apologies go to John and _congrats o n great sho ts THE PYLE DRIVER CHARITY OFF ROAD RACE ho nest that is the name is a new entry into the summer sweepstakes for the short course driver entry A ctually the Pyle Driver is a bona fide charity event with proceeds going to the R M Pyle Boy s Camp in southern California The d ate is August 18th and the location is Mesa M arin Raceway in Bakersfield CA It o ught to be a warm o ne both in competition and climate However the racing happens in the cool o f the evening Entry is open to C lasses I 5 7 and 10 and also to 250 cc 3 wheelers Backed by Pipe Line Trucking Inc the charity eyent is being directed by Marty Tripes with help fro m Charlie and Linda Engelhart of Baja Cross fame There is a fat guaranteed purse and all the trimmings and the organizers expect a big turn o ut for the benefit race AMSA AT FRESNO has been moved back a week to June 23 and 24 and this will keep southland short course racers hopping since the Pomona stadium race is o n Saturday June 23 The Fresno Fairgrounds affair will be a three ring circus sponsored by Coors Jim W ebb plans to run ATCs and motorcycles in a two hour Grand Prix and o n Sunday he will stage the six ho ur enduro fo r cars on an elo ngated course that will use the infield as well as the horse track at the Fairgrounds Webb states that he expects to have some desert cars in the entry rather than the pure bred stadium racers known to be a bit fragile o n the long haul According to Webb the course will be plenty rough enough to encourage the use of extra protective pfates that do add weight to a race car W ebb estimates it will be the desert cars that will still be running and winning at the end of six hours For this event the pits will be in the infield so no one will need to cross the track during the event It sounds like a different idea for the west coast short course drivers RALLY FLASH The third round in th e SCCA Pro Rally Series the M ichigan Internatio nal Rall y happened the same weekend as the Mint 400 The news is th at Jo hn Buffum collected another first overall in his Audi Quattro but Kiwi Rod Millen finished second in his 4 X D Mazda RX 7 Millen still leads the series after three of the nine events but by just ten points After nearly 400 miles on the road Canadian Walter Boyce won the Standard Production title by just five seconds driving a Volkswagen Rabbit GTI Another Kiwi Richard Kelsey took the victory in the G T Producti m class driving a more nbrmal 2 WD Mazda RX 7 Read the full report on the Michigan Rally in DUSTY TIMES next month I had occasion last week to phone the C ustoms Office in Windsor Canada to ask about the bonding that will be required for all U S racers bringing their cars into Canada It is my understanding that there will be no bond posted by SCORE Canada therefore each racer will have to post his own bond with the Canadian government I talked with Ms DePaauw who stated that you will be required to post a 500 Canadian funds bond with the customs officials the first time that you go into Canada If you are going to be racing there more than once you can indicate that you want the bond to be for a period of six 6 months rather than just for the weekend You will be given a receipt which you will show each time that you cross the border You ill not have to stop each time to go_ through all the paper work although the authorities may ask you to stop so that they can inspect what you are taking into the country Ms DePaauw also stated that you should h ave an itemized list with a copy for yourself of all of your too ls and all spare parts for the car th at you are taking into the country When you are leaving the country for the last time at the end of your racing FROM SCORE

May 14 we were advised that the ranchers and Mexican government were unable to agree in their negotiations SCORE concluded that holding an off road race at this time in Baja California would be contrary to their concern tor the_safety of the competitors SCORE has been guaranteed by both Mexican government officials and the ranchers that agreement will be reached well in advance of the SCORE

By Jean Calvin Congratulations to the big winners first overall for the second year in a row Jim and Billy Wright in the sleek bodied Class 2 Raceco took the lead midway and never put a wheel wrong during the r ace Over the 17 year history of the now know that most of the fun big and bad Mint 400 the event running on the northern section has faced many challenges of the traditional Mint 400 overcome many problems and course is on Indian Land with the exception of the gas Although the Mint Hotel has crisis year in 1974 the Mint 400 paid generously for the use of the had rolled every spring since Indian Land each year in this 1968 The problems this year Orwellian 1984 the Indians were many affecting the decided to triple their fee for the organizers more than the actual 30 odd miles of race course competitors at least until the asking for so the rumo_rs say a racers sampled the course But cool 15 grand Even in Las Vegas Andrew M Zorne _yice that sum is too husky for the President and General Man ager service provided so the course of the Mint Hotel and his was redone staying more Director of Public Relations K J southerly and actually making Howe got it all handled nicely two trips north and two trips The traditions of the Mint 400 south on each lap It was a bit over 100 miles and it seemed were carried on this year The first glitch in the usually even longer than that smooth running pre race activity The good news was the course was a problem with the Moapa was mostly on public land and Band of the Paiute Indians If the bad news is that the course folks didn t know before they crossed the dreaded dry lake not Class 6 sedans had a rough time in the terrain but Larry Schwacofer and Sid Spradling got the job done winning with the fast three lap time Page 10 used for several years and plowed through one silt bed after another Sadly most of the fun roads were gone due to the logistics of connecting one legal trail to the next to make the course But the route was truly off road with all the trimmings with a far too generous percentage of the miles really filthy running With the course sorted out in early spring the next axe that fell was the hotel workers strike against most of the Las Vegas casinos in early April While it doesn t seem to be a big blockage for an off road race the unions could have made a problem out of the situation The strike dragged on some hotels settled before race date but all the downtown casinos were still struck by race date This raised a concern about the traditional festival on Fremont Street that racers calL the contingency and tech insp e ction Some folks thought the strikers might make trouble with the crowds of people in the street The Mint officials tentatively rescheduled the inspection at the Speedrome start finish area but reaction was swift The racers wanted the glamour of the colorful parade in downtown Las Vegas and of course the neighboring casinos wanted the action from the masses of people Tech day is always a big day for the gambling halls on Fremont Street The Mint 400 leaders took the bull by the horns hired regiments of extra security people and put the inspection on Friday back on Fremont Street Police warned Thursday of a Mike and Pat Falkosky took almost all of the 18 hours to finish but finish they did in the Toyota and they won the Class 7S title as well June 1984 Photos Trackside Photo Enterprises possible sit in action on the street from the unions on strike but it did not happen Perhaps the union organizers made a scouting trip to the area on Friday saw the massed assembly of cars and hefty sized off road racers plus reams of uniformed police and thought prudence might be the better part of valor They obviously took the union action to another part o f town if at all Along with the lack of trouble from the unions during the race a bright notion is that the Mint 400 race will roll on no matter what difficulties beset the host city of Las Vegas or its individual establishments Race day was bright and sunny with only a breeze instead of the hoped for wind to blow the hanging dust away When the last armband had been snapped on a Judy Smith hops down the road in the Jean Calvin Funco and with aid from John Howard the old buggy finished seventh in Class 1 1600 Dusty Times

Gale Pike and Steve Hummel had a tr ouble free run in the antique Ford Bronco and Pike was happy to nail second place among the Class 3s racing wrist there were 399 entries of which 381 actually started the event While it has been some years since the Mint 400 has fallen below 400 starters the nasty course scared some away And believe it or not we heard that a couple dozen would be racers would not cross the picket lines in front of the Mint Hotel to register for the race Between the strike and the bad press out of Vegas o n the strike and the news of the course change the entry was more than gratifying and the traffic on course was plenty heavy for anyone in the ranks Class 2 was first away and for sure they have proven to be the fastest of all classes in the desert In fact defending overall champs Jim and Billy Wright were one team touted to win overall again this year despite starting 53rd off the line in the 56 car field in Class 2 The racing was tight and busy on the first round with four cars all under a minute blanket It began to sort out after two laps in fact only 22 two seaters managed to go two laps of the tough course At this point Las Vegas drivers Brian Collins and Kenny Cox had their Raceco in a slim lead closely tagged by the new Class 2 Raceco of Jim Sumners with his nephew Craig Renfro riding shotgun as usual Sumners was a mere 1 minutes behind Just another two minutes back were the defending champs and the Wrights had about eight minutes in hahd over the next bunch led by Cameron Thieriot and Greg Lewin in a Funco The Class 2 ranks shrank again as only 17 finished three rounds Now it was Jim Sumners with the slim lead 2 minutes over Collins Cox but ahead of both with a strong dash through the pack was Jim Wright with seven minutes margin in class and he was the overall leader as well Thieriot and Lewin were in fourth two minutes back of Collins Cox and at this point nobody in Class 2 could challenge the leaders on time Sumners lost the trans on the final lap ending his hopes for a good Class 2 finish Jim Wright turned a remarkable 2 21 54 final lap to roar into the Speedrome first in Class 2 and first overall for the second year in a row It was the first time since the glory days of Malcolm Smith and Bud Feldkamp and the Blue Bullet that a team had won back to back overall at the Mint 400 The Wrights said later that they cooled it on the first half sized up the competition at the pit stop and then went after the victory Wright s 2 10 first lap hardly seems like a cool one however The father and son both said the DustyTim s It was a popular victory and Tim and Chris Casey led Class 4 from flag to flag had no re trouble en route to the top spot in the Jeep Las Vegas racers Brian Collins and Kenny Cox plow up a little dust In their Raceco en route to a fine second in Class 2 third overall course was really tough but they had no down time on the race track Brian Collins and Kenny Cox hung tough for second in Class 2 third overall about 17 minutes behind the winners Only another 2 minutes back Cam Thieriot and Greg Lewin had a trouble free race to third in class fourth overall in the Funco 6 50 Club Champion ih 1982 Clark Gillies with Steve Ooley codriving hustled home fourth in class in a Raceco Only 13 in Class 2 finished the rugged run and the last three were six or more hours behind the winner Class 1 all 41 of them were the second group off the line two every 30 seconds in formation The first lap was a barn burner and 12 failed to come around including most of the Arizona heavy hitters Larry Ragland Bob Shepard and Glenn Evans Out front by inches after the first go was the team of Tom Ebberts and Mike Julson in a Jimco just half a minute ahead of Jack Johnson Chenowth Magnum Tom Koch Mark Broneau had their Raceco just another minute back then came a few minutes gap to the next group led by Kenny Krumme in a Funco Midway the field was down to 17 and Ebberts Julson still led Jack Johnson now by about three minutes Krumme was just four minutes off Johnson s stern and Mike Lund Chenowth Magnum was seven more minutes back Koch Broneau lost the engine but got to the Checker pit and installed an 1835 engine from the prerunner The entire second lap was five hours and change with some really swift pit work Other contenders slowed with sundry probtems often flat tires and after three laps the class was down to ten with both Vegas stormers Johnson and Krumme among the missing Heading into the final round the fight for the lead was a near tie on total time Mike Lund headed off with a mere 22 second lead over Ebberts Julson and nobody else was within an hour r The Mint course was tdo much for the 1200 cc Baja Bugs but Dave Girdner and Lee Perfect got in a good three laps for the Class 11 win Mike Lund is flying high this year In the Magnum and he not only won Class 1 at the Mint 400 but his quick time was good for 2nd overall of the two leaders Sadly the Jimco vanished into the dust on the final round and Mike Lund zoomed home to win Class 1 by over three hours and take second Congratulations to Larry Ragland BARSTOW 250 1st Overall SAN FELIPE 250

The Baja Cross organizers did a fine job conducting the event but seemed to overlook one problem bathrooms The nice weather drew a few thousand fans out sipping Budweisers purchased from the _e vent sponsor Straub Distributing Co of Orange CA All the beer sipping made the lines really long at the portable convenience stations and hopefully all organizers will realize the need for a few more portables located around the track Saddleback Park is an ideal short course setting in that it offers plenty of rough stuff to keep the racers busy and the l yout offers spectators a ood view of the track Add to this the fact that it draws southern California s hottest short course racers and it makes an enjoyable afternoon for everyone Page _20 Class 1 2 1600 offered some Castle s coat tail and

Gordon stayed close enough to read the small print on Gillman s air cleaner but couldn t manage to get around and had to settle for second The second moto went like the 1 2 1600 bash in that no one

money went to Dan Fisk and Bob Gordon placed third over all Ron Wachter was fourth in a Funco and Dave Greiner finished fifth for the day Class 10 had plenty of competition since 19 cars lined up for the start Everyone knew one of the two front row starters would probably win since Mike Gillman and Jerry Whelchel were placed one and two on the front row But they knew it wouldn t be a picnic with 17 other cars behind them especially having Marty Tripes and Ron Carter directly behind them Greg George and Mike Bell were on the third row to complicate matters even more When the green flag went up the charge into turn 1 looked deadly but all 19 cars found a way through without mishap It was no surprise to see Mike Gillman lead the pack around with Jerry Whelchel so close many thought he was Gillman s shadow The rest of the pack had some difficulty around the sweeper now known as Bridgestone corner and this put a few seconds between them and the leaders On the third lap Whelchel overshot one of the berms and had to fumble for the right gear long enough that Gillman Scott Gillman and Bob Gordon tangled in the first moto Gordon was pushed into the safety tires lost his right front wheel and Gillman got a penalty for the action from the rough driving committee but Scott won Class 1 for _the day enjoyed a comfortable lead Once o n the track again Whelchel made up time and began to press Gillman again until the las t lap when his right rear tire went flat so Whelchel ended up second Marty Tripes held onto third by fending off Ron Carter until the last lap and Carter dove inside and came out in third while Tripes finished fourth Greg George tried to take advantage of Tripes mishap but couldn t get around and had to settle for fifth Mike Bell drove consistently to finish sixth in front of Ken Kazarian Brad Castle came across eighth ahead of Vince Tjelmeland and Mike Burmeister The second moto action was delayed a few minutes for Mike Withers due to mechanical problems but once the green flag went up everyone came out charsing Mike Gillman edged out Jerry Whelchel for the lead but Whelchel gave him a good run for the money These wo pulled away from the pack and finished in that order Third place was a battle between Marty Tripes and Ron Carter Tripes led and Carter followed all the way to the checkered Mike Bell had both hands full of steering wheel trying to ward off Greg Doug Ingles took first overall in the 1 2 1600 class by winning the first moto and taking second place in the second round of action George and then on the fifth lap fourth and third in the

Text Photos Wayne Simmons THE FLORIDA 400 Kevin and Jdf Probst Win the Six Hour Enduro i n a Berrien Kevin and Jeff Probst came south from Illinois and raced hard in the Berrien and took first overall honors and the Class 1 purse The Florida 400 is one of the toughest and most grueling races in the southeast It is six hours of non stop off road racing on a four mile course near Tallahassee The track site is a large clay pit with the route stretching in and out of the pit There is almost a mile of high speed straight away on the back side and as the course works down into the pit there are sharp hair pin turns with 50 foot drop offs Down in the bottom there are ditches jumps and the slippery clay As the route winds in and out to the woods loose sand and blind turns wait for the unsuspecting driver The Florida Off Road Drivers Association F O R D A hosts the race each year and this group was established in 1970 A dozen of the club members race ail over the USA and into Canada and the drivers from other areas come to the Florida 400 This year many racers came from the northeast and Bill Lefeurve came from Ontario Canada Steve Norris came south from Michigan Kevin and Jeff Probst from Illinois and others came from all over the midwest and the south to test the tricky race course The afrernoon before race day there was a practice session It was then that Jesse Casey lost control and drove into a ditch that crossed the track Before he could get out several more race cars jumped over him Jesse was ok but a bit nervous about having buggies jumping over his head Race day was clear with warm weather and only a small chance of rain The race schedule called for a 10 a m start just after the driver s meeting The 59 starting entries were lined up on the grid three across and twenty deep The flagman would turn each row loose at three second intervals The first rows went off OK but by the time the fourth row started the dust was so bad the drivers could hardly see Leon Felix missed a turn ran up a bank then backed down into traffic and took off Luckily no one hit him and by now the whole field all buggies were off and racing Clay Hurst made an early pit stop but was running again by the second lap Ron Baker in his two seater rolled on the first lap but he was unhurt and soon on his way As they came around for the first time it was Steve Norris in the lead followed by Jimmy Crowder and Travis Hurst Probst as on the move now and J R Taylor broke his transmission on lap 13 Now Ed Righter was out of the ditch and his pit was replacing the broken tie rod Jerry Allen came around with several broken shocks while Mark Oliver and Tom Seckman ha d a collision that bent Tom s front end a little Steve Norris was back on the track too Jimmy Crowder made a pit stop giving first place to Probst on the 16th lap Suddenly on the 17th lap a tragedy on the back straight brought out the red flag stopping the race Steve Norris who had been gaining ground caught a slower car on the back straight where speeds can reach over 80 mph In the thick dust Steve clipped wheels with the car which sent him end over end off the track at first then the thick brush sent Steve back onto the track where the car stopped upside down At this point Norris had been knocked out and hurt his arm In the blinding dust the cars behind him were unaware his car was on the track The next buggy struck Norris buggy hard causing a fire By now Jed Denahan and Bruce Bennett saw the fire and realized Norris was hurt so they stopped to help As Jed pulled off the track and got to Steve s car another buggy came out of the dust and struck Jed sending him head first over onto the other buggy The main flagman realized the bad problem and red flagged the race A medical helicopter was called by the paramedics to take Jed to the hospital Steve was also taken to the hospital with a broken arm and other probler11s After a short driver s meeting to explain how everyone would be lined up for the restart the line formed on the grid in the order of finishing the 16th lap Thi ty minutes had been added Jimmie Crowder not only hosts the Florida 400 on his property but he races

quickly pushed out and back in the action David Greene had to stop to wipe mud off of his face and Jimmy Shiver had to pit early with a flat tire With only a few laps gone Marty Pounds in his new D 1200cc class buggy had to make a quick pit stop also Allen Barnett did only three laps before serious trouble made him the first one out of the race Bill Lefeurve also made a pit stop as did Mickey McDuffee who didn t go much farther Steve Norris and Jimmy Crowder had been battling for the lead from the green flag and now Marty Pounds got between them coming back into the race J R Taylor hit Jesse Casey and bent the engine cage so Jesse pitted for a lap By now positions were changing Kevin Probst was fourth on the first lap but back to tenth in the seventh round George Williams Jr pitted with oil light trouble and Jed Denahan dropped back in the pack and Dave Clark was losing oil and had to pit The first one of the day to fall into a ditch was Ed Righter from New York Righter nose dived into the bank going fast enough to bury the front end in the dirt and shortly after Harry Anderson dove in beside Ed both drivers came out unhurt Anderson dug out in just a few minutes but Righter had to get down into the mud and dig out the front of the car By now flagmen were there keeping others from driving in on top of Righter s car and pit people came to help dig Meanwhile Steve Norris the first nine laps leader pitted in the tenth round putting Jimmy Crowder in the top spot Kevin June 1984 The new President of FORDA Mike Hester had his ups and downs in Tallahassee and Hester

Bob Broorhe pitted with a flat David Green retired and George Williams Jr had a broken motor mount and was done for the day After many pit stops Jimmy Shiver took the final drive into the pits and more flat tires brought Bruce Bennett and Ken Burkert into the pits Finally Jimmy Crowder moved in on Kevin Probst whose car had dominated the race for 35 laps Jimmy s Chenowth was right on top of the Berrien and Mike Hester was not far away either As Crowder made his bid it was busy but Jimmy took over first place on lap 52 By the next lap Probst was fighting off Hester and the battle was heating up as the time ran down With just twenty minutes of race time left Karl Wuesthoff and Terry White both went out with mechanical problems On lap 55 Hester got around Probst to take over second but then Mike hit a deep hole and Kevin was back in second With fifteen minutes left Crowder hit a pine tree bending the right rear trailing arm a victim of what the ra ers call pine tree itis Kevin Probst quickly took over first place and as the clock ran out neither Crowder or Hester were able to catch Probst With one Illinois champion Scott Taylor kicks his Pro Tech over the ditch but serious problems with shock absorbers put him down to 16th at the flag lap to go Brian Peterson went into the pits Crowder was still moving on a bent wheel as the checkered flag fell on Kevin Probst The Probsts won the Florida 400 with Jimmy Crowder in second and Mike Hester third The great race saw 33 of the 59 starters moving at the flag but Kevin and Jeff Probst had lapped them all and also won

points Mark Bicker was second followed by Pete Mezzon Jerry Robinson and Bret Otvos The Convention Race had a good turnout in entry and a clear and sunny day for racing The B sedan class and Novice class had June 1984 only three entries each so they were lumped into one class The first heat found Jody Denahan and Mark Bicker in a fierce battle for the number one position At the end of the second heat each man had won one round and placed second in the other In the third heat Novice driver Joe Cunningham passed both Denahan and Bicker but then got stuck in the sand The final results put Jody Denahan first in B Sedan class Mark Bicker second and Jerry Robinson in third In the Novice class Joe Cunningham nabbed first followed by Lenny Marsh Jody Edwards and Rob Baker split the driving to take third The 1200 cc D Class showed up with twelve cars and drivers anxious for some serious racing These guys changed positions more often then the weather did that day The top four finishers were all driving like maniacs that is a compliment guys In the first heat the top four finished nose to tail and it looked as if they were pushing one another across the line The most consistent finishers of the day were Scott Gundeck who took first on points Sam Pace who was second and Mark Surguine who won third place money J R Taylor looked good in the first and second heats but he got a bad break in the third round which dropped him to fourth place overall Class 1 and Class 1 2 1600 were put together on the track because of the light turnout in both groups There were six in the restricted 1600 buggy bunch and eight in Class f Th e first heat featured a thundering start with Mike Hester and Jimmie Crowder battling it out for the choice position Mike Hester managed to drop from first to sixth spot in one lap however He said his car stalled and would not restart Jimmie Crowder in his low flying Chenowth Magnum missile finished first in the first heat Among the 1600s Traitor Bruce Bennett was pulling off his first victory since switching from Class 1 to 11600 with Bob Bohres in hot pursuit There was plenty of shuffling in this class as there was in D and no one car won twice Ken Burkert took the second heat and Buddy Taylor won the third round On points Mike Hester was first in Class 1 Dennis Ard was second and Butch Summers third with Ron Baker fourth The wild 1600 battles resulted in Bruce Bennett in first Buddy Taylor second Bob Broome third and Ken Burkert took fourth FORDA announced their racing schedule for the coming year with a race every month except December

Portugal although he rallies for Puegeot in the USA Big names with the factories were as in 1983 Lancia and Audi Last season Lancia won the Manufacturer s Championship but Audi driver Hannu Mikkola won the Driver s Championship Audi is on a roll this year with wins at Monte Carlo and Sweden but those rallies were in the snow and ice where the 4 WO had considerable advantage Portugal would be different The first quarter of the rally is run on tarmac or asphalt Here the Lancias would be faster and more nimble than the Quattros The bulk of the run however was on gravel and here the 4 WO Audis were rnperior The big question was whether the Lancias could build a large enough lead on the pavement to hold off the Audis in the dirt Both factories showed up with four team cars valued at about 150 000 each Audi had a rare depth of talent current World Champion Hannu Mikkola of Finland former World Champion Walter Ro hr of Germany Stig Blomqvist of Sweden and Sare van der Merwe fresh from winning the 24 hours at Daytona Lancia had its own former World Champion Markku Alen of Finland current European C hampion Micky Biasion of Italy Italian Champion Toni Bettega and the hot Finnish sensation Henri Toivonen Toyota had a pair of twin cam Turbo Celicas Renault brought a pair ofR 5 Turbos and Nissan had a single 240 RS Back with number 15 was Jon Woodner the top private entry in the field of 86 ears The rally started on Wednesday with three stages near Estroij and Sintra west of Lisbon paved stages that were run three times each These are incredibly dangerous with the roads lined with people standing on the edge and even in the road How no one got hurt is amazing True to form the Lancias were fastest on the pavement with T oivonen setting the pace for the first five stages On the sixth he went off the road and out of the rally the only Lancia DNF Van der Merwe put his Quattro off for good on the following stage and Rohr went off after the finish of the stage breaking a strut on the Quattro and losing seven minutes VW is serious in Europe about rallies 7th overall nd first In Group A ent to Ct ar ing thro_u_gh the dust Markki Afen and 1 kka Klvlmakl alm_ost got the Kalle Grundel and P ter Diekmann in a VW Golf GTI Group B Lancia Rally home In front but had to settle for second Biasion took over the lead and it was still Lancia 1 2 3 Woodner began working through the pack after a couple of flats and was back in 15th place after 15 stages then the oil pump let go putting him out for good The first of the gravel stages were in the far north and the leaders changed tires and set out The Lancias had a 2 minute lead over the first Quattro Mikkola The question was whether they could hold off the 4 WO in the loose stuff For the next two days an incredible battle ensued as Mikkola slowly reeled in all of the 2 WO Lancias Alen in his Lancia was brilliant but the technical advantage of 4 Coming into a town for a checkpoint often proved to be very tricky in traffic This is Bettega s Lancia at Toma on the Saturday run WO on gravel was too much By Saturday Mikkola had put the Quattro into the lead The Toyotas ran gamely but could not match the L mcias on paved roads nor the Audis in the dirt Both of the Japanese cars went out with nearly identical drive train failures While things were going well for Mikkola the rest of the Audi team was having lots of trouble Blomqvist started off with a slipping clutch and on stage 34 rolled over and out Rohr after the strut change was the faS t est driver in the rally Without the seven minute penalty he would have been leading In the dirt he began to fly winning several daylight stages It was all for nothing because he rolled on stage 29 and spent 22 minutes getting the car going again On Saturday the dust problem caused the organizers to put two minutes between the cars By now only 22 of the or igi al 86 starters were left Still Alen was eating Mikkola s dust so the Lancia team decided to do something about it They had Biasion and Bettega jump into the sta rt control on stages 44 and 45 behind Mikkola but ahead of Alen They each started the stage and then pulled off and waited for Alen to pass That gave Alen six minutes of clear road It was not quite enough Mikkola held on for that 27 second win It was a very popular win with the fans and the motor press was ga ga over the closeness of the finish So Audi won its third World Champ ionship event this year and Audi drivers are now 1 2 3 in the standings Lancia took the next three spots followed by Jean Ragnotti s Renault In spite of all the problems he had Walter Rohr was sixth in his Quattro After the event the FISA met and announced that they very much wanted a World Championship event in the United States by 1986 They also said that by that time no less than 15 or 16 factories would have Group B cars to compete with the Lancias and the Audis One of the factories named was Ford Tim Cline Guilford Ccnmecticut FROM THE

MICKEY THOMPSON S OFF ROAD CHAMPIONSHIP GRAND PRIX The Stadium Race Season Begins at Pomona By Jean Calvin Photos T rackside Photo Enterprises Mini truck main event action shows Roger Mears 7 Nissan hopping past both Willie Valdez and Jeff Huber en route to his fine second place April means springtime and springtime means the start of the MTEG stadium type races at Pomona and this year the races head east as well Thompson stuck with his successful format from 1 983 at the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds stuffing all the action into one day It was a full S 1 turday of morning practice afternoon qualifying and an evening of serious racing on the less than a mile course that winds around the infield of the horse track at Pomona While the format was the same some drivers thought the course was different especially with one of the metal mechanical jumps on the front straight replacing the more familiar mound of dirt from last year There was some mechanical trouble in practice especially in the Nissan camp Both Roger Mears and Sherman Balch broke tranny flex plates on the new short course rigs and the non stock parts had to be acquired back in the city so both missed the qualifying sessions Steve Foster lost an engine and he had hauled all the way from San Antonio Texas to race After setting the hot time in qualifying he put another engine together with some spares and borrowed parts The much talked about new short course T oyotas failed to materialize In the pits were both trucks from last season plus both of the new desert Toyotas Ivan Stewart and Steve Millen elected to race the new desert trucks and they ended up winning with them After the midday break the autograph session with the public started when the gates opened around 5 p m People poured in the doors but while there were plenty of drivers and cars to see the row of contingency donors was down by about half this year some said because of a new charge to manufacturers for parking space in contingency row The grandstands were filling rapidly when the five fastest Class 10s appeared on the track Page 32 for their trophy dash Glenn Harris in a new Fuoco had quick time followed by Mike Gillman

his Fuoco but Brian Harber and Glenn Harris were locked onto his tail Two cars got hooked together on the first turn but they were again moving before the pack came around Harber made a wild pass on the next lap Harris stayed with him arid Tjelmeland had trans trouble and pulled off into the grass Midway in the eight laps Harber with Harris still in his shadow was long gone The pair were often side by side over the jumps and through the turns Well back Michael Withers Fuoco and Dave Bonner Hawk were battling for third passing and repassing At the flag it was Brian Harber a notch ahead of Glenn Harris a big gap to Wit hers who won third over Bonner followed by Randy Shoaff Fuoco The second Class 10 heat was equally as busy with 14 starting cars Ron Carter got the hole shot in his Fuoco but Chet Huffman Chenowth passed to lead mid lap with Mike Gillman and Ed Martensen battling for space too In three laps Gillman had the lead but not by much over Huffman and the trio to the rear were Martensen Jerry Whelchel and Carter Gillman including flapping rear fenders and Huffman continued their Conery also smoking badly close combat through six laps survived in third while Valdez then Huffman faded back and vanished midway in the race Whelchel caught him As Mike Although tempers were flaring Gillman took the checkered flag between Millen and Mears there Whelchel passed Huffman in

Text Photos Rory Ivers VORRA AT BAYLANDS April Antics for Off Road Racers on the Stadium Style Track In the first Class 10 moto the dice was between Jim Haber in left who won the moto and overall and Steve Bradford The second round in the 1984 VORRA Series was at Baylandi Raceway in Fremont California on a stadium style track that is a real challenge The track offers drivers ample opportunity to show who spent the winter wisely and it holds all or nothing in traction and dust extremes First on the program the Sportsman class broke in the freshly watered infield While this wouldn t normally be noteworthy at Baylands the traction often goes on vacation if anyone even mentions water Only an objectionable amount of dust made water trucks a requirement Lowell Carpenter took his VW sedan to a short lived lead in Sportsman then he spun out entering the infield Taking over was buggy driver Fred H appich with Bob Morgan Jim Stone and Les Poulson in pursuit Stone s sedan bit it on turn 1 also dropping him from the front runners By now Michael St Pierre had moved into fourth with Carpenter fo lowing until he spun out again Stone took advantage of his fellow Bug driver s misfortune and took over his fifth place spot Carpenter stayed on it trying to recoup his loss but he was forced to drop out with a missing right front wheel At the flag the race went to Happich with Morgan narrowly beating Poulson for second In the second Sportsman moto St Pierre sprinted out front ahead of Randy Scheck Richard Stersia Carpenter and Morgan In turn 1 Morgan dove inside Carpenter s Bug and the two ended up playing T bone This gave Andy Carpenter enough room to move to third bumping Stersia to fourth By lap 2 Andy Carpenter moved out front with Stersia Lowell Carpenter and Stone in tow Starting lap 3 Scheck claimed first spot as Andy did a donut Stersia still held second until he spun out on the first infield corner On the next lap it was still Scheck out front followed by Happich Poulson L Carpenter and Don Kennedy Soon it was a three way tie for the lead then Happich dropped to third and ended up on the sidelines with a moto VORRA perrennial Herb dead engine This left Scheck to Halloway got tangled up in traffic fight it out with Poulson until he and ended up on his side While got caught in some mud losing not dangerous by itself second to Kennedy who was Halloway s buggy wasn t visible followed by Lowell Carpenter to the back row starters in the Starting the last lap Scheck spun dust and it was hit from behind out in the sweeper giving the win with the other car s front wheel to Kennedy followed by Scheck going through the engine and Lowell Carpenter was third exhaust opening With an impact strong enough to bend the seat in the Bug On points Don Kennedy won back and crack Halloway s Sportman honors with a fifth and helmet Herb was fortunate to a first Andy Carpenter came in only have his bell heavily rung second with a pair of fourths and Had there been a diagonal roll Randy Scheck was third with an cage tube above the exhaust carb area chances are that Herb eighth and a second _ 1vl oving to Class r 2 oOO Ttm wou d have made the restart It 1s

regardless of the number of entries The Mint 400 has turned into a real convention and a bigger industry gathering for promoters than anything else in o ff road racing During two trips through contingency row on Friday we spotted promoters from far and wide busy at the various booths trying to promote contingency donors for their various series of races For the first time we met a trio of fellows from the Georgia Off Road Racing Association whose main remark was a njfty drawled statement this sure is the big time We also talked with Leonard Day head of the Pro Can Am Racing Series that runs in both the state of Washington and in Oregon on the desert and on short courses in existing race tracks Walt Schwalbe of the Superior Off Road Racing Series in Wisconsin was busy snapping pictures and talking to all the folks on contingency row And there were a host of folks from the midwest involved with the Berrien Autocross Series as well Ed Robinson of VORRA was bending ears at the VIP party on Friday at the Top of the Mint and there were probably more such promoters in the woodwork and at the Speedrome that we may have missed seeing Maybe next year the Mint Hotel should print another brand of badge with _the words Race Promoter in place of Participant Seldom if ever have so many promoters from all over the country ht en seen in one spot It just might be the place to have a meeting for all oft road promoters next May There sure were a bunch of spectator accidents at the Mint 400 this year man y of them that called for medical aid There always are plenty of folk who fall in ditches take headers off 3 wheelers and bikes and generally break bones and scratch their often bare hide on the brush But this year the radio calls for medics were almost constant all day as ifan epidemic had broken out around_ the 100 plus miles of race course The spectators just outside the Speedrome really put their lives on the line as the race started by crowding the trail down to one narrow lane They were treated to some roll overs luckily the rolling cars went straight down the course instead of into and on top of the bystanders The shame of it is that the crazys that get injured playing around can hainper instant medical aid being available for the real racers As it turned out a fleet of ambulances and helicopters took care of everyone with great dispatch but they sure were
