Upper Des Moines Thursday, August 24, 1961 KOSSUTH COUNTY Stock Driver Take 3 Wins, Then Forfeits State Fair Entries The following " local people ( have entered livestock or show ' horses in the Iowa State Fair. Ueimar ' Kern and Melvin J. Kern, -Algoha, have entered poultry, W. H. Riedel, Burl; has entered apiary, and Bob McCui- lough,. Algona, has entered a show horse. Another exciting night of stock car races at the fairgrounds Saturday, which featured good driving and very few mishaps, was capped by forfeiture of three first place finishes by Bob Garrett, Fort Dodge, always a, top performer here. . Apparently several disgruntled drivers, who have eaten Garreit's dust much of the time all summer (he's won ai leasi a dozen events here), wanted to find out if his car's engine was entirely legal.

BOWLING SHOES BOB REIDEL & DOYLE DAILEY — PHONE CY 4-2831 was filed ai Ihe end of Ihe evening's program. Garrett's • car was then taken to a local service station, but a wrench was not put on it before he announced he would for- feit'his winnings. According to some sources, there are several other modified ears driving here, but no charges have been lodged due to the fact the cars normally don't fare so well, anyway. 'The forfeiture by Garrett gave Sam Eslick, Fort Dodge, who was driving the car normally piloted by Gene Schattschneider who was on vacation Saturday two first-place finishes and mo-9- ed Les Wildin up from seconc to first in another. • Actually, Garrett, who many fans feel could have won races with practically any car here, has shown as much skill behind the wheel this summer as any driver who ever toured the local oval. He won the first heat, handicap and feature Saturday night—or at least his car came in first. Bud Peterson took the second heat with Eslick second; Jerry Winters, Mason City, won the third heat with Duane Seible. Mason City,, second; Bud Fair, Ft. Dodge, took first and Wildin | second in the trophy dash; ana Leo Christensen, West Bend, and Kenny Wall, Storm Lake, were first and second in the semi-main event. Dale Rickh'art, Garner, took the time trials with a :29.9 time, one of the fastest of the season. A hoped-for demonstration of a super modified car by Rich Brock, Ft. Dodge, failed to materialize (much to the disappointment of the large crowd) when mechanical difficulties developed. It is hoped he will be here this Saturday night to take u few spins around the track. Several drivers turned in good jobs Saturday. Besides Garrett, top performers were Wildin, who kept (some way) from doing a roll down the straightaway during one of the heat races and therefore failed to wreck his car, Winters, who has proved to be a top pilot, and Christensen, who came close to mishaps a couple of times and kept his 8-ball right in the thick of things as usual. It will be interesting, as it has been all season, to see just what develops in the way of entries when the program gets underway this Saturday night.
