Trail Notes ... SCORE PRI~M 300 --With warm temperatures and a good breeze the SCORE Prnnm 300 was run in good fashion and in good time too. Cun LeDuc was first off t_he line in the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trophy Truck and he ended up with first TT and the Overall as well. Curt is looking at an undefeated season and it is well within the realm of possibility. Second ~cross the finish line was Mike Julson, driving his own Crear10n, a J1mco and he was Aying too, finishing the course in five hours and seven minutes. Third overall, first in Class 10 went to Bill Hernquist and fourth overall, first in Class 8 went to Brian Collins, his first victory in the Chevy truck. Other winners at the Primm were Brad Maurer in 1/2-1600. George Seeley who captured Class 5, Chevy scoring another win in Class 7 with Larry Roeseler in the stirrups, Darrin Skilton in the Kia in Class 3, Eric Pavelka in Class 5-1600, Don McCarthy in Class 7S, Lobsam Yee from Mexicali in Class 9, Victor Barajas in Class 11, Robert Haley in Stock Full, John Kearney in Stock Mini, Steve Barlow in a Ford Protruck and last bur not Least, Danny Anderson and Rob MacCachren in the Class 12 SCORE Lites. The course was rough, there was lots of dust ant silt, ·there some hitting in the blinding silt and lots of rollovers, but there were no serious injuries and most all we talked to had a good rime, win lose or DNF. · The fourth race of the SCORE '97 series will be the Baja 500, June 6, 7 and 8 111 Ensenada for another round of fun and frolic. CHOINIERE WINS IN WASHINGTON -- Paul Choiniere continued his winning ways in the Wild West Rally in Olympia, Washington with Jeff Becker riding shotgun, they defeated the second place team by over six and ~ ~alf minutes. This is Choiniere's first national victory in a Hyu1:da1 Tiburon. They won the Doo Wop Pro Rally some weeks before and from the looks of it, Libra Racing is going to have a very successful year. (See Story Page 22) GLEN HELEN -ROUND THREE --Glen Helen Round Three took place on April 13 ar rhe newly named Glen Helen Raceway and the usual gang had themselves a good day of racin'. Scott Akerly rook Class 1, Chad Gall won Super 1600, Class 9 belonged to Dan Mustoe, Tim Highfill got rhe gold in C lass 5, 5-I 600 was the showplace of David Anckner, Steve Bishop took his thousandth something win in Class 10, Raul Flores took rhe Class 7 win. Bill Barnes took Stock Mini 2WD, Class 75 saw Rick Huseman raking the checkers and Class 85 belonged to Dan Cannon in some really tight competition. (See full story next month.) SAAB SPONSORS PRO RALLY TV --Saab Cars USA will sponsor rhe first two SCCA Pro Rallies which will be shown on ESPN2. For all of us rally fans here is the PRO Rally coverage schedule as we know it. Wild West, May 3, 7:00 p.m. and May 19, 4:00 a.m. -Rim ofrhe World, June 1, 7:30 p.m. and June 4 , 2:00 a.m. -Susquehannock Trail, June 29, 8:30 p.m. and July l, 3:30 a.m. -Maine Forest, August 17, 3:30 p.m. and August 20 2:00 a.m. - Lake Superior, November 9, 7:30 p.m. and November 13, 2:00 a.m. -Maine Winter, December 27, 1 :00 p.m. and December 29, 1 :00 a.m. Consult your local directory as we're not sure if these are Pacific Times or Eastern. PERRIS CANCELS OFF ROAD SERIES -- Perris Auto Speedway announced that they were cancelling the balance of the '97 Stadium Off Road Racing Series because oflack of entry. Ir always pains us when a series fails, either short course or in the desert because we know of the time and effort involved to get a series moving and if you can't get enough cars and trucks to make it worthwhile you're out of business. Perris Speedway however remains open and racing other venues of cars, Sprints etc., so get on down there and support them in their "Non Off Road Racing" schedule. SCORE RELOCATION --SCORE has left their long rime home in Las Vegas. They are now searching for adequate facilities on the Los Anqeles area. Sal Fish explained that because they (SCORE) now have no employees in the Las Vegas area it makes sense· to relocate their offices to an area more suitable to their existing staff, all of whom live in the southern California area. Phone number and FAX currently are: (818) 397-2863 and FAX (818) 340-5442. Temporary mailing address is: 22287 Mulholland Highway, Suite 405, Calabasas, CA 91302. When permanent quarters are established we will publish address and new phone numbers if applicable. IVANS NEW TOY --The brand new Toyota TlOO VS engine has undergone much testing on the dyno and in the desert and Ivan Stewart is rarin' to go with it. The VS replacement engine develops over 500 horsepower and is scheduled for Ivan to drive in the Baja 500 and the 1000 in November. "With every second of test time I get, I become . more confident" says Ivan, reacting to the increase of over 150 horsepower over the V6. The V8 engine will be available in the TlOO production Toyota truck in the fall of 1998. MORE SCORE/SNORE --Due to circumstances beyond their control, SCORE has been forced to move their Laughlin date and the only date acceptable to the Laughlin people is September 26 and 27. Unfortunately, that is the date used by SNORE for the past 28 years for the infamous SNORE 250. Both SCORE and SNORE have assured us that they are working on a solution that would be acceptable to all. Stay tuned, film at eleven. Page 4 1997 Happenings ...

News status of Millican Valley OHV Area By Terry Silbaugh, Central Oregon Desert Racing Association Well, the Millican Valley ORV Management Plan is finally out and we are mad. After six years of attending meetings to give our in-put, which is what the B.L.M. said they wanted, we have not been given much of anything to use. They gave us only three months in which to get in a season of racing, eliminated many miles of trails, and want to spend $1. 24 million to do it. In short, we have been given the shaft. I know most of the COD RA members and many oth-ers have received the plan and have read for themselves so I won't go into any more detail. As a racer/ promoter and casual rider, I am upset. As a taxpayer I am insulted and will not take this lying down. ~e are going to appeal the deci-sion. They rook the first shot and won round one. For round two, the B.L.M. went to the Oregon ATV June 1997 Funding Committee and re-quested $89,000 of OUR money to make what they are trying to have us believe would be improve-ments to OUR area. Well, we also went tot he funding committee meeting and told our side. With us were representatives from most area ATV-OHV and racing orga-nizations. We won round two, the B.L.M. did not get a nickel. Round three will be the formal appeal process. We have a lot of support from the mentioned groups as well as the casual riders . I am also going to ask the Blue Ribbon Coalition to help us. To help them help us, it would be a very wise move for each of us to join the Blue Ribbon Coalition. You can get membership info from most motorcycle shops. To quote a famous rock star, Ted Nugent, in a statement he made recently in Washington, D.C., P.O.

I know many of you wrote to the B.L.M. about your concerns for Millican Valley. They received over 100 letters of support for keeping the valley the way it has been for 30 years. They did take note and from what I hear, we were a real pain in their side. They ig-nored the users and went with the wishes of the in-house environ-mentalists within their own office. They have already spent many thousands of our taxpayer dollars to make their phony studies with phony results. OK, now it's time to write again, stating your feelings about the de-cision. You don't have to though, that is if you are satisfied with loos-ing the only ORV area in the northwest where we can race. If you choose to write (be nice, don't cuss) you can do so to the follow-ing address: Bureau of Land Man-agement, Prinevillle District Of-fice, P.O. Box 550, Prineville, OR 97754. Make them Attn.: Area Manager Jim Kenna. Thanks for your continued sup-port. See you at the next race ... WE WILL RETURN TO MILLICAN VALLEY. Dusty Times

IF YOU NOTICE A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT LOOK TO DUSTY TIMES this month it's because of the saga of the fried typesetter. Last month, along with other losses, we suffered the terminal demise of our 1981 vintage typesetting machine just days before the deadline for the May issue. Having experienced a loss of the availability of the photographic paper and the chemicals to process it over the last few months we could see the handwriting on the wall that O',lr system of production was numbered and we had already started investigating the changeover to computer. Now, all of a sudden, we had to complete the research of the· availability not only of the hardware, but the software system as well, chat we would use to replace the old typesetting machine, and had only a few days to do so. The possibilities are not endless, however, and after limited research we decided on a Windows 95 basic computer with all the bells and whistles and the Pagemaker 6.5 publishing p~ogram. This is a far cry from the old CPM Z90 based computer that was the driving source for our old typesetter. We were able to put together a system sufficient enough to get the last issue out (although even the page numbers were made up of five pieces of glued down bits), but composing a complete issue from scratch and learning the Pagemaker program was another matter. Shortly following the printing of the May issue we fired up chis muchly touted Pagemaker 6.5 program and began the process of. learning the typesetting game all over again. The new system is far superior to the old but the learning curve is a long and gradual one. At first we were only able co produce type for proofing but as the month wore on we picked up a little knowledge day by day and this issue is the first ever produced entirely with no paste up of type. We're still producing the photos on a process camera but should we learn co produce them without a loss of the quality our readers have come to expect, even those will be computer generated. We've tried co match the typefaces used for the lase 14 years as close as possible, but some are not exact and the overall effect will not change and probably will not be noticed but for chose of you familiar with the many varieties of type available. We have the intent to keep the look of the publication the same as it has always been, as chis is part of what DUSTY TIMES is and any changes made are only due co necessity. FINAL WORD -- I am not trying co belabor the subject but I have to give my heartfelt thanks to everyone who offered me comfort and help during the last month and I am at a loss to express my feelings co all of you who cared so much. I could name names but chat would be unfair to chose I may have overlooked ~o you all know who you are and please accept my thanks, and Jean's coo for all the wonderful years we all shared in love and friendship and above all in racing competition.

TARGA MUFFLER 13220 J-IALLDALE AVENUE GARDENA, CA 90249· 310-217-9233 WHOLESALE ONLY DEALER INQUIRIES INVITED Kyle Taylor and JP Galloway didn't let the sagebrush grow under them as they raced to the overall victory in the Tonopah 300, surviving a flat and a broken A-arm for the big win and Class B honors too in the good looking Chevy. If you look at the map of Ne-vada you can see beautiful down-town Tonopah just north of Gold-field on Highway 95 and the town of around three thousand souls is more or less THE main watering hole on the schlep between Vegas and Reno as you wend your way through some of the most desolate yet beautiful country to be found within our borders. Why did Casey Folks pick Tonopah? Well, within its confines he found people who welcomed his style of off road rac-ing, people he could talk to and who would listen and who would cooperate with Best In The Desert Racing to make the race beneficial for Casey, Tonopah and of course, the drivers. This first of three races in '97 for Best In The Desert was smoothly executed for all the par-ticipants and although Mother Nature worked her bad magic on Contingency day, she smiled on race day and a truly good time was had by all. Thirty six cars in nine different classes took the green flag on a very chilly but clear and calm morning in Tonopah on Easter Saturday to attack the three hundred mile course that ran in a big loop mostly to the west and south ofTonopah. There were seven checkpoints and six designated gas stops on the The brothers Stiles and their Raceco were looking for first overall but some bothersome flats held them to second, still they took first in Class 1 honors. The Mirage of Danny Anderson and Rob MacCachren was airborne a lot during the Tonopah 300, taking Class 1 0 easily and finishing third overall. course. The race started up in the hills on the western side of Tonopah, at the end of the pave-ment at the intersection of Idaho Circle and Victoria Street, and we all hope that the people who live in the houses there were not too pu~ out by all the activity and the noise. The big winner at Tonopah was Kyle Taylor in his Chevy pickup; he was the twelfth vehicle to start and the second one to cross the fin-ish line but on elapsed time he was the winner overall by about six minutes and he certainly was the Class 8 Pro winner by about three quarters of an hour. Kyle suffered a broken front A-Arm a few miles from the finish had one flat early on in the race and the rest of the time sailed on to a well deserved Win. Second Class 8 Pro was Tom Scahill, also in a Chevy and al-though Tom only had one flat to deal with during the race he was unable to catch the winner and so settled for second, about a half hour out of victory circle. Eric Heiden took home third place in Class 8 Pro in his Ford pickup after a really lousy day. At a gas stop the oil pressure dropped to zero, so a quick fill was in order and the engine clattered the rest of the way and then the power steer-ing quit with about ninety miles to go. 'Nuf said. First vehicle to finish, first in Class 1 Pro, yet second overall on elapsed time was the brother team of Jeff and Jim Stiles, who made a val iart t effort for first overall in their Raceco but missed out by about six minutes. The guys fin-ished with a right front flat, ac-quired about twenty miles from the finish and while shooting for the overall, were happy to win the class and have basically a trouble free day. Ron Osburn had some major problems throughout the day. Ron ran solo and had rear suspension troubles that needed welding to cure and he rotated that the car never handled right at any time during the race and he was very happy to grab second plans in Class 1 Pro. Kevin Colan grabbed third place in Class 1 Pro after spending some hellishly long times between check two and check four, but as he never arrived at the interview tent, we have no idea what his problems were. Tracy Rubio catching some air on his way to the Class 7 victory, having no real mechanical problems with the Ford and were last seen enjoying their first in class victory. Danny Anderson and Rob MacCachren thought they were off to a great start in the Mirage, but a leaky valve cover had them add-ing oil frequently and that sure plays hell with the miles per hour. But they were still the first Class 10 car to finish and they grabbed third overall as well, not too far our of the overall win. The Tonopah 300 had a brand new racer in an older car as Shad Baldwin came our to compete and did right well for the new kid on the block as he took second place in Class 10 after fight-ing the power steering all race long with a flat thrown in just to rest his mettle. Welcome aboard Shad, keep the four black things on the ground. No less than five, count 'em June 1997 Dusty Times

First across the finish line was Austin Robison who had a trouble free race saying that it was a real Hum-mer Course and there seemed to be too many turns but win he did in less than seven hours and he looked none the worse for wear. Second Hummer in was driven by Chad Hall who has been driv-; n3 the Hummers ever since dad started with them and he said that his turbo-diesel ran flawlessly throughout the day and the sus-pension was reworked for this event and he was quite pleased with the overall performance. Last Hummer in was the vener-able Rod Hall who was obviously having some troubles our there. We never got to talk to Rod so we're -unable to mention his remarks here, but we are sure they would have been worth hearing. Class 7 looked_ like the Ford fac-tory as all the entrants in class wore the same logo on the hood. And even though they all looked good and drove hard there can be only one winner and it was Tracy Rubio with Glen Bohannon taking the win by a very slim margin, having only one flat to deal with during the race and overpowering some of the turns they took the checkers On class and really enjoyed their victory. In the hotly contested Class 7 race Gary Mecham, Greg Foutz, etal raced their Ford Pickup as hard as they could, led the class during the middle of the race and were constantly having brake problems and yet took second in Class just one minute out of the winners circle. One of the hard luck stories of the race should go to the Class 7 of Joe Kellogg who came down to race from Yakima, Washington, started out great bur got stuck be-tween check two and three and spent a couple of hours getting unstuck and then soldiered on for third in class, hours behind the winner. The Toyota truck of Dave Win-ner was the winner in Class 7S as Dave and his crew toured the course and only had a slight engine starting problem, no other troubles Dusty Times throughout the race and took the checkered flag with about twelve minutes in hand, having a truly great day and obviously enjoying the race no end. Second in 7S was Malcolm Yinje who didn't have that great of a day; ignition problems right off the start, a stray plug wire later in the day, all time consuming and frustrating, but Malcolm took it all in stride and rook the silver, about twelve minutes our of the winners spot. Class 5-1600's always seem to have a great race and a good time, no matter the result of the race and Frank Omboli came to Tonopah to win and win he did, raking the checkered flag after spending quire a bit of time reletting the carbure-tor and replacing a few flats with round ones, all in all having a good day in Tonopah. Second 5-1600 was Mark Foti who came over from San Francisco to try his hand at the Tonopah 300 and although they did finish after a long and grueling day, we never did see Mark so we have no idea what misfortune befell him out on the course, bur finishing itself is al-ways good news. Of the thirty six starters, twen ry three finished the course, a 64% finishing ratio and you can draw your own conclusions from that. Casey Folks and has Best In The Desert organization put on a good race, well organized with adequate radio coverage on the course and medical personnel standing by, making the event as safe as possible Dave Winner emerges from the water in his Toyota on the way to the Class 7S victory in the neat looking Fabtech truck, a very happy crew awaiting them at the finish. Tom Scahill chased first place in Class Ball race long but settled for second in the Chevy pickup at the Tonopah 300 and was fourth overall as well. June 1997 for all concerned. We certainly had an enjoyable time of it (the wind nor-wi rhsra nd ing) and the town of Tonopah opened its arms to all of the racers and their crews.

Art contacted me through a mu-tual friend. Together we decided print this so rhac everyone who was uncomfortable in asking would know what happened. Perhaps, people would feel more comfort-able in approaching him or others in the future. Ir was a warm day at 1 :30 PM on July 18th, in 1978. Art was cak-ing his six year old niece for a ride on his motorcycle. He had just got through copping off the bikes gas rank. While riding down the bou-levard he encountered a van char suddenly stopped in front of him then made an unexpected left cum. This left him nowhere co go and he hie che rear-end of che van. In che impact his niece was catapulted over the van while Arr broke both of his arms. The motorcycle wheeled up the back of the van and popped off the gas cap. Art was left sitting with the bike on rop of him. The gas spilled down che front of him and about the ground. His niece came back to see if. he was okay. She was standing nearby when the vapors were ignited by an unknown source unleashing flames on the pair. He yelled at his niece to get away and she did. However, Arr was left helpless with broken arms unable to get the bike off 0f him. The two were rushed to Har-bor General hospital in Torrance (now called Harbor-UCLA), since it was closest trauma center. Bue, since they didn't have a burn unit the pair were immediately trans-ferred ro Torrance Memorial hos-pital.

His wife, Susie, would bring him rhe la rest issues of all the off-road and 4X4 magazines. He read about rhe icons of rhe sport -Ivan, Walker, and of course Mickey.

A job well done. Leg 2 showed Makinen to be in great form and he started to pull away from Eriksson. Eriksson said he was nervous because of many spectators on the road, causing him to brake on occasion to avoid them. Richard Burns retired with gearbox failure, holding down fourth place at the time. Freddy Loix was unable to match the pace of Eriksson and Makinen in his Toyota Celica, mostly because of poor tire choices.

In the long run it would not change the results for teams at the finish. Roger Hull and Sean Gallagher in their Goodyear Tire Eagle Ta Ion made the best times, ran smart and lead the event overall from almost the start. This was not an easy cruise for the crew as on stage two of day two they had a flat tire early enough to have to change it in stage or risk damaging the car. After the tire change the team climbed into the car and tried to move, but the Eagle would not. A quick inspection found that the wheel spacer plate was left out on the tire change, so they had to take the tire off and remount the spacer. This allowed the two wheel drive battle to get very close to the leading pair, but subsequent stage times would counter the threat and leave Hull and Gallagher in the lead when it mattered, at the end.

Ir was the first rime the stadium racing had been in Brisbane for over 10 years and the crowd weren't disap-pointed as they watched Mark Manns fight his way through the clouds of fiberglass panels to win the Truck Final, while Daren Wells won all before him in the buggy Finals.

The third heat saw the commencement of some seri-ous pushing and Owen was held out wide by the mid field as Manns led . The fight for 2nd was between Paul Wee! and Attard's Dodge. Wee! eventually got free and set after Manns who he caught and slipped by on the 2nd last corner to take a win . The all important Class Final saw Manns and Warman lead away but the group was all together in the first Corner and Warman's yel-low panels soon covered rhe track . He however now led as a pileup for 3rd saw Owen blow a tire from a king hit. Paul Wee! slipped past Manns and closed on Warman, but Wee! was handed the lead as Warman pulled over with simply a blown fuse. Wee! took the win fol-l_owed by Manns. Kees Wee! had a gearbox let go but limped across the line followed by an equally slowing Attard. Paul Weel was somehow singled out for careless driving and dropped to 3rd. The Feature Final turned out to be a finer with attrition the only winner.

Owen was next in but it was un-sure whether he was any laps down. 1600 Buggies: . The fiery. bunch of 1600 bug-gies never fail to provide plenty of action and this night was no ex-ception.

Jobe took rhe win on his debut 1600 class night ahead of Bruce Warman, Chris Warman and the battling pair of Medrano and Ziems. . The Feature Final for Buggies rncluded both Unlimiteds and 1600\. With Wells off the rear of the IO car group it looked like a great race was ahead. On the green there was a nose to tail and Murfet was slammed and was our. Styles then ran wide and got caught on an outer berm. The cars of Jobe and Chris Warman there had a wild ride locked together which ended in Warman parked on an inverted Jobe. Meanwhile Ziems was lead-ing and Wells closing fast . Wells slipped by his team mate and took command. Bruce Warman pulled out as Wells rook the win with Ziems 2nd.

Six Checker pits sup-ported 8 Club entries at this race, producing six finishers. Granted, Fremont Street it ain't, but Primm definitely holds up it's end of the deal. I mean, flashy Nevada casinos and desert racin' have long had a rich history· of successful cooperation. Robert Harman continued knocking on the door this year while piling up points at this third SCORE event. Bullhorn soloed this three lap race for a fine third place finish in a large field of Class 10 cars. As the cur-rent class points leader, look for Harman to break out for a win in the near future.

Brian and Scott Steele· were the Club's best fin-isher in a close and hard fought Class 1/2-1600 battle that had about 30 cars in it. Ending this close run, the brothers earned a good fourth place finish. Good show, guys! Larry Bolin finally lost the suspension completely on one front corner of his old ten car, but was still able to limp home with a seventh in SCORE's new class for obsolete ten cars. Impressively, this new Class 12 had about 20 cars entered. The Krepsz brothers also had a good run in their 1/2-1600 car. But apparently with a combination of an exhaust problem, that extra poundage they carry, and too much time spent on the radio ar-guing with Bates m usta slowed'em down enough that they could only manage an eighth. Mike Duenas suffered through a flat and a c.v. problem in his l /2-1600 buggy and had to settle for a 16th in class. Jim Greenway had some front end problems in his Class 10 ride fi-nally making it to the finish line near the back of the- pack. Commander Koch put the 'Ridgecrest Rocket' back into service at this race and was spec-tacular from blast off to landing. And, even after that, Tom was really jlyin' on the first lap over the kinda terrain he likes, But, then he hit a ravine at mach 1 and did a big time 'git over'. Then, while lying upside down on the course waiting for the dust to clear, our boy gets smacked into by another open car, spin-ning him further down the road. I'm sure Tom's gotta have some sore spots, but typically nothing was broken, Kevin Davis barely worked up a sweat on the first lap before he joined Koch as the Club's only two ON Fs. Report-edly our. hero lost his power steering drive about 20 miles our and parked his impressive brand new ul'limited bugr:y shortly af-ter th;1 Hey Kevi1:, that's a to-tal of only about 20 miles in two races?? You ain't workin' on that rhing yourself are ya? FAIR NEWS -"Joy" is now writing FA I R's Dusty Times col-umn. And for no apparent rea-son in her recent attempt at jour-nalism she just had to slip in a snide sexist remark about the Checkers. Now a snide sexist re-mark from a FAIR female is not the concern here, it's just that this embryo reporter got her facts wrong. Puttin' out 'Bad Poop', if you will. So with "Joy" in mind, let me clarify the Checkers no women rule a bit. First off, the Checkers love women. I mean, we do! All of us! Our manly brotherhood has always been a dedicated het-erosexual organization seriously intent on impressin' the chicks. Although _the Checkers have never accepted females as mem-bers, for years we let them attend our weekly Wednesday night meetings. But a number of years ago, in a desperate grab for some sense of order on Wednesday nights, we finally banned the la-dies from any involvement in the conducting of Club business. But, those Wednesday night meetings are the only area of Checker activity where women are prohibited. In all other as-pects of desert racin' and parryin' June 1997 our women folk play an impor-tant and attractive part in every way in helpin' us Checkers do our thing out in the deserts (in-cluding working the radios). This Wahzoo has nothing but the highest regard for all our 'Checker Ladies', be they of a permanent status or in transit. I hope this clears everything up and will put an end to any fur-ther gender harassment from FAIR's new Lll' lady reporter. SUMMER PARTY - Hey! Get out a big black felt tip marker and write July 26th on either your wife's ass or your kids fore-head, whichever ya see most of. That's the date of this years An-nual Checkers Summer Party out at Cougar Buttes and ya don't wanta miss it! Sean K~epsz is once again Party Chairman and promises to do an even better job than last year, so we can all ex-pect a doozie. The Prez has a guy coming out from V.W. Trends Magazine who plans on taking a group picture and doing a story on the C)ub. Also, Danny Reider and his · band are back together again and are comin' back out to 'Checker Cove' this year where they always sound so good. A lot of things seem to be gettin' put together a lot earlier than usual this year. So, if ya got something to contribute to this year's annual get together call either Sean or the Prez, or make it to a meeting in the near fixture. WAHZOO'S BACK! - Failing miserably in my attempt to shake a part time Checker Column writer out of the membership, the Big Wahzoo will return ro my old routine of writing a 'Straight Poop' column every month in the Dusty Times. They'll probably be a little shorter, but the info will tend to be a lot more current. Al.~Q, !Qb._r,:i_ Calvin has assured this Wahzoo that the agreement I had with Jean regarding the content of our column and se-crecy of it's author will continue to be honored as long as he's in charge. The Big Wahzoo appre-ciates John's confidence and sense of humor.

SAN FELIPE 250 MAG-7 race headquarters for the San Felipe 250 was located at Campo El Paraiso, "Pete's Camp", where the Navarro family extended their always gracious hospitality to all. Mag-7 racers consisted of Bill Hernquists' air cooled 10 car #JOO 1, Ed Mcleans' "Challenger" #902, Pedro Vargas' Class 3 Blazer #351, Richard Jackson on a Kawasaki 500 #51 X and Earl Higpens' Yamaha 350 Wolverine #52A. Pit #A was located near El Chinero and was captained by Terry Walsh with help from Ray Frank and Manny Lozano. It was primarily a fuel pit for the MAG-7 ATVs arid also served as backup for the larger vehicles. Terry filed the following pit report: 'Terry Walsh, Manny Lozano and Ray Frank manned an auxiliary pit (pit A) in support of motorcycles and quads not able to reach the first major MAG-7 pit (Pit 1) located at the head of Diablo. The pit was located at EI Chinero just before the road crossing. The spot was perfect with a clear view of our banner by the racers. Use of the 2 meter radios, of which every MAG-7 pit always has in place, let us know when our vehicles were off. Ray Frank did a great job keeping the MAG-7 race log by recording racer numbers and times as they cleared the pit.

information always comes in handy resolving chase problems future planning and even disputes. All MAG-7 racers received the re-quired service and cleared the pit in good shape." Finally. #879 (Gildos) stopped to have his hood secured. Well, that's all for now-See ya at the races."! Steve Stenberg. Coming Next Month ... Steve Stenberg filed this report on MAG-7 pit# 1: "MAG-7 Pit #I was located at the 100.8 mile mark near San Matias Wash, on the power line trail. The pit was captained by Stephen Stenberg with Shawn Wells and Terry per-forming equal shares of the work. We waved encouragement to #5 IX, Richard Jackson as he sped by at 8:21 A.M. Other than miss-ing his rear fender, the Kaw 500 was running great and he didn't need any help. Next was #52A, Earl Higpen, at 9:42 A.M. riding a Yam 350 Wolverine. No prob-lems with the quad, so we gassed the bike and sent him on his way. First vehicle for us was Bill Hernquist as he "FLEW" by at I 0: 13. No problems were reported and he appeared to be in front of the pack. Next was #902, drive_n by our Prez. Phillip Breedlove. No problems were reported although a shock had previously failed at mile 50. Pedro Vargas rolled into the pit at I: 11 reporting ignition and overheating problems. We gassed him, changed his coolant, filled his oil, and cleaned his pumper filter while the co-driver repaired the ignition. We gave him a mighty MAG-7 send off and he continued on. Three BFG racers also pulled in for emergency assis-tance. The first was # 1603 need-ing a gallon of fuel to reach the BFG pit. Second was #1208 (John Holmes) who needed to have new points installed. We installed the points, helped 'jump' the car to start it (after push starting didn't work) and sent him on his way. Pit #2 (MAG-7 Main) was lo-cated at Morelia Junction and captained by Wayne Newell. All MAG-7 racers reached his pit and he reported nothing out of the or-dinary. Pit #3 was located near Chanate wash with Mark Cranmore as the pit captain. He reported a fair amount of broken race cars as this pit was located well into the course and in a pretty rough section of the course. All in all, the MAG-7 team reported a first place won by Pedro Vargas in the Class 3 Sportsman and a fifth place finish by Ed McLean in Class 9. SCORE International Primm 300 "Wild West Rally Off Road Racing at Glen Helen Raceway -Round 3 Estero Beach Short Course Racing TECATE 250 ENDURO MAG-7 maintained the yearly tradition of providing lunch for the Los Ancianos TECATE 250 Enduro. Much thanks to the crew which consisted of Jeff Hill, Bill Krukmeyer, the Wickershams, Mark Cranmore and crew, Andy and Angela Pina and Andy's par-en ts, Hugh McLean and the Breedlove family. Lunch was served at the end of the second of three loops to an appreciative and hun-gry crowd of 175 plus support people. Rancho El Com padre pro-vided the location and the hospi-tality which were much appreciated by all. All the racers complimented· Los Ancianos on the course and they all seemed pretty weary at lunch, which is expected. After the event, MAG-7 invited the folks from El Compadre up for some MAG-R-ITAS and this is here my memory begins to fade ... See you next year!!! PRIMM 300 Congratulations to Bill Hernquist for winning Class IO in his air cooled JIM CO car and plac-ing in the top five overall. The course was rough and there was plenty of competition but he hung in there for the wins!! MAG-7 pro-vided Bill with two pits but there wasn't much to do except gas him up and let him fly. BAJA SPIRIT AWARD Long time MAG-7 Brother Jim Becker (presently racing class 5-I 600) presented a large check to Sal Fish as the first commitment to the MAG-7 Bruce Cranmore 'Baja Spirit" award for the BAJA 2000 in the year 2000. According to Sal at San Felipe, this is the first actual award commitment by anyone to the BAJA 2000. It is very fitting, however, because MAG-7 is certain that the BAJA 2000 will epito-mize the "Spirit" of Bruce and Baja. Thanks to John Becker for helping to perpetuate that spirit through this award. MAG-7 extends its'condolences to the Calvin family and the staff of Dusty Times on the recent pass-ing of Jean Calvin. Jean contrib-uted enormously to Our-sport over many, many years and will be sorely missed.

In Memorium I've lost a friend. Much more than that: Jean was a mentor, a sponsor, a critic, a co-worker, and an employer. She was all those things to me, but a friend most of all. I met Jean in 1971 at a BRA race when I introduced myself and told her I'd admired an ar-ticle she'd written. She was easy to talk to, and that was the first Valley Performance Custom Accessories Competitive Prices Now Available: Barbary Coaf-!t Class 2 Two Seater $45,000 Call Dave or Lenny at 702-247-1266 Page 34 3636 Mead AYenuc Las Vegas, NV 89102 702-24 7-1266 of a lot of conversations. For one thing, we were both racers at a time when there weren't many women driving off road, so we had a common basis for our talk. We could trade horror stories about bathrooms and one-piece driving suits and getting lost. For a time, in the late seven-ties, she had her office in the same building in which I worked. We often took lunch together. By then I was writing also, and of-ten for Jean. She taught me a lot about the craft and the industry. And I also co-drove with her in her race car. We ran in Class 9, and then moved up to the 1-2-1600 class. The racing was great, the friendship was terrific. with the loss of the lower part of her left leg, as well as the near con-stant pain from the plates and screws that held both legs together. Still, her indomitable will took her to work seven days a week, and to as many races as she could fit in. She broke her hip a couple of years ago and missed only a week at work, and when she had a slight stroke about a year ago she had to be persuaded to leave the office to see her doctor. Her grit and deter-mination were astonishing. The paper had to be got out. She set an example for all who saw her pace slow and her body grow ever more frail as she continued to work, con-tinued to get it all done. Jean was a tough old bird, stubborn, critical, loyal and hon-est. She never failed her friends or the sport she loved. I miss her, but at least I know she's not in pain any longer. Mental Images Whenever we hear words or phrases, our mind sorts through its' infinite data base and displays the • image that represents what we heard. As if by magic we have in-stant recall of the events that have made impressions on our mind. One of the bits of information that has made an indelible impression on my mind, is that of]ean Calvin. For those of you that did not have the opportunity to know her as I did, this is the image that my mind brings up for me to remember. It was the running of the 25th SNORE 250 in Jean, Nevada. A. J. and I decided to enter that race for its' historical significance. When the race was over, all of the finishers were gathered around the finish line for post race tech and inspection. Along with the racers there were the race officials, the media, and hundreds of spectators. Ir was quite impressive. Then, from out of the parking area, I saw Jean walking cowards the multitude of people that had converged upon the finish line. The parking area was on the opposite of the race course, so Jean had co negotiate the burms and ruts that had been carved our by the race cars. Thar, in itself, was no easy task for her, because she had lost half of her suspension system and needed a cane co maintain balance. As she approached the first burm, she took it at an angle, pausing at rhe cop. Proceeding at an angle, she re-peated the process. Down rhe face of the burm, pause, up rhe face of the middle of rhe burm, pause, down the burm, pause, up the last burm and she was across. You might say co yourself, why didn't you help her? Well I'll tell you why. she would have hit me with her cane! Jean was very independent. As she approached the throngs of people, her face lit up and paled the afternoon sun. She looked as if she had just achieved a life long dream. I said to myself, what's she smiling at? Then it dawned on me. she didn't look at the crowd as a bunch of dirty tired racers . She perceived them as conquering war-riors returning from some distant campaign. To her they were all he-roes. She wasn't there because she had to interview them, she was there because she got to interview them. Off-Road racing has lost one of its' champions, and I hope that your mental image of Jean paral-lels mine. When she started the Dusty Times she moved from our office building, but I was writing for her regularly, and we talked to each other often. Then in '94 she moved back to an office adjacent to mine. she was by then dealing JudySmith · Herman De Nunzio SCORE 1996 ENGINE BUILDER OF THE YEAR! RR~ ~ . ~ And the beat goes on!
