George L Foster, Pastor HAYS (HNS) - When Susan Pater graduates from Fort Hays State College next spring, her ambition is to become a nurse. She is looking forward to helping people. But until she dons her nurse's cap in May, her primary '.'patient" will be a stock car. Susan, a 20-year-old from Athol,' is one of only a handful of women nationwide who strap themselves behind the wheels of blaring, nearly- junked automobiles to slide and slam around a dirt oval track. "I'm pretty sure I'm the only girl driver (in the area)," she said. "My dad has been racing for a long time and he said I'm the first one he's ever heard of." Although it would be stretching things to say that Susan was born to racing, she certainly was raised on a steady diet of hot rodding. Her father, Don, has busted many a knuckle under the hood of a friend's car, she said. Her brother has the "rodding bug" too. "My dad would always fix his own cars, in fact! he was,a mechanic for an old friend of his who raced in the circuit," she said. "For as long as I can remember, I've been around cars, so (driving) kind of came naturally to me." But it's a long step from watching father and brothers work on cars to actually racing one. Susan made her bid to jockey a stock car last year when the Kansas racing association . formed a new class of racing. She explained that the association, a local group operating on tracks in Smith Center, Stockton and Oberlin, had two classes for six- cylinder cars — modified and hobby. "I race in the hobby class, which means that my car is nearly the same as a car on the street," she said. "The modifieds have speed equipment and a whole lot more money tied up in them." Her main reason for trying her hand at racing, Susan said, was to learn more about, the workings of an automobile. But the challenge of racing had great appeal also. "Really I'm just a girl who likes cars. And I like the idea- of competing, of trying to finish first. There's a great deal of self-satisfaction at the end of a race:-" That's about all there is waiting for the winner at the end of a race. Susan said no money is made in this type of racing ("just enough for gas") unless it becomes a full- time thing., Susan got her racing start on what seemed at the time to be an off-the-cuff suggestion. "When they formed the hobby class, I said to my brother, I'd -love to do that, would you help me build a car?" she said. "I was serious, but I sure didn't think anybody else was." A racing neighbor donated a car to the cause and before long Susan was gutting the interior — a necessary operation in stock car racing. She said there was a lot of comraderie between racers. "They want each other to race because that's their competition and without it it wouldn't be fun," she said. "But as for revealing any secrets — there's no way. "I was apprehensive about the reaction I would get being the first girl. My dad was afraid they'd bump me off the track or something. "But it never happened, almost everybody has gone out of their way to help. My folks have told me that they've heard some grumbling in the stands but I've never seen it." After she gutted her car and installed safety features like a rollbar, Susan's only task was to gain confidence in her ability. Starting well back in the beginning, she had ample •opportunity to eat dust. "It wasn't much trouble to learn — I was way in the back," she said. "My car — believe me, it was a heap — was just too slow. We gradually made it speedier as I got better. "A lot of driving is reflex and common sense and there's an element of guess involved. I think how well you do in racing depends on what kind of driver you normally are." Susan hasn't done too badly in her first season. She has yet to win a race but has placed as high as second. And she's kept the number of rookie mista-kes to a minimum. One of her crackups involved the winner of the race — after he had won. "It was his fault. He had lapped me just as he crossed the finish, but I still had another one to go. "The winner is supposed to drive another lap before going into the pits, but he turned right in front of me. I had to crash into him."
