Brad Oxley is a thin young man from San Clemente who looks like anything but a speedway motorcycle racer. Still, his past, present and future are locked into the squirrel-cage sport of two-wheel riders who spin crazily around tiny dirt tracks, four abreast, at speeds up to 40 m.p.h.--without brakes. Oxley is 6-1 1/2 in a sport designed for riders 5-5 to 5-9. "I'm 6-2 with my racing boots on," the ebullient blond competitor hastens to add.

Brad Oxley is the promoter of Speedway International Inc., and the weekly events at the Orange County Fairgrounds are legendary, dating back to the 1960s when his father ran the show. Saturday night, San Juan Capistrano's Oxley was the show. Oxley won the 31st U.S. National speedway championship, largely because he knows this one-eighth-mile dirt oval like the back of his hand.

If Riverside's Gary Hicks didn't deserve the Jack Milne Cup title Saturday for winning speedway's main event, he certainly deserved it for his sporting nature. Hicks, grand-nephew of Jack Milne, a speedway pioneer and the 1937 world champion, had his choice of starting gates in a semifinal heat. He and San Bernardino's Charlie Venegas were tied through three rounds with 11 points (out of a possible 12). Hicks had gate choice because he wears a lower jersey number (3) than Venegas (43).

For Bobby Ott, speedway motorcycle racing's self-proclaimed showman, tonight's return to the Orange County Fairgrounds after a three-year absence is more than a homecoming. Ott, nicknamed "Showtime Bobby Ott" because of his daring and crowd-pleasing style of riding, returns from the British Speedway League, where he is the top rider for the Wimbledon Dons. He has appeared only four times on the tiny, 190-yard oval at Costa Mesa in the past four years.
