r THE PALM BEACH POST SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 1987 5C Roundup Andretti likes Reverse order of Mid-Ohio Palm Beach Post Wire Services Michael Andretti likes the odds in today's International Race of Champions round at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio. Andretti will start from the pole position in the 70-mile race around the 2.4-mile, 15-turn road course, but not because he earned the top qualify- ng spot in the race for identically prepared Chevrolet Z-28 Camaros. He has the pole because he finished last in the first of four 1987 IROC events, going out in a crash on the second lap at Daytona Beach in F ebruary. The starting lineup is in reverse order of the Daytona finish, putting Andretti and road racer Scott Pruett on the front row and winner Geoff Bodine and Dale Earnhardt in the back of the 12-car field. The race is Scheduled to start at 1 p.m. and will be telecast by ABC on Sunday at 5 p.m. . . . Winston Cup drivers wanting to test at Daytona International Speedway and Alabama International Speedway at Talladega will be out of luck in June because both super-speedways will be closed for the construction of stronger safety fences, track officials said. New engine rules take effect for the July 4 Firecracker 400 at Dayto na, and several stock car teams have been trying to schedule tests at Daytona or Talladega. At Daytona, the construction work includes the installation of two more strands of 1-inch-thick galvanized cable on the front-stretch fence. The same cable Was what kept Bobby Allison's car from flying into the grand stand during an accident at Tal ladega last month. At Talladega, extra safety cable is being in-Stalled on the backstretch fencing. Allison, Geoff Bodine, Buddy Baker, Bobby Hillin Jr., Dale Earnhardt, Greg Sacks and others have tried to book testing time at Daytona and Talladega. Woodson may not join Steelers i Rod Woodson of Purdue, the Pittsburgh Steelers' first choice in the April NFL draft, has moved to Los Angeles to study under a leading track coach to improve his style as a hurdler, his agent said. Steelers spokes man Dan Edwards said Friday that the player and his agent, Eugene Parker of Fort Wayne, Ind., have not indicated whether Woodson intends to play corner-back in the NFL this year as the Steelers hope, or compete in track. Woodson is training under Chuck Debus at the Los Angeles Track, Club, whose members have set 27 American and two world records. Parker said Woodson's interest in track is not necessarily a ploy to pry a higher salary out of the Steelers. The Green Bay Packers re leased quarterback Joe Shield, who had signed with the Packers Nov. 18, 1986. He did not get into any games at quarterback, but was the holder for placekicker Al Del Greco. ... A judge has moved former Brigham Young linebacker Steve Sanders' court date to June 12 after a defense attorney requested more time to work out his client s plea bar gain agreement on drug pre scription charges.

Haugen, 28, will receive S300.000. twice as much as Pa zienza, for the first defense of his title. The scheduled 15-round fieht will be televised nationally by NBC. Haugen is 19-0-1, and Pazienza is 22-0. . . . Brockport State Colleee in New York named former University of Illi nois assistant Dan Smith head men's basketball coach.

' PAT LANGFORD; Fishing Report BY LESLIE GAINES OFFSHORE Sailfish action is picking up. Excellent numbers have been raised in the past couple of days.with many in the 6- to 7-foot range. The best bait is slow-trolled fresh ballyhoo. Another productive method is to rig a mullet or ballyhoo on a deep planer. Dolphin are also hitting, with most in the 5- to 12-pound class, but there are some occasional 30-pounders. Reports of wahoo and kingfish are scattered. INSHORE Whiting are hitting cut shrimp in the surf. Catching a bucketful is not hard to do. The bluefishing has finally slowed down, but you may still catch a few strays. Snook are still around in good numbers, but you must release them from now until the fall season in September. Trout action has been good in the Indian River and grass flat areas. Since snook and redfish seasons are both closed there is increased pressure on the trout. One of the best trout lures is the Boone Spinana. It comes in a variety of colors and can be worked as a surface plug. If you flick your wrist with the retrieve, then it will dive slightly. LAKE OKEECHOBEE Bass fishing has been good along the shorelines in the early morning hours. Black grape or tequila sunrise colored plastic worms are very good. As the day grows hotter the fish will seek shade or cooler deeper water. Use your depth finder to find rock piles or ledges where there may be a thermocline. A temperature gauge will come in handy. BEST BET Bass fishing is excellent at the Sawgrass Recreation Area for 2- to 4-pound fish. Live shiners and plastic worms will work well. 1
