Motor Sports By The Associated Press There is concern in Sugar Ray Leonard's camp that a slight cut or a swelling near one of his eyes could cost him the fight against middleweight champion Marvelous Marvin Hagler in Las Vegas on April 6. Leonard underwent retinal surgery on his left eye in 1982. "We're concerned that because of the hysteria one fighter might be treated differently than the other one," said Mike Trainer, attorney for the former undisputed welterweight champion. "Everyone assumes that when they get into the ring they are both physically fit." "We don't want public and media concern over Ray to carry over to the fight." Dr. Ferdie Pacheco, a physician who also is a boxing commentator for NBC-Tv, has written: "This match endangers the eyesight of Leonard, as well as his life, and makes a mockery of the credibility of any boxing commission that sanctions it." Marvin Sedway, an optometrist and member of the Nevada Legislature, recently said, "I think Mr. Leonard's crazy myself. He can detach a retina again by sneezing. I think it's really fraught with danger." Trainer said that before the fight was announced, Leonard went to Las Vegas where he was examined for the Nevada State Athletic Commission by three eye specialists, one of them, representing the commission. The other two were Dr. Ronald Mi-chels of the Wilmer Eye Institute of Johns Hopkins Medical Center, who operated on Leonard, and Dr. Louis Angioletti, director of the Retinal Diagnostic Center of the New York Eye and Earn Infirmary. Angioletti was hired by Lloyds of London, the fight insurers. Agioletti, who examined both eyes, concluded: "The weak area (of the retina) was completely reinforced so that, in my opinion, there is less risk of further retinal damage. I do not find that Mr. Leonard would be subjected to any unacceptable risks. If I thought there was a 1 percent chance that he was at any greater risk to have damage done to the eye, I would sit him down and say, 'I don't think you should be fighting.'" Duane Ford, chairman of the Nevada Commission, said that Leonard would be examined again the week of the fight and that "Hagler will receive the same type of retinal examination." As for fight officials overreacting and stopping the fight prematurely, Ford said, "There will be no special rules for this fight. We do not need any. If it needed special rules, we wouldn't have a fight." v Two physicians have been assigned to the fight, Flip Homansky, a trauma specialist, and Donald Romeo, a general practitioner. Both have worked many fights. A neurosurgeon also will be at ringside. "The referee who is going (o work is not only the best in the state of Nevada but the best in the world," Ford said. The referee will be pamed next week. Leonard underwent retinal surgery on the left eye May 9, 1982, then announced his retirment Nov. 9 that year. He came out of retirement in 1984 with the idea of fighting Hagler. He was scheduled to fight Kevin Howard on Feb. 25, but that fight was postponed when he underwent a surgical procedure Feb. 14 to strengthen the retina in the right eye. On May 1 1, 1984, Leonard got up from a fourth-round knockout to stop Howard in the . ninth round, then retired again. Mo.

Compiled From News Services DARLINGTON, S.C. Dale Earnhardt ran off to an easy victory Saturday in the 200-mile Busch Grand National stock car race. Earnhardt, who is the odds-on favorite to win Sunday's TranSouth 500 Winston Cup event on the same 1.366-mile Darlington International Raceway oval, outdueled fellow NASCAR stars Geoff Bodine and Darrell Wal-trip, the defending race champion. Bodine finished second, crossing the finish line 2.65 seconds behind Earnhardt's late model Chevrolet. Brett Bodine, Geoff's younger brother and a Grand National series regular, nipped Waltrlp for third. The winner started on the outside of the front row, next to pole-winner Geoff Bodine, and was solidly in the hunt throughout the 147-lap race. His lowest position was sixth, after the second of three caution periods. But Earnhardt charged back through the leaders and regained the lead for good on lap 99 by passing Brett Bodine. Geoff Bodine and Waltrip pitted for fresh tires during the final caution period, on lap 114, but Earnhardt and the younger Bodine chose to stay on the track. After the green flag came out for the final time on lap 117, Earnhardt was solidly in charge the rest of the way. Earnhardt led the race five times for a total of 79 laps. In all, there were 12 lead changes among five drivers. The winner averaged 137.850 mph and earned $12,145 for the victory. Earnhardt, Geoff Bodine and Waltrlp all will take part in Sunday's race, which will start at noon (St. Louis time). ffl fl w IP ?

Over 25 of Americans are now leasing their cars with estimates that between 40 and 50 of all cars will be leased by 1990. Why? Because leasing gives you instant access to any make or model with no money down and monthly payments that can be as much as $100 less than purchase payments. No wonder so many men and women are coming to talk to us about leasing. We're the leasing specialists.
