Motor: Over a 139.7 mile course, mostly smooth, level and straight, but partly mountainous, a Chevrolet six roadster, piloted by Earl Allen, San Antonio, Texas, won the recent Mexican road race from Nuevo Laredo to Monterey, by averaging 72.73 miles per hour. Second, Chevrolet; third, Stutz; fourth, Studebaker Commandter 8; fifth, Ford; sixth, Ford; seventh, Chevrolet. There were twenty-nine starters in three classes: first, modified stock, under $1000; modified stock over $1000; and strictly stock cars without reference to price class. The Stutz and Studebaker were strictly stock, the others mentioned were modified stock. Among the entrants above $1000 were several cars capable of doing ninety miles per hour or more, but they failed to win against the Chevrolet because of the terrific pace they set with the result that they broke down. A Gardner 8 phaeton averaged 86.79 miles per hour for the first 43 miles, and was leading with an average speed of 81 miles per hour until fifteen miles from the finish when it threw a rod. Much of the trouble was due to the fact that the day was excessively hot. Another race is planned but the date has not been announced.
