ATLAS SAVANE RALLY -The Atlas Savane Rally, produced by the same folks that put on the Dakar Rallye began in Spain on Saturday, May I 0. There was one special stage near Valencia, Spain and then all vehicles crossed the Mediterranean for a weeks worth of hard driving in Morroco. Some of the real rally pros are entered but we also have our own Larry Ragland running a Protruck owned by Marc Lajara. Ragland was not favored to win but did quite well, running close behind the two factory Citron ZX's and the Dakar winning Mitsubishi T3. When all the chips were counted after the week-long ordeal Ragland finished fifth overall and he certainly put on a good show MOJAVE DESERT RACING SETS RECORD -MOR staged their Stoddard Valley 200 the first weekend in May and had a record seventy entries to Contest for the wins in the various classes. Rod Muller won C lass l O and the overall honors, completing all five laps in 3:47: 18, almost a 53 mile per hour average. Scott Wisdom squeaked out the 1/2-1600 win by a mere minute and a half. Ron Osburn won the unlimited class, Rick Johnson won 5-1600, Robert Armlenta won Class 5, Jim Hall won C lass 7, Bill Marker won 75 Max Hanberg took the honors in C lass 9. Look for the full story in the next issue of Dusty Times. THERE WAS JOY AT THE RIM RALLY -The Mitsubishi of Henry Joy and Michael Fennel won the l 4th Annual Rim of the World PRO Rally, although it was touch and go for a while. Paul Choiniere was leading handily when a bit of over exuberance snapped a wheel off the Hyundai. T he crew actually rebuilt the left rear suspension and and Choiniere opened his lead further, but another mechanical failure on the next to last stage put the Hyundai out off the rally. Joy had led the rally on previous occasions but mechanical woes always put him out of contention so chis victory was really sweet and puts Joy into the overall points lead. Sam Ryan/Rob Walden won 2WD Group 5 and were third overall as well. First in 2WD Group 2 was Bill Malik and Farina O'Sullivan in the Volvo 240. Ocher winners were Lee Shadbolc/Paul Eklund in production GT and Pete Morris/Eric Oyague in Production. Story nest issue. KAWASAKI SPONSORSHIP -Kawasaki Motors Corp., USA announced chat they are now a corporate sponsor of the AMA Women and Motorcycling National Conference, scheduled in Westerville, Ohio in mid July. Bob Moffit, Kawasaki VP Marketing stated chat in some motorcycle models, female ownership is in the 18% to 95% range and we should welcome chem into motorcycling with enthusiasm. The AMA currencly has over 210,000 members, pursuing, protecting and promoting the interests of motorcyclists. C.O.R.E. BRANCHES OUT -California Off Road Enthusiast's, one of the older pit support groups is forming a new high desert chapter. C.O.R.E. north will meet the first Monday of every month, 7:00 p.m. at the Lam post Pizza on 7th Street in Victorville. are a current member of C.O.R.E. or would like to join a pitting team get in touch with them. For more info call Joel at (760) 947-7342. SCORE BAJA 500 -Ready for his first outing in the desert this year, Ivan Stewart will be the first truck to start the 470 mile race across the wilds of Baja. Ivan will be debuting the all new Toyota TlOO with the developmental V8 under the hood, looking for the added horsepower to keep up with the other Trophy Trucks on the long fast runs. First Class I to leave the line will be Bob Gordon with assistance from Frank Arciero, Jr. Total entry approaches 200 as of this writing. Full coverage to come later. VdRRA YERINGTON 300 -Tim Bownan and George Reese took the overall Win in their Class IO buggy, finishing on three wheels after an almost-to-the-finish accident ripped away part of the car. Sixty-two competed in the four lap 260 mile race. Payback for the race was over $10,000 and there was more than $100,000 posted in contingency. More next issue. CRANDON GOING ON LINE -The Crandon International Off Road Raceway Web Site is nearing completion and will be announced shorcly, so says Doug Davis at CIORA, and as soon as the address is known we will let you know. 1997 SODA TV DATES -Chevrolet Memorial Day 100 -Lake Geneva -June 6, 7:00 p.m.; Chevrolet Off Road Championship -Antigo -June 21, 11:30 p.m.; Chevrolet Brush Run -July 5, 2:00 p.m.; Chevrolet Off Road Nationals -Lake Geneva -August 3, 10:00 p.m.; Chevrolet U.P.

With the tremendous growth of coverage of the SODA races and the huge growth in off road audiences the past few years, there seems to be a problem in finding which direction the SODA organization should go. We assume the question is whether to expand the market, the race sc~edule, the race locations, only supposition on our part but if there is a problem and we've already heard about it out here on the west coast, there may be some truth to the rumor. Anyway, hopefully whatever it is it will be quickly resolved to the satisfaction of all parties concerned. "Nuf said. Dusty Times

1997 SCORE PRIMM 300 LeDuc Makes It Three In A Row Curt Leduc in the now famous Don-A-Vee Jeep Trophy Truck was the overall winner in the SCORE Primm 300, coverinq the prescribed three laps in 5:02:37, twenty some odd minutes ahead of the near__est car and had a trouble free day. Mike Julson in his Jimco A-Arm had the overall on the last tap but some weird electrical problems slowed him a bit, five minutes out of the overall and a shoo-in in Class 1. Curt LeDuc made it victory number three at SCORE's Primm 300 in April. He was pushed hard by Mike Julson, in a Jimco unlimited car, who had the lead going into the final lap. Bue Julson's luck didn't hold, and LeDuc and his Jeep moved co the front and right into victory circle. . Last year's first annual Primm 300 was an artistic suc-cess. And apparently the word got out. There were 154 start-ers at the second annual, up by 20 enmes. SCORE handled Ron Brant and Danny Letner ran hard all day, had no troubles to speak of and took the silver in Trophy Trucks, about thirty five minutes behind the leader. John Swift and Steve 01/iges hustled the good looking Trophy Truck across the desert for a nice third place, just three minutes out of second after a trouble free run. things much the same way as last year, designing the course so it just skimmed the edge of the Buffalo Bill Hotel's giant parking lot. Then they installed bleacher seats, set up a row of concessionaires wi ch food and souvenirs, and built some jumps and bumps to add ex-citement to the section of the course chat was just in front of the bleachers. This was the scare/finish line also, and a spectator with binoculars could watch the action in the main pits just down the road a piece. When the cars started just at dawn, the bleachers were al-ready full. The early birds saw the Trophy Trucks take off first, at 30 second intervals, heading out into the Nevada desert for a three lap race, totaling almost 270 miles. There was an 11 hour rime limit for all classes. Tim and Ed Herbst put their Ford Trophy Truck into the first lap lead with the fast lap of the day, at 1:35:07, but they had only a liccle over three min-utes on LeDuc. Ron Brant ran third in Danny Lerner's Chevy, a Ii ctle underpowered because they had installed their six cyl-inder motor while the eight cylinder was being prepped for Baja. On the second lap the Herbsts were out with a major motor problem for which they had no fix. That put LeDuc into the lead, with Brant ·and Lerner now in second, and John Swift and Steve Olliges running third in a Ford. This Bill Pate and Brian Ewalt moved into third in Class 1 on tap two and into second on ~p three in spite of losing a gear. In Class 1, Troy Herbst had some major engine problems but managed to hold third • was Olliges' first race in a Tro-phy Truck. He drove the first lap and said it was the·"funnest day" of his life. Swift had brake problems. LeDuc was having no trouble, but he was making some extra gas stops. His crew had decided that it would to be his advantage to run with less cfian a full tank. That meant he had to stop four times to fuel during the three laps. Nonethe-less, he stayed in front of the pack, threading his way through lapped traffic, and cook the win. Lerner and Brant finished second, while Swift and Olliges were third. Jeff Lewis lost all the oil in the rear end of his Chevy and cooked it, but after repairs he took fourth, and Mike Tieman had to replace a broken c.v. on his • '"%.' :4'.

Chevy two rimes, but could still say he had a good time, and finished fifth. In the unlimited class the first lap leader was Mark Post in his Chevy powered Riviera Eagle, and he posted the quick time for the class at 1 :38:42. Mike Julson was just under a minute behind him in the Jimco A-arm car, and Jeff Darland ran only 10 seconds further back in a Toyota pow-. ered Ch~nowth Magnum. Troy Herbst ran fourth in his Porsche powered two-seater and Butch Arciero ran fifth in Bob Gordon's Toyota Chenowth. Only a minute and 34 seconds s~parated first and fifth places.

Bill Pace and Brian Ewalt, in a Type IV powered RCD A-arm car, were now third and Herbst wirh Steve Martin's son, A.J. riding shotgun, was now fourth, followed by Darland in fifth. Julson, who had a lukewarm season in '96, was having a great race, and at che scare of the third lao had rhe overall r , Bekki Freeman was tied for the 112-1600 lead on lap one, led the class on lap two suffered suspension problems on lap three and still garnered third place. ~· ...

So he gor out of the car ro see what was wrong. There was nothing visible, .so he got back in and it fired up and ran fine. He never did figure out what had gone wrong, but it cost him the overall win, though he was far enough in front to keep the class win.

Larry Roese/er led Class 7 all the way, in spite of some down time on lap one and he finished with a couple of hours in hand. up co fifth place in his Chevy powered Aceco Hedge Hog. The l-2/1600s had a good-sized group for this race, with 28 entries, and 22 of them managed to finish. At the end of lap one it was a tie, with Bekki Freeman, in a Bunderson and Vic Bruckmann in a Chenowth, in front and record-ing the class first lap at 2:02:20. Jeremy Gubler ran third in his Mirage, and then came Brian Steele in his Sus-pension Unlimited car, fol-lowed by Mark Ruddis in a Porter. Rick Paquette ran sixth in his Jimco, and he was only two minutes and 42 seconds behind the lead pair. Bruckmann fell out on the second lap and Freeman stayed in front, now with a minute and 33 seconds on Gubler. But Gubler finished his second lap with a broken rear suspension and headed into his pit. In third it was Paquette and his co-driver Brad Maurer, finding it a dusty race. Kenny Freeman, Jr., Bekki's brother, was fourth in another Bunderson, and Steele and his brother, Scott, were now fifth.

"' --i In Class 5 Pete Sohren had his Fod Fab out in front at the end of lap one, with almost three minutes on George Seeley in his Dave Snoddy Special, who'd had a flat already. In third it was Mike Jakobsen, in a Migtec, who was not happy with his rear suspension. He and his crew had been up most of the night before the race, re-building their transmission which had blown in practice. Dohren sheared some c.v. bolts on the second lap, and sat out the rest of the race. Seeley moved into the lead with the flat lap for the class; at 1 :54:22. He was now about 18 m inutes in front of Jakobsen, who was second. In third it was Neal Grabowski. Seeley went on with no fur-ther trouble, and rook the win by nearl y 40 minutes. Brian and Dana D ague were second, reporting only one flat on their way to the finish line. Jakobsen was third, another n ine min- · utes back. He also had only one flat. The Grabowskis were out when· they hit a big rock so hard it jammed their shifter and they could no longer shift. In Class 5-1600 Danny and Mario Ledezma put themselves in front with the class fast lap at 2:20:26, and they had eight minutes on Eric and Shane Pavolka, in their brand new car. Victor Orellana and Juan Delgadillo ran third, with Guillermo and-Miguel Quintero and Francisco Ortiz in fourth place. The Ledezmas were still in front at the end of the second lap, but the Pavolkas had closed the gap, and were only three minutes behind them now. The Quinteros and Ortiz had moved up ro third, with Gerardo and Carlos lribe now in fourth, as Orellana and Delgadillo broke. On the last lap the Ledezmas lost their transmission, and while they did a hurried re-placement job the Pavolkas, whose only problem had been that their hood flew off, went on past and to the finish line for the win. This was their sec-ond SCORE win, the first hav-ing been at Laughlin in '96. The Quinteros and Ortiz, who'd driven one lap each, said they had a good day, with just one flat, and being stuck once, and moved into second. Some speedy on-course pit work got the Ledezmas to the finish line .in third place, not quite cwo hours behind the winning car. The Class 7 cars were led by che Chevrolet of Larry Roeseler at the end of che first lap, and he'd spent some time in the pits doing away with a drive shaft that had been bent on a rock.

Lobsam and Eli Yee had some carburetor problems but the rookies soldiered on and took the Class 9 win over some very heavy hitters. Danny Anderson and Rob MacCachren flew the Mirage all the way to record the win in SCORE Lites, having no problems during the race. Steve Barlow led the Protruck class from the start, had one flat but took his second win of the season in the pretty Ford. Chevy, with Gary Mecham and Bert Ayers in fourth in a Ford. Roeseler had no more trouble and had a huge lead at the end of the second lap, which had been disastrous for some of the ochers. Mecham's truck had bee~ pushed over the edge of a cliff and needed over an hour to get unstuck, while Land and Jenkins broke a spindle and had to make re-pairs. Mavis moved up to sec-ond place, and now Tracy Rubio, in another Ford ran third. Roeseler kept moving along smoothly, and got to the finish line first, to take another win, his second chis season. Mavis broke his steering about 25 miles into the last lap, and was out for good, and Rubio also Page 12 disappeared o n the last lap. That moved Mecham up to sec-ond place, his only mechanical problem being a failed helmet pumper motor. Land and Jenkins also had a good last lap, and finished third, the last in the class to get to the finish line. In Class 7S the first lap lead belonged to Don McCarthy in a Ford recently purchased from Scott Steinberger. (Steinberger won this race in that truck in '96.) Brady Helm and Bob Graham had their Toyota in second place, though a long way back after havin·g to re-place a fuel pump in a silt bed. They broke an ignition wire later in the lap also. Steve Ghamari was a distant third in his Toyota, and Joel Scankavich broke his Ford on lap one.

They were first W2L and third overall. Raphael Sperrer and Per Carlsson set up for the right hander in the Renault Maxi Megane, a private team by Renault Austria on the way to third in W2L and ninth overall. Dusty Times Another innovation moving into' the Rally world is the se-quential gearshift system. This system is particularly useful on asphalt although Makinen 's win in Portugal using the sequential gearshift was on gravel, bur he and the Mitsubishi didn't know that and won anyway. The W2L cars were a mighty topic of discussion, as last year the first W2L car was only four minutes behind the overall win-ner and one minute of that was due to a flat tire, so we could have been looking at a three minute difference in total time. So, this year, with the entire course expected to be dry, how close would the W2L cars come to winning overall? Could they even come close to the times of the top cars? Peugeot's competi-tion director said, "I will be very disappointed if we do not achieve a podium finish." Sainz shud-dered at the thought. "If that happens it will not be acceptable. Something will be wrong with the system. It will be the fault of the ruks. I will be very upset, and so will the manufacturers." Also of note was the transfer of Armin Schwarz's codriver, Denis Giraudet. The Caralunya Rally was his last appearance with the Ford ream and he is now with Toyota, perhaps to team up once again with Didier Auriol in the Corolla World Rally Car later this season. Catalunya also saw the return of Bruno Thiry who had been let go by Ford after last year's Catalunya Rally, and this year had been provided with a SEAT Kit Car. Leg 1 of the rally consisted of six stages, 115 km's and Gilles Panizzi rocketed into the lead in the Peugeot and there he stayed July 1997 Piero Liatti and Fabrizia Pons power out of a corner on the way to an impressive second place, seven seconds behind the leader in the Subaru lmpreza WRCar. until a flat on the last stage of the leg dropped him to ninth place.

for rhe overall overshadowed the W2L contest. Peugeot won all six stages and Raphael Sperrer fin-ished third for the day in the Renault Maxi Megane. In Group N Gustavo Trelles led all day, winning every stage. The cars of Manfred Stohl and Luis Climenr were running close behind bur suffered problems and lost lots of rime., so second at rhe end of the day was Santi Concepcion in a Group N F9rd. The Ford Escort RS2000 lifts the right rear as the team of Alonso/8elzunce head Carlos Sainz and Luis Moya finished a long tenth overall in, the Ford Escort WRCar Leg 2 was 171 kms, consist-ing of seven stages and suddenly the rally was a lot smaller as no less than 31 cars did not take rhe start on Leg 2. They were drivers who were contesting the one-make championships and were only running on the first days stages. . for their fourth place in W2L and twelfth overall as well. due in part to driveshaft problems on Leg 2 . Whar a day! With the top rwo W2L cars delayed, the race was on between the Subarus of Liarri and McRae and the Mitsubishi of Makinen. Of rhe seven stages on Leg 2, the standings after three of them was a tie for the lead, the lead never being greater than three seconds all day. Makinen starred 12 seconds be-hind, a spin on the last stage of Leg 1 the demise and Subaru was confident knowing that if they survived the abrasive stages in the south and were still leading, their chances of victory looked good with their Pirelli tires. But, at the rest stop halfway on Leg 2, the Michelin's were performing beautifully and Makinen was o-nly four seconds behind Liarri. McRae had a flat on Stage 11 and lost three minutes, while Liatti and Makinen were never less than a second apart throughout the rest of Leg 2. Bruno Thiry with Stephane Prevot in the right seat set up for the corner in the SEAT Ibiza Kit Car in Thiry's return to World Championship rallying. Pavel Sibera and Petr Gross in the Skoda Felicia Kit Car 1600 corner hard before succumbing to gearbox failure at the end of Leg 1. Ford had lowered rhe suspen-sion on their cars in view of smoother and less cambered roads to come and this was their undoing. The mufflers on Sainz's car and Schwarz's car hit the road surface constantly and were de-stroyed, causing excessive heat, snapping rear drive shafts on both cars. Schwarz had the first failure, had it fixed, but it went south again and he was our of the competition. Sainz's driveshafr was changed and he soldiered on without fixing the exhaust so he fell from fourth ro twelfth, driv-ing with the door open ro get some cool air into the car. In W2L rhe chase went on, be-tween them Delacour and Panizzi had set four of the days fastest times and Panizzi was catching up fast; from ninth af-ter the first stage of the day he ended up third. Delecour had Rui Madera and Nuno Silva hang it all out in the Subaru lmpressa 555, finishing sixth in WCD in the Catalunya Rally. The Citroen ZX Kit Car of Jesus Puras/Carlos def Barrio had an absolutely rotten day, breaking the front suspension before starting the first stage.

PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY 1997 Short Course Off Road Racing At ''The PAS'' Taking the checkers at the "PAS" for the final time is Dan Cannon, savoring the win as the PAS discontinues stadium off road Competition. Thi~ will unquestionably be the most bittersweet piece of journalism that I 've ever as-sembled . I'm sure each and ev-ery one of you out there in "Readerland", is aware of the ups and downs and the highs and lows associated with not only off-road racing, but also life in gen-eral. I just can't help but hope. that the rumor I heard today is nothing more than a bad dream, but more about that later. Sta-dium short course action re-turned to "The PAS" on April 20th, and Spring was in full bloom as this track welcomed back off-road's unique style of racing. And under clear, warm skies, return they did, to the scene of some of the games most exhilarating performances. Those who attended got the holeshot on their summer tans, as the racing took place on a brilliantly sunny day. This opener of what was billed as a Spring/Summer series, came off as smoothly as the words of the PAS's ultra-suave announcer Bruce Flanders. Sev-eral dozen racers sped around and over a challenging course, which had played host to better than a hundred "outlaw racers" just the previous evening. Con-gratulations are definitely in or-der to the entire Perris crew, for putting on a terrific show while staging a race of their own against the clock. The expected shortage at the · turnstyles, seemed to be more than made up for by the wrath and enthusiasm of those on the scene. "The PAS", which could also stand for "Party All Sum-mer", was really sitting pretty with scheduled evening events including the second '97 off-road show, which was slated for May 17th. This desirably cool idea made those future shows even more appealing to both fans and racers. The Speedway and its braintrust, who've always seemed to outdo themselves whenever they've· played host, again were exceptionally gracious. The spa-cious stands and friendly folks that we've become so accustomed to at "The PAS", were just as en-joyable as ever, maybe even more so. It was with great pleasure that I personally toured almost every inch of the grounds. From the grandstands, to the pit area, to the race course itself (even made a brief stop in the Sports Pavil-ion), and if there was even one person who wasn't having a great time, I sure didn't notice them. Perhaps one of the biggest rea-sons behind the success of this ul-tra-modern track, has been the background of those trusted with its operation. I mean, who bet-ter to know what fans and racers enjoy, than some of the sports magazine names and competitors from its recent past? With a num-ber of ex-racers making up a siz-able portion of the Perris Speed-way staff, it's no wonder events here have been so well received. It's readily apparent that a great deal of thought and energy has gone into developing the creature comforts bestowed upon both fan and participant alike. Additionally, considerable work and effort has assured that everyone attending their shows enjoys the best available ameni-ties the sport has to offer. The desire to produce a true "Family Racing Experience" was the mes-sage related at this event's man-datory drivers' meeting, and I'm glad to report that no cost has been spared in seeing that this most worthwhile goal has been · achieved.You've really got to love a place where the Public Address Announcer verbally lambasts those temporarily insane types, who can't use a restroom with-out having to scrawl some sense-less graffiti on its otherwise spot-less walls (Good job Bruce). Most reasonably priced souvenir hats off, to all those connected to "The PAS", and their April 20th · show. So with nary a yellow flag in sight, let us speed on to the Joe Price had to come from behind in both heats but he took the checkered flag twice for a most convincing series of wins. Sean McKenzie was second in the first Heat led Heat #2 for a bit but was relegated to second overall for the day. results and highlights from the first, and hopefully not the last, 1997 off-road short course event from the beautiful Perris Auto Speedway. No less than twelve classes took part in the days races, with the opening event contested by members of Classes 5, 9, 10, 11, l /2 1600 Short Course, and l /2 1600 Desert. It was the Class l 0 car driven by Gary Williams (#48) who grabbed the initial holeshot, and the day's festivities were underway. Marshall Ziegert (#5), in his Class 1/2 I 600 Shorr Course car eventually worked his way to the front, and from there he then led the others on a merry and futile chase, in racing to the first moto victory. Larry McCallum (#11) was first home in Class 5, followed by the team of Ron Satter and Rick H ansen (#512). Gary Williams scored the win in Class 10, while "Big Bob" Dziurawiec (#1631) was first of the l /2 1600 Desert set. Follow-ing Dziurawiec was the Class 9 car piloted and co-piloted by Martin Gill and Miles Calkins (#911). Next came the Class 11 car of Robert Henderson (#1161), followed by the remain-ing three l /2 1600 vehicles of Jess Atwood (#900), Kathy Fay. (# I 6 I I ), and Rafael Navarro (#9). Race Two was for the ATV Sportsman set, and it was Ron Holthaus grabbing the early lead, Holthaus, Richard Yakkey, and Matt Duhamel! all battled for command, with Duhamell even-tually emerging v·ictorious. Holthaus did well to earn the sec-ond spot, with Dave Anderson closing in for third. They were next followed by fourth place fin-isher Raul Perez, with fifth go-ing to Jeff Anderson and sixth to Leo Couadea. The next group on track was the Superlite Class-, and a tal-ented field of five did battle. Rennie Awana (#3) secured the holeshot, but his lead was short-lived, as Joe Price (#5) quickly wrestled away the pacesetters role. Doug Goodenough (#1 O) was running third before encoun-tering some problems, but there would be no problems for Price on this day. Price took the field virtually wire to wire as he pulled clear for the win. Awana did hold second, while Josh Hulsebosch (#4) placed third. Jeff Pearl (#42) and Doug Goodenough com-pleted the scoring. John Hulsebosch drove to a nice third place in the first heat and a fourth in the second heat for a good day of racing. Kathy Fay powers/ides her Desert 1600 car in the chase for the lead but she was to be denied this time. The ATV Pro Class was next up, and up they went. The aptly numbered #1 of high flyin ' Mark Ehrhardt quickly assumed the lead and the race from there was for place, as he distanced him-self from the field. The remain-ing seven Pros slugged it out for runner-up honors, with that spot eventually falling to Doug Eichnar. Ron Collins took third, followed by Steve Beilman, Scott Butler, Jack Bednar, Byron Seed, and Kory Ellis. In the short time that I've covered the PAS's ATV racing scene dating back to last year, it sure seems that Mr. Ehrhardt has a lock on things in these parts. He was without ques-tion the dominant force on this track, and continues to impress Page 22 July 1997 Dusty Times

with authoritative victories like the one in this first moto. The final race before intermis-sion was the truck event with Classes 7, 7S, and 8 represented. In Class 8 it. was everyone's fa-vorite, "Dynamite Dan" Cannon (#851) and his glistening candy apply red Ford; who bolted to the lead with the teams of Sean McKenzie and Ward Landis (#855), and Denise and Todd Wittman (#857) giving chase. Meanwhile a quartet of 7S rac-ers were also underway, with Jim Highley (#737) proving to be an elusive target from the start. Highley, was stalked most of the race by a game Rick Huseman (#736), but he hung tough to take the checkered flag. Bill Madigan (#747) was able to close in for the second spot back of Highley. Then came the third and fourth finishers, Pat Soffe (#729) and Rick Huseman re-spectively. Jayson Miles (#7 11) meanwhile, cruised to the uncon-tested Class 7 score. Following intermission, the second motos in each event were run, again starting with the "Buggy" set leading off. Marshall Ziegert was relegated to bringing up the rear for starting purposes, this as a result of his earlier moto victory. It really didn't matter though, as he skillfully picked his way through the field en route to scoring another fine win. Ron -Satter gave game chase and was closing in on Ziegert, but he sim-ply ran out real estate and was forced to settle for the second spot. It was, however, still good enough to earn him the Class 5 win. Gary Williams, the Class 10 winner, was next across the line, followed by "Big Bob" Dziurawiec, the 1/2 1600 Desert Class winner. Larry McCallum, the runner-up in Class 5 was next, followed by Jess Arwood the runner-up in l /2 1600 Desert. Following Arwood was Class 9 winner Martin Gill, and Class 11 winner Robert Henderson. Rafael Navarro and Kathy Fay rounded out the 1/2 1600 Desert results. A quick summary found Ziegert, Dziurawiec, Gill, Henderson, Satter, and Williams each taking first in their respective classes. The ATV Sportsman "Main" was a good battle with Dave Anderson racing his way to a workmanlike victory. Anderson simply got there first, displaying nothing fancy, just a good solid effort which saw him grind out the win. Anderson by virtue of his second moto victory was also declared the overall winner in class for the day. Jeremiah Akin did well to p.lace second in Moro #2, and he was followed up in third by Richard Yakkey. Next across the finish line was Jeff Anderson, whose fourth in the main earned him the overall sec-ond on the day, thus completing the "All Anderson" exacca finish in day ending results. The fifth spot went to Raul Perez, and sixth to Leo Couadea. The re-mainder of the scoring read An-thony Cresci Jr., Ray Martinez, Bert Hilliard, Matt Duhamel!, Ron Holthaus, and Hugo Perez. In the Superlite Main, again it was all Joe Price. Price put on an Page 24 The ATV races, always a hit with the fans held many many entries and they all put on a great show at the Perris finale. Doug Goodenough had a broken wing in the first heat but came back in the second for a good third place. encore performance for chose in attendance, as he blasted his way to another convincing win. Rennie Awana again held a brief lead, but Price was just too much chis day and Awana, as in the ear-lie·r moro, proved second best. Doug Goodenough improved on his earlier effort to take third, with Josh Hulsebosch just back of him in fourth, and Jeff Pearl next in fifth. It was a terrific day for Price, as he was nearly flaw-less in sweeping both heats. Ir's a thrill for all of racing when the "Price is Right", and chis day he most certainly was. The second last race on the day was for the ATV Pro's and Mark Ehrhardt was forced to start at the back of the pack, due to his first moro win. This in-verted start rule rurned out to be nothing more than a mere incon-venience for the man who has raced as if he owns the rrack. Ehrhardt quickly went from eighth to third at the drop of the green flag. Then afrer what ap-peared ro be a short breather, he sliced his way past the_remain-ing two racers and hit the front' for good. Doug Eichnar, who again rook the runner-up spot was determined to give Ehrhardt a run for his money, and he cer-tainly did just char. These two engaged in a long and spirited duel to the checkered flag, but· in the end it was again Ehrhardt who came our on top. Following Eichnar in the second moro scor-ing, was Steve Beilman who fin-ished third, followed by Scorr Butler who rook fourth. Jack Bednar was fifth, Byron Seed bested Kory Ellis for rhe sixth spot. In chis race, one of the top ATV Pro's, Ron Collins rook a _nasty fall and ex ired the course in the Med Event ambulance. He was conscious however, and left under his own power, so here's hoping Ron is o.k., and chat he makes a quick return to the local racing scene. The final race of the day was the truck event, and proved a fit-ting conclusion to the day's ex-citing action. Jim Highley, the Class 7S winner from moto num-ber one, again grabbed the holespot, and chis time it was Sean McKenzie setting the pace in Class 8. McKenzie however, came into the first turn a bit too hot and after spinning our, he ended up at the back of rhe pack. Highley experienced no such dif-ficulties on his way to outrun-ning all his truck competitors to the checkered flag. A three way battle back of Highley was waged, by "Dynamite Dan" Can-non, Denise Wittman, and Rick Huseman. Cannon exhibiting some of the talent which has seen him score five straight class championships, was able to repel all challenges and power his way to rhe Class 8 win. Huseman fin-ished next to rake second in 7S, with Wittman just back of him and second in Class 8. The final two spots in 7S for the moto went to Bill Madigan and Pat Soffe respectively, while Sean McKenzie completed the Class 8 scoring. By virtue of his first place finish in the "Main", it was the "Dynan•ite" man, Dan Can-n<'", who reigned supreme in the • l(0.1wan~u1 puv.l·1 • 01lAkrt0 • !">11111dl.Ull'Oll,..,\\ t l h 11::,l • ;'.)ll)k I lfllh• • l:.h ..

Glen Helen Short Course Chan,pionship Series - Round 3 David Anckner was the boss of the track in both heats as he swept to victory in his 5-1600 at the third round at Glen Helen. After a 49 day lull in short course off-road activity at Glen Helen, those masters of metal mayhem were at it again on April 13th. The month-and-a-half re-spite, which seemed more like a year-and-a-half, will be dwarfed by the more than three month gap between Rounds 3 and 4. "Don't be fooled however, into chinking that the off-roadies will be sitting on their bumpers until summer. Au contraire, my little perusers of print. Every direction of the compass seems to point to more and MORE and MORE RACING! Head north and there's M.O.R. and M.O.R.E. events in Barstow and Lucerne. When the hi hways split, there's always the choices of Jean or Stateline, or Laughlin or Vegas, or SNORE or SCORE. You will encounter similar decisions if you head for the border. Whether you choose Perris (PAS) in spring-time, or a summer-like trip co San Felipe, basking in Baja or even cruising to Crandon, racing opportunities seem to exist ev-erywhere! Yes indeed, all seems well with the sport as we race up to l 997's half-way sign. The theory of sup-ply and demand has never been more true than at present. That is, if you can provide first class, · crowd pleasing racing, then you are very much in demand. Com-petition is quite fierce both on the track and off, as each of the racing establishments attempt to woo the top teams and drivers to their venues. As we scale the "wall of fear", roar through the "rocker" section, and launch off of "animal leap" it has become clear that the real winner is ev-eryone! All signs seem to indicate that the second half of '97 will be marked by off-roads strongest and most successful year ever. Those doomsarers who predicted the demise o our great sport, badly underestimated the cour~ age, faith, and spirit of its le-gions.

To our dearly departed friend and editor Jean Calvin, I know you' re watching over us and both your sport and your spirit are very much alive and well. While two-thirds of the world was either watching the Long Beach Grand Prix or a cat named "Tiger" rewriting golf's record books, there was some pretty impressive driving also going on at Glen Helen. So travel back in time with me .......... as I recap "The Helen's" '97 Round Three. ., ' The day's first event was for all the ATV classes. There were four "Pro's" signed up, led by the series' points leader Ron Collins. The opener also marked the re-turn of two of last season's to pro's, Eric Cobb and Adam Campbell, as well as the series debut of Jason Greenhaw. An-other healthy cast of fourteen Intermediates, led by defending Champion Richard Yakkey took part, along with a trio of" Begin-ners". When "Gentleman Bob" dropped the green flag, another day of sizzling sport started. Ron Collins immediately vaulted co the front as has become his cus-tom. Collins led from f1agfall co that's all, and never really looked back. Eric Cobb was also visually impressive, closing the gap on Collins at times, before settling for the second spot,· and all the while showing no signs of the better than two month layoff he was coming off of. Adam Campbell finished in third, in a race that marked the fifth straight heat win by Collins. In their main event it was again the 3 C's finishing on top. Only this time it was Cobb who took the check-ered flag, and with it the overall win. Campbell came next, as he held off Collins for the runner-up spot in both heat two and day-ending results. Cobb's strong performance moved him into the second slot in points to-tals, although Collins still enjoys a clear lead. Dave Parsons soars like an eagle as he wings his way to victory in heat 2 after a second place in heat 1 for the days Overall win. ..;;;;.;;;;..;;;;;.;;.;;;;;;;,;;;;;,;-;;;-------------Steve Bishop drove to a couple of first place finishes at the Glen in Class 1 O, collecting 39 points for the day. Dwight Greene heads down the hill in his Class 8 pickup on his way to two first > place finishes in the combined 314/6/8 heats. Raul Flores takes the Toyota to another win in Class 7 at Glen Helen Round 3. Page 26 July 1997 In ATV Intermediate action, Richard Yakkey continued his mastery over the division with another stellar performance in the opener. Dave Anderson also was impressive posting a game second, followed by third place finisher Ron Holthaus. Charley Rennie, Bryan Yonan, Matt Duhamell, and Chris Alvarado rounded o~t the top seven fin-ishers in heat number one. In heat number two, Anderson was Dusty Times

Yakkey's win streak may have ended, but his streak of impres-sive performances did not, as he took second and second overall. Charley Rennie took third in the same two categories, while Dou-glas Peters scored a fourth in the main (5th overall) and Alvarado's scorecard was just the opposite. The sixth through tenth place finishers in the main were Tony Miller, Dwane Kastor, Mike Nishimoto, Joe Noon and Tony Cresci. In overall results Miller, Holthaus, Kastor, Nishimoto and c.esci completed the scoring. In the ATV Beginner Class, Rob Baumsteiger enjoyed the best day of his young career. Baumsteiger sped to a paid of vic-tories, which pulled him to within 14 points of the series' points leader. A pair of newcom-ers to the scene, Chris Pletcher and Ronnie Page, took second and third respectively in both heats and overall. Race number two featured the Superlite, Pilot, and Odyssey some problems, while defending Odyssey Class Champ Guy Savedra had neither problems nor rivals. The third race was on the day before "income tax eve" was con-tested by an interesting mesh of Classes l, 5, 9, 10, Super 1600 and 5-1600. Scott Akerley made his series debut, and his Class 1 victory was assured via the entry box. Likewise for Class Super 1600's Chad Gall, who also won unopposed. Gall looked good on the crack as he padded his lead in the seasonal points title chase. Class 9 was a good old-fash-ioned duel between two of the friendliest rivals on the grounds, Dan Mustoe and Arco Ylikangas. "Dan The Man" proved best this day, as he continued his march to-wards another championship with a fine pair of victories. Ylikangas couldn't keep pace with Mustoe, but the pride of Oolu Finland did race well enough to put 40 points between himself and the bulk of his Class 9 rivals. There were a trio of competitors in each of the remaining classes in race three. Dave Parsons and Tim Highfill made their series debuts in Class 5, and they were joined by Ron Satter. In heat number one, it was Highfill who emerged on cop. Highfill cook the checkered flag, followed in second by Parsons who held Satter safe for the runner-up spot. Things turned out differently though when these three 5 's held their rematch after the break. This time it was Parsons who claimed the win and the overall victory spoils. Satter improved on his ear-lier finish by raking second, but Highfill's heat one win carried him to the overall second spot on the day. Class 5- 1600 action saw David Anckner steal the show. Anckner was clearly the star of the class this day, as he registered a pair of styl-ish wins. Jeffrey Hantz, while un-able to stay with the winner on this occasion, was still able to score a pair of seconds and remains 25 points clear in the points chase. Rueben Torres made his debut on the circuit by caking third in the opener, before making an early exit. In Class 10, Steve Bishop kept his '97 series record unblemished, with another pair of sparkling wins. As per his style, Bishop me-thodically blitzed his competition again with relative ease. Despite piloting a vehicle that was set up for desert racing, "Fly in' Ron" Brookshire did well to score a pair of seconds in his introduction to short course racing. Adam Rasmussen tallied a pair of thirds and still sports a sizable lead in • Classes. A field of eight partici-pated, with a total of six Supers, one Pilot, and one Odyssey. In the Superlite Class, what started as a competitive six-pack, quickly became the Rennie Awana Show". Awana bolted to an early lead and was never seriously threatened, as he led from flagfall to finish. Joe Price also looked strong and was a clear second, while Stacey Fay raced well and finished third. There was more of the same in the main event, as Awana again assumed command and drew off. Price again bear everyone not named Awana, while Fay's consistency was goodenough for another third and third overall. Peter Kujundzich and Stanley Bennett finished fourth and fifth in both heats. S_ean McKenzie was only able to take a pair of third place finishes in the high flying Cline Wolsey soloed in the Pi-lot Class, despite encountering July 1997 . Class BS Chevy pickup. Denise Wittman and her BS Ford Flyer took second place twice at Glen Helen and she leads the season points as well. Dusty Times

The ATV action gets fast and furious as they scramble for position the overall points winner for the day. points going into Round 4. The final race of the day was for all the truck classes and also the only Rally Car entrant. A total of ten trucks saw action, and the one Rally vehicle on hand was driven by Shirley Bennett. Bennett teamed with her Volkswagen Rab-bit to hop ahead of any future Rally racers. With Bennett's being the only Rally car resting the Glen Helen course thus far in '97, here's an extended invitation to all Rally Class racers to come join the fun for Round 4 on July 27th. The Class 7 and Srock Mini 2WD Class victories were both won unopposed by their respective entrants. It was Raul Flores who again cruised to the Class 7 win, with an uneventful tour of the grounds. Thar's back to back wins for Flores, and likewise for Bill Barnes in the Stock Mini 2WD category. "Wild Bill" raced to his victory with a good run in heat one, before he broke the spider gears in the rear end forcing an early departure in heat number two. Not to worry though, "Wild Bill" promised char both he and "The Posse" will return. A march race was on tap in Class 8 between Dwight Greene and newcomer John Phegley. A study in contrast would best describe chis pair's fate. Greene had a virtual walk in the (Off Highway) park, compared to Mr. Phegley. Greene made it back to back wins as he flashed co a pair of easy scores. Phegley meanwhile, had a reacher rough introduction co the local scene, experiencing heat ending problems in both races. Better luck next rime though is most certainly assured. Class 7S action may have seen the defining moment in the young career of Rick Huseman. Huseman put it all together with a strong pair of runs char propelled him to the overall victory. Huseman looked like anything bur a rookie as he scored hear wins first over "Big Bob" Dziurawiec, then Stacey Pike. Pike's main event second earned him che overall second just ahead of Dziurawiec. The big three in Class BS put on their usual excellent perfor-mance. These three exceptional racers seem to cake cums beating up on each other, with a different winner emerging almost every rime. This day clearly belonged to Covina's home-grown hero "Dyna-mite Dan" Cannon. Cannon in-herited che lead early in heat one, when Sean McKenzie lost all gears except reverse. No, McKenzie didn' c drive the course in reverse, bur co chose of us who know him well, it certainly wouldn't have sur-prised us ifhe had. Meanwhile, the always cough Denise Wittman was in hoc pursuit of Cannon. It's al-ways a thrill co watch these two (of my favorite) racers do battle. Wittman made it close, bur Can-non refused co relinquish the lead Dusty Times Stacey Pike and his Ford took a third place and a second place respectively in a good Glen outing. and cook the "checks". Wittman earned che second spot, while McKenzie skillfully backed his way into third. In the finale, all three were back for more. Hats off to Mr. McKenzie who's innovativeness saw him flip his reverse gear over, thus allowing him co circle the course and score a few potentially viral points. "Dynamite Dan" meanwhile, blasted off the line and had his sights set on a Sunday sweep. Cannon appeared to have built an insurmountable lead late in che hear, but Wireman refused to go quiecly. She continued co chip away at Cannon's ·lead until traffic on the white flag lap brought the two within a truck-length of each ocher. Cannon re-pulsed one lase chal-lenge co secure the win over the ul era-game Wireman, and pull the big 3 into a virtual tie for the points lead. With Wittman caking Round 1, McKenzie Round 2, and now Cannon Round 3, things should really be hearing up in_ Round 4. Well my fnends, cha:c will just about do from my end. Congrats co all those who cook pare in racing action as things really hear up in che second half of 1997. Best wishes co our local contingent wheeling into Wisconsin for the opener of the '97 SODA series, and a very special thank you to all of you who wrote and faxed co me with your thoughts and ideas (more on char next issue). I hope co see you at the races. Round 3, and s ta Y Old Glory flew at half mast at the Glen in memory of tuned for some serious our departed Publisher, Jean Calvin. Reuben Torres made his debut at the Glen in his 5-1600, placing third in heat one but unable to answer the flag for heat two. July 1997 in some hotly contested racing. Class 7S saw Bob Dziurawiec grab a second and a third in his hunt for the season points championship. Dave Anderson had a second and a first at the Glen and was the ATV Intermediate winner for the day. Superlite action had Stacey Fay taking a pair of third place finishes home as she battles it out with the boys. Page 29

Zarfati Takes 4x4 _Into History Text & Photos: Darryl Smith History in the making as Fabio Zarfati covers the 225 mile course in 5:04:48 in the Mitsubishi Pajero to become the Class 8 winner and the first ever non buggy overall winner in the Australian desert. Well done. At the ope~ing round of the Australian Off Road Champi-onship, there were plenty of surprises; the biggest of all was the fact for the first time in Australia a buggy didn't win overall. Thar feat went to Fabio Zarfati from Sydney in his Mitsubishi Pajero 4x4. The field of 50 cars took on some very dusty conditions at Port Pirie in South Australia, and it was certainly a quality group that Zarfati beat home; in fact the rest of the top five were all world class USA imported buggies. Class One. It was obvious a lot of drivers had spent the off season making big im-provements. None so obvious than when Mark Burrows _went out in Prologue and qualified some 10 seconds faster than anyone else! His nearest class rival was Neville Boyes in 3rd spot with Eric Schmid, as usual embarrass-'I"'OVG-II OFF-ROAD FUE L CELLS All ATL Cells Carry A Full Race Approval To FT-3 Or FT-5 Regulations c& '\!:::2 l!:::!J 0 ~ Laps Ahead Of The Comp AERO Tee LABORATORIES INC. oO\ SPEAR ROAD INDUSTRIAL PARK \S 533 RAMSEY, NJ 07446-1251 5~6• TEL: 201-825-1400 • FAX: 201-825-1962 Page 36 ing the high tech machines, next in his VW bodied car. Into the race and Burrows' luck turned sour with tyre troubles, while Boyes went into the lead car spot. Brad Zacka debuted his lat-est USA import but stopped to fix a turbo pipe on the Nissan motor. By the half way mark Schmid was out with brake prob-lems. And Boyes slipped back with water leaking from the turbo. The big mover was Bob Mowbray who was now leading th~ class and was in 2nd overall. Also climbing steadily was Nev Taylor having his first desert run in Class 1 after being a VW Baja pilot for many years. Mowbray still led heading for the finish but Burrows, Boyes, and Zacka were all charging back. With only some 20 kms to go Mowbray pulled up with clutch problems. Taylor grabbed the lead spot and hung on to the fin-ish and also took 3rd overall. Zacka came in second, over Boyes, Burrows, and Nev Day. Class Two. It looked like the 1600's were going to put on a fine show after qualifying saw Tom Georgeson, Andrew Fitzgerald and Steve Burrows all very close. In to the race and Fitzgerald went out to lead, while Wayne Green rolled in his first race in this class. Burrows went out after clipping a stump in the dusty conditions. Fitzgerald meanwhile was way in front at the half way point and in fact, was up to 5th overall. His fine run came to an end just af-ter the pit when the motor let go. Coming through the field after a poor prologue was Rod Simpson and he soon assumed the lead role. At race completion July 1997 l. ~,-~--~~-~} Nev Taylor had a great race, finishing first in Class 1 in his first desert race and came in third overall as well. Rod and Jeanette Simpson took their 1600 two seater to a nice class victory, beating out the competition by over half an hour. it was Simpson taking the class win and 10th overall, nor bad after starting 37th in all the dust. Georgeson followed with Scott Moore, and Ken Collier the only other finishers. Class Three. A small field of four 1200 buggres fronted and setting the pace in prologue was Darren Perrin over fellow Kempsey driver Graeme Julius. Perrin had opened up a good lead when the motor blew on the 3rd lap. With Chris Georgeson out, Julius had to hold off Matthew Smith. De-spite a string of problems Julius went on to take the win, while Smith came in for sec-ond place. Class Five. A varied group of 2wd sedans and trucks fronted and it was John Ireland heading the times in his V8 Mitsubishi mini truck over reigning champ Robert Pagan in the turbo Mazda. These two set about staging a great duel as the race starred. The battle only ending when Ireland ran Graeme Julius signals thumbs up as he flies to victory in the 1200cc Class ·3, beating the runner-up by a bit less than nine minutes. The Pagan's, Senior and Junior were the big winners in Class 5 in their Mazda pickup, doing the course in just over six hours. Dusty Times

The sight of one Jimco Single seater in the hands of Paul Simpson is daunting enough, but debuting at this race was a second in the hands of son, Dion.

It wasn't until the last lap Siviour faltered with total lack of brakes bur McWilliam was troubled too with broken shocks. At the end Siviour took another class win over McWilliam. Whitbread came in for 3rd while Pickering went out on the last lap with motor problems. Class Eight. The modified 4x4s were headed by Fabio Zarfati's Mitsubishi Pajero with its quad cam twin turbo V6. The prologue time put Zarfati 9th overall.

Baxter had picked up the pace and was five minutes back in 4th overall. Ken Smith's Holden Rodeo sat in 3rd al-though was being pressured by ex-motorcycle champion Alan Roe in the big jumping VS Nissan. Zarfati continued to reel off fast laps despite the in-July 1997 termittent loss of power steer-ing. By lap 4 he found himself leading the race overall. Baxter slipped back after a tyre change. Roe too has eased off a touch.

--"THE STRAIGHT POOP FROM THE BIG WAHZOO" The current shake out of excess promoters on California's high desert racing scene appears to be coming to an unusually quick end this time around. Peralta, who had by far the best area to race on, ap-parently is now exclusively a "wa-ter sports' promoter. With well over 200 entries at a recent Colo-rado River race, Lou is reportedly now happy and dust free while promotin' personal water craft races at a bikini-ville near you. No, no, Peralta was not the winner at this shake out. The smartest maybe, but not the winner. California's high desert chief low buck promoter is Mojave Desert Racing. At every race this promoter has seen his entries go up 15 to 20 cars. His latest event had almost 70 cars leave the starting line (Club report follows). Hey, with a little common sense from the non-be-lievers and some help from the cherry pickers, we could all get back to some serious local racin' around here. It's not inconceivable that upstart MOR could soon be puttin' on hundred car events, which would be a little more like it. I mean, the Checkers never view more competition in a race as a problem. Just more guys to beat and more money in the pot. Con-gratulations to Paul Duffy and his Mojave Desert Racing for an im-pressive start. NOTE: This Wahzoo plays no favorites when it comes to off road promoters. I'd salute Daffy Duck ifhe could draw a good entry and not repeatedly cry to bullshit us. On the other hand, promoters of weak suck races and/ or little integrity will find no sanc-tuary here. THE ONLY WAY TO KEEP UP ON OFF ROAD/ SUBSCRIPTIONS ARB $20.00 FOR ONE YEAR, $30.00 FOR TIVO YEARS Mojave Off Road Enc. is still running a local racing series in the Barstow/Lucerne areas. But MORE's entries started out small and have steadily fallen to now down near the teens. The Check-ers have been sending only one member up to run MORE's races, and so far Greenway has overalled about half of them with one of his Class 10 rides. Clements is abouc-history. a075!

It was five laps around a 40 mile loop and the weather was bitchin'! Four well mannered Checker pits provided friendly trail side service around the course for all our Club's entries. And interestingly enough, three of the pit captains volunteer-ing at this race were prospective members. I'm proud to report that Jason Devos, "Pops' McCool, and Rob Marley all performed admira-bly in their first significant stab at Checker excellence in the desert.

Good run Craig. Peter and Josh Rosenstein got their power blue single seat 1/2 1600 car back our in the desert at this race, and had a good run with it. Suffering only a few minor problems, this team of Checker brothers charged on to a fine 4th place finish in this competitive class. Nor too bad for a couple of guys who've been busy elsewhere of late. I mean, 'baywatch' just became a full fledged paramedic for L.A. County and can now actually give rhe rli i~ ks mouth to mouth after res-cuing them from the surf. And Pe-re r, who recently gor himself elected as rhe Club's Treasurer, has been way busy managing all our money! Way to go, guys. Prospective member Bob Wright, alias 'Big Air', was lead-ing rhe 5/ 1600 Class when sud-denly one of his rear wheels fell off.? A rescue crew was promptly sent out with an axle nut and cot-ter key and finally got chis ex-FAIR member airborne again. Now run-ning last in his 13 car class, 'Big Air' steadily worked his way back up through the limited Baja Bugs despite some other problems to a respectable 5th place at the finish. Jeff Lothringer saw his l /2 1600 ride break a stub axle five miles into the first lap. After repairs were made, the team continued on to an 8th in class. Tucker and McGee were really flyin' in their Class 10 car till they lose another motor while dicing for the overall. Mean-while, Capt' Hook and 'Blondie' went racin' in Jimmy's new Chal-lenger car. And, I think all the pits around the course would readily agree that 'Jimmy don't know shit about ball joints'. Every pie worked on broken ball joints on Jimmy's car sometime during the race. Ac a number of his prolonged stops, BJ was reportedly overheard swearing he'd "never get into one of those things again". Mercifully, the time limit finally put an end to their misery for a well deserved DNF. Aichough the Checkers didn't earn any 1st place finishes at this race, it was a good and well attended Club event. BITS & PIECES -Congratula-tions to Bruce Tiffany who recently got married. Hey Tiff, how's this turn of events gonna affect your buddy TQ Midget career? A new substantially slimmer Steve Brown earned an impressive 3rd place main event finish in the Hibbard/ Brown dwarf car out at Ventura Speedway. And, Billy Robertson and Doug Brown got a 4th in class and 4th overall among 75 entries up at Lou's recent Laughlin race for Seadoos and such. Good show, guys! MEETING CHANGES - Bare with me here, 'cause Hibbard got involved in some major fine run in' of our simple I sr & 3rd of the month routine and our new meet-ing schedule is nor all char easy to explain. From now rill the end of the year, our regular Wednesday night meetings will be in no par-ticular order! They are scheduled around Club supported races and ocher Checker events, both prior and after each outing. So, obvi-ously everybody's gonna have to ger a printed schedule cellin' ya which Wednesday nights they are. And, they' re only gonna cost ya $2 a piece. No, no, just kiddin' about rhe money part. A Club newslet-ter has been senr out to everyone on our active roster with a copy of chis new Wednesday night meet-ing schedule. You oughca duct cape it to either your refrigerator door, the wall behind the toiler, or some-where else you'll see ir often enough chat you won't have to re-peatedly ask, "Hey man, is there a meeting next Wednesday?" There'll also be copies of chis new schedule available at every meeting. Or, here are the daces of the Wednesday night meetings for the next four months: JUNE 11 ch, 18th, 25th; JULY 9th, 16th, 23rd; AUGUST 13th; SEPTEMBER 3rd, I Och, and 24th. le kinda looks like we're probably gonna be meeting at the Lamplighter Restaurant on Van Nuys Blvd. in Sherman oaks for a bit longer. AND FINALLY, here's an inter-esting follow up on Joy, FAIR's new Iii' lady reporter and Checker harrasser. Seems some of the guys know her racer husband and report that he'd just love to come over and join the Checkers, but the little woman will have none of it. Her main complaint is said co be our no women rule. Hey Joy, it might surprise ya, but this Wahzoo agrees with you 100%. The very last place a gal oughca loosen up the leash on the old man is around a bunch of Checkers on a Wednesday night. I mean, we Checkers have way too much fun co cake a foolish chance like that.

Well, keep in mind I haven't re-ceived any official list from SCORE or any direct communica-tion from the racers. This is my best knowledge of what happened.

RES~fAURANT OPEN 24 HOURS '· , · • I . - -· ........ SERVICE EVERY DAY YEAR ROUND THE BEST IN THE DESER.T Dusty Times I can't forget to mention a couple more issues, especially the FAIR van repair. Before the PRIMM 300 race the FAIR van was in pretty bad shape. Thanks to T & J's OFF ROAD shop, they re-placed a head, bad cylinder, re-placed bushings, and a complete valve job. They also found some failure with the carburetor that was July 1997 repaired and now everyone says the van never ran so good! They real-ized how important it was for the FAIR van to get to the PRIMM, so they really knocked themselves out to get the van going. Thanks again you guys! Since volunteering has been a sore subject at meetings lately, it's refreshing to see mem-bers who can find different ways of volunteering their efforts. I heard that just yesterday the FAIR campour at Bessimer Mine RD, was hot bur a lot of fun. I know that the turnout was not as much as last year, but members managed to do a lot of cave hunt-ing and walking the fire pit. I am sure I will have more details for next month's issue. This is the 2nd issue of FAIR NEWS for me, and you know, I generally am well informed on FAIR events and races because I see it first had. I apologize my column is not as descriptive as THE BIG WAHZOO, but I am open for sug-gestions. If anyone would like to step up to the plate and share some commentary ... feel free. The next meeting is May 7th, and a lot has happened since the last meeting April 16th, almost three weeks ago. Keep in mind FAIR Board elec-tions are coming soon. This is your chance, if you want co elect a mem-ber to the Board. Don't miss the next four meetings.
