Does anyone know what automobile race was held on Sunday May 24th 1914? That would be a week before Indy. A friend of mine ran across a 4th place medal. It is similar to one from Indy so it must have been a decent sized race.
guessing this is yours^
I'm the Unslow1 posting. She is a collectables dealer that has helped me out in the past. I was afraid to link to that site. It's a bit more unfiltered than most here are used to.
This is what I was able to find for races on Sunday, May 24th, 1914. Gordon Morris driving a Ford won the 100 mile race on a half mile track. The article goes on to say Morris driving his Ford beat well known driver Bob Burman the year before.
I don't know anything about it, but I'd sure like to have it!
Thanks! I'll send this link to her.
She just listed it on Ebay. I don't think the ad is up yet. I don't know what the sale # is.
Derek this is the ad. She is just going to try to sell it.
