INDIANAPOLIS (AP)-An attorney
for the U.S. Auto Club sought yesterday
to show that Championship Auto
Racing Teams adopted a "take-it-or-
leave-it" attitude on demands for the
Indianapolis 500 before 19 of its entries
were rejected by USAC.
The maneuvering came in cross
examination of car owner Dan Gurney,
whose two cars were among those
disqualified by USAC.

It appeared the court hearing on
CART's suit to force acceptance of the
entries would stretch into the weekend,
keeping the rejected CART teams off
the track at least for today's first day of
practice for the May 27 race.
Gurney testified in U.S. District
Court that all entries by CART mem-
bers were given to Pat Patrick,
president of the breakaway racing
organization, and that Patrick had the
authority to either submit them to
USAC or withhold them.
Patrick turned in the 44 entries,
representing 19 CART teams, two days
before the April 15 deadline. But before
that, he had made public statements
that CART was considei'ing running its
own championship race the same day
as the 500 for a similar $1 million purse.
USAC attorney Henry Ryder asked
Gurney about a so-called "white
paper" Gurney wrote early in 1978 in
which he expressed dissatisfaction with
the operation of championship racing
and stated there was a "great need for
Gurney said the paper, in which he
first proposed the name Championship
Auto Racing Teams as a separate
organization, was "an attempt.to focus
attention on the state of our industry."
Gurney's seven-page document
outlined many of the CART issues, in-
cluding race purses.
"At that moment, we the car owners,
are the ones who have put forth by far
the most effort, by far the most finan-
cial stake with little or no chance for
return.. ." the paper said. Gurney said
the Indianapolis 500 purse should be
doubled to $2 million.
He said the paper as given to a num-
ber of racing reams, and the CART
issues were presented at a USAC
meeting last October in which six of the
original CART directors were present.
Earlier, Gurney told CART attorney
Phillip Maxwell that USAC had not
been responsive to what CART con-
sidered immediate problems.
"As a car owner, I was unable to talk
directly to the USAC Board. I spoke to
USAC President Dick King, Indy 500
chief steward Tom Binford and former
USAC Board Chairmah Reynold Mac-
Donald. King was the one on the scene
most of the time. He was generally
sympathetic, but he kept reiterating he
couldn't do anything about it, that he
would bring it up when the board met. It
