Summary, etc.:
Did you know that the Indianapolis Motor Speedway was actually built in 1909, not 1911? Host to balloon races, motorcycle races, an aviation meet and over 80 auto races, the Speedway was the center of many historical events before the first Indianapolis 500 was even a thought! Yet nowhere has this history ever been fully documented in one place, until now. -- Taken from back cover.
