Team BFGoodrich member Bryce Menzies finishes with third place finish. BFGoodrich Tires, the tire that has dominated desert racing for decades, took seven of the top 10 overall finishers in the Trophy Truck category as well as five overall class wins to lead alhire manufacturers at the 45th running of the Tecate SCORE 2013 Baja 500. The company owns 29 overall wins at the Baja 500. Robby Gordon went off first on Saturday, overcame an early stumble and went on to claim the overall victory and the Trophy Truck division at the 501-mile race in a time of just over 10 hours. It was Gordon's 10th career SCORE Trophy Truck win. Team BFGoodrich members Bryce Menzies (3rd), Rob MacCachren (7th) and Dan McMillin (ll'h) led a contingent of more than 20 racers on the tires that have won more races in Baja than any other tire -BFGoodrich Baja T/A KR and BFGoodrich TIA KRT. This year's course ran over 501 miles and challenged drivers with every piece of difficult terrain Baja has to offer including some new and seldom-used areas along the loop from the start/finish line in Ensenada, Mexico. Menzies Three Peat Bid Falls Short• Having won the last two SCORE Baja 500 races, Team BFGoodrich member Bryce Menzies was poised to make history. Going off the line third, Bryce quickly. set a pace staying within striking distance of the leaders. Prior to going off the line Bryce mentioned his game plan "to get to Borrego and make sure the truck is good there and we'll push to the finish." While the truck was in good shape at that point, around race mile 200, the team had slipped to fifth then later experienced mechanical issues.

"The course was tough-silty and rocky but we had a good day." While the No. 70 Red Bull Trophy Truck recovered and gained positions, they seemed destined to give the Baja 500 crown to a new driver. His finishing time was 10 hours and 22 minutes, just seven minutes behind B.J. Baldwin who placed second. Menzies summed the day by saying, "You can't pass someone unless someone has a problem. We got to open air and made up some time. It just wasn't our day. We won this race two years in a row and would have been cool to get a three peat. BFG tires were just amazing. Some of the things they get through are just amazing." Team BFGoodrich Members Fare Well -The three members of the 2013 Team BFGoodrich crew competing in the 2013 SCORE Baja 500 accorded themselves well in the rough, silty 501-mile course in the Baja peninsula of Mexico. Bryce Menzies was looking to win his third straight Baja 500, an accomplishment not _equaled since the legend Ivan Stewart did so from 1997-99. Starting third, Menzies ran into some trouble midway through the race but managed to stay into contention and finished third with an unofficial time of 10 hours and 22 minutes. Rob MacCachren started mid pack and quickly moved to the top 10 where he stayed for most of the day. After losing a few spots due to an issue with the starter and stopping to help pull Troy Herbst and Ryan Arciero out of trouble, MacCachren, who won this race in 1996, placed seventh on overall time. Finally, Daniel McMillin started 21st and managed to move past competitors that experienced more problems. Fighting the darkness and difficult dust conditions late in the race, McMillin and co-driver Chuck Hovey pulled in 11th• Voss' Early Lead Ends In Disappointment -Shortly after starting off the line second for the Baja 500, Jason Voss took a quick lead when Robby Gordon spun his Speed Energy Trophy Truck less than 10 miles from i:he start while still in the Ensenada city limits. Voss then.held the lead through the first 100-plus miles before a transmission issue parked the team for the duration of the race. Voss, who won the Parker 425 Best In the Desert race to start the desert racing season had strong expectations after a solid qualifying run. Herbst Stays Tight in World Championship Standings with Fourth Place Finish • Tim Herbst and Larry Roeseler ran a steady race and helped Tim stay in the hunt for the World Championship Standings. Coming in with the championship lead, the team finished well above those chasing him in the top four and Herbst remains in the points lead. "We are a little upset with a fourth," said Herbst. "We ran about third after Larry got out of the car, then we had a flat tire and Bryce got around us." The No. 19 Terrible Herbst Truck gained seven spots from their starting spot of 11th and at one point in the race was tied for the lead with B.J. Baldwin at the second BFGoodrich Pit stop around Race Mile 230.

The victory marks the duo's second STPR Rally overall win and it comes at a critical time when Block needed a victory to close the gap to current Rally America National Championship points leader, David Higgins and Craig Drew from Subaru Rally Team USA. Block and Gelsomino were able to win 12 of 16 STPR Rally stages in their 2012 Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. without much of the mechanical problems that have plagued the team since the beginning of the season. "The weekend went really well," said Block, "The first three (Rally America) events of the year went really horrible for me. I am really happy to come here at STPR and have an event with some good luck." Block never relinquished the STPR Rally lead from the event's first stage and built a solid margin over second place finisher, David Sterckx and Karen Jankowski, this year's top finishing Super Production Class drivers. After winning the last two Rally America rounds, Subaru Rally Team USA quickly lost ground when they broke a steering arm on stage 3 that knocked them out of contention. The team returned to competition on Saturday using SuperRally rules, which allows a team to compete for Championship points after a time penalty, and began Saturday in the 21" position and drove outright to salvage a third plac;e overall podium finish. Higgins also benefited when FY Racing's Adam Yeoman and Jordan Schulze's engine seized on stage 10. At that time Yeoman held second overall and appeared to be holding the position until the drastic engine failure. David Sterckx and Karen Jankowski's overall podium paralleled their hard fought Super Production Class victory.

The final section, a transit, was Highway 1 again, as it crawled along the ~astern edge of the peninsula, into Loreto which was the over-night stop. On a sad note, biker Jimmy Stocker, from Rathdrum, Idaho lost his life in an accident late on the second day, as he neared the end of the second special stage. Dr. Buddy Feldkamp, a medical doctor, also racing, was a few cars behind him, and stopped to give first aid, but it was to no avail. At the La Mision, which is entirely different from its an-cient and beautiful namesake of 40 years ago, survivors of Day 2 enjoyed a sumptuous buffet, plenty of liquid refreshment, and loud music. In front of the hotel the Gulf of California shimmered in the warm tropical air, under the palm trees edg-ing the malecon. It's a gorgeous town. The next day the race restarted at a comfortable mid-morning, on the road that leads up to San Javier and the mission there, which dates to 1699. The distance is roughly 23 miles to the mission, ana it was very . curvy and mostly uphill, with a lot of sharp drop offs, some lovely views, and, big surprise, paved all the way to the mis-Kyle Eickoff took top honors in £100 class at the NORRA event, Kyle is seen here heading for the next checkpoint in his Jeep. sion. Beyond that it turned to a well traveled dirt road, with a fair number of water crossings, and also some cows, horses, burros and the lot, a few of whom thought it was their road. As it got further to the west, gradually dropping down into west-coast weather and flora, the riverbeds became bone dry and very rocky. But for the most part the road was a fast one, finishing at a checkpoint north of Insurgentes. Then there was a 44 mile Transit, on the high-way, to a sudden left turn to the east, on a beautiful hard-packed road. This wandered around in the gentle hills for about sixty miles, then intersected and crossed Highway 1 and from there wandered another 63 miles mostly southward, nearly on the beach, on roads well used by SCORE and Dos Mares racers for many years. There was silt, and there was sand, spiny vegetation, holes, sharp turns, and beautiful scenery. At the end of that Special Stage there was a seven mile secondary road, paved, that headed east to the pavement of Highway 1. Then it was a Transit of just about 30 miles, into La Paz, and the south end of the malecon. This was accomplished during the late afternoon rush hour traffic of one of Baja's busiest cities. Very frustrating and diffi-cult driving, but the finish line ramp led the racers down onto the La Paz malecon, crowded with race fans and well wish-ers. Once again it was time for dinner, bench racing, catching up with old friends, and maybe some fine-tuning on the car. Or, maybe not. In the morning the race re-started in front of the Grand Plaza (where SCORE has fin-ished their peninsula runs for the last many years), and tran-sited out through the suburbs and into the outskirts of La Paz to San Pedro, where the Transit made a right turn (after alJ.out 17 miles) onto a nice sandy/ silty road through tall trees, cacti and stickery shrubs. There were fences and cattle guards to jump, but clumps of specta-·tors at each one made it clear there'd be a jump. Navigat-ing was intense, as there were lots of lefts and rights, around fences, through gates, heading always west and south toward (but not into) Todos Santos. Before actually getting into the suburbs of Todos Santos, the course turned east, did a tour through the dump, then angled a bit north, turned further east, crossed Highway 19, and started winding up into the hills, which rapidly became mountains. This part of the stage was about 60 miles long, and very tricky, but fun. This was the Sierra de La Laguna, and the road entered on the west side, then traveled upward, always winding, with decreasing radius turns, many of which were off-camber. There were no guard rails, just straight Paul Clark is seen here peeling off at the rally start, Paul finished second Oscar Rodriguez finished 15th overall, second in the EVWS category, Rob Usnick won the bronze medal for his skills in the £0845 category, in the £0845 class, he was the 14th overall finisher.

drop offs, or sheer cliffs reach-ing up to the next section of road. Rocks littered the cross washes, peppered the hillsides, and appeared poised to tumble down at any moment. Some of the rocks were easily as big as a Volkswagen, some bigger. The road would make a sudden turn, and just a few feet in front of the vehicle would be a rain-rutted 30 foot uphill, appar-ently going nowhere. It would have been very difficult for a team without a OPS. It wasn't easy with it. The trail would go up, cross a short plateau, drop down a bit, then head up again, and across the valley could be seen another mountain, with yet another road hacked out of the side, winding up and up. Some of the countryside was lovely, and there were a couple of small towns, and some isolat-ed ranchos tucked away in the peaks. Ultimately, after a total of about 106 miles for the stage, it dropped down on the eastern edge of the peninsula, right at Highway l. Then there was a four mile transit on the high-way, and the trail-dropped into an unlovely deep, soft sand-wash, sprinkled with rocks, heaps of trash, or isolated bits of solid ground. This was Super Secret Special Stage 2, and it was 20 miles long and headed right to the finish line in San Jose de! Caho, in front of the Municipal Palace. The wash was not on the official OPS maps for some reason, but NORRA had handed out sheets with all the coordinates listed on them, and those who were computer/ OPS savvy had spent some hours downloading the data into their GPSs. Racers were told that it would not be difficult, _because they'd "marked" this bit of the course. But the markings were few and far between -tacked up too high for easy spotting by drivers vigilantly watching Grant Reuter piloted his good looking Ford pickup to a first off the podium finish, Grant is seen here headin' for the bam. James Gibbons won the gold medal for his class in Mexico, he is seen here rallying his Ford to a 20th overall finish. the road, and way too close to the turn or drop off or hill they were identifying. By the time the navigator found the marker and hollered "left" or "right" the driver would be right there, and the ground was too soft to allow stopping and thinking about it. But, ultimately, most · made it through the wash, and . the outskirts of San Jose del Caho, to the finish. Some racers had hardly enough time to get out of their drivers suits and shower before the big awards celebration, but most made the effort. A huge crowd, estimated at 850, filled the open air dining/swimming/ drinking area of the Caho Azul for a buffet dinner and drinks, then the awards, which had to be rushed so that the fireworks could be shot off before the 10 p.m. cut-off time. It was a beau-tiful Baja evening, with balmy weather and lots of good race stories floating around. As it turned out, the overall winner was Gary Williams, teamed with Ryan Arciero, in a '96 Protruck, which ran in the Evolution Unlimited class.

Steve drove Days 1 and 2, while Bryce did 3 and 4. On Day 3, down by the beach, before getting to LaPaz, Bryce missed a turn and tried to back up to turn around and got stuck with the back end of the car up in a tree.

Williams/ Arciero Pro-truck, and hoping to find a way around him, to the front of the Bud Feldkamp finished first in class, second overall in Mexico, Bud is seen here awaiting the.start in the venerable single seater. pack, but in the middle of the mountains his alternator went out. -Luckily, they were at a wide spot, didn't jam everything up, and they had a spare which they quickly installed and went on to finish first in class and third overall, with a time of 12:44:59. They're already talking about going back to do it again. Behind Menzies, in what they identified as a "Big Prerunner", a Desert Dynamics four-seater, it was the Jergensens, Todd and Shirley and their son Kyle. This was their first time also. Shirley navigated the first two days and part of the third. The first day they had some troubles. One of their fans broke, so they overheated, and in addition to that, they'd put a windshield on, and that made it hotter, so they took the windshield off, and "shoved it on top of Kyle, who was crammed in the back." Said Shirley, "That didn't work so we broke out the glass, and put it (the frame) back on." At one point Todd drove off a ten foot cliff, to drive over a dead tree that took out their brake lines, so they had no brakes for 40 miles. Kyle drove the second two days, with his dad, Todd, navigating, while Shir-ley became part of the chase crew rather than sit in the back where she'd have been carsick. They had a slight hole in one c.v. boot, but kept adding grease and had no trouble. Mostly, said Kyle, they kept "a slow pace", but they had a nice little race with Car 120 (Brandon Daw-son) in the same class. One of their most exciting moments came when, early on the last day a bull charged them, "With big ol' horns -kinda scary." Like quite a few teams, they did it with minimal crew -just one truck and two friends chas-ing, and Shirley sometimes navi-gating, sometimes in the chase truck. They're already planning on doing it again, and Kyle said, "I liked it a lot!" Their time was 12:54: 14. In third in this class it was a part of the Brown/Johnson/ Richardson/Miller team. This was their chase team, a four-seater that ran with just two people, and parts. The drivers were Brandon Dawson, Dustin Miller (who also drove the win-ning buggy), and Mark-Johnson. They called themselves "Team Bucket List". Their navigators were Don Blakley, Shawn Carri-eron, Brian Hasenack and Mike Hoppman. They stayed out of trouble for the most part, but on Day 2 they ran out of gas because, while they had a 35 gallon tank, and thought they'd be able to slurp up 32 gallons of it, they had access only to 27 gal-lons. Wltimately, they finished third in the prerunner class, fin-ishing in 13:02:00 (ahead of the car they were "chasing.") In the class called "Evolution,trucks with hinged doors" the winning team was the Herbsts in a '94 Chevy 1500, presumably with hinged doors. Larry Roeseler was part of the team until it got to Co-co's corner, and then he headed north. Troy Herbst and his dad, Jerry, were also signed on, but we're not sure if Tim and Ed, the other brothers were both there. Their time was 12: 18:36. In second in that class, it was the 1990 Toyota of Mike Koe-nig from up n the Sacramento a"rea. Koenig had Wes Har-bor as navigator, and Shannon Harwell and Chris Radbourne were the other team. They had a bad vibration from a bent output shaft on the transmis-sion for the whole race. Their top speed was "68mph, with · your teeth about to fall out." They said that by driving "slow and steady" they made it all the way. But at the end of Day 3, the vibration took out the ring and pinion eight miles from the finish. Dave Cole's truck towed them in behind his 4Runner, so they could replace it. On the last day, Harwell said that the brakes weren't working for the final 20 miles, so they looked it over and it looked o.k. Then Koenig got in, drove about 30 feet, and the front wheel fell off due to a bad bearing. As Koenig said, "Talk about dumb luck!" They fixed it and went through the last stage without a hitch. And, said Koenig, "That was by far the most fun at a race I have ever had!" Their time was 15: 14:24. In the Evolution .Stock VW Beetle class, the winning team•• was made up of Klaus Rasch, Gus Vildosola and Martin Garibay in a car that they s~y could run in SCORE's Class 11. On Day 1 Vildosola started and he lost some time with belt problems on Laguna Salada.

111 fuel pump was not d~livering fuel at full capacity, as a result the car was underpowered and got stuck for over ~n hour in the soft stuff at the south end. He fixed the fuel pump. On the third stage, down by Coco's, it was "flawless, fast, uneventful." Day 2 the first stage was driv-en by Vildosola and the second by Garibay, and the whole day was· uneventful. On Day 3 with Rasch driv-ing SS 1, he said, "Angry driving caused one flat right away in the rock wash." They were hav-ing a problem with "slower big cars that go fast in the straight and produce dust and then don't make room in the rough where we are on their bumper." They also had a small oil leak in an oil cooler line, so they lost enough oil to need to add it a couple of times. On Special Stage 2 that day Garibay had a broken tie rod and a crew per-son had to bring in a spare to replace it. On Day 4 Rasch was back in, and he found Special Stage 1 "fun, fast ... passing people, good times." Vildosola got back in at Todos Santos and went to the finish, uneventfully. Their time was 18: 10:03. They · are already making plans for next year. In second place in this class it was Oscar Rodriguez,· Ale-jandro Pina, Gil Alontaga, Jose Perez and Jim Ruehlen, who came from Texas. The rest are apparently all from mainland Mexico, about as far south as you can go, but on the gulf side, in Campeche. Their car was a nice little 5/ 1600, at least that's ·what the body seemed to be, as far as the motor goes, we couldn't tell. They seemed to run a steady pace, but ran into trouble somewhere, and amassed a huge penalty of three hours and 50 minutes somehow. Their total time was 20:06:41. Our team was third. John Howard drove all the way, I nav-igated the first, third and fourth days and Howard Anderson nav-igated Day 2. The fourth mem-ber of our team, Roy Moore, Dave Cole took the gold medal in the V108 category in Mexico, Dave is seen here ready to start in his Toyota Pickup. chased. We had no problems, besides assorted aches and pains associated with advanced age. It was the first time we'd used a OPS to navigate, and that took some adjusting. The old VW came through the ordeal in tip top condition in 20:07:34, and just 2 minutes of penalties. · In the E 100 class, Kyle and Melinda Eickhoff brought their '88 Jeep Wrangler to the fin-ish line as winner, even with a very long and t_ime consuming Day 2. Their total time was 25:00:32. In the Vintage classes, Walk-er Evans brought out the '78 Dodge in which he'd won the Baja 1000 overall (beating bikes & car and trucks) in 1979 -and won the Vintage classes this year. He said that now he's "won the Baja 1000 10 times." He had promised himself he'd do it. -in that truck -before he retired it. So now it gets to go back into storage and take it easy. Walker didn't have a flawless race. His first problem came on Day 1, about three miles past Coco's. The engine quit because he was low on fuel and his fuel stop was three miles down the road on the highway: What happened was, because it's a fuel-injected motor, the fuel got hot and boiled because the tank was almost empty, and then the pickup didn't work. So he had to have his guys come in with a dump can, and that took about 20 minutes. But once he had the fuel it ran fine. Then, on Day 2, when he caught and passed another car, it apparently threw up a small rock, which punched a tiny hole in his radiator. Eventually, the radiator got hot, ·but at about that time Walker reached the river-crossing near La Purisima, so he topped off the radiator, which took about 15 minutes, and everything was good 'til he got to the Mag 7 pit. He asked them if they had anything for a leaky radiator, and they said they sure did, and poured in a jar of Stop Leak. Walker had no more radiator problems the rest of the way. Walker's naviga-tor was Aaron Florio, and they were both in the car all the way. Their time was 12:35:08, and they won the 60-car Vintage Classes overall, and placed 4th overall, when all entries, even bikes, are included. ' Walker and his friend, Butch Jensen, who drives a big pre-runner, took a few extra days coming back north, and drove the whole course of the race backwards -San Jose del Cabo to Mexicali. He said it was a great trip. Second to Evans was Gilbert Rodriguez in an '85 Chevy Sil-verado. He ran a steady pace Boyd Jaynes drove his really good looking Ford Bronco to the win in class V10877 at Norra, seen here crusin' along the.course. · Renato Villalpando drove his beautiful Ford Pickup to the Class VOTRL gold medal at NORRA, he's seen here in Pre-Rally activities. and finished with no penalties and a time of 16:05:50. In third it was a thing of beauty, and a teary-eyed mem-ory maker for many folks: the '75 Blazer that the late Frank "Scoop" Vessels used to race. Cam Thieriot bought it from Don Adams, who'd had it tucked away in a barn on his ranch for years, and then re-stored it to as close to its pre-vious state as possible. It was painted to look just as it looked when it was being campaigned in the late '70s. Scoop's son, Kash, was the driver of record, but Adams drove some, and so did Thieriot. Bob Hower navigated almost the entire dis-tance. Adams did Day 1 Special Stage 1, then Thieriot went to San Felipe and Vessels got in to finish in Bay of L.A. On Day 2 it was Vessels and Bower to San Ignacio, then Thieriot and Craig Williams to Loreto. And Day 3 Thieriot started and went all the way to La Paz, because Vessels didn't get to Constitucion in time to get in. Day 4 Thieriot drove to Todos Santos, and Vessels made it on time· to get in and go to the fin-ish. Bower navigated all except that Ignacio to. Loreto part.

Mark Harber took the gold.medal in the VOT4x4 action, Marie is seen here heading down course in his verrry long vehicle. In the Vintage buggy class, the winning team was Bud and Buddy Feldkamp. The father and son team drove the old Bel Ray Bullet, a 1975 Funco SSl, with an 1835cc Volkswagen mo-tor. The race was close with the second place car, and Buddy lost some time when he stopped to give first aid to the injured biker. But the officials erased his time loss there, and in the end the Feldkamps took the win in 13:36:49. Second to the Feldkamps, were George Erl and Mike Shatynski in Erl's old Class 10 Raceco. He put a Class 12 motor in it, two liters, low compression, so it would run on Pemex. George did most of the driving this time. The car is a single seat car, and although Erl says, "I'm no used to OPS" -he had two of them in his cockpit, and a "roll chart" on the steering wheel. He created the roll chart by tearing the pages out of the route book, taping them together, then rolling them up and mounting them on the steering wheel. (!) His aim with the OPS, he said, was to "keep it on the magenta line." One OPS gave just mile-age, one had the magenta line. When George had driven the first transit section from the Bullring in Mexicali, out to the north end of Laguna Salada, he discovered that the two GPSs were eight miles different. So he zeroed them both out and headed out into the race -and Laguna Salada. He saw dust to the right, so he aimed that way and noticed that three guys followed him, so he felt pretty good about the decision. But it wasn't long before he realized he was lost, and he couldn't see the magenta line on the OPS any more, so he was about ten miles off course. He found a military installation, which scared him a bit, but then found his way back out of the "tall weeds" and back to the dry lake. He was going across the lake, rather than on a trail, so he was in the soft stuff, and had to keep his momentum up. Ultimately he came across the trail again, and was back on the magenta line on the OPS. He stayed in the car through Diablo Dry Lake also, and had no trouble getting in to San Felipe, where h~ tried to go to the Malecon as we'd been told at the drivers' meeting. But traffic· was all jammed up, and no one else was going that way, so he cut through town, and headed towards Puerteci-tos. He stopped at the edge of Page 14 San Felipe to let Shatynski get in the car, so he'd get used to driving it. The race car got to Bay of L.A. just fine, but the left front lower arm was broken. They found ·someone in Walker Evans' pit to weld it for them, and packed it in for the night. The next day Shatynski drove again, and George met him on the highway where the transit started. Before George could take off for the section out to the beach he had to have the front end welded again, and there was a local guy right across the street from the San Ignacio gas station. He did a nice job, but George got to the start three minutes late, and earned a small penalty. He had no problems on the road, but was stopped by the accident with the biker, and spent some time waiting for the road to be clear, in the mean-while, slowing down oncoming cars, so no one else would be hit. Once moving again, he got to Loret6 in good shape. The next day each of them drove a section, and again, had no trouble, except that Shatynski finished on a flat. The fourth day George decided that the front end was not going to break again, so he started push-ing a little harder. He saw the Gordon car parked with a bro-ken hub, and that meant that he and Mike had just moved up a position. In the end, Erl and Shatynski took second place. Third in the Vintage Buggy group was the team of Jim and Lisa Greenway and Marty· Fiolka, with a brief assist from Tony Talbert, of General Tires. Greenway, who won the season points in SCORE's two-seat 1600 class in the old Raceco, in 1984, and has used the car as a prerunner ever since, did all the driving on Day 1, with Lisa navigating. The car is equipped with a 1776cc Type 1 VW mo-tor. They managed to get stuck between Diablo and San Felipe when they missed a turn, and lost 20 minutes before J. T. Taylor, one of the Rock Rac-ers, pulled them out. The next morning Fiolka drove from Bay of L.A. to San Ignacio, and then the Greenways got in and went to Loreto. On Day Three Greenway drove all and Lisa navigated again, as Fiolka (who was functioning as the PR per-son for NORRA, attended to details surrounding the unhap-py accident that took t's life.) was too busy to drive. On the last day Greenway was under the weather most of the night, Bert Tomba took first place honors in the VOTRL classffication on the NORRA rally, Bert is seen here navigating a rock strewn road. having eaten some seafood for dinner that apparently didn't agree with him. He'd been up all night, upchucking, and he felt miserable as he climbed into the car, but soon recov-ered. Talbert, who'd had some rally experience, was navigating for him. But by now he had no rear brakes, and on the very twisty and mountainous road "it was pretty exciting." There's not much steering when only the front brakes are working. But they made it, and their to-tal time was 15:18:58. In the Vintage Swing Axle buggy class, the winning team was made up of Andy DeVer-celly II, Andy Ill, and Andy IV, as well as Julie, Andy Ill's . wife, and Ginny, his daugh-ter, and Mike Sanford. They were driving a fiberglass buggy on a shortened pan that was a kind of tribute to the old "Bullfighter", a car originally built in 1969. This one was a prerunner, built in the same style, and still retained a lot of the old features, including the oid seats, newly recovered for this event. It was a swing axle car with a 1640cc motor, which ran on Pemex. They had, of course, updated to pumper helmets with radios, added a OPS, and used new high-tech shocks, spindles and so on. But it looked like a 1968 race car as it motored down the road. Andy II, who'd won the Baja 1000 in their original little car in '68 '(after hitting a bull) drove from the start to the end of Salada, and then went home to be with his wife, Flo, who hadn't been feeling well. From then on various people drove, including Andy Ill and IV, Mike Sanford, and Andy Ill's daughter, Ginny. Ill's wife, Julie, navigated. They tore up a hub on Day 2, and had a fuel pump problem on· Day 3, but in general kept moving forward and took the win in 23:24:09. It's not all fun and success. Many of the old timers giving it a go didn't make it, including some very experienced .people:· As Jon Kennedy (LJ's dad), Ben Schlimme, Randy Wil-son, Stuart Chase (who had a problem with a sleeve again), Mike Bilek, Jim Smith, and Pe-ter Lang, who discovered that three rollovers is one too many. Scott Steinberger dnf' d twice, and Dave Westhem, Morley Williams, Chris Wilson, Mark Post, Dave Sykes, Bob Land, and Bill Hernquist were also out early. We had fully expect-ed most of these folks to get to the finish. The reasons for their DNFs are unknown for the most part. Mark McMillin came a cropper when another car, driven by Jimmy Smith, got tangled with his on day one. McMillin suffered a broken collarbone in the incident, and the car was eventually retired, , with some front end problems apparently also caused by the tangle. McMillin had surgery, and was quickly back at work and recovering nicely. Almost everyone reports having a great time at this event. Maybe it's because they all seem to be fans of Baja, or maybe they're such dyed-in-the -wool off-roaders, or maybe it's the opportunity to recon-nect with some old friends, meet some new ones, and do some extraordinary bench-rac-ing each night in the local eat-eries and bars and in the backs of their pickups, or sitting on the curb of the parking lot. As Bob Gordon once .remarked, it's really nice to stop at night, meet up with your chase crew, and know they're not out there on dark roads, risking life and limb to support the race car. The drivers don't' have to worry so much about their crews at this event.

l lilore Trail Notes ... from page 7 STPR lead and as a result Sterckx will now assume the top of the Super Production Class standings from Evan Cline who skipped STPR in favor of attending the next round. "It was a good win especially after the last year we had," said Sterckx "We also started this season really bad, but after the second event we got better and now have won two events in a row. We have to keep it this way to win the Championship." Rally America's youngest rally driver, Mason Moyle, with co-driver John Hall took second place to land on their fourth Super Production podium, and Garry Gill (winner of an India National Rally Championship round in a two-wheel drive car) with co-driver Paddy Robinson took third place for his first U.S. podium. In only their second Rally America event Australians Brendan Reeves and Rhianon Smyth won the Two-Wheel Drive (2WD) category in their 2012 Ford Fiesta R2 despite Reeves dealing with a cold that sapped his stamina. Reeves led the category from the beginning and stayed just ahead of Scion Racing's Andrew Comrie-Picard and Jeremy Wimpey. Reeves impressively finished fourth overall besting his fifth overall finish at the Oregon Trail Rally. "The car performed excellent and we were trying to push to keep third place overall, but Higgins had to spoil that fun," said Reeves. "It's a great win and we'll see if we can keep racing in Rally America this year." Comrie-Picard survived three broken transmissions, a roll during testing, but more importantly finished second place to preserve his 2WD National standings lead. Amazingly, Dillon Van Way and Andrew Edwards, also came through a rough rally event to take third place despite a broken drive shaft, turbo power loss and a fused clutch. James Robinson and Jordan Guitar rebounded from not finishing at the Oregon Trail Rally to take the B-Spec Championship round win at STPR. Robinson keeps Honda on top of the B-Spec Manufacturers' Championship while leading his B-Spec category. Ford maintains third place in the overall Manufacturers' Championship, but gained some ground on Subaru, which leads both the overall and the Super Production categories. Ford will overtake Scion for the Two-Wheel Drive category in the Manufacturers' race with this STPR win.

While Robby Gordon going off first in Saturday's 45'h running of the Tecate Score 2013 Baja 500, the next three drivers on the course and seven of the top 10 will be running on BFGoodrich desert racing tires. Team BFGoodrich members Bryce Menzies (3rd), Rob MacCachren (14th) and Dan McMillin (21 ") lead a contingent of 30 racers on the tires that have won more races in Baja than any other tire -BFGoodrich Baja T / A KR and BFGoodrich T/ A KRT. Vildosola and McMillin Bring Family Affair to Baja -Two veteran desert racing families look to put their winning heritage to the test at the 45'h running of the Tecate Score Baja 500 in Mexico this weekend. Following mixed qualifying efforts, both families spoke today about their efforts and plans to conquer the toughest terrain in desert racing·on the 501 mile course. Gus and his son Tavo Vildosola, who currently lead the SCORE Desert Series points standings with their win at the San Felipe. 250, discussed their disappointing qualifying. "We had some great pre-running and no so great qualifying efforts," said Gus. Tavo added, "I didn't do myself any favors by doing some victory donuts before the end of the race. It was further back than we expected, but last year we started back there last year so we'll see. It will be a challenge with the new course." The Vildosola family will be one of 30 Trophy Truck teams on BFGoodrich Tires looking to bring the tire maker its 30'h Baja victory. The Vildosola's have the honor of being the first Mexican family to win the Baja 1000 in 2010, the same year they placed second in the Baja 500. Another family with a long successful history in the Baja peninsula is the McMillin family. Brothers Daniel and Luke McMillin will take to the sands and silt beds on Saturday dueling against each other and the terrain looking for their first Baja 500 win. The McMillin's captured the 2010 SCORE Baja 500, the last time someone NOT named Bryce Menzies captured the victory. Luke, who will team with Mark Weyhrich, will start 15th in h-i.s first ever Trophy Truck race in Baja. "This being my first run in Trophy Trucks and any trucks here it will be a learning experience. We had a good qualifying run and even surprised myself. We'll look for a good clean run with a great car and great group of guys." Luke won the Class 1 category in last year's Baja 500 as well as in 2011 and climbs a category to the Trophy Trucks this year. Meanwhile, Team BFGoodrich Member Daniel will run with Chuck Hovey and start 21st. Dan joins fellow Team BFGoodrich members Bryce Menzies and Rob MacCachren in the field for the 2013 Baja 500. Dan placed fourth in last year's race and commented on the team's challenge ahead, "The course is going to be a challenge. The desert is hot and rocky. We are looking forward to it. We've got BFGoodrich Tires, obviously the best shoes to go fast out there." Roeseler Looks To Add to Record Wins -Larry Roeseler will captain the Terrible Herbst No. 19 Trophy Truck with Tim Herbst and look to add to his incredible 16 career wins in Baja Saturday at the 45'h running of the Tecate Score Baja 500. The team of Roeseler and Herbst qualified 11th and Roeseler discussed c;hallenges that lay ahead. "I can't explain to those who haven't been out there how challenging it is. It's the ultimate test of man and machine." "It's a great course - I love it. With some old stuff and new stuff," added Roeseler. "With more than 30 Trophy 'Trucks we really saw the level of talent in qualifying." Roeseler last won in the Trophy Truck division in 2003. The Terrible Herbst team will start other strong teams including Jesse Jones, the Weyhrich teams, Rob MacCachren and the Vildosola team.

Team BFGoodrich member Rob MacCachren led a pack of drivers that included Sheldon Creed and Steven Greinke claiming wins in their respective classes. Racers on BFGoodrich Tires captured six Optima Fastest Lap awards out of the total eight races on the weekend. The long and high jumps that Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park is known for played a key role in passing and needed toughness of trucks and tires to withstand the door-to-door action as well as the impact and hard turning created at the track. MacCachren followed up a strong second place finish in the Pro 2 class on Saturday with a dominating performance in the same class Sunday. Taking over the lead on the very first turn, MacCachren, in his No. 21 Rockstar Energy Drink/Makita Power Tools Ford, led from start to finish, being undaunted by multiple restarts including a green-white-checkered finish to the line. He drove away from the field several times throughout the 16 lap race for his second win and fifth podium in six runs on the season. MacCachren also fini;hed second in the Pro 4 race on-Sunday while running on BFGoodrich Mud Terrain T/AKR tires. "The BFGoodrich Tires have given us an advantage this year," commented MacCachren after the race weekend. "The dedication of the tire engineers has show up in the results column. The tire has definitely helped our Pro 2 and Pro 4 get to the podium. My Pro 2 was really hooked up this weekend and felt like the tire was trying to lift the inside front tire off the ground exiting the corners." Also on the victory platform was the 15-year old Creed who was equally dominant in his Pro Lite class on Saturday, turning the fastest qualifying and checking out from the field during the race which he also led from start to finish. He followed that up Sunday with a strong second place run where he made a hard charge and ran the fastest lap of the contest on the last lap to nearly catch eventual winner R.J. Anderson. Greinke, meanwhile, took the checkers, his second on the year, in the Pro Buggy class on Saturday and nearly pulled a sweep when he ran a close second in the class on Sunday: On Saturday, Greinke got a good run on Bradley Morris and flew off the first turn jump, cutting it inside on the turn and took a lead he would never relinquish. John Fitzgerald ran a solid race to place third, also on BFGoodrich Tires to round out the podium. "A strong weekend for BFGoodrich Tires," said Peter Calhoun, Motorsports Manager for BFGoodrich Tires. "Three wins, eight podiums and fastest lap times in multiple classes makes a statement. Our engineering and support crews are putting out tremendous effort to give racers the tire performance they need to run up front." Dusty Times ·June 2013 Page 15

lJ\.lc:!C: JJRD PHILIPS LED RALLY ARGENTINA Loeb/Citroen overall By Martin Holmes Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena took their bow and re-tired from world championship gravel road rallying in style when they took their Citroen to their eighth successive WRC win in Rally Argentina, fighting off a determined but troubled attack from the faster Volkswa-gen cars. Loeb was in classic style, capitalising on the prob-lems of his rivals, minimising the errors of his own making, winning just two stages against the VW team's ten. Sebastien Ogier settled for second place having led the rally in the early stages. M-Sport driver Mads Ostberg scored an early fast-est stage time when running first·car on the road but then hit a rock in the road and stopped for the rest of the day. Ostberg's M-Sport teammate Evgeniy Novikov speeded up until he was in third place, only finally losing his podium position when VW driver Jari-Matti Latvala recovered after a puncture securing 2-3 podium for the team. Ford Fiesta RRC driver Abdulaziz Al-Kuwari won the WRC 2 category, finishing over 13 minutes in front of the Mitsubishi of Production Car Cup winner Nicolas Fuchs. This year's Rally Argentina, fifth round of the 2013 WRC, was another classic South American world champion-ship event albeit with a shorter route and a time frame format which ran 24 hours earlier in the week than usual. The event ran Wednesday to Saturday, finishing one day earlier than in previous years, to allow the event to start unusually on a· Wednesday, which this year was a public holiday, May 1st. The Saturday finish meant that any end of ev·ent results dramas would cause no difficulties with European media deadlines! Compared with last year, almost 100km of the total special stage length had been taken off the route, and the total competi-tive distance for this all gravel rally was scheduled at 407km. The total number of individual stage venues had been reduced from ten to seven with 14 stages compared with 18 in 2012. Six of the stage venues were at least 40km long or thereabouts. The emphasis continued to be on long stages, the average stage length (including the two short superspecials) was 29km. . The big excitement was that Sebastien Loeb was present on the penultimate occasion on which he planned to enter a WRC event, before his cel-ebrated retirement from ral-lying at his home event at the end of September. Loeb told an Photos: Maurice Selden interviewer that he chose Rally Argentina because he wanted to do a gravel round before Rally France and Argentina is a "good rally for him" (unbeaten on the seven previous occasions he had started the rally) and for the car sales market for Citroen. The big discussion leading up to the event was the virtual lack of top level Argentine drivers, said to be a casualty of a conflict of interests between the WRC and the promoters of the national championship series. The only top Argentina drivers compet-ing on the rally were Marcos Ligato, as a Production Car driver .in the WRC2 category, and Gabriele Pozzo who was given a late entry on a non-manufacturer points scoring basis. Pozzo originally planned to be competing in a Mini WRC but this was ultimately changed to a Fiesta·WRC. New to the WRC2 series was to be the Paraguayan driver Di-ego Dominguez in his Mitsubi-shi Lancer Evo R4 but he had to withdraw through illness. Diego had won the 2012 Para-guayan Trans .Chaco Rally in a Kia Rio Maxi Rally car but Maxi Rally cars are not admitted into the WRC2 series. Protasov brought his usual R4 specifica-tion Subaru before his planned move to a Fiesta RRC for the Gabriel Pozzo and Daniel Stillo drove their Ford Fiesta RS to an 11th overall finish in Argentina, seen here getting their free car wash. rest of the season.

Citroen however all used five hards. While at Ford Ostberg had five hards, Neuville six softs and Novikov five softs. The second loop was a rerun of the same two stage venues. During the day the temperatures were rising. Sor-do was five minutes late leav-ing service. Shortly after the start of stage four, fifth placed Ostberg stopped. He hit a rock in the road which sheered a bolt securing the steering arm and damaged a driveshaft, immobilising the car. This elevated Andreas Mikkelsen, and Novikov climbed to sixth. Prokop started to gain some confidence with his Michelins. Oliveira went off the road right after the start of the stage and lost a wheel. Citroen drivers were also not happy. Hirvonen found the tracks more slippery than expected and made a few mistakes, enough to let Loeb into second place, but Loeb was upset as well. "We took hard tyres and were told it would be completely dry. Near the end of the stage it started to rain!" Sordo also found the conditions extremely tricky. VW started to be happy as their team had correctly forecast the weather. As the weather got progres-sively more gloomy and the clouds descended over the hills, the rerun of the 51km stage brought more drama. Kosciusz-ko went off the road and lost a wheel, eighth placed Pozzo lost five minutes with powersteering trouble and then right before the finish of the stage ninth place Prokop rolled his car and lost around a half minute. Mik-kelsen felt he had eased off too much in order to save his tyres as this had let Novikov edge past him into fifth place, the top Ford driver. Hirvonen was less fazed by the unexpectedly tricky surfaces but his hopes of retrieving second place from his teammate Loeb were thwarted by a misting windscreen. Lat-vala held on to fourth place but lost around ten seconds when his handbrake broke again near the end of the stage. Of the five stages held, Ogier had been fast-est on all except stage 3, which was when he was baulked by Sordo's slow-running Citroen. Sordo had a good explanation as to why he had crashed. His codriver, Carlos Del Barrio, kept having his door on the car flying open. He did his best to stop that happening. But it dis-tracted him when reading the pace notes. In WRC2 category the rally immediately lost Lorenzo Ber-telli with an engine problem on the drive up to the first stage of the day. The WRC2 cars were sent off at one-minute inter-vals, and before 20km the RRC Ford of Abdulaziz Al Kuwari had caught up with the Subaru R4 of Yuriy Protasov, but Al Kuwari was still the quickest car in the category.. Marcos Ligato stopped on the first stage with a broken rear suspension arm. Ricardo Trivino and Ar-min Kremer both had serious brake problems, Kremers' with a broken fluid pipe. By th.e midday service halt Al Kuwa,i was nearly one minute ahead of the Mitsubishis of Nicolas Fuchs and over two minutes ahead of Trivino. During the second run of the stages Al Ku-wari continued to make fastest time on every stage, and when Fuchs broke both his rear shock absorbers Al Kuwari's lead in-creased to over four minutes. Al Kuwari, "I really slowed down, I was now braking earlier and earlier for every bend." He now headed Protasov, who had been troubled by brake prob-lems. Non championship Para-guayan driver Gustavo Saba, who had been leading Class 2 in his Skoda, lost a rear wheel in the final stage of the day. Alonso was delayed after a roll.

cal privateers, all the remaining 30 crews were in action again including the two Paraguayan S2000s of Gustavo Saba, who managed to repair a broken rear suspension on his Skoda and drive back to VCP, and Miguel Zaldivar, who had stopped when he broke a wheel on his Fiesta and also. lost a wheel. The World Rally Cars were running at two minute inter-vals and the WRC2 and others every one minute. Volkswagen looked really strong with Ogier more than a quarter minute ahead of the pursuing Citroens of Loeb and Sordo, with Latvala not far behind in support. As the morning progressed, how-ever, chinks were beginning to show in the mighty Volkswagen armour. First casualty of the morn-ing was the Mini of Kosciuszko which stopped reportedly with suspension failure shortly into the first special stage, leaving Ostberg first car on the road. Ostberg, "Surprisingly rough conditions this morning, being first car is not so bad, anyway we are on schedule to catch Pro-kop, but beyond that the others are out of reach for us." Sordo, was lying tenth overall, had more trouble when his Citroen suffered from the water crossing allowing Pozzo momentarily got back to tenth. Conditions were tricky, if it was not sudden low sun light it was sudden mud. Neuville said it was no time to take risks. Latvala had a couple of little mistakes: Hirvonen two bigger moments. Loeb slid off the road momentarily and even the great Ogier said it was difficult to keep up the speed. The second stage of the loop (stage 7) was where it all changed. Ostberg, first car on the road, was to be fastest, scor-ing Ford's first and only scratch time of the rally. Latvala admit-ted losing time being careful in foggy stretches. Hirvonen had another lucky moment when he touched a rock and the damage was restricted to a tyre slipping off the rim. Loeb slid off the r·oad for a second time ("in some places you suddenly lost all grip"). Then Ogier under-steered off the road on a long slow bend, having to reverse and lost over 40 seconds, which dropped him to third, behind the two Citroens. Ogier, "My handbrake broke, so I did not have the usual opportunity to avoid going off the road." Mik-kelsen had to ease in his chase of Novikov when the tread on his tyres started to disintegrate but Novikov was pushing to pro-tect his position. Anyway Loeb was now leading the rally, 8.9 seconds in front of Hirvonen with Ogier 26.3 second behind in third. As the sun came out, it was a beautiful, dry and sunny autumn afternoon in Argen-tina, but the drying condi-tions made the early runners, like Ostberg, fearful that later runners would have the advan-tage. They should have done, but Ostberg still made second best fastest time on the high-speed second stage in the loop, where he had been fastest in the morning. He had now climbed up to eighth place at the expense of Prokop, and when Mikkelsen stopped after Page 18 , f / ' the first stage of the afternoon loop on the road section with suspension damage, he closed up to seventh. At the front Loeb made fastest time on both stages in the loop whi.le Ogier lost more ground with a front right puncture·6km or so from the end of the first stage. He had set off after Loeb with a vengeance, split times showing he gained 3 seconds on the first 13km of the stage, and in the end lost only 3.4 seconds to the leader. Hirvonen had a bad time, firstly having a puncture which he had to drive on for 20km through the first stage, with the tyre exploding 5km from the end, and this safely let Ogier up to second place. Then came the final normal stage of the afternoon where there was a lot of drama. Latv-ala flew over a crest and landed on a rock which immediately punctured a tyre and he had to stop to change the wheel los-ing less than two minutes ("We did something well, at last!"). Hirvonen's car just stopped in the stage with an electronic problem, and he lost around six minutes. These incidents let Novikov up into third place overall, passing Latvala while Hirvonen dropped down to sixth. With Mikkelsen absent, Neuville immediately eased his pace, for safety. Ogier also eased his pace when he heard about Hirvonen's trouble. By the midday service Al Ku-wari was well over eight minutes ahead in WRC2, with Fuchs once again in second place, and leading the Production Car category, after both Protasov and Trivino stopped after the initial water crossing in the first stage of the day. Ligato was back in action, enjoying the points he would earn sim-ply by finishing the rally, now running behind Kremer (who was baulked for 1km by Saba's Skoda) and Alonso, with Bertel-Ii running sixth and last. In the second loop, Kremer stopped on stage 9 and Ligato got ahead of Alonso, with Bertelli plough-ing on in fifth place. Betelli did not contest the sperspecial. Day 3 Kosciuszko was unable to line up for the third day as the damage to his car was too se-vere for immediate repair. The WRC2 driver Lorenzo Bertelli also did not restart, because of continued engine trouble, so 28 cars left for the final loop of the route, the journey over to Mina Clavero. It was a beautiful morning, hundreds of thoµsands of spectators all over the hills and it:i front of them two major battles. Firstly, as Novikov defended his third place from Latvala who was charging hard for the podium.

For the others it was a matter of survival, and saving their tyres for the Power Stage. The two stage venues in the loop were true Rally Argentina classics. The first venue was the uphill Giulio Cesare stage which climbs from Mina Clave-ro into the mountains. The second was the El Condor stage which descends once again. There was no service during the day and the same set of tyres had to last for all four stages, the last of which was the Power Stage. Both Volkswagen drivers and Thierry Neuville in QWRT car opted for six soft compound tyres, the other Ford and the Citroen drivers were content with five hard tyres. Prokop was still struggling to find the best setting. There was nervousness. Neuville saw smoke coming out of his engine. Novikov could not select the correct stage mode setting and did the stage in road mode. Latvala. who had been fastfSt on the night-time superspecial the evening before, set best time on both the morning stages. In the second run through Giulio Cesare, Latvala contin-ued his winning way and passed Novikov into third place and Sordo also got ahead of Prokop into eighth. Then it was the Power Stage. Latvala scored his fifth scratch time of the event, cementing the VW 2-3 result.

Wes Harbor let it all hang out and he raced to the win in the Class 10 action, Wes is seen here saving a bit of tire wear. The weather was warm and the racing was fast at VORRA's 2nd race of the 2013 season. Using the back-side of the designated four wheel drive area at the SVRA opens up the track to nearly a mile in length with speeds approaching 80 mph.

Ornellas went on for the moto and overall win with Graham 2nd and Meek 3rd. Dennis Jean took home the UTV top spot. Drama was unfolding in the pits for class ·10. After practice the two favorites were each having motor is-sues. In the 1022 pit Tyler Mort had a severe oil leak. They took the top of the motor apart hoping it was a cracked oil cooler block off plate. When that turned out to be okay they found a crack in the block. The class point leader going onto the race was out for the day. In the 1029 Wes Harbor pit they had similar issues threaten-ing their day. An internal oil leak revealed a broken piston ring and they thought they were done. That was until a crewman pulled the spark plug and used magnet to fish out all the broken pieces. With the motor run-ning and nothing to lose they decided to "run it hard until it blows up." Motors always run good right before they blow up and the Red Team Racing motor was running as well as it could and they were out to the early lead with Del Hardy (1214) and Brian Hewitt (1005) close behind. Hardy spun which dropped him to the back of the pack. Hewitt was now putting pres-sure on Harbor but once the class 1 entry of Ryan Sargent (159) caught the duo and got passed Hewitt the race was on to the checkers between Harbor and Sargent. At the finish Harbor stayed in front Page 22 by a very narrow margin for the win. Hewitt finished 2nd in class with Hardy 3rd. The 2nd class 10 moto was hole-shot by Del Hardy with Hewitt a strong 2nd and Harbor 3rd. Going into the east turn on the first lap though Hewitt went in a little too fast and rolled up on his side. It was a slow roll and by the time he got to the ignition switch to turn the engine off the car rolled back onto its wheels, so he grabbed a gear and continued after the pack. By mid race, Sargent in his class 1, was battling up front with Hardy who unfortunately broke a lap later and was out for the day. With Sargent now out front Harbor gave chase and came close at the flag but settled for 2nd in the heat but 1st in class 10. Hewitt finished right in the hunt too for 2nd in class. The final class 10 race was between Harbor and Hewitt with Sargent racing them for his own class. While chal-lenging Harbor for the lead Sargent went inside on the pit turn and broke a stub axle. Harbor went on for the moto as well as the overall win with Hewitt 2nd and Hardy 3rd. After qualifying in the top spot in Group T, Don Ger-man (801) was sure to be the favorite and starting on pole he was out with the early lead. Jake Povey (1402), Steve LaRoza (7204), Tim Stock-well (8069) and Jason Arnold (805) were close behind giv-ing chase. The racing was tight but the positions didn't change all the way to the checkers. In the ultra 4 class Jeremy Hengl (85) held off Dave Sch-neider (4471) for i:he moto win. Marcos Gomez (4486) was having engine issues and collected just one lap. The 2nd Group T moto was off to a barn buster start with Tim Stockwell taking the hole-shot with the pack fighting for position right behind. Trying to make it through turn 1 unscathed, LaRoza went wide and over the burm avoiding the other trucks. This moved Povey, German and Arnold up spots giving strong chase to Stock-well. The race went on this way for five laps until the white flag lap when German got by Povey, set his sights on Stockwell and made the pass for the moto win drop-ping Stockwell to 2nd, Povey 3rd and Arnold a very well earned 4th. In the ultra 4 class Schneider held off Hengl for the full 6 laps for the moto win. Moto 3 lined up as they finish in moto 2 so this put German and Povey on the front row to fight for the win. German got the early lead while Povey, Stockwell, Arnold, Medley and LaRoza all settled into position. On the last lap Medley clipped the front of one of the Ultra 4's sending him rolling. The rolled car occupants were okay and the race went on to the checkers with the results German, Povey, Stockwell, Arnold and LaRoza. The overall win went to German with Povey 2nd, Stockwell 3rd and Arnold 4th. In the Ultra 4 class Hengl had the early lead over Schneider but at the finish Schneider got around Hengl and scored the moto and ovei:all win.

l:mttet,RJ:!11985 LAUGHLIN DESERT CHALLENGE snook/ Arras overall By Jean Calvin Photos: Trackside Photo Frank Snook and Eric Anas leaped over the tough Nevada turf in their Raceco to not only win Class 1 but take the overall victory with a totally trouble free race. Class 1 was Raceco country at Laughlin as Ron Brant sailed nicely into third in Class 1, a clean sweep in class for the chassis brand. The second annual Laughlin Desert Challenge was a howling success in more than one way. Not only did the wind howl on race day, but the racers came in droves, 189 strong out of the 210 entries came to the start-ing line, up a good 50 from last year's entry. Obviously the com-bined points series is working to swell the car entries in the desert races. While Laughlin is growing like prairie grass in the spring, with a couple of new hotel/ casi-nos in operation since last year and condos sprouting up on the highway, there was still enough vacant land by the Colorado River between the Edgewater and Pioneer hotels for the tech and contingency business. It was party time for the afternoon into evening schedule on Friday, with Nissan supplying one of their famous circus tents for registra-tion, and the official T shirt, beer and booze sales. Outside the tent a mini midway sprang up next to contingency row. On sale were more T shirts, hats, foot long hot dogs, beer, almost everything in mobile booths. A band enter-tained and people danced on a portable dance floor. with a 1:30 to 7:30 p.m. schedule for the Friday rituals, it was busy all the time for the large turn out of con-tingency donors. The very crush of the big car entry enhanced the carnival atmosphere on a warm, sunny resort style day. But, as has been the norm this year, race day dawned cold, with overcast skies and rain clouds hovering over the Arizona hills across the river. At the start line, a mere stone's throw from the back door of the casinos, sprinkles fell as the cars started one every 15 seconds at 9 a.m. The sprinkles never got serious, and this was one desert race that could have used some water on the course. It was typical south-ern Nevada terrain, and the deep ruts got deeper, the soft sand was bottomless, and the dust .was thick. The hefty wind gusts helped in some areas, but made visibility worse in other/ion the course, wlfere half of the 55 mile route consisted of narrow trails This year there was no individ-ual sponsor for the race; rather the entire town of Laughlin, Ne-vada, eight casinos and a conve-nience store, got organized under their newly formed Chamber of Commerce and gave a great deal of support, both in manpower and money, to Walt Lott and the HORA staff. The race activ-ity was spread out allover town, and the hotels put on some very inexpensive room rates for the visitors. Laughlin's atmosphere is friendly, the meals are cheaper than one could buy the food for uncooked at a market, and the living is casual, with jeans OK in any establishment. With the nor-mal round the clock activity of a Nevada gambling mecca, plus the small western town atmosphere, the place is made to order as a host for an off road race. Jerry Penhall and Ron Gardner took over the points lead in the desert series with their second Class 2 win in a row in the Chenowth, taking the lead on the last lap. Page 28 June 2013. Running two seat Raceco in Class 1, Gregg Symonds and Jake Fogg took over second place in class on the final lap, and they had no mechanical woes either. through the heavy brush and some very skinny canyons. Ivan Stewart and his Toyota truck were first away as the Class ls revved up for the desert. Stewart blasted three quarters of the distance around the lap before the trans packed up in the modified pickup. The fix took nearly four hours, then Ivan did another good round, only to have more trans trouble on the third of the four laps required of all classes. Ivan ran out of time and retired. Among most' of the 20 Class 1 starters, however, the com-petition was fierce on the first lap, many running hard as if it was the only lap. Zinging off the fast lap of the day from his 18th starting spot, Jack Johnson whipped the Chenowth Mag-num around in a keen 1:15.08. But, Larry Ragland had a six cylinder Porsche in his Chapar-ral, and he was close at 1: 16.11, with fellow Arizona driver Larry Noel only six seconds behind him. Several more were less tha two minutes off the leading pace. Missing in action on round one were contenders Kirk Kontilis, broken axle, Chet Huffman and Al Arciero, both with drive train woes. On the second lap Johnson reportedly missed a turn and got stuck in a ditch. Larry Noel assumed the lead midway in the race, but only by a minute over Mark McMillin, again running his two seat Porsche powered Chenowth in Class 1. Fast run-ners on lap one, Tom Koch and Larry Ragland, were both re-ported down on course with axle and/ or trans trouble, and Kenny Kumme was missing too. Now in third on was Eric Arras in the Frank Snook Raceco, about four minutes behind McMillin. Jack Johnson~.made a come back dash, but the trans gave up and he parkecl Larry Noel lost the bolts out of a CV joint, and lost time in repairs on the third lap. Drive train failure was the story of the race. Much of the failure was induced by a virtual epidemic of roll overs, and some entries rolled more than once and still finished in the money. The high berms that developed made rolling a calculated risk if one was ·to pass the car ahead. On the third lap Mark McMillin broke a spindle and lost a couple of hours, and Frank Snook, now at the lielm of the McDonald's Rateco, was leading Class 1. The final round in the deep-ening ruts saw a traffic jam near the end of the course. Veteran Snook side hilled around the stuck cars, and, much to the surprise of the spectators, Frank Snook's yellow Raceco was the first car across the finish line ... they had been expecting a yellow two seater. Snook, with Arras do-ing the first two rounds, won the race overall, and it was the first time Frank has had an overall win since 1978 and the Califor-nia 400 at Barstow where he iron manned his Class 9 Hi Jumper for 330 miles to win over a 166 car field. As misfortune befell the early leaders, Gregg Symonds and Jake Fogg moved steadily up the chart and finished second in Class 1, seventh overall in a two seat Raceco minus one seat. They were nearly 24 minutes behind the overall winners. Ron Brant was third under the flag, about 11 minutes back, and Larry Noel salvaged fourth place, followed by Nick Nicholson and some time later, Mark McMillin. In all seven of the 20 finished the four laps within the ten hour time allowance, which was short time for some of the slower classes, if the entry had any trouble. The next morning it was an-nounced that Jack Johnson had moved from DNF status to dis-Marty Reider did the iron man bit at Laughlin, ran two laps without power steering, and still won Class 10 and also finished a remarkable second overall.

Tetrick/Randy Snyder, with a dozen more running in the next minute or so. Bobby and Tom Neth won the 1-2-1600 honors again in the Chenowth Magnum, taking the lead on the fourth and final round to get a good lead on the class points. Rob Tolleson drove his Mirage to third in Class 1-2-1600, and the rookie driver has just three races to his credit, and has a first, second and third in class. Only 15 Class 10s made the half way point, and Marty Reider had taken the lead, but only by 45 seconds over Buddy Harris. It was a tight dice, with Sourapas/ Richardson another three min-utes· back, Lundell just over a minute behind him, and Rob MacCachren was another minute and change behind. It was still close as the survivors headed out on the final lap, with Reider holding his lead of just over a minute on Harris. Unfortunately, Harris did not complete the lap. Hanging tough, with 55 miles to go, Dwight Lundell was about six Continued on page 30 qualification, and the reason stated was that his racer hit a checkpoint worker doing some, but not serious physical damage to the person. Class 2 was next off the line, a healthy group of 27, of which merely-seven would see the checkered flag. This started out as a real close dice, as Tom Martin led the first round with a swift 1:19.35, but it was a slim margin. Also in a Raceco, Jim Sumners did a 1:20.30, but Jim lost his trans on the second lap. Mike Goodwin was next with a quick 1:20.45, and a half dozen more were merely a minute or two out as the herd thundered off on the second lap. -Frank Ar-ciero had big troubles, rolling his Toyota pickup on its side on the first lap while attempting to pass, and then he had a five hour plus second lap, and then parked. Midway Mike Goodwin had a skinny lead in his Coca Cola Raceco, about, 1 1/ 4 minutes over Tom and Steve Martin. Cam Thieriot and Greg Lewin were holding third, less than five min-utes back. Moving up were Jerry Penhall and Ron Gardner, their Chenowth another minute back, closely followed by Bob Richey/ Tom Baker, Raceco. A full 16 completed two laps, but only ten managed three rounds in Class 2. The Martins gained back the lead on lap 3, and they were well on their way to the overall vic-tory. But, just a few miles from pay dirt their engine let go in a big way. At this point Mike Goodwin should have taken over the Class 2 lead, but he rolled the car instead, losing just enough time to lose the lead. Taking over first place on the final lap was the Parker winning team of Jerry Penhall and Ron Gardner, who were third overall as well, finishing ·with a flapping rear tire, which blew just 100 yards from the checkered flag. Good-win was back about 4 1/2 min-utes, fourth overall, and just two minutes ahead of Bob Veltri and Marty Vanzeyl, whose very con-sistent lap times brought them home third in class, fifth overall. Phoenix racer and car builder Jack Woods, with Don Bailey co-driving, took fourth in Class 2 in his own creation. Fifth went to Vic VanElla and Mel Tyree, the former terror of Class 9 in its heyday. Arriving seventh, Corky and Scott McMillin survived a broken spindle on the first lap to gain their finishing points. With 27 stormers on the line, Class 10 bid fair to be a barn burner, and so it was initially. From Norman, Oklahoma, Bud-dy Harris put his Chenowth Magnum out front on the first lap with a 1:23 flat, but, in with a 1:23.24 was Marty Reider, Raceco. Right in his dust was James Krumme, with a 1:23.30 in his Funco. Lying close in the 1:24 range were Dwight Lundell, Greg Aronson/Craig Watkins, Roger Mortenson/Russ Welch, Steve Sourapas/Dave Richard-son, Mark Manley, and Steve The turtle trophy at Laughlin went to the 1-2-1600 of Robby and Cindy Guevara, 18th in class and they finished with just 4 minutes and 4 seconds to spare. Rob Myerfy and Randy Jones finished second on time in Class 1-2-1600, but a course infraction penalty dropped their Bunderson to an official fourth. In their last ride In the Larry's VW Bug, Malcolm Vinje and Marie Hansen led three of the four laps by inches, and won Class 5 honors by a tight 11 minutes.

Rrst lap leaders in Class 5, Greg Heinrich and Jim Pope had a habit of rolling over, and they dropped to second in class after four laps. minutes off the pace. Virtually tied two more minutes back were Aronson/Watkins, Larry Bolin, and Sourapas/Richardson. After Frank Snook finished, it was some time before the Pen-hall/ Gardner car arrived, and right on the heels of the Che-nowth was Marty Reider in his Raceco, winning Class 10 hand-ily, although he lost the power steering midway in his solo drive. Marty also nailed a keen second overall in the race. Next to arrive, second on time as well, was the Raceco of Greg Aronson and Craig Watkins, powered by a FAT Rabbit engine, and they were more than eight minutes behind Reider. But the team, and also the Tetrick/Snyder car which did not finish, were both assessed an extra 15 minutes for failing to stop at a checkpoint. The action dropped the Aronson car to sixth in class. The penalty put solo driver Larry Bolin, Raceco, into second in Class IO, sixth overall, about 15 minutes behind the winner but only two minutes ahead of third placing Steve Sourapas/ Walker Evans roared to a tremendous win in Class 8, the Dodge never missed a beat, and Evans was definitely back on form at the rough Laughlin race. Jim Dizney, with Dave Richardson co-driving, had to work hard for his Class 9 victory in the Chenowth. It was a very close race among the 1200cc cars. After a visual battle for two laps, Mario Alesi had no mechanical trouble and romped home an easy winner in Class 7, making it two for two for his Nissan. Dave Richardson, Raceco. Dwight Lundell had a flat on the final lap a.nd finished on a bare and bent rear rim, but he was just three more minutes back in fourth. In another minute, Jerry and Bob Leighton were fifth, having lost time on the first lap. Mark Broneau had his troubles on the last lap, and his Raceco was seventh. Rob MacCachren was shoved off the course by a big truck on the final round, ending his race with a broken stub axle and much more damage to the Bunderson. Having trouble on the second lap, James Krumme came back to finish ninth, the final finisher out of the 27 that started. Next to leave was the biggest class in the race, 1-2-1600, com-bined as always in HDRA races. There were 32 star-ters, all, or so it seemed, running nose to tail on the narrow dusty trails. Jack Ramsay, Bunderson two seater, laid down the fast first lap of 1:27.08, showing graphi-cally that horsepower was not the whole story on the really rough Laughlin race course. J_erry Jef-Mike Nesmith and Randy Salmont had a good day in their GMC, had minor problems, but hung on to take a fine second place in Class 8. Going solo Mike McCrory was close, but a few minutes back at the flag, and he had to settle for second in Class 9 in his Hi Jumper. fries, Chenowth two seater, did a 1;28.42, and was in second. A whole bunch had 1:29 and change lap times, including, not necessarily in order, Bobby and Tom Neth, Chenowth single seater, Rob Myerly/Randy Jones, Bunderson single seater, Jim Greenway/Terry Smith, Raceco two seater, Richard Binder, two seater, Dave Mansker, Raceco single seater, and Doug Hovis, two seater. Things sorted out slightly at at half distance. Ramsay still led with another 1:27 lap, holding three minutes on Myerly/Jones, who had almost three minutes on the Neths. Most of the other hot lappers had trouble and dropped time, but 24 managed to go half way in the battle. After three laps Ramsay had a firm lead of 4 1/2 minutes over the Neths, who were nearly two minutes ahead of Myerly/Jones. But, on the final round, the Ramsay team, with Rick Mills co-driving, dropped ten minutes and had to replace a driver, and they dropped to third in class. Myerly and Jones finished just three minutes behind the Neth brothers, but they got a 15 minute penalty for not stop-ping at a checkpoint, and they fell to fourth in class. This put Jack Ramsay officially in second place, merely eight minutes be-hind the winning Chenowth of Bobby and Tom Neth. Driving a very steady race, young Rob Tolleson was third, going solo in his single seat Mirage. With plen-ty of woes, Jim Greenway and Terry Smith were fifth, followed by Richard Binder. A hefty 18 of the 32 finished the four laps, including absolutely last overall, 79th, Robby and Cindy Guevara, who had just four minutes left on time when their Hi Jumper, finished. A good field of eleven started in Class 5, and this was a vi-sual battle between four Bugs all around the course. Check the times! On the first lap Greg Heinrich/Jim Pope recorded a 1:30.13, Malcolm Vinje/ Mark Hansen did a 1:30.25, Pete Sohren/Frank Evans nailed a 1:30.35, and Hartmut and Wolfram Klawit:ter zipped off a 1:31.05, while Christopher NeiVJerry Miller were in with a 1:33.28 in the Ghia Bug. The war continued to mid dis-tance where Vinj~/Hansen had nearly two minutes on Sohren/ Evans, who were two minutes ahead of the Klawitters, who were a minute ahead of Hein-rich/Pope. The close dicing took its toll, and the Klawitters van-ished, Sohren/ Evans lost a few minutes and then failed to finish the last lap, while Neil and Miller had almost two hours down time Class 10 was another hat trick for Raceco. Larry Bolin went solo to a Soaring out of one of a hundred on course ditches, Steve Sourapas and Phoenix driver Dwight Lundell had a few problems in his Dirtrix, finished keen second in class, sixth overall in a tight dice on the.last lap. Dave Richardson come in a very close third in Class 10, eighth overall. on a bare rear rim, but he also finished fourth in Class 10, ninth overall. Page 30 June 2013 Dusty Times

on the third round. Heinrich and Pope reportedly rolled at least twice, and heading into the final lap, Vinje/Hansen led Heinrich and Pope by just under ten minutes. At the flag Malcolm Vinje and Mark Hansen won Class 5 by just over ten minutes from Heinrich and Pope. Moving into third spot with a steady drive were James and David Plum in a plain, steel grey Bug. Neil and Miller recov-ered to finish with about 17 min-utes left on the time allowance, gaining fourth and last finish spot in Class 5. There were ten big trucks in Class 8, but it was Walker Evans benefit day at Laughlin. Walker, wiJh his brother Paulden riding shotgun, served notice he was serious on the first lap with a 1:28.07 time. Evans never looked back, and he won Class 8 by 40 minutes in the Dodge, after ·cool-ing it a bit on the final lap. The main contenders all had some troubles. Steve Kelley rolled his GMC on the first lap, doing great damage, as he hit a berm while trying to pass a slower car. Dave Shoppe had myriad woes, never did get up to full speed, but he finished third in the Ford. Mike Nesmith and Randy Salmont drove to fine lap times and kept their GMC together to take second place. Bill Howard and Richard Nelson were fourth in their Chevy, while Vin Fugate and Merlin Johnson were fifth, and the last Class 8 finisher, driv-ing a Ford. Class 7 seems locked into be-ing a trio each race, and so it was at Laughlin. On hand were Ma-rio Alesi/Harry Sladwick, Nis-san, Manny and Tudy Esguerra, Ford Ranger, and Brent Smith and Mike George, Ford Ranger. Alesi and Esguerra put on a fan-tastic show for two laps, running in sight of each other, and they finished the first lap nose to tail with Esguerra holding a slim, l 1/2 second lead. Midway it was Alesi up front by a mere 32 sec-onds, and Brent Smith was fixing things on course. The Esguerra Ranger slowed with clutch trouble on lap 3, and Alesi did not slow his pace. Ma-rio finished an easy first in class and a fine 19th overall. Manny lost the clutch completely on the last lap, and he salvaged second, an hour and ten minutes later. Smith and George also finished, over another hour back for a 100 percent finish in the modified mini truck class. A half dozen Class 9, 1200cc cars took to the course next, and they had a very close race, and four finished the entire course. The first lap leader was the Hi Jumper ofJeffWatson and Butch Darling, with just about a min-ute in hand over Jim Dizney, Chenowth. Dave and John Mc-Donough were third, about three minutes back in the same Funco that took their sister Kelly to the HDRA Class 9 title last season. Midway Watson/Darling maintained a slim lead of less than three minutes over Dizney. Solo driver Mike McCrory inched past the MCDonoughs, into second by a minute, and Larry and John Webster were just another two minutes back. After three rounds Watson/Darling had a cushion of over eight min-utes on Dizney, who was only 20 seconds ahead of McCrory, and Dusty Times Rod Hall and Jim Fricker did their trick again, winning Class 4, but their Dodge did not take the lead until the third round at Laughlin.

Class 7S was down to eight starters at Laughlin, many still licking their wounds ffom Parker evidently_ A new entry in this class was the slick new Ford Ranger of Scott Douglas, whose secret weapon was Frank Ves-sels as the starting driver. The first lap was nearly as tight as it had been in Class 7. 1984 class champ Spencer Low/Paul Delang, Nissan, got the fast lap at 1:35.55, but Vessels was close at 1:36.11, but his Ranger didn't go much farther. Third after one round was the Ranger of Paul and Dave Simon, with a 1:39.05, but it had problems on the next lap. Willie Valdez had his Ranger in fourth, another three minutes back. Henry Anas and his son Eric did a great job in the rough run and they squeaked out their second consecutive win in 5-1600 class by less than two minutes. . Midway, Low, with a 1 :39 second lap had a strong, almost nine minute lead over Valdez, and the Simons were down to third but still well ahead of the field. Low hit another truck and did some damage on the next lap, and Valdez was down changing a transmission. So, de-spite sundry electrical problems, Spencer Low brought the Nissan in for the Class 7S victory. With a fresh trans, Valdez made up nearly half an hour on the final lap, but he had to settle for sec-ond place this race, about seven minutes behind Low. Low had to be towed from the finish area, since his alternator was broken in half. Simon and Simon were. strong in third place, merely 19 minutes behind Valdez. John Cabe/Neal Linebarger snagged fourth in a Toyota, and Jim Travis/Ron League were fifth Gene and Kirby Hightower are having a great season in the Jeep CJ-7. The Class 3 Parker winners took a fine second at Laughlin. -in another Toyota, the final 7S finisher. The last of the big entry class-es, at 15 on the line, was 5-1600. Despite the size of the entry, it soon turned into a two Bug race. The torn up terrain was truly tough on this class, but seven of them covered all four laps, and all but three managed at least one lap. Henry Arras set a hot pace on lap 1, doing a keen 1:37.59, but Mike Lesle was right in his wake, only 23 seconds be-hind. Nearest to them then were several Bugs in the mid 1 :40s. Arras continued to lead, and had a seven minute margin midway, when he got out and handed over to his son Eric, who had just de-barked from the eventual overall winning Raceco. With the driver change, it was close after three laps with the Arras Bug one even minute ahead of Lesle, as the pair left the field well behind at this point. Arras picked up another 50 seconds on the last lap to win this tight dice over Mike Lesle by a slender 1 minute, 51 seconds. About 35 minutes behind, Mike and Roy Taylor had very consistent lap times and were strong in third, about 13 minutes ahead of Jeff Bolha and Rick Lyneis, who were Mike Leste was oh so close all four laps in his 5-1600, scarcely out of the leaders sight all day, but Leste had to be content with second place.

Class 6 was another war of attrition, with both entries in trouble. Dale Draves and David Hutchins won the honors in an AMC Hornet. While Mark Broneau drove alone to seventh in Class 10, his pilot through the contingency line turned heads; the handsome fellow is named Crash. Two Jeep Cherokee·s were on tap in Class 12, but the Jason Myers/Don Adams unit led Tom Peltier by nearly an hour on the first lap. Peltier's troubles were termin~l, and he only covered two laps. Jason Myers went on and did consis-tent lap times to gain a four lap finish, making it two wins for two entries at Laughlin for the Cherokee team. .. ,, There was another pair in Class 6, the regular entry, Larry Schwacofer and Sid Spradling in the old Chevrolet, and Dale Draves and David Hutchins in a 173 AMC Hornet, a new car by Class 6 standards. Schwacofer had a 50 minute lead on the first lap, but then he began snapping axles. Draves had troubles too, a five hour second lap, b'ut he and the Hornet won Class 6 with two laps done almost two hours faster than the Chevy ls two laps. Running in a streak of bad luck, Rob MacCachran was well among the Class 10 leaders here, but an accident put him down and out on the lap. Checkpoint 2 was remote, but well signed, obviously. Here John Kaiser's good looking new Class 2 creation gets a chit, but the car finished just one lap. Dusty Times disappointed racers due to the time penalties, especially two teams who were each dropped out of second place in their class. Additionally, the two seat team headed by Tim Kennedy was disqualified for driving through a couple of checkpoints with a co-driver without a helmet. Oddly enough, the same car missed its start time by a few minutes, be-cause the rider did not have his belt; fastened when the car came to the green flag area. Parker winner in Class 7 4 x 4, G. T.

Overall Laughlin presented a fine event, with 79 of the 189 starters finishing the course, more than many mid race esti-mates. Computer scoring math worked its wonders again, and no one had to sit up all night in order to supply the traditional HDRA lap by lap scores on Sun-day morning. Hopefully, the big-ger entries at the first two desert series races will continue into the spring and summer, and bring big entries to the next two events promoted by Score in Lucerne Valley, CA and Ensenada, Baja California in Mexico. l:J;!:!5!,R..f!J Five of the limited Score Chal-lenge buggies tried to beat the rugged course at Laughlin, but only one covered all four laps. Parker winner Russ Winkler, with Bobby Tracy co-driving the Sandhawk, was out front by 11 minutes over Bob Sav-age and his T Mag on the first lap, and Danny Oliver and Dan Hook were only another minute behind. Most of the cars had troubles, and midway Winkler and Tracy had a huge, 36 minute lead over Savage, who had some 18 minutes on the Oliver car. Rod Everett and Tom Barnett were hours back, and gave it up after three laps. Winkler and Tracy increased their lead after three laps, hold-ing 40 minutes on Savage, but neither their car or Oliver's fin-ished the final lap. Although it took an extra 20 minutes, the Savage machine did cover all four rounds for the victory. winner Giti Gowland, with Stan Houghton, plugged along and almost made four laps. They missed the ten hour time limit on the last lap by just ten seconds at the flag, but .they still won their class. It was bright and sunny again on Sunday for the awards, but there were some long faces and Last off the line were the pair of Toyotas in Class 7 4 x 4. Fred Wright and John Pitne had .a 19 minute lead after one lap, but that was all the did. Parker Even winners have their problems, but Ron Gardner got to impound this way, winning Class 2 and getting congrats here from Jerry Penhall. .s i II. • I ...

The Off-Road Motor-sports Hall of Fame An-nounces the 2013 Class of Inductees Reno, Nev. (May 23, 2013) -The Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame (ORMHOF) announced today the 2013 Class of Inductees. The late Larry Bergquist, Bob Chan-dler, Frank DeAngelo, Jerry Herbst and Bob "The Weath-erman" Steinberger will have their names added to the venerable list of those who have committed their lives to the off-road community. The five inductees' exten-sive accomplishments cover a number of arenas in the sport including off-road rac-ing, pioneers of the industry and for the first time: spe-cial achievement. Their legacies will be cel-ebrated and displayed for the public in Gallery Four within the famed National Automobile Museum -the Harrah Collection -located in Reno, Nev. They join names synonymous with the sport including Parnelli Jones, Malcolm Smith, Steve McQueen, James Garner, Walker Evans, Rod Hall as well as many others who have worked tirelessly be-hind the scenes making the sport prosper and grow. The induction class was chosen by a sixteen member voting panel on the basis of significant contribution to off-road motorsports beyond wins and sport affiliation. All nominees must have at least fifteen years of experi-ence and involvement and have built, designed, driven, maintained, owned, pre-pared, piloted, promoted, ridden an off-road vehicle or supported the off-road industry. They are charac-terized by their desire to win, the mastery of their field and their courage to innovate. Each Inductee has made a significant contribu-tion to off-road motorsports in at least one of the follow-irig aspects: Business, His-. tory, Design, Engineering, Prestige of the Sport, and/or Growth of the Sport. The Inductees will be honored Friday, October 4th in conjunction with the Lu-cas Oil Off-Road Expo in Po-mona, California.

The Buzzard.s MC would go on to become one of the most suc-cessful motorcycle clubs, or-ganizing and promoting well over 25 Hare Scrambles and Hare & the Hounds, includ-ing several AMA sanctioned California State Champion-ship Hare Scrambles. Larry enjoyed not only. racing, but acting as an integral part of races the Buzzards organized. He served all duties, from registration to smoke bomb duty, danger marking to flagman. Larry led many clean up teams to insure the desert was just as clean after the race as it was before. Bergquist was in the legendary movie "On Any Sunday" and featured in "1968 Mexican 1000", which was filmed for ABC's Wide World of Sports. Larry was also inducted into the Trail-blazers Hall of Fame in 2013. Bob Chandler is. known to many as the creator of the entire monster truck indus-try. Chandler's single-most notable gift to the off-road world was his creation of Big-foot # 1, which is thought to be the world's introduction to monster trucks. Bob's contributions to the off-road community continued on when he helped develop one of the most important safety innovations, the Re-mote Ignition Interrupter, which is an industry stan-dard today. His success ex-tended beyond the track, as Chandler and his team were devoted to their fans and acted as bringers of good-will to children's hospitals, charity events, Make-A-Wish visits, and the like. His acts of kindness and devotion . to making the sport a safer place for drivers and specta-tors makes Bob Chandler an honorable n ame to add to the Hall of Fame. Frank DeAngelo is the first person to be inducted into ORMHOF under the Special Achievement cat-egory. Frank's involvement of desert and short course racing has lasted 33 years and counting. Beginning as a truck driver providing tire service to race teams on site, Frank worked his way up the ladder to become one of the most trusted and respected names in the off-road indus-try. Frank quickly developed the insight to view wh~t was good for the sport and its growth, becoming one of the industry's strongest, longest advocates of off-road motor-sports. DeAngelo helped many people and organi-zations pioneer their way through m any years of suc-cess, leaving a positive and lasting mark on everyone in his path. Frank's many years of experience in m ar-keting, promoting, problem solving and advice giving has made him an irreplace-a-ble component to the off-road world. June 2013 Jerry Herbst could sim-ply be categorized by his achievements in terms of business, Las Vegas and the famous, gas-slinging cari-cature logo that represents his nickname "the best bad guy of. the West". Yet that is only a one-dimensional view of the impact Jerry has had on desert racing. As the founder, backer and head cheerleader of Herbst Motorsports, Jerry and his team have been a key component to the develop-ment and ultimate success of important innovations to the BFGoodrich Project tire and helped engineer new drive train technology that enabled the use of 37", 39" and 42" tires. Along with pioneering the sport, Herbst Motorsports led by Jerry, has dominated the SCORE and Best in the Des-ert ract tracks with 23 Class 1 event victories, 11 trophy truck event victories and 6 consecutive Class 1 cham-pionship victories, and this only names a few. Jerry's legacy has continued with his three sons, all of whom share their father's passion for surpassing the competi-tion and doing whatever it takes to continue the growth of off-road racing. Bob "the Weath-erman" Steinberger is known as the voice of des-ert racing. Bob entered the off-road world in 1972, lea~ing his first race frus-trated and concerned be-cause there was no ~ommu-nication between the race car and pits. Bob suggested two way radios be put into the race car and pit; radio communication has been part of off-road racing ever since. The Weatherman drives to the top of the highest mountain and sits by himself for the entire race so every racer stays in contact with his team and checkpoint attendants and emergency crews are always kept up to date. He is always making sure no driver is left behind. Steinberger's involvement with off-road motorsports has extended beyond the radio. He has been a long time member of C.O.R.V.A. and was presi-dent of F.A .I.R. (First As-socia_tion of Independent Racers) for five years, a race team owner, pit crew mem-ber, racer and volunteers to do race car retrieval. It is clear the Weatherman has spent the last 40 years living his passion, making desert racing a safer sport. Dusty Times

Blueribbon coalition, -Inc. Reno Expo Raises Righteous Donation For Brc Using a Silent Auction at a big multi-function show, and a Mild to Wild Trail Ride in the Reno, NV, area, the awe-some folks at Lockett Shows (Al and Shirley Lockett, and crew) raised $2000 to support BlueRibbon Coalition, cham-pions of responsible outdoor recreation. The Reno Expo is held ev-ery year at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center and is pro-duced by L.ockett Shows. Not just one show, but four great shows, all in one location. The Expo includes the Reno Off-Road Motorsports Expo, Reno Boat & Recreation, Trav-el & Vacation Show, Reno Spring Home & Garden Show, and the Reno Pet Show and Pug Parade. Producing shows since 1967, Al Lockett is no stranger to putting on an entertaining event. "Adding our support to the BlueRibbon Coalition with our shows is essential in these days to ensure we all have a place to enjoy the great outdoors," said Al. "Thank goodness for our local off-road clubs like the Sierra Stomp-ers," continued Al, "who or-chestrated and managed the successful Silent Auction this year for us." Vendors and manufactur-ers from all over donated to the Silent Auction to support BRC, with folks like 4Wheel Parts, MetalCloak, SmittyBilt, and many local businesses add-ing to the goodie pile. Daina and Matt Smith from the Si-erra Stompers 4x4 Club put the Silent Auction together and spent most of the week-end staffing the booth helping folks make bids and support the cause. "We can't imagine not sup-porting our organized· recre-ation groups," said Daina. "Our outdoor fun depends on groups like the BlueRibbon Coalition fighting for our con-tinued access!" Page 36 BRC Ambassador Del Al-bright attended the Expo with Stacie, his wife, and they were hugely impressed with the show and the clubs support-ing landuse and access. "One minute you can watch a fish-ing demonstration, sniff a new potting soil, then mosey over to discuss access roads to the backcountry with several lo-cal 4x4 clubs," said Del. "It's quite a multi-function show and I was extremely impressed with the turnout and fun had by all." Last year, through the com-bined effort of the donors, bidders and volunteers, the Expo was able to raise $1,500. This year t_hey hit the $2000 mark! Stay tuned for the dates for next year's Expo. They ask businesses to consider making a donation of merchandise to be auctioned off during this event. Donations could represent hundreds of dol-lars in auction funds raised. Al added, "By donating mer-chandise, you'll be making a contribution that will help the BlueRibbon Coalition contin-ue its mission to represent the interests of responsible recre-ationist across the country." Learn more and be part of next year's efforts at http:// You can contact Lockett Shows at:Email: PO BOX 17147 Reno, NV 89511 PH: 77 5-849-8000 ### The BlueRibbon Coali-tion is a national recreation group that champions re-sponsible recreation, and encourages individual en-vironmental stewardship. With members in all 50 states, BRC is focused on building enthusiast involve-ment with organizational efforts through membership, outreach, education, and collaboration among recre-ationists. 1-800-BLUERIB - June 2013 Dusty Times
