(I, Jatik Martltm, Most successful of Racine drivers competing in the Sunday Sunday night modified stock car racing programs at Waukegan is Mill Curcio, who this season season purchased Norm Nelson's Mcrcury,-powercd Croslcy. Three weeks ago, Curcio was a distant 28th in the point standings, but three straight third-place finishes in the feature feature event have boosted his point total to 660, and fourth place. The past two limes out, the Racine pilot set the fastest qualifying time for the evening. At his present pace, Curcio likely will move into third in the point standings, predicts James K. Engel of Midwest Speedways, Inc., race sponsors. Quit Franksvllle Shows Other Racine drivers competing competing in the Waukegan contests include Rod Fuller, Rich Christensen, Christensen, Russ Sorenson, Jeff Scott, Russ Olsen, Norm Davis Ron Larson, Chester Larson and Bob Brinkmann. Midwest Speedways this season season dropped its operation at Franksvllle and has taken over instead at Ccdarburg. "We liked the Franksvllle operation," Engel said. "However, "However, what, we put in to pro mote the track did not pay off Midwest Speedways lost $5,000 on the Franksville operation last year." Engels blamed the deficit to lack of fans' interest in "a small racing track and poor ground facilities." He added: "We brought in a good show with a lot of action but.. . the majority of the American public public likes to be associated with something big. Despite our continuing efforts, Franksvllle remained small." Racing moves into its seventh seventh week at the Waukegan Speedway tonight. Track man-* ager, Michael Kaishian, expects a field of 50 modified stocks to compete. Heading the entries is the current 1959 point leader, Eddie Stillman of Milwaukee, who has set a blistering pace thus far in racking up 1320 points as compared to second place man.
