3-ea.n. f!.alvi.n 8Ae CW tu Off (ft.gad. rft.g.cin3-!i cJe!it cf 'Ci.en.d. What do you call a person who has been actively involved with the sport of off road racing for almost thirty years? Crazy, ignorant, a glutton for punishment, a masochist, any of the above? Well, I guess you would have to say a bit of all of them, but that's what makes Jean Calvin unique in this sport. She was sort of conned into the sport in 1969 and it certainly took hold of her. It became her greatest passion in life, the participation, the information she is able to disseminate to the people, the love of racing, the love of driving, the peopl~ involved in the sport, but mostly it is the compel-ling urge to succeed, to overcome the obstacles that arise in front of her and overcome them she does. Never known as a quitter, Jean attacked the sport of off road racing with vigor, finding a great outlet for her competitive spirit, racing not only against some other driver, but against the elements themselves. There were days (and long nights) when the temperature was in three digits, when the silt was so thick you could never even see the hood of the car, when the snow was so deep you couldn't find the race course, when your crew stood out there like frozen fools, listen-ing for "Their" engine, and then watching their driver 'plow on by, and Jean was one of those drivers, either freezing or sweating or choking or being blinded in the dust and in spite of it all, having the best time in the world because you were racing, off road racing, and there was still one lap to go, or 300 miles to go, it didn 'l matte'i·, you were where you belonged and you were putting forth your best ef-fort, that too was Jean at all times. Now mind you, Jean wasn't the only driver out there having all that fun, she was one of maybe 450 to 500 active drivers in those days, but she was one of the few women racing the desert and she did her best to beat everybody else out there. Jean raced sports cars with the SCCA for many years before entering the off road world. She had an Austin-Healy Sprite, which was near and dear to her heart and even though it was known as a miserable ill-handling car, she raced it for years, competing against mostly men and refusing to enter the "Women's Races", racing i11-stead against the good ole boys, who detested her when she beat them to the checkered flag. Jean had her share of accidents and flips, including one five time end over end at Santa Barbara; it destroyed the car (except for the roll bar) and Jean ended up with a broken nose and a severely wrenched shoulder. However, as soon as possible an-other Sprite was built and she was at it again. Jean entered the off road world when she did an article on Les Choate, owner of Les's Auto Salvage. Les was involved in the fledg-. ling sport of off road racing and offered Jean and her husband a ride in a "Burro" (state of the art for the time) in the upcoming Baja 500 and except for losing a steering box it was a very successful race. Jean kept running with Les's Auto Salvage Team, sharing the driving with Les and his son Eddie in many races over the next few years, until the "F" bug bit, in this case "F" stands for Funco and that was the beginning of part two for Jean in off road raci_ng. Jean made a deal with Gil George at Funco and a brand new single seater was born, a car that was raced to death but came through the flips and the crashes without too much long term damage. Jean raced the little Funco, mostly-in Class 9, then in 1600 and for the most part, enjoyed every minute of it. Lots of help came to her through Dick McCool and Jerry Lawless who' always made sure the car was up ~o par and both these guys shared the driving chores with Jean on numerous._occasions. We are unable to count the times Jean has taken the green flag in off road, but racing full time for too many years to mention with SCORE, SNORE, WRA. ARVRA, and many many other sanction-ing bodies, she has had plenty of seat time in the desert. Jean had worked for Peterson Publishing back in the sports car days, then put out SCORE News for Sal Fish for some time but in December, 1983 the first issue of Dusty Times hit the presses and the rest is history. Jean knew that the sport of off road racing needed an unbiased journal of the happenings in the desert racing community and Dusty Times was the answer. With help from her husband, Brad Goodrow, Don Goodrow and Jerry Lawless, Dusty Times was born and became another consuming passion in Jean's life. Jean continued racing and publishing Dusty Times with Judy Smith covering some· events, and it wasn't too long before Jean and Dusty Times were becoming the voice of off road racing. Dusty Times was soon covering rallying in Europe and Africa through Martin Holmes and the Australian races were covered by Darryl Smith and Mick Myers. Jean was badly injured in a Baja 500 race some years ago, her racing activities were brought to a sudden stop for a time, but her determination soon had her back covering the races and reporting on the racers she loved so well. Jean left this earth of ours on March 31, 1997. She enjoyed every minute she spent racing, covering the races and, above all, publishing Dusty Times. Jean was blessed with the willpower, the guts and the determination to never give up, she worked the races and the paper in spite of the pain she lived with most days and was always amply rewarded when some racer thanked her for putting their picture in the paper. Jean was inducted into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2004, a fitting tribute to a woman who lived and loved off road racing for more than 30 years. Jean really was a champion!

Trail Notes ... CORR CHANGES HANDS -Jim Baldwin has purchased Championship Off Road Racing and the production assets of Marty Reid Enterprises from Marty Reid. Baldwin, an off road racer and major land developer in Southern California will now put his skills to work developing the future of the CORR Lucas Oil Series. "I have a passion for off road racing. CORR is entering a new era, so hold on!" said Baldwin. Baldwin said he looks forward to working with the staff of CORR in taking the sport to the next level. In order to do so, Baldwin pointed out that CORR's expansion from it's Midwestern roots is essential to gain national exposure by adding new markets. Baldwin indicated that a key ingredient for CORR's growth is the Southern California area. "California fans, sponsors and racers have been waiting on CORR to bring it's show to the west coast" noted Baldwin. "TI1is will happen very quickly. Several potential Southern California locations are presently being looked at." Founded in 1997 by Reid, CORR has grown into one of the premier off road racing series in the country, with 26 total rounds of racing in eight divisions, covering tl1e Pro and Sportsman Series. In 2004, 167 drivers from 20 states and Canada competed in the CORR Lucas Oil Series. 84 hours of exclusive CORR action is covered on tl1e Speed Channel network. "Since CORR was formed eight years ago, I have always said that if someone came along who could take the organization farther and faster, I would step aside," said Reid. Jim Baldwin's aggressive plan ofattack of growth on television as well as new event markets is incredibly exciting. Sponsors are the backbone of CORR's success. It's exciting to be able to protect their investment and give them their well deserved dividend. Our mission has been very clear, fulfilling sponsor needs with viable markets at each event, delivering quality brand impressions on television, and move tl1eir sales needle. For more information on Championship Off Road Racing and the CO RR Lucas Oil Series, visit Rumor has it that the CORR 2006 series wiU havefourraces back in the Midwestandfourraces in Southern California. Let's see what develops. We're sure that Jim Baldwin has the best interests of the racers at heart CORR 2004 RACES - You can still catch some of last years CORR action on the Speed Channel.

BITD PARKER 425 Hovey Hustles To The overall At Parker By Judy Smith Photos: Trackside Photo Mike Barnett and Bruce Kerstner had no brakes for the final 20 miles of the race, but hung in there to take the win in the JeepSpeed modified class. thanks to the heavy winter rains. It was hard for spectators to see what was happening. In some areas the roof of the vehicle could be seen gliding through the sea of green, then the whole car would pop up as it maneuvered one of the jumps, and then it could disappear com-pletely. On the plus side, the ground was damp, and there was little dust. Once through the tricky infield, which was bordered by the pits, they headed out into open coun-try. Scott Webster drove Jim Dizney's Honda Jimco to the win in Class 1000, and finished sixth in the overall standing while doing it, at the BITD Parker 425 in January. The finish line, as always, was along the river, in the neighbor-hood of the Blue Water Casino. This meant that teams had to keep track of which lap they were on, and on their final loop they turned sharply right instead of going straight, and headed down the three mile to the checkered flag. Parker, Ariz: Chuck Hovey en-joyed a near-perfect day at the Best In The Desert's season opener in January, the Parker 425, and took the overall victory in his V4 pow-ered J imco, beginning his year in a positive way. The event, still fairly new on the Best In The Desert calendar, is nev-ertheless a big favorite with the rac-ers. Many of them remember the old days of racing near the river, and many of them raced the old Parker events, and thus find the course familiar and friendly. As always, with this event, the BITD had a "Time Trials" for any-one who wished to try it. A six mile loop was marked off on the Thurs-day before the event, and those . competing were timed in their dash through the sand. The fastest 20 would start the race in descending order, at the front of the rest of the pack. The rest of those who'd competed would go to the front of their own class. For example: a Class 8 racer, who was, say, 30th overall, could still benefit by being started at the front of his class. This year's Time Trials was extremely sandy, and none of the limited en-The father/son team of Tom and Tommy Bradley teamed up to take the win in Qass 8000 in their Chevrolet. "Utile" Joe Aguirre, from Goodyear Tires, rode a lap in the truck. Ryan Stewart and Kevin Davis shared the driving in their Ford, and with only a couple of problems to slow them down, took the Class 7100 win. Pages gine teams that tried it made the top 20 as they had in years past. This year the course ran "back-wards" from the previous editions, moving counterclockwise over the roughly 135 miles of Arizona. The cars were started out on California Street, then turned left off the high-way and into the desert. About a quarter mile from the start they found themselves in the short course section of the race, a wind-ing trail with several man-made jumps and a lot of turns, snaking i~s way through a huge field that was waist high in green weeds All cars were started one at a time, 30 seconds apart. The weather was on the cool side, good for racing, and very pleasant for spectating as well. First off the line, thanks to his performance at the Time Trials, was Robby Gordon in his Chevrolet Trick Truck. His lead-footed start entertained the spectators and thrilled his fans, but at about Mile Red Burgin and Tom Brown paired up in their Chenowth to take the win in the 1100 class (same as SCORE ute) in spite of a broken spring plate. Eric and Daniel Deen split the driving in their Class 5100 bug and with a "100% day. went home with a first place. April 2005 35 he was already out with a holed pan. It was a huge disappointment to the Gordon fans, who'd hoped to see him go all the way. At Parker, altli.ough many areas are closed to spectators, there are some good places to watch the race and Gor-don fans had expected to enjoy his flat out style at several vantage points. Maybe next time. At the Drivers' Meeting the night before the race, thete was a nice sur-prise. BFGoodrich Tires an-nounced that they'd named Rod Hall the 2004 Motorsports Person of the Year. Describing Hall as a "great legend", and noting that he was an "unusual blend of competi-tor and businessman", Todd Steen, BFG Tires Motorsports marketing manager, described how Hall made "significant contributions to racing, both on and off the track." Hall, taken unawares, made a brief ac-ceptance speech. The audience ap-plauded the award enthusiastically. There were 23 of the Class 1500 cars (open wheel, unlimited) for this event and it was the biggest class. Two of them, the Melton team's Chevy Jimco and the Acuna/Reiling team's car, were out before getting far at all. Then the Weyhrich brothers' Jimco did what was de-scribed as a "hard endo", and was out for the day, and James and Mark Temple, in a Temple Raceco, couldn't get the lap done either. Too bad, it would be nice to see the Temples, part of the sport's history, at the finish line again. At the end of Lap 1 the lead be-longed to Bob Lofton, in a Jimco, but he had barbed wire wrapped around an axle boot and lost some time in the pits. Kelby Pepper ran second in his Jimco, and Pat Dean, in a Chevy Bunderson, was tied with Hovey for fourth place. Then, three minutes back, there was a three-way tie with B.J. Richardson in John Gaughan's Bunderson, Kory Scheeler in his Chevy J imco, and Scott Kincaid in a new Porter. A couple more fell away on the second lap, including Pepper. Kevin Volan in his Chenowth, Wayne Intermill, also in a Chenowth, and Richard Boyle in his Jimco all failed to complete Lap 2. The course was living up to its reputation. But at the end of the second lap the lead belonged to Hovey, who had to make a quick stop in his pit for a new alternator. Richardson was sec-ond and Lofton and his co-driver, Mike Julson, were third, about 13 minutes off the lead pace. Stuart Chase and Billy Robertson ran fourth in their Penhall. Behind them it was a close thing between two interesting teams. One was the team of Hayden Bentley and Jeff Quinn, in Bentley's right-hand-drive two seater from Australia. Quinn met Bentley when he went Dusty Times

But nothing went wrong, not even any flat tires, and as he said, there were "so many rocks out there!" He took the Class 1500 win by almost 12 minutes, an had the overall victory by a margin of four minutes and 20 seconds.

While Gordon was out early, the Kory Halopoff/Harley Letner truck went away even earlier, and so did the Ruben and Rudy Arzate Chevy. Then Shawn and David Wanzek and David Wilson, in a Ford, ran out of go a bit later. So by the end of the first lap there were only six Trick Trucks still running.

Gatrell had a variety of problems, includ-ing serious brake trouble, and was down nearly five hours by the end of the second lap, so he decided to part it. Taylor drove smoothly to the fin-ish, where he said; "I was so tired of not finishing. Everything about to-day was good. Great pit stops every time!" He took the win by 4 3 min-utes. Jones, who did two laps, handed over to Steinberger for Lap 3 and with nothing further of con-sequence, they took second. They reported that their truck has a· 7 5 gallon fuel tank, and they used 63 gallons a lap. Porter, who'd tossed an oil pump belt on the second lap, was third and the last in the class to get to the finish line. The Protrucks went off the line next, 10 strong. The first lap leader was Jimmy Nuckles in his Ford, and he had a close bunch right on his rear bumper. Charley McDowell ran second in another Ford, fol-lowed by Steven Staats in still an-other Ford, and Craig Smith was fourth, in yet another Ford. No-body broke permanently, but Gus Vildosola, Jr. came close. He rolled his Toyota going off one of the in-field jumps, before he even got fully out into his first lap. For the rest of the day he had a bent driveshaft. On the second lap it was even closer. Staats and McDowell were tied for the lead, while Mike Voyles, in another Ford, ran about eight minutes back in third. Smith was fourth five minutes later. And they were all still running. Vildosola's crew replaced his transmission. Ryan Staats took over for his _ dad on the final lap, and brought the truck home with the win. He reported that he'd had to "push real hard the last 50 miles to stay in front." Mike Voyles and Dwaine Walter were second, only a minute and three seconds behind. Walter, who did the last lap, said, "I used to race Class 9 - so this is a treat!" McDowell was third about three and a half minutes later. He said his Protruck was "more fun than the old Class 8." He'd had a hole in his radiator, but otherwise a "great day." In fourth it was Al Hogan, who was down to just second gear for the final two laps. Hogan was happy to have his 81-year-old mother at the race to cheer him on. Fifth place went to Craig Smith and Jason Jernigan who had two flats and nothing else. Jernigan said the Protruck is a "lot more stable" than his old Class 7 truck. Rick L. Johnson brought his Toyota home in sixth place, reporting a "bad day." He ran out of gas on the first Dusty Time$

Stanley and Mike Grover, in a Ford, who'd had two flats, and got lost when they missed a turn. They said they'd been racing just a year, and "we're getting faster." Nuckles finished in eighth reporting that he "turned the SOB over again." He said it was "straight upside down." In ninth it was Mike Bilek, who had no prob-lems, and 10th went to Vildosola, who'd had a long, hard day. They'd lost three jacks somehow, along with everything else. Every Protruck that started made it to the finish line. The Class 1000 cars were next, with 11 starters. There were some first lap casualties, including Drew Belk in his Lothringer, Rusty Harling in his ASC, and Blaise Jack-son and Mike Williams in their MECO. But the rest of the group carried on, led by Scott Webster in Jim Dizney's Honda Jimco. Webster had been the quickest of the Class 1000 drivers in the Time Trials. He had only four minutes on Dennis Hunter, who was just three minutes in front of Randy Miller in a Jimco. Justin Lofton ran fourth, a half-hour down, after his Jimco's power steering blew right off the start line, so that when he tried to make the left turn it didn't happen and he ran into a parked vehicle. He was able to keep moving, but with no power steering. At Mile 7 5 he got high-centered, and had to dig for 15 to 20 minutes, and at the end of 90 miles he put co-driver, Matt Loiodice, in to finish the lap, and get to the main pit for a new power Ian Jameson and Lee Jackson shared the driving in their Lothringer 1600 car (Class 2000) and didn't let a quick rollover slow them at all. They took the win. steering pump. Wade Kelson ran fifth in his Jimco, driving in his first race. Steve Brown and Randy Knutson didn't get the first lap completed, nor did Allen and Scott Gerber, in their Lothringer. They broke an axle. The second lap didn't get any easier and Ernest Gauthier and John Kelly fell by the wayside, as did Randy Miller and Bruce Mills, in a Jimco. And Dennis Hunter lost his motor, making him a Lap 2 dnf also. But Webster was having no trouble at all. Dizney had planned to drive, but hurt his back replac-ing the motor a week before the race, so Webster, who hadn't raced in a year and a half, got to do it all. He had an hour on Lofton and Loiodice, who were up to second. And they had an hour on Kelson, who ran third. And that's the way they finished. Webster got the win in Dizney' s car, finishing sixth overall. He'd had a completely trouble-free day. Lofton and Loiodice were second, an hour and 27 minutes later. They'd lost the power steering again, when a line pulled off and blew the fluid out. Then, on the last lap a wire fell off the coil and the car quit. Not their best day. But Mike Julson's daughter, Lauren, rode with Loiodice on the last lap, an event that Julson said was "scary". Lauren liked it. Kelson finished third, an-other two hours down. The Class 8000 trucks went off the line next, except for Curt LeDuc, who'd been the 10th vehicle to start, thanks to a good time in the Time Trials. There were seven The team of Jon Louis, Juan Munoz, Timothy Krueger and Brad Cook brought their modified JeepSpeed to the finish line in first place. of them. LeDuc, Ford, started the race, and ended the first lap in the lead, but he had only four minutes on Tom and Tommy Bradley in their Chevy. Mark Beeler ran third in his Ford, another six minutes back, and John Melsheimer, in a Chevy, was fourth. Greg Saavedra was already out, as was Rick Harrah, who lost his transmission. Mark Shoaff, Ford, also broke on the first lap. LeDuc put his son Todd into the truck, and he broke an axle in Osborne, Wash. He kept going, but they worried that he'd be using more fuel, so he stopped for a splash of gas at the Midway pit. At the end of the second lap, the Bradleys had the lead, with 12 minutes on the LeDucs, who had to cha31ge the axle. Beeler was still third, having fuel pump or fuel pick-up prob-lems. Melsheimer was still fourth, about 18 minutes further back. The LeDucs were running well on the third lap, making up time, with Curt at the wheel again. But then he went to pass a Class 10 car, ;bounced off the rear tire, and r~iled o·ver. A passing JeepSpeed car helped right the truck, but he lost about a half hour. In the. mean-time the Bradley truck lost the link-age on the carburetor and lost a lot of time. The truck wouldn't idle. But they still managed to finish with the victory. Beeler finished second, only six minutes later, reporting that he'd finally solved the fuel prob-lem by taking off the fuel pump and pouring gas in "to get it going."

Merritt was the final finisher, Felix Hurtado, in a Ford, having broken on the last lap. The 7100 trucks were next off . the line, and they all made it all the way. Mike Alden had his Nissan in the lead at the end of the first lap, with about 14 minutes on Kevin Davis in his Ford. Tyler and Blake Henn and their cousin, Julie, ran third in another Ford. Alden continued to lead through the second lap, and his lead had grown to about 26 min-utes. Davis was having some prob-lems. His rear axle hubs came loose and he had to tighten them, and he broke a throttle cable. A friendly Class 8 racer gave him a replace-ment. Julie Henn put the family truck on its side in the short-course section and lost some time, but they kept moving along. The. father and son team of Steven and Ryan Staats had a good race in their Ford Protruck, and had to work really hard to stay in front, but they did it, taking the win by a minute and three seconds. John and Jonathan Swift and Andy Waters survived a rollover in their Ford and went on to take the win in Class 7200. On the final lap Alden lost a couple of hours with some prob-lems, and Davis moved to the front. He took the win, getting his season off to a good start. The Henns were second about an hour later, and then, in another hour and 40 min-utes, Alden showed up for third place. The big SUVs (Class 4100) took off next, with five starters. Josh Hall's day went nothing like his brother's. He put his Hummer into the lead and stayed there, with ev-erything "working great." He had a seven minute lead over Keith Moore in a Ford at the end of the first lap. Marc Stein had his Ford in third place, and John R. and John A. Sunderland ran fourth. Only Gale and Noah Pike, in a Chevy, failed to complete the lap. Hall just kept moving along. But Stein, and his co-driver, McComas, had a close call. McComas was driv-ing and hit a berm too fast, stand-ing the truck on its nose. It hurt his back, and he was unable to move for a while, so medics came out to take him to the hospital. The truck went on with one of the navigators driving, and then Stein got in to go to the finish. At the hospital they determined that McComas hadn't done any serious injury to his back, so they gave him some pain medica-tion and released him. Their truck ran second, and Moore was now third. The Sunderlands dropped out, a rare occurrence for them. Hall, who said he never got out of the car, went on to take the win for Team Hummer. Stein finished second, nearly two hours later, and Moore fell out of the race on the third lap. Class 7300 was next to go with six starters, all Fords. Aaron Dixon had his truck in the lead at the end of the first lap, but Rob MacCachren was very close on his tail. He was having temperature problems. Carl Fitts ran third, an-other two minutes back and John Baker was fourth, four minutes be-hind him. It looked like an "any-one could win" type of race. But on the second lap Dixon's brother, Ian, lost first, third and reverse gears. MacCachren, with no problems, not even the overheat-ing, since they took off the hood, went into the lead. Now Fitts ran second, about 20 minutes back and the Dixons were third, another two hours later, after replacing their transmission. John Webster was fourth, and Baker disappeared. Also gone was the Jerry and Lance Fisher truck, after getting part way through the second lap. MacCachren, who drove the en-tire distance this time, sailed on un-eventfully to take the win. He was two hours and a half in front of the Dixons, who had no further problems once they'd installed the new transmission and took second. Webster, who'd apparently had most of his problems on the first lap, rallied to finish third and Fitts was fourth, the last to finish an-other half hour back. The 3100 cars were next to go, with six starters, all Fords. But it was a short day for two of them. Las Vegas racer Randy Sorenson had some problems with his Ford Barrie Thompson had some small problems with his modified and was down on horsepower, but still pulled out a second in Class JeepSpeed, and was tied for the lead for a while, but finished the day Isaiah and Zachariah Samons couldn't com-plete the first lap, nor could David Moore and Kenny McLain. But the rest got all the way around, with Scott Douglas in front in his four wheel drive Ex-plorer. He had just four m inutes on Mike Falkosky, who was a little over a half hour in front of Matt and Noah Pike and Zachary Churchill. And Stephen Costello and Anthony Napoleon 7200. ================= -;=in=s=e=c=o=n=d=p=la=c=e=. ==================; ran fourth about a half hour later. Douglas was having a smooth day, and happy to have his four wheel drive, because the sand was giving him no problems. Falkosky, On the other hand, had some trouble.

54TH UDDEHOLM SWEDISH RALLY 2005 Solberg/Subaru Shine By Martin Holmes Photos: Maurice Selden Petter Solberg and Philip Mills drove their Subaru lmpreza to a resounding victory in Sweden, seen here in flight above the snow. Finally, the Scandinavian driver Petter Solberg has won the Swedish Rally! After a hard fight for over two days with Marcus Gronholm (who fi-nally crashed) and Sebastien Loeb (who had engine failure) the opposition fell away and the Norwegian won by over two minutes. "Our strategy worked per-fectly," he explained, "we carefulfy planned how to tackle this event, told ourselves not to worry if the fight got tough, and it allpaid off.1'-Second .place went to Markko Martin despite gear-box problems at" midway, and third place went to Toni Gardemeister, who suffered badly on the first day on ac-count of fresh snow on the roads. It was a spectacular success for Pirelli, us-ing a revolutionary glue-less tyre stud-ding system and whose tyres were used by five of the top seven cars to finish, used by eight drivers from three teams, six of whom scored best times and led all the way. In the poorly supported PCWRC division, T oshihiro Arai (Spec CSubaru) led all the way, pressed hard by Mark Higgins (Spec C Subaru) on the first day, and finally won by 17 minutes in front of Angelo Medeghini (Evo VIII MR) ... One event happily ill founded, icy surfaces predominated though occasionally fresh snow slowed the front running drivers. Seventy-four entries were accepted for the second round of the series - a fair cry from the 34 in Monte Carlo! No fewer than 16 were from registered world championship teams (six two car teams and four extra entries) and ten "Priority 2" (manufacturer-supported entries in World Rally Cars). One dis-appointment was that only nine out of 21 registered contenders in the Produc-tion Car World Rally Championship Per-Gunnar and Jonas Andersson had a good rally, they drove their Suzuki lgnis to the Super 1600 win in Sweden. were present. There was little new about the route, which was based in the for-est roads around Hagfors, 100km north of the base at Karlstad. The main pre-event debate, as usuaL centered on the weather -and whether conditions were going to be favourable.Tradition-ally the scenic sights of snow have made this event popular, but more impor-tant was the condition of the roads, essentially whether there had been a long enough cold spell leading up to the event to make the roads hard enough not to be damaged by the event Only once (in 1990) had the event been cancelled because of sofmess of the roads, but the memory lingered and the threat remained. The problem was that every single" expert" weather fore-cast seemed to predict different circum-stances ... Although the longest stage this year was only 26km the greatest distance between tyre changing points was 57km, a great distance in circumstances when the abrasively hard packed ice (rather than softer snow) was expected to be the dominant surface. In these conditions the challenge is not simply the wear on tyres but the loss of studs. On winter rallies, tyres wear out not so much through friction, but more be-cause the studs heat up and then soften the tread blocks. TI1is makes the tyres less effective and causes the studs them-selves to loosen and fall out. The two main tyre suppliers, Michelin and Pirelli had differing approaches. Michelin used their traditional systems, Pirelli had a newly patented system for inserting the studs. One important fac-tor: this was the first ever world rally where, by regulation, competitors had Toshihiro Arai and Tony Sircombe slide around a corner on their way to the win in the PCWRC class in snowy Sweden. only a single tread pattern design they could use. So far as new regulations were con-cerned, this was the second event with the same engines, those used at Monte Carlo. No problems were experienced but because Armin Schwarz had re-tired, Skoda could change one of their engines. Citroen, however, chose to re-tain the engine that Francois Duval had used before he retired. Schwarz had not fully recovered from his Monte Carlo crash, so there was a driver shuffle in the Skoda team while there were various other changes including Jani Paasonen being chosen as the num-ber three driver rather than as nomi-nated driver. Antony Warmbold now had Michael Orr beside him, his third different co-driver in as many events. There was confusion with privateer Focus WRC entries. Finnish privateer Jouni Ampuja had hoped to enter, but he had crashed his car on the Arctic Rally. Juuso Pykalisto asked ifhe could replace him, the Stewards agreed, but he then apparently failed to raise the necessary budget and also did no start. A strange story was about Thomas Radstrom who was offered a one-off drive with the Olsberg Subaru WRC team but turned it down as the car would be an 03 rather than an 04 car (their regular driver Tobias Johansson had an 04 car). Then Radstrom had his driving licence impounded by the authorities because he was caught driv-ing 111 kph in a 70kph limit back home. An even stranger story concerned Daniel Carlsson. As part of his ongo-ing contract with Peugeot for 2005 he was entered i1,1 this event, but in a pas-sive transmission 206WRC, by Bozian. He told Peugeot Sport he would rather stay at home than drive a non-com-petitive car, and a big argument en-sued. He claimed that Peugeot had of-fered some rallies in a 307WRC, and for Daniel his home event had to be one of them. The cl1ances of his drive seemed doomed, because it was now far too late to change tl1e entry. Even-tually it transpired that the Bozian en-try had never been received by the organisers on account of a broken fax machine. The organisers felt guilty and agreed to accept a late entry, which was Daniel's miracle. The team could hardly refuse him a 307 ! The last laugh, how-ever, lex>ked like being Peugeot Sport's. They found him an old test car, on condition Gronholm and Martin did not dan1age it in pre-event testing. It was the oldest car they had, chassis # 3, built at the start of the 307 programme for the 2004 Monte Carlo Rally. Around the teams Ford had a most happy number two driver, Henning Solberg, brother of Petter, who had never been a fully official team driver before. At Subaru Chris Atkinson had his first works four wheel drive entry, in awe of his new world and even more staggered that next time, in Mexico, he was to be nominated by the team, while the alternative Subaru second driver Sarrazin had a new co-driver, Denis Giraudet. For the fourth year of the Produc-tion Car World Rally Championship, nine of the 21 registered drivers elected this event as one of their qualifying events. The drivers registered for the series came from a total of 14 different countries. Various other top drivers had privately entered the Swedish, no-tably Skoda works driver Jan Kopecky in a Group N Mitsubishi. There was a welcome to the championship for Tobias Johansson, to be the regular driver for the Olsberg team which plan to enter all the events from now to the end of the season.Twenty-three years old, the son of fonner Saab driver Erik Johansson, he served a season-long work experience apprenticeship with M-Sport in 2004. Shakedown saw some surprises. Af. ter a virtual absence of any snow dur-ing recce, there were several centimeters of snow in the area, and the Hagfors service park was a bleak and windy scene.

MDR LUCERNE 250 James Takes Class 1 And The overall By }. Preston Bradshaw Photos: Trackside Photo Bobby Quarnstrom Jr. Was the big winner in the Class 1450 battle, he beat out 23 competitors to win the gold medal. The often used Lucerne course was put into service once again in early February as the Mojave Desert Racing crew put the driver's skills to the test yet once more. There were 63 racers rarin' to go and 33 of them would see the finish line. The rest? Well, you can't finish ev-erytime. Class 1 only had four entrants, one of them didn't start and one of them didn't finish. Jim Heine led Mike James drove his great looking car to the win in Class 1 at Lucerne, he was first overall also with a 68mph average. the first lap, Tim Rockenbach was right on his tail and Mike James was a minute and a half behind Tim. On the second lap Heine disap-peared from the scoring charts, Rockenbach led and Mike James was an additional minute in arrears. Lap 3 saw no changes except that James dropped almost another minute to the leader. Everything changed on the fourth lap, Rockenbach had troubles, lost a lot of time and Mike James went into the lead. On the fifth and final lap James added a bit more to the dis-tance to second place and he glee-fully came in to take the checkered flag and a very nice win. Mike's time for the 250 mile run was 3:40:07, an average speed of 68.1 miles per hour, pretty damn quick. A nice win for Mike James, Tim Rockenbach came in second, he was 45 minutes out of the win but he did manage to finish the race. Matt Kupiec did not start the race. There was only one Class 5 car, Christian Hall, he started the race, had major troubles on the first lap, spent over an hour and a half com-pleting his lap and decided to call it a day. The only Class 5-1600 entrant was John Stevenson and he did not get to start the race. Class 700 was another class with only one entrant, Barry Karakas, but Barry was there to race and race he did. Major problems on the first lap cost him well over an hour and a half but from there on in he was rain' and he finished his race in 5:42:16, not bad for all that down time. The Class 700 win went fittingly to car #700, Barry Karakas, seen here at speed Eric Tadeja lifts off the course on his way to the Class 750 win, Eric had an easy There were six entries in Class 7 50, but only two of them made it to the finish line. As they finished their first lap it was Eric Tadeja in the lead, Karl Stokes came along 10 minutes later, Mike Koenig had big problems out on the course and turned in a two and a quarter hour lap and Noe Sierra didn't finish the first lap. Lap 2 saw Tadeja still with a comfortable lead, Mike Koenig was running well now but well in arrears and Karl Stokes went in for major surgery and turned in a lap of 4:21:03. Lap 3 had everybody running decently, it was Tadeja, Koenig and Stokes.

The fourth lap saw no changes in the order and when the checkered flag flew it was Josh Klenske taking the Class 8 win, his time of 4:07:55, 60.5 miles per hour average had him finishing third overall in the race. A very nice day for Matt. Unfortunately, Kupiec and Towery were unable to complete their fifth and final lap. Only one contestant showed up in Class 9, Michael Ward, Jr. Michael took the green flat at 7:25 in the morning but he failed to com-plete the lap.

Deardoff opened up a few more minutes on Klenske on the second lap, kept widening the margin on the third lap and showed no signs of slowing on the fourth lap. Klenske was keeping pace now but was well in arrears. On the fifth and final lap Mike set fast time for the class and there was no sign of Klenske, terminal prob-lems had set in. Deardoff easily took the Class 10 win and Mike was sec-ond overall on time as well for the race. There were two Class 11 cars (I bet they wish they still had their heaters installed).

One rainy Saturday we fi-nally got around to looking at the Dust To Glory CD that was sent to us for review. Let me start by saying this: Dana Brown did his daddy proud! I sat and watched the 2003 Baja 1000 unfold before me with some of the best photog-raphy I've seen in many years. The statements of the various drivers really hit home, their driving in the Baja 1000 each year is likened to· a religious experience by many of them and no matter how or when or where they finished the race, mentally they are already preparing for the next year's adventure. And, an adventure is what it is; you are guaran-teed to experience elation, frustration, heartbreak, ter-ror, happiness and a whole bunch more of the mental ex-tremes before you complete your thousand miles. And, whether you complete the race or not, a lifetime of emotion will funnel through your mind before day is done. All of the above are there to be seen in the Dust To Glory movie•,-aughter, tears, shock and anxiety are pro-jected onto the screen and, believe me, you are right there in the midst of it! Dust To Glory is a far bet-ter picture than On Any Sun-day was: the expertise, the equipment, the facilities avail-able are much more sophisti-cated now and it shows. The latest camera and sound inno-vations allow you to experi-ence your stomach going out from under you as you sit in-side the Trophy Truck as it leaps into the air, coming down with a resounding thud. You can almost feel the effect of a very hard landing. There are lots of interviews with many drivers and riders, lots of celebrity appearances and lots of off road action. Trophy trucks are prevalent, as well they should be, as they are the fire breathers of the sport, lots of motorcycle ac-tion, enough to have you grip-ping your armrests in your liv-ing room, some class 11 VW Bugs, the hardiest group of racers in the world, theirs is always a very long and rough day and they are all heroes in their own right. Very little class 10 or class 1600 footage, that will disappoint a lot of people, but, the fact remains, Dusty Times this movie is more than total enjoyment for any off road racer o r enthusiast, and it cer-tainly will excite and amaze the average Joe Public, who has no off road desires. In fact, Dust To Glory could ex-cite some people enough to take an interest in the sport. We salute the camera crews who spent many hours on the race course and in the air above for their efforts and the excellent results achieved but most of all we salute the drivers and their crews who battle the Baja every year on their Dust To Glory adven-ture.

SNORE SHORT COURSE BATTLE AT PRIMM ,-,alloy Makes Merry In The Mud By John Calvin Photos: Trackside Photo It was a great weekend for Rick Poole, he won his heats both days and took the Class 9 honors with three minutes to spare. Mike Malloy had a great weekend, he won his races on both days, took the Class ½-1600 win and he was the overall winner as well. The SNORE folks get to-gether on February 19-20 at Primm to run their short course race on a very muddy, sloppy seven mile course. There had been nothing but rain in the South-ern California, Southern Nevada (Las Vegas) areas for almost two weeks as three major storms moved very slowly through the Mojave Desert, leaving a trail of very wet desert and there was more to come, according to the latest weather forecast. Contingency and Technical In-spection were held on Friday night behind the Buffalo Bill's Hotel and Casino and there was even a bit of a sprinkle through-out that event, but the rain was light enough so as not to be a bother.

There were 11 Sportsman Buggy cars ready to fight the mud and water on Saturday, but Aaron Hawley did not start the race and Courtney Collins was a rare, for her, dnf. After running the five required laps and when all the mud was cleared away it was Jeff Shiroky taking the Sat-urday win, in second place it was Greg Frechette, less than a minute behind and Orio Cox was the third finisher, he was less than three minutes out of the win. In fourth place it was Dave Deloe, he was another minute back, and the fifth spot went to Eddie Aguiar, he was less than five minutes behind the leader. Sixth place went to Kathryn Der-rick, she was just 12 seconds be-hind Eddie, Jeff Farshler was the seventh place finisher, then came Randy Jones, he was just one sec-ond out of seventh place and Paul Sheldon was the eighth and final finisher in the class, he was a mere eight minutes behind the class winner. As they got ready to attack the course on Sunday, it was evident that the times would be a bit slower than Saturday as the course was really bad.

BFG OUTHOUSE CONTEST regulated by varying the pressure on the pedal. Pro Pit outclasses Them All little house. Something to while away the time between race vehicles. It was hoped that the poets would remem-ber that persons of all ages and both genders would be reading the poetry. Through the long night, as they worked on race vehicles, the team could hear visiting racers mashing the pedal to the maximum speed, and honking the horn, as if trying to pass a slower outhouse. By Judy Smith The Pro Pit support team, long one of the mainstays of the BFGoodrich support network at races all over California, Nevada and Baja, took top honors in the BFG Best Outhouse contest at the 2004 Baja 1000. Whenever the layout of the Baja 1000 course means .that the pit sup-port team will have to "camp out" in the boonies, an outhouse has been a part of the equipment brought along, tucked in with tires and welders and dump cans. Once they conceived of the idea, in the mid-90s, it quickly became routine to pack the plywood, already cut to size, and the necessary other accouterments to make it functional and comfortable. Electric " lights became fairly stan-dard equipment by '98, Photos: Trackside Photo nology. There are usu-ally lights, and some-times painted rock or flower bordered path-ways, well lit of course. Previous winners have added such touches as drink holders and coat hooks, along with inter-esting reading material. One year a race poster was mounted inside the door and all who ea-tered were encouraged to autograph it. (One wonders where that poster is now.) In last year's competition, vis-iting guests were given writing materials and encouraged to create After visiting all the outhouses and doing some serious decision making, the outhouse designed and built by the Pro Pit team was declared the 2004 winner. !twas painted in the colors and style of the old Ford Rough Riders trucks, and came complete with win-dow nets, BFG tires, roof mounted "driving lights" and a Ford oval in the grill. The race team name was inscribed on the side wall. Inside there was a steer-ing wheel mounted to the door, along with a functional horn button attached to a set of small air horns, and on the floor, a gas pedal. It would seem at first thought that a cautious individual would never, under any circumstances, step on a gas pedal in an outhouse. But apparently few could resist. And the results were entertaining. As the visi-tor stepped on the pedal the outhouse seat would vibrate and make a "varoom" sound. The speed could be Jack Sypolt, originator of the out-house idea in tl1e first place, and head of Pro Pit, was pleased to be the year's winner. He says he's not sure what they can "do to top this, but the minds are already thinking." It's certain to be an entertaining result. Whatever you do, while chasing or racing at the next long Baja 1000, be certain to have a look at the BFG out-house. They're well worth a little side trip. ..·1, for example.

Pony Express ... A True Fan Speaks Out I've (font many road racing events in Mexico and the USA, in-cluding NASCAR, SCCA, IMSA and the TECATE Gran Prix series races, but I've never had such a great a time racing as. the San Felipe 250. I have to congratulate SCORE on a well run and exciting event. I was fortunate enough to be hooked up with an experi-enced Class 9 team in Jimmy Richardson and R.C. Jones, whose combined 40 years of experience in SCORE events truly made the decision to join up a no brainer. When Sal spoke at the awards ceremony about the "SCORE FAMILY" he was talking about Jimmy Richardson and his Dad, and RC Jones and his sons Brett and Thomas, and the many friends they had made during the many years of SCORE competition. Family was the key word as I was introduced to these friends during regis-tration and at the Miramar Bar prior to the race. On Fri-day Jimmy is out front of my In-laws (helps to have family in town) tuning up the Class 9 when a guy walks out of the campground across the street. Big smiles and several hand-shakes later and I am intro-duced to Geddo AKA Willy AKA Bob, who turns out to have been on an RC-J o nes SCOR E c rew man y times in the past, a n d had heard that RC and Jimmy MIGHT be making a run at the 250. So he just says c-YA to the wife and job etc. and drives 200 miles. to San Felipe on the off chance that he m ight be able to help. that he was staying right across from us had to be divine interven-tion or maybe Karma? Even more amazing to me were the spectators. R.C. and I started the race, and we got a flat just two miles out-(in the Dump) while chasing down the rest of our field. We pulled off line right in front of a group of spectators. Be-fore I could even get out of my 5 point restraints, these folks had a floor jack under-neath us. With smiles on their faces and electric lug guns in their hands, they had the flat rear tire off, the undersized spare going on front, and the front going back to the rear Ul..Q.t,_ in way less time than a NASCAR crew could have fig-ured chat all our. The lugs were finished with a torque wrench as our "instant crew" gave us their departing words "Living the Dream dude-.. DO IT!". With that kind 4f en-couragement and assistance I now felt duty to bound to not just finish, but finish well. Thirty kilometers further down the road, "some Dudes" were frantically trying to flag us down. R.C . and I stopped, half expecting them to say something about a stuck car up ahead or some such danger in the road. Instead "some Dudes" said they had tires for us. Turns out. they were long time friends of car owner Jimmy Richardson that had Dusty Times decided, just the night before, to grab some spares from Jimmy's shop and head on down for the race, just in case we needed help, So they just camped out in the middle of nowhere overnight waiting to see if Jimmy's car came by .. . unbelievable. So we pulled over to their truck and they re-placed the dead. tire with a right. sized rear, put the front tire back up front, and restowed the undersized spare. What was remarkable to me about this pit stop is that I had no clue these folks were. even in San Felipe let alone waiting out here in the middle of the Baia desert "just in case" we needed help. No radios, no cell phones, so how did they know? Seems they saw us at a major road crossing (Zoo Road) with a dead spare, and "chased" us up course to where we neared a major cross road again, hell bent to ensure we had a shot at a finish. What amazing friends. I'd like to say I've got a six pack of Tecate with their names on it, but I can't. I've got the brew, but I never did catch their names! So after two pit stops, and after a field of 290 vehicles having "enriched" the course before us, I knew it would take an amazing effort to finish anywhere near the front of our class. R.C. Jones showed his experie nce by doing his part an d had us clear up to fourth in class by t he t ime we made our only fuel stop and driver change at checkpoint 2. Having now moved from Navi-gator/ballast to pit crew member , I got to experience the anxiety of not knowing how the car and its occupants was doing while we moved our pit set up to near checkpoint 4, about 18 miles from the fin-ish. We were 40 minutes be-hind the class leader after the driver change, and only had 130 miles to try and make it up. Could it be done without breaking? Did we even have enough fuel in the car? The first leg had seen a lot of 1st and 2nd gear which burned up fuel, and we had only re-placed nine gallons. We de-cided to have a two gallon splash ready for Jimmy just in case he and Brett Jones needed it. About three hours-later, class. leader Eric Fisher came by, looking good and driving hard. Ten minutes later a back running Trophy Truck came by that had left checkpoint 2 just moments, after our little Class 9 far. So I figured Jimmy might finally be within radio range and grabbed the mike. I made a call to Jimmy telling him our location and if he wanted gas. His reply was, loud and clear. .. "I'm at mile 222 and I ain't stopping for noth-ing!" I put down the mike just in time to see our car fly by ... in second place! With only a few miles to go and behind by 20 minutes, there was no way he could catch Fisher, but I de-cided it would be a waste of time to tell Jimmy as ht1 was definitely on a mission. While Jimmy never did catch Eric, during h is-half of the ride he had managed to make up a re-markable 18 minutes, and put us solidly in second place .. An amazing display of driving skill in a nineteen year old car that hadn't seen San Felipe since 1997 ! All in all an amazing race, and an awesome experience. Dirt Rules!

BFGaadricH Tires Report By Christian Flathman BFGoodrich Tires-Ready For Rough, Rocky & Fast Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250; Pursuing 11th Straight Overall Victory In Record Field Of En-tries. San Felipe Mexico-Feb. 24, 2005 BFGoodrich Trres will be pursuing its l 1th straight overall victory at the Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 when the worlds top off-road racers roll into Mexico on Feb. 25, 2005. Often billed as one of the roughest and fastest races on the SCORE International off-road racing schedule, the San Felipe event is known not only for great competition, but for the huge positive economic im-pact it brings to San Felipe. We're really looking forward to this year's race, said Todd Steen, motorsports marketing manager for BFGoodrich Trres. Not only is this one of the most competitive races. of the year, it's also one of the toughest. We are bring-ing multiple tire engineers to this race to get input from our drivers and teams about the Baja T/ A tires performance, We are. always looking to improve our product and this is one of the best places to evaluate your product because of the extremely fast and tough conditions. Round 2 of the five-race 2005 SCORE Desen Series will be held Sat-urday in the tiny fishing village of San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico. With a race-record field of more than 280 en-tries scheduled to compete in 24 Pro and 5 Sportsman classes, the green flag will drop at 8:30 am for car and truck classes. All vehicles will have a 10-hour time lin1it to complete the race and ve-Page 42 hides will start in 30-second intervals. After multiple class and an overall vic-tory at the SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge, BFGoodrich Tires teams sit atop the overall SCORE points race and will be looking to add to their lead. Teams To Watch: Going Postal: 2004 race winner Mark Post is preparing to defend last year's performance and is ready to de-liver his truck to victory lane. Post has added 1997 race winner Curt LeDuc as a co-driver in hopes ofbecoming just the second team to win back.-toback years. Trophy truck teams have had a lock on the overall championship since 1998. Ironically, Post was the last driver to win the race in a Class 1 buggy. Ter-rible News: For everyone else. Ed and Tun Herbst have won this race four times in their Trophy Truck and are looking for more. Lucky 7. Eric Solorzano. has won Class 11 six consecutive and is chasing a remarkable seventh straight victory. Check Mate: Eric Fisher (no rela-tion to chess king Bobby Fisher) has-won Class 9 four of the last five years and is looking to further cement his position as one the toughest racers to beat in San Felipe. Driving For Five: John Griffin has won Full Stock for the last four years in a row and 2003 race winner Rob MacCachten is looking for a fifth vic-tory in the race.

TI1e majority of teams race the 3 7-inch Baja T / A tire while a select number of drivers will be using the 39-inch version of the tire. The larger Baja T/ A KR tire features a bigger air chamber for greater potential shock ab-sorption, a key element in maximizing speed and suspension performance in the larger Trophy Truck class. In addition to providing its re-nowned Baja T/ A KR tire, BFGoodrich Tires will once again be providing on-site pit and communications support to teams running its tires through its fleet of off-road motorsports support vehicles. Tilis volunteer crew of mechan-ics and communications experts has quickly developed a reputation for be-ing some of the most skilled and recog-nized mechanics and race support per-sonnel in racing. Tiiese part-time volunteers ace almost as exciting to watch as the race itself, said Steen.

The factory sponsored HUMMER Team took advantage of the Checkers offer for any non-Checker racer to 'sample', on a one time basis, the excel-lent pit support the Checkers regularly supply. Tilis is a very obvious attempt to recruit newer members from further away ... and we're basically doing pretty well at it in the short time its been going on. We also had a rookie team of Navy Seals, Dave Sexson and Sam Edgar in a 1/2 1600 buggy run the Parker event with us. They had a great day and came away with a new appreciation for what kind of a security blanket pittin' with the Checkers can be. Chad Ha!L in the pick up Hummer Hl, blew a tranny just outside of Midway, and the Checker pit helped R&R that Hummer trans in a little less than two hours (in the dirt). Afterwards the Hummer guys admit-ted that 'their best time was a little over an hour and a half on a concrete floor in a well-equipped garage. Note: Casey and Dianewentoutoftheirwayto help out the Checkers with some extra pit passes for some of our guys who would be arriving at the race very late. Tunks 'Folks', your cooperation was appreci-ated. CHECKER RESULTS: Con-gratulations to Josh Hall in that big yel-low H2! He won his class goin' away. Tut HUMMER thing weighs about four tons, and Josh seems to be able to drive it around like it was a buggy. The Seal Team of Sexson and Edgar also had a good run grabbing a second place in the 1/2 1600 class. Josh's brother Chad, despite the loss of a tranny man-aged to salvage a sixth place fmish by 11 seconds over the seventh place guy. The Robertson and Chase unlimited V-8 buggywas running high up in the stand-ings into the third lap until Billy had a major bolt break at the spindle/ tie rod connection, which set them back to ninth at the finish line. Billy's hot rod, with Stuart at the wheeL placed 14th during the previous day's qualifying trials and was looking at a good finish before their significant downtime. Atta way' guys! Our DNFs included Tom Koch, who had a coil and shock problem, then blew a motor just a few miles from the finish after he goc back into his unlimited buw for the final leg in from Midway. Tom was overheard complaining that "If this had still been the Parker '400' I'd at least finished the son-of-a-bitch!" Den-nis Crowley's ride in the Sunderland's Dusty Times H

Page 43

SUV suffered severe front-end damage 'twice' before they retired it. And Rob-ert Harman's 1/2 1600 ride was cut short when the car lost the engine on the first lap ... buta good time was essen-tially had by all. IDIOTS ON PARADE -Out at the Graham Well pit our guys had an ugly experience with some jerks from San Clemente in truck #l 222. Seems the Club had three pit crews set up side by side in the pit area at Graham Wells when two of the following racers pulled a really stupid stunt. This story involves J. R. Stanley, Mike Grover, John Kilroy, or Jim LeFerry. Apologies to the two guys who weren't in the truck, but ya gotta realize that ya do sometimes get painted with the same broad brush when ya hang around with fools. Seems this Pro Truck, which was not really run-ning in the hunt, decided to do some pit racin' late in the race. First they charged right through the Hummer pit, then through the adjoining Checker pit, and then on through the Sunderland/ Crowley pit before sliding to a stop in their own pit for fuel... but they were not done. They finished off their stupid stunt by rooster tailing their own crew with rocks and dirt as they left! Foolish, dangerous and stupid. TYPESETTER'S ERROR-In last month's Checkers' Column there was a significant mistake made. Now in writ-ing a column titled 'the straight poop from the big Wahzoo' I simply cannot be writing any bullshit! So let me correct this mistake by saying that Jim Gregory was named and awarded 'Checker of the Year' honors by the Club for his significant contribution to tl1e Check-ers in 2004. SAN FELIPE 250-This SCORE race is always a big favorite with the Club, starting with a big Clam Bake feed and party at Tellier's place on Friday after-noon and into the evening. This year Locos Mocos and the Checkers again teamed up to put on an impressive buf-fet of clams, tri-tips, elk meat, tamales, rice, beans, and all the other fixings ... including an impressive bar of beverages. A special thanks to Locos Mocos and all the otl1er non-Checkers who made tl1is annual get togetl1er anotl1er big suc-cess. CHECKERS RES UL TS - Rich Severson (Stretch) and the Milo Brown entry had a great race going in tl1e 7SX class. Milo's truck ran point during the first part of the race until they broke a spindle ... but, we got a new beam pole shaped prospective fromAriwna, who was right there to take over the battle for the first spot. Butwait! ... Stretch sud-denly runs outta gas, immediately going from 'Hotshot' to 'Dumbshit'. Especially when anotl1er 7SX truck goes limping by inheriting a lead that nobody seems to be able to hold. But winners always seem to be such lucky guys. And yep, up drives a !are but a rolling gas station named Trophy Truck #96. And Stretch is able to beg seven gallons from a Checker-friendly Bobby Baldwin. Hey Bobby, the Checkers owe ya one, Dude! And our hero was off again! With Milo still behind hin1, he now quickly passes tl1e lead truck parked on tl1e side of tl1e course. "We could win this sucker", Rich musta been silently whispering to him-self, just as the Milo Brown prepped 7SX went flyin' by them after Checker Pit #4 ... Damn! Botl1 trucks then start hammering their way up through tl1e softer stuff ya find over on the gulf side of this peninsula, on the last leg up to the finish line. But this time it was the Milo truck which had the last bit of hard luck, with tire problems in the deep sand, Continued on page 43 HEAD a NECI RESTRAINT SYSilE • Slows forward motion in tire event al a crash • Allows head movement • No cumbersome collar to wear • Quick, one-time adjustment • Does not hook into lap belt • Reduces neck tension by 45-70% • Great for all types ol motor racing, especially where driver changes are common TIP DRIVERS UTILIZING THE D•CEl George Seeley • Ed, Tim & Troy Herbst • Larry "LR" Roese/er Mark Post • Nick Baldwin • Jerry Whelchel • Alan PFiueger Jason & Josh Baldwin • Rick, Randy & Ronny Wilson Mike Julson • Bob Lofton • Mark & Gary Weyhrich • Dave Ashley Dan Smith • Kyle Taylor • Gus Vildosola • Rob MocCachren {. ~11.:-tW,.,.,jb.,,1 1.B00.700.2350• Fax 909.360.0436 3834 Wacker Drive • Mira Loma, CA 91752 .......... ,, II clo•tn'I hav• lo lte a hollclas, 01 a .. 1,lhclav lo 9lv• to .. •on• pou lov• a 9111 tu .. ,c,lpllon lo Dutlp Tl .. ••• N• .. lle•t of pout pll c••• tut•lt, would 1111• a tu .. ,c,lpllon ancl clon'I fo19•I Aunl Na,lha In lo-■, th•'cl lov• lo ,eacl all a .. oul he, fauotll• n•ph••• Call ut ancl tu .. tctllle -W• D•llv••I Dusty Times April 2005 Page 43

as Stretch blew by him. This last chunk of down time made the difference, as Rich Severson show'em why he's the defendin' class Champ! Hey kid, ya keep driving like that and we just might vote ya in as a full member. AW ARDS NaT -A sour note on this one-two Checker finish in a good truck class of five was at the awards. Stretch was called up for being the win-ner but Sal didn't even have a trophy for him, much less even a mention for the second place truck. Anybody who ponies up about a grand to a promoter to run his race, and doesn't even get some kinda cheapo trophy for winnin', has a right to be pissed. MORE RESULTS -The Jim Tucker and Tom Koch entry in Jim's unlimited buggy was runnin' for the money when Koch flipped Tucker's car on the pavement right where ya come out of Matomi Wash and head north on the Puentocitos road. They finished fifth. Ron Dalke, also running under out new' one race only' program to en-list new racers, ran up near the front of his Class 10 pack for a lot of the race, but faded to a respectable seventh. Good finishes anyway, guys! Jim Greenway DNFed after stuffing the Class 12 he was driving right into a big power pole. Now I don't mean he just hit it. .. he really smashed it right on dead center and bent the shit outta both the pole and the car. Great aim, Jim. And also, the Big Wahzoo would like to thank FAIR and their Prez Tom Sobray for helping out with some radio relaying. Seems our Club was picking up some interference from the mainland over our Club fre which real! hindered our communications. Thanks again to FAIR! COPS & CHECKERS -This is a story about an old timer and a relatively new Checker. Thumper McDowell (the old guy) and Mark Nacke were driving out of their Checker pit in Mark's truck, down near the bottom end of the Matomi Wash, when they saw the flash-ing lights of a cop car ahead of them. Shit! As they got closer they saw the cop standing in the middle of the dirt road saving for them to stop. But their con-cern of being hassled quickly vanished when the cop told them that he was stuck and wanted them to pull him out. Hmmm? After a little haggling, the cop finally agreed to let Thumper put a Checker sticker on the rear of his police car in return for them pullin' him free. After putting the sticker on, Thumper hooked up the snatch strap while the cop got back into his car to help get the two vehicles moving ... while mumbling something about "going slow". After Thumper got back into the truck, Mark asked him if they were ready ... oh yeah, said Thumper, just floor it! Well they don't c;all those things snatch straps for nothing, and in a big road of engine noise and abigjolttheywereall back on the hard pack in an instant. Thumper got out to unhook their tow strap just about the time the shaken cop wan-dered out of the dust, and that's when they both discovered that the cop's rear bumper was now bent outward into a big V. "Glad to be of help, anytime of-ficer." Thumper quickly got back into the truck, and he and Mark then slowly drove on confident that they had in-deed done their ood deed for the da . WHATS UP?-Our'AnnualSum-mer Party' will be held somewhere in Cal City on June 18th. Sometime in mid-August one of our Wednesday night meetings will be held ata local slick track/ road and drag racing facility. This is a coed affair where wives, girlfriends, and pit tootsies will be welcome. We will have our own large room where we can all eat and drink together between racin' and nerfin' each other in go karts and such. Sign upsheetswillbegoingaround at our meetings as those dates approach. So until next month, try to keep the shiny side up! .. p;1RePorl By Ann Donaldson The CORE pit club had a good showing at he first SNORE race of the season. Six CORE cars made the trip to Primm, Nevad:;i, to race two days in the mud. The battle at Primm would be remembered as the "wet ig-nition race!" The CORE cars were using an aftennarket high voltage ig-nition that, when wet, malfunctioned. There wasn't much dry land for this race after the rains that ounded MSD 6-0llraad Ignition, PN 6470 + Multiple spark series lasts for 20° of crankshaft rotation to improve throttle response and low rpm operation - great far climbing! ~B ~FOROOC!N + An epoxy compound secures the circuits creating a water and vihratian resistant ignition. + Simple installation, easily connects to points, amplifier and mag-netic pickup distributors.

The course con-sisted of seven mile laps. The normal Start/Finish by the hotel was under water. The main pit was moved and was a muddy mess. The course was described as, of course, muddy, but also containing quite a few spectators out and about. Brad Inch said, "It reminded me of a Mint 400 race when you would drive by and the people would separate. Like a cue ball hitting a rack of pool balls." A total of three Class I cars en-tered, with two of those cars being CORE cars. Since it was so wet out, keeping the ignition dry on the race cars became a battle between man and weather. One CORE member was zapped by the ignition on one of the race cars. The ignition was wet and was arcing all over the motor area. The zap he received was an eye opener, no pun intended. Ted Jergensen won Class 1 in his Smithbuilt two seat buggy. He fought the computer that controls the motor all weekend. Like many electronic parts, the computer was not happy running in the rain. Finishing in second place in Class 1 were brothers Tim and Jeremy Llndsey. Tim commented, "When I was given the green flag it was like a vortex of rain opened and poured on top of my car. That made for an interesting start to my race." Tim took the class win on Saturday. His racing on Sunday was full of troubles, his helmet visor was caked with mud and wearing eyeglasses didn't help Tim, when he tried to clean the visor his glasses became muddy. A constant battle: with one hand on the wheel and the other trying to keep his vision clear. His weekend ended with trans-mission troubles. Three CORE Class 1/2-1600 cars made the trip. Club President, Brad Inch experienced motor problems in his 1600 car. Brad also brought out his pre-runner to run in the Unlim-ited Sportsman Class. The pre-run-ner experienced ignition problems from the rain so Brad called it a day. Co-Driver, Kim Hall commented on the muddy race conditions, "I saw the green flag and that was the last thing I saw!" Tom and Tim Craig finished in fourth place on Saturday in the 3G 1600 car. On Saturday, ·the steering box bolts were sheared off, causing major steering problems. They were able to repair it after the race. Their racing effort also was plagued with ig-nition troubles. One of the great phrases from a film was said by the character Forrest Gump, "Stupid is as stupid does." If you park on the outside of a turn and wonder why mud is kicked up from race car tires towards you, then I think that Mr. Gump may as well be talking about you. If you think throwing beer cans at that race car and starting a confrontation with the mother of the race car driver is going to score you any points, it's not! Linda Jones, mother of Randy Jones was not only appalled at the actions of these people, but when she saw them throwing beer cans at her sons car, while he was racing, that was the last straw. No mother is going to sit around and watch that, no matter how old her son is. Linda did not. It seems that the can throw-ing people were belligerent and SNORE of-ficials were called in. TM incident ended with no additional cans thrown at race cars. And, yes, the can throw-ing group continued to park on the outside of the tum so you can see that there is some wisdom in the Forrest Gump quote. Now: back to CORE racing caverage. Randy Janes was keeping a brisk pace hut he rolled the car twice on both days of racing. Like everyone else, Randy also suf-fered ignition problems from the wet conditions. Johnny Burns brought out his Class 9 buggy. He suffered shifter dif-ficulties on Saturday after hitting a mud buried rock. On Sunday his troubles were worse after he rolled the car. The ignition was not work-ing well and he lost oil pressure. Johnny parked the car without want-ing to do any more damage to the motor. The CORE Pit Club plans on pits for the entire MORE race series.

VORRA Prairie City ••• From Page 36 CORE will also be at the SNORE Buffalo Bill 500 race, scheduled for April 8-10 in Primm, Nevada. · If you have any questions or are looking for a pit club that is experi-enced, fully equipped and willing to set up extra pits when possible, then CORE may be what you are looking for. You can call CORE President Brad Inch at 818352-903 5 or you can check out the Core Club website Update: February 2, 2005: As of February 2nd, the track looks much different. The perimeter parking and RY area is now terraced and smoothed over. The tower and flag stand is now rubble, wirh con-struction of the new media tower be-ginning on February 5th with ground breaking and creating the forms and rebar for the foundation. Some of the dirt work has been done to the upper portion of the track, with 2000 of the 25,000 yards of dirt moved. The overflow parking in the upper portion of the infield is cut and ter-raced. Spectator Hill has been leveled off. Lake Patricia is now drained in preparation for grading and the new year-round pond. The main jump has been widened to 60' and the upper turn is now banked. Steve is putting a lot of effort to make the track specta-tor friendly, trying to minimize the need to use k-rail and huge berms that impair the spectator view. Update: February 5, 2005: Several people showed up to the first work parry, including Steve Sullivan, Tony Bond, Matt Lundershausen from MHL Con-struction, Carl Br6wn from Carl Brown Construction and Bruce Fields. While Steve and Matt con-tinued on the dirt work for the site, Bruce and Tony put up fence to keep people from tearing up the areas that Steve already groomed. Carl started the media tower. Footings were dug with a backhoe and the initial layout of forms was placed. Update: February 27, 2005: Thanks to a break in the weather, Carl Brown brought down one of his employees and with help from Tony, Greg Hossman and others, got the pad for the media tower done. Steve and Matt have completed about 50% of the track, and are con-tinuing to cut new track and widen-ing it out. K-rail has been moved from the entrance to the park to the track, with the initial set placed along the spectator viewing area at the start/ finish line. We also received permis-sion to shut down the track area, whieh is helping with keeping the area orderly while Steve and Matt work. The bricks for the first floor of the media tower will be placed on the 28th and is expected to be com-pleted by the third of March. The top of the tower is to be completed by the first race on March 12-13. The track will be completed by the first race with testing beginning on March 3. The first sign that all of this is paying off: Spike TV will, be out to film the first race. ..-~ Baja 1000 Winners! Martin Christenson Billy Gasper Thanks For Choosing Us!

BITD Parker ... From Page 17 on the same minute. Barnett did the final 20 miles with no brakes, and a length of barbed wire trailing behind him. Nevertheless, he made it to the finish line 25 seconds to the good, to take the win. His car is the first one built for this series. Behind him Th-ompson missed a turn. He reported a fuel leak, a fuel pump that went out and a motor mount that broke twice. In third, about 50 minutes later it was Amrein and Erdely, and in fourth, John Coleman, only five minutes behind them. He drove all the way, and called the course a "kid-ney beater." But then went on to say it was "really good - relatively high speed." Steve Ghamari, who was fifth, said it was a fun race with no dust, and he'd blown a shock early. Copitas eventually finished, seven hours behind the winning car, in sixth place, and the Mamers were seventh, another half hour later. In the "stock" JeepSpeed group, there were ten starters. Again - all Cherokees, and required to run only two laps to get a finish. Jon Louis and Juan Munoz had the lead at the end of the first lap, with five minutes on Giti and Andrea Gowland. In third place it was David Munsterman, another minute back, followed by James and Jim Hunt and Dave Sanchez. Mike Silverson failed to get the first lap done, and so did the team of Rex, Todd and Josh Lair. So only eight were left moving. Then Gow land dropped away early on the second lap. Louis and Munoz held the lead, and took the win by a minute and 40 seconds. Munsterman was second, saying he'd had a "fabulous day." He'd "kind of smushed the left side" when a Protruck passed "too close", and he'd lost his rear bumper with the jack and spare on the last lap, but other than that he was a happy racer. He was over two hours in front of the third place team of Cesar and Joseph Arias, who said only that they were "ready for a beer." In fourth it was Tim Jeffus and Tarek Karan, who said they'd had a "great time - it was awesome." And they, too, were "ready for a beer." The fifth place finish went to the Hunts who said they'd had a great first lap, but broke a track bar mount on the second lap and had it welded on by "random teams". They finished with barbed wire tangled underneath theirvehicle. Guy Alldredge was sixth, two hours later, and an hour behind him came Victor Almeida, who'd been stuck in the mud early in the day. The limited Baja Bugs (Class 5100) started next, with six entries, and also required to run only two laps, Daniel Deen, who drives a sand-colored bug that looks as if it would disappear from sight in some parts of the desert, had no problems at all and put the car into the lead, but only by three min-utes. Behind him Dennis Sletten and Paulden Hepler were finding the course "fast and a lot offun", as they worked to stay in front of the next guy. And that was Dane Crawford, one of the racers from Parker. He was running about 12 minutes back. Jas-per Oyer, who'd rolled on the first lap, ran fourth. He'd had help getting back on his wheels by another team of racers who were broken near him. Michael Sivak was fifth. The sixth car, another Parker team, couldn't make the lap. Justin and Emmett Brinkerhoff apparently had tenninal problems, because it was reported on the radio that the driver had "walked in to Pit 3." Eric Deen took over for the final lap, and also had no trouble. His "car worked great" he said, and it was a "100% clean, clean day." They also liked the way the course was marked. They took the win by 25 minutes. Hepler and Sletten finished second reporting that their rack and pinion was broken and it would "lock up every once in a while. We did a cou pie of odd turns," they said. In third it was Crawford and Mike Byrd, who had an eventful run. They had a flat, ran out of gas, lost a push rod, got stuck and broke the pitman arm. ("We're tie-wrapped together," they said.) They also lost reverse gear, but they finished third. Forty-five minutes behind them Oyer and his teammate, Tony French, who'd had steering trouble, were fourth. Sivak finished fifth about four minutes later, and he was the last one in. Only one Class 9000 car showed up, but they had a successful race, of sorts. Tim Hanna and Tony Modica drove their Suspensions Unlimited car to a two lap finish, even though they had to do about 80 miles on three wheels. Their only comment upon finishing was that "the trans is junk." There were three Class 1800 cars - Sportsman entries, and they also ran only two laps. Or tried to. Emily Staats, who was probably meant as a chase vehicle for her dad's Protruck, didn't even do the first lap, but the team of Daniel B., Daniel R. Bradley and Kristina Bolton, from Hawaii and Nevada, had a small lead at the end of the first lap. In second it was Dan Moore, in an Arlia's Precision Fab chassis. It was a new car and this was the "shakedown run". It featured a Cadillac Northstar aluminum V8 motor, and is intended to run in Class 1500. At the end of their second lap Moore had the win, reporting only two flats along the way. He said that from now on he'd race in Class 1500. The Bolton team had some long tenn problem, but ultimately finished their two lap run in 14 hours, eight min-utes and 55 seconds. That's persever-ance. The BITD moves to Pahrump, Nevada for the Tertible's Town 250 at the end of April. After that there's a break until July 6 through 10, for the McMillin's 1000, then the October 6, 7, 8 Vegas to Reno run, and they finish their year with the December 2, 3, 4 Henderson event.

T h is is the first event since the Sports Car C lub of America gave t he licensin g a nd sanctioning rights of their rally series to Rally America. Todd Jergensen was second on Saturday, took the win on Sunday and that gave him the overall win in the Class 1 contest. SNORE Primm ... From Page 35 There were only three entries in Class 1 and only one of them was able to complete all the required laps both days. In the Class 1 contest on Sat-urday, Tim Lindsay finished his laps in 1:10:10, Todd Jergensen came in 18 minutes later for the second spot and John Gould did not start. On Sunday it was Todd Jergensen turning a 1:06:24 time to take the Class 1 win. Tim Lind-say was a dnf on Sunday and once again, John Gould did not start. With the combined times added together, Todd Jergensen took home the gold medal, the others licked their wounds. There were five entries in the Class 10 contest. On Saturday it was J.C. Dean taking the seven lap win, Jeremy Gubler was giv-ing chase but he finished three minutes and change in arrears and Bryan Freemal was the third and final finisher. Paul Sullivan and T.J. Flores failed to complete their seven laps. On Sunday, the three princi-pals picked up the pace, Jeremy Gubler slid into the top spot with fast time for the class, 1:11:35, J.C. Dean and Bryan Freemal turned identical times, they each recorded a 1:12:48 time for their seven laps. Paul Sullivan got his car going and came in fourth while T.J. Flores was yet again a dnf. When the two day totals were crunched together it was J.C. Dean taking the Class 10 win, Jer-emy Gubler was second, less than two minutes in arrears and Bryan Freemal went home with the bronze medal. Paul Sullivan showed up in fourth place with his one day finish. Six of the big guys showed up for the Heavy Metal challenge and they had a glorious time playing in the mud. First to com-plete the required seven laps on Saturday was Monte Tibbets, the Dakota kid, he did his laps in l: 13:08, John Phegley displayed some of his talent as he came in less than four minutes later in his very tall machine. Third into the finish line was Mark Gonzalez and Richard Blunk was fourth to finish and last to finish. Tammie Gubler and Rick Harrah weren't able to finish their laps. Sunday, with even more slop to plow through, Monte Tibbets cut three minutes off his Satur-day time and took the gold medal with a sparkling 1: 10:32. Mark Gonzalez was eight minutes faster on Sunday and came in second, Tammie Gubler got her steed go-ing and took a very decent third place in Sunday's match. Fourth place in Heavy Metal was Richard Blunk and Phegley, who obviously had troubles, came in fifth, over 20 minutes slower than his Sat-urday time. Rick Harrah did not start the Sunday heat. The combined times for Sat-urday and Sunday had Monte Tibbets taking the Heavy Metal win decisively, Mark Gonzalez came in second, he was nine min-utes out of the win, Richard Blunk went home with the bronze medal and John Phegley was first out of the money, by just a minute! So it ended, a not so great weekend, due to the weather and the condition of the course, but it was a good weekend for the racers, a once in a great while short course race for SNORE, lots of weather conditions to overcome and, all in all, as usual, the racers had a good time, win, lose or draw. Next on the SNORE agenda is the SNORE Buffalo Bill's race, scheduled for the 8th, 9th and 10th of April. See ya all there! r/e@ The next even t o n the cale ndar is th e O ree:o n Trail, April 23rd in Portlan d , Oregon. Second in Production GT were Eric Langbein and Jeremy Wimpey, Mike Merbach and Jeff Feldt drove their Volkswagen Jetta to a nice their Toyota handled the snow with relative ease. second place in the Production Class.
