Chicago's third annual auto derby
will be held on the Chicago 'Speed
way, Saturday afternoon, June 16.
After a month of inactivity, due to
the entrance of United States into
the war, local promoters yesterday
reached this definite decision, mak
ing only one change in their original
plans by changing the date of the
speed Classic from June 9 to June 16.
The change in date will give the Chi
cago speedway officials an opportu
nity to postpone the derby to June
23, provided they run afoul of incle
ment weather on June 16.
The race will be 250 miles in length
and the purse will total $21,000, the
first ten drivers to finish dividing
$20,000 of this amount and $500 go
ing to the leader at the completion
of 100 and 200 miles.
Entry blanks, which this season
are furnished by the contest board
.of the American Automobile ass'n,
will be sent out within the next week.
1,000 agencies are being established
in Chicago and vicinity. The scale
of prices is as follows: Box seats, $10,
$8 and $7; grandstand chairs, $5, $4
and $3.50; bleachers, $1.50 and $1;
parking spaces, $10 and $5; paddock,
$2; all prices include admission.
Drivers and mechanicians, who jf,
have yolunteered for military service
either as aeropanle pilots or chauf
feurs of "armored cars, probably will
not be called to the colors until the
middle of the summer, as at the pres
ent time the government has not the
equipment that they will need both
in training camps and in the field.
"In deciding to hold our race in
June we have no intentions of inter
fering with the use of the drivers and
mechanicians by the military author
ities," said Pres. David F. Reid, "but
instead aim to give them an oppor
tunity to win some prize money in
their chosen vocation and make ,
enough expense money to tide them
over until the army needs them. With
automobile racing abandoned, they
will be forced to secure temporary
employment at comparatively low
wages while Waiting to serve the na
tion in the air or at the wheels of
armored cars."
In addition to receiving assurances
that at least four American teams of
three cars each Mercer, Hudson,
Stutz and Duesenberg will enter,
Pres. Reid has received scores of in
quiries from individual entrants for
entry blanks and now is preparing to
bring the English Sunbeams and
Italian Fiats to this country.
