Every one of them for years has refused to use any other and the reasons behind their choice tell a story of Firestone Leadership. J.HE Indianapolis Race require* the most expert driving in the world. It is won or lost on the turns. Th* man who can make the turns at the highest speed is the man who wins. The track is of rough brick and bumpy. As the race progresses, it becomes soaked with oil and very slippery. UoWN the straightaways the can pound at sometimes 150 miles an hour, but as the turn comes the driver must judge how much speed he can preserve and how much skid he can take and still stay in the land of the living. This judgment must stay with him through 500 miles—with changing track conditions, with nerves gone, withjbands and body numb and with eyes blinded. J.HESE men flirt with death, but there is one chance they will not take. They will not take a chance with tires. THESE drivers buy Firestone Tire*. Their tires are not given to them by Firestone, much lesa are they paid to use them. And herein is the story. JVxANY yean ago, Firestone did pay driven to race. The most famous of these driven was Barney Oldfield and he painted on his cart "Firestone Tires Are My Only Life Insurance." iiiiiiiiiiiiiiHfflimiiiiiminniiiiiimimiiiiiHiHii iniiiiiiul THE course of time Firestone withdrew from racing and the making of racing tires. Then the trouble began. The leading driven of the country said that it was Mr. Firestone's business whether or not he paid them to use his tires, but it was their business to judge the risks they would take. They would race on Firestone Tires, no matter what they cost, or they would not race at all. And so Firestone had again to make racing tire*. IHE difference between a Firestone racing tire and the Firestone Tire you can buy from your dealer lies only in the tread. The heat generated in a tire during a race is terrific. It is heat that causes most tire* to fail. The ordinary road tread will burn up on a track, and so for it Firestone substitutes a harder, lighter tread which would be exceedingly uncomfortable on the road but which perfectly answers the track requirements. 1 HAT, however, is only a detail. The reason why Firestone Tires stand up in any race is to be found in their construction — the same construction that you get in any Firestone Tire. IN ALL tires other thrin Firestone, the cotton cords which go to make up the carcass of the tire are merely imbedded in rubber. In the complex twisting and pulling of these cords in a tire in action, the fiben in the cords rub against one another. The friction generate* heat and when the heat reaches a certain point the tire collapses. • IN THE Firestone Tire, each of the millions of fine cotton fibers going to make up a cord is thoroughly insulated with rubber in the famous, patented Gum-Dippingprocess which is exclusive with Firestone. This reduces the /riction in the cords and therefore reduces the heat and enables the Firestone Tire to perform normally under conditions where any other tire would collapse. racing car can be better than its tires. Neither can any other car. The racing drivers trust life and victory to Firestone Leadership. That same leadership is available to you at all Firestone Dealers.
