Hutchinson News Thurs., July 30, 1981 Page 12 'That doesn 't change9 Lies races for the challenge By Brett Marshall Staff writer What would keep a 35-year-old race car veteran interested in continuing his career? Nobody could answer that better than Wichitan Frank Lies, who at 54 still has a burning desire to compete. "When it's race day, the challenge to compete is still there. That doesn't change," Lies said last Sunday during the running of the 25th Annual Grand National Championships in Hutchinson. "Maybe off the race track, on the days when I'm not running, I don't have the desire to compete. But I still love to race cars. When I don't enjoy it anymore, the time will come to quit." Lies didn't finish among the top five during Sunday's Super Modified Feature, but he was still his usual bubbly self during ceremonies beforehand. He was honored as the only driver to compete in all 25 Grand Nationals. "This (competing here) certainly brings back a lot of memories," he said. Lies has won the Feature at the Grand Nationals three times, the first coming in 1957 at Oklahoma City, following it in 1958 in Hutchinson and the last coming in 1968. "I remember it (the first victory) well," Lies said. "A lot better than Frank Lies the rest of them. Back then it was a big deal in everybody's mind. We had to qualify at each track. To get here you had to at least win an A Feature somewhere, so you knew there was nothing but quality drivers here." Lies said the large crowds that attend the Grand Nationals is nothing new (more than 9,000 attended this year). "The first race we had here (1958) they packed the house," Lies recalled. "It's been that way every year. I think it (Nationals) meant more to the drivers and owners then than it does now. Now they have the NCRA (National Championship Racing Association) series and that means a lot. But to anyone who races, this is still the biggie." Lies has seen much improvement in racing cars since he first started back in 1947. "There's more safety rules and the cars are faster," he said. 'The equipment is playing a much bigger role now. The pit crews and mechanics are much more in the limelight. It used to be the drivers did all the work." The fact that the Grand National is the only daytime major NCRA race enhances the event, Lies believes. "We've got an excellent track to run on but the bad part is that is comes during the daytime," Lies said. "It's tougher on the cars and the drivers. Truthfully, I like daytime racing." Lies' days as a youth were spent in Colwich, a small town just outside of Wichita. It was there he developed an interest in racing. "I went to watch a race and decided I liked it," he said. "I got a '34 roadster and went out on the track. I didn't know nothing about it. I really liked it and have been doing it ever since then. It's just been a continual thing." Lies handles personal investments as his regular job, racing part-time as a hobby. "It's like any other hobby, you've got to enjoy it to keep doing it," said Lies. "We're just like baseball or football players. All men are little boys who got larger." Frank Lies has been a big man for several years in the world of NCRA racing. Oilers sign QB Reeves SAN ANGELO, Texas (UPI) -The Houston Oilers Wednesday signed former Cincinnati Bengals and Philadelphia Eagles backup quarterback John Reeves, who has not played in two years, in a move to so- Wichita bowler double perfect in league play WICHITA (UPI) - A college bowler who was second-string last year remained stunned Wednesday that he had put together a string of two perfect 300 games, 33 consecutive strikes in all, in league play the night before. "It still hasn't all sunk in yet," said Jay Eddy, a second-teamer last year at Wichita State University. "My knees started knocking in the 10th frame of the second game, but after that I was OK." Eddy had a 196 average before he started rolling late Tuesday with Raymond and Cindy Mefford in a three-person scratch league. Eddy started with a strike, saved two spares and then made no more mistakes. "After I started hitting, everything was so perfect," Eddy said. "I just closed my mind to everything but my game. They all seemed like perfect strikes." The pin-setting machine at West Acres Lanes slowed down a few times, but Eddy said he wasn't ruffled. He kept throwing perfect balls - for 33 strikes in a row. The 268-300-300 for an 868 series is thought to be the best in the nation this year and the fifth best ever, according to the Wichita Men's Bowling Association of the American Bowling Congress. The string of 33 strikes reportedly equaled the most consecutive strikes in league play, and the back-to-back 300 games was only the 13th time it has happened. Eddy called his parents in Topeka, Kan., to tell them of his feat, but it apparently didn't sink in. "I started dividing 868 by 3 and thought, 'Nan, he must have bowled that in six games, maybe even five,'" recalled his mother, Mary Eddy. She then forgot about it and went back to sleep.
