Indianapolis Motor Speedway Track

Description: In order to have the "world's finest and safest race course," the Speedway's track was paved with bricks, an expensive and time-consuming process. Cars speed through the first turn on the newly paved track in this May 1910 photo, which also depicts the nine-inch-thick concrete retaining walls and bleachers filled with spectators.
