Adding some major drama and extra excitement to the marquee SCORE Trophy-Truck racing division for this week's 16th Annual SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge was the announcement today that SCORE desert racing stars Robby Gordon and B.J. Baldwin will return from the international desert rally they are competing at in Argentina and Chile in time for Sunday's final day of the two-day race in Laughlin, Nev. . For the 16th straight year, ·motorsports fans and racers from 11 U.S. States, Mexico, Denmark and Germany will gather in Laughlin, the Southern Nevada desert resort town along the shores of the Colorado River, for the popular SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge. Gordon, Charlotte, N.C., last year's overall winner in the SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge and the reign-ing SCORE Trophy-Truck and SCORE Overall point champion, and Las Vegas' B.J.

"Saturday should be a great first half of the race, but I can assure you that we're aren't going through all this to get to Laughlin for just another Sunday drive. With this weekend being a holiday weekend, nobody should leave Laughlin early. It's a new year and a new decade and I've got lots more to prove."

~ SHORT COURSE RACING Dominates Prt;, super 5/C By Judy Smith Photos: Track.side Photo Phil Bollman really gets it up in the air, Phil took the win in both Pro Super SIC heats and was awarded overall first in class. Devore,· CA: The Glen Helen Short Course series provided another afternoon of fun for the spectators and participants on October 3rd. With clear, warm weather and just a hint of a breeze it was a terrific day to sit in the sunshine and watch the competition. Racing started in the early afternoon and there were two heats for ev-ery class: a total of_ six heats in all. The ·biggest challenge for this end-of-summer race date was to keep the course wet enou h so that the dust didn't blind the racers. The usual water truck had bro-ken its transmission the day before the race, so the one being used was smaller and didn't hold as big a load of water. That meant it was necessary to plan carefully, and get the cars rolling right away, while things were still wet, otherwise the dry air just sucked the moisture out of the track. Happily, except for during the very first practice run, the breezes blew the dust away from the spectators. The Pilots and Stadium Lites had ei ht entries at this event, although only seven of them survived the practice session. Michelle Thompson, who'd come out from Phoenix, broke her front end and became a spectator. In the first heat for the Pilots Tim Compton, from Newcastle, California went into the lead on the first lap, followed by Jose Enriquez from Chula Vista, CA. Jeff Pechtel from Covington, Washington ran third. But on the fourth lap Enriquez slowed with some problem, and on Lap 6 he pulled out. Meanwhile, Steve Nelson, It was a fun day for Kyle Quinn, he took the Pro Single SIC Buggy win in both heats, Kyle is seen here nicely airborne. one of the regulars, put on a push and went into the lead on the seventh lap, as Compton dropped to sec-ond. Enriquez came back on, but was a lap down. Paraplegic Jerry Byerman pulled off for a bit to get his face shield cleaned, ana at the end of the eighth lap Pechtel rolled over and had to be towed away. Compton moved back up into the lead, entertaining the spectators as he made Turn 4 on three-wheels ev-ery ·1ap. He .pulled out a good lead and ensured his victory. Nelson was second and Jeff Hildebrandt, from Hesperia, was third. For the second heat there were only five of them. Pech-tel and Thompson didn't line up, but Nelson did, and his vehicle didn't go at the green flag. His crew came ·out and got it started for him, but it didn't run right and he pulled out. Mean-while, Com2,1,on had gone into the leaa, and built a long space between himself and Enriquez. Rick Rood, from Henderson, NV, ran third, but he had Byerman pushing hard to try to get past him. Compton led all the way, and in fact, lapped most of the field. Ultimately, En-riquez finished second and Rood was third. But when they totaled the two-heat scores, the weekend winner was Compton, with Rood second· ahd Enriquez third. The second race was for the Pro Sir; S/C Buggies - _or short course buggies with limited motors. There were five of them, and they all dove into Turn 1 at the same time, raising a cloud of dust. Sean Kennedy, from Huntington Beach emerged i n f.r o n t , c h a s e d by Ky 1 e Quinn, from Irvine and Jim Sizelove, from Hesperia. Sizelove pulled out on the second lap. Now it was Ken-nedy, Quinn and Gary Wil-liams, from Wildomar. But Quinn got past Kennedy in Turn 3 to take the lead. And on the next lap Williams moved up to second place. They ran in that order for~i the balance of the heat, with Williams gradually ga·ining on Quinn. He closed up in every turn, but Qu•inn could squirt out of the turns quicker each time. Ultimate-·ly, Quinn took the win with Williams second. Kennedy was third and Whiteley was fourth. John Beyer took the win in Pro SIC Lite first race but he was a dnf in the second Joe Whitely scored a fourth and a third place finish in Pro Single SIC Buggy, he race, he was scored 2"d in class for the day. was scored third overall in the class. • When they came back out for their second heat Sizelove didn't show, ap-parently unable to repair whatever had gone wrong. (By this time there was a scary plume of smoke rising up over the mountains to the north, distracting those who would need to drive up through Cajon Pass to get home. It was the beginning of the Sheep Fire, but as it turned out, it never did im-pact the pass.) On the first lap as they made it throu h Turn 2 Shaun Gibson entered the Pro Super SIC Buggy races buy he didn't Steve Nelson finished second in the Pilot/Stadium Lites first race, fare too well, he's seen here nicely airborne in his good lookin' car. did not start the second race and ended up 6th overall in the class.

Jerry Byerman was awarded a fifth and a fourth place finish in the Pilot/Stadium lite races, he scored fifth overall in the class. a sharp left hander, Wil-liams hit the big barrier and stalled and Kennedy plowed into him and broke his front end. He was out of the race. Williams got going again, running third. Mean-while, Quinn had built a big lead. Now they pretty much ran in order to the end, Quinn, Williams and White-ley. Quinn actually stalled in Turn 4 at one point, but he'd got such a lead that it wasn't enough to let Wil-liams catch him so it was Quinn, Williams and White-· ley, and for the weekend, the same. It was too bad to have lost Kennedy because he and Quinn were so evenly matched they were very en-tertaining to watch. The tl}ird race of the day was ·for the Pro Super S/ C Buggies -or the bug-gies with bigger motors and more suspension. They _also had the company of a couple of trucks. They lost Shaun Gibson right away, when his car failed to start. Then for a while it seemed that Ken Schertzer was pulling out, but he was merely heading back to his pit for a splash of gas - a little item his crew had apparently overlooked after practice. Once going, there were four buggies and two trucks · and they put on an enter-taining show. At the end of the first lap Phil Bollman had the lead, but John Beyer had his truck right there in second place, and John Holmes was crowding him in third. At the end of the sec-ond lap it was Holmes, Boll-man and Beyer., but then Bollman went back in front, only to see Holmes take over the lead again in Turn 3. By the third lap they'd settled down a bit and it was Holmes, Bollman and Beyer. By the fifth lap Bollman was hard on Holmes' tail, but he couldn't pass him. On the sixth lap he went into the lead in Turn 1, but Holmes was back around him again before the end of the lap. At the end of the seventh lap they were doing a sort of duet oin throu h Turn It was a fourth and a third place finish for Ken Schertzer in Pro Super SIC Buggy, he finished third overall for the day. Gary Williams recorded a pair of second place finishes in Pro Single SIC Buggy, thus, second overall in the class. Dusty Times John Holmes didn't have a great day, he finished second in Pro Super SIC Buggy, was a dnf in the second the next race, finished fourth overall. 4 as if performing an act. Meanwhile, the two trucks were having a good race also, at least until the end of the ninth lap when Anthony Verdone parked his truck in Turn 1 and didn't get mov-ing again. On that lap Bollman fi-nally went into the lead, and now Holmes was fun to watch as h.e tried to catch up again. He'd close, but then lose ground in a turn. Ul-timately, Bollman took the heat with Holmes second and Randy Minnier third. For their second heat all the same ones came back out again, and Gibson's crew was apparently unabl.e to fix whatever had gone wrong with his car, so he stayed parked. This time Holmes got the hole shot, but by the time they got to the end of the lap Bollman was back in front. They were close, with Holmes second and then Beyer in his truck in third. But on Lap 2 Beyer got side-ways in Turn 4 and lost a position. It was once again great fun to watch Holmes trying to catch Bollman. He'd get close, then lose ground in · a turn. Someti.mes they'd BPARE TIRE MOUNTB IIJAt:KB be side by side going into Turn 3, but Bollman would squeeze past, maintaining a slightly better line. They ran in the same order as the earlier heat until the 12th lap, and sudd.enly Hol-mes dropped out. Bollman went on to take the victory, with Minnier second, and Ken Schertzer, new to this venue, in third. He said "It went good - I had a good time." Bollman got the weekend win, saying "It was a blast! I love it!"" He's done some work on his shocks since the last ·time he was here and it made a difference. Minni-er was second, with Schertz-er third for the weekend. Holmes, with a DNF, was fourth. He' d had a "tiny pinhole" in his radiator be-fore the first heat started, and he said he didn't think it would cause him any trouble. He was wrong -he said the radiator "finally went. -oh well." The next Short Course event will be on November 7th, and since it's the last of the series, it should be a no holds barred kind _of day. It'll be fun to watch. With any luck the fall storms will have so that it's not so dusty. · ~ PINCH . BBBBEB •". KENWOOD !:l:t Ii UNIBAll t:UPB l·Cll BY HIIClll#I February 2010 '3. ....6 .. Page 19

MTEG AT THE. ROSE BOWL· 1986 Mazda Takes First By Homer Eubanks Photos: Trackside Photo It came up roses at the Rose Bowl for Glenn Harris and the Mazda Team. Harris led the Grand National truck main event fro flag to flag, holding off the top stars in the sport for his first stadium truck win. History was made May 3 at 40,000 spectators enjoyed the this type of action later in the the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, off road extravaganza which season. California. Mickey Thompson brings every form of off road The Rose Bowl off road brought his off rqad show machinery into one location to track was constructed so the there, and it was the first take on a "chunk of Baja." This motorcycles could run the time in nearly 40 years that round, Thompson invited the track backwards. Due to the cars had raced in the rose 250cc professional Motocross space available on the field, Bowl. Mid get racers were riders to compete as an added a football field and nothing the former attraction back attraction. From the crowds more, the track was the tightest when. Last month, more than reaction, we may see more of design yet. Most of the drivers Page 30 February 2010 just said, "Oh it's tight, but challenging." There was plenty of passing during the races, so one couldn't complain of it being impossible to pass, but several traffic jams would attest to its tightness. The main event of the evening was the Grand National Sport Trucks. Glen Harris, in his factory Mazda B2000 led the race from his pole position all the way to the finish. On Press Day, I got a chance to ride with Harris, and believe me, these trucks are better than any "E Ticket" ride around. The passenger seating accommqdations on the factory Mazda were designed for a right legged amputee, so I had to cross my legs like a pretzel. Once belted in, Harris jammed the Mazda in second and off we wen·t. On the first jump, I noticed a few clouds hanging over the rose Bowl, then a bunch of seats, then the hydro barriers lining the course just before 1Harris threw it into the first switchback. Just like any thrill seeking ride, my four laps were over, leaving me wanting more. The crew came and pried my hands and legs from the Mazda, but the grin stayed on my face for days. Glenn Harris took over the factory ride a couple of years. ago, and this was his first Grand National main event victory. After his win, Harris was asked which of the stadium tracks he preferred, and his reply was, "The Rose Bowl, of course!" . Harris haq to fight Steve'' Millen for the lead on several occasions during the race. One reporter asked Glenn if he used the tight course to his advantage, and Harris replied, "Let's say I used all of the track available to keep my lead." Glenn was referring to the time when Millen nosed his Toyota alongside the Mazda in an attempt to squeeze Harris· out in the next corner. Harris quickly shut the door on Millen by pulling over and· not allowing Millen the needed space. The race did not start out to be between Harris and Millen. As the trucks lined up, it was the sixth fastest qualifier, Harris, on the pole, and next to him was the fastest qualifier, Jeff Huber in his All Americ_an Ford Ranger. Behind them were the Toyotas of Ivan Stewart and points leader Steve Millen, so Harris had his work cut out for him from the start. When the green flag went up it was Harris who jumped out front. Huber had troubles in the first switchback and slowed the pack, giving the Mazda a little breathing room. Ivan Stewart found his way around the congestion for second and Steve Millen took the third spot ahead of his brother Rod Millen in the other Mazda. Harris had a· fairly comfortable lead as the two Toyotas battled for second Dusty Times 7

Roger Mears, the 1985 class champion, has been plagues with mechanical difficulties this year and again had to drop from the fray on lap 5.

Earlier in the Trophy Dash, it was Rod Millen who made his way around the bunched up turn one crowd to take the lead. Jeff Huber thought he had a problem with the Ranger's engine while running second, and he slowed as Steve Millen charged past, only to roll the Toyota. Sherman Balch took over second place and Huber held on to finish third. Rod Millen scored his first off road stadium victory in the Trophy Dash. In the first heat race it was all Ivan Stewart. He came from the front row starting position and went all the way for the win. Walker Evans brought out his new Dodge D-50 and flew into second place. But, By the eighth lap Harris felt the pressure from Steve Millen, who was trying every trick in the book to work his way around the Mazda. Steve has dominated this season with three main event wins and he was looking for win number 4. The tight Rose Bowl course was to the Mazda's advantage, since the more Ivan Stewart had clear sailing in the Toyota in the first truck heat race, and won the dash and took a close third in the hectic main event.

Roger Mears and Sherman Balch brought their Nissans across in third and fourth. Desert ace Rob Tolleson does just as well in the stadium, he won both the 1/2-1600 heat and main event in very close quarters. Sticking with a 1/ 2-1600 two seater, Chris Bowen fought for the lead all the way, here side by side with the winner, and second in the main. In the Super 1600 action, better known a-s Class 10, it was Brad Castle who qualified fastest around the tight Rose Bowl track. But, when the green flag flew in the Trophy Dash, it was second place qualifier Jimmy Nichols who took the lead. Nichols had third fastest qualifier Larry Noel on his tail the whole Evans came down the back straight on lap 3, and when he threw the Dodge sideways, to make the 180 degree turn,. he got too much of a bite in the soft dirt and he rolled his new truck. This gave Stewart an even bigger lead as Rod Millen had to slow to get past Evans. During the slow down, Jeff Huber pulled right up on the tail of Millen's Mazda, and the battle began for second place. After --e lot of elbowing by both drivers, Huber found a way around on the last lap to finish second. Rod Millen had to settle for third, ahead of Joey Moore.

Nichols went on for the win with Noel a ·very close second, ahead of Mike Withers·. ln the first Super 1600 heat race, it was Larr y R ag land who got off the line first, with Marty Coyne second, ahead of Brad Castle. On the second lap, Coyne rolled and this put Castle in second. On the next lap there was a three car drive up and over, and the whole thing happened so fast it was tough to identify all the cars. It looked like Eric Arras drove over some hay bales trying to get inside Brad Castle and he drove up on top of Castle's Raceco. Castle didn't let .off, and he towed the Chenowth down the track until they both ran over another car.

Leisk was second and Ross Pederson was third. Max Razo, better known for his fancy posters perhaps, had a good run to third in his Class 10 heat, driving the always tidy Chenowth Magnum. Colorado racer Dale Calhoun led the Ultrastock main event from the green to lap 7, then smoke from the engine stopped him on the track. In the second mo to Larry Broo ks took advantage o f early leader Billy Frank's misfortune; as he and Brian Myerscough battled for the lead, they both fell, which left Brooks with clear sailing to the finish line. Doug Dubach was second, Frank recovered for third and Myerscough was fourth-. full field. Another Elrod, Wes, had his Hi-Jumper out front eady, with both Rob Tolleson, Mirage and Chris Bowen, 2 seater, giving him a hefty challenge. Elrod held his lead, Bowen got close, made the pass, but then rolled, ending that .challenge. This gave Rob Tolleson a clear shot at Elrod, and the pair ran side by side here and there before Tolleson made the pass. Tolleson hung on for the win, with Wes Elrod chasing him and Rick Boyer was third. Bowen recovered to take fourth. For unknown reasons, the Ultrastocks and the ½-1600's were combined into one main event, putting 22 cars on a track that is crowded with 15 starters. Even though the classes started in different waves, the crowded situation caused the two classes to soon begin running over one another, creating havoc. As one group would get straightened out, another encounter would stop them again down course. This blockage strung out the field and Dale Calhoun was the most fortunate in the Ultrastock group, and got a lead early in the game. Greg George also missed most of the confusion and ran second, with Craig Durfee a strong third. Rob Tolleson decided not to play bumper cars and pulled around all the trouble, but Chris Bowen saw the same hole and followed him into second, and Wes Elrod held third in the 1600 war. On lap 7 Calhoun saw his lead go up in a puff of smoke as his ailing engine let go. Greg George was right there to take over number 1 spot in the Toyota, and cars were stuck in the barriers all over the course, which was blocked somewhere almost every lap. Tim Maples slid into second as Durfee had a flash fire in his Pontiac. At the flag, only three Ultrastocks were in motion, Greg George took the victory, followed by Tim Maples and Vince Tjelmeland. · Rob Tolleson and Chris Bowen had a super battle in the 1600 section, although traffic played a big part in this action. At one point, Tolleson drove over the barrier around a stalled bunch of Ultrastocks to keep Bowen at bay and Rob won the race by inches over Chris. Wes Elrod took third n this class, just ahead of Rick Boyer and Carl Asterino was fifth.

Johnson, with a big lead, entertained the crowd by taking the double jump with one hand as he waved in mid air. Liesk held second until the last lap, when he went over the handlebars after a hard landing. Johnson again dazzled the crowd at the checkered flag as he took the jump and waved with both hands.

We can even change your diapers if need be to keep you going. Detailing your race toy was an option this year to stay "Ice Clean" while racing. Colie P9tter's team got a champion-ship because the bike flew like the wind with BajaPits as the wind. Rock On!!! Colie Potter, a seasoned racer that will also coach you to the finish line. As seen at Mike's Sky Ranch The world of racers, crews and fans call it the interna-tional granddaddy of all desert races, 31 HOURS of NON STOP, Not for Sissies, Not for Crybabies, Not for Mommas boys, Not for Goof-offs, Not for Whimps, Not your Fathers Oldsmobile either. The 42nd annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 ripped off last weekend in Baja California, Mexico with more than an estimated quar-ter-million fans cheering on the many bike, quad, buggy and truck teams competing in the grueling event. Fans watched the carnage and glory as 328 starters na:vigated the 67 3-mile course. Of those, 185 finished for the sixth-highest percentage in the event's history. Everyone that starts the race thinks it's going to be an easy race with no drama, well after a few miles into the Baja, the seri-ous drama starts. The finishing percentage this year was a very solid 56.4 percent considering the extreme dusty conditions and the unique ruggedness of the course. Chupacabra made sure that only the strong sur-vived!!! HA HA!! BajaPits was there with 360 Dusty Times pairs of hands at 16 pits set at 40 mile intervals, massive crowds reaching over 250,000 spread out along the rugged course that traveled from Ensenada to Pit Captain Pete Davis and Jesse Miller - BAJA PITS #l and #16 Ojos Negros, southeast down to BAJA PITS #2 with Dave Watkins & Carl Augustine, #3 Cohobuzo Jct. with Nacho's crew #4 Saldania by Manuel Morales & Randy Rodguez, #5 & 10 at Borego Jct. with presi-dent Carlos Orozco and the Lo-cos Mocos team then South to Morelia Jct BAJA PITS #6 with Ray G6mez and the Bob Land Crew, #7 Bill Rehnquist & Mike Lund then down through the legendary Matomi Wash to #8 Ray Files and NASA Level Welder Karl LaPinska, #9 was Seasoned Pit Capt.

Pete, who only moves forward in life gets you motivated to finish. Thanks Pete for all that you have done for all of us racers who covered much of the northern half of the majestic Baja Cali-fornia peninsula to and from Ensenada. And for sure every-one that raced was in pain after trying to beat the 2009 BAJA 1000 terrain. As the final checkered flag dropped Saturday night for the last of 185 official finishers in the 42nd annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, it was obvious that another memorable and color-ful chapter had been added to the legacy of this popular desert race in the magnificent Baja California peninsula. The course this year was very tough on any one that was in-sane enough to race it. The San Felipe Loop put many racers out of the event as their mo, tors and tranny's fried from the intense torture of the terrain. OUCH!!! As the components of the vehicles cried in pain as rocks were smashed into and tires blew while trying to get through the summit. Not even the pro's could have foreseen the evil that laid their way to get to the finish line. But if you pitted with BajaPits, you at least had a chance to get to the Fin-ish Line in one piece. The God Father of the BajaPits Carlos Orozco is the only Man in the world that has the vision to set up pits in remote areas of BAJA that not even the Federales will enter. Zombies, Jiggy Big-gie·s, Whooploops, ZappyZigs, Three Legged Wicked Things, Joblobs, Oinksters, Gigabits, Holy Ghosts, Chickenwacs, Obieplots, Gliggs and Chupaca-bra sightings made many racers crash and burn to ruin their desire to finish just another one more mile of pure HELL!!! HA HAHA HA HA HA HA. Many rac-ers where seen sleeping next to camp fires below Mike's Sky Ranch in the middle of the night waiting for the sun to rise in sub freezing tempera-tures. Not a good sight to see as #297X observed and reported in as radio operators kept busy with data for the worst. And, as crazy and insane for most BAJA racers, #297X Ken "Baja Turtle" Kosiorek RODE his Street Legal 2002 Honda XR650R to the race with Baja enthusiast rider Ninja Lena on her XR650L, Ken then SO-LO ED the race for 30 hours and 6 minutes to finish his sec-ond IRON MAN and then rode the race bike home. BajaPits/LOCOS MOCOS/ NINJA LENA and it's crews kept Ken motivated to finish with Fuel, Water, Cookies, Do-nuts, Turkey Sandwiches and other Baja Foods. You can see the Bike on display at Fun Bike Center in San Diego in the dirt raced mode. is also a cool website to look at. Former Motocross and Su-percross great, Rick Johnson, continued his love affair with Baja nailing third overall in the four-wheel divisions, and he too felt the physical abuse. "This course was brutal," ·he said. "There are a lot of easier Baja 1000 courses to La Paz than this one. It seemed like every edge was square. It was very tough. I was fight-ing the wheel at times. The steering was hard to hold in many spots ... To win here in trophy trucks, you have to have a perfect day. With 30-some trucks, there is somebody out there who is going to have that perfect day. It wasn't perfect for us but it was a pretty good day. We'll take third." That was the gist of most of the reports we heard through out the whole HELL and back race. The worst conditions ever to be raced in BAJA. With all time. 56% finish rate, what would you do if you had the balls to race the BAJA 1000. All we know now is that the ones that stayed home are still alive to talk about the nastiest race in the world. The ones that's raced will be in recovery for a few weeks. "This was also a banner day for Team General Tire. The Baja 1000 is the marquee event of the desert racing season, and to have multiple teams on the podium is a stellar accom-plishment," said Travis Roffler, director of marketing, General Tire. "What makes this an even sweeter victory is that this is just General Tire's second sea-son since its return to desert competition, so Rick's results --not just in this race, but all season long --really validate everything we've been working toward the past two seasons. We are very proud of Team General Tire drivers and all they have· accomplished this year!" February 2010 Battling one of the toughest courses to date, Team General Tire captured multiple podium finishes in Trophy Truck, Class 6, Class 7sx, Class 9 and Class 3, at the 2009 Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, which hailed the re-turn of Ivan "Ironman" Stewart to Baja racing. One of the highlights of the race was Ivan "Ironman" Stew-art's return to the Baja 1000, . to race the new Toyota 4Run-ner in Clas~ 760. The Toyota 4Runner was equipped with the General Grabber Competition tires. Stewart and his team were able to grab the 2nd place finish in the Stock Mini Class thanks to some, igniting a: media frenzy around their completion at the finish line. The battle for the overall motorcycle victory marked the SCORE Baja racing rekindling of one of its greatest rivalries as Kawasaki returned with a factory-supported team for the first time since 1995 to bat-tle against the Honda factory- . supported racers. In the end, Honda defeated Kawasaki by just one minute, 57 seconds, although the No. lX Kawasaki KX450 team led by former two-time Honda race winner Robby Bell, Sun City, Calif., finished -first physically in the demand-ing race but lost on corrected time.

Box 1007 Atwood, Calif. 92811 Another very interesting point in the Baja 1000 is that all entrants pay a relatively small entrance fee (ranging between $950 and $1300)and receive very small prize money for winning in their class or overall. This is a race for the glory and bragging rights and not for the money. While there are many Trophy trucks and unlimited classes with~ very expensive vehicles others still run the course in class 11 which is the older Volk-swagen "Bugs" that are allowed only limited modifications and really are closer to the original Baja racers; as it is just amazing that these bugs even finished the course in the allotted time limit; 31 hours this year. This race also featured the prestigious Sal Fish SCORE Iron Rider awards presented to each motorcycle or ATV rider who completes the course within the time limit while riding solo. 34 individuals of-ficially declared that they were attempting to complete the course riding solo and 10 of them finished within the time limit to earn the special award, The fastest solo rider was Ron Wilson, who rode in Class 30 for riders over 30 years old, finishing second in class in a penalty-free time of 18:29: 19 on a Honda CRF450X. Now that's fast!!!! Doug McCrady #265X made it to the finish line with just 52 seconds left on the clock to also get his FIRST Iron Rider Award and thanks to his coach Jeneane who was up all night to make sure he made it to the finish line on time and gave Doug the Checkered Flag as he crossed the finish line. Doug's first try at a Baja 1000 and he made it. Good Job to our new Iron Man Friend. The Baja 1000 is a non-stop race with pit crews stationed in different 1,laces depending on the race teams and while they in most cases they do change out drivers there are some that have attempted and completed the race as solo pilots (drivers) which is very impressive con-sidering this race runs through the night and on into the next day. One of the most famous drivers for driving solo is "Iron Man Stewart" who has run the race in a trophy truck. One other that became famous with making of the movie "Dust to Glory" was a stuntman known as "Mouse", who ran the entire course to solo on a motorcycle! If you want to see more about this race this DVD "Dust to Glory" will really show you a lot more of what the Baja 1000 is all about. The official name of the race is the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 due to the sponsorship for many years by Tecate beer and the race promoter and organiz-ers of SCORE headed up by the now very famous Sal Fish that has dedicated his life to this race; working year round to promote, organize and create a different course every year. Each year there are reports of spectators sabotaging or booby-trapping the course by dig-ging holes, .blocking river flow, fallen trees, barbed wire at neck level to cut off your head, nails, mountain lions, snow, dead cows across the race path, rot-ten meat,· .etectric lines ripped from power lines to shock you or burying and hiding obstacles. Racers are warned to beware of large crowds of spectators in remote parts of the course since it may indicate hidden traps or obstacle changes. Many of the booby traps are not cre-ated to intentionally injure the contestants but are created by the local spectators as jumps or obstacles for spectator enter-tainment. Our #297X reports he hit a indent in the smooth dry lake bed at 105mph and the jolt lifted the gas tank enough to separate the fuel line from the carburator. Thus the bike stopped running and when Ken looked for the problem he freaked out to see fuel spill-' ing on the HOT exhaust pipe. Oh!!!!!!! #@#$%. #297X got off Continued on page 40 Page 39

the bike, replaced the fuel line and got that XR650R back up to 105mph to finish that fast section, OMG!!!! After complete review of the data tracking devices used by each vehicle in the race and with time penalties assessed accordingly for course devia-tions and/or speeding on the brief pavement sections used as part of the race course, the results were declared official· by SCORE International of-ficials at 6 a.m. on Sunday morning. This year's Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 desert race will be televised on a delayed basis as a one-hour NBC Sports special, in association with SCORE and Aura360, for the sixth consecutive year. It is scheduled to air on NBC at 2 p.m. (EST) on Saturday, Dec. 19 on the NBC Television Network. It will also air on a delayed basis outside of the U.S. on ESPN International. So all and all it sure was a challenging race for the ones who just got to the starting line and al.l we can say is good luck for next years race since it's a run to La Paz. The Pink Hummer, Loco Mocos, BajaPits, Sal Fish, Ninja Lena, Castro-Limon, Baja Rudy, Tim Morton and General Tire Mike Horner Race Team all want to thank everyone that made this race possible and the life long friendship we are honored to experience. Sr Chupacabra and Chili Bean Page 40 Blueribbon Coalition, Inc. Recreation Coalition Files Brief In Ongoing Roadless Lawsuit POCATELLO, ID (January 5) - A coalition of recreation advocacy groups filed• an Am-icus Curiae brief in the 10th District Court of Appeals related to the 2001 Roadless Rule this week, marking over a decade of involvement in the controversial issue. The recre-ation groups include the Blue-Ribbon Coalition (BRC), Cali-fornia Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs ("CA4WDC"), United Four Wheel Drive As-sociations (UFWDA) and the American Council of Snow-mobile Associations (ACSA). Environme·ntal activists are appealing a 2008 decision by U.S. District Court of Wyo-ming Judge Clarence Brim-mer declaring the Clinton era Roadless Rule illegal. That ruling came in a case brought by the State of Wyoming in 2007, which paralleled an ear-lier complaint filed by Wyo-ming in 2001. Brimmer's 2008 decision minced few words, con~luding the 2001 Rule "was driven by political haste and evidenced pro forma com-,pliance with" environmental laws, using descriptors such as "flagrant" and "cavalier" in characterizing the "unequivo-cal" violations. Brian Hawthorne, BRC's Public Lands Policy Director, said, "With millions of acres of National Forests suscep-tible to disease and wildfire, it should be evident that a top-down, one-size-fits-all manage-ment program should never be the answer. Each roadless area is uniq·ue, and local con-ditions should be take.n into consideration when actively managing these lands." "This marks a decade of in-volvement in the Roadless is-sue.,'' said Greg Mumm, Execu-tive Director of BRC. "Force-feeding a 'hands-off policy to manage Roadless Areas, like congressionally designated Wilderness, has been a goal of -the preservationist groups for some time. BRC is proud to have protected recreational ac-cess to these lands and we are committed to continue this important effort." Noting the U.S. Forest Ser-vice will be revising the regu-lations for pre.paring Forest Plans, Paul Turcke, the at-torney for the recreational groups, observed in their brief that "our Nation's treasured forest lands must be actively and effectively managed. Such management necessitates de-tailed, site-by-site analysis; not politically convenient tem-plates. That improper proce-dural means advance an agen-da of less rather than more active human presence is of · little legal import. This Court should seize the· opportunity to place the 2001 Roadless Rule alongside the 2005 State Petitions Rule and similar mis-placed efforts to manage our National Forests via election cycle emanations from the DC beltway, and to begin a return co professionally-driven and project-focused management that our forests and citizens deserve." The Recreation group's filing can be found online. Learn. more about the• history of the Road less Rule and latest updates on www.sharetrails. org. Court Orders CLOSURE of State Park; Ignores Collaborative Process LIVERMORE, CA (De-cember· 15) -In a recent court action, a judge in Alameda County has ordered a closure of one of California's State Parks. Last week, Judge Frank Roesch ordered the closure of Carnegie State Vehicle Recreation Area (SVRA) based on his own in-terpretation of the appropriate application of water quality standards. Despite years of working with regulatory agencies to ad-TTBEAOLOCK SIMULA.TEO B.L.. VW BEAOLOCK 1 SX 1 2 VW BEAC>LOCK February 2010 NON BEAOLOCK BEAOLOCK dress issues surrounding water quality in the Corral Hollow Watershed, Judge Roesch or-dered the park, located in the hills east of Livermore, closed until State Parks files and re-ceives approval of or a waiver for a report of waste discharge from the Central Valley Re-gional Water Quality Control Board. This approval process could take months. The order stems from a com-plaint filed by Public Employees for Environmental Responsi-bility (PEER) and the Califor-nia Sportfishing Protection Alliance. The group's com-plaint alleged OHV activities at -Carnegie SVRA are causing discharge to enter Corral Hol-low Creek, which flows through the park. The creek-only runs 4 to 6 weeks a year, and after leaving the park eventually runs out into an agriculture field and disappears into the ground. "If regulatory agencies are satisfied with what the park has been doing, why does this judge in Alameda think he knows better than the environmental professionals?," asked Dave Pickett, President of Ameri-can Motorcyclist Association District 36 and member of the Carnegie OHV Taskforce. "This is an attempt by special interests groups to highjack last-ing collaborative solutions, and deny family recreation enjoyed by over a 100,000 visitors to this park annually. This is just flat wrong!" For years, staff from ·Carn-egie has been working with Dusty Times

the Regional Water Board and nearby property owners to ad-dress water quality issues in Corral Hollow Creek, which runs through the State Park. In 2004, State Parks initiated. a watershed assessment, paid for with OHV user fees, to di-agnose potential issues in the watershed and design fixes. Regulatory agencies together with State Parks are identifying solutions to address problems. "We have been working with the park to address the hill climbs in Carnegie, which have been problematic, as well as making sure the vehicles are out of the creek. But we have no control over Hetch Hetchy, who illegally performed work in the creek bed, or the munitions testing facility," said Pickett, referring to the activities of neighbors of the park. "It is troubling when the OHV com-munity wants to work within the system and is now taking all the blame." According to Don Amador, Western Representative for the BlueRibbon Coalition and fel-low member of the Carnegie Taskforce, "If the park is forced to close, more than 100,000 park visitors will be displaced. The closure will impact other OHV recreation areas, causing overcrowding and unantici-pated effects from the overload. The closure will not hasten bet-ter water quality, but is just an-other example of the Plaintiffs grandstanding and misusing environmental law to enact a political agenda that is anti-recreation and anti-park." "Californians would be bet-ter served if PEER extended the hand of partnership to legiti-mately address the issue, rather than using the court system to close a park at a time when residents have been fighting so hard to keep State Parks open. This court decision is deeply troubling on any number of lev-els," Amador concludes ... ### The BlueRibbon Coalition is a national (non-profit) trail-saving group that represents over 600,000 recreationists na-tionwide The Combined Fed-eral Campaign (CFC) season is beginning.

OFFICIAL CONGRES-SIONAL DESIGNATIONS AS OHV AREAS. On December 21, 2009 U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein in-troduced the California Desert Protection Act of 2010. We ap-plaud Senator Feinstein and her staff for taking a collaborative approach on this piece of legisla-tion. A variety of stakeholders, including off-roaders, environ-mentalists, and local residents, were consulted early on in the process.-This bill appears to protect long standing recreation areas, sensitive desert lands, and allows for renewable energy de-velopment. ORBA has not had a chance to fully analyze the bill, so we cannot give it our endorse-ment, but we are supportive of the balanced approach it seems to take. ### ORBA is a national trade as-sociation composed of off-road related businesses united to promote common goals that support the prosperity and growth of the off-road industry.
