?*"·'* IT ' --June 29,1975 Sunday Colette-Mail Ch»rl«6n, «·*» Virgin* Sneva Racing Again LONG POND, Pa. (AP) - Among the 33 starters in today's Pocono 500-mile race will be a young man who taught junior high school math classes until two years ago. His name is Tom Sneva, and this is his first race since suffering minor bums in a crash last month during the Indianapolis 500. Sneva, starting in the fourth row in a McLaren identical to the one that was destroyed in his crash, says he has received encouragement and good wishes from people throughout the world. He is very appreciate, but he points out, "Some people say this is very courageous of me to race again after that crash. But look at some of the rest of the drivers in this starting field. 'i'm not the first to be injured, and I'm not the first to race again." Indeed, most every other starter counts some days in a hospital bed among his experiences in the risky business of auto racing. Walther in 6th Row Salt Walther, another Indianapolis casualty, returned to racing after 2 months in a burn center and another six months of recuperation. He starts in the sixth row today. Lee Kunzman, a ninth row starter, spent a year out of racing after head injuries in a December, 1973 crash at Ontario Motor Speedway. It was the second major injury in his career, which was interrupted in 1969 by burns. '. A.J. Foyt missed this race in 1972 because of a broken ankle and burns he suffered when his sprint car ran over, him. He had bailed out when a fire started in the engine. Defending champion Johnny Rutherford broke both arms in a sprint car crash, and was encased in double shoulder length casts for months. : Al Unser spent a week in a nearby hospital in 1973 after he erased during the Pocono race. ·-, Another Injured Another driver injured here was Jimmy Caruthers in 1972, when he broke both legs and was burned. He came back to finish second last year. Caruthers displayed a different kind of.courage earlier this year when he won a battle against cancer of the aorta. Steve Krisiloff is driving with a foot fresh out of a cast. He broke itat Indianapolis in a practice crash. In the last row today is Gary Bettenhausen, who lost much of the nerve control in his left arm last July during a racing crash. He started driving again this year, using a splint to keep his arm on the steering wheel. Much of his driving, however, has been onehanded. "I'm just doing what I like to do. I don't. feel courageous," Sneva said; "But if I am, there's a few other guys in this sport who are the same way." Petty Pearson, Petty Renew Racing Duel DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP)"Richard Petty and David Pearson, the two biggest career winners in stock car racing, are warming up vocally for their annual on-track duel in the Firecracker 400 Friday. "We definitely think we have a good shot at winning the Firecracker again," said Pearson, speaking for himself and his car owners, the Wood Brothers. Pearson has won the race three straight years. · "If David beats me again this year, he's going to have to do it by outrunning me, and not by tricking me," declared Petty, who has finished second each of the past four years in this summer feature at Daytona International Speedway. Petty was thinking of last year when Pearson abruptly, slowed as they swung into the last lap. Petty, right on Pearson's tailpipe, swung sharply to avoid a collision. Pearson immediately jammed the accelerator of his Mercury to the floor, used the slingshot technique which has won many close races here to roar out of the finalturn and across the finish line in front' of Petty's Dodge by half a car length. Ethics Questioned Both came to the press box after the race, usually the winner's prerogative, and talked at and about each other for half an hour on the.ethics of Pearson's maneuver. . / . · Petty has won the Daytona 500 in February five times but never the Firecracker 400. He is within $27,347 of becoming the first $2 million career winner on the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing circuit. . The most he can win here including lap and qualifying money is about $20,000 so he won't go over the top for at least another race. , Pearson has career winnings of $1,360,951; He has confined his racing to the superspeedways the past 3Vz years and leads Petty in superspeedway career victories, 32- 28. They came into NASCAR late model competition about the same time. Petty was rookie of the year in 1959 and Pearson took that honor the following year. While the 400-mile Fourth of July event has come to a Pearson-Petty showdown the past three years, there are at least a dozen other man-and-machine combinations capable of winning.
