Summer - 1933

        Lonnie Rose and Russell Moore, motorcycle riders from Arkansas City who were entered in the Oklahoma – Kansas championships at Winfield Tuesday, suffered scratches about the head and body bruises in two minor accidents.  Rose crashed through a fence during a race and Moore’s machine did a “flip-flop” on the track.  Neither is seriously injured.  (Webmaster’s note:  Moore also suffered two sprained ankles in this accident on the northwest turn causing him to miss two weeks work.)
