Tight Finishes And 2 Crashes In Stock Races Several spine-tingling finishes and a couple of sensational ..crashes marked the second Saturday night program of stock car rac- ng at the fairgrounds here Saturday night. A large crowd was on hand to watch Dean Flaws < of Webster City edge Les Wildin and Gene Schattschneider to .take :he main event. •, t' : Another big night of races vis on tap this Saturday night. :•.-•. For the second straight week. Schattschneider had the best time trial as he raced around the oval in :30.28 to edge. veteran Bud Fair by l/100th of a second. Flaws and, Wildin were the op winners! Each took- two events. Besides taking the .-fea; .ure, Flaws grabbed the second ieat, while Wildin took the first leat, then bounced his way ;hrough three cars on the last lap to take the handicap event. •'.••' Other firsts were, registered by Leo Christensen in the 'trophy dash, Lamar Crail of Algona and Bob Garrett. •_.-:. A Clarion driver, Dean Schroeder, winner of the feature a week earlier and third place finisher twice earlier in the evening, was taken to St.. Ann hospital during the feature Saturday 'after hi; car took a sensational jump .over the ea^t fence right -afterr)th< gtart ,df the race. He sufferei cuts on one -arm and was .no seriously injured. Willie. Klipr _ rolled his oar (with help from an 'unidentified car) during the semi- main event and was not hurt He wound up with one • third place finish. • ', . > The first five races were al) close and the winner each time was not determined until the cars reached the final lap. : Seconds were, won by Schattschneider, Christensen, who took a pair, Wildin, Fair and Larry Cook of Algona. Third place finishers were Sam Eslick, Kluse and Fair. Schroeder's flip in the feature marked the second straight week that the finale had to be restarted due to a mishap. Schattschneider and Wildin turned in top efforts all night as both got into (and out of) many tight jams that provided plenty of thrills for the customers. Schattschneider, who practically stole the show a week earlier, found himself boxed behind the pack much of the time and had to drive high on the corners, but remain? ed one of the favorites of the crowd.
