Ind., placed fourth, while fifth
place went to Gary Bettenhausen
of Tinley Park, Ill.
Johncock, who has driven just
about every type of racing car,
inherited a lead he was never
to surrender after 1970-1971 win-
ner Al Unser suffered engine
problems on .the 70th trip around
the battered old course.
By that time, however, most
of the pre-race favorites either
had left the race or were gimping
around with faulty machines.
The race was flagged ~to an
abrupt halt on the 59th lap when
Savage, a 26-year-old from Santa
Ana, Calif., lost control of his
Eagle-Offy and slammed against
the two retaining walls coming
out of the Speedway's fourth
The car broke in half, with
the front part exploding into a
ball of flame. Savage, the vic-
tim of a near-fatal crash in Cal-
ifornia two years ago, was hos-
pitalized in critical condition with
a broken left arm and left leg,
burns on the face, arms and
hands and possille corneal dan-

Moments after the crash, a
fire truck heading the wrong way
down pit road toward the acci-
dent ran squarely into 22-year-
old Armondo Teran of Culver
City, Calif. Teran died just over
an hour later of multiple injuries.
It was the second death in a
tragic month of May at In-
Art Polland, a 46-year-old
veteran from Medford, Ore., lost
control of, his racer and crashed
in flames during a pre-qualifying
warmup session May 12. He was
the 34th driver to lose his life
since the Speedway was opened
A crowd of only about 20,000,
compared to 350,4300 Monday,
watched Johncock win the 50
on his ninth attempt.
The official results will not be
posted until this morning, but
the scoreboard listed the sixth
throigh 10th place finishers as
Steve Krisiloff, rookie Lee Kunz-
man, John Martin, pole-position
starter Johnny Rutherford, and
The Savage accident was the
third maior one in three days,
David "Salt" Walther, 25, of
Dayton, Ohio, was badly burned
in a multi-car crash in so aborted
start of the race Monday, its
original running date.
Two other drivers were slightly
injured and nine spectators hos-
pitalized from flames that seared
them when Walther's machine
climbed the fence along the front
Johncock had qualified in 11th
position at a speed of 192.555
m.p.h., and had been listed
among the favorites despite much
higher time trial speeds of some
of the other drivers.
Star forward Dave DeBusschere of the world champion New
York Knicks was named vice president and general manager of
the New York Nets of the ABA. DeBusschere, the f9-mer Univer-
sity of Detroit and Detroit Piston player will assume his new
role after the 1973-74 NBA season with the Knicks. DeBusschere
will earn a reported $75,000 a year with the ABA club.
Tom is terrific
In case you missed it, Tom Seaver of the Mets had a pretty
good night for himself Tuesday. In New York's 5-2 victory over
the San Francisco Giants, Seaver merely struck otit 16 batters,
pitched a three-hitter, belted a homer and collected a bunt single
in the Mets' four-run ninth inning rally. In some statistical notes,
Giant Bobby Bonds has already scored 50 runs and shortstop
Roger Metzger of the Astros has 8 triples-twice *as many as
anyone in the majors.
Howe, Howe and Howe?
Dave DeBusschere deserting the NBA-that's almost as bad
as Gordie Howe, the immortal Detroit Red Wings' No. 9 con-
sidering a return to hockey in the rival WHA with the Houston
Aeros. Howe revealed late Tuesday night that he is considering
going back on the ice with his sons, Mark, 18, and Marty, 19,
who were both drafted by the Aeros recently.

Winner of the three-day showdown gains a berth in the Col-
lege World Series at Omaha the following week.
The Tigers continue the first leg of their long road trip
with a makeup of Tuesday's washed out encounter with
the Chicago White Sox. By the grace of some superior being,
the Tigers will miss the flailing knucklers of Wilbur Wood
