Trail Notes ... SCORE HAS NEW OWNER -never thought it would happen. Sal Fish has stepped down as the leader Of SCORE for nearly 40 years of Stewardship and passed the reins to Roger Norman, CEO of HORA. Roger has lots of experience in the Off Road Racing Industry, he is a racer, CEO of HORA and had committed countless hours to the activity. Sal has more hours accumulated as CEO of SCORE over the last decades than I care to count. He is going off to a well deserved rest of the life vacation and I hope that everything he wishes for actually happens. He has sheparded SCORE through all the good times and the bad times and always rose to the occasion as required. So we salute both men, Sal and Roger for their dedication to our beloved sport of Off Road Racing. FRANK DEANGELO JOINS THE OFF-ROAD MOTORSPORTS HALL OF FAME BOARD OF DIRECTORS -The Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame is proud to announce Frank DeAngelo has joined the Board of Directors.

WITH THE RECENT NEWS -of Roger Norman acquiring the SCORE Desert Series and the formation of a World Championship of Desert Racing, Trophy Truck teams are scrambling to put plans in place for the 2013 season. The World Championship of Desert Racing consists of three rounds of racing in the US, at HORA events and three rounds in Mexico racing the SCORE Desert series. Many SCORE racers are eager to add the HORA races to their schedule in order to chase a World Championship crown. "We are anxious to compete with our Red Bull Trophy Truck in an International series for a World Championship," said 44 year racing veteran Gustavo Vildosola, "We are about to enter a new era. Roger Norman has experienced racing as a driver and a promoter. It gives him a totally different point of view. He has some great ideas that I think will revolutionize the sport. We look forward to competing in the World Championship series." SCORE, HORA and the World Championship of Desert Racing will have unprecedented media coverage including live internet streaming and one hour episodes televised on major sports networks nationwide. Handling commentary for the World Championship series is a man who knows what it means to be a champion. Ivan Stewart will be sharing his perspective and vast knowledge of racing, which includes 82 victories and 10 driver's championships during eacli broadcast. "I feel honored to be involved in such a big step in our future," Said Ivan.Stewart, "Change is good. There is a lot of potential to expand offroad racing. Roger is implementing many ideas that will be positive for the sport." SCORE Trophy Truck racer Cameron Steele will also be competing for the World Championship title in his Monster Energy, Yokohama #16. "We are getting the truck ready for the Southpoint Vegas 250 as we speak," said Cameron, "I'm very optimistic about the World Championship series. The media exposure is just what a team like ours needs; our race program relies on sponsorship dollars to run." Monster Energy Drink was anxious to take advantage of the increased exposure the series will give. "The minute the word went out, Monster was on the phone," said BJ Baldwin, "I'm excited about the new races and new challenges. We will be able to run for the HORA championship, another SCORE championship and the World Championship title too: For a new, independent team like ours, running the entire World Championship series gives us incredible media exposure for the sponsors we have and is a great incentive for new sponsors to come on board," says Kevin Davis of Green Army Motorsports, "The series gives us maximum exposure in print, internet and on television. Justin Davis and Kyle LeDuc will be driving our Jim co Trophy Truck this season. We have some things to learn but the team has lots of racing experience. The World Championship series will be a good test to see where we stand against the best." Kyle LeDuc was equally excited about running the series. "I couldn't be any happier racing a Trophy Truck with Justin Davis in 2013," said Kyle LeDuc, "I grew up watching my Dad racing in HORA. The competition this series will bring to the desert is unmatched." The series will be supportive of every class of racers, not just the Trophy Trucks. "We will be reviewing all rules that deal with safety, Class structure, protest procedures and how we determine the winners," said Roger· Norman, "We will be making several changes with safety in mind. Official results will be determined promptly and all decisions will be final. The rules for lodging a protest are clear and will be followed to the letter. Once trophies are awarded, the results will stand. If evidence of rule infractions surface after the event, steps will be taken to penalize the offenders at the next race." The playing field will be level for every team and the television coverage will show a wide range of classes competing. You can see samples of the coverage at http:// Don't forget the World Championship of Desert Racing for the bikes too. The World Championship title is earned by racing all three SCORE Desert Series events and the National Hare and Hound held July 12-14 during the Reno 500. It all begins at the HORA, South Point Vegas 250 January 11-13. Make plans to join us in Las Vegas on Jan. 11-13. Driver registration is open for the South Point Vegas 250. Drivers who get their entries in early can take advantage of 2012 entry fees. Entries for the 250-mile event have a choice of two different payment options. OPTION 1: Entries submitted and paid in full by 5 pm on Monday, December 31, 2012 will pay our current 2012 entry fees. Racers selecting this option will have their starting position in class determined by blind draw from this group of entries. OPTION 2: Entries submitted after the December 31 deadline and paid in full by 5 pm on Friday, January 4, 2013 will pay 2013 entry fees.

SEASON OPENER PREVIEW To 2013 RALLY AMERICA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP -Over 40 Rally Teams Ready to Tackle the Icy Roads of the Sno*Drift Rally. The kick-off to the 2013 Rally America National Championship is coming quickly and teams are lining up to take on the snow and ice-covered roads of the Sno*Drift Rally on January 25-26th in Atlanta and Lewiston, MI. Event organizers report approximately a foot of snow has fallen in the local area in recent weeks. A year ago, the Sno*Drift Rally was an extremely icy affair and while there are a couple weeks to go the roads are looking much more like roads than an ice skating rink. With the season just around the comer, the Sno*Drift Rally and Rally America are ready to welcome the return of many oflast year's teams, including the 2012 National Champions and class winners for another year of exciting rally action. Four-time Rally America National Champions and last year's overall Sno*Drift Rally winners, David Higgins from Trefeglwys, England and co-driver Craig Drew from Forest of Dean, England are back once again to fly the flag for Subaru Rally Team USA and attempt to continue the team's winning ways. "I'm really looking forward to getting the 2013 season started," said Higgins, "The Sno*Drift Rally is a funny event as when you are doing it you hate every minute because the icy conditions are so tough. You're always centimeters away from disaster and slipping off-road at any moment!" To keep his skills and reflexes sharp, Higgins spent much of his Rally America off-season driving for Subaru Rally Team China where he took two wins and their first Chinese rally title. "The rally events I competed in last year for Subaru China will be a great help for me to run Sno*Drift. The seat time is so important," added Higgins. Higgins and Drew will once again be challenged by longtime Mitsubishi Rockstar Energy Drink Rally Team rivals, Antoine L'Estage from St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec and co-driver Nathalie Richard from Halifax, Nova Scotia. L'Estage and Richard finished second overall in the 2012 Rally America National Championship and later in the year the Rockstar Energy team took home the Canadian Rally Championship as well as the coveted North America Rally Championship. Said L'Estage recently, "I've always loved rallying in the snow and ice and once again this year, we'll be contesting Sno*Drift in the same trusted Mitsubishi EVO X that helped us claim the 2012 Canadian and North American Rally Championships. It's always tough going up against the big factory teams of Subaru and Ford but we'll be there to fight for the title and hopefully we can improve last year's Sno*Drift finish by one spot, putting us at the top of the podium!" Last year's Super Production (SP) Class Champs, Lauchlin O'Sullivan from San Francisco, CA along with Scott Pumam from Minneapolis, MN, are back to continue their success right where they left off in their 2008 Subaru WRX ST!. But David Sterckx from Los Angeles, CA and Karen Jankowski from San Marcos, CA are expected to challenge O'Sullivan and Pumam's category supremacy after nearly finishing in a tie with the 2012 SP Champions in just their first full year of national competition. The always-exciting Two-Wheel (2WD) Drive Class is currently missing the entry of last year's Champions, Chris Duplessis and Alex Kirhurani, but their runner up competition will be back with a newly improved 2012 Scion xD platform piloted by legendary rallyist Andrew Comrie-Picard from Hermosa Beach, CA and Jeremy Wimpey from Stage College, PA. "The team has been working very hard all through the off season, really there has been no off-season," said Comrie-Picard, "The new xD is the best-built 2WD rally car I've ever seen • in fact one of the best rally cars I've ever seen -with a load of amazing innovations. Lighter, stronger, better suspension, gearbox, harness, ergonomics, lights - every detail has been improved. And the team has upped its professionalism and preparation even further with team-building exercises and an even better service setup. We are going to crush the Championship this year!" Comrie-Picard and Wimpey will still need to fend off a multitude of furious 2WD talent that includes multi-Central Region Group 2 champ Chris Greenhouse from Cincinnati, OH and 2009 Rally America Rookie of the Year Dillon Van Way from Carencro, I.A in his much improved turbo-charged 2011 Ford Fiesta. Local rally legends will also appear on the icy Sno*Drift roads and fans should instantly recognize Henry and Cynthia Krolikowski, winners of six consecutive Rally America Central Region Championships -the longest winning streak within Rally America. Multi-time Production Class champion, Steve Nowicki from West Bloomfield, MI, along with co-driver Jimmy Brandt from Lake Odessa, MI, will enter the 2013 Sno*Drift Rally with their historic 1980 Mitsubishi Fire Arrow, the very make and model that made him the driver to beat of his era. The Sno*Drift Rally is a fan friendly event that begins with a driver meet & greet before the race begins on Friday afternoon at 1:00pm in downtown Lewiston, MI and again at 8:00am Saturday morning in Atlanta, Ml. Fans will be treated to a Super Special Stage on Saturday at the Lewiston Sand & Gravel allowing viewers to watch a complete rally stage from start to finish from a single vantage point. It's a great way to spend the day watching exciting rally action from a single viewing location.

~~,m~HENDERSON 250 sourapas/Maccachren overall By Judy Smith Photos: Trackside Photo .. Steve Sourapas and Robby MacCachren made it look easy, they drove their Ford Geiser to the Trick Truck win and the overall win as well. Henderson, NV: The BITD finale for 2012, its three-race Hen-derson event, was won overall by Rob MacCachren driving the Steve Sourapas Ford Trick Truck, This event is a three-ring-circus of off road racing. Crowded into the small spaces permitted for an event, the BITD can't fit all their racers onto the track at one time, so they're forced to send them out in three.increments. This meant that the motorcy-cles, quads, and UTVs, which used a slightly different course than the cars and trucks, started just after sunrise. They then did their laps, and were all just about finished as the first batch of Sportsman vehi-cles and limited buggies and trucks took off at 9 a.m., for their two-lap event on the 79 mile long course. Then, as they were finishing, the Trick Trucks and faster car classes took off at 12:40, for their three-lap event. The course was reported to be "just like last year's." While all this went on, the air crackled with radio messages, as teams asked for help retrieving dis-abled vehicles, racers reported their location, and race officials plotted how best to get to the downed competitors and drag them back to safety. There were spectator areas in a three or four spots, but for the most part it's not an easy race to spectate, and this seems deliberate, because the BLM does not want spectators picking their own vantage points. With a serpentine course of this type, it's probably for the best, be-cause in order to get from point A to point B, it would often be neces-sary to cross the active race course: always a bad choice. The .weather was mild. The storms that had blown through California seemed to hang over the mountains to the south and west, creating beautiful sunsets and sunrises, but not bringing rain, or even much wind. Nighttime temps were chilly, but during the day it was comfortable, though not warm enough for shorts and t-shirts. Forty five cars and trucks started the first heat. When it ended, the winning team in Class 1100 was Bryan Folks and Ryan Marley in a Ford powered Banning. They'd had a flat, and then had stopped to pick up a new spare. But they didn't make a driver change, feeling that it would take too much time in such a short event. Their time was 3:06:37. Dwayne Reinert finished second in the class, with Dorie Savage navigating their unknown brand of car. He broke a link pin on lap two, and broke a rear arm, but just kept going. He'd had no brakes after losing the link pin. Their time was 3:54:22. In third it was Steve Waters who did all the driving, while Daniel Osborn navigated. They said they'd had no flats, and it had been "un-eventful." Their time was 3:55:02 and they were the final finisher in the class. In Class 2000 Hank Winter drove his Bunderson to the win, reporting "no trouble, zero flats." He said he'd won the champion-ship by getting the victory. His time was 3:13:41. Vince Viola was a very close sec-ond place in his Lothringer. Drew Loftus navigated for him, and they had no GPS for the whole first lap. Loftus kept "messing with it" and finally it started up. There were no other problems, and their time was 3:14:58. In third it was Ross Mattox in an Amplified Performance chassis. He drove the entire distance, had a flat on the second lap and changed it on course. He lost the lead doing that, and "never could make it up." His time was 3:21:02. Fourth place went to his broth-er, Ryan Mattox, in an AlumiCraft. He'd had to re-jet the motor, and he'd changed a flat also. His time was 3:27:30. In fifth place it was Brian Mc-Caslin and Ryan Gordon in an "old Raceco". They were all from Washington state. They said they'd had GPS probrems. Their time was 3:58:03. Sixth place was earned by the family team of Chad, Justin and Jeremy Evans. Chad and Justin Justin Loftin took the gold medal in Class 1 in his Jimco at Henderson, Justin had a few minutes on his competition at the checkers. drove, Jeremy navigated. The studs came out of their left rear wheel at Mile 11 of lap 2 and the wheel went away in front of them. They tracked it down and then got to a BFG pit and got some new studs. But it cost them an hour. Their time was 4:29:37. They were the last in the class to finish. Class 6000 was won by P.J. Jones in his Trophylite. He had "Doc" Chantler as navigator. They had two flats and one spare. They drove 20 miles on the other flat which totally ate away all of its tread. P.J. said, "I made a mistake". Then they got another flat, but changed it in a pit. Everything else was o.k. Their time was 3:15:41. Second place went to Brandon Hollander, who drove it all, and Trevor Brown who navigated. They said there'd been "no major dam-age" and described the course as "rough." Their time was 3:17:59. In third it was Ben Abatti, III, who'd had the lead, but on the last lap caught a rock ad flattened a tire. He changed it, but it cost him six or seven minutes, including stopping for a new spare. He said, "I started using my brain." His time was 3: 18: 12. Troy and Gary Messer finished fourth. Troy drove lap one, Gary drove lap 2. They said that their "co-driver caught on fire." Then explained that the muffler is on that side of the truck, and it blew towards the truck rather than away, and melted the navigator's seat belt. Rodney Honburger was doing the navigating, and toasting. They also had a flat. Their time was 3:29:07. The team of Chris Wacker, who drove lap one, and Jeff Mortis, who drove lap 2, were fifth. Ryan laspar-ro and David Husen navigated. On the first lap they lost a cooling fan and had it fixed in their pit. Their total time was 4:09:27. Last in the class to finish, in sixth place, was the team of Ben Phillips Dave Lunsford and Sam Johnson, who used up 5:57:59 get-ting their two laps completed. In Class 5000 there was just one entry, but they didn't let that damp-en their spirits. They decided to try to win their heat "overall." Steve Alexander, Doug Roorda, Gavin Ferguson and Kris Trajano teamed in their nice car to give it a go. Al-exander drove lap one with Trajano navigating and Roorda drove lap 2 with Ferguson navigating. They had just one flat on a rock and no other problems. They finished 9th "overall", only 19 minutes shy of that win. Their time was 3:22:27. In Class 8100 there were three starters. Tim Casey, Bill Rante and Scott Casey (Tim's son) got the win in their Ford. This was the first time Scott had ridden in a race - he said it was "Awesome!" They had no problems, and won the season points championship for Class 8100. They said it was a "tight race" all day, and they'd had only a 30 second lead at the end of lap one. They had one flat, right in the pit and didn't know it until their crew yelled at them. They also had a "leaker" and changed it at pit one. Their time was 3:36: 11. In second it was David Winner, Steve Erdelyi, Matt Coates and Chris Amrein in a Ford. Amrein · drove lap one with Erdelyi navi-gating and then Erdelyi drove lap two with Coates navigating. They said they'd had 'no problems, a really smooth day." Their time was 3:42:33. Third place was earned by Brian Day, who drove both laps, and Steven Pelerine, who navigated in their Ford F-150 extended cab long bed. They said they'd had "no prob-lems", a flawless day. Their time was 3:57:54. Class 3000, went to the team of Cole, age 16, and Dawson, age 14, Pfister. Cole did the first lap, and Dawson did the second lap. It was the first race for both of them, and they had no problems, no flats. Their time was 3:31:39. In second place it was Nie Bayes and Jeff Golson in a Predator. Bayes started and Golson did the second lap. They said they'd had no problems, another "flawless" day. Their time was 3:32:50. .... € -..._ _________________________ ~-..;:... ___ ....._ _ _.;.·~~·~ ...... _________ """'-___ __.

chran navigated for both. They said there'd been a "driver error", and Josh Reider had missed a tum in the dust and broke "some pieces" on the truck. The BITD "came and saved our butt", with spare parts. They lost "an hour or two". Said Reider, "I turned a good day into a long, horrible day." Their time was 6:29:55 and they were the last finisher in the first race. Many of the Class 1800 (Sports-man) entries, were Trick Trucks with drivers who wanted a prerun before heading out into their own event later in the day. It was a little nervous making, because if the pre-run vehicle, (which was for quite a few, the same truck they'd race later) became disabled or stuck, they could be late to the start of their own event. Some planned to "prerun" for only one lap, hoping that meant they'd be safely back in time for their race's start. Apparently all that didn't both-er Jason and Rich Voss in their Ford. They stayed out for both laps and took the Sportsman win. In second place it was the team of Faith Kincaid and Jake Miller in their 1600ccc VW powered Porter. Faith drove lap one and Miller drove lap two, his first time driving (he usually navigates.) Mark Miller, Faith's dad, also navigated. They had no trouble at all with the car and did their two laps in 4:22:58. In third it was Gary and Tyler Leavitt in their very nice looking, brand new Class 1100 sedan. The uncle, Gary, drove and nephew Tyler navigated. They had no prob-lems at all, and are hoping to get more Class 1100 cars to give the BITD series a try. They're think-ing they'd like to race the Vegas to Reno event in the coming season. Their time here was 5:20:42. There was one entry in the 4400 category, and that was Billy Bunch, Tareck Karm, Craig John-son and Brandon Thompson in a Jeep. They did their required two laps and finished at 2:20 p.m., in 5:20:47 to chalk up another win. Meanwhile, as the final few stragglers were finishing, the third A nice win in the Class 10 action went to Philip Heynan, Philip had four minutes on his competition when he took the checkers. race was well on its way, having started at about 20 minutes before 1 p.m. There were entries in Trick Truck, 1500, 6100, 1200, 1000, 7200, and 8000. There were 72 cars and trucks out on the track, along with a few leftovers from the earlier heat. Nineteen of them were Trick Trucks and 19 of them were Class 1500 cars, while the rest were a mix of 6100, 1200, 1000(12 of these guys, most with Ford motors), 7200 and Class 8000. They lined up double file, except for the fast quali-fier, the Steve Sourapas truck with Rob MacCachren at the wheel, which got to start all by itself. The rest of the Trick Trucks and 1500s went off two-at-a-time, every min-ute. Then, starting with the 6100 cars it tightened up to two every 30 seconds, except that if there was an uneven number of cars in a class, the odd one got to start by himself. The weather stayed clear, a bit brisk, but good for the drivers. The ground was dry, so there was dust, and only breez_es to move it away, rather than a steady wind. It did occasionally get very dusty on the course with so many vehicles crowded into such a short distance. Only a few moments passed before the radio started to get busy. Car #1044, Tim and Nick Carolan, had two flats about 20 minutes into the race; and Broe Ross, in a 7200 truck, was "out of the race" and would limp to the alternate pit area. Erick Jacobs and Jim Tucker need-ed to have an alternator brought out to them, and Jeff Holmes and Carl Fitts were "off course" at Mile 67. And later, "We're looking for #1017 - anyone have info on 1017?" Perhaps the most interesting mes-sage was the one that came over the air at 2:22 - Car #1537 was "done for the day and needs a tow." That was Robby Gordon, the season overall points leader. Was he now out of the running? Or could some-one figure out how to fix the race car in a hurry? Gordon's car was towed into his main pit, and the crew decided to see what could be done about its problem. A crank sensor wire was broken. The statistics people on his team and in BITD had it figured out that since he had such a big points lead, as long as he finished, he could still win the season points. Everyone had to "throw out" his worst race, and this one would cer-tainly be Gordon's "worst." So they decided he'd go on, even after los-ing about an hour with being towed back to the main pit and repaired. Then, when he was ready to go racing again, the big question was how to get back to where he'd been disabled and towed from, legally? The BLM had strictures against Macrae Glass took the winning honors in the Class 8 contest, Macrae had 39 seconds in hand when he took the checkers in his Ford pickup. driving in certain areas, across "on aJeepSpeed" and had to spend certain roads, and so on. So, after four or five minutes in a pit for consulting with some BITD folks repair.

He said he'd set the fastest time for the last lap, "We were pushin' really hard on the last lap."

He said that on the second lap he'd been running third and the car started "spittin' off" serpen-tine belts. He had a bunch with him, so was able to replace them, but doesn't know why they flew off.

I __ !.:..~I PRAIRIE CITY CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND Berri sweeps Class 1 Text & Photos: Troy Robinson The Class 11 win on Saturday went to Two Larry's Racing, the Larry's group had to settle for a second place finish on Sunday. Vorra celebrated its 37th championship race weekend at Prairie City SVRA just outside of Sacramento on October 26-27, 2012 with a double header race weekend and a Halloween party in between. Using the vast expanses of Prairie City, VORRA set up two separate tracks each over 1.2 miles in length. Each round of racing used one of the dif-ferent tracks utilizing most of the infield and the back section as well. Saturday was a more technical track down into the infield and up by the east turn was a super tight zig zag that brought cars down to first gear and had some trucks up on the bike getting around. Sunday's The gold medal honors in Class 10 for both days went to Red Team Racing, they spent more time in the air than on the ground. Don German took the Group T win in the Saturday contest, Don was the sixth place finisher in the Sunday competition. track was opened up a bit run-ning the longer straights of the back section south of the main pit area. Saturday night's Halloween party featured a bar-be-que and costume contest that is prov-ing-to be one for the ages with some really unique and off the wall costumes. And of course the catered dinner kept the tummy's full. Making his return to Vorra after taking the summer off to focus on BITD was Sam Berri driving his Acura Class 1. Sam didn't disappoint taking all three moto wins on both days. He even started the final moto backwards and still pulled off the moto win. Finishing second both days was Ryan Sargent who made all the races this year and took the Class 1 title to boot. On Saturday Team Bankruptcy blew the motor in his Class 10 car so drove back to Reno overnight and picked up his Class 1 car to race on Sunday. He placed 3rd in class on Sunday.

&flll 1991 SAN l=ELIPE Ragland Wins overall By Judy Smith Photos: Trackside Photo l Larry Ragland was the big winner at San Felipe in the Class 8 Chevrolet, taking both the Class 8 and overall titles by just three minutes, and he accomplished a real Mfirst*, the first car class vehicle to beat the best motorcycle time and he did it by about seven minutes. Gradually picking his way through a long line of Unlim-ited Class cars, Larry Ragland moved steadily past his com-petitors in the SCORE San Fe-lipe 250 to earn the overall win faster than the bikes with his Chevrolet pickup. Ragland aver-aged a speedy 61. 7 3 miles per hour over the 219 mile course, a big step up from the 56.10 mph recorded by the 1990 overall winners, Brian Collins and Jack Johnson in their Porsche pow-ered Chenowth Buggy. For 1991 the race was similar to last year's. and ran in a sort of criss-cross pattern that crowded the total mileage into a com-pact piece of Baja that allowed for easy access to the course at most points. Starting at the arches at the entrance to town. the course wandered through the dump, then headed north, across Zoo Road, and crossed Highway 5, 17 miles into the race. to pick up the notorious Beach Road, which gets rougher and less popular each year. At El Chinero the course crossed back over Highway 5, and picked up the route heading west that goes into Borrego, where it crossed Higlnvay 3, and then turned east, paralleling the highway, and headed down the wash, al-most to 3 Poles, where it turned south all the way to Zoo Road. The Zoo Road became the course for a couple of miles, but at Morelia Junction the rac-ers turned northward, heading down the old trail to Diablo Dry Lake, out across the lake, and up almost to Highway 3 in Matias Wash. At that point the course made a sharp turn, and headed south east, along the pole line road, and through the mini sum-mit, and back down to the Zoo _n he..dogged the winner all the way, finishing second overa :bY mereli/ 3 ' · -, 13 ondi ' It was a real truck show at the finish as Walker Evans flew his big Class 8 type Dodge to the Class 1/2 victory and third overall, taking the class lead after the halfway point and winning by about nine minutes. Road. It then repeated itself., except that at Morelia Junction the route bore left and gradually southward to Huatomote Wash, where the direction changed to eastward. Nearly at the end of the wash the trail turned north again. and followed an old race course back up to the southern edge of town, where it wandered a bit, through some soft terrain, and finally came back to the arches and the finish. There were 172 starters this year, down from 220 in 1990, continuing the pattern begun at the Parker 400 this year, of entries being lower than last year's. The weather was clear and warm, with cooling breezes on both Friday, (contingency day) and Saturday. while the Gulf Coast of Baja looked its very best, decked in springtime green, with blazing ocotillo blos-soms and a brilliant aquamarine gulf as a backdrop for all the race activity. The course was dry, most of the spring rainstorms having missed this area completely, and it looked as if dust could be a worry, should there be no breeze. The starting order for the classes was 1/2, 8, 10, 5, 1/2-1600, 6, 3, 7, 7 4X4, 4, 5-1600, Mini Mag, 9, and 11. There was a 10 hour time limit for all classes, and, to make it possible, the Class 11 entrants were directed to bypass the loop up to Matias Wash and back, thus bringing their total mileage down to 158. Plowing the silt a bit the Raceco of Frank Snook and Eric Arras was a close secon<j in Class 1/2 and fourth overall despite lacking power steering. Tom Schilling did a little crowd control and gardening in his Toyota Jimco and had a tight fight which he did win for the Class 10 title, and he also finished eighth overall. Pre-running, as always, was al-lowed on this course, and there were also many locations for pits and/or spectators, although the Zoo Road, a high speed graded road, was declared closed to Centinued en page 36 Jimmy Smith sailed his Chenowth Porsche to third in Class 1/2 and fifth In one of the closest finishes in desert racing Glenn Harris, with Brendan 0/A and had no real troubles, finishing just over two minutes behind Gaughan riding in the Chenowth Porsche, was fourth in Class 1/2, sixth second place. 0/A by a mere 9/10 of a second.

Lisa Dickerson and Scott Cameron had a slim early lead in Class 5, but few woes and Lisa crossed the finish line the class winner, ninth overall, the first lady car class winner in a very long time. John swift had shock problems all day long, maybe flying like this was the reason, but at the flag he was the winner and the only survivor in Class 6, driving the Ford Explorer. spectators for the duration of the race, in order to prevent a possible mix of race and non-race traffic. Motorcycles and ATVs start-ed their day about two hours be-fore the cars, and the first four wheel ·vehitle with a ' cage took the green flag at 8:-30 a.m. That was Danny Foddrill, in Jerry Finney's Porchse Chaparral, and hot and heavy behind him was a crowd of off road's finest, including,. right in back of him, Bill Church in his Class 1/2 Chevy truck, a relative of Rag-land's steed. Also pushing hard were both Mark McMillin and his dad, Corky, in their Porsche powered Chenowths, Danny Letner in a Porsche Chenowth, Eric Arras and Frank Snook in their Raceco, and Walker Evans in his Dodge truck. Foddrill held on to his dust free point position, while others experienced trouble early in the day. Johnson lost a piston about" three miles into the race, and Corky McMillin. trying to stay out of the dust, got confused by the multitude of roads on the beach area, and lost time finding his way back to the course. Bob Richey, in his Porsche Raceco, was overheating right away, and Troy Herbst broke a distributor cap o·n his Porsche Chenowth and ha!i to wait for a replace-ment part.

Ev-ans' truck stalled every time he stopped at a check, or braked really hard, and he had a broken header, but he was moving fast. Foddrill had to cool it a bit to get across the dry lake, but Letner had dropped back with a flat, and no one was close behind him. Still, his pit crew radioed that he should pick up the speed a bit, and he did as they said, and soon found him-self without a transmission. Now the front ·line battle belonged to Evans, Smith, Har-ris and Arras, who'd got back in when Snook wore out from driving with no power steering. Corky McMillin was also catch-ing up. Evans was the first in the class to cross the finish line, and was clearly the winner, but the next few came in so close tbgether that a casual obs~rver couldn't be sure who'd earned what finish position. Arras and Snook.~ who'd had a• flat about 12 miles from the finish, were declared 9/lO0ths of a second in front of Harris, who had Gaughan's son, Brendan, as navigator for this event. In fifth place it was Corky McMillin. and his co-driver. Brian Ewalt, just 34 seconds later. The Class 8 trucks had been second to start, and for much of the race the lead trucks were mixed in with the Unlimited Class traffic. A pair of favorites, Brian Stewart in his Dodge and Scott McMillin in his Ford, were out early. Stewart with motor failure and McMillin with a blown rear end. But Larry Rag-land ran with no serious trou-bles, and behind him was Rob MacCachren, in his Ford. also having no major troubles. Dave Shoppe, in another Ford, lost his rear shocks, and ran with-out their assistance for some distance, while Dave Westhem, also having shock troubles on his GMC, stopped for a while to let someone pull a bunch of cactus spines out of one of his hands. David Bryan, in a Ford, found himself adding water over and over again, but he kept mov-ing forward. Ragland broke a shock, and he stopped to have it taken off, but nothing else went wrong un-til, as he came into Villa del Sol he nearly ran out of gas. He kept twitching the steering wheel to make the truck rock from side to side, which sloshed fuel over the pickup, and kept the truck run-ning until he got to his fuel pit. Ragland and McCachren charged hard, but Frank Vessels,who was teamed with Shoppe for this race, lost time when a fan blade came off and holed their oil cooler. And Westhem's co-driver, Randy Salmont, had the misfortune· to hit a: buggy that was coming back onto the course, and the buggy's cage· lfoled the truck's radiator. It didn't do the buggy any good eitke : 1 . · Ragland sailed on unevent-fully, but Mac8achren lost a few minutes when he had to turn around to backtrack a bit to re-turn to the course, after wander-ing down a side trail along with a couple of Class 1/2 cars. Larry Ragla·nd took his first overall victory since '86, with just three minutes and 13 sec-onds on MacCachren, who was second overall,· his best fin-ish since he began driving the Class 8 truck. n third it was Shoppe and Vessels, finishing an hour and ·a half later, fol-lowed by Westhem and Salmont in fourth, and then Bryan. No other trucks made it in. The Class 10 cars started next. and Doug Fortin. Jr.,. was one of the first out of the race when the motor in his Che-nowth caught fire . .He put the fire out but there was enough damage that he was finished. Mike Withers was also out early, his Toyota Raceco suffering major battery problems, and Steve Myers, in another Toyota Raceco, lost a piston early in the day. But a close race was progress-ing along the trail, led by Tom DeNault, in the DeNault fam-ily's newMirage, Craig Watkins and Steve Sourapas, in a new Toyota Jimco, and Tom Schilling in another Toyota Jimco. Also in the running were Jim Kirk and Jim Pierce, in their Funco, Richard Ybanez and Jeff Quinn in a Raceco, Rick Romans and Barry Cavanaugh in another Raceco, and Don Weiser, in a Toyota Raceco were running well for the first half of the day, while Javier Cevallos and Vi-cente Serrano, a Tijualna team, in a Jimco, kept losing belts and pulleys. Through the double pit area it was a close three way race for the lead, as Schilling ac-complished what SCORE's of-ficials hadn't been able to do, and cleared out the spectators parked on the outside of the turn. He did it by the simple ex-pedient of missing the turn, and driving out amongst 'em. mak-ing them see the error of their ways. DeNault, who later said he'd "never lifted" on the beach road, had the lead, but lost power on Diablo Dry Lake, and thought he'd lost a cylinder. It later turned out to be a broken spark plug, but at the time it worried him, and he backed out of it a bit, trying to conserve the motor and get t.o the finish line. The Sourapas/Watkins car continued to do battle wi'th Schilling until it, too, had , a small problem, when the wiring loom, too close to something hot; bumed up. Soura,pas, then had the bestkind· of luck, when a spectator appeared, big tool box in hand, complete with·· wire ends and tape, to help hi'm-put it back together. He went' on, without his power steering, heading towards the finish. Meanwhile, Schilling, deter-mined to get there first, got a bit over anxious and plowed into a tree, filling the cb of the car with spiny branches, which he had to stop and toss out. And he did get the win, but only by a margin of four minutes and 49 seconds. DeNault was second, and Sourapas and Wat-kins finished third 17 minutes later. Kelly and Weiser, who'd apparently had major problems, were fifth, and the last Class 10 car to make it in. Class 5 was small for this race, with only eight entries. Trouble started early for some of them, including Rudy Cortez, who'd radioed for his pit crew by 10 a.m, and Michael Jakob-some wiring problems, but they came in to finish a good third in Class Hartmut and Wolfram Klawitter kept the winning Class 5 in sight all day, Mike McClune and Joe Valentine reported no problems save one flat on their Raceco as they charged around the desert to second place in Class 1-2-1600. 10 action. driving their older car they took second easily, just 4 1/2 minutes out.

At mile 87, the lead belonged to Scott Cameron, who was driving Lisa Dickerson's new car, while Lisa rode in the pas-senger seat. In second, only two and a half minutes back, it was Harmut Klawitter, still driving his old convertible. Then there was a gap of nearly an hour, and along came Doug Dawson and Mork Bowman, and 18 minutes later it was Greg Vaughan and Val Dodd in their sedan. Lazaro Cardenas and John Grimes were also still running, but further back yet. And Lyn Macaby was os far down that he was the last moving vehicle on the road for a while. The duel at the front con-tinued and neither car experi-enced any real trouble, though Dickerson's car popped out of gear now and then. She took over the wheel at the halfway point, and Cameron rode in the passenger seat, while Hartmut's brother, Wolfram, drove the sec-ond half of the race in their car. Dickerson brought the car in to the finish first for the win, just four and a half minutes in front of the Klawitters, and ninth overall. The Klawitters were 11th overall, and it was over two hours before the ned finisher, Jakobson and Jerhkovak, got the checkered flag Cardenas was then fourth, a half hour later, while Vaughan and odd man-aged fifth place, and no others came in.

But Willie Melancon, in a Mirage, was having no troubles, and didn't even have any dust, as he charged down the course, followed closely by Larry Martin in his NRW. Running third was Craig Deardorf in a Raceco, whose oil gauge wasn't working, so he kept stopping to check the oil just in case. At mile 87, Cameron Steele came along next, then John Marking in their Raceco, having a good day. Larry Smith and John Kennedy, in their MECO were running well also, and Burns had caught up with the group. Melancon continued to run trouble free, without even any flats to slow him down. His most exciting moment came Curt LeDuc and Russ Winkler won Class 3 in the Jeep Cherokee, having a trouble free day for a change, and LeDuc celebrated immediately his first desert victory by dancing on the Jeep's roof. when, just before the finish, he hit a booby teap jump built by the spectators, and flew a long way. But he suffered no damage in the landing, and came on in for his win. It was seven minutes before McClune and Valentine came in, reporting only one flat all day, discovered when they were making their driver change. Marking was there, only 21 seconds later, while Cameron Steele, who'd had to run on a flat for 10 miles, was fourth, a minute and 21 seconds later. Deardorf finished fifth, his ner-vous pit crew glad to see him get there, because they'd sent him out on his last section with dry c.v.s, not wanting to take the time to change them. Class 6 was the next batch to start. unusually far up in the staging. It proved to be a hard day for the group, with more failures than finishers. Right off the bat, John DeV,ito and Brett Wade were out,! their Blazer inoperable at th,e -first road crossing. And Evan Evans, who had brought his Blazer out for its first race, broke his steering by Check 1 and by the time he got it repaired, it was too late to go on, as the checkpoints were starting to close. Mike Lesle led the race, al-ready in front at Borrego, in his Jeep, and still in front at mile 87, with Steve and Bob Ball second in their GMC Jimmy. Running behind them was John Swift, in his Ford Explorer, who was having serious problems with his shocks. The remote res-ervoirs for the shocks, mounted near the rear window, blew up, and spewed hot oil all over the interior of the cab, onto Swift and his navigator, Dino Pugeda. For an instant they thought they had a fire. But when they calmed down and saw what it really was, they found they had a big mess, with oil all over the inside of the windshield and their visors. Besides the shock problems, they lost an alterna-tor, but they had no flats. Lesle was the first car into the pit area, but he passed his pit, and when he realized what he'd done, he put on his brakes, and then backed up toward the pit. But in the meantime. along came the Simon and Simon Class 7 4X4 Ford, into his dust, and, never even seeing him stopped on the course, plowed into the Jeep. Both trucks suf-fered extensive damage, and Lesle was finished for the day. None of the occupants of the trucks were seriously hurt. Swift struggled on, and made it to the finish line to get the win, saying he'd be surprised if any other cars in his class made it. And they didn't. Class 3 was made up of only four entries for this event, and the Nissan driveen by Mike Lund was out early with a blown motor. But the other three car-ried on. Curt LeDuc and Russell Winkler, in a Jeep Cherpkee, had a flawless day, never need-ing to stop for anything, and were even able to set a moderate pace for the latter part of the race, ensuring a safe arrival at the finish line. Behind them was Dan Smith, in his Ford Bronco, who'd actually been in front of them at Borrego. But tun Dan peeled a tire off a wheel by hitting a ditch too hard, and when he moved off course so he wouldn't be an obstacle, he buried the Bronco. It took him a long time to get moving again. LeDuc and Winkler took the win, with Smith second a half hour later. Dale White and Terry Wilde, in a Chevrolet Blazer, finished third, another half hour back. In Cass 7 it was a bad day for Manny Esquerra, who lost two cylinders at mile 30, when the air cleaner fell off and the vent tube on the carburetor broke and was sucked down into the engine. He ran on four cylinders Roger Mears had a little brake trouble with the Nissan, but nothing more, and he enjoyed the added horsepower legal this year in Class 7 so much that he won the class by a hefty 28 minutes. Class 7 4x4 had a 100% finish ratio, but despite steering woes and suspension fixes, Darren and Doug York went the fastest of the three starters and won the class in their Ford Ranger. for the rest of the day, finding it hard to get moving again af-ter each stop at a checkpoint. Scott Douglas, meanwhile, had some carburetor trouble with his Jeep Comanche (he still doesn't hay~ his new ~lass 7, truck) and ~lso had to change an air cleaner, and then he got stuck, "big time", according to Walker Evans. whose shop built the truck. But Roger Mears, in the Nissan, had to weld a brake caliper at Borrego, and then had no more problems. Roger is enjoying the added horsepower that's legal this year, and says it has "brought the fun back". He finished first to take the win. 28 minutes ahead of Esquerra, who was 20 minutes in front of Douglas. In Class 7 4X4 the lead was in the hands of Paul Simon, in the family Ranger, and he was having no problems. Behind him Jerry McDonald's Chevy started overheating right off the bat, and he started adding water. Then he broke an upper balljoint. which he says hasn't happened before, and at a slow pace because of the overheating, he got stuck. And while McDonald struggled, Darren York's Ford lost a steering box 20 miles into the race, and he got that fixed, only to break a left front coil spring at Villa del Sol. Your fixed that also, and hustled on down the road. Meanwhile, Simon got almost halfway around the course, but then, in dust in the pit area he slammed into Mike Lesle, who was stopped on the track. The impact tore off the front shocks, broke the steering box, ripped the right front end off the car, bent the left front end under the car, broke the frame, tore off the passenger side door, and slightly injured Simon's passen-ger, Ed Frisk. Simon was in the pit for a long time, while York went into the lead. But York's troubles weren't over, and he broke the right front coil, before he got over the difficult "mini sum-mit", and had to travel 15 miles with a collapsed front suspen-sion. After that his race was fair-ly uneventful, and he got back to the finish line in time to take the win. Simon, still without a door on the passenger side, and looking patched together, was second, an hour and 20 minutes later, followed in by McDonald, 17 minutes behind him. Centinued ,n p1ge 38 Paul and Dave Simon looked great here and were leading Class 7 4X4, John Marking got his Jimco stuck in a tree early in the race, but he came Dan Smith Led Class 3 in the early going, but he later got the Ford Bronco but later an accident by a pit area nearly destroyed the Ford Ranger, but back strong and finished third in Class 1-2-1600 by a mere 21 seconds. well stuck in the sand, but got moving again to take a second place finish. they got it running to take second in class.

Jerry Whelchel and Dan Reynolds scored the Class 7S win for Sage Council in the Toyota SR-5, running up front with the leaders all the way, and they reported no mechanical trouble at all en route. David Ashley got his first victory in the Class 4 Ford at San Felipe, and his only down time was for a new battery as he motored to victory, after getting stuck near the finish. Kelley led until about mile 132, where an upper control arm broke in two. His crew had to build a new one, and it took them three hours and 23 minutes to complete the job. Meanwhile, Ashley went on in relatively untroubled style, need-ing only a quick battery change, until about seven miles from the · finish line. Then he got stuck, and when he set about digging himself out, he kept his helmet on, until he found himself over-heated and ill. Class 7S had a good race at the front of the pack, with the lead trucks often in sight of one another, and the lead changing hands from time to time. In front on the road was the team of Terry Brown and Bill O'Brien, in their Ranger. who had approximately a four minute lead at Villa del Sol. But chasing hard behind them were Chuck Johnson and John John-son, in another Ranger. who were keeping a wary eye on their engine oil temperature, as well as finding that their gearing was wrong,' and they couldn't pull high gear. Spencer Low was run-ning hard, back in his old truck, after deciding tl}at his new Nissan wasn't real}y1 quitei race ready, and Willie Valdez was hard at it in his new Ranger, but was destined to be slowed down by three broken leaf springs. Jerry Whelchel, in a Toyota, was having a good day, his only problem being a cracked visor.

Malcolm Vinje and Mark Hansen, in a Toyota, found that their outdated small motor wouldn't keep up with the front runh:ers, although they kept moving along, with no big problems. The lead trucks moved on down the course, none of them troubled by flats, and all run-ning within about four min-utes of each other, according to Whelchel's scorekeepers. At the finish line it was Brown and O'Brien in first, but while they were still shaking hands, Whelchel came in, close enough to beat them on elapsed time and take the win by a margin of 53 seconds. Brown and O'Brien held on to second, and Johnson and Johnson were third, three minutes later. Low, who'd been without power steering for 150 miles, finished fourth, followed in by Valdez. The Class 4 trucks all had to struggle to make it in. Steve Kelley had the easly lead in his Chevy, with David Ashley sec-ond in his Ford F-150.

Darryl Cook and Tom Neth were nose to tail, looking, according to a passen-ger in another 5-1600, like "two Baja Bugs mating" as they went down the road. Rich Fersch found that he'd set the rear end of his car too stiff for whoop-de-doos, and there were miles and miles of them on the course. Danny Ledezma had some elec-trical problems, and some of his wiring burned, while Vince Alcouloumre and Mike Molina, who drive the Bug with the surf board on top, rolled over and dented the surf board. Neth hung grimly on to the back bumper of the Cook car Tom Neth won the basic two car race with the Cook brothers in Class 5-1600, and although he had steering trouble 15 miles out, Neth hung on to win the class by about two minutes.

Wayne, Darryl and Alan Cook almost had another 5-1600 win in their new Baja Bug, and they were first on the road all day and at the finish, Defending points champion Rich Fersch drove all the way and got tired, Arturo and Armando Tiznado had the Class 9 lead midway in the fray in but ended up second on time. but he held on in the rough going to finish well, third in Class 5-1600. their Jimco, but they ended up second by a scant two minutes at the flag. and whey Wayne took over for Darryl, he tried just as grimly, to shake him. He gained a little, but then came up against a Class 4 truck that was moving slower than he wanted to, but he wouldn't move over to let Wayne pass. Finally, the deter-mined 5-1600 driver had to hit the Class 4 truck, a thing not generally considered wise, but after three bumps, the behe-moth moved over. By then Neth had caught up again Cook came into the finish line first, but Neth, who'd hit a big rock and done something strange so that his steering had tightened up for the last 15 miles or so, came in soon enough behind him to beat him on time. In fact, Neth had just over two minutes. Then Cook had 18 minutes on Fersch, who was tired, in third, and in fourth it was the Ledez• mas; Mario and Danny, and Mario had driven the last four and ahalf miles with a broken rear trailing arm. In the Mini Mag class Frank Bristing saw a right front shock break, while he was at the front of the pack, and then watched the front end collapse and launch him into an endo de-scribed by a witness as a "spec-tacular pirouette". While he made repairs, the rest of the class went by. Larry Plank, an ex-quad racer, had a smooth day, and made it to the finish first, a rear that went flat at the finish being the extent of his problems. He was a full hour in front of Bristing, and his brother Steve, who made repairs in time to finish second, and last. Scott Steinberger had given it a good try, but lost his motor at mile 190. The Class 9 folks put forth an exceptional effort, and 14 out of the 19 entries made it back to the finish. They didn't have an easy time of it however, and for starters, Ray Miller broke a Larry Plank, an ex Quad racer, who obviously understands bike engines, won the Mini Mag class again, and his only reported trouble was a tire that went flat at the finish line. What timing! Rich Richardson and Doug Perrault had a clean day in their always fresh looking Jimco, were in the lead pack from the start and led the Class 9 17 car field across the finish line to another victory. spindle on his Chenowth, while Joel Stankavich and Mike Curri-er found that the suspension on their two race old Raceco wasn't quite right; they kept pitching to one side. Daniel Mora and Eric Fisher also had suspension troubles, and Roy Prince, in a Chenowth, broke a shock, and it took out his brakes, causing a big loss of time in the pit. Hector and Oscar Ledezma broke a rear shock after passing Borrego, and while up at the front of the pack, and had to stop to repair that. Meanwhile Miller, his spindle fixed, broke a torsion bar, and stopped to fix that. Arturo and Armando Tiznado, in a Jimco, ran a clean race, and had the load half way throu~h the day. But Rich Rich-ardson and Doug Perrault, in their immaculate Jimco, were also having a clean day, and were right up there with them. Also running well was Kevin Conlin, who'd dusted off a mid-engined Sandwinder that hadn't raced in several years, and even with no pre-run. was making good time down the course. Ledezma was running up near the front of the pack again, after some more time. Miller, after fixing his torsion bar broke a spring plate, and started in to repair that. . Richardson and Perrault real-ly poured on the gas, and got the checkered flag first, to take the win by just under two minutes. The Tiznado brothers were sec-ond, saying the course was much rougher than last: year, and Conlin finished third, just un-der two minutes behind them. In fourth it was Billy Kem and Pat Smith, in a lopsided ORBS, which had broken something in the rear suspension about 10 minutes before the finish. They were 17 minutes back, and fifth place.

was coming behind them at the time, and he was kind enough to help unstick the Class 11 car. The three lead cars had a generally uneventful day, and Garibay got to the finish line to take the win in five hours and 10 minutes, for an average 42.5 miles per hour, which is good and fast for a Class 11. In second it was Lacarra, Mayoral and Pimental, just 10 minutes later, followed in 23 minutes further back by Martinez, who used up two navigators, Rogeleo Rivera and Miguel Leon B., on his trip to the finish. Pierce and Bryant were reported stuck, about five miles from the finish, and with a faulty fuel pickup in their new fuel cell, and an oil line that sprouted a leak, were another hour back, a very late fifth place. The race was officially over before dark, and the long, balmy San Felipe evening stretched out before the racers. Gallons of beer, tons of racers and sup-port crews enjoyed the mellow atmosphere, and relished the fact that the racing was all over for the day. It had been a sprint, easy for some, but highly com-petitive for most, and for once there was time to enjoy. Even the competition Review Board had a relatively easy job the next required a lot of discus-sion. The Awards Presentation would even have been on tlme, but for the fact that Sunday was the first day of Daylight Saving Time, and someone forgot to "spring ahead". Still. it wasn't very late, and the setting was congenial, around the pool at the Las Misiones Hotel, which had been race headquarters. For the most part, a good time was had bv all. H.ut more Trail Notesfrompage7 Jeep SUVs with limited modifications and the General Tire Jeepspeed Cup presented by ATX Series Wheels is an open class for Jeep, Dodge, & Mopar SUVs/Trucks. After a highly competitive season that came down to the last race of the series, it was nice to get everyone together to share a meal, a few stories and acknowledge those who achieved top results. The crowd contained Jeepspeed newcomers Dustin Hoffman and Brandon Berge as well as seasoned veterans like Billy Bunch and Eric Heiden. A diverse group of competitors who all share the same desire, to race in a lower cost series that pits the race truck that they build themselves against each other. Jeepspeed is unique because it does not require you to purchase a "spec" vehicle to compete. Jeepspeed racers build their own vehicles to their own design as long as it conforms to the rules. Jeepspeed success depends on great driving in the dirt but also the innovative engineering and fabrication skills that have traditionally set desert racing apart from all others. These are all well-rounded racers who earned their trophies by using many different skills. Taking the General Tire, ATX Wheels, Jeepspeed Challenge championship and a check for $3000 was Mike Vernak. He wrapped up the title at the last race of the year, the Henderson 250. He was in a tight, back and forth battle with championship runner-up Eric Heiden and 3rd place finisher Todd Jackson until the very end. In an act of extraordinary sportsmanship, Todd Jackson actually loaned parts to Eric Heiden during the race that allowed Eric to take the runner-up spot. 2012 Champion Mike Vernak was very humble during his acceptance speech but the significance of beating tough competitors like Heiden and Jackson did not go unnoticed. The General Tire, ATX Wheels, Jeepspeed Cup championship was won by the Veteran, Billy Bunch. Bunch has been racing in Jeepspeed since the series began. First runner up belonged to Brandon Berge who also won the Coan Brothers, Jeepspeed Rookie of the Year award and the Howe Power Steering, Rookie of the Year award. The third place trophy and title went to Bob Mamer. There were also awards and prizes won by Ted Holt for long distance; making a 2,000 mile tow from Dacula, Georgia at Vegas to Reno, A cool $500 in the Sunoco Power Ball Draw to Tim Martin, A set of General Tires to Perry Coan and the John W. Skilton Memorial Award that honors Clive's father to Todd Jackson. The John W. Skilton Award, which goes annually to a Team or Person of outstanding performance, participation or contribution to Jeepspeed. Todd Jackson was selected in part due to his following contributions: Raising the bar in Jeepspeed race vehicle construction, which earned him a DirtSports, Masterpiece in Metal magazine feature; His determination to win and his tireless work in the development of the first WJ Grand Cherokee in the Jeepspeed series; His helping of other racers and competitors by providing parts and labor in their hour of need; Radiating such a positive energy and enthusiasm for the Jeepspeed Desert Racing Series.
