Sullivan Spins By LARRY MORRIS Danny Sullivan of Louisville, Ky., won the 1985 Indianapolis 500 auto race Sunday, May 26, after taking the ieaa in tne iwui tap ot tne zuu-iap race. He had been in desperate pursuit of veteran driver Mario Andretti for half the rave when he lost control a split second after passing the former Grand Prix champion on die 120th lap on the 2Vj-mile oval track at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Possi Owl Golfers On The Seymour High School varsity golf team tied with Paoli for first place in the golf sectional . tournament Saturday, May 25, at Otis Park in Bedford, but the Owls lost on the fifth -mail score to finish second in team standings. The top three teams advance to the regional play Saturday, June 1, at Bedford. The Owls and Rams battled to a 335 tie after 18 holes. Other team scores were Bedford-North Lawrence 337, Washington 350, Bloomington South 351, Southridge 358, Brown County 359, Washington Catholic 360, Bloomington North 366, Shoals 372, North Davies 376, Jasper 377, Spring Valley 388, North East DuBois 389, Forest Park 390, Mitchell 412, Edgewood 422, and Brownstown Central 432. Individual scores for Seymour were Mark Ellis, 41-4081; Craig Elmore, 41-4283; Scott Cooper, 43-4285; Godsey Takes Ray Godsey of Bedford won the 40-lap late-model feature race Saturday night, May 25, at the Brownstown Speedway. The win was worth $1,200 to Godsey and car owner Fred King. It was Godsey' s second feature win of the year at the quarter-mile track. Last week's feature winner Dusty Chapman led the first seven laps of the race, with Godsey and Steve Barnett hanging right with him. Godsey took the top spot away from Chapman on the eighth lap. A yellow flag on the 13th lap slowed the action for awhile. Once the race resumed Paul Shafer, who had started 15th in the 17-car field, moved into fourth by lap 14. Godsey, Chapman, Barnett, and Shafer were running side-by-side and bumper-to-bumper. Barnett then suddenly pulled out of the race on the 27th lap, leaving a three-car battle. Shafer moved into second on the same lap. Shafer was challenging Godsey until Gerald Dixon spun in front of Godsey. Fortunately for Godsey, Dixon stopped on the track. JThat. benefitted Godsey because Shafer had passed him. But track rules go back to the last scored lap, which meant that Godsey had his lead back. On the last lap Shafer pulled even with Godsey going down the back stretch. But Shafer couldn't get the bite on the track coming out of the corner and Godsey edged him for the win. Chapman was third, with Ulionois driver Roger Long finishing fourth and Lee Fleetwood of Indianapolis fifth. Chapman was the top qualifier at 15.157 seconds. Godsey took the dash, while heat races were captured by Brian Asbury, Larry Taylor, Shafer and Don Hobbs.

Miraculously, he avoided the wall and other cars and continued to his pit to replace four heavily frayed tires. Andretti swung low to avoid Sullivan, and both drivers continued 1-2 in the race. ! Sullivan told reporters that Andretti took his line and they were side by side. All four of Sullivan's tires went To Regional Matt Waskom, 44-4286; and Joel Armstrong, 43-4588. Medalist for the meet was Craig Bowden of Bedford-North Lawrence with a 77. The state's 13th ranked team from Seymour will join Paoli and Bedford in the regional match. Seymour coach Larry Cooper said the Owls had chances to win the meet outright, but "we had one eight on a par four. We played the back better than the front, which I think is harder. We just have to start thinking of each shot as important." Mark Ellis of Seymour was fourth in individual scoring with his round of 81. For Brownstown Central, Justin Krietenstein shot 52-60103; Drew Ackerman, 50-52 102; Larry Curry, 51-64105; Mike Benter. 52-60112; and Alan Axsom, 56-66 122. Feature Race semi-feature. !

A 65 to the apron, the asphalt area below the actual driving surface on the track, and, upon pulling back in to the driving lane, he lost control of the Miller American March-Cosworth. He spun almost two full turns before regaining control and continuing behind Andretti.

Also named to third team was Eddie Bird of Springs Valley, who scored 32 points against Orleans, 31 against -Salem, and 29 against Final-Four bound Southridge. Also named to the third team honorable-mention list were Jimmy Apple of Salem, Chris White of Seymour, Ritchie Deaton of Austin, Scotty Bex and Rick Howe of Bedford-North Lawrence, Marty Collier of Bloomington South (whom Brownstown will pick up on their schedule in the 1985-86 season), Tim Qualkenbush of Orleans, Dave Richards of Mitchell, and Neil Lancaster and David Humphrey of Clarksville.

Honorable mentions to the small-school team were Tim Dunaway of Corydon, Steve Couch of Crothersville, Joel Day and Bob Part in of Salem, Bill Smith of Clarksville, and Shawn White of Austin. Two Sectional Baseball Games Are Played Two games were completed Mon-. day, May 27, in the high-school baseball sectional tournament at Seymour ' before thunderstorms halted play in the second inning of the Seymour-Crothersville game. In the first game, Madison Shawe defeated Austin, 5-4. Austin had tied the game at 1-1 in the fourth on a solo home run by Steve Martinez, but Shawe put two runs across in the bottom of the sixth to take the lead. . Tony Barnes singled to knock in what proved to be the winning runs for Shawe, and pitcher Rob Rucker held off ah Austin rally in the seventh to clinch the win. He struck out nine Austin batters and walked none. In the day's second game, Madison shut out Scottsburg, 13-0. It was the third time the Cubs had shut out the Warriors this season. Greg Gosman was the winning pitcher for Madison, striking out 12 batters while walking six. The Warriors got four hits. Madison slapped 15 hits en route to the victory. The two winners are scheduled to play at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 1, in semi-final action. o w- Yam ever at Indianapolis for the 35-year-old bachelor. Averaging 152.982 mph for the win, Sullivan and his team received a check in the amount of $507,662 at the Monday evening, May 27, victory banquet. Andretti, winner in 1969, who led more than half of the 200 laps, told reporters, "Second is nothing here, it's nothing anywhere. At this stage of my career nothing satisfies like winning." Colombian Roberto Guerrero, second as a rookie in 1984, finished only llVi seconds behind Sullivan in third place. He was the only other driver to finish on the same lap as Sullivan and Andretti. Al Unser Sr. was fourth, one lap down. He may have figured much stronger in the final outcome had he not been penalized one lap earlier in the race for running over his own air hose in the ph. When the final standings were released Monday, three-time winner Johnny Rutherford, who finished fifth, was set back to sixth because of what officials said was a yellow-light violation. Johnny Parsons was moved up to fifth, and rookie Arie Luyendyk was placed seventh. On lap 124, rookie Rich Vogler got. out of the groove trying to pass and smacked solidly into the first-turn cement. He was taken by helicopter to Methodist Hospital, where he was treated for a concussion and two cuts above his eyelid. Trying to avoid the accident, 1983 . winner Tom Sneva spun into the wall. A bouncing tire came down inches from his cockpit as he escaped unscathed. The race had five leaders, Sullivan (68 laps), Andretti (107), Emerson Fittipaldi (10), Bobby Rahal (14), and Scott Brayton (1). At $450 per lap, Andretti pocketed $48,150 in prize prize money. When the 400,000 or so race fans return to the Speedway next year, they will probably see some changes. Joe Cloutier, president of the Speedway, has admitted that the old garage area will be torn down and replaced with a modern structure. There was also a clamor throughout the day Sunday to slow down the cars at the Speedway. CART, which sanctions every race except the Indy 500, has given new rules for 1986 to Cloutier for his consideration. The '86 formula for CART and the Speedway, still sanctioned by USAC, is expected to be announced in a few weeks. There has been talk of limiting the ground effects next year by making smooth-bottom cars mandatory. There were those at the track Sunday who say the designers already have flat-bottom cars on the drawing boards which will go every bit as fast as the 1985 models. Sommers Fires Ace At Hickory Hills Brownstown Central High School athletic director Louis Sommers fired a hole-in-one Thursday, ' May 23, at Hickory Hills Golf Club south of Brownstown. Sommers was substituting for another player in the Men's League and was playing a round with Delmar Achelpohl, Rick Shoemaker, and Bob Lahrman. He used a nine iron to ace number four coming across the lake. It was the second hole-in-one of his career. The first came about 20 years ago at Salem.
