HUGE PURSE BAIT
Proposed That Ten Thousand Dol
lars Be Offered, But There
By HARRY WARD.
Close followers of the automobile
speed game are laughing at the efforts
of certain promoters to Dring about a
big race between Bob Burman, the
world's speed king, and Barney Old
field, holder of the title until "Wild Bill"
wrested the laurels from him about ten
days ago on the Daytona beach.
The plan is to brlrg the two drivers
together in a match race In Montreal
some time in July. The bait held out is
a purse of $10,"00, to be split on a 60 and
10 per cent basis.
As a matter of fact, Burman cannot
compete with Oldfield. for the latter is
an outlaw, and any drUer who is regis
tered with the American Automobile
Association Is barred from racing with
him for a period of two ears. This ban
holds good in the United States as well
as In all foreign countries, and the
placing of Oldfield on a Canadian track
would not change his status as an out
law. Burman is not likely to a take a
chance of defying the three A s, because
his suspension would mean the end or
his racing career.
