Ten Cars Enter for Speedway Race.

The New York Times
March 27, 1915

Special to The New York Times.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., March 26.—In spite of the fact that the managers of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway assert that more than thirty cars will be nominated for the fifth annual 500-mile international sweepstakes race to take place May 29, up to tonight only ten cars had been entered. It is known that many special cars are being built for the race and that several of the plants are holding back on their entries. The foreign representation in the race, despite the war, promises to be as good as ever. At least three French, four English and three Italian cars are expected to start. The entries to date: No. 1, Maxwell, driver, Billy Carlson; No. 2, Maxwell, driver, unknown; No. 3, Maxwell, driver, unknown; No. 4, Mercedes, driver, Ralph De Palma; No. 5, Sunbeam, driver, L. Coatalen; No. 6, Sunbeam, driver, J. Chassagn; No. 7, Brown, driver, W. W. Brown; No. 8, Duesenberg, driver, Tom Alley; No. 9, Duesenberg, driver, E. O'Donnell; No. 10, Cornelian, driver, L. Chevrolet.
