This photograph shows Henry Ford in this race car, "Sweepstakes," as he begins to pass Alexander Winton, during a 10-mile race at Grosse Pointe, Michigan in 1901. Winton's car was faster, and his experience greater, but he had engine problems and lost to the upstart Ford. With the win and backing of new investors, Ford began his second automobile company.
