"But I have to do what I think is right." Reese revealed his drug habit in a cover story in Sports Illustrated magazine last June. The judge Thursday gave Reese an indeterminate sent prison for at least six months for violating his probation by using cocaine. "I don't know whether this is right or wrong," Dade Circuit Judge Ellen Morphonios Gable told a courtroom packed with reporters, television ence of six months to five the state in the Morris cocaine trafficking case, but felt he had to because Judge Joseph Durant had warned Reese five years ago. Mrs. Gable, who also will hear the Morris trial, agreed. "Judge Joe Durant ... had the faith and trust to put Mr. Reese on probation. Mr. Reese blew it. That's the bottom line," she said. One of Reese's attorneys, Robert Josefsberg, refused to let his client comment on the sentence. Reese's wife and two sons had left the courtroom during a break. "I'm rlpan niwfl AiA it mr years. Under the rarely-used law, the Florida Department of Corrections will determine Recreation softball how much time the former defensive lineman serves. Mrs. Gable also ordered Reese to be enrolled in a prison drug program. She allowed him to remain free until Jan. 11, when he is to report to her courtroom. Prosecutor George Yoss, who said Reese could be paroled after serving three months, told the judge he was impressed that Reese had pleaded guilty without making any deals, knowing he could go to prison for as long as 34 years and that the decision Would be made by a judge with a toughj reputation. "He pleaded guilty and he wanted to face the medicine," Yoss said. "That impressed me more than what anybody else said about Don Reese." The defense pleaded for probation. Reese, who will testify against former Dolphin Mercury Morris next week, and ex-teammate Randy Crow-der were sentenced to one year in jail and four more years of probation in 1977 after selling cocaine to undercover police officers. In June, five weeks before his probation ended, Reese told the magazine of cocaine use in jail and after his return to the NFL with New Orleans and San Diego.

But he came back Friday with his improved 141.770 to grab the 16th starting berth. "There's, no problem with starting 16th, said Kyle. '.'We started 18th at Dover. Roekingham is the kind of track where you have to race the track as well as the field. You can get loose at Rockingham real quick. "We were running just as tuick as anyone else during aturday's fast practice session," he continued. "No one is going to run away from anyone else. It's going to be a super competitive race. The qualifying times ' showed that." All 15 of Thursday's qualifiers surpassed the 140 mile-an-hour mark, topped by Yarborough's event and track record mark of 143.228 mph. And the quick times didn't let up Friday. All toll, 21 drivers surpassed the 140 mph barrier. Following last Sunday's rain, all 36 cars were impounded at NCMS.

Instead, it's young Kyle Petty. And for a good reason. Kyle, the 22-year-old son of stock car's racing king, Richard, led the second-day qualifying last Friday with a speed of 141.770 mph (eighth fastest overall) and during the final practice sessions Saturday ' afternoon was clocked as fast as any driver in the field. Take these successful pre-race accomplishments, toss, in the fact they came in the same car that produced "a second-place finish during the CRC Chemicals 500 at . Dover in September and you come away with an explanation of the reason for Kyle's rosy outlook. , , "There's no question about it: We're the most optimistic about this race than any other we've run this season, said Kyle. "It's exactly the same car throughout that ran so good for us at Dover last month. Ain't changed a spring or nothing. Just a few little minor adjustments. That's all. "The car is running real . good. It really feels perfect," added Petty. "I think we'll be in good shape when we get back down to Rockingham.
