Page Jones, one of the United States' most promising young drivers, will be 23 next Thursday. Stan Fox, a veteran of eight Indianapolis 500s and hundreds of midget races, will be 43 on July 7. Both are hospitalized with head injuries, the result of violent racing accidents. Both are showing steady but slow improvement. The diagnosis for both Jones and Fox--from family, friends and doctors alike--is one of cautious optimism.

Stan Fox, who won last year's Turkey Night Midget Grand Prix on the dirt at Ascot Park, repeated late Thursday night on the asphalt at Saugus Speedway to become the first driver in the race's 51-year history to win on both surfaces. Fox had to survive a second-chance heat to get into the finals, then came from behind in the 100-lap main event to pass Mike Fedorcak on the 73rd lap for the lead and was never headed.

Doctors said Fox, who underwent surgery to remove a blood clot, has been upgraded from critical to fair condition. "He's making some improvements clinically," said neurosurgeon Kenneth L. Renkens. "He will now follow some commands with his left hand, so it seems as if he's processing some of the information.

The euphoria that should have engulfed Jacques Villeneuve for winning Sunday's Indianapolis 500 was blunted somewhat by his thoughts of fellow driver Stan Fox. Fox, better known for his midget racing exploits than Indy cars, remained unconscious Monday in the neurosurgical unit of Methodist Hospital with brain injuries sustained in a frightening first-lap accident.

Everyone could spot Stan Fox in Gasoline Alley. He was the man riding around in a golf cart built to look like a bowling pin. Over the years, his sponsors were mainly local cafeterias, tool rental firms and, once, a bowling alley. He and Ron Hemelgarn, his car owner, designed the distinctive cart. It sat alone Tuesday outside the Hemelgarn Racing garage at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a silent monument to the man who drove it.
