Trail Notes ... CORR COURSE USE EXTENSIONS -The short course off road tracks in Antigo, Wisconsin, Bark River, Michigan and Crandon, Wisconsin will continue their tradition of bringing the CORR Lucas Oil Series in 2005 to the fans in the Midwest. The Antigo Kiwanis Club will host CORR racing on June 11-12, the Bark River Lions Club will host the CORR Lucas Oil Series event August 13-14 and the Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run at the Crandon International Off Road Raceway will take place June 25-26. The BorgWarner World Championships will be on Labor Day Weekend, September 3-4 at the Crandon facility. Both Crandon and Bark River signed deals with CORR for dates in 2006 as well. The Crandon International Off Road Raceway celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2004. The Bark River Off Road Raceway has hosted off road racing for over 25 years. For more information on Bark River or Crandon, visit www.upoffroad 100 (Bark River) (Crandon) For information on the CORR Series go to A ARWBA AUTO RACING ALL-AMERICA TEAM -In some of the .rl.closest voting ever for the annual Auto Racing All-America Team, 15 have been chosen in seven categories by members of the motorsports press. Vote totals are not released until after the AARWBA banquet. At that time, the driver receiving the most votes, regardless of category, will be announced as the 35th winner of the Jerry Titus Award, in motor racing, the equivalent of the Heisman Trophy. The First Team is: OPEN WHEEL - Tony Kanaan, Sebastien Bourdais, STOCK CAR -Kurt Busch, Jimmie Johnson, ROAD RACING -Ron Fellows*, Max Papis/Scott Pruett, DRAG RACING -John Force, Tony Schumacher, SHORT TRACK - Steve Kinser, Bobby East, TOURING SERIES -Martin Truex, Jr., Bobby Hamilton, AT LARGE -Bill Auberlen *, Thiago Medeiros. Second T earn is: OPEN WHEEL - Buddy Rice, Pa.ul Tracy, STOCK CAR - Jeff Gordon, Kasey Kahne, ROAD RACING - Paul Gentilozzi*, Tommy Kendall*, DRAG RACING - Greg Anderson, Clay Millican, SHORT TRACK -Danny Lasoski, Jay Drake, TOURING SERIES -Kyle Busch, Frank Kimmel, AT LARGE - Scott Speed, Rob MacCachren. MacCachren said," This certainly wasn't my best year in desert racing , but we did accomplish most of our goals and it is especially an honor to be recognized by AARWBA without winning a SCORE Class Championship. We just keep plugging along and win our share of races, it is an honor that we don't take lightly and we accept on behalf of the entire MacCachren Motorsports Team. I know it's a cliche, but we wouldn't be where we are without our great crew." Other off roaders who have been recognized by AARWBA in the past include: Manny Esquerra, Rod Hall, Troy Herbst, Marty Lerner, Rick Mears, Roger Mears, Ri<!h Minga, Larry Ragland, Malcolm Smith and Ivan Stewart. We too were pleased to see Rob Mcu:Cachren recognized for his driving talent and his winning ways in off road racing. The * denotes an SCCA driver. VARTEK OFF-ROAD & HUNTER MOTORSPORTS BONUS$ -J.'-r<ARTEK Off-Road, a major Southern California automotive aftermarket superstore/machine shop and Hunter Motorsports, a Northern California desert racing team are both posting special purses for the SCORE 2005 Desert Series.

The monies will be divided up in $25,000, $15,000 and $10,000 to the top three overall points leader from the 2005 five SCORE Desert Race Series. Kartek owner Roy Dehban made the announcement after presenting a $10,000 bonus check to Brian Jeffrey, the 2004 SCORE Desert Series Overall Point Champion.

In a press release received here last week Oshkosh Truck is teaming up with Rockwell Collins to develop Oshkosh's second generation, self navigating robotic TerraMax vehicle to compete in the Pentagon sponsored $ 2 million 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge. Based solely on sensor data, the vehicle must traverse a 17 5 mile course from Barstow to Las Vegas, making its own decisions on route planning, obstacle avoidance and speed1. without the aid of any human intervention. During the next 12 months a scientific team will undertake an effort to give the TerraMax the intelligence it needs. The platform for TerraMax is the combat proven Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement· (MTVR), originally built for the U.S. Marine Corps. We know that ace reporter Judy Smith is anxiously awaiting the starting gun, scheduled for October 8, 2005. Stay tuned here for the latest in DARPA news. ~ RALLY -The Dakar Rally will be underway, in fact, it will be LJ over when you read this, but we thought you'd like to see some statistics, compliments of Clive Skilton, the JeepSpeedMeister. Last year there were 595 vehicles entered in the rally, 1,250 people were registered to drive, co-drive, navigate, whatever.

Mickey was one of the true promoters of the off road racing sport, starting with the founding of SCORE and the promotion of so many short course stadium races through the years. Mickey, and his wife, Trudy, went to an untimely end many years ago and this then is the end of his one major enterprise. A good thought for Mickey and Trudy would never be out of order. Amen.

BITD HENDERSON'S TERRIBLE 300 weyhrich Wins season Closer B-y Jud-y Smith Photos: Trackside Photo The Brothers Weyhrich, Gary and Mark drove their Tube Specialties car to a resounding victory, 1" Class 1, 1" overall! The first annual Henderson's Ter-rible 300 produced by the Best In The Desert, was won overall by Gary Weyhrich in his Chevy VB Junco. The race, on the first weekend in December, was headquartered in Henderson, but actually situated south ofBoulder City, off Highway 95, and east of the McCullough Mountain Range. Pre-race festivities, including live bands, happened on Water Street in Henderson proper, with sign up and the drivers' meeting taking place in the Convention Center. The BITD laid out two courses: one for the bikes and quads and another for the cars and trucks. The bikes and quads started at 7 a.m., ran their first loop on the car/ truck course, but then were shunted off to their own play area. The cars and trucks started at 8:30 and once theywere moving, the two groups never came into contact with one an-other. There was a big infield set up for the four wheeied vehides, which in-cluded a snaky" short-course" with sev-eral jumps, pit rows on both sides, and a long straight on the way out. The Henderson folks had put up a grand-stand, butdidn'tgetitaitnedquite right, so itmostlywentunused. Itdidn'tmat-ter, as there was plenty of room for folks to park; set up their folding chairs and settle in to watch the fun. The weather was nippy most of the day, so many people just watched from inside the comfort of their motorhomes or SUVs. The car/ truck course was 63 miles long, and started near the dry lake in Eldorado Valley, then swept westward to the edges of Jean Ory Lake. It was thought to be smooth and fast when the day started, but rocky, with one area already nicknamed "the rock gar-den." By the time they'd done a couple of laps, it was no longer considered "smooth" by anyone with litnited sus-pension. There were three pit areas out on the course and the Main Pit area at the start/finish. Each vehicle had ten hours to complete the required num-ber of laps. The faster classes did five laps, while some of the litnited classes ran only four. The BITD had Time Trials for any Gary Dircks and Mark Porter drove their Trick Truck Ford to first place in the Unlimited Truck Class, third overall. car/truck racers who cared to enter, and as a result of his fastest time, Kyle Taylor and his Ford Trick Truck would be first on the road. Chuck Hovey was to start right behind him in his 1500 Junco, followed by a string of Class 1500 cars, and then ninth and tenth fastest, Curt LeDuc in his Ford Class 8000 truck and Todd Wyllie in his Chevy Class 8000 Truck. One Class 1000 (Class 10 in SCORE), the Chenowth of Shawn Croll and Darren Ebberts, and one 1600, the Fraley of Rob MacCachren, made it into the top 20 qualifiers who would start at the front of the pack. The 1500 class, with 11 starters, was required to run five laps. As they came around the first time the lead belonged to Pat Dean in his Chenowth. He had just a minute on the next three racers, who were tied: Gary Weyhrich in a Jimco, Kelby Pepper in a Toyota Jimco, and Chuck Hovey in his V4 powered J imco. A tight race was shap-ing up. On the next lap Hovey had the lead, but had only two minutes on Weyhrich, who fmished the lap on a shredded rear tire. Steve Sourapas had his Junco in third, another three min-utes back, and B.J. Richardson was fourth, a minute later in John Gaughan's Chevy Bunderson. On the third lap Hovey held the lead, with Weyhrich four minutes behind him. Sourapas lost his power steering and it took about a half hour to get things fixed again. Steve and Ray Croll moved their Junco into third place, and Dean was now fourth. He had decided to pass Hovey at some point. He said, "I think I got impatient" and the barrel rolled the car. When he landed he'd had three flat tires, and he'd had to drive about a mile on the flats to get things fixed. He said, "We had the lead by 15 feet! It was a good wreck." Hovey led through the fourth lap also, with three minutes on Weyhrich, who drove all the way. He was starting to have some problems with second gear. In third it was Bob Lofton in his Junco, and Pepper, who had some "throttle body problems" and was run-ning at less than full power now, was fourth. High drama developed on the last lap. Hovey lost his transmission. He had a spare (actually, the one he'd used in the 1000 just two weeks before this race), but he couldn't get to it. His crew did some earnest pleading with Curt LeDuc's crew, and LeDuc agreed to tow him in. He made sure that Hovey still had his power steering, because, he said, he was going to need it. It wasn't going to be a slow trip. LeDucwas leading his class also. So, as the Class 1500 cars started to arrive at the fmish line, Hovey got the ride of his life at race speed on a tow strap behind LeDuc in a Class 8 truck. He said, "rocks were bouncing off my helmet". And one of those rocks apparently clobbered a brake line, but no one noticed that. When he arrived at his pit the crew was ready to remove and replace the transmission. He needed to finish to have any chance of a points championship, and he needed to finish in front of Pat Dean. It didn't lookgood. The Class 8 win went to Curt LeDuc and his sons, Todd and Kyte, they were 4th overall, seen here slightly airborne. The Staats clan, Steven, Alex and Ryan drove their Ford to the Pro Truck win with almost 45 minutes in hand at the flag. Weyhrichcrossed thefinishlinewith a time of 5:27:43 to take the overall win as well as the Class 1500 victory. He said his second gear was "toast", and the course "went away", but other than that he'd had a "real clean race, with no flats". Fourteen minutes later it was Bob Lofton's car, with his son Justin at the wheel. Justin had done only part of the last lap, just getting a taste of driving in an Unlitnited car. They'd had only a couple of flats on Flyin' high, Mike Coleman and Tim Lawrence took the Class 7100P Second in Class 1, second overall was the Jimco of Bob and Justin Allen and Scott Gerber with Little Joe Aguirre were second in Class win in their Ford pickup, their competition was 25 minutes behind.

But Derek did. In third place it was Sexson and Edgar, talking about how many rocks there were on the course. And in fourth it was La Roza and Ochoa. Actually, their time was 10:01: 15, so although they did five la~, theywere a minute and 15 seconds over time. In the Stock full size pickup Class 8100, there were four trucks, but Randy Merritt got only as far as half-way through the infield before he broke an axle. While he dealt with that prob-lem the rest of them went on. Greg Foutz had the lead in his Ford, with two minutes on Charley McDowell in another Ford. In third it was Chad Hall in his Hi Hummer, and Merritt, once repaired was fourth, about four hours down. McDowell moved into the lead on the second lap, with Foutz second, only four minutes back, with an interesting pattern of wrinkles on one side of the truck, where it had been laid upon the ground. Hall ran third, three minutes later. Merritt had got to the second pit on the second lap and developed seri-ous electrical problems. A little quick math showed him that he'd already run out of time to make the 10 hour time limit, so he'd parked the truck. McDowell led through the third lap, finding that "rock garden" to be "pretty rough". Hall moved into second place, thinking that while the course had been nice for a couple of laps, it was becom-ing "awful" rough as time went on. Foutz was a half hour down in third. On the third lap, McDowell con-tinued to lead, having no serious trouble. Hall held second place, and Foutz went to work to replace his trans-mission. He was watching the dock ner-vously. McDowell, with only one flat to mar his day, sailed on steadily and took the win. Hall was second, reporting nothing serious, and in third it was Foutz. His crew and various fans had worriedly watched the clock as he tried to get to the finish line in time. He radi-oed that he had a leaky brake line and would need to slow a bit, and the min-utes kept slipping away. Finally, his lights could be seen at the end of the infield section, but everyone knew he'd need three minutes to get through it. And he had just three minutes left. Ulti-mately, Foutz crossed the finish line with just 20 seconds to spare, finishing in the time of9:59:40, taking third place, but winning the season championship. Class 4100 started next. Josh Hall put his H2 Hummer into the lead early, but he had only a minute on both John R. Sunderland in his Ford and Marc Stein in another Ford. Hall's Hum-mer had barely made it back from Baja to the shop, where it needed some seri-ous work, since he'd rolled it over down Dusty Times ••

On the second lap Stein moved to the front, with two minutes on Hall, who had nine minutes on Sunderland's car. Sunderland broke some rear tie rods (three sets), which cost him about an hour in total, and Stein broke a left front A-arm and had to replace it. He lost an hour and a half. Hall just kept moving along, having just "one little problem with a tire", when he hit a boulder. He went on to take the win, saying we "had a blast!" Sunderland, who handed over to his son,JohnA, for the final two laps, was second, about an hour down. And a little over another hour behind them came Stein, for third place. In Class 7100, there were three trucks, all Fords. Kevin Davis lost sec-ond gear right off the start, and lost a good deal of time trying to fix it. Tim Lawrence went into the lead in Mike Coleman• s truck, but he had only five minutes on Wayne Demonja, who came down from Colorado. Charley McDowell and Chad Cola had a great run, they took the Class 8100P win in their neat looking Ford truck. On the second lap Lawrence stayed in front, while Demonja started to have problems, and Davis moved into sec-ond place, but two hours down to the lead truck. Demonja was another 40 minutes back, and then he didn't do anymore laps. Coleman did the final three laps in his truck, and he had "no flats, no nothin' -and just changed a heim on the steering and had to flip the fuel pump back and forth". They took the win, and were the only truck to get to the finish line.

Jonathan Swift and dad John had a nice run, they took the Class 3000P win with ease, seen here at touchdown. Olliges and Rob MacOi.chren were off to a bad start when the rear differen-tial exploded right off the start line. Their truck was back in the pit before the others had left the line. Repairs cost them 48 minutes. In the mean-time, there was a tie at the front of the pack, and Aaron Dixon, Ford, Carl Fitts, Ford, and John Webster, Ford, were "leading". Jerry Fisher, Ford, broke a spindle at Mile 49, and that was the end of his race. On the second lap Webster went into the lead, but he had only a minute on Fitts, who had a minute on the Dixons, who were having no problems so far. Lance Magin, Ford, disappeared on this lap, and Ron Isaacson, in a Nissan, lost about two and a half hours, and then completed no more laps. On the third lap Fitts and the Dixons were tied, and in front. And new Olliges and MacCachren had moved up to third, but almost 4 5 min-utes behind the leaders still. They were dealing with an exhaust leak. Webster was now about 13 minutes behind them, and he'd had broken motor mounts, a broken exhaust, and more to come. The Dixon truck led through the fourth lap,Aaron's brother, Ian, now driving. They'd had a rear fender come loose and had stopped to tie it down, but nothing else had gone wrong. Fitts was second, about four minutes down and MacCachren was third, "driving the s-out of it", and only 24 minutes Charlie Peltzer and Kevin Reardon took the JeepSpeed Pro win, but it was close, their competition was a mere 69 seconds behind. The Class 7200P win went to Randy Sorenson and Joe Stone, seen here in their great looking truck on the way to the checkers. further back. The Dixons' luck held, and they went on to take the win, their first this year, and first in the new truck. Chaos broke out behind them. MacOi.chren and Olliges broke an axle, Fitts got to the final rum and broke a spindle, and Webster continued to have trouble, adding a broken radius arm to his list of grievances. When asked what had happened, he said, "You name it!" Ultimately, MacCachren and Olliges got fixed and to the finish the quickest, and took second place. Fitts was second about eight minutes behind him, and Webster was third, just six minutes short of the cutoff time. The Dixons got the champion-ship. Class 3100 was next off the line, with four entries, all Fords. Scott Dou-glas went into the lead early, and had two minutes at the end of the first lap, with John Holmes running second and Mike Falkosky in third place. David Moore, who drives with hand controls, ran fourth, but they were all within eight minutes of one another. The race stayed fairly tight through the second lap, with Douglas only a minute up on Holmes, then Falkosky, and Moore. No one was having any problems. Douglas, Holmes and Falkosky ran that way to the end of the day. Dou-glas said he had, "No problems what-soever." He has a 63 gallon fuel cell in his vehicle, so he didn't even have to The JeepSpeed Stock went to Giti Gowfand and Jeff Zimmerman, they had 45 minutes in hand when the checkers flew. stop for fuel. Holmes finished with no brakes at all after driving on a front flat the final 10 miles, about 10 min-utes behind Douglas. In third, Falkosky said he was a "little disappointed - I didn't go fast enough. I pretty much had a perfect day and got third!" Moore got partway through his fourth lap, but couldn't make it to the finish line. There were five Sportsman vehicles, and Daniel B. Bolton, from Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, with team members, Daniel R. Bolton, Bradley Bolton and Kevin Repan, led at the end of the first lap, in a Ricochet. They had 11 min-utes on Michael Ahlmeyer and Mike Ponte in a VW. Then it was Don, Dean, Daryl and Wyatt Blakely, in a Jimco, but they'd already lost an hour, and behind them, another hour down, were Gary, Derek and Stewart Dixon in a Ford. The Chevrolet of Mark Por-ter and Jeff Darland hadn't gone any distance at all, but would probably have been able to get to the team Trick Truck if needed. The Boltons led through the sec-ond lap, and they had two hours on Ahlmeyer and Ponte at that point, with the Dixon vehicle another 25 minutes down. The Blakelys had dis-appeared by then. On the third lap Ahlmeyerwas leading, but he was also the only one left running, for a while. None of them made it through the fourth lap, or back to the finish area to report about what went wrong. In between the 3100 class and the Sportsmen, there were 17 JeepSpeed cars. Ten of them were in the "modi-fied" division, and the rest were "stock". They run as two separate classes, but all were required to do only four laps. These are all Jeep Cherokees. In the modified division, only Jus-tin Mamer failed to finish the frrst lap. A disappointment for sure, after the good season he'd been having. Barrie Thompson went into the lead, with five minutes on Charlie Peltzer who ran second. Then Steve Thomasson and John Copitas were on the same minute, another three minutes back. Casey Currie ran fifth, another three minutes back and on the same minute with Billy Bunch. On the second lap Thompson dis-appeared, and Peltzer went into the lead, with three minutes on Currie and Bryan Hardy and Ron Coleman were third in the JeepSpeed Pro The Lair Clan, Rex, Todd, Chris and Josh took home the bronze Not a good day for Kyle Taylor, his Ford Trick Truck never saw the class, seen here just after landing. medal in the JeepSpeed Stock class. finish line at the BITD Terrible 300.

Currie was solidly in sec-ond place, and now John Coleman ran third, an hour back. Copitas lost a couple of hours with some difficulty, and Steve Ghamari came up to fourth. Bunch disappeared. Peltzer ran steadily to the finish and took the win in six hours and 11 min-utes. Currie, who was to celebrate his 21st birthday the day after the race, fin-ished in second place only a minute and nine seconds behind him. In third itwas Coleman, who said he'd liked the track because there was "a little bit of every-thing." And Copitas was fourth, an hour and 21 minutes behind third, and declined to stop and talk. In the Stock division all of them made the first three laps, and it was Tim Hayosh in the lead, with two minutes on David Munsterman, who was followed by James Hunt. Giti Gowland, whose vehicle still bears the scars of a tough roll-over his wife, Andrea, performed while pre-run-ning for an MDR event, held fourth place. The paint job, a multi-color fantasy, made their vehicle a standout midst all the solemn dark colors of most of the rest. On the second lap Hayosh con-tinued his lead, with eight minutes on Munsterman, but now Gowland was third, and Hunt fourth. Rex Lair, driving the only four cylinder in the series, had blown a heater hose at Mile 2 and lost all his water, which cost him an hour and 15 minutes. He was moving along at a good clip now, but had some time to make up. On the third lap Hayosh had just two minutes on Gowland, and then it was about 22 minutes back to Munsterman. Hunt's dad, Jim, was now driving and they were fourth. They'd blown a couple of tires, and also had shock mount trouble. Lair was fifth, Jonathan Gymer was sixth, and Bill Frey ran seventh at this point, nearly four hours down to the lead car. None had dropped out. But Hayosh disappeared on the final lap. Gowland moved to the front and took the win. He reported he'd had two flats, the rear had been "gone all day", and he had "no brakes". He was, his crew reported, ill, and had been throwing up all day. Not a pretty picture. They were nearly an hour in front of the second place car, and that turned out to be Lair in his four cylin-der,. Less is more. They said they'd run the entire season on the same set ofBFG tires, and had no flats all sea-son long. Third place went to the Hunts, who'd had to borrow a tire. Their res-cuer had been Munsterman. Said Hunt, apologetically, "we borrowed a tire from 1771 and then beat them!"

When building a brand new car there is always a need to dial in the car. The brand new car owned by John Gould and Joe Myers spent much of the evening until lam the night before the race dialing in the shocks. Known for building sand rails, Playtech owner, John Gould brought out his new race car. Joe Myers, a former Sheriff Depart-ment driving instructor, drove two laps. This was his first time to drive in a race. Using a Cadillac LS-1 motor, they fin-ished in third place. A black truggy driven by Tun and Rick Scalzo ran consistent laps. A bro-ken wheel bearing on the fourth lap took over an hour to repair. The brothers finished in fourth place. Jennifer Clemison driving a four seat buggy was fifth. Driving a newly bought A-arm Chenowth, Tim Llndsey with brother and co<lriver, Jeremy broke two miles from the start/finish line on the first lap. A broken rear pivot box put him out of contention foreseeing expen-sive repairs on the horiwn. Winning three races this year and the class championship, Wayne Nosala captured the Class 10 win with an hour lead on the second place finisher. Class 10 is a combination of A-arm (Class 10) and beam (Clas.5 12) buggies. Wayne drew the second to last starting posi-tion. Six cars started the race. Wayne drove his blue single seat Jimco the en-tire race.Two rear flats slowed his effort down. On the last lap a flat tire 15 miles from the finish line along with the throttle stuck wide open from sticks and brush in the cockpit CORE Pit D was able to make the repairs. The team of Ryan Harbottle and Dan Martin drove a single seat A-arm Chenowth to a second place finish. Dan said "Ryan was trying to pass Wayne Nosala when he spun the car out, hard." Dan, who is known to get in the driver's seat of just about any class of race car, said "My days of driving a Class 9 are over." Looking at Dan who is about six feet, five inches tall, you can see why he would say that. Dan drove the last half of the race, broke a steering linkage where it was repaired in a remote pit. Other entries in this class had troubles that kept them from seeing the checkered flag. Brian Walsh, driving an A-arm Jimco started off looking very fast. After three laps, the car was no-where to be found. Jason Batulis driv-ing the remarkable Prep by Jake car was looking very fast for the first 15 miles. Jason had to stop when a fan belt came off. With the belt replaced, he made up time until the sea:md lap when the trans-mission failed, ending the day. Behind the wheel of a yellow beam buggy, Craig lspas was only able to finish one lap. Art Velasco was unable to complete a lap. Randy Ross was ready to start, in fact he was staging when a cracked head was noticed on the car. Rather than do damage to the motor on his two seat beam Class 12 car, Randy parked and Dusty Times -,

Erik Earnest had a long day, finish-ing in second place. He has a brand new car. Erik said, "We haven't had a chance to dyno the engine and tune it 100%. On Thursday evening we were up to midnight tuning the best we could for the conditions out there." With the help of the other two Open Bugs, Erik tried to tune the motor but complications made it impossible to in the middle of the desert. Erik decided to take it easy. Second off the line, Erik went approxi-mately four miles until the lower front shock mount tore off the arm. This re-pair took quite a while to perform but determined to finish, Erik and his crew repaired the car to get back in the race. He finished the first lap. On the second lap, he lost a fan belt. That was replaced. A co-driver change was performed on the third lap. In the process the collec-tor came off, taking out both the belts in the car. When that was repaired, Erik drove on. Then came Mile 35 where the power steering ram broke off. He said, "Now we know where the weaker points are located and we can correct them." Bill Markel took the Class 1 honors with four minutes in hand, he missed the overall win by three minutes. Craig Reynolds, seen here at speed was the big winner in the Challenger Class, he ran trouble free this race. Erik plans on racing next year. Class champion,John Criswell and Steve Griffith divided driving duties. The Bug suffered a broken header on lap 3. A decision to park the car was made. Class 8 was a variety of different types of trucks. Bob Scheiner drove his GMC truck at a race two weeks before this one to a fifth place finish. Bob then rraveled to Glamis for Thanksgiving weekend. He wanted to use the truck to run around the sand dunes. He then brought out the truck for this race. Bob did all this with no prep on the truck. Bob also has been on the same set of Mickey Th-ompson tires. The first place finish took Bob Scheiner had a good day, he ran fast and consistent and was the Class 8 winner with nine minutes in hand.

Guy drove the frrst part of the race and turned the car over to Billy. Billy knew that the championship along with the win was in his sights. He pushed the Bug to the limit. On the final lap about one mile from the finish, he rolled the Bug. Billy got the car to the finish in second. Billy was a bit dazed from the impact and the team kept a close eye on him. The Seveda car took second in points. The Norris Bug, father, Mike and son, David, came in third place. Mike drove to the first pit and handed the car over to David for the rest of the race. He had two co-drivers for the race, Garrett Osteen and Britney Sanchez. David and Garrett had some down time while they stopped and helped friend and fellow racer, Joey Westhoff roll his Bug back over on its wheels. Fourth place finisher, David Stevenson suffered a flat on the first lap. He spent the third lap battling the Norris Bug for position on the course. David made a pit stop for fuel on the fourth and final lap. David plans on racing the 2005 season. Class 9 had a strong showing with ten cars at the starting line. The last race was the final decision as to the point's champion. The winner of the championship was Doug Silcock. The winner of the race was brothers, Kevin and Andy Lumsden. They were driving a brand new car and this was the first race. The two had a trouble free race and plan on racing the 2005 season. On the first lap Doug Silcock stopped to help a fellow 9 car racer who had rolled and was sruck upside down. Even though they were upside down, they insisted that Doug keep going. They knew he was racing for the points. About ten miles afrer that incident, he got a flat. Doug drove about five miles to a pit where it was changed. Keeping a steady pace and making only one stop before the finish line, Doug took sec-ond place and the championship. Finishing in third and second in the points race, Barstow local, Elizabeth Metzger and her large family have made a good showing this past year. Starting first off the starting line, Chris Dunn driving his yellow Bug finished in fourth place. One lone Class 11 VW Bug driven by Ed Pittman completed the three laps required for his class. At the finish line, the Bug suffered from a broken frame and the shocks went away. Ed was laughing when he said, "I had a great time."

GLEN HELEN BAJA CuP CHALLENGE Feldkamp Wins By Judy Smith Photos: Trackside Photo Keeping it in the family, Buddy Feldkamp was the big winner, 1•1 overall in Race #2 and 1•1 in Class 1, seen here ready to land in the fog. Buddy Feldkamp outlasted the com-petition to take the victory at the inau-gural Baja Cup Challenge event at Glen Helen Raceway in Devore in late No-vember. When Bud Feldkamp decided to schedule this event, he pictured racers who'd just come from the Baja 1000, bringing their cars as is, straight to his short course track for some racey fun and relaxation. He also thought it might be a good way to say "thanks" to some crewmembers, by letting them have a try at racing. It seemed like a good idea tthe time, butdidn'tworkoutaswellashe'd hoped. The weekend after the Baja 1000 was also the weekend after Thanksgiv-ing-it drew some of the potential racers to the dunes, to the desert or to Grandma's house. And then the weather played a dirty trick. It had turned bitterly cold while everyone was in I.a Paz, snow fell in places that had never seen snow, including Glen Helen, and folks were less inclined to plan a Saturday outdoors than they might have been. It was too bad, because Feldkamp had planned an entertaining event, and created a new, long course for the plea-sure of the racers. On the morning of race day it was im[XlSSible to see the surrounding moun-tains. A bank of clouds settled in and a dreary, persistent drizzle started. As the clouds shifted it often became difficult to see the top of the hills around which, and upon which the racers were driv-Page 30 ing. The course was 2. 7 miles long and wound around its old track, then crossed the entry road and curled around the pit area. There were two tough uphills, one on a narrow canyon, and a precipitous downhill with a kicker about a third of the way down that JX)pped the rear wheels up into the air at a slight angle. One very tight hairpin in front of the grandstands was a "gotcha" for several racers, and in gen-eral the course was fun and it was fun to watch the drivers navigating it. The schedule was for two two-hour races, separated by a short event, called a "Legends Race". Feldkamp hoped to get some older racers to crawl out of their recliners and come out with their old cars to have some fun with him. The first of the two longer events was for a mix of classes, including 5-1600s, 7s, 7, 7S, and 8 trucks, and Mini Mags and the afternoon race was for Classes 1, 10 and 1/2-1600. Each contestant in the long races was required to make two pit stops, and to change a tire in each of them. If they hadn't brought spares, a contestant could just take a tire off, set it down and then put it back on the car. The object was to add some excitement for the spectators. The first race got off to a good start at about 11:30, but for Kathy Fay, in her 7S truck, it wasn't terrific. She rolled over in that grandstand hairpin, and lost three or four minutes, while some helpful folks ran out and worked to-(951) 354 8Z7Z gether to get her back on her wheels. Once going again she was dead last, and not a happy camper. A few laps later one of the Mini Mags stalled in the narrow can)On and caused a traffic jam. There were soon six racers parked and waiting to get moving again so they could go on with their race. At about that time the weather turned re-ally foul and it started to sprinkle. A few cars decided to just eliminate the can-yon and that quirky downhill all-to-gether, while others waited patiently 'til the blockage was cleared and then went on. After about ten minutes the course workers had everything clear. The score-keepers tracked the drivers who'd gone around the blockage. In the meantime, Ken Schertzerand Shane Campbell, in a neat Class 5 Bug, had got to the front and just stayed there. They came around lap after lap, looking good and although they were the only Class 5 car, they were leading the whole shebang overall. Schemer, who built the car himself, was pleased with its performance, and happy to find he'd won overall. He said, "It did get hard to see for a while." Biker and Michael Sherlock led Class 7 with their Ford for a couple of laps, but then, as the motor started to sound unwell, Billy Manroy took over in his Ford. But he managed to complete only five laps before he came to grief and had to have a tractor tow him off the track. Jack Mitman and Lou Fornarotto, in still another Ford, got off to a slow start, February 2005 JJ Hanson had a good day, he drove his good looking truck to the Class 8 win, 3"' overall in Race #1 at Glen Helen. Jack Mitman is ready for touchdown, he took the gold medal in Class 7 at the very foggy and rainy Glen Helen event. two laps down, but once running kept it moving and at the finish found them-selves the Class 7 winners. The Sherlocks finished second. In the 5-1600 class they had a good battle. Guy Savedra was new to short course racing in his Baja Bug, and had the wrong gearing, but managed to look a little better each lap. He had Brianna Tyler riding for the first half, and then she got out and Lorenzo Lorenzana got in to ride, so they took some extra time for a driver change. Christopher and Jonathan Moreno, who for some rea-son were wearing green hair for this weekend, sailed on smoothly and strongly in the lead in that class. Kevin Stevenson and Howard Baca struggled some, and had a lot of down time. The Morenos and Savedra had a good race, and Savedra got up close, but couldn't get around them, although it was obvi-ous he was pushing hard. The Morenos took the win, finishing fourth overall, and Savedra was second and fifth over-all. Doug and Ryan Petterson had a fun day, they drove their great looking truck to first place in Class 7S at the Baja Cup Challenge. Navigating on radar through the fog, Michael Parr drove his Mini Mag to a great class win at the Glen Helen short course even. Dusty Times

third. The Legend race was shortened to only three laps because by then it was raining fairly hard and things were get-ting muddy. Feldkamp, who was en-tered, was reported not to want to "get muddy". And who could blame him? He and his I..S6 powered Penhall started and finished in front, so he probably stayed fairly clean. Too bad there weren't more cars, it would have been fun. Ken Parr, father of Chris and Michael drove the surviving Mini Mag in the event, his first time in one of the little machines, and reportedly "had a ball" in spite of the mud and rain. Ken Schertzer made it look easy, he flew his powerful Class 5 Bug to the class win and to 1st overall in Race #1. First in Class 5-1600, Christopher Moreno drove his great looking bug to fourth overall as well in Race #1. The second two hour race started at 2:20, and by that time the flag that tops the hill on the course couldn't be seen. The spectators knew approximately where the rac-ers were by watching their tail lights disappear into the fog. The fans huddled under an assortment of In the Mini Mag, brothers Chris and Michael Parr dueled for several laps until Michael got stuck and caused the jam up. Then, once moving again, they were running close together, and having a great time racing each other until, on about the 16th lap, Chris lost his trans-mission and Michael went on alone to win the class. He was serond on the over-all standings. Chris got credit for sec-ond Mini Mag and ninth overall In Class 8 there were just two trucks, the Dodge of Mike Defeliece and J .J. Hanson, in a late entry, brand unknown. They ran cheek by jowl for the first sev-eral laps, but then Defeliece started to have problems. He lost a lap or two several times, and, while he was there at the finish, he came up short. Hanson took the Class 8 win with 20 laps com-pleted, and was in third place overall. Defeliece was second in Class 8 and sev-enth overall with only 16 laps done. Class 7S had three trucks: Brian Cannon, Doug Petterson and Kathy Fay Dusty Times -all in Fords. As mentioned above, Fay was off to a bad start. Cannon led early, and then fell back as Petterson took over the lead and Fay struggled with some mechanical gremlins. It was a seesaw battle between Cannon and Petterson, but Cannon lost three laps late in the race, and Petterson rose to the top to Kathy Fay is ready tor takeoff, Kathy finished second in Class 7S in her Ford, she was eighth overall in Race #1.

He was second overall Dennis Boyle fin-ished only seven laps, for second place. An hour into the race it was impos-sible for spectators to read the numbers on the sides of the cars. But anyone with ears could differentiate the Class 1 cars. Buddy Feldkamp's I.S6 has a singing note, while Boyle's sounded more like a standard V8 and the front engine Binz T ruggy rumbled and roared, and even-tually did a cartwheel, landed on its side and wiped out the front suspension. It was towed away by the tractor after completing eight laps. Byabout3:15 in the afternoon, the spectators started to abandon ship. You couldn't blame them. Everyone had vi-sions of another snowstorm arriving to clog up the freeways, or floods roaring across the 15 freeway. No one wanted to stick around and chance being stuck. The racers were slowing, adding five or six seconds to every lap. And sud-denly, it became apparent that there were only five cars left moving. The offi-cials came to the same decision that the spectators had, at about that time. Enough was enough. They started wav-ing the white flag at the survivors, al-though it was about a half hour short of the planned two hours. Finally, when the mud-covered fmishers had made their last loop, thewinnerwas Feldkamp, with 18 completed laps. Boyle, although not moving at the finish, was second, with 13 laps done. His car was "buried" out in the muddy distance somewhere. The officials couldn't wait for the few remaining moving cars to get in so they could head out with the tractor to res-cue the various stuck vehicles. The Boyle brothers were towed in together. As the cars cleared the track, almost all the spectators were gone, and at first glance there seemed to be no one left in the grandstands. But then, up at the very top, where the view is best, we saw three figures. Each wearing a hat and a trash bag for protection from the ele-ments, standing and watching until the last car had stopped moving. I twas Brian Jeffrey and his two sons, three of off road racing' s biggest fans. And they were right. The racing was fun, and it was an entertaining show.

WHIPLASH MOTORSPORTS Wickenburg ··Rookie'' Earns overall Victory By Mike Del Col Photos: Trackside Photo It was a close race in Class 10 but when the smoke cleared it was Ed Beard showing the other guys the way to the checkers.

He really isn't a rookie ... he's a veteran. Caesar Fuentes is one of the most recogniz-able, most well known Whiplash rac-ers around. He's also pretty darn fast at the SCORE events he attends, and is always in the hunt. In Whip-lash, he's competed at nearly every active race track, and owns multiple overall wins earned over the years. Caesar earned a pretty special win at Wickenburg, as he has never raced the Wickenburg course. This race was different from years past, with an average turnout, and a Class I car leading the way. This course is the tightest, and roughest of the Whiplash circuit, and stories usu-ally abound with injured and sick drivers. That didn't materialize this year, thankfully. There were very few rollovers, and very few drivers and passengers bailing out of the cars just a few laps into the race. The course was also fairly wet this year, and the lack of dust may have been a posi-tive factor. It wasn't without con-troversy either, with fisticuffs nearly breaking out after the race. Tempers were high, but cooler heads pre-vailed.

Mike Doherty had his Chevy with new powerplant at Wickenburg. Mike is racing for a points championship, and was ad-mittedly taking it easy on the day. Mike had more than a couple of the buggy guys up in arms over his ca-sual pace on the day, with several complaining about having trouble getting around the big truck. Wickenburg is a buggy course. Mike's Chevy was also spewing gaso-line along the way, and was making some drivers nervous with fuel splashing out of the big truck over every bump, and every mile.

Jeffro Wells drove Nollan Blackwell's 1600 to a third place position. Jeff said the car worked really well the first lap, and then the shocks went away and so did the riqe.

The 1600 class winner had a tech-nical challenge after the race during inspection, when the third place fin-isher challenged the legality of Knupp's winning 1600 motor. A motor tear down was requested, and proved that no cheating was going on. An editorial comment here ... this always seems to happen in the Limited classes when a driver starts winning races. Whiplash has seen it in Class 9, Class 5-1600 and now in Class 1600 as well. Let's face it la-dies, Knupp knows what he's doing in 1600. He's probably got more seat time, prep time, and experience than possibly the remainder of the entire class (except maybe Bill). SO -come on -put those rule books back in your purses, quityer whining, and step it up a notch. The guy's not Su-perman, he just drives faster than the Man of Steel. Tim Wiley had a good race in the Pro 3 class earning a victory. Tim's older Jeep Cherokee ran well on the brutal course, and came away with several broken shocks for his efforts. Terry Yoakam was the big winner in the Sportsman Unlimited division. Terry was unable for comment after the race, but appears to be a new face on the Whiplash racing scene. Hopefully we will see more of him in the races to come. Red Burgin was just about two minutes behind, even February 2005 with driver and rider changes after each lap. Red was just out there hav-ing some fun, and didn't realize that he was in the hunt till it was all over. Russ Florance has the support of Albert McMullen, and debuted a new McMullen chassis 10 car in the class. The car seems to work pretty well, and the team is excited about racing and several promising sponsorship opportunities coming their way. It's got a new VW Rabbit motor for propulsion. The team wanted to thank Team Geronimo for the use of their tools. It was greatly appreci-ated. The McMullen team promised that Albert's new Trophy Truck will be in attendance in Mexico next month. . Mike Herrick snatched up a win in the Sport 10 class in his Toyota powered single seater. This car has a great history, and Mike knows how to put her thru her paces. Mike has all of his motor woes worked out, and is looking forward to the next race. His only issue on the day was losing power steering after Lap 2. Hondo Jimenez chased Mike all day long, and earned the second position in the Sport 10 class. Hondo and.the Screamin' Eagle team was pretty ex-cited about a very good run. Hondo actually ran·the first lap with his belts unclipped, after accidentally tripping open the latch on the first whoop of the race. No chance he was going to slow down to get them re-clipped. Belts? Who needs belts? Scott Cybulski managed four laps in his Honda powered racer to earn the third place spot. Scott Zimmerman completed only one lap, after break-ing all of the motor and tranny mounts in the car. He held down the flopping motor with a tow strap, af-ter the sticky throttle finally war-ranted a stop for inspection. Jeff Bracale's truck looked great in Wickenburg, and Jeff Raced to the class win in the Sport Truck division. Jeff built this 1994 Ford Lightning himself, and the truck works very well. Look for this team to make some im-provements, and graduate to the Pro 8 class next year. Jeff shares credit for his success with his wife, and with Bracale Realty Professionals who sponsor the truck. Jeff also wanted to thank brother Ron Bracale and R& T Iron Works for their support and help. Jim Saraceno was the big winner in the Sportsman Limited class over Andy Ripburger. Jim turned out three very nice laps to earn the class win. Adam Lucas churned out two laps in the Sport Mini class for the win. As mentioned, Wickenburg seemed pretty tame this year, com-pared to years past. The rain kept the dust down, and the conditions were perfect. Typically Wickenburg chews racers up and spits them out. .. but this year yielded a pretty good finish race, and some great racing. Rocky Point is also now in the his-tory books, and a story will be soon to follow. There are some close sea-son championship points races to be decided, so it should be a barn burner. As a preview ... The Melton boys put it all together. .. despite some weather that brought SNOW to northern Mexico ... ~ folks! ~ Dusty Times

ojave Desert Racing Awards2D04 By Tanna Primante Photos: Trackside Photo Greg Crew won the Donohoe True Grit Award, completing the most required laps in the season worth $1000 and he won Class 1300 honors. On December 5th, 2004 an awards banquet was held at the well facilitated, Doubletree Hotel in Rosemead, Cali-fornia for the 2004 Mojave Desert Rac-ing season. With its Christmas decor in stylish blue and silver, it gave one a feel-ing of, high-class holiday cheer as soon as you entered the hotel's lobby. Promptlyat6:00p.m. we were served our steak dinner that started with a fresh green salad with a delicious house dressing and bread. After the salad the steak entree was served with a twice-baked potato and fresh steamed veg-etables covered with brown gravy and mushrooms. The meal was finalized with a fabulous cheesecake for dessert. The awards presentation began with a few introductions of the people that make this mce class all possible. Califor-nia Off Road Vehicle Association (CORVA) President, Ed Waldheim, was introduced. Mr. Waldheim gave a very informative speech about what it actu-ally takes to be able to recreate in our California deserts. Mr. Waldheim talked about the amount of attention needed in the political aspects of California off road recreation. Our political leaders don't seem to care one way or the other about off road racing. We need to do what it takes, such as utilizing our power to vote, to make the changes needed. Mr. Waldheim has spent many years Mike Barnett took the Class 1700 honors, he had one win and three top three finishes in the 2004 season. and a vast amount of effort towards the fight for our rights. He deserves a big thank you for all the tireless work he does for desert off road racing. The first award presented, the Donohoe True Grit award, was for the driver that has completed the most re-quired laps overall for the race season. It was quite competitive throughout the year between Class 5-1600 driver Paulden Hepler, Class 11 driver Robert Henderson, and Sportsman Class 1300 Greg Crew. The last race, with the fast-est average speed, would be the deciding factor of who would be taking home this award. It was Greg Crew in his white Lucas Oil buggy. Greg was presented a trophy and a check for $1,000.00 from Donohoe Racing. The winners that were unable to at-tend the event were announced next. Between each class award presentation, raffles were held for miscellaneous prizes throughout the evening. First it was the 550 class with #567 Stephen Eavenson in third, #557 Dennis Dunn in second, and in the winner's circle for this class was #550 Paulden Hepler. Next announced was the 900 class with #980 Juan Gonzalez showing in third, placing in second was #986 Tho-mas Byma II, and in the win-spot was #973 Mike Ward.

The evening continued with the plaque presentations with the 1100 class. In third was # 1153 Leif Christensen, for second was #1115 Brian Thompson, and the winner for this class was# 1101 Robert Henderson, who received a plaque and a check. Robert handed out his own award tro-phies this evening to his crew. Just after handing the last trophy out to his girl-friend, Marjie, for keeping stats and lap times, he then took the opportunity to ask her for her hand in marriage. There was a hush through the room except for one gentleman in the crowd asking her what her answer was. Up to the mi-crophone she went answering with a big "YES." On to the 500 class that had #533 John Hays in third, #529 Jeff Nutter, and in first was #548 Scott Hewitt. The 300 class had only two contes-tants, which were #303 Tyler Stone in second and in firstwas #304SamSuhr. The 100 class had in third #101 Ronny Wilson, in second was #124 Randy Wilson, and in first was #112 Bill Wingerning who received a check along with his plaque. Sam Suhr took the Class 300 win for the season, his great looking Bronco was always a welcome sight on the course. What can you say?

CODE/RECORD RACE READY 275 Ojas Negras Ta San Felipe, B.C. Mexico By Byrle Moore Photos: Foto-Baja-Mex Kirk Kontilis had some problems during the race but he still took the Class 1 win in his heavily suspended car. Eduardo Mendez was the big Class 10 winner and he took the overall win as well at the Race Ready 275, seen here at speed. The last race of the year was the larg-est participant race of the year. Two hundred and twenty-two bikes and quads and cars and trucks started at Kilometer 39 instead of downtown Ensenada and some four to ten hours later nearly 60% of them had crossed the line just outside of San Felipe. This~• s version of the "27 5" shon-ened the first µin of the course by about 25 miles but still managed to tum it into a 27 5 mile run as the name implies. One thing about it there were no speed-ing tickets on the blacktop for the first 19 kilometers. We had nearly perfect race weather. It was a little chilly overnight on Friday, and just before sunrise and start time on Saturday. However, this writer can remember a cenain 2000 mile race in the~ 2CXX) when it got down to 17 degrees in the fields just west of Ojos Negros, so believe me the low 40's was mild Hey, I remem-ber almost a half inch of frost on my truck when I woke up that year!

Arturo Honold only had one Class 12 competitor but he had to hustle 'ti/ the last lap for the class win. 4:59:26; boys, those shift points re-ally count don't they? A little overa half an hour later the next two riders blasted into town. Francisco Septien took the second spotwith his ride of 5:31: 15 ride and just over two and a half minutes later, Rodolfo lribe, was in at 5:33:39 for third. These two guys were also sec-ond and third overall on the pro bike/ quad classes. Five more riders finished and had times. Edgar Espinoza 5:47:29, Sergio Vega 5:52:30, Jorge Perez 6:01 flat, and Jesus Heredia was in at 6: 19:37. Octavio Ascolani and Ivan Estrada started 30 seconds but broke stuff and never had times. In the Pro Quad go round Nick Destoud went 6: 17: 17 for the gold and seventh overall in bikes and quads.

Six other riders made times and they were Emmanuel K Gust I<), who went founh, Cesar Cuevas fifth, Jesus de la Rocha sixth, Luis Salgado seventh, Joel Aldrete eighth, and Gabriel Valencia was ninth in the class of then. Guess that leaves just Carlos Arce with no time, but I'll bet, "he'll be back." In the Spom;man class we had three groups: Motorcycle Sport, Motorcycle Safari and Quad Spon. Here again the top three Spom;man Overall winners came from the two wheel division. Class winner and first overall was Oscar Hale with his 6:06:59 ride.

MDR SUPERSTITION SERIES BUD LIGHT DASH 200 Deardorff Wins overall By Judy Smith Photos: Trackside Photo Mike Oeardoff had a good New Years Eve, he took the Class 10 battle and the overall win as well at the MOR Bud Light race. Mike Deardorff hustled around the 63 mile course at the Bud Light Dash and fin-ished the afternoon with the overall win in his Class 10 car. The event, the season fin-i~her f~r the if6R Superstition Series (which used to be the Fud races) drew 72 entries, on an atypical cloudy and windy day. Folks who'd stayed overnight didn't crawl out of their camp-ers and motorhomes any ear-lier than necessary, and if you didn't know where east was you wouldn't be able to tell, be-cause there was no sign of the sun. The course was a 63 mile winding trail based in the Plas-ter City West OHV area. It went around the mountains for the first time in a long time, and the course markers had to use some careful planning to avoid the worst of the muddy spots. There was an eight hour time limit, and a varied number of laps depending on the class. The fast cars were required to do four laps. Typical of the races in this area, there were places where incoming and outgoing trails were very close, and this meant good access for chase people, as well as good watching. The holiday season storms had left a lot of wet spots, and a storm was heading south on race day, but happily, it got hung up on the mountains to the west and never rained a drop on the race. The Class 1 cars started (irst, with five entries. The McMillins planned to race a full team, but one car blew a clutch two days before the race and the other lost its motor in prac-tice. That left them with only Corky McMillin's Chenowth, which hadn't been prepped since the Baja 1000, which it finished. Corky was the start-ing driver. It was a toss-up, who was out first, but Josh Waddell prob-Greg Hansen led the Class 1 fracas all the way, he's seen here completing a pass and heading for the bam. ably won. His TLR Truggy was towed back to the main pits on a rope before all the other cars had got the green flag. It never made it back out onto the course. And Bob Lofton, in a J imco, was also out on the first lap, victim of a blown transmis-sion. But Corky McMillin was moving along just fine, and in the lead, with the class fast lap of the day, at 1:08:30 for the 63 miles. Greg Hansen had his Porter in second place, and Brent Miller, in a middle-aged Raceco, ran third, about 20 minutes off his pace with some kind of first lap misery. It all changed on the second lap, because McMillin's car lost a seal on the transmission, giv-ing him an idea of just how many miles the new transmis-sion could go without problems -that would be 1016 plus 63 or so, at speed. Now Hansen went into the lead, and Miller, with better times after some-thing was repaired, ran second. Hansen had about 15 min-utes worth of trouble on the third lap, but Miller had lost more time than that on Lap 1, and it didn't help him. Hansen went on to take the win and Miller was second and there were no other survivors. The Class 10 cars were the second bunch to go with eight starters. Only one of them, Brandon Aymar in his Honda powered Elite, failed on the first lap. Of the rest, Michael Deardorff had the lead, with 22 seconds on Darren Hardesty in a brand new Alumicraft, out for its first race here. Deardorff was a bit of a sur-prise, since he'd started late, and behind the three Class 8 trucks. He'd had to replace his battery, and just didn't quite make the starting line-up. In these MDR races, a late starter is put at the end of the next class, but doesn't incur a time penalty as he would in some other series (where they are given their intended start time, instead of the actual one. MDR considers having to start be-hind a bunch of slower cars enough penalty for the tardy racer). Deardorff, driving a car with a VW beam type front sus-pension, had clearly pushed hard to get around all the trucks and all but one of the Class 10 cars. Justin Lofton was third, about ten minutes back, and running on three cylinders in his Honda Jimco. David Gardner ran fourth, about two minutes behind Lofton. Ralph Mauzy drove his powerful and good looking car to the Class 5 win, seen here driving hard towards the finish line. Tony Steingraber led the Class 5-1600 battle all race long, he took the class win with ease, seen here at speed. On the second lap Deardorff held the lead, now with a bit less than two minutes on Hardesty. Lofton was still third, and Gardner held fourth. On the third lap both Lofton and Hardesty stopped for driver changes. Deardorff stayed in his car. At the end of Lap 3, Hardesty's teammate, Mark Randazzo, who'd never driven a race car before, was still second to Deardorff, but only by four seconds. Matt Loiodice, who took over for Lofton, was determined to catch up, pushing hard and still third, although he was a bit closer. Gardner held fourth. On the last lap Deardorff Brent Miller had a long first lap, then he got going but the best he Todd Stemmerman is just airborne, he ran well but was only able to Julie Kem was a bit off the pace in the Class 9 battle, she finished in could muster was a second place in Class 1. grab the silver medal in the Class 5 competition. the second spot at the MOR Bud Light race.

Things looked different when they came around the third time, and Mauzy was pretty much by himself. He had a half hour on Stemmerman, and Schertzer had parked some-where for over four hours with serious trouble. Mauzy went on to take the win, and Stemmerman finished 47 minutes behin d him in sec-ond place. Schertzer ran out of time for getting the last lap completed. The 1600 cars came next, with 20 entries.

Now he started pleading for another. Some pit person re-minded him there was one stored in the door. "No -some-one blanking took it!" he re-plied. From elsewhere, Larry McCallum reported he had a belt and would bring it out. Huge sighs of relief, audible even over the radio. But shortly came word that he was looking for a new pulley.

He'd been stuck in the sand for a few minutes when another car suddenly stopped in front of him, but he still earned a second place for himself and Kern. They were 25 minutes beh'nd Graves. In third it was Albanez and Jesus Velez, who drove the second two laps. He said it was hard to drive because the front beam was bent. Albanez, who usually races in the Mexicali area, thought this course was "too rough for Class 9". In fourth it was Jack Hettinger, a name out of the past, in a single seat car.
