Slam-Bang Races Wind Up Fair Program Friday Darrel DeVries, young Charles City driver, zoomed to victory in the feature event of the Kossuth County Fair Stock Car Championship race before a large crowd on the last night of the fair Friday. There were 46 cars in the field competing for a guaranteed $1,000 purse and thrills and spills were numerous. The final event of the stock car season here will be held this Friday night. The season championship race will be featured, combined with the Powder Puff championship event and drawing for a free used car from Taylor Motor Co. here. DeVries grabbed the lead in the feature Friday with about half of the 20 laps remaining and guided his purple sedan through and around the heavy traffic to take the checkered flag first. He was followed to the line by Ted Zeimann, veteran Mason City driver, as most of the 18 cars that started the event finished. Earlier, Zeimann had driven his nifty white sedan to victory in the first heat and trophy dash. He was the only double winner all evening. The B-feature required three re-starts before Fred Jorgenson came through with a win. There • was a 6-car pile-up on the southeast turn during the fourth lap which sent a couple of vehicles to the pits, a car driven by Gerald Gatewood, Webster City, flipped in the back stretch a little later and he was shaken up and dazed, then another pair of vehicles tangled on the south turn before the finish. Eight of the 20 cars that' started finished, with Don Hilbert second and Don Sindegard third. Wind-up of the trophy dash actually came before the checkered flag dropped. Reason for the abrupt halt was a blaze in the car driven by Gary Lindgren of Ogden. Flames spurted from the vehicle in front, of the grandstand and it stayed afire until he got it stopped on the southeast turn. He then bolted out of the vehicle and was not injured. Gene Schattschneider and Charlie Hart finished behind Zeimann in the race. Orie Shipler of Algona luckily escaped injury in the first heat when his sedan went out of control, hit the retaining wall at the south end of the grandstand, bounced toward the center of the track and was clipped by. Zeimann's onrushing car. Shipleies vehicle was badly damaged and out the rest of the night. Bud Petersen of Algona was the only local driver to take a win when he finished first in the second heat, edging Dick Simpson and DeVries. Lindgren took the third heat, with Les Frieden and Wayne Meyer next in line and Hart was first, Schattschneider second and Bill Holter third in the fourth heat. The field of cars was the largest seen here for some time, and many of them came from a great distance to compete. And besides the many mishaps, there was plenty of speed and skill demonstrated.
