New Car Posts Win Approximately 500 people were at Osceola's Speedway last night to watch Bobby Smiths black Chevy' take the C class feature race and Sonny Johnson's black racer take the A feature. In third position for most of the race, Smith won the purse on the last turn when the second place car driven by Butter Bean Goolsby crashed into the leading car drvien by Rufus Bishop. After ' Goolsby . eliminated Bishop, Smith had only to coast to the checkered flag. C-car favorite Buford Ward almost set a new track record qualifying, time in his Chevy with 18.9 seconds, Just .9 off the mark. Johnson's black racer had never been on the track prior to last night but it apparnetly made little difference as he had the best qualifying time for A- cars with 15.3 and took the main event. With Johnson in pole position and veteran Don Kerbough on his right, the two battled for five laps when Johnson took the lead for good. Kerbough kept chasing and narrowed the lead to a scant car length at the checkered flag. Old pro Wayne Woodward made an unexpected appearance just before the A fast heat with a sleek red car. The A drivers had a short care but Woodward only lap- ed the car several times and never entered a race. Cason Coach Dwight Wil- jams pulled him in the ninth n favor of Bobby George, the bird baseman-pitcher. It turned out to be a very good move. Hampton had lost the first two hitters to bases on balls after working both to 3-2 counts. It was at this juncture that George took over. He got a pinch-hitter on a ground ball, but both runners moved up. Then ArkHola Bo Adams put on a suicide squeeze. The batter, however, popped his bunt into the air. George, vho has cat-quick reflexes, grabbed it and fired to third for a game-ending double .play. Cason Coach Dwight Williams was impressed with the Stretch- Russell K.
