Description:
Jack Johnson in 1910 looking through the steering wheel of his Thomas Flyer automobile, with another man seated next to him. This race car was a 90 horse power Thomas Flyer.

Jack Johnson was the Heavyweight Boxing Champion in 1910 and he wanted to race Barney Oldfield, who was the most famous race car driver of the era. The race did occur but I can't find who won - do you know?
