The two evenings of race-packed action, sanctioned by the American Motorcycle Association and presented by PACE Management Corp., will be highlighted by the return of Gary Nixon and Dan Haaby - the two riders who brought a crowd of over 32,000 fans to their feet last year during one of the most thrllling finishes ever recorded in professional motorcycle racing. Nixon, of Baltimore, Md., returns looking for his second straight Houston Short Track Championship. Last year Haaby appeared to have the indoor championship in the bag with two laps to go and Nixon a distant second. The hard-luck rider cornered too fast and was thrown from his machine, and Nixon held off Mert Lawwlll of San Francisco, Ca11f. to take the title. Nixon went on to score more points in national racing events than any other rider on the professional circult to become the 1968 Grand National Champion for the second year in a row. Haaby finished fifth in the final standings. MOTOCROSS by the Lompoc Slo-Pokes M.C. at Santa MariaSpeedway,Cal.AMA DIST. 35 Sanct. Info: 734-4716.
