Thousands Watch
Big Auto Race
(United Press.) Thirty-three auto
stars domestic and foreign were
to encircle the Indianapolis speedway
two hundred times today in the five
hundred mile Liberty Sweepstakes.
Fifty thousand dollars in prize money
is the goal, the winner to receive
fans from every state in the union,
here to witness the spectacle, crowd
ed hotels in Indianapolis and sur
rounding town and even the housing
streets and at the speedway and other
hundreds awakened today in pullman
cars parked in the grounds.
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.
