Trail Notes ... CELEBRATION -We want to take this opportunity to wish a belated happy birthday to an old and dear friend, M. Scott McKenzie. Scott, the founder of "McKenzies" was a great boon to Jean and I during our racing days. His talent is great and he is a perfectionist as well. "Nuf said. Dick and Carol McCool threw a surprise birthday bash for Scott late in July. We weren't able to attend, due to the SNORE/MORE race in Barstow that evening, but we were there in spirit. Scott, may you have many, many more birthdays and be healthy as well. JC KC HILITES -Saw the new patriotic light covers that KC Hilites has come up with. Good looking as can be! Give them a call at 928-635-2607. GET WELL SOON -We just heard that Jim Price was banged up quite a bit while testing a Truggy. Evidently a rear trailing arm broke at speed resulting in many hours of surgery on Jim's shoulder and arm. Evidently the co-rider was unhurt. Hope you get well soon. RED FACE DEPARTMENT -We really goofed last month on the cover credits. The great cover shot of the Flippin boys was submitted by Eric Record of Go Desert Productions. Our sincere apologies to Eric. We promise not to do it again. 'T"uvs FOR TOTS -It's getting close to that time again, October 26 and J. 27, 2002 is when the Toys For Tots Poker Run will again run out in Barstow at the Slash X Cafe. There are two loops of 25 miles each, one for four wheel vehicles and one for motorcycles and ATV's. Runs are from 8am to noon on Saturday and Sunday. $20 entry fee and you get two runs for your twenty bucks. Best poker hand from each day win prizes. There is also a Saturday night dinner at the Slash X, an all you can eat BBQ dinner for $12 a head. All proceeds from the rally go to the Barstow charities. Go on out there and have some fun while you're helping others. For more information call the Slash X at 760-252-1197 or Mal & Connie Wessel at 760-252-3093. See ya there! MAINE FOREST RALLY -Running what could be described as a trouble free rally, Mark Lovell and Steve Turvey took the gold medal at Rumford, Maine. They drove their Subaru Impreza WRX to the checkers with a winning margin of more than two minutes. Lovell is looking to repeat his Driver Championship win again this year. Back to back wins certainly won't hinder him from achieving this goal. Partial results are: Open class, Lovell/Turvey took the win, second in Open was Tom McGeer/Mark Williams in a Subaru Impreza. Third in Open was David Higgins/Daniel Barritt, also in a Subaru Impreza. Tim O'Neil and Martin Headland took the Group N win in a Subaru Impreza, Ralph Kosmides and Jimmy Brandt took second, also in a Subaru Impreza and Jason Rivas and Ole Holter got the bronze medal they too in a Subaru Impreza. The Group 5 win went to Chris Havas and Dave Kean in their VW Golf, Don Jankowski and Ken Nowak were second in a Dodge Neon and John Daubenmier an~ S~an~ey ~osen we_re third in a Chevy S-10. Julien Pilon and Marie-Eve Pilon took the Production Grand Touring class, again, a Subaru Impreza, Greg Healey and John Macleod were second, in a guess what, another Subaru Impreza while Bob Henderson and John McArthur took third in yet another Subaru Impreza. Lauchliri O'Sullivan and Matt Chester took the laurels in Group 2 driving a Mitsubishi Lancer, second went to William Bacon and Peter Watt in their Acura Integra.and third came Matthew Johnson and Carl Fisher in a VW Golf. Taking the win in Production was Ted and Lise Mendham in a Nissan Sentra. Almost 100 entrants started the well attended rally and, as usual, most participants had a good run, win, lose or draw.

PIC OF THE MONTH -We got a note from Mel Larson regarding the Pie Of The Month for July, 2002, featuring Mel and Walt Lott. We said we weren't sure of the year the pie was taken, perhaps 1983, but we weren't sure. Mel said in his note that he thought it more like 1969 or 1970. Mel also wrote, "Please note my boots!" Looks like a once nice pair of loafers 'ti! the Mint silt got to them. Thanks for the note, Mel. MAG 7 -The Mag 7 race and pit team is offering motorcycle, quad and vehicle pits for the upcoming Best In The Desert Baja Mex 300 being held on September 20-23, 2002.

CRANDON RACEWAY -Just in over the transom, after 33 years as a racing facility, Cliff Flannery, track president announced that the Crandon track is being reconfigured. The .42 mile loop at the back of the track is not now in use, thus the track distance now is 1.327 miles. Now, as racers approach the back end of the track they will go into a 180 degree turn and then descend into a "Hell Hole" before climbing a hill and exiting at full speed over a natural jump before the first turn. The view from all areas of the track is vastly improved. Fans will be able to see the entire race track and never miss a pass, a bump or a jump. Flannery noted that for historic and record keeping pu rposes the track w ill continue to conduct Heavy Metal Challenge races such as the annual Forest Co u nty Potowatomi Governor's Cup race every June and the upcoming BorgWarner Shootout September 1, will be run on the full 1. 75 mile course.

Pages zagging down into the bottom, where the start/finish checkpoint and tim-ing and scoring awaited their arrival. Then they charged up and out of the bowl, and ran a gauntlet of pits, all within sight of the spectators. This area had a 35 mile per hour speed limit, but it didn't appear to be en-forced too carefully. The only nega-tive was that the wind blew the dust towards i:he spectators, but there wasn't a soul there who wanted the wind to quit. Tom Ridings, Greg Shapiro and Dean Cognito shared the driving in Ridings' Mirage, had a nearly trouble-free day and took the SCORE Lite win. Staging was an exercise in chaos. An area had been cleared for the rac-ers to gather in, but it was not quite big enough. The staging crew hustled around in 120 degree heat directing cars into orderly lines, then halting the incoming traffic so the racers could scoot across the road, up to the top of the dam, and down into the bottom of the bowl. In the con-fusion the Class 7 trucks and the Class 5 Baja Bugs were staged out of order, behind the 5-1600s. It was a pain for them to have that much more dust, but if that was the worst goof on a trying day, things actually went pretty well. The cars and trucks were all siarted single file, 20 seconds apart, and the Trophy Truck class was first off the line. There were ten of them, · but the # 11 truck, entered in Jerry Whelchel's name, was parked before getting out of the pit area, obviously never intended to go any further, but rather to be available as a chase ve-hide, since there was no chasing al-lowed at this event. At the end of the first lap they were led by Scott Stein-berger, whose Ford had been first off the line. He'd recorded the fast lap for the class, at 53:48, taking full ad-vantage of his dust free lap. But he had only two seconds on Glenn Greer, in his Dodge. and in third place, another 29 seconds back, it was Ed Herbst in the Ford, followed by Dan Smith in the Optima _Ford only a few seconds further back. Things were different at the end of the second lap, and by now they'd caught up with the slower classes and disabled cars, and passing was diffi-cult in the heavy dust. Smith led the lead at the end of that lap, with the Herbst truck in second place only a second later. They were stopping in the pit at the end of each lap for a quick once-over at least. Brian Col-lins had his Chevy in third, another nine seconds later. Darren Skilton was having trouble with the shifter on his Kia and found himself unable to get first and second gears. Jerry Whelchel, in Mark Post's Ford, was having flat tires. And Marty and Travis Coyne, who'd leased Robby Gordon's Ford for the race, had hit · a limited car in the dust, and punched a hole in their own radiator. They decided it was too hot out there to start changing radiators, so called it It wasn't easy; but Rob Taylor managed to finish all five laps in his 5-1600 car, to take the victory. He was the only survivor in the class. a day. They are scheduled to drive the truck at the Primm race, and possibly also in the 1000. -Smith fell out on the third lap and the Herbsts went into the lead. Greer was back up to second place, while Collins lost his rear end seals and lost ov~r · o laps with repairs. Stejnberger had two flats at once, luckily close to where the Coynes had come to a stop,.and they saved him by lending a tire and helping with the tire change. He was very grateful. At the end of the fourth lap th€ lead belonged to Post, who'd taken over for Whelchel. He had four min-utes on the Herbs ts who had power steering trouble. Steinberger was third. Greer dropped out, and Gus Vildosola had gone into a pile of rocks with his beautiful Ford and torn up (or ofO a corner. He was overcome by the heat and flown out by helicopter while his crew put the truck back together so they could drive it out. Skilton and the Collins truck were still moving along, between problems. Larry Ragland, who shared the driving with Collins, said they were "the fastest people out there" when they were moving,. He liked the course, said it was "Much better than I expected- it's a driver's course." Post and Whelchel took the win with another smooth lap, and they reported that flat tires had been their only problem, five of them. The Herbsts lost their rear drive, so dis-connected it and motored in on the front drive only for second place, and a little of their own money back. Stein-berger had a near miss on the last lap when he tried to go around three stuck trucks, tore up a wheel, which got jammed into his caliper. He couldn't get it apart and spent so much time working on it he "thought I'd die of heat exhaustion." But he finally made the repair and got back for third place. Collins and Ragland were fourth over an hour later, and Skilton was a disheartened fifth, thinking he needs to redesign his shift linkage. The Class 1 cars went off the line, and only eight of them made it all the September 2002 Dusty Times . . ·------------···-·----·--------------------

On the second lap Lobsam Yee lost the power steering on his Jimco, and after a two hour lap, called it a day. Everyone else was in pretty good shape, but Castro took over the lead as MacCachren and Marking lost about seven minutes somehow. Herbst was still second, and like his brothers; he stopped at the end of every lap for a quick once-over in the pit. Myers still ran third, only a minute and a half later, and now Chuck Hovey had his Jimco in fourth. Hovey's dad, Dean, one of the great crew chiefs of off road rac-ing, was up on a mountain with a good radio, keeping track of the class and telling Chuck to keep his cool and not press too hard. Herbst took over the lead on the third lap, and had a minute and 20 seconds on Castro and his co-driver, Dale Ebberts, who'd overheated their motor a bit and thought they'd messed up a valve. Marking and Mac-Cachren were third, and Hovey was fourth about a minute and a half behind them. Myers had hurt his back, so instead of driving all the way as planned, he got out and put George Erl, who'd already done three laps in the Myers Class 10 car, in for the final two laps. Hovey's dad told him to pick up the pace at the end of the third lap, so he did, and he went into the lead by the end of Lap 4. Castro and Ebberts were second, but not run-ning well, and Wayne Lugo and Craig Stewart in their V8 Chevy powered Stewart built car, were now third. They'd had three flats so far. Dan Myers, in the V6 ·Chevy powered Jimco, which was popping out of sec-ond and had no third gear, was now fourth and Herbst spent a lot of time in his pit with the crew banging and welding on a rear hub, but held on to fifth place. Hovey picked it up a little more on the last lap, in spite of the fact that he'd run out of drinking water and had the dry heaves. He scored the fast lap for the day for all classes, at 54:43 , and took the Class 1 win and the overall ltwas his fustwin in a SCORE event, and the crew was jubilant. Dad was still sitting up on that mountain. Lugo and Stewart moved into second place, and Dan Myers was third, fol-lowed in by Ebberts and Castro who were really running poorly by the time they took the checkered flag. In fifth it was Andrew Myers and Erl, and Herbst was sixth and the last in the class to-finish. The Class 10 cars, biggest group in the race, started next, with 16 entries. Dusty Times The first lap leader was Travis Brook-shire in the new Type N powered Jirnco, and he'd recorded the fast time for the class, at 58:39. He had not quite two minutes on George Erl in Steve Myers' Jirnco. In third itwas Clay Flippin, and Dave Sundquist and Rick Geiser ran fourth in their Geiser/ Jimco. Chris Harrold, who came close to not getting into the race when his ignition went out on Friday, ran fifth, in a Honda powered Jimco. His car seemed to be running hot, so he'd backed out of it a bit.

49TH ACROPOLIS RALLY Ford Focus Finishes First Churning up the rocks and gravel, Colin McRae and Nicky Grist took their Ford Focus to the overall win at the Acropolis rally Colin McRae equaled Carlos led all the way, the first half in the trouble.

One of the classic events of the championship, the Acropolis rally, comes at.the halfway point in the 2002 season, seventh round out of 14 in the World Rally Champion-ship, and third out of six in the Jun-ior Championship. Once again, this gravel event ran over rough and abrasive roads, this year they were acknowledged to be smoother than expect ed. With 89 entries, the Acropolis was the first event to ap-proach the new maximum of 90 cars, and, of these, 84 took the start. Peugeot debuted its 2002 ver-sion 206 World Rally Car, the main changes being in the air scoops in the hood, a revised rear wing and slight changes in the turbo and wastegate and this version also fea-tured stronger suspension. The en-gine was unchanged. Statistically, ' . ' ' this was a rally where the Ford driv-ers had to be favorites. Colin McRae had won here five times in the last seven years. He was up_ for a victory hat trick this time and drove his actual 2001 Cyprus winning car. Sainz, his teammate, had been on the podium here eight previous times. The other team with hope of a good placing was Subaru, with their first three car entry of the sea-son. Back again on a gravel World rally for the first time since last year's Acropolis were Citroen, whose Xsara WRC's now had the 2002 evolution engines, but the same chassis as in 2001. Citroen's main challenge was to master the logistical tasks of running in con-secutive events and they have delib-erately chosen to tackle the next four events in the series. From the Junior World Cham-pionship came news that Peugeot were now not represented at all. -B■ner Serie. Page 16 September 2002 ·; 2.5" 2.5" BumplBp €1!!41/ · Need coil springs? (oil King Shocks!

Janne Tuohino and Petri Vihavainen drove their Citroen Saxo to first in the Super 1600 category, 19"' overall. Two drivers had defected, Martin Stenshorne and Nicola Caldani, the third, David Doppelreiter withdrew with a mountain bike injury. Su-zuki prepared three new, stronger cars in gravel specification for this event and had invited 400 journal-ists from Japan to watch the event. MG installed a new aluminum wa-ter radiator on Gwyndef Evans ZR car. Paco Roig withdrew for finan-cial reasons. And, for the first time, the two Greek rivals Vovos and Papadimitriou (between them, na-tional champions five times in the last seven years) had competed against each other in the same type of car, Ford Focus WRCs. The new rule requiring that Shakedown tests take place on Thursdays led to a very long work-ing day before the event. Acropolis 2002 was the 15th anniversary of the use of deflation proof mousse inserts, pioneered originally by Dusty Times Michelin, and the conditions on this event were such that this com-modity would be in huge demand. The roads seemed to be smoother than before. Gronholm liked it a bit smoother while Sainz thought it was a shame that they had graded the roads. "Rallies should keep their character." After Burns' troubles with high in-car temperatures in Cyprus, Peugeot introduced special air inlet lines into the cockpit of Burns car and were able to con-nect directly with his helmet. Sounds like Parker Pumper could be used with great effect here. With each stage averaging 18 minutes in length, consistent performance from start to finish of stages was as vital for the crew as the tires! Pre rally there were few dramas, except for Delecour who had two road collisions during recce.

The Stewards is-sued a reprimand. At shakedown, a fresh face was at top of the times, the third Ford driver, Markko Martin. "It is great knowing that I can beat Carlos and Colin." Peu-geot had done all their shakedown work the day before and carried out only the single, mandatory run up the stage before returning to base. Leg 1 - Six stages, gravel, 136 kms. The action began at eight Fri-day morning and immediately came the discussion about running or-der. Fastest time was made by Markko Martin, running 10th on the road, third was Harry Rovan-pera in eighth and then Colin McRae at seventh,. telling a tale, ex-cept that second best was Gron-holm in the new Peugeot who was first on the road in the opening stage. Generally the later runners faired best. Early in trouble was Petter Solberg, he spun and stalled the Subaru's engine, and it took nearly all the car's battery reserves to get the engine to fire. Many had brake problems. Colin McRae said his was continuous, Makinen's car was set with too much brake pres-sure to the rear and he lost confi-dence on some of the long down-hill runs. Sebastian Loeb had air in his brake lines and had to bleed the brakes between service. Martin an-nounced he had flats on the first two stages, and he was leading the event! Radstrom was going well in the second Xsara, making best time on Stage 2, Citroen's first World Rally scratch time with the WRC on gravel. Hyundai were running 16th and 17th on the road. After Stages 2 and 4, Armin Schwarz was second and after Stage 3 it was Freddy Loix. Kankkunen had some obscure electrical problem, making it appear the boost pressure was bad. Kenneth Eriksson, Skoda, lost 80 seconds being late leaving ser-vice repairing his differential. Then teammate Gardemeister had front differential troubles. Bums had a central cliff prob-lem and had the unit changed. In the middle section of the event Martin held on to his lead while Gronholm spun, stalled, and had to drive off th road, through a field and back on the road again to carry on in the correct direction. Makinen's throttle stuck and he had to use the brakes to slow down the engine and Solberg damaged his suspension and lost his brakes. In the private entries Armin Kremer had a lucky escape when his Ford ended up a few hundred yards from the road on Stage 4, after jumping a wall and landing hard on the nose. Gabriel Pozzo's Skoda lost three · minutes with a broken ball joint. Markko Martin's domination continued, Fords were 1-3 and 5. He had another flat on Stage 5 and a near miss when some rocks caused him to drive for a bit on two wheels, and then on the sixth stage, the two right hand wheels broke. Makinen retired on Stage 6, he lost his brakes and the power steering and tore a wheel off the car. Panizzi had a shock fail, Solberg had rear brake trouble, which caused him to spin and Loeb still struggled on with brake problems. Delecour had power steering troubles, Gardemeis-ter said he felt ill and said his Skoda was unstable in the rear. Hyundai found Kankkunen's troubles but didn't have to.fix it. Radstrom chose the wrong tire type, lost time and fell from sixth to 10th. Continued on page 18 ® The Suspension Company. September 2002 Page 17

McRae moves to within seven points of Drivers Champion-ship leader Marcus Granholm who retired on the first section and Ford is now 14 points be-hind Peugeot~ Karamjit Singh was the only finisher of the five entries in the Production Car category and moves in front of Ramon Ferreyros, who did not enter this event. The second half of the 2002 championship started in Kenya with the 50th anniversary Sa-fari Rally. The event is now a highly condensed version of the former Round Kenya open road event, centered at a single service park and run entirely in daylight. At 2,433 kms, it is the longest event in the cham-pionship and by climbing over 10,000 feet, it is the highest. As usual, special rules applied to this event, including a four day reconnaissance and 1nuch longer high speed sections. In-dividual competitive sections were up to twice as long, the total competitive length three times greater and the technical rules had special exceptions ap-plicable only here. Once again, competitive road sections were open to other users but this time the open roads were theo-retically limited for half the competitive distance. This event is considered by all the teams to be the final "tough gravel" rally of the season. Only 3 2 kms of the high speed sec-tions was completely new, but a considerable amount of the route had not been -used in re-cent years and was new to most competitors. New this year was the single Service Park, near the (fortu-nately inactive) volcano north-west of Nairobi, which meant for the first time the entire rally route was run in the southern hemisphere. The rally shake-down was held after the ceremo-nial start of the event. There were only four individual high speed sections. Each was to be used three times, twice in one direction and once in the other. This was the first time that all competitive sections had been run in both directions on a gravel world rally. This was not the event for innovative engineering, rather maximum durability, even at the expense of performance. It is obvious that the roads will be very damaging after they are run multiple times. Technical innovations were virtually absent. Subaru re-moved their roof scoops, the airflow brought sand and dust into the cockpit. Mitsubishi's unhappy season continued when one of their vehicles was involved in a fatal accident while being driven up to the pre-event test. Teams were cu-rious whether it would be nec-essary to fit large fuel tanks and some did, Mitsubishi, Peugeot and Skoda. This was the new Citroen tea1n's first event out-side Europe and this was Hyundai's first Safari with a WRC. Tires, like cars, face greater stresses on the Safari than elsewhere because of higher sustained speeds, higher sur-face temperatures, heavier weight of cars, longer high speed sections and a much more damaging course. Both Michelin and Pirelli used wider tires here than anywhere else. These provide better high speed absorption of im-pacts from rocks, reducing the risk of puncture. Miche-lin had mousse inserts avail-able but Pirelli had prepared tires with a stronger sidewall and wasn't planning to use mousse at all to save build-up C1ntinu1d on page 26 ------, Harri Rovanpera and Risto Pietilainen were second to finish the Safari Rally in their Peugeot 206, seen here on hard pack and at speed.

VORRA FALLON 250 Denton Drives To The overall By Forest Creasy Photos: Steve Brosz There seems to be no stopping Todd Denton, he took his second straight overall win, set fast lap and anxiously awaiting the next race. Ding. Ding. It's Round 2 in the VORRA desert series. Like an Ameri-can Pie skit, Todd Denton and Sam Berri went faster the second time and once again went 1-2 in the Fallon 250 on a nice weekend in July. In between the ten minute rainstorms and rain-bows the weather gods were nice as the racing started early Saturday with a slight breeze. It was to be necessary as silt beds and high speed roads caused for a dusty environment. Sam Berri just loves to race, he was 1st in Class 1 o and 2"' in Class 1 at the VORRA Fallon 250. Todd Denton got thing started quickly as he took the lead off the drag strip with two cars leaving every minute with the Christmas Tree. Cars raced on die drag strip an utilized the sand pit at the end starting four 55 mile laps. Denton raced around for an early lead over Berri. Richard and Ryan Lesher once again raced in Class 1 and 10 while having the race schedule of a NASCAR team, if there is a race they are there. Lesher followed in nine min-utes behind the leader. Dennis Boyle was the fourth entry, up from South-ern California, and wiped out a cor-ner of his car and managed just the first lap before heading south. Denton spun the fast lap of the day on Number 2 with a 57.52, took a drink, grabbed some gas, changed his Racer X shirt and blistered the next two laps finishing the race in just under four hours. Denton grabbed his sec-ond straight overall finish and looks to rob the penny bank at the Lovelock race. Berri kept the laps consistent run-ning into some dust and lap traffic, but cruised in about 20 minutes later to take his second consecutive second overall. Lesher ran off laps of 1:07, 1:07, 1:05, and 1:06 to take the third spot once again ten minutes off of Berri's dust. Class 10 was again the class to watch. Berri started early and didn't have much dust to contend with as his spun the-fast lap for the class on Number 1 of 1:01:07. Berri didn't have it quite that easy as John Tavis in his nice two seat Lothringer followed in just a minute behind. Tony McLaren was in next in his single seat Toyota powered machine about 90 seconds behind Tavis. Terrie Tavis missed her first desert race with VORRA , bur her kind words to her husband John pushed the right but-tons as he led going into the third lap with a three minute lead on Berri. Lesher just kept the pressure on and now moved into third, with McLaren now in fourth 12 minutes in arrears. Kenny Ott led the Semi-Pro Class most of the race, was slowed by flats near the John Dallaire made his maiden voyage into VORRA a memorable one, he led Going into the white flag lap Berri made up that three minutes and it was now a fight to the finish with Tavis. Lesher stayed in third, with McLaren now about 20 minutes back. Eric Rob-inson, racing an Elrod ride had a large second lap, but was on the road again and making up some time running in fifth. As you already know Berri's car was the first one spotted on the road and went on to victory once again in 10 and rumor has it he will have some help in Lovelock as he will bring out his end but he still managed to take the class win. Class 8 all the way and took home all the marbles. Continued on page 32 Page 30 September 2002 Dusty Times

As a rear flat, broken front arm, and a bent seat put him down more than an hour. Steiger cruised around with Creasy's girlfriend, Marlena Lllly, in Steiger's ride. Creasy got started again and then broke an axle, bent because of the roll-over, and ended his day after Lap l. Steiger led into Lap 1, broke in the same spot that Creasy did when his motor lost power and couldn't make it up the silt hill.

There were some brutal looking race cars on display, Riviera Racing's being only one of them. Rob MacCachren came down to Ontario for the LeDuc Swap Meet and, judging by his grin, was having a great day. Bob Land was there, he had lots of goodies for sale including dump cans, tires and 'fiberglass body parts. Admittedly, the prospect of at-tending a swap meet does not usually cause one's pulse to race. However, an off road swap meet, held at the California Super Speedway and put on by racing icon Curt LeDuc, now that's a different story. As soon as folks arrived at the admission gate, they could see the June 30, 2002 event was special. That's because LeDuc himself was there to personally greet everyone. And he did so from Sann-day evening's opening until the close on Sunday night. And when he wasn't rolling out the proverbial wel-come mat, Le Due was busy seeing to the needs of the vendors. There was ample opportunities for anyone looking to acquire racing parts and equipment at discounted prices. From old, used Jeep parts to the very latest, top of the line prod-ucts, it was all available. Many were fresh off of racing vehicles and pre-runners. Some even were the race ve-hicles! Everything, or so it seemed, could be had for a price. But con-spicuously absent were the types of "hard sells" and sales pitches found at events geared toward the almighty dollar. That's right. This was clearly different. There was a distinctively relaxed atmosphere, rich in both spirit and camaraderie. As a matter of fact, the prevalent attitude seemed to be more about giving than receiv-ing. For example, one of the busiest booths was the one where donations were being accepted oil behalf of C.O.R.V.A. (California Off Road Vehicle Association) and C.O.R.D.R. (Coalition of Off Road Desert Rac-ers). To the delight of fans and racers alike, several of off road's biggest stars were in attendance. Foremost among that group was the ever-popular Rob MacCachren, winner of numerous desert and short course champion-ships and Best in the Desert Trophy True}< Champ Darnen Jeffries. Rising young star Jimmy O'Neal also made the scene, peddling everything from motorcycle parts (O'Neal Racing Products) to items off his Trophy Truck. Class 8 drivers Chris Wilson and Ramsey Wardini were selling ex-tra parts from the "Stone Stock" Truck they recently purchased from Dave Sykes. Even Rory Ward, all the way from Bullhead City, Arizona, was there with his hot selling "Racers Only" apparel. The growing popularity of racing videos was alsq in evidence, with vendor s such as Klaus Rasch (The Desert People) and Tony Campbell (Y-Not Productions) on hand. In a manner reminiscent of his driving style, things went smoothly at LeDuc's swap meet. C learly, the Skyjacket sponsored superstar knows the importance of a strong support-ing cast. A perfect example was Le Due's enlisting of the assistance of C.J. Stewart, who acted as emcee for the event. Stewart did a magnificent job of raising awareness of the major issues being faced by members of the off road racing community. She also Dusty Times did a superb job of raising money for credit are Jim Arbogast, Congressman C.O.R.

SNORE/MORE MIDNIGHT SPECIAL Fraley/Maccachren Take The overall By John Calvin Photos: Trackside Photo They did it again, Rob MacCachren and Bruce Fraley teamed up to take the 1600 win as well as the overall at the SNORE/ MORE contest July in beautiful downtown Bar-stow is always drop dead hot, the macadam sizzles and the dirt with rocks racing surface is just a few de-grees below liquefaction. But, and isn't there always a but? This year the weather gods smiled on the rac-ers, their families and crews and al-though the daylight hours were hot, they weren't drop deal fall over hot. In fact, while the sun was on the way down in the west the temperature was going right down with it and we saw many folks in the wee hours of race night wearing jackets to ward off the cool breeze that was blow-ing. In a nutshell, the weather was fine, a nice breeze to cool off the participants and their crews and it also kept the dust off the course for most of the night. · The turnout of cars was not up to what was expected but the racing was good, nobody got hurt and even those who dnf d said they love the Barstow course and would race there again any time. Class 10 was first to leave the start and Jim Anderson was the leader as they came by on their run of six laps. Michael Gaughan Jr. was a mere 32 seconds behind the leader, then came Dan Bentley, another three minutes back followed by Richard Lesher who was having a slight igni-tion problem. Tyler Stone failed to complete his first lap and he wasn't alone as Bill Dicton didn't make his first lap either. Lap 2 saw some changes as Dick Lesher moved into the Class 10 lead. Dan Bentley swept into the second spot, Jim Anderson dropped to third and Mike Gaugh-an dropped to fourth after fighting with an alternator belt. As Lap 3 came to an end, it was still Lesher in the lead by a couple of minutes over Jim Anderson. Bentleywas running third and Gaughan was fourth. Lap 4 saw some driver changes as Ryan Lesher, son of Richard took over the helm and he picked up the pace a bit and held the lead. Bob Mathews got in for Bentley and he was running in the second spot. J.C. Dean was in for Gaughan and they were running in the third spot. Then Jim Anderson had major troubles and they retired from the fray. The fifth lap still saw Ryan Lesher in the lead, Mathews still holding second and J.C. Dean in third. When the checkered flag flew it was Ryan Lesher taking the win, J.C. Dean came along for the second spot and the Bentley/Mathews combo disap-peared from the scoring charts. The Leshers, father and son, had no other problems after their first lap and the Gaughan/Dean car did have a few .flats to contend with. So, only two of the Class 10 cars saw the finish, the rest retired to their trail-ers to lick their wounds. There were 20 1600 cars ready for a good fight and there was quite a bit of scrapping before the night was over. Bryan Freeman started last in class but when they started to come around at the end of Lap 1 Bryan was in the lead. Rob Mac-Cachren was flying also and he came to the finish line 41 seconds behind the leader. Thirteen seconds later, in third spot was Randy Jones, driv-ing for Brad Inch w_ho was a bit un-der the weather and had assigned himself to pitting chores for the evening. Richard Boyer was running fourth, Brad Fletcher was in fifth, Paul Keller was running sixth, Don Johnson was seventh, Cody Freeman was eighth, Tom Craig held the ninth spot, Lorenzo Rodriguez was in tenth and Garit Wallace was the· 11th 1600 across the line. Bob Wied-erhold was the only 1600 not to complete his first lap. The second lap in 1600 saw the cars still running quite close and as they came around and this time MacCachten was in the lead, but not by much. Second was Bryaa Free-man and Randy Jones was right there in third. A few more minutes behind was Paul Keller, then Rich- · ard Boyer in fifth. In sixth place it was Tom Craig, seventh was Lorenzo Rodriguez, Cody Freeman was just seconds away in eighth, Day Gang, sporting her new short, easy to man-Richard and Ryan Lesher, father and son took the Class title at Barstow, they ran trouble free and were fourth overall. Randy Jones subbed for Brad Inch and he drove up a storm, second in 1600 and a terrific second overall as well. age hairdo was ninth and the tenth spot was held by Kevin Walsh. The third lap ended with Mac-Cachren holding the lead and open-ing up a bit on time with his pursu-ers. Next around was Randy Jones, even though he rolled the car some-where out there he was hardly slowed by the event. In third it was Paul Keller, fourth was Tom Craig, he _had moved up a few spots from the last lap, then it was Bryan Free-man who suffered through a bro-ken throttle cable which cost him many minutes, but he was rollin' again. Richard Boyer was sixth, down one from the previous lap, Cody Freeman was seventh, up a spot, Day Gang had moved into eighth, Lorenzo Rodriguez had dropped from seventh to ninth and the tenth place car was Kevin Walsh. Lost on that lap were the cars of Matt Sherard, Corey Goin and Cortney Whipple. The end of the fourth lap still had MacCachren in the lead, Randy Jones was still running second, Matt Codiamat had replaced Paul Keller and was still third, Bryan Freeman had moved up into fourth and Day Gang had moved into the fifth spot. Cody Freeman moved to sixth, Ro-driguez had come back from ninth place to a more respectable seventh, Richard Boyer was eighth, Andy Rusich had leaped into the ninth spot and Garit Wallace was the tenth place runner. On the fourth lap we lost Tom Craig and Kevin Walsh. Lap 5, getting near the end, it's the witching hour and the pit crews are doing their best to change tires, add fuel and keep their drivers com-fortable. MacCachren came in, still in the lead and handed over to Bruce Fraley. This, in spite of two flats on the lap. Randy Jones was still in sec-ond although he had a much slower lap than normal. Bryan Freeman had picked up his pace, was closing on second but still remained in the third spot. In fourth it was still Day Gang but she was being pressed very hard by Matt Codiamat in fifth. Ro-driguez gained another place, up to sixth, Kenny Freeman, who was in for youngest son Cody was seventh, Andy Rusich moved into the eighth spot, Garit Wallace moved up an-other notch into ninth and Jeff Carr finally hit the top ten. On the sixth and final lap, most of them made a mad dash for the finish line, but not a heck of a lot changed. Bruce Fraley came in for the Class 1600 win and the overall as well, his lap being just about five minutes longer than MacCachren's. It was a 13 minute wait until Randy Jones arrived, but he had a good second place and did survive a roll-over earlier on. Bryan Freeman took the last spot on the podium, he was less than three minutes out of the second spot and a bit disappointed at the lost time with the throttle cable. Next came Day Gang, a nice fourth place (not as far as she's con-cerned) and Day had a trouble free race, kept the tires always pointed towards the ground and said she had a great time. Matt Codiamat came in for fifth, he had a trouble free run except for his roof blowing John Phegley and Jerry Stewart lost the brakes, a driveshaft, so what's new?

Unfortunately for Heath Mitchell, they only got in their two good laps of the required four, they disap-peared from the race, cause un-known. Next up was the Class 8 contin-gent, they had five laps to make a race and they had a remarkable 80% finishing rate. Dwaine Walters had the lead when the cars started to come to the finish line, Tom Vanderploeg was second across the line, Jerry Burke was third to hit the finish line, some two minutes and change in arrears.

BONNEVILLE OFF ROAD RACING ENTERPRISES Fourteenth Annual Jackpat2DD By Mike Chamberlain Photos: Jeff Straw Seen through the dust, Scott Smith and Gary Brennan were first overall at the BORE Jackpot as well as the 1600 champs. FM radio, The Window Welder and NAPA Auto Parts. A special sponsorship thanks goes out to BFGoodrich, with their tire dona-tions. As is the norm for some of our race teams, the Colorado team of Mike Sims and crew were on the scene early and started setting up the track. Others to aide in this task were the teams of Roger and Ty Bowers, Mike and BD, Boog Cain and Mike Moose. If I missed any-one, you need to learn to yell louder or do somethin~ comical like I usu-ally do. The track markings were started on Thursday, completed on Friday and a small portion re-ac-complished Saturday prior to the race. A small rain squalor came through Friday night and required a check of the track prior to the start on Saturday. Friday, as with all previous years, technical inspec-tion was held in the middle of town and after all inspections were com-pleted the day ended with the draw-ing of starting positions and a cruise through main street for all the locals to view. The 2002 Jackpot 200 held in Nevada's North East corner on July 6 was the best ever with perfect weather, wonderful 4th ofJuly fire-works and celebration put on by the town of Jackpot on the evening of 4 July. The annual running of this race was welcomed with open arms by the town of Jackpot Ne-vada with sponsors like Cactus Pete's resort and casino, Horseshu Hotel and Casino, Barton's 93 Casino and the Four Jacks.

Monte Tibbits and Jason Bettelyoun let no grass grow. under them, they rocketed to the Class B win and second overall as well. This year's race was dominated by the 1/2-1600 single seater of Team Smith. Scott Smith and Gary Brennan set a blistering pace from the on-set and after the race was said and done the closest competi-tor was over 15 minutes back. Team Smith picked up the fastest lap, fastest overall and the Class 1/ 2-1600 top spot. After the race Scott was quick to thank all his team members and let them know that without their hard work and the overall team-man-ship, Team Smith wouldn't be at the top. This year the class starting posi-tions were slightly changed due to the last race in May at Wendover when the Class 8 boys took the overall win. President Les Wolfe put the Class 8 trucks up front for their efforts in taking overall top honors at the last race. The Class S's took off the line first after a slight delay for track marking repairs from the previous night's rain. The team of Jim Wright and David Sams took the opening green flag for the 2002 Jackpot 200. Unfortunately, that's all they would see. They never com-pleted the first lap due to unknown problems. Next to test their skills on this notoriously rough course was Team Sims from Colorado in their 1970 Chevy truck sponsored by the 4 Wheelers, Warehouse Fur-niture, Glenwood NAPA Auto, Racing Fork Glass and Extreme Auto Art. After Lap 1 Mike and co-drivers Bruce Cochran and Joe Sims had their Chevy in second place only seven seconds from the top dog of Monte Tibbits Ford. Lap 2 still had Team Sims in second only 11 seconds out. On the third lap Mike dropped to third having to change a flat tire and making re-pairs to a broken drive shaft. Dur-ing Lap 5 Mike experienced a bro-ken left rear trailing arm ending the day for Team Sims. Mike would end the day with a third place fin-ish. Mike and Carrey wished to thank their family members Bill, Martha, Joe, Barb, Roger and friends that have supported Team Sims from day one. Next to the line was the team of Monte Tibbits and Jason Betteyoun in their 1979 Ford F-150, Chevy powered Class 8 truck sp·onsored by Inland Truck parts,. Ghost Bear Trucking and Pine Ridge Auto. Monte had first place after Lap 1 by only seven sec-onds and after Lap 2 had only in-creased that lead to 11 seconds over Mike Sims. Mike wasn't giving Monte any breathing room. By Lap 3 however, Monte had increased his lead to 30 minutes and never looked back from then on.

The Sportsman Class win went to Travis Schrenk, seen here at speed in his Jeep on his, way to victory.

The team of Mike Hickey and Bo Brunyer looked good for quite a while but they were unable to .<;pmplete their final lap. Class 8 vehicle to complete the six laps on chis year's course. Mike Hickey and Bo Brunyer were next to the line. Through Laps 1 and 2 Mike and Bo were in fourth place and on Lap 3 slid into second when Mike Sims and Greg Becker experi-enced troubles. Mike and Bo would keep the second position through-out the rest of the race until the final lap when they had mechani-cal troubles sidelining them. They did, however, pull a second place for their efforts and on the Jack-pot course that's a great fear. The final Class 8 to test their skills was the team of Greg Becker, James Marrow and Rick Harrah in their Ford F-150 sponsored by Becker and Harrah. They were able to complete the first two laps holding onto the third spot but fell to me-chanical troubles some time dur-ing the third lap and were done for the day. They ended the day with a fourth place finish. The 1/2-1600 class Buggies were next to the line. Rookie Mike Cham-berlain pulled the pole for B&M Off Road Racing in their newly ac-quired single seater sponsored by Signworks of Layton Utah. Mike pulled out like a rabbit in a dog race. By Mile 10 of Lap 1 Mike had to pull over to locate a lost fresh air breather hose and by Mile 25 had lost it in the wash and flipped . the buggy. Mike fell to last place on Lap 1 but was determined to press on. Lap 2 had the exhaust system coming apart and on Lap 3 com-pletely lost the exhaust and the en-gine finally gave up the ghost end-ing the day for Team B&M. Mike wanted to thank his brother Cody, crew chief Kwazi and Jeff for their hard work in prepping the buggy for the race. Learning a new buggy is fun but sure kicks the pride area of the pants. Next to the line was Team Smith who I mentioned ear-lier. Scott and varry Brennan were out to prove they belong at the top and they did just that by taking the fastest lap of the race, the overall top honors and the Class 1/2-1600 win. Scott, this would have been a perfect spot to put all your spon-sors and team members but you didn't return your profile sheet (just ribbing). Team Smith ran six flawless laps and a huge congratu-lations goes out to Smith, Gary and the entire Team Smith. Third to go was Ty Bowers in his single seat 1600 sponsored by Clearfield Auto of Clearfield Utah. Ty ran the first three laps in a fantastic manner. He held the second spot all three laps.

C.D.R.E. Pit Report By Wayne Nosala CORE was present at the Snore/ More night race in Barstow on July 27, 2002 . High winds blew the entire race, which was good for the racers but made time in the pits tough. The killer heat we were expecting wasn't there. Jackets were needed later in the evening. All CORE pits had great lighting; generators ran late into the night lighting up the race course. Davy Girder brought out his 1600 car for this race. Being the nice guy that he is, he let his cousins Tim and Tom Craig have the car. They were running in fourth place.

Cody Freeman drove most of the race in his single seat 1600 car. Kenny Freeman then took over driving duties. All were going well until the last lap when the motor let go. Kenny was stuck in a remote place until the wee hours in the morning before his crew could tow him out. Brad Inch/ Randy Jones. This proved to be a good combo, Brad's car with Randy driving. Randy drove the entire race while Brad ran the CORE Main Pit. Randy ran hard and trouble free until Lap 3 when he found a nasty hole by Hodge Road. He rolled the car breaking the shock tower and doing some minor frame damage. The broken front shock tower wasn't even noticed until the end of the race. Randy collected himself and away he went. On his last lap, Randy over the radio, thanks each pit for their help. He finished second overall. Most of the pits for this race reported that this was one of the easiest races to work at, wind was the only problem. CORE had ample pits and people for the effort. Dave West also roved for us at the first Stoddard Wells Road crossing. MAIN PIT: Brad Inch, John Blakenship, Scott & Scotty Haisman, along with Tom Foudy and his family ran the Main Pit. Keeping up on times and positions was the main duty PIT A: The father/daughter team of Gary and Kara Hall ran this pit alone. They changed a tire on Brad's car but otherwise had a quiet evening. Kara was nominated for our first CORE Member Profile located near the end of this column. PIT B: Jim Wagner, Ansley Donaldson, Tom Craig Sr. and family, along with myself were at this pit located at the inner Hodge Road crossing. We had one 5-1600 car ask for directions, but other than that, we ran the radio and watched the action. PIT C: Davy Girder and crew manned this pit. Davy kept his cool when he talked-a lost Randy Jones back onto the course. From his location, Davy could see Randy's lights, with his help, Randy got back on course. PIT D: This pit was the Jorgensen famil-y; affair. Tom, Shirley, and their two kids enjoyed the fact they were on the clear side of the course. Wind blew dirt towards the other side and away from their pit. Along with race action they also watched other J2its trying to keep their stuff from blowing away. PIT E: Pit "Easy" lived up to its name. Ted Braxhoofden and Sam Davis enjoyed being in an area with big whoops. They got to watch the cars get some big air. On Lap 5, Randy came in needing a power steering belt changed; Ted and Sam changed it in 60 seconds flat and off Randy went. On the last lap Randy did a stop and go so they· could make sure all the plug wires were still in place. The car was running a bit rough but made it to the finish in one piece. Ted and Sam made a great team out there. CORE MEMBER PROFILE: KARA HALL I thought it would be a good idea to inform readers about what kind of people are members of CORE.

Kara Hall, 1 7, currently attends Verdugo High School in Southern California. As a member of CORE for three years, she rarely misses a monthly meeting. Kara took it upon herself to assemble a scrapbook of all of the CORE events. She has spent hours working a CORE booth in contingency promoting the club. Kara also has the skills of a much older person. When not in school, she spends her free time working on Brad Inch's 1600 car and his two seat pre-runner buggy. Kara doesn't sit by the sidelines waiting for a ride; she earns it by tearing apart the race car after a race. Kara told me that "My job is to take the car apart after a race." She also has learned to put what she takes apart, back together again. Recently she helped on a complete break and bearing project. She also has pit skills that were put to the test at the past race in Barstow. She worked the jack while her father, Gary, took off the lug nuts with the impact wrench. After she jacked up the car, she went to get the tire, some "helpful" guys from a neighboring pit thought she neeeled assistance. They took the tire from her and tried to mount the tire on backwards. Kara knows which way a tire mounts. When you see Kara in a CORE pit she may be keeping race times or working on a car and she knows what she's doing. We value Kara as a great asset to CORE and feel she deserves mention.

to the Score Primm race the weekend of September 14-15, maybe a trip to Barstow would be a good idea for something to do. This is the weekend before the Pro 1600 shootout. CGRE has a weekend of pre-running, BBQ's and family fun planned for those who attend. If you need more information on this event or any other CORE information, contact me, Wayne Nosala at (818) 703-1971 or e-mail me at CORE meets the first Tuesday of every month at Mulligan's in Valencia.

Oh just hit the*#~ thing!" sponsorship throughout the year. for more information and a full schedule for all of our events. II From The Director Just returned from the Pike's Peak Hillclimb and the CRS was well represented. Eight of our members participated and all made it to the top. The weather was perfect for the practice day and the race day. No snow or rain - those familiar with the Peak know you can have either on any given day. Lauchlin O'Sullivan was third in the Open class in his Mitsubishi. He had a great run up the hill. Wolfgang Hoeck and Julie Lin were first in the Group N by just a couple of seconds. Lonnie Peterson got to the top in his very bright green Subaru. Who picked your car color, Lon? George Pisek finished in ()pen as well, in his new Mitsubishi. He Ole Holter had a great ride with Tim O'Neil and finished second in Group N. Alex Gelsom(no and Peter Workum conquered·the hill in their Subaru in the Open class. Ramana Lagemann had the "Rogaine Hair Raising" inoment for the week ~hen he hung :the front wheels of his Subaru off the edge of the mountain. It was really spectacular because we all could see the undercarriage fr:om the practice day pit area. . This is an experience riot to be missed. The format is different than a rally with practice but everyone had a great time. See you next year! September is a busy month for the CRS. We have rally school on September 14th and a rally cross the following day in Ridgecrest, CA. Contact Mike and Paula Gibeault- for more inform·ation -(760) 375-8704. The Treeline rally will be held on September 20th and West Covina, CA. This will be a two day event for the first time. Friday night is new and promises to be-lots of fun. Saturday is the traditional tight and twisty roads of the Angeles Forest out of Azusa Can,yon. Contact Pete Morris for more information (323) 667-2614 or rallytaff®earthlink .net · Subaru will be having its Ride and Slide driv!!lg f,(.:hOC)! for Su\Jor..; c~n~ on September 29th.
