100 Mile an Hour Club
Posted 28 December 2010 - 04:47
I am wondering if anyone knows if engraved cigarette lighters were given to the members of the club or whether the lighters were just mass produced for anyone to purchase.
I understand that Doc was killed in a race subsequent to the 500 shortly after being married. Does anyone know of any surviving family members?
Any information would be valuable.

From the flavour of your post, I think you are referring to Indianapolis rather than Brooklands. I believe the latter issued official certificates for laps at 100 mph and above.

As this query is Indianapolis-related, I suggest that you post the same query on Trackforum, which is a knowledgeable Indianapolis-centric forum. If anybody can answer your questions, they can.
I've just remembered that Champion, the spark plug manufacturers, at one time had some sort of award for those who averaged more than 100 mph for the "500". This might be your 100 Mile an Hour Club.
