Southern stackers move to Midwest; fast pace expected Associated Press CAMBRIDGE JUNCTION, Mich. — Major league stock car racing, Southern style, moves into the Midwest for the" first time today and a slam-bang, hell-for-leather chase it likely will be. The occasion is the inaugural Motor State 500 mile race for NASCAR Grand National cars. The event, at the comparatively new Michigan International Speedway in the Irish Hills section west of Detroit, carries posted awards of $95,125, with $17,600 going to tfie winner. The race, typical of the high; speed, carnival-type shows that have made stock car racing the South's No. 1 spectator sport, is expected to draw a crowd of about 70,000. Speedway officials said 60,000 tickets already had been sold. After a week of sorting out their cars and becoming familiar with the two-mile tri- oval course, most of the hotshot drivers predicted the early stages of the race would be run at a pace of 154 to 155 miles per hour. They also predicted this first event ofr the 4,000-pound 600-horsepower cars on a course which has long straights and shallow turns will be the most competitive of the season. "Six or seven cars will run right together from the start," said Lee Roy Yarbrough, NASCAR'S current leading money winner with $95,040. "And with the drafting technique that we can use here, seven or eight other cars can stay with the leaders. "It should be quite a race," added the 32-year-old Columbia S.C., driver who already has won four distance events this season, including the World 600 at Charlotte, N.C., last month. Donnie Allison earned the pole position for the 1 p.m. start, posting 160.135 miles per hour in a factory-backed Ford on the first day of time trials. Yarbrough got the other front row spot with a 159.829 clocking. Other pre-race favorites include Dodge's Bobby Isaac, that make's fastest qualifier at 159.165 and good for third spot in the lineup: Ford's David Pearson, Richard Petty and Cale Yarborough; and Dodge's Bobby Allison and Charlie Glotzbach follow. All of these drivers were turning laps in the 160 mph Friday, considerably above their qualifying speeds. Yarborough, last year's big money winner with $137,700, said the drafting technique will play a major role in the race. By drafting, a slower car gets into the immediate slip-stream of a faster machine and is "towed" by the vacuum thus created. AC Wlreohelg BEAR IN TROUBLE — Jack Nicklaus, two-time winner of the U.S. Open, finds the going rough in the third round of the current U.S. Open at Houston. Jack sends the ball and sand Hying from a trap on the second hole arid takes a bogey five. Nicklaus has a 141 — four strokes off the pace. Story Page 14). -. * Don Aronow captures Bahamas 500 race FREEPORT, Grand Bahamas (AP) — Veteran powerboat driver Don Aronow of Coral Gables, Fla., climbed out of a sickbed yesterday to chop more than two and one-hlalf hours off the record for the grueling Bahamas 500. Aronow, former world powerboat champion and perennial U. S. titlist, won a neck-and-neck battle with Melvin Riggs of St, Cloud, Fla., nipping him by only six feet over the 512-mile course. Twin 475-horsepower engines pushed Aronow's 32-foot boat The Cigarette around the course in 8:24:15. The previous record, set last year by Odell Lewis of St. Cloud, was 11 hours flat. Ironically, Riggs was a crewman for Lewis for the past two years when Lewis won the first two editions of the 500. Lewis passed up this race because of spinal disc trouble. Riggs, driving a 32-foot boat originally built for Lewis, exchanged the lead with Aronow several times during the course of the contest. They were never more than 30 seconds .apart for the last 40 miles from Sweeting Cay to the finish line here. Riggs' craft, Mona Lou, was powered by twin 450- horsepower engines. Aronow passed up last year's 500 because of a stomach disorder. The same ailment might have kept him in bed for this year's race had it been run Friday as originally scheduled. It was postponed because of high winds and heavy seas. "I was really feeling sick yesterday," said Aronow. "It wasn't better today, but I took some antibiotics the doc gave me for it last year and I only had a temperature of 101 when I got up this morning." "My wife was still asleep when I snuck out," grinned Aronow, who was slightly nauseous. Bob Harrell wins Manzy main event A fast pit crew and faster driver combined to take last night's 30 lap main event for limited modifieds at Manzanita Speedway. Bob Harrell, a bridesmaid in four previous races, flashed to his first main event win thanks to his pit crew who changed rear ends between running of the trophy dash and the main event. Harrell blew the rear end as he took the checkered flag in the dash for the trophy but made it back in plenty of time to make his seventh place starting berth in the feature. Harrell chased Bob Flak for 26 laps before sneaking by on the inside. Flak hung on to second while Monroe Van Meter ended up third. Two-time ARA sprint champ Jerry McClung finished fourth with rookie driver Jim Jones fifth. In the bike races Byron Boaz continued his winning ways as he overtook Jon Sellers with one lap to go and went on to capture the open expert main event. The night's only serious accident came at the conclusion of the open novice main when Oliver Carter slammed the front retaining wall after taking the first jump. He was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital and no report on his condition was available late Friday night. The race route was from Lucaya to Gun Cay via Great Isaac Light, across the flats to the Berry Islands and Nassau. After circling New Providence Island, the fleet went to Eleuthera and through Current Cut on a run up to the finish line. Other leaders in the 28-boat field were Peter Rittmaster of Miami, third; Bill Wishnick New York; Robert Raut- bord, .Miami Beach, fifth; Gale Thayer, Sarasota, Fla., sixth: Jerry Langer of Miami, seventh; and Steve Sirois of St. Cloud, eighth. Thayer, Langer and Sirois each used four 140- horsepower outboard engines. Lead held by Tountas SEATTLE (AP)-Pete Tountas, Tucson, led the way as the field was cut at the end of 32 games yesterday in the Professional Bowlers $32,000 Open here. Tountas' total for 32 games was 7215 pins. This included 250 bonus pins he collected for winning five of his eight games in yesterday's play. Don Johnson, Kokomo, Ind., was in second place with 7212 and Ed Bourdase, Fresno, Calif., was third at 7201. Bourdase won all eight of his matches yesterday. The 16-man field shot its final eight games last night with the winner picking up the $3,000 first prize. Pete Tountas, Tucson.
