TRIii Notes .•. ~ 6.0.R.E. POWDER PuFF - A hearty well done to all the entrants of the .lYI.Powder Puff Race last October. Just heard from Ron Mathews at M.O.R.E. and he stated that Cedars-Sinai received $118,000 into their Breast Cancer Fund. This is monies received for ½ the entry fee and personal contributions to the fund through the Powder Puff Race. So, as racers, you should all congratulate yourselves for a job well done, no matter where you finished in the race. Many, many thanks to all of you for your generosity. THEY GoT HITCHED -The former Lucy Solono joined A. "Guy" Savedra in .A. Holy Matrimony at The Little Chapel of the West in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 29th 2008. After the ceremony, the couple and friends celebrated the union at the South Point Hotel and Casino by dancing the night away. Lucy Solono is the sister of the 5/ 1600 race Champion Rulo Solono and Guy Savedra is the son of ARTS Tech Director and 5/1600 owner/driver Art Savedra of AGS racing. The couple met at the MORE Chili Cook-Off Race in September of 2006. The new couple will reside in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dusty Times wishes the happy couple a long and healthy union. A TTENTION CLASS 9 RACERS -The "BIG" Class 9 race for 2009 is in the ~orks. The race date and location will be determined by the cooperation of several Calif/Nevada promoters and also by the Class 9 drivers input. The organizer is looking to get a 40 car entry and create the largest Class 9 race of 2009. Send an e-mail to to be a part of the process and receive status updates as the preparation continues. BFG AND VOLKSWAGEN -BFGoodrich Tires and Volkswagen of America announced today the launch of a new first-of-its-kind online experience designed around bringing the captivating sights, sounds and real-time information of the 41st annual SCORE Baja 1000 to everyone. Created for this year's SCORE Baja 1000 as part of an innovative relationship between BFGoodrich Tires and Volkswagen of America and combined with partnerships through SPOT Tracker, Aura 360, and, the new online experience includes GPS tracking for all drivers in the SCORE Trophy-Truck, 1, 8, Stock Mini and 5/ 1600 C lasses in the race, plus live and streaming video. "This new SCORE Baja 1000 Live online experience will raise the bar for the SCORE Baja 1000," said Tom Jupena, marketing communications manager for BFGoodrich Tires. "The experience we have gained at Dakar, the Jetta TDI Cup and other racing events provides us the platform to meet the unique challenges of Baja, "said Clark Campbell, Motorsports Manager for Volkswagen of America. "Volkswagen has a long history of bringing innovation and competition to Baja since its earliest days. This year we are proud to bring clean diesel power to the desert, marking the first time that a turbo-diesel powered vehicle will compete head-to-head with gasoline-powered SCORE Trophy-Truck rivals." BFGoodrich Tires' interactive agency of record, The Martin Agency, led the development of the Web site in cooperation with Volkswagen of America's agency, Crispin Porter+ Bogusky, under the direction of senior level marketing teams from BFGoodrich Tires and Volkswagen of America's Motorsports Division. Volkswagen is the original four-wheeled Baja off-road machine. More than 40 years and hundreds of class and overall wins later, Volkswagen still plays a major role in SCORE International Off-Road racing and the SCORE Baja 1000. This year Volkswagen is leading the revolution in clean diesel technology, entering the SCORE Trophy-Truck class with a special-built TDI-powered Touareg. °DNAL FLAG -We were sorry to hear of the passing of Cecil Wright, long ago J: off road racers and former owner of The Wright Place, from the 1960's through the 1990's. Funeral services were held at the Little Chapel Of The Roses in Bonita, California on December 5th. Donations can be made to the Lewy Dementia Association, P.O. Box 451429, Atlanta, GA 31145 or on line at or to Chula Vista Presbyterian Church, 940 Hilltop Drive, Chula Vista, CA 9[911. Cecil supplied the off road industry with many products for many years and he will be sorely missed by all who had contact with him. Rest In Peace, Cecil. r'f'>YOTA MILEsTONE AWARDS - "Toyota is proud to honor the world's best .A. desert racing drivers," said Les Unger, national motorsports manager at Toyota Motor Sales, U'5.A. "For over two decades, we have had the privilege of presenting the SCORE Toyota Milestone Awards to the toughest racers on the planet." Rod Hall was joined on the stage by his son Chad Hall who won a SCORE Toyota Milestone this year in the Stock Full class in a Hummer H3Alpha. This marks the first time in the history of the award that a father and son have both won the award. Besides Chad Hall, the other drivers winning their first SCORE Toyota Milestone Awards this season are: Robbie Pierce, Chuck Dempsey, B.J. Richardson, Cory Boyer, Adam Pfankuch, Kevin Carr, Marcos Nunez, Heidi Steele and Ramon Fernandez. Steele is the first female driver to have ever earned this award. A CCIDENTS Do HAPPEN - Joey Westhoff & David Norris were in the #1691 .l"l,,WesthoffMotorsports 1600 and running hard. On their first lap of the small loop they flew into a big ditch at about 50 MPH stopping the car immediately, the two called for an ambulance instantly. We would like to thank everyone involved in helping us get Joey & David out of the racecar quickly and safely. Thanks to Lee Perfect & Craig who arranged for the life flight, the San Bernadina Fire Department who heard the call from the Flying J and responded quickly, Wendy & Tina (the MORE medics), Brother Bob, Michael, Ray, Mike, Uncle Terry, Brian, Jimmy Hook and everyone else who helped out. I would like to thank my dad, who kept me strong throughout the whole day and Ashley who drove us to the hospital and got us there in one piece. We would also like to thank Jim & Amy at MORE. I'm sure there are more as there were tons of people who came out to help. The boys are in a lot of pain but are at home recovering. David fractured his L1 & L2 vertebrae and Joey seems to be clear of any fractures. The boys are in good spirits and happy that the injuries weren't any worse. We all believe that the safety restraints truly saved their lives. Joey was wearing a Hans device and David an R3, and they were both belted into their Mastercraft 3G's. Without this kind of safety the injuries definitely would have been worse. Once again thanks to everyone! 2008 SCORE Desert Series Awards -BFGoodrich Tires, a staple of desert racers world-wide, captured two major honors Saturday as SCORE International officially concluded the five-race 2008 SCORE Desert Series with the annual SCORE Awards Night at Terrible's Resort in Primm, Nev. Among the others earning SCORE Off-Roadsman of the Year awards were American Honda motorcycles, Volkswagen of America and drivers Rob MacCachren and Lee Banning. The evening was also a celebration of35 years of SCORE championship desert racing.

BFG Tires, the official tire of SCORE for 33 years was honored as both the 2008 SCORE Entry Sponsor and the 2008 SCORE Pit Support Team of the year. The SCORE Off-Roadsman awards are determined by the vote of more than 2,500 members of Los Angeles-based SCORE lnternational. Among the other honorees were the top point leaders from the 2008 SCORE Desert Series. It was the ninth time BFG Tires has been voted the top Entry Sponsor and 22nd time it has been honored as the premier Pit Support team. Las Vegas' Rob MacCachren, the versatile driver who has eight career SCORE class point titles and was recently selected for the fourth time to the MRWBA All-America motorsports team, was honored as the 2008 SCORE Person of the Year. He currently splits driving with Mark Post on Post's Riviera Racing team in the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck division. "Rob MacCachren embodies the true spirit and talent of SCORE desert racers and this selection by his peers reflects all that he has meant for so many years to our sport," said Fish. American Honda was voted SCORE Motorcycle Manufacturer of the Year for the 20th time and the 12th consecutive year. Volkswagen of America was selected the SCORE Contingency Company of the Year for the first time, testimony to the massive $100,000 contingency posting the company had during the 2008 SCORE Desert Series. During the SCORE Awards, 2008' Class 1-2/1600 point champion Adam Pfankuch, received the $20,000 VW bonus as driver of the VW-powered vehicle that finished the highest in the SCORE Overall Point standings. Pfankuch finished third in the SCORE Overall points for the 2008 season. Among the special awards presented by SCORE was a special appreciation recognition to the government of Baja California for all of its assistance to helping SCORE produce three highly successful races in B:.ija California, Mexico, in 2008. Receiving the award was Oscar Escobedo, the Secretary ofTourism for Baja California. Las Vegas' B.J. Richardson was honored as both the 2008 SCORE Overall point champion and unlimited Class 1 titlist. His consistency, which included three seconds, one 10th and one ninth, earned him his first SCORE Overall point championship. He races in a Chevy-powered Bunderson open-wheel desert race .car for John Gaughan's Las Vegas Dissemination team. Banning Motorsports, Laveen, Ariz., picked up two prestigious awards in front of the nearly 500 SCORE desert racers, crews and families at the SCORE Awards Night. Lee Banning, who was driver of record for the second-place team in SCORE Lite, was voted the 2008 Suzuki SCORE Rookie of the Year and Andy McGaw was selected as the 2008 SCORE Mechanic of the Year. Banning received his choice of a Suzuki ATV or Suzuki Motorcycle as a special prize for his recognition. "BFGoodrich Tires has supported all of desert racing, especially SCORE, for 33 years," said Fish, "To win the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 once is a major feat, but to capture the world's most prestigious desert race 20 straight years (1986-2005) is unbelievable. Their grassroots support of desert racers is unparalleled. SCORE is deeply honored to have the relationship with BFG Tires that we have had for three decades. Mike Julson, of Santee, Calif., who is a SCORE regular co-driver in SCORE Trophy-Truck, saw his Jimco open-wheel desert race cars win the 2008 SCORE Original Buggy Chassis Manufacturer point championship for the 15th time and 14th straight. Ken Major and his Major Performance company captured the 2008 Engine Builder point championship for the fifth time. A rugged group of 14 SCORE racers were also honored as 2008 SCORE Toyota Milestone Award winners after finishing all 1,692.50 race miles during the season. John Calvin, the well known publisher of Dusty Times Magazine, was honored for the first time as Judy Smith SCORE Journalist of the Year, while Durka Durka Photo earned SCORE Photographer of the Year honors for the first time. Calvin's late wife, Jean Calvin, earned the SCORE journalist award 11 times. The six 2008 SCORE Sportsman class winners each also received an exclusive Wahoo's Fish Taco "Vestal" Co-Branded Motorhead Men's Watch, courtesy ofWahoo's co-founder Wing Lam.

That was at the north-ern tip of Laguna Salada, still very close to the Mexicali/Tecate high-way. They then ran along the east-ern edge of the "dry" lake. There was one legal alternate route, just in case the original route became too muddy. This dry late is never truly dry, although it has that ap-pearance. Under a foot or so of dry silt and salt, there's a muddy bog that can easily trap an unwary driver, even in a Trophy Truck. Once past the hazards of Salada, the course returned to some old routes, traveling the washes that parallel Highway 3. Eventually, at Mile 279 they'd arrive at Borrego, where they crossed the Ensenada Highway, and began a big loop. That carried them into Matias Pass, across the east edge of Diablo Dry Lake, then down old familiar roads toward San Felipe. They continued south past Zoo Road, eventually turning east and traveling down one of the washes to the old Puertecitos Road. Then they turned north, ran into and through San Felipe, out the ' northbound trails, sort of paral-leling the highway, up to Three Poles, where they turned left and joined the same course again, as it ran along the east/ west highway.

other race teams were curious. As an example, about 20 minutes be-fore the start Gordon spent about 15 minutes with his head tucked· into the wheel wells, getting a good look at its underpinnings, and there'd been plenty of others do-ing the same. All together, there were 26 Trophy Trucks. The Ramirez/Arambula/Lopez trio took the gold medal in the Class 1/2-1600 battle, they're seen here flyin' high at the Baja. Darren Skilton, with help from John Kellwitz and Matt McCallum drove the Jeep Wrangler to a nice win in the Class 3 competition.

It's going to be raised up so it won't be underwater when-ever it rains or there's a high tide, and work is already underway. So the citizens of Ensenada had no easy "alternate route" for those three days, and must have felt sorely tried from time to time. The bikes started early in the morning, and then after a three hour wait, the Trophy Trucks led the four-wheeled classes off the line. Everyone was started 30 sec-onds apart. It was 10:39 a.m. where the first truck took to the trail. The weather was mild, with a faint fog hanging over the area, as a hint of what was to come. The drivers had been right. The race really began once they'd reached the bottom of the Rumarosa. And for those who 2,.163 Rooms And Suites 60 Table Games 2,300 Slot Machines Poker Room Race & Sports Book 800-Seat Bingo Room 16 Movie Theaters forgot, it ended early. Pete ~ohren blew his motor at Mile 8, and Robby Gordon ran his Chevy into a "giant boulder" ("it's been there for 100 years", said Pete), right there. His truck tipped over on one side and Pete Lent him his tow strap so he could get uprighted and go on. But Robby wasn't able to go all the way. He pulled off the course and headed down the highway before getting to Borrego. Brian Collins and Chuck Hovey, in the Dodge, lost their motor at about the same point. The big buzz the day before had been the introduction of Volkswagen's newTouaregTrophy Truck, which is diesel powered and shaped like a Touareg (that is, an SUV rather than a truck). It gath-ered crowds. The drivers were Ryan Arciero and Mark Miller, a topnotch Baja team. It wasn't just the fans who were interested. The Behind them Baldwin felt he had to "play catch up" all day af-ter that flat. He said the course was "very rough. It's very techni-cal. There were lots of places to make mistakes." At night it was particularly hard to see because there was no wind, and the dust mixed with the fog and hung. This made it hard to get around the quads and bikes.

not to make mistakes. He said he'd have like to "run all out", but he wanted the championship. Baldwin finished the race with the Trophy Truck championship, while Norman and Roeseler were second in the points standings. In third place it was the team of Chad and Larry Ragland in their Toyota. Larry, who started the race, lost his power steering belts at one· point. He got out at Mile 355, which was just north of San Felipe a bit, and Chad took over from there. He had no me-chanical problems, but ran into thick fog at Uruapan, and was in fog almost all the rest of the way. The Raglands were 41 minutes in back of Baldwin. In fourth it was Mark Post and Rob MacCachren in their Ford. MacCachren started and finished and Post drove the middle section. MacCachren had no problems, but when Post got in he lost his intercom. This meant he couldn't talk to his navigator, and wasn't able to get his instruc-tions about what course condi-tions·were coming up. It slowed them considerably. The navigator, Kelly Courie, tried to use hand sig-nals to indicate what was in front of them, but it was a poor substi-tute for their usual easy commu-nication. MacCachren got back in to do the last section and came up on Garron Cadiente in Ron Whitton's Ford, stuck on the course. MacCachren had to push him clear of the track, and that badly damaged his front light bar, giving them poor lights for the rest of the trip. They finished fourth, less than five minutes behind the Raglands. In fifth it was the Toyota of Dan Friedkin, Steve Hengeveld and Danny Sullivan, an hour and three minutes further back. They didn't report any specific prob-lems, but Sullivan said he had a lot of dust, and Hengeveld had fog and rain on the beach section. He said he had trouble seeing thanks to the fog, and interestingly, he felt "it was worse in the truck than on a bike, 'cause there's more lights." Sixth went to Justin and Bob Lofton, Chevy. They started 20th, and Justin had some brake prob-Pietro Brassea and Ivan Pacheco took a very nice win in the Class 5 at the Baja 1000, it was 18 hours, 1 7 minutes in the car, but well worth it. !ems thanks to a torn up brake line. By about Mile 200 he had no brakes at all, so he pretty much drove in just first and second gear. His dad, Bob, got in at Mile 400, and he had a couple flats. He said it was the "toughest race course I've been on." They also had a sticky throttle pedal for a while. Justin was surprised that six Tro-phy Trucks had finished before any Class 1 cars came in. He said "They were ea tin' us up 'ti! we got to Borrego." Apparently the course favored the cars to that point, and then the Trophy Trucks were more at home the rest of the way. In seventh it was the Chevy of Robbie Pierce and Mike Julson. Pierce was the starting driver, and he'd been stuck in a hole in the Pine Mile 75, which cost him an hour. His crew had to come in and pull him out. Julson avoided that kind of disaster, but had to stop and add oil every 100 miles. They were 40 minutes be-hind the Loftons. In eighth it was Ron Whitton and Garron Cadiente, who fielded only one Ford for this event. Cadiente said they "didn't have the best truck today." They were plagued with motor problems, and the hood came off, the sway bars broke, they lost their rear brakes and a tie strap wrapped around the rotor in front. They lost their rear limit straps, and had to add water. They were 18 min-utes behind seventh place. Bobby Baldwin's Chevy was next to finish, in ninth. Baldwin drove to Mile 100 and put Job in there. Originally Job was sched-uled to get in at the bottom of the Rumarosa, but Baldwin changed plans and had Job helicoptered up to Mile 100 and installed him there. He drove the balance of the race, a long day. He had no brakes all day, but avoided major disas-ters. He got stuck, and had to re-place his lower front Hghts with some from on top. They were 44 minutes behind eighth place. In tenth it was Darnen Jefferies who drove all the way in his Chevy. He was slowed early in some kind of jam that he couldn't see the cause of, and then his shifter started to break in the Pine For-est. He said, "So, I didn't shift 'ti! I got to the bottom ofRumarosa." He just left it in third. It eventu-ally did break. He shredded a tire as he arrived at Borrego the sec-ond time. He did the entire San Felipe loop in third gear. At Mile 519 he hit a hole and got stuck, then had to dig his way out. Then he lost a torque converter seal, and had to take time for repairs. He said it was "One heckuva tough race -never a dull moment."

time was 18:0 4:49, about two hours behind fourth place. Luis Ramirez drove all the way in his Jefferies Chevy, and finished sixth. He said, "I did the whole thing. I think it was a mistake." He changed his alternator three times. Said he, "It was tough, real tough, I'm really happy to be here." His time was 19:08:44. In seventh it was Tony Murray, Randy Ross and Josh Rigsby in a Penhall Chevy. They had c.v. prob-lems, losing an hour at Mile 190, and another 45 minutes at Mile 400. They were just 17 minutes be-hind sixth place. Marc Burnett was one happy fella when he took the Class 6 win, he's seen here early on in his well lighted Ford Ranger. Guillermo Galvan with help from Ricardo Galvan took the Class 7 win in Mexico, seen here with a bit of body panel missing. Eighth place went to Brian Parkhouse and Chuck Sacks in their Jimco Chevy. Tom Ridings usually shares the driving with Parkhouse, but he injured his back testing at Plaster City not long be-fore the race. Parkhouse somehow was crashed onto at Mile 17, which was the start of a jam at that point. Another Class 1 car was parked on his car, which was seemingly parked in a ditch. Then more cars arrived, apparently un-able to see well in the dust, and a pileup ensued. None of the sto.-ries were very clear, but it was cer-tain that Parkhouse was at the bottom. He lost "lots of time". Then, when he got to Laguna Salada, he got stuck. Sacks had to change a c.v. joint at Ojos Negros on the way in, and he also changed a power steering pump somewhere along the line. Also -while being pulled out of his "stuck", the car rolled over, and Sacks also man-aged to get stuck later in the day. They said it had been "a long day". been stuck at Uruapan and had to dig themselves out. They'd also lost an alternator and a fuel pump. This was the first time out for the truck. The 15th place finisher in the Trophy Truck class w·as the team of Scott Steinberger, Mike Childress and Jimmy Nuckles, in a Ford. They finished at 10:30 Saturday morning, reporting that Childress had hit a booby trap at Erendira and rolled the truck, which cost him about four hours. They'd also had "motor issues", broke a steering box and had to wait for parts, and had to fix a bolt on a light bar. Childress said he "had a blast." They were the last Trophy Truck team to get there. Non-finishers in the Trophy Truck ranks included Sohren, Collins and Gordon who were all reported to have lost motors. Rick D. Johnson and Ricky Johnson, a very capable team, failed to fin-ish, as well as the Vanderwey brothers, Alan Pflueger, and Gus and Tavo Vildosola, Mexico's best bet for a top finish by a Mexican team. It was reported that Tavo hit a tree at high speed and tore the back end out of the truck. Francisco Cervantes and his Camaro didn't make it, nor did Kory Scheeler, James Bult or Ed Stout.· None of them reported back with the details. In Class 1 there were 28 start-ers, but only ten of them finished. First to get to the finish was the team of Chuck Dempsey and John Herder, driving a Chevy powered Jefferies. Herder started and later said, "I just drove unusually not my style. It was completely un-eventful for me." Dempsey re-ported "a lot of fog and dust." They had no flats, and no other problems. Their time was 14:59:57, a surprising two hours and 19 minutes slower than the first Trophy Truck. In second place it was Harley Letner and Kory Halopoff, in their Chevy powered Alpha Perfor-mance. Halopoff had a flat. Letner got stuck five minutes after getting in and then decided, "I bet-ter calm down and get to the fin-ish." The two have had a hard time finishing anything for the last year, and Halopoff expressed that suc-cinctly, saying, "It's so good to be here!" They were 18 minutes be-hind the winning car. Ron Brant and Richard Boyle were third in their Jimco Chevy. Brant said, "The first 20 miles were a disaster - cars on top of each other." Once clear of that he said the silt was really bad and he couldn't find the course. He got into a blockage on Rumarosa,.and lost his starter. Boyle, who did the second half reported that his throttle had been sticking since San Matias (just west of Borrego). They were only 12 minutes behind second place. Fourth place went to Rob Bruce who drove all the way in his Jefferies Chevy. He had an early fire due to over-flowing fuel, and had to go fast to put it out. His alternator burned up in the inci-dent. He also had a few flats, and then got hit in the shoulder when someone tossed a rock at the car. He was 34 minutes behind third place. In fifth place it was Brian, Beau and Travis Robinson, all from Australia, in a Jimco Chevy. Brian, the father, started the trip and his sons finished. They broke their limit straps, but had no other trouble. They said, "It was awe-some, absolutely awesome."

Their time was 20:05:09. In ninth place it was B.J. Richardson. T.J. Flores shared the driving, doing Mile 220 to 420 in the Bunderson Chevy. They'd had to pull the transmission out and replace the converter, which had been losing fluid fast. But they had no flats. Richardson won the over-all season points championship with this finish. Their time was 20:31:25. Tenth, and last in the class to finish, was the team of Martin Christensen and Armin Schwarz, in their BMW Jimco. They'd re-portedly been parked on top of Parkhouse. Schwarz had spent two and a half hours at Mile 17, having apparently driven straight into a ravine. It was, said Christensen, "A total s*** sand-wich." They didn't have any flats or any mechanical trouble. Said Christensen, "A Baja race is never over 'ti! you're here." Their time was 22:38:26.

Also, the Wilson brothers, Brendan Gaughan, Dale Lenk, Lee Patton, Mark Weyhrich, Alan Roach, Willie Cummings, Brendan Fikes and John Hsu. It was a tough day. The Class 10 cars were third off the line, with 11 starters. Three of them were hoping to be the first VW powered car back to the finish, aiming at Volkswagen's $5,000 bonus for doing that. But when the first Class 10 car arrived at the finish line about 3 a.m., it was powered by a Honda. Lobsam Yee, who started last in the class, brought his Jimco to the finish line first. He had no flat tires, but a loose cable on his computer cost him a It was a nice win in Class 7SX for John Holmes and Mark Landersman, they're seen here nicely airborne in their Ford Ranger.

Their time was 29 hours 45 minutes and 58 seconds. In eighth, and last in the class, it was Brian Martin, Dennis Cota and Robert Soldat, in a Penhall.

It was a really nice win for Lobsam Yee in Class 10, he's seen here flying his Jimco Chevy before an admiring crowd. Barragan, Roberto Encinas and Ty Thompson all failed to make it in. The Class 8 trucks were next to take off, and they had six start-ers. Juan Carlos Lopez, from Tecate, and Beny Canela, one of the sport's senior drivers, at age 72, took the win in their Ford. Lopez drove the start and finish, while Canela did the San Felipe loop. They had no flats, but Canela did get stuck for a while in his section. Their time was 21:02:21. In second place it was Corey Susag, Mike Horner and Ted Hunnicut, in a Toyota Tundra. Said Susag, "We just barely made it -the most hard fought 1000 I've ever done!" They had a fuel delivery problem all through the race and it leaned the motor down and burned pistons. Susag also spent some time in the Mile Dusty Times 17 traffic jam, and then he had brake trouble. Horner was the second driver, and dealt with mo re of the same, and then Hunnicut got in for the finish, also dealing with the problems. They were three hours and 55 minutes behind the winning truck. In third place it was Ford's prototype Raptor, which will not be available to the public until the summer of 2009. The team of Steve Olliges, Bud Brutsman, Gene Martindale, Greg Foutz and Randy Merritt drove it. It's an "off-roaded" F150, wider than usual, with off road shocks from the factory, and a list of after-market type goodies that will come stock, as well as good look-ing graphics on the bedsides. Olliges said it was "Awesome" at 100 miles per hour. It was just barely built in time for the race, Rick St. John/Dean Bayerle and Ramsey El Wardani teamed up to take the SVORE Lite win, seen here in their Duvel. and then developed a wiring gremlin, which had to be located and corrected the night before race day. Actually, it was more like race morning. Olliges was stuck briefly, Brutsman had a clean run, Martindale had a clean run, but Foutz had a flat rear tire and had to change two rear springs, two separate times. Merritt got stuck several times. They finished a half-hour behind second place. As with the Volkswagen, this was a very fine performance for the first time racing, and this is (ostensibly at least) a stock vehicle, available to the general public in the same configuration. Fourth place went to Tom Bra-dley, Sr. and Mayo Flores, in a Chevrolet. Flores started the race and Bradley got in at Borrego. They had A-Arm trouble, and fin-ished two hours behind third January 2009 place. They were the final finish-ers in the class. Noah Ostanik didn't make it, nor did Andrea Tomba. The Protrucks went off the line next, with four starters. Jason and Rich Voss took the win in their Ford. Jason "drove off an edge" about ten miles before the finish, and his dad (Rich) had to come in and pull him out. But they had no flats and no serious problems, finishing in the time of 17:48:30. In second place it was Jason and Jeff Horsley and Dave Mason, in a Chevy. They lost a by-pass shock and broke a tire mount and finished about two hours and 20 minutes behind the winning team. Third went to Gary Magness and Steve Knudson in a Ford. Magness had to replace a drive shaft, but they had only flat all day. They were also stuck once on a tree. But they said, they had a machete. They were about two hours and 15 minutes behind sec-ond. Fourth, and last of the group, was Nils Castillo and Joe Custer, in a Chevy. Castillo started, and he rolled the truck. Then Custer also rolled it and tore the right front suspension off. That cost another three hours or so for re-pairs. Custer said that when he rolled he landed driver-door down on the edge of a cliff. It was so scary, "I was gonna click (the emergency button) and tell my kids I love 'em!" Custer, who's part of a NASCAR team, comes to the 1000 nearly every year. He said he'd had "a ton of fun -awesome course -that's why we come here!" They were about three hours be-hind third place. And they gave the Protrucks a 100% finish rate. The 1/2-1600 cars went off the line next, with 17 starters. At the end of the day this was one of the few classes with a close finish. Arnoldo Ramirez, Misael Arambula, and Daniel Lopez, in a Curry, said "todo perfecta!" They had no flats, and only a "small" clutch cable problem. Their time was 16:53: 11, and they were 37th overall, including bikes, a very nice finish. Behind them, in second place by just five minutes and 49 sec-onds, it was Arturo and Abel Velazco and Steve Cruz in a Por-ter. They had a couple of flats, and then lost their alternator. They finished on batteries only for the final 70 miles, arriving at the finish line at about 4:20 a.m. In third place it was Dave Continued next page Page 13

Chad Hall, with dad Rod Hall took the Stock Full win in their Hummer H3 Alpha, here's living proof that Hummers can fly. Caspino and Mike Malloy in a Lothringer. Caspino, who started, had a flat and got lost near Borrego. Malloy, who was driving his first Baja 1000, did the sec-ond half, and "had the time of my life." They were an hour and eight minutes behind second place. Fourth place went to Eric, Evan and Hiram Duran in their Neth. At Mile 120 they'd broken a rocker arm, which cost them an hour, and at Uruapan they ran out of lights, and did five miles with just a flashlight. But, they said, "We had fun!" They were 22 minutes out of third place. Fifth place was Cody Robinson, Roberto Romo and Jose Robles. Romo started and drove to Mile 220, then Robinson took over, and Robles finished. They broke a distributor and lost three and a half hours waiting for a new one. Robinson broke a valve Dusty Times cover in San Felipe, and lost all the oil. But Robles had no issue beyond losing a shock. They didn't get stuck near Uruapan, an area that was very difficult for some teams. They reported fog on the beach. They were an hour and 40 minutes behind fourth. Sixth place went to Manuel Cruz and Carlos Bernaldez in a chassis built by Eric Fisher. (Fisher, SCORE's Class 9 cham-pion for many years, has recently been constrained from racing due to heart problems, but he had open heart surgery a year ago, and says his heart is "very strong" now. He's still not racing however.) Cruz started and had some power steer-ing trouble, but they had no flats. They were 40 minutes behind fifth place. In seventh it was Edgar Alvarez, Jr. and Edgar Alvarez, Sr., in a Curry. We missed them somehow Gavin Skilton drove his Honda Ridgeline to the Stock Mini win, he's seen here doing some hustling along the course. in the crowd. They were about an hour behind sixth place. Eighth place went to the team of Kevin Walsh, George Peters, Shawn Umphries and John Spar, who all drove their Penhall. They said they'd been stuck a couple of times. It was the first time in a 1600 for all of them. They also said there were "so many things to challenge the driver and the co-driver because of the diversity." (It's always amazing when a driver or chase person can still speak in full sentences at the end of a Baja race.) They were 50 minutes be-hind seventh place. In ninth place it was Chris Langmeyer, Mike Herrick and Jeff Hoover in a Curry. They said it had been a "good day", and noth-ing broke. They were just four minutes behind eighth place. Tenth went to Martin Shuster, Victor Lugo and Arturo Honold January 2009 in a Jimco. Shuster had one eye nearly closed from dirt or some-thing, and could hardly see. They'd been in the Mile 17 jam up, and had a couple of flats, and Lugo got stuck because of one of the flats. They were about 18 min-utes behind ninth place. In 11th it was Cory and Rick Boyer in their Lothringer. Cory started and Rick got in at Mike 279 and drove to the end. Cory had one flat, and he rolled over at Mile 210 when he got off course in a big washout. He tore off the roof, made it a "moon roof', said Rick. He also said, "We worked on the car a lot." They were six minutes behind tenth place. In 12th it was Adam Pfankuch, Vic Bruckmann and Steve Eugenio in a Mirage. Adam started, but got out early because he had a Class 1 ride also. Eugenio got in next and went to Borrego, and then Adam got back in, be-cause the Class 1 car "was dead". Then Vic did Mile 430 to Mile 595, and Pfankuch finished. They lost six hours with "motor issues -a fluke deal." A fan belt fell off and they had only one flat tire. They said it had been a good race, "except for the issues." They were 25 minutes behind 11th. The lucky 13th finisher, last in the class to get there, was the brother team of Horacio and Ro-man Pereyra in a Garibay chassis. Their steering rack broke at Mile 249 and it took seven hours to make the repairs. They finished at 2 p.m. Saturday. Eliseo Garcia, Brent Parkhouse, Sparky Wilbur and Jose Delgado A. were the non-fin-ishers in the class. Class 5 started next, with six cars. The winners were Pietro Brassea, Ivan Pacheco and Pedro Morquecho, a Mexicali team. They were really happy; because this was the first time they'd managed to finish a Baja 1000. They said they'd had only one flat, but that wasn't all bad, because whoever had the flat had t pay for the team barbecue. It had been very foggy for them coming in from Ensenada. Their time was 18: 17:37. In second place it was Jim Anderson and Drew and Mike Belk (father and son). Anderson, who started, got hung up on a tree in the pine forest for two hours. Happily, they had packed a saw in the car for the first time. They were only 25 minutes behind the winning team. Continued next page Page 15

Third place went to Kevin Carr and Michelle Bruckmann. Carr drove to Mile 425, and said, "It beat the hell outta me - I was really exhausted." They had elec-trical problems, and it quit. It got wet, electrical cables got loose and it quit a lot. "Everyone passed us", they said. Bruckmann said Uruapan was "awful - six bad, bad hills." They were 26 minutes behind second place. Finishing fourth it was the team of Terry and Rick McClintock and Vince Wavra. Terry started, Rick did the San Felipe loop and Vince finished. Terry lost a front control arm, and it cost them four hours. Vince, another senior driver, at age 66, reported that they needed "more ribbons at the end." That, of course, was a consequence of finishing at 11 :30 on Saturday morning. The local kids had had plenty of time to strip the mark-ers and ribbons that SCORE had put out so racers could find their way in. It is always thus. It took them 23:59: 13 to get to the fin-ish line. . In fifth it was Carlos Albanez and Luivan Voelker who'd had an eventful time, if nothing else. They changed their transmission three times. Once at Borrego, again at Mile 500 and again at Mile 600. They also replaced two c.v. joints and one axle. They said it was a "rough course, lot of climbing, lot of rocks." And they got their GPS wet again, and it quit working again. This hap-pened at the 500 also. They were the final finishers, using up 26 hours 17 minutes and six seconds to get back to Ensenada. Gregory Morley and a whole team from New York, entered in a bug painted yellow with black checks, like a New York taxi. But they didn't get to the finish. Class 6, a new class called "un-limited production mini-trucks", and reportedly similar to Class 7200 at the Best In The Desert events, had three entries. Mark Burnett, who drove all the way in his Ford, took the win in 27:02:31. He said 'Tm feelin' it." He replaced a transmission at Mile 45, and also had a cracked intake manifold from San Felipe on. It ran on four cylinders from that point, and "got stuck a lot." Said Burnett, "It's a lot harder than dirt bikes!" He was the only finisher in the class. Benjamin Wright and Dana Dague were the dnfs. Class 7 was next, with seven en-tries. The first one was the Ford of Guillermo and Igor Galvan, a father and son team from Bay of L.A. Igor's first words as he fi.n-ished, were "Holy Smokes!" They said they had no problems or anything. In the beginning they'd laid the car on its side, and later they ran out of gas and waited a half an hour for someone to bring some in. They said there was "a lot of mud -and it's long." Their time was 21: 16:25. In second it was Cesar and Os-car Belloso, a team from Tijuana, in a Ford. They each drove half, but Oscar finished in the navigator's seat. They rolled over and got stuck. This was their first SCORE event, but they've been racing CODE. They were about two hours behind the winning truck. In third place it was Jose Canchola, Jr. and Jose Canchola, Sr., in a Ford with a wildly de-cambered front end. They said they'd had no GPS for the early part of the race. They finished about two hours and ten minutes after second place. In fourth place it was Jose Gonzalez, Mario Montes and Jonathan Quintero, a Tijuana team, in a Ford. They had no flats, but were stuck in the silt three times. They also lost three and a half hours when they broke a trailing arm. Dan Chamlee and his son Tom, also in a Ford, were the fi-nal finishers, at about 4: 15 Sat-urday afternoon, with a time of 28:38. Scott Ulrich and Chris Taylor were the two non-finishers in the class. The Baja Challenge class was next. This is a group that races only in the Baja 1000. They are identically equipped two seat bug-gies with Subaru motors, which are used for tours by the Wide Open Baja organization, owned and operated by Todd Clement. Each car usually has from four to six drivers. There were 13 cars this year, and at least two well-equipped chase vehicles which trailed them down the course, me-chanics on board, to make quick work of any needed repairs. They have very well coordinated radio and tracking, and a number of highly experienced Baja racers (now retired, or at least semi-re-tired) who do some of the driv-ing, also. Some racers from other forms of racing have run in this class, and some television celebri-ties also join in, but there are quite a few folks who are simply intrigued by the idea of racing in Baja, and like not having to own a car and field a team themselves. For them, this is an easy way to go. First to finish was the team of Chris Kemp, James DeGaine, Daniel Elkins, Vincent Trino, Pat McCleish and Dino Crescentini, who "normally road races." Their time was 18:51:45. In second place it was John Mcinnis III, John Mcinnis, Jr., Kerry Earnhardt and Rick Skelton. They said they'd had flats. They were only 11 minutes behind the winning car. Third went to Mike Cassling, Brad Crosby, Craig Donaldson, Mike Mitten, Marco Guerrero and his dad, Roberto Guerrero, who said, "You can't beat Baja!" He was pleased that his son got to drive. They were about an hour behind second place. There was about an eight hour spread be-tween first and 13th, but they all got to the finish. The 5-1600 cars were next to start, with 15 cars lined up. The team of Marcos Nunez and Norberto Rivera said that the only thing slowing them all day was "a little alternator problem." Otherwise it was a clean race. Nunez did the start to Mile 150, then Rivera drove for a while, and then Nunez got back in and did the final 150 miles. Their time was 18:22:06. In second place it was the team of Mario and Frank Reynoso and Roberto Ravalo. They said they had a lot of problems, including a roll-over onto the passenger side, shocks, and a c.v. joint. But they had no flats. They were an hour and 20 minutes behind first place. In third it was Ernie Negrete, Victor Herrera, Jr., and Archie Negrete, Jr. Ernie did the start to Rumarosa, Herrera went down the Rumarosa to Borrego, and Archie did the San Felipe Loop. Then Ernie finished. They had no problems, just flats, a lot of dust and a rough course. They were an hour and ten minutes behind second. Fourth place went to Pedro Athie and Ruben De La Fuente, Jr. and Sr. They said they had a good race. They broke a shock, had one "stuck" in San Felipe, and there was "too much fog" on the coast. They were an hour and 20 minutes behind third place. In fifth it was Alonso Angulo, Andres Rodriguez and Roberto Escobedo. They'd rolled their car and lost "six to eight hours" with repairs. They finished at about ten minutes to three on Saturday afternoon. Sixth place went to Ross Bur-den, Eric Reisen, Pete Reisen and Glynn Fisher, who all came from Canada to race in Baja. They said they "drove a 1000 to race a 1000." They "pre-ran" the night before the race. That is, they did the first 15 miles two times, and that was all the pre-running they got. During the race they had to adjust their rear bars twice (it was a new car, just finished in the parking lot of their motel) adjust the jetting, and had to s'et their lights. Other than that, they had a good race: They were ten min-utes behind fifth place. And they were the last to finish. Ruben Gutierrez, Jr., Mark Low, Colin Campbell, Tommy It was a fairly easy win in Pro Truck Class for Jason and Rich Voss, they're seen here in their Ford F-150 with the power on. Craft, Carlos lribe (who was go-ing to solo), Armando Garcia, Larry Antuna, Ernesto Arambula and Javier Morales all failed to finish. Class 7SX had 11 starters, and they went off the line next. At the end of the trip, John Holmes, Mark Landersman and Carl Fitts, in a Ford, were the winning team . Holmes started, Fitts did the San Felipe loop and Landersman fin-ished. They'd been stuck, had two flats and had no oil pressure. This was the first time that Landersman has finished in a Baja 1000. Their time was 20: 15: 11. Twelve minutes behind them it was Heidi Steele, Renee Brugger and Danny Strait in their Ford. They took the season points championship with the second place. In third place it was Noe and Tony Sierra and German Encinas, in a Ford. Noe drove the start to 145 and then Mile 270 to 405. Encinas did 145 to 270, and Tony drove from 405 to the finish. They had transmis-sion problems and were stuck three times, but they had no flat tires. They were an hour and 20 minutes behind second place. In fourth it was Rich Severson and Bruce Finchum. Severson started and finished, while Finchum drove the middle. They had no mechanical problems, but Severson was stuck in the dunes at Mile 190, and one of the Moss brothers pulled him out with his Class 3 Bronco. Severson lost about 40 minutes. They were 45 minutes out of third place. Rudy Suarez and Ricardo Garcia finished fifth in another Ford. They had some electrical problems that cost them about two and a half hours, but they had no flat tires. They were three hours behind fourth place. In sixth it was Norm Turley and his 18 year old son, Trevor. Norm did the start to Mile 280, then Trevor went to Mile 595, then Norm got back in so they could finish the race "as father and son." They broke three leaf springs, which cost them four hours, and they finished on a bro-ken spring. They also had two blown shocks, and broke the track link. They ran with that safety wired together. This was the first time they've finished a Baja 1000. They were an hour behind fifth place. In seventh, and last in the class to finish, it was Pepe, Jesse and A.J. Rodriguez, in a Ford. That's another father and son team. And the father, Pepe, is one of the senior citizens of off road rac-ing, at age 70. Before the race Pepe said that this would be his last race. He spoke heatedly, with his typical slightly fractured En-glish (Pepe is from Argentina.) To quote him, "I quit - I don't have to see Bill Savage any more in my life!" Apparently, getting the truck through tech inspection had been something of a chal-lenge. Pepe definitely felt that 39 years of dealing with Bill Savage was enough for him. It mus.t have felt good to go home with a fin~ ish the last time out. Alberto Iriarte, Brandt Anderson, Jim Hinesley and Billy Bunch were the ones who didn't finish. Class Stock Full was next off the line, with five starters. The first one back was the H3 Hum-mer of Chad Hall. This was his seventh win at a 1000, and he de-clared, "This one's pretty tough to win." He had no problems at all, but changed his first tire in about five years. He said he drove around a "lot of stuck cars." His time was 19:22:47. In second place it was Kent Kroeker and Rudy lribe in their Dodge Ram 2500. They said they'd been fighting "dust and de-mons all day." They were an hour and 50 minutes behind Hall. Third place went to Josh Hall in his Hummer H2. He said "It was a rotten day."

The next class in line was the Stock Mini trucks, with four en-tries. Gavin Skilton took the vic-tory in his Honda Ridgeline, driv-ing all the way. He said he had "a perfect day", but then admitted to making "one tiny huge mis-take", in the silt, and Kent Kroeker pulled him our. Then, he said he "broke my car trying to regain the lead, and didn't do it -then my competitor broke his even worse." He had just one flat after hitting something. In second place it was the team of Rod Hall and Mike Winkel in their H3 Hummer. They alter-nated the driving, with Winkel getting stuck with the Rumarosa. They'd changed a ring and pin-ion before they ever got that far and also had a couple of flats. They lost a "lot of time" said, Winkel who was in at the finish. They were an hour and a half behind Skilton, and they were the final finishers in the class. Steve Kovach didn't make it, nor did Ryan Millen, who report-edly drove into a hole and broke an axle. Class 9 lined up next, with four starters. Cisco and Pancho Bio took the win, in their Tubu-lar Design chassis single seater. This was another father and son team, and the father, Pancho, started. He got to the top of Rumarosa and got sick, so Cisco got in and drove to Mile 220. They took turns driving after that. At one point both front stops broke and they made a quickie repair. They had no flat tires, but there was a lot of fog on the coast and it was hard to see. Cisco liked the IriTrack stuff, because it made it easy to keep track of their competitors. He said that when he was 16 years old he won the Baja 1000 in the same car. That was in 1998. In second place it was Daniel Reyes, Jr. and Julian Rivera and Hector Ortega in a Venegas. They said they'd been in the Mile 17 traffic jam, had some flat tires and "many problems". They were three hours down to first place. In third it was Ulysses and David Morquecho in a Borm. Their time was 28:09:07 and we were unable to be there to talk to them. The lone non-finisher in this class was Jay Wells. The Class 3 vehicles lined up next, with four starters. Darren Skilton and Jon Krellwitz drove their Jeep Wrangler to the win, and never got out of the car. They had no flats, and no other prob-lems, and finished in 18:46: 15. In second place it was Don and Ken Moss in their Bronco. The brothers leap-frogged the driving, but Don hadn't even completed his first stint when they lost their rear end at the top of La Rumarosa. that cost them an hour and a half, as the lead car went its trouble-free way. The Mosses kept up a steady pace af-ter that, but then had an electri-cal fire in the final 20 miles. They were two hours and 20 minutes down to the winning car. The other two entries: Chris Raffo and Scott Wooten, failed to fin-ish. In Class 17, which is for "Modified, Class 3 Jeeps", there were four entries. Mike Shaffer and Lance Clifford, in a Chero-kee, took the win. They reported that at Mile 560, while going up a silt hill, they went into a hole they hadn't seen. In or,der to get out they used their spares to fill the holes, and did some digging, and backed out. Shaffer did the first half and Clifford finished. They had no flats, and in fact say they haven't had one in several seasons. Their time was 23: 13:34.

SCIII: r--------------------------------~ Guys're Nuts! This year, for the first time in many a year, there were two sidehacks entered in the Baja 1000. These were not the comfy looking units you sometimes see on the highway with a semi-enclosed little car rolling alongside a Harley or Indian and a passenger cozily ensconced inside. These were dirt bikes with an attached flat platform that had metal railings for handholds, and some kind of non-slip surface for the "passenger's" feet. The passenger is actually called a "monkey", and once you've seen one in action, you understand the term. The guy on the sidehack has to use his body weight to help turn the bike/hack combination. They used to allow them to race in the Dakar rally, but they can't do that anymore, so the team of Sandro Lanardo, from Italy and Ruedi Howald, Switzerland, decided to enter the Baja 1 000. Well, when Scott Whitney, a local biker, got wind of it, he decided he'd like to give them some competition. So he put together a team consisting of himself, Les Walker, Joe Desrosiers and Kevin Anderson, and built a side hack to stick on the side of his Harley Davidson, and entered the 1000 also. Whitney was the only bike rider, the other three would be monkeys. Right off the bat they had an eagle on the European tam, which was just a two-man team. They were the last two vehicles to start in the early group (bikes and quads) and when the spectators saw the "monkeys" doing their acrobatics to help the bike turn that first corner on the pavement, they sent up a cheer that could be heard for blocks! They truly loved them. But the Baja proved too much for both teams. The Swiss/Italian team got 200 miles and came to a halt. Said Howald, "My monkey was destroyed!" They had only that one monkey and by the end of the 200 miles he was unable to move. At the finish, as they waited for the American team to come in, the Italian, Lanardo, sported bandages on both wrists and both hands. He'd had tape wrapped around the tubing that he held on to, and that had torn up his hands, and the rest of him was just worn out. Whitney, Walker, Anderson and Desrosiers, who's an experienced Baja racer, managed to get a lot further along the way. Their Harley Davidson suffered, and so did the monkeys. Somewhere along the way they lost their lights, and then they broke their forks, but a BFG pit welded them back together and sent them on. Back in Ensenada, as their time ran out, fans started to collect at the finish line to await their arrival. Reports said they were 30 miles out, then eight miles out, and then just "right out there" - but the clock was ticking all the time. Eventually their 31 hours had come and gone, and they still hadn't arrived. The team that had startetl the day waited for them at the finish, along with the Swiss/Italian team, Sal Fish, the lady bikers who'd just won their season points championship, and a motley crew of folks who loved the idea of a sidehack finishing the Baja 1000. And they waited. Meanwhile, the bike kept moving along. But time ran out, and even if they got there, they'd be non-finishers. The wonderful thing about the Baja races is not just the terrific races run by the winners. Often the stories of the non-finishers are much more heartwarming and entertaining than those of the front runners. Standing at the finish waiting for the sidehack to come in, we imagined how tired they must be, how bone weary that monkey was by now, and how difficult it must be to keep moving from side to side on his perch. The finally came around the last corner, all four of them on the bike and sidehack, grinning hugely, and acknowledging the wild applause from the crowd that had been awaiting their arrival. It didn't matter that they were overtime - they had managed to cover all 631 miles, and their fans loved it. We understand that one of the monkeys was scheduled to race in a motorcycle event next day, and didn't make it. He said he "couldn't move." No surprise. We're hoping they show Lip again, and bring some competition. The Swiss/Italian team moved Baja, the people and the camaraderie, but weren't sure they could afford to come back again. Too bad. They may have sparked a renaissance. It's probably been 36 or 37 years since a sidehack raced Baja. It was nice to have them back.

Ln.J2C: 52ND TOUR DE CORSE RALLYE DE FRANCE Loeb/Elena Citroen scare Big Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena drove their Citroen C4 to the win at Corsica, they're seen here high in the hills. Sebastien Loeb is five points away from his fifth world cham-pionship title, fellow Citroen driver Sebastien Ogier in his first season in the WRC has won the Junior title, so all is going well for the French double Chev-ron company. The third stage crash for Loeb's teammate Dani Sordo was Citroen's only disap-pointment, seeming only to de-fer the day when Citroen re-gained the Makes' title. The Ford teams never gave up, however. The Focus World Rally Cars were closer to the pace of the Citroens than previously, and their tactical advisers worked overtime in their quest to gain as many championship points as possible. One other title was won in Corsica, the Junior Fed-eration trophy which went to the Dutch KNAF team, who beat the French FFSA team. Overall the conditions made this year's Tour de Corse a memo-rable occasion, with Loeb lead-ing from start to finish and, like in Spain, winning the event for the fourth successive time. Mar-tin Prokop won the JWRC cat-egory, this was his fourth sub-sidiary victory in the past five events. Just hours after the Rally Catalunya finished, the world championship circus was on the move, on its way to the Mediter-ranean island of Corsica for the back-to-back Tour de Corse. With the effortless Citroen domination on the asphalt stages in Spain, only the wildest punters dared put bets on any other team winning in Corsica. Nor, for that matter, winning the final round of the FIA's Junior world championship in which only Sebastien Ogier and Aaron Burkart, both Citroen drivers, remained in contention. t:ratrsman Jacks & IWounr KilS • Sewre mounting platform for racecar, pre-runner or chase vehicle • Seff-latching quick-release system locks the jack to the chassis • Spring loaded quick·release mount secures the I ack handle • Flat base increase f ack's footprint and prevents the Jack tram sinking In the sand or sift Page 18 Spring loaded quick-release moJJnt a t'on Jack au.a a t'on Jack Kit 390.119 408.30 4aB.OO The asphalt stages of Corsica have a very different character to those in Spain. Although the roads continue to be improved, and have become less bumpy, those in Corsica tend to be more abrasive, which means tyre wear is increased, and also that the handling characteristics of the cars change. Ford in particular discovered that the smoother and less abrasive roads in Spain created a built-in understeer in their Focus WRCs, and that a less aggressive driving style proved quicker, while the teams reported there was a greater va-riety of grip levels to be found in Corsica. Fortunately none of the WRC teams had ·any mechani-cal disasters in Spain, so apart from the Munchi's team which gave Corsica a miss, the same cars were lined up again, with barely more than a day in which to refettel them. Corsica repre-sented the first anniversary of Suzuki's entry in World Rally Car competition, f1nd the team were encouraged after Spain to have had a second successive rally without technical failures, after a long period o( endeav-our. The route was very similar to before ·apart from a change to the location of shakedown, to the previously used familiar course, west of Ajaccio. Other things that had changed re-cently. Firstly the number of tyres the WRC teams could use was increased, something con-trary to the FIA's original policy of ecological saving. The reason was that it was deemed essential that competitors must leave ser-vice parks with new tyres, to avoid the temptation on asphalt rallies to leave with half-worn tyres, hoping this would give greater grip. There was a shock when four drivers were banned from the entry list of the Euro-pean Pirelli Star Driver Shoot-Out, to be held in Austria later in October on the grounds of being over qualified. The four January 2009 Martin Prokop and Jan Tomanek took the S1600 JWRC crown at Corsica, they're seen here at speed in their Citroen C2. concerned were Martin Prokop (Czech), Michal Kosciuszko (Pol-ish), Patrik Sandell (Swedish) and Andreas Aigner (German). In the case of Prokop, his re-placement contender from Czech Republic was announced before Martin had even heard he had been banned from the event! Both he and Kosciuszko only heard the news the evening before start of Corsica, after all their travel and management plans had been made. The Stew-ards had a busy time, fining Per-Gunnar Andersson for speeding during recce (27kph too fast, E 1350 fine) and Andreas Mikkelsen for a second offence in Corsica in two years (for crossing a traffic line, E 1250). Back in Ajaccio the location of the Ceremonial Start was changed and not so many people were aware of this, but not to worry it was a beautiful evening when the rally got un-der way, and there was no hint of any adverse weather to come. Day 1 6 Stages, asphalt, l 19.92kms. Sebastien Loeb set off in the manner to which he has become accustomed, setting fastest time on the first three stages, behind him Mikko Hirvonen, Dani Sordo and Francois Duval were fighting for second place. This was classic Corsican rallying. Sordo tried too hard on Stage 3 but went straight into a bank and out of the rally. It was only 700 metres into the first stage, and the thick black lines into the rock astonished even the most hardened competitors. Phil Mills: "I have not seen tyre marks so dramatic as that since Philippe Bugalski crashed on the first stage of Corsica in 2001 !" The suspension on the driver's side was wrecked front and back. Hirvonen, for who three points would keep his champi-onship hopes alive, at least un-til Japan, was second at the first halt, "We've made a much bet-ter start here than we did in Spain, when we could not make up for our sleepy start." He was in front of Duval. In fourth place was Petter Solberg, just ahead of Jari-Matti Latvala. Latvala was caught out on Stage 3, his tyres had got cool on the start line as he waited for six minutes while Sordo's car was removed from the track. Latvala, "Even though we all had hard tyres, this delay meant that I had the usual understeering problem until the tyres eventu-ally got up to the right tempera-ture. And I had a near miss on the first stage when we mis-judged the distance between bends. I thought I had braked early enough, but I hadn't!" Matthew Wilson went off into the trees, equally unscathed and equally, after misjudging a dis-tance, losing only a half minute or so. In another Focus, the young Norwegian Andreas Mikkelsen had another night-m a re come true. The crew checked in to the arrival con-trol before the first stage eight minutes late (lm20s penalty), a simple but devastating calcula-tion timing error. Once again Conrad Rautenbach had pres-sured his tyres wrongly, with pressures too high, running fur-ther back in eighth place on the road. Duval found the earlier running position had already started to throw a lot of dirt on the road, especially on Stage 1, while Urmo Aava had a shock absorber lose fluid and a bro-ken top mount on his private Citroen. By Stage 3 Aava had got the hang of the handling to a certain extent. Mads Ostberg was still learning the tarmac game, he found the Corsican experience amazing, his co-driver Ole Kristian Unnerud said "I have never seen so many Mikko HiNonen and Jarmo Lehtinen finished second overall in their Ford Focus RSOB, they're seen here before an admiring crowd.

(Mojave Off-Road Enthusiasts) and ROYAL PURPLE Synthetic Oils present for your off road pleasure -The Third Annual Powder Puff 'Race For The Cure'. Proceeds and donations from this event ben-efit Cedar Sinai Women's Breast Cancer Research Center. Patrick Burris, Marketing Coordinator, was there with a check from ROYAL PURPLE Synthetic Oil to Cedar Sinai -in the amount of $25,000. Steve Stokes, the Community Outreach Coordi-nator for Cedars-Sinai Women's Cancer Research Institute was on hand to see the 'Race For The Cure' first-hand and up close. This year's Powder Puff Race. netted the biggest turnout of all -138 Entries! And about $140,000 toward that effort -WOW*. "Cedars-Sinai is very ple·ased with the turnout and all that M.O.R.E. and the women racers do for breast cancer re-search", Stokes said. OK -that being said> Let's dispel with any rumors or jokes about 'Women driver~'. I'm let-ting you know, Race Fans -these women CAN drive.

The Ladies that drive · these machines are the greatest -some are new to driving, and there are those that race all the time. This event is not a trip to ·the grocery store - it is a Full Out RACE. On the other hand -They also teach 'defensive' driving skills for a reason. The T hird Annual M.O.R.E. Powder Puff 'Race For The Cure' was held October 10-11, 2008 in sunny, and "windy", Barstow, CA. Tech Inspection by A.R.T.S. was 4:30 p.m. till 9:00 p.m. at the Outlet Center Mall back parking lot off Mercantile Way. Friday night was "Mostly clear. Windy. Lows in the upper 40's. West wind 25 to 35 mph with gusts to around 50 mph, de-creasing to 15 to 25 mph with gusts to around 30 mph after midnight". That means it was downright cold! "A Wind Advi-sory remains in effect until mid-night PDT tonight for the Mojave Desert. These winds will raise areas of blowing dust and make travel difficult. A Wind Advisory means that winds of 30 to 39 mph and/ or wind gusts of 40 to 57 mph are expected. Winds this strong can make driv-ing difficult ... Use extra cau-tion." To the locals, it's just the usual Barstow 'breeze'. For off road racers and spectators, it means 'Dusty Trmes' and a face full of dirt. I love this sport! It was a 23 mile course with six (6) checkpoints, three (3) road crossings, and plenty of whoops, rocks, tight turns, and places to go-fast. There was a morning race (Group 1) for the 'slower' classes that started at 8:30 a.m. and ended at 12:30 p.m. Group 1 included Classes 1300, 3000, Ultra Lites, 300, 9, 5/16, · 7s, 1450, 1700, 11, UTVs.

Arid they did, too! The Overall Win-ner of the M.O.R.E. 2008 Third Annual Powder Puff "Race For The Cure" was Shirley Jergensen in #5; for the three-peat year in a row, in the same car, too. "The · limiter straps broke up front so it was a little loose, and we didn't have any brakes at the end", Jergensen reported. "We didn't hit anybody. It was wonderful!", said Jergensen. -From my vantage point, it looked to be a day of fun for most everyone -win, finish, or DNF. All for a great cause, and a great turn out ih support of women's breast cancer research. The BBQ started at about 4:30 p.m. and the Awa-rds Cer-emony started at 5:00 p.m., at S/F. Live music and a raffle and M.O.R.E. fun followed. Lots of people showed up to partake of the fun and frivolity, and to con-sume mass quantities of food.

Camila Granados was the (vir-gin rookie) co-driver. Here is her story ... "It all started when Jay, my boyfriend's good friend, told us about the Powder Puff race for breast cancer and how it was all woman -yadda, yadda, yadda - a few phone calls later and I was in a car! I had never raced before and didn't know the slightest thing about desert rac-i,ng in general. Art and Jay helped me a lot before and dur-ing the race, giving me tips and stuff. My first two laps were with Page 24 Christine Harper (her husband Donald also helped out a lot, sweet people!) It was so much fun, sliding around and going really fast! Christine was an awe-so me driver, very talkative, helped me to not feel so ner-,, vous. My last lap was with Kristen Flaherty from the Baja Coali-tion, who I hadn't met until she got in the race car. That lap, was -it was -really, really fast. Jay kept telling me "it's just like a roller coaster, it's just like Disneyland!" THAT LAP WAS NOTHING LIKE DISNEYLAND!! As if I wasn't already impressed with how pro-fessional these people were, Kristen got in and showed me how racing was done! She slid in front of somebody, cutting a corner to pass, and after she was all-"That's how its done kiddo." It was a good race for Kellyan Steinberger, she piloted her truck to the win with ease, more than a lap on her competition. It was AWESOME!" After the race was over, I got out of the car and bolted to the bathroom. I mean bolted, like I was sprint-ing, I had to pee so bad. Then I went back to the car and found Kristen arid said "Hi, I'm Mia. I was the one in the car with you just now. Sorry I split, I had to pee." She was a super sweet lady! Very fun and laid back. She gave me tips for riding passenger, and we talked about the race -just all around good people to hang with. They were all welcoming and helpful." "Racing in Art's car felt safe, and was an awesome experience! When Christine was driving we almost rolled the car, and you know what, I wasn't scared! You are strapped in there so tight, and you're in like a cage in the car, nothing could happen to you. I trusted the car, I trusted January 2009 the driver, I trusted the organi-zation. These people re-ally know what they are doing. (Please note: I am a big control freak, so for me to say l trust something/someone is BIG.) I left Barstow that weekend with a new found appreciation for the term "Desert Rat." I made friends, found some teachers, and fell in love with a two year old. Being a part of this race was an awesome experience and I am definitely coming back again. Hopefully I will get a chance at passenger again, maybe with the big boys! Thanks to Art, Donald, Christine, Kristen, Billy, Bobi, Lil' Billy, Molfy, ORAF, FAIR, Brian at 76 Wrap Special-ists, Cedar Sinai, the ORAF dog Sophie, the two pit kids for ORAF (the only two white.guys), and most importantly Jason Davis, for talking me into it."

"We lost a coil wire early on and zip-tied it back on", reported Flaherty. "The inner pivot bolt broke at MM19 on Lap 3 at 68 mph and we rolled the car three times.

After driving around lost for a while they got the GPS re-booted and found the course, finishing in fourth place. "We found the guys with the Jeep after the race.

Thank-fully, no one was hurt, and noth-ing more than cosmetic damage happened to either vehicle." "Long Beach Racers has a lot of girls that put up with our cra-ziness all year long, so we try to get as many of them into the truck as we can at the PP.

The world's best known BAJA 1000 and most prestigious desert race started for the 34th time and finished for the 19th time in Ensenada, 65 miles south of the U.S border at San Diego. As the final checkered flag dropped Saturday evening for the last of 227 official finishers in the 41st annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, it was obvious that another incredible and colorful chapter had been added to the legacy of this popular desert race in the magnificent Baja Califor-nia, Mexico, peninsula. The 347 start-ers are the most ever in race history for a 'loop' race and the third most of any race in the 41-year history of the event. The 227 finishers are also the third-most in event history.

DRAFT EA RELEASED BY PARK SERVICE ON RECRE-ATIONAL ACCESS TO YELLOWSTONE POCATELLO, ID (Novem-ber 5) -On Monday, November 3rd, the Environmental Assess-ment (EA) on continued winter motorized access to Yellowstone and Grand Teton Parks was re-leased for public review and comment. First announced on October 2nd, it is this EA pro-January 2009 cess that will determine options that would authorize over-snow acces~-including snowmobiles-to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks for the next three winters. This EA can be re-viewed at http:// The com-ment period will only be fifteen days. The BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) is reviewing the draft EA and its preferred alternative of only 318 snowmobiles allowed in the Yellowstone Park per day. BRC plans to provide comments on the EA and recommenda-tions for comments to meet the deadline of November 17, 2008. Please note the goal of the Na-tional Park Service is to have a final implementing rule from the EA in effect prior to the scrleduled Park opening on De-cember 15, 2008. After reviewing the 255 page EA, Jack Welch, BRC Special Projects Consultant, stated, "I am pleased that the Park Service is offering a solution for the challenges presented by the up-coming season. BlueRibbon re-mains committed to a long-term solution that will allow for rea-sonable snowmobile access to Yellowstone in the winter." Welch continued, "Remem-ber, in the last forty years, the Park has opened its gates to snowmobiles every season. I am sure Yellowstone will open its gates this season too. The main question is at what level snow-mobiles will be allowed to access Yellowstone and Grand Teton Parks this season. The EA pro-cess is one of the important steps in that determination." For further updates on access to Yellowstone this winter, please visit and bookmark our dedicated Yellowstone website: The BlueRibbon Coalition is a national recreation group that champions responsible recreation, and encourages individual environ-mental stewardship. It represents over 10,000 individual members and 1,200 organization and busi-ness members, for a combined total of over 600,000 recreationists na-tionwide. 1-800-258-3742. Page 57 -
