He too looked 1 strong in practice, but explained he was having a few problems. "THE HEAT wasn't helping things either," he said as the near 90 degree temperature made the small confines of the cockpit even more uncomfortable, not to mention what it was doing to the track itself. He was still able to turn a 28.67, just 3/10 of a second off the track record held by Andretti and Pollard. The turbo-charged Ford's of 1969 sound unlike their predecessors.

POLLARD, BEST known for piloting one of Granatelli's turbines last year, is back in the STP fold, but this time in a Gerhardt-Offy. However the bright red car utilizes the same wedge shape body that Granatelli's unveiled at Indy last year. Pollard didn't get in much practice yesterday as his car was late in arriving from California and then developed a fuel leak in early practice laps. "But we found out where it was and will be ready tomorrow," said the Oregon driver. ONLY ONE accident marred the practice action yesterday as rookie driver Bill Simpson lost it coming out of turn four and put his Simpson Safety Offy into the wall. He jumped from the car however, suffering no injuries. With the advent of the new aerodynamic wedge, PIR managing director J.C. Agajanian expects a full second- to be knocked off the track record. Many of the new wedge designed machines, like Ruby's and Pollard's, have less than four inches clearance from the ground. APT. HUNTING? DIAL 279-5030 RECORDED MESSAGE Play the Favorite ...
