in his days and they turned the axle over to the other side, so the car now had two speeds in reverse.

Tom Miller,

If you're reading this Tom, then you're remembering a certain backing up race at Greenfield Village some years ago aren't you?
