Trail Notes ... FINAL FLAG -We were distressed to hear of the passing of Corey Wilcox. Corey passed away on March 4, 2011. He deeply enjoyed off road racing and he helped out in the pits. His passion was welding and fabricating and he loved helping friends and strangers alike fix their cars and race trucks. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. MILLER MoTORSPORTS PARK TO HosT ROBBY GORDON SPEED ENERGY DESERT CHALLENGE -Scott Michaels, co-founder of Mi7 Events, announced in a press conference on July 26 that a major off-road race will take place at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, September 29 -October 2. The inaugural Robby Gordon SPEED Energy Desert Challenge is a joint effort among NASCAR driver Robby Gordon, Mi7 Events and Blessing Bridge International that will be staged on a 900-acre parcel of private property located on the east side ofN. Sheep Lane in Tooele, across from Miller Motorsports Park. An international cast of world-class off-road racers and extreme-sports athletes will participate in the event, which will be open to a variety of vehicles that normally compete in long-distance desert racing events such as the Baja 1000. Boasting a series of star-studded concerts and a freestyle motocross exhibition showcasing the world's best, this weekend promises to be nothing short of spectacular! Although the event will utilize certain elements of Miller Motorsports Park's existing facility and staff, the event will be wholly operated and promoted by Mi7 Events, a Las Vegas-based event-management company. The race will take place on a 7-mile desert-racing course constructed specifically for this event and will provide spectators with an excellent view of all the action and access to the drivers for autographs. Joining Robby Gordon in the Robby Gordon SPEED Energy Desert Challenge will be other top racing, greats, including: "Ballistic" BJ Baldwin (Monster Energy); Bryce Menzies and Gus Vildosola (Team Red Bull); "Pistol" Pete Sohren; and Joe Willardsen (Team Nitro Circus), plus top off-road teams from as far away as Canada and Mexico to showcase Trophy Trucks for the first time ever in Utah, In addition, Class 1, Class 10, Class 12, Class 16 and Class 72 vehicles will be eligible to compete. The Freestyle Motocross exhibition will feature Mike Metzger, "the Godfather of Freestyle Motocross," along with FMX superstars from around the globe including Brody Wilson, Libor Podmol (Czech Republic), Allistair "Jackalas" Sayer (South Africa), Rob Adleberg (Australia) and many others. These incredible athletes have competed in venues including The Dew Tour, X Games, IFMA, AFMXA, Rockstar Mayhem Festival Tour, Journey's Backyard BBQ Tour, Gravity Games and Red Bull X-Fighters. A portion of net proceeds from the Robby Gordon Speed Energy Desert Challenge will be dedicated to benefit various children's charities in the United States, through Blessing Bridge International.

S CORESETSTECATESCORESANFELIPECHALLENGEOFCHAMPIONS DESERT RACE To BE HELD IN SAN FELIPE, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO -Insurance issues cause SCORE to move Primm race South of the Border. SCORE International confirmed today that the next race of five-race 2011 SCORE Desert Series will be the new Tecate SCORE San Felipe Challenge of Champions to be held Sept. 9-11 in San Felipe, Baja, California, Mexico. The race replaces the Primm 300 race that was cancelled this year because of insurmountable insurance issues. The new race, for 17 Pro and 2 Sportsman classes for cars and trucks, will run over the same course that was recently used for this year's MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 in March of approximately 250 miles. After executing the event agreement today in Baja California with SCORE President/CEO Sal Fish, Francisco Perez Tejada Padilla, Mayor of Mexicali stated that, "The cities of Mexicali and San Felipe are pleased to announce that SCORE has decided to continue supporting Baja California by adding another race to their calendar in Mexico. This shows the great communication achieved by the Federal, State and Municipal authorities with Sal Fish. We are pleased that SCORE recognizes our previous hard work and continues to have confidence in our support. This new race will become the epicenter of desert racing during the month of September." Fish stated that, "While SCORE regrets ending a 16 year relationship with the Primm Valley Resorts and Las Vegas Events, we are pleased to open a new door with Mexicali and San Felipe and provide our participants with an exciting Baja racing challenge in the friendly, relaxing and scenic city of San Felipe." Elaborating on the cancellation of this year's Primm 300, Fish confirmed that, "The sole reason for the decision was due to insurance requirements and cost. The Primm entities dramatically increased the liability insurance requirements for the event, which made conducting the event cost prohibitive."

The wining truck was entered in VORRA's Full Metal class. Saturday morning, the first vehicle left the starting line at 8:29 am and each vehicle was given twenty-one hours to complete the course. Hall has proactively assisted Valley Off-Road Racing Association to launch the greatly anticipated race. "I applaud Wes Harbor and VORRA in their efforts to build a new, premier off-road race in northern Nevada. Given the difficulty race promoters face, this event is welcomed by our sport to keep off-road racing alive and thriving in the U.S.," exclaimed Baja legend Rod Hall. The course has been described as a smooth and fast loop race, with varied technical sections for a ~tal of 529 miles. Race director Wes Harbor designed the course to require fewer chase crews and spectator viewing areas where the racecourse can be viewed safely. The event also included freestyle moto demos, live music, rock crawl demos and other entertainment on Victorian Square. On Sunday, VORRA hosted the USA 200 motorcycle race.

FREEDOM 250 Langley Takes overall By Stephen Ruddick Photos: Trackside Photo Zak Langley had a wonderful race, he took the checkered flag in 4 hours, 14 minutes, 22 seconds, seen here at a rough touchdown. Hello Race Fans. 'Ace Re-porter' for Dusty Times here. I'm back in beautiful Barstow CA again for the 2011 M.O.R.E./ Royal Purple Freedom 250 at the Stoddard OHV. The weather couldn't be better - clear blue skies, temps in the 90's, and enough Barstow 'breeze' to keep the course mostly free of dust without ripping the course flags to shreds. The Mojave Desert can be pretty brutal and unforgiving in the warm California sun in the middle of July. The humidity at Start time was 11 %. The kind of weather that will sap every drop of moisture from your body. You were expecting an A/C'd Press box with all the trimmings and luxuries? It's Barstow -in the middle of summer - in the Mo-jave. My office is my truck. It's Course B -clockwise. 36 miles per lap; as assigned by BLM. 7 Road Crossings (RX) - six Spectator Viewing Areas, and 2 remote pits. This is get-ting to be one chewed up -tore up -rutted out -rock strewn, obstacle course; wored out after years of use. Kind of like them old wagon trains - pilgrim after pilgrim following along in the same rut. Whenever I got 'dust-ed' - I just let the truck follow the deepest rut. That's what us Ace Reporters call 'drivin by the seat of your pants'; pre-GPS. All that Barstow has to offer takes its toll on both man and machine. The only way to win -is to beat 'The Barstow'. May the force be with you. The waving of the green flag commenced at 4:00 PM PST. 97 Racers started in 14 different Classes. One-third of all the starters DNF'd, and 64 racers survived 'The Barstow' and finished all the required Laps within the 8-hour Max al-lotted time to see the checkered flag waving in victory. S'-lnset was about 8:00 PM. There was a full moon. Classes 1 -10 -12 -Su and 5/16 - 1600 -3000 raced for six laps; 216 miles. Classes 9, 13, and 1400 did five laps; 180 miles. Classes 7s/1700 and 1450 raced four laps; 144 miles. Classes 3 -3700 and 11 did 3 laps; 108 miles. CLASS 1: Six laps; 216 miles. Sixteen starters; 9 Finish-ers. Oh My Goodness! That's a lot of pony power. If each power plant produces 650 horsepower, that is equivalent to a wagon train with 10,400 horses. Move Ryan George had a runaway race win, he took the gold medal in Trophy Challenge with ease, he's seen here beautifully airborne. 'em out! Richard Boyle got the pole start at the green flag in car #102 and was immediately beset upon by 'The Barstow' with a lh:44m down time on the side-lines. George Pondella was next off the line in car #58, followed by Lee Finke in car #111. Shelby Reid emerged from the Class l -'wolf pack' to take the lead in car #1568 after Lap 1 was done -with a 2-minute:49-second time advantage in front of Eric Jacobus in car #167. Out in front with a 2m:49s time advantage is good - especially when Reid had five other cars running behind -and they were all bunched up within 54-seconds of each other. The wolves chasing the fox. Eric Hardin in car #155 was 18s be-hind Jacobus in car #167. George Pondella in car #58 was 13s behind #155. Zak Langley in car #101 was 19s behind #58. Sean Dunn in car # 123 was 4s behind # 101. Wuff wuf. Pondella and Finke DNF' d after Lap 1. Reid slowed down on Lap 2 and the Class 1 wolf pack feed-ing order changed again. Rick Romans was now out in front in car #22 with a 42s lead in front of Eric Hardin in car# 155. Sean Dunn was in hot pursuit in car # 123, only 19s behind Hardin. Dave Bonner had moved up to fourth spot in car #1580 but was running 6m:39s behind the lead-er. Hardin DNF' d after Lap 2 in car #155, along with Scott Buch-witz in car # 105 and Scott Foster in car #26. 'The Barstow' takes its toll. Sean Dunn slowed down on Lap 3 and that put Zak Lang-ley in second spot in car #101 about 38s behind the leader -Rick Romans in car #22. Langley was ahead of Dave Bonner in car #1580 by Sm: 16s, and Bonner was out in front of Brad Etter in car #156 by another 4m:53s. Ty-ler Morgan in car # 113 was only 64s behind Etter. Zak Langley handed over the wheel duties to Dan Martin in car # 101 after Lap 3 and the rest of the race was on. Romans was in the lead by 38-seconds in car #22 at the start of Lap 4 -with three laps left to race. Martin found some more gas pedal to apply or drove a better line, or both, on Lap 4 to win the Fast Lap award at 52. 7 mph in 39m:39s in the COPS Racing car #101. Romans did it in 45m:52s at 45.8 mph. That put car #101 out in front by 6m: 13s ahead of Romans in car #22 at the start of Lap 5. Romans picked up the pace on Lap 5 and narrowed the gap on #101 by ZS-seconds. Brad Etter was still in the running when #156 DNF'd after Lap 5. Romans was delayed further with a flat on Lap 6, and that put the COPS car #101 into the Winner's Circle atop the podium in First Place in Class Vincent Dudash was well off the winning pace in the Trophy Challenge but he still pulled out a second place finish in the class. It was a second place finish in class for Clint Berry, a long fifth lap didn't help him much, seen here charging for the checkered flag.

Jay Wallick took his class win with 15 minutes to spare, he's seen here just at liftoff on his way to the checkers. Bryson Hopfe had a good run in the Ultra Truck battle, he took the gold medal with 24 minutes in hand. to go up against a big field with so many good drivers and come out with a win feels really great! I think that racing class 12 then getting seat time in class 10 re-ally helped, not to mention all the advice and mentoring I've had from great drivers like Dan Martin, Dale Dondel and Bernie Carr. It's a cliche, but we had a textbook race. No mechani-cals or flats. My co-driver Sean Williams kept me focused and we handed the car off to Dan Martin and Brandon Chrisman. They drove a perfect race and put more time on the field. I'm really proud of the whole COPS racing team for such a great job!" Sounds good to me too. [Mean-while - back in the driver's seat of reality Langley said: "I had butterflies banging in my stom-ach and thought I'd puke before getting off the line". Eeuuwww* Then Langley caught and passed a trophy truck in the first four and First Overall - by a 13m:50s margin of win at 49.5 mph. "Beautiful!" Dan Martin said after. "The competition was great. The COPS Racing car was ·phenomenal. We had no issues. It was fun!" "We're relatively new to this great sport, "says John Langley, speaking on behalf of his sons and the rest of the COPS Racing team. "But we're hoping to up our game with every race, and I'm proud to say Zak has made a great debut in Class 1 with his win at the Freedom 250. He's also running 3rd place in Class 12 in the SCORE series, so we're hoping he can keep it together after his 2nd Place showing at the Baja 500 this year. In any case, the kid is showing great promise!" COPS Racing Team takes its name from the television show -which is produced by Langley. "This was a really important race for me," said Zak Langley.

miles so he settled down and ended the first three laps run-ning in 2nd spot. Dan Martin hopped in and sealed the deal in the next three laps, duking it out with Romans/Jeffries in car #22 until he came in with a good lead to take the Overall and First Place wins. "The dust hung like dirty blankets everywhere and made passing tough unless you hit clean air on an alternate line", Martin said.) Nice win. The reality is -just Finishing is a victory when you beat 'The Barstow'. Winning too is what makes it all fun -in the warm California sun, in the Mojave -in Barstow. Rick Romans won Second Place in Class and Second Over-all in car #22 in 4:28: 12 at 47 mph by a 30-minute margin of win ahead of the Third Place winner -Dave Bonner in car #1580.

Sean Dunn got all the required laps done in 5:08:10 at 40.9 mph to finish in Fifth Place in car #123. Dunn won by a 2m:26 finish in front of Mark Johnson in the DK Rac-ing car #177. Owner Dan Kin-caid said, "We run in the 7200 truck class and came out to Barstow to test the suspension. It works great". I asked: How was the course? "Rough doesn't even come close" Johnson re-plied. But Shelby Reid made it a close race when she finished in 5: 11 :32 -just 58-seconds behind Johnson in #177 to win Seventh Place in car #1568. "The car ran good", Reid reported. "We had some P/S servo issues but no flats. It's rough. The light bar fell off. It's Barstow." Yea huh.

Cody Reid started toward the back of the pack in car # 1068 and was out in front by lm: 15s ahead of Dohrman after Lap 1 was done. Dohrman was ahead of both Brian Potts in car # 1082 and Isabelle in car # 1069 by only ten seconds, and Tim Scott in car #1051 was only 24-seconds behind them. Scott DNF' d after Lap 2. Reid was still in the lead in car # 1068 after Lap 3 by 4m: 15s ahead of Brian Potts in car #1082. Potts was about 4-minutes in front of Mc-Gee in car # 1011 and Dohrman had slipped back to fourth spot in car #1025 about IO-minutes behind McGee. McGee and Isabelle and Dorh-man were all beset upon by 'The Barstow' slows on Lap 4 and the pack got reshuffled for the remaining race to the finish and glory. Cody Reid cranked it up a notch on Lap 4 in car #1068 to record a tie for the Fast Lap award at 47 mph. Brian Potts did the same 47 mph on Lap 6 but clocked in at 3-seconds faster to win Fast Lap honors in car #1082. Reid was still the fastest overall for the day in car # 1068 and won First Place in 4:40:31 at 44.9 mph by a 9m:28s margin of victory. "Awesome!" Reid said after. "We just got the car a week ago and worked on getting the suspension dialed in, and turned a 'shake-down' into a win". Nicely done. Brian Potts got all the required laps completed in 4:49:59 to win Second Place in class at 43.5 mph in the Toyota-powered BP Air Racing car #1082. "We had a good race and a good run", Potts said.

"The rear shocks gave out too". That's what hardcore desert racing is all about, Race Fans. True grit. John and son Morgan Langley finished in Fifth Place in car #1002 in 5:52:54 at 35.7 mph, after a flat and some mechanical problems. Said father Langley, "We didn't have the great run Zak and Dan had (in car #101) but we had a whole lot of fun in a competitive field." 'Dad' Langley was first off the line and caught up with two Class 1 cars but was completely dusted out on two lines when they split and left him in a dirt fog that slowed him down. Then Langley had a flat on the off camber ridge at around mile 18 or 19 and took a 25 minute delay with jack prob-lems and a slow change. After getting back in the race, with no spare, a class 3000 car smacked #1011 and tore off his muffler and dusted him out. Langley fought back through dozens of slower classes once he got a spare at mile 27 or so, but the dust and delays took #1101 out of conten-tion once Morgan got in after lap three. That's what hardcore desert racing is all about, Race Fans. It all adds up to a great day of racing -in the warm Califor-nia sun -in the Mojave - in The Barstow. CLASS 5u-5/16: S i x laps; 216 miles.

Racing car #559. Garravito left the competition in his dust and was out in front of Scott Moldenhauer in car #501 by 2m:20s on Lap 1. Molden-hauer was ahead of Larry Atuna in car #507 by lm:4ls after Lap 1 was done. Heitritter hit the gas on Lap 2 and won the Fast Lap award at 41.8 mph in 50: 13 in car #5025 and was running back up in second spot at the start of Lap 3 - with Guy Savedra in car #559 only 31-seconds off his rear bumper. Savedra got the pass on Heitritter and car #559 was running in second spot after Lap 3 -and about 14-minutes behind the front runner in car #505.

Hardy described it this way: "Perfect. No flats. No problems". His co-driver - Kali 'helmet hair' told it like this: "It was a rough ride. There was lots of traffic. My thumb is sore from honk-ing the horn. Does my hair look horrible?"

Then it was Berry's turn to get bit by 'The Barstow' slows on Lap 5 and Fiorino jumped into the lead going into the last lap in car #6088. And then -Fiorino encountered August 2011 'The Barstow' slows on Lap 6 and Wallack re-passed them both to take the First Place win by a 15-minute margin of victory in 5:25:28 at 38. 7 mph. Clint Berry recovered to win Second Place in class in 5:40:19 at 37 mph in car #3020 and by 25-minutes ahead of Eric Fiorino in car #6088. Fiorino recovered and finished in 6:05: 10 at 34.5 mph to win Third Place in class. Hard won victories. That's pretty exciting open desert race action, Race Fans.

A whole herd of race trucks. And mucho carnage asada too. Five racers DNF' d after the first lap. Race trucks broke down everywhere. Welcome to 'The Barstow'. After the initial shock and awe wore off -Ryan Agi-us emerged out front in truck # 1484 by 8-seconds ahead of Bryson Hopfe in truck # 1401 after Lap 1 was done. Alan Byma in truck #1433 was only 13-seconds behind Hopfe. Agius DNF'd after that. Hopfe gave it more gas on Lap 2 to win the Fast Lap honors at 45.2 mph in 46:27, and Byma applied more gas in pursuit. Byma applied more gas than Hopfe did on Lap 3 and truck #1433 was in the lead by 36-seconds in front of Hopfe in truck #1401 after Lap 3. And then - Byma ran afoul of 'The Barstow' on Lap 4, and that allowed Hopfe to regain the lead -and for Michael Fox to get the pass in truck #1420 too. Hopfe kept the pressure on the gas pedal on Lap 5 and won First Place in the Chester Avenue Brake truck #1401 in an elapsed time of 4:00: 12 at 43.7 mph with 24m:12s to spare. This was Hopfe's third race and second win in his 'dad built it in the garage' in Bakersfield prepped truck. Nice job Dad. Jeremy Brown got the ride in the extra seat. "We had a great race", Hopfe said in the winner's circle. "No problems. No flats. Great pit crew. The biggest chal-lenge was not driving over my head and finishing. My neck is sore". Michael Fox finished all the laps required in 4:24:25 to win Second Place in the GMC-truck #1420. Fox and co-driver Kellan Meadows finished with over 30-minutes to spare in front of Allen Byma in truck #1433. "That was pure fun", Fox said. "Great weather. No flats. Lots of rough and rutted out ruts and square faces. TY M.O.R.E. for an awesome event!" Byma got all the laps done required to win Third Place in 4:56:37 at 35.4 mph. Allen Byma drove Laps 1-3. "The truck ran good", he said. His brother Thomas Byma drove Laps 4 and 5. "We had a flat on the last lap ang snapped the throttle cable on Lap ? but we still managed a solid finish", brother Thomas said. "The race was lots of fun. It was exciting having such a great turnout and competition. We were doing 80-90 mph in spots and did battle with #1401 and #1420 all day". Thomas also extended a big TY to his brother Allen "for all the hard work he did (200 hours) af, ter (Allen) crashed the last ,race". That's nice -you broke it -so you fix it. HA! Don't laugh - it made it to the finish line yes. James Gill and co-driver Mark Stewart made it a close race in truck # 1461 when he finished a slim lm:35s behind Byma to win Fourth Place in 4:58: 12 at 35.2 mph. "This was our first race", Gill said. "We had two flats and .fuel pump issues, and we tore off the sway bar on the last lap and nursed it to the finish". That's good -because Ryan Greene was about 5-minutes behind in truck #1411 and was closing the gap faster than Gill was nursing it. Greene got it done in 5:03:27 to finish in Fifth Place at 34.6 mph in truck #1411. CLASS 9: Five laps; 180 miles. Nine starters; 5 Finishers. Derek Dixon was first off the line at the green flag in car #938 -and the first to DNF before the first lap was done. Jared Sluder was next to get the Go in car #903, followed by Matt Crevel-ing in car #990. Creveling was out in front in the lead by 13-sec-onds ahead of Sluder after Lap 1. Brandon Heald in car #916 was 63-seconds behind Sluder. Kurt Young in car #959 was only 6-seconds behind Heald. And Adonis Barela in car #909 was only 8-seconds behind Young. Sluder and Creveling slowed on Lap 2 and Heald didn't and got the pass in car #916 to take the lead. Barela DNF' d after Lap 2 in car #909. Heald slowed on Lap 3 and Creveling re-took the lead in car #990 2-minutes ahead of #916. Giti Gowland had moved up into third spot in car #992 after Lap 3 but was run-ning 15-minutes behind Heald in #916, and Mike Brown in car #924 only 3-seconds behind Gowland. Kurt Young DNF'd after Lap 4 in car #959. Brandon Heald put some more gas pedal to the metal on Lap 4 and got the pass on Creveling in car #990, and #916 held a faster pace to the finish line to win First Place in class by a 3m: 10s margin of victory in 5: 17:43 at 33 mph. Heald also get credit for the Fast Lap honors on Lap 2 at 34.5 mph in 1:00:48. Matt Creveling completed all the laps required to win Second Place in 5:20:50 in car #990 at 32. 7 mph. Giti Gowland gave it some more gas in car #992 to win Third Place in 5:38: 17 at 31 mph and by a 51-second margin ahead of Mike Brown in car #924. Gowland took off his helmet and said: "That was rough. The course is too beat up. There are cars upside down everywhere. I'm gettin' too old for this." Those Class 9 buggies are about as basic a racecar as you can get, and it is a rough and brutal ride Race Fans. 'Old bones' beware. Brown finished in Fourth Place with an elapsed time of 5:39:08 at 31 mph. Jared Sluder brought his bruised and battered car #903 to the finish line to place in Fifth Place in 6:36:32 at 26.5 mph. CLASS 13: Five laps; 180 miles. Four starters; 3 Finishers. Ryan George got the pole start in car # 1301 at the green flag and made a mad dash for the lead at 40 mph to win the Fast Lap hon-ors in 52:33 on the way. That feat of speed put # 1301 out in front of Richard Dormack in car #1336 by 15-minutes after Lap 1. Dormack was being chased by Vincent Dudash in car # 1367 -who was only lm:53s away from Dormack's rear bumper. George kept up a faster pace on Lap 2 in car #1301 and Dormack fell off the pace with a case of 'The Barstow' slows. That moved Du-dash up into second spot in car # 1367, followed by Fred Mooney in car #1373. Dormack DNF'd after Lap 3. Ryan George was way out front with a 52-minute lead in car #1301 after Lap 3.

George backed off the race pace a bit on Laps 4 and 5, and still maintained a winning pace all the way to the checkered flag and the First Place win in 4:47:24 at 36.5 mph and by a 1 :20:46 margin of victory. "The course was not too bad", George re-counted. "It was rough in spots. I hit some big rocks. No flats. We broke third gear. It was good clean fun". Vincent Dudash completed all the laps in 6:08: 10 at 28.5 mph to win Second Place in car #1367. Third Place went to Fred Mooney in car #1373 at 26.8 mph with an overall elapsed time of6:l:45. CLASS 7s/1700: F o u r laps; 144 miles. Three starters; 3 Finishers. Guillermo Herrera was first in line at the green flag in truck #769. Javier Avila was staged up next in truck #721, followed by Billy Bunch in the Jeeps peed # 1799. Herrera got off to a slow start and both Avila and Bunch got the early pass on Lap 1. Avila posted the Fast Lap of the day at 33-mph and was out in front of Bunch by 8-1/2 min-utes at the end of Lap 1, but Her-rera was only 49-seconds behind Bunch at that point. Avila kept up the pace and widened the gap to 29-minutes after Lap 2, but Herrera was now out in front of Bunch by 5-minutes. Bunch re-passed Herrera on Lap 3 but Avila was way out front. Avila got all the laps done in 4:31:46 at 30.9 mph to win First Place in class by a 49m: 15s margin of victory in truck #721. Bunch won Second Place in 5:21:01 at 26.2 mph in #1799, and by 67-minutes on the clock. Herrera finished in 6:28:02 to win Third Place at 21.6 mph in truck #769. CLASS 1450: Four laps; 144 miles. Seven starters; 5 Finish-ers. Jeff Musgrave was the first in line in .class to get the green flag in truck #1467, Brian Groves started next in truck #1490 -and was the first to DNF before Lap 1 was done. Musgrave set the Fast Lap pace on Lap 1 at 36 mph and #1467 DNF'd before Lap 2 was done. [If you see a pattern developing here Race Fans -it is because nobody ever wins an off-road race on the first lap. It is because 40-60% of all DNF's occur on Laps 1 and 2.] Meanwhile -Ernie Seras had a rear-start at the green flag in truck # 1491 and was out in front by 32-minutes after Lap 2 was done. Joey Chott was running in second spot in truck #1453, followed by Rhonda Parkhouse in truck #1496 about 15-min-utes later. Hassim Mendez was in truck #1482 about 3-minutes behind Parkhouse. The only thing that changed the last two laps were lap times and speeds and Ernie Serfas did it the fastest in 4:21:29 at 32.1 mph to win First Place in class by a 39-minute margin of win in truck #1491. "We had a good race; no problems", Serfas re-ported from inside the winner's circle. "It was rough· as usual, there was lots of competition, the weather was perfect; I lost a tooth". Serfas built the front-end on his '94 Ranger racer. "Finish-ing, and winning, was the most fun!" Serfas said. Joey Chott won Second Place in truck #1453 in 4:58:20 at 28.2 mph. Rhonda Parkhouse got all the laps done in 5:51:24 to win Third Place at 23.9 ~ph in truck #1496. Atta-Girl!

Reporters NOTES: Chalk up another WIN! for the M.O.R.E./Royal Purple team for another safe and successful and fun off-road racing event. Kudos go to all the volunteers, too. There were lots of thrills and spills, and several rollovers -but no injuries or otherwise were reported. BLM was out in full force enforcing the rules. Remember: All liquid fuel must be stored inside a container -and inside another container of equal or larger size, at all times. Yep. Spill and Drip pans for your dump cans; even the fuel for your portable generator! Keep those fuel-rated and charged-up fire extinguishers handy and nearby, and manned during pit stops. Even M.O.R.E. was required to purchase an indepen-dent emergency fire pump and storage for S/F. BLM doesn't have anything better to enforce because there are no spectators to keep safe and out of harms way. All the spectators seemed to have been scared away by the sensational headlines because they are mostly few and none to be seen these days. I know there aren't as many around these days because I give out free compli-mentary copies of DT every race. I give free complimentary copies to the BLM rangers too, and they are out in full force. How many watchers does it take to enforce the rules? It takes 40-60 volunteers to watch the watchers to make sure they are doing their high-paid job and enforcing the rules fairly. I actually get paid (not much) to be a Professional Spectator and report what I ob-serve. Who's going to watch the watchers if we don't? Keep up the good work. It was a large crowd of un-controlled spectators that got in the way that fateful day. There was one BLM on patrol. Those that paid the price with their life that fateful day didn't obey the #l spectator Rule upon entering a OHV during a high-risk SRP event -Get Out of The Way! Now there are six designated Spectator Viewing Areas and 12 BLM on patrol, and there are no spectators to control. So BLM has turned their attention to controlling the racers. I feel safer now. According to the new Rules -even I have to sign a waiver and release of Liability form and get wrist-banded up for safety. Press Pit Pass? Nope. According to the new Rules - I am forbidden from cruising Pit Row - unless I do so from in back of the course setback. That makes my job a bit harder because it's hard to distinguish one pit from another from the backside. It also means I have to watch out for all the 'Other idiots' and uncontrolled hordes of humanity who don't have to sign a release and waiver of liability form because most of them don't have a wristband on.

Rick Romans was just a bit off the winning pace in Class 1, Rick was 14 minutes in arrears when he took the checkered flag. The point is -it doesn't seem that other big non-SRP off-road activities attract the numbers of BLM that off-road racing does, and they are every bit as danger-ous. I don't see BLM out in force enforcing the speed limit rules around 'social groups' on jam-packed 3-day holiday weekends at Glamis or Dumont Dunes or Stoddard or Johnson. I don't see BLM out in force enforcing the 'fuel containment' rule at these other gatherings; its federal law no matter who or where. I remember one race when a guy in a nearby pit was throwing raw gas across the track and lighting it on fire. Fireworks* He had little kids running around inside his pit. I went over and tried to tell the guy that's a no-no and got *#@!* in return. I just dialed 911 and a non-BLM cop appeared to enforce the rules because the race was over and all the assigned BLM had left. Go figure. The point is -OHVs are dan-gerous places under any and all circumstances. Accidents and injuries occur regardless of BLM on patrol or not. I can't remem-ber any incident at Stoddard or Johnson OHV where a pit or a fuel can exploded or caught fire" at an SRP. Keep up the good safety. Everybody is responsible for their own reckless conduct and behavior upon entering any OHV anywhere under any and all circumstances. Watch out for all the Other idiots.

lJ\JcC: ACROPOLIS RALLY Ogier/Citroen Take The Gold By Martin Holmes Tensions within the Citroen camp emerged at the end of an immensely successful 1-2 result for the team on the Acropolis Rally, the halfway mark in the 2011 world championship. Sebastien Ogier capitalised on running order handicap to snatch victory on the final day from Sebastien Loeb. Clever tactics on both Day 1 and Day 2 by Ogier against his teammate Loeb produced the result he desired but reduced the championship advantages for Loeb, though he gained his 100th podium finish in the WRC series. For half the event Petter Solberg led, before becoming ensnared in the road cleaning problems of being front-runner, which heightened the political pressures on the FIA to find a happy solution which would obviate these factors This was, however, probably to be one of the last occasions in the 2011 season in which running order would play such a major part, and certainly Ogier played his cards to the full. Mikko Hirvonen eventually gained third place, passing Solberg on the final day. In the secondary series, Juho Hanninen won the SWRC category by nearly five minutes from Bernardo Sousa, who was the category winner in Jordan. Citroen now led Ford by 55 points in the Makes' series, with Petter Solberg's team still the best of the one driver teams. In the Drivers' series Loeb's lead at the head of the field is 17 points over Hirvonen while Ogier is just five points further behind. The gap between these three front runners and fourth placed Latvala is now 48 points. Back again in the world championship after a one-year break, the Acropolis Rally of Greece is one of the original classic events in the series. It ·has been slotted back into the FIA's 2011 calendar at a most significant moment, exactly in time to become the 500th event counting for the championship. The WRC series started in 1973, and Greece's round has only twice been missing. The fuel crisis stopped the rally in 1974 and an FIA event rotation plan meant the event was not held in 2010 in any form. Only the rallies in Finland and Great Britain have counted for the world championship more often than Greece. This year there is a major organisational change. The event was once again run by ELPA, the national sporting federation and the national automotive touring company, but was promoted by a new company called Celeritas (meaning "Speed") founded by Greek businessman Aris Vovos, who in his alter ego is one of the country's most successful rally Photos: Maurice Selden drivers. Much of the organisation of this year's event was in the hands of his partner Pavlos Athanassoulas. There were some important changes in the itinerary from that of 2009. Pursuant to the FIA's current policies, there was a nighttime stage and (b) there was a different location for the remote service during the first day -at Kamena Vourla, instead of Itea. But it was the nighttime stage on the Saturday evening which caused anxiety among the crews. The last time the Acropolis Rally incorporated stages in the dark was in 1985, and the demise of this feature was originally on account of safety as well as the unfair advantage to the front running competitors because of dust. In the old days all the cars ran at one-minute intervals. Now the top drivers run at two or even three minute intervals, and on this year's event all the drivers tackled the night stage at three minute gaps. Although half-light or night time gravel tages have been run in recent years in Britain and in Japan, these have been in wet or damp conditions. It must be more than 20 years since a WRC event l1ad run a dry night gravel stage, where dust could be an issue. Kamena Vourla was familiar territory for the Acropolis Rally. It was the overnight halt Juho Hanninen and Mikko Markkula were the SWRC champions this rally, they're seen here in their Skoda Fabia. location on the event in the 1994-1997 period. The event was again based at Loutraki, the popular coastal spa town some 90km Wtl6t of Athens, with a ceremonial start in the capital city beneath the site of the historic Parthenon. Day 1 of the route again encompassed stages in central Greece, second day the stages were in the Peleponnese and the shorter final third day had stages in the hills behind Loutraki itself. All the stages were hard packed gravel which in dry conditions clean a lot and were expected to be very dusty. As in Argentina, the Power Stage was shorr - just under 4km, and this time used a road which was also formed part of three different special stages, including the night stage. There were several new ideas in the event's promotion, notably the inauguration of a slogan - Rally of the Gods. The total number of entries was low - only 4 2 cars -but the strength of competition was high. This time there were 18 World Rally Cars: for the first time six DS3s, ten Fiestas (each team running two official team cars) and two customer Minis. Of the Fords, still only the two Abu Dhabi entries ran with the new cylinder heads. Among the customer World Rally Car entries were two Dutch father-and-son entries. For the first time father Rene Kuipers was teamed with his son Dennis both in Fiesta WRCs while once again Peter van Merksteijn senior and junior each had a Citroen DS3 WRC. Dennis Kuipers had a brand new Fiesta while Dad had his son's old car ... When driving the previous-generation Ford Focus WRC cars, all four have competed the same event in identical cars. The Russian driver Evgeniy Novikov had a new codriver, Denis Giraudet, whJ;> was set to compete with two Russian drivers within a month. The second driver to be Vladimir Antonov, the new Global Promoter of the WRC, on the Midnight Sun revival rally in Sweden for historic cars. In the Drivers' series, the route confusion in Argentina cost Hirvonen the chance to sneak a one point lead in the series, he therefore started Greece 13 points behind Sebastien Loeb. In the Manufacturers' series Citroen Total led Ford Abu Dhabi by 33 points, while Petter Solberg's team was the best of the "single-entry" teams. In addition all ten registered SWRC drivers were present, but there were no Guest drivers. This was the fourth round of the series and a different Fiesta driver had won each of the previous rounds. All the Fiesta S2000s except for Turan's had 2011 specification engines. Among the non-registered drivers was once again the leading Saudi driver Yazeed Al Rahji but with a different codriver, now Bjorn Degandt, the Russian Nikita Kondrakhin, who won the "Group N" class 3 in Sardinia, again in an Evo IX, and Paulo Nobre who now had a brand new Mitsubishi R4. There was one other unusual aspect to the rally, the~• Athanassoulas effect! Lambros· Athanassoulas and his elder brother Pavlos are enthusiasts local to Loutraki, where they have various business interests, including the local Jet Oil fuel station opposite to the local Casino which itself serves as the rally headquarters, and they have become integrated into the whole Acropolis scene. While Pavlos works with Aris Vovos, 34 year old Lambros is a little known driver outside Greece, who has been embraced by fans as a folk hero of Greek rallying. For the 2011 Acropolis he launched a website to raise sponsorship from fans and admirers for his entry, and this time entered a Fiesta WRC. He remains the protege of Stratis Hatzipanayiotou, who u ed to compete very successfully under the pseudonym 'Stratissino'. For this event the only control tyres seen in the service park were Mikko Hirvonen and Jarmo Lehtinen drove their Ford Fiesta RS to a Petter Solberg and Chris Patterson finished fourth overall at Hermann Gassner and Katharina Wustenhagen finished in third place third overall at acropolis, seen here completely airborne.

Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena drove their Citroen DS3 to a silver medal finish at the Acropolis Rally. • the hard compound Michelins, even though there had been a lot of rain in the area in the weeks before the event which introduced mud to the stages in time for the recce. In one way the rain was welcome, as it made the thought of the controversial night stage more agreeable. Two drivers were in trouble during recce. Citroen driver Petter Solberg had an engine failure while Ford driver Mads Ostberg had engine mounting failure. Both had been driving Subaru recce cars! Solberg had to borrow a Subaru estate car to finish his work, while Ostberg had to use ratchet straps to tie the engine to the chassis. Ostberg's problem came on top of the devastating theft of his proven pace notes from previous years, taken during a train journey in Britain. "It was a big blow, especially because so many of the stages this year are the same. The other things in the bag were replaceable, but pacenotes never are." The recce itself was cartied out in the dry. Sebastien Loeb was quickest at the 3km Shakedown 0 . 7 seconds faster than Petter Solberg with Mikko Hirvonen another 0.6s further back, big margins! Conditions started off very muddy but as soon as the sun came out the surfaces started to dry. Eyvind Brynildsen made a surprisingly good time in his Skoda Fabia S2000, ahead of seven WRCars and 3.1 seconds better than the next SWRC driver Nasser Al Attiyah. There was curiosity over Brynildsen's time, "I waited a while as the conditions dried out and then went flat out to see how quick we could go. Just ask the photographers at the water crossing. I have never seen people run away so fast!" Armindo Araujo broke the suspension on his Mini on his fifth run and had to be rescued. To the extent conditions would change overnight would decide whether running first car on the road through Day 1 would present problems for the championship leader Sebastien Loeb. Day 1 - 6 Stages -Gravel - 141.33kms Everyone artived in Loutraki so 41 competitors took the start, but then Yazeed Al Rahji withdrew due to illness.' The Ceremonial Start on Thursday evening was held in Athens with the iconic Parthenon Acropolis building as backdrop, but not all was well. An hour before the start the rain arrived and it got heavier and heavier, finally stopping just a few minutes after the start. It was dry when the cars arrived at the start of the Thiva stage Dusty Times on the Friday morning, after a two hour transit section up from Loutraki and as expected Sebastien Loeb found it was a stage cleaning scenario, with fifth running Petter Solberg making best time, ten seconds faster than first running Loeb over a 23km stage, and with 16th running Evgeniy Novikov third! All cars were running at two minute intervals during the day. For Loeb the running order was specially difficult. Of the 141 stage kilometres on the day, he was running on virgin surfaces over 118km, as only stage 1 was repeated. The main challenge facing everyone, however, was the fact that during the 141km (which represented 40 percent of the total event stage distance) there was just one remote service. Anyway Solberg was fastest again on the 39km stage 2, the longest of the event, which had many muddy patches. Here Loeb punctured 5km from. the end of the stage but he was still able to make fourth fastest time! Latvala held second at the remote se.rvice after the second stage, 7.5s in front of Hirvonen, while Loeb was less than one second behind in fourth. Loeb was towards a half minute behind Solberg, with a mysterious electronic problem which lit up his warning lights after a water crossing. Ogier had a tyre pull off the rim. Villagra punctured and then lost his brakes. Athanassoulas withdrew after suffering a fracture of the track control arm and while Novikov was reported to have retired for an identical reason, in fact he sheared the bolrs attaching the TCA wishbone to the front upright, probably caused by stress when the wheel had lifted off the road in the inside of a corner, then touched the ground again. Stage 3 started dramatically when van Merksteijn Junior hit a rock in top gear and rolled, causing codriver Eddy Chevalier to be taken to hospital with back pains for precautionary checks. Father passed the crash scene without realising what had happened but then the stage was stopped for later cars. Hirvonen meanwhile punctured on stage 3 but only lost seconds and kept 2.9 seconds ahead of Loeb and by stage 4 Solberg was still unbeaten on the stages. Villagra was struggling with only three working brakes. By stage 5, the only stage of the day which was repeated, Ogier was coming into his own. He jumped from fifth to third place, so now the top five places were held in exact reversal of their running order, with Loeb suffering the worst of the conditions, together also with a front wheel puncture for about 10km. With one more A A~• ... ; • A ¥ ':~ ~: Bernardo Sousa and Antonio Costa drove their Ford Fiesta to a second place finish in SWRC, they finished 11th overall in the rally. stage to go Loeb was 53.2 seconds behind Solberg. Loeb around one minute behind? That sounds familiar... Ostberg slid off the road on stage 5 with less dramatic results. Father Morten later explained, "We believe that as a result of an earlier impact with a rock on the road the intercooler and also the cross member were damaged, this led to the erroneous impression of a problem with the power steering. In fact, the place where the suspension finally failed was very fortunate, Mads could easily have gone off the road at a very dangerous place." Oliveira stopped on stage 5 with unspecified problems. Amid the worries about the safety of codriver Eddy Chevalier, it went unnoticed that Peter van Merksteijn Senior had also retired, after he had also overturned on stage 5. Raikkonen found his car difficult on the first day, the front differential had broken. Villagra arrived with front end damage and finally withdrew after struggling with the consequences of the brake problems. Then came the dramas the final sta the teams August 2011 planned whether this was time for tactics, and what tactics there should be, and Latvala noticed something was wrong with the transmission on his way to the start of the final stage. He telephoned the team to warn them the car was switching without warning from two to four-wheel-drive and back again. "The last thing I wanted to do was tell the team by radio, as then Citroen would have known!" It was serious and lost him more than three minutes on the final stage, including pulling over to let rally leading Solberg drive past. Ogier decided to play tactics, voluntarily losing 15 seconds or so, but enough to drop from third to fourth which allowed Loeb and Hirvonen to pass him in the classification order, while Hirvonen lost a handful of seconds which in fact saw him rising from fourth to third, because of Latvala's trouble. Latvala finished the day a disappointed eighth. It had been a long day, and because of the night stage at the end of Day 2, Saturday likewise was going to be another long one. Nasser Al Atti ah started the event with high hopes in the SWRC, and led after the first stage but then the power steering failed on stage 2. Ott Tanak, on his first outing in Greece, took over the lead. Immediately in trouble was Prokop with front cliff problems and he lost a lot of time. Karl Kruuda had a spin and had trouble adjusting to the increasing in-car temperatures. Juho Hanninen punctured on the first stage, but only 5km from the end and on the second stage he hit a rock quite heavily but was nevertheless still second, ahead of Sousa. On stage 2 Eyvind Brynildsen broke the rear differential which left him with only front-wheel-drive while Hermann Gassner spun about 2km from the end of the stage. First time in Greece, third WRC event for Turan, he had a good steady morning in fifth place. Llovera was in a lot of discomfort finding conditions· tough going with his hand-controls. With a long delay waiting for the Stewards to award interruption times for stage 3 it was impossible to find out what inroads the SWRC cars were making into the ranks of World Rally Cars, but after stage 2 Tanak was already in eighth position overall. Al Attiyah damaged the rear suspension of his car and lost his brakes, and on stage 5 the team told him to stop on the stage as the SupeRally penalties would be less than he would incur if he struggled on. Prokop continued throughout the afternoon still with no front cliff, making many spins and finding it very difficult to drive. Tanak found it all very quick and difficult but good. Hanninen had another puncture while teammate Gassner found his gearbox was leaking at the remote service, he then lost his Continuedon , 18 Page 17

It was Hirvonen who was worried, wondering if it was the car that was slow or hi~ driving, "We are . so close but so far away." Latvala was in despair. He sensed the lack of power had to be turbo related, but did not know how. All he could see was that in the first three stages of the day he lost nearly a quarter of an hour.

-NOH 1:AL HOCK RAl!ING R 0 CHANIPIONSHIPSERll:S DUND NE Hardaway Takes It All By Tammie Wise Photos: CS Designs Alex Hardaway spent a lot of time in the air, Alex won all the heats this day and was one happy fella for many reasons. The first event of the 2011 season for the Nor Cal Rock Rac-ing Association would be held on June 18th. The heat of the week-end added to the heat the racers were turning up on the track. After a long anticipated wait, John Goodby (promoter and owner of Nor Cal Rock Racing) brought this 4wd racing back to Prairie City in style. 2011 would see an end of the two by two racing of the past and the introduction of all out Rock Racing for Nor Cal competitors .... With the addition of the qualifying spot to the grand daddy of all Rock Races KOH ( "King of the Hammers", which is held mid February in Johnson Valley, CA). having a three moto set up similar to that of the famed Motocross races that are held at Prairie City each year. The format would con-sist of 2 three lap motos and a 5 lap main. The competition was fast paced, challenging, and entertain-ing to be a part of. In order for all the drivers to get as much seat time as possible, John decided that rather then split the field all racers would run all three of the races. In addition to the new format, the Nor Cal crew had built a chal-lenging diverse track for the racers to run, with all the high flying and speed sections that Nor Cal fans have come to expect, as well as a rock pile that would put even the most seasoned rock crawlers in the field through their paces. The plan with the rock pile was to get the guys into low gear, it worked. John Goodby and crew would take the event to the next level, Mike Smith gave the fans a thrill when he spun across the track and disappeared into the surrounding brush. The classes for the day would consist of a "pro" and a "sports-man" class. The pro's had the option of paying an additional Jeremy Hengl and Randy Avery (Jeep) had a really good battle during the first moto, seen here with all the power they have to give. $100 to be a part of the KOH hunt. The pro purse was a guaran-teed $2000. The field consisted of 7 pro and 2 sportsman racers. The racers were ready for bat-tle, the Nor Cal crew was primed, and the spectators had no clue, as the first green flag dropped, the crowd watched from the famed hill top and the bleachers by the birds nest. All were in awe as the field came alive roaring up the hill and around the first right hand sweeper. No one had announced the new format to the onlookers, so the surprise could be heard as a roar of cheers rolling across the track. The first moto of the day was fast and furious. Recent KOH qualifier Alex Hardaway, in his #4481 Efficiency Delivery spon-sored buggy would lead the pack into the 2011 Nor Cal Rock Racing season, holding the top spot from flag to flag. The racer showed what he was made of set-ting a pace that wouldn't be chal-lenged all day. The fight for 2nd would be heated with Randy Av-ery and Jeremy Hengl going toe to toe.

Joe Hutchins flew his CS Designs sponsored buggy as long and as high as he could, here in beautiful level flight. third place. The toughest wreck on the day would belong to that of Mike Smith in his #56 Yoda Man racing buggy. As he came through the rhythm section on the front side of the track the buggy was sent spinning, luckily Mike was able to right the rig, but not before taking the racer in a pirouette across the track. Going into the second moto the teams would have plenty of time to get their rigs sorted. As most of the racers had found their pace in moto one the field spread out cleanly, the rock pile would bring them back together each lap as it was designed to do. The air and speed the guys were able to achieve through the other sections was impressive to say the least. Alex showed his talents and was able to hold the first place spot from moto to moto. Mechanical difficulties would slow Randy Avery in moto 2 and would move Harold into the second spot for the race. The hard start for the #56 wouldn't faze this diehard team, they would come back to run strong in the second moto and take the third spot for the run. The main event would be a spectacular display of speed and tri-umph. The two racers that earlier in the day were spinning and flip-ping around the track would show their talents rubber side down giv-ing Alex a run for his money. Mike Smith and Jeremy Hengl fought back and forth through out the race for the second spot with Mike taking it in the end.

Meanwhile, New York's Adrian Cenni just missed the track record by .02 seconds as he led the PRO-4x4 group. Saturday morning saw a light drizzle blanket the area dur-ing the final practice session, which made near perfect track conditions that lasted during the entire day. The first race of Round 3 was the six lap combined Clas-six/ Formula 4x4 race. The two classes are unique to Midwest off-road racing as they had their beginnings at Crandon and are really fan favorites. The Formula 4x4 quickly saw Bob Birkholz cuts inside of Brendon Rouse to take the win in Stock Truck, Bob finished in third place in the second race. the top three drivers establish themselves at the front of the field. Dave Miah and Brad LeMarche, both driving Ford Broncos, battled the entire six laps, never getting more than a couple of truck lengths apart from each other. While Milan Mazanac in his FORD F-150 kept the two front-runners hon-est, as he tucked in right behind the Broncos. At the finish it was Miah tak-ing the win, with LeMarche in second, and Mazanac in third. The Classix bunch saw local favorite Dave Weiland in his 2WD Chevy Blazer overtake hole shot winner Dale Chest-nut and his 2WD Ford Bronco on lap two for the lead. The top two racers held their posi-tions all the way to the finish. The final spot on the podium saw a couple of different driv-ers occupy the spot, but with two laps to go, Crandon's own Fay Statenzy in his 1973 Chevy Chevelle took control of third place. It is pretty safe to say, the meticulous Chevelle has com-peted at more Crandon races than any other race vehicle in Crandon's history. Next up was the Stock Truck group, which saw one rook-ie driver takin on ten vet-eran truck racers. The rookie, X-Games Snowboarder Nick Baumgartner, grabbed the hole shot and never relinquished the lead. Matt Ives held the runner-up spot the entire way; the Up-per Michigan native got close to Baumgartner on the final lap, but ran out of time to challenge for the win. It looked like Bran-don Rouse in his 2011 Chevy Silverado had the final podium spot, but Red Bud winner Bob Birkholz made a late race charge for a third place photo finish. The fastest TORC Sports-man division, Super Truck was next on the schedule. Super Trucks are nearly identical to the PRO-2WD trucks except for a different engine package. The six lap race included a mid race mandatory yellow. The land rush start saw Lower Michigan's Dan Baudoux lead from start to finish. Behind the multi-time class champion, the runner-up position would be occupied first by Crandon native Zane Roberts, and then Minnesota's Don Williams, who overtook , Roberts on lap four, only to have Roberts regain the spot as Wi"lliams pulled of the track with mechanical issues. While this was going on, Bob Gremler found his groove and over took Roberts on the final lap. At the checkered flag it was the Ford of Baudoux taking the win, with the Chevy's of Gremler and Robert finishing second and third. It was the bronze medal for Zane Roberts in the Super Truck action, he's seen here all nice and clean at high speed. Nick Baumgartner had a really good day, he took a third place finish in Round 1 and took the win in the second round for a big win in Stock Truck. The largest Sportsman divi-sion, Light Buggy was next in line. The field of seventeen VW based racers saw Neenah, Wisconsin's Matt Gerald lead from flag to flag. The reigning class champion Greg Stingle shadowed Gerald the entire way, but never got close enough to challenge for the win.

This moved Maciosek into third. At the checkered flag, Scott Beauchamp returned to his winning ways, with Don Demeny finishing second, and after a first turn spin, Larry Ma-ciosek charged his way back to a third place finish.

The final Sportsman race of the day had ten Super Buggies take the green flag. The veteran from Las Vegas, Larry Job, im-mediately grabbed the lead and held it all the way to the check-ered flag. Teenager CJ Greaves nearly matched Job lap for lap, but never got close enough to challenge for the lead. New York's Bob Klaus held the third position from start to finish. Throughout the day TORC was raffling ride alongs in the TORC RAM two-seat PRO-2WD pace truck. There were several winners, but three lucky ticket holders got the ride of their lives, as Walker Evans suit-ed up to put the truck through its paces. The speed he car-ried through Turn One was incredible, and really surprised everyone in attendance. The distance off the Traxxas Fly Zone Jump was second to none, and the intensity he hit the in-field whoops made you think he was leading the final lap of the Potawatomi Chairman's Cup. It looked like the Off-Road Leg-end was planning a comeback. Once Evans performed his last demo, seventeen PRO-Light trucks came charging into Cran-don' s infamous Turn One. Before the field could clear the Red Bull front straightaway jump, the red flag was waving as a mid-pack incident saw several trucks spinning and collecting into one another blocking the track.

A total of ten trucks lined up for the start. Adrian Cenni won the hole shot, with Mon-ster Energy's Johnny Greaves and Red Bull's Ricky Johnson right behind New York City's "Wildman." The lead was short -lived as Cenni's pace drasti-cally slowed, due to a flat rear tire. As Cenni was fading, Scott Douglas challenged Johnson for second. The pressure from Douglas seemed to get Johnson to pick up the pace and onto the bumper of Greaves. At the same time Douglas was feeling pressure from Mark Jenkins and Steve Barlow. Every position on the track could change at a mo-ment's notice. At the halfway mandatory yellow, the run-ning order was Greaves, John-son, Douglas, Mark Jenkins, and Steve Barlow. When green flag racing resumed, everyone stepped up their game. An ener-gy drink battle broke out for the top spot. In the process, both drivers broke the track record. Traxxas' Mark Jenkins made an aggressive move that put AM-SOIL Scott Douglas back in the order, as Metal Mulisha driver Steve Barlow took advantage of the situation to move into fourth. Then .with two to go, with Greaves in the lead and John-son in second, Barlow moved into the final podium spot, as Jenkins slowed his pace. Scott Douglas tried everything he could, but couldn't get past Bar-low in the remaining laps. At the finish it was Johnny Greaves 1st, Ricky Johnson 2nd, Steve Barlow 3rd, and Scott Douglas 4th. The PRO-4x4 Oakley Bomb Award for fastest lap went to Johnny Greaves. His fastest lap broke the old track record set by Rick Huseman by nearly .2 seconds. Many of the competitors commented on the great condi-tion of the 1. 7 5 mile layout. The track maintained a high level grip all day long with a minimal amount of watering. One of the reasons could have been a paper mill byproduct solution that is used to hold moisture in and keep dust to a minimum on area logging roads. Whatever the reason, it meant incredible top speeds and record lap times. When the competitors awoke Sunday morning, they found a section of the track covered in • nearly two feet of water. Heavy rains swept through much of the area all night long. This caused the infield pond, known as Parson's Pond to overflow onto the front straightaway. Since the ground was already saturated from above normal rainfall in the area, there was nowhere to pump the water. At the morning drivers' meeting TORC and Crandon officials cancelled all racing activities. With that said, everyone start-ed home much earlier than planned. The cancelled round of racing and the Potawatomi Chairman's Cup Race will be made up at a later date. The details will be announced in the near future. As the teams were packing up, everyone continued to talk about Saturday's incredible track conditions as well as the record crowd that came out on Saturday to wat~h some of the best PRO and Sportsman off-road racing the Midwest has ever seen. During the month of July the TORC schedule splits. The Sportsman racers are headed to the Langlade County Fair-grounds in Antigo, Wisconsin for two days of racing beginning on July 9. While the PRO driv-ers head to the Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina for two nights of racing beginning July 24.

With a number of the desert races across the Unit-ed States getting smaller or moving south of the border it's good to know that new and even longer races are still showing up. At the be-ginning of the year VORRA chief Wes Harbor announced VORRA would be doing its very first ever 500-mile race. Named the USA 500 this new race venue would be hosted by Sparks Nevada's John Ascuagas Nugget Hotel Casino Resort just outside of Reno. By mid-June a title sponsor was on boarcr and the race was renamed the Master Pull VORRA USA 500. Excitement was in the air waiting fo,: this race to become part of off-road rac-ing history. The race course would be an all new track layout tak-ing us on the north side of Interstate 80 and returning after a five year hiatus to the Lovelock area and to the original track where VORRA raced in the late 90's. The start finish line was located right off I-80 in Fernley about 29-miles east of Reno. The track layout would take rac-ers 45-miles out of Fernley to Pit A where we would start a 155-mile loop then return 30-miles back to Fernley for the finish. Early pre running and recon had racers think-ing this was going to be a fast and easy course, but by the time the race started the pre-running had chewed up the silt beds and moved some rocks around which made the course super challenging. The gas line road with its roller-coaster gotcha's would prove challenging as well if you didn't have your course notes accurate. Thursday night in Victo-rian Square right outside the host hotel Nugget is a weekly local Farmer's Market which kicked off the festivities for the weekend. Race car show Hall Racing took the win in the Class 1 competition, they finished second overall in the race, 13 minutes out of the overall. The Class 10 win went to Red Team Racing, all of their competition were dnf's, Red Team is seen here in action. and shine with autograph session was followed by a fund raiser at the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame where the 2011 inductees were announced. Friday af-ternoon Victorian Square was open back up for Tech and Registration. In the adjacent lot was rock crawling and freestyle motocross expedi-tions. Contingency row also stretched nearly 4-blocks. Fri-day night the Nugget hosted the drivers meeting with the National Anthem and race car drive off immediately following. Saturday morn-ing at 8:29 the "production" classes of 9, 11, full metal and Zukiworld. Two hours later the pro and sportsman classes would start. The time limit for this race would be 21 hours to complete the 529-mile distance. First off the line was the lone class 9 entry of Jay Schro-eder (903). Unfortunately Schroeder was only able to make it the check point 3 be-fore dropping out of the race. Another lone entry class was the UTV's where Dennis Jean (1959) completed one lap for the class win.

Pre-race favorite Sam Berri (149) was down early with rear shock spring failure. Shannon Harwell (132) was out front and running well with a 12 minute lead until the trans-mission broke taking them out of the race. The Hall Rac-ing (6) Extreme truck had rear differential problems at mid race but stopped for repairs and continued racing. Rick Massie (24) cruised on most of the day and night and mo-tored on towards the finish. The Hall racing truck despite the down time ran a faster pace and made the pass on the last lap and went on for the win. Massie drove on for 2nd place. Greg Kudrna (101) finished the race in 3rd place. class with two entries. Matt Myers (863) was off the line in his full size Ford Expedition ahead of Damien Michelin (7611) in the Rod Hall racing H3. Myers didn't pre-run the first leg of the course so Mi-chelin quickly caught up and passed for the lead. Not a few miles later however Michelin had a flat tire and Myers moved into the lead. He car-ried that lead to just before Pit B where the engine started running hot and upon inspec-tion found the wires to the fans melted. While making the repairs Michelin passed and never relinquished the lead after that. Myers would have a good run through-out the night after handing the wheel to his wife for the middle leg of the race. At the checkers Michelin was the winner 45 minutes ahead of Myers. Incredibly they scored 10th and 11th overall as well. The class 11 's had 3 en-tered and as a class they voted to race the entire 529 mile distance. The 3 cars battled it out most of the day. Despite lawn darting along the gas line rollers the Desert Dingo team (1107) took out the front fenders, bumper and skid plate but no mechanical damage. Later in the night they were bumped by an over-anxious class 7 truck, a no-no in any racing, bad voodoo karma happens to those who nerf an 11 car. The bump knocked the deck lid into the alternator pulley breaking the pulley. They were able to JB weld the pulley back together and continue on to the finish. Good news is they were under the allotted time limit; bad news is Bob Messer (1177) was there first for the class win. Gary Herrod (1112) made the finish line but timed out and completed just two laps. A new class to VORRA was the 2ukiworld class. This class is limited to Suzuki based ve-hicles like the short wheel base Samuri. There were six entered and were to run two laps around the course. These short wheel base entries had 6 entered and were to run 2 Japs around the course. Da-vid Capell (21045) finished the race in 11:27:08 for the class win. Jason Hutchinson (25150) placed 2nd finish-ing the race with a t ime of 13:42:27.

BLUE RIBBON COALITION Calls for Legislation to Amend Recreation Permitting Process The survival of local clubs, the backbone of a land manager's OHV resources are at risk. POCATELLO, ID (July 21)--The BlueRibbon Coalition, a national trail based recreation advocacy group, issues a call for legislation to amend the recreation permitting process on Bureau of Land Manage-ment and U.S. Forest Serv.i.ce managed lands. The Coalition cites numerous examples of an overly bureaucratic process and arbitrary application of fees and other requirements that unfairly harm non-grofit recreational clubs. The Coalition's Executive Director, Greg Mumm, said, "the current implementation of the recreation permit regu-lations no longer serves the public interest or support the goals and objectives of land use planning. The recreation permit process must be re-vised. We believe that legisla-tion is necessary to fix the problem." Brian Hawthorne, the Co-alition's Public Lands Policy Director, is concerned that the permit process is endangering the existence of not-for-profit recreation clubs. He says the clubs often partner with land managers, providing assistance in management, maintenance and enforcement. "Federal land managers need healthy and growing clubs that can help manage recreation, espe-cially in light of declining bud-gets. Sadly, some land manag-ers require expensive permits for a simple club ride of only a few persons." Don Amador noted that his-toric and popular competitive events that have been occurring without problems have been recently subjected to arbitrary Dusty Times

Page 41

fees. He also observed that· in some areas, the application process to obtain an SRP is being used to prohibit and/ or severely restrict otherwise allow-able activities. "We have tried for nearly a decade to encourage the land managers to streamline the permitting process. These efforts have not been effec-tive, even when we have willing agency partners. The time has come for Congress to step in and mandate a solution." The BlueRibbon Coalition is calling on its members to ask · their U.S. Representatives to support a legislative fix to the permitting problems. The Coalition posted a web-page detailing problems with the permitting process and outlining its suggested solu-tions. View the webpage here: pub lie-lands/? section =srp It also has asked recreational users to send in examples of arbitrary implementation of recreation permit regulations. A few examples have already been posted on the Coalition's permit webpage.
