The sixth and final leg of the North American Amateur Drivers Association Trotting Series was presented at Yonkers Raceway on Thursday April 17 and when the non-wagering contests were finished Bobby Krivelin and Dave Yarock emerged victorious in their respective splits; Krivelin with Current Crisis in 1:59.1 and Yarock with Nowerland Nathan in 2:00.1.

Krivelin's win was his third in the trotting events and for Yarock it was his second.

In his $6000 contest Krivelin settled his trotter in along the pylons in the early going and then used the overland route to wear down the leader Get Packin (Bob Hechkoff) as the field rounded the final turn. From there Current Crisis then rolled on to a four-length victory over Northemedo Wine Guy, driven by Tony Verruso. Get Packin held on for third money.

Yarock's victory was somewhat similar to Krivelin's in that he raced along the pylons until the field headed for the half and with a move to the outside Nowerland Nathan and Yarock wore down the pace-setter Whatnblazes (Dave Offenberg) and gained command by the three quarters. Then, as the field headed for home only Nowerland Nathan's margin of victory was in doubt as Yarock's trotter finished three lengths ahead of Offenberg's.

Krivelin was the series point champion with 47 while Yarock was second best with 36.

Trailing Krivelin and Yarock in points and now eligible to the final are; David Glasser (30), Bob Hechkoff (29), Joe Faraldo (26), Tony Verruso (25); Bob Davis (23) and Paul MInore (20).

However, should any of the top eight in points fail to enter the final then the remaining driver(s) with the highest point totals---Dave Offenberg (18), Monica Banca (17) and Alan Charles (10)--- are next in line to participate.

The $14,000 NAADA Trotting Series Final will be contest on Thursday, April 24 again at Yonkers Raceway.
