Speeds far in excess of any pre-
viously shown by the new two-man
viously shown by the new two-man
predicted for the national cham-
pionships on the famous Altoona
speedway Labor day.
With the race for the title devel-
oped into one of the hottest last
minute battles in the annals of the
speed sport, the jockeys leading the
standing will be compelled to throttle
their motors many notches faster to
the place they are seeking.
A higher place in the rating their
goal, many of the lads who ran the
ourth of July classic have been
working constantly on their cars
ever since in the hope of arriving
at a better combination. Some of
them have been successful and others
continue dissecting their tiny mo-
tors for the least possible flaw which,
if corrected, might prove to be the
“monkey gland” for their September
7 ride.
Freddy Frame, the California ace
who finished only 41 seconds behind
Lou Schneider Memorial day when
the one time motorcycle cop won
the grand prize “500” at Indian-
apolis, is one of the consumers of
midnight oil who has been success-
ful in his attempt to add more speed
to his mount. In competition down
east Frame has arrived at a combi-
nation which has added 10 miles an
hour more speed to his flashy Due-
With this newly acquired swift-
ness helping his chances, Frame is
heralded as the next champion of the
speed realm. He is only 100 points
behind Lou Schneider in the title
standing and the 180 points await-
ing the winner of the two 25 mile
sprints and the 100 mile feature
classic in Altoona, September 7,
would put the Californian on top.
He still would take the lead with
only the 120 points allotted to the rT
winner of the century run.
But to do this Frame will have to
step on it, for equally ambitious for
points are Jimmy Gleason, Ralph
Hepburn, Chet Miller, Zeke Meyer,
Lou Moore, Bill Cummings and a
host of others. And to hold Frame
in check these boys must step onit
too. So with everyone stepping on
it, there is a certainty that the aver-
age for the century will be far bet-
ter than the 111.5 mile an hour galt
of Billy Arnold here June, last year,
the fastest average ever turned in
for the new type two-man cars.
