Dry Lakes Racing

During the summer of 1932 Auburn made several speed runs at Muroc. A stock V-12 Auburn sppedster covered the flying mile at 100 mph, and posted an average speed of 88.95 mph for a 500 mile run to set a new track record. In 1932 Ab Jenkins removed the fenders and windshield from a Pierce-Arrow V-12 roadster, and without factory sanction, drove around the ten mile diameter track at the Bonneville Salt Flats for 24 hours. He averaged at 112.93 mph, setting a new record, but it remained unofficial because of a dispute between driver, manufacturer and the AAA board.[1]
