The 1916 Dodge city Classic

What youngster referred to as "The Milwaukee man with the thousand dollar smile" was the winner of the 1916 Dodge City 300 mile race aboard a Harley 8-valve motorcycle?
Harley fielded eight motorcycles for the event, but only 3 were 8-valves. Who were the members of the factory team that rode 8-valves for that race?

Of Course you are right, Chris
Gonna take a bit of work to find something to make you dig for the answer. Here's a link to Herb Wagner's story on the race: http://www.atthecreation.com/motorcycle ... assic.html
