JACK WALDRON CLEANUP - Mojave Desert Racing and Bonfire Racing are spearheading the 2nd annual Jack Waldron Memorial Desert Clean-up. Saturday, April 20 is the date, 9am is the meeting hour and the place is the OHV area at Outlet Center Drive and the 15 Freeway, just outside of the Lenwood/Barstow area. There will be a free dinner, courtesy of the Slash X Cafe, raffle prizes and lots of music by Team Cocktail Racing. Please bring gloves, shovels, rakes, etc. for your own use. For more information contact Bill Markel at 661-943-1786 or Patricia Williams at MDR, 626-442-9320. ANOTHER CLASS I ENTRY -The BFGoodrich Toyota Class 1 .race team of Mike and Robbie Groff will be pitting their skills at four races in 2002. The ex-Indy car drivers Toyota powered car has 22 inches of travel and is powered by the potent 3.2 liter Toyota aluminum V6. Two Best In The Desert races and 2 SCORE races will make up their schedule for the year. CORR SEMINAR -The CORR introductory seminar, held in February to introduce west coast racers to the CORR Series was a huge success. The program was designed to inform the west coasters about the opportunities available in the CORR series and some notable CORR racers were in attendance to answer queries. We're sure that Curt LeDuc, Scott Douglas, Rick Hus~man and Carl Renezeder were able to give the attendees their full attention. TI STAAB UPDATE -We had this info come in over the transom last week d we always love publishing good news. Honda Baja Champion Tim Staab ntinues to show signs of improvement after suffering a head injury at the Las Vegas 400 in December. Since being brought out of a medically induced coma in January, Tim has slowly been recovering. "He's awake all day and interacting with family and friends", said Honda's Bruce Olgive. "He's still got a long way to go but we are encouraged by his progress so far." Tim is currently at Scripps Memorial Hospital, La Jolla, where family members are with him every day. In recent weeks he has been taken off a respirator and has been undergoing physical and speech therapy. Visitors are welcome &om 11am to 8:30pm. We here at Dusty fimes wish Tim a continuing and complete recovery. ' SAN FELIPE RUMOR "MILL -Nobody knows for sure where the rumors start but at lease a few times a year we hear of some dire consequence that is causing a race to be cancelled, or a major date changed for some obscure reason. Almost always it is nothing but a rumor, with no fact involved at all, just a lot of hot air concocted by some lunatic in hope of stirring up the pot a bit. I thing we have enough real problems to deal with and hope the rumor mill will someday slide back into oblivion, where all these false statements belong. SCORE SAN FELIPE -The 16d, Annual SCORE San Felipe race is on tap for March 1-3 and, time permitting, you will read the entire story here in this issue of Dusty Times by ace reporter Judy Smith. Over 200 entries will be on hand and the racing should be hot and heavy, as usual. There are 12 Trophy Trucks ready to race, 29 cars in Class 1 and 25 cars in Class 10, making surely for a hell of a race. A few items worth mentioning are: Corky McMillin is entered at the young age of 73. His sons, Mark and Scott are racing also, all in Class 1 and always a threat. We have brothers racing, boy, do we have brothers. The Herbst boys Ed, Tim (Trophy Truck) and Troy (Class 1) are guaranteed to be in the fight for their respective class wins as are the Greer brothers, Bruce, (Trophy Truck), Glen, (Trophy Truck) and Thomas, (Class 8). Darren Skilton is entered in his first race with his Kia Trophy Truck, Scott Steinberger is running his Trophy Truck, Jesse Jones is running Class 1 this season, Ron Dalke has moved &om SCORE Lite to Class 10 and David Ruvalcaba is running his Honda XR650 in Class 30 after winning Class 21 the _last two seasons. And, racing is glad to welcome Bekki Freeman back into the fold, now driving her Jimco. Bekki won the 1600 championship in 1998 and 2000 and was second in 1999. As usua~ we're hoping for a succe.ssfuL and safe race. · AL FIAG - REVISITED -On March 31, 1997 the off road racing mmunity lost it's most dedicated member and booster of our sport. Jean Calvin left us here on earth to carry on in a far better place and we know she left us peacefully, slipping away early in the evening of the 31". Jean enjoyed racing very much, both as a participant or as a spectator and she founded Dusty Times to allow more people to be aware of what we do and how we do it. She dedicated this newspaper to the racers, and to this day we try to fulfill her wish of mentioning as many racers names in our articles as we can and to print as many pictures as we can. So, as you go about your business on March 31, take just a short moment to remember Jean and all of her love for the sport and all those connected to it. Amen. ADELANTO GRAND PRIX -The Desert Vipers Motorcycle Club and the Best In The Desert Racing Association collaborated for the 22nd running of the Adelanto Grand Prix. The course was 12 miles in length, running through the streets of Adelanto. Each race had a one hour time limit and the Pro Race was one and a half hours long. The criteria for a true "Grand Prix" must include a course run on pavement as well as natural terrain and must include water crossings and man made jumps. Make the event a must for next year as there is fun and excitement for all, motorcycle and quad dealers were on hand, lots of food and beverage vendors, grandstands for the water crossings and the jumps and there were free concerts both days. There were over 2000 racers and an estimated 35,000 spectators crowded around the course. Larry Roeseler was the Grand Marshal of the event, as well as a participant and spent much time signing autographs. Franco Acerbis of Acerbis Italia fame also was on hand, having flown in from Italy and was warmly greeted and saluted by all in attendance. This is the first year that BITD has sanctioned this event and we assume it will only be bigger and· better next year. LEDUC AND SKYJACKER - Received a nice color page of Curt LeDuc and soi: Kyle, announcing a sponsorship agreement with Skyjacker Suspenstons. Curt runs with CORR ·in the Pro 4 Division in his Ford 4x4 and Kyle runs a Ford Ranger in the Pro Lite Division. Youngest son, Todd races a mountain bike in downhill racing and we wish them all well in their 2002 endeavors. MCHAEL GAUGHAN AWARD -We were glad to hear that Jim Conner received the Michael Gaughan award for 2001, given each year by CORR to the person who has given a lifetime to the sport of Page 6 · COWRADO IDLL CLIMB ASSOCIATION Barb Vahsholtz, President (719)531-3642W/(719)687-9827H P.OBox8286 Colorado Springs, CO 80933 (719) 653-8449 CORP P.O.Box392 Calexico, CA 9223 2 Hector Cerecer 011-52-<55-66-4458 CORR LUCAS Oil PROANDSPORTSMANSERIES Championship OH Road Racing 192 N.

TECATE SCORE SAN FELIPE 250 Five In A Row For Ashley And s·mith By Judy Smith Photos: Jim Ober, Byrle Moore, Art Eugenio, RT Springman, Ed Filijan & John Rettie, Trackisde Photo Dave Ashley anfi Dan Smith drove a dream race in their Ford Trophy Truck to win the San Felipe 250 overall, finishing in front of everyone including the bikes. Dave Ashley and Dan Smith teamed in their Ford Trophy Truck to take the overall victory at SCORE'S San Felipe 250. This time they beat everybody, includ-ing some very fast bikes, doing the 227 miles i:n a time of 3:45:07. Their average speed was a very quick 60. 7 miles per hour. This year's course was a long loop that traveled from the arches northward, roughly par-alleling Highway 5, to the neigh-borhood of Three Poles. Then the trail turned westward and ran parallel to llighway 3 until it-reached the Borrego area. From there the racers ran on the old road that drops down to the north end of Diablo Dry Lake, but they didn't head out onto the smooth, fast lake, instead stick-ing to the road that runs just on the eastern border of the dry lake. O_11ce they hit Zoo Road, or Morelia Junction they turned onto Morelia Road and traveled southward to the top of Hustamote Wash. They popped out of the wash on the old Puertecitos Road, then after a short distance, turned westward again and up through Chanate Wash. Once through it they curved southeast, and dropped into the infamous Matomi Wash, which carried the back to the old Puertecitos Road. The course went northward on the old road for a while, and then snaked off to run between the old and new highways, then crossed over, ran through the dump, and back into San Felipe to finish at the arches. There was plenty of fast stuff to entertain the big trucks and unlimited cars, but lots of tricky whoops and buried rocks to get careless drivers into trouble. The sand was soft enough to stick the unwary, and it was_ even possible to get lost, though the course was well marked and well worn-in, so it took a little doing to get lost for long. Pre-race festivities included the contingency roll-through on the melacon on Friday. Although the weather was windy and a bit nippy for San Felipe, the atmosphere was still cheerful and upbeat. Weather reports foretold more wind for race day, and the driv-ers liked the sound of that, though spectators were digging deep in their luggage for heavy jackets and long pants. The bikers and quad riders started at 6 a.m., and then the first Trophy Truck took off into the desert at 7:30. It was chilly, and the promised wind showed up on schedule. There were 11 Trophy Trucks running, a 12th entered weeks before the race, was Jim Baldwin's Ford, which had come to a bad end at Laughlin and was apparently not ready on time for this race. Bruce and Glenn Greer had their Dodges entered, and Bruce had drawn the first starting number. Their trucks are both ex-Walker Evans' vehicles, as is the Class 8 Dodge their brother, Tim, was driving. Darren Skilton had his new Kia Trophy Truck, looking more like an SUV than a pickup, and Gus Vildosola's new Ford was also there, in the familiar Vildosola colors. Bruce Greer had the ~orst kind of luck, and took a wrong turn before he'd gone many miles, and apparently lost sight of the · course all together. It was a long time before he was back on track again, and his first-on-the-road advantage was gone. In the mean-time, George Ibarra's truck gave up before going 85 miles. At that point, Ed and Tim Herbst were leading in their Ford, with about five minutes on Dave Ashley in another Ford. Ashley, who'd been unable to drive at Laughlin due to an intestinal ailment, seems to be fully recovered now, and was being "patient". Scott Steinberg-er ran third about a minute back, in his Ford, and Glenn Greer had-his Dodge in fourth place. Gus Vildosola had hit a rock with his new truck, and took out the third member, so he was done for the day, his truck's debut shorter than Gus wanted. Josh Baldwin's truck also disappeared early. And Darren Skilton's Kia had an exotic problem.

Page 12 April 2002 of them got to flapping around and tore a hole in his radiator, and by the time he'd fixed things he was running with the 10 cars. He finished 12th in his Jimco. Jesse Jones, who's switched from a Class 8 truck to a Class 1 Jimco, had electrical problems. At one point the car just quit. They fi-nally cut the wires and rewired ev-erything, but that took a lot of time. He finished 11th. Michael James had his new V 4 powered Jimco out for the first time, and came home a fine ninth place. Corky McMillin, racing for the first time since he had two back surgeries, had a fairly uneventful day in his Chenowth, though co-driver, Brian Ewalt, who did the second half, said it "felt like it has three inches of travel in the back." They had one flat, and finished eighth. Ron Brant, in one of the few Porsche powered cars, a Jimco, said he hit a ditch and did a big wheelie a few miles before the finish. He was scared the wind would catch the car and flip it ver, but it landed safe yon its wheels and went on to finish sev-en th. He says he needs more horsepower. Cesar Fuentes and Enrique Bujanda, in a V6 Chevy powered Chenowth Millennium, said it was an "awful course, but a perfect day" and they finished sixth. Ronny Wilson rolled his V 4 Scat powered Jimco when he hit the same rock that tore an arm out of his brother, Randy's car. Randy was still there to see the incident. Ronny lucked out and landed on his wheels, losing al-most no time and then went on to finish fifth. Dale Ebberts and Ernie Castro, Jr. had their Toyota powered Jimco in top form, and they avoided flats and other prob-lems, to finish the day in fourth place. They said this car is a lot more fun than their 1600 car had been. Troy Herbst said he had a great day in his Truggy and that he loves San Felipe, but he had flats. And he finished in third place, about three and a half min-utes behind second place. Gary and Mark Weyhrich shared the driving in their Jimco and found it more comfortable than their old car. They said they got only 5500 rpms out of the motor, but still were able to pass people in the sand washes. Said Gary, "I like the V6!" They finished second, only 27 seconds behind first place. Robert Lofton started the day and Mike Julson did the second half of the driving in their Jimco. They had no trouble at all, and decided this is "the nicest race car we've had." At the finish line some-one pulled a big stick out of a front tire and it immediately started to go flat, the only tire trouble they had all day. They were second overall behind Ash-ley and Smith, and in front of all the bikes. Their time was 3:47:29, for an average speed of 60.08 miles per hour. Class 10 started next, with 27 cars, and a big assortment of tal-ent. Jose Canchola, Will Akwari and Charles Lathrem all disap-peared early, and Dave Sundquist went out quickly also, with a blown motor. Chris Harrold had his Honda powered J imco in the lead at Mile 86, with Eli Yee about a minute behind him in his Jimco. Running third at that point was Ray Croll in his Chen-owth Millennium, and Harley Let-Dusty Times

Well, a couple of them.had tangled early and were now ptetty far back. Sean Sessa, in a Jimco, tried to pass Jason Hunter's Dunrite at Mile 2o. Hunter got out of shape, and the two cars touched while he was not moving in a straightforward direction. He flipped over. Sessa stood on the brakes, but his mo-mentum carried him up and onto Hunter's car. Both drivers were okay but they were unable to dis-en tangle the cars by themselves, and waited 45 minutes for one of theit crews to come in with a four wheel drive vehicle and get them separated and upright again. They both went on, but Hunter must have had some damage, be-cause he was the last in the class to finish, just before the finish line would have closed, at nine hours and 55 minutes. He was Chris Harrold, after leading early, broke an axle in an area inaccessible to chase crews, and didn't have a spare. He radioed his crew and they found a good buddy in a 5-1600 car to take the axle to him. They tie-wrapped the axle/ c.v. setup to part of the cage so it wouldn't rattle around, and went on their way while Harrold waited. Once he got the ·axle, and gave the 5-1600 a shove so it wouldn't be stuck, he made the Dusty Times John Griffin drove "really hard" in his AM General Hummer, and except for being lost for a while, had no trouble, and took the Stock Full win by just over two minutes. repairs and went on. But he got himself struck and lost a bit more time. He finally finished in 16th place, with a time of seven hours and four minutes. Mike Sandoval and his Mee~ had already lost about 40 min-utes at Mile 86, and then had more problems, finishing their day in 15th place. Mark Hutchins and Kevin Soder had a day they'd probably rather forget. They had three flats on rheir Jimco, lost a trans c6oler, lost their belts and lost an ignition pickup, to finish in 14th place. And Tony McLaren came all the way down from Or-egon to race his Penhall, but didn't have a terrific day either. He got to just before Morelia Junction and a wheel broke and rolled him over, leaving him up-side down on the course. Some handy spectators uprighted him quickly, and he said nothing was hurt but his pride. He finished 13th. Martin Christensen ran his BMW powered J imco up near the front of the pack early in the day, but then he lost an hour later on. And right as he got to the finish his motor "stopped running" for unknown reasons, and he used_ the starter motor to get across the line in 12th place. Ron and Travis Brookshire had their new Jimco out for the day, but had some early trouble that cost them a half hour or so. They got to the finish line in 11th place. Rick Ellison started the day in his Chenowth Millennium and looked good at Mile 86. Then he handed the car over to Bill Hemquistwho had a flat among other things. By the time he got to Mile 155 he'd lost second, third and fourth gears, and had to navigate Matomi Wash with just first and fifth. Somehow he made it back to the April 2002 Don and Ken Moss came south from Sacramento to race at San Felipe for the first time in their Ford Bronco, and took the Class 3 win. finish, in 10th place. Sean Sessa, who got into the tangle with Ja-son Hunter, didn't have any other big problems during his day, and finished in ninth place, still about an hour down. Will and Jerry Higman teamed to drive their Kreger chassis and had to dei!-1 with three flat tires along the way. They were eighth at the finish, only five seconds behind seventh place. Sam Hilfiker and David Marini lost about 20 minutes during the day with their J imco, and then finished in seventh place. Whit Courtenay and Steve Harvey shared the driving in their Jimco. Courtenay, who did the second half, found himself stuck behind some stuck cars in a wash, and had to get out of his car to get things moving again. They were . sixth at the finish line. Richard Beck drove all the way in his Jimco, which is actually a beam car (more like a SCORE Lite). But his front beam is modi-fied with "a new type of front arm system" of Beck's design. He spent ten minutes high-centered in Matomi Wash, and got going again with the help of some lo-cals who were spectating. Beck, who drove all the way, finished in fifth place. The team of Steve Melton and John Herder had one flat tire each as they piloted their Jimco in fourth place. Another solo driver, Ray Croll; had one flat tire on his Chenowth in Chanate Wash, but otherwise ran a clean day to finish in third place, 24 minutes in back of the winner. Still another driver who drove alf the way, Smith Schmidt said "I had too much fun!" in his Chen-owth. He gave his navigator, teen-Continued on page 14 l!?¥s:IJ® The Suspension Company. Page 13·

;-In Memorium On March 31, 2002 it will have been five years since Jean Calvin sl.ipped away from us and went to a far better place. Dusty Times was her creation, and along with off road racing it was one of the greatest loves in her life. After Jean died, we received so many tributes from people all over the world praising her love of the sport and Dusty Times and reading them again and again brings back so many wonderful memories. I am especially fond of the three particular tributes, which are set forth below. On this fifth anniversary of her death we hope you will all keep a good thought for Jean and remember her as a person who did so much for our sport for so many years. Jean is sorely missed by her off road family and we know she still looks over us. Joh,n, 13. Cal-Y/#1/ A Little Dissertation About Jean Calvin, Off Road Icon, Idol and Hero Jean was skating in Europe when a dashing young Air Force man swept her off her feet. Returning from Europe she and John were married on September 22, 1956 and made · Jean Calvin's last checkered flag came on March 31, 1997. A slip and fall ended the ca-reer of an outstanding lady whose presence had an influ-ence on everyone associated with off road racing. Jean was the. distinguished editor/pub-lisher/gofer/writer/ad seller of the bible of off road racing, Dusty Times. While she fo-cused on the buggies, cars and trucks, she had the utmost re-spect for the A TV and bike racers. When I first started to at-tend·the SCORE races, it was to party and to find out to what awful inaccessible spot Morgan Malacca was sending me to pit for him. At that time Jean was the editor of SCORE News. Morgan made sure I knew who she was. Of course, I was so knowledgeable that I didn't even know what SCORE News was, however, if Morgan said I should-know who Jean was, I paid atten-tion. Over the years our friendship grew and grew and while we would only see each other at the races, I_ always looked forward to seeing her and her husband John. While Jean had the latest in racing news, John had some of the weirdest, funniest jokes I had ever heard. When I called Jean one day back in 1989 and told her I was having a 24 hour race, she promptly informed me that she and Judy Smith had won the first one Walt Lott of HORA had organized. An-other scoop down the tubes .. Jean had seen it all but wished me well.

How did she be-Thank you forever, come so devoted to a sport? Fud When did it happen? How did she convince her husband John to go along with her ob-session with off road racing? It turns out that Jean was an accomplished athlete from the git go. Sit down, because this will blow your mind. Jean was a professional ice skater, skating with Sonja Henie and Holiday on Ice. She went from ice cold to triple digit heat, from thousands in the arenas to a few hearty pit crews in the middle of nowhere.

As if by magic we have in-stant recall of the events that have made impressions on our mind. · One of the bits of information that has made an inde!ible impression on my mind, is that of Jean Calvin. For those of you that did not have the opportunity to know her as I did, this is the image that my mind brings up for me to remember. It was the running of the 25th SNORE 250 in Jean, Nevada. A.

Mike Julson and Robert Lofton are really pleased with their Jimco, which has a carl:Jon fiber clutch .and four-speed trans, and carried them to the Class 1 win and second overall. Darin McGuffin and Tom Ditfield blew out a front shock on their Mirage, but kept it moving fast enough to tie for first place in Class 9. before the finish, and his time was 4:26:48, with an average speed of 51.2 miles per hour. It was exciting to see 13 Class 8 trucks lined up at the start and in this group most managed to get back to the finish line. But among those ou·t early were Tom Greer, who was calling for his crew be-fore he could have gone 50 miles in his Dodge. And also Mike Doherty, who got abut 70 miles into the race before he broke an upper and lower front balljoint on his Chevy. Kurtis Kupiec, in another Chevy, reported a bro-ken rear axle housing, and asked for his trailer early in the morn-ing, and Dave Raimonde, in still another Chevy, also went out early. Juan Lopez and Roberto Ruiz, a team from _Tecate in a Bronco, were also finished in the early stages and so were Jeff Stowers and Jeff Broughton in a Ford FlS0. Of those who kept moving the lead belonged to Nick Vanderwey, who had his Chevy in front at Mile 86, with ·about three min-utes on Curt LeDuc in the old Class 6 Jeep. Joe Patelli was third in his Blazer. Running last, after losing a couple of hours, was Scott "Scooby" Maloney, in a Chevy. Maloney is in the Air Force and has been stationed in Tucson for eight years. He recently got his "shippirtg out" orders, and learned he's to be re-deployed to Texas. He's been a part of an off. road forum on the Internet (El Chismoso, affectionately known as "The Cheese") and when he told them of his new orders, they reacted strongly.

Knowing that Scooby might not be anywhere near an off road race for years to come, they decided to send him to San Felipe. Accordingly, they raised about $ 2000 from within their membership, and then spoke to SCORE CEO Sal Fish, who came through with a discounted en·try fee. And Scooby went racing. He painted his Blazer red, white and blue in honor of the occasion. Maloney had a long day, but he made it to the finish line, to get a seventh place, making it in about nine min-utes before cut off time. Thanks to Cheesers, he'll be taking some fine memories to Texas with him. One of off road's canny veteran drivers, Beny Canela, teamed with Dennis Milner .and they brought their Ford back to the finish in sixth place. And in fifth it was Craig Corda, in a Ford.

He'd also had one flat tire, and was about an hour and 45 minutes be-hind the winning .truck. Rick Thomas and Keith Moore brought their Chevro-let out for the race, and they had a wheel come off in a sandwash. Still, tney got things together again to earn a fine fourth place. And, with evidence of at least orie flat bolted on his spare tire mount, Joe Patelli finished in third place.· Nick Vanderwey got his truck stuck in Huatamote Wash and Larry shredded a tire. They also had trouble making turns, and didn't re-alize until after they finished, that the left corner of their front bumper was bent in-ward in such a way that the left front tire hit it whether they were trying to turn left or right. They said they made a "lot of three point turns." They were second, about 19 minutes in back of first place. The team of Clive Skilton and Curt LeDuc had meant to have some fun with their Jeep, and each of them planned to drive half the race. But when "they were about two thirds of the way along the road they decided they had a chance to win, so Skilton gave up his seat and put LeDuc back in, because he's the quicker driver of the two. He ran .out of gas and lost about 20 minutes, but ' still stayed in front in their 12 year old car and took the win. Class 5 started next, and they all made it through Mile 86 except for Carlos Ayala who came back duo.ugh town early in the day on a tow strap. And Tom Brown, who'd been running third, but close to the others, dis-appeared somewhere later in the race and never got to the finish. Dave Cua had his bad luck on Friday when he pushed his car over his own foot in the contingency line. He had a big knot on to"p of it, .and was in some pain, but not enough to slow him down. lie had a three minute lead on George Seeley at Mile 86, an~ stayed in front the rest of the way. Seeley had carbu-re t:or trouble, anct it was sticking at high rpms. He also had a flat_ tire, and by the time things were fixed he was solidly in second place. He finished about a half hour be-hind Cua. Cua had only one bad mo-ment when the car stalled, about a mile before the fin-ish line. He said he went "bal-listic", but then he remem-bered to switch to his spare fuel pump. And the car fired right up and went on in good shape. to take the win. At that point his foot was not hurt-ing. The Class 7 trucks went next, and Hector Salazar, who is still driving a rent-a-truck from -Willie Valdez, was the first one to go out. He must· be anxious for his new truck to get finished. At Mile 86, Ernesto Cervantes had the lead in his Ford Ranger, and Craig Turner, in another Ford, was just five minutes behind him in second place. Perry McNeil, in yet another Ford, was already over two hours down. In the southern part of the course Cervantes disap-peared. That left Turner run-ning in front and McNeil making repairs. McNeil started the day by losing his brakes which he fixed with vise grips and tape. Then he broke a radius arm and fixed that. It got more compli-cated as the day wore on. He lost a starter, so took one off a pit person's truck, took it apart and cannibalized the necessary parts to fix the race truck's starter, and went on. Simultaneously he's had some fuel trouble, and after messing around with things for a while he discovered he'd lost one of his electric fuel pumps, so he switched to the spare. He also lost a trailing arm which a bolt broke, and that almost rolled the truck. It took another hour to fix that, but McNeil is pne of our finest on-course repair~ men, and he went on. He was still having fuel problems, , and couldn't figure it out for a long time, but finally dis-covered that the second elec-tric fuel pump had gone bad,' and he had to switch to the factory pump that came with the truck. All the time he was going through this he was pic-turing Craig Turner back in· Dusty Times

He had even less success further along the way, and was the only dnf for this class. The Moss brothers were racing at San Felipe for the first tini.e, and finding it a rough course for their truck. They didn't have any prob-lems and pulled gradually fur-ther and further ahead of Severson in the Jeep. But Severson didn't have any trouble either, except for the fact that he was slightly handicapped by his 2.8 liter engine .. Each team flattened one tire, but had no other trouble.

Solorzano and Pereyra pulled to the front and stayed there to take the victory. Flores had a late problem, and lost an hour, to finish in second place, about 48 minutes down. And Sarabia was third, less than a minute behind him. Solorzano and Pereyra had a tirne of 7: 18:20, and an average spe,ed of 31.18 miles per hour. The final group to take the green flag was the Sportsman Buggies, and all but one of them made it through the magic 86 mile marker. The one was Scott Batchelor who was out with un-known problems. And in front at Mile 86 was Roberto Aranz in a very good looking car that was ac-tually a SCORE Lite. He had about 13 minutes on the second place team of Ray Woodward and George Jackson in their elderly Georgia Peach chassis. Wood-ward was the starting driver. Be-hind them the rest of the pack were fairly close. Aranz, unfortunately, never got to the finish. Xavier Reyes, who drives a Baja Bug in this class, lost about three hours later in the day, and dropped back to finish in fifth place, with a time of 9: 26:09. And Tim Price had about a half hour's worth of problems that put him into fourth place in his buggy, with a time of 7:35:51.

WRC MONTE CARLO SEASON OPENER Sebastian -Loeb/Citroen DH&Running By Martin Holmes Photos: Maurice Selden Tommi Makinen and Kaj Lindstrom lost the Monte Carlo win to a political force, hopefully the WRC body will remedy the fault. The 30th season of the World Championship, 2002 model started less than two moriths af-ter the 2001 season closure, and in this short period of time there have been many changes in driv-ers and teams, many new regula-tions and lots of new knowledge on how championships are run. Most of the new things look pro-gressive, some don't seem to be. Monte Carlo was the usual mid winter mountain asphalt event but this year there was no ice or snow to contend with. This was the 70th running of the "Monte". Sebastian Loeb's dream of win-ning the Monte came true, but it was under a cloud, following a de-cision by the organizers to suspend a Stewards last morning two minute penalty against the team for servic-ing offences. Loeb's Citroen had led from hallway through the first day, in front of Makinen, who eased his pace, waiting for the penalty to be confirmed. This opening round of the 2002 season was full of drama for Citroen. All their WRC cars suffered engine failures (Loeb's, luckily on the shakedown run) and all seven Super 1600 Saxo cars retired with identical trans-mission troubles. New this year were changes .

The 45-minute service at days end were now to be conducted the following morning. To facilitate reconnais-sance, there were fewer individual stages than before, all except one, scheduled to be run twice. There was a limit of 60 entries and there was no Group N entries ac-cepted. Every car was either a World Rally Car or a qualifying vehicle in the new Junior World Rally Championship. When the entries closed there were 28 Su-per 1600's and the Col du Turini stage was to be run twice in both directions, in daylight and at night. The shakedown was held on Thursday instead of the usual Wednesday which meant consid~ erable difficulties for the promo-tional activities. There were press conferences and photo shoots, which clashed with each other and journalists who tried to at-tend every function found it was impossible to do. There were quite a few changes in the driver lineup ... Thomas Radstrom was driving in his first "Monte", in a Citroen and, un-fortunately he didn't get to the start of any stage. It was Citroen's first time at Monte Carlo with top line cars in 16 years. There was a new points system to un-. derstand. Of the seven teams en-tered, four nominated the maxi-mum number of three cars to be eligible for Makes points and the other three entered only the mini-mum, being their two regular driv-ers. (If you understand what I just wrote, you're a better man than I am). Ford was the only team to enter 2002 version cars, the en-gines substantially different, en-gine airflow -improved and the cars made lighter. In the weeks before the start, there were various changes in the entry list among the non-works drivers. Jesus Puras withdrew his Toyota for financial reasons, Di-dier Auriol was finally able to April 2002 First JWRC position went to Francois Duval and Jean-Marc Fortin in their Ford Puma, 17th overall as well. start in a Step 2 Corolla with a revolutionary new rear differen-tial system. Manfred Stohl changed his entry from Mitsubi-shi to Toyota. When Loeb fired up his Citroen for the shakedown and the block was found to be cracked. 10 hours-to change the engine before the rally starts! Leg 1 - 4 Stages -Asphalt -12lkms - It began badly for Cit-roen when Radstrom found his engine was not pulling properly and on the drive out to Digne the en-gine failed so he was out before he -ever started. Then, only 50kms fur-ther towards Digne Bugalski's en-gine started mis-firing and he real-ized that he had the same problem. Two of the three works Citroens were out, the third only continuing through the good luck of having engine trouble the night before. Panizzi was also having trouble. He had trouble starting and when Peu-geot worked on the car at the Digne Service Park, they changed the transmission, causing a 2m,10s pen-alty. The problem had been a hy-draulic failure. The World Cham-pion, Richard Burns was being very cautious in his new Peugeot, having not tested on dry tarmac before the event. On the first stage he hit a bank on the right side of the road, went down the hill on the opposite side of the road and, luck was with him as the car stayed on its wheels, there were few spectators around and there was a path right there that allowed him to regain the course. He lost 20 seconds but was happy to still be in the event. Sainz made fastest time on the first stage in front of Tommi Makinen and Colin McRae. Fanizzi was fourth quickest in front of Armin Schwarz's Hyundai. Solberg stalled his Subaru at the s~art of Stage 1 and had a half spin. Eriksson's Skoda had trou_ble with the gear-box sticking and he lost 5th and 6th gears. Auriol reached the end of the stage but had to retire with a faulty engine sensor. Stage 2 was cancelled because of spectator pressure. The stages were repeated and for a long time the teams did not know if Stage 4 would be run, but eventually it was. Freddy Loix crashed heavily when he mis-judged a double bend and crashed into a bridge. The stage was stopped for a while until the wreckage could be re-moved. Halfway through Stage 3, Sainz lost power steering and dropped to seventh. Makinen had a spin and Solberg was quickest on the third stage. Emanuele Dati slid off the road, spectators helped put the car back on the course, tearing off the drivers door in their anxiety to help, but the car was withdrawn at service. Errani's rented Octavia was · slowed with steering problems and Oliver Burri retired with wastegate failure. Thiry was hav-ing rear suspension troubles, Stohl punctured a rear tire and Marco Menegatto retired his Toyota when he went off the road. On Stage 4Hyundai lost Schwarz when he dropped a wheel into a ditch and wrecked the suspension. Gardemeister hit the same ditch but only suffered a puncture, the mousse keeping the tire up. On Stage 4, Loeb beat them alL He was more than a quarter minute faster than the next fast-est driver, Fanizzi, and, having already been fastest on the Sisteron Stage he stretched his lead to 36. 7 seconds! Markko Martin lost some time when the engine management sys-tem was inadvertently turned to "safe" mode which severely re-duced the boost pressure. Delee-our lost 15 seconds when the brake pedal became soft, Burns had an ignition warning ligh coming on and off and many were having trouble selecting the cor-rect hardness of tire compound and that problem continued into Saturday. In JWRC, drivers in three dif-. ferent makes. of car led on the first three stages. The main disas-ter was trouble for the Citroens, it seems all the Saxo's retired with broken studs locating the new-type flywheel, although the young Spanish driver, Sola, was leading after the first stage. 12 of the 2 7 starters had retired by the end of the third stage. Alejandro Galanti went off the first stage twice, then again on the next stage. "The only ice in my coun-try is in whisky" he quipped. Gwyndaf Evans had a good first stage (6th) but he went off the road on stage 2. The only Opel on the rally was crashed on the first stage by McShea. Kazuhiko Niwa retired on the.first stage and Marc Blasquez completely lost his brakes on the first stag.e. Stenshome's Peugeot broke a throttle cable, loss of fuel pres-sure caused the engine to quit and then he lost 4th gear. Galli was speeding up and overtook vari-ous drivers on each stage and had to bump Kanga's Suzuki to per-suade him to move over. Leg 2 - 6 Stages -Asphalt -132kms - Even before the first stage of the second day, Errari retired his Skoda with tranny troubles. Like the day before, there were clear conditions on the stages though there were many slippery places where the surfaces were damp. In the inverse running order, Markko Martin was first on the road, al-ways risky due to spectators still Dusty Times

Toni Gardemeister and Paavo Lukander were 10th overall in their good looking Skoda Octavia. Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena took the Monte win but they really should have been in the second spot. Ninth overall position went to Francois Delecour and Daniel Grataloup in their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. walking on the road looking for a better vantage spot. Panizzi was sec-ond on the road and Peugeot was happ)'. with the way things were go-ing. On Stage 6 conditions were tricky. Eriksson had problems with the engine cut system, he had to use the throttle to balance the engine revs every times he changed gears. On Stage 7, Harri Rovanpera dis-appeared in his .Peugeot when he hit a rock and broke the steering. Then, Roman Kresta, in the third works Skoda retired after hitting a guard rail in a left hand corner. Sainz and Solberg both slid off the r;oad on loose gravel and damaged their cars lOkms from the end of the stage. Solberg had power steer-ing failure and incurred a 20 sec-ond penalty leaving service. Sainz survived with a broken wheel. This was the same stage as the last one on day 1 and Loeb attacked again and took another 10 seconds off Makinen. From now on the rally was go-ing to be based on the Turini stages. The roads were damp and Maki-nen found the Pirelli tires were working great, in two stages he re-duced Loeb's lead from 46 to 26 seconds. It seemed that Makinen's tradition of chasing Lu Llie finish was going to happen again. Colin McRae's tenure in third place was threatened when his seat mounting failed and he lost nearly half a minute. With two stages to go Colin McRae was now only 2.5 sec-onds ahead of Gronholm, but Panizzi could see how it was the Fords could be so fast. Eriksson found his Skoda was undrsteering badly as was Thiry's Peugeot. Dele-cour had a problem with his cen-tral differential and spun and Solberg also spun a had a slow leak-ing tire. Makinen was delighted with "the right tire!" Loeb was holding onto his lead but he knew-it was not only excellenc in driving which would provide the victory. Now came the two final stages of the day , the same as the last two in the Turini region, but in dark-ness and in cooler conditions. The damp patches initially turned icy, the challenge more pronounced than ever. Loeb gained his revenge on Makinen on Stage 10, but Maki-nen closed the gap back to 28.2 sec-onds at the end of the leg. McRae dropped to fifth with engine trouble, the car was on three cylin-ders for half the -stage and l; brother Alister slid into a wall and also fell back.

MOJAVE DESERT RACING, INC. Wild wash 250 By Sheryl Cannon Photos: Alan Madden & Ken Drylie, Trackside Photo Richard Boyle turned a 41 :57 for openers af!d he stayed in the Class 1 lead for the duration, first overall ain't bad either. Billy McCool and Jim_my Hook hooked up in the 1600 class and ran in the front or near the front all race long, a nice win for the season's start. MDR kicked off its 2002 series on Superbowl Saturday, February 2, in Barstow. The weekend action lived up to the hype, with the racing proving "Wild" and the football "Su-per". The two events also posed a study in contrast, with MDR's con-test a season opener and the NFL's . the season finale. And on the topic • of stunning upsets, who would have thought that the weekend of "The Game", the bigstorywould be "Check-ers." That's right. Off road's notori-ous bad boys, in their 26th year of existence, were all the rage. Checker Champs reigned supreme in no less than three divisions, led by the race's overall winner Richard Boyle. If an MVP award had been handed out for the day, chances are those hon-ors would have been bestowed upon Tom Koch, who owns both the win-ning and overall third place vehicles. The two Koch machines were dialed to perfection on a moneymaking mis-sion. George Seeley gave the Checkers their second win of the day, when he won a hard-fought battle to take first in Class 500. Billy McCool and Jimmy Hook teamed uo for the Checkers third win, when that duo proved best in Class 1600. lf"Wild Wash" is any · indication of things to come, it's go-ing to be one hell of a year for the Checkers. Now, on to the recap. Keith Cun-ningham, of Class 100, led a parade of 83 vehicles to the starting line.

MAGNA FLUX With ~o traffic or dust to deal with on his initial loop, Cunningham flat out flew (38:55) to the day's fastest lap time. Richard Boyle was second underway, and continued racing in that position into Lap 3. At that point, Cunningham made a prema-ture exit, and Boyle took over com-mand. Four of his classmates tried to ~ling to the new leader, but Boyle ouicklv opened up a 10 minutf' :ici-vantage.

With the exception of some transmission problems, it was a good run for James, who said it was his "maiden race in this car." George Seeley turned in his usual strong performance to place first in Class 500. Seeley described his only trouble as "a flat that actually re-sulted from a broken rim." Seeley, who also claimed his division's fast lap honors (46:26), took sixth over-all with a 4:58:36 (45.8 mph) clock-ing. Tim Criswell finished six-plus minutes back of Seeley, despite rac-ing with no clutch on the final loop. Tim and John Criswell combined to place runner-up in 500 and 10th overall, while breaking in a "brand new car." It was a long way back to Tony Burton, near third and final Class 500 finisher. Gary Alan Will-iams fell shy of completing his six lap assignment, but' averaged a healthy 43.3 mph for the five loops he did polish off. It was a rather trying week-end for Mr. Williams, who blew a tranny in practice Friday and an-other one entering Lap 6 on Satur-day. In Class 1600 action, there was a spirited duel for the top spot. Enter-ing the white flag lap, the aforemen-tioned Billy McCool held a precari-ous 12 second lead over John Ken-nedy. McCool never did make loose from his ultra-game classmate, but he held on nonetheless to win 1600 by two minutes and change. McCool .and teammate Jimmy Hook finished in 4:59:16 (45.7 mph) to place sev-enth overall. The team of Kennedy and Frank Wagner grudgingly settled for second in class and eighth over-all. The latter duo did emerge victori-ous in the battle for division fast lap time, thanks to Wagner's 47.39 sec-ond loop. Of the seven remaining Class 1600 starters, five went the dis-tance and secured top 20 finishing positions. Max Hanberg placed third Dusty Times

In fact, a 20+ minute victory over Andrews seconds was all that separated Mike Harvey and Robert Mauritzen. That minuscule difference, however, gave Harvey a fifth in 1600 and 13th over-all, and placed Mauritzen sixth and 14th. Art Velasco Jr., who completed the 1600 scoring, finished seventh in class and 17th overall. Eric Heiden powered his way to victory in Class 800, while also secur-ing himself a top 10 spot in overall scoring. Heiden's final time of 5:03:18 (45.1 mph) was the ninth best clocking on the day, and carried him to an authoritative win over Josh Klenske. Klenske, who finished a very distant runner-up, did manage to beat Heiden.for 800 fast lap honors (48.31). No small feat, considering his list of lost or broken parts il)-cluded two brake calipers (both rear), rear hub, drive plate, axle, rear disc and hat, wheel and both bed sides. There were haif a dozen starters in Class 1000. The calendar may have changed, but the son remains the same in the division annually domi-nated by Whit Courtenay. Frank Omboli jumped out to the early lead, and held a seven minute advantage after Lap 2. And speaking of Lap 2, David Callaway secured Class 1000 fast lap honors (42:38) oh that same loop. But by the end of the day, it was once again Courtenay who had emerged victorious. Despite a nearly one and a half hour final lap, Cour-tenay still reached the checkered flag 35 minutes clear of the Omboli en-try, which placed runner-up. Courtenay's final time of 5:32:11 (41.2 mph) was good for 15th spot O\_'erall, while Omboli's clocking proved 18th on the day. A field of five faced the starter in Class 550 action. Mark Dee started first and was leading on track after Lap 1. Jeffrey Sack held the lead on the clock, and after posting 550 fast lap time (55: 17) on the second loop, he also had made his way to the front. Sack pad9-ed his lead during the middle laps and withstood the chal-lenge of Dee and John White to score the Class 550 win. Sack arrived at the finish in 5:52: 18 (38.8 mph), giv-ing him a 16 minute margin of vic-tory and 16th place overall. Dee (19th overall) wound up a clear cut second, 50+ minutes ahead of Josh Roark. Roark and Joey Hoert combined for a third place finish, and completed the Class 550 scoring. In Class 725 action, Rqn Smith's team ruled the day. Smithjumped out to the early lead, with five class-mates in pursuit. On Lap 2, J.C. An-drews forged into the lead. Andrews, and his relief driver Rod Fantelli, continued to show the way until Smith's replacement, Dick Susag, re-established the lead during Lap 4.

soap Box ... The Cost of Doing Business? For 13 years I have been a part of the big show, SCORE, as a contin-gency company. We have gone to all the SCORE Mexico races, San Felipe, Baja 500, 1000 and 2000. The racers have come to know that Parker Pumper will be in contingency and they can get supplies they need at the last minute. At the recent San Felipe race, we let you, our customers, down. Crossing the border into Baja used to be a friendly wave and you were on your way. Then the border officials asked for stickers, a hat or t-shirt. Changes started a few years ago when we were required to pay fees to the officials in the city where the race was held. These were for work permits or local taxes. Now it is a 20% duty and tax on everything we want to take down. It do~sn't matter if it is pre-sold and only to be delivered, to be displayed, or simply to take in case someone needs it. It doesn't matt~r that the majority of what we well is taken back to the United States. They still want 20%, at the border, of the value of all products we have in our possession. We· are willing to pay fees to do business in Mexico, but we need to know how much, in advance, and it has to be reasonable to the amount of profit involved. Yes, for years we skated by and ~ade it to the race. We could hide everything and take the chance on not getting caught, but also risk having everything confiscated. Not any more! I drove to the Mexican border to go to the San Felipe race. We were driving a pick up truck and our camping trailer·. Our trailer was searched and we were told to pay 20% on all products. I chose to go home. We don't sell but a very small percentage of the products we take, the majority of it goes back home with us. We don't raise our prices when we go to contingency and there is not that type of profit built into our pricing. We go to the races to showcase new products, see old friends, and to be there for anything our customers need. After we pay for gas, hotel rooms, contingency, donations and awards, we usually break even on any money we may have made. We offer support to the promoter and the event and would like some assistance in crossing the border. The next SCORE race is the BAJA 500. We may see you there. Harold Nicks Parker Pumper Helmet Company one Man's Opinion We have heard from various sources of the prob-lems some contingency donors had trying to cross the border into Mexico for the SCORE s·an Felipe race. Some of the donors crossed with no problem at all, some had no more than a cursory inspec-tion by the Mexican Customs officials and some were told in no uncertain terms that they had to pay a 20% duty on everything they were bringing into the country, regardless of whether the items they were bringing in were for display only or were items they were ,;lelivering to their race customers, it seemed not to matter, you had to deliver the 20% duty in order to enter Mexico. I guess the fact that none of the merchandise the contingency donors are bringing into Mexico is made in Mexico, doesn't carry any weight. Many of the Mexican racers, and there are a lot of them and they are a growing number, have no other means of procuring a particular part fo:i;. their car and we know for a fact that many of the donors are bringing some piece of merchandise explicitly for a particular Mexican driver who has ordered said item prior in time and is anxiously awaiting it's arrival for use in that race. I was told many years ago that if Mexico didn't have a particular industry, such _as a , watch making industry, then there would be no import duty as there was no Mexican industry to protect. If that is still the case, please let us know where Nomex fire suits and Sway-A-Way shocks are made down there and we' 11 get off this topic post haste. We sincerely hope that some of the cities, Ensenada, Mexicali, San Felipe, etc., that host off road racing ac-tivity will talk to the Customs people, trying to make them aware of the amount of dollars that are being brought into their communities during a race weekend and that the levying of duty on small business would not seem to help the popula-tion at large. Let's hope that this situation is resolved and that the border crossings for the contingency people are made a lot easier, meaning affordable and that it all comes to pass before the Baja 500 comes around. :Your comments are welcome.

In the 1600 division, it was Jose Carlos Robles taking the win, flying around in third overall for the race. The 2002 inaugural race for CODE, the VW Autopartes 250, ·was staged the first weekend of February in the hills and desert just west of Mexicali. With 103 entries, the stage was set for another successful CODE racing season. Three laps for the Pros and two for the Sportsman class soon Tet all drivers know their strengths and weaknesses. Only 50 of the starters would complete the grueling course in the ten hour limit. One driver broke a finger, another broke a ball joint and then a spring plate. Another racer broke a torsion bar and later the front suspension. Still another destroyed a rear axle. And hey, all these guys were finishers. Remember I said it was grueling. Class 10, Class 12 and Class · 1/2-1600 all completed three laps in less than five hours. With a time of 4: 12:46 the overall and Class 10 winner was Elizandro Yee (name sound familiar?), A new class for CODE this year is the 1200 class. This class was created to lessen the disadvantage the P cars had running against the 10s. There were only three starters in the new 12 class and Luis Barragan (another familiar name), took the win. The Class 1/2-1600 winner was-Jose Carlos Robles. Three entries in Class 10 and only the winner, Mr. Yee , fres h from a trip to Laughlin the week before, finished. The other two DNFs tied for the second spot; they were Alfredo Torres, out of Calexico and Elias Canchota, his neighbor from across the border in Mexicali. In the new 12 class, winner Barragan, drove his 'Curry Fab' car to a trouble free finish of 4:41: 13 and again the other two entries, Mario Salazar from Chula Vista and Eduardo Gonzalez out of San Diego, DNF'd and tied for second. Barragan was the 2001 class champion. The 1/2-1600 class had 19 entries, but only six were able to finish. The winner, Robles, the 1400 champ last year, jumped to 1600 pro in 2002 and finished in the top spot of this very large, and fast class, with a time of 4:44: 12.

But, even with the roll-over and the broken finger he continued and finished in first place with a time of· 6: 16:08.

We started off 2002 running strong with the Bates running Fuds New Year's Eve race and taking a third in Class 9. Off to the SCORE Laughlin race where George Seeley won Class 5. Jimmy Hock had a little roll-ovet" trouble on Saturday but came back with a fourth in class on Sunday. Apparently Roger Byrd's big entry sprung a leak and was penalized and· had to stay tucked away for the rest of the race. Our Parker contingent was a bit larger with the club starting five cars. Tom Koch and Richard Boyle ran strong until the rotor cracked and Tom had to wait for Dennis Boyle to throw one at him as he passed. Fixed and making up time, a frqnt a-arm finally ended their day. Dan "the Man" Martin ran in the huge Pro Dirt 1600 class and lost his clutch at the start line but eventually got a great pace going to finish 16th. The Steeles were also running Pro Dirt 1600 and had a strong run going with Brian behind the wheel when he bottomed the car out in a rut so hard that he broke a vertebrae in his back. He continued to the next pit but his co-drivers weren't able to get there in time so Brian just iron-manned it for another 70 miles to the next pit where Scott was waiting to get in. As luck would have it the Krepz Bros. were also there and were able to lift Brian out of the car. This endurance run in pain kept the lasf year 1600 champions in the running and they were able to finish fourth in this giant class. racing history have two cars both been awarded a first place in the same class. Again pits were well manned with Michael Lee captaining the Three Poles pit with me, Gary Bates, Fred Nelson, Howard Anderson and Thumper McDowell on hand. The next two pits were both captained by the master of the mobile pits, Reverend Roy with help by V.P. Reese, Tony Tellier, John Zinc, Billy Robertson and Steve Holliday. Once again Tony Tellier hosted the annual tire meeting/ clam bake and it was a huge success. The Checkers welcome our newest survivor of the infamous "BLACK BALL" vote, Steve Scott. Wear your membership with pride Steve, welcome. Unfortunately, we also said goodbye to Ken Lane who was lost in a boating accident on Castaic Lake.

Very special thanks are extended by all Checkers to the other contributors of gifts and Air Bob Wright had too much fun and finished 25th in class. Pits were well manned with · Dick McCool taking the Main and Revenue Roy took Midway double pit and Marty Seefried took the one at Graham Wells. The next weekend we were off to Barstow for the MOR Wildwash 250. We had five cars entered in this race. Tom Koch ran his protruck and his 1 car with Richard at this one winning Class 1 ~nd taking third in class with the truck. George Seeley picked up the added traction he needed for the win off of Thumper and placed fo-st in class. Jimmy Hook placed first in class in his 1600 car. Victor Bussey was having some carb problems and finally was knocked out on the fifth lap with a broken torsion bar and Mike W.right wound up with a DNF after blowing his tranny. Mike ran wit!) John Murphy, both are new members with the club. Again we were out in full pitting force with the Rev. taking the Main pit as the captain, Marq Prince captain at A, Big John Files captain Pit B, Michael Lee captain at Pit C. Dave Pick made a surpris~ visit at the post race meeting and Thumper was awarded some type of an upgrade to complete certificate. Our next adventure took us to San Felipe where we had four cars running with three pits covered. Tom Koch was our first car to start and as luck would have it also to stop. Richard Boyle started in the 109 car and lost a motor somewhere about 35 miles off the start. Next off the line was the Class 5 champion George Seeley who ran a solid race and finished second in class. Jimmy Hook was running with Cash Vessels and finished up third in class. Our final car out was Tommy Dittfield and Darin McGuffin in Class 9; they had a superb run finishing first in class.

to myself, WOW, I haven't seen a desert race with this many entri"es since the 1980's. Over 200 cars! We started out the weekend Friday morning setting up in contingency. Gary, Sharon and Kara Hall, Tim Lindsay and myself were hoping to sign up a few more entries to our pit list. We ended up with ten total entries to support by race day. Thanks for Sheryl Cannon for arranging a prime spot in contingency! Also thanks to Jay and Dan from Whiplash for their hospitality in helping us locate spots to set up its. Team Inch: Our super boy Brad Inch, started second in line of 69 1/2-1600 racers in an attempt to grab the purse for the first Pro-1600 event. Brad encountered a few problems early on. He quickly got tangled up with the eight trucks that started in front of him on the goat trail. He then lost a power steering belt, did some aerial acrobatics by launching off a couple of cliffs and fought blinding dust. He then decided to put in Tommy Craig at the midway pit; Tommy took over the ride until a torsion bar let go later into the event. Day over. Team Randy Jones: Randy had experienced problems early in the event, a fan belt failed resulting in a cooked motor. Team Kenny Freeman: Kenny started the event charging hard until a bolt failed in his steering linkage, CORE midway fixed him right up and sent the 1600 racer on with Kenny's 16 year old son, Cody, at the helm. Cody finished up with a nice seventh place. Team 3g Davy Girdner: Davy started the event with Kevin Henrickson co-driving. Davy began to have shifter problems that would plague him all day. On Lap 2, Davy performed a driver's change and put in T.J. Craig and Ken Hazelbaker. TJ and Ken ran only a few miles before the little 1600 power plant went away. Team Roland Berry: Unfortunately, Roland's day was very short, having motor problems right off 'the starting line. Team Frank Wagner: It was reported that Frank lost a clutch on the second lap. Team Will/Jerry Higman: ·Will Higman told me he was running for Pro-10 points with his old 12 car while his new 10 car is being built. Will started the event and was surprised as to how competitive the older 12 car was! Will put his father, Jerry, in for some of the driving chores. The 64 year old did a great job driving, the team ended up with fourth in Class 10, fourth overall. Team 8 Ball: Dennis McCarthy's day started out well, saying "the truck seemed happy" after negotiating the 20 mile "goat trail". He was following an amber light in the dust on one of the many very high speed dirt roads, but didn't notice a quick chicane in the road, resulting in hitting a big hole at full speed. Tl}.e result was a crash hard enough to break a vertebrae in Dennis' back. The CORE folks hope for a speedy recovery for Dennis, hopefully we will see him at the Buffalo Bill's event. Team Vanderplog: Tom Vanderplog soloed the entire event, reporting no problems bringing his 9 racer into a nice sixth place. Ken Tapert: Ken also solo'ed the event in Rob Stapp's old 9 racer. This was his first ever event in a four wheel vehicle. Ken reported no problems to bring the 9 racer into the checkered in seventh place. Pits as follows: Main Pit: Staffed by Todd and Shirley Jorgenson, Bob Nosala, Sheryl Cannon, Ann Donaldson and myself. Not much action, we ate some du-st, put gas in Ken Tapert's car and monitored radio and positions. Pit Able Shea Crossing: Tim and Diana Lindsay, Bob Depew, Allison MacKenzie, Tom Foudy and family (a special thanks to these volunteers for running the CORE pit'and getting stuck with running the Whiplash checkpoint until the wee hours of the night!) This pit fumed out to be a busy one! Tim and Bob reported working on as many as eight cars at the same time! They were amazed by all of the carnage. Tim reported, "There were drivers walking out of the desert in every direction." Midway Pit: Jerry and Barbara Lawless, The Girdner Team, Tom, Tommy, Jeremy, Tim and TJ, Craig, Josh Capp, Steve McMullen, Ed and Ronnie Pedley, Kenny Gill, Jerry Eldman, Brian Zinni, Babe and Linda Jones. Midway did some gas, driver's changes 'and worked on Davy's ait:box. Graham Wells: Gary and Kara Hall, Ted Braxhoofden, Gary Lovin, Sam Dadies. Gary reported no major pit service other than moving a disabled racer off the course. Snore/Whiplash A VI 250: A handful of CORE competitors ran the AVI event: Todd Jorgenson: Todd's motor went away on the first lap. Davy Girdner: Davy described to me, "One long weekend". First they killed the pre-runner transmission, T.J. Craig driving with Kip Haselbaker riding. Davy held a strong third position the first two laps.

apart. But they were able to make it work again. Then he put the car onto its side on the dry lake but that didn't stop them, either. Finally, the brand new u-joint on the steering shaft came apart. Lesson 4: Sometimes b·rand new parts are a problem or cause another problem. I didn't get a report directly from the Baja Shops. Second hand information says they only made it 10 miles when the throw out bearing on the clutch came apart taking out the transmission. Lesson 5: I don't know what can be learned from this except "Stuff Happens." Next month's column will have three races to report on, the M.O.R.E. Balls Out 250, the MDR Ridgecrest 300 and SNORE's Buffalo Bill's 400. We are looking forward to supporting these races. Jim Clements lays out a fast and fun course and runs a good show. Ridgecrest is a near venue and, depending on the course that MDR lays out, it can be a fun place to race. SNORE's Buffalo Bill's 400 is another of the PRO 1600 races so there should be a very large field and, with the big hotels, Stateline is always a good time. Unfortunately, MDR and SNORE scheduled their races for the same day, April 12th. F.A.I.R. has the equipment and manpower to handle this because all of our members pull together to support each other. This is what the club is all about. It looks like there will be seven to nine pits between the two races and we will be at all of them. Its just too bad that some of us must choose one race or the other. I'm sure both promoters had their reasons for picking those dates. But, as was shown in January with the SCORE La\lghlin a'nd Whiplash Parker races, there are only so many racers out there. One race or the other will have have the entries they could have had. Somehow the promoters must work this out. A big F.A.I.R. thanks to Brian Hintz for rebuilding our third pit trailer. It almost required building a complete new trailer. Jerry Longo has volunteered to wire it up and Brent Parkhouse is going to paint it. Another example of F.A.l.R. members pulling together. Anybody out there that wants to get involved, and I mean really involved, in off road racing. Come to one of our meetings or check us out at one of the races. If you want to join us you will actually be "in the race". You don't need your own race car but you'll be part of the best racing team in the desert and get experience on every type of car from Unlimited Class 1 to Stock Trucks and everything in between. Meetings begin at 8 :00 p .m. on the first and third Wednesdays of every month. We meet at the Fullerton Dusty Times Radisson Hotel just off the 91 Freeway at Harbor Blvd. Check with the front desk for which room the meeting is in. You should also check out our website at Magnificent 7 Race Team By Stephen Stenberg, President Hello Race fans and pit crews alike! MAG 7 WILL RUN 50-MILE PITS FOR THE BAJA 500! I just wanted to get that out early. Now that I did, I can continue. Before I start the news though, I want to say two things. First, I want to take my hat off to all the men and women of our Armed Services that are serving their country both here and abroad. This is a time of great uncertainty with the war on terrorism and how long it might last? I know, from being in the Air Force for almost 16 years that being overseas can be lonely and difficult at best some days. So I just want to say that the Mag 7 Race Team salutes our veterans wherever they might be serving or retired. The second thing I want to say is thank you to all our sponsors for 2002. They are in no certain order, . John and Rudy from ORW in Kearny Mesa, CA., Jim from SKS Valvoline in Mira Mesa, CA., Steve from IMS Products in Riverside, CA., RANDY from GPR Products in Chula Vista, CA., John from Industrial Liquidators in Kearny Mesa, CA., Curtis from JDFAB in California, Stuart from Streamline Graphics (and Team Locos Mocos) in Lakeside, CA., Jeff from Red-D-Arc Welders of Kearny Mesa, CA., and Andy from · Encompass and DeWalt Tools in San Diego, CA. Thanks guys, for all you do for the Team! Mag 7 just returned from Baja where we raced the San Felipe 250. We started with six vehicles and two bikes. Exactly half of our entries DNF'd and the others finished well. Starting from the front was Ed Stewart of San Clemente, CA., in car #129 who didn't even start the race. Engine problems that morning were to blame. Next we had Carlos Ayala from Chula Vista, CA., in car #501 who experienced transmission problems around RM17 and was DNF. Our own Chuck Guy/Kevin Walsh from San Diego, CA., took ninth in class 1/2-1600. They were running with BFG for this race. Come on guys, support your team next time. Hector Salatar from Tijuana, BCN., in truck #701 broke his tranny at RM47, just three miles before our first pit and was DNF. In Class 8, it was Clive Skilton of San ClemenJe, CA., and Curt LeDuc that won their class in #809. Way to go guys! In Class 10, it was Steve Schmidt of Jamul, CA., otherwise known as "Smitty" by many who in car #1025 took second place! Way to go Steve! Steve works as the head salesman at Moto World in El Cajon, CA., and has been my friend since the mid 70's. Way back when Steve Sterner, Arne Gruner, Mickey Quaid, Rick Finger, Bobby Gallaway, Mike Harper, Adam Padilla from Competition Cycles, John Gregory (the same one that founded JT Racing), Rolf Tiblin and the other D-37/38 guys and myself raced in the open desert .. Steve hasn't raced in a buggy since he and his brother campaigned a Class 5 buggy over a decade ago. Good come back Steve and soloing it to boot! Tim Price and his brother in car #1401 took fourth in Class B, Sportsman Buggy. Great ride Tim. They both drive down from the Bay Area every yea-r to race just this event. How was your ride home for you four, stuffed in your Ranger Xtra Cab Tim? Their other pre-runner, a Toyota 4x4 fixed up by Penhall &cing, broke a tranny the day before the race. They left it at Wayne Newell's place at Pete's Camp. Wayne is our past Race Director, along with his wife Debbie. They are building a place in Pete's and can be ' found by looking for his semi truck that has Mag 7 Race Ream. printed on both · sides. In Class 21 Pro, we had two bikes entered. One was #lOlx, Eddie Zeller' s team from Coronado, CA. The other was Joe Dessrosier's team from Pacific Beach, CA., # 103x. Eddie races an YZ250 and Joe races an YZ250F. Eddie ran out of fuel right before Pit #3 after running the first two sand washes and onto Matomi Road, but still managed to finish third in class. Way to go Ed! Joe's bike was running poorly all day long until they found a clogged filter in the float bowel (i!, fuel filter in the Float Bowel, common Yamaha?) and then everything cleared up. But with just 14 more miles to go to the finish, the team crashed their brains out and drew a DNF for the day. Bad luck Joe. Mag 7 ran four pits, one every 50 miles or less apart from each other. We are going to do this for the rest of the bike series in Baja. For the Baja 1000 in November, we are currently talking with another well known bike and buggy/truck team to split the pits up. That way we can still offer the 50 mile pit option for those that need it. Speaking of fuels, I want to thank Bill Rodriguez and his lovely wife of 76 Race Fuel's Baja for all their support and help.

Page 46 Protruck Race Report SCORE SAN FELIPE 250 PROTRVCK WINNER: · STEVE BARLOW FORD #299 San Felipe, Mexico -March 2. Following a win at the Laughlin Desert Challenge just a few ·weeks ago, Steve Barlow caprured his second Protruck class victory this year at SCORE San Felipe 250 this past weekend. Barlow, of Temecula, CA was able to negotiate the rough and rocky Baja desert with a winning time of 4:26:48, besting the eight Protruck entries. The first three Protrucks all finished within 24 seconds of each other, and the first six finishers -within eight minutes!!! The race was tight all day long on the "dusty, rocky and technical course" Steve said. He was in the lead until about 20 miles· before the finish where he had a flat, which put him about a minute behind the second Protruck of Rick Johnson. Overcoming the \ downtime, he poured on the power in his Red Bull Energy Drink Ford Protruck, "It was the hardest I've driven the truck in a long time" Steve said. He made up the time, plus 14 seconds over the number two position. He knew the course would be really tough and technical but "When it was all said and done, it turned out to be our day." Rick Johnson #243, of Barstow, CA was the second Protruck to complete the event, and clocked in at 4:27:02 in his RJR, Inc. Ford. Rick said he "had a great race, but being stuck behind buggies made the course very difficult in the dust." He was "very cautious in the rocks" and held his position to the end with no flats on his Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's. he had a suspension problem about 25 miles before the finish and had to slow down to a conservative speed. Rick finished second by only 14 seconds!!! Third to the finish line and behind Johnson by only 10 seconds was the Chevy Protruck #255 of Alan Pflueger, of Hawaii. "Everything went great" Alan said. "The Goodyear tires were a big question coming into the race performance-wise, but they did an awesome job!" "It's great to know that the new Collins Motorsports Protruck can keep up with the two past champions! It was a really fun. race. 11 John Becker placed fourth, clocking in at 4:29:34. The race was good other than hitting a rock with the rear-end housing about five miles off the start -he lost about 15 minutes from stopping twice to put oil in his rear end, other than that he "had a great time. 11 Al Hogan #226, of Montana, was the fifth Protruck to finish the event. He had "A good trouble free run" except for a flat at the very end. He can't believe. how "competitive the Protruck class is. 11 This was his first desert race in his Protruck (besides Laughlin) and he's having an exciting time learning about his truck. • Placing sixth w a s Steve Olliges, Ford #296 from Las Vegas, NV. Steve states "the truck ran an absolutely fl.awless race, other than a broken shock at Mile 40. It's amazing how close they all finished, he said "we had an absolute blast!" Greg Hansen placed seventh in the Dodge #233 out of.San Diego, CA. "The truck was running really well and we pretty much had a flawless day, then we hit a rock and took out two tires, 11 he said. They were stuck with a broken jack and had to wait for pit support to get them going again, which put them back a good while. Greg finished in 5:42:56. Rob Reinerston, DNF.

We'll try to keep you updated on these three as the season progresses.
