Trail Notes ... Ei\N STEWART ON TV -Toyota Motor Sales is presenting a new truck nd off road television series, "Tough Truckin"', with Ivan Stewart eginning on Saturday October 2. The show airs at 11:30am (Pacific and Eastern) on Spike TV. Ivan says, "The truck and off road enthusiast base is hungry for information and is ready for a television show that addresses its interests specifically. With Tough Truckin', Spike TV feeds the hunger with 13 half hour programs (7 original episodes) premiering in the 4th quarter of 2004." Anchored by the most respected off road racer in the world, Ivan Stewart, each episode of Tough Truckin' will be going to the extreme. Tough Truckin' will be testing, building and torturing the toughest trucks around. Seeing how to race and modify trucks like an off road champion and going behind the scenes and featuring highlights of some of the best off road racing around, (including Ivan Stewart's Protruck Series), Tough Truckin' will be the ultimate television show for the truck enthusiast. (From a press release August 19, 2004) BILL AMICK R.EsIGNS FROM AMA • The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) has announced that Bill Amick, its Vice President of Events and Entertainment since 1997, tendered his resignation on August 19, 2004. The resignation takes effect August 26. Amick, 53, completed his 30th year of service to the Association in May. Prior to his transfer to head up the AMA's Events and Entertainment Department, Amick had ser-ved as editor of American Motorcyclist magazine and as department head in AMA communications and AMA Pro Racing. Amick is taking time off to recuperate from a series of successful cancer related surgeries before opening a small business. He will remain as an AMA delegate to the Motocross Commission of the FIM where he has served for 18 years. "My time at the AMA has been extremely rewarding and has provided opportunities, experiences and friendships I never imagined when I joined the staff in 1974. The AMA will always be a big part of my life and I will continue to be supportive of its work in any way I can". MACCACHREN ls THE MAN To BEAT-In a press release from Bud Pico at the Henderson Convention and Visitors Bureau, a bounty :will be placed on driver Rob MacCachren in Henderson's BITD Terrible's 300 Desert Race, scheduled for December 4. Race officials announced a bounty has been placed on desert racing legend Rob MacCachren in the 1/2-1600 class. The first driver to beat MacCachren in the Terribl~'s 300 will receive a $1500 bonus. MacCachren has been racing competitively since 1982 and has over 100 race wins in his career. In 2001, after winning four championships with four different promoters in one season, MacCachren was named "Driver Of The Year" by the American Auto Writers and Broadcasters Association. "I'm flattered to have a bounty placed on me, it's a challenge" MacCachren said, there's obviously a lot of people who are going to be out there trying to beat me, and that's a good thing. At the same time, I want to win." A total of $16,500 will be paid out to the top five places in the 1/2-1600 class. The prize money is contingent on 20 or more vehicles entering the race in that class. The race, sponsored by the Henderson Convention and Visitors Bureau and the city of Boulder City will take place in the Eldorado Valley, located between Henderson and Boulder City. There will be two race courses, one for motorcycles and A TV's and one for cars and trucks, running in a figure 8 style.

When all the dust had cleared it was Johnny Greaves taking home the win and the big bucks. Johnny drove his Toyota Tundra 4WD into a $34,935 jackpot of cash and prizes. This was his first win in the Shootout and he had nothing but praise for his powerful and great handling Toyota truck and for the condition of the Crandon Raceway course. Curt LeDuc came in second in his Skyjacker Ford, the monetary reward being a lot less than the winner. Scott Taylor came in third, Evan Evans came in fourth, Steve McCrossan was fifth, Mike Oberg was the sixth finisher, Jason Baldwin was seventh and Steve Barlow was the eighth and final finisher. The BorgWarner Shootout is a big dollar addition to the Annual Labor Day event at Crandon Raceway, usually attended by thousands of spectators.

The event started at 7 a.m., ead1 lap covered 38 miles. Races for individual classes ranging from three laps to five laps. MOR rules that pits needed to be 100 feet away from the race course for safety purposes. Infom1ing the race teams about it was another activity that kept MORbusy. The smoking hot lap of the day was recorded by driver of record, Kory Halo-poff in the Harley Letner truck. His first lap time was 37 minutes and 35 seconds. This black truck is one of a kind vehicle in more ways than one. For example, it uses independent rear suspension. But being unique is no protection from the bagaries of desert racing. A broken spindle at a high rate of speed put the m1ck out of the race afrer the first lap. The Penmansky brothers, Ollie and Ivan, who, after spending a long tin1e parked, brought out their old 8 truck and took both the class win as well as the overall win by a slin1 54 seconds. Ivan drove the whole race and reported a down time of 15 minutes for a fuel prob-lem. Ollie was suffering from the flu, so Craig Johnson did the co-driving duties.

The winner wasJenniferClemison,drivingafourseat Jann, Playtek sand-rail buggy, powered by a Vorce V6 motor. Jennifer reported a "flawless day". On the last lap she and Greg Crew battled it out to the finish. She said the support from her family, husband Tony, and son Nick, alongwith Playtek made it possible for her to race. A little over a minute later after Clenlinson's finish, Greg Crew and Leon-ard Perez took second in an older two seat Raceco buggy. A flat tire on the sec-ond lap slowed them down. The car also has a small fuel tank, so on the second lap they ran out of fuel and coasted to the pit TI1e amber light seemed to be the only carnage on the car. The lightwas zip-tied and taped on the car. The Lucas Oil team was happywith the finish. Driving a Chenowth Mini-mag, Christopher Parr broke a rear shock. Since he did not have a rear spare, he in1provised using a front shock rigged up in the rear. It worked, and he took tllird. Bringing home a fourth place finish was Evan Dixon in his single seat buggy. Fifth was Terry Ingold in his older two seatbuggy. The two Jeep,peed classes, Pro and Stock, had a good turn out. The Pro class was required to run four lap,. Post-tech took place after the race. Wheel traveL engine displacement and the valve covers were taken off to in-sure equal trucks for each class. Out came a High Life jack to jack up the Jeep. Art Savada was under the first Jeep with a tape measure. In tech, we worried it would come off the jack, since the truck looked unstable. A modified bottle jack was brought out and used to lift the rest of the Jeepspeeds in order to check wheel travel. Berrie Thompson was in the lead by a couple of minutes along with the lead for points until he was disquali-fied by MOR. The race officials said Berrie twice slid through the start/fin-ish line instead of coming to a com-plete stop as the safety rules require. The tllird time he did this, he was black flagged and stopped for a two second penalty. Berrie, upset reportedly re-sponded with an angry two word phrase. MOR officials called that" abu-sive language" and Berrie was DQ'd. Charlie Peltzer won the class with co-driver Kevin Reardon. They re-ported having no problems and were thrilled with the win.

Jonathan Gymer drove with Mike Bledsoe in the right seat. On the first lap the steering box broke along with the front of the frame. The driver stopped in Main Pit, the team told him "It will make it to the finish line." So off they went for the three laps without realizing just how much damage was done. Taking the finish in first place, the team was happy to have completed the trip. The blue Jeep driven by Bill Frey with co-driver Matty Berron suffered a broken stabilizer bar, making it tough to steer. They did manage to get the Jeep to the finish line for second place. When they got out of the Jeep, they realized they had lost their spare tire somewhere on the course. Ex-9 class driver, Tim Hayosh came in third. Away from racing for 13 years, George "Giti" Gowland made the de-cision (with his wife's support), to come back to off road racing. This was his first race with co-driver, Jeff Zimmemian. But the race was not with-out problems: two flat tires, a broken dampener, and electrical problems with their Parker Pumper. Their car's front end also had to have a weld in the pit, and that put the team down on tin1e. Despite that, the team completed all the laps for a fifth place finish. Giti also raised over $1,000 for the Ameri-can Diabetes Association. Giti, said "The money is raised from supporters on laps completed, finishing, place fin-ished." Why he raises funds to fight diabetes is easy to understand. Girl lost his former co-driver and best friend to the disease. Giti plans on continuing and hopes for better results next time out. Three Class 11 VW Bugs ran the required three laps, and all three fin-ished. Robert Henderson won the class, bringing his red, white and blue car to the finish line with only one flat tire. Second place went to Travis McGee's VW Bug that was bone stock down to the stock steering wheel. McGee drove the distance with a surfboard strapped to the roof. (Maybe he was heading off to the beach after the race.) Rounding out the class and finishing close to an hour later in third was Leif Christensen. The growing category of street legal pre-runner trucks is broken down into two classes. The only requirement for the classes is the truck at one point had to be street legal, not allowing for tube chassis trucks. The Pro class is open, and the Sportsman (1450) is limited. Class 1450 had 19 starters. The red Solo Motor-sports Ranger driven by Bob Quarnstrom with co-driver Scott Bracci reported, "No problems and thanks to the crew for all their hard work." The team was thrilled with their first place finish.

In non works Peugoets, Henning Solberg had a rear wheel bearing failure on his 206WRC but kept 10th place, while seventh placed Carlsson had both Gardemeister and Duval within 10 seconds of him.

The team meanwhile had repaired Sebastian Llndhohn's car, ma.inly just bent body panels, because they desper-ately needed more real-life test mileage with the five speed gearbox, and under the FIA rule new this year, private testing in August is banned. Otherwise itwas a day when enthusiasts held their breath for Gronhohn and Peugeot. Janne Tuohino found it hard to match the pace of the Citroens and settled for fifth place, his sixth successive finish in the championship points. Francois Duval got ahead of Toni Gardemeister. Carlos Sainz finished the final stage, 31 seconds in front of Sebastien Loeb. In the battle between the non-works driv-ers, Daniel Carlsson finished 40 seconds in front of his Peugeot teammate. Jani Paasonen was all smiles, "I knew it would be alright. I am a Tommi fan. Fourteen years ago Tommi won Group N here. Four years ago I did the same. Ten years ago he scored his first World Rally vic-tory. I did not do that, but I beat my teammates. And at all times, we were ex-actly the same age!" Behind the world championship drivers came the SupeRally cowboys, unnecessarily tear-ing up the tracks before the JWRC cars and the privateers could pass, making a confusion of the results. In JWRC Luca Betti not restart. The team opened up the engine which had been damaged by overheating and found it was too badly damaged to carry on, but the battle for the lead was in-tense. For nearly a day the gap between Per-Gunnar Andersson and Kosti Katajamaki was less than five seconds. Nicolas Bernardi was trying hard to catch Unno Aava, losing time when he spun and with two stages to go their gap was 13 seconds in the Suzuki driver's favour, then with one stage to go he got into fourth place, then on the final stage of tl1e rally he passed Marco Baldacci into third place.

Satur-for the June 20th, Father's Day week- freshly cut field they have come to day the 19th provided some great entertainment for the racers as they were treated to a day of Bull riding, Barrel racing, and roping, while the cowboys familiarized themselves with a new bread of bucking broncos in the KORRBC pits. While the Rodeo continued on Sunday, the spectator focus was definitely on the speed and non stop action on the Off Road Track. My entertainment started early on Sul)day morning as the trip down Westsyde Road found a small car following John Tordoff's race truck rather erratically. The car turned out to be driven by JTs wife, and her driv-ing inconsistencies were intentional and well founded as I found out a little further down the road. All the swerving and unusual hand gestures were suddenly blurred through a light fog that smelled somewhat like burn-ing rubber, OK exactly like burning rubber, so I started my own dance from curb to curb to get a better look at what was happening in front of us. Sure enough JT had a tire start-ing to shred itself and apparently there wasn't much drag on the trailer from the bad tire to warn him of the potential disaster. I imagine the ste-reo was also pounding out some major decibels, which would explain why he never heard the chirping horn behind him as JT owns one of the top stereo shops in Kamloops. For these reasons we'll let him off the hook for not hearing anything, but I hope he'll start checking his mirrors a little more frequently from now on. Once I could see the tire's condi-tion, which had begun flying apart by now, I decided to use my F150's bright red colour, flashing lights, and real horn to get his attention before his truck experienced its first roll-over of the season, without the driver. After we got everyone pulled over we found that the trailer was short a spare and JT would have to finish the drive on three tires, while praying the sparks from the steel rim wouldn't start another fire in the dry grass. The memories of the 2003 fires through-out the Thompson Valley are still fresh and none of us want to be re-sponsible for a repeat. Back at the track Bob Nyeste and Craig Humphries were finishing up tech just as JT arrived. Tony Caputo held a brief drivers' meeting and the two lap practice began on schedule for the growing number of specta-tors who continue to show their sup-port for this exciting forn1 of motor sports. Bob Nyeste dropped the green flag shortly after 12 noon to start four hours of the most entertaining motor sports action in western Canada with the Sportsman Buggies hitting the track first. Ken Ewart had some company in the Limited class buggies during this event as he wel-comed Al Wesnoski, a converted mud hogger, to the track. Al decided he enjoyed this new form of racing so much that he pur-chased Brendan Chamberlin's old Sportsman buggy so he could kick it up a notch for the September 12th event, so the Sportsman buggies bet-ter be ready for him. I believe Ken will continue to have some competi-tion in the Limited class as Al's car has been sold again to a friend who wants in now. Craig Humphries, one of the tech guys has also purchased a Limited car, which used to belong to Kim Easterbrook. Word is that Craig's intentions are to resurrect the full bodied bug for his daughter. There you go ladies, we've been hear-ing the whispers for a couple of years Clark Woolford at the feed lot, he extricated himself and went on to Grant Baylis chums up the track as he heads for a nice win in the Pro Steve Edgar gets nicely airborne in the Sportsman Truck clash, he take first place in the Sportsman Buggy contest.

Always looking for a good spot to catch the action I decided to hide behind some buried tractor tires at the south end of the track. The loca-tion was proving to be ideal as I man-aged to catch Troy Daum in car #20 rolling over at the first race of his career, but I chose to move soon af-ter. Only a few laps after Troy's roll-over I felt the ground at my feet move quite violently, followed by a sudden gust of wind. As I reluctantly looked up in the direction of the wind I saw the cause, Clark was sitting there as large as life as he spun out in the cor-ner and drove full force into my safety guard. TI1e yellow single seater stopped abruptly as he nailed the tractor tire, which made for a unique photo op-portunity once I got my fingers work-ing again. I would like to take this moment to thank Bill Pearse and Mike Bebek for doing such a great job on planting the tires that protect us around the track. Tim Clark made up for his ab-sence during the May 16th event, by pulling off a second place finish for the day and collecting 31 points for his season points total. Murray Allison finally got his car running flawlessly for a third place finish on the day and 29 points for a total of 36 on the season, just behind Clark Woolford with 39 points in second place. · Bill Hart continues to run hard as he maintains the season points lead with a total of 45 points to his name as of the summer break. Ron Hart, Brian McLaughlin and Rod Marsolais currently round out the association membership in the Sportsman field, but they continue to find new cars at every event and we suspect they will continu~ to have more company in September and October. June 20th was a successful event for just about everyone in the Sports-man Truck class except for Chris Turner as he managed to keep his new box attached, but lost his motor early in the day. Peter Friedel worked sorile of the May 16th bugs out of his new Ranger so he could lay down some reasonable lap times and get the feel of his new suspension com-ponents, while adding ten points to his season total right behind Wes Yeomans. JT arrived safely at the track and overcame his earlier fuel problems for a third place finish on the day and 19 points for his season to date. Wes Yeomans brought his little blue Bronco back to Kamloops to wow the crowd, and wow them he did.

Craig Byers didn't get on the podium this race but he did win the award for the highest flying Pro Truck. Roger Mercier literally leaps onto the table top at Whispering Pines, alas, Roger didn't have the best of days in Pro Truck. Shane Bourel didn't let the broken right wing slow him too much, he is third in points in Pro Buggy. watch the battle between Steve and Shane for first place followed by an even larger battle between everyone else for third. Grant Baylis has positioned him-self well in front of the Pro Buggy pack as his car performed flawlessly on June 20th as he collected another 24 points for a total of 41 points on the season. Chris Boutcher has acquired 29 points on the season, Shane Bourel is right behind Chris with 28 points and Scott Peterson has 22 points, creating a great three way fight for second. With a spread of only seven points separating sec-ond place from fifth place we can expect to see some of the most in-tense racing we've seen this fall, but Grant is well aware that the gap be-tween him and the rest of the pack could be closed dramatically if he were to have any trouble before the end of the season.

Second in Open 4WD were the team of Vartan Samuelian and M. Harders, in their Subaru WRX, pushing as hard as they could to make up time they lost in the early stages. They finished three and a half minutes behind despite finishing in the top three on SS4 and SS6. Third went to Gary Rea and Alan Perry in their Mazda 323 GTIC, they came in 11th place followed by Bob Pendergrass and Jon Weigley in their Chevy Blazer. Others in class were Randy Dowell and Scott Rader, their day ended early with turbo failure. Nick Korpal and navigator Eric Schleicher's day ended quickly when their Lancer Evo had a ter-rible off after only a quarter mile of SSL Both were okay, they ex-ited the totaled car by climbing out of the rear window. It was Brian Scott and David Hackett in their Group 2/Open 2 Ford Focus SVT who finished sec-ond overall, first in class who nearly won outright when a scoring snafu at the beginning of SS5 would have put the leaders down six minutes (Kosmides/Dillon) but Steward Pat McMahon rescinded the penalty thus allowing the results to stay the same. Brian jumped to a 30 second lead on SS 1 and the rest of the field pretty much played follow the leader the rest of the day. Second place went to Dean Burnett and Guido Hamacher in their Toyota Corolla, they would finish second on all stages but SS4 still they ended nine minutes behind. Third went to an eighth seeded driver by the name of Clive Skilton who I'm told is drag racer from the U.K. and raced in SCORE in the 80's and 90's. He teamed with Rex Lair in their Jeep Cherokee to finish first in SCCA Group 5, 14th overall. Fourth place went to Scott Harvey and Bob Gough in their Porsche 911 while John Hsu and James Hill, VW Beetle, came in fifth giving it their best on SS5 and 6 finishing third on both stages. Sixth went to Jon Rood and Jen Tully in his Ford Festiva. Jamie Thomas and Matt Gauger making the long tow from Wash-ington, picked up valuable WSRC points by taking the CRS POT class win in her Subaru WRX, they fin-ished fourth overall running in or near the top five. The only adver-sity to a near perfect day was some overheating after SS2, and their gearbox just couldn't give them what they needed -either first was Brian Scott and David Hackett were second overall, first Group 2, first Open CRS 2wd in their Ford Focus.

It would be unfair to write only about the Performance Stock teams without mentioning the best rally of the day in Production. A true club rally with sportsmanship (helping one another push starting), good competition (12 hundredths of a second margin of victory- how much better can it get?) and loads of FUN. After the first three stages the mar-gin was only six hundredths berween Patrick Rodi and Jon Schiller and the Taylors, Michael and Steven, and that was after 50 minutes. Patrick picked up four more hundredths on SS4 making their margin 10 hun-dredths. SSS was the most memo-rable for Rodi because as he told it, "Our car suffered driver error as I executed a 90 degree left turn, even though Jonathan (co-driver) called a 90 right. Fortunately there was some run-off and after a five point turn we got going again. On the short transit between SSS and SS6 we learned that we both set the same time over a 26+ minute stage!"

FALKEN TIRE PIKE'S PEAK HILLCLIMB weather Peaks -Unser & Dallenbach ··overall Cha111pions·· By Tony Tellier Photos: Peak Moments Photo The big winner in SCCA Pro Rally Open Class was Leon Styles, he beat all the competition up the hill in his great looking Mitsubishi. tus to Paul Dallenbach and irascible Robby "It's My Mountain" Unser. Race Director Phil Layton an-Page 24 nounced that Unser and Dallenbach would share the title of"Co-Overall Champions of the 2004 Falken Tire Pike's Peak International Hill Climb." Normally only one driver earns the title of "Overall" ... the "champion-October 2004 Clint Vahsholtz, in reverse lock, throws lots of dirt on his way to the win in the Super Stock class in his Ford. Stig Blomqvist was the big winner in the Unlimited Class at the peak, seen here speeding up the hill in his Ford. ship" is obtained by running the fast-est time (obviously) of all racers, in all divisions, up the mountain to the top. Weather and tech "issues" at "The Hill" made determining an overall winner difficult. Unser's "Pike's Peak" Open Division was one of only three car classes that ran the full course to the summit, beginning at 1000 Sat-urday morning. "An afternoon light-ning storm dropped snow, rain, and hail, which made it 'too' (all things are relative) unsafe for the full course. (Race Control said that at the top that they couldn't see past the hood of their truck due to clouds= "high" fog.) After the noon break, the remain-ing classes, including Dallenbach's "Open Wheel" division, only ran the halflength qualification course, from the start line to Glen Cove. Layton originally said after the race that the "Overall" would be awarded to the driver who had the fastest time to Glen Cove, since that was the only part that all drivers drove. Unser ran that distance in 4:27:80, compared to Dallenbach's 5:06:23. However, problems with the scoring system made Unser's· time appear unsound. "Basically, I wasn't convinced by my Director of Timing that the times for the first group were accurate, due to an equipment malfunction," Layton said. (All vehicles had a scor-ing transponder installed.) "We had problems with (unspecified) equip-ment at Glen Cove, so we went to the backup system, which is hand-held timers. But rather than having sev-eral people with 'hand-helds', we only had one. I wasn't going to base a criti-cal decisiQn, like this championship, on one individual's ability to start and stop a 'watch' (accurately, pre-cisely and consistently). This was my decision and I'll take whatever grief comes from this," Layton averred. Unser believed, however, his time was accurate. "I had a great car, I had a fast run," Unser said. "They're not sure about the time on the bot-tom, so I can understand that. I know what I did in my heart." (Note: It rained/ snowed every af-ternoon for four days prior to the "Run To The Clouds" so track con-ditions should not have been any big surprise! We drove to the summit Wednesday and it was sloppy. Same for the following days, though.) With most people plugged in and listening raptly, Unser said to us all that he was "pissed off. This is un-safe. I almost went off five, or six, time; and I'm good up here!" (I know, I'm an 'Unser!) The FCC must have taken that Saturday off; otherwise this could have ruined it for everybody. The in-terviewer did nothing to stop the rants and the raves; in fact, he egged Robby on! "This is f"*ckin' danger-ous ... " Robby continued, getting into full swing. Listeners hooted and high-fived! And more: "It was a stupid deci-sion. There needs to be an option (for weather). "I'm not gonna be 'Mister Nice Guy' (!) and keep my mouth shut!" (!!!, Unser said. Then started again: "I'm not gonna like it; I'm not gonna say anything good about it. I'm pissed off and I cannot believe ... " trails off). "1240" then, wisely, got Race Honcho Layton on the air and he told 'em how the hog ate the cab-bage. "We had a breakfast drivers' meeting and (Unser) didn't mention it there. When he brought up the issue, two cars had already left the line on ("rule" tires. You can't very well allow a change, like that, mid-event.)" Layton read the rule over the air and said, "It's the rule. It's always been that way,." The rule book states that a car must have the same make, model, and size tire during the race as it had dur-ing qualifying. Unser qualified with a tire made for a dry road. He reported to the start line with mud tires and officials made him change to the same tires he used for qualification. Now, if EVERYONE had agreed, before hand, then we would have consid-Dusty Times

ternoon ... but you gotta ride what-ever you get!" It did rain. Emphysema Note: The nominal atmospheric pressure at 14,000 feet is 8.6 psia; 59% of sea level pressure (which pushes the air into the engine). You could expect a reduction in power at around that level. "Boost" is, therefore, terrific. The turbo-charged SCCA Rally cars screeched their waste gates with grace and ease. EXHIBITIONISTS Big Rig's have their own class at the Peak, Mike Ryan drove his baby up the hill in the quickest time and won the class. The Mini Sprint Class win went to Todd Cook, seen here at speed in his lethal looking machine, note the July snow. Often the "Exhibition" class is composed of electric or hybrid test vehicles. Race Control chatter re-marked that they really needed a "heads-up" on the "Ex" cars since "We can't hear them coming." This year that was not an issue; the first car off was the kit Cobra of Randy Schranz ... which was one of the loudest of cars. The normally-aspirated 410 old Chev really bellowed through the canyons. He's running a sprinter-style quick-ered it." The most-very-best part of all this was the fact that ALL competitors, other than Unser, raved about how good the course was! "Obviously, I got heated and I shouldn't have done that, so that's 'my bad\" a pseudo-contrite, dam-age-controlling Unser was quoted later. "Also, I should have had some help separating me from the press, so that's 'their bad'," Unserdivertingly added. "At the end of the day, I'm 'OK' with Phil's decisions, most of the time, when it's all settled down. You've got to understand, I'm passionate about running up here. I have a lot of my heart in it. Sometimes I get a little bit (!) excited," Unser CYA-ed. For Unser's outburst, Layton fined Gunnar Heuberger, owner of Heuberger Motors and an autho-rized agent of Unser, $2,500. Dallenbach thought the decision on Co-Champions was fair. "It's what they had to do," Paul said. "What else can you do? Robby? I talked to him and I think he seems to be 'OK' with it. I think it worked out for ev-erybody." Dallenbach's car sprouts more wings than an F-16 squadron. THE COURSE The 12.42 mile course might be described in one word: "Intimidat-ing." Or two. "Frightening." Or even three! "Challenging." "There are 156 turns, I know 50," said Pro 500 rider Dana Perri. The first 2.25 miles are paved two-lane; the rest is groomed, packed dirt ... admittedly wide but "The toad gets skinny at a hundred!" said CR500 rider Darryl Lujam. "Pike's Peak" is the second oldest au-tomobile "race" in the US; the "Indy 500" is the eldest. The highway is leased by the Pike's Peak Auto Hill Climb Educational Museum from the City of Colorado Springs and operates under a special use permit from the United States Forest Ser-vice. "The (ever-increasing) pavement has been an issue that has been con-troversial all along," Leonard Vahsholtz said. "But I always look at the course as being the same for ev-eryone." The race starts at 9,390 feet and ends at 14,110. The "tree line" be-gins/ends at 11,000, so, from then on, you can easily see the precipitous switchbacks. Hell, you can't avoid see-ing them; like a horrendous highway accident: you just gotta look. Drop a car off there and it would roll all the way to Scottsdale! In the pines, you might convince yourself that they would catch you. Three years ago "Super Stock" driver Chandler Bruning went off early and was killed by an intruding tree branch. Dana Perri $54, Woods-Rotax, raved about the course condition af-ter the previous day's late afternoon rain: "It was in great condition! Lots of drive." Darryl Lujan #69, agreed: "The (CRS00) worked good but a two stroke lacks a little (at altitude). I hope it rains like that again this af-Continued on page 26 Leonard Vasholtz won all the marbles in the Super Truck and SUV Division, seen here on the way to victory in his low slung Ford. f ,'".

Randy told me: "The (mix-ture) is self-adjusting, which is great for the (large) altitude change here. It puts out about 358 horses at the 'Start' altitude. And fueling is simple," he laughed. The other Exhibition entry was none other than the unceasingly self-promoted Jesse James of "West Coast Choppers" and TV's "Monster Ga-rage." Driving the #69 (Heh, heh) su-percharged, on-the-deck Blazer was not to prove as simple as he had ear-lier boasted. "I'll flat-foot iJ: all the way," he was reportedly to have said. James then supposedly viewed an in-car tour of the course from one of the Vahsholtz cars. He did NOT "flat-foot" it, of course -although his time of 15:05: 15 was good enough to beat the Vintage motorcycles, i.e., Triumph vertical twins. "l bought this car off of some dude in Long Beach for 3,500 bucks and 'we' (with input from Larry Ragland and Rhys Millen) built it in fiue days," James said. "I bogged down a little bit in the altitude, but it still ran pretty good." SCCA The SCCA Rally Program, under the close direction of Sue Robinson (Sue used to write the "California Rally Series" column for Dusty Times before moving to Topeka, KS, where the SCCA headquarters reside), had a five-stage rally in concert with The Hill Climb. On Thursday, they ran Stage 1 from the Start to Glen Voce, while the bikes practiced from three up to the top. Stage 2 was a freaky night section followed in the AM by Stage 3: Glen Cover to the Summit. Stage 4 on Saturday was the formal "Race To The Clouds", to be followed by Stage 5 which was cancelled due to the conditions. A number of the SCCA cars were truly only interested in the Hill Climb, or, at least, that was a major impor-tance (as opposed to series points.) 1.

Parts and parcels littered the comers ... his extreme stunt was then repeated by the local "Flatiron" team of Tan-ner Foust. (Note: As opposeq to some often-maligned racing dilettantes, Pastrana has been well received by the Pro Rally ranks, fast and he delivers with, for example, a fourth OA, third "Open" at the Lancaster (CA) "Rim of the World" rally in May. That was Pastrana' s second gravel rally and "con-sidered one of America's most diffi-cult rally." Doug Navir: "Travis is un-afraid, he knows how to be sideways ... he does well.") Travis Pastrana drives Lance Smith's "Vermont SportsCar" WRX STi. "Travis has done well, this will be his third SCCA event, including Lancaster and Laughlin, NV (aka Peach Springs, AZ)." VSC ran Travis through a one-on-one "schooling ses-sion" with '02/'03 ProRally champ David Higgins. Travis did so well that VSC got him into a competitive car ASAP! The second stage was held Friday at 0300 ("o'dark thirty") -the early morning hour meant complete dark_.. ness, damp roads, and patchy fog. Travis and his co-driver Michael Fen-nell nearly had a clean run but, with less than a mile to the finish, Travis carried too much speed into a tight hairpin. His car left the road, smacked a large ditch, and rolled, eventually landing on its wheels. Pastrana and Fennell were OK but their Subaru suffered heavy damage. Vermont SportsCar feverishly repaired the damaged Subaru in order for Pastrana to compete in the full climb the following morning. Although sporting some battle scars, the car was repaired and ready to run Saturday morning. Pastrana decided to play it safe, drive conserva-tively, and make it to the summit. "We took no chances really, I know we could have gone much faster but I re-ally wanted to make it to the top. It was an absolute blast," explained Pastrana. Pastrana's conservative drive was still good enough for sixth place in the SCCA ProRally Open class for the "Run To The Clouds". JeffZwart's MitsubishVLancer Evo-lution had the cage done by New Zealand's RalliArt. The second place 05 car is actually a "daily-driver" ... "I pull the numbers for the oops' ben-efit." Zwart, a Pike's Peak regular who was a big name in rally Porsches, said, "New cars are so easy to drive. Cars are produced now that are built like old rally cars!" Brit John Lloyd was running in a 2000 Hyundai Tiburon prepared by legendary driver John Buffum's Libra Racing. "I hung it over the edges with a three thousand foot drop. Ah, the joy of four wheel drive!" Lloyd was second in the "Climb" to the OA SCCA rally car of Leon Styles and John Dillon by 21. 7 seconds, in a 1000 Mitsubishi. Jon Hamilton's VW GolfTDI die-sel ran on soy fuel. Still looked slow, but healthy. He had to pass two cars on the course and missed breaking Guy Light's Production car record by only seven seconds. The big dogs, like Paul Shepherd, Paul Choiniere, and Patrick Richards would run into sweeper courses full throttle then set it up with the brakes. Impressive. Doug Navir and Scott Putnam were caught on (digital} film with oil fire flames corning out of the Subaru's hood scoop. The (foam) fire bottle worked as planned-even inside, coat-ing the windscreen and reducing vi-sion to zippo. Owner/Operator Doug is "the guy" who developed security for on-line Vi$a purchase$. I gave him an MOD: "I like my beer cold. .. and lots of it!" Rather than take a close look at the back of a "Randy's Towing" flatbed, Doug and Scott coasted for a while then hitched up to the car for teammates Al Kintigh and co-driver Heidi Martin. SCCA TECH TALK Group N rally cars like to be WRX STi Subarus. Tum-key insanity! Doug's 2.34L flat Subaru was fit-ted with the prescribed 40mm diam-eter inlet restrictor plate (over a stock-55mm holes: that's only half the stock open area! Choke!). Power transmis-sion is through a Prodrive differential that "has to be" programmed by Prodrive technicians ("Unless you know computers ... "Not by me, of course!" Heh, heh.)

"Mine is set so that over 25% PlA is at 'full lock'. I can set it up, pitch it into the comer at 65% rear drive, pin it, and drive out of the cor-ner in all-wheel-drive." 3. The engine uses Sunoco 104 oc-tane racing fuel with 20% methanol. 4. "I'm only here for The Hill!" "We buy the body'in white' -then add a Prodrive cage. In race trim it weighs 2,850 pounds.

The initial outing, in 1916, was won in 20:55.6, not too shabby. Probably wore a cloth cap with ear flaps, a taste-ful necktie, and had no cage, right? ROUTE CHARTS The SCCA has Arne Johannson, a clever fellow, who runs the course in a vehicle equipped with a three axes accelerometer, linked to speed and map position, and records the course. A clever algorithm then computes route notes based upon "g" level of cums, dips, and "yumps". Doug Robinson (SCCA Rally Tech Director): "The program accounts for rate-of-change and, therefore, the recon tour does not have to be run at any specific or constant speed." "Jemba Inertia Notes System is the most advanced system available. It gives a consistent set of notes from a fully inertia-based system. The operator collects data about the stage by driv-ing at normal speed. A laptop com-puter creates the notes automatically according to an individual setup." He massages the route info then runs it another time until satisfied ... then sells the sheets for $150. SCCA: "Use of these descriptive Stage Notes is not mandatory. A complete regular route book will be provided to all com-petitors." An example was explained (Note: The hairiest tum is a " 1 ", the easiest is a "6". See jemba/ notesCan.htm): 1.

Baja Pits is a nonprofit organi-...• fW pJt/lS By Ann Donaldson Do you remember the Fireworks 250 race in Barstow? How about when it was called the Firecracker 1,50? Back when Walker Evans or Ivan Stewart had huge chase crews and pits set up across the desert. You could not turn a corner with-out seeing the matched painted trucks and well marked pits. I know I miss that race even in the summer heat in July. The now long gone Fire-works race was a night race this year, MORE held their night race this past July 24 in Barstow. The CORE pit club tried to match the past race support with the amount of pits set up along with rovers. CORE even added a pit in an area that was felt it may be needed. Pit "E" was added for the reason of safety. No one wants to be stuck in the heat without help and like any of the clubs out there, CORE will try to help you if you pull in. At this race, motor prob-lems seemed to be the main issue. Out of nine cars, only two com-pleted the required laps, and one Bug was timed out. The CORE club had a total of nine cars to pit for. The cars in-cluded just about all the classes from Class 1 to Sportsman. Motor problems seemed the reason many in the CORE club called it a day. In the Main pit we watched Jimmy Messing cartwheel his 1600 car. It happened in the roller section af-ter the start/finish line. Jimmy was taken to the hospital and we hope he is feeling fine. Todd Jergenson (#1560) driving his single seat Mike Smith built Class 1 car. It looked good at the start. Soon after the flag waved, he started to overheat. Todd made the decision to make a second lap, but not at speed and to help the many other racers he saw out there. Todd helped rolled Paul Smith's car back on its wheels. The team ofWayn!! Nosala and Tim Baker ( # 1064) in the single seat Class 10 car started the race first in Class 10. The car was running fine but soon started to overheat. The motor leaned out and fouled the plugs. Without wanting to do fur-ther damage to the motor, and two hours down on time, Wayne parked the car. Also in Class 10 was Steve McMullin (# 1022) who brought out his home-built car. He also had motor troubles. After one lap, Steve put the car on the trailer. Out of the four 1/2-1600 cars that CORE was to pit for, only one was able to make it to the finish line. Bryon Ziegler (#1609) was late getting his car to the starting line and started behind Inch. Bryon fin-ished in sixth place but not with-out troubles. He had three flat tires to change that caused down time. Along with the clutch cylinder was acting up. The problems resulted in lost time, but Ziegler and his team were not unhappy. Brad Inch (#1637) has made nu-merous trips to the desert to get the shocks on his single seat to work the way he wants. With the help of Mike Malloy, they managed to get the shocks dialed in the way that worked best for the car. Brad started third in a large class of 1/2-1600 cars. Brad went about seven miles and blew his motor. Once back at the Main pit, Brad helped out with the crew there. Don Johnson (#1698) also blew his mo-tor and was unable to complete a lap. Timothy Graig (# 1616) was making good time but was only able to complete before his motor gave up. The blue 5-1600 (#575) driven by Patrick Oliver and Mark Naugle (of the Locos-Mocos Pit Club) in the right seat, drove about six miles before the battery mount broke. The wires grounded on the cage, bringing the car to a halt. The sec-ond lap the same things happened. Any racer's best friend is zip ties (next to duct tape), they were used to re-mount the battery. After com-pleting the second lap Joe Oliver and Rob Dutcher got in. On Lap 4, they stopped and helped roll over a Class 9 car. This was the last CORE car running. After it was fig-ured out that if the car tried for another lap, the time limit would October 2004 run out. Rich Clark (# 1355) brought out his car to run in the Sports-man class. He was one of the lucky few who had a trouble free race. He finished in third, less than a second behind the second place finisher. Rich has been consistent and had brought the car to the finish line in the past two races. MAIN: Wayne Nosala and his brother, Bob, drove to Barstow Thursday before the race. The two roped off a large area for the Main pit, knowing there would be quite a few people CORE would pit for and would need the acre-age. Bob DePue towed the CORE trailer out. His better half, Allison Chase ran the radio to her usual high standard. Main pit was a maze of motor homes and trail-ers. The pit was highly visible in the day or night. The crew kept busy by watching the race. The hardest thing they had to perform was taking the light covers off of car #1355. CORE skipped setting up Pit A and set up Pit B through E in-stead. All the pits were well lit and well stocked with tires and tools. PIT B: Tim Lindsey with his wife. INNER HODGE: Johnny Burns and Larry Altolf ran this pit on the plateau. They reported a day of watching the race and having a good time.) PITC: David Girdner along with his grandfather made up three gen-erations of off road racing, there-fore the BG Racing name for the family effort. PITD: Long time CORE member Gary Hall along with Jeremy Eck set up this pit. PIT E: Thom Singer, Matt Goodyear along with Travis Bergluno, Jason (Purple) Trombly, Robert Romo and Collyn Berling set up this pit. When Wayne Nosala was having motor problems, this crew was ready to tear down either one of their two sand rails to help Wayne keep going. Jason reported that they had a "blast". Thom Singer said "For their first time to pit they did an excellent job and were ready to tackle any job." The CORE Pit Club will be at the next MORE event in Lucerne Valley, September 18th. If you have any questions please e-mail Wayne Nosala at or call him at (818) 703-1971. The CORE club is always looking for a few good people. __ .• .., ■■■■■■■■ --ORBA/NEVADA BLM An important meeting took place on July 21, 2004 between representatives from the Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) recre-ation community and key mem-bers of the Nevada State Bureau of Land Management (BLM) staff at the BLM offices in Reno, Ne-vada. During a recent National Rec-reation Forum in Las Vegas; Na-tional BLM Director Kathleen Clarke stated that the BLM can no longer provide the resources necessary to manage BLM recre-ation areas on it's own. She indi-cated that the agency will be rely-ing on partnerships with recre-ation groups and gateway com-munities that can provide volun-teer support to help with land planning and land management efforts. With that goal in mind, Roy Denner, President and CEO of ORBA met with Bob Abbey, 'Ne-vada State BL director, to offer the support of the OHV recre-ation community to help with the huge task underway to develope land management plans for the state of Nevada. Abbey invoted Denner to bring a few off road leaders to the Nevada BLM's quarterly state leadership team meeting. Abbey stated that, "with 48 million acres of BLM land in the state of Nevada, we need all of the help we can get to make sure that recreation interests are adequately considered in the BLM's new plans being developed for Nevada. Assisting Benner with the OHV presentation to the BLM Managers were Del Albright, rep-resenting the national BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC): Jon Crowley, past president of Friends of Sand Mountain, and Nate Littrell, president of the Pine Nut Mountain Trails Associa-tion. Albright told the managers group that "There is an army of volunteers available that the BRC can enlist to help with on-the-ground efforts such as route and trail identification and recreation area management." Growley and Littrel each gave a short history of current OHV recreation area planning efforts in Nevada that that their organizations are al-ready ivolved in. Both expressed concerns about potential large-scale closures to OHV recreation in their areas of interest. During his summary, Denner stated "The OHV recreation community understands that there will be areas in Nevada that will be excluded from OHV rec-reation to satisfy environmental concerns. Most OHV recreation families are rational environmentalists. We only ask that decisions made regarding en-vironmental concerns be based on sound, proven science. We would also ask that when neces-sary closures of public lands, based on sound science, are deemed necessary, those closures be mitigated by designating areas where OHV recreation is appro-priate to compensate for neces-sary closures." Director Abbey made it clear that "The BLM welcomes the OHV community's support as we attempt ot engage all stakehold-ers in the development of Nevada's new land management plans.It is important to the BLM that OHV opportunities are in-cluded in new management plans. Furthermore, with,the ever in-creasing interest in OHV recre-ation, we also need to provide for future needs of the OHV recre-ation community." __ .• .., Dusty Times

23RD OMV ADAC RALLEY DEUTSCHLAND Loeb/Citroen Uber Alles By Martin Holmes Photos: Maurice Selden Xavier Pons drove his Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VIII to the PCWRC win in Germany, seen here ready for takeoff. Kresta was back in a works Skoda for the first time since Britain 2002. A surprise num-ber two (nominated) driver for Peugeot was Cedric Robert. Cedric had done a lot of test driving on the 307WRC project and in 2003 entered on all the asphalt World ral-lies in a 206WRC and finished highest privateer on each. Getting a thumbs up from a spectator, Sebastien Loeb drove his Citroen Xsara to first overall in the German r;J!!y. just as for Finland, testing for Germany was carried out ear-lier in the year. An official from one of the smaller teams commented, "It's fine for the big teams who have dedicated test crews, but for smaller teams it makes things diffi-cult." While from one of the top engineers, "It is just more rules nobody needs. All these changes are taking the fun away from our work." There was a bizarre coincidence. Both Francois Duval (just be-fore Argentina) and Sebastien Loeb (just afterwards) crashed on the same stretch of road in testing in the Baumholder re-gion. Perhaps the biggest change came with the extended life experiment. Twice there were 85km between full ser-vice, once it was 104km, with facilities for quick checks in Re-mote Tyre Zones (R TZ) in be-tween. One bizarre note, whereas on the Saturday the RTZ was within the Baumholder complex, for the first time this was situated alongside the official service area itself on the Sunday. This was the fifth out of seven rounds of the 2004 PCWRC. Competitors have to enter six of these rounds: driv-ers who opted to miss this event included Top Run driv-ers Marcos Ligato and Mark Higgins, and Daniel Sola who this time was Panizzi's team-mate in an MMSP World Rally Car. A recent entry change was allowed for Nassar Al-Attiyah. He originally planned to con-test this rally but was allowed by the FIA to change his pre-season nomination and go to Corsica instead, on account of being chosen by his national Qatar to represent them in a shooting discipline in the Olympics! Among the Group N amateurs was Sandro Wallenwein making the world championship debut for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VIII MR. There was also a special Ralliart-built Group N Evo VIII for Gianluigi Gallli, fit-ted with an underfloor fuel tank. Because of the short time between Argentina and Ger-many only two cars did both events, Karamjit Singh's Pro-ton and the car which Stohl drove in Argentina driven here in Germany by Jani Paasonen. Singh's car had been brand new when he crashed at the superspecial in Argentina on the Thursday evening, and af-ter the (delayed) boat from South America docked in Antwerp the car was repaired "These were the most diffi-cult conditions I have seen here", explained the winner Sebastien Loeb. "All the time we were aquaplaning. I guess we nearly went off the road once in every two corners ... !" Three times Rall ye Deutschland winner recalled the horrendously changeable conditions which highlighted concerns about crew safety and procedures. The controversy was sparked after a series of top drivers crashed and when standard procedures were not immediately followed. Francois Duval's chance of victory was hampered by a Steward's curious decision on how to decide interruption times after an accident. This was the first asphalt rally since new controversial FIA rules were imposed limiting avail-ability of traditional pre-warn-ing systems. Loeb and Citroen meanwhile have pulled well ahead in the championships, Ford has established them-selves in second place and their driver Markko Martin has risen to second in the Drivers' se-ries. Many new things had been planned for this year's event. The eternal difficulty of decid-ing where the rally should be based continued, the cars spending the overnight halts in Bostalsee, a convenient central location in the middle of the various groups of stages, rather ERPRECISION.COM 2865 Gundry Ave. . nal Hill, CA 90755 562-427-2375 . .

The style of route itself re-verted to that used in 2002, in which stages in each of the three suitable regions were re-stricted to use on the same day. There was a new overall spon-sor, OMV and a major new spectator initiative. There was a marshals' tra1n1ng programme with 2000 officials participating. The route had been altered to provide better independent access facilities for competitors, officials and spectators. The number of in-dividual spectator points had been greatly increased, from 29 in 2002, to 88 in 2003 and now 111 this year. Germany was the first of only three clear asphalt events of the season and with it a whole new scenario. This was the first asphalt rally on which gravel note crews were banned, although, under instructions · from the FIA, the organisers had an obligation to warn crews where conditions, in their opinion, would have changed since the Reece often some days before. It was also the first asphalt rally under tyre nomination restrictions. The new rule banning all test-ing in August continued, so There was news from within the teams with 14 manufactur-ers' entries and a total of 25 World Rally Cars in all. On his home event the 41 year old Armin Schwarz celebrated his 100th world championship en-try (two litre only events ex-cepted). Skoda, however, did not think the occasion was worth celebrating, which was a pity. During his career Armin has rallied for Audi, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Ford, Skoda and H yundai, and is the 13th driver to reach this level. This event was the final world cham-pionship appearance planned this year for Mitsubishi but they had a new team manager, Marco Pastorino.

Alister McRae had a _problem with the differential. The team changed the transmission unit at service but it did not solve the prob-lem and that evening they then changed the rear differential as well. Niall McShea spun into a field on the first stage. Karamjit Singh confessed he "wasn't u·sed to all this". Ricardo Trivino did three stages with no brakes at all. In the afternoon Pons caugh·t and passed Galli, despite brake troubles, Galli had a gear se-lection problem (stuck in fourth), which let Pons ahead, but still managed to end the day only 8.3 seconds behind. Georgi Geradzhiev had over-heating brakes, as did Trivino. At the end of the day 12 of the 15 runners were still going. Leg 2 Another day, another SupeRally opportunity. The only top driver with a car fit enough to restart was Marcus Gronholm, so in this month when any testing is banned, it was good to continue. After the dramas the day before Skoda had fitted a bigger water cool-ing system for Schwarz' brakes. But the topic of the day, how-ever, was the safety of this event. Daniel Sola's accident was a warning of the perils of this rally with its unpredictable surfaces and even less predict-able weather. The ban on gravel note crews and the even longer period of time beforehand when the tyres had to be nomi-nated. But nobody could define what made the event so danger-ous. Was it the new rules or the place itself or the combination of everything? There was rain at Bostalesee when the rally re-started, but conditions on the Baumholder ranges, were not so bad, which if anything was more dangerous than full rain because it might suddenly be-come just as bad. Stage 9 was chaotic. Roman Kresta went off the road, broke two wheels and had to retire, and then Gilles Panizzi went off the road as well but this time the driver had to be taken to hospital. Happily early reports of a broken arm were exagger-ated, but for sure, both the MMSP team's WRC04's were now wrecked. Conditions wors-ened, and just after Cedric Robert started the stage the heavens opened, there was a thunderstorm and the condi-tions were terrible. Robert, "Twice I spun on the stage -and both times it was on a straight stretch of road!" Markko Mar-tin was shown an emergency alert "SOS" board at the scene of Panizzi's crash and dutifully stopped to alert the officials. The stage was halted and a va-riety of different interruption times were issued. These were a little puzzling in their effect, and as a result of a stage which was cancelled, the French driver Stephane 8-arrazin jumped up from 12th place to seventh, overtaking Mikko Hirvonen, Gardemeister and Bengue! Duval was furious. He had been busy catching Sainz when arbitrarily the Spaniard was given a time 13 seconds better -and (because of the re-verse order rule) he had not even had to drive the stage. Back to square one again. There is a passion with the FIA officials to issue results, any results, rather than admit defeat and allow a s~age to be cancelled . Going from bad to worse was Schwar'z who had turbocharger failure on Stage 12. But then came more drama. Just as Gar-demeister confessed he never knew when he could trust his tyres, came news that Petter Solberg had crashed heavily just 200 metres into Stage 12. It was a wide fast road, over a long left curve over a crest when the Subaru slid wide into one of the famous Baumholder "hinkelstein" concrete tank-trap stones and overturned. Phil Mills' side of the car took the worse of the impact, and the luckless Welshman .was taken to hospital after being trapped inside the wreckage for 20 minutes. Eventually it was Dusty Times

CALIFORNIA RALLY SERIES Gorman Ridge Rally Pierce in his purpose built Ford Ranger rally truck.Jim has had a string of great performances this year, at Rim, then Treeline and now Gonnan, where he won his class winning ten stages by nearly six minutes over the second place of Murat Okeuoglu and Burak Tuglu. Sharing the laurels of the class win was co-driver Adrian Lengsfeld. Jim best described his day as, ''A dream, real smooth, a great rally and lots of fun." Seeded 8 and finish-ing in third place was Aaron Laeng who has been in the right side seat with some of the top drivers in the club, helping Aaron this time was M. Hoche-Mong in their Toyota Celka, Englishman Clive Skilton and Rex Lair took the next spot in their Jeep Chero-kee, while Dean Burnett and Guido Hamacher took fifth and taking the final position was Jon Rood and Piers O'Hanlon, last year's CRS Rookie of the Year. As always the Performance Stock class contest exceeded the hype and expectations by crowning another new winner this year. Heavy favorites Tony Chavez and Jay Streets didn't figure in this contest, Tony again failed to finish dropping out after SS6, rotten luck this year for him while Jay Streets didn't complete more than three stages. It was a new rally for Mike Masano of Scottsdale, AZ., after SS6, with Tony out and Bill Feyling and Matt Gauger over a minute behind. With everything going his way and a comfortable cushion heading into the Del Sur tum around stages lightning struck not twice but three times, on Del Sur, we lost our steering when the Tokico strut top was ripped out and left the wheel hanging loose (resolved by some handy strapping), a motor mount broke and we couldn't see turn-ing right, our lights were knocked out, bur Linda (his wife and navigator) could see enough to give me the call, she did a great job." Good news for Bill Feyling and Matt Gauger in their Toyota P /U, taking advantage of the Masano's bad breaks, Bill took the lead on Del Sur (SS8) by a margin of 20 hundredths, he then gave it up (lead) on the following stage (Maxwell) when Masano won the SS9 by a mar-gin of over 30 seconds. It was match point for Masano when he won his fifth stage and the last of the day in his Tom Lang Motorsports prepared Toyota Corolla by a margin of over 20 hundredths. Feyling incurred a time penalty of 60 hundredths, on SS2, resulting in Mike's final margin of victory to be less than it appeared. By Scott Bottomley Photos: Motorsport Memories 1" overall, 1" in Open 4WD, George Pisek and Alex Gelsomino ran flawlessly all day in their Mitsubishi lancer Evo VII. For the CRS GT class winner Amy Bebervanzo, this rally year was sup-posed to be a season ofleaming, but taking the class win was, well, not nec-essarily planned!
