Stocks Ready To Roar Friday This Friday, May 14, about 8 p.m., the roar of modified and "~ hobby stock cars will greet the ears of racing fans at the fairgrounds here for the first time in 1965 - and that's when the new season will be kicked offl And most stock car race fans are ready - after the always-long winter wait that follows the final event each fall. Most of the cars slated to appear here tills summer will be entirely new - but many of the drivers are well-known on the local quarter-mile lay-out. Only four of the many now being readied for the weekly races here are shown above, and all are certain to be favorites. In the top row, left, Les Wlldin, Algona, who has been the season champion here the past two years, stands beside the new machine he will pilot, while at the right, Gene Schattschneider, usually high In the point standings, stands near his new entry. The fancy sedan at the left in the bottom row will be driven by Wayne Funk of Humboldt, who 1 has had. a coupe entered here for two years, while Jim Edgington, Algona, who did real well behind the wheel of a hobby stock in 1964, has moved up to the hot ones, and will drive the clever sedan at the right. Countless man hours go into the construction of each of the cars that will appear here - and while most feature older style bodies, the autos are equipped with the latest engines permiss- able, plus some features that are normally seen on sprint cars or midgets. Judging by the four autos shown here, a wider type rear tire promises to be popular during the coming season. Lamont Wellendorf Is promoter of races here and at four other tracks in the state. Officers of the track here are Ron Barton, president; Daryl Arend, vice president; Jim Utt, secy.r treas.; and Gene Schattschneider, director; all of Algona. There is also a 9-man rules committee.
