Fast Time on Elgin Auto Course.

The New York Times
August 23, 1910

CHICAGO, Aug 22.—The first official trials of the Elgin Automobile course to-day evidenced a speedy track.  The circuit of a little more than eight and a half miles was made by a number of drivers at a speed slightly better than a mile a minute.  Grant, in an Alco, drove in 8:21.  Harroun, driving a Marmon, Livingstone, in a National, and Mulford, in a Lozier, did the distance in 8:28.  At one time twenty machines were on the track.  Mrs. Mulford, in khaki and the regulation hood, acted as mechanician for her husband.
