WHIPLASH OFF R OAD RACING -Coverage begins on Torque.TV's Motorsport Channel, including all classe of the Vulture Mine Season Opener. "This TV racing coverage is anything but 'typical,' says Jay McKinley, Director of Whiplash Motor Sports, "Whiplash' staff and I were on the edge of our chairs while previewing this film ... and we put on the event!" Whiplash has been a corner stone of Off Road Racing in the desert South West for nearly 25 years, offering a 10 race series for first time racers and ea oned professionals to compete in everything from 50cc ATV to Dirt Bikes, to Trophy Trucks. "Drivers compete against each other but also against the grueling desert environment," says Jesse Raiford, Torque.TV's CEO, "We chose Breakpoint Media to cover the event because they give viewers a real feel for the demands of desert racing and capture the stories of the men and women behind the wheel." The Vulture Mine area, located some 50 miles North West of Phoenix, hosts the first Whiplash Off Road Racing event of the 2008 season. Once a prosperous Gold Mine and booming community of the late 1800's, Vulture Mine is the namesake for one the regions toughest and most popular off road events. The race takes place on Public lands that surround the privately owned mine. SKYJACKER -Skyjacker Suspensions has announced sponsorship of the Lucas Oil World Series of Racing's (WSORR) upcoming "Tour 2008" season. The sponsorship includes the position as "Official Shock and Suspension" of Crandon International Off-Road Racing the "Indy 500" of o"ff-road racing tracks now in its 39th season. Skyjacker is a long-time sponsor of short course off-road racing and fields a trio of championship drivers. In addition, the popular Skyjacker "Shock of the Race", a special segment on every WSORR TV episode on SPEED Channel, continues this coming season. Widely known as "The Bear of Suspensions", Skyjacker manufacturers a full line of the highest quality suspension products. Skyjacker offers a huge range of lift heights and levels of performance for most Chevrolet\GMC, Dodge, Ford, Jeep and Toyota vehicles. Skyjacker markets its products under trade names such as Rock Ready®, Softride®, Flex Series® and Hydro & Nitro Shocks. The company has achieved a level of excellence that is unmatched in motor sports winning Championships in. many forms of off-road racing. "The off-road audience is obviously a key market for us and the exposure we receive through both the outstanding SPEED TV coverage and at World Series venues like Crandon Raceway allows us to continue to prosper as a-company," ·said Lee McGuire, marketing director, Skyjacker Suspensions. We have found it is the real deal at Crandon and WSORR and that is why we are active with this explosive Series," she said. This season, Skyjacker added yet another champion racer to its stable with Carl Renezeder, (Newport Beach, Calif.) sporting Skyjacker colors. Renezeder and Taylor are multiple winners of WSORR Cup races held at Crandon International Off-Road Raceway each year such as the BorgWarner Shootout and the Forest County Potawatomi Chairmanis Cup. Taylor is also the reigning PRO 2WD "World Champion".

Bryce Menzies and Fraley finished one-two in Single Buggy last year, but this is the first year that either of them has driven a race truck and this is the first full season for Job, Freeman and Krahenbul in this type of racing. "Steve Menzies is applying all of his business acumen to Menzies Motorsports and the result is our entire team is in position each race to be extremely competitive," said MacCachren, who is now in Mexico pre-running for next weekend's 40'h Tecate SCORE Baja 500 desert race where he will split driving with team owner Mark Post in the No. 1 Rockstar/ Makita Ford F-150 SCORE Trophy-Truck. "Steve Menzies has created a very friendly, but intensely serious, work environment and while he certainly has opinions, he is a great listener and a n extremely quick learner. All of these characteristics can't be bought with money and they are the really keys to the success Menzies Motorsports is having this year." "The CORR Series is like post-seas·on play in the NBA or the NFL you just keep battling against the best short-course off-road racers in the world every time the whistle blows or the ball is snapped. If you blink, you just got passed by three guys." Menzies Motorsports is based out of a state-of-the-art 31,000-square foot race shop in southwest Las Vegas and the new team also has a test facility with a one-mile track southeast of Las Vegas which is laid out nearly identically to course at the Las Vegas International Off-Road Raceway in Primm, Nev. Kroyer Racing Engines of Las Vegas builds the Ford truck engines and the Honda Pro Buggy motors for Menzies Motorsports while Southern California's FAT Performance builds the VW Single Buggy engines. Menzies Motorsports, owned by prominent Las Vegas contractor Steve Menzies, is making a major impact despite being only in its second season of existence and first year with more than two drivers.

The Easy Fuel capless fuel-filler system is a Ford-exclusive feature that uses an integrated spring-loaded flapper door to eliminate the need for a fuel tank screw cap. That means no more fumbling to remove and tighten the cap and less fuel odor on customers' hands or gloves when they're at the pump. These are just two of the reasons behind Ford's decision to offer Easy Fuel as standard equipment across the Ford, Lincoln and Mercury product lineups.

This first weekend was one of those when the television folks were there to film the action live. The Saturday Pro 2 event was the one chosen by NBC TV to show live this weekend, and the amount of coordination and planning it took to get it mov-ing right on time was astonish-ing. Happily, this was one of those events that went off as planned, and all was apparently well in TV land. One slight difficulty with hav-ing the race in Pomona, right in among the quiet residences as it were, is that there are strict noise laws in effect. As a result, the trucks were not allowed on the track on Friday night to practice and qualify as they do at most venues. The Single Bug-gies and Pro Buggies were given permission, but the trucks had to wait for Saturday morning to qualify. That crowds the schedule a bit for the pit folk, who then have to get them ready to race the same day. But the spectators like it. The long front straight in front of the grandstands is paved, as is Turn 1, to the left, then a short straight and Turn 2, another left-hander. The pave-ment ends abruptly as the cars exit Turn 2. The staging area for the start is on the pavement, but as the trucks and cars come in from the pits they cross the end of Turn 5, which is dirt and well watered, so they bring mud onto the pavement, which quickly dries and turns to dust. In be-tween events there was a street sweeper sweeping the pavement, but it was almost a lost cause, because the next line up of ve-hicles tracked in mud all over again. The CORR folks put an additive into the dirt that is sup-posed to hold down the dust, and it probably does, but so far no one has found anything that really works well in that respect. Saturday's Pro 2 Main event started at about 12:40, some-how working within the limits of NBC's needs. There were 21 trucks on the track, some sport-ing new paint jobs, new color schemes and new sponsors. Rob MacCachren had a new Ford and a new sponsor, while Ricky Johnson was driving the Ford that MacCachren did well in last year. Five of them were Rook-ies, and one of those was Jeremy McGrath. John Greaves was lined up last in his Toyota be-cause he'd rolled during the practice/qualifying, and thus, didn't qualify. They gave them two pace laps before the rolling start. MacCachren got the hole shot, and they all made it through the first turn except Rodrigo Ampudia, who exited the course with a defu net rear suspension, after a hard hit broke a rear arm. Surprisingly, it was dusty. The CORR people had watered, but it had been too early, and in the unexpect-edly hot sun it had pretty much dried up by the time the race • started. Behind MacCachren it was Carl Renezeder in his new Ford, then the whole pack, ex-cluding Greaves, who limped off with suspension problems. Mark Shoaff, a desert racer new to this, stalled briefly in the big hole, and then the mandatory yellow flag came out. Evan Evans pulled his Chevy into the Hot Pits when he discovered he couldn't shift, and they waved the green flag. Evans is still driv-ing his old truck, but has a new one in the works. Scott Taylor is driving a new truck, and is still "sortin' it out." The newly created Pro Spec Division win went to Kevin Davis both rounds, he's seen here flying his Chevy to the checkers. Marty Hart looks like he's losing here, he won Pro Lite on Saturday, Sunday was a disaster for Marty and his Ford. Now it was MacCachren, Ricky Johnson, Renezeder, Todd LeDuc in a Ford, and Jerry Whelchel. MacCachren and Johnson had a two-man battle going and everyone else dropped back. They fought for the remaining laps, with MacCachren in front and Johnson second. But each lap Johnson would close up on MacCachren as they existed the hole, and get closer until they ran into the moguls, a series of five bumps leading into Turn 5. MacCachren's truck handled marginally better through them and he'd pull away again. In Turn 3, a high banked left-hander off the "table top mesa" at the back, MacCachren took the high line each time, and Johnson went low. Johnson would gain a few feet, but as they exited the turn MacCachren would have the speed to go back into the lead. Page a July 2008 Dusty Times

Then it was MacCachren, Foddrill, and a tight pack consisting of George, Dale Dondel and Doug Fortin. That was a five-pack of off road talent! Someone stalled in the hole and brought out a local yellow, but everyone got around him alright. On the third lap it was MacCachren, Foddrill, George, Fortin and Dondel. One car had been parked backwards in Turn 1, but was towed away, and then someone parked in Turn 2 for a while. MacCachren continued to lead, and George was slowly closing on Foddrill. By the sixth lap he was around him and look-ing at MacCachren's rear bumper. His motor was scream-ing as he tried to catch up. On the eighth lap they threw the full course yellow, and then things went askew again. Somehow Foddrill got out of order, and they had to stop the field to try to straighten things out. To the spectators it looked as if they never did get it quite right.

They threw the full course yellow, and Rick Gutierrez found himself parked on the berm in Turn 5, and an-other car was parked right be-hind him. On the restart, with Freeman still in front, Doug Renfro got sideways in Turn 5, but got himself going again. By now Freeman had built quite a lead and Curt Geer was firm in second place, with Brock Kraenbuhl in third. Billy McCool, who said he was too low geared for this course, lost a couple of laps when he lost a wheel, and Brandon Catello's car was barely moving. At the finish it was Freeman, Geer and Kraenbuhl. After the Saturday racing was ove·r, CORR officials had the course maintenance team re-move the final mogul, which had made it very hard for the cars to get all four wheels on the ground before entering Turn 5. It had been the cause of several incidents, and it was hoped things would go better in the turn on Sunday. Sunday's morning started with practice and qualifying again, which gives the spectators something to watch if they've ar-rived early. Then the first event was the Single Buggy race, this time with 26 cars starting. Some-thing went wrong with Robert Lansing's car and he was towed off before the start. Once again, Freeman went into the early Dusty Times lead, with Kennedy in second and Geer third. Freeman got a big gap between himself and sec-ond place and Kennedy dropped back, and then rolled over in Turn 5, landing on his side. At about the same time a couple of cars were parked on Turn 3, one facing backwards and one high-centered on the berm, both had to be towed off. A couple of laps later they threw the full course yellow, with Freeman a long way in front of Cory Boyer. They were already dealing with lapped cars. After the restart, Ryan Schank rolled over at the start of the moguls, and on the fol-lowing lap someone went off Turn 2 upside down. Mean-while, Freeman moved steadily on, but now Rino Navara had passed Boyer for second, but Boyer was pushing hard, trying to catch him back up. And then suddenly, he was upside down in Turn 3. Now it was Freeman, Navara, Geer, and Kyle Quinn in a new McCool chassis, lead-ing the pack to the finish. That made Freeman two for two, a good start on the season for a rookie. It was an exciting and enter-taining weekend of racing. There are seven more weekends to come, a couple in Las Vegas in May and October, two more in Pomona, in June and August, and three in Chula Vista in July, September and December. There will be many more oppor-tunities for excitement and en-tertainment as the CORR sea-son progresses. ~ ....

lJ\J2C: 28™ RALLY JORDAN Nlrvanen-Fard Win BY MARTIN HOLMES PHOTOS: MAURICE SELDEN Mikko Hirvonen and Jarmo Lehtinen drove their Ford Focus RS to victory in Jordan, seen here speeding to the finish line. It wasn't boring! Everyone who went to Jordan for the rally was un-sure how it would really turn out, but five different leaders in three dif-ferent types of car -that was some-thing special. Mikko Hirvonen, the eventual winner in this rallying game of musical chairs, took the lead in the Drivers' Championship while BP Ford Abu Dhabi pulled ahead in the series for Manufacturers. Sebastien Loeb suffered a road accident, ironi-cally meeting head-on one of his old rally cars, and still ended up with one extra point for Citroen Total. Round 5 of the 2008 World Rally Championship took teams into a completely new geographical region. Following last year's Rally Ireland, Jordan was the second new venue for the FIA World Rally Championship in six months. In earlier times, new events seemed to come along only once every two years or so! This was the 30th nation to run a rally in the World Series, it was the first such event in the Middle East and the first such event in an Arab country since 1976. One of the problems faced was the definition of the event. Was Jor-dan officially a "long haul" or a "Eu-ropean" rally? On this rested these-lection of support equipment which teams had to bring. The everlasting tension in Israel forced teams to bring their equipment through the Red Sea and up to the Jordanian port of Aqaba, the longest route and a lot more expensive than bringing it di-rectly across Israel, but less problem-atical. When the safest routing for the equipment was worked out, the event was eventually defined to be a semi-long haul event, long haul in transportation arrangements but Eu-ropean in style of equipment, so visu-ally the service park looked like a normal European event. This was because the equipment has to be taken all the way to Sardinia after-wards. rx <•oo, 654-7223 CA l310J 539-2266 Page 16 July. 2008 Sebastien Ogier and Julian Ingrassia took the win in JWRC in their Citroen C2, they finished 1 1th overall as well. The nature of the stages was spe-cial. All of them were run on gravel roads, but several stretches of route were purpose-built for the rally and the surfaces were coated with salty sludge taken from the nearby Dead Sea, which when dried out created a remarkably hard surface. There were also some late changes to the event's organisation, meaning elaborately agreed plans had to be made all over again. The good thing was that sev-eral experienced rally people from Finland were recruited, so the sport-ing side of the event promised to go smoothly which it did. Unexpected factors concerned the extent to which the air around the Dead Sea area would soak up the heat in the middle of the day. In the days before the event the thermometers went up to 45C or so, but cooled down at the time of the actual rally. This prom-ised to be the first really hot rally a lot of the JWRC drivers would ever have experienced, certainly hotter than the Acropolis has been. Then there was the uncertainty about the effect of the negative elevation of the stages. First impression from the teams was that this was not as signifi-cant as going up to 3000 metres above sea level in Mexico. This was a coun-try where no pre-event testing was per-mitted. It was the same for everyone and gradually setups which suited the conditions were found. Not since 2003 had a World Rally Car been run in the country. The elevation of the stages varied from Minus 400 metres around the Dead Sea, up to nearly 700 metres on the first day. Stages fell into two quite distinct cat-egories, flat stages around the Dead Sea and hilly stages inland. The in-land stages had a three dimensional style, to a far greater degree than the up and down stages in Finland. Here the stages felt more like a ride in a theme park! The character of the countryside made this event a heaven for photographers, so long as they did not object to the lack of green-ery! All six WRC teams were present though none of the registered drivers had competed here before, which created a true level playing field. The only World Rally Car driver who knew the rally was Khalid Al Qassi mi in the non-championship BP Ford Abu Dhabi car, and he had only driven Group N cars here. "Level play-ing field?" That was very much the theory behind the construction of the Service Park alongside the Dead Sea, which only two weeks before the event was held had been part of a local mountain, while some 40% of the special stage route had until a year or two earlier had been goat tracks through the hills or not even tracks at all! A total of 55 cars were entered, including 16 of the 18 registered en-tries in the JWRC series, of which this was the second out of seven rounds. It was a rare opportunity for local enthusiasts to see and hear not only the World Rally Cars, but also the normally-aspirated cars run by JWRC competitors. This was the first appearance for many competitors in this year's series. There were no fewer than six Clio R3 cars, while KNAF driver Hans Weijs made the world championship debut of the C2 R2 Max. Incidentally, it was the first time cars running under the new Group R rules outnumbered the Super 1600 brigade in the JWRC. One dis-appointing factor was that only two drivers qualifying for the Rookies category were on the start line, the Italian Francesco Fanari who was also the only Rookie in Mexico, and Weijs. Considerable interest was created by the pre-event announcement that beleaguered FIA President Max Mosley would be attending the event by special invitation of the brother of the King, Prince Feisal, who was working with the organisation. Also present was Mohammed Bin Sulayem, the former driver and now President of the UAE Motorsport Federation, who has spoken openly in support of Mosley. Munchi's team patron Luis Perez Companc had to return home to Argentina urgently on business and his team had to ap-Daniel Sordo and Marc Marti, seen here in their Citroen C4, were the silver medal winners in the arid Jordanian desert.

THE PARTNERSHIP FOR JOHNSON VALLEY MAKES PRESENTATION AT THE REQUEST OF THE MARINES REGARDING POSSIBLE BASE EXPANSION INTO JOHNSON VALLEY The Partnership for Johnson Valley, Formed to Represent Outdoor Enthusiasts and Business Interests in the area, Seeks New Members to Help Support Continued Access in Johnson Valley Twentynine Palms, CA -The Partnership For Johnson Valley (PFJV) presented a PowerPoint brief to the Marine staff at the Twentynine Palms Marine Base. The brief was related to the military's proposed expansion into the 185,000 + acres of the Johnson Valley Open Access area currently managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The presentation was part of an ongoing effort by the Partnership to exchange information with the Marines, to show the impact that the proposed expansion would have on the diverse group of stakeholders in the open multiple use area. The affected stakeholders include, but are not limited to: land owners, Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts, geocachers, historical organizations, mineralogists, eques-trian groups, RC plane organizations, the film industry, other business groups, and youth groups. "The Partnership is reaching out to all of the stakeholders that could be impacted by the expansion of the Twentynine Palms Marine Base, "commented Harry Baker, Chairman of. PFJV" The original meeting with the military was orchestrated by Ed Waldheim, a past commissioner of the California OHV Commission, who represented OHV interests in Sacramento for 10 years. At the original meeting a coalition of groups were asked to participate to represent local stakeholders. They were subse-quently invited· back by the military to give a formal presentation of issues discussed. After the second military meeting, the coalition participants agreed to form a Partnership, and establish themselves as a non-profit 501(c) (3) under the California Trail Users Coalition. The nonprofit organization was formed to represent the interests of all affected stakeholders in the Johnson Valley proposed expansion. "Johnson Valley is critical to the film industry because it represents the largest open unrestricted area in California where filmmakers can shoot 360 degree desert scenes. Without Johnson Valley's diversity and ease of use, the Industry will simply leave California to film elsewhere, n said Sheri Davis, Director of the Inland Empire Film Commission. Ms. Davis adds, "Annually, Johnson Valley open-access represents 10, 000 California-based film industry jobs.n The leadership of PFJV has been cooperatively ·working with the military and the affected Stakeholders in an effort to explore alternatives to the proposed land expansion. The Partnership For Johnson Valley, is led by Harry Baker, Chairman with Mark Howlett as Executive Director, and Wayne Nosala as Secretary. To help with these efforts, the Partnership is asking for the support of other interested stakeholders in the area, and is seeking new members to join the Partnership For Johnson Valley. For those interested in assisting this effort, please contact Harry Baker or Mark Howlett at About The Partnership for Johnson Valley: Our Mission is to unite the many people who enjoy the diverse activities available in the multiple-access area of Johnson Valley. Our charter is to promote responsible recreation and the use of desert resources through conservation and education. The goal of the Partnership is to ensure public open-access to the area in the present, and for the future generations who Live, Work, and Recreate in Johnson Valley.

IIDUND 2 AT PRIMM Not stuff BY ]UDY SMITH Primm, NV: The second round of the Championship Off Road Racing (CORR) series landed on an unexpectedly hot weekend for May, with temperatures above 100 degrees baking the southern Nevada desert. The sun and its accompanying wind created a big headache for the CORR officials, who valiantly fought to keep the course wet enough to hold down the dust, but not so wet that it was slippery for the race cars. That proved to be a tough job. The layout is the same as it was last year, with grandstands running east to west. The course, a double loop, measuring .0954 of a mile, was on the north side of the stands, so spectators didn't ever have to face into the sun. The track had a long straight immediately in front of the stands, then a left turn into a straight with moguls, ending in a tight right hander. After another short straight there was a left hand turn and then a climb up onto a "table top" and a long;flying jump off that into the approach for Turn 4, the big sweeper leading into the front straight. A couple of bumps made the approach to the front straight a bit tricky, as they tended to kick some of the vehicles up onto their noses. CORR puts an additive into the soil, some kind of syrup, which is meant to hold down the dust. But it It was a win on Sunday for Johnny Greaves, he finished 14th on Sunday, he's seen here flying his Toyota to the checkered flag.

They stayed that way through Lap 5, and then Curt Geer passed Kraenbuhl for third place. By the sixth lap they were dealing with lapped cars, and then Lap 7 was the mandatory yellow flag. They didn't do any watering during this yellow, so it was just one lap long. On the restart they held their positions, but on the next lap Geer pushed a bit too hard before Turn 2, took a side-ways bounce and went over. He dropped back to the very rear of the pack. That moved Kraenbuhl back up to third. A couple of cars got stuck together at the beginning of Turn 2 on the next lap, and stayed there for about three laps while corner wo;kers tried to un-tangle them. Nothing much changed at the front after the ninth lap. Freeman took the win, Kennedy was second, Kraenbuhl was third .and Cory Boyer finished fourth. During his post-race interview Freeman said he'd "Had a great time!" But then, who wouldn't have, with four wins in four races so far for the season. Kennedy said he'd made a couple of adjustments since Saturday. It was, he said, a big battle for second place. Kraenbuhl · was pleased with his third, declaring that "we've been get-ting better every time." He and Free-man are both on the same team as Bryce Menzies, Bruce Fraley, Rob MacCachren and Larry Job. On Saturday the Pro Buggies came out next, and they were sur-prised to learn that the start order for them would not be as they quali-fied, but would be inverted. The top ten would flip flop, so Greg George and Dale Dondel, who'd worked hard to qualify first and second, found themselves starting in the fifth row. This was the "N' Main, with 22 starters. There were 12 more Pro Buggies, those who'd qualified slow-est, who would make up the "B" Main. This was also a surprise, but not as expected as the inversion of the top qualifiers. They'd talked about having A and B Mains at Pomona, but hadn't done it there. In the meanwhile, someone had de-cided that 22 Pro Buggies was a "full field" and the rest would be the B Main. It was a bit hard to under-stand the logic, since they'd started 33 Single Buggies with no apparent difficulties. They had a clean start, everyone getting off well except Doug Fortin who spun at the end of Turn 1 and found himselflast in line. Mike Por-ter took the lead, with Rob MacCachren, who'd started in the Dusty Times July 2008 Page 37

It was a difficult spot to flag, but had Vanilla (who has radio communication with the track personnel) seen the parked car, a person with a yellow flag could have been told to run over to the opposite of the track, and forward of the parked car, and that would have helped considerably. What will help, and will undoubtedly be there for the next Primm race, is a light on the wall back near the end of the turn, so that the racers get a little more warning of trouble ahead in that area·. As the race went on, with MacCachren firmly in front, George was trying to make his way up, but on the tenth lap, in Turn 2, he ran into Halliday, who slowed and then pulled out. But George was slowed also; and Hawley moved past into second. A lap later Hawley pulled out at the end ofT urn 1 and George was finally in second. Bu~ he had a long way to go to catch MacCachren. He couldn't get it done. At the finish it was MacCaci)ren, George and Dale Dondel, who'd moved up through the traffic, right along with George. On the podium MacCachren said, "I qualified sev-enth, which gave us an advantage by starting near the front." George, a little less cheerful, said, "I had my work cut out for me. I'm a little tired of looking at that 921..." Dondel said he'd started the race with only seven tearoffs, and they were gone by the second lap, so he'd had a hard time seeing. He's also in his first year racing here. On Saturday there was a Pro Buggy B Main. This was the race for the 12 who, for one reason or an-other, qualified at the end of the list. At the start Brady Helm got the hole shot, and one car spun in Turn 1, stalled and got left behind, while a couple of others got stuck together TTBEADLOCK !:ilMUI-ATED B.L VWBEADLOCK July 2008 l SX 1 2 VW SEAOLOCK NON 8EAOLCJCK S;fa:A.OU:::U:lK NON SEAPLOCI< in Turn 2. Helm stayed in front for another lap, but then Mike Dondel moved into the lead, as Scott Peterson moved steadily up through traffic. Peterson, usually very quick, had engine trouble during qualifying, so he. went and bought a junk yard motor and installed it, and was now hoping it would last. Dondel led for three laps, but then pulled out, his engine in trouble, and Peterson moved into the lead. Chuck Cheek was second now and Jay Halsey ran third. Somewhere along in here an ominous black cloud began to rise up from the front of the hotel. All the spectators could see from the stands was the cloud, and their at-tention was split between the race and the smoke and wondering if it was the hotel, or some poor soul's car. It turned out that"a car was in the process of burning to the ground in the front parking lot. On the eighth lap, the full course yellow was thrown, and when it re-started Peterson kept his lead, but Halsey got past Cheek and into the second spot. They stayed in that or-der the rest of the way. Peterson took the win, followed in by Halsey and · Cheek. On Sunday all the Pro Buggies ran together, with 27 cars on the track at once. They had an inverted start once again, and John Cooley went into the lead. They got cleanly through Turn 1, but had a crash in Turn 2 that left two of them stuck togethet. Corner workers got them apart fairly quickly this time. Mike Porter moved into the lead on the second lap, with Doug Fortin sec-ond and Cooley now third. By the third lap Rob Dusty Times

Taylor dropped to about 14th with his off-course excursion, and bits of body panels were flying as many of these guys bounced off the K-rail in Turn 2. On the second lap Greaves spun in Turn 2 and fell back to third, and Renezeder moved into the lead on the fourth lap, with LeDuc second and Rob MacCachren up to third. They ran in that order through the seventh lap, and then Laps 8 and 9 were mandatory yellow laps.

At this point, Ricky Johnson was just driving around, getting as many laps completed as possible. Mark Shoaff was smoking and pulled off course, and Evan Evans had slowed also. On the 17th lap Renezeder finally passed McGrath to take second, but it hadn't been easy. McGrath had fought long and hard to hold him off. On the white flag lap Todd Wyllie had flames under his truck, and he pulled out. The lead trucks stayed in position, and went on to finish: MacCachren, Renezeder and McGrath. Most of the rest of them were in shreds and tatters. McGrath said, during his post-race interview, "When the track got chopped up I got a little bit confused about which line I should take. Hats off to the guys that beat me." He's learning fast. There are three Pro Spec trucks·, the beginnings of a new class, which run at the same time as the Pro 2 trucks, but are scored separately. On Saturday Ross Hoek led the group through the tenth lap, but then Kevin Davis took over the lead for a while. But at the end, Hoek grabbed the lead again, and finished the race in front. On Sunday Brian Cotham led through the sixth lap, and then Davis went in front for Laps 7 through 12, but then Hoek rose to the top, and led to the end. That gave him a good weekend with wins on both days. On Saturday, the Pro Lite race followed the Pro 2 mayhem, and there were 26 starters lined up and rarin' to go. Once again they inverted the top eight starters.

n the Pro Spec Class, it was Ross Hoek all the way, he drove his Chevy to the Class win both days at Primm. Todd Arthur drove his UTV to a win on Saturday, a second spot on Sunday, he's seen here saving a bit on tire wear. second and third place when the mandatory yellow flag is thrown mid-way through the race, somewhat soft-ening the blow for the driver who's built up a big lead and loses it when the yellow kicks in. The Pro Lites got a good start, with Chad Hord taking the lead, fol-lowed by Rodrigo Ampudia and Jeff Kincaid, who'd taken a year off from CORR, but is back for this season. Kincaid has lost none of his skills in the interim, and was past Ampudia and in second place on the second lap. Chuck Dempsey spun at the en-trance to Turn 2, and was parked sideways for a bit. Aaron Daugherty had trouble with the same turn, and had a brief off course excursion. On the fifth lap everything changed. Hord's truck had begun to overheat, so he slowed drastically. Kincaid moved into the lead with Ampudia holding firm in second and Robert Naughton, last year's champ, in third. Leroy Loerwald parked his truck in Turn 2 and that was the end of his race. Dempsey developed a right rear flat, and at the front it was still Kincaid, Ampudia and Naughton, with Marty Hart now up to fourth and working on finding a way to move up. They threw the mandatory yellow on the seventh lap, and left it there for a total of three laps. By then it was Kincaid, Ampudia and Hart, who'd sneaked past Naughton just before the yellow came out. While they were dawdling around the track, the water trucks were out there wet-ting it down. Dempsey went in for a new tire, and Matt Barney developed a front flat and also went to the Hot Pit. On the restart Shannon Campbell rolled over, but no one hit him. Bobby Altamirano spun be-tween Turns 1 and 2, and David Reyes pulled off and parked in the infield berm. But up at the front it was look-ing normal, with Kincaid, Naughton and Ampudia now in that order. Hart was trying to get around a lapper and up onto Ampudia's bumper, but then he' ran into the wall in Turn 2. Reyes made a risky move and got himself back onto the course, narrowly avoiding a collision, and then, as the puddles dried a bit, things calmed down.

July 2008 Kincaid, Naughton and Ampudia held their positions. But Hord was just creeping around now, and Hart pulled out after Lap 13. Naughton was closing on Kincaid, but he didn't have much time left. He didn't get it done. Kincaid took the win, saying "We're back in winning form." Naughton was second and Ampudia was third. His dad, Rodrigo, cel-ebrated up in the stands, saying it was a big improvement over Pomona where he'd completed only seven laps for the weekend. When the Pro Lite trucks came back on Sunday 'there were only 24 of them, and one of those missing was Bryce Menzies whose neck was still hurting from the accident in Friday's practice. The course was dusty. Chad Hord jumped into the lead, with Ampudia in second and Casey Currie in third. But Currie had Naughton right behind him. Ampudia, Naughton and Currie ran in a tight clump. But when they got to the third lap Hord suddenly slowed and then pulled off. That left the lead in Ampudia's hands with Naughton and Currie chasing him, and Garit Wallace in fourth. Jose Reyes slid off the bank of Turn 2 and then didn't come around again. Ampudia and Naughton were very busy with one another and de-veloped a big lead. It was Currie in third, running pretty much by him-self, and then there was a group, with Wallace, Kincaid and Jeff Huseman fighting for position. Hord was now just drivipg around, staying out of the way of healthy trucks, just getting laps completed. This went on for another couple laps. The course was becoming dusty. The mandatory yellow went up on the seventh lap, and the water trucks came out. This time it was a two lap yellow. Reyes had got the black flag, and wasn't allowed back out on course, because he didn't have a spotter up in the stands. Currie had lost third place to Kincaid just as the yellow flew. So when the green came out again it was Ampudia, Naughton and Kincaid. Currie was fourth and Jeff Huseman was fifth. Naughton and Ampudia ran side by side to Turn 2, and Ampudia got the lead as they exited the turn. But then Naughton went past him in Turn 3, and continued to lead off the table top jump. Now it was Naughton the rest of the way. Three trucks got together in Turn 4, one of them Bruce Fraley. He was finished. Naughton and Ampudia went on, •with Ampudia trying everything he could think of to get past Naughton. He never got it done, and Naughton went on to take the win. Ampudia was second, and Kincaid held on to finish third. During their post race interviews Naughton said, "That was a fun race with Rodrigo, we didn't get into each other ... much." Ampudia agreed with him, and added that he'd had a rear flat at the end. Kincaid said he'd had "an inci-dent" with lapped traffic, and also said he'd been "biding my time-hop-ing that they'd tangle with each other." On Saturday the Pro 4 trucks rumbled onto the track with only 15 entries. Because of the inverted start, Adrian Cenni was in the front row, and he was in rare form. He went into the lead, and there was a lot of banging in the first turn, and by the time they'd gone through Turn 2 Travis Coyne had gone past him into the lead. Rick Huseman spun in Tum 2 and lost 12 positions, a rare error for him. Coyne and Cenni contin-ued to go at it hot and heavy, and by the third lap Cenni was in front, with Coyne second and Scott Douglas running third. Josh Baldwin was out, with a broken transmission. Then suddenly, Cenni, who'd been taking Tum 4 very wide, and using the cush-ion of dirt tossed up against the wall by the trucks, as if it were a banked turn, got a little too wide. His truck's forward motion stopped momen-tarily as he hit something, the truck's front end shot straight up into the air, wheels against the wall and fence and he took off, flying up the fence, into the catch fence, which turned him l,ick down (and to the left) so that as he came to ground he was facing forward on the turn, and damed ifhe didn't land squarely on all four wheels. He never missed a beat, jammed his foot on the throttle and charged down the front straight. The audience was ecstatic! (The Baldwins were predictably horrified. What if that catch fence hadn't held?) Although the wall along the outer edge of that turn was K-rail like all the others, and not meant to be used as a banked turn, it did its job, and it held. But Cenni had been told after doing it earlier, that he was to stop running on the wall. The contractor who'd built the wall hadn't intendecf it to be used that way, never though it would be used that way, and was concerned about it holding up. By now Douglas was up to sec-ond place and then he and Cenni had a good race, side by side going over the small jumps after Turn 2, and Douglas got the better of it, tak-ing over the lead on the fifth lap. Cenni was second, then dropped to sixth, and then went to the Hot Pits. Something had broken. Laps 7 and 8 were the mandatory yellow flag laps, and Tim Herbst also visited the Hot Pits, with a shock reservoir problem. Once going at full speed again, Douglas held on to the lead for an-other couple oflaps, and then John Greaves took over when Douglas de-veloped a fire on the left rear corner of his truck. At about that time, Troy Herbst tipped over onto his side in Turn 2, wheels out and cockpit jammed up against the K-raiL Every-one had been distracted by the Dou-glas fire, and it was a few moments before they saw Troy's predicament. Douglas pulled out and suddenly Herbst was also on fire. They got him upright, and big flames spurted from the air filter which had collected leak-ing fuel while the truck was on its side. Troy couldn't reach his extinguisher from his sideways position, and the flames were fierce enough to melt the tear-offs on his helmet, and singe his fingertips when he tried to reach the extinguisher. His brother, Ed, who was already out of the race, jogged across the track and jumped up to pull Troy from the truck. Fire extin-guishers then put the flames out, and the truck was towed away. Troy looked as if he'd had too much sun, Dusty Times

The weekend of racing was all over before nightfall on Sunday. There are no lights so they have to get it done by sunset. Jerry Whelchel thinks they could, and should race at night. He thinks the track wouldn't dry out so quickly, and they wouldn't have to keep watering in the middle of the races. Maybe some day they will have the opportunity to give it a try. From Primm the CORR group moves, grandstands and all, to Pomona and then Chula Vista, and then Pomona and Chula Vista again before returning to Pomona.

The ones that finished had to get medi-cal attention for delusional status, back aches, swollen shifter feet, bruised brake feet, carpel tunnel from the twisting of the throttle, dry mouth, and rocks pelted by faster riders. OUCH!!!! those Rocks HURT!!!! . As for the Motorcycle rid-ers, the tires that had 32psi of NITROGEN in them had NO FLATS. This was con-firmed as the 32psi tire pres-sure bikes stopped at Bajapits to get fuel. Who came up. with 32psi of Nitrogen? Some rid-ers told us they would rather bounce off rocks than to get a flat tire with less than 32 psi in tire. We are just glad that Bajapits had 32psi tire pressure racers to support. We will now support any new rider that runs with tires pumped up to 32psi. You will get a thumbs up approval from our Bajapits Captains. We at Baja Pits were fully aware through Radio conver-sations Weatherman reports of Psycho Trophy Truck driv-ers hitting Motorcycle racers. Some came into our pits with NEAR DEATH EXPERI-ENCE CRASHES. These "Hit and Runs" by "I am faster than YOU" drivers will be taken to the "High Council" to warrant charges be placed against the Hooligans that did this awful deed to the in-nocent Motorcycle riders. One Racer Friend who came all the way from Vir-ginia was not a happy racer after being hit by a Trophy Truck twice, the Quad got Busted up and it only takes a few seconds to let us Quad/ Bike Racers move over. For the All Mighty Trophy Truck Racers. Again what goes around, come around. Chupacabra will be watching Trophy Trucks closer now as they need to RACE SAFE or be at the mercy of Chupacabra. It seems Trophy Truck driv-ers are impatient to allow the motorcycle riders to get out of the way .. Again radio con-versation overheard revealed that Krump Industries has a LAZER device that slows the Trophy Trucks to a crawl for 30 seconds while the motor-cycle rider gets out of the way. It's work on as a jam-ming laser beam that slows the trophy truck to a crawl for 30 seconds. The device is mounted on the riders hel-met, pointed to the rear and will sense the Hot Shot Over zealous Trophy Truck Driver coming up from behind. Ac-tivated automatically, the la-ser beam induces Reverse AC Currents to the Trophy Truck Dusty Times and thus the truck slows to a crawl for 30 seconds. That leaves plenty of time for the bike rider to get off the race path. Both Racers can even wave to each other as they tell each other to "Have a nice Day". As this article goes to print, photos of the Hit and Run Trucks are being looked at by the "High Council" Some finishers have already been summoned to the coun-cil for depositions. As we also know the tracking device all races had to have mounted and operational for this race can record any sudden im-pacts. And o n e· o th er V E RY DISTIRBING site that was over heard on the radio was that a huge group in GREEN CLOTHED HUMANS possi-bly blocking the race couse that we think may have been with the SIERRA CLUB. As we have heard, The Sierra Club is backed by political henchmen that think races in the desert are not safe for ........ ... what, I am not sure. Beware of Green Clothed Humans. So as the race year contin-ues and we love our sport, keep it safe for all and let's figure out what happened to that missing truck. Sr Chupacabra also Sr chupacabras /tupa'kab-as/ , from Spanish chupar: to suck , cabra: goat; goat sucker) is a cryptid rumored to inhabit parts of the Ameri-cas. It is associated more re-cently with sightings of an al-legedly unknown animal in Puerto Rico (where these sightings were first reported), Mexico, and the United States, especially in the latter's Latin American com-munities. The name comes from the animal's reported habit of attacking and drink-ing the blood of livestock, es-pecially goats. Physical de-scriptions of the creature vary. Eyewitness sightings have been claimed as early as 1790 in Puerto Rico, and have since been reported as far north as Maine, and as far south as Chile. It is sup-posedly a heavy creature, the size of a small bear, with a row of spines reaching from the neck to the base of the tail. Most biologists and wild-life management officials view the Chupacabra as a well know participant of the Baja races kept a watchful eye on all that entered the San Felipe Baja region to race. -Some locals say this is good luck and some say Chupacabra causes misfor-tunes to some racers, Chupacabra has the ability to read ones mind over a dis-tance father than the race course cover.

More than 150 off-road enthusiasts, members of El Centro Chamber of Commerce, and the San Di-ego 4 Wheelers off-road club were in attendance as BFGoodrich Tires presented a grant to the club's president. The grant will be used to preserve the scenic trails and continue con-servation efforts for one of America's picture-perfect areas for off-roading. BFGoodrich Tires, working in conjunction with Tread Lightly!® and United Four Wheel Drive Associations (UFWDA), chose the Black Cat as one of the 2008 Outstanding Trails because of its challenging rock climbs, sandy hills and wild drop-offs. Though it may be quite challenging to the novice off-roader, its steep, rocky hill climb overlooking the Sand Dam does not disappoint and provides a challenge for all who choose to take it on. "With it's rocky obstacles and scenic sandy hills, the Black Cat trail at Superstition Mountain has the perfect combination of leveled obstacles for the skilled off-roader, making it a special choice for the 2008 Outstand-ing Trails program," said Gary Enterline, light truck product manager for BFGoodrich Tires. "As a key stakeholder in the world of off-roading, BFGoodrich Tires is delighted to team up with groups like the San Diego 4 Wheelers to ensure that off-road trails will continue to stay beautiful and safe for future visitors." The San Diego 4 Wheelers is one of the largest and oldest 4WD vehicle clubs in southern California. They are a non-profit, family oriented organiza-tion and support Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) recreation within the spirit of Tread Lightly. The club helps in the maintenance and preservation of existing 4WD OHV opportunities and the creation of new opportuni-ties where possible. The princi-pal function of the club is to pro-mote and participate in safe and responsible off-highway four wheel drive activities and to edu-cate the public on how to prop-erly use and conserve the land. "We are so honored to have Black Cat named as one of the 2008 Outstanding Trails," said Richard Jackson, president of San Diego 4 Wheelers. With its combination qf rock, sand, and steep canyons, Black Cat is just one of many trails that Supersti-tion has to offer. We are so pleased that this grant money can be used for the future of pre-serving Superstition Mountain and its many off-road trails."

In summarizing his written comments at the hearing, Mumm stated that "BRC recognizes the marked growth in the popularity of OHV recreation over the last several decades ... Motorized off-highway vehicles are also used to reach remote areas when taking part in other forms of recre-ational activity such as hunting, fishing, mountain-biking, and hiking ... Virtually every public land user is motorized at some point in their visits to federal lands and it is simply a question of where they depart from their vehicle." "We understand the popular-ity of OHV recreation presents challenges for land managers," Dusty Times

Mumm continued. "We point to active management for OHV rec-reation as the key to solving those challenges." "BRC urges this committee to support agency efforts to actively manage for OHV recreation. BRC also urges this committee to support fiscal appropriations and other funding mechanisms to help the federal agencies meet their recreation management ob-jectives," Mumm concluded. A number of leaders from other organizations were invited to speak at the hearing. Testimony from all sides of the OHV issue was heard. Ed Moreland, Vice President of Government Relations for the American Motorcyclist Associa-tion, was also on hand to pro-vide testimony to the committee. While it remains incumbent upon the agencies to provide a managed setting for recreation-the users to engage in the debate and help provide resources, edu-cation and expertise-it is the re-sponsibility of Congress to ensure that the agencies have sufficient resources to accomplish their . . ,, m1ss1on.

Video of the entire hearing, as well as additional writ-ten testimony and other items, is available on the Senate website ( Recreation Groups Respond To Threats To Motorized Recreation In Southern California Forests Lawsuit SACRAMENTO, CA -The California Association of Four Wheel Drive Clubs led a coalition of recre-ational access groups seeking to enter the latest lawsuit challenging motorized recre-ation in California. The lawsuit was filed by the Cali-fornia Attorney General' s Office on behalf of the Cali-fornia Resources A gency, the California Department Dusty Times of Forestry and Fire Protec-tion and the People of the State of California. It was filed against the U .S. Forest Service's "forest plans" for the Angeles, Los Padres, Clevel~nd and San Bernar-dino National Forests in southern California. The State contends the Forest Plans fail both to comply with various federal laws and to properly "har-monize" the State's input on "roadless area" management with the long-range federal planning vision. The Recreation Groups filed a motion to intervene on May 15th in U.S. District Court for the Northern Dis-trict of California (Case No. C 08-1185-MHP). The groups petitioning the court include the California Asso-ciation of Four Wheel Drive Clubs, American Motorcy-clist Association District 36, California Enduro Riders Association, and the BlueRibbon Coalition,. "Once again, the motor-ized recreation community have little choice but to re-spond to attempts to close treasured access to histori-cal roads in these 'roadle"ss' areas," said Don Spuhler, Cal4 President. "Appar-ently high levels of State leadership are dissatisfied by the prospect that these routes continu e in use de-spite the Clinton Roadless Rule and unprecedented Forest Service travel man-agement efforts. We believe it essential to defend this access and proper under-standing of the forest plan-ning process," Spuhler con-cluded. The Motion to Intervene is presently scheduled to be heard on June 30, 2008.

To allow sufficient space for us to display your vehicle in the most effec-tive manner it is suggested that the object you are advertising occupy no more than 7 5% of the space in the photograph. To achieve the highest quality in your photograph you should not provide Xerox copies, photo prints in Jen tliaa 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. ClasslRed ••• Some of the items advertised in these pages may not be le-gal for sale or use in all 50 states.
