Thus, if Cooper can drive the
swift Studebaker Special with
which he was won all his points
thus far, fast enough to win this
race he will become, for the third
time in his career, the crowned
speed king of the year. No other
living driver has achieved such a
record. ' ' :
Cooper's standing now is 1,24 0.
Jimmy Murphy, at time of his
death at Syracuse, N. Y had won
