A miscount of laps in hvo races, including the mile, mar- red the program. KeLno grabbed Ihe lead on the second lap at the Spoils Arena, opened a 30-yard edge oti liyun and was still 20 yards in front when the gun sounded marking one lap to go. But there were two laps left.

He not even meet ref- eree Dick Bank knew of the rule. "To be fair we should split the prize money said Bert Nelson of the ITA. Edmonson was furious. "I knew about the he said.
