he drove the strictly American de
signed Locomo lIe tho fastest lap of
thera e25 minutes 20 d seconds
for the 297 mll s70G miles per
hour That Tracy was not well up
with the leaders at the finish was
due largely to his frequent attacks
of that dread automobile malady
lire trouble Wagner had tlw
trouble even on the last lap but
still won became the foreign cars are
equipped with detachable rims They
carry extra rims with Inflated tires
on them and readjust with the clamp
Ing of a few boils It took Wagner
and his mechanic just three minutes
to refit their wheel The American
cars by the rules of the race com
pelled to use only American material
