iron-out
the toughest ·
course in
Riverside's
history.
Depending on how you look at it, the
course
of
this
year's 14th
Annual
SCORE
World Championship was either the best
or worst it has ever been.
Thick desert silt, ruts, and slickened
clay moguls were positioned relentlessly
between some
of
the biggest, baddest
jumps ever built.
And
with
temperatures hovering over
the century mark,
and
the hot Santa Ana
turning
mud baths into dusty steam
clouds, the-Goodyear drivers forged ahead.
In the Heavy Metal Challenge, Walker
Evans took the overall
win
in
his Class 8
Dodge Ram.
On
Goodyear Wrangler
radials.
In Class 7-4x4, Jim Conner outlasted
the competition
in
his Nissan Hardbody.
Also
winning
on Goodyear Wrangler
radials.
And
the
Goodyear Wrangler radials
that
Walker and Jim
run
on
their trucks
are
the
very same Wranglers ydu can buy
for
your truck.
Get a set
of
Goodyear Wrangler radials.
They'H get you through
the
best roads.
The worst roads.
Or where there is no road at all.
You
either
have
Goodyear Wrangler radials.
Or
you
need
them.

By
Tom
Grimshaw
On
the
afternoon
of
Saturday,
January
25,
1986,
I
personally
watched
SCCA
Management
pull
a
scam
on
the
SCCA
Board
of
Directors.
As
a
direct
result
of
SCCA
management's
slight-of-
hand,
Pro
Rallying
now
faces a
situation
that
becomes
progres-
sively
more
dangerous
to
competitors
,
workers,
the
public,
and,
if
we
are
to
believe
the
dire
warnings
about
loss
of
insurance
coverages,
the
very
future
of
our
sport.
Lest
you
think
I've
finally
tipped
several
bubbles
off
center,
read
on,
and
decide
for
yourself.
At
the
SCCA
National
Convention
in
Fort
Worth,
Texas,
those
of
us
involved in
Pro
Rally activities began
to
hear
rumors
that
Bob
Radford,
then
Rally/
Solo
Manager,
intended
to
_
dump
Bill
Brooks
as
National
Steward
and
substitute
a
program
of
five
event
stewards
(at
each
event)
drawn
from
the
ranks
of
racing
stewards
and
National
Pro
Rally
event
chairman.
On
the
one
hand
I believed
the
rumor.
Bill
Brooks
had
already
told
me
he
was
history
since
the
first
day
he
crossed
swords
with
the
loveable
Mr.
Radford.
Radford's
style
of
"don't
get
mad,
just
get
even"
was
at
full
bore
at
the
time
and
I was
sure
Brooks
was
no
more.
On
the
other
hand
I
found
it
hard
to
believe
the
SCCA
Board
of
Directors
would
allow
such
a
move.
Just
four
years earlier
that
same
Board
had
insisted we
employ
a full
time
experienced
National
Steward
in
the
interests
_
of
safety, fair
ans:!
irn__Qar_ti_al
_
rnles
application
and
to
· bring
our
program
in line with
other
SCCA
professional
series.
At
the
convention
Virginia
Reese
and
I were invited
to
a
Board
of
Directors
meeting
to
address
the
question
of
series
steward.
Ginny
spoke
briefly
to
the
members,
reminding
them
of
the original safety
concept
of
a
single
experienced
steward,
of
their
desire
that
we
have
such
a
position,
and,
finally,
she
reminded
them
that
they
had
already
adopted
the
new
Pro
Rally Safety
Program
which
specifically
included
employ-
ment
of
a single National
Series
Steward.
In
rebuttal,
the
President
of
the
SCCA
said
the
decision
to
replace
the
single
steward
with
five volunteers was a financial
decision.
The
Board
of
Directors
unanimously
voted
to
retain
the
successful
program
of
a single
National
Series
Steward
for
Pro
Rallying. I left
the
meeting feeling
that
something
had
finally gone
right
for
our
sport.
The
next
day I
attended
a
Pro
Rally
Forum
conducted
by
Dave
Thompson
and
again
heard,
from
Mr.
Thompson,
that
he
would
appoint
five event stewards
to
control
each
event
. I
asked
publicly
how
that
statement
could
stand
in view
of
the
BOD
vote
the
prior
day?
And
here
is
where
SCCA
management
performed
·
their
double-talk
magic.
Dave
Thompson
said yes, his
office
would
comply
with
the
vote
of
the
Board
of
Directors.
He
was
the single National
Series
Steward
and
would
appoint

assistant
stewards
at
each event.
In
short,
management
com-
plied with
the
exact wording
of
the Board
of
Directors
vote
while
ignoring
the
intent. It was an
obvious
subterfuge.
The
Board's
intent
was very clear, else why
the
discussion
and
vote
in
the
first place?
We
have
now
completed
four
national events in
the
1986
series
and
can assess
the
results
of
the
new
program
.
To
begin with, we
now
have a
Rally
/
Solo
Manager
who
doubles
as Series
Chief
Steward
although
he has
no
qualifications
for
the
position.
Mr.
Thompson
has never
been
a
Pro
Rally
competitor,
has never held a
national license,
and
has very
limited
experience
in
event
management.
At
each
of
the
first
four
events
we
have
seen
assistant
stewards
named
and
protest
committees
formed
of
people
who
have even less
experience
than
Dave
Thomp-
son.
Most
of
them
are totally
unknown
to
anyone
in
our
sport.
These
assistant
stewards
are little
more
than
observers.
Yet they
have
no
prior
knowledge
of
the
sport
upon
which .
to
base
their
observations.
In
short,
Dave
Thompson
could
well
be
a suitable manager
but
that
title
does
little
to
overcome
his
total
lack
of
experience
or
that
of
most
of
the
assistant
stewards
he
has
appointed
at
events.
Why
should
any
of
this
disturb
us?
Isn't
it
just
a
matter
of
cutting
costs? A
simple
matter
of
word
games?
I
don
't
think
so. I believe
if
something
is
not
changed
IM
MEDIATELY
we are talking
of
life
and
death
...
Susquehannock
Trail
Pro
Rally -
June
7, 1986: Stage
Two-
In view
of
the
new
rule
limiting
stage scoring
to
a
maximum
average
speed
of
70
MPH,
John
Buffum tells
Dave
Thompson
we
should
not
use Stage
Two
because we will exceed
the
70
MPH
limit.
Dave
Thompson,
who
pre-checked
the
course,
disagrees
and
allows it
to
be used.
Millen
and
Buffum
both
exceed
the
70
MPH
average
speed
for
the stage.
Stage Seven -
At
the
start
control
Buffum
and
I
are
told
by
the
control
captain
that
there
will
be a delay because a civilian
pickup
truck
drove
into
the
stage
and
has
not
been
located.
An
hour
later,
the
civilian still has
not
been
found
and
still has
not
passed any
marshal
point
or
exited
the
stage
past
the
finish
point.
About
thirty
minutes
later
Dave
Thompson
arrives
and
orders
us
to
start
the
stage.
We
ask
if
the
civilian has
been
located.
He
tells us
no
one
has
spotted
him
but
they think they
know
where
he is.
We
refuse
to
start
the
stage.
The
control
captain
agrees
with
us.
Thompson's
wife
becomes
very
upset
and
tells Buffum we
are
browbeating
her
husband.
Later the stage
is
cancelled
and
we
transit
it
at
a
slow
speed.
At
the finish I
am
told
they still have
not
located
the
civilian
pickup
truck
.
Stage Eight -
Tim
Cline
and
many
other
spectators
are wait-
ing for
the
cars
to
come
through
the stage.
The
cars
are
quite
late
because
of
the
long delay
at
Stage
September 1986
Seven. Finally,
someone
spots
headlights
and
announces
that
the
course
opening
car
is
approaching
.
The
course
opening
car
had
not
previously
passed
through
the
stage.
Cline
and
the
spectators
are
surprised
when
the
very first car
down
the
stage
road
is
Buffum
and
I in
the
Audi
Quattro
AT
FULL
SPEED.
We
are totally unaware,
until
informed
by
Tim
Cline
and
several
others,
after
the
rally,
that
no
course
opening
car
had
preceeded
us.
Arkansas
Travel
er
Pro Rally -
July
26,
1986: Stage
Four
-A
15-
mile daylight stage. Buffum slows
down
half
way
through
the
stage.
He
has held
the
Quattro
well
over
100
MPH
for
some
miles
and
decides
to
let off.
Despite
the
slowing
down
we average .
76
MPH
on
a
road
that
we
could
have averaged
90
MPH
on.
Dave
Thompson
pre-checked
this
course
and
allowed
the
stage
to
remain.
Millen also averages well
over
the
maximum-allowed
70
MPH
and
the
stage
scores
do
not
count
for
the
top
two
contenders;
the
very cars for
which
the
70
MPH
rule
was
introduced.
At
the
finish line
of
the fastest
·stage in the rally, in
the
daylight,
the
control
captain
asks
what
the
hell
we're
doing
there?
The
control
has
not
timed
us.
They
have been
told,
by
radio,
that
the
start
has
been
held
because
some
marshals are not
in
place on
the
stage.
The
course
opening
car
is
still sitting
at
the
stage finish
control.
We
warn
them
that
Millen is
two
minutes
behind
us
and
follow
the
course
opening
car
to
the
next
start
control.
Stage Five -
We
follow
the
course
opening
car
into
the
start
control
and
watch
it leave
to
open
the
13-mile stage.
We
start
to
get
out
because we
know
it will
be at least
20
minutes
before
the
?
opening
car
is
through
the
stage.
The
control
captain
tells
us
that
we are
due
to
start
in
two
minutes.
We
refuse
to
leave. Millen
arrives, listens
to
the
problem,
shuts
down
and
refuses
to
leave
the
start
line.
The
Control
Captain
insists
she
will
not
change
our
starting
times
and
we are
now
on
our
own
stage time,
although
she
did
note
our
protest in
her
log.
When
we
ask
to
speak
to
a rally official
on
the
radio
we are
informed
there
is
no
radio contact in
that
area
because
of
the
valleys.
They
cannot
speak
to
anyone.
Five
minutes
after
we
were
about to start the stage a ranger is
informed
on
his
radio
that
the
stage is
to
be
stopped
because
the
course
opening
.
car
has
found
a
major
intersection, unmarshaled,
with civilian traffic moving
on
the stage road.
He
hurries
up
to
warn
the
control
personnel
and
we begin a
two
hour
wait.
·
At
the
end
of
the
rally, several
people
tell
me
they waited
at
the
finish
of
that
stage
and
watched
Dave
Thompson
and
the
Rally
Chairman
sit
and
do
nothing,
until the stage finally
started
TWO
HOURS
LATE
.
These are
only
the
most
recent
examples
of
the dangers we have
created because we
no
longer
have
an experienced National
Steward.
There
are many
more
such
tales,
but
I
think
I'v
made
my point.
During
the
first
four
'86
National
events
I have
not
seen
our
National Steward at
more
than
two
stage start controls
and
it
is
at
the
starts
of
stages
where
the
ultimate safety
decisions
must
be
made.
During
the many lengthy
delays
at
start
controls
this
season, I have seen
our
National
Steward
appear
only
once
and
then
we correctly refused
to
follow his
orders
.
During
the
tenure
of
Bill
Brooks
(1984-1985)
I can recall
only
rare occasions
when
he was
not
present
at
every
start
control,
at every
p0int
of
delay
or
concern
to
competitors.
John
Buffum,
Rod
Millen,
Harry
Ward,
Jon
Woodner,
Tony
Sircombe
and
I have
become
the Pro Rally National
Stewards
of
1986.
We
must
attempt
to
bring
some
sanity
to
dangerous
situations
by simply
refusing
to
start
a stage.
We've
already
done
it
several times -
and
we've
only
run
four
events.
At
best
it
is
a guessing game
on
our
part
.
Luckily
we
have
guessed right so far. But it's
only
luck.
Do
you
think
SCCA
will
correct
this
situation
before we
experience a
major
incident? I
don't.
Do
you
think
we 'll get
through
this year
without
a
major
incident? Perhaps we'll get
lucky -
but
do
you
want
to
change places with Buffum
and
I,
or
Millen
and
Ward,
or
W
oodner
and
Sircombe,
and
trust
to
luck?
My wife recently
brought
home
an
ancient
German
saying
explaining
The
Law
of
Divine
Intervention:
"Alie
kunst
ist
un
sunt
wenn
ein engel
auf
das zundloch
brunzt."
"All
skill is in vain
when
an
angel pees in
the
touchhole
of
your
musket."
Let's
do
something
before the
angels decide
to
work
their
humor
on
us.

Sherman
Balch
wins
the
Grand
National
Pickup
Truck
Championship.
On July 20th, all
the
top
factory teams and
their
driv-
ers
showed
up
at
Mickey Thompson's Off-Road Gran
Prix expecting a
race.
Yet,
after
the
smoke had cleared
and
the
twisted metal had been picked
from
the
track, many said
it
was more like a war.
Driving his
Nissan
Truck against a field
of
13,
Sherman Balch
took
the
lead
from
the
start. As
the
other
trucks
jammed
together
in a desperate
attempt
to
catch him, Balch's
Nissan
carved
up
the
berms,
sailed over bumps and
whoops
and
took
jumps
that
propelled
him
over distances
of
60 feet. Behind
him
trucks slammed
into
each
other
time
and again and
finally seven trucks staged
one
of
the
most
massive
pileups in recent memory. Yet, Balch and his
Nissan
kept
turning
in lap after lap
to
the
thundering ap-
eaT /Fl\ plause
of
over 52,000 fans and finished
YOURSELF\_,!
with
a
wide
lead-without
even a scratch.
Nissan
congratulates Sherman Balch
on
his win.
Of
course, events
such
as
these mean more
than
victory.
They
offer
an
opportunity
to
drive
Nissan
cars
and
trucks under
the
severest conditions possible. This
is
just
one
of
the
many ways in
which
the
quality
that
goes into
Nissan
cars
and trucks
is
constantly being
improved.
You can
get
the
same
top
quality too,
with
Nissan's

for

I
believe
that
all
competitive

promoters
should
form
an
association
to
be able
to
prevent
this
situation
from
arising again
and impacting their area
of
sports. If
you

it
can
't
happen

another
look
at
the

situation
in the
USA.
Our
thanks
to
Congressman
Harry
Reid
who
volunteered
to
go
to
the
State
of
Nevada
Insurance
Commission
on
SNORE's
behalf
. Nevada
is
a
wonderful
state, where
you
can
make
a
phone
call
and
tatk
to
your
elected officials
on
a
one
to
one
basis,
and
they will react
promptly
to
the
situation
without
a
lot
of
double
talk
and
red
tape.
Congressman
Reid
sent
a letter
of
recommendation
to
insurance agents
on
SNORE's
behalf
; stating in part.
"The
forced
closure
of
non-profit
motorsport
organization
touches
thousands
of
people
in
the
west
and in
the
nation.
Cash
sponsors
such
as
host
resorts have
put
up
monies
to
attract
participation
and
attendance
to
SNORE's
event.
Without
the
necessary
liability coverage, BLM
is
unable
to
schedule
the
event."
"Since
there
have been
no
claims filed against
the
(
non-
profit)
club
in
the
past
ten
years,
this fact
should
be
loo
ked
upon
favorably as a
good
risk,
and
the
fact
that
BLM
approves
and
regulates
the

should
also

This
letter
is
to
let
you
know
our
position
on
your
proposed
Class restructuring.
We
DO
NOT
want
Classes
combined;
it
is
unfair
to
all
effected.
There
are a lot
of
rumors
going
around
as
to
which
classes will be
combined
with
which.
Our
concern
at
this time
is
Class 2, because it effects us
directly.
We
have been racing Class 2
for
about
ten
years,
and
got
into
this
sport
with family
and
friends
in
mind.
With
Class Z
there
is
an
extra seat in
the
car
for
people
on
our
team
as a
reward
for the
hard
work
it takes
to
prepare
a
car
for
a race.
We
feel we have
picked
a
competitive
class
and
built,
at
great expense, a
competitive
car.
Now
we find we will
be
grouped
with
Class 1 cars, which are
similar in design,
but
on
the
average, faster
and
lighter.
We
literally have
no
chance
of
winning
such
a race.
Nciw,
how
can
we
be
competitive
enough
to
get new
sponsors,
and,
if
we
remove
our
passenger seat, as
some
have
suggested,
how
do
we reward
our
support
people?
During
one
period
in last year's racing
schedule we had six
memb
ers in
HORA
alone. Have
you
given
any
thought
to
that
loss?
Being
members,
I feel
you
should
have involved us in
your
decisions
to
reorganize.
Our
input
from
Class
2
is
an
important
one,
not
only
for this
season
of
racing,
but
in
the
future
as well.
We
enjoy racing with
both
SCORE
and
HORA,
and
we
do
it for the fun
and
excitement,
not
for
whomever
it
is
twisting
your

drawing for starting

was held the Friday
of
the

137

This

the

is
a four

affair
over
a

now
marked
for pre-running. A new overall winner is a
good
bet
for
1986,
since
the

THE AUSTRALIAN
ENDURO
off
road
race was completely
dominated
by Craig
Martin,
the
reigning Australian
off
road
champion.
The
Enduro
is
the
longest
and
richest
and
toughest
off
road
race in
the
country,
and
it
runs
out
of
Kempsey,
New
South
Wales.
The
1986
edition
was
held
on
July
26-2
7.
Craig
Martin
is
the
Bridgestone
Tires
team
leader,
and
he
took
the
victory
by
nearly six
minutes
over
Newcastle
driver
Harold
Gill.
Martin,
who
drove
the
entire
510
kilometer
event,
and
navigator Paul Style
dominated
the
action in
their
turbo
buggy,
from
the
preliminary practice
rounds
to
a flag

victory in
the
endurance
contest
.
Only
66
of

182

saw
the
finish line in
the
tough
endurance
contest,
which
ran
over
mountain
and
forest trails,
and
through
gullies
and
rivers in
the
Macleay Valley.
American
driver Steve Kelley, in a six
liter
Chevy
Blazer,
ran
well
up
with the leaders for seven laps.
Then
a
broken

box
put
him

THE SECOND
ANNUAL
SCORE BAJA SAFARI will
be
a dandy
chance for
many
off
roaders
to
sample
the
exciting
terrain
of
the
Baja race
route
without
the
need
for
a high speed vehicle.
The
first Safari last year was a
big success,
with
the
contestants
starting after
the
racers left Ensenada,
and
ending
their
trek
at
Camalu,
where they
then
returned
to
Ensenada
on
the
pavement.
The
1985
Safari
drew
a variety
of
vehicles
from
a
4WD
Rolls
Royce
to
a
two
seat
pre-runner.
The
vehicles
must
be
street
legal,
but
any
model. Prudently,
the
rig
should
have
some
off
road
prep
done.
This
year
the
Baja
1000
goes
from
Ensenada
to
La P
az,
and
once
again
th
e
Safari teams will follow the racers
out
of
Ensenada
on
Thursday
morning,
November
6.
The
Safari will follow
the
race
route
through
Tres
Hermanos,
Valle
Trinidad,
Mike's
Sky
Ranch,
Camalu,
and
continue
sciuth
through
San
Quintin
and
El
Rosario
. Pressing
on,
the
route
goes
past
Laguna Chapala,
through
El
Arco
and
into
San
Ignacio.
With
450
miles
done,
San
Ignacio
will
provide
a
re
st
break
for
the
Safari
teams, with food, showers,
and
maintenanc
e time available.
On
the
restart,
the
Safari
will
follow
the
pavement
to
Santa
Rosalia
on
the
Sea
of
Cortez,
and
continue
south
through
M ulege
and
Lor
eto.
From
there
it
is
about
200
miles
to
La Paz,
the
tour's
end
on
Friday,
November
7.
The
Safari
is
a time-speed
distance
type
ofcontest,
not
a race,
and
if
the
concept
of
driving the Baja
1000
course
is
intriguing, get all

THE ARIZONA DESERT RACING ASSOCIATION
introduced
a
somewhat
controversial
rule
last
summer,
front
rubber
bumpers
for all race
cars.
The
rule
came in
response
to
nine
years
of
bent
cars, many meetings
and
squabbles. Originally all
three
divisions, Pro,
Sportsman
and
Beginner, were
required
to
have
the
rubber
front
bumper.
The
rule has since been modified
to
exclude
the
Pro
Division
.
Some
drivers have suggested
that
the
rubber
bumpers
should
be
mounted
front
and
rear.
The
rules are still in
the
forming
stage
on
th
at
question,
along with
the
type
of
material
to
be
used.
It
will be
interesting
to
see
if
the
rule
can
cut
down
the
sometimes
extensive damage
done
by an
overtaking
driver
whose
"horn
doesn't
work"
or
"couldn't
see in
the
dust
.''
Apparently
the
Pros
are
on
their
own,
but
the rule includes an item
calling for disqualification
if
a serious
bump,
resulting in
bent
tubing,
protest
is
upheld.
Also
the
rule states
that
bumping
that
causes only slight damage will
result
in an a
utomatic
last place finish.
These
rules affect
both
the
Sportsman
and
Begi~ner Divisions,
that
run
at different times in the
ADRA
events.

with 1200cc engines installed.
Neil Phillips was close in second
place in
th
e class.
Rich
Minga
flew his
brightly
painted
Chenowth
Magnum
to the
official
victory
in the
Challenge
Class
that
saw
some
good
racing
among
the 15
starting
cars.
The
15 Challenge cars had a
good race, better
than
what
·
show
s
on
the charts.
Danny
Ashcraft
had
his Raceco
out
front
on
the first lap,
and
he
stayed
there
for all ten laps.
Keeping close was Rich Minga in
his brightly painted
Chenowth.
Rus
s
Winkler
was
third
by lap 2,
and he stayed close
to
Minga,
followed by Daryl Nustad.
To
the rear the field
didn't
spread
out
much
among the
top
ten,
but
Ashcraft
and
Minga
put
som
e
lapped cars between
them
and
the
other
contenders.
On
lap 8
Nustad
got
past
Winkler,
who
was having
some
troubles, and
Mike Burns moved
up
too
.
At
the finish
Dan
Ashcraft
won
the
class
and
Rich Minga was close in
second.
r;r
second,
Mustard
was close,
followed by Kolt
and
Scott
Taylor,
another
driver
from
Illinois. Texan Kevin
Cherry
stalled,
but
got
moving again,
and
missing
on
the next lap were
Steve Kelley, Jim Fishback, Jr.
and
Tim
McDonnell. Midway,
Castle still led,
but
Taylor
was
now
second, with
Jeff
Probst
right
behind
him, Noel was
out
with suspension woes, Kolt
dropped
to
fourth
followed by
Mustard
and
Coyne. Things
stayed
pat
through
lap
6,
except
the new Elrod Mirage
moved
into
sixth ahead
of
Coyne
.
Scott
Taylor
lost time
on
lap 5,
Castle
had
a huge lead
and
Jeff
Probst
had
just
as
big a lead
over
Kolt,
who
was
just
ahead
of
Elrod
and
John
Sprague.
On
the
next
tour
Taylor
moved
up
into
fourth
, right
on
Kolt's
tail,
and
Sprague was close also, while
Mustard
faded with a rear flat.
Kolt did
not
finish
the
last lap.
Up
front
Brad Castle slowed,
and
Jeff
Probst
sailed
past
to
win
the
heat
in his Berrien Laser.
Scott
Taylor
also passed the former
leader
to
take
second
in his
Eliminator, Castle
ended
up
third
in
the
Raceco
.
John
Sprague was next, followed by
Jimmy Nichols,
and
Mustard
nursed
his flat tire
to
sixth place.
After
another
round
of
bikes,
trikes
and
quads,
four
classes in
one
race were
on
the
grid.
The
six
Class 5s, nine
5-1600s,
a pair
of
Class
9s
and
15 Challenger cars
made
a hefty field, starting in
that
order.
The
two
matching
number
series
made
it
tough
to
keep
track
of
all
four
classes.
While
it was
no
cakewalk,
Tony
Kujala led
from
wire
to
wire overall
and
in Class 5 in his
Greg
Diehl Baja Bug. Fellow
Arizona
driver
Pete
Sohren
stayed right with Kujala until late
in
the
10
lap race when his engine
went
sour.
Sohren
held
on
to
take
second
overall, despite, in
September 1986
his
words
"total
meltdown"
of
the
engine.
Faithful
readers
might recall
that
these two led
most
of
the race last year
as
well,
but
Kujala crashed in
the
hay
just
before
the
finish line,
Sohren
had
already lost his power,
and
Wayne
Demonja, from
Colorado
was the surprise winner.
This
year
Demonja
ran a close third all
the way
to
the
finish line.
From
San
Jose,
Jeff
Elrod
held
up
California's
honor
by running all
the way in fourth.
In
the
5-1600
action the field
sorted

and

and
Glenn
Harris was
running
second
in 7S
in a Mazda,
and
Willie
Valdez,
coming
back
from
a
start
line roll
over, had his Ranger
up
to
third
.
As
the ten laps
droned
on
, the
field
thinned
. Missing early were
John
Randall, Max
Norri
s
and
Jim Travis
from
7S
,
and
now
Valdez gave it up, taking
third
in
class with four laps completed.
Up
front
Roger Mears
opened
it
up,
then
backed
out
of
his
overheating Nissan
to
take
an
easy overall
and
Class 7 win, his
first win in
some
time
and
Roger
was a happy man, since his
own
crew
had
built
the
truck.
John
Swift also covered
ten
laps for
second
overall
and
in Class 7,
while
Larry
Ragland
made
another
pit
stop
with a flat,
but
he
did
get in nine laps for
third
in
class,
and
he was moving faster
than
anyone
at
the finish.
Third
overall
and
the
Class
7S
winner was Paul
Simon
in
the
Ford
Ranger, the last
of
the
ten
lap finishers.
Glenn
Harris
did
nine
rounds
for
second
in class.
The
7
4x4
ba
ttle was still tight
midway with
Gowland
leading
Mike
Randall,
Conner
and
the
McDonald
Chevy.
Gowland
vanished
on
lap 7 along with
Randall,
and
Jim
Conner
took
the lead, well ahead
of
the
Chevy,
although
both
got
in
nine
laps.
Conner
was a surprise winner in
the Nissan
and
said it was his first
win at Riverside. But,
Jim
had
not
competed
here
since 1979.
After
a
round

for the
entertaining Odyssey racers, the
next bash was for
the

Classes 1, 2
and
