Clearfield Progress (Newspaper) - May 24, 1976, Clearfield, Pennsylvania PAGE EIGHTEEN THE PROGRESS, Clearfield, Curwensville, Philipsburg, Moshannon Valley, Pa., Monday, May 24, 1976 Srock Takes Late Model Thriller at Speedway By BANTLEY MYERS Clearfield Speedway Writer Dave "Grumpy" Srock won the Clearfield Speedway's late model feature Saturday night in a thrilling race with 19 other strong racing machines. Ken Confer took his first cadet feature, Clate Husted was too much for the coupes and John Heaton was first in the novice division. Twenty finely-tuned and humming late models were in the starting line when the green flag flew for the 25-lap feature. Srock was in the fifth row to begin but slipped into the third spot quickly and was pushing leader Bud Garvey and Larry Mitchell from the second spin around the half mile oval until the 14th lap. Nestor Peles' spinning car, 100-L, made for a restart on the 11th lap but Srock couldn't get past Mitchell until the 14th. One lap later Grumpy had Car 77 in front and gradually pulling away from the rest. Ten cars were actually in contention most of the time. The drivers stayed pretty much in a single line lap after lap as they roared around the track. About 50 yards separated Bud Garvey in front and Paul Wagner in the 10th position for half the race. Once Srock got to the front in the parade he moved out to a commanding edge over the rest. Last week s winner, Clate Husted, could do no better than sixth in the terrific, crowd-pleasing event. It wasn't until the 20th lap that Pokey White and Dick Gill squeezed by Bud Garvey and stayed there for second and third place. Mitchell refused to give ground to Clate for fifth. The beauty that Mitchell drives was third for 15 laps before Pokey and Gill took him. Again it was a fast-paced race with only the one restart to detract from the speedway action. The front ten were Indians Lose 12-11 In Home Run Derby WILCOX - Sam Wallace, who drove in five runs, and Jerry Bickel blasted two home runs apiece, but a ninth inning rally by the Clearfield Indians fell short and Wilcox held on for a wild 12-11 JC League win yesterday afternoon. There were 28 hits in the slugfest, including seven homers and six doubles. For Wilcox, Andy Anderson belted two home runs and Rich Polinski one to offset the circuit blows by Wallace and Bickel. Clearfield's Dan Heichel and Steve Harper and Wilcox' Andy Anderson each had three hits. It wasn't a good day for pitchers as only Bill Anderson, who put out the fire in the ninth for Wilcox, was effective. Loser Tom Kirsch and Harper split the mound duties for the Indians. Don Launer started for the hosts and Bunny Braun struggled into the ninth before Bill Anderson saved the day. Bickel's first roundtripper leading off the second inning staked Kirsch to a 1-0 edge, but Wilcox went in front for keeps in the third when Bob Feldbauer walked, Polinski doubled and Mike Shutika singled. The winners made it 4-1 in the fourth on a hit batsman, two Indian errors and Feldbauer's double. In the fifth, Clearfield scored a pair. Todd Wise walked and came around when Heichel doubled and the relay to third was off target. Barry Covey chased home Heichel with a sacrifice fly. Polinski got one of those runs back with a home run. Again, Manager Pete. Beish's Tribe pulled to within a run at 5-4 via Dan Danko's single, a balk and Wise's hit in the sixth. Wilcox then chased Kirsch as Andy Anderson homered to deep center, Feldbauer doubled and Frank Steinbach singled. Bickel saved a run when he picked Feldbauer off second, but Shutika singled off Harper and Bill Anderson reached base on an error as the seventh Wilcox run scored. A single by Harper and a home run by Wallace left the Indians down jut 7-6 in the seventh, but Andy Anderson got those two back for Wilcox by slugging another homer to dead center. The hosts closed out their scoring in the eighth on a hit by Bill Anderson, a walk, Braun's two-run double to center and Andy Anderson's single. Clearfield made it very interesting in the ninth. Heichel singled. Wilcox muffed a force attempt. Harper singled for an RBI. Wallace homered for three ribbies. Bickel homered. All of a sudden, it was 12-11. When Danko walked, Bill Anderson relieved Braun. Mike Stewart sacrificed the tying run to second, but Wise grounded out and Kirsch skied to center. The loss was the second for Clearfield, both high-scoring affairs. The Indians will try to avenge their opening 7-6 setback to Ramey Wednesday night at the Driving Park. Wilcox, bolstered by several players from the defunct Fox Township team, is off to a 2-0 start. CLEARFIELD -11 Heichel, cf Covey, 2b Beish,2B Harper, rf, If, p Wallace, 3b Bickel, c Danko, lb.

Spence got put back to the rear of the pack for a spinout on the fifth lap and then got turned around into the fence later for another lapse in racing time. Husted poured on the coals and passed everyone but Confer the final 10 laps. Clate Husted really showed the many chilled fans what his coupe Car 72 can do. Clate literally ran away with the feature, just as he had done in the heat race earlier. It was strictly "no contest" with Clate having a good quarter track distance between him and Pokey White. Bruce Taylor got walloped early in the coupe feature and manged to draw no closer than third. Last week's winner, Mark Osborne, didn't make the feature this time after running poorly in the heat. The novice gang had 21 cars in the pits and it was mayhem on the track when they all got together for a 12-lapper in winding up the night's program. After a few red flags for spinouts, crashes, loose bumpers, hoods awry and whatnot, it was Heaton fighting off the strong challenges of Frank Little and Lynn Stiver for the checkered flag and the number one prize. All in all, "it was a great night for track thrills even though the night made watching the races a bit on the cold side. Next weekend will find regular racing in all four classes on Saturday night and then a special 50 Late Model Invitational on Sunday for the Memorial Day Holiday. The turnout of late models makes the Clearfield Speedway one of the greatest tracks in this part of the country. Next week's races should prove even more exciting and advice to the wise says come early for choice seats in the grandstand or on drive-in, sit-in row. Rams Salvage Split With Rocket Club RAMEY - After DuBois' Mike Lepionka stopped Ramey 6-1 the Rams bounced back to clobber the visiting Rockets 12-5 to earn a split in yesterday afternoon's JC League doubleheader. The fireballing Lepionka held Ramey to just three hits in the opener while fanning 11 and walking just three. Two of the Ram hits came off the red-hot bats of Rob and Scott Viehdorfer, each with one double. The third safety was a single by losing hurler Jdhn Vigne, who gave up all six runs in the third frame. But the Ramey bats didn't stay cold for long as the Rams pounded a trio of DuBois pitchers for 12 hits and as many runs in the nightcap. Once again it was the hitting of the Viehdorfers that paced the Ramey attack, each coming through with a double and homer for a total of three RBI's. After starting pitcher Chuck Abbott gave DuBois a 3-0 lead in the "first the""Rams came back to bail their lefty out of trouble with a five-run outburst of their own. Rob Viehdorfer and Gary Folmar, who earned the win in relief, opened the rally with walks, followed by George Coval's run-scoring single, Vigne's RBI basehit, a two-run double by Scott Viehdorfer and Tom Janocko's run-producing two-bagger. In the second Ramey widened the gap to 8-4 with a lead-off homer by Rob Viehdorfer and Vigne's two-run roundtripper the same frame. Scott Viehdorfer added his solo shot in the fifth as Ramey went up by the score of 9-4 before turning over three more runs late in the contest. Ramey's next outing is Wednesday at Clearfield.

MOSLAK, MUNSON TOUGH Munson's Jim Moslak twirled a nifty three-hitter to down Morrisdale-Hawk Run 9-1 in a Four Leaf Clover Little League make-up scrap Saturday at Munson. Moslak whiffed seven and walked just one for his first victory of the year while Fred Vroman blasted a three-run homer in the first to provide the Munson crew with all the firepower they needed. Bobby Rusnak chipped in with a triple and a double while Danny Timko doubled, Standings: Grassflat-Drifting 6-0, Quehanna 4-1, Kylertown 4-2, Frenchville 4-2, Allport 3-2, Munson 3-3, Lanse 2-4, Bigler 1-4, Woodland 1-5, Morrisdale-Hawk Run 0-5.

The Coalport Redbirds copped their opener 32-8 over a hapless Janesville crew, McCartney ripped Glasgow-Blandburg 25-15, and Irvona upped its log to 2-0 by tripping the Coalport Bluebirds 15-10. At Janesville, the Redbirds exploded for a pair of 11-run innings in their quest for defense of the 1975 crown. Pacing their 17-hit attack were Terry McGarvey with a home run, double, and single, Mike Vesnesky with three singles, Ron Jasper with a pair of doubles and single, Mike Spangle with a double and a single, Dan Haggerty and Rick Holt with two singles each, Joe Cusick with a roundtripper, and Pat Turchick with a three-bagger Darrell Selvage's home run and double and Ken Peach-man's four-bagger topped Janesville. Dennis Ball was very much in evidence for McCartney against invading Glasgow-Blandburg as he blasted three homers and seven RBI's and twirled a three-hitter. Terry Hunt smashed a home run, double, and single, Rick Davies and Bob Swatsworth each singled thrice, Leonard Rebar doubled and singled, and Jed Duncan rapped two safeties for the winners. Meanwhile, Hockenberry plunked a homer for the losers. Dave Rowles tossed a four-hitter while Pat Leyo stroked a double and a single to lead Irvona past the Bluebirds. Bill Peterson, Rich Caskey, Rowles, and Ivan Queen all stroked two singles while John Lloyd and Dave Hamilton each bopped doubles. Brian Rydbom smacked a triple and a single for the Birds.

Tony Waslosky smashed two doubles and two singles while Jim Leskavanski ripped a home run, a triple, and a single to support Randy Wilson's 11-strikeout effort for the Phils.
