Green Flag Will Drop Friday For Stock Races The first Friday night stock car race of the 1966 season at Kossuth Speedway, located at the fairgrounds here, will be held beginning at 8 p. m. this Friday night. That's when an expected large field of autos will take the track for warm-ups, followed by the first event of the night at 8:30. A total of 39 owners have registered cars with owner Dwight Cook and most are expected to be in the pits awaiting the first green flag of the year. Registrations this year are from a larger area than ever before, with many from this area and others from widely-scattered points, ranging from Alta to Mason City. Cars registered from this area include: Algona, W. D. Specht, Butch Householder, Dick Yeoman, Leonard Hanson, Delane Pooch, Don Hilbert, Don Hammer, Larry Sowers, Leonard Pesicka, Jim Wolfe, M. H. Honsbruch, Wayne Meyer, Darreld Bunkofske and Don Minard; Bancroft - Don Doocy, Marv Gangstead; Wesley-Gary Zwiefel, Irwin Hildman; Burt - Mike Woltz; and West Bend - Les Frieden. While all drivers are not known at present, many owners will be piloting their own vehicles, the Honsbruch car will be driven by Gene Schattschnelder and the Meyer car byJlmEdgington.both popular local wheelers. Berry Hobbs, Alta, Willie Kluss and Gary Hill, Clarion, and Dick Boyd and Roy Peltz, Humboldt, who have driven here off and on since the track was re-opened in 1960, have also signed this year. While the cars are not modi- fieds (the roaring hot ones seen during recent seasons), they are not hobby stocks, either (the slower, bang 'em up vehicles) and speeds, despite the fact car- buretion is limited, will approach those of the popular modified cars. According to Cook, the better stocks this season will go around the quarter-mile layout here in nearly the same time as the modifieds did. And that's moving. A change in admission policy has also been announced in this newspaper for the new season. Adults will pay only $1, while children under 12 will be admitted free with parents. The track is ready, most of the cars, are, too, so Friday night promises to be only the first of many great nights of racing here this year. A special added attraction this week is a drawing for a free used car, being donated by Schultz Bros, garage. Webster City Surprises With Loop Track Title Webster City picked up four relay victories to come from behind and nipped Eagle Grove's vaunted outfit to win the North Central Conference Track Maet at Clarion Wednesday afternoon and evening. The meet had been postponed from the preceding Saturday.

Potthoff And Reding Lead Bears To Win The one-hit hurling of Don Potthoff, senior righthander, and the clutch stick work of Bill Reding led Garrigan to a 4-2 victory at Graettinger Thursday. The win was the second in two starts for CoachDuane Kramer's club. Garrigan counted a pair of runs in the top of the first as Denny Long walked and stole second. He scored when Dick Bleich's long fly was dropped in left field and Reding squeezed Bleich home with run number two. Graettinger closed the gap to 2-1 with a run in the home half of the first and knotted the count in the fifth with another counter. A walk to Reding and singles by Dick Muller and Dick Salz gave the Bears the go-ahead run in the top of the sixth and an insurance tally was added in the seventh when Long walked and Joe Becker and Reding banged singles. Muller led the locals at the plate with a pair of hits in four tries, while Bleich got the only extra base hit, a double, and Reding knocked in two runs.
