Lindy McDaniel, who came on for Chicago in the eighth, won it for a 4-1 record. Billy Williams hit Texas, Missouri In Crucial Game a homer for the Cubs and Howe Goss connected for Houston. Tracy Stallard, 1-3, picked up his first victory since Sept. 3, 1961, by checking the Reds on seven hits and cutting off a ninth inning rally after Cincinnati had closed to within one run.

"You can't protest politics." The day after the race, Jones slugged Sachs in an argument at a private luncheon in an fndian- apolis motel. Called before USAC officials Monday, Sachs apologized for any embarrassment he might have caused. "I knew I was wrong even before being called in," he said. Sachs admitted using poorly- chosen words, not having all the facts and that he never intended to question the integrity of any Sachs contended he spun in Jones' oil which forced him out jf Threatens To Suspend All Gymnasts Sachs added, "At the end of the race I was the most stupid of the 33 drivers on the track for unintentionally endangering the lives of other drivers as .veil as my own."
