John Greaves hustles his 1600 past the infamous pond between the first two turns, and he won Class 1-1600, later won Class 2-1600 and on Sunday won the Limited Challenge race in this car. In between in another Taylor chassis he was fifth in Class 9, second in Class l and finished the weekend by winning the Unlimited Challenge using Toyota power. Greaves hails from DePere, which is near Green Bay, WI. Jeff Kincaid is a local racer from Crandon and he surprised the visiting western troops in Class 7, as he passed the Class 7 leaders late in the tace and won in his Ford Ranger. On Sunday he also bided his time, and again passed the leader on the last lap to win the Class 6 & 7 Challenge. Color Photography by baniel Maimer.

Soapbox ••• I am wntmg this account because something very disturb-ing occurred during the weekend of the Second Annual HORA Desert Championships. It con-cerned the tech inspecton of limited class vehicles. As a desert racer I have only competed in limited class vehicles. I have always felt that technical inspec-tions of these vehicles is a given and is required for safety issues, and because those are the rules. If a person does not want to follow the rules then he or she should enter a class that does not have limitations. Up until this week-end at Willow Springs, I thought that the official technical in-spectors followed this logic and applied it to everyone. Before I proceed, I would like to state that I feel that tech inspec-tors have the hardest job to per-form at any given event. These people have to check cars to be sure they conform to not only the safety rules but also to the class rules. This is not easy to do because racers are always trying to "push the edge of the envelope" as Chuck Yeager would say. Tempers flair when it is discov-ered that the edge has been pushed too far. It is the tech in~pector's thankless job to iden-tify the discrepancies and enforce the rules. To my dismay I discovered that weekend in September that the two top finishers in the 5-1600 class heat race on Saturday had illegal cars and were NOT disqual-ified, even though it was the tech-nical inspectors who discovered the illegalities!!! (Both had illegal carburetors.) Rather than take it on themselves to disqualify the two, they asked the third place finisher what he wanted. Third place stated that the inspectors found the discrepancies and that it was their responsibility to dis-qua Ii fy the cars. Well, guess what?? As I already stated, they · were not disqualified! So two illegal cars were able to reap the benefits of winning and coming in second in a race. They received prize money, got first choice of starting positions in Sunday's main event, and media accolades for a job well done. What about the other FIFTEEN cars in that competition, drivers racing their hearts out to place well too? Every legal car out there was ripped off of its actual rightful finish position. What about the person who came in fifth, who, if the cars had been disqualified as they should have been, would have been awarded third place. He might have gotten some prize money, but more importantly he would have had third choice of starting position that could have made all the difference in the world in that mad rush to the first set of moguls. But, we'll never know if that competitor would have done better because he was shafted by the very people who are there to .protect him against competitors who don't· take the rules for the· class seriously. To make matters worse, in another limited class someone was disqualified for being under the class weight limit by 24 pounds, and not allowed, as they are in the desert races, to add some gas to this desert car, a normally successful car and one that weighed OK before the race. This makes it seem like either the application of the rules was hit and miss or that there was favoritism going on. It is the obligation and duty of the technical inspectors to -carefully inspect the cars for NEW FROM DESERT T'z safety before a race and technical issues after a race. It is a heavy responsibility, but they must enforce safety regulations and disqualify illegal vehicles. By doing this they are protecting the lives and tights of every competi-tor in the race. Although pre-race inspections are for safety only, if a tech inspector notices something illegal about a vehicle, he can require that the discrepancy be fixed before the vehicle can enter the competition. Because com-petitors are supposed to be legal at, all times, an inspector has the right, if he so chooses, to look at any aspect of any vehicle for adherence to the rules. If the vehicle is illegal, the inspector should either disqualify the competitor if a race was just completed or make sure the discrepancy is corrected before that vehicle enters competition. Also, the top finishers in a race are not the ones to decide who is to be teched or what is to be · teched, the inspectors are. This is not a democracy. The inspectors . are the· impartial third party making sure that all the people who competed actually had a · FAIR chance at being able to win according to the rules of the game. · After all, when we enter the race we are agreeing to play by the, rules, and the officials are there as referees. l thank Dusty Times for letting this typical racer air my concerns.

The bill is similar to Alan Cranston's legislation introduced in the Senate that would create a 1.5 million acre East Mojave National Park and "protect the desert from off road vehicles, mining and other uses." The House bill sponsors are both California representatives, one from Sanger in northern California, the other from Santa Monica, neither of whose districts are within the proposed wilderness, so their vote getting campaigns would not suffer from the hardship they propose to wreak on the many desert communities that depend on tourism, mining, cattle ranchers, etc., and the U.S. Defense Department for an income base. For example, the east Mojave desert supports the Army's national tank training center at Fort Irwin near Barstow, by the way on land forbidden for use for the Barstow to Vegas race. Of course, a Sierra Club California Desert Committee spokesman said "We're ecstatic." However, it is expected that the bill in its current form would be vetoed by President Bush. However, the measure is expected to pass in the House where it has strong support from House Interior Committee Chairman George Miller, (D-Martinez ). But the Senate is another story as California Senators Alan Cranston and John Seymoyur disagree over how much of the desert needs protection from public use. The House bill would designate 77 wilderness areas covering 4.4 million acres. It provides 250,000 more acres for mining, utilities and off road vehicles use than was set aside in an earlier version. But, the legislation would also establish a 3.3 million acre Death Valley National Park, and provide 800,000 acres to create Joshua Tree National Park. Dropped from the bill were a pair of potentially troubling issues, the cost of the federal government acquiring desert land from willing sellers and the impact on military flight operations over areas of protected desert. But this group in the House apparently don't worry about cost (our taxes) or national defense. Rep. Jerry Lewis, from Redlands, who represents much of the affected desert area opposes the bill, saying the legislation is unacceptable. This man needs our support. In fact it is time, even past-time perhaps, for another letter writing campaign to both the California Senators and your representatives in the House. W e agree that Joshua trees need to be preserved, but if anyone is really interested, why have building permits been issued from Palmdale to Victorville for housing tracts that have removed at least half of the Joshuas that had stood there in their own patch of desert for 50 years that we know of? The crime is that many of these huge tracts of houses in many price ranges are unsold, so the destruction of the desert plants and loss of critter habitat was obviously politically motivated, and the builders have long since fled to fairer fields. Do write to your elected representatives before this legislation gains enough momentum to override a Presidential veto. It will cost a lot of government tax money and create a lot of economic hardship. SNORE LTD had a keen event for their 22nd Annual SNORE 250, held on similar trails used for the HORA Gold Coast 300, yet to happen as we go to press. Tommy Bradley won overall and in Open Class, pursued all the way by Jim Barbeau and Jack Short in second. Tom Burns was only two more minutes back, winning the biggest class, 1-2-1600, followed by Bryan Pennington, and the two 1600s were third and fourth overall. Burns also collected the rotating $500 bonus from SNORE for more cash. Melvin Tom was fifth overall, first in Class 10, close behind, and in overall standings he was followed by Gary Sewell/Dan Keller and Danny Anderson. Steve Eversmeyer and Jim Wischmeyer won Class 9, and Tim Crain was second. Steve Barlow was the only finisher in the five rig mini truck class, and along with class money Steve won the $1000 bonus from Joe Rossi Tires, not a bad take for the effort. Mike and Steve Taylor won Class 5-1600 over Mike Klinger. We'll have the full report on the race in the December issue. With one race left on the SNORE schedule, the Eldorado 250 (formerly the Showboat 250), the points battle is close. Tom Burns tops the points list but Tommy Bradley is second, and Tim Crain is only 30 points behind Bradley. The race date is December 7. so if you are coming to L'ls Vegas for the HORA/SNORE banquet that evening, bring your race car. Don't forget there is a one thousand dollar bonus from Joe Rossi Tires and Yokohama in mini truck class, plus the generous 60 percent payback for the win.ner. .. not to be sneezed at. The race starts early on Saturday, and should he over long before you need to get cleaned up for the banquet. Check the ad on page 2 in this issue for details. We'll see you there. THE HDRA/SCORE points series has truly tightened up with two races left to go at this writing. Doug Fortin Jr. has a huge lead in Class lOover John Kelly. But Fortin is also the overall points leader, holding just six points over Class 5-1600 racer Wayne Cook, who has already sewed up that class championship, and merely five points behind Cook is Class I-2-1600class leader Tom Burns. All three drivers will need to compete in both the Gold Coast and the Baja 100 if they seek the overall points title, which this year has replaced the Driver of the Year honor, a former Off Roadsman Award that was voted on by membership, press and contingency donors. Jim Smith has a 34 point lead owr Frank Snook in Class 1/2, while Dan Smith leads Class 3 by 23 points over Curt LeDuc. Rod Hall has a slim fou'r point lead in Class 4 over Steve Kelley, with Dave Ashley only two more points back. That class will come down to the wire. Hartmut Klawitter leads Lisa Dickerson by 39 points in Class 5, and John Swift leads Mike Lesle by 18 points in Class 6. Roger Mears has a good 15 points lead over Scott Douglas in Class 7, but Spencer Low has merely nine points in hand over Chuck Johnson in Class 7S; in fact the first five here are all close enough to grab the title. In Class 7 4x4 Jerry McDonald is only six points up on Paul Simon, and Larry Ragland leads Class 8 by 21 points over Brian Stewart. Rich Richardson has just 13 points in hand to defend his 1990 points title in Class 9 while Pancho Bio is second with Roy Price just one point behind him. Martin Garibay has a husky lead in Class 11, but Larry A Pank is only 22 points up on Scott Steinberger in Mini Mag points. LA RAN A CALIFORNIA 200. It was a switch to see a Class IO car take first overall at the Ridgecrest race, as Tom Koch and Rex Keeling drove Rex's Raceco to the victory by 11 minutes margin. Dave Ardolino got his Jimco in first in 1-2-1600 and second overall to boot as the unlimiteds had trouble; but Bob Richey did salvage a win, back nearly an hour. Dave Shively won Class 5-1600 while James Clements won Class 9, and Peter Swift took Class 5. Full report will be fn the next issue as we sort out the results from the many classes in La Rana Racing. The final double points race is Novemb.;r 28 near Lucerne Valley. i;r Dusty Times

November 1991 morc ••• TRAIL NOTES CALIFORNIA RALLY SERIES NEWS -John Elkin reports that the final CRS event of the year in Northern California at Hollister Hills has been cancelled. Organizer Gary Luke said the local officials cannot get the roads in a race ready condition by the scheduled date. Luke did say that there is a new area being explored around a windmill form in the hills around San Jose, so maybe next year the event will happen. So the Gorman Ridge Rallies on November 2, co-organized by Mike Blore, Harris Done and Paul Barrows, will be it for 1991. Besides using the usual OHR V area roads the rally will feature some new stages near Rim's Libre Mountain, including a paved stage along the old Ridge Route. Our thanks to the efforts of Rob Cherry, Jeff Hendricks and Roger Hull, who with their wonderful volunteers gave the CRS a much needed coefficient 3 event in Prescott, AZ. See coverage in this issue. The Stock Class meeting last September drew eleven interested folks to outline rules governing the class. The general consensus of all attending was that current rules are working well, keeping all cars competitive at most events. Although the motion came up that cars older than 15 years, like Arrows, Datsun 510s and Opels, were facing parts shortages, namely in the carburetion area, no immediate action was taken. A committee of Sam Moore, Randy Hensley and Roger Allison will look into the pros and cons of allowing Weber or Holley street legal replacements. Their findings are expected to be made known by Rim next year, with the rule change, if any, effective in 1993. If you have any comments or input, contact one of these three gentlemen. At the Board of Governors meeting held after Prescott, some decisions were reached about the 1992 calendar of events. First, because the Big Bend Bash has obtained 60% National Points status, the BOG voted not to continue with it on the CRS calendar. However Roger Gibson, the organizer, said he will mail entry info' to the CRS for those wishing to run some great roads in Texas. Glen Helen should be taking place in late February with a double coefficient 1 format again. The BOG is looking for an organizer to fill the space between Glen Helen and Rim. Rim will be on its traditional date in May, Prescott will return the same in September, as should Gorman Ridge. If anyone has an event on the back burner, please call Mike or Paula Gibeault at (619) 375-8704. If · you live in Northern California and wish to have your points"transferred to the SoPac division for the 1992 season then call a Gibeault immediately to arrange this. Back to the Rim, 1992 will see two brand new stages, and the use of this area may open it up for other organizers to premier new events in this area on the south side of Highway 14, somewhere near Agua Dulce. The CRS annual Awards Banquet is planned for January 25, place to be announced. If you have an idea for the awards banquet, please call John Elkin at (818) 353-9427. Some of the ideas now are about having a picnic or barbecue format, like the CRS annual picnic. Congratulations to Lon Peterson and Jeff Hendricks, the two top points earners in the Southern Pacifrc Division. Both were invited to the Divisional Runoffs at the Gold Rush Rally in Colorado, and congratulations are in order for Jim Love and Rob Cherry, the two top navigators in the SCCA So Pac Division. LA TE FLASH as Wl' go to press! Lon Peterson and Jim Love won the Divisional Runoffs at the Gold Rush Rally over a field from all over the USA. Congratulations to the new National Divisional Champions who got the job done in the aged Plymouth Arrow in 19 degree temperatures, that had to be tough on the high desert dwellers. A full report on that rally will be in the December issue. MTEG AT DENVER-Roger Mears won his third straight main event victory at Mile High Stadium, and is now in contention for the Sport Truck Driver Championship, which previously had been a two way battle between Walker Evans and Ivan Stewart. With two races left on the schedule, Evans leads with 356 points, Stewart has 318 and Mears 295. And Dodge still leads the Manufacturers Cup points at 640, but Toyota has 629 and Nissan is back at 512. The truck action was highlighted by a spectacular vehicle fire in Greg George's Chevy in the first heat, but Greg escaped injury and returned from the hospital to race in the Superlite main event, where the strong man finished second and leads that points race. Frank Arciero Jr. won his second straight Super 1600 main a~d moved into second on points behind Marty Coyne, dropping defending champion Mitch Mustard to third. Tim Lewis won his first UltraStock main of the season in the tidy Porsche, but the points leader is Tommy Croft, 19 ahead of Larry Noel. The full story will be in the next issue. OFF ROADSMAN BALLOTS -If you neglected to send in your nomination ballot for the Off Roadsman Awards next December, there is one category in which we wish to do a little campaigning, Person of the Year. Often the recipient is the most visible driver of sponsor, but we have what we th ink is a good man to be Person of the Year for 1991 . How about voting for Mike Thomas, major domo at Chenowth. Mike with the help of other small companies in southern California produced a bunch of FAY Fast Attack Vehicles for the Navy Seals, the Marines and even the US Army. Under project development for some times the order came late for fast if not immediate delivery of a double digit amount of the vehicles for use in the Gulf War. Not only did Mike direct the around the clock work to get them finished and shipped, he and Don Prim of Unique Metal went to Saudi Arabia for many weeks to keep the FAVS tuned, repaired and ready for the next mission. End of Speech, but think about it this month when you vote the OffRoadsman ballot. RACE READY PRODUCTS of Chula Vista, CA sent us a nice note to express their gratitude for our assistance in helping to make the 1991 FRT Plaster City Blast Drawing for starting numbers a Huge Success. Gee it is nice to be thanked, even though we didn't do too much to help out. The note goes on to say that customers and fellow racers were very impressed with the turnout and they all appreciated the support from manufacturers in the off road industry. Thank You Race Ready Products. CAMEL TROPHY RETURNS TO SOUTH AMERICAN ROOTS -Camel Thophy 1992 will return to its traditional roots in South America, where the premier adventure event had its beginnings 12 years ago. Camel Trophy "Guyana 'Q.2" will pick up the trail in Brazil, where it left off in 1989, and make its way over little-used tracks into Guyana for the longest stretch of the 1,500 kilometre event. It is only the second time in the history of Camel Trophy that the route has crossed two countries. Teams from 18 countries are expected to take part in the 13th :mnual event, which is set to begin north of Manaus, Brazil, in late April at the beginning of the wet season. The planned route will take the convoy north across the equator to Boa Vista, crossing the border into Guyana near Lethem. It will continue northward across Guyana to the capital city of Georgetown, where the event will end in mid-May. Page 7

TRUE VALUE BRUSH RUN 101 Labor Day In Crandon, Wisconsin By Judy Smith Photos: Dan Mainzer Photography Dwayne Walkoswski was the first big winner at the 1991 Brush Run, driving his Sparta chassis in the lead almost from flag fall in the 30 car field of Class 11 cars. He also placed fourth in Sunday's single seat Class 11 race. The little town of Crandon, Wisconsin, closed out the summer season with the True Value Brush Run 101, a lively weekend of.short course racing that swells the population of Crandon from its normal 2,000 to about 45,000. The Labor Day weekend event draws racers from both coasts, Canada and as far south as Florida and Texas, as well as the local competitors from Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and Minnesota. The event, part of the mid-west's SODA/STORE series, is a three day affair, with Friday for sign up and tech inspection, as well as a brief practice session and the running of the "Hot-Laps" competition. Each contestant gets a chance to show what he can do around the 1. 7 miles of track, and the fastest driver in each class takes home a fresh hundred dollar bill. This year the fast lap record belonged to John Greaves, who drove his 1650cc powered buggy to the quickest time of all, just a twitch quicker than Walker Evans, from Riverside, California, in his big Dodge pickup. Saturday and Sunday are for racing, and all events are 20 minutes long, plus a lap. Most of the class events are on Saturday, and then Sunday afternoon is given over to the Challenge Races, which are rough amalgamations of similar classes, going for broke in their last race of the weekend. The competition is generally fierce in all the races, and one reason is that the payback is worth a little extra effort.. Although the entry fees are minute, by west coast standards, anything from $25 to $100, depending on the class, there is a guaranteed purse at this event, thanks to all those thousands of spectators. So, while the racer has invested only a nominal amount (and there are no added insurance, land use, or points fund fees), he still stands to be royally paid back. Membership in SODA is required, at $25, but only if a driver races with them more than one time, so that's not a big item either. Payback into the purse is Page 8 100% and then the Wolfshead Sportsman's Club, which owns the race track and produces the race, guaranteed an additional $26,000 in purse money for this race. But, when attendance was so good this year the guarantee was raised to $40,000, which was added to all the entry fee cash, and then divvied up amongst the top finishers in each event. The racing schedule is always organized so that each driver can enter as many races as possible. With this in mind, most of the "buggy" class drivers build two seat cars, so they can then race them, without passengers, in the single seat classes also. Thus, a 1650cc two seat car can race in four events: Class 10, Class 9 (single seat 1650cc), Class 2 unlimited and Class 1 unlimited. A two seat 1600cc can be raced in six classes if the driver has a big motor to pop in for the unlimited events, or, if he feels lucky he can try it with his little motor. And in the trucks there's some doubling up also, since the Class 4, or four wheel drive production vehicles will often race in Class 14, which is for unlimited four wheel drive trucks. And, Class 3 trucks, the short wheelbase four by fours, join in sometimes also. With all this mixing and matching, the approximately 220 drivers expanded to an entry list of 492, not including the Good . Ole Boys, who brought another 185 entry level off road sedans for the last event of the weekend. It was a big crowd, and drew a lot of spectators. Friday was sunny and hot, and that's always good for the races, because if it's nice on Friday the fans pack up their families and head for the campgrounds at the racetrack. But the Wisconsin weather gods played dirty and it got cold overnight, down into the 40s, and the spectators pulled out their sweatshirts and jackets for Saturday morning's racing. In fact, for nearly all day Saturday, which was windy and cloudy, it never did get warm. But the racing was hot. The fans, who sit on the hillside which forms the side of the lopsided bowl of the racetrack, had no complaints. The first event was at 10 a.m., and featured 28 of the SODA/ STORE Class 11 cars, which are buggies using stock Volkswagen components. Cory Friday, in a Friday chassis, took the lead off the start, but spun out in the turn at the scoring tower and fell back to seventh, and Dwayne Walkow-ski, in a Sparta chassis, slid by and took the lead. The track was very wet and slippery, and not only were the drivers having trouble keeping their wheels headed for-ward, but they were also having Jeff Probst led the 13 car field in Class 10 to the checkered flag, his Probst Laser smoking most of the 12 laps, but it stayed together to bring him in first. He also won Class 9 and was third in _the Unlimited Challenge. November 1991 Keith Berard came from Minnesota to race his two seat Class 11 to second in the weekend's first race, and Keith drives a Friday chassis in competition. Greg Spear had a good run on the slippery, heavily watered track to a close third in the big Class 11 group, taking the honor home to Missouri. trouble seeing through the mud stuck to their faceplates. Tear offs got used up quickly in this event. Walkowski continued to lead, while Keith Berard, in a Friday chassis, pushed hard in an effort . to catch him. He had Gregory Spear, in a Parsons chassis, running close behind him. Meanwhile, Friday was trying to catch up, and so was Dan Baudoux, in a Mirage chassis, who'd been bumped in the start traffic jam, and ended up way back. Glen Mathews, Mark Stein-hardt, Fred Babinchak and Friday ran in a tight clump, vying for fourth place, and on the fifth lap, as Walkowski, Berard and Spear continued to lead, Friday moved up to fourth, while Baudoux had made it back to eighth. By now Gerry Cote had broken a tie rod, Mark Eserhart had a front flat, Chad Ramesh had something badly bent in the rear, and Pat Maloney was beginning to smoke. For another four laps it was Walkowski, Berard, Spear and Friday, and now Mathews was fifth and Baudoux was sixth. But on the next lap Baudoux moved up to fifth, and straight into fourth as Friday dropped out. Walkowski went on to take the win, and Berard, who'd recorded the fast lap for the event, at 1 :59:093, was second, with a shaky front end. In third it was Spear, who'd had a clean run, and then Baudoux was fourth and Mathews was fifth. They were all still on the lead lap, as were the next eight places. Baudoux had his work cut out for him this weekend, because he was racing in a Michigan based series also, at night, in his Class 9 and unlimited car. So he had to leave Crandon and head for Michigan as soon as he got out of his car. The next event was a mix of Classes 10 and 5-1600, with the limited Baja Bugs starting a few seconds after the buggies had gone through the first turn. Lee Wuesthoff, in a Probst Laser, had the early lead, with Jeff Probst, in another Probst Laser, hot on his tail. They were chased by Brian Bernloehr, and then Art Schmitt, both also in Lasers, and then Carlton Jackson, from Florida, in a Taylor chassis. Wuesthoff continued to lead, while Probst's car began to smoke, but it didn't slow him down any. They paraded around for nine laps in that order, wending their way through the 5-1600s, and damaged buggies, but no one seriously gaining on anyone else. Schmitt was finding his rear suspension too soft, so he had to cool it on the jumps, and ?('1 ,f>: -Art Schmitt also drives a Probst Laser, finishing second in Class 10 and third in Class 9, and with a big motor he won both Class 1 and Class 2 and was second in the Unlimited Challenge.

Brian Bernloehr flew his Laser to third in Class 10, but mechanical trouble kept him out of the money in the other events he started at the Brush Run. Desert trucker Chuck Johnson campaigns a 5-1600 Bug in SODA, and he won the very tight battle for second in the class by just 3½ seconds at the flag. Bernloehr lost his turning brake second, Bernloehr was third, and about midway through the race.

Class 13 is unique to SODA and these truck chassis 'buggies' delight the crowd. Bruce Shilts took the early lead, dropped to second for a time, but came out the winner with his Chevy power after ten laps. Dusty Times · Mike Brue led the 11 5-1600s most of the race, and won by a very few seconds in a very tight run for the limited Bugs.

Jensen moved up to second place, and then on the fifth lap took over the lead, with Shilts now second and Schultz third, while Montgomery held fourth, and D an v'anden Heuvel was fifth, but not for long, as he developed a flat tire. Jensen now led for five laps, with ·Shilts second, and Robert Flanagan, in a 1930 Chevy, moved gradually up to third,. making a comeback after being bumped in the first turn. Jeff Camp, in a Ford frame/Chevy motor car, had also moved gradually up, and by lap 8 was fifth, behind Montgomery. They then had a back and forth battle, switching positions, and putting on one of the better races. On the white flag lap Jensen was black flagged when the officials noticed that the window net on the passenger side of his car was not attached. He was pulled briefly into the infield, where this was explained, and then he moved on, but Shilts had passed him during the discussion. Shilts took the win, and although Jensen actually finished second, he was declared disqualified because of the window net. So Flanagan got second place, with Camp in third and Montgomery fourth. DeGreef had the fastest lap for this t"vent, at 1:42:416. Next to perform were the single seat 1600s, all 28 of 'em, and the track had dried out enough that they made a cloud of dust as they slid into that first turn. When they came out of it John Greaves had his Taylor chassis in the lead, followed by Greg Smith, in another Taylor, and then Jim Wiggins in a Wiggins/ Berrien.

This keen Class 13 is Robert Flanagan's '30 Chevrolet truck, more than slightly modified, and Flanagan took second in class and fourth in the Non-Production Challenge. John Greaves led the 28 Class 1-2-1600 racers out of the first turn, lost the lead for a few laps, but got it back driving his Taylor to "the win in both 1-2-1600 and 2-1600 classes and he won the Limited Challenge as well. r;r Frankenberg, who'd had recent back surgery. For three laps they ran in that order, while in back of them a pack consisting of Gary Bowles, . Michael Seefeldt, Mike Sorensen and Mark Hameister battled for seventh place. Jeff St. Peter, in a Taylor, was running sixth. On the fourth lap it was Greaves, Smith, Wiggins and then Taylor and Jones. Behind them St. Peter held firm, and Seefeldt had moved up to seventh, with Sorensen behind him. Greaves let himself drift a bit too wide in a turn on the next lap, and Smith took over the lead, but by the sixth lap Greaves was back in front, and Wiggins was close on Smith's bumper. Smith's brakes were locking up, but he was making the best of it. There was a lot of close pushing and shoving going on in the ranks behind them. Greaves kept a firm hold on his lead, while Wiggins tried and tried to get past Smith. Taylor held on to fourth and Jones and St. Peter followed along in order. They finished in that order: Greaves, Smith, Wiggins, Taylor, Jones and St. Peter. Wiggins had a knot on his forehead from a rock tossed by Smith's tires. Bowles had the fast lap, a very quick 1:41:955. he got a full lap in, while Curt Gerald's Fiero started to smoke, and Jack Schroeder pulled out in a cloud of steam. Statezny gradually built a big lead, with Bekavac steady in second and Polzin, thinking he must have a broken frame because of the way his front end felt, third. Kamm blew steam for a while, and then disappeared, and John Znidorka, in a Buick Skylark, moved into fourth place. Then on the seventh lap Bekavac also pulled out, en-veloped in steam, moving Polzin up to second place, and Znidorka to third. Gary ·Bradley, in a Pontiac Gran Prix, with tractor tires on the front, was then fourth. By then there were only four cars on the lead lap, and only five cars actually still moving, since Fannin had come out to play, although three laps down after his flat. Statezny ran steadily, unchallenged, to take his win, looking very battered from a hard hit taken right off the start. Polzin, getting his first Crandon finish ever, was second, Znidorka third, and Bradley was fourth. The fast lap, at 1 :52:499, belonged to Fannin. The next group was the very fast Class 9 cars, and 20 of them took off, making for a very tangled and bumpy start. Jeff Now the track maintenance ' crew came out and watered the track for the next group, the Class 6 production sedans. As they slid through the mud on the first lap the lead belonged to Fay Statezny, in his Chevelle, who lives on the grounds of the race track, and is the favorite here. His good friend, Allen Fannin, in another Chevelle, who usually gives close battle, was down to a crawl, with a right front flat tire. In second it was Greg Bekavac, then Jeff Polzin, in an El Camino, was third and Tim Kamm was fourth. tower turn, only to have Kincaid "' go back around him a few seconds later. They were still both close to Low, and on the white flag lap, with the crowd on its feet and yelling, Kincaid zoomed past Simon and Low on the sweeper hill, to take the lead. Simon got by Low also, to move up to second, but Spencer got past him again as they came through turn number one the last time. And then they passed and repassed once more, with Low getting to second place just in time for the checkered.flag. Kincaid got the win, and recorded This Class 13 is a Ford chassis with Chevrolet power, and Jeff Camp saw the fast lap of the event, at through his mud shield well enough to take third in this wild class. 1:43:620. Then came Low and Probst emerged in the lead, in a Laser, while Don Ponder, who comes up from St. Louis, had his Laser in second place, followed by Tom Schwartzburg, another Laser, and Bill LeFeuvre, from Canada, in a Berrien. Lee Wuesthoff, usually a front runner, was 17th, after missing a shift, and Billy Beck had parked his car before completing half a lap. Greaves, who'd recorded the fast time on Friday ;n this car, had gone wide to miss a crash at the start, got pushed sideways down the track into the ribbons, and ran 16th. Probst pulled out a long lead, with Ponder and LeFeuvre, who was now third, running hard behind him. Schwartzburg had dropped to fourth, while Art Schmitt, who'd been tapped in the start melee, moved up to fifth in his Laser, and then to fourth place on the next lap. They ran that way for five laps, Probst gradually lengthening his lead, in spite of the fact that his car was running hot. On the sixth lap Jeff St. Peter moved up into fifth place. Meanwhile, Wuesthoff and Greaves were gradually moving up, and Greaves wanted to get past Wuesthoff, putting on a good show in the attempt. Todd Attig moved his Terminator into fifth place on the seventh lap and St. Peter dropped back. Wuest-hoff and Greaves were now eighth and ninth. But on the ninth lap Wuesfhoff was gone, as another c.v. broke. It was still Probst, Ponder, LeFeuvre, Schmitt and Attig, but then Attig disappeared on the 11th lap. And on the last lap LeFeuvre's race ended when a belt came off and water blew out and got sucked into the motor causing it to stop. So at the finish it was Probst, Ponder, Schmitt, Schwartzburg and Greaves. Ponder, who runs a screen in his windshield area to protect himself from rocks, reported that this was his best Class 9 finish this year, and that it was a "perfect race." He also recorded the fast lap for thiJ event, at 1 :36:651. The next event to take the green flag was the Class 7 race, for the mini trucks. There were 18 entries, and they made it through that hazardous first turn in pretty good shape. Spencer Low had his Nissan out in front, with Scott Taylor, in a Ford, running second, followed by Paul Simon, in another Ford, and then Jeff Kincaid, in still another Ford. Chuck Johnson ran fifth in Greg Smith's Ford, trying to help sort out the not-quite-correct suspension. Low held his lead, but Taylor's truck started to smoke on the second lap and Kincaid had already got past Simon and moved to third. By the fourth lap it looked as if Taylor was closing up on Low, but then his truck seemed to slow and Kincaid began to close up on him. Low was looking good in front but Taylor dropped out with a broken transmission and Kincaid was now second, with Simon in third and Johnson fourth, and Jim Wiggins, in another Ford, trying to go around him. Now Simon was gaining on Kincaid, whose motor was starting to smoke faintly, but he, in turn, was closing up on Low. The audience loved it. Low held his lead, but Simon passed Kincaid in the scoring Simon and Johnson in fourth, then Wiggins. By three p.m., when it was time for the 2-1600s to go for it, the sky was blue and the sun shone brightly around fluffy clouds, but the temperature was still mild. There were 23 of the 1600s, and all of them made it through the first turn, on a dusty track. Generally, if ESPN was going to film an event, the track was watered thoroughly, to prevent dust, but, since ESPN has always had little interest in the limited cars, they usually run on a sticky, not slimy, track, with some dust. Jim Wiggins put his Berrien into the lead, with John Greaves, in his Taylor close behind him. Then it was Greg Smith in a Taylor, Jeff Jones in another Taylor, and Scott Taylor in Brian Frankenberg's Taylor. But Wiggins found that his rear suspension was too soft, and it was bottoming as he landed off the jumps. He was having to cool it a bit, and Greaves was soon moving in for the kill. Taylor came up a position, to fourth, and on the third lap Greaves passed Wiggins to take the lead. They ran like that for several laps, and then Taylor developed a front flat that slowed him a bit, and Jones went past him into fourth. Smith was having trouble with a sticky throttle starting on Fay Statezny had an easy run to victory in his Class 6 Chevy Chevelle after his main competition, Al Fannin faded early, and Fay led all the way on the newly muddied up race track. Statezny continued to lead; while the rest followed in order, and Mike _Rau pulled out before Greg Smith led the 1-1600 battle for a time, kept the leader honest all the way to second place and he took third in the hectic Limited Challenge. Jim Wiggins was a busy man at Crandon, placing third in 1-1600, second in 2-1600 and he put his Berrien home second in the Limited Challenge race. Page 10 November 1991 Dusy Times

the seventh lap. On the ninth lap Taylor lost the tire altogether, and fell way back, and by now, with Greaves way out in front, it was Wiggins in second, Smith third, Jones fourth and Jeff St. Peter, who'd been roughed up some in the start, in fifth. They ran that way a couple more laps, and on the white flag lap Smith's motor was sounding unwell, and sure enough, he couldn't maintain the pace. Greaves got the win, saying he hadn't had to work too hard for it, and Wiggins, owning up to a slight handling problem because of the soft rear end, was second. But Jones had moved into third, while St. Peter was fourth. Smith salvaged a fifth place. The fast lap belonged to Greaves, at 1 :48:256. Class 9 had 21 starters, many from Class 10 ranks, and Don Ponder worked Jeff Polzin races a Chevy El Camino in Class 6, limited to American made his way through the pack to finish second in his Laser by a few seconds. cars, and he had a good run at Crandon, taking a fine second in class. The next event on Saturday's agenda was the Class 4 trucks, who took off, 12 strong, at 3:45. Out front from the flag was Jack Flannery, in his Chevy, Crandon 's native son, and a heavy favorite to win this event. But pushing him hard was Kevin Probst, in his exotic Chevy, followed by Dave Hameister, in another Chevy and then Greg Gerlach, in a Dodge. Joey Flannery, a cousin of Jack's was fifth in a Ford. Dennis Chencharic was parked on the first lap, as his trans went away, in a cloud of smoke. Flannery led into the second lap, but when he went down into the gravel pit he never came out again, to the dismay of the audience.· He'd lost the trans~ mission. Probst, who'd lost his front drive right after Flannery broke, went into the lead, with Hameister now second, Joey Flannery, his carburetor flooding, in third, Gerlack fourth, and Mark Pelletier, in a Chevy Sl0, a close fifth. Probst, with the only truck in the class that boasts a turning brake, built a big lead, while some others fared badly, as Jason Janusz who limped around for four laps, and could go no further, and Scott Smith, whose truck c,aught fire, and he unknowingly drove a half lap with big flames billowing in the bed, before some corner workers convinced him to stop, and they put it out. With the field thinned out, Probst didn't have a lot of traffic on his way to the win, and he got the message that he didn't need to knock himself out to stay in front, and slowed to a car saving pace. Meanwhile, Geoff Dorr, in a Jeep, who'd been sixth at the start, was working his way up. He was up to second on the fourth lap, and from about the eighth lap on pushed extra hard, even recording the fast lap for the class, at 1:37:092, but just couldn't quite catch Probst, who'd got such a good lead by then. So it was Probst, whose truck also spouted . flames at the finish line ( easily doused by the observant course workers), then Dorr, Joey Flannery in third, and Gerlach, who says he's still getting used to I his new Dodge. Probst was: delighted with his win, but even more excited by the fact that his wife, Vickie, had given birth to a baby girl the previous Monday. The Class 3 trucks ran the next · event, and 14 of them took to the track, most getting through the start just fine. Herb Rosborough, in a Chevy, had the lead, with Ron Hill, already smoking, in second place, and Jerry Bundy third in his Jeep. Bill Schirm, Jeep, was fourth, and Gerald Foster was fifth in a CJ7, and close behind' Schirm. Spencer Low came from Arizona to try and repeat his earlier triumph in Class 7, but the Nissan was down a little on power, and Low finished second. Californian Paul Simon brought his Ford Ranger to Crandon, had small nagging troubles and finished third in Class 7 but second in the Challenge event. Dusty Times On the second lap, with Rosborough still leading, nothing changed but fifth place, where Mike Savage replaced Foster, and on the fourth lap, he moved up another notch, and then found himself in third place, as Hill's truck gave up the effort. Rosbor~ ough now had a 16 second lead on second place Bundy, with Savage third, Schirm, being sprayed by a mist of water from a small hole in his radiator, was fourth, and Foster was close behind him, knowing that Schirm was throw~ ing a lot of mud on his radiator, and watching the temperature gauge.

Jeff Jones, here followed closely by Scott Taylor, survived nicely to place his Taylor built chassis home third in 2-1600, while Taylor was fourth in the Limited Challenge race. 1:.-run, and far out in front, Schirm's temperature gauge suddenly read too hot and he decided to park. Foster's was also saying he could be in trouble, but he kept moving right along. Rosborough motored on smoothly to take the win, and Bundy, saying everything was "just great", finished second. Foster, his car really hot, finished third, but Savage, after recording the fast lap for the class during his nice run, at 1:46:727, had dropped out on the tenth lap. Class 2 fielded only nine cars, and the track had been watered into slippery goo for these folks. Art Schmitt put his Laser into the lead, with Scott Schwalbe, in a Taylor, running second, and Dave Vandermissen, Jr., in a Vander-m issen, in third place.

There was to be no joy in Crandon that night. But Evans continued to fly, looking smooth and strong, with Taylor now running second. But a rock had poked a hole in a front brake line, and Scott was running out of brakes. Jimmie Crowder, in a Ford, ran third, Ferdon was back in fourth, and Dave Parsons was fifth in his Chevy. For most of this season, Flannery had been racing in Parsons'· truck while he .. tried to get his own finished. He'd rented the truck, and had made impovements to the suspension and motor, and now Dave had it back, better than when he'd rented it out. There were an even dozen Class 4 trucks and Crandon's favorite Jack Flannery led the first lap, broke, and Kevin Probst took the lead in his Chevrolet and Kevin was never headed en route to victory. Geoff Dorr and his Jeep /:loncho were stuck "in second place all weekend, as Dorr was second in Class 4, second in Class 14 and second in the Heavy Metal Challenge. Laser, Billy Beck, up from Texas, was last in his Mazda powered car, which wasn't running well. Schmitt held the lead, and Schwalbe held second, but Wuesthoff moved into third, and Vandermissen started to smoke some. His dad, Dave Vander-missen, Sr., in another Vander-· missen, had run out of tear offs early, and been unable to see, but was now running right behind. him in fifth. Jeff Probst, who'd gotten a bad start, had his Laser pushing hard, but was running dead last now. Schmitt was building a good lead, and Schwalbe continued to run second, but Wuesthoff coasted to a stop with another broken c.v. That put Vander-missen, Jr. back in third place, with Sr. in fourth and now Probst in fifth. In another lap Probst was third, and gaining on Schwalbe. But by the ninth lap he was parked on the hill, some part of the car having gone up in smoke. the pack was howling at his heels, and Flannery had his new Chevy on the Dodge's bumper. Dennis Ferdon ran third, Scott Taylor had his Ford fourth, and Pete Van DeHey was fifth in his Dodge. They ran a whole lap with Evans in front and Flannery right on his tail, and, while both were fast, it looked as if Evans had the edge on handling. But Flannery's truck is still new. On the second lap Jack landed hard off of one of the front straight jumps, and then quietly pulled out of the race, his front Evans never slowed, and kept building his lead, while Taylor chased in second place. Crowder broke an upper balljoint on the fifth lap, and Parsons moved into third, with Ferdon fourth and Van DeHey in fifth, and trying to get by him. Ferdon faded away on the fifth lap, and Van DeHey pulled out on the next lap with what he called "a phantom fuel problem". Now it was Evans, Taylor, Parsons and Dave Hockers, in a Ford was fourth. Evans had 26 seconds on Taylor. Walker was having nothing but fun, while the truck ran at 182 degrees, and the transmission read 140, just where he wanted them. He went on to take the win, followed in second by a brakeless Taylor, then Parsons, and no one else was on the lead lap. Evans had recorded the fast lap, at 1 :36:099. After a night of hurried repairs for some, and congenial partying for others (particularly those who partook of Crowder's tasty alligator ribs, cooked over the open fire in his pit), Sunday dawned warmer and clear. When the trucks went out for their brief practice session, Flannery's was briefer than most, as the other side of that A-frame broke. So he was towed off to the pits, where his crew made a feverish attempt to get him ready for the big So it was Schmitt, Schwalbe, • Vandermissen and Vandermissen, and no one else was on the same lap. Schmitt said he'd got a nice hole shot at the start, avoided any trouble, and ran clean, also recording the class fast lap, at 1 :41 :298. Schwalbe admitted to a couple of "screw ups", but got his second place, while Vandermis-sen, Jr. bemoaned the fact that he'd chosen the wrong tires for the slippery course. The Senior Vandermissen was fourth, and the last to be on the lead lap. Brian Bernlo~hr, who'd had a flat, was fifth, two laps down. Joey Flannery flew his Ford in fine style in Class 4 action, and he had no real troubles on his way to a solid third in class, a half minute back. The next event, the finale for Saturday, was for the Class 8 trucks. There was lots of pre race conjecture about who'd do what to whom, since this was Flannery's first outing with his new Chevy, and all of Crandon hoped to see him run wheel to wheel with Walker Evans and his Dodge. There were 1 7 trucks, and the start was breathtaking. Evans took the lead off the start grid, but November 1991 Herb Rosborough drives a very tidy Class 3 Blazer and Herb had a perfect run in the Chevy, leading from green to checkered flag and he also took fourth in Class 14 in the Chevrolet.

Challenge race at 1 p.m. The day's racing started off with Class 11 again, the single seaters this time, which simply means the two seaters with no passengers, in most cases. There were 31 entries, but they got through the start, with Dan Baudoux, in his Mirage, in the lead. He was followed by Keith Berard, in a Friday, then Chad Ramesh, in his homebuilt chassis, Mark Steinhardt in a Gilson, and Harold Smith in fifth place. By the time they were into their second lap, they were strung out all over the course, but Baudoux was still leading, and Berard and Ramesh followed. Nita Woulf spun in the mud, took a hit, and lost a tie rod end. Baudoux and Berard continued to lead, but now Cory Friday had brought his Friday up to third place, with Ramesh and Steinhardt still following. As Baudoux built his lead; Dwayne Walkowski, Saturday's winner, in his Sparta, moved into fifth, as Ramesh dropped back, and out. Berard looked as if he might have been closing on Baudoux, but then he developed a broken tie rod end, which made it hard to steer, and lost several positions. Then it was Baudoux, Friday, Steinhardt, Walkowski and Lonnie Andrews, in a Phazer. This group ran in that order, while all around them others dropped out. Dan Rothe broke something in front, Rodney Milligan lost his oil filter and didn't know it for a lap, and Tom Deschaine lost his right front wheel and tire, but kept on moving. Baudoux ran trouble free all the way, took his congratulations and then hurriedly headed off for Michigan, for his other race. He had scored the fast lap of this event, at 1:53:538. Friday, with his steering box going away for the last three laps, was happy with his second place, and Steinhardt was third, saying the track was in good condition. For a change ot pace, the Class 1 cars came out next, with 21 entries ready to go. The very fast V6 Chevy powered Laser of Jeff Probst was first through Turn 1, but he was chased by John Greaves, who runs a Toyota motor, then Art Schmitt, with a Nissan powered Laser, and Lee Wuesthoff in his Laser. Todd Attig had his Terminator in fifth place, but was out before the lap was over. Bill LeFeuvre moved his Berrien, which was powered by his single carbureted Class 9 (1650ccs) motor, up to fifth. They ran this way for four laps, and then there was no Probst, but he'd already scored the fast lap for the day at 1 :33: 146. Greaves now took over the lead, with Schmitt second, Wuesthoff, whose car was smoking, in third, LeFeuvre in fourth and Dave Vandermissen, Sr., in fifth. Behind them Dave Vandermissen , Jr. and Scott Schwalbe were having a good duel, as Schwalbe tried to improve his position. Greaves, Schmitt and Wuest-hoff, who'd put all new c.v.s on his car, continued to lead, then LeFeuvre ran fourth and Van-dermissen, Sr. dropped back six positions. James Struble in a Laser, moved up to fifth place. On the eighth lap Schmitt was beginning to close on Greaves, who was running into lapped Dusty Times Jerry Bundy races his Jeep CJ 8 mainly in the midwest, and he had no real problems getting the rig home second in Class 3, but had no luck on Sunday. traffic, and on the 11th lap front, with Greaves, who'd been Schmitt went by him, and now it running out of gas in the turns, in seemed that Greaves had some second place.

way to the finish. So it was , Greaves; getting his third win for the weekend, followed by Wiggins, Smith, Taylor and St. Peter. Greaves had the fast lap in this event, at 1:47:546. Just at high noon it was time for the two wheel drive and four· wheel drive non-production Challenge race. That means a mix of Classes 13 and 14, totaling 20 entries. Out of the first turn scramble the first vehicle was Norm Thompson in his hybrid, and he was mighty careful to stay out of the loose stuff up on the hill this time. He had Bruce Shilts hot Scott Schwalbe zipped his two seat Taylor into second in Class 2 and he came back later on to drive to a close fourth in the Unlimited Challenge. Dave Vandermissen Jr. flew his homebuilt chassis into third in Class 2 and he on his bumper, and then Lowell finished with his dad, Dave Sr., right on his bumper in a similar car. DeGreef, in ShaBooms, and Jim ·"""· Scott Taylor had his Class 8 Ford running great, but he lost the brakes in the Class 8 race and still placed second, and he was also fifth in the Heavy Metal Challenge.

Thompson had quite a long lead by now, but DeGreef was gaining a little at a time.

The first of the Challenge races was next on the agenda, and this was for the rear engined limited cars. In effect it was almost all 1600s, with just a few brave Class 1 ls giving it a try. There were 28 entries, and the first turn was a massive traffic jam, with cars sliding every which way, and out of which Greg Smith emerged in the lead. A couple of cars, came out of it with flats, and two of the Class 1 ls were never seen again. John Greaves was right behind Smith, and Wiggins behind him, followed by Mark Beabout, in an But Greaves had the lead the second time around, and Smith was second, with Wiggins third, Scott Taylor fourth, and Beabout fifth. Wiggins' car was still soft in the suspension, and Greaves was finding that his was too, so he had to back out of it a bit for the i;r untangle him, and that meant a yellow flag just before the fast sweeper turn for all that time. Meanwhile, Jack Flannery put his Class 4 Chevy into the lead, with Dave Hameister second, Bill Lohf in a Ford, third, Geoff Dorr, Jeep, fourth, and Bob Bemmels, a Class 14 car, in fifth. Flannery held his lead, even with a slightly soft rear suspension, but Dorr moved to second on lap two, Hameister was third, and Mark Pelletier, in his Chevy, came up to fourth, on the third lap. They ran Car# Pos. Driver in that order for many laps, with Flannery gradually pulling out a big lead. He ticked off the fast lap for the race, at 1:36:200, during the time the yellow flag was waving on the sweeper. The lead trucks ran in order through the eighth lap, and then Hameister fell out. But Flannery managed to keep it all together this time, and he got his win, to the delight of the highly partisan audience.

These are passenger sedans with a few safety modifications, and only minor improvements allowed, which pay an entry fee of $25. to race for a few laps on the same course. There were 185 of them this time, and they ran in two heats. That's right! Two heats of 90 plus cars each. It all looked like great fun and mass confusion, and the audience stays 'til the last one quits moving. The 1991 Crandon Brush Run 101 became history, another successful and profitable event for the folks of Crandon to be proud of. One really nice aspect of the Wolfshead Sportsmans Club which promotes this race, is that they're a non profit organiza-tion, and so their extra money, whatever isn't paid out as part of the purse, gets distributed in various ways in the local community. Many local groups help with the race somehow, and earn money for their efforts, so that the whole area benefits a great deal from the race. But the racers benefit too, because they get top notch racing, good pay back, and a welcome that's second to none, whenever they visit Crandon.

41 st 1000 LAKES RALLY Juha Kankkuncn Wins One For Lancia Flying past spectators in the Lancia, the Juhas, Kankkunen and Piironen got their long sought victory on their home event in Finland, and it took a lot of skill, a reliable car and a little luck to get the job done. Juha Kankkunen finally won his home event in Finland after eleven years. This year it was the fastest event in the history of European rallying. The man who had gained the most impressive success in faraway countries, gained two World titles and became a folk hero in countless countries, proved himself in front of his own people, and in the bargain pushed Lancia to the front of the Championship charts as well. A remarkable crash delayed Carl9s Sainz and gave Kankkunen Kankkunen and teammate Didier Auriol the chance to cruise to victory. Disappointment at the performance of the Mitsubishi also helped their cause, but the way the Lancias gave no trouble was an inspiration to them all. It was a rally with something for everyone. Six different brands made fastest times, Nissan was just one second per kilometer slower than the leaders. Ford proved their front differential troubles had eased, and Kank-k u nen' s Jyvaskylan neighbor Tommi Makinen finished his Mazda sixth on his first proper professional drive. Sainz showed more of the mental caliber for which he is becoming well known, by refusing to be put off by the theft of last year's pacenotes which had taken him three years to perfect. Only Subaru went home disappointed. Alen shot into a traditional early rally lead, but gradually the Legacy wilted under the strain and the engine failed. Few of the top drivers retired which makes the ninth place for Blomqvist in the newly ·The Off-Roader's Choice· Page 18 • E-Z UP"' INSTANT SHELTERS Imagine setting up a free-standing shelter in less than 60 seconds!

Toyota was back from Argentina with a psychological champion-ship advantage, but were the old fashioned cars that they and Lancia still used competitive, against the new generation Mitsubishi. Nissan's manager Charles Reynolds remarked, "The rules requiring standard training cars meant there was more emphasis on pre-ra I I y testing." Their driver Stig Blomqvist, had the benefit of many previous 1000 Lakes events, but teammate David Llewellin soon started to discover the intricacies of the event. Some of the team managers arrived late including Peter Ashcroft of Ford; their decision to run Ari Vatanen in a works car rather than contract drivers Delecour, Wilson or Fiorio was a controversial surprise which only a devastating subsequent performance by Vatanen could justify. On Etape 1 hopes for Subaru looked bad when Markku Alen clattered his way to the finish of the first stage with a broken wheel and the tire missing altogether. It had happened only three corners from the end, and it only cost him five seconds. But from then on this was going to be Subaru's day, Alen winning five of the six remaining stages and taking the lead on stage 4. The effort by Prodrive to concentrate on the engine management development was paying o~f. Toyota started off with a vengeance. On the downtown mixed surface stage which opened the rally, Carlos Sainz, · Armin Schwarz and Mats Jonsson all made best time, but they fell back from then onwards. Carlos said it was probably the looseness of the surfaces, which he as first competition car on the road had vividly noticed. He was doing his best with newly rewritten notes, and being only one second behind Alen at day's end made him and Luis Moya "very happy in the circumstances." Ari Vatanen said November 1991 Wotld Champion Carlos Sainz and Luis Moya led a good portion of the rally in the Toyota, but a last day crash dropped the team to a close fifth O!A. Tommi Makinen, with Seppa Harjanne navigating, made his debut in Group A on home ground in Finland and finished the Mazda 323 G TX in a fine sixth place. it was taking time to get used to the seven speed gearbox. At one time he slid wide and hit a wooden stand for putting milk churns on by the side of the road, a coincidence for the driver sponsored by Finland's milk sales promoters. In the five speed Ford Sebastian Lindholm was impres-sively fifth. Juha Kankkunen had no· trouble, but his teammate Didier Auria\ spun out, stalled and lost 20 seconds. Hotly fancied, team Mitsubishi were not going so well. Staffon Parmander explained that Kenneth Eriksson wasn't with it, a minute behind. Timo Salonen had no trouble, but Lasse Lampi was already out with central differential trouble in the third car. Blomqvist had the Nissan in ninth, saying it needed more power. Mazdas were behind, Hannu Mikkola driving 4 km without power steering, and newcomer Makinen saying he was getting used to the gear box. Mitsubishi held the top four spots in Group N the first day. On Etape 2 Markku Alen soon lost the lead and was passed first by Sainz and then Kankkunen. Co-driver Ilkka Kivimaki said with despair, "This has happened before; we have a good first night, then lose the lead driving the sandy stages east of Jyvaskyla as first car on the road. They also had engine management turn down the boost when the temps got too hot. Team proprietor David Richards was unperturbed, saying "tomorrow when Markku is third car on the road, the tracks will be wider and firmer, which will suit car and driver better." So the focus was now on the Spaniard and his struggle to throw off the challenge of Kankkunen. On each stage only the odd second separated them. On stage 16 Sainz had a big fright when the car jumped badly and landed, in top gear at 180 kph, on its nose. Apart from Sainz's nerves, the worst damage was to cooling fans. Auriol was catching up and was soon in fourth, happy with his car and not so afraid of the rally, but it was hard work. It was Vatanen's downfall which let Auria\ through. Struggling with the cumbersome seven speed gearbox, Ari let The Milk Car clip a rock on the inside of a fast curve and it Results -1991 1000 Lakes Results Juha Kankkunen/Juha Piironen SF Lancia Delta lntegrale A' 4:36:52 Didier AurioVBernard Occelli F Lancia Delta lntegrale A 4:37:48 nmo SalonenNoino Silander SF Mitsubishi Galan!

However, nothing kept them from returning to the overall victory and the Class 2 victory in 6: 10:45, although both the Class 10 and 1-2-1600 leaders were pushing hard in overall ick Mancha and Michael Flowers were fastest in the s'ii:n Class 6 :'cmks, as they covered all four laps in the Ford Bronco, built for a pre-runner, and they took the Class 6 victory by two hours. ,. ... ,1..,. . .., . ..... ,._ Mike Mitchell did some fancy antics in his Toyota, but the Class 7 4x4 stayed together nicely and Mitchell and Jon Lee won the class, the only four lap min, truck finisher in the race.

Jim Joyce and David Ramocinski climbed over the rugged terrain handily in the Raceco, and they drove through the silt_ to fourth in Class 1-2-1600, eighth overall. Danny Porter and Larry Rosevear got their four laps done easily, and zipped through the rocky trail to fifth in Class 1-2-1600 and ninth Q!A. Dave Mansker and Dennis Crowley·whipped through the high' country and the silt in the JMR to a line sixth in Class 1-2-1600 and tenth overall. IJlr' it has been a while. Richey had the same comment this year that he made last year, "wrong time of the year to have such a long race." He nailed the overall title by 23 minutes. Keith Jackson, with co-drivers Gordon Zabrecky and Bill Jackson, dtd not have a good day. His troubles started on the first lap when he lost a cylinder, later got lost and had a flat for a total of an hour, 45 minutes down time. After taking the checkered flag, This is the system run by most off road race winners second in Class 2, but an uncommon 13th overall, Keith and Gordon also said they didn't like the heavy silt, but they finished in 7:42:34. Bob Miller drove his Class 10 Raceco into second overall, and he was the second one to complete four laps. His time of 6:33:57 was solid for second overall, and he won Class 10 by 12 minutes.

Dan Fisk was number 3 across the finish line in Class 10 and he . placed seventh overall in 7:07:25.

Ted Smith was fourth in Class 10 at 8: 14:05 in his Chenowth, and David Atwood finished fifth in his Raceco at 9:09:31. Must be some sad stories there.

Bruce Land field and Brett Turley took the flag 22 minutes behind Rich for second in class, 20th overall. They broke a throttle cable coming to the finish line and earlier had lost a trailing arm bushing; that put them down for about a half hour. Brett Turley said they had a long, hard, dirty, fun race. Dave Shively took a solid third in class coming in about five minutes behind the Landfield VW. Dave and co-driver Eric Flood finished on a rear flat but had no other trouble. Of the 13 starters in Class 5-1600 six finished, none close to the .top three. Greg Burgin was fourth, 36 minutes behind third but only a couple minutes ahead of Walter Sleppy, who had 40 minutes on Marc DeShane. All but two of the other seven made at least a lap. Ron Brady took his very first win ever in Class 9, and boy was he pleased. Ron took the lead midway in the race, said he blew Check 2 but a little bird came on the radio and told him he could rectify a DQif he turned around and went back and stopped at the checkpoint, which he did. The only other thing he had to stop for was a refill on the water bottle in the Chenowth. The victory at 8:29:55 was a long time coming and Ron and Bill Brady may still be celebrating. The second Class 9 to the checkered flag was Dave Girdner's Fuoco driven by veteran young driver Rick Johnson. There were problems with the steering box welds breaking, but it was finally welded good enough to take second place at 9: 11:43, and that was their only down time. Third in Class 9 was Sandy Parker's Chenowth with a very hot, tired and dirty Tom Moessner (of Poker Run Fame) coming out from behind the wheel. They thought they ran out of gas on the second lap, but found out finally that it was a bad fuel pump. Tom said they probably had a good hour down time with that little fiasco, then the steering wheel fell off, the bolts came out, and it took time in the CORE pits to find enough bolts to keep the wheel in place for the duration of the race. They had a rough day and finished in 9:19:03. Eleven Class 9s finished four lapsfocluding Gene Bantilan, Gary Noble, Dan Richardson, Michael Rix, Dee Jay Owens, Mike Colgan, Dennis Peterson, and Tim Jaynes.

THE TEXAS CHALLENGE Jim Maness Wins The Rock N' Roll ISO The second annual Rock N' Roll 250 last August lived up to its billing as the 'rocks' consumed numerous tires and wheels during the race on Saturday and the 'rolls' were consumed at the awards Sunday morning along with a lot of coffee. For the first time this season a Pro car won for the second time, and also for the first time a Sportsman entry was the official first overall car to finish. Everyone had run the course on Friday which was 12.5 miles in length for this race, and were ready for the 9:00 a.m. start Saturday morning. The number 1 draw was Cecil Robertson in his Pro 2 entry sponsored by CHR Machine of Odessa. Roberston had won in July and had a fresh engine for this race. As usual he was one of the favorites. Next off the line was Jim Maness in the Pro 2 entry sponsored by Maness Enterprises of Kermit, TX and Sprint Chassis Works of Odessa. This entry had broken a transmission last month while leading the race. Next up was Lee Neel of San Antonio driving a Funco in Pro 1. This was Neel's and co-driver Mike Broadway's first race at this course. James Martin in his Funco, sponsored by Permian Supply of Odessa was off the line next. Martin has led the points series for the Pro cars all year and has finished at or near the top every race running in Pro 2. Brett Autrey, a newcomer to the off road series was up next in his Pro 1 Sprint Chassis two seater. This car was definitely one to watch out for as he was running lap times that were within seconds of the fastest run during practice. The Sportsman entry of Frank Schneider followed Autrey off the line, and he was the one to beat among the Sportsman entries. Schneider's Sprint Sport has finished the last three races without any major problems. Schneider says his secret is "drive conservatively and let the other guys break." The last car off the line was the Sportsman 2 entry of John Mapp, a Sprint Chassis car sponsored by Mainka's Auto Repair of Andrews, Texas. For this race the Pro 1 class would be running 20 laps and Pro 2 would do 19. Sportsman 2 was listed at 18 laps and Sportsman 6/ 7 at 17 laps. The computer had said the fast lap would be 17. 70 and the total -time required to finish the race would be 5 .9 hours. Just how smart is this computer that Midwest Racing employs? Well, the fast time for the race was set on the first lap by Jim Maness and his time was 17 .90! Now most folks would say that is pretty smart! Cecil Robertson was in second after one lap with a time of 19.14, followed by Martin, Autrey and Neel. The Sportsman class saw Mapp gain about 2 7 seconds on Schneider as Mapp ran a 21.01 first lap. Maybe Schneider's "secret" is something for Mapp to consider as Mapp came back to the pits shortly with a broken side plate. Seems like it hasn't been that long ago it was Schneider who couldn't finish a race. Meanwhile back in the Pro ranks Maness continued to set a fast pace with a second lap time of 18.18 with Martin improving to 19.16 and Robertson falling off a bit to 19.88. Lee Neel was still learning the track as his second lap was recorded at 27.25, while Autrey ran a 22.67. Schneider's Sportsman car improved to a 20.92. At the end of four laps it was Maness still in the lead, now ahead of Martin by seven minutes. Another seven minutes back was Brett Autrey who had moved into third place. Robertson had developed alternator prob-lems and was being towed back to the pits for repairs~ but to no avail as they were finished for the day. The San Antonio entry had developed front end problems and Mike Broadway, who was now driving in relief of Neel, was 40 minutes back of first place. After two more laps Maness had increased his lead to 20 minutes over the now second place car of Brett Autrey. Martin's Funco had developed a bad miss in the engine and the pit crew was trying desperately to locate the problem. His fifth lap was a very long 77 minutes. Neel's car continued to have problems and was averaging about one lap an hour. At the end of lap 9 Maness brought his Sprint Roadrunner into the pits for a driver change and gas. He had completed the first nine laps in 2:50.17 and had a 16 minute lead over the second place car of Autrey in his two seater open entry. Autrey was gaining ground though as he ran a very quick 18.20 on lap 9. Martin was in third place, 53.62 behind Autrey and seemed to have his problems behind him as he ran his quickest lap on lap 10 at 18.43. Maness had told co-driver Tommy Bowling that the car was starting to starve for gas on the top end, but felt like it was not a major problem. However the lap times slowed by more than a minute and then disaster struck Bowling on lap 12 as a very big rock flattened a rear tire. Between the fuel problem and the flat it took a little over one hour to complete the lap. This allowed Autrey to go a lap up on Bowling, and he was within about ten minutes of taking over first place, having to run one more lap than Maness/Bowling. Martin had closed the gap to 23 minutes behind first and was in third place. Meanwhile the Sportsman entry of Schneider was in the pits for a driver change and had a real good chance of being the first overall finisher. Bowling had another long lap on 13 as the pit crew failed to solve the fuel problem. After pitting again, a stopped up fuel filter was found to be the culprit, and just in time as Martin had closed to within 13 minutes. Autrey had major problems on his 13th lap and recorded the long lap of the race at 99. 71. Bowling lowered his lap times to the mid 18s and the race was now for second place as both Martin and Autrey were having numerous problems with Martin second and Autrey about nine minutes behind. Bob Bowling was now in the driver' s seat of Schneider's Sportsman car and ran the quickest lap for his team with a 20.52 final lap and a total time for the day of 6:51.55.

Arras won on both Saturday and Sunday, when he scored the overall in a bunch of combined classes. The second annual HORA Desert Championships, at Willow Springs International Raceway, on the first weekend in September, produced some good racing, but darned few spectators to watch it. With no big event sponsor, there'd been no budget for advertising to speak of, and scant crowds on race weekend were the result. Only a fraction of the numbers that came last year, then estimated at 7 to 10,000, drove out to the raceway this year. The schedule, like last year's, called for registration, technical inspection and contingency on Friday, along with a couple oflaps of late afternoon practice. But, while last year's contingency row was adjacent to the race track, this year it was two towns and 35 minutes away, in an Auto Mall in Palmdale. The Saturday and Sunday schedule called for early morning practice for everyone, then a short break for course repair, and racing to start at 1 p.m. Page 26 Saturday's events were labeled "heats", and the payback was 40% of the total, and the choice of position on Sunday's starting grid.

The two trucks, a mini and a full sized, are representative of classes that run in the La Rana series, and they said there would have been more entrants, but the HORA required fuel cells, and La Rana won't be requiring them until next season, so most of the class hasn't installed them yet. Bill Waltman ran his Mini the full three and a half\aps, and Michael Yarman got all the way around in his full size truck. In Class 9 Jack Millerd repeated · his last year's effort, and got out in front and just stayed there. There . was some good racing behind '. him, and John Holmes ended up second, with Craig Bernal snaggling third place, as Nate Ellis missed a shift and dropped back to fourth. The Class 11 ranks included Tom Haliburda, in his ten year old car. He put it right into the lead, where he stayed to the end. Travis Howard took second place, while John Howard, Michael Duenas and Chris Woodward all lost their transmissions.

He stayed there all the way, as Holmes dropped to third, victim of a sagging rear suspen-sion, and Bernal moved up to finish second.

I t Tom Haliburda brought out his aged Class 11, and surprised the others by winning on Saturday, but he broke down early in the Sunday competition. With the desert landscape behind him Chris Woodward made up for his lack of a finish on Saturday to finish second on Sunday in the Class 11 contest. Bill Wartman drove his Toyota Stone Stock Mini truck to the trophy on both Saturday and Sunday, and he was the only entrant in this desert class. Michael Yarman was the lone entrant in Full Size Stone Stock pickups, but he covered most of the laps on both Saturday and Sunday in his Chevrolet. Carlos Zuniga flew the man made lumps at Willow Springs to second in 5-1600 racing on Sunday after finishing fourth in the Saturday heat race. Jesse Rodriguez got his new paint job a little tattered in Class 5-1600 competition, but Jesse survived to finish third in the close Sunday race. i;r lead. Woodward followed aiong into second place, and by the time Duenas got going again, he was·third. Travis, who said his throttle pedal stuck on, used the brake a lot, and got the win, with Woodward and Duenas following in second and third. The third race of the day had only one class on the track, the 5-1600s. This group had to have a restart, and they lost Kathy Fay in the interval. On the second start Jerry Whelchel got out in front, but Dave Hendrickson was working hard on his bumper. They traded positions a couple of times, while Carlos Zuniga and Walt Mathews settled the matter of who would be third. At the end of the heat it was Hendrickson, Whelchel, Matthews and Zuniga. Desert Champ, Wayne Cook, in his new short course car, ran afoul of a sticky throttle, and rolled over in the hairpin turn. Sunday's race also had a restart, because someone had jumped the light, and on the second try, it was Hendrickson, whose car was new for this weekend, out in front. Jesse Rodriguez ran second, with Mike Williams drove Glen Elliott's Class 10 car to a fine third in the Saturday heat race, and Mike came back strong on Sunday to lead from lap 2 onward and he won the race handily. Zuniga third and Matthews fourth. Once again Zuniga and Matthews were the good race. As Hendrickson pulled way out in front, and Rodriguez followed, Zuniga ran third, and suddenly Matthews' motor sounded unwell. And an instant later it was on fire. He stopped and the flames were extinguished, but he didn't go any further. It got exciting as Stacy Fay stuffed her car into a berm. Joe Giffin rolled over, and Greg Sullivan did a straight-up nose stand while trying to pass the Cook car. Hendrickson got the win, saying his motor wouldn't have made another lap . . Zuniga passed Rodriguez on the last lap to take second place, and Jesse finished third. In the motorcycle classes, which came next, the Class 21 winner was Johnny Campbell on both days, and Travis Howard took Saturday's Class 22 event, while Jeff Kelly won on Sunday in that class. In Class 24, the small ATVs, the winner was Alan Levinson both days, and the big A TV honors went to Ike Bruck-mann on Saturday, and Cameron Coatney on Sunday. The fifth race was a mixture of Class 10 and the Chenowth Mini Mags. Mike Sandoval was back again in Class 10, and he was out in front, with Tom DeNault trying hard to catch him.

DeNault got himself into the lead, but Sandoval repassed him, and then stayed in front to take the win. DeNault was second, and Williams third. In the Mini Mags, the lead belonged to Lonnie Peralta, with Kirk McDaniel running second. Then Rory Chenowth, in Scott Steinberger's car, moved up to second place, but he broke a belt on the last lap, and dropped out. Peralta took the win and McDaniel was second. On Sunday the Class 10 cars started first, and even though Willie Melancon rolled over in the first turn, the officials went ahead and flagged off the Mini Mags, who had to drive around Melancon. Mike Williams had the early lead, but then Sandoval went by him, and then Williams repassed Sandoval and took over the lead on lap two. On the third lap it was still Williams, and then Sandoval got up in front, and tipped himself over on his side at the east end of the course. In the meantime, Jeff Quinn, who'd readjusted his fuel pressure since Saturday, ran a close third, and now he was second, but Dan Fisk was right on his bumper. Williams was now firmly in front, and he went on to take the win, while Fisk passed Quinn, and then Quinn tried hard to get him back.

Mike Williams, in the desert unlimited car, ran second to Arras all the way, and finished there too. Of the Short Course 1650cc cars, it was Gary Gall, who managed to stay close behind Arras and Williams all the way, and was never challenged for his win. Mark Broneau, out of a couple of years retirement, finished second.

It finished Dave off for that event, and didn't do Paul's bodywork any favors either. Dave's competi-tion, Jerry McDonald, had his own problems, as he trundled his Chevy into his "hot pit", to change a flat front tire on the third lap. By the time he got around the course again the new one was also flat, but he managed to get to the finish line, to get his win in Class 7 4x4.

He lost a full lap fiddling with it, and McDonald went on to take the main event win. In Class 7S, Paul Simon led Willie Valdez and his Ford, which couldn't get through the last lap, all the way to take the win. Spencer Low, who was variously reported as driving his Nissan in either 7S or Old Mini, was either second in 7S, or the winner, and sole contestant, in Old Mini.

His only class competition was Curt LeDuc, in Billy Bunch's truck, who ran a ways back, then fell out on lap two with the rear suspension disconnected because of heim joint failure. Walker never wavered, and stayed in front of the pack, a third of a lap· in front of the next truck by the end of the heat. In Class 4, Steve Kelley had his Chevy in front, followed by Dave Ashley in his Ford, and then Greg George, filling in for Timmy Lee Pruett, in Pruett's Ford, because Tim had hurt his neck. But George broke on the second lap, and left the struggle to the other two. Kelley took the win, as Ashley got into traffic, and couldn't catch him.

VORRA YERINGTON 150 Todd Denton Takes Top Honors on Labor Day Photos: Matt Marcher/John Ames ~ -Todd Denton turned the fast lap of the day on his first round and led all the way, churning through the Yerington dust in his Porsche powered two seater to win overall and take Class 2 by nearly an hour. Team Verling is not invincible · in the desert. Just ask Todd Denton. Denton 's five lap elapsed time of 5:57:47 earned him overall first place honors at the VORRA Yerington 250 on September 1 in Nevada. Paced by an opening lap of 1:03:49, the fastest lap of the d~y in any class, Denton not only defeated the Verlings, who finished seventh overall and second in Class 2 by 47 minutes, but also broke Team Verling's strangle hold on VORRA's desert races this season. Denton, who finished fourth in Class 2 at the Yerington 400 in ~Ac.~ : .. • May, had to work to get his first desert win in this, the last desert race of the season. Leading after two laps, Denton faded to third on lap 3 after a driver change and pit stop for new shocks. He fell behind the team of Garen McCune and Larry Zimmerman and Utah's Class 10 racer Mel Tom . Dent on s a i cl he was "driving like a madman" in his Porsche powered race car to regain the lead. That all out approach paid off as he recaptured the lead on lap 4 with a torrid 1:06:17. But, even as he was chasing, then later holding off Tom and McCune/Zimmerman, one word was going through Denton's mind: Verling. "I was looking for Pat Verling," Denton said. "And I was thinking, 'Pat's coming, Pat's coming!" Little did Denton know, however, that Team Verling could do nothing but sit in their pit and wait as their pit crew worked feverishly to install a fresh transmission to replace the one blown on lap 3. One of the keys to the Verlings past desert victories this season was their ability to avoid mechanical breakdowns. Now they could only wait. But they did not have to wait long.

Chad Hall said he and Josh had no problems with the truck on its first run since the ill fated Nevada 500, other than a slight problem with the steering. "We put in a lot of new stuff," Chad said, "so we just poked around on the first two laps." The Hall Dodge was the only five lap finisher in the four rig Class 4 action. Chad and Josh Hall refurbished the old Dodge from its Nevada 500 mishap and the trusty 4x4 brought them yet another victory in Class 4, in fact, they were the only five lap finisher in the class.

It wasn't a good day for Class 4 drivers. Tom Scahill, Chevy, got in two-laps, both under 1:30, then retired in second place. Mike Povey finished one lap in the old Ford for i;r -7:57:58. At the Yerington 400 suspen-sion problems put Sam Berri out of the race. At the 250 it was a CV boot and a rear hub c1ssembly that knocked him out of the running. Berri had run nearly identical laps of 1:08:53 and 1:08:41 before trouble struck on lap 3. After that ill fated 4½ hour third lap, Berri turned a quick 1: 10:43 before bowing out in fifth spot with four laps done. Even with the DNF here Berri still holds a command-ing lead in the Class 2 overall points with only two races remaining. Berri has 262 points to Verlings 208. Berri wasn't the only one who found hard luck in Nevada, as he was one of 43 that did not finish. Garen McCune and Larry Zimmerman saw their share of frustration also. They were right there among the leaders, briefly holding the overall lead on lap 3, then mechanical problems put an end to an otherwise fine day on lap 4. Covering just one lap were Craig Watkins, John Smith, and Keith Robb, while the other three recorded no time on the first lap. Larry Deaton, favored to take this year's 250 in his recently purchased Penhall car, saw any hopes of victory dashed on the first lap. Deaton was involved in a spectacular wreck that witnesses say he was lucky to walk away from. In Class 10 Randy LaPlante couldn't catch the quick Mel Tom coming in at 7:42:49, but was the only other driver in the class to complete all five 50 mile laps, ensuring him of second place. Paul Spitler, Ace Bradford and Rick Philastre each got in four laps, Dale Smith covered three, and Chris Oberg had no time recorded. Class 10 points leader Dale Smith still holds a comfort-ab le lead over Bradford and Philastre, but the race between them is anything but comfortable. Bradford leads Philastre by two points, with two races remaining in the series. The l-2-1600s had more cars finish, seven, than any other class. After the 1-2 finishes by Lott and Scudder, it was Ken Ruff, who was not that far behind, 11 minutes, at 6:44:38, taking third place.

Veteran Oon German rounded out the small field as mechanical problems claimed his Jeep on lap 1. In Class 9 it was the same old story as Mike Bishop's Blue Ma?C racing team won again in the five car field. The Challenger Class ran only four laps, as did the Sportsman Classes. Bishop's four lap time was 6:30:08, and he sounded as if he couldn't have been happier with his perfor-mance or more relieved. Though he is poised to clinch his fourth consecutive Class 9 title, Bishop had been plagued by mechanical setbacks this season, but not at the 250. "Finally, none of the little things," Bishop said, referring to In Class 9 Mike Bishop and starting driver Gordon Tarbell had their first those setbacks.

Powered by what is essentially a snowmobile engine, Haas' Mini Mag still wasn't taken too seriously, even after his impressive second place finish at the Yerington 400. Nobody's laughing now as Haas' elapsed time was the best in the entire Sportsman field. That included Sportsman Veteran winner Jeff O'Callaghan. Haas' 5:40:45 bested O'Callaghan's time by 13 minutes. In victory row Haas was already thinking ahead to the Willow Springs race, saying he would win that event also, but he didn't.

"The Straight Poop From The Big W ahzoo" SUMMER PAR TY -A typical group of Checker regulars and 'seldom seens' showed up to help Gregg and Dee celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary at Gregg's scenic picnic grounds. Symonds put on an affair that even the DWP would have been proud of, great food and drink, a band, an unknown comic, and a lot of nice people to party with. The Club continued again this year with the running of the popular 'Checkers Engine Lotto'. Jeff Strait won big bucks with a guess of 3 minutes and 16 seconds, while a number of Gegg's non-Checker guests looked on in complete bewilder-ment, as the VW engine died a fiery death. Speaking of bewilderment, John Boyer was even there, a true Checker character if there ever was one, along with a number of other old timers, including a rare appearance by Jim Sumners. All in all, it was a very nice affair, although a little tame by Checker standards. This was probably a result of respect for Gregg, considering the large number of non-Checker guests, and the fact that the party ended before dark. Obviously a smart move by Symonds, who's been around long enough to know that Checkers change a bit when the sun goes down. BAJA-DE-LOU-ENSENADA - Peralta had his usual 600+ entries and everything looked just great until the rains came, and stayed. But with a typical Checker attitude of, "Weather? What weather? We don't care 'bout no stinkin' weather!", Lou and his crew pressed on. The clouds sent down torrents of rain that sent numerous flash floods racing across the desert and turned San Felipe's way modern racing stadium into 'Lake Lou'. Cancel? Hell No! Peralta simply shortened his course as large parts of it were cut off. Thumper sloshed to a third in Class 10, and Mai-occo/Robertson grabbed a second in Class 100. Sadly 'the Hawk' broke, but if ya stop in at Lonnie's the next time you're in S.F. I'm sure you can get all the grim details. Maiocco, one of the most visible prospective members in quite a while, graciously gave his new bride a chance to go swimming while they were down in San Felipe for the race. It seems that on the way out of town Morgan misjudged the depth of a 'small puddle' and got stuck. As they sat in their van, with the water outside almost up to the bottom of the windows and rapidly filling up the inside, Morgan pointed to his bum leg and convinced his new wife that SHE must go for help. Reluct-antly, she finally entered the muddy water and eventually made it to dry land. Fortunately, as Checker luck would have it, she found Ta Ta growing to a bar stool in the first cantina she looked in and the rescue process quickly got underway. Finally, after getting towed out, dried out & wrung out, the newlyweds finally got out of town and headed DustyTimcs home. It would appear that Morgan is irideed training his new bride properly, right from the git! As a reminder, I would like to once again go over a few things. This Checker Column-is written for Checkers only and only Checkers will be mentioned by name, with the possible exception of promoters, special guests or others that need to be named for the sake of the report. The column's intent is to inform and amuse our members, generally with tongue-in-cheek humor, with tales about various members, Club activity and the issues of the day that affect us as Checkers. Good natured criticism (that means something that you wouldn't let most people say about you) will be dispensed strictly according to a member's actions, or rumors thereof, with little regard for his status or size of ego, or even the size of the member himself for that matter. Of course, if by chance an overly sensitive member has been able to slip through our stringent membership process, I suggest he write directly to the Wahzoo describing his sensitivities in detail and I'll act accordingly. Trust me on this! Also, if you feel that you have been seriously wronged by something written in this column, or would like to comment on the tone or direction of this column, I encourage you to let me know. This is your column and all suggestions or criticism from my fellow Checkers will be seriously considered. A direct link to the Big Wahzoo has now been established through the IDRA's Director, and fellow Checker, George Thompson. Direct your comments to: The Wahzoo, Box 1683, Ojai, CA 93024. Once again, the reason that the identity of the Wahzoo is kept secret is so that the personality of the Checker that writes this stuff does not influence the meaning of what you read. To illustrate the importance of this point, consider for a moment how you would view this monthly column if you knew that it was written by Peralta? OK, now stop. Now consider how much differently you would interpret the same column if you knew that it was written by Kassanyi. How about Thompson? Hibbard? Uncle Max? Dunn? Clarence? etc. etc. You must admit that you would read it differently. The importance of this is critical to the success of the column. The Wahzoo would like to take a moment to recognize the efforts of those few Checkers that do know who the Wahzoo is. Not only do they regularly feed me info' for this column, but also have remarkably, and' above all expectations, actually kept our secret! This network of spies, led by the Iii' Wahzoo', provides a wealth of information that no one member could possibly acquire alone. Interestingly enough, most of them don't know the identity of all the others. The Wahzoo proudly salutes their integrity. Finally, and most important of all, this column is NOT the official voice of the Checkers. Rather, it is simply a report to my fellow members about what's been going on! And the Wahzoo would appreciate it if the Club whiners would keep that in mind when they read it. If your race_ heroics or sad story was left out of a race report, sorry 'bout that, but ya gotta speak up and tell somebody other than your wife if ya want to see it reported here. OK with that out of the way, lets get into some of the ugliness that has been part of a number of recent meetings. It seems that the Club Officers have come under serious attack from a number of our more vocal members regard-ing the way the Club is currently being run. After this controversy got going, Peralta added fuel to the fire by sending out a four page letter to most of the members clearly stating his blunt and controversial views on the issue. Lou's letter also revealed that another member, who is right in the thick of this, might also be playing a little politics here. Seems Hibbard has made it clear that he is running for President to straighten things out. This will surely cause some members to question whether or not that cure would be worse than the problem. On the other hand, Clarence had indicated there are no problems and that he is going to try for a three-peat next year and continue on course. Yes guys, it's election time again! YEAR BOOK UPDATE -Uncle Max is currently working on a new Checkers year book that will be celebrating 20 years of excellence in desert racing. If you haven't gotten one of his info sheets give him a call and make sure he has all the straight poop regarding your personal life, sexual fantasies and racing heroics! WILLOW SPRINGS RACE -Utgard 's second Annual HORA Desert Championships had much better weather this year, a few less spectators than last time, but still some great racing. Seeley grabbed a second in Class 5, Lonnie won the Mini Mag heat on Saturday and finished ahead of his dad on Sunday. The Cook's rolled it on Saturday and broke on Sunday. Willie put a Class 10 motor in his 1-2-1600car and was not a factor, as Mike Duenas had the Class 11 race sewed up but · broke a distributor cap on the last lap. Peralta hosted the 'Checker party and pig out' at trackside, and those that stayed late were front row center for an old time Checkers' spectacular Evil Knievel act. Long after the fireworks had cooled down, Al Abel decided that his Harley needed a walk. After firing it up, he found his way out onto the main paved road course and charged off into the night. Witnesses' said that you could hear that chopper really pop as he grew more confident going through the S turns on the backstretch, unseen in the darkness. As Able laid that big iron over in the final turn before the front straightaway, he was oqviously unaware of the ton of dirt ahead, that had been laid across the paved track for the water trucks. Surely it would be hard for the normal person to imagine what a 'puckering' experience it must have been for Al, leaning down on the tank for more speed, to suddenly realize that that brown thing looming ahead is actually a dirt mound clear across the track. Suddenly, our hero is flying through the moonlit night with that growling Harley right on his ass. No accurate measurement was possible because of the spur of the moment nature of this attempt, but if there is a category for 'Jumping for Distance on a Chopper' I know Al's gotta be right up there. Utgard, who is excited about his event becoming a HORA points ra!=e next year, reportedly was so impressed that he is even considering building the whole fireworks show next year completely around Abel. Rumor has it that the finale will consist of Al doing a flaming red, white and blue jump on his Harley into the lake, while a heavy metal band plays "Born Free". Hey Al,· stop down and see us some Wednesday night, that is of course, when you're up and movin' around again. Get well Brother!

The Bridgestone International is the only Australian race which does not have breaks during the race. The non-stop format also means pit stops have to be fast and precise. Many teams planned to have only one stop. Around the half-way mark, Craig Martin had the Rabbit-turbo, Bridgestone car out to a 7 minute lead, over Andy Brown's Nissan-turbo ARB buggy. Les Brown (no relation), was next in his Nissan 1600cc, Goodyear machine. Third to ninth were all in fact 1600cc cars, with Tuisk, Buchanan, Lord, Terry Rose, Mark Burrows, and Boyes. Then came Hayden Bentley driving in his first National event, in his Class 1. Si Heaslip was carrying the single seat flag high in eleventh place. The 1200cc, Class 3 battle was in Bob Mowbray's favor, although Bruce Watman was very much in touch. The Baja battle was very close with Craig Baker, Steve McDougall, and Tony Thornton all within the same minute after five hours!! As expected Mark Manns was running away with the Class 5, 2WD race and running 21st overall in the Rodeo pickup. Peter Briggs in a wild Holden pickup was next but some two laps behind. Andrew Maggs was leading the Challenger buggies. In the Class 7 4x4s, Les Siviour had only 7 seconds lead over Grahame Baxter after four laps; both were in Nissan Patrols. Peter Hadlow had command of Class 8, actually running 14th overall in the Mitsubishi pickup. Ken Smith's immaculate Isuzu, Rodeo pickup was still in there if Hadlow faltered. Unfortunately, Bob Stansfield was now a spectator. Bob runs a Class 1 Nissan pickup, which is actually an ex-U.S. stadium truck. The turbo six cylinder called it quits for them. Daren Wells, however was still in there after having to change a tie-rod, then pit again to straighten that tie-rod: the trees trying to take him out also!! Many other Class ls had worse luck: Doug McMillan had another gear-box failure, Dave Stuchbery lost a front wheel with hub failure, Peter Glover snapped a front end, and Trevor Crisp's radiator fell loose.

Just 18 years old Rudi Tuisk drove his first race ever here at Kempsey last season, and this year he and Michael Harris nabbed second in class and overall with a great drive in the Rivmasta. Terry and Maureen Rose scored their career best in the Mazda powered Hunter, third overall and third in Class 2 in a relatively trouble free run over the many on course hazards. Fabio Zarfati pulled off Australia's biggest ever jump in the prologue in the Mitsubishi Pajero, but he went out of the race with a broken ball joint. Ian Hedley won the Tin Top Shoot Out in his strong Ford Bronco, but in the race he destroyed the whole left side of the rig against a tree. Ken Smith, Tom Orcher and Steve Renn combined to bring the Isuzu Rodeo across the finish line second in Class 8 and 21st overall in the 4x4. Peter Briggs and Shane Fuller had a good day in the Holden pickup surviving the rough course to finish a long second in the 2WD Class 5. Warr-en Irons' Baja hit a tree hard tearing off the whole front corner, but then a bigger hit was Ian Hedley who destroyed the entire left side of the Shell, Ford Bronco on another tree.

Terry Rose had mond up to third, but had Mark Burrows close behind in a Bridgestone car. Neville Boyes had withdrawn after being hit in the now blinding dust. Then Daren Wells retired; the tie rod finally giving in out the back. The Watman's fast Class 3 was also a late withdrawal with engine woes. All attention then focused on the finish line as Brown, then Tuisk crossed the line very close; it was up to the timekeepers to announce the winner. The end result saw Les Brown and Leigh Jones snatch the victory for Goodyear by beating Ruisk by ¾ minute. Incidentally a Bridgestone car has not won the Bridgestone International since 1986.

Graeme Horn and Ian Jones drove this Mitsubishi Ga/ant to third place in Class 5, and they were the first sedan to finish, missing second by just one minute. Barrie Cheers and Richard Ryan favor the older style Jeep for modified 4x4 racing, but their eight laps were good for fourth in class. John Bloem and Gary Kincaid got in all nine laps in the Lada Niva 4x4 and they earned third in Class 8, the last finisher in that class. ~ - place was a career best for husband and wife: Terry and Maureen Rose in yet another Class 2, this one had Mazda power. To say Class 2 buggies dominated would be an under-statement; they filled the top seven places. Fourth outright was Mark Burrows, then followed Bill Buchanan, Stuart Lord, and local, Paul Osborne. One had to look back to eleventh overall to see the first Class 1. That belonged to Neill Morrison and Geoff Heather, who drove a constant and trouble-free race in the Datsun powered Hunter buggy. Class 1 minor placings went to: Cliff Alderton; Hayden Bently, who finished without any brakes; then Bill Croft. Croft had clawed his way through from dead-last to 18th overall, and now seems unbeatable in the Class 1 ,championship. The Class 3 race, once again went to Bob and Jeanette Mowbray in the Datsun 1200cc, Rivmasta. They also finished 15th overall. Behind them in Class 3 came Allan Hunt, Stewart Latter, Michael Boaden, and Ted Potter. Peter and Glenn Had/ow again won top spot in modified 4x4 Class B in the Mitsubishi Triton adding to their long string of victories, and they drive this truck to and from the races all over Australia. The Class 4, Baja clash was tight all day. Tony Thornton had gone with a blown motor, which left Craig Baker and Steve McDougall to fight it out. At the checker it was McDougall's win by 44 seconds!! Despite a broken shock tower, then a faulty clutch cylinder, Nev Taylor soldiered on to get third. Mark Manns overcame his bad luck of last round, and really had the Chev VB honking as he picked up the 2WD victory and finished a great eighth overall. It was close for second with Peter Briggs' Holden edging out Graeme Horn's Mitsubishi sedan by just under a minute. Graham Smith brought his earlier Mitsubishi into fourth, while Greg Bernard filled fifth in his Datsun PS 10.

In the limited 4x4 Class 7, Les Siviour was debuting an all new Nissan Patrol, and what a debut:" first in class and 9th overall, even beating the modified 4x4s. Next in as per usual was Grahame Baxter's earlier model Patrol. Third was a fine return to racing for Paul Zacka. Debuting an Isuzu Rodeo pickup, Zacka was actually Australian Champion in '82 and hasn't raced for many years. Despite losing 4WD and various shocks, Zacka held out the Mick Howard Mitsubishi pickup. The local father and son team; Peter and Glen Hadlow, once again picked up the Class 8 trophy in the turbo Mitsubishi Triton. Their record is phenomenal: in 34 starts, they have 33 class finishes. They also drive the Y okahama truck to and from all the races all over Australia!! Despite losing third gear, the Isuzu General Motors backed Rodeo of Ken Smith clung onto second. In third was a remarkable drive for John Bloem in the Nissan-powered Lada Niva. John drove the car up from Melbourne, ran all day without a pit stop, then drove it back to Melbourne. Barrie Cheers in a Jeep took fourth in Class 8, ahead of Les Marshall's turbo Suzuki which had trouble with gearbox mounts. The sole single seater, Si Heaslip continued to once again be the only finisher and finished 17th overall and will now carry 901 again for next year. So they were some of the lucky 22% that were finishers in what definitel y is Australia's toughest off road race; the Bridgestone International. Altho ugh it was round four of the 5-race Aust-ralian Championship, this win puts Les Brown in an unbeatable position to become overall '91 Champion.

There is a whole lot of room for carg·o in the 4Runner as the rear seats fold down also to increase cargo capacity. The Toyota V6 engine, coupled with the sleek lines of the 4Runner make it easy on the eyes and easy on the gas bill too! Even with a heavy load in the cargo bay, the 4Runner maintains a close to level attitude: thanks to its firm springs and shocks. Toyota IWD Runner Text & Photos: John Calvin Equally at ease either in the wood, desert or on the street, the 4Runner is functional as well as handsome. Let's see now, a 2 wheel drive 4Runner? That's right, there is a big market for the 2 wheel drive 4Runner, bigger than one might suspect. The 4Runner we picked _ up from Toyota was red, real red and it was a fun vehicle to drive. This particular vehicle was of the automatic persuasion with the nice little button on the gear selector lever that puts you into overdrive, a lovely option that allows your engine to loaf along almost at idle while you careen down the road. There is no indication when the overdrive is engaged, only a light on the facia to let you know the overdrive is NOT engaged. This 1991 4Runner was attached to the ground with Bridgestone Desert Duelers, P225/75R15 mounted on a six spoke deep dish wheel. As usual, we were equipped with a full size spare, however, this one was' mounted beneath the frame and can be lowered easily to the ground and also reinstalled easily. The front end geometry is protected by a formidable looking skid plate which would ward off most obstacles and would help put your mind at ease while traveling off the paved surfaces. As usual, the 4Runner came equipped with most everything available and as usual, we utilized all of them. The 4Runner came with front disc brakes, drum rears, with anti-lock feature and they did stop the vehicle with ease. The parking brake is of the pull variety, mounted under the dash, easy to grab and use. For the real amenities of life we Dusty Times were equipped with power steering, automatic windows and automatic door locks, all con-trolled from the driver's arm rest and the driver's window also has the feature of the automatic operation, which lowers the window completely by depressing the button fully. Also mounted on the driver's arm rest are the controls for the outside mirrors. The electric moon roof is a most welcome option as I personally like to look up and see the sky (night or day) and, tiring of this I close the sun shade. Cruise control is another option, all controls thereof being situated on the center portion of the steering wheel, most convenient. I use the cruise control frequently while beating my way back and forth to Vegas and this particular model operates very smoothly. An 'indicator ·light notifies you that the cruise control is engaged. The steering wheel tilts to 8 different positions, assuring one to meet your needs. The radio is a fully ~quipped sound system, AM/FM Stereo with tape player and six program buttons along with all the various controls for bass and treble, front and rear, left and right, etc. along with the "ACS" button which allows you to select the proper frequency response for various types of music and/ or voice, all graphically displa yed in the station monitor window. Directly above the radio is a nice pull out cup holder which I used constantly. The only problem , it block s the air conditioning vent and it sure does cool off a hot drink in a moment. The console between the front bucket seats acts as a right arm rest for the driver and consists of an upper and lower compartment for major or minor storage. Just in front of the storage compartments there is a window lock button, the rear window up/ down rocker switch and the ECT button which, in its normal position is set for "normal" driving but when activated allows for much more power for adverse driving conditions. Seats in front are super comfortable buckets with all the back and forth, up and down. motions you could possibly desire and I stress again, they are comfortable. The rear seat is the bench type which is also very comfortable and the rear seat bottoms and backs fold down to give you a rather large cargo area. The rear window tailgate opera-tion is smooth to operate and the gate closes with a resounding thud. The rear window is also equipped with a washer/wiper and an electrical defrost. The lights are stalk controlled on the turn signal lever and the wipers are located on the right side stalk. Instrumentation is easy to read and functional. The tachometer sits beside the speedometer with resettable odometer, and there are real live gauges for fuel, water temp, oil pressure and battery conditio n . C entrally mounted heat and air controls are easy to read and the various degrees of heat or cold are more than adequate.

Prescott Forest Rally IV Photos: Lorne Trezise ,.. :d: .. ~ ,J;-w< Lon Peterson and Jim Love had a close battle and trailed the early leader, but after 221 rally miles they not only won the Open Class they took first overall driving the not-to-new Plymouth Arrow. It has been three years since the California Rally Series has had the privilege of traveling to the mountainous region of central Arizona, to the beautiful town of Prescott, to run the Prescott Forest Rally IV. One of Prescott's original rallyists, Rob Cherry and two of his disciples Roger Hull and Jeff Hendricks teamed together to offer a 221 mile event, featuring 66 stage miles. The· stages used were the best of the best from the previous three events held in '85, '86 and '88. Three stages were used, each run twice, and each one unique in it's own way. Stage one and three was Matthew's Mountain, meas-uring 16.38 miles. The first 8.50 miles was twisty, narrow and fairly rough. After an acute left turn the road changed character dramatically. The road widened Harris Done and Larry Scott fought a see saw battle for the Stock Class honors in the Mazda RX 7, and late in the rally they took over the lead and won the class by nearly a minute.

Stage two and five, Witty Tom, stretched 5 .83 miles over smoother roads, quickly sweeping in and around Government Canyon. This stage was high-lighted by a triple caution narrow bridge crossing. Thankfully all teams had· been warned prior to the event at the driver's meeting and all teams n ~gotiat ed it without incident. "'Stages four and six were named Wildcat, 11.05 miles of wide, fast and sweeping roads. Many teams claimed this their favorite stage. The stage in turn, ho wever, claimed several rally teams. 16 teams entered the co-efficient three event, although only 15 actually started the event. The open class Datsun 510 of Chad Dykes and Pat Hansen encountered electrical woes during the odometer calibration run. Many people tried to help the likeable team but the problem with the car was quite elusive. Big news among the starters was the return to rallying by Mike Whitman, one of the most gifted and feared drivers the CRS has known. Anyone who was con-nected with rallying in the early 80's knows what I mean. For the off road racing crowd reading this; at the same time Jim Sumners was winning Class 2 -1600 everyti_me you turned around Mike was doing the same to the CRS Stock Class. And now he was back, in an open class Datsun 510. All pre and post event happen-ings were at rally headquarters, The Prescottian Hotel. Saturday morning, September 14th, saw teams busy with registration and scrutineering. At 5:30 p.m. the rally started on time with Jeff and Chris Griffin starting the 29 mile transit to stage one. The remaining cars followed at two minute intervals. The open class started eight cars into stage one. First on the road, the sibling team of Jeff and Chris Griffin wasted no time in not only taking the early lead but setting a new fast time for the first stage with a blistering 1 7 minutes and 28 seconds in the TRS/USA November 1991 Tony Tavares and Carlos Tavares picked up time in the Toyota on the smoother stages, took over the lead on stage 5, and the Tavares team won Production GT Class, their third win of the season.

Rock N' Roll 250 (From Page 25) was the first overall car to finish. Coming in second overall, about seven minutes later was the Sprint Chassis Works car, first among the Pro entry. This was Jim Maness' second win this year and makes him the first double winner in Pro for 1991. Second in the Pro cars wasn't decided for more than an hour as both Martin and Autrey struggled to finish. Martin had used up all his spares and had to borrow tires to finish, plus the front end was about to fall off the car. Autrey had broken a transmission strap which made shifting really difficult and had severely bent a rear trailing arm. Neel had managed only nine laps in 7: 19.53 and finally threw iri the towel. At the finish James Martin, with Mike Swinney co-driving, beat Brett Autrey by 12 minutes to take second place in Pro and third overall in a total time of 7:51.90. Brett Autrey was the ironman of the event having stayed in the car for 8:03.04 with no relief and fi nished fourth overall. Lee Neel was awarded fourth in Pro and Cecil Robert-son, fifth. John Mapp was second in Sportsman ranks. The awards were presented on Sunday morning at the host Holiday Inn Parkway and the coffee and donuts were appreci-ated by all. Johnny Oldham thanked everyone for their participation and had news about the next race. It was a night race, and prior to the event was a fun buggy race on a short course for the sand buggy owners who might have the urge to try off road racing. Also it was announced that class reps have been created. Pro Class reps are James Martin (915) 366-1000 and Cecil Robertson (915) 362-3128. Sportsma n reps are Frank Schneider (915) 580-6511 and John Mapp (915) 366-7358. James Martin leads the Pro points by 12 over Cecil Robertson, and Jim Maness is four more behind. Dusty Times

Peter Lahm and Bob Smith were running their first rally in a Darsun 510, of course, and they had a lot of fun, won Seed 6 and were fourth in Open Class.

Don Peterson and Nobel Jones carried plenty of lights to take them to fifth place in the Open Class on the popular Prescott Rally. into the final stages for a trouble free run to capture both the open class and overall victory, "l didn't want to see the rally end that way, if Jeff and Chris hadn't rolled it would have been a great run to the end", said Peterson after the rally. Mike Whitman was happy with a second place finish after not being in a rally car in about four years, he made his return in fine style and should figure into some great battles in the future. Ron Wood and Kelly Walsh regrouped at the halfway point and held onto third place. Newcomers Peter Lahm and Bob Smith reported a lot of fun running their first rally, not only finishing fourth in open class but winning seed six in the process. B. J. and Stuart Beal ran up front in the Production GT Class in the early stages, but their Mazda 323 G TX had late troubles and they dropped to second in class. Paula Gibeault enlisted Ev Hendriks to navigate her Datsun 510, and they had the early lead, later had electrical trouble, lost the lights, but got fixed and took second in Stock Class. The GT Class held three starters. Tony and Carlos Tavares pitted their Toyota Celica All Trac against B.J. and Stuart Beal driving a Mazda 323 GTX. Gary English and Mike Blore teamed again in Gary's Alfa GTV sponsored by Alpha Ricambi. The Beal's ran up front in the early going, over the rougher stages where the Tavares Toyota had to slow on stages one and three. Tavares did challenge in the smoother stages but the lead Beal had built was tough to beat. Stage five saw the Beal 323 on the side of the road; out with unknown ills. Tony and Carlos motored to the finish enjoying their third GT win this year. English and Blore were out on the fourth stage with an overhe:i,ting Alfa spewing steam near a hairpin turn. Some teams claim the Alfa as a marker helped them slow for turn better. The CRS Stock Class had four vehicles show up to challenge the Prescott roads, Paula Gibeault borrowed Jeff Hendricks father, Ev, to navigate in the Gibeault family 510.

SUBARU PRO RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP Bruno Kreibich Dominates The Ojibwe Pro Rally Photos: Rick Corwine Bruno Kreibich has won many rallies before, but this was his first SCCA PRO Rally overall victory in the Audi Quattro with Jeff Becker navigating the team. They had a flawless run, no troubles at all and won by over a minute. ' International rally veteran Bruno Kreibich and co-driver Jeff Becker drove to a convincing overall victory in round four of the. SCCA Subaru Pro Rally Championship Series. Kreibich finished with a one minute, 26 second lead over second place finisher and 1990 Series Champ-ion Paul Choiniere. Both compete in Audi Quattros. Kreibich and Becker were runners up in last year's champ-ionship and had finished consist-ently in the top five during the first three rallies in both the Open lass and Overall. Although Bruno has won many SCCA Divisional and some International events, primarily in Canada, this was his first SCCA National Pro Rally victory. "The car, the crew, the driver and co-driver teamed together for one of those rare rac'e weekends where everything we trieq worked," said Kriebich , who has now moved to within two points of the 1991 Overall series leader Chad DiMarco, who drives the Group A Subaru Legacy. Paul Choiniere and co-driver Scott Weinheimer in their Audi Quattro dominated the series last year, but have not won an event this year. Yet due to their consistent high finishes in the first half of the series they are in third had registered in Noel Lawler's place overall. Chad DiMarco, the Mitsubishi Galant VR4, since no winner of the Tiadaghton and parts were available to fix the STPR Pro Rallies, rounded out drive train on Tim's usual mount, the top three finishers in a VW Rallye supercharged Golf.

DiMarco and co-Co-driver Martin Headland driver Erick Hauge were a minute, hoped to improve on their 1990 37 seconds behind Choiniere. finish, which was very good as The Ojibwe Rally ran initially they won Group A and took third as a TSD performance event, overall.

The cloudless and windless night proved to be a serious problem for all competitors save for Bruno Kreibich and Jeff Becker, who were first on the road in the Audi Quattro. The dust from the cars hung in the air far longer than the one minute interval allowed between stage starts. In the interest of competitor safety, two minute starting intervals were instituted after Special Stage 4 at Bowstring River, and from there the competitors had their first November 1991 Chad Di Marco and Erick Hauge got the reworked Subaru Legacy home first in Group A, and third overall, no doubt retaining their overall points lead in the series with two rallies remaining in 1991. service break at Squaw Lake. At the service stop Chad DiMarco remarked that "Bruno starting first is a Christmas present from the rest of us." Bruce Weinman, Rally Chairman added that ten minute intervals probably wouldn't help. Here attrition had started to take its toll. The Mitsubishi Galant of Tim O'Neil and Martin Headland had a clogged oil filter, resulting in more troubles, which the crew tried to fix during the 35 minute break, but the team were already ten minutes behind. Also falling well back was the Pontiac Fiero of Tim Bendle and Art MacKenzie, reported "off" near the end of stage 3. After four stages they all followed Kreibich/ Becker, who had over two minutes on DiMarco/Hauge. Choiniere was next, followed by Doug Shepherd, then in fifth came Tom Ottey/ Pam McGarvey, their Mazda the first Production GT car. In sixth Merrill/Wickens were followed by the GMC pickup of Guy Light and Jimmy Brandt. Next came Hadjiminas/Theodoropoul fol-lowed in five seconds by the Toyota pickup of Gary and Judi Gooch. About 11 :00 p.m. the rally headed out to the final four stages of the Friday night section. One of the most interesting vehicles at the rally was the U .S. Army Hum-Vee that did duty in the Persian Gulf War. Ambulance Services at this event were provided by a reserve army medical unit, whose participation in the rally counts for one weekend of duty. Many of the reservists here this weekend are recently back from Saudi Arabia. After a day of sleep in Bemidji, the survivors headed out for the Saturday night four stages. They were joined by 13 more competi-tors in the Paul Bunyan's Ride Divisional Rally. On the second stage the Leslie Suddard/Karen Landau Dodge Omni went off the road and into a swamp 2.2 miles into the stage near the Anchor Hill Lookout. Leslie said she just ran out of road, trying to make a late apex. The girls were uninjured and they got the car out after a lot of effort and headed home. Other casualties reported at the Park Rapids service break included the Krolikowski Dodge Shadow reported out . after the first stage with oil problems while Tim Bendle and Art MacKenzie returned to Bemidji following stage 2, under power in the Fiero. The Mazda 323 of Barry Beal and Jim Gill fell off the road after a mile long straight on stage 2 and subsequently was running several minutes behind the field that made it to Park Rapids around 7 p.m. The Kriebich/Becker team, still leading by over two minutes after the first three Saturday stages, replaced all four tires at the break. Chad DiMarco was now in second, with Paul Choiniere just 11 seconds behind him, and both these teams made fuel mixture adjustments at service, because · the dropping barometric pressure and their maximum performance settings left both cars running a little rich. In fourth overall now was Doug Shepherd and Guy Light still led Gary Gooch in the truck action. Tim O'Neil was seen changing spark plugs and adjusting the turbo on the Mitsubishi Galant. At the Walker Service Break Kreibich still held a two minute lead over Paul Choiniere, and Doug Shepherd said he is working harder than his competitors because his Dodge is two wheel drive. Overheating also forced Doug to turn on his heater, and it was a warm night. Meanwhile back on stage 6 the Mitsubishi being 'tested' by Tim O'Neil and Jon Wickens caught fire 2½ miles from the finish in the Paul Bunyan State Forest. Both men were uninjured, while workers, spectators, and following divisional competitors helped put the fire out before it spread into the forest. The car was totaled. As mentioned when the 131.6 stage miles split into 18 stages, and the rally cars had covered 2 7 5 miles, Bruno Kreibich and Jeff Though slim in numbers the competition is tight in Rally Truck Class, and Guy Light and Jimmy Brandt won again in the well prepped GMC S-15 and they finished a fine tenth overall as well.

Tom Ottey and Pam McGarvey had a great run in the Mazda 323, and they moved up steadily to finish fifth overall while winning the Production GT class. Cal Landau and Eric Marcus combined to bring the VW Golf in sixth overall in a close battle for fifth place honors, and they also won first place in Production Class. Close all the way Californians Gary and Judi Gooch drove the Toyota into second in Rally Truck Class and they came in 15th overall in the rally. Chris Czyzio and Dale Jones run their Plymouth from home base in Michigan, and they competed in both events, finishing fifth in Open Class in the National and fourth overall in Paul Bunyan's Ride. Becker won over Paul Choiniere and Scott Weinheimer in an Audi Quattro shoot out. Chad DiMarco and Erick Hauge nailed third overall and the Group A title for. Subaru, while Doug Shepherd was fourth overall, third in Open Class in the Dodge. Tom Ottey and Pam McGarvey won Produc-tion GT at fifth overall. Cal Landau and Eric Marcus were less than a minute behind them to snag the Production class honors in a VW, followed in 49 seconds by W.G. Giles and Bob Pierce, their VW still leading the class on points. Second and third in GT class and eighth and ninth overall went to the Mazda of Michael Grieb and Robert Martin and the Toyota of Dick Corley and Lance Smith. In tenth overall Guy Light and Jimmy Brandt won the Truck Class in a GMC about 4½ minutes ahead of rivals Gary and Judi Gooch, Toyota. In all, 21 of the 30 starters finished the rally, and PAUL BUNYAN SCCA DMSIONAL PRO RALLY Paul Bunyan Competitors Not Babes In The Wood · the last one in was the Mazda of Barry Beal and James Bill that had early troubles but kept moving down the trail to the checkered fla . ~' Giles and Bob Pierce compete in Production Class where they took a close second in the Objiwe, and they also ran the Divisional Rally which they won outright in the VW Golf. Perhaps the SO foot high statue of Paul Bunyan and the 30 foot long likeness of his blue ox Babe were omens that the Divisional Pro Rally on the Saturday of the Ojibwe event at Bemidji, Min-nesota could pass for a tall tale. Dubbed the 'Paul Bunyan's Ride', the event got off to a bizarre beginning even before the first car left the starting line when international rally star Tim O'Neil decided to run the divisional class in order to get more seat time in his new Mitsubishi. Well, it really wasn't his Mitsubishi, but for this event Tim had been asked to drive the Galant VR-4 which had cata-pulted Noel Lawler into first place in Production GT class. Why wasn't Noel driving the car, seeing that he had a chance to grab the lead for national points? All we can say is that Noel seemed to be unavailable for this rally, and seems to be unavailable for the rest of the season. --------------_-_-_-_-_-_::_-_::_-_::_-_-_::_::_-_-_::_::_-_-_-_-_-_::_-_-_-_-_-~ So Tim entered the Mitsubishi l ~""' MFNr or owN~~.=~ .. ;.;;;.,::~·~.~~~;~~.EN r 11No cmcuLATION in the National Rally on F~iday ,,,.--;:;;:-;,-.-.. -.. -.·----· -----·-·v-.. -, -,.,-,.,-,,.-.. -M-.-"-~,-... -.. -.,-,.,-.... ---<night, but a clogged oil filter I/ ......

Also entered in the divisional event were the national Produc-tion class leaders W.G. Giles and Bob Pierce in a VW GTI, Tiadaghton winners Henry and Cindy Krolikowski in a Dodge Shadow, top Toyota Celica runners Vinnie Frontinan and Frank Arruda. Also on hand were veteran GTI rallyists Frank Cunningham and Charles Bradley, and the all woman Dodge Omni team of Leslie Suddard and Karen Landau .. The O'Neil and Wickens combo smoked the competition for the first five stages, but all was not well. The car was running very hot, which led Wickens to believe that, based on the experience the day before with Carl Merrill, that he was to blame. Finally on stage 6 O'Neil decided that he might damage the engine if he kept running, so he pulled off the road November 1991 about a mile from the end of the stage. He and Jon got out of the car, and the next thing they knew, the front end was on fire. Tim's theory was a coolant hose had broken spitting glycol onto a very hot turbocharger. The water evaporated and the glycol ignited. No less than six of the divisional competitors stopped to donate their fire bottles to the effort, along with workers from both the end of the stage and the nearby spectator viewing area. A call was put out to bring anything wet to cool the smoldering wreck and this effort probably saved any forest damage. Workers poured water from their coolers onto the car and then waded into a nearby swamp to get more water. The car is a total write off, a crispy critter from the firewall forward. But with Noel Lawler personna-non-grata, however, no one's really sure whose car it was. Also bowing out of the rally in a similar 'Paul and the Babe' big way was the Suddard/Landau team, who ended the run on the very first stage when driver Leslie smacked a tree totaling the car's front end, but preventing the women from sinking into a nearby swamp. The Krolikowskis were com-petitive early, but mechanical problems forced them out of the running. This left a battle between Photos: Ric_k Corwine ·cunningham/Bradley, Giles/ Pierce and Frontinan/ Arruda. The Irish GTI team of Frank Cunningham and Charles Bradley, another DNF from the national event the night before, was minutes ahead with only minutes to go when Frank ran off the road into a gully and could not finish. So much for luck and nationality. That maneuver dropped Giles and Pierce into the lead, a fact that the GTI team was unaware of until after the event as they were busy competing for national position as well. The Vinnie Frontinan/Frank Arruda Celica was second by a little more than two minutes, with a Dodge Charger driven by Mark Larson and Gary Starr finishing third. -Of the 20 that started in divisional ranks, 12 finished. Chris Czyzio and Dale Jones were fourth in a Plymouth followed by Chuck and Tom VanDamme in a VW. This rally was the final qualifying event for the Central Division for Divisional season winners, who will come from all around the country and meet at the Gold Rush Rally in Westcliffe, Colorado in October for the 1991 Divisional Pro Rally Driver's Cup.
