' ALL EDITIONS 06 THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC THURSDAY, APRIL 16, 1987 1 philips Hops eraGries rfly MARK ARMIJO -JM Arizona Republic S If Larry Phillips captures the Cola7-Uo Western World . : Site-model championship on Saturday night at Manzanita Speed way, perhaps the race should be named after him. It would be difficult to argue the point, considering Phillips' history at the Western. He has won the last two races and is the ijMily three-time winner in the 11 "jfeare the race has been held, also winning in 1982. "V Phillips, 44, has failed to finish ki three other Western starts, ;teaving the impression that there Is nothing in between for him. That might not be far from the ;jruth. Phillips, who lives in 'Springfield, Mo., failed to finish in this share of the 80 races he entered last season. Phillips, how ever, won 47, a .587 percentage. . "The man can flat-out drive." v aid Valley driver Michael Gibson, twho finished second to Phillips in $985. "He can drive any car up to v the front. He can be beat, but it )-yWre going to be the one to beat 'him, you better be as smart as ne "is- He's probably got more knowledge inside him than the rest of us ever learn in a lifetime." The championship will be preceded by two days of qualifying main events, starting tonight at 7:30. Ten drivers will earn berths in the 40-lap stock-car main event tonicht and another 10 will qual ify on Friday. Four more spots will be available from baturdays preliminary races. The Western World Bomber championship will be held in conjunction with the late-model program. Phillips heads a strong contingent of out-of-state drivers who have entered the race, which will award a first-place check of $3,500. Other drivers coming in include Lance Neumann of Lafayette, Colo.; Fred Lundock of Gillette, Wyo.; Bill Girton of Scottsbluff, Neb.; and Roger Saat-hoff of Bruce, S.D. Arizona favorites include Gibson, Carl Trimmer, Jack Ickes, Dan Smith and Jim Clifton. Trimmer was second in last year's race and Ickes was runner-up in 1984. Trimmer, who lives in Tucson, is a three-time state driving champion and won the first two late-model races at Manzy this season. Gibson has been working until the early hours of the morning since Sunday, building two motors for the race. He will drive one of the 1987 Camaros he has entered, and Dean Vance will drive the other car. "To be competitive with (Phillips), you've got to start up front, close to him," Gibson said. "The race I finished second to him, I started in the seventh row and was running second by the 10th lap. I just couldn't get by him after that. "When you beat this guy, though in a race that he finishes you know you've done something. But like I said, you got to be smart." W 1 Iff u.
