.
It
was
a brutal
109
degrees
trackside
at
the_
Riverside
SCORE
off-road
championships.
A
demanding
challenge
for
both the
drivers
and
their
machines
on
what
was
called
· Riverside's roughest course in history. When
the
blistering
heat
didn't
get
the
competition,
the
Nissan
Hardbodies did.
Roger Mears
won
the
opener
for
compact picl<up
trucks, maneuvering
his
Class
7
Nissan
Hardbody
VG
to
his
20th off-road championship in
41
starts.
It
was a dust-eat-
ing, wire-to-wire finish. .
On
the
same
searing
track,
Jim
Conner
YDUA8m/.J}\
demonstrated driving
sawy
and Hardbody
~
stamina, emerging victorious in his
Nissan
4x4.
Nissan
congratulates
Roger
Mears
and
Jim
Conner
on
their
wins.
Of
course,
events
such
as
these
mean
more
than
victory.
They
offer the opportunity to
drive
Nissan
cars
and
trucks under
the
severest conditions possible. This
is
just
one
of
the
ways in which
the
quality
that
goes
into
Nissan

is
constantly being improved~ -

Trail
Notes.~.
This
year's
Frontier
500,
while
it
didn't
have
the
romance
of
a
.
point
-
to-point
race any longer,
picked
up
some
excitement
when
the
Frontier
Hotel
decided
to
put
it
on
their
Race.
and
Sports
Book
.
Off
road
fans were given a chance.
to
make
formal
bets
on
their
favorite drivers
in
four classes.
Those
included
w~re Class 1, 2,
8,
and
1-2-1600.
There
were a
lot
of
frustrated
Class
10
fans,
and
the
mini
truck
folks were mighty
c;lisappointed,
but
there's
always
next
year. ,
. Early
on
contingency day
the
most
heard
question
was
"What
odds
did
you
get?".
They
.were a
little
strange
in
some
cases,
because
the
Frontier
had
no
statistical
information
to
,
work
with,
although
Danny
Cau,
who
does
the
computer
work for
the
HDRA
and
SCORE,
had
tried
to
help
them.
As
a result,
the
odds
were
too
high
in
many
cases
·
when
the
board
first
opened
.
They
had
Walker
Evans,
Bob
Richey
and
Nick
Nicholson
at
10
/ 1
for
example,
and
Jim
Temple
and
Bob
Gordon
at
15
/ 1 ,
while
Dave
Kreisler,
Danny
Letner
and
Bob
Neth
found
themselves listed
at
20
/ 1.
Onc
e
their
fans
and
families
discovered
these gaffes,
the
odds
soon
changed,
and
by
the
end
of
contingency day Evans was
an
even
bet
·, as were Richey, Larry
·
Noel(who'd
startedat8
/ 1 ),
Rob
·
Tolleson
, Steve
Kelley
and
a few
others
who
escape
our
memory.
The
system
is simple,
but
was
new
to
most
off
roaders
. A big
board
was
posted
behind
the
Race
and
Sports
Book
counter,
which
listed
about
20
Class 1
drivers
,
23
Class 2 drivers, 2 7
in
the
1-2-1600s,
and
11
Class 8
folks.
Everyone
else was
lumped
into
what
is called
the
"field'',
and
the
odds
were·
2;
1 there.
All
,
a
person
wishing
to
bet
on
his
buddy
had
to
do
was walk
up
to
the
Frontier
500
'
window
and
plunk
down
his money, giving
the
-
appropriate
betting
number
for
his
buddy.

The
Sports
Book
folks were
pleasantly
surprised
at
the
·
action,
and
told
us
there'd
been
"lots"
of
betting
by
the
off
roaders.
We
were
told
that
next
year
they
hope
.
to
get all
the
classes
on
the
board.
· .
Off
roaders
are apparently
not
very sophisticated
bettors,
·
and
up
until
about
9:30
at
night
,
no
one
had
placed
any
bets
on
the
.
field.
At
about
that
time
the
odds
changed,
to
5/
1,
and
John
Johnson
became
the
first
bettor,
.
with
$5
.00
on
the
field
in
every
class
.
The
man
beh
i
nd
the
counte
r-
thought
it was a
good
bet,
and
John
thought
he
'd
most
likely get his
$20
back
, with
an
extra five.
lt
seemed logical
to
think
that
one
of
the
classes
would
have a
surprise
winner
. As
it
turned
out,
he
lost all
four
bets.
The
winners in all
four
classes
were listed
on
the
board
.
None
of
the
win11ers
paid
big
odds,
and
Bob
Scott
and
Mike
Voyles,
in
1-
2-1600,
were
the
best
paying
winners,
at6
/ 1.
Snook,
Gordon
.
and
Kelley
were
all
at
even
money
or
close
to
it.
We
spoke
to
the
Manager
of
the
Sports
and
Race
Book
at
the
Frontier,
and
he
told
us
that
next
year
it
might
be
set
up
as a

That
means
that
the
monies
bet
go
into
a
pool,
and
the
winners
divide
it
up
in
proportion
to
the
size
of
their
bets.
Doing
it
that
way
we
wouldn't
know
the
odds
on
our
bets
until
the
betting
closed.
But
this
type
of
a
set
up
would
let
us
bet
on
win, place,
or
show
.
We
wonder,
if
the
pit
crews all
had
bets
on
their
cars,
would
they
work
faster?
Or
does
the
driver
who
bet
on
himself
push
harder?
What

on
in

of

who
knows

placed a big
bet
on
him
to
win?
On
another
subject.
For
years
off
roaders
have
been
telling
the
world
that
one
of
the
things they
like
about
off
road
racing is
that
it's
a family
oriented
sport.
One
generally envisions this
to
mean
that
Dad
races
and
th~
kids
and
Mom
go along for spectating
and
help
in
the
pits
.
But
now
that
off
road
racing is getting along
in
years,
we're
seeing
more
and
.
more
racin-g

The

_te~ed under the program and have a green
sticker applies ONLY
TO
_CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS.
If

do

not
carry a California-driver'~ license, you
do
not
need green
ii"ticker
to
nice in California. Enforcers will be
at
Parker the endofJanuary, however,
so all California racers ~ ould
do
_well
to

of
a couple
of
years ago ·seein
to
be
on
the way back
iri
1987. Desert folks thought the
probkm
was cured
when Score and
HDRA
joined up in a common series,"each dropping a race
to
make a comfortable eight 'face .series. For those without the budget
to
compete in the
~ajor
ser\es, good club style events are all around: You·can
run the southern desert
in
California with Fudpucker.,
or
the fun series
put
on
by both
ADRA
in Arizona.and SNORE in.southern Nevada. The northerners
. ·could run
both
desertand-short coµrsewith
VORRA
;-
and gofurtherriorth
to
·
run the desert with
Pi-o
CanAm.-Certainly there seems to -be enough desert
runs for anyone.'s taste.
·_
.
,·,
. · , But, in 1987.a new entity
<called
Baja Promotions,
LTD".
Js promoting a
pair
of
races around San·Felipe in Baja California. );hese everits·will schedule
all the current desert classes for both cars·andn_iotorcycle engined vehicles, in
. both-Pro and Sportsman categories, si~ilar to ADRA. Presented by
On
Dirt
Magazine and the City
of
San Felipe, the dates are February 22r24, 1987; l!
200 mile run, and
October
3-4, 1987,
a:
300
mile race.
The
announceme
nt
last
month
raised t~e hackles
on
s~rridong time desert race prom~ters necks,·'
The first date seems uncomfortably close
to
the
HORA
March
6--8
Gold
Coast 250, and "the second date ·
is
right
on
a coilision course
'.
with the
Fudpucker Plaster City Blast, less than
20Q
miles·north of'San Felipe. Only
time will tell how these dates all
washout
:•But, tf\ere-can:be t
oo
many races a
year, even for the southwestern drivers. Usually the result) s. tha

RUMBLES
FROM
THE
ORANGE
SHOW
.. The penuli:i~ate i:ound 'in
the 1986 Mickey
Thompson
Off
Road Championship
Gran
Prix Series went
of
f smoothly
on
September
13
at
the
Orange Show Fairgrou
ti
'ds.
But; when
-we arrived in the
··
early .afternoon, the pits _seemed empty, 'compared to
previous· events,
he,e
. Well, some
of.the
better known buggy
te_ams
were
missing, and the entry in
both
Class 10 and Class
1-2
alp00 was down
considerably-
from
the prior event at
the
L.A.
<;::oliseum.
·For example, there
were 25 Class
10
ca:fs
on
the list
at
the
Coliseum,
and
only
16
at the Orange
Show.
The
drop
was even more dramatic in Class
-1-
-
:2°
1600,
that
field~d
13
at ·
the Coliseum,
but
only two starters at the
drang
e Show. Even i:nore curiqus
is
the fact
that
there was
no
conflicting
_race
date on September-
13
: ·
. Many pit folks
th
ought the "
Group
Cc;mce
pt",
·(see article
in
.this
is
sue)
was having a major impact on the bu
gg
y entry. Add to'
that
reports
of
a letter
from MTEG
sent
to
all
1
-.
1600 drivers, which
we
have
not
seen, But, it was
reported that the letter suggested the 1600 entry
wa
~
not
important enough to
· warrant their own rac
e,
a
ncl
that the
cl
ass would probably be·
dropped
fr
om
the · 1987 schedule.
Th
e indefatigable' Mickey Thempson seemed
sc
arcely
fazed
by the readily available parking
in
the pits or the slim fields in the
automotive based classes.
He
remarked that
if
the buggies choose
not
to
r
ac
,e
with MTEG, there were plenty
of
other
cl~
e'
s waiti_n
_g
for the opportunity to
go stad
i_
um racing: - ·

The
g
ood
n'ews
is
that
the"
Oran
'
ge
Show program.was tight,
on
schedule,
and over before 10:00 p.m. Most folks were home abo
ut
the
time

as

v.
e Millen won the.truck bash and
th
e series
championship in the Toyota, Vince Tjelmeland _won
top
ho11ors
in
UltraStock in his Pontiac, arid Wes Elrod won the 1-2-1600
p<?ints
and was
second overall in the
UltraStock
race. Most, exciting was the
debut
of
young
Rob
Gordon
in ·on,e of Bob's ·fancy Chenowths. Rob got the hole _
shot
in

class
10 main event, and he led all
the
way to victory. This

by just

Nostalgia buffs in
off
road racing got a·real surprise at the Orange Show. -
Driving the secohd Team Mazda pkkui;, was none
other
than Bobby Ferro.
If
you only got into desert racing
in
recent years, you
won't
remember
th
e-glory
days in
the
1970s
ofthe
Sandmaster Team
out"
of
NorthJiollywood,
CA,
starring Bobby Ferro, Gene Hirst and· nµmerous
oth
ers
who
have either
retired
or
gorie
on
to other classes.
When
the Sandmaster Team evolved into
other names and finally
broke
up; Ferro retired. He had
WOJj\
every desert race ·
there was, many s_everal times, usually overall. Seven y·
ea
_rs later/he made his
debut in stadium racing, looking good for ha".ing had
jlJSt
·a few laps·
of
practice. Like most
other
truck
drivers in the sereis, _Bobby tossed the Mazda -
on
·its_ side at one point. Ferro was subbing for

The
17th
Annual
Brush
Run
101
By
Jean
Calvin
One
of
the longest running
off
road races in the country, the
Brush
Run
'
10
l · started
out
through the woods in
northern
Wisconsin,
ran
on
various
venues over the years, and found
a permanent
home
in 1984 when
the organizers literally
"bought
the farm."
On
the butskirts
of
Crandon,
Wisconsin, tne farm
was quickly converted to a racing
facility
by
hordes
of
volunteers
gathered from
Crandon
·.
and
surrounding
towns.
Each
summer
since
then,
more
permanent
structures have been
added, the course widened and
improved,
and
fencing
and
·
hookups
installed in
the
camping
areas. Now, the 1.8 .mile track
on
natural
terrain
is,
in
our
judgement, the finest
outdoor
short
course facility in the USA.
This year the· Brush
Run
folks
put
together a two race series, the
Spring· Run in June
and
the
World's
Championship
Off
Road
Race
on
Labor
Day
weekend.
The
two race series
held a $20,000- points fund,
courtesy
of
Budweiser, payed
back · deeply in tbe classes
to
those who topped
the
points list.
Additionally, the Brush Run
101
has a hefty purse · just for the
event, and it was
no
surprise to ·
. see. the largest entry in any
short
course race, this year show _
up
in
the
north
woods
of
Wisconsin.
They tackled the well manicured
-:-
traGk
in a variety
of
classes,
including a
few
that arep~culiar,
to
the Superior
Off
Road Racing
•.
Series.
The
total entry swelled
to
well
over
550 cars, bikes
and
A
TVs,
including 162 in the
"Good
Old
Boys" class alone. .

Road America. This was the
biggest event in · the mid western
Formula Desert Dog Series, and
that brought more dough
into
the
· coffers via
contingency
prizes. This' year General Tire
Motorsports
jumped
into
Crandon
.
with
both
feet,
stringing promotional material
all over the course, all over town,
and sponsoring the Heavy Metal
Championship race,
and
a tire
rolling contest,
and
heaven only
knows what else. It was indeed a
festive weekend, and a well
paying
,
race
for
serious
competitors. .
New this year was organized
Friday activity.
Usually
the
camping meadows are thinly
populated until late Friday night·.
Last '
month
the new
Hot
lap
for
cash idea
brought
more racers
into town
early
on
the long
weekend. Several
open
practice
sessions were held, then each
-
entrant
was given a timed run,
the best
of
two counting, over the
course
to
try for·
Hot
Lap awards
in class. In classes where General
Tire offered contingency prizes,
the fast time was good for a set
of
four tires
of
your choice. In
other
.
classes the fast time was good for
a crisp, one hunclred dollar bill,
from the organizers.
It
was a keen
way
to
g~t
in some practice
and
try for some reward

time. . .t:,;.
