LOS ANGELES, Cal., Nov. 30.—The final championship automobile race of the 1922 season of the American Automobile Association, to be held here today, was postponed at the start on account of rain. The 250-mile race will be run next Sunday, Speedway officials announced.
Eighteen drivers, after making several trial trips of the oval, reported the track too slippery to race. The attendance was estimated at 75,000. The postponement probably will eliminate Ralph De Palma from the race next Sunday. He recently was arrested for speeding and may be serving his ten-day jail sentence when the race is started.
