Indianapolis 500

I am a big fan of the Indy 500. Although the event is not nearly as popular as it once was, I still feel that it is the "Greatest Spectacle In Racing." The photo is from the 1940's and depicts a type of race car known as a Midget. If anyone has any information about the photo, it would be greatly appreciated.

*** Congratulations to Indy 500 winner Sam Hornish Jr. ***
