Johnny Rutherford Is the defending champion. By JOHNNY RUTHERFORD For The Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - You can scuff and bump around at other tracks, but not here. The track is very narrow, with very, very hard walls on both sides. You have to be cautious and spot one. With the speed and the magnitude of the Indianapolis 500 in mind, you tend to be a little more cautious. '. Starting back where I am, 17th--exactly in the middle of the field, is not the optimum situation. But then I-'started 25th in 1974 and won it. Actually, I've had a very good run for four years with Team McLaren -- pole position 36 points, another mark. He winner in 1973, victory in 1974 and 1976, the pole was accorded a standing ova- again "in 1976, and second in 1975. '. I can definitely say going with them was the turning pointih m y career. . . . Even in the beginning we seemed to hit it right off arid everything was going our-way.' We've had good communication. The cars have suited me and the crew has known how to make them run good. So I think we've got a good thing going, and hope.we can keep it going. 'j How we will do Sunday remains to be seen. We have a new car and engine combination. We've been trying to sort this thing out. We're 9-1, Danny Ongais -- the dark horse ... if Indy ever had one, he is it; likes to lead if he can, or break it trying. Johnny Parsons -- best ride he ever has had; equipment is proven, lime to prove driver. Mike Mosley -so quiet you will never know he already is in Victory Lane. Bill Vukovich -- is Sunday the first day of the rest of his life?; may not be a "backup" on this team for long. Tom Sneva -the pole position winner is plenty fast enough, but will his Cos- worth make him a spectator make. Here are the odds, and the "morning line" comments: 5-1, Pancho Carter -- no one very close, I think. It's just one of those things ever has won Indy starting in where we've got to wait and see because it's eighth place, 1 but his new Eagle before it is over? the first time we've run this combination here. j s flying. Probably less fuel 10-1, Roger McCluskey-Uoyd worries than any other car. 5-1, Gordon Johnc'ock -- ran 200.4 in Goodyear tire tests in March; won't go 200 Sunday, but should go 500 easily. ·· 7-1, Wally Dallenbach --sol tion from 11,461 fans at the Coliseum when it was announced, .three minutes before the game ended, that he had been named the most valuable player of the playoffs. . This car, a McLaren M24 with a Cosworth engine, picks up where the M16Ieft off. That in itself is worth going on with, even if we don't win with the M24 first timeout. We're still in a learning curve with the car. The only thing we can do right now is look back at our 1974 performance. If we can match that, and keep our act together and run all day, then I think we stand a very good chance of dretti - would be rated much winning. The McLaren has become more than just a good car for me. It's become part of me, like a comfortable shoe. Working with Tyler Alexander, our crew chief, and all the guys on the crew is the same. We're very comfortable together and I think that's where it's at--what 'every .guy looks for: a good, comfortable situation, a car they can make fit you, and everything going your way. : · Ruby -- throw a blanket over these guys; if they have a party Sunday night, it will last until next year. 12-1, George Snider -- lots of experience, but he will need it id, good. If you want to bet with his car. show, this is the bet. Mario An- 13-1, Clay Regazzoni -- any rookie who completes his driver's test at 191 has to have some ability; car is basically higher if there was more con- · fidence in his Cosworth engine; best in class. sound; is team? Sage to try two sports Eaton . Two University High athletes are college-bound next fall and both arc looking forward to the challenge, of college sports competition. Larry- Sage, son of Dr. and Mrs. George Sage of 1933 26th Ave, will be staying in Greeley to attend the University of Northern Colorado. Kim Eaton, daughter of Mrs. Rex Eaton of 2430 12th Ave. CX.,' will attend New Mexico University in Albuquerque. Sage, whose father is chairmen of the men's physical education department at the university and also coached the basketball team at one time, intends to try out for the football and basketball teams. Winner of this year's Doubenmier Award as the outstanding athlete at UIIS, Sage was outstanding in both sports in Welco competition and also lettered in basketball and track as well. Technically, Sage will be receiving only a football scholarship, at. UNC to play under .coach Bob;Blasi. But Bias! and basketball coach Thurm Wright have agreed to 'let Sage also try his'hand at basketball after-the fall football season is over. 'Although double-sport athletes are common in college, the football-basketball' combination is somewhat unusual. Sage said the; opportunity to continue playing"-both sports was one factor in choosing to attend UNC. . . · - - . · ; · " A .wide"receiver arid defensive back at UHS,. Sage made all-state after being on the all- Welco team two years.- His senior year, Sage · caught : 33 passes for 699 .yards and 11 touchdowns. He- 'scored ' two other touchdowns and a coversion for a total of 82 points in the season! He also.led the team in interceptions with four, and averaged 23.8 yards in punt returns on five tries, and 29.6 yards on 16 kickoff returns, one of which went for a TD. · His senior year in basketball saw him average 21.4 points per game, shooting 41 per cent from the field. He also led the team in steals and assists:He will be playing guard at UNC, although he' was' a forward at UHS. But at 6-3, 190 pounds, he will be bigger than. . most guards! · - '..' : Miss Eaton will be receiving a golf scholarship to play under coach Henry Sandles at UNM. The assistant pro', .at.-the university course, Sandles is in his second year with the women's golf team. . . . Although Miss Eaton starred in : basketball at UHS, she will be concentrating .on golf to help achieve her goal of eventually entering the pro circuit with the Ladies Professional Golf Assn. She has been playing golf five year's and has been one of the top junior women's golfers in the state. She once took fourth in the Denver Women's Open, fourth in the Greeley Women's Invitational, third in the Colorado 'Junior state championships in 1973 and fourth in the recent Fort Morgan Ladies Invitational.' - . A five handicap golfer, Miss Eaton was .-.among the first females to compete on the same field with males in any sport as she played with the University High boys golf team two years ago. The pressure of playing against boys didn't bother her too much, she said. "I enjoyed playing with the guys because when they hit the ball further, it makes you want to do better. It also gave me a chance to play more golf in the fall than 1 1 used to do." ' , . ·'.. She said she can hit 'a lot further now than she used to and is looking forward to getting help from 'a college coach. An all-Welco -player in basketball two ' years, Miss Eaton got honorable mention all-state honors last year. She was MVP at UHS two years, averaging 20 points as a junior and 15 as a senior. 2519 llth Aie. · 356-2450 BACKPACKING CAMPING - . .
