There are no surviving official racing records documenting the drivers and cars registered in the Gold and Glory Sweepstakes during its run from 1924 through 1936. The best records available are found in microfilm copies of three leading African-American newspapers: the Indianapolis Freeman, the Chicago Defender, and the Indianapolis Recorder. Information from these three publications was syndicated and distributed to other leading black newspapers throughout the country. The following list of drivers, cars and racing details is taken primarily from these sources. In some cases, little is known of the results of the race, other than the name of the winning driver and the model of his car.
