Trail Notes ... SCORE PRIMM -Southern California's second-generation desert racer Shawn Croll has drawn the first starting position in the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck division in the computerized drawing for starting positions for next month's 15th Annual SCORE Las Vegas Terrible's Primm 300 desert race. Round 4 of the five-race 2010 SCORE Desert Series will be held Sept. 10-12 in Primm, Nv. Part of the world's foremost desert racing series, the SCORE Las Vegas Terrible's Primm 300 will feature 21 Pro and 2 Sportsman classes for cars and trucks in Primm, located 45 miles south of Las Vegas at the California border. This year's starting grid is expected to reach nearly 125 vehicles. Late entries will be accepted up until race morning. A total of 27 SCORE Trophy-Trucks, the marquee SCORE racing division for high-tech, 850-horsepower unlimited production trucks entered in time for Saturday's drawing. NASCAR Cup team owner/driver and defending overall race and SCORE Trophy-Truck winner Robby Gordon is entered again this year. Gordo n , of Charlotte, N.C., who drives the No. 1 Team Gordon Chevy CK1500 SCORE Trophy-Truck as the reigning SCORE Overall point champion, is a two-time overall winner in this race, having won both the inaugural race in 1996 as well as last year's event. Among the entries in Class 1 is the international team of Germany's World Rally Championship veteran Armin Schwarz and Denmark's Martin Christensen, who lives in Escondido, Calif. Schwarz/Christensen have teamed up to win Class 1 in this race the last two consecutive years. They drew the seventh starting slot in Class 1, giving their BMW-powered Jimco No. 107 for this race. For the ninth consecutive year, the race will be split into two groups with the open wheel, slower truck and VW baja bug classes starting at 6 a.m. The featured SCORE Trophy-Truck division along with the unlimited Class 1 open-wheel desert race cars, will start at 1 p .m. One vehicle will start every 30 seconds in the elapsed-time race. The faster classes will be required to cover four laps of the 68.6-mile loop course to become official finishers within the seven-hour time limit. Pre-race festivities on Friday, Sept. 10, for the SCORE Las Vegas Terrible's Primm 300, including tech and contingency and the SCORE Manufacturer's Midway, will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. behind Buffalo Bill's Resort. The post-race awards celebration will be held at 10 a.m. on Sunday (Sept. 12) in the conference center at Terrible's Primm Valley Resort.

The latest short course races under the direction ofTORC as well as LOORS were very similar in many aspects. Here are some of the similarities from Oshkosh and Glen Helen. 1. -Both were very short tracks -each were approximately .8 mile in length. 2. -Both were held at night. 3 . -Both had overflow crowds. 4. -Both had the front gate turning customers away. 5. -Both had incredible racing, with positive feedback from racers as well as fans. 6. -Both were promoted properly to get the fans to the track. 7. -Both had new faces in the sport land on the podium. 8. -Both had the largest Sportsman racer turnout of the year for their respective series. 9. -Both venues didn't have the largest fan turnout of the year, but the energy in the crowd sure made it seem like they were. 10. -Both venues has some missed steps, but their future is very bright. I could go on and on, but my point is if the facility is Page& CORVA 1500 WEST EL CAMINO, Sum 352 SACRAMENTO, CA 95833 1-800-42 CORVA Exr 42 Fax (818) 957-4435 CRS CALIFORNIA RALLY SERIES <www, D&T PROMOTIONS DAVE VAN DEREN 2405 BAKER AVE.

I'm from the Midwest, but have been a spectator at my share of West Coast short-course events. Glen Helen in many respects is like Crandon West. The property is iconic, • in the Motocross world as well as in the short course world. I remember wanting to go to the Glen Helen and race against the Class 10 (today's Super Buggy) elite. (Greg George, Glen Harris, Jerry Whelchel, the Oilman's, and others but we never made the trek. Fortunately in the 70s & 80s they came back my way to places like Lake Geneva and Montreal). Now with past and present stars of Supercross, Motocross, Freestyle, and Super Moto racing with four wheels under them at Glen Helen & Oshkosh, it brings together today's action sports heros with yesterday's superheros as they take on the stars of short course like Huseman, the Greaves, Renezeder, Menzies, the George's, & others. Lucas Oil brought all of them together to the right location and barn! an event many will talk about for years to come. The same thing happened at the TORC Oshkosh event, the event was held in the Fox Valley of eastern Wisconsin. The population base for the area that runs from Fond du Lac north to Green Bay, approximately 700,000. The majority of the MORR membership/TORC Sportsman competitors come from this area. The promoters of the event are also residents of the valley and off-road racers. The right promotional work was done via television, radio, and at several types of motorsports events leading up to the weekend. It was billed as the event your came watch today's superheros in the PRO division(Greaves,RJ, McGrath, Huseman, Douglas, etc) and the stars of tomorrow (Gerald, Vanden Huevel,Greaves, Dorr, etc.) in the Sportsman classes. All the hard work paid off. Now PRO racers want two weekends of racing in Oshkosh for 2011. These events were more like Mickey Thompson's vision of off-road racing. -Create short tracks with the fans right on top of the action. • The competition is a combination of top racers in other forms of motorsports as well as off-road racing's home-grown talent competing at the highest level. • Then go out and promote this aspect so motorsports fans outside of th._e off-road community pay for the price of admission. What was different with Glen Helen and Oskhosh was the venue, they aren't the cavernous stadiums of stick and ball sports. These are locations synonymous with off-road racing, where 5,000 fans created the atmosphere of a crowd three times it size.On the future, I'm pretty sure both will have seating for 15,000). I don't know if either sanctioning body had Mickey Thompson's Off-Road Gran Prix in mind when creating events at these locations, but looking back at some of the events' aspects, Mickey's short-course torch is still burning strong. B ITD VEGAS To RENO -The top 10 finishers in the Best In The Desert Vegas To Reno Race were: 1st in Class 1400, 1st Overall Rick D Johnson, 2nd Overall, 1st in Class 1500 Chris Kemp, 2nd in Class 1400 Roger Norman, 2nd in Class 1500 Steve Croll, 3rd in Class 1500 Gustavo Vildosola Jr., 3rd in Class 1400 Mark Weyrich, 4th in Class 1400 Marc Ewing, 5th in Class 1400 Jason Voss, 4th in Class 1500 TJ Flores and 6th in Class 1400 Bryce Menzies.

MDR CATASTROPHE -It was bound to happen · eventually, hundreds of thousands of miles are raced every year on BLM controlled land without so much as a scratch to a human being. Race cars and trucks suffer all sorts of accidents with the terrain and each other: only mechanical damage, nobody hurt. This accident was a tragedy that could have been avoided. That many people,"that close to the race course is an invitation to disaster. And it happened, the truck driver, having a limited space to proceed in, due to the incursion of the spectators had little or no room to maneuver and .................. THE WORST HAPPENED! It is tragic that so many of these young people were killed and injured. Our hearts go out to the families of the fallen and also to the MOR folks, the BLM and all those associated with the off road racing community. Also, keep a good thought for the driver who will have to live with the event forever. Racing is a tradition in this country, off road racing i§ a large part of the pie. We have been racing in the desert for many, many years, almost always without problems. Self restraint is necessary for the spectator, stay 100 feet back from the race course, don't try to be a hero, enjoy your time in the desert and safely head for home when the racing is done. Ed.

AT GLEN HELEN Maccachren Takes TWO Wins By Homer Eubanks Photos: Trackside Photo In the Pro 2 Unlimited races at Glen Helen it was Rob MacCachren taking the win both days, seen here nicely airborne. Short Course racing comes home. Short Course racing came home to Southern California's Glen Hel-en Raceway to the enjoyment of many short course fans. In fact there were more fans than the promoter had seats for-a lot more. After paying for a seat to watch America's finest short course rac-ers, one would think the fans would be a little preturbed to have to stand hour after hour, but by judging the standing room only crowds that followed on Sunday it is apparent this hardy fan base will endure the discomfort to watch the best form of racing that America has to offer. The new facility is another testa-ment to Lucas Oil's commitment to short course racing. Earlier this year the promoter had negotitation problems with a former promoter and had to find (in Las Vegas) and erect a new faciltiy. Having accom-plished that mission in only three weeks it was a surprise that they had under estimated not only the fan count but also built a .8-mile track instead of the customary 1-mile. To the naked eye it appears there is plenty of open space surrounding the facility. Ok, enough said about what they didn't do right, now let me tell you what they did perfect, and that was provide a demanding track that provided some exciting short course racing action that was desperatly needed in Southen California. Pro 4 Unlimited Race nine of the series got off with a bang as 12 Pro 4 Unlimited trucks had no problem negoiating the .8-mile racecourse at speed. The driver that caught the fans eye was none other than fast qualifier Rick Huseman. Starting from row three Huseman quickly established him-self settling into the lead. Michael Johnson, while in third, got up on two wheels allowing Kyle LeDuc to to take the position. LeDuc then excited the fans by rolling over, but landed rubber side down, to retain his position. To add to the fans excitement Johnson rolled in turn five and caught fire but was able to restart. LeDuc found an opening around Adrain Cenni for second and soon after Huseman got his Pro 4 up on two wheels allowing Leduc to drive into the lead. A lap later Huseman snuck instide of LeDuc in turn four to regain the lead. The white flag came out and Kyle LeDuc was the big winner in Pro 4 Unlimited in the Sunday fracas, Kyle was the silver medal winner in the Saturday affair. Rick Huseman took the win in the Pro 4 Unlimited on Saturday, Rick finished in second place in the Sunday race. Huseman had pulled a little breath-ing room over LeDuc. That is until the last turn when LeDuc powered through the inside attempting the steal the show but Huseman held , on for an exciting win. On Sunday Kyle LeDuc stood atop the podium saying, :the track was probably the most rutted Pro 4 track he had raced on, as there was carnage everywhere." To get on the podium LeDuc had carried the race momentum ~y passing his way from his mid pack starting spot. Eric Barron took advantage of his front row spot to take the early lead but LeDuc quickly found his way to the front. Behind LeDuc was Rick Huseman and Adrian Cenni. Josh Merrill got up on his top and had to be towed off. Huseman had to run into the pits with a rear flat and Carl Renezeder moved up with the leaders. Soon after the mid race yellow Cenni's truck started smok-ing and soon slowed on course. An-other yellow cmae out and LeDuc's four second. lead diminished with Renezeder second and Michael Johnson third. Another yellow came out as Curt LeDuc rolled in turn three and Cenni and Travis Coyne were seen headed to the pits. Once the action wound up again LeDuc had Renezeder pressing his every move and Michael John~on and Huseman tangled while run-ning third and fourth.

RobercNaughton had moved in front of Menzies and had him pressuring his every move as well. Renezeder came through the rough section before turn three shadowing Adler. Renezeder dou-bled into turn three and nosed under the tail of Adler, rolling him over. On the next lap Renezeder was black flagged. Renezder later said he couldn't stop and seeing that his rear brakes were the only one glowing bright red it is under-standable. Adler however, was out of the race.

Daniel Sardo and Marc Marti took second place honors in Bulgaria, they are seen here really diggin' in at speed. including 11 World Rally Cars and five Super 2000s with t_he support championships represented in Bulgaria by the Junior series, the third of six rounds, from here on all of which, except for gravel sec-tions in Catalunya, are to be run on asphalt stages. Ten of the 11 remaining contend_ers in the series were entered here, the only missing driver and one of the joint leaders coming to this round, was Aaron Burkart. Rookie championship leader Harry Hunt had his Fiesta R2 again while Mathieu Arzeno had graduated from his R2 Citroen to a Super 1600. This was Karl Kruuda's first ever asphalt JWRC event (the recent Ypres Rally had been his first ever asphalt event) while Egoi Valdez was on his first asphalt rally in a· two-wheel drive car. Eyvind Brynildsen, however, was entered as a non champion-ship driver in his Rene Georges Skoda. Jean-Marie Cuoq, due to drive a Peugeot 307WRC did not appear. Four Bulgarian drivers entered the event on hearing that the rally also counted as a round of their national series, but then discovered that the homologation of their cars had expired for world championship purposes. Three transferred to an ad-hoc national event and one crew went home. The published entries con-firmed that PG Andersson had tak-en over the Stobart entry number six of Henning Solberg while only on the day that entries closed was Petter Solberg finally able to an-nounce his replacement codriver, following the unexpected retire-ment from the WRC of Phil Mills. This was 41 year Chris Patterson, for many recent years the codriver for Nasser Al Attiyah. Henning made his debut in a Fiesta S2000, one of four events he is to contest this year in this car. The Ceremo-nial Start was in the Iskar stadium in the nearby town of Samokov, 11km from Borovets and although originally the event was scheduled to finish on Saturday (in deference to a certain football match fixture elsewhere in the globe) in fact it finished at the orthodox time, early on Sunday afternoon. Shake-down was run over a short 2.6km course to the north of Kostenets, near the service park, and there was an ominous result as Citroens took the top five results, this time with Petter Solberg quickest ahead of Sordo, Ogier third and Loeb equal fourth with Raikkonen. The fastest Ford was Hirvonen 0.8 sec-onds down. 40 cars eventually took the start. There were two overriding thoughts. Firstly, Citroen had scored 1-2-3-4-5 for the second event running at Shakedown and it was recalled why Petter had made the decision at the end of 2009 to run Citroen rather than Ford - he said that the Citroens were better on asphalt, and that asphalt would be critical in the second half of the 2010 season. Secondly, was the weather. The Ceremonial Start was quite wet and the rains contin-ued in the mountains on and off through the night. Day 1 - 4 Stages -Asphalt - 118.68kms The surprise of the morning was the cold temperature. It had been raining overnight, and when the "ouvreurs" checked the course they reported a lot of wet patches, but interestingly these virtually all dried out very quickly. The first world rally in nine months on asphalt and quite an interesting event looked to be in store. Citroen and Ford had their own access to meteo forecasting, es-sential for last minute advice about tyre choices (two tyres were avail-able from Pirelli, harder and softer compounds) for when the cars left service, while the ouvreurs could warn the crews about the dirt and of water lying on the roads. For the first two stages (the first loop), overnight rain had increased the amount of water running down the hillside, across the road, though generally the stages were otherwise essentially dry. With each passing car, however, corner cutting had increased the amount of gravel and sand on the road surfaces. Rain Petter Solberg and Chris Patterson finished third overall in their Citroen C4. Citroen captured the first four places in the rally. was something not widely expect-ed. Forecasts for oppressively hot conditions were wide of the mark! The Citroen C4 WRCs were immediately in a class of their own. It had been ten long years since a marque had annexed the top five places in the results of a World rally but the way things started off, it looked like this might happen again. The first stage was wide and fast, some loved it (Loeb was fastest by eight seconds) others hated it (Wilson said he was completely ill at ease). All the top drivers, how-ever, had no worries about tyres, _all selected harder compounds, and Citroen personnel said there was another factor. One explained: "Loeb is very slow in the early mornings, but here the first stage did not start until 1000, so he was already wide awake!" Stage two was narrower and bumpier, but Loeb was nearly another six seconds faster than everyone. Petter Solberg was in his element as well, "It is the first time I have driven in earnest with another codriver so I am be-•ing careful, but I can say that Chris Patterson is brilliant!" Already on stage 2 he was second fastest. Ford were struggling. Mikko Hirvonen hoped that the earlier passes of cars in the morning would make the afternoon repeat stages bet-ter for him, "The afternoon will certainly be a different rally", even though the stages were exactly the same because the sand and stones were sure to proliferate the road. Jari-Matti Latvala was no happier, "My driving is more or less ok but the times aren't at all." Dani Sordo was going well in third place, ahead of Petter and Kimi Raikkonen while Hirvonen was the best non-Citroen, 41.6 seconds behind Loeb. PG Andersson was lying eighth, "I am going well, it is my first time working with ouv-reurs and it helps a lot!" He was 42 seconds ahead of his Stobart team-mate Matthew Wilson. Loeb continued his attack. "Yes, I attacked on the first run because · normally other drivers only start to attack on the second pass through the stages!" On the first stage of the afternoon Sebastien Ogier went off the road on stage 3, his codriver Julien Ingrassia explained, "It was a long left 3rd gear bend, but -unfor"tunately Sebastien thought I said 5th. We slid into a ditch but the people watching could not push us back again, so we decided to drive forward through some bushes and in that way regained the road. We lost about one min-ute and dropped from second to seventh. The big news, however, was an accident for Raikkonen, on stage four. He went off the road on a right-hander which opened and then tightened. There was not so much gravel on the road, but Raik-konen's car finished upside down against the trees and it took some while to extricate the crew. Raik-konen had decided to run with soft compound tyres, while all the other drivers used hard tyres. The team reported that the crew were unhurt. The Ford still persevered, but Hirvonen now faced a major decision -whether to completely change the set-up, or carry out a lot of small changes. Petter decided as it was allowed for him, as a non-manufacturer driver, to restart the afternoon on used tyres, but the plan back-fired because he had trouble with one tyre and had to fit a new one in its place. This left him going well on left hand bends but badly on right handed ones! Citroens now held the top three places overall at the end of the day, Loeb 28.1 seconds in front of teammate Sordo, once again com-missioned to be runner-up to the Master, and 38.0 seconds ahead of Petter. Wilson was still unhappy, "I missed testing for this event because I was testing the prototype Fiesta WRC, so came here with no recent experience of asphalt rallies. Andersson, however, was now in seventh place. There was a surprise in the Ju-nior category, Mathieu Arzeno was fastest on stage 1 and second fast-est on stage 2, he was very happy. His rivals had many problems. Kevin Abbring reckoned his Re-nault Clio R3 was too heavy uphill, too heavy downhill, so hopeless on the stages! Many JWRC drivers had brake problems. Hunt had his brakes suddenly and terminally disappear, "I am only alive because of the handbrake!" though he also punctured and had to change a wheel during a stage. Yeray Lemes was slowed by a broken fan which allowed the engine to overheat. Todor Slavov, Thierry Neuville and Hans Weijs all had bad experiences with brakes. In the afternoon all the JWRC runners were affected by Raikkonen's accident and only contested the long stage 3. Lemes touched a chain and broke the front right wing which flapped around in front of the windscreen for the rest of the stage. Weijs continued to have brake problems. Abbring was gradually making the Clio R3 work better. For Valdez what a celebration. In two seasons of WRC rallying this was the first time he had reached even the end of one day of competition! In the absence in Bulgaria of the PCWRC and SWRC cars, greater interest was focussed on the Class N4 cars, in which Henning led Dimitar Iliev by nearly a half min-ute, though Iliev like his compa-triot Krum Donchev were running Pirelli tyres on their S2000s for the first time. The Rene Georges team entered Eyvind Brynildsen as a non-championship competi-tor, but they made a bad first loop mistake, as they chose soft tyres. "Didn't work, after 7km each time the tyres went off", while fellow Dutch driver Denis Kuipers had suspension which was too soft and allowed the bodywork too much roll movement. This was rectified for the afternoon. Henning still led but Donchev abandoned with front differential trouble in his Peugeot. Day 2 - 5 Stages -Asphalt - 116.04kms There was rain in the hills, but crews arriving at Dolna Banya for the start anxiously wondered in which hills and how much. There were three stages in each loop, the third stage of the loop running more than three and a half hours after the final moment to choose the tyres - in conditions where the rains on the distant hills could be seen from the service park to be changing every few minutes. As they left for the stages Citroen were all found on soft compound tyres, while all the works Fords, thinking about the third stage of the loop, run much later in the morning, were on hard tyres -ex-cept for Wilson who used soft, but who carried two spare wheels, so that two wheels could have hard tyres if he had a change of mind. Of the three stages the first was a pure 27km hillclimb, starting close to 500 metres and rising to nearly Continued on page 16 Karl Kruuda and Martin Jarveoja drove their Suzuki Swift S1600 to Matthew Wilson and Scott Martin finished ninth overall in their Ford Mikko Hirvonen and Jarmo Lehtinen drove their Ford Focus RS to a a fifth place finish in JWRC in Bulgaria.

The second was an up-and-over stage (the latter half being the reverse of the stage used the day before) while the third was mostly hillclimb. Meanwhile 37 cars took the restart including the Peugeot of Donchev and remarkably the Citroen of Raikkonen, which had been only lightly damaged in his big off road excursion, despite being jammed upside down in a forest. It was dry when the crews ar-rived at the first stage but there was drifting low cloud for the last 7km. News from the stage was that it was raining. Citroens knew this when they left service, Fords did not as they had only placed their helpers to report on real-time conditions at high altitude points, where it stayed dry. The Citroens were well ahead, Hirvonen and Latvala were more than one min-ute slower and the private Peugeot 307WRC of the Hungarian driver Frigyes Turan was the fastest non-Citroen. Ogier, recovering from his off road problem on the first day, jumped up from sixth to fourth, so Citroens now held the top four places while Raikkonen, whose ten minute missed-stage penalty had dropped him to 26th out of 37 overnight, had already started to make up lost ground. He was however finding it hard to be motivated following his first day accident. He felt it was a shame the organisers had inter-rupted the stage, his codriver Kaj Lindstrom explained, "We pressed the OK button but the organis-ers never received our message. Mind you, we were sitting upside down in the car at the time ... " The second stage saw damp patches after earlier rain and Loeb going carefully and Sordo making the first stage win which had not gone to Loeb. Clear conditions on the third stage were the basis for Ford's decision to use hard compound tyres -but there were delays as crowds near the end of the stage were being marshalled, which caused anxiety at Ford and to Fords's chagrin the stage was eventually abandoned because the number of spectators caused secu-rity.concerns and.when the crews got back to the service park the in-quisition was on. It seemed Ford's disaster was not checking real-time weather conditions at various altitudes in the stages. Manpower shortages, in brief. Loeb was now a half minute in the lead and relaxed. "Our info from the ouvreurs had the prob-lem that conditions changed after they were able to drive through the stages, but we knew what was happening. Our information from the ouvreur was not right at all!" Sardo was settled once again, on his way to yet another second over-all placing while Petter Solberg was settling for third place. "No Page 16 time to play· heroics. I need that third place.this season!" Hirvonen was frustrated, "We had absolutely the right tyres for stage 7, and then it was cancelled!" while Wil-son felt that his two-way choice would also have worked well. The afternoon still caused wor-ries about tyres, even though the conditions seemed to be stabilis-ing. Leading drivers took a variety of tyre combinations: Loeb and Raikkonen, suspicious that rain might return at the end of the afternoon had soft, which was wrong, Petter and the Fords had hards, with Ogier and Sardo hav-ing a mixture. Hirvonen was even more frustrated, "This afternoon we were almost as fast with the right tyres as Loeb was with the wrong ones!" Latvala's worries were increased because he had to drive two of the three afternoon stages with power steering failure, a task made even more tricky on the bumpy stretches of the stages. In the Junior category Arzeno had a puncture near the end of stage 5, losing enough time to bequeath the lead to Thierry Neu-ville, and then he had another puncture on stage 6. Happily he was carrying two spares. Several drivers (Abbring and Weijs includ-ed) played an option game with their tyres, running intermediates on the rear which did their han-dling on the dry roads no good, while Weijs had the horror of discovering his codriver had sud-denly lost his voice ... Lemes had steering problems which ended with a disconnected driveshaft. Slalov had a puncture in the morning which he had to stop and change, then he lost time at mid-day service with a brake problem. Near the start of the final stage of the day Abbring stopped with alternator failure. Mysteriously his Dutch teammate Weijs also had alternator failure, and Weijs actually carried a spare unit in his car, which he could then change. That was odd! On the first stage of the afternoon Arzeno went off the road and badly damaged the rear suspension, ending his run for the day. In Group N Henning Solberg and Brynildsen had hard tyres and lost time, though Kuipers had softs. Iliev had a persistent engine misfire, which got worse on the road sections. He was one person delighted that stage 7 was cancelled. He then stopped on the first stage of the afternoon be-cause he damaged his car when he slid into a barrier. There were sus-picions about the fuel being used by local drivers. The cars of Petar Gyoshev and Jasen Popov had fuel samples taken for analysis, and the organisers issued a statement that • they were checking where the cars were being refuelled. Henning was happy, he used hard tyres in the afternoon, Kuipers was miserable using softs. The event stewards worked late on Friday evening. Firstly the JWRC driver Yeray Lemes was excluded for working on his car after checking-in at the start of stage 7, ironically the cancelled stage. Then a major row blew up concerning five Bulgarian drivers, concerning refuelling. Rules al-lowed non-priority drivers to use commercially available pump fuel "dispensed from pumps at filling stations ... marked in the road book". What happened was that these drivers used fuel brought to them by mechanfcs, and which did not come from the pumps. So, six more drivers were excluded, in-cluding Petar Gyoshev, the cham-pionship winner on the recent Serbia Rally, who was lying second in Group N (behind Henning Solberg). They were allowed to restart the rally, out of classifica-tion for the WRC but still eligible for the local series. Gyoshev had already attracted curiosity through his sponsorship from Victory, a Bulgarian tobacco company, but neatly the car's stickers placed the words "Energy Drink" under the· logo! Day 3 - 4 Stages -Asphalt - 94.52kms The final day was hot and dry, hard tyres were 'de rigeur' although Latvala fitted softs, with a view to finding out what were the comparative performances between the two types of tyre. For Loeb this was truly a Sunday morning drive, there was no need to push at all. Though for all Petter Solberg's comments about being content with third place, his eye was on Sordo's second place just 4. 7 seconds ahead of him. 29 cars officially restarted the WRC category of the rally in-cluding Kimi Raikkonen in 13th position. He found his C4 WRC was handling strangely which was explained when he discovered a broken rear anti-roll bar bolt, and after the second stage of the day was up to 11th. Sardo held off Solberg to gain his 15th second place. It seemed that all the Junior drivers complained about errors in their pacenotes on the open-ing stage. Thierry Neuville had a spin when he completely mis-judged a bend but held his lead. Several drivers still complained about brake troubles. At the start of the second stage of the day Harry Hunt had to retire when a driveshaft failed. Neuville won ahead of Hans Weijs, both in C2 S1600s to make it a Citroen 1-2. Local driver Todor Slavov finished third with Alex Broccoli fourth, both in R3 Clios. The Suzuki of Karl Kruuda came in fifth. Citroen's domination contin-ued to the end, with drivers at the wheel of their cars gaining the fastest times on all the stages. In fact the four drivers who took the first four places, Loeb, Sordo, Petter Solberg and Ogier were the only drivers to take the top three times on each stage. The best any Ford driver was able to do was two fourth places for Mikko Hirvonen, the BP Fords coming home 5-6 and the Stobart Fords in 7-9. The interloper in 8th place was Frigyes Turan in his six year old Peugeot 307WRC, the first Hungarian to score a world championship point in the 37 year history of the series. Through the day Super 2000 cars held the top five places in Group N, the next car being more than 16 minutes behind but then Krum Donchev was excluded, another victim of a refuelling infringement. Heading for the Neste Oil Rally Finland at the end of July, the next rally in the WRC calendar, the Super 2000 and Production Car WRC competitors reappear. For the championship points the position was striking. Sebastien Loeb was 51 points ahead in the Drivers' category, Citroen Total 47 points ahead in the Makes. Kevin Abbring, who came to Bul-garia sharing the lead in the series. with Aaron Burkart, who did not' compete here, left with a six point lead after three of the six rounds have been held. Of the six classes, Citroen won three against two for Renault and one for Ford. lAl2C: 41 st Rally of Bulgaria (BG) Borovets 9/11 .07.2010 WCR round 7, JWRC round 3 WCR points WCRWCDJ . 1 (1) Sebastien LOEB/Daniel Elena FIMC Citroen C4 WRC AL791AR (F) 3h.02m.39.2s. 25 25 -2 (2) Dani SORDO/Marc Marti E Citroen C4 WRC AL934PD (F) 3h.03m.08.7s. 1818 -3 (1 i) Petter Solberg/Chris Patterson N/GB Citroen C4 VVRC AP607AM (F) 3h.03m.15.5s. -15 -4 (7) Sebastien OGIER/Julien Ingrassia F Citroen C4 WRC AJ607MN (F) 3h.04m.34.2s. 15 12 -5 (3) Mikko HIRVONEN/Jarmo Lehtinen FIN Ford Focus RS WRC BK08LCW (GB) 3h.05m.57.0s. 12 10 -6 (4) Jari-Matti LATVALA/Miikka Anttila FIN Ford Focus RS WRC PX08AXD (GB) 3h.07m.07.7s. 10 8 -7 (6) Per-Gunnar ANDERSSON/Jonas Andersson S Ford Focus RS WRC EA07RGZ (GB) 3h.08m.04.4s. 8 6 -8 (41) Frigyes Turan/Gabor Zsiros H Peugeot 307 WRC 405 S3E (CZ) 3h.09m.43.2s. -4-0 {5} ~,1~!!~::-.".'

~ EXTREME OUTLAWS 250 Chuck Dempsey Takes Class 1 And overall Text & Photos: Troy Robinson Chuck Dempsey was going so fast we never got him inJrame, Chuck took the Class 1 win and he was the overall winner to boot! The big winners of this race were the race organizers and sup-porters. At the season opener race in March, Wes Harbor, director of VORRA, announced that there would be a new desert race hosted by a major Reno casino. After months of preparation and support the race weekend finally arrived and details were still being sorted out. Supporters of this race get a round of applause as their help and dedication to make this race hap-pen go above and beyond; Lance Gillman, Roger Norman, Rod Hall and all the VORRA volunteers and staff. After a 16-year hiatus from Vir-ginia City the Comstock would once again see off-road racing return to the streets ... or would it? The 95-mile course was laid out on mostly private land and some BLM property. The course was marked, course maps were issued and OPS files were handed out the Wednes-day prior to the race. Everyong gathered at the world famous Mus-tang Ranch just outside of Sparks on Thursday morning and began our 1-lap escorted pre-fun-pre-run around the course. At noon we were in Virginia City after 55 miles of rocks and hills and some pave-ment. A wonderful lunch spread awaited us before we departed for the remainder of the course. After the pre-run the bench racers estimated that this race course was rough and tough enough that even the fastest cars wouldn't be able to complete 3 laps in the allotted time limit. A course change was announced. Due to complaints of property own-ers in the Virginia City area the course was diverted away from the historic town and moved solely onto the property owned by Lance Gillman and Roger Norman. A 60-mile course was laid out and racers would run 4-laps. D9 Canyon. At noon on Friday, just 23-hours before the race was to start, Norman and Gillman sent a team out and bladed a new road down a wash to make the race a loop. This new road would be about 2 miles long with a 1500-foot elevation drop. To see the road was simply mind blowing. Just 40-min-utes before the start of the race the road was finished and marked for racing. This road had car-sized boulders that have to be driven over where the canyon narrowed Greg Jones drove his really good looking Ford to the gold medal in Group T, Greg finished second overall in the race. tight enough that the D9 wouldn't fit thru. They ended up piling rocks and dirt high enough so the 14-foot wide blade on the D9 could make it over. The Grand Sierra Resort hosted the race they wer a great host. This is a magnificent resort and had multiple venues going on during the weekend including Supermoto and FMX Freestyle events in the parking lot, an off-site pro-rodeo, soccer tournaments along with weddings, retirement parties and night life all weekend long. Thurs-day night the Extreme Sports bar inside the GSR hosted a BBQ with drinks on the front porch of the resort. Time for bench racing after the pre-run and rumors of the changes that were being made (at this point we knew nothing of D9 canyon). All day Friday would be tech and contingency row in the parking lot with Supermoto just behind us. The drivers meeting was Friday night and even during the meeting Wes was taking phone calls about the course as the D9 was bladed and the volunteers were marking. The Extreme jump contest was held in the parking lot of the resort on Saturday morning. Taking the longest combined distance at 145' was Sam Berri in class 1. Other class winners were Red Team Rac-ing, Joe Kirsch, Mike Shaffer, Gary Dixon, John Gurney and Derek Trent who each received 30-second time credits for the overall race time. Race vehicles were then es-corted via Interstate 80 seventeen miles to the Patrick exit where the race start-finish would be. A brief look over the cars and we were ready to go racing. Wait; let's rewind the tape for a moment. What about qualifying? For the first time at a VORRA des-ert race the starting order for the pro class was determined by a 4.2-mile qualifying loop that was held Friday morning. 19 vehicles at-tempted to qualify and that would be the starting order for the first 19 cars, the rest of the field would start in their classes based on a draw. Sam Berri not only qualifies well at Best in the Desert races but here too and he set the fastest time earning him the first start position. And now to recap the class winners. Taking the class 1 win and 1st overall was Chuck Dempsey driv-ing a Speed Technologies class 1. This was Dempsey's 2nd race with VORRA and he had little trouble in the victory with only a flat tire slowing him down. He coverefl. the 240 miles in just over 6 hours 32 minutes. Taking 2nd in class and 2nd overall in another Speed Technologies car was John Harrah and Roger Norman (1555). l:he duo set fast lap of the day having to work their way up from the 17th start position after a bad qualifying run.

Round #4 By Homer Eubanks Photos: Trackside Photo • Curt Geer had a really good day, he took the gold medal in Limited Buggy both races and was therefore the overall winner for the class. In the Pilots/Revolts/Stadium Lites/Odyssey it was Jeff Pechtel all the way , he took both heats and was declared the overall winner in the class. Race 4 of the Glen Helen series, now part of the Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series, was held at Glen Helen Off Road Park July 10. The newly formed regional series, under the direction of Series Director Tony Vanillo, hopes to provide a platform to build the sport at the grass root level while allowing those involved to share resources and unite them under one unified orga-nization. Those currently involved besides Glen Helen are the Arizona Short Course Championship and the General Tire TROPHYLITE Series. Glen Helen Promoter, Bob Beyer said he was excited about the series and how it will strengthen the sport overall. SUPER BUGGY With the thermometer was bouncing off the 100-degree mark J Phil Bollman drove, or flew to the win in both Pro Buggy Unlimited events, he's seen here nicely airborne on his way to the checkers. Steve Herrera had a ball! He flew his Nissan truck to the Pro Lite Unlimited win in both heats, thus, he was the overall class winner. the Super S/C Buggy drivers de-cided to add to the ambient heat with some heated action of their own. In race one Phil Bollman was able to capitalize from Eddie Tafoya getting spun out in turn one. Boll-man then put five seconds between himself and John Holmes and third was Garret George. Just when it appeared Bollman was out for a Sunday drive Holmes closed up with just a few laps to go and made several attempts on Bollman's posi-tion. Although Holmes provided some excitement Bollman was able to fend off his advances to take the checkers. Holmes was second and Tafoya had made his way up to third. Race two saw Bollman again jump out front with Holmes charg-ing ·after him. Before Holmes could make an effort he had a violent flip going down the back stretch. With Holmes out Gary Williams took up the chase on Bollman. Bollman however, was not to be caught so the action was for second place as Williams tried to defend his spot from Garret George and Myan· Spaccarelli. The three provided some good entertainment for the fans but Williams was not able to retain his second spot as George got by with three laps to go. At the finish it was Bollman, George, Williams and Tafoya. To the fans as-tonishment John Holmes got back in mid-race after shaking the effects off from his earlier crash. Bollman earned the overall on the day and is now the current class points leader (140) over Shawn Gibson (120). Williams was second on the day with his 3-3 results. Holmes earned third overall after placing sixth in race two. LIMITED BUGGY Eric Fiorino had it relatively easy at Glen Helen, he was the winner in both heats of the Trophylite contest. Jeff Musgrave really had it made, he was the only entrant in the Prerunner Full category, he took the checkers ,n both heats. A field of 13 Limited Buggies came out for race one and Sammy Ehrenberg quickly took the early lead. Ehrenberg soon spun giving away the lead to Curt Geer.

Once race two got underway Taylor George again dominated the field. Brad Bauder gave George pressure throughout the race but near the end Bauder suffered a flat allowing George an easy victory.

PRO SIC LITE, TROPHY LITE, PRERUNNER MINI, PRE-RUNER FULL, 5-1600 Steven Herrera had the field covered in his Pro S/ C Lite truck who ran against Trophylites driven by Eric Fiorino and William Boyd.

BFGaatlricli -----------•'Tms BFGoodrich ® Tires Bringing the "Total Domination" Spirit from X Games 16 to the Inaugural RallyCar U.S. Rallycross Championship Travis Pastrana to receive Outstanding Achievements award from BFGoodrich Tires at 2010 Rally America Banquet The heart pounding, high-flying, side-by-side ac-tion known as Rallycross is ready for its inaugural debut this coming week-end and BFGoodrich® Tires is once again ready to dominate. After rock-Page 38 ing the R ally Car Racing and SuperRally Car com-petitions a t X Games 16, BFGoodrich Tires is look-ing to make championship traction again at America's newest motorsport, the RallyCar U.S. Rallycross Championship. Taking place at New Jersey Mo-torsports Park (NJMP) on Aug. 28-29, the blend of circuit racing, off-road rac-ing and rally competition will give fans high-impact action and excitement, as well as give BFGoodrich Tires another opportu-nity to truly show its stuff. NJMP's jumps, unbanked turns, hills and transitions between pavement and gravel will allow BFGo-odrich Tires to showcase the grip, acceleration and to u ghness tha t has led to 17 o f 20 X G a mes Rally Car Racing and Super-Rally medals. "BFGoodrich Tires takes great pride in its rally successes at X Games and Rally America compe-titions and we can't wait to get to work at the ag-gressive new Rallycross series," said Roberts Ku-kainis, motorsports man-ager, BFGoodrich Tires. "Drivers continue to push the BFGoodrich g-Force™ Rally tires to the limit and the tires continue to grip at the highest level." BFGoodrich tires will again be the tire of choice for a number of elite driv-ers, including four-time Rally America champion, Travis Pastrana (Subaru September 2010 Rally Team USA); 2009 N orth America n Rally Champio n and X Games 16 Rally Car Racing bronze medalist, Andrew Comrie-Picard (Mitsubishi); and X Games 16 Rally Car Racing and SuperRally gold med-alist, Tanner Foust (Ford). "Rallycross at X Games 16 was incredible and I cannot wait to get out on track again this weekend in New Jersey," said An-drew Comrie-Picard. "I can only imagine that Ral-lycross will grow rapidly in popularity in the U.S. and it's exciting to have BFGoodrich Tires' support in this inaugural event. I am looking forward to conquering this weekend's course with the same grip and acceleration offered b y BFGoodrich's g-Fo rce Rally tire tha t helped m e capture the bronze at this year's X Games." Tire selection will be crucial for this first-ever event, and teams will have a number of variables to consider when choosing a rally tire, including hard-ness, sizing and groove type. BFGoodrich Tires has a couple different of-ferings that meets teams' expectations of grip, accel-eration and toughness at the new Rallycross series. A course with more gravel will provide the perfect surface for teams choos-ing the aggressive-gripping BFGoodrich g-Force Ral-ly (gravel) tires that cut through loose top surface in search of firmer ground underneath. The BFGo-odrich g-Force Rally (tar-mac) tire will set teams up for success by hugging the road's underlying surface where there is less gravel. RallyCar U.S. Rally-cross Championship Com-petition Format Rallycross will consist of five rally cars jumping and sliding on a road course made up of a mixture of pavement and gravel. The five drivers will line up to start at once, piloting high-horsepower compact cars through race traffic over a challenging short course in a fan-friendly track environment. Each car must also take a "Jok-er" lap at some point dur-ing their heat, which is a small detour -normally over a jump -that adds a level of unpredictability tb the outcome of the heat by instantly changing a driver's strategy. Two classes have been chosen for the initial year of Rallycross competition. The first class features fast-er, all-wheel-drive cars that resemble those used in current RallyCar competi-tion. The second category of Rallycross cars will be two-wheel-drive cars boast-ing 450-plus horsepower, highly modified engines and reinforced suspension. BFGoodrich Tires to Honor Travis Pastrana at Rally America Awards Banquet BFGoodrich Tires is proud to have rolled Subaru Rally Team USA driver Travis Pastrana to victory multiple times over the past five years. In recognition of his out-standing competitive per-formance and record-set-ting achievements at Rally America competitions dur-ing his time, the tire man-, ufacturer will present a Performance and Achieve-ments award at the Rally America National Rally Championship Awards banquet presented by BF-Goodrich Tires on Friday, Aug. 27.

BFGoodrich Tires combines techno-logical expertise with vast motorsports experience, delivering a high-perfor-mance tire for every type of vehicle. Visit BFGo-odrich Tires at The BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC), a national trail-based recreational advocacy group, has announced its support of the National Monument Designation Transparency and Accountability Act (H.R. 5580). This legislation would help limit the amount of land that can be desig-nated as a National Monu-ment as well as preventing arbitrary restrictions on various multiple-use ac-tivities including vehicle-based recreation and ac-cess to public lands. H.R. 5580 has been introduced in the House by Represen-tative Devin Nunes (CA) and in the Senate by Sena-tor Mike Crapo (ID). Greg Mumm, BRC's Ex-ecutive Director said, "We applaud the recent effort of Senator Crapo and Rep. Nunez to establish some common sense guidelines for use of White House powers under the Antiq-uities Act. We hope to see a day when all elected officials see the value of including citizens in a pro-cess which fundamentally Dusty Times impacts their ability to use or connect with public lands." The President should not have unchecked au-thority to designate new National Monuments. The Antiquities Act of 1906 was never envisioned· by its authors to be used as a tool to set aside millions of acres where historic multiple-use activities and recreation occur. Don Amador, BRC's Western Representative said, "H.R. 5580 would encourage local stakehold-er involvement and create a public process. BRC believes land-use legisla-tion should be developed from the ground up rather than being crafted behind closed doors in Washing-ton D.C." Amador noted that many of these Na-tional Monument propos-als could impact designat-ed OHV areas on federal lands throughout the West including the Stonyford OHV Area on the Men-docino National Forest in Northern California and the San Rafael Swell in Utah.

("Soccer", to you) CHECKERS OFF-ROAD & MOR DISASTER The Checkers Off-Road Racing Team, now in its 36th year, would like to express our deepest con-dolences to the families of those racers and spectators who were killed or injured in the horrific racing ac-cident that occurred at the MDR California 200 held at Lucerne Valley, Califor-nia, on August 14th. Rac-ing of any type has always been associated with the inherent dangers present in an adrenalin-charged environment, especially so in racing the beautiful des-erts of the south-western United States and Mexico It is heart-warming to see so many people mak-ing financial contribu-tions to assist the surviv-ing families through orga-nizations like Fast Aid and others, and the Checkers will also make a substan-tial contribution to this cause in the near future. However, our member-ship of 100 would like to do something above and beyond financial aid. The Checkers Off-Road will be going through a program where all of us will partici-pate in and get certified as being able to administer CPR and advanced first aid in the event our help is needed in any future inci-dents of this nature. It is unfortunate that it took a tragedy in our com-munity to make us aware of the need to be better pre-pared to render emergency assistance. All off-road rac-ers and their families need to know they can count on the members of Checkers· Off-Road to assist in these circumstances. We are easy to find at any given off-road race; simply look for the flying checkered flag at our pits. We are happy to be of service if needed. Dusty Times
