Did You Know?

The first automobile race in the US was held along Chicago's lakefront in 1895, with J. Frank Duryea beating the rest of the field while averaging a blistering 7.5 miles per hour. Which, coincidentally, is often the average speed on Lakeshore Drive at 8AM!

A water bottle and tripod serve as stand-ins as Michael emulates Daniel Chester French's statue "the Republic," which stands on the location of the 1893 Chicago World's Fair administration building.
