New York, Jan. 14—(UP)—Wild Bill Holmes of Brewster, N. Y., won top honors here yesterday in the midget auto races, which furnished one big smash-up.
Holmes won the Australian pursuit race and the feature 20-lap event and set a new track record for eight laps.
Sig Haugdahl, Daytona Beach, Fla., veteran of dirt tracks, and until last night, winner of all events entered as a midget auto driver, was put out of the running when he spun on a turn and was smashed against the fence by George Villa. Haugdahl escaped injury.
