FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE MAY 14, 1995 FORT COLLINS, COLORADO
TEMPERO AND TURCO HEAT UP CALIFORNIA DESERT
Tony Turco, Hamilton, Ohio, starting from the second row proved to be Bill Tempero's chief challenger as Tempero went on to win the opening round of the American IndyCar Series Sunday race at Willow Springs International Raceway, Rosamond, California. Tempero's win came from the outside of the front row that he shared with Ken Petrie, Parker, Colorado.
Petrie in the Precision Glassblowing March Chevrolet was on the pole with a 1.11.070 time, breaking the A.I.S track record of 1.12.272 set by Tempero in last season's final race. Petrie's recordbreaking time came during Sunday's qualifications as Saturday's schedule was postponed because of heavy rains.
At the green flag Tempero led into the first turn with Petrie and Turco in pursuit, however, Petrie's pursuit was short lived as he came into the pits after losing fifth gear in turn eight. As he rejoined the race at the back of the pack, he experience the loss of yet two more gears; and after five laps, he retired the car.
With Petrie suffering gearbox woes, Turco took over second with David Morgan-Busby, Beverly Hills, California, in third position, Jay Hansen, Fairfax, California, in fourth and rookie Curtis Spicer, in fifth. Spicer driving a car prepared by Bill Tempero Racing comes to the series from Vancouver, B.C.
Turco, pushing Tempero on every lap, took the lead on lap eleven, and in the next twelve laps Turco and Tempero changed the lead four times as the race became more heated. On the sweeping number nine turn Tempero took the lead for the final time as he slipped under Turco.
Turco in a post race interview acknowledged the win to Tempero's prudent use of rubber and Tempero's experience in the turn nine pass. "I used up my tires in the early part of the race and had nothing left for the final laps," stated Turco.
In addition two Spicer, California, rookies Gerry Glenn and Jim Webb, and Vail, Colorado's, Jacques Lazier showed themselves as up-and-coming drivers.
The A.I.S. moves on to Suntana Raceway, Springville, Utah, May 27 for the second round of competition as Turco challenges Tempero for the points lead in the A.I.S. driver championships.
