Baja.
Driying the course of this year's
Baja Internacional was no picnic
on
the beach.
Thick
wet sand, ~lippery stone
and
deep water crossings guaran-
. teed plenty
of
Work
for
the drivers.
And
for
their tires.
Just getting to
this
so-called
"easy" stretch of
the
nearly 500-
mile course was even more fun.
The drivers
had
to.contend
with
the mountains, rocks
and
ruts of
Mexico's toughest badlands.
So
winning
the Class 8
and
Class 7-4x4 crowns required tires
as tough
~s
the
Baja itself:
Goodyear Wrangler radials.
They're
the
radials that are
engineered to take
on
the tough-
est terrain. They're
the
very same
tires you
can
buy,
no matter

on
just one set

But
when

tha't I

I
have
been
an

of

since
moving
to

years

,
have

for

It's
not
hard
to
tell
the
·
difference
between
a

a Baja Bug
and
a buggy.
What
can
be
confusing
is
the
multiple
classes of_one
type
pf
car
such
as
1,
2, l
/2
1600,
9,
10
and
Challenge.
In
my
opinion,
.
the
logical
answer
lies in
setting
up
stock
classes (
emphasizing
th
e
word
"stock")
and
any
deviation
fro~
the
rules
lands
you
in
an
open

Both
of
these
classes
are
vehicles
that
.
the
public
can
identify

THE BAJA INTERNACIONAL must have been a difficult event for Don
Adams. His long time frie.nd and racing partner, Jason Myers,
was
killed in an
,airplane crash near his home in Colorado
on
Saturday, May 31. Ironically_
Myers had taken a friend
for
a ride in his private plane-that.afternoon
to
help
his wife Beth promote an upcoming air show. Gusty winds
turned
the landing
into a disaster.Jason was the Class
12
points champion last year with Adams
as
co-driver. This season Myers retired from driving the Class 3 Je
ep
Cherokee
to
devote his energies to race prepping the rig and acting
as
team
manager.
Don
Adams dedicated the Baja race to his close friend, and he.and
Larry Olsen won a real race
in
Class 3.
Our
sincere sympathy goes
to
t
he
family that Jason left behind; and to
all
his_ many friends who will miss him
sorely. .

THE BFGOODRICH
CANADIAN
CHALLENGE
CUP.
C~nadian
Claude Tetrault and American driver Roger Caddell shared the spotlight
as
the
Bf
Goodrich
Challenge
Cup
off
road car racing series concluded last June
7.
The
finale was held in conjunction with the annual Molson Canadian·
Supercross at Exhibition Stadium in
Toronto,
Ontario. Claude Tetrault, ·
from
St
. Hilaire, Quebec, drove his Funco buggy to an upset
vktory
in the
final
round
of
the four Tace series that started in Vancouver\ went
on
to
Calgary and Montreal, and finished in
Toronto
. A crowd
of
more .than.
40,000
saw Tetrault finish the ten lap race with a narrow lead over Caddell,
who
comesfrom
·Puyallup,.Washington. Caddell drives a Funco SS 2. Third
in
Toronto
was the 1985 Challenge
Cup
Champion, Bill LeFeuvre,
of
Limehouse, Ontario,
in
a Berrien Buggy. , . .
Claude Tretault, who had earlier finished second
in
a preliminary heat,
trailed early leader Richard Dagena
is,
of
Bois-des-Filions,
Qu
ebec, for the
first
t'.
ight laps. Tetrault took over the lead with only· two laps to go, after
Dage
nais.'
Richard
Buggy
was
out
of
the race with a blown engine. The first
three finishers
all
raced
on
BFGoodrich tires. Fourth was Normarid
Vailla[)co~rt,
of
Laval
,,
Quebec,
il),
·his Ric\rnrd
Buggy
sponsored Mantis,
. Serge Lambert,
of
St. Jerome, Quebec was fifth
in
his Richard
Buggy.
Taking
· sixth was the early series points leader
Warren
Miller
of
Maple Ridge, British
Columbia
in
a Miller Special.
While Tetrault took
home
the first place check, Roger Caddell.went
back
to
Washington with an even bigger award, the BFGoodrich Challenge
.
Cup
championship. Going into
Toronto
he had
vii:tt1ally
clinched the title,
and he wrapped it up in convincing fashion with a strong third place finish in
the preliminary heat and second placej n the feature. Roger w.
as
the only ·
driver
to
compete in all four Challenge
Cup
events, taking second in Calgary
and sixth at both the Vancouver and Montreal races.
"A
major ch.ampi9riship
·-
such
~s
this
is
very important to me at this stage
of
my racing career," Caddell
said after the race. "Besides, BFG was the first company
to
give me any real
sponsorship help, so it was.nice to win their series. It was a nice wedding
present
too,"
added the
24
year old· driver, who was married-only a week
before the final race. . . · .
Another
highlight
of
the
Toronto
Supercross program was a 4x4 truck
race, featuring the powerful full
size
off
road racing trucks. Dave Boldt
of
Nobleton,
Ontario
took the Modified
honors
iri
his
1977
Ford Bronco, while
...:.
Randy
Beaudri¢
of
Foxboro,
Ontario
drove his 1976
Ch
.evy Blazer
to
victory
in the Unli[)'lited catetory. · · · · ·

THE

250
is
shapin~·
up
to be another ma~sive
eri.t~y
desert race
on
the
4th
of
July weekend near Barstow. A
report
said that m:ore
than
230
were in the drawing for starting numbers. for the race that iriclu.des
only the
18
car classes in desert competition. While the pre-race activity will
be
on
familia,r ground, with headquarters at the Barstow Community College,·
off
Barstow Road, the course
wHI
be longer than usual. In recent years the
twilight event has
been
four laps
of
about
a
60
mile course. Because
of
the
problem last year
of
getting all the cars
off
the. line before the first ones come
back finishing the first lap.,
~he
course has been extended to approximately
83
..
miles.
The
format
will
change
to
three laps instead of four this
yes1.r.
The
course this
month
wilr include some
of
the nasty
rock
running
on
t'he Score
route, and the connecting trails, along with all
the
good
stuff
we have. come to ·
know
and love
on
the
HDRA
route. Course maps_were
not
in circulation
as
we go to press,
but
they will he available in Barstow for pre-runners
the
weekend before the race. A full supply
of
course maps:
will
l;,e
at the
]-11
store
owned by
Connie
and Mal Wessel, the
HDRA
Contingency Team. Their
7-11 store
is
. downtown in Barstow; and unfortunately,
we
do
not
have the
address .
..
look in the phone
book
when
you get to Barstow.
