Trail Notes ... VERY RED FACE - I've done some stupid things in my life but what I did with last months cover really takes the cake. I had scheduled Kyle LeDuc to be the top picture and Todd Craig to be the bottom picture. Well, LeDuc came out well but I put Todd Craig's brother on the cover in his 1600 car. I sincerely apologize to Todd Craig and his crew, I know how a Dusty Times cover shot is worth it's weight in gold and it doesn't come along too often. Please accept my sincere apology, that's all I can give you at this time. John Calvin · NORRA MExlcAN RALLY -The NORRA Mexican 1000 Rally has been temporarily delayed, thanks to the hurricane that hit the Baja peninsula. NORRA will provide hurricane relief assistance for the· immediate future. For questions contact Alex Plewniak at 619-572--7092 or TRICK LIGHTS -TrailGlow lighting provides HID lights to help guide the off road racer through the gloom. They also provide INERGY number panels, showing your car or truck number in a lighted form. TrailGlow also sponsors the Class 11 Desert Dingo Racing Team. This team is the official World Diabetes Day off road race team and they work with the International Diabetes Federation, helping to raise money for diabetes education and awareness programs. So, donate some bucks to the Diabetes Foundation and give TrailGlow a call for some very good lights. Kn.E LEDuc .ANolNTl!D 2009 KING OF OFF-ROAD RACING -Kyle LeDuc, Beaumont, Calif., captured his first BorgWarner Cup win at Crandon International Off-Road Raceway in the Traxxa TORC Series presented by AMSOIL Pro 4x4 racing action Sunday. LeDuc, 26-year-old son of 1998 BorgWarner Cup champ Curt LeDuc, Cherry Valley, Calif., won a record $43,500 for taking . the checkers in the pressure-(illed TORC Pro 4x4 showdown. He joins Helio Castroneves, 2009 IRL Indy 500 winner, as winners of the top·BorgWamer prizes in their respective Series. It was the first time in history a "father and son" combo are together on short course off-road racing's most prestigious prize. Curt also finished third in the race to podium with his son. Rick Huseman, Riverside, Calif., finished third, rounding out an all-California podium. The race - for valuable TORC Series points, the $100,000 BorgWarner sterling silver and 18 karat gold Cup, the$ 7,500 Cral}don BorgWarner "King" of Off-Road Racing" Championship Driver's Award and a minimum $40,000 cash·purse - was won handily by LeDuc's glossy black Rockstar Energy Drink - Tools..:_ Toyo Tires Ford F-150 race machine. The $40,000 -posted by Crandon in honor of its 40th Anniversary - was increased to $43,500 when LeDuc crossed the finishing line in a Built Ford Tough truck. Ford, the official truck of Crandon Raceway and of the TORC Series, annually pays a Racer Performance Award to racers win the Cup in their vehicles. LeDuc also won a $2,000 Miller Electric Company plasma cutter as part of his earnings. LeDuc was presented the traditional BorgWarner victory wreath by Erika Nielsen, director -marketing & public relations, BorgWarner Corporation. Also on hand in Victory Circle was BorgWamer's William "Skip" Cline, who presented the four foot high Cup, winner's purse check and special Crandon 40th anniversary BorgWarner Cup ring. Cline retired this year and was honored in a pre-race ceremony. "This is big, awesome, just huge" gushed the new champion. "It's big for my team, for Rockstar, Makita, Toyo, my family, every single sponsor and teammate I have" said an elated LeDuc. "To join my dad on the Cup is incredible. And to win with the youngest crew chief in the sport is special too,". he said. TORC televised the rac~ live on ABC-TV. The start of the race was marred by a multi-truck accident in Crandon's notorious Forest County Potawatomi tum one. LeDuc came out of the restart in first position and then dominated the entire event in a powerful display of savvy driving and full tilt horsepower. "There was a lot of excitement in this TORC Pro 4x4 race -something for everybody," said Doug Davis, Crandon promoter. "We ran 22 races all weekend without a major mishap. But you put the country's top Pro 4x4 racers, the pressure of live ABC TV, big money, and a chance to be immortalized on the Crandon BorgWarner Cup together in one pot, and you are bound to see something extraordinary go down," he said. The young LeDuc has carved out a place in history in off-road racing. He now reigns as the BorgWarner champion until the annual TORC off-road World Championships next year at the famous "Big House" track. 14m SCORE TERRmLE's PRIMM 300 -Here is the current entry list by class of the cars and trucks that will be copmpeting.

The racing is always outstanding, but it's the fans that make it an experience teams never forget. "Because the fans have treated us so well for so long, I feel compelled to send out this release explaining why we can't be in Crandon this year, and to let everyone know that I truly wish I could be there," commented multi-time World Champion, "Crandon Carl" Renezeder. "As we put our original 2009 schedule together, we intended to put Labor Day Crandon on that schedule," Renezeder continued. "However, Travis Coyne's experience in Texas at the firstTORC race of the season was a clear ' indication that we wouldn't be allowed to run our trucks at a TORC event; we would run into the same sponsorship constraints. We were disappointed as we realized early in the year that Crandon most likely wasn't going to be a possibility for us." Then, a few weeks ago Renezeder received a call on his cell phone from the Crandon community and the track asking if there was anything they could do to help the team come to the race. They wanted Renezeder there to help celebrate forty years of racing and hoped to highlight some of his achievements there over the last ten years. "I felt honored to receive the invitation," Renezeder humbly admitted. "My more Trail Notes ,np•1•47 Page 7

~llllJi~ VEGAS TO RENO McMillins overall By Judy Smith Photos: Trackside Photo Andy and Scott McMillin had a really great race,they took the Class 1400 win and they were the overall winner as well in their Ford. · · The father and son team of Andy and Scott McMillin paired their considerable talents in August and drove their Ford Trick Truck to the win at the Best in the Desert's highly touted "Vegas to Reno, The Long Way" event in the time of 17:47:52. While it actually started in Beatty and finished in Dayton, it's traditionally been given the Vegas to Reno name since its inception in 1982 as one of Walt Lott's events. Even Lott's race finished in Dayton. A few years ago the BITD had a series of multi-day events which, while they didn't attract huge numbers of racers, were well liked by those who entered. The most recent was the McMillin 1000, which was held in 2005. That was actually a four-day event, starting in Beatty and finishing in Tonopah on Thursday, then starting and finishing in Tonopah on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Contestants' families and crew were stashed in a massive campground near the Jonopah high school, and the start and finish were fairly close by each day. It worked well for the racers, but was clearly stressful and difficult for the BITD staff and volunteers. This event was similar ·in many ways. The contingency, tech inspection, start-position determining Time Trials and mandatory drivers' meeting took place in Henderson. Then it all moved north, where a huge fenced compound had been dozed smooth at the side of an east/west dirt road just south of Beatty. Beginning in the late afternoon the crews and families started to arrive, in modern caravans featuring 40 foot motorhomes, toy haulers, pickups, flat car trailers, biker box vans and every possible variation of chase vehicles. The BITD had asked for a count of motorhomes (and their length) so they'd be able to plan accordingly for parking. At some point they had reportedly reached a census of more than 600 motorhomes. That seems a gross overstatement, but there were certainly more than we'd ever seen in one place before. Many of them were rentals and clearly being piloted by nervous drivers. (There aren't enough motels in the area to service such a crowd, thus the high number of motorhomes.) It was an awesome sight. Until 2 a.m. they streamed into the compound and at five a.m. the bikers started lining up, for their very early start. Cars and trucks didn't take off until 9:30, and the seemingly endless parade of support vehicles, motorhomes, campers, chase trucks and the like headed north to Tonopah. Although there were huge numbers of chase and support vehicles, the total entry ~--~~~~"""'~~Pf?'~ of car/ truck racers was down from the previous two events of this season. There were just 159 cars and trucks, while there'd been 261 at Parker and 211 at Primm. There did seem to be lots and lots of bikes and quads however. Vehicles on the highway traversed only 94 miles to reach Tonopah. But that day the course spent about 20 miles on the east side of Highway 95 and then crossed the pavement and did some serious zigzagging to make it 332 miles for the racers. They finished across the street from the McDonald's in Tonopah. Meantime, all those motorhomes, which had had to drive only 94 miles, got to Tonopah early in the . day. The planned parking area for the race teams was overwhelmed. "Overflow" parking filled up quickly also, and -later arriving teams wanered around looking for space to park. The way the three-day format worked was· a bit complex. As each driver finished his race for the day, he pul,led into a "free zone". Within this zone he was free to check over his vehicle and radio to his crew a list of things that needed fixing. · He could not make any repairs, nor could any pit person come out tq work on the car. He could stay in the free zone as long as he wished. This was important, because if a team had more than one vehicle, Kevin Colan, with help from the Flores clan was the big winner in the 1500 (Class 1) contest, seen here in the big Bunderson. they'd need to finish with one before the other came into the pits. There was also the chance that the vehicle might need a part that the crew didn't have. In that case, they could scout around to beg or borrow the necessary items. They could even drive to the parts store, or another town if necessary. The weary driver could eat and drink and talk on his phone or radio, but couldn't do anything else. Once the race . vehicle was cool enough to work on and the crew was set up, the driver would "check out" of the free zone. He was given a piece of paper with his car number and . his departure time on it, and he had a time limit for getting to the pit area. If he wandered away, or stopped for some reason, and went over time, he'd receive a penalty. When he entered the pit area he was timed again, and then his crew had an hour to make the necessary repairs. It's fairly amazing what a crew can do in an hour if they know in advance what they need and can be all set up. If they got the car sorted out within the hour, the driver then took it to impound, going back through the time clock, and having his departure time from the pits recorded. The car was then left in the impound area for the night. If the crew used more than an hour to make repairs the extra time, plus some penalty was added to the driver's time for the day, potentially costing him positions. Each morning they lined up in the order in which they'd finished the night before: not in their actual corrected-time position relative to one another. Bikes and quads and UTVs started early each day, and the cars would go off the line about 9 a.m. If a team had a · disaster like losing a transmission, and didn't have time to repair it on course, they could "take a DNF" for the day, and then make the necessary repairs in the pits. There was some way of recording their time also, and each team could have one "DNF day" during the event, and still be considered a finisher. No one seemed to be entirely certain how it worked, but quite a few teams took advantage of it. On the second day i:he racers covered 367 miles between Tonopah and Hawthorne, which was .a 103 mile cruise for the team vehicles on the highway. The racers actually began the day headed south, went down below Goldfield, crossed 95, then came back north to Tonopah and then did some serious wandering through the desert to the outskirts of Hawthorne. The third day did a similar thing, in that they started out headed south and went nearly all the way back to Tonopah, before turning northward again, and going through Gabbs, Rawhide, Top Gun, and then westward.and into the Rodeo grounds on the outskirts of Dayton. The racers drove 297 miles that day, to the 109 miles for the motorhomes. , Chase teams were another matter, because they had to do a lot of backtracking and charging off into the desert, it was often difficult for them to get to their assigned pit on time. Logistically, it was difficult for the BITD folks also. Each day the course marking team was out marking the next day's course, staying ahead, but not far enough ahead to let any racers scope it out in advance. The Beatty start line arch had to be deflated and moved to become the Tonopah finish line, and then it stayed in place as the start for the next morning, but as the last vehicle left it was unceremoniously deflated an'd moved on to the finish line at Hawthorne. Once again, it overnighted, but then had to be moved to Dayton to become the final finish. Check point personnel had long days, and then moved on to do it again and again. Road crossing teams did the same, and radio teams and radio relay folks also had to keep up with the northward run. It must have been a real challenge to find the people necessary to man such an undertaking. Bryce Menzies and Larry Job were the Class 10 winners, they're seen here . hustling their Jimco to the north. McRae Glass and friends hustled the Class 8 Ford to the class win, they're seen here chewing up the soft stuff on the way . The communities in the area loved it. Motels and hotels filled up, convenience stores were full of customers, gas stations were busy, fast food emporiums had long lines, and all in the heat o_f summer. And, as opposed to the years when the course was a one-day affair, this time the racers spent a night each in Beatty, Tonopah and Hawthorne.

Scott McMillin, Andy's dad, was driving on Friday. B. J. Baldwin started right behind him, a minute and 32 seconds back on corrected time in his Chevy. But they were flagged off one minute apart. Kevin Colan and T. J. Flores, who'd finished first in Class 1500, started third on Friday, and Kory Halopoff who replaced Harley Letner in their Class 1500 car, started fourth. Behind them it was the Voss family Trick Truck, then Gary Weyhrich in his 1500 car, then Danny Anderson in Pat Dean's Bunderson. Behind Anderson Kory Scheeler started in his Ford Trick Truck. He's bought Wayne Lugo's truck to replace his which burnt to ashes at the April Primm event.

Co-driver Dave Turner was hopeful they'd get it ready for Ftiday's start. The working pit area at Tonopah was a zoo, with pit vehicles parked in all directions and cars pulled in willy-nilly. Some racers finishing their stint used precious minutes of their permitted hour wandering around looking for their pit if the crew hadn't thought to send a member over to lead him to it. Sam Berri's crew, which is a group of volunteers, replaced a C.V. boot, welded a rear arm and performed routine maintenance and had Berri's car off to the impound in 54 minutes.

Harley Letner, in his Class 1 Tatum, finished about fourth, reporting that he'd lost his brakes at Mile 30.

This day was the hardest -------------------'-'-----------for the chase vehicles, because some of the pits were way off the highway. If a team got to Pit 5 before their race vehicle they'd have to cover so many miles to get to Pit 6 or Pit 7 that the race car would beat them there. It made for some difficult logistics. And it was still hot. (Ed. Note: We wrote this story two weeks after the race was over, and the "official" three-day results had not yet been computed, so we have used the positions listed on the unofficial results. Please be aware there may be differences once things are made official.) The first four-wheeled vehicle to finish was the Herbst Trick Truck, with Troy still at the wheel. He reported a perfect day, but said he'd lost the clutch which "slowed us down a little bit." This was just the third race for this new truck, and he reported no flats this day. When asked how he liked the three-day event, he said; "I love the format." He'd passed McMillin when he pulled over early for some reason. We asked him about catching up with the UTVs, which started at the tail end of the bike/ quad group and he said, "The Polaris guys were all watching their mirrors." When Herbst's times for the three days were totaled up, he had finished in second place, about four minutes behind the winning team. McMillin finished a few moments later. He said he'd had a flat tire when he came out of a turn and it ".popped." They couldn't get the jack out, and had to dig out their spare, which was a little floor jack. This meant some time digging under the big 39" tire to get it free of the ground. They said they'd been wishing for their old 37 inch tires while they were doing that. McMillin said he'd run in Flores's dust for ..; the final 60 miles or so. He also said that this was his third day of driving, and "it takes a lot out of you." Andy's dad, Scott, said he liked the three-day format, and went on to say, "We had to work hard every day, had good barbecues every night, everybody worked hard." After about 15 minutes of suspense, the timing and scoring people announced that the McMillins had the three-day victory. Rick D. Johnson also finished in front of McMillin by a few moments. He said it had been an "uneventful" day, and he'd passed Andy while he was changing a flat. Johnson had "no flats -no nothing" on Saturday. He said the truck ran solid, and never got hot. Asked how he liked the three-day format, he said, "It's long - everybody seemed to like it - it's a good event." His three day total gave him third place in The Herbst boys, Tim, Troy and Ed were the silver medal Sam Berri, always a hard competitor in his Jimco,took second In the Class 7300 contest it was Kellon Walch pushing his Ford winners in Ciass 1400, they were less than four minutes out place honors in the 1500 Class, he was about 30 minutes in for all it was worth, Kellon was quite happy with his win. of the class win. _ar_r_ea_r_s_a_t_t_h_e_f._la-=g'-.--------------'----Page 10 October 2009 Dusty Times J

f. It was a nice win in Class 8100 for Greg Foutz, Greg and his Ford had a couple of hours on his competition when the checkers flew. the Trick Truck division. B.J. Baldwin said that on Saturday he'd wanted "to have a really good time." He had, he said "entertained everybody -did donuts in my fuel stop." He reported that Day One had gone as planned, but on Day Two he'd lost the trans, so he'd apparently just decided to enjoy Day Three. He did say that his team "liked the three-day format a lot." Jesse Jones and Alan Pflueger earned fifth place in the Trick Truck class in their Ford. Jones said they worked on the brakes every night. They "never got them really fixed, and after about 100 miles they went completely away." He said they'd spent about an hour working.on them. Jones also said he'd been "showing everyone my talent and ran out," and rolled his truck in his pit. Pflueger drove only Friday, Jones drove Thursday and Saturday. He said they "had a good time." Mark McMillin finished sixth in his new Trick Truck. This was his first race in a Trick Truck and his first words at the end of Saturday were; "Now this is fun!" On Thursday he'd said, "This is like cheating!" Brian Ewalt did some of the driving, and he'd made an error at one point that cost them about 20 minutes. He'd pulled out in someone else's dust and got the truck high centered in a hole he couldn't see. He and navigator, Cameron Parrish, had to get out the shoyel and go to work. They used sticks Dusty Times and brush and filled up the hole so they could drive out. Mark Weyhrich had a good day on Saturday and finished in a time that would have given him a Saturday-only fifth place, but because of that DNF on Thursday, his Trick Truck final finish position is 11th. He said his "biggest hurdle" had been getting around the Protrucks, and he'd hit a rock passing them and flattened a tire, and they all went by again. Mark said he "struggled through the dust" all the way. He and Gary really like the three-day format, and he says he's the one who asked Casey to make this event into a three-day race. Will Staats and Robbie Pierce had mixed results this race. After replacing the trans on Thursday night they'd had a good run Friday, and Saturday looked pretty good until ten miles before the finish, Will lost the motor. As Will's daughter, Emily, who rides with him, put it, "We had a fatal motor something_ happen." To that point their day had been good, marred only by three flat tires. After they sat there a while, along came Rob MacCachren in his Class 8000 Ford Raptor and he towed them the rest of the way in. Emily was relieved. She said she hated the idea of running 989 miles of a 999 mile long race and then just being parked out there. They're listed as seventh. In eighth place it was the team of Michael Voudouris and Jeff Geiser. Voudouris had had plug Karl Scanlon, seen here nicely airborne, flew his car to the Class 3000 win in the very competitive wire problems on Thursday and an axle had fallen out, making it a long day. Friday, with Geiser driving, they'd had no problems, but he'd collected some tire marks on his door, a souvenir of passing a 1600 car very closely. Geiser said it had been "dusty dusty." On Saturday, with Voudouris back at the wheel, they got a good finish, but all he could say was that "something's wrong with the motor, or the timing's off." In ninth place it was the team of Greg Nunley and Tom Carr, in a Ford. Their weekend was truly a mix of the good and the bad. They finished on Thursday, but when they went to line up on Friday the Ford wouldn't run. By the time they got it working they were late to the start. This team had a helicopter and at least one of their wives was riding in it, along with some other folks, and a person taking videos. On Friday, when they stopped in a pit for some routine work, the helicopter hovered so the photographer could get some good shots. Something went wrong and the helicopter fell to the ground. The passenger in · the race truck watched in horror. But, miraculously, everyone in the 'copter was able to get up and, they said, "walk away." Some of them must have been hobbling, because they had an assortment of broken bones and bad bruises, but no life-threatening injuries. The whole bunch were taken away to the hospital, and as they October 2009 went they assured the race team that they'd be okay, and the truck was to continue with the race. They'd lost about an hour and a half with the incident, but they went on. On Saturday they said "it was rough." They hit a rock in the dust and flattened a tire and lost their power steering. And to add to their problems, the power steering fluid "caught on fire." Tom Carr did the driving · on Friday and Saturday. Nunley drove on Thursday. Tenth place went to Ryan and Richard Voss in a Ford. Ryan drove Thursday and Saturday and Richard, the dad, drove on Friday. He broke the valve cover studs, and then snapped the rear end housing in half. They had a DNF that day. Thursday and Saturday their times were good, and they even had no flat tires on Saturday. They said there will be a new truck for the next race. Kory Scheeler and his new Ford finished only one day, and it was the same for Tracy Rubio, Todd Jergensen, Ron Whitton and Steve Strobel. Another four Trick Trucks didn't even get that first day done. In the 1500 class, after running well for two days, T. J. Flores ·and Kevin Colan followed through with a third good day in their Bunderson. T. J. drove the entire distance on Thursday, but on Friday and Saturday they each did half. On Saturday Colan said he "drove steady" on his section, with no problems. They finished fourth overall, and first in Class 1500, with a three day time of 18:05:42. The second place finisher was Berri, who said he'd gone off a turn and flattened a tire on the last day. He said it was "the flat from hell." The car fell off the jack and "I had to dig holes. It seemed like I was down forever." And then he finished on a right rear that was almost flat. When asked how he liked these three-day events, he said, "It's hard with a volunteer crew, to get the whole crew to take off for that length of time. But it's fun!" His total time was 18:35:55. Third place went to Dennis and Richard Boyle in an HMS. Dennis drove on Thursday and Friday, with no major problems, and Richard drove on Saturday. He had a good day, but had two flats, "one right after another." He said he'd changed one but drove ten miles on the next one. Their three-day time was 20: 17:20. In fourth place it was Mike Bilek and Steve Jangaard, in an HMS. They both drove each day, and on Thursday and Friday had nothing more serious than flats. On Saturday they lost reverse gear, and they had only one flat, but the jack didn't work properly. Jangaard, who drove the second half on Saturday, thought it was a very dusty day. Their three-day time was 20:54:33. Fifth place went to Vince Galewick who did all the driving all three days in his DuneBuggy. He said he'd had two flats each on Thursday and Friday, but Saturday had been a clean day. It was, he said, "a great race - amazing." His total time was 21:01:09. In sixth it was Pat Dean and Danny Anderson in a Bunderson. Pat drove Thursday, Danny drove Saturday and those were good days, a_nd they'd definitely been in contention for the overall win. But Day 3 wasn't so hot. Said Pat, "I gave it away." At Mile 10 he "lost it" in a set of rollers, and ripped the front arm off the car. He lost about four hours with repairs. He was not a happy camper. Their total time added up to 21:52:51. Seventh place went to Tim Continued on page 12 Page 11

Wes Harbor, Bill Lott and Gaylord Rodman, in a Skeeter Built car were the next finishers. On Thursday Harbor, who owns the car (and also owns the VORRA series up north) and Lott had no problems and no flats. On Friday Rodman and Lott drove and they again had no problems and no flats.

He got away before we could talk to him at the finish line. In eighth it was Chris Kemp and Dino Crescentini in a Jimco. Kemp did all the driving on Thursday and Friday. He had one flat each day, but he had belt and pulley problems on Friday, and it was a very long day. That day he said he drove 120 miles with the tensioner "zip tied tight." He said "It was a rough day." On Saturday he finished in a good time, but he left without telling his story. His total time was 23:49:04. Ninth place went to Tony Smiley and Rickie Gaunt in a Tatum. Smiley drove on Thur,Sday which was an o.k. day . . Gaunt drove all of Friday's miles, and he'd had a flat and had to have the header welded up, which cost him an hour. On Saturday, Smiley did the driving, and he'd had to replace an alternator at Mile 6. He said they used up five alternators in the three days. He also replaced a power steering pump, servo and rack and'Pinion. The "hard part was finding the right parts", said Smiley, "Some good people helped us out." He'd driven about 50 miles with no ower steering. Their total time was 24:03:08.

MacCachren drove the second half of Day 1 and Day 3 and the start and end of Day 2. Olliges did the rest. As he was coming to the finish MacCachren came upon the deceased Staats Trick Truck and towed it in the last ten miles. Ted Hunnicutt and Mike Horner had a good time on Thursday, and looked as if they'd give Glass a battle with their Toyota. But they took a DNF on Friday, and then didn't finish on Saturday either. The Protruck win went to Ryan and Steve Staats in their Ford. They said that on Thursday a wheel flew off after a tire change and messed up the studs. It cost them about 20 minutes. But then on Friday they had no problems and no flats, but the steering was "getting loose" late in the Dusty Times day.· Ryan, who is the dad ·of this team, and Steve, his son, split the driving every day. Saturday was "good" - they had a flat about nine miles before the finish, and it took them about four minutes to make the change. They said they "love the three-day Vegas to Reno bit. It's a good time for everyone." In second it was probably Troy Vest in a Chevy. He drove all the way. On Thursday he had just one flat and called it an "awesome day." Friday he was reluctant to turn it off because he thought it wouldn't restart. On Saturday he said "a Trick Truck landed on top of us and broke our shock!" {Weyhrich's truck.) He finished about 25 minutes behind the Staats team. In third it was Aaron Guthrie who did all the driving in his Ford. He rolled it on Thursday and had a "few flats", and said he'd had "traffic and dust." On Friday he apparently had another fairly clean day, and cinched the third place. Dave Mason finished next. He had a really good time on Thursday in his Ford, but Friday was a long day for him, with several hours of down time. Then on Saturday things went well again. Rick Backus shared the driving chores with Mason, and they took fourth place. Rob Reinertson, Ford, had a pretty good day on Thursday, but on Friday he broke an axle and an A-arm and ran out of time. He got stuck because of the axle. That night they worked ·on the truck until about 5:30 a.m., but it was on six cylinders at the start. It turned out it had a broken plug, and they replaced it to solve that problem. They also got stuck in a sand wash. Reinertson drove all the way, all three days. The only other Pro Truck, Rob Clouser in the Dodge, had two DNF days. In Class 7200 the first driver over the line was David Caspino in his Ford. He ran at the front of the pack on Thursday and Friday, and was within a minute of the fast time on Saturday, to take the victory by almost exactly two hours. He said "We took our time -didn't make any mistakes -had no down time." In second place it was Al Hogan, another Ford, and Dane Cardone who shared the driving. They were running some 35" BFG test tires on the rear of the truck, and like them really well. Pat Bell rode with Cardone, and said, "They got me and Dane out of the mothballs." It's been a while since we'd seen them at a race. Third was Marc Burnett in a Ford. He'd been stuck in the silt once and had some transmission problems, so he replaced the trans on Friday night. On Saturday the truck was "awesome", and the replacement trans didn't overheat at all and the truck ran great for the first time. The fourth place truck, the Ford of Bill Kunz, had a pretty good day on Thursday, but then took a DNF on Friday when it "endoed into a roll" out of Pit 6. Greg Jones, who was driving at the time, went off to the hospital where he was diagnosed with a broke C3 vertebra. Bill Kunz drove the truck on Friday, and he and Jones had split the driving on Thursday. Jones, wearing a neck brace, was at the finish line to greet the truck when it arrived. In fifth it was Jason Rodriguez, Ford, who was towed into the "free zone" on Friday, some time after 11 p.m. Rodriguez did all the driving and he said he had "lots of problems." He had steering problems, he holed a transmission oil pan, he had no brakes for Friday and Saturday, he had two holes in his radiator, alternator problems and fan belt trouble.

Gary drove on Thursday, Derek Dixon drove on Friday, and that day they became a DNF when their starter froze up. On Saturday "they split the-driving, and at the finish they said they were "Glad to be here." Seventh place went to Tim Burke, Steven Burke, Randy Burke and Rory L'Hommedieu in a Chevy. Thursday wasn't bad, but on Friday they vapor locked and had a DNF. Saturday was another good day. In eighth place it. was Shawn Giordano, Dave Dinsmore and Doug Siewert in a Ford. They all drove at one time or another. They said they "had a little incident o·n the first day, and DNF'd." It seems that Giordano did a barrel rot!, and broke the steering box and bent both the lower and upper control arms. The team was up until 3:30 a.m. fixing the truck. They had much better luck on Friday and Saturday, and finished both days. Ninth went to Dallas Luttrell and Bill Billington in a Toyota. They said they "switched back and forth for three days." They took ·a DNF on Friday when the . rear end broke, but had a good day on Saturday. Ryan Ingham and Dan White, in a Ford, are credited with tenth place, but they had a DNF on Friday, and thus we didn't get to talk to them. · In Class 1100, Jake, Scott and Josh Jones and James Beek, in a Foddrill, went home with first place.

Thursday's loosened skid pan had cost them only 15 or 20 minutes they said. On Saturday Josh and Jake did the driving. They had a good day with no flats and no stops. Jake· said he "never went off course." .Though when he got behind an 8 truck in the silt, "it was tough." They won by about a half hour. Second went to Lee Banning, Jr. and Sr., in a Foddrill. Lee, Jr: was in at the finish. He said it was a "great course - we _had a great time - glad to finally be in Reno." He said they'd broken the steering rack and fi~ed it on this last day. They'd also spent some time working on it overnight. Then they went off to a barbecue dinner. In third it was Wes Stephens and John McCormack in a Chenowth.

In second place it was Kevin and Brian Smith, brothers who raced 20 years ago and have just come back to racing after a hiatus while they raised their families. They're driving a Mirage. On Thursday Brian had tipped it over .in the last three milt;s, and they'd lost their CV boots. On Friday they had a sticky throttle cable. But they said Saturday was their "best and fastest" day. (Ir was also the shortest.) They said there was "lots of fast stuff' and called it a great course, but did mention that the final 30 miles was "complete rock." They'd been running up pretty far and found starting up among Trick Truck and Class 1500 cars was "pretty challenging." Third in this class was the team of Curt Geer and Daniel Folts in a Lothringer. On Thursday Geer started and Folts finished and they had no problems. Friday Geer had a flat at Mile 30, then worked his way back up to second place and got another flat. Folts had no problems. Saturday was "not a good day." Geer start\:sf and Folts finished. But they broke the front end at Mile 2, and spent about ten minutes in the pit for repairs. Fourth went to Tony Modica and Raul Solano. Thursday Modica got stuck for a half hour or more. And on Friday, Solano finished, driving his last two miles or so on a left rear flat. On Saturday things "went great". They had one flat tire, but nothing else. They said it was "silty and dusty", and also said it was "difficult when you have Trick Trucks starting behind you. But they were very courteous." In fifth it was the team of Max and Jake Hanberg and Jeff Mower in a Mirage. They say it's an old Mirage. Max and Jake drove on Thursday, and on Friday Max started and Mower finished. They had a front flat, and after changing it got back out in front by Pit 4.

They had no mechanical trouble. On Saturday Jake drove all the way. He also rolled the car, completely over, and then "muscled it back on its wheels", losing only about ten minutes. In sixth it was Paul Kurz and Robert Alatorre in a Penhall. Kurz started on Thursday and bent a tie rod by hitting a Protruck. Alatorre was the second driver that day. On Friday Kurz started again and rolled the car before he got to Pit 1. Alatorre wasn't sure, but thinks he may have rolled it again later on. Alatorre got in at Pit 5 to go to the finish, and he had a flat and lost two 'alternator belts. When he had the flat his jack failed and the folks in the #2020 car stopped to help. Nice guys. On Saturday Alatorre started and Kurz finished. He said that when he rolled on Friday it was because he hit the rear tire of a Protruck he was passing. He said he'd gone over "about ten times." Seventh went to Peter and William Janss and Lenny Loftin all from Texas, in a Bullitt chassis. Peter drove on Day 1, Bill drove on Day 2 and Loftin was the driver on Day 3. They said they'd had one rollover and two flats and had helped pull the "Bad Attitude car out of a stuck." Their time was about 45 minutes behind sixth place. Pat Nirschl and Troy Messer, in a Bunderson, were eighth. They split the driving each day. On Friday they said they'd had a "lot of problems." They'd broken a spark plug, been stuck on a hill, high centered, and then stuck on another hill, had two flats and rebuilt a shock. On Saturday the saga continued. They'd tipped the car on its side, got it back on its wheels, added oil and went on. They blew out two shocks, lost two fan belts, rejetted the carb, got lost in the silt and had a couple of flats. When asked how they liked the format Messer said, "You've gotta save something." In ninth it was Glen Davidson · and Justin Arnold in a Penhall.

In third it was the team of Christian Hammarskjold, Michele Shapiro and Glen Plake. Shapiro drove the final section, and Hammarskjold reportedly bent the bumper on a stuck car. He rode to the finish with Shapiro. They'd had a DNF day on Friday. Class 7100 had six starters and the winner was Rick Doetsch and Scott Martinez in a Ford. Martinez rolled the truck two separate times on Friday. He announced that "Troy Herbst is my hero -he pulled me over." That was the second time. The other time some BITD folks helped him. They had no mechanical problems that day he said, but on Thursday, when he drove all the way, they'd had vapor lock: On Saturday Doetsch and Martinez split the driving evenly. They had no flats but their ring and pinion were "gone" at the end of the day, and they'd been adding gear oil for about half the trip. Mike McCarthy and Greg Crowther piloted their Ford to second place, but not without drama. McCarthy drove all day Thursday and Crowther navigated. Then on Friday, McCarthy crashed and "got hurt" and Crowther drove the rest of the race. They were about 50 minutes behind first place. No one else in the class finished.

Kevin Sacs/as and his crew plowed through the soft stuff and took the win in the Class 4400 battle, seen here plowin' tiilt. In Class 3100 there· were three entries, and the Rod Hall/ Emily Miller Hummer took the victory. Miller drove all the way. She lost her four-wheel-drive on Thursday and it turned into a long day, "limping in" in front drive. Overnight they made repairs and had a great run on Friday. On Saturday, knowing they started in the lead, "we were making sure we didn't lose it." She had no flats. Mike Falkosky finished second in his Ford. He had a really bad day on Thursday, because, since he runs on pump gas, he'd bought some at a low price gas station, and it malfunctioned. But they didn't know that was the problem and spent a lot of time fiddling with other things. Then, on Friday Falkosky hit a "really big rock" and broke two leaf springs. They had only one spare. They replaced one, and decided they'd just "limp around" the rest of the way. But Mike's energetic dad, Pat, hustled to Hawthorne and found someone who had an old Explorer and bought the springs. Then he didn't make it back to the next pit on time, so he kept going and finally met up with Mike and got the replacement done. Each time they replaced a spring it cost them about a half hour. Saturday the truck ran well, and they finished about an hour and a half behind Miller. In Class 4100 there were two entries, but only Chad Hall seems to have started, in his Hummer. He said he thought he had a "bad part" on Thursday, but had a "good time" on Friday, which he said was "very dusty and pretty fast." On Saturday he had one flat right off the start, but then ran "pretty much trouble free." Chad also said he's "getting too old for this - I want a Class 1 ride." Class 4400 was for those rock racers, and they didn't have an easy time with this long event. Seven of the original 11 were DNFs. The BITD started them in front of the Sportsman class, assuming that they would not be too awfully fast this time, since it was their first time out.

\!C RALLY OF FINLAND Hirvonen/Ford Victory B:y Martin Holmes Life was back to normal in the spiritual home of high speed gravel rallying, Finland. The ISC announcing Rally Finland will stay in the championship every year for the next five years, and more immediately, Mikko Hirvonen became a new Finn to win his country's rally. He held the lead for three whole days, slowly but surely, pulling away from Sebastien ·Loeb, whose effective hopes of victory . were dashed by a puncture on Saturday. Jari-Matti Latvala had the pressures of the world on his shoulders, knowing that no excuse would ever be accepted for errors and he eventually passed Dani Sordo into a safe third place. There were smiles for everyone in Jyvaskyla. Spectators were enthralled at the splendid drive for two days by the Formula 1 driver Kimi Raikkonen, and by fans of the Czech driver Martin Prokop, who took the FIA's World Junior rally title on the penultimate round of the 2009 JWRC. Only three WRC events remain this year and the races for the other titles are hotting up. Round 9 of the 2009 World Rally Championship, Neste Oil Rally Finland, needs little introduction to rally fans, being one of onl three rallies which have featured in the WRC calendar every year since the series started in 1973, and the only such rally run from the-2 0same headquarters town all the time. The stages used on the Finnish rally are the fastest of the current championship as well as being some of the smoothest gravel roads anywhere. Where the stage roads were held on less well based surfaces, the roads were used only once not twice, to reduce damage. Many of the stages are traditional favourites but there were some variations, notably the _classic fast Ouninpohja was not held and instead another old favourite was revived, Myhinpaa, with spectacular jumps, was run twice in quick succession on the final day. With only three events to follow after Finland in this year's world championship, Finland had a major significance for the teams. Although their drivers had won the last three 20rallies, and Ford's Mikko Hirvonen was now one point in front of Citroen's Sebastien Loeb, the BP Ford team started the event 17 points behind Citroen Total. In a rally where previous experience was critical, only one driver started with a victory on this event behind them and Martin Prokop was the big winner in the JWRC portion of the rally, here cornering hard in his Citroen C2 S1600.

He eased his pace and escaped ·problems this time. So at the end of the first loop Mikko led Sebastien by 3.6 seconds, with Dani 20Sordo and Latvala following. Mikko, "Yes, we decided to drive flat out. But the big question was how much we could afford to cut the corners.

These four drivers were leaving the opposition far behind. Next up was Mads Ostberg, nearly 40 seconds behind after a total of five stages, despite persistent steering misalignment on this Subaru Impreza S14. His teammate Jari Ketomaa was lying eighth in his older Impreza S 12b, extremely happy with his personal. suspension tuning work, but he suffered several times from the engine stalling. Petter Solberg was lying second overall after stage three but then he punctured 100 metres from the end of stage four, slid off the road and damaged his Citroen Xsara, and was forced to stop for the rest of the day as the car was too badly damaged to continue. On stage two Evgeniy Novikov went off the road and although he managed to start stage three he was forced to stop after just two kilometres. Other drivers were also struggling. Federico Villagra, "It is so difficult to find the right speed, and so difficult to know where I can cut the corners." Sebastien Ogier was lying a promising ninth, "It is so different in a World Rally Car compared with the C2 R2 Max which we last drove on this event!" Khalid Al Qassimi, "I'm struggling. We missed Poland. We've had no chance to go testing." At the head of the rally a classic "1000 Lakes" battle was developing between Hirvonen and Loeb. During the afternoon stages Hirvonen increased his lead from 3.6 seconds -to 4.0 .. G seconds, at a rate of exactly 0.1 second per stage, "In a couple of bends we went fractionally wide," said Hirvonen, "otherwise the lead might have been even greater!" Jari-Matti was lying fourth, ten seconds behind Sordo, looking forward to Saturday's stages, which he knew better. Matti Rantanen quietly and effectively held fifth place, · 20well exceeding his remarkable seventh place last year, ahead of the Norwegians Henning Solberg and Mads Ostberg, the latter suffering from a strange damper problem which kept deteriorating his performance. Jari Ketomaa was eighth, despite a curious loss of power which suddenly cured itself, ahead of Ogier who lost time when he spun on a narrow stretch of road. Martin Prokop went straight into the lead of the JWRC category, ahead of Kalle Pinomaki who had overheating brakes and no time to bleed them before the following stage, and Michal Kosciuszko who had spongy brakes. Aaron Burkart started the day badly but struggled onwards. Kevin Abbring was struggling with his pacenotes, "The roads are muc h faster than you would imagine. All my notes are far too slow. Meanwhile his KNAF teammate Hans Weijs stopped before the final stage of the first loop with a radiator leak. Faster than aI).y of the JWRC drivers was Urmo Aava in his Honda Type R R3. Prokop's S1600 Citroen gradually edged further ahead of Pinomaki's Clio R3 during the second loop, but the talk of the category were the worsening road conditions during the afternoon, as the morning's stages were repeated. Both Prokop and Pinomaki said it was a miracle they had no problems, but Kosciuszko had a double puncture. Luca Griotti, Yoann Bonato and Mark Wallenwein also punctured, while Simone Bertolotti went off the road after a jump and.Jost a minute waiting forspectators to help-him regain the road. Abbring lost a lot of time "driving around the rocks" when he punctured and had to change the suspension unit on the stage. Aava's two-wheel domination ended when the suspension broke and he had to change a lower suspension arm in the middle of a stage. In Group N the Skoda of Juho Hanninen was generally the quickest, but on stage four Anton Alen's Fiat made best time but then on stage five the car developed an odd handling problem. Third in the category was Janne Tuohino's Peugeot in front of Patrik Flodin's Subaru, which also had a handling problem. ,Alen' s great challenge was his fellow Fiat driver Kimi Raikkonen, who was enjoying hims'elf. His codriver, Kaj Lindstrom, said: "My greatest problem is to stop Kimi trying too hard. When he really eased off he was quicker than ever!" Kimi's progress was impressive. On the four stages of the first loop he was 24th, 21st, 19th, and then 16th quickest overall. Ott Tanak retired his Subaru with a broken suspension ball joint after suffering steering arm problems. Leading the PSD drivers was Martin Semerad. Jarkko Nikara was quickest on the first five stages of the rally, but firstly was delayed by nine minutes (incurring a 90 second penalty) having a gearbox changed after it split its casing, then another ten minutes before stage five , when there wa s an underbonnet fire caused by burning differential oil. Mark Tapper was going well, considering he had recently broken his arm, "I cannot use the handbrake, but the team rigged up a system to make that easier for me!" Hanninen continued to hold his lead during the second loop, and was nearly a minute ahead of Alen's Fiat which was again being slowed by handling troubles, thought to be differential related, while Raikkonen was closing on third placed Tuohino's Peugeot, just 13.3 seconds behind. In the PSD contingent, Nikara had a clear afternoon as did Nicos Thomas, but Jon Williams was forced to go carefully when he lost his sumpguard. The early leader Semerad stopped with engine oil loss and Tapper stopped after hi tting a rock and having suspension failure. Later, on the Friday evening, the cars were sent out from the headquarters in Jyvaskyla down to the Killeri superspecial where Loeb once again was the quickest, reducing Hirvonen's lead from 4.0 seconds to 3.3. Raikkonen damaged the wheel alignment on his Fiat. Day 2 - 9 Stages - Gravel -166.87kms The weather turned. Steady drizzle overnight had completely changed the whole aspect not only of Jyvaskyla, a clean and attractive lakeside city, the rain turning it into a dull grey domain, but also the challenge of the rally. Running first car on the road now offered a great advantage. Evgeniy Novikov, Petter Solberg, Hans=2 0Weijs and Urmo Aava all rejoined the· activities as did the PSD drivers Martin Semerad and Mark Tapper. Latvala was unwell overnight but safely made it through the morning, "running on adrenalin", as codriver Miikka Anttila believed! "He looked absolutely awful before the first stage this morning." First running Hirvonen observed, "The conditions have been perfect for me! Because of the rain the surfaces have constantly good grip, it really has been enjoyable!" Sebastien Loeb noticed .the difference. He arrived at the end of the third stage of the first loop (stage 13) declaring he could never have driven faster -and in that stage alone he fell another four seconds behind the Finn. By the first of the two mid day service halts. Loe b was 10.9 seconds adrift. And despite his condition Latvala was slowly catching third · placed Dani Sordo: From being 16.8 seconds down overnight, Latvala was now 8.3 seconds behind.

Hennig seen here nicely airborne in his Subaru lmpreza. finished 30th overall in Finland, well off the pace. suspension, having one stage earlier passed Matti Rantanen into fifth place. The battles for the rest of the leader board were close. On stage 12 Mads Osberg lost time with an overshoot and Ketomaa punctured. The second time through the loop of three stages was very rough, especially the third stage in the series. Petter Solberg suffered a broken damper top mounting, just like happened in Acropolis, and did not attempt to carry on. Hirvonen esfged slightly ,further ahead on the first two stages, then on stage 15 Sebastien had a tyre pull off its beading and lost some air, and Hirvonen's lead at the end of the second loop was now 28.0s. Sordo then had a slow puncture on stage 16, enough for him to lose his third place and drop behind Latvala. Ostberg struggled on with damper problems but the team finally discovered the trouble and prepared to rectify this at the end of the day. Ogier was chasing Ostberg hard, and before the penultimate stage of the day he was only 2.3 seconds behind. Matthew Wilson had a worrying moment when the electronics of his car cut out after a heavy landing but, as happened to La tvala in Argentina, he was able to reboot the system and carry on. Novikov had his third accident in the total of seven stages he had driven on this rally, this time shown on live television from a helicopter which was tracking his car. The pressure in the race for the lead was now off. The third loop had been tricky, using stages for the first time which proved to be surprisingly slippery. The top teams however were playing the split times game, watcl;i.irig the opposition and checking nobody was suddenly speeding up. Latvala confessed to slightly nervous moments on each of the last three stages of the day, but extended his lead over Sordo to 10.5 seconds. Al Qassimi had a ne.rvous moment when he 20went off on to rocks beside the road, but just managed to drive back to the stage again. Villagra went off and back on again as well. Ostberg lost his battle with Ogier, and then went off the road on the final stage of the day. Martin Prokop was walking away with the JWRC, and indeed the two-wheel drive categories, even with Aava back in action. Kalle Pinomaki broke a brake pipe and although he kept second place this allowed Prokop to extend his lead to over a half minute. Burkart and Kosciuszko were third and fourth, the latter delayed on stage 13 with engine misfiring. Conditions were getting rough for the JWRC Page 20 competitors. Kosciuszko got stuck on the start line on stage 16. Prokop was still pushing hard, "Pinomaki is not so ·far behind, and if I ease off I am still just as likely to make an error!" Burkart had a rear-wheel puncture. Abbring had to stop for the day with a broken radiator, when he went off the road after a heavy landing. Griotti went off the road and broke his rear subframe. In the third loop of stages Burkart found the handling had deteriorated and this allowed his Suzuki teammate Kosciuszko to pass .him into third place in the category. Bertolotti lost a lot of time when a driveshaft failed. In Group N Juho Hanninen continued to win stages and was more than a minute in front of Anton Alen. At the early morning ·service the re wasn't enough time for Raikkonen's wheel alignment to be corrected and he was now delayed by a broken rear anti roll bar. Janne Tuohino retired his Peugeot with clutch failure. Bieltvedt retired his Subaru Impreza N 14 with oil loss after a heavy landing. As Hanninen continued on his unchallenged way the Fiats were in trouble. Alen firstly had a broken sumpguard and then a broken anti roll bar, while Raikkonen had a broken rear shock absorber and also potentially serious engine troubles. Flodin had slipped down to fourth, after delays with a bent steering arm on his Subaru. The main feature of the afternoon for the Group N drivers was the exit of Raikkonen, at a left hander shortly after the start of stage 19, his car rolling twice before joining Mads Ostberg's already stranded Subaru. Alen's car was now running' well again, though well behind Hanninen, while Flodin was third best orthodox Group N car. There was gloom, however, in the PSD driver camp. Only one car, that of the South African Jon Williams, was still active. Semerad had brake problems but managed to continue then three of them, including Semerad, stopped with engine troubles, caused it seemed by a nasty jump at the Himos stage which resulted in the sumpguards impacting on the sumps, while Nicos Thomas went off the road. Day 3 - 4 Stages - Gravel -47.44kms · Overnight the images of Raikkonen's accident appeared and the Ferrari driver explained what ended his run. "I took a little bit too wide line on the corner. I thought it would be alright but unfortunately there were too many rocks on the outside of the bend. Anyway, I did not think I would be able to finish the rally because we had too many problems with the engine, but it was good fun. Nobody got hurt so it did not matter." Not so much was expected to happen on the final day, much of the fight had gone. Conrad Rautenbach was cruising along in ninth place when he crashed on the penultimate stage and the Group N leader, Juho · Hanninen, crept into he top ten overall placings to beat Federico Villagra on t o the leader board by just 3.2 seconds. In fact Ogier missed fifth place by just 0.3 seconds! Stages 21 and 22 were the same stages, but when a medical problem happened to a later runner during stage 21, it ·was stage 22 that was interrupted, so the JWRC cars and privateer drivers did not tackle the second run through the Myhinpaa stage. Tuohino finished the rally running under Supe-Rally rules but did not put his car into pare ferme so was excluded, and the t o t a l number of finishers was 60.

, ____ .:-I FALLON 250 AT NIGHT Harwell Takes Class 1 And overall Text & Photos: Troy Robinson It was a good race for Shannon Harwell, he took the Class 1 honors as well as the overall win, seen here kickin' up dust. Shannon Harwell outlasted the field to capture the overall win in the Fallon 250 at night, Vorra's mid season desert race. Shannon with his wife as co driver came from behind in his "sand car" but was able to keep moving throughout the night for the victory, his first win in his first season with Vorra. Race weekend in Fallon started with 105+ degree heat that greeted racers from as far away as South Dakota. Yes, the Crazy Indians brought their class 8 racer the long trek from the Midwest to race with Vorra. With the fait of the Bonneville off-road ser.ies in jeopardy some of their heavy metal racers decided to race this summer series. While the results were good for one Gary Hull taking the win in Group T, others were not so fortunate. Richard Cresinger (852) and the Crazy Indians Monte Tibbetts (850) each blew transmissions taking them out of the race early. Also making a long trek from Ventura Ca was the Motion Tire guys of Frank Hines. They dusted off their older for sale Lothringer and made the trip up. Hosting tech and registration as well as their 40th anniversary party was the Stockman's Casino who closed their parking lot and greeted The Most Sought After Fuel in Off-Road Racing Today!

This went on all afternoon and into the evening all the while fellow racer Kenny Ott brought a "low boy" flat bed to transport racecars from the pits into town for the festivities. Three at a time he hauled racecars, quads and UTV's the 20 miles trip free of charge. This was a huge convenience for racers that don't have a truck and trailer to haul their car. Post tech was the drawing and welcoming party. As soon as the party was over everyone headed out to the pits and for a few hours the pit area was a bustling cruise town as almost all racers were out testing and adjusting the headlights on their car getting ready for the twilight affair the next night. Some of us decided to get a last night pre-run lap in. Racecourse for this year was the reverse of last with just one change. The course would be 41-miles long starting with a 5 mile technical, -rocky sand wash to check point 1 where the course would turn south .. and run nearly dead straight down the "gas line" road for 17 miles. The gas line starts with about 5 miles of deep sand that robs all cars of horsepower and is brutal on transmissions. After the sand come the rocky rollers, some "straight over crest" but not all. Only those that pre-..; run can for sure gun it and be confident that the road doesn't turn. Check point 2 and turn north again up 4-mile canyon: a twisty graded road that leads into checkpoint 3. Then it's into the straight and narrow: a dusty section with large boulders on either side of the course, stray off here and it's for sure a flat. This leads racers on to the new section, the alkali flats that aren't so dry. Then be careful of the pipeline on the side of the road that carries 170-degree water to the power plant. Finally a 3 mile wide graded road into the pits and into the finish line. Saturday morning was last minute tech and registration with the drivers meeting at 1pm. in the blazing hot sun. It was a good race for Jim Fuhs, he drove his pickup to the Class 7 win, he's seen here early in the race. Dusty Times

Quads were off the line first at 2pm with a 3-hour time limit and the cars were off the line at 6pm with an 8-hour time limit. The Nevadan's have a saying that if you don't like the weather, stick around 30 minutes it will change. Well it did as the heat turned to strong winds and but the time the cars started the clouds came in and it even started raining on most of the track even though it wasn't enough to create mud or even keep the dust down. This allowed for much cooler race weather throughout the night. Quads would start at 2pm in the blazing sun for their 2-lap run that was led off by Ryan Stoffer (43). He would have a flat on the first lap and that moved Brad Falin ( 104) to the top spot. Falin would hold on for lap 2 for the pro quad win. Stoffer would finish 2:44 behind Falin. Travis Rowley (821) had a long first lap but the fastest 2nd lap and finished in 3rd. In amateur quad 7 entered and Cliff Wilson (431) took the lead from the pole starting spot and never looked back. He beat out Stephen Pappas (13) who finished 2nd. Kevin Davidson (89) forgot his gloves and rod the first lap without them. e had huge blisters on his hands and was more than 4 minutes off the pace. He handed the quad over to Mike Koenig who made a pass on the 2nd lap and finished the day in 3rd. Justin Peetz (4), Hudson Phillips (43x) and Ryan Souza (2) rounded out the finishers in the class. The bantam quads raced 1 lap and had 3 of the 4 finish. The winner by 2:01 was Craig McCoy (9). He beat out Jordan Bender (208) and Steven Daniels (715). Class 1 's started first at 6pm with 10 in class. First off the line was Shannon Harwell (132). Pre race favorite Sam Berri (149) started in 6th position and made a quick lap, fastest of the day at 4 2: 20 to take the track lead after the first lap. Scary moment of the day, Rick Massie (24) in his Rescue Racing trophy truck was running 2nd after lap 1 but on the gas line road in the deep sand, the co-driver noted the transmission temperature had shot up and there was a fire on board. They quickly pulled over and by now the fire was into the cab. Driver Rick had the fumes overcome him before he could get his seat belts, radio, pumper hose and head and neck restraint sorted and was slow getting Dusty Times out of the car. The co-driver got out and saw this, ran around to the driver's side and helped Rick out of the truck. They used their extinguishers and those of fellow racers that stopped to help them out. But it was shovels and sand from mother earth that finally smothered the blaze. Not all was lost but the interior is gone. October 2009 At the mid race point the running order was Berri with a 22-minute lead over Harwell, Dave Morton (125) and Frank Hines (1594). Berri would hold on to the lead until the 5th of 6 laps when he put the car on it's side just past check point 2 and blocked the course. He would be there long enough to drop him to Continued on page 39 Page 37

Sam Berri was really hustling along, but, it wasn't his day, Sam JC Elrod comes out of the right hander at high speed, unfortunately Jake Povey's front end looks a little askew, no matter, Jake went finished first off the podium in the Class 1 contest. for Elrod, he had to settle for a fourth place finish in Class 10. on to take a fourth place finish in the Group T battle. the first lap but the deep sand on the gas line toasted his transmission and caught fire too taking him out on lap 2. Mike Koenig (T603) broke a steering link just 1 mile from the start but got it fixed and was moving again nearly a lap down. Jake Povey (T503) had his ranger moving along and was 2nd after 1 lap followed by Joel Swanson (T635), Gary Hull (813), Bruce Fields (858) and Tim Schrader (T689). . By mid-race Swanson was in the lead followed by Fields, Povey, Hull and Ben Phillips (6043). Going into the last lap Fields was in the lead with 20 minutes over Hull followed by Phillips, Povey, Koenig and Schrader. Fields would have a last lap flat that allowed Hull to close in. At the finish line Fields was there first followed by Hull, then Povey, Phillips and Koenig. After the math was done the corrected time had the finish order Hull, Fields, Phillips, Povey and Koenig. Only 12:45 separated the top 5 trucks in the class! Topping the class 7 field was James Fuhs (730) who brought out a new truck for the flag to flag finish and Brad Falin uses a bit of body English as he races to the Pro Quad win at the Fallon 250 race, a very hot day in July. Cliff Wilson was the gold medal winner in the Amateur Quad race, he's seen here with the power cranked. up. Dusty Times win in class. Fuhs rolled his primary truck in the April race and built this truck in just a few weeks. Fuhs would be the only finisher in the class. KC Keller (738) had electrical gremlins from the last race that carried over to Fallon. He had two of the longest laps of the day at over 4 hours on lap 2. The team eventually found a short and got going again but timed out after 4 laps . The largest class was the Sportsman class with 15 entered. Scoring first lap times under an hour for the top spots were Brian Baggett (24x), Scott Wooden (349), Kevin Yoder (34), Bill Hermant (1591), and Terry Shelton (81). By lap , 2 of their 5-lap race Yoder was in the lead over Hermant and Rufus Wheeler (1018). Yoder would maintain the lead all night ~ven with a stop to help out Sam Berri who had rolled just past checkpoint 2. Brian Baggett worked his way up to 2nd but dripped out after 4 laps. At the finish line Yoder was the winner in his rock buggy with a 28:29 lead over Terry Shelton. Mike McCleary (3) finished a respectable 3rd followed by the baja bug of Chris Sullivan (535) who managed to keep all the wheels and drive train in the car this time. Scott Wooden (349), Alex Hall (918), and Derek Boarman (1211) rounded out 5th thru 7th and the final finishers in the class for the night. Sean Cook (1930) entered the lone UTV in class.

more TRAIL NOTES from page 7 guys immediately got to the task of prepping the trucks, we booked hotel rooms, held flights and decided it was the right thing to do to make a couple of phone calls to the TORC decision-makers to make sure they were ok with us racing with them at this one event." Renezeder personally placed the calls to make sure the team would be welcome. Unfortunately, after a few days of phone calls, it became clear.that the sponsor rules enforced at the Texas event would hold true at Crandon as well. "The foundation Team Renezeder has built throughout the years is our commitment and dedication to our sponsors, so to ask us to censor any of our sponsors is not an option nor is it healthy for the future of our sport," explained Renezeder. "This is why we won't be able to race at Crandon this year." Renezeder went on to say, "I sincerely hope that someday in the future, we'll be able to race again at the fabled Crandon International Off-Road Raceway. I'm extremely proud to have been part of the last decade of racing there and of my team's accomplishments on the rrack. The fans are amazing and the atmosphere is indescribable. I wish the fans, the staff and all the racers a safe, successful, enjoyable 40th anniversary."
