(UPI) — A pair of Chrysler Corporation products driven by Buddy Baker and Pete Hamilton will try to stem the challenge of three Chevrolets Sunday when a howling pack of 40 stock cars gets the green flag tor th« $236,325 Daytona 500. Baker, the strapping eon of NASCAR old-timer Buck Baker, is a heavy favorite after putting his Hdrry Hyde-prepared Dodge on the pole with a sizzling qualifying speed of 185.662 miles per hour. Hamilton, making a comeback after running only five races last year earned the outside front row spot in his Plymouth but his qualifying speed was over two miles per hour slower than Baker. Another "comeback-" driver, Cale Yarborough, will start third in a Chevrolet. Little- known Clifton "Coo Coo" Marlin and veteran Indianapolis driver Gordon Johncock hold the next two spots in Oiev- rolets. Baker described the Dodge, which was driven by Bobby Isaac last year, as "a super- good race car" but refused to say it is the best ride he has ever had. "When we came here, we wanted three wins —win the pole, win our 125-miIer and win the 500," said Baker. "We expect that Sunday we'll have three of three." Baker, a 32-year-old CSiarlot- te, N.C.

He was followed by Australia's Frank Matich, driving a Repcomatich A50, who clocked 61.4 seconds. Matich is forced to win Sunday's •lOO-mile race to have a chance to win the series. late Fireball Roberts as the only driver to sweep all three events over the 2.5 -mile high- banked Daytona Speedway. Richard Petty, who h&s won the Daytona 500 three times shares the fourth row on the starting grid with defending champion A. J. Foyt. Petty has experienced handling problems with his Dodge while Foyt has been generally dissatisfied with his new Chevrolet. Three other favorites —Isaac, David Pearson and Bobby Allison -will also be starting back in the pack. Isaac's Ford and Allison's Chevrolet are small-engine cars and have not been able to match the speed of the bigger engines. Pearson, who missed the opening qualifying because of the death of his father, will start 20th In the Wood Brothers Mercury wlilch he drove to victory last year in the Firecracker 400 and which Foyt drove in the 500. Baker said 10 cars have a shot at the $32,900 winner's purse but Yarborough narrowed that figure to Baker, Petty, Pearson, Isaac, Allison and himself. "One of these cars should win if they last the race," said Yarborough. Most drivers feel inexperienced pit crews will cost Marlin, a surprising winner in one of Thursday's 125 -mile qualifying races, and Hershel MoGriff who will start sixth in a Plymouth. "TTiey oan rim good but If tiiey have to stop under the gieen flag many times It will make a difference," said Yarborough. Pearson said he was concerned Baker and Hamilton might team up in a two-car draft and pull away from the field, but Hamilton, who had engine troubles In his qualifying race, said he may not be fast enough to stay with Baker. "If I get my car working a little bit better it might work like that, but if I don't run any better than in the qualifying race I might not be able to stay up," said Hamilton. Wrecks Mar Permatex 300 DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (UPI) — Bill Dennis moved his Mercury in front in a thrilling four-car blanket finish Saturday to take his second straight victory in the wreck-marred Permatex 300 for late model sportsman cars. Dennis led the final 20 miles but at the finish his Mercury led a bumper-to-bumper parade past the checkered flag with Red Farmer's Ford second, Denis Giroux third in a Chevelle and Sam Ard fourth, also in a Chevelle.

In the first game of the Madison Square Garden twin- bill, Ruben Montanez hit on 15 of 17 field goal attempts and scored 32 points to lead Duquesne to a record-setting 127-85 rout of St. Peter's.

The Tar Heels led by just five points, 68-63, with 7:07 to play but outscored the Seminoles 123 in the next four minutes to take control of the game. Stahl and Karl each had four points during the streak. Florida State got 29 points apiece from Reggie Royals and Otis Cole, but the Seminoles were outmuscled under the boards and lost the battle of the rebounds 34-23. The Seminoles, runners -up to UCLA in last year's NCAA tourney, were hoping to land one of the nine at-large bids to this year's tourney but their loss was their seventh in 23 games and virtually eliminated tliem from consideration. They could still land a the National Invitation Tournament. Amazing Fellow! James Dennis McElroy, 28-year-old Panama Citian, is an unusual individual. For one thing, he can grab the belt of a 275-pound man with his teeth and lift him four feet in the air. And that's not all. McElroy, who naturally is nicknamed Hercules, stands between two cars backed up to one another, holds each and neither car can move an inch, though the drivers put the gas pedals to the floor board. He does the same thing with .two airplanes. And he does other stunts, too, like pulling a 17,000-pound mobile home, biting a dime in half, eating light bulbs, and laying down on a bed of nails, placing a concrete block on his head and having someone hit the block with a 16-pound sledge hammer. Once he bet a man $2,000 he couldn't cut his arm off with the stroke of an axe. Hercules must have won. He still has the arm. The amazing Panama Citian says he can outrun a car but we haven't seen him do that. Hercules is proud of his family. He says his 11-year-old daughter can already lift 150 pounds, and adds: "I'm the only person who can beat my wife arm-wrestling." How does he do it? McElroy says it is a case of mind over matter. "It's just concentration; anybody can do it if they will concentrate," he says. ^Nhen James was 10 years old he ate a beer bottle. His mother ran to the doctor with him, and the medic was amazed anyone could live with broken glass in his body. Hercules has never been in a fight, adding: "I don't go around looking for trouble." Please Vote! This is another reminder that if you haven't voted for someone for Bay County sportsmen of the year, please do so. Some fine citizens have been nominated for the two honors, one as the 1972 sportsman and the other for prior years. Bay County Sports Association is sponsoring the movement, and plaques will be awarded to those who are selected at a buffet dinner March 8 at Long Beach Restaurant. A committee will study the nominations and come up with the answers. Among those already nominated are Henry Vickery, Roy Martin, Gary Terrell, Joe Tom King, who died last week, Harry Murphy, Eddie Green and Frank Brown. John Colmery, president of the association, attended a function in Birmingham Friday night, when a half dozen prominent sportsmen were inducted into Alabama's Sports Hall of Fame. The association hopes to get a similar undertaking going in Florida, and maybe have a sports museum established in the beach area, where pictures and sports paraphernalia of Florida's present and past sports greats may be put on display. It would be quite an attraction, and we can't think of a better place in Florida to establish such a shrine. Redfem Busy Tlie athletic directorship and head coaching position of the new Mosley High School has been filled with the selection of Jim Redfem, former Rutherford coach. Jim is now engaged in lining up his schedule, and he would like to get in touch with any 1-A or 2-A coach in this area who would like a football game. Mosley will start small, with no senior grade, and will not be able to take on the big boys yet. Redfern said Chipley is interested in a game and he hopes similar schools will also contact him. Mosley will share Tommy Oliver Stadium with Bay and Rutherford, which means there will be some varsity games on Thursday nights as well as Friday, maybe even one or two on Saturday nights. Throw in your junior varsity games, plus those of Jinks and Rosenwald junior highs, which do not play on their own campuses, and you have a busy schedule for Tommy Oliver Stadium. The Civitan Club also brings two outstanding college freshmen teams together here in a charity classic. Speaking of Mosley, Redfern will not have the advantage of spring practice, but since he has been coaching at Bay and Rutherford a long time he knows most of the athletes who will be candidates for the first Dolphin team. Rutherford's principal, Luther McDonald, and the school board will no doubt name a replacement for Redfem soon. The Rams will have to start spring training soon, but the new coach, whoever he is, will not have to worry about a schedule. Rutherford will play an all-Big Five Conference schedule again, with virtually the same 10 dates as last year. Bay High's Tornadoes, under Head Coach Joe Hull, have already concluded their "spring" training. It was a fine session, even though it was h61d virtually in mid-winter.

We told him he would not play in tonight's game but he would return to full status by next week." Rogers did enter the game in the final minute.
