Item Of The Month ••• CONGRATULATIONS TO BEKKI FREEMAN WHO WON THE SNORE BOTTOM DOLLAR RACE OVERALL! The lovely blonde lady went through a couple of riders in the two seat Miraco race car that is painted pink and white and she wore nail polish that matched the pink on the car exactly. It brought her luck, the car ran flawlessly, she stopped only for gas and finished in about seven hours, 45 minutes, doing 12-laps con-siderably faster than the others in the approximately 40 car field. How about that for an unsponsored team.

CA on New Year's Eve. Tim won the FRT Dunaway Dash race overall in the Class 10 Jimco and he has won here overall at least four times during the 1993 season. The former stock car racer certainly adapted to the rugged desert racing quickly as this was his first full year in the sport. Our heartiest congratulations to Tim Allen. January was a busy month in desert racing as the La Rana New Years 200 ran out of Barstow'. Before the race Bob Miller announced to our reporter that he was sure he could win overall if he didn't have any trouble with his Class 10 that he calls a BMP /RCO. Bob whipped around the four 50 mile laps in 4:46:31 to win overall by over 11 minutes in an outstanding run to the checkered flag on the rugged Barstow trails. Our heartiest congratulations to Bob Miller also and both drivers went the distance alone. The single seater is coming back!

TIIANKS: TOT~ FODPUCKER RACING TEAM FOR A OREAT RACING SERIESI March 1994 Trail Notes ••• EARTHQUAKE-That has been the big news in these parts since January 17. Quite a number of people in the northwest end of the San Fernando Valley, the Simi Valley and Thousand Oaks and points north were hit by the early morning wakeup call that damaged many structures that lived through the Sylmar quake in 1971. Dusty Times got a double whammy out of this one as the offices we rent from Sway-A-Way were just a few miles from the epicenter of the Northridge quake, and our home in Granada Hills, totally repaired since 1971, this round lost more. However, the structure is sound, but all the dishes, china, crystal, trophies, are trash, walls split open a little bit, but we both and the two cats came out without a scratch so we can't complain too loudly. In the office the drop ceiling tiles crumbled as they fell, most of the bookcases fell over and we are still digging stuff out from under the debris that litters every floor. Happily there was no water damage, but no water for days or phones either. But we are on schedule with this issue, and hope the post office is recovered a bit by now as well. If you sent us a news item last month, it may be hiding in the debris and we apologize for not using it. But one can only clean house so much time a day, and the rest you must spend getting the issue together. We don't know of any injuries in the local off road community, and if there are we send our sympathy to the victims. But we are in a different month now and February should be the harbinger of good things to come to each and every one of us. WANTED TO BUY - a victim of the October fire storms that raged through southern California, long time racer and restaurant man Gale Pike lost his home in Laguna Beach and everything in it, really everything, when the fire swept down his block. Again nobody was injured but some real treasures were lost, including Pike's favorite trophies the Mexican Indians with the Spears from Baja races in the 1970s and other unique trophies. WANTED TO BUY - Yes if you have one of the following stuffed away in the comer of your garage unloved, Pike wants to buy it from you. Check your stuff against the following list. 1st place 1975 Baja 1000 "Montezuma"; 1st Place 1976 Baja 500 "Montezuma''.; 1st, 2nd or 3rd Place 1977 Baja 1000 Eagle; 1st Place 1978 Parker 400; 1st Place 1982 Nevada 500 "Inaugurational". Please contact Gale Pike at (714) 494-9707. SODA CHAMPIONS -The 1993 champions of the World Series of Off Road Racing were crowned at the gala, black tie awards banquet at the Olympia Resort in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin on January 22. An energetic crowd of more than 400 drivers, sponsors, SODA officials, race promoters and guests attended the year end festivities. The championship honors and awards were presented by SODA (Short Course Off.Road Drivers Association) President Terry Wolfe to drivers who competed in 17 classes in SODA's ten race series. · Todd Attig captured championships in Classes 1/2, 1-2-1600 and 9/ 10; Jim Wiggins in 2-1600; Gerald Foster in 3; Geoff Dorr in 4; Mike Brue in 5-1600; FayStatezny in6; Scott Taylor in 7S and8; Dan Baudoux in l lD and llS; Dan Vanden Heuvel in 13; Karen Christensen in Women's 11, Amy Haese in Women's Limited Buggy' Paula St. Peter in Women's Unlimited Buggy and Valerie James in Women's Heavy Metal class. The 1993 Pro Series Points Championship honors went to Scott Taylor in Classes 7 S and 8, Jack Flannery in Class 4 and Jeff St. Peter in Class 9110. This is the series in SODA of six races that are shown on ESPN. Mr. Wolfe also recognized the 1993 SODA Series sponsors. "We are very fortunate to be associated with such fine companies as Chevrolet, BFGoodrich and Optima Batteries" said Wolfe, "and we thank you for your support and dedication to the SODA Series". The evening culminated in the presentation of four special awards to people who, over the course of the racing season, demonstrated the highest level of professionalism, dedication and sportsmanship among their peers and the SODA organization. Scott Taylor was the recipient of the SODA Driver of the Year Award; Ed Schultz received the Sports Person of the Year Award; Valerie James won the Joe Plummer Rookie of the Year Award and, the Mel Freimuth 1993 Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Terry Wolfe. In his speech, Glenn Maddox, Motorsports Marketing Manager of Chevrolet, emphasized the importance of the SODA series to Chevrolet and pledged continued support. Maddox also expressed pride in Chevrolet drivers and teams. "One of the traits of all great Chevrolet drivers and teams is that no matter what happens on the race track, we all embrace when it's over.We shake hands, we are friends, we understand one another - be it Ford, Dodge - it doesn't matter. We are all racers at heart and we understand that. And that's extremely important -that sense of camaraderie, that sense of leadership. We are setting an example for all the young people coming up" concluded Mr. Maddox. The 1994 SODA racing season kicks off with the Chevrolet Memorial Day 100 race on May 28 and 29 in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. ATTENTION DUSTY TIMES CONTINGENCY RECIPIENTS-We were a little lax toward the end of 1993 in getting caught up and paying those racers who earned our small contingency prizes in the fall and early winter races. Well the one flower arrangement, live flowers, dumped over during the big earthquake on, you guessed it, the stack of our contingency notices we were going to pay in January and start anew in 1994. Of course, that wasn't all that caught the small amount of water but it did wipe out any legibility of to whom we owed money for what race. Now, if we owe you for a "last official finisher" prize please drop us a note so we can clear up these debts, small to be sure, but we would like to pay those deserving of the cash prize. In the future we plan to pay up as soon as we get the notice from the race organizer. Help us out so we won't feel guilty when you go by us while we are set up in contingency row. PARKER 400 TROPHY TRUCKS: It was a test of the grand experiment with the Trophy trucks and those that attended said it went off just fine, but there wasn't much action, and nobody passed anybody even in the mandatory pit stop for fuel and tires. Paul and Dave Simon took the big Ford to the victory and Rob MacCachren was about seven minutes back. in second driving his upgraded championship winning Class 8 Ford. Another seven minutes back Steve Kelley was third in a Jeep, followed in seven minutes by John Swift in the former Class 6 Ford Explorer. They seemed to finish in seven minute intervals as Keith Jackson was another seven minutes down in fifth, filling out the ranks from sixth to 11th were Larry Ragland, Walker Evans, Jim Smith, Scott Douglas, Ivan Stewart and Robby Gordon. The other two, Bob Richey and Danny Lemer did not complete a lap. Watch for the TV show! , (more TTail Notes on page 6) Dusty Times

SOLD RACE READY WITH ''TONS" OF SPARES. FOR DETAILS CALL (909) 381-4088 $68,900 Page 6 March 1994 •ore Trail Notes ••• PARKER 400 First Report: There was a good turnout of racers for the Parker 400, about the same as last year, but the spectators were gone. The town was literally empty, as over the years racers have learned it is cheaper to get a group together and rent a mobile home up river than it is to try for a motel, some up over $70 a night for a room not much more than one ina Big 6. But the walking spectators were missing on Friday as the cars pushed through the contingency line. Usually these streets are quite congested, but in 1994 you could walk freely through the line, and race morning after the statt you could easily drive up Shea Road to the main pits, a hitherto impossibility. While the stands were doing a good business up and down the street, it was mostly race peoi,-,le, pit folks and family that were doing the buying. Proof that the town was empty was that you could walk into one of two downtown restaurants with a party of eight or nine and sit right down at 6 p.m. the night before the race. Guess more and more people are coming to places that tend to raise their prices to the roof on race weekend self contained. Then too the massive BLM presence last year and the proliferation of $100 tickets that they handed out, might have made more people think twice about exposing them~lves to that risk. The entry was about the same as in 1993 but the results were not. Ed and Tim Herbst won overall in the Chenowth/ Porsche 1 7 minutes ahead of brother Troy in the single seat Chepowth/ Porsche. 1-2 in Class 1 for the brothers Herbst, followed in by Bob Gordon in a solo drive in the Chenowth, and Pat Dean in another Chenowth Porsche in fourth. Bob Nolin and Todd Teuscher won Class 1-2-1600 over Kevin Davis and Adam Wik, and Tom and Frank Rustich were third. The truck classes was truly down on entry with the new rules, and Dick Sasser and Genaro Curiel won Class 3, a two rig class. There were no Class 4 vehicles at all. Neal and Michael Grabowski won the 7 Bug Class 5 by a goodly margin over Michael James/John Cooley and Conrad Diaz/ Luis Barraga and George Seeley. Scott and Earl McKinney won in their Jeep over the other Class 6 entry. And having it their way Charlie Watters. and Brian Goodrich won Class 5-1600, coming off their Baja 1000 win. Lee Patten and Greg Burgin were second a minute ahead of Carlos and Gerardo lribe. G;iry Mecham had the only Class 7 there and did not complete a lap. Class 7S held 10 trucks and Jason Cobb and Fred Blumengagen won top spot in a Ford. Joel Stankavich/Sam Goldsmith were second, Darren and Doug York third. Brian Stewart won ,Class 8 in a new Dodge, followed in by Jerry McDonald, Chevy, and Dale White, Chevy. Rick Poole and Michael Faulkner took Class 9 honors, followed by A.J. and Herman DeNunzio and Darnen and Casey Jefferies. Doug Fortin parked his fancy truck, and went solo in a Class 10 Chenowth and won the class. Also solo Tim McDonnell was second, followed by defending points champion Tom Schilling with John Marking co-driving. Eric Solorzano won Class 11 over Victor Barajas and Dave Hendrickson. It looks like Larry Carpenter won the Stock Mini truck class and Gordon DiCarlo won the full size stock class, but the results are a little mixed up. And, lest we forget Danny Hamel won Class 22 on a Kawasaki well ahead of Dan Ashcraft on a Honda. We'll have a full report complete with pictures next month on all the details of the Parker 400. WEATHERMAN REPORT - Racers, have you ever been helped by the Weatherman PCI Radio Relay voice when you have had trouble on the race course? We sure have been in the past when we were racing. Now we all have a chance to give back a little of that help to the race team, as Weatherman Jr. Scott Steinberger has a new Ford Ranger and is racing in Class 7S with Mark Martin, son of Steve Martin of the famed Martin Brothers Race team. They have product sponsors starting with BFGoodrich tires, Rancho Suspension, Ultra Wheels, Long Beach Spring, The Converter Shop, Transmission by Mogi, Baker Performance Products and batteries, Neo Synthetic oil lubricants, Parker Pumper filtered air systems, Bill Stroppe Motorsports for our engine and their vast knowledge of racing Fords, and PlAA is lighting the way. Making us look like winners will be Sign Tech and Dave Wachter will do the paint. But the team needs some people help for prep, pit and chase work. They are looking for clean cut, non-smoking, personable folks with a winning attitude. The pay stinks because there isn't any. Sometimes there is a hotel, most times it is just the floor space in the pit truck or motor home to toss a sleeping bag. The food is as good as you can afford and the hours are as long as you can stay awake. There are some perks though! Co-driving, T-shirts, great fun in the desert parties, discounts on helmets, driving suits and radios and being part of a first class winning effort. Come join us and enjoy the exciting world of off road racing in the desert. Interested? Call Scott Steinberger at ( 310) 4 2 7 -81 77. AN INTERESTING CONCEPT came in the mail from Elizabeth Wiley. She has founded a new club for women with a couple of friends, because they were tired of staying home when the "boys" didn't want us around.We found our own niches in four wheeling and have developed a logo, and have written to COR VA and Cal Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs to see what we do now that we are growing in numbers and other women have shown an interest. We decided to use our activities to raise money for charities. If we go to an event we go together since we feel it is not safe for us to be out in the wilderness alone. We do agree with the "boys" on that issue. Some of us are Hunter Safety certified, and we do take shotguns when we go way out in small groups. We decided safety was a big issue as well, and we stress having safety checks on vehicles at real four wheel places rather than the dealerships who expect you to stay on the highway and a few dirt roads. We are beginning work on a project that would raise money as well as educate people about four wheeling and wilderness safety. We hope to have the first one in San Gabriel and work with the Forestry Service, Quail Unlimited, Wild Turkey Foundation and Big Horn Sheep Conservancy as well as one or two dealers in Four Wheel vehicles and supplies to do this. We will be splitting the proceeds between the participating non-profit groups. Sounds like the ladies have a good thing going and you can contactthemat4W4W, P.O . Box 7211, La Verne, CA 91750-9998. ASWEPULL THE CURTAIN DOWN ON 1993, it was quite a year, full of changes and several date conflicts. Well the date conflict between the Anaheim Stadium Race, now on February 12, and Parker was resolved by the great Northridge earthquake that toppled the Big A that took out rows of seats as it fell from the top of the stadium. But 1993 was a safe year and 1994 is starting that way. We take this opportunity to thank our advertisers for their faithful support of Dusty Times through thick and thin, for without them there would be no publication. We also thank the many racers who offered assistance to us at Parker to help repair quake damage both at home and in the office, and we are so grateful for that support too. Off road racing is more than a race community, it is family for many of us who have spent years with the sport. Here is a toast to 1994, may it be without conflict and the races all be safe and sane. Cheers. Dusty Times

Woods continued to lead, and at the end oflap two he had nearly two minutes on McMillin who'd come up to second, with the fast lap for the class at 34:46. Then it was the Sanden/ McCall um car, on the same time as Ross Whitmoyer, in a Mazda powered Chaparral, and behind them. Mike Hart in his Hi Jumper, who was trying to drive conservatively, aiming for a finish, since he had the season points lead in the class. The day was surprisingly calm, and the heavy, hanging dust had some of these drivers frustrated as they tried to find their way around. · Wood disappeared on the third lap, and the McMillin car, with Mark now at the wheel, went into the lead. He had six minutes on Whitmoyer, who had never raced here before, and was feeling more familiar with the course each lap. In third it was Sanden and McCallum, with Hart in fourth and Vance Allen, who'd lost nearly 20 minutes on his second lap, in fifth place. Steve Sourapas was racing his Chenowth here also, but had got off to a bad start with a loose brake line, and things went from bad to worse, with stopped up fuel filters, and then an exhaust pipe that broke at the head, so he'd parked it. On the fourth lap McMillin whacked the side of the trestle as he ducked through it, and Bill Hernquist led Class 10 for four laps, almost five as he lost the front suspension in sight of the finish line, but the crew got him going for a second in class, third overall finish, just four minutes back. Scott Prell and Ken Stroud kept the Raceco in contention all the way, and had scant mechanical problems on their way to third in Class 10 in the Raceco. flattened a rear tire.

Vance Allen bucks the odds running his Baja Bug in Unlimited Class, and he moved into third in class late in the race and stayed in third at the flag.

Phil Green, Todd Acosta and Mike Cohen combined in the 1-1600 Chenowth and despite Green hurting his back on his stint, they finished third in class. The Bill Pates, Jr. and Sr., had a good race in the Class 2-1600 Raceco, ran second all day, changed drivers and held second to the checkered flag. Ernie Silva and Scott Plunkett in the car they call Obsolete were third all the way, even with a driver change stop, in the 2-1600 tight competition. when he hurt his back. He later said, "I thought I was dyin'." Wolcott was less than two minutes behind him. Hernquist continued to lead for about 29 miles of the last lap, and then, within sight of the finish line he ground to a halt as his right front corner fell apart, apparently the result of a collision he'd had earlier in the day. While he and some crew members worked frantically to take the dragging wheel off the car, Allen went past, and took the checkered flag, and the overall win, as well as the ready to try again after their season points championship. rollover and fire in the previous Hernquist limped to the finish in race. But neither vehicle had a time for a second place, with good first lap, and, while Stiles Stroud and Prell in third, and was in front, he'd broken an axle, Wolcott in fourth place. and was manhandling the truck There wasn't much in the way around the course with a piece of of a big truck class at this event, wood holding things together. and it didn't last long, either. The officials told the team that Brady Stiles had Tony Alvarado's completing the one lap had Ford going at a good clip, with assured them of their seascn every intention of challenging for points win, so they decided to call the overall win, and Carlos Ibarra, it a day. both Senior and Junior, were back In the meantime, the Ibarras with their hastily repaired Ford, _ were sidelined with a bad coil, and when their crew got one out to them, it didn't work either. Finally, after two and a half hours, they completed their first lap, and headed out for their second. And, after an uncontested second lap, they had the class win for this event, so they also called it a day. There was only a pair of Class 8 trucks on hand, one had one lap but this Ford of Carlos Ibarra, Jr. & Sr., did two laps and they won the Class 8 title and the points. The one seat 1600 cars went next, and the points leader, Kevin Basore, in a Jimco, was in front when they came back around. One of his toughest challengers, Doug Halvin, in a Raceco, didn't get his first lap done, but Tom Watson and Mike Scaroni, in a Jimco, were close behind him, in second place. Todd Teuscher had his Chenowth in third place, after rolling when he hit a ditch in the dust. He'd needed help from spectators to get upright again. Todd Acosta was fourth in Phil Green's Chenowth, and that's all there were. At the end of the second lap Basore had a little over three minutes, and it was still Watson and Scaroni in second place. Teuscher was third still, with Acosta only 11 seconds in back of him. On the third lap Basore ticked off the fast lap for the dass at 3 7 minutes flat, and now he had five and a half minutes on Watson and Scaroni. Acosta was still third, followed by Teuscher, who'd got his second wind, and was closing up. Basore, who didn't even have to stop for gas, stayed in front, with Watson and Scaroni following, now 11 minutes back, at the end of lap four. And Teuscher had moved to third place, while Acosta made a driver change, putting Phil Green into the car, and he was now fourth.

But leading where it counted at the checkered flag was Chris Garrett who took that lead late in the game and held it. for just his second time, while the team of Robert, Ruben and Mario Gutierrez ran third, not liking the way they had their suspension set up. Snaith settled in to a steady pace and stayed in front, with Brindell firm in second place. Brindell was at something of a disadvantage, since his race trans had broken on Thursday, during testing, and he'd had to install a transmission from a Class 5 car, which gave him the wrong gearing, and a fourth gear that was literally not usable on this course. The Gutierrez team kept moving along also, in third. They ran in the same order through the remainder of the race, and Snaith took the win, and, with it, the season points. Brindell finished second, and the Gutierrez team expected to finish third, but when last seen, Robert and Ruben were still at the finish line, wondering what had happened to Mario. He'd been seen on the last leg, but never got to the checkered flag. The Mini Mag folks took off into the desert next, and Frank and Steve Bristing had the early lead, and the quick lap for the group, at 41: 11. Rick Ellison ran second, Chris Garrett was third, less than a minute later, and Yoshi Ogasawara was fourth, just 19 seconds later. But at the end of the second lap it was Ellison in the lead, Garrett second, and the · Richard Green and Dan Lewis brought out the Class 100 Sandhawk, were in Bristings third, while Ogasawara and out of the lead, despite a flat, but they came back fast enough to win the spent over an hour making some _c_la_s_s_b.c..y_j_u_s_t _2_½_m_in_u_t_es_,_a_n_d_w_in_t_h_e_c_la_ss_s_ea_s_o_n_p_o_in_t_s _ti_tl_e. ______ , time consuming repairs. lead increased to two minutes, with Pate still second, and Plunkett's co-driver, Ernie Silva, now at the wheel, and in third, still. Abatti continued to charge, while the Pates made a driver change, putting Bill, Sr. in for the last two laps, and at the end of the fourth lap the Abatti car was nearly nine minutes in the lead. Silva still ran third, but they'd had to weld up the front end, and he'd been driving conservatively, not suce the welds would hold. On the last lap, Mike Abatti put his brother, Jim, into the car, and he continued at the same kind of pace, to take the win for the team, and the season points champion-ship. The Pates, who'd lost time when a teflon coating on their throttle cable had slipped and caused a sticky throttle, finished second, very pleased with the results of their first full year in racing. Plunkett and Silva put Dave Woodward in for the last lap in their car, and he decided not to worry about the welded front end, and ran hard, but couldn't make up the lost time. The team still had a nice third place for their scrapbook. The 5-1600s were next off the March 1994 line, and Bob Snaith immediately went out and recorded the class fast lap, at 41 :54, to take the lead. Snaith did things a little different~ ly this time, and started out with a crumpled car, thanks to his co-d river, Chris Harrold, who'd been out testing the day before and had rolled over. Harrold hadn't enjoyed the experience, and still feeling a bit shaken, had decided to let Snaith have all the f~n on race day. In second behind Snaith was ohn Brindell, racin At the end of the third lap things had changed again, and it was now Garrett in front, Ellison second and the Bristings third, with Ogasawara a distant fourth. Garrett then led to the finish line, his only stop being one quick fuel dump, and took the win by seven minutes. Ellison drove all but the last several miles of the fifth lap, when he handed over to Mike Thurlow, to keep the entry legal, and they were second, .followed in two hours later by Larry Kern and Mike Pfankuch have an odd looking body on their Class 9 car, but looks are not everything, and the boys went fast into second in the Rayco, and took the lead late in the game and won Class 9 by two minutes.

Kevin Graves led the majority of the race in Class 9, but sad to say his Jimco lost a wheel, it broke, just before the finish line, and he was second. Ray Miller and Dennis Daniels had a good run, in 1hird in Class 9, and they finished third in the Chenowth to win the season points championship. Scott Young and Mike Smith outlasted three other srarters in small trucks and they were the only finisher in Class 7, the winner in their Ford Ranger. Ogasawara in third, as the Bristings faded on the last lap. In Class 100, which was next to take off, the first lap leader was Richard Green, in a Sandhawk. He had about43 seconds on Dave Bonner and Mike Hawley in their Chenowth, and they were a minute and 12 seconds in front of Bill Gill in his Funco. Ken and Bob Hargrove, in another Funco, were fourth, 20 seconds later. Bonner and Hawley moved into the lead on the second lap, with 45 seconds on Green, who was now three minutes and a little more up on Gill. The Hargroves had dropped out. On the third lap things changed again, and, while Bonner and Hawley continued to lead, Gill moved into second, as Green and Lewis dropped back to third, with a rear flat. But then Bonner and Hawley disappeared. Dan Lewis took over for Green, and his first lap was the fast lap for the class, at 39:53, moving him back in front of Gill by a minute and five seconds. His luck held, and he had a good last lap also, giving the team the win and the class season points. Gill was second, only two and a half minutes later, and none of the others finished. Class 9 was a big group, and Kevin Graves put his foot in it and zipped off the fast lap for the class, at 43:07, to take the early lead in his Jimco. Larry Kern ran second in his Rayco, over two minutes back, followed by Todd Johnson, in a MECO, and then Mike Stroh, in his Suspensions Unlimited car in fourth. In fifth place fr was Dennis Daniels in a Chenowth. Graves had just under four minutes on Kern at the end of lap two, and Johnson was still third, followed by Stroh and then Daniels, still running fifth. The third lap was a bit different, though Graves still led. Mike Pfankuch had taken over for Kern, and he was second, now five minutes back. In third it was Stroh, as Johnson broke his car, and that moved Ray Miller, who'd taken over for Daniels, into fourth. They were fighting with a coil wire that kept breaking. Jack Hettinger and Steve Reynolds, in a Funco, were now up to fifth place. Graves was driving the whole distance, and his only problem so far had been a flat. At the end of the fourth lap he was eight minutes in front, and Pfankuch still held second, followed by Miller, who'd moved up a position as Stroh lost some time. Stroh was now fourth, with Hettinger and Reynolds still fifth. Graves looked like a sure fire win, but as he headed for the last stretch his car suddenly settled out and his rear wheel went past him, in two pieces. While he waited for his crew to bring out a spare, the Kern and Pfankuch team motored on in to the checkered flag. Graves got back together in time to salvage second place, and Miller, who was third, only a minute and 48 seconds later, took the season points win.

LA RANA DESERT RACING Bob Miller Wins The New Years 100 At Barstow Overall l3y Carol Clark 1 Bob Miller said before the race he was going for the overall, and he wasn't kidding. His four laps were within two minutes of each other, and he swept into the overall victory by 11 minutes, having no trouble at all on the way. This was indeed a beautiful day names and very few racers. I did for racing. The sky was bright get flagged down by old friends blue and the sun was out and Tom and Jeff Bohla. Jeff was smiling down on the racing starting the race and I think this is community in the beautiful the first or second race he has Mojave Desert. The race was tried since he got his hand almost about a half hour late in getting cut off at work. He did lose a started, with last minute officials finger and the rest of his hand has getting set up and getting their some severe tendon and nerve equipment and radios up and damage for which he has to have operating. When all was ready therapy regularly. The good news and the green flag dropped, there is that the way the fingers are bent, were a total of88 racers out of91 they just fit around a steering entries who took off in 30 second wheel, so Jeff was going to give it a intervals. shot and see just how much he I was able to walk amongst the could take. I wished them luck racers while they were in the and that was the lastl saw of them staging area prior to the start of ·for the day. They got in two~3 the race. I must say it was a very hour plus, laps, so I know they strange feeling, it almost felt like I were not too happy. I just never was at a race in another state or found out what happened to something. I recognized very few them. Truck racing may have gained a convert at this race as Larry Roese/er tried four wheels instead of two and drove two laps in Curt LeDuc's Class 8 winning Ford and this odd couple also finished fourth overall. ~ P1wtos: T rackside P1wto Inc. I also ran into Bob Miller, who has been known to win a race or two in his day and I asked him if he was going for the overall and he said yes, "If all goes the way I have it planned, I'll take the overall". Guess what, he did! Bob brought his Class 10 race car across the finish line in a total time of 4:46:31. He was very pleased with himself and very grateful to all who helped him get this win. He was especially grateful to Bob Bower of BF Goodrich Tires for telling him what tire to run. He had had a different type of tire on the car at the last race and had 4 or 5 flats. He knew some of the mistakes he had made at the last race and he said that besides having the wrong tire, he had too cocky of an attitude and that doomed that race even though he did finish in the top ten, it just wasn't a good clean race. Bob had a real special thanks for his crew chief, Gene, who "worked his ~ Brad Inch turned in a great race, winning Class 1-2-1600 by about 12 minutes, a big margin in that class.

He had one stop all day Jim Tucker and Mike McGee whipped their Raceco over the tundra to a fine and that was for gas. The rest of second in Class 10 and they also finished a swift third overall too. the day all he had to do was aim ~ the car and follow the course off the line. markings. He says that since he The second place overall and started the New Year off so good first in Class 1600 was Brad Inch, maybe his wife will let him run the Lothringer, who has been around whole series if he takes her on a off road racing for a long time and little vacation to some place really just hasn't had a real good run of nice. Stay tuned, we'll see if she luck lately. He finished just about goes for it, come on Mrs. Miller, 10 minutes behind Miller. He was Bob has a lot of fans out here that very happy with his finishing would like to see him take the position and said that the only overall for the year. He also thing that went wrong for him all wanted to thank his chiropractor day was he broke his exhaust for getting his back into shape for during the race and that was about this race too. His last thank you it. He wanted to thank Eddie for was to Eddie Castro for letting the great rocky course, he loved it. him use the scales to weigh his car His other thank yous went out to before the race so he could fine Lothringer, Wiks, Transaxle tune his suspension before going Engineering and C.O.R.E. The eventual winner in Class 1, John De Vito in his Chevy, pulls up a typical Barstow trail loaded with sharp inclines, and after first lap trouble, the Chevy ran well to the checkered flag. Jim Tucker took third overall and second in Class 10. He says he got beat by 13 minutes, but he did have a few minor problems like a broken shock, broken exhaust and a bent right front wheel, so he figured if all of the above did not occur, he would have had a real chance at the overall because the car ran flawlessly. He did say that he would like a little less dust next time. Our fourth place finisher and first in Class 8 was the team of Curt LeDuc and nearly world famous motorcycle racer, Larry Roeseler. Curt started the race and averaged about 1:11:22 per lap and said he had no troubles at all. His Goodyear Rambo Tires did a magnificent job and he wanted to also thank Shell Truck Guard for their help. This was Larry's first time in a 4 wheel vehicle and he was really impressed; he and Curt traded seats at the beginning of the third lap and Larry said this kind of a ride is a totally different experience and he was really impressed. He did say however that he really was tempted to take the motorcycle trails and had to keep reminding himself that he wasn't on a bike. Having that big truck body around you and all the protection of the cage in the truck is just amazing. He says he really . thinks he could learn to like this ,,.,. Steve McMullin and Tom Craig had a fine drive in the desert in the Mateo 2 seater, and they placed it second in Class 1-2-1600 and also fifth overall. Jim Joyce and Drew Keys had some delay on the second lap, about ten minutes worth, but they carried on in the Raceco to take third in Class 1-2-1600, 6th 0 /A. Ron Stobaugh and Dave Rittenhouse were second in Class 1 over 40 minutes back with big problems on the last lap, but they finished, second in class. Page 16 March 1994 Dusty Times

This little beauty's name is Ashley and she was right there along with her Mom to see Grandpa take that winning checkered flag. Mike said that Tom Moessner passed them and left tire marks on the side of the car. They had no problems, everything went real smooth and they just picked off the cars one at a time. They did, however, run through a pit that wasn't supposed to be there. I had heard something about that on the radio and I guess the officials were having a hard time convincing this particular group to relocate. Perhaps they got the message after Jim flew through. They had one . pit stop and that was for fuel. Out . on the course they did plow into the rear of a 1600 car that was stopped in front of them and they hit the binders but could not stop fast enough; for this they are sorry.

The rest of the day he says he spent chasing Brad. Steve took the last two laps and Tom Craig took the first two. finished third in class and 12th overall. He said it was rough and spine tingling. They thought they had some clutch problems, but after stopping to get things checked out, they could find nothing wrong, so the pit crew sent them on their way. Larry drove the entire race by himself and said he was real glad to see that checkered flag, cuz he was flat pooped. He had a good day and was very happy with their finish.

They were really looking for a win like they got at this very race last year. Jim said it was real dusty and kind of hard to pass some of the big trucks because of the dust. Their overall finishing position was sixth. -Since there were so many 1600's, they were coming in faster than I could keep track. Fourth place in Class 1600 and 7th overall was the team of John Prosser and Craig Forrest. Craig took the first lap and then climbed into his persona[ vehicle and headed for Paso Robles for some important function. He did not have a real easy time of it on his one lap. He lost his clutch and master cylinder on his lap, quite a bit of down time required to make these repairs. When John got in the air cleaner came off and a return spring broke, I don't know spring to what, but they had to stop to get that fixed too. After that, things seemed to go pretty smooth. They didn't have any flats, butthey did wear out a set of Yokohama tires and may switch brands since Yokohama is not paying contingency this year.

In Class 55015-1600 second place went to Wayne Camarano and Adam Ostlund. I looked through my notes and can't find any words of wisdom from them, so either they did not stop for an interview or this aged reporter had her contacts in backwards and just didn't see them; I am sorry fellas. If I do miss you, remember to hunt me down, I'm usually lurking somewhere in the immediate area just outside of post tech, with pad and pen in hand ready to hear all the war stories. Third place in Class 55015-1600 went to an ex LRDR checkpoint dude, Scott Boyd and he was nothing but smiles when co-driver Rick Houstrnan brought the car into the finish line. This was their first finish after four tries and third place was just fine with them. They had NO troubles, no flats, no problems at all. This was their first finish in an old car and now want to get their first finish in a new car, but first they have to build one, a detail which they will get around to one of these days. Class 1 / 2 combined only had two official finishers. The first of these was John De Vito who has been building his S 10 mid engine, extra cab truck for the last four months and finished it at 2:30 AM the night before the race and loaded it in the semi and came racing. He had absolutely no test time whatsoever on the truck, but decided to give it a shot to see what she could do. They did lose the power steering, I don't know on what lap and had four flats, one front and three rear, John attributes the flats to driver error Dusty Timcs

and a really rocky course. Second place went to Ron Stobaugh who must have come in after I left. In looking at the times for his laps, 1 and 2 were really slow and 3 and 4 were really fast, so some problems that happened on 1 & 2 must have gotten solved by 3 & 4. In the 7 trucks, Dan Cannon in Class 725 was the only finisher. He said they let the competitors get in front of him and let them break and he just cruised right on by them. About the only thing that happened was they lost radio communication on the third lap, so they just kept their fingers crossed that nothing major went wrong. The rest of the day they just tried to stay away from the rocks and when they could they opened it up in the short fast stret c hes. H e was glad that nothing went wrong, because his crew consisted of his wife Sheryl and his mailman, the rest of the crew pulled a "no show". Class 9 had a new guy named Dewey LaMora, first time ever in a race car, Rick Johnson's car and said he lost a coil wire and rear brakes, but started pumping them and all came back. W e didn't get a chance to talk with the stock truck racers, but we do have results. In Class 15 the winner was a Ford driven by Bob and John Beyer and sponsored by BBM Marketing Promotion. They did two good laps, the first at 1:43 and the second at 1:48, and apparently had no troubles. Their winning time was 3:32:37. In second place it was 5-1600 racer turned trucker Kathy Fay with both Keith Williams and her dad Jim Fay riding a lap in the Ford R anger, sponsored by Engine Machine Service. Kathy had 20 minutes worth of trouble on the first lap but a good 1 :59 second lap to secure second in Class 15, about 12 minutes ahead of Joe and Denny Bourassa in a Toyota sponsored by DG Racing and BFGoodrich T. Les Willis got in just one lap in his Toyota and Barry Beacham didn't do a lap in his Toyota. In Class 152 Larry Gross and Roger Malcolm won the two truck duel ofT oyotas, doing their two laps a full hour faster than Mike Yarman and Mike Stock-berger. 3:40: 18 for Gross on total time in the Full Tilt Off Road rig and 4:43:54 for Yarman, spon-sored by Goodyear and Prime W heel. Fred Nelson, Jr. and Sr. were the only Class 155 starter in their Ford, but they didn't cover a lap. Ray Currie and George Maher won Class 157 in their Ford by almost an hour doing their two laps just 12 minutes apart and finishing in 3:40:30 . David Edelstein and Dennis Lightle had a good 1 :53 first lap in the vintage Ford Bronco, but took almost an hour longer on the second round with some unknown troubles, finishing in 4:39:32. In the quads Derek Nye and Mike Haney won on a Honda in 3: 19:09 for their two laps, with Cole Warren and Steve Deing-man on a Suzuki right behind them at 3:22:01. David Totten also finished his two laps on a Suzuki, but took 4:20:22 to get it done, having big trouble on the first lap. All three starters covered the route.

Larry Gross and Roger Malcolm had two good laps in their Toyota and they won Class 1525 by over an hour with no apparent troubles on the rough Barstow course.

Of the 88 starters the weekend after New Year's day, 32 of those required to cover four laps did that on the Barstow course. Ron Stobaugh and Dave Rittenhouse in the troubled Class 1 Chevy had the dubious honor of being last overall at 7:54:09.

BRUSH RUN 101 ALookAtHow The World Championship Off Road Race llqan By Michelle Halverson It was Labor Day Weekend, 1969. It seemed like any other weekend in the small town of Crandon, WI, population just under 2,000, but after it was over, the lives of many people would never be the same. The air was clean and fresh, the trees and grass a deep green, the birds were sing-ing and everything was peaceful. Then they came -hundreds and hundreds of them. They were all different but, yet, connected by something. It had happened. Off road racing had hit Crandon, WI, and so the tradition began. Tradition. According to the dictionary, tradition is the hand-ing down of information, beliefs, or customs from one generation to another. This year Crandon will be celebrating 25 memorable years of an off road racing tradi-tion known as the Brush Run 101 World Championship Off Road Race. What has grown into "the Granddaddy of them all" or the "Daytona 500" of off road racing began only as a twinkle in the eyes of a few people 25 years ago. Started by the ~randon Area Jay-cees, the off road race was basic-ally a challenge of the country folk and the "city dudes". Each of the 4 7 entries gave their heart and soul, over 101 miles, through the rugged forest of Northern Wis-consin. They struggled over boulders and fallen trees, dodging gravestones in the cemetary a_!ld cattle in the fields, with mud holes that could almost engulf all of man and machine. All of this, just for a shot at part of the$1,500.00 purse. People came from all over to cheer on their friends, neigh-bors, or anyone they could for that matter. It had only just begun. This first year would start a family. They would come back year after year, each time adding new family members. The drivers, the spon-sors, the fans, the volunteers, the off road racing family is like no other. As the years went by, the Wolfs Head Sportsman's Club became the event organizer. Since the very first race to the present all the proceeds have gone back into making the race better for eve-ryone and into making the com-munity and surrounding area bet-ter for its residents. The club donates to numerous clubs and organizations, plus families who are in need due to fire, medical problems or similar catastrophic circumstances. Bigger and better became the motto: The word was spreading that Crandon was the place to be for the best in off road racing. By 1976, the purse had grown to over $20,000, with over 300 entries and 35,000 spectators. In this same year, the World Champ-ionship Off Road Race became an official trademark and would prove to everyone to be a fitting name. In 1979, the peacefulness of the forest, fields and cemetary would return, due to the anger of numerous landowners, as the track was moved west of town. This new five mile track provided a better viewing area for specta-tors, but still offered the excite-ment and challenge that everyone had grown to love. But the club wanted something to call their own. After coming across an extreme! y good deal, the World Championship Off Road Race finally found it in 1984, as it moved to the 300 acre farm where it is located today. This provided the opportunity to make the off road race better for everyone involved. The crowd would be able to view 95% of the 1.7 track, making it hard to miss any of the action. The fans, drivers, spon-sors, and volunteers would benefit from the renovations done to existing buildings and construction of new buildings, including the barn, pavillion, tower, registration and tech build-ing, and the office. A one of a kind in off road racing was just added last year with extreme success. Skyboxes were added that allow comfort while being able to see close to 100% of the track. Due to great success of the Labor Day race, a second race, called the Spring Run, was added in June of 1984. This would ena-ble the drivers a second chance to CALIFORNIA PRE-FUN BYPASS VALVE KITS!

One of the most important years came in 1989. This would be the first year that ESPN would give international coverage to the World Championship Off Road Race. In this spotlight, came top drivers from all over the country and Canada, including, now famous Indy car driver, Robby Gordon and the legendary Walker Evans, both travelling from California. Although strangers at first, Walker Evans and ESPN are now a familiar and important part of the family. Now it's 1994, and the 1994 racing season is just around the comer. The World Champion-ship Off Road Race endured and withstood through 25 years and came out on top. There seems to be no stopping it. This year the off road racing family will celebrate the Silver Anniversary of this his-toric event. -To make this celebration even more special, events and attrac-tions have been planned for a full week of excitement. Some of the plans in the woiks right now include a possible appearance by the Governor of W isconsin, the Budweiser Clydesdales, a parade of race vehicles down main street, racing related workshops, and a Governor's Cup Race. The club is also planning a purse of $100,000, the most road racing. Every-one will be extremely busy to make this the best and most excit-ing race yet. The help of many people must be there to make this race possible. This race is a total community involvement with all the help being done all by volunteers. They ask for no payment, except to know that they put on the best off road race in the country. There is also a tremendous amount of help from all of their sponsors. There are so many, but the major sponsors are Chevrolet, Budweiser, and Pepsi-Cola. Come join us in 1994 for the SODA sanctioned Chevrolet World Championship Off Road Race and its Silver Anniversary celebration. Become a part of the family and start your own tradi-tion. For more information, please call the World Champion-ship Off Road Race office at (715) 478-2222. In the early days of the now famous race it ran through the woods, and a lot of creeks. We don't know who these people are, how they ever got scored, but they kept coming back for more and their numbers grew year by year. The locations changed almost yearly until the sponsoring club literally bought the farm, right on the outskirts of Crandon, yearly continue to improve the facility right on Highway 8, and it is now the most modern of short course facilities for off road racing anywhere, the only one in fact with sky boxes added in 1993. It is an American success story as the race grows yearly, attracting more major sponsors, more entries, and more and more spectators to a place remote from any major transportation route. The 25th Anniversary edition is preceded in June by the Spring Run on the super good track, and it is also a must see for off road racing fans. Dusty Times

SNORE EL DORADO ISO Mike Flinn Takes The Overall Home To Utah By Don Da1ton -Notes lry Jean Calvin Plwtos: Don Da,wn It wasn.'t an easy win in Unlimited Class for Tommy Bradley who had a pair of flats and worse yet sev9re engine trouble that slowed him, but he got in all five laps to keep his string of Unlimited victories going. ~ .....c, ___ .:.__ __ __::__ _______ _::::_-=-----------~ <~_:.-~~ ~~ Traffic can get heavy in the desert as here Ed Dunn's Sportsman Buggy is passed by John Gaughan's Unlimited Class 1 Chenowth. Notice the courtesy of the slower car in moving over in the foreground. John Gaughan, with Peter Castleton riding shotgun, set fast lap of the day on the second lap, took the lead on the third round, then had serious brake troubles, finished lap four of five for second in Class 1 /2. The Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusiasts closed out their 1993 season with the Eldorado 250 on December 3-5, with all activity near Henderson, Nevada. . Sponsored by the Lonesome Dove Steak House, long time eat-ery near Henderson south of Las Vegas on Boulder Highway, the course was just off Boulder High-way on the road to Nipton, Hwy 95 and used a former motocross course for the start finish area. . · The course_ basically is the back side of the Mint 400 course when that race ran out of Jean, NV and it is a rough one, and five laps were required for Classes l/2, 1-2-1600 and lO, while the others needed four laps for an official finish. The festivities began on Friday evening at the Lonesome Dove with Registration and tech inspec-tion in their side parking lot from 6 to 9 p.m. A good turnout of racers appeared, and also in line were several contingency donors. Mike Flinn took another big check home to Utah and $500 in bonus bucks as he had no troubles at all with all five laps within two minutes of each other and he won Class 10 by 15 minutes and won the race overall . . ..... , Everyone was in !I festive mood·-and Christmas lights added to the remarkable outdoor lighting that is typical of Las Vegas. It was all over on time, several local racers registering but asking for early morning tech as their cars were not done yet. It was cold, but the organizers provided a glorified smudge pot to keep hands and feet functioning for the tech boys and others just standing around. We repaired to the Lonesome Dove to sample the food, and it is good, before calling it a night.

Mike Baker came from Utah to try his skills against SNORE racing and he had four good laps but was down on the fifth with mechanical woes and still placed third in class. Regan, Tory and Jeremy Gubler ran well for four laps, then it all came apart, finally losing a spring plate which put them down to fourth in 1-2-1600 class. Billy Bryan and Les Carter had three good laps, slowed some on lap 4, and had carb troubles, ran out of gas, but placed fifth in Class 1-2-1600. Jim O'Donnell also drove solo in Class 9, ran just off the winning pace all the way, lost the pumper hose but made it home OK for a good second in class.

Ed Herbst had a laundry list of woes starting with losing the front hood, then he and Mike Corrigan hit a big rock and popped a spring plate, got to their pit, got fixed and went on to make it to Check 3 near the end of the lap with the oil light flickering, so Ed stopped and when he did all the oil, or plenty of it, fell out of the Porsche engine on the ground, so he was parked. Up front it was a tight game between John Gaughan/Peter Castleton and Tom Bradley Jr. / Eric Record. Bradley was first on the road from lap 1, but Gaughan, who had a first lap flat, took the lead at the SI F leading Bradley on time and on the road, as Tommy's troubles began. Gaughan made a gas stop and shortly thereafter the left rear brake caliper locked up for good, and that doesn't work in the rocky hills that make up most of the course. John did finish lap 4 after a couple of hours, to take second place. Meanwhile Tommy Bradley had a couple of flats, had lost a cylinder, had a hole in the head, but he wanted to finish to insure his class championship so he putted around the fifth lap in 1 :20:02 after having set fast lap for the race on lap 2 at 57:55. But he got the checkered flag and the class victory. A cadre of BORE racers made the trip from Salt Lake City to race the rocks and hills in December and team leader on record was Mike Flinn who had won Class 10 here at SNORE races before. Despite a $500 bonus to the Class 10 winner, only six showed to contest the class. Starting first Flinn held the lead on the road and second on time after one lap by a minute over Darren Wilson, but fellow Utah racer Barry Merriam was last five minutes back, but that was his only lap, so he placed sixth. But Rich Fersch led the first lap with fast lap of 1 :04:26. Wil-son had throttle cable problems on the first lap, then lost his brakes on the second round, which putJ.C. Dean into a tie with Flinn on time for the lead. Wilson had brake trouble on lap 2 and slid off a 30 foot cliff, but reco-vered and carried on, losing about ten minutes. Mike Larson and John Phegley had a great first lap, in third, but three and a half hours on the second lap was all she wrote, and they were fifth in class. Lap 3, midway saw Fersch re-cover from 35 minutes down time on lap 2, to run third behind Wil-son, while Flinn sailed on with a I :07 lap to take the lead, and J.C. Dean stopped midway with a Bill Holbrook was leading the points overall going into the race, so he ran a conservative pace after setting fast Class 9 lap on round 2, had front end trouble on lap 3 but survived to finish with enough points to be the champ. rough sounding engine, so rough day.

Dan shucked out a CV joint and Bekki broke a drive axle, naturally right in the middle of the "Can't get to them" section of the course.

Their only problems were having the top of the car come loose, then breaking a throttle cable. They finished with the co-driver pulling a wire to operate the gas. Bill Holbrook needed at least a fifth place finish in order to cinch the SNORE Points Champion-ship.

Tony and Jimmy Leonard and Steve Westlund were on the trailer with discombobulated front struts before completing a lap. The entry in the Sportsman classes has been lower than expected by SNORE officials. The Sportsman Buggy Class put four cars on the starting line but some of them were ill pre-pared for the major hazards on course it seems. Dennis and Ed Looney, Curt Banschback and Kai Louks got fourth place with one very long lap completed, 3:24:09. Their hydraulic clutch went junk early and things went rapidly downhill from there. Will Bassett and Scott Silag took third place with one good lap, but on the second they lost a trailing arm and a CV which parked them for the day. Jack and Ellen Clinken-beard and Jeffrey Sims got off to a great start, turning fast time for the class at 1: 17 :59 on the first round, followed that with a 1:22, and had a good lead midway. Then they lost a tire, the whole wheel and tire went rolling off into the desert. They replaced the tire, but then the battery was dead and they could not get restarted, so they were second. The winners were Ed Dunn, Jamie Egan Sr, Michael Dunn, Michael Tucker and Fred Carstensen. They made a fun day of it, changing drivers every lap and giving everyone a ride in the race. It is pleasant at a winter race to have it all over in the daylight. In fact SNORE had already picked up the banners and ribbons at the start/ finish area when we left, and were going to sweep part of the course before dark. We headed back to our home away from home in Las Vegas at the Gold Coast Hotel, moving out of the desert and into the glitter of the city for the evening, and it is quite a contrast. Next morning we headed back towards Henderson and the Lonesome Dove, who hosted the tasty race Awards Breakfast for racers and their crews and fami-lies. The first timers from Utah had never seen anything like this, and the group of five were already planning how they could coordi-nate vacations to do another SNORE event before the snow melts and their own Bonneville Off Road Series begins in late spring. We took the scenic route, heading south on Boulder High-way a few miles to Route 95 head-ing toward Searchlight, then jogged onto 164 and headed west to 1-15 through the most incredi-ble Joshua tree forest we have ever seen. All too soon we reached California, 1-15 and the road to Barstow and home, and the work-a-day world.

F.A.I.R. News By Dave Massingham We had our year end van cleaning and equipment prep for the 1994 season. Thanks to Wayne Morgan for hosting it at Quality Auto Parts in Norwalk. We cleaned, restocked and oiled the pit boxes and tested the radios. All welders received an oil and filter change and all were started and test welded and adjusted. Seems we have prob-lems with the welders at the races. It is a good idea to start and run your welder and test weld to make sure all is OK before the action starts. Thanks to all who helped at the work party: Bruce Streeper, Harry Dunne, Jim Fay, Keith Williams, Anthony Burton, Wes and Scott Wisdom, David Edelstein, Scott Duncan, Brian Parkhouse, Bob Bezzant, Steve Ollie, Jim Enders, Mike Butricks and David (Garf) Jamison. An extra "atta boy" to Garf for his great barbecue. · A special thanks goes to Brian Parkhouse for letting us park the van at his Bell Gardens plant. Brian also got the van smogged for us and that is a big help. "Thanks again, Brian." At the December 15 meeting we had a guest speaker, Al Stein of Diversified Business Services. Al is a financial advisor and works with the off road racing industry. He gave us some tips on IRS deductions and a few other helpful hints. Al is located in Chino and his phone number is (909) 628-1922 should you have any questions. Bob Steinberger is asking for. help calling for donations to the F.A.I.R. raffle at the meetings. Anyone with the time, please contact Bob at PCI Race Radios. The new members voted in were Jerry Beal, Scott Duncan and Chris Duncan. At the first meeting of 1994 on January 5 we reviewed the La Rana January 8 race and planned for the SCORE Parker 400 on January 22. For the La Rana New Years 200, we had eight entries with SO percent finishing, Danny Drake took the controls of the FAIR van, drove to Barstow and took care of Race Manager duties. Assisting him were Rich Persch, Harry Dunne and Mike Robelido. Here are the results of our teams from the New Years 200. Mike Nix was first in Class 5 after over a year off. Mike had his share of problems testing Friday and prior to the race starting. Mike did a hell of a job. "Welcome back". Kathy Fay was second in Class 7S even after all her problems with the alternator and batteries. Wes and Scott Wisdom were seventh in Class 1-2-1600 after having several brake and carb problems. In the DNF column came four of our racers: Jerry Erstad in Class 1-2-1600, as it was too late for him to complete the last lap; Joel Mohr in Class 9 who lost a motor after losing a valve cover as a result of being hit; Danny Drake and Rich Persch who led Class 5-1600 for two laps, then they broke an axle; Bob Plaskon came in with a broken lower trailing arm on his Class 1-2-1600 racer. Last but not least David Edelstein, Class 1575 4WD Full Stock, finished second but not . without causing some problems at pit "B". It seems David came into pit ''B" too hot and while turning around, showered the pit with rocks and dust. Then when leaving, he did the sam~ thing. Dave committed a cardinal sin in off road racing, "Don't piss off the pits!" This act, in fact, pissed off a lot of pit people, not only FAIR but all others in the area. There were many nasty words sent over the radio to David sounding something like, "Don't come back here you Blank De Bleep Bleep!" Dave called me, confessed his sins and asked for names and phone numbers to call each FAIR pit person to apologize person-ally. He also asked me to print an apology to everyone else at pit "B". Dave feels like a fool and realizes what he did was wrong. I hope all racers take this to heart and do their best to have the utmost respect for all pits. Danny Drake told me how much help Mike Robelido was in the main pit. Mike is a good example of a dedicated FAIR pit person. He will soon be in a race car of his own or driving with someone else. Thanks for being there Mike! Rich Persch and Harry Dunne were helping when they weren't in the race car. I don't want to forget Bruce Streeper. Bruce is always there to help. "Thanks Bruce, we do appreciate your help." No matter what Harry says. The bulk of the January 5 meeting was covering Parker 400 pit assignments and duties. Much discussion on how important it is to coordinate a good pit location, layout and job assignment. A pit captain should take charge assigning jobs to everyone. It's important to have this done before the cars start coming in. One person should talk to the driver and let the crew know what needs to be done. One person should stand in front of the car until all work is done, making sure all is clear before letting the car out. The pit should have tires lined up for easy access and identification. You should have tools out with easy access and organized so there is no problem getting the right size tool. Keep the gasing and welding at opposite ends of the pit with a fire extinguisher easily available. Each of our pit boxes has this information on it. Try reading it! New members voted in were Brady Wisdom, Bob Plaskon, Jerry Erstad and David Zuniga. Welcome fellows! Finally I want to respond to a letter that was anonymously mailed to Bob Bezzant. I will address one issue and Bob will respond to the rest in our FAIR News. The issue' is FAIR pitting with the Chapala Dusters and the questions were: 1) When we pit for the Dusters, do they pay FAIR for the use of the equipment? No, nor does FAIR pay the Dusters. 2) Do they supply pit workers and tires on the same level as FAIR members? Yes, the Dusters take their assigned pit location and man them with their members and equipment, unless we team up at the same pit location. Then we split the equipment equally. 3) At La Rana races we pit for all of the Duster guys and I don't think they ever signed up or paid a . dime! FAIR pitted for one Duster in 1993, Joel Mohr. We might have had a few more, but Joel was at most of the races. We came to the· agreement that Joel will become a member and pay FAIR support fees for 1994. He will also furnish pit support as he always did in 1993. 4) The last statement in the letter said, "If the Dusters can't survive on their own, they should join FAIR and dissolve their club." FAIR can't make it on our own at the longer races either, for example, the Baja 500 and Baja 1000. Both FAIR and the Dusters would have a hard time setting up 8 to 10 pits. FAIR doesn't have the equipment nor manpower. We have com-bined our efforts to support th ·· racers. That's the bottom line! The FAIR Board of Directors would like to meet with the person who sent this letter to resolve any questions and bad feelings he or she may have toward us. Please contact me. The FAIR raffle is a fund raiser to upgrade the FAIR van and it is under way. We hope to generate enough funds to add equipment and repair and repaint the truck. Any proceeds left over will be donated to COR VA. First Prize is a free entry into the SCORE Fireworks 250 or $500.00 cash. Second Prize is 3 days and 2 nights in San Felipe. Third prize is one year free membership. FAIR meetsat8:00 p.m. on the first and third Wednesday of each month, at the Holiday Inn in Fullerton located at the 9 Freeway and Harbor Blvd. Guests are always welcome.

Paris lly Nlsht Divisional Rally By Dave Thomas Southwest Division SCCA driving champion Ken Stewart of Grove, OK and co-driver Ralph Starr of Alamogordo, NM took the victory at the Paris by Night Pro Rally held in Paris, Texas on 27 November, Thanksgiving weekend. Their winning time of 1:47 :44 for the 102 stage miles in Ken's 350 cubic inch, super-charged four wheel drive Chev-rolet S-10 Blazer, also topped the 4WD class, which had only one other entry in the coefficient three divisional Pro Rally. Second overall and first in 02 ( over two liters, two wheel drive) was the Indiana team of Mike Hurst and Brent Cary in the Schmidt Automotive Nissan 200 SX with a time of 1:50:38. Four minutes back, third overall and second in 02 was the Lawrenceville, GA father/ son team of Robert and Bill Waits in a Mazda RX-7 at 1:54:10. Floyd Shrader and Don Gage in the Mediquick Clinics/ Don Gage Auto Service Ford. Escort were the U2 class winners ; ( under two liters, two wheel' drive), and finished eighth· overall. There was a considerable amount of ice in the shaded areas of the course as well as in the parking lot of the Paris Holiday Inn, which made everyone a bit cautious but caused no major offs. Stew-art/Starr won the first stage. Then another Georgia team, Charles McCrary and Erik Lombard in the Barron Garage Mazda RX-7, won the next four, -letting the Chevrolet team have the sixth stage and a cumulative lead of Dustv11ma seven seconds at the main break. The finishing order of the rally was all but determined at this point as the Colorado team of Bob and Rick Burtis in the Renaud Excavation/Coys Tire and Wheel Volkswagen Rabbit had blown a head gasket and had the car back on the trailer. Seems . the turbo was making way too much boost for the lower altitude. McCrary /Lombar-d slowed considerably on the next stage, and then at the start of a turnaround stage, their car refused to start, netting them 14 minutes of road points and dropping them to seventh place overall at 2:05:23. The Ohio team of Richard Paddock and Karen Finnerty in their Eagle Talon placed fourth overall and second in 4WD at 1:54:57. The only Texans to enter the rally rounded out the top five: father and daughter James and Renee Cook in another RX-7 at 2:03:29. A first time rally team from Birmingham, AL, "Two Bald Guys Racing" Bill Patridge and Rusty Megois, showed their desert racing experience in a Ford Ranger pickup placing sixth at 2:03:41. Lester Ewing and David Cole in a Saab Sonett were the ninth place team at 2:28:31 and were the final finishers. Scott Justus and Mike McAdoo from Arkansas ran consistent sixth and seventh overall times until the engine on the RX-7 overheated, I spraying sparks from under the hood. They wisely decided to pack the car up with two stages yet to run. A huge thank you is owed to the Burtis clan: when the Turbo Attack Rabbit died they pitched in to help the rally where needed, pulling the fast sweep vehicle out of a ditch (the only vehicle to get stuck). Rick jumped in to co-drive the course opening car, and Bob and Susan took the score cards to the motel and set about scoring the event.

Even Mercedes gets into the Paris-Dakar through privateers. This 500 GE or something similar is coming to the US soon and will be built here too. Fontenay and Musmurra are ready to race in this Mitsubishi Pajero, which in street form is similar to the rig called Montero and sold here through Dodge dealers.

Here a Nissan Terrano takes off the line, heading into the long journey. was everywhere, and after 38 cars • passed the stage was completely stopped, but meanwhile Lartigue had taken the lead he was never to lose. After the third stage in Spain the weather improved, but Lar-tigue's teammate Hubert Auriol had fallen back because of a five-minute road penalty, leaving Mit-subishis 2nd (Saby), 3rd (Web-er), 4th (Fontenay) and 5th (Shinozuka). On the first stage in Africa, Saby had front axle problems and fastest time of the day brought Auriol · up to second, but on the next stage he had two flats, and fell back to fifth again. Shi-no z uka was now second, a quarter-hour behind the leader. By January 3rd the rally reached Mauritania. New rules this year meant that cars restarted each day in the order of performance of the day before, not traditionally in the overall classification. This meant that Saby, although a long way behind overall, could run along with his teammates each day and adopt the role of fast service for his Mitsubishi teammates. On arriving in Dakar, Lartigue was 56 minutes in front of Shi-nozuka and whereas Saby had helped Shinozuka restart after he stopped with an electrical fault, the Frenchman could not assist when Weber had engine troubles and the German lost a lot of time. A two-day marathon section started the second part of the event. On the first day Mitsubishi lost Weber, who, running behind back markers because of his delay the~previous stage, rolled badly in dust and was withdrawn. Auriol rose to second place when Shinozuka took a longer route hoping to avoid the worst condi-tions. On the second day naviga-tion took a major role, long sec-tions continued and serious organisational problems arose. On the final section in Mauri-tania the first 20 cars and five · trucks survived soft sand and reached the main dunes, but because of the difficulty exper-ienced the other cars were stopped at a mid point passage check and sent back to the next overnight rest halt. The main team Mitsubishi drivers con-tinued through the stage, driving 30 hours non-stop and were pro-claimed the only crews to follow the official route. The organisers firstly greeted the drivers as heros, then announced not only had the section been cancelled, but also the next day's stage would begin on schedule. This was unaccepta-ble to the Mitsubishi team. "Hav-ing to restart immediately meant the drivers would have been on the road for more than 60 hours. We cannot allow our cars and drivers to continue, for their own Dusty Times safety." Interest in the event came to an abrupt end.

Boyes was soon out after breaking front shock bolts. Johnson wasn't even that lucky as the misfire contin-ued and he failed to get off the grid. Soon after, Kel Bryant rolled his Class 2, while the Baja of Dowsett pulled out after a rock went through the sump. No such -problems for Wells as he posted the quickest opening lap over Brown, Robinson, Bennett, Mark Burrows, and Neill Morrison. Baxter's Patrol was carving up the field and moved from 30th to 21st. Owers' race ended the next lap when he hit a rock big enough to stop a local tank!

Despite the slipping clutch, the T yrepower car of Robinson was now the leader. Only six minutes covered the Top Ten, and following Robinson they were: Brown, Bennett, Burrows, in Class 7 Siviour led Zacka's Rodeo and in Class 8 Baxter led Hadlow. Behind McMillan in Class 9 was Stephen Hilton. The next lap though spelled the end for many.

Whitbread's Mitsubishi 4x4 had a flat tire dropping him down the Class 7 list. Up front, Brown picked .up the pace and took back the lead position over Robinson and Wells who was also on a cha_rge. The big mover was McMillan who jumped from 10th to 4th as they reached the half way ·mark. His quest was helped by Bennett getting a flat tire and Burrows breaking a shock. Wells then pitted to replace a broken fan belt frustrating his efforts even more.

It was a two lap run to the finish and McMillan was confident of holding his position and was hoping Burrows and Wells would strike trouble allowing him to take the overall '93 champion-ship. Seven of eight laps down and McMillan now held a 4 minute lead over Brown and Holt. But while all the attention was on the leaders, it was obvious the organisers had fouled up further back in the pack.

This was the fifth year for off-road racing at Mason and the crowds were really starting to turn out for this popular series. The weather was bad with over 2.2 inches of rain on Saturday & Sunday. Each class was scheduled to race two heats on Saturday and a feature on Sunday. However, heavy rain started after the first round of heat races and forced a cancellation of the second round. In this series everyone gets to run in the features with no additional entry fee! The rain put a damper on the , swap meet vendors who had selected outdoor spaces. The indoor space became even more popular. Even the giant Mountain Dew blimp was moved inside. Class 11 was a real mudfest as the track was wet from two days of rain. However, the sun was shining as the race started promptly at 1 :00 p.m. The gua-ranteed first place purse for the race was $1,000 (5 car min-imum). H.K. Smith (Moose) was the winner with Dan Baudoux fin-ishing second and Herman Ber-n um third and Eric McLaren fourth. First and second place finishers in the buggy features are allowed to remove their restrictor plates and move up to the next buggy feature. This format has proved very popular over the last 5 years that the Michigan Off-Road Championships has run. The Limited feature {1-2-1600) was another guaranteed $1,000 to win. This time Dan Baudoux was the dominant factor on his way to his richest payday ever in racing. Dan drove his two seat Mirage to first place . with Baron LeBlanc coming in second, third place was Gene Clausson and fourth was Brian Peterson with Dennis Aiken of Georgia finishing fifth. Dennis came to Michigan to race the speed week of Off-Road racing when 5 races are held in 13 days. Class 10 (1650 air cooled) is a popular class in Michigan. This was another $1,000 win for Dan Baudoux in his 2-1600 car, second place was taken by H.K. Smith in a Class 11 car! Third place went to Jack Haenlein with Robert Oldfield in for fourth. Water cooled 1650 cars run in Class 9 which competes with Class 1 & 2 in the unlimited fea-ture. This was another $1,000 payoff for Dan Baudoux in his Class 9 Rabbit powered Mirage with Baron LaBlanc coming in second in a 1-1600 car! Third place went to Greg Ward with a Rabbit powered car and fourth place was Bob Wardell. Heavy metal was a career high payday also for Mike Savage of Williamsburg, Michigan driving his Class 3 Jeep. It was obvious that the SODA drivers did not hear about this race as only 5 trucks started for the $2000 first place purse. Mike led most of the race with Chad Schluter a close second in his Ford. Chad missed a jump and was penalized a lap which put him in 5th place and gave second place to Nyle Weber (The Nylator) and a record pay-day for him too. Third place went to Cheryl Walton in another Jeep. Cheryl was the 1992 & 1993 Points Series Champion for the Michigan Off-Road Champion-ships. Ric Tischbourne finished in fourth place after a front stretch tangle which had all the fans on their feet. Quad A TV races are a popular part of the show in Michigan and the 250 pro class ( Quad # 1 ) was another $ 1000 payoff for peren-nial winner Steve Borek riding a Honda for Mickey Ballance from Jackson, Michigan. Second place went to Roy Banister with Robert Stier a close third. Pat Rogers was scored fourth and C.J. Stewart was fifth. The open pro A TV ( Quad #4) also offered $ 1000 for first place but only 4 machines pulled to the starting line for this feature. Once again Steve Borek won first with his 250 Honda· and Pat Rogers in second and Rob Stier in third with Dave Gloden a DNF. Pilots are a popular and grow-ing class in Michigan. The 350cc Modified Pilot class paid a first place purse of $500 to Phil Doyle with Holgeir Oksnevad finishing second with Ken Nelson third and David Collins fourth. The 400cc SS Pilot class was dominated by Richard Dilley with Roger Olm-stead in second and Dennis Maiden finishing third. 400cc Modified pilots raced for a $500 first place purse which was awarded to Phil Doyle with Hol-geir Oksnevad in second place. Third went to Ken Nelson with David Collins in fourth. The ever popular swimsuit con-test was a big hit with $250 at stake. 10 lovely young ladies entered and were judged by the crowd. Abbie Stecker was the winner and helped give out some of the giant trophies. The Bombers were a great wind-up to an exciting event. Thes1· stock bodied cars (Good Old Boys) raced for a $500 first place purse. The lead changed three times on the last lap and the winner was not decided until the last turn. Kevin Zalma was given the Championship trophy and the $500 check for his efforts in the Mud. The spectators loved every second of it.

By John Elkin California Rally Series Awards Banquet carrot dangling at the end of a stick to hold in front of Lon to help him go faster, a low dollar in-car camera consisting of a disposable Kodak camera duct taped to a helmet. After giving away the speed secrets of the B&D Automotive team John was joined by John Moore for a special award for Dan Hook. Both John's navigated for Dan this year, a year marred by many flat tires .. , 18 to be exact. So for heroic tire changing efforts a tire iron was gold anodized and mounted on a plaque and hereby named the "Dan Hook Memorial Tire Iron & Navigator Adjust-ment Tool". lough & Scott Webb Co-master of Ceremonies Ray Hocker then surprised many by instituting a new award honoring his old friend and navigator, Bill Moore. Bill, for those of new, was a dedicated rally navigator, rally organizer, CRS Director and a founding membe of the CRS. His loss a few years ago was, and still is, deeply felt by many today. Ray wanted to reward someone who he felt typified Bill's attitude and much to yours truly's surprjse, the award was given to John Elkin, me. I hope this award is continued whenever someone meets the stiff criteria set by the life Bill Moore led for if that happens then with people such as these, and those who receive a Zimmerman Award then PRO Rally in California will always be strong and the class of the divisional system in the United States. There was not a rally car in sight, no sweet smell of race gas coming from a fine tuned race engine's exhaust and not a scrap. of Nomex to be seen; yet 102 rally competitors gathered in one place. It was the 1993 California Rally Series Awards Banquet. Organized this year by CRS Director Lynette Allison, she put together the largest attended banquet in the 20 year history of the CRS. Held in Fullerton at the Old Spaghetti Factory, rallyists were treated to delicious Italian cuisine and when all the food was gone the fun really started. Our annual awards are very di verse in the CRS, ranging from remembering competitors that have long passed on to the humorous and some comedy skits put together by competitors. The night started on a high note with the annual Cap'n Crunch Award, this is given to the team that best tells the story about their rollover or crash in the 1993 season. Odds on favorite for this was the team of Mitch McCullough/Scott Webb for their double rollover year both at Fenceline Ill and Prescott Forest but the applause meter surprisingly was pegged in the red by the story of Bob Scott/Chris Smith who at Prescott rolled the Toyota after hitting a boulder. Bob is a rookie driver and we are sure this is not the award he hoped for in his first year. Mike and Paula Gibeault, our divisional co-stewards and at large givers to the sport put together a comedy skit involving candy bar sponsorships and racers who deserved them. Case in point, for Mitch McCullough's efforts in his two rollovers this year he got a CRUCH bar, Lon Peterson and Bill Gutzman who caught fire at Rim in stage one were presented with a bag of RED HOTS. There were many such presentations of candy to competitors but the crowd favorite, at least for the ladies was a contest for the BIG HUNK BAR by previously selected panel of single, eligible ladies. The big winner was Terry Stonecipher who beat out the likes of Todd Bawden, Chad Di Marco and Lon Peterson. Our guest speaker this year was Mitsubishi Motorsports manager Dave Wolin who gave teams tips on getting, then building spon-sorships. Wolin fielded a pair of Eclipse's this year and garnered the CRS Stock Class Champion-ship and a second place in the national Production Class. He must know what he is talking about with his long and impres-sive list of associate sponsors, not to mention the charities he has helped along the way. Being a technical inspector is a somewhat thankless job, it requires one to donate a large part of his pre-race time to helping the organizer of a rally. Both Ron Wood and Dan Hook have worked hard this year and with Hook getting his full national tech license Wood may be able to take it easy so to that end the collective of the CRS gave Ron Wood his own folding stool and Dan Hook an official tech hat complete with flip down sunglasses built in. Thanks guys! The most prestigious, long standing awards one can receive in the CRS is the Zimmerman Award. It is presented by Karin Zimmerman-DiMarco in honor of her father; Dr. Kenneth Zimmerman. This was an extra-ordinary man who quietly and many times anonymously made sure money found its way to rally teams in need or organizers. The stories are numerous and after his passing in 1982 in a plane crash that also took his wife, this award was established to honor those who quietly and without much recognition donate much of themselves and their time to the sport. This year Chad and Karin pleased everyone with a most popular choice in picking a couple that for more years than they will ever admit have been active, helping teams young and old. Bill and Kay Gutzmann were re-warded with the 1993 Zimmer-man Award. Normally the award is a plaque that hangs in the DiMarco household, winners names inscribed on it from years past. This year a beautiful framed · certificate was awarded, not only to Bill and Kay, but to all the past winners since 1982 so now all have something to remember the The presentation of the Galal Souki Cup was next. This is given yearly to the stock class driver who best preps his car, keeps it dean and demonstrates sports-manship just as Galal did before his life was taken in a transit by a drunk driver. This year's winner, and deservedly so is Dennis Chizma who's immaculate VW Rabbit is everything the award stands for. , honor bestowed on them the year they won. Dusty Times The past winners are well worth repeating, and remembering here: 1982 -Tim Fountaine & Frank Jacobs 1983 - Ken Adams 1984 - Roger Allison 1985 -Mike Gibeault 1986 -Clint Heuring 1987 - Lynette Allison 1989 - Nancy Peterson & Sheryl Love 1990 - Michael O'Sullivan 1991 -John Elkin 1992 -Sam Moore Interesting to note that most of the names on this list are still out there helping rallying even today, showing the wisdom of their being chosen any number of years ago. Now in its second year the Rookie of the Year award was quite easy to call in 1993 as Mitch McCullough/Scott Webb took the 4WD Open Class Champion-ship in their first year. The pair have been on a real roller coaster ride this year as explained early but they finished the year well with two class wins, one overall win and a second place. And next year? It was time for some comedy again and John Elkin provided some comedy relief with his giving away of Lon Peterson's speed secrets, using homemade props. It was a very visual gag and some of the props included a The evening finished with the awarding the Southern Pacific Division Drivers Trophy which this year was given to Todd Bawden who in his rookie year also garnered the SCCA National GT Class title. Then it was on to the class awards that honors the top drivers and navigators in each of the three CRS classes. Photo-trophies were given to the first five places in class. The big winners were: StockClass -TonyShumaker& Larry Scott 2WD Open -Ron Wood & Kelly Walsh 4WD Open -Mitch McCul-The evening ended about 11 :00 and teams shuffled out of the Old Spaghetti Factory and drove home to prepare their cars, plan their year and make next year's banquet something to really celebrate with a great 1994 full of competition. The final award not handed out at the banquet is a big thank you to Jean Calvin and Dusty Times for their support of the California Rally Series and the sport in general.

The Valley Off Road Racing Association's 1993 Awards Banquet and Business Meeting was held November 20th at the Peppermill Hotel and Casino in Reno, Nevada. The Business Meeting which was at 1 :00 PM drew quite a crowd with standing room only by its start. The issues which were discussed were as follows: Ed reviewed 1993 rules which were either not followed or argued: Checkpoints: it was agreed that a checkpoint captain can hold a racer for unsafe speed or conduct. In conjunction with this the racer will be the one who pays if their pit personnel are out of line. One of the main arguments about checkpoints was consistency when it came to either stopping or letting a racer roll through a checkpoint. After a heated discussion the concession was that it is up to the discretion of the checkpoint personnel to make a racer stop completely or not. The explanation was if there are two racers coming into a checkpoint at ~li•J~llr'ill!llilli,~i!Ul,•'ll•Jl1i,iiNl.iJI We would like to thank and congratulate all these FAT-powered, 1993 Class points champions: MTEG Super 1600 Champion .......................

A New Short Course race will be added, VORRA's Fall Spectacul-ar held October 1-2, moving the Championship race back to October 29-30. There are also changes brewing in the Desert. The Labor Day race which is usu-ally the Yerington 250 will now be a point to point to point race, con-fused? I'll explain; the event will run from Yerington to Fallon and back. The plan is to have a 125 mile straight run to Fallon, with a 4 hour layover to sweep the course, ·then the field will line up the way they finished the first leg · and back to Yerington tl1'Y will go. Needless to say this Idea caused quite a stir with racers and crews. I guess we will have to see how this turns out. As Ed put it, "They have run most of the track already!" No more details were available. I'll keep you informed as I get info about this new event. The first race for 1994 will be March 19-20.

Ed's Better Half, Jenny Robinson, the heart of VORRA, had to do a little bit of reorganizing as the night went on. Ed somehow completely mixed up his cards. But as usual Jenny straightened it out with a smile. ~ Class 2 points went to Clayton Scudder and Curtis Clark.

Ken's sponsors are Humbug Automotive and Terrils Machine Shop among others. What I remember most about when Ken headed up to accept his awards was a bugle being blown from his table. Third place in the Overall Series went to Larry Folsom. Some of Larry's sponsors are Southwest Builders and Mom. Larry declared that he will retire his role as the VORRA crash dummy in Class 1,2,1600. Class 4 had brutal year only drawinj a few competitors to each event, nothing like they would like.

Second in the Desert and third Overall went to the team of Ryan O 'Callaghan and Troy Robinson. The team's main sponsors are Cargo Web, Mobile Equipment Repair, and House of Signs.

Juarez International De Automovilismo (J.l.D.A.), in cooperation with the Secretary of J:ourism for the City of Juarez, helped organize the international event lending local officials and law enforcement. The course was carefully mapped out to loop around the city down south, 50 miles to Samalayuca, then back around to finish in the center of the town. The race began in the center of town near the Chamizal Park. The park is historical for large soccer games, carnivals and now, a new permanent motocross track. The track held time trials for starting positions giving record crowds from both countries a close look at the- vehicles in action. The roaring engines and crashing skidplates only wetted the crowd's appetite for more. Second fastest qualifier was Carlos Enriquez in the former 7S Mazda now power by a 500 hp V-8 Chevy thanks to the 4 Wheel Drive Center of El Paso. Despite down time with -a broken steering box, Carlos and Sebastian San-tiesteban finished second in the race.

Carlos held firm and got closer to Alex at the half way mark of the course. The two held close racing up to 80 miles an hour on the rugged Mexico desert terrain. But the Mazda ran into compli- · cations on a dry wash section near the Rio Grande when the steering box was sheared completely off. Alex's " Servicio Martin" went on to a trouble free victory. Meanwhile, the 4-wheel center chase crew headed by Forrest Ely quickly replaced the steering box with a spare that was mounted on the truck in around twenty minutes allowing for the truck to continue and complete the race in second place. Only two cars passed while the truck was down, but definitely not out. The 3rd place car was a Class 1 1600 VW, and the 4th place car was a Class 8 Ford. After the break, Sebastian took the wheel of the Chevy powered Mazda with less aggression, but more endurance and a lighter, smarter right foot. Sebastian finished the remaining 40 miles of the race along side the Rio Grande where most of the top speeds were reached. Juarez police recorded top speeds of both the "Servicio Martin", and the Mazda at 115 mph and 123 mph, respectively. Alex crossed the finish line with timeof3 hours45 minutes at an average speed of 40 mph. Sebastian and Carlos crossed 25 minutes later for second place in Class 1, second overall. Arturo Lujan and Jesus Rosales took first in the 1600 class and sixth overall. At least three more events are in the works for 1994 for the historical border cities of El Paso, Texas and Juarez, Mexico. J.l.D.A. encourages for larger turnouts from the U .S.A. with continued support from border officials. Dusty Times

.~;,, .. -~- " . Good looks, lots of cargo capacity, only enhance the overall capabilities of the Nissan. (Note: Unfortunately, the earthquake consumed the Dusty Times pictures of the Nissan 4x4 so we have had to substitute factory photos on a rush basis.) The interior is both good looking and functional. Everything is within easy reach of the driver and falls easily to the eye. Along with tfle good looks comes a powerplant of reknown; V6, fuel injected and over 150 horsepower to speed you on your way. 1993 NISSAN KING CAB 4x4 Hi Yo Silver By John B. Calvin The Nissan 4x4 King Cab is as good. looking as ever and, as is expected, performs like the off road warrior you are used to. It arrived in Sea Foam Silver, a most beautiful color and it really looked good on the clean lines of the 1993 Nissan King Cab 4x4. We were on our way to the SNORE 250 race in Las Vegas and the Nissan was the perfect compliment for the journey up there and a wee bit of off roading thrown in. The big black things that connect the truck to the road were Firestone Radial ATX 31x10 50R15 LT M&S and were stiff as hell until we lowered the air pressure a bit and then the ride became enjoyable on the road. The tires are great off the road and they are fairly quiet on the road, and coupled with the trick alloy wheels they make a good looking package as well as giving you all the strength you could possibly need. Stopping power is supplied by power. assisted front disc brakes with rear drums doing their share. An Anti-lock braking system on the rear wheels adds to your feeling of security if and when the panic stop occurs. A super smooth five speed gearbox gives you all sorts of versatility and the four wheel drive selector lever also works with ease and there is an indicator light on the dash that alerts you to the fact that you are in four wheel drive. Power is supplied by the V6 overhead cam three liter engine, complete with sequential multi point fuel injection and 153 horses to get you wherever you Dusty Times want to go. The engine has plenty of power, is fairly quiet and has a nice power range. The instrument cluster is ·lovely, just the basics and all in the right place for your eyes to fall on. Left of center is an 8000 rpm tachometer with a redline at6000 and a digital clock located in the bottom left of the tach. Right of center is the speedometer with two, count 'em folks, two resettable odometers. Central in the instrument cluster is the fuel gauge and just below is the temperature gauge. Just to the left of the tachometer are all the various lights and whistles to inform you of unfastened seat belts, low oil pressure, etc. Just beneath the dash, reading from left to right are the controls for the wonderful electric outside mirrors, the brightness control for the instrument lights, the rocker switch for the cruise control and way to the right is an interlock switch which allows you to bypass the clutch-must-be-depressed-before-you-can-start-the-engine sequence. All this just in case you stall the engine somewhere in the outback on something really steep, this switch allows you to turn it on and start the engine without depressing the clutch pedal. 'Nuf on that subject. Mounted on the driver's door are the electric window controls and the electric door locks and I again stress, never buy any truck without those controls. They are the handiest things in the world to have. In the center of the dash are the air conditioning controls, heat controls, etc and the fan controls. As in most trucks, the passenger compartment is fairly small and you can easily freeze yourself or cook yourself with ease. For-tunately, a happy medium is easily found and you are assured of driving anywhere with absolute temperature control. Still in the center, just below the heat/ air controls is a cigarette · lighter and ash tray, and beneath that is the AM/FM stereo sound system with tape cassette and four speakers, and there is plenty of power to blow you right out the window. Wait, there's more, just below the AM/FM is a compact disc player and although we only used the tape cassette for a bit we did not use the CD player, but we 1 must assume it is of the same high quality as the rest of the sound system. : The five speed transmission gear shift lever is mounted centrally on the floor and it shifts / effortless! y as does the 4 WD shift lever located immediately to the left. Just behind the gear shift lever is a small tray, the emergency brake and a fairly small central console. Finishing off the amenities, i there is a tilt steering wheel with ' the turn signals, cruise control settings and the headlights located , on the left stalk of the steering column while the wipers with March 1994 delay and washing sequence are on the right stalk. A sun roof with sun shade was part of the package, a sliding rear window was also installed and the rear side opera windows are a wonderful con-venience. Cloth covered bucket seats were super comfortable with manual adjustments in just about every direction you can imagine. We did a bit of adjusting when we picked up the Nissan King Cab and were comfortable on and off the road. Rear jump seats fold out of the side walls and although they don't look very comfortable they are not too bad to sit on. I wouldn't recommend ,them for long trips, although for kids· they would probably be fine. Outside we have a double wall cargo bed which was covered with a bedliner, another great feature which certainly helps to protect your paint when you are schlep-ping stuff around back there. There are cargo anchors installed in all four corners for your convenience and there are four pop-up cargo hooks on top of the side walls of the bed. Almost everything you can think of has been thought of and is there for you to use. A limited slip differential is part of the package, very handy in a lot of circumstances. Three skid plates underneath protect the vital organs when you venture off the road into the boonies and there is a full size spare tire mounted underneath the bed. Initially the ride on the Nissan King Cab was a back breaker, stiff as could be. We attribute a lot of this to the vehicle being brand new and all the shocks and springs not being broken in yet. We did drop the tire pressure quite a bit and that really helped a lot. You need to get a wee bit of a bulge in the Firestone sidewalls and you can really feel the difference in the ride. It improved dramatically on the road but off the road we could not notice much difference. Off the road the ride was sort of harsh, but that could be our doing as we were moving quite slowly, trying to avoid the heavy brush which tends to scratch the hell out of the paint. A twenty-one gallon fuel tank and an average of eighteen miles per gallon gives you a cruising range of nearly four hundred miles which is adequate for most folks. On the road the Nissan King Cab cruised with ease, speed is no problem and even in fifth gear on a good upgrade there was no problem maintaining speed and no downshifting necessary. We put nearly a thousand miles on the King Cab and enjoyed it all. It has looks, performance, versatility, comfort, all it needs is you. .-.... -a, WRIGHT PLACE~. DROPPED .

-The Straight Poop Fom The Big Wafuoo NEW YEAR'S 200 -The Club ran seven cars at this La Rana Barstow race, with three of them finishing. Jim Tucker borrowed a motor from Koch for his Class 10 car and then ran it hard enough to earn an impressive second in class and third overall. Good run Jim! Mike Duenas teamed up with Steve LuPort in Da-penis' 1-2 1600 car for a sixth place finish. Details of their run were scarce because apparently Mike invited all his in-laws out to the race and then set up his own 'Checker Main', far away from his Brother Checkers. Hey Mikey what's the deal, ya ashamed of us? BJ Bates returned to his old Class 9 car this race as a co-driver with the non-Checker he sold it to. In this 26 car class BJ had some fun wheel to wheel racing with Jimmy Hook for a while, with a number of obscene gestures reportedly being exchanged between cars. After some minor problems, Minor Bates ended up with a sixth place finish. Our DNFs were as follows: · Danny Reider broke his front suspension early in the race on his 5 car, patched it, but then ran out of time for a DNF. Prospective member Jimmy Hook finally got his Challenger car out to a Club event, and made a good impres-sion with it until a bad tranny put, him on the side. The exciting team of 'Fred Nelson and his Flying Kid' roared off into the Barstow dust with obviously only God and good sense on their side. But, somewhere on the first lap good sense must have bailed, as junior tried to imbed the Nelson family's stock Ford truck into the other side of ii big Class 8 type jump! Although ·lots of dirt was displaced on impact, this DNF produced no fire. State-of-Intents Frank & Sean Krepsz (Butow's instant Checkers) both pledged to donate their first born dauiiiters to the Club raffle if they could get some pit support for this race, and also promising to do whatever else it takes in the future to pay the Club back for bending our rules a bit for their benefit. The members agreed, and then the Krepszs ( pronounced like in Maynard G.) promptly got their monies worth as their 1-2-1600 car seemed to come completely apart on their first lap. The Checker Pits bolted and welded things back on almost as fast as they fell off, but these two Checker wanna bes finally ran out of time and parked it after three laps. These Krepsz brothers are really monster dudes, just think if we teamed them up with Growler Bates, the Checkers could very well have a legitimate 3-man tag team entry for '94 W restlemania! BITS & PIECES * Both Seeley and the Cooks further cashed in on their respective '93 Score Points Championships with $2000 cash awards each from KC HiLites in recognition of their excellence in the sport of Off Road Racing. A nice touch from KC, off road racings winningest lights. Speaking of the Cooks, the Brothers are taking a break in '94 and will park their championship 5-1600 car for a while. * All race reports and related BS that is written in this column appears in the order that it happened. * A special thanks to the Dusty Times for another year of solid support for this column. Very impressive actions for a bunch of non-Checkers! Round Brown got a bunch of stuff stolen out of his locked vehicle during a recent W ednes-d a y night meeting. A good Wahzoo rule of thumb her,e would probably be: "Don't leave anything in your rig that either a homeless dude or illegal immi-grant could use!" Jim Tucker, a Checker retread, was recently voted in again as a full and active Checker member. Welcome back Brother Tucker! Joe Giffin chose the biggest meeting of the year to face the dreaded marble box for his full membership vote, but sailed thru with no problem. Giffin is a tranny man out of Anaheim with the ugliest legs in the Club. Welcome aboard Joe! PARKER 400 -This Parker will probably always be remem-bered as the Earthquake Race, as about 150 cars charged off into the Arizona desert from the shores of the Colorado River. Despite the fact that a major earthquake had just shook Checkerville, the Club solidly supported our six Checker cars and we had five finishers, most of them in the money. This summer-like race week-end started out with 13 Trophy Trucks tearing up half the course during their Thursday sprint race. The only Checker in this Manufacturers Class was Kelley, who picked up a third. Good run Steve. Saturday's race saw many of the Trophy Trucks stick around, removing their fenders, and then entering as 'open wheel' unlimited cars. But they got little respect, as the first thru fifth overall spots went to unlimited buggies. Also, Uncle Max was again acting as the colorman for the local 1380 AM radio station, and once again conducted in depth interviews with all our Checker racers at the starting line. Atta Boy Max! Davis pulled a seat out of his 2-seat 1600 buggy and ran this race as a single seater. As expected Kevin ran with the leaders during . the day and into the night. But on the final lap his crew radioed him: CUSTOM RACE CAR WIRING MOBILE SERVICE TO YOUR HOME OR TO YOUR CHASSIS BUILDER SERVING ALL OF LOS ANGELES AND ORANGE COUNTIES CALL TODAY FOR INFORMATION & PRICING!

What other explana-tion could there be for Seeley apparently giving all his com-petitors an early advantage by takin' the longer section for the bikes & Quads on his first lap? After that, he actually ran a relatively trouble free race for George, bringing his unlimited Bug home in fourth place. The Harmans reportedly had very little trouble, but were only able to get up to the sixth place spot in the big Class 10 race. Stuart Chase had another good run, but as in the 1000, he suffered just enough little problems that it pushed him back from the lead and into the eighth spot, and 17th overall. Crowley and Hibbard hauled Dennis' 1-2-1600 car up to Parker, but put it back on the trailer shortly before the start of the race when they were unable to come to an agreement with Score's Bureau of Weights & Measures on the weight of their single seater. But, they both stayed on for the race, hanging around Checker Main, pittin' and bitchin'. AND FINALLY, let me tell ya the tale of 'The Birdman'. This story begins shortly after the Ridgecrest Rocket has dropped into the Osbourne Wash nearing the end of his second lap. Koch is really cookin', so much so that he blows a turn, hits an embank-ment, flies up over it and smacks into a big tree, knocking it part way over. Ouch! At this point Tom's Class 10 car is sitting at about a 45 degree angle, front wheels up in the now leaning tree and rear bumper down in the dirt. Naturally the first thing Koch does is call for help on the Checker channel. "Hey man, I'm stuck in the wash". No shit Tom! Now at this point he gave no mention whatsoever that his rescue crew might want to consider bringing some kind of a saw, or at least a beaver (the 4 · legged variety). But things were gonna get a lot worse for our hero before help arrived. As Tom stood off to the side surveying his dilemma, an unlimited buggy came roaring around the corner and made the same mistake. But, instead of hittin' the tree ... he smashed right into Tom's Raceco, driving it farther up into the tree! As the other car limped away, Koch's mangled car was now hanging nearly vertical, with it's rear bumper over 3 foot off the ground. I think it was somewhere around here that our hero first FOR SALE: '90 Raceco 2-seat 1600. "Brand new". Never raced! Seckatz/ Axtell 1600cc eng. Raceco trans.
