® TOYOTA Technology OnA Fast Track called it the Toyota 400. They changed the name of the race from the Mint 400 to the Nissan 400. But they couldn't change the results. Toyota's Ivan "Ironman" Stewart rode off with his second consecutive overall win in Las Vegas, leaving almost an hour's worth of dust between our tough truck and their tough luck. So that's why it would have made more sense to call the race something else. Like maybe the Toyota 400. Or even the Ironman 400. Those other guys may have bought the Mint 400, but we still own it.

The defending points champions turned the rugged course in just under 13 hours and they won the I eight car class by a full 100 mile lap and several more minutes. , Congratulations go to this team working with new equipment and 1 making it work. The trusty Ford Ranger of Johnson and Johnson likes the rugged Nevada desert and the pair of former mini truck points champions romped through the 16 truck class in fine style, winning by an hour and 25 minutes over another Ford. For Chuck Johnson it was his first victory on this course, and he firmly feels he can say "I won the Mint" despite the new name. /\t DUSTY TIMES THE FASTEST GROWING OFF ROAD MONTHLY IN THE COUNTRY!! □ 1 year - $15.00 □ ~ears· - $25.00 D 3 _years - $35.00 Take advantage of your subscription bonus •..

Soap Box ••• PHYSICAL ACTION! Since we received death threats from· Earth First, The Sahara Club has formed a special division of big, ugly desert racers called the Sahara Clubbers. This elite squad will be setting up tempting targets for Earth First to attack ... and will make sure that any illegal actions are 'firmly subdued'. .SAHA CLUB YESI You know that the Sierra Club is trying to stop off-road use dead in the water. They won't be happy until we're herded into small fenced-in areas and have to pay a fee and fill out forms to have any sort of recreation. Their ultimate goal is the elimination of all off-road vehicles ... and that includes bicycles, campers and wheelchairs. HOW CAN THEY DO THIS TO US? They do it with cubic dollars and a horde of greedy lawyers. The Sierra Club has 1.2 million members, and the average membership fee is now up to $33 per year. That means they start the year with a war chest of THIRTY-THREE MILLION BUCKS! WHAT IS THE SAHARA CLUB? Formed by Rick Sieman and Louis McKey, the SAHARA CLUB was formed to fight the , Sierra Club head-on, just the way they fight.We plan to use the legal system like a battering ram and to get more than our fair share of media coverage. WHO ARE THESE GUYS? Louis McKey, also known as the Phantom Duck of the Desert, has been fighting to keep our public land free since 197 4. Rick Sieman was the first editor of Dirt Bike over 20 years ago, and is now a professional off-road racer on the SCORE/HD RA circuit, as well as a writer for several off-road publications. Together, they won a landmark case in 1981 that kept all existing roads and trails open for public use. Lou and Rick have been battling for your right to use your land for a long time ... and now they're ready to turn pro and go for the throat full time! WHY WE NEED THE SA-HARA CLUB. A lot of good people are out there trying to keep land open for public use, and without exception, they are well-meaning amateurs. They think that writing letters and attending meetings will get the job done. Wrong. After a decade of this, more land than ever is being taken away from us. There's only one way to get our fair share, and that's to use the same techniques that the enemy uses. No one is better qualified to do this than Lou and Rick. OUTRAGEOUS INFORMA-TION! That's what you get when you become a Sahara Club member. In our first news letter, we printed names, phone numbers and addresses of some radical Earth First members. These are the terrorist scum who set deadly booby traps that could kill you or your family.We feel it's time that these scum were exposed to the light of day. We'll lay iton the line and tell you which politicians are backed by eco-freaks and which ones are fair. We even infiltrated an Earth First meeting and taped those wharf rats in action. Want to see how Earth First makes deadly traps to kill or maim you? We have that information and will make it available to you. WHEN'S THE LAST TIME YOU FELT GOOD ABOUT OUR SPORT? Are you sick and tired of making excuses for having honest fun off-road? Do your own industry 'leaders' make you feel guilty about disturbing a patch of sand? What's more important ... a kid sharing fun off-road with his family, or closing off millions of acres so we don't disturb a tortoise? Stand up to the wimps and to the enemy . . . join the Sahara Club and put some pride back in your life! WE CAN DO IT! There are literally millions of off-roaders in this great country, and most of them are busy making a living, working, raising a family and coping with everyday problems. And while they cope with the daily grind, .their recreational land is being taken away at a staggering rate. If we can get one million folks to join the Sahara Club, we can fight toe to toe against the people who are trying to take your land away. Attack now, legally, and feel proud about it. Rick and Lou are putting everything they have on the line once again. It's now up to you. Join the Sahara Club. It's about time! The flyer printed above has been circulating in the high desert, around the towns that benefit from off road activity in Califor-nia, maybe elsewhere. While some of the statements may just border on the truth, we do know that "Earth Firsters" strung a barricade across a tunnel on the Barstow to Vegas route just hours before the race a couple of years ago. If the course opening crew hadn't discovered it there would have been some badly injured racers in the first wave. Dusty Times does not intend to become political as we have many readers who also belong to the Sierra Club and similar organiza-tions. We don't condone their efforts to legislate us into an urban existence, so we will personally support the Sahara Club. It is your choice. A one year membership to the Saraha Club costs $20 and includes regular newsletters, Sahara Club Bumper Sticker and Membership Card.

SCCA announced recently that Keiper Recaro is sponsoring the National and Divisional Pro Rallies, National Touring, and Course rallies in 1990. R.D. (Rick) Margolis of SCCA said, "Recaro has chosen the SCCA Rally Series because it is here that the quality of a seat can give the ralliest the competitive edge. Our goal is to prove to the competitor that Recaro manufactures the best seat in the industry. By 1991 we expect to see all of the winners in Recaro seats." Recaro Sales Manager Ken Alden will guide the program that provides the SCCA membership with purchasing incentives to buy Recaro seats. "We have broken ground on what it takes to stimulate race seat sales, and the goal is to reach the entire membership while directly benefiting the SCCA ralliest through series sponsorship." Get all the details from your local SCCA region or Diana Sprague in Denver (303) 779-6622. THE SECOND SILLY SEASON;· The off road pro drivers have been jumping from team to team like champion frogs in Calaveras County. Early in the year Steve McEachern retired from his desert ride in a Walker Evans Dodge and Ivan Stewart's first born, Brian Stewart got the Dodge ride in Class 8. Then Jack Johnson vanished from the Nissan team, and in the San Felipe race Mark McMillin will make his trucking debut in the Class 1, now 2WD, Nissan. A more recent change in the Walker Evans team roster is that Rob MacCachren will drive only the 7S desert truck this season and Glenn Harris, late of Mazda fame, has replaced Rob MacCachren in the stadium Jeep. In stadium racing seasoned motocross and former Super 1600 champion Tommy Croft, has parked his Texas built 1600 and joined Mike Lesle Racing and Jeep Motorsports to compete in the UltraStock class in the MTEG series. The Lesle / Croft duo is stepping in to fill the seats of the 1989 UltraStock Champion Lloyd Castle, who broke his arm at the Anaheim opener, and son Kent Castle, who also had the misfortune of breaking his arm at Round 3 in Seattle. "We're running out of arms!" exclaimed Lesle. Tommy and I ar:e going to do our best to protect the team's position in the points chase. The Cherokees are ready to go and we've been doing some testing during the ·past couple of weeks in California. We 're both looking forward to this new racing challenge." THE TOYOTA ONE LAP OF AMERICA got under way April 14 in Long Beach, CA. Presented byTexaco/ Havoline the grueling coast to coast driving challenge finishes on April 22, the day of the Long Beach Grand Prix, with the top four cars on points running the Grand Prix course to determine final points. Entry is open to all autos, light trucks and vans street legal in the USA, and IMSA sanctions the event. A maximum of three on board crew members is allowed. Along with running the ope:1 road from border to border and coast to coast, there are a number of stops at famous race track and hill climb facilities around the country. It is quite a ride, meant only for the hardy in body and spirit. This year the first national charity for children with cancer will be initiated with the event. Designation of "One Lap for Kids", a charity begun by Hartford plastic surgeon and auto enthusiast Dr. Stephen Brown, as the official beneficiary was announced here by Brock Yates, founder of the epic 8000 mile competition. They are soliciting donations based on the total miles completed by one lap entrants. All of it will go directly to the care of children, because all administrative time and costs are donated. For more information on One Lap or the One Lap for Kids, contact Glenn Campbell, Shelby Autos, 12444 E. Putnam, Whittier, CA 90602. TOYOTA TRUE GRIT POINTS: Veteran driver Jerry Penhall of Costa Mesa, CA leads the Toyota True Grit points, his first points lead in his 18 year career in off road racing. Penhall, the older brother of former world speedway motorcycle champion and actor Bruce Penhall, moved from third to first in standings after the HORA Nissan 400, with an average speed of 54.70 mph. True Grit early leader Ivan Stewart slipped to ninth with an average speed of 48.83. Second overall and leader in the heavy metal division is Chris Minor of Hemet, CA at 54.07 mph in a Class 8 truck, and Spencer Low leads the mini metal c;livision averaging 45.96 mph in his 7S Nissan. In another prize category, Toyota's Milestone awards, the list of eligible drivers was pared to 51 after the Vegas race. Milestone awards are given to that handful of drivers who complete every racing lap of all eight events. DIVISIONAL RALLY RESULTS are coming in from around the country. In Michigan last February, Stuart and Joyce Sarasin won the Escanaba Eskypades in a Mazda over tough competition from Mike Purzycki and Dan Wernette, who were second in a Jeep, and national contender Guy Light and Gregory Brown in a Honda. The 162 mile event held 80 stage miles. The Cowhand Classic I from the Texas Region was a rally sprint with a 1.3 mile · course run 6 times. Dave Thomas and Dan Pillow won in a Mazda RX 7, nearly a minute up on second placing Tom French and Dave Frender in a Saab Sonnett. Roger Gibson and Robert Logue were third. The Cowhand Classic III the same day was also 6 short stages and Thomas and Pillow won again followed by French and Frender. Jim Seymour and Don Hanke took third in a Chevy Camaro. Moving into March the Davis Creek Rally ran out of Atlanta with 20 stages on a 53.04 mile event. Charles McCrary and Ray Blount won convincingly in a Mazda followed by Dave Burden, VW and Gary and Susanne D'Abate in a Mazda. None of the others in the eight entry event finished the course. The Cherokee Challenge in Oklahoma was more of PRO Rally instead of a sprint. Over 72 of the 232 miles·were stages and 17 stages were scored. Dean Blagowsky and Ralph Starr won by a good margin in their Dodge, John McGrigg and Regan Smolkovich were second in a Plymouth followed by David Whalen and Nicholas Leone, AMC. Only four of the six starters finished the event. It is hard to imagine why these rallies do not draw entry. It must be discouraging for organizers to put so much work into an event and have just a half dozen cars show up. What's wrong out there in the heartland of America? BILSTEIN MADONNA AW ARD for the seventh consecutive year has been presented to Toyota Motor Sales for winning the Manufacturer's Cup Championship for the 1989 Mickey Thompson stadium series, The Madonna award is a limited edition cast sculpture symbolizing motorsports excellence. It is awarded annually to teams and drivers who have won professional championships running on Bilstein gas pressure shock absorbers. When the Madonna first came to off road racing it went to individual drivers, but these days it goes to teams. (mDTe TRAIL NOTES on page 31) Dusty Times

~ ~~ Dave Ashley's Class 3-winning Ford Bronco. Tires: Goodyear Wrangler AT radials. Nobody's truck finished in mint condition at this year's 400. In fact, of the 300 vehicles that entered the Nissan 400, only 109 finished. And the infamous Rock Garden looked like a parking lot. But Dave Ashley's big Ford Bronco and Scott Douglas' rugged Jeep Cherokee took on the razor-sharp cracked volcanic slag of the Rock Garden as ifit were Pebble Beach. And their Goodyear Wrangler radials helped both drivers roll on to victory. It was Dave Ashley's sixth consecutive Class 3 win. And Scott Douglas' second Class 6 win injust two attempts. If you're looking for tough tires, get a set of Goodyear Wrangler radials. And rock on. You'll know why we say: The best light truck tires in the world have Goodyear written all over them. Remember: tread lightly. If you drive off-road, stay on existing paths. Don't forge any new ones. America is a beautiful country. Let's keep it that way. · Scott Douglas' Class 6-winning Jeep Cherokee. Tires: Goodyear Wrangler AT radials. GOOD;ri'EAR THE BEST TIRES IN THE ·woRLD HAVE GOODYEAR WRITTEN ALL OVER THEM.

One that she told about you 're not racing off road, give Al herself involved her becoming car a call. sick, so sick that she threw up into Slowly, but surely, off roaders are becoming more aware of their environment, and of the result of their actions upon it. We are frequently reminded to "leave the desert cleaner than we find it", and to pack out our trash.We are asked to "Tread Lightly" by the BLM and· other conservationist groups, with good reason. It has become apparent that if we don't take care of the desert and other wild areas, no one will, and there would soon be mountains of trash, and no place to enjoy. As an off roader, a camper, a gardener and a conservationist, I keep my eyes peeled for literature with new ideas for environment-ally sound use of my share of the world. Recently, as I studied the shelves in the "nature" section of my local W aldenbooks store, I found a small publication that looked like a winner. And after reading it I have decided to recommend it to our readers. Off roaders often find them-selves camping. Or doing some-thing very like it at any rate, as they sit in the great outdoors for hours, waiting for their car to come around again, so they can wave it on or fix 'it. And sometimes, when they have been allowed to pre-run, as in Baja, they become genuine campers, combining the best of both worlds, and moving along the trail from camp site to camp site. But, this kind of camping has some drawbacks. Unless you are the owner of a motorhome, trailer or camper with a bathroom, and a huge holding tank, there gets to be a problem of what to do when nature calls. Even the huge holding tank can reach its limit if the pit crew is big enough and the race is long enough. I found a book that addresses that problem. Published by the Ten Speed Press, its title is."How To Shit In The Woods". Written by Kathleen Meyer, a river-runner and longtime outdoors-woman, the book is subtitled, "An environmentally sound approach to a lost art." · It's just that. Only 77 pages long in all, the book, nevertheless, gets to the heart of the matter, and does not mince words in the doing, Chapter Two will tell you about "Digging The Hole", while Chapter Five is titled "For Women Only: How Not To Pee In Your Boots". There's a wealth of practical information interspersed with what I can only call "earthy" humor, and some good reasons . for behaving in an ecologically sound manner as regards personal waste. Have a go at it. The book is priced at a moderate $5 .95, and is sized to fit into a glove compart-ment or purse handily. It would make a great gift. On another tack: in case you haven't come across these dates elsewhere, Marty Reid gave us a rundown of air dates and times for the off road races he's Whatever happened to . . .? Every once in a while, in a surge of nostalgia, we'll think of someone we haven't seen for years and wonder what's become of him. Old off roaders, really old ones, might occasionally recall Al Cadrobbi, an outspoken, conten-tious man who built transmissions that were bullet-proof, or as near as could be. Al had a little shop in North Hollywood, not far from Scott McKenzie and Don Arnett's Sandmaster, which was, at that time, the hub of off road racing. He built trannies for Bob Ferro, Gene Hirst, and John Johnson, among others, and he built my transmissions also, for several years. Al retired from the transmission business, moved to other areas, and did a variety of things, generally automotive, for years. He hasn't built an off road transmission since 1974. But just recently he opened up a new shop, A few weeks ago we learned some crucial part of the radio, and that Charlotte Corral had died rendered it useless.

HDRA NISSAN 400 Stewart Off To A Running Start, Takes Second Overall Win By Judy Smith Photos: Track.side Photo Enterprises It hasn't happened in a decade - the same man winning the race on the Mint 400 course two years in a row. It took the formidable talent and experience of Ivan Stewart and the reliability of his exotic Toyota to get the job done and he finished nearly an hour ahead of anyone else. Ivan Stewart displayed his formidable driving skill, com-bined with the exotic and high-tech one-off that goes by the name "Toyota pickup", to win the first annual Nissan 400, in north Las Vegas, the first weekend in March. With a new name, and a new spot on the calendar, the old Mint 400 lost some of its magic, but none of its nastiness. It was recognizably the Mint, once the drivers got out onto the course. But things had been different back in town the day before the race. The block-party atmosphere of the old Mint's Fremont Street Contingency Row was missing to a large extent, because, for one thing, it was not on Fremont Street. That had been the original plan, but the Las Vegas police didn't want the off roaders mixing it up with the picketers who'd taken over the block in front of one of the hotels, so they nixed the plan for this year. Instead, the whole Contingency Row was snaked into the parking lot of the Convention Center, a comfortable site, with many features that actually made it more pleasant than Fremont Street. For an example, there was easy, off-street parking for off-loading the race cars. But it wasn't the same without the oddly assorted downtown Las Vegas denizens wandering through. And there were no adjacent slot machines to take the quarters of wandering off road fans, no bars to hand out cooling libations, and no conven-ient, plush restrooms. It was not the same. There was no pre-running for the race this year, and as has become the rule, those who were serious about the race, and had· the greenbacks in their pockets, rented helicopters for a run around the course the day before the race, when the maps were handed out. But that kind of pre-run gives only a sense of direction unless a racer is already familiar with the trails, and can then piece things together from memory. Many miles of this year's event were on old, well used trails, and the newest thing about the course was that there was strictly limited pit access, and tightly controlled spectator access as well. In some areas no vehicles were to be permitted unless they had official pit passes, which were handed out to entrants sparingly, indeed. In other areas there were to be no vehicles, period. And in some . places no living bodies were ~Hawed, as some professional photographers found out to their sorrow, after they had hiked in several miles. These were photogs with the requisite arm bands and passes, no less. pre-run, in particular one of the racers who was later disqualified, because he'd hit a ribbon as he came out of the dust of a car he-was attempting to pass. He said if he'd known there was a ribbon in the area, he'd have never made the attempt. Once again, the HORA built a short-course race track in the center of the Speedrome's paved oval, so that spectators could sit comfortably in the grandstands and watch some driving displays, with a cool brew at hand, and be in no danger of despoiling the Nevada desert. That was report-; edly, the motivation for the short course track, and it probably worked, because the seats were full for many hours, as cars came through in a steady stream. They had to maneuver through a paved sweeper turn, a hairpin right, then a double jump or the big flying ramp, a left hairpin, another right, then the tightest left, and a short incline up to the finish line check. There were cash prizes up for the drivers who completed the longest jump from the big ramp, and many of them tried every lap, to the delight of the fans. The race started on the short course track, with the cars lined up two abreast, and taking the green flag every 45 seconds. That amount of time had been calculated as just enough to let the first two get to the last turn before the next two started, and for the most part it worked very well. One or two had fairly serious mechanical ailments on some portion of the track, but flagmen kept oncoming traffic from The HORA had spent many running into anyone, and in weeks completing a tortoise general, the start was more fun to census for the course and the watch than the old drag race adjacent desert, and any tortoise types, although, it's certain that burrows found near the marked the racers would rather have the course were marked off with old drag race down the strip. ribbons, and declared to be With four 101 mile laps ahead of "serious no-nos". If a driver hit them most would rather have one of the "turtle ribbons", he omitted the entertaining, but would be disqualified, with no potentially damaging, short recourse.

Rodney Hall and Jim Fricker had scant troubles to report with the new Dodge, only a self inflicted flat, and they were the happy winners in Class 4 and a smart eighth overall. =¾ ~ ,= _...;,%=··-~ .,_ The 1989 overall point champions Tom and Bob DeNault got a good start on 1990 points by winning the 53 car Class 1-2-1600, a convincing win, besting the field by a full 33 minutes. Roger Mears has found a winning combination for his Nissan. Roger led Class 7 all four laps and won handily by a full 20 minutes. ~ truck, who finished with no shocks. Stewart, whipped from driving a lap and a half with no power steering, was third, and then it was a long time before any more trucks came in. Gordon was next to finish, but after the next day's Competition Review Board meeting, found himself disqualified for running backwards on the course a short distance to get to his pit. In Class 10, the next group to take the flag, nine of the 32 starters couldn't make it through the first lap. Of the ones that made it, the fastest was the Mike and Jim Zupanovich Toyota powered JMR, with fast class lap at 2:25:16.5. They had only 19 seconds on second place Scott Flamson and Richard Spangler in a Rabbit Raceco, followed by Mark Whittington, 27 seconds later, in a VW Mirage. Kent and Scott Pfeiffer, former SCORE bike champions, ran fourth in their VW Raceco, and just 23 seconds behind their car, was the team of Jeff Quinn, and their brother, Kurt Pfeiffer, in a VW Chenowth. The Zupanoviches held on through the second lap, but disaster of some sort befell Flamson and Spangler, while Whittington lost his transmission. Kirk Van Matre and Carl Olson were second now, in their Raceco, only four minutes back , and followed by Cam Thieriot and Greg Lewin, in a Toyota Chen-ow th, about two-and-a-half minutes later.John Hays, in a VW Raceco, was fourth, followed by Dan Blain, driving a Toyota powered Mirage, only 15 minutes behind the leader. It, was still anyone's race. The Zupanovich car was out with a broken lifter on lap three, and Thieriot and Lewin took over the lead, with five minutes on second place Les Fulkerson and Craig Marshall, in a VW powered Raceco. Now Mike Petersen and Pat Dean were third, three minutes later in a Toyota Chenowth, and Blain had moved up to fourth, with Hays dropping back to fifth, as he struggled with rocks in his pulley, which kept popping his belts off. Thieriot and Lewin fell by the wayside also, as they lost their motor. But Fulkerson and JI Marshall came into a little luck, when they got stuck in the silt on their last lap, and a broken-down mini-truck driver helped them get out. They said they couldn't have done it themselves. And it got them their first-ever win. Hays, after putting on a couple of new lights, came in second, followed by Melvin Tom, who said, "There's something wrong up front." He was tired, he'd soloed, so that accounts for the fact that he hadn't spotted that the whole center was broken out of his front drum. Rex Keeling and Tom Koch teamed up in Keeling's Raceco for this one, and managed a fourth in spite of the fact that they'd each rolled the car over, and it finished with a major piece missing from the roll cage. The Baja Bugs started next, and Rich Minga put his Porsche Bug into the first lap lead, with just under a· minute on LeRoy VanKirk and Stan Parnell in the other Porsche Bug. Minga claims 3 liters in his motor, and VanKirk says his is 3 .2 liters. In third place it was Lyn Mocaby and Dave Bonner, with a '66 convertible, sporting 2600ccs and an auto-matic transmission. Marty Hart was fourth in his Jimco, listed at 2400ccs, and Bill Hernquist and Michael Lund, in another Jimco, admitting to only 2300ccs, and with Olga Vernon, General Tire's Race Manager as passenger, ran fifth. Minga's Porsche had serious brake trouble, and he fell back, as Hart stood on the throttle and ran Gene Norman and John Cooley combined their talents to drive hard in this Class 5 Bug and they finished middle of the pack, third. Steve Kelley and Ben Metcalf stayed close and pushed the winners all day, but their Chevy was second in Class 4 by just 12 minutes. Craig Forest and John Prosser had a near trouble free run in their Chenowth over the rough stuff and placed second in Class 1-2-1600. Larry Martin had some ups and downs in the race, but kept moving quickly to finish third in Class 1-2-1600 in the Chenowth. Page 14 ~~.,. fa;;.

Class 7 4x4 was a run-a-way for Dave and Paul Simon in their trusty Ford Ranger. None in the half dozen behind them ever got close and they won by well over three hours. It was Johnson and Johnson in for the win in Class 7S which started out to be a close contest. At the flag John and Chuck had the Ford Ranger way over an hour up on the other 15 trucks. the fast lap for the class, Hall's fourth lap was tough on 2:35:06.3, to put himself into the him. Somewhere along the line he lead. VanKirk and Parnell were was rear,ended by, get this, a still second, four minutes back, buggy!, which he claimed damaged and Hernquist and Lund had moved into third. Dave Baeskens, in Gary Bates' '69 Bug, with a 2180cc motor, was now fourth, and Minga held fifth. Hart was having a nearly clean day, and held his lead, now seven minutes up on Minga, who had things back in shape again, and was second. Bates had taken over in his car, and ran third, after driving a long way with no power steering when a belt popped off. Greg Vaughan and Val Dodd, in a 2666cc '59 sedan, were fourth, and Chuck Dodson and Joseph Trimino, who are equipped with a 2210cc motor, ran fifth. Hart shattered a spring plate cover, taking his bottom stop out at the same time, on a big rock, but that was the only damage he did to the car, and while it worried him, it didn't impede his progress. He brought the car in for his second win of the year, 40 minutes in front of the second place car. That was Bates and Baeskens, who'd run the last lap with bald rear tires, and had a terrible time getting through the silt. In third it was Gene Norman and John Cooley, in a convertible with a 3000cc motor, who'd had several flats and a broken throttle linkage to mar their day. The Class 4 troops were next to go, and this race marked the long awaited debut of Mike Schwel, linger and Steve Kramer's new Class 4 Ford. But it was a short, lived debut, as the team had a serious steering malfunction, which they couldn't correct. They didn't even get one lap completed, though they went through the short,course track several times, on their way back in for repairs. Rodney Hall, with Jim Fricker on board as navigator, took the early lead, in his Dodge, and was just over five minutes in front of Steve Kelley and Ben Metcalf in their Chevrolet. Eric Heiden and Les Barnett, in a Dodge, ran third, followed by John and J.P. Dyck, in a Jeep, in fourth. Hall and Fricker were having a fairly smooth day, but they were keeping tabs on Kelley, who, although he had an axle problem, stayed too close for comfort. Heiden and Barnett continued to run third, with the Dycks in fourth. At the end of lap three Hall's lead was only a little over four minutes, and it was still Kelley pushing him. Heiden dropped out and the Dycks moved into third, with Timmy Lee Pruett and Bill Holmes, Ford, in fourth place, after a couple of longish laps.

From first to sixth place there was only a matter of four minutes and 43 seconds, and there was a big crowd of competitive drivers in the next five minute span. A couple of them, Dave Mansker and Joel Stankavich, in a JMR, took over the lead on the second lap, with eight seconds on Forrest, who'd moved up to second. Spina and Underwood were third now, and Tom and Bob DeNault, 1989 Overall series champions, in a Chenowth, were fourth. Cameron Steele, in a Raceco, pumped out the class fast lap, at 2:32:47.6, to move up to fifth, and Danny Porter and Mark Ruddis were sixth, in their SV 1000 ss. By the end of lap three the DeNaults, who'd had a flat on lap one, but were having no more problems of any sort, were in the lead. They had only 23 seconds on Tim and Tom Burns, in a Raceco, who were now second. John Prosser took over for Forrest, and he was third, two minutes later, followed by Mansker and Stankavich, who'd lost about 20 minutes and fell to fourth. Porter and Ruddis were still fifth, and Brian and Scott Steele, in a JMR, were sixth. The Denaults had another flawless lap, and took their first win of the '90 season, finishing a strong 10th overall. The Burns team finished second, but were later disqualified on technical grounds, so Forrest and Prosser, who'd actually been the second car to arrive, took second place. Larry Martin, who'd rolled on the first lap, and broken a tie rod, moved up to take third place, followed in by Scott and Bill Reams, in an ORC, who'd broken the bottom stop off their front end, and been amazed to see the whole front end fold forward, over on itself. They did a lot of catching up, to finish fourth. Webster and Woolf, who don't carry a spare, had had two flats, and then worked back up to fifth. Class 7 started next, and Roger Mears and his Nissan took the early lead, with not quite two minutes on Larry Ragland, who was still driving the old Chevy, until the new Class 2 truck is finished. Manny Esquerra lost an hour with broken leaf springs, twice, on his Ford, and ran third, followed by Kim Mohr, in another Ford, who headed for the pits to get a broken crossmember fixed. Mears picked up the pace on lap two, and recorded the Class 7 fast lap, 2:29:50.3, increasing his lead to 12 minutes. Ragland was still second, and Esquerra was running well, but a long way back, in third. Mohr was now headed into the pits to have his brakes repaired, but was still fourth. With only little problems; two flats, and a spare tire that disappeared, Mears held his lead, !ry\ '• ,:1, .,. and it grew to 27 minutes at the end of the third lap. Esquerra was now second, while Ragland lost two hours with some problem, and Axel Mohr rolled his truck, and put an end to its race. Mears took the win, with Esquerra second, and only 20 minutes behind him. Ragland managed third, but was very late, and no one else finished. Class 7 4x4 was a small group, and it was dominated all day by the Simon brothers, Dave and Paul, who ran the quick lap for the class on lap one, at 2:-30:33.7, to take the lead by 11 minutes. Mike Lesle and Jack Ramsay ran second in a Jeep, and Jerry McDonald and Jeff Lewis were a minute and 23 seconds in back of them in their Chevrolet. Gregg Symonds and Marty Reider, finally getting some distance out of the new Toyota, were fourth. The Simons, having an un-eventful day, continued their lead, and at the end of lap two had an hour and 21 minutes on Symonds and Reider who'd moved up to second. McDonald and Lewis were third, over an hour later, while Lesle and Ramsay changed a transfer case. The Simons continued to run free of mechanical troubles, but they, like everyone else, were finding this to be the roughest course they'd ever seen. Their lead grew to two hours by the end of the third lap, and Symonds and Reider still held second place. Despite this slight delay Malcolm Vinje and Mark Hansen had a fine run in their Toyota and they finished third, only a minute behind second place. Ross Craft had some driving help from both Wayne and Darryl Cook and it paid off with a neat second place finish in Class 5-1600.

Bruce Mangold and Tim Gavett ran in the tight pack of the 24 Class 9 cars, then moved up to the leaders and won the class after four rugged laps. McDonald was still third, an hour and seven minutes back, and now Darren and Doug York moved into fourth, three hours later, as Lesle and Ramsay were out. At the checkered flag it was the Simons, finishing 13th overall as well, and in front of every truck except Vessels, Hall and Kelley, a major accomplishment. Three hours and 20 minutes later, after many stops to put grease in the rear end, Reider finished right smack dab on the back bumper of McDonald, and by virtue of their start positions, this meant that g , ( Reider and Symonds were ahead, and in second place, by only 48 seconds. McDonald and Lewis were third, and the last of the class · to finish four laps. The 7S trucks went off the line next, and this group, too, had but one leader all day. The Ford of ChuckJohnsonandJohnJohnson had a lead of 11 :26 by the end of lap one, and it was Jerry Whelchel, in a Toyota, running second. Third place belonged to Gabriel and Joseph Naranjo, in a Ford, and in fourth it was Malcolm Vinje and Mark Hansen (Malcolm driving, and Mark pre-running in the passenger seat), in a Toyota, while Rob MacCachren ran fifth in his Jeep.

Vinje and Hansen, having electrical problems, dropped to fifth. At the end of the second lap J ohnJ ohnson experienced his one problem when a nut came off, and then the yoke fell off and pulled the driveshaft with it. When the truck rolled to a stop John walked back in the silt to gather up the driveshaft, and also found, to. his surprise, the nut. Nothing was badly damaged, so he put it all together, and lost only 15 minutes. The driveshaft was bent, however, but they decided to go ahead and run with it, with many stops to put in gear lube. · Their lead was still secure at the end of three laps, when they had 18 minutes on Valdez, who was having trouble with his alternator. Vinje and Hansen were now up to third place, followed by Lamke and Cornwell, and Terry Brown and William O'Brien, in a Ford, moved to fifth, as the Naranjos dropped out. The Johnsons carried on and took the win, causing Chuck to rejoice at his first victory at the "Mint", never mind the name change. They had over an hour on Valdez, who'd had silt packed in his clutch for much of the last lap. Vinje and Hansen were only three minutes later, in third, and then it was Lamke and Cornwell, followed by Brown and O 'Brien. The limited Baja Bugs, 5-1600, were next off the grid, and these folks had Tim Lawrence in front of them at the end oflap one, with the fast lap for the class, a speedy 2:56:58.9 . He had four minutes and 4 7 seconds on Rich Fersch and Pat Todd, who ran second, and they were 40 seconds up on David Purcell and Larry Rosevear, who ran third. Gary Lane and Mike Fielding ran fourth, nine seconds later, and then it was Scot Jones and John Holmes, in another 22 seconds. After a quick change of a c. v. boot, Tim's dad, Steve, got in for the next lap, and he still had the lead at the end of lap two, but he had less than a minute on Jones and Holmes, who were now second. In third it was Darryl Cook, in Ross Craft's car, a minute and 24 seconds later, and followed by Mike Kalicki, and then Purcell and Rosevear, who'd lost about 13 minutes. Tim got back in for lap three, and his only stop was to take the light covers off, as he built his lead to six minutes. Craft was back in his car now, and in second place, after welding a trans strap and tightening up the axle nuts. Robert Knight and Greg Krogh had come up to third, about a half hour later, having a rougher time May 1990 ;£ Danny Ashcraft and Scott Wagenblast have their Ford Bronco II together this year, had some troubles but came home second. of it than some, because they'd lost their windshield on the first lap, and the silt could come right in with them. Lane and Fielding were fourth, and George and Greg Tuttle ran fifth now. Kalicki was badly stuck in the silt, and Purcell and Rosevear were doomed to d.n.f. Steve Lawrence got back in for the fourth lap, and, having no problems, brought the car around in good time, for a first place finish. Wayne Cook, in Craft's car for the last lap, finished on a sagged out rear suspension that happened just at the finish, only 20 minutes later, in second place. Knight and Krogh were third, then it was Lane and Fielding, and Rod Sorenson and Jim Magill, who came out from Idaho for this race, finished fifth, a good showing indeed, for folks not accustomed to "Mint" type races. The Challengers, Class 9, went off next, and for this class there was a real struggle for the lead. Arturo and Armando Tiznado were in front, in their J imco, at the end of the first lap, but, feeling a little pushed by the closeness of another car in their class apparently, they rolled over on the short-course, in the turn after the big jump. They were back on their wheels in a flash, and out on their next lap, seemingly no worse for the experience, and had recorded the class fast lap, a nice 3:06:29.6. Tom Malloy and W ayne Horning, in a Geiser, ran second, a little over a minute later, followed by Roy and W ade Prince, in a Chenowth, another minute and 25 seconds back. In fourth it was Jamey Long and Dan Janiyowski, in a Ghoster, only 13 seconds off their bumper. Fifth place belonged to Ray MacClain and Mike Daghlian. The class had lost a full third of its entry on the first lap. , The Princes, who had started last and were, at the end of lap two, the second Challenger on the road, had Tiznado in their sights as they came to the turn which led down into the infield short-course. Roy, who was at the wheel, didn't know it had just , been watered, and he went into a slide that led into a four-time rollover that awed the spectators. But he was quickly back on his wheels, with one bent rear hub, and hustled through the maze to the finish line check, to be timed as the leader. Tiznado, though in front of him on the road, was behind him on elapsed time by a minute and 49 seconds. Billy Kem and Pat Smith, in an ORBS, ran third now, 10 minutes later, and Bruce Mangold and Tim Gavett, in a Raceco, were fourth, 48 -seconds behind the m , with Maclain and Daghlian holding fifth spot. The Tiznados faded away on the next lap, and the Prince car, with Wade now driving, led by 23 minutes. Mangold and Gavett were second, and having a trouble-free day. In third it was Maclain and Daghlian, and Dave Girdner, with a Hi]umper, had moved into fourth, having no troubles, but stopping to check his tires a lot. Kem and Smith were fifth, only three and a half minutes behind him. Prince continued to lead until about 20 miles before the finish, where his points shorted out. Mangold and Gavett went on by to take the win, their first ever. Prince salvaged second, a half hour back, and in third it was Dave Ramocinski and Norm Lester, in a Raceco, who'd been catching up since the first two laps. They'd had a loose balljoint, and then had been hit by a Jeep, which cost them some time . consuming repairs. Kem and Smith finished fourth, followed in by Girdner. Dave Ashley was the first lap leader in the next group, Class 3/14, with the class fast lap, at 2:45:49.6, he had his Bronco 27 minutes in front of second place Don Adams, in his Jeep. Third place belonged to Madelene Lesle and Curt LeDuc, in another Jeep, and then it was Debi Barrett and Jerry Daugherty, in Barrett's CJ7 , fourth, Dale White ran fifth in a Blazer. Ashley had a full half hour at the end oflap two, and it was now Larry Olsen in Adam's Jeep, in second. White moved up to third, followed by Lesle and LeDuc. Barrett, who wasn't doing much driving since she'd broken her arm at Parker, and Daugherty began to have a series of problems that led to a d.n.f. after only two laps. Ashley, who had no windshield, discovered that his goggles were poorly fitted, and he began to have trouble with his eyes, as the alkaline silt sifted into them. But he held his lead, and had 50 minutes at the end of lap three. It was still Adams and Olsen in second place, after having two flats in the rock garden, with only one spare. And now Lesle and LeDuc were back in third, 19 minutes behind them. White was fourth, and Robert Hayley and Randy Hymer, who'd got a late start in the morning, ran fifth in their Bronco, but were unable to get through their fourth lap. Ashley lost an axle on the last lap, but decided to go ahead without it. His eyes were more trouble than the axle, and he had his riding mec hanic, Mike Bakholdin, take over the driving for about 40 miles so he could rest them. Then he took over the wheel again, and came to the Dusty Times

Charles Townsley and son Charlie continued on their winning ways in the Chenowth Mini Mag class. They had an hour in hand at the flag plus they were the only four lap class finisher. It was a familiar sight to see David Ashley and Mike Bakholdin whip their Ford Bronco into the Class 3/4 victory. However, they won by only 36 minutes instead of the usual hours. Running as hard as the car did last year, Scott Douglas drove the Jeep Cherokee fast to win Class 6 by over three hours. Only three started in the stock VW Beetle Class 11 they had only two laps to do for a finish, and only one did. Saul Zambrano and Jeff Strait did two laps in 12 hours for the win. finish, driving blind much of the time, but taking the win easily. Ashley went right to the first-aid folks for some eyewash, and was in good shape by the next morning. In second it was Adams and Olsen, and then LeDuc and Lesle finished third, followed in by White, and none of the others made the fourth lap. The next group to take the green flag was the Chenowth Mini-Mags, and one of the youngest drivers in the event, Charlie Townsley, 15 years old, took the lead, with the fast lap for the class, 2:48:33.9. He was nine minutes up on the team of Bud Harris and Rory Chenowth, who were second, and then it was Frank and Steve Bristing, five minutes later, in third. Dan and Don Weaver ran fourth. Charlie had a flat, but he held his lead through the second lap, and had just six minutes on Harris and Chenowth, who were still second. The Weaver team moved up to third, but were two hours down, while the Bristings, after losing four hours, were fourth. Charlie's dad, Charles (Rudy) ' Townsley took over for the last two laps, and he had some problems, starting with a broken shock, a broken spring in the clutch and then a flat front tire. But he held on to the lead, as everyone else had major problems, and died on the vine. Only two other Mini-Mags finished the third lap, and that was the Bristings, who were second, but five hours down, and Scott Steinberger, in third, two hours behind them. The T ownsleys collected their win, and were the only team in the class to manage four laps. The Bristings' three lap time was good for second, and Steinberger was third. The winners in this class beat the winning times of Classes 3, 7S and 9, all of which started in front of them. But they'll have to Dusty Times have more than one quick finisher in the group before they can move up on the starting grid. Class 6 came next, and this was a runaway win for Scott Douglas in the Walker Evans team Jeep Cherokee. He had fast lap for the group at 3:02:09.3 on lap one, and opened up a lead of 18 minutes on Danny Ashcraft and George Wagenblast, in a Ford Bronco II. In third it was Dale and Randy Jordan, another hour later, in their El Camino. Mike Horner and Steve Ball in a Jimmy, were fourth, but destined for a second lap collapse. Larry Schwacofer and Sid Spradling, in the '57 Chevy, had been .put out by_ a broken transmission. Douglas had 39 minutes after lap two, and it was still Ashcraft and Wagenblast in pursuit. The Jordans had had down time, and still ran third, but almost two hours late. No one else was running. Douglas continued to run in front, over three hours ahead by the end of lap three, still followed by the Bronco, and now even the J ordans were out of it. On the last lap word came back that Douglas was stuck in a hole, but somehow, even with all the restricted areas on the course, he got lucky, and his crew was able to go in to rescue him, so he could make it to the finish line for another win. Ashcraft and Wagenblast also got to the finish line, about four hours later, but second in class. The last class to start was Class 11, the stock production V olks-wagens, and there were only three of the little cars, which had to complete only two laps. Even that was too much for two of thei:n, and Michael Duenas and Will Williams lost their steering on the first lap and were done. Gary and Keavin Anderson did manage to do one lap, but it was beset by troubles, and lasted seven and a half hours. In the lead all day, in spite of some difficulties, was the kept getting unstuck, and took the change, which meant that there team of Jeff Strait and Saul team's second win for the year. was probably an hour and a half Zambrano, who'd been the last SotheNissan400goesintothe less daylight, since the Mint car lined up in staging.

Chuck Dodson and Joseph Trimino rear up out of one of many tricky ditches en route to their fifth place finish in Class 5. Danny Porter catches a little air in the La Victoria 1-2-1600 racer. His team finished a strong seventh in the huge class. Jeeps are popping up in many classes this year, and Turbo Lamke and Tom Cornwell were fourth in Class 7S despite big problems. Dale White's Chevy Blazer looks fairly plain for a racer, but it runs like a race car and finished fourth in Class 3/14. Page 10 Robby Gordon flew the Venable Ford to fourth in Class 8, but he was disqualified completely due to course infractions. It was a personal triumph for John Dyck to finish a "Mint 400" race and he finished third in Class 4 in the Jeep J-10. Todd Davis and Kevin Derby were fifth in Class 10 which had an all new cast of characters in the top five at the Nissan 400. The huge 1-2-1600 class ran in bunches for several laps and Ron Wansley had his Chenowth in the top bunch to finish sixth.

1990 Rally of Portugal Text & Plwtos: Martin Holmes .-..~ A . . changes. Ari Vatanen had none of the weariness that showed at Monte Carlo and Kenneth Eriksson was looking to work out what was going to happen. At Toyota there was a new spirit of determination and the cars sounded marvelous when they were testing. Mazda, pitted out of the main stream, revved up upon the arrival of young driver Gregoire de Mevius and the old stagers, Hannu Mikkola and Timo Salonen did -much more practice than usual. It was another romp, especially on the gravel roads, for Miki Biasion and Tiziano Siviero in the latest version of the Lancia Delta lntegrale 16v. It is the third year running that Miki has won in Portugal. The Tuesday afternoon super, special was moved at short notice from the Estoril stadium to the National Stadium, where a 2.5 course was laid out in an area normally reserved for motocross. Miki Biasion looked set to redeem his lackluster performance at Monte Carlo and set fastest time, though not without controversy. Right in front of the large spectator area he drove wide, through the plastic tape that defined the course. Seasoned photographers jumped out of the way but a local spectator, who had jumped the barriers for a better view, was rooted to the ground at the sight of the advancing Lancia. He was fortunate to suffer nothing worse than a broken leg. Timo Salonen was also unlucky. The engine in his Mazda failed when the throttle stuck to the floor, while Georg Fischer's Audi 200 Quattro lost five minutes with a loose turbocharger pipe. After four days of rain and wrecks, tire traumas and tortured transmissions, the reliable Lancias won the Rally of Portugal and the Japanese teams went home in disgrace. Mitsubishi and Toyota had an honorable disgrace, both having swapped the lead in the early stages, but the single Mazda that struggled through to the finish was far from the leaders. After promising so much, the sight of yet more Lancia domina, tion was depressing, even though in statistical terms, their 1,2,3-4, 5 result (like the top 15 placings going to turbocharged cars), was the greatest achievement in the history of World Championship Rallying. It may be what their bullet proof cars merited, but it was the opposite of what the public had been hoping for ... Miki Biasion once again made it look all so easy. His Integrale ran almost faultlessly, only a broken shock bolt on the first proper special stage causing alarm. He beat team.mate Didier Auriol, who was once again the fastest dtiver on the · stages, after the Frenchman was delaye<;i firstly by a puncture and then an excursion off the road .• while newly returned driver Juha Kankkunen, who avoided the battle up front, finished a solid though distant third. Miki won for the third year running, and the Frenchman is still just ahead of the double World Champion in the 1990 series points. The shame of it' all was that everything pointed to such an exciting battle, which it transpired to be before it all went wrong for Lancia's opposition. Mitsubishi had a lot more confidence than they showed at Monte Carlo with major engine management The proper rally started the following morning, amid promise of changeable weather. The main problem was that twice the rally was delayed because of accidents PARKER PUMPER HELMET CO. 714-894-8332· Page 22 1985 SNELL APPROVED HELMETS * STANDARD VOYAGER W/90° HOSE FITTING * DELUXE VOYAGER W/MOLDED AIR INLET Each helmet has shield and skirt included.

By Thursday evening Recalde was back in second place, 40 seconds behind, with Oreille third and Michael Gerber fourth in his private Mitsubishi. Coming up strongly on only his second rally in a 4 WD car and his second rally outside of South America was Recalde's friend Ernesto Soto, who had an Astra team 8 valve lntegrale. But Soto went off the road, and by Viseu Trelles was only 30 seconds in front. Soto then passed Oreille who had gearbox trouble.

Carlos Sainz then also had transmission troubles caused by the failure of the hydraulic system that controls the torque split device. The Toyota mech, anics tried all their tricks, without success, and the car kept going into rear drive mode. Carlos spun three times and his hopes of catching Biasion were gone. Mikkola was also depressed. His was the only Mazda still going, but he had trouble with the turbo. The final morning was the camel's straw for the Toyota. Maybe it was the strain of the unintended two wheel driving, but the rear transmission was wrecked.

Greg George had the fast time in the Super 1600 group in his Sage Council Chenowth, ten seconds faster than Thompson, by the way. Jeff Elrod had the quick time among the UltraStocks in his VW bodied race car. The first heat for the Grand National Sport Trucks opened the racing program with Roger Mears on the pole in his Nissan. Oddly enough his son Roger Jr., was directly behind him in the second row in another Nissan. Roger Mears took an early lead, but halfway through the first lap Walker Evans rolled his Jeep. The race went under the yellow flag while the car was righted, then the race was stopped entirely. When the event was restarted, lap 2 of Heat 1 ended the same as lap 1 with Mears in the lead; this time, however, I van Stew a rt was running a close second in the Toyota. By the fourth lap it was still Mears and Stewart, but Walker Evans had taken over third spot. On the 5th lap Evans moved into second place ahead of Stewart. This was a really good race and Roger Mears led all the way to the checkered flag, followed by Evans, Stewart and Rob MacCach-ren, Jeep plus Rod Millen in his new Ford ride. - ' The UltraStocks were up next and with a big entry, for them, of eleven cars, they were split into two heats. Chris Neil took the early lead while the rest of the pack bunched up at the hairpin tum. In second place Larry Noel made a real dice out of Heat 1 when he overtook Neil on the second lap. It became a four car race when Kent Castle and Vince Tjelmeland went out with mechanical problems. Larry Noel retook the lead in the third lap and held it to the checkered flag, and Chris Neil, also in a VW bodied racer ran second, well ahead of the field. Lloyd Castle had his Jeep in third, and Doug Bath came from Loveland, Colorado to claim fourth in his Toyota. The second UltraStock started out with a bang. Heading into the first turn on the first lap Brian Collins rolled his Porsche, righted himself and continued. The first lap leader was Brad Castle in his Toyota and he soon held a commanding lead over the rest of the five car field. Tim Lewis was a strong second in his Porsche and Jeff Elrod was just as strong in third in his VW. They continued in formation, but on the last lap Paul Nissley rolled his Toyota and had to have assistance in righting the car to get going again.

Brian Collins recovers from his earlier mishap to be running fourth at the finish. Pit notes from the first truck race included word from Danny Thompson that he had lost his power steering. While working his way up through the pack, he accidentally landed on the tail of Glenn Harris' Mazda and broke the power steering. His crew will have it replaced for Heat 2. Rod Millen said he was really happy with the Ford Truck. "It just keeps getting better and better." Unfortunately, Millen started on the second row outside and was forced to the outer edge during much of the race. "This is a hard track to pass on," he said.

Danny Thompson started out strong in the Chevrolet, nailed down fast qualifying time for trucks, then had problems in the actual races. Rod Millen, left, and Jeff Huber engage in some wheel to wheel dicing, and this type of action is what the crowds come to the stadium to see. Roll overs are common, but speeds are slow so the major damage is done to the sheet metal and glass on the truck, and to the driver's pride. Some of the best competition in the whole show comes from the Superlites. This shot is typical of not Just the first lap but of the entire race. In UltraStock wars, new entries are growing like the #67 Porsche of Brian Collins, here being pursued by 1988 points champion Jeff Elrod. Defending UltraStock points champion Lloyd Castle has switched to a Jeep this year, as has his son Kent, but both have had wrist injuries. ~ seriously.

The early leader was Bob Gordon in his Chenowth, but defending points champion Mitch Mustard was a distant second. In the second lap Jimmy Nichols and Greg George locked wheels after Bill Goshen broke down in the first lap. Gordon continued to lead the PUT YOUR FUEL IN A SAFE PLACE. field through four laps but was closely challenged by four other vehicles. It was tight at the checkered flag, but Bob Gordon hung on to win the heat, Mitch Mustard held second followed by Greg George, Jerry Whelchel and Brad Castle. The second heat, with an all new cast, saw another fierce battle for the Super 1600s. Danny Rice, Chenowth, took the lead from the green, but gave up the position at the end of the second lap when Marty Coyne took over. Wes Elrod broke on lap 4, but after just a couple of laps the race was really decided. Marty Coyne continued to hold a commanding lead. Tommy Croft spun out in lap 6 but continued to race. Frank Arciero Jr. had a flat tire in the seventh lap, but he also continued. Never in doubt after the first lap the heat winner was Marty Coyne in his Chenowth. Danny Rice was second followed by desert racer Kevin Smith in his new Mirage, and Tommy Croft. After a short delay to change the course the high flying motorcycles took to the track.

However, Mears Jr. left the track in the third lap after losing a wheel and Mears Sr. suffered a flat tire leaving the race wide open. Glenn Harris took over the lead during the third lap, but in the next round Rob MacCachren rolled and the race was stopped. At the restart Glenn Harris remained in the lead in his Mazda, closely followed by Ivan Stewart, Toyota.

Finishing the sixth lap Noel seemed to lose power and Lewis tried to take advantage of the situation to challenge but it was too late, Larry Noel won the Main in his VW, Lewis was second in the Porsche, and Neil took third followed by Jeff Elrod.

Charles Shepherd was close and challenging but Hamilton won the race aboard a Suzuki while Shepherd's Honda finished second followed by Don Turk and Kenneth Delk. Eighteen Superlites filled the grid for their main event. Greg George broke down while leading the first lap. The bottleneck he created helped Rory Holladay take the lead through two laps. The top four positions in this race remained the same for four laps, then three more broke down but did not prove to be obstacles for the rest of the field.

But Bob Gordon won the main in his Chenowth, and Mustard was second. Greg George took third, followed by Jerry Whelchel, Tommy Croft and Kevin Smith making a good debut in the new Mirage. Mike Bell took an early and commanding lead in the Ultra-cross main event, and was never really challenged for the first three laps. Then Lowell Thompson moved in and stayed close, and Mike Craig moved into third with the rest of the pack far behind. On the last lap Mike Craig's efforts finally paid off as he passed the leader; Mike Bell, to take the checkered flag on a Kawasaki. Bell held second and Thompson finished third both on Suzukis.

The first moto had unlimited 1 and 2, Class 10, and heavy metals going at it for forty-five minutes plus one lap. They left every five seconds making scoring difficult in the "Dusty Times" tha t followed. The five mile course was great. It contained a wide variety of conditions; rocks, mud holes, grassy hills, a motocross section, and the last mile being fast access roads. The fastest time of the afternoon was logged by Garen McCune at just under six minutes. Surprising to everyone the problem of the day was dust and lots of it. A good number of turns were overshot and a lot of nerfing was going on but "that's racing" . In first moto action it was John F. Smith dazzling the crowd in his V-8 powered flashcar. Next it was Sam Berri in his new cobra. Garen McCune was running a close third and being very aggressive when he could see. That trio pulled away from the rest of the class and traded places among themselves a few times.

Joe Gordon and Ken Ruff stayed competitive but Roger had the clear view advantage. Mike Bishop was handling his challenger rivals with authority except for a late moto charge from Donovan Skaggs. John Taylor rounded out the top three challengers in the end. The Sportsman class at V.O.R.R.A. is always busy and this race was no exception with many new cars and old champions competing in the dust.

Larry Zimmer-man thought it best to let Garen drive both moto's. The team had decided to race only two days before so Larry was wrenching on the car within minutes of moto 1.

SOUTHERN PACIFIC DMSION PRO RALLY REPORT By Lynnette Allison, Steward Two outstanding Pro rally events will run on May 12. We welcome the Carson Valley Coefficient 2 event_, headquartered in Gardnerville, Nevada. Call organizer George Gornik at (702) 883-6868 for rally entry and information. This demanding event, previously run in October 1989, is a NORPAC event. A second rally is Rocky Mountain Division's Centennial Second Decade, a Coefficient 2, headquartered in Woodland Park, Colorado. Contact Regan Smolkovich at (303) 477-9298. And yes, the Divisional points can be applied toward your 1990 SO PAC Championship. But please don't try to find a way to run to both of them. Tune in on May 19 for the well known NOR'WESTER, a tradi-tional NORP AC event, Coef-ficient 2, headquartered in Olympia, WA. Contact Ed . Millman at (206) 361-7389 for current information. California Rally Series members are working toward a sprint for · July, but there is nothing definite at this time. Welcome new organizers David Philhower and Ken Smith who are working together to organize a two or three event series in the Hungry Valley Off Road Park at Gorman, CA. We have all enjoyed this area for many years and these two new organizers hope to bring us something special before the end of the year. Thanks for taking the first step into the world of the event organizers. We need people like you. John Elkin reports he is working with Bill Gutzmann and Sheryl Love for a Rallysprint in Las Vegas later this year. Keep up the work, folks! Helmet Snell stickers should be checked, so take a good look at yours. You should be seeing an SA. The SA designation is for "Special Applications". This means the helmet was tested by the SNELL laboratories to withstand extreme force exerted repeatedly against a metal bar, and other special situations common in racing.

Hopes continue for a La Jornada/Sasquatch event in the Sequoia Forest, though now a June 1991 date seems likely. Rangers within the Sequoia Forest seem in favor of Pro rallying returning to their roads, but members within the com-munity of Pine Flats, in the years when the La Jornada Rally was held within their community, filed some complaints. These are still being held in the forestry's files. Ray Hocker with Mike and Paula Gibeault are working to improve the situation. The fate of the Glen Helen Sprints rests with an organizer's ability to find$ 1000 to $2000 to guarantee the track's gate fee. Sheryl and Jim Love are working to find a solution to the problem. A standing room only crowd gathered March 20 to discuss the direction of Pro Rallying. Objectives for the meeting were to find ways to: Increase the number of events within our division; Maintain high safety standards within each event; Increase the number of skilled workers· to support rally events. CALIFORNIA RALLY SERIES An Innovative and Competitive Championship for Divisional Rallyists Even if you aspire to World Championship rallying, you need to start at the Divisional, or local level. In. most SCCA Divisions everyone runs in one class. However, the California Rally Series, formed in 1976, provides an independent local Champion-. ship in three different classes, all organized and run by and for the competitors themselves . . . a unique and effective system. Competition in the three CRS classes -Open, Stock, and Stock GT, is fierce. At the elegant year-end Awards Banquet the top-finishing competitors in each class are rewarded for the year's efforts, receiving handsome photo plaques. Annual fall meetings of the active competitors in Stock and Stock GT decide any rule changes for the next year. In Open Class, anything goes, so no meeting is necessary! Details such as keeping track of standings, printing the yearly Rules and Regulations book, and publishing articles about events in DUSTY TIMES magazine are handled by the event· organizers and several officers who form the Board of Governors. Event organizers are all busy competitors themselves, and early in the series' history discovered the advantages of pooling their talents and resources. Organizers share equipment such as rally control clocks, signs, and marshals' vests, Suggestions ranged from paying a secretary to handle paperwork and phone calls, to allowing only new cars in the series so that more sponsors will be interested in providing funds. There were many more ideas put forth. We did increase our pool of skilled rally personnel, with several regulars volunteering to train tech inspectors, control workers and . so on. Thanks to all of you who offered your help. It is greatly appreciated. This Pro Rally column has been , missing these past few months. You have not been losing your vision. As you know, we who volunteer our time must some-times make choices. Here's my story for those who may be interested . In Ma y 1 9 8 9 I purchased a business and thought the paperwork and red tape for purchasing and operating a travel agency would be completed in a few months.Wrong. Purchasing a business, operating a business, setting up a business, paying all the bills for a business takes an enormous amount of time. And I continue to teach full time. And I have a family. And my three month maximum hiatus in writing stretched into more than six months·. But, I'm glad some of you missed· me and the column. Thanks to Sam Moore for offering to help write something ( though I was sure I'd be ready to go inJanuary and told him_l could do it). Ah. Well. But we're up and running again! Let's go! and produce standardized results with such nice features as flow charts and percentage slower than winning time for each competitor, on each stage. Competitors pay an annual $30 fee to cover the costs of mailing results, · buying new equipment for events, and making up the year-end trophy plaques. Iri addition, they receive a year's subscription to DUSTY TIMES. The new Associate Membership offers rally enthusiasts who are not drivers or co-drivers the chance to receive all mailings and DUSTY TIMES too, and keep up on current happenings in the sport. CRSCLASSES OPEN CLASS If the overall win is the only way for you, then this is your class. There are no restrictions on engine size and engine swaps are allowed. However, all vehicles must be production-based, and of course be street-legal, licensed and insured. STOCK CLASS This is the least expensive way to get into the sport of PRO rallying, yet it is a very competitive class. Vehicles are limited to a $4000 low market value before preparation, except that National event qualified Rallytrucks may also run. Very little engine, modification is allowed, to keep· costs down, and turbo-and superchargers are not allowed. Suspension improvements are restricted. · STOCK GT CLASS The newest class in CRS rallying follows the preparation restrictions of Stock Class, to keep costs down, but has no dollar limit. This class includes the fun, new technology cars run in stock trim. For information or to receive a current Rules and Regulations May 1990 morc ••• TRAIL NOTES THE WINSTON SMOKIN' WHEELS RACE on the island of Guam is coming up late this month and it should be a dandy. A number of west coast teams are going across the Pacific to race this most challenging course, in fact Sage Council is taking both a Stadium Chenowth for Jerry Whelchel and a Baja Bug for Doug Ingles. Whelchel finished second in Guam last year behind Glenn Harris, and he plans to win this year, now that he has seen the course and the mud. WALT LOTI RACE A THON: Wayne Lee of Val Electric and a Class 7 desert racer came up with a terrific idea of staging a Race A Thon for the Crippled Children's Society. The fund raiser will be in conjunction with the HORA Fireworks 250 to be held on July 6-8 near Barstow, CA. Lee's plan is for each racer to get money pledges from friends, business associates, and race supporters, for each mile they race. Bob Steinberger, co-chairman of the Walt Lott award said the race draws about 270 entries, and the finish ratio is about 50 percent. If each entry could average only $5.00 per mile, we could raise $169,000 for the Crippled Children's Society. For more complete information on the Race A Thon and the Walt Lott Award program, contact either Wayne Lee (714) 923-0070 or Bob Steinberger (213) 427-8177 or (800) 869-5636. INTERNATIONAL OFF ROAD RACING? Sage Council Racing Team sponsored a conference last January to gain support for an international sanctioning body to guide the future of off road racing. Over 50 industry leaders attended the event. Represented were top Off Road promoters, drivers, automobile and truck manufacturers as well as other automotive related sponsors. "The time has come for the sport of off road racing to grow beyond its hobbyist roots and become the major motorsport it can and should be," stated Lloyd Sukut, President and Owner of Sage Council Racing. "The increasing costs of competing in off road racing will require greater sponsor and media participation than ever before," continued Sukut. An internationally sanctioned Championship off road series, like NASCAR's · Winston Cup would provide the 'dynamic' necessary to bring this about." Sage Council's own efforts in the area of sponsor development first promoted the research and analysis that provided the background for the conference, "When we initially approached potential sponsors for our team, many companies requested specific marketing data on the sport that was simply not available", explained Sukut. "As a result, ·we commissioned National Devision Systems, a respected research firm, to conduct the first in depth analysis of off road racing fans and participants. The research results along with even further evaluation of the sport conducted by our marketing consultant strongly suggested that off road racing was falling short of its potential. We view this conference as a first step in focusing theattention of all concerned off road professionals on these important issues, said Sukut. Minutes of the conference and a synopsis of the research and marketing analysis are available upon request by writing: Mr. Lloyd Sukut, President, Sage Council Racing, 11 Columbia, Laguna Beach, CA 92656. MOLSON EXPORT SUPERCROSS on May 25 should be bigger and better than ever. It was the first full seating, non-baseball event ever held in Toronto's new Sky Dome and 70,000 fans were on hand. The program includes motorcycle racing, off road car racing, 4x4 truck racing, A TV racing and Monster trucks. It is a full program, exciting all the way.

We don't know too much about the rules or the practice schedule except the gate opens at 3:00 p.m. for _the buggy racers.

GMC SUBURBAN Gentle Giant Dusty Times annual trek to the Mint 400; oh pardon us, the Nissan 400 was again made with the help of the Gentle Giant, the massive GMC Suburban, enthus-iastically furnished by Vista Group as they have done for so many years in the past. We have driven the GMC Suburban on many occasions oyer the years, both 2 and 4 wheel drive and they all seem to perform the same, flawlessly. They are massive, with interior room for the whole baseball team: I'm serious, you can seat nine, count 'em nine adults in this baby and there is still room for luggage. The center and rear bench seats lift out with the flick of a finger and then you really have room for cargo, which is the way Dusty Times utilizes this vehicle, loaded with many copies of the current The GMC shares everything but a little trim with the Chevy, so no matter where you travel, there will always be parts houses and repair shops if needed, or just a new set of windshield wipers, sometimes hard to find.

On the mechanical side we have the smoother than glass three speed automatic transmission, a 7 .4 liter V-8, all the heavy duty trailering stuff, locking differential and a 4.10 rear drive .. It's really quite a package and along with all goodies it is Ql)IET, there is almost no exterior sound getting through all that glass and metal. Naturally this baby had the latest in electronic gadgetry in the radio department, tilt wheel, cruise control and, wonder of wonders, WIND WINGS, you know, that small piece of glass just forward of the side windows that swivels out, you don't find them on too many vehicles any more. This model has a wheelbase of 129 .5 inches, that is just a bit short of eleven feet, that's a lot of feet. The overall length is akin to the battleship Missouri, but when you're sitting up there on the bridge it sure is a great feeling, you're surrounded with power; beauty, convenience and comfort; what a way to travel. Our trip to the Nissan 400, with all the goodies aboard and with three people along netted eleven miles per gallon: coupled with a 37 gallon gas tank it gives a cruising range of over 400 miles May 1990 There is no mistake about it - this is a BIG vehicle, and you choose your parking spots carefully.

With all the teams now familiar with the course, not only driving skills, but also horsepower would be needed to win. pack of vehicles were just seconds behind.

The Tavares brothers and their 200 horsepower, Toyota Celica All-Trac Turbo were the proper combination to dominate stages 2 through 8 and take home the 45 second, well deserved win.

The Tavares' All-Trac took two seconds from the following crews on stage 2, and 4 seconds in stage 3. Ah! The air of dominance about it. After three stages and being just 2 seconds behind the beast (Toyota), the O'Sullivans wanted to turn up the wick a bit. Alas with an ailing clutch and a dead cylinder, they had to drive as cleanly as possible, so as not to lose their hold on 2nd place. The Though it was the first event of the year, everyone drove smart enough to finish. There were no "incidents" much to the delight of Judy Gooch and Dave White, the organizers. As a matter of fact, Sears Point was holding their Nationals (Road Races) that same day, and this "Family Affair" just happened to steal a few of their curious and interested spectators and corner workers by the end of the day.

CONEJO OFF ROAD RACING TEAM It's been a while since I've sent a letter in to DUS.TY TIMES. We've been making some big changes and have been extremely busy. The Conejo Off-Road Racing T earn has changed classes and we are building a new vehicle. We are now in Class 4 running a Ford F-150 4x4 showing the General Tire colors. We missed the Parker 400 because we were behind schedule. Anyone who has built a vehicle knows that nothing ever goes together without unforeseen problems. We had to put in some 24-hour days to be sure we'd even make the Nissan 400. Our team finally pulled in at the Speedrome at 1 a.m. Saturday morning and we never had time for any testing. (The first time the truck was off the ground was the first jump at the Speedrome.) It was nice to start early in a faster class with nicer course conditions. Unfortunately, we were finished early. We got to Checkpoint -# L three times but never got past there! The tie rods bent early on a::1d we went back to fix them. The second time out we had the same problem and we went back to try and reinforce them. After the third time, we decided we definitely need to redesign and strengthen the steering components.

COLORADO on ROAD CHAMPIONSHIP SERID GWP5 Looks for Record Setting Season in 1990 '" ,;;., Rich Brewbaker flies high in his Class 1-2-1600 racer on a clear day for racing at VDR Berthoud, Colorado, one of several GWPS tracks. The Heavy Metal trucks are usually the most popular class with the crowds. The groundshakers are growing in numbers each event too. we have ever experienced. Also we have two races at Central City, Colorado where in 1989 we set records for spectator attendance, spectator enjoyment, racer participation and level of competition. We have two more races at the Colorado State Fairgrounds in Pueblo where racers will be running for guaranteed purses. In previous years we have never had purses that were guaranteed this far in advance. group in the field of off road racing. They decided to recognize GWPS as a series where racers can gain experience for the Mickey Thompson Off Road Champion-ship Gran Prix. The result of this was that in 1989, and again in 1990, GWPS racers that are in first place in the points series at the time of the Mile High Mickey Thompson Race, will receive a free entry to that race if they are in one of the 6 classes that compete in MTEG. Great Western Points Series ( GWPS) is a Colorado non-profit corporation dedicated to pro-moting off road racing. Each summer, GWPS sanctions, promotes, and produces a series of off road races called the Colorado Off Road Champion-ship Series. Each race includes classes for everyone from A TV uads to Heavy Metal trucks. Already there are guaranteed purses to be split among the classes at several races and negotiations with current and potential sponsors are continuing. There is a $500.00 guarantee for the First Place 250 A Quad at the first race on May 20. Continued excellent racer participation combined with potential spon-THE sorship support will enable us ·to continue the $500.00 first place guarantee for 250 A Quads throughout the season. At the Colorado State Fairgrounds race on July 15, there is a $5000.00 guaranteed purse to be split among the classes for the Sunday afternoon races, plus 80% of entry fees will be paid back as purse at the Saturday night preliminaries. Guaranteed purses are being negotiated for several other races, but have not been finalized yet. Sponsorship is an exciting area for 1990. Most of the Series sponsorship and promotion is still being negotiated, but the proposals that have been accepted , along with those that are being WRIGHT PLACE~. COIL SPRING YOUR FRONT END!

Throughout the last ten years, GWPS has provided Colorado with a home grown version of the high flying action that is normally associated with desert racing. GWPS, in contrast, produces short course stadium type races where all of the action is right in front of the spectators so they can see everything that is happening on the track. This format along with the fact that these races take place here on the Front Range of Colorado, means that Coloradans have the chance to watch or participate in the bump and grind high flying action of wheel to wheel off road racing. GWPS is very excited about the prospects for 1990. Our schedule includes races at Adams County Fairgrounds, where in 1988 the racing and spectator enjoyment were at some of the highest levels During 1989, the Mickey Thompson Entertainment Group (MTEG), the premier short course racing organization in America, took a very close look at the GWPS program and decided that we were an up and coming GWPS is looking forward to the best year of racing in our history, and we invite everyone to get involved as either a spectator or a participant. There will be plenty of high flying action, and we will have fun. The competition is fierce in the 1-2-1600 class, which is usually large as well. Keith Chesnut whips his 1600 over the Berthoud course last summer. Ken Brace/in is a many time Class 2 champion in Great : Western Points events, and here he flies his latest 1 creation neatly at Berthoud. The Quad racers are a big part of Great Western Points Series racing. Dan Cornforth is a faithful entry and often at the head of the pack. r t Long time competitor in Colorado and elsewhere, Ed Mailo likes to race his Class 5 car with the big boys and he sometimes beats the Class 1 /2 cars.

The Losers By Judy Smith Last month in this column we told you about a whole bunch of Losers from the Nissan 400 {previously, the Mint). and thought we had pretty well covered the subject. But in the ensuing weeks we've uncovered a few more and we decided to bring them to you also. As always, we'll never hear all the stories that came out of that toughest of all races. One we are curious about is the team of Jean-Claude Wicki and Jean-Paul Forclaz {Wicki is from Long Beach and Forclaz is from Switzerland), who entered a Class 3 114 GMC. They had reportedly driven the Paris/Dakar Rally with the same vehicle earlier this year, and won their class. But one lap of the Mint was all they could manage, and that lap lasted 11 hours and 11 minutes. Ed and Tim Herbst, a pair of local boys, had a much shorter race, because they broke a spindle on their big Porsche powered two seat car on the second lap, and spent the rest of the day as spectators. Their other brother, Troy, made use of their mis-fortune, and, when his eyes went away because he got silt in them, he had Ed drive the last lap in his single seater. Mike Horner, driving his GMC in Class 6 these days, had a hard race as far as he went. He reported rolling the truck on lap one, and then he had to change carburetors, and his back window blew out. Horner said that the silt was terrible, and, because of it he'd had to change his oil twice. And with all that, he managed to finish only one lap. Ron and Bill Brady, who race in Class 9, didn't get through lap one. They broke a torsion adjuster finger, and didn't have a spare. Ron and Greg Kishiyama just barely got out of the infield short-course and onto the drag strip, when the power steering of their beautiful Class 8 Ford locked up, right after the start. They were there for 40 minutes, making repairs. Then they did one lap and never came around again. Jim Sumners and Rob Tolleson, after running fifth in the l /2-1600s on lap one, broke a tie rod on lap two. By the time repairs were made they were so far down they decided there was no point in getting back into the fray in that very competitive class. Larry Job and Steve Reibel, in Class 10, had problems with the snap ring on their axles again, as they had at the Parker race. And then they broke a rocker shaft on lap two, and that was it for them. Cam Thieriot and Greg Lewin, also in Class 10, had the lead on the third lap, but lost their motor. Bill Poe and Fred Ronn, another Class 10 team, hit something on lap three and broke a front hub. They had a spare, and made a timely switch, and sent the car on its way. But the spare hub had a bearing failure, and the Fat Lady sang for Poe and Ronn. Danny Letner did one full lap, but the transmission on his Porsche power<;d t~o seatei: became stuck in fourth gear, and he went no further. Jerry Whelchel, driving in Class 7S in a Toyota, ran second on lap one, but then ran into trouble. He changed a balljoint, and reported to his crew that his transmission was overheating. They were sure that it could be repaired, but Jerry never did get lap two completed. Tom and Steve Martin, in the unlimited class, with the new Pontiac motor in their car, lost an alternator wire. Then, when they stopped the car they couldn't re-start. So they took a battery from Dick and Gary W eyhrich, whose Class 10 car was already out, and went on to finish lap one. But on lap two they broke the steering knuckle, and that was the end of their day. Tom Mace, who drives a 5-1600, was out on the second lap when his rear torsion adjuster tore apart, while Debi Barrett and Jerry Daugherty, in Barrett's Class 3 Jeep, had a variety of troubles, including a shackle that broke, shocks that went away, a broken battery post, a seized front end and a broken starter. They managed to get through only two laps. Jerry Penhall and Bud Feldkamp ran well for two laps, in Jerry's two seat unlimited car, and then broke a trailing arm on lap three. And, as if that wasn't enough trouble, they were dq'd for inadvertently hitting one of the ribbons that marked off a tortoise burrow. Terry Rickman and Mike Davis had points troubles on their 1600 car, but what put them out was a collapsed rear suspension on lap two. Darrell Smith couldn't drive his 5 11600 Circus Circus car because of a recent eye injury, but he was there to cheer it on. Tom Moesener drove, and had the car up to seventh at the end of lap three, a good place to be, but then the motor went out, 30 miles before they got to the finish. Chris Minor ran well for two laps in Class 8, but a lap three rollover took him out. And Craig Stewart, in a 5-1600, had multiple -c.v.jointproblems.Hekeptfixing them, then borrowed some from Doug Fortin, Jr.'s supply, and broke those also. He was also having transmission trouble, or shifter trouble. At any rate, it often wouldn't shift, and when it did, because the reverse lock-out was gone, it kept going into reverse at the wrong time. He managed only two laps. Gary Waller, in a two seat unlimited Raceco, cracked his engine case and lost all his oil on lap one, while Frank Snook and Eric Arras broke a trailing arm on their unlimited car on the first lap. And Gary Hymes and Steve Holladay, in still another unlimited car, broke a trailing arm on lap two. Jeff and Larry Trimble, who drive a 1/2-1600 car, managed a good first lap, but then on lap two, as they rounded a corner, coming out of the dust, they ran smack dab into T immy Pruett's broken Class 4 Ford. Timmy himself took some of the hit, and got the air knocked out of him when he was tossed to the ground, but he managed to get himself squared away, fixed his truck and went on to finish. But the T rimbles had ruined their front end, and that was the end of their race. Brian Goodrich and Kevin Basore drive a 5-1600, and ran sixth at the end of lap one, a good beginning for their day. But then they lost a torsion finger, and replaced it, losing a few positions. Then, while Kevin was driving, he was hit by a 2 /1600 car, and it rolled him over. He got going again, but a bit later a spring plate broke, a result of the hit and roll. They took a long hard look at the car, which by now also had a sagged out front end, and decided they were too far down to make it worth while doing all the repairs and going on. So they retired from the race. Next month we should be back with Losers from San Felipe. See you then.

-~ OFF-ROAD RA<afNG 'TEAM 'The Straight Poop From The Big Wahzoo' Well, the W ahzoo is back from vacation where I spent a couple of weeks trying to find 'Catfish's' secret fishing hole, without much success. I won't bore you with any B.S. about the big one that got away, instead I'll jump right into some race stories from Baja De Lou #1 and the Mint. These accounts may be a little old by now, but well worth repeating if you haven't heard them. If it seems that I'm a little nastier than usual this month, it's because I didn't catch a damn thing while I was gone. Dave Pick showed up at Lou's race, but about a half an hour late. Seems he was pulling into town just as Lou and Uncle Max were leaving the starting line area. A quick conference was held, cash was exchanged and a form filled out. Dave quickly unloaded his car and gave Max his motorhome for safe keeping then charged off into the desert, dead last! Well in typical 'Pick your part' fashion Dave had trouble and finished late only to find that his motorhome had been turned into race headquarters at the finish line. Although Pick joined the Club amid some controversy, he has become another one of our Club's true Checker characters. Hey Dave, I'm sorry now that I voted against ya! Keep a lookout for some guy calling himself Marty Reider. Seems this guy entered Lou's race in Class 10 Sportsman using Marty's name and was lucky enough to not only win the class, but also be the first overall SPORTS MAN finisher. The Wahzoo knows it wasn't really Marty because Reider would never claim to be a Sportsman racer, since he has not only won a past Baja 1000 race, but also a Points Championship in Class 10. The real Marty Reider we all know would never do anything like that -would he? And now to the Mint race: An 'atta boy' must go out to Stuart Chase for not only leading the first lap by a big margin, but also for turning in the fast lap for the entire event. Sadly all this good stuff was quickly cancelled out when he ran out of gas on the second lap with the ESPN helicopter flying directly overhead filming his heroics. But with all things considered, Stuart did solidly serve notice to his fellow competitors that he is now definitely 'one of the boys' in the unlimited buggy ranks. T evon and the Martins found out that duct taping the hold down clamp on your fire extinguisher is not a good idea. After they rolled their car and it caught fire, they couldn't get the extinguisher out and almost burnt the whole car up. Melancon's new 1/2 1600 car was purposely built super light weight but this year's Mint race showed that his spare tire mount may have been built a little too light. On the second lap it broke, tore off the air cleaner as it left and the motor soon ground to a halt. Hey Willie, was this a case of .00 too thin tubing or just a damn poor design? Pick ran one of his typical races at the Mint also. He rolled his 5 car early in the race, bending up all four corners and retiring shortly thereafter, but not before giving his radio antenna a unique test. Apparently Dave spent some time still buckled up in his seat with his car on its lid and talking on his radio while upside down. Seems his radio still worked fine in this attitude so Pick spent some time trying to contact any Checker cars passing by in hopes of getting himself rolled back over. I guess if you had been on your head as many times as Dave has, you wouldn't get too excited either!

REDLINE OIL -Page 38 May 1990 this race with Jeff Strait, who also drove to victory with Saul. John must be muttering to himself " hey man, what's a guy gotta do to keep a ride?" Symonds, along with Reider and Miller, put Greg's new truck across the finish line in second place this race. There is nothing strange or funny about this story except the fact that Symonds finally finished one. Keeling and Koch took turns rolling Rex's Class 10 car but brought it in for the fourth place money. Dave Mansker paid his $100 fine for nor showing up at the Competition Review Board at Parker, but not without some comment to the effect, "OK, as long as it goes to charity and not to SCORE". They can call it what they like, but as far as the course was concerned, this was still the 'MINT' and as usual, the Club did well. WEDNESDAY NIGHT GOINGS ON -There is a feeling among some members that our new Prez may be a little too nice of a guy to control this crowd, as evidenced by a number of recent meetings that have come close to getting out of control. These kind of meetings are a lot of fun for the guys in 'the cheap seats' but not too encouraging for the more serious members. At a recent meeting a strange alliance was formed to bring an issue to a vote before the members present. Seems Hibbard was upset over the number of non-Checkers listed on the official race map and read off the names of about seven of them on the Parker map to make his point. Dunn, who generally is on the other side of the fence on most of Jeff's ideas, made a motion in favor and called for a vote on the issue. After a heated discussion, a good majority voted to list only Checkers on all Checker publica-tions in the future. Speaking of Jeff, there is concern lately among a few members about exactly what he is up to? As co-promoter of the upcoming Willow Springs Race, Hibbard is not only offering a big Checker ticket discount, but also providing the Club with a large area in the pits for the Checkers Summer Party. What's up Jeff? The rumor that's going around is that you're going to try to rope the Club into running the trash pickup detail after the race - any truth to that? My 'Missing Checker of the Month' this month is Jim Gregory. As a past Secretary and the Club's unofficial radio man, Jim has been sorta scarce lately. The word is that he has fallen for some topless dancer that does her thing on Wednesday nights at some dive over on Lankershim Blvd. Hey Gregory, don't you know that there is more to life than some broad with a set of big antennas? Give your eyes a break and stop by and see us some time. Unlike my usual attempt at a humorous ending of this article, I conclude this month's column with some very sad news, Russ Biswell died last month. Russ was not only an active Brother Checker, but also our current Club Secretary. Off Road Racing had been a large part of his life for a number of years. He was the head ofSCORE's checkpoint and course workers group before he joined the Club and as a Checker, he was a dedicated pit worker that made it to almost every race. At most of the Wednesday night meetings Russ could usually be found sitting at his regular seat, right in the middle of the room, the only one in the meeting wearing a tie and usually defending himself against the good natured comments about his white dress shirt that always appeared to be a little too small. Anyone that knew him had no doubt that Russ Biswell was very proud to be a part of our organization. Off Road Racing has lost a dedicated fan and solid supporter, but more important, the Checkers lost a Club Brother and another one of our few good men ... Russ will be missed! • .I.R CJNG&.PfT SUPPORT ASSOC.• By Rich Fersch FAIR rolled into Las Vegas for the Nissan 400 in support of 23 cars. We placed six pits around the course with the FAIR van located in the Speedrome. FM radio communication proved to be excellent due to our ability to relay messages from pit to pit. The Prudential Trophy ( the Piece of the Rock award), left the Martin Brothers camp and was awarded to Brian Parkhouse for bagging a nice 850 pound 6 point male rock just past the Highway 93 crossing. Brian's new light-weight single seat rock crusher is currently on order. FAIR had ten finishers all together. In Class 1, 7th place went to Aaron Hawley, 8th to Willis Hamilton, and 9th place to Florida's own Jimmy Crowder. In Class 10, we stole the show with 1st place going to the Raceco-Raceco of Lester Fulkerson and 2nd place to new member John Hayes. Way to go guys! Our exalted president finished a fine 3rd in Class 5 and is currently 2nd in the points standings. Only half of our 1-2-1600 entry finished, with Brian Parkhouse taking 11th place and Tom Day Jr. 15th. Both of our 5-16001s finished with Rich Fersch sliding into 6th place and Rick Pew taking 8th place. Scott Steinberger, renowned MiniMag driver and son of Dr. Bob Steinberger, was seen starting out on his last lap with only minutes to go on the time allowance. When last heard from, FAIR 5 was trying to head him off with threats of bodily harm. FAIR meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month at the Holiday Inn, corner of Harbor Blvd., and the 91 Freeway in Fullerton. Meetings start at 8:00 sharp. See you there!

Competition Review Board Report near mile marker 22 Collins was stuck behind the slower Class 4 vehicle. Growing impatient and tired of eating the volumes of dirt that only a large truck can produce, Brian smacked the truck with his Porsche· powered Chenowth and took him for a ride for some distance before pulling out to pass. Holmes stated "I've raced in Class 8, driven Pro Rally and raced in other organizations, so I know what nerfing is all about. But this is the hardest I've ever been hit in my life". following him for some distance, apparently waiting for the big truck to yield, Brian said, "We got in front of the pits, he had a shot to pull over, never pulled over, so I took him for a ride." The Review Board failed to see the humor in Brian's action, although you had to admire him for being frank about it. He was fined $500.00 and awarded a Letter of Reprimand for this potentially dangerous act. Brian asked that the fine be directed as payment for damages, to Bill Holmes, everyone agreed. The Competition Review Board for the 1990 Nissan 400 met at 7:30 a.m. on the Sunday at the Gold Coast Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. In spite of the early hour all invited members were present. Malcolm Vinje was Board Administrator, Brian Collins represented Class 2, Walker Evans, Class 8, Rich Fersch, Class 5-1600, Matt Pike, Class 3. Also present were Frank Vessels; alternate, George Thompspn, CRB Marshal, Danny Cau, HORA President, Jerry Bender, HORA Race Director. The# 129 entry ofBob Gordon and Butch Arciero was protested by a Nevada pit support team for allegedly pitting on the wrong side of the course. It was allegedly pitted· by a chase vehicle near Apex road, not a legal pit area. Bob Gordon was on hand and said "my co-rider had to get out about 20 miles before that, so I was alone. A long breaker bar wrench got loose and was in between the brake and clutch pedal. I kept trying to kick it out of the way, and pulled over to the side of the road where Brian Church crawled into the car and removed it. That was it, and I left. While it had been assumed that this was a premeditated pit stop it was not the case, rather an emergency stop to cure a safety related problem and the case was dismissed. Entries #107, Jerry Penhall, #917,Jack Millerd and #100, Bill Church, were disqualified for running over DQ_signs around the tortoise burrow at mile marker 93 .5. Of these three only Bill Church appeared at the Review Board to discuss. the matter. It seems Bill had some mechanical problems and also spent time upside down during the race. Frustrated and disoriented he chose to resign from the event and sent his chase crew in to retrieve the vehicle, which was down in the tortoise burrow area. While his crew was extricating his vehicle, they accidentally backed over one of the DQsigns and were reported by BLM officials on the scene. Entries #992, Robert Hughes, #1003, Jerry Leighton, and #1025, Steve Rebeil were disqualified, issued letters of reprimand and fined $500 .00 each when it was learned that Metro Police saw their chase vehicles retrieving broken race cars on Pabco Road which was closed. Each of these crews were stopped and told to leave the road, and each of the,e crews basically told Police that they did . not care! None of them appeared before the CRB to defend their actions. For those of you who think that these penalties were a little stiff, here is some background on this road, owned by the Pabco Corp. The last time we were allowed to run across Pabco Road, several years ago, there was a devastating accident involving a race car and a private vehicle in which someone was almost killed. Pabco was sued ( not by the racer) and after this experience they were not in the mood to allow race traffic on their Dusty Times By George R. Thompson road, ever again! As it was it took a U.S. Senator to talk them into just allowing the race to cross the road and then only if HORA hired Metro Police to close off the road in three separate locations. It took seven months and countless · meetings to secure the permission. · The chase crews cavalier attitude about this restriction was deemed unacceptable by the Board, who would all like to race here again. None of these entries will be allowed to participate in a SCORE/HORA event until this fine is satisfied. Proceeds from all fines will go to the Roger Roderick Foundation. There was one case against a Class 10 racer who came in too hot at the start/finish, and skidded through the check sending Officials running for safety. Due to a paper work snafu, HORA had apparently flagged the wrong entry on the unofficial results. With no identification on this car the case had to be dismissed. Scott Reams, #1602, was protested by the BLM officials when he was seen passing in the DQsign area at mile marker 93 .5. After discussion with officials and Scott, it was determined that he had done nothing wrong. He did not hit a sign or leave the course while making the pass. In fact we were confused why the BLM protested this entry at all. The sad part of it is that Scott Reams lost what would have been a third place finish by ONE SECOND. Scott spent that second and many others being Black Flagged by HORA officials for the alleged infraction. In the future, we will ask HORA to black flag only those entries who have finished the race as they cross the finish line. The only required posting of any protest is and will continue to be on the unofficial results, one hour before the Review Board meeting. Entry #804, Robby Gordon, was disqualified for two safety related infractions during his second lap. His first problem was at the start/ finish when he came in too hot and skidded all across the drag strip area before coming to a halt. Later on, and in the Valley of Fire pit area, he was cited for dangerous driving when he popped a tire just past his pit. According to the HORA Official on the scene he did a full power U-turn and came back down course, which was lined with lots of people on the left side, pits were on the right side and race traffic was coming toward Gordon. The Class 8 members of the board were excluded from this decision. The remaining board members voted unanimously for disqualification, and that was it. Entries #901, Jamie Long, and #911, Armando Tiznado, were penalized two positions and fined $250.00 each for driving through the start/finish check point. According to the officials, "They were about 50 yards apart and just raced right through, like we weren't even there. We couldn't believe it was happening." Both entries failed to appear at the Review Board meeting. Entry # 110, Alton Baker, was disqualified when BLM and HORA Officials discovered his chase vehicle proceeding back-wards on the course. Entry #114, Brian Collins, was charged with abusive nerfing by #448, Bill Holmes, a Class 4, 600 hp truck! Apparently, somewhere "I nerfed him hard", said Collins, who up to this time had been sitting on the Review Board. "After the check point I saw the co-rider's hand come out". After The. Competition Review Board for the Nissan 400 was adjourned at 10:50 a.m. after meeting for over three hours. Comment on the Marshal, my job is to report those decisions and enforce them. I Competition Review Board think the time has come to By George R. Thompson recognize that we are all in this ----------------------------together. This is not a perfect I've been involved in racing in one form or another since the mid-S0s. In those 0arly years we used to take our street machines out to deserted roads and race, one oh one to see who could build the fastest car. In those days, as in these, there were always some people who tried every kind of trick to gain an unfair advantage, so we started making rules to race by. At first these were simple, straightforward rules, which reflected the technology of the time, but as we evolved, so did the rules. Now we're showing up with cars that cost more than a split level house and bringing them out in big fancy rigs with our names plastered all over the side, and that's all very exciting. I am proud to be associated with the sport and the people in it, but I wonder if, in our desire to win, we are beginning to lose sight of that original, unending concept of where we are coming from: Our May 1990 roots. When all is sa-id and done system of] ustice, but it is a system we are still, all, just a bunch of in which we, the racers, make our guys trying to prove that we can own decisions. Most of these are build a better machine and drive it hard decisions and in a closed faster than the next guy.

AZ. 85017 · Manufadurers Advisory Board Report LAS VEGAS, Nev. -Bad. racing, SCORE International publicity is just what it is -president Sal Fish told the publicity - and doesn't reflect manufacturer's advisory commit-the current health of off-road tee of the SCORE-High Desert Ye·s, there have been some last minute changes in the 1991 rules, as we hurry to the printers with the final version of that elusive book. Due to the contributions of the IDRA and the class reps we have been able to address the concerns of a large number of competitors. Here are the 11th hour changes. Art Peterson, the Class 1-2-1600 rep., with help from Bobby Neth, polled the class and brought in a new suspension philosophy that will be in effect for the duration of che 1991 and 1992 seasons and probably for several years after that. The upper front shock mounting location, pre-scribed in the current rules, has gone to an open· position and mounting method. The debate over allowing the Porsche in Class 5, which has been in the rules for many years but didn't get to be an issue until one driver started racing a Porsche in the class, was resolved by an IDRA poll conducted by George Thompson. The Porsche lives on in the class, but the 6-cylinder engine has been outlawed beginning in 1991. Furthermore, if the Porsche runs in the class, it must be on stock suspension. And it must use a 4-cylinder VW-type engine. That was a stock power plant for the Porsche 912, which has been out of production for Dusty Tima many years, but a Class 5 Porsche owner can use any Porsche body style. In Class 6, class representative Dale Jordan suggested for clarification of several items that he thought would create better understanding of the requirements of the class, and we agree. One change we made was to drop the eligibility standard for eligible vehicles from a 5,000 production run to 2,000. The new rules will also allow any transmission offered by the manufacturer of a particular vehicle, rather than only the one that was original equipment in the vehicle when sold. This allows some truck transmissions in the class, which is what the com-petitors wanted. For the manufacturer-interest classes, namely 3, 4, 6, 7, 7S, 7-4x4 and 8, the engine location is fixed in the stock location, as measured from the centerline of the front spindle to the back of the block. There is an allowable variance, plus or minus one inch, to account for construction variables. For Classes 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8 the requirement for a stock firewall has been eliminated by establish-ing a stock position for the engine. The firewall rule was essentially an engine location rule, but it isn't necessary any more, now that the engine location is spelled out. off-road racing series. "Danny Cau (HORA president) and I have never had to work harder to deal with our prob-lems", Fish said. "There is no denying the problems. But on the positive side, off-road racing has never been healthier. "We have a good schedule of races. We have good entry fields. The people we deal with, like the Bureau of Land Management and the authorities in Mexico, tell us we're doing a good job. We need positive support from you people, the manufacturers." Fish and Cau told the com-mittee that they would report before the next meeting, May 14 in Phoenix, a comprehensive marketing plan. It will include where, how many and what kinds of races the two organizations plan to promote, plus projected television coverage, among other data.
