The Broncbusters today completed their first week of practice. Homer Salter is coaching the Busters for the third season. Monday will bo the last time for two-a-day practices. Starting Tuesday the gridders will go through their paces once daily at 5:30 p.m. Practices are on the field west of Ben Grimsley Gym and at I'enrose Stadium. The public is welcome to watch the workouts. First public showing of the Busters will be next Saturday night in the annual Juco-Altimni clash. Early practices were non-contact, stressing conditioning and fundamentals. A few contact drills have been run the last three practices. Monday's practice will probably include game- type scrimmage, and will likely finish up under the lights at I'en- rose. A course shaped like an elongated paper clip has been laid out at the airport for the special show. It's all concrete, and winds up with a straightaway of almost a mile. Down that stretch- the cyclists will roar at speeds up to 130 miles per hour — riding a few short feet above the solid-concrete mat The show here is a segment of Dodge' City's colorful annual National Motorcycle Rally. That's a world-famed event, and has helped to put the Cowboy Capital on the cycle-world map since 'way back in 1014. Drag racing "and road racing at that big rally had been held for years at old Ford County Airport there. But that property was sold — so a new site had to be chosen. Promoters of the event settled on Garden City as the site. It will bring some 200 motorcyclists here, plus just as many followers and speed buffs. Action starts at 8 a.m. Monday. That will be th e quarter-mile drag races, all down the concrete straightaway. That's the same strip used by the Gallahads Club of Garden City for its frequent drag races here. The Gallahads will piteh in to clock the cycle dragsters Monday as part of the festival. Cycles will hit paces tip to 150 miJes per hour in those drags — from a standing start About SOTS entries arc expected. At 1 p.m.. the lightweight mot- orcyles take over for road races. Those are machines with engines of 250 cubin centimeters or less — the smaller "jobs." Some 100 entries arc expected in that part of the day-long program. Feature event of the day comes at 3 p.m. It's the grinding 100- mile Grand Prix. That event is for the larger motorcycle s — with engines of 45 cubic inches and under. i j They will whin around the course in a series of intricate twists and turns, designed to test the riders skill much like the slalom in skiing. When they hit the straightaway, they will open to as much as 150 mph. Scores of top-notch riders will bo on hand One will be Al Gunter of Los Angles. He has won 10 they prove their worth to the world. Frank Kunce has been here and in Dodge City preparing the tracks for the rally. He is accompanied by nationally-known Floyd Clymer, publisher of some 200 magazines and booklets on all type s of racing. Both are former cyclists, having competed in the pioneer rallies in Dodge City. Riders will come here from both coasts, and a number of the entries are "fresh" out of other rugged meets in the Midwest. Two factory motorcycle teams will compete here, One will be the Hariey Davidson entry with veteran Dick Hammer "aboard." Other will be a Yahama, built in Japan. Both can go 130-140 miles per liour. Extra speed will be "available" for motorcycle riders in this year's competition. For the first time, entries will be allowed by AMA to use streamline fairlings on their machines. That gives them a "boost" of 10-20 m.p.h. in straightaway speeds. Page 14 €lf.y Telegram Saturday.
