Speeding about the extremely short course, Kenyon (Bul) was continuously pressured by an error-awaiting Jim Odom (Bul). The error never came performance. Yamaha power Keith Mashburn took ttiird behind the Northern CJlifornia and Kenyon pocketed $2740 for his pair, but had his touch at glory earlier when he set fastest qualifying time. A sell-out and turn-away crowd of 17,250 in this city since WW II and not a one was denied excitement. Barry Briggs, famed witnessed the first motorcycle races other forms of racing, nearly brought the Gardens down from the ovation he speedway star now attempting received in his heat race. After falling, Briggs made a valient attempt to work back up to transfer but barely missed; the crowd, however, loved it. Bill Goodman (Bul) took 4th, Mike Yern (Bul) 5th, Jim Fortune 6th, Dave Aldana (BSA) 7th, Darryl Hurst (ass) 8th, Mark Brelsford (H-D) 9th and Dave Hansen (Bul) 10th. Complete results next week.
