BRIDGEPORT— SUNDAY AFTERNOON—Brightbill ended his evening at the Reading Fairgrounds with a feature win, and thnt was number two for the day as he also won at Bridgeport and continues to dominate the modified action at the new oval. Kirk, Walt Olsen, Don Kreitz and Jim Kepplcy took the remaining top four spots. Gerry Chamberlain, reportedly, wrecked the front end of his machine and did not finish. This does not appear to be as easy a year for Gerry as was the 1972 season. The Sportsman feature was won by Ed Mumford with Bill Stief. Larry Nead. Sonny Broyles and Don Lawson in tow. A lot of action at this new track with the RSCA boys up front in the Mods and the Grandview runners showing the way in the Sportsman machines. GRANDVIEW-SUNDAY - Rained out on Saturday night, the Sportsman and Late Model action switched to Sunday night with 104 cars in competition during the presentation. Don Loder walked off with the Sportsman money, as Ron Peck tried to catch him. John Blackley, E. B. Smith and Ken Neuhauser chased the top two. Heat races were won by Frank Snyder, Warren Mutter, Mike Erb and Mike Geiser. Consolation races were taken by Bob Anderson and Scott Sowers. The Modern Stock feature went to Dick Grimlev with Ron Roberts on his bumper for second and Bob Higginbotham closing for the third position. Higginbotham. Tom Terry, Dave Posavec and Terry Vener each won a heat race as Bob Heller and Ron Paulson battled to the wire in their consolation races. There was some good looking equipment at the track in both divisions, and they put on a fine show, except for the multiple caution and red flag moments. But, the track has been widened, the surface is still new, and everyone is anxious to take a flag, so this Saturday night should be even better. The ARDC midgets are slated for Sunday night. Give them a try! OTHER RACING ACTION-Pocono Raceway is set for the Parodi Race of Champions this Sunday afternoon with qualifying and heat races starting at 11:15. A special 20 lap qualifier takes the green at 2 p.m. and the main event, 1.50 laps on the oval, goes off at 3 p.m. Over 70 entries from the modified chauffeurs for this one, it should be a dandy! Nazareth was closed for Mother’s Day but is scheduled for action on May 20 with the first evening show of the year. Modifieds. Sportsman and Figure 8 races are slated, with Buzzie Reutimann returning for another try at the track which he ruled during the past season. Life goes on at the Indianapolis Speedway as new records are set in the trial runs by many of the cars, and veteran Art Pollard gave his all to racing last Saturday when he crashed into the wall and died shortly afterwards at an Indianapolis hospital. Maybe it is time to take the wings off the Indy cars, at least at the old “brickyard”, and make the cars safer for the drivers. Penn Nations!
