Malo-Cross Club - 213-447-8342 THE FINISH LINE By B OXY BOCKWooD The long season fo r national racing on a record extended circuit begins next week with the fi rst half-mile gOing at Atlanta, Ga. Joining the cir c uit that began last Febr uary an d will not e nd until the middle of October are such places a t Atlanta, Richmond, va ., Detroit, Mich., Heidleberg, Pa .; Llncoln, Nebr. , Sedalia, Mo., and Salinas, Call!. These are all ne w names on the national trail, s o me have been on the list befor e and s ome are fi r s t - ti me r s . There may be a t l east one or two mo re added before the s eason comes to an en d. Atlan ta, Ri ch mond, Detroit and Salinas are half-mile events, Llncoin is a TT race that was added afte r the na tional co m mi ttee meeting last Nov e mbe r , Sedalia is a mile di r t track event and the race at Heidleberg Is billed as a "MiniRoa d Ra ce". A "Mini-Road Race," believe It or not , is a race held in an d around a half mile paved oval. ThIs race is " not limited to s mall bikes of the 250Cc nature but also the bigger 500's and 750's, as well. Perhaps the ne xt move will be to hold a " Mini-Short Track" race in side a phone booth or maybe a dirt oval cons tructed in some parking lot . The half- m lle r s get the nod this year with no less than ten half mil e events be ing slated for the national points. The r oad races still r eceive "many mor e points for the win but the oval aces no w have much more of a chance than th e y did a co upl e of years ago. Looking at the schedule as It comes up a t this time a wes te r n area r ide r could leave these parts and rac e in the east until the Portland mile event in MidJ uly . There are nationals every weekend with the exception of two from next SUnday on through July 14th, which is Portland time. That's a lot of traveling and a long ti me to be go ne for not too great a sum of money - even 1! one r ider was to win them all. I! the early season nationals produce a multitude of winners with no one rider dominating, as the case a fewyearsback in the Leonard-Resweber era, then i t will be possible for some of the top riders to pass up many of the events IUld still come on strong m idway in the season OIl a winning basis. After two nationals, and considering the events coming up in the next two months, Cal Rayborn, Gary Nixon, Jimmy Odom and Gene Romero are the four riders sitting in the drivers' seat for a good shot at the national point lead as time goes by. '!bese four more or less have an tnstde shot or an early start on the run for the toP of the list. On the other hand. Bart Markel has many half-miles and mUe events comIng up that could slant things in his favor. . Markel has won twenty national events, all on dirt and the majority of them have been on ovals. He bas three times W'OO the number one spot- without scoring a point in the Olytona 200 that pays the most points on the entire circuit. NIxon and Markel are once again the two challengers _to the many western riders that could take It all. '!be Midwest and the East have not come up with any new potential national winners in the last five or six years so once again Gary and Bart will carry the load in the East vs West na1lonal match. The national TI at Lincoln, Nebraska was quietly added to the schedule after the annual meeting and many r iders and sponsors may have m1ssed thIs addition. ThIs will be a Sunday afternoon race on Aug. 11th with a short track at the same locat1on the night befor e , on the 10th. Northern Calif. Is at thts time trying to obtain a m ile track national sanction for the Santa Rosa oval that was run last year. The track has been rebuilt and the outs1d e revamped and now nnly the final okay from AMA headquarters Is awafted, Right now oval r iders have the first half-mile of the s ea s on coming up atSan Jose this Sunda y after noon and the road racers can look forward to an event at Carlsbad Raceway on Sunday the 28th. 0> 1C' ::e
