Rahal triumphs CART race a lo Continued from Page 17 a contest with New Orleans Sept. 30,1973. "When someone told me before the game I'd have a 100 yards today, I didn't believe them," said McMillan, playing for the first time in three weeks because of an ankle sprain. "I wondered if I could come back. Now I know. The line made it easy for me to get my yards. The offense is complicated as hell and it makes you work your brain, but you have to sacrifice some things." Bentley said "it was only a matter of time," for the running game to be so productive. "I evaluated the team when I arrived here and in my mind I thought we had what it takes to run the ball. Coach Dowhower has never put pressure on us to win, he's just helped us improve." The defense was magnificent as it harassed and handcuffed Buffalo, setting up two touchdowns with interceptions and producing one of its own on a zany 30-yard fumble return. Two all-time team records were tied in the lopsided affair and the 49 points matched the most scored this season in the NFL when Seattle shelled San Diego, 49-35. The standards equalled were the most touchdowns rushing (5) and the most first downs rushing (18). The Colts set the TD rushing standard Oct. 10, 1971 in a 43-0 whipping of Buffalo and the first down mark in that 1958 game at Detroit. McMillan scored two of the rushing touchdowns Sunday, going 6 yards with 8:01 remaining in again; gjam ASSOCIATED PRESS Bobby Rahal played a waiting game that paid off Sunday with a victory in the Stroh's 300 kilometer Indy-car race at Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, Calif. Rahal passed both Al Unscr Jr. and Geoff Brabham on one move with 12 laps to go. then held off, a wave of competitors to win his second straight race and third in his last four starts. "Once we got by Geoff and "Little Al," I wasn't going to give up the lead no matter what," Rahal said. "I drove as hard as I could. , "With" a few laps to go, I looked in the mirror and I didn't see anybody. I couldn't figure out where Geoff and the others had gone, so I figured I just couldn't see 'em and they were there. "I drove a little crazy there for the last couple of laps. I just wanted to make sure."- Unser Jr., whose tires wore down near the end, and Brabham, whose engine blew on the 94th of 98 laps, both faded out of the picture after Rahal's move at the end of lap 86. "Geoff tried to outbrake me twice." said Unser. "But he overshot the corner both times." ' Asked if he was mad at Brabham for costing him a possible victory, Unser replied. "No, I was more mad at myself because I went high the second time and let (Mario) Andretti get by me, too." Rahal ran the last five laps with the fuel gauge light on in his Purely plays Slims tonight Ginny Purdy, who made the first Virginia Slims of Indianapolis a memorable event, plays the featured match tonight in Edition 4 of this $75,000 women's pro tennis tourney. The North Central High School graduate, now a freshman at Southern California, meets veteran Tina Mochizuki of Los Angeles at the Indianapolis Racquet Club after a 7 p.m. doubles encounter featuring the local duo of Dianne Brown and Nancee Wei-gel. As a wild card entry in this inaugural tourney in 1983, Purdy went to the finals before bowing to Britain's Anne Hobbs. Jane Holdren, the only other local entry (as a wild card), a freshman at Trinity, will play Tuesday. The last two Hoosicr hopefuls for the main draw bowed out Sunday. Lanae Rcnschler of New-burgh, state girls' champion the last three years, lost to Kirsten Dreyer of Weston, Conn., 6-1, 6 2, while North Central sophomore Joanna Plautz was a 6 2, 6-1 loser to Ann Hulbert of Houston. .

Reserve fullback George Wonsley also powered his way into the end zone twice on runs of 7 and 3 yards in the second quarter on his lone first-half carries. Quarterback Mike Pagel opened the touchdown barrage with a 2-yard stroll into the end zone at the 3:34 mark of the opening period to tie the score at 7-7. Wide receiver Ray Butler was the recipient of the only TD scoring pass for the Colts, snaring an 18-yard throw deep in the right corner of the end zone six seconds from the conclusion of the first half for a 28-10 bulge. The final Indianapolis touchdown was one of those once-in-a lifetime plays. Free Safety Anthony Young lugged the ball the last 28 yards. Defensive back Tate Randle carried it another Jwo and Ferragamo the first five. The scenario began with Ferragamo scrambling to avoid a heavy pass rush. He gained five yards to the Buffalo 30 where defensive end Donnell Thompson jarred the ball loose with a body slam. Randle picked up the ball, was grabbed twice by the Bills. Just before he went down, Randle flipped the ball backward to Young. Young caressed the gentle lateral and never broke stride enroute to the end zone. "I thought to myself if I don't score on this play I'll never score," Young said, the smile on his face reflecting his mood. "Scoring a touchdown is a lot better than making an interception. I saw Tate looking at me as I moved forward to find someone to block." Randle said he was "looking for the first blue jersey," he could find. "I saw Anthony had a running start, so I flipped him the ball before I went down," said the defensive back. "Tossing the ball to Anthony was a chance I had to take. I saw the opportunity was there to score." The Colts also turned interceptions by linebackers Barry Krauss and Duanc Bickett into touchdowns. Krauss provided the impetus for the TD which put Indianapolis ahead to stay at 14-7 Wonsley's 7 yard power slant seven seconds into the second period. His interception came at the Buffalo 43 on a diving grab of a deflected pass. Bickett's theft was the most sensational of the season. It was part luck and part skill and gave the Colts the ball at the Bills' 3 yard line. On the next play Wonsley again reached the end zone. Ferragamo was attempting a screen pass on the play. "I was in sort of a delayed blitz." said Bickett, who came in from the right side. "Ferragamo tried to zing the ball past me, it ricocheted off my left arm and settled into my chest.

Rice edged 1985 champion Ricky Hood in the 50 lap dirt car feature after edging Hood again in the 25 lap sprint main. Rich Vo-gler was victorious in the midget portion of the program, while C.J. Rayborn took first in the late model stock division. I held on and as I tumbled to the ground I shouted 'I got it, I got ; if." , Another defensive hero was cornerback Eugene Daniel who broke up four passes and had eight solo tackles. "Everybody made up their mind to do their job," he said. "The linebacker on my side (Bickett) covered the underneath territory and forced Ferragamo to float the ball over his head." The Colts used six defensive ; backs for the first time this sea ) son in passing situations because they finally had six healthy backs. In addition to shutting down" Buffalo's passing game, the Colts held the Bills to 68 rushing yards. Greg Bell was the only running back employed by the losers and he had 62 of the yards in 17 carries. Ferragamo and reserve -; QB Bruce Mathison had the other ; six.
