Trail Notes ... SODA Is OFFICIALLY GONE -The Short Course Off Road Drivers Association (SODA) is officially off the books in the off road racing world. We have scrubbed them from the Happenings pages. We received notification from Tom Schwarzburg the other day. For those of you new to off road racing, SODA was the original short course racing group, operating in Wisconsin and thereabouts, they had a fairly busy schedule and they had lots of racers. But, like all good things, it eventually comes to an end. Thanks for the memories. PORTER RACE CARS NEW WEBSITE -Porter race cars has a brand new website - This site has several new features, a new projects area, a newsletter sign up page and an area dedicated to keeping you up to date on Porter's latest victories. The site will feature some of the new race cars that Porter has been building recently, including vehicles for Dakar, Baja, South Africa, Australia and the list goes on and on. Be sure to tune in and see for 'JOUrself. CORR COMING TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA -All Racers Must Read -Here is the latest CORR news, right from the horses mouth. For the first time in series history, Championship Off Road Racing (CORR) Lucas Oil Series will compete on consecutive weekends, giving fans in Southern California an opportunity to see the most intense short course racing in the world. The 2005 Pro Series Championships will take place September 24-25, 2005, which will be the final two rounds of the Championship Season (Rounds 13 & 14). The course will be laid out on the Otay Ranch in Chula Vista, CA, 20 minutes south of downtown San Diego. On October 1-2, 2005, a first of it's kind non-points race will bring the best drivers from CORR. Desert racing trucks and buggies will also be invited to compete in CORR 's inaugural Off-Road Championship Cup Race. CORR is more than thrilled to bring their show to the west coast. Media interest in the California debut has been incredible! CORR is committed to showing race fans two action packed weekends providing an experience second to none. 20,000+ bleacher seats, Diamond Vision TV and hospitality suites are just a few items to ensure sponsors and fans experience CORR as the greatest off road show in the nation! Four Cup Races will highlight the October 1-2 event, with each event offering more than$ 130,000 in prize money. Qualifying and the first race for the four divisions will begin on Saturday, October 1 and will conclude on Sunday, October 2. An accumulation of points from the two rounds of racing will determine the winner of each of the four divisions. First place finishes based on the division competing will be $50,000, $25,000, $15,000 and $10,000. A detailed payout for the CORR Off-Road Championship Cup Race will be provided at a later date. After consulting the CORR Advisory Board , the teams competing in the September 24-25 CORR Pro Series Championships (Pro-4, Pro-2, Pro-Lite) will be given tow money for the trip to California. $1,000 will be given for all Pro Series drivers traveling over 1,000 miles (one way) and $500 for Sportsman drivers traveling over 1,000 miles (one way). Any Sportsman 2 driver who competes either weekend in the Pro-2 Division will not jeopardize their Rookie Status in the Pro Series. All teams are welcome to stay at the Otay Ranch facility at no charge after the September 24-25 event to prepare for the October 1-2 event. There will be no parking charge for teams for either weekend. DARPA GRAND CHALLENGE -40 teams of the 118 teams that have entered have advanced to the semi-finals for the second anniversary running of the DARPA Challenge. The Challenge is just that, a one hundred fifty mile run across barren desert from Barstow, California to Primm, Nevada by purely robotic vehicles, no humans involved. Last years effort fell well short of any vehicle getting even close to the required mileage but this year, the contestants will be better prepared and their vehicles will be utilizing the tricks and brainpower learned from last years efforts. This year, the governments prize for the winner will be $2 million, double that of last years effort. Of all the entrants, 20 finalists will be selected to compete in the actual run across the desert. Qualification runs will be held at California Speedway from September 27'h through October 5"'· Good luck to all of them. CORR TV SCHEDULE -Antigo -July 29 6pm, August 5 2pm. Crandon August 26 7pm & 8pm. Topeka September 9 8pm & 9pm. Bark River October 14 8pm, October 28 9pm. Crandon October 28 10pm, November 5 8pm. Chula Vista November 5 9pm.

He was one of the founders of the Las Vegas Kart Klub. Don was a firm believer that the public lands were there for public use and he devoted a major part of his life to keeping much of the desert open for racers, hikers and tourists to enjoy. He was a member of the Blue Ribbon Commission, Tread Lightly, Nevada Off Highway Users Council and the Clark County Desert Conservation Program. His contributions to Las Vegas and to the off road racing community were many, he definitely enriched the lives of the people he knew and of those he worked so tirelessly with.

As a result, Nevada motorcycle/ ATV dealers have to compete with out of state dealers that often do not charge sales tax. This puts Nevada dealers at an automatic 7% disadvantage on pricing. According to sales data, this has resulted in somewhere between 35 to 40% of all sales to Nevada residents being transacted out of state. Nevada state law already requires that residents pay this sales tax upon bringing the vehicle into Nevada, but with no registration program there has been no mechanism to enforce this law. At the same time, again with no registration program, there is no state funding available for enhancing or protecting OHV recreation opportunities. Because of these issues, legislation has been introduced in each of the last three bi-annual sessions, but no progress has been made until this year. Previous bills introduced were not well crafted in a manner that addressed the-issues of lost sales and sales tax collection. Nor did they address the creation of a good OHV registration program. So they faced fierce opposition and died. Last year, a two day meeting was held with various Nevada OHV groups to try and hammer out a consensus bill for motorcycle and ATV registration. The result was forwarded to the Nevada Legislature, but, during the drafting phase, several changes were made. Then, during the hearings, new proposals surfaced that were not acceptable to the OHV organiiations. There was also opposition from several state agencies and the Governors office. As a result, a much watered down proposal was enacted this session, with a commitment from all involved to work on a new bill for the next legislative session that will be better for everyone. ORBA Land Use Director Bill Dart has been involved with this issue for five years now with the goal of making sure any legislation passed is fair to Nevada dealers and beneficial to the OHV community. Many Nevada OHV organizations were legitimately very skeptical of any changes in Nevada, as they have witnessed the problems with the California OHV program next door. Dart's goal was to show Nevadans that a good program can be created, modeled after successful programs in Idaho and Utah. The good news from Nevada's dealers is that all Nevada off road motorcycles and ATVs will be required to have a new "Certificate of Operation" sticker to legally operate on most Nevada roads and trails. These stickers will be issued at no charge by Nevada dealers upon request of the owners. For all dirt bikes and ATV's purchased from licensed dealers after 1-1-06, the owners will have to show proof of payment of Nevada sales tax. So the required payment of sales taxes will now have an enforcement mechanism. The other key provision of the bill will allow rural counties and cities to designate all county roads, including paved roads and state highways, as legal for OHV use for up to two miles to connect trails and allow access to services, such as gas, food and lodging.

Ron Dalke and the Safari Offroad machine did it again in Mexico. This time he did it in fine style. Ron's always in the hunt, or broke. Sometimes it seems there is no middle ground, and this race was no exception. Ron earned the overall win with two fast laps for an overall win with some 24 min-utes to spare. He also did it with a high speed barrel roll that sent him off the track, and through a fence.

Michael was very impressed with the new truck, and is looking forward to all the driv-ing time he can find in the new machine. There were a couple new cars in the Unlimited ranks. Garron Cadiente brought his dual sport Sidewinder to Rocky Point for his first Whiplash race. Garron's car was rock solid all day, and he squeaked out the win by a slim 20 second margin over Caesar Fuentes. Caesar had a brand new car at the Rock to Rock as well. His new rocket ship is a Jeffries/ Porter car with an LS2 on tap. Caesar loves the car, but says that the 500+ horses just aren't enough. He'll be swapping in a new mill in no time to boost the ponies to over 700! The Whitmoyer rac-ing team had a good outing in the Mazda powered Class 1 car. The Whitmoyers finished their assign-ment in just a few ticks over five hours. Josh Rigsby looked great early, but completed only one very fast lap. All the others in the class were DNF without finishing a lap. Terry Yoakum was out at approxi-mately the eight mile mark with a broken axle and no spare. Mr. Tatum Motorsports, Rich Ronco was also down very early, and af-ter making some adjustments tried to continue but also came up short. John Martensen was com-peting in a new Class 1 car, and had a multitude of problems, in-cluding some issues with his oil lines, and a wheel that fell off the hub at about the 80 mile mark. He was able to get limping again, only to have the floor pan come loose, the spare tire break loose, the parker pumper quit, and the radio failed as well. He was anx-ious to get out of the desert, and did so upon reaching his crew. With the exception of Ron Dalke who won the overall title, Class 10 fell apart at this race in Mexico. Those guys have those little motors wound up pretty right, and Rocky -Point and all of that sand sure has a way of eating these cars. Scott Rhone survived to a second place finish in 7:17.

In such a case as this, the rules say that (unlike Fl) the cars need only run with the replacement engine for one event. In F 1 the cars must then keep the engine for the following event. Also, note that if a rally car has to have an engine change, despite be-ing classified after a first event, the penalty for changing the engine be-fore the second rally is now 60 sec-onds, not 20 seconds as originally proposed. This was the fourth round of the 2005 Production Car World Cham-pionship and with the final round in Australia, was to be the only oc-casion in the series on which all the contenders had selected for eligibil-ity to score points. After Cyprus, Toshi Arai had consolidated his po-sition as the fastest driver in these-ries, having scored 28 fastest stage times. Arai had hoped to make pre-rally tests in Cyprus but damage re-pairs after Cyprus took too long to carry out for that to be possible. On May 24th the Cyprus Stewards de-bated the legality of the rear suspen-sion top mounts fitted to the Subaru cars driven by Brice Tirabassi and Sebastien Beltran, and eventually the concerns were dis-missed and the original results con-firmed. There were three non-start-ers in the category: Bleiner, Roman (whose medical cause for missing Cyprus had been accepted by the FIA) and "ABA", from which little had been heard, although the Villagra team had still brought his car over from Cyprus, just in case. After driving a Peugeot in Cyprus for Bozian, Daniel Carlsson re-turned to a Subaru WRC, with the Olsbergs team, for this event, as teammate for Tobias Johansson. No fewer than four drivers entered Hyundai Accent WRCs. In the well supported Super 1600 category, this being the premier national formula where there are regular official en-tries from Fiat (Punto and Palio), Opel (Corsa, for whom the former British and US champion David Higgins regularly competes), and Ford (new Fiesta).

"I was on until the police arrived. They told my own side of the road, and me that they would ensure I would go to Court to prove my innocence and that I must be in Court on Fri-day." That was to be the day of Leg 1 of the rally. "Eventually they said alternatively I could admit my guilt, compensate the other driver and avoid a court hearing." Which was what he close to do and only then discovered what compensate meant. "I must buy the other guy's wrecked car. I was told the value I must pay was ElS,000 ...

It was a long race for Patrick Sutalo, he finished fourth in class, seen here in the low desert darkness. Sixth place in the Class 1 contest went to Shawn McCal/um, we must say his car flies beautifully, as you can see. Christian Carr had a very long second lap, he ended up fifth in class, he's seen here making a nice landing. eraged a quite quick 55.3 miles per hour for the race. Not too bad! Craig Smith collected the silver medal, he was some eight minutes in arrears at the end. Jeff Seifert collected the bronze medal this time, he was just two minutes out of second spot. Just a minute later Todd Arthur arrived to claim first off the podium position Scott Beale was the fifth finisher in Class 1, Shawn McCallum came along four minutes later to claim sixth place and Vincent DeJong was the sev-enth and final finisher, having endured fairly slow last two laps. Ron Plunkett was the only Class 5-1600 entrant, he ran a fairly fast lap on the first lap, had some problems on Lap 2 and that was the last he was seen. There were three cars en-tered in Class 9 but only one of them started and he, Rudy Ludeke, made it all the way for the win. Rudy averaged a little over 30 miles per hour for his five laps and was quite happy with his win. There was a similar situa-tion in the Class 10 contest, there were only two cars en-tered and one of them failed to start. They too had to run seven laps for a finish and Rod Smith did just that, he ran an average speed of just over 40 miles per hour, he did have some problems on the fourth lap but recovered and took home the gold medal for the class. There were eight entrants in the 1450 class and six of them made it through their four re-quired laps. When they fin-ished their first lap it was Steve Looney in the lead, having just set fast lap for the class, Steve Artim was running in second, just about a minute behind, James Ederer was in third place, another minute back, Richard Reeves was in fourth place, Joe Belt was running in fifth, Christian Carr was in a long sixth place, Pat Sutalo was in seventh and Roy Garcia was eighth after a terribly long first lap. When the second lap ended, Steve Looney was still the leader, James Ederer had moved up a spot and was now running second, Steve Artim dropped a spot and now was in third place, Richard Reeves was holding his own in fourth, Joe Belt was still in fifth place, Pat Sutalo was up a spot into sixth place, Christian Carr had troubles, dropped a spot and was running seventh and Roy Garcia was running in eighth place.

Gowland came around to take the checkers on the fourth and final lap, just five hours and a bit of change for the race. Believe it or not, Bill Nissley took the second place honors, he spent almost 12 hours completing his four laps and Kurt Larmee disappeared from the scoring charts. Class 5-1600 had to get eight laps in for a finish and, being there was only one entry in the class, Kris Schulz just had to keep motoring around and take the win. Well, he did do just that, but he had troubles on his first and seventh lap and took the checkered flag after 12 hours and 59 minutes out on the course. Talk about a long day! Class 700 had two entered but only one truck took the green flag, Barry Karakas and he didn't have that much fun.

On the sixth lap Sierra went into the lead, Tadeja had big problems and was now 40 min-utes behind the leader, in sec-ond place and Rigel had disap-peared. Both Sierra and Tadeja were back up to speed for their last two laps, Sierra came in for the win and Tadeja was the second place finisher. That's all was! There were four Class 8 trucks scheduled to race their eight required laps but only two of them started and nei-ther one got in their required laps. Matt Towery led the first lap and Raul Flores, who was a late starter came along in sec-ond place. On their second lap Towery continued to lead and his lead was growing as Flores was re-a.lly off the pace. Towery had troubles on the third lap but when the lap was done he had enough cushion to still h old the class lead, but now Flores was only six minutes behind. Disaster struck Flores on his fourth lap, it was over four hours and he dropped to sec-ond place in class behind Towery. On the fifth lap it was only Flores left in motion in Class 8, Towery had disappeared. So, Flores was the unofficial win-ner, having completed five of the required eight laps. Class 9 had two cars sched-uled to start but neither of them took the green flag. There was only one Class 10 car entered, Dave Wood, and he went at his eight required laps with hammer and tong.

so11,e Days Not11ing Goes Right or, Why we use safety Equipn,ent By Judy Smith At the Baja 500 Jeff Stowers and Rodd Fantelli had their Ford truck entered in the Class 8 race. Fantelli was the starting driver. This in itself is pretty amazing, because Fantelli has a serious accident back in January when he rolled the car before loading it on the .trailer to take it to the Laughlin event. He. wasn't wearing his seat belts or helmet and was pitched out of the car, and suffered serious head injuries. His friends and family were scared and worried for him, but he's made a nice recovery and was ready to race in Ensenada. With no serious problems Fantelli got the truck to Trinidad, which was 171 miles into the race. Then his partner, Jeff Stowers, took over. He got just past the water crossing after Simpson's Ranch and rolled the truck, landing it on top of the Rick Johnson Toyota Protruck which was stuck there with bco-ken parts. Ultimately, it took five and a half hours and three trucks to get him out of there. By then it was Sunday morn-ing. The truck was running, but the brakes were bad. Neverthe-less, Jeff decided to drive it out, down the road from Mike's rather than wait several hours for a chase truck with a trailer to get there. Rodd's brother, Roy, was elected to ride in the passenger seat with him. They were to head down slowly, stay-ing in first gear. Apparently Stowers found that hard to do. He picked up some speed. Ner-vously, Roy looked at aU the tools lying around the cab, a11d the battery sitting on the flo_or of the truck, and the missing win-dow nets which had been de-stroyed in the roll-over. He was wearing just a lap belt, as was Stowers. The truck picked up a little more speed. Stowers complained about the brakes. Roy grew more nervous, thinking about his unhelmeted head. He was also certainly thinking about his brother's accident in January, and how close he'd come to dy-ing. And he remembered that he had a daughter. He didn't want to be in that truck when it rolled over the side of a big cliff. And he was more and more certain it would do that. Then Stowers be-came anxious about not being able to slow down. Roy was re-ally scared now, and decided to get out. So he unhooked his belt, opened the door and jumped. A short distance down the road Stowers went off a cliff, rolling over an estimated 14 times, until a couple of big trees stopped his progress. Returning racers from other teams found Fantelli on the road and used their radios to call for help. By then his brother had also caught up and was horrified to find his brother was the acci-dent victim. He couldn't under-stand why he'd jumped, until he heard the whole story. Paul Sullivan from the Doherty team, Wild Bill Dusty Times Wiederhold, part of the BFG Radio Relay team, Bob Hynes, BFG Relay himself, some of Steve Scaroni's people, some McMillin help and their helicop-ter all were involved in the res-cue. Roy Fantelli ended up in the hospital in Palomar with a bro-ken pelvis. It took another five hours to retrieve Stowers' truck and he was also hospitalized with a broken cheek and jaw. At this point it looks as if both injured men will heal up alright. It's too bad to use them as a hor-rible example, but the Fantellis are both now keenly aware of the need for all that troublesome safety equipment. With a full har-ness, a helmet and nets, Fantelli could probably have ridden out the roll-over. Although all that loose equipment in the cab would certainly have done some damage. What their little story demon-strates clearly is that jumping isn't always a good choice. It's a lot smarter to start out with the safety equipment all installed and in use. __ -.,,W August 2005 Sand or Desert ~ Race or Pla DDesert · . r11nam1cs.,-:,;i,;,.,r~;;1-!J,.,.i..,.,..,. 11012-A D"""4H AIIE.

Well, when y0u have a 100 yard front inside a 64th of a mile stretch and at least five tracks to get through the brush and stuff; the poor photographer has to d1oose between lenses and light sources and even where to stand as the cars go rumbling by.

In the first round, Johnny Greaves took the lead from the green flag, and nobody saw anything but his tail from there on. He took an impressive win, his first of the 2005 season which hasn't been too impressive up to now.

LUCERNE 300 RACE -The Club had a bad day at this race by Checker standards. Nine cars started with six of them ending up in the DNF column. Jimmy Hook had the Club's best finish with a fifth in a good class of 1/2-1600 cars (reportedly IOK to the winner). Scott Annand and Eric Strand picked up an eighth place in Class 9. And Andrew Neal, after rolling his 1/2-1600 car and having a flat, soloed it to a 15th. Our DNFs were as follows: Billy Robertson broke a tranny/axle in his Unlimited buggy about the mid-way point. Craig Dillon and Randy Spahr lost an engine early in Craig's 10 car. Potts and Bussey went out late in the race with busted up steer-ing problems in their 1/2-1600. Eric Chase and Art Velasco, Jr. broke a torsion bar and then lost their brakes in Stuart's 1/2-1600 car. B.J. Bates tore up the front suspension in a 5 car he was driving and parked it mid race. And finally, Bob and Mike Wright endoed Mike's 5-1600 car and then later lost the engine. The Pit Captains were Mark Nacke at Checker Main, Big John Files at Checker Pit #l, Ed Jahn at Checker Pit #2, Rever-end Roy at Checker Pit #3, and Jim Gregory ran our Checker radio re-lay. This was the biggest M.O.R.E. race ro date with well over 150 en-tries. Looks like Jim Clements and M.O.R.E. are really on a roll. BAJA 500 RACE -This tradi-tional Baja event was a fiasco from the get-go. A number of spots on the course turned into virtual park-ing lots, with race vehicles lined up at dead stop for what seemed like forever to those who were caught in the middle of them. SCORE even added two hours to the race time limit to help more cars make it to the check points before they were timed out. The uphill grade at Simpson's Ranch was the worst of the lot, with some racers reporting that perfectly good running race cars were parked nose to tail for as far as the eye could see just waiting for the log jam on the uphill, nar-row, rocky and silty grade up ahead to clear. .. with no where to go and nothing to do but wait. This had emotions running very high, as nothing irritates a racer more than just having to wait on something he has absolutely no control over with a perfectly running vehicle. The Checkers sent six vehicles down to this 'parking lot' event, with mixed results. Class 5 was ours at this race, as 'Grand Champion' George Seeley earned another 1st Place finish in the class he's been dominating for years now. And a solid second place went to Vic Bruckmann, a prospective member running outta the San Diego area. 'Quick Vic' once again co-drove with his wife ... in Michelle's car (did I really say that!). Kinda of an un-usual husband and wife set up in this male-only Checkers organiza-tion. But one that obviously works. As an aside, Mr. and Mrs. Bruckmann also won Class 5 at rhe June 18th CODE race in her Baja Bug, along with picking up a third place finish overall in the process. Good show, guys (and gal)! Four of our Checker entries DNFed in this popular race for mixed reasons. Tom Koch simply lost a water pump i:n his Unlimited buggy. Jim Greenway's Class 12 ride went out with c.v. problems.

Trying hard to make up for lost time, 'Stretch' Severson tore up one front corner of his truck, so the Flamingo Racing Team parked it rather than running out of time. The Milo Brown entry was running fine, but finally had to pull out of the event with a DNF when they ran into closed check points due to time lost because of the course blockages. Pit Captains at this race were Malcolm Bryce at Checker Pits # 1 and #7, Billy Robertson at Checker Pit #4, Mark Nacke at Checker Pit #5, and Andrew Neal at Checker Pit #6. The Checker Radio Relay was handled excel-lently by Crackle Lee and Big John Hastings. SUMMER PARTY -On Sat-urday June 18th, just outside of Cal City, the Checkers held our Annual Summer Party. About 140 Check-ers and their guests showed up to party down on a beautiful spring-like day with their off road friends. Partygoers started showing up on Friday to find good places to park. With an all the BBQed grub you could eat and all the draft beer you could drink concept, the stage was set for a good time. Saturday's events included a poker run, nu-merous Checker garhes (motorized and otherwise), Danny Reider's band, big prize raffle (with all the race promoters we support giving away race entries), and an evening cocktail lounge. Needless to say the evening activities moved swiftly along as expected. Injuries were kept to a mini-mum, considering the size of the crowd, but there were a few. The mosr serious was to our Club Sec-retary, once a world class trials rider and stuntman, who decided to show off his stuff about 2 a.m. Fri-day on an old 450 Honda which was to be 'blown up' for the crowd's pleasure the next evening. He took off from camp in a blaze of glory, until he reached the point where the lights from camp disap-peared into a pitch black desert ... and then the noise of the bike sud-denly vanished. After a while, when he failed to return, a search was organized by his brother Checkers. He was eventually found, tits up, at the bottom of a rocky drop off ra-vine with what appeared to be mi-nor injuries and taken back to camp. After a complete Checker physical, a crowd of 'experts' quickly determined that he had no real life threatening injuries (slight concussion.and a few broken ribs), and he was poured into bed. The next day he got up and started moving around in the bright sun-shine ... and then he just DFOed ("done fell out"). He ended up get-ting an ambulance ride to some hospital in Palmdale. Then found himself arguing over some outra-geous $2,000-plus bill for a long wait in the hall and a drawing of a little blood. After threatening to walk out, our Secretary finally ended up settling the tab by payin' $200 and then came on back to the party. The moral to this story is apparently that those 'Trials Rid-ers' ain't worth a shit after dark ... but are very thrifty! The Checker games were varied, and lotsa fun for all the contestants and the spectators. The 'long golf ball drive' was won by Don Thomp-son, who just edged out his closest competitor by less than an inch, by getting his best shot only 13 and a half inches from the target. The 18 mile poker run was a big success, August 2005 with Christy (Hook's wife) and Ja-son winning the high and lo~ hands. The two man horseshoe throwing contest was won by the team of Malcolm 'Bryce and Gary Stairs' son Garret. Both the quad and motorcycle jousts were won by the team of Jimmy Hook and An-drew Neal. These jousts consist of one driver and one rider on each entry, with the rider having a rolled up and taped up newspaper bat in hand and a blown up balloon taped to the top of his helmet. Then, when the contest starts, all the entries circle around and in and oµt, in apparent chaos, trying to break the balloons of all the other contestants. Jimmy Hook and Andrew Neal won both these jousts, with the team switching po-sitions on their ride for each of the two events. On the 'engine blow up' event an old 450 two cylinder Honda was drained of its oil and wired up full throttle. Folks then paid a buck to pick a time that they thought it would take to blow up. Don Wachter was the closest, as the Honda's engine DNFed in one minute and 15 seconds, and then caught fire and burned to a crisp. Big Air Bob Wright (who did a fine job of staging all the games), along with Jimmy Hook, took the top honors in the evening's highlight of all the contests ... the 'Pit Crew Competition'. Using just hand-powered star wrenches, Big Air Bob and Jimmy were the fastest in this tire-changing contest (and these guys spend most of their time as drivers). But, they only won by one second over Mark Nacke and his partner Toby, a couple of regular pitters. After the Club games had officially ended a number of Checker daredevils took turns try-ing to jump over the big bonfire which had died down a bit by rhen. Most showoffs cleared the fire safely, although John Vanetta landed on his face before crawling to safety. And Jimmy Hook's he-roic attempt on a mini-bike resulted in burning a small chunk out of his hand. But all in all a good time was naturally had by all. •••••••• _,_ ORBA Coordinates Successful Effort To Bring Rock Crawling Events Back To Moon Rocks and Formation Of Friends of Hungry Valley Two years ago the Carson City Field Office of the BLM enacted an informal moratorium on Rock Crawling events at the popular Moon Rocks area north of Reno after a few problems were encoun-tered at a permitted event. This moratorium placed doubt on the future of all Rock Crawling events in Nevada. The Off-Road Business Association (ORBA) has been very active in Nevada and has been meeting on a regular basis with Nevada State BLM Director Bob Abbey, as well as coordinating meet-ings with a variety of local OHV organizations and with Don Hicks, Carson City Field Office Manager. The Moon Rocks issue has been dis-cussed in both sets of meetings. ORBA believes that the problems at the last event were relatively mi-nor logistical problems and, with the experience gained since, success-ful events could be conducted now to everyone's satisfaction. During a recent field trip to Moon Rocks that included repre-sentatives from CalRocs, the Mo-torcycle Racing Association of Northern Nevada, Friends of Sand Mountain, Friends of Wilson Can-yon and ORBA Land Use Director Bill Dart, a variety of issues were discussed. The outcome was a change in BLM policy that dropped the moratorium on accepting new Rock Crawling Event applications. CalRocs plans to conduct events in the not too distant future. The second conclusion was a decision by the user groups to form a new umbrella organization, ten-tatively named the Friends of Hun-gry Valley. Hungry Valley is the name of the overall designated OHV recreation area where Moon Rocks is located. The goals of the group will be to coordinate efforts by rock crawlers, motorcy-clists, ATV' ers and Four Wheel Drive enthusiasts to help manage and improve the Hungry Valley OHV area and to seek funding to implement improvements. A for-mation meeting will be held in Reno to launch the new organization. "We are pleased to be able to coordinate meetings between BLM and local OHV organizations and start a productive dialogue that has resulted in a change in BLM policy about Rock Crawling events" stated ORBA Land Use Director Bill Dart. "We are also excited about the formation of the Friends of Hungry Valley, and look forward in assisting this group in their ef-forts to improve the Hungry Valley OHV Area for all types of OHV recreation and organized events" Dart concluded. Jeremy McGrath Showing The Way In an effort to educate Riverside County officials on how a reason-able OHV ordinance can be writ-ten, ORBA and the AMA have teamed up to cultivate a better work-ing environment among the River-side County Board of Supervisors and planning officials and the local OHY-community. The goal of this collaboration is to ensure both off roaders and their neighbors can live together without infringing on pri-vate property owner's rights. The off road industry and user community is very aware of the problems excessive sound creates with neighbors and the surround-ing properties. We believe the key to solving this problem is to moder-ate the sound levels made by the OHV's and to establish reasonable hours of operation. The ordinance as written today is excessive and pos-sibly discriminatory, as it includes special rules only for people who choose to recreate on OHVs. Working in conjunction with all the parties involved we hope to help Riverside County Planning officials adopt an ordinance that the off road community and the county can point to as well written and fair to all parties involved.

CRS CLue· RALLY Rim Of The World By Scott Botto~ley Photos: Motorsports Memories Flat West. The running was by then Keeney in his Honda Civic in third; Hollingsworth in fourth driving his VW Jetta GU and falling to fifth was Jeff Rados in his ex-Jim Pierce Ford Ranger. As a result of poor braking and an alignment that was knocked out of place on Messenger Flat, Bill's solid lead that he had built up began to shrink to Cable. After catching and passing Bill for the lead on Magic Mountain West Cable could only stretch his lead to nine seconds after Del Sur South; but in dramatic style Malik took the final stage Del Sur North by a winning margin of 48 hundredths increasing his final margin of•victory to 20 seconds over Cable after nine stages. Back in the pack, it was Keeney wli.o gave way to Hollingsworth while running in third from SS9 to SS 12; Hollingsworth beat Keeney on SS13 by a margin of nearly 30 seconds to take the third spot. Meanwhile, Keeney pushed Rados down to fifth place after falling off the pace the last two stages. Sixth place went to Jun Andrada and Alan Marasigan in their Toyota Corolla. Doug and Bret Robinson swept the Performance Stock Class on Friday and Saturday. seen here in their VW Golf. With three teams dividing up Saturday's nine stage wins, the Bill Malik and Amity Trowbridge team led with four wins while Cable Rhodes and Kala Rounds finished with three. Summing up his victory, Bill had this to say; "We were very lucky on Satur-day, the two and a half minutes we lost on Friday, due to un-dersteer, was the difference we needed to finish higher on Sat-urday, but luck saw us through Rim of the World -2005, that time of year when rallying hits its highpoint, everyone gets up for Rim, and this year was not disappointing. Competitive, but not by the very nature of rally but by a demonstration of the latest equipment shown, in-fused with sight, color, sound and the realm of something big-ger. It's a turning point for ral-lying in the'U.S., the beginning of a competitive force for teams to show that it is not fledging but well and truly established. This is Rim-2005. In the competitive Open 2WD division, 20 teams de-parted the starting ramps and as day turned into night 13 cars remained to the finish. Less than 30 seconds separated the top four cars after the second running Powerline (SS5); on top was Bill Malik and Amity Trowbridge in Bill's Volvo fol-lowed by Craig Hollingsworth and Jason Grahn tied for sec-ond with Jimmy Keeney and Brian Moody. Fourth went to Jeff Rados and Jeff Dubrule. Af-ter the non-scored stadium stage was run Magic Mountain (SS7) commenced the timed stages which saw Cable Rhodes and Kala Rounds emerging from the dust to take his place in second, while Craig settled into third pushing Keeney into a tie for fourth with Jeff Rados. Fifth went to Jun Andrada and Alan Marasigan. While running in the top stop during the middle stages Bill Malik couldn't shake Cable and his Mazda RX-7 Dusty Times Turbo; the largest gap he man-aged to open was 34 seconds and that was after Messenger Michael and Steven Taylor took 1st Production on Friday and Saturday and 2nd Performance Stock both days in their Ford Ranger. Bob Brinkhurst and Matt Stokes, Subaru Legacy, took 1st CRS GT on Friday but, alas, they were out of the competition on Saturday on SS #9. August 2005 Cable Rhodes and Kala Rounds took 1st in Group 5 both days and they were second in Open 2WD on Saturday in their Mazda RX-7. Dennis Chizma and Matt Gauger took the Production GT win both days in their great looking Porsche 964. to achieve what we did. 'The ser-vice crew was great and Amity (co-driver) knows how to wind me up; she can really crack the whip'." The remaining stage win went to Craig Hollingsworth and Jason Grahn. With only eight of nine stage wins re-corded; Malik, Rhodes and Hollingsworth each took the same time on (SS8) Messenger Flat East due to the Jim Pierce (Open 4) roll-over blocking the stage. Rebounding from an unlikely high center on Del Sur stage Fri-day, pre-rally favorites Wyeth Gubelmann and Cindy Krolikowski (Subaru WRX STi), made up for their DNF with a vengeance on Saturday. They won nearly all of Sarurday's stages but for one, Messenger Flat West (SS9), tak-ing the overall win and class win (Open 4WD) by a margin of over three minutes. Except for Ralph Kosmides' breakthrough win on SS9, it was all over for the field of 18 cars after three 3636 Meade Ave., Las Vegas, NV 89102 15x4 & 15x6.5 Non-Headlocks 15x4 & 15x6.5 Headlocks w/ Rlng & Bolts $149.95 $199.95 15x4 - 1 3/ 4 Rear Spacing 15x6.5 - 2 34 Rear Spacing 702-247-1266 Discount Foreign Car Parts Page 45 ...

.. Wolfie Hoeck and John Dillon, Mitsubishi Eva VII were 2nd overall, 2nd Open 4WD on Friday, but they were a dnf on Saturday. Dan Brink and Vern Anderson drove their Eagle Talon to a very nice 1st in CRS GT on Saturday, seventh overall as well. scoring a time he defaulted thus getting a DNF. Blake would come back and post times on the three remaining stages setting the quickest time on each but to no avail. At the front, and as a consequence everyone moved up a position securing the Robinsons' win in Performance Stock, Doug's winning margin was a whopping two minutes 42 seconds over the Taylors. Third went to Jeremy Fry, who might have finished closer to the Taylors, when he stopped on SS9 to check his car after hear-ing a loud bang (large rock), he lost two minutes taking the pre-caution to see if he could con-tinue, which he did to their amazement. Fourth went to Larry Gross and Doug Young in their Toyota Corolla, who im-proved over the day finishing sixth early on to take fourth place after SS 12 and keep it until the end. Ralph Kosmides and Jimmy Brandt-drove their Subaru lmpreza to 2nd overall, 2nd Open 4WD in the Saturday competition. stages, but it helped that some of the top competitors had ei-ther dropped out or didn't start. Those drivers that were un-able to finish: Jim Pierce-rollover; Peter Workum-went off on SS 13; George Pisek, Paul Eklund, Wolfgang Hoeck-drive line failure; Leon Styles-no boost; and J.B. Niday-loss of oil pressure. Finishing in second in his Subaru lmpreza, after running well on Friday, running in the top four, Ralph Kosmides and Jimmy Brandt took the lone stage victory by a margin ·of 37 hundredths. They ran consis-tently in the top two, except twice, falling to third. Third place went to Eric Lyden and Jay Socha in their Subaru Legacy, taking third place in six of the nine stages. Finishing in fourth nearly a minute and a half be-hind, Dennis Chizma and Matt Gauger in Dennis' Porsche 964 had a promising start with a sec-ond on Powerline SS4, but quickly fell back on the follow-ing stage with fifth place finish. He finished the day with a fourth place tie on Messenger Flat West and a third place on the stadium stage SSll. Rounding out the top five, Chad Davis and Alex Kihurani, finishing in his Subaru lmpreza STi; they scored a well deserved finish on SS 10 with a second place. The dogfight in Performance Stock began quickly on the opening Powerline stages with Blake Yoon and Sarkis Mazmanian in their Acttra lnte-gra establishing a lead of 12 sec-onds over the small field of seven. National Champion Doug Robinson and his son Bret (VW Golf) would have none of that; they won SS7 by a gap of 32 seconds taking the class lead . ----• f7f • 800.656.JJ76 . ~~!!!. . 3 .Aess~ Suitl:#4 • Oda VIJt.\, C'A 91IJfO ~-~-. .,~ .

Meanwhile, holding their own (despite two flats) was the fa-ther and son team of Michael and Steven Taylor in their Ford Ranger; jockeying back and forth with Jeremy Fry and Clay Cullen (Toyota Corolla) while taking turns holding the third and fourth positions. Back in the field Patrick Rodi and Jonathan Schiller (Mazda RX-7) ran wide on some stages and on others was able to stay in the top four. They ran as high as fourth in class during the later stages (SS 11 and 12) but fell back to fifth and remained there to the finish incurring a time penalty of 6.60, which, I'm sure Patrick will not want to discuss. On SS9 Blake went back on top of the class leader board with a 28 second stage win, which would be the last time he did so. Afte~ the second running of Messenger Flats, the leader board looked like this: Yoon, Robinson, Taylor, Fry, Rodi and Gross. At this time only Don Shreyer and Ken Tooker had succumbed to mechanical failure. But on Magic Mountain West (SS 10) the character of the rally changed with Blake not ~ "Had a ball", said CRS GT winner Dan Brink, "We had a good time, a flawless run, no is-sues, no flats, the worst thing that happened to my car in he garage was when moving tools out, l stuck the windshield and shattered it!" It was perfect on course for Dan Brink and Vern Anderson in their Eagle Talon, even with a new navvie and Vern's jitters over his upcoming wedding. They set the early pace taking stage wins on both Powerline roads, just behind them, Chris Wilson and Manin Plumeri (Subaru Legacy) were busy dicing with the team of Robert Brinkhurst and Mat Stokes (Subaru Legacy) for po-sitions two and three on SS4 through 8. Fourth place went to Bristol Keele and Shawn McMahon, after two stages, be-fore she would fall back to fifth and eventually out on SS8 with an overheated transmission.

Craig Hollingsworth and Jason Grahn were 1st GP 2 and 1st Open 2WD on Friday, they're seen here in their VW Jetta.

In fourth place was the veteran team of Nick Hudson and Craig Bishop in their Toyota Corolla; while fifth place went £!:> William Nation and Tina Warner (Mazda 323 GTX), they would move up a place after Brinkhurst DNF'ed on SS 10. At the front Dan brink was using cruise control taking all the stage wins and win-ning by a margin of nearly three minutes. Meanwhile the "Service Man", in his daily driver, second place finisher Chris Wilson, Dusty Times tooled a long staying out of trouble in his service vehicle pro-viding parts and automotive liq-uids to those in need. Accord-ing to Chris, "I dispensed A-frames to Robert (Brinkhurst), water and oil, parts to Chad (Davies) and Marco (Pasten), changed a flat tire, lost a skid plate, suffered oversteer (which he likes in his underpowered Legacy), had a great time and drove my car to work on Tues-day!" He says he doesn't get any better than that. So do we. With the wet weather over the winter came the road re-pairs that were inevitable in the spring, and this year was an ex-ception. Organizers Ray and Donna Hocker had their work cut out for them enlisting the help of many (for too numer-ous to mention here) including the Gibeaults. Some drivers I've spoken to have expressed their gratitude for all they have done, and have realized that without the necessary repairs Rim would have not taken place this year. As in other years the support for an event of this size is enor-mous, returning to expose their cause was Habit for Humanity• who served up food provided by Subaru -Western Region. Michelin donated a set of tires that were auctioned to raise monies for a local Antelope Val-ley Food Bank. Media coverage of Rim took a quantum leap when the CRS affiliate came and did a story for the late evening news. Green Light Production were again hired to tape for viewing on a Speed Channel program whose origins are in the United King-dom called Motorsports Mundial. The pavilion located in the Antelope Valley fairgrounds was a scene of automotive madness attracting approximately 2500 spectators, a Solo 2 conducted by NASA, drifting exhibition, vintage car show conducted by VARA and an import car show presented by the Gravel Crew. Contributing their support was AutoSport Engineering, presenting sponsor along with Tombstone Paintball Park, sponsor of this year's Del Sur stages who also had a hand in the road maintenance con-ducted weeks before. __ . .,,., Don"t be snowed by anyone sa~ng sportsmen don't help v.ildlife.
