Hilliard in his $3300 Lancia won: all credit is due him. Bur- mau in his $1000 Buiek gave him the fight of his life aud brought his car in with such a lead over tke remaining contestants that there was HO question concerning the standard which the Buick has set in low-priced automobile construction. The great duel between the leaders was n sight which the spectators will never forget. NOTES ON THE RACE The Buiek used was a regular stock chassis except that for the sake of securing less clearance, the frame and machinery were underhung. Our regular motor, transmission and axle parts were used. During the entire race, the hood over the engine was not raised Seventy miles per hour was made on the smooth straightway stretches—The Ihree fastest laps were made by the Buick—The Buiek made each of 17 laps in less than 11 minutes, the length of each lap was 9,8 miles. The fastest lap of the race was made by the Buick in 10 minutes and 8 seconds. Bakersfield Auto Supply Co. CHICAGO.
