Trall Notes ••• FINAL FLAG -Sadly, "Radio Bob" Hynes founder of RLH Communications and "BFG Radio Relay" passed away late Friday afternoon August 15, 2008. Complications from pneumonia se.nt him to the big radio tower in the sky. He is survived by his wife Mary and children Kenny, Glen and Lori. Funeral arrangements have not yet been finalized. "Radio Bob", the skinny little radioman with a voice larger than a gorilla provided radio communications for more than 28 years to the off-road racing community. Over the years, RLH Communications has provided radio equipment to thousands of race teams for all types of sporting events. Sometimes cranky, he was always willing to go the extra mile to help someone. Bob loved all types of racing events, but his favorite was the off-road races. H e was so committed to helping racers, that he was giving orders from his hospital bed until last week. Condolences should be sen t to: Mary Hynes 3633 Peach Blossom National City, C A . 91950. RED FACE DEPARTMENT: Where did we go wrong? Steve Ruddick did a nice story on the M.O.R.E. Trail Glow Freedom 250. But, the proper story never got printed, a gross miscalculation on our part and, on top of that, th e C lass 3 winner, Kurt Larmee, who runs a black Ford Bronco was somehow overlooked and never appeared in the story that never appeared. Your editor missed Kurt in the official results, where he is listed under Class 5, vehicle number 302. Right name, right number and missed by all the people who should know better. O ur apologies go out to Kurt Larmee and all of his sponsors and crew. We promise to peruse the results more carefully and eliminate this kind of error. Ed. You can read the full story on page 42. n ID YOU KNOW! - Model T suppliers are still helping Ford put the world on wheels. They made the carburetors, spark plugs, windshields, sheet metal and bearings for the "car that put the world on wheels." As Henry Ford's Model T reaches its 100th anniversary, Ford Motor Company is also celebrating the teamwork and ingenuity of the original Model T suppliers that are still part of Ford's extended family. Ford continues to do business with nearly 20 automotive suppliers involved in the Model T, which first rolled off the assembly line at the Piquette Avenue Plant in Detroit in 1908~ For more information, contact Todd Nissen at or 313-322-4898. LABOR DAY AT CRANDON - A capacity crowd at the 2008 BorgWarner World Championship Off-Road Races witnessed the biggest off-road racing spectacle in the history of the sport, some surprising upsets, dominating wins and more over Labor Day weekend at legendary Crandon International Off-Road Raceway. Skyjacker sponsored Ford race trucks of PRO racers Scott Taylor, Belvidere, Ill., and Ross Hoek, Holland, Mich., ruled the roost at Crandon, while Jeff Kincaid's Traxxas Forest C ounty Potawatomi Toyota also excelled throughout the final weekend on the Lucas Oil World Series of Off-Road Racing Tour 2008. Taylor laid claim to the off-road racing's most cherished prize by winning the 2008 BorgWarner Shootout. Taylor, a previous winner of the notable silver and gold BorgWarner Cup in 2002, repeated with a dominating performance in the final race of the World Championship weekend. Already the sole racer to have competed in all 14 BorgWarner Shootouts, Taylor sped to victory in his 900 HP PRO 2WD pickup besting a field of 20 other competitor s winning the 10-lap romp over Crandon's 1.5 mile track in 15:06. Taylor reigns as the mythical "King of Off-Road Racing" until the 15th race next year during Crandon Raceway's gala 40th anniversary celebration. Taylor outdistanced nine PRO 4x4 race machines that have dominated previous Shootout races. Taylor is the only driver to have won the race in a 2-wheel drive pickup and now he has accomplished the feat twice. In a race conceived for PRO 4x4 race trucks, for the first time in history no single 4x4 reached the podium. Runner-up in the event was Hoek's PRO 2WD Skyjacker Ford while Da~ Vanden Heuvel, Appleton, Wisc., who sewed up the Lucas Oil World Series of Off-Road Racing PRO 2W D class championship over the weekend, placed third. The first WSOR R Super Truck to take the checkers was Ben Wandahsega in his Forest County Potawatomi Toyo Tires Chevy 2-wheel drive truck. Not to be overshadowed was a stellar performance by Jeff Kincaid -the country's most well-known PRO Light Pickup racer. Kincaid outgunned 10 other competitors to win the 2nd annual Forest County Potawatomi "Decision at Sundown" PRO Light Pickup Challenge Cup r ace that kicked off the '08 World Championship weekend. He came back to win the final round of WSORR racing on Sunday, capping his s.eason in the Page & l>Esmrr STEEL MoroRSPORTS 1863 COMMANDER DRIVE LAKE HAVASU CITY, AZ 86403 (928) 855-2208 &sn!BN Oftl.RoAD RAaN'G ~.

With Norman earning his first career SCORE Trophy-Truck race win and Roeseler his second, the duo covered the rugged 288-mile race in four hours, 50 minutes and 20 seconds, averaging a ground-pounding 59.52 miles per hour while covering the four laps over the rugged 72-mile desert race course in Primm, Nev., 45 miles south of Las Vegas. Las Vegas Brian Collins not only closed the gap during the final lap, but actually took the lead by nearly a minute on corrected time before two flats in the final 10 miles put him back into second place at the checkered flag in the No. 12 Collins Motorsports Mopar Dodge Raml500. Collins finished in4:52:08, averaging 59.15 mph. Keeping SCORE Trophy-Trucks from sweeping the podium was the All German Motorsports unlimited Class 1 BMW-powered Jimco open-wheel desert race car driven by Germany's Armin Schwarz and Martin Christensen of Escondido, Calif. With Schwarz starting and driving the first half of the race and Christensen bringing their car across the finish line in 4:58:54, averaging 57.81mph. It was the second Class 1 win of the year for Schwarz, a former World Rally Championship series star, and Christensen, a veteran SCORE desert racer. Las Vegas' Bekki Wik and her husband Adam Wik's Honda-powered Bunderson was the fastest during the morning section of the race, winning Class 10 in 5: 18: 15, and they also finished 11th overall in the race. Bekki Wik, a two-time SCORE Class 1-2/1600 season point champion and one of only two female drivers of record in the race, started second physically and led by over 10 minutes after the first lap of 1: 17 :05 which was the fastest lap of the day in their class.

~1Mtm~~ Vl!GAS TO Rl!NO Rick D. Johnson overalls BY ]UDY SM/TH PHOTOS: TRACKS/DE PHOTO It was a great win for Rick Johnson at the Best In The Desert Vegas To Reno Race, his Ford Trick Truck performed flawlessly. In a "come from behind" perfor-mance that caught his competition unaware, Rick 0 . Johnson drove his Ford Trick Truck the entire distance, to win the Best In The Desert's point-to-point Vegas to Reno event over-all in the time of?:41:43. While the race has never actually been from Las Vegas to Reno (even way back in '83 when it first ran), it has been longer than it was this year. Thanks to the concerns of some green-minded folks, who thought the racers might impact the Amargosa Toad which lives in the creek in Beatty, the race was short-ened. Rather than starting at Johnny (just north of Pahrump), this year it started six and a half miles north of Beatty, cutting off about 90 miles. Those 90 miles will probably never be missed by anyone who's races there, being many miles of deep silt, and the area where most of the race's drop outs occur, according to Casey Folks, CEO of the BITD. In order to bring the total race mileage back up closer to what it's been in the past (540), there were some addi-tions made further north. But the total length of the course was still only 455 miles. Technically it was the Beatty to Dayton race, and still a darned good event. On the subject of changes: it was inevitable anyway. Mr. Folks told the Dusty Times that he'd been plan-ning to change the start from Johnny to Beatty for the 2009 edition. This has just moved his schedule up a year. His plans also include making it a 1000 mile race in '09, by circling through the Beatty area more than once. That could make some details, like chasing and pitting, easier. For this year, once past Beatty it was business as usual. The local gen-darmes were out in force to keep the hustling chase crews honest and somewhere close to the legal speed limit. Empty police cars were parked in the outskirts of some of the small towns, and even though everyone knew they were probably empty, they still served to slow folks down, just in case. The pits were mostly acces-sible by chase crews, but up at the The brothers Weyhrich, Gary and Mark took the Class 1 honors with apparent ease, their Jimco seen here at speed. "top" of the course there were a couple that were so far off the paved highway that it was necessary to have a stationary pit. The weather was warm, hot even, and very dry. Some clouds prom-ised rain sometime in the future, but no rain fell on the course this year. The Time Trials, held on Thurs-day, determined the start order of Class 1500 (Unlimited Open Wheel) and the Trick Trucks. All together, there were 60 of them, in the com-bined two classes. The top times in the Trials were taken by B.J. Baldwin, Andy McMillin, Brad Etter, Josh Daniel and Steve Croll. Less than nine seconds separated the first from the fifth place. A little over a minute and 23 seconds separated the fast time from the 48th place qualifier. It was difficult to predict the even-tual winner. The Bikes and Quads started at about 6:40 a.m. The first 91 car and truck starters went off the start line at one minute intervals beginning at 10:35 a.m. It seemed to take for-ever. The remaining 109 went off at 30 seconds intervals. It took until one o'clock to get everyone started. It was clear and hot, and except for one dust devil that tried to collapse the Red Bull arch at the start line, calm. That early portion of the course, and the staging area, had been heavily watered in deference to the neighbors, who'd not wanted dust. (Ed. Note: When we report on an event like this, we always hope to be able to tell our readers who led each class at various points along the way. We do this by using the promoter's checkpoint times. How-ever, for this event we can't do that. While the cars and trucks were all equipped with transponders, those are actually recording only at the start and the finish,. Interim times were taken by hand by BITD per-sonnel. Since there is no longer a corps of radio people to transfer that information, much of it didn't get back to the timing and scoring bus. Thus, we don't know who led which class en route. Our informa-tion is not complete enough to let us guess. Sorry.) The finish line gurus were listen-ing to their various radios, checking the lritrack information and trying to predict which of the Trick Trucks would get there first. Since B.J . Baldwin started first, and Andy McMillin started second, right be-hind him, the largest number of bets was on one of them to win overall. Kyle Conlon throws a bit of silt on his way up north, with help from Steve Eugenio they took the Class 10 honors. Curt LeDuc and son Kyle took top honors in the Class 8000 fracas, they had many hours on their competition at the finish line. But most of them had it wrong. ' They forgot to pay attention to the Class 1500 cars, and they altogether forgot about Rick 0. Johnson. Starting 16 minutes behind McMillin and 17 minutes behind Baldwin, Johnson was moving steadily, having no serious prob-lems. He drove all the way, and had only one flat tire, but was able to have it changed atthe Top Gun pit at Mile 381. Johnson, who's been racing for less than a year, appar-ently looked like a newcomer to most observers. They forgot, or didn't know that he actually started racing in 1983 (in Class 9) and has been competing in the Protrucks for years, very successfully,. It was not a huge step into the Trick Truck. He's been "fine tuning" his Ford for this season, and says "there's still some more in it." Johnson said his trip was "absolutely perfect", and he "was really conservative in the bad stuff." His time for the day: 7:41:43.

Jonathan Swift had a great race, he drove his Ford to the Class 7200 win, he's seen here racing north. with a "dying transmission", so the crew changed it, which took an hour. By then the course was "extremely dusty". Their time was 9:37: 19. Bob Schreiner drove the start and finish in his Trick Truck, and Lloyd Snyder did the middle part. They finished 15th, in their mid-sized Chevy Colorado. This was their first time in this event and they thought it was a "fantastic course". They've been racing the MORE Series in the Barstow area. Mark Weyhrich was 16th in his Ford, and he reported an early flat and a jack that failed and cost him a half hour. Then, about six miles the "other side of Top Gun" his left front corner broke. He "pieced it together" on the course, and then limped to his pit, where they did a better job. But they used bolts that were too small. So Mark drove in slowly, and in spite of that, the front end broke again, about four miles out from the finish. That meant he drove the rest of the way in with the front arm, wheel and tire all folded in under the front end. It didn't steer well. He said it was "a good day -good course." His time was 10:25:59. In 17th place it was the team of Spencer Beal, Brian Sherry, David Pedregon and Lance Goldstone. They had one flat, "helped pull a lot of people out" and finished in 10:58:38, the last in the class to get there. Bryant Hibbs, tech maven for Brian Burgess drove fast and steady, he took the Class 1100 win in his Moulton and had more than an hour in hand when the checkers flew. the Protrucks, rode all the way, and they said that Hibbs was the reason they finished. There was one other Trick Truck at the finish line. The Chevrolet of Alan Pflueger, which started a few minutes late, got to the finish area at about 11:30 p.m. They said they'd had "some technical problems." Their gear box over-heated and they broke a rear axle. When he saw that they had no chance for a good finish, Pflueger got out of the driver's seat and led Mike Emerson, who usually navi-gates, drive the final 200 miles. Mike called it an "unbelievable race." Alan, who rode while Mike drove, called it "terrifying." They are listed as non-finishers, and we don't know if that was an error, or if they were somehow penalized. In Class 1500 first place belonged to Gary Weyhrich, who was second overall in his Jimco. Weyhrich, who said he'd put some "new springs" on his Chevy powered car, finished in the time of7:49:23, less than eight minutes behind Johnson. He said, "This is my favorite race." In second it was B.J. Richardson in a Chevy powered Bunderson. He said he "had a#&!#* day". His car had over-heated; he'd had two rear flats, and had no rear brakes for the last 100 miles. His time was 7:58:38. In third it was Steve Raskett and Jake Johnson in a Porter with a Kroyer Chevy motor. They'd had only one flat tire all day long, and they'd had to blow out their air filters.

That took an hour each time. For whatever reason, it didn't happen when Dondel was driving. Daniel is fairly new to rac-ing, and surprised a lot of folks by qualifying fourth fastest. He was competing with some very experi-enced and talented folks, so it'll be interesting to see what he does once he has more miles under his belt. Dondel says the top speed of the car is 137 mph. Their time for the racer was 11: 19:32. In 15th place it was Chuck Dempsey and Mark Levrett, who had electrical problems with their HMS, and the belts flew off also. Their time was 11:31:24. Sixteenth place went to Lee Criner and Don Vaughn, who finished at 1 a.m. They said they had "Lotsa problems!" including the fact that their floor pan came off. They lost their shift control lever also, and did ten miles in first gear. Their time was 13:41: 12. Finishing 17th it was Brad Etter and Dale Ebberts who'd had the lead at Mile 300. They had a flat, and then lost the outer c.v./hub assembly and it took three hours to fix it. They had a flat, and then lost the outer c.v./hub assembly and it took three hours to fix it. That was during Etter's stint. He'd got in the car at Mina. Their time was 13:53:39. In 17th it was Kevin Colan, in a Chenowth, who said that at Mile 16 he'd got "crossed up" and had gone on "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" through a "telephone pole size Joshua tree". It tore up a lot of parts, but he got to his pit and had things repaired. Then he lost an alternator, but he got more help, and "cruised in." His time was 14:20: 15. Sam Berri was 18th, finishingat2:10a.m. He'd tom the front end off the car at about Mile 51 on a boulder. (He said Pat Dean hit the same boulder and tore off the rear end of his car.) Sam "dragged" his car to the pit, about eight or nine miles, and the repairs took five and a half hours. He didn't have any other problems, and "ba-bied it in." He finished in a time of 15:21: 16. Last in the class to finish were Bob Howle and Jon McCarahan in a Mason. They finished at 3:30 a.m., or just about the time we left the finish line, sowe didn't get to talk to them. Their time was 16: 18:25, indicating that they had some chal-lenges to overcome on their way to Dayton. In the Protruck class there were ten entries and they all started one after another, just behind the Trick Trucks and Class 1500 cars. The first to get to the finish was Rob Clouser, who usually has Cody Swanty as a co-driver in their Dodge. But Swanty wasn't here for this one, so Clouser drove the whole distance.

While limp-ing to the pit for repairs they got stuck trying to cross a ditch, and had to use their jack to help free the truck. Repairs to the steering cost about an hour and a half, and they dropped to seventh place. Gradually they passed various competitors, and with no further major problems, were in first place at the finish. Their time was 13:21:39. Finishing second were Wayne Demonja and Bob Nance who had a similar story with their Ford. They were stuck in that traffic jam and elected to get a tow up and over the hill to save their clutch. A second traffic jam where a truck had rolled cost them a little more time, and then in heavy traffic with very thick dust a vehicle running behind them hit them and did terminal dam-age to their brakes. So they limped to Pit 2 for repairs, which included changing a spindle and replacing a caliper. They lost at least an hour.

1.1\Ji!C:: Sir' NESTE OIL RALLY FINLAND LD■b Wins Big Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena flew their Citroen C4 to a nice win in Finland, they're seen here in level flight. Finally he cracked it! Citroen driver Sebastien Loeb led the Neste Oil Rally Finland from start to finish, only the fourth non-Scandinavian driver to win here. He withstood the ef-forts of various Fords, headed by Mikko Hirvonen but de-pleted when Jari-Matti Latvala went off the road on the first day. It was a classic Finnish battle with countless cars suf-fering the excesses of their driv-ers, and which served to make even closer the battles for the two major World titles. Welcome to rallying's land of speed. Neste Oil Rally Finland is more famously known as the : 1000 Lakes Rally" and in even earlier times as the Jyvaskylan Suurajot, which means the "Big Race at Jyvaskyla", the central Finnish town where the event is based. A name which still sums up the spirit of the event per-fectly. It is quite the fastest cur-rent event in the world cham-pionship, with a winning aver-age speed each year of around 120kph, notwithstanding the use of a slow superspecial twice this year. The average speed over all the stages is faster than· the FIA' s trad i ti o na l organisational recommenda-tion for the speed on indivjdual stages, and only a fract'ion slower . than the world championship's all time speed record achieved by Argentina in 1983. In an attempt to contain the speeds of the event, many smaller roads were used this year. This inevitably means they are not so strongly built and, to prevent them being badly damaged by the rally, they tended to be used once rather than the usual twice. It meant there were more different kilometres of stages than usual,-mea ning more work for the crews when they made their pre-event reconnaissance. Of the 23 special stages on this event, 18 were at different venues and four are completely new this year. There has been one sad sacrifice, that of the iconic Ouninpohja stage. Won last year as 129kph, some of its faster sections, including the most dramatic jump on the rally, were axed for safetirea-sons. The multiplicity of indi-vidual stages made life hard for competitors, with no fewer than 261km of the event's 340 being used only once, and of these 109km was different to 2007. With one. exception, all the double used stages were on the Friday. The rally was reason-ably compact with no need for remote service points, but an agonising feature was the slow maximum speed imposed on competitors during reconnais-sance and four competitive fell foul of the law. All six registered world championship teams competed and this year's rally was deemed one of the most wide open events in its history. None of the 109 drivers entered had ever won the event before! No fewer than 47 of these drivers were registered FIA champion-ship competitors, a handsomely greater number than the record achieved in Greece this year. This record is largely due to the fact that this is the first time, since Argentina 2006, a world championship rally had counted for both the Junior as well as the Production Car championship. It was also the first time since 2002 that the event had counted for the PCWRC. For the first time a rally organiser nominated THREE Guest championship drivers! In the JWRC category, Kalle Pinomaki had a Swift, in the PCWRC Juha Salo and Jussi Valimaki drove Mitsubishis. British champion Guy Wilks entered in his two wheel drive Honda Civic R3 car, also as a non-champion-ship entry, and the inveterate Italian amateur driver Fabrizio de Sanctis entered for a 23rd successive time. It was a big day for Matti Rantanen, a former Honda Juho Hanninen and Mikko Markkula took the PCWRC win in Finland in their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX and they were f 3'h overall as well. man, making his first outing in a World Rally Car. He was ex-cited, "These cars are easy to d rive up to a point, bu t after that, wow, they are MUCH harder to drive." Then for Luis Pere~ Companc, the proprietor of the Munchi's Rally Team, in-creasing business commitments back in Argentina meant this would be his last rally, "I have been so proud of our team, we have helped put Argentina on the world championship map, but for me it is all too time con-suming." Faced with difficult decisions were some of the driv-ers in the JWRC and PCWRC series. Patrik Sandell and Mar-tin Prokop, both who were reg-istered in both series. Sandell: "My PWRC plans were made first, and I wanted to come here." Prokop: "There are a lot of good Group N drivers here, but anyway, my Finland expe-riences are based on S 1600 cars so it seemed sensible to drive the Citroen. Both PCWRC and JWRC leaders were present on the event but had opted not to contest this event. PCWRC championship driver Andreas Aigner came to Finland as a privateer while his Red Bull Mitsubishi teammate Bernardo Sousa withdrew for reasons of a shoulder injury. JWRC leader Sebastien Ogier was entered in a R2 Max instead of a S 1600, to gain experience, and running with BF Goodrich instead of the control Pirelli tyres, other qualifying JWRC drivers had to use. His team admitted it was a good idea. "The tyres are free!" The consequence of the speeding offences Teported dur-ing reconnaissance was that three crews were denied the right to start, because the Po-lice had impounded the road driving licenses of the offend-ers, these were: the PCWRC driver from Hungary Gabor MayeT (61 over the limit), the JWRC driver Andrea Cortinovis from Italy (49), and the Fiesta Cup driver Vytautas Baranauskas from Lithuania (41). Mayer was already in deep trouble with the rally authori-ties, and in the end the team did a deal with the Finnish pri-vateer Tapio Suominen, wh o had hoped to be selected by the Finnish organisers fo r one of the Guest entries, but had been outvoted, to take over their en-try. And the fourth driver, who was clocked at 41 kph over the limit but was allowed to keep his license and start the rally? That person turned out to be a certain Mr. Loeb. Day 1 11 Stages, gravel, 131. 70kms. Conditions were splendid, just right for another thrilling "1000 Lakes" Rally. Sebastien Loeb sneaked in to the lead on· the opening superspecial at Killeri. Overnight it rained and this continued on the first stage on the Friday where Loeb anp Mikko Hirvonen were equal fastest (Stage 2) with Jari-Matti Latvala third. Then, on the fol-lowing stage, Latvala hit a rock. He tried to carry on but then the suspension failed and he was out. Going really well was Urmo Aava, third place over-all at the first midday service halt. Henning Solberg had a problem with his rear left sus-pension but was able to over-take brother Peter in to eighth place, behind Dani Sordo, Andreas Mikkelsen, Gigi Galli and Chris Atkinson. In the Suzukis, P.O . Andersson had a spin but was still close behind teammate Toni Gardemeister. Second overall went to Mikko Hirvonen and Jarmo Lehtinen, seen here in their Ford Focus RS, they were 9 seconds out of the win. It was a third place overall finish for Chris Atkinson and Stephane Prevot, seen here in the rain in their Subaru lmpreza. The second loop of stages was a repeat of the first, but the stages had started to de-grade. Loeb increased his lead over Hirvonen from 3.9 sec-onds to 9.1, even though they tied once again, this time on Stage 6. Mikko's co-driver, J armo Lehtinen explained, "Mikki is driving at 100% , but you have to drive this event at 110% to win. We are not doing that, yet!" Henning was climb-i-ng up, even though he dam-aged his suspension again, and was up to fifth, but the main story in the paddock was the de-spondency of the Subaru team. The new S 14 was not delivering as they had hoped. Team man-ager Paul Howarth, "We know that Chris (Atkinson) has an in-dependent issue (shorthand for shock absorbers which needed changing), but both h~ and Petter are suffering similar Page 18 October 2008 Dusty Times

Atkinson got ahead of his teammate, Petter Solberg, when the Number 5 Subaru started having traction troubles on Stage 14. Andersson was going reliably when news came that his team-mate Gardemeister was slowing with power steering failure. Matti Rantanen had some clutch problems which caused him to stall at the start of Stage 13 and then again on 14. Among the SupeRally re-start-ers: Mikkelsen confessed his mo-tivation was now at a lower level and both Aava and Latvala spun at the same place on Stage 12. On the second loop of the day the struggle continued, and Latvala, running in much cleaner roads than those at the front of the field, made a couple of fastest times even without taking risks. These stages were on narrower roads which generally favoured the Citroens over the Fords. First big drama was the crash of Galli. There was a double left bend, in the fast former Ouninpohja stage, and off he went. Then Andersson did the same in the Suzuki. Henning was struggling but when Galli crashed on Stage 16 Henning stayed in fourth place as Sordo had meanwhile passed him. A 10 second penalty for a jump start did nothing to improve Henning's spirits. Petter's transmission was changed at service and this cured the prob-lem, but now he was over a half-minute behind his Australian teammate. With Andersson now out, Gardemeister had his power steering repaired and was told to slow and play safe, making sure he kept Matthew Wilson behind. Rantanen and Rautenbach both hit the same stone and each broke their front right wheel. Federico Villagra had a high-speed over-shoot and lost time. With three stages of the day to go Loeb was still first car on the road but not suffering too much for this. Hirvonen dropped a few sec-onds on Stage 20 when the launch control failed. Petter Solberg found his front differ-ential was losing its precision. Gardemeister felt his engine was losing power.

It was quite a reception from the fans in Oshkosh, Wisconsin as off road racing returned af-ter a 12 year absence.

That's not an average for the race, it's a speed reached at one point on the track, between transponder pickups. CORR has four tim-ing points out on the track, so every driver can know which sec-tion of the track is his best and, conversely, which is his slowest. The theory is he can then work on improving his skills in a par-ticular area. Choosing tires for this event Rob MacCachren took the win in both heats at Pomona, he is seen here flying his Ford towards the checkered flag. isn't easy.

With the CORR season now on the "downhill" side of the calendar, tempers are close to the surface, and so are tears. There was some of each at the final Pomona weekend of the season, on August 16th and 17th• It was hot at Pomona, but there were some breezes that helped keep temperatures at a workable level. Still, the most used items in the big pits were the huge portable air coolers. Gallons of water were being dumped into their reservoirs in order to keep the air under the canopies at a livable level. The race course remained the same as the two previous events at Pomona: about seven-tenths of a mile, some of which had been left as pavement. It con-sisted of five turns, one of which (number four) was down in a hole. Two of them; numbers landing. They'd come down Turn 5 also. Turn five was a bit The schedule called for prac-gracefully on the downhill at the lumpy, but flat, and bordered tice and qualifying on Friday far end.

Late on Friday there 51 miles per hour, and in Pro the fifth row. (They start two-=--==..,.,,.,,""""'""""""""""""'~~=..,,,.,.---.....,,,===,,,,,.,,,,,,,....,, abreast at these events.) The CORR officials use some myste-rious formula to decide just how many cars will be "inverted" for the start,' and it's not the same for each event. Thus, the fast qualifiers can start tenth through third, but not first or second. Saturday's first event was the Single Buggy Main, featuring 25 cars. On the first try, Cissy Baldwin, who'd started on the front row, rolled her car in Turn 3 and landed on her lid. That brought out the red flag and a restart, with everyone, including Baldwin, back in their original positions. The rule is that if something happens to stop the race on Lap One, it will not re-sult in a penalty for the driver who caused it. That aborted lap just disappears as if it never hap-pened. On the restart all went well, except for one poor soul who spun out in the Turn 4 hole and lost a bunch of positions. At the end of the lap L.J. Kennedy had his car in front, with Brock Krahenbuhl in second place and Cory Boyer third. Kennedy's new to this form of racing, and has been improving each time. On the third lap Boe Krahenbuhl, a new member of the Menzies team, was left be-hind in Turn 3 with what looked Continued next page Rick Huseman saves a bit of tire wear at Pomona, Rick finished Steve Barlow had a fourteenth and a second place finish in Pro 4, second and seventh in his Toyota, he is third in Pro 4 points.

Bryan Freeman, who started back in the fourth row, thanks to the Inversion, was moving up steadily, and by the second lap was in second place and trying to pass Kennedy. He accom-plished that on the fourth lap, and now it was Freeman, and Curt Geer, and Kennedy. They ran that way through the fifth lap, and then Lap six was the mandatory "competition yel-low", designed to close up the cars, and make the racing "more entertaining" for the spectators. At that point it was still Free-man and Kennedy, but now Rino Navera had moved into third place. The Competition Yellow turned into a two-lap deal because a car had rolled in Turn 5 and landed on its side and it took a while to remove it. Page 26 At the end of the tenth lap it was still Freeman and Geer in first and second, and now Navera was trying to fend off Cory Boyer, who was having a hard time finding second gear. They completed the lap side-by-side. Boyer had a firm grip on third place on the eleventh lap, and that's the way they finished, with some hot battles still going on behind them. A group that included Kennedy, Brock Krahenbuhl and Navera battled hard and entertainingly, right down to the checkered flag. At the end of the last lap it was Freeman, Geer, Boyer, Kennedy, Krahenbuhl and Navera. All but four cars finished all the laps. When the Single Buggies came back on Sunday, there were 26 of them. There was also a slight change in the course. A pair of wins in the UTV races went to Chad George, Chad is a very close second place in the UTV Class point championship. The last bump in the section between Turns 4 (the Hole) and 5 had been either moved back or taken away. Not having seen it being done, we can't say pre-cisely what was done, but the net result was that the approach to Turn 5 smoothed out a bit sooner, and should send most cars into the turn on four wheels, instead of with their rears up in the air. For this race the Single Bug-gies had their first ten qualifi-ers inverted. That put L.J. Kennedy and Chris Boyer on the front row. The race started at about 12:30, and it was a clean start, with spins in Turn 3 and Turn 4, but no red flags came out, and no one had to be towed away. By the end of their first lap they were all covered with mud, because the course was very wet. October 2008 Chris Boyer led the first two laps, but his brother Cory had shot up to the front like a rocket, and on the third lap went into the lead, only to lose it and drop two positions a lap later. The lead three cars, the Boyer brothers and Bryan Free-man were into lapped cars by their third lap. They were duel-ing hard, switching positions frequently, and putting on a terrific show. But on the fourth lap Cory Boyer developed a right rear flat. And on the fifth lap Freeman went into the lead, with Brock Krahenbuhl in sec-ond place, and Chris Boyer in third. The mandatory full course Competition Yellow flag turned into a two-lap deal so a strag-gling Kelly Renezeder could catch up. When the cars were restarted it was Freeman, Krahenbuhl, Curt Geer and Navera. On the next lap a couple came together in Turn 5 and there was also a yellow flag in the Turn 4 hole. The bat-tling was fierce. Freeman built a good lead with Krahenbuhl and Geer having a close fight behind him. But then on the 1 zth lap, as they concentrated on each other, Navera sneaked past both of them and into sec-ond place. Freeman still had a good lead, but Navera was ob-viously pushing hard, on the edge of disaster all around the track as the end of the race loomed closer. On the 13th lap he came close, but took a bad bounce at the end of the mo-guls, saved himself, but then had more ground to make up on the final lap. On the white flag lap Freeman went into Turn 5 in the lead, but Navera, all but out of control, charged into the turn and somehow drove up onto Freeman's hood. Navera's front end was off the ground. Freeman kept moving, obviously hoping Navera would fall off. Meanwhile, Geer took advan-tage of Freeman's reduced speed, and zipped by to take the check-ered flag. When Navera's car dropped off he crossed the line second, with Krahenbuhl in third and Freeman in fourth, all very close together. The post race interview wasn't exactly friendly. Navera was later docked six points for "excessive speed un-der a caution on Sunday." On Saturday, after the main-Dusty Times

tenance crew gave the course a thorough watering, it was time for the Pro Buggy race, the sec-ond Saturday event. The course was so wet that the pace truck leading the cars around was slid-ing, and there were actual puddles on the track. There were 28 cars. The officials had them do a couple of pace laps, apparently meaning to dry things out a bit, but the net re-sult was that the cars and driv-ers were already mud-covered by the time they started. The driv-ers had probably already gone through some of their tear-offs also.

Herbst and Huseman were hav-ing a good race. On about lap 14 Douglas hit Greaves near the start of Turn 1 and got him sideways. That slowed both of them, and LeDuc went on into the lead all by him-self. Now Huseman was second and Curt LeDuc ran third. On the 16th lap Renezeder' s truck went up in smoke, and he pulled off the course, and a lap later Troy Herbst's transfer case broke, "puked hot oil" and caught fire. The fire was quickly put out, but he was done. Curt Geer had a second and a first place finish in Single Buggy, he's seen here on his way to victory at Pomona. It was a first and a twelfth place finish for Larry Foddrill in the Pro Buggy contests, he's seen here flyin' high. Just after the white flag flew, as they entered Turn 1, Greaves appeared to slow a tiny bit, and his truck was already set up for the turn. Ed Herbst, powerless to do anything, bumped him. That sent Greaves into a hard barrel roll. He actually revolved six times, touching down twice, and finally settling on his roof. The landings were hard, because it was on the pavement section of the course. He later said, "It felt like I'd been dropped from an airplane." Greaves was put on a back board and into the ambu-lance and taken to the hospital. Herbst, who considers Greaves a close friend, was visibly shaken~ Ampudia and Kincaid, but now Robert Naughton was in fourth place and Chad Hord was fifth. Anything could happen. On the 11th lap Kincaid pulled out. And there was a local yellow in Turn 4 while they towed Alan Ampudia back up onto solid ground. Now it was Hart, Rodrigo Ampudia and Naughton in front of the pack. And they ran that way until the 14th lap. Then Ampudia went by Hart, and Naughton followed him, when Hart spun in Turn 4. At the finish it was Rodrigo Ampudia, Naughton on a right rear flat, and Hart. In his post race interview, Naughton said, "It was carnage from the get go!" And he added that on the restart after the Competition Yellow, he thought he should have been po-sitioned further towards the front. Hart said he'd lost his brakes half way through. He added, "Gotta step it up if we want to catch Naughton and those guys." Menzies' truck, with MacCachren at the wheel, didn't finish, thanks to a broken ring and pinion. Saturday's Pro 4 event had 15 trucks and started at 3:30 in the afternoon. Kyle LeDuc and Carl Renezeder were on the front row, with Scott Douglas and Josh Baldwin in row 2. Baldwin and John Greaves, who started in the third row, did some banging and shoving on the start, but Leduc sailed serenely out into the lead with Renezeder chasing him. Trucks seemed to be going in all directions at once, and on the second lap Ed Herbst, who'd somehow got onto the space above Turn 4, made an off-roader's decision and simply dove off the side and down into the hole. The audience cheered wildly. LeDuc, Renezeder and Greaves continued to lead the pack for several laps. Mike Jenkins' truck rolled over and died in Turn 5 and had to be towed away, during a full course yellow. That was the fourth lap and Baldwin took advantage of the yellow to go to the Hot Pit with a left rear flat, and Cenni, who was breaking in a new mo-tor, also took a trip into the pit. On the fifth lap Rick Huseman spun in Turn 3, and by the time he was going forward again he was second from last, only Baldwin behind him. Mean-while, LeDuc was working hard to stay in front of Renezeder. He bobbled at the end of the mo-guls before Turn 5 and Renezeder closed up some, with Greaves chasing hard in third. Renezeder went by LeDuc at the start of the hole, but as they flew across the moguls, LeDuc went back by him. Then as they came Dale Dondel took a fourteenth and a first place finish in Pro Buggy, Dale sits fourth in Class points, seen here at high speed. out of Turn 3 on the next lap, Renezeder went past. There was some banging in Tum 5 and now with LeDuc leading, Greaves was second and Renezeder in third. The banging and shoving was pretty fierce, and on the ninth lap the announcer de-clared that "Carl Renezeder will get the Black Flag!" The audi-ence cheered. Greaves was now in the lead, with LeDuc in sec-ond place. Baldwin slid in Turn 3, bumped Jerry Daugherty and then went off the side, but it didn't slow him much. At this point it was Greaves, LeDuc and Douglas, with Curt LeDuc in fourth. Behind them Troy Kyle LeDuc took the win, after a fine drive, Huseman was second and in third it was LeDuc's dad, Curt.

LeDucs lived the moment they'd been hoping for since the kids were old enough to drive. It was Kyle's first Pro 4 win, making the trip to the podium even more spe-cial. Greaves was checked out thor-oughly at the hospital, and was back at the track later that evening. He had a scary looking black eye, caused from the force of the landing, not a blow to the head_ He was said to have some bruises but nothing was broken, however, he was not to be allowed ·to drive on Sunday because he'd been knocked out briefly by the final landing. Sunday's· Pro 4 race had 15 trucks lined up, for a 3: 15 p.m. start. The four fastest qualifiers had been inverted, which put Carl Renezeder and Curt LeDuc on the front row. Scott Douglas and Rick Huseman started be-hind them, and at the back of the pack was John Greaves, who'd do one lap, go to the hot pit, and put Dan VandenHeuvel in to drive this race also. After two pace laps they had a clean start, and Curt LeDuc led the first lap, but by lap two Rick Huseman was in the lead and LeDuc was sec-ond. Renezeder ran third, fol-lowed by Kyle LeDuc. On the fourth lap the Senior LeDuc fell back, and while Huseman held the lead, Renezeder moved up to second. He had a way to go be-fore-he'd catch Huseman how-ever, and they ran in that order, with Kyle LeDuc in third for many laps. On the eighth lap Troy Kerbst took a bad bump at the end of the straight, got sideways and went clear up to the wall, and never did another lap. They towed him away during the full course yellow. On the Competition Yellow it was Huseman, Renezeder, Kyle LeDuc, Curt LeDuc and Scott Joe Granatelli took his fifth win of the season and a third place finish in Kart Jr 2, Joe sits a close second in Class points. Douglas. Jerry Daugherty went to the hot pit, and Greaves' truck went into the Hot Pit. They both came back out at the rear of the pack. Adrian Cenni made a visit to the Hot Pit also -there was time, because for some reason they had two yellow laps. When they got going again Renezeder and Huseman were hard at it. They battled hard for a couple of laps, and Renezeder was really . crowding Huseman. They were side by side into Turn four, and Renezeder came out first. But then Renezeder got sideways in Turn 5 and as Huseman bounced up on two wheels, his truck nudged Renezeder and got him even more sideways. LeDuc and Douglas passed Renezeder. A lap later, after someone apparently looked at a replay of that inci-dent, the officials declared that Huseman would get the Black Flag. The audience greeted the announcement with dead silence at first, but some of Huseman's fans recovered quickly, and be-came very vocal about the pen-alty. But Huseman got the Black Flag anyway - arrd it had the ex-pected result -pe came out of the Hot Pit in ninth place (in an 11 truck field). LeDuc took over the lead for a lap, but then he pulled out after Turn 3 and Scott Douglas took over the lead. He stayed there for the final three laps to take the win, with Steve Barlow in second place and Renezeder back up to third. Huseman finished seventh. He later protested the Black Flag, and the CRB reviewed the inci-dent, and denied his protest. The UTV race finished off Saturday afternoon, with 25 side-by-sides out on the track. Before the first lap was over Chad George had his Kawasaki in the lead, with Kris Taylor running sec-ond and Austin Kimbrell in third place. One of their competitors lost a wheel and ground to a halt, and another rolled over. By the time the officials flew the Competition Yellow on about the fifth lap, George's lead was astounding. His new racer is go-ing to raise the bar for the rest of the competitors apparently. The full course yellow closed things up again, but when they restarted, Escondido El Centro 7916 Balboa Avt. 426 N.

Trent Williams took a first and a fourth in Kart Jr 1 at Pomona, it was his sixth win and he has a healthy lead in the class point race. George once again built a big lead. Robert VanBeekum tried hard and ran well, but couldn't catch him, although he built a big space between himself and third place Regis Harrington. At the finish it was George, VanBeekum and Harrington, and 18 of the original 25 did all the laps. Sunday's UTV race came ear-'lier in the day, starting at about 1:30. There were only 20 of them this time, and the top ten qualifi-ers had their start positions in-verted. That meant that the fast qualifiers were in the fifth row as the green flag flew. They got a clean start and Dan Kelly pulled out a long lead right away, with Robert Van Beekum in second place and Chad George running third. Jacob Person was fourth. By the third lap George had worked his way up to second, but Kelly had a long lead. On the fifth lap, which was their Competition Yellow Flag lae, as the racers closed up it was noted that Kelly had a nerf bar that had come loose and was dragging. It's a no-no to run with something that's potentially haz-ardous to the racer or to others dangling, so he was black flagged and sent to the Hot Pit to have it removed. It took only seconds, but he lost his lead, a"nd dropped to nearly last. Surely a big disap-pointment, since he'd driven such a good race up to that point. They kept the full course yellow flags going for another lap. On the restart George was in the lead, and Kelly was driving an inspired "come from behind" race,, which moved him up seven posi-tions on the eighth lap and three more on the ninth lap. When the checkered flag flew on lap ten, he was in fourth. But up there way in front of him, Chad George had taken the win with Robert Van Beekum in second place and Jacob Person third. The audience was cheering Kelly on, and if sheer will-power could do it, he'd have been battling for the win. As the end of the season nears tempers grow short and patience is thin. The officials have warned the racers that they anticipate that "we will be seeing the black flag a lot more" for the remain-der of the season. As was seen this weekend, the black flag makes a big difference in the finish or-der. The final two weekends should be interesting.

Seventy-two Finishers. Sixty DNFs. One DNS. It was a sight to behold. That many racers in so many different Classes on a 'short' 36-mile long course translated into a whole lotta racing going on; aka "action" to the die-hard desert off-road Race Fan. There was plenty of that. How much M.O.R.E. can you handle? CLASS 1: Gather round race fans and ye' shall hear, the story of the M.O.R.E./Trail Glow Freedom 250. It was a dark night, under the bright light of a full moon. It was windy. The 'Barstow BreeZe' kind of windy. It was dusty. It was very dusty. Did I mention how dark and windy and dusty it was? Did I have fun in the dirt and dust and dark, under the moonlight? Uh huh. You bet'cha! And so did the 133 racers who entered the M.O.R.E./Trail Glow Freedom 250 Night Race at Barstow CA on 19 July 2008. Twelve Classes. It was the standard BLM Course B, clockwise. Thirty-six miles of rough and brutal and dusty. Nine Road Crossings (RX), three Check Points (CHK), lots of twists and turns, and rough and brutal and dusty and dark in between. Rutted out, tore up, lots of carnage; and dust in the dark. It was rougher than Barstow. Pit row stretched out for over a mile. Unfortunately, everybody but one pitched their pit on the receiving side of the course; and got dirt and dust blowing through all night long. You can always spot a It was a good evening for Rich Volpe, he took the 1300 Class win with more than 20 minutes in hand, seen here at speed.

Down and out in the desert, in the dark of night under a moonlit sky. I've been there and done that, and it is no-fun-@-all. What? I'm not lost - I just don't know where I am.

Right off the start, Karakas put the horsepower from the cars freshly prepped LS7 to the ground and went off into the dust looking for the leaders. "By mile 12 or so just as we dropped into the sand wash we had passed numerous cars but may have pushed the car a little too hard for the temperature of the day as our temp gauge rose to 230 degrees. We backed the pace off to let the motor cool but the extreme temp outside left us limping the car for nearly the remainder of the lap. We fought our way around the course driving fast when we could but having to watch the temp gauge constantly for fear of overheating. At the end of the third lap we pulled into main pit for a driver and co-driver change. Andy Birchard took over the driving with Brad Olsen as his navigator and the fight was on to keep out front. Unfortunately just 2 miles out of main pit one of the notorious Barstow rocks jumped out and disabled the car with its only flat for the day. Brad made quick work of changing the tire.

I _ j FALLON 250 -----'"· Stlles • Seate, Wins It All Jeff Stiles was the Class 1 winner at the V0RRA Fallon 250, perhaps the first time a four seater with four on board has won a race. With just one race under his belt, Wes Harbor, the new Vorra chief, pulled the Fallon 250 race off like a seasoned veteran. Working with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and a local power plant, Wes managed to put together a 42 mile race course through some of the Fallon area's best deserts. Because a new power plant is being built right in the middle of the road, the BLM would not let him cut a new road around it. So in an agreement with the power plant, a checkpoint was placed at their entrance. A 10 mph speed limit was imposed through the power plant property with severe penalties for speeding; five minutes added to your time and you would be stopped at the next checkpoint to talk about the rule infraction. Fortunately, only one quad sped through the power plant. The rest went off without a hitch. Opening its doors to Vorra rac-ers was the Stockman's Casino in Fallon. Coinciding with the race was the Casino's 39th birthday celebra-tion. Tech was held in the parking lot from 5-9pm Friday night. The casino also hosted a beach party for their "birthday" with games for the kids, a DJ, beer wagon and bar-be-que. Right as the race was getting ready to start, some stray motorcycle ran down the course. This delayed the quad start by 10 minutes. But once 12: 10 rolled around the Pro class quads were off the line, led by $252 Mason Cole. Second off the line was #104 Brad Falin followed by #4 Garrett Giovanetti in his first Yorra race this season. Giovanetti had an accident before Checkpoint 1 and caused great concern for the Yorra staff as they tried to get a rescue team to him. Within minutes medics were on the scene and within a half an hour he was transported to the hos-pital with minor head injuries and a dislocated shoulder. Hats off to #77x Jeremy Daellseer who basically gave up his race to stay with the downed rider - a true sportsman. After the first lap Cole was first on the track but was just under a minute Dale Smith had a really good race, he took Class 10 honors at Fallon, he's seen here at speed on the course. behind Falin on corrected time. Cole used the dust free course to pull ahead on Lap 2 and take the win in the class over Falin by two minutes and 21 seconds. Cole's two lap time was 1:48:35. In the amateur quads, there were six who took the green and it was #31 Mike Jasmann that led once again flag to flag. His two lap time was 1:43:02, five minutes 33 seconds faster than the Pro quad winning time .. Second place, with a come from behind move, was Kenny Pomer·oy (55k). Kenny made up a 55 second first lap deficit to place second with just 44 seconds over Jeff Logan (212). The Bantam class is just one lap and edging out the top spot by just one minute two seconds, was Jason Pomeroy (5) over Cody Bennett (77) who had such a remarkable lap at the May Yerington race. After the course was cleared, chase crews were allowed 30 min-utes to run up to Checkpoint 2 us-ing the race course. This saved crews a two hour drive in which they would have had to come in the backside of a mountain range. At 4:00pm sharp #124, Ryan Massie, was off the line in his four seat Rescue Racing car leading the seven other Class 1 's. Af-ter one lap of racing Roger Gray (21) in his Phoenix Racing trophy truck was the lr:ader and set the fast lap of the day with·a time of 48:32, 53.16mph average. Gray was fol-lowed by Jeff Stiles (117), Jim Pad-dock (169), Dave Morton (125) in the other Rescue Racing four seater, and Ryan Massie. After two laps the order changed somewhat with Stiles having a 5:27 lead over Gray, Paddock, Morton, and Massie. On Lap 3, Stiles still had a slim lead and the order hadn't changed. Lap 4 would have troubles for Gray a-s he dropped to fourth, moving Morton up to second and Paddock in third. Paddock would dr_op out on Lap 4, moving Massie up to fourth. At the finish it was Stiles taking the class and overall win with a time of 5:05:52 and 50.61 mph average. Stiles had a trouble free run with his son Evan Stiles riding shotgun and his son's friends, Randy Petersen and Matt Hoffman riding in the 3rd and 4th seats in the back. No flat tires and only hav-ing to stop for gas once was the ad-vantage Stiles had over the rest of the class and field. Second place in class went to Dave Morton with a time of 6:43:25. Morton had mi-nor issues throughout the day but, managed a finish. Third place and final finisher in class with just 11:27 to spare from the seven hour cut off was Roger Gray who overcan:ie some downtime and flats to make the fin-ish line. Robert Cramer beat out all the competition in the Class 8 fracas, Cramer is seen here at speed on the course. Scott Rogers was the gold medal winner in the Class 7 contest at Fallon, he led from the start and only stopped for fuel. In the ever so fierce Class 10 battle, four cars lined up. The class favorite, Sam Berri (1049), was having trouble early on with major repairs and a 3:43:05 first lap. It was Yerington overall winner Patrick Timmons ( 1030) with the first lap lead followed by Dale Smith (1044) and Kenny Ott (1063). After three laps the order had changed with Smith out front by just five seconds over Timmons. Lap 4 and Timmons was back out front by less than a minute. Timmons had steering trouble on Lap 5 and gave the lead to Smith, who would take it to the finish line for first in class and second overall with a time of 5:09:40 and 49.99 mph average. Second place in class and fifth overall went to Kenny Ott who was 43:22 out of the top spot.

Taking second place on Lap 2, Robert Cramer (8122) got past Doug Seymour (8072) with Mark Dahlen (82) following in fourth. At the half way point Gray was having issues and posted the long-est lap of the day at 3:38:08. This moved Cramer into the lead, fol-lowed by Dahlen and Seymour. Seymour would only do three laps placing third and Dahlen would only go one more placing second. Com-pleting just five laps gave Cramer the win in the class. Just two cars were entered in the 1600 class, but they had a good battle going all day. At the check-ered flag was Vince Viola (1685) taking the win and third overall in his Lothringer. Just over 16 minutes behind was second place and sixth overall winner, J .J. Schnar (2021). After nearly six hours of racing, Schnar had kept Viola on his toes all day, as he was never more than 21 minutes behind. The largest class of the day was the 12 car field of Class 7 open. Tak-ing the lead from the pole starting position and leading all day was the #784 Ford of Scott Rodgers. Rodgers would have a nearly trouble free day-only stopping a couple of times to let the fuel pumps catch up. Rodgers also placed fourth overall with his time of 5:49:33. Taking sec-ond for the day from the start was the #724 Ford of Jeff Sherrill. Sherrill came within minutes of Rodgers on quite a few laps, despite having only one working headlight as the darkness fell. Sherrill also had troubles on the last lap taking him out of the running for the top spot. The third and final finisher in the class was #1734 of Bob Roggy in his Jeepspeed. Roggy had minor prob-lems throughout the day including so many flat tires that he had to bor-row tires to make it around six times, and that too was with a flat at the finish line. Completing only four laps was good enough for fourth place and that went to first time racer Jeff Navarette (7 505) in a Toyota. The Navarette team decided just a week before to tum their sand toy into a desert racer and give it a go. Despite overheating issues and a loose exhaust, the team finally ran out of time to finish all the laps but had a great time trying. Short course ace K.C. Keller (738) tried his hand at desert racing and finished only two laps but was fifth in class. The 10-car Semi-Pro field had a great race from the drop of the green flag. After 42 miles, Guy Kent (52) was in the lead by just 2:22 over Dan Gallmaistler (60) and Terry Shelton (81) with James Allen (1018), Dusty Times ,., .. · 100 Gallon Ca.P11oity • ~ingl& o:r D~uble J)ry)rm •EZSet.Up o&f 1Spoteftacttages 't •'~4Jl,iltwt~i 'W/llolsters •1Spotter~t$ :;:;,-' -.~':::::-: • HiihnelJ'billg.llt& .

For The Best Reproduction of Your Photos: For the best reproduction of your ad's photograph it is best if you allow Dusty Times to size and crop the photo. To allow sufficient space for us to display your vehicle in the most effective manner it is suggested that the object you are advertising occupy no more than 7 5% of the space in the photograph. To achieve the highest quality in your photograph you should not provide Xerox copies, photo prints in less than 600dpi if computer generated, or photographs already printed as halftones. It is always best to provide an actual photograph or a digital photograph printed on photo quality paper with a photo printer, not smaller than 4x3" in size. We also accept digital imagery on compact disc in jpg, tif, and pdf formats. Your photograph, regardless of the media, should never be folded as it is impossible to remove the line created by the fold. Adding a piece of stiff cardboard or heavy cover quality paper with your photograph will help to protect it on it's journey to our offices.
