CALIFORNIA CoNCOURS D' AUTOMOBILE-If you like Ferrari, and whether you own one or would like to own one, you can see a bunch of them at the Concours that is featuring the Ferrari Marque on June 23, 2002 at the Rainbow Lagoon ·Park in Long Beach, CA, next to the Convention Center. For more information call Maurice at 562-429-7151 or on line at RIM OF THE WORLD RALLY -The fourth round of the SCCA ProRally Championship took place in the mountain~ surrounding Palmdale, Ca. on May 3rd and 4th and, as usual it was well attended and a great success and, again, as usual, the weather was as close to perfect as you could get. It was the rhird consecutive overall win for the independent David Higgins, each win with a different co-driver. Visiting WRC driver Petter Solberg stated that the conditions here are very similar to the Acropolis and Cypress rallies, two of the toughest and most challenging rallies on the WRC schedule. A full report will be in the next issue of Dusty Times. Some of the winners in various classes are: David Higgins and Daniel Barrett in a Subaru WRX, taking the Open Division and the overall, second in Open was Mark Higgins and Michael Gibson in a Hyundai Tiburon, third in Open was the father/ son team of Karl and w;yne Scheible in their Subaru Impreza.

For more info, call 717-24 3-7 85 5 or A NEW ERA -As most of you know, Dusty Times has been giving a hundred dollar bill at selected races to the last official tinisher for quite a few years with no requirement other than being last. · However, effective with this issue, in order to win the Dusty Times money, you must be the last official finisher AND you must be a current Dusty · Times subscriber. 'Nuf said. RED FACE DEPARTMENT -In last months Trail Notes we noted that Craig Pearson had won the Street Legal Class at the MDR Ridgecrest 300.

On the third lap Scott Sellers was in for Stewart and they still led, Steinberger was down a few more minutes, Pavolka still in third, Cummings was still turning two and a half hour laps and Yoeman had left the charts. On the fourth lap Stewart was still way out in the lead, Steinberger had picked up a couple of minutes on him, Pavolka's lap time went a bit over two hours in third and Cummings cut almost an hour off his lap times, still in fourth. Then tragedy struck everyone but Stewart on the last lap, he wa_s the only one to come around, Steinberger, Pavelka and Cummings all disappeared from the scoring charts and the Ed Stewart/Scott Sellers combo took the Class 1 win as well as the overall, having no problems, just declaring the course really rough. Next to go was Class 10 and there were 13 cars ready and able to go.

Eric Gremm managed to get one lap in, a very fast 1:40: 11 but we never saw him again and so we give him the Sportsman -:fruck win by de-fault. As usual, I saved the biggest class for last. There certainly was a slew of 1600's. We counted 60 of them off the line and they too didn't have the best of days, 42% of them managed to get in their re-quired five laps. Eight of them never made it around for one lap, namely, Charles Sutton, Davy Girdner, Brian Crawford, Scott Webster, Michael Duenas, Tony Murray, Frank Wagner and Craig Forrest. As they came around at the end of the first lap it was Randy Jones in the lead, Bryan Free-man was second, a 111.inute be-hind, Rob MacCachren was in third, less than a minute out of second, Mike Malloy was fourth, less than 30 seconds out of third, C.J. Hutchins was fifth, 9nly nine seconds out of fourth and then came Kenny Freeman, running sixth and ·only five seconds out of the top five. Next came Brian Lo-gan, Bryan Anderson two sec-onds back of him, then it was Rick Boyer in ninth place and, rounding out the top 10 was B.J. Alm berg. There were 38 cars running behind this top 10 but many of them would .fall by the wayside before the day was over. The second lap for the 1600's saw four more drop from the scoring chart.

This was his second crash of the rally week. His first was in testing when his co-driver was injured, and there was 1nore. Carlos' teammate Colin McRae finished with a broken finger. Peugeot now hold as many championship points as all five other eligible teams to-gether with Marcus Granholm leading Panizzi by a single point in the Drivers Series. This was the fourth round of 14 in the 2002 World Rally Championship, and the sec-ond round out of six in the Junior World Rally Champi-onship. Run on classic moun-tain roads in the hinterland of Costa Brava and Costa Dorada in northeast Spain, · the event-was the second successive and the third out of five all-asphalt rallies this season. It was the second of five occasions this year with only a fortnight be-tween events. It was also th e second successive event i n which th e previous year's win-ner was absent, the first being Jesus Puras in Corsica, now Didier Auriol in Catalunya. And, once again, this was an event with long road sections. Apart from the Safari Rally in Africa, the Catalunya rally has the longest distance of any world championship rally, a sharp contrast to the previous event, Tour de Corse, which had the shortest. Changes this year included, for the first time; a cere1nonial start on the Thursday evening · on the main road leading to the seafront. TI-1en, the order in which the groups of stages were tackled was changed to· reduce the mid-rally movement of service vehicles. The first leg stages were therefore to be found in the Tarragon a region, the second and third legs in the Ripoll-Lloret-Vic region. A more controversial change was that th.ere were only two days for reconnaissance, although the FIA permitted three passes per stage. It seemed the orga-nizers had been listening to Carlos Sainz's advice. This was apparently supported by other professional drivers, that only two passes were necessary and so the organizers decided this would apply to everyone, whether or not they had done this rally previously. This led to an extra day of testing, and it was on this day that Sainz crashed and put his regular co- • driver of 14 seasons into the hospital with broken ribs, and, needless to say, out of the event. Most of the stages were well known even though the orga-nizers once again kept the de-tails secret until one month be-forehand. This led to a dra-matic moment when. the co-driver of Miguel Campos was caught on the rally route TWO months beforehand, which led to Campos losing his compe-tition license for a year. It was doubly ironic that the first time the stage concerned was to be used, it was cancelled. Other pe.ople also questioned about these matters. Martin Rowe had to cancel his Puma shakedown test, waiti11g for four hours for the organizers to consider reports that he had reccied excessively, only to discover there was an error in the information they were given. Rowe, however, had lost his chance to set up the car before the vent. Peugeot came to the rally with three previously used cars. Marcus Granholm remained the only team driver not to use the hydraulically controlled anti roll bar system. Ford had a team of unfit drivers. After Carlos' practice crash, Marc Marti substituted for Luis Moya and Colin McRae started the rally despite suffer-ing a broken left finger in Cor-sica. The team installed a sec-ond gearshift control system on the left hand side of McRae's car , so that he could keep his one strong hand for holding the steering wheel. Sainz and McRae had new cars, featuring revised roll cages and a spe-cially lowered seating position for McRae's co-driver. Tommi Makinen's conva-lescing co-driver, Risto Man-nisenm.aki had his official seat fitting session after Corsica but it was decided he would not compete either in Catalunya or in Cyprus. His introduction to Subaru high speed action would, therefore, not be until a gravel rally test in April, so reserve co-driver Kaj Lindstrom would take part on the next two events. Mean-while, the team had to re-pre-pare Makinen's Monte Carlo Dusty Times

Panizzi set off to win every stage, despite admitting it took him a while to "wake up!" Gronholm had a bad day, starting with a han-dling fault on the second stage. Colin McRae's co-driver, Nicky Grist, sitting close to the floor, said that it was not easy for him to get the right rhythm on the fast and twisty roads. McRae was changing gears with his left hand and manag-ing quite well. Louc spun on the sec-ond stage and Thomas Radstrom, driving his first event on asphalt in four years was gradually gaining confidence. Puras arrived at the end of a stage with brake fluid pouring out of the left rear caliper. On stage 3, die first run through the event's longest stage, Gronholm lost his brakes before half distance. Maki-nen lost transmission hydraulic pressure, Rovanpera had a tire tread fly off and Solberg braked so hard he actually twisted the brake pedal. Loix also had a tire tread fly off, Eriksson had power steering failure right off the start. Schwarz had to stop and change a tire and Puras had the other rear caliper let all the fluid escape. Bruno Thiry had to stop to change a tire , find-ing flames coming from the front hub and noticed when he drove away that the grass was now burn-. ing as well. Everything was happen-ing! On the second run through the stages things began to settle down but everyone complained about the gravel thrown up on the road surface by the cars passing earlier. Solberg had his throttle stick wide open, Alister McRae finished a stage on a rim, no tire and Gardemeister slid into a ditch and damaged the rear of his Skoda. Pozzo had dif-ferential hydraulic fluid leaking into the passenger compartment, and on stage 6, Makinen went off the road and finished the stage completely out of coolant. Radstrom retired after sliding off the road and wrecked the right rear suspension and Pozzo retired halfway through the final stage when oil dripped onto the turbo and the ensuing under hood fire made retirement a must. Blomqvist had alternator prob-lems on the run back to Lloret de Mar and the Skoda's engine finally stopped with no electrical power on the road just before the Barcelona area. Makinen reached Lloret but the team was worried about pos-sible damage to the engine caused by the overheating. So ended the longest day of the event, but the sec-ond day was bound to bring new challenges, 1nostly theses were ex-pected to be the gravel thrown on the road during the first day.

"The problem was not so much the num-ber of spectators, but the way the organizers allowed them to park their cars along the side of the stage.

1 I MDR'S RIDGECREST 300 Koch And Boyle Take A Tough one By Judy Smith Photos: Trackside Photo Whit Courtenay and Gene Brown teamed in their Toyota powered Jimco and with no problems to bother them, took the win in Class 10. Tom Koch and Richard Boyle teamed in their Jimco to take the win in the MOR Ridgecrest 300 by the slimmest of margins. Tom Koch and Richard Boyle are tough to beat on their home course at Ridgecrest, but this time someone came close. When the scor-e rs had checked and double-checked their winning margin was one second. Koch and Boyle teamed in their Tvpe IV powered single seat Jimco, and led for most oi" the day on a rugged and dus·ry 36 mile loop. The course, located north of Johannesburg and off the Trona Road, started and finished on Gasline Road just before it crossed the railroad track. Then it traveled fo a clockwise direction generally northward, then eastward and over to roughly parallel Randsberg Road for a while as it dropped into a southeasterly direction. A wan-dering trail then led from east to west and back to the Gasline Road, for a looong straight downhill ap- I proach to the pit area and the end of rhe loop. A new section, neared to avoid a piece of terrain desig-nated as "sensitive" gave new mean-ing to the word "rough" according to the racers. And since there had been no rain in a coon's age, it was very dusty with little wind to help. Mike and Dale Dondel bought a new-used Class 5 car, changed the paint scheme, took it to Ridgecrest and went home with the win. Clint Fisher and navigator Skyler Cadman piloted their four-seat Toyota powered Lothringer to the win in the Pre-runner Buggy_c_la_s_s_. ____ _ Page 20 On this particular race day it decided to be summer, and tem-peratures soared up into the high 90s, sending the pit crews ducking under the canopies and digging into the ice chests. The cars were flagged off the stan line at about 7:35 a.m., at 30 second intervals, though a couple of classes were sent off 15 seconds apart, apparently to shorte1i the time needed to get 'em all going, so a lead car wouldn't come around and run smack-dab into a car still in staging. Mike Dill had one troubled lap, but with three good ones, managed to take the victory in the Stock Mini Truck class. Tommy Koch was first off the line into what amounts to his back yard, since he lives in Ridgecrest, but· at the end of the first lap the lead belonged to the Ronny and Randy Wilson V6 Chevy powered J imco. They had Koen by a margin of eight seconds. This was the Wilson's day to pay back folks who'd been help-ing them, and they not only had three drivers, letting Jeff Quinn do a couple of laps, but also changed passengers every lap. Michael James had his new V4 powered car out for a spin, and he was in third place, about two minutes back. Koch moved into the lead on the second lap, and the Wilson/Quinn team dropped to second, but only about three minutes down. In third now it was the Type IV powered Jimco of Rick Romans, just under an-other two minutes back. Andrew Myers had started the race in his new Unlimited car, but he had no luck here and was unable to get even one lap in, while Bob Hansen suf-fered through a three hour and · 28 minute first lap and then called it a day. Dave Massingham lost about an hour and ten minutes with what his crew called "major welding" on the first lap, and then had just one more long lap before he, too, decided to park it. Koch's lead had increased to about eight minutes by the end of the third lap, and the Wilson/ Quinn team held on to second with James in third. But then James never came around again. And Andrew Gaston, in another VW powered car, managed to get only three laps done and then he never made an-other appearance. Koch, who had an injured shoulder and was scheduled for surgery the week after the race, let Richard Boyle take over on the fourth lap. They held on to their three minute margin and with the Wilsons and Quinn still in second, -Romans was back in third, about ·eight minutes further back. In fourth place it was the team of Den-nis Boyle (Richard's brother) and Frank Hines in a V8 Chevy (Cor-.,,,,.,====="""'==-=---==="'""'==== Eric Heiden had a good day and led the Class 8 race all the way to the end, taking the win by over two hours. ----'----------------------------June 2002 vette) powered Lothringer, who were having trouble with fan belts. They said they "lost a bunch." Richard Boyle had some trouble as the mounts on his seat had bro-ken and the seat had slipped back a bit, making it just not quite the right distance from the pedals. Still, he hung onto the lead, and at the end of Lap 5 was about two and a half minutes up on the Wilson/Quinn car. With Romans' co-driver, Da-men Jefferies, now driving his car a_nd still third. He had Roy Durban, from Kartek, who was the title sponsor at the SNORE race at Primm on this same day, riding with him. Roy said he was sorry to miss that race, but he wouldn't have missed a chance to ride with Jeffer-ies for anything. Boyle had trouble with a cramp in his throttle foot, but at the end of Lap 6 he still led, now five min-utes up on Jefferies, who'd moved to second when the Wilson/Quinn group broke an axle. That cost them about two and a half hours and Hines and Boyle moved into third place. Boyle struggled with his cramped up foot, while Jefferies ran the fast lap of the day, at 42:34 on the last lap and got so close to him that no one could tell who'd won. Once the official score sheet was printed it was time for Koch and Boyle to cel-ebrate: they'd won by just one sec-ond! Romans and Jefferies, whose Jimco was also powered by an air-cooled Type IV motor had pushed them hard, but missed by an eyeblink. Hines and Boyle were third about 50 minutes later, and the Wilsons and Quinn were still another hour back in fourth place, and the last in the class to finish. Class 10 went off the line next and three of them, Kory Halopoff, Jeff Elings and Joseph Lacore came to a stop early in the tlay, never get-ting that first lap done. It was Rich-ard Lesher in the lead at the end of the first lap, with the fast lap for Continued on page 21 Dusty Times

Now he had almost 50 seconds on Walsh, and then Cour-tenay was third and Will Akwari was fourth in his Lothringer with a new two liter single carbureted Type IV motor. Lesher had made good time around the course on Lap 2, but at a price. As he came into his pit he was hollering on the radio, "two flats, right front and left rear!" And s_o it was. But when his crew did some routine checks of the car as others changed tires they discov-ered a trans fluid leak and a leaky oil pan.

At the end of three laps Walsh had the lead and he was now a minute ahead of Omboli. Cour-tenay was still third and Akwari ran fourth.

Casey Currie drove a steady pace in his Jeep, to take second place Mark and Keith Grawe drove their Ford Ranger to second place in Mike Harvey drove all the way in his Porter chassis, and even with no the popular Sportsman Street Legal class. power steering for three laps, he took second place in the 1600 class. Craig Pearson and Mike Horner teamed in Pearson's daily driver, worried about high tranny temperatures, but still won in the Sportsman Street Legal class. ever, two hours and 45 minutes behind the leader. Behind him Louis Grivas and Tom Taggart were in just as bad shape after starting driver Grivas got sick, parked at a distant pit and then had to wait almost two hours for Taggart to get there and get in the car. Afrer six laps Omboli had seven minutes on Brown who had one flat during is stint, and Lothringer was third another 50 minutes back and having repaired a broken lim-iter strap mount. Then_itwas Grivas and Taggart and finally, Callaway, who'd racked up another two hour plus lap. Omboli was zipping along antici-pating his win when a rear arm broke and took his c.v. joint with ir. While he spent over two hours in repairs Courtenay and Brown rook the win. Lothringer and Akwari, bemoaning the fact that the rules allow only one carburetor, finished in second place and Om-boli came in about 20 minutes later in third. Grivas and Taggart were fourth, and Callaway did the sev-enth lap, but finished a minute and 32 seconds over the time limit. He wasn't having a good day. Class 5 had a good sized group of entries, but they had a hard time at Ridgecrest. Tim Sharp managed only one lap of an hour and 23 minutes and then couldn't get a sec-ond one done, and Kevin Loggins used up two hours and five min-utes and then parked with a blown clutch. Thar still left five cars out there playing -and at the end of the first lap it was George Seeley in his yellow New-Beetle looking car in front. He had only six seconds on Tim Criswell with a 2800cc mo-tor built by his dad. He ran with no passenger this race. In third was a snazzy looking black car with me-tallic accents driven by Mike Doug Petterson Jed the Stock Production Mini Truck class all the way in his Ford Ranger and took the win with ease, the only one to finish out of seven starters. Dondel. Mike and his brother, Dale, had been car trading over the break since Laughlin, and just the week before had bought Mike James' terrific ."Outlaw Racing" car, got the new paint job, and decided to give it a· try here. They hadn't had time to pre-run. (While they were at it they traded their LaLtgh-lin winning car for Nick Baldwin's Nye Frank built four wheel drive car which they may keep or may trade for a Trophy Truck. But things may change by the time you read this.) At the end of the second lap the Dondel car was in front, by just un-der a minute, Criswell was second and Seeley was third 13 seconds later. Dondel took about a 20 sec-ond penalty for having "bumped" a car in a slower class. At the end of the third lap Seeley was back in front, the Dondels had dropped it to second after losing an alterna-tor, and Criswell was still third in spite of a flat. Dondel was held again at the start/finish line, appar-ently not having been penalized enough the first time. In fourth place was Dale Hines, son of Frank in the Corvette powered car, and he was about another nine minutes back. Fifth belonged to Steve Grif-fith, another minute behind him, and giving him a good race. The Dondels were back in the lead at the end of four laps, but only about a half minute up on Seeley who must have thought this was his worst nightmare come to haunt him. Here was that d-d Outlaw car again, and in the hands of the Dondels who used to give him a hard time when they ran Class 5 a few years ago. Criswell was now about six minutes back fol-lowed by Hines and then Griffiths, who dropped back a bit after a long lap, and then didn't come around again. Criswell's brother, John, got in for Lap 5 and had an exotic prob-lem that started with "oil on the black box" which caused the alter-nator to quit functioning, and then the battery to go dead. By the time they'd figured out what was wrong, cleaned it up and got a jump-start, they'd lost about two and a half hours. The Dondels had a lead of a minute and a half on Seeley, and now Hines was third, about 32 minutes later, but then he never came around again either. The Dondels had recorded the fast lap for the class on their sec-ond lap, at 46:53, and then on Lap 6 they came close, with a 46:54 lap, but it was overkill. Seeley was parked and involved in a three and a half hour project to replace a broken axle. With the Criswells still working on their "black box" prob-lem, the Dondels sailed on in soli-tary splendor, to take the victory by a margin of two hours. The Criswells were second, and Seeley never got his last lap completed. The Class 8 trucks went off the line next, ahd Eric Heiden went into the lead with about seven minutes on Randy Shoaff, who was 24 min-utes up on Doug Seymour. Heiden had 15 minutes by the end of the second lap and it was still Shoaff in second, and he now had 35 min-utes on Seymour. Bur at the end of the third lap, with Heiden still in front, Shoaff was gone, and Sey-mour was second, though 50 min-utes down to the leader. On the fourth lap Heiden had to install a new fuel pump, and luck held, so he was able to get to his Continued on page 24 Perforniance Proven· for Desert & Off-Road Use 1 5 0 Heavy Duty Sizes to Choose from Some Uses: • Pit Truck Showers & Washdowns • Cooking & Kitchen Facilities • Extended Stay Water Storage Tanks • Bike Trailer Water Tanks • Car & Buggy Trailer Tanks • Pressure Washing Storage Tanks • Non Corrosive Polyethylene • One-Piece Seamless • Heavy Wall Construction • Custom Fitting Locations • New Systems • Auxiliary Systems • Replacements O.E.M.

Lo-zano, and her husband, Leroy, who helps drive, were now third, and Sack had dropped to fourth and last, another six minutes back. Johnston got back in and held the lead through the sixth lap, with Hoerr, Lozano and Sack following in order. They all headed out into the desert for the last trip around the course, which was very rough for their limited suspension. Johnston came back in good time to take the win, and Hoerr followed along in second place as expected. But Sack moved up to take third, only another 13 minutes back, and the Lozanos came down the long road, knowing they were in trouble. They radioed their crew to check up on the rules about pushing a car across the finish line. Their motor was sick, and they pulled over to work on it for a while, then limped a bit further, but it died just a few feet short of a finish, making them a DNF for this event. Class 900 failed to show for this event, except for Kevin Kopitch and Kim Wright in their Chenowth. They ran a steady pace, with no ma-· or troubles, except that Wright's TRANSAXLE ENGINEERING, INC.

The Stock Production Mini Trucks were next, and this group had a miserable day of it. They all got through the first two laps, but it was downhill after that. Doug · Petterson went into the lead right away in his Ford Ranger, and he had only ten seconds on Bob Gra-ham. In third it was Steve Jacketti, another three minutes back, and . then came J.C. Andrews, Jason Walker, Kathy Fay and Ron Smith who'd lost about an hour with some problem. When they came around again it was still Petterson in front, and now he had ten minutes on Gra-ham, who was nine minutes in front of Fay. On the third lap Smith dis-appeared and so did Anderson and Jacketti. Now there were only four left, and Petterson was still in front. He had 15 minutes on Graham, and Fay ran third but about an hour and 25 minutes down. Walker was another 40 minutes back in fourth. When the fourth lap was done there was no one left but Petterson. He went on to get his finish, and his win, reporting "no problems whatsoever" with his Ford. The Stock Mini Truck class, which had to do only four laps, started next. Nicholas Beall was in the lead by just over a minute with Mike Dill in second place. It looked as if a good, tight race was develop-ing. But it wasn't to be. Beall's day started to nirn· sour and he lost over a half hour on Lap 2. Dill now led by 25 minutes. And on the third lap Beall had a time of almost three hours. Dill now led by two hours, and at the end of Lap 4 he had three hours, as Beall struggled. So Dill got the win and Beall was sec-ond after a lon g hard day. The next group to go was the Sportsman Street Legal trucks, and all but one made it through the first lap. Steve Ruddick never got back around, and Eric Berros almost didn't, using four hours and 25 minutes for just one loop. But Dan Vance was in good shape, and he led by seven minutes over Mark Grewe in a Ford Ranger. In third it was Craig Pearson, in his "go to work" truck, and Carolyn Hines was fourth in her Ranger. Hines is the wife of Frank in the Corvette powered car, and the mother of Dale in the Class 5 car. Must be nice to have the whole family rac-ing, but what do they do for pit crew? Grandma and Grandpa? This class was expected to run only four laps, and 1nost of them made it. At the end of Lap 2 it was still Vance in front, and now he had about nine minutes on Growe, whose son, Keith, was navigating. In third it was Hines, and Pearson dropped to fourth. Vance had a problem on the third lap and lost an hour, which put Pearson's co-driver, Mike Horner, into first place. His trans-mission temperature was so high that the truck was going in neutral every now and then, but he just kept moving along. Growe was still second and Hines ran third as Vance dropped to fourth. In fifth, another half hour down, was Michael Licari. Pearson and Hor11-er stayed in front and took the win, beating sec-ond place Growe by a mere 14 min-utes. The Groves had a nice ride in their truc°k which has its windows and air-conditioning to keep them cool on a hot day like this one. Hines, who drove all the way, fin-ished in third place reporting no flat tires and no mechanical trouble. And Vance was fourth after an-other slower lap, followed in by Licari who also had troubles, in fifth. The next group to start was the Pre-Runner Buggies, who were re-quired to run only four laps. Only one, Jonathan Buss, failed to get the first lap done. The lead be-longed to Clint Fisher in a four seat Lothringer chassis powered by a 2.5 liter V6 Toyota motor. This was the second race for the car , and it was not quite five minutes up on Don Plymale. In third it was Todd Jergensen in a Raceco with a 1915cc VW motor. In really is Jergensen's pre-runner, he says he also has a Class 1 car, "but it's always bro-ken." Fourth place belonged to Greg Crew in a Raceco powered by Dust¥. Tigies.-

a 1776cc VW, about seven minutes behind the lead car. After the second lap, when he ran the fast lap for the class at 52:30, Fisher still had the lead and now he was 21 minutes up on Jergensen who'd come up to sec-ond. Crew was third and Plymale dropped to fourth after rolling his car and putting a big dent in the roof. In landed on its whe~ls, so he didn't lost a lot of time. Fisher ran steadily on, and had a lead of 29 minutes by the end of the third lap. His one problem, if it can be called his problem, was that his navigator, Skyler Cadman, be-came carsick and "upchucked all over". Jergensen, who shared the driving with his wife, Shirley and also a buddy, Jim Teagarden, was still second. In third it was Plymale again, and Crew was back in fourth place. Fisher and his carsick navigator went on to take the win, finishing 25 minutes in front of second place. The Jergensen team was second, and just 13 minutes behind them was Crew, who reported" not one prob-lem all day long." And fourth went to Plymale. Finishing in fifth, about three hours later was Michael Parr, who was followed in by Christo-pher Parr in sixth, and then in sev-enth, Jason Wagstaff in nine hours and 18 minutes. The JeepSpeed cars were the next bunch to rake off, and this was Rick Romans and Darnen Jefferies teamed up in Roman's Type IV powered Jimco and nearly took the overall win, missing by just one second. another four lap group.

By the time the field completed lap 4, Huseman was back in his customary position at the front of the pack. Beyer was now in second and Sacio was challenging Carter for third. From that point on it was all Huseman and Beyer, as that pair slugged it out to the finish. Beyer re-established the lead with one lap re-maining, but Huseman swept clear late to claim the Super Champ Truck and overall race win. Beyer settled for first in the Champ Truck class, Sacio took first in Desert Truck 7S and Carter was the uncontested winner of Desert Truck 7. Race 5 was the Saturday finale, and featured a field of seven.Two entrants, Aaron Whitwer and Gary Alan Will-iams, were competing in the Fornrnla 1 class. The remaining five represented three classes, Super Truck 2, Super Truck 4 and Stock Truck. JimmyO'Neal proved quickest off the line, as he grabbed the holeshot and the early lead.

'«t,J .. ~W , .. ,:..; -"' .... *;-.... . ·;..' .... ·~ ~ :~ .',. -..... ~ ,.;., ., David Higgins and Chris Patterson took the overall win at the Oregon Trail ProRal/y in their Subaru WRX. Do you remember the Sunday school story about David and Goliath? Well, that's also the story of the Oregon Trail ProRally, Round 3 of the Sports Car Club of America's (SCCA) ProRally Championship. In our updated tale, David (Higgins) drives a Subaru WRX for AV Sport, an independent tuning shop in Tempe, AZ. While Goliath flexes the combined might of the rally teams representing the SCCA's sponsoring manufacturers; Hyun-dai, Mitsubishi, and Subaru. You know know how this story ends, David tosses a few stones at Goliath and wins the day, but the real story is what happened before Goliath fell to earth. Higgins and co-driver Chris Patterson were the fastest on only one stage; it was their consistency that brought them to the finish first. Our. modern David was born on the Isle of Man 29 years ago, he currently resides in Wales and racks up frequent flier mileage by run-ning in both the U.S. and U.K rally championships, while doing a bit of rally car testing, and also teach-ing at the family rally school in his · spare time. Andy Brown and the AV Sport team have built a tidy package for Higgins and their WRX powered by an open class motor built by Cobb Tuning in Dallas. On the first stage the Goliaths jumped into the lead with a differ-ent Higgins, brother Mark and co-driver Michael Gibson driving for Hyundai and 2001 series cham-pion Mark Lovell with Nicholas Beech in a Prodrive Subaru WRX tying for the lead. It was a short event for Lovell and Beech who re-tired when a half shaft failed on Stage 2. Two more former champions dropped out early when Paul Choiniere and Jeff Becker retired their shiny new Hyundai Tiburon with transmission failure on Stage 2. When asked about the early re-tirements, Becker surmised "we're all running really hard, asking ev: erything from cars and crews, things are just bound to break." Page 44 Mark Higgins and Gibson were fastest on Stage 2 and 3, building a nice lead that evaporated when their transmission hung up on Stage 4. The Hyundai lost a minute on that stage and two minutes on Stage 5 before they were able to make repairs at service. David Higgins and Patterson took the AV Sport Subaru into lead on Stage 4 and ground out a 30 second lead during the night sta·ges. Rhys Millen and Garry Cowan in a Mitsubishi Lancer and Ramana Lagemann and Mike Kidd in the second Prodrive Subaru were just two seconds apart at the overnight break. In spite of the lead, things didn't look that good for Higgins/ Patterson anhe end of Day L The Goliaths were nipping at their heels and a transmission problem on Stage 7 had the AV Sport crew scrambling to make overnight re-pairs. Early on Day 2 Lagemann and Kidd turned on the pressure, jumping into the second spot ahead o(Millen and Cowan. Lagemann looked strong until his transmission failed on the next to the last stage forcing the second Subaru USA entry to the side of the road. At the end of the trail, the over-night repairs held and it was David in the independent Subaru atop the charts with a time of 2:06:38 and an average speed on 53.6 mph. Millen and Cowan were 44 seconds back in second, while M. Higgins and Gib-son in the Hyundai fought their way back up to third, 2:24 behind the leader. Another independent entry, Carl J ardevall and Amity Trow bridge fin-ished fourth in the Nordic Motors Mitsubishi, less than a minute behind the third place Hyundai. Mark Nel-son and Charlie Bradley were fifth in a TAD Mitsubishi Lancer followed by Nat T-Stow and John Elkin in the Cascade Autosport Subaru WRX. Pete Lahm and Mike Fennell were sev-enth in another of the TAD Lancers. The Group N class battle filled the next four slots with Subaru WRXs. Ralph Kosrnides and Jimmy Ralph Kosmides and Jimmy Brandt took the Group N win in their Subaru WRX in Oregon.

Weyth Gublemann and Thenn Pace were tenth overall ahead of Doug Havir and Scott Putnam. So AWD cars filled the first 11 spots, six Subarus, four Mitsubishis, and a Hyundai.

Three cars dropped out on the first stage, in-cluding one of the Group 5 favorites Jay Streets and Janice Damitio who lost oil pressure in the ex-Jardevall Volvo 740 turbo. Also out on the first stage were open class competi-tors Tim Paterson and John Allen who broke a differential in their TAD Lancer. John and Ray Damitio were early leaders in Group 5 until a broken wheel hub on Stage 4 put their Volvo on the trailer. Bench racing conversation at the rally centered on the stage notes that were provided to competitors to supplement the route book. Stage notes are similar to the pace notes that are used on the World Rally Championship. They provide every-one with the same kind of objective information about the road (turns, bumps etc.), but they don't include the subjective information a team would develop from pre-running-the rally stages (speed, gearing, etc.). Fourth place co-driver Trowbridge co111n1ented "the stage notes were a bit difficult at first, but once we got used to them we did pretty well." The notes are a big change for Ainerican teains who are used to run-ning_the stage "blind", limited by what they can see and anticipate from the road and the terrain. The official SCCA word is that stage notes will improve safety, but it's generally agreed among the competitors that stage notes increase speed. Since in-creased speed usually doesn't do much to help safety, this could be an interesting season. -• .,, Dusty Times Your car Stops here! 934 MlcroDisc Hub Assemblies If you're looking for in off-road braking, look no further.

Well, as we start into our mid season of racing we are faced with a new obstacle. Life seems to bring us obstacles in any ways. When racing, we seem to usually make it around most of these, and I have confidence that we will with this. This, as I refer, is the loss of our meeting location/ clubhouse. As most of you probably heard at this time I sold my business and all of the property as well. We are again temporarily homeless. We have several new options we are looking into but are all ears to others. It has been an incredible time in this location and is extremely hard for me to let it go but times call for change. Speaking of change, some of our ideas may require more ofit, we need some serious input from all members and are hoping that all Checkers will make the effort to come to the meetings and enjoy our last couple months in our clubhouse. We're outta there in July. Well race fans, we were back at it with the TI 250 BITD race. Tom Koch took his Pro Truck up to Pahrump and showed us again he has what it takes. He is just beginning to bond with this new truck and it seems it was meant to be. He brought home a strong second place finish, having only lost to a second flat while Lee Patten was behind the wheel. We had good Checker support in Pahrump with the presence of some long time Checkers, Jeff Hibbard, Tom Jeremiah, George Thompson, Dennis Crowley, Tony Tellier and Rex Keeling. Our next stop was out in the Lucerne Valley at the MO RE is MORE race where Victor Bussey was representing the Checkers Team. Vic finished with a second in class and a second overall at this race maintaining a high Checker standard. Next on our racing adventures: We had a double header with a two in the same weekend. We had three cars running at the SNORE Buffalo Bill's 400, and four at the MDR Ridgecrest 500. Competing at the SNORE race was Mike Duenas/Jim Greenway, Brian and Scott Steele, and Vic Bussey. All three of our cars were competing in the second round of the Pro Dirt 1600 series. Our pits were well covered with Revenue Roy taking the Main, GeorgeJirka, Peter Presenstien took a pit, Randy Sphar took a pit and Richard Young took the fourth pit. Results were Duenas/Greenway with no record of any time, so I'll have to figure they ran into trouble from the start, the Steeles took fourth in class and Vic Bussey's lap times stopped on Lap 5, where he ended 31st in class. This info will have to be updated next month as I'm already late on this press deadline. We had hot weather and a good showing of Checkers out in Ridgecrest to cheer on local hero and a man we refer to as "The Ridgecrest Rocket" running with another local legend Richard Boyle. We also had the honor of cheering on Class 5 champion George Seeley and Hooked up our hopes with our proven McCool winning entry of Jimmy Hook, Billy McCool and Jimmy Messick. Our fourth entry, Marq Prince was unveiling his brand new car, but ran into some R&D problems while testing on Friday. Unfortunately, Marq was unable to make a start time on Saturday. George Seele·y was running a fantastic race with some hard pressing competition by the 501 car of Dale Dondel. The fast pace set by both of the drivers finally took its toll o·n George's classic 2002 Baja styled Class 5 car. He broke an axle and was unable to get a replacement in time to finish out the race, having to settle with a DNF after such an incredibly competitive day of racing. Great job George! Jimmy/Billy/Jimmy ran a great race taking the lead right off. These guys The CORE pit club is welcoming volunteers to join club outings and racing events. We meet at Mulligans restaurant in Valencia, CA the first Tuesday every month. Anyone is welcome. If you are a race team looking for qualified pit service, CORE can haul tires, pit boxes & spares to outlying pi ts. We have radios, welders & tons of pitting equipment. We also organize desert outings & BBQs.

It was a close race most of the day not allowing them any room for error. They finished with a first in class finish when all was said and done. Great job guys! Tom and Richard certainly had no room for error as the final finishing times reflected. These guys won their class · and the overall by one second. They beat Rick Romans' time by one second; this was a good thing for those of us in the pits that had worked on the car. I'm glad the tire change in Pit C didn't take any longer because somehow I'm sure I would have been fined for it. As usual, this incredibly competitive tea1n was a treat to watch as they worked their magic on the race course, fast and furiously they chewed it up. In true Checker style, we had all pits well covered at this race as well. With two races going on the same weekend we were still able to fully cover seven pits. The four in Ridgecrest were as follows; Main Pit was Dick McCool, Jake Smith, Ty Goode, Roger Byrd, Josh "Elvis" Gilliam and Malcolm Bryce. Pit A was Dave Shell, Tom Jeremiah, Fred Nelson, Bobby McCall and Gary Bates. Pit B was Jimmy Tucker and Mike McGee with some help from non-Checker 1nembersAaron Tucker, Zach Fava, Bryce Rowland and Bobby McCloud. Pit C was well covered by Big John Files, Granddad to be Michael Lee Thompson, Steve Coley, myself and Doug Brown. Most pits spent more time cheering on our racers than working on them. As usual Ridgecrest was an exciting event and one we all eniov. Well, time to put this one to bed, remember, we need ·all men1ber's input on a new location for our meetings, bur tintil then we can still be found on Wednesday nights at 8:00pm at 1111 Foothill Blvd., La Canada or on the web at If ya need to curse us or praise us or just plain ole converse with us, we can be reached at (818) 790-1161. Remember, we're always on the lookout for a "Few Good Men" especially si~ce we just lost a couple to Elvis drive thru in Vegas. It seems that Dave Shell and Josh Gilliam both made speed runs to the drive thru chapels over the last two weeks and did the deed. We'll be on the lookout for the big reception hoe-downs to follow. SEE YA IN THE DEZ, EL PREZ. ■■■■■■■■ 12 --,_o-,,,O't' "" , By Wayne Nosala For those of you new to off road racing, CORE is a volunteer pit club, which has been in existence since the dawn of the sport. A lot has changed over the years, but CORE has remained dedicated to -its goal of providing first class pit support to those in need of assistance. For all the benefits CORE provides, the club asks very little i1f return. Attendance at our monthly meetings is, of course, desired, but we fully understand that many racers live a great distance away. For all the racers, both near and far, CORE asks four things in return for its services: 1. Each team requesting pit support make available two individuals to help man our various checkpoints. 2. Each requestor give at least limited advance notice of his/her need for pit support. 3. Each race team make a $50 donation to enable CORE to continue pi;oviding racers with the kind of support that wins races. 4. Each race team promptly notify CORE if they are out of an event. We don't want our crews to wait in a · pit for a race car that is broken on a trailer. Recently, the club has seen an increase in the number of racers who have failed to give notice of their intent to race and/ or their need for pit support. This puts a huge strain on our members and our resources. Spare tires and other parts you would like to have available for pitting purposes should be delivered well in advance of start time. These types of things should be handled.long before donning a driving suit. CORE also understands that occasions do arise when team does not have two bodies to help out in the pits. However, those that are able should remember to do their part. That line of thinking also applies to the $50 donation. When you think about 'it $50 is really a small price to pay for the backing of a dedicated crew. It might also be wise to bear in mind that CORE members trek to these· events on their own dime and ask nothing for their services. Helping out with able bodies strengthening the club and pitching in financially ensures that CORE will continue to be a recognizable force in the future of off road racing. CORE regularly maintains a booth at contingency, and staff' members are glad to answer any questions you might have concerning the club. CORE truly values the hard work of its members, and expects to see its membership grow as the season progresses. Anyone interested in being a part of .the racing action, rather than merely witnessing it, is encouraged to contact me at (818) 703-1971. . Snore Buffalo Bill's 400 race report: Casinos, buffets, hanging out in the Tree Bar, technical inspections, contingency and the race course all are located within walking distance, you have got to love this ra e. Gary Hall and his family along with Tim Lindsey set up a booth in contingency to help promote the club. They also signed up a few racers for us to pit for. Team Inch: Brad started the race in 35th position with a total of 53 1600 cars, he had his work cut· out for him. Brad managed to run a trouble free first la·p. During his second lap he blew a front right tire while approaching Pit A All we could do was watch while Brad turned around. He threaded his way back to our pit where we promptly changed the tire. A quick inspection showed that barbwire had wrapped around one of the rear axles resulting in a torn c.v. boot. Brad opted to have the whole rear axle changed. He then instructed the main pit via radio to take the rear axle assembly out of his pre-runner. Main pit would swap the whole assembly in to his race car. When Brad arrived, Tommy Craig took over driving duties, the swap was Dusty Times

T performed, fuel dumped and away the Lothringer went. The rest of the race was uneventful. Brad and Tommy brought home a seventh place finish. Team Rarnly Jones: Randy with Patricia Payne co-driving made a valiant effort in the older Bunderson built 1600 car. Randy's driving skills quickly moved the car to third position and kept it there for three laps. On Lap 4, Rob Myerly and Ken Hezlbaker took over the car. They kept up the pace Randy had set. They unfortunately ran into some trouble. The steering rod broke on a front spindle. This resulted in down time welding it back together. When the dust cleared, Team Jones finished in 22nd place. Randy may have finished down in this race but he did win the CORE "Longest Race Radio Toss" recorded in a pit. It seems that the radio mount broke during Lap 2, Patricia managed to wrestle the radio out. When they arrived at Pit "B" she threw the radio out, where it came in contact with a spinning rear tire resulting in the radio flying 30 feet into the air,. amazing the crew and anyone who witnessed it. Needless to say they ran without radio contact the rest of the race. Team Davy Girdner. Davy didn't have a good race. He lost the motor in his 1600 car on the second lap, • thus ending his day much earlier than he anticipated. Team Freeman: Cody and Kenny Freeman (Snore President) experienced a long day. The 1600 entry blew a piston early in the race. He and his crew spent valuable time replacing the piston, barrel and head assembly. The rebuild was completed and car continued on. With the intention to finish for points, he later broke a front spring adjuster ultimately retiring for the day. Ken Tapert: Ken reported no problems with his 9 car for this race. He did note the rough progression of the course. Ken brought his car in for a fourth place finish. Tom Vanderplog: CORE performed some last minute repairs on Tom's 9 car before the race. Tom, along with co-driver Shannon Switzer, reported having a couple of flats in the first half of the race. Shane Switzer and Allen Yanderplog then took over driving duties. They brought the car home for a sixth place finish. Doug Silcock: This was Doug's first time using CO RE as a pit service. He reported no.problems during the race. Doug brought his 9 car in for an eighth place finish. PITS: Main: The Main Pit crew was Gary Hall and his family, Sharon, Kim and Kara, along with Darrin and Vicky Griffin and Steve McMullen. Gary handled the radio in his usual professional fashion. Kara did her usual great job of keeping track of positions. Along with fuel stops and driver changes, Main Pit also swapped Brad's rear axle assembly in record time. Pit"A" Myself along with Ann Donaldson, Tom Greig, Sr. and Dave Lilavios, we changed some tires, ate dirt and enjoyed the luxury of having the only motorhome in the pit. Pit "B" This pit was comprised of Tim and Jeremy Lindsey, Dave Girdner and Larry Altkoff. This crew was kept fairly busy throughout the race.

Racing started around 5 :30pm so driving lights were needed. The spectators loved watching the Robinson Mazda 323 The CRS has been the lucky recipient of a big dose of generosity from Subaru of America's Western Coast Division this year. We have received a new generator to run our computers at the events plus sponsorship for the pizza and beer parties at our two rally schools. Now they have stepped up again and donated funds to buy a set of timing equipment for rally cross even ts. Phil Pausmer has been helping to coordinate these gifts to the CRS. We want to extend a big thank you to Subaru and Phil in particular. In addition it looks like Subaru will be bringing WRC driver Peter run after dark with flames shooting from the exhaust due to its turbo anti-lag system. Leon Styles was the eventual overall winner in the Audi which he has leased from George Plsek for the season. Great start Leon. Doug Robinson and Julius Vasari were second and third in the Open class. Dave Coleman flogged his Datsun 510 around the course and won the Group 2/5 class. Richard Byford was second. In the CRS Stock class it was Brad Boli in his Honda. A big surprise at the event was Don Shreyer in his RX7. He really picked up the pace and did a great job driving. He had a few anxious moments when the Mazda wouldn't start for him as he waited in line. Loren Worthington had his first taste of rallying and got so excited he rolled his car. At least it was in front of spectators so he can't lie about it. You are up for the Captain Crunch award now! Other faces at the event were Gabe Pari, who didn't roll. Robert Sudhop, who has been road racing, came back to run with us. Tony Chavez was there only long enough to blow up the new turbo in his Galant while driving the parade lap. Tony De La Cuesta came in his new Toyota. The Clarks were present for one lap till they broke the suspension on their Subaru. The trophy girl this year was a vast improvement over Tom Grossman in a dress. This year they brought a full size cardboard advertising girl to have her picture taken with the winners. Dave Coleman was going to steal her for the night. Leon received the "I Spanked Everyone at the Seed 9 · . Rally Sprint" t-shirt for his win. Looks like Tom and Scott have a four stage event planned for next year. They have received the "okay" to use some roads out by Jean. NV. This will be a great prep event for our first of the season full rally Rim of the World. Hope to see everyone there. The CRS Rally School hosted by Ray and Donna Hocker was well attended. They had about 80 people show up to go through the course. A whole bunch of CRS members showed up to help run the course with Ray. Subaru hosted the beer and pizza "feed" Saturday night. On Sunday the Rally Cross at the fairgrounds in Ridgecrest had a big entry. The CRS signed up 20 new members at the event.

awarded at the banquet this year to the top class finishers in the rally cross series. Last weekend was Oregon Trails in Portland, OR. Six teams of CRS competitors drove up to compete in the rally. Josh Jacquot and Dave Coleman had the best trip with a win in the Production class with the Hyundai provided by John Buffum. Lauchlin O'Sullivan and Matt Chester took second in Group 2 in the team Mitsubishi Eclipse. Teams with less luck were Jay Streets in his Volvo which dumped a turbo. Leon Styles and John Dillon were having a good run till the oil pump let go in the Audi they leased from George Pisek, Jr. Chris Burns had an engine let go in his car and Richard Byford and Fran Olson were plagued with fuel pump problems which finally took them out. Everyone agreed it is fun to head out to other regions and see what their roads offer for rally. Plus this rally had stage notes which is new to most of us and gave the navigators a lot to do. Thanks Ben Bradley and crew, you did a great job with this year's Oregon Trails ProRally. Next up is the Rim of the World Rally in Palmdale, CA.

MAGNA FLUX rsTRIC:ZLY in next month's column. See you at the start line! ■■■■■■■■ ~---By Wes Wisdom First of all, apologies to everyone who missed seeing the FA.LR. column in last month's issue. It was a casualty of the "Two Races On One Weekend" syndrome. Too much to do, too little time and racing has priority over writing this column. We'll try to catch up on last month's happenings as well as the current month. FA.LR. had six members race the M.O.R.E. Balls Out 250. Scott Wisdom was the Race Manager and none of the three pits reported having much action. Harry Dunne's son, Christopher, somehow finagled a ride with Kathy and Stacy Fay in their Class 7 Ford. TI1e truck developed a power steering problem on Lap 1 and then a loud "thunking" towards the end of the race but finished in a good second place. By the way, the "thunking" was never found. P.S. -Christopher decided he prefers riding with his dad in their Class 9. Speaking of Class 9, Mike Norris and Jerry Burke had their cars in the race. Mike was lost for a while and then a rocker arm broke. He was able to scrounge a rocker arm assembly from a play car that was parked close and went on to a well deserved third in class. Unfortunately for Jerry, his engine seized on the second lap for a DNF. Richard Lesher was running real well in Class 10 until engine problems put him out. Too bad, the car is really fast! TI1e strong and competitive Class 1600 had two F.A.l.R. entries, Brian Geer and Jerry Longo and both did very well. Brian lost a lot of time with electrical problems, but, with some driving help from Sean Bennett, finished second in class. Jerry Logo had a great day! When things go well there isn't much to talk about and things went so well for Jerry that he was first in Class 1600 and second overall! More racers should take advantage ofM.O.R.E. Jim Clements puts on a good race with better payouts than any other series. This brings us to "Double Race Weekend II". It was a lot tougher to pull off than the Laughlin/Parker weekend in January. There were only three pits to cover that weekend but this tin1.e there were nine between the two racers. Dave Massingham stepped up to drive the van to the MOR Ridgecrest 300 and to be acting Race Manager. He had seven cars and five pits to manage and he was racing, too! What a guy! Unfortunately, a steering shaft broke on his Class 1 modified "WayneZilla" on the first lap. He was able to drive it back to the Main Pit using the highway with his co-driver sitting on the hood pf the car steering with a pair of pliers! That must have been a sight to see! Repairs were made but they were forced to retire on lap 2 with other problems. Richard Lesher was running well again until the transmission let go on Lap 4. Richard is running in just about every race that is being run this year and if he can get the car sorted out he'll start winning some races. Tim Sharp, in his Class 5 car, came upon a truck that had just rolled in a sand wash. He slowed to check if they were okay and then, wouldn't you know it, their car got buried in the sand! It must have been pretty bad at this particular spot because there were many other vehicles also stuck. Tim wound up with a DNF on Lap 2. Frank Omboh was annihilating the very fast Class 10 field. He had a -45 minute lead on the last lap when · a trailing arm broke. Even with an hour lost while Pit B was welding it up he still was able to finish third in class and ninth overall. Kathy Fay, in Class 7, finished three laps before something let go in the transmission and A.J. Gaston 'ERFORMANCE Page so Duality products built in house along with Fabtech.

SNORE's Buffalo Bill's 400, scheduled the same day as MDR's Ridgecrest race, was a BIG event with 123 entries. Because the PRO1600 group had chosen this as one of their races, there were 59 starters in Class 1/2-1600! With beautiful racing weather it was what off road racing should always be like. Tom Sobray took on Race Manager duties for the event and had ten F.A.I.R. cars and four pits to cover. With the van going to Ridgecrest, all of the F.A.I.R. trailers were hauled up to Primm Valley, nee Stateline, NV. Jeff Sherrill with a Class 10 c ar had a long day. The engine started missing just after passing the Main Pit off the Start line. It stalled two miles before Pit A. Jeff changed a coil but needed a tow to the pit. The Pit A people changed the points and got it running. Still, it wasn't running very well and, after a roll-over on Lap 2, tl1eydid complete three laps in the time limit. We had one 5-1600 car. David Foss came from San Francisco to race in the Nevada desert. The car ran well on the first lap. They changed drivers for Lap 2 but a torsion adjuster finger broke going into Pit A. (Actually, it had broken prior to the driver change and the broken piece was found laying in the front bumper of the car. Nobody could figure out where it came from because the car looked okay and so it was sent off.) Pit A installed a new adjuster, borrowed from.Jeff Knupp, but then a trailing arm pivot bolt broke before they made it to Pit B. There were eight Class 1/2-1600 cars using F.A.I.R.'s services. Frank Wagner blew his engine 20 miles in to the race. Don Johnson suffered the same fate on Lap 4. Brice Crawford, down from the Reno area, had a tough weekend. It started off badly when his pit crew broke down in Beatty on the way to the race with all his spares. Then he had electrical problems right off the start and it took 45 minutes to find and repair the problem. He finally DNF'd when the woodruff key on the crank pulley broke or came out. Weird things happen when it's just not your race. Your problems can be caused by other drivers, too. Just ask Brady Wilson. He and Jerry Longo were driving Mike Long's car. Jerry started and was passing some cars when another car tried to pass him. This other car was so out of control he T-boned Jerry and rolled him over. There didn't appear to be much damage other than a bent up roof until Brady took over on lap 3. The ring and pinion in the transmission went out, probably caused by the roll-over. Out illustrious President, Brent Parkhouse, deserves an award for perseverance. They broke a front torsion adjuster while testing in Barstow on the way to the race. Brady Wilson supplied the replacement parts (at 3:00 a.m. Friday morning while Brent was at the Craps table) but the adjuster bracket broke on the pre-run. The whole ming was welded up solid for the start of the race but he other adjuster broke at Pit B. That was also welded up. Then, when the car got back to the Main Pit, the clutch master cylinder push rod was broken. That was fixed and then a rear torsion adjuster broke. Pit B fixed that bur, on the last lap just 40 miles from the finish, the other rear torsion adjuster broke. What a shame. With all that effort they Dusty Times

couldn't at least get a finish. Curt Geer and Kevin Walsh both had some minor electrical problems and both were able to finish the race. Last but notleast, F.A.l.R.'s "Hero of the Race", Brian Logan. Brian's race started well when he was picked to be the first 1600 car in the 59 car class and he stayed first on the road for the entire race! Two other cars did beat him on time though it was only by a couple of minutes. A very great third in class! Watchihg Brian's race made the weekend. Everybody was watching their stopwatches to check the time splits. Great fun! Thanks Brian. All in all, it was a race weekend to rememher. Ir's too bad that those at Ridgecrest missed out on the Buffalo Bill's race and those at the Buffalo Bill's race missed out on Ridgecrest. Hey, you promoters, give us and yourselves a break. Don't schedule races on the same day! •••••••• GUAM PROTRUCK CHALLEN CE APRIL 18-21,. 2002 GUAM, U.S.A. Winner: Brian Stewart, Herzog Auto Racing Ford #13 Yigo-Guam ... The second annual Miller Smokin' Wheels event on the luscious island of Guam was a huge success this past weekend. Seven Protruck teams from the mainland made the voyage to the welcoming island arriving last Wednesday evening. Hosted by the Guam Racing Federation (GRF) and the Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) the Protrucks, drivers and teams once again, stole the hearts of the locals, and other racers from around the world giving the island a weekend full of some great off road racing! The week was full of exciting racing, promotions, and lots of beautiful_ Guam weather (ranging from 85-95 during the day with a tropical breeze and 80-88 at night). In addition to the Protruck Challenge, other classes included all divisions of motorcycle and ATV racers, buggies, and local rock crawling and mud bogging competitors. The condition of the course was totally different than last year where the red clay-like mud engrossed every inch of everything! This year the course was very dry and dusty and soaked up every bit of water than was sprayed on it. TI1e dust was blinding at times. They Dusty Times finished the motocross portion of the track in fro•nt of the grandstands adding a few double, triple jumps, fast "woops", and the flat oval around the bowl. Everyone had a great time, did a lot of sightseeing, snorkeling, and enjoyed a lot of culture, and brought back a piece of tl:i,e historic island in our hearts. **The ·Miller Smokin' Wheels Protruck Challenge event from 2001 and 2002 will be broadcasted on the ESPN International Network, reaching half billion viewers!!! Big thanks to Jerry Garrett and Laura Byrd from Arrow Productions. The week started on Thursday, 4/17/02 when we unpacked and practiced most of the day. We ended the night with a Protruck team dinner cruise around the scenic area ofTumon Bay, Guam -which was very entertaining. Friday 4/18/02 -Technical inspection, practice and press/ sponsor rides kept everyone busy most of the day. Final preparations were made to the track and to the Protrucks as they got ready for Sarurday, which was the first day of competition. Saturday4/19/02 -Heat One The racers were all in island mode by this time and had to get focused as they drew for starting positions. Off the line was Wally Hrdlicka #40, Rick Johnson Ford #43, Brian Stewart -driving the Herzog Electric Ford # 13, Gary Magness Ford #50, Dennis Dugan Ford #52, Jeff Dickerson Ford #23 and Tony Licitra Chevy #42. They held tight to their positions until Lap 3 when Wally Hrdlicka (40) did a side flip in the coconut trees. His buddy, Gary Magness (50), was leading the pack until he stopped to check if the #40 truck was okay. After this, Rick Johnson (43) led the Protrucks to the end wit:1 Brian Stewart (13) in second, Jeff Dickerson (23) third, then Dennis Dugan, Wally Hrdlicka (40), Tony Licitra (42) and Gary Magness (50). Heat Two The starting order was reversed on how the drivers finished in Heat l. Gary Magness (50) led until Lap 4, then Dennis Dugan (52) moved up a few spots and took over the lead until the checkered flag. The remainder of the trucks battled in the dust, and fought for and held onto their positions. Brian Stewart gained four positions finishing second. The finishing order was 52, 13, 50, 43, 40, 23, 42. The finishing positions in both heats were added up in points and the driver with most points from both heats got to choose their starting position for the Land Rush start in the Sunday main event. Brian Stewart # 13 had the first choice and he chose the inside, followed by Dennis Dugan #52 next to him, Rick Johnson #43, Jeff Dickerson #23 chose the opposite end-outside, Gary Magness #50, Wally Hrdlicka #40, and Tony Licitra #42. LET THE GAME5 BEGIN!!! Sunday 4/12/02 Excitement was in the air, the sun was shining and the wind was blowing forecasting a perfect race day. After the motorcycle race was complete, and a final track watering, the Protrucks took their positions in the land rush start format. Engines were roaring and the spectators were on their feet, waiting for the green .. __________ ,._. ___ ,,,,, ____ ,__:,,_,,..._ __ ,,,,, ______ ~---flag and trying to decipher how these trucks could maneuver themselves together before the hard left turn (about 200 yards) away at the bottom of the bowl. Flag dropped, and it was obvious that Brian Stewart # 13 chose the perfect starting position as he charged to the front of the pack, followed by Rick Johnson, Jeff Dickerson, Dennis Dugan, Tony Licitra, Wally Hrdlicka, and Gary Magness. They were racing hard as can be, but Brian was holding on strong to his lead position with Rick Johnson trying hard to yank it. Gary Magness jumped two spots on Lap 3 and the competitors managed to hold onto their positions throughout the race. When the checkered flag dropped, they cat)le flying in ... 1st: Brian Stewart # 13, $10,000; 2nd: Rick Johnson #43, $5,200; 3rd: Jeff Dickerson #23, $2,400; 4th: Dennis Dugan #52, $1,600; 5th: Gary Magness #50, $800; 6th: Tony Licltra #42, $600; 7th: Wally Hrdlicka #40, $400. Smokin' Wheels Enduro The Protrucks were ready for some more action, with five out of the seven trucks ready to take on the two hour endurance race, there was a total of 14 entered, r'acing along with the buggy/ car class. By the first lap, Geno Licitra #42 (son of Tony Licitra), had.the crowd on their feet a:s they watched him chasing the !eader Ikuo Hanawa in the Isuzu Geolander of Japan and m.oving up two spots. In the meantime, Henry Simpson, Guam Racing Federation's founder and Miller Smokin Wheels promoter, was in the driving seat of Ryan Herzog's Ford #13, and Rob Kittleson #50 was giving Guam's Senator/Vice Speaker Larry Kasperbauer a ride of his life. On Lap 5, as Geno Licitra #42 was moving fast and reeling in for the lead, a damaging nudge by another car on the north portion of the track (unseen to spectators) sent him into a hole on its side of the edge of the jungle, unable to get pulled out. The red flag was dropped for about 15 minutes, everyone was okay and the race went on. By Lap 7, the Japanese were still in the lead with local Saipan resident Ray Alvarez behind them, Dennis Dugan #5 2 was in sixth place, with Henry Simpson behind him, Steve Knudson driving #40 in eighth, and Rob Kittleson #50 in ninth. By Lap 11, Dennis Dugan charged through the traffic to the second place spot, following Hanawa of Japan, making remarkable time and by Lap 13 was in the lead. They were going strong until Dennis had a flat from a damaged body hanger, that set him back a few spots but thanks to the pit support of the teams he ':Vas able to get out of there in less than a minute and chased the leaders to the checkered flag finishing second.
