"Hi there, everybody, and welcome to another exciting season of Phillies baseball. I'm Mike Fowler along with Larry Phillips bringing you today's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Today's game is brought to you buy Budweiser - let's all pop the top on an ice cold Bud." Phillips: "Now for the Old Spice weather report. It's a balmy 70 de grees with the wind blowing out to right. Remember, if you can't get the girls with Old Spice, you must be dog ugly." Fowler: "First up for the Phillies is centerfielder Steve Wilson, who is taking over for the injured Lenny Dykstra. Orel Hershiser is on the mound for the Dodgers, and his first pitch to Wilson is a ball, high and outside. That pitch was brought to you by Camel cigarettes because why shouldn't you smoke? After all, you could be hit by a truck to morrow." Phillips: "Orel is quite a story, playing so well after having career- threatening arm surgery just two years ago. His paternal grandmoth er's maiden name was Peterson, as was his doctor's. Orel Hershiser's family history was brought to you by Advil. If Advil can't cure your headache, then it has to be a brain tumor." ')[, i orlw Fowler: "The next pitch from Hershiser is fouled back by Wilson. That foul ball is brought to you by Disc Jockey. Look for the new al bum from New Kids On the Block, 'Dancing the Lambada with Satan', on sale now." Phillips: "Steve this year had to get seme bigger deats, It seems that His feet grew seme ever the winter, 5©e Wlnder/Pege 8 DAVID WINDER Sports Writer Waltrip takes Shootout NASCAR veteran outduels Schrader for win at TWS DARRIN HILL/The Battalion Darrell Waltrip (17) drives his Chevy Lumina into the lead Earnhardt. Waltrip averaged over 135 miles per hour Sunday ahead of a paclc including fellow NASCAR veteran Dale in his win at the Texas Wand Speedway. By MICHAEL PLUMER The Battalion Sunday's ARCA-NASCAR Winston West Shootout at Texas World Speedway was a one-man show. Darrell Waltrip blew away the field, registering a full lap victory over second place finisher Ken Schrader, who was fol lowed by Tim Steele, Hershel McGriff and Dale Earnhardt. Waltrip averaged 135.505 miles per hour in taking the checkered flag. Six caution flags slowed the overall pace of the race but that did not stop Wal trip from turning laps at over 188 mph. "This was a big win for the team," Waltrip said. "I just pray we can win something else the rest of the season." Waltrip was doubly pleased with the results because of his efforts in the Win ston Cup race on Saturday. Waltrip, along with Schrader and Earnhardt, com peted in the Motorcraft 500 in Atlanta, where Waltrip was forced out early in the race due to camshaft problems. "Our car owner is much happier with the results," Waltrip said. "Some days, like Saturday, are like that. Things just don't go our way all the time, but in this race they did." Since the three drivers were in Atlanta, they were not able to qualify their cars for the race, Substitute drivers qualified the ears, whieh eaused the trie t© have te start from the rear ©f the paek, Earnhardt, starting in 40th niaee, passed 10 ears ©n the first lap, and by the 27th lap it became apparent that the race would belong to the three racers making a rare appearance on the Winston West circuit. Waltrip took the lead or) lap 28, a lead which he would never relinquish, with Earnhardt in second place. Schrader joined the leaders on lap 50, moving into third place after overcoming gear shift problems. Schrader said he was pleased with the results. "This is a beautiful track and I was happy with the way we ran," he said. "We had problems early in the race, but we were able to overcome those and have a good finish." Waltrip and Schrader pulled away from the field in the latter stages of the race, enjoying an almost 12-second ad vantage over the third place car of Mc Griff. Waltrip said that he was happy to see Schrader in his rear-view mirror. "I felt good he was back there because he gave the needed push that kept us out in front during the race," Waltrip said. "For a while, I actually thought he want ed to do some racing. That was kind of scary." Schrader said that although he could not catch up to Waltrip, it was not from a lack of trying. "I knew there was no w^y anybody was going t© eateh Darrell, @© we deeided t© wait until the end t© make a move/' fghrader said, "But it kind ©f baekfired, iehrader ran out ©f gas ©n the final lap, which allowed Waltrip to have even more breathing-room at the finish. "We gambled but it just didn't work out," Schrader said. "Once I ran out of gas, I coasted with the momentum I had and then fired up the car again after I came to an almost complete stop. "I must have done that twice, but I was still able to finish second. That is nice." The first part of the race belonged to the Winston West regulars as Loy Allen and polesitter Page Jones attempted to run away from the field in the first 25 laps. But caution flags slowed them down and allowed Waltrip and Earn hardt an opportunity to climb back into contention. Jones was in contention until lap 34 when he spun out and hit the wall, end ing his day. "The end was disappointing, but we were running good until I had the acci dent," Jones said. "I am not sure what happened, but we will be back." •, Sunday's race marked the first time regular Winston Cup drivers competed at the track since 1981. The track had fallen into disrepair because of the former own- er's financial problems, but has blos somed under new ownership. "There was a great crowd, which is very encouraging,' v Waltrip said. "The fa cilities here are great, but the best thing is the track is in the Texas market, "All the ingredients are here fer this t© be a regular step ©n the NAICAR circuit, but we are driven by scheduling, H©p@= fully gemething can be werked ©ut."
