CORR SCHEDULE CHANGE-CORR has canceled their race at Primm, Nevada on October 25 and 26. CORR is expanding the Series season finale in Chula Vista into a three day affair. This allows CORR to maintain the on-site and broadcast production quality and includes two days of live television coverage. The Chula Vista three day event will take place the first weekend in December. For more information, contact CORR at WORLD RALLYING -Martin Holmes 21st annual book on World Rallying with the support of Pirelli will be ready for the rally enthusiasts on December 15, 2008. As usual, a work of art, filled with facts on the entire WRA 2008 season, 208 pages of text and with more than 400 color photos of all the top teams in action, this book is a must for your library. Holmes books are recognized as the leading book on International Rallying. Previous editions have established these books as the leading reference book in the sport, used by journalists, industry and rally fans all over the world. There is also coverage of the IRC, European, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and African regional championships and many regional championships around the world. All the features are illustrated comprehensibly, primarily by Maurice Selden's fabulous photography. The leading, fe;i.tures in Pirelli World Rallying 31 will include a history of Super 2000, the memories and advice from 70 year old Rauno Aaltonen and stories about Prodrive's World Rally Car customer program. Other features will relate to the people and subjects which become topical as the rally season progresses. SCORE READIES FOR BAJA 1000 -November 19-22, 2008, the 41st edition of the SCORE Tecate 1000. A huge entry is expected and many of the class leaders are very close in points so the race could really be an upset for many drivers.

Marcos Nunez is sixth overall and leads Class 5/1600, Don Moss leads Class 3 and he is seventh overall in points, Brian Collins, Trophy Truck, is eighth overall iR points with 254, Mark Post, Trophy Truck is ninth overall with 253 points and Ramon Fernandez, Class 11, is 10th in points with 252 earned. DO YOU NEED HELP AT THE RACES? READ ON - A concierge service? What's a concierge service? And what does it have to do with off-road racing? Most people are familiar with roadside assistance services. Getting help with a flat tire, a dead battery or other road problem is just a cell phone call away. But now Coach-Net, a major supplier of such assistance for RV travelers, has taken that kind of help to a new level of personal service that was previously thought of only in connection with the upscale traveler. And it's geared specifically to motorsports enthusiasts, whether they be NASCAR fans, motorcycle fans, motocross high jumpers, buggy racers, ATV fans or dragsters. "Concierge" is a French term that refers to "a person employed at a hotel or apartment building to help the guests or residents, for example, by dealing with luggage, making travel arrangements, or delivering messages." (Encarta World English Dictionary) More broadly, it is used to describe a person, such as a personal assistant, "employed (as by a business) to make arrangements and run errands." (Merriam-Webster Dictionary) Today the term is also used to describe any kind of personal assistant who Gan help with such things as shopping as well as arranging appointments, scheduling restaurant and travel reservations, and attending to a variety of other personal needs. Still sounds like luxury class? Think again! Motorsports enthusiasts, even those who like to get down and dirty at the off-road trails and tracks, can now get the equivalent of a personal assistant for $109.50 a year plus $10 application fee. Called Motorsports Advantage, this new service provides timely over-the-phone help with the myriad of details that come with participating in a moi:orsports event. And while it was developed by Coach-Net, it is not limited to RVers. Need a camping spot at the track? Just call. Curious about the point standings or looking for a pit pass? Just call. Need to find a nearby hotel in a certain price range for some visiting friends? Just call. Or maybe you suddenly need to find an auto parts store, or a nearby drug store? Just call. Heck, even if you run into legal trouble or (God forbid) need a bail bondsman. Just call! (See comprehensive list at the end of this article) The new service was just launched in April and the initial feedback so far "has been very positive," said Lederer. "But right now, we're they only service of this kind available. People are still getting used to the idea that they could have something like this for only $110 a year. After all, how many of us think in terms of having a personal assistant? For the average motorsports fan, that's not a familiar travel perk." "But it's also true, especially for the traveler, that there are a myriad of details to attend to. Most people are going to the races to have fun, plain and simple. It's those kind of details they want to leave behind for a while, not Page& TOM DELAUDER, SR. 1091 TOWNSHIP LINE RO/\D WELI.SVILLE, OHIO 43968 (330) 532-4589 ENsl!NADA BAJA OFF RoAD RACING Av.

iilHPRIMM :SN Norman-& Raesseler Take overall BY ]UDY SMITH PHOTOS: TRACKS/DE PHOTO .. • • Roger Norman and Larry Roesseler teamed up to take the Trophy Truck win and the overall win at Primm, seen here hustling their Ford F-150. Roger Norman and Larry Roeseler teamed in Norman's Ford Trophy Truck to take the overall win at SCORE's Septem-ber Primm 300. The weather was, as usual, hot, and unfortunately, the breezes died down, making it dusty on course. A nice steady breeze is always hoped for at Primm, but more often than not the winds howl and dust swirls across the desert. Not this year. The course was a 72 mile long loop, starting and finishing ad-jacent to the Buffalo Bill's park-ing lot. The Main Pits were just north of the hotel grounds. Spec-tator access was carefully con-trolled by the BLM, and there was no access to the course by chase vehicles or pit persons. If the driver couldn't fix it, he was through for the day. To help ameliorate the possibility of such a thing happening, a couple of teams entered a second vehicle which was to serve as a chase ve-hicle in the event of a break-down. This wasn't so easy to do here, because all the classes weren't on the course at the same __,,..... _______ _ Aaron Hawley teamed up with Bryan Freeman and they captured the Class ½-1600 gold medal, seen here in their Seagrove. time. In a point-to-point event a team can simply enter a Sports-man truck alrea"Cly loaded with spares, and then made sure it stays behind the vehicle it's sup-porting. Because of the two heat configuration at the Primm race, there were only Class 1 cars, Class 8 trucks, Protrucks and Class 7 trucks on the course with the Trophy Trucks. So to have a "chase truck" on course meant entering someone in a vehicle that could run in one of those classes. There was a Protruck being used that way, and one Trophy Truck was entered as a backup vehicle. The two race format meant that the smaller and slower ve-hicles had to start early in the day, right at sunrise, which was about 6:05 a.m. This group in-cluded Class 10, SCORE Lite, Class 1/2-1600, Class 5, 5/1600, 7SX, 9, 3, Stock Full, Stock Mini, 11, and Sportsman Trucks and Cars. They did varying num-bers of laps, at 2, 3 or 4. In the second group, which started at one p.m., there were the Trophy Trucks and Classes 1, 7 and Protrucks. The Trophy trucks and Class 1 did four laps the others did three. Everyone had a time limit of seven hours. The morning group was led Armin Schwarz and Martin Christensen were the big winners in the Class 1 contest, they were third overall in their Jimco-BMW. off the line by Bekki Wik in her Class 10 Honda Bunderson. There were nine entries in the class. At the end of the first lap she had a lead of five minutes and five seconds. In second place it was Robert McBeath, and in third, another five minutes back, Mark and C.J. Hutchins in their screaming orange Kreger-Honda. Jeremy and Mike James ran fourth, less than a minute further behind, in a Jimco VW . Things changed a bit on the sec-ond lap, except that Wik stayed in front. Her lead was now 11:23, and she was telling her-self to stay cool and not make mistakes. Second place belonged to Adam Ashcraft in his Alumicraft VW. He'd had a flat on the first lap, which he esti-mated used 11 minutes to change. In third it was the McBeath car, another half-minute or so back and fourth belonged to the Hutchins team, When Wik finished her sec-ond lap her husband, Adam, took over, and he was also en-joying almost totally dust free running. He was still in front at the end of the third lap, and their lead was now nine minutes, with Ashcraft second and mov-ing faster than anyone else. He'd also had the fastest second lap. In third place it was McBeath, and the Hutchins car ran fourth. The James team didn't finish this lap. Wik stayed steady, but had some traffic on the fourth lap, and he had a flat tire. Still he kept up a good even pace, and managed to finish first. Then it was time for crossed fingers for a few moments as Ashcraft came in very close behind him, having recorded the fast lap for the class for the day, at l: 14:53. But it wasn't quite enough to do it. The Wiks took the win by a minute and 32 seconds. Bekki said, "Nothing happened." She added, "I backed off -had no dust -didn't have to make any mis takes, or take any chances. You dream of these days -they don't come that often." She said, "The course was fast, rough and rocky. It was fun. The day you dream of!" Ashcraft, who drove the en-tire distance, had only that first lap flat to trouble him, and fin-ished 37 minutes in front of third place Mikey Lawrence in his Lothringer VW. He'd run "A little hot" and had been stuck behind a stuck Bronco at one point. In fourth it was Michael Wichman and Rick Lance in a Chenowth YW. They'd had three or four flats all together, and a "small power steering belt problem." They were another seven minutes back, and were the final team to finish in Class 10. McBeath and Hutchins both faded away on the last lap. In the SCORE Lite class, which had 14 entries, there were 13 different chassis builders listed. At the end of the first lap the lead belonged to David Scaroni in Tom Watson's Prill. But he had less than two min-utes on Steve Mamer in a Raceco. Third place belonged to Mike Sandoval in a MECO, just 11 seconds later. In fourth it was Brian Burgess in a Moulton, an-other 22 seconds further back, and then fifth place was Perry McNeil, in a Lothringer, another 11/seconds later. Two minutes and 31 seconds separated first from fifth. On the second lap things changed a bit. Scaroni held on to the lead, but now he was al-most three minutes in front of Rick St. John, in a Duvel, who'd moved up to second place. Mamer was now third, not quite two minutes back and in fourth it was McNeil, who was running in a lot of dust. Burgess had dropped to fifth place. On the third lap Burgess put Cameron Steele into his car and he recorded the fast lap for the class for the day, and moved the car up into the lead. McNeil was second, about three minutes fur-ther back, and Daniel Folts, in a Seagroves, also had a good lap, and moved into third. Fourth place belonged to Scaroni who'd lost about ten minutes somehow, and in fifth it was Craig Smith, who'd taken over for Mamer. He'd had a plug wire fall off. It was an easy win for Don and Ken Moss at Primm, they drove their Ford Bronco to the Class 3 victory with ease. Kevin Carr was the only entrant in Class 5 at Primm, he raced around the course at an average speed of 44.35mph. Folts dropped out on the last lap, and McNeil ran another steady lap and took the win. He said, "This isn't the car to be in when you're 60 years old!" He'd won by a minute and 52 seconds. Burgess and Steele were second, Page a November 2008 Dusty Times TT

I .. . ' I onds ahead of third place. That was Caspino and Malloy. In fourth it was Pfankuch, who drove all the way, and reported about 20 minutes of down time. He was four minutes behind third. Fifth place went to Hiram Duran, in a Neth, who didn't stop to talk about his day. Marcos Nunez and Norberto Rivera drove their Bug to the Class 5/1600 win, they had less than two minutes in hand at the checkers. Chris Taylor and Josh Quintero drove their Ford Ranger to the Class 7 win at Primm, they had over 20 minutes in hand at the finish. In sixth it was Smith, report-ing "no real problems." Cory Boyer was seventh in a Lothringer, and Arturo Velazco ran eighth in a Porter. Ninth went to Matthew Niles in a Kreger. He was the final finisher. Both Brad Wilson, who broke a front adjuster on his Jimco, and Brian Wilson, who replaced a c.v. on his Jimco, drove four laps, but they were both overtime, so don't get official finishes. Brent Parkhouse, who had a flat when he finished his third lap, and had to change it in the parking lot adjacent to the track, with spec-tators milling about, and people offering advice, also did his fourth lap, but he was also over-time. Steele having driven the final 25 miles with a broken right front trailing arm, and then, to add to his misery, a left front flat, which came off the bean and flopped around. They were a minute and 57 seconds in front of Scaroni and Tom Watson, who'd had no problems on his lap. In fourth it was Mike Sandoval in his Meco, and he'd had one rear flat which he'd had to change himself. Fifth place went to Mamer and Smith, an-other two and a half minutes back. Sixth place went to Dave Callaway and Scott Mapes in their Callaway, and they'd been slowed by a broken rear limiter strap. In seventh it was Bill Hernquist and Scott Reams in a Jimco, each of them having had a flat, Hernquist finished on his. Eighth went to Rick St. John Dusty Times who'd broken a left front trail-ing arm on his Duvel, and had to limp to a pit for repairs. Ninth belonged to Lee Banning, Sr., and Jr., who'd lost a c.v. on their Foddrill, and had two flats. In tenth it was Mike Will-iams, in another MECO, and in 11th, Ty Godde in a Fusion, while John Padgett finished 12th and last, in his Kreger. The 1/2-1600 cars were next to take off with 14 starters. There's a lot of diversity of chas-sis builders in this class also, with ten different builders repre-sented. At the end of the first lap Aaron Hawley had the lead in his Seagroves, with the fast lap for the class for the day, at 1:26:24. He had a little over three minutes on Adam Pfankuch in his Mirage. In third it was Steven Eugenio in a Fraley, having some trouble with his car-buretor loading up. Fourth be-longed to Kevin Smith, in a new Mirage. He thought he was "down on power." In fifth it was Brian Wilson in a Jimco. On the second lap Hawley continued to lead, and now had about two and a half minutes on Pfankuch. Eugenio was still third, about three minutes later, and Smith still ran fourth. But now David Caspino had moved his Lothringer up to fifth place, a minute and 20 seconds behind fourth. Hawley got out of his car and his co-driver, Bryan Freeman got in to do the final two laps. Freeman's nearly a foot taller than Hawley, but they had "pushed the seat back a little" so he could fit. That meant that it wasn't a good fit for either of them. Hawley could barely reach the pedals and Freeman was a 2, 163 Rooms And Suites 60 Table Games 2,300 Slot Machines Poker Room Race & Sports Book 800-Seat Bingo Room 16 Movie Theaters little crowded. He held onto the lead, even though his power steer-ing belt fell off on the third lap. He still had two minutes on Pfankuch at the end of the lap. Eugenio was still third, about three and a half minutes further back, and now Caspino's co-driver, Steve Malloy had their car in fourth. Caspino had caught his arm in the steering wheel somehow, and thought it might be broken. Smith had dropped to fifth. Only two cars had dropped out. Freeman pushed hard on the fourth lap and ran nearly as fast as Hawley's quick first lap. They took the win, finishing nearly nine minutes in front of second place. That was Eugenio, who said, "I did what I could do." He'd had two left front flats in addition to his carb woes, and was only a minute and 21 sec-Class 5 had to do only three laps. Only Kevin Carr came to Primm, and he did his three laps in evenly spaced intervals, the quickest being 1:35:31. Kevin's dad, Bob, rode the last lap. They had no real problems, but lost a coil wire, and said the motor was "heating some", so they took it easy. They thought it was a pretty rocky course, and finished their three laps in 4:52: 12. In Class 5-1600, another three lap morning class, there were eight entries. On the first Continued next page 8 Restaurants 65,000 Sq. Ft.

At the end of the first lap the lead belonged to Armin Schwarz in his Jimco BMW, with a little over a minute on Brian Parkhouse in a Jimco Chevy. In third it was Ronny Wilson and fourth was his brother, Randy, in a Jimco Chevy. Fifth belonged to Billy Gasper in his Porter Chevy and he was three minutes and 21 seconds behind the leader, so it was clearly still anyone's race. Three cars had al-ready dropped out. The Stock Full win went to Kent Kroeker and Frank Martwek, they drove their Dodge 2500 to an 18 second win over second place. Gavin Skilton drove his Honda Ridgeline to the Stock Mini win, but it was close, his competition was 63 seconds behind him. On the second lap Schwarz still led,· and now he had 25-seconds on Gasper, who'd recorded the fast lap for the class for the day, at 1: 12:08. In third it was Dale the best decision, because "I made a couple mistakes -1 had two flats on the last lap - I shoulda just backed it down." Collins was also feeling old, complaining that he was "too old" for this, he was brought up short when Roeseler told him that he was 51, six years older than· Collins. Colllins wasn't the only one feeling old at this event. The comment came over and over from drivers in the Trophy Truck and Class 1 cars. The heat, dust and rough terrain took their toll on the mature driv-ers. In third it was probably the oldest of the Trophy Truck driver, Ron Whitton and his much younger co-driver, Todd LeDuc. They'd had no troubles, and Whitton wasn't complaining about his age. In fourth it was Jefferies, who'd broken a coil spring late in the day. In fifth it was McBeath who'd lost a cylin-der and did the last two and a half laps on seven cylinders. Nick and Larry Vanderwey were sixth in their Ford.

I.AJ2C: 27™ ADAC RALLYE DEUTSCNLAND Sebastien Laeb • Citroen Take The Win PHOTOS: MAURICE SELDEN Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena took the overall win in Germany, they're seen here traversing the German countryside in their Citroen C4. Citroen are sweeping inexora-bly onwards in their world cham-pionship quest, following their 1-2 victory in Germany, their eighth victory running on this event and Sebastien Loeb's sev-enth successive win, coupled for the fourth year running with also winning the Junior category. The BP Ford team suffered not only with their own misfortunes but also by the efforts of the cus-tomer car driven by Francois Duval, which cost the BP Ford team championship points at a critical part of the season. Not-withstanding expectations of rain to a greater or lesser extent, but always to an unpredictable . degree, it turned out to be a dry and warm event. After many years of struggle the Subaru team pulled back to finish strongly and reliably in the points. The other Sebastien, Mr. Ogier, won the Junior category in his' Citroen and heads a Citroen 1-2-3 in the Junior charts. In the six years since Germany was first included in the world rally championship calendar it has become well established on account of uniqueness in the sport. This is not just because of the specialty and variety of the asphalt stages whi-ch it provides, but also because of the vagaries of the weather in the region. The rally is based at Trier, which is close to the Belgium and Luxem-bourg borders. It is a classic event because of its centralised loca-tion within Europe and the huge number of spectators which it attracts, from a large number of countries. The stages are held over three different areas, with three quite individual character-istics. The Moselle Valley stages are held in spectacular hillside vineyards where the high bushes obscure the range of sight for drivers and create their own tun-nel effect. These are very decep-tive for drivers. The Baumholder stages are spectacular on account of the complexity of their routes. They are run on military ground where the surfaces are often bro-ken and covered with dirt. Fi-nally there are the Saarland stages, run on orthodox closed smooth public roads. Trier" pre-sents a historic base, not the least because this is Germany's oldest city. The Porta N igra is the fa-mous landmark of the city and the downtown special stage is run around this spectacular Ro-man ruin. This year the stage was run as the final stage of the event, delightfully named "Circus Maxim us", and created an excit-ing finale to the event. There are not so many route novelties each Sebastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia took the S 1600 JWRC win in their Citroen C2, seen here working their way up the mountain. year.

Daniel Sordo and Marc Marti took second overall honors in Germany, seen here in their Citroen C4 at speed. from people's thoughts. It was raining in Saarbrucken and Frankfurt, how long before it would be falling at the rally? Day 1 6 Stages, asphalt, 108.16kms. From a 40% prediction of rain on Friday, overnight the prediction had come down to 10%, and on the first loop it turned out to be completely dry. "There was some powdery gravel on the stages and this gave me a little understeer", said first driver on the road, Mikko Hirvonen, who was lying equal second with Dani Sordo after the first loop of stages, and 15 .3 seconds be-hind Sebastien Loeb. If the teams sacrificed the correct tyres for Shakedown, the world champi-onship teams reckoned they could run all the rest of the rally on the same type of tyres if con-ditions were constant, assuming they had no deflations. From the start Loeb was away. Like all the other top drivers, ex-cept Petter Solberg and Chris Atkinson in the Subarus, he chose the soft compound tyres, and was leading ahead of Sordo and Hirvonen. Subaru played safe with running the harder tyres, feeling inexperienced with the tyre wear rates on the 2008 cars on tarmac. A broken sensor on Duval's car meant the launch control was not operating prop-erly and gear changing was slow, but he was lying fourth through the first loop, ahead of the two Subarus, with a cautious Jari-Matti Latvala seventh. Toni Gardemeister was not happy, having to use his clutch on sharp junctions. Gigi Galli made a slow start. Among the amateur WRC drivers Mark van Eldik drove 7km on a flat tyre and van Merksteijn Snr. had a leak of wa-ter in the cockpit. On the first three stages, three fastest times for Loeb, and a remarkable battle for fifth place between the two Subarus, after each stage the placings changed! The weather factor was a nightmare. For the afternoon stages, the BP Ford team had calculated that Hirvonen had until 1355 to decide which type of tyres, the Pirelli Soft or Hard, he wanted fitted before he could be on his way. He had to keep these tyres until he finished the afternoon stages, after 1700, over three hours and nearly 60km away. At the midday ser-vice halt Latvala had harder springs fitted to his car and was quicker. He took three seconds off the warring Subarus on Stage 4 and leapt past both of them into fifth place on Stage 5. Duval replaced his softer tyres with harder ones for the after-noon loop, commenting he felt the car was better, but he was no faster. Sordo fitted harder tyres for the second loop and found he was slower, "Under braking and under acceleration I was los-ing a lot of time." This enabled Hirvonen to pull away from him in second place. Loeb, however, was supreme, unbeaten all day. On Stage 5 there was a serious accident when Galli cut a fast right hand corner too much and the car somersaulted into the trees on the outside of the bend. Passing cars assumed it was a wreck from the same stage first time around, but then Bernacchini was seen standing dazed by the car and it was obvi-ous this was serious. The stage was stopped and fast interven-tion crews realised it would be difficult to take Gigi out of the wreckage. It was found he had broken his femur and eventually he was flown to hospital. Mean-while the rally started off again with one more stage to run. Loeb was fastest once again, beating Hirvonen. Atkinson slid off the road for a half minute and then the FIA Safety Delegate ordered the stage to be stopped because too many spectators were in bad places. Interruption times were issued by the Stewards, and Loeb finished the day 19.9 seconds in front of Hirvonen. Chris Atkinson and Stephane Prevot drove their Subaru lmpreza to a sixth place finish overall, seen here under a windmill. In JWRC, Citroen C2 S 1600s started off fast even though the non-championship Renault Clio S 1600 of Kris Meeke started off quicker than them all. Sebastien Ogier started off quickest of the registered drivers but then slid wide on a bend but still beating Prokop into the lead. Shaun Gallagher had a lot of trouble with bad rear brake adjustment which caused him to spin several times. He then drove for 2km with a puncture in Stage 3. Jun-ior drivers had special tyre rules. They always had to run the same type of tread pattern but accord-ing to circumstances they could put cuts into the tread patterns. They were also more restricted in quantities of tyres, and ex-pected to have to refit pre-used tyres towards the end of the event. Alessandro Bettega had bent rear suspension after im-pacting a wheel on Stage 2. Dutch driver Weijs lost his brakes and hit the guard rail with the front of his car and damaged the rear suspension as well. Only one driver stopped during the first loop, this was Albertini who had fuel pressure problems. These cars only made one stage in the afternoon, for the second time Meeke beat all the registered drivers, and Prokop went to bed some 7.6 seconds ahead of Ogier. Weijs still had troubles with his car. Brake problems led to a bro-ken differential so he had to cover Stage 4E in one wheel drive. Fanari struggled round the hairpins with a broken handbrake. Meeke finished the day just l. 1 second behind Prokop. Day 2 8 Stages, asphalt, 159. 76kms. This was the big day. The rally stretched eastwards towards St. Wendel and Baumholder and the day was bright and dry. Over-night Galli had undergone sur-gery at Barmherzige Hospital in Trier, to pin the top of his thigh bone which had fractured. The accident occurred when his Stobart team Ford Focus WRC impacted a tree on the driver's side, having been propelled off the road when the driver encoun-tered a rock beside the track, on the line where he was cutting a bend. It was expected Galli would be released from hospital the following Wednesday (20th August). Doctors estimated he would be unable to walk on the leg for six to eight weeks, and will require physiotherapy after this time. The team therefore did not expect Galli to be able to return to rallying for the rest of the sea-son so, with the next event due on his programme to be the Repco Rally New Zealand (28-31 August), M-Sport had to an-nounce a replacement driver without delay. All the team drivers went out on soft tyres for the first three stages, but once again Hirvonen seemed to be sleepy. The stages were generally familiar but to a great extent run in the opposite directions to before, and one driver after another found the challenge difficult. Hirvonen, Duval and (Petter) Solbert all slid off the road. Urmo Aava spun backwards into a tree and damaged his rear wing which wrecked his C4's higher speed handling characteristics. The Citroen of Loeb and Sordo sailed on through unscathed. Loeb admitted however that it was necessary to be careful, but once again he made best times as Sordo got back into second place, ahead of Hirvonen. Khalid Al Qassimi had a bad morning. "On Stage 8 I hit some small trees." On Stage 9 there was more damage. Latvala ad-mitted he had trouble finding a rhythm, he went off the road at a chicane, "We misjudged the ap-proach to a chicane, and I put the car sideways in order to avoid going off the road head-on. The car ended up in a ditch and eventually people arrived to push us back on the road again." Duval thought he was driving with a flat tyre but found in fact, he wasn't. Andersson dam-aged the Suzuki's rear suspen-sion and then had to stop with driveshaft failure, "The bolts snapped after I cut a corner and was trying to regain the road where there was a step. We were able to swap some bolts around, but then the driveshaft became disconnected and we had to drive the long Stage 10 in three wheel drive mode." Gardemeister had his suspen-sion set-up changed overnight, but then found one of the shock absorbers seemed to be sticking. The Subaru drivers were happy at the improved reliability of their cars but dismayed at how much slower they were com-pared with last year, about 0. 7 second per kilometre. For the long 30km Panzerplatte stage all the top drivers, except for BP Ford driv-ers and Duval, went out on hard tyres. Why did Ford use the hard tyres? Hirvonen, "Well, we had to try something! Sebastien is so good in these conditions, where there is changing grip all the time. That is why he is so fast in Ger-many. On other rallies he goes to sleep first thing in the morn-ing, but here in Germany he is wide awake." Not everything for Sebastien was perfect though. "We came to a chicane where the bales were not where we expected them to be. We touched one!" Sordo confirmed he was feeling great, now. On stage 10 Al Qassimi spun 15 metres from the flying finish while Van Eldik stopped to change a wheel. Galli's co-driver Giovanni Bernacchini, who was unhurt in the crash, visited the Service Park and explained, "The impact was against a tree on the left side of the car. The data recorder (com-pulsory in works team rally cars this season), measured the im-pact at 7.2g force." As the cars headed off for the second loop of the stages, Subaru reverted to hard tyres whereas everyone else chose softs. For the long Panzerplatte at the end of the day, all the works cars reverted again to hard compounds. There was less drama this time though. Atkinson had a puncture on Stage 11, "I cut a corner too much and then had to drive 6km on a flat." Then on the final stage Hirvonen had to drive 8km at the end of the stage on a flat tyre, losing his third place to Duval, "We drove over a place where the surface had broken up and the tyre just deflated." And it was here that Loeb finally failed to score fastest time, in-stead it was his teammate Sordo who did. Loeb was like an un-stoppable machine.

The only difference -Sordo was quicker! Andreas Mikkelsen was happy, "Henning told me how to change my suspension settings and it made a huge difference!" Aava and Rautenbach took soft tyres on their private C4s, which Rautenbach said was a mistake. Al Qassimi continued to have a day of adventures. On Stage 11 the car filled with smoke, "I thought the team had already cured that problem", then on Stage 13 he went off the road into a field full of tomato plants. "I used to like tomatoes, but you have have too many of them!" Van Merksteijn, Snr. retired his Focus with clutch failure. The Junior drivers found the open-ing stage a challenge as well. N iegel had to stop and change a broken wheel. Andrea Cortinovis lost five minutes on Stage 7, sliding into and then out of a ditch. On Stage 8 Prokop spun which let Ogier into the lead, and then on 9 Prokop stopped altogether with alterna-tor failure. All morning Kris Meeke was faster than the JWRC drivers and was again the top two-wheel drive car. Dutch driver Weijs was six minutes be-yond his permitted lateness be-cause of a gearbox lubrication problem and stopped for the day. Burkart had a bad morn-ing, breaking a wheel rim on Stage 7 and damaged a steering arm which caused a tyre to be completely worn out on Stage 10. Kevin Abbring thought he was being careful, driving forever in the middle of the road, until he came to a tightening bend over a blind crest, "I was careful not to cut the corner, but that was the wrong decision. I should have!" He lost 15 minutes until specta-tors were able to get him going again. Ogier was fastest of the Junior drivers on the first four stages in the morning. Meeke continued through the day mak-ing best two-wheel drive times and beating all the JWRC cars. "The deal is that we are not us-ing any of the freedoms to which we are entitled, so for instance we are keeping to the same tyre limitations as the Juniors have. And, of course, I am still within the permitted age limits of the other JWRC drivers!" On Stage 11 Schammel went off and hit a tree which let Gallagher up to fourth place. Ogier was forcing himself to keep up his rhythm. Cortinovis retired, off the road while Fanari stopped with gear-box failure. Meeke continued to the end of the day in majestic command. Day 3 5 Stages, asphalt, 84.97kms. Page 18 Pink sky in the morning -but once again no rain was promised. It was cool, sunny and clear. This was going to be an unprec-edented dry Rallye Deutschland! The big debate centred around Ford with Duval ahead of Hirvonen. Ford wanted Hirvonen to salvage as many points as he could. Arrange-ments between team members are acceptable, but Duval was a Stobart not a BP driver ... though arrangements between different teams are absolutely forbidden ... The Citroen robot driver showed a minor fallibility by stalling on the opening stage. His teammate Sordo was work-ing hard at reaching the finish without problems, "The stages today are narrow and it is very easy to make a mistake." Duval demonstrated his independent spirit by making fastest times on the first two stages of the day and pulled further ahead of Hirvonen, who admitted Duval's speed was hard to match. Latvala had what his team chief Malcolm Wilson said was 'his usual first-stage-of-the-day drama', this time punctur-ing. "I took a crest before a bend too fast and slid into a curb. There was a jump just before the bend so I took the jump carefully. Then I discovered that other drivers jumped higher and completely cleared the curb ... " Mikkelsen also punctured on Stage 15. Atkinson had some small problems getting cleanly off the starting lines but Petter Solberg was smiling. When asked 'when was the last time you have been happy with a rally car', Petter replied, "Don't ask me, there are three stages to go. The answer though is three years ago ... " Rautenbach had dramas trying to start from pare ferme. The car needed bump-starting, but was already stuck in reverse gear.Just in time they got going. Erik Wevers had a terrifying mo-ment when his throttle spring broke and the engine stuck in full revs. He brought the car to a halt and jury-rigged a wire to the throttle pedal but lost a quarter of an hour in the stage. The junior van Merksteijn was now the top Benelux World Rally Car privateer, just behind the British privateer Gareth Jones. Van Eldik had some form of transmission problem. Duval was at fu II speed to the end of the fourth stage of the day, al-ways making fastest times, but then came the superspecial at Trier. On the road to the final stage a shock absorber collapsed and Duval had to drive gently to the finish. He still held third place, 10.1 seconds in front of Hirvonen. In the Juniors, Martin Prokop decided not to restart while Schammel's car was too damaged to carry on. Ogier was in a league of his own at the head of the field. Bettega had overheating brakes, "I'm having to train myself not to use left foot braking so hard." Fanari, having restarted now had an engine problem and was having to top up with oil frequently. Weijs retired when the left driveshaft failed, only ten Jun-iors still running. Meeke still the top two-wheel driver, but lost time with power steering prob-lems on his Clio and then on the final stage a gearbox mount-ing broke which broke an elec-trical cable and he lost five min-utes. This meant Citroen S 1600s finished 1-2 in both the Junior WRC and in their class. In the non-championship Group Ns, Hermann Gassner, Snr., fin-ished ahead of his son ... Hermann, Jr. to make it a fam-ily 1-2 in the category but then Hermann, Snr. was excluded and by default, his son won. To cement the impact of Citroen's devastating domination of this event the team took an eight point lead in the Manufacturer's series, having overhauled their rival BP Ford's earlier lead of nine points in the series in three events. Their driver Sebastien Loeb has now taken a four point lead in the Drivers' series. In the Junior WRC Citroen drivers are lying 1-2-3 with Ogier nine• points ahead of Shaun Gallagher.

The mid-September CORR event at Chula Vista was just a month after the previous CORR races (at Pomona), but there were two well-liked desert races sandwiched between them. Many of the west coast CORR racers are also desert competitors, so there were long hours in the garage and shop, as well as the inevitable budget-ary woes.

The single Buggies kicked off the racing on the full size track, at 12:25 p.m., with 22 cars on the track. They did a couple of pace laps, and then took the green flag for a clean start. At the end of the lap, Kyle Quinn took a bad bounce, hit the K-rail and came to a sudden stop in Turn 6. The right front corner of his car was broken and that was the end of his day, and begin-ning of a long day for the crew ... In the meantime, Tim Pangborn went into the lead, with Curt Geer chasing him and Brock Krahenbuhl in third place. On the third lap some, one was left on his lid in Turn 2, but for the most part, things were going smoothly. Geer had taken over the lead on the sec-ond lap, and was maintaining a steady pace, while Krahenbuhl tried to catch him. Pangborn ran third.

The Competition Yellow came on Lap 6, and at that time it was Geer, Krahenbuhl, Pangborn, Laff and Bryan Free-man. When they restarted things went smoothly, and Krahenbuhl and Freeman en-tertained the crowd by banging on each other as they went down the big hill. Then on the eighth lap Krahenbuhl moved into the lead and Freeman went into second place. Geer was third and pushing hard. On the ninth lap it was Krahenbuhl, Freeman and Geer. But then Geer got past Krahenbuhl for second place. Krahenbuhl was determined to get his position back, pushed a bit too hard and got into the berm in Turn 2. He dropped way back. At the finish it was Freeman, Laff and Geer. When the Single Buggies came back on Sunday there were 21 cars and Cissy Baldwin was on the pole. Racing action started at about 12:20, after a morning filled with practice and Karts. On the first lap Rino Navera rolled over in Turn 2, but lost little time, and then Robert Lansing spun in Turn 5. Otherwise things were or-derly, and Curt Geer had the lead by Lap 2. Behind him it was Baldwin and then Bryan Freeman and Kyle Quinn, whose crew had put in many hours repairing the damage from Saturday's sudden stop. Geer pulled out a long lead as Freeman tried to find a way around Baldwin, who seemed to be using his lines, but at a slower pace. On the fourth lap he managed to edge by in Turn 4, and then went off in search of Geer. Eric Greener devel-oped some problem with Turn 7 and spun out two laps in a row, and Geer was having no problems at all, except that Freeman was slowly catching up. Then it was all academic, as the Competition Yellow came out on Lap 6, and everybody closed up. At this point it was Geer, Freeman, Tim Pangborn, Baldwin and Quinn. Rick Gutierrez developed a left rear flat and headed for the Hot Pit. As the green flag flew again, Freeman was close on Geer and stayed there, and the two of them pulled out a long lead on Pangborn, Baldwin, Quinn, Jeff Knupp and Navera who were all very close. On the 11th lap the order had changed a bit but Geer still led, with Freeman second. But now Knupp was third, Brock Dusty Times Krahenbuhl was fourth, Navera fifth an d Quinn sixth.

Knupp, who was third, said that he'd had a "bad practice" this morning, when he'd been "flipped over", and he was pleased to get such a good fin-ish. On Saturday the Pro Buggies were second on the program, with 25 cars and the first ten qualifiers were inverted for the start. This put Robert Pecoy and Phil Bollman on the front row, with Greg George and Dale Dondel lined up in the fifth row. Rob MacCachren was starting dead last since his car had barely run during qualify-ing. At the green flag he passed six cars by the time he reached Turn 2. Pecoy held the first position for the first lap, wit h Larry Job in second, and Doug Fortin in third place. Someone came to the end of their day in Continued next page Page 21

Marty Hart finished second in the Pro Lite clash on Saturday, took the class win on Sunday and he leads the class in points earned. The Competition Yellow came out for Turn 6. Rodrigo Ampudia was black flagged for reportedly passing on the yel-low (easy to do if the driver is looking far down the course -the spotter needs to be really fast with his alerts). MacCachren headed for the Hot Pit with a left front flat. By the time he came back out he was 20th. Jeff Geiser also made a trip into the Hot pit. Foddrill, all bunched up. George and MacCachren pulled out some distance on third place, which was Dale Dondel, who had somehow passed both his brother and Foddrill to move himself up. Tim Herbst spun between Turns 1 and 2 and finished up parked side-ways for a bit. MacCachren was tight on George, but couldn't quite get past him. Mike Dondel spun in Turn 5, and Doug Fortin drove right over his rear tire, seemingly doing no harm to either. On the 13th lap MacCachren got in front of George for a brief moment, but George quickly went by into the lead. At the finish it was George, MacCachren and Foddrill, who'd gone by Dondel on the final lap. The last lap had some anticlimactic excitement as Foster rolled over in the last turn and Ronco ran into him. Ronco managed to get 14 laps completed, but Fos-ter finished the day a lap shy. During the podium inter-views, George said "I couldn't be happier -I've been looking forward all year long to race with Rob like that!" Said MacCachren, "We knew he was gonna be tough -the points battle is tightening up. We'll do some work on this car and give greg a run for his money." Both drivers had been dealing with carburetion problems during practice, but they seemed to have solved them, at least for the moment. Foddrill said, "A lot of guys are getting a lot faster!" As to the carburetor problems: many of the Pro Buggy teams would like to go to fuel injection, but thus far, there's no consensus with the officials on this matter. Third on Saturday's pro-gram were the Pro 2 trucks, which were also "live on SPEED" and thus, had to start on a very precise time schedule. They did a couple of pace laps, with Jerry Whelchel and Greg Adler in the front row, because they had inverted the first eight qualifiers. They got off to a clean start with Whelchel and Adler switching positions for a couple of turns, but by the time they'd completed the lap Whelchel was in front and Adler was second. In third it was John Greaves, and Ricky Johnson was fourth. On the next lap Jesse Jones spun between Turn 1 and Turn 2, and dropped to nearly last. The course was a bit dustier, with big plumes of dust flying up. And, there were big rocks being kicked up by the tires. Ev-ery vehicle has some kind of screening in front of the driver, so the rocks aren't a huge threat here. Also -the course workers have been instructed to toss them off the track between heats anytime one works it way up. Through the fifth lap the lead group stayed the same, and Carl Renezeder had moved into fifth, and stayed there. B.J. Baldwin was racing here for the first time in this heat, and he'd started at the back because he'd had some steering issues with both of his trucks, and wasn't too sure what might happen. On the restart the lead bunch held their positions, but several trucks got tangled and crowded off the turn and onto the bank. A couple made it down all right, but Evan Evans got too sideways, and rolled over and over on his way to the bottom. Then his truck wouldn't restart and he was buried to the axles in soft dirt. They threw another full course yellow on the tenth lap in or-der to safely get a tow truck in to him and take him away. Somewhere in there Renezeder got past Greaves and moved into third. Now it was Whelchel, Adler and Renezeder in front, but on the 12th lap Renezeder moved into second, with Adler third and Greaves trying to get around him. B.J. Baldwin took a quick run into the Hot Pit, because his crew thought he might have a steer-ing problem after a brief run-in with another truck. Mike Oberg's truck was slow and out of sorts. Whelchel held off Renezeder's attempts to pass, though he had a bad moment between Turns 3 and 4 on the 14th lap when Renezeder did briefly gain the lead.

Whelch el continued to ho ld him off, and mean while, G reaves got past Adler to move into third. And that's how they finished: Whelchel, Renezeder and G reaves. Said Whelchel: "I've got the monkey off my back! Renezeder raced me clean this time -it was just awesome!" When t h ey came back o n Sunday there were 25 Pro 2 trucks and Alan Pflueger shared the front row with Carl Renezed er . Je re my M cGrath and Jerry Whelch e l were in Row 2. Ro b MacCachren and John Greaves, the to p qualifi-ers, were in Row 3. B.J . Baldwin started last. The Gene Woods truck was smoking o n the pa-rade lap, which didn' t bode well. After two pace laps, they waved the green flag and Renezeder got the hole shot. Adler spun in Turn 2 and fell to last, while Renezeder took off with Greaves, Whelchel and Jeremy McGrath in hot pursuit. By the end of the first lap Adler had a right rear flat. For six laps the leaders ran in the same order. Adler got a new tire, Mike Oberg visited the pits, and Travis Coyne lost most of his body panels when he got too much air off the big jump and they blew off. By the end of the sixth lap MacCachren was closing up on Dusty Times Bryan Freeman took a first and a second in the Single Buggy contests, it was Bryan's ninth win of the season. McGrath , and they were fifth and fourth. Coyne's truck was now running badly. The C ompetitio n Ye ll o w came out for Laps 7 and 8, and during this time Adler d evel-oped another right rear flat, and Rodrigo Ampudia had a left front flat and headed for the pits. It was busy in there, as Ricky Johnson pulled in, as did B.J. Baldwin and Bryce Menzies. Whelchel pulled in during the eighth lap and was reported to have a broken upper control arm. He never came out again. On the restart it was Renezeder, Greaves, Hart and MacCachren. Oberg spun in Turn 2, and Hart and MacCachren indulged in some banging between Turn 4 and the jump. Renezeder moved out and away from all this ex-citement. Cenni drove over Greaves and that put Greaves out o f the running, and Ampudia also pulled out. On Lap 11 MacCAchren was sec-ond and Hart was third, with Scott Taylor in fourth place. At the end o f the lap as they started the 12th lap, there de-veloped a three car tangle in Turn 1 with Adler and Robby Woods involved. That brought out a full course yellow for Laps 12 and 13. Cenni went into the pits, and Greaves and Ampudia were both parked above Turn 2. Steve Sourapas was given a black flag, and Gene Woods' truck was towed away. It took a while to get all that sorted out. What was left was a "green, white, checkers". Renezeder went into the 15th lap in the lead, but MacCachren got him coming out of the first turn. As November 2008 Curt Geer collected a third and a first place finish in Single Buggy at Chula Vista, seen here on his way to glory. they took the white flag MacCachren was still in front, with Renezeder right on his tail, and a slight gap developing be-tween them and the rest o f the pack. Scotty Taylo r was third. There was so much banging in Turns 6 and 7, and so much dust, it was impossible to see exactly what was going o n . MacCachren emerged the win-ner, Renezeder was second, Ricky Johnson third and Tay-lor, badly crumpled, was fourth. Said MacCachren in his interview, "At the end we just went for it! I decided whichever way Carl went I'd go the oppo-site." His decision worked out well. Renezeder said, "I ran the inside and sure enough -there he was on the outside -he did a good job. He made it exciting for me." Johnson declared that he'd lost a plug wire, and said, " Mayb e having less p o we r helped me - I was able to get around corners." Saturday's raci ng continued with the Pro-Lite race, which had 22 starters. They inverted the top four qualifiers, and that put Jeff Huseman and Jeff Kincaid on the front row, with Robert Naughton and Rodrigo Ampudia right behind him. They got off to a good start, but before they got all the way around Shannon Campbell fell off the top of the hill. He got too far left, apparently, up at the top, and went over and over down the very straight and high embankment, scattering a clutch of photographers who'd been in a "safe" spot at the bot-tom. Campbell managed to get the truck fired up again, but it was soon discovered to have a Continued next page Page 23

The red flags came out to indicate a full stop and restart. Aaron Daugherty went off to the Hot Pits with a flat, and Chris Brandt was parked in the in-field. Brandt and Campbell were both done for the day. The photographers moved over, and they had a restart. It was a clean start, but Todd Cuffaro spun at the top of Turn 1 and Bobby Altamirano had some trouble with the K-Rail between Turns 2 ·and 3, but got moving again. Kincaid, up at the front of the pack, took over the lead, with Huseman second, and Ampudia third. On the second lap Naughton IIPARETIREM II JACKS made a quick trip into the Hot Pit and emerged dead last. Alan Ampudia developed a right rear flat. Meanwhile, Kincaid built a nice lead and Huseman was sol-idly in second, as Marty Hart worked up through traffic to take over third place. Casey Currie ran fourth and Brian Deegan was fifth. Rodrigo Ampudia developed a left rear flat. Rodrigo wanted to pit for a new tire, but his brother was in the family pit, he went around another lap, then, as he passed the exit from the pits, he saw that his brother was done, so he decided he'd rather go in It was a third and a first place finish in Kart Ji 1 for Zachary Hunt, he sits in second place in the season long point race. backwards (well, through the back, door so to speak) rather than do another lap on the flat. This caused some consternation for the flagman, and he made Rodrigo wait 'ti! Alan got out, costing each of them precious seconds. But it was still prob--ably a better choice than doing another la"p. As it was, Rodrigo and Alan were both a lap down by the time the full course yel-low came out on Lap 7. Kincaid still led, with Huseman second and Hart in third. Currie was fourth and Deegan was fifth. They did two yellow laps, and restarted on Lap 9. Kincaid held on, Huseman and Hart chased hard. Currie went off the side of Turn 1, much as Evans had done in the previous race, but he didn't roll, and made it back onto the course before Turn 2. However, he was excited, and messed up, spin-ning in Turn 2, and then got into the berm, and was last by the time he was all settled in and going again. In the mean-time, Huseman disappeared. He just faded out of the pic-ture and did no more laps. Hart moved into second and Chad Hord was third now. Somebody had a right rear wheel smoking, and Daugherty parked at the edge ofTurn 5 (the base of the hill), smoking and obviously done for the day. Currie's truck was no longer running well, and he was slowly making his way around. On the white flag lap it was Kincaid, Hart and Hord, with Naughton fourth. Hart put on a serious last lap drive to try to get Kincaid, but Kincaid's a master at staying in front, and he took the win. Hart and Hord finished behind him, with Javier Sacio in fourth place in what looked like a new truck. Pl#t:H BOSSES II U#IBAll t:UPS "'!!lif,#WIIBB Sunday's Pro-Lite event came late in the day, starting at about 4: 10 p.m. They watered the track, and had the 24 trucks do a couple of pace laps, before getting off to a clean start. Casey Currie and Marty Hart were on the front row, with Chad Hord and Jeff Huseman starting behind them. At the end of the first lap Currie led with Huseman second and Hart in third. Altamirano spun between Turns 6 and 7 and that sent him to last place. At the end of the second lap it was still Currie, Huseman and Hart, with Rodrigo Ampudia in fourth. They were already be-coming quite strung out. On the third lap it was more of the same, and Altamirano, who apparently had the wrong groove on his tires, spun in Turn 5. For another lap it looked the same and then Huseman got sideways in Turn 7 and three trucks went by him. Now it was Currie, Hart, Kincaid, Naughton and Huseman. But on the next lap Naughton's truck took sick, and he went into the pit. He never came back out. As they finished Lap 6 it was Currie, Hart, Kincaid and Huseman, who was making a nice recov-ery. On the next lap Hart slid by Currie right after Turn 7, so when the Competition Yel-low came out it was Hart, Currie, Kincaid and Huseman. Page 24 November 2008 Leroy Loerwald had rolled in Turn 7, and he got going again, but his front end was bent, so he retired. They decided to have a second yellow lap, and Bruce Fraley took advantage and made a visit to the pit. On the restart it was Hart, Currie, Kincaid, Huseman and Rodrigo Ampudia. Matt Barney and Heath Carpenter got turned around in Turn 1, and a local yellow came out to clear Carpenter away. Then Kincaid lost his right rear tire, and driving on just the wheel, dropped to the very back of the pack. Now the order was Hart, Currie and Huseman. Brian Deegan didn't made it through Turn 7 on the 12th lap, and had to be towed away. On the white flag it was Hart, Currie and Ampudia, and that's how it went to the finish. In his interview Hart said it was an "awesome race -clean, hardcore!" He went on to say that he has to "drive 'em as hard as they'll probably go!" Currie, a little disappointed with sec-ond place, said, "We shoulda had it today -one more lap and I would have got it back." The Pro 4 trucks were Saturday's fifth event, and they took off at about 4:05 p.m., with a lot of banging in Turn 2, but no problems. Steve Barlow and Tim Herbst made up the front line, with Curt LeDuc and Troy Herbst in Row 2. LeDuc went into the lead, chased by Troy Herbst. But as they went into Turn 1 on their second lap Troy went oH the embankment, and dropped to last. That is, last except for Chad Hord in Douglas' truck, which had started the required full lap down. On the second lap Kyle LeDuc; went into the lead with his dad in second place and Tim Herbst third. On the third lap Renezeder moved into third, and Steve Barlow was fourth as Herbst dropped to fifth. Kyle LeDuc continued to lead and built some space between him-self and Curt LeDuc and Renezeder, who were doing some rubbing on each other between Turn 1 and Turn 2. Curt held off Renezeder for another two laps, but then not only did Renezeder get by, but so did Rick Huseman, who moved into third. Then the Competition Yellow came out on the seventh lap. They made it into a two lap Competition Yellow, and on the restart it was still Kyle LeDuc in front, Renezeder second and Hus·eman third. LeDuc senior was fourth, but his truck sounded sick, and others began to pass him. He was last by the tenth lap. On the 11th lap, with LeDuc, Renezeder and Huseman still at the front of the pack, Josh Baldwin got sideways in Turn 1 and then Travis Coyne, who just happened to be in that line, nudged him, and Baldwin rolled down the em-bankment. He fired his truck up and got back on the course with very little loss of time, but he lost six positions, and was not happy. By Lap 11, as LeDuc contin-ued to lead, Rene zed er was try-ing more and more approaches to catching and passing him, but nothing was working. The black flag came out for Coyne Dusty Times

(apparently for the nudge of Baldwin), and still another racer was the victim of Turn 1. Mike Jenkins rolled off it, fired his truck up and went on, while Adrian.Cenni rolled up above, between Turns 3 and 4, remov-ing all the body panels on one side of his truck, and going on as if nothing had happened. LeDuc took the win, with Renezeder second and Greaves third. During the post race in-terview on the podium, the an-nouncer asked Renezeder about his early duel with Curt LeDuc -said Carl, "I don't ever like to complain ... " The Sunday Pro 4 race, which was being filmed for Oc-tober release o n NBC, started at about 3:30 in the afternoon. Josh Baldwin and Travis Coyne were in the front row; Rick Huseman and Troy Herbst were in Row 2. There were 15 trucks, and one of them was the Scott Douglas entry, driven by Chad Hord and starting a lap down. The start was clean and Coyne got the hole shot with Baldwin second. At the start of the second lap, Baldwin appar-ently sensed some serious prob-lem with his truck and pulled out before Turn 1, done for the day. Greaves moved up to second place, and Huseman was third. But in Turn 1 of the third lap Huseman got by Greaves when Greaves got into the berm in Turn 1. Huseman then caught up to Coyne and began to worry about his rear bumper. Meanwhile, Kyle LeDuc had passed Greaves, and Greaves was trying to work back around him, while Renezeder was being chased by Cenni. In Turn 1 of the fourth lap Huseman passed Coyne in Turn 1 to take over the lead. Jerry Daugherty came to grief in Turn 1, and was hung up on the K-Rail. That brought out a full course yellow so they could move a tow truck in to free him. Steve Barlow hustled into the Hot Pits, and never came out. They were ready to restart after Geoffrey Cooley makes it look easy, he took the win both days in the Kart Jr 2 events, seen here ready for an off balance landing. two yellow laps, but the flagman didn't like the way the trucks were lined up, so he let them go around a third time. On the re-start, it was Huseman, LeDuc, Coyne and Greaves, and a couple positions further back in the pack, the senior LeDuc, Curt, went by Renezeder in Turn 2. On the next lap, Renezeder went back by k LeDuc. Meanwhile, Huseman·, Kyle LeDuc and Greaves led the pack. Kyle was slowly chasing on Huseman, and on the 12th lap he went by him at the end of Turn 2. As LeDuc stretched his lead Greaves passed Huseman on Turn 1. Now they were fairly evenly paced: LeDuc, Greaves, Huseman and Renezeder. Then there was a big gap back to Cenni, and then Curt LeDuc. Renezeder got back around Huseman, and he was slightly handicapped by a bit of fender that kept blowing up and ob-scuring some of his line of sight. At the finish that's how it was: LeDuc, Greaves and Renezeder. In their finish line interviews Greaves said, "I waited too long to engage -he runs a good race -next time I'll go after him a little earlier." Renezeder, thinking along the same lines, said "I was a little too conservative at the beginning. And - I had a front fender blowing into my line of . . " v1s10n. The final event on Saturday was the UTV race, which had 21 entries. Jacob Person had the early lead, with Chad George in second place. But on the third lap, with Person still lead-ing, George fell back, his vehicle still moving, but way slow. Now Dan Kelly took over the lead, with Person second. It all closed up with the fourth lap Compe-tition Yellow, but not before Jeffrey Spooner moved into sec-ond place. On the restart they main-tained their order, gradually spreading out again. Kelly, who started 15th, led the balance of the event to take the win. Spooner was second and Cory Weller moved up to take third. Only 13 of the 21 starters fin-ished the heat. Sunday's final event was also the UTV race, with 21 vehicles o n the track. They started at al-most 4:30 and R.J. Anderson got the h o le shot, but Todd Arthur got past him after Turn 2 and Jeffrey Spooner ran third. Arthur pulled out a good lead, and Chad George went by Anderson at the bottom of the big hill on the second lap to take over second place. They ran another lap in that order, and the last vehicle in line rolled over all by himself in Turn 6, putting himself out of the race. Parker Grabowski had a win and a 14th place finish in the Kart Modified races, Parker leads the point race for his class. Michael Harrison, completely besmirched with mud finished 13th and first in the Kart Modified events, seen here flyin' high. Meanwhile, Arthur, George, Anderson and Van Beekum led the race. Then it was Arthur, George and Van Beekum, and in the close quarters up at the top of the ridge, someone nudged Van Beekum and he spun around, and apparently suffered terminal damage to his vehicle. Now it was Arthur, George and Anderson at the front. At the finish it was Arthur, George and Anderson. During his interview Arthur said he'd "got the bugs worked out of the new car", which certainly will make him tough to beat. George said his "car works great - I was giving it everything I could give." The 16 year o ld Ander-son declared that he'd "been chasin' these guys all season -I'm getting closer and closer." It made a good finish to an entertaining weekend. In the interim, Jim Baldwin, head of CORR has announced that the October 25, 26 event at the Primm track has been. cancelled. Citing "the current credit crisis", Baldwin added one day to the early December finale, making it a Friday, Sat-urday and Sunday event, and cutting the season short by just one day of racing. The 2009 schedule is expected to be re-leased shortly.

Butch's Speed Shop had set up their trailer in the Tech In-spection area and several racers visited them in need of merchan-dise for race day along with some nice to haves. BORE, as always, values a sponsor like Butch's, bringing products to the racers that get them through the race. And speaking of spon-sors it cannot be stressed enough the value to BORE in the way of the Red Garter Hotel and Casino (main sponsor), Colo-rado Commercial Services, Smith Construction, ACE En-gineering and Bruce Cochran (Powder Shop) sponsorship. Without our valued sponsors, BORE wouldn't be able to put on the class racing that it pro-vides to our race teams. Thank you all very much! In addition to our valued sponsors is the BORE volunteers that make the registration, vehicle technical inspections, checkpoints, start/ finish flagmen, course setup and teardown, and finally those folks who go back and repair the course after everyone has fin-ished and gone home. There isn't enough that can be said for the folks who repair the track, especially after this year's race. This small team of folks with two tractors, four-wheelers and a lot of water spent a combine<;! 30 hours repairing the course from a hard day's racing. Their efforts pay untold dividends ensuring BORE continues to be able to race our public lands. Next time you come across Glenn Cain, Greg (Kwazi) Kimoto, Brian Dick, and Mike Chamberlain let them know their efforts are appreciated. Now for the racing: BORE had seven classes for the season opener: Class 1 buggy, Class 10 buggy, Class 8 truck, Class 1/2-1600 buggy, Class 7 truck, Class 9 buggy, and finally Sportsman. First to hit the course was the two entries of Class 1 buggy. John Uibel piloting the number 173 was off and running but had major problems in the opening lap and was sidelined before completing Lap 1. Tom Wood took the green flag and never looked back. He ran all laps and took the checkered flag not only finishing the race, but achieved the Class 1 top honors and the overall fastest vehicle to get the overall champion. Tom, knowing that his only class com-petitor was out could have coasted through the course and get the class win, however, the competitor in him went full out to capture the overall fastest on the course for the day! Way to go Tom for setting the standard for all to reach! The overall out-come: 1) Tom Wood, 2) John Uibel. Kenny McKnight drove his Red Garter Ford pickup to the Class 7, Mini Metal win, he had an hour on his competition at the flag. It was a nice gold medal win for Dave Morse in the Class 9 Challenger race, he had more than 20 minutes in hand when the checkers flew. The next to pay homage to the silt beds was the Class 10 buggies. There were four com-petitors for this race. The Class Page 26 November 2008 Dusty Times

First to take the green flag was the 1081 of Larry Schmueser. After the 1st lap Larry had dropped to third place some 39 minutes back from first place. Larry was ex-periencing mechanical problems that slowed him down but kept in the race. By the second lap Larry had overcome the me-chanical issues and now had a hair thin grip on first place by a mere nine seconds. Larry never looked back after getting into first and continued to increase his lead by the end of the third lap to 56-1/2 minutes and would keep the first place tak-ing the checkered flag becoming the 2008 season opening Class 10 winner. Great job to Larry and his crew for keeping it go-ing. Layne Brown was next on the course and by the end of the first lap had a firm grip on the second place. Layne kept the pedal firmly to the floor, but had slipped to the third place position at the end of the sec-ond lap. Mechanical problems would befall Layne during the third lap which would sideline him for the rest of the race. Dustin Miller was the third Class 10 vehicle to meet the course; unfortunately Dustin would not complete the first lap due to rne-cha ni cal problems. Th!l last buggy was driven by Ryan Howard and by the end of the first lap Ryan was firmly in first place by almost eight minutes. Ryan continued in the Class 10 battle, however, had slipped to the second position by only nine seconds. Ryan apparently was troubled by mechanical prob-lems and by the end of the third lap had secured second place in Class 10 but succumbed to troubles in the final lap and was sidelined. The top three places KING ----------OFF-ROAD RACING SttOCl(S Dusty Times were: 1) 1081 Larry Schmueser, 2) 1199 Ryan Howard, 3) 1099 Layne Brown. Next to hit the northeast Ne-vada desert was Class 8, Heavy Metal Trucks. BORE had 12 en-tries in the big truck class and they proved to be the "heavy" hitters this day. The Class 8's have a reputation of running hard and usually rely heavily on welders and big hammers to keep them going, unfortunately that proved to be not enough as only five of the 12 entries cap-tured the checkered flag. First to take the green flag was racing veteran Glen Wise, piloting the 857. Glen ran hot and fast but settled for fifth position at the end of the first lap. Glen kept the throttle full open but ended up dropping to Position #6 at the close of Lap 2. Not to be kept in the middle of the pack, Glen raised the 857 forward two positions to capture the fourth position and not settling for that, pushed his Class 8 harder and slipped into the third posi-tion. By the end of the day Glen accepted the third place Bronze medal, proving that never giv-ing up pays big in off road rac-ing. Mike Sims was next to take to the dirt and by the close of the first lap was in solid seventh. Mike would start heading to the front of the pack and at the end of Lap 2 had improved two po-sitions to fifth. Although Mike had great expectations and was forging his way to the front, he was sidelined for mechanical problems that could not be overcome. Better running next time Mike and Simco Racing. Mike Hickey was next piloting the 877. Although Mike started in the third position he had slipped to ninth by the close of the first lap. Mike, always look-ing to improve started working his way back and by the end of the second lap improved his position to seventh place. Again (J)BEAR We carry a full line of v~ OFFA~HTING FILTERMAG~ ~~ November 2008 with ever-improving as his pri-mary goal Mike had again im-proved by two positions and was firmly in fifth place. As Mike took the checkered flag, Mike again improved his final position to fourth place. Mike put on a hell of a battle and corning from ninth place to fourth was a great showing. Next off the line was Gary Hull driv-ing the 872. Gary ran a steady race all day and equaled his Lap 1 and 2 place of eighth posi-tion. Gary improved that by the end of the third lap by two po-sitions and had sixth place firmly in his grips. Gary wasn't satisfied with sixth and captur-ing the checkered flag, he had improved to end the day in fifth place. Great work Gary. Next to set the Class 8 standard was Monte Tibbetts. Monte has a reputation for running fast, hard, and straight to the front and this day was no exception. Continued next page Page 27

Jason's day was not to be though; he dropped to third position on Lap 2 & 3 and would never see the checkered flag on this day due to mechanical breakage. The top three finishers were: 1) Kenny McKnight, 2) John Ses-sions, 3) Jason Hutter. The next major class was the Class 9 buggies. We had five en-tries for the first race of the 2008 season and these folks were ready for the New Year. Dean Blakely took the opening green flag for the Class 9s. Dean piloted the 999 tried and true buggy to a first lap, second place position and slipped to third position at the end of Lap 2. Dean regained the second spot by the end of Lap 3 and wouldn't let go getting the checkered flag and capturing second place. Next off the line was the 936 of Cam Blackley. Veteran driver, Cameron is as hard driving, true sportsman as I have ever seen. Cam is always around the front of the pack, however, this day would prove too much and Cam out was during Lap 3. Better luck next time Cam. The third buggy off the line was the 996 of Dave Morse. Dave historically has set the bar for all Class 9s to achieve and today was no dif-ferent. Dave firmly in first place after Lap 1 by almost 10 min-utes. Lap 2 had dropped Dave's lead to four and a half minutes but still firmly in first. By Lap 3's end Dave had increased his lead back around 11 minutes and by the end of lap 4, Dave got the checkered flag and held a comfortable 23 minute lead, capturing Class 9 first place. Randy Kerr was next to take the green flag and had a well rounded steady race all day. Randy was in the fifth spot at the end of Lap 1 and took the fourth position after Cam was sidelined. Randy would stay in the fourth position for the rest of the race. Randy, a lot has to be said for just completing the required number of laps. I raced for many a year and only saw the checkered flag once. That doesn't say a lot for me, but says a lot for you. Good Racing and keep it going! The last Class 9 was piloted by Rod Stevenson. Rod, like Randy, ran a good Dusty Times steady race and cocked off four We only had one Sportsman show capabd1t1es 1t Oakley had 1:iUK.E website at: steady laps to capture the vehicle; a Class 1/2-1600 buggy ran in the 1/2-1600 class that All in all Bronze third place finish.

"Flawless". Woo-Hoo! It was Course A, counter-clockwise, in Lucerne Valley, CA -off Bessemer Mine Road; Sat-urday, June 16th, 2008. Sixty-three of the 83 entries were in the 1400 and 1450 class series; 76 percent. More trucks of all sizes and shapes and colors and makes and models and setups than this Ace Reporter has ever seen lined up in staging. Mass quantities. Two-by-two they started. It was a flat-out drag race, uphill, for about three miles, from S/F to the first Rock Pile. Sweet. The winds were blow-ing fast enough to clear the ·course of dust for the next duel-ing duo. The winds kept blowing - all night long. Gusts up to 27 mph. It was a 1-o-n-g and dusty night -under the light of a full moon. Classes 1, 10, 1400 and 1600 raced through the dark desert night for four laps; 200 miles. Three laps for Classes 300, 900, 1200, 12-Unlimited, 1300, and 1450; 150 miles. Thirty-three major course changes, two check-points, three remote pits, one RX. Drop-offs and big dips; The Sand Hill; watch out for that "ROCK". Strap in -hold on -we're off and racing -and it's a wild ride! CLASS 1: Four laps; 200 miles. Three In spite of a long third lap, it was a Class 10 win for Larry Dileva at the MDR night race, seen here leaping through the night. entries, two starters, two finish-ers, one DNS. Adam House-holder just flat out hauled *** the whole way. The blue and or-ange #24 completed the whole thing in 3: 12: 14 at an average speed of 62.4 mph. Faster than a speeding locomotive. With clear course in front of him, Householder got the first 50 mile lap done in just 0:44:53 -and won the Fast Lap Award at 67.4 mph. Close to the speed of thrill, I'd say. The OPS clocked #24 at 108 mph across the Soggy Dry Lake lakebed. Householder ran strong all night long in his "old school" 383CI, carbureted, turbo 400 trans-powered "Tro-phy Truck" to win First Place Overall and First Place in Class. Householder was flat out 'fly-ing'! "The course was either**** or fast. The truck ran flawless, and FAST", said Householder. "We slowed down to fuel up on Lap 2. We won AND overalled!" The thrill of victory. It was still a close and com-petitive race for Householder in #24 with Steve Garcia in car # 150. The first lap only saw a 0:00:48 margin of gap between the two speedsters. Lap 2 was a dead-heat at 0:50: 13 for both racers. There was only a 0:00:34 split between the two at the end of Lap 3. Alas -Garcia had trouble on Lap 4 in car # 150, and finished in Second Place in Class in 3:26:52 at 55.3 mph., a final margin-of-victory of 0:29:34 for Householder in #24. The finish was also good enough for a Third Place Over-all for Garcia. CLASS 10: Four laps; 200 miles. One en-try, one starter, one finisher. Larry Di Leva beat the dust and the desert to win First Place and Fast Lap honors in class in car # 1050. Di Leva completed the required laps in 6:12:05 at 32.3 mph. Di Leva also won Fast Lap honors on Lap 1 at 41.4 mph in 1:12:39. CLASS 1400: Four laps; 200 miles. Four-teen entries, 13 starters, eight finishers; five DNFs, one DNS. John Vaughan was first off the line at the green flag, and first at the checkered flag, in truck #1428. There wasn't any race-leader changes in class, in be-tween. Vaughan got it all done in 3:30:34 at 57.0 mph. That finish won #1428 First Place in Class with a 0: 15: 14 margin-of-victory in class -and Second , I Place Overall. Vaughan also won Fast Lap in Class on Lap 1 in 0:47:44 at 63.2 mph. Neal Weaver started slower in the Nunez Construction truck # 1425 and picked up speed as the race went on.

Toyota to the checkered flag in 3:45:48 at 53.1 mph to win Sec-ond Place in Class by a 0:01:06 margin-of-victory ahead of Dan Vance in truck # 1429. "The course was either very rough, or fast as ****," said Weaver. "We ran super hard in the back stretch and going by the pits on both sides. No problems all day." Weaver's most fun? -"Doing 90 mph across the dry lakebed!" Dan Vance got to the checkers in 3:46:42 at 52.9 mph to win Third Place in Class in the Total Chaos truck #1429. Vance drove Laps 1-2 with co-driver 'Fish' alongside in the spare seat. Fish took over the wheel duties for Laps 3-4 with co-driver Nathan Batchelder along for the ride. "The course was really rough. The Rock Pile section went good. The motor kept cutting out on Laps 3-4, but other than that -we had no issues." Robert and Chris Anderson, San Clemente, CA, won Fourth Place in Class in the Ford Ranger truck # 1413 at 42. 7 mph in 4:41:15. The Anderson brothers were the 1450 Class Champs last year. "We had no flats all night, but the engine computer messed up", the Andersons said. That Fourth Place win was a 0:05:26 margin-of-victory ahead of Ben Wright in truck # 1422.

Jeffrey was the big winner in the Class 1600 battle, he had about 35 minutes on his competition when he took the flag. CLASS 300: Three laps, 150 miles. Two entries, two starters, two DNFs.

Bilek got it done in 3:25:26 at 43.8 mph to win Second Place in Class for the night. Bilek reported "No· flats. Flawless. The fast sections are fun. The whole thing was Fun!" Good job.

Micklus also won the Fast Lap honors on Lap 1 in 1:10:52 at 23.4 mph. "Our race was uneventful. The course was dusty and nasty, and tore up bad the last two laps", said Micklus. "It was awesome!", Mondragon said. Michael Munez won the slowest lap hon-ors in car #1351 in 2:15:33 on Lap 3, but still won Second Place with a total elapsed time of 4:42:50 at 31.8 mph. That was a 0:01: 13 margin-of-win ahead of Juan Munoz in car #1309. Juan Munoz -Norwalk, CA -won Third Place in Class in 4:44:03 at 31. 7 mph. "We didn't have any brakes most of the race" reported Munoz. What a difference a silly 1/10 of a mph a finish can make. First, you must beat the desert. It helps to have brakes, too. It was a very 1-o-n-g race night for Ray Promer in car #1313. "Let's just say it was the longest night of our lives. We left Or-ange County at 2:00 am to ar-rive at the race site by 6:00 a. m.

November 2008 Bryan Yonan was the only one in his class but he completed his three required laps with ease, finished with a 35.3mph average. By then - I was ready to go. My passengers were Chris Martinez from CM Motorsport (Lap 1), Dawn Locher, my girlfriend (Lap 2) and Brandon Alves (Lap 3). The first and second laps went off without a hitch, how-ever by the third lap my alter-nator wire came loose so we had to push start the car. It prob-ably wouldn't have been so bad if 'someone' in the Pit Crew had disconnected the jumper box prior to the push start -and 'someone' also broke off my side mirror in the process. About 30 minutes into the last lap, the link pins came loose from the front end so I had to fight the steering which almost broke my thumb at one point, About six hours and 12 minutes later, I passed the finish line. Honestly -for my first race -I'm just glad I finished,." Was it any fun? CLASS 1450: Three laps, 150 miles. Forty-eight entries, 41 starters, 25 fin-ishers, 17 DNFs, seven DNS. Oh My Gosh, golly, gotham, batman! Mass quantities of 1450's. They were stacked up thick in staging. Ryan Lewis in truck #1466 was in the third set of side-by-sides to start at the green flag. Lewis finished in First Place in 2:54:36 at an av-erage speed of 51.3 mph, with a 0: 11 :49 margin-of-victory ahead of the Second Place winner -Craig Reynolds in truck# 1456. Reynolds started in the fifth set of side-by-sides in class at the green flag. At the end of Lap 1, Reynolds in #1456 was in the lead by five minutes in front of Lewis in # 1466, and Tyler Fain in truck # 1459 was only 17 seconds be-hind Lewis. Reynolds won the Fast Lap Award on Lap 1 at 57.6 mph in 0:52:08. At the end of Lap 2, Fain was in the lead by 45 seconds in front of Lewis. Adam Filbin was in third spot in truck #1485, six seconds ahead of Mike Koenig in truck #1476. Garrick Freitas in truck # 1463 was only 20 seconds be-hind Koenig. Reynolds had dropped to sixth spot in truck #1456, almost 20 minutes be-hind the leader. The class leader at the end of Lap 2, Tyler Fain in the Pump Gas Racing truck #1459, DNF'd on Lap 3. Fain and his co-driver/wife Alexis brought their race ride all the way from Escondido in San Diego County, CA., only to break the third member at the road cross-ing -about 100 yards before the checkered flag. Yep. That close -and No Cigar. Running at the front of the outlaw pack and you get within less than a quar-ter-mile from the border -and your horse kicks the bucket. That will! ruin your day. Talk about "no rules" outlaw racing in Class 1450 - # 1459 is a Toyota chassis, equipped with a Ford 5.0L motor, a six-speed T56 tranny, and a Ford 9 in rear end. Uh huh. Ryan Lewis from San Diego, CA stepped on the gas pedal a little harder on Lap 3 in the Bozen Productions Toyota Tacoma # 1466 and finished in First Place in 2:54:36 at 51.5 mph; with a 0: 11:49 margin-of-victory. Lewis drove it all with co-driver Jeremy Kite in the spare seat; and Christen Van Horne, too. "it was a smooth race", said Lewis. "We race once a year. We passed three 1450's, and seven that were broke down. We lost a bedside panel somewhere. We went pretty wide open through the washboard stuff." Sounds like FUN to me, too! Craig Reynolds, who was almost 20 minutes off the lead pace in #2456 at the end of Lap 2, came out of the dark-horse , shadows to win Second Place in Class at 48.3 mph in 3:06:25; with a 0:05: 17 margin-of-victory ahead of Garrick Freitas in truck #1463. Reynolds also won the Fastest Lap Award in Class on Lap 1 at 57.6 mph in 0:52:08. Freitas and co-driver Steve Shahan, from Tulare, CA took the Third Place win n 3:11:42 at 46.9 mph in the First Bank of Dad (Dan Freitas) race truck # 1463. Freitas races a half-ton 2WD Chevy with cus-tom A-arms up front. "The overflow tank puked. We fin-ished!" Enough said. Mike Koenig and co-driver Troy Robinson came all the way from Sacramento, CA to win Fourth Place in Class in truck # 1476 in 3: 14:06 at 46.4 mph. "We didn't have any issues all night", reported Koenig. Robinson reported his most fun all night was "passing other trucks". Koenig was ahead of the Fifth Place winner, Adam Filbin in truck #1485, by 0:01:29 at the finish line. Filbin completed the race in 3 :15:35 at 46.0 mph. Filbin was ahead of the Sixth Place winner, Melissa Thornton in truck #1451 (my old#), by 0:01:21 at the check-ers. Thornton finished in 3:16:56 at 45.7 mph. The top six finishers in class, all finished within about 20 minutes of each other. I can't write and do in-terviews that fast. Post-tech was getting rather crowded at this point. Move 'em out!

Ryan Lewis drove his good looking truck to the class win, he's seen here flying towards the checkered flag. FINISHED: 45. A 38 percent carnage asada rate. 62 PER-CENT FINISHED. It was bru-tal racing conditions in the thick dust, in the dark, under the light of a full moon. The native winds were working their wings off. They kept the course mostly clear, unless you hap-pened to be on the receiving side. My eyes were totally sand-blasted. Vysine in mass quanti-ties. Most of the finishers re-ported the course was "Chewed Up!" I guess the DNFs found out the same thing; the hard way. Fifty-eight percent of the total entries were in Class 1450. Fifty-six percent of the total fin-ishers were in Class 1450. Sixty-one percent of all the Class 1450 starters, also finished. Adam Householder won First Place Overall in his "old school" Trophy Truck #24; in 3:12:14. Ray Promer won Last Place Overall in #1313; in 6: 12:31. #24 won Fast Lap Overall at 67.4 mph. # 1313 won Slowest and Longest Lap Overall at 21.9 mph.

Brian Groves in truck #1490 was only 36 seconds behind Reeves for the Tenth Place win in class in 3:37:59 at 41.3 mph. This is competitive, open desert, off road racing at its best -Race Fans. I'm having fun, at least -and hope you are too. Court LeGare in the ORA/Baja Shop Racing truck #1493 found the finish line in 3:39:50 at 40.9 mph for the 11th Place fin-ish. LeGare is from Anaheim, CA and races a '91 Ford Ranger with I-beams, a 3-link rear sus-pension, with coil-overs on all four corners. Justin Scott was the co-driver. "Lap 1 was very fast", said LeGare. "It was really dusty and hard to see, and we nailed a huge boulder. The truck handled kinda sloppy af-ter that". A.J. Steeber was next in line to find the finish line in truck # 1495. Steeber won the 12th Place honors in 3:46:47 at 39. 7 mph. John Alagna, from Chino Hills, CA piloted his Toyota leaf-spring 'Trifecta' race truck # 1453 around the course about one minute later in 3:47:57 at 39.5 mph to win 13th Place in class. Taylor Wolpert and Roy Coon were the co-drivers. "The course was pretty smooth for us", said Alagna. "We had a bad ground to the battery cable, and then took a bad line at the Rock Pile on Lap 1 and got a little side-ways, but we had no flats and got lots of passes". Trevor Leach, from Palm Springs, CA got all his fun done in 3:57:00 at 38.0 mph in truck # 1491 to win 14th Place. Leach races a 1995 Ford F150. Courtney Dawson was the co-driver. "We overheated the whole race; 210-240F", Leach reported. "It was a Blast!", Dawson said. "Awe-some!" Dawson said her most fun was "Honking the horn for people to get out of our way!" The final bunch of finishers in Class 1450 were no less com-petitive than those at the front. Check out some of the times be-tween these racers. I call that pretty**** close racing after 150 miles, and mucho fun playing in the dirt along the way to the checkered flag. 15th Place: McLUVIN, MIGUEL 1460 4:02:46 37.1 mph. 16th Place: SANDS, STEVE 1472 4:03:38 36.9 MPH -Long Beach, CA.

Vince Moralis got the co-driver dudes for Laps 1-2, when first-timer and 'virgin' rookie co-driver Katie Lambert got into the thrill seat. "It was Fun!", Lambert said. "I liked it a Lot!

JACKPOT 225 Ulllel Takes The overall TExT & PHOTOS: MIKE CHAMBERLAIN John Vibe/ drove his Class 1 heavy to the gold medal and he was able to take the overall win as well at the BORE Jackpot 225. John Uibel captures the over-all top honors; John piloting his Class 10 buggy beat out Monte Tibbitts in his Class 8 truck by only 4 minutes 45 sec-onds to capture the BORE July 4th race overall. Great racing John and a well deserved win! The BORE annual July 4th race was as exciting as in past races here at Jackpot, Nevada. Jackpot is located in the North-East corner of Nevada and the course actually crosses into Idaho along the Northern por-tion of the route. Jackpot has been the July 4th BORE racing scene for what some say is over 20 years and a better place to spend the 4'h of July I can't think of. The town of Jackpot isn't anything to speak of; it's small with only a few casino/ hotels, general store and a couple of gas stations. But the atmosphere during race week is somewhat magical in Jackpot. The host and sponsor for this race as in years past was the Horshu Hotel & Casino. They have a nice outside pool for ev-ery one's use that also serves as the post race awards and get to-gether spot. It sure is a nice break from the typical blister-ing July heat. Other sponsors included: 1) Butch's Speed Shop, 2) Colorado Commercial Services, 3) 4 Wheelers 4x4 Center, and 4) Elliott Lafreniere (Trick Racing Fuel). BORE wishes to thank all spon-sors for their support. The nor-mal course crew began descend-ing on Jackpot the Wednesday prior to the race to tackle the chores of marking the course, setting up vehicle technical in-spection and racer registration. This year BORE chose to re-verse the direction of the course. In doing so a few of the traditional standards such as the "Wash" and the "Big Hill" were eliminated. The course however still maintained the infamous "Easy Street" which is about a mile and a half of rocky, rutted out "Pure Hell" that is known to destroy ve-hicles and kidneys. The course this year was a 35 mile loop that skirted the Jackpot golf course before heading out to the mountain desert then cir-cling around Mule Creek Can-yon, rising to and through a narrow tree lined peak, de-scending down to Rabbit Springs and finally negotiating Easy Street to get back to the start/finish. All in all while there are some definite techni-cal areas, there is plenty of all-out, full-throttle racing to be had to blow the silt out of the cockpit and speaking of silt there was plenty to be had for all. As was at the BORE Wendover race in May, silt was the word or curse word of the day! This apparently didn't slow anyone down because the average lap time was right around and hour to complete. Before any race can happen, there are many volunteers in the back ensuring everything is ready before, during, and after the race such as Registration: Peggy Bowers and Sharon Maness; Technical Inspection: Greg Kimoto, Glen Cain, and Brian Dick; Course Set up & Tear Down: Brian Dick, Greg Kimoto, Glen Cain; Check Points: The Bothers Hamilton and Mike Sullivan; Start/Fin-ish: The Palmers. BORE cannot say thank you enough for your efforts in supporting BORE and all racers who participate. This was echoed many times at the awards by all racers and BORE. Our volunteers are the Best! Oh did I mention the weather? Other than a little windy on Friday, it was a beau-tiful racing weekend. OK, I get it! You want to read about the racing, so here it is!!! We had 26 total vehicles en-ter this race, remember BORE is a small grass roots racing or-ganization so you won't see big numbers here but what you will see and experience if you race with BORE is the fun and ex-citement that any of the big boys have. The breakdown was: Monte Tibbitts gave it his all, he took the gold medal in the Class 8 contest and he was the second overall finisher as well. 1) Class 1 - 3 Buggies (2 -Class l's & 1 off-road speed crawler), 2) Class 10 - 4 bug-gies (3 -lO's & 1 -1600), 3) 9 -Class 8 Trucks (8 -trucks & 1 -jeep), 4) 5 -Class 7 trucks, 5) 4 -Class 9 buggies, and 6) 1 -Sportsman buggy. First off the line for the 4th of July event was the Class l's. Tom Wood took the honors of taking the initial green flag and flying off the line he went run-ning. Tom set the overall fast-est of the race on lap 1 with a time of only 39:56 and firmly in first place by almost 4 & ½ minutes. Lap 2 saw much of the same with the exception of Tom increasing his lead to 7 minutes. Tom wasn't done yet though and by mid-way through the race Tom had a full 20 minute lead and showing no signs of slowing down. As with good things, sometimes they come to an end and it did. Tom started having unknown mechanical problems and by the end of lap 4 had fallen a full 30 minutes back into second. Much of the same was to be the in store for Tom for the rest of the day and when Tom took the checkered flag he was a full 32 minutes back, but still captured 2nd place honors for Class 1. Next off the line was the 173 piloted by John Uibel. John not letting Tom Wood in front of him stretch to far ended lap 1 only 4 & ½ minutes back in 2nd place. John kept his foot down but had dropped to 7 minutes behind the front runner. By lap 3 however, the tables had turned on the front runner and now John was in the lead by 20 minutes and wasn't about to let anyone come near. By lap 4 John increased his lead to 32 minutes and again increased his lead to 38 minutes by lap 5 end. At the end of lap 6, John took the checkered flag capturing the 1" Place position with a Class 1 lead of over 31 minutes. The closest competitor was the Class 8 truck driven by Monte Tibbitts so John also captured overall fastest top honors for this day. Great racing Tom! Next off the Ii ne was the last Class 1 entry of Dallas Lutrell piloting his freshly built "High Speed Rock Crawler", quite frankly I don't know what that is but it looked real mean. Un-fortunately Dallas only made it 20 miles on lap 1 before losing a rear-end ending his day. This was his first run and a shake-down test and as everyone knows sometimes it takes several races before dialing a vehicle in. Hats off to the Lutrell Team! The top finishers were: 1) John Uibel, 2) Tom Wood, 3) Dallas Lutrell. Next to pit their metal and nerves on the course was the Class l0's and starting in the Class 10 pole position was the 1081 of Schmueser Racing with Larry Schmueser at the con-trols. Larry sprinted off the line like a fox with a pack of dogs on his heal. By the end of lap 1 Larry had slipped into the znd position by a mere 40 seconds. By the end of lap 2 however Larry had fallen to en-gine high temp. issues and would never see another lap. Better luck next time Larry. Next off the line was Layne Brown but only made it 17 miles on the first lap before some type of unknown me-chanical problem put in the pits for the rest of the day. The 3'd buggy to put the Jackpot course to the test was Jack Howard. Jack wasn't taking any guff from the demanding course and quickly took his Class 10 to the lead ending lap 1 40 seconds in first. By the end of lap 2, Jack was firmly in 1" place by 9 minutes and contin-ued to stretch his lead to 19 minutes by the end of lap 3. Jack was on his way to a near perfect race and continued to increase his lead for both the 4th and 5th laps to just over 42 Tom Wood led Class 1 for the first three laps but laps four and Bill Clarey runs a 1600 car, he ran with the Class 10 guys this Mike Sims had a pretty good race, he took home the silver medal in the Class 8 contest, he's seen here headin' for home. five did him in, he finished second in the contest. race and took home the silver medal for his effons.

I' It was a nice win in Class 10 for Jack Howard, he had over 40 minutes in hand when he came in to take the checkered flag. minutes. Jack, not ever letting down his racing guard took the final lap checkered flag with a first place victory time margin of just over 47 minutes. Now that racing for all he and his buggy was worth. WOW what a run! The last Class 10 off the line was actually a ½-1600 pi-loted by Bill Clarey. Bill's 1600 was the only buggy in his class to show up at Jackpot so he opted to run with the Class lO's. Bill knowing full well that he was out powered but run-ning hard and with a little luck had the chance of taking some prize money. Bill pulled out and gave his 1600 all it could take and his buggy responded greatly. By the close of lap 1 Bill was in 3,d and by the end of lap 2 had 2nd place under his belt. Bill continued to tick off the laps and took the checkered flag to be rewarded with the Silver Metal in Class 10. Out powered and much slower, Bill pulled off a great race and all you can say is "You're the Man"! The top finishers were: 1) Jack Howard, 2) Bill Clarey, 3) Larry Schmueser. The third class off the line was Heavy Metal Trucks, Class 8. There were 9 vehicles in class 8 trucks and 1 jeep. Normally · the Jackpot desert course has a way of taking its' toll with less than a 50% survival rate. This race however had only 1 truck fail to capture the checkered flag an awesome feat. The first to catch the drop of the green flag was the Jeep piloted by Gordon Scott. Gordon drove steady and fierce and ended lap 1 in 6th place. Gordon would slip one more position by the end of lap 2 but set his eye on HO HAVE SEEN TH S~ORE£LASS·CHA11PI 1 BilJy Gasper : Dusty Times Kenny McKnight had some competition in Class 7 when they started but they all fell by the wayside, giving Kenny's Ford an easy win. the lead pack. Within 2 laps, Gordon was heading toward the front and now had his grip on 3'd place. Lap 5 had Gor-don maintaining the 3,d posi-tion by over an hour and sites on taking the Bronze. By race end, Gordon took the check-ered flag and a solid Class 8, 3,d place finish. James Vigil was next off the line in his newly built Class 8. This was the first race for James as driver/ owner and was ready to test his driv-ing and maintenance abilities. Just finishing the race would be a feat and finish he did. James ran steady and true for laps 1 through 3 and was in 8'h place for all 3 laps. Obviously be-coming more confident in his abilities, James pushed forward and by the end of lap 4 was now in 61h place. James continued laying down rubber and again November 2008 was rewarded by increasing his place to 5'h position. Appar-ently James still had something left and pushed it even further and slipped into 4th position by the end of the race by a mere 3 ½ minutes. James' day was a complete success by not only surviving his 1st race and actu-ally getting the checkered flag, because of the number of class competitors he received a 4'h place plaque to put on the wall of fame. The next to go was the veteran team SIMCO Racing, piloted by Mike Sims. Mike has a long standing reputation of being in the front and today wouldn't be any different. Mike was barely hanging on to 2nd place at the end of lap 1 and as a matter of racing there was less than 2 Yz minutes between 1st and 7th place, that is a lot of metal in a short space. By the en o ap 1 e a ta en SIMCO Racing to the lead po-sition by 3 minutes and kept it going. Lap 3 would prove a great lap for SIMCO by still holding onto the pole position by a sliver 24 seconds. Mike continued racing hard but slipped his gripped on the lead position a n d n o w h e ld 2nd• Mike would run for all his worth and was rewarded at the checkered flag with an overall 2nd place in C lass 8. The 4th Class 8 truck off the line was Glen Wise. Glen started off strong and ended lap 1 in the middle of the pack, 5'h place. Remember the only difference between 1" and 7 'h was only 2 ½ minutes so the middle of the pack is full of dust and silt. Glen was able to better his position by the end of lap 2 to 4'h place however, that was short lived dropping to 9th by the end of lap 3. Glen started working his way back toward the front and climbed to 8th place at the end of lap 4. Again not settling for less than his best, Glen im-proved by another position and now was in 7th• During the fi-nal lap and on his way to cap-ture the checkered flag, Glen again improved his final posi-tion of 61h place. Richard Cretsinger took the green flag and poured the coals on and by 1st lap white flag had his grip on 4th place. Richard kept the fuel petal to the floor and fight-ing the massive dust and silt bettered his position to 3'd place by the end of lap 2. Lap Continued next page Page 43

Dean Blackly wasn't able to complete the race but he went further than anyone else in Class 9 and was awarded the class win. Class fastest lap of 47:38 and now sat in the 1" place position by almost 2 minutes. Monte had a strangled hold on 1" place and wasn't about to re-lease it. By the end of the race and capturing the checkered flag, Monte was firmly in 1" place by over 10 minutes and captured the Class 8 champion. Ken Leavitt, piloting the 806 was next to hit it running. Ken pressed for all he had and was at the end of the 2 minute freight train battling from l " to 7,h place at the end of the l " lap. Ken improved his position to 6th ending lap 2 and again improved to 4,h place by the end of the 3rd place. Some dif-ficulty must have bit Ken dur-ing lap 4 because he slipped to the 9,h position. During lap 5 and the final, Ken continued to fight back and improved his po-sition to the overall Class 8, 7,h place. Jim Price was the last Class 8 to take to the course and placed his truck into the 1" place position at the end of lap 1 by only 7 seconds. Jim did slip to second by the end of lap 2 but it must be said that the difference between 1" and 6th place is less than 5 minutes. Jim did begin a backward slide however and by the end of lap 3 was in 61h place. Something must have gone his way as he charged back to the 4,h posi-tion. Unfortunately, Ken would be sidelined during lap 5 for a broken ring and pinion. The top finishers were: 1) Monte Tibbitts, 2) Mike Sims, 3) Gor-don Scott, 4) James Vigil. The Class 7 Trucks were next to put their skills to the test. There were five trucks for this days' race and each one of them had their sights on cap-turing the top horrors. This was not to be though, as only 1 out of the 5 vehicles would ac-tually see the drop of the check-ered flag. Jackpot would take its' toll on the Class 7 drive lines as each attempted to com-plete the race. First off the line was Brady Sessions in the 702. Brady was running a steady race in the back of the pack in 5,h place. Laps 2 and 3 were pretty much the same with what ap-peared to be a strategy of "Steady As She Goes" and com-plete the race. This was not to be though; sometime during the 4,h lap Brady dropped out for unknown mechanical problems and was sidelined for the rest of the day. Jason Hutter, long time BORE racer was next to pit his metal against the formi-dable course. Jason quickly set a fast pace for all to see, chal-lenging all to better him and by the end of lap 2 was only 58 seconds behind in the #2 posi-tion. Jason must have had the gremlins fighting his truck be-cause he dropped a couple spots during laps 2 and 3 and by the end of lap 3 was in 4th place just over 1 hour behind 3'J position. Fire Guys Racing must have figured out the grem-lin and by lap 4 end, Jason was back to 2nd place and running strong. Lap 5 saw much of the same for Jason as he kept pour-ing it o n and holding a solid 3 had Richard holding firmly onto the 3'J place position but slipped to 5,h by the end of lap 4. Lap 5 would see Richard slipped to 7th spot but was unable to finish it off during the 61h and final lap. Something must have mechanically gone wrong because when the check-ered flag dropped for Richard he had slipped to the 81h over-all spot in Class 8. Gary Hull was the 61h Class 8 truck to for-ward into the dust, rock, and silt to prove he could do it. Gary plowed into the desert and by the end of lap 1 held the 9,h position. Gary was still plowing through the dust and silt but was unable to improve his position. This was not to last long for Gary kept pushing hard and gained 2 positions and was in the 7th spot by the end of the 3'd lap. Gary was able to hold onto the 7th spot end-ing lap 4. Always looking into the distance, Gary forged on and was reward by capturing the 4th place position by the end of the 5th lap. The 6th and final lap would not go well for Gary however, he slipped to the 81h position and there is where he caught the checkered flag. The next to conquer the Jackpot course was Monte Tibbitts. Monte has come to dominate the Class 8 trucks and he lit out as he always does, pedal full to floor and pushing for more. Monte had a slim grip on 3rd place by the end of the 1" lap. Uncharacteristic for Monte, he slipped back to the 5th position during lap 2. Well that was all he needed and by the end of lap 3 had taken his truck to the number 2 spot.

Kenny McKnight was the 3'J Class 7 to take too the course and take it he did! Kenny has steadily risen to the top of the Class 7 Trucks and last year Kenny and his Team were rewarded with BORE Champio n h onors. Kenny started the 2008 BORE season hot with a win at the May Red Garter race and today was striving for a repeat win. The McKnight Motorsports Racing team was not disappointed in Kenny's performance and by the end of the Jackpot 225 Kenny rook the checkered flag and Class 7 top honors. The big battle in class 7 was forged in lap 1. By the end of lap 1 only 5 minutes separated the first 5 positions, with Kenny holding on to 3'J. Lap 2 brought much of the same battle between the top 5 trucks, however, Kenny pulled his Red Garter sponsored truck to 1" . place position with a lead of almost 3 minutes over 2nd place Scott Smith. At lap 3s end though the battle between McKnight and Smith saw Smith slipping into first over Kenny by mere 14 seconds. Lap 4 proved to be killer for the ma-jority of the Class 7 folks; Kenny had stretched his lead to over an hour and a half while 3 of the 5 Class 7 trucks were sidelined for drive line prob-lems.

The third and final desert series race for Vorra's 2008 season is in the book and what a great race it was. After hav-ing some bad luck at the previ-ous two desert races Sam Berri was back on top in his Class 10 taking the top overall spot. I have been racing in Yerington for 20-some years and thought I had raced on ev-ery road out there. Wes and the BLM proved me wrong and introduced us to a couple of new sections and about 30 miles of new course - a feat that is unheard of these days. Taking off the start and head-ing up Blue Stone Canyon and running in the counter clock-wise direction, the course im-mediately found new road at the top of the wash. It kept climbing uphill until we were on the highest peak overlook-ing both Smith and Mason Valley. Then it plunged into a new wash with a new Check-point 1 location. It didn't stop there. After a mile or two of old course we were back on new stuff heading into Check-point 2. From there we went over the familiar cattle guard jump, then backwards onto the recent Vegas to Reno course, * Sponsorship Opportunities * finally heading north to Check-point 3. The course then turned south down some really fast gas line roads, then up a five mile "wash from hell" and then into Checkpoint 4 and finally onto Checkpoint 5. Af-ter Checkpoint 5 -past the dollar sign it was a mile or so of new course bypassing the stadium jump and heading over the hill and back to the start/finish . The course was a total of 63 miles -the Pro classes would run five laps, Semi-Pro four laps, quads two and bantam quad one lap.

Saturday in-cludes race registration and tech inspection, the parade of cars up and down Main Street, then the drivers' meeting. Un-like the Memorial Day weekend race that was all but rained out, this weekend started with a hot Friday. But the weather-man promised strong winds and much cooler temperatures by race day. When have we known a weatherman to be right? Well, this time they were dead on as we were greeted Sunday with strong winds that blew awnings and ez-ups right out of the desert. And as we racers know, strong winds make for great race conditions. Sunday morning before the sun came up and while it was just a bit dark, the quads were off the line with Pro Quad #252 Mason Cole leading the way. Mason made both laps in 2:54: 15 with a 43:39 mph av-erage for the Pro class win. Second in Pro class went to # 104 Brad Falin who com-pleted just one lap before run-ning out of time. Next off the line were the amateur quads. Taking the early lead and class win was #31 Mike Jasmann with a time of 3:00:58 with a 41:78 mph average. Second in amateur went to #55 Kenny Pomeroy and third to #36 James West, who each com-pleted one lap. In the Bantam class (12-15 year olds) #4 Ja-son Pomeroy beat out #7 Grant Mitchell by 13:23 for the class win. Third finisher in class went to #3 Casey Thiering. Once the course was clear it was time for the cars and trucks to do battle. At the last race Jim Paddock # 169 missed the drivers' meeting and it cost him the pole starting spot. Well not this time, as he was first off the line. Unfortu-nately, he wouldn't make it far and would drop out of the race early. Paddock did make it further than Dave Morton # 124 in the Rescue Racing four seater. Morton dropped the clutch off the flag and rolled about ten more feet Dave Schneider showed the other nine vehicles in Class 7 how to do it, Dave hustled around the course and took the gold medal in Class 7.

Box 1007 Atwood, California 92811 BREASTCANCERAWARNESS MONfH SrChupacabra in this Interna-tionally distributed issue of "The Dusty Times" calls for all Baja Kin-folk (relatives) to transport into BAJA for the annual Halloween get together of all and anyone that comes to BAJA to prepare the BAJA 1000 race course to cause Grie_f, Frustration, Dislike Condi-tions, Electric Storms, Sewage River Beds, Lost Hopes and Havoc to all racers insane enough to enter and race the 2008 BAJA 1000 in Mexico. After SrChupacabra and his clan set up the BAJA course with the goal of all that enter to lose your mind, we will use our Hallow-een tactics which have evolved from simple dirt humps to elaborate il-lusions to make this race the worst ever for all entrants. We also recommend you have a BAJA TESTED AND APPROVED Video Recording System by on your vehicle, so when you crash and burn, you can watch what BAJA has done to your wasted race ve-hicle while you recover from the crash. You will at least have action shots of the race you tried to fin-ish. We recommend two www.CHASECAM .. com camera systems for fron·t and rear footage. Beware of our Chupacabra Ways and always share crash footage with others. · Dusty Times Don't even expect to finish this years race as we will put so many boobie traps in your path you will quit after just 45 miles into the race. This Interna'tional race that not even the world militaries will run is sooooooooooo difficult that not even the media will venture into this vulture lined race . .Anyone that has the Denny's Gland Slam courage to enter will be scared out of there. wits after the SrChupacabra fam-ily of evil creatures arrives to turn the BAJA into a Race Course only maybe 50% of you will finish. The Swiss Guard that keeps the Holy Vatican safe won' t even at-tempt to challenge this BAJA 1000 course. As we have told you racers over and over again. The Baja For-gives NO ONE. Not even the Swiss Guard could finish this race and they have God Looking down on them to keep them safe. And a little bit of information you thought you knew, BAJA is exempt from any properly working safety .devices in the world. Anyone that brings safety devices to this race better have a chase truck running very close. Any senses by the Chupacabra Clan that detects a safety device will be disabled by the hand o f Chupacabra and you will be left in the middle ofBAJA NO WHERE until the vultures have their -way with your dead carcass. Go ahead and give it a try, bring whatever you may think is a Safety device to calm your nerves. The pain is about to begin HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA Foolish Racers. Sat Phones in the Middle of the course, HA HA HA HA HA HA for you, the batteries will be DRAINED by Chupacabra, Oil Pressure lights come on when the oil pressure is low???? The Bulbs will break and you will never know you have low oil pressure until the mo-tor Locks up, HA HA. HA HA. GPS units tell you to go in all dif; ferent directions. GPS is a video game that is · controlled by Chupacabra. You better be able to read the signs of the Score-Interna-tional labeled course, because Chupacabra's also messes with this marking system.

Don't expect anyone in BAJA to help you since every Chupacabra wants you to FAIL and go home CRYING to your Mommy and Daddy. But the Rac-ers that help the Baja People will be given special treatment. You may get to live this one BAJA 1000 out to finish. Don't forget to make your Will out before entering this•evil area of the globe. HA HA HA HA HAHAHAHA. Other issues at hand are that if you try to pass safely, you will flip over and your vehicle will burst into flames. HA HA HA HA HA HA . Think your fire extinguisher will work on a truck fire. Not out here in BAJA, Chupacabra has many ways to stop that device from safely working. Ever wonder why the class Cars and Trucks have many Rows of Lights? Chupacabra with make them go out one by one until you have to hold that flashlight to see the evil, frustrating course you are trying to follow for the Win. But You won't finish. Play it SAFE and STAY HOME. When you go through our BAJA Rivers fille d with wet Sewage, the spark plug wires will ground out and you will have a motor that cranks over un-til the battery is dead. Yes, My over zealous and arrogant friends, we November 2008 Chupacabra's will make You lost in Action, never to be found. And Halloween brings out the best of our Evil ways to stop you in your (our) tracks. Even seasoned chase truck per-sonnel respect the Chupacabra and help the locaJ Baja Peoples. If not, the fuel they bring to the race may just float away or be tainted with water. Water in your fuel does not get you to the finish line. Many hardships will be upon the Baja 1000 racers this year as Chupacabra feels that his Gold Mines have been disturbed in the past years by racers that try to stop and get Chupacabra's GOLD to help pay for their race costs. Any-one taking Gold from the Chupacabra will pay dearly for this act. It is the Gold of BAJA and is for the childten's future. If you see a vehicle broken down in ·the middle of no where and aban-doned, look for traces of Gold and fresh blood. As the Chupacabra has taken back what is rightfully theirs. What happens in BAJA, Stays in BAJA. Don't mess with BAJA Pilgrims!! And Insurance in BAJA may help you if Chupacabra allows it to be so. Witches are now in BAJA and they get really mean if you racers mess with the fence lines. Many hours of labor go into the fences tha t keep cattle and goats in pas-ture. Mess with those fences and you will pay with your life as the witches will rip out you lungs .to be made into other forms and uses we can not discuss. October is the month when all evil enters BAJA to pre-pare the November BAJA 1000 race course, this is not the month you want to pre-run, But if you are seen by a witch, you will be turned into SILT! Yes a witch can turn YOU into Si,LT. Go ahead and try me!! And, the vehicles that are stuck in the silt will dissolve within six hours. So say good by to your efforts to finish the BAJA 1000 for 2008. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!! This articlt; is making it as clear as day, a_nd dark as night that this could be a warning to stay home and not enter this evil, filthy, wicked, disgusting, apocalyptic, RIP, scummy, dreadful, morbid, dusty, scary, smelly race. Just stay home and hide within the stucco walls of your home or better yet join the Army and get an M-16 to see if that keeps you safe. But as for safe races in BAJA, HA HA HA it ain't going to happen. Plan on getting run over by a few trophy trucks, just cause. You are in Chupacabra's territory and that means you racers will kneel before us and we may keep you alive to·tell the others not to come here. We don't want anyone here that thinks they can20finish the BAJA 1000. Go Away!!! Who else shows up during the October month of Halloween??? You just had to ask ...... Goblins that range from 2feet-7feet tall. Some of the Ugliest Goblins show up to make sure the pebbles that get pelted at you while racers pass you are so sharp they will cut you and your vehicle in half or cause major damage. We don't want you to finish!!! Get our Drift Pilgrim racers? A goblin has the worst breath you could ever encounter and can be notices 100 feet away. Better be up wind of a Goblin. Zombies are what you really need to look out for while racing in the BAJA 1000, Even BAJAPITS and LOCOS MOCOS are con-stantly looking for Zombies who just walk around all over with no focus of direction. Many, many rac-ers have ran over the Zombies that come to BAJA for the races. And, are run over. Yet the Same Zom-bies return race after race because you can't kill them.

"Wicked Things" are also part of the race. "Wicked Things" are fast moving little fuzzy tainted ani-mals that will trick you into driving into areas that are not on the course. "Wicked Things" smell like expensive cigars mixed with rwo stroke oil. They are very fast, have lured drivers over cliffs, can't be trusted and can hypnotize you into stopping to get your Berings for rwo to three hours of lost race time. "Wicked Things" also like to take RO LEX watches from your wrist to gleam at when that stop to eat fresh meat that was killed during the race. The only way to scare off a "Wicked Thing" is to flash your HID lights at them and play Gospel Music. Just · another form of evil that is what the BAJA 1000 is all about. We at BAJAPITS have giant HID lights in our pits ran off 30KW Diesel Gen-erators to create enough light and Gospel Music to keep the "Wicked Things" away from harming our pit crews. This is a safe zone for riders who may need to rest while racing the BAJAlO00. "Wicked Things" are not very nice. The Gospel Mu-sic should be in a fast tempo.

"Smokey Bear is inappropri-ately using a mountain biker as a surrogate to tell members of the motorized trail community that the best way for them to prevent wildfires is to just stay home.

It C-series over 10,000 individual members Court recently ruled that the consensus forest health and fire hazard reduction plan developed by the Herger-Feinstein Quincy Library Group (HFQLG) was a sound plan and rejected the law-suit filed by environmental groups intended to block the plan. This group was formed in the early 90's by a county supervisor, a timber forester, and an environmental at-torney to try to develop a plan that would protect the environment, promote rural community stabil-ity, and reduce fire danger for lo-cal communities in the northern Sierra's. The plan they came up with was then adopted by local Re-publican Congressman Wally Hergei and Senator Diane Feinstein. The plan included thin-ning overstocked National Forests to improve forest health as well as reducing the potential· for cata-strophic fires adjacent to rural communities. Even though the HFQLG plan was endorsed by environmental-ists· that participated in develop-ing the plan, major national envi-ronmental groups challenged the plan in the federal court system and have blocked projec~s to re-duce fire danger, protect the Cali-fornia Spotted Owl, and improve forest health. The Quincy Library Group intervened in the lawsuit on behalf of the Forest Service, along with several other groups. HFQLG member Linda Blum re-sponded "After the recent fires, the spotted owls and old growth trees will always be near to our hearts, because now little pieces of them are lodged in our lungs. Losing habitat to wildfires is very dangerous to all species. It's just wrong because it could have been prevented." Bill Dart, ORBA's Director of Land Use, was heavily involved in the Sierra Nevada Conservation Framework in the mid 90's that included the HFGLG plan as an element. Dart stated, "The Forest Service was needlessly delayed from moving forward to protect old growth forests arid all of the species that live there: as well as local communities. Short sighted environmental groups were willing to sacrifice habitat, plants, ani-mals, and fish that live there, en-dangering lives and property while denying residents the· chance for good jobs that would have pro-Dusty Times tected all of these things. The Forest Servke can now get back to doing the job they are chartered to do, managing National Forests based upon sound science instead of misguided emotions." Corporate Office 1701 Westwind Dr. #216 Bakersfield, CA 93301 Corporate Office 661.323.1464 National Trail Recreation Group Petitions Ad Council To Pu// Inflammatory Alv Fire Prevention Campaign POCATELLO, ID Quly 21)-A national trail recreation group is strongly urging the Smokey Bear program to revise its current A TV fire iirevention campaign. On be-half of outraged OHV enthusiasts, the BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) contacted the Ad Council last week strongly urging them to with-draw the inaccurate and inflam-matory A TY-oriented public service advertisements. BRC reviewed the ad material posted at www.smokeybear.comand found the PSA was sending the wrong message to riders operating their A TV s in a legal manner with functioning USDA Forest Ser-vice approved spark arrestors. The ad implied that the proper way for motorized recreationists to prevent wildfires is for them to load up their vehicles and go home. Smokey Bear has historically caution~d the public against care-less acts, such as tossing a lighted cigarette out of a moving automo-bile or not properly extinguishing a campfire. BRC feels this ad · should be focused on educating the public about using approved spark arrestors on their OHYs and confining their use to legal roads, trails, and areas. · Don Amador, BRC spokesper-son on the use of sound compli-ant mufflers and spark arrestors, states, "As an advocate for the use oflegal exhaust systems on public and-private lands, I found the current Smokey Bear A TV wildfire PSA to be offensive, unethical, and un-professional.
