Box score: KOSSUM COUNTY "1 PORTS. 4-Algona (la.) Upper Dei Molnes Tuesday, May 15, 1962 Area Trackmen Readying For State Action Area slock car fans will got a chance to yrll their liinijs nut this Friday evening whrn a summer-long series of race events begins at Kossuth Speedways at the fairgrounds here. Time trials on Iowa's newest and only high-banked quarter-mile track will get underway at 8:30 p.m. It is planned to have an 8-event program every Friday from then until next fall, ace irding to Lamont Wellendorf. track manager. At least five cars from this area will be in competition here this summer, according to latest reports. One, the S and S Special, sponsored by Dutch Honsbruch, local druggist, and driven by Gene Schattschneider, local mechanic, is show here. Pictured standing by the car are Darrel Wubben, left Larry Sowers, center, and Schattschneider, right. The Wayne Andorfer-Don Hum firm, Algona, which had a pair of 00 cars in action in this area last year, has a new 00, another metallic purple charger, that will have many followers. Les Wildin, Algona, will again drive for them. Also reportedly building cars are Don Doocy and Bob Gangstead, Bancroft, and Leo Christensen popular West Bend driver, is getting his old 8-Ball Special all zipped up for another season here. There will undoubtedly be other cars from this area that will appear here during the season. Many of the other fine drivers who competed here last season have also indicated they will enter cars here. Semi-modified cars will be perfectly legal here this year, a chance from the set-up last summer when stock models were supposed to travel the half-mile lay-out. The track, recently cut down to a quarter mile and perfectly saucered for high-speed cars, will furnish a real challenge until it reaches perfect condition. As can be seen in the large photo above, the S and S Special is well constructed under its outside shell (inset). A solid framework of welded pipe fur.iifhes a cage in which Schattschneider sits. It features center steering and the driver wears a safe y belt that reaches around the middle and shoulders. The gas tank is a Thermogas bottle and is mounted behind the well-padded seat. Four shiny pipes aim toward the back from the engine's left side and a cut-away hood covers the three carburetors that furnish gas for the powerplant. The auto originated from a 1933 Chevrolet and uses a 195-4 Chevy engine which has been rebuilt for racing. It also has a locked clif.'erential which makes both rear wheels pull evenly. -HVERNE (5) Trauger, ss D.
