OLD FRIEND - Dear old friend Bernice Sanders is back with emap usa. Her e-mail address is sandersb@emapusa. OWNERSHIP CHANGE - Special Events has purchased the National Mud Racing Organization and formed a new corporation to manage the straight line mud racing organization. For more info contact Special Events, 317-236-6522. CORR EXPANDING - CORR announced that it is expanding it's race venue for 2002. The Unadilla Valley Sports Center will host a CORR race May 24-26, 2002. The track is located in central New York State, 30 miles south of Utica and has long been the host of the AMA National Motocross Championships. SCCA UPDATE -The Sports Car Club of America announced in March that Kurt Spitzner has been promoted to Director of Rally. "Kurt's passion, commitment and knowledge of Rally will enable the SCCA to grow Rally into one of the most exciting, extreme motorsports in the country" said Steve Johnson, SCCA President and CEO. We wish Kun the best in his new position. UNTIMELY DEATH - We were saddened to hear of the accidental death of Bob Wolleck, a man who has won races at Le Mans and Daytona over the years. The 57 year old racer was struck from behind while riding his bicycle on Highway 98 near Sebring Raceway in Florida. Bob drove mostly in Porsches and he won twice at Lemans, four overall wins at the Daytona 24 hour races and a couple of victories-at Sebring. The racing world has lost a great competitor and a great person. • NASCAR AND TELEVISION - Televi~ion ratings for NASCAR have increased 63% over last year, quite a rise in viewership. I know I fully enjoy watching the round-d-rounds and I'm glad to see that I'm far from alone. CHEROKEE TRAILS PRORALLY -The SCCA put on its first international rally in 13 years and it was won by the team of Richard Tuthill and John Bennie, from England and Scotland respectively, driving a 1997 Mitsubishi EYO IV. The rally was run in the southeast corner of Tennessee and it was a rough one, only 23 of the 61 ProRally entries were running at the end. Most of the dnt's were high centered on berms or stuck in ditches of the logging roads and, weather was not a factor. This international rally is a start for SCCA co bid on a future round of the World Rally Championship. This rally consisted of more than 800 miles in the route book and over 180 miles of special stages. John Buffum was second overall, Laughlin O'Sullivan took the coveted PGT Class, Andrew Havas was the Group 5 winner and Jeff Field took the Production win. Randy Bailey was the Group 2 winner at the heavily attended rally. Next on the schedule is the Oregon Trail Rally, Tillamook, Oregon is the place and the beat goes on. DUN FOR THE WALL XIll - Once again our own circulation manager, Yance ~cott will join thousands of other armed forces veterans who will ride their motorcycles from Ontario, California to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, "The Wall" in Washington, D.C. Bikers from all over the nation meet at the Pentagon on May 27,h, Memorial Day weekend and parade to the l0emorial. Last year over 300,000 bikers participated in the event. The west coast riders will take 11 days to arrive at their destination with 10 overnight stops scheduied as they cruise across the country. The ride is to promote awareness and support for those American prisoners of war and those missing in action, (POW/MIA) unaccounted from all wars. Dusty Times supports this effort and we hope you will lend your support als·o. For more information check the Run For The Wall Website · L. AS VEGAS SAND & OFF ROAD SHOW -The show is being held at the Cashman Center in Las Vegas, 850 North Las Vegas Blvd. The show will feature hundreds of displays of manufacturers and retailers showing the latest in parts and equipment for off road and street trucks, race cars, buggies, sand and otherwise, motorcycles and ATV's. June 16-17,-2001 are the dates and it sho uld be well worth going to. The show is open from 10am to 5pm both days and admission is just $8. So, reserve the weekend and come see all there is to see. See the full page ad in this issue of Dusty Times. FACT OR FICTION - We .don't usually tell tales out of school and we hardly ever repeat a rumor in print, but this one is pretty strong so we have co alert you to the possibility that there will be yet another race in Mexico. Running south of Ensenada, probably a fifty mile lap, four circuits thereof and it will probably come off in mid December. We have talked to some of the principals involved and they are working very hard to create this new venue. We'll keep you informed as we get more info in the months to come. DEMOGRAPHIC STUDY -We spent an awful lot of time and effort on the demographic study that appeared in last months issue of Dusty Times. Now it's your turn, please answer the questions, fold it up, put it in an envelope and send it to Dusty Times. We really need your help to compile these figures and sometime in the near future we'll aver~ge out the returns and print them for you to see. Thanks in advance for your help, and please don't let us down. OLD FRIENDS Il-Just received a nice note from Bob Lewis, an old friend. We used tci sit and swap off road racing stories for many hours up at his "ranch" in Acton. Ah, the good old days. Thanks for the nice note Bob, I'll see you soon. "l. ,{EXICAN FEES - Just a bit of a reminder from our own Judy Smith. For those of ! who are part of Contingency Row at the Baja races, be sure that you purchase your "Vendors License" and have it in your possession when you are hawking your wares. Without "It", you may be subject to the annoyance and time consuming chore of getting yourself to a local Mexican bank to purchase a one time permit for yourself and each of your assistants. This is what happened at San Felipe and it really was a nuisance to have to tend co this during a busy contingency day. If you have any questions regarding these work and sale permits we suggest you contact SCORE at 818-225-8402 for pro.per information. FACT OR FICTION II - Just for the record, there is already news on the soon to be announced new race in Baja. Had a few minutes talk with Casey Folks in beautiful downtown Pahrumph last weekend and Casey informed that the race will happen. Casey and Gerado Novello will join forces to put on a four lap, 200 mile event. The race will start at the Estero Beach Hotel and run four laps, each lap finishing at the Estero Beach. There will be much thought and effort put into the event and it will take place in December, 2002. We'll keep you informed of what's going on as it-surfaces, look for the information here in Trail Notes. i,,:-rE OLD GOAT - I know lots of you folks out there remember Orris Johnson, 'The J. Old Goat". Orris and his racecar and his sons and lots of other folks, including Jean Calvin were connected to the Old Goat race car in one way or another and many a soul Page & August 10-12, 2001 T ecate, Baja.

TECATE SCORE SAN FELIPE 250 Herbsts Take overall In Close Battle By Judy Smith Photos: Trackside Photo Chris Harrold had _his Honda powered Jimco flying low as he charged to the front of the Class 1 O pack for the victory. Tim and.Ed Herbst teamed in their Ford powered Trophy Truck to take the overall win at the March San Felipe 250, but it was a hard won victory, with a mar-gin of only one minute. The total overall went to the motorcycle team of Steve Henge-veld and Jonah Street who com-pleted the 208 miles in a time of 3:33:22 on a Honda. Once again, San Felipe wel-comed the off roaders with mild weather and gentle breezes, a nice change from the grey skies and near-continuous rain some had been living with for weeks. The Fri<lay cunLingency uisplays an<l tech inspection were held on the Malecon, convenient to local businesses and restaurants and just a sidewalk's width off the beach. The course, exactly i:he same as last year, had lost some_ of it sandy cushioning in some areas, exposing a lot of rocks, and the 208 total miles included some _ unpleasantly rough stuff in the fi-nal 20 or 30 miles. On the other hand, thanks to the winter storms, some of the loveliest wild-flower. displays were in that area. The racing was great. The bikes and quads started at about 6:30 a.m., and allowing a gap of an hour between the last quad to leave and the first trophy truck, the four wheeled vehicles took off at 8 a.m., leaving the start line one at a tirrie, spaced 30 seconds apart. The limited classes were happy for the 30 second interval which at some events is reduced to 15 seconds, because the first 12 miles of the course were known to be very dusty. A nice breeze, stiff enough to move the dust off course started up just as the green flag flew and did help some, but visibility was a bit of a problem early on. First off the line, the Trophy Trucks numbered only six this Lime, an<l were quickly down to five when James Baldwin went out to pass a quad or bike and hit something big and solid. Maybe a stump. The rear end was torn right out·of his Ford and it went over and over. It was the end of Baldwin's weekend. The others carried on in a tight clump, and when they reached Check 1 at roughly Mile 49, Brian Collins and his Chevy, Dave Ashley in the Ford and Mark Post in an-other Ford were within a ·half minute of one another, while the Herbsts were a minute or two off the pace in fourth. By the time they got to Check 2, 82 miles into the race Ashley had the lead, but was only a minute up on Collins, who was two minutes in front of the Herbsts nd Post was another two minutes back in fourth. Gary_ Vosburg, in his Protruck turned - Trophy Truck (bigger brakes, big-ger fuel cell and bigger motor tha·n allowed in Protruck) was about· two minutes behind them. His truck is still very close to a Protruck ''in case we ever want to go back," he said. When they arrived at the Sul-fur Mine, at the beginning of Azufre Wash, and 94 miles along the way, Ashley, and co-driver, Dan Smith, still led, followed by Collins and then the Herbsts. Post and .co-driver Jerry Whelchel were another six minutes back in fourth. But by Check 3 (Mile 122) they had lost a top of a shock can (it blew right through the hood) and Whelchel had gone to can-nibalize parts while navigator Barry Beacham drove the injured truck down Matomi Wash (the fulfillment of an old dream). The Herbsts had two flats, one early in the day and one in Matomi, and both times had trouble with their jacks sinking into the sand. But then they made up time. At the "secret check" designated as Check "A", about 50 minutes after Check 3, they were tied with Collins for the lead, and now Smith, who got in Tim and Ed Herbst got their third-in-a-row win at San Felipe in the Ford Trophy Truck, beating Class 1 by a minute. at Mile 97 had fallen to third af-When they got to the first check, ter a major tire problem.

Sohren got to the point where the course makes a right tum onto the trail about 200 yards before the finish and his motor made a horrible noise. When he got to the payement he turned it off and coasted the last few yards across the finish line (it's downhill) to get the win. Once he got home he saw a big hole in the top of the case. He said he could put his "whole hand in from the top." The timing was right. James and Kalicki had no problems beyond that belt and took second place. In third it was Seeley who had it right with the tire pressure, be-cause he had no flats, but the sandy washes were tough. Cua, who had broken a steering ram and lost 25 minutes while he got it welded uo. finished fourth. Ja-kobson and Sanderson, who said we "took our time, played it safe", finished fifth. Bujanda who drove the whole second half of the race with no power steering, was sixth. Class 7 was next to go. Six of them started, but Hector Sarabia couldn't make it to Check 1 in his Nissan, so they were down to five very early. It looked as if they might be down to three for a while. Mike Becker got to the first turn of the course and the weld that held the wishbone heim on his Toyota broke. He just turned around, came back into town and by serendipity drove right up to a welding shop. He had to wait while a chase crew had their trailer fixed, but all together it took very little time and he was going again, after paying the $30 fee. While his truck was being re-paired, in came Perry McNeil, in the same class, needing work on his Ford. He had to wait for Becker to get finished, but then he, too, was back out on the course. In the meantime, Craig Turner had his Ford well down the road. He was leading by eight minutes at Check 1 and it was Scott Sells, in a Toyota, in second place. Ernest Cervantes had his Ford Ranger in third, but he was down about an hour and a half after a lengthy repair on a broken spindle. Then it was McNeil and Becker. Turner was having no prob-lems and had a lead of 11 min-utes at the Sulfur Mine. It was still Sells in second place. Cervantes was third and McNeil ran fourth. But Becker was out of it. He broke a uni-ball down by the Percebu access road, about 87 miles into the race. He said his luck was good however, because he was Dusty Times

Turner had about 45 minutes on Sells by the time they got to Check B, thanks to the three flats Sells had. Cervantes held steady in third place, but then at about Mile 190, 18 miles before the fin-ish, he lost an engine. But (and this is what happens with most racers), he lost about eight or nine minutes fiddling around, wonder-ing what it could be, before he switched to the new ignition, and voila, everything worked. Turner went on to take the win, finishing 52 minutes to the good. He said it was a "great course, marked wonderfully." Sells had a front wheel bearing back off, and he felt it before the wheel took off into the desert, stopped for help at Los Mocos, and got things welded together again.

They had a leaky rear seal and had to stop to add fluid several times, But they were 11 minutes in front of Fresh. He'd lostthe bolt on his panhard bar, and tried substi-tuting a screwdriver to keep it in place. When the screwdriver fell out he used a seat bolt, and that worked. Davis was third, 16 min-utes later. He'd had a broken oil ·line, a broken rocker shaft and a bunch of down time. He got stuck three times. Macrae Glass (in the Stock Mini class) pulled him out once and a Mexican family got him unstuck another time.

Then it was a three-way tie between Al-berto Santos, Eric Deen and Curt Geer, all two minutes further back. They were almost all still running, as only Daniel Lopez failed to get to the first check.

WRC 34TH TAP RALLY OF PORTUGAL Portugal Belongs .To Tommi By Martin Holmes Photos: Maurice Selden Tommi Makinen and Risto Manninsenmaki took their Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution to the big win ir:, Portugal, his 100th rally and 22nd win. Tommi Makinen cel-ebrated his 100th World Championship Rally start with his 22nd outright win on the 2001 Portugal Rally, ce-menting his position at the head of the World Champion-ship, and enabling Mitsubishi to move further in front in the Manufacturers series. Carlos Sainz pushed him had in un-believably bad conditions,. Fog, rain, water, ruts, mud and rocks were the conse-quence of a terribly bad win-ter full of terribly bad weather. Four stages were abandoned altogether, many others wee cut short before all the competitors could pass. Mitsubishi also won the Group N category. Manfred Stohl led almost all the way but he relinquished his posi-tion to allow Marcos Ligato to score his maiden win in the category. Pasi Hagstrom dev-astated the Teams Cup cat-, egory, making fastest time on all but one stage, while Hyun-dai, on the debut appearance of their second generation Accent WRC finished with both cars in the points, the only team not to suffer retfre-ment along the way. The Portugal Rally was Round 3 of 14 in the 2001 World Rally Championship and Round 2 of six in the FIA Teams Cup. Regarded as the first round of the 200 l sea-son, it was held on gravel roads, ranging from rocky sec-tions in central Portugal to sandy sections further north. Very fierce _conditions d':1rin_g the winter together with al-most non-stop rain in recent weeks meant that many roads were badly damaged. It be-came a race against the ele-ments for the organizers, first to keep the roads open for ·re-connaissance and then to make them passable for the event itself. There was a new location for .rally headquar-ters but the route was essen-tially the same as before. The pressure was begin-ning to tell on Peugeot who had scored no manufacturers points on the first two events. They had a three car team with Rovanpera as the third driver and he was told there would be no team orders but to please finish ahead of n·on-Peugeot drivers. Peugeot was running with special cylinder head bolts and revised trans-mission bearings. A total of seven 206 WRCs were en-tered, more than ever before .. This was Ford's first official rally entry for the Focus on gravel with Pirellf tires. "Two days of testing m Portugal proved nothing but we do have good water proofing," said Gunther Steiner, the Project Engineer. They had water cooled the fly by win; throttle motor and all three of their drivers had won the event previously. This was the fhst dme since Sweden 1996 that Subaru had entered a four car team. Mitsubishi had continued their rear sus-pension development work and had added a new engi-neer to help with tl-.e World Rally car. The engineer, Ed Wood, came from Ferrari, an unusual career move. In Group N, the only rival to the three South American entries was Stohl, also the twice Group N winner Campos had withdrawn his entry. Skoda was anticipating a very rough event although Armin Schwarz thought rough roads could be good for the Skoda team. Citroen had entered Bugalski and Puras but Puras had two accidents during recce and volunteered the car· to be driven by Tho-mas 'Radstrom. There were 10 contenders entered in the Teams Cup competition and nine of them were Toyota Co-rollas, five by the Toyota Swe-den team and they were all privately entered. ,---------:7' Carlos Sainz and Luis Moya ran hard in the Ford Focus but could only garner second place, a bit over eight seconds out the win. This was Makinen's l 00th entry in a WRC rally and in this period he has won no fewer than 21 rallies and taken four World Titles. He is the ninth driver to reach this level of experience. His first appearance was the 1000 Lakes -Rally in 1987. He is currently the longest serving member of any team, now in his seventh season with Mit-subishi. The weekend before the event the weather seemed to change for the better. The sun was seen briefly in the north but soon was replaced with rain. Nobody knew what it would be like for the rally but Peugeot was using mud ties as one of the two tread patterns they would be using on the event. Local authori-ties were repairing the roads but recce was a nightmare. Private drivers were fre-quentiy stuck and needed help to get going again. Hyundai was the only team using two wheel drive recce cars. Kenneth Eriksson said, "on nearly every stage we nearly got stuck and just try-ing to drive through the m110 made it almost impossible to make proper pace notes.". Leg 1 -Eight stages, gravel, 138 kms. The rally started on the Thursday evening with one superspecial stage held at Baltar. Rumors abounded that it would have to be can-celed but it was a major oc-casion for the region and huge effort had been expended to rebuild the track before the event. In the end it was not · as bad as some bad feared but the conditions were still ter-rible with fog and mud. Maki-nen made fastest time, a full second in front of Granholm and another 3 .1 in front of Rovanpera. After about 40 cars had run it was necessary to stop the stage. McRae's Focus en-gine stopped momentarily and the electrics of Thiry's Skoda failed and he became the first retirement. The Peugeots were using their mud tires but Makinen had a normal gravel tire with a big groove cut all round it and he finished the stage ·a full second in front of Granholm. Friday morning saw the start of the regular stages with the clouds hung low over the hills and the amount of mud on the tracks was amazing: On the way to the first stage Schwarz's Skoda.stopped with clutch failure and both Octa-via WRCs were out. After the first two stages the rally came alive with Makinen's amazing time· on Stage 4, the third of the day, when he was 25 sec-onds faster than anyone else. "It was water and mud all the time and it must have been good to be the -first car on the1 ;oad. Visibility was so 'bad' you ·could hardly see where to go, it was often down to 20 meters." Rovanpera, running second on the road, led the rally after the first two stages but admitted he had been too r::=111tio11s on the muddy roads. Loix was going well in sixth· place but damaged his Mitsu-bishi on a rock. There were cows on the stage to add to the excitement, only affecting four cars, three of them were Subarus and Gronholm's Peu-geot. The Hyundais were run-ning trouble free. Panizzi felt his suspension was too hard · and h,e was having a _hard time in the fog and he lost 20 seconds at service with elec-trical problems. Auriol broke a suspension arm on Stage 3 along with a water hose and the times spent making the repairs cost him 20 seconds road penalties.

It was McNeil's day. Mike Jones swore that "If you closed your eyes you'd swear that Perry's truck was a Trophy Truck. That thing flies!" Code kicked off the 2001 Mexicali racing season with a few new twists, the major one being the realignment of the Sportsman class, which have always played a large role in their events: 50% of their entries have been the no_ payback racers, who enjoy a 40% reduction in fees and usually one less lap to run. Previously the Sportsman classes reflected all of the usual Pro classes -plus the catchall run-what-ya-brung "Safari" VW based cars. The 2001 Code rules now have only four Sportsman classes, similar to SCORE's layout (plus the popular Safari class as follows. One class is the aforementioned: "Safari", which is the pre-runner-ish VW cars with · limited suspension "Class Pf" -composed of 1, 10, 1600, and 5; "Class 15" - a mixture of 5-1600, 9, and 11 cars, and "Class 18" -all truck classes.

Richard Boyle fought off a tough challenge to finish the day with the overall win in his Aceco at the MOR Wild Wash 250. Race 2 on MD R's 2001 schedule was contested Febru-ary 24, in Barstow. A sense of deja vu hung over the finish line when the race's 1-2 fin-ishers reached it, but more on chat later: Upwards of 70 vehicles started, with a healthy total of 42 going the distance. Class 2B65 Gundry Ave. Signal Hill., CA 90B06 1000 entrant Joseph Lacore was credited with the swiftest lap of the day (41 :05). Keith Cunningham, of Class 100, al-most earned that distinction while recording his division's fa~l lap Lime (41 :15). Unfor-tunately for Cunningham, he disappeared from action nearly as fast.

Courtenay's prized ride suf-fered a TKO on Friday, while he was pre-running the course. Enter Shane Brown who, according to Courtenay, made him an offer he couldn't refuse. That offer included the two veteran drivers teami~ up, in Brown's vehicle, with Courtenay recognized as Driver of Record. The im-promptu Marcourt/Brown Racing partnership was a rous-ing success, as evidenced· by their overall second place fin-ish. As for the race's overall winner, Boyle's Wild Wash 250 victory was achieved in the superb time of 4:33:18 (50.l mph). Boyle defeated Brown and Courtenay by six-plus min-utes, and proved 20 minutes best in Class 100. With a big assist from the Brown Racing team, Courtenay placed first in Class 1000, and improved to two for two on the young season. The triple threat team of Courtenay, Brown and Shane's father Gene com-pleted their six laps in a very swift 4:39:49 (48.9 mph). The trio's efforts resulted in an au-thoritative .44 minute victory over La core, the Class l 000 runner-up. James Hall had a good old time, took it easy and still placed second in Class l 00 and third overall. "We took everybody for rides that we could," said Hall, who pol-ished off his six laps in 4:54:03 ( 46.5 mph). Classmate Stuart Chase (sixth overall) arrived 2 7 minutes after Hall, to place third in l 00 and complete the order of that division's finish-ers. In Class 1600, Paul Sullivan posted fast lap honors (47:50) and dominated the early go-ing. Sullivan continued to show the way, until' grudgingly relinquishing the lead deep in Lap 3. Classmate Justin Barry and Scott Steele took over at that point, and that pair Dusty Times battled tooth and nail to the checkered flag. Steele beat Barry to the finish line, but by a mere three seconds. Barry could not erase the 29 second head start his father Roland had given Brian Steele, but he made up enough of it to claim the Class 160~0 victory. The Barrys' overall time was 5:03:42 (45.0 mph), the fourth fastest clocking on the day: The Steeles took just 26 seconds longer to complete their six laps, but doing so placed them second in 1600 JOln , .S oppe e C 1n 6:43:50 (33.9 mph).

According to Seaney, Boyd reached the fin-ish "with white smoke pouring out of every hole in the mo-tor." Tim Lindsay wound up a distant third, mostly due to a broken torsion finger.

Waldron Memorial Dedicated Markel gather~d up do-nations from the off road community to pay for a plaque, and _then he and some folks built a small concrete pedestal on the crest of a small hill lookin g out toward the val-ley west of the Slash X cafe. Waldron's ashes had been scattered on the same hill. with the future of the are~." He also stated very clearly that the office un-derstands that off roader are not responsible for the nasty accumulation of trash, but rather, it's the lo-cal residents who've fouled their own nest, so to speak. AT the Checkers Twenty-Fi~h Aniversary bash, Jack Waldr.on (right) receives the Vic Van Ella \Award from Uncle Max, given to those who contribute much to the sport of off road racing. M a rch 2 4th, the first Saturday of spring, was a good day fqr off roaders and off roading. It was the date of the second annual springtime Desert Clean-up, organized by Bill Markel, and also the day of the installation and dedication of the memorial to Jack Waldron. The yveather was perfect with bright sunshine and mild breezes as off roaders started to gather at the en-trance to the OHV area near the Tanger Mall. Site of many races and lots· of testing, this part of the· OHV area was not the problem. It was clean. Sadly, the local folk, un-happy since the county started requiring a fee at the nearby dump on Bar-stow Road, not far from the -Slash X, have taken to their refuse out into the open desert and leaving it there. The Clean-up folks found dis-carded couches, hulks of a couple of cars and a van, many, many tires and heaps of general trash. The well-used pit areas were clean -it's the su~round-ing desert that was a dis-grace .. All told, the more than 200 people who came for the work day gathered up over 60 tons of disposables, not including the vehicles that were too big to fit into the dumpster. Dusty Times Local businesses, such as Carl's Jr., Starbucks, Bar-stow Station, and the nearby Chevron Station donated bottled ·water, trash bags, snacks and the like. The "Keep California Beautiful" organization sent items to be used as· raffle prizes, and Boy Scout Troo·p 62, from Barstow, manned the snack conces-sion. One sorry incident marred the special day. A tractor on loan from a racer's sponsor was left near the area overnight to be ready to go to work early in the day. But when the BLM people arrived on Sat-urday morning they found it had been shot at and damaged so severely that it was inoperable. But the highlight of the day was the dedication of a memorial to the memory of Jack Waldron, who passed away last summer. Waldron had worked for the BLM for many years, and though he was long past retirement age, had· continued to stay on the job right up until his death from pneumonia. He was the ideal liaison between the BLM and the off roaders, always sympa-thetic to the needs of the off roaders, while in tune with the land and animals. And he was a nice guy. Ev-eryone liked him, and he's been missed. A group of about 100 of the clean-up folks gath ered for the dedication late in the afternoon. Christopher Grimes, representing Waldron's family, several of whom were in atten-dance, said' "It's great -all you folks here to honor the memory of Uncle Jack. Off road was his life -he talked about you all his life. This is a great honor to him." H.e went on to say that "Jack was an unassuming person, I know he's totally over-·· whelmed." Also in attendance was Ed Waldheim, President of CORVA, who said "We wish we had more like him. We really will miss him." And a representative from the Barstow Field Office of the BLM s12oke briefly to say, "Thank you for the things you've done today, and the things you've done in the past. [I know] off road people are concerned It was a great day. Off roaders got some fresh air and exercise in a feel-good way, and a chance to catch up with old friends. And at the end of the afternoon the Slash X served a huge spaghetti dinner to all the workers, while raffle prizes were handed out a a little icing on the cake. Anyone who'd like to have a look at the Waldron memorial, can find it at N34 45.993 W 117 01. 765. Or, take the road along the fence on the north edge of the Slash X until you come to a two-rut road that heads right up onto a small rocky hill. There's a white cross on the left of the hill, a .tribute to a motorcyclist who apparently died in the ::irea. Jack's memorial is across the trail, on almost the highest point of the little hill. Take a few mo-ments to reflect on a man who made so many friends and did so many nice things.

_,. BITD SILVER STATE SERIES, ROUND 1 · Kaw~saki Team ·Green Laughlin u.s. scrambles Championship By Mark Kanya Ty Davis and Russ Pearson rode their Yamaha to a great overall victory, running the course in Jess than five hours. Ty Davis has known the highs and lows of rac-ing, and the pasl few haven't treated him kindly. After an amazing run in the late '90s, he fell into a dreaded slump. The former. champion might post a win every now and then, but he also suffered a few freak me-c ha nica l DNFs that lin, Nevada. As Round 1 of Best in the Desert's Sil-ver State Series, it's the sole motorcycle-only event since its trails are deemed too tight and technical for an even ATVs, let alone trucks and buggies. It's a far cry from SCORE's event, which is closer to town. However, at first it ap-peared as if Caselli and partner David Pearson would instead wi".l it, as they led most of the race on their DH Racing/IMS/ GPR Yamaha YZ250. Un-fortunately for them and nearly 50 others, they'd taken a wrong turn a few miles off the start, mak-ing each of them guilty of in; tainted his repu ta-____,.,,.-,,-----------,,._,.,,,.._..,...,,.,....,.,.,....,,,,..,.,...--, > tion Through it all, he tried to remain upbeat, looking forward to the time when he once again would make regular visits to the vie tory po-dium, a place that had become like a second home to him once. That time, per-haps, is now. It started Davis hopes when he. and sub-stitute partner Kurt Caselli won the 2000 season-ending Vegas 200, then he and regu-lar partner kicked off 2001 with an-other win, this one at the Kawasaki Team Green Laughlin U.S. cutting however un-intentionally -so promoter Casey Folks levied a 10 minute pen-alty on each team. Officially, that gave the Davis/Pear-son team the win on their Montclair Yamaha/ Moose/F&L Fuel spon-sored YZ250, · their time for the 150 mils coming to four hours, 4 7 minutes, 50 seconds. "My partner, Russ, he rode awe-some today," Davis praised at the finish.

Pearson added, "My loop, anyway, was just awesome. Casey does a phe-nomenal job; it was fun out there." By no means did they run away with it, though. In fact, Team Green hit men Destry Ab-bott and Brian Brown made their way up through the pack and Destry Abbott and Brian Brown chased the Open Pro win all day but caught second spot on their Kawasaki, 37 seconds awav from victorv.

The Folks/Bozarth KTM lifts it's hind leg on the way to the O-30P class win at Laughlin, taking the class by 1 minute, 12 seconds. Ross Williams and Bill Maxim rode their KTM to a nice victory in the 0-40P class, and they picked up 225 points in the bargain. Page 36 May 2001 Dusty Times

"Bria n and I tried our hardest, we just came up a little short," Ab-bott said. "I've got to congratulate Russ and Ty, they rode a heck of a race. It was a great day for racing, that's for sure. We really had a good time. Toward the end there, Ty and I got a little tangled, but that's racing; we had fun."

Sports-man only had to run 10 lap~ and in the 1600 category it was Harry Dunne running 32 and 33 minute laps as he· wound his way around the course for the 1600 Sports-man Buggy win. Jim Phil-lips was the Sportsman Truck winner, running 34 and 35 minute laps in his keen looking truck, taking the class win with ease. In the Sportsman Unlimited Buggy class Zach Reish put in his 10 laps in is great looking car and finished with an elapsed time of six hours and 49 minutes. In the 1600 class there were 12 required laps to be run and some of the con-test ants didn't fare too well. Victor Bussey took the class lead right off the start and there he re-mained for seven laps, the disaster struck, he lost the tranny o n the eighth lap and that's all she wrote, he recorded an unwanted dnf. Sean DeFrank was looking for a good race but it was not his day. Sean had lots of trouble on the first lap, a bit less on Lap 2 and then settled down and started goin' fast but he too was denied a finish, getting only nine laps under his belt before calling it a day due to mechanical troubles. Garit Wallace also was looking for a win this day and he certainly gave it his all, mostly con-sistent lap times but his bright yellow car was only capable of the second place spot, 15 minutes out of the win when the day was over. Davy Girdner knew he had compet1t1on when he started but his canny mind figured that if he didn't .. paint his car, left it in the natural aluminum finish he could really do a number on the rest o the class and that he did. He ran fast consistent laps, ran second until the eighth lap and then went on for the 1600 win·, having a few problems on the 11th lap but getting the checkered flag and a nice win. The Class 9 battle was a good one, they were to run 12 laps and their lap times were less than 20 or 30 sec-onds apart throughout the contest. Art Velasco was the leader for the first three laps, but he failed to finish the fourth lap and retired from the fray, cause un-known. Tyler Petersen_ was running fast and was nudg-ing the leader for that cov-eted first place but he dis-appeared -on the last °lap, never to be seen again. Rob Stapp was in a hurry, he ran second for the first three laps then took the lead and there he re-mained, taking the Class 9 win with ease. He rolled on the first lap but·all that did was bend the spare tire rack a bit and, in Class 9 aerodynamics don't count and Rob brought his good looking car in for the cov-· eted checkered flag. Tim Karas ran good fast race in Sportsman Buggy, completing his eight laps in a bit over six hours and taking home the hard earned checkered flag. Steve Landis was not too happy, he lost .the brand new engine on the first lap and he too earned the dreaded dnf. William Berman led the Sportsman Buggy class for the four laps he ran but pulled out of the Zach Reish drove his super sanitary Bug to the win in the Sportsman Unlimited Class, shown here on the way homw.

News l=ro,n The Direceo, The first CRS rally school of the year was a huge success. Ray Hocker hosted the March 24th event in Ridgecrest, CA at the Heritage House Inn. Appr:oximately 80 people showed up to be enlight.ened on the subject of rallying. The program ran from 8:30 am. to 9:00 pm. and was chock full of . great information. Paula Gibeault, John Dillon and Sue Robinson instructed the co-driver section as well as the SCCA licensing section. Mike Gibe a ult, Doug. Robinson, Ray Hocker, Paul Timmerman and Laughlin O'Sullivan all instructed the drivers in the classroom as well as the dirt course at the fairgrounds. The drivers got driving theory as well as instruction in their vehicles. Co-drivers were given practical experience "behind the terratrip". They navigated the co-driver instructor through the streets of Ridgecrest. After the· classroom instruction on controls and timing a walk through rally was given for everyone to practice on. They were issued time cards and then walked through a "rally" to better understand the controls and calculating arrival.times. Doug Robinson presented car prep with a rally car as a prop. Students were given the opportunity to go over the car and ask questions about safety and competition prep. The evening's pizza party was an open forum for participants to ask questions of the instructors. A lively discussion ensued after someone asked about .husband and wife teams. The Robinsons, the Timmermans and the Gibeaults all weighed in on that question. The school was well attended and all of the participants seemed to be pleased. and better informed by the end of the day. From the huge response Ray got it looks like rallying is really gaining interest on the Western U.S. There were people from the San Francisco area and Utah as well as the Southern California crowd. Hopefully we will see these new folks at one of our rallies this year. Ray hosted a rally cross the day after. This event had a great turnout as well and is part of the CRS rally cross championship. Ray had 62 entries. The vehicles ran the gamut of rally car to pickup truck. Lots of Subarus and even a Mitsubishi Evo VI streetcar were seen kicking up the dust. Justin Hill set fast time in the Street 4WD clas.s. Go Justin! Chrissy Beavis won the CRS Stock class in Doug Whited's VW. Last time he loans you his car, Chrissy! Mike Johnson won the new CRS GT class. Damien Delezene was first in the Street Stock under two liter and Rich De Michele took Street Stock over ·two liter. Julius Vasari was the only open 4WD rally car and set fast time on the course. Frank Gosset won the Gro0up 2/5 dass. Ray Hocker and Ken_Bo 'Takahashi both ran unofficial fast times during the day. Leon Styles hosted the first of his rally crosses at the Tombstone Paintball Park. He had 26 entries show up to play in the mud. Simon Sirin set fast time on the course in his soon to be rally car.

CDRE Pit Report By Sandy Parker MDR-STODDARD VALLEY 300 RACE REPORTS TEAM STEVENS (Class 9) This was an important race for this team as they had a slim chance to capture the MOR Challenger points championship if the events of the race went their way. Keith Stevens started the race and drove the first half with no problems, keeping the car in the lead. Alex Pacheco was given the controls at the half way point and was doing a great job until he rolled the car jumping into the Slash X sand wash. It took a few minutes for trucks to come from CORE. Main and Baker pits to upright the car, losing many positions in the process. After they got the car on all four feet, they noticed a broken ball joint as a resuft from the accid.ent. They hobbled the car to CORE Baker Pit, borrowed and installed a trailing arm from Perry King, strapped on the mangled roof, and strapped in Daniel Poole. the Crazy Flying Brit to bring it home for the fimsh. They finished the race and had to settle for second in class points. GREAT YEAR GUYS! TEAM KING & KING (Class 9) Perry and son Jeff teamed up to run their totally rebuilt Challenger. Perry said they made some suspension changes that didn't work at all as the car was always out of control. He jokingly said "We were so out of control, I scared him so bad that I heard my son scream." Perry drove and Jeff was to ride the entire race and were doing great all day running in second place. Leading the race on the last lap the transm1ss1on just couldn't handle the beating and the guys think they snapped an axle or ring and pinion. Dave Girdner found them on top of the camel humps and towed them to the nearest CORE Pit. TEAM INCH -(Class 1600) Brad again intended to solo the race and started out in fine style passing a few cars on the first lap, maintaining second position. Midway on the second lap he called ahead to a CORE Pit to check the power steering when he comes in. Hoping it was something simple they could repair they unfortunately discovered it was the longest hose that had a leak right in the middle. Rather than taking a few lap_s to repair it, Brad decided to park the car for the day. TEAM HOOK/MESSICK (Class 1600) · Apparently the Checkers didn't have enough cars to make an official Checker supported race so the Jimmy's (Hook and Messick) asked. CORE if we could assist them with pit support for this race. The answer was yes, we were happy to help them out. They started the race and were doing well until the engine studs broke ending their run. CORE PIT SUPPORT CORE MAIN (Sidewi~der/Outlet Center Road) Main was staffed with the Smiths. Dr. Don, wife Hilly ad son Dwayne, accompanied by the expert radio work from Derrin and Victoria Griffin, and help fro~ Ted Ferro and Keith Hurst.• CORE PIT ABLE (Hwy 247~ A last minute added pit for extra course coverage was run by Wayne and Bob Nosala, Randy and Babe Jones. The only action they saw was to diagnose Brad's power steering . problems. CORE PIT BAKER (Stoddard Wells Road) The Baker Pit was run by Rob Stapp, newest CORE member Davy Girdner, The Pat man, Andrew Frency, myself and my nephew Nicholas Parker. The afternoon was very busy with tightening a shock bolt on the King car, sending vehicles to tow in both the King and Stevens Challengers, and rebuild the entire front end to get the Stevens car back on course. CORE PIT CHARLEY HANNEMANN FIBERGLASS, INC. 84-88 Ranger Conversion Kits 84-88 Toyota Tundra Conversion Kits 89-95 Toyota Tundra Conversion Kits Fenders, Hoods and Bedsides for Chevy S-10, Chevy Full Size, Ford Full Size, Toyota and Nissan 1132 W. Kirkwall Road, Azusa, CA 91702 626-969-7317 May 2001 (Inner Hodge Road) Bob Depew, Gary and Kim Hall, and Mr. Dennis Dean opened a CORE pit somewhere in the Hodge Road vicinity. They were not asked to work on CORE cars but were able to assist non-CORE cars . by changing a throw out bearing on an unlimited car, replaced a rear trailing arm on a 5-1600, welded mounts for a rack and pinion on a 10 car. Who said these guys don't earn their pay?? MORE-LEAPIN' LIZARD 250 TEAM McGUFFIN (Class 9) This was Darin's first race back since he broke his leg in a motorcycle accident a year or so ago. He broke his leg in about 83 places and his doctor screwed and glued all the bre~ks, added pins, plates, rods, hose clamps and some duct tape. His doctor guaranteed his work so as soon as Darin soaked off the cast he decided to race it and see how it would hold up. He pampered in his plush riding Challenger, yea right! Darin was scheduled to solo the race but had Kyle Gomolka standing on the side lines just in case he had to get out. Darin was definitely on a mission, keeping the car at the front of the field for the first seven laps without any mechanical problems. On Lap 7 while passing a Sportsman car, Darin drove over their wheels which sent him flying, rolling the car three times-in a sand wash. Luckily the car landed n all fours so rea!ly didn't loose any time and ma.inta.ined second place. He did bonk his head on the cage pretty hard and his sore leg got banged around a bit, so he·asked for Kyle to take the last two laps. After a driver change, Kyle was strapped in and drove the last two and 1/8 laps with no problems. The 1/8 of a lap was extra as Ky le missed the checkered flag and continued on an extra lap until Darin radioed him to bring it back. Darin and Kyle managed to bring the car to a second place finish keeping ahead of the third place car by on! y 11 seconds. TEAM ST APP/CRAIG (Class 9) After taking some time off for a few races to do some car upgrades, Rob Stapp and Todd Craig were back at it. Rob started the race and quickly noticed that some of the suspension modifications did not work as planned and needed more testing time. Rob finished his four laps without losing too many positions. Todd drove the second half and was making up time on the McGuffin car after they rolled. Todd knew if he pushed it very hard they may be able to steal second place from McGuffin. They almost pulle it off but came up 11 seconds short. Rob and Todd ended up third in the Challenger class. TEAM BURNS (Class 9) This was the first race for the totally upgrad~d Challenger car. Johnny Burns did all· the work himself including motor, tranny and Continued on page 44 Dusty Times

l. major chassis work. He talked Sway-A-Way into letting him do the R&D on the newly developed Challenger shock line. Johnny also intended to solo the race but did have his friend JB in the pits if he needed a back relief driver. At the end of Lap 4 Johnny pulled in to CORE Main for a drink of water but after an inspection of the car, a ball joint nut and washer had hammered off. Main pit was able to retrieve a new nut and washer and got him back on the road. On Lap 6 he stopped for a fuel change and to put a few pounds of torque into the rear axle/drum nuts. On Lap 7, Johnny, was beat and needed out of the car so he pulled in Main and was extricated and JB slithered into the car. After a lap JB called in that there was a tranny like noise and that he wanted it looked at the next CORE pit. The tranny was smoked and to avoid further damage they send a trailer to get him. CORE PIT SUPPORT CORE MAIN (Sidewinder/Outlet Center Road) The Main pits were manned by myself, Nicholas Parker, Andrew Freney, and the Stapps. We were kept busy, with scheduled fuel stops and driver changes. Ball joint nut and washer was installed on the Burns Challenger and the brake drums were tightened. CORE PIT ABLE (Barstow College) Jim Wagner and Davy Girdner had a slow day of pitting except for checking Darin's Challenger after the roll and checking the Burt's tranny later in the day. CORE PIT CHARLEY (Stoddard Wells Road) Brad Inch, T.J. Craig and Dave Girdner diagnosed and oiled up a seized steering knuckle on the Burn's Challenger. BEST-IN-THE-DESERT -LAS-VEGAS 200 TEAM McGILLIVRAY (Protrucks) Kevin McGillivray driving with rookie driver Lewis Navaro battled an 8 Protruck field in the Nevada desert hoping to wrap up the year's close points championship. Kevin wanted to thank his pit crew for the blistering quick fuel stop which only took 40 seconds. Kevin also said he discovered another key to his recent success, he did all the preparation to the truck by himself and had absolutely no part failures or down time. The only major mishap that occurred was his rider puking in his enclosed helmet a few times during the race. At one point, Kevin looked at his Lewis to see how he was doing, but couldn't see his face, only a chunky orange colored slime on the inside of his helmet shield. They had a perfect blowout ratio, having four flats for four laps but still managed to be the first truck over the finish line at the end of the day. They won their class by 11 minutes, finished third overall, and won the Best-in-Desert Protruck points championship, CONGRA TULA TIO NS!!! YEAR 2001 C.O.R.E.

It's Springtime now and the desert is blooming. The days are getting longer which gives us more daylight to work on our toys. Boy, life doesn't get any better than this!! The Jack Waldron Memorial Desert Clean-up was a big success. There were maybe 200 good people out there picking up trash. Something like 60 tons of trash!! Wow! Bill Markel deserves a pat on the back. San Felipe turned out to be a beautiful race weekend, warm sunshine, beautiful ocean, some "Spring Breakers" to party with ... a good time was had by everybody. Tom Mangione "volunteered" to be Race Manager and did his usual splendid job! This even though it took him a little longer than usual to get down there because of a problem getting across the border. Seems he didn't have enough "steekers" so the Federales sent him back for more. Tom had a good group for the pits. He ran Pit A and the other Pit Captains were Brian Geer, Pit B; Brian Logan, Pit C and Brent Parkhouse at Pit D. Pits A, B and C didn't have much to so, some fueling, some tire changes, some welding, the usual stuff. BreA:t got his new truck stuck for 4-1/2 hours but he finally made it to Pit D at the southernmost point of the course. The Pit D crew's biggest challenge was on the Class 12 car of Tom Ridings. Whenever Tom hit the brakes, the throttle went wide open. That makes it kinda hard to stop. The pitters weren't able to fix the brake/throttle assembly that had broken so Tom finished up the race by not braking! By the way, neither Brent nor Brian Parkhouse were racing but they made the trip to help out with pit support. That's the F.A.I.R. spirit! A very special thanks to them and all the other pit supporters! As for the racers, Scott Steinberger was third in Pro Trucks, Tom "Brakeless" Ridings finished third in Score Lites and Dale Ebberts wound up fourth in 1/2-1600. As is usually the case, the best stories are from the racers who didn't do so well. For instance, Brian Logan. Brian's race started off badly when he lost a coil 100 miles into his Pre-Run. Then he blew the engine on his race car Friday. George, from Wik's Engines, helped to find a San Felipe Local with a freshly rebuilt engine. The only payment asked for the engine was to let his son ride for half the race. Not a bad deal for either party. The engine was finally hooked up and they got to bed at 2:00 a.m. But, since they missed Friday, they had to get up at 4:00 a.m. to get the car tech'ed and the drivers banded. The car ran great and Brian passed all the cars that were in front of him until just before Check 2, he hit a tree and rolled. A Ii ttle later, a shock boss broke off a front trailing arm. It was welded up but then the other side broke off. Again it was welded up and then, at RM 195, they ran out of fuel! After gas was scrounged up, Brian took off for the finish. After almost having a head-on collision with a Local, a cylinder blew in the engine. But they did finish-! Perseverance pays off again. Brady Wisdom, with Jerry Longo as co-driver, was doing a stint as "Hired Gun" for Mike Long in his two set 1600 car. Everything was going well until, at about RM 70, Brady says he "put the car onto its side". Well, there was an in-car camera going at the time and Jerry brought the tape to the F.A.I.R. meeting. It showed a full-on roll-over! We had to play the tape several times before Brady reluctantly admitted it. A broken shock tower was welded at the next pit and the car was racing again. That is until the clutch started slipping. That was the straw that got them to DNF. Curt Geer also blew his race engine on Friday. They spent all day rebuilding it and missed all the fun of going through. Contingency and Tech. Curt was doing well, in second at Check 2. Then he hit a rock causing a flat, had another flat later on and then a broken spindle. He had to run on the broken spindle so long that the drum wore through taking out all the brakes. This did the car in, DNF at RM 95. SNORE's Buffalo Bill's 400 also had some F.A.I.R. racers. Randy Miller tried out his 1/ 2-1600 in that very May 2001 competitive class and Dan Owen, with Joel Mohr sharing the driving, were in the 24 car Class 9 field. Dan and Joel had a strong second going until the last lap. The car got stuck in sand and they lost first gear in the trans getting out. In spite of that, they finished third in class and seventh or eighth overall. Great finish! The best thing that happened to Randy Miller was that he drew the number one starting position in his class. It pretty much went downhill from there. The first 10 miles of the course were flat and fast turning to fairly rough. The car's suspension became so unpredictable that he rolled. A couple of cars passed while they righted the car but it put them down on time. He had a flat front tire at RM 50 and was going slowly.when a faster came up from behind. In pulling over to let him by, Randy ran through a bush. The car endo'ed landing on its roof, then the second car hit them ripping off the left front suspension. A stub axle also broke so their race was over. Three F.A.I.R. cars were at the very rough M.O.R.E. race in Barstow. Kathy and Stacy Fay drove their Ford truck to a win in spite of breaking a rear spring u-bolt. Papa Jim cut some safety chain off their trailer and just chained it all together. With a broken exhaust header the truck could be heard everywhere on the course. It was described as sounding "like shotgun blasts". Harry Dunne didn't fare as well this time as he did at the last M.O.R.E. race. He only made 12 miles before the rear torsion housing tore off the car. Oh well, he had fun at the Chili Cook Off and the car will be ready for the next race. New member Alvin Fussell ran his first race in Class 1/2-1600 an is now officially hooked. He started the race knowing there was a cracked head on the engine but wanted to see how far he could go. A little miscue cracked the nose cone on his brand new Dave Folts transmission but that didn't stop him either. Then, on Lap 7, the engine dropped a cylinder and he thought the race was over . When he came into the pit to load it on the trailer one of his pit crew found it was actually a spark plug wire. It was put back on and they motored on to a second place finish. A pretty good first ever race. On April 28th, Joel Mohr is hosting a "Challenger Play Day" at Hodge Road in Barstow. Several Class 9 cars will ride and talk about racing to anybody that shows up. Past events have drawn many new racers to the sport. F.A.I.R. is having their sometimes annual "Fun in the Desert" weekend in May. Location will be off Bessemer Mine Road in Lucerne Valley.
