Robby Readies For Dakar • In preparation for the 2007 Dakar(tm), Robby Gordon of Team Dakar USA unveiled his revised Hummer H3 race truck for the international media at the Dumont Dunes Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area near Baker, California last Thursday. In addition, Gordon introduced his navigator for the upcoming Dakar(tm), Andy Grider, a veteran of the endurance rally. Team Dakar USA competed in the Dakar(tm) for the first tirpe in January 2006, drawing attention due to their radically different vehicle which was capable of high speeds across the Sahara desert. Unfortunately, the team eventually dropped out of the race with a damaged radiator after impacting a mound of camel grass. Learning from past experiences and with the help of major supporters such as General Motors and Toyo Tires(r), the team has made significant changes to the race truck. Extensive wind tunnel testing has resulted in major changes to the Menards Engineering carbon fiber body, including a shallow windshield angle and a sloped rear body section resulting in less drag. An onboard tire inflation/ deflation system makes it much easier to adjust the air pressures of the J7X14.50R15 Toyo Open Country M/T(tm) tires while on-the-fly. Greater overall speed also _comes from a GM Racing LS7 (427-cubic inch V8) attached to a six-speed Alb ins sequential transaxle. One of the team's Hummer H 1 's was also on display. The Moroccan theme event included a Moroccan-style tent and cuisine, along with camels to help provide the overall experience. In addition to U .S. television and print media, members of the foreign press attended from countries as far away as Great Britain, Spain, Brazil, Germany, China and Honduras. Good luck to Robby and hi; team in their latest Dakar adventure. C ODE Mexicana Logistics 300 -CODE ran their October race and a good time was had by all.

He's still learning the ins and outs of the sport, and in Saturday's practice he rolled his truck off of Turn 5. He said he'd had a rough week because at a recent outing he'd gune to move a friend's truck, and somehow it spun and flipped, dumping him on his unhelmeted head. He'd had no belts on, not expecting any prob-lem with the truck. he said that was the "first time I ever rolled anything and - I did it twice in a week." He was unscathed in the practice roll-over.

On Sunday when they came back they were missing six of their members. In the Desert 7 class, Oscar Lara got the lead by the third lap, and then fought off Sherlock until the seventh lap, when he finally got by. Sher-lock took the win, with Lara in second place. In the 7S class Holly Hoffman got the hole-shot and went into the lead on the first lap, and stayed there for four laps while Michael Ballard put on the pressure.

It was the first time Johnson had raced in about eight or nine years, and he was having a wonderful time, and looked as if he'd forgotten nothing.

Oberg went uneventfully on in the lead in the meantime, and now Renezeder was second and Barlow third. They were dealing with lapped traffic now. On the back straight, Ren-ezeder pulled even with Oberg, and Oberg held his position, not letting him by. But ultimately, down in the Turn 3 hole, Ren-ezeder got by, and took the lead. Renezeder went on to win, and Ricky Johnson somehow slid up into second place, while Oberg finished third. When the Pro Zs came back on Sunday there were only 16 of them. A four-truck crash put Evan Evans out with a damaged front end, and Ricky Johnson was suddenly parked in the in-field.

Now it was Greaves, Huseman and LeDuc, and that's the order they held to the finish flag. The final event on Saturday's program was the Super Buggies, which brought 17 cars out onto the track. This group doesn't have the mandatory yellow flag lap midway through their race, but they also don't get to race 16 laps. Their race ends at 13 laps. Cory Heynen got the hole shot, and with Jeff Elrod in pursuit took off. They all got through the first couple of laps, and in fact, no one developed any problems until about the fourth lap. Aaron Hawley was fourth, then third, and by the fifth lap had himself up to second place. He was clearly on a mission. On the sixth lap Hawley took over the lead as Heynen's shifter broke and he had to give up the game. Hawley continued to build his lead, with Gary Nierop, who'd moved up to second fol-lowing and building his own cushion. Elrod was third. On the eighth lap Todd Stemmerman's car was sounding unwell, and by Lap 9 they'd become strung out, so there was no passing going on. Hawley continued to lead to the end, with Nierop behind him in second, and that's the way they finished. Elrod was third, and there were another six cars still on the lead lap. On Sunday there were only 14 cars when they came back. Cory Heynen got the hole shot, and everyone got through the first three turns, but in Turn 4 there was a six car tangle that was slow to untangle. They came apart from the mess one at a time, and had the effect of stringing the cars out along the length of the course early in the heat. Heynen stayed in front, with Nierop in second and Elrod third. Hawley, who wanted to be up there with them was running hard, but he'd been in the early tangle and had a long way to go.

The Jason Baldwin Memorial Race was the final event for the weekend, but they'd qualified for it on Friday before the weekend began. Both the Pro 2 and Pro 4 trucks were going to race, and there were 24 entries, all vying for that big winner-take-all purse in a ten lap race. There would be no mandatory yellow flag for this one. The difficult thing to do would be to start them in some way that would erase the edge the Pro 4 trucks have because of their four wheel drive. There were eight Pro 4s and 16 Pro 2s. CORR de-cided to put th e Pro 2 trucks on the front straight, lined up Le Mans style, and start the Pro 4s in the usual place, which looks to be about a quarter mile back.

Sebastien Loeb won his 2"1'11 WRC rally in Japan, he drove his Citroen Xsara to the win with a mere six seconds in hand when it was all over. The cars for both Citroen team entries (Loeb and Sordo) were in the blue Gauloises colours but after his crash in Finland the third entry for Xavier Pons was cancelled. This was the second successive rally entered which World Champion Sebastien Loeb had not yet won. Team chief Van Dalen proudly pointed out the all-blue Xsara of nu·mber two driver Dani Sordo. "You won't see a num-ber two car in that colour an-other time", alluding to the fact that Sordo was expected to run in that car for the rest of the There were mixed emotions tor Kronos Citroen, there were celebrations for the "Greatest", as Sebastien Loeb finished Rally Japan not just the winner of the event, by 5.6 seconds, but also the winner of more world cham-pionship rallies than any other driver.

Victory however was not handed to Loeb on a plate but only came after Marcus Gronholm made two small errors. The duel be-tween Loeb and Gronholm was ·amazing, with top speeds much higher than in previous years. These two drivers won every stage save the final superspecial, which went to Mikko Hirvonen. The tinge of disappointment for Kronos came with the post-event exclusion of their number two driver Dani Sordo for a breach of the safety belt rule, only no-ticed as a result of the crew ask-ing for review of their time af-ter being delayed on Stage 26. Once again, Subaru had a ter-rible event, this time their cars had brake and transmission troubles, an embarrassing situ-ation given the recent an-nouncement of more manage-ment changes in the Japanese side of the team.

The car had in fact been seen earlier this year in Corsica and Sardinia in the hands of Gigi Galli, when it was painted bright Pirelli yellow. Manfred was asked if the team had stripped the yellow paint off the car so that the fresh blue and white paint could be ap-plied to bare metal, and so save weight. He dismissed the idea. "You forget that myself and my co-driver Ilka Minor are to-gether the lightest crew in the world championship. For us there is no need to save weight. We need all the weight the team can find in order to comply with the minimum weight rules!" Manfred then checked the car to find where there was red paint under the yellow as well. Ford's number two team, Stobart VK, had two new 2006 version Focus WRCars, which they also planned to use in Aus-tralia and then New Zealand, running older version cars on the remaining events. This didn't mean they were state-of-the-art, however. The FIA regu-lations for M2 teams say that they must not drive cars in a form homologated later than 1st January 2006.

It was damp, but overnight Marcus Granholm gave it his all but he came up six seconds short of the win in his Ford Focus RS, seen here at speed. Group N. Not so many of the top Japanese drivers had the chance to contest this event, be-cause Japanese championship regulations allow a greater de-gree of modification to cars than permitted under FIA Group N rules. Arguably the three top Japanese drivers of the moment are Arai, Kamada and Nutahara, both of the lat-ter two drivers involved in PCWRC contested on this event.

To the great regret of Japanese enthusiasts, Suzuki did not bring cars for ei-ther Wilks or Andersson to the The writing was on the wall at Shakedown: Fords were first and second fastest, with Subaru's Chris Atkinson equal second, on the same time as Mikko Hirvonen. Sebastien Loeb was 1.8 seconds slower in fourth place. The Ceremonial Start was again in one of the main streets in Obihiro and, encouraged by a pre-start rally show, a good crowd saw the cars off. the conditions were drying and the first leg looked like being nicer than the previous few days. The first day's route comprised two loops of four stages, the first three being short sections and the fourth (and eighth) at 34km the longest of the event. The day was rounded off by two runs of the Superspecial. Marcus Granholm took the lead with his Ford team-mate Mikko Hirvonen in second place with Petter Solberg hold-ing onto third place, ahead of Sebastien Loeb and Manfred Stohl. With only 11 World Rally Cars taking part, the top drivers were soon past but the competi-tion between them was fierce. Loeb started to apply the pres-sure on Stage 3, and jumped past specification to the cars used by two Suzukis.

(A Chinese driver on the Hokkaido Rally earlier in the year failed his test -for driving on the wrong side of the road!) After the misunderstanding in Finland about the use of fire-proof underwear, the Clerk of the Course announced that un-derwear had to be worn not just during special stages but at all times during the rally. In the PCWRC, the second half of the season began after a three month break with 12 en-tries. Not qualifying for this event was Japanese driver Toshi Arai competing here instead in a WRCar. Series leader Nasser Al-Attiyah, running for the QMMF team, had also chosen this as one of the two events he would miss. Subaru Rally Team Russian driver Sergei Uspensky had to miss the event as a result of a testing crash back home but Motoring Club driver Loris Baldacci, who also had a 2005 Spec C lmpreza, was allowed to take over the entry. One entry was withdrawn, that of the Subaru of English Gentleman driver Nigel Heath, having to remain in Britain on urgent business. Two cars were new to PCWRC, the Mitsubishi Lancer IX for Furnia Nutahara and the Subaru lmpreza 2006 for Leszek Kuzaj. The three Tango Team Mitsubishi cars from Ar-gentina appeared with Paraguay registrations, but were the same as seen earlier in the year. The rally had a predictably strong support from drivers of locally built cars. The (normal) maximum number of 90 crews had entered the event, so for the third year running there was a full house for the rally.

Nutahara had no sooner edged back into the lead than he punctured and drove for ten kilometres on a flat tyre, again dropping back behind the Finn. Latvala in turn hit a rock hard and said he was lucky the tyre did not deflate. Mirco Baldacci was fighting back to re-gain lost ground but had to stop and change a flat tyre, staying eighth of the ten cars still run-ning. Kuzaj had a clean run and rose from fifth to third. Pozzo drove five kilometres non stop on a flat, but still managed to climb from seventh to fifth. Ligato damaged his suspension at the end of Stage 7, he drove slowly through eight, falling from third to fifth. Teiskonen changed a flat tyre on 8 (drop-ping from fourth to sixth), while Stefani Marrini lost a lot of time with brake failure and also a puncture. Loris Baldacci went off the road. Quite a change in fortunes! Will World Championship rallying be like this when they ban mousses in future? Challeng-ing the top PCWRC drivers in Group N overall was the non-championship driver Katsuhiko Taguchi. On Stage 5 he had equalled Mirco Baldacci's best PCWRC time, on Stage 6 he was faster than all the championship drivers, but then on 7 he went missing. It took a l~ng time be-fore his story unfolded. Deep in the forest, out of telephone or radio contact, the car was sta-tionary on the side of the track with a smashed intercooler and water radiator, but there was no sign of what the car had hit. Leg 2 11 Stages, gravel, 128.02kms. No doubt about it. Not a drop of rain to be seen, clear blue skies nearly all day, flies were out in Australian quantities. After two successive rallies in which meteo work was fundamentally critical, men with the sophisti-cated barometers were not needed on this occasion. The sec-ond leg of the rally comprised nine orthodox stages, and a couple more (extremely short) runs round the Superspecial. First car through the stages was Gareth MacHale in his private Focus, followed by the two Stobart Focuses, making three Fords in a row. This soon turned out to be a rally to forget for the leader Marcus Gronholm. The first two stages in the five stage opening loop went fine but then, uncharacteristically, he made three mistakes in as many stages. On Stage 13 he went into a ditch and out again. From 13.1 seconds the lead came down to 6.3. On Stage 14 he had a big 270 degree spin, stalled and had to reverse to get going again, and suddenly Loeb was 17.4 seconds in front. Then on Stage 15 he braked too late for a left hand bend, slid off and again had to reverse. His deficit was now 27.9 seconds. The rally had seen its defining moment, and maybe that of the 2006 World Drivers' championship as well. New Dusty Times leader Loeb was serene, it was all going to plan, also for third place Hirvonen. Atkinson started to have a better event, no more brake troubles for him, though on his way to passing Stohl for fourth place he lost his right front wing in a non-stop excursion into a ditch. Arai in the third Impreza was not so happy, "The clutch _is now work-ing fine but the car is unstable, it goes from under to oversteer and vice versa without warning. 11 Solberg was not having fun at all. On every stage but the short-est one, he suffered more brake troubles, this time coupled with the differential problems: both he and Atkinson now had the same brake supplier as Arai. Wilson was out for the day. The turbo pressure failed on the way up to the first stage. In two short stages he had fallen to 11th, and then on Stage 13 he was caught by Atkinson, pulled to the side of the road to let the Australian past, and slid into a ditch from which there was no exit. During the afternoon the Ford mechanics got to work on Wilson's car to discover that the turbocharger appeared to have seized. The unit was changed and the car made ready for competing on the Sunday stages. Team chief Malcolm Wil-son confirmed that since the new Mazda-based engine was used at the start of the 2006 version programme, no turbo had failed before. The Rally was now in a pattern with Solberg finally going better and making a couple of second fastest times, but Loeb continued sailing on to becoming, statistically, the best rally cl.river ever. Arai had a quick off road excursion on the short Stage 16, but as the car was driven back to the road, it hit the Japanese photographer Kobayashi, a personal friend of the driver, who suffered a bro-ken leg. Nutahara was taking no risks in second place in PCWRC, "Af-ter suffering three punctures yes-terday, I just didn't want any more trouble." Latvala was hold-ing everything wooden in sight when he spoke about being the only PCWRC driver to have had absolutely no problems so far on this event. Kuzaj punctured near the start of Stage 11 and then drove eight kilometres on the flat, "We have also lost our con-fidence with the pacenotes", he added. From lying third over-night he was now down to fifth, having been passed by both Pozzo and Ligato. Fellow Argentine Beltran, who restarted under SupeRally rules, stopped on the road section to the first stage of the day. In his accident the day before a branch had entered the windscreen and impacted the dashboard, evidently damaging some wiring. Loris Baldacci re-started under SupeRally rules and immediately left his lowered roofline Subaru in pare ferme ready for the restart on Sunday. Kamada stopped in the forests when seventh after a suspension belt broke. In the afternoon Kuzaj stopped to change an-other flat tyre. Teiskonen was feeling unwell but was fighting on, "I would be perfect if I could have a Finnish sausage right now." Ligato lost his power on the final orthodox stage with apparently an electrical fault and suddenly Mirco Baldacci's mis-eries got even worse when he stopped with turbocharger fail-ure. Leg 3 6 Stages, gravel, 93.90kms. Was this going to be a battle to the finish, or would the crews settle for their present positions over the final seven stages? Loeb and Gronholm had been in this position plenty of times before, the game plan was normal -to check the split times to see how fast their rival was driving and react accordingly. Among the 81 cars which set off on the final leg, all except eight were Japa-nese-built with makes seldom seen on the WRC circus doing well. Daihatsu cars were leading no fewer than three of the eight classes with their Boon (Sirion) model, a good performance considering these are only used on this and Hokkaido Rally in this form, because they run un-der different technical rules in national championship events. Honda, Toyota and Suzuki were also leading their respective classes. The route now headed to the north west of Obihiro, with photographers in despair that the route had been altered, no longer passing the famous local roadside temple building. Highest placed first-timer on the event was Sordo who explained just how tricky the rally was, "It is most unusual that you can see right the way round corners on the stages, and that means it is so difficult to judge your brak-ing distances." The final day's stages had, as always, been very difficult to recce and the first to discover this was Companc who slid off and lost five min-utes on the opening stage. Sordo dropped seven seconds and a place to the recovering Solberg. On the second stage more trouble afflicted Solberg and he dropped a minute which let Sordo and Arai pass him. Solberg's problem was again brakes, but quite a different sce-nario. Pedal right to the floor. One sensed that Subaru really did not know what the cause of this trouble was, considering that Arai and now Atkinson were trouble free. Stohl contin-ued to hold fifth place, despite losing fourth gear, while Sordo carried on as consistently as he could. Kronos boss Marc Van Dalen was amazed, "This is quite the best race we have had this year! Those guys at the front are absolutely flat out. We have had some stages run a quarter minute faster than last year, in similar conditions! 11 Loeb was not going to be handed his 27th win on a plate. After the late morning service halt there were three stages left to run with Sesbastien 15. 7 sec-onds ahead of Marcus. On the 17km long Stage 25, Marcus re-duced this down to 8.8 seconds. Then came the 24km Stage 26, at the end of which the gap was down to 5.4, followed by just a single run round the Superspe-cial stage. Loeb, however, re-pelled the onslaught to win by a margin of 5.6 seconds. Behind there was carnage. MacHale, ly-ing ninth, hit a bridge on Stage 25, dropped to tenth and then did not start Stage 26. On Stage 26 Companc went off the road again, this time for good. While Loeb's win gave December 2006 Third overall in Japan went to Mikko Hirvonen and Jarmo Lehtinen, they're seen here in their Ford Focus RS. Citroen another consistent score now with a new turbocharger. in the Makes' championship, Back again also were Kamada and Sordo dropped back behind Beltran. Latvala held a lead of Arai on the final forest stage, just over a minute over when he was baulked by the Nutahara. Ligato's electrical Companc crash and was set to trouble was cured but then he finish seventh, but which would punctured and drove 7km on a not have affected the Makes' flat, "I only realised we punc-championship points.

3rd Annual Wish Ride By Maryetta Bowman Joe Myers was first off the line with Ben Parker in the right seat, needless to say Ben was thrilled with the ride. Don Wall and SNORE's 3rd Annual "Wish Ride", ben-efiting children with life threatening illnesses of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, was not only a major success this year, but it has more than doubled in size. With 51 race cars, trucks and four seat pre-runners and 75 "Wish Kids" with their families, the day made wonderful memories for all. Racers came from Nevada, California and Arizona to help the "Kids". The "Ride" was held on Oc-tober 1, 2006, on a portion of the South Coast's SNORE HE 250 race course and the old Mint 400 course. The racers and their families, as in past years, volunteer their time and money to give a special day just for those kids that spend the majority of their time in hos-pitals and doctor's offices throughout the year. One boy recently spent 55 days in the hospital but was able to make the ride. "This day is just for them" said Don Wall, Creator of the "Wish Ride" and Vice President of SNORE.

Joe made more than a dozen runs with different kids. Full Throttle/Coca-Cola had their huge rig there. They served all the drinks and gave out T-Shirts and posters for all the kids. Garry Wdowiak of Coca-Cola was overwhelmed and said they will be at all future "Wish Rides". Wal-Mart pro-vided over 600 hamburgers and hot dogs for the kids and all participants. December 2006 John Phegley drove Tom Hood's car and the ride that Travis McDonald got will stay with him forever. The event opened up with performers singing the Na-tional Anthem. There were two huge inflatables for jumping, Life's Safari had their petting zoo and even included snakes of all kinds that the kids loved touching. The racers handed out autographed pictures and posters throughout the day and all the children received Checkered Flags from SNORE. After all, the kids were all "Winners" that day. Complimentary 8xl0 photos of all the kids in cars as well as all volunteers were donated by Martee's Race Photos. Although this started out as a day just for the "Wish Kids" to play, this event has taken on a life of its own. From the small donations of $50.00 to the large ones from local Las Vegas area businesses and the racers themselves, approxi-mately $15,000.00 was do-nated as of event day. Dona-tions are still coming in. It takes $5,000.00 to grant one child their wish such as a trip to Disneyland or Hawaii, in-cluding their families. All costs are paid by the donations. And all donations go directly to the Make-A-Wish Founda-tion. There were large donations from St. Rose Dominican Hos-pitals, the Wilson Racing Team and Joe Myers, driver of the Full Throttle race car. .. But the largest donation, one granted wish, came from within SNORE ... a racer and three years past president, Regan Gubler and family, who race a Class 8 truck and par-ticipated in the last two "Wish Rides", a racer who jut wanted to do more. Legacies for future racing families and lasting memories for the "Wish Kids" were made that day. A proud day for Off Road Racing. You MUST Read This Story! would like to start this newsletter by explaining a man's vision. His name is Don Wall. Don is the Vice President of the Southern Nevada Off Road Racing Association. His visions at first blush sounds a little crazy, reckless and even irre-sponsible but, make no mistake his vision and passion for life is nothing short of inspiring. You see, Don had this crazy idea of taking his love for Off road racing and his compassion for children with deadly ill-nesses and bringing them to-gether. With this vision the "Wish Ride" was born. When I first heard of the idea, I thought this guy rolled his race car one too many times. You can't take sick children with physical limitations and life threatening diseases, put them in a 700hp race car and give them a ride across the rugged terrain of the desert. Well, I am a believer today. This weekend my life has been changed for-ever. I will carry this experience in my heart for the rest of my life. On Sunday, the 1st of Oc-tober, Gary from LY. Coke, Rick from Downey Coke, Kenny and I all went to the "Wish Ride" with the Full Throttle Car. Get ready be-cause the next few paragraphs are going to pull on some heart strings. The event started at 1:00 p.m. but Don asked that we ar-rive around 8:00 a.m . Three weeks prior to the event during a phone conversation I found out that his food sponsor had withdrawn his donations. Well, T J Flores helps Chris Duran buckle up in preparation for his ride in the Las Vegas Dissemination Class 1 car. ~~-------------------------·---Dusty Times

WENDOVER 200 Cretsinger Takes The win Text & Photos: Mike Chamberlain Richard Crestinger was the Heavy Metal and the overall winner at the Wendover 200, seen here in his Ford on the last lap.

This was Richard's first time with his Ford and winning over a very com-petitive field speaks volumes for his team's efforts. The Wendover 200 was held September 1st and 2nd, located just outside of Wendover, Nevada which is located toward the north-east border of Nevada and Utah and signaled the end of the 2006 season. This season has seen a sig-nificant drop in overall vehicles. One thing is for sure, drivers, co-drivers and families sure have had to endure with family issues and even at least one tragic loss which has accounted for some of the Dave Morse and crew celebrate their Challenger Class win, Dave was really haulin', his elapsed time of 5:58:48 was a good one. drop. Mike Chamberlain's family who takes the photos, writes the articles and helps as much as they can during the races lost their granddaughter just three weeks be-fore her fifth birthday.

Mike Chamberlain was asked to preside over the MC du-ties for Glen Cain who was home enjoying his newborn. It was great to be able to represent BORE in honoring not only the race awards but to also wrap the season up with the overall points champi-ons. Awards were passed out to all race places and many thanks and appreciation went from the recipients to all their team mem-bers, families, sponsors and vol-unteers that make the BORE races happen. The BORE Points Cham-pi_on for 2006 went to Dave Morse with runner-up going to Mike Sims. An overall Sportsman of the Year honor went to Mike Sims of Simco Racing. This award is voted on by all drivers to award the person that truly shows not only the spirit of open and fair competition but who shows the best in a driver that best shows what BORE is all about and Mike Sims is that person. Congratula-tions goes to to all winners of the BORE 2006 season. Following the awards banquet, Mike asked anyone who had any input on what or how we as BORE can make things better not only for current members, but attract new members. We received many recommendations and by the time you read this article rest assured that changes are in the works. In closing I would like anyone read-ing this article and may have your curiosity peaked, come give BORE a try, you won't regret it. Over this winter we are looking at BORE and plan on making it better for all. We at BORE realize that times are getting harder and harder for the working class racer.

If you have questions and/or want to make sure your concerns are addressed, please feel free to send me an e-mail at Mchamberlain 7 and I will make sure your concerns are addressed. Thank you volun-teers who have helped all or part of the year. Without your dedi-cated help each race BORE racing would not exist.

An Evening In The Park With Ivan ··iron Man··stewart By Byrle Moore nc u e 1n t e am ience o Balboa Park, in San Diego, are the zoo and multiple museums. The Museum of Man, the Air Museum, the Art Museums and of course, the Automobile Museum. The lat-ter, on a Thursday night in Au-gust, is where this little story be-gins, ends and is told. Legend as defined in the 'Ameri-can Heritage College' die. tion. ar. y, is 'an unverified story handed down from earlier times.' So I guess Ivan Stewart doesn't exactly qualify as legend since most of the records he has achieved have been verified. Eighty-four wins in about a thousand events. International wins, United States wins, Driver's Championships, wins on dirt and in stadiums. You tell me if thirty plus years of winning constitutes a legend. This writer has been following the off road racing game for only the past six years and one of the first names I heard was "Iron Man"; relating to a person who hadn't even been competing in a car, truck, or buggy, since the late seventies and into the nineties. So when I learned that Stewart was going to talk about some of that racing history, I made myself avail-able for those history lessons. At the Automotive Museum, on The Third Thursday of each month, various and sundry indi-viduals, who are an integral part of the automotive world, are in-vited to talk about what it is they do. On the 17th of August, it was Ivan Stewart's chance to relate some history. "I didn't even start racing until I was 27, in most sports that would have made me an old man," Stew-art joked. "Hey, these kids, nowa-days, start out on motorcycles and quads and go-carts when they are less than five. I could've had a 20 year head start, if I'd started when I wanted to, when I was eight or . ,, nme. That's right, Ivan knew what he wanted to do early on. "Although my first goal was to be the managing supervisor of the Atlas Fence Company. My Mother worked there as a secretary, my older brother was an ironworker Dusty Times an a ot o t e ta aroun t e dinner table in those days was about the Atlas Fence Company. I decided, well I think I'm going to be the general superintendent of the fence company. It will make my family proud and I will have ac-complished something. Shortly af-ter I turned 30 I became the gen-eral superintendent. I had to work my way up through the ranks, but I got there. Now, when I tell this story people want to know what it has to do with off road racing. I explain to them that it's about set-ting and achieving short and long term goals. One accomplishment leads to another and then the ulti-1nate success." "First I had to become the man-aging supervisor of the fence com-pany my Mom and brother worked for," Stewart said. "I thought if I was going to be working with fences that I may as well be the boss?" Regarding racing Ivan said, "I had also been thinking about all those trucks and buggies, making all those jumps and all that dust and decided, I still want to do that." After reaching the first goal, in his late 20's, he decided to spend the next 35 years doing what he wanted to do, when he grew up. Become a race car driver. I think we can all agree that he reached that goal too? Not only did he become a cham-pion desert and short course racer, but has since developed a business and contracts that still keep his hands 'wrapped around a steering wheel', figuratively speaking. Names like Walker Evans, Parnelly Jones and Mickey Thomp-son were names that drew the Iron Man into the sport of off road rac-ing. "I'd heard of Walker Evans, in fact I went to the Baja 500 in '72, to watch him race. After that, I not only wanted to race against him on a track somewhere, I also decided I wanted to beat him." Stewart continued, "Desert racing in the 70's and 80's was really start-ing to develop. The Mint 400 and other races like the Baja 500 and 1000 were growing with leaps and bounds. I just knew I wanted to be Photos: Foto-Baja-Mex a part o it. Anyway. The legend continues. A buddy from his high school called Ivan and told him that he was going to build a buggy to go desert racing. Bill Hyrinko was that buddy and in 1973 Stewart not only helped build the car he also took on the job as co-driver. They entered the Mint 400 in Nevada. Ivan said, "I think Bill used to try and hit every rock in the desert. I told him the object was to go around the rocks. Any-way, that was my first race." Later, just before the Ensenada 300, that same year, Hyrinko called to tell Ivan that he had fallen off a ladder, had broken his leg, he told Stewart he would have to drive. Stewart was overjoyed, not be-cause of Bill's broken leg, but here was his chance to become an off road racing driver. "A guy by the name of Earl Stahl and I were set to go. The race started in Santo Tomas and was staged on a 50 mile track. There were 50 or 60 cars entered, prob-ably 10 or 12 in our class. We went about three miles and I rolled the buggy into a ditch. There I was, December 2006 the car on its side, and my career as a driver was looking somewhat bleak." Ivan continued, "I remem-bered that we had just passed a pit about a half mile back so I bailed out of the car and went back and asked some guys to help us get up-right. They did, we got under way, but about 10 miles later the throttle linkage broke." "There weren't a lot of chase crews in those days and we had been passed, by nearly everyone, while we were in the ditch. Again my career as a driver seemed to fade before my eyes. We thought about it and I suggested to Earl that we use a crescent wrench as a throttle connector. It worked, ex-cept I had the wrench with the two cable ends, hooked to it, in my right hand and the steering wheel in my left. Who's going to shift the gears? Long story short, Stahl shifted gears; he even got the right gear most of the time, but the amaz-ing thing was that we ended up winning the race. In other words, don't quit until there is nothing left to do." And maybe not even then? In 1974 Hyrinko signed up as the driver of record and then told Ivan, 'why don't you drive?' "I thought sure, why not, I want to drive and I ended up driving every race in '74. Hyrinko won the Driver of the Year and hadn't driven an inch." Most of you know how the Driver of the Record works? Anyway. The legend begins. "Actually the name Iron Man came from an award that was ini-tiated by the Valvoline Oil Com-pany in the late 70's. The Iron Man award was part of the con-tingency prizes during the early Baja S00's and Baja lO00's. Itwas given to anyone who soloed and won the event. That award also came with a $500 check. I wanted that 500 bucks," The Iron Man laughed. Since that time, the title 'Iron Man' has been parlayed into a full time industry, with the backing of Toyota and others. "It was mainly Toyota, starting in 1982 with the Mickey Thompson stadium racing. The Toyota guys weren't afraid to talk about our accomplishments. We built an almost unbeatable racing organization." Ivan contin-ued, "What Toyota had was the desire, the heart, the determina-tion, and of course, they had the money. All those things that it takes if you want to be a leader in any game. The press coverage and word of mouth did the rest. I have been under contract with Toyota for the past 23 years." "I don't race any more but you can ask me anything you want about marketing," he grinned. Stewart went on to tell other stories and shared 30 years of memories with the crowd. His wife Linda was given credit for her years of support, starting with when he came home one evening and told her he was going to quit his job and become a race car driver full time. "Linda said something like 'Go for it', and she has been to 99% of my races and has supported me ever since. The rest as they say, has become history, the history of 'Ivan Iron Man Stewart." The Thursday night event was an evening to exchange some of that history, the sharing of ideas, and experiences, and along the way the humor included in all of it. If you see Ivan somewhere, ask him to tell you a catheter story. Or maybe what he would like to do if he were ever invited to drive in the Indianapolis 500. "You know that beautiful green golf course in the middle of the track?" Ivan con-cluded, rubbing his hands to-gether. There has been much written about Ivan Stewart, the "Iron Man" and a lot of the readers of Dusty Times won't really need this history lesson because they've been there. Others, like this writer, who in-vited his wife and a couple of friends, hey, even those three per-sons could only relate to what this writer has told them about off road racing history, were enam-ored. Anyway, we spent an enjoyable evening, along with several other young hopefuls who showed up as a group. These guys were probably also somewhat new to the off road world. There was a good sized crowd in attendance and we all had a great excursion. The Automobile Museum con-tains a lot of history and we should thank those people for providing a forum for the "Iron Man". Remember this; any stories, told by anyone, can become news (emphasis on new), and can ulti-mately become history. Thank you, Ivan! Page 37

~[D]l?J~ I.As VEGAS 300 Pat Dean Finally Gets It Done By Judy Smith Photos: Trackside Photo Pat Dean had it all his way, he took the BITD Las Vegas 300 overall win, seen here in the Bunderson on his way to the checkered flag. Jean, NV: Pat Dean has been trying to win this race that hap-pens in his own back yard for sev-eral years now, and each time he's had some disaster that foiled his plans. This year everything went right, and he led all the way from start to finish, taking the overall and Class 1500 win in his Bunderson. Nothing was easy about the race this year. It's a format thar the BITD uses only here, and gen-erally all goes smoothly. Bur rhis year the weather bollixed things up. ror this event Casey Folks, CEO of the Best In The Desert, usually creates two briefly inter-secting courses, and then runs his bikes and quads on one loop and the cars and trucks on another, allowing them to come together only on the speed-controlled sec-tion in the pits. For this year it was a little different, and, while the bikes and quads were to start on the Jean Ory Lake, the cars and trucks began their loop up on the slope above it. The courses did in-tersect for about 60 miles, and for this reason, Folks planned to run the bikes early in the day, starting ar 6:30, and rhe cars later, starting at 11 :30. But then the rain came. And it was a gully-washer; a monsoon; a pelting, driving thunderstorm that inun-dated the area. It was beautiful to watch. Water flowed down the washes and gullies onto the dry lake. At about 5 a.m., the local BLM on duty began rousting out the pit people and fans who'd parked on the lake, and told them to go to higher ground. Water had al-ready reached a depth of abou r a foot, and he was no doubt right to move rhem along. Folks man-aged to get the bikes out and run-ning, by rerouting them around the edges of the dry lakes, and closing rhe other pit area that had been situated nght on another dry lake. But still, a short time into the race the BLM wanted to stop Gus Vildosola and Rob MacCachren took the Trick Truck win, they were less than three minutes ahead of their competition at the finish. the event. Folks was pushed into making a quick course change that shortened the bike race by a bit, but permitted it to go on. The BLM's argument for the action was a video of the water rushing through a wash that was originally part of the course. It was three to four fee deep and moving fast. Folks could not argue about the potential for problems. Now he faced a different prob-lem. The BLM knew there were more storms coming, and they wanted some assurance that the car/truck event would be finished early. It was supposed to run three laps on the 89 mile course. Folks briefly toyed with the idea of starting it at 10 a.m., since the shortened bike race was over early. But the difficulties of get-ting all the car/truck people there an hour and a half early seemed insurmountable. Ultimately, they started at the original time, 11 :30, but Folks declared that there wq.uld be a "grand prix finish". Tha~ meant that after the first car had completed three laps, ev-eryone else would be given the checkered flag, regardless of the number of laps actually com-pleted. In order not roger into a t lap about points, he decided that they'd all earn finisher points, even 'though they'd done fewer than three laps. It seemed like a fair compromise, and in any case, the BLM would have the final say. And those dark clouds were com-ing closer. In the 1500 cars, there were 14 starters, and John Herder had his J imco in the second start posi-tion, and went around the Trick Truck in front of him fairly early. He was having an "awesome" first lap, with no dust, and was look-ing at a really good day until his power steering started to go away. He pulled into Pit B for repairs, which cost him about 13 minutes. Meanwhile, Dean was moving on out, with no problems at all, and he took over the lead. Buddy Feld-kamp, in a Penhall, ran second, only about three minutes behind Dean at the end of the first lap. The duel continued through the second and third laps, but Dean stayed in front, for once having a trouble free day. He never even had to pass anyone who was mov-ing, and his only slow-down came on the last lap when .he had to wait for a bit while someone shoved an overturned truck out of the way so he could get by. He went on to take the class win by 12 minutes, and was also the over-all winner. The Pro Truck winner at the BITD Las Vegas 300 was Alan Levinson, he's seen here racing his Ford towards the checkered flag. The Unlimited Mini Truck win went to Larry Roese/er, he's seen here in his Ford at speed out on the course. Feldkamp had no serious trouble either, but startled him-self by doing an involuntary 360 degree spin on the "dry" lake. He also had a flat about ten miles before the finish line. He was not only second in Class 1500, but was also second overall. In third it was B.J. Richardson, in a Bunderson, who'd had two flats. One came about rather oddly, as he was passing a Trick Truck it threw up a rock that Richardson hit and broke a wheel. He was seven minutes behind second place, and was third overall. Mike Bilek was fourth in this class, re-porting that a wave had come over the hood of his Porter and taken out the radio on the first lap. He'd also done a couple of spins on the lakebed. He was a half Steve O1/iges came in second in the Trick Truck category, he's seen Ryan Staats found some water way out there on the course, Ryan Second place in the Class 8 battle went to Tom Giordano, he's seen here lettin' it all hang out on his Ford. finished second in Pro Truck in his Ford, seen here at speed. here in his Chevy heading for the finish fine.

They'd had problem, when the truck died. "I b ehind second place. D avid hard to see. He said he "went flat completed all three laps. In fifth a flat on that last lap, and took thought it was waterproof!" said Scaroni, who drove all the way in out on the last lap", but then he place it was Sam Berri, in a Mi-second by a little less than three Curt. Daughter Valerie, who was his Ford, was fourth, reporting lost a driveline and had to change rage, who'd broken a spindle on minutes. Third place went to Curt riding at the time, got to help with four flat tires. He also stalled in it. In fifth it was Todd Wyllie, who the first lap and needed a long LeDuc who drove his Ford all the the drying out process, and get it the water once, and at one point was driving his new Geiser Broth-time for repairs. He was completely way this time. He'd had a first lap going again. They were 14 minutes had sun in his eyes which made it Continued on page 40 soaked at the finish line, and bit-ter cold. He'd finished all three laps. Herder was sixth. Things had been good after the power steer-ing repair, but then some mysteri-ous electrical thing h ad hap-pened, a short of some sort, which had burned up his battery and melted the switch that could have switched him to the other battery. John, who says he's no mechanic, needed "a long time to figure it out." He says that in the near fu-ture he's going to have a two seater with a "riding mechanic." He did finish all three laps. Eric Hamann was seventh, in a Baja Shop car, and got only two laps done, slowed when his power steering pump blew. In eighth it was Steve Croll in a Ford pow-ered Porter. Among other things he'd had a first lap flat, and had spun out on the dry lake. Ninth went to Scott Schovajsa, Porter, who'd lost time with three flats and two tossed alternator belts. He'd also spent some time turn-ing a 1600 car back onto its wheels. Greg Hansen and Todd Cuffaro teamed up for this one, in their Porter, but it wasn't a good day, because they broke a serpentine belt on the first lap, and it took two and a half hours to get repaired. They were tenth. In 11th it was Chuck Hovey, who didn't get t the finish line, his Jimco fading away on the first lap. Also in that category were Shawn Croll, Kevin Colan and Mark Levrett. The first vehicle to start that morning was Gus Vildosola's Ford Trick Truck, because they'd had the fast time in the Time Tri-als that determined the start or-der of the top 20 entries. Rob MacCachren was at the wheel for the early part of the trip. They'd switch drivers at Pit B, midway through the second lap. Things went well for Rob, except for one flat tire. He wasn't first on the road all the way, since John Herder had gone by in his single seat car. Still, he was enjoying the lack of dust, even though it was very muddy and slippery. Gus took over halfway through the day, and he held onto the lead, through more rain and mud. As he neared the finish the team had the clocks out and knew he had only a few minutes on the second place ve-hicle. It worried them, therefore, when he lost a dry sump pump belt. But they got it fixed in a hurry, and crossed the finish line in class for the Trick Truck win.

They'd pulled the threads on the studs in the wreck, and the ends had now broken off. They got out a spare and pounded it on over the bent studs, but went only a short dis-tance before it came off again.

Andy Grider and Kevin Curtis, in a Honda Tatum, took the win. They had a fuel pump problem, and Curtis, who did the last two laps, ran into a flash flood. He said he "criss-crossed it" until it got too deep, and then ran along it for a while. He finished the race totally soaked and very cold. It was the new team's first win and they were the only car in the class to do all three laps. In second place it was Kevin Kelly who had no flat tires, but lost his trans-mission just before the finish line. Allen and Scott Gerber each did one lap in their Lothringer. They'd lost their power steering on Mile 27 of the first lap, and Scott, who did Lap 2, did his en-tire lap without it. They said they were "glad we only had to go two." They liked it that there was no dust. Kevin Derby, who was fourth in his Chaparral, said he got the coil wet on the first lap and it took him four hours to get around. The second lap was driven by Travis Brozowski. It was his first off road race. Usually he races a stock car, and, says Travis, "We don't race in the rain!" Fifth place went to Alejandro and Eduardo Jimenez and David Bost, who all drove their Metal Worx chassis. They lost third and fourth gears at Mile 68 of Lap 1, and did the rest of their two laps without them. Terry Stevens, in a Tatum, broke two tie rods and a spindle and stopped three times for re-pairs. He ran up against the flash flood also, and came to the finish line totally covered in a fine layer of mud. Even his face. In Class 8000, the win went to Mark Beeler in a Ford. It was his third win in a row. He said the truck got wet and quit four times, he "hydraulicked" it once, and ran up against that flash flood. It took him six hours and 10 min-utes to do the three laps. In sec-ond place it was Tom Giordano, in a Chevy, who had a couple of flats and said it was a "fun day." He was 14 minutes out of first. Sheldon Paul was third in his Ford, reporting no flats, but he said he "hydraulicked" his motor and it took an hour to get it go-ing again. Then, on Lap 2, the air cleaner bolt fell into the carbure-tor and cost him another 20 min-utes. David Bryan was fourth in his Ford. He lost a fan blade, so his water pump was out of bal-ance and it quit working. Repairs cost a bunch of time. Scott Barnett was fifth, with only one lap done, in his Ford. He'd had to deal with a wet distributor. Dusty Times 7r

They'd been in a hail storm along the way. There was one brave Stock VW sedan running this race, with Robert Henderson at the wheel. They had time to complete only one lap, and it took them three hours and 44 minutes. Along the way they adjusted the front end, and changed passengers from Dick Dahn, one of racing's old timers, to Robert Henderson, Jr., at 18, one of the sport's young-sters.

0RMHOF NEWS Bob Ham1..200& Inductee Into the Off KOad Motorsports Hall of Fame Bob Ham, who said he was bitten by "offroaditis" when he was attending San Diego State in the mid-60s, has been a one-man army working to preserve our rights to use the desert and other open lands. Bob's first off-road experience was a trip to Baja with some friends, but it didn't take him long to get equipped for Glamis and Pismo. He started with a new '69 Bronco, joined a jeep club in Pasadena, and eventually be-came a part of a pit support group. In about 1974 he started going to the NORRA races down in Baja, and he was doing some pre-running with a racer friend. At about the same time the environmentalists discovered the desert and off roading. Bob tells us that they (the environmental-ists) were already closing sand dune areas like Pt. Mugu, Ma-rina Beach and Morro Bay and had set their sights on Pismo. He was by now the proud owner of a "sandrail" that he'd built and equipped. with a 36 hp motor, so he had first hand knowledge of the dunes and what would be missing if they were all closed down. So Bob became involved with some other dunebuggy people, and they formed the California Off Road Vehicle As-soc ia tio n (CORVA). And CORVA teamed up with a few clubs from the Bay area and Sacramento and about 12 Southern California buggy and jeep clubs and started to do battle with the "enviros", BLM, State Parks, Forest Service and the Legislature. For a brief while Bob worked Baja Rentals Includes Iridium 9505a Only $69.99 per week Free travel charger, cigarette lighter adapter, Free leather case, voice mail and extra battery Call and reserve yours today!!!

And then, in 1974 he moved to Sacramento to work for the Reagan Administration in the last year of his governorship. Bob ran the fuel allocation pro-gram during the embargo and was able to ensure that there was always plenty of gas avail-able at the old Glamis store, at Barstow for the Fireworks Race at Pismo and wherever off-roaders were likely to need fuel. Bob stayed oil in Sacramento and in 1978 helped get a Dis-trict 37 motorcycle racer named Bob Hayes elected to the state legislature. In 1979 he worked for the state Assembly as a policy consultant on energy, land use and transportation. After a few years of doing that, the lobbyist for the motorcycle industry retired and Bob was hired to replace him. At that point he put together an orga-nization called the Off Road Vehicle Legislative Coalition which was comprised of CORVA, California 4 Wheel Drive Association, AMA Na-tional and Districts 36 and 37, the California/Nevada Snow-mobile Association and a few others. Then, for the next 14 years he was the spokesman for motorcycles and ORV enthusi-asts in the state legislature. One year in the mid-80s, Bob got the help of Sal Fish (SCORE's president) to borrow a jeep Cherokee, and he drove it in a Baja 1000 in the Safari class (which unfortunately no longer exists). He took a "fairly liberal" Assemblyman, who was about to be named Chair of the Trans-portation Committee as his co-driver. After a weekend of par-ticipating in a Baja 1000 he be-came a real supporter of our cause. Bob says the "enviros" A could never understand how this guy, who normally voted their way, would always be there for the offroaders when we needed a vote. Bob continued to lobby for Off Road causes until the mid '94s, when the Republicans took control of the State Assembly and he went back to work for the Assembly again. After the Democrats took over control once again, he left and decided to work in El Centro. This kept him close enough to his house in San Felipe, on the east edge of Baja, to satisfy his need for what he calls a "fish taco fix." In March of 2002 Bob went to work for the County of Im-perial. He says he still gets "to fight for the rights of off roading, since that is a BIG deal in our county". He is also still on the Board of Directors of the California League of Off Road Voters, which is the successor organization to the Off Road Vehicle Legislative Coalition. He's also active in a handful of other organizations that work for our right to use the land.

,,,--By Lisa Kennedy Race cars and trucks were lined up and waiting to start the race with engines revving and rumbling on September 16th for MORE's Rumble at Ridgecrest. Twelve FAIR racing teams were there to battle it out for the_ top of the podium in their respective classes and a chance for the overall win. Class 5 driver, Chris Bowman, was able to finish in second place, only a little over two minutes out of first place. This was a huge turn around for his team after the pre-vious three races resulted in DNF's due to problems with their steering components failing. Chris was in the driver's seat for the first three laps with Johnny Brockway along to ride for the entire race. They were doing well until in the third lap a limit strap came loose and wrapped around the axle and c.v. boot. Mike Long and Tom Moxley running their remote pit were able to make the necessary repairs and had them back in the race in about 30 min-utes. Jerry Longo joined Johnny Brockway in the car and drove the next three laps uneventfully. Jerry then turned the car over to Chuck Sacks to drive for the finai rwo iaps. This was Chuck's first time to drive Chris' car, but he set the fastest lap time for Class 5 at 38 minutes and 20 seconds, proving that he is defi-nitely an asset to the team. Curt Geer in Class 1/2-1600 lead the pack for most of the race and set the fastest lap time of 39 minutes and 19 seconds in the first lap. An unfortunate tire change on the seventh lap left him with a flat tire in the last lap that cost him the victory by eight minutes. Curt came away with a third place finish driv-ing in his new Lothringer 1600 car. Michael Kanuch ended the race in sixth place. Class 5-1600 had two FAIR rac-ing teams off the line. Ken and John Tolbert started the race in their 578 "Orange Crush" then handed the car over to Billy Worthing and Brandy to finish out the race. They all had a great day and really en-joyed themselves in the race and helping out at the FAIR pits. They were so glad to have the car back out in the action after the night race ended for them with a scary roll-over. They would like to thank John, Bradley, Billy and Brandy for mak-ing the race day go well, JFK Race Cars, and FAIR pit support. KST Racing finished the race in second place, followed by Aaron Aspel who placed sixth. Once again Class 9 had the larg-est turnout of FAIR racers. Harry Dunne, with his sons as part of the team, had a great day. Christopher drove during the first three laps with his brother, Bill, in the pas-senger seat. During the second lap a coil wire broke, which they were able to get repaired on the course. Harry took over to drive the last three laps with Jody Duisen along for the ride. Harry got a bit disori-ented on the second time around Dusty Times (fifth lap), but was able to get back on course and bring the car in for a second place finish. Cody Rash, driving 990, along with Bill Truman, kept a consistent pace during his three laps behind the wheel. He then handed the car over to Beau Rash and Cory Rash. They suffered a broken spindle on Lap 5, but were able to get it re-paired and brought the car in to finish in fifth place,. Thanks goes out to FAIR, DRT, Inc., and DSO Eye Wear for their support. Rob MacDonald in the "Rocket" 976 drove the first three laps of the race with no problems and handed the car over to Frank Wagner in first place. Frank drove the next rwo and one halflaps, con-tinuing to hold the lead, only to break a ball joint ten miles from the finish ending their race and giv-ing them ninth place. Car 973 was driven by Justin Rash for the first three laps. Justin set the fastest lap time in the class with 45 minutes and 26 seconds. He then turned the car over to Ron Rash, who broke an axle on the fourth lap. Unfortunately this cost them the race and they ended the day in 13th place. Marcus Gonzales continued to have problems with his 977. Tommy Kirkmeyer was to drive the first three laps and then hand the car over to Marcus, but this was not to be. A roll-over occurred in the first lap, but they were able to get the car back over and back into the race. During the second lap a ball joint broke ending the race early for this team. We wish them much better luck in their upcoming races. Driving in Class 13, Greg Crew in his Lucas Oil car was able to fin-ish the race in third piace. They ran a great race all day and suffered only one flat on the last lap. They were able to make it to FAIR Pit B where their tire was changed in un-der one minute, and then they were back out in the action. They wish to thank Lucas Oil Saddle Sore Saloon, Toy Hauler Mag, and FAIR pit support. In Class 1450, Eric Fiorino fin-ished the race in third place. FAIR racers also ventured out to several unsupported races over the next few weekends as well. On September 22nd and 23rd, Greg Crew participated in Rounds 5 & 6 of the CORR short course race in Chula Vista. During Saturday's race Greg forgot to put tear-offs in his visor, and this came back to haunt him during the race as he was pelted in the face with mud from the other competitors. He did manage to finish 12th out of 17 that day. On Sunday he fared bet-ter, finishing in eighth place, which puts him in 10th for the series to date. September 30th turned out to be a busy day, with the MDT Out-law 250 in Lucerne Valley and the So u thcoast SNORE 250 at Stateline. At the Outlaw 250, Art Savedra earned a top spot on the podium in Class 5-1600, finishing first and also setting fastest lap time of one hour, 13 minutes and seven seconds. Racing in Class 1, Kevin and Shelby Reid made their debut in their new car, 168. Kevin started the race with Mike Nixon along for the ride. They started having trans-mission problems at MM 18, which then led them to land on a large rock just past MM24 when Kevin was trying to hold the car in gear. After being pulled off the rock they were back out onto the course, but half way through the second lap the transm1ss10n became worse and they were having problems with the front shocks as well, and Kevin de-cided to call it day. They wish to thank everyone who came out to help with the race. Racing at Stateline, Curt Geer finished 14th in Class 1/2-1600 after having numerous flat tires. Driving in Class 9, Rob MacDonald started the race in 976 and suffered a broken brake line in the first lap. He then handed the car over to Frank Wagner who lost a tire in the second lap, and having no tools to repair the problem, had to walk four miles back to the pit to retrieve help. They ended the race in seventh. Marcus Gonzales in 977 had a broken axle ten miles into the race and ended with 10th place. The MORE DAMZL Powder Puff Race on October 14, 2006 was quite an event! Eighty-four racing teams were there to raise money for breast cancer research. FAIR was there to support not only their own members, but all of the racers who turned out to Race for the Cure. The idea for this race was initi-ated by Shelby Tolbert, and when he proposed the idea to Jim at MORE, he simply replied "Giddar Done". With this, the women's event was born. Shelby formed an interest list and teamed up with Jen-nifer Clemison and DAMZL to get the word out. They did a great job of spreading the word and the Pow-der Puff Race evolved into the larg-est all female off road event ever, and the race brought in over $50,000 in donations for breast cancer research. As FAIR was supporting all the racers in this event, we would just like to recognize those ladies who came in at the top of their class. in Class 1, Shirley Jergensen in 156 came in at the top of the podium, followed by Jennifer Clemison in second, Erma Myers in third, Jen-nifer Kawell in fourth, and Lori Robinson in fifth. Class 13 winner was Kim Powell, in 1369. Terra Ja-cobus came in behind her in sec-ond, Terry Johnson took third, Carol Wilson came in fourth, and Julie Ellis was fifth. Class 1450 had only two entrants. Jennifer Layton took first in this class, followed by Chris Hepler. Class 1400 winner was Danyelle Thayer, Melissa Thornton came in second, Demoree Deocales finished third, and Lauren Brogger took fourth. In Class 5, Cheri Nutter driving 529 finished first, followed by Melissa Davis in second, Carolyn Hines in third, Irene Owens in fourth, and Michelle Bruckman in fifth. Class 5-1600 winner was Nicole Garavi-to, Terrie Tavis finished second, Shelby Tolbert came in third, Windy Ehrhardt took fourth, and Kristen Flaherty ended in fifth. In Class 1600, Lauren Meritt took the top spot on the podium, followed by Becci Craig in second, Michelle Johnson in third, Shelby Reid in fo urth, and Julie Meehan in fifth. The Class 9 winner was Sigal Greenberg in 901, followed by Rhonda Gonzales in 977, third went to Shauna Forrest in 914, Kaily Goin in 915 finished fourth, and in fifth place was Connie Dovery in 916. Class 10 first place finisher was Marylou Garavito, fol-lowed by Robyn McMullin in sec-ond, Cheri Davenport in third, Debbie Sacks in fourth, and Denise Bise in fifth. Class 7 A was led by Teresa Quiroz, Aletha Keegal came in second, Susan Stokes finished third, Tabitha Rose was fourth, and Wendi Evans took fifth.

This will be the first off-road show in California to be promoted by a non-profit trade association. All proceeds will be used by ORBA to fur-ther its efforts to protect and promote th_e motorized off-road recreation industry. An entire hall at the conven-tion center will be reserved for dealers and after-market suppli-ers of Yamaha Rhino products. The Yamaha Rhino is the hottest off-road product to hit the mar-ket in decades. After-market com-panies are springing up all over the country. Yamaha's Mike Schmitt stated: "We are excited about the fact that an entire building will highlight our super-_ successful Rhino. This has not been done before, that [ know 0£ We are happy to support ORBA on this project" The second title sponsor for the show will be CORR (Cham-pionship Off Road Racing). Ve-hicles from the various classes that race at CORR events are planned to be on display along with famous off-road racers who will b e signing autographs. "Championship Off Road Racing will bring an ele-ment to the ORBA off-road show that will certainly attract the pub-lic. CORR is excited to be a part of this inaugural show as many ORBA members test their prod-ucts through the rigors of our racing. We hope to educate the public about our exciting race series and draw them to our events programmed for the 2007 season" says Ken Zapp from CORR. Other Sponsors for the show include Cycle Parts West, Pro Comp Suspension, Alba Action Sports, and on Road ·w are-house. According to Roy Den-ner, ORBA's President & CEO: "As the off-road industry's only dedicated trade association it is logical that we provide our mem-bers an opportunity to promote their products while helping ORBA's cause. And the Barona Convention Center is the perfect place to do it." Information about the show will be posted on ORBA's Web site at as it develops.

Shannon Rentsch, with dad Ian co-driving took the overall win at the Beaurepairs Goondiwindi 400 in the good looking Nissan powered Chenowth. Goondiwindi, a small town in southwest Queensland, was the host of the last round of the Aus-tralian Off Road Championship. This race was to be the decider for the championship, as the points were close for four racers and they all needed to do well, no more than the current cham-pion Shannon Rentsch, his main rivals were Buddy Crowe, Hayden Bentley and Eric Phillips.
