Idaho Free Press, Monday, July 17,1967 - 8 Renfro Scorches to B Asphalt Honors Charger Closes On Point King MERIDIAN - Kenny lienfro ot Horseshoe Bend showed everyone, A class and B class alike, Saturday evening al Meridian §eedway. The pilot of No. 48 B class car took advantage of a hot 'rack, which is the bain of the .·ilgh powered V'te and the bow of the sixes, as he lowered fie track record for the Bs to 14.23 and captured the B main. The record was previously held by Bob Neely of Ontario. Henfro swept from last position in the B main to take the checker by a large margin. Morrie Fuller started on the outside pole in the A main and with the help ot an accident held out for the win. The victory was doubly impor- Iznt to Renfro since 'B point leader Bob Neely spun midway through the main and finished far back in eighth position. "Neely has a real lead in the point standings, "commented the B main winner, "i don't think he has (he title cinched by any means though. As long as the season Isn't over, I have a chance of catching him." lienfro started dead last in (he main but quickly worked his way dp through the Held. Dwayne Dillon, a rookie this season, beat Renfro into the lead but the Horseshoe Bend driver turned a series of sub-15 second laps that brought him upto and around the young Nampan. The younger Dillon's brother Jim made his final appearance at the Speedway and not even a wreck could keep him from completing the last lap. Jimmy was running near the front In the A main when Ron Porter of Hoist spun forcing the Meridian vet into the South wall. The radiator on Dillon's car was ruptured and the machine was unabie to continue. Mot to be denied, the sidelined pilot went to the pits and borrowed his brother's B machine ajid completed the race although he was not allowed to run for money half of thestartingfield of twelve was eliminated. Dick Sola gave the best performance of the evening as he went up into the air, tumbled along the main straight and landed upside down I n fr ont of the stands. After the wreckage was cleared away Tom Zumwalt lock commandand came home the winner. Robert Scharf captured the D main but (he big story of the class involved Rick Poulton of Kuna. Poulfon has been a front runner all season and grabbed fast time tor his class Saturday with a 17.18. After the main event, however, the young Kuna pilot had his mount bought out from under him, D drivers are forced to sell their machines for $150 if the offer is madefofhcm. Poulton plans to field a new car as soon as possible. Sunday at (he Ontario Fair- 'grounds speedway Neely captured the B main handily fol- loweiHy Ken Kissell and Ron Porter. Porter drives an Aclass machine but due (o lack of contestants the As and Bs were combined.

Saturday night the Cubs rallied for a 6-4 victory with John Lung supplying two homers good for three runs. '7hose two balls (Scott) Harvey and (Romel, Red) Canada hit off Lloyd Kingfisher got up in the air and the wind carried them out," said Cubs Manager George Freese in summing up Sunday's loss.

Tonight the Cubs open a four- game series here with cellar- dwelling Salt lake City. "We've got to get a winning streak going," said Freese in nominating Darcy Fast to start the opener against the Giants. "Maybe something will happen to Ogden." Manager Tom Lasorda of the Dodgers left here in a happy frame of mind. "You can tell the Caldwel! fans 1 still pre- rM d .500 on the road will bring us the flag." l In Saturday's game the Cubs spotted "invincible" Ogden pitcher Larry Burchart a 3-0 lead and then beat him with a five- run sixth inning, scoring three earned runs-- the first off Bur. chart this season. Lung's two-run homer produced the first markers in the big frame. Tom Whelan's sacrifice fly scored another, and er. rors by Burchart and his relief- er, Frank Staab, each netted » tally. Lung added his second homer in the seventh for the final Cub run.
