THE CONCORD TIMES
KEECH BREAKS OLD
STATE RECORD FOR
TIME IN HALF MILE
Veteran Philadelphia Driver
Pilots Special-Built Miller
Around the Track in 29.4
By RADIO KINO.
' His mount a special straight-eight
: Miller, Ray Keech, of Philadelphia,
daring veteran of the terra firma
i speedways, established a new state
record for the half-mile track when
in a great burst of speed his motor
circled the oval in 29.4 seconds at the
Cabarrus District Fair Saturday after
noon. The old state record for the
half-mile spurt is 30 seconds flat.
The youthful and death-defying
Keech also piloted his Miller, a bright
, green racer wearing the number 7, to
first place in the initial three-mile
event, zipping and skidding around the
speedway for six laps in 3:30.2. In
i the second elimination heat Keech
rolled down the home stretch for an
other first place. His time for the
six laps was 3:18.4. In the free-for
all sweepstakes Keech drove home
> second, following close to Bob Robin
son’s Dusenburg which captured first
place and a purse of S2OO.
A great crowd of people, probably
more than 15,000, gathered to see the
first automobile races in the history
’ of the Cabarrus fair. The grandstands
and bleachers were burdened with a
mass of humanity while the infield
was partially filled with several hun
dred. Along the outside curves of the
track a great line of people pressed.
The races were delayed in starting for
nearly 45 minutes while the people
on the south curves were pleaded to
stand back for the safety of their
lives. Ralph A. Hankinson, the
starter, warned the drivers to exercise
the greatest precaution on the track
because of the lack of proper safety
The races were sanctioned by the
American Automobile Association. J.
A. Daly, of Charlotte, was the official
A. A. A. representative in charge.
W. R. Jessee, mayor of Salerno, Fla.,
1 acted as one of the referees. C. A.
Reppert, of Kenton, Ohio, veteran
starter of horse races, and W. E.
Foster, of Roceverte, W. Va., were the
The racers roaring around the oval
iin breath-taking style, frequently one
skidding and leaving behind great
( clouds of reddish dust, held the spec
tators in a constant state of excite
ment and thrills. In the last race
for consolation the spectators groaned
their excitement when Doug Wallace’s
Hispo careened from the road at the
' north end of the track, struck the
1 fence and then did a mean, dizzy whirl
1 back into the track. Finally Wallace
gained control of his car and sped
away down the straight-away. The
Hispo’s capers provided the big thrill
of the racing extravaganza.
Speeding around the track at CO to
SO miles per hour, the six motors in
the free-for-all sweepstakes provided
the most daring race. The half dozen
drivers kept their machines en masse
through the fifth lap, then the race
was on with Keech, Robinson and Wa'.-
lace alternately leading away. When
the ninth lap was run Robinson forged
his Dusenburg into the front and held
his own only by a few inches. As the
racers move down the home stretch
Keech gave his Miller the gas, and it
lacked only a few inches tying the
Keech became the friend of the spec
tators dn the first race, and thereafter
he was loudly cheered. Wallace got
a big hand for his performance in the
five-mile sweepstakes, Keech not only
lowered the state record for the half
mile with his green racer but also
roared around the track for the be»i
record on the three-mile event. His
time was 3:18.2.
The crowd grew somewhat restless
before the races began, but the monot
ony was forgotten when the drivers
rolled their mounts to the starting
point and cranked the motors for the
first event. Arising to their feet the
spectators yelled lustily when Mr.
Ilankinson waved the red flag “to
start.” Keech’s Miller was followed
closely by the crowd in the three-mile
spurt, and it won, wresting first place
from Wallace’s Hispo on the fifth
lap. The order rn which the racers
came in were: First. Keech, of
Philadelphia, driving a Miller; second.
Doug Wallace, of Indianapolis, pilot
ting a Hispo; third. Jim Patterson,
of Kansas City, driving a Frontenac ;
fourth, Roy Monroe, of Middletown.
N. Y., at the wheel of a Dodge Special ;
fifth, Phil Testa, of Newark, N. J.,
driving a Fiatia.
The purse in this event was divided
as follows: Keech. $75; Wallace, SSO.
and Patterson, $25.
In the time trials for a distance of
one lap Ray Keech set a new record
by driving his Miller around the oval
in 29.4 seconds. Wallace and Robin
son missed tying the state record by
two-fifths second, measuring the half
mile in their steeds in 30.4 seconds.
Patterson drove his Frontenac around
the track in 31.4 seconds. Keech won
a purse of $25 in this event.
Jim Patterson’s Frontenac and
Doug Wallace’s Hispo were winners
in the first elimination heat. The
Hispo rolled home first with the
Frontenac second. Testa and Monroe
came in third and fourth respectively
and entered the second elimination
heat in effort to qualify for the sweep
stakes. Both, however, had to drop
out early in the event. Keech came
in first with Itobinson second in the
second elimination race. A purse of
SSO was divided among the cars com
ing in first and second in both heats.
Jim Patterson, Doug Wallace and
Roy Monroe entered their racers in
the consolation race. But Monroe
was unable to finish. After leading
the way for the first two laps he had
to drop out, and it was a struggle
between Patterson and Wallace. The
latter's Hispo, however, did a spin
at the nprth end of the oval, and al
lowed Patterson to drive his Fron
tenac home for first money. The purse
was: Patterson, S6O; Wallace, $25;
and Monroe, sls.
Ray Keech and Bob Robinson were
the big purse winners. Keech won
$215 while Robinson won $2lO by
his racing. Keech won more events
but Robinson rolled home first in the
five-mile sweepstakes to take first
money, S2OO. Keech gave some thrill
ing exhibitions Saturday, and it is no
wonder that he captured the 100-mile
I>onghorn race at Philadelphia last
August. He is daring. He raced his
Miller around the bends at terrific
rates of speed. When he set up a
new state records his speed varied be
tween 65 and SO miles an hour.
The Cabarrus District Fair may
now boast of the fastest race track
OF GRIP CONTESTS
Picked Seven Out of Eleven
Games Played Saturday
But Four Lost Did Look
By W. M. SHERRILL.
The Tribune's prognosticator on
grid games picked seven out of eleven
Saturday and those four lost did seem
so easy prior to game time.
We lost when we cast our lots with
North Carolina, Alabama, V. P. 1.,
and V. M. 1., and won with Duke,
Davidson, Georgia, Notre Dame,
Princeton, Yale and Tennessee.
The Tar Heels again Saturday were
not impressive. The Gamecocks of
South Carolina are getting better as
the season advances but they haven’t
a championship team by any means,
and their victory over the Tar Heels
doesn’t do the North Carolina team
Georgia Tech, with a better team
than last year, and Alabama, with a
weaker team, entertained about 45,000
at Atlanta Saturday. Tech won 13
to 0 and surprised us.
We could hardly believe the radio
man when he told us that Virginia
had defeated V. M. 1., and we were
almost as dumbfounded when V. P. I.
lost to Maryland. We thought the
team that could hold Georgia Tech
close could beat Virginia and the
eleven that could defeat the powerful
Colgate would defeat Maryland, loser
to Carolina. We just accept them as
upsets and go ahead.
Georgia’s overwhelming vietpry over
Furman left us groggy. We picked
the Bulldogs but thought a touchdown
or two would be the margin of victory.
Never did we think that Georgia could
win 32 to 0.
Notre Dame and Yale looked good
in defeating the Navy and Brown, re
spectively, and Princeton kept her
slate clean by defeating Washington
and Lee 18 to 0. Tennessee won an
other conference game by defeating
Dick Grey and a score of other
Wildcats from Davidson slashed
around the Elon team for a 27 to 0
victory. Grey was the bright light
of the game but had fine aid from
Harrison, Flynn and other Presby
terians. Coach Younger used nearly
every man on the squad before the
game was over.
Down at Durham the Blue Devils
from Duke had a field day with Rich
mond. gaining' a 72 to 0 victory. It’s
been many a day since a North Caro
lina team ran up any such score. It
should be remembered that Cornell
defeated the same team 59 to 0, so
the Duke victory could be accepted
maybe, as showing the relative stand
ing of Cornell.
The Davidson-Elon game indicates
that the Wildcats will win from Wake
Forest next Saturday in Greensboro.
The best Wake Forest could do
against Elon was to break even in a
scoreless game. Does the game Satur
day indicate that Davidson is four
touchdowns better than Wake Forest?
