Trail Notes •. ~ FINAL FLAG -We were saddened to learn of the passing of Akton "Ak" Miller, 84 years old and a pioneer drag racer who built cars and raced in many venues for many, many years. Ak began racing in the 1930's on the dry lakes as a charter member of the Roadrunners, one of many groups that founded the SCTA (Southern California Timing Association.) Ak was a charter member of the NHRA, serving as vice-president with Wally Parks as president. Ak competed in the Pikes Peak Hillclimb for many years, won his class nine times and also competed in the Baja 1000, winning his class in 1963. Ak raced many times in the La Carrera Panamericana in his El Caballo de Hierro, The Iron Horse. As a teenager, Ak worked in the Nixon family store and, when at the White House with a group of racing personalities, President Nixon walked into the room and said, "Ak, did you bring me a candy bar?" Small world. There are no survivors and there will be no service. Ak has asked his friends to scatter his ashes at the Bonneville, Pikes Peak and Baja race course. Ak will be missed by all who knew him. NEW SNORE OFFICERS -The new group of SNORE people, willing to donate many, many hours of their time putting on races for all of us are: President -John Pellissier, Vice President -Don Wall, Race Steward -Kenny Freeman, Jr., Sgt. At Arms -Cameron Hughes, Treasurer -Debi Tapert, Secretary -Amanda Gubler. Congratulations to all the new officers and many thanks to those who ser11ed in 2005. FOR YOUR INFORMATION -Motorcycles emit 'disproportionately high' amounts of air pollutants. Motorcycles collectively emit 16 times more hydrocarbons, three times more carbon monoxide and a "disproportionately high" amount of other air pollutants compared to passenger cars, according to a Swiss study to be published in the Jan. 1 issue of the American Chemical Society's journal Environmental Science & Technology. The study, by Ana-Marija Vasic and Martin Weilenmann of the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research, found both two-and four-cycle motorcycle engines emitted significantly more of these pollutants than automobile engines. Particularly worrisome are the high levels of hydrocarbons emitted by Japanese, German and Italian two-wheelers, according to the study. Some hydrocarbons have been linked to global warming, while others are suspected of being carcinogenic. Motorcycles aren't a primary means of transport in most developed countries, the authors note. As a consequence, they say, "the importance of [motorcycle] emissions has been underestimated in legislation, giving manufacturers little motivation to improve after treatment systems." Until recently, for instance, U .S. emission standards for highway motorcycles hadn't been updated in 25 years, despite the fact that these vehicles produced more harmful exhaust emissions per mile than cars or even large sports utility vehicles, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. However, a new EPA rule, which goes into effect in January, will require manufacturers to reduce combined emissions of hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides in motorcycle exhausts by 60 percent. When the rule takes full effect in 2010, the EPA estimates it will reduce emissions of these pollutants by about 54,000 tons a year, and save approximately 12 million gallons of fuel annually by preventing it from evaporating from fuel hoses and tanks. The American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society is a nonprofit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress and a global leader in providing access to chemistry -related research through its multiple databases, peer-reviewed journals and scientific conferences. Its main offices are in Washington, D.C., and Columbus, Ohio. You'd think some of these studies would be trying to cut the price of gasoline. There are literally thousands of these research groups, hea11ily funded by 11arious go11ernments all working to "sa11e us" from the en11ironment. The money could be better spent. B EST IN THE DESERT AND GPS -Best In The Desert has announced that it will soon be requiring a OPS tracking system on all race vehicles. The IriTrack System was utilized on five competitors vehicles during the Henderson's Terrible 400 and the system will be installed on the Trick Trucks and the Class 1 cars who are attempting to qualify for the top 20 starting positions at the Parker 425 event. Competitors in these two classes should contact International Racing Consultants (Steve Myers & Phil Membury) 714-544-0668 It is our understanding that all vehicles will be required to utilize this equipment by the time the BITD Vegas To Reno Race comes around. The IriTrack Mounting Kit is available for a one time purchase cost of $375 or a per event rental cost of $100. The IriTrack Controller Unit is a rent only unit, available at a per event cost of $27 5. Casey Folks, owner and director of Best In The Desert said, "IriTrack truly is a fantastic safety, organizational and promotional tool that will change the face of our sport. I am happy and proud to be the first off road championship organizer to bring this revolutionary system to the American off road world. Of course, this technology has a cost, but it finally appears rather small when compared to the tremendous improvement of the safety of our racers that IriTrack brings to the sport of off road." IriTrack has been in use, then mandated by all the FIA and FIM cross country rally organizers in Europe, Africa and the Middle East for two years. It has been responsible for a considerable Page& Ensenada-Mexicali-San Felipe COLORADO HILL CLIMB ASSOCIATION BARB VAHSHOLTZ, PRESIDENT (719) 531-3642 W/(719)687-9827 H P.O Box 8286 COL.ORADO SPRINGS, CO 80933 (719) 653-8449 CORP P.O.

MDR BUD LIGHT DASH -The traditional New Years Eve race in the low desert was a roaring success. 116 cars and trucks participated and it was a hell of a race. The pit area stretched out of sight and, according to some people on hand there were about 10,000 spectators out to watch the fun and games. A commercial promoting the race was aired on on ESPN, TNT and FX to more than 38,000 homes in the Yuma, Arizona area and to 18,000 homes in Calexico, El Centro, Brawley and Imperial. The only problem was, late in the day, the winds kicked up and they were howling, so a lot of sand was ingested along with the traditional New Year libations. David Scaroni took the Trophy Truck win, Andy McMillin took the Class 1 win, 'ol buddy Billy Robertson was second in class, Giti Gowland took Class 3, Carlos Albanez was the Class 5 winner, Arturo Cervantes took the win in Class 5-1600, Justin McNeil was the Class 700 winner, Mike West took the honor in Class 750, Jim Miller took the gold in Class 9, Phil Finch took Class 10 honors, Scott Beale came across second in 10, Jeremy Altman won Class 11 by a bunch, Terry Ingold was the Class 1300 winner, Steve Looney was the Class 1400 winner, Mark McMillin followed him in, the Burgess/Steele duo won Class 1500 and Daniel McMillin was less than a minute behind in the second spot. Lots of racers, lots of dnfs but a good time was had by all. The whole story, plus lots of pictures will be in the next (March issue) of Dusty Times. MOR would like to thank all the racers for their support. Mojave Desert Racing is celebrating it's 10th anniversary this year. Congrats from all at Dusty Times.

As the last few bikers fin-ished their first lap, the cars and trucks were being started. The racers were all lined up in "fast-est cars first" order, with the SNORE cars intermixed with the BITD cars. A few racers had en-tered both events, but most raced one or the other. BITD timing and scoring timed everyone, but SNORE had their own timing and score working also, as a backup. Chuck Hovey made it look easy, he flew around the course in his great looking Jimco, took the Class 1500 win as well as the overall. The BITD had their usual "Time Trial" the day before the race, and out of those who ran, the fastest 15 were started at the front of the whole thing, fastest car first, one minute apart. Brian Collins had the honor of being the first car off the line in his Chevy Trick Truck. Henderson, NV: Chuck Hovey blasted his four cylinder Jimco around the McCulloch Mountains in early December, to take the overall win at the BITD Henderson event, and win the season points in Class 1500 as well as the Pro Dirt champion-ship. This race was special because it was a combined event, with BITD and SNORE working to-gether. When he realized that the two organizations had picked dates and courses that were very close together (in time and geog-raphy), Casey Folks got to won-dering if it might work better to combine them. Folks talked to Bud Pico, who's in charge of special events for Henderson, and Pico liked the idea a lot. He reasoned that if the two events were combined, it would bring in more people all at one time. That would be a plus for Henderson. So they brought the idea to the SNORE people, who also liked it. For one thing, they've done some co-pro-motions in the past, and liked the results. And, for another, the The ProTruck Class win went to Alan Levinson, he's seen here flying his Ford towards the coveted checkered flag. First 1600 in 8/TD, ,!id 1600 in SNORE was Jeremy Harmon, seen here in his Mirage during his trouble free run at Henderson. Pages BITD would provide all the vol-unteer workers, and SNORE's volunteers would be able to take a weekend off and enjoy the race. And, also, SNORE was pleased to get an opportunity to dem-onstrate to the world at large that off road promoters are able to cooperate and work together to the benefit of the sport. It was a go. , It was fairly simply done. BITD had two course laid out, one for his bikes and quads, and another, 68 miles long, for cars and trucks. The bike/ quad event Things got a little tense when Folks, helping officiate at the start line, started to get radio reports telling him that the lead Trick Trucks were coming around faster than he'd expected.

The LeDuc clan had a good race, they took the Class B honors in their good looking Skyjacker Ford, seen here at takeoff. Fe.bruary 2006 gether, i.e.: 15 seconds instead of 30 seconds. But it was too little, too late, and some of the front runners had completed their first laps before everyone got started. The flagmen worked like troopers to direct the faster vehicles safely through the start area, and no one got run over or bumped, so it worked out all right, although a few of the late starters, in limited vehicles, didn't really like having to do their first lap with the Trick Truck and Class 1500 cars pass-ing them. But, even if they'd all been started before the fast guys came around, the fast guys would have been lapping them -just a little further along the road. It was actually no big deal. Just ner-vous making for the flag men. There were 13 6 combined starters in the car/truck classes. Seventy-nine were BITD entries, and 57 were SNORE entries. As if it wasn't complicated enough, with two races happening on course at the same time, it be-came even more complex when an accident occurred out on course. Steve Staats, in a Protruck, was in dust chasing another vehicle, when suddenly the other vehicle moved to the left, and Staats saw a car parked directly in front of him. He turned hard left, but still hit the left rear tire of the vehicle. The impact threw Staats' Protruck up and over and also violently shoved the other vehicle side-ways. Unknown to Staats until after the dust had settled, the driver of that car, Pete Claas, had been standing next to his vehicle at the time of impact. When his car slewed around it his him so hard it threw him up and to the front, breaking both his legs and one arm. Staats called for emergency help and Claas was airlifted to a Las Ve-gas hospital. His son, who'd been in the passenger seat, was shaken but unhurt, and Staats and his son were also all right. The Protruck was badly damaged and could not continue. Officials had to stop the race at the acci-dent site when the helicopter landed to load up the injured driver and take off again. They took car numbers and times, and later deducted the times from the total finish time recorded for each car. But it meant that in-terested observers (and pit crews) were uncertain of who was running in what position. Cor-rect finish positions were impos-sible to figure, and the finish list was not corrected until some time after the vehicles had fin-ished. Therefore, because the lap Dusty Times

BITD RACE: In the 1500 class, which was required to do five laps, there were 12 racers.

They had two minutes on Kevin Colan in his Chenowth, and then Danny and Tom Ebberts were on the same minute as Sam Berri in his Jimco, only three minutes behind the lead pair.

Class 7300 had only one en-try also. Rob MacCachren and Steve Olliges, with a good lead in the class points, were the only ones to show for this event. They talked it over with Casey Folks, and decided that there was no reason for them to trash their Ford by doing four or five laps. Folks gave them a two lap re-quirement, and once they'd fin-ished them they had their win and the season points in the class. They had no problems. Class 3100 had two starters. Mike Falkosky had a relatively easy day of it -compared to Scott Douglas' at any rate. After Dou-glas was clobbered on the first lap he spent more time working on his Ford than out on the course. Not only was the body work crumpled, but the cage and chassis were seriously bent. Prac-tically everything needed work. He tried hard, and his crew kept working on it, but they timed out after three long laps. Meanwhile, Falkosky had one good lap, and then his gas pedal came off. He used zip ties to maneuver the throttle cable so he could get to a pit, and then spent a long time re-attaching his pedal. Once done he stepped back to admire his handiwork and realized he'd installed it upside down.

He com-pleted his required two laps, had no flats, lost some shock oil and had to re-charge the shocks, but otherwise had no problems. He was happy with the finish in the new truck. In the Sportsman class Dan Moore and Steven Arlia didn't manage to get a finish with their car. They didn't get back to the finish area to report what had happened, either. There were eight stock JeepSpeed cars, also required to run only three laps. It wasn't easy for chem. Two went out on the first lap, and another two dropped out on the second lap.

Alldredge went on to take the win, reporting that he'd had two flats in addition to that roll-over. He said there were "lots of rocks".

He said the seven inches of travel reminded him of the old cars he drove years ago, and that's why he was able to drive the Rhino. But he finished only seven minutes in front of Cory Sappington, whose wife, Jeanette, rode with him. Sappington's dad, Don, used to race in Class 1, and he passed away in January of 2005. Cory painted his Rhino in his dad's old colors to honor him. Neither of the teams had any problems during their one lap trip. In fact, they seemed to have had a lot of fun. SNORE RACE.

Dan Folts and Brian Burgess had a near perfect day in their Seagroves chassis 1600 car, and · drove away with the overall win for the SNORE segment of the Henderson 400. In the Trick Truck class, only Brian Collins had entered the SNORE race (he'd actually en-tered both), but his Chevrolet had a hard day and managed to complete only four of the re-quired five laps. There were eight Class 10 cars, on e of which , Jim Dizney and Scott Webster, was racing in both events. The early lead be-longed to J.C. Dean, with Mark and C.J. Hutchins running sec-ond, and T.J. Flores, in a Bunder-son, third. Richard Evans ran fourth on the first lap, and was just eight minutes behind the leader. The Hutchins car moved into the lead on the second lap, with Dean in second, about eight min-utes back now. Flores held his third spot and Corey Cook was fourth. But Hutchins didn't complete any more laps. On the third lap Flores was in front, with four minutes on Cook. C h ris Wright had taken over for Evans, and he was now third , as Dean dropped to fourth. Attrition hit again , and Dean and Cook got no more laps in. Nor did Brian Freemal who'd h ad a couple of lengthy laps. There were on ly three cars mov-ing now, and on Lap 4 Flores had the lead, Wright was second, and over an hour back Jim Dizney and Scott Webster ran third, dealing with elusive elec-trical problems in their Honda Jimco. Wright rolled his car, but it landed on its wheels and he car-ried on, earning a win for him-self and Evans. At the finish he said, "It was fun -it was long!" In second place it was Dizney and Webster, who managed podium finishes in both the SNORE and BITD events and in third after a three hour last lap, Flores and Kevin Soder, who drove th e fast loop. They'd hit a rock and needed welding, and then lost their trans in the infield, just be-fore the finish, and had to push it over the line. They were the fi. nal finishers.

Of the o ther three, Richard Blunk and John Pheagley went into the lead as Tom' and Tommy Bradley had some problems with their Chevy on their first lap. They were sec-ond, and Logan and Brandon Sims, racing for only the second time, were third, and had been nerfed into a hole and had to dig themselves out. Blunk and Pheagley had an-other good lap and solidified their lead, while the Sims broth-ers held second place, even though the Bradleys' second lap, much closer to normal, was a minute faster than theirs. Blunk and Pheagley, running very con-sistent times, held their lead through the third lap, but both the Sims and the Bradleys were closing up a bit. Blunk and Pheagley had a brake line problem, and one flat tire that cost them about 15 minutes, but otherwise drove steadily to the finish to take the win. The Sims brothers slowed on the last two laps, which were in the dark, but finished with sec-ond place. The Bradleys couldn't get their last lap completed. In the 1600 class there were 16 cars, one of which was racing in both events. A couple of them, both from old racing families, bombed out on the first lap. Cody Freeman broke his torsion housing, and Orio Cox was out for unknown reasons. In the sur-viving pack, the lead belonged to Kevin Graves in his Jimco. But he had only 11 seconds on Daniel Folts in his Seagroves Chassis. In third place it was Don Wall, and fourth belonged to Jeff Carr (who was also racing in the BITD event). Carr went into the lead on Lap 2, with Graves second, and now Ruben Rodriguez moved into third, while Folts dropped to fourth. There was an eight minute spread from first to fourth, so it was still a very tight race. Only one more had dropped out. Carr put Jeremy Harmon into the car for the run to the finish, and he held onto the lead, being about four minutes ahead of Folts and co-driver Brian Bur-gess. Rodriguez and his co-driver, Brad Maurer, were third about seven minutes further back, and Don Wall and Tom Bradley ran fourth another four min u tes down. One more car dropped out.

What's a birthday wish-a power failure and a habitual second place have in common? All three occurred at Prescott Rally 2005. And each happened to an Open 4WD com-petitor. But, before it was over a birthday wish did come true for rookie Blake Yoon and Amy BeberVanzo proved again that this second place and her second at Gorman was no fluke. And George Plsek's fast weekend ended with a battery/ alternator/ power failure after winning all four stages on Fri-day night. Let's begin the story with George Plsek's fast Lancer Evo. He and Jeff Burmeister set the fastest times overall on all of Friday's stages.

Buy Stage 9 he was second again and tied with Blake on Stage 10 for the top spot. Meanwhile Amy and her co-driver, A.

With co-driver John Dilton beside Blake making the calls, Leon Styles (Rally Champion) best explained John's contribu-tions, "I knew he could provide some additional 'in-car' coaching. I'd say it worked out pretty well." For the remainder of the rally, Amy couldn't take advantage of George's demise, she fell further back to a fine second in class, fourth overall. Dropping out with George on SS 11 was Chad Davies, taking the third position in class was Vic-tor with Doug Chernis following in fourth. For the POT class winners they only had to remember not to wind up the spring too tight and not lose the key. A smooth ride indeed for the new team of Keith Roper and Ray Peters in their '91 Mitsubishi Gallant VR4, a car that is Keith's daily driver and which has been also used as sweep for previous Prescott Rally events. If Keith found the go-ing tough consider a flat tire when the car was on the trailer as his only obstacle. Friday night's four stage wins set the precedent for Saturday's runaway triumph. While the Roper and Peters were making ground on the top five (Fri-day) and top three on Saturday, Chris Wilson gave chase in his reli-able Subaru Legacy to finish in the top ten both days. When Chris wasn't setting the second fastest stage time, Mike Moyer and Eric Olson (Mitsubishi Eclipse) broke through and took the runner-up spot from them on Saturday. Af-ter Roper and Wilson Friday's re-February 2006 George Pisek and Jeff Burmeister drove their Mitsubishi Evo to 1st overall, 1st WSRC Open 1st Open 4WD on the Friday run. Mike Whitman and Chrissie Beavis, Ford Escort Cosworth, were 2nd ala, 2nd WSRC on Friday but engine woes Saturday put them out of the running. maining field looked like this: Rob-ert Brinkhurst and Shea Burns, Nick and Brian Hudson, Mike Moyer and Scott Clark and Marie Boyd. With Keith (third place over-all) challenging the Open 2WD class winner Cable Rhodes for sec-ond overall; just a scant four sec-onds separated them on the final results, he established his high point of the rally "We came out of Lime-stone Canyon with fastest stage time and I just could not believe we had done it. What was better than that was we got to perform in front of good friends and associates of this sport." But the show wasn't all up front on Saturday, jockeying for third, fourth and fifth place posi-tions were Brinkhurst, Moyer and Hudson. Before Brinkhurst suc-cumbed to problems on Perkinsville (SS9), the margin between any one of them at any time was no more than a minute. Moyer prevailed, holding off the Hudson's hot pur-suit, taking the third spot by just two seconds ahead of them. Scott Clark and Marie Boyd rounded out the field, finishing fifth on Sat-urday. Usually, in Club Rally events Friday's leader board will be a good indication of what the final results will look like on Saturday. With the case of the Friday Open 2WD class battle, the results showed a few sur-prises, with Brian Scott and Ken Cassidy (Ford Focus SVT) taking the win, holding off a charging Jeff Rados and Guido Hamacher (Ford Ranger). According to my calcula-tions Roger Hull and Sean Gallagher (Plymouth Laser RS) fin-ished in the second spot but road penalties (unstated) I assume, set them back to the third position. Like I said earlier, the one or two surprises that did· occur knocked our leader (Cable Rhodes) back far enough to slow him down but not to finish him off. He walloped the co-drivers door on First View North (SS 1) with Lisa Lee on board in his TOMCAT Subaru WRX STi but managed to finish the night in eighth place. Fourth place went to Rem and Pamela Wyatt, VW Golf, whose best place of the night was a third on Witty Tom South. Sadly, they dropped out after Perkinsville stage (SS9) on Saturday succumbing to clutch or transmission failure. Jon Rood and Tim Hayosh took the fifth position, beating Marco Pasten to the line by one second. Trailing Marco in sev-enth place was the team of Lars Brian Scott and Ken Cassidy drove the Ford Focus SVT, a Group 2 win in WSRC, 1st Open 2WD on Friday and 9th overall on Saturday. Dusty Times

The racing format was the same as last year, each class would run a two hour race, all contestants on the course at the same time, each contestant was required to stop twice for a mandatory tire change, most just jacked up the car, removed a front tire and put it right back on again and then back into ac-tion. If you needed fuel, that would be the time to top off and keep your stops down to the mandatory two times.

Jimmy Fishback III got some racing in but didn't have the best of days, he only got in 191apsofracingandheactuallyended up finishing 12th overall. In Class 1300 there was only one entry, the team of Rick and Troy Waszkiewicz, but they didn't start the race and were not scored. In Class 7 there were two loonies, Rex Racer and Loco Jodes who were there to have a good time, and they did, they took the class win with all sorts of time to spare and they fin-ished 11th in the overall standings as well. Second place finish in the Class 7 contest was the Jack Mitman/Philo Mitman duo, they were a few laps down from the class leader but they did take home the silver medal. The bronze medal went to Biker Sherlock, he too was down a few laps from the class leaders but still had a good time. Class 7S only had two entries but there was no contest, Brian Canon got in 11 laps and he was the class winner, Kathy Fay and Diego Lopes were scheduled to race but they never started their stint. In the Class 5 race it was Ken Schertzer taking the win, he put 19 laps on his car and was quite pleased with his gold medal and his 13th over-all finishing position. Anthony Bur-ton and Jason Bolinas gave chase but they had to settle for the second spot and 15th overall. Todd and Scott Stemmerman were scheduled to run but they never got to the green flag. It was lonesome in Class 5-1600, Jonathan Moreno and Trey Kadow made it a great day, they got 19 laps under their belts before the checkers flew and finished a wonderful 10th overall. There was only one entry in the Pre-runner class, the team ofW.J. Bradbury and Ethan Bradbury. They had a pretty good day they got 18 laps to their credit, took the class win and showed up on the results as the 14th overall finisher. Class 14 saw J.J. Hansen taking home the gold medal, he got in 20 laps and was in the ninth overall posi-tion when the checkered flag was waved. Second in Class 14 was Carl Anderson, Carl only got in 11 laps and was 19th overall at the end. Last, but certainly not least was the Class 14 team of Mike De Felice and Bob Bescot. They had major troubles and 1 only got in two laps but were still cred-ited with a third place in class,. So it ended, chalk up another race day at Glen Helen, good weather, fun racing and what more can one ask? Set aside December 9, 2006 for a two hour run at Glen Helen, the third annual Baja Cup Challenge. Hope to see ya all there! .. -#1 % Dusty Times

central, Do You copy? By Judy Smith BFGoodrich Tires has been such an integral part of the sport of off road racing for so long now, that some aspects of their involve-ment seem overlooked. Everyone knows they've devel-oped tires that work wonders for the racers, and most folks know about their terrific pit support sys-tem. But, there's also a super-effi-cient radio team, keeping track of the racers. We thought it'd be en-lightening to follow them through their chores as they gathered in-formation at a Baja 1000. To do that meant sitting in their midst and taking notes, but of course, occasionally, we had to hustle out and tend to our own business, so this narrative is a little spotty. So be it -you 'II get the idea. BFG Central is housed in Dave Walter's motorhome, which takes a beating during one of these events. He has radios, computers, satellite phones, a printer, stacks of clipboards, mountains of pa-per and various and sundry other bits and pieces of equipment. The roof bristles with antennas. The coffee pot is always working. And so -it seems - is the bathroom. Always a part of the team, and also headquartered in Walter's motorhome, is Brad Molinari, a stand-in for one of Santa's elves in appearance, with the personality to match, Brad does everything, cheerfully. For this year's 1000 Page 24 they brought along Brad's wife, Casy, knowing that the hours would be long and extra help would be needed. The day before the race Brad and Dave checked everything out. They made arrangements with a Mexican firm for wireless internet, they got their antennas fine tuned, made sure they had everything, and settled in for the duration. On race morning they parked alongside the start ramp, and got everything set up. Brad climbed on top and lined up the antennas, made sure all connections were good, and inside, Dave tested various phones, computers and printers. Mean-while, teams of radio people were spreading out on the race course. These folks, according to Dave, "are a special breed who always have microphones in their hands and like the challenge of the back country either by four wheeling, donkey-burro riding or airplane. They really enjoy helping the rac-ing community and if they happen to help save one life during their career, then putting up with all the hardships is worthwhile (they all have)." Sam Wilshire was at Alamo, Rick and Nancy Levias were the Borrego team, Izzie was at Chanate, Jack Sypolt at San Telmo and Steve Williams was Llano Colorado communications. In be-tween the Pit radios there were re-lays whose job would be to pro-vide contact between race and chase vehicles all over the course and to pass messages from chase crew to race vehicles. The relays were Bob Hynes and Dave Gerber who covered the start to Nuevo Junction, and then Uruapan to the finish, Tony Steingraber who covered Nuevo Junction to Borrego, Bruce Erickson, who cov-ered Matomi Wash to Laguna Diablo, Wild Bill Wiederhold, who covered Borrego Junction, San Felipe and San Matias to San Vicente, and Win Deen who ser-viced San Vicente to Santo Tomas. It would be difficult for a racer or chase crew to slip through the cracks. In addition to all those sta-tionary people, were Frank DeAngelo and Jeff Cummings, both on the highway, moving from pit to pit, and checking in from time to time with questions or in-formation. At 7:50 a.m. on race morning they are concerned about finding time to read out a list of changed frequencies. They want to be sure that all the radio people have the right radio frequencies for the race tams, but for some reason there have been over 70 changes. It'll take a long time to read off all those numbers and get the data to every pit. At the same time Dave's wor-rying about the frequency changes, he's looking for a 256 OPS chip with a lot of files on that's been February 2006 misplaced. He particularly needs one of the files. By 8: 12 a.m. Dave W. is already talking to his com-puter, which won't send a message for him. And Doug , is calling himself names, and is also dealing with a computer. They're planning an 8:30 radio check, and after that they'll do "adds, deletes and num-ber changes", and when that's all done, they'll deal with the fre-quency changes. At 8:30 a.m., Frank DeAngelo runs the status check with all the pits. Pit 3 can't respond for some reason, and pit 5 hasn't arrived yet. At 8:40 Doug starts the fre-quency changes. Frank's getting ready to take off, and he's handed them a list of changes to the fuel-ing instructions to send. When the cars start at 9:30, Brad inputs each vehicle number and the time at which it takes the green flag. And Lin Macleod writes down every car number and a brief description of its color and any graphics that might help iden-tify it if for some reason its num-ber isn't visible to the pit people as it races past. Casy has hustled over to the motorhome of Dave and Sandy Churchill, parked nearby, to gather up some breakfast. The Churchills are doing hospitality for BFG this race, because many important people are in Baja to observe the 30th anniversary of BFG's involvement in the sport, and to celebrate the 20th consecu-tive overall car/ truck win (if it hap-pens). They are busy for the duration of the long start process, it's in-tense: they don't want any errors. By 12:40 p.m. the start line is closing. Brad climbs up topside and takes down all the antennas, and they head out to the baseball park. Once there, Brad climbs back up and sets up all the equipment again. Some things have to be aimed just so. It needs precision and know-how. Inside the motorhome, early reports are com-ing in already. Casy, Sandy or Lin write down the numbers and times as they are called. When one per-son is writing down passing times, another is often entering them at the same time, in the computer. This gives the team an up to date report of who's in front and how far they've gone. The pits also hear the reports and try to keep a record of them, so they'll know who is due in, or, conversely, who's no longer in the race. At 4:25 p.m. Casy is reading numbers to Sandy, who puts them into the computer, while Lin, ear-phones on, takes reports from the radio people at the pits. Mean-while, just outside the motorhomes a big tractor is build-ing the finish-line ramp, and mak-ing a horrendous amount of noise. One of the pits report that they're having sat phone problems. That's not too unusual. At 4:45 Frank is asking for the lead cars. Ragland, Shepard and Herbst are through Chanate already. Now the hunt starts to find the BFG Winners' hats, which were put in Dave's underbelly storage area. There's a lot of bustling around while they search. Ellen, with Wild Bill, calls in a query about Page 13 of the BFG map book, wanting to know if the note Dusty Times

Page 25

about access at RM 443/K 140 is correct. Jeff, somewhere on the road in the Bronco, replies that it is still true,. Alamo reports another five ve-hicles through by 4:48 p.m., and they're already seeing Sportsman trucks, a Class 11 and some late Class 10s. Alamo is Mile 83 on the race course. Now Casy is inputting the numbers and times, and Sandy is outside setting up the "refresh-ment" area for the BFG folks who are expected to wander in and out of the area. At 4:58 a report comes in that Trophy Truck #83 (Robby Gordon) has a problem with a col-lapsed rear suspension, and his tires are rubbing. Dave and John Howard are still trying to find the Winners' hats. A report comes in that 1011 is on a trailer, and would Central please let their pit know. Chanate reports that on corrected time 105 leads -that's Herbst and Roeseler. By 5 p.m. the ramp leading into the ball field and down to the checkered flag is finally finished. Quiet descends. At 5: 17 a query comes in from someone looking for #17 at Alamo. Dave W. calls Alamo to let them know that ac-cording to the records there are still about five BFG cars expected to go through the their pit. He doesn't want them to close before the cars get there. Alamo is still querying about #17, but he's al-ready on the "out" list. Dave Churchill comes in, look-ing for a "Y" connection, and a guy at the motorhome door wants to know if they're posting "results" somewhere. Dave tells him how to find them on the website. Lin is trying to track down a report that car #1101 went through Borrego many hours earlier than a Class 11 could. It seems that someone must have inverted the numbers when calling them in. Alamo re-ports some stragglers, and Sam is also trying to sort out some confu-sion between 1606, 1646 and 1620. Oscar Ramos, SCORE's attor-ney, is at the door trying to talk to Dave W. He says Sal wants some information to post. Dave W. tells Sal where the lead bikes are. A Rally Track person comes in, look-ing for good, accurate start list. Dave W. tells him to go to Jim Russell (timing and scoring) for an official list. Borrego insists that #1101 went through. Dave W. took it off the list: it's not possible. Then 1707 pops up on the computer as hav-ing reached Borrego with a time of 16 minutes. That's an input er-ror -they quickly fix it. Chanate calls in a list of passing vehicles. One is a vehicle with body parts missing; they "can't tell if it's a truck or a buggy." They say they think it says "Pro Comp" on the side. The consensus is that it's Marty Coyne's #5 Trophy Truck, and Lin checks her list of descrip-tions to verify. It is Coyne. There's a question from one pit. Car #104 passed through at 5:01:54, then had trouble and came back to the pit. Should they give us the time he leaves on his second out? Dominic Clark, SCORE's PR person came in looking for a print out. Dave W. prints him a list. He also tells h im to ch eck, where he's post-ing times. Brad comes in to give Casy a break from inputting numbers. Frank is on the radio, confirming that the truck with no body pan-Dusty Times els is Coyne. Chanate wants a list of the cars through Borrego, with their times, so they know whom to expect, and when. Lin reads the list to them. At 6 p.m. Alamo is about to close and three cars have still not got there. A chase crew radios look-ing for information on # 17. Brad tells him the truck is out of the race. The chase guy wants infor-mation about his location relayed to somewhere. By 6:07 p.m. the Alamo pit is closed. Frank tells them "thanks". The chase crew for #557 calls in looking for information. He's told it's through Alamo. Dave W. is checking with SCORE Ops to be sure the Check Point closing times haven't been changed. Chanate is reporting passing cars about six at a time. Llano Colorado reports that the first two bikes on the road have gone through at approximately 5:49 p.m. Dave W. is agitated about this. He decides his estimate of the ap-proximate finish time is off by a half hour. We'll have finishers in earlier than expected. He's worried about how the bikes picked up so much time. Someone's at the window look-ing for information. And there's a radio report that car # 16 is look-ing for an alternator. A long "Out List" has been put together, and Dave W. reads it to the pits so that no one will sit around waiting for one of them to show up later in the evening. Chanate reports a pos-sible roll-over at Matomi. The re-lays will "handle" the communica-tions. At 7:05 SCORE Ops call in to find out where the first Trophy Truck is on the course. Dominic comes in to get the same informa-tion. Llano Colorado needs the "Out" list so Casy reads it to them. Brad is entering times into the computer and Doug is looking for Dave C. 's camera. Dave W. is dig-ging out a table cloth for the "en-tertainment" area. A message comes from Borrego asking Cen-tral to tell Frank that #863 has left, and Damien Michelin is aboard. Dave W. and Doug are rerout-ing wires and talking through the window at each other, radio re-ports are coming in at the same time. It's chaotic. Borrego is trying to call Frank to tell him that Michelin is aboard Hall's Hum-mer. A report comes in that# 1501 is bringing in parts for Trophy Truck #10. Dave W. and Doug are now shuffling cars around out in the parking area to make room for the BFG bigwigs who are expected to be coming in from out on the course. Dave W. is looking for a cable. They want to set up a speaker so people outside can hear the pit reports on passing race cars. At 7:30 Frank wants a report on the Michelin biker. San Telmo says he went through at 7: 15 p.m. Dave W. is on the radio asking Frank how much parking he'll need at the finish line for all the BFG folks. He needs space for four, and he'll be there in about an hour. At 7:40 p.m. only Casy and Lin are working. All the men are outdoors, wandering around, and browsing the snack table. Casy makes a new pot of coffee, and the loud music fires up on the other side of the field. The first bike has gone through Tres Her-manos, which means he's about 50 miles out. The two Daves and Doug are distracted by the logistics of get-ting the BFG special guests into the start/finish area. By now Dave W. has set things up so Dominic can use the internet to get the lists as fast as the BFG team puts them in the computer. In a quiet moment Dave W. and I record the tire changes. This means I read from the "tire count" list and Dave puts into the records which tires each car started the race on. We record any who've switched brands, and those who have no stickers on their car. Chanate called in with a "tech-nical question about rules", in-spired by a car that went through, then turned around and went back to its pit, and then left again. The BFG folks are coming in now, and one reports that it cost him $4 and two BFG hats to get a parking place. He thought it was a good price. Suddenly, at 8:35, there are 10 people in the motorhome. DeAngelo arrives a few minutes later. Reports are coming in from the pits steadily, and Casy, Lin and Brad take turns writing them down and/ or entering them. Dave W. sets up his computer so we can watch the progress of all the Baja Challenge cars, which have some special OPS sending devices on them,. On the screen, which shows a map of the course against the background of a map of Baja, little symbols creep around the trail. It's fascinating. Charlie Engelhart comes in to find out how far out the lead bik-ers are. He's told they'll be there in about an hour. A guy with a video camera is videoing the com-puter with the Baja Challenge car symbols moving along. A man came to the door looking for Tro-phy Truck #71. He's told it went through Mile 85 at 5 o'clock. By 9:30 Dave W. is muttering, Relay 8 is asking for status on # 1604 and Casy is trying to sort out why# 1611 seems to have gone thru Borrego twice. They decide that the first entry should have read #111. Nancy, at Borrego, is having trouble with her radio, needs someone to tell her why. Bob Hynes came on to tell her what to do. Another person pops in to look for word on the Herbst ve-hicles. Ellen calls in to check on the brand of tires on a couple of cars - they weren't on BFGs. Llano Colorado reports that #80, Shepard, has gone through, at 9:43. Frank has a lot of infor-mation about what's been going on out on the course, and he fills us in. Reports are coming in from San Telmo and Llano Colorado now, in addition to all the other pits. At 10:4 2 motorcycle #6X fin-ished the race. Relay 8 reports that #105 went-past him at 10:50. That's Roeseler and Herbst and they're the first truck on the road. There's been a steady trickle of re-ports about# 1205 and their steer-ing problem. At 11:05 we hear that their steering is fixed, but now they have no motor. Reports are coming in steadily, and Dave W. is hustling, trying to get all the pre-midnight times into the computer before midnight so he doesn't have to do some complicated thing with changing the time. We get a report that Aggie, the BFG man on the spot who's been helping racers out of tight spots for years, is broken and limping out of Matomi. Dave W. has called one of the relay people who's near the Pine Forest, and asked them to give us the time difference be-tween the first and second truck to go past him. Reports are coming in from Chanate, San Telmo, Borrego, and Llano Colorado. Some folks show up looking for word on Robby Gordon. Dominic stops by to see who's ·due and when. Sal Fish hasn't been around, he's sick and his crew packed him off to bed. At about 12:30 everyone who can, goes outside to await the first ve-hicle. Owen Sciano, BFG Brand Manager made an address to the spectators, thanking the Baja com-munity for their hospitality. Troy Herbst shows up - nervous and jit-tery - Roeseler should be in soon, but you never know. He arrived right on time, giving BFG their 20th consecutive overall car/truck win. At this point, I become very busy, as does the BFG Central team, but I can't see what they're doing when I'm outside talking to finishers. They're now recording car numbers and finish times along with everything else. About 2: 10 a.m . I went back to the motorhome to see what was going on, but it was so full of BFG bod-ies I couldn't get in. At 4:41 a.m. I go back in and find Sandy and Casy on the radios, Brad snoozing on the couch and Dave W,. and Frank stewing over the computer. I see that Dave and Frank are watching the progress of Scott Steinberger on the computer screen, somehow getting the data from the Rally Logger. Chanate calls in a list of cars that haven't gone by. I return at about 5:55 and find Dave C., Sandy, Frank and John Howard in the motorhome. A whole string of cars finish now that it's daylight again, and I don't get back to the motorhome until 8 a.m. Casy, Sandy and Doug are Continued on page 54 0 p:r·/.MA "llt!WIIMr&JloWDSOllace• ZTREME TIRE co.

A nice second place finish in Trophy Challenge went to Gene Wilson, he ended up six minutes behind the leader. Guy Savedra drove as hard as he could but this race the best he could muster was a third place finish in Class 5-1600. Noe Sierra was a bit off the winning pace at Barstow, he ended up in an unaccustomed third place in Class 7A. Perry Fleming was the Class 7A winner, he had more than half an hour in hand when he took the checkered flag. 'fun time' when they passed Lee Patten in # 107 on the last lap. # 107 finished the race in 4:24:59. Drivers John Gould and Greg Leone, and co-driver Chris Eimer, drove their LS 1-powered Playtech ride to third place in Class 1, in 4:25:05. A very close third indeed, especially consid-ering that they ... "had no clutch since the beginning of the race." Coming in fourth in Class 1 in 4:26:54 was the LSl-powered # 119 Motion Tire car of Ron Brant. Along with co-driver Ben Monroy, Ron drive the second heat race, while Richard and Dennis Boyle shared the in-cab duties for the first heat. Ron re-ported having a bit of a fuel problem on the A2 course, but otherwise said the race was "flawless ... no flats, and a finish too." That is a pretty good race day in anybody's book. On the other hand, Tim Lindsey and wife Diana reported a broken brake caliper on Lap 3 with their Chevy V6-powered Chenowth chassis, bµt the #171 Performance electric car still managed a respectable time of 5:29:31, and a fifth place in class finish. Tim Lindsey drove solo the first heat, when co-driver Jer-emy Lindsey jumped in for the second heat race. This was the Lindsey family's first finish in three tries, having just bought their new Class 1 car after previ-ously competing in Class 5-1600. : ______... iinEK IC:i.~~ ~~~■E:IVI~ Formerly Carrera Light Systems Smaller ize, tower weight, greater safety • Quick Adjust BIiiet Knobs -For tool-less rapid adjustments • TJg W.lded Chromoty Frame -for strer:l;th and durability • Ft Mounted• Vlbrdon lsolac.ct LamP9 - Eiminates tendency frii. the tamp to 18 out ol ad~sb'Mnt • Raoe Pro\len Optf - Focal points optimized for HIO or Halogen apptiQttfons • Lightweight • Single weighs 4 lbs. 4 oz.

Geoff soloed the entire race and reported a clean event, complet-ing his laps in 4:24:09. The #975 GetRDone Racing car of Michael Ward garnered eighth place, crossing the S/F line in 5:210:30. Michael drove the first race heat on Course A2 with co-driver Daniel Upson. With about 30 people in his pit crew for support, GetRDone Racing had no problems using the one hour break between heats to weld up a few breaks and miscellaneous parts in their car, prepping for the second round of racing of the day. Uncle John Ward and co-driver Robert Allen, took over the driver duties for the second race heat on Course Al. GetRDone Racing reported that each track was "about half rough and half fast", but they still "had a good day" and thought it was a "neat format". Norbert Moll in car #902 took ninth place in Class 9. This 52 year old rookie driver didn't finish the Baja 1000 in his car, borrowed a motor for this race, "didn't really do any prep work", and was stuck in second gear the whole race; but he did HAC/Nli 7/NCOHPOHATEO J{l;\'.'-_ The BB-1 TRANSMISSION ~ - , . c..,_,llAC/65 ~NCOllPOllATED 169 Gasoline Alley Suite 5 • Mooresville, NC 28117 704.799.0955 • 704.799.1191 fax Page 30 • Center Support -Stabilizes the input and counter sharts 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.

John Daly took over the driving du-ties for the second heat on Course A2. The Lucas Oil car performed flawlessly, thanks to the keen oversight of Butch Warden, Greg's pit crew coordinator. Greg reported that his 'highly modified' RaceCo chassis # 1249 "passed quite a few Class 9 cars, and got passed by a few Class 16's", but saw a lot of 'clean air' in between, too. Greg is an experienced and seasoned racer and says "Barstow is al-ways technical. You just have to know where 'the gotcha's' are and slow down", so they don't come back and bite you! Greg's win at the Holiday 200 also cinched him the M.O.R.E. 2005 Overall Class 21300 Sportsman Champion title too. Taking second place in class was Clint Fisher in car #1340 at 3:48:05. Clint and co-driver Rick Escott, soloed the entire race, but not without some ma-jor problems. Rick's 3.4L V6 Toyota powered, four seater Lothringer chassis buggy had fuel problems all day long, re-quiring them to pit three times during the first race heat and causing a late start on Race Heat 2. Clint also managed to break the steering ram off its frame mount and had some fun trying to navigate #1340 through the sand wash. But he still managed a finish, and a sec-ond place trophy to boot. Not too bad.

---B:, Mr. Baja Pits Welcome racers and fans alike. I can't believe the holi-days are over with and we are in 2006. We ended the year at the MOR race at Plaster City West. What a great race day, but full of wind and dust. We were with Darryl Varnado of Boulevard, co-owner Jeff Morrison from Boulevard and Mitch Sanchez of Campo (Score Class 30 Pro racers and new MOR buggy racers). Darryl's Class 10 car got fifth in class for that race. Way to go Darryl! Well, as promised I have the stories and stats of our racers from the 2005, Baja 100 race. It was a very exciting race to be in. A technical course, like we saw all year starting with the SF 250, then the Baja 500 and finishing up with the Baja 1000. With the advent of the new Rally Loggers being re-quired for all Pro classes, I see a time when checkpoints and secret checks will disappear for good. Maybe not this year, but one day soon. Baja Pits ran 11 pits with Pits 1 and 11 being a double pit at Tres Hermanos turn off. The pit captains were as fol-lows: Pit # 1 and # 11 was 20 year veteran Pep Lozano. Pit #2 was run by Locos Mocos, the Crazy Boogers. They are fantastic to watch in action if you can ever be near them. Thanks guys for being in the middle of nowhere again. Pit #3 was run by 10 year veteran Manual Moralez. Pit #4 was co-run by Tom Minga and Doug Naylor. I'm sure during their spare time, Tom was looking for snakes and Doug was. telling Firehouse stories. Congratulations on retiring from Alpine FD this year Doug. Pit #5 was run by newbie to Baja Pits, Stephan Stenberg. He only has 1.2 years with Baja Pits. He runs our motorcycle and quad op-erations. Pit #6 was run by 30+ year veteran of Baja, Leo Calderon. He raced the Baja 1000 for the first time back in 1967. The stories this guy can tell you from back then are amazing. Pit #7 was run by a 10 year veteran, Nacho Gonzales. Pit #8 was co-ran by 20 year veterans Silvio Tamriz and Mario Orozco (no relation to President Carlos Orozco). And last but not least, Pit # 10 was run by 20 year veteran Mike Escalante. So you can see, there was a lot of racing experience running our 11 pit stops. Baja Pits had 36 race teams signed up for service for this race. Of those, 11 were bike and quad teams. The remain-der were guys in 13 different Pro and Sportsman vehicle classes. This race, like all Baja KING Page 48 OFF-ROAD itfiCING SttOCl<S 1000s, took its toll on many vehicle and bike teams alike. Baja Pits USA had five class winners! Way to go guys! I will list our racers now and how they did by number, name, class position and overall. Starting in Class 1/2-1600 we had #1642 (Lozano), #1644 (Wilson) and #1647 (Doran), third place.

All the Class lls DNFd February 2006 and were ranked in the order of who made it the farthest. In Pro Trucks, #288 (Jim Nuckles), was first in class and 28th 0/ A. Way to go Jim, spanking the rest of your class that way! In Class 17, Jeep Speed, our lone entry #1501 (Cesena A.), was first in class and 163rd 0/ A as a DNF. In Class T (Sportsman Trucks) we had two racers who both DNFd. They are #1504 (Saiden), and #21549 (Bob Land). # 1504 forgot to pay us after the race, so we will be looking for him in 2006 to pay up for his race support and fuel. In Class B, Sports-man Buggy, we had $1403 (Rice), and #1405 (Robles), both DNF. For the motorcycles and quads we start with Class 25 Pro, ATVs> 251cc.

These two brothers come out from Colorado, don't pre-run and usually finish each race. A real pleasure to have in the pits. Way to go guys! Hope you got enough to eat at Pit #5 while your lights were be-ing adjusted? #276X (Ard), was a DNF in this class as well. In Class ATV Sportsman, it was #97 A (Mike Penland), first in class and 131st d/ A on his new yellow, 800cc Bom-bardier ride. Way to go Mike and good luck in 2006 with the GNCC series! He was sup-ported out here by John Brady, another Baja Pit guy and great friend to have. Next was #98A (Robins), third in class and 147th 0/ A. Round-ing the class up was #51A (Manthy), who was DNF. That's everyone. To those that took first place in class, congratulations to you and your teammates! You defi-nitely earned it this race. For those of you who finished, this was one tough race for sure. And for those of you who DNFd, keep racing, be-cause 2006 is a new year for you. Baja Pits is here to help you finish and win. You are the racer and we are the race team who pits you. We are one big family committed to helping each other out.

STATE OHV BOARD SLASHES FUNDS FOR EDU-CATION, LAW ENFORCE-MENT AND TRAIL MAIN-TENANCE - GROUPS CALL FOR DISBANDMENT SAC-RAMENTO (Dec. 15) -On De-cember 14, a coalition of 14 na-tional, state, and local OHV rec-reation groups called for the dis-bandment of the California State Parks Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Commission. California regula-tions mandate that funds col-lected from OHV registrations go for environmental education, law enforcement, public safety, trail conservation and land ac-quisition programs. Spokesmen for the coalition said the deci-sion to call for the disbandment came after the Commission voted to defund several important en-forcement and safety programs, operated by the U.S. Forest Ser-vice, Bureau of Land Manage-ment, and local sheriff depart-ments. John Stewart, Director of En-vironmental Affairs for the United Four Wheel Drive Asso-ciations said actions taken at a December $ Commission meet-Dusty Times ing were identical to problems identified in an Audit conducted by the California Bureau of State Audits earlier this year. "The OHMVR Commission is bla-tantly continuing irregularities identified in the Audit. There is no longer any accountability. The only option left is to call for its disbandment." Don Amador, western representative· for the Blue Ribbon Coalition noted that calling for disbandment of the OHV Commission was the last resort. "The refusal to fund important safety and education program shows the Commission no longer functions in accor-dance to the California law which established the committee. We call, once again, for oversight from the legislature. The decision to de-fund the off-highway vehicle (OHV) oriented law enforcement responsibilities of many county sheriffs' depart-ments and federal agencies is shameful," Amador added. Earlier this year, the same coalition sent a letter to Sena-tor Bill Morrow (R-Oceanside) asking for legislative hearings by the joint Legislative Audit Com-mittee based on a recent report by the Bureau of State Audits critical of the OHMVR Program. That audit cited irregularities within the grants program that were again evident during the re-cent commission hearing. "The Commission should consider this a vote of no confi-dence by the OHV community," Amador concludes. "We pay taxes and registration fees and those funds should be used for trail maintenance, law enforce-ment, and safety education, not purchasing greenbelts or other real-estate schemes." The groups signing the Sep-tember$ letter to Senator Mor-row include: American Sand As-sociation, OffRoad Business As-sociation, San Diego Off-Road Coalition, American Motorcy-clist Association, American Mo-torcyclist Association -District 36, American Motorcyclist Asso-ciation District 37, BlueRibbon Coalition, Califor-nia Association of Four-Wheel Drive Clubs, California/Nevada Snowmobile Association, Cali-fornia Off-Road Vehicle Asso-ciation, Desert Vipers Motor-cycle Club, Duners, American Motorcyclist Association District 37 Dual Sport, and United Four Wheel Drive Associations.

Billy Robertson took second overall and second in the Open Buggy class, having no problems at all. And only stopping once to give his co-driver some seat time. Nice clean run, Billy! Dan Martin pressed his leading Club race car whore status by rolling a guy's 1/2-1600 car, but the team still brought it home with a good fourth place. Stuart Chase's 1/2-1600 car, with his son at the wheel, came across the finish in eighth. Good show, guys! B.J. Bates raced a 5-1600 buggy for a lap and a half before he blew up the tranny for his DNF. The Valasco's first out-ing in their new 10 car saw Art Jr, have shifter and carb mount problems the first half of the race ... then Pops got in behind the wheel and blew it up in three miles. This race consisted of four 45 mile loops, with about 107 entries. Er Jahn was Pit Captain at the Main Pit, with Big John Files establishing Checker Pit # 1. ANNUAL AWARDS BANQUET -When this col-umn was written and had to be sent in, the Awards Din-ner hadn't even taken place yet .. but here are the guys February 2006 who were honored on that night. How do I know who, you ask? ... well, I got good connections, Dudes! Our 2005 Appreciation Awards were presented to Jeff Hibbard for President, Roy Moore for Vice Prez, George Thompson for Treasurer, Jim Gregory for Secretary, Steve Luport for Equipment Man-ager, and George Seeley for Equipment Custodian. No matter how much shit ya took during your year of service, Guys, your time and effort was well appreciated. The following men were recognized for their perfor-mance achievements: Greg Krasnow earned 'Pitter of the Year' honors. In a very close call, Ed Jahn was honored as 'Pit Captain of the Year' in only his second year in the Club. Rookie Driver of the Year was an easy call with the recent addition to the Club of Andrew Neal. And, the Checker Driver of the Year was Rich 'Stretch' Serverson from Arizona. He had a num-ber of impressive races in 2005, and earned his second straight SCORE Points Championship in Class 7SX. Congratulations to all for their standout performance during the year. Two special awards were presented this year for two Checker's significant contri-bution to the Club. George Thompson was named 'Checker of the Year'. Elected as the Club's Treasurer, and despite recently suffering a mini-stroke, GRT jumped right in and served the Club in so many ways in 2005. As 'Manager' of Team HUM-MER, George has learned so many skills over his years in that position which he could immediately apply in his newly elected position with the Checkers. He knows how to raise money. He knows how to manage it. And, he knows how to spend it wisely. He is an expert with a computer, and the Club has never had any better Club race maps than they did this year. New T-shirts ... he handled them. The Off Road Expo, he pretty much ran the 'show' floor for the new owners ... and US! George was soooo much more than just a Trea-surer for the Checkers in 2005. A Life Time Achievement Award. Only two Checkers have ever received this award, Uncle Max in the late 80's, and now Reverend Roy Moore in 2005. Max earned his by bleeding Checker black and white from way back in the beginning.

Several members rang in the New Year with their families out in the desert near Slash X, braving the windy and rainy weather. The festivities included riding mo-torcycles and quads, driving pre-runners and race cars, shooting off model rockets, sac-rificing a couple of Christmas trees in the hon fire, and just having a great time. The first race of the year for FAIR members will be the SCORE Laughlin Desert Chal-lenge on January 12th thru the 15th. FAIR will also be offering support this year to members racing in the SCORE series, the MORE series, and any other Dusty Times

race that has at least five FAIR members entered to race. FAIR wishes to remind all members that membership fees are due at the beginning of each year. Membership dues for 2006 are $50.00 per member. Racing fees have increased this year from $50.00 to $75.00 per race. The schedule for FAIR races and meetings will be up-dated and posted on the web site, in the very near future. FAIR MEMBER HIGH-LIGHT: FAIR member Giti Gowland had a busy year in 2005. He and· his team, which includes his wffe, Andrea "Stretch" Gowland, and co-driver, Jeff Zimmerman, ran in 14 races during the year. They had seven wins, five second place finishes, one sixth place completion, and two DNF endings. With these results, they were the 2005 MORE class champions, the sec-ond place MOR Cal Series Points finishes, and won the sea-son finale to become the MOR Superstition Series champions. One of the most exciting races for Giti and his team in 2005, was the MOR Outlaw 250, in which they beat Lee Orr and his team by a marginal one second. Giti began the race just 17 sec-onds in front of Lee Orr, and by the end of the second lap had broadened that lead to almost three minutes. Both cars pitted at this point for gas and water, and when they started out again Lee was really stepping it up and applying the pressure to Giti. By the end of the third lap, Giti's lead had decreased to just one minute over Lee. Giti, having sustained a blown seal to his front, left shock absorber in the first lap, was now beginning to feel the effects cif this as he tried to hold the trembling Jeep to-gether to win this race. During the last lap, Lee Orr was doing · everything he could to pass Giti, and Giti was doing everything he could to stay out in front. Giti tried to loose Lee in his dust as they passed a pack of slower cars, but Lee held on and stayed right with him. Giti then ran up on a berm and the Jeep "bi-cycled" on two wheels for ap-proximately 100 feet before Giti could recover control, all the while Lee tried to get by him. When Giti finally crossed the finish line he estimated he was only 14 seconds ahead of Lee Orr, not enough for the victory. Giti received a very pleasant · surprise when the official results were finally pos~d, he has won the race by a mere fraction of a second. Giti Gowland then be-came the winner of the closest race in MOR history. FAIR congratulates Giti Gowland and his crew for a fan-tastic year of racing n 2005. FAIR THANK YOU: A huge "thank you" goes out to Jennifer Clemison and Shelby Tolbei:t for all their hard work in making the Christmas party a huge success. They spend countless hours organizing the party, selling tickets to the party organizing the raffle, getting do-nations for raffle prizes, selling raffle tickets, and promoting the event. Thanks also go out to those who donated prizes for the raffle, and to all those who pur-chased tickets. FAIR NEW YEAR'S RESO-LUTION: 1. FAIR will offer the best pit support possible to all its mem-ber. 2. FAIR will do its best to keep the website up to date, so that those who visit will have ac-curate information on m~mber-ship status, the FAIR schedule, race results, racers' stories and FAIR news. An error was made in the last edition of the FAIR News. Jenni-fer Clemison was stated to be the Points Champion in Class in the MORE series. Jennifer's actual fi-nal points standing for MORE was third, and Rick Wilcoxson was the Points Champion for Class 1. The article was completed before MORE had finished up-dating the standings on their website. I apologize for this error.

.. Formed in 1994 with the specific desire to return stage rallying to the state of Or-egon, the ORO has grown sig-nificantly to now hosting one of the most popular national events on the Rally America National Championship with drivers. We have expanded to a regional stage rally in Odell, Oregon at the base of Mt. Hood, next year we are look-ing to expand into Central Oregon and southwest Wash-ington. In rallycross we organize between six and eight events per year utilizing sites throughout the Portland area including Portland In-ternational Raceway. In Oregon we are lucky to have several of the most ac-complished and respected road rally competitors in the country. Our road rally program includes several National events per year, the popular Gran Prix Im-ports Port Oxford Rally, and several regional events. We road rally on both paved and gravel roads. Ironically as we begin this new relationship with Dusty Times we find our season winding down for the rainy winter months. By the time this gets to your mailbox our final rallycross event of the year will be in the books and new champions for 2005 will be awarded. A severe blow to stage rally competitors came in early October as our Mt. Hood Rally was cancelled due to a lawsuit against the National Forest Service. Page 52 Bad news is we lost a good event this y.ear, however the good news is the staff at the Forest Service office does not believe the lawsuit will hold up and we are looking forward to next year. Orga-nizer Simon Levear always does an immaculate job bringing this rally to life and we look forward to the 2006 edition. For more information about rallying in our neck of the world please use our website VORRA is pleased to an-nounce that Team LeDuc will be racing at the first short course event of the 2006 sea-son. Curt LeDuc, the team leader, has confirmed plans to travel north to Sacra-mento for VORRA's March 4-5, 2005 race at Prairie City SVRA. Prairie City is one of only a few year round short course off road facilities on the west coast. The track has been widened and redesigned to cater to the fastest short course vehicles.

From Page 47 Ron by surprise, and the ensu-ing bounce broke one of his rear shocks, causing the coils to depart the car, and ending Ron's race. Jeff Bracale races out of Lake Havasu City, Arizona and had a solid race in his Ford Lightning Class 8 machine. Jeff was looking to wrap up the season points and he did so in style. Jeff got three laps done in 3:06:25 to earn the class vic-tory. Bruce Bonestroo had a good run going until a very long fifth and final lap cost him a shot at the win. Bruce settled with the silver medal in the class. David Weir ran a steady pace to earn the bronze medal, and was the final fin-isher in the class. Mike Doherty was hoping for a good race, but ended up spending some quality time in the desert. Mike had tie rod trouble, followed by a broken steering arm on the same spindle. His champion-ship points chase fell short this year. Benny Fenn also had troubles, with a broken link in the rear end, w'ith no means of a field fix. · Jeff Knupp continued to roll over the competition in the 1600 class. Jeff had a pretty solid day, with one quick stop for some cholla removal. Jeff was able to garner second overall, and a class win with 2:54:20. Ryan Chamberlin was putting up some pretty quick laps of his own early in the race, but slowed on the last couple laps due to an ailing co-driver. Ryan ended up letting the passenger out of the car, and made the mistake of going on solo. That's a no-no in a two seat car, and earned Ryan a DQ for his troubles. Keep an eye on this kid. Ryan has only • a couple races under his belt in the 1600, and is already demonstrating veteran-like skills in the class. Krissy Sullivan showed some determi-nation at this race, finishing all of her laps, and taking the checkered flag well after dark. Krissy had a solid race after s'ome early steering troubles, and got a well deserved finish. Stan "the Man" Calvelage was on fire in the Sport 10 cla~s. Stan beat eight other competitors to the checkers with about 14 minutes to spare. Look for Stan to team up with nephew Cod:-.,. Calvelage next year, to be a force in Sport 10. Runner-up Mark Fiske was leading on time when a very long third lap relegated him to second place in the class. Bruce Johnston had a solid outing, getting the final podium posi-tion in the class. Bruce had co-driver, and head chef Brian riding shotgun for the race. Bruce has finally gottep the bugs worked out of his dual port powerplant, and is enjoy-ing Sport 10. David Blythe, the Asher Mask Racing Team, and Hector Cortez all finished their assigned laps to earn well deserved finishes. Scott Cybulski was running very well until a last lap DNF got him. Brandon Nelson had a trouble free run in his# 1503 truck in the Sport Truck class. Brandon was the only competi-tor in the class to finish all four required laps. Brandon did have the truck quit in the last mi.le to give him some heart palpitations, but the truck re-fired, and he took the check-ers. Brandon wanted to thank MCM Motorsports for their support., Todd P. whose name I can never pronounce, and Don at The Transmission Shop. Cory Bott was the lone fin-isher in the Sportsman Limited class. Cory had a very enthusi-astic co-driver who finished the bike race, and then jumped in the car to co-drive. Cory gave him a good show, but had to make multiple 10-100 stops for the hydrating rider. In the Sport Mini class, Ruben Frederico again came out on top, with Cody Calvelage, and the Lucas Team not far behind. Congratulations to the win-ners, and to the class champi-ons for 2005. The Sonoyta ex-perience was interesting, and hats off to the racers, campers and families who endured the silt and the dust to support their teams, and the Whiplash family. As of this writing, the 2006 calendar has not been announced. Look for Whip-lash to continue to provide quality, family style races in the New Year, hopefully with some improvements to the Mexican content on the schedule.

CODE Race Ready 275 ••• FromPage43 a time of 9:09:43, second Lugo went to Ramon Fernandez with a 9:27:48. The third spot went to Rene Rodriguez with a 10: 11 :03 and Enrique Gonzales was the fourth place and only other class finisher with his time of 11:12:59. In the Sportsman class we had the 14s, 15s, 18s and two Safari classes. The Class 14 win was taken by Jose L. and Fernando Sanchez in with a very quick 6:02:39. Celio Perez, Ramon Ceja and Jorge Jimenez were just nine minutes back for second with their 6:09:44 and another hour back Ivan Pacheco and Edgar Alvarez, Jr. with their time of 7:08:21. The 14 class was another large field consisting of 22 starters and 10 finish-ers. The CODE races just get larger and larger. Thirteen starters in the 15 class but only four of them made the entire trip. First across the finish line was Marco An-tonio Marquez with an 8:25:50. Carlos and Rolando De Los Palos were second into San Felipe with their time of 9:37:50 and Everardo Garcia took third with his time of 10:48:42. Raul Valenzuela was the only other Class 15 finisher and his time was 11:21:19. Nine starters in Class 18 and only two of the teams made it to the black and white. The three man team of Sergio Sal-gado, Luis J. Salgado and Paloma Ayon went 8:42:11 for first place and Jorge Rivas took the silver with a time of 11:04:50. Abraham Lartundo got to the fourth checkpoint and was awarded the bronze. The other six entries had various prob-lems and made it to and through only a couple of checkpoints. Here again one of them never even saw Check 1. And now onto the Safari classes. When CODE and RECORD combine to put on a race there are two Safari classes. They mostly run together but there is a small change to the numbering system. Anyway. Clase Safari RECORD had 14 starters and none of them made it the whole distance to San Felipe. Leonardo Guzman went further and faster than anyone else and was awarded the gold. Roberto Escobedo A. was two hours slower and went silver and Victor Ibarra was awarded the bronze. Clase Safari CODE had four starters and two of them made it all the way down. Heriberto Chavez and Luivan Voelker were the quickest and took the first place trophy with their time of nine hours, seven minutes and 46 seconds. Second spot went to Alberto Varela who went 10:13:35. The #20 car made it to Check 4 and the #98 car only saw Check l. Another rough race designed by the folks at CODE. Not quite a 50% finish rate, but then as we've said "ain't no sissies on an off road course." Come down and try it some time. CODE wants to thank all of the drivers, crews, friends and families, and various volunteers for their continued support. The 2006 season promises to be every bit as good as the last. Call the CODE people for information. See you somewhere on the Baja. ..-.... Page 54 Whiplash Gila Bend ... From Page 37 nice finish in the Sportsman race. Charlie Brown in the #1362 car was one of the strongest runners in the Sportsman ranks, but Charlie made a wrong turn on each lap, causing him to unknow-ingly cut part of the course, and earning a DQ. It was a very un-fortunate event for a team that deserved to earn a finish, and was strong from start to finish. The wrong turn he took also created penalties for several other teams who made the same mistake. Ap-parently there was even a stray di-rection arrow pointing the way to DQ and down the wrong path on the course. Gator Stapley also fell victim to this same mistake, and was also DQ' d in the class. The Sport Mini class had a very strong showing with eight com-petitors in the class. Ruben Frederico (Gamble Electric, ICA) was up to the challenge, complet-ing six laps, and earning the win. Dwayne Anders0n had his girl-friend Melissa Flam in the truck and he sped on to a second place finish. It was only the third race on the trick, and Dwayne had a blast, giving credit to Danny Sullivan Builders for supporting his entry. Scott Nimmo com-pleted four laps to earn the bronze medal in the class. Cody Calvelage (Blue Adobe) made it a family affair, racing with Uncle Stan in the same race, in differ-ent classes. Cody's truck ran well after a disastrous first lap with a dead battery, and no roadside as-sistance. Whiplash has conjured up a Rocky Point race scheduled for early December. The organiza-tion will be racing on a new track, located near Sonoyta just about ten miles across the Mexican border. Jay is working hard to get the details ironed out to make this an event to remember, with a secured lot for racers, some facilities to support the race, and a track that should be super. Clear your calendars, and check those season points totals ... cause this will be the deciding race of the year. __ -.,,, CRS Prescott ... From Page 19 ing by two minutes overall in class after Perkinsville-3 (SS 11) a class win looked like a sure thing in the Moser camp. But with Larry Gross setting quick time in their Trophy Corona on Perkinsville-I (SS6) the day wasn't all the Moser's, also setting fast time on SS7 (Limestone Canyon North) was George Doganis, in his Nissan Sentra, who found himself second overall in class after three stages. To Michel Hoche-Mong's credit he hung tough with the Moser juggernaut, finishing second on Stages SS9 and 10, while taking third on SSll. Michel's times kept him third overall just behind George Doganis who was also driving an aggressive rally, his times on Witty Tom North (Stages 2 and 3) reflected his style while keeping Michel in arrears. Sadly a roll-over by the Mosers in their VW Golf GTi on Witty Tom North ended the event for them and changed the outcome of this rally. Now the focus was on Doganis and Hoche-Mong, just hun-dredths apart after SS 11, but with new Yokohama tires on the car Michel drove his Bombardier to two first place finishes, putting the rally demons to rest for good. Meanwhile Dogan is finished second on SS 12 and fourth on the final stages finishing out of the top ten overall taking the 11th spot just a minute behind Michel. Finishing in third position was Jim Pierce, using Mike Taylor's Ford Ranger; his best time of the day was a tie for first on SS6. His later stage efforts were not typical of Jim, his best time was a fourth on SS9. Fourth in class went to a new rally team of Sarkis Mazmanian and M. Mazmanian in their Acura lntegra, finishing 19th overall; fifth place went to K. Marciniak and C. Wittish while sixth went to Cody Crane and Mark Keith (Honda CRX) and in last place the team of Larry Gross and Doug Young. Another fine rally for the organizers of Prescott, Mike Taylor and his staff showed again how to present one of the most popular events on the California Rally Series calendar. Scheduled for October 2006 this event is one not to miss. ·,, central'··· From Page 25 on duty. Dave W. is napping. At about 8:50 a.m. there's a discussion of how the radio folks should handle "into pit" and "out of pit" times. Which one should they use? Sandy, Casy, Doug and Dave C. are all working, Brad is back from his nap and Charlie Engelhart is checking on someone's progress. By 9 a.m. Lin's back, and there are eight of us in the motorhome. They're trying to convince Jeff that he doesn't need to come in. Dave C. and Doug are trying to print a list of the BFG cars that have not gone through the pits that are still open. At 9:30 Sandy served breakfast, which disappeared in minutes. At 11 a.m. they were trying to find out how a couple of the Baja Challenge cars fell out of the computer. Doug, Brad, Lin and Casyareworking, Dave C. is "dozing off' on the couch and Dave W. is just back from a walk. San Telrno reports they're about to shut down. Dave C. decides to go take a nap. Llano Colorado is now the only BFG pit left open. Charlie Engelhart stops in for a visit. At 11:25 Saturday morning Llano Colorado is still calling in passing times. At l: 12 p.m., Brad, Doug, Casy, Lin, Dave W. and Dave C,. are all working. And at 1:55. At 2:24 Rafael Navarro and his son, Dave C., Brad, Dave W., Doug, Sandy, Casy, John H. and myself are all in the motorhome, in a sort of stupor. Dominic came by looking for Dave W. At 3 p.m. Dave W. and Doug are working, Casy and Sandy are talking about making lunch. At about that point I left to take a nap and then went on to the BFG celebration at Estero Beach. I was, as always, amazed at the amount of time and trouble that goes into keeping track of the BFG racers. This report only skims over the details, and there's not enough space to delineate the dedication and effort that go into making the team work properly. BFG racers don't fall through the cracks. There's always someone who can report where they've been seen, and what needs to be done to get them moving again. It's a comfort-able feeling for the racers and their chase crews. One broken racer at this event said, of Relay Bruce Erickson, he "was a calm voice out there in the Ether solving problems and straightening out race related dilemmas." It's just what they do -but, oh gosh - they sure do it right! . _-.,,, Wired to Win! Wiring Going To Make It Another Season?

Sheldon Paul finished second in the SNORE Limited Sportsman Class, a long first lap cost him a bunch of time. A third place finish in Class 1750 went to Jason La Fortune, he's seen here heading for home in his Jeep. Glenn Barnes was third in SNORE Limited Sportsman, a terribly long third lap cost him a bunch of Bl TD/SNORE Henderson Terrible's 400 ... From Page 17 stub axle, which they repaired at Pit 3. When they left there they'd lost the bearings out of the axle and had to go back to the main pit for another fix. As usual, it had been good, close racing in this class. The next batch of SNORE racers to start was the 5-1600s. There were nine of them, but only seven managed to get the first lap completed. One other car almost failed. Art Savedra rolled his bug at Mile 3, and lost at least an hour getting going again. In the meantime, Rick Gutierrez went into the lead with the fast lap for this class at 1:42:21. He had about four min-utes on Jasper Dwyer, who ran second, and then it was Billy Worthing in third, about seven minutes further back. Worthing dropped out on the second lap, and now the lead belonged to Dwyer, with Gutierrez second and Gary Messer in third place. Savedra had another long lap, 'though better than his first, and so did Steven Alexander, who was hav-ing fuel pump problems. On Lap 3 the lead belonged to Dwyer still, and as Gutierrez fell by the wayside, Messer moved up to second place. Savedra and his co-driver, Billy Gereghty, were now third in spite of their problems. Their car was now popping out of gear, they'd had steering trouble, and their mo-tor was unwell. This class did only four laps and it was a good thing. Messer had just barely finished Lap 3 and taken the turn into the dip at the bottom of the infield when his car stopped going forward. After a lot of excited study of the back end of the car the team deter-mined that he'd broken two c.v. joints! They towed him off for repair, vowing to get a finish. Gereghty babied the Savedra car around, hoping the motor would last, and down to just third gear. But he made it, and surprisingly, was the first one in. Savedra and Gereghty got the win! In second, after a long last lap spent repairing those two c.v.s, Messer and Fair Hayward took second. They "smoked the motor" about six miles before the finish, and also just barely made it in. And Steven Alexander, who'd had his troubles early in the day, had the best lap time at 2:03:41 and fin-Dusty Times ished third. He reported some rear shock problems also. No one else finished, Dwyer falling out on Lap 4. The three finishers were within 15 minutes of one another -more good racing. There were four SNORE Class 9 cars, and they were re-quired to run only four laps. Only three of them made it around the first lap, Rusty Ruby the only early dnf. Glenn Dickton put himself into the lead, with the fast lap for this class 1:44:45, and he had five minutes on Brandon Hughes. Chad Evans ran third in his Dickton chassis. On the second lap Hughes moved into the lead as Dickton lost an hour with some problem. Evans moved to second and Dickton was third, about 45 minutes behind the leader now. Lap 3 looked the same, except that Justin Evans took over driv-ing in place of his brother. It was still Hughes, Evans and Dickton. Dickton disappeared on the fourth lap, leaving just Hughes and the Evans brothers to duke it out. Hughes ran a good lap to take the win, and reported that his exhaust had fallen off, he'd lost a cylinder and did a whole lap with only three cylinders, and his pit crew had to change a plug wire. Still, he won by a half h our. The Evans brothers had no serious problems, drove a steady pace, and took second, a fine performance in their first race. The next group to go was an interesting group called the Cham-pion Class -it's made up on old 1600 cars, which are not allowed to use disc brakes or bypass shocks. There were only three of them (but there must be hundreds more parked in garages in the Southern Nevada, Southern Cali-fornia area). Daniel Maurer didn't get through his first lap, leaving only two racers out on the course. Bryan Adams led, with three minutes on Kenny Freeman at the end of Lap 1, but then Adams lost about an hour and a half, and Freeman moved into the lead. Adams had run out of gas and had to walk back to Pit 3. Once there he'd had a BITD offi-cial take him and the fuel back out to his car, and he got going again. Freeman broke a limiter strap on the third lap and lost a bit of time, but now Adams broke a throttle cable and lost more time, so Freeman stayed in front. On the last lap (Lap 4) Kenny's son, Cody, whose own car was broken early, got in and set a good pace, even without the limiter strap, to take the win. Kenny had recorded the quick time for this small group, at 1:43:51, on Lap 2. Adams was not yet done, but he said the last lap was good until Mile 60, when the lights dimmed and the car died. He was a while figuring it out, but finally put on a new belt and went on and fin-ished, three hours behind the Freemans, and cold and tired. The Unlimited Sportsman was the next class to take off, with four entries. They had to do only three laps. All of them made it through the first one, with Jerry Stewart in the lead by about 45 minutes, with the fast lap for the class in 1:37 flat. In second place it was John Poling. Jason Gubler had done a lap of nearly four hours, and never came around again. On the second lap Stewart, and co-driver, Tom Hood stayed in front with a lap only a minute and 4 5 seconds slower than their first. They now led by over an hour and Robert Gross and Mark Clifton ran second. Poling dropped away on this lap. February 2006 Stewart and Hood delivered Collins, with a 1 :46: 16, took another fine lap, said their day over the lead, and Barnes held was flawless, and they'd had no second. Sheldon Paul, who took problems with their Type I mo-over for Chris Delov, also had a tor. They won by over three good lap in his Chenowth, and hours. In second it was Gross, the race tightened up a bit. Clifton and Mark Bass, who said Collins put Alyson Spina into a torsion bar had "squatted", her car to do the last lap and, in and they'd been "landed on by a spite of a little problem keeping Truggy". They had tire marks to the car running (it didn't idle prove it. They also said their car well), Spina set a good pace in her had been racing since 1983, one first race, and the pair took the of several veteran vehicles out for win.
