There were Ivan Stewart, Mark McMillin, Steve Sourapas, Perry McNeil, Steve Lawrence, Brian Ewalt and a handful of other top off-road racers cavort-ing in the desert. What made it special was the presence of 150 youths from Chula Vista and the Imperial Val-ley. The event was the second an-nual Day in the Desert spon-sored by the Chula Vista Police Department's Police Athletic League. The idea is simple: Bring city kids to the desert and introduce them to an environment many of theQl didn't know existed. Oh yes, and have them meet some people who are at the top of their game and, excuse the pun, go along for the ride. BILL CENTER ------·· MOTORSPORl'S l . The big draw was the chance for the youths to t:J<e one or two 10-minute rides across the desert as co-pilot for a top driver in a variety of buggies and desert trucks. But there was much more, according to Chula '/-ista police chief Richar(I P. Emerson. "Out here today, we have a lot of kids facing problems and tough decisions meeting men who are both very successful and enjoying life," said Emerson. "The rides are secondary in my mind to the interaction." In reality, the rides filled little of the day. But the day \vasfull. Off-road superstar Stewart signed posters with a message about the importance of reading and delivered a short talk about the pursuit of an education. Various agencies-the Navy, the Border Patrol, the Bureau of Land Management, the California Highway Patrol and two police departments -had informational displays. And a group of San Diego firms volunteered lunch, support personnel and supplies. But much of the afternoon was spent on a one-t<Hme basis. Kids, buggies and drivers. "I don't know if they're faster or louder," said Eduar-do, 12, who was getting his first look at a desert buggy. "When they said what we were going to be doing, I didn't understand because I had never done this before. It was fun. I just don't know why the buggies don't fall apart." It was as much fun for the participating drivers. March 1997 After returning from a run with a young boy, McMil-lin was shaking his head. "I'm flying down the back section of whoops and I look over to make sure the boy is OK," said the five-time overall winner of the Baja 1000. "And the kid looks back over at me and says, 'Does this thing go any faster?' " "I don't know if this was better for the kids or the drivers," said Sourapas after countless runs in his four-passenger Dodge Ram pre-runner. Stewart knew. "We need more programs like this," said the off-road superstar, who has been involved in a nwnber of promo-tions during his quarter-century in the desert. "Person-to-person. One driver, one kid." One great day. And maybe more. Chief Emerson would like to see the program expand-ed next year to include other areas from the county. Maybe a day for Chula Vista, a day for El Cajon, a day for San Diego. All it takes is more drivers and buggies. There are more than enough available kids. Bringle, Smith, Wehe win The motorcycle team of Greg Bringle and Craig· Smith and Andrew Wehe's buggy claimed the major overall titles at last week's District 38 Dunaway Das& race at Plaster City. Bringle-Smith were first overall and first open pro In the motorcycle division. Jason Corfman and Steve: Rich were second overall and first in the 250cc class. l)ewey Belew and Bill McNeer were third overall and first vets. Grea Gibb• and Troy Phel,-were first in the ATV division, and Rob Archibald was first in Super~ lites. Although Wehe was first overall and first in Class 10 buggies, Chuck Hovey won the season title. Jim Grill's 1600cc Baja Bug was the fust car and Rodd Fantelli won the truck title. Mlsceffany ■ The Los Angeles Coliseum will be home to Super-crosses the next two Saturday nights.

Interview With Jim Clements By Jimmy Messick I recently had a talk with Jim Clements of Mojave Off Road Enthusiasts (MORE) which should supply some of the whys and whats of the new organi:ation out of Barstow, CA which will have already held their first race hy the time you read this. I asked him "How long have you heen an off road racer!" His reply says it all. "My first race wns in 1976, the Firecracker 250. I placed fourth. My first win wns in January of 197H. In my years of rncing I have raced C lasses I, IO, 5-1600, 1-2-1600, 9, I nnd the old C lass 9 1200cc. I have won four class championships with High Desert Racing, and three class championships with La Rana Desert Racing. I had 29 wins out of 71 races with only five DNFs." "Why did you start M .O .R.E.?" "Talking with many racers I could sec that they, like myself, were not satisfinl with what we had to choose from, as far as racing organi:ations in the area. One was hci ng hoycottl·d, another was too far away and the other was too expensive. And the rest of them were putting on ( to quote the Rig Wah:oo) "weak suck" races. So the hig question of 1996 was "where do we race?" "Also, in this case, the timing was right, as I had hccn giving much thought to retiring from my contracting husiness. I was ready for something new and exciting. I felt confident that I knew enough ahout off road racing and husiness management that I could put together a program that the racers THE would really appreciate. That has been my goal -to give the racers a dependable, well established racing organization that offers them more of what they want. This is how the name M.O.R .E. came to he." "How do you fed ahout the comments made hy the Big Wah:oo? And also comments from Lou Peralta?" "Some people arc just not receptive to chnnge -hut that is their prohlem. It is time for fresh new ideas geared more to the racers." "How does M .O .R .E. differ from the other rac e organ-i:atioris?" "In many ways, first of all, I am a racer and I feel I know what the racers want. I have set this program up with a most reason-able entry fee, while offering back the most unselfish and profitable payback of any race promoter ever." "We are offering a graduating payhack schedule ranging from $125.00 per car to $200.00 per car, depending on the total numher of entries. Which simply means the more the racers support us, the more we can give hack to them in terrific payhacks. For example -if we could draw the numher of cars that La Rana was drawing at its prime, we would he paying back $175 to$200 per car, every race. "We are also offering five cash bonuses for every race; four $500 hon uses depending on total number of cars in the race. The fifth bonus will be IO percent of f.111 -'WRIGHT 9420 Flinn Sprl..,. Ln. Pt·ACE El C.,,,, ~ 120i1 . .• I~~••· Page 8 the T-Shirt sales going to the overall winner at each race. These bonuses are added money back to the racers. Instead of putting it in my pocket I'm putting it in theirs. It is my way of giving our racers more!" "Another way we differ is in our Points Program. Not only will we offer the standard class points championship, we will also offer an overall points championship that will allow all the classes to have a chance to win overall, not just the classes with the most entries. Weat M .O.R.E. intend to recognize all our champions throughout the following year. Something else that is really new and different is the points system we have designed for the cluhs. The duh that earns the most points will he awarded cash pri:es and rccogni:ed as " Cluh of the Year" with full hragging rights." "And last hut not least we will he awarding two consolation pri:es to the first out of the money in two sekctt.·d dasses every race.'' "How has the response heen?" "It has heen great! I have spoken with. many people, new and old friends alike. who arc very excited ahout our program. They really like what we have to offer. One of our main efforts at this point, is to reach ALL the racers. So I would like to invite any interested racers who would like more information o r have any questions to please fed free to call me at (619) 253-4453 and I will be happy to get the information back to you A.S.A .P.O, March 1997 Trail Notes ••• RIDGEC~EST, CA -The Ridgecrest Pro Rally School experience will let you cxl:'enence the thrill of driving a stage at speed and the challenge of co-dnvmg a ~ro ral(y stage.

NEW SANCTION FOR EASTERN OFF ROAD RACERS -The Eastern Off Road Racing Association (E.O .R.R.A.) is currently being organi:cd. It is headed by long time off road racer Tom Delauder Sr. He has hl·cn racing since 1974 at various club tracks in W . VA, PA, and Ohio. There arc a lot of off road racers in the East, hut nobody is promoting the sport Delauder says. They all keep a low profile, run different rules, and race with fellow duh members, in some races not knowing that there arc other racers and events in their area. The E.O .R.R.A. plans to promote the sport through maga:incs and other sports media.

It was a fast race and cars that ran at Parker were in the line but some of them hadn't had enough prep time. It was high attrition for a SNORE race and they don't have another on the schedule until March 15. They had smoothed the course in the Nelson Hills some, and Jim Price did the first loop in less than 45 minutes. He came to grief on the last lap. Casey Jones driving a borrowed car because his wasn't Jone yet did very quick laps and not only won Class 10 hut he won ovcrall honors too. Robbie Guevara had class fast lap on the first one in Class 1-2-1600 and he won the class hy around three minutes. Flut right behind him on time was Bryan Freeman and he turned excellent times, and he is the teen age son of Kenny Freeman Jr. Moving down to Class 9, 14 strong at the start, sevcral fell out on the first loop. But it was a close race for the class honors finally going to Ryan Schank hy just a few seconds and Brian Ficgcr was second. We'll have a full report with photos next month.

On the fifth lap Wood started to tire, and was about nine seconds slower, while Wehe got word from his i}7 31: 17. But as his crew gathered at the ·finish line the minutes dragged out. He was a little late, then five minutes late, then IO. Folks rememhered the same race in '95 when his front end hroke within two miles of the finish after he'd led most of the way. Finally word came thathe'd run out of gas. Some friendly spectators gave him five gallons of pump gas, and he fired up and came on in, 20 minutes off his pace, hut in no danger of losing the Class IO victory. Hamlin, who had a couple more flats, and some Rueben Wood out in front in his Wood had taken over the overall new rear engined Type IV lead,andwaslOmintuesaheadof Wood charged hard through _ pits that he'd better hustle, and he powered A-armed Jimco, leading hy just a few seconds over Chuck Hovey in his Raceco.

That put Wehe into the overall lead, but Wood was still secure in his class lead. Richard-son continued to run second, with Hovey back up to third as everyone else had some kind of problem. At the end of that fifth lap Wood decided to give the car to Rick Geiser, who hadn't got his turn at the wheel in his Class 10 ride, and he went off into the last lap in front. But he never came back. The transmission gave up the ghost about three quarters of the way around the lap. Richard-son moved to the front and was feeling real pleased with the situation until he ran out of gas about a mile out from the finish. Once again, it was spectators to the rescue, and they dumped enough in his tank so he could get the finish, and the win, though he lost about 15 minutes. Hovey had salvaged a second place, and the class season points win, while the Whitmoyers brought the Ma:da home in third place. Jake andJeffSearle had the only Class 5 entry for this event, hut drove a very evenly paced race to finish all six laps. A whole gaggle of 1600 cars turned out for the season finale, and they had the hest race of the day, if not the year. At the end of the first lap it was Tom Watson in front in his Jimco, with just 21 seconds on Scott W ehster in his ORBS.

Running fifth it was Andy Estrada and Jeff Bennett in their Jimco, a minute further hack. By the end of the second lap there was a three way tie, with Wehster, Watson and Hendrick-son. And they were physically neck and neck on the course, entertaining the spectators as they fought for position. They seemed to never have more than one wheel on the ground at a time. Watson changed a coil when he stopped for a quick dump of fuel.

Robert Landry had his Jimco in the front 1600 group, who changed position constantly. He lost brakes and power steering, but finished third, sixth overall. Richard Burnworth had oil light woes in his Chenowth but he kept moving in Class 100 and he finished second in class and a fine ninth overall. Bob Short and Michael McClintock had no big troubles on the course and they ran their pace to third in Class 100, and they also finished 19th overall. 117" was still fourth with Todd McAllaster and Scott Plunkett now in fifth in their MECO. Hendrickson's time of 39:50 was the fast lap for this class. Through the fourth lap it was Hendrickson, then, neck and neck Rodney Wolfe (Webster's co-driver) and Watson, who was soloing, and now Watters' co-driver, Kevin Basore, was fourth, with Landry in fifth as Plunkett and McAllaster broke a couple of link pins. The fifth lap spelled doom for Hendrickson. An oil fitting gave "'..,_:t;;;..: '1-f,· ,,...,, up and all the oil spewed out of his motor. That left Wolfe, who hadn't pre-run, to do battle with Watson, who had, and they were at it hot and heavy. Watson had a minute on Wolfe and Webster, with Landry in third, and Basore, hating that stiff rear end, in fourth. Plunket and McAllaster were up and running again, but they were fifth and last. Everyone else had expired. Watson nosed out Wolfe and Webster by exactly two minutes to take the win. Neither car had any problems, all the drivers had a ::::::~ -«-. ~ ;;::;:~ blast. Landry, with no brakes and no power steering, finished third, followed in by Basore and Watters, and then McAllaster and Plunkett. Estrada and Bennett were the season champions. In Class 100 the first lap leader was Ricky Kern in his Kernco, in spite of a flat tire. He had the fast lap for the class, at 41: 15, and was a minute in front of Richard Burnworth in a Chenowth. In third it was Bob Short and Michael McClintock, in another Chenowth. At the end of the second lap it was the same order, though Kern now had six minutes on Burn-worth. And at the end of the third lap, when he'd had another flat, Kern had an 18 minute lead. Burnworth had an oil light that kept flickering, and he was understandably nervous about it and kept stopping to check. He was 25 minutes up on Short and McClintock. They ran in that order for the final three laps, except that Joey Kern took over for Ricky. Their lead was 22 minutes by the end of the fourth lap, but Burnworth had replaced a throttle spring. At the finish it was the Kern brothers, winning by 25 minutes. Burn-worth was second, and mighty lucky there were no more laps, because he discovered his front beam was badly cracked. Short and McClintock were third. In Class 9, Larry Kern, cousin to the Class 100 winners, took the early lead in his Kernco, with the class fast lap, at 47:40. He had over three minutes on Kevin Graves in his Jimco, who had about six minutes on Dave Dietrich in another Jimco. Kevin and Hal Graves took the Class 9 lead on the second lap, had a clean race and won the race and the season points title and also finished 14th overall. Dave Dietrich and Adam Pfankuch were second in Class 9, but it was a struggle. They broke a wheel on lap 5, and found the lights didn't work so they were led to the finish by another car. David Lytle and Victor Herrera had a good lead in Class 5-1600 until they ran out of gas on the last lap, but salvaged second place in class and 12th 0 /A, just 13 seconds behind the winner. ~BILSTEIN'S ~BUILDABLE SHOCKS 14" Rebuildable w/reservoir 12" Rebuildable w/reservoir 1 O" Rebuildable w/reservoir 1 O" Coil-over Shocks 8" Rebuildable w/reservoir 186.00 186.00 179.00 160.00 179.00 w/o reservoir 125.00 w/o reservoir 125.00 w/o reservoir 118.00 w/o reservoir 118.00 BILSTEIN 60 mm Xi,n,etyon,e .'>Cutt,c)wJ Seued 17" Rebuildable 9100 w/reservoir 519.00 14" Rebuildable 9100 w/reservoir 519.00 12" Rebuildable 9100 w/reservoir 519.00 10" Rebuildable 9100 w/reservoir 519.00 All 60 mm with 4 Bypass Tubes 989.00 VALVI#~ l(ITS • REBUILD l(ITS • SEAU • ROOS Page 14 MOGI AUTO TRANSAXLE SPECIALS: Winter's Shifters 210.00 011 ,,,,,,, 1.i,11 Ar1 ••• Bugpack, CNC, Deist, Fabtech, Fod-Fab,Saco, Jamar, King Shocks, Mechanix, MSO, PIAA, Suspensions Unlimited, Sway-a-Way, Fortin, UMP, VDO, VP Racing Fuel, Bilstein,Beard, Autofab, PCI Radios, F&L Fuel, Auto Meter, Mastercraft, NO FEAR, SPY Sunglasses, Fuel Safe Cells March 1997 fiberglass ~'i'J "UPGR~ NOW OPEN in Fallbrook 1 04-0 South Main Street Fallbrook, CA 92028 619-723-21 17 Phone 619-723-9938 Fax BajaRac«" Qua\it1 Used 'Parts: _. 7 Fan Shrouds 3 Distributors 7 16" Centerlines F-150 Auto Fah Kit 2 9" Summers Rearends 3 C-6 Mogi Trannys Doug Nash 5-Speed '90 and up Ran2er Lites/ Grill 4 '89-'92 Ran2er Grills CNC Pedal AssemblJ Spirit Shock Tower Set 4 6" CNC Billet Calipers 3 6" JFZ Calipers 12 Limit Straps 21 Bilstein Shocks 13 Fox Shocks 7 Cibie Oscar Li2hts 14 KC Li2hts 5 UMP Air Bous 9 Auto Meter Gau2es 1 PCI Road Master 2 PCI Intercoms Summers VW Disc Kit 16 Torsion Bars-VW 8 CV and Ca2es Over 2000 Gently Used Items In Stock. .. and we've only just begun!!!

Alan Barett endoed his Raceco before he had gone two miles and both he and the car were battered and bruised, but he was OK, the car was not and they were out of the race, As he started out onto his second lap Kern hit a hole, endoed his car and broke the nose cone of the transmission, He tried to continue, but the car wouldn't shift, and he was sidelined, When the rest of the group finished the second lap Graves had the lead, with 10 minutes on Dietrich, Jim Zabrowski and John Castillo had major clutch trouble in their Suspensions Unlimited car, and lost a full lap, Graves had a clean day and continued to lead, Dietrich put Adam Pfankuch in his car, and he maintained a good pace, and stayed firm in second place, Graves put his dad, Hal, in for the final two laps, and Hal had no problems, beyond finding the course very rough, Pfankuch however, wasn't having such a good time, He broke a wheel on the fifth lap, and lost some time, and then when it got dark on his last lap he found out that his lights weren't working right, The Graves team finished first, neat and clean, without even any dirt on the skid pan, to take the win, and clinch the Class 9 season points. Dietrich and Pfankuch, who had to be led in by another car for the last 15 miles or so ( it was a dark night}, were second, and none of the others finished the six laps, In Class 5-1600 the early lead went to Jim and Brian Grill who ticked off the fast lap for the class at 47:10, They had two minutes on Tony Steingraber, and he was two minutes and a little more in front of David Lytle and Victor Herrera who ran third after fixing a flat. In fourth it was John and Dave Gaddis. Steingraber moved into the lead on the second lap, and he had just a minute on the Grills, who ran two minutes in front of Lytle and Herrera. The Gaddis team was still fourth. At the end of the third lap it was still very close with Steingraber just a minute in front of Lytle and Herrera, and the Grills just a minute further back. The Gaddis team was having mechanical troubles and lost about 13 minutes, Steingraber fell out on the fourth lap and Lytle and Herrera moved to the front, with Grills six minutes behind them. Bobby and Byron Ross were third now, about 35 minutes off the pace, and none of the others were still running. Herrera and Lytle continued to lead through the fifth lap, with the Grills, who'd been without second gear since the second lap, holding second place. But on the final lap Herrera and Lytle ran out of gas in Coyote Wash, and lost 15 minutes. The Grills kept it moving forward to take the win, and Herrera and Lytle were second about 13 minutes later. The Grills won the season championship also. In the truck class the fast lap of Dusty Times It's tough to wreck your car just a few miles into the race, 45:01 was set by Steve and Tim the Lawrences second and Smith after the six p.m. witching hour, Lawrence in their Ford, and they and Felix still third.

Bar-stow /Lucerne racing series in '97. Our active drivers made it clear that they wanted the Club to sup-port the SCORE races, the Best in the Dez races up in Nevada, and MDR's new local series. From here on out, results of Checkers running in desert races not offi-cially supported by the Club will be listed in our new 'Cherry Pickers' section, if at all. Meetnig Changes -The Van Nuys Dugout was recently con-demned for having an unsafe roof, one that the Club has raised on many occasions, and the Check-ers have been temporarily holding our meetings over at the Lamp-lighter restaurant on Van Nuys Blvd. in Sherman Oaks. Sup-posed! y, once a new roof in installed on the />it, we will be returning to our regular hang out. Starting in February the Club will experiment with having our Wednesday night meetings on only the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month. If you haven't been receiving any Club newsletters detailing all these changes, your current address is probably out of date on the Club roster. If that's the case, call Reverend Roy @ 619-249-6710 and give your latest address and phone # to the nun that answers. M.D.R. Barstow -About 40 cars showed up for Mojave Desert Racing's first event. Not really anything to write home about, but considering the current situation and thar this was his first race, nor roo had either. In a 7 car class, brother Butow and Hand-some Billy had the 1-2-1600 class won. It was the last lap, the finish line was only a couple of miles away, and McCool was in the leader's dust with a 2 minute start-ing time advantage. Safe bet, huh? Not quite. Snap went a stub axle and Billy ground to a stop. Russ's buggy was quickly repaired, but they could only salvage a 3rd. ' Good show guys. Holliday and Robertson ran Steve's open buggy in one of M DR 's t~o open classes. (?) They beat the other car handily, but visited all the Checker pits in the ·process.The Krepzs Brothers ran their 1-2-1600 car and once again · pissed everybody off in the pits with their non stop babble on the Club's race frequency. These guys are way too big to beat up, but there is a move afoot to force 'em , to get their own channel to bull-shit on. When they broke early at this race, the pits were finally able to turn the volume back up on their radios. Ya know? You Krepzs just might be missin' out on a successful career in radio. Maybe as a talk show duo? ... hopefully in Blythe. MICHAEL GAUGHAN, probably the Club's richest Checker after Symonds, recently opened up a brand new Hotel/ -Casino in Vegas called 'The Orleans'. This impressive new Checker establishment is right near his familiar Gold Coast Hotel and will surely become another Club hang out. When ya stop in, just tell'em you're a .

I'm receiving them OK, but I'm still not set up to reply to you directly witho_ut March 1997 divulging my real identity. Please bear with me. CASEY FOLKS showed up as a Guest Speaker at our W ednes-da y night meeting prior to the Parker race and gave a very inter-esting talk. Being an old estab-lished desert bike racer, Folks talked a language that the Check-res likes. 'Best in the Dez' not only offers an alternative to SCORE, but his 3 race series in '97 will run entirely over little used roads and trails in Nevada's high deserts. Compared to some of the really torn up areas we're currently using, his courses sound kinda like Rally Racin', but without those sti~kin' stages. Look for 'Best in the Dez' to grow. PARKER 400 -On a beauti-ful Arizona weekend 144 vehicles took the green flag at Blue Water Marina for this 338 mile SCORE event. Of those, 91 entries completed the 3 laps. Before I get into how the Checkers faired, let the Wahzoo comment a bit on the mighty fall of those vaulted Trophy Trucks. This was the year that their fac-tory sponsor money left to go Super Truck racin' with NAS-CAR. Also dissappearing was their exclusive TV coverage and other special treatment by the promoter. This resulted in the remaining independent trophy truckers being demoted back into the real race with the rest of us. Although leaving the starting line first, the seven hi-dollar trucks entered in this race got very little respect from the buggy ranks. The winning truck got soundly beaten by 2 unlimited buggies, and the second place trophy truck got beat by a Challenger car. Hey, welcome back guys! George Seeley was Checkers' Driver of the Year of '96, and at this race he once again showed everybody why. Soloing the See-leyrnobile with Rosy riding shot-guy (Rosenstein not Tokyo), George won his class by over 16 minutes. It wasn't too long ago that Seeley was known more for emptying the pit boxes of oil and greasin' up the pitters with his constant c. v. repairs. But, George now spends a lot more time on the road than in the pits, and is now the guy to beat in Class 5. Con-gratulations to George Seeley, FIRST PLACE in Class 5. (His real name is George Seeley Jr., but there are no juniors in the Checkers). Robert Harman soloed his ten car to an impressive 2nd place fin; ish. Bullhorn had the lead during the last lap with his ft. heam/ ty/1e , car, but apparently got run down on the fast roads going in by an a-arm/ water /ntmJ1er Class 10 car. Jim Greenway, with a new Class 10 ride, had some down time early after being smashed into by a truck. The team ended up with a 5th in class. Good run guys! Sadly, 4 of our 7 Checker cars DNFed at this race. Our new Prez, Joe Giffin, lost the engine in his 1-2-1600 car on the 2nd lap. Both Larry Bolin and Cap'n Hook lost trannys at about the 10 mile mark in their Class 10 & Challenger cars respectively. Jason Devos, our latest prospective member, had engine problems with his 5-1600 ride and they parked it on the 2nd lap. Although only a shadow of its former glory, this year's Parker event was once again a good race. But, this Wahzoo is gonna quit goin' to Parker as soon as the ever growing number of cops in the Parker area finally surpasses the number of race cars entered. State cops, County cops, City cops, Indian cops, BLM cops and off-duty cops earnin' a buck, all seem to show up there at once. I mean, who the hell do they think is run-nin' these races, the Bloods and the Crips? During the Parker 400 weekend, the greater Parker area surely must be the most policed place on earth. Local revenue enhancement rather than crime control is obviously the reason for this overkill. CHECKER PIT SUPPORT has been limited to Memh~rs Onlv. Any member will tell ya, "ya cm{'r /my your «'ll'/ into the Checkers, 'Ill go·tt~i earn ic!" Although that's completely accurate, there is a way any non-Checker car owner can easily get full Checker pit support any time he wants. All they gotta do is put a Checker member into their car during the race, as either a co-driver or a pas-senger. This apparent loop hole in our normal members only policy has always been a win/ win deal for the Club. Car owners once exposed to the Checkers winning ways of doin' things often hecome good Checker members. This rule has also put dozens of Checker members into race cars over the years that normally wouldn't have gotten the chance. Three of our seven Club entries at this Parker race were cars owned by non-Checkers. And, they were all elig-ible for full Checker pit support for their racing effort because a Checker member was scheduled to get into their car sometime dur-ing this race. Now, before all you non-Checker car owners out there start swampin' us with calls to reserve a Checker member for your next race, let me caution you on a few things. If you have a teen-age daughter, this program may not be for you. Or, if you or your crew have trouble getting along with others ot superior attitude, this deal may result in a priinful adjustment. Plus, if your wife runs the show, be advised that no women are allowed in any Checker meetings, and that includes yours. But, if you're pretty much of a regular guy, and are looking for the best pit sup-port in the desert ... then we do have Checkers available in all shapes and sizes for your convenience.

The race was not put on by Eddie Castro as he had dosed up La Rana Desert Racing in October. John Lucas and Rich Fersch and the FAIR pit club pitched in to organize the race so that the year long struggle for points would not have been in vain. The two offered the race for a $250.00 entry fee to settle the year end points battles among the drivers.

Class 1400 had only one start and that was Robert Wilks. He and his team had a flawless race and they clinched their class points title. The best race of the day was between the 1600 cars.

S.N.O.R.E. Awards Banquet By Jean Calvin SNORE has always held their awards party at the Gold Coast Hotel and Casino in early January, after the demands for such parties has dissipated. It was the first Saturday of the year when the SNORE folks gathered in a banquet room at the Gold Coast. Genial host Michael Gaughan hosted an open bar for the troops and no one abused it. The man himself was back in Wisconsin with his son Brendan at the SODA awards, since Brendan won Class 8 and the champion-ship ring from two Crandon races. The Gold Coast Hotel is like a second home to us, and we have been staying there since the doors swung open some ten years ago. After an hour of just visiting with folks, dinner was served and it was delicious and meanwhile SNORE's hard working President Joe Ross, started the proceedings in hopes of unloading the multitude of trophies that covered the front tables. They also had a bunch of door prizes, so Joe started in while most others were eating. Rohby Goerke was tenth overall in points, for which he received $100 cash and a free entry in a 1997 SNORE race. In ninth overall Jeremy Gubler won $200 and a free race entry. 'Eighth overall on points Gene Griepen-trog won $400 and a free race entry. Jeff Carr was seventh and earned $600 and a free race entry. And Kevin Streety was sixth, good for a cool $800 and a free entry to the SNORE 250, SNORE's premiere race. Then came some special awards starting with Jerry Stewart who was given the True Grit Award, a special award. Jerry spent a lot of time getting his Oldsmobile welded in the pits and he was a popular winner. Driver of the Year was named Doug Ingram, who was Class 9 and overall champion in 1995. Then the drawing hegan for the door prizes. You got a free ticket with your dinner ticket and of course could buy more at three for a dollar. The pri:es wcre certainly worth it and SNORE is grateful to all the generous donors. Then the new Board of Directors were intro-duced including the new club officers. Everyone settled back in their chairs as Joe Ross began more racer awards.

The Heavy Metal Champion again was Jerry Stewart in his Olds and the Mini Metal Champion was Barry Slatter in his Ford Ranger. Kevin Streety repeated from last year as the 5-1600 champion, taking the trophy back to California, and taking home the Class 1-2-1600 honors '"".as B.J. Alm berg and his crew. Class 10 went to Gene Griepentrog with Kent Loth-ringer, and Gene, another Californian, after years of racing with SNORE had switched classes and got his first SNORE champ-ionship.

The latter two are hoth from Las Vegas. It was time to crown the overall champion. lt was Brian Sallee, who races in Class 9 with Jon Hignitt who shared driving the winning Class 9, and he took $4000 of SNORE's points fund home to Barstow, ·cA . As usual with SNORE they get a free entry to every one ofSNORE's races in 1997, and there are eight of them. That is prize money worth racing for! Our congratulations to Sallee and Hignitt and it sure makes the 1 70 mile drive seem well Seasons Greetings from B.O.R.E. By Jim Baker A very SJ'l'Cial thanks to all those who helped make the 8.O.R.E. tl'nth anniversary hanquet and the 1990 racing season a succl'ss. It has heen a pleasurl' to work with and for each of you. It is always my hope that evl'ryone had a good timl', because after a II what l'lse is there?

And you just hl'arJ it from the l'tl'rnal optimist. If you missed the hanquet at Wendover this yl'ar you just missed an l'Vl'ning of gooJ fun. We had some goofy awards, soml' frivolity, rewarded some achieve-ments and gave away a tahle full of goodies. Rick Taylor even serenaded us with his own song, the highlight o f the evening. Thanks Pal!!! Speaking of awards I apologi:e for the oversight of not presenting class winner plaques to Rick Taylor and Jeff Rohinson. The plaques have heen sent to them along with the traditional points champion and runner up jackets, not ready when we left for Wendover that Jay. The jackets are hlack with logo, points lettering and names. Rick's is Season Points Champ and Jeff's is Runner Up. WL' had rems of valuahle door prizes from two way radios to air compressors. Sets of Yokohama tires, and a hox of BFGoodrich goodies did not arrive until the following week. There were tool sets, jackets and lots more from our sponsors and local folks. Our annual Dell Heninger Sportsman of the Year honor was once again given to a man justly deserving . As you know, it is you, the drivers, whose nominations and votes determine the recipient each season. As is usual the voting represents your esteem for many of the 8.O.R.E. memhers, and whilt· voting is normally close, worthwhile. The Perfect Attendance award went to Matt Cunningham. The Race Sponsor of the Year was KC HiLites, Contingency Company of the Year was, as everywhere, BFGoodrich, Sportsman of the Year, Jim Conner. There were a number of Awards to Race workers that we missed getting on paper.We couldn't write as fast as Joe Ross can talk. And the final presentation was the Jimmy Schaefer Award created in memory of Jimmy Schaefer who died suddenly the year he was President of SNORE. This oddly enough was a tie vote, and only previous winners of this award are allowed to vote. The winners were Mike Looney, a tireless \.\'.Orker for SNORE, and President Joe Ross almost equally tireless. With that the har stayed open for a half hour, people gathered in clumps and the 1996 SNORE season was over. The 1997 season starts soon on Fehruary 10, in the Las Vegas area. See you there. there i;, always a clear choiCl'. This year that rl'cognition Wl'nt to car owner, a hdping hand to any racer nl'l'ding him, and hl' is onl' of our tl'ch inspl'ctors. Congratulations Ll's Wolfe!!' You ckscrvl' thl' honor. Earlier I alluded to the fact that I am the eternal optimist. In order to improve on my success as an optimist. some of you are going to hl' called upon to exert some monumental efforts to huild our numhns. This is your racing association, dedicated to offer you, thl' racer, a great race venue, competitive, hut never to lose the warm and friendly family fun and spirit we have always had. Just recently some of our memhers have related several had experiences they had at other racl'S which cost them any chance of doing well. I do not for a moment think that other associa-tions want nor promote that type of reputation. As always the prohlems stem from individuals who, for whatever reason, have an attitude. They Jo not have the R.O .R.E. attitude unfortunately. As we grow, it is not unlikely Wl' will have such individuals visit us, to race or spectate or help someone else race, what we might say to them is hest demonstrated hy the examples we set. In that same vein of thought, we have very rarely had to reprimand anyone. When we did have to, every attempt was made to make it courteous, fair and friendly. It is never our position to make a 8.O.R.E. race anything hut as much fun as you can stand ... This is the Holiday season. Your officers and Dorothy and I all wish each of you the very merriest Christmas and a pros-perous New Year. Dusty Times

"It is a nice end to a long struggle, with three times coming second on world championship rallies, and especially after the disappointment of losing last year's Catalunya rally in the late stages." This was Subaru's and Pirelli 's third successive world championship win and a dramatic way to start a whole new rallying era. Subaru heads the world championship though the diffi-cult weather conditions meant it was hard to gauge the real effect of the new car regulations. The World Rally Cars finally broke cover at Monte Carlo which heralds the start of a new style world rally championship, and which saw significant changes in the format of the world's most famous rally after decades of tradition. We saw not only new cars but new championship systems, new rules and new philosophies as well. But, strang-est of all, we didn't see just one Monte Carlo Rally -but two; the World Pro Rally Championship .::ounting for points and the far larger amateur rou who scored no WCR points, thus excluding many competitors from scoring points in Group N and WZL, unless they entered the profes-sional event. In accordance with the 1997 rules, the three top teams each entered two cars. Their principal challengers were Toyota Celica GT-Fours driven by Freddy Loix and Isolde Holderied. At the elev-enth hour Didier Auriol was entered in an Escort Cosworth and even later came the entry of former European champion Cesar Baroni entered in a similar car, privately. Professional drivers were excused from the long Concentra-tion road section, but they had to carry out repairs in modern style Service Parks. The other rally was for amateurs who had to make their way to Monte Carlo from three different starting locations, but had the freedom to carry out service where they wished.

P" Grand Prix circuit, both at the start on Sunday for all the entry, and at the end, just for the top drivers. In between there were three days . of action on wintry roads. The event ended W ednes-day evening with the second sec-tion round the streets of the Prin-cipality for the top cars only. The performance of the World Rally Cars would be indicative, both to see whether they were fas-ter than the orthodox Group A designs, and also to see how ready the cars were. This year the FIA rules limited official teams to just two cars each with both cars scor-ing points and every event count-ing, which demanded a high degree of reliability. And with eight of 14 qualifying rounds before the middle of June, there will be a strong advantage for teams whose cars start the season well sorted and reliable. By the morning of Etape 1 the weather had changed. It rained all night and was still falling when daylight arrived. Spectators how-ever gathered all around the har-bor front using countless natural grandstands. They expected to see the cars make two laps of the circuit, then leave the seafront track to head away north into France. Then the rally seemed to start early. Overnight officials decided that every driver should have a warm-up lap and this gave spectators a chance to see the cars three times. It was an excellent show, notwithstanding the weather. On stage 10 Auriol retired with transmission trouble, which could only be changed at the end of a leg so there was no chance to carry on. Auriol had been leading to this point. The last stage saw Sainz have misfiring problems and the rally stars were having trouble. Sainz picked up time on the next stage and fin-ished 18 seconds behind Makinen and in third place overall three seconds behind Liatti. Soa Group A car was beating the new wonder machines and at two thirds dis-tance only three out of23 cars had retired. The cars all sounded dif-ferent.

Finishing second in class was Frank and Sean Krepsz who brought their pre-runner out to race and did a good job. The team got lost and also had their motor separate from the tranny. Frank would like to thank his girl friend for riding with him in her first race ever. Also I think the waitresses at the Quigley's Restaurant would like to thank the Krepsz co-driver for his assistance in waiting on tables. (You had to be there) On January 4 Paul Duffy put on his first race in Barstow, CA, The Mojave 200. There were over 40 entries and 38 of them actually took the green flag. It is not bad for so early in the year and the first race from a new promoter. M.D.R. (Mojave Desert Racing) offered a low entry fee with not a real high payback. It worked for the racers who didn't care much about taking a lot of money home. The overall winner was Kory Scheeler with B.J. Richardson in their Jimco A-arm Class 10 car. They finished 10 minutes ahead of second overall, the car of John Page 30 Lucas. Class 100 had one starter but he got in all five required laps. Bill Robertson had pittman arm trouble and exhaust problems en route to the finish but he got it all handled and carried on to the flag for the official Class 100 victory. There were three Class 200 cars and John Lucas, with Ron Osborne and Matt McMillen co-driving, took first in class and second overall. The team had a flat tire and a hole in a push rod tube which kept them from the overall win. Second in class was Steve Houston who lost the rear Third in Class 5-1600 was Charlie Smith and taking fourth was Aaron Bennett.

Dan had a three plus hour first lap, did a good second lap and parked some-where, but he did get the class win. Class 900 had three start and two finished the six laps. Harry Dunne had a new co-driver this race and that was Joel Mohr with Jimmy Messick riding. Starting second and taking the lead in three miles Joel gave the car to Harry with a 20 plus minute lead; and Harry kept the car going to a Class 900 victory with nearly a 30 minute lead. Mike Haddock was second in class and had a clear day until the tranny let go a half mile out from the finish line on the last lap. They were able to push the car in to take the flag and second place finish points. Art Velasco Jr. in his first ever race driving, blew a tranny on lap 2. Frank and Sean Krepz brought their pre-runner out for the race, got lost once and had some mechanical troubles but still pulled second place in 5-1600. Charlie Smith charges around the course in his tidy 5-1600 taking a nice third in class in a darn good class race. Class 10 also had a good showing with six cars. Coming out on top with the class win as well as the overall victory was Kory Scheeler with B.J. Richard-son co-driving. The team had no troubles to report other than getting lost on lap 1.

During our existence, MAG-7 has had the honor of association with some of the greatest names in racing and we have also witnessed many changes in the sport. We have seen race teams, sponsors and support groups come and go. But, as much as the sport has changed, the challenge that brought us and our equipment to Baja and elsewhere still remains the same. MAG-7 has made a committ-ment in 1997 to support all SCORE races in the US and Mexico. We are also prepared to provide support for FUD events and Casey Folks Best In The Desert Silver State Series if there is enough racer interest. MAG-7 will also continue the tradition of providing the "hot towel" lunch stop for the Tecate Enduro Trail Ride sponsored by Los Ancianos MIC Club in April. While it is true that some of the major sponsors of various off road events have significantly reduced their programs and budgets, the independent race teams will continue to make the sport thrive as they always have. MAG-7 was conceived to support independent race teams and we are committed to continue doing so. If you are a race team in need of pit support or if you simply want to enjoy off road racing as a member of MAG-7, please contact us at the numbers listed below and we will send you a 1997 MAG-7 event calendar: Phillip Breedlove: ( 619) 2 79-0411 x3440 (voice mail); Wayne Newell: (619) 745-5740.• FRT DUNAWAY Dash MAG-7 accepted FUD's invita-tion to spend New Years Eve manning check #2 just below the awesome "Sand Hill Climb". MAG-7 brother Charlie Bignell (Charlie's Garage, Ramona) was going to do whatever was necessary to help his racing partner "Rocket" Rod Fantelli (Spirit Racing) win the race and the points championship in his Class 7 Toyota. According to FUD's complicated calculations, all Fantelli needed was a win to secure the championship. Any thing less than a win made things more complicated. Bignell and Fantelli's strategy was to maintain consistent lap times and allow nature to take its course. The strategy worked to perfection as they not on! y won the race to take the points championship, but they were also the only Class 7 to finish the very difficult race in the time limit. Congratulations to Rod Fantelli, Spirit Racing and Charlie's Garage in Ramona. SCORE PARKER 400 The Parker 400 was attended by MAG-7 in support of Hernquist Racing {Bill Hern-quist # 1004 ), the ISRT Racing Team (#553 Carlos and Gerardo lribe), and MAG-7 provided emergency support for Robert Hayley ( #877 ).

CRS Letter By Robert T allini The 1996 season proved to he one to remember. Great battles were fought in all the classes and competitors overcame everything from forest fires to new stage roads. Southern California roads were in the greatest shape in years, allowing for fierce competition and a relatively low DNF rate. Congratulations should go out to the 1996 class champions. The Four-wheel Open driver champ~ ion was Denn-is Chizma and navigator champion was Carlos Tavares. Bill Malik and his navigator Farina O'Sullivan took the top honors in Two-wheel Open. The Performance Stock champions were driver Robert Tallini, along with his navigator Steve Scott, who scored his third CRS Championship in a row! Finally, Stock Class was won by the rookie sensations of Terry Stonecipher and his navigator Michelle Gibeault. The CRS Board of Governors met in November and agreed on a few changes for the coming year. Discussions revolved around the 1997 schedule and the proposal of new events. Firstly, the Ensenada 2000 event, organized by Tony Chavez, will count for CRS points in 97. It will only count as a substitute event, but being the first race of the year means competitors are compelled to attend. The standout event of the year, Rim of the World, has also been discussed by the BOG. This year will see a modified format for divisional competitors and a slightly shorter course than the National Competitors. Still slated for the 97 season are the Gorman Ridge Rally, Presc?tt Forest Rally ( once again a tull National Event) and the Treeline Forest Rally. Omitted from this year's schedule will be the Norpac Reno Rally. Finally there are two desert events scheduled for the fall of 97. These events are both organized by Roger Allison. The dates need to be firmed up, but look for them to take place in November and December of 97. Another topic of the BOG meeting was a Pro Rally School. All BOG members agreed that a school would be a good idea and would be a great way to introduce the sport to new rallyists. Therefore, CRS is putting on a Pro Rally Workshop and School. lt is scheduled for March 1 and will be held in Ridgecrest. The school will allow CRS veterans and champions to pass their vast driving and navigating experience on to new rallyists. Anyone interested in enrolling or assisting with the school should contact Ray Hocker or Paula Gibeault. We look forward to seeing you there. The 97 CRS season appears to be a pivotal one for rally. New to the schedule this year are rallies such as the Ensenada 2000 and Roger Allison's Palm Springs to Las Vegas events in the fall. As well as new events, many rallyists who sat out last season are rumored to be returning in 97. Furthermore, 'outside interest in rail y seems to be growing. Force feeding the public on rally seems to have finally paid off. It seems they have acquired a taste for us. This season many National events are scheduled for television broadcasts ( ESPN) and Roger Allison's desert rallies are negotiating both television coverage and large prize funds. This can only spell growth for the sport and a bright future for the California Rally Series. MAG·7 (continued from page 32) by a "microwave sized" boulder that was left in his path by a Class 8 truck that he was attempting to pass in the first 20 miles and a broken rocker in the last lap to finish a very respectable fourth in a very competitive class. The lribe team had the misfortune of breaking an intermediate axle early in the race which cost a precious hour. They drove like heck chasing Ledezma and wound up in the second position. Congratulations to the lribes' and Bill Hernquist . Robert Hayley finished third in pro-trucks without any emergency support required. Congratulations also to Robert. The Shea Road pit captained by Steve Stenberg with help from Wayne Newell and Andy Pina which also served as the main pit for Hernquist reported no problems out of the ordinary. The Mineral Wash Pit captained by Shawn Wells with help from Mark Cranmore served as an emergency pit and saw plenty of action in that remote area of the course. Midway was captained by Charlie Bignell and also served as lribe's driver change area. Charlie reported tough radio commun-icatios due to the power lines. MAG-7 would like to thank Bill Hernquist and J imco (Mike Julson) for backing us up at· Midway and Graham Wells. What's next ... MAG-7 will run a radio checkpoint for the FUD King of the Desert race 2/8197. We will also support the next SCORE race which is the San Felipe 250 (317-9197). Final pit locations will be determined at our next meeting. Best wishes for a prosperous and Happy 1997 to all! COMING NEXT MONTH ••• Parker 400 -SNORE Bottom Dollar M.O.R.E.
