MONDAY, AUGUST 3, 1987 Michigan Continued From Page 1 "I feel bad for dad because he was just gone again, he Just seems to have problems with 500-milers." The patriarch of the Andretti clan accepted his latest disappointment calmly. "I've always said you have to have the luck and for some reason. Lady Luck didn't smile on me." remarked the 47-year-old veteran, who led 170 of the 180 laps he ran at Indy. , "But my car was beautiful, fantastic, then I started losing oil pressure. I don't know why. I thought I was quite easy on the engine . . . running low revs and taking It easy really." The only real race during the final 50 laps was between Unser and Rahal for second place a duel which Big Al eventually won thanks to great pit work from Roger Penske's "third string." "It was a good run," said the most recent four-time Indy 500 winner, who has a fjrst and a second In his only two starts of '87 for Penske in the Cummins March 86CCosworth. "But I knew Michael was playing a game with us we couldn't catch him today. "We got messed up at the start of the race and missed on the car's settings and spent a lot of time trying to get dialed back in on pit stops." Rahal. who was three laps behind Mario Andretti at one point, stormed back to get on the -THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR- IK lead lap and take third In the Budweiser LolaCpsworth. "My helmet strap broke and there's absolutely no way you can drive even 100 miles around this place without one," declared Rahal, not knowing young Andretti had done that very thing. "Once I got the neck brace fixed it was no problem, but that really hurt us. "When you're three laps down like we were, you have tc go like hell all the time and we didn't have .the liberty of any yellows to make up the difference." . Danny Sullivan came home fourth, -two laps down. In the Miller American March 86C1I-mor-Chevy, while Arie Luyendyk was fifth In the Living WellPro-vlml MarchCosworth three laps behind. Thirteen of the 30 starters were still running at the finish as Pimm's tangle with Danny Ongais on Lap 184 was the only wall contact of the day. "It looked like Ed didn't look in his mirrors, Danny went high to pass him, Ed moved up and tapped him." explained Josele Garza, who was right behind the accident. Pancho Carter, who charged from ninth to second in the Hardee's March, was knocked out by engine failure as was Rick Mears. A.J. Foyt. who started In the middle of the front row, dropped out with a broken motor mount after 67 laps. ' Schwantz wins bike event ASSOCIATED PRESS Lexington. Ohio Kevin Schwantz of Houston won the American Motorcyclist Association Superblke main event at the Mid-Ohio sports car course Sunday. Schwantz defeated Wayne Rainey of Downey. Calif., setting a new track record with an aver age speed of 89.013 mph. His margin of victory over Rainey was 12.665 seconds. Ralney's Honda teammate Bubba Shobert took the early lead, but went off the track on the second lap. That gave the lead to Rainey and Shobert. who dropped back to eighth place and finished in fourth. Pack set to replace holdout Wright ASSOCIATED PRESS Green Bay Packers Coach Forrest Gregg says he may have to name a replacement for Randy Wright next weekend if the holdout quarterback does not report to training camp. Gregg said Sunday he would make the decision after next Saturday's scrimmage. "There comes a time. If a guy's not here, he can't very well start for you, can he? Especially at that position." Gregg said. "We can't have a ghost lining up at that position. We've got to have someone In there who can take the snap, throw the ball, call the plays and call the cadences." A decision would be made among the four quarterbacks in camp: rookies Don Majkowskl of Virginia and Dave Yarema of Michigan State, and veterans Chuck Fuslna and David Wood-ley. AT NEW ORLEANS' camp in Hammond, La., the Saints were taking a close look at their defensive backs in an effort to reverse a trend that saw opponents convert 42 percent of their third downs last season. "For us tp make any major improvements defensively, we have to do a better Job on third downs," said Don Capers, defensive backfleld coach. Capers said the starters cornerbacks Johnnie Poe and Dave Waymer, free safety Frank Wattelet and strong safety Antonio Gibson would need help if , the secondary was to be successful. HOLDOUT CORNERBACK Ron Fellows was signed by the Dallas Cowboys and then traded to the Los Angeles Raiders for wide receiver Rod Barksdale. Fellows, who had no contract and refused to report to the Cowboys' training camp, shopped his talents around the NFL and decided he had rather play for the Raiders among the teams who expresed interest.
