The 1968 Indianapolis winner and USAC driving champ led all but eight laps of the'race in an Olsenite Eagle owned by exracer Dan Gurney.

Donohue's triumph gave him the points lead 64-52 with four events remaining on the schedule. Only ;a complete collapse of the 'Roger Penske-Donohue team could spoil the pie.

TENNIS RESULTS ROUNDUP B INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The prestige of American tennis will be at stake in October when the U.S. Davis Cup team meets either Brazil or Romania in the Cup Challenge Round, and there are some problems shaping up already. Non-playing U.S. team captain Ed Turville was edgy Sunday after watching the finish of the National Clay Court O p e n Championships here. The players considered the best bets to perform for the U.S. had a relatively poor showing on the same surface they'll use in the Challenge Round. Cliff Richey, the man slated to be the top U.S. player in singles, got to the finals but lost to Yugoslavia's Zeljko Franulovic in a lacklustre and subdued performance, 6-3. 6-4, fl-fi. fi-3. The tall, dignified Turville said, "The recent poor showings have opened up the entire field. Except for Stan (Smith) there's really no sure person on the squad. "Cliff has not had a good clay court record. He has lost to \Jaime) Fillol, (Harold) Solomon and Zeljko on clay and this is the only championship he has reached this year," Turville added. He said, "Cliff is not the aggressive player he %yas a year ago or even at Wimble- ton." As for the rest of those invited to attend the Davis Cup Trials, Turville had some positive thoughts and some negative ones. "Certainly Clark (Graebner, a semifinalist here in singles and a finalist in doubles) had played much better," Turville said, "But Tom Gorman has been a major disappointment on clay. His losing in the first round here in both singles and doubles was a shocker for me. "I am pleased, though, to have Frank Froehling's serving coming back. He'll be a tremendous help in doubles JOHN NEWCOMBE . . . on the way to victory (AP Wirephola) for us if we can team him with somebody." ^ . . . Turville plans to do one thing new during the upcoming trials. "I will, propose to bring in four of our top college players, possibly Solomon, Jimmy Connors (the NCAA champion), Roscoe Tanner (who played well in reaching the semifinals here) and Eddie Dibbs (who also reached the semifinals). "These kids, all Junior Davis Cup Team members, are great clay court players and they'll give the others some good hard work.

"Why," he.added, "the Romanians and Brazilians play on nothing but clay courts over there and my boys won't touch a clay court for five weeks." TORONTO (AP) -- John Newcombe of Australia stood behind his big serve to overwhelm Tom Okker of The Netherlands 7-6, 3-6, 6-2, 7-6, and win the men's singles crown at the Canadian Open Tennis Championships Sun ; day. Normally not a big advantage on clay, the powerful Aussie's cannonballs kept Okker off balance while his serving game grew stronger as Sunday's match progressed. The v i c t o r y was worth |10,000 for Newcombe and increased his e a r n i n g s to $79,641. Okker, playing in his third final in four weeks, received $5,000 to push his winnings to $84,451. Eyonne Goolagong of Australia almost played a "walkabout" -- the term her coach Vic Edwards uses for falling asleep on" the court--before she triumphed 1-6, 6-3, 6-2 over Virginia Wade of England. Miss Goolagong broke Miss Wade's service eight straight times in the second and third sets to reach tonight's final against Francoise Durr of France. The steady Miss Durr upset second-seeded Rosemary Casals of San Francisco 6-0, 2-6, ,6-2 in a semifinal played Saturday. The men's doubles final will feature the top-seeded twosome of Okker and Marty Riessen of Evanston, 111., against the fifth-seeded duo of Arthur Ashe of Miami, Fla., and Dennis Ralston of Bakersfield, Calif. Okker and Riessen had little trouble in beating Bob Lutz of Los 1 Angeles and Charles Pasarell of Puerto Rico 6-1, 6-0 while Ashe and Ralston were extended 7-6, 7-5 by Andres Gimeno of Spain and Roger Taylor of England. SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) -- For John Gardner, it was a long match. For Raul Ramirez, it was too long. Gardner, an Australian who is a junior at Southern Methodist University, lost the first two sets but came back to win the next three from Ramirez of Mexico to win the U.S. Mens Grass Court Tennis Championship Sunday, 1-6, 4-6, fi-3, 7-5, 6-4.
