SUPER TRACK SCENE
by LYN PHERIGO
"DAN PRESS VICTORIOUS IN SAUGUS SEASON OPENER" Nineteen seventy eight Saugus Speedway champion Dan Press, inactive most of '81 due to crashsustained injuries, began 1982 on a high note Saturday night by winning Saugus Speedway's opening night 40-lap Modified main event. In other season-a'pener action, Bill Sedgwick, Van Nuys, won the 30-lap Sportsman main, Dave Harrison, Sylmar, was victorious in the 25-lap stocker oval event and

Jim Gardella, Valencia, prevailed in the 15-lap figure eight finale.
Starting tenth in the 25-car line-up, Press moved up to fifth by the 20-lap half-way point and took over the lead from Loren Spangler, Northridge, on the 25th circuit. Spangler had held the lead from lap 15 and Steve Parrish, Santa Monica, was the pacesetter for the first 14 tours of Saugus Speedway' flat, third-mi le, paved ova I.
Spangler finished second with Canyon Country's Harry Brady, third, Ken Davis, West Covina, four Bruce Erickson, Reseda, fifth and Tom Finneran of Rialto in sixth. They all finished on the lead lar
Sedgwick took the lead on lap seven in his Sportsman victory and at that point it was Jimmy Menz Reseda, running second, Dave Phipps, Reseda, third, Bob Lyon, Newhall, fourth and Brad Miller, Newhall in fifth. Twenty three laps later, when the checkered fla_g dropped, they were still battlin in the same order and the only cars on the lead lap.
Sam Lafata, North Hollywood, led the initial 12 laps of the stocker oval main from his pole-starti.
position before Harrison took over in his winning effort. It was a typical, very-competitive stocker
main with fifteen of the 24 starters finishing on the lead lap. John Redmond, Saugus, finished second
ahead of Rona Id Main, Chatsworth and Dennis Dyer, Acton.
Gardella led all but the initial two laps in winning the figure eight main. Ken Bosse, Sylmar was
second, Bill McKnight, Northridge, third, Harrison, fourth and David Hard was fifth. Seven of th,
eleven finishers were on the winner's lap.

THE TRACK .... 11 Hey, it's flat 11 , that's the exc lamati on you I re most Iike ly to hear from someone , especially if that someone's a driver seeing Saugus Speedway's very flat, one-third mile paved oval for the very first time. There's not another similar racing facility like it anywhere and and its history i"s long and colorful. RACING PROGRAM WARM-UPS .. The first activity on the track is practice or 11 hot-lapping 11 as it is known to the racing fraternity. While not an official event it's a very important part in the makeup of a race-night at the "Super Track" . You'll
11 11
notice that many of the cars will run a few laps then go to the pits, the garage area of the speedway, return to run more laps and they may continue this pattern for some time. They are II fine tuning II a 11 the components to the track and the conditions that exist for that particular night. Some adjustments may be minor, however, sometimes major corrections, including the changing of a complete engine will take place in this practicetime slot, and it's a 11 very necessary in preparation for the competitive action later in the program. QUALIFICATIONS .....
The formal part of almost every racing program begins with the time trials (qualifications). Each car usually receives two chances to 11 race the clock 11 and the faster of the two timed laps will be the official qualifying time. Starting positions in the heat and feature races are determined by the time recorded during these laps. THE LINE-UP ........
All races here at Saugus are generally run from an 11 inverted 11 start with the slowest car in the number one or 11 pole 11 position and the faster qualified cars to the rear in the order of their qualifying times. Open-comp events such as the just-completed Saugus Spring Open and the season-ending 1133011 feature nstraight-up11 starts with the fastest cars in front. In inverted starts watch the faster cars work their way through the pack of slower cars for this is the ingredient that makes 11 short-track11 racing the great spectator sport that it is. TROPHY DASH ......
The trophy dash or 11 fast car dash 11 is for the four fastest qualifiers in each division and they race for four laps to determine a winner. In open-comp events it is usually the six fastest cars going six laps and they start in inverted order also. HEAT RACES ....
The most closely competitive cars, those with similar quafifying times, are pitted against one another in these short races of 8-laps duration. At Saugus the 24 fastest qualifiers are divided into two groups. The 13th thru 24th qualifiers go to the line in the first heat race and the twelve fastest compete in the seconc;l heat race, sometimes called the 11 fast11 heat race. Participation in these preliminary events allows drivers and crews to size up the competition before the feature events and to make changes in equipment or 11 strategy 11

SEMI-MAIN EVENTS .....
Special 11consoloation11 events for those cars not qualifying fast enough to make the 24-car starting line-up a re ca Iled semi-mains. It gives those drivers a cha nee to experience competitive driving and for many it is their first time in a 11 door-handle to door-handle race. MAIN EVENTS ...... .
The feature events and the longest on the night's racing program. The Street Stocks lead off with their customary 25-lap 11 running gun battle", then it's those spirited Sportsman for a 30-lap show-down. When the Modifieds aren't scheduled, the Sportsman main is a 40-lap affair.
The Modifieds, the premier racing machines at Saugus take to the asphalt next for their 40-lap feature event of the evening. It is a sight to behold when 24 fast, roaring Modifieds charge out of turn four and take the starter's green flag and the beginning of forty laps of short-track racing at its best.
After the oval stockers, the Sportsman and the Modifieds have finished, then, and only then the infield is cleared and the "wild and wooly 11 figure-eighter's take over for 15-laps of criss-cross madness. You can't be-lieve the near-misses and the excitement created by the thirty trips through the intersection by each car.
11X11
The manuevering and control as these expert drivers weave their way through the will keep you on your feet most of the time and the memories of their daring wi II remain long after tonight's action is over.
That's what a night's racing is all about here at the 11 Super Track", that is, unless it1s the last Saturday of the month, because on the last Saturday of each month we have a specia I added attraction. -GI ANT DESTRUCTION DERBY ....... .
Picture, if you can, forty to eighty D / D (derby demoIiti on) cars Ii ned up awaiting the starting signa I, then crashing and banging into each other until there's a winner, the only one still able to move under its own power.
Well, there you have it. What Saturday night at Saugus Speedway is all about. There's really another part to this story, that's about the fans of Saugus Speedway and we 1 11 save it for later. It's a Iong story, cause Saugus fans are the greatest ........ .

3. HOW DOES YOUR HOME MEASURE UP?
