The greatest racing talent in America and Europe was on hand at the brick oval early today. The race was to start at ten o'clock at the sound of a gun fired by W. S. Gilbert, Detroit, assistant starter. Participants trailing five abreast be hind the pace car and gradually gain ing speed were to leap ahead on the real grind when E. C. Patterson, Chicago, fired a bomb at the end of the first lap. Captain Eddie Ricken backer, erstwhile racer, ace of Amer ican fliers on the western front, sat in the referee's box. Betting favored Dario Resta, in a sunbeam car, winner of the 1910 sweepstakes. Ralph DePalma, in a Packard, was not far behind, how ever, and many of track veterans chose him as winner. The Ballot team of four was an unknown quan tity, inasmuch ps the cars were con structed by - a Frenchman of that name especially for this race. Rene Thomas, winner of the 1914 race, headed the team. None of the favor ites were receiving great odds, be cause the talent was considered rather evenly divived, and many of the entries have loag lists of victo ries to their credit. Confidence of the wagers was placed in the drivers rather than the cars, because the track was compara tively short and flat turns and re quires the utmost skill, combined with a disregard of safety. Here DePalma was again favored, in view of his ability as a driver. Jules Goux, victor in the 1913 race, didn't want any confidence misplaced in his car, so he took it apart and exam ined eveiy piece of metal, every fi bre, with a magnifying glass and then suspended the metal parts on a string and struck them with a sounding iron to make sure that they rang true. The sweepstakes is the sole major event on the international racing cal endar for the year and this fact serv ed as a drawing card. The French Grand Prix, which divided honors with Indianapolis in this game, prior to the war, will not be revived until next year. The race today was ex pected to replace this sport on the solid foundation of reawakened pub lic interest. The races were aban doned during 1917 and 1918 because of the war.
