James J Jeffries on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway -- May 24, 2009

Former heavyweight champion James J Jeffries, at the time he was preparing for his comeback fight against champion Jack Johnson. Jeffries was the original Great White Hope. He sits in "His automobile, a Stoddard-Dayton, on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway."

We watched the Indy 500 today. There were a lot of yellow flags and there was one fire in the pits. There was some mention of the 100th birthday of the Speedway.

From the 05-December-1909 Salt Lake City Herald-Republican.
