Seems like nobody noticed the new guy on the course until it was too late. Curt LeDuc figured he'd cool it a bit and go for the overall win at Parker, but the figures came out all wrong as Curt was the first vehicle to finish the race, the first Trophy Truck to finish, but he ended up third overall on elapsed time.

Driving the Kendall Performance JIMCO Type 4 VW Class 1 car running on Bilstein shock absorbers, Herder started near the back of the 27-car field and passed them all for the lead in the second of three laps on the Nevada/ California course. Herder was driving so hard that he didn't know he was leading the race until the finish when he had won by over four minutes. "John drove a great race and the car never missed a beat," commented Bryan Kendall, the team's crew chief. "Our Bilstein shock setup was perfect and they allowed our car to out-handle the competition." Go With Bi/stein! · A Winning Tradition In Off-Road Racing!

Barlow, from Thousand Oaks, CA, started sixth in class at Parker and finished over one hour ahead of the ProTruck competition. Barlow has become the man to beat in ProTrucks as his win at Parker was his third victory in the five races he has entered in this new class. "We were hooked up today," said Barlow. ''The Bilstein shocks gave us consistent performance to allow us to run hard all day." Starting its second season in SCORE racing, Ivan Stewart's ProTrucks have become a popular and highly competitive class.

SURPRISE WINNER AT SCORE'S PARKER 400 John Herder Wins First Time Out Troy Herbst gave it the good fight all race long but was unable to hold first in Class 1, settling for second and second overall. John Who? That was the question as John Herda charged through the pack to take the overall win as well as the Class 1 at the Parker 400. His win skyrocketed John Herder into contender status for the season points. John Herder has been racing for about three years, but the Ari:ona driver was a virtual unknown at the Parker 400; one of those cars no one remembered to watch. That is, until he'd finished his first lap and they figured out that he had the lead. And he still had that lead at the end of the day, winning overall in his Type IV powered Jimco. SCORE's season opener was a little shorter this year, after the amputation of about 20 miles of the course, and the total length worked out to about 33 7 .6 miles. As is usual at Parker, the three ended up taking the original laps were not identical lengths, outward-bound road back to the thanks to the arrangement of the start/ finish, measured 117 miles start/ finish line.

The second lap didn't in'land to dampen the desert travel down into the neighbor-around t'arker a bit, but the rain hood of the start line, and held off for Friday and Saturday therefore measured just 107 of the race weekend. While miles, while lap three, which . Friday had been sunny and bright, Saturday dawned cloudy and windy. This wasn't terribly comfortable for the spectators, but it meant that none of the racers had to start off into a blinding rising sun, nor did they drive into a blinding setting sun at the end of the day. The clouds hung around for the duration, and the wind helped clear the course of dust. Very nice racing weather. The cars started out at 7:30 a.m., single file, thirty seconds apart. The Trophy Trucks, now racing as a regular SCORE class, started in front.Jeff Lewis had his Chevrolet at the front of the pack by the end oflap one, with a zippy Trophy Trucks are running with the rest of the pack now but it mattered little to Curt LeDuc as he brought the Jeep Cherokee home first in Trophy and third overall. . average speed of 59 miles per hour, and only 10 seconds in front of Curt LeDuc in his Jeep. Mike Tieman, in a Chevrolet, was ', third, about five minutes later. Tim and Ed Herbst had blown the front shocks on their Ford and spent a long time with repairs, while Danny and Marty Letner were changing a transmission in their Chevy. On the second lap Lewis lost his motor, and Tieman dis-appeared for undisclosed reasons. LeDuc now had a shoo-in, if he could but finish. He decided to cool it and concentrate on getting to the finish line, hoping to time it just right so he'd get the overall . win, as well as the class victory. But his timing was off, and while he won the Trophy Truck race handily, he was able to finish only third in the overall ranks. The Herbsts were second, over two hours behind him, and the Letners were third, another four hours later, after replacing a c. v. joint and a U-joint. LeDuc's average speed for the race was 58.03 mph. In the Unlimited class Herder's bright red and yellow Type IV poweredJimco had the spectators taking notice, as he forged , through traffic. He'd started 24th and was sixth on the road when he finished that first lap, and had over three minutes on Troy Herbst in a Porsche powered Mike Smith chassis. In third it was Bob Gordon in his Toyota Chenowth, and Rick and Randy Wilson ran fourth in their A-armed Jimco. John Cooley was fifth in Carlton Post's '97 Jimco. At the end of the second loop, Herder was second on the road, with only Herbst in front of him. Herbst was second on corrected time, and Gordon held third, about three minutes back. In fourth it was the Wilsons, followed by Doug Fortin, Jr. in his V 4 Chevy powered Chenowth. But the W ilsons lost ground on the last lap when they broke a . trailin arm, and Fortin dis-Bob Gordon gave it everything he had in the race to the checkers in Class 1 but ended up third in class, about 12 minutes out of first. Ray Croll enjoyed his first race in Class 1. using the Toyota motor to take him to a solid fourth in class and Ray is certainly looking forward to the rest of the season. Page a April 1997 I appeared all together. On that last lap Herbst charged 1 hard, hoping to shake Herder, but I it wasn't possible. Herbst crossed the finish line first, but Herder i showed up in time to get the overall victory, and bump Herbst to second, five minutes and 37 seconds back. Herder's average speed was 59 .534. In third place it was Gordon, who'd had a shock , problem and Ray Croll moved up to fourth, enjoying the power of his new four cylinder Toyota, in his first race in the unlimited class. Croll had been a Class 10 racer for years. Mark McMillin finished fifth, saying he'd run in . fourth and fifth gears full time in ' his Porsche powered Chenowth. The Class 8 trucks were next to take off, and Brian Collins put his Chevy out in front, a narrow 42 seconds in front of teammate Dale White in another Chevy. In third it was Dave W esthem in another Chevy, while last year's season champions, Dave Ashley and Dan 'Smith, were struggling with flats, ,and ran fourth in their Ford. !Collins increased his lead to five minutes on the second lap, and it lwas still White in second place. now Ashley and Smith were up to !third, and Steve Sourapas had moved to fourth. Sourapas, in a Dodge, was out for his first race in a Class 8 truck, a big switch from his previous ride in a buggy. Collins looked good for the win, but part way through the last lap he lost a steering box, and also replaced the rear end which had been going away during the second lap. White moved to the front and came home with the win, even without power steering for the final 50 miles. He averaged '54.29 mph. Ashley and Smith were having a transmission replaced and W esthem had lost two hours on the second lap. 1Dave Vanyo and Bryan Christen-\sen finished second in their first , race, which was also the first race ;for their truck, a '94 Ford which 'they'd spent the last year and a · half building. Lonnie Helmbolt and Vernon Lamprey were third in a '67 Ford Stepside. Ashley and Smith salvaged a fourth place, two and a half hours behind the winning truck. Class 10, ·which started next, has a new look for '97. It's been split. In an effort to bring back the racers who own cars based on the VW beam-type suspension, which are powered by VW air cooled motors, SCORE has segregated them. Actually; they can still race with the A-arm water . cooled folks if they like the challenge, but for those who choose it, there's a new class, . called SCORE Lites_, _meant Dusty Times

Ed Herbst was literally flying as he tried to make up time after a first lap problem. Ed settled tor the silver after a day long chase in Trophy Truck class. David Vanyo drove the neat looking Ford to second in Class B, the first race tor them and the truck, can't do much better that that. Robert Harman took his Jimco to a nice second place in Class 10, running hard all day and ending up two minutes in arrears. exclusively for cars with the. beam-type suspension and air cooled moters of 1776cc or 1835cc. SCORE started the water cooled Class 10s just behind the Class 8 trucks, and when they completed the first loop it was Jerry Penhall in front, with three and a half minutes on Rod Muller and Mike Halliday in their Pontiac powered A-armedJimco. In third it was Robert Harman in his 1776cc VW powered beam-type Lothringer. Harman didn't think there had been any need to split the classes. Running fourth it was Chris Harrold in a new Acura powered A-armed Jimco, while the team of Larry Foddrill and Jim Greenway were fifth in a Toyota powered Chenowth. Penhall's lead had grown to nearly five minutes by the end of the second lap, and it was still Muller and Halliday in second place, after two flats. In third it was now Jim and Mike Zupano-vich in a beam-type J .M .R. powered by a Toyota, and driving conservatively because they knew the starter wasn't working and they couldn't afford to get into a fix with a stalled motor.

Erl had moved up to third, with Clay Flippin and Thomas Franczak in fourth in their Raceco. Ron Dalke and Jason Cobb had their Raceco up to fifth. Honold, who did more driving than he planned to, because Echegollen got sick partway through his section, led the class most of the way through the third lap, and then had major front end problems. As he made repairs Dean and the Goerkes, whose crew chief told us they wouldn't have raced if the class hadn't been split, went to the front. They'd had no problems beyond an early run-in with a truck that cost them their front bumper. They went on to take the win with an average speed of 50 .02 miles per hour, and 45 minutes in front of the second place car. That was Dalke and Cobb, who'd outlasted their rear suspension and had to wait for gas at one pit. In third it was Ridings, who'd broken a valve spring on the second lap, and fourth place went to Erl, who said he'd had a terrible day, with a broken c .v. on the last lap. Honold and Echegollen managed to get back in time to earn fifth place, disappointed to finish so far back after doing so well for most of the day.

Pete Sohren led on the first lap, slipped to second on lap two, lost the clutch on lap three but still got the silver medal in Class 5. Ron Dalke worked his way through the Class 12 pack, had a few major problems along the way but took second place in class and was happy to be there at the end. Tom Ridings took his Class 12 Mirage to a neat third in class, in spite of some real troubles on the second lap. · .,-_ Gary Gall, in a J imco. They had just six seconds on Scott Webster and Rodney Wolfe in their ORBS, and they were only 40. seconds up on Bekki Freeman in her Bunderson. Then there was a tie for fifth between Jason Hatz in his Dunrite and Arden Dennington. The fifth place cars were just one minute and one second behind first place. Hatz moved into the lead on the second lap, even though he was having some trouble seeing, because his pumper helmet had quit and he had to drive with the visor up, and was in quite a lot of dust. Now Craig Forrest and John Prosser had come up to second place in their Mirage, having lost a little time with repairs to their mandatory rear-facing amber light. In third it was Darnen Jefferies, in a Jimco, whose spark plug wires kept popping off, and then came Gus Vildosola and Charlie Watters in their new Jimco. They'd replaced their points and had a rock in a power steering belt. Rusich and Gall had fallen to fifth, nine minutes behind the leader, and then they didn't come around again . Freeman fell back with two flats on the same side at the same time, and later her motor was reduced to three cylinders. And Webster and Wolfe broke a rear adjuster finger and lost a lot of time replacing it. Hatz had n.o problems, or at least he didn't think he had any. His alternator was about to fall off, and his pit crew knew it, but they didn't tell him, because they didn't want him to slow down. So he didn't, and it lasted long enough for him to get the win, a nice way to break in a new car. He averaged 48.46 mph. Forrest and Prosser were second, only a little over five minutes later, followed in by Jeffries, a minute and 45 seconds behind them. In fourth it I was Patrick Burton and Nick Bruinsma, in a Suspensions Unlimited car which Bruinsma · had rolled on the first lap. Vildosola and Watters finished fifth. The Pro Tucks started next, and in this group the first lap leader was Steve Barlow in his Ford, with almost 10 minutes on the second place truck of Michael James and Mike Kalicki.

Landfield :>.nd Turley started under something of a handicap, not having got to Parker until about 3 a.m. on race morning. Helm and Graham had to make a quick repair to a lower A-arm mount, but still had about 15 minutes lead at the end of the second lap. But on the third lap their front suspension was going away, and they slowed a bit, letting Land field and Turley close up. At the finish it was Helm and Graham taking the win by just six minutes.

Leo Brown and Mike Horner had all their problems on lap one, drove their Ford hard as they could and took second in Mini at Parker. April 1997 Darnen Jeffries had electrical problems all race long but hung in there for third in 1600, only a minute out of second place. Steve Miller took his Chevy to a nice third in Pro Truck after fighting a most unusual electrical problem during the race. A slight rollover and subsequent help from Bob Wright, a-rel/ow 5-1600 competitor enabled Frank Omboli to grab third place in the Arizona desert. Marc Stein and his Ford were fifth. then third and finally moved into second place for a nice finish in Stoc-" Full. The Kiely/Woodward Class 11 started late, got lost, lost some shocks but still gathered in second place, the end of a perfect day. r,r Dusty Times

There was a Chevrolet, driven by Mike McComas, and at this point he was sixth, 46 seconds further back. Pro Trucks belonged to Steve Barlow who had a trouble free race, no mechanical problems or flats and took the class by almost an hour and twelfth overall as well. Sykes, who was driving the same truck he's run for several years, held his lead, and had 20 minutes at the end of the second lap. Olliges and Hayley, who'd lost power steering fluid when a nut backed off, were second, with Stein now up to third. He'd been run into extra hard early in the day, and when he had a flat discovered tha the hit had runined his jack, so it took a long time to change the tire. Oliver and Griffith were now fourth, and Gordon DiCarlo and Greg Woodington were fifth in the new Ford that will be Sykes's from now on.

Cochran, were up to fourth. On the third lap the Ledezmas tossed an alternator belt, but had no other trouble, and took the win. They had just a little over 10 minutes on Burgin and Fersch. But the tech team discovered something illegal in Burgin's. carburetor, and DQ'd the car. That moved the Iribe family up to second place, almost exactly an hour behind the winner. Omboli had a rock in a caliper and thought his transmis-sion was going on the last lap, so he babied the car for a while, until the rock apparently wore down to nothing, or tell out, and the noise stopped. He and Cochran took third, saying it was their first trouble free race since '95. In Class 9 the first lap leader was the team of Michael Faulkner and Rick Poole in a Jimco. They got a late start because their plugs fouled at the start, but still had 11 minutes on Rich Richardson in another Jimco. In third it was the team of Jeff Geiser, Greg Pierce and Jason Pierce, all racing for the first time, in a Geiser / Dirtrix.

At the end of the second lap it was still Poole and Faulkner in front, and now they had about 12 minutes on Richardson's co~ driver, Billy Bunch. In third it was the Pierce/Geiser team, who'd had a flat. The Y ees lost some time when Eli rolled over, but they were still fourth, with Hovey and Christensen close in fifth. Poole and Faulkner had only one problem, a plug wire that fell off, and held a steady pace to get the win. It was Poole's third victory at Parker, but the first win for the car. In second it was Richardson, Bunch and their third driver, Doug Perrault, who complained about being "out of shape." Third went to the ,Geiser/ Pierce team, who'd lost their antenna and had no communications most of the day. lfovey and Christensen came up April 1997 to fourth, squeaking by the fifth place Yees by just 19 seconds.

Di Carlo and Woodington were fourth, and McComas and his co-driver, Steve Christensen got their first finish in the Chevy, in fifth place. · The Stock Mini trucks didn't have a go0d day. Allen Russell and Scott relt started out in the lead in their Toyota, with 'Jreg Foutz, Mike Martin and Si:eve Wheeler runri~g second in their Ford, less than a minute back. In . third it was Allen Harris and Steve Williams in their Ford. On the second lap Foutz, W~eeler and Martin moved into the lead, with Williams and Harris second, as Russell dropped to third. Leo Brown and Mike Horner, another Ford, were fourth after a kng first lap because of a siezed bearing that caused the wheel to come off, and then a radiator that had to be replaced. They were running strong now. Williams and Harris continued to have a good run, and finished first, with Russell, who'd had rear shock problems, second, a half hour later. Meanwhile, out on the course, Foutz, Wheeler and Martin were down to five cylinders and their transmission was going away. They tried driving in reverse for about five miles, but that broke the rear end. So they stopped and welded it, then took two junk transmissions and combined them into one usable one, and installed it in the truck. All this took a couple hours. Meanwhile, Brown and Horner were still running fine, ;and closing up on them some. And, back at the finish line, someone decided that the tech inspectors needed to look at the Williams/Harris truck, which had already been released, so it was recalled to the tech area.

Glen Helen 1997 Short Course Cha111pionship Series Round One By Ron Miller l'hotos: Ralph Mason Steve Bishop, who else, dominated the 1-2-1600 Short Course in both heats and began anew his 1997 search for "Racer Of The Year" which he won last year. 1997 was barely a month old, bowl" which was contested the when the gates swung open and Sunday before, the "pack was folks everywhere began descend-back". Perhaps only the return of ing upon Glen Helen's beautiful Springtime (and maybe the com-off-highway vehicle park, for the pletion of traffic school), can opening round of Short Course compare to the feeling one gets action. February 2nd was the when we wipe the slate clean and exact date, and like the "Super-start anew in a fresh season. Only . in Round One can you find a raw "rookie" deadlocked in the stand-ings with the reigning "Racer of the Year". Until that first flag drops, all racers are on even terms, sharing equal space at the top of their class. The dawning of . the '97 series had arrived, and DEST Page 16 April 1997 Jeffrey Hantz piloted his good looking 5-1600 to wins in both heats and his quest for the 1997 points title begins. each aspiring "King" of the ( off) road clearly "had a dream". It was time to begin the long journey, down that familiar road, that would lead to the 1997 cham-pionship crown. Boh, Greg, John, Art, and the rest of the fearless crew, took up their usual positions, as we set sail on a three hour tour that was the '97 opening kickoff. Attendance was impressive as the sports true patriots streamed into the park. These greenback payers packed the stands as the start of the big show neared. The big cheese reported a sparse number of rac-ers on hand, but it seemed to make no difference to the sud-denly large number of cheese heads assembled. There was no penalty for delay of game, espe-cially since entries are sure to increase as the season progresses. ('..s this years players emerged from the huddle and lined up for play, there were some exciting new changes and formations. Sev-eral racers had switched classes and a few even swapped vehicles. A new class made its debut, and an interesting course change was made for ATV racers. O .K., all right, I'll get to the race, just one last item on the importance of 1;etting off to a good start. Word: HOLESHOT pro-nounced (Hol-shawt) noun/defi-nition: 1. To prove fastest of all competitors at the start of a race. 2. The term that describes the act of the racer quickest off the start-ing line when a race begins. 3. Description of the earliest possi-ble leader in a race. (i.e., as in Ramiro Gonzalez again grabbed the holeshot). Finally, without further delay, (and no commmer cial messages) the 1997 curtain is raised. ,,,-Dusty Times

starter in his class, as he launched his bid for a repeat title with a win. Race three was for Classes 9, 10, 11, 1-2-1600 Short Course, and 5-1600. In 1-2-1600 there were three entrants signed up, and Steve Bishop (#21) again was superb. Showing the form that earned him "Racer of the Year" status in 1996, Bishop had little difficulty separating himself from the others. The result was a pair of decisive victories on the after-noon. Taking second and third in both heats were Sean Ziegert (#5) and Rafael Navarro (#56) respectively. Adam Rasmussen didn't have much competition in Class 10 but took both heats and leads the class in points tor '97. Toby Thiel took the Class 11 win, shown here powering into a turn with all horsepower available. Class 5-1600 had a pair of entrants, and the match race was between Jeffrey Hantz (#588) and Kyle Sullivan ( #553 ).

Ylikangas, despite suffering from a painfully sore back, man-aged to hold on to second. Pete Saldana ( #916) finished third in heat two, while Kelty claimed the overall third spot. Ylikangas injured his back just prior to arriving for this race, but still took home a narrow overall win over Mustoe. It had to be a special vic-tory for "Arto", who competed with "the most pain I've ever had". Classes 10 and 11 were both walkovers, as each class had but single entries. The solo score in Class 10 was registered by Adam. Rasmussen ( # 1007 ), while Toby. Thiel ( # 1140) did likewise in Class 11. Competition will even-tually rule in these normally hotly contested classes, as the season wears on. The final race on this abbre-viated program was slated for Classes 7S and 8, and 8S. A quartet of 7S trucks faced the starter, and the day clearly belonged to Ramiro Gonzalez (727). Gonzalez blitzed his foes early.and late to complete his per-fect day, and also get his season off to a fast start. Rick Huseman (#736) raced well and took second in both heats and overall.

Class 8 had only a solitary sign up, which meant that Scott Con-way's (#824) victory was never in doubt. In Class BS a 4-pack did battle, but it was really no contest. Denise Wittman ( #85 7) made her debut in the 8S Class a winning one. With the greatest of ease, Denise stepped up from the Pilot Class to Full-Size truck and took home a pair of victories. Right from the start there were serious problems for the remaining trio. Sean McKenzie (#855) suffered a broken ring and pinion, and "Dynamite Dan" Cannon (#851) a broken axle. These two "game-cocks" will live to fight another dav, but on this occasion they couldn't do much than spectate. Shad Kennedy (#859) was knocked out of heat one about the halfway point with engine trouble. Thus McKenzie placed second and Cannon third in heat one and overall results. Kennedy did come back to race well and grab second in heat two, but his heat one problems proved costly in overall scoring. It's far too early in the season to make an accurate assessment of, or pass judgement on Round One's trends. I was somewhat taken aback by the conspicuous absences of some of the regular competitors on this circuit. But the year round racing grind seems to call for every racing team to take a breather at some point dur-ing the season. It was business as usual at the turnstiles though, as there was ample fan support. All of us connected to the sport are truly grateful for your patronage.

Stacy Fay always runs hard and the Roaring Resolution was no different as she took Class 7S handily. The Bragg's came out to Barstow to win and win they did in their Sandy Parker chased the Johnsons all race long but in the end husky looking Class 8 truck•. had to settle for second in Class 9. M.O.R.E. ROARING RESOLUTION Kevin McGillivray Wins In Barstow By Jimmy Messick The first race from M.O.R.E last January, the Roaring Resolu-tion drew only twenty cars but they put on a pretty good show, running eight laps on a thirty mile course that used a lot of roads that haven't been raced on since the 1970s. The racers really enjoyed the exciting and well marked course and the pit folk and specta-tors enjoyed the eight laos , This is the system run by most off road race winners because they got to see a lot of cars more often. Jim Clements of M .O .R .E worked with long time off road racer Tom Craig, Sr., to make the course fun and challenging. The next race scheduled for March 22, in the Barstow area is again run-ning a thirty mile course with eight laps required for an official finish. Twenty miles of the course TRI-MIL BOBCAT qIROME 1984-91 CORVETTE; 2 V2" OR 3" S.S. TARGA MUFFLER ......

A lot of people were really impressed with the payback on only 20 cars. The race started right on time at 8:00 a.m., with Warren Messick of Barstow lead-ing off in his Class 10 car. Class 10 drew only two cars. Kevin McGil-livray and Jim Greenway took over the lead on the first lap and the pair hung on in the car to win the race and were first overall! The team had no trouble on course and took home a check for $1,200.00; not too shabby a showing for two cars. Messick had his problems including a broken brake caliper, boost bottle problems and a handful of flats, but he turned some impressive lap times for his first time out in his 10 car. Class 1-2-16, 1600, had a total of five start, but only two of them finished the eight laps. Taking the class win was Brad Inch who had brake troubles en route to the checkered flag. He also received a check for $825. Second in the 1600 class was Andrew Lindquist and Matt Stankavich; this team had a flat tire, and carb problems; Matt would have to keep the car running from the passenger side as Andrew stopped for the check-points. The two soloed turning some consistent lap times. Third among the 1600 cars was John Hicks. Taking fourth in 1600 class was Mike "one nut" Danley. He let Tom Craig Jr. start the race, but broke a gland nut on lap 3. But Tommy was still able to bend up a few of Mike's new pol-ished Centerline Wheels in the short time. Fifth was Malcolm Bryce and Perry King, who dropped out after 10 miles. There was only one Class 5-1600 and that was Chip Davis, who went out after six laps. Rea-son unknown. There was also only one Sportsman Buggy and that was Paul Smith, who had a good run finishing the race. There were only two trucks entered. The Braggs in their Class 8 and the Fays in their Class 7S. So what M.O.R.E. did was com-bine the two classes so they could have a class winner, as well as first out of the money would receive a free entry to the next race. The Bragg brothers took the class win as well as second overall. They turned fast lap of the race too. The Fay sisters brought their Ford Ranger around for a solid finish and they took home the free entry to the next race. Class 9, with nine cars taking April 1997 Kevin McGillivray and Jim Greenway took their neat looking Class 10 into the lead on the first lap and there they stayed for first overall and $1200 in winnings. Brad Inch's car finally gave him a win in the Roaring Resolution as he bested all comers in 1-2-1600. The Johnson guys put it all together and kept it together for the big Class 9 win in the biggest class of the race. the green flag, was the biggest class at the race. It was no surprise to see the Johnson brothers come out on top with a flawless run. The team took home over 1100 dollars and were real pleased with the M.O.R.E. organization. Not far behind was Sandy Parker who took second in Class 9, also hav-ing a clean run. Third was Dave Girdner who had troubles with his car the week before the race so he borrowed Jim Clements car so he could make the race. Dave had his grandson Davey ride with him, then iet k yan Shank and Stan Hignett take the last part of the race who made up some pretty good i:ime in the competitive class. Finishing less than a minute back was Darin McGuffin. Fifth was Michael Rix and tak-ing sixth was Danny Fox. Rodney Stoye completed five laps to take seventh, eighth was Robby Cock-roll and Mike Depue with Ross Andie and Matt Gumz co-driving. The team lost a tranny on lap 5 but did a pretty good job, consid-ering this was their first ever r,ace in their home built car they built themselves in their High School metal shop class. Brian Lopez and J.D. Ward had a ball joint and tranny problems take them out after lap 4. M.O.R.E.'s next race will be March 21 and 22. Dusty Times

Terrible's Town SNORI Bollom Dollar By John Calvin Photos: Trackside Photo Inc. Tim Scalzo and Casey Jones won Class 1 and Overall too as they ran five quick consistent laps and ended up at the checkers with five minutes in hand. The SNORE Bottom Dollar kicks off the racing season each year and the SNORE troops were out in force to get some season points under their belts from the first race of the year. Terrible's Town sponsored the race and provided an area for Technical Inspection and Contingency on race eve in the parking lot ofTer• rible's Town Casino & Bowl in beautiful downtown Henderson, Nevada. Contingency started at six p.m. and went on until nine. There was a goodly crowd of folks on hand before actual starting time and although the temperature was. dropping like the flag at sunset. there were a lot of spectators wandering around throughout the evening. Registration was in the Terrible's Casino/ Bowling Alley and some folks found it to be a nice respite from the chill outside. The drivers meeting was at eight o'clock on Saturday morn-ing and the drivers and crews from thirty nine cars all gathered around to get the latest scoop from SNORE President Joe Ross and the NEW Race Director Eric Shenberg~r. Eric is taking over from Bill Shapley who was the SNORE Race Director for about fifty years. Class 10 was first ott the line to run five laps of the thirty-two mile course in the Nelson Hills. JC Dean was first off the line in the seven car class and he set a pretty good pace, turning in a 46 minute lap, but disaster struck on the second lap, breaking a rear hub and rotor and that was the finish of the Gold Coast entry for this race. The rest of Class 10 all came around within a minute of each other, and the race was truly joined. Tim Scalzo and Casey Jones were the leaders after the second lap, just about a minute ahead of Jim Price and the rest of. Ken Flippin chased first place in Class 10 all race long but was only able to grab second place after a quick trouble-free run. The Goerke clan, shown here In full pursuit of the leader In Class 10 had a great day going 'ti/ they lost the clutch on lap five and ended up third In class. the pack were within a few min- utes on Ken Flippen who ran won-utes of the leader. Not much derfully consistent laps but missed changed after the third lap as the win. Third place went to the Casey and Tim still held the one· Goerke's, whose clutch went minute margin over P'rince. The south on the last lap, just short of end of lap four had Tim Price· in the finish but they crossed the the lead by almost five minutes as finish line. Steve Thompson and he set fast lap for the class at Wayne Lugo took fourth in Class 44:38. When the checkers flew it 10, twenty some odd minutes out was Casey and Tim back in the of first, and an unknown malady lead in just under four hours for on the last lap dropped Jim Price the day, and even with a flat and a to fifth place. Tom Sturgis only broken hea~er they held five min, finished three laps and the aforementioned JC Dean only got in one lap in the books. Robbie Guevara won Class 1-2-1600 by over twelve minutes, set class fast lap at 47:51 and outside of a broken header had no problems all day. Bryan Freeman drove Grampa's car and the youngster showed himself as a future winner, turning very quick laps, lost the clutch and st/II finished second in 1600. The next class to start was 1-2-1600 and there were ten of them there to contest for the points. Robbie Guevara was the first car off the line in class and Robbie went on to set fast lap for the class on that first lap, and he was never headed throughout the race, run-ning consistant laps and finishing in four hours and three minutes, some thirteen minutes ahead of second place. Robbie broke the exhaust on the last lap but came on in for the win. Congrats Rob-bie! Day Gang was second to go on the green but it was not her day, the car didn't run well and no amount of tweaking could cure it so Day ended up sixth in class, . almost an hour out of first place. Steve Thompson and Wayne Lugo had some terribly quick laps but a third lap flat threw them off their pace and they settled for fourth in Class 10. Page 26 Jim Price led three of the five laps, turned a sizzling 44:38 on lap four (fast lap of the race) but had a disastrous fifth lap and ended up fifth in Class 10. April 1997 Jeff Carr lost an alternator, got hit hard enough to roll the car but st/II got to the finish fourth in Class 1-2-1600. Dusty Times

Jay Shain ran some quick laps but not quick enough and was only able to garner fifth place in 1-2-1600 at the Bottom Dollar. Day Gang, the second female leadfoot in the Freeman clan did not have a good day: her engine never ran right, still she muscled her way into fifth in 1600. Randy Reid and Jason Romans had their troubles, (a rollover, no starter) but soldiered on to nab third in Class 9. Dan Bradley was next off the line but he too had a bad day with most of his laps in the one hour range, finishing all five in five hours and twenty-two minutes for a seventh in class. Jay Shain was next off and he too was rele-gated to laps in the mid to high fifties, salvaging a fifth place in 1600, forty-six minutes behind the leader. Matt Shephard was next to go but after a very long first lap they abandoned the chase. Kenny Freeman, Jr. was next up and he too had a miser-able day, with a two and a half hour fourth lap, finishing almost two hours behind the class leader. Bryan Freeman, son of Ken Jr. was the seventh 1600 to start and although he did his best to get in first place, he never got closer than two minutes behind Guevara. He lost the clutch on the last lap and took the checkered flag thir-teen minutes out of first. Good show! Jim O'Donnell and Jeff Lothringer turned fast consistant laps all day to end up Ryan Schank had some clutch problems, lost a brake line but set fast lap in two minutes out of second in 1-2-1600. Class 9 and took the win by less than a minute. Jim O'Donnell and Jeff Loth-ringer were the eighth car to start and they ran in third place all day, having no real problems but suf-fering from the dust quite a bit. They seemed quite happy with third in class, just two minutes out of second place. Fourth place in Class 1600 belonged to Jeff Carr. Jeff was only able to turn a few good laps as he had battery/ _ alternator problems, and he rolled the car too. Steve Meier-drecks and Matt Shephard were the other two starters, only get-ting in two laps and one lap respective! y. Class 9 showed up fourteen strong and it was a battle royal all day long. The nines only had to run four laps and they surely did run them! Ryan Schank was the tenth car off the line, set fast lap for the class on the first lap and precariously held onto the lead for all four laps. And, even though he had a clutch problem on the third lap and broke a brakeline, he finished the race in 3:48:49, fifth-six seconds ahead of the second place car. Brian Fieger was seventh off the line, chased Schank all day, lost third gear on the second lap and ended up fifty-six seconds in arrears. That's close! Third place was the realm of Randy Reid and Jason Romans. They rolled on the first lap, lost the starter (always fun) but sailed through the day with great lap times and finished two and a half minutes out of second. Earl West started fourth in Class 9 and that's where he finished. Earl ran well all day, had no major problems and finished less than two minutes out of third. Greg Anderson and Jimmy Hook were the last Class 9 to start, finished the first lap in fifth place and there they stayed, due in part to a fouled plug but they finished a mere three minutes and change out of fourth place. They both thank the Checkers for their help. Tom Brown, Kevin Steele, John Poling and Amanda Dixon were the other finishers in Class 9 'and yet another five cars either fin-ished only one lap or none at all. Class 5-1600 only had two entries for the Bottom Dollar and it was never even close, competi-tively. Dee Val Towles and Mike Johnson . .,-Dee Val Towles was going so fast we only caught part of his car as he motored into the finish line, taking a first in 5-1600.

The third place finisher was Bob Dziurawiec, who gave a spe-cial thanks to his "wife Suzie, and to all of his friends as well. Next up was the 5-1600 Class.

The Runner-up in class was Todd Wittman, who was· happy with his second place finish, after entering BS competition near mid-season. After leaping from a Superlite to a full-size truck, Wit-tman was able to score victories in four out of the five races he partic-ipated in. The soft-spoken talent with the brightest of futures ahead of him, thanked his mother Dee, and his wife Denise, as well as all those on hand. The third place in class went ot the other member of the racing McKenzie family, Sean McKenzie. Since his brother Jim hand thanked "all family and friends who supported me" in his speech, the often outlandish Sean simply thanked "everyone else". Class 9 was the next group honored, and winning the April 1997 "Championship" for the season was Dan Mustoe. Speaking of honor, Mustoe, who'd greatness of the track matches his on track talent, dedicated his series "Championship" to his fater, who passed away in September. He then presented his award to his mother and stated "I love you Mom". It was a very touching moment from a man who truly exudes class. Before closing, Mus-toe also thanked his girlfriend, Classic Imports, Dan and Sheryl Cannon, his friends, and even that wizard of words and master of metaphors, the "gent" who cov-ers Glen Helen's off road racing for The Dusty Times (Thanks Dan). Runner up in class went to the ever improving Arto Ylikan-gas, who gave thanks torus team, friends, family, partner Ken, and also Bob Beyer. Finishing third for the season was Dan Berry. photographers Cow Racing and Trackside, and several others. The runner-up in class was Clint Wolsey. The 1996 Odyssey "Class Champion" was Guy Savedra.

The second place racer was Stanley Bennett, while third for the sea-son went to Steve Scott. A TV -Pro was the next class to be honored, and the "Class Champion" was Steve Owens. Owens thanked "Bob and his guys", as well as "everyone here" for a great series. Second place for the year went to Eric Cobb. Rel uctan ti y, Cobb's father' accepted the second place award, on behalf of his son who he related is "recovering from surgery". Mr. Cobb thanked Eric's sponsors, and Bob Beyer "for giving them a place to run". Before exiting, Mr. Cobb explain-ed "that if Eric were present, he would want most of all to thank me" (his Dad). The seasons third place finisher was Adam Campbell. In Class 10/Super 1600, it was Gary Gall who captured the "Class Championship". Gall, one of the more polished drivers on the circuit, was followed in second place by runner-up Aaron Hawley, while third place went to Pat Dean. Next up was Class 11, and Dennis Sletten was crowned "Class Champion". Sletten, who termed racing at Glen Helen "a family thing", explained just how enjoyable racing there is. He thanked his kids, as well as Grey-hound (for shipping parts). Most of all though, he thanked his brother, the runner-up in class Robert Henderson, whom he stated was the only one "nuts" enough to get started racing with him. Next up was Mr. Henderson, who jokingly said "I don't know why he (brother Dennis) beat me". Henderson thanked among others, the Neese brothers, his team, Carl and also Bob Beyer. Third place for the season went to Jake Batulis. The Stock Mini 2WD Class Champion was Den-nis Beckwith. The Superlites "Class Cham-pion" was Rennie Awana. Awana had a terrific season, afternar-rowly missing last seasons title by a mere eight points. This year he would not be denied, and gave special thanks to Nature's Recipe and Mr. Beyer. Finishing in second place was Joe Price. Price, who is confined to a wheel chair, thanked everyone for supporting the series, and is truly an inspira-tion to both racers and fans alike. He may have placed second for the season, but to me and the scores of off road fans who've watched him compete, the man is a true "champion". The third spot in class went to Josh Hulse-bosch, who had won last years Odyssey "Class Championship". Hulsebosch thanked his Mom and Dad for their support, also Peter Kay, and Bosch and Cagles Appliance. Scoring her second consecutive Pilot "Class Championship"' was Denise Wittman. The transfor-mation that takes place, when this stunning beauty climbs into her race vehicle, is shocking. The other half of "Team Wittman" (along with husband Todd) is oh so sweet when not on the course, but once on the track, there is no more fierce competitor than this ultra-talented young lady. Wit-tman gave thanks for her excep-tional season to the Lord, her mother-in-law Dee, husband Todd, Woody, Art, Guy, Angie, Bob and crew, Tim of Sign Pros, The final class to receive awards was the ATV-Intermediates. Tak-ing the "Class Championship" for the season was Richard Yak-key. Y akkey seemed to get better as the series progressed, and really finished the year strong. Yakkey kept his speech" short and sweet" and thanked the Glen Helen folks for providing "a place to race". He also thanked his "friends" and looked forward to seeing eve-ryone "next year". Second place for the season was Chris Alva-rado. The series' third spot went to ScottLeTourneau, who thank-ed "family and friends", and also the Glen Helen crew. Fourth for the year was Bmz Clucas, while the season's fifth spot went to Cory Clarizio. Clarizio a lso thanked his" family and friends", as well as, his crew, Roll Design, and all "volunteers". The final award presented, was for the coveted "Racer of the Year". Taking this most presti-gious honor was the pride of Riv-erside, Steve Bishop. Bishop was quick to give credit for his bril-liant season, to the man who he succeeded in earning this title, Dan Mathews, Bishop stated that Mathews "really made him work for it", and that he "wanted it bad". Bishop also mentioned the consistent and improved perfor-manced of Sean Ziegert, as having pushed him to winning this award. Finally, he stressed the importance of not scoring any DNFs, and credited Goodyear . tires for helping see that he had none. The ever eloquent Mr. Bob Beyer brought a close to the pro-ceedings, by thanking everyone for their contributions to the just concluded season, and also for their having attended the awards ceremony. I would like to join Mr. Beyer in his final wish, that everyone enjoys "the very best of luck in the 1997 season". It's now official, '96 is hostory, and by the time you read this, the wild ritle towards 1997's dass champion-ships will already be underway. Let's not miss any of the thrills in the upcoming months ahead, as both the weather and the points chase begin to heat up. Speed safely, and I'll see you at the races. Dusty Times

FRT KING OF THE DESERT Wehe Docs It Again By Judy Smith 28:49 for the 30 miles. In second it was Todd Barnhill, in a Rabbit powered Raceco, who'd already had a flat and lost his power steer-ing. Travis Brookshire was third in an A-armed Jimco, with a 1776cc VW motor, and then it was Steve Mamer in another "' 1776cc powered Jimco. They were all within two minutes and 20 seconds. But Mamer's car gave up on the second lap. Wehe continued to lead, but now Brookshire was in second place and Barnhill third after some time in the pits to fix the power steering. On the third lap it was still Wehe, and Brookshire held second, with Barnhill a close third. Wehe stopped and took on a full load of gas at the beginning of his fourth lap, remembering the New Year's Eve race when he nearly lost because he ran out of gas. Brookshire put his brother, Ron, in for the last two laps, and Todd Barnhill had power steering problems that cost him some time but he still managed second in Class 10. Andy Wehe showed them all the way in his Jimco as he dominated Class 10 and took the overall as well in the FUD King Of The Desert last February in the California lower desert. Andrew Wehe took his Class 10 J imco racing in the desert east of San Diego and won the FR T King of the Desert event overall. When the FR T marks the course for the King of the Desert event, they throw in a section of short course type obstacles for the last mile or so of the loop. Built on the dry lake, the short course con-sists of a couple of flying jumps, one tricky double jump, some hair J.,in turns, a couple of patches of moguls, and a big hole with a kicker and a jump on the exit. All this is great fun for the spectators and pit crews who have excellent seating around the perimeter of the dry lake. 12 noon start. The Class 10 cars took off first, and at the end of the first lap it was Wehe in front with . the fast lap of the day, a quick Barnhill kept motoring along. W ehe had 12 minutes on Brookshire at the end of lap four, and he'd made only two stops, once for gas and once to work a cramp out of his leg. He confessed that he hadn't worked on the car since the New Year's race. But apparently, it hadn't needed any work, because it just ran smoothly to the finish, and W ehe got his Class 10 win as well as the overall victory. Brookshire got to the finish area next, running a solid second, and then made a major error. When he got to the table-top jump, nearly at the end of the short course, and in sight of the checkered flag, he hit it a bit too fast, sailed clear over, landed like a javelin, n.ose buri.ed in the dirt, and then iJT All told it was a 150 mile race, with five 30 mile loops, character-ized as fast by the folks who'd pre-run. The weather was mild and cloudy as the cars lined up for the Chuck Hovey had a perfect day in the Raceco as he breezed along in first in Class 1 all race long and finished a fine second overall. Greg Harrold and Randy Brossart had a great day, led Class 5-1600 every lap and reported no troubles during their five laps. ~BILSTEIN'S ~ BUILDABLE SHOCKS 14" Rebuildable w/reservoir 12" Rebuildable w/reservoir 1 0" 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 :Jl,in,ety0tt,e «Xu-nvwa Set:,i,e,o 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 VALVING l(ITS • REBUILD l(ITS • SEALS • ROOS Dusty Times MOGI AUTO TAANSAXLE SPECIALS: Winter's Shifters 210.00 O,r Pr1i,ef Li,11 Ar1 ...

Travis and Ron Brookshire were second in Class 10 for a while but fell to third after a disaster just before the checkers. The Pates, father and son had a delightful race, traded 1600 for Class 1, enjoyed all that Type IV power and ran second all day with no problems. Brent Strait took over third place in Class 1 on the third lap and that's where he finished, a couple of minutes out of second. Dave Brigman and Marvin Osgood were not happy campers as they only got in two laps before retiring from the race. tumbled over and over. The car ended up on its wheels and stalled, and when the groggy Brookshire tried to restart it, it wouldn't go. And while he and his crew tried to figure out what was wrong, along came Barnhill to take second place. The Brookshire crew finally had to give up and push the car, which sported a snapped lower A-arm brace, to the line for the third place finish. The Unlimited class cars had been second off the line, and in this group Chuck Hovey had his 2800cc powered Raceco in front, with the fast lap for this class, at 29:33 for the lap. He was finding the course very dusty, and was driving blind a lot. In second place it was Bill Pate, out for his first trip in an unlimited car. He'd recently purchased the Steve Sou-ra pas RCD, with a Type IV motor, and was having a blast. He's been driving a 1600 car for a couple of years. In third it was Mike Hart and Rob Ranallo in a Funco, and Brent Miller and Steve Wright ran fourth in their Raceco. Hovey, whose car is a bit on the elderly side, really wanted to chase Wehe, but wasn't sure his car would last ifhe ran it that hard for five laps. So he cooled it a bit, running just fast enough to stay in front of his class. He still had his lead at the end of the second lap, and now was about three minutes in front of Pate. Miller and Wright had moved up to third, and now Hart and Ranallo were · fourth. At the end of the third lap it was still Hovey, who was having what he called a "very good, unevent-ful" race. He stopped once for fuel, and had no flat tires. Pate still 199'7lFO~ F'-:ino WI'X.lfI S:P.A"R.:E: E::J!lifG-~. '.I"IC.A1V1S:JIIIISSION"., a.rd :Jlil:El:11.CBE::R. .A.1.!il-:D lll:olR...tb;..

And now Brent Strait was third in his Raceco/ -Foddrill, with a 2851cc motor. He'd been lost right off the start, and had also had a couple of flats. Hart and Ranallo held fourth, and Miller and Wright were out. Hovey held his pace and stayed healthy, to go on for the win, and a fine second overall. Pate put his dad, Bill Sr., in the car for the last two laps, and he decided that the big motor would go faster than he wanted to go. Nonetheless, the Pates were second, followed in by Strait, who was delighted to fin-ish, in third. Hart and Ranallo were fourth and Josh Waddell, in a 2100cc Goodsell, finished fifth, after a tough first and second lap. His throttle stuck for the whole first lap, and his radio fell off also. Then his roof came off on the second lap, and he had to replace a throttle spring, but after that the race went all right and he got his finish. Larry Kern and Adam Pfankuch shot into the early lead in Class 9 and there they stayed, taking the win by about fifteen minutes. 2400ccs for two seaters, was next for their own class points. There was one Class 8 truck at this event, but the Chevy truck, driven by Pete Blood, managed to complete only one lap. off the line.

No one else in the class was still running. By the end of the fourth bp the Kerns has 11 minutes on Landry, and he had nine minutes on the Hargraves. And they ran like that to the finish line, with the Kerns, hoth teenagers inciden-tally, taking the win. Landry took second place with his 1600 two seat car, and the Hargroves were third. McAllester and Plunkett finished fourth, about three and a half minutes later after a fine last lap. Class 9 took the green flag next, and it was another teenage team, this time Larry Kern and Adam Pfankuch, who took the early lead. They had their Kernco three minutes in front, with a time of 36:38, fast time for the class. It was Hal and Kevin Graves in second, Kevin at the wheel of the Dusty Times

Pete Blood took the big Chevy out in Class B but only comp-leted one lap before falling off the face of the race. Eric Deen had a trouble free day, chased first place all five laps but was in second place when the checkered flag waved. Rich Flores with dad Rick riding shotgun were the third place finishers in Class 5-1600 after suffering some clutch problems in the neat looking bug. Jimco, and three minutes in back of the lead car. Tom Preston and Robert Gillingham ran third in their Chenowth, and Zeke Zabrowski and John Castillo had their Suspensions Unlimited in fourth. Pfankuch, 16 years and Kern, 1 7 years, continued to lead, with the Graves close in second at the end of the second lap. Preston and Gillingham were still third, but lost their motor on the third lap. That moved Zabrowski and Cas-tillo into third at the end of the third lap. And no other cars were running. It was a duel between Kern and Pfankuch and the Graves car, but the teens retained their slim lead. Zabrowski and Castillo ran third, about 40 min-utes off the pace after losing third gear and spending some time in their pit trying to fix it. At the end of the fourth lap the Kern/Pfankuch team had three and a half minutes on Graves. Kevin Graves decided he prob-ably couldn't catch them no mat-ter what, so he took the time for a driver change, to give his dad, Hal, a chance to have some fun. But it wasn't Hal's lucky day. A rear shock bolt broke and that made a big difference in the handling of the car. Not quite sure what was wrong, Hal slowed, to preserve both the car and his backside. Kern and Pfankuch took the win by 15 minutes, and the Graves preserved their second place. It was nearly 50 minutes before Zabrowski and Castillo got to the finish line. In the 5-1600 cars the first lap lead belonged to Greg Harrold, who got lost off the start. He had Randy Brossart, the car's new owner, riding in the passenger seat, and pre-running. Their first lap time was the quick time for the class, at 30: 17. Eric Deen was running second, about four minutes later, with Rich Flores in third, his dad, Rick, riding in the passenger seat. Crecencio Cortez, Juan Guillen and Daniel Flores ran fourth. Harrold continued to lead through lap two, with Deen run-ning strong in second and the Flores team in third. And they went the same way through the third lap. Then it was time for changing seats. Brossart moved into the driving seat while Har-rold rode, and in the Flores car, Rick took over the driving while Rich rode. It was still Brossart and Harrold in front at the end of the fourth lap, and now they had 13 minutes on Deen, who had 11 minutes on the Flores team. No one else was still running. And at the finish line it was Harrold and Brossart in front. Brossart, who has moved up from Quad racing, was pleased Dusty Times to get a win in only his second car race. Deen who reported no trou-ble at all, finished second, fol-l owed in by the Flores team, who'd had to readjust their clutch and let some air out of their tires. There was only one small truck at the KOO, and David Brigman and Marvin Osgood didn't have a very successful day in their Toy-ota. They managed only two laps, one very lengthy, and then were done for the day. The racing was over by the time the sun had set, and the FR T was already looking forward to their next event, the Marth 29th Buzz Bomb 150 at Plaster City East.

1996 California Rally Series Awards By Robert T allini the top finishers were made up of_ teams that ran all year together. In fact, the '96 Stock Class season turned out to be one of the hottest battles of the year. Pete Morris, driver and ~ teammate Eric Oyague wound up Third in class. This team is composed of experienced rallyist Pete and rookie Eric. They showed flashes of brilliance this season and I suspect they will put their experience to good use in '97.

They both finished the year Second in the class. Their KIA won two • events in '96 and stunned everyone with their overall win at Gorman. This year's Performance Stock Champions were Robert Tallini and Steve Scott~ They worked hard all year to secure the class title with one race left in the season. After their win at Rim of the World the two raced smart to defend their points lead and win Performance Stock Class. The proceedings broke away from the class awards to present the Kenneth Zimmerman Award. Chad DiMarco presented the award to someone who gives as unselfishly to rally as the late Dr. Zimmerman had done in the past. This cherished award went to a long overdue Lon Peterson. Lon has long given to the sport on every level and contributed in ways that most people don't know. He is looked up to by all in the sport and is truly an outstanding choice for the Zimmerman Award. The ceremony continued with the final class awards of the night, Two,Wheel Drive Open. Fourth place awards went ot Mick Kilpatrick for driver and John Elkin for co,driver. Mick raced on a couple of events but John ran with Tony Chavez who was very fast this year but had lots of trouble finishing rallies. John would have finished much better had they not DNFed so often. They were very fast in '96. Third place was Chris Brad, shaw as navigator and Bill Holmes as driver. Chris navigated with Mick and filled in with Robert Tallini at Reno. He did a great job. Bill Holmes returned to rally after many years away from the sport. He won Rim of the World in the Ford Truck and led the points for the class. He did not compete in any other events. First and second place on the year saw a battle of the Scandin, avian cars. George Pisek and Mark Rathsam's Saab started the year well but had mechanical woes near the end. This left the door wide open for the '96 Champions, Bill Malik and Farina O'Sullivan. The Volvo had what it took to win '96 for both driver Bill and navigator Farina. They are incredibly fast and deserving of the Championship. · The ceremony changed gears and the lights dimmed. Ray Hocker began the slide presenta, tion which looked back at the 20 years of the California Rally Series. The slides, set to music, brought back many memories from past years of Rallying. Old faces and cars were brought back to like fin the hundred of so slides Ray had compiled. It was a great presentation and one that everyone enjoyed. As it grew late in the evening, one award was left to be presented. This award is a tradition in CRS and no one starts the season hoping to win it.

46TH INTERNATIONAL SWEDISH RALLY The Scandinavians Continue To Win In Sweden Text & Photos: Martin Holmes Despite countless predictions to the contrary, the Scandinavian drivers monopoly of the Swedish Rally continued with Kenneth Eriksson's win on the 46th event in the series. Subaru gained their fourth world championship rally in a row with a different driver, beating their r~gular driver Colin McRae, and Tommi Makinen was the fastest car over the stages, but his hopes were dashed by three spins and, he had an 80 second penalty for delay in a service park, which put him down to third. The Major shock was the weather. Really it was too good! The Swedish Rally, the second. round in the world champion-ship, attracted a remarkably high number of top level drivers. Of the 81 crews due to take the start, PRECISI exactly one-third of the drivers had priority status from the FIA. While Manufacturers points were again to be taken only by Subaru and Ford, World Rally cars, and the Group A Mitsubishi Evolu-tion IV cars, this time there was also a strong back up field. Heading the 'non-manufact-urers' field were four Toyota Cel-icas driven by Thomas Radstrom, Tomas Jansson, the young driver Mats Thorszelius, and the Finnish champion Marcus Gronholm, who two weeks before had won the Arctic Rally, the opening round of the European Rally Ser-ies. The big shock in sports minded Sweden was that the man who won at Monte Carlo and leads the World Championship wouldn't be taking part. Engaged lil4'DJ • Largest Selection Of Roden & Spberica ..

A late disappointment was that the Toyota of four times world champion Juha Kankkunen did not take the start. H.F. Grifone had made an entry at the last moment in hopes a plan could be arranged, but ultimately it couldn't. The high speed nature of the stages gave the advantage to more powerful cars in W2L but never count the Skodas out despite their smaller'engines. They had a 1-2 win at Monte Carlo, but Emil Triner had his third co-driver in as many events. The organizers said the strength of the ice on lakes was good for those stages. Because of the lack of snow this year they were thinking of chang-ing the Karlstad superspecial stage route to have more of the route on ice and less on land. The problem was serious as every day during training there was less snow and many stages had long stretches of gravel. Once again studs were expected to be the name of the technical game. The coldness isn't the most significant factor, more important is the way the Scandin-avian weather can change in temperature by a great amount and very quickly. Tommi Mak-inen explained. "No snowbanks means the roads will be wider and therefore faster. When the snow-banks are big•t is important to keep the car in the ruts, but the Mitsubishi was a narrow car and it was always good in the ruts. But this year wide track cars will go better. Certainly I think these conditions should be fairer to the different types of cars." Leg l and finally the show was on the road, or more correct! y, on the ice. The stage started at six o'clock, in reverse order, and remarkable crowds came to watch. Karlstad itself has a popu-lation of 50,000 with another 25.000 in Country areas nearby. Official attendance figures said 25,000! Several drivers had mis-Kenneth Eriksson drove the Subaru lmpreza to the overall victory in the 46th International Swedish Rally, Putting Subaru in a nice first place in manufacturers points. firing troubles after the endless water splashes round the route, but otherwise nothing untoward happened. Makinen and Rad-strom tied equal first, Jonas Kruse's Renault was four seconds faster than the next best W2L car (Svan's Opel), while in Group N Stig-Olaf Walfridsson and Joha· Kangas were equal, both in Mit-subishis. It was all good fun! But, the real rally was about to start next morning. A half hour before dawn the cars left Karlstad for the main road run to Hagfors and the first two stages of the day. The ground was brown not white, but the sky was clear and soon it was sunny as well. While the fields were com-pletely bare of snow, many of the roads were covered by icy patches, and walking around was treacherous. Without warning you would be on sheet ice. It was unknown territory for the com-petitors as well, and the world of stud retention became the most important factor of the event. The only driver out of salt~ was our 50 year old Suzuki driving friend. He arrived at the restart too late and was excluded from the event. There were eight stages in the day, and there were four different leaders, all driving different makes of car. Joint overnight leader Radstrom pulled into a clear lead on the first stage but fell back on the longer stage 3, when Sainz went ahead. Sain: slid into a ditch on stage 4 and fell back to third place, letting Eriksson go ahead. Makinen went in front on stage 6 for two stages but fell hack to third with stud trouble on the Ion ( 44km) stage when Eriksson !ff/lF""' went into the lead. However, after the delay leaving the Service Park at the end of the day, Makinen was down to fifth. At the night halt, Subaru and their Pirelli tires, were lying one-two, third was Sainz, and fourth, the best non-professional entry was the Toyota of Radstrom. While Subaru enjoyed their night's sleep at Borlange, it had been a day of strange fortunes for their rivals. Other than the stud problem Mitsubishi's single car for Makinen had no trouble until the evening service at Borlange. At the day's final Service Park they were about to send Makinen to the out control when the champion found he could not select any gears. Eventually he left eight minutes late (lm20s penalty). Uwe Nittel was on his first winter rally in the Group A Evolution III and impressed his masters. Ford, however, had many little troubles. It seemed like a better het for the long stage 8, and Sain: made a bad choice of tires for stages 6-7, opting for GA type (like Mitsubi-shi were using) instead of the G60. He wanted on-event exper-ience of the GA in these condi-tions, just in case it proved a win-ning trick later on. Schwar: slid off on stage 2 and damaged the rear suspension in the process. "I had been looking at the lines of the others, they had been off and on the track all the time with impunity. The one time I try to do that I hit a rock!" Then he had hrake problems with the car, and finally the handling of the car went all wrong on stage 9. "Des-pite the brake problem we did <41~"' , . ; , . . WW · :~• • . • •• - .

well on stage 8, and then lost it all in the stadium stage in Falun!" Private Fords were not going well. K ytolehto retired at the start of stage 4 with engine trouble. The butterfly control in the injec-tor had broken and a piece had been ingressed by the engine at the end of the second stage. Blom-qvist, in his Michelin-liveried Escort, was well off the pace, say-irig that the gear ratios were hope-less for the conditions, while Mats Jonsson, the man who had won the rally in a Toyota, was gradu-ally learning how to drive an Escort. The Toyota team were pleased with Radstrom, although Jonsson lost a half minute with a spin. Gronholm lost a quarter minute with a failed water injection sys-tem while Mats Thorszelius had shock absorber mounting prob-lems which cost him 50 seconds in road position. The big excite-ment was Radstrom's third best time on the stage, the best effort by Michelin. Studs and their length was the topic as the cars came in . Keeping the studs intact was the talk after the 44km stage. Group N was again a Mitsubi-shi walkover: the top eight at Bo"r-lange were Lancer Evolution cars, the top three being Scandinavians and fourth was Gustavo T relies, whose teammate Manfred Stohl was an impressive sixth on his first major winter event. In W2L the overnight leader wasJonasson ahead of Kruse: the top four crews were separated by 35 seconds. Svan was the fastest driver of the day but lost two minutes with a puncture on his Astra, which was on its sixth successive Swedish Rally. The only problem reported by Skoda (lying just out of the points in seventh and eighth) was a broken exhaust for Pavel Sibera while fifth place Tapio Lauk-kanen (VW) who hoped to rally wffh Lappi, used Michelins which went off after ten kilometers each stage. Henry Joki overturned his VW and lost seven minutes. Things were quite different on leg 2. Snow was lying an inch deep on the streets ofBorlange, and the prospects of a Subaru win, when faced with tackling the stages as the first two cars on the road, seemed to be fading. Mitsubishi were conscious of their serious problem the night before, when Makinen clocked out of the Ser-vice Park only two minutes before he would have been excluded for excess delay. They still had not finished the job it started with a routine gearbox change, but the new unit was faulty. They fixed it well enough to drive the car to the pare ferme and finished next morning and lost no more time. The temperature inexorably rose, snow turned to sleet and to steady rain. There continued to be amazing reliability among the top runners. Even by evening only one car seeded among the top 25 numbers was missing! Eriksson continued to lead for two stages as the snow turned to rain, but then had the gearbox start jumping out of sixth gear. He said "Conditions were slushy, and visibility was poor due to spectators fires and the mist and it was difficult to see where there was ice beneath the water on the road." Sainz, run-ning third car on the road, started the day 25 seconds behind the leader and ended up in the lead with 12 seconds advantage over McRae and another 15 on Eriks-son. Pirelli people put a brave face on their reversal of fortunes. "It is a pity that Subaru never tested their car in muddy conditions before the event ( when has the Swedish ever been muddy before?) but at least we lost no studs all day." They were silent about the misfortunes of their second WCR driver Nittel, who had two punctures and no EMI mousse inserts. Everything went well for Ford. Sainz admitted "We have learned a lot in the past 24 hours. We used GA tires and our testing yesterday had been useful." Schwarz had brake fade troubles, but nothing else adverse. Makinen had a good day but Nittel's punctures cost towards five minutes. Radstrom's Toyota hit a rock, which Makinen also touched; the Celica driver had to live with a bent rear chassis from there on. Jonasson still headed W2L, his car using a borrowed Lehmann engine for this eve·nt. "Our only problem was on the very wet stages, when the windscreen vis-ibility was impaired by misting"; Kruse's Maxi Megane went off twice and retired while Svan pressed hard in his aged Opel with the engine misfiring part of the time. Third place in W2L was Toni Gardemeister's Nissan, run-ning normally on Black Rocket tires, on only his second rally out-side his native Finland, ahead of Loukkanen who was still un-happy about _his tire availability. Skodas were lying fifth (Emil Triner who also had a broken exhaust) and Sibera just in front of Alister McRae, who had trou-bles the entire event. In Group N Backlund's domi-nation continued despite o ne puncture, while Kangas fell back to third on slower stages in the afternoon, which the Swedish drivers knew well. The girl driver Pernilla Walfridsson retired after a crash, keeping up with a tradi-tion on this event of unlucky drivers who had famous parents. lngvar Carlson's son Patric and Bo Thorszelius' son Mats had all gone off the road. What a day on Leg 3! Three different leaders in the first three stages. The stages were harder, Pirelli faces began to smile again, and Makinen gave himself the mission of trying to recover more of the time lost at Borlange. In the end the world champion came third, 26 seconds behind the winner. In the pressure of the morning McRae had a double spin on stage 22, lost a half min-ute, and any chance of a win. (He had also spun on stage three, two days before, an incident which the television in-car camera explained in detail!) Sainz was worrying all the time about his tires. He tried G60, then went back to GA but he could not match the speed of Makinen, who also ran GA but who had the advantage of running further back. "l actually felt positive when we restarted again today," Eriks-son said afterwards: "We had only lost an average of S seconds per stage in the unfavorable con-ditions: we knew we should be competitive in these conditions." Four drivers started the day with hopes of winning. For Makinen the options were easy to define: "It all depended on the weather. Pirelli is much better in hard con-ditions than Michelin. The surfa-ces were hard." On the day's second stage McRae passed Sainz into the lead: on the third stage Eriksson was three seconds in front of McRae: on the fourth stage McRae dropped to fourth and effectively the rally was over. In Group N Kenneth Backlund started the day with a tire choice error on the first two stages, giv-ing Walfridsson dreams of catch-• Toni Gardemeister in the Nissan Sunny pierce the dark-ness at speed: alas, engine problems forced his retirement.
