Six Drivers Top 180 Miles Per Hour at Indy INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Grant King is a car owner, designer, builder and chief mechanic who runs the No. 1 "shoestring" racing team for Indianapolis-type cars. "We're the only ones who run up front of those who build their own cars," King said. "Our cars have always been up front, been competitive in their time." Last year. King's entry finished sixth at the Indianapolis 500. He expects to do even better this year with top rookie prospect Tom Sneva driving for him. Sneva turned in some of the fastest laps Monday as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway opened for practice for the May 26 race. While King specializes in the low-slung open cockpit racers, he spends most of his time building dirt cars, sprints, midgets and various racing parts, such as radiators. He employs up to nine persons year-round and runs a shop for painting, body work, machining and repair in his plant a few miles west of the speedway. Building cars that run as fast as 200 miles an hour is sometimes based more on instinct than science. King noted. "Our cars are not 100 per Celtics Face the Pressure Tonight MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee Bucks' Coach Larry Costello has tipped his hand. but the pressure will be on the Boston Celtics tonight to react. Costello said Monday he will challenge the Celtics with the same three-forward alignment the Bucks had used to win 97-89 Sunday, squaring their National Basketball Association championship series at 2-2. By starting 6-foot-7 reserve forward Mickey Davis at guard in place of Ron Williams, the Bucks created a size mismatch against Celtic guards Jo-Jo White and Don Chaney. With Davis working the 6-3 White inside for easy shots that produced 15 points, the Bucks harnessed the press Boston had used in earlier games to wear down 35-year-old Oscar Robertson. Sunday's victory regained the home court advantage for the Bucks. Winner of tonight's nationally televised game (9:30 p.m. EDI) can clinch the best-of-seven series by winning at Boston Friday night. A seventh game, if needed, will be here Sunday. Davis repeatedly took White to the baseline Sunday and scored eight points in the first quarter. Celtics' Coach Tom Heinsohn later used Chaney, Paul Westphal or.forward John Havlicek on Davis, but the shifts took pressure off Robertson and Buck forward Bob Dandridge. Robertson, able to advance the ball more quickly to the Bucks' frontcourt. helped set up 7-2 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for 34 points and Dandridge for 21. "If they switch Havlicek from forward to guard, they have to come up with somebody on Dandridge." Costello said. "In that situation, we can play Mickey and not get hurt." Celtic forward Paul Silas said. "We're.going to have to adjust. It's awfully tough when they take you down low like that."

"You know basically what will work and what won't. After the car is built, a lot of things are built on. bolted on. as needed." H i s Offenhauser-powered "Kingfish" chassis, similar to the popular Eagle, is as competitive as any he's built. His two entries for the 500 are the same ones he fielded last year. So far this season, Sneva has Times Herald, Carroll, la. ^ Tuesday, May 7, 1974 V qualified one car on the front row for one race and led another. But new power restrictions will force King to build new cars next season. "When we had all that horsepower to waste before this year, you could tolerate a little clumsi- ness in the cars." he said. "But little things make a big difference now." The cost of the new cars will make it tough for King, and probably for a lot of others, to stay in car ownership, something he was forced into a couple of years ago to stay in racing. "I'm a chief mechanic, not an owner," he said. "I keep hoping somebody with money will be impressed enough with our operation to take over the ownership. But the longer I do it myself, the farther away I seem to get from finding an owner." Others over 180 m.p.h. were Mike Mosley. Salt Walther, Steve Krisiloff and Tom Bigelow. In all. 27 rars made it on the track, surpassing tho pre- vious opening day high of 13 in 1961. Fvi -:i winning races such as Indy, with an estimated $250,000 winner's purse, wouldn't solve King's money worries: "The year we win here, we might break even." Sneva was one of six drivers who topped 180 m.p.h. Monday in the first day of practice. Bobby Unser paced the field with a 188.245 circuit. 1 1 3 34 4 '•> 4 4 5 5 Monday's Games San Diego 7, Philadelphia 6 Los Angeles at Montreal, ppd., rain San Francisco at New York, ppd., rain Only games scheduled New York Detroit Baltimore Cleveland Milwaukee Boston Texas California Chicago Minnesota Oakland Kansas C.
