2-Algono (la.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, July 3, 1962 COUNTY PORTS Wiidin Takes Feature To Cap Stock Car Races Lcs Wiidin captured the feature easily and tnok over undisputed first place in the point standings during the weekly session of semi- modified stock car races at the fairgrounds here Saturday night. The races, normally held Fridays, were postponed due to Thursday night's downpour. Anollicr bifj progi-uin is on lap lierr Wednesday afternoon, July •!. when most of the lop drivers from tlir area are slated to appear liere in Ihe firsl afternoon event of the .year. Friday will find the drivers running under the lights again. Actually, Saturday's purse was the best divided of the season. No driver was able to win more than one event. Besides Wildin's win in the finale, others who grabbed a golden ring were Darrel Burns, Estherville, Everett Hutchinson, Spirit Lake, Willie Kluse. Clarion, Gene Schattschneider, Algona, and Bill Williams, Estherville. Schattschneider, who didn't get a chance to run in the time trials due to a faulty fuel pump, was second, a half-lap behind Wiidin, in the feature, despite the fact his car operated on five cylinders af- ter a spark plug wire broke off early in the race. Other seconds were garnered by Burns, Wiidin, Sam Eslick, Fort Dodge, Dick Boyd, Humboldt, and Norm Baker, Clarion. Thirds went lo Wiidin. Hutchinson, Kluse, Dean Flaws, Webster City, Gary Kirschbaum, Mason City, and Bud Petersen, Algona. A three-car wreck, involving cars driven by Burns, Kluse and Eslick, knocked Burns out of the feature. Eslick dropped out two laps later and Wiidin and Schattschneider then made a shambles of the event with their driving. There were easy wins — and tough ones during the night. Best race from a crowd standpoint was the handicap, which Burns managed to win by a slim margin from Wiidin. Hutchinson managed to stay in tight and the three fought it out to the finish line. Al Corlick, Mason City, had his midget sprint car at the track and put on a pair of demonstrations during the program. His best time around the quarter-mile oval was 18 seconds, three seconds under Wildin's best in the time trials for stocks. The midgets are slated to perform on the track the final day of the Kossuth County Fair and a large field is expected to enter. The little, midget-sized versions of the big Offenhausers will really roll. NOTICE ! OPEN BOWLING FRIDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHTS. WE STILL HAVE OPENINGS IN MEN'S, LADIES' AND MIXED LEAGUES FOR NEXT FALL.
