flo.) Grinding Crash, Driver OK Wayne Funk, Humboldt, in fifth place in the point standings, ushered his fast sedan to victory in the modified feature during an accident-filled night of stock car races at the fairgrounds Friday night before a large crowd. Bob Haag, Algona, who has been showing promise recently as a modified pilot, narrowly missed serious injury in a crunching 2-car smash-up that marred the feature. The two photos above show the scene immediately after the crash occurred. In the top picture, Haag is being carried on a stretcher to a waiting station wagon for a quick trip to St. Ann hospital to determine whether or not he sustained any Injuries. He was back in the pit area as the race ended - with a clean bill of health. The wreckage of the car he was driving is shown in the bottom photo. The car was demolished - but judging from past experience here, will undoubtedly be readied for more action on area tracks. The mishap occurred early in the finale. Haag's auto spun halfway around on the south turn and a coupe driven by Gale White of Laurens, at the time running in a pack with three others, could not miss the stalled Haag auto - and couldn't avoid hitting it. White's car hit the Haag auto broadside, rolled it over on its top and then climbed over it, coming to rest on it. Sparks flew from the machines as metal scraped metal - and a hush fell over the crowd as no one knew exactly what to expect. Within a couple of minutes, Haag was pulled from his overturned auto and rushed to the hospital. There were several other minor mishaps during the evening's program, none resulting in serious damage to autos. Results: Time trials -GeneSchattschneider, ;19.00; Modifieds- first heat: 1.
