  Zoot has referred to this incident on several occasions.....happened in Poconos one night as well.....folks leaving the paddock like INS showed up..........paddock used to be right next to the grandstands, separated by a 6 foot chain link fence and a gate you could walk thru after passing a rent a cop. Got ugly quick, and fear for your life was no joke....

I remember that race. Billy Myer drove the winner and Del Insko was second. Frank Popfinger and Mike Santamaria had tickets on the exacta that I don't think they ever cashed.

Wasn't the low payoff blamed on low exacta pools?  laughing guy laughing guy laughing guy laughing guy laughing guy laughing guy laughing guy laughing guy laughing guy laughing guy laughing guy

Today .... The bettors would be ecstatic with a $42.00 payoff. How times have changed.

Also...did they have editors back then ? How many typos can there be in one small column?

FWIW, reporters were still using typewriters in 1971, press type was still set on plates and by hand.

I'm not sure if it was this race or one where Charlie Fitzpatrick wired the field with no movement but they actually broke the glass doors seperating the clubhouse and grandstand, set fire to trash cans, tried to break into the money room and needed to get the starting gate with wings open to sweep people off the track.

Previously I provided temporary links to three photo's of this 1963 incident.

Fitzpatrick was a regular in Delaware Valley by 1971. Willie Myer drove the winner and Insko was second.
