Hi Bob

Mr. DePaolo had a relief driver for 21 laps. The year is incorrect also. Well Bob you hit a home run the speed is incorrect as well

I'm looking for the driver who drove the whole race without a relief driver at a speed over 100mph, along with the year.
Rich

Brian the car doesn't look that good, and the answer doesn't either.

The Riley 9 was a motor car produced by the Riley Motor Company (brother to Riley Cycle Company) 1907 to 1911. As best as my research goes it was powered by a V twin. Lets see if this flys?

You both might be right on the car but that isn't what I'm looking for, what I'm looking for, was made in 1926, that's a clue.

This might be hard, Brian if you or Blue are having a hard time.

#1 you know I would not give you the answer in my question. With that said without giving the answer, which by the way is longer than a couple words.

It is not a car, or the body of one.
