Soap Box ••• By John Host contingency row, we do know that some can and some can't. If you were at Parker you might have noticed the local vendors who set up their stands selling shirts and just about everything else in the empty dirt lot just behind the first block of contingency row, so apparently if you live in Parker you can't sell things on the SCORE blocked off streets; but in Ensenada last November the local folks moved in with shirts, pins, all manner of items bearing the words Baja woo, and sold them all day. We 'know because our little stand was surrounded by them. It does seem that if there is an official ban, it ought to apply to everyone on contingency row, regardless of how much, if any, money they have pledged for the contingency fund. That's a personal opinion, and we would like to hear yours. (ed.) After six months of work I was almost ready to see a dream come true. A small dream, granted, but my dream. My line of off road T -Shirts, christened Desert T'z, was ready for the public. Ads were run in Dusty Times and I anxiously waited for more exposure at the Parker 400 race late in January. Contingency was pledged by my company for all SCORE/HORA races·. Everything was coming together beautifully! Then, "The Letter" came. A quick note from Sue Smuskiewicz at HORA saying that my conting-ency pledge had been accepted, BUT. But what? HORA felt that my T-Shirts would "conflict with souvenir sales at their events". I was banned from contingency row! What a nightmare, and never in my wildest dreams did I expect this! Now, wait a minute. Sue's letter also said HORA would "allow only their official event logoed apparel to be on sale at the races". Interesting. What about Trick Racing Fuel, Sports Gas, K.C. HiLites, Jim Conner Racing, Rancho Suspension, the Mears Gang, and BFGoodrich? And the rest of the companies on contingency row with T -Shirts? Those hats and shirts are not "official event logoed apparel." Jeez - I feel like Charlie Brown! And, what about SCORE and Parker? What was their decision on this issue? I faxed them that very question and received a response on January 23rd, just two days before the Parker contingency day! SCORE was basically following HDRA's lead. They said I could set up on contingency row, but I couldn't sell T-shirts! Now that doesn't make sense! It was time to unpack the truck and break out the guns. I am now asking all SCORE/ HORA members and contingency sponsors for help. You are my guns. Send Danny and Sal a note in support of Desert T'z. A little competition shouldn't be defined as "a conflict". I have form letters at my office for those who haven't time to write a letter. Call me at (714) 582-0930 and I'll send you one. Let me say in closing that I love . the sport of off road racing. I started this business because of this love. I feel that my designs are helping support and promote the sport, and I hope my fellow off roaders will support me. I hope to see you at the Mint, whoops, it is now the Nissan 400. While this publication has no official opinion on the problem of some folks being allowed to sell shirts, hats, jackets, racing apparel, pins, jacket patches, etc. on Volunteers are invited to climb on their "Soap Box" and fill this space with their thoughts about what is good and what is not so good about the state of the sport.

THE A WARDS BANQUET SEASON was finally over in mid-Jan~ary in the west, and we also have word of a gala pre-Christmas party to reward the Bonneville Off Road Racers, and they had a good crowd and a fun time. The serious awards for points winners went to 5-1600 drivers Rod Sorenson and · Jim Magill who won the overall points crown. In second spot was Barry Merriam, Class l 0, followed by 1-1600 driver Gary Brennan in third spot. The Sportsman points champion was Bob Flinn and Sue Sorenson won the Powder Puff honors. The Hard Luck Race Team trophy went to Jeff Robinson and Jed Worley. The Most Improved Driver was Barry Merriam and Robert Idle was named Course Worker of 1990. The Dell Heninger Sportsman of the Year was · voted on by the racers and went to Elbert and Scott Emley, and El bet also won the Grand Prize, a set of Yokohama Tires from Yokohama Motor Sports. Also compliments of Yokohama Motor Sports, jackets were awarded to the champs and volunteer staff and BORE thanks Scott and Chris at Yokohama for their backing. In the Humorous awards category, George Cain was the best dressed racer, Gary Brennan, the empty gas tank, and Mike Baker, tire conservationist. Sponsors awards went to Steve Hoellein of Felt Auto of Ogden, Utah, with many thanks to many others. BORE President Jim Baker has a new phone number in Ogden, as he has sold his business and is retiring. Check the Happenings column for the phone number and the 1991 BORE race schedule. THE SCORE PARKER 400 will be covered in complete detail next month as only Judy Smith can do it, digging out war stories to enhance the results. Meanwhile, in case you missed the ESPN Speedweek coverage a while after the race, the winners are now official after a long Competition Review Board session at Parker. Jim Smith won overall in Class 1/ 2, with Dennis Rogers riding along, and it was some time before the next finishers arrived. Willie Melancon drove his single seat Mirage to the Class 1-2-1600 victory and 11th overall. Former champion biker Dan Smith joined the Ford/Goodrich Rough Riders team this season and he drove the 1989 and 1990 Class 3 dominating Bronco to the victory. Steve Kelley had a slow start but his new Chevy held together to win Class 4. After seeing Hartinut and Wolfram Klawitter on Friday, it was no surprise to see them win Class 5, and Tom Neth won the battle in Class 5-1600. Another member of the Rough Rider team,John Swift drove a new Ford Explorer to victory in Class 6, an_d Manny Esquerra,-another Rough Rider this year in the Ranger, won Class 7 in his home town. Spencer Low got his Nissan into the victory in Class 7S while Jerry McDonald put the Chevy S-10 home first in Class 7 4x4. In Class 8 Scott McMillin smoked them all in his privateer Ford and also finished third overall .. Class 9 honors went to Roy and Wade Prince in a Chenowth, and Ray Croll and Mike Julson won Class 10 in their Jimco. Travis Howard was victorious in Class 11 and Frank and Steve Bristing won the Chenowth Mini Mag honors. Larry Roessler scored fast time among the motorcycle classes. While the entry was down, the competition was fierce, so watch for the complete story in the April issue of Dusty Times. STEVE KASSANYI, who has been SCORE's Race Director and Chief Official since 1985, announced his resignation from SCORE International early last January. Steve has established his own Motorsports Public Relations firm, called Kassanyi Motorsports, which will be based in Cathedral City, CA. Jim Conner, of Lake Havasu City, AZ, assumed some of the Race Director duties for the recent Parker 400 at Parker, AZ and the race ran smoothly this year with the other honchos doing double duty also. Kassanyi will be assisting IDRA Managing Director George Thompson in seveal areas of the organization. Thompson stated "Steve has over 15 years of esperience in Management and Promotion in Off Road Racing and will be a valuable asset to the Public Relations field and a welcome addition to our staff at IDRA." Steve will assist EDRA as a contributing editor to the IDRA Newsletter and will participate as a member of the Safety Committee. NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK: Just when we thought the field of off road racing publications was reaching a reasonable size for the market, with the demise last year of Off Road America, we now find two local southwestern magazine sized monthlies have blossomed out of the kitchen table. In Southern California the La Rana Express has two issues in circulation, and apparently the American Desert Racing Association has declared a local Phoenix monthly called Motorsports Press its Official News Voice. With a definite shrinking availability of advertising dollars, it does seem an odd time in which to launch a new racing publication, but they may know something we don't know. CLASS 1 / 2 TRUCKS: While factories are scrambling to get their feet wet in Class 1/ 2 racing with a truck bodied race car, a couple of privateers are also going to chase Ivan Stewart's Toyota in the few desert events he will compete in this year. It seems odd that Bill Church's latest Chevy bodied creation sporting a 350 V-8 engine was the only Class 1/2 style truck that finished at Parker; but then the Church family has a reputation for building strong race cars and being prepared to race before they come to the track. Sometimes the factory rigs are brought out for PR purposes, before the testing cycle is complete·. Danny 'Letner also is using a Chevy S-10 body on his new Class 2 rig designed by Tom Hoke. Mike Smith did all the fabrication, .ind this machine is powered by a fuel injected 2.6 liter Chevy V-6 and is equipped with an automatic transmission. Lerner started out strong at Parker, but did not cover a lap, nor did the factory Jeep driven by Jack Johnson, or Walker Evans in his Class8 Dodge. The factory Nissan did not show up at Parker. So, the truck invasion in Class l / 2 appears to be down the road a ways, but remember it took Ivan Stewart and the PPI crew a couple of years to get the Toyota dialed in to perform ·as it did in 1990. By the way, we were chastised late last year for calling Stewart's race car a funny truck. We meant it was as high dollar, if not more so than the funny cars in drag racing, the stars of most quarter mile shows. So the 1/2 vehicles will be referred to primar.ily as race cars in the future. INTER-SHOWS MOTORSPORT PROMOTIONS has a full schedule this month of shows and swap meets, handy if you happen to live in Orange County, CA. On Friday March 8 and Saturday March 9, the Orange County Fairgrounds hosts a pair of specialty swap meets. Friday night is the Budweiser Motorcycle swap meet with over 200 vendors with new and used bike parts and -accessories and "ready to restore" motorcycles. It will fill a 40,000 square foot building at the fairgrounds. Harley Davidson enthusiasts will find an extensive assortment of pins, memorabilia and street leathers. On Saturday night Building 10 houses the Budweiser Volkswagen, Porsche and Off Road Swap Meet. This swap meet is known for its considerable selection of hard to find parts, and both new and used parts and accessories will be on sale. Some fully restored vehicles ready to drive away will also be offered. The admission price per night is a mere $5.00 and parking is free at the fairgrounds, and that is a bargain in the entertainment market today. i;.-Dusty Times

Side Tracks ••• By Judy Smith All of us have become more aware of the need to recycle household items like newspapers, plastic bottles and aluminum cans in order to help preserve not only the space needed for landfill dumps, but the energy needed to make new paper, plastics and aluminum. And if we give the matter some serious thought, it becomes apparent that we need to consider what we're doing to our future when we simply trash worn out tires, dead batteries and used oil from the family vehicle or the race car. Batteries and oil come under the heading of "hazardous waste'', and must be disposed of properly, in ways that won't pollute our gound water, or create more toxic fumes in our atmosphere. Car batteries contain sulfuric acid and lead, both nasty to the human system, and are actually fairly easy to dispose of properly, though you wouldn't think so from the number of old batteries you see stored in people's garages. In southern California all you have to do is to take them to a K-Mart, where you'_ll receive $2 for each battery you recycle. K-Mart then passes them along to a professional recycler, where their components are separated, the lead is melted down and reincarnated, usually as another battery. _ Americans throw away enough used motor oil every year to fill 120 super tankers. Oil is also nasty stuff, and, although it kills weeds, don't be tempted to use it as an herbicide, because it'll slowly filter down through your soil into the local ground water. The practice of tossing it out into the nearby dirt alley to ''control dust", should be stopped also, for the same reason. Oil recyclers say that motor oil never wears out, it can be re-refined over and over, and, cleaned of all the gooey dirt and bits of metal, it will be just as good as new. It's fairly easy to rid your premises of the stuff, but you'll need to give it a little thought. First of all, find some kind of leak proof container with a screw on lid for storing your used oil, and then, when it's full, or maybe, when several of them are full, simply take it to your handy dandy oil recycler, which in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties, is Chief Auto Parts. Not just any Chief Auto Parts however, but it's simple to find out which one offers the service in your neighborhood. Just call 800-553-2962. That's the magic number for getting the _address and/ or phone number of a wide variety of recyclers, throughout the state of California. Chief, by the way, will take up to five gallons of used oil, for free. Americans throw out more than 250 million tires every year. And those tires, which can be recycled into a component for asphalt paving, or carpet padding, pipe insulation or wire, or can be retreaded, are also simple to dispose of. The list of places that take old tires is long, but a few of them are; in Orange County, Pete's Road Service, Inc., at 714-991-4592; in Barstow, SELF Enterprises, at 619-256-6334; and in Canoga Park, at 21339 Saticoy, Apollo Tire Co., at 818-348-6142. Or you can call that 800 number I mentioned earlier, and they'll help find someone close to your garage. If you have a vehicle with a radiator, you may on occasion have a need to drain it, or you may have a container with some anti-freeze left over. While it's hazardous to the envi:nronment, it's also likely to be dangerous in a particularly sneaky way. Pets are attracted to its sweet taste, and may drink from .puddles of the stuff, and if they do, they will die. The recycling information folks said that anti-freeze should be taken to radiator shops for recycling. If you can't locate a shop in your area to take it, you can call the Los Angeles Coum i Hazardous Material Hot Line, at 213-699-7411, extension 1622, and they'll help you find a way to dispose of it safely.

What about that tank full of parts_ cleaner, or carburetor cleaner? Don't, whatever you do, don't throw it into the weeds between your house and the garage, and don't toss it down the storm drain on the corner. Call the information number, and find the proper place and way to get rid of the ugly stuff. There are a few other phone numbers, if the ones listed above haven't solved your problems. In California you can call the Department of Conservation, Division of Recycling, in Sacra-mento, at 916-323-3743, or, for your nearest recycling center, try, 800-332-SA VE. In Nevada it's the office of Community Service, Energy Extension Services, in Carson City, at 702-687-4908. In Arizona you should talk to the Department of Environmental Quality, Waste Planning Section, in Phoenix, at 602-257-2372. There's a national phone number also, at the EPA Office of Solid Waste, 401 M St. S.W., Wash-ington, D.C. 20460; 202-475-9860. They · have a hotline for ordering brochures also, at 800-424-9346. If you'd like to have more information on the reasons for recycling, and the way to go about it, there's a very handy little book ( source for most of the phone numbers· listed above) called "Recycler's Handbook", put together by the Earth Works Group, and available at Walden Books for 4.95.

THE PIKES PEAK AUTO HILL CLIMB organization has just announced that Chevrolet has doubled the purse for the 1991 event on July 4 out of Colorado Springs, CO. They will provide $10,000.00 per division winner utilizing Chevrolet power in the upcoming event. Chevy also announced they will continue to provide one dollar for every one foot of altitude to the summit of Pikes Peat (14,110 feet) for a new overall course record set by a Chevrolet powered race car. The previous record is held by Ari Vatanen driving a Peugeot 405 in a timeof 10:48:34 in the 1988 event. 1991 will mark Chevrolet's fourth year of involvement in the event and its third year as a major title sponsor. ROBBY GORDON, who started in his father's Class 1/2 Chenowth at the Parker 400 did a lot better a week later at Daytona. Gordon had trouble on the first lap but did a hot second round, then vanished without finishing at·Parker. In 1990 The 24 ~ours of Daytona marked the first pavement success for the rising young star, and he and his teammates, Mark Martin ofNASCAR fame and Wally DallenbachJr. with an assist from Dorsey Schroeder won the GTO Division at the 1991 24 Hours of Daytona and finished fourth overall behind a pair of Porsche 962s and a Group C Nissan. Quite a feat for a Ford Mustang, and they also gave car owner Jack Roush his seventh consecutive GTO victory in this event, and our man Gordon his second. Congratulations Robby. PRISM DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT in northern California is profecting their designs will take some of the mystery and the high cost out of building an unlimited race truck for either desert racing or stadium bashing._ Owner Ken Sypolt is offering an unlimited rolling chassis for under $5,000.00 and all you need to supply is your choice of engine and tranny. Other than that the only variables are seat, steering and-petal position, since each truck is built in the same jig. This just may be an idea whose time has come as desert Class 1/2 open wheel racers now need big power like Porsche and big transmissions to harness the power, often the hign dollar Hewland trans, so an unlimited truck would cost about the same. For all the details on the rolling chassis, don't call us but call (916) 344-7443, and check for more information in the Prism ad in this issue. HDRA NISSAN 400 UPDATE - Preparations are moving swiftly for the race coming soon the first of March. On contingency row, downtown Las Vegas on Fremont Street, the activity will run from 7 a.m._ until 5 p.m. on March 1, and it should be quite a busy day in the 200 spaces occupied by manufacturers and other event related displays. Pre-race activities will center around the Union Plaza Hotel at number 1 Main Street, the end of contingency row. Along with acting as pre-race headquarters the Union Plaza Hotel will host two event media conferences during race week at the famous Center Stage Restaurant. Additionally the Hotel will host driver registration, the contingency sponsor meeting/ reception, and also host the pre-race Media Center. The Golden Nugget Hotel will be the site of the exclusive HORA Nissan 400 VIP reception the evening before the race, and the Gold Coast Hotel will host the post race "Survivor's Brunch" and the awards presentation on Sunday, March 3. The Las Vegas International Speedway, two miles north of the main gate entrance to Nellis Air Force Base on Las Vegas Boulevard _ North, will again be the start and finish line area and the race will start at 8 a.m. March 2. Held just nine days after the SCORE Parker 400, the drawing for starting numbers produced a healthy 166 cars, and a lot of folks have yet to unpack from Parker. Look us up on contingency row and we hope Dusty Times can get a small spot near the front of the line, so we don't have too far to walk to all the functions. gr, Dusty Times

This is MSD's second year as a contingency sponsor for HORA/SCORE and they have stepped up their involvement in the series by increasing their postings to $1,800.00 per event. At each of the eight desert races MSD has posted $200.00 to be paid each eligible winner in Class 1/2, Class 3, Class 4, Class 5, Class 7, Class 7S, Class 7 4x4, Class 8 and Class 10. To be eligible for MSD's contingency award, the winner must be using an MSD 5, 6 or 7 Series Ignition Control and must display MSD Contingency decals on both sides of the vehicle for the entire event. For more information on MSD's off road contingency program, contact MSD at 1490 Henry Brennan Dr., El Paso, Texas 79936 or call (915) 857-5200. THE NISSAN 400 is the spring biggie for desert racers and spectators, who crowd Las Vegas for the race and jam Fremont street during the contingency row activity on Friday, March 1 this year. Along with the regulars setting up shop on Fremont Street will be a number of others rarely seen elsewhere. One stand in particular we would like anyone going there to search out will probably be next to Mastercraft. Rich Minga and friends will be there and would like to tell you about the Trust Fund for Peri Combe, whose husband Buzz died suddenly in an accident at the Parker 400. Peri and the two little girls might be there also, and Minga will be happy to collect any on the spot donations to the fund. If you don't plan on going to Vegas, ym.1 can mail your contribution to the San Diego County Credit Union, Attn: Charlene Bavencoff, 165 East Park Ave., El Cajon, CA 92020, or call her at (619) 453-2112 for more information. THE IDRA introduced their Driver Orientation Program at the recent SCORE Parker 400. The new Driver Orientation Program, a joint venture organized by the IDRA with cooperation from SCORE/HORA, was introduced to a gathering of over 80 racers after the Driver's meeting on Friday night. The program, which grew out ofIDRA Safety meetings held during the past two years, is designed to acquaint new racers to the SCORE/HORA series with some of the basic safety procedures out on the race course. According to IDRA Managing Director George Thompson: "We've been working on this program for some time now and being the first race of the year Parker seemed like the ideal place to introduce it. For now, we are asking all drivers who have competed in less than three SCORE/HORA races during the past year to attend the meeting. I had no idea how many people would show up at Parker. I am glad we had a P.A. system. The program is run by a group of veteran racers who each cover various subjects and encourage questions from the drivers." The D.O.P. committee consists of the following men: Dave Ashley, Wayne Cook, Rod Hall, Reese King, Rich Richardson, George Thompson and Frank Vessels. (By our count only five of the above are active drivers-ed. )"After a few meetings," said Thompson, "we should have a professional presentation worked out and then we can start to get other veteran racers involved, as we do in the CRB. For a first time out, this was a tremendous success and the racers seemed to enjoy the opportunity to talk about course safety." It would be interesting to know what subjects were discussed at Parker, and if the motorcycle riders were included in the program. THE CORRECTED SODA RACE SCHEDULE is printed in the 'Happenings' column and be sure to correct your pull out calendar from the January issue. It starts early this year with the Great Northern Challenge at the Ionia, Michigan Fairgrounds, on May 11 and 12. If you plan on attending be sure and pack your rain gear, as it can get wet out that early in the spring in southern Michigan. This event will be covered by ESPN as a full feature, so you can also see it all on TV. So watch your local channel listings for the day and time, usually a couple of weeks after the event happens. Other than taking most of August off, SODA has a race almost every two weeks through September 15 · in Michigan and Wisconsin, and a few more of them will also have the glory of ESPN TV feature coverage. THE CORONA 200 is being held on the same May 10-12 weekend, far from the midwest in La Paz, Baja California de! Sur, Mexico. Regular readers know that La Paz is the finish line for the every three year Baja 1000 run from Ensenada to La Paz. The off road folks in La Paz have been putting on short events for some time now, and they are going for a full scale professional 400km desert race with a $10,000.00 U.S. dollars guaranteed purse in Classes Challenger and 1-2-1600, and the rest of the clases have a 100 percent payback of the entry fee, with a total purse of $20,000.00. A number of pre-race and post race activities are planned and most involve parties complete with food and beer, on the house. The entry fee is $500.00 plus insurance. The sign up and tech inspection will be done "on the Malecon Beach Front" in town, May 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the race starts on May 11 at 8 a.m. The start/finish line is at the local race track. The awards ceremony and Mexican party will be at the Palmira Hotel May 12 at 2 p.m. It sure sounds like a fun time in the tropical climate way down south, and worth the long tow to La Paz. For hotel reservations and more information contact these San Diego phone numbers, (619) 691-9171, Race Ready Products, Bob Hummel, or (619) 425-1639, Don Hatz Racing Engines. CALIFORNIA OFF ROAD JAMBOREE -Inter-Shows Motorsports Promotions premiers a brand new, custom vehicle show at Anaheim Stadium Exhibition Center and Concourse on Sunday; March 17. Following in the tradition of the popular California Volkswagen and Truck Jamboree events, the Budweiser California Off Road Jamboree will feature exotic custom off road cars, trucks, motorcycles, off road racers of all descriptions, a manufacturers' new off road vehicles and products expo. Additionally there will be vendor booths selling unique accessories, parts and off road novelty items. The Seminar Series will offer off road driving and racing instruction from professional racers like Ivan "lronman" Stewart and other pros. These drivers will also demonstrate driving techniques on a special parking lot test course. A 4x4 project truck will be customized throughout the day as spectators watch and learn how to install trick add-ons, and the end result, a customized Isuzu will be given away in a sweepstak~s drawing. A wide range of off road interests will be included in the vendor booths, including camping equipment, all terrain vehicles, recreational vehicles and other outdoor sporting goods.

This was what happened to Buzz Combe at the recent SCORE Parker 400. We first met Buzz when he was helping Nelson Salerno launch HPS Oil in contingency row many years back, and then he developed an abiding interest in off road racing. That interest led him to a good position with Bilstein Corp. of America, where he honed his skills at shock engineering, helping develop the product for both racing and fun time off roading. We were told that Buzz Was scheduled to move ahead into the exciting world of NASCAR shock absorber engineering in the near future. It was off road racing and a common participation in contingency row activities that brought Peri Miller and Buzz Combe together, Buzz working for Bilstein and Peri for her family owned company Mastercraft. The pair were married a few years ago, and seemed to enjoy the hectic life of business and off road racing that doesn't provide many days off at home. For many years he was the rider in the Class 2 car driven by Mike Lund in desert racing. So it was only natural that when Sherman Balch asked Mike Lund to drive his Class 3 Nissan Pathfinder at the Parker race, that Buzz started in the passenger seat. Unfortun-ately the team didn't get far, not quite to Swansea, before disaster struck in the form of a giant hole Page 10 hidden in the dust, and a huge rock that jolted the truck so hard the frame was moved back six inches. The brunt of the entire accident hit the passenger side of the vehicle, and apparently Buzz was killed instantly, which is the way to go if your number is up. Details,are sketchy as Lund was in shock, and probably still is, but the next race cars along summoned help immediately via radio and helped contact the medics at the nearest checkpoint. Buzz Combe was an effervescent kind of guy, always looked about 21 years old, and actually was in his mid-thirties, and he always helped anybody he could. Our heartfelt sympathy goes to his wife Peri and their two little girls, Tyler, 3, and Devon, just nine months old. They were all at the Parker race at the time of the accident, and it must have been a sad trip back to their home near San Diego. A Trust Fund for Peri Combe was established almost immed-iately, to help with the big task of educating the girls and paying for the new home the Combes bought recently. Many in the industry contributed to the fund before the memorial services were held, and if any one reading this sorrowful tale would like to contribute, make the check payable to Trust Fund for Peri Combe.

FRT DUNAWAY DASH McMillin Ends Season With Overall Win· By Judy Smith Photos: C&C Race Photos Mark McMillin had a totally trouble free race in his Porsche powered Chenowth, and not only won the Unlimited Class, the only one that_ finished, he also won the race overall by a good margin. Mark McMillin capped a long holiday weekend campout in the Plaster City Off Highway Vehicle Area with the overall victory in the FRT's New Year's Eve Dunaway Dash. McMillin, more accustomed to running the long Baja type events, put his Porsche powered Chenowth out in front early in the afternoon, and sprinted to the finish in three hours 17 minutes and 28 seconds. Based on the eastern edge of the OHV area, the course was 26.4 miles long, and there were six laps. The terrain was described as · very rough by the racers, and also very dusty, though a breeze in the later laps helped to clear things up. Otis Fudpucker, the head of the FRT, provided two races for the,.• entertainment of the off roaders celebrating New Year's in the desert. The first, which started at seven a.m., was for motorcycles and A TVs, and was over by about 11 a.m. The cars and trucks were the second event of the double header, and they got to run· on a slightly more chewed up course, and for some it meant a lap or two of night time racing. Between the end of the first event and the start of the second, Fud had his drivers' meeting, to explain the rules of the game. He described the course briefly, announced that all checks were rolling checks, stated that it was cause for disqualification to drive to the outside of the pink course boundary markers, and suggested that no one drive over the big orange markers used to pinpoint the location of especially bad holes and ditches. Immediately after the drivers' meeting the racers self staged their cars with the aid of a long line of staked paper plates, each with a car · number on it. The start went off right on time, at 12 noon, and cars left the line every 15 seconds. In the Unlimited class McMillin jumped to the front right away, and Ron Wilkinson, in his Type IV powered single seat Chaparral ran second, followed by Ryan Thomas, in his two seat 2300cc VW powered Chenowth. McMil-lin, whose first lap was the quick one for the class, at 31.33, continued to press very hard, and, with the others following in the same order, had built his lead to 18 minutes by the end of the third lap. Wilkinson broke permanently on the fourth lap, and as McMillin continued his untroubled day, Thomas' co-driver, Dick Con-stantine, now moved into second place, while Cecil and Jeff Wright, who have put a Buick V 6 motor in their single seat "Wright-Jumper", instead of their old Mazda, ran third, although a long way down with fuel problems. There was one other entry in the class that had excited the interest .. Roaring over the sandy desert Ben Abatti drove his Class 8 Ford alone, and it brought him luck as he had no down time and won Class 8 by a full lap, and was the only class finisher. ~ Chris Minor pushed his Chevrolet hard in Class 8 action, and ran close to the leader until the last miles, but he still took second place. of the other competitors, and that was the new Mazda powered MECO single seater of Mike and Morley Williams. Unfortunately, Mike endoed it just off the start line, and, while he recuperated from a bump on the head, his dad, Morley, took over the driving, but didn't get all the way around, the VW bus transmission giving up· the ghost before the lap was completed. At the end of the fourth lap McMillin made his only stop, to take on eight·gallons of fuel, just in case. He continued to run at a steady pace, and his lead continued to build. At the end of lap five he had an hour on Constantine and Thomas, and Thomas got back in for the sixth lap. The Wrights were still third, another hour down. McMillin took his win, declaring that it was a . "beautiful, fun race course", and, for him, '.'not very dusty." TI10mas and Constantine finished second, followed in by the Wrights, happy to get a finish with their new motor in spite of the flooding and stalling problems they'd had. In Class 8, Scott McMillin was the first truck off the line, in his Ford, and then broke an axle before getting very far into the first lap. So, while the McMillin pits thrashed, the lead fell to Chris Minor, in his Chevy, who had the class fast lap at 33.23. In second it Bill Hammack and Tim Sines had a good day and a '°l:lose race in their Jimco-Rabbit, kicked up some dust along the trail, outlasted the early leaders and . won Class 10 by less than two minutes. Glen Elliott and John Knudsen started out second, led Class 10 for three laps, but the hot pace did them in and they failed to finish lap 5. Mike Davis and Victor Calderon sta_rted out second in Class 1-2-1600 in the brand new Jimco, were on the winner's bumper and took second by 37 seconds. Tom Schilling and Bill Reams ran in the front five all day, finished fourth in Class 1-2-1600, a half second out of third place in the Jimco. Page 11 March 1991 Dusty Times

Smitty and Norm Schmidt came out of a short retirement to stay close to the Class 5 leaders, but had ignition trouble on the last lap but still finished second. Usually the 1990 Class 5 champion Whitted family of Brawley are tough to beat, but this time sons Kyle and Joel broke for good on the first lap. Larry Plank raced in a Mini Mag for the first time, ran third early in the fray and moved up on the leader and took second only ten minutes back. was Ben Abatti, in a Ford, out for just his second race as a truck driver. Karl Counce, in a. Chevy, ran third. Minor lost about 20 minutes in the pits at the end of the first lap, and Abatti took over the lead, with Minor now second, and Counce still in third place. Minor pushed hard on the third lap too, but some mechanical gremlin· kept delaying him, and Abatti had a seven minute lead on Counce at the end of lap three, with Minor another 11 minutes back. Abatti's day continued to go smoothly, and he continued to lead, having no mechanical troubles at all. Minor moved back up to second place, with Craig Corda, who'd been high centered earlier in the day, moving his Ford into third place, as Counce lost 50 minutes somehow, and then broke for good on the fifth lap. At the end of that fifth lap it was still Abatti in the lead, with Minor now 11 minutes back, and Corda still holding on to third place. Abatti sailed through his sixth lap with no problems, to take the win, but behind him there was nothing but trouble. Corda broke a header, and became a dnf, while Minor struggled valiantly on, getting to within a mile or so of the finish line, but unable to make it power itself that necessary last mile to the checkered flag. So Abatti was the only one with six laps done, Minor's five laps gave him second place, while Corda, also with five laps, was third. In Class 10 the first lap leader was another new· car in its first outing; the Toyota powered two seat Jimco of John Marking. And John ran a remarkable lap, covering the ground exactly two seconds faster than McMillin had, at 31 :31, to record the fast lap of the day. In second, behind him it was Glen Elliott and John Knudsen, in their one seat VW MECO, and then Brian McDon-nell ran third in his VW Raceco single seater. Reuben Wood, who drives a Ford Escort powered Beard one seater, was fourth. On the second lap Marking's transmission gave up and he was out of the race. as Elliott and Knudsen moved into the lead. McDonnell was now second, and Wood moved up to third, struggling a bit with a leaky oil cooler that blew oil all over the spark plugs and caused the motor to miss. Tim Sines, in a Rabbit powered. one seat J imco ran fourth. And McDonnell's brother, Tim, who often leads this class, was trying to make up for time lost with a broken tie rod end on his Raceco single seater. At the end of lap three it was still Elliott and Knudsen, and they now had a lead of 10 minutes on McDonnell. Sines moved into third, while Jim and Karl Sherman, in a Toyota powered ff·~ f ·"""'tf!l· "' Coy Brigman ran alone in his ORBS in Class 1-2-1600, started out in fifth, and moved steadily through the ranks to take the lead on the fourth lap, and went on to victory in the big class, and was second overall.

In Class 1-2-1600, a fierce· battle was shaping up, and the lead was in the hands of Todd Teuscher, in a Chenowth two seater, who had only 49 seconds on second place Mike Davis, in a brand new J imco one seater, at the end of lap one. In third it was Jim and Michael Abatti, two seat Raceco, just eight seconds later, and followed by David Marini, in a two seat. Chenowth, 58 seconds behind them.

He finished second, only 37 seconds behind the winner. In third it was Teuscher, who was only fractions of a second ahead of Reams and Schilling, and then Marini was fifth, about 16 seconds behind them.

Davis dropped to fourth, 42 seconds back, and Schilling ran fifth 19 seconds later. The competition was very intense, but they were having a blast. All but one of the cars that started in this class were still running, and several were close behind the lead five, ready to move in if someone faltered. Brigman had the lead at the end of the fourth lap, but it was still tight, and Teuscher was only 18 seconds behind him, with Davis four seconds off his lmmper. In '.::!I!

Bates, racing a Baja Bug for the first time (he's a Class 9 driver, usually), and then Brent Grizzle and Brett Discoll were fourth. Kyle and Joel Whitted, usually a top team in this class, broke on the first lap. Lund continued to lead through the second lap, with Schmidt hot on his bumper, and Grizzle and Driscoll moved into third, as Bates muddled along, missing second gear, and stuck in third for part of the lap. They finished the third lap in the same order, and then, on lap four, with Hernquist taking over for Lund, the team had built a lead of only three minutes and 32 seconds over Schmidt. B.J.'s dad, Gary, had taken over the driving, and he drove carefully, ·wondering when the rest of his gears would break, but was back in third place as Driscoll and Grizzle lost 15 minutes. Hernquist held his lead, and now the Schmidts changed drivers, putting brother Norm in for the last two laps. It seems that Norm had been given stub axles for Christmas, and that was what had brought the Schmidts out for the race. The Schmidts were still second, but now about 20 minutes back, after the car had mysteriously died at one point. The Bates team was still third, and Grizzle and Driscoll joined the ranks of the non finishers. Hernquist and Lund took the win, finishing just 15 minutes in front of the Schmidts, who had a smooth last lap. And the Bates team was third, seven minutes behind them.

It was close at the front of the pack, and almost the entire starting field was still running, so if anyone erred, there was a long line of cars waiting to move in front of him.

Young Jim Richardson drove his father's Class 9 Jimco while the SCORE-HORA champ did pit duty, and Jim finished fourth, with the lights gone. Hector and Oscar Ledezma drove a family built racer in Challenger action and they stayed close to the front, eventually finishing fifth in class.

for the first time since he hurt his shoulder in a roll over, so it was a disappointment for all. Class 9 was the biggest class at 25 strong, and had several different leaders, but as darkness fell Larry Cossio and Steve Fenton took over first place and won the big class in the Chaparral. Dale and Bob Snaith ran well for the second time out in their 5-1600, and late in the race they moved up the charts and surprised even themselves by taking the lead on the last lap and winning the race. Danny Ledezma continued to lead, chased by Goodrich, and now with Jim and Jason Beeson in third place, in their "Red Dog". Kerr and Acosta moved up to fourth spot, and Holmes and El Wardani were fifth. The other Ledezma team didn't make it through their second lap. On the next lap Goodrich moved to the front, as Ledezma lost a few minutes and dropped to second place. Holmes and El Wardani had climbed to third, followed by Kerr and Acosta, and now Bob andDale ~ was right there in second place. Millerd was still third, only two minutes later, followed by Cossio, and then Huffman, in fifth. But the next thing we saw of both Blue and Millerd, they were on the ends of tow ropes. And, at the end of the fourth lap the lead was in the hands of Watson's co-driver, Jeff Bennett. He now had a little over two minutes on Cossio's co-driver, Steve Fenton. Huffman had put Shane Reed in the driver's seat, and Reed was now third, followed by Steve R eynolds, in Jack Hettinger's Funco single seater, in fourth place. Running fifth it was Jim Richardson, racing for only the second time, in his father's single seat Jimco. Dad, Rich Richardson, SCORE/HDRA's reigning Class 9 champ, was doing unaccustomed duty as pit crew. The ranks were thinning out, and it was getting dark. Bennett had a flat tire and lost about six minutes, and Fenton moved into the lead. Bennett still held second, and Reed ran third, with Richardson, who was watching his only light wobble loosely on the mount, in fourth place. In fifth it was now Hector and Oscar Ledezma, in their Ledezma single seater. Reynolds, who found himself down to only low gear, conferred with Hettinger and then decided to go for the last lap, since the team needed to finish in order to secure their season points position. So he headed out into the dark with one gear and a lot of optimism. Fenton held his steady pace, to take the win, while Bennett stormed hard, but couldn't quite catch up, finishing second, only 58 seconds behind him. In third place it was Huffman and Reed, who'd never managed to finish an FRT race before this. Then Richardson, whose light had quietly fallen off unnoticed, stumbled through his last lap really in the dark, to finish fourth, followed in by the Ledezma tcnm. Reynolds tossed a few fan belts, but did finally finish his low gear run, in seventh place. Another member of the Ledezma team, Danny, got things off to a good start in Class 5-1600, by taking the first lap lead, with the class fast lap of 43:44. He had Brian Goodrich behind him in second, and then more Ledezmas, Mario, Jr. and Mario, Sr., in third place. In fourth place it was John Holmes and Ramsey El Wardani, and then Josh Kerr and Dave Acosta ran fifth. One of off road's founding families, the DeVercelleys, had an entry, with Andy, Jr. driving and uncle Chuck riding, and they lost their trans on the first lap, and didn't get to have much fun at all.

r;.,. Snaith were fifth, as the Beesons lost about 50 minutes. They finished the fourth lap with Holmes and El Wardani in the lead, and Kerr and Acosta a minute and 24 seconds behind them in second place. The Snaiths .were third, with Goodrich's co-driver, Charlie Watters, fourth, and Scott Plunkett and Todd McAllaster ran fifth, struggling with a front shock mount that kept breaking. Ledezma lost about 50 minutes with a broken c.v. and fell way back. Holmes and El Wardani had only a minute and 15 seconds on Kerr and Acosta at the end of lap five, and not far behind them it was the Snaiths, then, after about 40 minutes, Ledezma, and the Beesons, who had had a long third lap. Goodrich and Watters lost a steering u joint and fell out. This race had a surprise ending, and when the checkered flag waved for the first 5-1600, it wasn't either of the hard running leaders, but the Snaith brothers, getting a victory in the second time out for their car. They were surprised also, and allowed as how they had seen a couple of 5-1600s parked out on the course, but it was dark, and it had been hard to know who they were. After a wait of 18 minutes the team of Kerr and Acosta came in, happy they still held second place after figuring their fuel needs incorrectly for their new air cleaner. They'd run out and had to beg some from a chase truck. About 25 minutes later Danny Ledezma made it in, also having run out of gas, in third place, and he was followed by the Beesons, in fourth. Holmes and El Wardani, who'd driven such a beautiful race, lost a full hour on that last lap, out in the hanging dust, and straggled back in fifth place, the last car to finish six laps. Class 7, which includes both two wheel drive and four wheel drive small trucks, was the last class to take the green flag. Ronnie Gibson and Clarence Hoskins had their Ford Ranger in front at the end of the first lap, with a minute and 4 7 seconds on Lloyd Riggins, who has put a Chevy into what used to be a Toyota. In third it was Richie Valencia and Roy Garcia in a Toyota, followed by Rudy Ludeke and Nick Crouch in a Mazda. Gibson and Hoskins led through the second lap, but · Valencia and Garcia moved into second place, only 18 seconds behind them. Riggins was third, and Ludeke and Crouch ran fourth. At the end of the third lap it was Valencia and Garcia in the lead, now with 36 seconds on Hoskins and Gibson, while Riggins, and the Ludeke/Crouch team ran third and fourth. Valencia and Garcia had got the feel of things, and cranked out the fast lap for the class on lap four, to get a firm grip on the lead, with 14 minutes on Gibson and Hoskins, who'd had some mechanical problem, but still held second place. Ludeke and Crouch had moved up to third, 22 minutes behind them, while Riggins ran fourth, 1 7 seconds later. Valencia and Garcia ran another good lap, to hold their lead, and Gibson and Hoskins ran a slightly better one, to close up a bit, but were still 11 minutes behind them in second. Ludeke and Crouch came along 34 minutes later in third place, followed by Riggins, 11 minutes behind them, and by now, no one else was running. It was fully dark now, and when the dust cleared a bit it was Gibson and Hoskins taking the checkered flag first, as Valencia and Garcia lost 20 minutes, and fell back to second, after having led for three laps. Both the Ludeke/Crouch team and Riggins ended their race at the end of lap five, giving them third and fourth respectively. As the full moon rose over the desert, a slight breeze came up to clear away the dust, and Fud folded up his checkered flag to signify the end of the race. It was clear and cold and beautiful, and just exactly the right kind of weather for standing around a campfire to celebrate New Year's Eve. The weekend closed the next morning with the tasty and rejuvenating FR T buffet breakfast, which included fresh fruit, hard cooked eggs, doughnuts, coffee, orange juice and Bloody Marys, all on the FRT. lt's a nice tradition which draws the racers and their families into a friendly group for an hour or so before the 1 presentation of the awards, and gives everyone a chance to exchange stories, and get to know one another a little better.

Shadows were long at the start of the Amateur Open Off Road final. Dan Foddrill, center, took the win with Mike Hathcox, right, second. Jeff Hustin catches a little air at Canyon Raceway en route to the Baja Bug main event win, and he also won one of the pair of heat races. John Chafey came from behind and used every inch of his suspension to win the hotly contested Amateur Buggy finale in Division #1. Neil Affinito blasted to the Ultralight victory, leading flag to flag in the main event and taking over midway in the first heat race too. Richard Anderson won the first Baja Bug heat, but dropped to second in the main, and was second in the second heat after a rollover. Don Kott, #37, flies past Bill Barkdoll and he led much of the Pro main event, but broke down just before taking the white flag.

"I feel real good, "said Austin after his win. "I had a lot of fun out there today. Good run with Kalt, the old desert car can still do it1 The heats went good. The main was the tough one -that's where the money is -but it turned out good in the end. I'd like to thank all my family and friends for helping." Held in early December, Battle #2 featured a new course in Canyon's oval. Starting outside Turn Four, the route then took the racers down the m ain straightaway and over two jumps. Then it was into the infield with a rough hairpin and up over another jump. Next another 180° turn put the racers through a series of stutter bumps. Here the March 1991 course differed for some classes. The Baja Bugs, Road Warriors, and Amateur Buggies had another 180°, this time to the left onto the back stretch while all the rest continued straight up and over a flyaway jump and then leapt out of the oval. A sweeping left then brought them back onto the oval in Turn Two over an off camber jump. Here, where the courses rejoined, were some high speed jumps leading into Turns Three and Four, both punctuated with jumps. A fine turnout of race cars saw 4 7 entries on hand, including five Ultralights. Once again, two heats and a final were held for each class, with ample practice beforehand. And practice was a real kick from the stands. The track was very wet, and buggies were everywhere, coming over the grandstand jumps backwards, etc. But no major damage resulted. Cecil Hogan tried out his sub-$300 Road Warrior Torino (already nicknamed "The Pumpkin"). And while the old bomb took the jumps fairly well, carb troubles sidelined him. In the first Ultralight heat, Bob Kirkwood grabbed the lead and held it 'til lap three when Neil Affinito took over. Rick Geiser was third, Kelly Harold fourth and Ron Powell DNF'd. The first round of Amateur Buggy competition saw John Chafey out front of Pat Meenan, Alan Will, Ricky Smith, Todd Tay \or, A.J. Bien, Mory Lashier and Chris Coleman. Meenan took over the lead on lap three and Coleman had moved into sixth. Chafey regained the lead on lap five of six and held it to the finish with Smith second, Taylor third, Will fourth and Coleman fifth. Division #2 of Amateur Buggies first heat was led wire-to-wire by Zack McKinley. Randy Smay had almost passed him on lap three but broke an axle. Matt Biancani was second, Dave Taylor third, and Dalton McCombs was fourth. Keith Randel DNF'd with a broken CV. Next on track were the Baja Bugs, four strong. Jeff Hustin led lap one with Richard Anderson second, Eric Bazinaw third and Chris Lindsey fourth. Anderson took the lead on lap two and won Heat #1. Next were the Amateur Open Off Road cars. In Division #1 Tony Pierce led lap one with Greg Oswskey second, Dwight Smith third, Rod Shugg fourth, and John Stuart fifth. Oswskey took over the lead on lap two and won the heat. Division #2 was led by Mike Williams until he was DQ'd for passing a red flag after Bruce Mills flipped. Mike Hathcox went on to win the heat, ahead of Nels Dutton and Troy Churchman. The Stadium 1650 and Pro Open Off Road classes were combined for the purse. Tom Murray dominated division #1 's first heat until his tranny let go on lap five of eight. Bob Austin took Bob Austin puts his Dir Trix through its paces in a hairpin turn, and Bob drove his desert Class 10 to the Pro Open victory in both the main event and the second heat for combined Class 1 /2 and 10.

Dan Spencer won Division #2 's first heat after passing Don Kalt and the rest DNF'd. In the Ultralights' second bout, with the starts inverted, Kirkwood again took the lead, but Affinito was out front on lap two. Geiser was third and Powell DNF'd again. . Zack McKinley, John Chafey, and Dave Taylor survived the second heat of Division #1 Amateur Buggies, in that order, with four others not finishing. Alan Will led Division #2 ahead of Dyer, Randel and Taylor among others off the start, but McCombs took the heat followed by Bien, Coleman, Will and Dyer. Heat #2 for the Baja's was a parade first and last, but for the middle where Anderson rolled and then regained second: Hustin, Anderson, Lindsey, Bazinaw. Heat #2 of Division # 1 Amateur Off Road saw Dan F,oddrill take the win, with Hathcox second, Pierce third and Dutton fourth. And Division# 2 Amateur Off Road saw Williams win ahead of Shugg, Mills, Churchman and Stuart. Then the Pro's got their second shot at the track. A pile up off the start saw Spencer sandwiched between Greene and Stump, all three stuck together like a Chinese puzzle. A skiploader and a deft track crew soon untangled the mess. On the restart ... Austin got out front with Greene second and Whitmoyer third throughout. Kalt was fourth at the flag, Barkdoll fifth. Now came the final events. Affinito led flag-to-flag for the Ultralight win, with Kirkwood second, and Geiser. third. Thirteen cars lined up for the nine lap Amateur Buggies final. Zack McKinley led Meenan, Bien, Taylor and McCombs on lap one. From the back, Chafey was charging hard and by lap five had taken over fifth, just as McKinley lost his left rear wheel and the race was stopped to clear the track. In single file order they restarted with McCombs in the lead followed by Meenan, Taylor, Chafey and Lashier. Chafey put the hammer down and soon was on McCombs' tail. The latter missed a shift on the last lap and Chafey edged by for the win. Taylor held third, Bien fourth and Will fifth among seven finishers. The Baja Bug final belonged to Hustin with Anderson the only other finisher; Lindsay stopped by engine troubles and Bazinaw blowing a tranny. "We ran real well today," said Hustin. "Thanks to our sponsors, Best Auto Parts in Tucson. It's good to see the Bajas coming back out again. And special thanks to our Dusty Times engine and tranny man, John Lively." In the Amateur Open Off Road final, it was Dan Foddrill flag-to-flag in a big Raceco, Hathcox held second until a lap six spin, when Dutton took over with Shug third. Then he was out and Churchman grabbed third. At the flag, Hathcox was back in second, Dutton1:hirddespite rolling, Mills fourth, Churchman fifth and Pierce sixth.

The race activity· began on the Friday evening with tech and contingency set up in the parking lot of the sponsoring Showboat Hotel and Casino, and it was a cold afternoon that worked into an even colder evening as the sun set. SNORE prudently put the registration activity inside the hotel in an unused banquet room, but the winter weather didn't seem to discourage folks. There was a good amount of contingency donors in the parking lot and plenty of racers going through with their cars in the early hours of the schedule. Saturday morning the sky was clear and the sun came out over the Nelson Hills in the Eldorado Valley, near Boulder City, the site 'f:• ~~"'~~ of the start/ finish line by an old motocross course. The race route was about 54 miles around, u·tilizing mostly roads used for the . back side of the Mint 400 a few years back. It was more rough than smooth and five laps were required for an official finish for most classes, except 9, 5-1600 and mini trucks. Promptly at 9 :00 a.m. the Class 1, 2 and 5 cars, grouped together for prize money, were ready to leave the start line. The Nelson & Nelson Chevrolet Class 8 truck sensibly seeded first away with number 100, had Larry Ragland at the wheel.

Larry Trimble and family flew the tidy Class 1-2-1600 racer neatly and they did well in the rocks, fifth in the class and a keen sixth overall. The Wait Is Over!!!

Barry Slatter was the last one off the line · and the first one around on the first lap with a 1:29:35. He then led all the rest of the four laps and won the race. What the times don't show is that Barry had the Joe Jackson and Pat Galliher Bug in his mirror all day, as they did a 1 :30:54 first lap. Kevin and David Streety did a 1:31:33, so three of the four Bugs were in each other's dust. Vince Alcouloumre took 2:07:14 to complete lap 1 for unknown reasons. On lap 2 Slatter and Jackson both did 1:29 laps, Slatter's lead now down to mere seconds. In third it was Vince Alcouloumre/ Mike Molina with a 1 :33 lap while Streety had a disastrous three hour time. In spite of a driver change and a flat on lap 3, Joe Jackson and Pat Galliher were still only a couple of minutes behind Slatter, the Streety Bug did a 1:29:27 but ran out of time to complete the fourth go, and ended up fourth. Slatter turned his best lap of the day, 1:26:47 on the last one,.,,but Pat Galliher really put on the pressure and turned in fast lap for the class at 1 :24:56, almost pushing Barry across the finish line, but Slatter won and Pat and Joe were second, by a minute 23 seconds. Also running out of time on lap 4 Vince Alcouloumre and Mike Molina were third. The truck class makes a real short story. Maybe SNORE should bill this as the race that's too tough for trucks, as none of them made it over the halfway point. Stacey Pike rolled on the first lap, got going again and broke the rear end, and didn't cover a lap. Tom Cornwell broke the rear end on his truck before he finished a lap. Mike Lesle led Turbo Lamke by just over a minute as both Jeeps had a good first lap.

Kevin and David Streety and Dorothy Klick ran very well on lap 1 and 3, but lap 2 was a disaster, and they ran out of time to get a finish. Kenny Freeman Jr. was within six minutes of the leader after two laps, but his 1-2-1600 slowed a tad and expired on the last lap. spectator ranks. Mike Dixon stretched his lead to nearly four minutes and Pennington got past Crain to take over second. Monty Smith and Steve Thompson held on in fourth and fifth place. Lap 3 was the end of Mike Dixon's charge as he needed a dentist because the teeth had fallen off his ring gear due to getting hit by a faster car. Dale Looney joined him in the pits for good as did Steve Burke, all with only two of the four laps completed. Steve was sharing the driving with Mike Kline and Mike's wife Tracey. Tracey claims she is the only one who didn't break something on the car, although she did get booted off the course and onto a large rock by one of the big cars. She said there was plenty of room to pass, and the jerk was either D.W.H.U.A. or just liked to hit people. Bryan Pennington led the last two laps and went faster every around. His last lap was fast time for the class, at 1: 15:24, and he ended up with a 38 minute cushion on Tim Crain. Tim lost a throttle cable on the last lap and finished the race driving with one hand and running the throttle with the other. Gene Griepentrog ran a steady race and finished third, another 13 minutes down, while Monty Smith nursed a disintegrating car home in fourth. Steve Thompson slipped from third on lap 3 to fifth at the end of four laps due to some serious last lap problems. Don Chase, who finished last overall right on the time limit, said "I don't care what anybody says; if that course is 53 miles long, 35 of it is that rocky damn power line." Joe Jackson said, "The fast parts are real fast, but those rocks are sure rough." Someone else said the rocks weren't really rough anymore. They're still big, but they've been hit so many times, most of them are getting round. Anybody who didn't have fun at the Showboat 250 should probably consider taking up pavement racing. Even racers who broke, and there were a lot of them, seemed to be having nearly as much fun as the winners. For . whatever reason, good humor and smiles pervaded the tech area after the race. After some participants were up to the witching hour Saturday night at the HORA-SCORE awards banquet, nearly everybody appeared midmorning on Sunday at the Showboat Hotel and Casino for the traditional awards brunch. The Showboat cooks trotted out almost everything you might ever think about eating for brunch at this buffet breakfast, and off Dusty Times roaders stoked up before outgoing SNORE President Pat Galliher started the actual awards presen-tations.

He knows it takes a power-ful yet reliable ignition to win in off-road. March 1991 Ignitions For Winning Running an off-road race is the ultimate test of man and machine. The physical poundings that off-road racing dishes out can eliminate a vehicle in just a few miles. At MSD, we design and test our ignitions to insure they'll live through seasons of off-road racing. To test the design of our MSD Ignition Controls, we've built our own "Baja" simulator. Actually, this is a unique machine that has a base with a 1 horsepower vibrating motor attached. The base assembly rides on four heavy duty springs. An MSD Ignition is then mounted solidly to the base. This "Baja" simulator vibrates on three axes and will induce around 7 Gs of force on the ignition control. In just a short period of time, this vibration can simulate the effects that seasons of .. off-road racing will have on the internal components of our ignitions. MSD engineers can then beef up the components that are affected by vibration and build a better ignition that will survive the rigors of off-road racing and win races. It Pays To Win With MSD! For 1991, MSD has posted $14,400 in awards for the HORA/SCORE contingency program. At each of the eight HORA and SCORE events, $1,800 will be distributed among the eligible winners in nine classes. Winners in classes: 1/2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 7S, 7 4X4, 8 and 10 can each claim $200 if they run an MSD 5, 6, or 7 Series Ignition Control and display MSD Con-tingency Decals on both sides of the vehicle throughout the entire event. *Not legal for sale or use in California on pollution controlled motor vehicles.

Happiness is winning the Sport Truck main event in your Nissan if your name is Roger Mears. He also placed second in heat 2 as the truck ran like a champion, and Miss Toyota offers her congratulations at the finish line of the hectic feature race. During the winter break there had been some significant changes in driver assignments, particularly among the truck and UltraStock entries. Rod Millen, many time rally champion and former part time Mazda Grand National truck racer, joined Ivan Stewart on the two truck Toyota team, and Roger Mears Jr. now has a full schedule on his father's Nissan team. Walker Evans Racing has replaced the Jeeps of 1990 with Dodge Dakotas for Walker and Glenn Harris. Rob MacCachren now has a full time job with Venable Racing driving the Rough Rider Ford Ranger in the stadiums as well as the potent Ford in Class 8 in the desert. After years of struggling as a semi privateer Danny Thompson has a two truck Chevy team with desert ace Larry Ragland as driver of the second S-10. Dan Esslinger had a new paint job on his Ford Ranger, that Robby Gordon was supposed to drive at Anaheim, but he arrived too late from Daytona for practice or qualifying so Dan drove the truck. Willie Valdez, Ford, rounded out the truck field. Jeep Cher o kee drivers in UltraStock action included Tommy Croft, Lloyd Castle, Jack Millerd and Jim Smith. John Tommy Croft parked his 1600 and went Jeep racing this year, and he won his heat race in the Cherokee easily and came back to win the high attrition main event by a country mile. March 1991 With extensive backing from Chevrolet this season, Danny Thompson rewarded the sponsors by winning the first heat and taking third in the main event. Gersjes had a Nissan Pathfinder as did Chris Neil, and Brian Stewart and Paul Nissley each drove a Toyota 4 Runner. The utilities sure out numbered the cars at Anaheim. Defending champ Larry Noel was back in his VW as wasJeffE\rod, and Joe Anchondo made his debut in the former Chris Neil VW. Back in Porsches were Brian Collins and Tim Lewis. There were many new cars in 1600 class, mostly Chenowths, and nearly the entire entry had new paint schemes. The Herbst team, Trov, Tim and Ed, and Brian Collins not only had new looking cars, but a brand new tractor trailer rig with a fancy paint job. Fathers Jerry Herbst and Marty Collins laughingly said the young men were spending their inherit-ance now. Fellow Las Vegan Aaron Hawley h ad a slick Chenowth as well. But the spoiler in this class was Marty Hart. The former ATV Champion and current Class 5 champion in the HORA-SCORE desert series ,qualified fastest in the 21 car field in a Chenowth. The afternoon pit action saw the Venable team trying to cure a blown head gasket problem in MacCachren's Ford. T he Sage Council team were changing the automatic trans in Jerry Whelch-.. el's new Chenowth, as the original one had locked up tight in third gear on the way to qualifying. Brian Stewart had the ride in an older W elchel 1600 and Marty Coyne had purchased last year's Sage Council Chenowth. After the traditional autograph session the Grand National Trucks lined up for their first eight lap heat race on the course which had a few new wrinkles and either /or routes to facilitate passing. Danny Thompson got the hole shot off the line with Dan Esslinger and Glenn Harris right on his bumper, followed by the Mears, father, then son, MacCach-ren, Ivan Stewart and Walker Evans. Thompson held his lead while the fight for second was tight between Harris and Mears Sr. while Jr. held fourth, fighting off MacCachren. Midway the order remained the same, but the ranks had closed up some, and Rod Millen retired after he and Esslinger ran into the wall on the final turn of lap 4. Moving toward the final lap the trucks stretched out except that Harris got close to Thompson as they lapped Willie Valdez. Danny Thompson won in the Goodrich Chevy, followed in by Goodyear shod Glenn Harris and Bridgestone's Roger Mears and Roger Jr. The first UltraStock heat held Making the switch from 1600s to UltraLites has been rewarding for Greg George, and at the season opener he won the pole, his heat race and the main event in his Nature's Recipe sponsored Briggsbuilt.

This heat turned into a parade after the initial banging of fiberglass, and they really stretched out. Tommy Croft had an easy win in the Jeep, and Brian Stewart was comfort-able in second in his Toyota. Jim Smith ended up a long third in his Jeep and the first five cars were all on Goodyear tires. There were only six in the next UltraStock heat but it had a lot of crashing about. Brian Collins led off the line with John Gersjes and Larry Noel fighting for second. On lap 2 Chris Neil hit Collins coming out of an either/or and the Porsche flipped. The yellow flag caused a restart, and Collins made it with the entire engine hood flapping. Collins got sideways and Gersjes got the lead. Coming out of the last turn Gersjes and Neil bumped sending Neil into the side rail and out of the race; Gersjes got to the end of the straight and hit the railing. Only the front two were circulat-ing at race speed so the race was flagged after four laps.

Brian Stewart has both this Toyota and a Chenowth for the stadium series, and he did well in the UltraStock action, taking second in his heat and the main. Chris Neil switched from a VW to this Nissan in U/traStock racing this year, and, despite this mishap, he went on to third place in the main event. Dan Esslinger did a super job in his Ford, holding all the factory guys at bay on course, many times, and here is followed by Walker Evans, Dodge. Larry Noel had his 1600 Chenowth going well, and was third in the first heat, but he lost a wheel midway in the wild main event competition. John Gersjes has a tidy Nissan this year, and the former Odyssey racer drove to a fine fourth in the main event for UltraStock class. Jimmy Smith started out strong in his Jeep Cherokee and finished fourth in the first UltraStock heat, but faded in the traffic messes of the main. The Super 1600 entry was down a bit from previous years, but a competitive bunch started the first heat, 11 strong. They didn't get far as there was a pile up in the first turn, that crunched several including Marty Hart and Marty Coyne, and Ed Herbst flipped. With not one lap done, there was a complete restart. Marty Coyne led off the line, with Frank Arciero, Jr. and Larry Noel in close pursuit, and several others were close in the early going. Coyne and Arciero had a tight run, but Noel dropped back followed by Wes Elrod and Bill Goshen. Midway in the eight lapper Arciero got past Coyne to lead. Noel held third ahead of THE Elrod and they stayed in order for away from the herd. It was quiet a few laps as the field stretched for a few laps, then Mustard got out. At the flag it was Frank side by side with Gordon several Arciero Jr. winning handily over times. Rice was now third and Marty Coyne and Larry Noel, close, while Nichols, Whelchel while Bill Goshen just edged and Smith were having their own Elrod's Mirage for fourth at the war further back. Gordon and flag. The front four were all in Mustard were hard at each other, Goodrich shod Chenowths. and just before the white flag The ten car second Super 1600 Mustard made the pass. So the heatfeaturedacleanstartandBob 1990 points champ Mitch Gordon grabbed the lead from the Mustard, with Gordon on his flag, but had Mitch Mustard, bumper, won his first race of the Kevin Smith, Jimmy Nichols, new season. Mustard's cousin Jerry Whelchel, and Danny Rice Danny Rice was a strong third following in a tight pack. The with Whelchel, Smith and second lap order read Gordon, Nichols still at it in his wake. Mustard, Rice, nose to tail, then There was another intermission Jimmy Nichols, Jerry Whelchel, in which a pair of Honda Pilots and Kevin Smith, also pulling driven by DJs were supposed to do a couple of exhibition racing laps. After some time the two ..,ilots took off, but one flipped ,ight away and the other drove on WRIGHT .sedately, but it did make a nice break to replenish food and drink supplies. It was nearly ten o'clock when the UltraStock main event got under way for seven laps and eleven were on the grid. Tommy Croft shot off i:he line into the lead with Jeff Elrod hot on his bumper. Chris Neil and Joe Anchondo hit at the end of the first lap, and Neil's Nissan ended up on top of Anchondo's VW, formerly a Neil entry. A yellow flag and a restart were called for, while Anchondo retired, but Neil got back in line. On the restart it was Croft, Elrod and Collins off the line, but a lap later Brian Stewart had taken third spot from Collins, and Larry Noel was now in fifth. Tim Lewis flipped his Porsche two turns from the end of the third lap almost going over the wall, bringing out another yellow flag and another restart. This time Elrod almost got past Croft off the line, but it was Croft in the lead on the second turn, and soon Larry Noel took over second spot putting Elrod back to third followed by Lloyd Castle and PLACE~. COIL SPRING YOUR FRONT END! The coil springs you are seeing on cars in magazines and at the finish line, are products of The Wright Place. You can use them on Fox, Bilstei.n, or Rough Country's Nitro Charger. Springs are available in 1, 2, or 3 stages, and various lengths. Easy to install and adjust. Wrenches come with the kit f<?r adjus.tments. Another great idea from the front end experts of off road racing. 9420 FLINN SPRINGS LANE, EL CAJON, CA 92021 (619) 561-4810 Page 26 Brian Stewart. But then Noel lost a wheel and parked, and Tommy Croft had a full straight-a-way lead. Elrod was taken out of contention by Castle when the -two crashed into the wall along March 1991 the back straight. Only Elrod was able to continue. Tommy Croft won the race by a huge margin in the Goodyear Jeep. Doing well Brian Stewart was second, in the Goodyear Toyota. Chris Neil made a comeback to finish third in his Goodrich Nissan, and John Gersjes was fourth in a Yokohama ' Nissan. The 4 Wheel A TV Main event had 18 of the tiny racers off the line into their usual get offs and traffic jams. Erik Cobb was the early leader followed by Charles Shepherd, but near the end of the third lap these two tangled. Mark Ehrhardt was there to slip past them both and win the race on a Honda. Shepherd was second, also on a Honda and Kenneth Delk snagged third on an A TK. The SuperLites also had 18 on the starting grid for the main event, and this was a good race. Rory Holladay led the first two laps but then Greg George got close and passed to lead and win. Sean Finlay also passed Holladay on the last of seven laps, but Holladay held on in third place · followed by Gilbert Valdez and Terry Peterson. The Super 1600 main event was the closest race for the win of all the entire evening. Bob Gordon snagged the lead at the green flag with teammate frank Arciero Jr. right with him, but it wasn't long before Marty Coyne slid into second, putting Arciero back to third with Mitch Mustard closing in on him. After four of the 12 laps the order was Gordon, Glenn Harris sailed one of the new Dodge Dakotas nicely around the tight course, and he finished second in the first Sport Truck heat at Anaheim. Frank Arciero, leading here, and Mitch Mustard were often side by side in the 1600 main, but their Chenowths were trapped behind Gordon's car and they were third and fourth, each man having won his heat race.

Kevin Smith avoided all the wreckage in the Super 1600 main event, and drove the Mirage around it all to place fifth at the checkered flag. Danny Rice was really excited about his surprise victory in the 1600 main event, and here he tries to both wave at the cheering crowd and get his helmet strap undone. Rob MacCachren made his debut on the Ford team at Anaheim, but both traffic and mechanical woes slowed him to fifth in the first heat race. Bill Goshen ran his Chenowth hard in the first Super 1600 heat race, but got caught in traffic jams in the main event, which had plenty of jams. Wes Elrod runs his Mirage mainly with VORRA, but came to Anaheim with the family and managed to stay clean and finish seventh in the 1600 main,. Desert ace Larry Ragland made his debut in stadium truck racing and flew the team Chevrolet in style, taking fourth in the second truck heat. with Arciero, Mustard and Coyne all tied together in a train behind him and Danny Rice ran fifth. Mustard made a couple of tries at passing Arciero, which gave Gordon the opportunity to stretch his lead a tad. Larry Noel crashed into Jerry Whelchel, putting Jerry over the guard rail, high centered and out of the race. Midway it was Gordon, then a gap to Arciero, Mustard and Rice in tight formation, followed at a respectable distance by Coyne. The pressure was on all four front runners lap after lap in a most exciting dice. Then on the last lap on the short chute before the final turn Arciero and Mustard hit trying to avoid Bob Gordon, whose Chenowth had flat quit just before the last turn heading to the checkered flag. While they were backing away from Gordon, Danny Rice safled past to take the surprise victory, and after taking the flag he turned off and immediately jumped out of the car waving his arms at the audience. Marty Coyne, back far enough to avoid the wreck, passed to finish second, and Mitch Mustard salvaged third with Frank Arciero fourth, all Good-rich racers. Kevin Smith was fifth in his Goodyear Mirage, and Jimmy Nichols was sixth, in his Goodyear Chenowth. The motorcycle race competi-tion was over shadowed by the only serious accident of the evening. A rider went down midway in the race, didn't seem to be moving and was attended by medics where he fell until the race was over and the ambulance could get to him. The race itself was less dramatic as Tommy Glowers led from the first lap aboard a Kawasaki, and though challenged, was never headed and he won the race. Jim Holley worked his way through the crowd to be third on lap 4 and took over second, where he finished, when Joe Waddington went down in lap 8. Holley rides a Yamaha. Kyle Lewis was third on another Yamaha. TI1e final race of the meet is the Grand National Truck Main and all 11 made it back, many with fresh body panels. But, it wasn't Dusty Times long before the fiberglass was flying all over the track. It was Ivan Stewart and Roger Mears off the line in a tight side by side dash, but on that first lap Walker Evans bumped and rode Rod Millen close to the wall on the front straight, and Evans not only flipped, his Dodge caught fire. The fire was put out quickly, the Dakota put back on its wheels, and Millen was pulled out of the fence before the restart. Evans was penalized to the back of the pack for causing the incident. The restart lap was nearly completed with Mears taking the hole shot, when Roger Mears Jr. and Ivan Stewart tangled coming out of the either I or lanes. Stewart literally stood the Toyota on its nose and it hung there for many seconds aE if stuck, but he got back to ground after they pulled Mears Jr. and his Nissan out from under the Toyota. Ivan went back for another restart, but Roger Jr. was done for the night. The third time was the charm, and for the third time Roger Mears led off the line, now with Rod Millen, Danny Thompson, Ivan Stewart and Glenn Harris close in pursuit and there were lots of flapping body panels. As the field stabilized it was Mears, Stewart, Thompson, Millen, Harris, Evans, Ragland, Esslinger, MacCachren and Willie Valdez. The order held for a few laps, then MacCachren retired with both doors coming off and. Evans passed both Harris and Millen, but nothing changed up front as the Nissan had a long lead. A happy Roger Mears won the main event for Nissan and Bridgestone, thrilled to start the season on such a positive note. Ivan Stewart held on in second with scant body panels left, and Danny Thompson, also with a near naked trl,\ck, got third, while Walker Evans salvaged fourth in the debut of Dodge Dakotas in stadium racing. Rod Millen was fifth in the second Toyota, and Glenn Harris was sixth in the other Dodge. Still running at the checkered flag were Larry Ragland and Dan Esslinger. MTEG has an ambitious ten race schedule for 1991, with the next one at San Diego's Jack Murphy Stadium on February 23; then they head to the Rose Bowl in March before going east for most of the summer season. Factory involvement from Detroit, as well as Japan, is heavier than ever, now in UltraStock competition as well as the long standing commitments to the Grand National Truck class.

LA RANA NEW YEAR'S 100 Scott Flamson and Jerry Penhall Win By Seconds By Carol Clark Photos: Trackside Photos, Inc. The team of Scott Flamson and Jerry Penhall won a real cliff hanger on time in the Jimc~. taking the Unlimited h~nors and first overall by a slim 22 seconds, after losing third gear on the last lap. The La Rana New Year's 200 at the race progressed, the cars dried Barstow, CA ran just a little bit out the course pretty well, and by behind schedule, but a total of 84 the fourth and fifth laps it was cars got in line, ready to take the almost business as usual. green light.

She With the previous two days gave me one of those bone rain in the desert, the Start/ Finish crushing hugs and said, "now line looked more like a mud bog we're having fun". The old adage than a race course.

Jerry motorcycle racers do, hence their was piloting the Jimco during the shields and pumper helmets were last half of the race and said he had immediately covered with mud, Bob Richey in sight most of the and you can't just wipe the mud time.

He to see, to keep them on the race wasn't quite as happy as he course. At the finish line 90 usually is at the finish line, but he' percent of those interviewed said was still pleased. Bob had his they'd take the dust any day. As steering box come loose in the third lap and lost his right side secondary in the second. He had a total of seven minutes down time, which is very unusual for this veteran. He did say it was fun to have somebody to play with. Usually he's one of the first cars off the line and that is the last he sees of the others until his Raceco starts lapping them. I have a feeling that Richey's racing stable is undergoing some changes, and he will have his former race car out instead of his faithful pre-runner for the balance of the La Rana series. Look out Jerry and Scott! Keith Jackson got his Raceco home third in Class 1/2, fourth overall, about 20 minutes back, and he was the last class finisher out of eight starters. His only problems were one flat and people not moving out of the way so he could pass. Maybe next time Keith. Nobody else covered more than three laps. The third overall finisher was Alan Hensley, the Class 10 winner. He drove solo, as he's not quite used to, but liked it. He lost the power steering at the start of lap 4. Needless to say his arms and hands were a little sore at the end of the race. Alan had one flat on the last lap and finished the race with a disposable diaper (stolen from his baby daughter's diaper bag) covering his manifold; it was ic!ng up, so quick thinking by his Alan Hensley drove solo this race, and despite losing the power steering on the last lap, he sailed home the Class 10 winner and third overall in the single seat West. pit crew kept him going. Taking second in Class 10, fifth overall, was Tony Modica, less than eight minutes behind. This was his second time in the car but his very first race in it, and I think he did quite well. He had one flat on his last lap, and said it was a good race, but the course was not as tough as he thought it would be. Bob Miller drove his Raceco to third in Class 10, just two minutes out of second. He said it was muddy and foggy and he was thankful he had a windshield, it really made a difference. He had to stop once to tighten his wiper motor, had two flats and ran on the last one for eight miles before he could get it changed. Of the 12 starters, eight finished, and they were, in order: Jeff Quinn, David Nickell, Lloyd Painter, Jeff Akins and Warren Messick. Class 1-2-1600 saw a repeat of the last race of the 1990 season. Doug Castillo brought in another winner. He's really starting to enjoy this. Doug was dicing it out with Brad Inch during the first two laps, but pulled away finally. It was not a cake walk by any means. He couldn't see because of the mud, so he took off his glasses and hit a Yucca tree. I'm not sure in what order this happened, but it did happen. Co-driver Chris Heryford said "Give me dust any day. The mud was really bad for a while, especially with· no wind-shield." Doug said that without Majors Racing Engines and Mendeola Transmissions, he'd still be in the back of the pack. Rob Myerly was second in Class 1-2-1600, just six minutes down. He and partner Alan Hensley have decided to run two cars this year. They will be taking turns driving them. Rob said there are a lot of people that help them with their racing endeavors and it's about time they got to have some fun too. So the boys will be having some new names as co-drivers in the two seater. Rob liked the course very much, but said there was too much mud, that made it difficu It to see, but he had a great time anyway. The 1990 1-2-1600 class champion Greg Akins brought in third place, just another four minutes back. Greg started this season with a new two seat Bunderson and said the car ran good, it was just under powered, but that will be taken care of by the next race. He lost two motor mounts towards the end of the race. His co-driver and mechanic, Russ Stevens got a little anxious when he turned around and saw the motor bouncing around. He was glad it didn't bounce out. Of the 18 starters in Class 1-2-1600, nine finished. In fourth was Larry Stephey, followed by Greg -Closely pursued here, Doug Castillo had some vision problems along the way, but despite hitting a tree on course he won the big Class 1-2-1600 honors by a good margin, over six minutes. Bob Richey borrowed a car to run the La Rana opener, but the Raceco served him well, and he was second in Class 1 /2 and overall by a couple of yards. !,, Keith Jackson completed the finishers in Class 1-2, in third place in his Raceco and fourth overall, and his only problem was one flat tire. Tony Modica placed second in Class 10 and fifth overall, but he sure found a mud hole early in the game, but was just eight minutes out of first. Page 28 March 1991 Dusty Times

Bob Miller ran with a windshield and said it sure helped in the tough weather conditions, and he drove his Raceco to a close third in Class 10. Rob Myerly grabbed second in Class 1-2-1600 in the Myerly/Hensley team's second car, and it can't get much better than a first and a second for a two car team. Greg Akins, the 1990 class champion, unveiled his new 1-2-1600 Bunderson, and survived broken motor mounts to take third in class, four minutes back. Mike Abbott placed second in Class 5-1600 and said his only problem was in the mud, which he said really slowed him down. Walter Sleppy got through the muddy conditions and kept moving down the course to finish third in Class 5-1600, about another half hour back. Danny Hunter drove the first two seater home in Class 9, and he finished well, third in the close running, 16 car Challenger field. Adler, Glen Coulter, Scott Ryan, top finishers were out early, not Class 5 had only four entries Bob Stockton and Richard even coming close to making the and Chuck Dodson brought he had a good time. He likes this series and is going to try to run the entire seven events. He had only minor troubles, which included one flat, and other than that, no complaints.

Bruce Mangold and his co-driver got an early mud bath, but they kept the Raceco moving swiftly, winning the tight battle for fourth in Class 9. Lynton Draper brought his Nissan all the way from South Africa to run the spring desert season, and he was a strong second in mini truck action. Mike Duncan took third in the combined small truck and sedan class in his Jeep CJ, and earned the Class 3 points for this event also. Stephen Wellington was back about half an hour, second in Class 11 in what looks like a newly built Beetle, and he was the last class finisher. Ramon and Kathy Maramba basically took it easy in their Class 15 Dodge pickup, saying they basically just wanted to finish, and they were second. Mary Sullivan, who also races short course in her Odyssey, kept it together on the rough course and took second in class with Suzuki power. IJlr' place. It was Sandy Parker in his Chenowth winning by over five minutes. He said he got some new gearing and the tranny worked great. He almost rolled it on the first lap, but regrouped to take off and chase Jim Clements after some cat and mousing. Finally got past and led to the flag, winning by about five minutes. Sandy really wanted to thank Clements for a great job of building his motor. Speaking of Jim Clements, the overall points champion for the 1990 La Rana Series, he didn't really know if he was glad he did such a good job on Sandy's engine. Jim's only problem was water on the spark plugs and that slowed him down enough for Sandy to pass him. He loved the course and didn't mind the course being muddy.

They were spread out more than two hours from the winner. Class 7 saw a real first timer. His name is Lynton Draper and he came to us from South Africa. He shipped his 1985 Nissan over to the States about three months ago and left South Africa himself on December 31st, and almost beat the truck here. He got to celebrate New Year's Eve three times, as the plane landed at various places during his voyage; boy did he have fun. Lynton came to race the first three SCORE/HORA 1991 races, and heard about the La Rana series and decided to give it a shot. He was really impressed with the course, the terrain ( very fast compared to what he's used to) and had a ball. All the people were so friendly and accommo-dating, he just couldn't get over it. His co-driver was Michael Katzmark, 70 years old, and doesn't look a day over Sd, and has been involved in our sport for ten years and hopes to do it another ten. Some of the hand signals Michael gave to Lynton were backwards to what Lyn ton is accustomed to, so speeding up and slowing down were kind of hairy until they got this little problem sorted out. Their Nissan· finished second in class. Lynton and his family are staying with Rick Scalzo in San Clemente for March 1991 Teenager Travis Howard won again in Class 11, despite breaking a spring plate, and the 1990 La Rana class champion is also running the SCORE-HORA Series and doing well there too. The Stone Stock Class attracts a variety of vehicles, and this time Bob took top honors in his Chevy pickup, winning by about 41 minutes. the three months they will be quarter panels back for the race here, and are really having a great truck; they sort of fe II off time. He says he needs his rear somewhere out on the course. He Among the four dyssey starters Art ibbs ran the quickest lap in the onda and won the class by nearly an hour, starting the year off right.

won't have time to send for them from home for the next race; they would never get here on time. In the combined mini truck, sedan and Class 3 group, as mentioned, Draper was second; Turbo Lamke won by 20 minutes in the Jeep. Turbo and his co-driver Tom Cornwell were quite surprised at the stiff competition he ran into and really had fun playing ~ith Lynton. I think Turbo ran over Lynton's rear fenders, and said he'll help look for them. Turbo was really impressed with the organization of the race; he too plans to run the whole series if he can. Turbo is a good competitor and it's nice to see a familiar face at a new series. Mike Duncan was third in his Jeep, another 20 minutes down, followed by Gary Keller, Rambler, and Jay King, Toyota. Only one failed to finish. Rich Fersch took first place in Class 5-1600 and said the whole event was fantastic. He is the 1990 SCORE/HORA champion for 5-1600 and loved this event. He wants to bring his co-drivers, Harry Dunne and David Allan back for more of this kind of fun. If he can swing it, he'll try for the whole series too. Mike Abbott, an-other familiar face, took second place 20 minutes back. He had no problems what-so-ever, and his only complaint was that the mud slowed him down. Walt Sleppy was back nearly half an hour in third, but he gcit lost in the crowd or didn't stick around to chat. I'll get him next time. Fred Heacock was another seven minutes back, the last finisher of the eight starters and we haven't seen Fred Heacock for many a moon. In Class 11 Travis Howard did it again. Even though he had 25 minutes down time with a broken spring plate, he still managed to bring home first place. I think he's getting to ·like this. Steve Wellington was back about half an hour, buttook second and was the last three lap finisher out of the four that started in the class. First in Stone Stock Class went to Bob Ryan, Chevy, who also disappeared, winning by 41 minutes. Of the five starters in Class 1500, four covered the three laps required. Ramon and Kathy Maramba took second, saying they had a lot of fun and basically _took it easy in the Dodge. They just wanted to finish. They did say that after the first lap a lot of rocks surfaced and they were dodging them all day. They had trouble keeping the hood fastened down, but when they found out they got second they were on Cloud 9. Curtis Lamb, Toyota, was a long third, closely followed home by Brady Helm. Class 44 had four starters, and Art Gibbs came in first in his Honda. Mary Sullivan was second with Suzuki power, and Donald Kleinhenz was a long third in his Odyssey. The lone disqualification was Gary Gressett in Class 9. Gary ran the start/finish checkpoint because of an ardent effort to catch the guy in front of him. He ·just got tunnel vision and blew it. He says he'll do better next time. It's back to Barstow on February 22-24 for La Rana's Presidential 250, over by the time you read this, then in May the series moves north to Ridgecrest, CA onto knobby bike trails, a good, tough course. DustyTirnes Watanabe Fastest at USA Sand Drags Radiator /DM Cleaning/ Natural Light Racing/Moron Bros. Racing Team and Orangatane Racing. By Elaine Jones There was a definite nip in the air last October as the USA Sand Association season wound down · to an end. It still didn't keep the crowd from coming.out and also enjoying the BBQ put on by Murphy's Irish Pub. With one more race to go some of the brackets are getting very intense while some competitors look to have a lock .on their division. Pro 1-3 looks to be one of those that is wide open with Robert Watanabe the Painter's Assistant from Guadalupe taking his new car to the win light in the bracket that you have to turn a 3.59 just to qualify for. His time was a 3.451 for a speed of 94. 73 mph. Richard Ends/Sahu Watanabe/Chance Auto and Perry's Auto Supply help his effort. Bill LeFever in "Whoo Yaa" a 427 Chevy Buggy sponsored by The Dunmast-ers/Doo Dah Racing and Toyo Optics Photographic Accessories was runner-up with a time of 3A 17 for 90.63 mph losing on reaction time. The Irvine based salesman was the '85-86 Sport Bracket Champ and the '86 Pro Chatnp. With a dial in of 3.60 Jim Owensby came pretty close in win.ning Pro 4 with a time of 3.733 for 84.98 mph. The self-employed competitor from Rialto was in "Show Time" a 350 Chevy Jeep sponsored by Jim's Custom Muffler /Danny O's Tire Service and Custom Engine Service. Bob Shugart, president of NSCA found the trip to his liking as he was a tick behind with a time of 3. 729 for a speed of 87.46 losing on reaction time.

NEW SOUTH WALES OFF ROAD LONG COURSE CHAMPIONSHIP McMillan's Mountain Classic Text & Photos: Darryl Smith ,~ --.,.~ ~~ -~rt Doug McMillan overcame a star studded field to place high in all the events and he not only won Class 1 with Lindsay Everleigh co-driving the Hunter, he won the race Gverall in 2:20:32. New South Wales has its State Long Course title determined over just one race meeting. This year it attracted the cream of Australia's drivers. However, Moree's Doug McMillan over-came a star studded field to drive away the victor of the Ultimate Suspension, Milbrodale Mountain Classic. The event was the NSW Off Road Long Course Champ-ionship and the course is situated 25 km south of Singleton in the heart of the Hunter Valley. It was the fourth year the race has been held and was a credit to the dedication of the Hunter Valley Off Road Racing Association. Racing takes place over two days, with each vehicle competing in three short heats, then one long heat. As usual a prologue sorted the field into order. Bridgestone's Neville Boyes led the prologue times in his Class 2 Hunter. Those following were Neil Morrison, Bruce Watman, Barry Johnson, Doug McMillan, Bob Mowbray, Terry Rose and Doug Adams. As there was no seeding there were some drivers with problems finding themselves further down the field. Last year's winner Bill· Croft was one, as gear box problem s slowed him. Race organizer Ian Hedley had electrical misfires in the Bronco, while another local, Geoff Beckett, had dutch failure. · In past years various Touring Car drivers have driven at Milbrodale. This year Kevin Waldock, fresh from an eighth at Bathurst, returned to drive Jan Hedley' s Ford Fl00 again. Kevin's weekend started badly when he launched off one of the . humps down the back straight and slammed into a tree. It was to his credit that the truck was back in running order in time for the first heat that afternoon. Leading the 2WD prologue times was Robert Pagan's Mazda Ute. Grahame Baxter's Patrol led the Production 4x4's while Fabio Zarfati was quickest modified 4x4 in his Pajero. · The racing at Milbrodale is very spectacular, mainly due to the fact• that the cars are started four-wide at once, then thirty seconds later another four take off until four groups are gone; that is the first heat. Barry Johnson's V6 Chev won the start and was never headed. Doug McMillan clocked second fastest time for the first round. Following him were Neil Morrison, then Neville Boyes and Cliff Alderton at equal fourth, Doug Adams, then another equal pair of Bill Croft and Bruce Watman. Action in round one included Lucky Mattiussi rolling his big Scout, and wheels being torn off by Howard Ford and -~-;-Jeffro Bryant in the Corvette. Tony Schafer's immaculate Hunter sadly refused to perform, and it had just been fitted with an ex-Longhurst Sierra motor. The field regrouped into order for the second round to be held on the Sunday morning. Barry Johnson was once again first home in the first heat, but the pace was quicker in the second group. Overall fastest N_eville Boyes was followed by Bill Croft. Then came Johnson, McMillan, Alderton and Bob Mowbray, pushing hard in Class 3. Neil Morrison dnf'ed having clouted a tree. Boyes meanwhile set about fixing a brake line, which had lost him rear brakes. · Round 3 was another race around the short loops. Now Johnson got the upper hand over Croft, with McMillan coming in third quickest. Mowbray was · next, then Bill Buchanan, looking like he had shaken off his bad luck of.this year. Further down, Glen Alderton did a roll over in his :f11/1t,t,1--7 Bill Buchanan and Andrew Meade drove their 1600cc two seater veryquickly also and won Class 2 in the Hunter and took third overall, merely another 19 seconds behind. · ~ Bob and Jeanette Mowbray did an incredible job in the Class 3 two seat Hunter, winning the 1200cc class by 27 seconds and placing second overall, just 47 seconds behind the winner. Class 2. Then there was a long break in the action. The field regrouped for the fourth round, which was the real test; five laps of a 21 km course, which went out to the back of the hills where it could get very rough. The order after the short rounds read: Johnson, Croft, McMillan, Watman, first Class 3, Mowbray, Buchanan, first Class 2, Adams,-Rose, Hill, Boyes, D' Ambros and Brechbuhl, driving the Michael Brooker car, rounding out the top dozen. The eight Bajas were led by Dean Mavin, then Stephen McDougall going into the long heat. In Class 5 if was indeed Waldock in the battered Fl00 leading over Grahame Smith in the Galant and Rod Kilby, Mazda Ute. Peter Wilson led Class 6 over Bryan Morrow, and Grahame Baxter was way out front in Class 7 over Whitbread, MacDonald, and Muldoon. In the modified 4x4 Class 8, Fabio Zarfati's Pajero led over Glenn Norley, who swapped seats with Ian Cotton for this race in the turbo L200. George Kirkman's VB Patrol was third over Barry Finney, having a great day in the Jeep. All surviving cars lined up to be all sent off in the Final, once again in groups of four. Johnson sank the boot in and grabbed the lead, with Croft close behind. But before long Croft's wretched luck of 1990 struck m~ e again with a blown cliff. Johnson came back into view with the Helicopter in hot pursuit, but just as he crossed the line a link pin broke, ending any chances of a win. McMillan then led on the road although it appeared Mowbray was making up ground further back. Despite constant watering, the track started to get very dusty as the leaders began to lap the slower back markers. Terry Rose, who was one of the leaders, rolled, and due to a b-1,1ckled rim fouling on the brake, could not continue. Geoff Beckett, a Class 3 pace-setter, pitted for oil, and was also running without rear brakes. Doug Adams was coming a close second in Class 2 when he made a rare mistake and hit a tree, bending a front wheel back. Neville Boyes had also clipped a tree, and ·along with broken gearbox mounts, called it a day. His Bridgestone teammate, Zarfati, pitted with two flat tires, giving the Class 8 lead to Norley, who was soon out after an oil cooler copped a rock. Kevin Waldock was leading Class 5 until the auto started playing up. A quick stop saw the oil topped up, complete with a small fire, but before long his race was over. Neil Morrison was one of the favorites to take out this event, but his bad luck continued as a rear pivot bolt broke. · There was no bad luck for Doug Mc_Millan as he still led on • Bruce and Glenn Watman drove their BRB two seater to second in Class 3 1200cc class and fourth overall, just eigth seconds out of third overall . Fabio Zarfati, with Margaret Vince co-driving the Mitsubishi Pajero, won modified 4x4 honors in the Prologue, went on from there to consistent top placings and won Class 8 in the finale taking 16th overall. The Production 4x4 Class 7 had some mechanical mishaps in the ranks, but Graham Baxter and David Coulton won the long race in their Nissan Patrol. Class 5 combines 2WD Sedans and 2WD Pickups and Ron Kilby , and Mark Knight drove the rotary powered Mazda pickup to the victory and 23rd overall. Page 31 March 1991 Dusty Times

Two did well in the race. the road and received the checkered flag. But, before very long Mowbray came in, as did Buchanan, then Watman. The winner could be any of these four, but the crowd still gathered in anticipation at the presentation trackside. It was indeed Doug McMillan and Lindsay Everleigh, in the Mazda turbo Class 1 Hunter, who were crowned the NSW Long Course Champions. Bob and Jeanette Mowbray came in only 40 seconds behind, even though they were quickest over the long loops; they obviously won the Class 3 trophy as well. A mere 20 seconds in arrears was Bill Buchanan, winning Class 2 as well, while less then ten seconds behind him was the second Class 3 of Bruce and Glenn Watman.

Al is employed as a journeyman plumber. Al began his racing career in the Good Ole Boys Class in 1980 at Brush Run 101 's track in Crandon, Wisconsin, - a hop, skip and a jump away from Al's own backyard. Ask Al, he's an honest man; a_H he wanted to do There were two Rookies of the year for 1990, and Michele Friday and Jim VanDenE/zen won the honors presented by VP Tom Schwartzburg. Greg Smith, who hails from Minnesota, won the Class 1-1600 points title and the trophy and check were presented by Mike Seefeldt, who did most of the points presentations. Dusty Times

, ~ ~ . was to try Off Road racing and became addicted! Al's thoughts at taking his first checkered flag could be summed up as, "At last! All the work has finally paid off!". It's time, according to Al, to hang up the race suit when the thrill of taking a checkered flag diminishes. The World's Champion Brush Run track is Al's favorite track, he describes it · as very challenging but not terribly hard on (racing) equipment. Al well remembers his first ride with Brad Mihalko in Brad's Class 13. Al sums up Off Road racing this way: "My favorite part of Off Road racing is the people you meet. I don't think any other sport could have a more helpful crowd of people. It's like a family. Each racer helps the other, even if they are competing in the same Class." W ell said. A relative newcomer to off road racing, John Greaves won the 2-1600 points championship, but his big thrill in 1990 was winning the Score Phoenix short course race, his first venture west. J Bill Schirm is a tong time Class 3 Jeep competitor and drove his latest CJ rig to the 1990 class championship and a bunch of individual wins. For Al there isn't anything else to watch except racing. However, if you are going to go out there and do something other than racing, Al enjoys hunting! Al's 1990 sponsors were Armstrong Tire, Wickham Plumbing and Heating, Jack May's Body Shop and Argonne Lumber. No doubt about it -Al's a Champ! Tom Hockers, Class 7S. Greenleaf, Wisconsin, is home for SODA Class 7S Points Champion Tom Hockers. When · Tom trailers his Number 700, 1990 Ford Ranger with a Gilson chassis, a 2300cc engine and yells, "Let's go racing!", he means business! Tom's livelihood as a cabinet maker, custom built, keeps him busy; but he reserves space to be one of America's Premiere Short Course Off Road Race Series' outstanding drivers. Tom began racing in 1985 at Crandon, Wisconsin. He had been a member of an Off Road T earn & Crew and decided that he wanted a part of the action behind the wheel. Tom, if he could build his own track, would design it fast and wide with well built jumps so he could enjoy that airborne feeling! Race fans will long remember with Tom his exper-ience at Oshkosh, Wisconsin's, 1990 Midwest Points Champion-ships. Tom and his machine cleared the notorious table top jump completely lap after lap after lap. Tom's first checkered flag left him feeling excited and with a great feeling of accomplishment. The feeling at taking further checkered flags is not the same for Tom as each race and each track is a little different; the competition can sometimes be fierce and other times not quite as demanding. Tom is a diverse sort of person. Get him away from work and out of his race truck and he enjoys water skiing. He mellows out by watching freestyle and aerial snow skiing. 1990's Race Season saw Tom sponsored by General Tire, The Swan Club, Clem's Corner and Automotive Supply. SODA salutes Class 7S Champion, Tom Hockers! Dave Hockers, Class 8. DePere, Wisconsin, is home for SODA's Off Road Racing Series' Class 8 Points Champion Dave Hockers. Dave and his wife Rose have two sons to keep them busy. Dave drove his way to the Class 8 Championship in a 1990 Ford F-150 truck beefed up with a 351 cubic inch Windsor motor. Dave's interest in Off Road racing began in 1976 watching friend Pete DeBaukler race at Brush Run 101 in Crandon, Wisconsin. The next year he and buddy Mike Zelton built their first Off Road machine, a Class 13. 1978 saw the duo in Class 8 racing their first race at The Lake Geneva Memorial Day 100 Off Road Event. They broke down then. But Dave has come a long Allen Fannin had a year tong struggle to secure the Class 6 points title, but at season's end Fannin got the trophy from VP Mike Seefeldt. Class 7S is growing fast in SODA racing, and Tom Hackers had to run hard to secure the 1990 points championship, but he did, driving a Ford Ranger. Dusty Times way since then. Dave loves the feeling of speed and seeing how far you can fly over the jumps. Dave's reaction at his first checkered flag was, "Finally!". Now each checkered flag has a special excitement as it takes a lot of work to keep the race truck going and in top condition. The effort put into keeping the truck in top form makes each win distinctive. The "perfect" track would have to be Crandon, Wisconsin's World's Champion Track for Dave. His racing memories include his race at Bark River in 1987. The crowd was convinced that Dave was in first place because of the incredible racing show Dave put on. When the dust settled, it was Dave in fifth place and the crowd certain that he had first! Dave knew the whole race what spot he was in. Must have been one heck of a catch up race! Jack Flannery has won at least one class every year on points in his Fords and this year it was the Class 4 championship. For 1991 Flannery is making a surprising switch to Chevrolet trucks for Classes 4 and 8. Series' Class 10 Champion, is at challenge every aspect of car and home in New Lennox, Illinois. driver.

However, in the off season, Dave does a lot of snowmobiling. Dave's 1990 sponsors were Ray's General Tire, General Tire Motorsports, LE.I. General Contractors, Tim Halbrook Home Contractors, Automotive Supply and Zelton Auto Body. They join SODA in congratulating Dave Hockers, Class 8 Points Champion. Lee Wuesthoff, Class 9. Lee Wuesthoff, SODA's Class 9 Points Champion, hails from Mequon, Wisconsin. Lee's Number 909 Chenowth Magnum has taken him to many first place finishes and is recognized by spectators and racers alike as a man and machine to be respected. Lee is employed by Concours Motors in Customer Relations and Fixed Operations. · win at seventeen years of age and is sponsored by Armstrong Tire, says it was so long ago he can't Bilstein Shocks, CNC Pedals, remember the details of how it Summers Brothers Drive Train felt.Jeff feels that each checkered Components, Marsh Racing flag gives a unique feeling so that Wheels, NGK Spark Plugs, Web not one feels quite the same as the Cam and Berrien Buggy. Lee cites his introduction into Off Roading as the 1978 Brush Run 101. At that time he was riding a 125cc motorcycle and has moved up, up and away ever since. His first checkered flag left him feeling an absolute sense of accomplishment. Each new checkered flag still feels the same for Lee. If he could hand pick the perfect track it would be the World's Champion Brush Run 101 track with more "rough stuff". His favorite racing memory? Lee definitely pin points his 1982 win at The Brush Run ' 101 in Class 9 driving a 1-1600 machine! That would be hard to forget! Lee doesn't list any particular sport he enjoys watching. He does appreciate the time to do a little hunting. Lee's 1990 sponsors were Concours Motors, Yoko-hama Tire and Castro! Motor Oil. Congratulations Class 9 SODA Champion Lee Wuesthoff!

.,.i;-.,.:t-Dave Hackers drove a new Ford F-150 to the Class 8 championship last season, and he has won a lot of races since he started in 1978. Lee Wuesthoff drove his Chenowth Magnum to the Class 9 championship with many wins last season, and Lee also does ice racing in the winter months. Jeff Probst has won a lot of races since he started off roading as a teenager, and between prepping cars he managed to win the Class 10 title in 1990. Dave '(>/ou/f is a devoted Class 11 racer, and he drives his car in both single seat and two seat classes, and he won the points in both 11 S and 11 D. ~ W oulf drove his way to a dual Class 11 and Class l lS 1990 SODA Points Champ-ionship in his B.C. Engineering chassied, 1585cc buggy. Number 1166 saw plenty of hot racing action during the eight race season. Dave and his wife Jody have a one dog family, a Doberman named Damien. This trio lives in Menasha, Wisconsin, where Dave is a printer by trade. Dave began racing at the 1981 Hodag 50 in a 2-1600 machine, and proceeded to take buggy racing seriously! Dave feels that no track is "perfect" but likes a track with a challenge. He looks for a track that is a driver's track. He remembers his first checkered flag as the ultimate high. Taking additional first place finishes basically still feels the same, according to Dave, although after a bad race the end can be a relief! Dave will never forget being first in Class and first overall at the 1988 Colorama. Any race fan who was there remembers that double achievement also. Al-though there is no thrill for Dave like auto racing, he does do a little fly fishing. If the fish aren't biting, he gets out his mountain bike and takes off. Wonder if Dave mountain bikes like he races? Dave's 1990 sponsors include BF Goodrich Tire and his wife Jody. Congratulations Double Class Champion Dave Woulf! Lowell DeGreef, Class 13. SODA's members and race fans all think of one person when the song "Sha-Boom" hits the radio. That one person is Lowell DeGreef, 1990 Class 13 SODA Champion. Lowell is from Green Bay, Wisconsin, and has two sons, Randy and Jeff. Lowell owns both Lothario's and Sba-Boom 's discos. Green Bay is also home for Lowell's brother Gary, an important part of both the Sha-Boom Team and the Ford chassied, 454 cubic inch Chevy powered, Number 1350 Sha-Boom race machine! Lowell extends his special thanks to his brother Gary, "who's my partner and built the car and maintains it. He deserves two-thirds of the credit. He's a wonderful brother and friend and one hell of a mechanic.'' Lowell caught Off Road Fever driving the 1986 Good Ole Boys Class at Crandon, Wisconsin. After a shot at the GOB Class, Lowell and brother Gary built Class 13's Sha-Boom. Taking the checkered flag has never changed for Lowell; each time it's a tremendous high. In fact, it's the kind of high that keeps Lowell up for hours after the race is over! Lowell, and most likely Gary too, will never forget 1990's Brush Run 101. The powerful Class 13 blew its 454 Chevy engine on Friday leaving the Sha-Boom Team no choice but to load up and head back to Green Bay.

Lowell relaxes in front of the television watching a football game. He plays racquet ball and lifts weights for recreation outside of racing. Geoff Dorr, Class 14. Geoff Dorr races the SODA Circuit out of Rockford, Illinois, where he is at home with his wife Ginny and son Mitchell. Geoff works as a Construction Administrator. Geoff's Number 417 Jeep Pickup with the big401 cubic inch engine under the hood is a familiar sight to race fans everywhere. Geoff began Off Road racing in 1965. At that time he was racing motorcycle enduros and has graduated to be one of the top names in Midwest Off Road racing. Geoff's first checkered flag left him thinking, "WOW!!! I did it, I like it, let's do some more!" Geoff's racing record speaks louder than words, he and his machine are outstanding. After many racing victories, the fun is still there but now the money has become important also. Let Geoff design his own track and he'd make it a "driver's track". That track would be challenging, one that would give a good race with many turns and jumps. 1985 and 1986 were definitely memory years for Geoff. He won Class 3 at Riverside, California, both years. Kudos to Geoff Dorr on his Class 14 SODA Points Championship win! Geoff's 1990 sponsors were BFGoodrich -Team TIA, Art Carr, Marden Distributors and Cam Two. Greg Smith, Class 1-1600. SODA'sClass 1-1600Champion, Greg Smith, lives in Minnetonka, Minnesota, with his wife Rhonda and children Sean, Spencer and Staci. Greg owns Smith Motor Import Supply Company. Greg has carved out a name for himself in his 1600cc Number 792, Taylor chassied buggy as an aggressive, competitive and courteous driver. · Greg goes back to 1978 for the beginning of his Off Roading experience when he was working for Dune Buggy Supply and Co-Driving with Mike McKay. When he got behind the wheel of his own machine and took that first win he describes it as "unbeliev-able" and "outrageous"! Even better, Greg still gets that same outrageous feeling each time he takes another checkered flag. Greg must spend a great deal of his racing season feeling "outrageous"! Defining his idea of a "perfect" race track is hard for Greg but he relates that the tracks at Crandon, Wisconsin, Bark River, Michigan and Antigo, Wisconsin, come awfully close. Crandon's track holds memories for Greg as he took W arid Championships in 1988, 1989 and 1990. A large part of that enjoyment is due to his wife Rhonda also winning Championships in her Class. Greg enjoys watching a good football game or a golf match. He plays racquet ball and does some snowmobiling. This guy is into darn near everything! Greg's 1990 sponsors were General Tire, Ross Wheel, Dune Buggy Supply, Justice Brothers Auto Chemicals and Hooker Headers. SODA joins Greg's sponsors in saying Congratula-tions Class 1-1600 Champion! John Greaves, Class 2-1600. Whether you call him John, Scooter or Airborne, John Greaves is a Champion kind of guy! John lives in DePere, Wisconsin, with his wife Kathy and two dogs (Clyde & Wilbur), who act like kids! Just wait John and Kathy, dogs are easy. John works at assembling and installing windows and doors. John drove his way to the SODA Class 2-1600 Championship in his Number 637, Taylor chassied, 1600cc engined buggy.

at Brush Run 101 will never forget it! John left professional Motocross in 1987 with a tough decision to go OffRoading buggy style. John remembers his first race: Lake Geneva, with almost everyone lapping him. John has come a 1-o-n-g way! John's first checkered flag left him light-headed and close to collapse with excitement. John sums up the thrill of victory, "I was lucky enough to take it ( checkered flag) a bunch of times this year but every time still feels like the first time." Winning the World Championship in Phoenix, Arizona, put John in shock for a week! He was also very pleased with a come from behind win in the Limited Championship at Crandon, Wisconsin. John gives Bark River, Mich-igan, the thumbs up as close to a perfect track. He likes the different types of terrain and he enjoys this track when it gets rough." Airborne" Greaves enjoys watching football and shoots a mean game of pool. John's 1990 sponsors were Ray's General Tire, Ron Micke and Stock Lumber. John wishes to extend special thanks to Lee Ellis and his family at Ray's General Tire, " ... my success in 1990wouldn't have been possible without him." Congratulations to John Greaves, Class 2-1600 SODA Points Champion! Terry Wolfe, Class 5-1600. The bright yellow paint on a Volkswagen Sedan, highlighted with the lightning bolt, running a 1600cc engine and numbered 579 can only be Class 5-1600 SODA Points Champion Terry Wolfe. Terry is married to Karen Wolfe, the two (known as Boris and Natasha to a select few), have devoted much time and effort to SODA. Terry has a son Randy, and a daughter Kerri. He is an Independent Insurance Agent. Terry made his debut in Off Road racing in 1983 when he partnered with his brother in a 5-1600 machine at Fountain City, Wisconsin. Once Terry put together his own machine that first checkered flag was hard to believe, thrilling and tiring. The thrill is still there because of the high caliber of the drivers in SODA''s Class 5-1600 and what it means to pull out a win over this quality of competition. Terry's "perfect" track was the one designed by Brush Run 101 for the 1988 World's Champion-ship Race. Nothing tops his racing memories like the win he took at the Lake Geneva Memorial Day 100 in 1987. Terry was driving a brand new car and had had no sleep the night before the race. Terry enjoys watching all sports. Aside from racing, Terry enjoys bowling. Terry is self-sponsored. He races on Arm-I Geoff Dorr has always been a Jeep man, switched from CJs to pickups and drove his modified Honcho this past year to the Class 14 championship. There are so many ladies driving Class 11 cars that they have their own class. Paula Parsons won a lot of races and took the Women's Limited Buggy title. strong tires. SODA salutes Class Rhonda Smith Women's 5-1600 Points Champion Terry Buggy Women's Buggy Point's Wolfe. Champion Rhonda Smith des-Paula Parsons, Women's Class 11. Women's Class 11 Points Champion Paula Parsons must have been born with "mud in her blood"! When she hits the track in her Number 1199, Friday chassied, 1600cc powered buggy the competition had best be ready. It doesn't make any difference whether you call her PP, Paula or Blondie, this secretary knows how to Off Road race. She and her husband Darrin live in North Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Paula and Darrin had their first Off Roaa experience at Crandon, Wisconsin, in 1987. Darrin hooked his first ride and the dynamic duo were done in with Off Road fever. They purchased their own buggy then. As Paula would tell you, "It's fun and it's exciting!" Taking that first checkered flag was overwhelming and exciting for Paula and each subsequent checkered flag feels just as thrilling. 1987 was a good year for Paula, she had her own buggy and took her first checkered flag that same year in Antigo, Wisconsin. Seems Paula just can't leave racing alone. She enjoys watching NASCAR racing. If that isn't enough, the "off" season finds Paula snowmobile racing. Paula's 1990 sponsors were Ziebart of Fond du Lac, Friday's Off Road Center and Ray's General Tire. Congratulations Paula Parsons, Women's Class 11 SODA Points Champion! cribes herself as a wife, mother and race car driver, and she is very good at all of these roles! Rhonda took the 1990 Women's Buggy Championship in a Taylor chassied, 1600 cc engined buggy numbered 792. Sound familiar? Her husband Greg took his Class Championship in the same machine. Rhonda and Greg have three children, Sean, Spencer and Staci. They make their home in Minnetonka, Minnesota. Rhonda quite literally married into Off Road racing. After her wedding in 1981, the new bride and the groom were on their way to an Off Road Event at Cedar Lake Speedway, Somerset, Wisconsin. At taking her first victory, Rhonda felt a sense of accomplishment and, "Hey, I want to do that again!". As a matter of fact, after each win Rhonda is ready to go out there and drive another race, right away! Rhonda looks at the idea of a "perfect" race track in a different way. She describes it as a place with friends, fans and beautiful weather. No one should be without this combination! Rhonda's lasting racing memory is when she and her husband both won World Championship Titles, each in their own Class, in the same year. Sport watching? For Rhonda it's a tie between football and watching her children participate in their own sports events. When it comes to her own sports action, the off season finds Rhonda doing some downhill skiing! Rhonda was sponsored in 1990 by General Tire, Ross Wheel Service, Dune Buggy Supply, Justice Brothers Auto Chemicals and Hooker Headers. Rhonda Smith, SODA's Women's Buggy Class Champion -the lady is a Champ! Elected to another term as President of SODA, Class 5-1600 champion Terry Wolfe didn't stop moving long enough to get his picture taken at the awards, but we do have this shot of Terry and his Bug at the track. Nancy Vanden Heuvell, Women's Heavy Metal. With a field of very serious competitors, Nancy Vanden Heuvell took the SODA Women's Heavy Metal Championship in her Ford F-150, with a 350 cubic inch engine Dusty Times March 1991 Rhonda Smith is the quickest of lady drivers, and, driving the family 1600, she easily won the Women's Unlimited Buggy title in 1990. Nancy Vanden Heuve/1 drove a big Ford F-150 pickup in the Women's Heavy Metal action in 1990, and she drove it right into the class championship. under the hood of her Class 13 race machine. Nancy and her husband Dan have two children, Dan and Mike. They live in Appleton, Wisconsin. Nancy's first checkered flag at DePere in 1989 filled her with disbelief! Taking further wins made Nancy feel better than her first win as there are now more competitors in her Class. That word "chicken" fired up Nancy into Off Road racing, particularly when it came from friends. She 1 sure isn't "chicken" but her first race was also her most embarrass-ing race! We go back to Antigo, Wisconsin, 1989. Nancy was driving a friend's race vehicle and, finding the throttle stuck wide open and the brakes gone, she didn't know how to stop. Nancy wound up taking a portion of Antigo's white fence home with her. She also remembers her flip and roll over at Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the Midwest Points Championship Race Event. Nancy, you've come a long way! Nancy enjoys watching pro-fessional football and is an active hiker and snowmobile enthusiast. Nancy wishes to thank her husband Dan for his support and endless hours of work on thei.t: race truck for without his help, she would would be unable to race at all. 1990 sponsors for Nancy were Klusendorf Chiropractic, Bat-teries Unlimited, Appleton Auto Wrecking and Flanagan's Stop & Shop.

Land Rover team Halt'Up boss Pascal Vigneron wondered how Vatanen would react to lckx, the only person who has ever pushed Ari before. He also mused whether at the end of the event the Citroens and Mitsubishis would eliminate each other and leave the Lada plodding on to victory. The live axle Land Rovers are out of the top frame, so far off pace that they are now involved in T2 competition, which means the engine kept to Group A level of modification and the bodywork must look like normal. New is the cantilever suspension. Rover's competition in T2 was Mitsubishi and Nissan's Terranos. In Tl Toyota were the most serious with both new version Land Cruisers and old version Four Runners with Nissan Terranos as their opposition. Nissan Spain produced their vintage looking Patrols, solid cars with strong 315 bhp engines. The traditional Paris-Dakar specials were abund-ant as usual. Even World Group C Champion Jean-Louis Sch lesser had boldly appeared with a two wheel drive buggy. The terrible old British built Metro 6R4 was there again, and it broke its transmission on the start line of the Prologue and never got to Africa. The Japanese motorcycle racer Katayama had a Terrano clothed with a Pulsar body, and interesting, once a year cars, lovingly built by amateurs, were everywhere. The event itself was externally similar to before but with many important changes in objectives. Navigation in the sandy desert was to be one special theme of the year. Not only did FISA's instruction to lop two or three days off the event force the organizers into straight line routes, but there were to be four two day marathon sections where cars were locked away, rally style, into pare fermes overnight. It meant that open pare all night servicing was limited to ten nights March 1991 Hubert Auria/ won this event riding a bike a few years back, and this round he and Philippe Monet were with the leaders driving the Lada Samara. ;~i';k ~ Jean Bouchet and Jean-Luc Leran drove the Nissan Terrano right into the lead in Group Tl, and at last report they were still leading the class. rather than the 16 or I 7 as before. By this ploy organizer Gilbert Sabine also successfully elimi-nated a huge amount of the non-competitive asphalt surface liaison sections. The traditional prologue on French soil this year was held on gravel at Clermont Ferrand on December 30, rather than in the mud near Paris. Ari Vatanen showed his true spirit by making best time, seven seconds faster than Paris-Dakar novice Kenneth Eriksson, Pajero. Patrick Tambay created the fun for the crowds this year, tipping his Lada on its roof when part of his jacking system became detached inside the car 'and fell on the pedals. "It wasn't serious to the car, only cosmetic damage", said the former Formula I driver, or serious to his time, still 11th fastest. The times only counted for the re-start order on the first desert section in Libya. For Tambay it was a good omen, for twice Ari Vatanen had done a mischief on the Prologue -and won! The spectators swarmed over the barriers to watch the action, but happily the speeds were slow over the mickey-mouse course. Clay Regazzoni never got there, the head gasket on his Mercedes having failed just outside Paris. So, in T3 Vatanen's Citroen beat I. !t. Eriksson's Mitsubishi, with Ladas sixth and eighth. In T2 Erwin Weber's Mitsubishi beat Servia's Range Rover by a second. In Tl De Lavergne's private Range Rover beat, by one second, Ratet's Toyota that was equal with Gaviot's Nissan. The scene was set for the start of the real action in Africa, four days later. There was a busy evening New Year's Day as the work of unloading all the competing bikes, cars, trucks and officials' vehicles at Tripoli was carried out in preparation for the first. section, January 2, 3 and 4 from Tripoli to Ghadames then to Ghat. It was a short night for many before the easy 594 km main road drive up to Ghadames, which the leading crews covered in some four and a half hours over empty but well kept roads. The action started on Thursday, 3 January with the first half of the first marathon. At Ghadames British driver Dick Partridge tried to repair the gearbox of his Isuzu Trooper, found it was beyond his efforts, and reassembled it without second gear. Finnish rallycross driver Matti Alamaki got to Ghat after a lucky moment. He had run out of fuel going to ldri; when waiting for fuel he noticed the front differential had come loose and lost its oil. If he [¾1 ~--¾";,.. .

Sports Car World Champion in Group C, Jean-Loues Schlesser with Jean Da Silva did quite well after the first day, but lost the service truck and had to retire at Ghat. · Former Formula 1 star Patrick Tambay, with Dominique Lemoyne navigating the Lada, had myriad mechanical woes, got stuck in the sand but carried on after this full service. The big trucks were back this year, and Jacques Ho.uisat wheels his Per/ini 4x4 F105 past a small but interested group of spectators near an oasis. overall lead. Sarrazin's Toyota was up to second in Tl but almost a half hour behind the flying Bouchet. Weber's Mitsubishi mate Masuoka was stuck with a broken gearbox waiting for a repair truck. Schlesser arrived at Ghat but did not restart; he had lost an hour the first day, then was .._ struck down with an electronic -,,/ ,.,. .._# .;. .. '' .... ,;..:~.... -~~ ,, • fault.

The section from Ghat to Tumu was not only the longest of the whole event, but it was, in places, incredibly rough. For one stretch of 30 km or so the cars had to crawl over stones at walking speed. Whereas the motorcycles with their Michelin "bib mousse" tire inserts stormed over the rough stretches, the cars could take no liberties. Vatanen stayed first car on the road for two-thirds of the day before taking a wrong track in a flat plain with thousands of tracks to choose from. It was a surprise when Auriol was the first car to reach the bleak border post that is Tumu. "It really was a nice day of rallying", the Finn said, although the lead had gone to his colleag4e lckx who said, "Actually, I think I had been going too slowly, but at least I didn't have any flats." Ari, on the other hand, had two. Waldegard was astonished at the stones over which he had to drive, and found the fuel consumption was getting so bad, 70 liters per 100 km, worse than four miles per Imperial gallon, that he eased off, until faster stretches restored normal consumption later on. Like at Ghat many crews curiously took wrong turnings near the finish, and one wondered whether, if top crews could do this in the remaining minutes of daylight, how many hours would be lost as crews started arriving after dark. hadn't stopped the car would have been stranded in the middle of the marathon section. Vatanen almost missed it all. At 0755 he awoke with a nagging feeling, he was due to start the stage some 20 km away at 0830! Happily he made it in time, but he had an unsettled day, reaching the midway night halt at Idri in third place, five miputes behind the leader, his teammate lckx. Tambay's Prologue theory took a knock when he lost a front wheel which had not been fastened correctly, and which, with two subsequent punctures, cost him two and a half hours. Lada's fortunes were worsened when Hubert Auriol had clutch trouble. Kenneth Eriksson lost front drive shortly after the start, and he also had two flats, leading to a tactical ploy at the entrance to pare ferme at ldri when trouble free Mitsubishi teammate Pierre Lartigue left a spare wheel casually between the end of the stage and the closed pare. It was so casual that it disappeared before the Swede arrived. Bouchet was running away with the Tl category, his Nissan Terrano nearly 20 minutes in front of the best placed Toyota, third placed Sarrazin:. Toyota had many problems with Vergnaud's car with transmission trouble caused by a broken rubber gaiter, no alternator or power steering, while Bulto's Range Rover had a broken shock and Raymondis had suspension failure and lost a lot of time. It had been unusual enough to see the heavily laden cars, almost two tons what with 3 or 4 spare wheels and 400 liters of fuel, waddling to the start that morning, but the Friday morning saw cars denied overnight servicing hobbling off for the next 500 km of high speed action. Ickx lost his initiative when his Citroen started jumping out of gear and Vatanen swept through to lead on the road and on the rally. Ickx was also perplexed when his car suddenly started going faster; he found his roof mounted spare Dusty Times wheel had flown off the car. Shinozuka and Fontenay got lost and followed each other to the finish at Ghat. Eriksson's Mitsubishi lost its remaining two wheel drive, but fast service driver Thomasse got him going again, and the Ladas had more fun. Auriol stopped in sand and Tamhay pulled him out; then Tambay's starter failed and Auriol tried to push him from behind, but with clutch trouble he couldn't actually stop. After trying to ram his teammate up the back he gave up and a privateer got the Formula 1 star going once more. Riviere lost an hour with alternator trouble, so the Russian cars weren't plodding along quite as well as expected. Formula 3000 driver Paul Belmondo made best time in T2 though Weber kept the Ari Vatanen is a long way from retiring, and especially likes this event, and he was leading as he took this beer break at a rare but welcome rest stop. ·•-Bjorn Waldengard, with Fred Gallagher navigating the Citroen, had a wide variety of problems slowing them but still ran in the top five most of the distance. -~,:qi!':. --6J~.: ,.__,_ > Fred Gallagher, right, and Bruno Berglund compare navigation notes at the start of a marathon day, plotting to keep the Citroens out front.

This streamlined creation ran with the big trucks and the Proto Volvo C303 was driven through the desert by ·G. Carlo Arcangioli. There is no doubt that this massive Tatra 4x4 T815sc has a diesel engine as it blows black smoke into the desert. The driver is Karel Loprais. Even defending champions check their own tires, and here Ari Vatanen makes sure his Citroen's Miehe/ins are just right for the section ahead . . ,/,.;,, ~ ,;,:; " ,,; A long time veteran of desert racing, Guy Co/soul, with Alain Lopes co-driving the Mitsubishi PX33, usually goes all the way and finishes well. Matti Alamaki and Harry Harkimo ran well in the Toyota HOBO, and Matti, a Finnish rallycross driver, got to Ghat after running out of gas in the middle of nowhere. Shades of the 1960 glass buggies, this vehicle, driven by Marc Joineau, is called a Proto Buggy 4x2, but there was no report on its progress. All through the night and well after the cars started to leave on Sunday morning, 6 January, on the Tumu-Dirkou leg, the cars and trucks kept rolling into Tumu. Jacky Ickx looked on in dismay. "This will do more to eliminate the privateers than anything, despite Gilbert Sabine's hopes to the contrary. Even if they arrive all right, many of them will lose their trucks". After three days' rallying, the first privateer was some seven hours behind the leaders, and news came of the usual accidents, but just one, a medical doctor with a fractured skull, was flown to Paris. There had been a lot of flat tires on Saturday, and it was announced that the third Lada had been excluded for taking parts to mend a broken engine pulley from a retired competitor, rather than wait for his own service truck to leave pare ferme; against the rules. Shinozuka bent a sump guard and had to stop and repair this as the driveshaft was fouled, his teammate Fontenav was stuck in sand with 2WD after the front differential support failed, while Masuoka had a ten hour penalty after his gearbox trouble. The remaining Ladas were catching up lost time, but Colsoul 's PX33 lost over three hours when it ran out offuel. Weber was still leading T2 but Seppi's Nissan passed Jose Servia to second place, the latter having fuel pump failure three times. Bouchet was now two hours ahead in Tl. It had been a . slow day, an 82kph top average. · TI1e fifth day, January 7, of real rallying saw trouble for many on the run from Dirkou to Gos-sololom. At the start on the vast · open plain at Dirkou that is the edge of the Tenere desert, Jean Bouchet arrived early, ready to consolidate his Tl advantage. Nissan France were one of the few teams not running Michelins; their Dunlops were proving very strong. "Still no punctures so far, last year we had none all event."

Although Mitsubishis finished the day 1-2, the story was that Citroen lost the challenge of their closest rival Lartigue and arrived at the mid-desert bivouac at Gossololom in the south of Tenere lying 1-2-3 overaU. Although it had been the shortest and probably the easiest day so far there were dunes around the old salt mining oasis at Fachi. Vatenen said the dunes were deceptive. Shinozuka, who made second best time, said some were very dangerous; Mitsubishi driver Fontenay said they caused him to feel sea-sick. Lartigue lost 4½ hours when an oil pipe became detached and his gearbox broke. He got going after his service truck arrived. Tambay had transmission trouble and got stuck, eventually restarted after getting the shovels and sand boards out, but he was worried whether the remaining transmission would last. Waldegard was reported stopped for a while and lckx arrived saying his engine was still overheating. In T2 there were dramas when Weber stopped reportedly with axle trouble. On January 8 the start of the second part of the second marathon ran from Gossololom to Agadez. Citroen's closest rival, Auriol's Lada, was only an hour, 18 minutes behind. It was still quite a race. The 1-2-3 of the yellow cars did not indicate a monopoly, but by that evening the situation was changed drastically. Although Fontenay now had his Mitsubishi in third place he was nearly two hours behind, and psychologically the French constructor could feel much easier. The Japanese suffered a bad blow when · Shinozuka crashed end over end down a dune, the car too badly damaged _to continue and co-driver Henri Magne was evacuated with concussion, which eventually became two big black eyes. Vatanen was quickest on the da¥, "It was made easier because the spare wheel fell off and I could go quicker". Auriol lost three hours when all four front shock March 1991 }his fancy device is called the GPS Navigation system, _to be evaluated for use in rally raids. Wonder how it will do in the dust or in a sudden tumble off a ravine or in the dunes. Normally seen on World Championship rallies, Kenneth Eriksson and co-driver Staffan Parmander adapted well to the desert, and here make a quick tire change on the Mitsubishi Pajero. absorbers broke. Waldegard was struggling with no power steering, and this made it difficult to judge his speed in tricky circumstances. Twice he got stuck, getting rescued by Ambrosino's fast . service car. Ickx's engine was now OK but also explained it was difficult to get the right rhythm over the dunes. "We were following_ Fontenay, letting him discover the nasty surprises, and anyway I have decided not to challenge Ari for the lead. We are waiting for the crazy Finn to crash and let us through." There was no hint of team orders as PSA competition boss was ba~k in Paris, but publicly Ickx was supporting Ari. "Our priorjty is to think of the team, and because of surviving that cam belt failure, it is a miracle still t0-be in the ra~e at all." Mitsubishi weren't licking their wounds just yet, and announced they knew their failure reasons and were going to attack and keep up the pressure. In T2 Seppi's Nissan was over Servia Junior's Range Rover. Although five hours ahead in the Diesel category, the Toyotas were struggling in Tl where Bouchet's Nissan was over two hours in front of Sarrazin. Normally the Paris Dakar switches off at Agadez, but this year one sensed the event still had something to offer. However, at press time we learned Ari V.atanen and Citroen had won overall.

~ •• OFF-ROAD RA€1NG TEAM-'The Str~ight Poop From The Big Wahzoo' CHECKERS BANQUET -Checking out a new location this year, the Club gathered at the Porter Valley Country Club in Northridge for our Annual Awards Dinner. A good crowd settled in for a steak dinner that was considered excellent when compared to last year's infamous 'Turkey de Bu rack'. Kassanyi served as Master of Ceremonies of the banquet this year, after · boycotting last year's affair, and he obviously took advantage of his absence to make this year's Dr. Checker Awards better than ever. A couple of the highlights were a special coco loco award, that included an appropriate comatose p ho to , that -was p resented to U ncle Max. A nother included some hi-technology as an impres-sive dash mounted gadget was presented to Sugar that sup-posedly when hooked up to Chuck's catheter set-up would recycle any liquid into a 90 proof drinkable mixture. Still another was a special promoters award given to Peralta that took the form of a dart board with Steve's ex-employer's face as the bulls-eye (more on that subject later). These, as with all the other Dr. Checker Awards, were well understood by all the recipients if not by everyone else in attendance. The Appreciation Awards presented to last year's Officers will be repeated next year to a large degree as Clarence Carter, Howard Anderson and Steve Burack were all re-elected for 1991 as President, Vice President and Treasurer respectively. The only change will be the addition of Saul Zambrano as our new Secretary. Congratulations and good luck to our 1991 Club Officers. As he has done in recent years, Peralta once again presented his 'Butt Head of the Year Award'. And as usual he took plenty of time naming all those Checker members that were close runner-ups before he presented both Utgard and Hibbard with his specia I toilet seat awards as 1990s · Checker Butt Heads! Lou ex-plained that the reason for his choice was that these two fools were happily rolling along, racing and pitting and having a lot of fun, until they decided to try their hand at big time race promotions. As an active promoter in the thick of the battle, Lou surely has a very clear picture of the numerous headaches and hassles these once happy-go-lucky Checkers repeat-ed I y encountered during the promotion of their Willow Springs Race. Not surprisingly there was some discussion around the bar that a little jealousy might have been involved in Lou's selection this year, since Bob and Jeff' s first attempt at race promotion far overshadowed anything Peralta has accomplished to date! The Club honored the following Checker members for their accomplishments in 1990: The 'Pitter of the Year' title was awarded to Gary Lane for his significant contribution during the year, along with 'Pit Captain of the Year' awards, not surpris-ingly, going to both Big John Files Dustvnma and Keith Dennis. The 'Rookie of the Year' title went to Mike Harman for his success with his Class 10 car and Saul Zambrano was named 'Driver of the Year' in recognition of his six straight SCORE/HDRA points race victories and the Class 11 Points Championship. Doug Brown was also recognized for his dedicated year of service in maintaining the Clubs pit equipment. The Club's highest award was presented to honor one member's continuous service to the Club over the last 15 years. Our 1990 'Checker Man of the Year' went to Steve Burack who has served as the Club's treasurer for as long as. most of us ~n remember. Congratulations Guys! This was a typical Checker Awards Banquet that went off smoothly with the possible exception of a small insurrection that quickly convinced the management that the bar will not be allowed to close at 11 :30 and, as usual, a good time was had by all! PARKER RACE -Well, Melancon finally got back at the o l' W ahzoo this race. If you remember, Willie was banished from this column a while back after· he mistakenly accused one member of being the W ahzoo and proceeded to threaten him with bodily harm over something written in this column that he considered an insult to his sponsor. But with a 1st place finish in his Class 1-2-1600 car it would be extremely unChecker-like for the W ahzoo not to acknowlegde his imp~essive 17 minute victory over the next car in one of the most competitive classes in the sport. Willie Melancon -1st place in Class 1-2-1600. Congratulations on a great race! It could have even been called a flawless race if it weren't for a couple of 'small' items that were brought to Willie's attention at the post-race Wednesday night meeting. It seems that not only was he caught not running the required blue light on his car during the race, but The Mouth' also committed a major Club.sin by forgetting to thank his Checker buds while accepting his trophy at the awards. Hey Willie, it hasn't been THAT long since you've been to one of those ceremonies, has it? Our other Checker cars finished as follows: The Cook's were on the losing end of a tight battle this time around in Class 5-1600 when a flat tire at the ~ong time dropped them back into second place. Zambrano/ Anderson were third in Class 11 after getting stuck in the silt. Chase/Urquhart were up near the front until they broke an axle on the last lap, fixed it and ended up eighth. Also in Class 1/2, Hymes had his problems and finished 12th. Both· Sumners and Silvas followed Willie to the finish line in 8th and 14th respectively. Our non-finishers included Symonds who broke his front suspension on his Class 10 car on the last lap and Greenw.ay who also only made two laps after breaking .a spindle early and running out of time after fixing it. Sadly, two Checkers were injured at this race but early reports indicated that both of them should recover completely. George Seeley hit a tree on lap 1 while leading.Class 5 and broke his shoulder and some ribs, and. David Kreisler broke an arm and suffered nasty facial cuts in a collision with Koch's car prior to the race. Get well guys and I suggest that ya get your plaster 'checkered' before your first Wednesday night appearance. More details on Checker heroics at Parker next month. . Over the last few years one member, above all others, has probably been subject to more verbal abuse and intense interro-·gation than any other member in the long history of the Club. When Kassanyi joined Score abou_t six years ago it was always assumed by many that Steve was simply on loan and still a true Checker at heart. And when, at a recent meeting, Steve announced that he had ended his long relationship with Score almost all our members expressed a sigh of relief. In the last year or so it had appeared to m any that Dr. Checker had gotten himself into the difficult position of having to represent Score without being let in on all the facts by his employer. This was obvious on a number of occasions when some members p ressing him on one issue or another seemed to have a lot more information on the subjects in question than Steve did. Yet admirably Dr. Checker maintained his dignity throughout it all and the Wahzoo, on behalf of most of our members, would ljke to say "Welcome back Steve, you've been gone too long". Not surprisingly, Kassanyi's split with Score was not all peaches and cream and consequently he will surely be the featured speaker around many a Checker campfire in the near future undoubtedly pressed to give us the straight poop on dozens of past racing incidents that the Club was involved in. Noi: surprisingly my comments in the January issue regarding the problems down at the Baja 1000 not only ruffled a few feathers but also stirred up a lot more interest in the identity of the Wahzoo. One person who has been grilling a number of Checkers about my identity is none other than the head ringmaster over at HORA. Hey Danny you're just wasting your time, most Checkers don't know who the W ahzoo is and those that do would NEVER sell me out - especially to a promoter! During the Parker Race one of the top Class 8 drivers was foolish enough to leave his broken factory truck at one of our outlying pits for safe keeping when his helicopter quickly arrived to airlift him back to town, obviously interested in getting back to his sponsors hospitality tent before all the wine and finger food was gone. Not surprisingly a discussion quickly erupted regarding whether or not is was proper for this non-Checker vehicle to be parked under our supervision in a Checker pit. This dilemma was just as quickly solved when George Thompson produced a fist full of Checker stickers and the truck was thoroughly and properly designated as a 'Temp-orary Checker Vehicle'. The next big race is The Mint, with all the activity moving back downtown again. Lets all hope that the low turnout at Parker is not a sign of things to come with this slow economy. At Parker this was the first time that this Checker can remember when the racers were actually out numbered by the indians! · FINAL NOTE~ Prince recently kicked off his Candy Cane Campaign for a seat on the Los Angeles City Council. Giv'em hell Walter!! CORENOTES By Hilly Smith CORE has a new Board of Directors for 1991 in place led by new President Tom Mattingly. Mark Minasian is Vice President, and Krissy Von is the Treasurer while your correspondent Hilly Smith is the Secretary. Karen Clark is back as Race Director, and Driver Representatives are Joel Stankavich and Toby Carlson. J.D. Ward is Sgt. at Arms and the Entertainment Director is Alisa Trimble. CORE had a few drivers in the Baja 1000. Roy and Wade Prince won second place at the race and were second overall in 1990 series points in the Challenger Class. They wish to thank everyone in CORE for all their help and support this ·year. The Conejo Ford pickup driven by Mike Schwellinger and Bill Holmes finished in second place in Class 4 and Mike ended up third overall for the year in class on points, only five points out of second place. Bill Poe and John Hagle finished third in Class 10 at the Baja 1000, but Poe didn't figure in the points chase this year. Two weeks after the Baja 1000 the La Rana High Desert 150 drew a healthy entry to the Lucerne Valley. CORE had several members competing in the Challeng<;:r Class, which Jim Clements won. Robert Kleber finished fourth in the class even though he rolled, but Terry Jeffers broke, apparently beyond hope of repair. The La Rana races are popular with CORE's extensive membership that lives in the high desert around the Victor Valley and Barstow. At the December meeting seven members had signed on for the La Rana New Year's 200, which makes more than enough to make it a CORE official race for pitting TI1e first of December some CORE members took to the southern Nevada desert to compete in the SNORE Showboat 250. It wasn't a good· day for drivers named Trimble. Jefr I Trimble had an early flat tire, then · his motor seized on the second lap. Larry Trimble had serious electrical problems but still took fifth place. Dan Araujo placed fourth in Class 10 after losing the roof off his race car. Kevin McGillivray and Don Angel started last in Class 10 out of five cars, Donnie drove first, got banged around against the roll cage, then the power steering belt came off and the alternator light came on. He replaced that and went three laps. Kevin drove the last two laps and, with only two miles to go on the last lap, the engine seized. They still took second in class. Need action photos?, Call us !
