CRANDON RECORD BOOK -Crandon International Off-Road Raceway nnounced that three off-road racers have been added to its record ook after sterling performances at the 2007 Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run Races this past June 23-24. Headlining the list is "Crandon Carl" Renezeder who achieved his second Potawatomi Chairman's Cup win in his Lucas Oil BF Goodrich Nissan Titan 4x4. Renezeder, (Newport Beach, Calif.), previously won the Cup in 2004. Renezeder is all over the Crandon record books as he also holds the overall fastest lap time ever completed at the famous off-road track, the record for the fastest lap by a PRO 2WD race truck, and he is also a winner of the 2003 BorgWarner Shootout. He was pole winner for BorgWarner Shootout's in 2001 and 2003. Two well-known PRO Light Pickup racers broke records over the race weekend for fastest lap and also fastest race of all-time in the class. Chad Hord(Felch, Mich.) broke the fastest lap record set last year by Robert Naughton (1:33.555) by spinning a quick time of 1.32.927 over Crandon's wide open throttle 1.5 mile circuit in his Boss Plows Kumho Lucas Oil Nissan Frontier. Not to be outdone, fellow PRO Light Pickup competitor Jeff Kincaid set the record for the fastest PRO Light Pickup race of all-time at the track posting a time of 14: 10.38 in his Forest County Potawatomi BF Goodrich Fox Toyota Tacoma. Kincaid (Argonne, Wisc.) broke the class record set by Rodrigo Ampudia at last year's BorgWarner World Championship Off-Road Races. Crandon hosts the 2007 edition of the BorgWarner Off-Road World Championships this coming Labor Day weekend August 31-September 2. Off-road racing's biggest event of the year, the World Championships feature the 13th annual battle for the BorgWarner Shootout and $125,000 BorgWarner Cup on Sunday, September 2. More information is available on the internet at or aRR's NEW VENUE -Championship Off Road Racing is excited to nnounce the 2007 season finale race weekend will take place at the rand new Las Vegas International Off Road Raceway in Primm, Nevada. With what has been a truly ground breaking season for Championship Off Road Racing it is only fitting to end the season at one of the most thrilling tracks CORR has ever built. The location will give CORR the needed space to create a track worthy for the 2007 Championship battles. With the point's race tighter than ever before, the season finale will be the battling grounds to settle feuds, start new ones and crown the 2007 Champions. Will Jerry Whelchel, Carl Renezeder and Rodrigo Ampudia still be leading the point's standings in their respective Pro classes when CORR arrives in Nevada? Fans stay tuned; anything can happen. The dirt will fly again when the action packed ride of CORR returns on September 15'h and 16'h at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in Lancaster, CA. Don't forget about the second annual Jason Baldwin Memorial Cup race, which takes place at the finale in Primm, Nevada. The race pays tribute to the highly recognized driver Jason Baldwin and his contribution to the sport. Pro 2 and Pro 4 drivers compete throughout the year in seven separate races to qualify in the winner-take-all cup race at the end of the season. In the finale the two classes will be racing against each other, battling it out for a $66,000 purse and the prestigious Jason Baldwin Memorial Cup.

IDER DOWN -TSCO "Vegas to Reno" Pre-Fun Run Injury Update rom Casey Folks: As many of you may know, Christopher Blais, our pen Pro rider N 16, was injured early Sunday morning during the pre-fun run. He's not sure what he hit but it was a single person accident at mile marker 255, just coming out of the Miller's Pit. David Pearson was riding with him and there were people on site with Chris. Donald Jackson, our Race Steward, was on site managing the accident and an EMT team was dispatched out ofTonopah and a medical helicopter came out of Reno to transport Chris. Chris fractured his 7'h vertebrae; he had surgery Sunday night and we are all waiting to see how Chris heals. He is with his wife Patty. Patty and C hris would like to extend their thanks to everyone that was on the scene to help, everyone that has called to help and they are overwhelmed with all of the concern, and your thoughts and prayers. Best In The Desert is setting up a fund to help Chris out, we will have details on our site soon, it just takes some time to set up, but any help you can extend to Chris and Patty would be greatly appreciated. Also, all of us at Best In The Desert would like to thank everyone that stopped to help. Johnny Campbell and Steve Hengeveld helped, we understand the BJ Baldwin team stopped, we have their medical bag, and a big thank you to Steve Olliges for calling his doctor friends and getting things to happen in Reno and I know there are many more of you that helped. That is what makes off-road racing so great, it's you, all of our racers, because we are a family and there isn't anyone involved with Best In The Desert that wouldn't help anyone of us. Unfortunately this time it was Chris. Again, just keep praying for Chris to make a full recovery and we will keep you updated as we know more information. Chris is in the Renown Hospital on Mill Street in Reno. Further information available from: email: (702) 457-577 5. Page 7

I.As VEGAS TERRl■LE's CuP Ill Not And Heavy Racing BY ]UDY SMITH It was a great weekend for Mark Post and Rob MacCachren, they took home all the marbles in the Trophy Truck contest in their Ford F-150. Las Vegas, NV: As the last of the fireworks fizzled out, SCORE officials huddled to determine that the winner of their third Las Vegas short course Tro-phy Truck main was the team of Mark Post and Rob MacCachren in their Ford. B.J. Baldwin had actually crossed the finish line first, but a yellow flag he didn't see dropped him back to second place once the offi-cials had had their say. While it was a dispiriting way to end what had been a night of great racing and terrific competition, it was the right thing to do. MacCachren was driving the final heat in Post's truck and he and Baldwin had a terrific race for the full six lap heat. On the fi-nal lap, as they neared a very narrow right turn onto a ramp that went up then down over the circle track's fencing, another truck stalled. The flagmen imme-diately went to work, and so did the spotter that MacCachren was listening to on his radio. MacCachren was in front, having just got there on the previous lap, and he braked for the flags. Baldwin, right behind him, didn't see the flagmen and he apparently had no spotter. At any rate, unaware of MacCachren's reason for braking, Baldwin passed him. It was hard for both teams, but good sportsmanship and good manners prevailed, and the win went to Post and MacCachren while Baldwin was declared second. This year for the first time the event was on SCORE's calendar as a points event. This meant that for those classe that were on the list, it would be a disadvantage to stay home. Those who are chas-ing points came. And in general they enjoyed the Page 8 racing and had a good time. SCORE had declared that Trophy Trucks, Class 1, Class 10, SCORE Lites, 1/ 2-1600 and Class 7 would earn points for racing at the Speedway. They had 22 Trophy Trucks, 18 Class ls, 8 Class 10s, 14 SCORE Lites, 22 1600s and 13 Class 7 trucks. They split the Trophy Trucks into heats; creating two heats and a "semi" or "main" each day. Classes 10 and SCORE Lite raced to-gether, the SCORE Lites starting 30 seconds after the 10s. All classes except the Trophy Trucks raced two heats on Friday, and one heat and a main event on Saturday. Effectively, as in the two previous years, the first day's racing was merely practice for the sec-ond day, and the heats just determined the start order for the next race. The only race that counted for points was the main event for each class on Saturday night. Times didn't get "added up" the way they do at the Laughlin event. The weather was typical of Las Vegas in July, with temperatures at about 110, and some mugginess thanks to the onset of the annual "monsoon" weather that drags moisture up from Mexico by way of Arizona. This year, the third time for this event, many of the race teams were ultra-prepared for the heat. The pits be-came a long line of closed tents with huge air condi-tioners plugged into giant generators to keep the teams cool while they made between-race repairs or ad-justments. Next to the tents many teams had set up swimming pools. Some were big enough for a whole team to enjoy at once, some were glorified wading pools, but all allowed a weary and hot team member to settle in and cool off. While it's kind of surprising to walk past a pit and see six adults males, beer bottles in hand, sitting in an inflatable pool, it's hard to beat the logic. For the most part the rac-ing was close and exciting, and the best show wasn't al-ways from the Trophy Trucks. An appreciative au-dience hollered and cheered as hard for the 1600s, who put on a terrific show every ti me. All the events were five laps except for the Trophy Trucks and Class 1, who got to run six lap races. All weekend long the Trophy Trucks were touted as the "premiere class" of SCORE racing, which apparently meant that those drivers got more interviews and the an-nouncers took the time to get their names right. The schedule for the weekend included a sort of haphazard contingency and tech inspection on Friday, interspersed with brief on-track practice for the rac-ers. During tech a good number of them were told by tape-measure wielding inspectors that their tires were "too short". It seems that although a tire may be marked 30 inches or 33 inches, they may not actu-ally measure that amount. The tire industry permits a variance of a couple of inches, thus a 33 inch tire could measure 32 inches, or 34 inches. Representa-tives from BFGoodrich ex-plained this to the tech people, and also told them about the accepted way to measure tires which was to remove them from the car, then measure all the way around the midsection of the tire/wheel, and divide the number by 3.4. Obvi-ously, the idea of trying to check tire size in this way September 2007 Robert Ross drove his Potter Chevy to the Class 1 win at Vegas, beating some very heavy talent along the way, seen here at speed. in 110 degree weather didn't appeal to anyone. Ultimately, the tech crew decided to check the tire size at the finish line on Saturday. But in the mean-time, some teams had gone hustling off to various tire stores, looking for taller tires. The course was almost the same as in the previous two years, except that they added an infield turn, which meant the cars had to make a left and then a sharp right, immediately af-ter landing off the finish line jump. Besides that, there was the long back stretch, where each event started, a left into a short straight, then a sweeper left, some moguls, and then a right into the second longest straight, which ended in some uneven mo-guls and a very sharp and narrow right hander, threading through K-Rail, onto dirt ramp built up and over the fencing around the facility's dirt track. Then a short straight, with bumps, into the infield sweeper, which had a soft berm around the outside, onto a short straight and the fin-ish line jump. Then the cars landed just why of the new left turn, into a right hand hairpin, then a gentle left out onto the old track, and a jump on to the pave-ment and past the pits, to a left hander onto the long backstretch. New for this year was a big TV screen in the infield which allowed the audience a close up look at seven different ar-eas of the course not so eas-ily seen from the bleachers. During practice, a fine dust wafted over the con-tingency area, and appar-ently attracted the atten-tion of the air quality con-trol folks from the area. They threatened either closing the event down, or assessing a hefty fine if something wasn't done to stop the dust. The water trucks went to work with a vengeance, and the result was so slippery that the rac-ers could hardly maneuver around the track. Some who practiced after that heavy application of water were really concerned that the races would be a disas-ter the next day. The racing started on Friday with a heat for half the Trophy Trucks and Andy McMillin got the hole shot in his Chevrolet. The new turn was wet and slimy and the drivers all had trouble keeping their ve-hicles going forward through it. Bobby Baldwin somehow got his Chevy high-centered in the sweeper before the finish line jump, and course work-ers were a long time getting to him. As he came to the sharp right-hander through the K-Rail, McMillin took a bad bump and ended his week-end hung up on the K-Rail. Travis Coyne went into the lead in his Ford. Garron Cadiente was second now, but a distance back and Josh Baldwin ran third in another Ford. Bobby Baldwin was pulled clear by a tow truck and had t ime to get four laps done. Cameron Steele left the track, and now Coyne had such a big lead he was vir-tually all by himself. Then it was Cadiente and Baldwin, Larry Ragland Steven Eugenio literally flew to a great Class 1600 victory, he's seen here headin' for that checkered flag in his Lothringer. Dusty Times

It was a good weekend for Barry Karakas Sr., he drove his Toyota Tacoma to the Class 7 win, seen here ready for touchdown. Adam Wik drove his Jimco Honda to a very nice win in the Class 10 competition at the Terrible's Cup, seen here in flight. arid Adam Pfankuch. The first time through the Fish-hook turn three or four cars tangled in a jam. On the as seat shown second lap, with Kennedy still in front and Eugenio chasing, Kevin Graves got bumped out of the Fish-hook and lost a position. Lap 3 looked the same, with Kennedy leading, Eugenio chasing, and Pfankuch third. Curt Geer rolled over in the infield sweeper turn.

Then, Pfankuch, Freeman and Kevin Walsh ran behind them, ready to move up if a gap appeared. When they came around on the last lap Eugenio was in front, with Kennedy and Pfankuch right behind him. It was a tight finish, and Freeman and Walsh weren't far behind in fourth and fifth. Eugenio said he'd had to "kick it up a bit the last couple of laps" to get the all important win. Eugenio won $3,000, Kennedy took home $1,000 and Pfankuch and Freeman were each awarded $500. All 19 cars that started fin-ished all five laps. Saturday's first Class 7 race started at _7:40, and Br5)C Ross got the hole shot one more time, and devel-oped a big lead. But McNeil and Chamlee were follow-ing. McNeil was running hard this heat, and caught Ross near the end of the long inside straight. Now it was McNeil, Ross, and Chamlee, with Chris Taylor in fourth. But he lasted only one more lap. Patty Hayos rolled over near the end of the back straight on the third lap, and got no more laps in. McNeil stayed in front, Ross was second, and Chamlee third, and they ran that way to the finish, lapping several drivers who'd just not run at the same pace. For their main event, Ross once again started in front, with Chamlee second and McNeil running third. On the second lap Karakas got by three trucks to move into second place. McNeil, meanwhile, tipped over onto his side and some-thing caught fire. Both the driver and passenger were quickly out of the car, and McNeil was done for the evening. Ross stayed in front all the way this time, and took the checkered flag first, fol-lowed across the finish line by Karakas. Ross immedi-ately left the field, knowing he'd been DQ'd, before the race, for a front end that was too wide. Karakas was the legal winner, and won $3,000 for his weekend of fun. It was the third year he'd won at the Las Vegas event. Not surprisingly, he said "I love it!" In second it was Shannon Dierkop, in a Ford. He said this was his first time short course rac-ing, and "I was kinda slow learning." He learned enough to win $1,000 for his efforts. In third it was Robert Anderson, another Ford, who said he'd had an "awesome race." His payday was $500, as was that of fourth place, Doug Chadwick, Toyota. When the first Class 10 and SCORE Lite event started on Saturday it was almost 8:00 p.m·. Once again, Wik got the lead, with Hardesty chasing him. The course wasn't wet; in-Dusty Times

Page 13

stead there were clouds of dust, which suited the rac-ers just fine. One car rolled over in the infield, landed on his wheels, but didn't go anywhere after that thanks to two right side flats. Wik and Hardesty were still du-eling, and continued right to the end. They flew the finish line jump together, to take first and second. Steele and Cummings were one and two in the SCORE Lite class, and all but two of them managed to finish all five laps. When they came back for their main event it was even dustier. And this time it was more of the same. Wik and Hardesty dueled hard, Yee ran third and Higman fourth. Higman moved up to third, by Lap 3. And they ran that way to the finish. With Wik and Hardesty there was never a moment when they just drove around. Wik was concen-trating on not letting Hardesty by, and Hardesty was working all the time to find a spot. He was the only in the class who jumped the triple jump, which most had thought could be done only by the Trophy Trucks or Class 1 cars. It was in-credible racing. Wik won the $3,000, Hardesty took home $1,000 and Higman and Mike Lawrence each won $500. Only four of the six starters got all five laps. In the SCORE Lite Dusty Times ranks, Steele took the win, working his way up to third on the road, and hoping to be able to catch and pass Hardesty and Wik. He couldn't get that accom-plished, but drove a fine race. Behind him, Chad Cummings, who'd been so tough on Friday, was stuck in second gear, and was hard pressed to hang on to third place. Jason Batulis, in a car painted pink, to "mess with Cameron's mind", ran a steady race, to take second. Again, the purse was $3,000, $1,000, $500 and $500. Tom Watson took fourth place. The first Class 1 race on Saturday had 17 starters, and went off the line shortly after 8 p.m. Ramirez went into the lead, but there was a big jam in the Fish-hook, and he lost several positions. His uncle, Robert Ross, emerged from the mess in the lead, with Gasper sec-ond, Roeseler third, and Josh Baldwin fourth. By the third lap the Truggy had moved up to second behind Ross, and Baldwin was third, with Ramirez fourth and trying to catch him. They held those positions through the fourth lap, but Gasper lost his position when he devel-oped a right rear flat. On the fifth lap it was Ross, Roeseler, Baldwin and Ramirez. And at the finish it was the same, with Ross just barely holding off Roeseler for a terrific fin-ish. When they came back for their main event there were only 15 of them. Max Thieriot rolled over in Turn 1, and Ross just barely holding off Roeseler for a terrific finish. When they came back for their main event there were only 15 of them. Max Thieriot rolled over in Turn 1, and Ross went into the lead, followed by Ramirez, and Casey Currie in Dan Myers' car. They stayed the same through Lap 2, except that Thieriot was going again, but a lap down. There was a rolled car in the infield sweeper turn. And for some reason, Pat dean was way off the pace. On the third lap it was still Ross, Ramirez, Currie and Baldwin, and that's the way it went to the finish. This was not a follow-the-leader event. These drivers were working hard, but so well matched in equipment and skill, that it was all but impossible to get an edge. As they rounded the last turn, all tight on one an-other, Ramirez's car started to miss just a bit. The three leaders went over the finish line in a bunch, but Ramirez's was not running when he landed off the jump, and he coasted to a September 2007 Cameron Steele had a good time, he drove his Score Lite Desert Assassin to the class win over 13 other drivers. stop in the next turn, while the others drove up to the podium area. He wasn't sure why it quit, but thought it might have run out of gas at just that mo-ment. Ross took the win, the Myers/Currie team was second, and Ramirez held on to third in spite of his edgy finish. Their winnings were $3,000, $1,000, $500 and $500 to Baldwin, who was fourth. The final event of the weekend was the Trophy Truck main, and there were 18 starters lined up. B.J. Baldwin got the early lead, and got through Turn 4, which is the one that had wiped out McMillin's and James' trucks on Friday. But Alan Pflueger didn't make it through. He some-how got his right front tire up on the K-Rail, and the truck went over. The rest of the field was going every which way to get through the narrow turn, without running into anyone or any-thing. When they went past the finish line jump the first time it was Baldwin, MacCachren, Ragland, Jones and Sohren leading the pack. Tim Herbst al-ready had a right rear flat, and he apparently decided there was no use messing with it. He did one lap and that was all. Josh Baldwin was running very late, last, and his body was crunched, giving the impression that he'd been rolled over, a fairly common occurrence with Josh. Continued next page Page 13

On rhc fifth lap MacCachren passed Baldwin on the rear straight, but then B.J. got him back at the very end of the inner straight. On the next lap MacCachren went back into the lead again, and this time, with Baldwin close on his tail, . when they got to Turn 4, MacCachrcn put on his brakes, and Baldwin, who didn't see the flags, passed him. 1t was an awkward mo-ment when B.J., believing he'd got the win, drove up to the podium area.

l6rUa SusouEHANNOCK TRAIL PRO RALLY Plnkers Subaru Wins Andrew Pinker and Robbie Durant took the overall win at STPR, they're seen here hustling their Subaru WRX on a stage. For the second time this season Australia's Pinker bested a tough field of com-petitors to win the oldest con-tinually run rally in America, the Susquehannock Trail Pro Rally, also known as STPR for short. The event is run on the forest roads of the Tioga State Forest near Wellsboro, Penn-sylvania. Pinker's win was not an easy one, however as he was trailed. by Ramana Lagemann, winner at the Olympus Rally held two weeks prior in the state of Washington, and Subaru Rally Team USA driver Travis Pastrana, who was last year's Rally-Australia cham-pion. This rally 1-ias always been known as unforgiving to even the best competitors. This year was no exception. Subaru Rally Team USA had big problems before the start of the event when Ken Block had rolled his Subaru WRX in a big way on the practice stage the day prior to the event. The car hit a tree on the passenger side door and the right rear suspen-sion was torn from the car as well. The crew then trailered the wrecked car back to Burlington, Vermont and re-trieved the car that Ken had used to make his gigantic 170-foot jump for the Stunt Junkies television show. The crew had to work feverishly overnight to make adjustments prior to the event. The car made it back in time for the final tech inspec-tion and made it to the pare expose in Wellsboro at the last minute. Ken's substitute co-driver for this event was none other than rally legend John Buffum as his regular co-driver Alex Gelsomino received minor injuries from the Friday crash and sat out the event as a pre-cautionary measure. Ken was leading the championship going into STPR, and wanted to keep his points lead solid. Travis Pastrana in the other SRT USA car wanted a win here after having a slight off last year on the final stage and handed the win to Matt Iorio. DNF's at the prior two events at Oregon and Olympus had set him back in of get-ting a second championship. A win here would help to put him back in the hunt. Only one of the SYMS Rally Team USA Subaru WRX's was on hand and that was Pinker's Jack Daniels sponsored car. Tanner Foust was competing at a drifting event on the west coast and stated that he would be sitting out the next event at Maine as well. Pinker chose to take the dust-free option and opted to start the rally as the first car on the road dur-ing the seeded draw for start positions on Friday evening. Pastrana and Block were next on the road followed by Raman Lagemann in the Cas-A big win in Production GT went to Matthew Johnson and Jeremy Wimpey, seen here at speed in their Subaru WRX. cade radng Mitsubishi Evo 7, Canadian Antoine L'Estage in an ex-factory Hyundai Tiburon, and last year's win-ner Matt Iorio in a Subaru Im-preza. Other cars that had true potential to win included Seamus Burke in his very fast Mitsubishi Evo 9, multi-time S1PR winner Paul Choinere in the other ex-factory Hyundai Tiburon, Canadian hotshoe Andrew Comrie-Picard in an Evo 9, and Celsus Donnelly in the ex-Thomas Lawless Evo 8. A field of 50 cars left the start on the one day formatted rally, which is known for its high speed sections and ultra-tight hairpins. Stage 1 saw Pinker grab the early lead beat-ing L'Estage and Andrew Comrie-Picard, more com-monly known as ACP. The SRT USA cars of Pastrana and Block ran fourth and sixth respec-tively, with Iorio sandwiched in the middle. Stage 2 saw Pinker maintain his lead over L'Estage, but Lagemann was reeling them in by getting third fastest time. Burke was also on the move only just over 11 sec-onds off of Pinker's pace. Then the first big nilme was out, and unfortunately it was Ken Block. After a grueling night of getting the car prepped the engine expired about a mile into the second stage. On Stage 3 Lagemann was fastest over Pinker, L'Estage, Pastrana and ACP. On 4, the famous Subaru Splash stage where the cars enter a stream crossing at 80 mph, L'Estage was fastest. By the midday break where the cars were di·s-p layed back in We.llsboro, Pinker held a 4.9 second lead over L'Estage, with Lagemann's Evo back another 20 seconds. Pastrana, ACP and Iorio held down the next three positions and continued to battle amongst each other. Burke and Choinere were playing it cau-tious during the morning stages as each driver has had their share of bad luck at this event in the past. Jonathan Bottoms held down ninth place in his now Open-class Subaru as the lack of entries in the Group N category prompted him to make the switch. In the other classes there was plenty of action. In Pro-duction GT, Matthew Johnson's Subaru WRX held down the top spot and 10th overall after his biggest threat Stephen Verdier limped to the end of Stage 3 and quit. By the end of Stage 4 he had almost a two minu.te lead over his near-est competitor Patrick Moro, also in a WRX. In Group N, Otis Dimiters held onto the lead but his car was running rough through the last two stages of the morning. In Group 5, 18 year old sensation Kyle Sarasin in a Ford Focus held the top spot over Andrew Performance Proven for Desert & Off-Road Use 150 Heavy Duty Sizes to Choose from Detail & Pressure Wash Tanks Marine Holding & Water Tanks Bulk Storage & Waste Tanks R.V.

... T■KIAUTOFAB .. Ran ■,ant Takes It All BY STEVE RUDDICK PHOTOS: TRACKS/DE PHOTO Can't keep a good man down, Ron Brant got it all together and took the Class 1 honors and the overall win as well. aaArgg! It's a dusty n'a dirrrRty job, I do, mind you; 'tis true. But, who could ask more from a job like this. Consider: I'm out in the middle of BFE Lucerne Valley, CA (aka the Johnson Valley BLM OHV area at Bessemer Mine Road). It is a beautiful, sunny day , the skies are all clear as a bell; and blue, too. You can see for miles - un-less you're caught in somebody else's 'dust' stream. The weather is warm and breezy on Saturday for the M.O.R.E. Off Road Auto Fab (ORAF) 400 night race; May 26, 2007. Many came out early to play over the 1-o-n-g Memorial Day weekend holiday, and Pit Row at Main S/F went on for miles. The course was actually something new, too; for a change; FreSh diRt! Forty-plus miles of it. The race actually "started" at Soggy Dry Lake, and M.O.R.E. gave 'em the green -four and five racers wide at a time; a mini-Land Rush style start. GasZ N GO! The first lap everyone was standing and spectating from the top of the Rock Pile, as the racers made their way uphill from Soggy Dry Lake to the main course -about three miles or so. Ron Brant was first off the line at the green flag in car #101, first to crest the hill at the Rock Pile, and first to cross the finish line for the Overall, and first place in class, wins. Brant won the whole enchilada, completing nine laps in 06:35: 10 at 55.9 mph. #101 also took home the Fast Lap honors on Lap 1 at 63.3 mph, in 00:38:45. The course was mostly fast-N-faster. Well, there was 'some' kinda-'technical' stuff on the backside at Mile Marker 22-23 or thereabouts. And, there were the usual three Checkpoints and remote pits, along with 28 ma-jor course changes and lots of bumps and thrills in between. And, in the dark of the desert night. Yep, dark. As in, pitch-black. Like, I can't see ... nada. And when you throw up a little dust, it's like driving in pea soup; at least if you are unlucky to be behind someone. Even a zillion watts of HID won't let you 'see' through the dust any better, neither. A GPS helps a lot, if you got the right course plot dialed in. A night vision helmet shield would be soooo way cool! I just do it the olde fashioned way: yellow lights, mounted down low, like you do for the fog and snow. Just follow the bouncing yellow light in front of you, and if it starts go-ing jiggly-wiggle ... slow down. Yu must become 'one' with the diRt, Grasshopper; the art of Zen off road racing, in the dark and the dust. One hundred fourteen en-tries in 14 different classes. Classes 1, 10, 12, 1/2-1600, and 5 did the full money -nine laps. Classes 9, 5/16 and 1300 raced for eight laps, and Classes 8, 7S, 1450, 1400 and 7 went for six laps. Class 11 raced for three laps. The racers had a long, straight uphill stretch from Soggy Dry Lake, and crested the hill under power at the Rock Pile on their way down a steep and dusty slope, before hanging a hard right at the bottom and onto the main course. Lots of frequent flier miles off the top. It was fun and exciting watching two, and even three, racers come flying off the top of the hill -side-by-side; and still race each other neck-and-neck down the hill. The devil dust was already making itself a factor, lingering and loitering in the air. CLASS 1: Nine laps. Eight starters; five finishers. Ron Brant took hone the Overall, Fast Lap and First Place in Class 1 awards in car # 101. Tom Gilchriese won Sec-ond Place in class in car #154, completing the required laps in 06:43:46 at 54. 7 mph. "This is Sean Dunn was the Class 10 winner at MORE, he bested his competition by 11 minutes when he got to the checkers. Gene Wilson, seen here just at touchdown took the Class 12 win, Gene had almost forty minutes in hand at the finish. my first year driving in Class 1 and we are having a ball!! I drove the entire race. My navigators were Ronnie Imhof, and my son, T.J. Gilchriese", said Tom Senior. The TLG Paving Company Class 1 race car #154 ran flawlessly. Built by the amazing Herman Motorsports crew. The start "Sucked". I was lined up on a mound of dirt and 50 feet in front of me was bushes, so all we did was spin the wheels and couldn't get the car out of first gear. Anyway, things worked out and I was the eighth car to hit the rock pile. The course was fast, till later that night it was getting pretty chewed up. We thought we had a flat at one point but all was good, We had two pit stops, one to fuel, switch navigators and put on the light bar and the second pit was for a splash of fuel. We kept a steady pace and finished second overall. I just want to thank everyone who was in-volved." Third Place in Class 1 was won by Shirley Jergensen in car #105. Jergensen finished in 07: 13:06 at 51.0 mph. Danny Wingerning won Fourth Place in class in car #112 at 50.6 mph in 07: 16:53. Lloyd Snyder finished in Fifth Place in truck #70 08:52:16 at 41.5 mph. CLASS 10: Nine laps. Eleven starters, three finishers, one DNS. Shawn Dunn won First Place in Class 10 in car #1035, in 07:30:27 at 49.0 mph. Second Place was Craig Dillon in car #1005, in 07:41:50. Scott Stice won the fast lap in class, on Lap 2 at 57.1 mph, in car #1009. Mike McGee was the Third Place winner in car #1011, getting to the checkers in 07:45:54 at 47.4 mph. CLASS 1200: Dave Cote had a great race, he took the Class 11 win in good style, Dave is seen here hustling towards the finish line. It was a good day for Dave Girdner, he bested 11 other entrants in Class 1600, Dave had more than 10 minutes in hand at the end. Nine laps. Seven entries, two finishers, one DNS. Gene Wil-son got to the checkered flag in 07:48: 10 at 47.2 mph in car #1225, and won First Place in class for the effort. Ben Monroy got car # 1203 to the finish line in 08:28: 17 at 43.5 mph for the Second Place win. Ben Monroy described his race, this way: "Jeff Zember was brought in to drive the first 120 miles of the event. Jeff's day started out a little rough when he encountered some small mechanical issues right off the starting line. Shawn Barbetta rode in the passenger seat the whole race and was able to diagnose the issue and get the car to the nearest F.A.l.R. pit for a quick fix. Unfortunately, this minor set back put #1203 about 45 minutes behind the lead car and in sixth position physically. Jeff did an excellent job driving his part of the race. Ben Monroy jumped into the driver seat af-ter the third lap and was ready to reel back the leaders with 240 miles left in the race. The goal was to finish the race and possi-bly finish on the podium -with some luck. As the race went into the night our car started to pick its way thru the field, as the next 240 miles were uneventful and the car was flawless. We were able to finish the race in eight Page 18 September 2007 Dusty Times

"Once again -big thanks to all of our sponsors and support-ers that made this finish possible for us. Out title sponsor A&D Buggies once again supplied us with fast, reliable motors that never skipped a beat. Trans West ensured out transmission was up to the task of the harsh desert abuse we administered. Mickey Thompson tires handled the rocks and abuse with ease. The whole #1203 race team jumped on every task and never quit until we saw the finish line. Al-lied Racing helped us out this race with pit services, an awe-some job by the whole crew. Big thanks goes out to the F.A.l.R. pits for all of the support this race! We are not F.A.l.R. mem-bers yet, but we thank them for not turning us away." Mike Diorio finished the race in 10:39:36 at 30. 7 mph in car # 1214, for the Third Place win. Matt Frick made it through six laps in car# 1224, before his race night was done: "Hey Brandon, we found your fender. We lost an alternator at Mile 9, on Lap 7. We were walking in the dark so we didn't pick it up. Sorry, I was tired. We ended up walking all the way back to Check 1... six miles!!! Fun stuff. Thanks to our crew and everyone cheering ol Blackie on out there." CLASS 5: Nine laps. Two starters, one finisher, one DNF. From John Aguilar, #513: "I would like to say it was a very exciting race with a lot of carnage in the first few laps. The course was very well planned. The first 29 miles, we were able to move fast, the next 11 miles were more techni-cal which made it a lot of fun. We had a few issues with flat tires and a suspension problem, finally pulled the plug at Mile 268, due to a rear trailing arm. Unfortunately, we did not fin-ish, but still came home in first place, plaque and check in hand." And even though Steve Griffith didn't finish in car #518, it sounds like he still had fun: "Good job to all the M.O.R.E. team and staff, and thanks to the Ward team for sharing their pits with us and to the Deardorff gang for all their help. Even though I lost a mo-tor on Lap 3, I had a blast! It was nice for a change to pass all the 1600 cars and even tag a few 12-10 guys. The track was all about horsepower, that's for sure. The Pack West car did a snap, twist and roll right in front of me and sent $5,000.00 worth Dusty Times of HIDs 20 feet in the air. We stopped to make sure there was not going to be a fire, and a 1600 There were lots of competitors in Class 7S, but when the dust cleared it was Steve Rose taking a nice win. stopped and could see inside their car and gave us a 'thumbs up', so we carried on." Griffith September 2007 did win the Fast Lap honors on Lap 2 at 49.5 mph. CLASS 1/2-1600: Nine laps. Eleven entries, ten starters, seven finishers, three DNFs, one DNS. Dave Girdner got car #1622 to the checkered flag in 07:41:48 at 47.8 mph to win First Place in class. Girdner also won the Fast Lap honors on Lap 2 at 53.2 mph in 00:46:10. Brett Maurer won Second Place in car #1617, completing the course in 07:54:22 at 46.6 mph. Matt Gumz finished his required laps in 08:03:27 at 45.8 mph to win Third Place in car #1616. Jeremy Lindsay took 08:27: 12 to find the finish line in car #1672 for the Fourth Place win, at 43.5 mph. Lindsay summed up his race day, this way: "I actually had a pretty uneventful day/night. I was at a bit of a disadvantage on this course due to the fact that I'm still running a single port, Continued next page Page 19

Joey and Brittany navigated through the dust as they made their way around the course for another lap. On the start of their seventh lap, they started losing the power steering. They had to pull into Main Pit once again to fill up on power steer-ing fluid and were on their way. They made their way to Race Mile 29.5 and lost the power steering again; the car wouldn't turn at all. Joey and Brittany tried to make it to their remote pit at Check 3 where Tim & Zack were standing by, wen the steering locked up and they hit a boulder and landed in a Joshua Tree. Out pit at Check 3 loaded up and made their way through the desert and rocks to help get us on our way. With the help of Wild Bill's relay we were able to get the message to main pit to bring spare parts, bolts, and lots of tools." "Thanks to Tim, Zach, David, Josh and Steven for getting there so quickly and getting them back on their way, Joey and Brittany were able to finish that lap. It was now a race against time; with two laps to go it was going to have to be a flawless finish. The duo started their next lap with just enough time, made it to Race Mile 29 -and ran out of fuel. After everything that hap-pened before this they were lucky to have made it this far. The two sat out in the middle of nowhere, waiting for Main Pit to come with fuel and were re-layed that they would not be able to make it out on another lap; their race was over. With the sun about to rise, the team made their way back to Main Pit, pass-ing the carnage in the desert. Teams were strewn out all over; being towed in by chase trucks, digging out their race cars, and rethinking their defeat ... After a harsh battle with the Lucerne Valley desert." Very nice try.

AT YERINGTON Do1n· 1t In The Dirt TEXT & PHOTOS: DWIGHT STEWART Kevin Hescock had a good day, he took the gold medal in the Semi Pro Division, he's seen here at speed. VORRA has done it again ... hosted a great desert race that is. The Yerrington 300, what a race it was, complete with a parade down Main Street prior to Sunday's big race. The race was followed by an aawards ceremony at Ca-si no West in downtown Yerrington on Monday. The race course was carefully mapped out and would prove to be as de-manding on a race vehicle as it would be the driver. Dennis Kordonowy and the VORRA crew put to-gether a 50+ mile loop that would be lapped five time. Watching the quads. wind through the canyon, one could only wonder how a car or truck would be navigated through the miles of twists and turns up, over, and around the mesme.rizing mountains of the Northern Nevada desert. With a cool breeze off the Sierra Nevadas, abun-dant farmland, and a river running through it, Yerrington is all but a mi-rage. Throw in good honest family fun, and a few dozen races, and you have ... VORRA. In full compli-ance with BLM and no se-rious injuries to speak of, VORRA is well on its way to another successful year racing in the Nevada desert. The quads left the start-ing line at 6 a.m., with three classes; Bantam, Amateur and Pro. This is the first year VORRA has let the Bantam class par-ticipate in the desert races. Much to everyone's sur-prise the Bantam would be turning lap times less than 10 minutes longer than· the Amateur class. Cars and trucks would make up four classes. Sam Berri got·off to an early lead in his Honda-powered Class 1 car. Sam would hold his position finishing 30 min-utes ahead of the competi-tion. In the Semi-Pro class, newcomer Guy Jessop fin-ished first having drove his #247 buggie down victory lane at his first off road race April of this year. The show must go on! Thanks to Dennis Kordonowy's love of off road racing and pursuit of justice in the desert. After long negotia-tions and several meetings Not too bad a day for Jim Paddock, he slid into a third place finish in the Class 1 Division, seen here turning hard right. Bruce Fields had a pretty good day, he took the Class 8 win at Yerington, he's seen here at speed in his truck. · It wasn't a good day for Dale Smith, he drove his good looking Class 10 car to a dnf at the Yerington festivities. earlier this year, VORRA (Dennis Kordonowy) and BLM (Bureau of Land Man-a.g e m e n t) r e c o n c ii e d a n d formed a contract which insures our right to race in the desert for many years to come. By the looks of things, the little race organization that could is going to be the little race organization that did. VORRA moves on the Lovelock, NV next, a favorite race destination for many of .the drivers. This race is 300 miles long and will be held on the weekend of June 23rd and 24th in and around beauti-ful Lovelock, Nevada, northeast of Reno.

There was a decent entry, especially in the Class 1 group and there was plenty of good racing for all. The McKenzie 400 was run on 50 mile laps, so the big guys and the semi-big guys had eight laps to run while some had six laps to make a race and some had only four laps to run. There were ten Class 1 cars scheduled to run but two of them failed to start the race. At ....... ,.._.... the end of their first lap it was Alexis Gonzales leading the pack, Steve Raskett came along less than two minutes later in second place, Rick Brabec ran in third place, some 20 seconds later, Alexis Staats came along in the fourth spot and Keith Hughes was running in fifth place. Kelly Beal was running sixth and David Jensen was in seventh place. Craig Diller started but failed to finish his first lap. Lap 2 ended and Rick Brabec had moved into first place, setting fast lap for the flll.Pl1111SCIIP .CIII JMR 1001 BENDER WITH THREE ROUND DIES I", l·l/4" AID 1-1/ 2" CAPACITY: 2·1 /2" IIUND TUBE 2" SDUUE TUBE 2" SCI 40 PIPE Will IBID .250 Will 4130 TUBE IP Tl 2" ID 177084 SALE $2,995·00 COME IN AND SEE IUR LARGE SELECTION If METAL TUBING• ONTARIO 1·800/792-9782 lmNDALE 1-800/S0D-PtPE SAN BERNARDINO 1·800/877-4289 BURIIAIII 1-800/ 401>-3448 class along the way, Steve Raskett remained in second place, he was less than three minutes in arrears, Alexis Gonzales had slipped two places and was now running third, Kelly Beal was up two places into fourth place, David Jensen was up two spots into fifth place and Keith Hughes was down a spot, into sixth.

Alexis Gonzales had dis-appeared from the fray. At the halfway point Steve Raskett had taken the lead, Rick Brabec had dropped to second place, he was some four minutes behind the leader, Kelly Beal held on in third place, David Jensen still ran in fourth place and Keith Hughes still ran in fifth place. Fifth lap came to an end and Steve Raskett still held the lead, Rick Brabec held on in second place, he was now two minutes behind the leader, David Jensen was up a spot into third place, Kelly Beal was down a place into fourth and Keith Hughes was still running fifth. When their sixth lap ended Rick Brabec had taken the lead once more, Steve Raskett was now in second place, he was two minutes and change in ar-rears, David Jensen still ran third, Kelly Beal and Keith Hughes still ran fourth and fifth. There were no position changes on the seventh lap. Lap 8, final lap and when the checkers flew it was Rick Brabec taking a hard fought win, Rick averaged almost 60 miles per hour on his travels, Steve Raskett took the silver medal, he was a bit over two minutes behind the leader, Kelly Beal moved into the third place finishing position, Keith Hughes finished fourth and David Jensen was the fifth and final finisher in Class 1. There was only one entrant in Class 3, Kurt Larmee. Kurt gave it his all, but he only got three laps under his belt before he disappeared from the scor-ing charts. Class 7 had two entrants but it wasn't much of a contest. A.J. Rodriguez led the first lap, Nick Tonelli ran in second place, he was almost 50 min-utes behind the leader, fighting some mechanical woes. At the end of the second of eight required laps, A.J. Rodriguez was running all alone. Nick Tonelli had disap-peared from the race. It was a breeze from there on in, Rodriguez motored around for the rest of his laps and com-pleted his race with a 44 mile per hour average speed. There were three trucks en-tered in Class 725 and they too didn't have much of a race. When they completed their first lap it was Frank Gilliland showing the way, Norm Turley came along some 20 minutes later in second place and the other entrant didn't start. At the end of their second of eight required laps it was still Frank Gilliland in the lead, Norm Turley was some ten minutes behind the leader. Lap 3 ended, now Norm Turley was the only truck run-ning, Frank Gilliland had re-tired with terminal troubles. From there on it was only Norm Turley cruising around the course, he had problems on his last lap but he did take the class win. Class 8 only had two trucks entered and one of them failed to make the start. This left Matt Towery to make the eight lap run by himself and al-though Matt had some big problems on his second lap, he carried on and finished his eight required laps at a 41 mile per hour average speed. Class 1200 had seven trucks scheduled to start, but four of them failed to start their first lap so it was Terry Ingold show-ing the way around the first Continued next page Dusty Times

KC N1L1TES MIDNIGHT SPECIAL ■,van Freeman averalls PHOTOS: ALAN MADDEN It was a good night for Bryan Freeman, he swept the 1600 Class and he was the overall winner as well, seen here at speed. The first SNORE Midnight Special took place 30 years ago, it was a nighttime event for many off road enthusiasts, all out for a tough race in the dead of night. This race in the year 2007, was no different, 90 entrants were ready to combat the desert and the blackness of night for a touch of glory. It all took place on the last weekend in June: Technical In-spection and Contingency were held at the Fiesta Hotel and Ca-sino on the Friday evening and although the temperature was up there, it wasn't too bad for the 42 contingency donors in atten-dance or for the drivers and crews who always make the tech wait sort of an impromptu party. Most of the cars had to run five laps for their race, a lap was just over 45 miles and, as usual for a SNORE race, there was a bit of everything on the course to challenge every driver. First off the line was the Un-limited Truck of Curt LeDuc. Curt's son, Todd, was to drive the entire race and although he had some major troubles on his first lap that cost him an hour in time, he still managed to whip around the course for the class win in just a bit under six hours. Next off were the Class 1 cars, there were 11 of them and they started two at a time at 50 sec-ond intervals. When they came around at the end of their first lap it was Rick Ellison in the lead, Ronny Wilson was right there in second place, some 30 seconds behind, T.J. Flores came along in third place, he was al-most five minutes in arrears, Tim Lindsay ran in the fourth spot and Shirley Jergenson was in the fifth spot. Jeff Perkins was run-ning in sixth place, Tom Vanderploeg was seventh, Steve Strobel ran in eighth place, Chuck Rodrick ran ninth and Kevin Curtis was in 10th place. Kevin Colan was among the Todd LeDuc drove dad's Trophy Truck the entire way, he had some problems on his first lap but got it going to take the Unlimited Truck win. missing.

Flores still ran in third place, Tim Lindsay remained in fourth and Shirley Jergenson was still fifth. Tom Vanderploeg was up a spot into sixth place, in spite of having some brake problems, Rett Tyler, who was in for Jeff Perkins was down a spot into sev-enth while Steve Strobel, Chuck Rodrick and Kevin Curtis re-mained eighth, ninth and 10th. When the third lap was over it was Tim Lindsay showing the way, Ronny Wilson had dropped a place and was now in second place, Rick Ellison was down a spot into third place, Rett Tyler had moved up into fourth place and Steve Strobel was up into fifth place. Tom Vanderploeg held on in sixth place, both the tranny and the suspension were acting up, Shirley Jergenson had dropped a few spots into seventh place, Chuck Rodrick was up a spot into eighth and Kevin Curtis also was up a spot, he ran ninth. T.J. Flores was out of the race. Lap 4 came to an end and Tim Lindsay still led the pack in spite of a flat tire along the way, Rick Ellison had moved back into sec-ond place, he was less than a minute behind the leader, Rick Wilson, who was in for Ronny dropped a place into fourth and Rett Tyler was down one place into fifth. Cory Cook, in for Tom Vanderploeg was still in the sixth position, Shirley Jergenson remained in seventh, Chuck Rodrick remained in eighth and Kevin Curtis held on in ninth. The checkers flew for the Class 1 contingent and it was Rick Ellison taking a very nice win. Rick drove it all and had a sticky throttle to contend with as well as a flat tire, Tim Lindsay came in second, he was 10 min-utes behind the class leader, he had dropped a couple of cylin-ders along the way. Rick Wilson took the bronze medal this race, the Wilson's had suffered a couple of flats and some power steering problems along the way, Rett Tyler was up a place, he fin-ished first off the podium, Rett had only a broken limiter strap in problems, Cory Cook finished in fifth place, Shirley Jergenson was up a spot and finished sixth and Chuck Rodrick was the sev-enth and final finisher. Steve Strobel and Kevin Curtis failed to negotiate their final lap. Rick Ellison led lap 1, fell back as far as third place but came back and took the Class 1 win with 10 minutes in hand. Jeff Moore took the Class 10 lead on the third lap and went on for a nice win, seen here headin' out on another lap. There were nine Class 10 cars pawing the ground, waiting to get on the course and up to speed. When they finished their first of five required laps it was Cortney Whipple in the lead, Jeff Moore was second, he was some two minutes behind the leader, J.C. Dean ran third, an-other two minutes back, Ken Flippin, Jr. was in fourth place and Bill Woodward rounded out the top five spots.

"We all want southern Nevadans to have a place where they can enjoy safe riding, while respecting the beauty of our desert," said Clark county commission Chairman Rory Reid. The county envisions a well-managed regional park for an types of users, including ATV, motocross, open unrestricted dunes riding, racing and BMX. Also envisioned, a-n advisory council made up of off-ro_ad riders, which would make recommend•tions to the county commission about policy and recreational matters surrounding the future regional park. commissioner Tom Collins, who represents the area, noted that the dunes have long been popular, "This area has been a favorite place for off-road recreation enthusiasts." With a congressional conveyance of the land it would give riders a permanent home. It's important for the public to get involved and voice their opinion to our Nevada delegation though letter writing or by visiting our web page."

M.0 RE, FREEDOM 250 ~;,-.•Cff•~h••~f:~ McMullln Takes Class ID And The overall B Y STEVE R UDDICK PHOTOS: TRACKS/DE PHOTO Bob Schreiner drove his really good looking truck to the Class 1 win, he's seen here with lots of power on. with a 20 second starting inter-val between each race vehicle. #70 completed the required six laps in 4:39:02 at 47.5 mph, to win first place in Class l; along with sec-ond in the overall field standings for this race. Steve McMullin and Tom Craig shared the driving chores, had no real problems and took the Class 10 win as well as the overall honors. On Lap lat RM 7, Tim Kruger noticed something dragging un-der the truck and mentioned it looked like a limit strap from the right rear. At the end of Lap 2, a pit stop was made for fuel and the determination was made to cut the rest of the strap off and con-tinue. At RM 20 on Lap 3, Bob felt a problem in the left front -thinking it was a flat -and stopped at RM 27 in the middle of the desert; Lloyd got out to find no problem. A pit stop was made at the end of Lap 3 to find the problem - a bad seal in the power steering pump and the loss of all power steering fluid. As #70 left the pits and made their way to RM 6 on Lap 4, they passed the# 117 car that was in first place -but then a miss in the engine developed. UBRT stopped at the remote pit at RM 20 with Stu Thayer, Nick St. George and Tim Bonino to try to find the prob-lem. While stopped, the #117 car BARSTOW, CA: It's July 21, 2007 and I'm back in beautiful Barstow, CA for the M.O.R.E. Freedom 250 Night race. Twelve classes, 91 entries, 45 finishers. It's the infamous Course B at Barstow -36 miles, three check-points, nine road crossings, lots of twists and turns, and M.O.R.E. fun that you can imagine. It cooled down to about 100 degrees for the green flag start at 6 p.m. The Barstow 'breeze' kept blow-ing to keep the course mostly clear, depending on which way you were going at the time; but Start/Finish is always right in the thick of it all. Classes 1, 10, 12 and 1600 raced the full six laps, Classes 5/ 16, 1300, 1400 and 7 did five laps, Classes 7s and 8 did four laps, and Class 11 raced for three laps. OVERALL: Steve McMullin won First Overall in car #1022, and first in Class 10, completing the course in 4:33:37 at 48.4 mph. Bob Schreiner won first place in class 1, and Second Overall, in truck #70, getting the dirt duties done in 4:39:02 at 47.5 mph. Alex Doug Si/cock was a last minute entry but he had a flawless evening, taking the Class 12 honors, he's seen here saving some tire wear. Bud Ward had a great night, only one flat to contend with and a nice gold medal from the Class 9 competition. Dusty Times Danze was Third Overall, and sec-ond in Class 1, in car# 117 -with a total time of 4:44:57 at 46.5 mph. Danze also recorded the fastest Fast Lap of the day on Lap l at 56.3 mph. In 00:39: 14. CLASS l: Six laps. Twelve entries, 11 starters, five finishers, six DNFs and one DNS. Bob Schreiner was at the wheel of #70 this race, with Lloyd Snyder as co-driver and Nick Cerulle as the Main Pit Cap-tain. UBRT Racing started the race in the eighth starting spot when the green flag was dropped, Dave Girdner and Tim Craig shared the steering wheel with marked success, they took Class 1600 honors at the Freedom race. Richard Garavito ran his good looking bug to a nice win in the Class 5-1600 race, he's seen here early on, flyin' high. September 2007 passed and regained the lead. Bob and Lloyd chose to leave and run the truck till it either finished or broke. At the end of Lap 5, a 38 second pit stop was made for fuel and power steering fluid. Lap 6 was clean and with the great ra-dio work done by all parties all night, the #70 truck knew they had a seven minute lead at RM 20 and paced themselves to a five minute lead and the first place in class win; along with second in the overall field standings for this race. "Hats are off to the entire UBRT Racing Team for a fantas-tic job", Schreiner said. "Thanks goes out to all of you for your sup-port!" For a side note, upon cleaning the truck Monday night, Lloyd and Bob decided to find what the miss in the motor was all about. After a thorough in-spection and diagnostics, the problem was found: Not the plugs or wires or distributor cap or bro-ken rocker arm or push rod; af-ter pulling the cylinder heads off, it was a sucked intake valve that bent and stuck wide open. "Thank goodness that the head of the valve didn't break off and make for a catastrophic failure" noted Schreiner. "No wonder it ran like crap the last half of the race." Alex Danze won second place in class in car # 117, completing the course in 4:44:57 at 46.5 mph. Danze also won the Fast Lap honors on Lap 1 at 56.3, in 00:39: 14. Rick Wilcoxson wasn't that far off the pace in car # 127, getting the third place win in 4:49:52 at 45. 7 mph. Jennifer Clemisen, from Cypress, CA., found the finish line in 5:22:11 at 41.l mph, to win fourth place in the Damzel #132 car. "Tackling Barstow and doing all six laps was a great challenge", Clemisen said. Clemisen had a good run for two laps, but then had an unsched-uled stop at the start of Lap 3 be-cause her co-driver was getting sick. At the end of Lap 3, #132 had a flat with the jack failing to work. Other than that, the car ran great and Clemisen drove all six laps by herself this time because her husband and regular co-driver, Tony Nguyen, snapped his leg racing motorcross. Ouch. Levy Rockhill made it to the finish line in 7:03:00 at 31.3 mph, to win fifth place in car # 166. CLASS 10: Six laps. Seven entries, seven starters, four finishers, three DNFs.

"We didn't have any tires out in the pits be-cause our guys had already been sent out for the other team cars. I drove all six laps and my rider for Laps 1-4 was Valerie LeDuc; then Vince Collins got in for the last two laps. We stopped every two laps for fuel and had no prob-lems all day, besides not having enough lights on the car." Noth-ing like being blinded by the night, and winning, too. CLASS 1600: Six laps. Eighteen starters, 12 finishers, six DNFs. 30 Racing's Dave Girdner and Tim Craig shared the driving duties of the team's #1622 car and topped 17 competitors in the class to earn their fourth straight win of 2007 at the MORE Freedom 250 in Barstow. The cousins were fourth overall and took the "Pro 1600" crown as well. Based in Barstow, California, the Craig/Girdner family has been racing since the 1970's. Over the past 30 years, dozens of family members have competed in a wide variety of off road racing. Since 2001, third-generation racers Dave Girdner and cousin, Tim Craig, have raced in the highly competitive 1600 class, sharing seat time with their uncle/dad, Tom Craig. Starting from the number 13 position at the green flag, Craig passed nine other 1600 cars and turned the fastest lap of the night for the class on the first lap; at 49.5 mph in 00:44:38. Craig picked up another position on the second lap and continued to close the gap on the other cars, as night fell across the desert starting their third lap. This is where the team's "home field ad-vantage" became very clear -and it was shortly after nightfall that # 1622 took the lead in class, with the reigning champ Lorenzo Rodriguez (#1600) in hot pursuit. After turning three very fast -and very consistent laps -Craig turned the car over to his cousin Girdner for the remaining three laps. Girdner settled in to a steady pace and retook the lead, as Rodriguez got disoriented and ended up running backwards on the course. with a 4+ minute lead on Rodriguez, Girdner was able to settle into a more conservative pace and brought car #1622 to the checkered flag in 4:46:32 at 45.2 mph, for the team's fifth vic-tory in their last six races. Lorenzo Rodriguez won sec-ond place in class in car # 1600; in 4:56:48 at 44.6 mph. Greant Fluegge got to the finish line in 5:03:21 at 43. 7 mph, in car #1610, to win third place in class. Kevin DeNault won fourth place in class in car #1618, just 00:01:20 behind Fluegge; in 5:04:21 at 43.5 mph. Christian Carr got to the finish line in 5: 10:21 at 43.5 mph. Christian Carr got to the finish line in 5: 10:46 to win fifth place in class; at 42.6 mph. Sixth place went to Ray Files in car #1605, complet-ing the course in 5:21:40 at 41.2 mph. Mike Ward drove car #1673 to a seventh place victory in 5:23:41 at 40.9 mph. "The car is brand new and it handled great", Ward said after the race. "Mark Brister started the race and drove fast and consistent laps. he handed the car over, and I drove the rest of the laps. It was a a great race for a very new car." Joey Westhoff got the eighth place win in car #1691, covering the dis-tance in 5:31:26 at 40.0 mph. Terry Tolbert was next at the fin-ish line for ninth place, in car #1697.

Dusty Times went to Robert Ledsinger on Lap 1 in truck #1427, covering the dis-tance in 00:52:56 at 41. 7 mph. CLASS 7: Five laps. Two entries/starters, no finishers, one DNF, one OTL. Todd Ormnston made it through four laps in truck #772, before he just ran out of time to complete the last lap within the eight hour race time limit.

Eight entries, seven starters, five finishers, two DNFs and one DNS. Bud Ward won first place in class in car #975, getting the required five laps done in 5: 10: 12 at 35.6 mph. Ward summed up his race this way: "Saturday night started great. We staged in the rear of the pack, the track was rougher than typical Barstow, but that made it fun. The first lap was uneventful. The second lap was another good lap and we made great time, but near the end of the lap when the sun had gone down, the connec-tion on my front lights had come unplugged. I was lucky to have my chase crew at Hodge Road so I could have them tweak the plug. The rest of the lap went great and so did the beginning of the third, but by the end of the third lap I in class and came in 12th place in car # 1672; 7: 14:57 at 30.5 mph. "Wow, what a night!", Lind-say said. "My problems started about an hour before the green and only got worse. Thanks to Tom Malloy for the repair to the fuel cell that got me to the start. I rolled pretty hard about Mile 30 on the first lap. I definitely had my bell rung. I want to thank Mike Ward in car #1673 for stop-ping to check and for signaling help. I know you lost at least a few minutes and maybe a position. On my second lap I rolled it again, same place. Guess I didn't learn my lesson. After that, it was fairly uneventful, and I finally fin-ished about 1:30 a.m. Jim and M.O.R.E. -thanks for a great and challenging course." CLASS 5/ 16: Five laps. Five entries, five starters, five finishers. Richard Garavito won first place in car #555, covering the required five laps in 4:44:39 at 38.8 mph.

Aspel, from Hesperia, CA., got the five laps completed in 5:09:58 at 35.6 mph. "We had some troubles on our first lap but we were shortly back on our way", Aspel said. "We were a little far behind at that point, but came back strong for a second place fin-ish. We also had some of the best, cleanest racing ever with the car. Thanks Jim and Ron for another great race. Great job guys. That was a blast!" Mike Boon won third place in car #589, in 5: 14:48 at 35.1 mph. Art "The TECH Dude" Savedra made it a close race in car #599, getting to the checkered flag in 5: 16:01 at 34.9 mph; only 7 3 seconds behind Boon.

Thanks to every-one out there watching the road crossings and checkpoints. And "Thanks" again Jim and the whole M.O .R.E. family for put-ting on a great event."

Main Pit changed my flat, filled the cell, and my wife, Nicole, had gotten in; and we were back on course in less than 10 minutes. Besides being a bit worried about jumping the Ant Hill, Nicole did great and I am proud that she was able to hold on for the remainder of the race.

We had a visual on all the cars in our class and were just cruising. three laps in Barstow is tough on an 11 car and we knew we needed to take our time", Ptasinski said. "We had a few issues on Lap 2 -I hit the first road crossing a little too fast in the dust and nosed it into the other side; should have been a great "Kodak moment' but we felt it ... and buried it in the sand. With the help of a few spectators, we were back in it after only losing a few minutes; thanks guys! Our stop for fuel was quick; ACME's the best! Lap 3 -the course was very loose with lots of sand. Up in College Hills, we were in dust following a truck for a few miles when two cars caught us who were dicing and honking. I tried to give them more room and not realizing I was crabbing along the side of a loamy hill -and buried it again. We spent forever dig-ging and trying, and finally Jeff decided the only chance was to back it down the hill. .. I stood by and watched while he slid it backwards down about 200 feet of sand into a ravine. I got in and we took off after losing about 45 minutes total. Thanks to our pits for waiting for us, once again ACME Rocks! The rest of the lap was clean except for passing a few trucks that didn't want to move. "Thanks" to Jim and the group at M.O.R.E. for a great race; but next time, two laps in Barstow is plenty for an 11 car!" That's a wrap for this Ace Re-porter. The M.O.R.E. Freedom 250 Night Race is done. Congrats to the winners; condo-lences to the rest. It was dusty and dirty, and the desert ex-tracted a heavy toll.

malifornia ally «Cries CRS Fall Preview PHOTOS: MOTORSPORT MEMORIES Blake Yoon and Andy Goubarev seen here at last year's Gorman Ridge Rally in their Subaru WRX ST/. Summer is here and the California Rally Series (CRS) would like to cake a moment to tell our friends about the rest of our 2007 season, so that they might be able to gee out and experience performance stage rally for themselves. The following four events round out the season and competition for championship points will be nothing short of fearsome. Rally racing in the sou th-west restarts in August, after a brief summer hiatus, during which teams traded pace notes, water bottles, and dirt roads for romance novels, margaritas, and swimming pools. Well, we hope they got some R&R over the break, but if there's one thing co be said about rallyistas, it's that their work is never finished. June and July present two solid months for CRS competitors to slow things down and concentrate on bringing the cars back up to tip-top shape back at the fort, where they have all their re-sources at the ready. Some teams were fortunate in that their cars only need minimal repairs after Rim of the World in Lancaster, CA back in May; others not so much, likely feel-ing two months is simply not enough time, but all want to bring their "A-Game" to the next event. The remainder of the season pretty much cakes place within a triangle drawn between Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Phoe-nix. These upcoming events feature a variety of roads and unique challenges for the teams, so there's no way of knowing who will stand victo-rious at season's end. If you've never attended a true stage rally before, consider coming out to one of the following events before the season is over. Organizers generally try to set aside at least• one area where spectators can watch the cars race by, but the best op-po r tun i ti es for seeing the teams in their element come through volunteering at the Page 46 event.

Prescott Rally in the past will tell you, there are a number of stages which are almost the stuff of legends in the southwest rally community. A number of the more popular Prescott stages are laid out in such fashion as to be completely different when run in both directions, which is done frequently. The Prescott Rally website describes "First View": "When run to the North it starts out above the mining town of Jerome and runs on an old narrow-gauge railroad bed. Exposures seem bigger than they are here but the views are amazing (for co-drivers only). An elevation drop of nearly 2000 feet brings you down to the Verde River. When run to the South it becomes a hill climb challenge, finishing on the quick railroad bed." Be in Prescott on this weekend in October and you are almost cer-tain to hear mention of "Perkinsville."

[-IA-JA]1>ll)i BYMR BNA Hello racers -and fans alike. Due to a computer glitch (hard drive crash) the report I was going to write on the Baja 500 stats will have to wait until next month. Instead we will speak of the future. Baja Pits will be running one pit at the upcoming Primm 300 race in Septem-ber. Contact Carlos at U.S. Wheels for info on that if you need help. US Wheels will be on contin-gency row as well and you can talk to Carlos and Steny there about this race and the upcoming Baja 1000. Concerning the Baja 1000. Baja Pits, along with Baja Huskys are run-ning another free, pre run pit stop, in support of all pre runners sometime the middle or end of October. We hav_e picked a tentative location and are now wait-ing to see the official Score racecourse map. Our tentative location right now is between San Quentin and Cocos Cor-ner, out in the wilderness. As with last years Baja 1000 pit, we will have the familiar Red and White Husqvarna awning up, plenty of water, shade, a place to park your vehicles while you pre run, lunch Page so each day at noon and new for the Baja 1000, fuel to s.e ll i n 1-3 g a 11 o n q u a n t i -ties. This is to help those bikes and vehicles get to their next destination or out to Hwy 1 to their chase trucks. Steny, our Motorcycle and Quad Di-rector, will be running this free pit stop as he did at last years Baja 1000 free pre run pit. Three days (Friday-Sunday) and a whole lot of fun he says! For the 2007 Score Baja 1000, Baja Pits, along with Locos Mocos, are looking to run 23 pits. We currently have 24 pit cap-tains and crews lined up, so that objective is out of the way. Prices for Baja Pits members (Member-ship is. $50.00 per calen-dar year for the ROR/ DOR) are as follows. For bikes and quads, the price is $895.00 and includes up to 4 gallons of 100 unleaded octane race fuels at each pit you use. If you need dry breaks, then you need to provide Baja Pits will two (2) dry break units in good condi-tion with stands as well or rent two cans from us for $100.00 each. Each pit has spare tires and tubes for bikes to use if you should shred a tire. We have been receiving referrals from Team Honda since June for this race. Don't delay before we fill up. Contact Steny at 619-851-9105 or by email at for any motorcycle or quad questions or needs 103 PRESS LANE SUITE 4 CHULA VISTA, CA 91910 that you may have. For all Full Service ve-hicles, the price to pit is $ 7 9 5-. 0 0 w / o a n y fu e I. Race fuel is $8.95 per gal-lon for 110 octane, which includes the hauling charge to take it to the pit stop. We will only be us-ing two octanes of fuel for this race. These are 100 Unleaded and 110 Leaded race fuels. Each team us-ing full service pits will need to provide Baja Pits ten (10) good condition, 11 gallon dump cans for loan during the race. Re-member to give us good condition cans. A poor dump can given, could be the one we are using for your own vehicle as well. Vehicle Emergency Ser-vice is $350.00. You can also purchase just one, two or three pits at a small individual price if that's all you need as well. Any-more than four pits though, you have to buy them all. Go tQ our web site at and download our Race Support Application for the 2007 Baja 1000. Fill it in and mail it back to us with either your deposit or full fees paid. Baja Pits does have a cut off for the number of vehicles al-lowed, so don't delay. Get you entry in before we draw the line. You can call Carlos Orozco at 619-596-8033 or email him at Carlos for any questions you need an-swered concerning pitting.

We hope you are enjoying your summer and are be-ing safe as well. Our meet-ing locations and dates are changing for the fall. Check back on our web site for the new location and dates in San Diego starting with the Septem-ber date. Until next month then, adios from the Baja Pits Race Team. El Prez Sez ... Ain't No Wahzoo Well, took a two month hiatus from writ-ing our column, some-thing the real Wahzoo didn't do and why I "ain't no Wahzoo", it's time to get back to the business at hand. I thought that it would be cool to direct a few interesting points out to our non-Checker friends who are reading th is. First off, if you are a racer and run indepen-dently you need to keep reading. If you love the desert and working on race cars, keep reading. If you like being associated with the very best, keep reading. The point I am making here is that the Checkers Off-Road Rac-ing team is the longest running and most versa-tile racing support club hands down! I know that is a seriously bold thing to say, but it is true. There is not one other pit support group anywhere that pits all the major sanctioned races. We run and support: SCORE, B.l.T.D., M.O.R.E., M.D.R., SNORE, CORR, and most recently the Pike's Peak race where one of our drivers set a world record in a Pro truck. Now I challenge anyone to find a race sup-port club that has our history, roots, stamina and longevity and will run wherever that's a race and we have drivers that want to run it. Each month I end my attempts at writing this column with an invitation to any-one who believes that they have what it takes to excel in this sport and wishes to do so with the best to join us at any of our weekly meetings in North Hollywood or visit with us in any of our many pit locations at darn near every desert race run. Hell you couldn't run a car across El Mirage with the S.C.T.A. without running into a dozen or more of us. We have .guys running circles on pavement at Irwindale and on the dirt in Ventura. See what I mean about versatility? Longevity you ask? Well, we were derived and founded by the Checkers bike club and its original members almost 39 years ago. The Bike club dates back to 1945, beat that! Again I want to point out that I'm not writing this so much as a pat on our back (well, may\;>e a little one), but to encourage se-rious racers to consider the benefits of being a part of something great and carrying on the proud tradition of what it means to be a part of the history of the Checkers. We have had several races since my last article and it would be fut-ile for me to try and retrace them all so I am going to hit on some of the high-lights of "what's up wit da Checkers" We have been crankin' out some great meetings lately with some excellent guest par-ticipation,. Sal Fish stopped by after the Baja race and spent some great quality time with us to the point where the res-taurant we meet at closed while we were all still talking with Sal. Myself and many others on hand had a chance to just sit one on one and talk per-sonally with Sal whom many of us have known for so long, but rarely have this type of an op-portunity because he is so busy at the races. Bob Bowers came to see us an-other night and discuss the Off Road Hall of Fame in Reno, Nevada. Bob has been a close friend to many of us for a long time and did a Speed Channel special with us on our 25th anni-versary celebration held at the Gold Coast in Ve-gas. Bob is one of the founders of the museum in Reno, along with Rod Hall (whose two sons are Checkers) and was most enthusiastic in telling us about all that this won-derfu 1 museum has to of-fer. I can say first hand that it is worth many vis-its, a great place to record the history we all make and love. Casey Dusty Times

Folks is coming to give us the run down on what to expect at the Vegas to Reno race. He will be at our August 15th meeting. We have nine cars en-tered in that race. We have been reincarnating the weekly raffles and having some fun with the Sergeant at Arms. As al-ways, each meeting is filled with great stories from the drivers and pitters following each race. We've started plan-ning out our pit strate-gies for the Baj a 1000 to support our 10 entries. We are set for the Primm race with seven ca rs en-tered and four pits for support. We are getting everyone pumped up about our eighth annual Checkers Off Road Raffle. Don't forget that some lucky person will win both the 2007 Honda CRF 70 and the 2007 Honda EU 2000 genera-tor at the Score Baja 1000 drawing at the Lake Elsinore Hotel and Ca-sino on Saturday, Septem-ber 29th. We had our an-nual Checker summer party over the Father's Day weekend in Cal-City. Absolutely one of our finer parties to date with a couple hundred family members and friends at-tending and enjoying the all day BBQ and enter-tainment, great poker run course, motor cycle melt-down and night time bon-fire. I would like to thank Andy Fricke for heading up the party committee and doing such a fantas-tic job along with the help from James Connolly and Mark Nacke. Back tracking to my earlier comments about Pike's Peak, I want to congratulate Mike Childress for his amazing run on the mountain to obtain the new record for Pro Trucks. Mike ran the 12.2 mile run in 11.59 min. in Tom Koch's Pro truck with Tom's son, Joe, riding shotgun. I also want to acknowledge our drivers leading the points in their classes in the SCORE series, Rich (Stretch) Severson and Mark Growe. Just a quick note to all members, "DASH PLAQUES", gottum! Lots of them back dated thru last year so come and gettum! Once again I wish to extend our invitation to anyone interested in be-coming a Checker to come visit us, we meet ev-ery Wednesday night at 8:00pm at Victoria's Ristorante, 10901 Victory Blvd., North Hollywood, CA 91606. Remember ... El Prez Sez ... See Ya in The Dez. Dusty Times ORBAANDBRC CHALLENGE NEWLY-FORMED "RANGERS FOR RESPONSIBLE RECREATION" TO INCLUDEOHV COMMUNITY IN THEIR EFFORTS TO ADDRESS OHV-RELATED ISSUES ON PUBLIC LANDS. BAKERSFIELD, CA (June 29, 2007) -The Off-Road Busi-ness Association (ORBA) and the BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) have learned that the Public Employees for Environ-mental Responsibility (PEER), recently announced the forma-tion of Rangers for Respon-sible Recreation, which, ac-cording to PEER is a "coalition of more than a dozen of America's most seasoned law enforcement and natural re-source management special-ists." PEER and the newly-formed organization are asking for a "National Call to Action to address law enforcement threats on public lands." PEER has expressly singled out OHV users as the dominant threat and the group most in need of more aggressive law en-forcement action. ORBA and BRC take issue with PEER's attempt to make OHV users the villains and scapegoats for the many prob-lems that currently exist on America's public lands. PEER and the "Rangers" fail to rec-ognize that the vast majority of OHV use that occurs on pub-lic lands is done in a respon-sible manner. ORBA and BRC challenge both groups to join the OHV community in a col-laborative effort to addres.s rogue users of all types who choose to recreate irresponsi-bly and damage the resources we all wish to preserve for fu-ture generations. ORBA and BRC are very fa-miliar with the challenges in-volved with OHV recreation on public lands. Only by working together will we find solutions to these problems that will re-sult in managed off-road recre-ation and environmental pro-tection. "This looks like more of the same crisis mongering from PEER and we challenge this new group to work with the OHV community instead of demanding massive closures via lawsuit," states Brian Hawthorne, BRC's Public Lands Policy Director. Bill Dart, Director of Land Use for ORBA said, "The solu-tion to this problem is not to demonize each other, as PEER has done by using the term "Wreckreation," but to work to-gether on these issues to safe-guard the future of responsible OHV recreation and protect the environment." One solution not mentioned on the PEER website is to make the areas cur-rently available for OHV recre-ation more user friendly by pro-viding maps, trail guides and good on the ground signage. These solutions cost money and we would like PEER and Rang-ers for Responsible Recreation to join us in asking for the ap-propriate funds to manage these recreation areas so that re-source damage is reduced or eliminated. Bringing former land man-agers and law enforcement per-sonnel to the table in an effort to solve these problems is an interesting concept, especially since these same folks largely created the situation that con-fronts us today. These officials are well aware that the agencies they used to work for did not respond to the need for in-creased OHV recreational op-portunities. In essence, these agencies, by directing funds away from OHV recreation and instituting one closure after another, have caused many of the problems that PEER and the Rangers now want to blame on OHV users. In order to find a solution to these complicated and often controversial issues we need to understand the problem. In a recent Draft Environmental Im-pact Statement (DEIS) the BLM states that between 1980 and 2001, there has been an in-crease of 108 percent of the reg-istered OHVs in California. The DEIS goes on to state that between 1994 and 2001, there has been an increase of 74 per-cent of street licensed four-wheel drive vehicles. However, during this same period of time -1980 to 2001-there has been a 48 percent decrease in the amount of land available for OHV recreation. This has re-sulted in the "ghetto-ization" of vehicle recreation, with more and more people pushed onto smaller parcels of land. It is no wonder that resource values in these areas have suffered; it is also no wonder that the emer-gence of camping and OHV "ghettos" has led to trespassing and additional resource damage by those who do not wish to comply with the increasingly stringent limitations on use We can either ignore these facts and continue to watch outdoor recreation deteriorate, or we Bolt in or weld in one _Piece uni-ball cups, 1', 1 ¼ , 1 ½' Billet Spare Tire Lock & Mount Heim Joints, Uniballs & High Misalignment Spacers can find new and better ap-proaches to the land use chal-lenges that currently confront all who enjoy visiting the deserts, mountains, and forests of this country. We invite PEER and the Rangers to join us in taking the latter course. ORBA is a national trade as-sociation composed of off-road related businesses united to promote common goals that support the prosperity and growth of the off-road industry. The BlueRibbon Coalition is a national recreation group that champions responsible use of public and private lands, and encourages individual en-vironmental stewardship. It represents over 10,000 indi-vidual members and 1,200 or-ganization and business mem-bers, for a combined total of over 600,000 recreationists na-tionwide. 1-800-258-3742 ---Meg Grossglass Media Relations & Land Use ORBA -the Off-Road Busi-ness Association 32383 Perigord Rd Winchester, CA 92596 Phone 951.926.1953 Cell 951.415.1869 Corporate 661.323.1464 Office 1610 W.
