"Gold and Glory" Black

$ 32.00

The "Gold and Glory" tee is inspired by the auto race called the Gold and Glory Sweepstakes.

This race became to black race car drivers what the Indy 500 was to white drivers. There were 12,000 paid attendees, making it the largest attended black sporting event up to that time. The race was run annually from 1924 to 1936. It was noted that in the first years of the race, such star drivers as Wilber Shaw, Louie Meyer, and Ralph DePalma were in attendance at the race. Indianapolis-born Charles “Charley” Wiggins won the race four times including three time in a row to become the “Negro Speed King”  to the black race car drivers and his racing exploits became legend.

Front and back print, Water Based Ink, on a true to fit white T-shirt. 100% Ring Spun Cotton.
