What do you call a person who has been actively involved with the sport of off road 1'acing for almost thirty years? Crazy, ignorant, a glutton for punishment, a masochist, any of the above? Well, I guess you would have to say a bit of all of them, but that's what makes Jean Calvin-unique in this sport. She was sort of conned into the sport in 1969 and it certainly took hold of her. It became her greatest passion in life, the participation, the infonnation she is able to disseminate to the people, the love of racing, the love of driving, the people involved in the sport, but mostly it is the compel-ling urge to succeed, to overcome the obstacles that arise in front of her and overcome them she does. Never known as a quitter, Jean attacked the sport of off road racing with vigor, finding a great outlet for her competitive spirit, racing not only against some other driver, but against the elements themselves. There were days ( and long nights) when the temperature was in three digits, when the silt was so thick you could never even see the hood of the car, when the snow was so deep you couldn't find the race course, when your crew stood out there like frozen fools, listen-ing for "Their" engine, and then watching their driver plow on by, and Jean was one of those drivers, either freezing or sweating or choking or being blinded in the dust and in spite of it all, having the best time in the world because you were racing, off road racing, and there was still one lap to go, or 300 miles to go, it didn't mat-ter, you were where you belonged and you were putting forth your best effort, that too was Jean at all times. Now mind you, Jean wasn't the only driver out there having all that fun, she was one of maybe 450 to 500 active drivers in those days, but she was one of the few women racing the desert and she did her best to beat everybody else out there. Jean raced sports cars with the SCCA for many years before entering the off road world. She had an Austin-Healy Sprite, which was near and dear to her heart and even though it was known as a miserable ill-handling car, she raced it for years, competing against l nd efus. he "lIT ' R " . most y men a r mg to enter t vv omen s aces , racing instead against the good ole boys, who detested her when she beat them to the checkered flag. Jean had her share of accidents and flips, including one five time end over end at Santa Barbara; it destroyed the car ( except for the roll bar) and Jean ended up with a broken nose and a severely wrenched shoulder. However, as soon as possible an-other Sprite was built and she was at it again. Jean entered the off road world when she did an article on Les Choate, owner of Les' s Auto Salvage. Les was involved in the fledg-ling sport of off road racing and offered Jean and her husband a ride in a "Burro" (state of the art for the time) in the upcoming Baja 500 and except for losing a steering box it was a very success-ful race. Jean kept running with Les' s Auto Salvage Team, sharing the driving with Les and his son Eddie in many races over the next few years, until the "F" bug bit, in this case "F" stands for Funco and that was the beginning of part two for Jean in off road racing. Jean made a deal with Gil George at Funco and a brand new single seater was born, a car that was raced to death but came through the flips and the crashes without too much long tenn dam-age. Jean raced the little Funco, mostly in Class 9, then in 1600 and for the most part, enjoyed every minute of it. Lots of help came to her through Dick McCool and Jerry Lawless who always made sure the car was up to par and both these guys shared the driving chores with Jean on numerous occasions. We are unable to count the times Jean has taken the green flag in off road, but racing full time for too many years to mention with SCORE, SNORE, WRA, ARVRA, and many many other sane-. tioning bodies, she has had plenty of seat time in the desert. Jean had worked for Peterson Publishing back in the sports car days, then put out SCORE News for Sal Fish for some time but in, December, 1983 the first issue of Dusty Times hit the presses and the rest is history. Jean knew that the sport of off road racing needed an unbiased journal of the happenings in the desert racing commu-nity and Dusty Times was the answer. With help from her hus-band, Brad Goodrow; Don Goodrow and Jerry Lawless, Dusty Times was born and became another consuming passion in Jean's life. Jean continued racing and publishing Dusty Times with Judy Smith covering some events, and it wasn't too long before Jean and Dusty Times were becoming the voice of off road racing. Dusty Times was, soon covering rallying in Europe and Africa through Martin Holmes and the Australian races were covered by Darryl Smith and Mick Myers. Jean was badly injured in a Baja 500 race some years ago, her racing activities were brought to a sudden stop for a time, but her determination soon had her back covering the races and reporting on the racers she loved so well. Jean left this earth of ours on March 31, 1997. She enjoyed ev-ery minute she spent racing, covering the races and, above all, pub-lishing Dusty ' Times. Jean was blessed with the willpower, the guts and the determination to never give up, she worked the races and the paper in spite of the pain she lived with most days and was always amply rewarded when some racer thanked her for putting their picture in the paper. Jean was inducted into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2004, a fitting tribute to a woman who lived and loved off road racing for more than 30 years. Jean really was a champion!

The Grabber competition tire will debut on the ProTruck class at the Baja 500. "We are very excited to have our new Grabber tires chosen to equip all ProTruck race vehicles this year," said Travis Roffler, director of marketing, CTNA. "Ivan is one of the most accomplished drivers in off-road racing, and it is gratifying that he has placed his trust in these tires in their inaugural season." Designed with a tough, three-ply Duragen TM-reinforced body construction to stand up to the rigors of off-road conditions, the Grabber also features a newly-developed competition-specific tread compound. General Tire offers two distinct tread designs for different types of competitive conditions. In addition, the Grabber name and General Tire logo are prominently featured on the sidewall in red and white letters. The Grabber competition tires are designed in size 37x 12.S0R17 for class 1, 7S, 7 unlimited, 8 and trophy truck. "I'm very impressed with the quality and durability of the General Grabber," Stewart said. "These drivers demand a tire that can stand up to no matter what the desert throws at it, and we've found that in the Grabber." Stewart has been a consistent winner since he burst onto the oft~road scene in 197 3 with the Ensenada 300. Since then, he's chalked up 84 career victories and 10 driver's championships. The wins include 17 Baja SO0s, eight Mint 400s, four Parker 400s, three Baja 1000s and four SCORE World Championships. "These tires are proving to be ultimate contenders in the desert. They can withstand the extreme terrains encountered in desert racing," Roffler added. "We are confident that these tires will make the off-road racing community sit up and take notice."

~[DJ=~ PARKER 425 Huffman And Whelchel Win At Parker BY ]UDY SMITH PHOTOS: TRACKS/DE PHOTO Chuck Hovey took the Class 1 honors at BITD Parker, he t,ad 13 minutes in hand when he took the checkers in his Jimco. tators. Two days before the race there'd been a huge rainstorm, which had dumped about two inches of rain on the area. As a consequence, dust wasn't a big issue here as it sometimes is. But the course has been used many, many times, and it's developed some serious "whoops". Many of the fin-ishing racers remarked about "holes, three and four feet deep." They said a small car would be completely swal-lowed up in some of them. One racer compared it to the over-used area around San Felipe. A great day, Chet Huffman and Jerry Whelchel beat out 25 other Trick Trucks to take the class win and the overall win as well in their Geiser. The faster cars each ran three laps, and Classes 3100, 4100, 5100, 7200, 7300, 1700, 3700 and 1800 all did only two laps. At the end of his final lap, each racer was supposed to know that at Mile 133 he should tum right and drop down along the river to the finish line. It's been that kind of a finish at Parker for years, but every year there are racers who don't re-member if they've done three laps or not, and either forget to make that crucial right jog, or make it a lap too early. Parker, AZ: The Best In The Desert season opener went to Chet Huffman and Jerry Whelchel, in a new Geiser truck. They had a near-perfect run. This year 294 starters came to try their luck at the Parker event, a fa-vorite with racers since the early '70s. Although it now is run only in Ari-zona, and doesn't cross into Califor-nia at all, it still tugs at the heart strings of old racers, and brings many of them to the area as spectators, and some come to race. A lot of old racers still in Parker and many have homes or trailers there that bring them to the area over and over during the year. One of those who lived there, and loved to race, was Manny Esquerra. He was detennined to race in this event, and to his delight was invited to drive with Tracy Rubio in his Trick Truck. Manny started the race in the morn-ing, and was running well when a heart attack brought am end to his life and his race. Manny had been racing for upwards of 30 years, and was an icon to off-roaders. He was a major tal-ent, a bit of history, and a very nice guy. 1l1e off-road community will miss him. Jason Voss drove his Ford Protruck to a nice win at Parker, he's seen here with the power on and headin' for the finish. It was a good day for Drew Belk and clan, they took the Class 5 win with ease, two hors in hand, seen here at full throttle. Pages The layout of the course was enough like last year's, and the year before, to make little difference. It was about 137 miles long, and at the west end there was a huge "short course", or "Python", section com-posed of tight turns, man-made jumps, some moguls and some very deep sand. It was just less than nine miles in length. It gave the spectators a chance to see the cars in action close up, and every now and then, a chance to set one back on its wheels. The main pits were stretched out along the perimeter of the "Python" area, and this was a favorite area for spec-The Best In 1l1e Desert has begun using transponders to record finish times at their events, and so far they've perfom1ed with few problems. As always, some race teams failed to The LeDuc clan had it all their way in the Class 8 competition, they had 50 minutes in hand at the flag, seen here in their goori lookin' Ford. Rod Smith took a nice win in the Class 10 Light conflict, he had four minutes in hand when the checkers flew. April 2008 pay attention to the instructions, and mounted their transponders in posi-tions that didn't allow them to "read" the signal at the finish line. But for the most part the system works well, and will record times for cars moving up to 100 miles per hour, a speed at which human eyesight often fails to be able to read numbers on the sides of cars. So far the transponders are being used only at the finish Line. For this event, the Best In The Desert handled the Time Trials a bit differently. Classes 1500 and the Trick Trucks are the only ones invited to the Trials, and instead of just start-ing the fastest 20 at the front of the pack, as has been done in the past, this time the BITD started those who entered the Time Trials in the order in which they finished. As it turned out, more than 70 Class 1500 and Trick Trucks went for it. When it was done, Todd Wyllie had the fast time in his Chevrolet Trick Truck, and had earned the number one start posi-tion for the race. Behind him it was Garron Cadiente, John Herder in a 1500 car, then Jerry Whelchel in Chet Huffman's new truck, Sam Berri in another 1500 car, Cameron Steele, Kyle Taylor, Steve Strobel, Rick D. Johnson and Brad Etter. They made up the first ten. The first 20 went off the start line on race day at 45 second intervals, and the rest of them were started 30 seconds apart. When they got back to the 1100 cars (SCORE lites) and those that came after them, they closed it up to every 15 seconds. The BITD uses the main street through Parker as a start and staging area, and has a strict time table to adhere to. As eigh-teen wheelers are detoured through the neighboring residential area, Casey Folks is adamant that the start runs as planned, because Parker offi-cials really want the street back and functioning normally right on time. This year there were 294 starters, so it was a bit edgy. This year, thanks to the reorgani-zation of SCORE's calendar by the Laughlin Chamber of Commerce, there were only five days between the Last Sunday race at Laughlin and the start of the Parker race. Still, a sur-prising number of teams got the race car re-prepped in the intervening time, and showed up for the Parker start. Robby Gordon was one of them, but he'd had an extra little touch of drama to deal with, when he Lost his motor in qualifying, and had to have a new power plant flown in to be transplanted into the truck. There were 29 of the Trick Trucks here, but four of them went out early. Mark Weyhrich's new truck lost its steering, hit a fence and the hood was skewered by a fence post. Cameron Steele's Cadillac lost its oil pump, Steve Jangaard's truck rolled over and caught fire, putting an end to his day, and somehow Jim Beaver got Dusty Times 7,

Scott Hartman ran only four minutes be-hind him, and then Eric Heiden was third. Tom Barnett ran fourth and Bryan Dodge was fifth and only 16 minutes off the lead pace. Four more dropped out on the second lap, and one of those was Griffith, who was reported to ha\'e lost his motor. Hartmann and his co-driver, Jeff Knoll, went on to take the win in their Wrangler, in spite of the fact that they'd had to dri\'e on a flat for a long time. In second, 11 minutes later, it was Dodge, who'd been stuck at Mile 2 when he'd tried to make a pass. Some spectators had pushed him free. He said it had been a "long day" in his two wheel drive Jeep. In third it was Tom and Thomas Barnett, in an-other Wrangler. Theirs is a stock one, which still has its catalytic con-verter, smog equipment and license plates. They'd had no flats and no problems. They were just six min-utes out of second. Fourth place went to Bob Standage, who'd had some excite-ment when he got up on his front tires on the first lap, then landed hard on his left rear and "debeaded and flattened" the tire. His time was 8:06: 14. In sixth it was Eric Helgeson, who'd blown a head gas-ket off the start, but put Stop Leak in and had no trouble with it. Then he'd broken the rear leaf pack and replaced it, and then he'd broken a track bar. They were only 37 sec-onds behind fifth place. In seventh it was Michael Shaffer and Da\'e Schneider, and then Jeff Jordan and Chris Watts were eighth, followed in by Clint Mazburg and Steve Hammack in ninth. Tenth went to William Frey and Matthew Perron, and in 11th it was Kevin Da\'is and Steve Kramer, in 14:38:34. Chase and John Rather were the last fin-ishers in 15:41:57. The Sportsman group was the fi-nal bunch to take the green flag, and there were 16 of them, a mixed bag of chase trucks and buggies. They were also supposed to do two laps. Seven of them went no distance at all, not eYen being recorded at the first timing check. Of the rest, Bob Howle and Joe Daraskevius had a 14 minute lead over Lee Finke in his LS l powered Coyote buggy. Bob Myers and Steve Craig, in a tandem buggy powered by a 1980cc VW motor, ran third. Andrew Megaw and Zack Perez and Tim West were fourth two minutes later. Myers, whose son-in-law, Steve Craig, rode in the back seat all the way, had to weld a broken clamp on the front beam, and also welded something in the rear, but they still moved up to take the win by 15 min-utes. Finke and his second driver, Daryl Drake had a fuel delivery prob-lemon the second lap, which slowed their time. It also caused the car to "die in a mud hole", which which the friendly spectators pushed them to hard ground. They went on to take second place, finishing their two laps in the time of 8:55:07. In third it was Ryan and Mark Valdez, but they didn't stop to talk about it. Their time was 10:22: 17. Fourth place went to Michael Si\'ak and Jacob Kelly, in 10:50:09, and fifth was Eric Kirby and Shawn Davis in a Toyota, in 12: 18:75. They were the final finisher in the class. The race was huge in numbers, and at times the army of rnlunteer course workers was pushed to keep up with stalled vehicles and crashes. But they handed it all effectively for the most part, and cleared the course expeditiously. That's no small mat-ter on the Parker course, where many miles are isolated from access roads, so no one can driYe in to re-move a broken vehicle. The course workers all had to be on site before the race started. The BITD goes next to Primm, for the Terrible's 250, on April 17th through the 20th.

l.l\Jc:!C:: 57™ UDDEHOLII SWEDISH RALLY Latvala Wins Big Far Fard BY MARTIN HOLMES PHOTOS: MAURICE SEWEN Jari-Matti latvala, 22 years old, was the gold medal winner in S weden, he drove to victory in his Ford Focus, seen here at speed. There was hardly a dry eye in the house. By winning the Swedish Rally virtually from start to finish on only his second appearance in a full works entered car, 22 year old Jari-Matti Lat\'ala smashed the 27 year record set by his idol Henri T oivonen and became the youngest driYer eYer to win a World rally. It was surely the most popular win possible. He drove with assurance and confidence, seizing the chance of good times because of a fa\'ourable initial starting order posi-tion, and holding his ad\'antage with the coolness of a Yeteran. Mikko HirYOnen, handicapped by running the first morning at the head of the field in treacherous conditions, droYe competently into second place, with the Stobart driwr Gigi Galli making it a 1-2-3 result for Ford. Sebastien loeb went off the road on the first day, damaging his C4 WRC and re-tired with engine trouble, while Petter Solberg struggled in to fourth place, the highest non-Ford finisher. Once again the world champion-ship headed up north for a winter e,·ent, and once again there was a long period of uncertainty whether the rally would arriYe before the snows. In fact, it was a tie. The forest areas, where the special stages are held, had a fair coYering of snow enough for some snow banks to form, but the weather kept above the zero mark which meant that the depth of ice nec-essary to giYe a permanent hard sur-face was too thin and got thinner as the rally drew e,·er closer. Karlstad it-self, adorned with its promotional logo of a smiling sun, was well aboYe the zero temperature mark, and snow had long since turned to slush and to water. Karlstad itself is such a suitable location for the base of the eYent that the organisers had to find other ways to contain the ewnt. They abandoned the stage Yenue in the far north of the route, e\'en though this was the loca-tion where snow banks were most likely, and they inYoked the FIA's Re-mote Service Park system. By haYing the permanent sen-ice location in Karlstad, Shakedown could be run on the outskirts of the town, and the city's trotting track could be used as a superspecial stage. This meant the rally cars could stay all day in more north-erly regions without the need for set-ting up a pennanent ser\'ice park away from Karlstad, but it created a lot of limits in the way that crews could op-erate. Compromises in car set-up were necessary, so that cars would be equally suitable for the smooth first runs through stages as the rougher second runs. The highlight at the eYent was that it was the 100th world championship rally start for Sebastien Loeb and his co-driYer, Daniel Elena, not a great · number by today's standards, but the achieYement of this pair in their Citroen cars was far and away the most impressive in the history of the sport. Not all was happy in the Citroen camp, howewr. When the cars re-· turned to their Paris base after Monte Carlo, it was discoYered that the en-gine in Sordo's car had been dam-aged when the turbocharger failed, e\'en though it had lost a little of its perfonnance capabilities on the final day of the eYent. Because Sordo was classified as a finisher, and then had the engine changed, he started the Swedish with a fiye minute penalty. In hindsight it would haYe been better to haw withdrawn Sordo's car before the finish at Monte Carlo, forfeiting what turned out to be one manufacturer's championship point, but would haw saYed incurring the fiye minute penalty here. "Unfortu-nately, we were not in full possession of the facts in Monte Carlo, when we had to make a decision", explained Citroen Sport's Director, OliYier Quesnel. FiYe of the registered teams took part in the eYent, only the Munchi's team having yet to start their competi-tion this season. There were some musical chairs among the entries for the subsidiary Ford teams. Galli stayed in the Stobart team, Henning Solberg took over the car used in Monte Carlo by DuYal, which meant a quick be-tween-rallies repaint of the once blue and green car, while Henning' s orange car from Monte Carlo, in turn, had to be painted green and blue so that non-registered driYer, but regular Stobart driwr, Matthew Wilson, could run it instead! Toni Gardemeister'sSuzuki had to haYe an engine change between events, but as he did not qualify as a finisher in Monte Carlo, he had no penalty here t:;J;Ji;;r;..i"!"'-"....--...... in Sweden. This was the first e\'ent in the 2008 PCWRC series and 19 of the 28 registered contenders were present, plus two nominated Guest driYers from the organisers as well (Patrik Flodin and last year's Group N winner, Oscar SYedlund). This was the first appearance of the "N4" hatchback Subaru Impreza in the PCWRC series and no fewer than four championship teams were run-ning these cars, as were three priYa-teers. For the first time a driYer had declared his intention to run a Super 2000 car in the series, this was the Swedish driYer Patrik Sandell, the 2006 Junior Champion who arriYed in the Peugeot 207 S2000 used last year by Jimmy Joge. Sandell is one of two drivers planning to contest both the Production Car and also the Jun-ior series, the other being Martin Prokop. The Pirelli control tyre rule brought fresh challenges for the sup-plier, as it had been decided the rally would be run using narrow 16 inch wheels, eYen though in 2009 the snow tyres (application for Rally Norway) will be fitted to regular 15 inch wheels, as used for graYel rallies. More than this, there was a development with the studding. In past years, teams were able to arrange their own studding, mak-ing themseh-es a selection of tyres in which the studs were deeply embed-ded into the tread block suitable for rough graYel use with maybe 4mm of protrusion, with protrusion further out of the block suitable for snow or ice conditions. faery tyre supplied by Pirelli had studs protruding by 7mm, apparently making them less ideal and highly disadYantageous for the graY-elly conditions which were anticipated for the second runs through stages but in the eYent these longer studs were remarkably effectiw and gave hardly any trouble to crews. Of the 61 crews accepted for the start, only seven drivers were Swedish, although O\'er a hundred were entered in the shorter two-day national e,·ent planned to run in tandem with the world championship rally and using some of the same stages on the Satur-day-Sunday. Daniel Carlsson had en-tered the world championship e\'ent in a Peugeot 307 WRC, sponsored by a national telecom company, but when it was learned they wanted to experiment with in-car transmissions they were banned from the WRC e\'ent and the entry was transferred to the nationale\'ent instead. Day 1 8 Stages, gm-el, 122.14kms. Despite predictions the Shake-down was satisfactorily run on a short course located adjacent to the central SerYice Park outside Karlstad and the dri\'ers reported the conditions were surprisingly nice considering the warm weather. Chris Atkinson was fa test of all, ahead of Sebastien Loeb and Petter Solberg. There was no ceremo-nial start that evening, but there was the first run round the trotting track superspecial course, where it was Petter's turn to be fastest of all, the first time a Subaru had led a World Rally since Finland in 2007. Atkinson dropped a little time on the stage when the clutch failed. The local superstar of the event was P.G. Andersson, fresh from his great driYe in Monte Carlo, and journalists scoured the family records for eYery possible picture of the young Suzuki driwr. Mikko HirYonen was quite aware of his new responsibilities ... Tactics? ''None, its got to be flat-out all the way". With the temperature abo\'e zero all the time, the talk was always about tyres. HirYOnen: "It will be harder on the tyres and more tricky for the drh·ers. There could be punctures where there is a lot of graYel." The conditions were worrying, and it wasn't just the mat-ter of the damage to the cars and to the tracks themseh-es. 1l1e speeds were incredible. The first forest stage of the rally was won at an aYerage of 125kph, the second time through the a,·erage was 126.16kph. The problem of the morning, however, was wet snow, slush. For the first driYers through tl1e stages this was ,·ery treacherous, and it was not surprising that the first car through went off the road. The sur-prise was that this was Loeb ... It was a tricky double bend and he rolled, damaging a water pipe and the clutch. He was able to repair the water hose before he got to the remote service area at Sunne, albeit arri\ing fiw min-utes behind schedule, but then he abandoned the struggle on the road section to the next stage. Jari-Matti\-ala meanwhile was ha, ing the time of his life. Running 10th car on the road he made a series of best times, immediately taking oYer the lead from Solberg, and pulling away from HirYonen who was running second car. Another drh·er in trouble was Atkinson, whose car went straight into a snow bank, causing him to lose a quarter of an hour, waiting for help. "I don't know what happened at all. The car has a mind of its own." With Loeb out of the eYent for the day, Fords were running in the top four places with the Subaru of Petter Solberg fifth, being as delicate in his opinions as possible, but from the colourofhiseyesyou knew hisSubaru was next to undriwable. The Swedish favourite P.G. Andersson stopped on Stage 4 with an engine problem "Oil leaking, and warning lights blazing". An excitement for many visiting spectators was the battle between the Norwegians. At Sunne, Henning Solberg was up to third, in front of Galli and Petter, Mads Ostberg was eighth in his newly acquired 06 spec Subaru, just 1.6 sec-ond in front of Andreas Mikkelsen. Mikkelsen was far from happy, how-ever, haYing a problem with a wastegate Yal\'e which progressi\'ely ebbed his power. While Ostberg fin-ished Stage 4 on a flat tyre, Urmo Aan was ha\'ing a dramatic rally, spending some se\·en minutes on Stage 4 in a snow bank.

KARTEK Dunn Wins TWD Classes And overall Sean Dunn entered Class 1 and Class well. MORE kicked off the new year with it's first race, early in January and a pretty good time was had by all. As usual, all the racers were ready to challenge the course and the elements and, as far as we could tell, a good time was had by all, well, not all, as the finishing ratio was way down. There were fiw entered in the Class 1 contest, they had to get through 12 laps for their race and, unfortunately, only two of them made it all the way. At the end of the first lap it was Ron Brant showing everyone the way, Sean Dunn came along in the second spot, Joe Willardsen was in third place, Jennifer Clemison ran PHOTOS: TRACKSIDE PHOTO 10 in his Class 10 car, he won both classes and he was the overall winner as fourth and Alex Gonzales was in the fifth spot. At the conclusion of their second lap it was still Ron Brant in the lead, Sean Dunn held on in second place, about a minute in arrears, Joe Willardsen still held the third spot, Jennifer Clemison was first off the podium and Alex Gonzales had de-cided to call it a day. Laps 3 through 7 saw no changes in position in the Class 1 race and when we got to the end of the eighth lap it was Joe W illardsen now in the class lead, Sean Dunn was a bit over a minute behind the class leader, having to stop and change a flat tire on his fourth lap and Jennifer Clemison was running in third place. Sean Dunn had an-other two flats that had to be changed. Ron Brant, who had led the class until this lap, had disap-peared from the scoring charts. There were no position changes on Lap 9, it was still W illardsen, Dunn and Clemison. On the 10th lap, Joe W illardsen had some troubles, Sean Dunn took the class lead, Joe slipped into the second spot and Jennifer Clemison still hung on in third spot. On the next to last lap it was still Sean Dunn holding the lead, Joe W illardsen was in second place, he was a bit less than three minutes in arrears and Jennifer Clemison had disappeared from the race. Gary Kincaid took the Class 1300 win but it was really close, second place was a mere 32 seconds in arrears. The checkers flew, it was Sean Dunn taking the Class 1 win, Joe W illardsen followed him in, less than two minutes in arrears. Now comes the best part, Sean Dunn was having a brand new Class 1 car built but it wasn't ready for this race. Soooooo, he entered in Class 10 and also entered in the Class 1 con-test, he took the Class 1 win, took the Class 10 win and he was the overall race winner as well. Congrats on a fine drive. The Trophy Challenge cars were up next, they had nine laps to run for their race. There were six of them waiting for the green flag, alas, only one car would see the check-ered flag. At the end of their first lap it was Gary Kincaid in the lead, Jim Kalp came along a bit under two minutes behind the leader, Wendell Mortensen ran in third place, Debbie Rash was in fourth, Diana Mooney was fifth and Tut Cote was running in sixth place. There were no positions changes on the second lap. Lap 3 saw Gary Kincaid still leading the class, Wendell Mortensen had moved up into sec-ond place, Debbie Rash was up a spot into third, Jim Kalp had dropped back to fourth place, Tut Cote was up a spot into fifth and Diana Mooney dropped a spot into sixth place. There were no position changes on the fourth lap. Lap 5, Gary Kincaid still led the pack, he now had eight minutes on Wendell Mortensen, Debbie Rash still held on in the third spot, Tut Cote was up a spot into fourth place, Jim Kalp dropped a spot, he was now in fifth place and Diana Mooney held on in sixth. Once again, there were no posi-tion changes on the sixth lap. The seventh lap saw significant changes, Gary Kincaid still led the pack, Tut Cote had moved up into second place, he was some 40 min-utes behind the leader, Jim Kalp was up a few spots into third place and Diana Mooney was now in fourth place. Wendell Mortensen and Debbie Rash were on their respec-tive trailers. The eighth lap was also quite eventful, Gary Kincaid still led the Trophy Challenge class, now he was all alone as Tut Cote, Jim Kalp and Diana Mooney were all out of the race. Lap 9, Gary Kincaid came around to take the checkered flag, a nice win and he led the class all the way. The Class 1400 contingent had seven laps to make their race. Seven of them took the green flag, but it was attrition city as only two made it to the finish line. When they fin-ished their first lap it was Shawn Walters showing the way, Mike Hobbs was right there in second place, he was a mere nine seconds behind the leader, Mitchel Pederson ran in third, he was two minutes back, Rhonda Parkhouse was in fourth place and Frank Demedio was running in fifth place. Tim Scott was in sixth and Allen Byma was running seventh. Shawn Walters took the Class 1450 win with less than two minutes to spare, he's seen here throwin' a bit of dirt around.

Lap 11, last lap and, surprise, it was Bob Ledsinger taking the check-ered flag. It was a great win for him and Chris Russell had some major problems on his last lap and was out of the fray. The Class 5 contest wasn't much of a contest. They had to run 11 laps for their race and there were only two cars in the class and at the end of their first lap it was Chris Bowman with a 20 minute lead over Keith Rogovin. The second lap ended and Chris Bowman came around with ease but Keith Rogovin had succumbed to terminal car troubles and was seen no more. It was an easy win for Chris Bow-man, he motored around at about 20 minutes a lap and took the check-ered flag just a bit more than four hours on the course.

April 2008 banquet took place January 5 at Michael Gaughan's South Point Hotel and Casino. O\'er 400 guests attended the award ce.remony, A one hour open bar warmed everyone's spirits before dinner. The South Point Hotel served a luxu-rious buffet with a variety of ap-petizing salads, and superior en-trees, and a \'ariety of excellent desserts. This was the 38th annual SNORE awards ceremony. John Pellissier, outgoing SNORE President, was this year's emcee. His first duty was to introduce the new 2008 SNORE President, Don Wall who spoke for a few minutes before turning the podium back to John. It was also coinciden• tally Don Wall's birthday. We wish you many more Happy Birthdays, Don Before the start of the awards, the 2007 SNORE Make a Wish Ride \"ideo was pre-sented. (Insert statistics) The major event of the evening was the Bryan Freeman trifecta," Brian received the Driver of the Year Award, the ½ 1600 Class Championship and the O\'erall Points Champi-onship with 4,206 points. He was also one of only four dri\•-ers who received the prestigious "Milestone Award" for driving every mile of every race during the 2007 season. The other dri\'ers were Gary Messer, Rulo Solano, and Corey Goin. Brian Freeman also holds the distinction of being the only third generation O\'erall Points Champion in SNORE or any other off-road racing organiza• tion with his parents and grand-parents winning past Champi• onships. But Brian is no stranger to the winner circle; he won the tricycle race at Jean, Nevada when he was only three years old in 1983. Most notable of his awards was the prestigious Driwr of the Year. This award is not some• thing you automatically win but it is the result of a vote by the entire six hundred and some odd SNORE members. Brian is \'ery humble and is the first to admit that off.road racing is a team sport. Besides thanking the usual long list of family, friends, and sponsor, Brian singled out one individual for special thanks. Up to that time no one had explained why Bryan "Butter Bean" Adams won Sportsman of the Year. At the Buffalo Bill race, Brian broke a rocker ann on his engine, when "Bean" came up. Brian tried to give him the "thumbs up" sign and wa\'e him on but "Bean" stopped anyway almost taking Brian "Out." "What do you need, Brian?" Adams asks. "Bean, I broke a part on my motor, so just keep going," Re-plies Brian Well, you can take the part off my motor." "No Bean, just keep going." "Well, I could use a break, so just take it off my motor." So Brian took the part of "Bean's" motor and continued the race. But Bryan Adams was out until after dark trying to finish his race. "Thank you \'ery much, 'But• ter Bean' for all your help." The biggest surprise of the e\'ening was a proposal of mar• riage by John Pellissier to Miss Chesha Rich during the Ladies President's Awards. John dropped to one knee and popped the question to the totally surprised Miss Rich, Amid a tor• rent of tears, she managed a hardy yes and the whole room went crazy for a good fi\'e min-utes or more. At Left, Top to Bottom, Corey Torres took home the Class 9 Championship and Corey was second overall in points as well, he's one happy young man. Billy Shapley accepted the awards for Mechanic Of The Year, for his father, Bill Shapley, who was unable to attend. Garfield Davies, a regular competitor in the Class 10 ranks was awarded the True Grit Award, here with trophy and check. Dusty Times

Reply To Maryetta Bowman On The Clark County Land Grab You Have An As a life long resident to Clark County and now Chairman of the County Commission I have watched a lot of changes over the past 40 years. When I grew up in Las Vegas in the 60'and 70's there was desert lands that surrounded the entire small city of Las Vegas. I can also remember as a kid attending the Mint 400 that was held near Nellis Dunes and being at the Speedrome. In my opinion it was one of the most exciting races that my friends and I looked forward to each year. I have to admit that nobody ever really expected the growth and changes in our valley. While the growth has been good and has provided you and me with years of employment, the opportunities to new housing, entertainment and the necessities of life, there are some things that haven't been so good. For example, transportation and parks are things that I think about all the time, and as we try to do our best to catch up with transportation, it is the latter that I wish to speak to today. When I think about all that Las Vegas has to offer, the opportunity for off-road recreation is lagging behind. My view is not alone; Commissioner Collins, who's District the Nellis Dunes area resides within, feels the same way. Consequently, in 2005 the Commission directed staff to study the issue of off-road recreation and the opportunities to permanently have our United States Congress protect the land known as the Nellis Dunes in the Las Vegas valley. From that research, the Commission believes Congress should take immediate action to protect these lands from any possible future private development. Over the last two and a half years, the County has: • met one on one with as many OHV organizations as possible, • attended almost every off-road organizations' local event, • published information on the internet, at local race shops, power sports dealerships and vendors shops, • interviewed with the local media (radio, television, newspaper) to solicit input, • created a public web site for public comments in efforts to get the public's opinion and keep the community involved with our efforts. _ From these efforts, the County has submitted to Congress monthly progress reports. In the six months of reporting, from August 2007 to January 2008, the County has received 1,100 letters of web page comments and emails supporting our proposal. We believe this has been a successful effort to reach the public one on one. And we will continue to reach out for the public's comments. Opportunity In January 2008 the BLM held three open house meetings. Initially, both agencies agreed a joint press release was paramount to offer an accurate and constant message. Unfortunately an erroneous press release was sent out stating that Clark County's proposal included closing off the area by fencing and charging fees to the public. There have not been any discussions to do either of those things. The County has maintained that an Advisory Group made up of OHV users will be created to address issues like this. _The Las Vegas Review Journal picked up on the mistake release and wrote a story before it could be corrected. Once the story hit, a number of. OHV community activists began posting this information out on various OHV web sites. Our staff has been working with the OHV community to correct any false information since that time. With so much erroneous information 'circulating, it is important to focus on the facts: • Clark County is not proposing to fence in this location, nor is the County proposing fees to ride in this area. • The first goal is to secure the land for the public and protect it for future generations of off-roader' s. • The second goal is to create an Advisory Council made up of OHV users to address all issues, and make recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners. It would be-public decision thereafter to determine how best to care for these lands. • We are asking Congress to deed restrict the land from development so it could not be converted into any other uses (such as conservation, baseball or football fields) . Under such a scenario, the County under the law also could not sell any of these lands for private development. • The County is also asking that any bill contain language that this area would be given back to Congress should we fail to meet our responsibilities to take care of the land as the OHV community has requested. You can make a difference and preserve this land for all of us to enjoy. We ask you to help us by visiting the county's web page at to educate yourself and to leave us your comments. I hope that the efforts that we put forward today will preserve the Nellis Dunes area for not only my family, but yours, and many others, for many generations to come. Sincerely, Rory Reid, Chairman, Clark County Board of County Commissioners, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway, Las Vegas, NV 89155. 702-455-3500 Page 46 April 2008 Dusty Times

April 2008 AT PARKER 425 Feb. 1st & 2nd, 2008 The 2008 ATK-Jeepspeed Desert Race Series got off to a flying start at Parker, Arizona on the first week-end of February. The Bes t in the Desert race promoters had a record entry of 310 race trucks and cars. The ATK/ field consisted of 24 Rubicon Express Jeepspeed Chal-lenge contenders and four Currie Jeepspeed Cup race Jeeps. The town of Parker and The Blue Water Resort and Casino hosted this exciting historic off road race on Bureau of Land Manage-ment approved wild desert trails alongside the mighty Colorado RiYer. On Friday, February 1st J eepspeed, assisted by per-sonnel from ATK Engines, GearHeadJeep, Currie En-terprises and Rubicon Ex-press in Contingency Row conducted pre-season Jeepspeed rule compliance of all the race Jeeps prior to the Best in the Desert (BITD) safety checks and competitor registration. The excitement level was high as O\'er 300 teams and nearly 100 sponsors and Yendors prepared for the weekend. One thousand people attended the pre-race briefing Friday night before pit support teams departed for their loca-tions on the 140 mile race loop. Saturday, February 2nd Parker woke up to the sound and Yisual impact of 310 race vehicles arriving downtown with police es-cort. The first cars left the line and raced out of the city at 7: 15 a.m., one every 45 seconds and a second three lap group every 30 seconds, followed by the Jeepspeed two lap Group 1, every 15 seconds. The new Jon Krellwitz Team ATK Currie Cup Wrangler was not finished in time for this event and Jon was forced to rent a race Cherokee from Fab Tech Motorsports in order to gain Championship points. Jon initially led the race until a failed water hose resulted in the motor o ,. e r h e a t i n g a n d s u b s e -quent retirement Fab Tech CEO, Dave Winner, placed Dusty Times

Mike Barnett went on to win this unlimited Jeepspeed class in his J 10 Jeep V8 pickup b eing the only sur\"ivor in the group. The real Jee p spee d ac-tion took place in the Rubicon Express Jeepspeed Challenge Class with over 20 similarly equipped Cherokees and Wranglers battling for the win. The initial leader and race favorite, 18 year old Ray Griffith, took an early lead in his yellow Wrangler. The 2007 Champion looked like he was going to be impossible to beat until he also suffered an unchar-acteristic ei1gine failure 100 miles into the 280 mile race. Immediately he was on the radio looking for ATK! Ray's retirement opened the door for Jeff Hartman in the Dust Junkies Wran-gler and Tom Barnett turn-ing in an outstanding per-formance in his street legal 1997 Wrangler. Tom had just signed up as Team GearHeadJeep and his ATK stock street smog legal en-gine was powering his Wran-gler away from other full race Jeeps. It looked like Wranglers firs t and second until Tom had to stop to repair his co-driver son Thomas' window net that had come adrift and could not continue with this safety violation until re-paired, thus allowing Brian Dodge to storm by in his hot rod Cherokee. So at the finish line it was the Hartman/Knoll mean looking black Wran-gler taking the win after winning the last race of 2007, followed by Brian Dodge m aking his first ap-pearance on the Jee p speed podium after seve r a l years in the series, and third place went to the Barnett father and son duo in the Team GearHeadJeep Wran-gler complete with all street legal gear including hard-top and stereo! A s the winner's celebra-tions took place at the po-dium in front of several hundre d fans, media and television crews there were many great still go-ing on throughout the Jeep speed Challenge group with brand new Jeepspeed entries of Bob Standage, Perro Coan, John Helton, Ronald Giminez and sea-soned veterans like Bill Frey, Jim Hunt, Steve Ghamari, Ke\'in Dads and Eric Filar.

BAKERSFIELD, CA (October 19, 2007) On Friday October 12, 2007, Governor Schwarzenegger signed S.B.742 into law. This bill reforms the Califor-nia Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) program and extends the date it is scheduled to sunset for ten years. The OHMVR program has been a source of contention for off-roaders and environ-mentalists alike. It has n · e n b e e n t h e s u b j e c t o f an audit by the State of California. The audit brought to light the fact that the management of the program, as orga-nized, with a commission that was given the major-ity of the funding au-thority was dysfunc-tional. The commission, in recent years, as ap-[ April 2008 pointed by the legislature and Governor, had not shown its commitment to fulfill the mission of the program. During the las t grants cycle the OHMVR Commission only ap-proved $365,000, from an allotment of $18 mil-lion, for on the ground maintenance of trails. The OHMVR program has historically gone to great lengths to manage its OHV areas in an eco-logically balanced man-ner. This bill continues that tradition while at the same time providing the needed funding for maintaining the exist-ing OHV areas in the state. This bill is the product of long and comprehen-sive negotiations with all concerned parties. I[ was authored by California State Senator Darrell Steinberg, Chairman of the Natural Resources Committee. Off-road rec-reation is often a contro-versial issue and all par-ties involved in this pro-cess are to be commended for their dedication to the negotiation process. The end product is a piece of legislation that continues the OHMVR Division's tradition of e n ,. i r o n m e n t a 1 p r o t e c -tion while at the same time prodding the neces-sary funds to manage an increasingly popular form of family recre-ation. This bill is a win-ner for all Californians! Some key changes made by this legislation are: The OHMVR Commis-sion, which previously held the majority of the funding power, now has an advisory role. It has also been expanded from seven members to nine. The two additions are to be appointed by the Gov-ernor and will require Senate confirmation. Grant funding deci sions will now be made by the OHMVR division. Fines for excursion into areas closed to OHV operation have increased from $35 to $50 for the first offense and for the second offense within seven years being in-creased to $75. The third offense will not exceed $150. The OHV commu-nity understands the im-portance of protecting Wilderness areas. With regard to Roadless Areas, all in-ventoried system road and trail routes existing on or before January 1, 2009 are not only pro-tected as legislatively in-tended legitimate routes but are also available for state funding. Program funding will no longer be decided by fuel tax studies. The Rev-enue & Taxation code clearly states that the funds transferred to the OHV Trust Fund will be equal to the per-cent transferred in 2007. Adjustments will be made n · e r y five ye a r s b a s e d o n OHV recreation use. The sunset, or end of the pro-gram, is the longest pe-riod in recent history: ten years.

.... this process belieYed that the bill was a good com-promise and did not feel the need rewrite the pro-gram again in a short time period. The cost of "Green Sticker" registration will increase from $25 to $50 eYery two years. The in-crease of $25 goes di-rectly into the OHV Trust Fund. During nego-t iations t his was a con-t r o ,. e r s i a l i s s u e . T h e i n -crease agreed upon in the end was significantly lower than originally proposed.

run over the weekend -tells us: "TrophyKart rac-ing is the best thing ever to happen to off-road racing families. It brings the kids into the race truck environment at a very early age. These ve-hicles are not lust toys, but are miniature ver-sions of real race trucks with sophisticated sus-pensions, roll bars, and all of the safety equip-ment used by the big guys. Low horsepower engines assure that this type of racing is a driv-ing contest rather than a speed contest. The kids are having a great time!" Title Sponsors for the show come from two sides of off-roading. 4 Wheel Parts and their s u p p l i e r s w i 11 c o ,. e r t h e 4 -wheelin' demands and Cycle Parts West will sat-isfy visitors looking for a good deal on motor-cycle/ATV products. Sup-porting Sponsors includ-ing Pro Comp Suspen-sion, Off Road Ware-house, KTM North America, and ITP Tires will also play a major role.

To allow sufficient space for us to display your vehicle in the most effective manner it is suggested that the object you are advertising occupy no more than 75% of the space in the photograph. To achieve the highest quality in your photograph you should not provide Xerox copies, photo prints in less 600dpi if computer generated, or photographs already printed as halftones. It is always best to provide an actual photograph or a digital photograph printed on photo quality paper with a photo printer, not smaller than 4x3" in size. We also accept digital imagery on compact disc in jpg, tif, and pdf formats. Your photograph, regardless of the media, should never be folded as it is impossible to remove the line created by the fold. Adding a piece of stiff cardboard or heavy cover quality paper with your photograph will help to protect it on it's journey to our offices. The higher quality the original photograph, the better it will appear in your ad. Classlfled ... Some of the items advertised in these pages may not be le-gal for sale or use in all 50 states.
