Buruian Is probably more in the
eye than any oilier racing
driver, because of his succession 10
the throne of sp?ed kins and his holding of the world's straightaway records made at Dayrona. Florida. He
has been a contender in mosl of the
s;reat motor events in the past four
or five years and litis always figured
more or less prominently.
The entry of the Cutting car. With

his time to preparing the car and testing it out over the motor speedway
course. He probably wilT do very little exhibition driving or mile tracli

him in Hie bailding of his special rac

a 1012 special model, weighing L::uti

it is to be a two time winner in one
race meeting had it not been that an
unfortunate accident put him out of
the Grand Prise race when he was

The smiling pilot has made enough
money so that he has been able to go
in after the $50,000 purse at the Speedway in a car owned by himself and his
choice of a Knox seems to be partially
the result of the performance of thai

that he can put the famous

This Is by far the largest field that
ever has been entered for any event

list of tentative entries brings the
number of starters up to thirty, which
is the iimit placed by the Speedway
management. The foreign cars entered are all owned privately while
main of the American cars are to he
entered by individuals rather than by
the manufacturers. This seems to Indicate that motor car racing is becoming more aud more of a sporting proposition pure and simple and the
phase is being overshadowed.
Reservations of seats for the race
and of rooms in the Indianapolis
hotels have been made in vast numbers, and indications at present are
that a greater crowd than the 90,000
persons which witnessed the last race
will be on hand this year. The Speedway has established a room bureau
