We first met Bob at Peterson Publishing many years ago and we worked closely with him when he was the publicist for the Mickey Thompson Stadium Races where he was widely known and admired, always having what you needed on a moments notice and always with a smile. Bob was a founding member and charter president of ARRWBA. Bob and his wife Shirley lived in Covina, CA. He will be sorely missed. ATTENTION BAJA 1000 PARTICIPANTS AND CREWS. Regarding the new immigration permits required to travel south of Ensenada. If you are going into the.interior for the race, be advised that the checkpoint at Maneadoro on Mexico l will no longer be checking for the new, hard to understand documents we told you about last month, ·and therefore there is no fee required. Evidently, the Mexican government is responding to many complaints from tourists who have had to spend many long hours in line performing the various chores required for the permit and we are informed that the Mexican government is looking very closely at the law, perhaps for revoking or for amendment. Stay tuned! CORR IN CONNECTICUT -The CORR folks were way back on the east coast last weekend, strutting their stuff at Stafford Motor Speedway. Johnny Greaves sewed up the 1999 Championship in Pro-Lite, his second in a row. He won Round 13 outright and placed seventh in Round 14 and the Pro-Lite crown was his. Jeff Kincaid is second in points, Chris Brandt Jason Degrave, Art Schmitt and Billy Bowles are next in order. Scott Taylor cinched the PRO-2 championship at Stafford also. Scotty finished first in Round 13 and was second in Round 14 and that gave him the championship. He bested Dan Vanden Heuvel, Jamey Flannery, Carl Renezeder, R.J. Flanagan and Evan Evans.

SCORE PRIMM 300 Herbst Wins once Again By Judy Smith Photos: Trackside Photo Once he solved his electrical problem, Mark Bqnderson ran hard to win the Class 9 race by seven minutes. Danny Anderson soloed his Class 10 Jimco to victory, for his second win this year, and also finished seventh overall at SCORE's Primm 300. were catching the last of the start-ers, folks who'd taken the green flag only 10 or 15 minutes ago. Now the dust was truly horrific, and a few of the limited racers, wise to the way of things, simply pulled off the course and waited until the Trophy Trucks had gone by. Still, many were making their way, each one just out of the other fella's dust, moving as quickly as possible. The Trophy Trucks threaded their way through them gingerly. Then at Pit B, about 50 miles into Lap 2, Herbst pulled in If ever a race could be de-scribed with one word it was this one. Dust. Troy Herbst recorded an aver-age speed of 57.9 miles per hour in his Smithbuilt Class 1 car, and won his second overall victory in a row, carefully threading his way through traffic in the uncom-monly heavy dust. SCORE notified its racers just days before the event that due to a BLM error, it would need to make a last minute change in the course. The BLM had given a cattle rancher a permit to graze 300 head of cattle in an area that's been a major part of this course for many years. Unfortunately, they neglected to inform SCORE of this boondoggle until very late in the game. SCORE personnel hurriedly laid out a new track, which, while it started and fin-ished in the same area, adjacent to the Buffalo Bill's parking lot, was different from the old course for about 75% of its mileage. This course even crossed under the·15 Freeway, and then traveled south-ward parallel to it; re-emerging from a.nother underpass back on the east side. There were two pavement crossings, one at the well-traveled Goodsprings Road, which every-one involved would have pre-ferred not to have included in a well thought out course, but the last minute nature of the proceed-ings made it unavoidable. The new course measured about 10 miles less than the original, for a total mileage of 293. Brad Rowland, first time SCORE racer, soloed to the 112-1600 victory in his Porter chassis.

Kreg Donahoe, still running a Class 8 truck while he slowly builds a new Trophy Truck, couldn't finish the second lap either. On the third lap the traffic had thinned a bit, and Roeseler's time crept back up. He'd had one flat changed, and also took on a new air filter as the first one clogged with dust.

By then no-one cared about the puddle of oil forming beneath it as it sat in the post-race area. The Herbsts lost first gear late in the day, but didn't miss it, and took second place, finishing 13 minutes back. In third it was Coates, a little over an hour later; The Class 1 cars went next, apprehensively eyeing the cloud of motionless dust left behind by the big trucks. For quite a few of these drivers the first lap, usually their quickest, was their slowest, as they tried to find the unfamil-iar course in the hovering dust cloud. They later described their anxiety as they tried to find a happy medium between too fast and too slow. They wanted to go just fast enough that someone coming from behind wouldn't crash into them, but also slow enough that it would be possible Continued on page 8 ~--------~------------~ .,,,---.,.-:-=,,,-.,.,.---,-.-....------,-,,,,,,-, Bekki Freeman and Adam Wik finished fourth in 1600, with no floor Jim Zupanovich & Dick Weyhrich put their years of experience to Jerry Penhall and George Erl finished a close third in the SCORE Lite pan under the driver/co-driver area of their Jimco. good use, finished fourth in their SCORE Lite Mirage. class in their Penhall, a flat tire making the difference.

George Seeley had big brake problems, but still took the win in Class 5, which had a 100% finish record. Charlie Bignell and Eric Deen had a trouble free day, but didn't like the dust, as they took the win in 5-1600. John Holmes and Dave Callaway teamed up in their Dunrite again, to get the win in the SCORE Lite class. Larry Roese/er had fast lap of the day in his Chevy Trophy Truck, took the class win, his first for the season. fine sixth place overall, with four good laps, including a fast time of 1:16:04 on the fourth lap. The Protrucks went off the line next, and Rick Johnson put his Ford into the early lead, with about four and a half minutes on Grayson Smith in another Ford. In third it was Joe Heger in a Chevrolet, about 10 minutes back. The first two cars ran almost identical laps their second time around, and Johnson stayed in front, still about four and a half minutes ahead of Smith. On the third lap Johnson re-corded the fast lap for the class, at 1:25:13, and the lead grew to almost 10 minutes.

Brady Helm and Jerry Griffin, in a Lothringer, ran fourth now, while Courteney and co-driver Don Kenniston ran fifth. Of the 20 starters in this class, 11 were already gone. But Anderson was having no trouble, not even one flat. He stopped one time to take on fuel and then stormed on to take his win, backing up his Barstow vic-tory. He was once again high in the overall standings, placing sev-enth overall. Anderson said he was a "happy man." He had nearly a half hour cushion on the Myers family, who finished second, re-porting three flat tires for their day. In third it was B.J. Baldwin, a Las Vegas racer, in a Chenowth, only three minutes behind second place. Courtenay and Kenniston moved up to fourth, and were fol-lowed in by Mark Hutchins and Kevin Soder, another local team, in a Jimco. All told, only eight Class 10 cars managed to finish. It was interesting to note that of the three local teams who ran in this class, all were finishers. In this case did familiarity with the con-ditions help? They didn't know the course particularly, because it was new to everyone, but they do understand silt, dust and r9cks in Southern Nevada. The SCORE Lite cars went off the line next, and John Holmes put his Dunrite out in front, lead-ing by six minutes when they emerged from the dust at the end of Lap 1. Jerry Penhall had his Penhall in second place, followed by Steven Greinke, two and a half minutes later, in a Suspensions Unlimited car. In fourth it was Kevin James, in a Chenowth, while Brian Coneen ran fifth in a Jimco.

Craig Turner ran sec-ond in his Ford, with Eli Yee in third in his Ford. Barry Karakas and Steve Nelson, in a Toyota Tacoma, had the misfortune to break that ball joint in front of the Herbst Trophy truck, and they ·were done for the day. On the second lap Lewis built his lead to about 14 minutes, while Turner stayed firm in sec-ond place. Yee was still in third, but was having fuel pick-up problems and kept running out of gas. Lewis, so far having smooth going, had an hour and 44 min-utes lead at the end of the third lap, and it was a good thing, be-cause he had to pull into his pit for a power ste~ring pump change. Turner, who'd spent about two hours with some re-pair, was still second, while Ron Smith, in a GMC Sonoma, now ran third. Yee's co-driver, Perry McNeil, had fallen to fourth, still dealing with the fuel pick-up problems. They also had a tranny fluid lead, and ultimately added 12 quarts for the day. On the last lap, with traffic thinned out and a slight breeze to clear the course, Lewis ran the fast lap for the class at 1:25:02 on what must have been a very rough and dug out track. He took the win with a bit over two hours cushion on Turner, who was second. Yee and Mc-Neil kept their truck running long enough to take third place and Smith finished in fourth, about 10 minutes before he would have run out of time. The 7S truck started next, and first to be in trouble was Bruce Landfield in his Ford, with word coming over the ra-dio that he was at Mile 10 hav-ing the "same engine problem" he'd had the night before. He never did get back into race mode.

The Stock Full trucks, which ran only three laps, were next to take off. Marc Stein and Mike McComas paired in their Ford and were in front all the way. Stein started, with McCo-mas riding, and at the half-way point, midway through Lap 2, McComas took over and drove to the finish. Their only diffi-culty had been a severely bent wheel on the second lap, and they took the win with three hours to spare. Their first lap h ad been the quick one, at 1:51:07.

In sec-ond it was the Iribes, followed in by the Gaspers, who had no flat tires on this tough course. In fourth it was the Ledezmas, Elias driving the final two laps, and dealing with a broken rack and pinion as well as a total of three flats for the day. The Pavolkas came in about four minutes later, reporting that the Ledezmas had passed them when they'd broken a throttle cable. They'd also had a flat. Class 3, which was to drive only three laps here, went off the line next, and John Kearney had his Isuzu Amigo in front at the end of Lap 1, with live min-utes on Sue Mead, a journalist who was driving Darren Skilton's Kia.

Doug MacArthur and Gary Haugley bent their Chenowth's front end, but still took the Sportsman Buggy win. third° in his old winged Bronco, another five minutes back, and Keith Belhasen, in a Jeep, ran fourth,. a couple of hours down after radioing that he needed a drive shaft early in the morning. He'd had to weld a U-bolt to get things back together. Skilton took over the driving on Lap 2, while Mead moved to the passenger seat, and they were in the lead by-about an hour and 15 minutes at the end of the lap. Kearney, driving a bit too hard for this course, broke his rear trailing arms, which pulled the drive shaft.out of its mount. By the time he'd re-paired the damage he'd lost an hour and it was too late to ·try to catch Skilton. Kovel was still third, and Belhasen a distant fourth. Skilton's final lap was the fast one for the class, at 1:48:07, and he took the win by two hours. Kearney ambled home in second place, and Belhasen driving with a sticky throttle, was happy to get a third place, only 20 minutes before his time would have run out. Class 9 ran all four laps here, a tough assignment for them. Daniel Mora, Jr., went to the front right away, leading by about four minutes in his dad's Chen-owth, with Jimmy Messick second in his M & T Chassis. In third it was Eric Fisher, in a Garibay Challenger, and_ behind him, Mark Bunderson, in a Bunderson. He'd ground to a stop when a wire fell off his ignition, and once it was reattached, and he tried to start up again, the battery died. He sat for a long time trying to think what to do, then he un-plugged his radio and there was enough battery to start the car. He said that after that "it was se-rious catchup" time. David Vieira was a victim of the dust, indi-rectly. A~ he ran steadily along on his first lap, the Herbst Trophy Page 16 Truck coming fast, suddenly saw him.through the dust, tried to stop and bumped him. It wasn't a hard hit, but it caught his oil cooler which was mounted in the rear somehow, and broke it, effectively ending his race. At the end of Lap 2 Mora, Jr., was 11:ill in the lead, with three minutes on Messick. Fisher was still third. Bunderson was mov-ing faster than any of them, but had a long way to go. Jesus Luna got hit by a pick-up truck, which destroyed a rear wheel and tire, and once Jesus had made repairs, the starter was bad. He lost a bunch of time. Messick lost his transmission on the third lap, and Mora, Jr., stayed in front, now only 13 sec-onds ahead of Fisher who was getting faster with each lap. Bundersort was now third, a little over a minute behind him, and suddenly it was a brand new race. Bill Rodriguez had taken over for Luna and they were now fourth. On the last lap Bunderson ticked off the fast lap for the class at 1:46:29, to move to the front and victory circle. He took the win by seven minutes, and it was Fisher in second, reporting no problems but having to stop three times to clean his eyes. Once again, he finished without a hood, due to some work on the radio. If he could keep a hood on the car he'd probably have less eye trouble. Mora, Jr., put his dad in for the last lap, and he said the torsion bar on the right side gave out, giving him a rough ride. They were ·third. Rodriguez got out of his car and put Lobsam Yee in for the last lap, and Yee broke the limiter straps and then a shock. But they finished fourth. The Sportsman Buggies went next, and they were obliged to run only three laps. Doug MacArthur had his Chenowth in front, with Walter Prince running second in his Raceco, after losing a power steering belt. In third it was Wallace Hrdlicka, and Steve Knudson ran fourth. MacArthur had crashed hard on the first lap and bent both front trailing arms, but he held his lead, though he also had a couple of flats. Meanwhile, Doug Browne in Prince's Candy Cane Special had a clean lap and held second. Both of the other cars failed to come around again. Gary Haugley got in to finish up in MacArthur's car, and he . recorded the fast lap for the class, at 1:3.4:35 and went on to take the win. Marq Prince, do-ing the last lap in the striped wonder, got out on the dry lake and rolled it over. This was traumatic, si.nce it landed on its roof destroying both roof top candy canes as well as flatten-ing both rear tires. Then they discovered that the jack didn't work. After about an hour they were running again, and came in to finish second. In the Sportsman Trucks, which also ran only three laps, Mark Cline put his Chevy in front right away, and just stayed there. It wasn't .as easy as it sounds, because being at the back of the pack the dust was really heavy for this class and they wandered off course a couple of times. He also noted that he was used "as a bumper" by one of the faster trucks. Chuck Foreman, his only com-petition, did one very long lap, and then didn't come around again. Cline kept moving along, his fast lap being a 2:39:49, to get all three laps done and record another victory. In Class 11 lhere was only one entry, and they negotiated down to a two lap requirement. And it was not easy to get them done. Terry Kiely, Eric Solor-zano and Miguel Haro shared the driving, and it took them nine hours and 16 minutes to get to the finish. They started out by being stuck at the edge of the dry lake, then wisely they pulled up onto the railroad berm to wait for the Trophy Trucks to roar by as they went into their second lap, thus avoiding a possible disaster. Then, on their second lap they had a flat and broke a c.v. at the same time on a nasty rock hill. Re-pairs took a long time. But they got it done, and earned another finish for their record. What at first blush had seemed like a nightmare for SCORE, and took a lot of extra work and time, turned into a race course that everyone liked. If it hadn't been for the dust there would have been no complaints. Sal Fish, SCORE's CEO, regrets that it's · not a course that can be used again. For one thing, it includes highway crossings, which he al-ways wants to avoid if possible, · and for another, it went way too close to the prison at Jean, which made the warden nervous and had him threatening to stop the race at one point. He didn't want people running around in off rnad. vehicles so close to his facility. SCORE's next event will be the Baja 1000, a loop race this year, presumably starting and finishing in Ensenada or nearby.

49TH NESTE RALLY OF FINLAND Kankkunen Wins on Home Ground By Martin Holmes Photos: Maurice Selden Juha Karikkunen and Juho Repo at high speed in their Subaru on tneir way to the NESTE' win before an appreciaiive audience. ., Subaru finally has a car, which has won every round of i:he World Rally Champion-ship. Juha Kankkunen won his second everit of the sea-'son, the: third win for ·suba-·ru, taking advantage of the retirement of Tommi Maki-nen who retired with ·clutch 'input shafr' problems. The controversial television live . stage scenario was back again, w'ith more controversy. A sudden downpour handed the stipple mental points of retired rally drivers and denied the drivers who reached the ffn-ish from gaining a good time. Kankkunen's win was the 23rd of his career, more than any other driver has achieved in WRC, but Makinen is still well ahead in Drivers Points. Toyota has pulled even fur-ther ahead in the Manufac-turers Points and there are still four more contests before the season is over. The .Neste Rally Finland, recently known as the "1000 Lakes" was the tenth round of 14 in the 1999 WRC. The rally is held on closed public gravel goads in central Fin-land and it attracted an ex-ceptionally strong entry. There were 11 manufacturers teams represented and all seven teams registered for the full FIA World Championship were entered and 9fficial ~ars from Hyundai, Renault a'nd VW contested the World 2 'Liter Cup. · . . , · · To\iota. cpntinu.ed fo. te·a.d the Manufacturers Points by a large. amount and Tommi M akinen· also' had a,' com-m.anding lead in the, D,rivers Series. The competition was closer in both the Teams Cup series with Lufs Clii;nent and Frederick Dor's private team and in the Group N series wh.ere Gustavo Trelles was leading Hamad Al WahaibL Toyota's team comprised the only two non-Scandina-vians ever to win this event. Didier Auriol and Carlos Sainz are both driving new cars this year. Mitsubishi's Ralliart's engineers fitted higher gear ratios for higher top speeds while the future plans for Tommi Makinen, the only top driver whose contract expires at the end of 1999, was a topic for specula-tion. Subaru had a dream it wanted fulfilled: Finland was the only round of the series that they had not won. No other team had yet won ev-ery event in the current WRC calendar. Since the Scroolis, their last WRC outing, Skoda had gained their first ever WRC win in the Octavia, at the f. Bohemia Rally; the first over-all win for this car and the first outright victory for Sko<;ia _in . any major championship rally for 19 :years i. Armin Schwarz had not di:iven here since·•93 . arid Emil Triner had never .. drivei:i, h,e·re in a turbocharged car.· Triner, who has often competed 10 Finland in small . engine F2 cars, ~as heard ,to s.ay, "It was the. first time I have. ever had to use iny brakes. ori. a rally car in this country!" · The Neste Rally Finland continued its special tradi-tions and its popular appeal. It is the rally with the fastest special stages on closed road sections in the championship. It attracted the highest num-ber of entries since the early '90s. There were 148 starters in 1991 and there were 13 1 entered rhis year. Makinen was hoping to win the same World Championship Rally for the fifth consecutive time. His win last year equaled the fo.ur successive wins of Shjekhr Mehta on the Safari in 1979-1982. This round of the series de-mands special techniques, try-ing to learn the stages on which the organizers have al-lowed three rather than the usual two passes over each stage beforehand. With strict Unaware of the pleasant scenery, Jouko Puhakka and Jakke Honkanen churn through the gravel on their way to first Group N. speed limits in force befor~ the rally, it is quite difficult for newcomers to this event to prepare for driving these roads at very high speeds. The various theories ad-vanced for success at this rally as related by various test en-gineers, team managers and drivers run the entire gamut. "Maximum traction and trying to stop the cars from flying." "The skill and confidence of the drivers and the high speeds means that engine per-formance_ is .also very impor-tant." "Being able to con-stantly maintain high speeds witho:ut unnecessarily lifting off the throttle." "Optimum driveability as well as-making the car fly well" and "maxi-mum driver confidence and high speed stability.'' Obvj-ously ,atl of the above are im.-pprtant. . , · Makinen .was. -constantly questio11ed about his plans for nex,t season. "I will deci9e soon afte('the ~ally" was all he would say. McRae hinted that Tommi would not fit in well at Ford while Sainz said he came this year to Finland less confident than in the past. Delecour said the challenge for Peugeot was divided, "there are two rallies, one for the Finns and one for us." In fact, at the end of the first day there were only four Finns in the top 10. (There were 71 Finn teams entered in the rally.) Leg 1 -Seven stages, gravel, 82 kms. Subarus were defi-nitely on form. First, Kank-kunen then Richard Burns dominated the opening stages of the rally while Makinen struggled on the mostly dry roads running first car on the road. The two Subaru drivers were running fourth and sixth respectively. The conditions varied widely and rapidly, from hot sunshine to cool heavy rain. Did the running order give Subaru their edge? "Maybe, but we did a lot of testing for this event" said Juha Repo, Kankkunen's co-driver. The rally began at a very fast pace, the first stage was won at a speed of 132 kph. Once again, the Toyotas were going reliably. Sainz was not complaining but Auriol said his car was understeering too much while accelerating. Toni Gardmeister spun and stalled the engine at the end of a long straight and that cost him some time. The Fords were not having. a good day. Radstrom was fastest but his car was jumping out of gear and McRae said his car was ,handling -badly. Grist also •. mentioned the pa.c~notes ·were _ too slow.

He made it to the end of the stage but then was forced to retire and Triner went off the road on Stage 5 and lost some time. The highest non-works driver was Markko Martin who never seemed to have the right tires on his Toyota Co-rolla.

The most· important battle of the day was the chase by Burns of Car-los Sainz. It took two stages for Burns to catch Sainz. "I just could not match the pace of the Subarus" Sainz la-mented. Auriol was in despair and the team withdrew the entry to give themselves as much time as possible to change the central differential for the final stage. Kankkun-en reached the end of the 19th stage with both left side tires flat but he had only lost a few seconds. Radstrom's car was finally going better after · changing the turbo. His car was also withdrawn then to be ready for the televised stage·. Granholm tried hard to·catch McRae, but with no success. Burns was gradually catching the leader, Kankkunen, there were no team orders, "With Sainz close behind we cannot ease off now!" McRae, mean-while was having serious en-gine problems. He lost over a minute on the penultimate stage and drove very carefully to the final stage. Kankkunen came to the fi-nal stage less than enamored about the live stage to follow. "I am not sure these TV stages are such a good idea", and that was before the stage actually happened. Burns admitted the points were out of proportion. Other drivers felt it was not in the spirit of the rally to vol-untarily retire from the main event just to get extra service time. Under the special rules, the retired cars, Makinen, Auriol and Radstrom did the stage first , and then followed a heavy downpour and for a while the conditions were ter-rible . The weather made a mockery of the whole thing! For McRae, his rally was over just a kilometer from the fin-ish as in a cloud of smoke, on live TV as a piston broke. Gardmeister had bad interior visibility; his car slid wildly on the road and it was a disaster. Solberg continued to gain ex-perience though he was far be-hind and Touhino in the other Escort was driving cautiously with high engine temp~rature and a wheel bearing failure, but he kept going. He reached the finish with no brakes but he still finished in the top ten. Delecour struggled to the fin-ish, with the car still very dif-ficult to drive, but Peugeot achieved their first ambition, all three cars had finished! In Group N; Puhakka and Paasonen were going very carefully. Paasonen was hav-ing · gearbox troubles and Trelles was·worried about en-gine temperature but he had to retire when a punctured tire damaged the wire ·1oom. Mitsubishi took the top nine places in the category. In For-mula 2, Alister McRae, with a less powerful engine could not hold off the second Renault of Rowe and then McRae also had power steering failure. Not good days for Hyundai, especially on the eve of the presentation of their next project, the World Rally Car. In the manufacturers race, Toyota still has a command-ing lead with 85 points. Suba-ru has 68, Mitsubishi 59, Ford 35, SEAT 16 and Skoda and Peugeot have three each. Drivers standings are: Makinen 48, Auriol 38, Kankkunen and Sainz 34, Burns 29, Colin McRae 23, Bugalski 20, and many more down the line. In 2 Liter M anufacturers Cup, Renault has 89 points, Hyundai has 59 and Volks-wagen has 21 .

30TH ANNUAL SNORE 250 Ron Runs Roughshod By John Calvin Photos: Trackside Photo Ken and Clay Flippin took the Class 10 honors, they only had one flat tire to mar their otherwise perfect day. There was no stopping Ron Brandt and co-driver Chuck Sudbury, taking the Class 1 win and the overall and he won the Russell Job Memorial Trophy as well. Dwaine and Rob Walters split the driving, had o trouble free run and took the coveted Class 9 win at the SNORE 250. The flagship race of the Southern Nevada Off Road En-thusiasts had its 30th running late in September at Nellis Dunes, just a hop skip and a jump from Nellis Air Force Base. The race consisted of four 63 mile laps and as usual, Kenny Freeman had found some of the best and the roughest territory available to test the nine classes of cars and their drivers.

Jeff Carr went on to win the hotly contested 1600 race in his Mirage race car. · race, John Gaughan took the early lead, although it was a slim one, he led Ron Brandt by only 38 seconds as they started Lap 2. Billy Goerke came along a bit later, he was having problems in the Brian Collins car and was over half an hour off the pace. Lonnie and Don Hembolt bravely took off at the green flag but were never seen again, not compieting the first °lap. Billy Goerke leaves lots of body panels around the course but his chase of first place in Class 1 was in vain. On Lap 2, Ron Brandt moved into the lead, whfch was substantial, as Gaughan was having problems of a serious nature and failed to complete his second lap. Billy Goerke was still having problems but had picked up the pace a bit and was now in the second spot, albeit an hour behind the leader on time. Brandt was having a good run as he finished his third lap in very good time and Goerke was once again slowing down but was still in the race. Lap 3 ended, Ron Brandt handed the car over to Chuck Sudbury, reminding him there were no rear brakes and then sat back to await the out-come. Sudbury came around in good time and the win was theirs. Brandt and Sudbury were the SNORE 250 overall win-ners and Goerke faded into the sunset, not finishing his last lap. Goerke's problem was not the new steering rack, just installed after the Ely race, but was directly related to steering and gave him only a DNF for a hard day's work. The Class 10 contest was a good one with nine cars on the starting line and all re,3dy to go.

Gene Griepentrog was having problems as he was 10 minutes off the pace and only completed the first lap before terminal ills put him on the trailer.Jeff Shiroky and Kevin Colan were also having troubles and they too only got one lap into the books this day.

Anyway, assuming Brian was first across the line on Lap 1, there followed in close succes-sion J~ffCarr, Pat Dean and Ed Pauley, all with identical lap times. -Sammy Ehrenberg was next, only nine seconds off the pace. Bryan Anderson was next at 1:18:37, then came Robbie Guevera with 1:18:43, closely followed by Day Gang with nice 1: 18:46.. Rick Boyer came across at 1:20:19, then Dayne Bracken turning the clock at 2:25:02 and he was followed in by Brad Mau-rer, then Chris Hansen and the car of Andy Anderson never completed the fir~t lap. Brian Anderson turned a nice 1: 16:09 on his second lap and took the class lead. Jeff Carr and Pat Dean turned identical lap times on both the first and second laps and were tied in second. Rick Boyer moved into the fourth spot while Ed Pauley came across the line in fifth with two quick laps and Sammy Ehrenberg was running sixth. Day Gang was in seventh spot and she was followed by Dayne Bracken, although not too closely. Robby Guevera was next, then Brad Maurer, fol-lowed by Chris Hansen and Brian Freeman. Rick Boyer never completed his third lap and joined the DNF brigade. As Lap 3 came to a close it was still Brian Ander-son in front. He led Jeff Carr by six seconds and it don't get much closer than that! Day Gang had moved into the third spot in her almost new Bruce Fraley machine although she was suffering from dehydration. Who forgot to put the water bottle in the car? Sammy Ehrenberg was running third and Ed Pauley was in the fourth Dusty Times

Ah, the Good Old Days ' 'SNORE Celebrates Thirty 2505 By John Calvin Mears in a Hi-Jumper, Bob Mac-Cachren in a Sandwinder, Jerry McDonald in a Joe MacPherson Blazer, Bryce Whelchel in a Baja Bug, Bill Foster in his VW, the venerable Bob Rhine in a VW Tow'd, Lonny Hawkins in an unknown, Bill Vlcek in a Corvair, Bill Johnson in a Sandmaster Sheriff, Judy Smith in a Sandmaster Hustler, Gene Hirst and Rick James in a Sandmaster, Drino Miller in a Fuoco, Doug Fortin in a Corvair, Jon Block in an un-known, Jerry Lawless in a VW, our own Jean Calvin in her 1200cc VW, Rod Hall and the ever casual Jim Fricker in a Bill Stroppe Bronco. Don Dayton sent me the re-sults from all the SNORE 250s, 1970 through 1998 and that too is a wonderful cross section of the old and the new, the lucky and the consistent. For ex-ample, Rod Hall and Jim Fricker won their class twice over the years, Bob Leighton and Dave Wallace won twice, Doug and Don Robertson won twice, Rob MacCachren has won his class four times, Jack Irvine and Kit Trenholm won a couple of times, the racing doctors, In-gram and Sauers won their class, Jim and Mark Temple won twice, Brian Collins has won his class three times, Tommy Brad-ley Jr. has a pair of wins to his credit and the list goes on and on. The SNORE 250 has always been a tough race·and this year will not be an exception. There will be a lot of new faces this year and, hopefully a lot of the old ones will be there too. So many of these names bring back different memories, most of them good, some of them not so good. So many people we ha~e known over the years, some of them still with us and active in the sport, others hav-ing gone off to other ventures and some just not here anymore. But, the greatest thing is to see the new faces, the young faces, both male and female who are competing in the SNORE races. They are the future of our sport and they are a wonderfully com-petitive bunch and I'm sure they'll be around for a long time. Just a thanks to the drivers and all the SNORE people who make it all happen. A special thanks to Michael Gaughan who has helped off road racing over the years, and to some of the folks who are or were always there to help Dusty Times with our needs. Thanks to you all. ■ Kenny Freeman sent me a copy of the program for the third annual SNORE 250. It was 1972 and the 250 was running out of Je·an, Nevada, which was then just slightly more than a wide spot in the road. There was Pop's Oasis, a small gas station and casino combined, a coffee shop that had great food as I recall and there was a small motel attached to the. casino, eight or ten rooms and they were always in demand as we raced there many times throughout the year. The course started at Jean, ran west to the California bor-der, west onto the dry lake, con-tinuing west into the hills for 15 miles and then turned north. After swinging back Ne-vada (did you notice we went into California?) the course turned east, over Wilson Pass towards the town of Arden, then twisted south towards Jean and the start/finish area. The course was 123 miles in length, the motorcycles (yes, there were motorcycles running with SNORE then), had ten hours to complete their two laps and the cars had 12 hours to complete their two laps. GERMAN AUTO There were only eight motor-cycles entered in '72 but just look at some of the names: Jack Johnson on a 250CZ, Scott Harden on a 125 Penton, Casey Folks and Torn Scales on their 125 Husky. Jack Johnson went on to win the Open Motorcycles class and Casey Folks took the 250cc category. Just for the record, the ,Folks/Scales combo -won the 250cc-class in 1970 and 1971. SNORE only ran motor-cycles from 1970 through 1972 and in '73 Scott Harden took the win. There were 143 cars entered, and the class structure was quite a bit different from that we have today. There were only five classes in contention: Four Wheel Drive, Sedan, 1200cc, Double Seat and Single Seat Buggy. Some of the names may mean nothing to the younger genera-tion but a lot of us older folks will remember these guys and gals as the virtual backbone of the off road racing world.

WHIPLASH SNOWFLAKE 150 Brown Dusts competition At snowflake Ron Brown took the overall win on the dusty course at the Whiplash Snowflake (ace, but it wasn't easy. Second place was only 26 seconds back. Brian Brown and Paul Shepard won the Whiplash Snowflake 150 in the trick 295 cid Ron Brown buggy on the Labor Day Saturday past. The soloing Brown defeated a star-studded field of Unlimited cars including John Herder, Cesar Fuentes, ·Rueben Wood, Jim Pierce, and even Gary Anderson. THE COURSE The mile high, Z8 mile loop was quite easy and smooth ... and , fast. Except in amongst the trees where it was tighter'n a calfs ass in fly time. The course was either along straight fence lines over grass covered prairie meadows or through a labyrinth of close packed junipers and pinyon pines. USFS water bar "launch_ers" were commonplace. But safe and fun. The sole deviation from this series -of terrains was the once bladed g, .wer line road rolling across serious, 100 foot high, cross ridge lines. ~ · "This will be the driest race in my 14 years running races up here," is what Jay McKinley said, Jay is,. the "Lash" in Whiplash. Jackie McK. is "The Whip." Luckily, the six laps did not deteriorate the course, structure- · wise, to any degree. No big ledges developed, no silt beds, and all but one of the water bars stayed safe and sure. OK, few rocks came up. But those BFGs Rototilled the dirt removed all traces of moisture. It was extremely dusty, with very little breeze, and became more so than less. Many class races were simply follow-the-leader. Or bump-the-leader. Only the bold could, or would, reach inside the dust plume ahead to make contact. Those that did ... won: Eric Fisher and Scotty Brown's :"1600" and Mark Beeler's hay ha.ulin', ass haulin', '56 FoMoCo. · THE RACE It was a race of attrition and a race against the elements. And against technology. Iucson John Herder ran the fast lap of the event then squandered it, Reuben Wood ran his new six cylinder Subaru motor, fought dust all day, finished a very close second overall. unintentionally of course, wh.en his Electromotive ignition system suffered a literal melt-down but one mile into his second lap. "There were holes burned into the bottom of the modules," reported Shannon Schutz. They had no spares for the usually reliable components. Jim Pierce's V6 pre-runner also had ignition problems ... reaching a few miles further than Herder but still only completing one full lap. · Reuben Wood's Subaru powered car was unable to pierce the dust curtain that Brian Brown tossed up, so the Ron Brown two seat Class 1 took the Overall. Wood was second by seconds ... 26 of those little suckers ... and Cesar Fuentes was third by less than a slim half minutes. The "Pro Ten" race was similar in construct: determined by dirt. Michael Sulgar had a back start, never led, but still beat Randy Miller by three seconds. Ron J;>alke and Steve Vesterdahl were third by 26. Miller actually finished first but back-starting Sulgar won on the dock. The Eric Fisher/Scott Brown "1600" took the Restricted. Pro Buggy win over Kurt Brewer while Juarez racer Enrique Bujanda won Pro 5. Mark Beeler beat down the competition to win Pro 8, as noted. PRO 1: 8 Entries - 5 Class Finishers After trailing Jim Pierce, until his untimely demise, the Brown/ Shepard car charged onward even though "Rueben pushed us all day." Brian Brown had tossed ·the power steering belt on the second lap then had to deal with a seeping oil cooler line question. On their only pit stop, Brown's crew tossed in a couple of quarts, flipped the belt back on, wiped their noses but they _did not even lose a position. The big, loµd colored car runs the ex-Paul Nolte 4.9 liter Pontiac, which is fed by a big old Holley, powering down through a Jeff Fields automatic transaxle. This is one trick car. Will A-arms be too far away? "We had a lot of trouble getting by the Sullivan/ Spooner '8'," Brian explained. "We had two good laps then a 'bad' one," referring to the dusty conditions. After the race they spent but two nights prepping the car for the next weekend's SCORE Primm 300. Their transmission called it quits in the Nevada cross chop.

Jack Farmer ran four evenly paced laps to take the win in the Sportsman 10 division. 380 pounds ... plus the radiator and piping. James Kirk of Kirk's Automctive prepared the stock junk yard engine. (Kirk is a member of the prestigious Bonneville "200 MPH Club," which is not for everyone.) The biggest job was remov'ing and cutting out all the unnecessary wires from the stock harness. "Miles of it!" Wayne Patrick is· the pit chief. Gentleman Jim Fowler is Buckeye's "Roving Ambassador of Good Will." Third overall racer Cesar Fuentes is an engine wrapped in a mystery. "Cd. Juarez." He too, was hurt by the dust. Bruce Greer in the "Riviera" Scat car was off pace all day • Fourth. The Ross and Carl-Mike ExtravaRX7ganza struggled. They were pushed around by Mike Doherty during a lengthy second lap. The Carl-Mike Perez Report ("I'm not involved in it anymore. But I help in the pits."): "Whitmoyer's brother Rex was driving the car during the whole race. He is from Georgia and runs a luggage distributorship. They have gotten some backing from a company named "Ricardo of Beverly Hills" to paint the car and trailer. He is a rookie with NASCAR driving experience." Dad Whitmoyer, Russ, rode with Rex and had to change a flat and help put a "5-1600" back over onto its wheels in the pine tree section. Rex liked his introduction to off road racing and "is just getting used to it," explained Ross. "It was a dusty bastard." Graying Gary Anderson had gone through the big Porsche car before the race. They had the car tom completely down · and rewired by Jim W eibel. The Finishers Michael Gale finished all four laps in his Sportsman Mini Chevrolet to take the class win. Randy Miller ran the whole six l'aps himself and left Gila Bender partner Bruce Mills sitting on the bench. This was a good plan, too, for a driver change would have sent them reeling backward in this hotly contested class. Miller reported that he had no troubles and never pitted. "I drove the first three laps all in dust. I could make up ground across the meadows when the wind was blowing then have to fall back when I got in the trees." He said that he caught Brad Leakey's struggling #999 and as he waited for Brad to get over to allow him to pass, Ron Dalke sneaked by. Don Jackson engine was freshened up and Gray Hendricks was on site for Northern Auto support. Witli the car now outfitted with a Chenowth A-arm setup and new Foddrill rear arms, Gary and Mark Crawford were ready to rock and roll. Well, they did not roll but they rocked the boat a bit. A rear brake line was torn off and fixed via the old ViseGrip method. But they then ra·n out of brakes and ran out of course and ran into trouble, hitting a big ol' stump. (Forestry Note: "They" have sawed off 8-inch trees and have left foot high stumps lurking in the weeds.) The bolts holding the steering ram onto the frame broke and direction control was also lost. T hey jimmied up a screwdriver and tie wrap interim solution that allowed some sort of steering authority, but the ram was now leaking and there was no spare to be had. So they were had, instead. Jim Pierce and Brad Chavez brought out the venerable, i.e., graying, two seat pre-run car for a little rest and relaxation but ended up spending a long time fiddling with the motor. It was, eventually, discovered that the crank ignition trigger had failed. JP spent the morning and. afternoon either in wilds or on the end of a rope. · Class Finishers: 1.

"It was fun for one lap. I raced with Randy (Miller) and (Ron) Dalke. Then my left rear caliper wore out the pucks. I had to quit. It wouldn't steer (while) on the brakes." Ed had been battling dragging brake pads on that side for some period of time. "I thought that we had that licked, but they were gone after a lap. It was a dusty mutha! I was in Ron's dust at that first fence .. . the one that the gate was not opened on! Ron got stopped at the gate so I went through the ribboned off cattle guard. I felt so bad about that ...

Travis was overtaken on the road, but still managed a nice third place finish only nine minutes back. Last in was Brooks at 1:51:54. Day 2 was more Bryan as he continued to dominate the field. He was able to take both day victories with a total time of 3:45:47. Brooks got some great track knowledge on Day 1 and finished Day 2 in second and second overall for the weekend. Travis was the last competitor to finish all required laps and completed the weekend with a great third. Sacks only went once and only finished three of the five laps and received a fourth.

Challenger corner By Joel Mohr RACE RESULTS!!! SCORE PRIMM 300: I didn't get a lap by lap account, but local Las Vegan Mark Bunderson took the win on a pretty nice but breezy day at State Line. Eric Fisher was sec-ond, Daniel Mora was third, Jesus Luna fourth, and the DNFers were Jimmy Messick, David Vieira, and Jeff Haneline. If any-one is interested, I'm looking for a SCORE Class 9 reporter for next season. I can't make it to all of the races, and I don't go to Mexico anymore. You don't have to go nuts trying to dig up all of the dirt, just who did what, and maybe find out who broke what, and notes would be fine. I can take what you get and make a story out of it. For what it's worth anyone that would like to report on ANY challenger race, feel free to call or e-mail me. I don't get a lot of space, but I'll squeeze in what I can. MDR BARSTOW 300: Nine 9s lined up for a delayed start be-cause some of the road crossing workers failed to show up at their appointed stations. Nevertheless, Paul got the bases covered, and after only about a half hour, it was business as usual. Six 46 mile loops was the flavor of the day, and we started seventh off of the line. By Pit B we were second on the road with McGuffin out front, but al~ady the gremlins had at-tacked the car and he was nurs-ing a slipping clutch. We got by him at about Mile 35, and at the end of Lap 1 we were leading. McGuffin was only a minute back, with the Walters brothers third (they had won the SNORE race BUMP STOPS HERE Stop the up-travel on your suspension with this advanced stop system.

Box 845 Yarnell, AZ 85362-0845 Dusty Times the week before, did a quick re-prep, and decided to join us). Robby Cockrell was fourth, Rob-ert Stapp {who resurrected Sandy Parker's La RANA Championship winning singe seater), was fifth, · Barry Nelson was sixth in the Dave Lawson entry. (Dave has since moved on to 1600dom and will probably never see his name in this column again.) Just kid-ding Dave, I wish you all of the luck in the world. Robert Riffle was seventh, Dan Owen was eighth, and unfortunately, Patty Wheeler in Sean DeFrank's ·car had lost the ring and pinion about 20 miles in. Gary Stevens was signed up, but didn't make th_e start. On Lap 2, we stretched our lead to about five minutes on the Walters who were now in second, . with Cockrell moving up to third, McGuffin dropping to fourth while nursing his clutch, Stapp was fifth, Riffle, Nelson, and then Owen. On Lap 3, I backed it off a notch, and that allowed the Walters to close the gap a bit, while Stapp moved into third, with Cockrell fourth, Riffle was · fifth, Mc Guffin slipped to sixth, and Nelson was seventh. Dan Owen ended up losing his motor and stuck in a canyon with no radio contact. What a bitch! On Lap 4, at FAIR Pit A, I stopped to do a rider change and get fuel. The stop took a little too long, and the Walters closed to within a minute of us. (I've got to get those belts fixed!) Stapp was turn-. ing some good laps and was only 10 minutes back in third. Riffle moved up to fourth, Nelson was fifth, and McGuffin was sixth. Cockrell dropped out when his co-driver pushed the clutch peddle too far and blew the cross shaft. On Lap 5 the fun really started when the· Walters passed me on a really nasty hill. Since I knew they weren't chasing points, my first instinct was to let them go. That lasted about a split sec-ond and the chase was on. About six or seven miles later we re-gained the lead but had our mir-rors full for the rest of the lap. Stapp closed the gap and was only about seven minutes back in third. Nelson was fourth, and McGuffin was fifth after pulling his motor to fix a blown input shaft seal. Riffle retired with a broken axle. On the final lap leav-ing the start/finish we only had about 20 seconds physically, which meant they were leading by · 40 seconds. At Pit A, the gap was only 10 seconds, and I decided to throw caution to the wind and pushed her to the limit. No mat-ter how -hard we pushed, they . were right there. With about seven miles left I climbed a hill and could see over my shoulder to see they wtre about a mile back. We did what we could, and skidded across the finish line hop-ing to hav~ stretched out enough lead to make up the time split. As I pulled into post race tech, Rob Walters stopped me and said that that had gotten a flat with five miles to go. OOOOHHHH MAAAAANNNNNN ! ! ! They got it fixed though, and finished about 10 minutes later in second. Stapp came around third, about 12 minutes later, a very nice showing for his first time out. Barry Nelson soloed, changing passengers twice, and finished fourth. McGuffin was the last 9 finisher, but that kept him within points striking distance going into November 1999 the last race. WOW, four in a row. I think for the first time in my life I'm completely speechless. But I do need to thank everyone for all of the help over the years, and especially this year. SUSPEN-SIONS UNL., SANDRAILS UNL., RD SPRING, FOX, WEBCAM, PRP, McKenzies, and of course, MOHR PERFOR-MANCE. Thanks to my wife Di-ane, MOM and DAD, Tim Nichols (first half rider), Robert Otwell (second half rider), and Chaser Dude Deluxe, Harold Curry. Also Chuck Abella, for handling Pit A. RUMOR MILL: I've gotten quite a few calls from people building or buying 9s, and if ev-eryone shows up at MDR like they say, we could have up to 20 cars next year!! Also Paul Duffy says that the entry fee will most likely stay where it's at. He also said he couldn't make any promises, it depends on what everyone charges him for services. Doug Ingram is putting a car together, Robert Riffle's single seat JIM CO is for sale, and if it sells, he'll be moving to 1600. As I mentioned before, Dave Lawson traded his 9 for a 1600, and the new owner Barry Nelson hopes to nm a full season next year. Sean Defrank bought a new chassis, so Patty and "The Animal" Durrell Wheeler will be campaigning his old Chen-owth. McGuffin also said he'll be moving to 1600, so _his Mirage single seater is for sale, a_nd Chuck Abella and Robert Otwell will be running Jimmy Messick's old car at MDR. The Walters tell me they are going to run MDR and SNORE, a feat that Joel Stanca-vich accompiished in ;92 with LaRana and SCORE winning championships in both series. Good Luck Guys!!! Once again, if you have any questions or com-. men ts, call me at (7 60) 94 7 -664 7, or e-mail me at MOHRPRF@JUNC.COM. SEE YOU AT THE RACES!!! It was Halloween, 1998 and these two beauties would make even a real witch shudder. Danny Anderson and Rob MacCachren were obviously enjoying them-selves at the party and we hope they have as good a time this year. NewWahzoo Well, Checker buds it seems as though that skirt wearing -ass kissing wanna-be Wahzoo must have finally ran out of butts to kiss. Sorry folks, but this Wahzoo hasn't found a butt worth kissing - so if you members, wanna-be members and eve droppers don't like this new Wahzoo's point of view -well then you can kiss my ass. Unless someone else wants the honor or the original W ah zoo comes back you could be stuck with me for a while. Primm 300 The club had eight entries who trekked to Stateline, Ne-vada to try and beat the silt beds and rocks for their share of Score's money. Some of this Wahzoo's info is a little shaky, · so if some of the facts aren't 100% then tuff shit -these are this Wahzoo's interpretation of the stories as I heard them. The club had seven pafd entries and one unpaid inactive (more on that late). We will start with first on the trailer to first in class. Justin LaCore was ru-mored to have one of the most exotic looking and state of the art Jimcos ever built. Although as luck would have it, Justin's car saw more miles on a trailer and tow strap than it did of the desert. Sometime on Friday, while Justin was at contin-gency, Randy La Core decided to take the new car for a little "Hot Lap." About the time the car's speed exceeded Randy's age and possibly his present driving ability, he lost solid contact with Mother Earth. No one is really sure if Randy was testing Jimco's new crumple zones or was trying to take soil samples with the car's roof. Once the car stopped rolling and now missing a few neces-sary parts like wheels. It was time to find Justin and tell him the bad news and recruit him to help load what was left of his new car and get it back to the casino. Needless to say, Justin's race was done on Friday. Tom Koch was the first of six paid club entries to get the green flag. The Ridgecrest Rocket started with typical Tom Koch style -it seems as though Tom put on his race face but forgot to put on his race glasses. Hey Tom, maybe it's about time to get some prescription glasses instead of those reading glasses from the 99cent basket at W alMart. Tom was reportedly seen and rescued somewhere around Mile Marker 9. Al-though that wasn\ the end of Tom's day -he made it around one full lap and then lost his motor. Ty Godde got the green flag on Saturday morning but didn't get very far. I was unable to get any real info on Ty but heard he tore up the rear sus-pension somewhere on the first lap. Dan Martin was another club DNF. Dan gave it all he had to get back to back wins for the club. But as luck would have it, Dan's day would be cut· short. Somewhere on the first lap Dan traded paint with a pre-runner on the course. It seems Dan tried to drive his car through the side of this, bone head's car. During the incident Dan's motor or trans tried to drive itself through Dan's fuel cell. Unfortunately Dan was on the trailer shortly afterward due to the loss of some impor-tant trans parts like gears. Brian and Scott Steele did ev-erything they could to get to the checkered flag but the race beat this team also. After nu-merous stops to the pits for re-pairs on rocker assy and ex-haust they eventually had to call it a day. Walter Prince, the Candy Cane Crusader was only able to muster up a second place. Walter's d ay was not without its fair share of prob-lems. During Walter's driver change our new member Stuart Bradley jumped to help (or so he thought) Walter's co-driver out of the car. After swiftly helping with the belts he went for the pumper hose and. radio wire. After yanking on that stubborn radio wire Stuart re-alized the error of his ways. It seems that somehow the wire Continued on page 44 Page 43

Page 44

had gotten itself wrapped around the co-driver's neck. Once this small problem was solved and Walter's co-driver regained consciousness, the driver change was completed · and the car was topped off and sent on its way. As if that wasn't bad enough, Walter's car was hit by a freak tornado and sent into a barrel roll -well, at least that's what the report is, because rumor has it Walter's car has never gone fast enough to roll on its own. Walter's new sleek looking car, shod of its candy canes and about 200 pounds, got a fine second to Sportsman class. George Seeley was the club's only first in class for the club at this race. Except for losing a brake line and having to have it pinched off. George pushed on to grasp the top podium spot. Congratulations George. Rumor has it that George has placed first in all the Primm races run. Now George, if you could only pay your pit fees on time this Wahzoo would really be impressed. Tony Tellier was signed up as a co-driver of a non-checker car -our one un-paid driver. Tony's non-checker ride broke early and was trailered back to the main pit which happened to be next to Checkers main. Tony, being friendly as usual decided to wander over to Checkers main and visit with his buds. Upon entering the main pit Tony was interrogated by Rev Roy re-garding his absence of pit fees in a Checker race. Tony ques-tioned having to pay pit fees since it wasn't his car and he wasn't asking for club support, but would discuss the situation with his council on having to pay fees. Rev Roy, being the good Vice President-that he is, opened "his briefcase and brought forth a copy of the by-laws to show Tony the error of his ways. After a quick look at the bylaws arid quick meeting with ex-President Biliborn, it was found that Tony was right, it wasn't his car so he Once Rev Roy was able to ' get that dirty old foot out of his mouth GOT SHOCKS?

I guess all you deadbeat members with little or no points must be getting together to save the day, but I highly doubt it. Unless you lazy bas-tards want the club to be a part of the super pits, you need to get your asses in gear and sign up for a pit. Membership par-ticipation has' been so bad lately we couldn't even cover all the pits at the Primm race, not to mention it's a rare occa-sion to get more than 15 mem-bers at a meeting. Maybe you members who are short on points want to get your asses thrown out of the club so you can join one of those pit for hire clubs. If that is the case, don't let the proverbial door hit you in the ass on the way out. Well buds, love me or hate me, but that's this month's Wahzoo column.

(Bill Roberson Sr., August 1999.) C.O.R.E. PIT REPORT By Sandy Parker MDR BARSTOW 300 CORE had only four teams run the MDR event, apparently the rest of the cars are already gearing up and saving the equipment for next year. Both Malcolm Bryce and Darin McOuffin are in contention for point series so they will both finish the season with M9R. With thee major races on the same day, most of the CORE teams decided to race locally. RACE REPORTS Team Bryce/McCool (Class 1-1600) The most impressive run of any CORE T earn was the team of Malcolm Bryce and Billy McCool. Malcolm started the race and was the first 1600 offthe line and held it most the day. The only car that passed him was "that girl", but as Malcolln explained, "I passed her back". Malcolm drove the first half of the race having no problems other than getting lost due to the poor course marking (his words not mine!). Starting the forth lap, Malcolm gave the car to Billy McCool in CODE Main Pit. The only problems Billy had was when all three of the pillows squirted out of the car and he couldn't reach the peddles. Mr. McCool flew the car the next three laps and fin-ished the car in the numbero uno position in class and fifth overall. CONGRATULA-TIONS GUYS! ! Team Stapp/Craig (Class 9) Rob Stapp purchased my old Chenow-1000 Challenger and teamed up with Todd Craig. November 1999 Rob was my high school buddy and one of my biggest racing nemesis in the 70's as we both raced our white 1200cc Class 11 cars. Todd is the youngest of the racing C: raigs out of Barstow. I knew from the start that they were going to be a team to contend with, as soon as they loose the "first race back" jitters. Rob started the race and was having fun, pass-ing cars and making up some time. On the second lap a gut-less Class 8 driver, slammed · him off the course damaging the car and tweaking Rob's neck in the process., refer to my continued comments at the end of the report. In pain, Rob radioed in and said he was get-ting out of the car immediately. To make matters worse, Rob blew a front tire so he had to fight the car back to CORE Main. With a tire change and fuel stop, Todd took over and clicked off three very fast laps. The only incident slowing Todd was a blown shock which was changed in less than two minutes at Main Pit. After a few hours while Todd was driv-ing, Rob was feeling better !ind jumped back into the car to fin-ish the last lap. The guys fin-ished third in class out of the ten car field, not too shabby for their first race back in many many yeaxs.· Team Malloy (Class 1600) This was the first race for Mike Malloy's the brand spank-ing new Lothringer single seat 1600. This car is way too clean to thrash in the desert. A few weeks prior to this race Mike had a photo shoot with Hot VW's, so look for it in a few months. Being the preparation perfectionist, Mike was sure to make the car as quick as it is good looking, and he proved it this race. Mike Soloed the race and kept it towards the front of the pack all day. Mike had closed the gap between himself and the Bryce/McCool car where he was ahead on cor-rected time. Approaching Stottard Wells road, Mike blew a rear tire which was quickly changed at the CORE Baker pit. About mid race Mike no-ticed an exhaust-•noise so he called it in and got CORE Main ready for action. CORE Main welded the broken brand new exha~st back together so Mike was back in contention. Mike ended up in forth place in class, not bad for the first race on a new car. Team Mc Guffin/Jeffry/ Dittfield (Class 9) Every once and a while, you have one of those races you would like to forget. This has been that year for Darin McGuffin. Darin started the race with an injured elbow that he smacked into the frame rail last race. He was only able to complete a single lap wanting to get out due to the pain. Af-ter the first lap, Darin com-plained about the clutch slip-ping and asked for an adjust-ment. The pit crew noticed that the trans seal was leaking into the clutch housing and oil was getting on the clutch disk. They decided to make a driver change and have Brian Jeffery make a lap and they would get ready to pull the motor and change the seal. Half way arouna the course they pulled into CORE Baker Pit and had the tranny topped offwith gear oil. They pulled in at the end of lap 2 and yanked the motor and changed the bad seal in about 20 minutes. Brian got back in the car and drove fif-teen miles when a rear torsion bar failed. He pulled into CORE Baker where they in-stalled a spare torsion bar. Brian completed the forth lap but broke the other torsion bar just before the Main pits. Darin quietly asked if anybody had another torsi6n bar, I looked. thru my old challenger parts and found another spare bar. I'm not quite sure if Darin ap-preciated this or not since the tired crew has to rip the back of the car off and install the spare torsion bar. Tom Ditffileld.had the driving hon-ors the last two laps and did it with no problems. I did hear the rumor that Tom stated that this is his "LAST' race in a Class 9 car, yea rights Darin is in a fight for the Class 9 points so he was determined to fin-ished the race, an'd that he did, finishing fifth in class and man-aging to salvage some points. CORE PIT SUPPORT CORE MAIN (Sidewinder/ Outlet Center road) Kenny Lane was the pit cap-tain who had Mike DuBois, Don and Hilly Smith, .the , McGuffiln and Parker crews assisting hirrt in the running of CORE Main. CORE Main per-formed driver changes and fuel stops for the Bryce, McGuffin, and Stapp cars. A front tire and rear shock were replaced on the Stapp Challenger. An en-gine pull and seal and clutch disk replacement, torsion bar installation were done on the McGuffin car. Welding was done to the exhaust of the Mal-loy car and simultaneously changing of a near flat wopped front centerline. . CORE PITABLE (Hwy 257) The Able pit was manned by Tom Malloy, Kris Bloomdahl, Kris Kehl, Enrique Borja, Mike Lewis, Carlos Perez, Paul Dumas, Eric Telemundo, and Jason Edwards. It's a good thing they brought all the people, since the only thing they did was to give Mike Malloy a splash of fuel and enjoy the beautiful weather and great racing. CORE PIT BAKER (Stottard Wells Rd) The Baker pit kept busy changing a tire for Mike Mal-loy, R&R a torsion bar and add-ing tranny gear oil to the McOuffim car. The Baker pit was run by Brad Inch, Jim Wagner, Dave Woulfe, Lex and Shashum W eh, and Gary and Cara Hall. CORE PIT C}IARLEY (Hodge Rd) Bob Depew, Aaron Snow and the man known only as Tim ran the Charley Pit. The only work the guys did was to non-CORE cars. BITD VEGAS TO RENO The CORE Protruck Team of McGillivray and Ridings at-tempted to make the trek be-tween Las Vegas to Reno in the Best in The Desert race. I say attempted since they had ma-jor mechanical problems off the Dusty Times

start. Tom Ridings and Dean Cognito started the event and soon experienced transmission fluid retention problems (a big old honkin leak). They used all their spare fluid and borrowed some from competitors and hobbled the car to the first pit where a spare transmission awaited them. Because of the BID broken vehicle recovery rules, it took many hours to get the truck where it could be ser-viced. Only a few miles into the race and already many hours down, they decided not to con-tinue and headed home. The team is already looking forward to next year as the 2000 Protruck racing s.chedule has them racing in some very inter-esting venues. 1999 BONEHEAD AWARD This years "BONEHEAD" award goes to the driver of the 802 Class 8 truck at the Octo-ber MDR race. At the last race this incredibly brave man drove into the back of one of our CORE cars, damaging the car and injuring the driver. The course was 4 trails wide and no horn was used, sounds like an ego problem to me .. Contact me at the number/e-mail ad-dress listed below and I will let you know where to send the check for the damages along with your letter of apology. This driver obviously likes the MDR series where he can run a few fast laps and take out as many slower cars as he can. Lay offneffing the real racers Mr. Trophy-Truck-Wanna-Be and go to SCORE where you can be target practice for the Class lO's on up. No, he would rather run where there are many cars in slower classes where he can drive thru them. I would sug-gest that the driver of this truck spend less money on paint and chrome and invest heavily in driving lessons a,11d p~ychologi-cal sessions to learn how to drive and get over youf "big boy" cqmplex. We don't need this L.A. bastard, road rage, overly aggressive bullshit in the desert, rather keep it on the freeways where your competi-tor carry guns. Searching for a professional family oriented pit support club? CORE is always happy to extend it's family and support.

For more information, join us at the meeting or call me at (818) 77 2-77 58 or e-mail me a t CRS Report By Sue Robinson Things are pretty quiet this month, September, in the CRS. No rally crosses or stage rallies. Nancy Peterson has retired as Membership Chairman and Treasurer and Tony Chavez has stepped up to take the po-sition.Tony has been an active competitor and organizer with the CRS and is a great sup-porter of the club. His wife, Norma, and daughter, Sondra, are regulars at the rallies as Dusty Times well. Be sure to stop by and say "Hi" to Tony and family at the next event you attend. Tom Bier tied the knot with the companion, Ahava Brooke on September 18th. Congratu-lations! Tom is a regular in the CRS two wheel drive open class -most recently in his yellow Saab. Actually the Saab made it into their wedding invitation as one of the illustrations. Now that is an understanding fiance. We hope to see the happy couple at a rally soon. The Treeline Rally is gear-ing up for November 13th in Monrovia, CA. Two new stages are being added this year. They are a nice addition to some re-ally great tight twisty roads that have been run in years past. The Treeline has a website that can be accessed through the CRS webpage. Check it out. The Laughlin International Rally is shaping up. Roger and Ray have added more roads on the Huvapai Indian reserva-tion. As you recall we ran those in the snow last year. Maybe this year we can see what we were racing on. The rallyists will get to race down to the Colorado River as well. They will run their Superstage again which was a big hit last year. Two courses side by side and two cars running against the clock and each other at the same time. The matchups were lots of fun. Last year Frank Sprongl showed everyone how to get around the slalom course! There is a pre-runner class for all of you off roaders who want to try out rallying. Be careful, you may get hooked. We did I Check out their webpage for more information and an entry form. Scott Bottomly and Tom Grossman of the Las Vegas SCCA region are putting to-gether a Super Rally weekend in March of 2000. They have scouted out a road to run a rally sprint on and then will run a rally course on a dry lake the next day. This will be a good warm-up for rallying later in the season. Dennis Sheean is planning a rally sprint/rally cross weekend in Holtville, CA the middle of February 2000. This was a fun event last year. We shared the airfield with the RAF para-troopers and got a free air show all weekend. Plan to bring your tiki torches and rally videos and we can swap rally stories on Saturday night. Ray Hocker will put on an-other rally school the beginning of the year 2000. At least one more school is planned for next year and possibly an advanced school mid season to improve driving skills and add to previ-ous information presented. A trade show in conjunction with this school is also in the plan-ning. Don't forget membership re-newal time is drawing near. Re-new now and the membership is good through December 2000. Full membership in-cludes a subscription to Dusty Times! Contact our new Mem-bership Chairman and Trea-surer Tony Chavez or pick up a membership form off the CRS w e b p a g e <>. See you at the start line! F.A.I.R. News By Joy Bancroft FAIR'S ANNUAL NOS-TALGIA DINNER AND AWARDS BANQUET WAS ANOTHER HUGE SUCCESS! If you couldn't make the dinner you simply missed the best dinner ever. 159 dinners were served ... I think that broke our record in attendees. The chicken fajitas were delicious including the mouth watering cheesecake for dessert. Old and new members enjoyed the bar available in the banquet room with a slide show and videos going in the background. Af-ter all, what's more important than enjoying a few drinks with friends and talking over all the old race stories. As dinner got underway, awards were presented to some of our "special" mem-bers. Harry Dunne received a "STOP" sign for the rear of his car. Mitch Griffin, who was not present, received a toilet seat attachment for his race car seat. Bill Markel re-ceived a lunch box (I think it was Looney Tunes), for his many stops for sandwiches when he is racing. And fi-nally, Tom Mangione re-ceived an alarm clock. As the old saying goes, "you just had to be there!" Then we got down to the serious awards. FAIR spend time at the meet-ings before the dinner nomi-nating for the first time mem-bers that are long overdue with outstanding contribu-tions. The categories were: RACE OF THE YEAR, PIT SUPPORT PERSON OF THE YEAR, and FAIR PERSON OF THE YEAR. The Board submitted nominations for the "PRESIDENT'S AWARD," and the final de-cision was then made by our President. This award was to go to an individual, who stands out for his or her con-tributions to the entire off road industry. THE WINNERS ARE: RACER OF THE YEAR: Joel Mohr. PIT SUPPORT PERSON: Mike Shannon. FAIR PERSON OF THE YEAR: Bill Markel. PRESIDENT'S AW ARD: Art Savedra. All of the above are so de-serving of their awards ... Joel Mohr who has raced his heart out this year to win his first race and to continue to win while he supports all the races with FAIR providing good pit support whether he is racing or not.

He spends 50% of his life volunteering for FAIR, or-dering equipment, soliciting new members and, of course, his marketing abilities to help support FAIR when we have promotions and our Annual dinner. And last, but not least, Art Savedra came quickly to FAIR's mind be-cause of strong will to stay so strongly involved in off road.

DUSTY PEOPLE The Rodriguez Family By Judy Smith You finally get to the fin-ish line, happy but weary, and as yo·u coast up to the crowded post-race area some-one waves a flag, telling you to stop. A small horde of people surrounds your car, and someone is tugging at your left arm, while another is digging into your stub can. You get a pat on the shoul-der, a big smile, and a couple of finisher pins. You wonder vaguely who these friendly and industrious people are. A good portion of them be-long to the Rodriguez family. And this is a story that began over 20 years ago with one of our long time Mexican Na-tional racers. Jesus Luna and Javier Tiznado were racing a Class 11 car in 197 8, and they needed pit help for the Baja' 500. So Jesus called on his cousin, Bill Rodriguez, to come down and work. Bill, who, though born in San Di-ego, was also a Mexican Na-tional, then lived in Tijuana. His dad had a wrought iron furniture factory and was one of the sponsors of Luna and Tiznado's car. While Bill was growing up he'd lived in both Los Ange-les and San Francisco, and he'd picked up a fondness for cars and racing. He was a street racer, and-a drag racer, who lived to get his hands dirty. He'd always built his own motors. But he hadn't tried off road racing up to this time. The '78 500 was a good one for the Luna/Tiznado team: they won the class and infected Bill Rodriguez with the off road bug. When the Baja 1000 rolled around he was in the passenger seat, riding with Jesus. And the fol-lowing year he began driving, and has been teaming with his cousin ever since. They won the SCORE Class 11 champi-onship three times over the years, making history by be-ing the first Mexican Na-tional team to become Class Champions. They believe they still hold the record for the Class 11 time from-Ense-nad a to La Paz, at 26:29:05:90, recorded in 1982. To regress a bit, we need to go back to San Diego. While still in his late teens he met his future wife, Teresa (Terri), who also lived in San Diego. A mutual friend intro-duced them in '72, and, still in their teens they married in 1973. Terri's dad was a fan of the Baja races, but she had never traveled south with him to watch. Five years later, when Bill went to help that first time, Terri's brother went along to help also. And eventually Terri's dad and her brothers became part of Bill's pit and chase crew, going to . the races for many years to help. In the meantime Bill bought a curio shop in 1974 and he and Terri were im-mersed in running their busi-Dusty Times ness and family along with the racing. In August of 1977 the family moved to Tijuana, and now Terri found herself seri-ously practicing her Spanish. She'd never studied the lan-guage in school, but had picked up a fair amount from her many Spanish speaking friends over the years. Now, because she wanted to com-municate with Bill's family, she had to work at it, and she quickly became fluent, though she says that to this day she speaks her Spanish with an "accent." After the 1982 season, Bill and Jesus moved into Class 5-1600, and then up into 1/2-1600 for a while, and back to 5-1600s. They helped the leg-endary Mike Leon, from Mike's Sky Ranch, when he was racing his Isuzu, and even paired up to race the little truck in a 1000. Then in · about 1991 they began to race in Class 9 where they've been since. During the mid-80s, Leon had asked Bill for assistance in layi _; out and marking some of the SCORE courses. Even this became a family ef-fort and Terri remembers that at least once he took his mom along in his old VW pre-run-ner to help with the marking. From that time on he he°lpe-d with every Baja race, and af-ter Leon died in an auto ac-cident, he took on aP.. even larger share of the time con-suming course lay-out and marking effort. Nowadays Bill helps Sal Fish (SCORE's president) by interpreting, negotiating and finding new courses. He also works with the local ecology people, and with SCORE's lawyer, Oscar Ramos, in lay-ing out maps and arranging contracts. In the meantime, he'd be-come a father, and his daugh-ters, Tina (now 22) and Mary {now 15) were growing up as off road fans. In 1994 Tina had been graduated from high school but hadn't yet entered college. She had been helping with a myriad of chores al-ready, such as setting up ac-commodations for SCORE workers, arranging space for the radio room and as an in-terpreter, but now she volun-teered to help at the start line, run in those days with an iron hand by Roberta La Yelle and her husband, the late, be-loved "Charlie Tuna." From that time on Tina helped at every Mexican race. Then, at the Baja 1000 in 1995, which ran from Tijuana to La Paz, Roberta and Charlie an-nounced their imminent re-tirement. Sal, obviously about to be in need of an efficient start/finish line crew, asked Terri and Tina to become his new team. They took it on, bringing along a good friend of Tina's, named Tatum, who hasn't missed a race yet, and younger sister, Mary, to help as needed. Their first official event was the last Parker race, first event of the '97 sea-son, and they've been the start/finish crew at every SCORE event since. Bill hadn't exactly been standing around with his hands in his pockets in the meantime. He'd bought a fur-niture factory in 1992, while retaining the curio-store busi-ness. The factory, which manufactures high-end furni-ture, mostly for export to the United States, consumes -a lot of his time, and takes him up to the Los Angeles area as of-ten as three times a week. Terri says she occasionally goes along as a passenger just so he can drive in the car pool lanes to save a little time on the trip. As the furniture fac-tory grew, it became increas-ingly difficult to also run the cui'io• stores, so in '96 they sold it. Currently the Rodriguezes have 150 em-ployees at their plant, where they manufacture furniture of wrought iron, wood and alu-minum. In '97 Tina began dating Lobsam Yee, who also lived in Tijuana and whom she'd met over the course of her teen-age years. It was apparently coincidental that Yee and his brother, Elissandro (Eli), were also C°Jass 9 racers. By Fe.bru-ary of the following year they were '.'formally dating", and just after the Baja 500 this year they announced their en-gagement. The wedding was held on August 20th, so now the Rodriguez family has an-other race team in its midst. The Yee family is also in the furniture business, lo-cated in Rosarita, and Lob-sam works there. Eli has his own business. They're now racing in both Class 7, in a Ford Ranger, and in Class 1 in J imco. Eli and his co-driver, Perry McNeil, recently won a CORP race overall in the Class 1 car. Lobsam occa-sionally helps Bill by co-cl.riv-ing in the Class 9 car, most recently at the Primm 300, where they finished fourth af-ter some mechanical prob-lems. Bill, busy as he is with his business and several times a year jaunts through the wilds of Baja for SCORE, still works on his own car, building his own motors and doing much of the prep. Bill (who's also known as Memo, and/or Guillermo), and Jesus are run-ning second in the Class 9 points as they head into the final race of the season. Terri, Tina, Mary and Tatum are the ladies who start the day at dawn or ear-lier to see that the pre-race staging goes efficiently, with everyone getting to the green flag in the correct order, and on time. They also check arm-bands at the start and record who is actually in the car. They come back to the finish to direct traffic in the hectic post-race interview · November 1999 and contingency check area, check arm-bands again to record who did the final stretch of driving, and collect and count the check-point stubs for the races that use them. They are the nice people who give finishing drivers the coveted finisher-pirts, and they occasionally run for the medics when a sick or injured rider or driver shows up at the finish line. They also help non-bilingual media when they have ques-tions for the Mexican racers, and they direct racers through the finish line confu-sion to tech. Their team works' at the finish line until the last car comes in, which often means until the morn-ing of the next day. It wasn't easy to step into the job so admirably filled by the La Yelles for decades, but the Rodriguez family and their friends have developed the necessary skills and strengths. Their organiza~ tional talents have helped keep SCORE's pre-race labors moving smoothly, especially in Baja, and their race day ef-forts assure well-run and effi-cient start and finish lines Pony Express ... Dear Big Wahzoo I think you didn't get the whole story on the car awarded to Roland ·Berry by Snore. The car was not advertised as.turn key. It was adver-tised as a Bunderston 2-1600, Wiks Motor. vw Automotive Transaxel. B.F. Goodrich Tires, Loth-ringer Engineering Rear Arms. P.C.I. Radio. CNC, Fox Shocks. sway Away, Ump. Beard's super Seats. Howe Powersteering, Foderal Arms. K&N, KC. Steel Engineers. Imperial Iron. Discount Foreign car Parts. Nevada Off Road Buggy. McKenzies. T. cre-ations and Snore. These are the generous spon-sors and contributors that made it possible for Snore to present this car to Roland. Inciden-tally, Roland is a great guy and has been very understanding about the delay. Ah, the delay. Yes, we have to apologize to Roland for being late. Parts were late, people had other commit-ments, the usual gotcha's that get you when you're-working on a project this size. So, thanks to all these wonderful people and a great cham-pion, Snore. A club of off readers, were able to present $4,500.00 cash, all the Snore entry fees in 1999 paid and a $27,000.00 race car to our 1998 champion, who just happens to reside in California, but belongs to the family of off readers. The members of Snore are from nearly every state, and it was decided to go ahead and make the car turn key for Roland, as our way of apologizing for being late. We think we did the right thing and, remember, the best way to make a club better is to get involved.
