Connors won a tough first then took complete control and outlasted the Swedish Davis Cup ace, 6-4-6-0 to win the $20,000 first prize. "I've changed my image," said the controversial con-troversial Connors," I have nothing more to prove. "I've just come to play."

GREGG, REDMAN WIN 24 HOURS OF DAYTONA . - Peter Gregg and Brian Redman drove their battle-scarred and rainbow-striped BMW CSL home to victory Sunday in a rainy and controversial con-troversial finish of the 15th annual 24 hours of Daytona endurance race. The BMW, its engine running on only five of its six cylinders since down, covered 2,093 miles at an average speed of 104.04 miles per hour. That, was 545 laps around the 3.84-mile Daytona International Speedway road course. The next four finishers were all Porsche Carreras, the evening marque at Daytona the previous two 24 hour races. The race was officially stopped for 2 hours, 40 minutes when water in fuel tanks of the lead cars was discovered. The problem was traced to water in a fuel truck that serviced pit tanks just after sunrise. During the delay all fuel tanks were purged and fresh gasoline was trucked in 'from Jacksonville, 70 miles away. A spokesman for Union Oil supplier of the 104 octane racing gasoline in all cars, said, "There's no scientific explanation for how the water got into the truck." One official said the possibility of sabotage was under investigation. The other two factory BMW's were irreparably damaged by water in the fuel system. The delay pleased most ( drivers, however, giving them a break to make needed repairs and adjustments to finish the race. Meanwhile, Peter Gregg savored the victory-his victory-his third consecutive in this event-along with the traditional champagne that goes to the winner, and of course, his share of the winning purse.
