And a tired but happy Walker Evans put the Dodge in victory circle on a fast deflating tire and with a steaming radiator. Walker is running a half dozen of the SODA events this season, and is becoming quite a jet setter, but who needs sleep when he can perform so well at the track he really likes in Crandon, WI. Photo courtesy of Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. Rob MacCachren plowed over the rough Barstow desert in his Class 8 Venable Ford without missing a beat. Having no serious troubles along the way Rob not only won Class 8 by a good margin, he woh the race overall by mere seconds, just as he had done one year earlier at the same July race, the Fireworks 250. Two overall wins in a row at Barstow is quite a feat!

Competition Review By Reese King Board Report First the Good News -SCORE vice president. Paul Fish was released from the hospital on June 15 and is resting at home, in . fact back at work just after the Fireworks 250. George and I wish Paul a speedy recovery and would like to recommend that he add a new word to his vocabulary: NO The Competition Review Board for the 1993 Tecate/SCORE Baja 500 met at 8:00 a.m. at the bar at the Villa Marina Hotel. The Board Administrator was Carlos Orozco of Baja Pits, members included Steve Holladay, Class 1 Open Wheel, Doug Fortin Jr., Class 1 Trucks, Rogerio Ampudia Class 1-2-1600, Mike Schwellinger Class 7S, Frank Vessels, Class 8, Danny Cau SCORE President, Reese King CRB Marshal. In addition Mr. Tony Tellier, fellow journalist of ill repute, was in attendance as an invited guest. In one of the shortest hearings on record Mike Lesle protested the 5-1600 entry of Enrique Guerrera for unsafe driving through the Lesle Racing pit near checkpoint 2. Mike, along with Larry Noel related the following to the board. "568 came through check 2, turned right and pitted. He then came back toward the course, where traffic had been stopped by the Federales controlling the road crossing. 568 then jumped up the bank on the -CElfTERUNE WHEELS right side ot the pavement and drove through our pit. He almost ran over four people, slid into our 110 gallon refueling tank, and then left the pit, running through and over our banners. This guy was hours down and not even in the race. He risked injuring many people." To say that the board was shocked at this outrageous con-duct would be to understate in the extreme. A few questions were asked of Lesle and Noel, and 568 was called to respond to the protest. Mr. Guerrera failed to ap-pear before this board and was swiftly disqualified in a unani-mous vote. Additionally he will receive a letter of reprimand for his failure to appear. In the second shortest hearing on record, the lovely and talented Bill Wick, President of SCORE Officials Association, filed a charge of unsafe driving against entry #556 Steve Taylor. While supervising operations at check-point 3, Bill observed car 561 Mike James enter the check and stop to receive his stub. As this was happening 556 entered the check-point sounding his horn, and then, under acceleration rammed the James entry. Bill stated that there were no apparent injuries and nei-ther entry made any statements to SCORE personnel. Steve Taylor· failed to PIAA ""1FEUIONAL HALOOBI LAMP •Y81DI appear at the CRB and was disqualified for his entry's dangerous and apparently delib-erate conduct. A letter of repri-mand will also be issued to Mr. Taylor for his failure to appear. I had originally intended Bob Gordon to be the Class I rep at this race. However, between trav-eling to Indy and pre-running in Baja, Bob was very difficult to contact. I finally caught up with him at the BFG party on Friday, and informed him of my inten-tions. Bob requested to serve on the· board in Barstow, as he was understandably anxious to return home Sunday to watch Robby's Indy Car race. Fortunately Steve Holladay was at the party and I was able to cajole him into serving. Unfortunately for Bob, SCORE checkpoint captain Dave Scott filed a protest of unsafe driving and passing inside a checkpoint. Scott stated that, "at 12:25 vehicle #104 approached the check at a high rate of speed and attempted to pass # 105, Simon and Simon as they both turned off highway 3 on to the dirt. He took out all but one of our cones, and then dropped in behind Simon. In my opinion he endangered my crew and was driving in an unsafe manner." When we managed to get Bob to stop showing off the new addition to his family long enough to address the board, his first comment was, "I told you I didn't want to be here!" Gordon ad-mitted that the facts as related by Scott were true, but stated that he didn't expect the checkp,oint to be so close to the highway. The board questioned Danny Cau and Bill Wick regarding this checkpoint. Three important facts were revealed. First, there was no "Checkpoint I/ 4 mile" sign in use here~ Second the "Checkpoint 200 yards" sign was placed on the inside of the tum as the drivers left the highway. Third, the checkpoint had been moved closer to the highway since the last time Gordon had been there on his first lap. In a unanimous vote the board dismissed the charge against #104. See you in Barstow, Bob! The issue of abusive nerfing returned for a double header at the Baja 500. First up, entry #1024 Bill Hernquist, protested the Class 4 entry of Alan Shapiro, #40 I. Hernquist related to the board that .at approximately mile marker 230 he was crossing an erosion ditch in third gear when suddenly he heard the sounds of a large engine and was struck in the rear. The force of the impact launched him off the race course, where he collided with a tree. When the dust cleared the tree was no longer attached to the ground and the engine and transmission were no longer at-tached to Bill's car. In answer to questions from the board, Hern-quist stated that the incident oc-curred at approximately 1400 hours, that his rear collision avoidance lamp was operational, and that entry #401 did not stop at the scene.

As is usually the case in these situations the board spent considerable time speculating whether or not the hit was inten-tional or accidental. What was unusual, this board devoted more time to the issues of not stopping • at the scene and failure to appear at the meeting. I am sure that everyone would agree that when you are involved in a racing acci-dent. good sportsmanship dictates that you are obligated to stop and, at a minimum insure that the occupants are ·right. However to accuse Randy of unsports-manlike conduct assumes that he was aware of Hernquist's fate after the collision. In a majority vote the board upheld the protest and penalfaed Shapiro one position. Also, the board directed a letter of reprimand be issued for failure to appear. Next up. Jim Fishback, Jr. driving in the Bud Feldkamp entry, submitted a written protest to SCORE officials at the finish line, alleging abusive nerfing by #805 Frank Vessels. No one from this team appeared at the CRB meeting to support their claim, and the board voted unanimously to dismiss the case. In an unusual display of resourcefulness quad rider Mitch Tevlin, entry 3A, requ.ested that SCORE officials flag entry #106A, Greg Row to appear at the . Comp-etition Review Board. It seems that during the morning hours of race day, support vehicles for these racers were involved in a collision on highway 3 at approximately kilometer 58. Apparently, the drivers of these vehicles did not communicate with each other at the scene. Later in the day they found each other and discussed the incident, but failed to ex-change driver and insurance information. Naturally, neither one would ·admit fault. Mitch was aware that this was not a matter for the CRB. Greg Row did not appear, so I asked Danny Cau to supply Tevlin with the information necessary to contact him. No action was taken by the CRB. I believe that there is some-thing more important here than who was at fault. When we leave the known security and familiarity of our homes and travel to isolated areas where we can not understand the language, we must take the time and put forth the effort to look out for each other. Sometimes looking out for each other may compromise our racing efforts. Just ask Ivan Stewart or David Ashley, or Randy Salmont. These are racers who have lost time, position and even races, because they stopped · to look out for each other. It's the Right Thing to Do! "Failure to Appear" when flagged had been 50 percent in the four races to date. All of that 50 percent had one thing in common, each was a DNF at the race in question. On long races the Ff A just might still be out in the desert trying to get his wounded racer on a trailer and start home while the meeting is going on. Of course nobody asked this editor's opinion or asked us to sit in at the meeting, so we will just have to let them figure out what to do. Dusty Times

SOUTAR'S/BUDWEISER SCORE FIREWORKS l50 MacCachrcn Docs It Again By Judy Smith Plwtos: Track.side Plwto Inc.

None of them had a trouble free day. Simon had blown a check, and was spending some time replacing flats caused by running into things. Dean had a flat, Evans had four all together, and Fortin had a rear wheel break. Stewart lost a battery, and Arciero flattened a rear tire, didn't realize it, and rolled the car over. His passenger, Cal Wells, Jr., 61 year old father of Stewart's boss, Cal Wells, Ill, bumped his head severely enough that he got out of the car and headed to a local hospital for a once over. He was reported to be o.k. -At the end of the second lap, off right behind Class 1, and at the end of lap one it was Larry Ragland, in his Chevy, in front by a minute and four seconds. Frank Vessels had his Ford in second place, and MacCachren ran third. He said his strategy was not to charge through the dust. Said Rob, "I play follow the leader, then they go into a pit, or move over, and then I go by." David Bryan was fourth in his Ford, and Art Peterson and Beny Canela, in another Ford, were fifth.

It was a repeat of his performance of 1992, winning overall, but this time it was close, 24 seconds. wl ee h' were s 1. in . e fea • uft The Barstow course has plenty of room for passing along most of its length, and there was a good bree:e to blow the dust away from much of the course, so it was generally not hard for the drivers to see. Nonetheless they hit things and flattened tires. By the end of lap two, MacCachren was in the lead, three and a half minutes up on Vessels, Ragland, who'd had four flats on the first lap, now broke a balljoint, and dropped to third. Canela and Peterson were fourth, and Harvey Risien was fifth, in a new Chevy that was having flats, and brake problems. Rob MacCachren paced his big Ford truck just right, to stay out of trouble and get to the finish line first at SCORE's Fireworks 250 in Barstow, giving him back to back overall wins for this holiday weekend event. But it was close, and his margin of victory was a scant 24 seconds, over the second place team of Dave and Paul Simon, in their Class 1 Ford. down, although it threatened to The Fireworks, which was a blow away the sunshades protect-night race for years, was put back ing the contingency folks. It was on a two day format this year, early to bed for most that evening, making contingency and tech because the green flag would start inspection an all day Friday chore, waving at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, in the parking lot of the Barstow sending the racers out onto the 73 Mall. The weather was Mojave mile course for their three laps. Desert hot, but a stiff wind helped There was a nine hour time limit, to keep the irritability factor_ even for the Stock-Mini and · Stock-Full trucks, and Class 11, who were required to finish only two laps. Most of the 28 Class 10s could be a winner and Brian Parkhouse kept his Mirage in the thick of things, handing over to Willie Melancon for the last lap, had no troubles and they won Class 10 at 11th OJA. The Unlimited Class 1 cars were first to go, at 30 second intervals, and Jim Smith had the fun of being first on the road in his Ford truck. He had a big crowd pushing and shoving behind him, and at the end of the lap the first vehicle on the road was Walker Evans in his Dodge truck, but in the lead on elapsed time, was Dave Simon, in his Ford. He had the fast lap for the Class, at 1 :23: 12, and 14 seconds on Frank Arciero in Bob Gordon's Porsche powered Chenowth, and Arciero was 20 seconds in front of Ivan Stewart in his Toyota. Evans was fourth, and Doug Fortin, Jr., in a Chevy, was fifth, a minute and a half later. Pat Dean, in a Porsche " ess t an a minute m rant o Evans. Gordon took over for Arciero, and was third, followed by Dean, and then Carl Renez-eder, in a Porsche Chenowth, whose major problem had been with dust. The Simons, who had a total of three flats, had no major mechanical problems, and passed Evans while he was fixing a flat, to be first on the road, as well as in the lead. They finished their race a few minutes before 11 a.m. taking the win by three and a half minutes. Evans lost his power steering about 15 miles before the finish, and had to use two hands to steer, which was painful. because he had badly burned the palm of his right hand in his shop a couple of days before the race. Dean, who soloed, was third, about five minutes later, followed in by Gordon and Arciero, the passenger seat still empty. Fortin, who'd been without brakes for a while, worked back up to fifth place. They were all finished in time for lunch. Stewart had transmission problems, got stuck in gear, and ultimately finished in 10th place. The Class 8 contingent took On the· last lap MacCachren 's crew kept him apprised of how big a lead he had in class, and then they started to compute his overall position. It looked as if he had about three minutes on Walker, and the consensus seemed to be that the Simons would have a penalty for charging through that checkpoint on the first lap. But MacCachren pushed harder, and recorded the fast lap of the day, at 1:22:41, to squeak by the Simons and take the overall. It was a good thing he'd pushed, because the Competition Review Board (CRB) handled the checkpoint running incident by sending the Simons a letter of reprimand. Ragland took second place, 16 minutes later, followed in by Risien, nearly two hours later. Vessels broke on the third lap. There were 28 Class 10 cars, Walker Evans had the Dodge first on the road for a while, but he too had flat tires to slow his progress and he finished close in second in Class 1. Pat Dean had just one flat tire on the ChenowthJPorsche and he Despite a rollover on the first lap, the team of Bob Gordon and Frank Arciero Jr. carried on in the ChenowthJPorsche in fine style to fourth in Class 1.

Ray Croll does a little nose stand for the pit crews in his Jimco, but such antics didn't slow him, fast class lap on the last round and second in Class 10. Ryan Thomas had an exciting finish in his Chenowth. coming in on a flat tire, but he salvaged a good third place in the very competitive Class 10 ranks. Rick Romans led the first two of three laps, then lost the alternator, and two batteries on the next round but he did salvage fourth place in Class 10. Barry Slatter built his Ford from the ground up himself, with help from his friends, and his reward was a sparkling perform-ance at Barstow taking second in Class 7. Dave Ashley blew four power steering pumps on lap 1, but the crew got the problems sorted out, and the Ford ran fine then, and Ashley set class fast lap on his way to second in Class 4. and fully half of them had the combination of equipment and driving skills necessary to win this event. And the lead belonged to Rick Romans, in his Raceco, at the end of lap one, with a minute and 20 seconds on Steve Sourapas in his Chenowth. In third it was Brian Parkhouse, in his Mirage, 41 seconds later, followed by Ryan Thomas, in a Chenowth, a minute and one second back. In fifth it was the team of Mike and Jim Zupanovich, in their Moul-ton, just another seven seconds later. Romans had another good lap, and kept his lead, and now Sourapas, and partner, Dave Richardson, were five minutes down to him. In third it was Parkhouse, having no troubles, and then Thomas was fourth, another minute back, with Ray Croll in fifth in his Jimco. Croll had had a couple of flats. Romans lost his alternator, and then his battery, which he replaced. But the replacement went bad too, and he had to cannibalize one from his truck. In the meantime, Willie Melancon took over for Parkhouse, and was having a great time, on his way to the finish line. They got the win, finishing a little over four minutes in front of second place. And that was Croll, who said his rear suspension went away, but Class 5 had a high attrition rate, but Greg Diehl and Tony Kujala overcame losing CV bolts with a fast pit crew to the rescue, and they went on to win the class in style, by well over an hour. recorded the fast lap for the class on his last lap, at 1 :32: 10, to move up three positions. Thomas flattened a rear tire when he hit a rock about five miles before the finish, and drove it in. But he had brain fade, and forgot that he was supposed to stop at the finish line, rather than racing through it, and worried that he'd suffer some terrible consequence. but th'e CRB was feeling magnanimous, and voted to send him a letter of reprimand, so his third place stood. Romans salvaged a fourth place on his truck's battery, and_ ~ _....._ •-~-f< Sourapas and Richardson, with a broken rear shock, were fifth. From first place to fifth there was only a 13 minute spread. Class 5 should have had five starters, but Lisa Dickerson broke her toy on Thursday while testing. So, it was a four car race, and Mike and Neal Grabowski had the first lap lead, and class fast lap, at 1 :42:05. They were only a little over two minutes in front of Greg Diehl, who'd had them in sight for the whole lap. George Seeley ran third, and Lynn Mocaby was fourth. On the second lap the Grabow-ski car broke a steering coupler, and just behind them, over the crest of a hill. Tony Kujala, who'd taken over for Diehl, lost his c.v. bolts•, and was waiting for his crew to bring some out. He imagined the Grabowskis charging on down the course ahead of him, and was bemused to find them just on the other side of the hill, still worki1,1g on their car, once he was running again. So Kujala went into the • lead, and Mocaby was second now, with the Grabowskis in third, as Seeley broke a rear wheel bearing. Kujala said that Barstow "is the toughest course on rear suspension there is. You feel like you're gonna crash all day long", and he felt he didn't have his suspension figured right, but still Jerry McDonald led early in the Chevy, then had steering problems for most of the distance, but he toughed it out to win Class 4 by 58 minutes despite the lack of power steering on the rough course. managed to put himself and Diehl Dusty Timcs September 1993 Scott Douglas crashed on the first lap, but many parts and pieces later he was third in Class 7 and in the lead by the end of the second lap.

But the Grabowskis and Seeley, both of whom got around the third lap, were both overtime. Class 7 had a similar race. Jack Johnson had his Ford in the lead on lap one, with the quick time of 1 :30:07. and Barry Slatter, in another Ford, was second, 45 minutes later.

Kevin Davis kept the Lothringer in the lead pack all the way, stopping t11,1ice for fuel, but he finished a very tight second in the 1-2-1600 fast pack. Rod Muller and Mike Halliday got fast lap on the first one in the Chenowth, but a broken shock slowed them later and they were third in Class 1-2-1600. Jeff Lewis had down time, scarcely had a clean lap, but he kept the Chevy S-10 moving forward quick enough to take second in Class 7S, just an hour back.

None of the others made it in. Class 4 took the green flag next, and it was Jerry McDonald, in his Chevy, when they came around again. He had about seven and a half minutes on Alan Shapiro and Randy Salmont in their Ford, and they were 13 minutes up on Rod }fall in his Dodge. David Ashley was having a frustrating morning with his Ford, which had blown four power steering pumps in about 20 miles, losing about an hour and 45 minutes. McDonald kept his lead, in spite of losing his power steering partway through lap two, and was 21 minutes up on Hall at the end of lap two, while Shapiro and Salmont were about 10 minutes behind him. Ashley was still fourth, but had run the quickest second lap, and was now only 40 minutes behind third place. McDonald, who'd broken the end off his steering ram, was without recourse, and did the rest of the race with no power steering. He held on grimly, saved his lead and got the win.

Gary and Keavin Anderson, in a Lothring-er, were fifth, two minutes and five seconds further back. There was still a big list of capable drivers pushing hard behind the leaders. Halliday took some time to replace a broken shock, and Davis stopped for fuel, and Grizzle moved into the lead.

Curt LeDuc had his Jeep in second place, only 21 seconds behind him, followed by Dale White, in a Chevy, about 14 minutes later. White was recover-ing from a severe bout of the flu. Grizzle, whose tank holds 27 gallons of gas, had planned to run with no fuel stops, but he and his crew had a change of heart, so he stopped at the end of the second lap for a splash. That was his only stop. He went on smoothly to take his first win, finishing just under a minute in front of Davis, who'd had to stop twice for fuel. In third it was Muller and Halliday, 12 minutes later, and the Steeles came in fourth, with no left front tire.

He was already a healthy eight and a half minutes in front of the second place car, which was Pancho Bio, in his Tubular Designs car. In third it was Rick Paquette, in a T-Mag, and Rich Richardson and Doug Perrault, in a Jimco, ran fourth. Johnson, who'd brought half of Barstow's young male population out for pit people, had built his lead to 16 minutes by the end of the second lap, and it was still Bio, and his co-driver, John Fisher, in second place. Paquette, who'd changed a balljoint on the second lap, and his co-driver, .Brad Maurer, were still third, with Richardson and Perrault steady·in fourth place. On the fourth lap Johnson broke a balljoint, but his crew was "right there", and he lost only 15 minutes, which wasn't enough to threaten his lead. He went on to take the win, finishing four minutes and 21 seconds in front of Paquette and Maurer. Maurer had done the last lap with a badly bent axle, and had really blistered his hands. Bio and Fisher were third, and Greg Davis and Harry Peter Rosenstein and Duane Morimoto were the only Class 11 entry, and were given permission to do just one lap and still get all the winner's honors and finishing points. Dunne, in a Chenowth, came home in fourth place. Callaway and John Holmes, who'd stalled on the start line, and didn't get going again for an hour, were able to salvage a fifth place. Class 11 had only one entry, the '71 VW of Peter Rosenstein and Duane Morimoto, who did one lap in the time of 3:27:59, and then parked it. The official results Larry Carpenter whips along over the soft stuff in his Toyota, one of six in the stone stock mini truck class, and Larry did two laps for the victory winning by ten minutes. As usual Gordon Dicarlo won the Full Size stone stock truck class, doing his required two laps in good time in the sano Ford, and he reported having no problems at all on the course. September 1993 show them as non-finishers. In the Stock Full class, which ran only two laps, Gordon DiCarlo drove his Ford all the way, recording the class fast lap on lap one, at 2:44:24, to take the lead. Mark Stein and David Sykes, in another Ford, ran a distant second. DiCarlo, who said his only "problem" had been a squeak, backed up his first lap with another good one, to take the win. Stein and Sykes were an hour and 45 minutes behind them in second place, the last to finish in this class. In the Stock Mini group it was Larry Carpenter on lap one, with Class fast lap, 2:43:04 (just a tad quicker than the Stock Full truck), and chased by Scott Sells, about nine minutes back. Michael Martin and Rick Hughes were third, but nearly an hour down. They were all driving Toyotas. This class also ran only two laps, and Carpenter, who had two flats and a broken torsion bar adjw,ter, nevertheless took the win, followed in by Sells, who'd been using his emergency brake for stopping for the entire second ·lap. He was just 11 minutes behind Carpenter. The early morning start meant that the greater part of the racers were finished by lunch time, and everyone was off the course in time for supper. The CRB had its meeting and handed down its list of letters of reprimand all on the same evening, and then the awards were handed out later on, to make it a long, but complete day. Everyone could head home on Sunday, if they hadn't gone on Saturday, and the rest of the holiday could be given over to fireworks and barbecues. SCORE goes to Las Vegas next, for the Gold Coast 300, August 6th through the 8th, and then follows that up with the final race of the year, the Baja 1000, November 11th through the 14th. Page 17

Rod Millen scored the truck main event win for Toyota, putting both himself and Toyota on top of their respective points heaps, and he was followed to the flag by teammate Ivan Stewart, a Toyota sweep. Kevin Smith had his Mirage humming, took the main event lead late in the race and held on to it in the Toyota powered Super 1600 to win the class and move into third in points for 1600s. MICKEY THOMPSON STADIUM OFF ROAD RACING Rod Millen Back On Top In Salt Lake City The inaugural MTEG event in Salt Lake City drew a crowd of almost 18,000 folks to Rice Stadium. The course here had new and interesting features to add to the challenge for the drivers in the series. The races usually run in a counter clockwise direction, but at Rice Stadium they ran in a clock-wise direction, plus the drivers faced the Super Bank, a right hand banked tum located on the north end of Rice Stadium, that took the race cars halfway up the grand-stands. It made a good show, and something new for the stadium racers to handle. As always the Grand National Trucks were the glamour ~ Photos: Trackside Photo Inc. class; points leader Rod Millen qualified fastest, his Toyota just two ticks ahead · of . Rob MacCachren, Ford, who had Rick Johnson, Chevy, just two ticks behind him. Roger Mears wrenched his back during qualifying doing a hand stand on the rear wheels. Roger said, "like they say in football I just have to .. play with pain." Ivan Stewart, fourth fastest, looked forward to a good race having made some changes in his Toyota. Rick Johnson, only ten points behind Millen going in, remarked "I'm really happy about having my old motorcycle rival Jeff Ward out here (in a Dodge). When I left the Supercross series I knew Jeff and I would bump into each other on another race track sooner or later. It won't take him long to get up to speed; Jeff is a great competitor. The first event of the night was the first truck heat for 8 laps. Walker Evans, Dodge was on the pole in the semi-inverted line up. Midway Walker had opened up a six truck length lead over R9ger Mears Sr., Nissan. The field started to spread out across the track before the Jeep of Evan Evans flipped, causing a full course yellow. Walker Evans was at the front on the restart, but Mears Sr. was able to get by when he went wide on tum 1. Rick Johnson fell back with obvious problems, while Mears Sr. opened up quite a lead halfway in the race, leaving the battle for second place between Evans and Rob MacCachren. MacCachren dropped to fifth after he was given a stop and go by the Rough Driving Committee. Roger Mears Sr. stretched his lead, and claimed heat 1 honors.

Ivan Stewart and Rod Millen, Toyotas, and MacCachren was fifth. The single Sport Utility 6 lap heat was next. Tim Lewis had his Jeep on the pole and held the lead after one lap, but the Jeeps of Tommy Croft and Larry Noel were in close pursuit.

Granlund held a steady lead throughout the first four laps as the following pack started to fall off the pace. Gran-Jund won the heat, followed by Ellis and Sheppard. In the second ATV heat Charles Shepherd's Honda was on the pole. Shepherd and Doug Eichner quickly pushed out in front, turning this race into a two man battle. Eichner was never able to get his Laeger works bike past the leader, and Shepherd cruised to the wire to wire victory. · Eichner was second and Sean Stubbs, Suzuki, took· third. Roger Mears drove his Nissan right into first place in the opening truck race and took second in Heat 2 as well, but faded in the main event with problems.

Scott Klaers, Briggsbilt, was on the pole for the second Super-Lite heat and he took the early lead but all time series win leader Greg George gave chase. Klaers started to pull away from George before Allen Y aros flipped, caus-ing a full course yellow. Klaers again jumped out front on the restart with George chasing. With two laps to go, George took over the lead in his Briggsbilt and held on for victory, followed by Sean Finley, Triple E, Klaers and Don Archibald. Marty Hart was on the pole for the first~ lap Super 1600 heat race, but it was Jimmy Nichols who grabbed the early lead. Hart's · buggy stalled halfway through, ending a seemingly frustrating race for the Louisiana resident. Mean-while Nichols was busy holding off the charges of points leader and defending champion Jerry Whelchel. Jerry was able to get alongside Nichols on the last tum and the two cars crossed the finish line at virtually the same time. After minutes of delay and replays Jimmy Nichols was awarded the win, while Whelchel finished the very closest second, followed by Eric Arras. Ed Herbst had his Chenowth on the pole for the second Super 1600 heat, but a quick roll over by Gary Gall on the Super Bank brought out a complete restart. Herbst did not restart, giving Kevin Smith a clear look at the front from the second row. Smith took advantage in his Mirage and squeezed by Aaron Hawley for the lead. In passing Hawley, Smith incurred a puncture in his right rear tire forcing him to limp around the track. Gall was able. to get by Smith, but nose dived his· Chenowth into a jump going end over end. Smith, who had com-pletely lost the rubber off his wheel by the flag, held on to win. Hawley was second, and Wash-ington driver Roger Caddell was third. Before the second heat the truckers voiced their excuses for first heat performance. Rick Johnson said he broke the front sway bar before the lap 3 restart, so it was tough to steer around corners. Roger Mears said he lost the brakes on the restart and that his back really hurt. Rob Mac-Cachren said his Ranger was run-ning great, but he felt he got a bad call and an unfair penalty good for two positions. Danny Thompson said he lost the power steering pump. Ivan Stewart and Rod Mil-len said they were concentrating on gaining points for Toyota. On his debut Jeff Ward said "So far I've broken two wheels, one in practice and another one right after the restart. It locked up and all I could do was go in a circle there in the far corner." "Maybe we should put spokes on those wheels for you" said Walker Evans. The GN trucks came out for their second 8 lap heat race, and Danny Thompson was on the pole. But Roger Mears took the early lead, then Thompson was quick to regain his lead and once there Thompson got clear of the pack where turns sometimes went four trucks wide. With Thompson in front, the battle turned to Mears, Ivan Stewart and Rick Johnson. Mears spun on lap 4 giving second place to Stewart. Johnson was third with a lap to go, but Mears was able to slip by on tum 2. Danny Thompson cruised to win for Ford but the dramatics didn't end there. Mears rolled on the final tum but somehow was able to hold on for second ahead of Rick Johnson, followed by Stewart and Millen. The first UltraCross 7 lap heat race started with Yamaha riders Kyle Lewis and points leader Shuan Kalos immediately separ-ating themselves from the pack to battle for the lead. Lewis had the early lead and Kalos was never able to get by, giving Lewis his second win of the season. Kalos was second and Mike Bell third aboard a Suzuki. In the second UltraCross heat Suzuki rider Mike Healey and Yamaha's A.J. Whiting and Larry Brooks quickly made it a three bike race. Healey was able to keep the other two riders behind him, leading -all the way to victory. Whiting was second and Brooks was third. The first main event featured the Sports Utility rigs for 8 laps. The Ford Explorer of Jerry Whel-• chel was on the pole. Chris Neil zipped his Nissan Pathfinder into the lead from the outside pole. Whelchel quickly pulled up on him but was forced to retire with mechanical problems. Neil held the lead for only two laps before Tommy Croft took over the lead in his Jeep Cherokee. Smoke started billowing from Neil's Nissan and Larry Noel, in another Cherokee, took over second. Once in the lead Croft ran away· for a fourth con-secutive main event victory. Cory Witherill finished second, follow-ed in by Larry -Noel then Tim Lewis, all driving Jeep vehicles. The 4 Wheel A TVs produced a good field for their 8 lap main event and Doug Eichner, the heat I winner, pushed his Laeger works bike to lead from the pole position. Once in the lead Eichner never looked back, claiming his first main event win of the season. Points · leader coming into tonight's race, Mark Ehrhardt ran in the back half of the pack and finished a disappointing eleventh. Fred Sheppard was second followed by Niclas Granlund and Charles Shepherd. It was also 8 laps for the SuperLite Main event. Greg George moved from the outside pole position to grab the lead. George was being pushed by Nature's Recipe teammate Jimmie Johnson. C.J. Mears, who was running third at the time, spun on lap 5 leaving the 16 year old driver out of the race. Mears' JI Joe Price keeps his Triple E just ahead of Jimmy Johnson here, and Joe went on to a great finish, fourth in the Superlite main event. Superlites tend to do the bicycle act, and Rick Marshal demon-strates here in his Triple E. He carried on to finish fifth in the main event. Defending points champion in Super 1600 class Jerry Whelchel was stuck in second place, in heat 1 and in the main event in his tidy special race car. Page 22 September 1993 Dusty nmcs

Aaron Hawley got one of his better results in his Super 1600 Chenowth. The Las Vegas driver finished a good fourth in the main event, first of the Vegas drivers. Ivan Stewart corners hard to stay ahead of Rick Johnson, and the lronman did, finishing second in the main event and he also was third in the first heat. Jeff Ward made an impressive debut in truck stadium racing in the Dodge. The motocross star sure knew how to fly the jumps and worked his way right into third place in the main event. incident caused a full course yellow. On the restart, Johnson figured to push George for the lead, but mechanical problems caused him to fade, eventually coming to a stop, out of the race. Meanwhile Greg George cruised to his fourth main event win of the season in the Briggsbilt. Nature's Recipe teammate Rennie Awana was second and Joe Price third· in his Triple E. For unknown reasons the Super 1600 Main was 12 laps. Jimmy Nichols hoping to follow a heat win with a main event win, was on· the pole. Nichols moved out front from the green, but Kevin Smith and Jerry Whelchel were close behind. Smith was able to get by Nichols on the lap 3, but the three leading cars were bunched tightly. Smith was able to open up some breathing room by the halfway mark, but Whelchel slipped past Nichols, setting his sights on .the leader. Kevin Smith never gave him the opportunity to get close, and went on for the win in the Mirage. Jerry Whelchel was second and Jimmy Nichols was third followed by Aaron Hawley, Marty Hart and Roger Caddell. // The UltraCross main event was ten tough laps. Kawasaki rider Brian Manley led the early part of the race with Scott Myers, Larry Brooks and Shuan Kalos giving close chase. But, it was the speed of Manley that held off points leader Kalos, Brooks and Myers for the victory. The win was the first of his career. Kalos was sec-ond, Brooks third and Myers fourth. Heading into the 12 lap main event the truckers talked about heat 2. Rick Johnson said "that had to be one of the most exciting races this series has ever seen. Lots of passing going on out there which proves this is a great track. I had to fight my way up from the back after a few of us got stuck in a corner behind a pile up. Un-fortunately one of my rear shocks blew apart going into the last lap, so I lost second and ended up. in third. But I'm ready for the main." Winner Danny Thompson said "Awesome! The Ranger was perfect. Roger Mears said "I'm not sure who is hurting more, my truck or my back. This Utah dirt is hard as a rock.

Roger Mears Jr. was on the pole, but it was the Toyota of Ivan Stewart that quickly grabbed the lead. Danny Thompson, limped off the line and was stalled by turn 2, causing a full course yellow. After the restart again it was Stewart jumping out in the lead, but this time Ford's Rob Mac-Cachren was all over him. Mac-Cachren and Stewart swapped leads several times before Stewart T-Boned MacCachren's Ford in turn 2. Rough Driving ruled that Stewart was guilty of the roll over and placed him at the back of the pack. After the restart MacCachren quickly laid claim to the lead, but Mears Jr. was knocking on the door. In amazing fashion Stewart was in fourth place by the end of the restart lap. MacCachren open-ed up a sizable lead by the halfway mark. Millen was in second, fol-lowed by Stewart, then Rick Johnson. Mears Jr. suffered a bro-ken front right wheel and started moving backwards. With only two laps to go Rob MacCachren, who seemingly had the win in hand, rolled in the Whoop-de-do sec-tion, righted the truck and held on to the lead. But the crash took its toll on the Ford, and it wasn't able to put up much of a battle as Rod Millen took the lead, and he went on to victory for Toyota. Ivan Stewart was second, followed by Rick Johnson, Jeff Ward and Walker Evans. MacCachren was unable to finish. After six of nine races Rod Millen leads truck points by 31 over Rick Johnson, Tommy Croft is tops by 71 over Larry Noel in Sport Utility, and Jerry Whelchel has 60 points on Jimmy Nichols in Super 1600.

Tha Ultra Wheels Memorial Day 100 By Barl, & Marilyn Sch.ull:{ Photos: Gregg Witte & Jeanne Brown The track was a swamp on Sunday as Class 7S took off. Here·John Greaves leads but finished second behind Jeff Kincaid, just behind him, and Jim Wiggins, far right, is moving up fast. Conditions got worse as the day went on. The Ultra Wheels Memor-ial Day Off Road 100, held at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, is one of the oldest Off Road Events in the Midwest. In fact it may date back further that the famed World Championship Race Event at Crandon, Wisconsin. Whatever its origins, this Race Event held on Memorial Day Weekend, is always a draw for both racers and fans from all over the country. The event held in 1993 was no exception despite predictions of severe weather! Promoter Kevin Dawson, also a legend among off road racers, laid out a track reminiscent of what the younger folks term "the old days": come to think of it, we older folks call it "the old days" too! To define the term "the old days" - the race events that one did not look for a large spectator turn out and trucks, buggies, cars, etc. all carried spare tires, tool boxes, and occasionally lunch and a cold one! Short course racing does not rely on carrying all of this equipment but counts on the pit crew to have it all ready, including lunch! As tradition has it, racers lined up on the infield of the existing . asphalt oval track in a modified LeMans start, took off from the asphalt via a blind jump herein referred to as The Bluff (as in Blind Man's), head down a rough straight stretch, turn a sharp horse shoe tum, and proceed down another rough straight. From there, the racer hits a straight stretch that is relatively smooth, does some sharp left, right, left cornering and heads into a serious rhythm section. The rhythm band ends with a pretty good sized jump, a short tour of the asphalt and then there it is -THE GULCH! The gulch was a two jump number that went from asphalt to asphalt and then back to The Bluff. The Gulch had an unending appetite for race vehicles! We're here to tell ya', that puppy ate 'em alive! Saturday, May 29th's pre-run saw The Gulch endo Scott Smith in his new Class 4 and leave Scott nothing to take home but crum-pled sheet metal and some motor parts. The buggy folks were taking it, by this time, one wheel at a time. More Class 4 pre-run and Tom Ferro repeated Scott Smith's performance also taking home a lot of pieces of a good looking truck. Racing was delayed while a front end loader lowered the boom on The Gulch, still leaving it as a gigantic challenge to racers but taking the destroying edge off of it for most vehicles. Tellya' what, suspension and skill were the only way to survive The Gulch. The Joliet Mud Turtles took ~ -~ Mark Oberg drove a steady but quick pace in Class 11 D and he sailed his racer into the victory, and next day he was third in Class 11 S in the rain. their positions as track patrol and hundredths of a second between the racing began!

Statezny . ., had to be thinking the "what if?' line as he drove so hard that "if' there had been one more lap so Statezny took home third, with Bekavac in second. Rod Attig, now called "the Old Man" kept up his winning ways in Class 11 action, he was second in two seat on Saturday, and came back to win in the single seat action on Sunday. Despite the weather Jeff St. Peter had a great weekend, zipping home first in Class 9/10 on Saturday, and was one of the brave ones on Sunday and he won the Class 1 /2 race in very heavy weather. Chuck Johnson and Mike Brue in the following Class 5-1600 race gave early spectators a view of what nose to tail racing is all about! As hard as he tried, Brue had to remain the "tail" end of the deal as Johnson pulled out a flag to flag win in the "nose" position. Brue gave it everything and Johnson just refused to either make a mistake or let Brue by. Brue placed a very tight second. Back tracking to the start of the race, Jeff Karlman and Tom Brockman somehow hooked their vehicles together and, still hooked up, did a full 360 degree spin putting Karlman out of the run-.· ning and leaving Brockman a full two laps down. Bill Bowles and Terry Wolfe put on a run for the money for third position. Bowles took home third, Wolfe fourth and Gary Plummer placed fifth.

When Class ·9/10 took the green flag, they became acquainted with thick fog in the form of dust, the Saturday the sun shone as Chad Schlueter flies his Ford Bronco over the not Gary Plummer flies over the "Gulch" in front of the early birds in the kind that leaves everyone but first too damp yet track on his way to second in the Class 3 competition. grandstands, and Gary ended up taking fifth in the hard fought 5-1600 battle. place in a blind race.

lb ,. /&~~ -Desert racer Chad Hall is running the SODA Series this season in a desert heavy Dodge, but he is learning the tracks and finished fifth in Class 4. Linda Lou Schlamb comes from the north, Ontario, to race the Series in her Class 4, and she mastered the "Gulch" and came in seventh in Class 4. Darrin Parsons gave it a good try in the sloppy going in his Class 11 Friday and he finished a strong second in Class 11 S in the Sunday races. Scott Taylor actually outlasted his competition from the west as Walker Evans broke a ball joint on his Class 8 Dodge. After that Taylor did his standard run away from the pack to the Class 8 victory. SODA racers Kevin Probst and Geoff Dorr absolutely flew out of the start and kept the crowd on it's feet as they waged war for first place. Probst and his GMC truck went exactly half the race in first with Dorr in his Ford trying every move to get around. Probst took the entrance to the back mogul section a little wide, Dorr grabbed the opportunity for the pass and went on to take the checkered flag. Probst made a last ditch effort to get by Dorr on the checkered flag lap, got around Dorr briefly in a comer but then Dorr shut the door for the final time. Nice work fellas! Meanwhile Jack Flannery skill-fully worked his way through the field making steady progress on both Probst and Dorr but had to _be happy with a third place firush. Gerald Foster in his Class 3 Chevy rounded out the top four. On down the finisher's list were. Chad Hall, Jerry Bundy, Linda Lou Schlamb and Dennis Chencharick. thick dust cloud, all fourteen entries got off to a clean start with Jeff Probst leading the parade for two laps before both he and Todd Attig bowed out on the rhythm section. With these two top con-tenders out of the race, Randy EIJer slipped into first place. Eller did a fantastic job of holding down his position with Jeff St. Peter right on his bumper. St. Peter put the hammer down, said "this is my race, boys" and made the pass for an extremely welJ driven first place. Eller held down second place until Lee Wuesthoff made an eleventh hour pass for second, Eller placing third. Some real hot racing action took place for fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth places with Tom Schwartzburg, Dan Baud-oux, Art Schmitt III, Brian Bemloehr and Trent Hanson flying around the track in a string of pearls formation. Schwartzburg held down fourth place for most of the race giving way to Baudoux on the white flag lap. These gentlemen put on an excellent show - thanks guys! The Gulch simply destroyed Richie Ault's machine. Ault hit the jump with as much speed as the approach would allow, began a fanny over tea kettle endo, pirouetted, went back into the end over end placement and finally came to a hard stop. Zowie, there were buggy parts everywhere including the motor which was literalJy wrenched out of the buggy and thrown aside. The buggy was also minus the right rear wheel assem-bly and the left front tire. Thank God the roll cage held and Ault emerged with no serious injury. Richie, we don't want to see any more of that. Class 8 flagged next with about three times as many entries as the previous Race Event saw! For three laps the action was in-tense with a dynamite shoot out between Scott Taylor and Walker Evans. Evans had to leave the track with a broken tierod/ball joint assembly either directly pro-ceeding a run in with a course marking tire or directly after the introduction to the tire. After Dusty Times Evans retired from the course Taylor did his usual run a way to the checkered flag. Dave Hockers drove his customary excellent race for second place. A great battle emerged between Dennis Ferdon and Jimmie Crowder for third place, Ferdon holding off Crowder lap after lap to take the position. Crowder placed fourth with Farmer John Konitzer in fifth. Both Jamey and Jed Flannery were down in the first lap. Pete Van De Hey was in the thick of things until a flat left front tire took him off the track. All in all, it was a quality race, nice work felJas! Class 4 took the LeMans start with at least double the entries from previous races and put on one heck of a show! Long time . Ya' ju~t gotta give that Greg Smith fella a whole lot of credit. Smith more or less took the entire 1992 racing season off but came back this year with skills intact, ready, willing and . able to kick some serious fanny in the Class 2-1600 race. This race had twenty starters and the only lap Smith didn't lead was lap one. Smith went on to the checkered flag in top notch form. Jim ~!ggins led Geoff Dorr got his Class 4 Ford muddy as rain bagan to fall late Saturday afternoon, but he still flew "the Gulch" in fine style, got the lead midway and won the Class 4 honors over stiff competition. Greg Smith led all but one lap of the 2-1600 race, and he led when it really counted, the last lap, and Greg came back from time off to win the class by a goodly margin on the track. September 1993 lap one and then was seen no more! Todd Crump, John Greav-es, and Roy Holmes were in the early contention for position, however, not one of these drivers was able to finish the race. Both Greaves and Crump held in there for quite awhile, in fact, Greaves was gaining on Smith until he rolled it over and had to retire. Dan Baudoux went in to second place and held it to the finish with Walt Carlson placing a tidy third. So where was the awesome Todd Attig? He was done racing at the start line with a trashed tranny. Back in the field Mark Steinhardt and Jeff Jones had been steadily working their way up and wound up in a nice battle for fourth place. It was Steinhardt in the lead until the checkered flag lap when with a mighty nice piece of work Jones made the pass and took home the position. The 2-1600 crew capped off the day's racing and damned good racing it was! The stands had been packed from start to finish and no one went away unhappy, and if they did, it was their own fault!

Bruce Shilts, really wrecked his Class 13 at Road America, but this strong contender came back in two weeks to take second in class at Lake Geneva. Ron James flew his Class 13 high over "the Gulch" for the hardy spectators and he kept it. all together to place fourth in the competitive class. Jim Wiggins was close every time he went out to race but his best finish ended up being second in Class 1-1600 after leading · most of the race. Dan Van den Heuvel flies over "the Gulch" and kept right on flying in his oad Warrior, and Dan won over a good field in the Class 13 action, which was one of the better Sunday races. Todd Attig had a good weekend, winning with a late in the race pass in Class 1-1600, was second in Class 1/2, and then went on to win the Limited Engine Challenge race in a real downpour. and powered off The Bluff singing "Splish, Splash, I Was . Taking A Bath"! Kevin Probst and Walker Evans were both bound and de-tennined to have that win giving spectators the best in competition. Evans came over The Gulch side-ways with a flat left rear tire giving Probst a lead of almost three quarters of a second. Probst must know the determination of Walker Evans as he kept the hammer down while Evans pitted for a new tire. While all of this was going on both Jack Flannery and Geoff Dorr went down on lap one, Bill Lohf hung on for three laps and Jed Flannery was still in there driving hell bent for leather in a now second place! Back at the pits Evans got his new tire and came back on the track like a man possessed. Incredible, the man and the machine flew around the swamp track playing catch up with a show that was fantastic. Time was against Evans. Probst drove to a beautiful first place, Jed Flannery placed a neat second and the incredible Evans finished third. ~ evening was gorgeous for cooking out, relaxing and bench racing. But don't think such ideal conditions lasted! By Sunday morning there was a run on rain gear and anyone wearing boots got the bum rush! Either the good people of Class 11 have a screw loose or they have monumental courage as Class 11 S took the first green flag on Sunday, May 30. After, let's say an eighth of a lap, every car's paint job was reduced to brown without any significant variation of color, just brown. Twenty-five of these brave souls lined up, took the LeMans start and away they went. With rain pouring down and The Gulch waived, this Class put on an excellent show with Rod "The Old Guy" Attig and Darrin Parsons shooting it out for first. Attig took the lead for two laps, Parsons made his move on the asphalt, Attig quickly takes it back, Parsons re-passes coming out of the rhythm section and holds it for two laps. Attig wasn't happy with that and made a move on Parsons going into the rhythm section and held the lead for the win. Parsons finished in a close second. Mark Oberg drove a consistent third place. Mike Allen had fourth place until he lost the right front wheel. Allen's misfourtune gave Dan Baudoux the opening he needed for fourth. Even without the wheel Allen hung in there for fifth. Out of the original twenty-three starters, ... twelve vehicles made it to the finish. The rain continued with a veng-eance for the 1-1600 race and The Gulch was back in operation for this race. Todd Attig had replaced the trashed tranny, and glad he had to be as he wound up with the win after a hard battle with friend Jirn Wiggins. Wiggins had the lead for the majority of the race with Attig, Jon Huss and John Greaves right on his bumper. As track conditions got worse the racing did not with Attig making the pass for the win, Wiggins settling for second and then a scorer's night-mare began!

VORRA Spring Special Text & Photos: Matt Marcher Sam Berri is back on top in Unlimited Class, taking second in the first heat, and winning the second heat, and the points in class for the day. Spring again! What a feeling, perfect days, cool nights, green fields and flowers everywhere, and we can't forget the chirping birds and ~he roar of the seventy-five VORRA racers at the VORRA Spring Special. This year the Spring Special was held at Prairie City SVRA Park in Sacramento, CA. This, the second race in VORRA 's seven race season, was the best VORRA race I've seen in years with one of the largest entries ever, and every class well represented to boot. This time there were a few mino r course changes which made for a much faster race with a new super wide far turn and removal of the off camber turn before the S IF. Although the course wasn't much for jumps it made for more flat out racing which was fine with the fans. There were twelve cars ready to run in the first Sportsman Novice heat which consists of racers with no more than two years racing experience. In this group only half the drivers have raced prior to this season. The pole position for the ·heat went to Gary Steele, with Pete Cassidy in second. Soon after the start a four car The Oddys always have a good field, and the Pilot of Michael Daws was the big winner, second in heat 1, winning heat 2 and the points and purse too. race for first developed with Steele holding the lead and Brian Campbell driving the Wes Banks Class 10 car in second. Terry Shelton ran third followed by Hooter Meyer in his Hooter's Baja. By the eighth lap Campbell had moved into the lead, Shelton was second, followed by Meyer and Steele. At the finish of the heat Gary Pinchero, in a strong two lap charge, moved up from the rear of the pack to take the lead and the win. Brian Campbell finished second with Terry Shelton in a very close third. Fourth went to Hooter Meyer while Pete Cassidy finished fifth. Gary Steele dropped back in the last few laps to end up sixth; none of the other drivers managed to finish the race. In the Sportsman Vet race there wern nine entries ready to go. On the pole was Brian Holloway with the team of Tim and Doug Mack in the number two spot. After the start it became obvious Holloway was the driver to beat. By the third lap Holloway was the clear leader, the Macks were second with Randy Miller third. The Haas Brothers in their Mini Mag were running fourth. By the sixth lap Holloway was still leading but was getting some strong pressure from the Haas team who had moved up to second, just ahead of Miller, while Glen McAdon ran fourth, closing up on Miller. The Green Valley Tire sponsored car of Tim Josh Hall had a good day in the big Dodge, winning both heats in Class 4, and taking first on the day and closing in on the points leader in the class. Roger Caddell came out of the northwest to run his Chenowth, and he was second in the first Class 10 heat, after getting stuck in the mud, won the second heat, the day's points and the cash. and Doug was back to fifth. At the checkered flag it was Holloway with the win, leading flag to flag, while McAdon finished second. The Haas team took third after a. quick rollover on the last lap while trying to pass Holloway cost them second. Randy Miller was fourth and the team of Troy Robinson and Ryan O'Callaghan in the Cargo Web sponsored car crossed the finish line in fifth. Class 9 which ran at the same time as the Vet class had four entries signed up, but only three made the grid. Forest Creasy took the pole position with Robert Milner/Vic McLean in the second spot. Paul Taylor in the All Pro car started third. By lap 3 Milner was leading with Taylor second and Creasy in third. On lap 6 there was no change in position and at the finish line it was Milner and McLean with the win followed by Taylor and then Creasy. VORRA's largest class, 1-2-1600 ran with a sixteen car field. Sean Farrell was the pole sitter with the Tyler Mort/Jon Havlick team in the number two slot. Ken Ruff held third and David Hendrickson was fourth. At the green flag the racers were off with Ruff and Mort/ Havlick in a tight battle for first. By the first lap Ruff had taken first with Mor t /Havlick close beh ind, followed by Hendrickson and Arden Dennington. Tim Riordan was fifth in a vigorous battle for that spot with the Southwest Builders sponsored car of Larry Folsom. At this paint in the race Abreu Racing dropped out when the car hit a berm and got off course, hit a ditch and was sent skyward not ten feet from me. On lap 4 Dennington rolled but was quickly righted and back in the race in no time. On lap·S Ruff and Mort/ Havlick were still at it with Ruff leading, Hendrickson held third with Riordon and Folsom still in a close battle for fourth. On the ninth lap a broken CV put Hendrickson out, giving Riordan third. At the checkers the winner was Ruff followed by Mort/ Hav-lick, Tim Riordon holding onto Jeff Elrod did not have his usual winning day, with a third and a second in the Unlimited heats, and he tied on points in second for the day. Everett Paul started out strong winning the first heat for Un-limited cars, but he fell to fourth in the second heat and tied for second on the day. Raymond Fisher had a good day in his fancy Jeep pickup, taking second in both heats and for the day in Class 4, and Fisher is the class points leader. Page n September 1993 Dusty nmes

If you are wondering why a Mini Mag is running in Class 10, don't ask, nobody knows the answer. Second on the grid was Roger Caddell in a Chenowth, Well, the destruction started quickly this race with three cars stopping in a rather tangled mess just 50 yards from the start. The Mini Mag was one that was involved and was out. Dana Van Noort wa·s also involved but managed to get going again only to drop out two laps later. Turek Zdenek was also involved but was soon back racing. On lap 3 Caddell got stuck in the mud pit, where the VORRA tractor got stuck on Saturday. Caddell was quickly pushed out by the VORRA crew and got right back in the race. By lap 4 the leader was Wes Banks followed by Ace Bradford, who was recently given the go-ahead to start racing again after the trouble at the Bend 300 last season. Mike Gust followed in third, trailed by Caddell. On lap8 Banks was way out in front but C;iddell was closing fast from second spot, just ahead of Bradford. As the checkered flag dropped Wes Banks was the winner with Caddell in second, Bradford in third and Gust in fourth.

In the first Pro heat Neal Affinto was on the pole, Ben Wald was second and Gilbert Toste third. By lap 3 the lead spot was in the hands of Scott Stewart and his CW Racing Engines powered Pilot. After eight laps Toste was holding second and Michael Daws was running third. Affinto had moved back to· fourth. On lap 6 Toste took the lead after Stewart rolled on lap 5. Daws was running a close second and Affinto was third. At the finish the winner was Gilbert Toste. Daws finished second followed by Affinto then Ben Wald, In the Novice heat only two of· the three entries made it to the start line, but the two did have a fun time. At the midway point Andy Wald was leading with Keith Haas second Wald ende up winning, with Haas a close second.

The Organizing Committee for the 1993 .RANCHO SUSPENSION/ ''Rod Hall Invitational'' RENO/PYRAMID 300 Off-Road race, scheduled for August 21, wishes to announce that the race has been rescheduled for: APRIL 29,. 30, May 1, 1994 This rescheduling has been made necessary by the fact that the site for this year's race [the Pyramid Lake Paiute Reservation] is currently em~roiled in serious Tribal conflict that has seen Recall Election a~tion taken against the current Tribal administration, which swept into power in June of this year. The new adminstration has taken the stance that all contracts and agreements entered into by the previous administration are ''null and void.'' Wholesale firings, resignations and closed-door meetings are the order of the day at the Reservation. Rather than send drivers and fans into such a hostile and unstable environ-ment, the Organizing Committee has opted for an alternate site for the race. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and we are still look-ing forward to seeing you in Reno in 19941 RANCHO SUSPENSION 11ROD HALL INVITATIONAL

By Hootin Wells Sam's fast lap would be slowed with suspension difficulties. Sam would be able to fix the problem and come back to take third in class with a 10:51:27 time. Norm Crume of Ontario, OR. in his Norm's Auto Electric sponsored race car would be the number one runner at this year's race taking the overall win with a great time. Norm told me "We had a flawless run until the last lap when- I hit a boulder, a big boulder, I thought I broke the car." This was hard to believe since Norm set his fastest lap of the day on the final lap running a . 2:03:09 setting the time to beat .

Raymond Fisher drives a Jeep J-10 Honcho in Clas 4, and it's nice to have windows in this silt. Fisher and company finished a good second in Class 4. Don German took turns with his son Chris driving the Class 4 open Jeep, and Don drove consistent times to bring the older car home third in class. Mike Livermore really shoots up a rooster tail with his Sports-man Veteran car, and he kept right on running hard and fast to take second in Vet Class. Joe Copening came from Portland, OR to fly through the :jilt in his Baja Bug, and Joe kept it all together and captured third place in Sportsman Vet class. Paul Taylor's Class 9 is in this cloud of silt somewhere, but he recovered enough to carry on for second place with just two laps completed. Forest Creasy gets a bit of silt in his car but he managed to cover the three laps for Class 9, and he made it home to pick up third in class. Scott Schuapp and Dlck Wiechers in their D & S Dismantlers sponsored single seater ran fast and clean all day, no problems and they won 1-2-1600 class. ~ 3 spot belonged to the father and son team of Don and Chris German of Petaluma, CA, in their single seat Jeep.

Gordon Scott in his Jeep was a strong contender until the last lap, being off the pace and dropping back to fourth place running a 11:46:01.

The Haas Brothers of Lodi, CA, in their Mini Mag, set fastest lap in class running a 2:23:09 on their sprint to the finish line. Their three lap race time was an awesome 7:29:52. The next competitor was over 15 minutes back. Running times consistent with the majority of the Pro classes makes you wonder where would Frank and Floyd have been if they had run in an Open class. Mike Livermore of Seaside, CA, was as smooth as can be, running hard and taking second place with a 7:44:00 time. Mike's only problem was getting swallowed by a silt bed. Joe Copening of Portland, OR, in his Baja Bug ran consistent and strong, giving him the number 3 spot in class with a 7:58:51 finish. Sportsman Novice started 10 strong but only had one finisher.

Not bad for his first desert race. The team of Teri and Erick Schroth had a tough day running two laps of four hours each. They did go further than the next car back to pick up second in class. Third in class would go to Matt Oliphant, co~pleting two of the-three laps. The Class 9 cars were few with four starters and on 1 y one finisher. The team of Robert Milner and Vic McLean ran strong all day and were there in the end with a 9: 13:24 finish time. Paul Taylor ran two laps to pick up second place in class but wouldn't be around for the third. Forest Creasy would take third, being the final racer in class to complete three laps. All the Sportsmen ran hard. Some too hard, but they all deserve to be congratulated. The last class off the line were the Pilots. This year was the first for this class. The field was six strong a.t the start. Running one 100 mile lap was too much for many of the racers in this class, with only three taking the checkered flag. Robert Slagle picked up the first place trophy running the lap in 2:42:20. The number 2 spot was filled by Miles Berghold running only minutes behind the leader with a 2:43:58 finish. Mike Vandeburgh captur-ed the third position sliding in one minute and two seconds off the second place finisher with a 2:44:56 time. This year's race was one to remember. The silt and the occasional water hole left by the winter run off kept the drivers on their toes. The next VORRA event will be. the Virginia City Classic 200, another desert race. Frank and Floyd Haas run their small Mini Mag in the Sportsman Veteran There were ten in Sportsman Novice class but Rookie Charlie Ketten ran like a class, and they sailed through the silt in fine shape to win the class by 15 Pro all day and he grabbed first place in the class in the Coyote chassis. minutes.

CRANDON'$ SPRING RUN 101 True Value World Championship Off Road Race Photos: Jeanne Brown Cory Friday in one of his dad's chassis, took off in the opening Saturday race and never looked back, leading Class 11 Dall the way to the checkered flag in the soggy going on course. The Land Rush start to the first wide sweeping turn is a Crandon landmark, and here Todd Attig leads a buggy class on the best line, while some went too wide, and others, out of sight are into the inside berm. It is exciting and tends to stretch out the field early in a race. John Wiggins is beginning to off road race, and is starting in Class 11 in a car Class 8 race in Crandon was on -brother Jim built Jor him, and he was fourth in the 26 entry Class 11 o. Crandon, Wisconsin's Spring Run 101 really happened on the first weekend of summer, but you wouldn't have known it. A fierce rainstonn battered the town the day before, and clouds hovered overhead all weekend, while a gusty wind brought out the jackets and long pants. On Friday, which is generally scheduled for a fast lap comp-etition called "Hot Laps"., there were a couple of massive puddles on the low lying parts of the course, and a big pump was working full time to drain the water off. No one wanted to try to drive on the course. But by Saturday morning things were looking pretty good, and the water trucks filled up in preparation for later in the day. One thing about Crandon, the water trucks have a ready source of supply in the two ponds adjacent to the track. It's mighty muddy looking ~ater, but it serves to hold down the dust. At about nine a.m. the rear engined cars, buggies and Baja Bugs, led off the "pre-run", which consisted of about 20 minutes of practice, sometimes as exciting as a race, as drivers tested their vehicle's limits. Then the trucks got a chance to try, and gave the early arriving spectators a taste of things to come, as the drivers warmed up their high horsepower motors. It was windy and cold, but beautiful. There'd been more than enough rain to make everything green and lush in tlie surrounding woods, and wildflowers grew profusely along the highways. Early in the day, and during every lull in the action, birds pursued their mates, trilled their melodies and channed the nature lovers. And very early on Sunday a lone young eagle rode a breeze above . the flag pole, wondering what all the fuss and noise was about· This year there was a reorganization of the schedule,. which put the Class 8 race,. usually a late Saturday event, over into early Sunday morning_. The purpose was to accommodate Walker Evans, who'd entered very early in the scheme of things, and then had the Salt Lake City stadium race dropped· onto the same weekend. He worked out a schedule that made it possible to drive both events, but it meant racing Saturday night in Salt Lake, then a quick flight in the sponsoring Barbary Coast Hotel's plane to Rhinelander, and the 30 minute drive into Crandon. If the Michael Brue takes the checkered flag in his 5-1600 for yet another victory in this class as his competiton faded but he still had some early dices to make him work for the win. · Page 40 Saturday, Walker couldn't make it, so the promoting group made a rare decision to change their sche-dule. Evans and his crew were delighted to get to run both events. Even with the change, there was plenty of racing on Saturday: The first group, Class 11 two seaters, started things off with a rush as 26 of the little buggies swarmed out onto the track, led by Cory Friday in his low slung Friday chassis. Right behind him were Rod Attig in his Tenninator, then Dan Baudoux in a Mirage, Mark Steinhardt, and Billy Scott in a Scott chassis. The wind had dried the track so well that some parts of the course were dusty, but here and there were gooey pud-dles, and the cars were soon mud daubed, and the score kee~rs had to look hard to find some of the numbers. Friday had everything work-ing right and lengthened his lead, while Baudoux mov~d finnly up to second, followed by Steinhardt, then Attig and Scott. Meanwhile, Keith Berard, who'd been about seventh on the first lap, was mov-ing up nicely in his Friday, his implement tires on the rear ,apparently working well on this all · ·track. On the fourth lap it was . Friday, Baudoux and Steinhardt, but on the fifth lap Berard had taken over third, and Steinhardt dropped two positions. Baudoux was taking the jumps harder with his newly angled up rear sus-pension, and Richard Woulf moved up to fourth in his Woulf/ Chenowth. They ran that way to the end of the race, which, for this class was nine laps long. Dave Johnson broke his front end, and Mark Oberg lost a rear tire, but for the most part, the field just kept coming around, so· evenly matched that it was very hard to, pass, especially with muddy booby traps and healthy sized rocks waiting along the edges of the track. · At the finish it was Friday, Baudoux, Berard, Woulf and Steinhardt. But Berard and Woulf were later disqualified on the grounds that they'd run illegal fuel, and that moved Steinhardt up to third, John Wiggins into fourth and Mark Oberg to fifth place. These folks reported that the worst mud was down by the quarry, but that the course was pretty nice, and just a little slick here and there. Gerald Foster is having a great year ·n his newly acquired Class 3 Chevy Blazer; he and two others ran away from the rest of the field and F_oster won Class 3, scoring for the group from f"1r>ois. September 1993 For this year there was a small procedural change in the fonnat of the races, in that rather than being 20 minute events, each class had a given number of laps to run. Thus, Class 11 had run a nine lap race, and so would the 5-1600s, which were up next, but other classes would go around more often, or less often, and- the longest events would be made up of 12 laps. The 5-1600s were pleased to have the track all to themselves and not have to run behind the Class 10 cars, and they all made it through the first turn safely. Michael Brue had jumped to the forefront, with Terry Wolfe running right on his heels, and Bill Bowles was third, working hard to get by Wolfe. Greg Smith ran fourth. Brue was having a smooth day, and held his lead, while Bowles finally worked by Wolfe on the third lap, to move into second. Smith's transmission stuck in second gear and he fell way back, while Stuart Dahlin, from far away South Dakota, moved into fourth place. They ran that way until the eighth lap when Wolfe pulled off and parked just below the flag tower. Brue, whose car is a "grandfathered' in Class 5 car, with more sophisticated suspension than a genuine 5-1600 is permitted, also admits to having put a lot of money in the motor of his convertible. He went on to take the win, never being challenged, and having no problems, describing the course as "perfect." Bowles, another grandfathered Class 5 car. took second, and his wife, Maxine, who rode with him. said she tried pinching him on the leg to make him go faster. In third it was Dahlin, whose cru is a reaJ 5-1600, and who'd had to start at the back of the pack because he'd been a late entry. Karim an. another reaJ 5-1600, had been sQueezed into the pit wall off the DustyTimes

Bill Bowles was an early contender in Class 5-1600, but he couldn't quite catch the leader, so he worked through early traffic to place second. Milan Mazanec comes from way up north in Ontario, Canada to race at Crandon, and he stayed on the lead lap in his Class 3 Ford, had a good race to second. Rob Roberts ran third most of the Class 3 race in his Ford Bronco, and kept the position to the flag as some of the hard chargers dropped out of the race.

On the last lap Attig was slowed up by a lapped car, and Smith got up close on his rear , bumper, but Todd woke up in time to save his win. The rest followed along in order, Smith, 1l Wiggins, Greaves and Jones. · Huss, who drove the whole thing without his front tire, was the most entertaining part of the race, and he completed l O laps, for 11th place. Todd Attig won Class 2-1600 on Saturday, was second in 1-1600 on Sunday and was second in the limited Engine Challenge, and won Class 1 /2; he was a busy man. The Class 4 race was next on the docket, and as some drizzly rain fell, the trucks blasted through the dust of the first turn. Kevin Probst, in a Chevy, had the lead through the first tum. but Jack Flannery went past him on the long sweeper and took over. Geoff Dorr ran third in a Ford, . with Ken Kincaid in fourth in his Ford, racing for the first time in four years. Tom Ferro ran fifth in another Ford. Beck nosed into the wall going around the timing tower, and fell back about five positions. As they came around turn one the second time, with Greaves still in front and Wiggins second, Kincaid and Taylor were side by side, banging off each other, and they continued to battle for a couple of laps, going by Wiggins in the process. Then Kincaid lost oil pressure and pulled out, leaving Taylor in second, behind Greaves, whose hood was lifting a bit at the left corner. On the sixth lap he'd dropped back to third, after a quick stop to remove his hood, hoping to let his overheated motor cool off. Taylor, now in front, gradually pulled out a long lead. His truck, which he says has been subjected to some Jack Rousch technology in the motor, sounding very healthy. Wiggins was second now, and Jimmie Crowder, from Tallahassee, Florida, in a Ford that used to belong to Taylor, was third. Dave Woulf ran fourth in another Ford followed by William Waterstradt, and then Greaves, whose truck still ran hot. Taylor had no trouble at all, a rare occurrence for him in this class, and took the win handily. Wiggins, who'd lost his rear brakes, was second, and Crowder, new to mini trucks, finished third. He said he'd discovered that "It's a lot of fun (but you) have to mash it hard all the time." Woulf was fourth and W aterstradt fifth, and · they had all completed eight laps. The 2-1600s got to start at about 3: 15, with a crowd of 22 cars pushing and shoving their way through that first tum. And this time Attig got his Terminator to the front, and made it through , followed by Greg Smith in a Wheel Service Chassis, then Jim Wiggins in a Wiggins/Berrien, and John Greaves in a Taylor chassis. Baudoux's Mirage started to smoke, and he never came around again, and on the third lap John Huss lost his right front tire, and Mark Steinhardt · managed only two laps, which was better than Brad Erickson's drive, which ended in a rollover near the pond after the first turn. But the majority of the class stayed healthy and continued to run, with Attig firmly in the lead, and Smith in pursuit, and Wiggins chasing him. Next was John Greaves, and then Jeff Jones. They ran in that order for 11 laps, and the most noteworthy thing happening on the track was that Attig used a different line on one section of the course than everyone else did. He said it kept him out of "the greasy stuff." The wags in the infield tried to come Jim Wiggins hopped out of his truck into his 1600 buggy, here leading at the first turn, and he went on to run in the lead pack, finishing third in Class 2-1600, 22 starters strong, and was thrid in the Challenge race too. September 1993 They ran in that order for several laps, and a faint smell of clutch or brake wafted over the infield every now and then. On the fifth lap Probst pulled out, his motor gone, and that moved Dorr up into second, with Kincaid in third, Ferro fourth and Chad Hall, Rod Hall's son, from Reno, Nevada, in a Dodge, enjoying his first season of SODA racing, in fifth. But his truck had been emitting puffs of smoke every now and then. For another two laps they held their positions, and then, sure enough, Hall was gone, as his motor bit the dust. That put Gerald Foster, in a Class 3 car, up into fifth for a lap, but it was his last lap, and then Bill Lohf slid up to replace him. The drizzle had dried up by now, but it was still windy. Flannery had slowed some, and his die hard fans (all of Crandon) knew it was because he didn't need to run so hard. 'cause no one could catch him anyway. But it turned out that he was without power steering for the last six laps, and he was tiring. It was hard work. Still, no one could catch him, and he got the win, with Dorr, who still ·thinks his suspension is a little too soft, in second place. Kincaid was pleased to finish so well after his long layoff, and Ferro, who sometimes has trouble finishing at all, was delighted to be in fourth. Lohf survived a last lap collision with a lapped car that almost did him in, to take fifth place. None of the others were on the same lap. In the break between the Class 4 race and the next event a little drama took place in the Dusty Times

Now the question him. Notary, who runs implement was, could Evans last the rest of tires on the front of his car, was the way? Page 44 Flannery began to pull out a longlead,withEvanssecond,and then Van den Heuvel moved up to second for a while, but his truck started to smoke and then dropped out. Evans was back in second place, with Crowder in third, and Jed Flannery, Jack's son, in Dave Parsons' Chevy, in fourth place. -Jack bo·moed around a couple more laps to take the win, calhng it a "perfect run", while Walker zipped right past the finish line interviews to get his truck to the pit. Crowder was third, and Jed Flannery, who'd had a bobble in his carburetion, finished fourth, with Hockers fifth. They had all finished nine laps. While the trucks hurried off to make repairs, the Class 11 single seaters, who would normally have been the first race of the day, were waiting for their green flag. This relatively late morning start meant that they got a drier track than they are accustomed to, because it's usually overwatered just before the first race, and for a change the spectators could see that the Class 11 cars sport a rainbow of bright graphics . on their body panels. they are not uniformly mud brown as has been believed for years. The sun still hadn't come out from behind the clouds as the 26 little buggies took to the track, most of them got through the first tum, but John Wiggins took a hit in the front end that took off a front wheel. Billy Scott, in his Scott chassis, had the lead, with Mark Oberg, in a Gilson chassis in second. Keith Berard was third, with Dan Baudoux fourth in his Mirage, and Rod Attig, in a Terminator in fifth. Mark Stein-hardt seemed to be stuck in one gear, and Jirn Schuster parked in the weeds. Berard quickly moved past Oberg and Scott to take the lead, and on the third lap Scott held second place, Baudoux was third, Oberg was fourth and Darrin Parsons was fifth. The first four cars ran in a tight group, and then there was a space, and the next five were tightly clumped, with a lot of hard driving as they fought for eighth or ninth place .. Berard motored along in first and second, and Oberg, who'd passed Scott on the seventh lap, in third, Parsons was fourth, and Scott, who'd broken a shock landing hard off the big jump, was in fifth place. The between race break gave a couple of fellows with Super-Lights a chance to do a little demonstration race for the mid-westemers. Phil Doyle and Holgeir Oksnevad put on a quick little race, .on a small portion of the track, that had the spectators and the infield bystanders very inter-ested. These little stadium racers haven't been seen in person in the midwest, and the two gentlemen are trying to get a class going. Their spirited demo sparked a lot of excitement. They were told by the Crandon folks that if they'd get a group together in time for the fall event they'd be more than welcome at their track. The next event was the Rear Engine Limited Challenge, for buggies with limited motors, which meant the one and two seat 1600s, and a few 5-1600s. For the most part these were the same folks who'd started the day off with the 1-1600 event, so they were having a busy morning. When they rounded the first turn it had a familiar look, with Greg Smith out in front, Todd Attig in second place, and John Greaves in third. Jim Wiggins ran fourth, Mark Steinhardt, who'd just finished his Class 11 event, was fifth, and John Huss ran sixth. As they flew off the big jump the first time, there was some crowding, and Bill Brown splashed to a landing in the back pond, parked up to his seat bottom in muddy water. By the time he was extri-cated, he was a lap down. The lead cars began to string out; Smith, Attig, Greaves and Wiggins, with Jeff Jones now in fifth as Steinhardt dropped back. they ran that way for five laps, and then as Attig tried fruitlessly to get by Smith, Wiggins was suddenly in third place, and Greaves back in fourth. They continued in that order to the finish, Attig not quite able to get Smith, and Greaves not able to get back around Wiggins. On the eighth lap, Brown, still damp from his dunking, was hit in the head with a flying rock, and coasted into the infield to park. The paramedics were with him immediately, and wanted to take him to the hospital, which he refused. He was handed over to his pit crew, with advice to seek medical attention. In the meantime, Smith had scored another win, with Attig, Wiggins Greaves and Jones finishing behind him. Said Greg, "Everything hooked up!" The Class 6 and 7 Challenge was next, and this event pits one of Crandon's favorite sons, Fay Statezny and his Chevelle. against the mini trucks. Statezny has the horsepower, the trucks have the suspension .. And sure enough, as they rounded the first turn it was Statezny in front, with Scott Taylor's Ranger on his heels. Then came Wiggins in his truck, and Tom Hackers, Jim Bradley, and Jimmie Crowder, all in trucks. As they rounded turn one the next time it was still Statezny in front, but Taylor was close and so was Wiggins, all pushing very hard. Then; when Wiggins took the first jump his truck nosed in and he went end over end. Jim was o.k., but his truck was definitely not. Meanwhile, the battle raged at the front, and when they got to turn one the next time, Taylor was in front, with Statezny second. Hockers was third, and Crowder ran fourth. On the next lap they came through the first turn in the same order, but as Statezny landed off the first jump a ball joint broke, and he pulled over in front of the barn and parked. That left the race to the trucks, except for Gary Bradley, who ran the only other Class 6 car, a Pontiac, which wasn't sounding very healthy. Bradley smoothly, but Baudoux was grad-ually creeping up on Scott. He was right there on the sixth lap, and on the seventh lap he · went past him into second place, and took out after Berard. Keith thought his car was getting a little loose in the front, and wasn't paying much attention to what went on behind him, until Dan was close enough to be a threat. Then he started to hurry again, and Baudoux couldn't quite get him. It was an excitingly close finish, with Berard and Baudoux ·Jack Flannery won Class 8 in the Chevy as it turned into a real survival exercise. Flannery went by leader Wafker Evans, who was suffering with overheat, and for once had a trouble free race for himself, not common these days. September 1993 DustyTimcs

Sunday opened with Class 1-1600 action and Michael Notary came all the way from Florida to try this famous race and he finished fourth in Class 1-2-1600. John Huss started racing 1-1600 last season and his Taylor ran good last June and he ended up taking frfth place in Class 1-1600 on Sunday. Jack's oldest son Jed Flannery zipped in close in Class 8 action driving a Chevrolet of course, and Jed came home fourth in the wild Class 8 action. has competed in every Brush Run race since day one; this was his 24th race in Crandon. Taylor gradually pulled out a long lead, and Crowder tried to catch Hockers, but couldn't get it done. Taylor, who reported that everything was "perfect", took the win, followed in by Hockers and then Crowder, and also on the lead lap, Bill Waterstradt. None of the others made the 10 laps. Next came the Rear Engine Unlimited Challenge, always a destruction derby of sorts, because, since it's one of the last races of the weekend, the drivers let out all the stops, and many of the cars are already on their last legs. There were 11 cars on the starting grid, and when they rounded tum one, it was Todd Attig in front, his Alfa Romeo powered Terminator looking very strong still. Behind him were Art Schmitt. Jeff Probst, Don Ponder and Lee Wuesthoff. When they came around the next time, Ponder had moved up to second, and Dan Baudoux had pulled out when his motor started to seize. Bob Walther, driving the Chevy powered two seater, had stalled on the start line and was a lap down, but running strong, though his suspension didn't seem up to the challenge. The lead cars were Attig, Ponder, Probst, Wuesthoff and Scott Schwalbe. Attig continued to lead, with Ponder second, and Probst trying to get around him. Schwalbe moved up to fourth, and Wuest-hoff was now fifth. On the fifth lap Jeff St. Peter moved into the fifth spot, passing Wuesthoff. On the sixth lap Attig's motor went up in smoke as he dropped down into the quarry, and while the comer workers applied fire extinguishers to the flames, Pon-der, who runs a VW bus trans-mission with his Chevy motor, took over the lead. Probst disap-peared at almost the same mom-ent, and Schwalbe moved up to second, with St. Peter third and Wuesthoff, who had a bent hub, which caused his trailing arm to rub on his brake rotor, was fourth with Schmitt in fifth, playing catchup after stalling in the first tum on the second lap. Not only was Schmitt fifth, he was the last car on the lead lap. Walther's two seater got sideways on the Tum One hill and rolled, so he was also out now. From this point on there were no changes. Ponder's little Chevy motor performed beautifully, and he had no problems, taking the win with a long lead. Schwalbe, running a 2.8 liter Porsche motor, was second, St. Peter, with his 1650cc Rabbit, third. Schmitt was fourth and Wuesthoff, also with a 1650cc motor, finished fifth. The next race was actually the main event of the day. Everyone looks forward all weekend to the 2x4 and 4x4 Production Challenge, which pits the Class 8s and Class 4s against one another. Twenty-four trucks took the green flag, and the red Class 4 Ford of Geoff Dorr was first around the first tum. Hard behind him was Jack Flannery in his Class 4 Chevy, and then came Greg Gerlach in his Class 4 Dodge, and finally, Walker Evans in his Class 8 Dodge. The 4x4's COAST 1-800-634-6755 had made good use of all those drive wheels, to get to the front of the pack. Jamey Flannery ran fifth in the Flannery Class 8 Chevy. When they came around the next time, Jack Flannery was in front, and Dorr was parked with a broken case, cracked when his front driveshaft fell out. Gerlach was second, Evans third. and Jamey was fourth, with Bill Lohf in fifth place. Scott Taylor had a flat left front tire, and had pitted to get a new one, so was now nearly dead last. Evans was blowing water again, his overheating problem not having been cured in the interim. Flannery continued to lead, but Evans moved up to second, with Gerlach third, Jamey fourth, and Chad Hall, in his Dodge, up to fifth, with Chuck Johnson riding along, giving him pointers on how to drive Crandon. On the third lap Flannery developed a left rear flat, Evans ran second, Gerlach third, Flannery fourth and Hall fifth. Jimmie Crowder, who'd gone into the pond the first time around, ~~ working his way up through trafhc. Flannery was ignoring the flat, but Walker was closing in. Gerlach held third, Jamey fourth and Hall fifth, as they threaded through the lapped cars. But then Jack pitted for a tire change. Now Evans was in the lead, Gerlach was second, and Jamey had a right rear flat. Hall was fourth and Tom Ferro ran fifth, with Crowder, feeling ever more confident in the big truck, trying to get past him. On the seventh lap Evans developed a low right rear tire, which he ignored. Gerlach was second. and Jamey ran on his very low tire in third, followed by Hall and Crowder, who'd got past Ferro. Taylor, who'd worked his way up from last to about I 0th, had also come down with a right rear flat. People were scratching their heads, wondering what was going on:. Evans held the lead, flat and all, followed by Gerlach and Jamey Flannery. still also on a flat, then Crowder and Jack Flannery, who'd -~ Las \Jeg·as, Nevada -DustyTimcs September 1993 Page 45

Class 11 S started 26 cars and it was a real struggle to pass when all have equal power, but Billy Scott moved through the pack to finish fifth. While Scott Taylor won the Class 6 & 7 Challenge in his Ford Tom Hackers finished a fine second in the Challenge and he was also driving a Ford. In the big iron Challenge Greg Gerlach has Walker Evans right behind him, and despite ~ flat tire Walker carried on to take the championship home to California. Walker Evans had a good lead in Class until he had to slow down with overheat, but the desert veteran knew how to get it to the finish line and was second in Class 8. Later Evans won the Challenge race. ~ worked back up through traffic after getting his tire change. Taylor was still driving on ·ms flat also. On the white flag lap Evans led, complete with flat, followed by Gerlach, the flat tired Jamey Flannery, then Jack, and Crowder, who seemed to be immune to the flat epidemic. Evans took the win, saying in a quiet aside, "I lucked out.", as his truck sat on its flat and steamed. Gerlach, whose transfer case puked a bug puddle of oil on the finish line, was second, followed in by Jack Flannery, and then Crowder, who said of his side trip into the pond, "I was goin' 'gator huntin'!". Jamey Flannery, his tire shredded by now, was fifth, and Ferro finished sixth. they all completed nine laps. Women's Rear Engine Unlimited and Limited Challenge, with 18 cars taking the green flag. This is actually two races, with the Class 11 cars starting a few seconds behind the limited 1600 buggies and bugs. In the first group the familiar number "792" was out in front, as Rhonda Smith piloted the family car into the lead. She had Tracy Crump running second, and Shannon Haenlein third. They ran that way for two laps, and behind them Tina Crowder had a problem keeping her buggy headed straight, and she did a couple of 360s, but finally got it under control. The next event _was Crump took over the lead on lap three, with Smith in second and obviously trying to get back around her. Then Sherry Hearley created a diversion by rolling at the base of Turn One, just into the the edge of the pond. Course workers Simplythe Best!

And, while everyone was watching the rescue, Smith went back into the lead. Crump was second again, and Haenlein ran third. And that's the way they finished their eight lap event, with Crowder in fourth place.

Chapala Dusters Race Review By H. Henesey The Chapala Dusters July meeting was packed due to news that Sal Fish from SCORE was to be present to discuss the changes by SCORE for the 1994 season. Unfortunately, Sal was unable to show, but the folks from La Rana Racing showed up to discuss their racing program. First though, came the stories of the racing at the SCORE Fireworks 250 held in Barstow. Danny Porter and Mark Ruddis in 1603 were having a tough first lap with carburetor problems when the needle and seat came loose. Lucky for them, they were assisted by a fellow Duster, Steve Poole in car 907, who helped to get them on their way. Danny and Mark continued on to place 9th in Class. . Steve Poole was not ·as fortun-ate. Even though he had done his good deed for the day, he was not able to complete a lap. Mark Fry took along his sister Michelle Fry in car 1026, and was in the race for 35 miles until the car broke. After hearing the race stories, we were treated to slides taken by Bill Thompson of Carrera Photo of the SCORE and La Rana races. Then things really got stirred up when it came time to discuss the Chapala Dusters support of the La Rana races. In the past, the Dusters have always had pit boxes Wisconsin and equipment available for thost who ran the La Rana races. A• every meeting, the room wa: polled as to who would bt running the next race. No answe1. from the room, the meetin~ would continue. Why then, at tht next La Rana race, would there be a few of the Duster's member1 competing and usually runnin~ separate pits? Communicate folks!! Official word now spoken or Chapala Duster support at U Rana races: The Chapala Dusten do support those racing La Rana Most important though, is if ym want to have a solid pitting effort you must show up at the meetings! The pit equipment ii available for use, but if the number of entries are low, a pit.,..... meeting may not be schedulec and it will be up to you to get the pit boxes. Due to the few numbet of SCORE races left on the schedule for the rest of the year, 2 larger turnout of Dusters ii forecasted for the La Rana races. August races on the schedule are the SCORE Gold Coast 300 and the La Rana Johnson Valley 200 Next Chapala Duster meeting ii August 11 at the Me-N-Eds Pizzz in Garden Grove.

LA RANA DESERT RACING Larry Minor Wins The Luceme Valley Jam 150 By Carol "Scoop" Clark Photos: Trackside Photo Inc. Larry Minor, the younger, is filling some famous shoes, and doing it well. With Kyle Taylor driving the first two "laps the pair scorched the field in the Class 1 Chevy, having only one broken wheel for trouble and they won overall by about two minutes: Contingency for this event was quite interesting, it was about 40 to 45 miles away from where the race started instead of where it • usually is, at the Community Center in Lucerne Valley. The Cocky Bull played host to the racers for this event and I hear that is the place to be for all future events too. I, personally don't think this is a very convenient location for Contingency, however I'm not a racer or the promoter, nor for that fact, a Contingency sponsor, so I'm sure my opinion just doesn't matter. As long as all those who participate in this event are happy, that is all that matters. Considering the fact that the Fireworks 250 race was just around the comer, there were a surprising number of entries in this race. There were 95 entered, 90 starters and 45 finishers, which is very high. The fastest guy out on the course was the Class 150 truck of Larry Minor, which was Larry L. Minor, the son of Larry Minor, the name we have heard so often. When my crew and I were at our pit location out on Bessemer Mine Road, we could hear the truck coming off in the distance and then he was just a red and white streak when he came by us. That truck looked like it was a rocket, not a speck of trouble all day, his lap time went from 1:27:44 to 1:21:30. The first 2 laps were driven by co-driver Kyle Taylor, who did not waste one minute getting around the course. He turned the truck over to Larry in first place and Larry jumped in and kept it there. Talking to the boys after the race they told me that they just had too much fun. One thing that did happen to them was a wheel broke on the • first lap, but that was replaced within a matter of seconds and they were off to victory circle in no time flat. The fastest lap for these guys was their second lap, which averaged out to almost 48 mph. Must be fun boys, you did a fine job, winning overall. -,.,.,A,,. ,_ , ~ There were only three vehicles in Class 150 and only two finishers. The second to finish was Ron Stobaugh, who Pauley and Jon landiorio zipped the two seat Mirage around the dusty race course, with only a broken throttle cable for trouble. They won Class 1-2-1600 by over 11 minutes and placed a swift fifth overall. ? /-~ ,r"·,;:r' .• , .... .., ~-' ~ ..l,$-.i:; ~•;:t.:. '/ Steve Krieger and Tim Clark were so close in second overall, two minutes, with just one flat tire to slow their pace and they won Class 8 in the Chevy by two full laps. ,-;:J:J.:. Craig Dillon and Mike Harman got it all together this round and drove the Lothringer to victory in Class 10 by a margin of about 15 minutes and also came in third overall. took second in class and 20th overall, which was not too shabby since he is a first year racer. I did not get to talk to him at the finish •line, but got to hear him at the awards on Sunday. He wanted to thank his sponsors, Dick Cepek, BFGoodrich, Rancho Suspension and all the pit crew who took care of them all day. He said he had a great time and is looking forward to the next race. Billy Bunch was the third entry in Class 150, but once again he did not see the checkered flag. We saw his truck come by our pit area twice and the next time we saw the truck it was on a trailer heading home as we were making our way to the finish line. I did not hear what happened, but it must have been serious enough to not to try to fix it and continue on. In Class 200 we had a total of six starters and only one official finisher _and that was Doug Cast-illo's old partner, Chris Heryford. It was nice to see him out on the course again and this time in first place too. He and co-driver Jeff Kawell did have their share of trouble. On the last lap, everything seemed to go wrong, they had a flat and then they lost the rack & pinion, which caused a total down time of an hour and a half. These guys said this was the worst course they had ever been on. It was just too rough for them. but I think their opinions may have changed a little after they got cooled _off and relaxed a little bit. I know they have been around this sport long enough to know that off roading is by no means a wimpy sport. They've got what it takes to get out and tackle any course any time. Steve Holladay and crew led midway, then dropped out, taking second in class. Class 8 had three starters and only one finisher, that was the team of Steve Krieger and Tim Clark. These fellows are becoming a pretty familiar sight at the finish line and usually in first or second place. They had a flat on the second lap and are sure that that was the only reason they did not get first overall. They estimated about 8 minutes down time with the flat and in comparing lap times with the Minor truck, I'd say they would have finished within inches of each other if they both had a trouble free race. The third lap showed only 10 seconds differ-ence in their times, so they were both cooking right along. Steve and Tim wanted to thank their sponsors, Justice Brothers, Ultra Wheel and Tranny Mike's for all the support. Rick Holmes man-aged to get in two laps before parking it and our buddy Tom Coon gave it hell for the first lap and then we never saw him again. Chris Heryford, Skip and Jeff Kawell had all their woes on the first lap and a lot of down time, but they got back on track in the Raceco and ended up winning Class 2 by a couple of laps. Tom Koch and Rex Keeling had three time costing flats and a variety of other problems on their way to second in Class 10 and a quick fourth overall. Class 1600 had 23 starters and 8 finishers, which is a real good percentage. Leading the pack was the team of Ed Pauley Page 48 September 1993 Dusty Times

Brad Inch debuted his brand new Lothringer at this race, had some new car woes but finished less than a minute out of third in Class 1-2-1600, 8th 0 /A.

It was nice to see a new face in first place, not that I don't enjoy all of you, but this team hasn't done too well. They try hard, but something major always happens that seems to put them out of the race. John said that their only problem was a broken throttle cable on the last lap on the Mirage. They had about 7 minutes down time replacing the cable, but that was the extent of their trouble. They thought it was a great race and they were playing cat and mouse with Bob Stockton most of the day until Bob broke a plug and it took so long to figure out what was wrong, they just parked it for the day. minutes behind Davis. He forgot about the noise and started having fun on the last lap. Brad Inch took fourth place in the 1600 class, finishing just about a minute behind Randy. Brad is still getting his new Lothringer car dialed 'in and it looks like it is doing pretty good so far. Class 3 had the one lone entry, the Jeep of Mike Duncan, the 4x4 Doctor and he only got in two laps, so there were no finishers in this class. ; Class 500 had one entry and one finisher, so looks like that would be a 100% ratio for that class. I got to interview the co-driver, A.J. Martin who got to drive the last three laps after having the car turned over to him by Rick Henry. I guess Rick be-came disillusioned when he broke the stub axle before the end of his first lap and just wanted to tum it over to AJ, who is the son of Steve Martin of Martin Brothers racing fame. AJ said that there were no problems on the second and third laps after they got the stub axle replaced, but towards the very end of the third lap he felt something wrong and pulled over to find a CV boot in dire need of some tape, so properly applied the tape and took off for the last lap. He lost third gear just before check one and was moving along pretty good until someone was dead stopped on a hill in front of them, having run out of gas. So this just meant they had to finish the race in 2nd and 4th gears, but it was do able (?) and they did it. It would be nice to see the older Martin's, Steve and Tom, race against A.J. and Mark Martin. Tom is old and married now, so guess new bride . Second place went to Charlie Davis and Devin Goode. They had a pretty good day. Some concern was raised about the tranny slipping and there was oil dripping onto the clutch which made for some fancy footwork in operating the clutch, but they got enough dirt on it to keep the foot from slipping off all the time ... They wanted to thank Adam Wik for a great motor again and Leigthton for the terrific suspension and of course Desert Race Support (DRS) for the terrific pits. Frank Omboli and Rich Fersch had a great day in the 5-1600, winning the class by_six minutes, a big margin for this group, and they had no troubles, no down time and it must be the super race prep. Randy Anderson and James Woodruff took third place in 1600 by about a minute and a half, because Brad Inch was hot on their tail. They said that James, who took the first two laps, got lost on the second lap for about 2 to 3 minutes, and then had the good fortune of having a flat tire. After turning the car over to Randy for the third and fourth laps, the exhaust started ticking louder and louder until it finally fell off and the whole thing was ; giving Randy a big headache and he was about ready to park it until he found out he was in the hunt and had a good chance of taking second place, as he was only two Dan Cannon and Mike Robertson kept their Class 725 Ford running well, had no serious troubles, and won the class, one of two of the six starters that finished four laps. DustyTirnes September 1993 is keeping him - occupied, but Steve is footloose and fancy free (almost) and ready to run. In the popular 5-1600 or 550 class there were 11 starters and 7 finishers. The first one was the team of Frank Omboli and Rich Fersch. Looks like Rich may still like this class, however he was not available for any comments. Frank just said he started in front and stayed there all day, without a single problem. Second place went to Brian Logan and Keith Westerfield. They said they started last and worked their way This is the iiystem run by most off road race winners thru the crowd, passing everyone but number 552. Brian finally stopped after three laps and turned it over to Keith to see if he could pass 552, but it just wasn't to be. They had a really great day, totally trouble free. Third place goes to Jeff and Tom Bohla, this is the first time that Jeff has tried to drive a race car since losing a finger and dam-aging some muscles and tendons in his hand. He is going through therapy but it will be a long slow process in getting the movement and strength I@" TRI-MIL BOBCAT CHROME JEEP STRAIGHT 6 "NEW SUMMER SPECIAL CHROME" 2740 COMPTON AVENUE LOS ANGELES, CALIF. 90011 (213) 234-9014 WHOLESALE ONLY DEALER INQUIRIES INVITED Page 49

Tom and Jeff Bo/ha keep their 5-1600 very tidy and despite a little trouble in the suspension department, they finished a close third in Class 5-1600. Sandy Parker had a flat and a broken tierod to slow his progress in Class 9 but he squeaked out a strong second place to keep the points battle going. Brian Sallee and Stan Hignett pushed hard in their Chenowth, had no serious delays and were third in Class 9 only three more minutes behind the winner. James Clements out foxed his rivals in the hefty Class 9 entry, 17 starters, with very consistent lap times, and the Barstow charger won Class 9 by almost four minutes, a long lead in this class. ~ back in that hand. He drove the first lap before turning it over to brother Tom. They said that there were just SQ_me things that did not feel right most of the race. It felt like there was no rebound in the suspension, so they were getting jarred pretty good most of the day. Then something happened with car number 556 who overshot his pit and Jeff tapped him in the rear somehow, but it was nothing major. The car was evidently off to the right of the course and hung a U tum rather abruptly to get back to his pit and he did so without checking to see who was close to him. They said they had another "Dusty Time" out there, kind of hard to see, but then they are used to that too. They were having second thoughts about having the number 555 again because of some problems that occurred at a previous race on this course with that number, but nothing of that nature occurred. Tom said that they broke a rear torsion bar half way thru the last lap while they were trying to pass another car afld then a push rod tube started leaking into the motor, so they were real glad to see the checkered flag. Class 600 had only two starters and one finisher, that being Scott McKinney from Bull-head City, Arizona. It took him 9 1/2 hours to do his 4 laps and in looking at his individual lap time, I'd say he had some major prob-lems on his third and fourth laps; hope it goes better next time fellas. Class 700 had one starter and no finishers. David Winner the only entrant, put in three laps, which didn't look that bad at all, but obviously something major happened after the third lap. The Class 725 trucks had six entries and only two finishers. It seems to me this class is not having a whole lot of luck, but the first place finisher was Dan Cannon and it took him 8:51:49 to do his four laps. He did not have anything major go wrong, but he says that the Minor truck passed him in the air and crashed the passenger side door and mirror, but that didn't slow him down any. His Parker Pumper hose kept coming off all day, so he was having to contend with that on and off. He says he just set a pace and let the others break and scooted in for the win. He wanted to thank his all woman chase crew, they came through again for him. By the way Dan you owe me a truck wash for the victory champagne you sprayed on my dually and I'm going tt> hold my breath until you pay up dude. Second place went to Kreg Donohoe and John Brewster, but I had hit the road by the time they arrived, sorry guys. They completed their four laps in 9:45, just under the 10 hour time limit; that must have been a real long day for them. Class 750 had one lone finisher also. Bill Waltman and Bill Markell. I must have passed them on the way out, because they finished their tour in 9:15. they had some pretty consistent lap times, so it doesn't look like they had any real big problems. Ralph Blundell and Randy Pettit got in two laps in the allotted time and Dean Galloway and Erick Boka must have hit disaster after the first lap, because that was the last we saw of them. Jim Clements took first place in Class 900, he said he had to stop every lap and call home to see if he was a Grand Dad yet; evidently his daughter is going to deliver him a blessed event any minute. He got tired of stopping and decided just to get this race over with and passed everybody so he could relax and get home. His laps were within three minutes of each other, so he must have had a cellular phone in the race. His total time on the course was 7:09:06, as usual he was all smiles and not too much conversation. His good friend Sandy Parker finished in 7: 12:50 which put him in second place. He too was all smiles even though he got second place; he always has fun racing against Jim. Sandy was not as fortunate as Jim though. He had one flat and broke a tie rod which folded the front end back a tad. That must have happened on the last lap or two because they appear to be the slowest laps. He wanted to thank his brother-in-law Bruce, for all the motors and his co-driver Tom Moessner for turning the car over to him in such good shape. He said that he nerfed Jim a couple of times just to let him know that he was back there. He had so much fun, the day just flew by. Third place went to Brian_ Sallee who came in just about three minutes after Sandy, so I must have been involved with Sandy and crew and did not get to talk to Brian. Looks like he had a pretty good race; his last three laps were within seconds of each other, so congratulations Brian and co-driver Stan Hignett. Fourth place went to High Desert residents, Jim Mobly and Dennis Petersen, who wer not real happy with fourth but did not complain too severely. Jim talked to me at the awards banquet and said the rear end is not 100% yet and he has to figure out how to gain another 20 minutes per race. They really want to beat their friends Jim Clements and Sandy Parker, so they are consulting with them to see what the differences are amongst the three cars, to see if they may not have done some-thing they should have to give them a little faster lap times. They also want to adapt to their easy going attitudes. Jim and Sandy are usually smiling and Dennis . and Jim are chewing their knuckles by race time. They did have one complaint, their chase vehicle got rocked by another chase vehicle who flew by them well over the 25 mph speed limit and broke their windshield. they will try to have everything dialed in by the next race, including some front and rear end problems that kind of bugged them all day, but didn't stop them. Their only stops were for fuel and driver changes. They wanted to be sure and thank R.E. Goodspeed, DJ Transaxles, Tom Mattingly, Bob's Tires and Reid Pro for their support. You sponsors are very important to these racers and they want to see to it that you get all the credit you deserve and they hope to bring you in a winner real soon. Class 10 had seven starters and three finishers, the first of those was Craig Dillon and Mike Harman who took first in class and third overall in the Lothringer. They had a reasonably good day, with one flat and the shift linkage got clogged with dirt and they had some minor steering problems, but no race stopping problems. They said it was very dusty with a iot of rough sections and some fast sec-tions with a few down hills thrown in for good measure. They were happy with their total time of5:48:22. Second place went to veteran off roaders Tom Koch and Rex Keeling. They were not real thrill-ed with second. They attribute their second place to a bad prep job. they had a total of three flats and then the wire came off the fuel pump and that shut down the engine real fast; so Rex got out and put it back on with the help of some duct tape, got back in and fired her up and the tranny started popping out of gear for the rest of the day, so they were not happy racers at all. They were hot, tired and mad. I saw the third place car of Steve Hendricks take the check-ered flag, but he went directly into the post impound area and I did not get to talk to him, but he completed the race in 7: 18:49 . Donny Angel and Kevin McGil-livray only got in one lap, stopped by to tell me about their interesting day of off roading. Donny said that the splines in the CV disrnt-egrated and the boot caught on fire on the second lap and that just wasted the axle. So there was no way of replacing or repairing, or moving for that matter, so they parked it and helped out at the CORE pits. This is their first mechanical failure in years. Donny thinks it was 1989 when they had to quit a race because of irrepairable damages. They had great hopes of catching the Minor truck and Donny was going for it until disaster struck. These boys are always in contention for the overall win as well as the class win, so I'm sure we haven't seen the last of them. Due to trying to be in two places at the same time, I was not able to get to the finish line in time to talk to the Stone Stock class winners, so if I missed you, which I probably did, please drop me a note, c/o the Dusty Times, or send it directly to me at P.O. Box 2053, Apple Valley, CA 92308. In Class 15, Glenn Cohen John Bourassa and Dennis Bourassa run a Toyota in Ciass 15, and they l,roke the same shock mount twice on lap 1, but got the other lap done for second place. Bob and John Beyer had major down time with their Ford, but did get their two laps finished for a well earned third place in Class 15, the last one in. Larry Gross and Roger Malcelm race their Toyota in Class 1525, and they came close at this race, but settled for second in class at the flag. Page 50 September 1993 Du1tynmc1

Glen Cohen and Tim Berviss race a Jeep Comanche in Class 15, and they covered the two required laps almost three hours faster than the other four in the class for a resounding victory. and Tim Berviss took first place in 5:17:33. They were in the impound area and I did not get to speak with them about their day, but it must have been real good. Second place went to Joe Boursassa and Dennis Bourassa who said they had a lousy first lap because they broke the same shock mount twice and they wanted to thank Fab Tech for putting them back together so they could finish. They had about 1 1/2 hours down time on the first lap ·and lost some time on the second lap with muffler problems and one flat, so they were pleased that they got second. Third place went to Bob Bey-er who faxed me the info about his day. At about MM7 he had some major down time with a broken ball joint and spindle. When the spindle severed, it caused a broken steering link, a bent shock rod and a broken caliper. So Bob took off on foot to find help and get to the nearest pit. He hooked up with his chase crew who arrived with the parts and Bob started the needed repairs. They got everything fixed but the shock and the brakes and took off for the finish line along with co-driver John Beyer. They wanted to be sure to thank Dick Cepek, Sta-Lube, James Gag Rac-ing Products and BBM Marketing promotions. Bill Quitmeyer led the pack in the 152 class. He and his faithful crew, wife-Teri, Fred Espinoza and Kathy Simmons were too involved in the impound area, so I was unable to get their attention. But they beat the second place finish-er, Larry Gross by a good 9 1/2 minutes. Third were David and Robin Parker who had a first lap flat, then broke a shock bolt, finished both required laps in good time. In Class 157, John Barajas got first place in 5:01:46 total time, which says they had a fairly good day. Second place went to David Edelstein and Dennis Lightle who ran out of gas about mm 40. They had put a new 4 barrel carburetor on the truck and misjudged the gas mileage, so they were down for four hours Bill Quitmeyer and Fred Espinoza have a real lock on Class 152 in their Toyota, and they won again at Lucerne, but by less than ten minutes here.

Ron Stobaugh and Colin Butcher come from northern California to race in Class 1 in the fancy Ford, and they finished at Lucerne a long second but finished. 't -Rick Henry and A.J. Martin were the only starter in Class 5, but they plowed through all four laps, replacing a stub axle and CV boot to earn the win. The only entry and an automatic winner in Class 7 was David Winner in a Toyota, with Randy Clary co-driving they got in three laps. Dennis Petersen and James Mobley say they still have work to do on the 9 car, but they zipped into fourth place in good time in this big class. Tim Chamberlin and John Whelchel were the only Class 11 entry, so they motored around for a six hour lap and took home the points and the trophy. Page 51 Steve Holladay and Billy Robertson were moving right along in Class 2, but were second, losing the engine on the third of four laps required. Mitch Griffin and Mark Steele had a good run in Class 5-1600, stayed close to the leaders all the way, and they finished in a tight fourth place. Kreg Donahoe and John Brewster took second in Class 725, must have had some trouble, but they got up ·and running to finish all four required laps. Danny Richardson and Randy Westbrook have a new looking Class 9 Mirage and they finished fifth in class, only 12 minutes out of fourth place time. David and Robin Parker cover the rough going in their Toyota, but they finished their two laps for third place in the Class 152 action. September 1993 Once again Mike Duncan was all alone in his Jeep with Wrangler bodywork so he motored through two laps and took home the first in Class 3 honors. Two Jeep Cherokees started in Class 6 but this one of Scott and Earl McKinney was the lone 4 lap survivor, taking the victory by a full lap. Bill Waltman and Bill Markel were the only finisher of three starters in Class 750 and their Toyota took 9:15 to do the four laps required in class. Stephen Hendricks and Brian McDonnell do a little nose stand in the Class 10 Raceco, but it didn't slow them down en route to third place in Class 10. David Edelstein and Dennis Lightle had an incredible exper-ience running out of gas in the Ford Bronco in just 40 miles, but they finished second in Class 157. DustyTimcs

Plaster City West on May 14-16, the BLM Open Recreation Area slowly but surely saw race teams drifting in. By early Saturday morning pit row was filled to the brim. It was privateer vs. factory and stock vs. exotic. At 7:00 a.m. 32 teams set out boldly to go where many had never gone before, 24 hours of continuous racing. Remarkably, there were 22 teams still running 24 hours later and 17 world records were set. This is a unique off road event because you don't go anywhere except around and around a ten mile loop. However, this is not just another drive in the park. It is a full blown endurance ,·ace, this year for ATVs, Bikes and DesertLites and supported by Budweiser, Bud Light and Bud Dry. You must be prepared to -travel over 1000 miles. This means you must average nearly 42 mph all day and all night through fuel stops, tire changes, filter changes, and if something drastic happens a major repair job. Only one race vehicle is allowed, on . which you can replace everything except the engine and frame. Six persons are the maximum per team. All things being equal, there were five motorcycle teams that appeared to have a chance for the overall victory.

They had just finished replacing the engine and set their nasty box of gremlins next to Wehe's DesertLite. It was a tasty meal and the Good was soon parked, with mysterious prob-lems and failure. Meanwhile two tired puppies set out to drive for 24 hours. Finally luck was on their side. After a week of almost sleepless nights fixing and fixing everything went right. John Schultz and Mark Thiel drove 848.7 miles, farther than any other DesertLite had ever driven before, and became overall Desert Lite W arid Champions and Vet Class 77 W arid Champ-ions. They are the first ever two person team to finish, truly Ironmen!

Of course when Carroll "Chee-tos" Buckley drove we had to make a trail of Cheetos so he could find his way to pi trow. This car is so old and ugly it had to finish.

In the wee hours the 200 ATV team of Tom Sullivan, Rob "Stix" Svatora, Colby Groom, Scott Callen and Guy "Wheel" Barrow had not only broken their previous world record, but were in the overall ATV lead. While they were celebrating the Blaster broke at the far end of the track. Soon a rescue ATV was on its way to tow the Blaster in for repairs. However, unbeknown to the pit crew the tow ATV died before it reached the little ATV that could. This long delay dropped them out of the lead but not from the race. Meanwhile all was not well at the Row Camp either. Parts were scattered across the pits as they feverishly worked to replace the top end. Meanwhile, the Honda EX300s kept going around. Except for a few flat tires they were working perfectly. The two man crew of John Shultz and Mark Thiel won the Desertlite Division overall, and Class 77, and they are world champions at 848. 7 miles. They must have been ready for a good night's sleep.

It Was All In The Family At The Susquehannock Trail Pro Rally Paul Choiniere and Jeff Becker won the rally overall in the Audi S-2 by mere inches over the Quattro driven alternately by Paul's step dad John Buffum and car owner Bruno Kreibich. Round 3 of the Subaru SCCA Pro Rally Championship, The Susquehannock Trail is a long standing and famous event, often voted the best rally of the year, going back to 1977. John Buffum has won it six times, Rod Millen four times, but neither driver is active in the series in the '90s. However Buffum was signed on to co-drive in Bruno Kreibich's Audi Quattro, thus starting a controversy that lasted all through the rally, More on that later. '-' The town of Wellsboro, PA really throws out the welcome mat for the rally people, which is not common. The rally this year was 324 miles long with 139 stage miles broken into 12 stages. It began at 10:30 a.m. an.:! ran the daylight stages on Saturday, had a break on the Green of almost three hours, then ran the majority of the stages in the darkness. The rally roads used were within the Pennsylvania State Forest, near Wellsboro. The entry was up from last year, 71 total cars, with a few of those running only the divisional rally. While it had been warm and sunny on Thursday and Friday, rally day on Saturday was cold with a steady rain falling on the 71 starters. But many rally drivers rdish bad weather conditions, figuring it more of a challenge perhaps. There was an interesting report on top times from the end of stage one, which ends in the middle of the creek at Stony Fork. Some-where between the start of the rn II yon the Wellsboro Green and tht' start of stagt' 1. driver Bruno Kreibich and co-driver John Buf--fum swapped position.s, and Buf-fum drove the stage in the Audi Quattro. John had subbed for his stepson Paul Choiniere earlier this year and won that event outright. This round he won stage 1 over Paul by a few seconds, and Paul's Audi S-2 Quattro was just 1 / 100 of a minute faster than the Subaru Legacy of Chad DiMarco and Erick Hauge, who had Dick Corley and Martin Headland just to the rear in a Mitsubishi Eclipse. The Canadian team of Tom McGeer and Trish Sparrow were leading Production GT in a Subaru Legacy. Attrition started early, the Jeff Zwart/Tony Sircombe Porsche Carrera 4, which currently leads the championship points after two events, was out of the rally. Zwart overcooked the car on a downhill stretch on stage 1, going off the road and banging all four corners of his newly painted Valvoline racer. Although most of the damage seemed repairable, the car had a broken half shaft and they did not have a suitable replacement. Also retired early was the Production GT entry of Antonio Menendez and Juan Goya from Mexico City in their Vermont Sports Car prepared Mitsubishi Eclipse. Menendez also ran off the course on stage 1 and bent the frame. After four stages and the return to Wellsboro for the break, Paul Choiniere/Jeff Becker had a slim lead in the Audi S-2, and it was a , tight pack with the top five all in the same minute. Second overall, first Group A was Chad Di-Marco/Erick Hauge, Subaru Legacy, followed by Open Class runners Carl Merrill/Jon Wick-ens, Ford Escort Cosworth, Richard Corley/Martin Head-land, Mitsubishi Eclipse, Bruno Kreibich/John Buffum, Audi Quattro. Steve Gingras/Bill Westrick led Production GT in a Photos: Lome Trezise ~ Mazda 323 GTX and were sixth overall. Peter Cunningham/Joe Andreini led Production in the Acura lntegra, while Chad Dykes/Pat Han1>on led the truck class by a minute over the Gooches. The top four after the four stages all say their cars are running well. For Corley, a rising star in Pro Rally after his first win and the first overall win ever by Mitsubishi at last year's POR, there was the surprise announce-ment that he would be leaving the series for the year after this event. He has sold the car to a Mexican team who will rally it South of the Border, and Corley and his wife will "go deep sea fishing for the rest of the year.'' For the second rally in a row Frank Cunningham /Charles Bradley in their Mitsubishi are out of the rally early, here with electrical problems. Greg Healy/ John Macleod crashed their Dodge Ram 50 pickup and are out of action after stage 4. Tim Maskus/Doug Trott, had engine failure, but got it fixed in time for the stage 5 restart so they will run the Divisional rally. After warning several drivers (as many as seven between Friday and Saturday), the Wellsboro Police handed out a speeding citation to the Bob Elliott/Mark Williams VW GTI on the transit stage between the Wellsboro service and stage 5 . It is up to the organizer to assess the road point penalties. A top five runner retired before stage 6. The Carl Merrill/Jon Wickens Ford Escort Cosworth came to the start of stage 6 and they were unable to start the engine. The electrical system died completely, and for the second time in two rallies Merrill was forced to drop out. After nine stages Choiniere/ Becker were leading by nearly a minute over Kreibich/ Buffum in the battle of the Audis. DiMar-co /Hauge were third in the Subaru followed by Corley/ Headland in the Eclipse. The final three stages were coming up fast. Meanwhile a showdown seemed to be brewing between DiMarco and the Kreibich /Buffum team over the legality of a co-driver and driver swapping seats during a rally. DiMarco says that the driver swapping should mean that neither Bruno or Buffum should score any points, and he has indicated he is ready to protest any results to the contrary. It is not clear whether Rusty Camp-bell, as SCCA National Pro Rally Chad Di Marco and Erick Hauge ran up front most of the time in the Group A Subaru Legacy, but they ended up third overall, but the Group A winner. Series Manager, or the preap-pointed protest committee, will end up ruling on the issue. The Todd Bawden/ Cal Coats-worth Mitsubishi, a hit at the recent Rim of the World rally, is out of this event after a rollover on stage 6. With Greg Healy out of the truck class race, it looks like someone will finally be able to collect the $2500 Mitsubishi contingency money. A GMC won the first two events, but here the Mitsubishi of Chad Dykes/Pat Hanson has the upper hand after seven stages, as Gary and Judi Gooch started stage 5 a minute behind and then lost five more minutes on stage 6 changing a flat ti re. The Doug Shepherd /Pete Gladysz Eagle had been up to fifth place, then an off road excursion .damaged the front end on stage 8 and they had a flat on the next transit and checked into stage 9 a minute late, all putting them fairly far back at this late stage of the event. Well after midnight the 17th edition of the Susquehannock Trail Pro Rally was officially over, but results were not official. On time Paul Choinere and Jeff Becker won Overall and Open Class in the Audi S-2 at 140.19 minutes. Hot on their bumper, second overall and second in Open Class were Bruno Kreibich and Paul's step-dad John Buffum at 140.72 minutes. Buffum drove stages 1, 6, 7, 9, 11 and 12 in the Audi Quattro. Third overall was Chad DiMarco/ Erick Hauge, first Group A at 141. 79 in the Subaru Legacy followed by Shepherd/ Gladysz at 145.75. The problem with the Kreib-ic h I Buffum situation persists. According to Buffum it is perfectly acceptable for the driver and co-driver to switch at will. While it might mean that neither earns points, the entrant still finishes second and the entrant behind it (DiMarco) finishes third earning third place driver and entrant points. Chad DiMar-co feels that, when Buffum took the wheel of Bruno's car on stage 1 he violated the rule which states that driver and co-driver cannot switch places in order to gain a time advantage. Furthermore he feels the car's results should not be counted at all, giving him a second overall finish. The organizer's committee dealt with the question first then it went to series manager Rusty Campbell, and after that it goes to protest. Apparently nothing came of it except that neither Bruno nor John got any points, nor did they expect to. Late night mishaps included Tony and Liz Shumaker hitting a tree and went over an embank-ment in the Mitsubishi Eclipse, ending up in a gully in the middle of stage 10. A cinch for fourth overall in their Mitsubishi Eclipse, Dick Corley/Martin Headland hit a tree stump at high speed, severely damaging the suspension on stage 10, and Corley was forced to drop out of the rally. Californians Chad Dykes and Pat Hanson were leading the truck class when they went off the road. The Peter Cunningham/Joe Andreini Acura lntegra GS-R is now the only 1993 season entry to win its class in all three rallys, in the Production Class. This round they wete ninth overall. Tom McGeer and Trish Sparrow got the Subaru Legacy home the Production GT Class winner by less than a minute over Vicente Frontinan/Frank Arruda, Toyota at 149.39. Bob Elliott and Mark Williams VW GTI, were second in Production class. Gary and Judi Gooch picked up the win in rally truck class and the Mitsubishi money as well, with nobody close to them in class. This year's event in t h e Pennsylvania State Forest featur-ed a variety of smooth and twisty roads from hard packed to loose gravel, rain slick for a time, but it still did in a lot of cars. Only 40 of the original 71 finished the rally. The next stop on the Subaru Pro Rally Championship circuit will be the end of July, the Prescott Forest Rally, in Prescott, Arizona. This is a car you would like to have, a Porsche 4 WO Carrera, but sad to say Jeff Zwart overcooked a downhill section and went off the road on stage_ 1. Todd Bawden and Cal Coatsworth were going well in GT class in the Mitsubishi, but unfortunately they rolled the car on stage 6 and were out of the rally. Henry Joy and Jimmy Brandt run the Mitsubishi Eclipse in Open class, and this round they were seventh in class and a fine finish at eleventh overall. ?age 58 September 1993 Dustyn..._s

Clarification 4WD: The word ''designed'' will change to ,"built", to allow a 2WD to be modified to 4 WO and run as 4WD; it does not require the manufacturer to have originally made the vehicle that way. Celebrates July 4 Photos: Jeanne Brown At Shelbyville, Illinois The races were pretty decent ~ and the weather was hot as heck at the Okaw Valley Campgrounds. W e had a good day Saturday July 3. Class 12, the Trophy Class, was exciting. John Dow in 1259 dominated the field; was it just luck or was it skill? Tom Vogt was second in car 1194. Following a humble third was the Ice House Bandit Larry Tipsword. Last with mechanical trouble was Steph Sabo. This man wants to race. After his motor went south, he searched the area and bought a fiberglass VW car from one of the campers just so he could use the motor to run the Sunday Enduro. He practiced Rusty Wallace style rollovers Sunday to show off for the crowd. Class 1600 went to Wes Knierim in car 615. Second place was held by (Pistol) Pete Warren in car 611. Carl Newforth in car 667 cruised in third. Bruce Bi~kers in car 693 had a suspension accident which held him in fourth.

Call me at (909) 736-1442 with your ideas. (Our suggestion would be to use BLM land, easier to get a permit, some desert roads in any of the three states and do a rally that isn't in a national or state forest. We 'think the fire danger is too great at times in the forests. ed.) The one hour enduro Sunday found Class 12 survivors eager. We had an old fart join us again from his shop in Indiana; Tim Hunter in car 1239 took the lead and captured first place. John Dow came in second and drove hard ( for a dummy). Larry the Lounge Li:ard (Tippy) took a third place finish in car 1244, but .----------------------------WRIGHT It was one of those rare moments in racing when a driver thinks about s~mething beside the race. And it was really quite touching, Jim Wiggins, of Dixon, IL, had Iust hopped out of his 1600 racer, found his girl friend, Lisa Vandermissen of Escanaba, Ml, who has ridden with both her dad Dave and her brother Dave Jr. for many years and was riding this day as well in the races. Jim <:Jid it right, 1. dropping on one knee and asking Lisa to marry him, 2. digging m his pocket and producing the traditional engagement ring while (clued in advance) the ESPN announcer and cameraman recorded it all and 3._ Lisa recovered enough from emotion to pose for a proper engage'ment picture at the Crandon race track finish line. DustyTimes he did get muddy? Fourth place was taken by Richard Albin in car 1187 because of his early broken rear shock stud. And, as mention-ed early, Lucky Steph Sabo did his famous triple flip on turn 3 of the stock car portion of the track and ate mud, lost a battery and he was glad I forgot his passenger side shoulder harness, so his wife didn't ride. Wes Knierim took first in Class 1600 and Kent Galloway held second place in car 760. In Class 7E the Enduro went to Don Ponder of Casper Racing, first across the finish line in truck 719 and he was followed closely by Al Mollet in his truck #7 l l .

SUBARUNOT RENEWING ITS SCCARALLY SPONSORSHIP Subaru and their hard working press and public relations man Andy Schupack had put some new life into the Pro rally circuit and Andy certainly will be missed by those of us who persist in covering the sport. It has been so nice to have entry lists, results, things like that which most organ-izers do not do on their own and Subaru of America, Inc., the SCCA headquarters does not title sponsor for the Sports Car send out any press releases or Club of America's Pro Rally results to the press on the Pro series for the past three years, has Rally circuit. Andy and Alex -you opted not to renew its sponsor-· will be missed! ship contract for the 1994 season. ------------The current contract expires on December 31, 1993. Alex Fedorak, Subaru's motor-sports manager, pointed out that while Subaru and SCCA have worked together to help the sport of rallying grow nationwide, it is time for a new corporate entity to grab the reins and take Pro rally to even greater heights. "We hope that other manufacturers, like Toyota, Nissan, Honda and Mazda, will see the opportunity to participate with us in a motor-s ports activity that really highlights the overall perform-ance of their vehicles and their components. If the SCCA is successful in obtaining an aftermarket or non-automotive sponsor for the series, we think these companies might join current rally participants such as Subaru and Mitsubishi on the field of battle, 11 said Fedorak. Subaru plans to continue its relationship with Chad DiMar-co's Sube Sports, Team Subaru on all levels, including sponsor-ship of DiMarco's Subaru Legacy Group A rally racer. Subaru notified the SCCA earlier this month (July), well in advance of its September con-tractual commitment, in order to give the SCCA a head start in finding a new title sponsor. "We would like to thank all the Pro Rally organizers and participants for helping us make Pro Rally a more prestigious sport in the U.S.A. over the last three years. We are confident that, under the right leadership, the growth will continue, 11 said Fedorak. Located in Cherry Hill, New Jersey (near Philadelphia, PA), Subaru of America, Inc. is the U.S. sales and marketing comp-any for Subaru products manu-factured by Fuji Heavy Industries, Ltd., in Japan and Subaru-Isuzu Automotive, Inc. in Lafayette, Indiana. With a full line of front wheel drive and all wheel drive models, Subaru cars are sold through a nationwide network of over 700 franchised dealers.

Ir's No SEC r r11AT .,-HIE COIMP/ETlffON HA. S OUR GIIIS. When you've dominated truck racing as long as we have, you have to expect a few hard feelings. But that's OK. We'd rather deal with that than give up any of our nine MTEG Stadium Truck Champ-ionships. Or our seven Baja 500 wins. Our five Mint/Nissan 400s. Etc. © 1992 Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. Besides, we suspect it's really more jealousy than hate. And who can blame them for being jealous? Especially since the engine we use is actually a race-modified version of the 3.0-liter V6 available in our production trucks. So we'll just keep on winning and if the other guys don't like it, that's fine. We can take it. After all, no guts ... no glory. "I love what you do for me!' ~TOYOTA
