Automobile Race Drivers to Organize for Self-Defense

The New York Times
November 6, 1922


An organization to protect the interests of automobile race drivers is soon to be perfected.  It will probably be known as the Association of Auto Aces and those who are promoting the idea, with Tommy Milton, speed king of the last three years, as leader, are seeking a man to serve automobile racing as Commissioner Landis does baseball.  A majority of the drivers have declared in favor of Barney Oldfield, former champion, for the post.  The automobile drivers will hold the first meeting of the new association during the Motor Show at Madison Square Garden, Jan. 8-11 next.  The "speed demons" believe that unnecessary differences of opinion among drivers and track owners could be eliminated if there were some one to devote his entire time to handling all grievances and whose word would be final in all matters relating to automobile racing.
