in the Jericho Sweepstakes, 150 miles, on the Long Island Motor Parkway. Both carsiapped
all other five entries. Averaged 48 miles per hour, fastest time ever made in a road race by

wonderfully consistent, Burns never 'stopped during the entire race. Ainslee stopped once for gasoline.
The "Fotty" struck a dog in the fifth lap, damaging the radiator so that the car was withdrawn.

tho ":J0s" reel o(T lap after lap, without interruption, at an
average speed of -IS miles per hour, was n surprise. Officials,
uutoiuohile experts, and spectator", cheered tho two ears every
timo thoy paed the stand. The "00" certainly established
itself in popular favor.
The car which Ainslco drovo was not only a stock chassis
hut a Mock body. Jt did not even havo a racing body. It was
a tour-about taken out of stock from tho salesroom of our
Urooklyn dealers, limns Auto Company.
Ainslee, driver of tho Chalmers-Detroit "30", which won
second placo in tho Jericho Sweepstakes, had never driven or
even seen the "HO" car until the morning of the race, Deforo
ho Minted, Chief Kngineer Ut had to show him how to shift
the gears. In spito of his imfamiliuiity with tho car, ho did
not havo tho slightest trouble, and never stopped tho car except
once, for gusoline.
birimcr's work in the "Forty" was most creditable. Dp to
the iifth lap, when ho hit tho dog, ho made a splendid showing.
The accident, however, caused his radiator to leak badly, so
that it was necessary to withdraw tho car.
Tho threo Chalmers-Detroit teams, who drove our ears in
tho Parkway races, improved everyono" most favorably, and
won lots of apphuiM) by their business-liko work. ,iT 0110 ex
