At the Gold Coast 300 Pat Dean drove Michael Gaughan's state of the art Class 2 Porsche/Chenowth to a resounding win in Class 112, and he was second overall, missing the top spot by just one minute. Photo by Moses Jursz of Trackside Photo Inc. Brendan Gaughan got this Chenowth with a VW Class 10 motor for his 16th birthday, and this year he and fellow 17 year old J.C. Dean, Pat's younger brother, have been leading their class on points in the SNORE Series. Late in July, they won the SNORE Midnight Special overall with Gaughan doing most of the driving due to Dean's wrist, injured at Barstow. All three drivers are second generation off road racers.

Compc!Jtion byReeseKingRcvicw Board The Competition Review Board for the 1993 Soutar Motors/Budweiser SCORE Fireworks 250 met at 7:00 p.m. race day at ]Ts Opry Hall & Saloon in downtown Barstow. Tom Mattingly was the Board Administrator from the CORE pit team, Board members includ-ed Bob Gordon Class l /2, Walker Evans Class 1 / 2, Gregg Symonds Class 10, Jack Johnson, Class 7, Bill Wick of SCORE Officials Assoc., SCORE Presid-ent Danny Cau and Reese King CRB Marshal. With seven cases to be heard before the 9:00 p.m. awards ceremony, time was of the essence, especially when Cau informed me the band would begin playing at 8:00 p.m. When the band began tuning up, time became unimportant, normal conversation was near impossible and my tape recording of the meeting was unintelligible. No doubt SCORE's intent was to provide a convenient location for the CRB and it was. However, to ask this Board to make difficult decisions in difficult surround-ings removes the professionalism and dignity that they require and deserve. Communication Breakdown -In what will probably go down as the most controversial case ever, entry 108, Simon and Simon, was protested by SCORE officials for failure to stop at checkpoint 1. As soon as this truck crossed the finish line representatives from Ford Rough Riders and BFGood-rich were inquiring what would happen,if the protest was upheld. I told Madeline Bullman of the Rough Riders team that a precedent had been established at the Parker 400 of a one position penalty for this violation. There four competitors including factory drivers Walker Evans and Mike Lesle were penalized one position for not stopping at checkpoints and a fifth competi-tor was disqualified for racing through a checkpoint. When the meeting was called to order I informed the Board that most of the cases before us would be for failure to stop at check-points and the finish line, and reminded them of the Parker decisions. Walker Evans and· Rough Rider Jack Johnson were excluded from this case. SCORE checkpoint captain Bob Kruger appeared before the Board and related a simple and straight-forward account of the incident. The Ford entered the checkpoint, slowed but did not come to a stop ,. and the green light was never activated. In Kruger's own words, "It was a rolling California stop." Paul Simon, driver of record, and Dave Simon, driver at the time of the alleged violation, were called before the Board and related the following account. "We came into check 1 and were anticipating coming to a dead stop. The green light was down low, right around the corner at the stop sign and we couldn't see the green light. I looked over at the officials under the tent and got a motion to proceed. So that's why we did." Dave went on to state that he later returned to the checkpoint and asked the officials if they had signaled him to continue. The first two he talked with replied, "No, they had not." A third stated he had waved to him. Doesn't this sound confus-ing? Even with the signal lamp and a long pole stop sign system, apparently visibility, sign and lamp placement are not always ideal. The bottom line was Dave Simon did not stop at checkpoint 1. As deliberations began, the Board members were very concerned with the information that Simon had been "waved on" by an official. Eventually they dismissed this defense and agreed that regardless of whether he was signaled or not, he did not stop. The protest against Sim.on & Simon was upheld, but big problems surfaced during the penalty phase of the hearing. The voting members in this case Gordon, Mattingly and Symonds supported two distinct argu-ments. First, that the penalties levied at Parker were too severe, and second that the current Board should not be compelled to abide by decisions and/ or penalties (310) 598-2731 WEddLE ENGiNEERiNG Exclusive distributor of l..Dck-Righf"'VW Locking Differentials The ultimate on- and off-road traction for VWs PERFORMANCE Billet Racing Diffs for Swingaxle, IRS, and 091 Bus TRANSAXLE Billet Aluminum Sidecovers and Axle Tube Flanges P RODUCTS Hard to Find New and Used Parts Wholesale/Retail.

One man went so far as to say, "If we have to use penalties estab-lished by previous Boards, then why even discuss the present case. You're not giving us a choice." This same member, who felt placing Simon down a position was too severe ( he had won Class 1 ), later stated that any entry who fails to stop at a checkpoint should be black flagged and removed from the race. Appar-ently, this guy feels it is fair to penalize without a trial, but to assign a consistent penalty is too severe! Despite pleas for consist-ency from SCORE President Danny Cau and myself this Board issued Paul Simon a letter of reprimand for failure to-stop at checkpoint 1. (Of course in />reuious etients Danny Cau has ouer ruled the CRB and disqualified a car without a trial. ed. ) Not stopping at checkpoints and the finish line was apparently the violation of choice, as five other entries were protested by SCORE Officials. Because of the similarity of these cases and the fact that only two of the five attended the meeting. I will combine them into one column, #1012 Ryan Thomas and #803 Harvey Risien Jr. were issued letters of reprimand for failure to stop at the finish line. Both drivers stated that they were not aware that a stop was necessary. #1021 Steven Miller was issued a letter of reprimand for failure to stop at the finish line. Miller was unable to attend the meeting due to an emergency. Because he communicated this to Danny Cau, no action was taken for failure to appear. #1027 Nick Baldwin received a 15 minute penalty for accelerating across the finish line and a letter of reprimand for failure to appear. #1096 Frank Orosco received a 15 minute penalty for not stopping at the finish line and checkpoint 10 and a letter of reprimand for failure to appear. It was a simple matter. Class full stock racer Marc Stein #899, filed a protest of abusive nerfing against Class 1 entry #110, a Porsche powered buggy driven by Carl Renezeder. Stein failed to appear in support of his case and the matter was dismissed. (It is hard to visualize a Class 1 buggy absuviely nerfing a 4500 pound full size truck, so that may be the reason Stein dropped the pro-test.) After a productive meeting with SCORE Officials Associa-tion (SOA) President Bill Wick, we decided that beginning at the Gold Coast 300 SCORE and lDRA personnel will be moni-toring checkpoints to ensure that all entries are being treated in the same manner. At this race a new checkpoint operating procedure began, with only one person at a time authorized to wear the orange reflectorized vest -the only person authorized to give direction to competitors, and every car was to stop at the checks. It is for the safety of the workers that both factory ·or privateer drivers should be forced to stop by penalties if common sense is not enough. They also devised a new penalty schedule, · included in the driver packet at the Gold Coast race. ( there were some holes in it at the Gold Coast, but it is a good start).

October 1993 Trail Notes ••• THE ULTRA WHEEL SHORT COURSE RACES at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in Lancaster, CA produced a good entry in a variety of classes for the night racing on Friday and the daylight events on Saturday. The format called for a heat race and a main event each day. On Friday Don Archibald won the Heat and the Main in Stadium UltraLites, Gary Gall won both events in Stadium Class 10 as did Steve Bishop in 1-2-1600, George Seeley in Class 5 and Greg George in 5-1600. Jim Zupanovich won the Desert Class 10 heat but Don McCarthy won the main. Rory Chenowth won the Mini Mag heat and Frank Bristing took the main. Mike Lesle won both events in his desert Class 3 Jeep, and Russ Jones did the same in mini trucks. The big desert trucks put on a door banging race, with the heat going to Jim Smith, the event title sponsor, and the main to Steve Kelley. These were night races. In the daylight on Saturday Archibald won the UltraLite heat but John Sarna took the main. Bill Goshen won the Stadium Class 10 heat and Gary Gall took the main. Zupanovich won the Desert Class 10 heat and McCarthy took the main. George Seeley repeated, winning both Class 5 events, as did Steve Bishop in 1-2-1600, Mike Lesle in Class 3, Rory Chenowth in Mini Mags and Russ Jones i-n Class 7. Greg George took the 5-1600 heat, but Mario Panagiotopoulus won the main. The big trucks put on a great race with Steve Kelley, Jeep and Jim Smith, Ford, leaning on each other all the way with Frank Vessels just astern. Smith won the heat and Kelley won the main. Look for this BUMP promotion to grow into something really significant next year. MTEG STADIUM RACING NEWS._ On August 30 Cheyrolet Motor Division announced that young off road sensationJimmieJohnson will join the Nelson & Nelson Racing team as second driver and teammate to Rick Johnson ( no relation) in the new '94 S-Series Chevrolet trucks in Las Vegas, September 11, during round seven of the nine stop series. Just 17 years old Californian Jimmie Johnson said he is lucky to be on the successful Nelson & Nelson team, and he was really looking forward to it especially to working with former motocross champion Rick Johnson. Like Rick, Jimmie started racing on a motorcycle. At age ten Jimmie placed fifth at the Las Vegas World Mini Motorcycle championships. In 1991 he parked the bike and began stadium off road racing in the Superlite class. As the youngest driver ever to compete in the series the 15 year old won four events his first year and was named "Rookie of the Year". In 1992 he took the Superlite Championship. "The timing for introducing a second Chevy into stadium racing is perfect", said Jon Nelson. "While Rick is vying for the Grand National Sport Truck championship, Jimmie can use the three remaining events of the season to get up to speed. Then, in '94, our goal is to bring home the Manufacturer's Cup for Chevrolet. Now that we have two trucks on the track that will be possible." TEXACO/HA VOLINE RACING MOVES TO OFF ROAD. They are using the hot deserts of North America as proving grounds for the new Havoline Synthetic Motor Oil. The oil company announced the new motor oil sponsorship of the BFGoodrich/ Ford Rough Riders Off Road program this year for SCORE International and MTEG Stadium events. John Howell, Manager of Racing for Texaco's Advertising and Sales Promotion Department said "We have chosen the Rough Riders to illustrate Havoline's new synthetic oil product in action off road, in the dust, dirt, the high tech engines and heat, the actual environment that Havoline Synthetic Motor Oil was developed to handle. Texaco/ Havoline Racing has a winning history with the late Davey Allison in NASCAR and with Mario Andretti and Nigel Mansell in Indy car, all campaigning in Fords. We feel we have the same winning combination with the Rough Riders, eight Ford trucks in mostly desert classes but a pair in stadium racing too." THE FINAL FLAG - A pair of pioneers from the early days of desert off road racing died this year, and we just recently learned the sad news. Bill Howard, from Phoenix, AZ, raced a Class 8 truck for many years and was instrumental in helping Walt Lott and HDRA put on short course races in the Phoenix area at both PIR and Firebird Raceway. Bill died in late spring of complications from a stomach problem. May he rest in peace and our condolences go to his family and friends. No sooner had we learned of the above then we heard that Charlie Mefford died suddenly in August. His Jeep dealership in Tulare helped the CJ drivers of the early years in off road racing a good deal, and he was the major sponsor of many time champion in Class 3, J.M. Bragg. Charlie sold the dealership a few years back, but kept the parts department, which he sold recently. Charlie was 69 years young and we again offer condolences to the family and friends of a great supporter of off road racing in the desert, especially in the 1970s. ADRA CINDER MOUNTAIN EARLY REPORT - Buckeye's Jim Pierce took the overall and a whopping $3,700 Pro cash purse in the tight, dusty and hot course near Flagstaff, AZ. The race was held entirely on a continuously shifting pea gravel volcanic surface located in the shadow of the San Francisco Peaks. "JP" then handed a $1,000 'kick-back' check to race prepper Larry Foddrill, the teenage son of Danny, the self proclaimed King of Arms. The two seat pre-runner was in the middle of the pack and moved up as Steve Melton { in the old Fortin Class 10 chassis) blew a motor. Shannon Schulz lost a clutch in the ex-Finney/ Foddrill Porsche Chaparral. Leader Daniel Hyde in the ex-Schulz Farmco 10 rolled it, but did win Class 10, while final lap leader Robert Gayton took a tour through the pines and pulled out his coil wire, sending him back to second and costing him his third straight ADRA win. Wayne Greene could do no wrong in the Limited Pro class as once again he came home the winner in his venerable DRT chassis'd 2-1600. "Over nine hundred'bucks! It's well over two grand that we've won this year alone here in ADRA!" The Beer Belly Racing Teams' Rodney Hayes was a close second in the Parker Auto Parts Challenger. Tony Pierce had a rough day in his 2-1600. He got stuck, rolled it, then broke a torsion dog-ear. Rich "Stretch" Severson won the Pro 418 class in the Tom Buck Auto Jeep Honcho over a seven car field, and was fifth overall to boot. We'll have a full report and photos next month. RUMORS ABOUND in the off road silly season, and one that seems valid is that Dodge will withdraw its Dakota trucks from the MTEG Stadium Series, this news coming on the heels of signing on champion motorcycle star Jeff Ward who recently replaced Brian Stewart in the Walker Evans stadium team. Seems odd, but maybe they have something new that will debut next January at Anaheim Stadium. LATE FLASH Robby Gordon finished second overall in Mid-Ohio September 12th and on September 11th the Toyota Team swept the MTEG Sport Truck Cf ass at Las Vegas winning both heats and Ivan Stewart won the Main Event making it a clean sweep for Toyota. Full report next month. Dusty Times

THE IDRA CORNER A Frank Discussion On The Competition Review Board By George R. Tlwmpsori In 1987, the IDRA assumed responsibility for the operation of the Competition Review Board. We took on this thankless job as a service to the racing community because there was considerable controversy revolving around the way the penalties were assessed, particularly in the case of HORA President, Walt Lott's "closed door" decisions. I liked old Walt and I'm not going to waste a lot of time questioning his procedures, but the fact is that someone needed to bring some credibility to the process of assigning penalties and the IDRA was successful in doing that, after some early blunders. I acted as CRB Marshal for the IDRA until this year when I stepped down after appointing Reese King to this post. Reese had been Vice President of the Score Officials Association and agreed to resign that post to become an officer in the IDRA and assume the duties as CRB Marshal. By 1989 the operation of the CRB had become standardized and the IDRA produced a booklet for the operation of this system called The Format and Guidelines for the Operation of the Com-petition Review Board. Like any system, the CRB has occiasionally required certain adjustments to keep it viable as a system, in response to the constantly changing state of the sport. We made such a change in 1990, when we .switched from time penalties to position penalties. During the past six years there have always been those, who were critical of the CRB, although none have ever come forward with a better way to operate the system. One of the most common complaints has been the lack of standardized penalties for infractions brought before the board. I have always been opposed to "standardized penal-ties" because the nature of these infractions are seldom black & white. We are not racing at Daytona or Indy where condi-tions beyond the weather are constant and each second of the race is recorded by cameras and witnessed by hundreds of thousands of spectators. We are competing in an environment which changes at regular intervals throughout the year and the sanctioning body must react to those changes in order to put on a race. As a result of this, checkpoints and road crossings may not always be identical from race to race or from checkpoint to checkpoint within the same race. Variables such as these make it necessary to consider each case on it's individual circumstances before determining guilt or innocence. Prior to the recent Fireworks 250, previous CRB's pursued a schedule of penalties based on precedent from previous review boards. This information was provided to them by the CRB Marshal and generally, board members seemed comfortable with assigning a penalty which had some basis in CRB history. Such was the justification used by the Parker 400 CRB when they penalized Walker Evans, Mike Lesle, Marlo Panagiotopolous Jamar Super Shifte Make missed shifts a thing of the past!

Not much was said by Mario or Duke about the penalty, however Walker and Mike seemed to take issue with the severity of the decision. Right or wrong, they were forced to accept the decision because there were ample precedents which made the penalty credible and standard. Whether or not it was fair remains another issue altogether. The fact that this exact penalty had been levied by at least three other boards, in seven different cases made the penalty seem almost compelling to the mem-bers of this board who had no interest in challenging these earlier precedents. Enter the members of the Fireworks 250 CRB. Faced with very similar cases involving Dave Simon and several others, this board felt no obligation to apply the penalty established by pre-cedent. Apparently the members of this board felt that the penalties levied at Parker were too severe and decided to break with precedent and issued Simon and the rest letters of reprimand for this infraction. Under the Format & Guidelines, they were com-pletely within their rights to do this. Could the fact that Dave Simon was the un-official Class One winner have been a factor in this decision? I don't know! In the fifty or so boards where I have been the CRB Marshal, I have noticed a reluctance on the part of the board members to penalize a class winner. Walker and Simon are locked in a points battle. Thus far this year both have been found guilty of the same offense and yet ... only Walker has had to give up points for the violation. One wonders if the members of the Fireworks 250 CRB took this into consideration when they decided to re-define what's fair. The fact that this decision will cause future board's considerable difficulty in dealing with the question of checkpoint violations would be an understatement. In terms of the credibility of the CRB, this was a disastrous decision. I am not questioning the right of the board to consider the fairness of a penalty or to break with preced-ent but I do question the wisdom of doing so in the middle of the season. The time to have done this was at Parker, before four other competitors paid the price. As the IDRA Managing Direc-tor, it is my responsibility to come up with solutions whenever I see a weakness in the system we have designed. Although I have always been an opponent of standardized penalties, I am forced to consider this course as the lesser of two evils so here is what everyone can expect effective with the Gold Coast 300. At the present time there are two procedures carried out by the CRB in hearing any case. The first procedure is to listen to the cases, evaluate the testimony of all witnesses and make a deter-mination of guilt or innocence. This having been done, the board enters the penalty phase which ends in a determination of exactly what penalty to levy on the guilty racer. Events have led me to the conclusion that a standardization for penalties must be developed, wherever possible and applied without regard to finishing position or the cost of your racing program. The CRB will make the determination regarding guilt or innocence after which the Race Director will apply the appro-priate penalty as determined by the schedule of penalties. There is no argument, no controversy, no sniveling ... that's simply the way it is and everyone knows the deal going in! The following schedule of penalties has been determined by examining majority past preced-ents and meeting with SCORE Officials with our recommend-ations regarding what previous boards have considered fair. Areas for standardization now include: 1. Failure to Appear at the CRB after you have been protested! This penalty will now carry an automatic Letter of Reprimand. _2. Rolling through a Check-point without endangering CP workers safety! One ( 1) position. 3. Rolling or speeding through a checkpoint, endan-gering CP workers safety! Automatic disqualification. 4. Traveling backwards on the race course-Race or sup-port vehicle! See Reckless Driving. 5. Major and Minor Abusive Nerfing! Minor Nerfing -One ( 1) Position. Major Nerfing -See Reckless Driving. 6. Abusive conduct toward a race officials! Automatic Disqualification. 7. Intentional Short-cours-ing! Automatic Disqualification. 8. Various Illegal Pitting infractions! Illegal stationary pit -One ( 1) position. Pitting in a restricted area -Automatic Disqualification 9. Reckless Driving or en-dangerment • support crews and race vehicles! Automatic Disqualification. 10. Speeding in a restricted area! First 25 M.P.H. over posted speed -One (1) position. Over 25 M .P.H. over posted speed - See Reckless Driving. 11. Any combination of two safety related infractions at one event! Automatic Disqualification. Certain flagrant violations will also carry the possibility of suspension and will be imposed at the discretion of the Race Director and the CRB Marshal. This will relieve the burden of assigning penalties from the shoulders of the CRB while at the same time affording all racers the opportunity to a fair hearing. Once again I will remind everyone that any and all protests must be filed at least one ( 1) hour prior to the meeting of the CRB. If this criteria is not met the case will be dismissed and stricken from the record! These penalties may seem severe, but in reality represent the standard set by precedent in previous cases spanning the past 6 years of CRB records! Many of you may be happy to note that they are black & white. Now that we all know exactly what the penalties will be, the only question remaining is whether you are guilty or innocent! Dusy Times

SCORE GOLD COAST 300 Larry Ragland Takes Overall Win Photos: Trackside Photo Inc. Larry Ragland broke back into the first overall position in the Gold Coast 300, recording fast lap of the race on the second loop, 1 :25:49, to take the Class 8 and overall lead, his only problem a late last lap flat, and he won the class and the overall by just over a minute. Larry Ragland squeezed his Chevy truck into the overall win at SCORE's August Gold Coast 300 by a margin of a minute and 4 seconds over Pat Dean in his Porsche powered Chenowth buggy. The race, headquartered at Michael Gaughan's Gold Coast Hotel, enjoyed some typical Las Vegas weather, beginning on Friday with a fierce windstorm that threatened to blow the contingency donors out of the Gold Coast parking lot. That was followed almost immediately by a thunderstorm that was a real gully washer. It was received with good spirits, the feeling being that the rain falling on the race course would help to hold down the dust for the drivers the next day. There was a small chance of rain for Saturday, but it didn't materialize, and temperatures hovered in the low three digits, with the humidity at about 90%. And when the green flag flew, it was as if it had never rained. The SCORE folks had the watering truck busily spraying access roads and start/ finish area to keep the dust down, and the racers were glad for a stiff breeze to blow the dust off the track on the first lap. The course was identical to last year's, a long amoeba shape running along the east side of Highway 15, its northernmost point being up near where the community of Sloan used to be, and then south almost to the state line. It was a good mix, including rocks and silt, mountain passes and some high speed roads. There had been no open pre-running, but a guided tour, called the "Publicity Run" had been held a week or so before the race. The course was 77 miles long, with three laps required of most classes, and a nine hour time limit for all. The Stock Mini, Stock Full Pat Dean drove alone in the two seat Chenowth Porsche, besting all the big V-8 trucks in Class 1, taking the class win and second overall for the race sponsor, winning by just 1 ½ minutes. Ivan Stewart was first on the road most of the distance, but his quick pace wasn't quite quick enough and he was second in Class 1 in the swift Toyota. and Class 11 cars would be of worn out axles, because the required to run only two laps. measurements had been incorrect There were 105 starters, a drop for the new set.

And, with Baldwin was the unlimited cars, with Jason sidelined after a hard bump from Baldwin, in his Porsche powered the rear damaged his motor, it was Chenowth at the front of the Ivan Stewart and his Toyota in pack. But it wasn't long before front on the road. But the fourth Paul Simon, in his big Ford, took car to come around, after starting over at the front, his truck 13th, was Steve Kelley, in the running in top form, but Jeep,andhehadrecordedthefast unknown to him, sporting a pair lap for the class, at 1:28:12, and had put his ungainly looking steed into the lead. Brian Collins was second in his Porsche Chenowth, just 13 seconds later, and Pat Dean, in Mike Gaughan's Porsche -Chenowth, ran third, another 30 seconds back. Then Stewart was fourth and Frank Arciero, in Bob Gordon's Type IV Chenowth, ran fifth, two minutes and 41 seconds in back of Kelley. The 1-2-1600s had only ten starters but a good battle. Danny Porter and Mark Rudd is took the early lead with fast lap at 1 :49:02, had to stop twice for fuel but pulled out the class win with almost 17 minutes in hand. In Class 3 Curt LeDuc took an immediate lead in the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and with co-driver Mike Leste they built the lead to 12½ minutes at the flag and finished a smart tenth overall. On the second lap Kelley lost a balljoint, and Dean moved into the lead. Stewart was second, just 10 seconds behind him ( although still actually first on the road), with Collins, the only driver who's won this race overall two times, in third place now. Kelley had fallen to fourth, and Doug Fortin, Jr., in his Chevy, was fifth. He'd had a flat on lap one, Doug Fortin Jr. finally got a good result with his Class 1 Chevy truck, as he drove right into third in class and also finished a fast fourth overall.

Kevin Davis went alone in his Lothringer, rolled on the first lap but made back a good bit of the time lost to finish second in Class 1-2-1600. Mike Julson was another who rolled on the first lap, got spectator help to right the Jimco, and with co-driver Bob Lofton they finished third in Class 1-2-1600. · In Class 10, which was next off -In Class 4 Dave Ashley moved his Ford out front from the flag, got fast lap for _ the line, the first lap leader was Darren Ebberts in the two seat Raceco that used to be Ray Croll's race car, has been his pre runner, and is now the race car for his son Steve. Ebberts had two minutes and 38 seconds on Rich Fersch, in a Mirage that used to be a 1600 car. Randy Wilson ran third, 33, seconds later in his Toyota powered A-armed Raceco, and Dave Richardson ran fourth in a Chenowth, followed by Jimmie Johnson, in Tom Schilling's Jimco. Says Johnson, "I have a big learning curve to do out here in the desert. It's hard to keep myself calmed down." Johnson is a newcomer to desert racing, but a veteran stadium racer, at age 17. the class, and said he had to slow a bit with overheating but he still won Class 4 by over half an hour, Wilson moved into the lead on the second lap, fueling as he hopped out and put his brother, Rick, in for the second half. They had just over two minutes on Fersch, and his co-driver, Brian Parkhouse. In third it was now Steve Croll, age 17, driving only his second race, and followed by Richardson, who'd had a flat, nine minutes later. Johnson gave up the wheel to Schilling, and they were still in fifth place. Among those struggling behind the lead and was trying to figure out why his truck was down on power. It was still a very close fight, with only three minutes and 28 seconds separating first and fifth place. Stewart, whose battle plan is usually to run a steady pace early in the day, and then push at the end if he needs to, pushed all right, and had the fastest third lap for the class, but it was only 10 seconds quicker than Dean's, and it wasn't enough to catch him. Dean had a flawless day, and enjoyed giving the sponsor of the race, Gold Coast owner Gaughan, a win in the car with his name on it also. Stewart was only a minute and 36 seconds behind Dean. In third it was Fortin, about 11 minutes later, followed in by Kelley, who says he's still getting used to the Jeep, and finding it very different from his previous Class 8 ride. He'd lost some shock reservoirs on the rear on his last lap. And Bob Richey and Tom Baker, in their Porsche Raceco, slid into fifth place, with no brakes. The Class 8 trucks took the start next, and by the time they got to Pit F, about 68 miles into the race, Rob MacCachren, who'd started fifth in his Ford, was in front of the pack. He held the lead at the end of the loop, with over two minutes on Ragland, who was second, after having to cap off a rear brake line when a caliper went out. Frank Vessels had his Ford in third place and David Bryan, in a Ford, was fourth. On the second lap MacCachren lost a torque converter, and Ragland recorded the fast lap of the race, at 1:25:49, to secure his lead. He now had 35 minutes on Bryan, who was second, while most of the others had mechanical woes. MacCachren was third, another 24 minutes back, and Vessels lost an hour somehow, but was still in front of Brian S_tewart, _ Dodge, who'd looked Dusty nmcs • good partway into· lap one, and then lost an hour.

In fourth it was Don Lampus, Sr. and Jr., in their Jimco, while Rod Muller and Mike Halliday were fifth in their Chenowth. The class was spread a little further apart than is customary for this group, with eight minutes separating the first and fifth cars. Midway through the second lap Danny Porter took over from Ruddis, and, while they were running well, they had no battery, so had their pumper helmet motor turned off, along with the radio. And they were glad it wasn't a nighttime race. The Lampus car had moved up to second place, and Muller and Halliday were now third, with Julson in fourth and Kevin Davis, who'd also rolled on the first lap, and now had power steering in his Lothringer, in fifth place. Porter and Ruddis, who'd been late to staging and hadn't stopped to top off before the start, had to fuel twice, but otherwise had no stops, and except for the dead battery, ran well. They took the win, finishing a full 17 minutes in front of Davis, who had to fix his throttle cable three times on the last lap. In third it was Julson and his co-driver, Bob Lofton, the car owner, who'd had oil all over the clutch, and Muller and Halliday were fourth, followed in by Josh Baldwin, in a Chenowth, in fifth. The two wheel and four wheel drive mini trucks, Class 7S, ran next, and Darren York got his Ford out in front right away, with the class fast lap at 1:47:38. He had five minutes on Billy Bunch and Ron Lister in their Ford at the end of the first lap, and they were just three minutes in front of Jeff Lewis, in a Chevy, who'd lost some time stopping to help pull Jerry McDonald out of the silt. Malcolm Vinje and Mark Hansen ran fourth in their Toyota. Dusty nmcs York, who'd slowed a bit because of high oil temperature on the first lap, was now worried about low oil pressure, so he kept stopping to add more. He continued to lead, and at the end of lap two had almost eight minutes on Lewis, who was having a smooth day. Bunch and Lister were third, and Vinje and Hansen were still fourth.

But, since there had been only one entry at the time of the driver's meeting, SCORE officials had announced that it would be required to run only one lap. If more cars showed up, they would run two. And, an additional car did show up for late sign-in and tech at the crack of dawn, and got it all done in time to start the race. So it looked like a two-lapper. Except that for unknown reasons, Danny Cau, SCORE's president, decided that they should run only one lap, and asked the staging crew to give the drivers that message. So at the end of the one lap, Peter Rosenstein and Duane Morimoto were it, since their only competition, the team of Eric Solorzano and Hector Rodriguez, who'd come up from Tijuana, were busy in their pit replacing or repairing a transmission. They did manage to finish also, about three hours later. In the Stock Full class the first lap leader was David Sykes, in a Ford, recording a nice 2:44:29, and way out in front of Gordon DiCarlo, who'd obviously had some mechanical woes with his Ford. Sykes shared the driving with Marc Stein, and the team had only one flat and one broken shock, and a little time stuck in the silt, and took their first win. DiCarlo had a good second lap, and managed to finish, almost two and a half hours behind. In the Stock Mini field it was Mike Yarman in front, in his Toyota, with a time of 2:26:11, and just 14 minutes up on Scott Sells and Darren Klopp in another Toyota. But Yarman broke on the second lap, and Sells and Klopp moved up to the lead, and took the win. Michael Martin and Rick Hughes, in still another Toyota, October 1993 Peter Rosenstein and Duane Morimoto are the class of Class 11 this year and they won by over three hours at the Gold Coast 300, a tough run for them with all the silt. Marc Stein and David Sykes ran their Ford F-150 in Stock Full Size class had a flat and lost a shock but were really thrilled with their first off road racing class win .. finished second, about three and a half hours later, and none of the others managed to make two laps. The Competition Review Board had only one case to discuss, and it resulted in no action being taken: so all the results stood. This had been another short day, with all the racing over by dinnertime, and everyone heading back to las Vegas to test their luck at the tables. SCORE now comes to the culmination of the year, the Baja 1000, this year a loop race beginning and ending on the eastern side of the peninsula, in Mexicali. Old time racers will remember some long ago events headquartered in that hospitable town. The city has changed a bit since then, adding several glossy new hotels with adjacent restaur-ants and shopping areas. It should be a nice change to visit Mexicali for the November 11th through 13th event. ~ Scott Sells has done a lot of winning in Stock Mini Trucks in other venues, but the Nevada silt didn't slow his Toyota and he won the class with Darren Klopp riding shotgun for two laps at 5:41:38.

On to the racing, Class 11 D took the first green flag under blue skies and with excellent racing weather. Rod "Old Guy" Attig came around the first lap in the lead but caught a course marking barrel and lost position that he never really quite made up. This was the advantage Dan Baudoux needed to pull ahead in what appeared to be a comfort, able lead. Don't know how he does it, but the incredible Cory Friday came from mid,pack, went around Attig, around Rich W oulf and began to put some steady pressure on Baudoux.

Friday made one heck of a run for it and placed second. Rich W oulf and Keith Berrard wound up doing some heads up driving for third position, Berrard taking advantage of a wide corner turn by W oulf and capturing third place. W oulf took home a nice fourth place. John Huven did an excellent job of maneuvering his machine from way back in the pack to fifth place. While not in the top running, Heath Schooley brought his machine around slowly but surely on three wheels and Rick Rayford finished the race with a distinctly flat left front tire. Class 6 had a very nice turn out with some very nice racing! As a matter of human interest, track photographer Gregg Witte usually is behind the wheel of his Class 6 Ford Mustang. However Gregg was dealing with a dislocated shoulder so his co, driver, World Famous Off Road Racing Announcer Terry Friday took the wheel and drove just like a World Famous Off Road Racer!!! More on "World" and "Famous" later. The entire race was a shoot out between Crandon's Fay Statezny and Argonne's Al Fannin with "Crazy Man" Bekavac, Tim Kamm and Bill "The Survivor" Graboski also on board for some heavy duty racing. While Statezny went in for the win, it was not without Fannin leading a lap, giving the lead up and pushing Statezny around the track. Fannin pulled out a very nice second. Tim Kamm, Bill Graboski and Terry Friday were at one point in a knock down drag out fight for third. Friday broke down, Kamm had to pit and Bekavac hung in there for the third place position. Graboski placed fourth and despite the pit stop Kamm pulled in fifth. Randy Zimonick, Gary Gottschalk and Jay Martens all had early mechanical blues and were off the track before the halt way mark. Mike Brue was out to show the crowd how it's done in the Class 5,1600 race and drove to a flag to flag win. Nice work, Mike! Some nice racing action took place between Greg Smith in Joe Epper's machine and Bill Bowles. Bowles was right on Smith's bumper each lap just waiting for Smith to make a mistake and make the position pass. Smith made no mistakes. Bowles would come around and up to Smith's door to read the sponsor's names but wasn't able to make a full pass stick. Smith took second place, Bowles placed third by an eyelash. Terry Wolfe went by on lap one with audible motor troubles, pitted and then drove the fastest time posted in this race trying to catch up. Time was against him but the show was dyn,o,mite! Class 9 / 10 green flagged on the one mile track and posted some super fast times in a superb race. Given average lap times and going for average speed, those buggies were flying around at approxim, ately 65 mph! Art Schmitt III, · with a tremendous challenge by Jeff St. Peter, went on a flag to flag run for the win. St. Peter, at most points, was turning an identical speed so the two stayed nose to tail for most of the race. Schmitt gained a little more speed toward the end leaving St. Peter with a battle for second position with Jeff Probst. Probst gained steadily on the two leaders from the start, made a terrific try for a pass, last lap on an infield corner but couldn't make the move stick. Probst settled for third. Todd Attig with a smoking motor finished in fourth, Trent Hanson in fifth and Tom Schwartzburg in sixth. Randy Eller and Chris Haenlein tangled on the first lap and by lap two both were out of the running. Bryan Bernloehr and Dan Baudoux both pulled off the track a third of the way through. Fourteen trucks began the Al Fannin tried in vain to catch his pal who was leading Class 6, but he fell short by half a car length at the checkered flag in his Chevelle. Track Announcer Terry Friday does a little high flying in Gregg Witte's Class 6 Ford Mustang, but he went out with mechanical trouble about midway. Jeff St. Peter got his racer muddy in the early going in Class 9/10, but he kept it going to finish second in the race, and next day he was also second in the Unlimited Championship.

The start of the Class 7S race got a little wild, but they all survived this early turn lack of direction and continued on to put on a good race for the little truck honors. Jim Bradley had a good run in his Ford Ranger, but he wasn't quite fast enough to keep up with the winner, but he finished the race in a solid second in 7S. Jed Flannery is driving the Parsons truck very well this year, and he just trailed his father Jack into the finish line in the hard fought Class 8 race. Class 7S race and exactly half of them actually finished. Guess attrition is going to continue to take a big bite out of this Class. Team Alligator, with Jimmie Crowder of Tallahassee, Florida, at the wheel, introduced a new C lass 7 S truck and looked awesome for as long as it lasted! W e watched Jeff Kincaid take home the honors in the first two races but this one belonged to Scott Taylor. After Crowder came around lap one in first, Taylor went the rest of the race for first place. Tom Heckers had second place nailed down until he had to leave the track giving way to Jim Bradley. Robert Chasteen worked his way through the pack arid survived for third place. Other finishers included Jim Moskalik, Al Walentowski, Michael Burke and Bill Water-strat. Dave VanDenElzen had his experimental truck out but had to pull off the track half way through the race. VanDenElzen is running his truck on natural gas, an alternative fuel certainly worth watching. The Class 8 trucks took their positions, the crowd got on its feet and the thunder rolled! Attrition again bit the field of finishers in half but the show was nothing short of spectacular! For the first quarter of the race it was a battle between Scott Taylor and Walker Evans with these two racing side by side, door handle to door handle. Holy Disaster, both trucks went off the track. While Evans and Taylor were going at it tooth and nail, Jimmie Crowder was holding down an awesome third place with Jack Flannery and Jed Flannery going door to door, nose to tail for fourth and fifth places. Crowder exited the track with Taylor and Evans and all of a sudden it was Flannery in first and Flannery in second! Jack put on his usual skilled performance for first place with son Jed running a most respectable second. Where was Jamey?? Riding with dad and watching brother Jed make his moves. Looks like we'll have three Flying Flannerys on the track soon! Dave Hackers and Dennis Ferdon put on a top of the line show for third and fourth places, Hackers in third. Chuck Brand finally got to debut his new Class 8 and did so with an excellent run for fifth place. Speaking of debuts, Pete Van De Hey's big Dodge took the track with the amazing Dan Vanden Heuvel at the wheel. What a show!! Vanden Heuvel put the pedal down and gave the truck a new work out! While the truck went down with mechanical blues, Vanden Heuvel put on an excellent show! It was also Mike Renkas' first time out this year, his truck going down with Dusty Times Art Schmitt Ill started the weekend right by winning Class 9/ 10 Saturday morning, had trouble Sunday in Class 1 /2 action, but came back strong to win the Unlimited Challenge event. mechanical blues. Farmer John Konitzer completed the list of finishers. No sooner had the over-filled grandstand sitting spectators settled back into their seats than the Class 4 ·trucks took their places for the green flag. It was back on your feet, jockey for the best viewing spot and off the line the Mighty Fours roared! What a treat to see Greg Gerlach rounding the last corner in first place most effectively closing the door on Jack Flannery, Ken Kincaid, Kevin Probst and a cast of thousands! Gerlach kept that door closed and maintained his first place position until he developed what "World" of "World and Famous Off Road Announcers" terms major clankety-bang-bang woes and pulled off the track. By this time Kincaid was also off and the amazing Jack Flannery was right there to take the lead and run with it to the checkered fla~. ("World" is Terry Friday, "Famous" is Ronn Kreuger) Now Kevin Probst was not back there lallygagging around by any means, the guy had his foot through the floorboard and was reeling Flannery in when his engine gave signs of breaking up. In truth, Probst was flying around the one mile track in one minute, eighteen seconds and that' s movin' pal! Geoff Dorr was by no means playing the slacker either and steadily pulled up on Probst as the Probst engine started automotive ails. With these three racers flying around the track and the rest of this incredible field, there wasn't a dull moment in the race. Probst checkered in second place, Dorr held down third. Bob Bemmels ran a consistent fourth place with Gerald Foster, Chad Hall and John Heidtman round-ing out the finishers. Love to watch those gentlemen of the 2-1600 class, especially when they all get off the start clean and most everyone finishes the race! What a show looked on the track!Jim Wiggins, challenged by Todd Attig, Greg Smith and John Greaves, held the lead for all but three laps, but the three he didn't hold were the last ones. Who did, you say?? Well it was that Greg Smith fella' again! Smith took home the victory, Wiggins placed second. What happened to Attig and Greaves? Attig was doing just real well until his engine put out some major smoke and he had to pull off. Greaves was right there to fill Attig's shoes and presto, the racing gods granted Greaves a flat left rear tire. The flat didn't put Greaves off the track but it did cost him four positions and placed Greaves in fifth. During this time Dan Baudoux snaked his way through the pack and neatly slid into third place. Mark Steinhardt drov_e his way to a nice fourth place finish. Cary Bowles, Gerry Parent and Walt Carlson put on an awesome show further back in the field letting the crowd know that no matter what position you're on, the name of the game is racing to one more position up the rung! The day's racing ended with the rip-snorting, ground pounding Class 13 Road Warriors! This Class took the track fourteen trucks and one '56 Chevy strong. Lowell DeGreef, a most familiar name to Class 13, took a one lap lead; Tom Jensen, another respected Class 13 name, took the lead for two laps and the rest of the race was all Dan Vanden Heuvel's! Watching the suspen-sion work on Vanden Heuvel's truck is like watching off road ballet, purely a work of art! DeGreef is breaking in a brand new truck and held down fourth position until .some major smoke pulled him off the track. Meanwhile another familiar name in Class 13, R.J. Flanagan, worked his way to third place right behind the formidable Tom Jensen, both finishing in that order. So, with October 1993 Jeff Probst took third in Class 9/10 in the winged Laser, but Sunday he won the Class 1/2 battle over Todd Attig and Scott Schwalbe in style. trucks having to pull off, who's in fourth! Brand new to Class 13, Ed Quade, Jr. was in fourth and young Quade drove one hell of a race to get there! Thornton "Ed" Schultz rounded out the top five. Other finishers included Dennis Rowland, Pat Brown and the '56 Chevy of Scott Stelzer. Talk about some real "ouch"; Don Gregoire finally got his brand new truck on the track, went two laps and threw a rod through the oil pan! At any rate and by anyone's count, the racing for Saturday, June 12 was state of the art! Spectators went home knowing they had viewed the best in off road racing. Drivers went back to campsites and pit areas to prepare for Sunday's racing! Class l / 2 took opening honors on Sunday, with the remarkable Art Schmitt Ill in what looked to be a run a way win. Not so, sports fans, Schmitt went off mid-race with what looked to be over heating problems. Enter Jeff Probst who flew his winged machine to a nice first place finish.

DavR Hr,ckers had a terrific dice with Dennis Ferdon for third place ,n Class 8, and at the flag Hackers won the battle and took third spot. Kevin Probst was flying around the track in his Class 4 GMC and was challenging for the lead when his engine went soft, but he held second place. Geoff Dorr was fighting for second place, but his Ford didn't quite make the pass when time ran out, so the 1992 class champ finished third in Class 4. -------------------~ full of hard charging :-:.cott Schwalbe and Jeff St. Peter. Schwalbe was close enough to Attig to read Attig's helmet the entire race; he made a valiant effort to pass Attig coming into the checkered flag jump and Jeff St. Peter, in this race, posted a missed by half a buggy length. one minute, sixteen second romp Interesting enough, don't always around the track for fast time of look to the leader for fast time the weekend! Nice work Class around any off road track. 1/2! According to our stop watches, One more time there just wasn't a blank spot on the track as Class 1-1600 took the green! No clean start this time around, right off the line there was a seven car tangle that should've put that Greg Smith fella' completely out of the top ten finishers Just wait! Jim Wiggins, John Greaves and Todd Attig escaped the pile up and were off and running in that order. Sorta• seems like the racing gods have a grudge this year against our man Wiggins. He had the lead and a nice run to the checkered flag when it was obvious to all that his motor was just plain running out on him. Best friend Todd Attig moved in to the lead on the white flag lap and went on for the victory. Now, we told you to just wait, so who's in second at the finish line? That Greg Smith fella' -who had hard charged his way through a field of top notch drivers from lap two on! W ith the ailing motor, Wiggins placed third and John Greaves rounded out the top four. Dan Baudoux, Rob Kinner, Bobby Calhoun and John Huss all finished on the lead lap. Scott Taylor was nearly unbeatable in his Ford Ranger with mighty four cylinders, and Scott won the Class 7S race and almost took, with a very close second, the Heavy Metal Challenge, beaten by just one V-8 truck. Jack Flannery was in good form at Antigo, took the Class B win away from son There just ain't no such thing as Jed, as they came through the pack to the front together.

Dan Baudoux had to be happy as he brought out his Class 11 and made a repeat performance of Saturday's racing. Baudoux went close to a flag to flag win. Some really nice racing took place for second, third, fourth and fifth positions, starring John Wiggins, Rod "Old Guy" Attig, Keith Berrard and Larry Bayer. First Attig held down second, then young Wiggins took it over and finished with that spot. Now Attig has third place until the checkered flag lap and back in the toolies Berrard gets around first Bayer and then Attig to fly by in third place. Bayer placed a nice fourth and "Old Guy" had to take home fifth! You take a hard look at Nita Woulf and wonder why a stiff wind doesn't just blow her off her feet and yet this delicate little lady is always in the thick of things! Nita drove an excellent race holding down sixth place until late in the race when Darrin Parsons and Rick Rayford overtook her. With twenty entries, this ain't bad!! Lady and Gentlemen -thanks for some superb racing! The first Championship Race fell to the Unlimited Buggies and a nice job of racing they did! Jeff Probst came off the start in what looked to be a definite run a way when with no warning, no clankety-bang-bang noises, his machine just quit. That's just what Art Schmitt III was looking for and away he went with a determined run for the win. Todd Attig and Jeff St. Peter set an unrelenting pace for each other with Attig in a narrow lead all the way to the white flag lap. St. Peter made a neat pass on corner one to take over second place and held it to the finish. Attig had a very Dusty Times

Bob Bemmels was in the Class 4 hunt all day, ran most consistently each lap and was rewarded with fourth place and was third in the championship race. The 1600 racers area always close, as here a foursome led by Todd Attig, then John Huss and finally Greg Smith jockey around for position. Jim Wiggins charges over the soft lumps in hi:, 1600 and Jim was second in 2-1600, third in 1-1600 and third in the Limited Championship race. close third place, Scott Schwalbe driving to a nice fourth. Mark Buttles rounded out the finishing five. The Manufacturer's Heavy Metal Challenge brought out a boat load of more rolling thunder with fifteen entries, understand-ing of course, that this Challenge was not open to Classes 6, 7S or 13, so we're looking at a whole bunch of Class 4 and Class 8 trucks! The flag dropped, the dust flew and we lost both Jack Flannery and Bill Lohf in corner two. Call it a case of too many trucks for a one truck corner; Kevin .Probst, Bill Lohf, Dave Hackers and Jack Flannery all wanted to be there at the same time. Lohf rolled, Probst got by, Hackers got by, Flannery didn't get by. As Lohf came back up on all four wheels he still had the pedal to the metal and the racing gods decreed that Flannery was gonna' get T-boned. Now it's lap two and Probst is in the lead with Walker Evans right on his bumper followed by Geoff Dorr, Kenny Kincaid and a cast of thousands. Lap three, Probst is off the track, Kincaid is off the track and Evans is on his way to commanding first place. The only other truck to finish on the same lap as veteran Walker Evans was Scott Taylor. Back to the action -Dorr drove handily into second place with Taylor on his bumper. Dorr held the door closed but in the process of door closing, Dorr rolled putting him off the track. Bob Bemmels has, by now, driven his way through to a very nice third place, followed closely by Jamey Flannery, Dave Hackers and Jed Flannery. Hey, the start of this race had all three Flying Flannerys in it!! Whoops, Jamey Flannery had to pull off so the order of things at the checkered flag was Evans in first, Taylor in second, Bemmels in third and Jed Flannery had passed Hackers for fourth place! Meanwhile the track patrol had Dorr back on all fours Jack Flannery did a number on the Class 4 field too, again coming from behind to lead the pack, fight off the challengers and win the class despite slowing a tad in the closing laps. Greg Smith had his 1600 racer ready for battle as he won Class 2-1600, was second in 1-1600 and the Limited Championship, and his wife Rhonda won the Ladies Limited Engine championship in the same car. and by crackey, Dorr finished the race. Other finishers included Farmer John Konitzer and Pete VanDeHey. Guess John Greaves had had enough of that Greg Smith fella' doing all of the winning and came to the Limited Challenge ready to rock and roll! In fact, Greaves rocked and no rolled it for a decisive flag to flag win. That Smith fella' and Jim Wiggins put on a dynamite show for position as did Todd Attig, Dan Baudoux and Mark Steinhardt. Smith and W iggins went at it tooth and nail for second with Smith making no mistakes and Wiggins giving it his all to get around. At the finish line Smith took second, Wiggins had third by less than a heartbeat. Attig held down fourth place but did so with heavy challenge from both Baudoux and Steinhardt. Further back there was some red hot racing between Walt Carlson, Cary Bowles, Jon Huss and Mike Notary. And it's back to heavy metal we go with a two wheel drive Heavy MetaJ Championship!

R.J. Flanagan's rig is modern underneath the nostalgic bodywork and he does very well in Class 13, and was, in fact, third in class in Antigo. Tom Jensen is another serious contender in Class 13, and it is a big class usually. Tom worked his way through the herd to finish second in class. Jeff Probst, here leading Art Schmidt, his teammate, won the Class 1 /2 race, but later on Schmitt won the Unlimited Championship event in a tight battle with Jeff St. Peter.

Whoa Nellie, another lap around and Bayer had the lead, Wiggins took over third place putting Sawall in fourth. Everyone maintained position until the last lap when, with a tremendous effort, Christensen took the lead back for the win. Bayer placed second, Wiggins third, Sawall fourth and Rhoads had fifth. Also finishing were Tracey Silloway, Shari Huven and Anne Schuster. Schuster deserved a round of applause as she finished after putting her machine on its roof. It happens every time!!! Yep, Class Women's Heavy Metal lined up for the last green flag of the race event but don't think for a flash that the racing action wasn't good! Everyone was in place to watch Shari Parsons and Gail Brand go at it with some top notch driving and it would have been too. However, Brand in a new Class 8 truck took the second corner, caught a rut the wrong way and rolled over. Parsons went on for a nice win. So, who's in second?? Marilyn Schultz of Barb & Marilyn Schultz was in second followed by her niece Robin Schultz. This gets right confusing, Robin is Barb's daughter; Marilyn is her sister-in-law so she roots for both of them! Track photograph-er Jeanne Brown held down fourth place. The only rain of the Race Event began with this class and by lap three the track was as slick as an ice rink. Both Valerie James and Kelly Hammes went down with mechanical problems. At the slick and very rainy finish, Parsons had first, Marilyn Schultz placed second, Robin Schultz placed third and Brown held down. fourth. Ladies, you were awesome! Oh yeah, hope the next race doesn't have one Schultz clanging sheet metal with the other Schultz!

Lombard London-Sydney Marathon Text & Photos: Martin Holmes Francis Tuthill and Anthony Showell had the lead when the rally reached Ankara, Turkey, held the lead by seconds across Asia, then the competition faded in Australia and the team Jn the tidy Porsche 911 won the historic Lombard London-Sydney Marathon. Australians Ian Vaughn and Barry Lake kept the ord Falcon, shown here on a stage at Ypres in Belgium, in contention all the way, and they picked up time on the last legs to finish second overall. British driver Francis Tuthill, center, won the marathon, and is shown here with Colin Short, left and Graham Lorimer with the Antonov air freighter. It must have been quite an adventure as well as a competition. Francis Tuthill and Anthony Showell won the historic Lom-bard London-Sydney Marathon in their Porsche 911, pulling away from their rivals over the longest part of the route, the eight days across Australia. After running incredibly close through Europe and India, they inherited a comfortable lead four days before the end of the 30 day event when their closest rival Graham Lorimer, Ford Escort, fell back. In second place came Australian Ian Vaughan in a Ford Falcon which had contested the 1968 event, while Kenyan rally driver Mike Kirkland, in 20th place when the event reached Australia, finished third in a Peugeot 504, with Roger Clark, Escort, right behind him. 106 crews left London's Chelsea Harbour on Saturday 17 April for· a 10,500 mile drive across the world at the wheel of historic cars. Headed by Andrew Cowan who had twice won this marathon in the past, at the wheel of the actual Hillman Hunter in which he was successful in 1968, the cars tackled a special stage in Kent before crossing to Belgium. Favorite driver was Roger Clark in an 1800cc twin cam Ford Escort, but, as on the original 1968 event in which he had been a convincing early leader, there was speculation that the special stages in Europe would count little Dusty Times compared with those in Australia. From the start till when the cars reached 5ombay there would be 21 special stages totaling a mere 450 km, all except two on asphalt. In the eight days across Australia the cars would face 22 stages totaling 1100 km. Originally there was to have been one air lift, Bombay to Freemantle but sudden cancellation of route permits in Iran meant that cars were also flown from Istanbul to· Delhi. Although one of the most expensive events in history, the entry fee was 12,900 pounds, the entry was fully subscribed, and every one of the finally accepted entries took the start. After two days all the cars were still running, though one, the Datsun 1600 of Michael Cotter rolled on the first stage, and eventual second place driver Ian Vaughan momentarily slid off the road on stage 2 in his Ford Falcon. Cowan was slowed with leaking brake fluid on the first day and Belgium's stages emphasized his lack of power on day two. Leader after the first day in which there was one gravel stage were New Zealanders Graham Lorimer and Gary Smith with a Ford Escort. After two asphalt stages on the second day in Belgium, Terry Hunter and Peter Bowden in a Porsche had moved in front. Roger Clark was clelayed on day 7 when he ran our or rue1 on a stage due to a faulty gauge. In third place was Colin Short, despite damage to his car one evening when being tested by a mechanic. Andy Cowan, now the Mitsubishi Ralliart chief, was struggling with his Hunter. Australian rallyman Ross Dun-kerton was the highest non-European driver, lying fourth in a Ford Falcon. The first retirement came on day 8 when the Oaf 55 of Jan Vermeer overturned. On day 9 Lorimer eased his pace because of poor local fuel. On one stage alone Tuthill pulled up from 43 seconds to only four behind the leader. Dunkerton, having to hold his gear lever in place, was also delayed by Hunter's Porsche which was stuck in third gear, but kept fourth place. It was another British Porsche driver Francis Tuthill who held the lead at the first rest halt at Ankara, Turkey. He had caught up after a puncture on the first stage, and a delay helping a fellow Porsche driver repair a drive axle on the second day. Lorimer was lying second after leading most of the way when Hunter had been delayed off the road on day 4. From Ankara the cars were air-freighted to Delhi in India, where the competitive sections began again. 102 crews reached Ankara but sadly one Australian cod river, Brian Ginger in a Holden Monaro, lost his life in a road accident in Turkey. Another retirement was the Rolls Royce of Tony Wilson which suffered terminal overheating. Tuthill had left Europe with an 11 second lead but after five extremely hot days in India this had shrunk to 8 seconds. Lorimer was second with the British club driver Colin Short third in another Escort. In temperatures of 42 degrees C Terry Hunter suffered serious overheating on his Porsche and Dunkerton had flywheel trouble on his Falcon. Cowan used a familiar world championship trick to cool the engine of his Hunter, spraying water from the washer bottle on the radiator. It was 43 degrees C on the second day and both Dunkerton and Hunter retired. Roger Clark had moved up to 12th place, catching up fast. Tuthill said the worst moment of his trek through India was when an elephant tried to eat his time card. Francis Tuthill continued to lead when the remaining 97 cars were air lifted from Bombay, India to Perth in Western Australia. He reached Bombay with his8 second lead intact, with New Zealander Graham Lori-mer's Escort just behind. So far the stages were virtually all on asphalt surfaces. From Perth till the finish on the other side of Australia, there would be twice as much stage distance, all on gravel. All close behind third place Short on stage times were J. Brittan, Escort; S. Dalgarno, Cortina; N. Wyzenbeek, Porsche 911; Ian Vaughan, Ford Falcon; M. Harvey-, Porsche 911; S. Ashton, Datsun 510, and the Ford Falcon of R. Quill rounded out the top October 1993 ten in Bombay. Tuthill systematically extended his lead over Lorimer when they restarted from Perth, especially when the latter slowed with head gasket trouble. Andrew Cowan was further delayed after an accident which finally dropped him back to 67th, but there was an impressive charge by the Datsun 1600 of Steve Ashton. After three days Ashton had risen from ninth to third, while Lorimer momentarily got ahead of Tuthill when the Porsche punctured, but then the Escort also punctured and fell back with starter motor trouble. On the fourth day Lorimer was still only two minutes behind the leader despite his steering breaking, while Vaughan, seventh at Bombay, was now in fourth although he went off the road at one point. On day 5 in Australia the run over the Flinders Ranges saw Vaughan up to second and Lorimer had fallen back to fourth with a loose oil pipe and electrical trouble. Ashton was back in 11th after an accident, and Roger Clark, who had fallen to 35th in Europe was sixth. Remarkably the event seemed to be getting still tougher. Leader Tuthill lost four minutes after taking a wrong turning; the Lorimer's Ford had a cam belt bearing seize and the similar car of Clark had a wheel bearing collapse. On the penultimate day Clark made his attack, winning three of the four separate stages and pulling up to fourth. With snow on the stages Tuthill spun twice and Laurie Beacham, the Australian Falcon driver who had moved to third, broke a rear axle and fell out of contention. On the last stage before the run to the finish at Sydney, Clark made a mighty attempt to pass Kirkland into third place, but in spite of hitting a rock and bending the steering the Kenyan finished 32 seconds ahead. Lorimer finished fifth. The Lombard Marathon was the longest historic event yet held, and was attractive to a wide variety of vehicles: six different types held the top three places during the event. 86 crews were classified at the finish.

BORE Wendover Express 100 Photos: Mike Jenkins Mike Baker was flying high, his only problem a sick radio, and he flew to a great first overall as well as winning Class 1-2-1600 in the quick time of 5:09:29, about two minutes up on the field.

Today Unfortunately that race was was no exception with several real ended when a broken trans put close races going on in different Barry out, and.Brett was also out classes. Here is the report. with a broken rear suspension. Class 10 produced some very Andy disappeared after the third familiar cars and some that were lap, also with trans woes. This left quite changed from what we Mike Flinn and Mike Hickey to remembered. The cars of Andy determine a Class 10 winner. A Clawson, Mike Hickey and Mike flat tire on Lap 5 slowed the Flinn Flinn were familiar, but the car, but he still led the Hickey car by several minutes. And, when Mike Hickey lost a new link pin on the last lap, the race was Mike Flinn's for the Class 10 win with an eight lap time of 5:11:49. The 1-1600 class was way too small for such a fun class, and when we hear comments about it not being fast enough, well you should have been there Saturday. A first and a third overall should say something for this class. Gary Brennan was sidelined with his car due to surgery earlier this spring, and several others didn't make it. So Mike Baker and Todd Bingham went out to have some fun, and fun was what they had. A flat on lap 2 gave Todd a handicap to beat, and with steady, almost equal, times he kept in the race just a whisker off the pace until a slight lack of motion lotion on the last lap caused him an unneeded delay. He found out the car will run on just plain old unleaded and he finished in third overall. Mike Flinn drove the only 8 lap survivor in Class 10, therefore he won the class, but he also dueled for the overall, ending up second overall in a time of 5:11:49. One of the races of the day was between the two Mikes, Flinn and Baker. The flat tire on the Flinn car gave the Baker car the lead; after the fifth lap Baker's radio was out and he wasn't sure who was still in the running in Class 10, so he gave the lead back to Mike F. so he wouldn't interfere with a class race. That didn't mean that he was going to let Mike F. run off and so the race was on. For the last three laps there was seldom more than ten seconds between them and usually less than that. Regardless of where they were it seemed they were hooked together and that is just how they finished with Mike Baker winning Class 1-1600 with an eight lap time of 9:09:29, which was also good for a two minute, twenty second lock on the overall win. Every class had some good competition and Class 5-1600 was one of those with real good racing. Leading off the class was the new car of Chris Klick, followed by Scott Butcher, Jim Magill and Craig Holt starting fourth. Unfortunately a shattered CV put Scott on the trailer early, but the other first lap times were a 43:47 for Craig, 44:31 for Chris and Jim had a 45:28. They all got faster with a 42:37, 43:35, 44:41, same order on lap 2. Craig set fast lap for the class on the third with a 42:05, Chris at 42:42 and Jim at 44:57 Chris won lap 4 with a 44: 15 to a 46:3 7 for Jim and Craig at 4 7 flat. New car gremlins got to Chris on the fifth lap costing him nearly two hours and putting the race into the hands of Craig and Jim, both of whom kept the pressure on to the end of eight laps, just 13 minutes apart, with Craig winning in 5:57:38 and Jim at 6 :10:37. Chris reappeared again in lap 6, but was just too far back to get into competition again. It is only fair to say that these guys were very lucky today because they were dangerously close to being taken to school by a co1,1ple of hard headed, long of tooth and amazingly fast racing Pros. The possibility of having to repair Barry's 5-1600 was the only thing that kept Guy and Jim from embarrassing the younger generation. Maybe another day! The enthusiasm in the Mini Metal class was very evident with Cam Peacock's Montana Mus-tang, Joe Nesbitt's Pink Passion, John Peake's Green Hornet and Lynn Potter's beautiful new toy. It was obvious that all of them have been busy preparing for this season, from the nearly complete 'rebuild' of John's '92 mount, to the 'regild' of the Emley, truck now the pride of Lynn Potter. Cam had made some major improvements as had Joe. Unfortunately an early front end failure put Cam on the trailer, damn cheap bolts. And Joe was well into lap 4 when a ditch up and bit him just hard enough to put him out. John was very consistent with most laps at 50-51 minutes with a seven lap winning time of6:04: 12. Lynn was right in there with the fast class lap at 4 7:05, but slight glitches on laps 2 and 6 cost him about ten minutes too much and gave him a finish time of 6: 13: 10. Good Racing Guys! Craig Holt set fast class lap in 5-1600 action at 42:05, and continued on his winning ways, although he had to race for it, winning by just 13 minutes at the flag. The Russ Fullmer Jeep, driven this race by Jeff Neagle, stayed clean and tidy and quick and had a flawless race, finishing the six laps in a winning 4:54:08. Several entries in Heavy Metal would have made it if we had waited a week or two, so we had just three starters at this race. Two were Jeeps and a Bronco made three. All left the line with very throaty V-8 sounds and looked like they were ready for battle. The Wrangler of Jeff Judge Todd Bingham turned equal times with the overall winner until a last lap flat slowed his 1-1600 to a second in class and third overall in the race. Page 26 Mike Hickey was in the Class 10 hunt until a broken link pin put him out on the last lap, but his seven laps were good for second in Class 10. October 1993 Jim Magill had a see saw battle with the winner for the lead in Class 5-1600 and he ended up second in class after eight hard fought laps at Wendover. Dusty Times

suffered overheating problems, and after a disappointing first lap retired rather than ruin a good motor. The Russ Fullmer Jeep piloted by Jeff Neagle set out to maintain its winning ways and appeared to be running a flawless race, slowing only a bit on the last lap. The Bronco of Kerry Stephenson was very close in only its second race, looking very smooth. The extra wheel travel they found had a cost. It seems the 'remanufactured' I beams were not quite up to the task with one failing on lap 6. The idea is fine and they tell me the next generation will be stronger. The finish time for the Neagle Jeep for six laps was 4:54:08, after the lap 5 lead of barely eight minutes over the Bronco. Then there were the Chal-lengers. Four were expected, three arrived and started.

It also proved that if you have a desire and an extremely limited budget you can convert almost any buggy into a Nine car and even win. We figured the Smith brothers have less than $500 invested, but they did have a lot of help from fellow racers with spare parts, like a seat from Todd, a front end from Les, and trans fix from Jay Stuart, some shocks and other goodies from our stash ... plus some long hours by themselves as well as Mike and myself. But we proved a point, that it can be done, and if you think you can't afford to go racing just think Challenger. Presto, you can have one too.

PIKES PEAK AUTO HILL CLIMB Paul Dallcnbach Breaks All The Records Photos Don Holbrook The Mears Gang hit Pikes Peak with Magnum Force. From the left, Rick was the Grand Marshall and pace car driver, brother Roger, dad Bill, and Roger Jr. were driving Dodge trucks in the Showroom stock class. And the winner of the class was "'Papa" Bill Mears. How about that? The three days of practice for the Pikes Peak Auto Hill Climb enjoyed clear, sunny weather, unusual for this event. The media attention focused on the Mears Gang with their Dodge pickups in the Showroom Stock Truck class. Roger Mears Sr. was fastest by over a minute in practice. His son Roger Jr. was second and the man that started it all, Bill Mears, was third fastest behind his son and grandson. Even brother Rick Mears was on hand to help out. Things sorted out after three days of practice, with the weather still sunny and bright. Robby Unser had quick time in Open Wheels, Leonard Vahsholtz was quickest in Stock Cars, and Rod Millen was fast in Open class. If these names sound familiar they should as they are all former winners. Records fell all over the place on Qualifying Day for the 71st running of the Pikes Peak Auto Hill Climb, sponsored this year by Chevrolet. The first record to go on the 5 .5 mile qualifying course was the weather. Never in the history of the Race to the Clouds had there been four days in a row of clear weather on Pikes Peak. Robby Unser had his sights set on the overall record of 4:31 :05 set by Ari Vatanen driving a special rally Peugeot in 1988. Unser's time was a 4:30:45 in the American made Speedway Motors/ -Chevrolet.

Unser also set a new Open Wheel record at the same time. Leonard Vahsholtz set a new Stock Car record with a 5:16:64 in his 1990 Ford Probe, Clive Smith made a new mark in the Super Trucks with a 5: 13:00 in a 1994 S-10 4WD Chevrolet. The Pikes Peak Open Record went by the wayside when Rod Millen put his 1993 Hyundai Elantra up the hill in 4:59:61. John Norris smashed the High Performance Showroom Stock number in a 1993 Mitsubishi at 5:33:61. Roger Mears Sr. took a 1993 Dodge Ram T 300 to a new time in the Showroom Stock Truck r0\9Jf1 ffitl-~ class with a 6:26:95. A new class called Unlimited had two entries and the qualifying record went to Nobuhiro Tajima, from Tokyo, in a 1993 Suzuki at 4:54:30. The weather changed for race day, July 4, and was best described as Four Seasons, S~mmer, Winter, Spring and Fall, with sun, rain, snow, fog and a wind chill factor at 20 degrees on the 14,110 foot summit. It didn't matter to 26 year old Paul Dallenbach, the youngest son of Indy Car Chief Steward Wally Dallenbach. In the Open Wheel Division Dallenbach drove Dan League's Davis built Chevrolet to Father and son in the Millen clan enjoy a moment, but neither won their class. Dad Rod, right, was second in the Pikes Peak Open Class in a Hyundai Elantra and son Rhys was third in High Performance Showroom Stock in a Toyota Celica. Wait till next year. Paul Dallenbach, here going through tech inspection, smashed the records with a 10:43:63 run in the Chevrolet powered open wheel race car built by Davis and owned by Dan League. Dusty Times

John Norris was the winner in the Showroom Stock Car division driving a 1993 Mitsubishi to a new record in a time of 12:34:58. The only double winner this year Leonard Vahsholtz won the Super Truck Division in a 1992 Ford F-150, again with a new It's a long walk back on the 12 mile run, as Open wheel contender David Donner looks sadly at the expired motive power in his race car as help arrives to clear the course. a time of 10:43:63 breaking a record of 10:44:22 set by Japanese driver Nobuhiro Tajima just a few minutes before and shattering the long standing record set by Ari Vatanen of 10:47:22 set in 1988. Paul got $10,000 for winning the Open Wheel Division plus $14,110 for setting a new overall record using a Chevrolet powered car. Dallen-bach lives in Basalt, CO, so he kept the money in his home state. The Vahsholtz name from Woodland Park, CO was firmly planted on the hill when Leonard Vahsholtz set a new record in the · Super Truck Division with a time of 11:47:22 in his 1992 F-150 Ford Pickup. Vahsholtz heli-coptered back to the starting line and drove his Ford Probe to the top in 11:47:28, breaking his old record set in 1986 of 12:15:49, making it his seventh win. It is interesting that he set almost identical times in the truck and the Probe. Vahsholtz, all pumped up by his victories, was the first to greet· his son Clint when he set a new record· in the Pro Open Motorcycle class of 12:29:28 over the old redord of 12:54:00. Leader of the Mears Gang, 64 year old Bill Mears showed his son Roger and Grandson Roger Jr., the way to the top with a 15: 1 7: 40, a new Classification Record in the Showroom Stock Truck Class. All three Mears drove Dodge Dakotas with Roger Jr. second in the propane fuel unit and his dad Roger third. Nobu-hiro Tajima, driving the Suzuki, had about 30 minutes of glory when he broke Vatanen's overall r.:cord in the Unlimited class, but it was all gone with Dallenbach's record run except he won the class ~nd holds the class record. The Pikes Peak Open Class saw Rod Millen's record of 12:43:73, set in 1989, shattered when Akira Kameyama of Sano City, Japan drove his Nissan to a time of 11.:42:95. British born John Norris, now of Los Angeles, broke the old record of 13:04:96 fo the Showroom Stock Class in a 1993 Mitsubishi with a time of 12:34:58. Paul Dallenbach said, "When I heard on the radio that both Robby Unser and David Donner had mechanical failure, I thought I might have a chance of winning. When Gary Lee Kanawyer, second fastest qualifier, crashed· into the rock just 100 feet from the finish, I knew I had won the Open Wheel, but breaking the Overall Record shocked me almost speechless. I was charging hard and almost lost it in the third turn. I told myself to back off a little." Even though the Upright Sprint Cars had to run with the faster Open Wheel Cars, all five finished the race. Butch Hardman of Golden, CO, driving his Dusty nmcs record of 11 :47:22. • Golden Auto Parts Hardman Chevy was quick in the Sprint Car and was fifth overall in the division. Hardman broke a record of 11 :54:80 set in 1968 by Bobby Unser in the front engine Sprint car with a time of 11:48:08. Malcolm Brazier, a 63 year old from Colorado Springs came out of retirement and with no practice made the 12.4 mile 156 turn route to the top in 14:50:70. It was complete agreement by all the drivers that they just didn't get that much better all of a sudden. It was the Calcium Chloride that was spread on the road that stabilized the base, reducing the dust and making a smoother surface. The Calcium Chloride was used on the lower half of the road last year, and the Pikes Peak Highway people decided it had reduced the dust and made a smoother and harder surface, reducing maintenance costs considerably. Calcium Chloride, used by dirt track operators for more than 30 years for the same purpose, had been suggested to the Hill Climb Association before.

TEENS TOP THE SNORE MIDNIGHT SPECIAL J.C. Dean And Brendan Gaughan Win Overall By Don Dayt.on -Notes by Jean Calvin Photos: Don Dayton Despite a glitch right off the start, Brendan Gaughan had no more mechanical problems stopped often for a drink of water, put J.C. Dean in the Chenowth VW for the last miles, and the teen team took their first overall victory, while the Barbary Coast team cheered. One thing you can always bet on at the SNORE Midnight Special, it won't be dull! From sign in and tech at the Lonesome Dove Steak House in Henderson, NV on Friday night to the awards breakfast back at the Lonesome Dove, the only slow time was about noon on Saturday. That was when the course clean up was scheduled but the ever loving U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service decreed that a clean-up was the same as a pre-run and a pre-run lap is the same as a race lap. Therefore, since SNORE is allowed a maximum of five laps in the rocky foothill area off U.S. 95 southwest of Henderson, which is replete with old mine type junk heaps numerous trails to the mines, and most trails are nearly solid rock impervious to the passage of a race car, the race would have to be reduced to four laps and we coufdn 't do it anyway because "press runs" are forbidden in that area in July. If that doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense, welcome to Bureau-. cracy 101. Nonetheless most of the regulars plus some new faces signed in July 23, ready to face the hazards of the dark without a look of any kind at the race course, but the map was better than most with mile markers and pit locations clearly marked along with access roads noted too. The rocks on this course are well known in the sport of desert racing and may have scared some drivers away as just 39 cars took the green flag Saturday night at 9:00 p.m. First away was a combined class of 1, 5, 10 and 4. The Baja Bug of Brad Thomas and Damon Wildmon led off followed by another Bug driven by Clay Flippin and family: PIKE'S SERVICE c ·ENTER ·BAKER, CALIFO~NIA CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF SERVICE TO OUR TRAVELING FRIENDS .... THANKS! Mobil. SERVICE ~e~,t} RESTAURAr,rr The pair of Class 10s were led by Brendan Gaughan, then came Mike Larson followed by Bill Dickton's Class 4 Dodge. What a mixed group it was! Leading the pack was the pair of 18 year olds in the Chenowth that J.C. Dean really wrecked less than three weeks earlier at the Fireworks 250, when he also broke his wrist badly. Brendan Gaughan planned to run the race to a mile or so short of the finish line and then put] .C. in to steer it to triumph, since he was the driver of record this year and the boys are in the SNORE points hunt. No sooner did Brendan get the car in top gear then it filled with smoke and the lights went out. The Barbary Coast crew's Eddie Webb quickly traced the trouble to a pinched wire and had the car back under way with only about five minutes of down time. Gaughan charged off into the night on the course where the team made its actual debut just two years earlier, going faster each lap and setting fast lap for the race on lap 4 at 47:58. He lost a few minutes on lap 5 as he stopped while the team put J.C. in the car, got it in a gear and sent him off for a mile or so to the finish line. The It was another 'almost' for Ken Freeman Jr. While he won Class 1-2-1600 by a half hour, he also rolled the car and missed winning overall by a slim 21 seconds, and that's close, and he was second overall. Class 9 held 16 cars and it was a real close race for half of them. 1992 points champ overall Mike Dixon emerged with class fast lap on the first round, kept up the pace and won the big class by over three minutes. Mike Larson & John Phegley had troubles on each of the first three laps in · their Class 10, got in a good fourth lap, but did not finish.

They had a flat on pressed on to cover four of the lap 3, had a spare but no tools, five laps after a variety of and the only way to get to them with a vehicle was down the course, heavily frowned on. So his intrepid crew put the tools in a back pack and rode a mountain bicycle to get to them, but the time loss was great. Lynn Dickton and Billie Looney ran the first lap in the Class 4, wanting to get their turn before the guys broke the truck. The girls finished the lap in fine style, builder Bill Dickton got in and broke the trans before mile 4 on the second lap. The Flippins got a good start, but soon new car glitches set in and they got in just one long lap, fifth in class. OPEN 24 HOURS EVERY DAY-YEAR ROUND THE BEST IN THE DESERT The second bunch away were the nine 1-2-1600s, and they had a real close race going. The first four cars to hit the line at the end of the first lap were 1600s, almost Brad Thomas and Damon Wildman had a sharp looking Class 4 Bug, and they together, and this was not a dust run in Unlimited class, but in this dark race they only did three laps. free course by any means.

-Kevin Colan zips past one of the numerous course and mile Bekki and Ken Freeman Sr. had electrical troubles that stopped the car on the last lap, but with a new battery they salvaged a third in 1-2-1600. Billy Bryan and Les Carter did manage to get lost and scale a mountain, but they came back with strong laps to finish fourth in Class 1-2-1600. markers, that make it hard to get lost, on his way to a best finish for him, second 1-2-1600. Colan was in first just eight seconds ahead of Regan and Tory Gubler, who had Bekki and Ken Freeman Sr., 15 seconds astern with Ken driving, and they were just ten seconds ahead of Ken Freeman Jr., who had already rolled, but did little damage. On the second lap Kenny Jr. set class fast lap at 50 flat and took the lead away from Colan, whose contact lenses kept falling out. Ken Freeman Sr. (Bekki drove only the last lap this race letting her dad have all the fun in the dark) was ahead on the track but behind his son on time, running a strong second: Regan Gubler rolled on lap 2 then turned the wrinkled racer over to Tory who got in one good lap before he too tried the inversion trick, doing too much damage to continue so they parked after three laps and were fifth in class. The status quo pretty much remained the same until the last lap. Kenny Jr. was first under the flag with riders Kerry Freeman and Kevin Mallette, and missed the overall honors by 21 seconds. Kenny reported no problems after the first lap roll, except that he did scratch his new red paint job, and said the course was very dusty. Ken Sr. had turned the car back to his daughter Bekki for the last lar,, but the alternator went south ,, hile the car was going north. She got within sight of the finish before the battery went belly up, and they had to get another battery so she could go the mile or so to the checkered flag. Meanwhile Kevin Colan went by to claim second place. Ken and Bekki settled for third only a minute and a half back, losing 20 minutes to the battery episode. The only other finisher was Billy Bryan/ Les Carter who drove most consistent mid 50s lap times, even with a siqe trip to the top of the mountain, after missing a turn. The other dnfs in 1600 class besides the Gublers were Mark Davidge/Stan Schenk, two laps, Dan Bradley, one lap and Danny Anderson/Larry Job, no lap completed although they started and got to mile 3. Class 9 fielded 16 cars and nine of them finished the rugged race, just four laps required of them. Mike Kline didn't make a lap with engine troubles, and Todd and Terry Vandawalker got in one long lap before parking while Brian Fieger took. almost four hours to get two laps in before retiring.Jason and Bill Avery were only a couple miles away from the checkers when Jason rolled about four times, end of race after almost four laps. Jeff Cepielik and Steve Meierdiericks also did three consistent laps before vanishing DustyTimes into the night. Jim Sumpter and Glenn Dickton were also mem-bers of the "Missed it by that much" club, going well until near the end of the last lap when they had a severe shortage of electrics. They did get it running but got to the finish line over the time limit. A surprise dnf was Bill Holbrook, . but he is still the overall points leader. He had gearbox troubles on lap 2, then the clutch went after lap 3, so he put it on the trailer. Meanwhile up front Mike Dixon was back on form', setting class fast lap on the first round, a 54:47, then did a 55, a 57 and finished with a 56 to win Class 9 at~ BUMPERS THE PERFECT ACCESSORY TO MAKE YOUR VEHICLE STAND OUT FROM THE REST!

Ralph Chadwick and Bryan Pennington were only 3½ minutes back in second in a Class 9 they claim they built almost entirely of "back yard junk". Gene Griepentrog and Kent Lothringer had trouble with their lights and slowed a bit, but fini~hed a fine third in the big field of Class 9 cars. Jeff Carr ran solo in the race and his first two laps were quick, but some problems slowed him on the final two and he ended up fourth in Class 9. Tom and Ann Sturgis had a fine run in Class 9, losing a little time on the second lap, but they speeded up to arrive a good fifth in the big class. Jim O'Donnell was another driver doing the solo bit in this race, and while his laps were all over the hour, he got them done to Kevin and David Streety had a good run in the dark, no real troubles and consistent lap times brought them to the finish second in Class 5-1600. place sixth in Class 9. ~ 3:44:31. Dixon, the 1992 overall points champ, has had bad luck all season until this race. He had his pumper hose come adrift, and admitted to driving the VW Werks car over the same cliff twice, but the Kirk Hadley trans absorbed it all and Mike won by 3~ l /2 minutes. Not far behind were Ralph Chadwick and Bryan Pennington who finished the BYJ Special {Back Yard Junk) the day of the race. It worked well even though Ralph and Bryan took turns rolling it and still took a close second, although the brakes were gone and the trans going. Third place went to the 1992 Midnight Special Class 9 winners Gene Griepentrog and Kent Lothringer driving a Lothringer, of course. Gene said he really didn't have enough lights, and it slowed him on the last two laps. Kent said there were two flashlights in the car, just in case the electrics died on Gene. Jeff Carr had two quick laps then slowed a tad on the final two, coming home two minutes out of third place. He said his left front brake kept locking up making the car go straight on right turns, and the lights were pointed every direction except down the race course. He must have been having fun though, because after finishing fourth,• he and his brother Cliff went out and cleaned the course picking up all the ribbons and arrows.

Ed Dunn had many co-drivers, Michael Lee Tucker, Jamie Egan Sr. and Fred Carstensen and between them all they took second in Sportsman Buggies. It was another crowd as Jack Bassett signed on Steve Ogle, Tommy Bradley Jr., Wilf Bassett and John Bassett, and they finished third in Sportsman Buggy class. Only two showed up in Sportsman Truck Class and Barry Slatter, with Dennis Thorn riding along, ran away and hid on his way to the victory in his well prepared Ford Ranger. the last Class 9 four lap finisher. The 5-1600 ranks were down to two from last year when nine cars started the race. The close proximity to the Gold Coast 300's new date in early August had cut into the usual strong entry for the Midnight Special. All year when his schedule permitted Rob MacCachren has been: the second driver on Bruce Fraley's Bug, and usually got in a lap. He likes to race and this time, since Fraley had recent knee surgery, Rob was going the distance to just short of the finish line when Bruce would get it and take it the required distance to get the points. The day before the race MacCachren was fussing over the car like it was his own, ana it is an immaculate 5-1600 built by Fraley in the Barbary Coast shop where he maintains their cars. Rob started off quick and got quicker, setting fast lap of the race at 54:22 on the last lap even with the stop for the driver change and had no troubles. Their four lap time was more than a minute faster than that of the Class 9 winner. Maybe this team have scared others away from the class. Bruce is second 0 1 A on points. But Kevin and David Streety gave it the old college try, had very consistent and quick laps in finishing second. The Sportsman Buggy class continues to get more competi-tive. Five cars started and four were still running well at the checkered flag. The Sportsman classes also had just four laps to cover. The wire to wfre winners who started with a pair of 59 minute laps, then slowed, a tad, were Bill Keena, Pat Tighe and Mike Spina. Spina is a former 1-2-1600 champion who has gone dwarf car racing. The car says Pre-runner on the side and lists Keith Underwood as the sponsor. Runner up honors went to Ed Dunn and Michael Lee Tucker and others. They had no serious troubles, ran good lap times and were 13 minutes back at the flag. Jack Bassett and family, Steve Ogle and Tommy Bradley Jr. were third with an hour time loss on the first lap but set fast lap for the class at 58:20 on lap 3, then did a 59: 19 on lap 4 to take third. The Jay and Jim Shain and Darwin Parsons team saw Jay have a head-on with a mountain on lap 3, but they got the car back together, and let the 'old man' drive it in for a fourth pla~e finish. Jack Clinken-beard and Michael Snedeker only got about five miles done on the first lap when a lower i:ontrol arm broke, the end of the race for them. The final class starting were the pair of Sportsman Trucks. The just completed Honky Tonk Racing truck of T any Leonard and Steve Westlund got in one good lap before the Midnight Moat Monsters ate their machine and spoiled their fun. Barry Slatter and Dennis Thorn went the distance in quick time to take the class victory in their Coolex Ford Ranger. It was still dark, but well into Sunday morning when we left the track to get a few hours sleep before driving back to Henderson and the Lonesome Dove for the Awards breakfast scheduled for 10:00 a .m . At that time the results, lap by lap, were already done, printed and available to anyone who wanted a copy and on the back side of the same paper the up to date through the Midnight Special points were also listed in great detail. It seems strange that other promoters can't seem to manage results as well, but maybe they don't have Sunday morning access to a copy machine.

MICKEY THOMPSON ENTERTAINMENT GROUP Glen Helen Fun Race II By Carol 'Scoop' Clark Phot.os: Trackside Phot.o Inc./Dave Clark Bill Goshen had close to a perfect day, in fact it couldn't have been a better result. Driving his Super 1600 stadium car he won both stadium motos and both desert course motos in class and overall. This event was most iQteresting idea here. There is the normal the people that did turn out, put for this ·novice reporter. I know . "stadium" type course here as on a terrific show and it looked and understand Desert Off Road well as the longer "desert" course. like they were having a ball. It isn't Racing very well, I guess I should So participants can run one or the too often that some of these guys considering how long I've been other or both if they so choose. and gals get to actually put on a involved in it in some manner. With this track located where it show, this is definitely the time to ut this Stadium/Desert stuff is a is, it would almost be sinful not to show your stuff. little confusing to me. utilize it for this type of event. In the Sportsman Super 1600 In talking with Tony Gardea, he Even if it is hot, there are lots of class there were two entries, told me that the MTEG group trees to sit under and get out of Roger Stein and Bill Goshen for thought this would be a good way the elements, refreshment stands . the stadium course segment. for people to come and bring their to take care of your food and There were 5 vehicles on the toys and have fun for a pretty drink wants and needs, as well as a course, which were combined reasonable fee. The guys that souvenier stand to get your racing classes of the Super 1600s, a 112-normall y race the Mickey T'Shirts. Camping and picniking 1600 driven by Larry Watson, a Thompson series could get in are also available, so I ask you, 900 driven by Warren Messick some practice and seat time in what more could you ask for??? and a Sport Utility truck, driven their vehicles and the guys that Racing began about 1 :00 PM by Linda Rae Lewis. just want to come out and play on Sunday after all the classes got I only got to talk to the overall and have a fun day with family in a little practice time. The turn winners of each heat race, so Bill and friends, can do that. So I out in each class was not too good Goshen wa~ the one to take the think they have got a very winning and that is really too bad because win in the stadium as well as the Paul Borio was third in the first heat but won the second five car heat in 1-1600 class on the desert course, and took the class trophy with the win. desert portions of the events. Bill is one of the regular MTEG racers that wanted to get out and have some fun and get in some practice. He says he's been doing this for about 8 years now and loves every minute of it. He is the 43 year old Grandfather of 2 and his wife thinks he's nuts or going through his second childhood, but she stands by him and helps if she can. Bill says this closed course kind of racing is·a little more intense, but the adrenalin starts pumping when you have the wheel to wheel type of racing going on and it just makes it a good test of driving ability and vehicle prep and it is a ball... The other 4 drivers mentioned above, took the wins also, as they /--vc··,f,:1.;/·· Former desert racing champion Larry Watson won both stadium motos in the 1-1600 Mirage, but oddly enough was fifth in the pair of desert course motos, perhaps with car troubles. Bob and John Beyer bested th'ree other Stock Mini trucks on the desert course and won the first heat, then took second in the final but got the class win on points scoring. were the only ones in their classes, but they all want the rest of the guys to bring their toys and come out and give them some competi-tion. In the desert portion of this class's race, Bill Goshen was the only entrant and, of course, the winner in the Super 1600 class, but there were 5 racers in the 112-1600 class, Glenn Neese, Kyle Vestermark, Larry Watson and the Borio brothers, Steve and Paul. Paul Borio pulled off the win in this segment. I was pleasantly surprised to run into some familiar faces in the pit ·area, they were the "James Gang Racing Team". James Hall and his Father James Hall used to run a 69 Bronco in the desert series a while back, but after putting a bazillion miles on the old girl, they decided to retire her, before she fell apart on them. She had been a real work horse in her day and they did not want to take a chance on destroying their old friend, so they cleaned her up real good and park her proudly in James M's shop. They have built a new race truck with the help of Ecology Auto Wrecking, Rancho Suspension and other sponsors to be named later, because I blew it and did not write them down. The truck had about 15 minutes on it when James ran the first heat of the day for the combined classes of Stock Full Size, which was the James Gang Ford truck, Stock Mini, which consisted of Glen Cohen and Tim Serviss in #1500, Bobby and John Beyer in #1511, Jerry Beall Jr. and Ron Eaton in # 11, Dan Groff and Annie Drake in #761 and the Class 6 entry of Paul Strong and Scott Knutson in #650 which was a somewhat modified American Motors Pacer I believe. The show these guys put on was pretty impressive and brought out a lot of cheers from the spectators; they were having fun racing and it showed. James Michael Hall took the win in his class as he was the class, Bob Beyer won in the Stock Mini class and Paul Strong took first in Class 6. In the 5-1600 class there were only two racers, Kathy Fay in #595 and Mario Bustamanto in #559. Mario took the win, but Kathy gave him a run for his money and really made him work for it. · Roger Lord, an old off road racer from the desert, entered his Class 1 car in hopes of luring some of his buddies out to have fun. Roger says he has been out of off roading for over 2 years, but Warren Messick was all alone in stadium Class 9 and charging the bumps and jumps on the stadium course with a swing axle car deserves a winning trophy. Linda Rae Lewis borrowed her husband Tim's stadium racing Jeep and ran the Sport Utility class, taking the victory home to Cathedral City, CA. Paul Strong and Scott Kalutson revived a former desert racing AMC Pacer, added a wild body, and ran in Class 6 desert course, the only one and a winner. Page 34 October 1993 DustyTimes

the bug is starting to get to him again and he thinks this series may be the way to go, with the close to home location, the reasonable entry fees and the great amount of fun to be had. Th is doesn't disrupt-the family's entiie weekend, just one day and still you are home in less than an hour. Jack Zandbergen who was the lone Class 11 entry, naturally won the class but I did not get to talk to him the day of the race, but luckily he called me at home and gave me a brief run down of his off road career. He's raced since 70 or 71 and started in the 5-1600 series, but wasn't able to do much good and after much thought, decided to switch to Class 11, which seemed to be the right move. In 1989 he got second in class in the Baja 1000, Ensenada to LaPaz and got a first at the Mint 400 and has had a great time with this class. He really wishes he could get some more Class 11 drivers to come out to play in'all the different race series, this one is really fun. Jack was a celebrity for a day. At Glen Helen, kids wanted his autograph and pictures of him . , ;, , ,/':Y. . The lone Class 11 entry of Jack and Tim Zandbergen was a crowd favorite, and they raced right along to entertain and earn their trophy for first place. and the car. As has happened in were getting.

Art managed to pull off the win in this segment, but he was not the first to finish the race, so he went to the pits without being interviewed. There were other classes in the same heat and just the overall finisher was sent to the press box, so that is the reason I didn't get to see everyone. The Mini Mags always put on a good show and they, as a whole, are a great crowd pleaser. They look like " little" race cars, but they can really get out and boogie. I don't know what their top speed is but it is pretty fast. Kirk McDaniel was the first place finisher out of 5 other racers. He had a ,~ The only stock full size class entry was the James Hall truck on the desert course. but they ran the new rig hard for a test and took home a trophy too. Mario Bustamanto won both motos over Kathy Fay in Desert Class 5-1600, but this class· didn't run the super tight stadium course at Glen Helen. Bill Goshen looks fresh and ready for more, after winning his fourth moto of the day, getting good action with Roger Lord on the Desert course.

At Glen Helen the MTEG front straight by the grandstands is part of both the stadium course and the desert course, so they always come past the spectators. Roger Lord came back after two years off to run his Class 1 car, but his was the only one, but he had fun anyhow and hopes more come out in August. Art Velasco hops over a jump getting the checkered flag for his victory in Desert Class 9. He won both heats in that section of Class 9 action. Quad Pro's, we have Jesse Wozniak, Kory Ellis, Doug Gilham, Steve Beilman, Mike Mierau and Jason Greenhaw. Doug.Gilham took the honors in this event. For the Superlite event we had John Sarna, Scott Klaers, Doug Goodenough, Stacy Fay, Andrew Buck, Brady Stiles and Chris Urquidez. Andrew Buck took the lead on the second turn of the 6 lap race and kept it there. He used to race Quads and decided to try something different, this is his first race in this car and he thinks this will be the way to go from now on. He kind of likes having that cage around him. Jeff Hoskins and company hauled in from Brawley to race his FRT champion Class 7 Ford, and Jeff won both desert heats, overall, for his trophy. Chris Morgan and Todd Sunvold were second in the first moto, but won the second and won top honors in Desert Class 7S driving their newish Toyota. In the Pilot/ Desert event there were 9 entrants, Todd Jespersen, Mike Vandeburgh, Troy Lind-horst, Joe Merciz, Tony Osuch, Clint Wolsey, Mark Grandburg and Neil Affinitto. Troy Lind-horst won this event. ~ little trouble at the beginning, the motor wasn't running right, but then he got the bugs out and took off to first place. Kirk said he had a good day because the others crashed and he cruised. His fellow competitors in this class were Mike Thurman, Yoshi Ogasawara, Steve Bristing and Chris Garrett. The 7 trucks and the 7Ss were combined also and in 7S we had Chris Morgan and Todd Sunvold in #63 and Dean Williams and Brenda Gillette in #734. Chris and Todd took the win here and Jeff Hoskins and Ronnie Gibson his co-driver, were the only Class 7 racers so they did take the win, but they put on one hell of a good show for the fans. Jeff says he has been a Fudpucker racer and thought he'd just try something different for a change, this is his first time at Glen Helen and he and Ronnie are having a great time and plan to be back. In the Quad Pro class there were 7 racers, #20 Steve Beilman, #33 Jesse W ozniak, #36 Mike Mieran, #53 Kory Ellis, #6 Doug Eichner, # 18 Jerry Hozen and #40 Jason Greenhaw. Doug Eichner pulled off the win in this class and I did get about 30 seconds to talk to him. I found out that he is another one of the regular MTEG racers and he is currently first in points in the series. He likes the MTEG series a lot but also does some desert racing once in a while. Next we have the Quad Intermediate and Beginners. They were Dan Powell #37P, Jeff Nolte #34, Tony Costantino #55X and Ken Curtis #133. These were the intermediate fellows and Dan Powell took the win here. In the Beginner class, there were only 2 en tries, Jason Van Groningen # 13 and Michael Nixon #84. Mike pulled off the win here and to me they both looked like profes-sionals and did a great job. The Ultra Light or Pilot Class had a total of 9 racers, Todd Jesperson #66, Tony Osuch #22, Joe Mercier #57, Mike Vande-burgh, Clint Wolsey #7, Troy Lindhurst #71, Neil Affinito #1 and Mark Granberg #698. Todd Jesperson took the win here. The Superlite Odysseys also had a good turnout. Brady Stiles, Scott Klaers, Don Archibald, Andrew Buck, Stacy Fay, Chris Urquidez, Keith Ehlers and John Sarna. Scott Klaers won the event with his skill as well as despera-tion to get in front of everyone so he would not get any more large chunks of mud thrown in his eyes. I believe his tear-offs broke and he had to put face shield up in order to see an.-i ne just got bombarded Scott Klaers, who runs the Stadium Series in Superlites was out getting a little seat time on the stadium course and won over seven other little cars, both heats. with mud. He loves the track here · at Glen Helen, but started racing in Ventura and thinks this is really the way to go. He definitely wanted to thank his sponsor, Natures Recipe for all their help. Next we have the Quad Intermediates and Beginners for .the Desert portion of the race. In the intermediates we have Tony Costantino, Jeff Nolte and Dan Powell. In this event, Tony Costantino took first place. In the Beginners there were Mike Reina, Ken Powell,Jason Von Groninye and Mike Nixon. The latter took the win. In the Desert portion for the By the time this gets to you, my son Eric will have had his first ever official race, thanks to James M. Hall and his Dad James E. Hall. He will be riding in the Ecology Auto Wrecking sponsored truck after some seat time this last Saturday. He says this truck is not like he thought it would be for a Stone Stock Full Size truck, he had a ball and is looking forward to giving me his story after the August 22nd race. See you all there. Despite this spectacular nose dive Andrew Buck, #5, came back to take a first and a second in Desert Superlites and win the class. Brady Stiles avoided the landing and finished second in the class. Five Mini Mags came out to play at Glen Helen, and Kirk McDaniel won the Desert section by winning the first heat and taking third in the second. Troy Lindhorst put together a second and a third in the heats to take the win in Desert class Pilot action over eight other of these popular and less expensive race cars. SuperLite winner Scott Klaers grins as 'Scoop' Clark writes it all down and 'Flash' Bunce/ does the prompting. Scott said it was neat having a no pressure day to go racing for fun.

-Earl Roberts flew his way around the course right into the victory in the Vet Class and his experience and skill carried him to second overall too. Jason Corfman turned out to be the class of the 125cc group, making a mid-race charge that not only got him the class win, but a fine third overall. Novice Colby Groom stole the show in quad action, slicing through the.field like a pro and Colby finished a great fifth overall in the entire A TV action.

On Lake Superstition, CA last May it was a traditional Sweet-hearts start with a dead engine, straddling the front tire, followed by a long drag race across Lake Superstition. There were many lines heading towards Check 1. Joey Lane on a KX 250 and Vet racer "Wild Bill McNeer on a CR500 launched their attack straight down the course. Just when it looked like they would be first to Check 1, Craig Smith's KX 250 swept in from the side and was on his way to a wire to wire win.

First it was the Earl "of Mexicali" Roberts, followed by Dan Worley, and John Keifer. Joey Lane begrudg-ing! y gave up second to Earl Roberts but was firmly entrench-ed in third until his bike went boom -end of race. The 125 race turned out to be a battle between Jason Corfman and Robert Pra yther. Justin Hollmann had been expected to challenge, however a fouled plug on the start line left him mired deep in the pack. Prayther led the first lap with Corfman only a heartbeat behind. After watching Prayther's line Corfman lit up the desert with a fantastic charge. His momentum carried him all the way to third overall. Sandwiched between him and Prayther was Dan Worley, second Vet. Billy McClintock finished second 250. It was not a good race for the Open bikes unless you were a Vet. Roger Robinson not only won the Open class, he was also the first Amateur. Dewey Belew, coming off an injury was second with Bill Adsit third Open. The Senior Class was won once again by Pat "Flatpan" Flanagan. The defend-ing champion moved through the ranks and won going away. Second and third seniors were decided on the last burst towards the checkered flag. Terry Devore and Tom Nolan had swapped positions all race. Finally on the next to the last lap Terry made his move and put a few riders between himself and Nolan. Coming around the last turn with only a quarter mile drag left Devore looked behind to see how much of a lead he had and to his surprise it was none. Nolan was alongside and on the gas. Terry Devore bounced and bobbled while Tom Nolan scooted to the checkered flag, second Senior and the bragging rights all the way home. Bob Thompson won the Super Senior Class. The' first Novice honor went to Dean Yale on a 250. In the A TV action Ben -Sch-limme and Steve Mamer, both on Honda 250s, were the cream of the crop today with Jimmy Summers from Needles a solid third. Summers was third after one lap and held it until the checkered flag. While there were battles in front and behind him, he was never seriously challenged for third place. However out front it was a different story. Mamer October 1993 and Schlimme always seemed close enough that you could throw a blanket over both of them at any one time. Ben Schlimme sneaked around Mamer on lap 3. Every once in a while Schlimme could put a bike between them, however his lead was not what you could call comfortable. Finally a flai: tire took the wind out of Mamer's charge and Ben Schlimme went on to capture the overall ATV honors finishing seventh overall. Positions four through eight were up for grabs all race. "Qjk" Vic Bruckmann couldn't hold off Mike Cafro who in turn had to hold off a furious charge by Novice Colbey Groom. Cafro moved into fourth by lap 2 while Bruckmann, Martin, McNeer, Todd Dunlavey and Marc Spaeth danced with each other. However, it was the excellent ride of Colbey Groom that stole the show. Starting in the Novice line he weaved his way through the field of expert and amateur racers to finish fifth overall. Martin McNeer's ATV died at home check opening the door through which rode Dunlavey, Sruck-mann and finally Marc Spaeth. Rob Niemla won the Vet Class and Volker Bruckmann won the Senior Class. The DesertLites had quite a race, and Stu Peace was in heaven. This was a Sweetheart of a course for him, fast, flat and his was the first DesertLite. Stu Peace popped into Check 1 seconds in front of Steve Fenton. But by the time they reached Check 2 Stu was stuck all alone in first place. Fenton has a new car and some of the bugs still need to be worked out. Today he had left his can of Raid at home and the race was all Peace's. Paul "Sky" King set sail like there was no tomorrow and there almost wasn't. King found more trees than Bryan Saasta to run into and finally the DesertLite gave up the ghost leaving Paul King to push it to the finish ·line. John Shultz hung around in third place for many laps until his ship ran aground leaving him looking for a rescue party. Meanwhile Bryan Saasta was stopping at all the checks to _ admire the beautiful scenery. He almost stopped once too often as his son James "Hollywood" Saasta rushed by leaving Bryan to hot foot it for home check to win the 360 class by an eyelash. Art Gibbs just kept going and going and going and won the PilotLite class. Ben Schlimme and Steve Mamer had their Honda A TVs in a visual race most of the time, but Schlimme got a bit of a lead on lap 3 and he kept that lead to win overall in the A TV class and was also seventh overall. Stu Peace led the Desert Lite class from the first checkpoint, then by seconds; his competition faded on the fast course and Peace won the Division overall. Page 37

SCCA Prescott Forest National Rally By John Elkin Photos: T rackside Phot.o Inc. Despite having to change to a hastily located turbo before the start, and starting late at that, Paul Choiniere and Jeff Becker drove the Audi Coupe S-2 to the front and won overall and the Open Class points. While her baby has lunch, a mother cow watches the rally cars zoom past on a high mountain meadow trail in the Prescott, Arizona area. If you turn the Wayback Machine to April of this year the Prescott Forest Rally was supposed to be round #2 of the Subaru PRO Rally Champion, ship, sanctioned by the Sports Car Club of America. However, biblical rains ravaged the southw, est and the stage roads. Organizers Rob Cherry and Jeff Hendricks, both accomplished rallyists, made the smart move to postpone the event until the end of July to give the roads a chance to be graded and manicured. So now return to present day: Prescott is now round four of the championship, the temperature is 25 degrees .h<?t, ter and the roads still showed the effects of the rains. Not all the stages were rough, some were quite pleasant to drive, but others were cut short because of the roughness, or transited, more on that later. Running con, current with the National would be two Divisional rallies. The pre,rally happenings were rather sedate compared to the past couple of events, although there was news abounding through the headquarters at the Sheraton Hotel, located high on a hill overlooking the town of Pres, cott, Arizona. News had broken that Subaru would be leaving us as Todd Bawden and Cal Coatsworth took first in GT and fifth overall in the National Rally, and first overall in the Friday Divisional as well as thfrd overall in the Saturday Divisional in the Mitsubishi Eclipse. ---- -- . - ---------Whether you're on a chase crew, a racer or a 4WD enthusiast, the Rod Hall off-road driving school can help you be your best!

Kyoichi Takaori enlisted a native Arizona navigator Ken Cassidy and "Tony" drove his Mitsubishi to a sparkling victory in Group A in the Ga/ant and finished fourth overall in the National. News also arose about the Sep, tember Heart of Maine Rally being cancelled due to slow com, ing road permissions; with one less event in the championship this changed some peoples strate, gies to garner points. Jeff Zwart and Tony Sircombe had returned to the States from pacenoting the New Zealand round of the World Rally Championship, just to run this event and then were hopping the next plane back to Kiwiland to finish the job. On Friday afternoon the cars lined up to start the rally from the parking area of the Sheraton. Tonight the teams would traverse four stages and then return and finish the final six on Saturday afternoon and evening. The weather hovered in the 90s as 21 rally crews put on their nomex, filled water bottles and set out to test their cars, their own personal conditioning and their deo, dorants. Just before the start of the Pare Expose one top team, Paul Choi, niere/ Jeff Becker found the Audi Quattro S,2 had a turbo problem, and the Libra team had no spare. · A trip to the local auto dismantler turned up a Audi 5000 turbo, problem was it does not fit the new 20 valve engine. Within a couple of hours the resourceful Libra Racing crew had fashioned and plumbed the mismatched turbo into. the engine bay and crossed their fingers. With the extra time needed the team paid the $100 fine for missing the Pare Expose and were a bit late getting started, taking a 40 second penalty going into the first control. This round of the Subaru Championship would comprise ten total stages spread over two days and a total of 118 stage miles.

Stage one was a real rough affair, nearly eleven miles long and the first eight miles was a tight, twisty, rock strewn road that took it's toll on tires. It is known as the old railroad grade and has a dubious reputation with divisional competitors who have run Prescott for years. Paul Choiniere/Jeff Becker dis, regarded the rough and tumble conditions and their 40 second deficit and their untried turbo to storm into the lead in the Open Class and overall in the first stages. The Remy sponsored Audi needed some minor turbo adjustments on its way to the overall win and giving the car a perfect record this season (John Buffum won with the car at the season opener in Washington State while Paul was awaiting his wife's delivery of another child.) Choiniere/Becker notched the win by five minutes over the low slung Valvoline Porsche Carrera 4 of Jeff Zwart/Tony Sircombe. The Porsche reported little trou, ble except for ground clearance over the rough roads.

In the Group A ranks the Sub-aru effort from Chad DiMar-co/ Eric Hauge led through the sixth stage and were pushing Choiniere/ Becker very hard for the overall win when on stage seven the Subaru hit a rock, flat-ting a tire and causing brake caliper damage to the right front and the strut. Also some internal engine damage to the bearings caused them to run the remaining two stages at a reduced rate. Still the team netted a second overall Friday night. Getting used to rally-ing American style can sometimes take a "if you can't beat them join them" attitude. Kyoichi "Tony" Takaori took along Arizona native rally navigator Ken Cassidy and the pair took the Mitsubishi Galant into not only the Group A win but a very respectable fourth overall. The Japanese contingent will be back in force at the Ojibwe event. The Production GT class battle was an up and down affair for the rookie team ofT odd Bawden/ Cal Coatsworth and their Norco Mit-subishi, Mitsubishi Eclipse. While the pair did gain the victory in the end it did notlook that way starting the second day when the pair got two flats in the first day's stage.

In the final three stages Bawden/Coats-worth clawed their way through the stages and narrowly regained the lead for the win. Two notable DNF's changed the complexion of the rally in the first stage.

On Friday night the first four stages of the National event would count as a Lo-efficient two rally, while on Saturday the remaining five stages would count as a co-efficient three rally. It was sche-duled for six stages but one would be transited for safety reasons. There were pre-rally happen-ings and surprises, Anton Musev returned to our sport in his Sub-aru RX recently purchased from Luis Silva. Tony Chavez shocked many by renting the Arrow of Lon Peterson as Chavez' 510 could not be completed in time. Another returnee, or pair of returnees to the California Rally Series were Heinz Heinrich and Lynette Allison, debuting an ex-DiMarco Subaru RX four door. Twenty-six teams took the green flag from the Sheraton Resort in Prescott to tackle four very chal-lenging stages in the Prescott Forest and Chino Valley. In the four wheel drive open class nine starters made this the biggest showing for the class so far. However only three would finish this first night. Todd Baw-den/ Cal Coatsworth took their Mitsubishi Eclipse and gave quite a driving school as they pulled off the overall and class win. The class win coming six minutes ahead of the Cooper Tire Chev-rolet S-10 of Ken Stewart/Ralph Starr. The Chevy edged the Sub-aru of Anton Musev/Wayne Engen by nearly a minute as Anton and Wayne try to figure out the style needed for four October 1993 B J and Stuart Beal had broken on Friday in the National, made repairs and came back to win the Saturday Divisional overall in the Mazda 323 and were first 4WD Open Class car as well. wheel drive rallying. Among the DNF's was the Heinrich/ Allison Subaru which lost a head gasket. The Gibeault/ Mathes Subaru sucked a lifter through the engine while Peter-son/Gutzmann had a meltdown in the central core of their Eclipse. However it is Mazda PR man Mitch McCullough and HKS's Scott Webb who took a tumble down the mountain side in the Mazda 323GTX which captured everyones attention. Two wheel drive open class was a little light on the entry with just 12 cars, but it was very competi-tive. Usually when a CRS compet-itor takes the trip to Washington to run a rally he or she can count on being lucky to crack the top five, and usually vice versa for them, but just as recently we have been doing better up there, they have now scored a similar victory as Sam Bryan/Mark Simons took their Saab 99 to the class win and second overall. The northern pair edged our own Bill Malik/Roine Anderson in a Volvo by over a minute. 510 Master Mike Whitman/ Kevin Linville brought out the New Mexico based Datsun and placed third, another minute back, the former Prescott resident was hoping for a better placing but one can't be too choosy when running on three and a half cylinders. Techmeister Ron Wood and Kelly Walsh brought the VW home fourth in class after a rash of flats that plagued most the field. An uncharacteristic fifth place was recorded by Dan Hook and John Moore in the aged Toy-ota Celka. The stock class was equally light with only six turning out for the fray. Norberto Gomez/ Jorge Facio definitely have got the Toy, ota sorted out as they stormed into the lead early and held it to the end of the rally, keeping a con-stant fifteen second margin on the Shumakers, Tony and Liz in their Toyo Tire shod Mitsubishi Eclipse. As a rookie it is known that you must finish rallies, com-pile seat time and then you get better. It seems Bob Scott/Chris Smith have found the fruits of that logic as they motored into third by staying out of trouble. Fourth, and the final finisher was Dennis Chizma/Robert Kalb, recent off road racing transplants who are dialing their VW Rabbit · into the rigors of rallying. As the finishers came back to the hotel word started filtering in about the carnage on stage one. Ken Stewart and Ralph Starr win a lot of rallies in the southwest regions, and their Chevy S-10 Blazer was 2nd 4Wo· Open on Friday, 7th overall and 3rd 4WD Open on Saturday, 8th overall in the Divisionals.

Twenty-four of the Div-isional teams made it back to the Pare Expose for the two o'clock start time. A refugee from the National competition, B.J. and Stuart Beal had broken the day before in the first stage and while they could not continue racing their Mazda they opted to make the most of the trip from Colorado and rally the Saturday divisional.

The two wheel drive open class again fell to the Washington on-s la ugh t as Bryan/Simons con-tinued to prove that old Saabs are the best Saabs taking a minute and a half victory over the Whitman/ Linville Datsun 510. Ron Wood/ Kelly Walsh were much more on track today with a third place for the VW Scirocco edging Tony Chavez/Jose Soria who ran the Plymouth Arrow of Lon Peter-son. The Chavez/Soria team failed to finish the Friday event because of a broken tie rod end, luckily Toyota tie rods fit and Dan Hook rescued the team. Malik/ Anderson fell to fifth today just ahead of the hastily rebuilt Saab of Carl Jarde-vall/ Andres Karlsson who had to rebuild everything after a crash on Friday in the third stage. The stock class victor from Fri-day, Norberto Gomez/Jorge Facio had terrible luck in the first stage of the day as a flapping flat tire took out the Corolla's fen-derwell and the electrical system, stranding the pair high on a ridge and out of the rally. After a disas-terous day on Friday Harris Done/Larry Scott mounted a fan-tastic come back in the RX7 and ravaged the field by four minutes. Tony and Liz Shumaker played the consistency game and finished second again with the Eclipse. Dennis Chizma/Robert Kalb had a better day and pulled out the third place finish just ahead of Ken White/ Adrian Crane, Mit-subishi truck. Yesterday's third place finishers Bob Scott/Chris Smith took a DNF for the event after a nasty rollover on stage one involving a big rock. Everybody who finished the event deserved something and while there were not trophies for all the finishers we could hand out a few awards here.

Although it was very dry and dusty, hanging dust was of little concern as a stiff southerly wind was blowing, giving some relief from the 90 plus degree heat and high humidity.

The Don Gage Auto Service backed Dodge Daytona driven by Garen Shrader and Steve Scott from the Memphis area was sitting pretty in second place after three stages when the engine decided to quit running and then packed it in. They put on a good show at the finish of stage 2 where they went off the road and into the grass, completing a 360 degree turn after the flying finish, and gathered it all back up before reaching the time car. Fortun-. ately, their in car camera was running! Tom Hanlon did not start in his Saab. By Datie Thomas Five Mazda RX-7s, one Jeep Cherokee, one Toyota Celica, one Dodga Daytona, and one Saab 99 towed to Paris, Texas to compete on the smooth gravel roads of the Camp Maxey National Guard base on the third of July. The coefficient three Divisional Pro Rally was won by Dave Thomas of St. Charles, MO and Rob Logue of Garland, TX in an RX-7 sponsored by Rotary Perform-ance and Uni Filter. They won all but the last stage of the 83 .3 stage mile rally, averaging nearly 60 miles an hour. Arkansawyers Jim Dale and novice co-driver Scott Justus were not quite three minutes back in the "RX-7 Heaven" RX-7. The father ~nd DustyTimes son team from Lawrenceville, GA, Robert and Billy Waits were another four minutes back in another RX-7. These two teams tied for first on the last stage of the rally, with Thomas/Logue "coasting" along on their lead, only two minutes off the pace, despite two blown shocks on the front. West Texans James Cook and defending SW-Div co-driver Champion Doug Otoupal put in their best finish ever at fourth overall in another RX-7, putting Doug in the hunt for a repeat of the Southwest Division co-drivers title. Arthur "Joey" Odero-Jowi and Peter "Ninja" Njenga brought their Toyota Celica home in fifth, not bad for Joey's second rally and Ninjas' first ever. In rounding out the top five, the Texans also won the Novice Class. The only other finisher was the husband and wife team of Karen Burrows and Ken Cassidy from Mesa, AZ, in another Mazda RX-7. It is interesting to note that all of the cars which finished were manu-factured in Japan, in a rally on the Fourth ofJuly weekend. Hmmm. Things got under way at ten in the morning on Saturday with a Fourth of July parade through downtown Paris, a request by the Paris Chamber of Commerce. This was a fairly large parade, with horses (of course in Texas), October 1993 Dick Paddock and Karen Finnerty drove the Jeep Cherokee from Ohio and brought only one spare tire, which was pressed into Page 4t

RALLY YPF ARGENTINA 1993 Juha Kankkunen Wins For Toyota Text & Photos: Martin Holmes Juha Kankkunen and Nicky Grist took the lead on the first stage, were never headed on stage times, enjoyed dust free running and won the rally in the Toyota Celica Turbo 4WD by almost two minutes. On only his second appearance at this event, Juha Kankkunen snatched the lead on the very first stage of the Rally Argentina, and took full advantage of dusty conditions to control the event from there onwards. His win enabled Toyota to retake the lead in the World Makes' Champion-ship on their sixth out of ten permitted participations, but Ford still leads the Drivers' Series with Miki Biasion, but now Kankkunen is only three points West Coast Distributor fOff HEWLAND OFF ROAD GEARS ALL OUR PRICE $695.00 GEARS AVAILABLE SEPARATELY Per Set 2 Ratio's Available NEW RATIOS AVAILABLE Valley Performance 3700 Mead Ave. Las Vegas, NV 89102 7D'l/B73-1 re2 McKenzie Performance Products · ·· 2366 East Orangethorpe Anaheim, CA 92800 714/441-1212 DEALER INQUIRIES INVITED gc42 I behind. Toyota teammate Didier Auriol had an unhappy event, suffering gear selection and then clutch troubles. The delays put him back in the dust of his rivals and he never recovered. This was Toyota's 30th win on a World Championship Rally. It was Kankkunen's first rally with codriver Nicky Grist, with whom he was paired only nine days before the event and his first for nearly eight years without his regular partner Juha Piironen. Mohammed Bin Sulayem won the Group N category in front of Portuguese driver Antonio Coutinho in a similar Ford, the first time the Dubai driver has even finished in an Escort. In 'Formula 2' Gabriel Raies dominated the event. Renault withstood the onslaught of the new Fiat cars and for the ninth year running were the best locally produced car at the finish. Christine Driano finished 21st and won her class, but without scoring points towards the Ladies title. This means she has now finished three of the necessary five events to enable her to become Ladies' Champion. Miki Biasion and Tiziano Siviero held up Ford's honor with a strong second place and Biasion has taken the lead by three points in the driver's point championship. Three works teams went to Argentina, Toyota, Ford and I Lancia/ Jolly Club. This was the first World Championship entry from Ford in South America and the first outside Europe since 1987, with Miki Biasion and a similar Group A Escort for Carlos Menem Jr., the President's son entered by Mike Little Prepara-tions. The Lancias were for Carlos Sainz and Gustavo Trelles and Toyota entered two new Celica Turbo 4WDs for Juha Kank-kunen and Didier Auriol. There was a nasty shock for Toyota when Kankkunen 's long time codriver Juha Piironen collapsed in his hotel nine days before the start with a brain hemorrhage. Nicky Grist was enlisted at short notice to take his place. After two operations Piironen, in the same hospital which treated Ari Vatanen after his near fatal 1985 accident, was reported recently to be lucid, his speech just fine, but with some paralysis, which is common. He is reported to be eating and joking as normal with visitors, and should be back in Finland by the time you read this, continuing his recuperation. Argentina was to be the 50th World Championship Rally for Auriol, a landmark for the man who had a record breaking sixth win in the same season last year, but who has not yet been Champion. Jorge Recalde of Argentina did not have a ride going in but ended up driving a Group N Lancia from Top Run Racing. Recalde was the first casualty of rule changes which now stop competitors running Group A cars in training. He had to train in a more stock version of the rally car. There were 70 cars entered in 'Formula 2', a record· no doubt.

In order fo become Ladies Champion she must finish five times in the year and so far out of four starts she had finished only twice. From the Ukraine came something quite unusual; no fewer than five Zaporojhets ("Poor Man's Lada") cars with 1100cc engines, the first time such a model has been run on a World Champion-ship Rally. After a difficult year with the rally based at the northern town of Tucuman, the Rally Argentina was again run in. the popular Cordoba region. To fulfill political obligations the start remained at Tucuman where the scrutineering, start and first special stage were held. But on the second day the action moved south. Cordoba represents the heartland of Argentinian rally sport; entries were even greater this year than in the mid '80s when low production Group N cars were admitted. Most of the top drivers come from that region, the stages have a history that stretches back to the wartime days of city to city road racing, and the gravel has changed little over the years. For tire engineers the wintry conditions presented their own challenge as surface temperatures rise uniquely quickly each morning. 86 cars started Etape 1 but there had been pre-event drama for Austrian driver Stefan Reininger who had his Group N Subaru Legacy crashed by co-driver Kenyan Simon Young. Young discovered that not all cars use headlights at night, and rolled off the road to avoid a head on crash. A few days earlier Reininger found his rally car gone from a street in Cordoba. He reported it stolen to the police who had taken it because it had been badly parked! Two of the cars from the Ukraine were still DustyTirncs

The engine of the Lancia of World Champion Carlos Sainz blew up just as he came to the finish of the opening stage and one more chapter in the Span-iard's dreadful 1993 season was already written. There was no obvious reason, but the mechan-ics thought the problem to be electronically originated. Carlos left Tucuman immediately, but his troubles were still not over. When he reached Buenos Aires he found he had lost his passport and could not leave the country. While the mood among the teams was despondent over the enforced absence of Juha Piironen, Kankkunen did him proud and took the lead with a brand-new codriver! Without the company, friendship and common language of his regular partner Kankkunen had a point to prove. Three hours before dawn after the overnight halt, the remaining cars left Tucuman for the drive down south. U ndeterred that his teamma te Auriol was badly delayed during the day by gearbox troub le, Kankkunen gradually pulled ahead, reaching Cordoba 37 seconds ahead of Biasion. After lying second, three seconds behind the leader, Auriol's troubles started on stage 4 when he could not select third or fourth gear. On stage 5 he heard a big bang and found he had lost fifth as well. .He drove the next three stages in second gear, suffering from the new rule this year that gearboxes can only be changed at the end of the day, which was finished the next morning. Biasion had a day of many little troubles. On stage 3 the car misfired after a water crossing. Next stage he broke a shock and then had to drive stage 5 without a rear anti roll bar. Then on stages 6 and 7 he was hampered by the dust of the troubled Auriol Toyota running in front of him. Jolly Club were struggling. After Sainz's retirement, Trelles had handling problems. He finished the day three minutes in front of the delayed Auriol. 1n Group N early leader Jorge Recalde stopped on stage 7. He had already suffered time loss due to a loose turbocharger pipe, and then had broken gearbox linkage. Finally he retired with rear suspension failure. By now Mohammed Bin Sulayem was well ahead, and for a time even ahead of teammate Menem in the Group A car, who had two driveshaft breakages. At the end of the day the two Mike Little Preparations team drivers were lying equal fifth, with the next five places filled by Bolivian drivers in various Nissan and Subaru cars.

VORRA VIRGINIA CITY CLASSIC IOO Don Ger111an Wins Overall In A Jeep While he didn't turn the class fast lap in his Jeep, Don German cleaned the Class 4 field on the rugged trails, had most consistent laps and came home not only winning Class 4, but winning overall. The Virginia City Classic 200, one of the roughest and toughest races in off road racing was held on June 19, 1993. As usual the "' course was a hard one. With all of the weather we had this winter the Ruts were deeper and the Rocks were sharper. There was little doubt in the minds of the Competitors that VC was going to live up to it's reputation, but was it too rough? After a lot of thought, the President of VOR, RA Ed Robinson decided to lower the number of 20 mile laps from 10 to 8. Ed would keep the time limit to finish at 7 hours. This year's race was welcomed by the Delta Saloon. The Virginia City folks were great as they are every year. The field consisted of 62 entrants.

The day began with heat and very little wind making the dust a problem. By the end of the race things were cooling down at least as far as the weather was concerned. The big winner of the day was Don German of Petaluma, CA in his Class 4 single seat Jeep. Don's run was a fast 5:21 :39. With only eight minutes of down time, this race was smooth sailing into the first overall spot for VORRA's Iron Man.

Third overall went to Raymond Fisher of Reno, Nevada in his Class 4, Cylinder Head Exchange sponsored Jeep Hon, cho; it took him 5:41 :48 to finish.

Clayton Scudder and Curtis Clark of Reno, NV in the Precision Plumbing sponsored Scudco and John Smith of Diamond Springs, CA in the Chevy Powered Kong 2 seater were the first two cars to . drag race down the hill. John Smith dropped out on the first lap. Clayton Scudder set the fastest lap of the race with a recorded time of 33:24. Clayton led the class until the fifth lap when he fell victim to a broken steering box mount and was down for two hours. The Scudco was able to come back in to battle but on the eighth lap had a fire in the car and wasn't able to finish within the time limit, coming in 7 :04:31 picking up third in class. All of the Class 2 racers had some type of problem to contend with. Class winner Sam Berri of Arnold, CA in his Tom Martin Logging 2 seat car was down for an hour with front end problems on the first lap but was able to run a klst and furious race the rest of the day, with his times getting faster as the race went on. Sam's finish time was 6:25:05, giving the team their first desert win of the 1993 season. Everett Paul of Grass Valley, California, took second in class with a time of. 6:55:09.

Dale Smith had suspension problems all day and finally dropped off on lap number 6. Ace Bradford took second in class but didn't finish the eighth lap. The team of Happich and Windle of Belmont, CA started strong but would run only one lap of the day. Mike Gust of Diamond Springs, CA had a great first lap but would record the longest lap in class on number two with a 3:31:03 time. Mike would make a third lap but disappear on the fourth. Starting last in class must have been good luck to an extent for Randy Leplante of Portland, OR, running a hard race. The team set fast lap in class with a 37: 16 time. Problems on lap five gave them down time of an hour, Randy was able to come back for laps 6 and 7 but was no where to be found on lap 8 . Having gone further than any of his competitors gave him the win in class. Class 1,2,1600 was the largest pro class at this year's Virginia City Classic 200, with 10 cars starting and six finishers. Bill Webb of Reno, NV and Arden Dennington ofT racy, CA were the first cars off the line in class. Bill Webb had a strong run until falling to the mountain on lap 8.

The longest lap of the day was set by Mike Povey with a 4:50:22 time. His distributor failed, he had to walk 12 miles round trip to make the repair. The only complaint Mike had was that his new boots were killing him. Luckily he has a crew willing to give him the shoes off their feet. Unfortuantely one lap was all Mike made. Raymond Fisher of Sparks, NV ran an even race all day and was able to come home with a second in Class 4 and third overall. Raymond had little down time considering the fact he had power Randy LaPlante came from Portland, OR to race the Virginia City rocks, and they set fast lap for Class 10, lost an hour on lap 5, but came back to go the farthest and fastest and won Class 10.

The only problem experienced by the German T earn was trying to keep the Jeep cooled down on the last laps.

At age 20 Doug is as tall as his more famous dad Don Adams, right, but all the Jeep's sponsors have stuck with him apparently, and the Adams family does enjoy the hill climb type of racing. Ford Probe up in 1:56:26. Gay Smith in his Mustang was four seconds behind after an affair with a rock wall in qualifying. Roger Warden was third.

Jay Lommel had a difficult race and fell off after the fifth lap. Don Bowler of Lakewood, CA took fifth with a 4:35:38 race. Phil McAdon of Folsom, CA would set fast lap in class on the second lap with a 35: 17 time. Phil would make lap 3 but wasn't seen again. Randy Miller took third in class by running a consistent pace finishing a strong 4: 18:35. The Team of O'Callaghan and Robinson of Sacramento, CA were able to snag second place with no down time, and consist-ent laps running a time of 4: 16:52. First in class went to the always strong Mini Mag from the Haas Brother's racing team of Lodi, CA. They ran beyond fast coming in under four hours with a time of 3:59: 16. Needless to say this was on~ happy team at the end of the race. All. the Sportsman Vets deserve congratulations for being out there. Good job guys. Sportsman Novice was the largest cla~s of the day with 18 starters but the attrition rate was unbelievable, only four cars Jim Brady, then Brett Ream were in his shadow.

First in class went to Hooter Meyer of Carmichael, CA in his Baja Bug. Hooter had a hard day, every time I saw him he was flying and missing more of his car. He was able to keep it together well enough to get a winning time of 4: 16:51. Second was taken by the Ghia Monster II driven by Forest Creasy of Folsom, CA. Down time on lap five didn't stop this team from coming back to run a race· of 5:08:23. Spot number 3 went to the team of Fredrick-son and Miguel running a 5:20:00 day. The last finisher in the time limit was Charlie Ketten of Fallon, NV placing fourth in class with his car starting to break apart; Charlie was able to finish with a 5:46:56 time. This year's Virginia City Classic 200 was grueling. We started the day with 62 starters and ended with only 27 finishers. An unexpected cloud burst reapetl havoc with the last finishers as well as pit personnel. The Pro Pit van sunk in the mud on the top of the mountain, and wasn't able to be removed until the following day. Many racers slid around on their last laps, running a course that changed from silt to slime. The next event to be covered will be a new race.

'\Vild Texans'' Take Top Three Places At Bad Dogs Barry Don Callaway cranks it on and kicks up some Texas dust into this corner on his way to the victory in the hotly contested Sportsman Buggy Class. It was a 1-2-3 sweep in the Sportsman class Sunday July 18th at Bad Dogs Off Road Showdown for the Wild Texans Race Team. Barry Don Callaway, Don West-man and Gene Peugh took the top three positions in the main event with some spectacular driving coming from all three particip-ants. Benny Perry of Pearland fought mechanical and traffic troubles all day to end up in the fourth position over a hard charging Greg Durman of Flower Mound for fifth. Mark Rogers, Hank Newton and Mike Melton ran strong in the heat races but had troubles in the main event and settled for sixth, seventh and eighth places. Chad Smith of Mesquite took the overall win in the Amateur ranks of the ATV 4-Wheeler event, putting his Suzuki in the front and never looking back. Ed DeTavenier, also of Mesquite, followed Smith closely for second over Douglas Bebe of Boling for third. Rick Townsend of Arling-ton chased the top three all day but settled for fourth over Garland's Henry "Crash" Castro, taking fifth, all putting on a great race for the crowd. In the Pro A TV action Chad Harris took the win over a very sore Bobby "Pikes Peak" Parr in second. The Odyssey/Pilot cla~s saw Fort Worth's Tim Silence out front of everyone at the checkered flag for first place over a very fast lady from Burleson, Liz Rash. Liz has really improved over the last few months showing style and speed all the way to the winner's · circle. John Myers of Fort Worth and Tim Lee of Dallas finished third and fourth with Kenneth Gordon of Quinlan rounding out the top five. In the PW-50 class, Chance Berg of Cleburne put his Yamaha in close quarters with overall winner Cody Don Callaway for his best performance of the year. Our hats go off to Chance for an outstanding race. Scott Wenner-strom Jr. of Plano was not to be left out as he was within inches of Berg at the finish line to take third position over Garland's Ben · Sorenson, finishing fourth. All these kids really put on some of the best racing of the day. Jay King of Bruceville pounded the course on his 600 Honda to ftrst overall in the Non-Current The Super Challenger Class of dune buggies stormed the track with Arlington's Jerry Daigle pushing his vehicle to the limit to take top honors over Fort W-orth's John Myers. These two swapped paint and positions all day with some of the closest racing of the day. Charles Wright of Fort Worth powered his way into third over Gainsville's Steve Dutton, rounding out the class for fourth. Leading here. Mike Melton came out of retirement for a day to show that he still has what it takes to go plenty fast. A bad ignition took him out of the running ear-ly in the main event. In the background Don "the Yank" Westman took second in the main with superb driving. BILSTEIN RACING APPLICATIONS 2" RATCHET WHEEL STRAP 2" 0011180 RATCHET/AXLE STMl'S 10 FT. $29.95 RED-BLACK-BLUE motorcycle class over hard charging Mike Hathcock of Cleburne for second. Andy Johnson of Clifton finished third with Waco's John Newman and Princeton's Brian Dotson taking the fourth and fifth trophies home. Up next in the starting line were the Vintage class of motorcycles with David Kirk of Waco zapping the rest of the pack for first overall. Rick Denney, Skip Miller, David Bell, and Don Kraft were in close competition for second through fifth positions in the Amateur Division. Randy Brown took the Vintage Intermediate win over Gary Moore second and Hillsboro's Alan Davis third, all riding hard on the antique equipment. "The Sarge" Bobby Lucas took command in the Vintage Masters division putting his Penton in the winner's circle. Up next were the mud drags. These participants were traveling 160 feet in 12 inches of mud in less than six seconds. That's moving! In Class I Alvarado's David Modlin took the win over Rod Taylor of Irving and Gary Howard of Waco. In Class II Red Oak's Chris Boulet powered through the mud for the first over Red Oak's Johnny Mask. John Pritchett of Plano put his Jeep into third rounding out the class. The Mud Bog event came next, in which drivers had to make it 40 yards through three feet of thick mud. Rod Taylor took the win over Gary Howard in Class I, with Ronald Parks edging out David Modlin for first in Class II. This event was a real crowd pleaser. The "Dash for Cash" muddy event sponsored by McDonalds had all the kids anxiously awaiting the start. Twin brothers Carl and Rex Tillery of Cleburne found the fast lane through the mud in the 8 and under age division for first and second. I couldn't tell them apart before they were covered with mud, mush less after. In the 9-12 age group Michael Trinker and Justin Meredith battled the muck with T rinker taking the win over Meredith. All entries received a free coupon for a burger at McDonalds with first and second earning cash rewards too. Even the adults got into the act with Rod Taylor taking the win.

., ROUND 3 AUSTRALIAN OFF ROAD CHAMPIONSHIP 1993 Bridgestone International, Kempsey, NSW Text & Photos: Darryl Smith ..... ,. . ~ this year looked worse as the dry conditions produced a dramatic dust problem. There were an unusual number t of damaged cars just after the track reconnaissance. Keith Owers had clipped a tree and split his gearbox, Geoff Beckett damaged a motor and Charlie Albins was run off the road by a 4x4 and had to replace the front end. The prologue was as usual very hotly contested with the dust in mind. Leading the pack was Goodyear's Brett Osborne way in front of the next car, the single Doug McMillan helped Firestone make a grand debut in the off road series. He drove the single seat Raceco Porsche to second in the prologue, took the race lead half way around the first loop, and went on to not only ~,in the single seat Class 9, but first overall as well. seater US import of Doug McMillan, who was part of the debut run for Firestone involve-ment. Les Brown was next driving for Bridgestone in Class 1. Wells, Burrows and Owen followed then the first Class 2, that of Terry This was the 13th year the hills of the Macleay Valley west of Kempsey held what is the toughest off road race on the calendar, the Bridgestone Inter-national. Being round 3 of the . championship the event attracted 131 entries with all classes boasting large fields. The finishing ratio last year was a mere 31 % and Rose. Leading Class 3 was Jason Graham, while Warren Irons led Class 4, Peter Briggs _ Class 5, Michael Eggert Class 6 and Les Siviour Class 7 complete with TV celebrity navigator, Glen Ridge. It was tight in Class 8 with Peter Hadlow edging out Fabio Zarfati both being in Mitsubishis. The King of Kempsey short course Shootout followed and saw Rose win the 1600 race and Wells win the Open heat. The combined Final saw Wells win over Brown, Rose, McMillan and Ziems. The similar event for the Tin Tops saw Hadlow win the 4x4 heat and Irons pip Taylor at the post for the 2WD heat. The Final was a battle between the 4x4's of Zarfati and Hadlow, with the Pajero of Zarfati (now owned by navigator, Geoff Pickering) taking out the event over Hadlow, Irons and Brosnan, who brought his Jeep down from T ownsville some 28 hours away. Race day starts very early and the pits were buzzing long before the sun even got up for the 7 :00 a.m. start. Everyone thought the dust was going to be the major problem, but the first obstacle was the thick fog limiting visibility and causing chaos for those without a windscreen. The first group left and of the four McMillan was last to leave the arena but was first of the pack when they returned around the Terry and Maureen Rose are having a good year ,n the two seat 1600 Hunter Rivmasta, running third after three laps of nine, had minor woes. but came in winning Class 2 and were second overall, with Mazda power. Daren Wells, foreground, won the open wheel King of Kempsey shootout in his Rivmasta. and here followed by Brett Osbourne who was fourth. Wefls went on to win Unlimited two seat class and place third overall. Class 3 is 1200cc cars, but they sure are fast. Kevin and Barry Lee and Scott McNeil took this Hornet not only to the 21 car class victory, but they finished a sparkling seventh overall. ·# .,,,.;..,;,a:..@,~-~-~ Jamie and Russell Robinson had a great run in the Class 1 Rivmasta as they finished second, fourth OJA and only 50 seconds out of the winning time. half way point. Owers left the race with the car not quite safe after the all night rebuild, Barry Johnson also pitted but for a short time while Mark Burrows pulled in as he had already got a flat tire. Reigning single seater champion Trevor Growden was out early with tie rod damage, while David Mendham took off a rear wheel on a tree. Another who worked all night, Peter Prendergast was losing brakes but then a gearbox failure stopped him. Three of the top Class 3s also went out early; Beckett a big rollover, Hartnett a motor, and Williams a turbo shaft, while his Jag-Art teammate Houston parked his Challenger after a list of problems. First out of the 4x4 battle was Brad Zacka who hit an upside down buggy at full speed causing sufficient damage to the Rodeo. Not long after an extremely disturbing incident involved Johnson's Class 1 as it slid off the track and caught fire. No fire extinguisher could control the incident and the car promptly burnt to the ground, with nothing left. It was a shame for the popular driver and disturbing for every-one who drove past, especially Rose whose son was in the car. Up front though it was McMillan setting the pace over Brown, Osbourne, Owen, Rose and Trees in an immaculate Class 9. Bentley broke an axle and set about replacing it at the half way point only to break another soon after. Then Glenn Owen fell out of the lead group with wheel damage, while two more Class 9s went out; Rod Brand clouted a famous square log on the finish line tearing off the rear wheel and Bob Strawbridge ran over something solid buckling and jamming two rims. Missing from the Class 8 4x4 field was Knott with a fuel pump failure in the Navara and the Jeep of Brosnan. Zarfati was stopping often for water and soon handed over to Pickering. After 2 laps the order was McMillan, Brown, Rose, Osbourne, Bennett, Boyes, Trees, Robinson, Wells, and Morrison rounding out the Ten. Burrows was to then pull out the fastest lap of the day trying to catch up, likewise Svenson with almost an identical time caught up but then had alternator problems. Osbourne had rear shock damage slowing him, and similar prob-lems hit Trees, while Buchanan lost front shocks. Bennett then clipped a stump damaging a rear arm while Irons' Baja lost a cliff. After three out of the nine laps it was now Les Brown who was seeking a hat trick of wins leading McMillan then Rose, Boyes, Wells, Robinson, Morrison, Osbourne, Albins and Crisp. Kevin Lee was leading Class 3 with his Firestone car, Nev Taylor the Bajas, Graham Smith had his Mark Burrows and Ross Wafler ran with the leaders in their Class 1 Trekka and they were third in class, fifth overafl and only four minutes out of a win. Andy and Alex Ziems had a delay due to a rollover and a broken link pin, but they fought back, and while behind on time they were second in 1600 class. It couldn't have been much closer as Mark and Daryl Warren took second in Class 3 1200cc in the Southern Cross, only six seconds behind the winner. ~c50 October 1993 Dusty Times

Nev Taylor and Bob Oxley are devoted Baja Bug racers, had a few problems en route including a flat tire close to the finisH, but they were a strong second. Despite having his seat break down en route, Grahame Baxter and Nigel Burley got around in the Nissan Patrol for second in Class 8, 22nd 0 /A. Mark Bush drives his single seat Hunter Rivmasta in Class 9, and took second after recurring troubles with steering column breakage, and he was 18th OJA. Galant leading Class 5, Trotter the Challenger Class, and Siviour led Manns in Class 7. Class 8 was 1(4, tight with three cars within the % same minute; Hadlow over Baxter and Smith. Bush and Trees followed McMillan in Class 9. Brown led, then vanished as he had a rear shock break, while the Robinson's lost an all-important 2nd gear. Rose pitted and welded up a throttle bracket and inlet chamber while the Ziems boys had a wild triple rollover but continued. Basham lost time with a broken CV while the Baja . of Schmidt broke an output shaft. The tiny but quick Suzuki 4x4 of Chapman finally gave up with cliff failure while Pickering changed a clutch in the Pajero only to lose a wheel later on.Trees gave up with no shocks on the Class 9 while fellow class competitor Howard Ford retired with a bent rear torsion tube. The race to the finish was on with crews now into their short laps. The order was now McMillan, Robinson, Rose, Wells, Morrison, Crisp, Albins, Burrows, Osbourne and the 4x4 battle with Hadlow next just 10 seconds clear of Siviour in 11th place. Baxter's VB Patrol fell back with fuel problems, while soon after the car of Boyes was out of contention for good with the fan through the radiator. During the 6th lap Hadlow went out after a hole appeared in an oil cooler leaving Smith's Rodeo in charge of Class 8 . Promising Class 3 · driver Robert Moore suffered a back inju~y and pulled out after earlier changing steering after a shunt from behind. Leading that class was still Lee but the Warren's were closing in despite clutch problems. Mark Bush from Class 9 had a steering shaft break while Class 8 closed up when Smith pitted for rear hub repairs, but then Baxter pitted also for front bearing attention. Out of Class 9 then went Jim Adness with front shock damage. The lead group then changed with Morrison suffering a broken crown wheel and pinion and Albins having computer failure. ' The order up front was now McMillan, Rose, Wells, Robin-son, Burrows, Crisp, Osbourne, Siviour, Lee, and Boaden making the Ten. As usual there were problems right up to the end. The Robinsons lost 4th gear as well then a rear shock. Then the Crisp's blew a cliff, then Whisker who was doing well in Class 3 had a rear arm break, while Taylor's Baja had a flat tire. Langham's fine run into third in Class 7 was hampered with a broken steering arm on the Ford. The Class 8 Landcruiser of Ryan had a rollover but continued. There was no such bad luck at the very front though as McMillan's fine year DustyTimcs -~ ·~ .-· The Baja Beetles had a rough time at Kempsey, but Steve MacDougall and Mark Wilson got their Fa/ken Tires entry around in good time to win the class and finish 19th overall, as only two Bajas finished. Les Siviour won Class 7 in the prologue and with Peter lseppi and Glen Ridge riding in the Nissan Patrol, Les did it again, won Class 7 with no apparent strain, and finished a wild tenth overall. continued after a 4th and a 2nd Latter was next and not that far this year, he now had a win in the behind either.

Stewart Baxter was hampered by a October 1993 Class 5 is a mix of 2WD sedans and pickups: this was a tough run for them with only 2 of 15 finishing.

Third was the early model Nissan of Kirkman, while the Landcruisers of Waters (8 laps) and Ryan (7 laps) followed. Suffering two steering column breakages didn't stop Mark Bush from bringing his Hunter home second in Class 9 behind McMillan. Then back on 6 laps was Jim Adness. It was true that this year's 21 % finishing ratio was worse than last year and indeed secured the Bridgestone Inter-national as the toughest event on the calendar. The next event which promises not to be as gruelling but a challenge just the same is the Yokohama, Blue Lake City 400 at Mount Gambier, South Australia on 11-12 September. Finally let me thank ,. Isuzu-General Motors for their kind generosity again in supplying a Jackaroo 4x4 for the race weekend.

• ••••• f"!€~i❖ ■ ■7111---■ ■ The Straight Poop From The Big Wahzoo GOLD COAST 300 -On this relatively cool and breezy Vegas morning, four Club entries gave all five Checker pits a thrill with the real possibility of four class winners, going into the last lap. It didn't quite work out that way, but to say the tension in the pits was high would be an under-statement. Rosenstein started it all off by being the first vehicle to get the checkered flag at this race. His one lap sprint to victory was Pete's second class win in a row, as he continued to be SCORE's going away Class 11 points leader. The Cooks followed his lead, by breaking out of their recent roll-over streak with a big 16 minute win in their Class 5-1600 Valvoline Bug. This further padded their Class 5-1600 points lead. Congratulations to Peter, Alan, Daryl and Wayne, winners all! Kevin Davis put his buggy on it's lid on the first lap, but came back with a charge that saw him close up on the leader on the last lap for a fine second place finish in the competitive 1-2-1600 Class. This moved Kevin within just a few points of his class leader, with only one race to go in the '93 SCORE series. But, the Club's only non-finisher put on the most impres-sive run of them all. Seeley, obviously tired of that third place shit, finally put the hammer down in a thrilling, yet truly heart breaking run. George not only turned in the two fastest laps in Class 5, but had a comfortable 11 minute lead when he charged off on his last lap. And then, the engine case cracked and spit out the oil pressure sending unit, forcing him out of the race-.. .Damn! Nevertheless, a cool time was definitely had b y all, with the possible exception of Reverend Roy, who had one of his two trailer tires pass him on the freeway. Once again, Max Norris deserves an Atta Boy at this race for his ability to always get 'just · one more room' for any Checker in need at the always 'sold out' Gold Coast Hotel. A second Atta Boy has to go out to fellow Checker Mike Gaughan and his loyal band of secretaries for their cooperation! Please thank all them lil' darlings for us Mike. CHECKER YEAR BOOK -Speaking of Uncle Max, anyone wishing to put an ad or spec-tacular photo into our up coming Checkers' Year Book, which is celebrating our 20th year of off road racing excellence, should contact Max ASAP. A SERIOUS COMPLAINT -No no, this one's not about the Wahzoo, although I just can't help but stick my nose into this one anyway! It seems that a Mrs. Karlinda Flores claims to have had what amounts to a near death experience down at the recent Baja 500 race, something she blames entirely on one of our Checker pits! In a detailed two page letter, that I received through Thomp-son, Mrs. Flores writes in all seriousness about her and her husband Raul's ordeal, using statements such as: "We literally Dustvnmes begged him for help", "He didn't care about our lives as human beings". And, "Raul and I nearly lost our lives that night!" Now is this serious shit, or what? An intense and immediate Wahzoo investigation quickly discovered that the ogre she was talking about was none other than our own BigJohn Files, along with his two callous cohorts, Gary Bates and Ray Bennet. Now of course, these three highly respected Checkers put a little different spin on the incident than Karlinda did. So, after a careful Wahzoo analysis of all the facts regarding these felonious charges, here's the straight poop: Running way late in a wounded mini race truck, the Flores pulled into Files' pit ·after they realized that their pit support was a no show. After receiving some good advice, which they refused to take, they left. A little later, now in the rain, with ntght falling, and just as our boys were pulling out, the Flores caugh them on the road and asked for some mech-anical help. Well naturally, good ol' Files says OK and back out into the rain our heroes go. After digging out all their stuff to get to the welder, John proceeds to do a major welding job on their suspension, melting his fancy Checker Pit Captain's jacket in the process. While this was going on, a hastily placed generator vibrated down against John's big ice chest and melts the hell out of that too. After the truck was repaired, the Flores were told to drive on ahead on the access road out, with our boys assuring them that they would be coming along behind them if they had any more trouble. . But no, these folks had apparently permanently adopted these helpful Checkers, as the Flores seemed to appear around every corner asking for something else, even though their truck was driveable. Their main complaint was that they were wet, cold and uncomfortable. This honeymoon came to an end when Raul suggested that Bates give him his jacket. Apparently that was the final straw for Gary, who called them a couple of whiners, and insisted they oughta look into bowling. And, at the next opportunity, our boys passed these two ungrateful moochers off to a couple of other unsuspec-ting chase vehicles, and continued on. · Now, a comment if you please: This Wahzoo is amazed at the audacity of these non-Checkers. Here is a husband and wife team who pt1lls into a Checker pit that owes them absolutely nothing. They argue with them, but still use them, and finally abuse them. And then, the passenger takes the time to write us a letter, not of thanks, but actually accusing our guys of trying to kill 'em! Hey Karlinda, if ya happen to be readin' this, the Wahzoo suggests you strictly limit your off road racing' activity to Ivan's video 1 game down at the local arcade. Unless of course, it looks like rain, then I suggest you keep that ass of yours on the couch! But, the real zero here has to be Karlinda 's ·husband, Raul. No self respecting male with any sense, would ever let his wife write such a stupid letter, as evidenced by it's effect: Not unexpectently, upon receiv-ing his copy, Bates reportedly wound the letter up into a nice tight little roll and vowed to properly insert it in ol' Raul the next time their paths cross. Now contrary to this incident, generally any unplanned visit to a Checker pit by a non-Checker racer is a pleasant experience. If they're nice folks and do not present a problem with respect to any of our Checker cars, most Checker pits will gladly give a non-Checker a hand ... and then again some won't! NEW MEMBER -The Wah-zoo would like to welcome Craig Dillon into our Checker Brother-hood. Despite a prevalent feeling that 'one Dillon was way too many', Gene's kid sailed right through the Checkers infamous secret black ball/white ball vote with no problem. Being now, a full and equal Checker member, the Club will expect him to get involved and out shine that old man ,,f his. Welcome aboard Craig! THE CHECKER W JTHER-HOOD -For all you non-Checker eavesdroppers, here's what makes the Checkers different from you and your organization: Neither money nor fame will buy you a membership, every man is a volunteer that EARNS his spot on our roster; Every Checker, be he primarily a racer or pitter, has an equal say in all Club business; The Checkers are a unique family of individuals who will regularly argue and yell at each other, but will immediately join ranks whenever threatened by an outsider; As a male only fraternal-like organization which meets every Wednesday night, we honestly feel that we're better than you are ... and have the record to prove it! Now the ol' Wahzoo's not braggin' nor complaining here, just reportin' the facts! In over 30 years of desert racin', from the original and continuing Checkers MC, and now on through 20 years of Checkers Off Road, the Checkers have always been a significant force to be dealt with. Indeed, if there is a God in off road racing', ya can bet your sweet ass he's a Checker! Our organization is made up of just a few good men, but we're always looking for a few new members to· replace some of our ol' farts who either die or become inactive. So, if you're an individual who wants to be a part of the best organization in off road racing, and is also interested in possibly having the 'God of Desert Racing' on your side, then the Wah zoo suggests you con-sider becoming a 'Checker'. At 8 P.M. every Wednesd:ty night we meet in the Van Nuys Dugout, at 14032 Oxnard Street in Van Nuys in the San Fernando Valley, 818-780-9458. You're invited to come on down and get acquaint-ed. But a word of warning: The Checkers are a group of irreverent and blunt talking funsters, who universally worship the 'Golden Naked Idol of Off Road Ex-cellence' (some swear her name is Trixie and she still works in Lathrop Wells, but that's another story). My point here being, I suggest ya leave the wife and kids at home. Note: this men only rule is in effect only at our weekly meetings, since everybody knows that the Checkers always sport some of the finest wives, pit tooties and unmarried daughters to ever strut their stuff across our deserts! AND FINALLY, remember if ya ever want to get in touch with October 1993 the Big Wahzoo, I'm only a phone call away. Contact me through George Thompson, 602-776-8528. Be it an atta boy, an ass ·chewin', or just some juicy or embarrassing story about one of our own, this Wahzoo is all ears. This offer also applies to any non-Checker that has something really important to say. But please, first honestly ask yourself the follow-ing question before ya make that call or write that letter: "Could either Dum/Jshit or Whln<.!r possibly be used to describe me here?" .. . and then act accordingly! FAIR NEWS B:v Dm•c Massin~lwm Fair has been born again! We are back at the Holiday Inn with a new deal; less money and no beer to sell; all drinks are from the bar. The August 4th meeting was the first one back at the Holiday Inn with new officers in charge. They are President, Bob "Weather-man" Steinberger, Vice Presid-ent, Mike "RCR" Butrick, Treasurer, Barbara Butrick, Secretary, Lita Whitehead, Race Director, Dave Massingham, Sgt. at Arms, Bruce Streeper. Wel-come to the new board and thanks to the old board for a fine job. Pete Dutton, Pres., Charlie Nieto, V.P.,JeffRandall, Treas., Mickey Dutton, Sec. Bob Steinberger opened the meeting with a bang. He had a prepared agenda, a list of "things to be done" and a wish list. He passed out a questionnaire on FAIR, asking what direction we want to go. Hope everyone fills it out and returns it to Bob. This is the only way he and FAIR will be successful. Bob has a lot of great ideas and wants to create committees to achieve them. He appointed 20 or 25 members to serve on them. I hope everyone will try their best to help. A new member voted in was Mike Rebolledo. Welcome Mike, I know Mike has been to several meetings and races. I think we just acquired another great FAIR member. The next meeting is August 18th. Sal Fish was scheduled but was unable to attend. We are very happy to have Bob Bowers ofBFG as our guest speaker for this meeting. Bob is planning to have a guest speaker at the second meeting of each month. We started out having 7 or 8 cars signed up for the Gold Coast 300 race and ended up with only four FAIR cars and two Chapala Duster cars at the race. RCR finished fifth in Class 1 and sixth overall. Tom Baker drove the first half, had a flat at mile 36 and spent the rest of his loop catching up. Bob Richey, owner of RCR Plumbing in Riverside, drove his car to the finish. He had front suspension problems, plowing dirt all the way. Maybe with his new automatic transmission and his 3.2 plus liter Porsche motor, the car is going so fast it might be time to revise the front suspen-sion. The Temple Construction car "Old Yeller" was a dnf. Seems Jim had front end problems at mile 59 and dropped out. I also heard about his co-driver being injured while out of the car. Something about him running into the car and cutting his nose? Maybe Jim and Mark Temple will have better luck with their Laughlin venture in Hotels and Casinos. Good luck guys! Now Doug Fraizier can go to work on the company equipment. Brian Parkhouse teamed up with Rich Fersch of Race Haus in Downey. They drove the Fersch 1-2-160.0 in Class 10, Rich bought Brian's old single seat and made it into a Class 10 and they finished second in class. Rich took the first two loops and gave it to Brian only two minutes behind Wilson and Wilson in second place. They finished in the same position; says a lot about the prep job Rich Fersch does. Team Jefferies, Darnen 20 years old and brother Casey 15 years old, did the entire race without a change and had one minor distributor problem at Pit F. Thanks to the Duster crew they got it going. Darnen stopped every lap for fuel, a drink of water and a little TLC for a fine third in Class 9. Way to go guys, we knew you could do it. This is a real family affair with dad at pit F and brother Willie chasing. The Dusters had a winner as Danny Porter finished first in Class 1-2-1600. Way to go Danny. It looks like dear old dad's prep job still works. Just kidding. I know every Tuesday evening is race car prep night for both Danny and Gary. The Anderson's 1-2-1600 was the other Duster car, but I didn't get any detail on it. Hope Pat Henesy in her Duster column has more to offer. Our next race is the La Rana "Johnson Valley 200, August 28th. FAIR will field six or seven cars. More on the Gold Coast: Pete Dutton, son Ryan and Mike Bingham drove the FAIR van to Vegas with only one minor vapor lock poblem, going up the Baker Grade. Thanks to all the racers who passed them up without sto pping!!!! Bill Varnes from Mirage was the only one who stopped to lend a hand. Thanks Uncle Bill, we know who we can count on. Pete got the problem fixed. We need to remember to shut off the fuel line to the Honda Generator. Pit Reports: Main - Pete had extra help, Bob Bezzant, Steve Romo, Garf and Harold Nicks of Parker Pumper. I don't know how much work was done, but I am sure Garf kept Pete awake with a few jokes. Pete, Mike and Ryan were the main dudes. At Pit A RCR I am told had a great pit, thanks. In-the future I will get all pit workers names. Pit C was staffed by Dusters President EviJn Harbottle and Pat Hennesy wno enjoyed the day without lifting a wrench. Sorry, I didn't tell Evan that RCR marked the pits. At Pit D Steve Myers and Paul went to Vegas just to pit! Even after Steve just got married a few weeks ago. Ata Boy Steve, that's true FAIR dedication. Pit E was manned by Harry Dunne and son from Vegas, pitting for Parkhouse and Rich Fersch. I understand Harry needs a bigger truck or trailer to haul tires and equipment to a pit. Pit F saw Harold Curry and Joel Moore from the Dusters take the farthest pit. Team Jefferies were there to assist them from FAIR. Thanks to Wayne Morgan for having the FAIR van distributor rebuilt and to Charlie Lamar for installing it and timing it. The van runs great now!!! Interested in FAIR? We tneet the first and third Wednesday every month at the Holiday Inn on Harbor Blvd. and the 91 Fwy in Fullerton. Page 57
