Trail Notes ... FINAL FLAG -Longtime racer, chaser and off-road enthusiast Bill Coughlin of Phoenix, AZ, passed away on November 22nd after a battle with cancer. Always a recreational jeeper, Bill began his racing career on a strait axle 3-wheeler in the Arizona Desert Racing Assn. He eventually turned to four wheels co-riding in the Plum Crazy Racing Jeep with Jim Huff driving. Bill then joined with Flamingo Racing and co-rode in the team's CJ-7 & Honcho. In the 90's he chased for Sasser Motorsports and was a BITD roving pit volunteer during the Nevada 2000. When not in the desert Bill enjoyed his cabin in Cholla Bay, Sonora, Mx. In 2003 Bill was the force behind the Flamingo Racing Team. obtaining their current Ford Ranger. "Without Bill's initial support we couldn't have achieved the success and had such wonderful experiences over the last nine years" stated Rich Severson. "Bill's friendship and belief in my racing skills is something that can never be replaced. Each race we competed in, Bill always reminded us to bring home a finisher's pin. Now in his Race of Life he has received his final checkered flag and the ultimate finisher's pin." Bill's wife Ellen preceded him in death but he is survived by hundreds of friends throughout the southwest and Mexico whose lives he touched. NORRA FORMALLY ANNOUNCES SECOND OFF-ROAD RALLY FOR 2013 -Unique Partnership With Mexican Sanctioning Body CODE Will Focus On Northern Baja And Historic Machinery Fur Three-Day Event -Armed with a now-proven track record of creating, promoting and hosting the latest form of desert off-road racing, the National Off-Road Racing Association (NORRA) today officially announced it will stage a second vintage-themed rally this year from September 25th to September 28th beginning and ending in Mexicali, Baja, Mexico. The yet-to-be named event will be held the same weekend as the more traditionally formatted 10th annual Mexicana Logistics 300 race of the CODE Off Road Series and will offer competitors a second calendar date to NORRA's General Tire Mexican 1000 rally which this year takes place from April 27-May 1. In a unique partnership, NORRA will work on this event with CODE, a well-established Mexican sanctioning body that attracts a very large and enthusiastic group of local racers. CODE has been instrumental in helping NORRA with the complex logistics needed to hold the annual NORRA General Tire Mexican 1000 adventure. While event details are yet to be completely finalized with Mexican officials, current plans call for contestants enjoying a complete NORRA Tech and Contingency day in Mexicali on Wednesday, Sept. 25th before heading south to the seaside village of San Felipe the next day. Day 2 of the rally will use various roads to reach the town of Ensenada on the Pacific Ocean. On Saturday, September 28th both the NORRA and CODE racers will merge in Ensenada for a combined race and rally back to Mexicali. NORRA would like to thank Mexicali and Ensenada for their continuous support as we finalize the details of the event. Beginning in 2010, NORRA has staged the highly popular General Tire NORRA Mexican 1000, a four-day stage rally down the entire exotic Baja peninsula that created a competitive environment for vintage off-road trucks, sedans, buggies and motorcycles for the first time in organized off-road racing' s 46-year history. This year an event record of more than 80 entrants have pre-entered with three months left before the green flag drops. NORRA officials expect to attract a field of 150 competitors for the 2013 rally - a 50% increase over 2012. Known affectionately as "The Happiest Race on Earth," the Mexican 1000 rally format now proven by NORRA consists of special stages (unlimited speed timed stages in the dirt) linked together by controlled speed liaison / transit sections (highway). Unlike the often harsh and deeply rutted race courses that are now a desert off-road racing staple, NORRA focuses on utilizing fun, fast and more forgiving roads that favor older and current limited-travel machinery, V ' as well as creating unique hospitality environments at the end of each day of competition. Certainly the rally's growing reputation as one of the world's most enjoyable and accessible motorsports adventures has sparked the enthusiastic response by veteran and rookie racers looking to enjoy the Mexican 1000 experience. So too has the notion of vintage off-road, rally and hot-rod style machinery finding a new, second life after being prepared to participate in the four-day adventure.The NORRA Mexican 1000 is supported by General Tire, American Racing Wheel, South Point Casino, Walker Evans Racing, Azunia Tequila, KC HiLites and Mastercrafr/lmpact Racing.For more information on the General Tire NORRA Mexican 1000, visit: Sc o RE D Es ER T s ER I Es DEB u Ts TOTAL ONLINE RACER REGISTRATION FOR 2 7TH MASTER CRAFT SAFETY TECATE SCORE SAN FELIPE 2 50 -Roger Norman era with SCORE starts with 2013 season opener, March 8-10 in Mexico; Live drawing for starting positions, by class, Feb. 12 on Dirt Live internet show.

"We have made the commitment to ourselves, our racers and our sponsors to improve on the foundation set so solidly in stone by Sal Fish for our sport and online racer registration is a key element in that progression," said Norman, a businessman turned racer turned race organizer. "This first major step of total online racer registration is a tremendous start for the new SCORE and I have to salute my wife Elise who has worked so diligently to integrate the elements of this new service to fit our needs for racer registration to make it something quite remarkable. Remarkably, Elise got it done in warp speed which seems to be how we are doing everything right now. The SCORE system for online racer registration is extremely user friendly and allows the racer to even go back into his or her personal file to edit information as needed." The new SCORE online racer registration system requires full payment of all entry fees based on four levels for cars and trucks, depending on the type of class a racer is attempting to enter and two for motorcycles and ATVs. Payment is accepted via credit card with payment by check allowed although with a check the entry is not official until the check is received and processed by SCORE. Roger Norman's Dirt Live one-hour weekly show is broadcast live on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. Pacific Time on the SCORE website. The show content is centered around his two desert racing series, the SCORE Desert Series and the High Desert Racing Association as well as the new bonus points program he has developed called the World Championship of Desert Racing. Broadcast studios are located at the Norman Motorsports race shop in San Diego. Norman, 49, a two-time SCORE Trophy Truck race winner, acquired ownership of the world's foremost desert racing organization Dec. 20, 2012 from Sal Fish, 73, the iconic godfather of desert racing who ran SCORE for 39 years. As a hoteVcasino owner in northern Nevada, business developer and a champion racer himself, Norman resurrected the High Desert Racing Association, (HDRA) in 2011. HDRA was highly regarded when it was active in the 1980s and early 1990s. While Elise Norman is overseeing SCORE racer registration, she is being assisted by Jessica Armstrong, a new member of the SCORE staff. For questions, racers may contact Mrs. Norman at 775.690.2306 while Armstrong is available at 760.608.3919. In its 40th year as the world's foremost desert racing organization in 2013, the three-race 2013 SCORE Desert Series, with all three massive special events held in Baja California, Mexico, will start with the 27th MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250, to be held March 8-10 in San Felipe. After San Felipe, the SCORE Desert Series will move to Ensenada for the 45th Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500, May 31-June 2. The season finale, also in Ensenada, will be the 46th Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, the granddaddy of all desert races, Nov. 14-17. The 2013 SCORE Desert Series will also be part of the quickly-evolving World Championship of Desert Racing, which will combine points accumulated in the three SCORE Baja races along with points earned from three of the four-race 2013 HDRA Series, all held in the United States. Both the SCORE and HDRA series will crown their own individual class and overall point champions as well with a bonus purse for those racers who qualify for the World Championship of Desert Racing points program to earn a desert racing World Champion title.

~[U)fflm~ PARKER 425 RACING ASSOCIATION Voss Takes Trick Truck And overall By Judy Smith Parker, AZ: The Best In The Desert's Parker 425 had a nice entry of 218 teams this year, for their well liked jaunt through the Arizona desert. Nothing much was new: the racing started on California Street, then turned left to go out into the desert, where many familiar areas greeted the racers. They crossed Shea Road, went on to Midway Pit at Mile 27 and 91, headed for Bouse, turned back and went to the Graham Well Pit, then on to Mile 67, where the course turned back toward Parker, stopped at Midway again, then headed out to Mineral Wash, made a right angle turn back toward the outbound trail, then at Mile 115 turned right again and headed towards town and the pits, but first ran the gamut of the infield "Python", and elongated "short course", with jumps, holes and tight turns, and many opportunities to go upside down. There was no speed limit in the Python, but by its very nature, it slowed the racers down. Then they reached the end of the long arc that was pit row, where there was a speed limit, always rigidly enforced, which must have felt like the longest, slowest piece of road the racers had ever driven, 'til they reached the end and were back out on the open course again. Each lap was about 143 miles long, and the fast classes did three laps, the slow-Photos: Trackside Photo er did only two. On their last lap At the Time Trials on Thurs-the racers dropped down by the day, Rob MacCachren, in the river, went past the timing trailer Steve Sourapas Ford Trick Truck, which recorded their finish, and had the fast time. Robby Gordon then on to a quick visit with Casey was about seven seconds behind Folks, the head honcho of the Best him in his Chevy Truck, and Ray in the Desert. If all was well, they Griffith was third, almost five headed out to the "Mesa", where . seconds further back, and the they endured a brief interview, first of the Class 1500 cars.

That visit with Casey, often better on sand tires, shaved a set of merely a word of congratulations rears and put paddles on them for and a handshake, can turn into a his qualifying run. It turned out heartbreaker, if the driver or team his ploy didn't work, as the truck has broken some rule.

MacCachren got off to a good It was a good race for Ross Savage, he took the gold medal in Class 10 in his Alumicraft, seen here heading for the checkers.

He seems to have better luck at Parker when he doesn't start first. Gordon went into the lead. It wasn't a runaway, but he stayed in front, chased hard by Jason Voss in his Ford and both the Weyhrich brothers, Mark and Gary, in their Fords. As they all chased the win, there was a lot of activity on the radio, signifying a busy day for the BITD rescue trucks. Car number 2097 was on a strap after one lap, and 1597 was looking for a tow, on lap two. There were_ regular announcements of rollovers in the "python", and racers who'd broken parts and needed spares brought to them. Car 1028 had a broken trailing arm at Mile 122 and needed a spare brought out, but then they didn't finish. Folks was heard to say that "#43 (Curt LeDuc and Billy Bunch) were do-ing open-heart surgery on their .• truck but will get back in the race." It didn't happen. A couple of cars took bad bounces and resulted in sore backs, so the injured parties were either taken by ambulance, or in at least one case, helicopter, Bryan Folks drove his Ford to a first place finish in the Class 1100 action, he's seen here just before liftoff on his way to the checkers. Gary Weyhrich was the second place finisher in the Class 1400 action, he's seen here pushing his Ford as fast as he could. Chase Borden drove his Custom to a second place finish in Class 6100, he's seen here nicely airborne heading towards the finish line.

No one suffered catastrophic injuries. The BITD radio channel was in nearly full time use, trying to keep racers on the course and spectators off of it. Not to men-tion finding available vehicles to either take parts out, or tow retired vehicles off the course and back to the pits. It's a huge job. The weather was more or less gray, with low thin clouds that let light through, but not a lot of sunshine. There was little wind, but there'd been some rain in the not too distant past and the rac-ers didn't complain too seriously about dust. Meanwhile, the course workers methodically reported Gordon in front, all the way, all three laps. He got to the finish, and then that all important chat with Casey Folks, and that wasn't a cheerful visit as it turned out. Folks informed Gor-don that he'd been hit with a 15 minute penalty for communicating with his helicopter. That bumped him right out of the win, and into third place. Gordon was not happy, but the BITD officials were firm. The penalty stood. Gordon did say he'd had a "new setup" on the truck, but wasn't inclined to stay around and chat. His time, including the penalty, was 7:14:14. The next batch of trucks com-ing in were so close that it was anyone"s guess who would earn the win. Ultimately it proved to be Jason Voss, who did all the driving in his Ford. He said it had been "almost a perfect day", but that he'd had a driveline vibration and had to keep it "under 106 miles per hour". He had no flat tires, but then about five miles before the finish he said he "lost the mo-tor", just to add to the tension. c,ntinu .. ,n page 1 O Max Hanberg finished second in the Class ½-1600action, Max is seen Perry Coan raced his Trophylite to a second place finish in the class, Nottoobadarace for Paul Berton, he flew his Custom to a second place here racing hard as he heads to the checkered ffag.

In the Class ½-1600 battle it was Ryan Mattox taking all the honors, he's seen here in his AJumicraft heading to the checkers. But he made it, with a total time of7:04:14. In second place it was Gary Wehyrich in his Ford. He'd been having a good day, but in the last five miles, as he passed a Trophy Lite the vehicle rolled in front of him, and while taking evasive ac-tion, he flattened a tire, which cost him about five minutes. His race was "good otherwise" he said, and he finished in 7:10:21. Fourth place went to Steve Stro-bel and Dale Ebberts in Strobel's Ford. Strobel drove laps one and three and Ebberts did the middle lap. They had one flat. Strobel said it was "an outstanding run - the truck was awesome." He liked get-ting out for a lap, and said it gave him "time for lunch." Their time was 7:16:04. In fifth place it was T.J. Flores in his new Chevrolet. Flores said he'd had a good first lap, then flat-tened a tire early on lap two and "pushed hard" after that. Then he had another flat, and ultimately finished in 7:48:30. Sixth place was earned by Craig Potts in a Chevy Geiser. Potts drove all the way, with Mike Er-ikson navigating. They had "no brakes and a flat tire", and their time was 7:57: 18.

Eighth place went to Gary Mag-ness and his daughter, Chelsea. Gary drove laps one and three and Chelsea did the middle lap, and navigated lap three. This was Chelsea's first time driving the Trick Truck and she said she can "definitely see why people like them." In the past she's driven the family ProTruck. Devon Housh navigated when Chelsea didn't. On the last lap their oil pump belt broke and blew the rest of the belts off the motor, losing them a bunch of time. Their finish time was 8:30: 16. In ninth it was Scott Whipple and Scott Gailey in their Ford Geiser. They had "overheating is-sues" which started early so they "basically just cruised it around." They said their low oil light had been on for the final two miles. Their time was 8:36:44. Tenth place went to the team of Ryan Hancock and Jordan Poole in a Ford, Danny Osborne and Gil Aguirre navigated. They said they'd had "a pretty good day", but the alternator belt "flew off". It was Hancock's first time in a Trick Truck; he's previously raced in the short course Lucas Oil series in a Randy Merritt took the gold medal in the Class 7200 battle, Randy is seen here at high speed on the course in his Ford. Pro 2 truck. He said, "Desert's bet-ter!" Their time was 8:40:01. In 11th it was Byron Ashley and Keith Redstrom in a Chevrolet. They said they'd had a flat and broke a torsion bar. Their time was 9:10:53. The 12th finisher was Jeff Geiser, Carl Beal and Kevin Allen in a Geiser. Geiser started, Beal drove lap two and Allen finished They said they'd lost an hour and a half with "fuel pump issues". The truck died on course several times. Their total time was 9: 15:52. Scott Schjovasa was back in 13th place, with a new truck, out for its first race. He said the transmission overheated, but "we'll get it right for the next race." His time was 9:17:10. In 14th it was more of the Beal family in a Geiser. Gramps Beal, age 74, did the first lap, Brian Sherry did the second lap and David Pedregon did the third lap. They'd been stuck on the first lap for about 25 minutes, and they also had a flat. Their time was 9:32:39. The Beals and their kin are new to Best In the Desert -but they've been off road racers for many years, often in Baja. Fifteenth went to Mike and Schuyler Jakobson in a Ford, with Dave Phillips, who navigated the whole distance. They have a new fast motor they said, and had four flats. Also, on the last lap, at about 118 miles per hour, the wind lifted the sheet metal off the roof of the truck .. Their time was 9:43:06. In sixteenth it was Ron Whit-ton, Brandon Dana, Lee Wood and Levi James in a Ford Geiser, in the time of 9:53:06. Seventeenth went to Greg Nun-ley and Tom Olivera in a Geiser. Nunley did laps one and ttwo, and Olivera finished. They had a wheel fall off on the last lap and had to replace the hub. It cost them an hour and 45 minutes, and their total timewas lel:02:27. In 18th place it was Adam Ray Lunn, Jared Pugh and Ryab Landiak, all from Texas, in a Ford Their time was 10: 10:52. Nineteenth went to a local truck: Tracy Rubio drove laps one and three and Jim Beaver did the middle lap, in a Ford. They had "some fuel pickup issues" and no flats, and finished in 10:53:50. Troy Vest debuted his new Jim-co Trick Truck, rolled it in the Time Trials, and finished 20th• Vest drove all the way. The bolts that hold the rack together sheared off. He got to a pit for repairs, and it took a long time. Their time was 11: 17: 16. He was the last Trick Truck to finish. In Class 1500 the first place fin-isher was Corey Keysar, in a Jimco Keysar. He did all the driving, and said it was "a perfect day - you dream about days like this." He "Kept chipping away at 'em." He'd started 47th, because he had rolled in Time Trials for earlier races, thus was too conservative this time and qualified poorly. He said a lot of cars in front of him at the start had broken, so he'd had clean air. His time was 7:18:47. In second it was Cody Park-house in a Jimco. His dad, Brian, was supposed to drive the third lap, but had broken his collar bone the week before on his dirt bike, and put himself out of action. This was the first time Cody raced at Parker. He said a rock took out a front brake line, and he'd had to pit for a fix, which cost 40 to 45 minutes, but he'd had no flats. His time was 7:26:15. In third it was Pat Dean and Bryan Freeman in a Bunderson. Dean did laps one and two, and Freeman did the third lap. They'd been up to second place, but ran out of fuel in the gauntlet on both laps one and two, and lost about ten minutes each time. Their total time was 7:29: 10. Derrick Sproule was fourth in his Racer. He said he'd lost his spares, one of them on the first lap and one on the third lap. He'd had a flat on lap two and replaced that spare, and then lost it. He also changed a driveshaft at the end of the second lap, in the main pits. His time was 7:30:33. In fifth it was Jon Walker in his Kreger, and he drove all the way, while Oscar Nuevo navigated all the way. They said they'd had "not a problem." Their time was 7:32:05. Sixth place was earned by Justin Lofton, in a Jimco. He said he'd blown a tire, which cost five min-utes. On the second lap he had a clean, fast run, but on the third lap he blew the power steering pump at Mile 29 and drove to Pit 2 with-out it, and then had it replaced. He said, "It's rough -I'm sore." His time was 7:36:26. The seventh place team was Greg Foster, who did laps one and two, and Steve Greinke who drove the last lap in their Racer. They had lost a power steering pump, and then finished on a very flat front tire, which had gone down about five miles before the finish. Their time was 7:51:47. In eighth it was Sam and Mike Baldi, Jake Johnson and Willie Clark who finished in 7:57:02. Ninth place went to John Herd-er, Justin Munyon and Brian Wil-son in a Jimco. Herder started, Wilson navigated, then Munyon navigated lap two with Herder, and Wilson drove the last lap with Munyon navigating. Herder slid into a rock on the second lap and ripped part of the hub off. That cost them about 30 to 45 minutes. Their time was 8:05:24. Tenth went to Levi Rockhill, in a car that he built. He drove the first two laps, and Randy Blume drove the third lap. They had "small fuel regulator issues" and no flat tires. They're into their sec-ond year on the same set of tires. Their time was 8:08:06. In eleventh it was Bruce and Scott Mills, Randy Miller and Shawn Darr, in a MCMullen. Their time was 8:32:04. The twelfth place team was Doug Silcock and Paul Keller in a · • Jimco. Silcock started and the car kept going into "limp" mode, and he also lost a fan belt and got stuck in sand. Keller finished, and their time was 8:33:05. Lucky 13th was C. J. Hutchins in a Kreger Chevy. He did all the driving, and said, "I'm bummed!" he'd been first on the road and lost his power steering pump. He drove 15 miles without it, and used up 20 minutes with repairs, then the second pump quit about 15 miles before the finish. His time was 8:36: 15. In 14th it was a team from Aus-tralia, in an Alumicraft with right hand steering. They said they'd rolled seven times in qualifying, and thus were 63.-d to start. Matt Hanson did the first lap and Andy Ryan did the last two, Justin An-derson and Marty Richardson were the navigators. They had come to pick up their new car, and decided to race it while they were Brian Day had a long day, he finished in second place in the 8100 class, Jeff Cepelik flew his Custom to a second place finish in the Open Eric Heiden drove his really good looking Jeep to the silver n;,edal in the Brian is seen here at speed on the course.

f . I here. Their time was 8:41:43. Fifteenth went to Chuck Hovey in his Jimco. He said that on the first lap his motor wouldn't go over 3000 RPMs, so he put in a new crank sensor. It cost an hour all together. Then, after that, "it ran perfectly." His time was 8:56:29. In 16th it was Ray Griffith in his Jimco, and he'd driven all the way. He reported that a wheel fell off, and they'd had to rebuild the hub. He also said that the shocks faded; and it was "one thing after another." Tony Sato navigated for him, and their time was 9:36:55. Seventeenth place went to Erick Jacobs, who drove laps one and two, and Shanon Powell, who drove the third l;ip in their Jimco.

Their time was 10:20:23. In eighteenth it was Shelby Reid and Daniel Folts in a Jef-feries. Folts did the first half and Reid finished, Casey Jefferies navi-gated. On the first lap at Mile 79.5 they ran out of gas, and had the BITD bring some out - they were 11 miles short of their pit. They figured they lost a lap and a half. Their total time was 11:57:20. They were the final finishers in the class. In the 6100 class, first place went to Jerry Whelchel and Mike Childress. Whelchel drove, Chil-dress navigated in the Camburg.

On the first lap the senior Diaz rolled the Ford truck six or seven times. This made his back hurt, so the junior Diaz got in. On the second lap he put the truck on its side. On lap three, before Pit 1, he rolled again. "It's been a long day." He said at the finish. "Before today, I'd never driven the truck -not even up and onto the trailer.

The sixth place car was the Seagrove of Blaine Conrad and Aaron Hawley. Conrad did. lap two and Hawley did one and three. Conrad threw a belt, and Hawley changed a starter. On the second lap the front spring collapsed and the front end was slamming and thus a king pin broke on lap three. They had to have one brought out to them. Said Hawley, "The car just fell apart today!" Their time was 11: 14:23. In seventh it was Kelley De-loach and Robert Campbell. They said they'd rolled and were "upside down for a half-hour", on lap 3. When they got back on their wheels they had to add oil.

They duct taped the steering wheel together. They said that Kenny Thatcher built the chassis. Their time was 12:23:03 and they were the last in the class to finish.

They got one mile into the race, with Crisp driving and Chris Parker navigating, and discovered that the foam in the fuel cell was coming apart, and fuel lines were clogged. So they went to their pit and took the fuel pump apart and cleaned it, then went on and flipped the car, nose/ tail, twice. A double endo, and landed on their tires and went on. But they'd had to stop and reattach their hood. Then about a tenth of a mile further on the fuel pump was clogged again, and they had to stop and clear it.

In sixth it was Todd Jackson, with Mike Slater navigating. They lost their driveshaft, blew the power steering pump and the Jeep caught fire for a few moments, but their extinguisher put it out, and they repaired things and went on Rich Severson took top honors in Class 7100 at Parker, he's seen here at high speed hustling towards the sometimes elusive checkers.

For the final 25 miles of the race they had a top speed of 17 miles per hour, and were running on only two or three cylinders. But, they had no flat tires. Their time was 9:01:37. Tenth went to Bill Frey and Clint Malbert, who each drove a lap. They said a "wheel fell off, the brakes broke, a tree knocked off the radio antenna, but, no flats." Their time was 10:49:44.

Their only misadventure was that another race vehicle took out their side view mirror. Their time was 14: 10:02. The last finisher in the class, in 14th place, was the team of Travis Ronne and Denny Martin, who each drove one lap, and navigated one lap. They had fuel issues and a driveline problem. Their "fuel issues" were simple to solve - they just hiked three miles each way to get more fuel after they ran out. Their time was 15:33:36, and they crossed the finish line at 12:40 a.m. For the most part it was an uncomplicated event. It started on time, the weather stayed mild, the course didn't get flooded, or overrun by spectators and their kids. No hang gliders threatened to land in the infield, and fire engines weren't required. The rain held off until about 4:30 Sunday morning, causing no one any problem at all.

l.l\.lc:!C:: MONTE CARLO RALLY Loeb/Elena/Citroen Take The Gold By Martin Holmes Photos: Murice Selden Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena drove their Citroen DS3 to the gold medal at Monte Carlo, here at high speed on the course. "Totally mad, truly awful. Never seen conditions like it," exclaimed the reigning, but now semi-retired, world champion driv-er Sebastien Loeb after scoring the most spectacular of his seven wins at Rallye Automobile Monte-Car-lo. In unusually but splendidly spectacular winter conditions which then got dramatically more tricky, he led almost all the way on what he plans to be his final time driving at the event. Behind him, second place went to Sebastien Ogier on the debut event for the Volkswagen Polo R WRC team while Citroen DS3 World Rally Cars took four of the top five posi-tions. Ogier started the Volkswa-gen WRC's rally career with a first stage victory, before Loeb moved ahead and consolidated his lead by the end of Day 1. Sixth place went to the new lead M-Sport driver Mads Ostberg on his first ever Monte Carlo Rally. Welcome to a whole new generation of world champion-ship rallying! Rallye Automobile Monte-Carlo opens the door to another decade of the WRC, exactly 40 years after the cham-pionship began in January 1973, and 60 years since the first ever international championship rally, in January 1953. Once again this WRC event had an unusual four-day (Wednesday to Saturday) for-mat. The championship this year has a different feel. Gone were the official Ford entries and there was no official Manufacturer Mini team but new is the official Volk-swagen WRC team. There was a Monte Carlo farewell to Sebastien Loeb as he enters semi-retirement career phase but, Loeb apart, not a single reigning or former world rally champion was on the entry list! Champions may be almost absent but there were no fewer than four previous Monte winners at the start. Besides Sebastien Loeb, Mikko Hirvonen and Se-bastien Ogier, 'Biche' the winning lady cod river on the 197 3 Monte Carlo Rally (the inaugural round of the newly established World Rally Championship) was compet-ing. The Start and central service park were once again located in Valence followed by three days of stages in Ardeche, Vercors and Haute Provence. The event then ran the traditional Alpes Mari-times stages (the "Turini loop") on the final evening. The route was largely familiar except for the Sisteron-Thoard stage run late on Friday afternoon. This stage has a remarkable con-tour and equally remarkable his-tory. After a long gradual passage up a valley into the hills the course climbs sharply into the Font Belle forest which is frequently snowy. Last used twice in 2002, the first passage was cancelled through pressure of spectators, the sec-ond time saw the young Loeb a quarter minute faster than the opposition. On many years the early evening drop in temperature caused havoc with unexpected ice, and with two-wheel-drive cars struggling to climb up to the forest. In 1994 Michelin pro-• d · l'''"C " ~uce a spec1a atamaran double tread tyre especially for this stage. Sisteron legends are endless but not so many current drivers know the stage. Sebastien Ogier, from nearby Gap, has only ever been there as a spectator. As in recent years Monte Carlo once again did not run Rally2 (Super-Rally) systems for drivers who did not complete all the route. The event entry list named 82 crews including 13 World Rally Cars with ten crews eligible for FIA Manufacturer championship points under specific adjustments to the rules to suit the circum-stances. The arrival of the VW team means there were now four different makes of World Rally Car on the event, the greatest number since the new formula started in 2011. World champion-ship debut ap1;earances apart from Ogier and Jari-Matti Latvala in their VW included Juho Hannin-en and Thierry Neuville in Ford Fiesta WRC, Michal Kosciuszko in a Mini and Esapekka Lappi in a works Skoda while Dani Sordo Mikko Hirvonen and Jarmo Lehtinen were the fourth place finishers in the Monte Carlo rally, seen here passing many spectators. returned to the Citroen team af-ter a two year break. There were no RRC cars on the event and top level driver absentees included the Solberg brothers, only the second WRC event where neither have been present for 12 years. This was the first event for two of the three new style WRC sup-port championships, with eight crews eligible for four-wheel-drive WRC2 points and three for the two-wheel-drive WRC3 series. The FIA explained that the Teams Cups for WRC2 and WRC3 cars did not depend on individual reg-istration. If a crew who finished was entered in the name of a team not the driver, that automatically gave them points for the Teams series as well as the Drivers' series. The season started once again with two events (Monte-Carlo and Sweden) where special tyre rules apply. The main tyre rule change for 2013 is that only four, rather than five, new tyres can be fitted on championship cars at each service point, in order to reduce the number of tyres used during events. This increased the need for "mixing and matching" differ-ent specifications of tyres around the cars, and originally written event rules forbidding mixing studded and non studded tyres on cars were cancelled before the event. Superior tactics were once again expected to provide the win-ner at Monte. Dramas in the days before the event were at high pitch. Martin Prokop's team were finally sup-plied with a replacement engine just days before the start, there having been no success in discov-ering what the problem was that caused them so much trouble with their usual engine last year. The FIA delay in registration was finally resolved in a way which ensured that selected drivers of all four makes of World Rally Car had the chance to score Manufac-turers' points, but VW were not happy with the way they were nev-er consulted. DMack tyres had an increasing presence, for the first time being represented on a regis-tered WRC team (Lotos Mini) as well as by the non championship WRC driver Prokop. In the final days of pre-rally testing Mikko Hirvonen had a heavy crash in wet snow conditions, rolled off the road down into trees, his second big accident in a year after the ear-lier gravel test accident in Tuscany. This year the event specified two basic types of tyre, each with the same tread patterns. The winter tyres were prepared by both Michelin and DMack, capable of being run with or without studs, the clear weather tyres in two dif-ferent compounds, suitable for soft or super-soft conditions. This series of options however did not make the teams ready for the mo-ment when the weather at Valence changed at 0600 on Tuesday for the 3.6km of Shakedown. Held just outside the low level Valence, which itself had a sudden snow-fall, conditions on the Shakedown stage, and indeed on all the roads, with snow on top of ice and in and around Valence, were treach-erous. Times were crazy, even the ·' top drivers went off the road. On the first run the times were often one minute faster than an hour or two later. In the end Neuville ( was quickest ahead of Loeb, Novikov, Hirvonen and Lat-vala, all four WRC makes in the top five. Lappi was fastest WRC2 but 2.9 seconds slower than racing driver Tomas Kostka in another Skoda. Best Production Car Cup driver was Ricardo Trivino and best WRC3 driver was Sebastien Chardonnet, but 2.1 seconds slower than another Citroen R3T driven by Mathieu Maurage. In the end 72 cars took the start, the most important non starter be-ing Quentin Gilbert in a Citroen R3T, which meant the number of drivers in the WRC3 category went down from three - to two. Day 1 The snow in Valence had melt-ed during the day on Tuesday and when the temperatures overnight descended well below zero the Sepp Wiegand and Frank Christian finished eighth overall in their Skoda Dani Sordo and Carlos Del Barrio drove their Citroen DS3 to a bronze Michal Kosciuszko and Maciej Szczepaniak drove their John Cooper Fabia, seen here at high speed in the white stuff. medal finish at Monte Carlo, seen here on the slick mountain road.

Only tensive amount of mud on the the next day did we discover that Dusty Times Loeb had suddenly increased his lead on the stage on the day from 26.6s to lm20.3s, the defining point of his race to victory. It was hoped things would work out better on Day 2 when the rally headed back to northern end of the Ardeche region. As for the weather forecast, many sug-gested that there would be snow overnight. Day 2 Overnight the knock-on from the results shambles continued. Even the establishd sources, such as the FIA official news service and the semi-official, got it wrong. First thing on Thurs-day morning the rally radio ser-vice were uaware of the correct positions. The organisers then announced that the automatic timing system had not worked properly on the Citroens and that Loeb's times had been confused with Hirvonen's on stage 3, only discovered later that evening. The Stewards ordered Citroen to move the location of the tell-tale sensors on Loeb's and Sordo's cars because they were interferring with the organisers OPS systems. Loeb's lead of lm15.8s suddenly increased lm20.3s, and Thierry Neuville was found to have been lying fifth, not third, when he retired! Meanwhile as the rally re-started from Valence, the weather demanded attention. Strong arctic winds swept through the service park. A lot of the ice had gone but the cold was now pen-etrating, but the air was clearer. The grey gloom of Wednesday had disappeared! The first stage of the loop was a long hillclimb of nearly 20km, with full snow in the lat-ter stretches, but in the earlier part the ice was glazing more and more with every passing car. Jari-Matti Latvala was continuing to take time to get happy with the Polo and impacted a snow pole and punctured, letting Evgeniy Novikov, who made a second fastest time, up to fifth. Novikov fitted all new winter tyres while the other Ford drivers fitted a mixture of new and previously used winters. Mikko Hirvonen was still unhappy, dropping some 20 seconds to the leaders, "I don't know why I am slow all the time: The car handles nicely but I am not confident." Quickest up the stage was Ogier. Second stage was St Bonnet-le-Froid which was in classic winter conditions, full snow -with fresh snow blowing off the sides of the road on to the track. Minus 11 air temperature, minus 20 windchill. Novikov was again quickest, 20 seconds faster than Loeb who was "always on the limit". Ogier spun. Back on form was Mads Ostberg and Latvala who was gradually learning how to drive the Polo on the snow. Bryan Bouffier spun while Martin Prokop had a big moment and went into a snow bank. Michal Koscisuzko finished the stage with damaged rear suspension. Fords took the top three places. Much of the road on the third stage was asphalt with a lot of patchy ice and Novikov gave credit for his speed to his gravel note crew which comprised Francois Delecour with Denis Giraudet, "the best in the business," he said. Anyway this was enough to put Novikov up to fourth, ahead of Hirvonen who again said he had no confidence. Loeb went a little more easy. Ogier made second best time, February 2013 saying it was the trickiest stage of the rally so far. Ostberg was again making good times "Every little thing makes a difference." Latvala however was not so happy, "Fast changing conditions are still tricky for me in this car ... " The rally by now was settling down. The temperature in the high Ardeche hills was still bitter. Loeb held his ground, winning the first and third stages of the sec-ond loop, while Juho Hanninen made best time on the second run through Burzet. Loeb said that ruts were beginning to appear on the stretches which were earlier fully snow covered which made driving first car on the road tricky, while Ogier was safely in second place. Ostberg continued to learn the tricks of the Monte Carlo Rally, "sometimes if you push too hard you just go slower." The Burzet re-run was still substan-tially snow covered but recently falling snow on top of compacted snow made it very slippery but at least the grip here was constant. The air temperature was round -11 and the ground temperature was around -20. On stage 10, the final one of the day, drivers reported that the surface was largely dry but with ice -and an increasing amount of mud from corner-cut-ting. Kosciuszko spun. Eleventh placed Julien Maurin, who was having traction trouble at the rear of his Fiesta, went off the road. In WRC2 the positions stayed constant, all six drivers continued until Lorenzo Bertelli went off the road. In WRC3 Poutot spun backwards into a tree, continued but then two stages later went off the road permanently, leaving Sebastien Chardonnet as the only points scorer left in the category. Day 3 The rally headed eastwards to St Jean-en-Royans, returned for service before then head-ing south-east via two stages, St Nazaire-le-Desert and then the classic at Sisteron, before driv-ing to Monte Carlo. Conditions were beautiful in the extreme. Cold, (-13 degrees was reported), clear with fresh snow on the trees and after the first low level stretches on the road as well. Se-bastien Loeb arrived at the end of Continued on page 16 Page 15

Mads Ostberg and Jonas Andersson finished sixth overall in the Monte Carlo rally, seen here power sliding their Ford Fiesta RS going out of town. Royans ecstatic, "Quite the nicest stage so far!" Despite going care-fully on the slippery downhill stretches at the end, Loeb again made fa stest time. Although living locally at Gap, Ogier was driving these stages for the first time, but was second fastest. Dani Sordo had a spin which let Evgeniy Novikov edge closer to third place. Both Bryan Bouffier and Martin Prokop slid off the road and needed spectator-power to get them going again. Stage 12 was tricky, because drivers need-ed to decide what selection of six tyres would suit their purpose for both St Nazaire, which was largely clear, then the Sisteron stage and the famous icy forest. Loeb said St Nazaire was tricky, "It was always difficult to find grip, sometimes it was better on one side of the road, other times on the other side. Despite the mix-ture St Nazaire was a rare stage that Hirvonen liked. Novikov passed Sordo into third place, unsure whether this was because of tyre choices. But the results of Sisteron would give the answer. Sisteron was majestic with its dry asphalt and then the icy forest. Loeb chose tyres which were best for the clear asphalt and this decision worked. He won stage by eight seconds -half of the margin by which he won the stage back in 2002. Latvala was second fastest, "Let's have some more stages like that", he exclaimed. "I have finally got the measure of driving the Polo. He climbed up to fifth place overtaking Hirvonen , who had overheating brakes on the final downhill parts of the stage. Ogi-er opted for a cross-over mixture of tyres and was third fastest. Mads Ostberg was also getting more comfortable. "I am learn-ing how much I can push winter tyres on dry asphalt, and it paid off specially on St Nazaire," where he made his only scratch time of the rally. His choice of winter tyres was wrong for Sisteron, but at least he was hap-pier to be faster than Hanninen! Loeb might have won the stage but Novikov was establishing himself as the hero of the event. Still only 22 years old, and only his second Monte Carlo Rally, how could he be so fast? "I have been rallying on snow and ice back home in Russia since I was 16 years old ... !" There was no element of com-petition in the WRC2 category. Sepp Wiegand was moving further and further in front, but on the road section to the St Nazaire stage he had a panic when a bat-tery lead disconnected. He was able to reconnect that and sur-vived the day. Armin Kremer led Ricardo Trivino in the Production Cup classification. Sebastien Chardonnet was continuing as the only driver left in WRC3. He was fortunate when he went off the road, in virtual identical fashion to what his rival Poutot had done, and came within a whis-ker of hitting a tree in the same 81st Ralye Au1omobile Monlb-Calo (F/MC) Valenc:e-M>naco 16/19.01.2013 WCR / WRC2 (◄WO) I WRC3 (2WO) round 1 WCR poinls 1 (1) Sebastien LOEB/Daniel Elena F/MC Citroen DS3 (M) WRC 1/BN◄O◄MV (F) Sh.18m.57.2s.

Jari-Matti Latvala and Miikka Anttila were out on the 13th stage in an accident, they are seen here in their Volkswagen Polo at speed. Martin Prokop and Michal Emstdrove their Ford Fiesta RS to the lucky seventh Esapekka Lappi and Janne Fenn were out of the rally early with suspension finishing position at Monte, seen here whizzing by a group of spectators. problems, they're seen here in their Skoda Fabia at high speed. at the end of the first stage told everything Loeb: "Really shit, undriveable, no grip at all. You could go off the road at 30kph." Ogier twice· slid off the road into the barriers. Hirvonen, "the most difficult stage of my life." Ostberg, "there were places where I would not even be able to walk. I had to turn off the ALS and then switch completely to driving in road mode." Bryan Bouffier stayed in the middle of the road in his Citroen DS3 WRC and made best time, averaging only 59kph and nearly eight minutes slower than the course record! Kosciuszko had to do the stage on old tyres, "I could not turn, had no traction, very scary." Then came the drivers missing from the roll call. Novikov impacted the rear left wheel one kilometre into the stage. He struggled on but then abandoned. Latvala under-steered straight into a wall at ex-actly the same place. It wrecked the rear and then the front of his car. It was at exactly the same place as Novikov suffered his damage. Hanninen skidded into a wall five kilometres after the end of the stage and retired. The loop had only just begun! The slowness over the stage severly limited the available time for drivers to change round their tyres for St Roch (Lantosque-Luceram), where conditions were better but by now drivers had firmly entered self protection mode. Fights for position were secondary. Sordo gained his first scratch stage time and then the drivers went back to Turini again where conditions were less severe. Loeb: "We were driving slower, careful, staying in the cl.earer lines in the road, but the slightly exit for the lines meant you lost control." He made best time. Ostberg lost over five minutes, and one place to Bouffier, when he impacted a rear wheel and damaged the brakes as well. As the cars passed, it started to snow on the summit once again, the traffic congestion increased and the organisers decided to aban-don the final two stages. Wiegand held his lead in WRC2, despite a spin on St Roch in the freshly falling snow which delighted the spectators. He fin-ished eighth overall and won the category by over eight minutes from the Group N Subaru Armin Kremer who finished 11th. Kre-mer headed the new sub-division Production Car Cup, ahead of Trivino the only finishers in this category.

For more information please visit S NORE's FouR KEY LEADERS AND A NEW SPONSOR COMBINE FoR BIG EXPECTATIONS FoR A SPARKLING 2013 RACING SEASON -The Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusiasts head into a promising year in 2013 capitalizing on a pair of key components. First, four SNORE members who spearheaded the club's vibrant success in 2012 will return for the 2013 season. And second, the club has capitalized on the fact the series has a new sponsor, that being Terrible Herbst Motor Sports Garage which will headline the year. With the Terrible Herbst sponsorship comes an added $10,000 to the SNORE points fund, while also giving the overall champion nearly $20,000 based on entries from 2012. The return of the four leaders coupled with the addition of Terrible Herbst Motor Sports Garage undoubtedly adds even more stability and promise for the SNORE, which was founded in 1969. Key players returning to the SNORE governing body are President Brittany Burgos, Vice President John Pellissier; Treasurer Debbie Burgos and Race Director Kenny Freeman. With each return of member leadership came an obvious level of dedication, as SNORE continues a climb that spiraled into prominence en route to a sparkling 2012 season. In true family form, the four leaders joined forces to rally the club into the right direction. With each member, a commitment had to be made for what will be a long and exciting season. In Freeman's case, the decision to return as race director was bitter sweet, since 2013 will mark the second straight year in which his own racing will suffer so that he can spend time helping direct SNORE. "I definitely miss not being able to get into the car as much as I used to," explained Freeman. "Off-road racing definitely gets in your blood, especially since I've been racing for about 40 years." However, Freeman isn't getting out of competition all together. "I'm going to pick and choose the events I run in during 2013," Freeman explained. "I'll get into the 1600 car at events run by other sanctioning bodies when February 2013 time permits. And besides, we still have several Freemans competing in SNORE events, and that's particularly satisfying to me, too. I have been fortunate to see my kids race and now I want to see my grand kids race, too." Pellissier, who doubled as one of SNORE's premier Champ Car drivers last year before finishing fourth overall in the standings, concurred with Freeman. "We laid the ground work last year," explained the 45 year-old Pellissier, a native Southern Nevadan who makes his living as an air conditioning repairman at the World Market Center in Las Vegas. "We are headed in a very positive direction and I want to see it through. We don't have any egos in this group and we all enjoy seeing what has transpired in the last year. We all have different strengths and that makes us stronger as a team." Debbie Burgos, the mother of the SNORE president, comes from a family dedicated to the sport of off-road racing. A goal-oriented member of the sport who works in the legal profession, she is also vitally important considering her position as treasurer of the group. "I made the decision to remain as treasurer and volunteer coordinator to support my daughter as SNORE president and Race Director Kenny Freeman's heroic efforts to keep SNORE alive and thriving in the future. SNORE has done an amazing job considering all of the adversities it has faced; and it is still considered to be one of the premier off-road racing organizations in the country. "Our family loves the off road sport, and more importantly, the people involved in the sport. So in order to see our sport continue, we have to step up and make sacrifices, not only with our time but also with our hearts." While the sport of off-road racing requires extreme dedication, the rewards are well worth it, Burgos added. "There are days when it gets extremely frustrating and I would like to just quit, but as soon as the checkered flag drops and the dust settles, the satisfaction from what has just accomplished by our little group of volunteers makes it all worth it." The younger Burgos took over the presidency after a tumultuous 2011 season; promising to help bring unity and stability along with direction to SNORE. "I knew it would be a huge task, but I love SNORE," said the 2006 graduate of Centennial High School in Las Vegas. "We accomplished a lot in 2012, but only because we banded together to perform as a very strong team. "Now, we're going to reach even higher levels in 2013." SNORE opens the 20J3 season with the Battle at Primm Feb. 22-24 south of Las Vegas.

Sixth lap, Bryan Huth was still leading the pack,Joey Bitto was once again running in the second sp6t and David Sperry had dropped back into the third position. There were no position chang-es in the UTV Class for the rest of their laps so when the checkers flew in was Bryan Huth taking a really nice win, Joey Bitto came across the finish line for a silver medal finish and David Sperry took third place honors in the class. Class 1450 was next, there were two entrants, Kyle Scott and Han-son (with no first name). Hanson led the first lap while Kyle Scott took care of second place . There were no position change for the entire race, Kyle Scott dis-appeared from the scoring charts on the eighth lap, leaving the gold medal to no first name Hanson. Class 10 suffered from a lack of entries, there was only one, Brian Gilbert and he raced around the course for his required laps and went home with a gold medal around his neck. Class 3000 was also short on entries, there was only one, Mike Van Newkirk. :Mike put in his required laps and he-was awarded the win-in class. · Barry Karakas was the only en-try in t\:le Class 7 contest, he ran his required laps with easer and was awarded the class win, going home with top honors. Mike Donahue was the only en-trant in Class ½-1600, he only was able to complete seven laps but he was still the class winner, having gone farther than anyone else. And so it ended, a very poor showing from the racers. Let's hope that in 2013 they will come out in large numbers for this race at a most wonderful venue. Dusty. Times

GREAT. MOJAVE 250 • CIRCA 1989 Herbst, Herbst & Herbst Take Gold By Jean Calvin Photos: Trackside Photo It was busy at the start/finish line when the first cars finished a lap before all had started. Here Danny Gau gives the green to Matt McBride for his second lap in Class 2, as Evan Evans waits to start in Class 2. - Photo by Judy Smith The annual trek to the tiny des-ert community of Lucerne Valley, CA has become almost a "rite of spring" for desert racers. In the past the event has been held in April, but this year it was moved back and held on March 11, a bit early to see the wild flowers blooming on the desert. But that was all that was missing from the 1989 edition of the SCORE Great Mojave 250. The car entry was up by five ve-hicles this round, again like Parker with a number of no shows, but a bigger entry was expected, since last year the event, due to scheduling woes, took place on Easter week-end. For inexplicable reasons the motorcycle entry was well down, one third less than last year with only 43 .starters in the numerous classes for two and four wheel vehi-cles, despite the fact that once again SCORE made the monumental effort to provide these classes with their own course, which does pro-duce some logistical problems for the race, with two courses, bikes and cars, running at the same time and sharing a common start/finish line. Beautiful Spring weather greet-ed the racers as they did their pre-race chores on Friday. Like Parker, SCORE strings the activity all over town with registration at one end of the basically one main street village, the contingency row in another area, tech inspection in still another location, and impound in a dusty field, which turned out to be too small for the car entry. The bikes were not subject to impound. The contingency donors turned out in droves to line both sides of a new ar~a which was far better than previous spots in Lucerne Valley. However they ended up talking to each other half of the time which stretched from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Apparently many racers chose to go directly to the tech inspection area, rather than spend an extra couple of hours talking to contin-gency donors. This development was undoubtedly due to the fact that the start/finish area was some 30 miles from town, and over ten miles of the trip was on a dusty, rocky, narrow desert trail posted at 20 mph and heavily patrolled by various law enforcement folks from county mounties to the BLM rangers. Also, unlike many events which put the tech inspection at the end of contingency row forcing competitors to go through the line, Frank Vessels and Jon Nelson led three of the four laps handily in Class 8, thundered across the desert in the Chevrolet and won the class by 14 minutes and took a close second overall. Bob Gordon had a little shock trouble with his Chenowth, but he picked up time on the last lap to finish second in Class 2 and fourth overall. neither Parker or Lucerne have this feature. Staging for the cars began at 5:45 a.m. Saturday morning at the impound area. Of course those late starting classes for whom there was no room at the impound, had to bring their race cars to this stag-ing from wherever they spent the night, and then participate in the parade down the wash that dissects the town out across the desert to the starting line, and many said the parade route held rougher terrain than the race course. Needless to say, at that hour of the mornfng there were few parade watchers on hand. While the motorcycle classes began racing at 6:00 a.m., the first cars were due to start racing at 7:a.m. With the heavy car entry, and a less than 60 mile route for the cars, another problem emerged at John Kelly brought his Raceco from Tucson to compete, and he ran a quick pace, had no real trouble, and came home a good second in Class 1. Rrst lap leader Steve McEachem had a great day·in the new Dodge, one flat for trouble and finished a strong second in the Class 8 action.

Scott and Kent Pfeiffer did the number on the Class 10 regulars, their Chenowth in contention all the way. They took the lead on the final lap and won the class by over 18minutes Steve Barlow had his problems on the second lap but he came back fast to move into second in Class 10 at the checkered flag. Twenty-five starters in Class 2 led the herd of cars through the pit area and off into the race course. Brian Collins started first in his Chenowth/Porsche and he stayed there through the first lap, and he figured the dust free position was good for a minute or more on time. Collins turned the only race lap under an hour, doing the route in 57:40, despite slowing for the congestion. Next on time were Jim and Lisa Greenway at 1:02:01 in a Raceco/ Toyota, followed in 35 seconds by Ed and Tim Herbst, Chenowth, and they had Matt McBride/ Steve Sourapas, Raceco,a mere five more seconds behind them, with Bob Richey/Harold Hicks just ten more seconds further down in a Raceco/ Porsche. Follow-ing under a three minute blanket were Mike Lund/ Buzz Combe, Frank Snook/Eric Arras, Bob Gor-don/Cal Wells Jr., Jack Short, Jim and Mark Temple, and Len New-the start line. Even starting one car every 15 seconds, it was doubtful if they would all get off before the first of the Class 2 starters would finish their first lap. Sure enough, Brian Collins, the first Class 2 driver on augmented by SCORE course a predetermined time.

It was the first overall victo-ry, in fact class victory for the brothers from Las Vegas in the SCORE/HDRA series, although they have won before in SNORE events .. They race the old fashioned way with Ed driving the first two laps with Tim riding, then they switch seats at the fuel stop, so Tim drove to the finish with Ed riding shotgun. They raced without second gear for most of the distance, but had no other troubles, and they were overjoyed with the victory. Jack Johnson took off fast in his Class 4 Nissan, did a class fast lap on the third round, and carried on with absolutely no trouble to win the class by 50 minutes and finish sixth overall. Buddy Renoe and Bill Donahoe had a trouble free race for a change, and they drove the Dodge right into a fine second place in Class 4. Bob Gordon did a quick final lap to haul his Chenowth into sec-ond in Class 2, fourth overall, just a couple minutes up on Mike Lund. With a sagging rear suspension Jim and Lisa Greenway salvaged fourth, 3 1/2 minutes later, a mere 43 seconds ahead of Bob Richey.

Ivan Stewart whipped off fast lap for the class, 1:03:38 to lead the first lap in the radical Toyota, which looked to be working just fine this race. But in his dust, just two seconds back was Troy Herbst in a Chenowth/ Porsche, and Jim Stiles was just a minute behind him in the Raceco/ Toyota, with Mark McMillin only another six seconds down in his new Chenowth/Porsche. Jerry Leighton was about two minutes back in fifth, and Jim Bar-beau was a couple more minutes back in his Raceco. This bunch were really hauling. Leighton vanished on lap 2, along with two others, and McMil-lin edged Stewart for the lead by a scant 12 seconds. Herbst was back a half minute, with Stiles another minute in arrears, and now nobody else was close. But on the next lap Stiles retired with carburetion trou-ble, and McMillin was down with engine woes, and only six covered three laps and they all finished. Out front with a lap to go was Troy Herbst with 23 minutes in hand over second running John Kelly, Raceco. Despite losing about Hartrnut and Wolfram Klawitter led Class 5 from the second lap to the checkered flag, and it was the 22nd consecutive Class 5 finish for the brothers with the tidy race car.

Walker Evans was next, his Dodge doing a 1:05:41 with P.J. Jones, Parnelli's son, riding shot-gun. Dave Shoppe was back about 18 seconds here and a couple min-utes ahead of Chris Minor, who had big trouble on lap 2 and retired his Chevrolet midway in the fray. On the second lap Frank Ves-sels, with car builder Jon Nelson riding along, kept up a torrid pace to take over the lead by five minutes from McEachem, with Dodge boss Evans holding a minute and a half back, and Shoppe, with his son Brent in the right seat, was now down another seven minutes in fourth, and the others were well back. Not much changed on the next lap as Vessels, with the bit in his teeth, was going for the overall win and increased his leading margin. Evans did a 1:03:46 to take over second ahead of his mate. But on the final lap, McEachern had no troubles, and Evans dropped some time. But nobody was close to Frank Vessels who won Class 8 by nearly 24 minutes, and finished sec-ond overall, just over a minute out of the overall victory. Steve McEach:• em was a solid second, about three minutes ahead of Dodge mate Walker Evans, who had three min-utes on Dave Shoppe. Well back but finishing were Robin T ullener/ Dan Noyes, Ford, Dave Westhen/ Alex Bourland, brand new GMC, Michael Schuringa/ Jeff Bonnet, Chevrolet, and John Gable/Curt LeDuc, in a brand new Ford. Class 10 had a 19 car field, but three failed on the first lap, and it must have been tough running in the Class 8 dust. There was a good wind blowing, which helped a lot, but dust was still the major hazard. Mike and Wayne Withers did class fast lap on round 1 in the RaCeCo, a 1: 10: 18. It was tight though. Sec-ond was Steve Barlow, eight seconds back, followed by Kirk Van Matte, another eight seconds down, but his Raceco was not seen again. Scott and Kent Pfeiffer were half a minute back in their Chenowth followed Tom and Bob DeNault had troubles with the Chenowth on the first lap, Lyn Mocaby moved steadily up the chart in Class 5 lap by lap, and after Greg Vaughan and Stan Parnell flew their Baja Bug quickly over the bumps, but they fought back to finish well, fifth in Class 1/2-1600. four laps Mocaby took third by just three minutes time. and charged right into a fine fourth in the Class 5 contest.

Greg Aronson, following close in heavy dust coming toward Check 3 had a serious problem, with near zero visibility, and, as he saw some marker cones he also saw a person on the outside of the turn where he was driving, and unfortunately couldn't avoid hitting the man, although he had the Craig Watkins Raceco well slowed down by then. Workers and medics from the check were on hand immediately, and eventually Aronson went on down the course, but after Watkins did another lap in the car they retired. The man was airlifted to Loma Linda University Hospital with probably multiple leg and torso fractures, and was listed in serious condition at that time. Midway in the Class 10 bash, 14 were still in motion, but eight were gone shortly. Here Mike Wil-liams had his Meco in the lead with a minute 50 second lead on Mike Withers, but Williams was seen no more. The Pfeiffers were another minute back, followed in 49 seconds by Poe's two seat ORE, and Michael Church was next, but soon went to the pits for good with timing gear troubles, as did the Di-novitz car, here only another eight seconds back. Six covered three laps and W ith-ers was back in front with 24 sec-onds lead over the Pfeiffer Che-nowth. Poe, with Phil Kehoe riding along was only four more seconds down,and nobody else was close. But the final lap put Withers on the trailer, and Poe down for an hour with a broken tie rod. Scott and Kent Pfeiffer went on to win the class and place 14th overall, a fine finish for the former bike champions. Steve Barlow had his woes on lap 2, but came back strong to place second, 15 minutes later in his JMR. With a steady drive, Steve Centurioni and Bob Scott got the ORE home third, followed in by the luckless Bill Poe. A long second lap, but a fifth place finish went to Mike Petersen and Pat Dean in another of those quick Las Vegas Chenowths, and only five saw the checkered flag. With an all new percentage sys-tem of determining starting order, Classes 4 and 7 incredibly started ahead of Class 1-2-1600 this race. The incredible part is that the new system is designed to be a benefit to the very low entry but high manu-facturer interest groups. Anyhow, a big eight started in Class 4, but it was no contest for the win from the green flag. Jack Johnson, with Brent Foes riding in the Nissan racer, whipped off a 1:07:03 first lap, and the next three laps varied Dusty Times only by two minutes. Johnson won the class by 50 minutes with no strain and was sixth overall, the third of four victories of the day for Las Vegas drivers. Steve Kelley/ Ben Metcalf had their Chevrolet in second on lap 1, only three minutes back, with Buddy Renoe/Bill Do-nahoe next more than seven more minutes down, followed in another minute by John Dyck, whose Jeep Continued on page 32 .

Jack Ramsay, former overall points champ, scored his first victory in a truck, taking the Class 7 4x4 lead on the third lap, and Jack went on to win in the Jeep Comanche. Darren York and Steve Schlachter ran a fast and steady pace in their Ford Ranger, and the team drove to second place in Class 7 44. Continuing their winning streak (Baja 1000, Parker) Scott and Bill Reams led all the way to victory in their ORC. They can't believe their good fortune with another trouble free race, and they won by a mere minute, 43 seconds. John Mark-ing/Gary Cogbill held second by over five minutes, with Kevin and Brian Smith in for third. These three teams maintained position through the entire race! Curt Fer-rar and Max Pina were fourth, just over another minute down but a comfortable nine minutes up on Tom and Bob DeNault. Craig For-est finished another minute, 17 seconds down, followed by Claudio Ponte, back another 3 1/2 minutes, followed in less than two minutes by Pauley and Iaudiorio, who had four minutes on Jerry Rice. With a steady drive Greg Akins finished 10th, and with three quick laps young Doug Fortin Jr. placed 14th Out of the 33 who finished. Spencer low had the Nissan back on form after disaster at Parker, and with Paul Delang riding along, low took the lead on the first lap and never looked back en rough to victory. J-10 went no farther. In fifth was Rod Hall who did a big time endo in the old Dodge on the first lap, but he and Jim Fricker carried on.

On lap 3 Kelley lost a left rear hub which tossed the wheel into the des-ert, after banging into the cab and fender, and he lost over an hour in repairs. The order set on the third lap lasted through the race, with seventh running Greg Hindson fail-ing to finish. Buddy Renoe and Bill Donahoe were second at the flag with a good run in the Dodge that, oddly enough, is race prepped by Rod Hall's boys Chad and Josh in Reno. Rod Hall and Jim Fricker had a quick in their aging Dodge. Steve Kelley salvaged fourth with a 1: 11 final round.

Runn Jones was down another three minutes iti., fourth, followed by Brian and Lynn Dolinar, Ford. Mears turned -up the wick on the next lap to take over second, about seven minutes ahead of Lee, who was eight minutes ahead of Jones. Mears increased his margin on the next lap over Lee to 14 minutes, Jones had big trouble, still held fourth, but he and Rick O'Donnell failed to finish in the Ford. At the flag Roger Mears/ Tony Alvarez were a clear second in the Nissan, 43 minutes faster than the Wayne Lee/Marc Cartwright Chevy. Brian an Lynn Dolinar had big problems on lap 3 but got the Ford in for a fourth place finish. · Class 1-2-1600 was the biggest by far, with 49 starters and 33 of them finished four laps. The sheer size and the close competition in this class made it difficult to follow, and we may have missed some top runners in the early laps.

The honors include longtime BFGoodrich desert racing support coordinator and BFGoodrich employee Jeff Cummings named as the Sal Fish SCORE Person of the Year. SCORE International also recognized BFGoodrich Tires as its con-tingency company of the year for the 22nd time and the pit support partner of the year for the 24th time at the annual SCORE Awards. "We are beyond thrilled to be recognized by our peers and fans in off-road racing," said Peter Calhoun, motorsports manager for BFGoodrich Tires. "Our dedication to the off-road community and SCORE International continues to be strong and we appreciate knowing our efforts are being recognized." For Cummings, this was his first selection as SCORE Person of the Year in his 34 year career. It is the fifth time that a BFGoodrich employee has been named Person of the Year by the racing organiza-tion. Cummings provides race and corporate support for off-road racing and helps coordinate the unprecedented pit support programs for the company. "Jeff is an icon in the desert racing world and his direct work with the SCORE International race community has strengthened our company and the sport," added Calhoun. "BFGoodrich Tires has been supporting desert racing, especially SCORE, for 37 years," said Fish, SCORE's CEO who also celebrated his retirement at the awards. "To win the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 once is a major feat, but to capture the world's most prestigious desert race 20 straight years (1986-2005) and 25 times all together is unbelievable. BFGoodrich Tires are the most dominant desert racing tires in the world and we are privileged to be able to honor them. BFGoodrich Tire's support of desert racers is unparalleled. I am personally deeply humbled to have had the relationship with BFGoodrich Tires that I have had for nearly four decades. No mo-torsport has a more involved or a more committed sponsor, contin-gency donor and pit support group than SCORE has in BFGoodrich Tires."

(Feb. 11, 2013) -While the desert can be cruel, it proved to be a welcom-ing landscape this weekend for BFGoodrich® Tires and its rac-ing teams. Teams running the company's high performance off road tires claimed four of the top five spots including the overall title for the fifth time in the past six years at the grueling Griffin King of the Hammers competi-tion in Johnson Valley, Calif. All four of these finishers competed on BFGoodrich Baja TI A KRT-B tires, specially de-signed for rock racing and the punishing desert terrain found at the King of the Hammers. Of the 27 finishers of the 2013 Grif-fin King of the Hammers, 15 ran on BFGoodrich Tires. Randy Slawson of Colton, California was the first to cross the finish line after pacing the field in the 165-mile race over desert and rocks. Slawson fin-ished in a time of 7: 28: 10, more than 20 minutes ahead of the second place finisher, Shannon Campbell, a two-time winner of the King of the Hammers. Slawson, with co-driver and brother Chris, started ninth on the day after recording the sec-ond best qualifying time earlier in the week for all last chance qualifiers. Despite changing weather conditions that includ-ed sun, high winds and the threat of rain and snow, Slawson described his day as routine. "We pretty much didn't get ut of the car all day," said an elated Slawson. "It was a really a flawless run and we had a blast. It's the best tire I have ever run. There were areas where others were just spinning and we had total traction." The Slawson entry, running on BFGoodrich 39 inch tires, only experienced one slight ad-ju s tm en t as he had one tire maintain a slow leak but the tire held its form to enable for an easy change. "With the one flat it was such a slow leak it took ten minutes for us to notice," added Slawson. "I am sure we did something to it to cause that. The tires were amazing." Chicky Barton charged down the final hill to finish in third, just behind Campbell in a time of 8:23:50. Barton reached the final podium spot after starting 24th and ran the entire race on the same set.of BFGoodrich tires he started with. "Both me and my dad have run BFGoodrich from day one," said Barton after the day of work on the course. "The climbing on these tires was phenomenal and overall performed great all day." Last year's winner, Erik Mill-er, finished fourth after starting 16th, also running on BFGo-odrich tires and not experienc-ing a single issue. BFGoodrich Tires also par-ticipated in a robust contin-gency program for 2013. Under the program Slawson received $7,500 as the overall winner. The success in California came on the heels of similar results at the first Best in the Desert race of the season the February 2013 Parker 425 where BFGoodrich drivers claimed eight total class wins in Parker, Ariz. Jason Voss, running on BFGoodrich 39 inch BAJA TI AKR tires for the first time, claimed the overall win for the unlimited truck and buggy class categories driving his class 1400 Trick Truck. Gary Weyhrich, also on BF-Goodrich tires, placed second with a time of 7:10:21. "This was the first race in 17 races that neither I nor my co-rider did not have to get out of the truck. We had no flat tires and no mechanical issues. The changes we made in our race program were what we needed to be on top. BFGoodrich tires played a big part in this finish and we are very happy with these tires," said Richie Voss, Jason's father. BLUERIBBON COALITION, INC. Contact: Greg Mumm, BRC Executive Director Phone: (208) 244-2112 Email: Date: February 7, 2013 Obama's pick to be the new Secretary of the Interior presents both challenges and opportuni-ties for the OHV community. POCATELLO, ID (February 7, 2013) - President Barack Obama announced yesterday his choice of Sally Jewell to replace outgoing Interior Secretary Ken Salazar. Jewell is the current CEO of Rec-reational Equipment Inc. (REI). She is described in the media as a former oil engineer, commercial banker and a pragmatic business leader who will "work with both parties and interest groups on all sides." Greg Mumm, BRC's Executive Director, said he hoped Jewell's appointment would translate into expanding a diverse range of recreational pursuits on pub-lic lands and National Parks. "There needs to be a focus for providing both motorized and non-motorized uses. Recent man-agement plans have closed nearly 50% of the roads and trails open for motorized recreation. There is a need for a better balance." Mumm notes any loss of motor-ized recreation on public lands locks out Americans who choose or are required to use OHVs for recreation, and fails to take ad-vantage of the economic benefits of sustainable OHV.and snowmo-bile use. But Jewell's nomination comes with questions for the OHV and snowmobile community. One concern is the anti-OHV activism that has been a hallmark of both REI and the National Parks Con-servation Association (NPCA), where Jewell serves as a board member. REI has long supported anti-access groups such as the Si-erra Club and the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. The NPCA has been at the forefront of many anti-OHV and OSV lawsuits at such places as Denali National Park and Preserve in Alaska, Yel-lowstone National Park in Wyo-ming and Big Cypress National Preserve in Florida. On the other hand, Jewell's private sector ties hopefully re-fleet her understanding of recre-ation's unique place and potential importance to rural tourism and local economies. "We hope that, in her first role as a public servant, we see Sally Jewell balancing her personal predisposition to non-motorized recreation with legally supportable and just-as-popular forms of motorized recreation on both Park and non-Park lands," Mumm concluded. ### The BlueRibbon Coalition is a national recreation group that champions responsible recreation, and encourages individual en-vironmental stewardship. With members in all 50 states, BRC is focused on building enthusiast involvement with organization-al efforts through membership, outreach, education, and col-laboration among recreationists. 1-800-BlueRib - www.sharetrails. org FRANK DeANGELO JOINS THE OFF-ROAD MOTOR-SPORTS HALL OF FAME BOARD OF DIRECTORS The Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame is proud to an-nounce Frank DeAngelo has joined the Board of Directors.

RALLY AMERICA ADDS 2013 MANUFAC-TURERS' NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP Williston, VT (January 22, 2013) - Rally America announced today that it is adding the Manu-facturers' National Championship to the 2013 Rally America Nation-al Championship, which begins at the season opener Sno*Drift Rally, in Atlanta, MI, on January 25-26. Overall, Super Production (SP), Two-Wheel Drive (2WD), and B-Spec Class teams will be eligible to compete in the battle of the brands. The Manufacturers' Nation-al Championship will pit Rally America's most commonly found manufacturer brands, such as Honda, Scion, Subaru, Ford, and Mitsubishi, against one another. Every driver in the Overall, SP, 2WD, and B-Spec Class has a stake in the manufacturer's out-come as the top finishing car in each category wins that driver's brand a total of 22 points after each round. "This creates even more excite-ment for the manufacturers, fans and teams this year," said Bill Fogg, Sr., President of Rally Amer-ica, "The Manufacturers' National Championship heightens the par-ticil)ants already overflowing com-petitive emotions." Rally America is also proud to announce the participating sponsors: Subaru of America, Inc., Ford Racing and Honda Performance Development, which are making this exciting new race competition open to all brands. "The re-introduction of a man-ufacturer's title signals a positive development for Rally America and growth for the series. As a brand, Subaru is closely associated with rallying which has been a core component of our motors-port heritage," said James Han, motorsports mar-keting manager for Subaru of America, Inc. Rally America will recognize the manufacturer with the high-est accumulated points, in each class, at the season-ending Lake Superior Performance Rally on October 16-17 in Houghton, MI with a yet to be named Manufac-turer's Trophy. "Winning manufacturer cham-pionships is very important for Ford. Over the last few years we've seen the level of manufacturers, competition and competitors grow and we are excited Rally America is helping reignite the manufac-turer rivalry in the sport," said Scott Denby, Marketing and Strat-egy Development Manager, Ford Racing, "There are many drivers who have chosen to race a Ford in the series and we are pleased this championship will allow a manufacturer to recognize every car that contributes throughout the season." "Today's announcement is encouraging for the growth of rallying in North America, where many racers already compete us-ing Honda products," said Marc Sours, Commercial Director, Honda Performance Develop-ment, the racing arm of American Honda. "The addition of the B-Spec category in the champion-ship is particularly encouraging, as this is a great entry-level, cost-effective class. Interest in rally racing is growing, as evidenced by Microsoft's inclusion of the Hon-da Fit B-Spec Rally in their new Forza Horizon video game. We are pleased to offer the support of the Honda Racing Line program to Rally America competitors."

Looking to find a way to help light his pathway to the future of desert racing, SCORE International's Roger Norman has selected Arizona's Rigid Industries as the official lighting company for the world's foremost desert racing organization. Joining with another relatively new company in Rigid, Norman's new SCORE continues to rapidly expand its base of sponsor partners heading into the 2013 SCORE Desert Series. Since 2004, Rigid Industries of Mesa, Ariz., has emerged as an industry leader and originator of the most efficient LED lighting solutions. Leading the Rigid Elite Torture Team of prominent SCORE desert racers is three-time SCORE Trophy Truck season point champion B.J. Baldwin of Las Vegas. The sponsorship agreement includes Rigid being the official lights of SCORE International as well as the other desert racing series Norman owns, the High Desert Racing Association and the new World Championship of Desert Racing bonus point program. "SCORE will continue to strive to help evolve our sport of desert racing and with the technology of Rigid Industries LED lights, this exciting sponsorship is a major stepping stone in that process," said Norman in making the announcement. "Rigid likes to refer to their racers as being on the 'torture team' that tests their products and now both SCORE and HDRA will add a new level of 'torture' to their research and development." In addition to three-time SCORE Trophy Truck season point champ Baldwin (2006, 2008 and 2012) other key SCORE racers and teams that are part of the Rigid Elite Torture Team are COPS Racing Oohn Langley, Morgan Langley and Zak Langley) Green Army Oustin Davis, Kyle LeDuc), Dan Chamlee, Steve Hengeveld and Brandon Walsh. "Rigid Industries is honored to become the official lighting company for the future of desert racing with Roger Norman's purchase of SCORE International and re-starting of HDRA," commented Taylor Anderson, a partner in and Vice-President of Rigid Industries. "Sal Fish will be missed for all of the contributions he made to lay the foundation for this sport but we also know that Roger will launch desert racing into amazing new frontiers." Rigid Industries pioneered the forward projecting, high intensity LED light bar. With two manufacturing facilities, one in Mesa, Arizona and the other in Gilbert Arizona, they are the industry leader in efficient LED lighting solutions while still maintaining class leading affordability as a domestic manufacturer. Their patented Hybrid and Specter optics systems combined with state of the art electronics and latest LED binning makes their LED lighting second to none. Rigid Industries patented technology allows their lights to project up to 40% greater LUX, while drawing less power than most competitors.
