He said the posted prize of $5,500 from the American Dairy Association of Indiana would go instead to the Championship Auto Racing Auxiliary, a women's group that supports various charities. The American Dairy Association of Indiana each year pays the race winner $5,000 and the chief mechanic $500, but those awards are contingent on the traditional sip of milk from Victory Lane. Fittipaldi drank some milk, but not until he first downed the orange juice. Briefly Sports FOOTBALL MiamPs Paige says ntlnd "mainr hiirnnnt Citing "maior burnout" shocked, skeptical Miami Dolphins in his wake, starting fullback Tony Paige retired from football Tuesday. "I've hit the wall," Paige, 30, said from his home in Silver Spring, Md. "I've been playing football since I was 12 years old, and I'm tired of it. I've never lived lavishly, I'm totally debt-free, and I've gotten everything I want out of football." Paige also noted that he has played one of football's most brutal positions for 18 years fullbacks collide with someone full- speed on nearly every play and Tony Paige said health was an Issue. "I've never had surgery," Paige said. "I've never even had a broken bone. Who knows how much longer I would be able to say that if I continued to play? I'm going to leave the game gracefully rather than get kicked out of it and humiliated at the end like so many guys are." Paige called Miami coach Don Shula Tuesday morning to break the news. And although several coaches tried to talk Paige out of his decision Tuesday after Shula announced it in a team meeting, Paige remained firm. The football door is closed for me," Paige said. "I won't play football again. I had nine good years, and I'm moving on with my life." Paige rarely carried the ball, but he caught 141 passes In three seasons with Miami and was regarded as one of the NFL's best blocking fullbacks. Colts give Purdue's Turner grant The Indianapolis Colts have awarded a coaching fellowship to Purdue University assistant head coach Bobby Turner. The Robert Irsay Black Coaching Fellowship is given annually to an individual who hopes to coach professionally. The grant will allow Turner to Join the Colts' coaching staff for a training camp session. Turner, 44, will participate in on-field Involvement with the players as well as attend staff meetings, personnel evaluations and decision-making sessions, the Colts said. His fellowship extends through the break of training camp Aug. 28. . Notes: Sunshine participants set The Sunshine Football Classic, formerly the Blockbuster Bowl, will match the fifth-place team in the Southeastern Conference against a representative of the Big East each of the next two years. Former Cincinnati Bengals running back Larry Kinnebrew is on trial for charges that he raped a woman in her Cincinnati apartment. Prosecutors Tuesday accused him in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court of raping the woman last November. But the defense told jurors that the woman consented to sex with Kinnebrew and that she pressed rape charges after he refused to lend her money. HOCKEY Notes; Panthers The Florida Panthers scheduled a news conference for today amid speculation they will name former New York Rangers coach Roger Neilson their first head coach. Panthers spokesman Greg Bouris said "with all the speculation recently, I'm sure it won't be a major surprise." The Hartford Whalers acquired veteran defense-man Brad McCrlmmon from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick. The draft pick was earlier obtained by Hartford from Detroit for Steve Konroyd. McCrlmmon, 34, has played 14 seasons with Boston, Calgary, Philadelphia and Detroit. The New Jersey Devils are coach hunting yet again, and Robbie Ftorek is a prime candidate. "I am a Brazilian orange juice producer, and for many years I have been toasting my racing victories with orange juice." said Fittipaldi, who owns a 500,000-acre orange tree plantation. "At the Indianapolis 500 this year, I drank the milk after I had a little orange Juice. 1 deeply regret the misunderstanding and Inconvenience I caused for the American Dairy Association and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway," he said in a statement released by the dairy association. Fittipaldi and Team Penske received a winner's share of $1,155,304 from a record purse of $7.68 million at Monday night's victory dinner.
