Trail Notes ... l0TI-I ANNIVERSARY BORGWARNER SHOOTOUT· Sunday, September 3rd was the date for the big, over $70,000 purse for the one monstrous race at Crandon International Raceway. The 2wd and 4wd trucks run 10 laps of the picturesque and very difficult course, measuring 1. 7 5 miles in length. The 2wd entries are handicapped and the race is usually very hard fought, everything to the firewall as there is much moolah to be earned. The big winner was Johnny Greaves, he's from DePere, WI and he took home all the marbles with his 4wd Toyota Tundra. Congrats to Johnny! Curt LeDuc was second in his 4wd Skyjacker Ford, Scott Taylor was third, he was the first 2wd finisher in his Ford, Evan Evans, Chevy 2wd was fourth, Steve McCrosson was fifth to finish in his 4wd Chevy, Mike Oberg was sixth in his 2wd Chevy, he was the first of the Sportsman 2 to finish, Jason Baldwin, 4wd Ford was seventh, Steve Barlow was the eighth finisher, Steve drives a 2wd Ford and he was the last of the 10 lap finishers. Mike Savage, in his 2wd Chevy was ninth to the checkers he got 9 laps in, 10th place went to Don Williams in his 2wd Ford, 9 laps, Gordon Zima was 11th, he too got in 9 laps in his 2wd Ford, Josh Baldwin was 12 to finish, he got in 9 laps in his 4wd Ford, Dan Badoux was 13th in his Sportsman 2wd Ford, Dan only got 4 laps under his belt, Ben Wandashega was 14th to finish, Ben too only finished 4 laps in his 2wd Chevy and the 15th finisher was Ken Hallgren, he got in three laps in his Chevy 2wd. They will all be ready for an encore presentation next Labor Day weekend at beautiful downtown Crandon, Wisconsin. See ya there! SCCA COLORADO COG PRORALLY • Leon Styles knew going into the Colorado Cog ProRally that making a comeback in the Overall Drivers Point Championship was going to be difficult, with winning Cog being step one in that direction. Thanks to turning in fast stage times on five of the final seven special stages, Styles leaped to the front of the pack and never looked back, earning the second ProRally victory of the season and of his career. The win was bittersweet for Styles and co-driver John Dillon, as they ruled the Colorado roads Sunday in Styles 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, only to see Pat Richard overcome a rapidly failing engine in Richard's WRX and clinch the championship for Pat. Peter Workum ended up in third, 12 seconds behind Richard. Veterans Doug Shepherd and co-driver Pete Gladysz pushed their Group 5 Mopar Dodge SRT-4 as hard as it would go all weekend, even taking the stage win on Special #9, they finished fourth overall and took the Group 5 win as well. Shepherd took the Woodner Cup, given to the top 2wd Driver Of The Year and the Manufacturers Championship for Dodge, this in addition to the Group 5 title he earned after the Ojibwe Forests. Behind Richard in Group N, Mark Utecht and co-driver Jeff Secor were second in their Subaru WRX and they were sixth overall as well. In Group 2, Drivers Point Champion Mark Brown, with Ole Holter in the right seat scored a top 10 finish and they won the class by 11 seconds over Freehill and Elliot. They battled all weekend, exchanged the lead many times but Brown/Holter took control for good by winning the final two stages. Though they didn't finish, the weekend was good one still for Production Class competitors Mark Tabor and Kevin Poirier as they wrapped up the Production Championship. A good show for all entered. SCORE HEAVY HITTERS AT LVMS • SCORE announced late in September that they will be racing the mighty Trophy Trucks at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, July 28-30, 2005. The SCORE Las Vegas Terribles' Cup will hold competition on a limited pavement and man-made dirt simulations of the desert terrain the Trophy Trucks usually race on. Almost 90% of the 1.5 mile track will be visible by the 8,000 expected spectators. Also competing on the same course, at a different time will be the Class l buggy's, along with a special SCORE All Star event for the top point leaders in the other 15 SCORE Pro car and truck classes. The event will offer both reserved and general admission tickets. Special packages that will include reserved seating, pit passes, etc. will be available soon and all paid admissions are eligible for the drawing for a new truck, donated by the Terrible's boys. For more information contact LVE (Las Vegas Events) 702-260-8605 or contact SCORE at 818-225-8402. Stay tuned for more info as it surfaces. CORR MANUFACT'URERS RESULTS • For the fifth season in a row Ford Motor Company will take honors as the top manufacturer in the Championship Off Road Racing Pro-4 division. For the first time since 1998, Ford won the Pro-Lite Manufacturer's Championship, ending Toyota's reign over the last five seasons. In the Pro-2 division, Chevrolet continued their streak as the top manufacturer in the division. Chevrolet is the only manufacturer to win the Pro-2 championship in the seven year history of Championship Off Road Racing. The Manufacturer's Championship points are awarded to the top finishing vehicle of each manufacturer based on its final official finishing position in each Pro Series event. The 2004 CORR Lucas Oil Series will celebrate the season at the Champion's Banquet on November 6, 2004 at the Regency Suites in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The 2004 official standings are: Pro-4 • Ford 238 points (6 Wins), Chevrolet 215 points (4 wins), Toyota 190 points (4 wins). Pro-2 • Chevrolet 258 points (9 wins), Ford 229 points (5 wins). Pro-Lite· Ford 248 points (9 wins), Toyota 210 points (4 wins), Nissan 200 points (l win). SEMA OFFROAD SHOW· SEMA, the Specialty Equipment Market Association has announced an all new off road exclusive event, February 4-5, 2005 in Indianapolis, Indiana. "This booming niche within the accessories industry represents new opportunities for established companies" said Peter McGillivray, SEMA VP, Marketing and Communications. Dusty Times is happy to see off road manufacturing being spotlighted by SEMA. We are a large part of the automotive market and growing every :,ear. Unfortunately, many of the off road manufacturers are small in status and number of employees and we certainly would have liked to see the Of/Road Show held either in Los Angeles or Las Vegas, the hub of the off road manufacturing and certain!:, the core of off road racing. Perhaps the fol!owing year SEMA will make show participation and off road attendance a bit easier to participate in and attend for the little gu:, who is spending all the bucks. 'nuf said! 35TI-I ANNUAL SNORE 250 • Great weather, a great course, lots of good competition and when it was al_! over Pat_ Dean was first overall and he rook home a whopping $12,500 tor his efforts. Congrats to Pat, his dad, Butch and all the gang. Scott Steinberger was second in the Unlimited Class and Jim Tucker was third. Charles Lathrem was the Class 10 winner and Todd Stemmerman took Class 5. Class 1600 went to, who else?, Rob Page 6 P.O Box 8286 COLORADO SPRINGS, CO 80933 (7 I 9) 65 3-8449 CORP P.O.

Linda Fern Collier passed away on September 16, 2004 at the tender age of 59. She was a staunch supporter of her son's racing effort and was a frequent pre-runner with Dave. We're sure she is in a better place, with lots of off roaders who have gone before her. Rest easy Linda, you will always have your family's love and devotion. C HILITES CHAMPIONSHIP AWARDS -Keith Steele, the 2004 Stock Division champion added the KC Hilites Championship to his victorious 004 season. In a close battle the entire season, Steele beat the 2004 Single Buggy Champion, Mark Steinhardt, 189 to 187. Michael Seefeldt, (Single Buggy) placed third with 179 points. In 2004, KC H ilites increased the prize money for their year-end championship for the second year in a row. KC Hilites will present a $ 1,500 check to Steele, Steinhardt will receive $ 1,000 and Seefeldt will receive $500. For more than 30 years, KC Hilites has played an integral part in the development of off road racing. We thank Pete Brown very much for his continued love of the sport and to the generous rewards he bestows each year. SCCA KILLS PRO RALLY, CLUBRALLY -The SCCA Board of Directors voted to discontinue the sanction of its current stage-based rally format, including the ProRally and ClubRally Championships, beginning January I, 2005, due to increasing risk exposure. "This was a difficult and unfortunate decision to make" SCCA Board of Directors Chairman Gary Pitts said. "However, from an insurance standpoint, the stage rally format has gotten to the point where it puts the entire club, its activities and entities under an undue risk." "We have many SCCA members whose interests lie in rally" said Steve Johnson, SCCA President and CEO. "It is my intent to allow these members the oppommity to rally in the future and continue to access the sport. I am confident we can accomplish this task. We are in negotiations to transition SCCA's elements of the stage-based rally activity to Rally America, a longtime partner and participant in the sport of rally." Unaffected by the decision are SCCA's RallyCross and Road Rally programs. SCCA began its special stage-format ProRally Championship in 1973. Since then, the ProRally Championship presented by Hot Wheels has been regarded as the top domestic rally series. The 2004 Championship has one round remaining, Lake Superior ProRally, which will run as scheduled October 22 in Houghton, Michigan.

Blaise Jackson and Morley Williams teamed in their Meco, got up to third for a while, but finished the day in fourth place in the SCORE Lite class. Brian Jeffrey rolled his Dunrite early on the first lap, and with that out of the way, he and his partner, Adam Pfankuch went on to take third place in the big 1600 class. Richard Beck and Paul Keller, in a Jimco, were up to second, but problems on laps four and five dropped them to fourth in the 1600 race. Daniel McMillin finished with a bro-ken right rear suspension, but was over-time, and so were Rick Baney and Luis Martinez, and Bobby Altamirano, who finished with a left rear wheel and the tread of the tire, but no sidewalls. By then it was raining hard, and none of them wanted to stop and talk about their day. Class 3 started with this group also, but they had to run only four laps. There were four of them, and Chris Raffo and Dennis Chencharik, who came out from Illinois for the race, had the first lap lead in their Blazer. They were just two sec-onds ahead of Tyler Stone in a T(¥'.)ta 4Runner. ln third, six minutes later, was Donald Moss in his trusty Bronco, and a half hour or so later it was Kirk Kovel, from Colorado, in his older Bronco. He was unhappy because his race car was "genin' only about 2000 RPMs". Raffo Chencharik disappeared on their seq,nd lap, and Moss moved into the lead. Kovel had a long second lap when he had to sit on the dry lake and rewire his race car. He lost a good hour. Stone was apparently also making re-pairs, because his second lap used up four hours and 4 2 minutes. By the end of the third lap, when Ken Moss took over for his brother, they had over two hours on Kovel Kovel was run-ning so late that he was in with the front runners of the afternoon race. He said, "There was lots of traffic!" The Moss brothers had a good day, and took the win, the only ones in the class to complete all four laps. Kovel ran out of tin1e, but even with his problems, and the rainy last lap, he'd obviously had a good time. Stone got only two laps done. The 5-1600 cars went next, with 10 entries, and required to run four laps. They all got the first lap done, but both Ray Maynard and Hector Garcia took over three house to get around. Neither of them did any more laps. At the end of Lap 1 the lead belonged to Mark Dee, who was five minutes in front of Marcos Nunez. In third it was Dave Collier, then John Holmes ran fourth and Ernie Negrete was fifth. Gerardo lribe, who'd blown a motor on Friday, was in the pits. He'd borrowed a motor from Guy Savedra (who lives in Las Vegas) and had blown a head on it on Lap l. So he and his crew were now combining parts of the two motors, to make one function-ing unit. His first lap took three hours and 22 minutes. Down time of nearly two hours. On the second lap Hohnes is credited with a lap that was 22 minutes faster than his first one, and 11 minutes faster than the next quickest, at 1: 17 :3 7, and moved into the lead. That may have been some kind of error, but it's what the offi-cial lap chart shows. Dee, whose first lap, at 1:28:38 is the second fastest for the group, was now second on the lap d1art, and Nunez was third, followed by Collier. The Negrete lost an hour. On the third lap Dee went back into the lead, running a very steady pace, and with nine minutes up on Holmes. Norberto Rivera took over for Nunez, and they were third, while Tony Dusty Times Steingraber took over for Collier. This into first place, giving him and Collier the team had needed to adjust their torsion win by 23 minutes. Rivera and Nunez bars and shocks to get the car to work lost a rear shock on the last lap, and it right. cost them about a half hour, purring Steingraber had a good last lap, the them into second place. Hohnes, even best of the bunch, and moved himself with a two hour and 26 minute last lap, was the third place finisher, and the last to finish officially. lribe's co-driver, Raul Solano, had done prenywell, and while it was dose, might have made it, except that he broke a thronle cable on the final lap and went overtime. Dee, after three terrific laps, rolled the car on Lap 4 and broke the left front corner off, finishing his day out on the course. Milt Moore also managed to finish only three laps, and Steve Landis and the Negretes were Continued on page 14 :x: t: ::; "' POMONA .. VE. LIST YOUR PHONE NUMBER, YEAR, MODEL AND ENGINE SIZE!

Neither of them was planning to actually run even a full lap, and neither did. They took the green flag, then motored around to their respective pits. The idea was that if their race trucks had problems on course, these vehicles could "legally" travel on course to the location of the broken truck, and help with reµiirs. l11is would always be faster than getting "permission" &om the BlM to send a crew out to help a racer. Partly because it generally takes a lot of time to locate the official and get the permission, and µinly because they then assign a par-ticular route by which the crew must travel to get to the affected race car. Some-times this will take the crew many miles around, when it could be a straight shot of just a mile or two. Thus, the two bogus Trophy Trucks. One Trophy Truck that didn't show was Mike Jakobson's Chevy. Somehow, in the process ofloading the truck to go to the race, Jakobson had broken his leg. He called in to withdraw. Two entries failed to get around the first lap. Cameron Steele and his Protruck-turned-Trophy Truck didn't make it, nor did Chet Huffman in his new Chevy Trophy Truck. Huffman's rear shocks went away about 30 miles into the lap and as he was limping along he was hit hard bya Class 1 car. He kept going along and after a while he had a . flat tire, so he stopped to replace it. Then he discovered that the hit had folded his rear bumper up so he couldn't get the spare off the mount. Not a good day for Huffman. Gary Dircks however, was running Continued on page 16 Kreg Donahoe and his Toyota were the sole survivors in the Stock Mini class and took the win.

Steve Myers and George Erl split the driving in Myers' Toyota Jimco, and as the day went on they gradually lost gears, finally finishing second in Class 1 0 with only first and fifth left. Brothers Leonardo and Alejandro Navarrete had a good day in their 1600 Jimco, with just one flat and a tossed power steering belt, and finished the race in second place. Norberto Rivera and Marcos Nunez lost time late in the race when they replaced a broken shock on their 5/1600 car, but still finished second. on me fmal lap. His front shocks faded and men an upper control am1 broke. He lost about an hour. Pflueger, who said he got "racy, and had some flats", moved steadily on, to take me victory. When asked how he liked the rainy weather, he compared it to Hawaii, say-ing he'd been "lookingfordlerainbows." MacCachren had lost the belts on Vildosola's trU<;k a couple of tin1es, but he still brought it home in second place, and Jason Baldwin salvaged a third place. Dircks finished fourd1 another lialfhour back, reporting that his throrde linkage had broken. He was me last fmisher in medass. Mark Handley had some trouble with muddy water in his Ford's engine compartment, but still took the Stock Full win. The Class 1 cars went off me line next, with 32 starters. There were 27 Chevy motors, two Fords, one TCl\'Ota and two of unknown type. The only one to come to griefon the first lap was Cesar Fuentes in his Chenowth Chevy. Everyone else n1ade it, and most in pretty good tin1e. Astoundingly, itwas me Smimbuilt Ford of Troy Herbst d1at ran dead last, after losing a full lap right off the git-go. The Jimco Chevy of Jeff Darland and John Herder had the lead, with the fast lap for the class at 1:03:17. In second it was Ronny Wilson in anod1er Junco Chevy. Third belonged to the Kory Smeeler/ Larry Job team in a Porter Chevy, and fourth was held by Steve and Nad1a11 Melton in aJimco Chevy. Chuck Hovey ran fifth in his Jin1co Chevy (four cylin-ders), and he was only a minute and 39 seconds behirld the lead car. well in his Chevy and he led at the end of the first lap, with B.]. Baldwin 22 sec-onds behind him in his Ford. In third it was Ed and Tim Herbst, another 17 sec-onds back in their Ford, and Alan Pfluegerwasfourthanothernineseconds later. Gus Vildosola had his Ford fifth, 31 seconds further back, and Jason Baldwin was one second behind him in his Ford. TI1ey were having a tough time with the short-course section, which was slippery in some areas and under water in some. Most hadn't been prepared for the heavy rain and mud, so they didn't have paper towels or rags for cleaning their visors until they'd made a pit stop and picked some up. TI1e second lap was hard on a whole bunch of drivers. Larry and Chad Ragland both in Chevrolets, became dnfs, Scott Steinberger's Ford was done in, and so was PeteSohren's three~t Ford. B.J. Baldwin became a spectator, and so, most surprisingly, did Ed and Tun Herbst in their Ford. Dave Ashley "spit a driveshaft out". It took 35 minutes to get pennission to go in, and then the route they were told to use was so long, at 15 miles, thatthey lost a lot oftime getting to d1e truck. Neverd1eless, they d1anged me driveshaft, but when he got back on the course again, d1e transmission began to pack it in. So they parked the truck. Now d1ere were only eight Trophy T nicks left on the course. Pflueger had taken over d1e lead by the end of the second lap, and he'd re-corded the fast lap for the group and for the day, at 1:01:56. Dircks was now sec-ond, Jason Baldwin third, and Vildosola fourd1, with Josh Baldwin in fifth. Marty Coyne had lost about two and a l1alf hours wim repairs to his Ford, and Mike and Dale Dondel had lost about two hours getting their Chevy around. They neverdidanymore laµ;, butseven trucks flogged through the mud and went on to finish Lap 3. Pflueger was maintaining a steady pace, and he held his lead. Jason Baldwin was second now, onlyd1ree minutes back, and Vildosola was third. In fourth it was Dircks, who'd lost an hour on d1is lap, and Josh Baldwin, who'd also lost an hour somehow, was now fifth. Jerry Whelche~ in Mark Post's Ford, ran sixth. He was reported to have broken a driveshaft. After a long first lap and a Page 16 really bad mird lap, he was nearly mree hours off the pace, and Coyne was in about the same situation.

Darland and Herder didn't come around again, nor did Ronny Wilson, who stopped to foca flat and men could not get me car to run again, due to some kind of electronic problem. His brother, Randy, never got to drive. John Gaughan and B.J. Richardson, in a Bunderson Chevy, were out, as was Mike Groff in his Junco Chevy.

Corky was debuting his new Rancho McMillin mree-speed auto-n1atic transmission at mis race, but didn't get much chance for testiI1g under race conditions. Billy Robertson had his new Penhall Chevy out for its first race, and Stuart Chase was driving. He rolled the car over at the same place Yee had rolled in the moming, putting an abrupt end to the tean1's day. Chase was okay, but the car was not. The Class 1 race was reduced to 24 cars, and the new leaders were Steve and Nathan Melton in their Jilnco Chevy. They had less than a minute on Scheeler and Job in me Porter.

His new car is "unreal" he says, but added, "I have a few more bugs than I thought." Keith Cunningham, driving an unknown brand of car, went out, along with A J. Rodriguez, in a Baja Shop Chevy.

His truck has two passenger seats, which means that the driver doesn't have to get out when there's a flat tire. It's a job for the two passengers. It took Donahoe 7:25:53 to do his three laps and get his win. The attrition was pretty stiff at this race, with only 62 of the 184 starters completing their required laps. That's just 33%. On the other hand, only 21 % of the Tro-phy Trucks made it all the way, and just 25% of the Class 1 cars got through the day. Maybe there's a lesson there somewhere.

The The Service Park at Kita Aikoku saw lots of activity during the rally and there were many spectators on hand. Page 20 APRCevent(this ~r run over two not three days) was only run on the Saturday and Sunday. This was a "rally within a rally", drivers wishing to contest only the APRC needed only to start the event on the Saturday morning, though drivers could compete on both events if they turned up on the Friday morning. APRC drivers were due to run be-hind the Pl and P2 cars, but in front of the privateers. This year we have seen the oddity of SupeRally, in which retired com-petitors could pick and choose which stages they wanted to do on the San1rday and Sunday, but now certain competi-tors did not have to turn up for the Friday stages! It was especially odd that on this rally there were two types of SupeRally, depending on who you were, the FIA continued to "experi-ment" with a SupeRally system for the world d1ampionship event though the decision to abandon the system alto-gether for 2005 was taken six days be-fore the start. Some drivers could re-ceive championship points by restart-ing the event, others could not. Perhaps the strangest twist to this story was that national drivers were in-vited by the organisers to enter a na-tional championship rally (North At-tack Rally, run on 2-4 July using the same roads as Stages 1, 2 and 4, short-ened to complywith maximum lengths required by Japanese championship events and organised by the same pro-moters) so they could practice the stages at full speed. Fifteen Japanese drivers who planned to contest the WRCevent took part as an excellent opportunity to practise some of the stages at high speed. The organisers also used this as a test for tracking systems and helicop-ter rescue. The North Attack Rally was won by national champion Fumio Nutahara. World championship rules normally demand special permission before drivers can be seen before a rally in the vicinity of stages to be run on a world championship rally, and this year all testing by championship teams is banned outside Europe. Special rules for different people on a very special occasion! This was the first rally to be missed by the Mitsubishi team since the an-nouncement of their withdrawal from the rest of the 2004 series, so there were only four registered teams present with eight world championship drivers (ev-ery works entry who finished would gain points). Not since the New Zealand Rally in 1998 had the world champi-onship only had four teams present at an event. There was only one "P2" en-try (Wannbold) meaning fewer World Rally Cars in total were to be seen than for many years. It was, however, to be an event which was almost as close to the ideal of being new to all the top drivers as possible, with only Sebastien Loeb having seen the stages previously.

On the road section to This was the start of the Asia-Pacific the superspecial (this time held in the event, and the only top APRC driver middle of the day) Mikko Hirvonen's third, was seeded nine places ahead of the APRC leader Karamjit Singh, ap-parently because he was a favoured driver who had opted to restart 46 min-utes behind Atkinson. These were prin-ciples nobody had heard of before. Singh: "It isn't fair at all", Green (run-ning eighth APRC competitor) 34 cars behind Atkinson. "It's absurd. You should see how the stages have been dam-aged before we come." Katsuhiko Taguchi' s co-driver Mark Stacey said the Stewards don't seem to care about APRC. "LikeArkinson, we also ran Day 1, but they didn't give us an enhanced starting place today." Toshi Arai held his clear lead to eventually win the cat-egory. Fumio Nutahara retired when lying second afi:er trying to drive through Stage 21 on a flat tyre, only for pieces of . the tyre to destroy the car's wiring loom. The Fujin10to cadet driver and now Arai's teammate Takuma Kamada rose to second place in the category, ahead of Dean Herridge. In APRC, the final day's stages seemed in favour of Singh rather than Atkinson, while Armin Kremer suffered again, this time wen he lost fourth gear. Still, half-way through their second day, none of the nine APRC starters had yet re-ti red. Nick Caldarola struggled through the morning with a broken right rear shock absorber. Taguchi was lying a safe second when on the penultimate stage the engine failed and the one and only APRC crew not to finish made their retirement. He wished he had not driven the rally on Friday ... Meanwhile, Tommi was creating new standards in zercxar driving. Competi-tors lining up at the start of stages watched in awe as Tommi arrived. They had never seen a zere><:ar driver snaking his car on the road leading up to the stage start, to warm his tyres! Sebastien Loeb was off the pace, saying that the tyres were too hard for the conditions and his co-driver suggesting that the series of early morn-ings were catching up. Sainz nearlywent off the road a couple of times when his intercom failed. So as to hear what co-driver Marc Marti was saying, Marti had to jam his road section headset inside his helmet, very uncomfortable. Going well with his new co-driver was Francois Duval. Droeven confirmed that he ar-rived in Obihiro from Belgium at 0200 on the Wednesday morning, and after only three hours he was on the road with Francois to check the stages. Run-ning early on the road on Day 2 was definitely a handicap, as Harri Rovanpera found when he tackled the stages one car behind the privateer Antony Wannbold and noted how dif-ferent the surfaces were second time through. The first two stages on both the Saturday loops were run on closed public roads, with a different feel to them. There were no instances of any top driver restarting under the WRC SupeRally rules, but then there had been no retirements among the top 15 drivers at all. who voluntarily drove the Friday stages gearbox was stuck in fifth.

Loeb now leads Solberg in the Drivers' series by 3~ points and can win the title in Britain, Citroen leads Ford by 35 points and must wait just a little longer. LJUaC:: For the second lap, Gronhohn and his Friday gearbox refitted. Behind Solberg and Loeb the pressures were growing. Martin "Easier now to push, your pacenotes are a lot better second time through," was charging, chased in tum by Gronholm and Duval, but be-hind them it was calm. Loeb had a spin on Stage 18 which dropped him a quar-ter minute, and over a minute behind Solberg. Gronholm struggled with tyres and had a flat tyre. Karamjit Singh com-mented that his car was too tail-happy. Reigning APRC champion Armin Kremer lost second gear on Stage 12 and drove carefully hoping to keep the gearbox intact so as to be able to change the unit that evening, while theALS sys-tem failed as well. Nine drivers started the APRC section, Kremer leading until his problems, then Taguchi, and on Stage 13, quite a surprise, when the leader for many stages was Chris Atkinson in the two wheel drive Suzuki. On the second lap, Argyle had two more broken rims and deflated tyres. Kremer had a new gearbox fitted but also lost the use of his water spray system and lost power.

In their 11th round of the season, Keith Steele took his fourth win of the season and things were looking up. Mark Kleiman, the points leader was holding his own in second spot, Scott Beauchamp, a rookie, finished in a great third place effort, Randy Rundhaug came in fourth and Dave Waldvogel rounded out the top five in class. Sixth place went to Don Demeny, Tim Konitzer came in seventh, Bob McDermid, a rookie, was eighth, Rick Hinman came in ninth and Al Konitzer was the 10th finisher. 11th place went to Randy Zimonik, Rhonda Konitzer was an unusual 12th place, Rhonda has finished in the top five every race this year, Victor Anderson was 13th, Rod Wells was the 14th finisher, JR Wagner came in 15th and Jason Bort was the 16th and final finisher. In the final round of the '04 sea-son, Keith Steele took his fifth win of the season; second consecutive win and that really upset the season applecart. Dave Waldvogel was the second place finisher, Rhonda Konitzer was up to par again with a third place finish, Tim Konitzer came in fourth and rookie Bob McDermid was fifth. Jason Bart moved up a bunch to finish in sixth place, Randy Zimonik came in seventh, Rick Hinman moved up a spot into eighth, JR Wagner finished in ninth and rookie Scott Beauchamp finished in 10th place. The Fisher/Polen combo finished in 11th place, Al Konitzer was 12th, Randy Rundhaug fell way back to 13th place, Mark Kleiman finished a very expensive 14th, Rod Wells was 15th and Don Demeny was the 16th and final finisher. Keith Steele took the Stock Championship for 2004 with a points total of 189, Mark Kleiman, who had led the points for most of the year finished second for the season with 177 points (that 14th place finish is a killer), Rhonda Konitzer was third in points with 159, and a fantastic season, Dave Waldvogel was fourth in points with 140 and rookie Scott Beauchamp was fifth in points with ll5 to his credit. So, the 2004 season ended for all but the Pro classes. Back to the drawing boards, settle in for long winter nights in the shop and start the clock ticking for the 2005 sea-son. The final CORR race of the year, New Berlin, New York will be covered elsewhere in this issue of Dusty Times. Keep racin' and keep havin' fun! ~ Dusty Times

Lloyd said, "We spent 30 great race, and we had a good time." Second place went to Mark Sabol, who drove a Toyota with a Buick V6. Mark said the air filter plugged up from the silt on the first lap. He had to stop so his pit crew could change the filer. Driving the second time in a race and finishing in third place was Matt Helton. He piloted his 1991 black Toyota with a custom A-arm front end and the four wheel drive re-moved. Matt said, "The dust was so bad that we stopped to wait for it to clear." Matt and co-driver Tim Krueger were surprised when some-one in the area of Pit C shot bottle rockets at their truck. Matt asked, "Did anyone else get fireworks shot at their race car?" And, in an under-statement, described the rocket attack as "inappropriate." However, Matt did not let that firework show slow him down. The next MDR race, the Stoddard 200, is scheduled for November 30 in Barstow starting at 7 a.m. !lJJB,,l Dusty Times

Kyle Le Due in second, Steve Federico was the third place finisher, ArtSchmittwas fourthaau;s the line and MarkKm~came in fifth. The sixth place finisher was Jim Kande~ Javier Sacio fin-ished his season with a seventh place, Randy Eller was eighth, Shayne Pagles came in ninth and rookie Josh Hintz came in 10th.

MORE l<ARTEK CHALLENGE Run To The Riches And Ruin For some B:Y Ann Donaldson Photos: Trackside Photo Winner of the Trophy Challenge was Michael Parr, seen here flying his neat little car towards the checkered flag. Marty Melendrez and Rick Wilcoxen ran their six laps in record time, they took the win in Class 1 and were first overall as well. If you went to Lucerne Valley for this Mojave Off Road Racing Enthu-siasts (MORE) race, you were at the wrong place. The Bureau of Land Management made a mistake. (A gov-ernment agency make a mistake? The horror of the thought.) To stage the September part of the six race series, MORE had to shift the event to Barstow. The reasoning behind the site switch, race promoter Jim Clements said, was that a com-peting event also calendared for the area had seniority. "The BLM had a motorcycle race schedule for the same weekend," Clements explained. "The bikes have been running longer out there than we have, so they got choice." To get the word out swiftly about the Lucerne Valley to Barstow switch, the Internet was relied on. That, un-fortunately, did not work for some participants. One contingency trailer went to Lucerne before the crew learned of the venue change. The trailer made it to Barstow a little late, but that was better than never. Technical inspection and contin-gency were held at the Tanger Outlet. A first for MORE was the pit crew competition that took place. Eight The Class BA win went to Robert Schreiner, he drove his good looking truck to a half hour margin of victory. Class 9 honors went to Elizabeth Metzger, she ran fast, consistent laps and took the class win with 28 minutes in hand. Dusty Times teams entered. The rules were simple: change four tires with a star wrench. No impact wrenches were allowed. The car pulled into the "pit", the crew changed the tires, and out the car went. The crew servicing Bob Wright's 5-1600 car beat the time set by the other crews in this test. Guy Savada, Curt Jordan, Matt Wasluskus, and David Norris composed the winning team. The contest is expected to be re-peated next year. The recent rains in the high desert area turned Barstow racing venue into an elongated booby trap. The sandy top soil was washed away in some areas. Rocks, once in plain view, were hidden by shifting sands. Other rocks loomed where sand-smoothed · trails had existed, and sandy washes filled with more sand to bog vehicles down ... Areas that people thought they knew were not the same. The weather changes to the landscape made it essential to pre-run this course. Race day had high, gusty winds under a clear blue sky. Each lap was a 38 mile loop with three outlying pit and checkpoints. The Pro classes ran six laps, while the Limited classes went five laps and the Sportsman classes four laps. Marty Melendrez and Rick Mark Dee was the Class 5-1600 winner, he completed his five required laps in less than four and a half hours. Wilcoxson evenly divided the driving duties through the rough course to take the Class 1 win along with the overall win. Marty, starting first off the line in the Northstar-powered Jimco, reported no troubles. And Rick, for his half of the race, said, "I was cruising." Their car's shocks were their only casualty due to the rough course. The team thanked FAIR pits and Jim Clements for all the fun. Bill Market, driving a Penhall Class 1 car, suffered a few set backs. A trouble-free first lap was not repeated on the second. A broken front heim joint, tie rod, limit strap all helped lead to the brakes going out. Repairs were made except to the limit strap. The third lap brought more troubles to the team. The rough course ripped the c.v. boot and, to make matters worse, the power steering went away.

ORBA President Testifies To Congress On Endangered Species Act The House Resources Committee, led by chairman Richard Pombo, heard testimony to eJ<ainine the impacts of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) on Southern California's Inland Em-pire. The Inland Empire includes all of San Bernardino and Riverside coun-ties, and a piece of the eastern part of Los Angeles County. It encompasses all of the San Bernardino National Forest and popular off road recreation sites such as Johnson Valley, Stoddard Valley and Dumont Dunes. Congressman Pombo opened the hearing by pointing out that the ESA is "Broken" and needs to be "Fixed." He stated that" during the past 10 years, 1300 species have been listed as threat-ened or endangered under the ESA and only seven have ever been de-listed." Roy Denner, President of ORBA joined the mayors of Fontana, Colton and Rialto and a Fontana City Coun-cil member in presenting examples of how the Inland Empire has been nega-tively impacted by the ESA The popu-lar species of the day for the local poli-ticians was the "Dell1i Sand Flower-Loving Fly."

Let's prove him wrong in mis years election! We are convinced mat if off-roaders went to the polls they would tend to vote for those candidates favorable to OHV recreation.

The OHV vote could make a difference!"But, over 100 mil-lion people are expected to vote in No-vember, will myvote make a difference?" You bet! The outcome of many elections has been decided by just a few votes. If Richard Nixon had gained one more vote per precinct in Illinois in 1960, he would have de-feated John Kennedy. In 1948, Lyndon B. Johnson became a U.S. Senator by one vote!

Let's show politicians everywhere that the OHV community cares about our country, our state and our sport. Let's turn out in record num-bers to elect those candidates who agree that the public has the right to enjoy access to public lands, and to defeat those candidates that would take our sport away from our fami-lies and us.

As a result, no funds remain to actually deal wim managing the species in accordance with the ·ESA In me meantime, peti-tion after petition, drafted by environ-mental organizations, are being filed to list new species. Chaim1an Pombo closed me hear-ing by telling everyone that he is work-ing very hard in Congress to get sup-port for bringing reason back to the ESA He stated mat" nobody is asking to doaway wim me ESA It just needs to be modified to provide species pro-tection in a way that can be managed." ;~-= =---=-; === == Dusty Times

Jeff Cepielik finished in fourth place. Chuck Sacks was in fifth place with Arturo Gutierrez in sixth. Rob-ert Maingot was seventh. Other race notes: Rubin Rodriguez and Fernie Padilla split driving duties. Fernie started the race and kept up a fast pace, keeping the car in third place for four laps. Rubin then took over driying. After about eight miles a broken rear arm put them out of the race. The Boyer brothers, Greg and Cory, rolled the car on the first lap. By the third lap a broken snib axle put them out of the race. Brad Inch spent many weekend hours dialing in the suspension on his car, but he ended his day with a ruined motor. This was a Baja Coalition-sanc-tioned race that brought out a large number of 5-1600 Baja Bugs. The class ran five laps. The victory went to Mark Dee and Billy Gasper, who divided driving time in a purple and green Bug. A roll at a race the week before obviously did not cause these drivers to slow down. A brilliant yellow Bug driven by Jeff Sack came in second. Jeff, who drove the entire race, commented, "I battled it out with Bob Wright. We were side by side for about a mile. Bob got by me, launched his car and, soon after, broke." Guy Savada was seen sporting a new red and black paint job on the Bug. Driving was divided between Guy and Billy Worthington. They both reported a trouble free day. Guy wanted to make sure Gerardo Inibe was credited with a great job of prep-ping the car along with Mickey Th-ompson Tires for a no flat day. The Savada camp was a flurry of activity after the race. Art Savada, also known as "The Tech Dude," was ready to test engine displacement on the top finishers in this class along with the 1600 class. His goal is to keep everyone on an even playing field. Dave Crawford along with Mike Byrd finished in fourth. When asked how the race was, Mike's sense of humor showed. He said the race course was fine, except for the big rocks and big dips. In the excitement of finishing the race, his car failed to come to a complete stop. MORE of-ficials sent the car back to the finish line to make the required stop. The Bolha family came in fifth. Jeff and Tom Bolha divided driving time and said the car ran well all day. The next MORE event is scheduled for Barstow on De-cember 4, 2004. !!!:.Q~E. PLEASE! DDN1T FORGET TD SUPPORT THE ADVERTISERS WHDKEEP DUSI.Yl.1ntus REPORTING THE DFF ROAD NEWS!

All the blood, sweat and tears that go into putting on such an expo paid off as more than 40,000 people filled the Expo halls and it was standing room only all weekend. Whatever their flavor of off road fun everyone was treated to an array of displays and there were tons of vehicles that highlighted the best of the best. The displays were full of off road products, old and new and between the buildings there were many displays by those too large to fit inside. In the crowd and in the exhibits, anybody who is anybody was there either to look or to be seen. There were so many familiar faces it was like a trip down memory lane. Dusty Times will have the complete rundown on the Expo in next month's issue. See ya then! SCORE BAJA 1000 DRAWING-The drawing for starting positions for the Baja 1000 was held Saturday afternoon at the Off Road Expo and there certainly was a great turnout. 232 numbers were drawn, lots of familiar names and some not so familiar. 28 Trophy Trucks are entered, 25 Class I cars, 18 each 1600's, 11 Class 10 cars and the list goes on and on.
