Salem may see a lot of genuine auto racing this summer,

' Last fall, there was some pretty fast going for a flat
dirt track.- Two of the most interesting entries, and the two
that won most of the attention And the money, were locally
built cars, which added greatly to their popularity. Number
18,-the long, black car built by Larry Hofer and Lee Eyerly,
cleaned up a number of the northwestern dirt tracks, mak- j
ing some wonderfully fast time; at Centralia, on a half-mile i
dirt track, it made 10 miles in 11:32. That was much slow
er than the time made here in Salem, but as it was on a half
mite instead of a mile circuit, it was really phenomenal going.
This tar-ia still in storage, and
will bo raced thin year, practi
cally without change. It was
built by Lee Eye.Iy from a Ford
chassis, but It wouldn't have been
recognized by Henry himself in
most of its Important features.
It has balanced rectprocat'on and
rotating parts. Wherever there
Is a ram or moving part, it Is bal-
anced to secure frlctionless mo

were also lightened by boring or
