LA GRANDE EVENING OBSERVER SATURDAY, JUNE 25, 1910.
Thrills followed thrills as speeding automobiles shot around the
course of the Ingleside Race Course, on April 24th, in the second and
final day events of the successful meet promoted by the members of
Islam Temple of the Mystic Shrine.
, , Thehonors of the day were divided between Barney Oldfleld, with
his 200 horsepower Bens machine, and C. O. King, with his Maxwell
30 horsepower stock car. Oldfleld lowered his previous record of one
mile to 51 6-0, which Is a new coast record for the circular track.
With the exception of this performance, Oldfleld had to take second,
place In the list of racing honors, as the world's champion met defeat
in both the five and fifteen mils handicap events, and in both races
King and his Maxwell were the victors. In fact, King proved the '
surprise of the meet, driving all of his races with much judgment and
taking the turns with his car as close to the fence as did Oldfleld. In
the five mile handicap, Oldfleld drove his Knox racer to the utmost,
but the handicap was too strong and be could not get the lead away
from King. Not only In the handicap events did King and his Max
well prove stars of the first order, but In one of the first events of the
day, the fire mile race for cars costing from 1200 to $1600, which was
one of the bestmatches of the meet
The time for the five mile handicap was as follows: Maxwell,
King, 4.40.30; Oakland, Nelson, 4.48.25; Chalmers, West, 4.49.30; Auto
Car , finished fourth, and the Knox car, Barney Oldfleld driving, fifth. ,
In the event number eight, ten miles free-for-all handicap, King
and his Maxwell again were the winners, the Maxwell's time being
