With average speeds of more than 75 miles per hour, the cars speeding by on the main straightaway are just blurs in this image. The camera, between the pits and the infield spectators, gets a clear view of the new five-story Japanese pagoda and the infield activity.
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.
