Each of the 3 Chevrolet Brothers had significant racing careers, and below you’ll find statistical tables outlining the different events they each competed in. This data has been compiled from a variety of different sources, including AAA records, trade journal reports, and period newspaper accounts.
While the tables are comprehensive in scope, they may not be 100% accurate. It was common practice back in the day for publications to use wire reports for their stories, and not actual correspondents at the track. Some races have multiple sources of information, while other races have but a single source. In some instances, upcoming races were heavily advertised in the newspapers, but post-race results were not reported on. Finally, it is important to note that the bulk of this material is over 100 years old, a time when journalistic standards were often questionable, and stories were embellished upon. These tables should not be considered “Gospel”.
A special word of thanks is due to historian James O’Keefe for his invaluable assistance in assembling these statistics. James has been researching the history of automobile racing for decades, and is a noted authority on the early roots of the sport. In 2010 he authored “The Winners Book”, a comprehensive listing of motor racing events. A couple of years later he teamed up with historian Sarah Morgan-Wu, and co-wrote “Frank Lockhart: American Speed King”, a wonderful biography on the 1926 Indianapolis 500 Champion.
Mr. O'Keefe's expertise here is sincerely appreciated!
