    Midget Racing:
WarlsNea?
. ew Title Threat
I Here Wednesday
A ml war and not on the
friendly sportsmanlike scale is
brewing among the Northwest's
midget racing drivers as they have
at it in their roaring runt pro
a-rams In Portland. Seattle. Tac
oma, Spokane and, starting Wed
nesday night Salem.
An4 the worst part of it is,
when the conflagration busts loose
one of these niphts. it likely will
be in the pits instead of on the
track where the customers can
have a full noek. '
The expected brawl has" "been
.nurifd by the driving tricks of
Bob Gregg and Lou Sherman, two
of the topnotchers among the pilots
, In Oregon and Washington. This
year both Gregg and Sherman are
' driving for the same car owner,
Harold Smith of Portland. Gregg
drives Smith's OffenhauscT special
-and Sherman, current leader of the
Midget Association driving stand
ings even though he has yet to
win a Class A main event,' pilots
Smith's Ford V-8. Consquently,
they are actually a 'driving team.
The pranks Gregg and Sherman
have been pulling are the lighted
fuss for the upcoming explosion.
Gregg isn't the type of driver who
"makes his own holes to go
through" in passtn other cars.
Bumping them out of the way, in
other words. But Sherman is.
So many times this season in the
Jantn Beach-faces at Portland
Srurman has deliberately bumped
th opposition to one side, therein
mSkin? the "holes" for Greeg to
Tip throueh to his many wins.
The trick was worked last
Thursday night in Portland, on
--fie new California driver Cal Ni
day who Promoter Jimmy Ryan
considers "the smoothest and one
of the very best midget racing
drivers I've ever seen." Sherman
and Gregg gave the surprised Ki-
dav the "or one-two puncn eariv
In the race. But Niday recovered,
became quite irked ard was tear
ing pell-mell around the track
making up his losswhen hi motor
conked out. At that time he was
In Mrrnd place tnd going strong.
"Dirty driving" is the name the
other drivers have hung on the
Greig-Sherman stuff. There is
'quite a difference between the
dirtv stuff and the "hard driving"
. which many cf the pilots are cap
able of. And .one gent. Gordy
' Yonnijjitrom. has warned Sherman
and Gregg that if ever he is made
victim of siu-h goings on while
In action, he'il mash a few no?e.

thu season in Portland, after be
. Ing rammed through the crash rail,
lit out on the dead run for the
pits to wait until his tormentor
r came in. But the sioliT got tere
too, and kept a fight from break
In n open.
f Three or four other drivers are
Involved In the beef also.' and
Ryan expects the whole thing to
mushroom soon. It my happen
here in Salem Wednesday night
during the 1049 Inaugural, or It
may coma at Portland, Tacoma,
etc. But it's coming for sure and
soon.
Ryan reports that between 20
and 25. and perhaps even more
cars will take part in the Wednes
day opener. Niday will be here
in hii No. 69 Offy. Niday in
1947 and 1948 was the Australian
champion at Sidney and Brisbane
and in 1948 also won the National
S-A title at B'comsberg, Pa. He

The Portland Beavers, who ap

in games wit'i such second division
