ABOOK FOR ALL SEASONS -We ran across Backcountry Adventures the other day, a book written for any and 11 with any kind of a sport utility vehicle and a wee bit of adventure in their soul, this book is a must! The Southern California edition is 640 pages of the most precise, informative descriptions of every trail, railroad, town, ghost town that you have ever heard or read about and there are plenty of descriptions in this book that I know you've never heard of! All on fine glossy paper with loads of pictures and map drawings, and, get this, there are OPS coordinates almost every step of the way. The Southern California edition covers the area from Bishop to Monterey and all the way south to the Mexican border. 150 trails are detailed in the book and Dusty Times feels it is well worth having for your weekend off road driving pleasure. This is the best buy we've seen in a long time and it should be in your home. Backcountry Adventures: Southern California is available at local bookstores, map shops, 4WD stores and sporting goods stores for a measly $34.95. You may also contact the Publisher: Swagman Publishing, 800-660-5107 or at S USQUEHANNOCK TRAIL RALLY -The fifth rally of the 2002 season, the SCCA ProRally Susquehannock Trail Rally gets going on June 1 in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania.

In the Open class some of the entrants are: Seamus Burke, David Higgins, Paul Choiniere, Mark Lovell, Mark Higgins, Karl Scheible, Ramana Lage1nann, Rhys Millen and many, many more. It should be a very interesting rally. Hopefully there will be a full report and pictures in the next issue of Dusty Times. MORE SCORE NEWS -Just in over the transom, SCORE announced that Optima Batteries will be the title sponsor for the 2002 Optima SCORE Desert Series. Natch, the Optima battery will be the official battery of SCORE. Another hot SCORE flash is that Ford Trucks have become the official vehicle for the 2002 Optima SCORE Desert Series.

Good Show! ANOTHER BOXER LAND GRAB -The Sierra Club's best friend, Barbara Boxer is at it again.

• TECATE SCORE BAJA 500 Herbst & Roeseler Team To Win By Judy Smith Photos: Trackside Photo Jerry Penhall and L. J. Kennedy teamed in their Penhall, to have a near-flawless day and take the victory in SCORE Lite by about a half-hour. Troy Herbst and Larry Roeseler pooled their considerable talents for the Baja 500 and it proved to be a winning combination. Even a scary, near-disastrous moment when Herbst came face to face with on-course traffic couldn't slow the duo enough to lose them the race. The Smithbuilt Ford powered Truggy had an untroubled day for the most part, but finished the tight race only seven minutes in front of the second place vehicle. With the biggest entry since 1990, this edition of the Baja 500 brought huge, colorful crowds to Ensenada for the traditionally noisy and crowded contingency day in the vacant lot across from the Riviera Convention Center. The weather, while threatening a tropi-cal storm, decided to cooperate, and mild temps and gentle breezes were the norm for the weekend. Even the usual springtime early m.ornirig fog sat offshore for the most part. The course started in front of the Convention Center and then finished at the northeastern out-skirts of town, after traversing some 473.6 miles of Baja's best. There has been little rain in Baja and the course was dry and dusty except for a couple of places where the booby-trappers were at work. The course turned off the highway onto the old, familiar road up to Mike's Sky Ranch at about Race Mile 140. About a quarter mile into the dirt the locals had opened a six-inch pipe and flooded the course. It was flooded during the pre-run a week before, and then they turned it on again a day or so before the race and just let it run. It had the antici-pated effect. And in what amounts to the same neighborhood, though it was many miles later on the race course, the locals had dammed up the river crossing just before Simpson's Ranch on the way down from Mike's. What had been a mere trickle pre-running became a six foot deep pond on race day. Just some of the exigencies of racing in Baja. Otherwise, it was racing as usual. From Ensenada, northeast into Ojos Negros, then a bit south to-wards Tres Hermanos and back to and across Highway 3 at Cerro Colorado. Then they paralleled the highway to the infamous "Goat Trail" where they dropped down onto the highway on the outskirts of Valle Trinidad. The racers turned off the highway at Mike's Road, splashed through the flood and ran up to Mike's and beyond, crossing the San Telmo Road east of Meling's Ranch, then turning westward to Santa Cruz and gradu-ally curving northward and again crossing the San Telmo Road. Then they picked up the old road up to Mike's that came in from the west, past El Coyota, anc;l at the turn off toward Simpson's, dropped down the hill, across the river and gradu-ally ran downhill to the outskirts of Valle Trinidad, near the power station. After that they headed downward and westward, crossing Highway 1 at Llano Colorado, and following the road out to the beach, where they turned north, through Ensenada. A little more beach running brought them to the fine, winding road up into Santo Tomas, then there was a brief pave-ment run to Uruapan, where they turned back into the dirt. After that it was tight and technical through Tres Hermanos, then back into Ojos and a 63 mile return trip on the same road that went out-bound in the morning. There was a 20 hour time limit. The bikes and quads were started off at 6:00 a.m., and the cars went at -uh, well, the cars went ~ at 7:30. But for a variety of rea-sons, some folks, about half of them evidently, thought that the cars wouldn't start until 8:00 a.m. Stag-ing was a little hairy as the first three Trophy Trucks were lining up on the ramp, the next three sched-uled to leave were threading their way through a hundred miscella-neous buggies and trucks as their occupants hurriedly buckled seat belts and strapped on their helmets.

As a final igno-miny that wrong-way arrow suckered them and Castro got stuck in the ditch for about 45 minutes before his crew could get in to pull him out. They were the last Class 1 car to finish. The only other team to drop out in the final section was Larry and Miles Wyatt. The Class 10 cars were next. There were 23 of them, and most of them. made it to Mile 132. But Ron and Travis Brookshire, Jose Canchola and Tim Hayosh all broke before then. The lead at that point belonged to Steve Melton in a Toyota powered Jimco, and he had a minute and five seconds on Kory Kalopoff in his Honda pow-ered Chenowth. In third place it was Scott Sellers who was going to solo in his Honda Chenowth, only another 36 seconds back. Martin Christensen was fourth another 19 seconds behind Sellers, in a BMW powered J imco, and in fifth it was Ray Croll, a minute later, in a Toyota Chenowth. But the road up to Mike's and back proved to be the end for sev-eral of these guys, and not only did Christensen lose his motor, but so did Eli Yee, who had Doug Fortin as a co-driver this time in his Hon-da J imco. Also disappearing in here were Smitty Schmidt in his Honda Chenowth, and Richard Beck in a VW, as well as Jay Culbertson. Culbertson was one of the original Wide Open Baja en-tries from the Baja 2000, and he had so much fun in that event that he decided to build himself a car and go racing again. When they'd completed that sec-tion it was about three in the after-noon and Sellers was in the lead. Croll had rnoved up to second, about four minutes later, and in third it was Mark Hutchins in his Toyota Jimco. Melton, who'd had a few flats, ran fourth, about 20 minutes later, and in fifth place it was Ron Dalke, in his Tatum. fn the next section Hutchins' co-driver, Danny Anderson, had chased Sellers down and led by about three and a half minutes. Sellers was second, having no prob-lems except a rock in his shoe, and he said he just "got comfortable with it." Croll was third, and co-driver Darren Ebberts was prob-ably driving by now, and now Steve Myers, who'd taken over from George Erl in his Toyota Jimco, moved up to fourth, while Dalke held fifth.

Alan rween Steve Barlow _and his Ford transmission kept popping out ~f gear, was quick enough to take sec-ond for himself and Erl, while Dalke was third, about four min-utes later reporting a good day with no flats or problems. In fourth it was Melton and co-driver John Herder. Melton's morning h ad been fairly clean, but he'd had a couple of flats. As he charged up that nice, wide, flat road leading from the beach to Santo Tomas, Herder's right rear wheel came off. The car did some fancy sliding, and ended up parked in a ravine. There were some helpful local folks there, and they tried to help him, but the studs were messed up and a couple were missing. He lost an hour or so. And when he got to his pit they spent more time running around to find some replacement studs. They still managed to finish in fourth place. And in fifth spot it was Dave Sundquist and Jeff Gei-ser, in a Toyota Jimco, who had only a couple,of flats and "went off the mountain" a couple of times. In sixth place it was Mark Hutchins and Danny Anderson. Anderson, who'd climbed up to the front of th e pack, said he d idn't kn ow exactly what happened , but he "ran out of talent" and ended up rolling down an embankment. He was there for a while. Then, along came Stein berger, late in his Trophy Truck, and he stopped to help. He tied a tow strap to the buggy and yanked it up to the top of the hill, with Anderson in the driver's seat to steer. Just as it got to the top the tow strap broke, and Anderson rolled over three times on his way to the bottom for the second time. Steinberger left him the tow strap and went on. When Alan Pflueger came by in his Protruck he had better luck and this time the tow strap held, and Anderson was back on the course. Letner and Halopoff were seventh. Letner said he had lots of prob-lems: he lost his brakes, went off a cliff and hit a tree. Other than that, he said, "it was good." He thanked his grandpa (Danny Lerner) and Henry for all their help. In eighth place it was Mike Williams in a Honda Meco, and in ninth, Sean Sessa in a Toyota Jimco/Geiser. Sessa said there was a five foot ditch that "got" him at Mile 40 and he lost a couple of hours. Rick Geiser drove the M.ike's loop for him. Jerry and Will Higman finished tenth in their 2000cc Type IV VW powered Kreger chassis. It's a good lookin' new car, with a snazzy body but they said they had a "bunch of stupid little problems, new car stuff." That's a familiar story.

Kenny Stroud and Dave Richardson, seen here at the start, proved to be a good team, and they piloted their Jimco to third place in the SCORE Lite class. Troy Herbst and Larry Roese/er shared the driving in Herbst's Ford powered Truggy to take the win in Class 1, as well as the car/truck overall. Here they're passing Darren Ski/ton's Kia. other truck when Dan Hunt, al-ready about four hours off the pace, failed to make it. But now Hogan was probably in the lead, but our unofficial timers didn't get him written down. Barlow, who'd been stuck near Mike's was just four minutes in front of Pflueger who'd lost a bit of time. At the end of the next section Hogan had a 25 minute lead, and it was Barlow, who'd had a flat and some brake problems, in second place. Pflueger' s co-driver, Brian Stewart, ran third, another half hour down. . While the lead cars went on smoothly, the Ford of David Sykes and Marc Stein was having "all sorts of trouble", which included losing the power steering belt about 20 times. And Jim Stiles, who was hav-ing to solo this race because brother Jeff had shoulder surgery not long before the race, had no flats, but got himself high-centered on a rock. He was thinking, "I'm too old for this-." Gary Magness, who drove from the start to Santo Tomas in his Ford, was having a good day, as were Steve Knudson and Todd Burt, co-driving the other team truck at about the same pace. At Santo Tomas Wally Hrdlicka took over for Magness and Rob Kittleson took over for Burt. Then, when Hrdlicka rolled the truck coming out of Uruapan, Kittleson stopped to help. It turned out that Hrdlicka's truck had some-thing broken in the steering, and wouldn't turn as far left as it ought to. At the finish line the first truck to show up was Hogan, barely vis-ible through the post-sunset gloom, he rolled across the finish line with no lights. He never had any on the truck, that's why, he said, he "had to hurry." He was 14 minutes in front of Barlow who finished sec-ond. Pflueger and Stewart were third, another 45 minutes back, but were later given a technical [?Q for having the wrong brand of tire on the truck. That moved Sykes and Stein up to third place. This pair, a new team in this class, say they're enjoying the Protruck very much. Stiles, still mumbling about being too old, was fourth. Then came Knudson and Kittleson in fifth and Hrdlicka and Magness in sixth. John Becker was the final finisher, in just over 15 hours. Only three of this class failed to make it all the way. The Class 8 trucks went next, starting the day with seven trucks, most of whom had a hard day.

They'd hit a bump in Guadalupe Wash and lost a cyl-inder. They didn't know if they could make it or not, but, prod-ded by Curt LeDuc, who was riding and has a "never quit" attitude, they decided to keep adding oil and go on. Said Curt, "it either would, or it wouldn't." Thomas Greer had his Dodge in second place at Mile 132, only seven minutes back, and in third it was Juan Lopez, another 12 minutes back. Dave Raimonde had his Chevy in fourth place, but he'd already lost an hour or so with some problem. Just before they went up into the mountains, Greer stopped for fuel. Due to some unnoticed malfunc-ticrn of their "gravity quick fill stand" his truck got only 36 gallons. Greer's co-driver, Ben Myers, got in to do the Mike's loop and took off. But he ground to a halt at mile 215: out of fuel. (Ed. Note: Our calculator tells us they were getting about 2.5 miles per gallon.) By the time his crew could get to him with more fuel they had missed the clos-ing time of the nearby checkpoints. That was the end of the Greer truck.

Ron Dalke and Rich Ronco had an almost perfect day in their Tatum, and even with a brief off-course excursion finished in third place in Class 10. Gordon Frevel, Pedro Morales, Ricardo Morales and Leopoldo Morales drove their 2200cc Ty IV powered Baja Bug to the win in the Sportsman Buggy class. John Griffin and Mike Sabbarese shared the driving in their AM General Hummer and won the Stock Full class in the time of 17 hours and 19 minutes. also. The Vanderweys still led at the second Valle de Trinidad stop, and now they had nearly two hours on Raimonde. And when they reached Uruapan Raimonde was gone. It didn't get easy for the Vanderweys and LeDuc because they were never sure just how far the truck could make it, and they kept stopping to add oil. LeDuc did the driving from Trinidad to the finish, and the team made it all the way, finishing in a cloud of steam and sm.oke, to get the win. ltwas LeDuc's fourth Class 8 victory this season (not all in SCORE events of course). The SCORE Lite cars took the green flag next, with an entry of 17 cars. Three of them were out early. Tom Ridings, his personal cloud of bad luck still hovering over him, was gone in the early morning, and so was Mark Kyle, who came all the way out from Texas to break down early in his Mirage. And Shad Kennedy's co-driver, Chris Wyborny had the worst luck of all. He didn't see a ditch, hit it at about 70 miles per hour, and broke his back. He was airlifted out to Scripps, and as we write this he'd had surgery. Some bone from his hip was used to replace the missing bone in his back, two rods and four screws were inserted, and the hos-pital says they expect him to make 100% recovery. Chris surely faces a long rehabilitation period and we wish him the speediest possible re-covery. At Mile 132 the lead car was Jerry Penhall's Penhall, and he had only three minutes on Vic Bruck-mann and/ or Brian Coneen in their Jimc~. In third place it was Steve Greinke and Ty Godde in a Porter, another 19 seconds back. Ken Stroud had his Jimco in fourth place, and Mike Cohert and Tom Schilling ran fifth in another Jimco. The mountains bit a bunch of these folks. Schilling lost his steer-ing box and narrowly missed slid-ing off that nasry off-camber turn that catches so many folks and the Bruckmann/Coneen team disap-peared as well as Greinke/Godde. Toby Gaerin and his Jimco also faded away, as well as Mike Voyles, who's back to racing after a long time away. Too bad it didn't last longer. It was like a new race now, with the 2nd, 3rd and 5th place cars gone. Penhall was still in front when he got back to Valle de Trinidad, and he put L.J. Kennedy into the driver's seat for the rest of the way. They had 24 1ninutes on Stroud, whose co-driver, Dave Richardson, an old Baja hand, had done the Mike's loop. In third it was Arturo .Honold, who'd let his co-driver, Alberto Medina, take the middle part. Honold had flattened two rear tires at Mile 35, and since he had only one spare with him, had been forced to drive the 20 miles to a pit on one of those flats. Medina Dusty Times had nicely made up a lot of time had a broken steering rack on his for him.

Sanderson, in the meantime, had driven off the road and about 100 feet down into a ravine on the way to Erendira. That cost him over two hours. Seeley kept going, but McCallum did not. Seeley, who reported that someone had fed him barbecued chicken and ribs at his pit stop on the· beach, took the win. He was four hours and ten minutes up on Jakobson and Sanderson, who were second. McCallum and Heger, after looking good for so long, never got there thanks to a broken pin-ion gear. The Class 7 cars started next, Rodolfo Gomez, Marco Guzman and Rodi Amaya teamed in their Ford to take the win in Class 7 even after changing a transmission. with nine entries. Both Jorge Mendez and Isidro Ochoa failed to get to Mile 132, qut the rest arrived in fairly good order, with Ernesto Cervantes in front and Perry Mc-Neil 32 seconds behind him in his Ford. In third it was Chad McNeil, another 15 minutes back. Craig Turner, normally also up front in his Ford, had done a Seeley and slid off the side of the hill early, then been pulled back up by a bunch of Ensenada fans. Gotta love those local fans! Rodolfo Gomez, Marco Guzman and Rodi Amaya had al-ready changed a transmission in their Ford, and were moving fast once again. But the mountain roads were treacherous, and both Cervantes and Perry McNeil disappeared, as did Rafael Carrillo, and the team of Rick Taylor and Hector Salazar in Taylor's Ford. Now, with only three trucks left running, the team of Rodolfo Gomez, Marc Guzman and Rodi Amaya was leading in a Ford, with Chad McNeil just un-der an hour behind them; and in third, Craig Turner, another half hour down in his Ford. Turner had got his ignition wet in the flooded section and lost over an hour be-fore he could get the truck running again. By the time they reached Uruapan, with Gomez/Guzman and Amaya still leading, Turner had moved up to within an hour and 15 minutes of them, and Mc-Neil was over two hours behind him. But then Gomez/Guzman and Amaya had no more problems (un-less you count the fact that they forgot to put a stub can on the car) and went on to finish first. Turner had them in sight at about 90 miles out, but then the lower passenger side control arm broke. By the time he had it fixed and got going again it was a close thing with the cut-off time. But he made it for the finish and second place, in 19 hours and 48 minutes. Tired and crotchety SCORE officials spent some extra time on the radio verifying the pres-ence of the first truck at all the ap-propriate checks, because, while they'd tried to save the stubs in their gloves and pockets, invariably, some turned up missing. The 1/2-1600 buggies took off next, and all but three made it the first 132 miles. Juan Naranjo and Mike Leung were two of the early DNFs, and the third was a gentle-man named Ramirez. Up at the head of the pack Brian Ickier was in front in his Jirnco, with Kash Vessels giving him a good fight, four minutes later in his Chenowth. In third it was Gus Vildosola, Jr. in his Jimco, only two seconds back. Alejandro and Leonardo Navarrete ran fourth in a Jimco, and in fifth it was Chuck Sacks.

John Marking and Rob MacCachren looked like certain overall winners in their VB powered Jimco, but broke very late in the day, to put an end to their hopes. Mark Miller drafted Larry Ragland to finish the day in his Protruck Andrew Myers piloted his V6 Camry powered Jimco to 3"1 in Class 1 turned Trophy Truck and the pair took the win in their slightly battered with a flawless drive. His family entered three cars all told, and appeared. Eric Duran moved his Chenowth into third place, only 10 minutes back, and the Navarrete brothers were fourth, followed by Steve Roberts in a Lothringer. Rob-erts had already had two flats and a roll-over, but the car was still in good shape. Vildosola had disap-peared, and so had Hector Na-varro. Vessels got out and Jason Hatz took over, and he had just three minutes on Ickler's co-driver, Dar-ren Hardesty, as thev reached Uruapan. Rick Boyer took over for Roberts, and he was now third, another 23 minutes back. The Navarretes were in here somewhere, but the unofficial scorers failed to note down their time, and Ken Browne now moved his Dunrite up to fifth. He was driving the whole distance. By now Victor Lugo had broken down, and so had Jeff and Mickey Quade, but we don't know what happened to either car. Things got busy in the final 100 miles. Hardesty had a flat and the spare had so much mud on it, that he couldn't break it loose, and was forced to travel a distance, and up a big hill, still on his flat tire. He also broke a throttle cable after Ojos Negros, and since for these guys it was good and dark, he Chevy. couldn't see to make repairs, since he didn't have a flashlight. So he just used his vise grips to jam it on, and headed for the finish. Hatz got to within 30 miles and something major broke in the rear. It was ei-ther a torsion bar, adjuster or spring plate, and the end result was a left rear corner only an inch or so off the ground, and a right front corner barely touching ground. He did not enjoy the ride from that point on. The Navarretes had a flat and changed it, and then went a distance and the wheel came off. They had to wait for a new wheel and tire to be brought to them. But in spite of everything, they got to the finish line. Vessels and Hatz took the win, Hatz grumbling about what a terrible ride it had been. Browne, who'd had nothing more serious than losing a "little oil", moved up to finish second, only 12 minutes later. In third it was Duran, who didn't stop to talk, and in fourth it was Roberts and Boyer. Boyer had nothing beyond one flat. The Navarretes had dropped to fifth place, a n1.inute behind fourth.

They had an interesting day, what with a sheared spring plate bolt, a roll-over and a broken front brake drum. They bought a replacement front drum from a Mexican bystander. Man-ess, who hails from Colorado, was having a great time. They finished at about 1: 10 a.m. Travis and Brad Fletcher had flat tires and ignition problems and stuck their car off a cliff. But they finished in ninth place. And last to finish was the team of Lorenzo Rodriguez and Joe and Brian Jeffrey in a Jimco. This team of veterans lost a hydraulic clutch line at Mike 8, finally got a throttle cable and pieced things to-gether at Ojos Negros, then got a replacement part from Ridings at Valle de Trinidad and got the thing fixed. They were tenth, the last 1600 car to finish in 17 hours and 55 minutes. The 7S trucks got the green flag next, in a group of seven. Eduardo Diaz was the only one who didn't make it to the Valle de Trinidad area, but a couple of those who did were already struggling. Pepe Rod-riguez, in a Ford, had major prob-lems and took five hours and 44 minutes to get there. In the front of the group, however, was Eric 1.800.700.2350 • Fax 909.360.0436 3834 Wacker Drive • Mira Loma, CA 91752 Page 18 July 2002 finished all three of them. Hardin in a GMC. He had 21 sec-onds on Cory Susag in a Chevro-let. And in third it was Daniel Fresh, in a Jeep, who was about 45 min-utes back. He had an overheating problem, and was taking all the water crossings "full on" to cool things down. When they arrived back down out of the mountains, Susag was in front, with 27 minutes on Hardin. Fresh was third, over an hour later, and Bob Graham ran fourth in a Toyota. Rodriguez was gone by now and so was Alfonso Bernardino. Susag got out and Doug Siewart took over, and he had no problems either, and held on to the lead. At Uruapan they had 25 minutes on Hardin. Fresh got there after dark, and was happy to find that his truck cooled off somewhat after the sun went down. Mike Horner, who took over for Graham, was still fourth. And they ran that way to the finish line. Susag and Siewert re-ported a flawless day, without even a flat. Hardin finished about 36 minutes behind them, in second place. In third it was Fresh, and al-most an hour behind him Horner and Graham came in reporting a broken torsion bar somewhere along the way. Class 5-1600 was next to start, with 21 cars and lots of potential winners. A whole mess of 'em couldn't get the first 132 miles done, and we don't know why. But all of the following bombed out early: Roberto Jimenez, Hector Rodriguez, Enrique Avalos, Hector Sarabia, Sergio Hernandez and Jeff Holmes, Jr. Rob Taylor went into the lead, with three minutes on Vic-tor Herrera in the Negrete car. Miguel Rosales and Edmundo Fernandez were third, and Ernesto Armabula and his brother Adolfo ran fourth, with Mario Salazar in fifth place. Allan Gregory had tipped his car up onto its side, crum-pling the bodywork, before he even got to Ojos Negros. In the next section three more entries disappeared: Daniel Lopez, Oscar Galinda and John Castillo. Our time-keepers missed some of the cars going through Valle de Trinidad the second time, probably because so many were covered with mud from that flooded section that it was impossible to read their numbers. Nunez and Rivera were having electrical problems, and so were Oscar and Jaime Venegas, who'd also replaced a transmission. The Arambulas had shred of the foam that lines their fuel cell in their fuel lines, and clogging things up pretty badly. When asked how old the fuel cell was they laughed. Rosales and Fernandez were at or near the front, and so were the Negretes and Herrera, and the Le-dezmas. Mario had started and had gone into a ditch early and lost a half hour. Danny got in at San Telmo and had trouble right away. He had a front flat, lost a rear brake cylinder and when that was . fixed his starter wasn't working. He had to bump start it on a hill. Then he had a rear flat, and by then had no spare. So he put the flat on the front and a front on the rear to climb the hill up towards Mike's. Near Simpson's he finally got a tire from someone. Down near Santo Tomas he ran out of gas. Rob Tay-lor was running well in this section, also near the front. Itwasjustdarkwhen the leaders in this class came into Uruapan. The Ledezmas were in front, but Rosales and Fernandez were up there also, and so were Herrera and the Negretes, Larry and Ernie. They'd blown an oil cooler and had a new one put on out on the bench, and had lost four positions, of which they'd regained three by now. Pabloff and Fernandez had a flat and then their wheel came off a bit later. When they found it they-had to cannibalize nuts from the other wheels to hold it on. Fernandez and Rosales, both from Ensenada, came back home as the winners of the class. They had the least entertaining race of all, having only one flat tire all day. In second it was Herrera and the two Negretes, who'd had other trouble, but no flats. They were 45 minutes behind the winners. In third it was Ledezma, coming across the line quietly, pushing the car the final 100 yards or so. The transmission had been howling since Erendira. Also, the motor was losing com-pression in one cylinder, so he'd been babying it. But then when he was almost to the finish line the transmission locked up. Danny took one axle off-so it would roll, coasted for a while, then pushed it across the line and down to tech. He said it had been "one thing af-ter another." Pabloff and Fernandez were fourth a half hour later and followed in by Nunez and Rivera. Rivera had rolled ten miles out of Ojos, landed on his wheels, but it broke a brake drum and he'd had no brakes the rest of the way. They were sixth, 11 minutes out of fifth. In seventh it was Oscar and Jaime Venegas, who'd had little trouble after replacing that trans-mission. Allan and Steve Kobayashi were eighth, losing time when Kobayashi broke an axle. In ninth it was Ruben Gutierrez, and Rob Taylor, who led early in the day, finished 10th and last, only seven minutes before he would have run out of time. The Stock Full class had only two entries, and John Griffin and his AM General Hummer went into the lead from early on. Griffin drove to Mile 130, and his co-driver, Mike Sabbarese got in and went to Mile 271. They were having no problems. Jose Pitones ran sec-ond through Mile 132, but then Dusty Times -t

Gronholm noted, "I think even including last year's Portugal, the condi-tions on the second day were the worst I have ever met in European rallying." This was supported by his second place teammate , Richard Burns, "On one stage we were not driv-ing on mud, we were driving on water, but I think it is more exciting chis time of year." The Cyprus Rally, the fifth round out of 14 jn the World Rally Championship, comes into the second quarter of the series and yet was the first or-thodox gravel event of the sea-son and the first in over four months. It was the third suc-cessive rally in the Mediterra-nean region. Cyprus is the slowest event in the series, al-though last year's twistiest roads were not being used this time and this year's event was the shortest in terms of stage distance ever, though not in terms of the length of time the cars would be running at maxi-mum speed. Traditionally, Cyprus ha_s been the hottest event of the series, but now was run at an earlier date and to what extent it would be cooler than before remained to be seen. The six regular champion-ship teams had entered, but, as planned, Automobiles Cit-roen were absent. There were no special technical surprises. Peugeot, for the first time in sen '; 2.5" 2.5" --€1'!4~ recent events ran four works dlrs (gravel rally cade t driver Panizzi having the tea m s re-built test car). The pressure was on Ford, the winners of both previous Cyprus world rallies. Colin McRae's broken finger was improving and he planned to use an orthodox right handed gear change system this time (a special left handed de-vice was used in Catalunya, but he said, "Cyprus is a bad rally for someone with a hand in-jury, it is the worst event of them all for having to hold on to the steering wheel!" Luis Moya was back, .nursing his ribs that were broken in the first of Sainz's Cacalunya crashes, but he opted out of· pre-event test work. Being unsure of the weather conditions, teams came pre-pared for hot weather and the need to have special cooling devices. Subaru had an interior fan and changes were made to the roof scoop. There was still no news of a return to compe-tition for Makinen's co-driver, Mannisenmaki. Mitsubishi en-tered a third car at the last moment for Jani Paasonen, again at the wheel of a reno-vated rest car. Hyundai made a surprise fourth entry for their asphalt specialist Tomasz Kuchar, with no gravel driving opportunity at all. Skoda were using active rear differentials on gravel for the first time on two cars. This was the third round out of eight in the Production Car World Rally Champion.-Need coil springs?

Karamijit Singh and Allen Oh took the Group N honors and were 17th overall in their Proton Pert. Tommi Makinen and his Subaru lmpreza took the third place overall position, shown here in dry conditions. Colin McRae and Nicky Grist drove their battered Ford Focus RS to sixth overall, a pretty good accomplishment. ship, and the only event in the series to have been selected by every competitor as one of their six qualifying events. This was the World Rally debut of Subaru's latest Group N Im-preza WRX, the Type GD Sti version, fitted with a specially homologated five speed gear-box, driven by Toshihiro Arai. More drivers had progressed from EYo VI to VII models, though some preferred the VI for this event. Both Trelles and Ferreyros opted for Vlls, be-cause of the shorter wheelbase, more suitable on such a twisty event. Hamed Al Wahaibi was a non-starter, his anticipated funds not being available be-cause of the Middle East cri-sis. Manfred made his first WCR entry with a Ford Focus and McShea was loaned an old version Group N by rally pa-tron John Lloyd;, Another Ar-gentine driver appears on the European scene for the first time, Luis Perez Companc. Championship-wise, pat-terns were being formed. Peu-geot started the event with as many world championship points so far this season as all the other 1nan ufacturers to-gether! Collectively their driv-ers have scored even more than their rivals, 60 points out of a possible 104. This was the first gravel event on which the new offi-cial FIA reverse order regula-tion was enforced and whereas the declared objective was to bunchy the top runners to-gether and reduce the need for unsporting ga1nes1nanship tac-tics, the weather had a hand. Ford mastermind Phil Short noted, "There are many un-knowns about this event. Firstly, people forget the effect of the double uses of stages, so the stage cleaning only takes place on some of the stages. Then the roughness of the course is bound to have its ef-fect. There are high chances of punctures and damage to wheels and suspension, not to mention the effect of tire wear and the softness caused by re-cent rains. Actually, I think the Peugeot drivers running at the head of the field might have an advantage under the rules this time!" · Leg 1-Six stages, gravel, 96kms. Finally 60 cars took the start, the first world rally in which every single car was turbocharged and with four wheel drive. It was Ford all the way, with three different drivers leading on the first three stages, before Colin McRae slowly started to inch ahead.

CODE SAN FELIPE, BC, MX GrupoTersa BFGoadrich 200 Text & Photos:Byrle Moore Elisandro Yee finished the race in less than four hours, first in Class 10 and a sparkling first overall as well. While most of Southern San Diego County and the Northwestern Baja Peninsula either put up with or worried about "April Showers", the last weekend of the month, Saturday, in San Felipe, dawned bright and clear. Not too many "May Flowers" in the hills and deserts around the race course, but with a variable breeze all day long. lt was a nearly perfect day, for racing. lt turned out to be a more nearly perfect day for some drivers than others, but all racers and fans alike seemed to have a great weekend. With 41 bikes and quads entered, and only 11 finishing for a 25% finish rate, it was a little less perfect for the smaller two and four wheel classes, than for the cars and trucks, which started 113 and finished 58, or a start/finish rate of slightly over 50%. This is one of the CODE races than combine M/Cs, Quads, witl1 the Cars and Trucks and Aaron Tuck, riding out of Brawley, CA was able to out last Sergio Vega, over from Ensenada to win the M/C Open Pro. There were less than four minutes separating the two riders.Tucks' time of 2: 16:53 also brought him the overall win for the bike and quad classes. Second place and second overall went to Vega with a time of 2:20:10. Third place in class and third overall in ilie division went to Steve Rich, from La Mesa, CA., with a nice time of 2:33:53 for the one lap 114 mile course. Fourth in the Pro class was Rodolfo lribe, who rides out of San Diego. lribe's time was 2:44:49 and sixth went to Alex Martinez, down from Mexicali, who finished in 3:52:47. ln the M/C c!~ss, 250 Bro there TRANSAXLE ENGINEERING, INC.

German Martinez, also from Mexicali was the third rider in this class, but was dnf/ no time. l11ere were three entries in the Pro 125 M/C also, but here only one rider managed to get a time, and that was Tijuana's Tito Colon, who tdpk the class with 3:01:20 reading. The otl1er two entrants had no time. They were Nestor D. Castro, another Mexicali rider and Luis Santos out of Chula Vista, CA. Eight riders started the Quad Open Pro and five made it to the checkered flag. First in class and fourth overall in M/Cs and Quads was Arturo Salas, one of several rider-drivers out of Tijuana. Sales' winning time was 2:39:11. Second in class and eighth overall was Tito Buendia, from TJ with a time of 2:46: 15, and third with a time of 2:48:25 wentto Ismael Gonzalez, down out of Mexicali. Saul Bojorquez was fourth with 2:55:20 and fifth went to Oscar Mejia in at 3:10:03. The M/C Open Sportsman class had 11 entries and seven crossed the finish line for times. First in class was Sergio Torres out of Tijuana with a time of 2:44:31, second spot went to Manuel Salazar from San Diego, his time was 2:53:50 and one minute behind was Miguel Mercado, with a time of2:54:50. Mercado rides out of San Diego also. The fourth spot in this class went to Ocon Guzman from Mexicali, his time was 2:56:58 and Rene Magana, San Diego, came in fifth witl1 another under tlrree hour time. That time was 2:59:02. The Quad Open Sportsman class started ten and all but one finished the demanding sometimes-technical course. Adolfo Arrellano, Tijuana, crossed first in three hours, one minute and 16 seconds. Second spot went to Javier Rob !es with a time of 3:03:19 and Francisco Espinoza Rios took third with a time of 3: 10: 16. Fourili place went to Jose Selem with 3: 13:49.

No, they weren't holding hands as iliey crossed the finish line. That brings to the close of the one lap section of the race featuring Quads and Motorcycles. Some of the earliest finishers were heading for the checkered flag, even as the cars, trucks, and buggies, were waiting for the green.

Not one of the classes had the same amount of finishers as starters. The first 40 miles were "forty miles of bad road". As stated before the course was technical and demanding like all races in San Felipe are, and the Grupo Tersa lived up to that history. In the PRO class, the Class 1 entries were all "good old boys" from up north. Four entries and three of them made it across the finish line. Miles Wyatt out of Brawley led the pack with a first place class and his time of 4: 13:46, was good enough for second over all. Remember, these guys did two laps and almost 230 miles. Wyatt reported no major problems and put his father Larry behind the wheel for the run to the checkered. Second in class and third overall, for the big stuff, was Josh Waddell, racing out of Holtville. Kirk Waddell, the team leader and the father of Josh said, "The transmission was making some very funny noises and we were leaking some fluid,.but because Josh nursed the shifts, and didn't power cut after each shift, we were able to make it to the checkered flag. Hey, we were glad to finish, let alone winning second in class and taking third place overall." Their time was 4:33:25. Speaking of finishing, the Riviera Racing Team brought their new trophy truck down just to test it out for the rest of the season. With Nick Baldwin behind the wheel, the team did several practice laps on Thursday and Friday just to get a feel for the truck and to work out any problems that might crop up. However, during the actual competition on Saturday, the tranny gave out around Mile Marker 27. They replaced the transmission and went another 100 plus miles only to blow a front shock reservoir in almost the same place during the second lap, they replaced that too and were able to finish in the allotted time. Even with the "27 mile marker jinx" they ran the course in 7:15:18. . The final Class 1 entrant Steve Scaroni, from Heber, CA, was leading in class and was also the overall leader, in his Pro-truck until Mile 80 of the second lap. At that point he overshot a tum, went into a small ravine, and managed several endos. Steve and his co-rider, came out of it with a few safety harness bruises, but were otherwise, all right. The same couldn't be said for the truck so it was a no time/ dnf. However, we can make a safe bet, that both driver and truck will return to the frays ahead.

Tom Watson drove the last part of the race and neither reported any problems. Second place went to Federico Regala, in his very first race. Regala, from Mexicali also reported a clean, no problems race. His time was 5:28:28. What is it they say about "beginner's luck"? Nice job Federico. Third spot went to Martin Juan Lopez, from Tecate, had a great day, driving his Ford to the Class 8 win in five and a quarter hours. Hats off to Michelle Gastelum, she flew around the course in her neat looking bug, took the Class 5 win and was eighth overall as well. Gonzalez, also out of Mexicali.

July 2002 There was protest from another class entry (#504) about excessive nerfing, which cost Richard Coronado his second spot. Coronado's time was 5: 15: 13, but since he didn't appear to give his side of the nerfing story, the penalty and the bump to third place stood. Second place was awarded to Armando Bravo, who had been having overheating and brake problems throughout the day. Bravo's time was 8: 12:44. Pat Barbee from Holtville and Beny Canela from lndio had various problems and were n/ts. Three entries in Class 5 and only Michelle Gastelum, from Tijuana, in her new, completely redone car, made it the whole distance with a time of 5: 19: 18. This time also earned her eighth overall.

Pedro Penate/lo won the 250 Pro Class, certainly worth the trip down from Fontana, CA for a class win. Josh Waddell was second in the Class 1 conflict, third overall and Nick Baldwin did a shakedown on his new Trophy Truck, had lots of had to back pedal a bit after hearing some strange noises. problems but still managed a finish. Something about "being treated and respected as a driver not as a female driver." Well, when you back up your words with action it's easy to say, "Way to go Gastelum." The other two class entries were Conrad Diaz, San Gabriel, CA, who broke the transmission in his pink? convertible. Diaz was just happy to be back into racing after a four year break. Jose Guadalupe Collins from Mexicali, blew an engine, and was dnf, but should be back for the next race. Rafael Reyez, Tijuana was also a non-finisher. With a total of 17 entries, Class 7 was the largest class in the Grupo Tersa. Jason Jernigan from Imperial, CA out lasted all 17 with a time of 4:38:46, which got him the class win, fourth overall and the biggest payback of the day. Jernigan also took home $1,500 from Home Saga. Not a bad payday for a little over four and a half hours work. Second spot and 10th overall went to Perry McNeil, out of Lemon Grove, who nursed a less than great running truck through the 230 miles for a time of 5:21:42. Perry, also took home an extra $1,000 from Home Saga. In at third was Willie Valdez over from Ensenada. His 6:04:57 time earned him $500 from Homa Saga. Thanks go our to Home Saga for the added monies to the Class 7 drivers; there might by 27 entries in this class next time out. Other class finishers were Chad McNeil, 6:28:33, Jose Gonzalez, 6:44:02, Geoff Milke, 7:39:36, Mario Salcido, 7:49:29, and Romeo Rodriguez, 7:57:52.

Marcos Nunez, Ensenada, reported no problems and finished first with a time of 6:03:21, second spot went to Jason Gregory, El Cajon, CA, his time was 6: 10: 26, and third place went to Julian Patron, Chula Vista, in at 6:59:34, Larry Negrete, 7: 13:43, Jorge Ruvalcaba, 7:18:34, Jorge Angel Soto, 7:55:16, and Miguel A. Rosales, 8:34:35 were the other 5-1600 drivers with times. In Class 9 all three first place finishers had one problem or another. Juan Mayoral, Jr., who was the eventual winner ran out of fuel near one of his pits and lost some time when The Auto Club of Baja didn't show up with fuel. He had to figure a way to make it to the pits; in this case, it was called pushing. Mayoral's time was 6: 19:41. Finishing No:2 was Francisco Fernandez, who was slowed all day with a loose pulley belt and ultimately just plain fatigue, crossed the finish in 6:29:07. Third place went to Daniel Reyes, who struggled with carburetor problems throughout the entire race but still managed at 7: 18:05. Five out of the other 11 starters had times.

SCCA PRORALLY SERIES 2002 Rim Of The world Rally By John P.M. Dillon Photos: Trackside Photo David Higgins and Daniel Barritt drove their great looking Subaru lmpreza to the Open Class win as well as the overall at Rim. The 2002 edition of the Rim of the World Rally, headquartered in Palmdale, CA, saw 81 cars at the start-ing line ~n May 3, a new record for Rim. "Our sport has enjoyed explosive growth in the last few years," said organizer Paula Gibeault. "We worked closely with our friends at the Forest Service to be allowed to start rnore cars this year. I'm happy to say t hat they were willin g to try out a larger limit and we filled every spot." In addition to providing the roughest roads on the SCCA ProRally circuit since Prescott was removed from the calendar, Rim featured two spectacular stages adja-cent to host hotel Holiday Inn, as well as a major fund raiser event for the local Boys and Girls Club and the Antelope Valley Search and Rescue team. For some of t h e fans, in-cluding hundreds of Subaru enthusiasts, the h ighlight of the weekend may be have been meeting World Rally Cham-pionship driver Petter "Hol-lywood" Solberg. Solberg, who proved to be as friendly and accessible as any begin-ner club rallyist, detnon-strated his star quality by help ing raise over $1200 for the local charities. Rim has a reputation for punishing unprepared team.s with its bone-jarring water bars (grooves cut across the Miggie Motorsports Spring Cleaning 1987 Ford Pre-runner $13,000 obo Ford Ranger Class 7 2.9V6 Fuel Injected Mogi Transmission Art Carr 3 Speed Shifter 9" Locker Rear End K1ng Shocks F&R Disc Brakes F&R Fully Caged For Info Call; Michael Jakobson 805-386-1243 Office 805-701-9058 Cell Todd Sanderson 760-942-9904 Office 760-535-9673 Cell SCORE Class 5 Unlimited $45,000 obo $20,000 less Eng & Trans Molton Chromo Frame Rev-Power 3 Liter Type IV Fortin 5 Speed Trans With Oil Cooler System King Coilovers F&R King Bypass F&R Centerlines-BFG's Also: Have A Trophy Truck Project For Sale Not Completed - Call For Info Page 30 July 2002 Craig Peeper and Ian Bevan rush by an appreciative crowd on their way to the Group N win in their Subaru WRX. road to contr o l drainage), b u t t h is year m a n y of th e roads were smoother than in past events. N o n etheless, nu-merous cars faile d to finish the grueling event. In previous yea rs even the spectato r stages have b een known to take no prisoners and 2002 was n o exception . The highest profile v ictim of this year's first stage was past ch ampion Rod Millen who debuted a new Mitsubish i Lancer Evo VII. A suspensio n failure on th e car meant the veteran rally is t was back in t he hotel bar before the rest of the teams made it to the mountains for· the first "real" stages. Like Millen, Doug Shep-herd didn't do well on the spectator stage but at least he and Pete Gladycz were able to continue. "Pete and I had aq adventuresome rally in the Dodge SRT-4," reported Shepherd. " W e broke the right halfshaft in Turn 4 of the spectator stage,· which left us with one wheel drive until service. Not impossible as I practiced this frequently 15 years ago in t h e Daytona, but a slow way to get to service. Uphill on gravel with one w heel drive is s lower than walking! We were lucky there was a bunch of pavement." Meanwhile M illen's son Rhys was more successful at the beginning -he led the rally after the first two stages, tie-ing for quickest on the short spectator stage and picking up over 20 seconds over 2001 champiOJ:?. Mark Lovell on Stage 2. However, a flat tire on the third stage and a wrong turn cost him over six minutes. Two stages later a broken differential ended the day for him and Garry Cowan.

Lovell finisl1.ed the first evening in fourth p lace. Lagemann fin-ished the night sandwiched between the Higgins broth, ers, with Mark first overall. In Group N, it was Peter W o rkum wh o took th e early lead. Workum's driving has improved significantly over t h e past year. He and co-driver Alex Gelsomin o fi n-ished the first day ninth over-all, almost two minutes ahead of Wyeth Gubeltnan n and Therin Pace. Ralph Kosmides and Jimmy Brandt narrowly avoided getting time barred after losing both a cylinder and the right front suspen-sion in their Ruby's Restau-rant Subaru. A week before Rim, PGT racer John Nelson didn't know who he'd have co-driv-i ng for him. At the last minute he hooked up with Mustafa Samii, a veteran of many years of European and· middle eastern rallies. The pair worked well together, seizing a narrow early lead over Bob Henderson and Jeff Field and David Weiman churned up the dust as they sped to the Production win in their Celica GTS. Dusty Times

Growing tired of the age old practice of pre-running courses on motorcycles, off road drivers began exploring the idea of creating a sturdy four wheel vehicle strictly for the purpose of famil-iarizing themselves with courses they were about to compete on.

Tony Licitra's Chevy had a flat and he had to stop for a new tire, which put him down a lap. They were still running in the same order at the end of the third lap, with Dennis Dugan Dwight Lunkley's partner, in fourth place. Gary Magness got up on two wheels and did a donut down in the bowl.

Kenji Morii, from Japan, had problems with his right hand drive Mitsubishi, which included a broken turbocharger which left him seriously down on power.

Simpson was back, and he was trying hard to catch Alvarez. By Lap 6 with Masakazu still in front and Hanawa second, Simp-son had moved up to third and he had Hanawa in his sights. Morii was having some problem with his Mit-subishi again, he had rear drive only and was down on power and he'd lost a lap. When they came around the ninth time Hanawa was right on Mazakazu's bumper and Simpson was gaining on both, but that struggle was to continue. Nobu pulled into the infield with a rear flat and a lap later Alvarez parked also with what he thought was a broken steering box.

Pit crews that had radio communications worked like the spotters in NASCAR races, tell-ing their drivers where the com-petition was, a big help for the driver who doesn't mind having a little voice in his ear. The order stayed the same; Stewart, Johnson and Dickerson. Dickerson would get closer to Johnson, then fall back, and Dugan would be on him like a sticker, but by the sixth lap they were becoming pretty well spread out, and still in the same order. Licitra had a little problem with the infield turn, but didn't lost a position, and Johnson seemed to close up on Stewart in the turns. On the 11th lap he was right with him, and Dugan was close on Dickerson, but then they spread out again. By the 14th lap Stewart was closing up on Hrdlicka, who was running last this time, and while the crews wondered if he would slow Stew-art and let Johnson close up, Hrdlicka pulled neatly to the side and let him go.

The "two hour" Enduro was the final event of the weekend, but there was a break now for the crews to get the trucks back in shape for racing. When the race finally started there were two miss-ing. Dickerson said he'd lost oil pressure during the main event, so he chose not to race, and Johnson opted out also. There were eight of the "buggies" still running, including all of the Japa-nese contingent, but lacking Sim-pson. For this event, as they had for some of the big bike events, the ORF chose to run the "long" course, which went up the hill, around a section of jungle, made a sweeping off camber turn and then came back down, adding about a half mile to the length of the track. One foreseeable prob-lem was the dust. Guam was in the midst of a severe drought (very reminiscent of Southern California's, with people being asked to not wash cars, etc.), and in the interest of conserving wa-ter, they hadn't run the water truck any more than was abso-lutely necessary. And, while it took a run up and around the hill, it couldn't lay down enough moisture to really help with just one application. So it would be dusty. Kin Pangelinian got the hole shot for this one, his Mini-Mag looking mighty small out th.ere with Hanawa's Isuzu right behind it. Then came Alvarez, and in fourth place it was Geno Lici tra, son of Tony, who was driving his first truck race. He has raced bikes. Hanawa took over the lead on the second lap, and Licitra passed Alvarez and was now trying to get by Pangeli11ian. Morii's Mitsubi-shi was smoking, but it kept mov-ing. And Flores, with a new mo-tor in his chassis, had some other problem and was lagging behind, and soon to be lapped. Henry Simpson, his Chenowth buggy out of commission, was driving the Herzog truck with one of the race sponsors riding along. Rob Kittleson was in the Magness truck, with Senator Larry ~asperbaucr, one of the politi-cians instrumental in getting the race track built, riding along. Alvarez, who co mes from Spain, raced here in 2001 and he had a four gallon fuel tank at that time and stopped several times for fuel. This time he was running his 10 gallon tank, and would not have to make any fuel stops. Licitra was past both Mini-Mags and in second place by the third lap. Morii lagged behind and made a pit stop on his fourth lap. Licitra pushed hard, trying to catch Hanawa, but on the fifth lap he disappeared up around the top turn. Hanawa was still in front, now followed by Alvarez, Pangelinian and Nobu. Word came through that Licitra's truck was on its side in the hole at the edge of the off-camber turn. Both driver and passenger were said to be alright. A medic team on a quad began to make an approach, thinking to go up and check on their welfare. There is no buffer zone between the course and the jungle, unfortunately. If a vehicle needed to get up to that point the only way to go was on the course. Perhaps in the future there will be an access road blitzed through the jungle, but right now there's either jungle or race course. The race course is, at least, very wide and visibility is good for most of it. Meanwhile, the race went on. Hanawa continued to lead, fol-lowed by Alvarez, but now Den-nis Dugan ran third, having moved up on the tenth lap. The quad that was trying to approach the course by moving along the edge of the downhill (against traf-fic) made Kittleson move over unexpectedly, and as he did Alvarez was bounding down the hill, thinking to pass him, and he ended up with one of his front Dusty Times

(Ain't no Wahzoo) Well folks, I have had an interesting month pass by since last writing so I think I'll jump right in and share it. First off, great news. I have nego-tiated a lease on Checkerville so we won't be homeless after all. I've always said there's nothing worse than a whole gaggle of home-less Checkers wandering the streets! This means ya'll got no reasons for not coming to meetings. We are currently making decisions about how much fun to allow our-selves at our July 27th summer party in Cal City. We have purchased six new awesome pit boxes and are planning among many other things, to raffle off the old Checker pit boxes out there. To have a shot at these pieces of Checker history you must be there partying with us. There'll be loads of food and enter-tainment to be· had by all, come to the meet-ings for details. We had a couple races during May to keep us finely honed at what we do best. The MORE is MORE Lucerne Valley Race on May 19th drew out a handful of Check-ers with two cars compet-ing, a bachelor party and a chilly cook off all hap-pening. Jim Clemens once again put on a great event with seven rough ,20 mile loops. Gary Bates brought out his cool tandem car and split the driving with B.J. An excited Austin rode the whole way with his Uncle and Grandfa-ther keeping the thrills a coming. They ran strong all day finishing with a respectable fourth place. Maxine contrib-uted a couple mill ion gallons of her world fa-mous spaghetti salad to the chilly cook off after the race. Now we also had Marq with a Q out there hosting his going away, I mean bachelor party and giving his brand new four seater a shake down in Class 1. Marq had some design flaws giving him trouble, but that's to be expected with any new race car, fortunately he had Checker Pit B on hand. Pit captain Josh Gilliam, John Murphy, Fred Nel-son with young Fred, a friend and I were ready to weld his front shock towers back in place and do a little recon run to drag him off the course. Marq was out on Lap 5 with the rear spindle parting ways with the rest of his car, no chance for repair even by Check-ers. The Baja 500 for me was a great experience this year, kind of a race with a view so to speak. Michael Lee and I headed up a Checker Relay from 8,000 ft. by the observatory. Weath-erman Bo·b steered us into a primo locatio.n just below the observa-tory. I have a new found respect for what he does for all the racers at ev-ery race. We had great communications with cars and crews alike, no problems reaching both sides of the peninsula. With seven entries out there to keep an ear on, we stayed busy. We also were able to reach all our pits, n problems. We had pits at the road to Mike's. Malcolm Bryce with Alex Long and Mark Herrick handled that one, next was San Telmo with Dan Martin and Sporto handling things, then over to Valle de Trinidad where Gary Bates was the cap-tain. Gary had his # 1 helper Maxine with him along with Bobby McCall. I know we kept Bobby busy running back and forth to BFG's· pit. Next on the course was the always present Jorge Espino covering Erendira. George is al-ways a professional pres-ence and a pleasure to deal with on the radio. Next pit was the Santo Tomas pit with Randy Spahr as Pit Captain. He helped out by V.P.

Mal-colm saw the need for this pit to exist and de-cided to take it on after he closed up his pit at the road to Mike's. This is not the first time Mal-colm has com~ thru by taking the tough pits or double pits, this guy is pure Checker. I know we had a lot more Check-ers running around the pits because I was run-ning into them at Thumpers annual Bash at the Bahia on Friday. Unfortunately, I got cor-nered outside the meet-ing and didn't get to hear all the pit reports, anyway, thanks to _all of you pitting. Now let's talk drivers here. We had six cars and Mike Childress on 15x running. Tom Koch ran his pro truck, Billy Robertson and Stuart Chase Class 1, George Seeley IN HIS 5 CAR, Jimmy Hook and Cash Vessels ran 1600, Ty Goode ran 1200 and Tommy Dittfield and Darrin McGuffin ran in Class 9. Tom's truck was knocked out right when Lee Patton hooked up on some rocks and tore up the front end the day early. George Seeley, Jr., in his championship style once again showed us what it takes to win. Ty Goode was running with Steve Greinke and ran into clutch problerns somewhere after Valle de Trit.idad and was DNF. Tom Dittfield and Darrin McGuffin ran up front in Class 9 almost to the end when prob-lems end their day and they wound up DNF. Stu-art Chase and Billy Rob-ertson ran strong all day and wound up with a ninth in class. We were all well informed of the. Car 122's progress in the later parts of the race course with Tony Tellier's mileage up-dates which were helpful to us doing the radio re-lay and had to rely on what we heard. Mike Childress wound up with a seventh place finish in class and we were kept abreast of his progress by Reverend Roy, who was chasing Mike. Roy was helpful in relaying mes-sages to cars and pits as he ·was ahead of the progress of our cars. Once again a great job by everyone down there showing off our Checker pride racing and pitting. Checker pits and driver entries are already filling for the upcoming MDR Kartek 400 and pit boards are always out for sign ups to every race. · Keep your eyes pee led for news coming soon on our Expo booth and su-per special raffle.

From The Director The Gibeault family and their army of volun-teers pulled off another spectacular Rim of the World Rally. They handled a big field of rally cars, 7 8 starters, a record number of spec-tators, and a huge pres-ence by the big three rally car manufacturers: Subaru, Mitsubishi and Hyundai. The best part was it all came off like clockwork. Subaru brought WRC driver, Peter Solberg, over for the rally. He signed autographs and drove the opening stage Friday. He really fits into our rally crowd, I heard he was in the bar at 2am when my timing crew got in from the course. On Saturday they auctioned off a ride with him in the Charity rally cross. Two ladies got in a bidding war and finally one of them paid $ 1200 for the honor. Thanks Subaru for your h elp in raising funds for the local chari-ties who benefited. There was a tremen-dous increase in the number of spectators on the course and at the pare expose on Saturday. I have never seen so many Subarus all in one place! They were every-where. I think every Im-preza owner in Califor-nia came down for Rim. The CRS had a signifi-cant number of entries in the rally. Lots of new faces and new rally cars out for the first time and the competition were fierce. Leon Styles and John Dillon had a great week-end in the Plsek Audi. They were third and second overall in the ClubRallys. On Friday they finished behind Peter Workum and Alex Gelsomino, who were in a Subaru Im-preza. Only 20 seconds separated them on Fri-day night. Brian Scott and Ed Wahl also fin-ished both days in the Open class followed by Julius Vasari and Stuart Gater on Friday night. Bob Pendergrass and Jon Weigley had an "Oops" on Friday Dusty Times night, but finished Sat-urday in the Chevy Blazer. Maybe it is time for a rally car instead of a raLly truck. Tony Chavez and Eddie Cardenas had radiator woes on Friday and then had a good run on Saturday to finish eighth overall in the ClubRally 1.n the trusty Galant. The CRS Stock clans were dominated by Terry Stonecipher and co-driver Jeff Bruett in their Toyota pickup. They took the class both days. Mike and Linda Masano gave them a run Friday night and were close on them again on Saturday till the FX 18 got hung up on a berm. Gaba Parl, our Tombstone rally cross organizer, and navigator, Paul Nelson, were consistent top 20 finishers both days. It is fun to organize but it is really fun to rally-right Gabe?! Doug Whited and Pe-ter Soper finished Friday in the red VW GTI but had problems on Satur-day. Rally sprint roll-over expert, Loren Worthington and co-driver Todd Kinney kept their Nissan Sentra up-right and finished both days in the Stock class. You are officially no longer rally virgins! Don Shreyer and Ken Tooker had problems Friday but finished on Saturday in the RX7. CRS rally school student Amy BeberVanzo drove her Eclipse cleanly to the fin-ish both days. Scott and Mark Peterson debuted their new VW GTI and finished both days. They said they just don't know what to do with all this power after the Dodge Colt. Scott Harvey, one of the original CRS ral-lyists came back after many years away and had · a good run Friday night. Group 2/ 5 had a huge entry this year. Jay Streets in the Volvo 760, and Dave Coleman in a Nissan Sentra, were duking it out on Friday. Jay beat Dave by hun-dredths of a minute. They must have worn each other out because neither one finished on Saturday. Jim Gillespy and Mick Kirkpatrick who finished third on Friday by only three sec-onds, took second in the class on Saturday. Will-iam and Julie Yates fin-ished fourth in the MR2 on Friday and fifth on Saturday. They just keep coming. Bill Malik took first place in his Volvo on Saturday after a dis-appointing run on Fri-day. Richard Byford and Fran Olson finished in their signature yellow BMW Friday ni7ht.· However, they didn t re-start on Saturday. The VW fastback of Rod Koch just keeps on run-ning. He and Kengo Takahashi motored around both days having a great time. Ricky De La Cuesta has a new car for this year, a Toyota Starlet. Robert Shibeo brought out his new car, a Ply-mouth Laser and took the tail end reward on Friday. Jon West and Peter Morris battled Robert Shibeo in their Datsun 510 on Saturday for the tail end position and finally triumphed by five min-utes. Bruce and Pat Brown had their hands full in the GT class with new competitors B e n Medeiros and Sean McKenna. Bruce gra-c io usl y a I-lowed them to beat him but just wait till next time. Steph-en Verdier, C h r i s Hamilton and Scott and Tamara Clark were all non-fin-ishers in the class. A big thank you . goes out to all of the rally teams who ran the event and an even big-ger thank you goes out to over 300 volunteers who made it all hap-pen. Mike Gibeault and Craig McHugh and their crack scoring team, Paul Timmerman and his spectator con-trol crew, Steve Bender who kept everything moving at the hotel, Denise and Pat McMah?n who orga-nized all of the volun-teers and the many other people behind the scenes who made Rim of the World the best National event this year. Next up is a Tomb-stone Rally Cross and then Gorman Ridge Rally. C heck out our website at <> for more information. See you at the start line.
