He has 3 wins to his credit, 6 top 5 finishes, 17 top 10 finishes and Jimmie is 2nd in points! We wish all of our graduates the best in their racing careers.

SCCA DESIGNATION -The Sports Car Club of America announced the selection of "Rally In 100 Acre Wood" as host of the SCCA ClubRally National Championship through 2005. The CRNC is an annual gathering of the nation's top ClubRallyists, selected from the previous year's competition and results. This event is to Performance Rallying as the Valvoline runoffs are to SCCA Club Racing, and will award National Champions in each of the five SCCA ClubRally classes. 100 Acre Wood Rally runs near Salem, Missouri and was a big hit among the competitors, they appreciated the central location and the very challenging roads. P.S. They am looking for some corporate sponsorship for the upcoming years. For more info contact Kim DeMotte, the lO0Acre Wood Chairman. 314-963-1112 or CRANDON CHAMPIONS -First time ever, Carl Renezeder took the Pro 4x4 Truck class championship as well as the Pro 2wd Truck class. Carl competed well all year in his Lucas Oil/BFG Chevrolet and was more than elated to take a double championship. The race of the Labor Day weekend was the 8th annual BorgWarner Shootout, which pits 4x4 trucks against similarly configured 2wd trucks in a heavy metal challenge race. Scott Taylor won the Shootout, his first, and drove away with $37,000 in cash purse and in prizes. Taylor is the first of the 2wd group ever to win the Shootout. It was the 6th consecutive win in the Shootout for Ford. There was a ProTruck race also and that win went to Jimmy Nuckles driving Dennis Dugan's vehicle. A complete list of th e winners in each class is listed here. Scott Taylo r, BorgWarner Shootout, Carl Renezeder, Pro 4 4x4 Truck'and Pro 2 Truck, Jerry Bundy, Formula 4x4 Truck , Jeff Kincaid, Pro Lite Truck, Tommy Bradley, Jr., Sportsman 2 Pickup, Mark Kleiman, Sportsman Stock Pickup, Jimmy Nuckles, Pro Truck, Rob Weiland, Sedan C lassix, Josh Hintz, Light Buggy, M ike Seefeldt Jr., Single Buggy, Scott Schwalbe, Super Buggy and Don Demeny, Enduro Truck. Congrats to all the Crandon Champions from Dusty Tim es. FINAL FLAG - Ali Miller was only 31 years old when her time came, much too soon. Ali passed away in late September and will be remembered by her family, friends and fellow racers. She always brought a friendly smile to the races, as well as her willingness to help the racers in whatever they needed, including her SUV for pre-running. Ali will be missed, but not forgotten, as her time to pass came too quickly. Ali is now in a better place, but will have more pre-run time when it comes for all of us to have that big race in the sky. Those who knew Ali are all better people for knowing her. FOREST CREASY - Fores·t, our VORRA reporter was injured racing at Lovelock, Nevada. He sent Dusty Times this note and we are printing it here for all to see. "I started the race, 4th out of 5 Class 9 cars. The race was in Lovelock, Nevada and was held on Labor Day weekend. Soon into the race a pileup about a mile from the start occurred with a couple of Class 10 cars. About 15 minutes later a couple of fire trucks were dispatched to see what was going on. All the vehicles leaving after the fire 'trucks were told of the trucks and to be careful, however, the course was very dusty and no one was behind the trucks to let racers know where the fire trucks were. Also, the fire tn1cks were on the race course, causing dust. The racers were not aware that the Fire trucks were actually on the course. A couple of Class 9 cars almost hit the trucks, but drove around at the last minute. I was no so lucky as I drove my car right into the back of the rear fire truck. I totaled my race car. I also broke my jaw, had stitches in my cheek and lip and lost a tooth. I am recovering well and should be back to normal by the_ end of October. Thanks to everyone for their support. A side note: next time red flag the race so this doesn't happen to someone else. I got lucky, a couple of inches further and I woulcihave been killed." 3 3"0 ANNUAL SNORE 250 - Boy, what a race, lots of action, perfect weather, a great entry and all systems were go!

ME SAGA - At the recent CODE 200 Millas de Botica Santa Maria, HHector Salazar won the coveted Class 7 prize of $1500, put up by the Home Saga outfit, which happens to be his company. Hector generously pledged the money back to the class 7 purse for the next COD'E. race, so there will be a $3000 payoff for Class 7at the CODE last race of the year. Also, there is $500 for the Class 5 winner from L.M. Equipment Sales, Imperial, CA and $300 for the 5-1600 win posted by Tractorland in Sumerton, AZ.

Coyne had major Hoffman's Protruck-turned-Trophy Continued on page 12 and went back to Baja with a win. Solorzano liked the split format, and said he thought the race was "safer" because of it. The Sportsman International Buggy class consisted of only one entry, a Baja Bug driven by David Vieira. It completed only one lap, and because it was required to run two laps, it was a DNF. In the regular Sportsman Buggy class there were two entries. Arthur Basile, in a Chenowth, and Kory Scheeler and Larry Job in a six cylin-der Porsche powered C hen owth pre-runner. Scheeler did the first lap, and he led by a margin of 26 minutes at the end of the lap. Basile, unfortu-nately, disappeared on the second lap, and thus, Job had no competi-tion. He says they not only broke a trailing arm, but also ran out of gas. Job's reason for two highly experi-enced racers entering the Sportsman class, was that if his wife didn't get a chance to ride, he'd have his permis-sion to race withdrawn. She did seem to be having a good time. Some other folks thought that Scheeler and Job were getting a very nice pre-run for their Class 1 race coming up at two o'clock. Job and Scheeler go into the record books as the Sportsman Buggy class winners. As the last few racers from "Group A" straggled in to the finish, the racers in "Group B" were already staging. There were just a few min-utes there where the course became the staging area, and the final few finishers had to be shunted off to the side a bit. It worked fine, causing no confusion or conflict. There were eight classes in the second group, and the Trophy Trucks, Class 1 and Protrucks would run all four laps. Then Classes 8, 7, 7S and Stock Full would run three, while Stock Mini was required to do only two. The Trophy Trucks took off first, with 11 starters. When they returned it was Jerry Whelchel in front on elapsed time, in Mark Post's Ford, ahead of Dan Smith in another Ford by just 38 seconds. Smith was actu-ally first on the road. Then it was Tim Herbst in his Ford, 33 seconds later. In fourth it was Marty Coyne in Robby Gordon's Ford. They all looked breathtaking going through the infield jumps and turns and the spectators were electrified. Gus Vildosola's truck, driven by Rob MacCachren, didn't make it due to a blown head gasket early in the lap, and Jeff Geiser didn't get the new Arizona based Ford through the first lap either. Jesse Jones had some prob-lems with his Ford and lost about 20 minutes, and then didn't get the sec-ond lap completed. Brian Collins had broken an oil line on his C hevy.

He had blown his Kia's race motor while testing, how-ever, and was underpowered. Now the watchers pondered what would happen when and if Ashley caught back up to Herbst. Would he follow in the dust, or would he try to blow past and retake the lead? They'll never now. Ashley had a bad flat that wrapped around the axle and had to be cut off, and he lost 1nany minutes. But Ed Herbst avoided tire trouble and got around cleanly, with a lap of 1:09:36, to take the win. The team said that Tim had had a "few flats", and they had to "give too much time away checking stuff in the pits." Ed, with two laps in the 1:09 range, had made up some time. Car builder Mike Smith said they had put a "new five speed controller on it -and we think our gremlins are solved." This was their third victory at Primm, but they were looking for the overall. Collins finished second, his son still riding in that third seat and grin-ning from ear to ear. Steinberger was third, bur didn't stop to talk and then Ashley and Smith came in, having lost an hour on that final lap, in fourth place. Post and Whelchel were fifth and Skilton was sixth, the last Trophy Truck to finish. The Class 1 cars were the next group off the line, any number of them with visions of an overall vic-tory dancing in their heads. The dream flew away early for Andrew Myers whose Jimco/Toyota didn't make it around the course even once. But the rest of the group sailed on and Mike Julson had that V6 mov-ing right along, although it ran a bit hot and he was holding back just a little. Ernie Castro had his Toyota J imco about a minute and six sec-onds behind him, and Chuck Hovey was less than a minute further back in his V4 Jimco. Danny Anderson ran fourth in his Jimco/Toyota, and in fifth it was B.J. Richardson in John Gaughan's Bunderson/Chevy. On the second lap Michael James disappeared, no doubt thinking long-ingly about the old Class 5 car that never used to quit - still doesn't in fact. Julson recorded the fast lap of the day, for all classes, at 1:08:42, and now he had three minutes and 10 seconds on Castro. Anderson had moved up to third, with Richardson in fourth and Hovey fifth. There were more fast movers in the back-ground, just waiting to fill in the spots should any of these guys mess up. Scheeler and Job (who'd done so well in the Sportsman class) had a two hour first lap, and also lost time on the second lap, so it didn't look Dusty Times

Page 13

as if they'd get a second victory this afternoon. Bob Lofton took over for Julson on the third lap, and maintained the pace. He was four minutes to the good at the end of the lap, and Anderson had slid up to second place. Hovey was third, and John Marking and Rob MacCachren were now fourth, in Marking's V8 pow-ered Jimco. Marking had had a couple of flats in the dust, and Mac-Cachren was now driving, and dis-covering just how very fast the car is. Dan Myers had moved into fifth in his Jimco/Chevy. Richardson was no longer running, nor was Albert Mc-Mullen in his great big McMullen/ Chevy. As the sun set and the sky dark-ened Lofton and Julson were watch-ing the clock and starting to think about an overall win. They'd won the class here at Primm in the past, but never had an overall, and it was look-ing possible. Close, but possible. Lofton kept his cool, stayed out of trouble, and did another good lap. Their elapsed time was four hours and 44 minutes flat. The Herbsts had finished about six minutes before them, and all the nonofficial time-keepers were adding and subtracting like mad. Finally, Sal Fish, CEO or SCORE, hied himself over to the timing team to get the official word. And Lofton and Julson had the over-all by just one second. They had the Class 1 win by five minutes and 15 seconds, and it was Anderson in sec-ond lace. He said he'd had "little problems, brake problems and steer-ing problems, but nothing I had to stop for." He liked the split formal, and said he thought it was "a lot safer." In third it was Marking and MacCachren. MacCachren had flat-tened one tire, but otherwise had no Ken and Don Moss brought their Class 3 Bronco out to do battle with the elements at Primm and managed to complete all three required laps, for a Class 3 win. Alan Pflueger celebJated his graduation from rookie racer status by taking the victory (his first) in the Protruck division in his Chevrolet. trouble. Hovey was fourd1, reporting a flat that got wrapped around a cali-per and lost him some time on the last lap. He said he'd concentrated on finishing. And in fifth it was Castro, and co-driver, Dale Ebberts, who did the last two laps. They'd had to weld up a crack in the frame, and the axle was working its way out of the rear hub, but otherwise they had no problems. Skyler Falcon, voted best looking navigator of the race by the girls at the finish line, rode in the passenger seat all the way. Dan Myers lost about six minutes on the last lap because after the sun set the wind died down and the dust hung. He said he'd rather have started the race in the morning. (But, ifhe had, he'd have discovered that the dust hung on the course on the first lap -six of one, half-dozen of another.) Ron Brant and Richard Boyle fin-ished seventh in their Jimco/Chevy, Pat Dean was eighth and Scheeler and Job finished ninth. Troy Herbst, who'd had electrical problems, call-ing for battery replacements and the like, was the tenth vehicle to finish, after a two-hour-plus third lap, part of which he drove with no lights in full dark. He was almost two and a half hours down to the winning cars. There was some confusion about whether or not he'd actually earned a finish, but that was due to a change in the time allowance for this race. Somewhere between the time that SCORE printed their program and actually started the race, they'd de-cided to give everyone a full eight Mike Julson and Bob Lofton continued their long partnership; co-drove in their Chevy V6 powered Jimco, and took the Class 1 and overall victory at Primm. Jason Lakin and Todd Cunningham each drove a lap and a half in their 5-1600 car, had no trouble, and went home with the class win. · Dusty Times hour time limit. A bulletin was ap-paren tly printed, but not everyone saw it, and many went into the race thinking there w~ only a seven hour time limit. Fish, and other officials, tried to counteract the misinforma-tion, but were unable to get to every-one. Herbst wasn't the only driver to finish in over seven hours. There was no skullduggery about the time limit. The Protrucks were also in this group, and also did four laps. There were only four of them, but they still had some good racing. Alan Pflueger had his newly painted Chevy in front, with the best lap time for the group, at 1:21:29 at the end of Lap 1. He was.just 12 seconds in front of Steve Barlow, in a Ford, who was only three and a half minutes up on Greg Lewin in Chet Huffman's Ford. Steve 01-liges spent two hours with some kind of problem, but eventually came around in fourth place, clearly so far down he'd be unable to finish. Pflueger kept moving at a good pace, but Lewin was a tad quicker the next lap, and moved into second, only two and a half minutes out. Barlow was now third, only 15 sec-onds back. Olliges was .moving, but out of the running. Pflueger, who started his racing career at the Primm a year ago, said he's no longer a rookie. He certainly didn't look like one as he continued to maintain his lead through the third lap. Lewin let Huffman get into the truck, and he held second place, while Barlow, also driving at a steady rate, stayed firm in third. Olliges had had a non-stellar second lap, then a fair lap, obviously somehow, but was out of time for Lap 4. Pflueger went on to take the win, his first, reporting no flat tires. He said it had been "fun", but then went on to say that "winning's always fun!" Inciden-tally, Pflueger, who lives in Ha-waii, has a wiggling, plastic hula girl on his truck's dashboard. Seems just right somehow. Huff-man and Lewin were second only eight minutes later followed in by Barlow, over an hour down, after· a very long fourth lap. Class 8 ran only three laps, and only three of the five entrants made it all the way. Things looked pretty even on Lap 1, with Dave Raimonde taking the lead in his Chevy, just 16 seconds in front of Nick Vanderwey in the cow-painted GMC Sierra. In third it was Robby Fallers, another minute and 15 seconds back. Beny Canela, one of the oldest drivers at this event, at 66, had his Fotd in fourth, and Joe Patelli (almost as old as Canela) had lost a half hour or so with his Blazer and was running catch-up. Raimonde stayed in front through the second lap, but he had just under five minutes, and that could easily change. Vanderwey and his brother, Larry, were still in second place. Canela didn't get the second lap com-pleted. Fallers was third, but had had about a half hour worth of trouble, and Patelli's lap was also on the long side, but he was still running. On the last lap Larry Vanderwey recorded the best time for this class, at 1:20:01, while Raimonde was struggling with fuel pressure problems. He had to switch to his spare fuel pump.

Fallers had fallen out on the final lap. Class 7 also had five entries, scheduled for three laps. Rick Taylor's beautiful new paint job didn't get a chance to get dirty. He was on a tow strap before all the other racers had started. So there were only four trucks out there rac-ing, and it seemed that Michael Becker was doing more struggling with his Toyota Tacoma, than rac-ing. His first lap was over three and a half hours long, which meant it would be tough to get two more laps in. He didn't. then some with repairs. Salazar had electrical problems and the fans wouldn't work, so his motor overheated. But Jernigan, who'd had all his troubles just a few days before the race when a friend rolled his just-finished car during testing, kept moving steadily for-ward. He had a lead of 45 minutes at the end of Lap 2, and Salazar was in second place. He had vet-eran Baja racer (but not u_sually in a truck) Porfirio (Indio) Gutierrez riding with him all three laps.

Everyone else got all the laps done. At the end of Lap 1 the lead belonged to Eric and Jared Hardin in their GMC, and they had only three minutes on Dan Fresh in his Jeep Comanche. Jason Hunter, from Snowmass Village, Colorado, was third in his Toyota Tacoma and in fourth it was Darrell Herman in a Ford Ranger. Hunter and Herman had both had long first laps, but Herman's afternoon got even longer on the next lap. The Hard ins ticked off another steady lap to hold their lead, with Fresh following right behind them. He'd had a serious overheat-ing problem at Henderson, so this time, just in case, he was carrying a small plastic container of water, connected to a fuel pump and line, which could cool the radiator with a spray of water :-;hould it prove necessary. Hutter had a better sec-ond lap, but.Herman lost another two hours. It was now seriously in doubt whether he could make it within the eight hour time limit. The Hardins slowed a bit on the last lap but were still moving at a fair clip, and went on to take the victory. Fresh caught up to them, and was trying to get a run and maybe go by them, but then Ashley caught him on the dry lake and created such a dust storm that he got lost. So Fresh was second, only three minutes and 56 seconds back. In third it was Hutter, an hour and a half later. And Her-man, who'd had two slow laps, now recorded the fast time for this class, at 1:42:28, trying to get all the way around in time for an of-ficial finish. He must have had nearly a dust free run, because he was apparently the last person out there, and he got his finish, just 4 5 seconds before his time would have run out. Good show! The Stock Full class was only John Griffin, in his AM General Hummer, who had to do only two laps. He did them both, finishing his race in 5:26, at an average speed of 26.08 rhiles per hour (Julson's speed was 60 mph).

Armin Schwarz crashed heavily :md suf-fered broken ribs and is a doubtful starter for SanRemo. The 10th round of the 2002 World Rally Championship and the fourth round of the Junior World Rally Championship was held in Germany, the first World Rally . Championship ever to be held in this country and the first newcomer to the championship since Cyprus, 2000. It was an all asphalt event in which virtually every stage was used twice. It was the first rally of the sea-son under the 2002 rules to attract a full 90 car entry, and the only World event to have some asphalt stages that could be called "rough!" This was Citroen's last appearance of the season, it was the final time that all seven championship teams would be competing together. In 1982 the Deutschland Rally was first run as an event in it's own right. With the 2001 Deutschland Rally deliberately held as a "trial" future World Championship quali-fying event, a lot of the event this year was unchanged. This year the rally was held in three regions, a combination of three separate tra-ditions and provided different at-. mospheres and challenges each day. The organizers ·were concerned with a great unknown factor, how many spectators would show up? Peugeot had to let their asphalt spe-cialist, Panizzi, stay at home, hoping his torn shoulder ligaments would heal in time for SanRemo. Citroen obtained permission to replace Radstrom (broken ribs) with Jesus Puras. Subaru had four entries on a World rally for the first time this year. Team principal David Lapworth, "It will be nothing like other tarmac rallies, not only be-cause of the surface, but also because the roads do not twist like on other events. Most of the corners are tight!" Two teams had new drivers, Subaru entered Achim Kortl and Skoda had Matthias Kahle. Mitsubishi was the only team to have missed both the chance to compete here last year and also missed the official test ses-sion in July. Hyundai was down to a two car entry. The second half of the Junior WRC season began here. No driver had finished all three events so far, in fact, only 11 had finished more than once and eight never! The race for the title was close, the top five drivers were separated by only three points and Citroen drivers held the top three places. Suzuki had made technical changes to their three cars and Peugeot were back again with a single car. Opel had newly strength-ened suspension pieces and Rover/ MG had a new lighter car for Gwyndaf Evans. It was the variety as much as the exclusivity of the types of stages which was the most notable feature of the event. Armin Schwarz noted, "The special character of the Deutschland is that each day's rallying has a dif-ferent character and the roads a dif-ferent kind of surface. The first day, in the vineyards has many junctions, many of them tight. The vines are over six fee tall, giving the drivers the feeling of driving through a tunnel. Saturday's rough concrete stages are at the military ranges and have been Dusty_ Times

French teams showed determi-nation right from the start, on the first stage Granholm and Richard Burns were joint leaders. Granholm pulled in front on Stage 2 but had a hydraulic leak on 3. This effected everything and dropped him to sixth. He lost more time at Service and before Stage 4 he was down to 11th. This allowed Loeb's Citroen to move in front and the French-man pulled steadily away from Burns. Solberg held a promising third place in the early stages but then lost time with power steering problems and Bugalski's Citroen was now third with Colin McRae in fourth. Loeb finished the day nearly half a minute ahead of Burns. OFF ROAD'S MOST Many of the drivers were stalling their engines. Some, like Loeb when he spun on the first stage, some like Solbergwhen he braked heavily and killed the engine and some like Dele-cour when he applied a bit too much handbrake. Makinen applied his handbrake on the first hairpin of the first stage and the handle came away with his hand. Markka Martin was having trouble shifting gears. Kenneth Eriksson had to bleed his · brakes after Stage 2 while teammate Gardemeister didn't know if the en-gine would react instantly to the throttle. Two of Subaru's four driv-ers went off the road shortly after the start of the first stage. Toshihiro Arai needed spectators to push him back onto the road and then he had fine more spins in the next three stages! Mord went off on the first left hand bend, broke a brake disc, had to dismantle the hub to remove the caliper. Matthias Kahle retired when his engine stopped on Stage 3 and Puras' engine stopped suddenly and terminally with electrical prob-lems. Spectators were in abundance and there were three incidences of cars going into the crowds, but, by some sort of miracle there were no reported injuries. As the day wore on, Loeb retained his lead even though a tire came off the rim on Stage 4. Eriksson had a broken front driveshaft on his Skoda and both Arai and McRae retired, respectively with gearbox and turbo failure. The spectator pressure was unbearable. Colin McRae, running first car on the road had his start aborted two seconds before the "go", and then again 20 seconds before the "go" and eventu-ally the stage was canceled.

Third place in the Semi Pro Division went to Hooter Meyer, his slow third lap being very costly. the end of Lap I , but he too suffered some terminal prob-lem and never completed his second lap. Last, but not least, Billy Manfroy never com-pleted his first lap. Class 9 only had four start-ers and one of them, our in-trepid reporter never finished a lap. The story I have heard is that Forest was only a few miles into the first lap when he ran into a slow moving emergency vehicle, hidden in it's own dust, slid partially under said vehicle, destroyed his car, suffered a broken jaw and after being airlifted to Reno for some surgery was back on the mend and casting around for a new race car. Eric Steiger, fourth to start had a three hour first lap and decided to call it a day. Vanessa Cannon wa s first off the line in C lass 9, was in the second spot after the first lap, remained in second for the rest of the contest, losing only a few minutes a lap t o t h e leader and settled fo r t h e sil-ver medal.

Once the dust had settled the big winner of the event was Jesse Casillas as he took home a Grand Prize Go-Ped in the 125 Expert class and also took home the winner's share of the $ 2000 purse (plus payback money) in each of the 125 and 250 Pro classes. Winning three of the Grand Prizes was Micky Griffin as he won the 125 Intennedi-ate, 125 16-25 year old and 250 Inter-mediate classes. The other Grand Prize winners were Brian Taylor, Pee Wee 0-6 Stock; Eric Yorba, Pee Wee 7-8 Stock; Colt Hubbs, Super Pee Wee 0--9; Aus-tin Politelli, 60 0-8; Chris Plouffe 60 9--11; Trevor Reis 80 7-11; Donnie Kear-ney 80 Novice; Adrian Fuller, 80 In-termediate; Cas Swift, Supermini; Michael Parker, 125 12-15; Brock Warden 125 Novice; Kevin Frisbe, 250 Novice; and Chris Wheeler, 250 Ex-pert. Beginner and Modified class win-ners did not race for Grand Prizes but were rewarded for their effort with a trip through the prize line. On the first 125 Pro event Casillas saw Tyler Evans shoot out of the gate and Casillas then found himself back in sixth during the first lap. On the following lap Chris Wheeler tried to block pass Casillas and both riders went down. The Pros were turning laps in just under two minutes and Casillas had seven laps to make up the lost po-sition. By lap 5 Casillas and Evans were trading the lead. 111e two put some excitement into the event until Evans lost his concentration allowing Casillas to pull away. Mike Sleeter strong anned Evans out of second and in doing so opened the door for Jeff Willow, Bran-don Morgan and Chris Wheeler past Evans. In the second moto Casillas decided not to ptay around 'and took his Yamaha around Turn I leading the pack. Tyler Evans was again on his tail but this time Casillas inched away from the pack. Back in the pack Chris Wheeler was using every trick he could use to gain groui:id on Evans. With just two laps to go Wheeler jumped to the inside of Evans at the right-hander on top of the uphill. A startled Evans then allowed Jeff Willow to take third. In the 125 Expert class Sean Thornton rode his Honda around Turn 1 with Wheeler, Casillas and Cory MaComber in tow. While Casillas was busy keeping MaComber at bay Wheeler put the inside move on Thornton for the lead. Soon after Casillas put Thornton in third. Just before Lap 3 MaComber's throttle cable broke making him a spectator. During this lap Casillas muscled his way through the rough wash area to take over the event. With nothing but real estate between him and the checkered Casillas checked out on Wheeler and Thornton. There were eight 250 Pro riders at the gate for Moto l. There was some pushing and shoving during the first two turns so Casillas quickly put some breathing room between himself and the hungrypack. Just as in the 125 Pro races Casillas held the lead all the way to the checkered. In the second 250 event Lars-Erik Larson jumped out front and held the position until Lap 2. Then Casillas took over and checked out on the pack. The only event Casillas didn't win was the 250 Expert class. Chris Wheeler was able to best Casillas' ef-fort in both motors. 111ird overall was hole shot artist Todd Mitchell over Dustin Watson who DNR Moto 2. Micky Griffin lost the first 250 In-ternational race to Gale Wallace but came back and turned things around in Moto 2 Cory Criss went 3-4 in the event to earn the third overaU spot. In the following race Griffin was content at the checkered behind Wallace know-ing his 1-2 gave him the overall over Wallace's3-l results. There were 13 125 Intermediates at the line for Mato l. As all 13 riders approached Turn 1, it was Gale Wallace on his Yamaha that everyone was after. Behind Wallace was another Yamaha ridden by Micky Griffin then Larry Reese and Marcos Rayes. Wallace had checked out and Griffin was able to keep Nick Davis behind him throughout the event. In the sec-ond race Griffin decided from Turn 1 he wanted to win the event. Nick Davis followed Griffin. Tommy McAdams had finished 11th in Mota 1 but used a good start to stay with the leaders in third place. Griffin won (the moto and the class overall) with Davis and McAdams tailing. Brock Harden rode his KIM to the overall 125 Novice win after taking Mota 1 then placing second to Michael Parker in Round 2. Parker had an eighth place Moto l finish and ended the day fifth overall. Hollis Lusk took the second overall honors with his 4-3 showing. Dayton Benegas took third overall in the class of22 riders. Kevin Frisbie placed second to Harden in the first go around then dropped to sixth in Moro 2 giving him fourth overall. In the 250 Novice action Neal DeGanno jumped out front of the other 18 riders in Moto 1. On his tail was Kevin Frisbie who used the back . whoop section to take DeGarmo's position away. Once out front Frisbie checked out and left DeGarmo to battle itoutwithJ.R Williams. TI1esec-ond moto was much the same as Mato l. Once Frisbie pointed his Yamaha to the checkered flag it was over. DeGarmo held off Ja;;on Stinett for second and Steniett's 7-3 effort was good enough for third overall. A total of 28 Supermini riders signed upso thegroupwasdivided into two divisions with a main event held to determine the overall. Brad Masters took the first division event win and Cas Swift won the other. In the final show down a total of 23 riders rook the gate. There was plenty of back and forth racing for second and beyond as Swift quickly showed the pack his num-ber 176 printed on the back of his jer-sey. Clay Higgins put himselfin second before the main checkered. Joshua I Iuertz held off a group of bikes for several laps and was able to keep his third place foiish. Brad Masters didn't enjoy the main event at all as he fin-ished 22nd. With 31 riders signed up in the 85cc Novice 7-16 year old Class 2 divisions were created with a main event. When it got to the main event there were 24 riders. Donnie Kearney hole shot the event to the surprise of many as he had placed 11th in both of his division races. Kearney got a little help as favor-ites Dakota Garner and Ivan Shultz went down in front of the tower early on. Another surprise was second place Chris Plouffe as he had gone 3-14 in the division events. l11ird place went to Josh Bourgeois-Sanchez. Another popular smail-bore class was the 65cc 9-11 year old and they also had to run in a main event. Chris Plouffe took the first class win and Cameron Drown went 3-1 to beat out Austin Bergeron in Division II. TI1e main event decided the grand prize win-ner and at the checkered flag it was Chris Plouffe edging out Killy Rusk. Third was Kyle Coffman. Another main event run off was used as 30 riders signed up in the 50cc 0-9 Super Pee Wee event. After the event it was Colt Hubbs taking home the Go-Ped. Hubbs had won his divi-sion with repeat wins over Blake Cam-Dusty Times

If this year's ""Barstow 300" is any indication, there are plenty of reasons for opti-mism. The race drew 51 start-ers, including a stellar cast of 36 Pro 1600 members. The dynamic duo of Bruce Fraley and Rob MacCachren was looking to up their season mark to a perfect three for three on the circuit. Perhaps the biggest obstacle standing in the way of their "3-peat" was the searing summer heat. Au-tumn was a mere two days away, but you couldn't tell with the mercury racing toward 120 degrees. It would. surely take a Herculean effort for competitors to traverse 300 grueling miles through the blis-tering Barstow desert. Amaz-ingly, there were a dozen who did. Who were these 12 men of steel and did any other en-trants complete their assigned number of laps? The answer to those questions and much M.O.R.E. lie just ahead. No, onward to race recap time. During the early going, competitors found themselves ha1npered by extremely dusty conditions.' As a result of the limited visibility, only one en-trant was able to complete Lap 1 in under 47 minutes. Rick Boyer turned that trick, estab-lishing the early lead with a strong 46:58 ·opening loop. On the following lap, class-mate Jeff Carr recorded the day's first sub-46-minute loop (45:56). All told, there would be six (sub-46-minute laps) posted, three of them by Carr and teammate Jeremy Har--mon. The fastest lap of the day was a 45:12 gem·turned in by Rob MacCachren on Lap 3. "Big Mac's" sizzling third loop propelled the MacCachren/ Fraley team into the overall· lead. Unbeknownst to their ri-vals, the race was over at that point. MacCachren posted sev-eral more solid loops, indud-ing- a 45:36 beauty on Lap 5, before turning matters over to Fraley. Brian Anderson made a strong run at the leaders, but Fraley hung on gamely for the win. Fraley and MacCachren, the Pro 1600 and overall race winners, polished off their eight lap assignment in a swift 6:13:53. Nearly everything went right for the "2002 Bar-stow 300 Champions." "We had one flat tire, oth-erwise it was a flaw less day," said Fraley. "It was really dusty early, so we had to go slow for a while," added MacCachren, "but this car is indestructible." Despite an array of minor problems, Anderson still came within 5:33 of landing on the top prize. "Lots of bad luck, small things like air filters, flats and just one thing after an-other," said Anderson. The overall runner-up com,pleted his eight laps in an excellent 6:19:26. Brad Maurer, who took over for Rick Boyer, fin-ished four and a half minutes behind Anderson to place third in Pro 1600. According to Maurer, his team had a trouble-free day and only stopped for fuel. That was not the case for fourth place fin-ishers Jeff Carr and Jeremy Harmon. "l rolled on Lap 3 and had a flat on Lap 5," said Hannon. Despite the mishaps, Carr and Harmon still com-bined for a good 6:25:24 fi-nal time. Things were even more eventful for the Steele -brothers, Brian and Scott, who wound up finishing fifth. Actually, things went accord-ing to plan for Scott, who completed the first four laps without incident. Shortly after their brother-in-law Tevon took over, the team's fate took a turn for the worse. "Tevon had only driven about 10 min-utes when he hit a hole, which caused both him and the co-driver to suffer concussions," said Brian. After the pair limped into Pit A with a flat, Tevon was taken to the hospi-tal and treated for his concus-sion and a torn muscle in his shoulder. According to Brian, Scott climbed back into the driver's seat, but the incident was not yet over. In all the fu-ror surrounding his brother-in-law's injuries, Scott was well down the road before he no-ticed his co-driver had blacked out. Despite switching co-driv-ers and having Brian (still smarting from a broken back) drive the final lap, the tearri still managed to post a rather remarkable 6:27:41 clocking. The team of Dan Martin and Kevin Smith finished sixth in Pro 1600. Martin, who drove all but the final two laps, was quite pleased with his team's performance. "We're testing for the Baja 1000 and this was the first time out in the car," said Mar tin. It was 48 seconds further back to sev-enth place finishers, Bryan and Curt Geer. The talented father and son team combined for a 6,34;44 final time, while mak-ing their Pro 1600 class debut. Robert Naughton overcame engine trouble to record an eighth place finish.

"The car ran good, there were just a lot of 16 cars," Heineman said. Meanwhile, Lopez, a devoted crew member of the talented Fay Racing Team, had a very rough go of it. Lopez' day ended abruptly, less than 40 miles into the race when he " ... hit the biggest rock on the course." The impact pretzeled the I-beams and broke the starter of the motor. Needless to say, Lopez was unable to com.plete his initial loop. And that completes our re-cap of this year's "Barstow 300." Congratulations to the fine folks at M.O.R.E. for put-ting on a great race, which re-warded competitors with more than $13,000.00 in take home money. Incidentally, the club had promised $6,000.00 in bonus money to Pro 1600 members, provided the divi-sion had at least 40 starters. Well, after a few vehicles broke during practice, only 36 entrants wound up start-ing. Ultimately however, the decision was made to pay the $6K anyway. And as the ex-ceedingly accommodating Mr. Clements later pointed out, "Thar's why we are called M.O.R.E." Dusty Times

BITD BAJA MEX 300 Stewart And Sellers Take It overall By Judy Smith Photos: Trackside Photo Ed Stewart and Scott Sellers shared the driving in Stewart's VB Chevy powered Jimco, and went home with the Class 1500 win as well as the overall car/truck victory at the Baja Mex 300. · Ed Stewart and Scott Sellers teamed up in Stewart's Chevy V8 powered Jimco to take the overall victory at the inaugural Best In The Desert Baja Mex 300 in September. The race started and finished in the short-course track on the edge of the handsome Estero Beach re-sort property, and made a big circle through some familiar areas. It took a slightly different approach into Uruapan, then headed northeast and zigzagged into Tres Hermanos, then continued to and through El Alamo. After swinging down through Independencia, it twisted northwest again, to pick up the Alamo Road and charge straight across Highway 3, and through the Santa Catarina area, and along some old roads and finaliy onto the Goat Trail and down onto the high-way and into Valle Trinidad. From there the trail went westward, out to Llano Colorado, across Highway 1, then hit the beach at Johnson Ranch. The long road along the shore was familiar, and it went through Erendira and past Punta Cabras and the nice road into Santo Tomas. Instead of turning eastward there, the course continued north-ward, turning inward at the light-house, and snaking up into Santo Tomas from there. A short run up the pavement, a jog into the brush then back to the highway, and then parallel the highway and into the short-course track from the oppo-site direction they'd gone in the morning. The whole thing totaled about 287 miles. ELIMINATES HEAT . . . . . . . .. .. .. . . .. . INDUCED FATIGUE CLUB WATER SYSTEM Suspension. Horsepower. Rubber. You've already sweat the big stuff.

Pflueger was in attendance at his grandmother's 95th birthday, and wasn't able to be there to race, so Ragland would drive all the way. In the other truck, a Ford, it was Alan Hogan, who didn't race at the Primm. Ragland led into Trinidad by just two minutes, and it looked as if it would he a tight race all the way to the finish. But then, just before Pit 5, which was at Erendira, Hogan rolled his truck. After setting it back on its wheels he tried to make up time, and then he had three flat tires. Ultimately, Ragland, unruffled and · undamaged, took the win in a time of 7: 10:0 6, and an average speed of 39.544. He was third in the overall standings. Hogan, an hour and 15 minutes later, was second. The Class 8000 trucks went next, again with only two entries. Curt LeDuc, in a Ford, had an early prob-lem with his ignition, but switched to a spare and the truck was fine after that. At Trinidad he had about 50 minutes on Keith Fontana in his Chevy. LeDuc had a splendid day. He had time to notice folks in BITD vests standing in areas where racers might be tempted to short course, and he noticed "lots of cars" lying on their sides at sharp turns. He thought the course was "awesome, and fun," had no-flattires and never got out of the truck. He finished in 7 hours 37 minutes and 19 seconds to take the win and seventh place in the overall standings. His average speed was 37.653 mph. Fontana finished, still about 50 minutes down, but didn't stop to talk about his day. The Class 11 cars, which are SCORE Lite racers, were just behind the Class 8000s, with three starters. Lynn and Jeffrey Venier were never heard from again, and Tony Licitra, who came down from Oregon to drive his Chenowth, blew his motor at Pit 1, which was near Uruapan, or only about 35 miles into the race. That left Matias Arjona and Bruce Conrad in their pre-runner, to go it alone. But their day wasn't trouble free. Arjona blew a rear tire coming into the Goat Trail, and drove about three miles to his pit on the flat. Later, their air cleaners sucked so much dust they closed up and the car ran rich, using more fuel than they anticipated. They solved the air cleaner problem by taking the filters out and banging them on their feet to knock out the silt. After that the car ran fine and they made it to the finish for the win. Their time was 8: 2 9: I I, and they had an average speed of 33.818 1111ih.

Mateo Pabloff and Ramon Fernandez broke a clutch pedal and had some brake problems but still managed to finish second in the 5/ 1600 class, and they still had the hat. Miguel Pabloff and Thomas Fernandez had only one flat tire to trouble them, and they took the win the 5/1600 win, by 18 minutes. 12th in the overall standings. Class 7200, modified small pick-ups, was next off the line, with four starters. Matt Carter and Danny Kunz, in a Ford, disappeared in the first half of the race, but all the oth-ers made it back. Perry McNeil drove the first half in his Ford, and with no problems, led into Trinidad, but was only six minutes in front of Alonzo Acosta in another Ford. Acosta and his partner, Enrique· Guerrero, had rented their truck from Willie Valdez, who knows how to put together a race ready vehicle. Marco Guzman was having a tough day. He'd rolled his Ford right off the start line, while still in the short course section. He was nearly two · hours down to the others at Valle de Trinidad.

Behind him Enrique .Guerrero took over for Acosta, and had a good run also. Only 12 minutes slower than Mc-Neil for the second half of the race, he brought the truck back in sec-ond place, though he nearly endoed as he came across that finish line jump. Guzman got up to the beach and then "fell into a big hole" at Mile 240, which lost him an hour. He · said he's also been stuck in a river, and he'd lost a hose and the truck overheated. He still managed to get back to the finish for a third place finish, though he was about four hours down to the other two. The Stock full sized trucks, 8100, went off the line next, with three entries. Randy Merritt, in a Ford, started the race at 8:26 a.m., and at 9:45 the report came over the radio that he was already out. A very short day for Mr. Merritt. But that left Manny Esquerra and Greg Foutz, both in Fords, chasing one another. Foutz was first into Trinidad, but he had only 30 seconds on Esq-uerra, and it looked like some good racing coming up. And it was good and close for another 130 miles or so. Esquerra lost all his oil some-how, and had to stop to add some, but had no major problems or damage. But then, at Mile 252, only 35 miles from the finish, Foutz broke a steering box. The unsteerable truck then hit something, which folded a wheel up under the truck and broke the I-beam "clean in half." It also bent all the shocks.

Mike Warren, in another Ford, was fifth, his worst problem so far just blowing some turns. But then, that was a problem everyone mentioned on this right and twisty course. Davis' bad luck held, and he dis-appeared on the second half of the race. Warren moved up to the front with the fastest second half by 22 minutes, and rook the win. He re-ported no flats all day, and no other trouble. His time was 8:52:06 and he had an average speed of 32.361 mph. Behind him it was Novelo and · his co-driver, Marco Hernandez who also had no flats. They had been in the lead after Davis fell out, but about 20 miles before the finish got stuck on a sharp rocky uphill and lost some time. They were only seven minutes and 10 seconds behind Warren, in second place. Alvarado finished third, also reporting no flats. He said the course was "really technical, I love it." He was just about an hour behind second place. In fourth it was the team of John and Scott Jones, two refu-gees from Class 5-1600.

Zepeda got a fifth place finish, crossing the finish line with no brakes, no clutch and steam issuing from under the hood. And in sixth it was Dan Street, Jr., and Sr., who'd been stuck a couple times, and whose motor was going away. They were nearly three hours down to the winner of the class.

Ferandez had flattened one tire, and he'd had a lot of dust but the car was in good shape. His co-driver, Miguel Pabloff, who had his daugh-ter, Nadya, riding with him, ran off the road a couple of times, but he still had the best time for the second half of the day.

The big SUV class, 4100, were next to take the green flag, and be-fore they'd gone four miles Steve Sca-roni had tipped his huge diesel pow-ered Exctrrsion over onto its side. He said it took about 60 spectators and a 4x4 to get it back upright, but they did it fairly quickly. At Valle de Trinidad the lead belonged to Jose Pitones and Enrique Lara in a Ford, and they had about seven minutes on Marc Stein in another Ford. Sca-roni ran third, about six minutes later and John Sunderland, Jr., was fourth, and about 33 minutes fur-ther back in his Bronco. He was hav-ing brake problems. Stein disa1weared in the second half of the race. Buddy Crisp, in Sunderland's car, had the best time for that section, and moved up as Pitones and Lara had problems. They said they had dust in their gas and their air fiiter got plugged and.some-thing went wrong with their torsion bars. But they said they had a good time. Matt Scaroni took over for his dad, avoided flats and except for being stuck for a minute or two in the flooded fields near the finish, had no trouble. It was the first win for Steve and Matt, and they did it with a time of 9:22:40, and an average speed of30.603. They danced on the roof. In second it was Sunderland and Crisp, now with no brakes at all, their rear drums screeching in pro-test. Pitones and Lara were third, another hour back. The very stock mini truck class was next, and Rob MacCachren had taken an excused absence for this one. He did come down and pre-run the race with co-driver Steve Olliges, but had to return to Bar-stow for a 1/2-1600 event in which he was leading the points. He took the win in Barstow. And Olliges got the little truck around in good shape to get a win in Baja also. He said he never changed a tire and was "just -:ruisin', we've been rescuing people all day." He finished in 9:24:06, with an average speed of 30.526 mph. Anthony Napoleon was the only entrant in the small S. U.V. class, with his Bronco II. He had a very long day, but got his finish in the time of 12 hours and 56 minutes and four seconds, and ·an average speed of 22.18 mph.

Cahn down Patricia, I'm just kidding. Saturday, September 28, MOR hosted the semi-final race of its 2002 se-ries. There were 78vehicles entered, with 74 actually starring and 47 finishing. 'fak-ing nothing away from the race's overall winner, the biggest story of the day was that RichardBoyfe lost. In any other sea-son, Todd Jergenson'ssensational victory would rightfully rank as the major devel-opment. However, Boyle's complete domination of this year's MOR series makes his initial loss "front page" news. The dectricity generated by Boyle's 4-race winning streak was unexpectedly sapped during a L'lp 3 bL'lck-0ut. l11e result was a 3: 17 :07 loop whicl1 effectively dashed all thoughts of a 5-peat. Boyle's unex-pected power outage left the door wide open for the balance of the field. Jergenson was readywhen opportunlty knocked and his game perfonnance brought an end to "the streak" and the Eric Heiden was the, finally, undisputed winner of Class 8, he took the win with a ho"endous margin.
