8 Sunday, May 30, '65 Delta Pcmocrnt-Timcs Speed Marks Set As 33 A. J. Foyt Sets New Mark Of 161.233 MPH I NDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (UPI) -- An abundance of records was the best forecast Sunday for the 49th 500 mile race Monday. The 33-cnr starting field qualified at the fastest average speed in history, 15G.05S miles per hour, with pole winner A. J. Foyt, twice the champion in this annual test, setting a four- lap record of 161.233 miles per hour as well as a single lap affected because some drivers mark of 161.95S. But *?» break with precedent could come in several other categories as .well as speed alone. Twenty-seven of the cars have their power plants behind the driver, ami no rear engine car ever, has won this spectacle. ; No car powered other than an won the event by motor 0/fenhauser has since 19-IG; this year's field- includes 17 cars with Ford engines, and two of the super-powered Novi's were in the event. The race, to start at 11 a.m. (CDT), was expected to draw a record crowd of more than 300,000 with another 'record purse also likely in excess of the $506,575 paid last ' year. Foyt : s winning share was $153,650. New Rules New rules designed to promote safety, developed after a tragic crash on the second lap last year resulted in tile death of veteran Eddie Saclis and rookie Dave MacDonald, may work against the winner setting a new 500 mile record, despite the tremendous jump in qualifying speeds, an average of 3'/ 2 miles per hour. First, every car must make a minimum of two pit slops to lake on fuel. Second, no pres- fucling systems will be permitted. Thus Ihe race against time will be drastically the past have gone the distance wilh only one stop, and (he pit slops could be longer than the usual 20 of 25 seconds because it will take longer to refill the tanks by gravity feed. Railbirds anticipated that Foyl, or any other driver who can beat him into the lead from the flying slart, may try to sel an early pace of 157 or 155 miles per hour, settling eventually to around 153 as [lie' race progresses. Even this speed could demand the utmost production from the slower cars since the slowest qualifier, Bill Chcesbourg, hit 153.774 in qualifying.
