' Trail Notes ... _ B IKES AND CARS -We received a lovely present from Jeff Cepielik, the Vice Pre.sid~nt at Toy Zone. A great looking Class I car and a just as good looking motorcycle, just what everyone need to dress up their desk at the office or at home. The models are bedecked with SCORE stickers under an agreement between the two companies and they are complete with working suspension, front and rear and are about as realis-tic as they can be. Look for -them in Wal-Mart or your favorite toy store under the "Toy· Zone" emblem or give Toy Zone a call at 323-881-8928 for your nearest dealer. A RE You SITTING DowN? -Mastercraft and Taylor Made Seats are back together again, after 30 years. Robbie Pierce of Mastercraft and John Tiedemann of Taylor Made announced the signing of an-agreement by which Mastercraft will manufacture, market and distribute the Taylor Made suspension seat. "We are very proud to add 'the Taylor Made seat to our line of race seats. It has a unique style and feel that the veteran drivers have appreciated for years" Robbie stated. "It's great that the Taylor Made name and reputation will carry on, back where it all started", said John. 0 JlBWE FORESTS RALLY -Mark Higgins had a few problems late in the rally but he still managed to pull off his first win on the SCCA ProRally Series. Mark, and his trusty Hyundai, along with co-rider Claire Mole won the contest with over a minute in hand. David Higgins and Daniel Barritt were second in Open, driving a Subaru Iinpreza. Lauchlin O'Sullivan took the Group 2 win in his Mitsubishi Lancer RMR and that gave him the Drivers and Manufacturers title for 2002. Seamus Burke and Rpry Kennedy took the Group N win at Ojibwe, their Subaru lmpreza just edging out the Subaru lmpreza of Tim O'Neal and Martin Headland by 3 2 seconds. Bob Olson and Conrad Ketelsen were the Group 5 winners in their Porsche 911. David and Rick Hintz were second in Group Sin their Mazda RX-7 Turbo. The Production GT division went to Bob Henderson and John McArthur in their Subaru lmpreza WRX, Valdenaras Maciukevicius was second in POT in his Subaru Impreza. Mike Halley and David Weiman took the Production win in their new VW Beetle, Jaime Thomas an·d Tina Lengacher took the runner up spot in their Subaru Impreza. Next on the SCCA ProRally series is the Wild West in Olympia, Washington, September 7 and 8. S CORE 2003 SCHEDULE -Thank you SCORE for your early release of next years schedule. It certainly helps Dusty Times with some of our scheduling. The SCORE Desert Series will be split, three races in Nevada and th.ree in Mexico. As usual, the season ieads off with the Laughiin Desert Challenge, January 16-19, 2003.

BITD TONOPAH 300 Weyhrichs Take The overall B:, Jud:, Smith Photos: Trackside Photo Steve Strobel soloed the trip in his Class 10 Bunderson, and at the end of the 285 miles was not only the Class 10 winner, but second in the overall standings. The team of Mark and Gary Weyhrich went into the lead early in their Chevy Y8 powered Jimco, and then stayed right there, to take not only the Class 1500 win, but the over-all honors also, at the Best In The Desert Tonopah 300 in August. The course was a 285-mile loop that ran almost entirely north of Tonopah, clear up to Gabbs, and utilized some roads not raced since the early days of the HORA Vegas to Reno events. There were, as always, lots of rocks. Racers commented es-pecially about big rocks lining the side of the course waiting to grab sidewalls if the car moved over. There was a big bed of blow sand; there were wilt beds, some fast roads and plenty of cross grain. The dust was a big factor and the breeze wasn't always stiff enough to clear it away. Gary Weyhrich took the first half of the day, and he had the car in the lead by the time he reached the first checkpoint, at 72 miles along the road. He had only a minute on Sam Berri in his newly Y4 powered Mi-rage, and Tim Scalzo in Casey Jones; Y8 powered Aceco, who were tied. Then it was eight minutes back to Todd Jergensen, in a Smith Built, with V8 Cadillac power. This was the first time out for the Caddy, and it was overheating. Weyhrich had a flat trying to pass another vehicle in the dust, but oth-erwise had no -problems, and at Check B, Mile 141, he had upped his lead to two minutes. ltwas still Berri to second place, and he was liking his new, bigger motor, but he'd been with- . out power steering since going by Check 1.

At Mile 216, Check C, Mark Weyhrich had taken over thee driv-ing, and he still had only a minute on Berri who was still having power steer-ing trouble. Mark was making plans for getting a more powerful motor for his car, feeling that the current one "ran out of power" occasionally. Jergensen had fallen back to about a half hour behind Berri, and Jones and Scalzo had lost another 10 min-utes. Late in the day Berri, who drove all the way, was tired and his power steering was still not working. Weyh-rich brothers took the win by 23 min-utes. They had the overall victory by nine minutes also. Berri was second, and Jergensen finished a half hour behind him. In fourth it was Jones, and Scalzo, disappointed about their fuel pickup problem, but happy to be at the finish line., The Trophy Trucks had gone off the line first, and it was Darnen Jef-feries first on the road. Normally, this would be a sign of trouble for every-one else, but at this event he wasn't driving his own Ford Trophy Truck It had been prepped for the upcom-ing Baja 1000 and sat snugly at home, while Darnen went racing in Rick L. Johnson's Toyota powered Protruck So not only was it not his own ve-hicle, 'it was significantly underpow-ered for the class, propelled as it was by a crate motor. He gave it a good shot, but it was Dave Westhem in his Class 8000 Chevy turned Trophy Truck, in front at the first check, with four minutes in Jefferies. Chuck Har-ris, driving Gary Vosburg's Ford Pro truck turned Trophy Truck (it has a bigger motor than Protruckallows), ran third, only three minutes later, and then came Kyle Taylor in his new Ford. That's right-Taylor, who's been racing a Chevy for years, h~d his Ford · Trophy Truck out for its first ride. Jefferies moved .into the lead by Mile 141 (Check B) but he had only three minutes on Harris, who was now starting to feel at ease in the un-familiar truck. Taylor was third only anotjler four minutes back, and West-hem had been run into by a huge rock, which took out the driveline, October 2002 Marc Stein and Mike McComas drove their Ford Expedition to· first in Class 4100, taking the win by over an hour.

He had to stop at Pit 3, near Gabbs, for extensive re-pairs. When he got out of the truck, co-driver Randy Salmont took over, now 40 minutes down to the leader. Harris went into the lead in the next section, his only problem hav-ing been easily solved. His spare tires fell off, and he'd had to stop for a new supply. At Mile 216 he had two minutes on Taylor who was having no "new car trouble", but was find-ing it really dusty. He'd also had a couple of flats, one of which bent the rim into the caliper, and was hard _ to remove. Jefferies was nursing a "hurt" motor, in third, and Salmont was running well, still about 40 min-utes back. Harris had six full minutes by Mile 256, but Taylor kept pushing and at the finish time had narrowed it down to four minutes. Who knows what it might have been if Taylor hadn't flat-tened a rear tire. He drove the final Shawn Wanzek had a terrific day in his Ford. He didn't even flatten finy tires, led all the way, and took the Class 7200 win. John Baker did all the driving in Mike Warren's Ford, to take the win in Class 7100 in spite of some steering problems. Dusty Times

At the first road crossing, about four miles into the race, Rob Reinertson surprised the bystanders by showing up in reverse gear. He'd lost all forward gears and was trying to get to a place where he could get some help (BITD rules don't allow racers to stop just anywhere and holler for a chase crew)-but he was a long way from the first official pit area. He pulled over to let healthier traffic by and his truck "just sank" in the soft sand, losing even more time. Then he learned that he could be towed to a pit, repaired, and then return to where he'd left the course to continue the race. So he got a tow to the pit, changed the transmission, and then discovered they had the wrong torque converter.

Foutz was running clean, with no problems at all, and at Check D he had nine minutes on Hall. He had a couple of flats during the day, and hadn't yet completely solved the over-heating problems that plagued him at the Nevada 1000, but in general had no complaints. Esquerra was moving fine now, but had lost more time than he could make up. Foutz took the win, and Hall finished second, with Esq-uerra nearly an hour down in third. He'd stopped very late in the race to help another competitor get back on his wheels after a roll over. Only one 1600 car came for this race, the Mirage of Joe Hamner and Kevin Graves. They shared the driving and had no problems, except that Hamner set the car up on its side for a while. They got their finish, and win, and were 21st in the overall standings. The 7100 (like SCORE 7S) cars were next, with six entries. At about Mile 10 the Malcolm Vinje/Jim Gil-christ Ford went out when· the tensioner froze up and it slipped a tim-ing chain. Malcolm said that's the first time that particular thing ever gave him trouble. Mike Parsons, in a good looking Toyota, got to Mile 26, and then radioed that he was out. He was later seen on the side of Highway 95, earnestly explaining something to a Nevada Highway Patrolman. There were then only four trucks still mov-ing. John Baker had Mike Warren's Ford in front at Mile 72, and Mike Koenig ran second in his Toyota, 16 minutes behind him. He'd been stuck. in the blow sand, and had flattened a tire getting out. In third, another 40 minutes down, it was Tim Braden and Mitch Griffm in another Ford. They'd also been stuck in the blow sand. And Kevin Davis, who's had nothing but bad luck lately, was nearly two hours down in his Ford already. He'd got stuck in the blow sand when he' cl flat-tened a tire, and therefore got to Pit 1 (at about Mile 50) after its official clos-ing time. But the BITD officials had decided to give the various racers who'd been stuck a-break, and they extended the closing time at Pit 1 from noon to 1:30, or possibly even later. Then, quite obviously, they' cl had to leave Pit 2 open a bit longer also, so they moved its closing time to 2: 15. Some of the stuck drivers had dam-aged their vehicles trying to get unstuck, and thus spent time in Pit 1 making repairs, so it became a real struggle to get to Pit 2, at about Mile 102, in time. Baker led through Check E, and he had 12 minutes on Koenig, and his co-driver, Troy Robinson, who was making up time. In third itwas Braden and Griffin, about 50 minutes later. Davis was another hour and a half down. At Check C it was still Baker in front, but he started to have power Dusty Times

After a few futile tries, a helpful racer in a Class 8000 truck pulled them off and got them moving again. The truck ran, but the steering was messed up and many turns were three-pointers as they headed for the finish. They were still second at Check C, but now 25 minutes back. Braden and Griffin were nearly two hours behind them in third, and Davis was fourth, another half hour back. Baker's power steering problems led him astray, and he flattened a tire, but held on to his lead through Check D (Mile 256). Koenig and Robinson had fallen out, stopped by a broken brace that wore a hole in the bottom of their radiator and let all the water out. There was no time left to make repairs and still make the checkpoints. Now Braden and Griffin were second, two and a half hours down. Davis was third, only 11 minutes behind them. And at the finish it was the same order, with Baker taking the victory in the Warren truck. Braden and Griffin were a distant second, and Davis finished just eight minutes be-hind them in third place. It had been a tough day for most of this class. Five Class 4100 cars (big SUVs) started next. Jeremy Spirkoff was driv-ing Scott Douglas' Bronco because Douglas had a ra,ce in Crandon, Wis-consin that he needed to drive. The day before the race Spirkoff discov-ered that the ignition on the Bronco wasn't quite legal for the class, and it was suggested that he change it. Sure. He would be happy to do it. But, as it happened, none of the parts stores in town (two of them) had the correct distributor in stock. They were kind enough to call around to stores in other nearby towns (!), but none of them had it either. So then they tried the local salvage yards and found none. Then a friendly local took Spirkoffs wife, Nancy, around town checking under the hoods of parked cars. They finally foun d an old car with a new distributor sort of stuffed into it (but not bolted in place). But the owner wasn't home. The local thought he knew who the owner was, and tracked him down in a grocery store. He took him back to show him what they needed, and discovered it wasn't his car after all. That guy knew the owner, however, and they finally persuaded him that his friend wouldn't mind accepting a super race ignition set up to exchange for the stock distributor. All that was left to do was get it installed in the race truck. At Mile 72 Spirkoff had the lead, so it seemed that the effort had not been wasted.

His crew was trying to repair his Ford in time to let him go on, but he'd already lost two hours and ran out of time in between the first Check and the second Check. That left only Aaron Dixon run-ning. He'd been stuck also, but he lowered the air pressure down to about Spsi, used his hi-life jack, bor-rowed a rolled up grate, got some friendly folk to push, and after an hour and a half, had his Ford out of the blow sand. But then he had to run about 25 miles on those al-111ost flat tires. That was a wild ride. Once there, and still well within the closing times, he got new tires and went on. All went well until he got near Gabbs, where he hit a triple ditch way too fast, flew, hit again, and bounced sideways off the trail. He expected to roll over, but landed on all fours, and the truck was still driveable. After that he decided it might be smart to back out of it a bit, and they headed for the finish. Dixon made it in plenty of time to take the victory, his first win, in a time of 8:29: 19. Tne small SUVs were the last group to sta.rt, with three entries. An-thony Napoleon had his Bronco II in the lead at Check A, with just two minutes on the other two trucks. Mike Falkosi<y's Explorer, and David Turner's Ford, which were tied. But then Napoleon didn't get to the sec-ond check, and at about 2:20p.m. word came via radio that he was out of the race. Turner had the lead at Check B, but with only a minute on Falkosky, he needed to keep pressing. At Check C the tables were turned, and Falkosky had nine minutes on Turner. He was having no problems at all. At Check D it was still close, and still Falkosky in front. But then word came that Turner had broken his steering box and rolled the truck. Falkosky sailed on to the finish in good shape, reporting a clean drive. Turner got help from Esquerra to get back on his wheels, and some-one brought him a new steering box, and he finished second, about three hours and 15 minutes after Falko-sky came in.

52ND NESTE RALLY FINLAND Peugeot Picks A Winner By Martin Holmes Photos : Maurice Selden Flying straight and level, Marcus Granholm and Timo Rautiainen head for a well deserved win in their Peugeot 206. Peugeot dominated the Neste Rally Finland, leading from start to finish, scoring their fifth 1-2 re-sult of the season. Gronholm was headed in the early stages by his teammates, first by Richard Burns, who had the advantage of running fourth car on the road and also by Harri Rovanpera, but, by half dis-tance, Granholm was in front and went on to gain a hat trick win on the event. Burns lost time on the second day when a turbo hose broke and Rovanpera, after lead-ing for one stage hit a rock and had a severe tire blowout, he retired when the suspension collapsed. Ford pushed Peugeot from a dis-tance, but after Colin McRae's car was destroyed by fire on the final morning, the first non-Peugeot at the finish line was the Subaru of Petter Solberg. Only one Finnish driver finished in the top five, sixth was Tommi Makinen. Alex Fiorio won the Production Car WRC cat-egory ahead of Kristian Sohlberg while Karamajit Singh consolidated his series lead by finishing third. All finishers in the Group N drove Mitsubishi derived cars. This was the ninth round of the 2002 WRC and this year the event counted for the Production Car World Rally Championship, in-stead of the Super 1600 series, be-ing the sixth out of eight PCWRC events and the last qualifying round in Europe. Apart from the average speeds of the Safari and the Neste Rally, there could hardly be greater difference between the two succes-sive gravel rallies. In Finland, the tracks are generally very smooth and cars fly through the sir due to the natural undulations of the roads, not because of pot holes. Still, no World rally this year has attracted a full compliment of 90 entries: this time 84 entries were received, of whom 77 started. Among the 6-~CE · · ur Ave. · 60005 \, Page 18 October 2002 Alex Fiorio and Vittorio Brambilla were the big winners in PCWRC, 1 B'h overall as well in their good looking Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. entries were only three two wheel drive cars, all Super 1600, includ-ing Juha Kangas with his JWRC Suzuki lights, testing new closer gear-box ratios. Two drivers were up for hat tricks: Granholm has won the last two Neste Rally Finland, Colin McRae the last two world champi-onship events. At a Special Stage average speed of 119.99 kph, this was the fastest event in the champi-onship last year. It's been 10 years since the last non-Finn won this event, and this expectation of a home success continued to make this a highly popular event for en-thusiasts. A recent survey stated that 11 % of the population of. Finland was expected to watch the event. There was a major effort to maxi-mize the centralization of the event. All of the main functions (start, rest halts, service parks and finish) were in the same location. The event date had been moved to earlier in the month, not since 1972-74 had the event been run so early in the year. The FIA World Championship Rally Commission was meeting in Jyvaskyla, Finland to consider the implications of a possible return to mixed surfaced world cham.pionship rallying and the practicalities of pos-sible calendar changes for 2003. Pleased that the rough events on the calendar were now behind them, Peugeot arrived with hopes they could arrest Ford's steady re-cent erosion of their championship lead. Gronholm's car was fitted with the controlled anti-rollbar sys-tem, the first time the system had been used on summertime gravel. Ford concentrated on lightening the various parts of their cars to opti-mize weight distribution. There were surprisingly few Subarus on the entry list, only two Works WRC cars and four private Group N en-tries. Both Skoda and Mitsubishi launched their 2002 evolution ver-sions. Skoda had reduced their operation to two team cars, Eriks-son and Gardemeister the drivers. Their new car featured revised front suspension with a lower mounted engine, with considerably revised under hood installation, though their traditional electro-magnetic central transmission sys-tem was retained. For Hyundai, this was one year after Kankkunen first drove for them and their determi-nation to improve was evident. Cit-roen were continuing their learn-ing process. After being the sole category fin-isher on the Safari, Singh had be-come the name on the lips of the Production Car contenders. Only he had scored on every event he entered. Apart from Singh's Pro-ton, every entry in the category was a Mitsubishi. Of all the rallies in the World Championship, Finland's event stands highest in the world as a showpiece of the talents of the na-tional rally drivers. It is also a rally for budding drivers from across the world, not i1ecessarily to show their skills but to gain experience on the world's most driving intensive rally. See, on this event in Group Nin a non-championsbjp capacity were regular Super 1600 drivers Daniel Carlsson, Daniel Sola and Brice Tirabassi. Another unique feature of the event were the two unofficial and national "Test" rallies. Thomas Radstrom won the first, The Mantra Rally, ahead ofTuohino's Focus. Pykalistos led until it suffered an oil leak. The second, The Exide Rally, based at Tampere, was won by Sebastian Lindholm and saw the dramatic retirement of Pykalisto when he crashed his Toyota and it was destroyed by fire. A pleasant surprise was the entry of the 1985 World Champion Timo Salonen in a Peugeot 206. Peugeot had a double pre-rally shock. Panizzi, due to drive a works assisted car had to withdraw, due to a broken collar bone, suffered when he fell from a ladder at his lmrnk b\j,m..5 tRiiis tch~ iwmlld Il!ISTT\ Petter Solberg and Philip Mills get nicely airborne in their Subaru lmpreza, they were :Jd overall in Finland.

Salonen had to resched-ule his testing to the morning of the start, after the team missed the ferry and were late in arriving. Leg 1 - Ten stages, gravel, 130 kms. There was a very short Super-special on the Thursday evening where Richard Burns pulled out a remarkable lead of almost a second in front of teammate Marcus Gron-holm and Subaru driver Petter Solberg. Gronholm led after the first two proper stages but Richard Burns regained the lead on the third stage. Two of the three Hyundais (Kankkunen and Schwarz) were suffering engine mis-fires, later discovered to have been due to a faulty batch of spark plugs. Makinen said his Subaru's engine was not producing its usual power and Sainz and Martin said they were unhappy with the handHng of their Fords. Martin locked the cen-tral transmission and it seemed to go better. The Mitsubishi drivers felt the new cars wer.e going better. Of the Skodas, Gardemeister had no troubles but Eriksson had hydrau-lic pressure problems, which af-fected the differentials. Early retire-ments were Armin Kremer, stuck in sixth gear and Urmo Aava, who · went off the road, both in Focus'. Kuchar retired off the road as well and Valimaki hit a wall and dam-aged the right side of his car. Gronholm took the next two stages with care and dropped a little but Peugeot continued to hold the top four places. Then news came that Pykalisto was out when the main shaft from the engine to the gearbox broke. Burns lead after the first seven stages was 7.2 seconds. Many drivers had punctures and some were having mousse troubles. Makinen had some smoke in the cockpit, his engine still down on power. Martin had his gearbox changed and was going better. Alis-ter McRae broke a rear shock after a very hard landing. Gardemeister also lost his differential pressure. Schwarz' s engine was stalling under braking and both Passonen and Tuohino were having brake troubles. Skoda lost Eriksson when his engine began misfiring. At the end of Stage 6 he had a small fire, the cause was determined to be a fuel injector stuck open and tre-mendous amounts of fuel were be-ing pumped into the engine. Shortly before Service the car stopped, out of fuel. "There should have been five gallons to spare at this point," said Eriksson. Salonen was enjoying himself, "When I drove a Mitsubishi Lancer Group N, I soon realized that today's rally cars are designed for left foot brakers, which I have never been."

MOJAVE DESERT RACING, INC. California 200 By Sheryl Cannon Photos: Trackside Photo Whit Courtenay and Bruce Fraley combined their talents and ran through the night to a great 1st in Class 10, 4th overall. fhe Class 5 battle went to John Criswell. He won by less than a minute and John was second overall as well at Lucerne. Perhaps nothing can stop Ri-chard Boyle, MDR's white-hot points leader who has yet to taste defeat this season. One thing is certain; racing at night didn't stop him. On August 10, 2002, Boyle bested a stellar field of 87 starters to take this year's "California 200" and post his fourth straight overall victory. Securfng win number 4 was no easy task, because this time Boyle found himself un-able to put away the field. A trio of competitors pressured R.B. all the way to the finish, but the resilient Class 100 win-ner gamely withstood the chal-lenge. Despite some motor problems and briefly getting lost, Boyle's 3:58:31 clocking (54.1 mph) gave him a 7:59 margin of victory over C la ss 800 winner Eric He ide n . The race's overall third and fourth place finishers, John Criswell and George Seeley, also came close to ending Boyle's win streak. Criswell, the Class 500 winner, wound up finishing 14 seconds behind Heiden and 52 seconds ahead of Seeley. Apparently, judging by the The Class 1 win at the MOR Galifomia 200 went to Richard Boyle, he was first overall, seen here at speed. Nicholas Beall was fast, he did his 3 required laps in 3:12:16 and won his class handily, a1most an hour and a half in hand. number of finishers, partici-pants in MDR's lone night race didn't mind swapping visibility for cooler temperatures. Ex-actly t'o/O thirds (58) of those who started successfully made their way through the darkened desert to the checkered flag. Neither dust, nor silt, nor rocks, nor gloom of night could sto p these exhibitionists of speed from the swift completion of their ass igned laps. Now, for all the glorious and goriest de-tails, it's on to race recap time. Class lOO's Daniel Fresh led the parade of vehicles to the starting line and, as fate would have it, the 30-second head start he received was the only time Richard Boyle did not hold the lead on track. For nearly every class, Lap 1 proved the only loop run entirely dur-ing day.light hours. As a result of that fact, divisional fast lap times were posted on Lap I in Classes 100, 500, 5 50, 700, 800, 900, 1000 and 1600. Not surprisingly, Boyle recorded the best lap ofrhe entire day/night. His ultra-swift 41:44 opening loop clinched Class 100 fast lap honors. Richard Lesher was nearly as impressive, as he sped to Class 1000 fast lap time in 42:04. Craig Ayers posted the race's only other sub-43 minute Dennis Boyle took a nice third in Class 1 o, the last two laps being Billy Bunch was a wee bit off the winning time at the Lucerne race, he Greg Crew was third in Class 1300, just a minute and 12 seconds rather slow in the dark of ni ht, but still a good finish. was third in class, 9 minutes off the pace. away from the silver medal, seen here at full throttle.

Tim Criswell took fast lap honors in Class 500 (44:34), Jeffrey Sack did likewise in 550 (57:09) and Eric Heiden posted the quickest lap (46:11) in Class 800. Elsewhere, Travis Fletcher had the best lap (48:43) in Class 1600 and fast lap honors in Classes 900 and 700 were claimed by Dan Folts (54:56) and Jeff Richardson (55:39) respectively. On the front end, Boyle had assumed is customary position as pacesetter, but Lesher, Ay-ers and Tim Criswell were all hot on his heels. On the ensu-ing laps, Boyle tried in vain to shake loose from his main ri-vals. After two laps, Boyle led Lesher by just over a minute, Dan Folts made it look easy in Class 9, he ran trouble free and took the gold with over an hour in hand. Eric Heiden was flying at Lucerne, he took the Class 8 win with over an hour and a half to spare, seen here at speed. with Criswell and Ayers two and three minutes back respectively. . On Lap 3, Lesher suffered a flat and a broken A-arm, which cost him 30 minutes in• down-time. Still, there· would be no breather for Boyle, as Criswell quickly moved into second and set his sights on the leader. George Seeley and Eric Heiden were also looming dangerous, with that pair racing a joint third about six minutes off the pace. As the field entered Lap 4, Boyle held a seven minute lead over classmate Bill Winger, but he had his hands full with John Criswell, who was less than a minute behind. Boyle fought back gamely during Lap 4, re-pelling the challenges of his ri-vals. When he arrived back at the Start/Finish line, Boyle w·as given the white flag and set out on his final 40 mile loop.

Grittit-h a1so completed the or-der of top 20 overall finishers with a time of 5:14:29 (41.0 mph). It was a good day/night for entrants competing in Class 550. A field of five took part, including the aforementioned Jeffrey Sack. Sack led from flag to flag, parlaying his class best opening lap into an insur-mountable lead. "We had a great time, and the last lap we just cruised because we were way ahead," said Sack. Offi-cially; Sack's winning margin was 12 minutes 10 seconds and his 5:04:44 (42.3 mph) clock-ing ranked 16th ove~all. Stev·e Johnson, with an assist from Jeff Dernier, earned Class 550 runner-up honors. Mark Dee overcame much adversity to record a solid third place per-formance . "I'd like to dedicate this race to my dad, Jim, who died two d0ays ago," said Dee. Joey Hoerr followed Dee in fourth and Kurt Puhl wound up fifth. A match race appeared on tap in Class 700, where the lone entrants were Jeff Richard-son and Steve Lucena. Perhaps a mismatch race more accu-rately describes what ensued.

Classes 1100, 1200, 1300, 1 450 and the JeepSpeed (1700) contingent each received three lap assign-ments. Steven Jones, the lone entrant competing in Class 1400, was asked to complete a total of four laps. It took Jones and teammate Tom Bolha 4:44: 11 (36.3 mph) to· com-plete their uncontested victory romp. The duo's lap times im-proved with each loop. Bolha, who drove the final two, regis-tered the pair's best time (1:02:53) on Lap 4. In Class 1100, a field of three participated. Lap 1 proved an exercise in contrast, as it contained elements of the good, the bad and the ugly. Despite getting caught up in a nasty bottleneck and his points dying, Dennis Sletten's initial loop went pretty good. There would be no second lap for Shuss, nor for his classmate Thomas Pittman, who exited prior to arriving back at the Start/Finish line. With his· competition out of the run-ning, Sletten cruised to the 1100 win in 4:21:56 (26.5 mph). His final loop, which took 1:19:55, also gave Sletten his division's fast lap time. Af-ter completing his victory run, Sletten addressed rumors circu-lating about his alleged depar-ture from Class 1100. "We're going to J eepSpeed next year," he said. "One more race on this beast, then we're going to try the Jeep." Another trio squared off in Class 1200. Nicholas Beall proved too hot to handle, win-ning by more than one hour and 23 minutes over runner-up Bob Miller.

Ten competitors saw action in Class 1450. Wes Huston proved much the best, racing to a strong, 25+ minute win over Michael Licari and Mark Growe. In addition to placing first (2:58:28, 43.4 mph) Huston also emerged with 1450 fast lap honors (58:33). Licari and Growe seemed to take turns leading each other throughout the contest. At the finish, Licari (with an 'assist from Brad Kipp) got the nod by a mere 11 seconds to claim 1450 runner-up honors. Growe settled for third and the entry of Craig Pearson and Mike Homer, who checked-in 40 sec-onds later, took fourth . Amaz-ingly, it was just 15 seconds fur-ther back to Larry Hasbrouck, who, along with Nathan Strong and Ryan Hasbrouck, finished fifth. Dana Dague (6th), Carolyn Hines (7th) and Jason La Fortune (8th) completed the order of Class 1450 finishers. As has become customary, there was a well represented field in the JeepSpeed class. Eleven faced the starter, led py Charlie Peltzer. Despite posting lap times of 59:37, 59:36 and 59: 13, Peltzer came away sec-ond best. The reason was Barrie Thompson stole the show, the win (2:55:35) and even Class 1700 fast lap hon-ors (58: 19). Thompson aver-aged 44. 1 mph and used their three sub-59 minute loops (58:27 & 58:49 were the oth-ers ) to defeat Peltzer by two minutes 51 seconds. Billy Bunch finished strongly to place third, followed closely by Casey Currie in fourth. Eric Hilgison and Jared Prindle wound up fifth and sixth respectively. Mike Barnett (7th) and Bill Frey (8th) completed the order of 1700 finishers. The remain-ing three JeepSpeed starters deserve recognition for com-pleting all but their final loop. That trio consisted of Steve Thomasson, Ricardo Ramirez :rnd Bryan Rogers. That concludes our recap of MDR's 2002 "California 200". At press time, only two races remain on this year's schedule.

CORR AT CRANDON Taylor Takes The Treasury By John Calvin Photos: Tracks ide Photo Scott Taylor took his Ford to a 4th and a 2'd in the two rounds. He took the Pro-2 title for the 4th consecutive time. Scott Taylor took his fourth consecutive Pro-2 championship and he also collected the big bucks when he won he Borg Warner World Champion-ship Manufacturers Chal-lenge. It was the first time that a two wheel drive truck took the win at the Borg Warner race and Scott and his Ford truck worked hard for the honor. It should be noted Page 40 here that Taylor won the Governor's Cup at Cran-don back in June and that was the first time ever that a two wheel drive vehicle won that event. In the Pro-2 category the points battle was be-tween Taylor and Evan Evans. As usual, Taylor jumped in to an early lead in both heats but he was penalized in the first round, as was Evans and in the second round it was nip and tuck near the end but Taylor took a sec-ond place finish and, coupled with a fourth in the first round he took the Pro-2 title with an 11 point margin. Evans posted a pair of fifth place finishes and that relegated him to second in points for the 2002 season. Carl Renezeder let the October 2002 Johnny Greaves drove his Toyota to the Pro-4 championship, recording :Jd and '4th place finishes at the Crandon meet. The Pro-Lite championship title went to Jeff Kincaid, he won both rounds in his Toyota and won by 20 points. points leaders fight it o·ut between themselves in both heats and he took the coveted first place honors in both rounds, a very nice finish to a so1ne-ti mes frustrating season for him. Dan Vand.en Heu-vel didn't have the best of seasons and certainly not the best last couple of races of the season. With a tenth and a third place finish to show for the weekend, Dan ended a winless season and will be working just that much harder in preparation for next year. Kevin Probst p~t together a not too wonderful pair of ninth place finishes to cap his somewhat disappointing season. R.J. Flanagan managed a second and a fourth and a sixth place Tommy Bradley 'swept the Sportsman 2 category for the second time, winning both rounds in his Chevy pickup. Another two time winner, Mark Kleiman took a win in the first round and took his . second Stock Class championship. Dusty Times

The Heavy Metal drivers decided to run the qualifying round as time trials for safety rea-sons because of the heavy dust. This meant that each vehicle would run one at a time, with the fastest time for three laps becom-ing the winner. Even though it was only one vehicle on the track at a time, there was still some break-age.

I ,,,r1tJ' ,,. By Cli" Skilton RACE REPORT AUGUST 10TH MOJAVE DESERT RACING CALIFORNIA 200 LUCERNE VALLEY The fourth round of 2002 American Racing J eepSpeed Challenge was held Saturday night, August 10th, in Lucerne Valley, California. The technical inspection and contingency row was held at the Lucerne Valley High School in 105 degree temperatures from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. There were 11 J eepSpeed entries in a total field of 6. We welcomed two new competitors. Jared Prindle, who towed all the way from Montana, and Ricardo Page 48 Ramirez of San Diego. Billy Frey also entered for the first time in 2002. The first car to start at 7:01 a.m. was the previous race winner Charlie Peltzer. The rest of the field followed at 15 second intervals in the following order. Bryan Rogers, Eri.c Helgison, Barrie Thompson, Ricardo Ramirez, Mike Barnett, Casey Curtiz, Jared Prindle, Bill Frey, Billy Bunch and finally Steve Thomasson at 7:04. With nearly 90 starters on a 42 mitle lap course.the· visibility was terrible due to dusty conditions, although there was_ a slight breeze, and 90 degree temperatures. The J eepSpeed radio relay desk was soon alerted of a major checkpoint problem in a silt area that was creating a panic confusion with the Mojave Desert Racing staff and· some competing teams. Some cars were getting stuck and others were unable to see the checkpoint. Also there were a few near miss problems between race cars and· support pits out in the boonies. Many cars had experiments with lights knowing ahead of time i:hat there would be a dust problem. Billy Bunch and Barrie Thompson had H.I.D. lamps mounted on the roof. Barrie and Steve Thomasson had yellow lights mounted below the bumper to see under the dust. The first car to experience problems was Billy Frey who pulled into the JeepSpeed main pit one mile from the start. All his lights and triple cooling fans were draining his battery due to a faulty alternator wire. There was not enough juice re~aining to fire his fuel injection. He went on his way after a battery change. There were numerous position changes in the first 10 miles. Barrie Thompson got.past Eric Helgison. Steve Thomasson passed a surprised Billy Bunch, Bryan Rogers and Mike Barnett got left behind as they experienced ignition and steering problems. First timer Jared Prindle kept on the bumper of Casey Currie, and turned in a great o-ne hour four minute rookie lap. Charlie Peltzer in his 4x4 battled Barrie Thompson's 2x4 all the way, but it was Barrie's silver Skyjacker car that had the 'lead by one minute starting the second lap. Barrie followed up his 58.2 minutes first lap with two more of 58.19 and 58.49 without stopping for fuel or adjustments, to take his second win this season. October 2002 The closeness of lap times of these two drivers is a testament t'a their car handling skills. _ Billy Bunch picked up the pace with a last lap of 58.3 minutes to take third place. M.D.R. called Billy in for conversation regarding ariving through's pit in the dust, but they upheld his positiop. Casey Currie and Eric Helgison, in the Currie Enterprises Jeep, both pitted in the second lap for driver change, fuel, and other adjustments causing a six minute and 10 minute delay, respectively, dropping them to fourth· and fifth positions. Montana first titner, Jared Prindle, in the Advance Framework entry, had a wonderful sixth place finish. They are a team to watch in the future in their well prepare Cherokee. The T&J entry of Mike Barrett got its steering welded in the JeepSpeed pit after a spectacular two wheel stunt on Lap 1 and got progressively faster on the last; two laps to finish seventh. Billy Frey claimed the record of three alternatives and two batteries in 126 miles to finally get it sorted, and turned in a great one minute 11 second final _lap in his Sportsman JeepSpeed Cherokee. Ricardo Ramirez made a rookie mistake of finishing his race after only two laps bv. seeing the checkered flag for the car ahead of him. Newcomers must remember that their race continues until you have covered your required laps within the time limit set. Bryan Rogers parked his A-Fab entry after frying his computer harness. The hard luck award goes to Steve Thomasson in the Rusty's 4x4 Jeep. When running in fourth position on the final lap Steve said "I thought I would kick it up a notch" only to have a front wheel come off and jam under the car when it ended up in a ditch at Mile 27. Steve and his team trailed in at 2:30 a.m. The performance level f all JeepSpeed entries continues to improve. Six en tries all had average speeds above the record set at the last race. The winner's speed being 44.1 mph at this night race. The American JeepSpeed Challenge Series is now headed by Barrie Thompson at 170 points with Casey Currie at 166, and Charlie Peltzer at 155. Charlie also leads the Howe Steering Rookie of the Year points. J eepSpeed has now turned 35 race numbers to different teams, of which 20 have raced this year so far. I I

Tony Chavez did eventually get his Galant to start at Stage 6 and finished seventh in class despite 24 minutes of late penalties. Perhaps the most unfortunate event of the weekend was poor Brad Boli rolling his car before ir"ever got to the rally. It came unhooked from the trailer and rolled down an embankment -basically totaling the car. Brad had great hopes for running this season but now it's back to the shop to work on "Rally X", his secret new rally vehicle. He and Gary Garman are very tight lipped about what they are building but knowing them it will be very quick. Can't wait to see it. It was nice to see a bunch of drivers and co-d rivers wh.o weren't running the rally out working the time controls. I saw Ole Holter, Tom Bier and Jay Streets on the stages we finished. It was also nice to see Matt Sweeny and Lucinda Straub drag themselves away from their Special Effects company to work a stage or two. By the way, the Time Machine they built for the movie was awesome. Rumor has it they are working on a "Charlie's Angels" sequel right now. Next up on our schedule is the Prescott Forest Rally. Bill Barfoot and his group have a great rally planned with some really nice "roads this year. Remember, if you can't attend as a rally team please come anyway and help Bill with his rally. See you at the start line. "CRANDON WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP OFF ROAD RACE" Seven Good year Protrucks made the long tow to C rand on, Wisconsin and bravely stepped out of their comfort zone to take on the famous Crandon Raceway. With little time on the track, they enthusiastically took teir well-prepped Protrucks into the unknown. Continued on page54 A Paradigm is a pattern or an example.

wheelchairs unlawful. That fact was not lost on Nicole Pittel, who drew the attention of passers-by with an ear-piercing whistle. One point everyone agrees upon is that the land is a precious com1nodity, which needs to be pre-served. Environmentalists seem to feel that recre-ational land users, and off road enthusiasts in particu-lar, are doing damage to ar-eas they frequent. To these se 1 f-des cri bed co nserva-tionists, restricting the gen-eral public's access is the best way to ensure preser-vation of the land and its natural resources. CJ Stewart (I) one of the rally organizers, your author and Nicole Pittel, off road activist. Opponents of the Cali-fornia Wild Heritage Act have serious doubts re-garding the motivation be-hind these and other "land grabbing" measures. Many fear that land supposedly being designated to pre-serve it, will instead by sold or developed in the future. We've certainly 9/11-seen enough of that sce-nario lately to raise con-cern. The main issue would appear to be whether or not there is a need to designate more than 14% of California as wilderness. However, the underlying issue may very well be whether it is nec-essary to place restrictions on access to public land at all. Many feel the answer is no. Those of the opposite viewpoint seem to share an almost universal closed mindedness. Do they really believe off roaders are the ones who represent a threat to the land? Or could their constant finger pointing merely be a diversion?

Pit Team Reports continued ... Pro Trucks at Crandon Saturday's heat race, which was for starting positions only, was wet and slippery. The Protruck drivers carefully felt their way around for 10 laps. Jimmy Nuckles drove for Dwight Lunkley in a tribute to Dennis Dugan, his recently deceased driver, and easily took the win. The Lunkley team was followed by Rick Johnson #43, Rob Reinertson #34, Dan Hunt #26, Dave Hunt #24, Steve Barlow #99 and Al Hogan #28. Sunday was a beautiful hot mid-west day. The record crowd filled the hillside and fence line. Crandon graciously agreed not to water the truck and our now confident drivers anxiously took the starting line. After a heart pounding land rush start, all seven Protrucks came roaring into sight in a pack. Halfway through the first lap in an attempt· to make a pass, the two RJR Ford Protrucks driven by Rick Johnson and rider Brian Salee and Rob Reinertson with rider Dewey Lamora collided together in a heart stopping violent race accident. The race was red-flagged and Rick, Rob and Brian were transported by ambulance to a pearby hospital for evaluation and treatment of injuries. PRO was blessed when NEW FOR 2002!

Rob Reinertson fractured his clavicle bone and will be wearing a sling for a while, but all is well. After the accident, the five remaining Protrucks lined up and put on a great show, with only six laps remaining to race, they ran a sprint to the finish and again Jimmy Nuckles, driving for Dwight took home the victory and $7,000 with World Championship title rings for Jimmy, co-rider Jeff Shannon, and one in absentia for the late Dennis Dugan. Dave Hunt got second in the main event, followed by Steve Barlow, Al Hogan and Dan Hunt.
