D'ALENE DROPS OUT OF RACE
RECORD TIME LOOKED FOR
WHEN BIG AFFAIR IS RUN
Wilbur D'Alene, who copped sec
ond place in the big Indianapolis
race, will not take part in Saturday's
Speedway run. According-to. a story
in the Waukegan Sun, this """dark
horse" did not get any coin for his
sensational run in the Indiana city
race and he is disgusted with the
racing game in general.
As the Sun story goes, D'Alene
signed a contract which stated that
he would get but one trophy, no mat
ter what his stanl at the finish of
the Indianapolis race. After the
records showed him in second place,
the Bosch Magneto Co. presented
him with a special prize, a medal and
cap, and he accepted. Later he was
torn Dy tne uuesenoerg people wnose
car he piloted, that he was not en
titled to any other prize. Therefore
the $6,000 bit for second prize money
did not go to D'Alene.
This "famous-in-a-day" driver
claims he was literally robbed of the
coin and he cannot see the racing
game for a future following. He has
accepted a position in the Pierce Mo
tor Co. at Waukegah.
The reporter who landed the story
for the Waukegan Sun says the man
is the deal D'Alene, as newspaper
clippings, medals, etc., backed ur his
claim.
Tuesday's rain served to line up
today's tryouts at Speedway park, in
preparation for the race Saturday,
doubly interesting. There are but
three days left for the cars to quali
fy, and as time shortens the effort to
get in the best time possible grows
greater. '
