1920 AAA National Championship Trail

**The 1920 season at one time was a mess.  Originally it consisted of 5 races, with Gaston Chevrolet as champion.
Revisions were apparently made well afterwards to include 11 races, with Tommy Milton as champion.
Further research has shown the 5 race season to be the true legitimate season, and the results are shown here as such**
