Inscription.  
Cordy Ruse, a friend of the Wright brothers, built Dayton's first automobile in 1896. Wilbur suggested attaching a sheet under the car to catch the parts that he thought would fall off.

In the early 20th Century, there were as many as 14 automobile manufacturers in Dayton. Only a few of them produced automobiles in any real quantity. The most prominent of the Dayton car manufacturers included the Dayton Motor Car Company and the Speedwell Motor Car Company.

In 1909, a Stoddard-Dayton made by the Dayton Motor Car Company won the first race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with an average speed of 57.3 mph. Another Stoddard-Dayton was the pace car at the first Indianapolis 500 in 1911.

Built in 1981 in Carillon Historical Park.

Signage funded by Warren E. and Thelma L. Snyder
