The Orange County district attorney's office has charged two teen-agers with assault and battery in connection with the beating of two adult residents of this private, gated enclave, where prosecutors say a mob of 100 to 200 youths created a mini-riot last Halloween night. Both male suspects, ages 16 and 17, live in the area. The 17-year-old is accused of beating race-car driver Rocky Moran, who suffered extensive injuries that he says may have cut short a promising sports career.

Incensed by the brutal Halloween night attack by a mob of teen-agers on two of their neighbors, more than 100 residents of this exclusive, gated community gathered Wednesday to demand better police protection and the arrests of the attackers. "I am in a cold rage," Ron Greek, co-chairman of the Coto Citizens Advisory Council, a residents' group, told the standing-room-only crowd at the Coto Valley Country Club.

There will be no fourth Andretti in Sunday's Indianapolis 500. Nor will three-time winner Johnny Rutherford get a chance to drive in his 25th race. Jeff, the youngest of the four Andrettis, was among the 33 qualifiers for a day before he was bumped late Sunday by Salt Walther, a relic who has not raced seriously since 1979. Walther had not run a lap this month better at than 204 m.p.h. until he stunned the huge Indianapolis Motor Speedway crowd by putting together four laps that averaged 210.

Rocky Moran has qualified for the last three Indianapolis 500s, but this is the first time he has had the luxury of attempting to qualify on the first day. That is because he had never been to the Speedway with a team behind him when the track opened. Consequently, his times were so slow that he was bumped from the field in 1987 and qualified 28th in both '88 and '89. This year, the situation is different for the biggest driver in Indy cars.

It's tough enough to make it in big-time auto racing without everybody thinking you're a fighter. Rocky Moran? Oh, sure, he's that pug from Poughkeepsie, isn't he? Well, no. In fact, he's a plugger from Pasadena. In a widely diversified--and largely unspectacular--career, he has been driving for 20 years, trying for that one ride, that one race that will give him instant recognition, at least in the racing community. Now, at 38, he might finally have plugged into it.

A Toyota Eagle prototype co-driven by P.J. Jones, Rocky Moran and Mark Dismore won the Rolex 24-Hour sports car endurance race at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday. The four-cylinder-powered car, known more for its sprinting ability than its endurance, started from the pole and led numerous times, battling another Dan Gurney All American Racers Eagle in the early hours, then a Jaguar and finally a Nissan. They set a relentless pace that almost ended their own chances.

Jones, Rocky Moran and Mark Dismore, regained the top spot early in the 10th hour.

It will take more than a program to keep track of the driver and car changes today when qualifying resumes at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for next Sunday's 76th Indianapolis 500. Drivers who have not been mentioned, nor taken laps on the track this month, are cropping up every hour as last-minute deals are struck in hopes of making the 33-car field.

Oriol Servia, 20th after provisional qualifying Friday for the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, raised eyebrows Saturday during the 75-minute morning practice by being fastest among 25 drivers with less than seven minutes remaining in the session. Servia ultimately finished fifth-fastest, 102.826 mph, during the practice, which he used to dial in his afternoon qualifying setup for today's CART FedEx Championship series race. But Servia's practice session was also his last hurrah.
