INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.-Thnt imaginary "groove" on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, hunted high and low by racing stars for 25 years, lias ucen relegated to t'hc scrap heap. The track's nil "groove" now, This Ls trie finding of A. O. Hastings, former member of the Indiana Stale Highway Commission and the expert under whose direction the oval 'has been rcmcxlded to provide for Increased speed on j Mny 30 and in Ihe future. I Winners of the 500-mile rues. I from Hay Harroun in 1911 to Kelly Petillo In 1935, all attributed llleir vicioij- In some part to their own secret discovery of Ihe "groove' Inlo which the wheels of t^ieii 1 mounts fitted most perfectly in Die pilots' quest to achieve the fastest c? with the greatest safety. Halph Dil'altnn, Tommy Milton, file hie Prank Lockhart, nnd other Immortals spent, lung honr.s riding the bricks to gel Hie feel of the turns and locate rough spots. When llic-y had chnrbxl I'heir course they'd announce that they had found their "groove." Directly after last, year';; race, Hastings btgan his cx'iuuistlVG study (o determine how (o make (lie track faster and .safer. Climbing Wall Impossible While drivers .sped around the course, Hastings checked curcfiilly on their .spring, wheel, nnd lire action. He noted the jars and bumps encountered on the brick strnig'iit- 11 ways, the amount of centrifugal force exerted on the turns as speed wns increased, and the visibility of the clinnlieius. Afler weeks, of calculation, he placed his findings on blueprints and speedway officials followed them lo Hie leltcr. Grade lines were laid oul lo eliminate all irregularity. "Tiic process Involved was very | similar lo (hat used in highway I construction." says Hastings. "Nat, iirally, (he speedway was designed to subject racing cars lo tbe wear nnd tear of the average road, and this objective was retained In remodeling the coursi'." , The HEW surface on the turns is ! rock aspiinU, blended careiully to match Hie brick of the straightaways. The new outside wall, three feet his'n, is constructed of concrete, imi built perpendicular lo the cross-section grade on the turns. Tne old outside concrete wall remains untouched, and it is now virtually impossible, according lo Hastings, for a racing car to "climb the wall." Removal of the inside retaining wall and the new curves have improved visibility. . . ,, '. The grading of a 50-foot safely' zone directly inside l|, c turns has I given (he drivers plenty of "spin- 1 ning room" should i'ney encounter trouble, All Curves Exactly Alike | "Checking wrecks, we discovered that many cars hit the inside wall , then skidded up the track lo the outside ivnll," assarts Haslin^ The new surface is made ol the best non-skid material available according to laboratory tests." Hastings explains f.iat while the Kichai'd D. Chapman, of Greenwich, Conn., above, is America's chief hope m Ihc lirilish Ama- lem' (jolf chiimpionshij) at St.' Andrews, starling May 25.

All curves on the remodeled Iracfc are constructed exactly alike, with a super-elevation of about 10 degrees. The two long straightaways arc 3301 fee l in length; tbe two .short straightaways 060. and Hi; four curves 1319. This gives IMe track a circumference of 13.188 fcot or two and u half miles. Discussing speed, Hastings estimates that IGO miles an hour could be attained on [.lie straightaway? with perfect safety, while 110 miles nn hoi-t- on the curves, and I2i) coming out of curves would be well wifiiin the safety margin. "II goes without saym» thai much depends on the driver and the car," concludes Hastings. "We have provided a safe track 'for high speeds— and it's nil 'groove.'
