    Titles read: "117 MPH - CALIFORNIAN WINS INDIANAPOLIS RACE".

    Indianapolis, Indiana, United States of America.

    At the Indianapolis Motor Speedway contest we see a parade opening the event; huge crowds of people in position to watch the race (many sitting on the roofs of their cars). L/S of racing cars starting off in the competition; several shots of cars zooming around the track and pulling in for pit stops. Lloyd (Royd?) Roberts of California wins the race. He drives to the winner's enclosure and sits in his car looking exhausted and covered with grease.

    Correct name of the winning driver is Floyd Roberts. He was killed in the same race the following year.
