The Need For Speed

When I first read aboout this event of 1914, staged at the Arizona State  Fair, I  had to paint it.  Based on a race for the  “Fastest Man on Earth” , it featured the  great Lincoln Beachey flying the  Curtiss “pusher”, Barney Oldfield sporting his 300   horsepower  Christie, and the winner Don Johns on the bike.

Print comes framed with certificate of authenticity.
