Page 6 Wednesday, June 2, 1976 by BUI Roland Roland s IRyinidlyp laras-.., aindl Small A mid-western storm cancelled the last 98 laps of Sunday's Indianapolis 500, washing away what was developing as the most exciting and competitive com-petitive race ever at the Speedway. Although Johnny Rutherford never received the checkered flag as such, he was declared the winner win-ner since he was leading A.J. Foyt by 15 seconds when the rains came. Last year, as you may remember, Rutherford was in second place after an untimely pit stop . when it poured and had to settle for the runner-up runner-up position behind Bobby Unser. At the end, 27 racers were still on the track in the virtually accident-free race. The passing and strategic control of the racers was the best ever as quite often packs of a dozen or more cars would form and the expertise of the drivers was quite evident as they zipped down the straightaways straighta-ways and held close to the grooves in-the corners. A.J. Foyt complained bitterly that Rutherford took improper advantage of the yellow caution light. Once while the caution light was on Foyt said, "I went into the pits with a 23-second lead and came out with a four-second lead." Rutherford's Ruther-ford's explanation was that he didn't do anything that the other drivers weren't doing as well. It might be noted that A.J. Foyt took one more pit stop than John which could account for an additional ad-ditional loss of approximately 30 seconds, keeping in mind de-acceleration and acceleration ac-celeration time. Shortly before the rain, a front sway bar on Foyt's car was broken but the rain delay gave his crew time to remedy the problem. Had it not rained at all , he would not have been competitive for the remainder. Foyt has a strange way of evening things out. Another month of May comes to a close and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will remain quiet for the next 11 months. Perhaps next year, A. J. Foyt will capture that elusive fourth Indy triumph. Elsewhere in motor racing, David Pearson won the World 600 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Speed-way and a first prize of $50,000. Janet Guthrie turned in a very good effort as she finished 15th and was still running when Pearson got the checkered flag. I might note that this was the first stock caivrace Janet Guthrie had ever seen' Nika Lauda of Belgium won the Grand Prix of Monaco on Sunday and the defending world champion takes a commanding lead on the Grand Prix circuit. .This famous race through the streets of Monte Carlo will be seen this Saturday Satur-day on ABC's Wide World of Sports. Also on Wide World Saturday will be the track and field trials for the Montreal Olympics coming up in late July . In basketball, the Boston Celtics lead the Phoenix Suns 2-1 in the best of seven series for supremecy in professional basketball. Game four will be tonight at 7 p.m. on CBS with game 5 to begin at the same time Friday evening. It was a most exciting weekend in golf, as Roger MaltBie showed courage and brilliant shot-making to capture the first memorial tournament tour-nament at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio. This tournament a creation by Jack Nicklaus on a course he designed might well become a premier event oh the tour. In regulation play, no golfers were under par, as MaltBie and Hale Irwin tied at 288 even par, before MaltBie won on the fourth hole of the playoff. The toughness and character of this golf course display the personality of Jack Nicklaus; who saw a dream come true this weekend. On the local scene, the Homestead Wasatch Open will be held June 2-4 at nearby Midway. If you're not a player, come out and root for the Park City contingent. We can use the moral support. sup-port. Lastly I've been informed by Jerry Fry that the softball league begins next Sunday and he has established the Timberhaus as his favorite team. As a matter of fact, he believes the Timberhaus Tim-berhaus is the only team around who can beat he Cincinnati Reds. Well, good luck Jerry and good luck to all the teams in the Park City Softball Soft-ball League.
