Any information on Albert Standen? Last year I bought an original glass plate negative from Jim H. @kccomet at Memory Lane. It is getting printed as a large positive photograph this week. I can only find this one snip-it on him from a 1912 Motorcycle Illustrated magazine.
I also have not been able to find out anything on the Falstaff Trophy. I am assuming this was sponsored/given by Falstaff beer who was also based in Saint Louis.

that plate pic was purchased at a local farm auction, near kc many years ago. there's a lot going on in that full image. it's an Uber cool image of early motor track racing. when mentioned with brownie carlslake, he must have been pretty good

Albert W. Standen (1893-1974) first appears in 1910 newspapers racing motorcycles in Ohio at age of 17. His last race reference was in 1915. Originally from Oberlin OH, it looks like he moved to St Louis MO around 1913 and raced on his home track, the St Louis Motordrome. Standen stayed in St Louis until around 1969 when he moved to Clearwater FL. Passed away 1974 at age 81.

There are 100's of newspaper references during years 1910-1915. Here are a couple:
