American-Made Cars Not Speedy Enough for 500-Mile Race.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., May 24.—Three cars entered in the 500-mile automobile race, to be held here Saturday, withdrew today, and it was said other withdrawals are expected, because of inability to make the required speed of eighty miles an hour. Today was the last day for the speed trials.

The three cars that withdrew were of American make, and their drivers were to have been Pullen, Ruckstell, and Nikrent. It was explained that the three drivers have been having engine trouble and could not get their mounts in shape.

Darius Resta made a lap today at the rate of 98.5 miles an hour. Cox and Lecain also made better than the required average.
