Back


Summary:

Murphy at Indianapolis, 1920-1924.  The focus is on his win in 1922.  Many details on the other races, however, with the "big stories" of each race.  Circus Maximus comes from Griffith Borgeson's characterization of the Indianapolis 500 as the modern day equivalent to the big Roman chariot race.
