Winton Vs. Ford

This 1901 photograph shows Henry Ford (on the left) about to pass Alexander Winton in their first race on a track outside of Detroit, Michigan. Ford won the race, and in 1902 Winton, vowing to avenge this loss, would break the land-speed record when his "Winton Bullet" hit the speed of 70 mph during a test run in Cleveland. Despite these improvements, he still lost a race to Ford later that year.
