MICKEY THOMPSON'S CHAMPIONSHIP GRAN PRIX -ROUND 1WO Glenn Harris Wins-All the Marbles at San Diego By Homer Eubanks Photos: Trackside Photo Enterprises Glenn Harris won every race he started in San Diego, taking the Class 7 Trophy Dash, his heat race and he took a hard e~rned victory in the truck main event in the Mazda. Frank Arciero, Jr. is a most versatile driver, and he won th·e main event for Super 1'600s easily, was third in his heat and ,, second in the Trophy Dash in his Chenowth Magnum. Page 30 March 1987 Monte Crawford won the 1986 UltraStotk championship on .points, and he showed his winning style in the VW bodied car by winning the heat race by a good distance. Living in southern California usually means·plenty of sunshine and the usual warm weather that accompanies it. So, why would anyone travel hours, in bumper to bumper traffic, to sit outside at San Diego's Jack Murphy Stadium with 40,000 otherwise normal individuals, in thirty degree weather, for three hours? Round two of Mickey Thomp-son's Off Road Championship Gran Prix, that's what! It might be cold waiting on the first green flag to be raised, but once· the action starts; die hard fans are treated with the hottest racing · action anywl;iere in the world. Short course racing is designed to pit racers and their machinery against something fashioned after Mother. Nature.'s worst terrain. Once flagged off, the racers are greet_ed with a long · right hand sweeper that becomes the fastest corner on the track on their next time a~ound. Just before entering the back straight, a jump sends the vehicles skyward where they land just in time to sail over the next jump, and then into the sharp right hand turn. Once going in the opposite direction, five stutter bumps are taken in two successive leaps. Three evenly spaced jumps follow this and then a short sweeper heads to the left. If the driver decides to take the inside line he is greeted with a couple of small bumps that could throw the vehicle sideways. Back down a short straight are two more jumps with the second jump right wh,ere one would want to start braking! This causes the vehicles to fly into the switchback that has a couple of knots thrown in just to confuse things before heading back to the start/ finish line. After exiting the switchback, a small jump gets things going so the vehicle can land just in time to grab traction over the large jump that serves as the finish line. The four fastest qualifiers in the Grand National Sport Truck Class were the first to take the field for a trophy dash. Glenn Harris used his pole position to . move inside to take the lead once the green flag came out, putting Steve Millen second until Millen rammed-into Harris' door, pushing him out in the left sweeper. Harris poured on the gas over the rough section and shot past Millen like he was standing still. Roger Mears got into the action but wasn't able to get around Millen. Danny Thompson was trailing in a distant fourth. Glenn Harris went on to win in the Mazda, with Steve Millen holding second in the Toyota. Third went _to Roger Mears, Nissan, and Danny Thompson was fourth in the Chevrolet. Next the four fastest Super 1600 qualifiers lined up for their attempt at the trophy dash. Bob Gordon said goodbye when the flag came out, with Frank Arciero taking second, followed by Greg George and Mike · Withers. Arciero was able to get · close before the first lap was over, but Gordon wouldn't have anything to do with him taking his place, and immediately put several car lengths between the two Chenowths. Arciero was able to get within striking distance on the last corner to make it an exciting race, but Gordon held on for the trophy .. Frank Arciero was a very. close sernnd, with Mike Withers third and Greg George fourth. · The Odysseys contested the first group of heat races with 19 cars lining up for the first round. Coming from the third row, Ron Pierce ran. away from the crowd, with a battle for second place develop'ing between Eddie Morris and Rory Holladay. By the second lap Holladay had put himself into . second and was closing in on Pierce. Ken Kazarian drives a most tidy looking VW bodied UltraStock, and.he hopped into third spot in both the heat race and the main event. Dusty nmes

Greg George came back from a win in the UltraStock Main to drive his Funco right into second overall in the Class 10 mai~ event as well. Defending Class 10 points champion ·rommy Croft wanted to win in front of his home town crowd, but he ended up third in the . tight main event. Up front often, Bob Gordon hopped his Class 10 Chenowth into the money, with a 5th spot in the first heat and 4th in the feature. There were over 20 cars in the Super 1600 main event. Tommy· "Cocktail Time" Croft sat on the pole with Randy Rhinehart heside him. The second row held Frank Arciero and- Billy .Beck. Twenty-three other drivers watched as Croft was first to exit the first turn with Rhinehart anj Frank Arciero right hehind him. Racing in front of his hcime town crowd, Croft wanted to run away with the show, hut first he had to get rid of Randy Rhinehart and Frank Arciero. Rhinehart moved alongside at every straight; then, on the third lap, when Rhinehart had visions of glory, Frank Arciero took his spot. Rhinehart was not going to give up and hegan pressuring Arciero, hut then Greg George entered the picture and he · hegan applying pressure to Rhinehart. The UltraStock winner at Anaheim, Jeff Elrod had mechanical woes the next Saturday, but managed to finish fourth in the main event. Driving the Toyota truck for the injured Ivan Stffwart, Frank Arciero went from 1winning in Class 10 to fifth spot in /he truck main event. Randy-Rbinehart got siJeways and rolled, to put him out of the running. Greg Grnrge got inside Croft on the left hand sweeper, hut had some lapped traffic hetween him and the leader, Frank Arciero. Arciero was the full length of the hack straight ahead of George with two laps to go. Croft had fallen hack several lengths and had a lapper hetw~en him and George. , · Frank Arciero got the white tlag and had plenty of empty real l'State ahead of him as he took the L-asy line into victory circle. Greg Geprge was second, and Tommy Croft finished . a close third. Fourth went to Boh Gordon and Brad Castle was fifth. The finale of the event v..:as the Grand National Sport Truck main event. After winning the trophy dash and his heat race, Glenn Harris had to l:x_, on the mind cif Steve Millen, v.:ho has co~tinued his domination of this class since last season. JeffHuher had the pole with Roger Mears in the Nissan next to hin1. The second row was made .up of . Harris and Millen, with Al Unser and Frank Arcino in the third row. With a much improved Jeep Comanche over the previous week, Al Unser, Jr. had some fun and took third in his heat race and sixth in the main. Subbing tor Sherman Balch, Bob Gordon made his Class 7 debut in the Nissan, and did finish fourth in his heat race and eighth in the main. Du_sty Times With all 37,405 in attendance watching, Glenn Harris cut off Millen from his dutside spot to slip.into second, ~l·hile teammate Jeff Huher tool< the lead. But, Mears was out for hlood, and he and Harris were fonder to fender. Glenn Harris too~ the lead from Huher after the lback straight. Harris had the Mazda on line, and it ~-as working gbod!

With two laps to go Millen closed to within five truck lengths · and Harris was facing lapped traffic. Millen brought his Toyota into striking distance as the white flag came out. Harris was keeping to the inside and put the Mazda's· suspension to the test. Glenn Harris went on to win, making it a clean sweep for Mazda, with Steve Millen breathing down his neck. In last .year's points battle, Harris made his presence known, and appears to be again the thorn in Toyota's paw this year. Roger Mears .g6t.t-the Nissan to hold on for third place, followed by Jeff Hu her and Frank Arciero.

Lou Peralta phoned to say that the race for both off road cars and motorcycles attracted 76 entries of which 73 started the event in San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico. The desert route took its toll, however, as 37 finished the race. Of interest is that 4 7 percent of the entry came from Mexican natonal racers, and over 50 percent of.the prize money stayed in Mexico. First overall in cars and first in Pro Open Class was the Raceco driven-by. Perry McNeil and Rich Minga. They covered the 240 mile course in 5 hours, 11 minutes and 50 seconds, and won $1080.00. But, the biggest money winner of the race was Ernesto Arambula, who raced his Baja Bug in Pro Stock, the biggest class. !Arambula won the class and a neat$1800.00.' In the bike section of the race the team of Paul Ost!:lo and Joe McCormack came all the way from the northf,est, Washington arid Oregon, to race their Honda. They b~ought nearly a dpzen folks with them! ran on m;:mey borrowed to get to Mexico, and this Yahoo RacmgTeam won overall with a time of4:58.59. Look for a full report oh this race in the Aptil issue. · · . DEAN SUNDAHL h1s won an uncounta~le number of races on an ATV. He has a perfect record I at the Score Parker fOO, taking his seventh straight class victory last mont~ by mere seconds, riding a 350cc Yamaha Banshee. Sundahl has also won his class in all other Store events at' least three times, and~this year he is going to try to extend that record by going solo in all the Score races this seaso7, including the Baja 1000.

Yokohama 6·50 Club Report By Jean Calvin The Parker 400 entry was huge at 419 starters, and 333 of them were in the car classes. In the mob were 25 starters in the 6~50 Club · that we know of. We suspect there are more, as some over 50 drivers did not list their ages on the entry form. So, we are going to list here every one of the 25 we found on the entry print out. If you are eligible for the 6-50 Club, being 50 years of age or more and the driver of record in one or the car classes at Parker, drop us a note at 5331 Derry Ave., Suite 0, Agoura, CA 91301. Then you too will be an instant member of the 6-50 Club with the possibility 'of being one of the high points drivers at the end of the season and earn a gold, silver or bronze medal. The system counts a driver's best six out of nine events during the season. For 1987, the events are the eight Score/HORA desert series races plus the SNORE 25.0 in September. To join, all you have to do is let us know your status, if we missed finding · you on the entry list. There is no cost to you, just a fun points series for mature drivers. There were three 6-50 Club racers in Class 1 at Parker. Frank Snook, who started the season by rolling the Raceco in California, teamed with Eric Arras to finish fifth in class. Bob Renz, with Dick C lark co-driving his Raceco, arrived eighth in class. Not doing so well was Cecil Wright, with his son Jeff co-driving the Hi Jumper powered by a Mazda engine.

With Henry Bergdahl co-driving, Danny drove the Porsche powered Raceco not only to second in Class 2 but second overall, beating all the bikes. Letner is the current points leader in 6-50 standings . for 1987. · Gregg Symonds and his son David had an hour's w6rth of trouble in Calffornia, but they got it together to finish eighth out of the 40 that started in Class 2. Corky McMillin had a pair of good laps going, but vanished on the final round in Arizona. Floridian Jimmie Crowder, with Californian Steve · Martin co-driving, rolled his Raceco early in the game, then retired on the first Arizona loop. Wayne Morgan did not finish in California, nor did Raymond Tierheimer. Jim Temple and his son Mark had engine trouble on the first loop, and lost it all early in Arizona. There were three starters in Class 1-2-1600, and two of them finished in this 56 car starting field . Dave Fessenden and his son got their Chenowth home 21st out of the 30 finishers. Collin Dunnam also finished, 26th in -class, but Monty Stone only, managed to cover the California loop. One of the two starters in 5-1600 action saw the finish lin~. another father and son team.

O J t, early were Nels~n Tomlinson,Jlim Venable/ Stan Gilbert and 9ick Walker. Three of the five viejos in the Challenge Class saw the checkered flag. Doing the best was the 6-50 team .of Ed and Hugh McLean, in for 11th spot in their Chenowth. Herman DeNunzio finished 15th with Mark DeNunzio co-di riving, and Dave Girdner and Roy Perfect finished 20th out of the 46 starters. Mike Leon had a good pair of laps in his Challenge car before retiring, and John Kisner got through California, and not much farther. Having won Class 10 at Parker two years in a row, Jack Irvine, with Kit Trenholm co-driving, ran out 1of luck and failed to complete tHe California course with engine woes. Eleven out of 25 is not a bad average for finishers, and it is keen to see so many mature drivers doing ·so well _at Park~r, whic~ is basically a pair of sprmt race~. · Danny Letner leads the points standings for the 6-s:o Club with 60 big ones from Parker. Frank Snook is second with 45 points. and Bob Renz is now third with 33; Ed McLean is close with 28 points, and Andy DeVercelly is fifth at 25 points.

It is the first HDRA event of the year, and the logistics will be more simple than they we~e at Parker. MONTE CARLO I (from page 44) The two wheel drive cars were nowhere in the hunt. Small troubles delayed the Renault team and gradually the Group A World Champion, Kenneth Eriksson, edged ahead. Eriksson's . new teammate Erwin Weber was impressive in his firstlever outing with a front drive car. The Italians lost their etlge in the Production Car broup N category, th'eir cars ~elayed by accidents and tire troubles, but the Group was won by a French driver, Bertrand Balas, again in a Lancia. In-the end Lancia's orders were clear, and Kankkunen was the loser. The W or Id Champion told to throw away the rally? "Yes", explained Fiorio. "We found a sporting way to please the public." At the finish Massimo Biasion/Tiziano Siviero won the Monte Carlo, about a minute ahead of Lancia team~ates Juha Kankkunen/ J uha·Piironen. Walter Rohrl/Christian Geist-dorfer were over thrbe minutes back in the Audi 200 Quattro, . almost five minutes ahead of Stig Blomqvist/Bruno Berglund in the Ford Sierra 4x4. lngvar Carlsson /Per Carlsson were another six minutes d1own in the Mazda 323 .4x4, fo1llowed in about 13 minutes by the VW Golf of Kenneth Eriksson/Peter Diekmann. ~ March 1987 . I Major Changes in. Store for:,, Score Great·Mojave 150 · Competitors · I . 1SCORE lnternational's 3rd Annual Great Mojave 250 desert ra~e will feature several signifi-cant race course and format changes, accordipg to Race Director Steve Kassanyi. This traditional off-road race is held near the desert crossroad com-munity of Lucerne Valley, California, and is scheduled for the weekend of April 3, 4 & 5. A drawing to determine starting pcisitions and numbers will be held at SCORE's Westlake Village office 6n March 16. · In a major departure from customary class starting order, the four-wheeled classes of open wheel cars and trucks will have an opportunity to start first on April 4 at approximately 6:00 a.m. The motorcycle and ATV classes are scheduled to start at approximately 11 :00 a.m. This starting order change retlects calculations of antici-pated lap times, with emphasis pla'ced on the safety of the motor-cycle ATV competitors. Accord-ing to Kassanyi, the motorcycle and A TV start will take place while the four-wheeled drivers are well into their third lap around a revised 83 mile route in I . , the Johnson Valley Open Area. An element of safety enters this calculation in that it is better and safer to have a motorcycle or A 1JY pass a race car or truck, rather than the other way around. This change also considers another factor, that of the privateer racer. Rather than having to take time away from one's work, motorcycle and A 1]V competitors have been given an opportunity to complete all !pre-race functions and go racing in the same day. Facilities for registration, technical inspection and contingency veri-cation will be made available on race day morning, allowing adequate time for competitors to reach the staging area at the Start/ Finish. Although the pre-race func-. tions and festivities are scheduled to take place in town, the Start/ Finish has been moved to the desert at Coug.ar Buttes, a distance of approximately ten miles from the center of Lucerne Valley. The new race course is considerably shorter than in prior years, and was designed . with intent to provide better spectator viewing and simplified timing and scoring operations. The Start/ Finish area will have ample pit space for all teams and racers, and there will be many concession booths offering a wide variety of foods and beverages for racers and spec-•tators alike. The race course will be marked and open for pre-running one week prior to race day, beginning on March 28. Important routing changes include identical laps, significantly less road crossings than i·n prior years, and less checkpoints. Competitors regard-less of class will find the race course to be quite challenging. Of the 83 mile total loop length, 28 miles are new.
