With 124 starters and only 55 fin-ishers, the event once again proved to be a hard nut to crack. The Parker event is a rac.e car destroyer. Even experienced racers find themselves heading into turns or other difficulties with too much foot on the throttle pedal. The course sucks the drivers in then spits them out into the desert. And they love it. There is something about that 135-mile long course that draws the racers like flies to honey. The BITD does this one race a little differently, starting the week-end with a "qualifying" run that determines the start position of the fastest 20 race cars. Anyone who wants to may take part in the quali-fying, and many do, because it also determines the start position within classes. The BITD set aside about five miles of desert, mostly sand, that wasn't part of the course, and each driver ran it in turn, two days before the race, to determine his start posi-tion. The fastest 20 start at the front of the pack on race day, a minute • apart. The rest of them start with their classes; their order determined by who had the quickest time.

Lee Olibas, in a Dunrite, now moved into third place and McLaren came up to fourth with the Wood car in fifth after a flat. Miller failed to get that lap done, and so did Kelby Pepper in Geiser and James Martin in an RCD. He called for someone to tow him back in. Steve Strobel, after be-ing parked in sight of the main pit for a while, in his Bunderson, fin-ished the first lap, but not the sec-ond. Only six cars went into the third lap. Lofton put Matt Loidice in for Lap 3, and he sailed along at the same smooth rate, with no problems, to bring the car in for the win and a .nice fifth place in the overall stand-ings. In second it was Hilfiker's car, with Nathan Goodsell driving the second half. They'd had a smooth day until late in the race when a truck, trying to get itself unstuck, backed up into them. Goodsell lost about 10 minutes getting that sorted out, but then came in for the finish. In third it was the Wood brothers, Robert having done Lap 2, and re-porting no more problems. Fourth went to McLaren who'd had one flat and said the course was "bumpy as hell and really dusty!" And in fifth it was Rod Millen and his son Ryan, who'd shared the driving in Dennis Hunter's Dunrite. Millen said he was functioning as a sort of "test driver" to help develop the suspension of the car. He also said he wasn't too sure how happy the owners would be, since he'd rolled it over and peeled off the roof. But he had a good time, as he always seems to do. None of the others finished. The Class 8000 trucks started next, a total of five, although one of them, Curt LeDuc, sta,ted in the fourth spot at the front of the whole shebang, thanks to a really good qualifying time. This was just the third race for LeDuc's Ford, since he completed it mid-season of 2003. There were five trucks in this class, but Christopher Gray didn't get the first lap done in his Chevy. LeDuc had the lead on the first lap, but John Dallaire had his Ford in pur-suit, only 12 minutes back in spite of starting so far back in so much traffic. Todd Wyllie was another 10 minutes behind him in a Chevy, and Kenny Brager was about a half-hour further back in a Chevy. LeDuc had his son, Todd, riding in the truck, and the plan was to let him drive some of the race. On the second lap they continued to lead, and had a half hour on Dallaire, who was just minutes in front of Brager. Wyllie had stopped to let his passenger out because he'd be-come ill, and he was also adding oil, and ran about ten minutes behind Dallaire and Brager. LeDuc was having a good day, but for one reason or another, he Dusty Times

Sam Hilfiker and Nathan Goodsell, from Holtville, CA, shared the dnving in their Jimco and finished the day in second place in Class 1000, only three-minutes back. Bruce and Russ Lierman and Walt Moon came from Washington and Jason Jernigan had some serious problems on his way to the finish Oregon to take second place in the 1100 class in their Suspensions line in his Ford truck, but he still pulled off a second place finish. _U.~n~fim_ited __ ca_r._. -~-~~---~----'------~ decided it wasn't going to be Todd's day to drive. He said the course was "horrible rough", but he continued to have a perfect day and stayed in front to the finish, taking the class· win and finishing third in the over.--~ all standings. Wyllie, whose truck is also new this year, finished second, at about an hour and 20 minutes later. Neither Brager nor Dallaire· managed to get to the finish line. The 1100 cars (SCORE Lite) took off next, with just five starters. But they lost a couple right away. Matias Arjona, Matt Cullen and Bruce Conrad hardly got to race, losing their Mirage's ring a.nd pinion early on Lap 1. And Mark Brownell and Chris Smigel did no better, covering only four miles in their Chenowth before losing their mo-tor: But Rob Martensen, a second-generation rookie, was having a good morning. He had the lead in his Chenowth, with a little over an hour on Bruce and Russ Lierman and Walt Moon in a Suspensions Unlimited chassis. In third place it was Jeff Moore, who'd lost a front arm and was making repairs. He lost about two hours, got going again and then to cap a sor.ry day, lost his motor on the second lap. . Martensen shared the driving with Rich Roberts, and the two had a good day. They thoughts the course was a "good mix of rough and smooth", and at the end of the sec-ond lap had an hour and 15 min-utes on the Liermans and Moon. At the finish Martensen and Roberts had almost exactly a two hour cush-ion, and the win. The Liermans and Moon finished with a front spare on their right rear, but oth~rwise all in one piece, to take second place, the only other finisher in this class. Class 7200 was next to start, with just three entries. Larry Roeseler had his Ford ih front right off the start, while Kelly and John McNeil ran second in another Ford, and Jason Jernigan was third in his Ford, ha;,-ing had a couple of flats and lost a transmission cooler fan.

Ultimately, Stein and McComas took the win and the Sunderlands and Crisp finished second, only 55 minutes behind. That's all there were. This year, for the first time, Clive Skilton's JeepSpeed racers came to the Parker race. These are all Jeep Cherokees, all running the same equipment, the same tires, and so on. They've been run-ning for several years now, steadily growing in numbers and occasion-ally trying a long event. For this year they're divided into a Pro class and a Stock class, with differences in the modifications allowed and the sophistication of parts permit-ted. There were 14 of them all told, nine in the Pro class and five in the Stock group, and they would do only two laps. These classes have to run at moderate speeds or else they c~n't get to the finish line, so the big job for the co-driver (passenger} is to keep an eye out for faster vehicles that may be catching them. They need to be prepared to move to one side and avoid being nerfed (bumped) which can sometimes result in damage. (Although it's not supposed to be a _hard enough bump to do damage, accidents do happen.} In the Pro group they all made it through the first lap, and they were running close with Barrie ·Thompson on almost the same minute as Ray Currie in front of the pack. Then Charlie Peltzer and Steve Thomasson were tied in a battle for third place. Thomp-son, who said he had a "killer time" and called the race "epic", said the course. was a lot tougher than the MDR courses they've been accustomed to. He took the win by about an hour. In second place it was Currie, whose son, Casey, drove the second half. They'd been on the same minute as Thompson part way through the second lap, but then they had to stop when "something under the front end broke" and needed to be welded. That cost them nearly an hour and dropped them to second place. John Coleman and Chris Reilly finished third reporting flat tires. Their wind-shield was peppered with holes as if something bigger and faster had sprayed them with small rocks. Mike Barrett and Bruce Kerstner were fourth, the final finisher in this group, with a rear quarter panel all smashed in. In the Stock group they ran in a fairly close knit group at first, with Jonathan Gyner and Bob Ganzer in the lead, and Jon Louis and Brad Dusty Times

Tim Hayosh and Kurt Puhl; who switched from rac-ing 5-1600 to race in this class, ran third, tied with Jim and James Hunt. Hayosh, racing in this grpup for the very first time, ran out of gas in the infield short-course near the main pit, and lost some time getting going again. On the second lap Gyner had the lead most of the way through the loop, with Hayosh and Puhl in second place. But then Gyner had what he called "major, major elec-trical problems" and Hayosh moved to the front to take the win. Bill and Robert Frey were second in this group reporting that they'd broken a track bar and a tie rod. In third it was Gyner and Ganzer, followed in by Jim and James Hunt who said they'd had no problems, but found the course "rough and dusty."

The first lap lead be-longed to Kreg Donahoe, in the Toyota, with a lead of three min-utes on Eric Tapley in one of the Fords. In third place it was Aaron Dixon, another Ford, this one a new truck. Dixon had already had a loose wire on the ignition and just before the end of the lap he'd lost a nut on a tie rod. John Baker, one of the Fords, had led a good part of the way, but broke before complet-ing the lap. On the second lap the Dixon truck went into the lead, with brother Ian now at the wheel. Tapley ran second, about three minutes behind him and Donahoe was third a half hour later. Dixon had a bad moment or two when he lost that pesky tie rod again, this time because of a sheared bolt.

They fin-ished second, just 18 i;ninutes off the winning time. In third it was Lance Magin, who's been a long time getting to the finish line in his Ford. He reported that he'd lost his batteries, and had driven by the light of a Mini Mag flash-light for a while, trying to conserve them. Donahoe, who shared the driving with Dylan Evans and Tim Serviss, had motor mount and shock tower problems and had to keep adding coolant, but got to the finish in fourth place. He was the final finisher in this group. The small SUVs (Class 3100) went off the line next, with three entries. Scott Douglas put his Ford into the early lead and stayed there. He was chased by Mike Falkosky, in another Ford, and John Holmes, in still another Ford. Douglas had a perfect day, with no problems at all, and finished with the win. He said, "That's a long time for this little truck!" He won by about 50 minutes. Falkosky had a good day also, but said it "got dark too early". Then he lost his headlights and had to use his top lights, which had to be adjusted before he could see well. He took second place and was the final finisher in the class. Holmes ran third all the way, lost about two hours on the second lap, but kept coming, only to fade away in the very last section and not get to the finish. There was only one Sportsman 5-1600 car, driven by the team of Dane Crawford and Mike Byrd. They were locals, from Lake April 2004 day as second in Class 8000.

There were five Sportsman buggies starting at the end of the pack, and one of them was Bruce Fraley, obviously entered as a chase vehicle for MacCachren. He did one long lap, most of the time probably spent trying to help Mac, then parked it. The Hunt broth-ers, from the Protruck class had an entry also, but it didn't do a lap, nor did Peter Claas or Keith Moore. But Boti Steinberger, more usually known as "The Weather-man", had his good looking Kreger four-seater entered, and he was there to finish. His son, Scott, was predicting that he'd overdrive and break something. And Bob was worried that someone in a big fast Call for special on HID's, deat other quality Hel vehicle might bump him and scratch his powder coat, but he was determined to finish.

So he took the win, and was the only car in the class to finish.

53RD UDDEHOLM SWEDISH RALLY 2004 Half century Of Tradition comes To An End By Martin Holmes Photos: Maurice Selden Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena show their winning form as they literally fly their Citroen Xsara to the overall win at the Swedish Rally. Over 50 years of tradition came to an end at the Swedish Rally! Finally a non-Scandina-vian driver has won the event, considered the most specialised in the world championship. It was a measured win. Sebastien Loeb held his place behind Markko Martin until the Ford driver made an error, cut a corner, touched a stone and wrecked his suspension. Martin fell back and finished seventh. Marcus Gran-holm had a rally full of adven-tures and brought the 307 into second place, while surprise drive of the event went to Ford's guest nominated driver Janne Tuohino, on his first works Rally, who finished fourth overall. Cit-rcen and Loeb hear their respec-tive categories in the champion-ship. The first PCWRC round of the season led to a walkaway win for Jani Paasonen, a large num-ber of top drivers spent time off the road. Despite the reduced range of team entries, four manu-facturers took turns to make fast-est times on stages and each of the top four placings went to a different team. Sebastien took it well in his stride. Following his win two weeks earlier at Monte Carlo, he joked "Winning a non-asphalt event was important to me. Actually I would be happy if studs were allowed in all the championship events, they seem to help me do well!" Breaking over a half century of tradition seemed to have passed the Frenchman by. Externally it seemed to be business as usual in Sweden. The route was familiar with very few, and then only minor changes since last year, but it was as magi-cal as ever. Once again the re-markable record in which no non-Scandinavian drivers had won the event remained. Everyone was friendly and calm but, be-neath the surface, it was to be a momentous event, the very last world championship event before the new alternative-format-rules (Mille Pisies or "2 + 3 ") came into force. It was the last of the six day rallies before the five day for-mat starts in Mexico, the last time there would always be set-time servicing before flexiservice be-comes mandatory. It was the first time under current rules that gravel note crews were banned. On another front Christina Lundqvist became only the sec-ond l~dy in current world cham-pionship rallying to be given the position of Clerk of the Course, while her colleague, Bertii Klarin, the erstwhile CofC, be-came the event's General Man-ager. Peugeot had to be favourites, having won this event for the past four years and having led in Monte Carlo before technical trouble slowed them. They had also won on the two occasions in which thev had been present in Sweden ( 1985 and 1986) with the 205 Turbo 16. Subaru were expecting this to be the final ap-pearance of the 2003 Impreza, before the 2004 model makes its appearance in Mexico. At Ford there was a change to their sec-ond driver, on this occasion Janne. Tuohino being their points scorer alongside Markko Martin rather than Francois Duval (who ·was run for experience in a third car). Mitsubishi this time put Kristian Sohlberg into their sec-ond car (Gianluigi Galli and Daniel Sola were both compet-ing in the PCWRC, this time with Group N cars), but otherwise the ten car world championship en-try was similar to last mc:mth at the Mediterranean. Once again this event was the opening round of the FIA's Production Car championship. Numbers of regis-tered drivers were down on last year but the high quality re-mained.

Temple was second overall, Tieman was third and Gould was fourth. Class 10 saw seven cars go for the win and here's the way it shook out. Saturday Bill Dicton led the first lap, Mike Gaughan, Jr. was second, 10 seconds be-hind, T.J. Flores was in third, Brian Freemal was fourth, Corey Cook was.fifth, Dave Campbell was sixth and Bryan Freeman was seventh in his four seater with-four brav~ souls on board. On Lap 2 Freemal took the lead, Dicton dropped to second, Gaughan was in third, Campbell was in fo,urth, Freeman was fifth and Flores was in sixth after los-ing second gear and his power steering, which he had to stop to fix. Lap 3, Freemal still leading, Gaughan moved into second place, in spite of losing fourth gear at the end of the second lap, Campbell was up to third, Free-man was in fourth and Flores was in fifth. Lap 4, Freemal still lead-ing, Gaughan in second, about three minutes behind, Campbell is in third after getting stuck on a tree for a while and Flores is fourth. Lap 5 and we're down to two competitors, Freemal is lead-ing and Gaughan is less than three minutes back. Final Satur-day lap, guess what Mike Gaugh-an Jr. is the only one left stand-ing and he takes the Class 100 Saturday win. Sunday, last race of the week-end and we're down to six start-ers. Once again, Brian Freemal Billy Shapley/John Pellissier split the driving chores, they were 1st on Saturday, 6th on Sunday, but were the overall Sportsman Buggy winners. Dusty Times

Mojave Off Road Enthusiasts (MORE) kicked off the 2004 season -January 31 Lucerne Valley. The F&L Fuels 400 was a 43 mile course with three outlying pits. Pro classes had to complete nine laps with all other classes driving six laps. This was the first Pro 1600 race in the season and brought out quite a few cars to fight for the money Pro 1600 offered. Any race that covers 400 miles, many drivers had back up drivers and co-drivers. There were only a small few that drove or co-drove the en-tire race. These guys "Iron-manned" and deserve a big pat on the back for their stamina. Wayne Nosala, Mike Malloy, and Bill Markel drove the entire nine laps. With Doug Silcock driving his 9 car and Matt Tovery driving his 9 truck the required six-laps. Ryan Radall sat in the right seat the entire race, co-driving for Bryon Ziegler team in their 1600 car. The racers in Class 1, 10 and ma0 Page 32 jority of the Open Baja bugs (Class 5) agreed to race in Class 1, resulting in a larger purse. The day was cold with wind that kept the course dirt free. If you don't already know this, the silt in the- Lucerne Valley is as. common as the fog is in London. Wayne Nosala racing his Class 10 single seat bright blue beam car won overall and Class 1, a blistering five minutes ahead of the next finisher. This was his second time to race this car. His average speed was almost 50 mph with a total time of seven hou·rs and 12 minutes. He encountered loose exhaust collector bolts on Lap 1 and a flat tire on Lap 6 that slowed him down. Otherwise he had a trouble free day and drove the en-tire race. Wayne said "I could not have done this without the help from the CORE Pit Glub, T ransaxle Engi-neering, Fat Performance for all their advice and Tim Baker for being there in case I needed to get out of the car." James Golden just bought last season's SCORE Class 12 champion. His first race with this car he drove five laps and Jason Hatz drove four laps. With three co-driver changes, they finished eight minutes off the pace. Bill Markel with his Penhall open car drove the entire time with two co-driver changes. Car owner, Scott Martin got out after the first lap and Donald Harper got in for the remainder of the race. Bill finished third in Class 1 and thanked FAIR PITS for all their support. Bill does all the prep himself and had no real troubles at this race. John Hayes and Tim Sharp fin-ished four laps in their purple and yellow Open Class 5, Baja bug. Rich-ard Lesher aJ;).d his son, Ryan drove down from Northern California to race their single seat Lothringer. For the first two laps this car smoked the competition with the fastest lap time April 2004 Gerado tribe took the Class 5-1600 win, he ran fast and reliable except for a horrendously long sixth lap. of 55.1 mph. A blown transmission put their car on the trailer. Steve (Ace) Bradford intro-duced the Lesher team to off road. Ace started the race in his older style beam car and suffered a heart at-tack while driving on Lap 3. Ryan Lesher stopped racing and the pit crew from Curt Geer all tried to help Ace. }l'othing could be done. Ace· passed away ·doing what he loved, racing. Ace had been involved in all types of motor S{X)rts from motorcycle racing to dirt track. Usually seen rac-ing the VORRA series in Northern California, ACe will be missed by all who knew him. Class 5 had one entry, the bright orange Baja bug of the Criswell fam-ily. Driving duties were split between John Criswell and Steve Griffen. Steve wanted to thank the Criswell family for letting him drive the car while Tim Criswell is unable to race for awhile. They had some down time with a c. v. joint going out along with the need to weld the trailing arm back together on the last lap. Steve drove the first four laps and the last two with John driving only one. Pro 1600 first race of the four race season had a good finishing rate. Only three cars entered were unable to complete the required nine laps. Mike Malloy in his single seat, brightly painted Lothringer won this class and· second overall. Mike drove the en-tire race solo and had a c.v. boot prob-lem six miles from the finish line. Mike averaged 49.2 mph for the en-tire nine laps and has proven he can win.

SCCA Sno * Drift Rally By]. Preston Bradshaw Photos: Tom Buchkoe • Patrick Richard and Briao Maxwell cornering hard left before a appreciative audience. 1st Group N, 1st overall in their Subaru lmpreza WRX The first of the nine SCCA ProRally Champion-ship rallies got under way in Atlanta, Michigan on Janu-ary 30, 2004. Run in the lower peninsula of Michigan,· ·and known for. the cold and the snow so prevalent in that region, the rally is a hard test for machines, drivers, crew an~ spectators alike as the competitors fight the snow packed roads for the coveted winning spot. This is the 32nd running of the Sno* Drift Rally on the gravel roads of the lower pen-insula, usually packed with Page 38 snow and ice. There are 19 stages for the competition, 113 stage miles and over 320 total miles on the rally. One thing is for sure, there will not be a repeat win-ner from last year's Sno*Drift. Last year's win-ner, David Higgins was left without a ride as Mitsubishi pulled the plug on its motor-sports programs for 2004. Also, Subaru announced it would not be supporting a factory effort in 2004 and this opens the door for a whole bunch of independent teams to rise to the surface, having been upstaged by t'he factory cars for a few years. On Day 1 of the competi-tion, Patrick Richard drove his 2002 Group N Subaru lm-preza WRX into the lead and at the end of the first day's seven competition stages, he held a nice lead of 13 seconds over the rest of the group.

In Memorium It has been seven years since Jean Calvin slipped her earthly bonds and went to that great off road race in the sky. Jean was such a great lover of our sport and of all those who participated in it. She loved to race, hated to work on the car but was always available with opinions on how to make things work. Jean was the greatest promoter of off road racing that there ever was so, when you have a spare minute, think a good thought for Jean, she is still watching over us and we all still miss her. Jolwv 13. Calviw A Little Dissertation About Jean Calvin, Off Road Icon, Idol and Hero Jean was skating in Europe when a dashing young Air Force man swept her off her feet. Returning from Europe she and John were married on September 22, 1956 and made J~an Calvin's last checkered flag came on March 31, 1997. A slip and fall ended the ca-reer of an outstanding lady whose presence had an influ-ence on everyone associated with off road racing. Jean was the distinguished editor/pub-lisher/gofer/writer/ad seller of the bible of off road racing, Dusty Times. While she fo-cused on the buggies, cars and trucks, she had the utmost re-spect for the A TV and bike. racers. When I first started to at-tend the SCORE races, it was to party and to find out to what awful inaccessible spot Morgan Malacca was· sending me to pit for him. At that time Jean was the editor of SCORE News. Morgan made sure I knew who she was. Of course, I was so knowledgeable that I didn't even know what SCORE News. was, however, if Morgan said I should know who Jean was, I paid atten-tion. Over the years our friendship grew and grew and while we would only see each other at the races, I always looked forward to seeing her and her husband John. While Jean had the latest in racing news, John had some of the weirdest, funniest jokes I had ever heard. When I called Jean one day back in 1989 and told her I was having a 24 hour race, she promptly informed me that she and Judy Smith had won· the first one Walt Lott of HDRA had organized.

Thrfirst CORE pit event was in )cmumy at the SCORE Laughlin Desert CbaRenge. Randy Jones raced ms UiOO car. Randy waS running strong in second place on Saturday wb::n he rolled ending his run for the c:hccfced flag for the day. A little known fac.t, Randy won Day 2, four ~ ahead of the second place The CORE club was out in force for the first MORE·race of the year in Lucerne Valley. Since this race is 400 miles, most drivers teamed up. Brad Inch and Randy Jones in 1600, Davy Girdner and Jeremy Craig also in a 1600 car. Brad bad motor problems from the starting line. After three laps, Randy got in. At this point, the motor was not very happy. When Randy rolled the car a makeshift roof was constructed. Babe Jones came up with the idea to use a door from his motor • home. It was then noticed that oil was leaking and the decision was made to call it a day. Davy and Jeremy had better luck. Two flat tires on remote places on the course slowed them down but they did take the check-ered flag, finishing in 6th place. Only a few drove or co-drove the entire nine lap race. Three teams that CORE pitted for, Bryon Ziegler and co-driver, Ryan Radall stuck it out in their 1600. T'aey hit a rock in the dust resulting in two front flats along with carburetor jetting problems. They fin-ished in 11th. Mike Malloy finished second over-all and won the 1600 class. Ac. v. boot problem caused some down time but his bright orange car showed how it is able to perform and his driving skill took the trophy home. Wayne Nosala broUght out his bright blue beam car for the second time to race. He won Class 1 and took the overall win. Excenent radio support from CORE helped him take the big trophy home. Pit support consisted of main pit with four outlying pits. Main c pit had Allison Chase keeping lap times and radio communications at a superb level. Along with Thom Singer, Bob · 1 ·eams racing on BrUoodrich tires swept every class in which they competed, including taking home the overall victory in the San Feli-pe 250, held in San Felipe, Mexico. Mark Post scored his first over-all win and first win in the re-no~ned Trophy Truck class this year, while other BFGoodrich Tires teams scored 15 of 16 class wins and the top 10 positions overall. "We love going to Mexico, es-pecially when the results end up like this", said Frank DeAngelo, Off Road Motorsports Manager for BFG. "We are extremely pleased with each of our teams efforts and Depew, Steve McMillin and John Lapes, Mike Ridlan and the Jones family clan. This included the always entertaining Babe Jones. His wife, Barbara. provided an excellent spa-ghetti dinner the evening before the race. Tim Baker was there with his parents who provided chicken with all the trimmings for lunch. Aside from pit duties, the crew was amused by watching someone try tQ start his motorcycle. For about 20 minutes, with many attempts and few people trying to start it. It finally did start to a round of cheers from CORE pit per-sonnel. Pit A consisted of the veteran CORE pit family, Gary and his daugh-ter, Kara Hall, who brought a friend and T.J. Greig was also present. They reported a relaxed day with no pit activity. Pit B consisted of Johnny Burria, Tom Craig Sr., Dave Caspino. They too reported not much activity. Johnny did help tum over a 1600 car that flipped on it's lid. Pit Chad Tim Lindsay and Todd and Kyle Jorgenson running it. Todd 1RANSAXLE ENGINEERING, INC.

The BFGoodrich T/AKR helped four-wheel teams beat the motorcycles to the finish line, the first time this has ever happened in a SCORE desert race. The Baja T/ A is the only professional grade, ultra high performance, race proven tire offered to the public. With 18 consecutive victories in the Baja 1000, off road racing's leg-endary endurance race, the Baja TIA offers an aggressive tread pat-towed Brad's car back to the main pit. In doing so, he got a flat on his truck but was able to change to a spare tire. . Pit D was the last pit before the finish line. Dave Girdner Sr. and Rich Clark saw the most pit action. They changed tires on three separate cars. Roving from main to outlying pits was Larry Altolf. He has been vital with bringing parts and car parts to where it's needed. This race he brought back to the main pit what was left of Brad Inch's roof among other duties. Thanks to all who helped out. A quick side note, some-one was tagging motor homes with stickers at the main pit. These were nice die out sticlters with a team logo on them. we know who you are. CORE has a new member, Rich Clark. who recently bought a 1/2-1600 car. Rich was able to shake the car down after the race was completed and very happy with his purchase .. Rich plans on racing this year. We can't wait to see it race. Johnny Burns will race the first SNORE race of the season. There looks like CORE will have a strong showing at the SNORE Buffalo Bill's race in April. This race is a fun course and a favorite of many racers. If you have any questions about CORE, v1s1t our website, or contact Wayne Nosala at (818) 703-1971. See you in the desert. By Clive Skilton After years of absence, Jeeps were back in numbers racing on the legendary Parker race course. All Jeepspeed entries ran two 135 mile laps. Fifteen Jeepspeed entries were present: six were rookies and nine were returning !003 racers. Although the drivers had talked of a con-servati've first lap pace, they were foot to the floor all the way. Mike Barnett was first out with rear axle problems just a few miles into the race. Steve Ghamari had new car blues af-ter 20 miles but carried on at a tern with industry leading durabil-ity. For more than 30 years, BFG tires have used motorsports as a proving ground. Success on the street begins with winning on the track and BFG Tires is involved in every type of racing, including oval, road, drag, desert and extreme rock crawling. With 18 consecutive Baja 1000 wins, the most wins in rock crawling history and an un-matched record on pavement BFG Tires has proved the only records it breaks are it's own. You can visit BFG Tires on line at reduced pace. Charlie Peltzer hit a boulder with the front dif-ferential and that slowed his pace a bit. Thirteen of the 14 starters cleared the 100 mile mark by late morning. Currie led Thomp-son by 10 seconds, Peltzer was six minutes back. Thomasson was a minute later and Bunch was right on his tail. Jon Gymer was sixth on the road at the 100 mile mark, followed by Louis, Hayosh, Ghamari, Hunt, Frey and Copitas, all running about a minute apart. This very close, highly competitive racing is the exciting norm in these restricted Jeepspeed Challenge race cars. There was a nerfing incident past the 100 mile mark, Thomasson and Bunch were in-volved and both drivers were found guilty of abusive nerfing, t·heir points were cancelled for the Parker race and both are on probation for the remainder of the 2004 Jeepspeed Challenge. As the race progressed Casey Currie and the Skyjacker car of Barrie Thompson drove away from the rest of the field. Casey broke a lower shock mount on a rock and Barrie cruised by him to take the race win. Going only two laps, the winning Jeepspeed car was fourth overall, finishing just behind his soulmate, the Skyjacker Ford of Curt LeDuc. Currie finished one hour later. Tim Hayosh, the Stock class winner was only 28 minutes be-hind the Pro car of Currie, fol-lowed by Frey, Gymer and Hunt. On Sunday morning, at the Blue Water Casino, Casey Folks presented trophies and prize monies from Best In The Desert organization. Add)tionally, Clive Skilton, founding father of the Jeepspeed organization presented extra prize checks and trophies from the Jeepspeed sponsors, American Racing Wheels and BFGoodrich. After this hugely successful start to the 2004 Jeepspeed rac-ing season, Skilton reminded all in attendance that the second Jeepspeed round will be held at the Mojave 250 in Barstow, CA. The date is April 3, 2004 and the race is presented and sanc-tioned by Mojave Desert Rac-ing. Point Standings as of the BITD Parker are: Pro class: Barrie Thompson, 50 points; Ray Currie, 41 points; John Cole-man, 32 points; Mike Barnett, 23 points. Stock class.: Tim Hayosh, 30 points; Bill Frey, 25 points; Jon Gymer, 20 points; James Hunt, 15 points. Dusty Times·
