Elgin, Ill., Aug. 27.-All previous practice records for the Elgin Auto Speedway were smashed during the tuning up for Friday and Saturday's races to-day. when Spencer Wishart was clocked on two successive laps at 6:46 for the eighth and a fraction miles speedway. This gave him an average speed of seventy-eight miles per hour. All but one or two of the pilots entered in the races had their mounts on the track to-day. De Palma and Gil Anderson let their speed creations out to the limit and thundered around the course in seven minutes flat.
