Stock Racing Opens Sunday When stock racing receives its green "go" flag Sunday afternoon at. Sportsman Park speedway, among the field of veteran drivers will be a rookie who has traveled many miles since his last experience. Bill-Vitez of Cleveland only two years ago was living in Munich, Germany and was a motorcycle competition rider of some note in both road and track .races, of that country. Since coming to Cleveland he has become a frequent visitor to the garage of Val Potisek whose No.'43 stock car.achievements are well -known. The "bug" bit quick and well, and the result has been that Vite? built a duplicate car in the same garage during the past winter and tomorrow will try his hand at stock car racing . . . American style. A 27-year-old Hungarian, Vitez rode cycles in Germany for a year and a half before emigrating to the United States. Officials of - MARC today announced that they will be on hanr] at 10 a. m. at Sportsman Park tomorrow morning to accept applications for licenses from both car owners and drivers in order to avoid confusion at the noontime sign-in hour. , For the fans the gates will open at noon, time trials will begin at p. m. and the first race will move jut at 3 p. m.
