Springfield, Mo. (August 9, 1972) – Dick Sutcliffe of Greenwood, Mo., wheeled his steel blue Chevy sprinter to victory in the 25-lap International Motor Contest Association sprint car feature at the Ozark Empire Fair on Wednesday night.

Sutcliffe moved quickly from his third row starting position to the front and was never seriously challenged to the finish.

The real battle was for second place with Tennessee’s Chuck Amati, IMCA point leader Ray Lee Goodwin of Kansas City and David Ross of Jetmore, Kan., finishing that order.
