By this time, we had lost the position of riders as some were starting to go out, others gaining a lap on the field-and with us it was just a succession of numbers going by. We, however, had a pretty good picture as the same riders were coming around in about the same position and we figured that Miller, Hillbish, Campanale and Witinski were up among the leaders. Hillbish and some other rider had a bad fall, just going onto the beach and that put Lester back to some extent. At the 48th lap, Tony Miller had that bad accident and with pit stops and what have you the eventwas working itself in to a battle between Campanale, Hillbish, Tommy Hayes, who by the way was one of the real surprises of the day, Grif Kathcart and Billie Armstrong who was trying to emulate his illustrious father. These boys were going by us as No. 25, Campanale; No. 6, Hillbish; No. 107, Tommy Hayes; No. 77. Kathcart and No. 103, Billie Armstrong. There were other numbers sandwiched in between, but those were the relative positions, and so on until the end of the race.
