Pearson overcomes tire troubles, wins Atlanta KN, CM.. MOO., M^cn a. it7 [NOEPENDENF (AM) PRESS-TELEGRAM (PM)-C5 BEST IS ENOUGH FOR AZTECS, 3-0 ght detour Hubert Green hits out of sand trap on third hole where he took a double bogey 5, one of his rare rough spots en route to ,a two-under-par 70 that was good for win in the $175,000 Greater Jacksonville Open Sunday. - _.,«,*·.* HAMPTON, Ga. UP) D a v i d Pearson, overcoming a lire problem that put him a lap down early in the race, took on a full set of tires with 50 miles to go a n d sped a w a y f r o m Benny Parsons for victory Sunday in the 17th annual Atlanta 500 stock car race. Parsons, who had a decisive l e a d w i t h 100 miles left, got only two tires when the leaders all pitted for the final time. Pearson, who e a r n e d about $16,000 for his victory from the $151,900 purse, quickly made up the difference, thanks to the imp r o v e d t r a c t i o n , a n d moved out to a 1.8-sccond margin at the checkered flag. Parsons, l e a d i n g t h e NASCAR Grand National points standings, was one of the few of the original group of leaders not to encounter problems during the four hour race. Pearson lost a lap with tire troubles early in tlte r a c e , but managed to make it up during caution periods and with the usual speedy work of his Wood brothers crew. Third place C a l e Y a r borough, with his Chevro- let clearly the fastest car on the track, lost four laps midway through the race to change a broken distributor rotor. He managed to make up all but one circuit around the 1.522-mile A t l a n t a I n t e r n a t i o n a l Raceway oval. Lennie Pond came in fourth, another lap back, with a smashed-up rear end on his Chevrolet--the result of a tangle with Bob Burcham late in the race. Fifth place Darrell Wai- trip nearly lost the hood on his Chevrolet early on, when the support brackets j gave out. A long stop to tape up the problem was responsible for part of the three laps he finished be- | hind. Pearson averaged 1 2 8 . - I 90-1 miles per hour for his I second Atlanta 500 victory. He led six limes during t h e race, including the | f i n a l 31 circuits. I. Divld PM/son, Mercurv. J?l laps. 1IS.W rnil« per hour t. Btnn» Persons. Chevrdtl. 1M. 3. Ci« Yarboroixin, Cftevrdtl. £/.

TACOMA (AP) - The Aztecs, led by G e o r g e Best, scored a 3-fl exhibition North American Soccer victory over the Seattle Sounders Sunday. The Aztecs' first goal was set up by Best as he took a corner kick and had it headed in by Bob McAlinden. The Aztecs scored once more in the first half as John Mason headed in a pass from Fishna. Mason and Fisluia teamed up for the game's final goal on almost a carbon copy of their first goal. " Though Best didn't do the scoring, he dominated the game by drawing defenders to him and opening chances for his team. GRAND PRIX -- REPORTS -5:45 P.M.

Hubert, a dark-haired, quick-talking 29-year-old, shrugged it off w i t h a birdie on the next hole, moved two strokes ahead at the turn and all but clinched it with a duece on the llth. The victory, the 10th in five seasons for Green, was worth $35,000 from Ihc total purse of $175,000 and lifted him into fourth place --and ahead of the absent Jack Nicklaus and Johnny Miller--on t h e season's money-winning l i s t with $89.006. * * 1 tJogrv Ma'ftif.
