description:

This image appears on page 21 in the June, 1951 Alumni magazine. The caption reads, "A cheering section for one of the teams decked out in Monon caps, gets into the spirit of the event. Although the race lasted more than three hours there was no flagging of interest by the spectators who stayed right with the drivers from start to finish. The sports editor of the Detroit Daily News hailed the event as the possible beginning of a new collegiate sport."
