Ggjesburg.Register-Mail, Golesbufg, 111, Thursday,June 7, 1973 23 *Murph* Makes Race Cars Go DonH Be Umpire Baseball season is no time to be an umpire pitcher Steve Dunning, left, and manager as the picture above shows. Umpire John Ken Aspromonte, center. Rice is beset by the Cleveland Indians' Major League Box Scores By BARRY TARSHIS MONTEREY, Calif. (NEA)William "Murph" Mayberry is an cvcn-tempcrcd 40-year-old man who makes his living tinkering with cars. Not your normal everyday Mustangs, Chargers and Gremlins but cars that cost upwards of $30,000 and travel in excess of 180 m.p.h. Mayberry is a racing mechanic — currently the chief mechanic for Hogan Racing Limited. He has been involved with automobile racing for 20 years, working with some of the biggest names in the sport, among them Jackie Stewart, A. J. Foyt and Al Unser. Mayberry, of course, is hardly a household word — even among racing aficionados — but most of the professionals in trie sport consider him one of the two or three best, if not the best, mechanic in racing. Mayberry's main concerns at present are two Lola T330's. Both cars are basically the same — open - cockpit, single- seat, open-wheeled racers similar to the type that race in the Indianapolis 500, except that the engines are smaller. But the two drivers in the Hogan team — David Hobbs and Brett Lun* gcr — have different personalities and different driving styes, and most of Mayberry's time is spent tailoring each car to meet each driver's individual specifications. "When most people think about racing mechanics, they think about pit stops," Mayberry said recently. "But only a very small part of our over-all job takes place in the pits during the race. There are no pit stops as such in Formula 5000 racing. Technically our job is over as soon as the race begins, and starts up again as soon as the race ends."' Like many mechanics in auto racing today, Mayberry once entertained notions of becoming a driver and for awhile, in the mid 1950s, raced his own LOB Angeles ab r h bi Russell 5 0 0 0 Buckner 4 110 Davis 4 111 Ferg's'n 3 0 2 0 Cra'Xord 4 0 11 Cey 4 110 Joshua 3 110 Lacy Sutton Culver Pacl'r'k Hau Garvey Lopes 4 0 2 1 10 0 0 0 0 0 0 lOOO 0 0 0 0 10 11 0 0 0 0 Chicago ab r hhi Monday 4 0 0 0 Beckert 4 1 Wil'ams 4 Hiscr 0 Bourq'e 4 Santo 4 Card'al Rud'ph Kes'ger Hooton Aker 0 0 1 0 2 0 0 0 2 1 2 1 1 3 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 Total 34 410 4 [ Total 31 6 9 6 Score by Innings: Los Angeles 100 000 003—4 Chicago 000 024 OOx—6 DP—Chicago 1.

The Pioneers are working out at 6 p. m. Porsche Spyder at some of the major .tracks around the country. "I gave up driving," he said, "because too many of the people I knew were getting banged up and because I never liked racing in the rain. I don't regret it. I accept the fact, that the driver is the star but I get a tremendous kick out of getting the car ready." According to Mayberry, who estimates that his own personal tool "kit" is worth $15,000, the most important quality a man can bring to the mechanical side of racing is desire. "It's not how much you know that makes you a good mechanic," he says. "It's how much you care. You're constantly checking details. There is simply no room for oversights or mistakes. Anything that can go wrong with a regular car can go wrong with a racing car, except that if it happens during a race, when the car is going 175 miles an hour, you're in for trouble." Mayberry adds that the glam- Jerry Blundy Places First In Modified BLOOMFIELD, la. — Jerry Blundy of Galesburg won the 20-lap main event for super modified cars at Bloomfield Speedway here Sunday. Taking the lead on the sixth lap, Blundy led the rest of the way to win the season opener on the Bloomfield track. Blundy also finished second in the trophy dash and was forth in his heat. Larry Cramblett, Bushnell, as first in his heat but placed i ird in the main event. However, he turned in the fastest time trial, 17.4 seconds, on the 1/3 mile track. Cliff Blundy of Alpha was second in his heat and fifth in the main race. Although second in his heat, Dean McGee of Galesburg did not place in the 20-lap race. orous image often projected by auto racing — the parties, the pretty girls — rarely, if ever, filters down to the mechanics. "We just don't have the time to play when we're in a series," he says. "If we're not actually racing, we're testing — constantly trying to shave seconds, constantly working to eke out every ounce of fuel. Then there's always the chance of the unexpected — a crash or a blown out engine. "I can remember weekends when we've worked 30 hours straight trying to get a damaged car back in shape for a race. That's the sort of drama the general public never sees— tnc long distance calls, the scrambling around for parts. But it goes on at most races." Mayberry and the other four members of his crew (one of whom is Carl Hogan Jr.) travel from place to place in a huge van that houses both cars, as well as a veritable warehouse of spare parts and tools. He cannot estimate the number of motels he has slept in of the roadside diners he has eaten in. His "home" is in Lime- Hock, Conn., where Hogan Racing has its headquarters but from Feb* ruary to early fall, he's on the road. He was married once, but only for two months. "It just didn't work out," he shrugs. To Mayberry, who was raised in a Philadelphia orphanage, it is the "team" aspect of racing" that appeals to him as much as anything else about the sport. "Until I got into racing," he says, "I never really understood what it meant to belong to something, to feel part of a small group. A racing team like ours is probably closer than most families. The only way we can work together is to have absolute confidence and trust in each other. I don 't think there 's another sport where you find this closeness."
