Video: Henry Ford’s Racer “Sweepstakes Rides Again”


Last July, I had the honor to portray driver Alexander Winton racing Henry Ford in the History Channel's "Men Who Built America". Ed LaBounty's 1913 red White speedster (Sweepstakes) and my Alco Black Beast (Winton) re-enacted the historic 1901 sweepstakes race.

This summer, Ford Racing released a video of NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Carl Edwards taking the ride of a lifetime in Henry Ford's first and only race car, Sweepstakes.

Enjoy,
