SCORE/LAUGHLIN -The SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge has been going -on for nine years. An agreement signed by the sponsors of the event and SCORE International has guaranteed at least three more years of exciting off road action near the banks of the Colorado River. The Laughlin Visitors Bureau, a division of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, Las Vegas Events and the Laughlin Tourism Committee have entered into an agreement with SCORE to hold the annual event in Laughlin through 2006. "SCORE International is excited to have a three year contract for this one-of-a-kind-event", said SCORE President Sal Fish. "The agreement guarantees the future of the most spectator friendly event in the SCORE Racing series and desert racing as a whole", he said. "We are pleased to start our six race 2004 SCORE Desert Series in Laughlfn and are especially looking forward to help commemorate a decade of excellence in the Laughlin Desert." FINAL FLAG -We were truly saddened to hear of the passing of Vic Hickey, one of the early off road racing pioneers. Vic passed away on June 13d, at the age of 84, apparently of natural causes. Vic was a Los Angeles native and grew up in the highly formative years of the hot rod era. Vic built Novi Indy cars, but it was in the off road world where he really made his mark. He built the innovative Corvair powered "Trailblazer" and that led to a term at General Motors where he designed the suspension of the Lunar Rover. Vic built the famous Baja Boot, a four wheel drive vehicle and the Boot won the first Baja 500 with Bud Ekins at the helm and Vic in the co-drivers chair. The Boot was later owned and raced by Steve McQueen. Hicky's Oldsmobile Banshee, a mid engined Cutlass ran in many off road races, piloted by James Garner and Mickey Thompson. Our heartfelt condolences to Vic's family. MORE SCORE -The dates for the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 are: November 20 through November 23, 2003. For some reason we have been showing improper dates in the Happenings section of Dusty -Times. Be sure to adjust your calendar to the new dates! PROTRUCK UPDATE -In a release from Protruck dated July 17, 2003, it is stated: The Phoenix event, scheduled for October 11-12, 2003 has been taken off the Protruck race schedule for 2003 and replaced with the La Paz race in September, whi<;h will be televised. MERE PROTRUCK -Some Pro truck deslrt racing and closed course events II be shown on the Outdoor Life Network (OLN). The race at ughlin will air on September 4,5 and 8. The Terrible's Town 250 airs on September 15. The Baja 500 will be shown on September 11 and 12. The Best In The Desert race will air on September 1, 18 and 19. The Protruck Guam race will air on September 22,25 and 26. Check you local listings on those dates fot air times. The programs also include driver interviews and technical features. SCCA PRoRALLY -MAINE FOREST RALLY -The sixth event in the 2003 nine event schedule cakes place in Rumford, Maine on August l" and 2nd.

Hopefully a full report will be seen in Dusty Times. BEST IN THE DESERT BAJA MEX 300 -By the time you read chis the Baja Mex race will be in the history books. BITD announced in July that a new class will be featured in the race, namely the Safari Pre-Runner Class, open to all pre-runners! The race runs on August 23'd, starting in beautiful Downtown .J::nsenada and the checkers fly at the Estero Bea,ch Resort. There are six designated pits along the course.

DAKAR RALLY -The 26d, Dak·ar Rallye will, for the first time since its inc~ption in 1977 will have a three rider team of American racers. Backed by KTM Sportsmoi:orcycle USA and Red Bull, the team will consist of two veteran riders, Larry Roesseler and Paul Krause, ·who, between them have more than 60 years of off road racing experience. Team member number three has yet to be chosen. KTM has decided to' conduct an unprecedented nationwide search for the third rider. The rider will be selected based on their off road racing experience, capability to make good decisions despite enormous fatigue, adaptability to foreign circumstances and ability to project a ,JOsitive image for America and the team. Stay tuned. UMHO TIRE SUPPORT TRUCK - Kuh mo Tire has launched a new motorsport upport truck and trailer and a trio of Mini Coope-rs. The truck will rovide trackside support at Sports Car Club of America national events and at Championship Off Road Racing events. The Mini Coopers will be used to conduct ride and drive events for tire sealers, consumers and the media. Ah, how well I remember m:, old Mini Cooper! SCORE STANDINGS - 'With only two races remaining on the SCORE calendar, many of the classes are not yet decided and it is anybody's trophy to capture for the 2003 season. To date, the overall points leaders are the young team of Eric Allen and Adam Pfankuch, they lead the Class 1600 group by 44 points and they have the overall lead by 14 points. The boys won the Laughlin race, the San Felipe L.50 and the Baja 500, mighty impressive, and they overcame some difficulties at Henderson to take third in class in their VW powered Jimco. Their KIT team (Keep It Together) has been very impressive and the boys intend to keep it chat way. In the Trophy-Truck class it's another combo that is doing right well this year. Running a Ford F-150 is the team of Gus Vildosola and Rob MacCachren but their lead is only 8 points over the never to be counted out pair of Tim and Ed Herbst in another Ford F-150. The Herbst brothers won the Henderson event and are therefore the winningest drivers in the Trophy-Truck class, they have won 10 of the 60 SCORE Trophy-Truck events. To recap the points standings in brief form we have: Trophy-Truck, Gus Vildosola/Rob MacCachren, 250 points. Tim/Ed Herbst, 242, Mark Pose/Jerry Whelchel, 196, Scott Steinberger/Jesse Jones, 191, Brian Collins, 155, Jim Beaver, 154 and Steve Sourapas, 147. Class 1, Dale Ebberts/Ernie Castro Jr, 289, Mark/Gary Weyhrich, 265, Troy Herbst, 262, Ron Brant, 243 and Chuck Hovey 207.

SCORE HENDERSON'S TERRIBLE 250 Herbsts Take overall By Judy Smith Photos: Track.side Photo Vic Bruckmann and Kash Vessels teamed in Bruckmanh's Jimco to take the win in the SCORE Lite class by 25 minutes at Henderson's Terrible 250. ·. · Henderson, NV: Tim and Ed Herbst drove their Ford Trophy Truck to the overall victory at SCORE's Henderson's Terrible 250, the mid-summer celebration sponsored in a large part by Herbst Gaming. As it did last year, this year's edition of the race included charity bowling a pit-crew challenge, a contingency area live concert and a well attended free buffet diµner, concert and fireworks show for all the race folks at Herbst's hotel and casino on Flamingo Blvd. Although racing numbers had been assigned as entries were received, the drawing for start position didn't happen until midway through the buffet.dinner. This year there were no motorcycle or quads racing, so there was a little more freedom when· it came to organizing the schedule. SCORE· officials decided on a late date contingency and an early morning race. So while the dinner, drawing and fireworks were on Thursday night, the contingency and tech parade didn't start until five o'clock on Friday. It ran until about 10 p.m., and was much cooler and more comfortable tl;ian it had been . the previous year. The Pit Crew Challenge went off during that time period. There were two divisions: Trucks and Open Wheel, and the money was divided Eric Fisher and Isaac Chapluk shared the driving in their Class 9 Garibay. had suspension and brake problems, but went back to Baja with the victory. evenly. In the Truck division the winning team was Alan Pflueger's group, with a time of 53. 79 seconds. In the Open Wheel division, which included the 5-1600s and the Class 11 cars, the Jason Lakin/Todd . Cunningham 5-1600 crew took first place in a time of 49.17 seconds. It was worth the effort, because first place money was a nice $1600 for them. All told there was $7000 cif purse to split up among the top teams. There was additional money up for grabs for the overall winner of the race also, to the tune of $10,000 and in every class that had at least· entries there would be a $1,000 bonus for first place and $500 for the second place finisher. Race day started, at 6 a.m. with Classes 5-1600, 9, 3, 11, Sportsman Buggy and Sportsman Truck scheduled to start at 30 second intervals. The 5-1600s and Class 9 were to do three laps and the others were to do four laps knowing that it would take the 5-1600s and 9s well over two hours to do a lap. Thus, the reasoning went, they'd be half to three-quarters of the way around their first lap by the time the second group started, leading off with the Trophy Trucks at 8 a.m. Except for the fact that four of the 5-1600s ran · their laps in less than two hours it was a good plan. As it turned out, two of the Baja Bugs got. through the start/finish just before the first Trophy Truck took off at 8 a.m. and Rick Ellison and Bill Hernquist teamed in Ellison's Honda·powered Chenowth, had throttle cable trouble, but still took the win in Class 10. the other two were intermingled. Not a happy prospect ·for either class. The Class 9 cars weren't far behind them, and came through the s/f in the midst of the Class 1 starters. In the second group of starters they were all required to do three laps except 7S and 7SX, who did two, and the lone Stock Full entry of John Griffin's Hummer, which only one lap. The temperatures were headline stuff on Thursday and Friday, with the local area reco·rding record-setting highs. The "world's tallest" thermometer at Baker· had reportedly recorded 128 degrees late on Wednesday, and Thursday was also up into the 120s. Sales of water and ice skyrocketed. Racers who ~ow better were concentrating on hydrating their bodies. Out at the start/finish area, a broad dry lake northwest of Boulder City, the local communities set up a string of tents to provide shade for the spectators. A smattering of vendors provided food and drink. There was also a traveling stage, with sound system and an announcer to keep the spectators informed of who was going past. The infield consisted of about seven turns and was liberally sprinkled with bumps and jumps. It was definitely not a high speed infield, and it was a no-passing zone. The pits were set up just before the entrance to the infield, so once through it and past the start/finish check at its end, the drivers could stomp on the throttle again. The course ran almost entirely to the south and west of the dry lake, skirting the eastern edge of the McCullough Mountain Range as it headed south. After about 20 miles the racers headed west, up and across the mountain, and then out toward Highway 15, where Pit B, the designated spectator area, was just east of the town of Jean. At that point they went south again, for about eight miles, and turned back to the north. A~ Mile 50, which was at a point where the inbound and outbound course were at their closest, the racers headed east again, back up through the mountains, and then dropped down into the much hotter valley on the east side of the mountains. It was mostly fast and dusty as they worked their way back to the start/finish line. As always, the Trophy Trucks were first in line (at least, first in the eight o'clock group) with ten entries. But they were reduced to eight before the first lap was over. Jim Beaver and his Ford went out on that lap, and . so did the team of Dave Ashley and Dan Smith, also in a Ford, who were on the trailer very quickly. At the front of the pack the lead belonged to Marty Coyne, in Robbie Gordon's old Ford. He had over two minutes on Larry Ragland in Brian Collins' Chevy, Tim and Ed Herbst ran third in their Ford. They were testing some new BFG tires, 30 inches tall, and liking the way they could blow through the rocks with apparent immunity from tire damage. On the second lap the Herbsts recorded the fast time for the race, at 1:21:41 for the 80 miles, and moved into the lead, with three minutes on Gus Vildosola and Rob McCachren in another Ford. Vildosola had started, and as with · most teams, they'd changed drivers midway through the second lap. Collins and Ragland were now third, a minute and 26 seconds later. Jesse Jones was having electrical problems involving his Ford's alternator and batteries, and was unable to get where there would be someone to help. The BLM had set tight clamps on chase crew travel, and it was a no-no to go out into the desert to help a disabled car unless the team could get permission from officials. That took a good deal of time and · wasn't always feasible. Not necessarily impossible, just too time-consuming to be helpful. Coyne, whose son, Travis, was driving the second half of the race, also had alternator trouble and lost a lot of time. At the beginning of the third lap the Herbst truck made a brief stop just past the start/fin ish, so navigator A.J. Martin could reach over and unhook the drivers' side window net, which had been accidentally snapped down on Ed's helmet pumper hose and radio wire. It tore the wire loose and made the helmet non-functional, so it had to be fixed and it wasn't a one-handed job. It cost them only a few seconds, but the race was tight. They'd had Vildosola's truck in their sights and a couple of Class 1 cars were challenging seriously for the overall also. Bryan Freeman and Bruce Fraley had a good day in their Fraley chassis, and with only a little fuel pump trouble took the Class 1600 victory by just under two minutes. Dan Fresh drove his Class 7SX Jeep Comanche the required two laps with his fuel pumps wrapped in wet towels, to earn the class victory. They charged through the 120+ weather, liking the. new tires more Pages September 2003 Dusty Times

He tried to ignore it and drive that way, but then the hose became entangled in his arm and the helmet shield fogged, so he had to fix it. It happened over and over. He felt it cost him a lot of time. The Weyhrich team fmished fifth. They'd lost their ignition (a repeat of a problem they'd had in the BITD race two weeks before) and their clutch.

In fourth it was the team of Ken and Clay Flippin in a VW powered Jimco and Ron and Travis Brookshire were fifth in their Honda Jimco. Christensen had an overheating problem and had slowed considerably, while Dennis Hunter had also lost about 20 minutes in the honda Dunrite. Jim Anderson, in a VW Dunrite, was not having a good day either. Hunter and Anderson both failed to get the third lap done and Christensen ground to a half in an area where no help could get to him. The Yees, who'd l!.lready replaced that axle, broke a c.v. joint on their second lap and began the chore of on-course repairs all over again. Ultimately, they timed out. Ellison w;rily watched his temperature gauge, but kept his foot in it as much as he dared, and got the win for himself and Hernquist. They were about 49 seconds ahead of the Flippins, who'd had two flats, both timed so they could get them changed in a pit. In third it was Mark and C.J. Hutchins, about nine minutes further back. Hutchins had actually passed Ellison when Ellison slowed to keep from cooking his motor, but then had slid off a turn and flattened two tires at once, letting Ellison regain his lead. Martenson was fourth another two and a half minutes back, followed by the Brookshires in fifth place. Jason Hunter was sixth about 25 minutes later, and in seventh, and last, it was George Erl and Steve Myers in theirToyotaJimco. Myers had worn himself out on the first lap when he'd lost over two hours trying to fix a problem with a tossed belt, and Erl had taken over a bit early and finished the day. Halopoff and Lerner had apparently lost their motor on the last lap. They never finished. Class 8 had a tough day at Henderson. Five trucks started, but only two made it all the way. Jeff Broughton and Jeff Stowers didn't get the first lap done in their Ford, but David Sykes did, and he held the lead at the Dave Westhem Chevy Silverado. He had three minutes on Dave Raimonde in his Chevy C1500. Mike Doherty had his Chevy in third place, while Larry and Nick Vanderwey, in a GMC, spent fwe hours dealing with some disaster. Neither the Vanderweys nor Raimonde completed a second lap. Sykes did the entire second lap and continued to have no problem, building a big lead. Doherty had a shock reservoir come loose and it knocked off his power steering bolt, which cost some time to track down Dusty Times

Kory Halopoff and Harley Letner had the lead in Class 10 for two laps and looked like a shoo-in in their Henry's chassis, but they couldn't get the last lap done. Joe Heger and Shawn McCallum had a hard fight on their hands this time, and finished the day in second place in Class 5 by a mere three seconds. Troy Herbst was working up through the Class 1 pack on the third lap in his Smithbuilt Ford Truggy and had two flats at once. That dropped him to third place. and fix. Sykes handed the truck over to Westhem for the third lap, and Westhem had a good run also. He recorded the fast time for the class, at 1:34:56, even though it was stalling occasionally in rough turns. They took the win, and Doherty, who drove all three laps, took second place. He reported only one flat during the trip, and said it was a "pretty fun day." The SCORE Lite class had nine starters. There had been 10, but Jake Batulis, with a new car, had · what was reported as "major motor· trouble" on Friday, and withdrew. The first car out of the race in this class was Jerry Penhall, who was spotted on a tow strap early in the morning. But everyone else got at least the first lap done. And the lead belonged to Vic Bruckmann in a Jimco. He had eight minutes on second place Corey Cook in a Porter. In third it was Troy Stockwell in a Raceco and Keith Basso and Brian Freemal, in a Tatum were fourth. Brian Ickler, usually in front of this pack, ran fifth, 15 minutes off the lead pace after having a problem with the wiring on his Jimco. Kenny Stroud, in a Jimco, got stuck in gear· and after losing a bunch of time, didn't get any more laps completed. On the second lap Bruckmann held his lead, now up to 18 minutes, and it was Basso and Freemal in second place. Cook's co-driver, Bill Witt, ran third, Ickler had moved up to fourth and now Stockwell was in fifth place. Bruckmann' s co-driver, Kash Vessels, who took over midway through the second lap, kept moving along steadily. He said that the two had spent a day working on "dialing in" the suspension of their car a couple of weeks before the race, and it had paid off. They had a flawless day, and Vessels said that part way through the final lap he'd been able to let off a bit and "just cruise." He recorded the fast time for the class, at 1:37 :35 on that lap and they took the win by 25 minutes. Ickler, who had a couple of flats during the day, also had a good last lap, only 38 seconds slower than Vessels, and moved up to finish second. Cook and Witt, who had to deal with a closed air filter on the last lap, were third, followed in by Stockwell in fourth pla<;e. Mark Kyle, who comes from Texas to race, was fifth in his Mirage, followed in· by Tom Ridings, Mirage, who'd lost some time on the second lap with a nosebleed caused by the heat. He was the final finisher. Class 5 had only two entries, but. the best race of the day. Joe Heger started in the McCallum car, and · George Seeley was driving his yellow New Beetle. Seeley had about a three minute lead at the end of the first lap, but it was a transitory Dusty Times thing. They were running close and swapped the lead often. Seeley stopped every lap for gas and oil. Neither was having any mechanical trouble. Heger's co-driver, Shawn McCallum, got in, but he became ill and Heger had to get back in and finish the final lap. Seeley, who's taken a conservative approach to this season, hoping to qualify for the Toyota True Grit award at the end of the season by finishing every race, decided he was a bit bored with that approach, and went for the win this time. Heger always goes for the win,. They were within sight of each other the whole time. Heger led by 45 seconds at the end of the second lap. And at the end of the third lap Heger was physically in front as they neared the checkered flag. Heger crossed the line first, but Seeley was so close behind hifQ that no one could tell who'd won. Seeley had ticked off the best time for their three laps at 1:38:37. Once the scoring team had figured the numbers Seeley had the victory by three seconds. Heger said it was "the best race I've ever had!" In Class 7 there were six starters, but Barry Karakas and his Toyota had terminal trouble on the· first lap, and so did A.J, DeNunzio in his Toyota. A.J.'s truck was overheating and when he got under the hood to see what was what he discovered a non-functioning fan motor. After cooling the truck down he motored to a nearby pit where he made time-consuming 1 repairs. But, once back on course the truck moved along at good rate, its temp in the normal range and steady. Then A.J. goofed, got stuck in some silt, and after a quick check of his watch decided he'd never get the race finished with all the down time. So he hollered for his trailer. But the end of the class was motoring on. Craig Turner had nearly a two minute lead at the end of the first lap, in his ford, and it was Shawn Wanzek, in another Ford, in second place. About 20 minutes behind them Daniel Chamlee and Hector Salazar, both in Fords, were within a minute of each other vying for this place. On the second lap Turner recorded the class fast lap, at 1:39:53, and he was now 26 minutes in front of Salazar. Wanzek had power steering trouble, and drove 30 miles without its help to the· pit where repairs could be made. All told he lost about an hour and 10 minutes, but was third, ,because Chamlee didn't get the second lap finished. At the beginning of the third lap Turner had to replace his drive shaft, bufotherwise he was having Donald Moss drove his Class 3 Bronco all the way, completing his two required laps in just over five hours to go home with a win. Marcos Nunez and Norberto Rivera had a good day until just before the finish when they ran out of gas. A good samaritan gave them fuel and saved their 5-1600 win for them. September 2003 Scott McMillin soloed the day in his VB powered Porter chassis, and with nothing more time consuming than taking on fuel, went home with the Class r win. no problems.

Todd Cunningham and Jason Lakin shared the driving in their 5-1600, found the motor heating up a bit, but hung in there for a second ,place finish.

Trucks so early, but they always know it's ij possibility when they drive in a lap race. Ruben Gutierrez, Jr. ran second, about 31 seconds later and Todd Cunningham was third, another three minutes back. Brent Shermak didn't male it around, nor did Gregory Ferruzzo, so there were only five cars moving. Mario Reynoso had already lost a half hour. , They were slower on the second. lap, probably looking for their rear• view mirror. Nunez and his co-driver, Norberto Rivera, held on to their lead. Gutierrez was still second, only four minutes back and Cunningham and Lakin were third. Reynoso was fourth now as Rob Taylor who'd been fourth, failed to make the second lap. As they got almost to the finish, but still near the pits, Nunez and Rivera's car ran out of gas. The passenger climbed out and started toward the pits to see if he could scrounge some, and sure enough, someone came up with a gallon of gas. It was plenty to get them the short distance to the finish line, and they hadn't lost their lead. They took the win by just under five minutes. Cunningham and Lakin, who worried when their motor got hot, had no problems and took second place. In third it was Gutierrez and his co-driver Victor Herrera, Jr. They'd broken a clutch cable. Reynoso didn't get his third lap finished. Class 9 had only three entries, and had only one finisher. On the first lap Eric Fisher had the lea,d in his Garibay chassis, with about a half minute on' Ken Tapert in a Chenowth.

Tapert,. whose car is for sale, got clobbered by a couple of Class 1 cars, one bump being solid enough to boot him off the course. He decided that discretion was the better part of valor, and since he'd already bought himself a new 1600 cat and he really wanted to have the Nine car in saleable condition, he withdrew. Isaac Chapluk took over for Fisher on Lap 2 and he had a problem with one of the shocks. He _ also lost a brake line when the mount broke and tore it apart.

It's not known why Fernando Flores was late, but Eric Solorzano, also tardy, said they couldn't hear any cars taking off and couldn't see . a crowd, so they didn't think anything was happening yet;. and decided to make a bathroom stop. Solorzano had the lead at the end of the first lap, but only by four minutes. Flores had "something wrong" with his steering. Roman Peyreyra, who took over for Solorzano, went off into the second lap in a big hurry, for some reason thinking Flores was in front of him. They'd lost track of him in the big infield pit area apparently. And maybe that was why Peyreyra recorded the fast time for this group Eric Solorzano and Roman Peyreyra drove one lap each in their Class 11 car and took the win in spite of getting a late start. David Sykes· and Dave Westhem had only a little trouble with their Chevrolet stalling in the rough turns, and took the Class B victory. Dusty Times

Cory Bantilan rolled his Class 9 Baja Bug about five miles off the start. He got it back on its wheels but had blown the motor before getting much further. Don Wall, in the other car, did one lap in a respectable two hours and nine minutes, but then didn't finish Lap 2. In the Sportsman Truck class the only entry was Ivan Loomis in the Toyota which has the external roll cage. He didn't get his first lap done either. In the Stock Full class only John Griffin entered this event. About a half hour before he was due to start he decided that there would be no point in him going around more than once, so he went to see what the officials thought of that idea. Apparently they concurred, and it was decided that he'd be officially required to do only one lap. At that it took him two hours and 45 minutes. He had a diesel fuel leak when a hose clamp came off. Griffin said this year's course wasn't as "bad as last year." He goes into the record books with a class win. Although the weather was terribly hot, there was some cloud cover early in the day that held the temperatures to a lower level for the morning hours. Either because of what they'd learned last year, or because the start was in the morning instead of the late afternoon as it was last year, there were fewer drivers suffering from the heat and loss of fluids. That's not to say they weren't bushed, but they weren't falling out of their cars and collapsing this year as they did last year. There was a lot of pre-race talk about whether or not it was an advantage to be one of the locals. It's hard to say for sure, but a Las Vegas team did win overall, take a second in the Trophy truck class, and third in Class 1. It was also a Las Vegas team that won Class 1/ 2-Iu00, and the second place finishers in that class were from Vegas also. Second and third place in Class 10 were from Vegas, and the third place team in SCORE Lite hailed from Boulder City and Henderson while the lone survivor in the Protrucks was a Vegas driver. It's-interesting to mull over the meani_ng of all that, but it needs to be remembered that they're all experienced drivers with records of success that go back. for years for the most part. SCORE said that they tried to do away with any advantage the locals might have had due to their familiarity with the terrain, but it's hard to see how they could have done Illich. On the other hand, in November when many of these same folks head for Baja for the Baja 1000, there will be San Diego racers who have the advantage of proximity, and no one worries overmuch about that. The Primm race is ·next on the schedule fqr SCORE, on Septem-ber 19th, and then the Baja 1000 comes in November.

·31ST CYPRUS RALLY 2003 Subaru, Solberg_ score.At Cyprus-By Martin Holmes . . . Petter Solberg and Philip Mills take to the water in their Subaru lmpreza as they head for a great win at the 31'' Cyprus Rally. Subaru are back winning again! After six lean months in which the team had stn.lggled to -make the 2003-version lmpreza reliable, Petter SoJberg had an almost faultless run and won the Cyprus Rally, the hottest .and slowest event in the world rally championship. He eventually won with ease, after holding a constant but slender lead over the only surviving works Peugeot, driven by Harri Rovanpera. Be-hind came the three Citroens which generally performed very poorly but which were, signifi-· candy, extremely reliable. Cham-pionship leader Richard Burns once again suffered mechanical troubles and this time was forced to retire while reigning champion Marcus Gronholm retired after transmission trouble. Subaru not only won the event outright, but three of their latest WRX model lmprezas headed the PCWRC category. This event rounded off the first half of the 2003 season and was the last rough gravel event before the series moves on to asphalt and smooth gravel for the rest of the season. This event, now in its fourth year in the world championship, has become identified as the slow-est rally in the championship, on account of the high proportion of narrow and twisty roads; Coming two weeks after the Acropolis it seemed strange that the only two countries in• the world which officially. speak Greek both had world champi-onship rallies so close to each other. The onranizers implemented the FIA's spectator control mea-sures by limiting attendance of spectators only .to specific enclo-sures, providing "Park and Ride" transport as much to prevent spectators parking close to stages as to prevent them going into un-authorized areas. Three com-pletely new stages were being run, and to the surprise of competi-tors these were slower than ever. In a year in which the island had suffelid for economic reasons, the event was being used as the basis for a major international · tourist _promotion. It was ex-pected 17,000 visitors. would come for the rally. Cyprus was a rally under a cloud, a victim of the popularity of this kind of event. With the pressure from the FIA to lose a rally from the exist-ing WRC calendar in order to make a space for Mexico, .the fin-ger of suspicion was pointing to Greece, Turkey and Cyprus, all · geographically close and of a simi-lar style to each other. Landing fairly hard, Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena drove their Citroen Xsara to a third place finish in Cyprus. · Page 18. Anoth·er open debate was the effect of the new FIA points cal-culation system, at the approach to die half way point in the 2003 season. It was interesting ro see the way that Richard Burns, to his surprise, had increased his lead in the drivers' category de-soite mechanical problems which delayed him in Greece. He was having an extraordinary season._ Of the 113 stages held prior to Cyprus, the. championship leader had only been fastest on 11, and seven of these were ori the New Zealand event .alone. Under the 2002 points system, Burns would have beeµ lying third; behind Gronholm and Sainz! It has been his consistency which gave him the championship's lead. Not a single team brought a new car for this event, and the closeness after Acropolis pre-vented team~ from fully analyz-ing their problems on that event. Citroen were anxious to over-co me the ECU overheating trouble that had afflicted them, while .Peugeot, on instructions from the FIA, had to dismantle the water spray system, which operated on their air condition-ing radiators. Once again they were the only team with air con-ditionit).g fitted to their cars, t}lis time on all four factory prepared cars. They had, however, discov-ered the reason for the gearbox failures on the Acropolis cars of Burns and Rovanpera, which was a new' type of clutch and was found to be too aggressive in its operation. Clutches from an al-ternative supplier were used this time. Gronholm's fuel problem was found to be dtie to the re-turn pipe between fuel tanks be-coming disconnected. Since their win on the Acropolis, Ford's en-gineers devised a new, stronger anti roll car linkage, while Suba-ru discovered the reason Solberg hacl driveshaft failure; the wrongly assembled unit from a supplier. This was to be the final appearance of a works entered Skoda Octavia WRC before the September 200,3 Harri Rovanpera and Risto Pietilainen corner hard in their Peugeot 206 on their way to a second overall at Cyprus. Fabia WRC makes its debut in Deutschland. Since the Octavia debut at Monte Carlo 1999 it has entered 47 events and the team has made a total ·of 111 entries so far. Best performance was Safari• 2001 when Schwarz finished third after initially leading. Justin Dale, reigning British Super 1600 champ1.on driver, started only his second full world champi"onship event -and on both occasions he has been a fully nominated works entered driver, this time by Hyun-dai. This entry is part of a pro-gram of events which includes entries in FIA Middle East cham-pionship event as well, in which he is driving a Subaru. This was the only event in the PCWRC cal-endar in which all competitors had elected to start . . (FIA cham-pionship rules dictate drivers must nominate six of the seven qualifying . events). Marcos · Ligato's team Top Run had been workine hard with Ohlins on sus-pension developments. He also had a new co-driver (Dariusz Burkat, a renewal of an earlier, long time relationship), a latest model car (Evo VII) and a new preparation company (his own, Kulig Preparation) for Janusz Kulig. Hoping for an end to re-cent frustrations was the Roma-nian Constantin "Titi" Aur. "I hope the slow speed of this rally will mean I won't be so far be-hind the others this time!" Cana-dian driver Patrick Richard flew to Cyprus immediately after con-testing the fifth round of his na-tional series, the Pacific Forest Rally -even further away. Rowe and Blomqvist started with new WRX cars run by David Sutton cars, identical to the Procar team car driven to second place in Group N at Acropolis Rally by "Stratissino". ,.An.ticipated weather condi-tions were difficult to predict. A recent hot weather spell caused PCWRC champio·n Karamjit Singh to say "It's actually hotter in Cyprus than at home in Ma-laysia!" Daytime coastal temp.era--tu res in Lemesos were around 30-35 degrees, with a one degree drop for every 200 metres in-crease in altitude. Temperatures in Lemesos were around 36 de-grees on the days up to the start, threatening thundery days to come. This was, therefore, ex-pected to be the hottest rally of this season, and the slowest. The combination of both factors meant the-rally, in human terms, had to be the greatest challenge of them all. The slow speed meant . that the cooling both of the me-chanical parts of the car and the crew themselves could never work as comfortably as on faster events. So far as the drivers were con-cerned, PCWRC driver Niall McShea explained, "With rocks close beside the track you must . not let your car slip even a centimetre off.line." Two veterans were being feted before fhe event. Vic Elford, one. of motor sport's greatest all-rounders whose expertise helped get the rally ·started in the first place a genera(ion. ago, was Guest of Honour. Then Stig Blomqvist, the PCWRC driver in the David Sutton team, winner of the event 30 years ago. "We came over from doing the Acropolis Rally in Greece and asked the mechanics if they wanted to work in Cyprus with us. Two of them agreed, so we did the rally. And won!" Times have changed. This year a gentle-man driver entered the rally. Opinions about the-event var-ied. Carlos Sainz would not give a clear opinion. "It is a very good place to bring VIP guests to see a rally. It is the roughest rally of the season and also the slowest rally, and of course· drivers should -excel in every type of condition,." Acropolis Rally winner Markko Martin, "It is quite different from the Acropolis. Greece has flow-ing tracks, here the hacks are narrow and twisty: It is more a matter of survival than speed. For me the Cyprus Rally roads are zero fun to drive." The heat was also quite a challenge. Petter Solberg, "It gets up to 67 degrees inside our cars." Teams shied away from fitting cool suits to the crews, because of the inevitability of damage, though Peugeot per-sisted with their air conditioning, . even though the air conditioning system had to be automatically switched off if the engine began to run too hot. Leg 1 -Four stages, gravel, 99kms. There were to be only four stages, a loop of two run twice, with a two hour rest halt between the sections so that the service crews could check the ex-tent of the interim deterioration of the roads. The second and fourth stages, at 38km were the longest of the event, also the twistiest where it.was hard even to average 60kph. In the morning's first loop, running or-der was going to be critical, but because of the subsequent double usage (as iri New Zealand) only for the first two stages. So it was that the 11th car on the road, the Peugeot of Harri Rovanpera, gained an immediate lead over fifth running Solberg and 13th running Didier Auriol, while first running Richard Burns finished the first stage in 11th place, los-ing a second a kilometre.

OFF ROAD MOTORSPORTS HALL OF FAME Ribbon cutting ceremony B:y Judy Smith Photos: Ton:y Tellier Rod Hall, the driving force behind finding a home for the Off Road Hall Of Fame addresses the assembled invitees. Rodney Hall had a brainstorm a few years ago, and with the energy and persistence he's put to such good use in years .of off road racing, he developed his idea into reality. Hall purchased the assets of N ORRA (North American Off Road Racing Association) late in the '90's, thinking he might want to be able to use that name some day. But when he went through the papers that had founder, Ed Pearlman's files, he discovered the beginnings of an off road hall of fame. Indeed, Pearlman had gone so far as to induct a group of off road pio-neers·into his fledgling hall of fame in 1978, but he hadn't been able to locate a permanent home for a dis-play. Hall decided to try to do that. He began talking to various off road people, and to businessmen in the Reno area where he lives. Ulti-mately he came into contact with a friend who is on the Board of Direc-tors of the National Automobile Mu-seum (usually thought of as the Harrah's Collection), located in the heart of Reno. It sounded like a good idea to him also, and he took it to the board. And what finally hap-pened was that Hall had found a home for the Hall of Fame. Dave Churchill (center) chews the fat with other interested parties at the ribbon cutting ceremony in Reno. After a lot of meetings and much discussion, a Board of Directors was formed, and Hall was named -presi-dent. A panel of advisors was named, and that group consists of folks well known to most off roaders: Walker Evans, Steve Kelley, Dick Landfield, Billy Robertson, Bob Bower, Sal Fish Bob _Bower was the MC of the ribbon cutting event and did his usual George Thompson, Rod Hall's right hand man in the hall of fame Judy Smith shares some memories with friends at the Off Road Hall great job of keeping everyone interested and occupied. operation evokes a bit of laughter with a Thompson witticism.

I still had fun," which is what it is all about. Their third place was a couple of minutes back. "30 Racing" factoid: Todd Craig, Tommy's brother, co-drove #985 bringing it home in an oily fourth place in Class 9. Johnny Bums: "I started the race and went two laps then was not feeling well so I put my co<lriver, Todd, in. He was goingwell, running for second, then got a rear flat on Lap 4 in a bad spot. He got back going then cracked the engine case, so we added oil for two laps." The first five cars were· spread over a 30 minute gap with George "Oopah!" Degougadis taking fifth ahead of a leisurely Cory and Milo Torres who struggled to sixth in an under-the-wire 7:59:43. Class 5-1600 for the CFD of Smith and Ditzy Dittfield it would have been otherwise. Ault took two hours to do Lap 1 but Smith returned the favor -line-to-line -on his fourth tum. Tiny Tommy Dittfield -the man who taught Daren McGuffin how not to drive-started in car #572 and then had DoR Paul Smith drive the last half. "The throttle was sticking" but not enough to win ... plus they broke a bottom adjuster bolt on the beam. At RMS Paul had a flat that cost them a lot of down time. Honda of North Hollywood Report: "Dittfield called Stuart Chase and I to run a spare six miles out to his co<log. When we got there we found out that they had a left rear flat, no jack, and no lug -wrench." (Note: Smith had had a breaker bar but dropped the socket and lost it in the sand.) "We had a lug wrench but no jack ready for that type of car. Stuart and I lifted the car by hand while the driver pulled off the flat; we rested a second, and then lifted the car again while he put on the new tire. CHECKERS DON'TNEED JACKS. ,.

Diego Lopez and Robert "Not well" Otwell (#748) just called it quits. They used one of their truck's brake lines to fix the hydraulic clutch hose, which was OK since the brakes had gone ~ut earlier, anyway. (Note: Lucky guys and wise men. I had to make one for the Cherokee when the rubber hose split in San Felipe, by brazing a 3/8-copper line onto the two steel reverse-flared ends.) Then the "top end broke" and they limped home to Main. They went two laps with no brakes, and they took 5:22 to do it, too. Tom and Jerry Coon, who usually run in Sportsman Truck, ate up four hours for their only lap. Unlimited Sportsman Eight entries, five finishers.

Casino West, located on Main· Street in Yerington was the sponsor of the race. Friday night, a welcome party was held_ for attendees of the race. On Saturday, it was time to get down to business. Tech inspection and registration was held out on the side of Casino West, while racers could be seen returning from pre-running the course. Later on in the evening, it was time for the race participants to wind up the power plants and shoot a cruise down Main Street. Led by a beauti-ful white Ford Crown Victoria with fancy red and blue lights flashingwith one of Yerington's finest in com-mand, the annual Yerington Parade kicked off. Several of the racers had loaded up some bags of candy and was gra-ciously lobbing mounds of the sweet stuff to the kids who had come out with their parents to check out these high powered rides. When we approach an off road trip, whether it be rocks or pre-run-ning, we usually have a laugh over · someone's misfortune after we are assured of a safe and successful tri-umph. Matt Taylor's story was no different. On Friday, Taylor .bad gone off into the desolation to scout the . course. Unfortunately, Taylor's pre-runner suffered a malady of mechani-cal nature. Spotting some "lights" off in the distance, Taylor decided to walk to the "lights", remember this is Nevada we ate talking about After walking, in his words, "20 miles", Tay-lor returned to the truck and enjoyed a night under the stars. Taylor was able to.get the pre-runner back into operational condition and return to the quaint confines of Yerington. The sun rose above the Nevada desert early on Sunday morning, sig-naling the beginning of what would prove to be a hard, long day for some and ~ glorious ·continuance of the season for others. · It was hard to get the racers to come to a consensus on the track conditions. A slim majority expressed an opinion that the 68.5 mile course was rough, while several stated the course was fast and smooth com-pared to years past. There was a lot of mention of a place called Endo· Alley. Respect is what the Endo Alley Auto demanded. Word did filter down that Class 1 driver Steve Sulli-van had pinged 125 mph on one sec-tion of the course. A 8:00 a.m., Rich Klein called the driver's meeting to order. Since this was Rich' sJirst desert race, he turned over the master of ceremony duties to Ed Robinson. After Ed was done, the race setup was read off. The lO's, 1 's, 8's, Semi-Pro's, and 7's were gonna drive around for four laps while the 9 cars were relegated to three and the Pilots one lap. Rich introduced Fran Hull, Outdoo Rec-reation Planner from the Bureau of Land Management, who reminded everyone of their environmental du-ties. When Rich asked if there was any final questions, one Class 7 driver brought up the question of three laps for the class. So Rich adjourned the competitors, except for Class 7. In truly red-blooded American fashion, Rich held a vote among the drivers. Only two hands could be seen raised in favor of a four lap run; while in true DNC fashion, more hands than drivers were seen in favor of the three laps. In retrospect, it was probably the best decision. With SNARS providing radio 13 Semi-Pro cars went off the line and when the dust cleared it was Chere Lehners taking the win, seen here at a road crossing. Dusty Times

BAJA PITS A Short ·History Lesson For A Newcomer· By Byrle M_oore This isn't all of the Baja Pits crew but it is a goodly portion of the guys who'll service your race car in the pits. Martha, is due to give birth to their first baby, on the day of the race. "We know it will be a boy. In fact, we've already chosen a name." Ernie Alexander Negrete will probably be making racing news in about 20 years? Ernie who is an assistant manager at Fuller Ford says, "There will be more races, but the event of your first born only · happens once." I'm sure this part of the race family will be rooting from their cell phones. The mafra.ger called anothe;--cousin, and within an hour a truck loaded with 10 soldiers and all the tools appeared. Orozco was told that if he wanted to press charges the various tools would have to be kept as evidence. Since he needed the tools for the pits he declined. Other stolen items were recovered from other incidents and those victims prosecuted. Thieves beware! From that incident on, the Baja Pit crews have protection from the time they get to the races until they leave for their various homes. Carlos Orozco founded the Baja Pits 18 years ago and when he's not around the mighty Watch Cat supervises all activities. There is one more NegJete family supporte·r, Larry ana Ernie•' s grandfather Arcadio is 83 years old.

By Wayne Nosala CORE had nine cars to pit for at the More/Snore night race. With three cars finishing in the top five in the 1600 battle. Night races are always fun, but the added rain showers made for muddy fun. Everyone I spoke with had a good time. I was all set up to do my pitting duties at Pit A when the call from Brad Inch came in to take over driving duties of hi~ 1600 car. I finished fifth. From behind the wheel, CORE did a great job in the one stop I made for gas. All the pits were well lit. Radio contact was superb. I must say that everyone out there looked like they were having fun. Spectators around the course were cheering for any car that passed. Being on the race course with Snorten Norton's last run was wonderful to be a part of. Godspeed, Mick. I know the crew at Pit A made it a point to cheer on the Nova each lap. Davy Girdner: Davy's homebuilt chassis shows that you don't have to buy a chassis from a well known name. He finished second. His two seat car always seems to work well. He did have to add some power steering fluid and it seems · he too make a co-driver change, thus taking a bit of time. Randy Jones: Raridy was on the pipe as usual. His orange single seat Bunderson was really working well this weekend. He did roll but got back on the pace with no trouble. He drove the entire race and finished up in third. Brad Inch: Brad started ninth. He had a good first lap, he rolled at the start of the second lap. With the help from a couple of spectators, he got back on his wheels. Broke a HID and hurt his knee, otherwise the car was unhurt. Don Johnson: Don rolled his two seat Bunderson 1600 car before the night fell taking out his four Hella's HID lights in the process. He did have a s,pare set but this required a bit of work to uninstall. He called it a night and finished 33rd. Bryon Zeigler: Bryon finished 13th in the 1600 clash. Paul Smith: Paul was doing a terrific job with a half hour lead. He had to change a flat and ended up in second place. The battle for first in the 5-1600 class was very close. Paul and Mike Ault fought until the end. Paul finished up in second place. Ryan Shank: Ryan finished in 21st place in his Bunderson 1600 car. Darin McGuffin: Darin drove his single seat 9 car to a third place finish. The car developed an oil leak, resulting in oil needing to be added throughout the race. This didn't stop Darin from getting to the finish line. Johnny Burns: In his single seat 9 car, with Todd Craig co-driving, they finished in fourth place. Johnny was extremely happy with this ·Fabricators finish that resulted in his first trophy. Johnny also developed an oil leak. After making a few unplanned stops to add oil he brought the car to the finish line without motor damage. Tom Coon: Tom showed up in Pit A during the downpour of rain. His truck needed a couple of repairs before they hit the track. With everyone in the pit drenched and having a good time, the spare tire was taken off along with the bedsides. He almost made a lap. Right before the start/finish an I-beam broke, with no pit in sight and using what was available, he made an I-beam out of the Hi-lift jack to make it back to main. PIT CREWS: Main Pit: Tom Foudy, Bob Allison, Ian Goodyear. I would like to point out that Tom laid out a great pit in main. We had a large number of motor homes, trailers and campers. Jorn and bob did a great job in directing people where to park and getting everyone to fit. Pit A: I, Thom Singer, Ann Donaldson along with Tim Baker, his parents Ed and June, who we would like to thank for the spaghetti din~er Friday evening for everyone at main pit. The best garlic bread I have had in a long time! Also Al Baker came down for the race from Northern California. . Ryan Sharks' crew along with Davy Girdner Sr. We all like Davy Sr.'s pit sign that i:ead "loose gravel". I would like to thank Chrissie who was great on the radio and taking lap times. PitB: Pit B was staffed with father/ daughter team of Gary and Kara Hall, along with Jim Wagner and Mike Ridlin.

By Wes Wisdom · All F.A.l.R. m6mbers went to extend a very big Thank You to Mike Ahrens of the BLM. As the Off Highway Vehicle Program Coordinator out of the Barstow Field Office, he came to our meeting on his own time to talk about what is in the future for racers in the Barstow and Lucerne Valley areas. He explained what is required of the Promoters to put on a race in those areas and how the courses have been laid out. Then he gave an overview of what the BLM is going to do (the rumored "Pay to Play" fees) and why they think it is necessary. This column is not the place to discuss or try to explain this matter because it probably wouldn't be explained accurately. If y9u want the real story on what is happening, contact Mike at the BLM Barstow office. He will be more than happy to fill you in on all the details. F.A.LR. was at two races in July, the SCORE Henderson Terrible's .250 and the M.O.R.E./Snore night race at Barstow. The weather couldn't have been more different. Extremely HOT (comments of 127 degrees were heard several times) at Henderson then lightening, thunder and rain at Barstow. Summertime "weather in the desert sometimes is just weird! Seven cars took the green flag at Henderson flying the F.A.LR. banner and all but one finished. Dale Ebberts had his usual awesome day even though he only finished second in Class 1. But that's not the whole story, Dale was only ten seconds out of first in class. and only 52 seconds out of first overall!! 52 seconds between the first and fourth! What a race! Jn-SCORE Lites, Vic Brockmann ran strong to win the class. This puts Vic real close to the class points leader with two races will to go. Keep it up, Vic! Tom Ridings had some problems but he did get another finish. SCORE Lites is a very competitive class and Tom typifies the "never give up" attitude. Because of that, Tom is having a good year and is only a few points behind the class leaders. James Golden and Brent Parkhouse finished fifth and seventh respectively in Class 1/2-1600. In almost any other year, Golden would probably be leading the class points but the Allen/ Pfankuch steamroller is putting it to everybody. But he is still close enough and the season isn't over yet and we all know what can happen in racing ... By the way, Dale Ebberts, Vic Bruckmann, James Golden and Brent Parkhouse have completed every mile of every race this year! What an accomplishment. We're hoping they all can end up with True Grit awards at the end of the season. F.A.I.R. will do everything we can to help them. The other race F.A.LR. was at the M.O.R.E. Freedom 250/Snore Midnight Special night race at Barstow that was also one of the PRO 1600 events. We were pitting for 17 members and had a lot of fun.

I • personalities but F.A.I.R. tamed the darkness by providing portable light plants for all the pits. The lights were so good it made the pits look like football stadiums. Each pit could be seen from several miles away so the racers-knew exactly where they were on the course at aU times. This helped the racer's comfort level, for sure. Of the 17 members in the race, Richard Lesher was the fastest. He won Class 10 and was third overall in spite of losing many minutes replacing their amber light ... twice. Except for flats, that was· the only thing that slowed them down. John Criswell, running his Class 5 Unlimited.Baja Bug in Class 1, won the class having lapped all the other class cars. He was running very high in the Overall standings until a very long last lap but still held on to fourth OA. Also in Class 1 were Craig Reynolds and Bill Markel. Craig broke a c.v. on the second lap, fixed it after a long pit stop at Main and got back into the race. After limping around the third lap and having secured second place in class, he put it on the trailer. After two very good laps, Bill Markel had a trailing arm pivot belt come undone. That put him out of the race but he still had a good time. In Class 1/2-1600, the largest at the race with 36 entrants, Greg Blakeman ran a very consistent race and finished with a.10th place against all the PRO 1600 cars. This finish put him into the points lead for the M.O.R.E. class championship! New member Corey Goin was going well until he slowed on the last few laps and he finished just ahead of Brian Logan. Brian lost a c.v. and spent a very long time diagnosing and fixing the problem. Then, at the end of Lap 5, he radioed in asking for Brady Wisdom to drive the last two laps. Brady wasn't quite ready to jump in until he was told the car was only-one mile from the pit. He got dressed in record time. Driving suit, on Parker per -o. deUuer maximum air flow, this HJC helmet is _ -_. I\_ SneU m-rated, and is > . ~·, auaUable in sizes S-XKKL shoes, helmet, gloves in under a minute. Driver change also in under a minute. Not bad. They probably could have finished a couple of positions better if they hadn't run out of fuel just past Pit C on the last lap. Kevin Walsh, up from San Diego, was running well until both of the transmission mounts broke on the fifth lap. Jerry Longo's distributor flooded out then the distributor cap broke: finally, the # 1 spark plug blew out of the head taking the threads with it. That put him out of the race. But Jerry made out back at Pit C 'cuz Tom Mason was cooking really good food for everybody. Tom's -an animal. He did all this cooking in spite of breaking a couple of ribs just prior to the start of the race. Good man. Typical F.A.l.R. attitude. Curt Geer wasn't able to finish due to broken shocks and Brady Wisdom was put out with a broken push rod. Brady had just completely rebuilt their Mirage, all state-of-the-art equipment, and was giving his son, Jacob, his first ride in a race. Jacob was initiated properly when the car rolled on the first lap in a very slippery area. In spite of the problems, the car was working well and Brady was running high in the class when the engine put him out. In Class 9, Dan Folts, with Dad Dave in the right hand seat, was blowing the competition away. He had a seven minute lead by the end of Lap 2, but then the center of the clutch disk broke out ending their race. Harry Dunne motored to another finish, keeping his class points lead, in spite of losing his steering shaft on the first lap. Seems he was coming in_to a turn with a couple of other cars, they turned, he went straight. The coupler on the steering rack came off. The only other problems they encountered were due to all the water on the course. The radio plug on his helmet got damp and when (starttngatiS249 OO/SJ49 00 i ■ ■(Wired) I The _ comalete .

HAL FLAG -We were very saddened to hear_ of the passing of Max Thuma. Max loved racing; according to Scott McKenzie, "All he cared bout was race cars." Way back Max had a Grand National car. He was working with Dean Jeffries building cars for the Monkee's movie when he met McKenzie. It was 1972 and Max soon was working for McKenzie's Automotive in North Hollywood. Later Max went to work for Modern Motors where he helped in the building of racecars for Johnny Johnson, Ivan Stewart and Bobby Ferro. He later moved to the Mickey Thompson organization where he helped in the development of the MT Shock line and was head of the Technical Inspection force for the Mickey Thompson Stadium Race Series. When the stadium races petered out Max went with the Tracy Valenta Team, fielding cars for Rick and Roger Mears as well as Bobby Ferro. When Tracy closed his shop Max moved to Honda Motorcycles where he remained until his retirement. Max is survived by his widow, Mary Lou, his son Charles, daughters Debbie and Penny and grandchildren Jason, Debbie, Jessica, Logan, Chuck III, Cody, Tara, Mary Lou, Penny Sue and one great grandchild Zoie. Max was a good storyteller and a great listener. Our deepest sympathies go to Mary Lou and the rest of Max's family. We will miss him greatly . . .
