There were more than 150 racers entered in the Pro and Novice classes. "We are at a crucial point with this series, which is poised for growth and ready to move to the next level" said Jim Baldwin, CORR's owner. "The 2006 season will have great racing, in some new venues, and will continue to have great racing in some existing venues" he continued. "It's truly an exciting time for Championship Off Road Racing. SCORE BAJA 1000 -November 17-20, 2005 are the dates, the course runs from Ensenada and back to Ensenada, covering 709 miles that will challenge each and every entrant. The list of 300 entrants come from 10 countries, competing in 27 Pro classes and 5 Sportsman classes for cars, trucks, motorcycles and ATV's. The race will start in front of the Convention Center in Ensenada and will finish in the Ensenada Baseball Stadium. As the race is almost a festive holiday in Baja, an estimated crowd of 300,000 will watch the race, they will be spread around the entire course. Sal Fish, CEO of SCORE stated that this years course will have enough sand washes, narrow trails, mountain passes, a dry lake bed and some beach running to challenge every entrant. "It will be an incredibly technical course, racers will be tested to the limit of their abilities as well as the durability of their unbelievable racing machines" Fish added. You'll read all about it here in the next issue of Dust:, Times, lots of words and lots of pictures. F:NAL FLAG -Muhamed "Moe" Fakih passed away on October 11, 2005.

CHAMPIONSHIP OFF ROAD RA<":ING TO RELOCATE HEADQUARTERS -Championship Off Road Racing (CORR) announced today that CORR Corporate offices will relocate to Southern California. The new offices will be located in Newport Beach at 270 Newport Center Drive, Suite 100, Newport Beach, California 92660. Television production facilities will remain in the greater Indianapolis area. CORR Owner Jim Baldwin had this to say about the imminent move, "I would like to thank the outgoing staff for their efforts and realize that many of these individuals helped to make CORR what it is today." "Considering the recent success of the two recent Southern California events and the plans for the series to expand new markets, particularly the West, this move is intended to bring CORR's headquarters closer to the existing operations of our other businesses, added Baldwin. Although the Avon, Indiana offices close on December 16th, key CORR administrative and technical staff will be retained to insure the consistency of the sanctioning and race administration. lt is also CORR's intent to maintain a presence within the Midwest, an ever-important market for the entire series. Action-sports emergent icon, Piero Wemyss has been hired on as Chief of Operations in the new West Coast offices. His experience includes the management of an action-sports related event and television production company. "This is an exciting time for CORR and its constituents, including racers, sponsors and especially fans," said Wemyss. "We are creating a plan that will make this wonderful series a must-attend for fans and a must-participate for sponsors, racers, and team owners!" Inquiries regarding the CORR series may be directed to Piero Wemyss directly at For up-to-date info, please continue to visit NASCAR NOTES - It was a pleasure to see Robby Gordon taking a nice eighth place at Phoenix over the weekend, hopefully, those new engines from DEi will help him stay competitive next year. Also, Jimmy Johnson sits second in Championship points with one race to go. Let's hope Jimmy can best the #20 car and take the championship. Go Gu:,s! W WERE SADDENED and shocked to learn of the tragic death of ason Baldwin. Jason was a staunch competitor in the desert and n the CORR short course races and Jason won a SCORE Trophy Truck Championship and a CORR Pro-4 championship. Jason loved racing in the dirt and he was well liked by all those he competed against. Our profound sympathies go out to the Baldwin Families. Jason will be sorely missed by all. Vata con Dios, go with God ROTRUCK NEWS - ProTruck race schedule will include all Best In TI1e Desert and SCORE races. Also, one of the double points events will be the Pikes Peak Hillclimb, early in July. The 2006 Pro Truck Series champion will receive a minimum of $100,000 out of the current $150,000 prize fund. The 4th of July race to the clouds will be an exciting new element to the versatile Pro Truck Class. "Off Road Racing is at an all time high. I am more excited than ever to be part of the present and future of the business and excitement of off road racing" said Ivan Stewart, boss of the ProTruck operation. Page 7

So, some payoffs were considerably lower than originally expected (dropping from 20 thou to 8 thou). Class 7 had about 20 entries, but 7S had only six or seven. In the 1/2-1600 class, once they realized they had 4 2 racers on hand, they decided they couldn't run them all at the same time on their short course, so they decided to split them up, and have two races. They erred on the first day by having the first 1600 race in the morning and the second ne late in the afternoon, erasing all chances of simply lumping their times together and taking the three fastest and calling them first, sec-ond and third. Because the course was so degraded by the start of the afternoon event the times were considerably different, and that wouldn't have been a fair way to do it. In any event, when they made it into two races, rather than add another pot, they split the original purse down the middle. So the 1600s, some of whom towed out from the Midwest with an eye on the $20,000 purse, were now running for top moneyof$10,CXXl, although, of course, two racers would be eligible for that amount. Some of the 1600 racers were less than pleased with the changes. Smaller purses or not, the racers still drove the wheels off their vehicles. The rac-ing was close, exciting and fun to watch. At the daily drivers' meeting the racers were warned that there would be "no contact in practice", told to "have patience in Turn One", and "don't pass on the parade lap." Everyone, it seems, was a bit on the over-eager side. After the flat tires of the preceding week-end, when four Pro 4 trucks ran many laps as the tires shredded and bits of tire flew into the grandstands, they had decided that a driver with a tire coming apart would get the black flag and have to pit for a tire change. It was also announced at the driv-ers' meeting that in the Pro classes, that is Pro Lite, Pro 2 and Pro 4 there would be a mandatory yellow flag on Lap 9. The pace truck would come out and all the racers would line up single fJe behind him and tool around at 30 miles per hour for two laps. This, said Jim Baldwin, would clCR up any gaps and keep the racing interesting for the spectators. Some though that the plan was to give the tires a chance to cool down, and prevent those late-in-the-race flats. It had been reported that the flats the previous weekend were caused by a buried piece of scrap metal in the line used by the lead drivers. It had since been dug up and removed, according to reports. Some of the drivers took the idea of a mandatory yellow flag with cheerful unconcern; some obvi-ously didn'tlike the idea. The first race of the day was the com-bined Class 7 and Class 7S trucks, and it started with a four truck tangle that appar-ently included Barry Karakas and his Ta,,ota, which emerged from the first lap seriously crunched. Jason Mount had a right front flat, and by Lap 2 Larry Roeseler had his Ford in front, with Dan Vance in second place. But then Vance slid back through the pack and Broe Roos, in another Ford, m<Md into second place. Javier Sacio moved his Nissan into second place on the fourth lap, and they ran in that order to the finish. As the lead trucks crossed the finish line Biker Sherlock confused the issue by motoring across the line in reverse, having appar-ently lost his forward gears. He was dis-qualified for his trouble, as apparently what will work in the desert doesn't work in a short-course event. They announced at the drivers' meeting the following day that no one would be allowed to run on the course in reverse gear. So it was Roeseler, Sacio and Ross. After the previous week's racing, Roeseler had put some shorter tires on his truck, and liked the result. John Herder took a first and a second in the Unlimited Desert Buggy competition, he's seen here flying to the checkers. Cart Renezeder was a busy guy. second and first in Pro-4 and the overall win and a pair of sixth places finishes in Pro-2. In the 7S ranks John Holmes took the win in his Ford, followed in by Brian Can-non in another Ford. On Sunday morning these trucks were Aaron Hawfey ran in the 1600 races also, he finished fifth and third in Third place in the 2nd Class 1600 round went to Craig Forest, his Arden Dennington (broadside) recovered from this mess and went the first race and was third overall in points. fourth and third place finishes hard fought. on to take a second and a first in the first 1600 race.

The two of them developed a huge lead as Pfankuch vainly tried for the pass. He never made it. In the meanwhile Fitzgerald developed some prob-lem and had to be towed off. Steinhardt took the win, with Pfankuch right behind him, and then after a big gap, Craig Forest was third. Steinhardt was the big winner for this half of the 1600 group. The third event on Saturday was the "Super Buggy Class 10/12" race. It was a mix of the CORR cars that approximate the desert Class 10s, about seven Class lOsand one SCORE Ute. There were also a couple of old short course cars belonging to Marty Coyne, driven by his sons, Brandon and Travis. Larry Foddrill also had his short course car here, and Jerry Whelchel was driving his new Hustler Concepts car. There were 26 race cars. They got through the first tum all right, and then, as they came through the "off road" section of the front straight, which had about five "whoopy" bumps in it, they were cheek by jowl, and one car got a bit sideways, and someone behind him bumped it a bit and started it rolling. On the first, fast roll, the driver's helmet flew out of the car. Very scary. Then he went over and over and over, finally stopping right in front of the grandstands, uµsidedown. Theracewas red flagged. The first aid folks on hand were obviously distraught and unable to fig-u re out how to help the driver, Joe Eustaquio, out of his vehicle. With the help of about a dozen course workers they very gently rolled it back onto its wheels, or the three that were left. But they were still un-Greg Adler took a win and a fifth place finish in the Sportsman 2 races, that gave him second place in points for the weekend. able to figure out how to get him out. It was obvious he was hurting. Finally, a big fire truck showed up in the infield (the fire station was adjacent to the parking lot of the race track}, and the paramedics with it had some kind of straps that they used to firmly tie Eustaquio to a back board, and then the hefty fireman slid him up and out of his car. Eustaquio was moving his arms and legs, and the audience sighed with re-lief. The ambulance took him off to the hos-pital where they put 14 stitches in his head and diagnosed a couple of cracked verte-brae, and a collapsed lung. The gutsy guy was back at the race course the next day, walking around gingerly, but apparently al-ready on the road to recovery. As far as that helmet flying out of the car, it seems that while he'd been waiting in the staging area, he'd just forgotten to cinch it up properly. As it flew off when he hit the first bump, he'd grabbed for the strap, and that he'd been the beginning of the accident. After a delay of 35 minutes the race restarted. They were without Vic Bruckmann, who'd been towed off during the excitement over the roll-over. Scott Schwalbe got the hole shot, and held on to the lead, with Steve Krieman chasing him and Jerry Whelchel in third place. By the second lap Aaron Hawley had moved through the traffic and into second place. On the third lap it was Schwalbe, then Hawley, and Krieman and Whelchel were dueling hard. A backmarker went up in smoke, and by the fifth lap the lead cars were into lapped vehicles. Mike Wright John Greaves won the first round in Pro-4, fell to eighth place in the second round Mike Oberg took a win and a third place finish in the Sportsman 2 contest, that and ended up second in points for the weekend. gave him the overall class win in points. By the ninth lap Schwalbe and Hawley were having a fierce battle, and then Hawley went past, and took over the lead. Schwalbe stayed second, with Krieman third until Whelchel moved up and overtook him. But then Whelchel flattened a rear tire, which shortly spit out its tube and then rolled off the rim. That left Whelchel on just the rim. Hawley went on to take the win, Schwalbe was second, Foddrill had moved up to third and Kireman was fourth. Whelchel was fifth, his motor smoking. On Sunday this group got through the first turn with no mishaps, and Jeff Elrod had the lead, with Gary N ierop in second place. Someone spun and hit Hawley, but it didn'tseem to bother him any. By the third lap, with Elrod still in front and Krieman second, Hawleywas third and Whelchel was fourth. Elrod and Krieman had a hard fight going, pushing so hard over the front bumµ; that Krieman's bumper was digging divots in the dirt. This time the excitement came when Rich Ronco endoed and rolled his car, and it was briefly on fire. Course workers tended to it quickly and Ronco was out of it with no injuries, although the car was done for the day. By the sixth lap the order was Krieman, Hawley, Whelchel, Elrod and Schwalbe. Then Schwalbe took a hit in Turn 2, and pulled outwith an apparent broken tie rod. Krieman, Hawley and Whelchel moved through lapped traffic, evenly spaced, push-ing hard, while Elrod faded with a rear flat. Someone got himself high-centered on the big bem1 offT um 4, and then on the 12th lap Whelchel went up in smoke. It turned into a big fire as he slowed, but the comer worker had a fire extinguisher that quickly put it out. Six or seven other racers were parked, unmoving, theirracingover. Hawley went on to take the win, skirting another roll-over in Turn 3, and followed in by Krieman and Foddrill. This meant that Hawley, with two wins, was the big money winner for the weekend. The first of the Pro classes went next, with the Pro 2 and Sportsman 2 com-bined. This was the first event that would have the mandatory yellow flag on Lap 9. There were about 16 Pro 2 trucks, and seven of the Sportsman 2s, which started behind, after a few seconds delay. Off the start Steve Barlow made it about 10 feet and his trans-mission gave up, so he was already out.

Someone parked on the Turn 4 berm on the fifth lap, and for some reason they waved a black flag at Dan Cannon in his Sportsman 2 truck. Taylor held his lead. On the sixth lap they were lapping the slower cars, and on the eighth lap Renezeder was right up on Taylor. Then, on Lap 9 the yellow flag fell. Ar. that point it was Taylor, Renezeder, Josh Baldwin, Brian Cotham, Probst, Evans and Ross Hoek. For some reason Renezeder was given the black flag. Greg Adler chose to pit his Sportsman Ford at this point. They followed the pace truck around through the ninth and tenth laps, and they did dose up as planned. Then they charged off again, into their 11th lap, with Taylor, Josh Baldwin, Probst, Evans and McGrath leading the pack. Renezeder had lost six positi,ons with his five second black flag penalty. He was furious. On the 13th lap Josh Baldwin got past Taylor, but then he rolled over and landed on his lid. Taylor went on, nc,,v being chased by Probst, then Evans and McGrath. And at the finish it was Taylor, Probst, Evans, McGrath and Dan VandenHeuvel in fifth in his Cllevy. Renezeder was out of his truck in a hurry and on his way to have words with the officials responsible for that black flag. McGrath had really amazed the audi-ence with his talent Getting through one of the land rush starts that CORR uses, and then keeping up with drivers who've raced together for upwards of 20 years took an incredible amount of courage and talent.

They went through the first lap that way, chased by Evans, VandenHeuvel and McGrath. Then someone rolled on the second lap, and an-other truck disappeared over that tall berm in Turn 4.

Josh Baldwin went up in smoke and out of the race.Taylor took the white flag with Evans behind hin1, and Barlow and LeDuc having the best race for fourth place.

In the Sportsman class history was made as Greg Adler, in a Ford, got his fll'Stwin. He's in his first year of racing in this series, a California resident, showing some fine short course talent. Baudoux was second, and Oberg was third. That meant that Oberg was the big money winner in that class. The Pro Lite trucks were next to go, with 18 starters. A couple of desert racers, Rodrigo Ampudia and Marty Fiolka, were trying their hands at this new game. Ampudia had bought this truck in time for the previous weekend's racing, but Fiolka was driving a borrowed truck, and would presumably be writing about it later. Chad Hord got the hole shot in his Nissan, and stayed in front with Jeff Kincaid, Toyota, Page 12 and Art Schmitt, another Nissan, hot on his heels. Hord had no trouble staying in front, and Kincaid and Schmitt kept chas-ing. Ampudia ran about sixth place, look-ing good for a newcomer. Fiolka was back a ways, and for some reason earned a dreaded black flag, which meant five seconds in the penalty box. Once out of the penalty box he was perhaps a bit over eager about catching up, and rolled his truck. He didn't make it to the fmish. The order didn't change, and when the mandatory Lap 9 yellow flag came out they bunched up, and Kyle Le Due, in a Ford, had sneaked past Schmitt to run third. Af. ter the restart things became chaotic, and somehow Kincaid rolled over the Turn 4 berm, and another truck also went topsy turvey. By the 13th lap the lead was still Hord's, but now LeDuc was second and Schmitt third, with Mark Krueger in fourth place in his Nissan. At the finish it was Hord, LeDucand Krueger. On Sunday they all came back, and Fiolka had decided that he'd need to be Marty Coyne took the win in both Unlimited Desert Truck rounds, that put him first on the podium this weekend. "more aggressive". But he did confess that his body was hurting some. Right off the start there was a two truck crash, with one over on its lid, and Fiolka was part of the action. Steve Federico got the hole shot in his T C7y'Ota, with Kincaid, LeDuc and Hord following him. Schmitt pulled into the 'hot' pit, and seconds later a huge cloud of smoke rose over the area, signaling the end of the race. Federico, Kincaid and LeDuc led for several more laps, but by the sixth lap LeDuc was second, and then he began to edge up on Federico. The Toyota must have been suffering some problen1, because it began to smoke and LeDucwent by. When the man-datory yellow flag came out Federico went into the pit, and then so did LeDuc and Kincaid. When the green flag came back out the lead belonged to Hord, with Krueger second and Ampudia third. Fiolka devel-oped a rear flat and after a lap he went into the pit. Hord continued to lead, followed by Krueger, and Ampudia' struck took sick so December 2005 he pulled out Kincaid was steadily working back up through the traffic, and got to third place on the white flag lap. At the fmish it was Hord, Krueger and Kincaid. That gave Hord the weekend victory. The Pro 4 trucks were next to line up, with 14 starters. When they got just past the second turn Rob MacCachren was tagged by one of the Baldwins, and before he got straightened out again, the other one also ran into him. All three lost precious time. By Lap 2 the lead belonged to Rene7.el'.!er, with Rick Huseman in second place in his TC¥>ta, and John Greaves, also TC¥>ta, was third. Huseman and Greaves had a terrific battle, which culminated with Greaves in second place. On the fifth lap MacCachren pulled out Josh Baldwin, running seventh or eighth, got a black flag for some reason, and took a five second penalty. By Lap 9 the lead belonged to Greaves, with Renezeder second, and then the man-datory yellow flag came out and it all clumped up. ltwas Greaves, Renezeder, Husemai:i and Jason Baldwin. There was a lotoflapped traffic mixed in. They resumed the battle, and held their positions, but Ed Herbst, in a Ford, who'd been improving his technique with each event, stopped in Turn3,andwasout. Greaves stayed in front and took the win, followed in by Renezeder, then Huseman and Jason Baldwin. On Sunday the start featured a big crunch, which left Jason Baldwin parked with al:rolutelyno steering. Stl"Ve McCra&n was also out, parked in the infield, also with no steering. Curt LeDuc had been totally spun around and went backwards into Turn l at 65 miles per hour. He later said, "I didn't expect to salvage much after that." His truck was all "bent up and wobbly." Rene7.el'.!erwasleadingandMacCachrenwas in second place. Josh Baldwin was third. They ran that way through the fifth lap, with few incidents, and then Huseman bi-cycled, then slid up onto the Turn 4 berm, tipped up on his nose and landed on his lid. John Greaves had moved up into third place, and Rene7.el'.!erand MacCachren held first and second. By the time the mandatory yellow flag appeared, Greaves had moved into second, getting past MacCachren' s aged truck on that lap. They all closed up, and Scott Douglas pulled his Ford into the "hot" pit, and climbed out, with some permanent problem. As they climbed the slope on the start straight, coming toward the flagman for the "restart" Renezeder jumped the green flag, getting a good start on the rest of the pack. Still, Greaves and MacCach-ren ran behind him. But then Greaves rolled over in Turn 4, losing three places. And then his right rear bar broke, and the only thing holding things together was the shock. The axle pulled out, and he was out of the race. And by the 13th lap MacCachren was visibly slowing down.

At the finish it was Renezeder, Josh Baldwin and l..eDuc, and Renez.ederwas the weekend's big winner. The Trophy Truck race, which ran on the long "desert" course, had only nine starters, but that looks like plenty when they do a "land rush" start. Dale Dondel got the hole shot in his Chevy, but then he spun and lost several places. Marty Coyne emerged in front in his Ford, with Jason Baldwin second, another Ford, and Matt Scaroni third in still another Ford. Coyne was having a perfect run, and was gradually building a longer and longer lead. His only problem was that he'd lost first and second gear on the second lap. He said he "held it wide open in third gear and hoped for the best." In Desert Truck 7, Larry Roese/er flew to a first and a second place in the two rounds, that gave him the points win in class. John Holmes drove his Ford to the win in both rounds of the Desert Truck 7S competition and that gave him the points win. On the fourth lap on the front straight, Scaroni took a bad hop and his truck did a sudden right turn towards the grandstands. His dad, Steve, standing right above him up at the top of the stands and working as his "spotter", calmly talked him through the incident, and got him settled down again. He didn't even lost a position. By the fifth lap Coyne had a nine sec-ond lead on Baldwin, and Scaroni was still third. And that's how they finished. It was Coyne, Jason Baldwin and Scaroni. On Sunday the same trucks came back, and Dondel b'{)t the hole shot again. Scaroni spun in Turn 2, and Chet Huffmamn got into the off road section and pulled out.' Coyne passed Dondel for the lead, and Jason Baldwin held third, with Tim Herbst in fourth place. Scaroni flipped up on his side in Tum 3, but then got back on his wheels and went on. Cc,,ne stayed in front, with Dondel sec-ond, but on the fourth lap Dondel went off course down in the" off road" section, and fell back to fourth. Baldwin was now sec-ond. Coyne stayed in front all the way to take the win, looking just beautiful as he screamed down the long back straight. That straight had two "jumps", which were more correctly called "drop offs", and his truck flew straight and true off each one, landing softly each time, as if on invisible tracks. It was great to watch. Coyne took the win, followed in by Baldwin and Herbst. Coyne, with two first place finishes, was the big winner for the weekend,. The Desert Buggies were next to start on Saturday, with 10 cars. They used the same land rush start as all the other classes, and Jeff Seifert rolled over and landed on his wheels, and was then hit by Rich Ronco.

About to be the winner for the second year run-Sebastien Loeb, with Daniel Elena, took the World Driver's Championship with a second place finish in Japan, seen here in their Citroen Xsara. ning on this event was Petter Solberg, who had been in the lead from the first morning, thatwas until two stages from the finish. Unhappily he met a rock in the road with his name on it, and a most surprise win came to Marcus Gronholm.

This smashed the hydrau-lics cooler, the hydraulics failed, and forced him to drive Stage 4 with no auto gearshifting facility. Gilles Panizzi (whose last event was Cyprus) found it took time to get a good feeling back again. At the midday service, Subarus were 1-2, Gronholm was next up, 19 seconds behind the leader and 6.0 sec-onds in front of Loeb. Harri Rovanpera, going cautiously, worried needlessly about tyre wear, was nearly a half minute behind in fifth. Daniel Carlsson had a strange intermittent transmission problem, caused by a driveshaft engaging and then discon-necting, which dropped him down to 10th and lost him the chance to get ahead of Hirvonen. Ford started off badly, eighth placed Antony Warmbold was the fastest driver of the team's four entries with the registered team cars 11th and 12th, while Dani Sola, in the second non-championship entry, had a couple of punctures and trouble with the mousse inserts.

Loeb's turn came on Stage 7 (the repeat of the long Stage 3) where he pushed hard and took over 10 seconds off Solberg and a quarter minute off Gronholm, leaping from Continued on page 16 Page 15

There was no chance to start again here, and so ended the hopes for Skoda's eighth driver this season. Hirvonen later reported that it was two hours before he was found and rescued, which did not speak well about the events' rescue services! In PCWRC Fumio Nutahara with his Yokohama tyres led the category from the start, in front first off Marcus Ligato then Toshi ARai, but his oppo-sition fell into disarray on the long Stage 3 when no fewer than six of the 10 runners punctured, and had to stop to change wheels. At service the order was Nutahara, Aki Teiskonen (despite the engine not pulling well and conse-quently a minute behind) and Gabriel Pozzo, all of whom had puncture-free mornings, led by the puncrure brigade of Arai, Federico Villagra (no punc-ture but baulked by Hamed Al Wahaibi who did), Sebastien Beltran (no puncture but baulked by Ligato who did) and so on. The national driv-ers often proved faster than the PCWRC with Katsuhiko Taguchi (Pirelli-tyred Evo VIII) over a quarter minute in front ofNutahara (the only Yokohama driver in PCWRC), while non-championship Subaru drivers Cody Crocker (Subaru Japan car) and Takuma Kamada (Subaru Tokyo car) were behind. In the afternoon Teiskonen started catching Kamada while Taguchi ended his chances with a puncture on the long Stage 7 then he rolled on Stage 8. Arai set about catching Nutahara and closed the gap to just 2.8 seconds. Llgato lost a lot of time with a broken rear driveshaft. Beltran had to stop and change a wheel because of a flat tyre. Teiskonen fell back after a lot of minor problems which included a spin when driving in the dust of the car in front on Stage 7, while Ricardo Errani stopped with a prop shaft failure. Crocker inherited the lead in Group N after Taguchi' s demise but was then caught up in the PCWRC race between Nutahara and Arai, and fin-ished the day third in Group. Natalie Barratt plodded on unhappily: she was back chiving a Mitsubishi, having recently used a Subaru which she preferred. In the various two wheel drive classes, Guy Wilks was well ahead. Andersson went off on Stage 8 for a long time, "Fog, bad µi.cenotes, everything going wrong at the same moment", declared himself eligible for Five Minute Rule and was able to restart on Day 2.

Nick Baldwin had a glorious race, he took the overall win as well as Class 1400, seen here on the long trek north. it. The way it works is that, of those who qualify, the top 20 become the first 20 to start the race, and the rest get to start at the front of their own class. The racers in the faster classes usu-ally like the idea, especially when they do well in the qualifying. This time the fastest qualifiers were the Unlimited open-wheel cars (Class 1500). The Weyhrich brothers, Gary and Mark, were first, and second in line was Pat Dean. Jesse Jones was third in his Trick Truck. Curt LeDuc, in a Class 8000 Ford, was 11th off the line, but all the rest of the front 20 were either Trick Trucks or Class 1500 cars. The BITD races typically in-clude bikes and quads as well as the cars and trucks, and as with SCORE events, they are always started early, wii:h a big gap be-tween the last quad and the first truck. It doesn't mean that the trucks and cars won't catch the late running quads and bikes, but it does mean that traffic will have thinned a lot by the time they do, and it's a whole lot safer for ev-eryone concerned. So, while the first biker started at 6:30 a.m., the first truck didn't leave until 10 a.m. There were seven Trick Trucks, and they all made it through the first 125 miles. But then the Jesse Rick Johnson and Dane Gardone gave it their all but they ended up Brian Collins and Larry Ragland had a mysterious malady that slowed Scott Webster. driving for Jim Dizney had major brake problems but in second spot in Class 1200, less than M,:> minutes out of the gold. them a bunch, they finished second in Class 1400. he got fixed and came in second in Class 1000.

Baldwin, who'd been in at the start, had been 17th off the start, thanks to a flat tire during his qualifying run. He had one flat during his first half of the race and was delighted to find nim-self about fourth on the road by the time Lewis took over. Lewis maintained the pace, with no problems beyond a flat about six miles before the finish, and had an hour on second place, which was Brian Collins and Larry Rag-land, in their new Chevy. They had some kind of malfunction that slowed the truck to five miles per hour part of the time. Cadiente and Whitton had lost over two hours when a mount that holds the axle in the car broke. They ratchet-strapped things together and limped to a pit for welding. At the finish it was Lewis and Baldwin, both earning their first overall victory. This was the first time they'd teamed, although they had planned to run SCORE's Primm race in Septem-ber, until Baldwin had decided that was too rough and rocky and he'd rather wait for the Vegas to Reno run. Collins and Ragland, disappointed about their mystery problem, finished second (they'd had a slight lead early in the day), almost an hour down. Bobby and B.J. Baldwin were third, an-other hour-plus back, in their Chevy. They had had a serious problem with steering. Cadiente and Whitton were fourth and Will Staats and Bill Varnes shared the driving in Staats' Pro Truck-turned-Trick Truck Ford and finished fifth after repairing a broken front A-arm. They were the final finishers in the class. There were 12 of the Class 1500 cars, and only six of them managed to finish. The only one not to make it through the first 125 miles was the team of Kory Scheeler and Larry Job. Then, only seven made it to Mile 315 and the second check. At that point there was a tie for the lead between Pat Dean in his Chevy Bunderson and Gary and Mark Weyhrich in their Chevy Jimco. Bud Feldkamp had driven the first half of the race in his Pen-hall, and now his co-driver, Brendan Gaughan, was holding firm in third place, while Scott Kincaid and Josh Lewis had their Porter in fourth. Feldkamp had intended to solo the race when his son, Buddy, who is his usual partner, Dusty Times LIST YOUR l'HOIIE NUMBER, YEAR, MODEL A/ID ENBIIIE SIZE!

Bobby and BJ Baldwin had steering problems, finally got to the finish Mike Alden and Robby Woolworth were third in Class 8100, they had some problems but soldiered on to the finish. in third place in Class 1400, seen here at speed. The Gustavo Vildosola's, Sr. and Jr. took the Pro Truck win, they're seen here at speed in their Toyota. Gaughan still had almost an hour when he finished, one rear tire slowly losing air. He was ex-cited to have his last minute ride turn into a Class 1500 win with one of the sport's early heroes. Mark McMillin and Brian Ewalt, driving Corky's car, finished sec-ond, still using the new transmis-sion designed by Corky and brought nearly to production-ready just before he died in Sep-tember. McMillin had an oil line break, which caused a "big fire", which melted one of his fans. He and his passenger got the fire out, and then Jesse Jones towed them into a pit for help. They lost about an hour and 20 minutes with repairs. After that the car ran hot because it had one less cooling fan. Sam Berri was third. He reported that his Honda Jimco had broken a spindle and he'd had to "chase the tire down" before he could make repairs and get going again. It cost him over an hour. In fourth it was Kirk Kontilis, whose Foddrill had suf-fered three flats, lost its reverse gear and had been hung up in the trees for a while. Kontilis The Flippin brothers took the Class 1000 win in their Jimco, they were a nice sixth overall when the checkers flew. The Class 7200 win went to Larry Roese/er, he drove his BFG shod Ford to a nice victory,· a trouble free run is always nice. Dusty Times rove a t e way, an sai , I don't think I'm gonna do that again." Pat Dean was fifth, his car driven the final 17 5 miles by B.J. Richardson, whose own car had broken an input shaft. Dean had broken an A-arm after the second check and lost a lot of time. Sixth went to Scott Kincaid, who'd had a difficult day. He'd lost a transmission line, and had to wait for a spare to be brought out, and then later, while moving at about 80 miles per hour he hit a hole that he didn't see.

Staats had towed him in from about 7 5 yards out, and dropped him off, not losing more than three seconds in the doing. Vildosola, who'd been horri-fied in July when he saw the Ne-vada silt beds for the first time, had apparently lost his awe of them, and just drove steadily to-ward the finish line He said, "Dane was puttin' the pressure on the last couple of miles -but we held him off!" He had only one flat during the trip and took the win finishing fourth overall. Behind him, Johnson and Cardone each had a flat, but otherwise said it was "all in all, a good race". They were only a minute and 43 seconds back in second place. In third it was the Staats, who also reported just one flat during the long day. They were1 about nine minutes further back. Alan Levinson had his Ford fourth, reporting two flats and a tire that fell off. In fifth it was Robbie Pierce, in his first race as a driver. Pierce, who manufactures Mastercraft seats, said he'd learned a lot about seats. He'd had only one flat, and called the race an "amazing expe-rience." Jimmy Nuckles was sixth in his Ford, reporting a "terrible day". He'd had an awful head-ache all day, and when he'd had a flat, there'd been no jack handle. Hogan, who'd lost that rear end, was the last finisher, four hours behind the winning truck. In Class 10, with seven start-ers, two were gone before they'd hit Mile 125. Most of the rest ran pretty close together, but Tony McLaren, Toyota Penhall, was an hour off the pace after a rear wheel had fallen off and gone 2000 -2003, 2005 CORR 6'w DIEGO PRo SERIES PRO • LITE WINNER / CHAMPION JEFF KINCAID / TEAM POTAWATOMI TOYOTA TACOMA POWER Dusty Times

Josh Hall had some shock troubles but the problem was eliminated and he took the Class 4100 win with ease. "away". The lug nuts had broken. McLaren cannibalized lug nuts from the remaining three wheels, put on his spare and carried on. At the second stop check, Scott Webster who was doing the race solo in Jim Oizney's Honda Jimco, had the lead. Oizney had planned to race, but changed plans due to the death of his fa-ther-in-law. Cousins Kenny and Clay Flippin, driving their first BITD race, in a Jimco, were not far back in second, and Allen and Scott Gerber ran third in their Lothringer. But they were having trouble getting it to shift. Wade Kelson and Todd Bogh were over two hours down to the leader; their Toyota Jimco had broken its front end and had to be welded back together. The Flippins had problems with two of their c.v. boots, and had to fill them with grease at ev-ery pit. But nothing else went wrong and they motored on in good shape to take the win and finish sixth in the overall stand-ings Behind them, Webster lost time when he flattened a tire and knocked the brake caliper off. He had to stop and plug the brake line, which cost him about 20 minutes. He finished second, tenth in the overall standings, only 15 minutes behind the win-ners. The Gerbers were third and McLaren was fourth, with Kelson and Bogh fifth, just three hours behind the winning team. They were the last finishers in the class. Three of the 7200 truck started, and the race was close for a while. Larry Roeseler put his Ford out in front early on, and just stayed there. John and Jonathan Swift and Andy Waters ran second in their old Ford. They broke a front spring mount and the rear leaf springs fell off the car and had to be re-mounted. They have a new car coming, which they expect to de-but at Henderson. Roeseler, meanwhile, never got out of his seat. He had no flats and didn't get stuck. He said the silt and dust was "incredible". At the finish he took the win and was hoping he'd made it up into about 20th overall. He was open-mouthed with surprise to learn that he had come in seventh in the overall standings. The Swift/ Waters team got their second place almost two hours later. There were two Class 5000 Tim Braden and Mitch Griffin shared the wheel, they ran trouble free and took the Class 7100 win in their Ford. Mike Falkosky had a great day, he stayed ahead of his competition and took the Class 3100 win in his good looking Ford.

The 1600 cars didn't fare any better. The team of Steve and Alison LaRoza, John Dupree and Andy Grider did it the easy way. Their car broke (it "just quit") about 100 yards off the start line and never went another inch. They didn't even get dirty.

None of the others finished. There were three of the 7100 trucks, but only one got to the finish line. Tim Braden and Mitch Griffin shared the driv-ing in their Ford. They said they "Just took it really easy, and just drove it." Behind them Mike Koenig lost his steering box at Mile 356 and put an end to a day already beset by a broken axle and fuel pickup trouble. Tyler, Blake and Terry Henn and John Herman also went out af-ter Mile 315, their Ford victim to unknown problems. Class 4100 fielded only two vehicles. Josh Hall had his HZ Hummer in the lead from early in the day, and Marc Stein, in a Ford, ran second. Hall had some trouble with a blown shock seal, while Stein was dealing with broken rear end parts. Ulti-mately, Hall got a replacement shock and went on with no more trouble, to take the win, while Stein faded away after Mile 315. Just one modified JeepSpeed came to race, and it was a long, hard run for Justin Mamer, Jon Johnson and Arthur Duran. The early part of their day wasn't too bad, but then they had front end problems and had to have some welding done. That set them back a bit. But they carried on, and as they headed for the finish line, in the wee small hours of the night, their panhard rod broke. The front end was then fairly uncon-trollable, and they were forced to a pace of about 10 miles per hour for the final 30 miles. Just to make their day perfect, the rainstorm that had blown in at about 1 a.m., caught them, and since they had no windshield or windows, they got soaked, and cold. But they did get a finish at the BITD Vegas to Reno race. The 7 300 class had three cars, all Fords, and all of them got through the first 125 miles. Carl Fitts had the lead early on, with Jerry Fisher in second place and Steve Olliges and Rob Mac-Cachren in third after replacing their transmission "in the morn-ing." When they got to Mile 315, Mac and Olliges were in the lead, the Fisher truck was second, by about an hour and Fitts was out. MacCachren and Olliges had no further trouble, and went on to take the win. The Fisher team was the last finisher of the whole Dusty Times

j I race, coming across the finish line at about 5:54 a.m., with a time of 12:22:25. Precious few live bodies were still at the fin-ish line to welcome them home. Too bad. Class 3100, small SUV's, had two starters and one of the bet-ter duels of the day. Mike Falko-sky had the lead from early on, but Rod Hall had his new H3 Hummer only five minutes be-hind him at Mile 125. At Mile 315 Falkosky's lead had grown to eight minutes, as Hall stopped to have his torsion bars ad-justed. When they got to Mile 466, they'd been at it half a day and Falkosky still had only four min-utes. And when they got to the finish it was still Falkosky, only four minutes and 11 seconds in front. He said, "I murdered two tires -we've been busy, 'cause the Hummer was on our tail all day long." Hall, who dTove all the way also, never got out of his car. He said he'd missed a few turns and had one flat, which he had replaced in a pit. All told, he was pleased with his new truck's debut, but disappointed that he hadn't caught Falkosky. In the stock JeepSpeed class there were just two starters. Jim and James Hunt had the early lead, and were about an hour and a half to the good at Mile 315, but then fell out at Mile 412, at about 2 a.m. Radio re-ports said their trans was dead, and tranny fluid ran out as fast as the pit folks poured it in. Meanwhile, Guy Alldredge and Cale Wood kept moving steadily along. Well, maybe not steadily. They had a fuel pump problem, trouble with a crankshaft sen-sor, lot an ignition fuse, flat-tened a couple of tires, and got out onto a dry lake that sur-prised them by not being dry any longer. They eventually got to the finish, and took the win. There were three Sportsman class entries; a VW sedan driven by Garey and Tyler Leavitt from Pahrump, a nice two seater 1500 Arlia's Precision chassis driven by Dan and David Moore and a Rhino, entered by Cory, Jeanette and Darren Sappington. The Rhino had a Yamaha motor and had about four inches of travel, tires that were maybe 10 inches tall, and a yowling exhaust guar-anteed to deafen all those nearby after about a half hour. All three made it to Mile 125. The Moores had the lead there, but not by much. They'd rolled the car before Mile 77 and had lost some time in recovery and repairs. The Rhino was only 35 Rob MacGachren and Steve Olliges drove their Ford Ranger to the Class 7300 win, seen here with their dust cloud in hot pursuit. Justin Mamer, Jon Johnson and Arthur Duran had some major problems along the way but they soldiered on and took the Class 1700 win. minutes behind them at Mile 125. The Leavitts were about an hour and 15 minutes further back. Moore kept on going, and ul-timately made it to the finish line, at about 3: 10 a.m., for an-other finish. He's going to fin-ish this year as a Sportsman racer, and then start running in Class 1500 in 2006. The VW disappeared after Mile 125, and word came by radio that the Saggingtons had got almost to Tonopah, and had broken. It's a testament to their skill and stamina that they got that far in that vehicle. Once again, the BITD charmed the racers with an ex-citing and difficult race course, which adds the extra fillip of beautiful scenery, and close competition. It's also nice to be able to add a good finish in "the longest race in the United States" to a driver's resume. Next on the agenda is the sea-son-ending Henderson event, guaranteed to be tough, with 400 miles of southern Nevada desert to cover. Then the BITD starts it all over again with their Parker 425, on Feb-ruary 3, 4, 5, 2006. ~ Rod Hall had a flat and a few minor problems with his new Hummer, he finished in the second spot in Class 3100.

The remainder of the 11 car strong Class 1 didn't fare so well, and fell short of the five lap mark. Justin Smith was the hired gun for the G&R racing team, taking the wheel for Ron Whitten who preferred the seat in the helicop-ter over the race car on this day. Justin was running very well until he clipped Todd Romano in car #126 with the right front when he blew a corner. Af. ter some jockeying• Todd got away with Justin in hot pursuit, only to watch him blow another corner and roll the car. After a few minutes to assess that Todd and his co-driver were all right, Justin continued only to break the right front tie rod somewhere down the road. Most likely the cause was the earlier im-pact. After taking lots of time, Todd Romano was able to fight his Tatum two seater. The process required jack-ing the car, and multiple McGyver-type actions to get the big car back on its wheels. Romano finished four laps. The other entries in Class 1 completed three or less, and were DNF. Charles Lathrem was up to his usual antics, winning Class 10 in his Major Performance Honda powered Jimco. Charles "in Charge" is always either winning or broke, and he ran flawlessly on this day completing five laps in 2:31:48 to finish second overall with the class win. Charles' Jimco is the color of the stealth fighter, and that's just how he seems to win. The man is sneaky fast. Rob Martensen finished second in class, with very consistent trouble free laps. Todd Elam was set• ting a very good pace, and was slowed on the fourth lap by about 10 minutes to change a flat tire. Funny thing was• the flat was caused by a nail picked up on the course, not one of the million rocks on the track. .. Todd recovered to finish in third position in the class. Loren Brown finished fourth behind Elam, some three minutes back. Loren also had a good run, with an extended Lap 2 that cost him some positions. The remaining guys in Class 10 failed to complete the five lap assignment. Scott Rhone got in four laps, spending lots of time trying to get his ill-running motor worked out. The team turned the carb thru the entire race but never really got the car working well enough to stay competitive. Ed Beard had a motor problem and a lack of tools cost him dearly, with an extended third lap. Ed timed out after completing four.

A special thanks to Mr. Herbst. The monies raised will grant three children their wishes. It takes about $5,000 to fulfill one wish. This in-cludes transportation for the child and the family, hotel expenses and whatever the cost may be for the actual wish itself. There was a huge jumping inflatable for the kids to play on, there was rock wall climb-ing and a slide for their en-joyment. The children also made and decorated kites and, not to forget the food, over 200 hot dogs and ham-burgers were served under a huge tent. All the kids received check-e red flags, race posters, autographed pictures, lots of stickers, and, best of all, Jeff Cepelik, an old friend who races a 1600 car, donated 100 die-cast metal Trophy Trucks for the children.

The limitation, however, was not the restriction of components but the time available for doing any work on the car. Assuming the post Tour de Corse fer-ries from Corsica to the mainland were on time, there was only the guaran-tee of one day, maybe a fraction more, to work on the cars before Catalunya Rally. These things, how-ever, were not uppermost in the minds of the weeks be-fore the event. There had been some very determined industrial action on the is-land which threatened firstly to prevent teams and visitors from travelling to the island. And if they safely arrived, maybe it would threaten their depar-ture -and wreck the inno-cent Spanish event. Happily life on the island became more settled as the rally ap-proached and everyone ar-rived without problem. This was the setting for the 14th round of the full 2005 championship, and the penultimate round in the FIA's Junior world championship. Not much else was new, just a couple of stretches of road not used before and a series of promotional events aimed at entertaining the specta-tors and visitors. After Sebastien Loeb retained the World Drivers' title in Ja-pan, Ciuoen's main chal-lenge now was to try to win the Manufacturers' title. There was also a personal challenge for Loeb: he had never won his country's world championship quali-fier ... The independent OMV Citroen team ran only one car on this event, which was driven by Xavier Pons. For reasons of respect for tragic events in earlier years involving rally cars bearing the competition number 4, the organisers of the rally planned to revert to an earlier tradition of not using this competition number on this event. The competition number issued instead for Ford's number two driver, Roman Kresta, was 15, but number 4 duly appeared on the car. In their inimitable individual style, the door number plates on cars were the usual size, but the bold and proud name of the country where the rally was held was not there. The word Corsica measured exactly 7mm high! Following Markko Martin's decision not to continut Dusty Times

There were four Skoda Fabia WRCs, three works cars and one entered by Eq uipe de France FFSA for Nicolas Vouilloz, to be run by First Motorsport.

Statistically it was getting close ... After Rally Japan, Marcus Gronholm and Sebastien Loeb had each won 18 world champion-ship rallies (but, of course, are some way behind the most successful drivers) while both Peugeot and Ford are equal with 48 wins, with only Lancia hav-ing a greater record of suc-cess. In the Junior WRC, the two drivers who elected to miss this event were the Suzuki Swift drivers Per-Gunnar Andersson and Guy Wilks. The British driver Justin Dale had entered a Ford Fiesta Super 1600 but that was cancelled. The weather was not very nice, warm and wet, the air was heavy with high humidity as the visitors arrived. On the Wednesday night there was a very heavy storm and wa-ter was everywhere when the crews started their Shake-December 200s down. By midday, however, the sun was coming out and the portside service park became a nicer place to be. The usual trio dominated the practice run. This time Loeb was in front of Gronholm and Solberg, with Panizzi joint third. The only other excitement at Shakedown was when Pavel Valousek rolled his Ignis. The city of Ajaccio mean-while became a traffic nightmare as a major road repair scheme got under way and contributed to Loeb committing the cardinal sin of being late for the FIA's Press Conference. Gronholm arrived in good time, but ruffled, after a high speed lift on a motor-cycle! Gronholm was pessi-mistic. Even though the sus-pension of the 307 has pro-gressively improved over the last months, he said "I will still be happy even if I fin-Continued DR page 42 Page 41 --

even on the final stage of the day, when his gear lever came completely away in his hand! Leg 3 4 Stages, asphalt, 95.46kms. Forty-six cars actually re-started but the car due to be first on the road, Gilles Panizzi's Mitsubishi, was missing. Panizzi's problem on the second day was traced to a faulty ECU, but the team decided to spend the Sunday refettling the car for Spain rather than continue in the forlorn hope of a point or two. Although there was no particular damage to Dani Sola's car the day before, Ford asked that it should not be put on the start list for the final day, preferring to keep the car intact for Catalunya. Getting closer to their re-maining title, Citroen started the day in exactly the position they wanted. Sebastien Loeb leading, Francois Duval in fourth place which would guarantee the company the Makes' title for the third year running, but hopes were dashed when Duval went off the road on Stage 9 and lost towards three minutes. This dropped him to eighth and they with-drew. No French celebra-tions, but when Loeb got to the end of the rally, having won every stage, it was a pretty special occasion. By general assumption between the teams, retirement on this event meant that there would be no penalty for ar-riving in Spain with a differ-ent chassis but officially the final word would rest with the Stewards in Spain. With this being the third dry day of the rally, drivers were running low on their avail-able registered stocks of dry weather tyres, but there were extra troubles. Harri Rovanpera had air pressure (not hydraulic with Mitsubishis!) problems with his transmission again, Gianluigi Galli also had gearshift trouble. Missing, again, was Chris Atkinson, this time his exit being pre-ceded by long black lines, with the car finally settling beside the road. Continuing well was Alex Bengue in the number two Skoda in sixth place overall. Just as hearts were sink-ing in the Citroen camp came a fresh glimmer of hope. Although Sordo had failed to finish the second leg and used the Five Minute Rule to restart, he had only fallen to fourth place and there was the pos-sibility he could still win the category here and be Cham-pion. At the mid morning service park Sordo had pulled up to second, ahead of Kosti Katajamaki, but there still remained around three minutes between him and leader Mirco Baldacci, with two stages to go. Baldacci meanwhile was calm, managed to keep Sordo at bay and gained for Fiat their first JWRC win for two years. Behind these two, Luca Betti went off the road and retired while Luce Cecchettini punctured and had to change the wheel on the stage, which let Conrad Rautenbach rise to fifth, despite a lengthy delay with a spin. Pavel Valousek re-ti red with electrical trouble, possibly a throw-back to his earlier accident. Not the rush was really on to get to Spain. Peugeot de-cided that they would revert to their 05 transmission sys-tems and take no more risks in that department. Mitsubi-shi opted to nominate Galli as their number two driver.

More informa-tion about the Ouisonas Dinner, Christ-mas raffle and FAIR in general can be found on the website: WIWl.fairpitcom FAIR members entered 13 cars in the MORE Playtech 250 on Septem-ber 17, 2005. Three of those members sped in for victories in their classes. Driv-ing in the 5-1600 class, Gerardo lribe finished in first place. Joining him on the podium were Guy Savedra in sec-ond and Ric Cordova in third place. Ken Tolbert followed them in finishing the race in fifth place. Frank Wagner, driving his new 9 class car, gained a first place finish. Frank stated after the race. "Itwasagreatrace. Thanks to JFK Race Cars, if it wasn't for them we wouldn't have won." Second place in the 9 class was attained by Ron Rash, and follow-ing him in were Cody Rash in seventh place and Christopher Dunne in 11th. Also taking a first place finish was Girl Gowland in his Jeep Speed. Jennifer Clemison had a fourth place finish in her Class 1 car and Curt Geer came in eighth in the 1/2-1600 class. Rick Waszkiewicz and Greg Crew took fifth and sixth place finishes respectively in the 1300 class. During this race, Clas.5 9 driver Frank Wagner gave Pit A quite a show on his first time through. He landed into Pit A after bouncing through the whooµ; full throttle. When he finally came to rest, his helmet was skewed sideways and he was unable to see. After correcting his helmet, he sped through the pit giving evef)Qne a big thumbs up. On September 24th FAIR members raced in the MDR Mojave 200. Girl Gowland and his co-rider Jeff had a rough race, but ultimately were able to finish. He started the race with a fuel leak in his Jeep Speed, but decided to race anyway. Girl ended up having to change the fuel line and clamµ; during the first lap after it burst six miles into the race. During Lap 2 he came into the Main Pit to replace a snapped clevis bolt and front limit strap. After the repairs were completed, the Jeep was checked over, refueled, and theywere off for Lap 3.1.ap 3 lead to another set back when he heard a loud thud under the Jeep and figured it must have been a rock hitting the frame. The steering was fine, so he just backed off a bit until he was able to pit. As they pitted, the crew checked over the car and gave Girl the "sliced throat signal"; the upper track arm on the driver's side was gone! Much to evet)Qne' s amazement, he decided to · forge on and tty to at least finish. He figured ifhe had driven 14 miles with it gone, what was another 40? The lap was painfully slow for them, but they did in fact finish the race. It was quite a day for Girl Gowland and his crew.

As it turns out, the pre-event buzz was well war-ranted as the 85 competitors (from as far away as California and Massa-chusetts), who took part in the inau-gural event this past weekend at Motorsports Park Hastings (MPH) in Hastings, Nebraska were privy to a fantastic weekend full of dirt flying action. The weather cooperated, as ex-pected, only threatening rain early on Sunday but never producing. So, as the Saturday .6 mile and Sunday .8 mile dirt courses remained dry, driv-ers in each of the 10 classes show-cased their off road talen ts in front of thousands of spectators, challeng-ing for the right to call themselves the first ever Winners of a RallyCross National. Tim Chevalier made the 26 hour trek from his North Grafton, Mass. home well worth it as he left the heart-land as winner in the Rally Prepared 4WD class. Driving a 1992 Volkswagen GTi, Chevalier turned the fastest time both days, eventually taking the win by 6.629 seconds over Nathan Conley of Monument, Colo-rado, who drove the Redline Pipe-line 1998 Volkswagen GTi. Shawn Whitney, Littleton, Colorado, was third, almost 10 seconds behind Conley. "The course was awesome n Cheva-lier said. "Competition was fierce, to say the least." The battles in all of the classes were very close. In (Rally Pre-pared Two Wheel Drive), we went into Sunday with four cars within 1.3 seconds of each other. From what I heard, the other classes were just as tight. "It was an awesome event. The support the town threw behind the event was fantastic. I'm already look-ing forward to next year's event. n Marek Gorecki, of Palo Alto, CA and Peter Cowan, Fremont, CA drove countless hours to take part in the ground breaking event, and by the end of the six accumulated run times, only .505 seconds separated the two in Rally Modified 4WD. Gorecki, sharing the Team Go Big 2004 Subaru WRX Sri with Cowan, earned bragging rights between the two drivers, taking the win with a blis-tering time of 104.367 (1 minute, 44.367 seconds) on his next to last run Sunday. Cowan tried to answer, but fell short on his last attempt, post-ing a personal best, 105.821. Ben Sagenkahn, Woodland Park, Colo-rado, finished third in his 1992 Subaru Legacy, 8.978 seconds be-hind Cowan. Cole Ones, Golden, Colorado, overcame a first day, two second defi-cit in Rally Street Front Wheel Drive and took top honors with a win in his 1985 Chevrolet Spectrum. Ones wound up taking the class by 3.304 seconds over Scott Cannon of Lisbon, Nebraska, who led the class for most of the weekend but couldn't wrap things up late in his Market Street 2000 Ford Focus ZX3. Can-non hit a cone on his final run, giving him a five second penalty, thus a run time of 114.602 and a total time of 593.136 seconds. Without the cone, Cannon would have had a 109.602 and a total time of 588.136, which would have beat Ones 589.832. Chad Ones, Pueblo, Colorado, finished third, but barely. Sharing the 1985 Chevrolet Spectrum with his brother, Chad finished with a time of 593.146, just .010 seconds behind Cannon. Ken Cashion, Denver, Colorado, earned two honors over the weekend. Driving a 2000 Audi S4, Cashion handily won the Street Stock All Wheel Drive class by 14 seconds over John Kunkle, Ceresca, Nebraska. Cashion then proceeded to beat out seven others in the Spady Auto Deal-ers RallyCross shootout, which brought the winners from each class together for a single run. Cashion's time of 72.212 was nearly two seconds better than run-ner-up Cole Ones, who finished .166 seconds ahead of Scott Leonard of Carbondale, Colorado.

BoRDER TYRES BFGooDRICH G00Nn1w1Nn1 400 Shannan Rentsch Wins Race & Australian Championship Text & Photos: Steve Hilton . . The Class 2 winner was Keleb Schmidt, he's seen here in his Rimco Schmidt built buggy at speed on the course. Kittle sponsored Toyota Jimco of David Fel-lows, a cam shaft had broken and it looked as if his chances to gain points for the overall cham-pionship were gone. Danny Auricht his team-mate in the To-,ota powered)im:o, had prologued well, but decided that after the shootout they would take out the cam shaft from his engine and replace the broken shaft in Fellows' en-gine, this would allow Fellows to still run in the event and give him a chance to score some points. In Class 2 the 1650cc Buggy class Chris Coultard was the leader followed by Keleb Schmidt in the Rimco Schmidt buUt buggy. The race belonged to Shannon Rentsch, his Chenowth, with Nissan power triumphed and he was declared the Australian champion. In Class 4 Unlimited truck and Baja class Matthew Coleman in the Chevy powered Ro-deo was untroubled and led the class. Class 5 Limited 2WD, Jason Telford in a Chevy powered Holden Ute had control with his closest rival Darian Smith in a Toyota in second place. The Queensland round of the champion-ship held again at the country town of Goondiwind~ this round would deooe the win-ner of the closely fought championship between Rentsch who was holding a small two point advantage over Burrows, not far behind these two were Bentley and Fellows, all with a chance of winning the championship title. The race schedule was a Saturday prologue, top t.en shoot out and the race to commence with three laps of the 40 kilometre course, then on Sunday another section of three laps, a break and then another three laps to the finish, the Sunday sections were to have double points available to competitors and would decide the champion-ship. The Goondiwindi showgroundswas the Fri-day night venue for the safety and tech inspec-tion and all vehicles paraded through the in-spection area where the crowds oflocals could get up dose to the vehicles and crews. Saturday morning and an overcast sky greeted everyone, there was a possihUity of rain later in the day or overnight. The track condi-tion for the morning prologue looked bad, no rain had yet fallen to settle the very dry land on which the prologue and race would be run. A very small crowd of spectators and crew lined the hill to watch their cars compete in what would be a very important prologue to decide starring positions for the race. Prologue It all went Jason Telford's way, he drove his Holden with the Chevrolet powerplant to the Class 5, Limited 2WD win. Shannon Rentsch with his Nissan turbo powered Chenowth was first to finish with a very fast time over the six kilometre course, the Jimco ofBurrows was second fastest, two sec-onds behind Rentsch. Another Jimco, Danny Aurichtwas third followed by Bruce Chapman in founh in a Subaru turbo powered Jimco, fresh from his outright win in the Warialda event two weeks early. Joe Bulmer, the local in another Jimco with a Mazda turbo engine was fifth followed closely by Svenson in the VB Toyota buggy and Bentley in the very impres-sive Chevy Jimco. Broken out on the course was the Peter Class 7 Factory4WD, the Mitsubishi Pajero of Geoff Pickering was the only one in the class, so had no worries and went about getting a fast time which would put him closer to the front of the field. Class 8 Unlimited 4WD was to be con-tested by only one competitor, that of the Jeep of Colin Hunter, here to show his sponsors Jeep Australia a good result. Class 9 Unlimited single seat buggies and the current champion of this class Trevor • st«k And High Pel'formanteJflVTIII • Fflf:t:Ory•f'ralned Mendeola Builder and Autllorl%ed Distributor_ • so rears combined Expettence • Unsurpassed llellllbllltY • High ouallty / Low l'llce Copeland in his Jimco held a small lead over Brad Prout in another Jimco. Tip Ten Shoot Out After the times had been posted for the prologue the fastest ten would line up for an-other pass over the course to try and improve their starring positions. Again Rentsch was fast-est, the dusty conditions made it harder for the following cars and this showed with Burrows second again with a time six seconds slower, Chapman moved up one position after Auricht had a lose dose to the finish, foutth was Bulmer followed by Svenson and Bentley, Terry Rose had some electrical problems in his V6 turbo Honda Jimco and crossed the line to record a time which would give him seventh position for the statt of the race. Section 1 -Three Laps The race was scheduled to statt at 12.30pm and still no rain, the dark overcast sky still looked as if rain wasn't far away, little to no wind to blow the very thick dust off the course, Rentsch up until Lap 2 had a dust free run until he caught up to the slower vehicles in the field, he managed to pass most of the slower vehicles, is first lap of three was quick leaving Burrows with a thick blanket of dust on nearly all sections of the course, Chapman was suffer-ing with the same problem and was slow, bunch-ing up the very fast field behind him, Bulmer was quick but could not find a place to pass Continued on page 48 atthew Coleman, seen here in his Chevy powered Holden, took the Class 5, Unlimited 2WD win with apparent ease. f.866.1/W.STUl=I= • f.866.897.BB~~ usty Times December 2005 Page 47
