That must be the original Devil and Miss Jones
Not the one that I saw
The one you saw was "The Devil in Miss Jones" or so I'm told..
You were told correctly
If memory serves Case did not use their own engines. For a matter of fact The Jay Eye had a Fiat engine as did their other 2 racers. An interesting fact is that the man behind the race program was the Case President's son in law was Joe jaggesburger. After the race program was discontinued, joe went on to design and manufacture the famous Rajo heads and racing equipment for model t Fords. The reason these heads were so popular and successful was they were cast and machined in the CASE factory. While there were a number of other aftermarket overhead cylinder heads for Ford the Rajo was the best of the bunch, non of the others could match the quality.
(Case Racing Team, Indianapolis 1911. Number 1 was Louis Strangs car on pole; Number 9 was "Wild Bill" Jones.)
Case , like other car manufactures of the period , maintained a racing team. At the time it was customary to name each individual car. A few of these cars were "Case Bullet, White Streak, Comet, and Jay-Eye-See." Three Case Racers qualified for the first Indianapolis 500 race in 1911, occupying the pole position and two spots in the second row.
Case Touring cars continued to be made in modest numbers for several years, with a price around $2,500. Case continued to build automobiles until the mid 1920s.[/QUOTE]
