Bruce, these are wonderful articles of history, really glad you have them and are posting them. I do find it strange that in the last one you posted, Sept. 16, 1969, they incorrectly reported the champ car race as being at Indianapolis Raceway Park, a 5/8 mile oval, which was paved in 1961, and the Hoosier 100 has always been held at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, 1 mile dirt oval? Keep em' coming.
