Trail Notes ... BLM NEWS -The BLM's Desert Advisory Council is seeking nominations for five southern Californians with an interest and knowledge of the California desert and it's natural resources to serve on the BLM's California Desert District Advisory council for the 2002-2004 three year term. The positions to be filled include two.recreation representatives, one representative each for public-at-large, nonrenewable resources and wildlife. Nominations must be received by Thursday, August 21, 200 l. If you would like more information, please call BLM External affairs at 909-697-5220. Wouldn't it be nice if some off road racing connected person would be appointed to one of these positions? Wouldn't it be nice to have a say in the comings and goings of our local BLM? Anyone out there interested? BARSTOW DOIN'S -The Barstow Chamber of Commerce is hosting an Off Road Night on Tuesday, August 21, 2001 from 6 to 10 p.m. on East Main Street, "Old Town Barstow." They need OHV club members to showcase their cars, trucks, bikes, Quads, dune buggies, etc. They are also looking for vendors and club displays. For more information call Rose Foster at the BLM Field Office. 760-252-601 l. PIT TEAM PROBLEM RESOLVED -Got a note from Stephen Stenberg the other day regarding the problems that surfaced after the big Baja race in November. "The Mag 7 Rac:e Team and Pro Pits of Mexico are pleased to announce the amicable resolution of Baja 2000 race equipment issues and that race team equipment is available for return to the racers. Race team representatives should contact Mag 7 at e-mail or by phone at 619-303-6283." We are glad everything was resolved. We wish nothing but the best for these two fine organizations who do so much for the racer . FINAL FLAG - We were so~ry to hear of the passing of Robert Kirk, a long time off roader. He worked for many years with Larry Ragland, Jim Pierce, Ruben and Bert Wood, John Herder, the Foddrills and many others. Bob was only 60 years of age and succumbed to cancer. He leaves his wife Lynda and son Bill and "Baja Jim." He will be sorely missed. MORE FROM THE BLM -Off roaders filed a lawsuit a~ainst the BLM looking to have the closure of thousands of acres in the sand dunes lifted and reopened to off road activity in the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreational Area west of Yuma, AZ. The American Sand Association, the American Motorcycle Association and CORY A claim that the BLM improperly closed 49,000 acres in a lawsuit, filed in San Diego. BLM closed the acreage to settle a lawsµit brought by the Center For Biological Diversity and the Sierra Club. They claimed that the BLM was failing to protect endangered species at the dunes. But, the off roaders contend that the BLM implemented the closure without conducting an environmental review with public participation as required by law. Stay tuned on this one! RED FACE DEPARTMENT - Apologies are in order. We recently mis-identified the very quick Class 1 car driven by Scott McMillin to victory in a couple of Fud races. It should have been identified as a Porter chassis. Sorry for the error. Demoted to Cub reporter. BAJA 500 - SCORE Reports that more than 250 avid racers are ready to do battle in the 500. Brian Collins will be first off the line in the four wheel division and Johnny Campbell will be the first motorcycle to start. Collins won Class 8 in 1998 and would like to take this win in his Trophy Truck. Also, Robby Gordon will be joining the race in his Team Gordon F-150 Ford in the Trophy Truck Class. Looking for a· second straight victory this year, the Herbst brothers, Tim and Ed will be running hard in their Ford Trophy Truck. Troy Herbst, the youngest of the brothers will be looking once again to win the Class l competition in his Smithbuilt open wheel car. The race has entries from 12 states, Japan and Mexico. 490 miles in one long loop will take them from Ensenada and back. There are 23 classes (16 for cars and trucks and 7 for motorcycles and ATY's). First bike leaves at 6 a.m., cars and trucks at 7:30, spaced 30 seconds apart. Along with those mentioned above, rnanv. former winners, Larry Ragland, Bud Feldkamp, Mark and Scott McMillin (dad Corky will miss this years event), Rob MacCachren, Curt LeDuc, Larry Roeseler, Jonah Street and Dan Smith will be competing for the coveted win. Ragland will be co-driving with Brian Collins. Feldkamp will be codriving with his son Buddy. Stay tuned for the full story in next month's issue ·of Dusty Times. D OBBY GORDON -Once again Robby gave it his all at Indy but once ~gain, he was looking good initially, ran in the top ten for the rest of the race but the car failed him late in the race an he was a dnf. Too bad! We've always said that Robby certainly has the skills to win the race and one of these days the right combination of skill and equipment will get him to the winner's circle. Soon, we hope! · BEST IN THE DESERT-The BITD Tonopah 300 is set to go on June 22-24. The race will run through the towns of Silver Peak and Goldfield and through the old ghost town of Montezuma. A brand new 100 mile section runs through Fishlake Valley, in the Sierra Nevada Range and it should be really beautiful. You can read all the details of the race right here in Dusty Times in . the next issue. DIM OF THE WORLD RALLY - Rim had the largest entry it has ever had ~nd we here at Dusty Times are more than glad to congratulate the Rim Organizing Team for ·a!l their hard work and many months of preparation.

After driving the first four laps, Inch turned matters over to Jones, who became available after suffering a Lap 1 TKO in his own vehicle. Inch and Jones were able to match the Steele's 44.4 mph average speed, but time lost changing a fan belt and flat proved their undoing. , Incidentally, in last month's Off Road Advertiser a not-so-anonymous reporter referred to Inch as a "veteran Checker." Just to set the record straight, Inch, who is President of CORE, has not jumped ship. Unlike the majority of his classmates, Brian Walsh came up big in Class 1000. The Walshes, Brian Sr. and Jr., polished off their seven lap as~ signment in 6:42:09 (41.8 mph) to defeat runner-up Terrie Tavis by 43 minutes. Tavis, who has continued to improve with leaps and bounds this season, was per-haps the only racer to com-plete all seven Ridgecrest laps without a flat tire. Among those left in Tavis' wake was Whit Courtenay, who tasted defeat for the first time this season.

Six classmates roared off the line with Folts, but nary a one saw the check-ered flag. Folts, and his father Dave, combined for a 7:58:58 (35.1 mph} final clocking. The younger Mr. Folts was quite winded after driving Laps 3 through 7. "I'm dead," he said, after climbing from his vehicle. " I'm ready to go lie down for 20 to 30 minutes," he wished aloud.

At the completion of Lap 1, Mark Growe held a narrow advantage over Carolyn Hines on the track, while Mike Barnett was leading on the clock. Growe and Hines began to edge away from the field on the second loop, as their personal duel in-tensified. Growe completed Lap 2 three seconds faster than Hines, who then out-raced Growe's son Keith by five sec-onds on Lap 3. The two lead-ers went toe-to-toe the remain-der of the way, with the younger Growe hanging on for a 34 second victory. Growe im-proved his 2001 record to three for three, while completing his four laps in 5:46:30 (2 7. 7 mph). Despite being unable to over-take the Class 1450 Sportsman winners, Hines finished a su-per-game runner-up, 44+ min-utes ahead of third place fin-isher Ryan Wallace. FYI: Wallace, who teamed up with Dave Pasienski, was making his racing debut in a vehicle built in just four weeks. Pretty im-pressive. Barrie Thompson checked in fourth, five minutes behind Wallace and 12 minutes ahead of fifth place finisher Christopher Pit, Jason Nemake (6th) and Mike Barnett (7th) completed the order of Class 14 50 finishers.

Honorable mention also goes to Ryan Esterlein of Class 1300, who dispatched three-quarters of his assignment be-fore bidding Ridgecrest adieu. And that will do it. Kudos to the MDR gang for another great event, and congratulations to all this year's competitors. Next up is the "KarTek 400" June 23 at Lucerne. You might want to bring an ice chest. __ -.,,,,,,.

21ST WRC RALLY ARGENTINA McRae Wins south Of The Equator By Martin Holmes Photos: Maurice Selden Colin McRae and Nicky Grist show their flying form on the way to a spectacular win in their Ford Focus in Argentina. The 2001 Argentina Rally saw Colin McRae finally fin-ish a rally, first time since last year at Sanremo, but, not only that, it was his first win in 11 months It was his seventh ap-pearance on this event and McRae made a storming start, taking advantage of a very late starting position which many assumed would be a disadvan-tage. After recovering from a delay due to a spin, Ri_chard Burns rose to second place, which he maintained for most of the event. Pirelli tires were on the first three cars to fin-ish and for two days scored every stage victory. Argentina's tricky roads claimed many victims, includ-He saved it! Freddy Loix and Sven Smeets went on to take the sixth place finish after a near disaster in their Mitsubishi Carisma GT. ing world champion Marcus Gronholm, also Didier Auriol and Kenneth Eriksson. Skoda had a terrible rally after both their entries were eliminated in a freak accident. A water tank truck, racing to a fire crashed into both cars while they were waiting at a re-grouping stop and the incident also badly injured Skoda chief Jens Puhlmann who was standing nearby. This was the fifth round of the WRC and it was the sec-ond rally -of the sea.son on clear gravel roads. For this event,_ because of the long dis-tances involved, the FIA al-lowed the competitors three days of recce instead of the usual two and a half days. Still in effect was a teams gentlemen's agreement limit-ing pre-event testing to a _few days before the event. Several teams went to Kenya, which worked well for general rough road testing. In Argentina the conditions were a variety of sand, rock and lots of. ruts. It is an event which seems easy for the drivers but can be de-ceptively tricky. Tommi Makinen started the event holding a six point lead in the Drivers Series over Carlos Sainz and Mitsubishi had an 18 point lead on Ford in the Manufacturers points. In Group N there had been a change in results from the Por-tugal rally. The cars of the first two finishers, Ligato and Stohl were declared irregular which meant the new Group N leader was Gabriel Pozzo (Ar-gentina). He had 13 points and led Gillet, Walfridsson and Da Silva, all with 10 Eibach Springs is proud to announce it's complete line of ultra high qualilv off-road springs.

In Group N there was heavy concentration oflocal crews, the only top Eu-rope an driver was Stig Blomqvist, though Stig's co-clrivi>r, An~ Goni comes from Venezuela. 65 crews made the start but the rally did not at-tract many drivers from other South American countries, notably four from Chile and two from Uruguay. There was an entry from the reigning Mexican rally Champions Gabriel Marin, the first com-petitor from Mexico to enter a World Rally, and, due to the reverse seeding system, Marin was the first car to start the rally. A big shock came when Carlos Sainz woke on Satur-day night in agony with a trapped nerve in his back and severe pain in his legs just be-fore the start of recce. For some time Ford was worried whether he would be able to take the start. Carlos said, " I was able to drive each stage in recce twice, except for a couple which we already knew, so we drove them only once, but, I must say, I have felt better before." Team Di-rector Malcolm Wilson ex-plained, We knew he really wasn't well when we came to the shakedown and Carlos didn't complain about any-thing at all!"

There were only two en-tries in 5-1600. Frank Puglia had a fairly slow first lap and retired from the contest. Mike Powada and Gary Price split the driving and ran a nice clean race, one flat tire and a trophy and some bucks for the win. · In Sportsman Buggy there were five competitors ready for their three lap race. Alas, Tony Simons spent almost five hours doing one lap and he retired. Bert Schneider only got two laps in before exiting the race as did Tho-mas Reck, who ran two good laps, th~n disappeared. Eric Sheppard ran three· good laps and thought he had a shot at the win but when all was said and done he ended up in second, only 43 sec-onds away from the Sports-man win. The winning Sportsman Buggy· was handled by Jason Gubler, first lap and mom Samantha, last two laps. They had no problems and took the win by less than a minute. Jeremy Harmon got back into the winning groove at Caliente, taking the Class 9 win with over five minutes to spare. Ken and Clay Flippin had tire and belt troubles throughout the day but they came in for a great Class 10 win, 2 minutes in hand. Sportsman Truck only had two entries and neither one fared very well. Randy Wilson looked good off the start but he failed to com-plete his first lap. Mark Petit and crew were out there as usual but they only got in one long lap and they retired to the trailer.

Jahromi in his Ford Escort Richard Tuthill and navigator Richard Bennie were the victors at Round 2 of the SCCA ProRally schedule at Cherokee Trails ProRally. The three day event held in the Cherokee National Forest of Tennessee was the first FIA and SCCA co-sanctioned event since the late 80s. Tuthill, in a Mitsubishi Lancer Eva IV, fought off a hard-charging John Buffum who was substituting for his step~on, Paul Choinere. Choinere, who was the winner of Round 1 at Sno*Drift last January, had to miss this event as he has a severe ear infection that was causing vision problems. Third overall was Seamus Burke in a Mitsubishi Lancer Eva VI which had been borrowed from another Page 30 competitor while he awaits the arrival of his new car. This event differed from most SCCA events in that several days before the rally teams were allowed to pre-run the course and make recce notes rather than run with tulip diagrams. Drivers that chose not to spend the extra cash for the two days of testing were given the standard notes supplied by the organizers, but were at a disadvantage of never seeing the road. As the transit to the service area was over an hour away and the cars had to be out of the forests by nightfall all three days of the rally were held during the daylight hours. The first day had five stages, the second another five, and four on the final day for a total of 14 stages. The field was just shy of 80 cars and the entry list boasted the best in US Rallying as well as a few from ac.ross the pond. For Hyundai, John Buffum was teamed with his old-time FIA navigator Neil Wilson in the Tiburon normally run by Paul Choinere. His teammate was Noel Lawler who hadn't finished an event since September of last year. Noel was trying to get the monkey off his back and trying to earn points for Hyundai.

The Soutos briefly held the 1-2 spots, before McKenzie re-rallied. At the finish, Jorge Souto emerged with the Rally A class victory.

In Class 5, Gary Williams of San Juan Capistrano defeated his competition to end up in victory circle. of the Open and 125cc Mo-torcycle classes, with a field of ten taking part. Angelo lngrande gave a hint of things to come, when he beat his "Open" classmates to the checkered flag. Matt Tedder placed runner-up, with Salvador Hernandez taking third and Richard Thorp fourth. The final four finishers respectively were Jano Montoya, Todd LeDuc, Ivan Navarrete and Kyle LeDuc. Andres Campos G. claimed first place in the 125cc class.

The mini-trucks took cen-ter stage next, as a field of seven took to the track. There were four starters in the Champ Truck (Pro-Lites) class and three in the Desert Truck-Class 7. Rocket Rick Huseman lived up to his nickname as he blasted clear off the line. Gerardo Novelo was away second, followed by Bob Beyer and Brian Cavitt. Try as they did, nobody was go-ing to beat Huseman. The defending Estero Beach champ, seemed at times to be waiting on his field. Each time they drew near, Huse-man would simply draw off again. At the finish, it was narrowly beating LeDuc to the checkered flag. Super Truck 2 runner-up honors went to Ibarra, with O'Neal's maiden four wheel voyage resulting in a third place finish. High-flying Mario Bustamante won both days, to get the weekend win in the competitive 5-1600 class, or Baja 2. Sunday's action began midmorning with the Safari class finale. Guillermo Soltero was out quickly in search of a weekend sweep. Dave Spracklin led the pur-suit, followed by Jesse Miller and Devin McClave. There was very little change in the running order, as Soltero continued to lead the field on a wild and futile chase. It was all Soltero at the fin-ish, as he completed his flag-to-flag win and his Saturday/ Sunday sweep. The Safari class champion, who hails from Tijuana, proved best over Spracklin to claim the title. Spracklin's runner-up finish in the finale placed him fourth overall. McClave beat Elvira Felix for third in the main, but it was Felix second and McClave third in overall scoring.

Leading the Desert Truck-Class 7 contingent was Javier Sacio. Sacio had his way with overmatched ri-vals Matt Carver and John Beyer. Sacio waltzed to the win, with Carver finishing steadily to place second. Saturday's final race was for full size trucks. There were three entrants in the Super Truck 2 class, and one each in Super Truck 4, For-mula 1, Grand National and Stock Truck (8s). With 're-spect to the latter four classes, there was little sus-pense regarding finishing po-sitions. Exceptions were :"Dynamite Dan" Canun, who imploded in the late go-July 2001 ing, and Dwight Greene, who limped past the finish with a broken tie rod. Jim McKenzie had no such prob-lems, and Curt LeDuc was only mildly hampered by a fi-nal lap flat. As expected, both veterans completed their laps post haste. What the race may have lacked in suspense, was more than . made up for in sheer speed. A good portion of that horsepower came from the trio locking horns in the Su-per Truck 2 class.

liams, Richard Burnworth·, Guy Savedra and Sergio Silva took up the chase in tha t or-der. Spencer Low and Pete Saldana also grabbed holeshots in their respective divisions. Before long, Bustamante, who has enjoyed tremendous success at Estero Beach, was challenged for the lead by Steve Errea. These two game competitors slugged it out all the way to the checkered flag. Both would capture division champion-ships, but bragging rights went to Errea. The Woodland Hills, CA star beat everyone to the checkered flag to take first place in Formula 2. Spen-cer Low also completed a sweep of his division, taking first in Formula 3. Low, who resides in Arizona, defeated Carlos Zuniga, the Formula 3 class runner-up. Bustamante proved much the best in the Baja 2 class, and took another first place trophy back to his home town of La Puente, CA. Guy Savedra could not keep pace with "Super Mario", but he and his slick new paint job did well to place second. Pete Saldana finished strongly to earn runner-up honors in For-mula 2, and Sergio Silva claimed third in Baja 2. John Kelly soloed once more in Formula 4, giving the Fon-tana, CA resident the Class 9 title. In the Baja 1 class, Gary Williams and co-driver Karla Galvan led from start to fin-ish. Williams,• of San Juan Capistrano, swept both heats to reign supreme. Richard Burnworth, who was celebrat-ing his 36th birthday, was forced to settle for Baja 1 run-ner-up honors.

MAGNA FLUX As a fme way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo the Friends of El Mirage had a big weekend at the dry lake, including the second annual clean-up. The group co-hosted the event with the local BLM office, the El Mirage Cham-ber of Commerce and some nice people from CORY A. Essentially they popped for continental breakfast and ham-burgers and hot dogs for lunch on ?aturday, and the guests repaid · the favor by cleaning up some of the tons of trash that have been dumped in the area in the past year. They also posted some signs, fenced a couple of danger-ous mine shafts and replaced a flag pole that had been vandal-ized. There was a pile of free raffle prizes to be handed out also, and a 50/50 raffle which netted the winner over $200. Participants were also given commemorative t-shirts. Then, as thanks for all their hard work, on Sunday there was a poker run around the area, or those who prefer spectating could watch the first event of the SCT A (Southern California Timing Association). These are the "lakesters" which do timed runs on the long, flat mid-section of the dry lake, attempting to set new ·speed· records.

Some of the younger set hopped on their quads with a stack of trash bags and rode off into the distance to . collect trash, but most parked their vehicles near the rim of the dry lake and hoofed it out into the brush. It was a lovely spring day {but it did get hot) and one of the small rewards was a nice display of a variety of wildflow-ers scattered midst the bushes. A big concern at El Mirage is the piles of nails and broken glass left at old camp sites. One of the cle-an-up teams had a huge mag-net on wheels, attached to a lawnmower-like handle, which they could roll back and forth over an old campfire, and nails would pop up out of the ground and adhere to it. -They collected literally thousands of nails with that gizmo and another big mag-net that was simply tied to a hefty string and dragged through sus-picious areas. Nowadays it is against the rules to bring glass bottles or con-tainers 0£ any type to El Mirage, and after scraping up the remains of countless broken bottles it's easy for me to understand the ruling. Since the area is so suited to high-speed runs and is one of the few places where a driver can let it all hang out with impunity, it seems prudent to eliminate those things that will damage tires. So glass containers are out, and they're thinking about mak-ing it against the rules to burn wood with "embedded metal" {nails, screws, bolts, etc.) -in other words, pallets. Personally, I'd be in favor of also disallowing the practice of burning old tires. They make a noxious cloud of smoke, and then they leave behind a nest of wire The host organization had rented a big dumpster for the weekend, and after five hours of picking through the shrubs and all along the edges where the pre-vailing winds blow the light-weight stuff, it was full to over-flowing. They found a couple of big heaps of trash that looked as if someone cleaned their yard and preferred to dump in the desert rather than pay a fee at a land fill, but for the most part, thl stuff was just rubbish left be-hind by the people who use the dry lake for recreation. Talk about fouling your own nest! Among those who attended were Ed Waldheim, President of CORVA, the organization that works to protect the rights of off roaders to use public lands, and Mike Pool, the BLM State Direc-tor, who flew down from Sacra-mento for the day, to see what it was all about. The _SCT A showed up in force, with over a hundred folks signing up for the clean-up, and the balance of the people were sand sailors, dirt bike riders and four wheelers. I counted four people from the off road racing community. Including me. Next year it would be nice to see a whole lot more of you out there. Off road racers have used El Mi-rage as a test site· for over 30 years, and surely bear some of the responsibility for its continued good health. So, when the notice appears in the Dusty Times or in the CORY A newsletter next year, mark the date on your calendar, gather up the gloves, buckets, trash bags and rakes, and head for El Mirage. It's a great family outing. There's plenty of time for recreation after the chores are done, and even doing the chores is not onerous. At the worst it's grimy and hot, at best, a way to meet new people. See you there next year. __ ...,,,,, Fully Prepped Class 8 Race Truck i "02000 Dura last Body 0~nd New 514 c.i.

Mike Seefeldt took the win and the points lead in Single Buggy, shown here with a lot of extra weight on board. Dusty Times The Midwest Off Road Raceway at Fort Dodge, Iowa was the setting for the season opener of the CORR 2001 Series. Good weather was the order of the day but the rain gods cast their spell on Saturday night and Sunday and the muck made the course unusable for Sunday, so there was only one day of racihg, the postponed Sunday event to be on July 28 when CORR returns to Iowa. It all kicked off on May 19 when more than 100 vehicles arrived to race in their class for dollars and glory. There was lots of close racing and those "in attendance got their money's worth. In the Pro-Lite class, Jason July 2001 Scotty Taylor won a hard fought battle in Pro 2 and he took the win in his keen looking Ford. Crowder showed everyone the way home, taking the win in a hotly contested race, Steve Federico took the silver medal and Jimmie Crowder, Jason's dad took third place honors. Chris Brandt and Chaz Hord were fourth and fifth. Pro-2 had nine contenders, all capable of the win but most of the dicing, bumping and grinding went on between Scott Taylor and Evan Evans. When the dust cleared Taylor took the win, his 18th career victory, Carl Renezeder was second, Ken Kincaid was third and Evans was demoted to fourth after a penalty for passing under the yellow flag. R.J. Flanagan took fifth, ahead of Larry Gourlie. In Pro-4 it was Rob MacCachren all the way, taking over from where he left off last year. Jason Baldwin took the second spot, a best ever finish for him. Dear old friend Curt LeDuc was third across the line and is never one to be taken lightly on the race track.

El Prez Sez (This ain't no Wahzoo) Well, this July 2001 issue of the Dusty Times bench marks a new era for the Checkers club, a change of · the guard so to speak. We have had several Wahzoo wannabes, guest writers, New W ahzoos and so on. No one, I will say it again, No one has ever come close to the original W ahzoo nor will they ever and I will tell you that I'm not even going to try and emulate his' unique writing style. So say goodbye and welcome in what I hope will become an informative Checkers club column. We, as a club with almost 28 years of racing and pitting experience, certainly have enough going on to keep this interesting and informative, so here we go. Tom Koch seems to be involved in everything this year and is enjoying his racing as the points leader for the Pro Dirt series. He hosted all of the club members that attended the M.D. R . Ridgecrest 300 race at his hilltop hacienda and again proved his skills as king of tri tip. At the time of this writing he is preparing for the Baja 500. I will have a full report next but can tell you that we had four entries: Tom Koch and, Richard Boyle, President and Class 5 champion George Seeley, Billy Robertson and Doug Brown with Stuart Case and the ever popular Mexico entry of the world famuu:; Canuy Cane Car. Our Pits were well covered as usual by some of the club's finest pit captains such as last year's V.P. Crackle Lee and our V.P. from the three years prior, the always present multiple Pit Captain of the Year recipient, Reverend Roy. We had our standard pit at George Espinos and expert service provided by Crowley (Goldwaith?) in the deep south. Back in Ridgecrest before the big bash we had a seven car field running Checker colors. The pits were well covered with Reverend Roy, Jim Gregory, Ty Goode running things. Our party host was ripping up this backyard course with what was looking like a sure win when his intake manifold started taking in more than it was supposed to through a big crack, serious down time dropped him to a fourth in class. George Seeley ran a solid race and finished with a first in·class, Big Air Bob was having a different kind of day. Word is the car broke, front, back and middle. This usually hard to beat entry was having a bad day and then to make things worse he Dusty Times was fined at the meeting for being passed by a Class 9. Next one Bob, I know you'll kick some-! Jimmy Tucker was having problems with a cracked computer chip in the engine management system. Jam min Jimmy Hook ran out front till a blown fan belt took it's toll on the motor but was still able to pull a class. Vic Bussey lost a motor off the start and was done early. Now the fast cats to beat were the Steele Bros., Brian and Scott. They slammed· that course and went home with a first in class and second O.A. Great job as always by racers and pitters! Checkers are going to be partying on the 21st of July at our annual summer party. Location is the same as last year, thank you Lou and Lois. Make sure you don't miss it, tickets are on sale now at every meeting for $5.00 each or call for details. We are also gearing up for our second year at the Off Road Expo in Pomona. Last year we raffled off a brand new Banshee and sent one young man home with a huge smile. Well, actually, I think we sent a lot of men (young and old) home with huge smiles. We had a great time and are looking forward to this year. Michael Lee and I are in charge of this year's raffle and have another Banshee 'from Honda of North Hollywood. Thank you Billy. We are also including a custom built color matched trailer. Speaking of Billy Robertson, he is another of our very involved members, he supplied Vance Scott with the bike he rode on his "Runnin to the Wall;" ride this year. I will follow that story in next month's issue of the Dusty Times. Welcome home Yance. The club and many members helped Yance with donations toward this moving experience of life and sacrifice. We are proud to be associated with Vance Scott. Moving along I just wanted to welcome our newest club members, Reese King who we all know from his eight years of service with the C.R. B. and a fresh new racer Mike Norris. Welcome. We have several good prospectives waiting for the dreaded black ball vote, among them Rodger Byrd, Malcolm Bryce, Josh Gillian and Mike Wright (Bob's brother) to name a few. Speaking of the Wrigl,.t brothers a big thanks goes out to Bob Wright for the killer tacos at the after Baja meeting. Well, that about does it for now, don't forget that when you're a Checker you are #1. If you want to meet us, visit us or curse us, we can be reached at: (818) 790-1161 or swing by the club house on any Wednesday night at 8:00pm: 111 I Foothill Blvd., La Canada, CA 91011.

Pit Report By Sandy Parker RACE REPORTS MDR Ridgecrest 300 TEAM INCH (Class 1600) It appeared that Brad was on another mission this race and he came within a few seconds to accomplishing it. Brad started the race and drove the first half and very typical of this year, was flying the car to the top of the 1600 heap. At one point Brad was physically the overall race leader. Brad clubbed a rock and smoked a front tire which he ha<l to drive on to the next . CORE Pit. He got passed by a 1600 car while in the pits getting the tire swapped. Back on the course, he quickly again regained the class lead. On lap two, Brad saw the alternator light glaring and quickly pulled it over as soon as the he;,d temp began to rise. He: jumped out and quickly installed a new fan belt himself and was back on the track. The time off the course spent changing the belt, allowed two class cars to pass him, moving him to third place. Brad asked to have Randy Jones put in the car since Brad knew Randy's car broke on the first lap. Randy jumped in the car a few minutes down from the leader. Randy caught and passed the second place car and was making up time on the new leader. Randy finished the race just catch-ing the leader at the finish line, both getting the checkered flag at the same time. Brad and Randy missed the win by only 3. few seconds, GREAT RACE GUYS!!!! TEAM 3G (Class 1600) The Third Generation Team got the car ready to run an MDR race this time. The alternating drivers scheduled to drive this race were Timmy Craig driving with his school mate Travis Pressnell in the co-pilot position the first half and Davy Girdner driving with his roommate Kevin Henrikson riding. Davy and Kevin started last in class off the line and picked off a few cars before blowing a rear tire. They hobbled the car to the nearest: pit where it was quickly changed but they did manage to loose 6 July 2001 minutes· due to the flat. Back on course they made up some time and got the car up to ninth place. Timmy and Travis got the car at the half way mark and were making up some serious time and passing cars until it their time to explode a tire. Luckily they were very close to a pit and got it fixed ·in a hurry. During their run, they screamed in over the radio that they had lost third gear so they had to keep in forth, which sure helped their times. The kids were able to physically finish fifth in class but were awarded forth place on time, not a bad run consid-ering the problems they had. TEAM LINDSAY (C1ass 5-1600) This is not a typical Lindsay day of racing, looks like one of those races where everything goes wrong. Still in the MDR points chase and hoping for a good consistent finish, Tim and Jeremy Lindsay started the race third 5 -1600 off the line and quickly pulled up to the class lead. Maintaining a good lead, they· got swallowed up and spit out by a Ridgecrest hole, barrel rolling the car three or four times. The car luckily landed back on the wheels so after a quick check they both decided they were beat up but OK! Apparently there was no dam.age to the car so they started her up and were back into it. Just past the half way point, they no-ticed the rear suspension was going away so the pulled into the pits for a check up. The pits noticed the car had been badly damaged cfuring the wreck and the pan and torsion housing was cracked and in bad shape. The guys at-tempted to press on for a finish but they blew up the engine, th us ending their day. With the car almost totally destroyed, I hear they have already built a new floor pan and body and will hopefully be ready for the next race. TEAM JONES (Class 1600) This was a very short race for Randy, he smoked the motor within a few miles of the start of the race. Randy did get some race action as he was asked to drive the last half of the race for Brad Inch. CORE PIT SUPPORT CORE MAIN Darin and Victoria Grif-fin, Ken and Melody Myers, Babe and Linda Jones, and Dwane Larson were the group of people that kept the Main Pits alive. They assisted in a driver change in the Inch car and worked on the Lindsay 5-1600 when it came in for inspec-tion after their crash. CORE PIT ABLE Dr. Bob Depew with his assistants Wayne and Bob Nosala were not asked to work on CORE cars but did manage to help out several non member cars. CORE PIT BAKER The CORE Baker Pit was headed by the senior CORE racer, Mr. Jerry lawless. Jerry was looked after and kept on track by his wife Barbra, Del Lindstrom, Ronny DePinhead, and Tommy Berger. They managed to work on a few club cars and non club cars to keep them busy. CORE PIT CHARLEY Gary, Kara, and Kim hall along with Dennis and Danny Dean appeared to be the most busy CORE Pits during the race. They changed a tire for Brad and later checked a tire on Continued on page 44 PIKES service center Baker, California Celebra~ing 50 YEARS OF SERVICE TO OUR TRAVELING FRIENDS ••• THANKS!

Brads car with Randy behind the wheel. M.O.R.E. Badlands 275 TEAM WRIGHT (Class 1600) Ray Wright was the only CORE member that was able to race the May MORE race. Ray started the race and within a lap made up a minute on the competition but his run was halted by a motor problem. On lap two, Ray pulled into a pits with motor troubles, they discovered a broken push rod. The McGiver pit crew was able to fish out the broken part and slipped a part from a tire repair tool inside the . broken pieces, stuck it back in and told him to hobble it to main. While driving it back to Main, Ray said the splice was working great so he fin-ished the next three laps with no troubles. On the seventh lap, Ray got out complaining of foot pain so Bubba Wheeler took over at the controls. Bubba finished the last three laps and brought the car in for a third place finish. This is the kind of never quit kind of racer we are honored to have on our team, con-gratulations on the finish!! B.I.T.D. Terrible Town 250 TEAM McGILLIVRAY (Pro truck) The McGillivray team had a wild ride, one that they won't soon forget. Kevin McGillivray with Donny Angel riding were having a great race in their Protruck until they ap-proached a dangerous sec-tion of the course with too much speed and looped the truck. To make matters worse, they were told that some blood thirsty, scum photographer removed all of the down arrows to get his "action shots" for the day. Kevin and Donny hit the hole at 70 to 80 mph and endo 'ed the truck a few times. They wasted the right front wheel, rotor, and caliper, broke the steering, and squashed the front and rear sections of the chassis. Kevin said they hit hard on the back of the truck which reduced a 30 gallon fuel cell into only 15 gallons, without leaking. Very fortunately, neither Kevin or Donny were injured and that the truck is nearly back to-gether for the next race. Kevin wishes to thank Ron at Protruck for his assis-tance obtaining parts and Bobby Neth for the unbe-lievable chassis fabrication work. The guys crashed where several video were pointed, so I hear the crash is posted on the internet for all to see. I haven't seen it yet but hear it is ugly. Searching for a profes-sional family oriented pit support club? CORE is always happy to extend it's family and support.

Eleven entries participated in the evening competition. Lots of new faces were entered. Scott Clark and his daughter, Tamara, shared their Q_ubaru Turbo to finish second and third in the Open class. Leon Styles took first place in Open and set fastest time but only after Tony Chavez in his Stock class VW Golf, fired the first fast shot on the first go round. Tony set a blazing time the first run and Leon had to play catch up on the second go. However, from there on it was Leon· for fast time. Julius V asari was running well in Open class until he got hung up on a berm and lost time on his third run of the night. It put him in fourth place in the Open class for the night. Tony took first in CRS Stock class over Gary English and Patrick Rodi. Don Shreyer ran fourth and Brian Baldwin was fifth. John Shults won the Group 2/5 class in his RX3. John West took second in the class. John Dillon and Sue Robinson were the timing and start crew. The course was a nice tight twisty course with lots of up and down to keep the drivers on their toes. This course will be used again for the Seed 7 Rally Sprint on June 2nd, plan on attending. The circus came to town on May 4th and 5th in Palmdale, CA. The Rim of the World ProRally and ClubRally was host to the Subaru ProDrive team's dog and pony show as well as Mitsubishi backed cars and the Hyundai team of John Buffum. Subaru showed up with multiple service trucks and tents and a motor home to support their multiple car entry. They definitely put the "Pro" in ProRally. The event had 6 7 entries, up from 50 last year. It all seemed to come off without a hitch from the driver and crew viewpoint. The new parking/service area on Friday night at the Metrolink station was great. Saturday's service in Lake Hughes was expanded to accommodate the large number of service vehicles .and there was room for all. William and Julie Yates were big winners iri the event this year. They ran their Toyota MR2 to the fastest Rookie Team award as well as great finishes in the ProRally and ClubRally. This young couple are a kick to be around with their good humor and enthusiasm. William noted at the awards: t'I want to thank my wife for not divorcing me." Julie quipped back "The papers will be filed on Monday!" A lot of drivers were co-drivers this year at the event. Paul Timmerman co-drove for Dave Coleman in the Datsun 510. When their car broke down on the course Friday night, they team Mooned the teams that passed them. Someone commented that they both needed a tan. Doug Robinson co-drove for Tony Chavez. They took first in P ruRall y Production and a first and second in CRS Stock for the weekend.

motion sickness got the best of him and Bradney Bali stepped in on Saturday. Chris ran a great rally despite the co-driver difficulties. Chris was first in CRS Stock on Saturday. Have you been sand bagging us all this time, Chris? Chris Aker and Peter "Wrong Way" Morris had a good run on Friday, however, Pete woke up on the wrong side of the route book on Saturday and navigated them back to Friday's stages on Saturday. They were allowed to fun run when they finally realized their error and caught up with the rally. Ricky De La Cuesta came out in a new car this year. We haven't seen Ricky for a while and he ran a good rally on Saturday with ·minor difficulties on Friday. Doug Whited finally finished his red VW GTI and ran a consistent first rally finishing both days. He has done a great job preparing this car for . rallying. Unfortunately this means the Gibeaults have lost their pit crew now that he is out driving. Richard Byford and Fran Olson were having a good rally until their engine went away. Richard was setting some good times in his vintage BMW 2002. Bummer! Leon Styles and Larry Scott debuted their new to them Mitsubishi Galant. Leon is getting the h ang of f~ur wheei drive and is starting to pick up the pace. Unfortunately, he lost his turbo on Saturday, but still managed to finish the rally. George Plsek and Alex Gelsomino put together a nice rally and finished first in the Friday ClubRally as well as 15th overall in the ProRally. Jay Streets was having a great run until the Rim roads hit him and he flopped his car. Amazingly he got it upright and drove it into service. Page 46 Everyone pitched in and got his Toyota repaired enough to continue for a finish. Terry Stonecipher and Jeff Bruett brought out their much awaited Toyota Pickup. We have missed them running with us. They finished both days of the rally. Justin Benham got a ride in a Plymouth Arrow with John Rippel in the co-driver seat. Vartan Samulien finally returned to our ranks driving his new Ford Focus. He had a new co-driver, Charles Aoun, who has rallied in the Middle East but never on dirt roads and certainly never like the Rim roads. He was definitely impressed. Patrick Rodi and his new co-driver, Jonathan Schiller, finished Friday and DNF'd on Saturday. Keith Wheeler and Ken Lazarus had alternator problems in the MGB GT and then something else got them on Saturday. Don Shreyer and Ken Tooker finished in the Mazda RX7 as did Sean Otto and Jason Lane in the Mazda GLC. Josh Jacqot and Ola Lysenstoen brought out a new Ford Focus and had teething problems all weekend. Hopefully they will have the kinks worked out of it for Gorman. It is fun to see families out to run together. Scott Clark and his daughter Tamara ran their Subaru and finished on Saturday. Brian Hudson and Ian Hudson ran together on Friday. The Peterson brothers, Mark and Scott, finished Friday night but had problems on Saturday and did not finish. Bruce Brown and Bob Moe had a great run in their Subaru Impreza and finished both days in the Pro and ClubRallies. By the way, Bruce's wife, Pat, is recovering from her stem cell transplant and doing well at home now. Lauchlin O'Sullivan and John Dillon had alternator troubles again. The same thing got them at Oregon Trails. Lon Peterson and Bill Gutzman failed to finish due to radiator problems -i.e., no water in the cooling system. Congratulations to everyone who rallied and finished. Better luck next time to those who were not so fortunate. See you all at Gorman in August! FIRST ASSOCIATION OF INDEPENDENT RACERS By Wes Wisdom Just finished watching the Indy 500 on TV. It was a pretty good race. Robby Gordon has picked up the "Andretti Bad Luck" virus. He was doing well until a pit stop problem put him down and he was never quite able to get back up with the leaders again. Finally an engine failure put him out right at the end. With the poor showing of the IRL drivers again this year, Tony George better re-evaluate what he wants for Indy. F.A.I.R.'s "Fun in the Desert" outing and the M.O.R.E. race in Luc rne Valley took place on the same weekend. There were two F.A.I.R. racers, Greg Blakeman and Harry Dunne, plus Jim Fay, who was pitting for a friend, at the M.O.R.E. race and it was a lot of fun! Met some nice people, too. A navy jet fighter pilot was there, down from Fresno, in his very first race. What a difference in rides, going from a jet fighter flying at the Mach Plus speeds into a flying Class 9 ! ! He said he had a super time and can't wait to do it again. Jim Clements set up an interesting and fast 20+ mile loop. Its great to be able to see your cars every 25-30 minutes and only need one main pit for support. Makes it a lot easier to race. And his paybacks are good, too, especially the "fast lap" money. For something different, Jim has decided to use this exact same course for future races and to have "Course Speed Records" for each class. He takes the best two laps and adds them together to set each record and then gives a plaque to the driver. Kinda neat for bragging rights. Harry Dunne and George Ladwig teamed up in George's Class 9 car to run Sportsman. Harry has the points lead and wants to keep it. They had a better than good day with no problems, Harry starting and George bringing it home, and won the class. Greg Blakeman had the best race of the day even though, three miles into the race, a torsion adjuster finger shattered. His crew got to him quickly and repaired the problem but he lost about 45 minutes. Greg got back into the race and started to make up time. When Scott Wisdom took over the driving chores at the halfway point, they were in third place less than 30 minutes behind the leader. Then the lead car went out. At that point they were in second only 20 minutes back with four laps remaining and Scott was really flying. The new leader then had a long eighth lap with several flat tires but Greg's car also had trouble with a spark plug wire faiiing off Stii1 the gap had closed to about eight minutes for the last lap. . Scott turned the fastest lap of the day on that last lap but it wasn't quite enough. They lost First in class and First Overall by exactly one minute. It was a gallant effort, at least they set the class "Speed Record", and made it a fun race for everybody. The "Fun in the Desert" on the same weekend was at the Rock Pile off Bessemer Mine Road. What a nice place to camp out for a weekend. The rocks make for a nice setting. Anyway, everybody had a good time. Paul Duffy came out Sunday to set up the preliminary course for the Kar Tek 400 so we were able to get an idea of what to expect for that race. All in all, with the M.O.R.E. race on Saturday and the great camaraderie at the "Fun in the Desert", it was a very good weekend! For_ all of you racers, pitters, chasers, fans, why not come to one of our meetings sometime? You'll be glad you did!
