So with the new machine I really went out to win and my first attempt was at 65 m.p.h. in a race on old Ascot. My competition that day included men from the ranks of the popular racer s such as: Eddie Hasha, Lee Humiston, Al Ward, Johnnie Albright, Ray Seymour, Al Earhart, Chas. Balke, Wm. Samuelson, Paul Serkum, Walter Collins, Dave Kinney, Billy Hoag, Gal Blaeylock, Jack Fletcher, Arthur Mitchel, Fred Whittier, Irwin Knappe, Jake De Rosier, J. Howard Schaeffer, Spot Bruggerman, Percy Powers, and Roy Artley. My 65 mile average brought me a victory.
