Trail Notes ... SCORE LAs VEGAS TERRmLE'S CUP II -Las Vegas Events and SCORE International announced that the SCORE Las Vegas Terrible' s Cup II will return to the dirt track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on July 27-29, 2006. The event will again feature the SCORE Trophy Trucks, Class 1, Class ½-1600, Class 10, SCORE Lite and the Mini Truck Class 7 /7S/7SX group. Seating capacity for the first event was 8,000, seating will approach 12,000 for the 2006 event. "From a sponsor perspective, this event was spectacular for us, and from a racer's side, the competition was fierce and exciting, and, as a race team, it just didn't turn out as well as we would have liked" said Ed Herbst, President of Herbst Gaming. The three day event will include some ancillary events on Thursday, July 27, such as the SCORE Las Vegas Pit Stop, a vehicle display, the Terrible's Pit Crew Challenge for Trophy Trucks and a concert, under the canopy of the Freemont Street Experience. Next years short course event will be held under the lights for both evenings with the green flag waving at 7pm. Once again, Reserved and General Admission will be offered. Special ticket packages, which will include pit passes, will be announced in the near future. HAL FLAG - We were saddened to hear of the passing of Cindy onroe, founder of High Desert Photography. Cindy started her off ad photography career in 1992, covering events for VORRA and Cindy supplied photos of the VORRA events to Dusty Times for many years. She went to the Baja 1000 a few times with the BFGoodrich crew and always had a good time south of the border. Cindy enjoyed all facets of off road racing, shooting cars, trucks and motorcycles whenever she could. Many will remember Cindy for her photographic efforts at the Best In The Desert, Vegas To Reno races when Cindy and her husband John would run a check point. Cindy will be missed by all who were privileged to know her and she will alw.ays be in the hearts of the off road racing community. S/DAKAR - Team Vanguard U.SA. Update: You can understand y an amateur racer might want to do the Dakar once for the perience. Except, if the experience is being lost in the desert for two days, with little food and a close encounter with the local bandits. No doubt it's Team Vanguard Amateur Driver, Ronn Bailey, who did his first Dakar in 2005, he believes he has a much better chance of finishing with fellow off road veteran Philppe Gache. Or maybe the 56 year-old Bailey sees running a team as both an exciting experience as well as a good marketing opportunity for Vanguard Integrity Professionals, his computer security company. In what is believed to be the first non-automotive sponsored American/French race team, Bailey, Gache and motorcyclist Kevin Heath will be among the 508 teams (trucks, cars and motorbikes) tackling the world's longest most grueling race, 9,043 km of sand, mountains and probably a few bandits as well. All that in just 15 days, beginning in Lisbon, December 31. The 28th Dakar Rally, which covers a different course each year, will start for the first time in Lisbon, cross through Morocco, Mauritania, Mali, and Guinea and end as usual in Dakar, in Senegal. This year there are fast and stony tracks, sand crossings and a lot of navigation to find the numerous first-time passes throughout the route which will all make this more of an extreme event. More than 1400 racers will compete with cars, bikes, ATVs and trucks subjected to perils including sandstorms, bandits and landmines. Last year, only half the entries finished the race. Bailey, 56, an amateur driver, has been in only two off-road races. Although he finished the 2005 Dakar race, he was disqualified after being lost in a sandstorm without gas or food for two days and narrowly escaping an encounter with armed bandits in Mauritania. Off-Road veteran, Philippe Gache has been racing for more than 20 years and has been in dozens of off road races including the past three Dakar rallies, as well as the Tunisia, Turkish and Morocco rallies. Motorcyclist Kevin Heath, from San Diego, South African born, has also participated in the 2005 Dakar as well as the Baja 500 and 3 triathlons. He'll be driving a KTM 660 rally bike. Philippe will be driving his SMG buggy, a French-made two-wheel drive car with a Chevy V8. Bailey believes his car offers a serious technological edge. He has made a significant investment rebuilding his JIMCO car to FIA specs and refitted with a Chevy LS 1. Stay tuned for more Paris/ Dakar.

The complete story on the SCORE Baja 500 starts on page 8 of this issue. Lots of text by Judy Smith and lots of photos by Trackside Photo. HEARD IN PASSING - In a restaurant in Ensenada the night before the 1000 we heard Charles Keller, a Honda pit/ chase crew person recite the following: I'm proud to be a Honda man, and wear the wing upon my chest, and travel this wild land of ours pitting for the very best, We'll line them up, and shine them up, we do quick dumps all 'round, we can even show you what to do if your Honda does fall down. But, alas, I'm just one Honda man and someday I'll be dead, that's why I pass this creed to you, to keep others riding red. Seems to us they were the first bike across the line. A; CIDENT AT BTID HENDERSON RACE - Lots of stories floating around about an accident at the BITD Henderson race. We're here o set the story s~aight. Peter Clauss was severely injured when, about midway througn the race, his car, running in the Sportsman Class became stuck in the silt. Peter, and his 19 year old son, Daniel, got out of the car, and then Peter stood next to it, with his helmet on, talking on the radio to his crew, asking them to get someone out there to help move them from what he could see was a dangerous spot. Sadly, as he did that, one car went by, and the next vehicle behind it Steve Staats' Protruck, couldn't see the stopped car in the silt until it was too late. Staats hit the left rear tire of the bu~l?V with his rieht front tire. That sent Staats into a rollover, off to the left of the buggy. The jolt to the buggy flipped Clauss up and over and he landed in front of his own buggy. Both of his legs and his right arm were broken. He was airlifted to University Medical Center in Las Vegas. Clauss wants to thank his son Daniel, and Steve's son for being "Troopers" and helping him while they were waiting for evacuation.

The monument was in celebration of from the race. While the contingency donors are BFGoodrich's 30th anniversary with With more entries than they'd had still tending to stay away from contin-the Baja 1000. BFGoodrich was also since 1977, SCORE had a monster on gency day in Ensenada, thanks to a observing the anniversary, with special their hands. The Trophy Truck had 30 scare at the 2004 Baja 500, it was still t-shirts for all their crew, a cadre of entries, and there were 28 of the 1600s, a busy place. There were dis plays, but BFG big wigs, and plans for a party to celebrate the hoped-for 20th consecu-tive overall victory on BFG tires at the 1000. As it turned out, it was in-deed a very celebratory event after the race, because Roeseler and Herbst were on BFG tires. This year's course was an Ensenada to Ensenada loop, measuring 708 miles and including nearly all of the most difficult sections of course ever used in Baja. They started in the wash in Ensenada, but that's become civilized, with grandstands on both sides, and a couple of safe, but entertaining jumps to keep the spectators interested. Then they squirreled through the outskirts of the city, including one pesky silt hill only four miles from the start, which slowed down many an over-ea-ger racer. Added to that there was a brush fire right there, and the racers hustled down the trail with flames, big flames, on both sides of them. After escaping Ensenada, they wound gradu-ally eastward and upward to Ojos Ne-gros, then across the highway to Tres Hermanos where they turned left and wound through the brush to Alamo. They crossed the highway again, used a lot of the old trail, and at Nuevo Junc-tion headed toward the Summit. The rocky pass was as difficult as ever go-ing up and badly eroded on the down-hill side. The best thing about having to do the Summit was that it meant they avoided the Goat Trail near Valle de Trinidad. Once down on the east-,......---,.......,.--------,---,.----,---...,-~---===--,--..--......-, Caleb Gaddis and Charlie Watters made it look easy, they took the Class 1600 honors with more than 50 minutes on their competition. The big Class 3 win went to Don and Ken Moss, they drove their Ford to victory in just less than 25 hours. em side of the mountains, they first traveled north, then south in a variety of deep sand washes, and hit Highway 3 at Borrego where they crossed and picked up the old trails going south then into, and through, San Felipe. Be-low San Felipe they traversed both Matomi Wash and Chanate Wash, and the narrow trail through the boulders ofMatomi was a big concern. Now heading northward, they paralleled the edge ofDiablo Dry Lake, ran up Matias Pass, crossed the highway and then par-alleled it in the continuation of Matias Wash. From there they recrossed the highway and climbed up to Mike's Sky Ranch on his old road, headed west, and down almost to San Telmo, then turned eastward and upward again, through El Coyota, and past Simpson's and into Valle de Trinidad. Then they headed west again, through Llano Colo-rado, up the highway a bit and then out to the beach. A northward section there took them all the way to Santo Tomas, where they got back on pave-ment for a while, and then they turned in at Uruapan, through another treach-erous section, and at Tres Hermanos met up with the outgoing course, which they used for the route to the finish line. There were Santa Ana winds blow-ing that weekend, so the weather was dry and fog didn't become an issue any-where. Dust was heavy, but it was windy inland, and it got cold during the night. Racers did all the expected things. They cooked their motors in the washes, or stuck their cars in the soft sand. They ran off the turns near Santo Tomas, got lost on the way in after Ojos, hit big boulders in Matomi, fell into wash outs after Uruapan, and rattled their back teeth on the bumps down near San Felipe. And for the most part, they really liked this course. It had all the elements that make up a good Baja course and it was not one on which speed alone would win. The drivers would have to be plenty tal-ented and smart to get to the finish line at all. The average speed of the Herbst/Roeseler Truggy was 46.92 miles per hour. There was a huge supply of talent and smarts in the Trophy Truck class, and Brian Collins had the early lead Alan Pfleuger flew his Trophy Truck to a decent second place finish at Mark McMillin and Brian Ewalt took the silver medal in the Class 1 Max Hanberg, Bernie Carr and Charles De Yemer drove their the 1000, he's seen here heading down course. contest, seen here in the good looking Jimco-Chevy.

Darren Hardesty and Mark Randazzo ran second in their VW AlumiCraft. In third it was Steve and Andrew Myers in their Jimco Toyota, and John Cooley ran fourth in another VW AlumiCraft. Ron Dalke and Mark Brownell had their Toyota Tatum in fifth place, and were only 20 minutes behind the lead car. Only two cars had dropped out at this point. But five more disappeared before the end of Chanate Wash, and at San Telmok there were only seven running. Yee still had the lead, and he'd had alternator problems, so was carrying a spare with him. Cooley and his co-driv-ers, Chris Westwood and Dave Richardson, were now second, eight minutes back, and Hardesty and Randazzo were third, another 2 7 min-utes behind. Bill and Dave Gasper had their Porter in fourth place. Dave hadn't ever driven it before this, but was proving to be adaptable. They'd had "all.kinds of problems" including a rag in the intake, which they'd discov-ered at the first road crossing. They'd also had some flats, a brake fluid leak, had lost their jack and had been stuck a couple of times. In fifth place it was Travis and Ron Brookshire and Joel Whitted. Ron, who'd started, had lost his brakes off the Summit - scary. Whitted did the San Felipe loop and got hit in the neck by a thrown rock, which also took out his stub can. Yee kept moving along at a steady pace, but somehow he'd developed a hole in his floor pan just in front of his pedals. "Man was it cold!" He had no other problems and took the win with 40 minutes to spare. In second it was Cooley, Westwood and Richardson. Richardson had been chasing Yee hard near the end, and was "that close to gettin' him!" but in the dust hit a hole, nearly endoed, and bent an A-arm. They had no other serious problems. In third it was the Gaspers, about two hours behind them. The Brookshires and Whitted were fourth, Travis Brookshire reporting that he "kinda fell asleep" down near Erendira. He got sideways, went over about four times, and landed on his wheels going backwards. He downshifted and went on. Hardesty and Randazzo were fifth, and Eli Yee and Perry McNeil, in a Jimco with a radically decambered front end, were sixth. They'd welded on the arms, but it didn't hold, so they'd driven about 100 miles with the front wheels splayed out. In seventh it was Dalke and Brownell who reported they'd lost a caliper, changed a throw-out bearing and been stuck in a hole. They used up nearly 24 hours in get-ting to the finish line, and were the last Class 10 team to finish. The Protrucks started next, and it was a crucial race for them because it Dusty Times

would determine the Protruck champi-onship (which is separate from the SCORE class championship). Four trucks were in a virtual tie, and which-ever finished best would win the big Protruck purse. There were 12 of them entered. All of them cruised past Alamo, and on down the road to Borrego. At that point the lead belonged to Darren York, Joe Custer and Gene Haas, in their Chevy. Jimmy Nuckles ran sec-ond in his Ford, a minute behind them, and Alan Hogan, another Ford, was four minutes back in third, followed by Gus Vildosola, Jr., in his Toyota. All but one were still running. When they arrived at San Telmo, 475 miles along the road, the lead be-longed to Vildosola, and he had about seven minutes on second place. He'd already had to change a driveshaft. Sec-ond was Rick Johnson and Dane Cardone in their Toyota, and they'd been tipped up on their side early in the day, but Ryan Herzog had put them back on their wheels. Craig Smith and Jason Jernigan ran third in their Ford, competing in the 1000 for their first time. Jimmy Nuckles was back in his Ford, after his co-driver, Jeff Dickerson did the San Felipe loop. Nuckles had been having a lot of flat tires, and finally decided that "this is a race of smarts -not speed." He slowed down a bit and had no more flat tires. In fifth it was Hogan. Doug Siewert and John Kilroy had a good run, they took the Class 7 win with ease, their competition three hours behind them. The big Class B win went to Keith Fontana and Ron Lammer, they had almost an hour in hand at the finish line. Nuckles went into the lead by the time he got to Llano Colorado, Mile 570, and stayed there to the end. He and Dickerson took the win and the Protruck points. In second it was Johnson and Cardone, less than three minutes behind them. They'd had two flats at once, and Herzog had given them a spare. They'd also been stuck once, but hadn't had any mechanical troubles. Vildosola fell into a ditch late in the day, and had to be pulled out, but he held on to his third place finish, about 35 minutes behind sec-ond place. Smith and Jernigan limped in the final 20 miles, their motor go-ing sour. It quit right after crossing the finish line. They said their first Baja 100 had been "one hell of an ex-perience!" In fifth it was Gary Magness, who didn't stop to talk, and in sixth Herzog and his co-driver, Steve Poole. They said they'd had some flats, been stuck and had stopped to help a couple people. York, Custer and Haas were also stuck a few times, went off a cliff and parked in a big ravine. Hogan had been following Robby Gordon as they headed into Uruapan, and Gordon missed a tum, then backed up, and Hogan turned to miss him and ran into a block wall. He "broke everything in the front of the truck -it sucks", and then he went on to say, "Great course." He finished eighth, the last Protruck to make it in. Class 8 had six entries, but Lowell Arnold's tidy ford was out early. At Alamo the lead belonged to David Sykes in Dave Westhem' s old Chevy and he had about six minutes on Kurtis Kupiec and Ramsey El Wardani in their Chevy. Third was Keith Fontana and Ron Lammer in a Chevy, driving in their first SCORE event. When they got to the end of Chanate Wash the lead belonged to Fontana, who'd already broken a leaf spring and replaced it. Todd Wyllie ran second in his Chevy after replac-ing a transmission before Ojos. The replacement trans had a cracked hous-ing, and he was stopping to add trans fluid every 20 miles or so. In third it was now Sykes, who'd been stuck four times and had blown his steering box at the top of Mato mi Wash. That had cost him about six hours. Even further back were Kupiec and Wardani, already over 19 hours into the race. Fontana and Lammer blew a front driveshaft, and did the remainder of the race in two wheel drive. They also had a caliper problem, but at Llano Colorado were still in the lead, with about 20 minutes on Wyllie. Sykes and his co-drivers, Steve Wolcott, Marc Stein and Randy Salmont, ran third, another two hours back. They'd been down to four trucks since before Borrego, and there were still four trucks, but Kupiec and El Wardani were way late. Fontana and Lammer took the win, reporting a total of about three hours down time. They said they "Drove the s-t out of this the last 70 miles!" They finished 52 minutes in front of Wyllie and his co-driver, Gary Stoltz, who lost their water after Ojos on the way in. They said it had been "quite the ad-venture!" In third it was Sykes, Wolcott, Stein and Salmont, about an hour and a half further back. And al-though Kupiec and El Wardani got to the finish line, it didn't count, because they were six minutes over the time limit. Nineteen SCORE Lite cars were next to take off, and all but one made it through Alamo. They lost only two on the way to Borrego, and at that point the lead was in the hands of Jake Batulis and Jeff Lothringer, in their Five started in Class 9, only two made it all the way and the winner was Eric Fisher and Hector Sarabia, just over 24 hours for their run.

In fifth it was Chuck Sacks in a Chenowth. Coming through the washes, Potter and his co-driver, Dan Worley, moved into the lead. They held it through San Telmo, where they had 14 minutes on second place. That was Watson, whose co-drivers, Arturo Honold and Tim Noe and David Scaroni had been tak-ing turns at the wheel. Barulis and Lothringer ran third, another 40 min-utes back, and Tito and Noe Tapia and Ramon Castro were fourth, 50 min-utes later. In fifth place it was Drew Belk and Greg Foster, who put Mike •·••••·••s1zu Belk (Drew's son) into the Porter, for the last section. Potter and Worley were having a sticky throttle problem. They also got stuck in a "huge booby trap" for about 25 minutes, and then, as they neared the finish they were stuck for a while behind Vildosola, Jr., in his stuck Protruck. Still, they took the win, say-ing it had been "a long day, but fun." They were a half hour in front of Watson, Honold, Noe and Scaroni. Noe had been stuck on a rock for an hour, until Robby Gordon and his pas-senger pushed him off. They'd also had to weld on their front end, but still got back in time for a nice second place.

Fifth was the Belk and Foster team, who'd started the day by rolling over and losing a half hour. Foster also had a tie rod come loose and about 30 miles before the finish they broke a lower arm and had to have the crew bring parts out for repairs.

MacCachren and his crew alternately worked on he car and drove it, and then worked on it some more, drove it a bit further, and kept this up all the way to the finish. Gus Vildosola, Rob's sponsor and partner in the #4 Trophy Truck, had given up on the Trophy Truck, saying that "win-ning the championship for Rob was more important." Instead, they were following the buggy in with the truck, which had also had a bad day, already having a transmission transplant, and then having a hole poked in the pan under the trans. MacCachren and Free-man kept going through the check-points just ahead of closing time, but when they reached the finish line they were too late -and they timed out.

In sev-enth it was Ruben and Daniel Gutierrez and Jason Lakin, in a Jimco. They got stuck in the silt, lot a bolt off a tie rod end, and stuck in a traffic jam. Gutierrez also stopped for a few mo-ments not far from the finish to check on the condition of a biker who'd run into a fence post. Greg Crew finished eighth in his Porter, and David Callaway, John Holmes and Scott Mapes, in a Dunrite, lost four hours when they ran out of gas, and ultimately finished ninth. They were the final fin-ishers in this class. The 1/2-1600 class was one of the big ones, with 28 starters. Twenty-six of them got through Alamo, and 21 arrived at Borrego. At that point the lead belonged to Caleb Gaddis in his Curry. He had seven minutes on Bryan Freeman in his Fraley. In third it was the team of Mike Sandoval, Mike Wil-liams and Blaise Jackson in their Meco. Fourth belonged to Max Handberg, in a Lothringer, fifth was Hiram Duran in a Neth, and Abel and Arturo Valezco and Stevie Cruz were sixth in their Por-ter. At San Tel mo Gaddis' co-driver, Vic Bruckmann led, although Gaddis had had a flat near Chanate Wash, and had lost about 10 minutes. David Caspino ran second in his Lothringer, Hand berg's co-driver, Bernie Carr was third, and Freeman was fourth, while Duran was fifth, and had changed an air filter. Thirteen cars were still run-ning. Lorenzo Rodriguez had rolled and torn off a shock mount. He later had a long, long pit stop at Borrego, and then didn't go on. Jose Cruz broke an axle in Matomi Wash and became one of the obstacles in an already dif-ficult area. Gaddis got back in to drive from Ojos to the finish, and he and Bruckmann got the win, finishing 48 minutes ahead of the next car. Max Handberg, Bernie Carr and Don Johnson finished second, reporting that "absolutely nothing went wrong." They were 48 minutes behind the lead car. In third it was Duran, who didn't stop to talk, and in fourth, L.J. Kennedy, Wayne Lacher and Shane Reed in a Porter. They smashed some push rods and tubes and lost over an hour early on, then had to keep add-ing oil. They had a flat, the top of their tail pipe came off and had to be replaced, and they broke a throttle cable nine miles before the end, and finished on a left front flat. Fifth place went to Arturo and Abel Velazco and Stevie Cruz in a Porter. They had a flat, ran out of gas, and lost their lights when the ballast box fell off. They drove for an hour, from Borrego to San Felipe in full dark. They were about a half hour behind fourth place. In sixth it was Daniel McMillin and Chris Cortez in a Jimco. They lost a throttle cable early in the day, and had To sign up, or get more information, free, no obligation, contact: just one flat tire. Brian Burgess, Sammy Ehrenberg and Dan Folts lost their oil early, then broke all four tranny mounts and needed some serious weld-ing, but finished seventh. In eighth it was Edgar and Jesus Alvarez, who are not related, just friends. They had prob-lems with a broken brake caliper. In ninth it was Ken Tapert and Gary Stairs, who'd been stuck on a boulder and stuck in silt. Tenth place went to Mike Sandoval, Blaise Jackson and Mike Williams who'd been so down on horsepower they'd had to be towed up at least one hill. Alberto Medina was 11th, and David Caspino was 12th and the last 1600 car to finish within the time limit. At the finish line Gaddis waited to hear what was happening with Free-man, and his co-driver, Rob MacCach-ren. They'd been leading the overall season points going into the race, and had only to finish to hang on to their lead. But they were having serious en-Class 5 was next off the line.

George Seeley led at Borrego with 10 minutes on Chris Bowman and Jerry Longo. Luivan Voelker ran third another half hour back. At Chanate Bowman had gone into the lead as Seeley dealt with a problem he couldn't identify. He thought he'd run out of gas, and at first thought the pit hadn't completely filled the tank. But come to find out, his fuel cell was coming apart, and be-cause he couldn't see the leak, he didn't realize it. He got some gas and went on, only to run out again, at which time he gave up the ghost. Meanwhile, Bowman was in front and Voelker was second. They ran that way to the finish.

Raul Flores was second a half hour later in his Ford, and Daniel Chamlee, another Ford, ran third. Siewert and his co-drivers, John Kilroy and Aaron Dodson, all of whom both rode and drove, decided to "just cruise" after their lengthy re-pair and it seemed to be a good plan. They led through Chanate Wash, and were still leading when they got to San Telmo. They had over three hours on second place at that point. And second place belonged to Chamlee, who was a little over an hour ahead of Craig Turner in his Ford. By n_ow they'd lost Kreg Donahoe's Toyota, and Jamie Medina's Ford and only five racers were still moving.

They'd been in front, but had a bro-ken throttle spring and had to repair it with a spring from the muffler. Fifth was held by Sebastien Bourdais, Wally Fisk, and Glen Plake. They'd had to pinch off a rear brake line. Bourdais said, "It was a no-brainer -it just took 40 'minutes to figure it out." After that they had only front brakes of course, and tended to get stuck.

They'd had throttle problems and were added , oil every 40 miles. Boudais, Fisk and Plake ran fifth. Sutton, Kelsey, Millen and McCoy held their lead and took i:he win.

The Jourdains, who won last year, said this year the "course was rough, completely different from last year." In fourth it was Bourdais, Fisk and Plake who'd had to do some digging after being high-centered. And fifth place went to Jim and Matt Christensen and Mark Goggin. Goggin, who was racing in his third 1000, had pumper helmet trouble, drove with his visor up, and his eyes were in bad shape. Ten of these cars finished, a tribute to good race prep, and fine pit service. The Baja 1000 proved to be too much for Class 7S. They showed up five strong, but none made it to the finish. A couple of long-time racers, Bill Rodriguez and John Holmes, both in Fords, were out before Borrego. Then Mike Horner, Toyota, and Tyler Fox, Ford, who'd been leading, fell by the wayside after Borrego and before Chanate wash. That left Ted Moncure moving along by himself in his Toyota. He's used up some 22 hours and 42 minutes by the time he got to San Telmo, but then he also disappeared off the charts. So it was a total wipe out for Class 7S. Class 7SX didn't fare any better.

l.l\.lc:!C::: 41ST RALLY RACC CATALUNYA Loeb/Citroen Take 10th Win B:, Martin Holmes Photos: Maurice Selden Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena moved into double digits as the won their ICJI' rally of 2005, seen here in their Citroen Xsara. Tenth time this season, Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena have climbed to the top of the winner's podium. "It was another perfect rally, but it is a bit early to talk about the chance of winning an 11th time! Just at this moment, we are simply happy that Citroen has won the Manufacturers' title for the third time running." Loeb was forever appreciative about the work of everyone who had made his amazing run of successes possible, and aware that the Junior title for Dani Sordo was just as important. "We Page 20 had just one worrying moment all rally, when we slid with two wheels on the grass at 200kph. That was even more frightening than when we met the cow on a stage a few rallies be-fore." Loeb eventually headed his teammate Francois Duval into a 1-2 result, which until the final stage had nearly been 1-2-3 before the Ford driven by Mikko Hirvonen beat Xavier Pons to the podium. A new headquarters base was cho-sen for this event. Instead of the Costa Brava area north of Barcelona, the rally was run entirely based to the south of the Barcelona region, in the .Piorat wine region near Tarragona, so Salou replaced Lloret de Mar as the base town for the RallyRACC Catalunya. While the Ceremonial Start and Finish were held in Salou itself, the rally headquarters, media centre and Service Park were at the PortAventura Theme Park complex, 2-3km from Salou. This region has often featured as the alternative area for stages to the traditional ones in the hinterland of the Costa Brava, January 2006 Daniel Sordo and Marc Marti took the honors in JWRC, they are seen here at speed in their Citroen C2 at Catalunya. but never for more than one day of rallying. Although many of the roads used this year were the same as those which featured the last time a world championship event was in this re-gion, in 2002, many roads had been resurfaced, and this led to a lot of change of character. In previous years the stages in this area have been fast and flowing and reasonably wide: the closest that rallying came to circuit racing, with a high level of grip. Cor-ner cutting has always been dramatic and dangerous for the cars. This year this opportunity had been substan-tially reduced. It was the penultimate round of the 2005 championship, and the final event to be held on as-phalt surfaces. For a team which has been so suc-cessful in national Spanish rallying, it was strange that the world champi-onship Citroen team had never won this event, although six years ago they did win the rally with a Kit Car! Their second team car had to be changed after Francois Duval crashed in Corsica, while all the other team cars were the same. This rally was the fmal official appearance of the current model Ford Focus WRC, a last fling for the team which had not won a world rally since this event a year ago. Mitsubishi made a last minute deci-sion on their number two driver: it was Gianluigi Galli but this time they only had a two car team here. Nicolas Bernardi was again Peugeot's nomi-nated second driver. He won the JWRC category on this event last year, driving a car from another French manufacturer ... Prodrive had a re-cent busy period in the Mediterra-nean region. Before Corsica, Petter Solberg completed a three day gravel test of the 2006 lmpreza WRC in Sardinia, while scoop pictures of the new Focus in action gave encourag-ing signs that we really will see the 2006 car in action in Australia. Shakedown was held some way away from the rally headquarters, over a dramatically unguarded road near Falset. Fastest, and maybe brav-est driver was Duval who, over three kilometres, was over two seconds faster than Bernardi while the usual favourites were more cautious. The two rally chassis rule seemed to have happened without problem, as in-deed had the juxtaposition of events on successive weekends. This was a special weekend for the Super 1600 cars, because the Antibes Rally was being held in the South of France (final and deciding round in the Eu-ropean championship) and here in Spain as the final round of the 2005 JuniorWRC. The number of contenders was down to two, between Dani Sordo and Guy Wilks. Sordo's adventures started at Shakedown when an alter-nator belt snapped and became en-tangled with the camshaft belt. Over-night, this required a cylinder head change while the crew walked over the ramp at the Ceremonial Start. All 13 JWRC contenders were at this event, the third time there had been a "full house" this year. Leg 1 6 Stages, asphalt, 155.82kms. Clouds hung over the hills as the rally headed away from Salou. It was difficult to know what the roads, which had been dry the day before, would now be like. Most drivers chose tyres which in fact proved to be too hard to be ideal. Sebastien Loeb started off in full command, 10 sec-onds quicker than Marcus Gronholm on the first stage, and pulled out an-other seven seconds on the second. Francois Duval hit a bank on the side of the road on the first stage and had a bad vibration caused by mud stuck in the wheel spokes, but rose to sec-ond place on Stage 2. Gronholm, against the trend, imagined the con-ditions would be wet and fitted tyres which did him well on the damp patches on the opening stage, but dropped him back on the second, when he fell from second place to fourth. There was little early techni-cal trouble at the top although Harri Rovanpera immediately suffered transmission pneumatic pressure problems on the first stage, as in Francois Duval and Sven Smeets were the silver medal winners, they are seen here hustling towards the checkers.

Armin Schwarz, the only top driver still not to have scored championship points this year, started badly after report-ing understeering trouble. Jan Kopecky punctured on the first stage and lost turbo boost on Stage 2. Dani Sola had a shock when he found his brakes were not properly bedded-in and as 18th car on the road found that a lot of mud had been thrown on to the tarmac by the earlier cars. Missing from the result of Stage 1 was Vouilloz's Fabia WRC, the driver off the road. The car was soon back in the service park being fettled ready for the next day. Stages 3 and 4 were challenges of another kind. Three was dry, 4 was humid. Everyone was good at one and bad at the other. Loeb continued to pull ahead. Gronholrn passed Kresta into third place. Good on Stage 3 were those on soft tyres like Sola, Xavier Pons and Gianlu~i Galli, good on 4 were drivers with hard tyres like Loeb, Gronholrn and Duval. Some drivers like Sarrazin and Mikko Hirvonen chose tyres which were too soft for Stage 3 ... Some like Bernardi just could ·not make a good decision. Petter Solberg' s challenge for victory ended near the finish of Stage 3 when he went off the road and broke the steering. Conditions on the final loop of the day were now very dry. Des-perate situations meant desperate measures and Rovanpera had the controlled central differential re-placed on his car by a viscous unit for the third loop, though Galli was doing very well with a revised con-trolled version. For the second day Harri planned to revert to the controlled system but with the experimental modifications which Galli had been enjoying since the start of the event. In the race for second place, Duval got back in front of Gronholrn on Stage 5 and pulled further ahead on Stage 6. Gronholrn: "Stage 6 (repeat of Stage 2) was dry and very fast which made it very difficult to place the car pre-cisely into the bends. I couldn't match Duval's time." The day ended with Loeb 4 3. 7 seconds ahead of his team-mate, the Makes' championship look-ing well assured, with Gronholrn an-other 10.4 seconds behind. Four Fords were in the next five places, with the only interloper being Galli in fifth place. On Stage 6 Sarrazin retired: he rolled the Subaru on a fast left-hander, the car caught fire but the crew were unhurt. This caused a ma-jor casino! The car ended up some 50 metres off the road in some bushes. Firemen were sent down the stage and following rally drivers found their way blocked by slow moving fire engines.

With a change of tires and drivers Shawn took the wheel and had an uneventful second lap. The combined time of 3: 12:24 was the fastest of the day. Son went seven minutes faster than father, however if you don't count the flat tire, it was probably a lot closer than that. They also discovered a bad c.v. joint when they went through after tech. Another father and son team,. Gustavo Vildosola and Gustavo Vildosola Jr., went 3:27:25 for the second fastest time of the day.

His winning time was 3:37:29. The other two guys were wishing they could have been so lucky. Jose Lopez and co-driver Pete Morquecho broke an upper shock mount on their Jimco Toyota, limped back to the pits, welded everything together, got back on the course only to get a flat tire and then ran out of fuel right at the end of the last lap. Their finishing time was 5:54:45. Yet another father and son team took the Class 12 honors. Gustavo Pinuelas Junior and Senior reported no problems on the way to a winning time of 3:41:40. Doug and Rudy Aleman were scheduled to leave the green at 09:03:30 but I don't know if they started or broke or whatever. They were not heard from again. Beny Canela used his Indio luck to drive and finish a clean race. He was also somewhat elated to find that the leaders of the 8 class, Juan Carlos Lopez and Ricardo de Los Cobos, who had been out in front of every-body, all day, broke the center link on the rear of the F-150 and had to stop for some weld-ing, but still managed to hold on to second place in class.

USRC INTERNATIONAL RALLY NEW YORK Lawless And Gillespie Win Text & Photos : Thomas Barker Tom Lawless and Jason Gillespie took the gold medal in New York, they're seen here in their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. The title "international" in In-ternational Rally New York did not merely signify that this U.S. Rally Championship round (and East-ern States Rally Championship event) carried a listing on the F.IA. calendar. It also had an entry rep-resenting the U.S., Canada, Eu-rope and South America. (Al-though some of the "foreigners" were actually U.S. residents of first-generation U.S.-born folks of for-eign descent.) Of the "international contin-gent" the Irish were the largest group. Georgia-based Seamus Burke and Irish co-driver Brian Sharkey had the first starting spot after winning Rally New York (an E.S.R.C. event, without "interna-tional" in the name) back in April. They were in Burke's Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 5, not the Libra Rac-ing Hyundai Tiburon used in the Spring. Behind them at number two were New York State residents Torn Lawless/Jason Gillespie (Mit-subishi Lancer Evo), who had taken the U.S.R.C. opener, the Cherokee Trails Rally in Tennes-Seamus Burke and Brian Sharkey were 2nd overall in New York, 1st overall in the Eastern States event in their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. see. Adrian McElvanney, a prom-ising driver from the Emerald Isle, had also entered, with co-driver Paul Goodman (borrowing a Mit-subishi Lancer Evo from former Rally New York winner John Drislane). U.S. Rally Championship con-tenders were well represented, some of them having trucked across the continent. Californians Peter Workum/Chrissie Beavis (Subaru Irnpreza WRX STi), in their third rally together, started at number three. The New Hampshire/Cali-fornia duo of Matt Iorio/Ole Holter (Subaru Irnpreza), leading the series after finishing third and second in the first two rounds, started fourth. And Californians Ken Block/ Alex Gelsornino (Subaru Impreza WRX STi), rep-resenting the very successful Ver-mont Sportscar team, started fifth. A very large contingent from metropolitan New York and the northeast (including, one might argue, Lawless/Gillespie), brought the starting field to 50 cars, with 20 cars entering the U.S.R.C. event and 44 for Eastern States points. The route was 365 miles long, through the Catskill Mountains, starting and finish_ing in Monticello, New York, with 102 miles of special stages. The Friday afternoon and Saturday morning stages were on dirt and gravel roads, those on Saturday after-noon and evening used pavement. For the first time, the organizers also arranged for the ceremonial start and finish, plus five specta-tor stages (the "Mighty M Gaming Super Special Stages") to be held on the Monticello Raceway horse racing track.

-~ OUTLAW 250 LUgo Takes It To The Banks By Steve Ruddick Photos: Trackside Photo Wayne Lugo and Bart Walker took the Class 1 win at Barstow as well as the overall victory in their Banks Powered truck. Barstow, CA: Race day for the MDR Outlaw 250 dawned clear and cool, as 55 entries lined up for the 8:00 a.m. green flag start. Twenty-seven racers saw the checkers at the finish line. The Saturday, November 12 race at Barstow was the last event of the MDR 2005 California Series. It was also a "double points" race, so many were also still in the hunt for several of the 2005 class champion-ships as well; but that's another "Dusty" story for another time. This was a six lap race on Course B at Barstow, and each lap was 38 miles long. The faster classes (1, 10, 5, 8, 7/7s and 16) went the full dis-tance. Classes 900, 1300, 1400 and drove their 800hp Banks Power 1700 went five laps, while Classes Ford to take the Overall win and 300, 1100, 1200, 1450 and 1750 first in Class 1 awards in 3:58:55, raced for four laps. averaging just over 57mph.

The Mike and Kevin James gang The Class 1 cars were first to see duo drove their Outlaw Racing the green, with seven entries. Wayne Lugo and co-driver Bart Walker Damn, it was close, Giti Gow/and took the Class 3 win by a mere one second after four and a half hours of racing. Barry Karakas led the Class 700 group all the way, he IM)(I with more than an hour and a half in hand at the checkers. #133 to both second in Class 1 and second Overall a little over 15 min-utes later, averaging almost 54mph. This was the first time out for their new 700hp Chevy V-8 powered Jimco chassis, and the James gang says they are "very pleased" with the car on its maiden shakedown race. Alex Staats in car # 120 took third in both Class 1 and third Overall about a half hour behind the James brothers, with an average speed of 48.6mph. Josh Waddell in car# 103 came in fourth in Class 1 and fourth Overall, another half hour behind Staats, and averaged a tad over 43mph. Peter Lang, #143, gave it the old 'true grit', but could not com-plete the required number of laps in the eight hour time limit, and DNF'd just a little over ten minutes late. Harley Letner took the Fast Lap award for Class 1 and drove hard in car # 138 thru Lap 3, but took a DNF after that. Eric Hamaan, #142, also DNF'd. Class 10: The Class 10 cars were next off the line with three entries, but one way or another, they all came to a bad ending ... the dreaded DNF. Dave Wood in car #1011 was front starter for this group and drove some consistent times through Lap 3, but was unable to make it past RX6 after that. Car# 1005 with,. Mark Hutchins driving was next in the green line at S/F. Hutchins took the Fast Lap award for Class 10 in 43: 13 (52.8mph) on Lap 2, but that was to be his last. Alain Fricker in #1017 took a DNF on the first lap. Matt Towery had a good day, he was the only survivor of the Class B battle running fairly fast and consistent. Class 5: Only one Class 5 car started the race, and it didn't par-ticularly have a good day. Darrall Clifton took the green flag in #525 and took the Fast Lap award on his first lap in 1:08:25 (33.3mph). There were no more laps for the lone Class 5 car after that. Page 32 Jason Gutzmer led Class 1100 all the way, he took the win with a bit more than twenty minutes in hand at the checkered flag. January 2006 Class 8: Three Class 8 trucks started next. Only one of them had the best race of the day. Matt Towery drove all six laps in his #818 'Scoop Vessels' F150 to take the Class 8 win in 5:55:22 at an average speed of 38.5mph. He also took the Class 8 Fast Lap award on Lap 1 (0:51:57 at 43.8mph). Towery ran a "flaw-less race" and consistent lap times, except for a dragging tailpipe on Lap 5. #818 is sporting a new small block motor mated to a C6 trans. Leif Hommey, 'massa mechanic, co-drove with Towery through Lap 2, when XXZ Hophe, fabricator, took over the # 1 shotgun seat. Raul Flores in #807 had a tough day, all day, and called it after two hard, three hour Dusty Times

Class 7S: Four racers saddled up to the starting line to battle it out in the 7s Stock Mini class. Eric Tadeja was the first off the starting line in Class 7s and had his #753 in the lead with the Fast Lap award for the class, at 55:00 minutes flat (41.4mph), at the end of the first lap. Tadeja also took home th:e First in Class trophy with an overall time of 6:42:35 and an average speed of 34 mph, despite having a flat tire, a busted shock bolt, and no brakes on Lap 2. This was Tadeja's first sea-son racing and a sweet victory for the team. Steve Scott in #7 50 was next off the line in Class 7s. Scott drove some fairly consistent lap times thru Lap 5, but struggled the last lap. His efforts were good enough to take Second in Class, completing the required six laps in 7:45: 14 at 29.4mph. Karl Stokes in #747 gave it his all, but still managed to DNF, even after completing the required laps, by finishing 12 minutes over the eight hour time limit; he still gets an "A" for effort. Things didn't fair much better for Johnny Walker in #746, who· didn't make Lap 6 be-cause race time had already expired. Class 1/2-1600: The 1600 cars went off the line next, with just three starters: Mike Meehan #1699, Ian Jameson #1612, and Joe Jeffrey # 1601. Joe Jeffrey didn't fair too well in# 1601, registering a DNF on Lap 2. But it was another story for Ian Jameson, who had a 12 minute lead over Meehan at the end of Lap 3, even though #1612 started second in class at the green flag. Jameson stumbled on Lap 4 however, and Meehan took the lead from there all the way to the checkers. Meehan took the First in Class trophy finish-ing in 5:07:16 for an average speed of 44.5mph; and Fast Lap award too, on Lap 4 at 49:05 and 46.5mph. That was also good enough for $1699 to take fourth Overall for the day as well. Meehan reported a "good clean day", except for getting smacked pretty good in the sand wash by a truck. Class 1450: The 'outlaw' class had 13 gunslingers in the last MDR shootout of the season, but only 10 would see the finish. It was a very close race between Dan Vance's Total Chaos #1459 and Steven Looney in #1463, but at the finish it was #1459 who saw the checkers just 50 seconds ahead of Looney. Dan Vance and co-driver Austin Farmer took both the First-in-Class trophy at 3:14:01 and 45mph, and the Fast Lap award Dusty Times LIST YOUR PHONE NUMBER, YEAR, MODEL AND ENGINE SIZE!

HACIN6 1NCOHPOHATEO Formerly Performance Drivetrain, Inc. (POI) presents another innovation in drivetrain technology ... '~;;.:.· The BB-1 TRANSMISSION ~ • ...,.~ Dan Vance had a great run, he took the gold medal in Class 1400 but it was close, second place was a mere 50 seconds behind. • Center Support - Stabilizes the input and counter shafts keeping them from flexing and moving out of alignment, allowing gears to mesh at optimal levels. • Splined Connection -The splined lever allows the shift cam to connect directly to the shift lever allowing for smoother and continuous shifting. The direct connection insures optimum efficiency thereby reducing stripping and breakage. The entire transmission spins easier and requires less horsepower. • Flexible-The innovative design allows for installation of the car's shifter on either the left or right side of the transmission. • Safer-The option to locate the shifter on either the left or right side of the transmission allows for installation of the driver's seat further from the left door. Increasing the distance between the driver and point of impact reduces the risk of injury in a driver's side collision. • Lighter-: The streamlined construction reduces the weight of the unit by 7 pounds ( as compared to similar models). • Oeaner-O•rings located on the shift cover, midplate, bellhousing, and front bearing retainer eliminate the need for sealer. 0-rings are not only better protection against potential leaks they allow for quicker and easier adjustments and cleanup. • longer Wear-The design of the gear teeth and the stabttity of the center shaft support both reduce the weir on gears thereby extending the fife of the transmission.

RALLY NEW Y DRK••• From pg 29 finishers. Burke/Sharkey, Workum/Beavis, and O'Brien Duffy took the top three places overall and in the P 1 (i.e. Open 4WD) class. Jeremy Drislane/Barry Goodman were fourth overall and in Pl, despite adding damage to the front bumper on Saturday af-ternoon. Their performance would have been good enough for fifth in the national, had they en-tered that as well. Martin O'Flynn/Bernhard Obry (Mitsubishi Eclipse) cheer-fully finished fifth, and won the SS2 class from Emilio Arce/Craig Thrall (Subaru lmpreu). They were followed home by Patrick Brennan/Donah O'Leary (Subaru lmpreza WRX STi) who took the SS 1 class. Dave Getchell/Erik Lee (Subaru lmpreza 2.5 RS) were the winners in the P2 class (small en-gine Open 4WD) and eighth over-all. They overcame a broken ex-haust on Friday, and possibly a speed disadvantage on Saturday because-they were using small di-ameter pavement tires. The teams of Joshua Wimpey/Jeremy Wimpey and Mark Lawrence/Robert Maciejski (both with a Volkswagen Golf GTi) staged a Dusty Times spirited contest for the M2 class (small engine, 2WD), well ahead of even the large engine and turbo.two wheel drivers. On Sat-urday the Wimpeys came back from a spin to pull out a 20 sec-ond lead for the class trophy. These teams were 11th and 12th overall. In the M 1 category (large en-gine, 2WD), Mike Hall/Dave Stockdill (Mitsubishi Mig4ty Max pickup) were the clear winners and 15th overall. This was despite the fact that they were running the event without a service crew, and tending to the truck from a tool box fastened to the load bed. Greg Healey/John Macleod (D3:tsun 2802) were second in class (21st overall), despite having the wrong rear spring and shock rates for the gravel stages in this rally. Eric Heitkamp/Nick Lehner (Acura NSX) got the award for the Stock class and 20th overall. The Acura sounded noisy for most of Friday, after losing the exhaust pipe on a stage. The crew installed a new one at midday on Saturday, and that came off during the af-ternoon. After the rally, chairman Ivan Orisek reported that International Rally New York will be back in the U.S.R.C. next September, with an all gravel format. His Spring event, which will become Rally New York U.S.A._, will return in April as an all pavement event U.S.R.C. round. ..-.lfW SCORE BAJA 1000 ... From pg 17 The Hall HZ stayed in frontthe rest of the way. Even though they broke some steering parts on the way down out of Mike's, and then continued to break them the rest 9f the way. They had no flats, and went on to take the win, with 40 minutes on the Hall and Winkel Hl. They'd lost a ball joint and half shaft and ran without it the final 150 miles. Griffin finished third, two and a half hours later, and none of the others made it in. The Stock Mini trucks were next with just two entries. One was the H3 Hummer of perennial Baja 1000 racer, Rod Hall, and the other was a new Honda, piloted by Gavin Skil-ton. This was just the second race for the Hummer. Hall led through Borrego, where he had over three hours on the Honda, which appar-ently had some "new car" blues. When Hall got to Borrego, Mike Winkel, who'd started the day in the Hl Stock Full Hummer, took over for a while. In the meantime, Skil-ton and his Honda disappeared, and Hall was left with no competition. He finished the race, giving himself another win in the record books. The Class 9 cars were next, with five starters, and they must have hated the dust from all those Hummers. January 2006 Eric Fisher put his Garibay into the early lead, with 17 minutes on Chris Haney in a Raceco, at Mile 83. Tony Modica ran third, only nine seconds behind him. At Borrego they'd lost Haney and Modica. Fisher still led, and now Sigal Greenberg and John Halla! ran second in their Chenowth, and Mike O'Donnell and Mike Kowitz were third in a Chenowth. They contin-ued to run in that order through Chanate Wash, and San Telmo. Isaac Chapluk took over for Fisher for the second stretch, then Hector Sarabia did a section, and Fisher got back in to drive to the finish. Fisher, Chapluk and Sarabia stayed aliead, at first an hour, and gradualiy building until they had over three hours on Greenberg and Hallal. Fisher and his crew had two flats, and no other problems. This was their fifth win this year. Greenberg and Hallal also finished, in second. But no one else made it. Class 3 had six starters. Chris Raffo had his Blazer in the lead at Alamo, with Kelly Beal and Brendan Fikes in second, about 20 minutes back. In third it was Ed Griffin and Jim Pritchard, in a Bronco. Last year's champs, Ken and Don Moss, had broken a coil spring and watched everyone go by while they replaced it with a softer one. At Borrego the Moss Bronco was back in front, and Matt, Noah and Gale Pike were second in their Blazer. Third place was in the hands ofJim Pritchard and Ed Griffin in a Bronco. Chuck Atkinson and Patrick Scanlan were out when their track bar broke before Alamo. The Moss brothers led through Chanate Wash and into San Telmo, but they'd broken another front spring, and after replacing it with a softer one, had to readjust their shocks to get the front end working right. The second broken spring had also taken out a brake line, which had to be repaired. Griffina nd Pritchard were second at San Telmo, and the Pikes were third. Beal and Fikes ran fourth and now Raffo was gone, last seen parked at Matomi Wash. The Moss brothers went on to take the win, with the Pike family, all of whom drove, finishing three hours later in second place. Not quite an-other hour back, Beal and Fikes brought the Nissan in for third place. Griffin and Pritchard didn't make it, and were seen heading home on a trailer. In the JeepSpeed class only one entry showed up. Norman Cesena made it through Chanate Wash, but didn't get to San Telmo, disappear-ing after over 15 hours of tough driv-ing. Class 11 looked good at the start, with six starters. All of them made it through Alamo, and Dave Hendrickson had the lead, with 10 minutes on Eric Solorzano. In third it was Ruben Camacho, another five minutes back. Two of them dropped out before Borrego, and down there it was still Hendrickson, followed by Solorzano and Camacho. They were having a pretty good race. Sean Malabanan ran fourth, but he was nearly four hours down. At Chanate Wash there were only two. Solorzano had the lead and Camacho was second two hours later. Hendrickson was gone. And as San Telmo there was only Solorzano. And at Llano Colorado there were none. None of the Class lls were able to make it in. There was pne "Experimental Class 11" car entered. It was Rene Rodriguez in a Class 11 with dual port heads, which will, according to Bill Savage, be legal next year. He started late because he broke a throw out bearing heading for the start. But then he wasn't able to get to Alamo at all. There were nine Sportsman Buggy entries, but only six of them got past Alamo. When they reached Borrego Marty Beal had the lead in a Mirage, with over an hour on Jesus Jimenez in a Baja Bug. In third, another two hours back was Rob Rill in an ORE buggy. Heidi Steele, Cody Stuart, Jus-tin Smith and Greg Boyer had bro-ken a front arm on their Stout In-dustries Buggy, and lost two hours Wlth repairs .. When they got to San felmo, the timing and scoring folk had prob-lems reading their car numbers. Steele et al were running near the front now, and Beal, was still mov-ing, and so was Jimenez. But we don't have precise times. Rill was gone. Dean Lunski was also in the lead pack in his Chenowth. Lunski went on to take the win, while Steele, Stuart, Smith and Boyer were second on three wheels. Their left front arm "fell out" eight miles before the finish, so they came in without it. Beal finished third, an-other three and a half hours later, and he was the last Sportsman 'Buggy to make it in. There were nine Sportsman Truck entries, but only six of them made it through Alamo. At that point Vince Demaio led in his Jeep Grand Cherokee, with 11 minutes on Michael Kim in a Toyota. In third it was Miguel Jimenez in a Ford F150, and fourth place was in the hands of Marshal Madruga in an-other F150. When they got to Borrego it was still Demaio in front, now with al-most three hours on Madruga. Jimenez had fallen out, and so had Jerry Zaiden, in a Ford Ranger. At Chanate Wash'the lead was in Madruga's hands, and he had about 40 minutes on Demaio and his co-driver, Dan Fresh. Mark Growe, last year's points champ, was third now in his Ford, but apparently having some problems as he was five hours off the pace. No one else got to Chanate. At Llano Colorado it was Demaio and Fresh in front again, and now Madruga was three and a half hours down. Demaio and Fresh went on to take the win, reporting no mechani-cal problems, but, they said, their air conditioning had failed and they'd had to open their windows. It had been "a very long day." None of the others finished. There was just one entry in the Legend class. Joseph Cota and Darin Shaver brought their fiberglass buggy, with updated safety equipment. It's-a · VW powered car. They made it to the Chanate Wash pit in 16 hours and 39 minutes, and then expired somewhere between there and San Telmo. And, so, the final event of 2005 goes into the record books, and a new champion is crowned. Caleb Gaddis, racing his first year in SCORE's series, took the overall sea-son points championship with his victory in the 1/2-1600 class. It'll be interesting to watch him in ensuing seasons. SCORE starts everything all over again, with the 2006 Laughlin event, January 12th through the 15th, and then they head back to Baja for the San Felipe 250, March 10th through 12th. The Dusty Times will be there, to tell you all about the racing. SCIIE Page 41

Page 42!!!C:: 18TH TELSTRA RALLY AUSTRALIA Duval/Smee ts Win For Citroen By Martin Holmes Photos: Maurice Selden Francois Duval and Sven Smeets take to the water in their Citroen Xsara, they took the gold medal at the Telstra Rally Australia. "It's going better and better for the future, it was the first rally we had been free to drive as we wanted," explained the young Francois Duval, winner of Telstra Rally Australia, just five days before his 25th birthday. After being temporarily dropped during the 2005 season for unreliable perfom1ances, this was an ultimate comeback for the Bel-gian. On this event Citroen scored a record 11th win in the season, a happy memory before they leave the champi-onship, but there was a sad result for their stablemate Peugeot, both of whose cars retired. The final round of the 2005 world championship was an in-credible affair. Sebastien Loeb and Petter Solberg both crashed, there was an astonishing performance by Colin McRae for Skoda, in which he rose as high as second place.

Missing was Daniel Carlsson, his 307WRC off the road and burned out to a cinder. Antony Warmbold rolled on 6 and retired. Xavier Pons hit a tree near the end of Stage 5. Although Pons com-pleted the stage he could not continue. Gianluigi Galli was delayed by power steering trouble. In Stage 6 Francois Duval stalled at a hairpin and this dropped him back behind McRae, and Atkinson's moment of glory ended, the steering failed and although he was able to continue to service after Stage 7, he was down to 13th place. By the end of the day he was not as buoyant as be-fore. Atkinson's problem let teammate Solberg ahead, so it was still Subaru leading. During the run back to service in Perth, Galli found his Mitsubishi was running inexplicably on three cylinders. Near the end of Stage 7 Gronholm had a bolt fail on his front suspension and although he finished the stage and headed for Perth he was stopped by police who ordered· him to repair it, there and then. He did, but 30km from destination it failed again and the whole Peugeot programme came to a sad end But the big story- Colin McRae was up to third place in the Skoda, behind Solberg and Loeb. "Yes, after a careful beginning it is getting better and bet-ter." On Stage 8 Loeb got ahead of Solberg. Suddenly though it was Loeb whose luck ran out and things just kept on getting better for the Scot. On Stage 9, the final forest stage of the day, Loeb recorded his first accident retirement for over two years. It was at the end of a long fast stretch, and he just under-steered off at a left hand bend. Did he misjudge his speed, was he visually con-fused by the low sunlight and the mezmerising effect of the fast moving shadows through the trees? Solberg, who took the lead, said "For Stages 8 and 9 I took the wrong tyres, which were too hard. Sebastien knew that a11.d decided he would have a big attack. Now." Whatever the cause, McRae was now second! Galli got going properly again but Toni Gardemeister came back with a bent Focus. "I went off the road and the car bounced over some tree stumps but luckily we got back to the road again. Shades of Deutschland, but more dangerous. The bonnet was crumpled and the crew were dirty, be-cause of the dust in the car. Then Ro-man Kresta arrived, with rumples down the side of the car. "It was difficult to drive, because my door kept flying open! I scraped some trees." Before the two final superspecials of the day, McRae's co-driver, Nicky Grist, confirmed they really were second, but not for long, after the next stage, 10, they had fallen back behind Duval again. In PCWRC, Hamed Al Wahaibi drove up to the control O on Thurs-day evening, qualified for champion-ship purposes as a starter, and then withdrew for financial reasons.

PONY EXPRESS ••• Story Of Holly Gorrell An open letter from a father whose daughter was killed at Glamis Octo-ber 29, 2005. • M 2865 Gundry Ave. nal HIii, CA 90755 ff/Ii 'IIOS t//Coole Driving Suits Rod End Boots Neo Synthetic Oil . Pedormance Plum Ing l~l~Flt:£_ -~;I•lii'1•l Page 46 562-427-2375 My name is Patrick Gorrell and together with my wife, Samantha, we have managed to raise five won-derful children. From the time that our kids were toddlers, our family began taking trips to a place in the desert called Glamis. For those of you who may not be familiar with Glamis, it is essentially a stretch of mountainous sand dunes that run from the middle of the Salton Sea and extend southward to the Mexi-can border. The dunes there are truly beautiful. They are made up of a seemingly endless stream of sandy valleys, ridges and deep bowls. In our early trips to Glamis we found it to be the perfect venue for family adventures. In our many trips there we were joined by a large num-ber of families from our local com-munity (Canyon Lake, CA). To-gether, there in Glamis we taught our kids to ride and helped each other in the task of raising them into adults. We camped wagon wheel style in our motor homes. At night we ate our meals around a roaring campfire while we shared the day's adventures and an endless stream of stories late into those chilly desert nights. We found it so ideal, that we be-came hard-core regulars. For more than two decades during the cooler winter months we would go to Glamis just about every other week-end. We became accustom to eating a little sand in our turkeys. We re-lentlessly cleaned sand out of every nook and cranny of our motor homes and trailers. We washed sand our of our hair for days after we got back home. But despite these prob-lems, there was one overwhelming factor that kept us going back again January 2006 and again. It was fun ... About as much fun as anyone could possibly have. It is hard to put into words the feeling of exhilaration and the ab-solute joy that comes from riding in the dunes at Glamis. It is a very three dimensional experience. You can ride up hills, you can ride down hills, you can ride around and around in bowls and valleys of unimaginable proportions. You can feel the exhila-ration of achieving weightlessness during a jump. You can carve turns in the sand that feel like they will rip you right off of your bike. And you can ride for hours at a stretch until your arms are so tired that you just can't use them any more. From my experience, there is simply no feeling on earth that can match Glamis for its ability to deliver a sense of free-dom and power. Growing up and learning to ride there, my daughter Holly became addicted to these simple, yet very pow-erful pleasures. She was a great rider, and her experience at Glamis left her with sand in her blood and in the deepest parts of her soul. Because of its irresistible attrac-tion, over time this one-time haven for family adventures became increas-ingly crowded. In fact, it is danger-ously overcrowded these days. Be-cause of this, and because of our old age I guess, we stopped going there as regulars. But my daughter Holly made sure that we went back every now and then. Her love for the place kept drawing her back for her neces-sary Glamis fix. I loved riding with Holly. She was just great. But October 28, 2005 we went back to Glamis for another very special purpose. Holly and her sister Heather had started a line of women's riding apparel called DAMZL. Together, Holly and Heather identified a need in the off road motor cycle industry that was very personal to them. Despite the fact that they were tough enough to ride with the best of us, they are also beautiful women and have a strong sense of fashion and taste. They re-sented the fact that for more than 30 years, they had to dress in riding clothing designed by men -for men. And from their experience they knew that they could design clothing spe-cifically designed for the woman rider. Clothing with more color and far more practical for women. Their theme slogan that I dearly love is "Feminize The Machine". This founding concept became their man-tra and it symbolized what was to become a real quest for both of them. If Holly had a goal with DAMZL it would be to put a woman dressed in pink at the head of a pack of aggres-sive riders. They went to Glamis that week-end primarily as vendors. They were embarking on the necessary market-ing task of gaining exposure and ac-ceptance and creating an identity within the riding community. And Glamis is certainly one of the best places to do this. On that Friday, Holly and her fiance Eric spent the best part of the morning taking pictures of Holly riding and jumping some dunes. The few brief minutes she spent doing this did little to satisfy her need to spend some time seriously shredding up some sand. The rest of that Fri-day Holly spent working the DAMZL sales booth with Heather and she begrudgingly resisted her Dusty Times

temptations to go back out in the dunes and get some sand in her hair. On that Saturday Holly was back in the booth again. She was dying for a ride, but kept putting it off until late in the day. And then fi-nally before it got too late her mo-ment came. Holly fulfilled her dream. She mounted her bike dressed in pink and led a pack of five riders out into the· sand. As she had dreamed, she led the way and challenged everyone fol-lowing to keep up with her. I can sense what was in her heart as she threw caution to the wind for a moment just long enough to miss sight of an approaching dune buggy. In the blink of an eye she was irrepa-rably crushed. And as she laid there in dte sand dressed in her pink DAMZL shirt, Eric, the love of her life held her hand, cradled her head and told her just how much he loved her while she passed away from him. And so that is what happened just a week ago as I write this today. Now many of us here would de-scribe this whole episode as tragic. But if you really knew Holly the way I did, then it would be much more appropriate to describe it as poetic. Holly died very quickly. She died doing the thing she liked to do most, and in the place that she liked the most. She died in the arms of the man she loved most dearly- the man that she called the love of her life. I am very proud of the fact that her life and her end have become the inspiration for her sister to continue with the goals they set together for DAMZL. I think this reflects posi-tively on their personal strength and character. I feel blessed to be the fa-ther of such a great family. It is with mixed emotions that I reflect on how I feel about Glamis and other popular off road riding areas. On one hand, our family en-joyed countless adventures and very positive experiences there. O~ the other hand, it's the place that I lost my daughter. Upon reflection have come several conclusions. First, I believe strongly that it is up to each parent or individual rider to determine if it is appropriate or safe enough to ride in these places. Clearly, I do not believe that this de-cision should be made by the BLM or any other government agency. In my mind their job is to protect our ability to make these choices, not to make them for us. • stock And Hl(lh Jtel'lormant:e VWf'nlnsaJtles • AH:t:ory•f'nllned ftlendeola Builder and AuthorlZed Distributor~ • 60 Yea,s combined Expetlence • unsurpassed Rellablllty • High OUallty I &ow Pllce snJFF~~'=! Sl1Jpplng from our TWO callf'Omla locatJonsl My strongest feeling is that riders and buggy drivers must learn to tem-per their enthusiasm in favor of more caution. Especially in these very crowded areas. Perhaps the easiest way to do this is to simply not to ride or drive beyond what your field of visioQ can let you be in control of. If you can see what lies ahead and you are confident "that there are no sur-prises, let that be the opportunity to go for it and get your thrills. It will eventually come. You owe it to your-self, co-riders and others that might be tragically affected by your impa-tience. As individuals we owe it to the other people around us not to jeop-ardize their safety because of your lack of self control. We simply don't have the right to take other people's safety for granted.

Defending North American champions Pat and Nathalie Ri-chard scored a triumphant vic-tory Saturday to win the overall Rally America championship title at the eighth and final round in the series. The team got off to a strong start at the Lake Superior Pro Rally on the forest roads of northern Michigan, building a lead early in the race and driv-ing conservatively to the top spot on the podium. "I didn't really break too much of a sweat today," the driver said Saturday. Even so, this has been a chal-lenging season for the brother/ sister duo and the pressure was on this weekend. The team has been locked in a fierce fight with fellow Group N competitors Stig Blomqvist, a former World Rally Champion, and co-driver Ana Goni.

difficult conditions, which typi-cally include high speeds On tree lined roads with variable levels of grip. The rally covered over 80 miles of competitive special stages along the northern tip of the Upper Peninsula of Michi-gan. The rally featured mostly gravel or hard packed dirt roads and one hair raising paved mountain road.

"This was a lot of fun, we had no problems at all and I didn't put a scratch on the car, its been a great season and I can't wait for next year," ex-claimed Pastrana at the podium champagne spray. Ken -Block and his co-driver Alex Gelsomino didn't have it so easy. They battled all week-end and had to charge through the difficult conditions to claim third in the Group N class. "I'm not very confident driving at night yet, I don't have the expe-. rience yet, so we lost some time Friday and had to fight for it back on Saturday," explained DC Shoes co-founder and Presi-dent Ken Block. Ken and Alex attacked on Saturday, even win-ning one stage outright but stayed within their limits on the slippery roads, "One of the stages was so slippery it was worse than driving at a snow rally, you had grip one second and then absolurely nothing the next," explained Ken.

He also won BITD's 4-Stroke Pro Championship, and the only racer to grab wins in all 5 BITD races in 2005 among ALL the classes. (4 and 2 wheels) After his impressive Baja 500 win, Honda was faced with a difficult decision. Continue to ig-nore the kid and have him continue to beat them, or hire the kid and have him start winning for them. Just a simple business decision, right? Well, for this year's Baja 1000 race Mikey did suddenly find himself signed up by Honda as their #3 rider on their factory "A" Team. A very good busi-ness decision as it turned out, as their # 1 factory rider came down with the flu and only rode about 200 miles. That meant that Mikey and the other factory dude had to pick up the slack ... and won it going away! A unique double for our lad, winning at the Baja 500 as a privateer and a win at the Baja 1000 as a factory dude! He started out racin' on bikes, but Mikey changed directions and joined the car Checkers, having a couple of good showings out at the local races on four wheels. But, he decided he wasn't quite done with bikes quite yet and moved in the com-plete opposite direction as most Checkers do .... From the car Check-ers over to the bike Checkers. Related to NASCAR's Richard Childress, Mikey has winning in his blood. And, after he's through kickin' ass on a bike, you can bet he'll be bringing that talent of his back over to Check-ers Off-Road and pick up a ride in one of the fatser hi-dollar classes.

January 2006 ,,,--B, Lisa Kenned, 2005 is quiclclyroming to a cbie, and Fair MEMBERS have finished out the year in grand style. Thereweremany-.icto-ries during the year at various races, and several racers finished as points champi-ons with SCORE and MORE. FAIR would like to thankever)Qnewho partici-pated and volunteered at all the races to make it such an exciting. eventful, and po-ductiveyear. FAIRmemhersventuredcbvn to the SCORE TeaJte Baja 1000 in NO\lelll-ber, and Chris Bowman and his team had quite an adventure that lead them to a vicrory in the 5 class, and gave him the points Ownpionship in that class as well. Jerry Longo drove the first half of the race with ClmckMillitelloas the codriver. Ten miles into the race theysufkreda flat front tire which led them to decide to double up on the spares before ~ing through "The Summit". Theytben limped into du next scheduled pit with no power steering, an-other flat, and no spare tires. When asked whathappened,Jenyrqxiedthattheywere nailed by a car and it took the spares off, so they had been running on a flat for the last 15 miles. Once the steering was re-paired, the tire was replaced, and theywere outfitted with another spare, they were baclc in the race. Ar RM 400 Chris Bow-man replaced Jerry in the driver's seat and Johnny Brockway came aboard to co-drive. They were running well until they reached RM 505, rounded a down hill turn, crossed 0\/ef a water crossing, and looked uphill to see two cars stuclc rom-pletcly blocldng theWJ)f. Severalmorecars had lined up behind them when Johnny jurnpedoutofthecarand)'elledforevery-one to get out and help mO\le the cars. One was finally able to get out on its own, but it took the rest of the group to get the other car unstuclc and out of the way so everyone rould rontinue the race. Chris and Johnny then ran well through Ojo; Negros and baclc onto the highway for Ire lastsectioo, until theyventured through the villages and made a wrong tum. Chris saw a SCORE sign .md thought that he needed to nrrn right, but Johnnytold him the OPS said they should have gone straight. Sure enough theyseea Pro Trude ~straight, so they try to getrumedaround but in rheproce;.5end uprunningthrough someone's badey.irdand taking their laun-chylinewith them. I..uckilytre~were race fans, just laughed, gave them the thumbs up, and pointed out the oourse to them. Once bade on oourse they made it into Ensenada and to the finish line to winClass5. FAIRmemberGregCrew,sponsored by l.uca.5 Oil, drove in the Baja 1 CXX>with his team in Class 12. Theywentintothe race with the intent of conquering Baja. They were up against 18 other cars in this class and were able to finish in eighth place after 24 hours and 41 minures. Their ream included Greg, Butch Warden,Milce Parr, Chris Parr, Keith Martin, and Kevin Mar-tin. They only had two flats with their Mickey 1bomp;on tires, one due toa nail and the other due to hitting a rock. Just before ~ingup "The Summit", they high centered on a roclc and in the proces.5 of gettingoutrealiied they had a broken lim-iter strap on the rear left arm as well. Once unstuclcand repaired, theywere baclcinto the race. Their Mailman Motor from Leonard Perez ran great the entire race, and the Wright Gear BCl!c built by Rick Wrightdidnotmissagear.Alongwithtre FAIR pit support, they also wish to thank Gledhill Racing, Parr Racing, TNT Rac-ing, and Depina Edco Racing for all their support during the race. In December, the MORE Holiday 200 was the final FAIR race of the year. FAIR members had 13vehicles entered in this TO'yS for Tots event, and contributed hundredsof tO'ySasweil.

Aggie By Judy Smith Often, at the end ofa tough Baja race, a competitor will say, "Aggie pulled me out" Or maybe, "Aggie winched me up the hill." Those are phrases \\'e hear over and over, and finally, curiosity got the better of us. Aggie is actually Clyde Parsons, and he's an off road angel in disguise. Years ago, when he lived in Oregon, he was an off road racer. Up there they did short oourse off road, which meant they went really fast for a short time and then it was over. When Aggie moved down into the great southwest he tried desert racing, but, he says, "I wasn't very good at desert racing. I drove too fast and crashed." In 1989 he bought a semi, and with it he did pits for BFGoodrich for about a year. He also owned a three quarter ton Chevy 4x4 with utility boxes, and a oouple times when BRJ didn'tneed a pit, he went out to some tough spot on the course and helped the racers. It was fun. Aggie still helps BFG with a full pit set up when the races go to I.a Paz, but when they · don!t he indulges in his hobby. He's got a friend, Jeff Abenshien, in a yellow Toyota, who often goes with him, and Aggie's been taking his daughter, Michelle, along with him since she was a baby. She's now a high school senior. Basically, he's a volunteer, but BRJ does reimburse him for fuel. But ifhe breaks his truck, the cost of repairs is on him. He says, "We love it-we like to help people. It's kinda like racin', without havin' all the grief they have." It's like a hobby. He's found himselfhelping people at the Summit in the past, and, while each racer had to go up that awful climb just once, Aggie did it over and over and over, towing up racers who couldn't quite do it on their own. He also brings the permanently damaged racers back out to where their crews can easily pick them up. It's nothing, he says, to tow three or four race cars at a time. He says the record was six on a rope. And ifhe comes to a hill that won't allow him to tow them all up at once, he takes each one up individually, ~ti! they're all on top. Aggie says the worst he's ever seen was at the 2005 Baja 500. He was beyond Simpson's, on the hill before the intersection with Mike's Road. He said, "people were just awl. And he had so much work to do that he never got over to the big traffic jam near El Coyote. He said he felt bad about that. This year at the 1000, Aggie was stationed in Mato mi Wash, where he didn't have as much work as he'd anticipated. Still, those he helped will be eternally grateful. He'd broken an axle on the way in to his spot, and during the long night, he broke a rear spring. So, to quote one grateful racer: " ... Imagine a very heavy old Chevy truck with a service body which is FULL of spare pam, bolts and nuts, welders, etc. That doesn't stop him or his daughter, out she jumps and unloads the biggest high lift jack I have ever seen. Up goes the truck and Aggie selects a large block of wood and places that in between the rear axle and the inner body-NOPE-too big. Out comes a hatchet and the block is reduced to the correct size. He then drove that 60 miles back to San Felipe through the worst whoops I have ever seen. Aggie is my HERO." Aggie's a hero to a lot of racers. Lots of finishers wouldn't have made it ifnot for him.
