Sounds like a "Boy's Adventure Book" from about 1914.

Probably just to back up his near 300 MPH run recently.

How DO you water cool a chain, anyway?

If you have a sealed o-ring chain then spraying water on the the outside for the few minutes that a speed run takes would cool the chain without disturbing the internal lubrication.

Just make sure not to use Florida summer rain water.
