When we asked Rick Johnson if he 
had signed a new contract with 
Honda at the final National Cham- 
pionship MX of the season, he told 
us he had. But when we reported it, 
American Honda said that he hadn’t, 
causing some confusion. In phone 
conversations with both Johnson 
and an American Honda official, it 
is now clear that Johnson has not 
signed a new contract with American 
Honda, but is expected to do so. 
When asked about rumors that have 
him severing a long-time relation- 
ship with Fox Racing, Johnson says 
that he has not signed any clothing 
contracts for the 1989 season. 


Minnesota's Kevin Bennett (Yam) 
was the overall winner in round 
eight of the AMA National Cham- 
pionship Enduro Series in West 
Greenwich, Rhode Island, Sep- 
tember 25. Bennett dropped a 
total of 31 points, edging defend- 
ing National Champion Kevin 
Hines (KTM), who dropped 33. 
Third overall went to Jack Lafferty 
Jr. (Yam), while fourth and fifth 
went to Burt Guerette (KTM) and 
Randy Hawkins (Suz). Hawkins 
holds a commanding points lead 
over Jeff Russell, 172-119, with 
two rounds left in the series. Hines 
is third with 118. 


Micky Dymond (Yam) captured the 
250cc Pro class win in round three 








of the CMC Dodge Trucks Trans- 
Cal MX Series in Adelanto, Califor- 
nia, September 25. Second went to 
Ty Davis (Suz) and. third to Larry 
Brooks (Kaw). Davis took the 125cc 
Pro win over Damon Bradshaw 
(Yam) and Kyle Lewis (Hon). Buddy 
Antunez (Suz) claimed the 80cc 
Expert win, Craig Davis (Yam) 
topped the 500cc Pros, and Ron 
Turner (Hon) won the Vet Pro 
division. 

We're told that Bubba Shobert 
will produce affidavits at the 
October 7 appeal meeting on his 
Syracuse disqualification for his 
Honda dirt tracker being under- 
weight. Reportedly, Shobert's 
affidavits document that his crew 
weighed the bike four times 
within a few minutes at the Hager- 
stown Half Mile the weekend after 
the Syracuse Mile and each time 
the AMA scale showed a different 
weight. 


AMA Grand National Champion- 
ship points leader Scott Parker's 
Harley-Davidson factory XR750 was 
weighed immediately following the 
September 24 Camel Challenge race 
at Ascot Park in Gardena, California. 
The bike weighed 306 Ibs., six above 
the 300 lb. minimum weight for a 
two-valve motor, passing the test 
with flying colors. The minimum 
weight for a four-valve (read Honda) 
machine is 320 Ibs. 





Yamaha unveiled the new FZR600 at the IFMA show in Cologne, West 
Germany. The FZR600 weighs a claimed 390 Ibs. dry and features 
Yamaha's Deltabox frame and a water-cooled, four-valve-per-cylinder 
Genesis engine based on the FZR400 motor. Although the frame looks 
to be aluminum, it is actually steel. Yamaha felt that they could still 
re the light weight without going to the more expensive aluminum 
rame. 











Chris Carr, winner of the two 
previous Ascot Half-Mile Nation- 
als and the Camel Challenge, said 
that the Saturday, September 24, 
race was the best-ever at Ascot. 
“There was only one runaway 
heat race (Parker's)," he said. 
“The main was kind of a runaway, 
but there was a lot of action 
behind.”’ 


Does dirt track racing experience 
really make for better road racers? 
One thing’s for certain, there were 
plenty of road racers spectating at the 
September 24 Ascot Half-Mile. 
Among those spotted were Team 
Lucky Strike/Roberts’ Wayne Rai- 
ney and Dr. John’s Moto-Guzzi rider 
Doug Brauneck. Also seen were local 
racers Barry Burke, Dave Busby, 
John Glover and racing journalist 
Danny Coe. 


The all-new BMW K1 made its 
world premier and was just one 
of the highlight bikes at the IFMA 
Cologne Motorcycle Show held 
September 21-25 in Cologne, 
West Germany. The K1 features 
a 1000cc four-valve per cylinder 
engine which produces 100 hor- 
sepower and BMW's Paralever 
system which prevents shaft- 
drive induced rise and fall of the 
rear suspension. Other new bikes 
included Ducati's 906 Paso, Ultra 
Classic Tour Glide and Ultra Clas- 
sic Electra Glide luxury touring 
machines from Harley-Davidson, 
Suzuki's new RGV250, GS500E, 
GSX750F and GSXR1100, and 
Yamaha's all-new FZR600 and re- 
vamped FZR1000. Kawasaki un- 
veiled an E-box framed ZXR750, 
while several other companies 
released exotic machines that 
won't make their way to the U.S. 
Dual sport bikes also seem to be 
the rage as almost every manu- 
facturer displayed some sort of a 
on/ off-road bike. 


Team Suzuki (Suz) won the Sep- 
tember 24 Texas World Speedway 8- 
Hour, a round of the WERA Tsu- 
baki/GS Battery National Endu- 
rance Road Race Series, finishing 
five laps in front of runner-up BMH 
Racing (Hon). Promotion Motor- 
sports (Suz) finished third. Series 
points leaders The Human Race 
Team (Yam) suffered a series of 
problems and finished 24th. Solmax 
Racing (Suz), currently second in 
points, suffered handling problems 
in practice according to the WERA 
race bulletin, and did not start. Team 
Suzuki's win moves the series defend- 
ing champs into third in the point 
standings. Kayo Racing (Yam) 
dropped from third to fourth in the 
standings after crashing in the last 
hour of the Texas race, while run- 
ning third, and finishing seventh. 


Idiot Trivia: Ever wonder where 
WERA Endurance Road Race 
Series competitors Fifty One Fifty 
Racing got their name? It comes 
from 5150, the police code for an 
insane person at large. 


Vance & Hines’ Randy Renfrow, 
injured in a road racing crash at 
Willow Springs International Race- 
way in Rosamond, California, dur- 
ing the September 17-18 WERA 24- 
Hour West, was operated on for a 
blood clot in his left calf, and will 
miss the last round of the AMA 
National Superbike Series at Sears 
Point on October 2. 


Racing speeds at the October 8 
Sacramento Mile, the final round 
of the AMA Grand National 
Championship/ Camel Pro Series 
should be the fastest ever at the 
Cal-Expo oval, according to 








former Grand National Champion 
Gene Romero, promotions direc- 
tor for Agajanian Enterprises. 
“The dirt surface will be all new 
for the race,” said Romero. *'It 
(the surface) will be primo.’’ 
Harley-Davidson's Chris Carr set 
the one-lap qualifying record at 
Cal-Expo last October, at 37.117 
seconds, 96.991 mph. Harley's 
Scott Parker holds the 25-lap 
main event speed record of 
97.225 mph which he set in 
1985. ''Those records should 
fall,” said Romero. *‘I think you'll 
see average speeds above 100 
(mph).” 


Three-time World Champion Eddie 
Lawson says his manager, Gary 
Howard, is negotiating a new con- 
tract with Marlboro Yamaha's Gia- 
como Agostini. “Unless things fall 
apart, I expect to be riding for his 
(Agostini's) Marlboro Yamaha team 
next year to defend my title," said 
Lawson. “I believe I will be’ com- 
petitive for two more years — then 
I will think again about how I feel. 
I sure ain't quitting now!” 


The next-to-last round ofthe AMA 
National Championship Hare & 
Hound Series will take place in

Anza Borrego battle 


not over 

By Mike Bishop 

SAN DIEGO, CA, SEPT. 16 
California Parks Director. Henry 
Agonia announced a major conces- 
sion by the State Parks Commisson 
regarding the state's largest park, 
Anza Borrego, at the regular meeting 
of the Off Highway Motor Vehicle 
Recreation Commission in San 
Diego. 

Agonia said, “The Parks Commis- 
sion has agreed to send two commis- 
sioners to meet with OHV Commis- 
sioners regarding a policy for 
permitted use of the park.” 

OHV Commission Chairman 
Gene Chappie quickly appointed 
himself and Commissioner John 
Motley of San Luis Obispo to repres- 
ent OHV interests. The upcoming 
meeting has been set as a priority by 
Agonia, partly because he made 
several concessions to the Senate 
Rules Committee earlier this year 
during his controversial confirma- 
tion hearings. 

One of the first moves Agonia 
made when appointed to the direc- 
tor’s position in 1987 was to close 
Anza Borrego to OHV use. The 
California Off Road Vehicle Asso- 
ciation (CORVA) had mounted an 
effective opposition campaign to 
Agonia’s confirmation. After Agonia 
had made the concessions and was 
confirmed, the Parks Commission 
voted unanimously to ban all OHVs 
in State Parks where OHVs were not 
provided for in the general plan. If 
the two commissions can get the 
situation resolved, Anza Borrego 
would be open to organized groups 
ona indus addis of trails. 

Commissioner Jim Livermore 
asked for an exemption for the 
forthcoming commission tour in 
November. Livermore said, “‘I refuse 
to tour the desert cooped up in a van. 
I want a permit to operate an OHV!” 

In his Deputy. Director's report, 
Lee Chauvet informed the commis- 
sion that AB1201 sections will be 
allowed for ATVs only on unpaved 
roads. AB1201 is a law that allows 
local agencies to designate three-mile 
sections of road to allow OHV access 
to fuel, supplies and trailheads. The 
three-year-old law has still not been

That a Voice in the night would help 
pave the way to a future we could 
take for a ride. 

I’m not much for seminars. Per- 
sonally, I’ve always-preferred one- 
on-one. Talking head-to-head or not 
at all. But this time was different, 
this last week’s eve with “Doctor 
John." Wittner is this dentist- 
turned-racer-turned tuners name. 
Number One is his and his rider's, 
Doug Brauneck's, plate. AMA Pro 
Twins Series, GP class, their road 
racing game — their Moto Guzzi 
their proud bird, their one-of-a-kind 
flying goose. A full-liter V-twin 
posed with its pair of muscular 
spread wings. This red-&-white race 
bike that soars with a heart of 
inspiration and fancy — just sitting 
there on Pro Italia's showroom 
carpet, under the lights, not turning 
a wheel or making a sound. Motor- 
cycle sculpture at its very best! 
Beautiful as museum artwork by 
Michelangelo! And when Wittner 
spoke, mellow and clean, it was as 
if pages of poetry were coming to 
life. Not that the Good Guzzi Doctor 
rhymes his reasoning, no, no, not 
that! It's his VISION that sings out. 
His relating his own special purpose, 
past and yet to come, in a language 
and tone wedding revolution to 
reverie, innovation to something like 
incantation. Seated there with the 
rest, with those other riders from the 
valleys and from hills and canyons, 
listening, asking questions, I merged 
with Doctor John's musings, soak- 
ing up his cultist wisdom. That, for 
instance, true motorcycles are built 
for riders and not for mathematical 
examples. Yeah! His narrow face 
reshaped in a flash like some visage 
in video claymation — his whole 
racing effort makes rational sense, he

swore; it’s all aimed at making a 
iem street bike. John has to wake 

imself up sometimes to make sure 
this is even happening to him! — 
this traveling, this working romance 
he has with this singular, developing 
race bike. This shaping of this 
motorcycle and of some unknown 
Sunday rider's future. This declaring 
that racing isn't the main event, but 
that the testing is! Dr. John Wittner 
paused and smiled big, at himself, 
at the occasion, and at the thoughts 
that raced in his head. Then said: 
The best part of racing now is that 
I don’t have to ride. It’s but to dream, 
and to dream on.

Daydreamin’ 


I can’t believe it. What a season 
it’s going to be. Never has the 
motorcycle industry been as active or 
competitive. The wild rumors of 
rider changes, new factory entries, 
reports of innovative technical 
breakthroughs. 

Sitting on the starting grid this 
season will be, as usual, Yamaha. But 
what is this? John Kocinski leading 
the Exxon Yamaha team. Where is 
Eddie? No problem, he's sitting next 
to John on the new and highly 
competitive Kawasaki sponsored by 
7-11. What is this, Bubba Shobert 
dressed in black and orange? Yep! 
He's riding the rumored, top secret 
and innovative Harley-Davidson 
500cc GP machine. There’s Randy 
giving the championship another go 
on a refined Gucci-sponsored Cag- 
iva. Kevin Schwantz is back on the 
Pepsi Suzuki. Honda is here with its 
squad of the world’s top riders 
wearing Coca-Cola colors. Recently 
approved, the BP Norton Rotary is 
ridden by Ron Haslam. What's this? 
Am I seeing things or is that Freddie 


(Who?) Spencer aboard the RCA 


BMW GP machine? 

Wow, this is going to be one of 
the best Grand Prix seasons ever. I 
can’t wait for tonight’s AT&T- 
sponsored Monday night 500cc GP 
road race. Boy, are the shots from 
the Goodyear blimp great or what? 
They’re supplying the General 
Motors-sponsored Harley-Davidson 
team with tires.

Cycle dreamin* 


I had to tell you I really enjoyed 
Cycle Dreams by William Edgar in 
the August 31 issue. 


DAVID GAUTHIER 
Encino, CA 


Number One 


I was really bummed to read that 
Bubba Shobert had “lost” at Syra- 
cuse because of his bike being under 
the minimum weight. My wife and 
I moved to Orlando, Florida, two 
years ago, but flew home for the 
Syracuse Mile. We were there and 
saw the whole thing. 

We were lucky enough to secure 
pit passes from some friends, so we 
really got a close view of the action. 
As soon as Bubba got to his pit after 
the race, you could see he was upset. 
We heard him tell one of his people, 
“They say I'm underweight." But 
instead of being out of control, as 
you might expect from most people, 
Bubba kept his calm. We took a 
chance and asked for an autograph 
(my wife had his Camel Pro towel 
to sign). Not only did he sign the 
towel, but he also posed for a picture 
with us, all this time knowing his 
bike was impounded and his win was 
in jeopardy. 

My wife and I have seen Bubba 
race at Syracuse several times. We 
have also seen him work at Pocono, 
Hamburg and Daytona. This guy is 
a true champion. He always has time 





for the fans, and remains a gentle- 
man no matter what his situation. 
He may have “lost” Syracuse this 
year, but his behavior proves he is 
a winner no matter what the out- 
come. We all know Bubba is in a 
dogfight for the Grand National 
Championship crown, but even if he 
should lose (heaven forbid), his 
attitude towards the sport and it's 
fans will keep him Number One for 
a long time to come.

Not this Larry either 


I must agree with Larry Naston 
(Voices, September 28 issue) — the 
announcer at an event is the link 
between the racing and the fans. On 
the day of the Washougal MX, this 
Larry was in Japan narrating a film 
for Suzuki. 

Thank you for setting the record 
straight. 


LARRY E. HUFFMAN

Naston and Huffman's letters are in 
response to a letter (Voices, Sep- 
tember 21 issue) from John Dixon 
of Seattle International Raceway. 
Dixon referred to announcer Larry 
Maiers as “Larry What's His Name" 
and said Maiers “was unable to curb 
Bob Hannah's mouth." Dixon 
accused Hannah of cursing over the 
public address system. Hannah has 
contacted us and Dixon and a letter 
from Hannah, in which he explains 
what really did happen at Washou- 
gal, is on the way to-us . . . Editor. 


Dream come true 


I've just returned from the trip of 
my lifetime — the ISDE in Mende, 
France. Since I was young, I've 
always wanted to be a member of the 
U.S. team at the Six Days. This year 
that dream came true. Another dream 
came true when I finished the event 
and won a gold medal. I’m proud 
and very happy to have been part of 
this truly world-class event. 

This couldn't have been possible 
without the help of many fine people 
and sponsors who really support this 
great sport. First, I want to thank 
the people at Larson's Cycle in 
Cambridge, Minnesota, who have 
done so much to support the sport 
and me through the years. This year, 
on top of everything else, they 
provided me with a new Honda 
CR250 before the event. After almost 
900 miles and six days, I wouldn't 
hesitate to do it again with that bike! 

Part of my Honda's success is due 
to a PSI performance exhaust pipe 
which lasted through 900 miles of 
rocks without a dent and produced 
fantastic power. 

Another sponsor I wish to thank 
is Malcolm Smith Racing Products. 
Also, a big thanks to Smith Goggles. 

Thanks to the people who literally 


made it possible, Barb and Joe 


Boisvert who threw a fund-raising 
party on my behalf and donated over 
$500. 

AMA District 23 also really came 
through with help. We are not a large 
district but the support I received was 
tremendous. Thanks to the Northern 
Lites M.C., Norsemen M.C., Straight 





Arrow Enduro Riders, River Valley 
Enduro Riders, Golden Eagles M.C. 
and many individual members of 
District 23, Minnesota. 

Finally I want to thank my 
manager, mechanic, coach and 
friend. He has done everything for 
me but ride the motorcycle. I think 
he deserves this gold medal as much 
as I do. Great thanks to my dad, Tim 
Zierman. I couldn't and wouldn't 
want to have done it without him.

Anza Borrego 


(Continued from page 2) 


implemented on any road sections in 
California. 

Chauvet went on to promote the 
idea of a State OHV Foundation that 
could purchase OHV lands imme- 
diately as they become available. 
Present law is a cumbersome system 
of checks and balances that prohibit 
fast action. Chairman Chappie 
expressed his concern: “People and 
companies that donate funds to the 
Foundation must be assured the 
money will only be used for OHV 
use 

In committee reports, the Plan- 
ning and Acquisition Committee 
reported a 38% increase in use at 
Hollister Hills and the new user 
surveys are starting to be returned 


‘with valuable planning infor- 


mation. 

The State Wide Planning and 
Grants Committee reports were 
deferred until the Anza Borrego 
meeting in November. Committee 
Chairman Ed Waldheim had been 
called to Argentina on family 
business. 

During the Resource Management 
Committee. report, Commissioner 
Hugh Mcguigan made a motion 
asking for $1 million to be set aside 
for environmental mitigation. 
Mcguigan, former secretary of the 
Shasta Chapter of the Sierra Club, 
expressed concern that the BLM and 
Forest Service needed available funds 
to react quickly to disasters. The 
motion was seconded by Commis- 
sioner Marge Sutton, former Loma 
Prieta Chapter Chair of the Sierra 
Club. After much discussion, the 
commission voted unanimously to 
ask staff to study the validity of the 
proposal. 

The Awards and Recognition 
Committee made a motion to con- 
sider former two-term commissioner 
Mike Bishop for his service to the 
Division and service to the OHV 
community as a safety advocate. The 
motion- passed unanimously and 
Bishop will be presented the Gold 
Helmet Award in November. 

Chauvet reported that DeAnza 
Cycle Park in Riverside County will 
see increased use. The park is in the 
center of massive developments that 
have squeezed out Riverside Race- 
way. Chauvet also announced that 
counties are taking advantage of the 
liability insurance pool and Santa 
Clara’s Mecalf Cycle Park will 
reopen. 

Bishop, representing the Pismo 
Dunes Property Owners Association, 
alerted the commission to the dec- 
lining safety record in the State 
Vehicular Recreation Area. He urged 
the commission to direct the District 
Superintendent to cooperate with the 
on-going safety programs of the 
Volunteer Dune Patrol. In the last 
year members of the Dune Patrol 
have acquired inholdings in the

Harley-Davidson's Scott Parker won the 30th Annual Half Mile National at Ascot Park and may have clinched the Grand National Championship. 








AMA Grand National Championship/ 
Camel Pro Series: Rounds 16/14 


Parker wins, claims 
title (sort of) at 
Ascot Half Mile

GARDENA, CA, SEPT. 24 


Harley-Davidson's Scott Parker won the 
30th running of the Ascot Half Mile 
National to move a step closer to claiming 
his first-ever Grand National Champion- 


ship. The 26-year-old, Swartz 


* Creek, Michigan, rider took 


6 


home the lion's share of the 
$35,000 purse and picked up 
another 20 points; he now leads 
Bubba Shobert, who finished seventh 
here, by 28 points, 228 to 200. 
Normally, this would be sufficient 
to clinch the title, but if an appeal 
by Shobert over his Syracuse Mile 
disqualification is upheld, Parker 
would only lead by eight points, and 
would have to finish third (if Bubba 
wins) to officially claim the title at 
Sacramento, California, October 8. 





Second place in the National and 
first in the $17,500 Camel Challenge 
went to a hard-riding Ricky Graham, 
who earned $10,000 for his win in 
the five-lap dash. The former Grand 
National Champion switched to a 
Rob Muzzy-prepared Honda RS750 
tonight after having ridden both 
Mert Lawwill's and his own bikes 
this season, in the process defeating 
Steve Morehead, third on the Mert 
Lawwill Harley-Davidson. Parker's 
teammate Chris Carr and Rich King 
on his Garvis Honda Town RS750 
rounded out the top five. 

There almost wasn't a race, as the 





threat of a riders' strike loomed 
shortly before the race. The Agajan- 
ians, owners of Ascot Park and 
promoters of the Sacramento Mile 
season finale, wanted to assure 
themselves of full fields, and 
requested that the AMA allow 600cc 
machines to compete in both of these 
Nauonals. The AMA agreed, and 
sent out letters saying so to compet- 
itors. With the formation of the AMA 
600 National Dirt Track Series this 
year, only 750cc twins have been 
permitted in mile and half mile 
Grand National Championship 
events. 

This infuriated the 750cc riders, 
not so much over the fact that the 
AMA would allow the 600s to race, 
but over the possibility of a 600cc 
rider entering, and perhaps win- 
ning, the Camel Challenge. 

“Td much rather win the Camel 
Challenge than the main event, any 
day," said rider rep Ronnie Jones, 
the most vocal of the opponents. He 
explained that he and the other 750cc 
riders had spent thousands of dollars 
on their machinery, and only they 
should be awarded the big bucks. 

The controversy existed, mainly, 
over the presence of Bryan Villella, 
who chose to ride his Wood-Rotax 
600 over his Harley-Davidson 
XR750. Last year at Ascot, Villella 
qualified for the Camel Challenge on 
his 600. “It’s easier to ride and I can 
go faster," he claimed, adding, “The 
AMA said we could run, so we should 
be able to.” 

“A 600 can go fast here," said 
Wood-Rotax creator Ron Wood, 
“But it depends on track conditions. 
A 750 has the advantage if there’s a 





heavy cushion, and it looks like there 
is tonight.” 

Kevin Atherton, racing as an 
Expert for the first time, was also 
riding a Wood-Rotax at Ascot, and 
proved himself a force to be reckoned 
with, finishing sixth in the National. 
He’s also planning to ride his 600 
at the Sacramento Mile, but it is 
unlikely that he’ll pose much of a 
threat on the bigger track. 

Jones was joined in an impromptu 
meeting in the Ascot infield by both 
Parker and Shobert, who presented 
their case to the AMA officials. A call 
was put in to Bill Amick, AMA head 
of professional racing, and a decision 
was made. They would guarantee six 
750s in the Challenge, but any 600cc 
rider who qualified for the Challenge 
would also be allowed to compete. 
The possibility existed, then, for the 
first-ever Camel Challenge to feature 
more than a half-dozen riders, some 
of whom would go home empty- 
handed. 

The riders were not in complete 
agreement over the decision, but they 
were happy that they’d stuck 
together in presenting a unified voice 
to the AMA. They vowed to resolve 
this situation far in advance of the 
Sacramento race, thereby preventing 
the situation from recurring. 

“We didn’t want to cancel the race 
any more than they did," said Parker, 
later. 

Jones was not at all happy with 
the decision, but was even more upset 
over the way it was handled. “It 
should never have taken so long," 
he said. 

In short, the biggest losers here 
were the 9637 fans, who sat and 





waited in complete ignorance for 
nearly an hour and a half before 
practice finally began at 7:15 p.m. 


Time Trials 

The debate over whether 600s 
would be allowed to enter the Camel 
Challenge was all in vain, as Villella 
qualified just ninth on his 600, the 
Pontiac, Michigan, rider turning a 
best effort by a 600 rider of 22.403 
seconds. 

Parker gave a hint of what was to 
come later, earning the pole position 
for the first heat and the Camel 
Challenge with a fast time of 22.049. 
Graham was second fastest at 22.071 
and Morehead was third at 22.094. 

Camel Pro champ Shobert qual- 
ified fourth on the Honda with a 
time of 22.237. Carr and Doug 
Chandler were just one-thousandth 
of a’ second apart at 22.273 and 
22.274, respectively; the SuperTrapp 
Honda rider earning the sixth and 
final spot in the Camel Challenge. 

Rounding out the top 10 qualifiers 
were Garth Brow (22.345), Jones 
(22.354), Villella, and an "Hardin 
(22.417). 


Heats 


The first 10-lap heat race. didn't 
start until after 9 p.m. but once it 
did it was a Parker benefit. Jon 
Cornwell led off the line, but Parker 
overtook the Canadian on the out- 
side of turn two and never looked 
back. Don Howard held third on the 
Aztec Racing Harley-Davidson, 
chased by Jones on the GF Racing 
Honda. Villella was charging on the 
600 single, starting out in fifth place, 
then passing Jones for fourth on lap 
six and Howard for third on lap nine. 

Parker motored away for the win, 
and Villella got under Cornwell in 
the final turn, wheelying across the 
finish line to take second. Cornwell 
claimed third place and the last direct 
transfer to the final. Howard took 
fourth, Jones fifth, William Hern- 
don sixth, Chance Darling seventh, 
Keith Jacobsen eighth and Michael 
Reid ninth; all six riders transfered 
to the first semi. 

Heat two took awhile to get going. 
First, Hardin and. George Roeder 
were sent to the back of the grid for 
creeping over the line. Then, the first 
attempt at a start was red-flagged, a 
blessing for Graham who'd gotten 
an abysmal start. On the restart, 
Graham went around Dan Ingram 
and the Bubba Shobert-sponsored 
Honda for the lead, but the newest 
addition to the National winner's 
club retook the lead on lap four. 
Graham got back in front on lap nine 
and led Ingram to the flag. Rodney 
Farris, riding a Harley-Davidson 
(though he'd pre-entered on a 
Honda), took third. Brow, Roeder, 
Steve Aseltine, Dan McDonnell, 
Hardin and Jon Nunez went to the 
semi. 

Heat three saw Doug Chandler 
lead wire to wire, with Keith Day and 
King, both on Hondas, battling for 
second. King got around Day on lap 
seven to take second. Morehead, Tim 
Mertens who fought a dragging rear 
brake as would several riders during 
the evening, Aaron Hill, Kenneth 
Netto, Willie McCoy and Craig 
Johnson advanced to the semi, 

The last of the heats was the most 
exciting with Shobert, Carr, Terry 
Poovey and Atherton racing for the 
lead. Shobert led off the line, with 
Carr getting by once on lap six, and 
then again on lap seven after Bubba 
inched out front briefly. Atherton 
snuck past Shobert, whose rear disc 
was glowing red, on lap seven (a 
finishing order which would be 
repeated in the final) and started 
pressuring Carr just before the race 
was red-flagged and called complete 
when Kevin Todd fell between turns 
three and four. Todd was unhurt. 








Carr took the win, with Atherton 


second and Poovey third. Shobert 
took fourth place, missing out on a 
direct transfer to the final and having 
to go to the second semi. He was 
joined by Pete Hames, Chad Felicio, 
Bobby McDowell, Sal Hoffman and 
Mike Inderbitzin. 

"It took me four or five laps to 
get used to running up high," said 
Carr, afterwards, 
used to it, the bike worked great.” 

I was going through the corners 
faster than Chris (Carr)," said Ather- 
ton, "But we were using the same 
line and he got a better drive." 


Semis 

The first semi was red-flagged as 
a result of a three-rider pileup on the 
second lap. The riders lined up for 
a single file restart with Ronnie 
Jones, in front, and then leading wire 
to wire. Jones earned the transfer to 
the final, while the others looked to 
the Last Chance Qualifier. 

The second semi saw Morehead 
take a high line to win, sending 
Shobert to the Last Chance Quali- 
fier. The champ would be in the 
unfamiliar position of having to win 
the LCQ to earn the last position in 
the 15-man final. 

“T came here pumped up and ready 
to race," said Shobert, “But I can't 
get the bike to where I'm comfortable 
riding it.” Shobert’s crew, Mike 
Velasco and Skip Eaken, switched 
the triple clamps to ones with less 


- offset, in the hopes that this would 


help Shobert go faster. It seemed to 
work. 
Camel Challenge 

Parker, Graham, Morehead, Sho- 
bert, Carr and Chandler lined up for 
the five richest laps in racing, all 
seeking a cut of the $17,500 Camel 
Challenge purse. 

Parker took the lead in turn one, 
going between Carr and Shobert, but 
by the completion of lap one it was 
Shobert leading Graham, with Carr 
third. Parker dropped to fourth. 

Graham got by Shobert in turn 
two to begin lap three, and led the 
rest of the way to the checkers. 
Shobert bobbled at the exit of turn 
two on the last lap and was swal- 
lowed up by Parker, Carr and More- 
head, in that order. Shobert took fifth 
with Chandler last. 

Graham was awarded a clock 
trophy for his win, along with an 
oversize check for $10,000. He 
thanked tuner Rob Muzzy for build- 
ing a fast, reliable bike. Aside from 


"But once I got- 











Steve Morehead finished third on a Mert Lawwill-tuned Harley-Davidson, 
passing Harley-Davidson factory rider Chris Carr on the last lap. 








Grand National Champion Bubba Shobert (1) raced with first-time Expert 
Kevin Atherton (67X). Atherton finished sixth and Shobert seventh.

Shobert won, but not without a 
fight from Roeder. Roeder actually 
led coming out of turn four on the 
last lap, but Shobert got a better drive 
and led across the stripe. The Grand 
National Champion would be start-

“Tve been climbing the ladder for 
a long, long time,” said Parker 
(who's been racing on the Grand 
National circuit since 1979) atop the 
victory rostrum. “People don't know 
how hard it is. This is just about 
the top step of the ladder." 

Shouting, ''Ooo-eee," Parker 
sprayed champagne at the growing 
crowd, and was joined briefly by 
Shobert, similarly hollering. Parker 
resisted the temptation to peel off one 
of the two number ones on his 
number plate, and signed auto- 
graphs for over an hour. 

“JT don't think Bubba did it inten- 
tionally,” said Parker in reference to 
the Syracuse disqualification. “But 
his bike was underweight, and now 
it’s on the shoulders of the appeals 
board to make a decision.” 

“If Scotty does good at Sacra- 
mento, it won't matter,” said Shobert 
in reference to the points chase. 
“That’s the way I'd like it, and I'm 
suré Scotty wants it that way, too.”

qualified for bumping earlier in the 
year, I thought I'd better not. 

"Im really proud of Scotty

hasn’t, it’s him.” .

Recently-crowned 500cc World Champion Eddie Lawson (3) leads Kevin 


d 


Soo 


Schwantz (34) en route to his seventh GP win of the season. 





World Championship Road Race Series: 


Final round 


Lawson dominates 
season finale 


By Michael Scott 
Photos by Patrick Gosling 
GOIANIA, BRAZIL, SEPT. 17 


Eddie Lawson finished the 1988 season like 
a true champion, with a hard-fought but 
convincing victory in the Brazilian GP at 
Goiania. Riding a Marlboro Yamaha that 


was the best handling bike of 
the day on the bumpy circuit 
in inland Brazil, he staved off 
a determined ae in the 
early laps from Kevin Schwantz on 
the Pepsi Suzuki; then - when Wayne 
Gardner’s Rothmans Honda joined 
the battle - drew away remorselessly. 

In the end, he was 13 seconds 
ahead, setting a new lap record on 
the fifth of 32 laps, while third- 
placed Schwantz only gave up the 
fight with Gardner under the com- 
bined disadvantages of a wildly- 
wobbling Suzuki and some rough 
riding from the defeated Australian 
World Champion. . 

Niall Mackenzie on the HB Honda 
was fourth, after a strong ride 
through from a poor start, under 
concerted attack from the Gauloises 
Yamaha of Christian Sarron, the 
Frenchman in pain both from an 
ankle sprained in a practice crash, 
and a rib broken from a personal 
watercraft crash the week before. 








The pair had outdistanced fast- 
starter Wayne Rainey, stricken with 
bad wheelspin problems with his 
Dunlop tires. But the rubber had a 
worse trick to play on the Califor- 
nian, spoiling his perfect finishing 
record this season, when he had to 
retire with a punctüre. 

This left his Lucky Strike team- 
mate Kevin Magee to take sixth, after 
playing games with a four-bike 
group that saw some close dicing. 
The first to leave it was Randy 
Mamola, who had been thrilling the 
smattering of spectators all weekend 
with his tire-smoking dirt track 
sliding techniques. He did it once 
too often in the race, and was thrown 
off over the high side. 

Pier-Francesco Chili on the other 
HB Honda was seventh, Rob McEI- 
nea's Pepsi Suzuki eighth, with the 
ailing de Radigues ninth, the last 
rider on the same lap as Lawson. 

Among a small number of non- 
finishers, Ron Haslam retired the Elf 
5 after a disastrous last race for the 























is 


Cagiva's Randy Mamola displayed his tire-smoking slides to the Brazilian 


spectators before his antics led to a crash on lap 12 of the GP. 


French odd-ball machine. First his 
front brakes started binding, then the 
engine (a spare, put in after a blow- 
up in the morning) nipped up. He 
carried on, riding with the choke out 
to richen the mixture, only to be 
failed on lap 19 when the brakes 
seized up once and for all. He was 
ahead of McElInea until then. 

. The 250cc race fizzled out as the 
last showdown between champion- 
ship rivals Sito Pons and Juan 
Garriga, when the latter was knocked 
down from sixth overall to almost 
last in a second-lap incident involv- 
ing Carlos Lavado and Martin 
Wimmer, with Wimmer falling off. 

As Garriga strove heroically on his 
damaged Ducados Yamaha, coming 
through to finish fifth, Dominique 
Sarron and his Rothmans Honda 
won for the second year in succes- 
sion. With Lavado second, Pons rode 
to a hard-pressed but safe third to 
tie up the World Championship. 

The lap record went to Luca 
Cadalora, who sprinted away to a 
strong lead, only to crash after 14 laps 
when Sarron started putting the 
pressure on. 

Lavado's second was his best result 
of the year, achieved on a Yamaha 
whose performance was enlivened 
with new cylinders, part of their 
effort to support Garriga's slim title 
hopes. They had also supplied 
Gauloises rider Jean-Phillipe Rug- 
gia with a YZR, which he fell off 
twice in practice, finally preferring 
to race his more familiar TZ produc- 
tion bike. 

But it was too little too late, and 
when Wimmer’s crash dropped 
Garriga out of contention for the 
lead, the game was over, and the title 
went to Pons. 


500cc practice 


The 2.37-mile circuit, looping 
back and forth on a gentle red-dirt 
hillside, has a relatively long straight 
and a selection of tricky bends on 
rising and falling ground. Of more 
significance was the surface: abrasive 
and very bumpy, which brought out 
the worst in the Honda’s handling 
and in Team Roberts’ Dunlop tires. 

The latter were the worst affected, 
because Gardner managed to secure 
pole position from Lawson in the 





last session; while Magee and Rainey 
languished on the second row. 

Brazil’s holiday atmosphere pre- 
vailed, although times were signif- 
icantly faster than last year, and 
instead of his usual fighting talk and 
psychological warfare, Gardner said. 
"T think Eddie will win tomorrow, 
unless I can get away from the start. 
The Honda really jumps around on 
these bumps, but you can see how 
much better the Yamaha handles 
them. Of course, I'll try and win,I 
wouldn't enter otherwise. But it's not 
a big grudge match or anything." 

Lawson hung on to second, and 
said that timekeepers had missed his 
best lap. He was in a mood best 
described as “quietly confident,” but 
on race morning, he discovered an 
alarming problem. “I tried it with 
a full tank for the first time this 
morning, and it pushed the front real 
bad. We've made a suspension 
adjustment that may help, otherwise 
the first laps will be hard." 

Schwantz was running hard and 
fast on the Suzuki, which suited the 
track well. “Lots of mid-speed 
acceleration, and bends up and down 
the hill. I believe I could win it," 
he said. 

Then came Sarron, already with 
a painfully broken rib from a per- 
sonal watercraft crash the week 
before, who then low-sided into the 
dirt on a tricky left-hander over a 
brow that was to claim many more 
victims, spraining his ankle in the 
process. Last man on the front row 
was Chili, his normal cheerful frame 
of mind improved still futher by at 
last getting the best out of his V-four 
Honda, no matter how late in the 
season. 

The two Lucky Strike bikes led 
row two, but were in tire trouble that 
was more worrying than usual, 
because Dunlop had flown in a large 
selection of tires, mainly based on 
a new mould first tested 1n Czechos- 
lovakia, that was intended to solve 
their wheelspin problems.at any 
angle of lean. 

""There's nowhere here where you 
really gas it when it's leaned hard 
over," Rainey said. “Its more when 
you're a little bit more upright... 
and that's when you get high-sided,” 
while Roberts, watching from the 








trackside, said: "We're losing a lot 
of time between the apex of the 
corner and the ‘start of the exit 
proper.” In the end, this team raced 
on a production rear cover, discard- 
ing all the new experimental stuff. 

The new tires had in any case 
arrived only 10 minutes before 
practice began: Magee had an even 
more . difficult journey, spending 
almost four days travelling after 
engine trouble turned his aircraft 
back to Sydney, and he missed his 
connections. Upon arrival.in Rio, he 
discovered a time problem, and he 
arrived at Goiania, dog-tired and 
dehydrated, the night before practice, 
after the rest had already had an 
untimed hour on the track. “I’ve 
never felt so knackered, even in an 
eight-hour race," he said, after the 
first two sessions. "I even stopped 
halfway through the last session just 
to have a rest." 

Mamola was next to him on the 
grid, and the star of the sideshow 
wherever he was placed. By now, 
he had perfected his Cagiva's rear- 
wheel slides to the extent that smoke 
was pouring off the Pirelli, and he 
was hanging the rear out like a flat 
tracker on dirt. After a particularly 
lurid slide, he would wave at the 
ecstatic photographers, or look 
behind to see if anyone following 
had appreciated his efforts. 

Completing the second row, de 
Radigues was by now speaking more 
freely about his dissatisfaction with 
his number two role in the Marlboro 
team. “My bike is put together out 
of old parts as usual," he com- 
plained. “Once I rode Eddie Law- 
son's second bike, and I was amazed 
at how much faster it was than my 
best bike.” One contract that did not 
look like being renewed. 

A strangely poor performance, at 
contract time, from Mackenzie, 
heading row three, and one-and-a- 
half seconds off the pace. “I can't see 
where I'm losing time," he said. “I 
feel good, and when I follow any- 
body, I seem to be as fast round any 
section." 

Haslam was next, giving the Elf 
5 a last outing before the French 
sponsors pull the plug. He was 
earlier credited with the fastest time 
in the first session, but his was 
readjusted before the last, which 
seemed to define the Elf’s level more 
clearly. 

With the second Cagiva rider 
Raymond Roche absent, the remain- 
ing V-fours completed row three: 
McElnea’s Suzuki, Burnett on Yat- 
sushiro’s NSR, Igoa's '87 Yamaha, 
each of these having probably their 
last ride on these bikes. ‘There were 
only 20 starters, and Barchitta was 
top NS on row four. 


500cc GP 


Lawson went into the lead from 
the start, with Rainey and Schwantz 
in his wake. Sarron was fourth and 
Gardner seventh. 

Rainey was soon fading, witha tire 
that was already spinning. That gave 
Lawson and Schwantz some brea- 
thing space, and they drew ahead 
slightly, with the Suzuki seeming to 
match the Yamaha. Meantime, 
Gardner was picking up two places 
a lap, and passed Sarron and Rainey 

-in one outbraking sweep to move 
into third on lap four, to set about 
closing a two-second gap. 

Lawson set his fastest lap the fifth 
time around, but then Schwantz 
outbraked him at the end of lap five, 
with his Texas ride-'em cowboy style 
well in evidence, the Suzuki snaking 
wildly under acceleration. This may 
have helped Gardner in his pursuit, 
for he was closing fast; and by the 
time Lawson passed Schwantz (again 
at the end of the straight), the 
Australian was almost on them. 











Gardner took three laps to get by 
Schwantz, and this time it was to 
Lawson’s benefit, and he was one- 
and-a-half seconds clear by the time 
the Honda moved up to second. 
Head down and riding flawlessly, the 
American continued to stretch his 
lead, while Gardner was held up 
twice more when Schwantz got by 
briefly. 

By half distance, the gap was better 
than four seconds, and it just kept 
on getting bigger. By the end, 
Lawson was 13 seconds in the clear, 
and had confirmed his superiority. 

“That was a hard one," he said 
afterwards, drenched in sweat but 
ecstatic after his 26th GP win, and 
seventh of the season. Even Gardner 
broke his silence after the race to 
congratulate the man who beat him 
in 1988. 

The Australian also complained 
that his rear tire had gone off, and 
that he couldn't put the power down 
right, while Schwantz had some 
words to say about Gardner's hard 
riding. “He barged right across me 
more than once." the Texan said. 

Rainey had been fading steadily, 
and had lost fourth to Sarron on the 
sixth lap. Meantime, Mackenzie - all 
too aware of the Honda top brass on 
hand, and anxious to secure a 1989 
contract - was charging through 
from a poor start, 12th after lap one. 

He passed de Radigues, Chili and 
Mamola all in one lap to move up 
to sixth, and steadily closed on 
Sarron and Rainey. By lap 11 he was 
past the American, and took two 
more laps to get past the Frenchman, 
whereupon the pair of them pulled 
away. 

Sarron shadowed the yellow 
Honda for the rest of the race, 
pulling back yards under braking, 
but losing them again on the corner 
exits, although he later said his 
Yamaha was probably faster once it 
got wound up. 

His final attempt to get back in 
front took place as they accelerated 
towards the line, and he actually got 
almost alongside Mackenzie, but the 
Scotsman took fourth by just over 
a tenth of a second. 

Rainey was. gradually dropping

back, but still well clear of a four- 
bike group behind him. This com- 
prised of de Radigues, Chili, Mam- 
ola and Magee; having a regular 
ding-dong with Mamola still smok- 
ing his rear tire and demonstrating 
his accomplishment as a slider. 
Magee then drew ahead slightly, 
with Mamola in pursuit, but lap 12; 
then they closed back up again, and 
Mamola dropped to the back of the 
group. "I was adjusung my front 
brake lever, then when I got back on 
the gas to catch up again, the back 
wheel came round and it spat me 
off," he said. 

Indeed yes, with the bike and rider 
cartwheeling high in the air after 
what amounted to a virtual, 100- 
degree spin out. 

Shortly after this, Magee dropped 
back behind de Radigues and Chili, 
the start of some erratic riding that 
was not without reason. Anxious not 
to over-work his production tire after 
a 10th placed getaway, he'd also 
accepted that he had no hope of 
catching the leaders, so instead he 
played games with the group. “I 
planned to make a run for it at the 
end, but I'd go ahead of them then 





drop back to make them think I was 
already trying my hardest.” 

He got bored with this with eight 
laps to go, and: “I decided to make 
a bolt, but just after I got in front 
I got into a corner too hot. I turned 
it as much as I could, then picked 
it up and ran across the dirt.” 

He managed to stay on board, 
however, and this time made no 
mistakes as he passed his two rivals 
to secure what was now sixth place. 
He was some four seconds ahead of 
Chili at the finish, and about 45 
behind Sarron, but the official results 
flattered by putting him fourth- 
tenths behind Sarron. In the absence 
of official protest, the erroneous time 
stood. 

The promotion had come about 


- after the demise of Rainey on lap 25, 


who pitted with air escaping from 
his front tire, through a porous 
sidewall. “I don't know how long 
it had been going down," he said. 
"But suddenly when I put the brake 
on, the bike wanted to stand up. I 
knew what it was, because I had a 
tire do that to me. in the morning 
warm-up.” 

Meantime, de Radigues, battling

leaving Chili’s seventh place unmol- 
ested in the closing stages, but also 
allowing the steady but undramatic 
McElnea through to eighth; the 
Belgian faltering home ninth, the 
last rider not to be lapped.

out the race, while Fabio Barchitta 
was the only one of the handful of 
Honda privateers to run full distance 
without problems, finishing 11th.

was desperately slow, and finished

250cc practice 


To the surprise of all except 
seasoned Japan-watchers, Yamaha's 
support of Garriga's last-ditch title 
bid seemed very half-hearted. They 
might have mobilized not only 
Christian Sarron (who offered), but 
also John Kocinski, as well as their 
own National Champion Honma. 

What they did was merely to 
supply season-long top privateer 
Ruggia with a single YZR, and to 
serve all the regular V-twin runners 
with a helping of new cylinders, 
which added substantially both to 
acceleration and top speed. Former 
champion Lavado was delighted, 
saying: “This is not just the first time 
this year we’ve been anywhere near 
the Hondas, but also that my V-twin 
Yamaha has been as fast as those of 
Garriga and Cadalora.” 

Garriga needed to win, and for 
Pons to finish fourth or lower, for 
the Yamaha man to get the title; and 
at first it seemed this would be 
possible, with. Garriga fastest in 
untimed practice. It also seemed clear 
that Ruggia's support would be 
erratic at best, with the French 
tumbler falling off the YZR twice 
before the race. 

But Garriga's time was almost 
three seconds off the real pace, set 
by last year's winner Dominique 
Sarron, who took pole in the first 
session, and stayed there, speeding 
up still further in the afternoon. It 
was his last 250 ride in the Rothmans 
team before embarking on a 500 
career on an Elf-sponsored NSR 
Honda next year, and he told both 
Pons and Garriga: "I won't get 


between you if you are fighting, but 


otherwise I will ride my own race. 
I have that duty to my sponsors." 

Pons was second, and feeling the 
pressure. He didn't have to do as 
much to win the title, only follow 
Garriga; on the other hand, he could 
easily lose it if he made a mistake. 

"I'm just treating this as another 
race, that it is very = rtant for me 
to finish,” he said. “If I see a chance 
of winning, I will is it. But it is 
more important just to get to the 
end." 

'Then came the three speeded-up 
Yamahas, but it was not the Spaniard 
fastest. Lavado was racing as close 
to his Venezuelan home as he ever 
gets, and was further delighted with 
his newly-competitive bike, and 
placed third overall. Cadalora was 
next, with Garriga in the end only 
just on the front row, although there 
were less than two-tenths between 
the three regular YZR V-twin riders. 
However, only the Hondas had 
broken the 1:30 barrier, and Pons' 
job was beginning to look easier. 

Cardus was machine hard in his 
last ride in Angel Nieto's Ducados- 
sponsored Honda team, and led the 
second row though dumped by 
Nieto, a superstitious man who 
believes the unlucky Cardus has been 
seen by the evil eye, he was well on 
the way to putting together his own 
works Honda deal for 1989, with 
considerable help from Pons, so he 
would return the favor here if he had 
the chance. 

Then came Jochen Schmid, faster 
of the pair of Anton Mang clones 
on his unused NSR Hondas, and 
only then Ruggia, who had reverted 
to this TZ, saying that the factory 
bike was “very efficient, but hard to 
set up." Others believed the switch 
back to the factory twin had more 
to do with his having run out of parts 
for his much-battered YZR. 

Roth completed row two; the two 
remaining works bikes filling row 
three, led by Reggiani's Aprilia and 
Wimmer's TZ, both faster than 
Cornu, Mang's second man Helmet 
Bradl, and Shimizu's last works 
Honda. 

For Wimmer, it seemed at last as 
though all his hard work might pay 
off, after a season of bad luck in 
which he and engineer Helmut Fath 
had striven to get the best out of the 
TZ. “Helmut has made 90 gears to 
give us a good gearbox choice; he 
has made the engine probably the 
fastest of the TZs and we are aero- 
dynamically better. Our fairing 
makes the bike five centimeters lower 
than the stock TZ. But even so, the 
factory bikes have the advantage 
where they can put the power on 
earlier coming out of the bends." 

Ten Latin-American entries 
(among them Carlos Lavado's 
brother Luiz, placed 19th on a 











Spaniard Pons' (left) third place finish behind Dominique Sarron (right) 
and Carlos Lavado gave him the 250cc World Championship. 


Yamaha sponsored by McDonalds) 
meant there were 38 250s trying for 
a place, and the non-qualifiers 
included a positively antique- 
looking tubular-framed TZ Yamaha. 
In the space of five years, such has 
been the pace of developrnent, this 
bike now looked like something out 
of the ark. 


250cc GP 


The die for the championship was 
cast on the second lap, as Roth and 
Reggiani led a tight pack around the 
Goiania loops. Pons was disputing 
fourth; Garriga had just moved up 
to sixth, then, as they braked for the 
right-hander at the end of the 
straight: “I felt a bang on the back 
of my seat at the same time as Lavado 
went past on the inside of me." 
Garriga said. 

The bang came from Wimmer, 
who was. engaged in outbraking 
Garriga just as Lavado came inside 
him and stole his line. “It was a 
typical racing incident, and you 
cannot blame anyone," the ctest- 
fallen German said later. “I dare not 
brake, because then I knew I would 
fall and knock Garriga off, so I tried 
my best to slow down and get round 
the bend, but that carried us both 
to the outside of the circuit." 

Once they got there, Wimmer hit 
the dirt and fell, while Garriga stayed 
on: “I was riding the tightrope, on 
the paint at the edge of the track. 
'Then I went onto the dirt, but I was 
going slower by then, and I managed 
to stay on two wheels." When he 
rejoined after this adventure, it was 
way down in 25th. 

Up front, Roth soon gave way to 
Cadalora and Reggiani, and the 
former made a convincing attempt 
at a runaway win, breaking the lap 
record third time round, and open- 
ing the gap to almost three seconds 
by lap 10, by which time Sarron had 
come through to second. 

Meantime, Lavado - having by far 
his best race of the year - moved up 
to third, while Pons was also moving 
po > the thick of the tight pursuit 


um half- distance, Sarron was start- 
ing to catch Cadalora, with Lavado 
in his tracks, and Pons, Roth and 
Reggiani in a tight knot between 
them. Garriga had been forging his 
way back through the field, display- 
ing astonishing lean angles and 
desperate late braking. He was now 
10th, and had picked up Ruggia's 
TZ on the way through. 

But two laps later Cadalora, feel- 
ing the pressure, lost the front wheel 
under braking, and fell to earth, out 
of the race. Sarron took over the lead, 
and galloped on to take the flag, five 
seconds ahead of Lavado. 

Pons held on to third throughout, 
but was relieved when he looked 


behind him on lap 22 to see that the 
man behind him was no longer 
Reggiani, but Roth, with the Italian 
star soon to retire, his Aprilia's 
ignition failing. “I knew I would be 
safer with Roth there, and that he 
wouldn't do anything silly," said 
Pons. He nearly spoke too soon, for 
the German all but hit him a lap 
later, when the Spaniard's exit from 
the final bend was a bit slower than 
he'd anticpated. 

Garriga caused some disturbance 
now he was among the faster men, 
displacing Shimizu, Cardus and 
Bradl one by one. He could climb 
no higher, however, with just five 
laps left and finished a noble but 
disappointed fifth. 

With Bradl sixth and Cardus 
seventh, Ruggia stopped his climb 
at eighth, with Shimizu fading to 
ninth. 

Cornu was 10th, troubled by poor 
tires (also Dunlops, a disastrous 
meeting for the Anglo-Japanese 
firm) and pain from his Swedish 
collarbone injury; Herweh was 11th, 
prevailing in the end over Auinger 
and Eckl; the last points went to 
Caracchi and McLeod. 

In the championship, the top three 
remained the same: Pons 231, Gar- 
riga 221, Cornu 167; but Sarron 
moved.to fourth ahead of Roth. 
Although both on 158 points, Sarron 
has two race wins and Roth none. €

1988 AMA/Wiseco/Suzuki Grand National 
Cross Country Series: Round 7 





Lojak wins 
Buckeye GNC

MARIETTA, OH, SEPT. 10 


Team Husqvarna's Ed Lojak captured the 
overall win at the seventh round of the 
AMA/Wiseco/Suzuki Grand National 


Cross Country Series, 


winner Scott Summers and 
250cc champ Scott Plessinger 
by more than a minute. For the 
Smith/Metzeler/Hi-Point- 


backed Lojak it was his third series 
win in the past four rounds, which 
allowed him to gain on points leader 
Plessinger in the standings. Fourth 
overall on the day in Ohio was Barr's 
Comp/Scott USA rider Steve Mc- 
Swain, while Yamaha pilot Duane 
Conner placed fifth. 

More than 180 riders were in 
attendance for the first time running 
of the Buckeye. The competitors 
were greeted by a dry and rough trail 
that seemed certain to take its toll 
on the pack. By the end of the two- 
and-a-half hour run shortened by 30 
minutes due to a restart, even the top 
riders were riding at less than full 
speed. 

“That was a deceiving course," 
said the Smith/Tsubaki/Maier/ 
Dunlop/O'Neal-backed Plessinger. 
“By the time the race was over, both 
of my legs were cramping from the 
ruts, and we didn't even run the full 
amount of time." The race was 
organized by the Pioneer Motorcycle 
Club of Waterford, Ohio. 

The restart came on the heels of 
an on-track error by several of the 
front-runners. After the Open, 250, 
200cc and Senior A classes left the 
starting line from their respective 
rows the overall leaders missed a 
course addition near the three-mile 
mark that cut off nearly 15 minutes 
of the designated nine mile loop. 
When officials realized the marking 
problems they decided to restart the 
race, while most of the A class riders 





besting Open A 
were in the midst of a second lap. 
After some remarking and a brief 
riders’ meeting it was decided that no 
one would be penalized and that the 
entire race would be started again 
with a two hour time limit rather 
than the usual three hour race. When 
the leaders crossed the line after four 
laps just before the two hour mark 
they were sent back out for another 
lap, pushing stopwatches close to 
two-and-a-half hours before the 
checkered flag fell. 

The race did not look like it was 
going to belong to Lojak the whole 
time, though. When the A class pack 
rounded the first lap barrels after the 
first full 25 minute lap it was North 
Carolina's McSwain out front 
aboard the CR500 Honda with West 
Virginia’s Tim Shephard, PJ1/Al 
Baker’s XR’s Only/Scott-backed 
Summers aboard a Sportstown USA 
of Radcliffe, Kentucky 600cc Honda, 
Ohio KTM pilot Wally Wilson, and 
250cc A class leader Gene O’Nail 
following. Lojak was all the way 
back in 10th place, two spots ahead 
of the KX250-mounted Plessinger. 

When the 200cc A class ap- 
proached the first lap check it was 
BT Racing/Gear/KMX Kawasaki 
rider David Fallas leading the way 
with Coombs with Pennsylvania 
Yamaha riders Don Bigley and Craig 
Jones trailing along with Ohio's Joe 
Krivesti and Cagiva pilot Mike 
McCarren. Fallas would lead 
Coombs for the first hour, but 
uneven pitstops for the leaders 
allowed Coombs some breathing 
room on the BT Racing/Dave Poole- 
prepped CR125 and he made his 
getaway. Fallas pursued to the flag 














Husqvarna rider Ed Lojak took his third overall win in the past four 
National cross country races. Lojak was the overall winner in Ohio. 





but came up a couple.minutes short. 
Jones was another three minutes 
back in third with Bigley and Kri- 
vesti coming across the line in the 
fourth and fifth place positions. 

Kentucky's Carey Stump and Pen- 
nsylvania ATK rider Tom Meyers 
had less difficult rides in earning 
their first place trophies. Stump 
thumped along in the top 15 overall 
to put a lap up on class runner-up 
Charles Dailey, while Meyers was 
able to move past the checkers several 
minutes ahead of the Yamaha- 
mounted Lojak. It was Meyers' first 
series win of the year, while Stump 
all but locked up the Four-Stroke 
title with his sixth win in seven 
rounds. 

"Things were still looking bad up 
front for Lojak. Nearly an hour into 
the race the defending National 
champ was still in eighth place 
overall, having come across the check 
point two seconds behind Plessinger, 
who was up to seventh. McSwain was 
still having the run of the place, now 
more than 50 seconds up on the 
second-place Shephard. Summers 
remained third, while Wilson held 
on to fourth ahead of number five 
rider Kevin Brown, the top 250cc 
thus far. 

At this point Summers began to 
attack on the massive XR600, closing 
the 20-second gap Shephard held on 
him to inherit second. By the next 
lap check he closed in on McSwain 
to within 25 seconds, though She- 
phard was keeping close to 
Summers. Lojak and Plessinger 
exploded across the check in fourth 
and fifth overall, still less than five 
seconds off of each other's pace. 
Brown, aboard a borrowed YZ250, 
had dropped a notch to sixth, one 
minute up on seventh place rider 
Conner. Wilson had been relegated 
to eighth-position after a pit stop. 

As the overall front-runners came 
into sight for the white flag it was 
still McSwain out front, holding 
onto the 30 second lead he had on 
Summers. Had the race ended at that 
point McSwain might have had his 
first-ever series overall win, but the 





leader had the misfortune of coming 
into the check before the two hour 
limit and was thus sent back out for 
another loop. McSwain was obvious- 
ly tiring, having given the race his 
all in the hopes of maintaining the 
overall position, and shortly into the 
final lap he was passed by both 
Summers and Lojak, who had by 
now made up the one minute stagger 
from his second row start. Neverthe- 
less, Lojak pushed past Summers as 
well and crossed the checkered flag 
ahead of everyone. Summers came in 
40 seconds ahead of McSwain with 
Plessinger lessthan a minute behind, 
giving him third overall on the day 
and the 250cc A class win after overall 
leader Lojak was taken out of the 
class rankings. Conner was next 
across the finish for fifth overall and 
the runner-up 250cc ride. Brown, 
Shephard, Husqvarna-mounted 
Mark Hyde, Wilson, and Coombs 
rounded out the top 10 overall. e

Tyson Vohland (4) and Jim Holley (28) duel for the lead during the first 
heat race at the Mickey Thompson Off-Road Championship Grand Prix. 





A.J. Whiting (17) took the early lead in the main event. More than 27,000 
spectators watched from inside Denver's Mile High Stadium. 








Mickey Thompson Off-Road 
Championship Gran Prix: Round 7 





By Mike Larson 


DENVER, CO, SEPT. 17 


Vohland victorious 
in Denver 


Kawasaki Team Green rider Tyson Vohland 
picked up his second Ultracross main event 
win in a row at the Mickey Thompson Off- 
Road Championship Gran Prix at Mile 


High Stadium. Vohland led a 
Kawasaki sweep of the first 
three spots in the main event 
as fellow Team Green riders 
Denny Stephenson and brother 
Tallon: Vohland filled out the rest 
of the top three. 

Tyson had to come from a mid- 
pack starting spot, then had to duel 
with Stephenson before taking the 
lead on lap eight of the 10-lap event. 





A crowd of more than 27,000 
turned out for the MTGP event, 
which was the first motorsports event 
in Mile High Stadium in some time. 
As always, the motorcycle racing got 
the most response from the crowd, 
with a little help from announcer 
Larry Naston. 

Jim Marostica had the lead early 
in the first heat race, but his lead 
was short-lived, as Kawasaki/Arai/ 
Hi-Point/Sprocket  specialists/ 








Tyson Vohland's younger brother Tallon won his heat race and finished - 
third in the main event behind Denny Stephenson. 





Scott/Maxima-backed Tyson Voh- 
land came charging to the front on 
lap two, followed closely by series 
points leader Jim Holley. Stephen- 
son, who was the fast qualifier in 
this heat race, started back in 10th 
but had rocketed up to third and was 
within striking distance of the lead 
duo. 

Vohland continued to lead 
through laps three and four, with 
Yamaha/ Accurate Racing/O'Neal- 
backed Holley zeroing in on the 
Kawasaki rider. Holley was within 
a couple bike lengths of Vohland, 
but couldn't find an opening. 

Vohland and Holley continued to 
run in close formation through lap 
five, then on lap six Vohland used 


some of the lapped traffic to put some 


distance on Holley and was able to 
hold a small cushion on Yamaha- 
mounted Holley to the finish. Ste- 
phenson rode a steady race in third 
and finished a comfortable distance 
in front of fourth place finisher Tim 
Buchli. 

Robert Hanrahan jetted into the 
lead on lap one in the second heat, 
while his fellow front row starter 
Mark Simmons crashed in turn one, 
taking A.J. Whiting and a couple 
other riders with him.  Tallon 
Vohland wasted no time making his 
way to the front of the pack. Before 
the end of lap one, he had Hanrahan 
in his sights. 

just after the start of lap two, 
Kawasaki/Arai/Hi-Point/Sprocket 
Specialists/Scott/Maxima/DMC/ 
Tsubaki/Race Tech-supported Voh- 
land blasted into the lead. Hanrahan 
soon had his hands full with the 
challenging of Corey Cope and 
Bryan Emig, who both got by on lap 
three. 

Vohland had little trouble pulling 
away to a comfortable lead by lap 
four, while Cope held second. 
Kawasaki-mounted Emig lost third 
on the fourth lap to Yamaha pilot 
Jeff Mabery. 

Vohland began to lap the slower 
riders in the field on lap five, but 
by this time he had built up a good 
sized-lead and he cruised to the 





checkered flag for the win. Cope 
maintained a safe second, while 
Mabery and. Jason Upshaw had a 
battle through the final lap, with 
Mabery just edging Upshaw at the 
checkered flag for third. 

Answer/Scott-backed Whiting 
took the lead from his front row start 
in the 10-lap main event, but Kawa- 
saki/Malcolm Smith/Scott/PJ1/ 
DMC/Bell/Tsubaki-backed Ste- 
phenson turned in another rocket 
performance as he zipped through 
the pack into second by lap two. 
Stephenson briefly passed Whiting 
for the lead, but Whiting retaliated 
and repassed Stephenson at the start 
of lap three. 

Stephenson was still on the attack, 
however, and zapped Whiting for the 
lead just before the end of lap three. 
Tyson Vohland also slipped by 
Whiting to take the second place spot 
shortly after Stephenson got past. 

Stephenson and Tyson continued 
to hold the top two slots through the 
next three laps and ran within afew 
bike lengths of each other the whole 
time, while Tallon had moved by 
Whiting into the third place slot. 

The battle for the lead heated up 
on lap. seven as Stephenson and 
Tyson did a little bar-banging, but 
Stephenson hung tough and fought 
off the challenges from Tyson. 
Tyson regrouped and came back for 
another attack on lap eight, this time 
he sailed by Stephenson going over 
the finish line jump. 

At the beginning of lap 10 the top 
five riders were Tyson Vohland, 
Stephenson, Tallon Vohland, Whit- 
ing and Holley. Stephenson was still 
within striking distance of Tyson, 
but Tallon had closed the gap on 
Stephenson. 

Tyson took the win and threw in 
a stylish no-hander over the finish 
line jump, while Stephenson man- 
aged to hold off Tallon for second. 
Holley passed Whiting on the = 
lap for fourth place.

WERA Tsubaki/GS Battery National Endurance Road Race Series: Round 11 
Vance & Hines 
takes third straight 











Vance & Hines’ Peter Carroll handles the riding chores Sunday at dawn. 
The team took the lead during the 23rd hour and never looked back. 





By Brian Catterson 


ROSAMOND, CA, SEPT. 17-18 


Team Vance & Hines Motorcycle Centers 
used precision riding, excellent pit work, 
a reliable Suzuki GSXR750 and, maybe, a 
little luck to win their third straight Coors 


Light WERA 24-Hour West at 
Willow Springs International 
Raceway. 

The six-rider. team, consist- 
ing of Vance & Hines-sponsored 
racers Randy Renfrow and Peter 
Carroll, Motorcyclist magazine edi- 
tors Mitch Boehm and Nick Ienatsch, 
plus Joe Pittman and Dave Zirkle, 
overcame seemingly insurmountable 
odds, surviving an early crash, a one- 
lap penalty and a protest. The team 
turned in 842 laps of the 2.5-mile, 
nine-turn road course, completing 
2105 miles at an average speed of 87.7 
mph. In addition to Vance & Hines 
Motorcycle Centers, the team is 
sponsored by Pirelli, Fram, Autolite, 
Bel-Ray, Bates, Bell, Ohlins and RK 
Chain. 








Team Vance & Hines' good for- 
tune was most apparent during the 
23rd hour when The Human Race 
Team, leaders since the 14th hour, 
suddenly pitted with an overheating 
motor. Team Captain Dave Zupan 
frantically added water to the 
Yamaha FZR1000 and sent rider Kurt 
Hall back out, but the bike ran badly 
and the best Hall could do was 1:50- 
plus lap times. Vance & Hines’ 
Carroll, turning 1:34s, made up the 
two-lap disadvantage, relegating the 
Humans to second, then handed off 
to Pittman who crüised home to a 
12-lap advantage at the checkered 
flag. 

"It should have been a 23-hour 
race," quipped the Humans' Andy 
Fenwick in the winner's circle. Aside 
from being rammed once and break- 











ing a shift lever (which cost them 
five minutes in the pits), the 
Humans, leaders in the WERA point 
standings, ran a flawless race. Hall 
and Fenwick were joined by local 
rider Tony Atwater and Canadian 
Ben Martinez. Usual team rider Tim 
Morrissey sat out the race, instead 
working in the pits. The Human 
Race Team is sponsored by Fox, 
Klotz, Metzeler, Megacycle, Tape- 
works, Lakeshore Harley-Yamaha, 
and Tsubaki. 

"We were lucky," said Vance & 
Hines’ Boehm later, “But you have 
to be right there in case something 
happens to the leaders; we were there 
when it counted." 

“That was a gift," said Vance & 
Hines Team Captain Dennis Smith 
after scoring his fourth consecutive 
win in this event. His Torrance, 
California, shop's team (called Cycle 
Tune before becoming a Vance & 
Hines Motorcycle Center) also won 
the 1985 24-Hours, and the few fans 
in attendance were disappointed to 
see that Smith wouldn't be taking 
the checkered flag for the team. 
Reportedly, he'd tested the Pirelli 
MP7 Sport tires preceding the race 
and was uncomfortable with the 
bike’s ergonomics, and did not even 
enter as a rider. So much for 
tradition... 

The Humans’ despair wasn’t the 
only time Vance & Hines were lucky. 
A second-hour crash by Renfrow 
boded ill for the southern California- 
based team, dropping them to 32nd 
overall, but a red flag for an unre- 
lated incident shortly thereafter 
resulted in a net loss of just eight 
laps. 

"We would have fixed it just as 
fast if there hadn't been a red flag," 
said crew chief Bill Foster, adding 
jokingly, “We just wouldn't have 
done as good a job.” 

The red flag flew when Ichi Bon 
Racing threw a rod through the cases 
of their Honda Hurricane, dumping 
oil at the transition between turns 
seven and eight. Coming around to 
complete the lap, Team Suzuki's 
Jamie James hit the oil and threw 
it away spectacularly, the team’s 
GSXR1100 clearing the trackside 
ambulance. Kurt Heppe of Team 
Lips, eighth overall and leading the 
Mediumweight Superbike class at 
the time, also dropped his team’s 
Honda Hurricane there. Both Heppe 





and James were transported to 
Antelope Valley Hospital where it 
was reported that James had suffered 
a broken collarbone and an initially 
worrisome bruised and swollen 
forehead. Both riders were treated 
and released. 

The crash was especially unfortu- 
nate for National Champions Team 
Suzuki, since they. didn’t have to be 
here after winning the 24 Hours of 
Nelson Ledges. According to Team 
Captain John Ulrich, there was. a 
“potential for more points here; 
there were several red flags at Nelson 
Ledges and this track is faster." 
WERA’s system awards points based 
on mileage completed, plus bonus 
points, so a team could theoretically 
rack up more points at Willow 
Springs. Team Suzuki accumulated 
1752 miles at an average speed of just 
73 mph at Nelson Ledges. 

Third place went to Fastline 
Racing consisting of local riders Jeff 
Stern, Bob Reinen, Chris Steward, 
Curtis Adams, Jeff Rheaume and 
Ray Adams. The team completed 828 
laps on Stern's Suzuki GSXR750, 
coming just two laps short of passing 
the Human Race Team for second 
overall. Fastline is sponsored by 
Kerker, Spectro, Daeco, Dunlop, 
Mark Matzinger, Barnett, APA 
Trucking. 

Immediately after the race, Fas- 
tline Racing filed a protest against 
Vance & Hines for allegedly making 
up nine laps in one hour, but a 
review by track officials uncovered 
no scoring discrepancies and the 
results stood. Even if the protest had 
been upheld, the results would not 
have changed, since Vance & Hines 
would still have been three | laps 
ahead of the second-place Humans. 
"Its the principle of the thing,” 
exclaimed the Fastline Racing crew. 
“The big money teams think they 
can walk all over us.” 

Vance & Hines' other off-track 
trouble occured when they were 
docked a lap for not having a fire 
extinguisher with the pin pulled 
over the wall during a pit stop. This 
was the only flaw in an otherwise 
perfect performance by the well- 
organized crew. 

Fourth place overall, on the same 
lap as Fastline Racing, was the Kayo 
Racing Yamaha FZR1000 ridden by 
Donnie Rowe, Tommy Sloan, Mark 
Heiser, Jim Tribou, and local hot- 
shots Sean Nicoloff and Richard 
Moore. Moore, who rode for Vance 
& Hines here last year, led the first 
few laps of the race, but an off-track 
excursion during the early Sunday 
morning hours by Nicoloff dropped 
them back to sixth. Nicoloff earned 
an ambulance ride to the hospital, 
where he was treated and released. 
Kayo Racing is sponsored by Kayo 
Corp., D.I.D , Yokohama, GS Battery, 
Arai, Spectro, Solar Tool and Die, 
White Bros., and Racing Radios. 

Fifth place overall (first team not 
in the Heavyweight Superbike class) 
and first in Mediumweight Produc- 
tion fell to Team Cycle Racer spon- 
sored by Cycle Racer, Dunlop, 
Alpinestar, Trend, PJ]. Brothers Al 
and Joe Salvo teamed up with Earl 
Roloff, the winningest club racer in 
America, Ben Williams, Burke Steed 
and Tom Chatterton on a Honda 
CBR600 Hurricane to complete 798 
laps. They were also joined by Team 
Suzuki member Wes Cooley after 
James' race-ending crash. Cooley, 
who turned 1:31s here at night last 
year on an 1100, turned 1:36s in the 
dark this year on a 600. 

"Cooley went by me in turn nine, 
sliding both ends," exclaimed Vance 
& Hines’ Boehm. “I swear!" 

“Theoretically, you should be able 
to go faster. at night," explained 
Cooley, calmly. “The air is cooler 
so the bike ruris better, and the tires 

















Vance & Hines’ NASCAR-like pit stops played a key role in their effort, 
changing tires and refueling faster than many teams swapped riders. 





don’t overheat. And ol’ Wes doesn’t 
get as hot, either.” 

Cooley’s presence on the team and 
night-riding ability was an asset to 
the Cycle Racer effort, as Roloff 
refuses to race at night. “I’ve got a 
wife and two kids,” he said. “I don't 
want to take any foolish chances.” 

This year’s fast night-riding award 
goes to Hyper-Cycle’s Carry 
Andrew, who turned 1:31s on his 
GSXR1100. Andrew ran up front at 
the start of the race, but pitted with 
a flat tire and dropped a lap. After 
the red flag, James Domay imme- 
diately shot from fifth to first place 
on the track (though still a lap down) 
and diced with Cycle World's Doug 
Toland for the on-track lead. Toland 
got around -Domay in traffic at one 
point, but Domay turned up the 
boosters and jetted off into the 
distance. Hyper-Cycle regulars 
Andrew and Domay were joined by 
Kenny Kopecky, Chuck Magnusson 
and newcomer Paul Deavin, who 
crashed in turn five during his first 
stint and was sent to the showers. 

The plan was for Kopecky and 
Magnusson to do most of the night 
riding, saving Domay for a last-ditch 
effort in the morning. And on 
Sunday morning, Domay awoke, 
sprinting to the pits and shouting, 
“There’s nothing like waking up to 
150 mph!” He then went out and 
turned a series of 1:29 lap times, 
clearly establishing himself as the 
fastest rider of the weekend. Domay 
| pitted at 8:00 a.m., handing off to 
Andrew, who then crashed in turn 
four after being told by crewman 
Karl Paul that he needed new tires. 
Andrew remounted and rode back to 
the pits, changed tires, and promptly 
crashed again in turn two, ending 
their race. 

Two coming-out-of-retirement 
riders did their parts to help with 
their respective teams’ efforts. Mal- 
colm Hill teamed up with Kress 
Racing’s Phil Kress, Paul Vogel, 
Barry Burke and Richard Arnaiz on 
a Yamaha FZR1000. The team 
worked up to third place by nightfall 
before succumbing to transmission 
problems at 4:00 a.m. Kress was 
competing in just his second race 
since breaking some ribs and suffer- 
inga collapsed lung at the Mid-Ohio 
National and was experiencing 
difficulty holding on. He rode with 
another rider standing by at all times 
in case he came in early, which he 
did. 

Burke collapsed in the pits after 
his first ride, saying, with a beet-red 
face, “Its so hot out there you 
wouldn't believe it.” 

"It's a little different than Formula 
USA," joked Kress. 





Toland was one of the fastest riders 
on the track on the Team Cycle 
World Suzuki, turning more than his 
fair share of the total laps. Former 
Team Suzuki tuner Jim Labine 
prepared the last-minute bike, a 1988 
Suzuki GSXR750 with a.GSXR1100 
motor, in just a week, pulling a 
couple of all-nighters. The team, 
made up of Toland, plus Cycle 
World magazine’s Paul Dean, David 
Edwards and Greg Blackwell, and 
Australian David Luthje, led the 
early stages of the event, but a crash 
at dawn’s early light by the Aussie 
ended their day. 

Cycle World magazine editor Steve 
Anderson, who arrived to spectate 
just prior to the crash (“They were 
leading when I called."), explained 
that a push pin for an aircraft-style 
quick-release brake caliper mount 
broke, causing the caliper to fall off 
approaching turn one (one of the 
strongest braking points at the 
track). With no brakes and nowhere 
to go, Luthje ran staight off, man- 
gling the bike beyond repair and 
concussing himself sufficiently for a 
mandatory trip to the hospital. The 
team had also suffered a bout with 
a loose exhaust pipe, a remote shock 
preload adjuster that fell off, and a 
thrown chain. The latter incident, 
which occured just before dawn 
while Dean was at the top of the hill, 
dropped them to third place as the 
bike and rider were brought in on 
the crash truck. 

Solmax Racing USA had a disap- 
pointing weekend. Usual team star 
Scott Russell opted to miss this 
round in favor of competing at a 
West Palm Beach, Florida, round of 
the Suzuki GSXR Cup Series. 
According to Team Captain Cindy 
Bowen, “Scott races for a living, so 
he's off making money." 

Solmax had plenty of problems, 
including a thrown chain just before 
nightfall -while leaving the pits, a 
countershaft sprocket that fell off on 
Sunday morning that cost them 15 
minutes, and a crash by Terry Bailey 
at night. They eventually broke in 
the pit lane when the bike overheated 
and ran low on oil, dumping oil in 
the hot pit and forcing track workers 
to lay down track sweep. 

Solmax was joined by multi-time 
F-2 National champ Donnie Greene, 
whose right wrist bothered him after 


. riding seven times, once coming into 


the pits after riding 55 minutes to 
replace a burnt-out tailight bulb, 
then going back out for another hour 
because none of the other riders had 
their leathers on. "I was delirious 
after that," he said. 

Another Solmax rider with prob- 











The Human Race Team (2) led most of the race until suffering mechanical 
difficulties; they still finished second. Kayo Racing (3) took fourth. 











The Vance & Hines crew celebrated with a victory lap in the bed of 
a pickup truck, and then with hors d'oeuvres in the winner's circle. 





lems was Kevin Rentzell, who'd 
forgotten his glasses and rode the 
entire race without them, including 
at night. "I was riding blind," he 
said. "I'd just aim for the reflective 
tape (which lined the outside of the 
turns) and try to turn inside it.” 

The Mediumweight Superbike 
class was a real barnburner. Cagiva 
North America’s Duane Summers, 
riding for Beaumont Cycle Racing, 
held the early lead on a Ducati F- 
1, complete with a two-and-a-half- 
gallon auxiliary fuel tank fitted 
beneath the rear seat cowling. They 
suffered through some crashes, and 
a peculiar incident which saw 
Summers run out of gas, take to the 
dirt to push the bike back to the pits, 
then fall into a hole in the dark, 
breaking off a clip-on. They also had 
problems with a loose seat, a broken 
headlight mounting bracket and 
steering damper, and à smashed 
exhaust pipe. Team Captain Tim 
Pennell did a good job of repairing 
all the damage, but a spun flywheel 
key put a halt to their effort in the 
21st hour, 240 laps in arrears. 

With Beaumont and Lips out of 
the race, Jim Williams Racing 
inherited the Mediumweight lead, 
but their Suzuki Katana dropped out 
during the eighth hour with a broken 
valve spring. This cleared the way 
for the Spinlads, who put a lock on 
the Meduimweight Superbike class. 
Peter Smith, Peter Hively, Matt 
Harrold and Steve Rodden took the 
class win and sixth overall on their 
Hurricane, completing 780 laps. 
They received help from Dunlop, 
Mark Matzinger, Kal-Gard, Shoei, 
Lockhart, Performance Design. 

The Heavyweight Production 
class was won by Dunlop/Castrol- 
sponsored Team Wanker. Riders 
Tim Saunders, Ken Even, Jeff 
McCade, Scott Anderson, Shannon 








Criss, Dane Roberti and Joanne 
Thede completed 767 laps on their 
GSXR750, finishing seventh overall. 

Vitesse Racing was the Light- 
weight class winners, ninth overall, 
completing 763 laps on a Yamaha 
FZR400. Team riders included 
Carole LeGall, Jim Jepsen, David 
Walden, Kevin McConnell, and 
James Williams. Their only problem 
was a petcock that fell off Sunday 
morning while Le Gall was riding. 
They’re sponsored by Jim Williams, 
Frame Man, Berkeley Yamaha,

“This is a good boost for all the 
guys from all the Vance & Hines 
stores," said Ron Foster, brother.of 
crew chief Bill Foster. "Some of us 
work on the race team all year and 
some of us don’t. 

“This is our fourth, year," he 
added. ‘“The odds get a little tougher 
every year." e

Larry Roeseler piloted his Kawasaki KX250 to the overall win at the 
Sandwash Basin National Hare & Hound in Colorado. 








AMA National Championship Hare & Hound 


Series: Round 6 


Roeseler edges Smith 
in Colorado thriller 


By Kit Palmer

MAYBELL, CO, SEPT. 11 


On a course that was described by riders 
as wide open, fast, not very technical, and 
even spooky, Team Green’s Larry Roeseler 
did the unexpected at the Sandwash Basin 


National Hare & Hound — he 
won the overall on a 250. 
Riding a Kawasaki KX250, 
Roeseler captured the overall 
victory on a course that would’ve 
seemed to favor the more powerful 
Open class bikes. The Malcolm 
Smith Racing/Dunlop/Scott/Tsu- 
baki/Renthal/Bell-sponsored rider 
edged the Husqvarna 500XC- 
mounted, defending National Hare 
& Hound Champion Dan Smith by 
a scant eight seconds after 101 miles 
-of racing. Roeseler finished the race 
in two hours and 31 minutes, aver- 
aging 43.7 miles per hour, over 
mostly maintained county and old 
access roads in the Colorado desert. 


Another big surprise was third- 


place finisher Malcolm Smith 
Racing-sponsored Fritz Kadlec. 
Kadlec, who's made his name known 
as one of America's top enduro and 
hare scrambles rider, had never 
ridden a hare and hound before in 
his life, and he was aboard another 
250. 

The Yamaha Y2250 rider from 
Colorado said afterwards, “It was 
a pretty fun race, and I've never done 
one of these befote. It was fast, wide 
open in fifth gear for miles and miles. 
There weren't many technical trails, 
mostly: wide open dirt roads. My 
biggest problem was that I didn't 
gear my bike right." 

Fourth overall went to Boise 
Honda's Todd Peugh, who was 
riding a CR500, while Napa, Idaho's, 
Curtis Dice, who was riding a 
Cadwell Honda-backed CR500, took 
fifth. Sixth went to another Idaho 
rider from Caldwell, Team Green/ 


l 8 Maxima/Pirelli/EP Performs/Bell/ 





Acerbis-sponsored Reed Bright, who 
was riding a KX250. He was followed 
by Husky’s Garth Sweetland, Team 
Green/O'Neal/Metzeler-backed 
Grant Palenske, Yamaha's Dan 
Ashcraft and Dave Zehner. 

Roeseler's overall and 250cc class 
victory moves him into a points tie 
with Yamaha/Pro-Circuit/JT Rac- 
ing/Dunlop/F&L Fuel-sponsored 
Ashcraft, who almost didn't ride the 
event because of an injured foot. 
Smith, sponsored by Cagiva North 
America, Gold Belt, Scott USA, 
Autolite, Arai, Alpine Stars Maxima, 
Metzeler, Tsubaki, Acerbis, Ren- 
thall, F&L Racing Fuel, Z-Racing, 
took the 500cc class win, while 
Yamaha rider John Braasch topped 
the 125s. Yamaha rider Kenny Parry 
captured the Vet class win, while top 
Senior was Dave Kersting. 

The Sandwash Basin National 
Hare & Hound, hosted by the Little 
Snake Motorcycle Club, featured two 
loops equaling 101 miles. The first 
loop totaled 54 miles, the second 47. 

A moderate turnout of 88 riders 
lined the 8 a.m. start in six separate 
rows. The first row featured the 250cc 
and Open Experts. 


When the banner dropped, Peugh 
nailed the holeshot, while Hunnicut 
was close behind. Smith, on the other 
hand, played "chicken" with a 
spectator. 

“She was standing on the bomb 
run right on my line watching the 
other racers,” said Smith. “I couldn't 
get her attention. I was heading right 
at her in third gear and she finally 
saw me coming. I changed lines to 
avoid hitting her, but she jumped 
right into my path trying to get away. 








Defending National Champion Dan Smith finished second overall on 
his Husky 500XC, just eight seconds behind winner Roeseler. 





It got real exciting. I had to put on 
my brakes, and that really pissed me 
off." 

Peugh, who had the holeshot, 
became involved in mass confusion 
when the first section of the course 


‘made a few sharp switchbacks, and 


some of the back riders cut some of 
the course and moved into Peugh's 
path, slowing his progress. Then, 
about a mile later, the course led the 
riders into a ditch that some riders 
didn't see, although it was marked. 


“Two guys had crashed in the 


ditch and I inherited the lead," said 
Smith. 
One of those riders was Hunnicut, 
who injured his knee in the fall. 
“Yeah, there was this big gully, 
and it was dusty,” said Kadlec. “I 


didn't even see the ditch and Larry: 


(Roeseler) and I just flew right over, 
wondering where the ground went. 
There were bikes flying in the air 
and cartwheeling everywhere." 

“Hunnicut was up front and there 
was a six-foot ditch," said’ Ashcraft. 
“Tt was marked, but it was dusty, and 
I guess Hunnicut didn’t clear it. I 
saw three guys down. Larry. passed 
me just before the ditch." 

After the first two miles, Smith 
found himself in the lead, with 
Roeseler close behind in second and 
Peugh third. From this point on, it 
pretty much became a two-man dice 
down to the finish between Smith 
and Roeseler, while Peugh, Dice and 
Kadlec battled over third, fourth and 
fifth. Back in the pack was KX250- 
mounted Bright after a three-kick 
start. 

“Just after the ditch, we headed out 
on wide-open dirt roads, and I was 
about fourth, but both Larry and 
Dan were long gone," said Kadlec. 
“They were so far ahead, I didn't 
even see their dust.” 

Ashcraft was running near the 
front before Kadlec passed the YZ490 
pilot. “I think he (Ashcraft) hurt 
himself," said Kadlec. 

"| broke two toes and tore off a 
toenail Saturday while practicing," 
said Aschraft. "My foot hit a tree 
stump and I was hurting pretty bad. 
I had to borrow a size 12 boot from 
Hunnicut to ride. It was hurting 
pretty bad." 

Up front, Smith was still leading 
Roeseler, but when they came into 
the tighter sandwash sections, Roe- 
seler immediately gained on Smith, 
then passed him for the lead. 

"I was leading for three quarters 
of the first loop, then in the tight, 
twisty sandwash, he caught and 
passed me," said Smith. “I fell down 
once, but it was no big deal." 

Near the end of the loop, Smith 
had to fuel up at the alternate gas 
stop, but Roeseler's 250 used less gas 
and had no problems making to the 





first gas without pitting. Smith lost 
about 10 seconds to Roeseler. 

Heading into-the first gas, Roe- 
seler maintained a 10-second advan- 
tage over Smith, despite an ailing 
hand — after it was smashed by a 
rock. ' 

However, in the pits, Smith 
noticed that a bolt had backed out 
of his silencer mount and the silencer 
was about ready to fall off. 

“We had to fix the silencer mount, 
and that cost us a lot of time," said 
Smith. “Leaving the pits, I was one 
minute and 19 seconds behind 
Larry." 

When Ashcraft reached the pits 
back in 14th place, he was contem- 
plating quitting. “I was in fourth 
before we got to the sandwashes, and 
it was mostly virgin trails and rocks, 
and I couldn’t put my foot down. 
I was ready to quit in the pits, but 
my dad convinced me to keep 
going." 

Kadlec, meanwhile, was stuck in 
a fierce battle with Peugh and Dice. 
“He (Peugh) would pull me in the 
open, but I would catch him in the 
sandwashes,”’ said Kadlec. “We diced 
for the next 50 miles." 

At one point, the three riders were 
so close that when Peugh fell once, 
both Kadlec and Dice ran over his 
bike. 

As the race progressed, Smith 
began reeling in Roeseler. “I caught 
up to him within 10 miles of the 
finish, and we diced for the rest of 
the race. We didn't pass back and 
forth, or anything, but we were 
having fun," said Smith. 

Roeseler said he was having prob- 
lems with the clutch slipping on his 
Kawasaki, but soon found out that 
it was the clutch adjustment coming 
lose, causing it to slip. Roeseler 
solved the problem and continued 
on. 

Smith chased Roeseler right down 
to the finish but had to stop at an 
alternate gas and came up eight 
seconds short of Roeseler at the 
checkered flag, while Kadlec got the 
upperhand on Peugh and Dice. 

Bright made a gamble of riding 
through the alternate gas pay off. 
The gamble gave him the chance to 
dice with Sweetland. The two riders 
traded places three times during the 
final loop, until Bright passed him 
for good, nabbing sixth. Sweetland 
took seventh just ahead of Palenske. 

Ashcraft, who managed to pass 
five riders on the last loop, crossed 
the finish line in ninth. “I’m happy 
with the race, at least I hung on, and 
I'm tied with Roeseler." e

CMC Dodge Truck Trans-Cal Series: 


Round 2 


Young, Davis, 
Fisher conquer 
Sandhill dust-bowl 


By Ken Faught 


STOCKTON, CA, SEPT. 18 


"I'm charged," said Yamaha’s Chris Young 
right after winning the 125cc Pro class 
overall. “I got real sick just before Ponca 


three weeks. This is only the 
second time I’ve raced since 
Mammoth (two and a half 
months ago).”’ 

Suzuki's Ty Davis and Kawasaki's 
Mike Fisher were the other big 
winners of the day at Sandhill 
Ranch. Davis used a perfect 1-1 score 
to better Steve Lamson's 2-3 and Ron 
Turner’s 4-4 for the overall in the 
250cc Pro class, as Fisher claimed the 
500cc Pro win with his 1-2 perfor- 
mance after battling with Joey 
Schlag. 

Dry weather, along with silty dirt 
that resisted water, made for some 





City and was in and out of the hospital for 


of the worst possible racing condi- 
tions as dust plagued the day's event. 
Throughout the weekend, CMC 


officials tried everything to keep the : 


dust down but nothing worked. 
“It’s a joke," said Vet Pro class 
winner Ron Turner, one of several 
riders upset about track conditions. 
“It wouldn't bother me none if they 
conceled and we all went home." 
First moto action in the 125cc Pro 
class saw Cagiva's Mike Young gate 
perfectly to lead Kyle Lewis, Danny 
Paladino, Kerry Mulligan and Lam- 
son into the first turn, which claimed 
several victims during the course of 
the day. Chris Young, who gated

seventh, quickly worked his way into 
third before the pack came around 
to complete the first lap. As the riders 
started on the lap two, Lewis found 
himself with the lead after Mike 
Young crashed his way back to third 
behind Chris Young. Paladino was 
fourth with Randy Moody fifth. 

Ryan Hughes and Davis also 
suffered from poor starts but had 
worked their way into sixth and 
seventh by the third lap. The pair 
soon moved up one more position 
as Moody dropped to eighth. 

Near the halfway point, Davis 
reeled in Hughes, creating a dogfight 
for the number five slot. As Davis 
pressured Hughes, the two riders 
slowly began catching Paladino in 
fourth. 

Up front, Lewis opened up a 
comfortable four-second lead as 
Mike Young closed in on Chris 
Young. The duo, who are not 
related, battled intensely with Chris 
Young consistently enjoying the 
upper hand. 

With only two laps remaining, 
Paladino crashed hard in fourth, but 
quickly got up without losing a 
position. As Paladino restarted, 
Davis managed to sneak around 
Hughes. 

Once in fifth, Davis set his sights 
on Paladino. While Lewis took the 
win over Chris and Mike Young, 
Davis dropped Paladino to fifth. 

Second moto action saw Paladino 
pull the holeshot with Mulligan, 
Scott Brown, Davis and Phil Law- 
rence hot on his tail. Lewis and Mike 
Young got tangled up with nine 
other riders in the first turn and were 
delayed almost five seconds. 

On top, Chris Young wasted no 
time in displacing Paladino to 
second and soon held a small lead. 

As Young worked to expand his 
lead, all eyes were focused on Davis, 
who was setting a blistering pace 
toward the front. As the top five 
started to spread themselves out, 
Davis picked off riders one by one. 
With a little more than a lap remain- 
ing, the Suzuki pilot advanced 
himself to the second place spot, 
almost 50 yards behind the leader. 
Within a few turns, Davis had cut 
Young's lead to nothing and fiercely 
challenged for the lead. When the 
pair greeted the white flag, Davis 
dove under Young for the point 
position. Young tried to repass Davis 
on the uphill, but his pass didn't 
work. “He just out-horsepowered me 
on the uphill," said the Yamaha/ 
Answer/Cablesaver/Race Tech/ 
Trick/C O Thompson/MP Paint- 
ing/Bell/Orange County Cycle/ 
Jesus Christ/FMF/Cycle Shack- 
sponsored Young. “My bike has been 
working good, but he somehow 
pulled me." 

Young chased Davis to the 
checkers, where they finished seven 
seconds ahead of Paladino, Brown 
and Mulligan. 








Young's consistent pair of seconds 
gave him the overall win. Davis was 
second with his 4-1. Lewis managed 
a third with his 1-8, topping Pala- 
dino's 5-3 and Mike Young's 3-9. 

Davis came back in the 250cc class 
to claim the overall. 

Lamson got the early drop on the 
gate in the first moto to holeshot Jeff 
Pestana, Davis, Mike Young and Bob 


. Kline. On the second lap, Pestana 


dropped to third allowing Davis to 
move in on Lamson. Davis chased 
the Yamaha rider most of the race 
before he finally found his way into 
the lead. Lamson trailed Davis to the 
checkered, but wasn't able to chal- 
lenge the American Suzuki/Arai/ 
Malcolm Smith-backed rider. Young 
placed third with Turner taking 
fourth and Hughes fifth. 

Davis started things off right in the 
second moto as he led Lamson, Mike 
Pascrella, Turner and Hughes at the 
start. Davis slowly pulled away as 
Pascarella pushed Lamson in 
second. Lamson was riding a smooth : 
and well-calculated race, but near the 
halfway point folded to Pascrella’s 
pressure. Lamson hung tight to 
Pascarella as Davis took the win. 
Turner was less than five seconds 
behind the top three as Hughes 
claimed a distant fifth. 

Kawasaki/Maxima/Dunlop/ 
O'Neal/Arai-sponsored Mike Fisher 
claimed the overall win in the 500cc 
Pro class after a tough battle with 
Joey Schlag. 

Mike Hooker led the start of the 
first noto with Rich Mythen, Fisher, 
Schlag and Pete Murray close 
behind. On the first lap, Hooker 
dropped to third, handing Fisher a 
small lead over Mythen. 

After dropping to third, Hooker 
found himself in an all-out battle 
with Schlag for third. The pair 


. swapped positions several times 


before Schlag managed to break free 
from the Honda pilot. 

In midrace, Jon Nelson made his 
appearance known, ad he moved into 
fourth after a bad start. The northern 
California CMC number one plate 
holder soon caught Schlag. Unfor- 
tunately for Nelson, time ran out as 
Fisher greeted the checkers six 
seconds ahead of Mythen, Schlag, 
Nelson and Hooker. 

Schlag came back to holeshot 
Fisher, Wageman, Hooker and Mur- 
ray in moto two. Schlag led the pack 
the entire moto with Fisher never 
more than two seconds behind. 
Murray. worked his way to third 
before the finish with Nelson fourth 
ahead of Sean Conley. 

Fisher's 1-2 topped Schlag's 3-1 for 
the overall. Nelson was third with 
a pair of fourths. Mythen's disap- 
pointing second moto dropped him 
to fourth at 2-8 with Murray round- 
ing out the top five with his 8-3. 

In the 60cc 9-11 class, Jason Shirey 
used good starts on his way to the 
class win. 

Paul Ito bested Nathan Woods, 
Shirey, Jeff Baldwin and Drai 
Nichols at the start of the first moto. 
Shirey snuck past the top two on the 
uphill, but couldn't shake off Ito. 
During the first half of the moto, 
Shirey maintained a slim, four-bike- 
length lead which slowly shrunk as 
the race progressed. The last two laps 
saw Ito try to regain his lead, but 
he couldn't make anything work. 
Shirey pulled off the win ahead of 
Ito, Woods, Baldwin and Nichols. 

Nichols was the one to beat at the 
start of the second moto as the 
Kawasaki rider led Ito, Shirey, Jerry 
Harvey and Woods on the first lap. 
Nichols stretched his lead to three 
seconds by the second lap with Shirey 
taking over the number-two posi- 
tion. With only two laps remaining, 
Woods shot past Harvey for fourth. 

Shirey captured the overall with

Juniors. Garcia held off Saenz for the second moto win and the overall. 





his 1-2 performances. Ito was second 
followed by Nichols, Woods and 
Harvey. 

Rob Edwards took home the win 
in the 500cc Beginner class via his 
1-4 score. 

First moto action saw Dan Town- 
send gate perfectly to lead John 
Cook, Gary Bernal, Keith Phelan 
and Edwards at the start. Townsend 
led the first half of the moto before 
Edwards powered by for the lead. 
Townsend fell three seconds off the 
pack, but had an amazing 15 seconds 
on Bernal. Keith Antes was, fourth 
and Phelan was fifth. 

Les Shpil came out of nowhere to 
holeshot the second moto. Shpil 
finished seventh in the first moto, but 
led Keith Braden, Edwards, Jim 
Phillips and Beranal. Shpil eventu- 
ally pulled away as Townsend 
worked his way to second ahead of 
Braden, Edwards, and Jamie Mor- 
ton. Edwards took the overall with 
his 1-4 topping Shpil’s 7-1 and 
Phillips’ 6-3. Braden was fourth with 
Antes rounding out the top five. 

Gerry Johnson picked up the win 
in division one of the 250cc Junior 
class. 

Jim Carley got the drop on the gate 
in the first moto, only to see the race 
red-flagged due to a false start. Once 
the race was officially underway, 
Kent Griffin was out front, pursued 
by Michael Patterson, Mike Hodges, 
Johnson and Memo Gidley. The first 
few laps saw the entire top five 
change as Gidley held the lead over 
Johnson, Hodges, Keith Cordua and 
Anthony Aquino. Gidley stretched 
his lead to almost five seconds before 
netting the checkers. 

Johnson holeshot Jesse Alexander, 
Carley, Hodges and Gidley at the 
start of the second moto, only to drop 
to second before the end of the first 
lap. Alexander then continued where 
Johnson left off with Mike Finch 
holding down third. Ray McIntosh, 
who finished eighth in the first moto, 
was fourth over Gidley. Alexander 
cruised to the easy win, but Johnson 
claimed the. overall. Gidley was 
second with 1-5 over Alexander’s 7- 
1 and Cordua’s 1-6. McIntosh earned 
the final top five position with his 
8-4. a

Lockhart Racing's Dale Quarterley and Doug Brauneck took over the 
AMA/CCS EBC Brakes Endurance Challenge points lead at Talledega. 


AMA/CCS EBC Brakes Endurance Road Race 





Challenge: Round 8 





Lockhart wins, takes 
point lead at Talledega 


By Richard Chambers 
TALLADEGA, AL, SEPT. 9-10 


The AMA Endurance Series points lead 
changed hands at Alabama International 
Mowe Speedway, the world’s fastest speed- 


way, with Lockhart 


them the top spot with only 
two rounds to go. 

Extreme tire wear gave 
mechanics a workout in the 
pits and the high-speed banking gave 
the riders a stage for the first-ever 
Monster Bike Shoot-Out. This five- 
lap dash for cash involved the top 
five teams in GTO points, plus one 
promoter’s option, racing 20-miles 
head-to-head with one mandatory 
rider change. - 

Dutchman Racing’s Kevin Rent- 
zell and Jeff Heino were up against 
Hyper-Cycle’s Carry Andrew and 
Mark Chin (filling in for James 
Domay, who was at Willow Springs 
defending his Formula USA points 
lead), Lockhart’s Dale Quarterley 
and Doug Brauneck, High Tech’s 
Eric Moe and Paul Bray (subbing for 
Larry Jeurink, who injured his wrist 
in the last practice session), and 
Team Wyoming’s Dr. David Kieffer 
and John Ashmead. Team Targa’s 
Dan Chivington and Larry Shorts 
completed the six-bike, one-row 
starting grid as the promoter’s 
option. 

Rentzell led off for Dutchman, 
dueling wheel-to-wheel with Brau- 
neck and Andrews through the 
infield and out onto the south 
banking for the first time. The pack 
shuffled with the Kawasaki ZX-10 of 
Chivington blowing by to take the 
lead. Though the six bikes were all 
in the lead draft, it was obvious that 
High Tech was sitting back, watch- 
ing from fifth, while Ashmead 
looked reserved in sixth on the Bell/ 
Lockhart-sponsored Honda: 

The lead changed six times in the 





Racing’s win earning 


first lap and a half, and as the pack 
rolled off the north banking on lap 
two, Andrew and Brauneck dove into 
the pits. Quarterley was away in 
three seconds, but Chin, unfamiliar 
with the Suzuki, stalled and had to 
be pushed off. Rentzell held a six- 
bike length lead over Chivington, 
who was working hard in the infield 
to stay close and then using the 
Targa/Castrol-sponsored Kawasa- 
ki’s horsepower to retake the lead on 
the banking. High Tech moved up 
to third, with Wyoming fourth, 
Lockhart fifth and Hyper-Cycle 
sixth. 

Lap three came to a close with 
Rentzell and Chivington peeling off 
the wall to pit and exchange riders 
in quick fashion, with High Tech 
also in the pits. They rejoined the 
race and the top four were less than 
five seconds apart with Hyper-Cycle 
making up ground on High Tech 
from fifth. Lockhart, at the front 
because of a fast stop, led with 
Dutchman second, Targa third, and 
Hyper-Cycle putting the pass on 
Bray who was taking his first laps 
on the Conser Coach/Michelin/ 
Lockhart-sponsored Suzuki. Team 
Wyoming’s Kieffer took the manda- 
tory stop, but the action was up front 
as the pack started bunching up for 
the checkered flag. Lockhart took the 
win over Dutchman with Targa, 
Hyper Cycle, High Tech and Wyom- 
ing rounding out the top six. 

At 2:08 p.m., the eighth round of 
the EBC Endurance Road Race 
Challenge took the green flag, and 
the battle resumed right where it left 
off in the shoot-out. 

The lead changed four or five

supercross season finale in Colorado. Tim Buchli finished second. 





times a lap for the first 30 miles with 
Rentzell and Brauneck riding hard 
to make up for the top-end power 
of tuner Rob Muzzy's Targa Kawa- 
saki. Lockhart team captain Keith 
Perry estimated their top speed at 
over 185 mph on the Suzuki GSXR, 
and the Kawasaki ZX-10 would blow 
by at over five to seven mph faster, 
depending on the draft, and could 
have topped 190 mph in the lead 
four-bike draft.. 

Hyper Cydes Andrew pulled 
some bold moves to shuffle the order 
at every turn, As the pack braked into 
turn one on lap 10, the four bikes 
were less than 15 feet apart. Andrews 
was on the outside and had hold of 
the short end of the stick, he wisely 
took the runoff rather than press the 
issue. High Tech amd Wyoming 
swept by and Andrew was underway 
in sixth, down about 15 seconds to 
the three leaders. Dutchman, Lock- 
hart and Targa continued to battle, 
but Chivington was having traction 
problems, the big Kawasaki’s “a 
little hard to turn" according to 
Chivington, and the extra work on 
the tires was showing. 

The points leader in GTU, Ros- 
well Honda Racing, held the lead in 
that class, but a war was going on 
for second and third. Asphalt Avi- 


ators and Just for Fun were all over : 


each other and there were some close 
moments. With traction at a very 
forgiving premium here, they both 
pulled away from Autobahn Society 
with Gary Griffith in fourth and 
Seminole Racing in the top five. 
Things settled down with Lock- 
hart and Dutchman playing follow- 
the-leader; Chivington was becom- 


‘ing more uncomfortable, losing 


ground as Hyper-Cycle played catch- 
up on High Tech from fifth. 

The first round of pit stops put 
Dutchman's Heino against Quarter- 
ley on Lockhart. Targa's pit stop 
included a new rear tire and featured 
Larry Shorts appearing fit after a 
season of shoulder problems. 

Quarterley methodically carved 
into Dutchman's lead and six laps 
into the second hour Lockhart took 
the lead. Heino could only watch 
Quarterley march off into the dis- 
tance. Meanwhile, Team Wyoming 
II made its way into the top five and 
started. trading paint with Hyper 
Cycle for fourth. After a couple of 
close encounters, Andrews pulled 
ahead and Wyoming II held fifth. 

The Roswell Honda riding chores 
were now being handled by Cam 
Roos, and he had lapped through 
third in the GTU class. Just for Fun 
had dropped from the top five. 
Asphalt Aviators’ Chuck Folly and 
Andy Deathrage held second with 
David Reed taking over Autobahn 
Society’s Honda Hurricane and 








holding down third. He later 
crashed, however, in turn five. 

Bubba Blackwell was recruited to» 
fill in for the injured Mark Mitchell 
on Just for Fun and they started their 
climb back into the top three. _ 

The last round of pit stops saw 
Lockhart changing the rear tire and 
Brauneck left the pits 19 seconds 
ahead of Rentzell, who had taken 
over from Heino. 

Rentzell started to close the gap, 
first at a rate of only one second a 
lap. But he was soon turning the 
quickest laps of the weekend (2:06.2) 
as he cut up to three seconds off the 
leaders’ advantage each lap. 

Chin had turned the Hyper Cycle 
Suzuki back over to Andrew; and the 
top three were all on the lead lap. 
Shorts held fifth behind High Tech’s 
Paul Bray, who was gaining confi- 
dence as the race wore on. 

Rentzell’s charge came to an 
abrupt halt as he was braking into 
turn six, the left-hander that leads 
onto the south banking. He was up 
quickly, but could not restart the 
Suzuki and Dutchman lost three laps 
replacing left side levers. 

Hyper Cycle now took up the 
chase from second and started to 
close slightly before Lockhart picked 
up the pace. High Tech’s Moe kept 
the Suzuki on the lead lap with 
Chivington briefly unlapping Targa 
by passing Lockhart. Targa, how- 
ever, was soon forced to slow again, 
the victims of another cooked rear 
tire. 

Hyper Cycle got completely out of 
shape going into the same corner 
which had bitten Rentzell, and 
corner workers reported that the rear 
tire had lost air pressure. Andrews 
called it a day so the problems may 
actually have been worse. 

Lockhart took the win with High 
Tech just over a minute behind. 
Targa ended up third and Team 
Gibsonia/Englert Racing passed 
Team Wyoming with two laps to go 
for fourth on their Yamaha FZR1000. 
The RC30 Honda of Wyoming 
finished fifth; both fourth and fifth 
were one lap behind third-placed 
Targa. 

Roswell Honda finished sixth 
overall and first in the GTU class, 
locking up the 1988 GTU class 
Championship in the process. Just 
For Fun took second in the race and 
Seminole Honda was third.

Cooper cops two 
at SRAC SX 


By Larry Johnson 

GREELEY, CO, SEPT. 10 

Team Honda's Guy Cooper came to Greeley 
for the SRAC supercross season finale, and 
went back to Stillwater, Oklahoma, a little 
richer after winning both the 125cc and 250cc 
Pro main events. 

Joining Cooper were Yamaha's Doug 
Dubach, Suzuki's Jimmy Gaddis and Kawa- 
saki's Denny Stephenson and Jeff Emig. Other 
out-of-staters were Bryan Emig, eed 
Grayson Goodman and Heath Kirkland, 
Brent Wineland of Phoenix and Robby Clauss 
of New Mexico. 

Dubach timed the gate perfectly in the 125cc 
Main ahead of Gaddis, per, Tim Buchli 
and Stacey Cook. But within two turns, 
Gaddis was in front and Stephenson had 
passed Buchli and Cook. By lap five, the top 
six had pulled away. Dubach was dogging 
Gaddis hard, but went down, then stalled at 
the finish. line and restarted sixth. Once 
Cooper was in second, he started pressuring 
Gaddis everywhere. 

The top three "were getting away from 
Buchli and Cook, while Dubach was strug- 
gling to gain ground on that twosome. On 
the next circuit, Cooper saw his chance and 
went past for the lead. For the final two laps, 
he eased away from Gaddis. Just before the 
finish, Stephenson banzaied past Gaddis in 
the whoops, but bobbled, giving the spot right 
back. He regained control to finish third. 

Buchli jammed his Yamaha into turn one 
of the 250cc main ahead of Cook, Cooper, 
Dubuch and Stephenson. Cooper took second 


. before the rockers, and Stephenson bailed. He 


remounted fifteenth. Half a lap later, Cooper 
took the lead over the doubles. For the next 
two laps, heand Dubach went fender to fender, 
then Dubach jumped inside leading to a left- 
hand switchback. They made contact in the 
air, sending Dubach out of control The 
resulting fall injured Dubach's hand, and he 
sat trackside the rest of the race. 

Cooper be; to motor away to a comfor- 
table lead while Cook crashed on lap five, 
giving third to Gaddis, who battled with 
Buchli over second. Buchli never faltered and 
edged Gaddis for the position. Stephenson 
made a brilliant comeback to finish fourth 
ahead of Cook, Corey Cope, Emig and 
Goodman. 


Buchli's efforts helped him win his second 











consecutive 250cc Supercross State Cham- 
pionship plus the 125cc title.

Morris, Matthews maul 
Indian Creek MX Classic 


By Gary Crider 

CULLMAN, AL, SEPT. 4 

The 12th Annual Pepsi-Cola MX Classic at 
Indian Creek MX saw Cary Morris and Chance 
Matthews claim hard-earned victories in the 
250 and 125cc B divisions, respectively, while 
Jeff Helgren edged John Trissel for Open B 
honors. Darryl Ahonen and Darryl Heisler 
took the A division wins while Sam Gallegly 
squeaked into the 250cc C top slot in a tied 
score over Robby Shields. 

Over 150 entries from five states were on 
hand for the event despite wet weather. 
Practice was delayed due to rain and sloppy 
track conditions, but halfway through the first 
set of motos the sun came out and track 
conditions were much improved. 

"The 250cc C division saw fierce competition 
for top gold. Roswell. Honda-backed Ken 
Kowalczyk led moto one until the last lap 
when Suzuki pilot Kenny Stowe got by for 
the win over Kowalczyk. Robby Shields of 
Tennesee finished third while fellow Kawa- 
saki rider Sam Gallegly recovered from a 
botched start to finish fourth. 

Gallegly perfected his starting technique in 
moto two with a holeshot that netted the win 
and the overall via his 4-1 score over Shields’ 
3-2. First moto winner Stowe was held to a 
fifth place finish and fourth overall behind 
Kowalczyk's 2-4. 

Mississippi's Cary Morris, who has moved 
up to the B class after a fifth overall in 250cc 
Cracing at Loretta Lynn's, held off challenges 
from Earnest Harbin and Todd Downs to win 
both 250cc B motos. Honda Metormart/Gear/ 
Maxima's Harbin claimed runner-up honors 
over Barr/Smith/Maier-backed Downs. 

Morris, Harbin and Downs returned in 
125cc B action but all three ran into problems 
while Suzuki rider Chance Matthews claimed 
the top prize with a 4-1 score. Chad Bolding 
posted 3-2 and had to settle for second in the 
tied score. Harbin's 1-8 was good for third 
over Kevin Dollar and Morris. Marc Waddle's 
2-9 netted the sixth place trophy while Downs 
was eighth overall with 13-3 finishes. 

In 250cc/Open A racing Darryl Ahonen 
notched runaway wins over Mike Goolsby's 
pair of seconds. Meanwhile, Johnny Shields, 
a newcomer to the A ranks, and Darryl Heisler 
dueled over third position in both motos, 
Heisler yielded to Shields in moto one but 
fought his way past in the second moto to 
claim third over Shields. Heisler came back 
to win the 125cc A class.

Hunnicutt, Willis win 
Lucerne HS 


By Donnetta and Bob Murray 


LUCERNE VALLEY, CA, SEPT. 11 
Normally rivals, Ted Hunnicutt and Tom 
Willis paired to win the Prairie Dogs Hare 
Scrambles Team Race at Soggy Dry Lake. 
'Team Green Derrick Paiement, teamed with 
Husqvarna-mounted Dan Smith was first to 
the end of the bomb, over the hill and onto 
the marked trail leading into the valley. Just 
out of his dust was Hunnicutt, who was 
waiting for Paiement to make a mistake. 
Giving up on that strategy, Hunnicutt went 
out into the bushes and the duo drag raced 
across the valley. 

Four miles into the course, Paiement picked 
up a flat front tire and was forced to complete 
the 32-mile loop with that handicap, even- 
tually coming into first pit in fifth place, well 
behind Hunnicutt. 

Brett Howell, aboard a Kawasaki (teamed 
with Yamaha's Ken Parry), was third at the 
end of the bomb but overshot the canyon, 
allowing Charlie Morris to sneak past him 
for second, going into the pits for the partner 
change. Morris was teamed up with Downhill 
Alexander. Howell was fourth into the pits

At THIS YEAR 
24-HoUR THE O 
CAUGHT UP WITH 


History certainly has a way 
of repeating itself. 

Take, for example, this 
yeags grueling WERA 24-Hour 
Endurance Race at Willow 
Springs. 

Among America's top rac- 
ing crews—crews in constant 
competition — along comes a 
team to hit the track for their 
first time all season. 

The team nobody 
could keep up with. 

The winning team 
from Vance & Hines. 

This should come 
as no surprise, consider 
ing Vance & Hines is the only 
team in history to clinch 
Willow Springs three years in 
a row. 

That’s a 72-hour testament 
to some pretty solid motor- 
cycling precision. Precision that 
demanded our pit crews refuel, 
change riders and a set of tires 
in an average of 
40 seconds almost 
every hour. 








VANCE 


But our guys are used to 
maintaining these kinds of stan- 
dards. Because they’re the same 
technicians who service your 
bike at every Vance & Hines 
store, every day. 

Yet while the crew’s 
performance was crucial, the 
bike had to perform just 
as well. 

That’s why we raced on 
a Suzuki GSXR-750, fitted 
with our own Vance & Hines 
performance parts. 

And, why we were the 
only team bold enough to ride 
on street-legal Pirelli MP7 
Sport Radials. When everyone 
else relied on racing slicks. 

Which all goes to show, it 
takes a lot of the best to keep 
a bike blazing for 24 hours 
straight. Let alone have a twelve 
lap lead at the checkered flag. 

So after three years, we’ve 
come to a conclusion: at Vance 
& Hines, making his- 
tory is simply all in 
a day's work.

Roe romps Indy State 
Championship MX 


By Susan Willian 

MITCHELL, IN, SEPT. 10 

The 1988 Indiana State Championship was 
held at Midway MX as Team Green's Derrick 
Roe aced overalls in the 125 and 250cc A classes 
to earn dual state titles in the three moto 
format with all motos totaling for the final 
score. 

In moto one of the 125cc A class, Harshman 
took the holeshot but Roe made a quick move 
to go into first where he remained at the 
checkered with second placed Jim Jones some 
distance back. A duel developed for third 
between Harshaman and Bryan Hoffman. 
Hoffman pulled into striking distance of 
Harshman. The duo bumped handlebars as 
Hoffman took over third on the inside of the 
turn. Harshman charged after Hoffman but 
Mike Dezsi in fifth fired his machine to close 
the gap to Harshman. The final lap found 
Dezsi up to third, while Hoffman CORP 
to fourth. Harshman charged for Dezsi. Side- 
by-side over the tabletop jump the duo went 
with Harshman coming out on top. Dezsi set 
after Harshman, as the battle continued. With 
first and second decided, third was up for grabs 
as Harshman landed that position at the 
checkered followed by Dezsi and Hoffman. 

Again Harshman was quick off the gate in 
moto two followed by Mark Sweeney, Jones 
and Roe. Lap one saw Sweeney in command, 
as Roe put a move on Jones to take over third. 
Roe then worked on second place Harshman 
and took over second. Sweeney bobbled but 
held to first followed by Roe, Harshman and 
Jones. Roe sneaked by on the inside of 
Sweeney- to command the pack. Roe then 
stretched out the lead to ride comfortably in 
first for the win. Sweeney regrouped to pass 
second place Harshman. Harshman tried to 
move around Sweeney on the outside, but 
Harshman shut him off. The pair rode in 
unison as Harshman took over second 
followed by Sweeney and Jones. Sweeney 
bobbled over the whoop section allowing 
Jones to move into third. By lap four, 
Harshman was out of the race with a flat. 
Sweeney landed third as Hoffman finished 
fourth and Dezsi took fifth. 

In moto three, Roe charged to an early lead 
followed by a fight for. second between 
Harshman and Jones. Jones rode for second, 
while Harshman claimed third. 

Roe was uncontested in moto one of the 
250cc A class as Mark Smith worked his way 
into second followed by John Eby. Moto two 
was a repeat for Roe, Smith was second.

Kell tops Castle Rock TT 


By Derry! Anderson 


CASTLE ROCK, WA, AUG. 27 

Once again the track and the weather were 
perfect for the ninth running of Castle Rock's 
Summer Series. 

Arai/Mom and Dad-sponsored Speedy Kell 
took his Rotax to the main event win in the 
combined Junior/Expert class at the Castle 
Rock Fairgrounds TT. 

Heat races were won by Kell, Del Schnitzer 
and Marty Zirbel, who was aboard a Lou 
Kinnish Triumph. For several weeks, Zibel 
and Mike Sullivan have been showing the rest 
of the Experts the fast way around the track 
on the big twins. 

In the main event, Zirbel got the initial lead 
followed by Kell, Schnitzer, Troy Yeo, John 
Clayton and Jim Servo. Kell was all over Zirbel 
lap after lap trying every line possible. On 
lap four, Schnitzer slid under Kell while 
coming over the jump. However, Kell repaid 
the favor coming out of a turn and his super 
drive took him right past Zirbel. The trio 
continued to run about five to 12 yards apart, 
while leaving the rest of the field. Back 20 
yards was Yeo, who had 10 on Clayton and 


Kevin Bass. Kelly pulled a sizeable lead on. 


Schnitzer as the checkered flag came out. 
Behind Schnitzer was Zirbel, Yeo, Clayton, 
Bass, Robert Frohs, Tricia Lyons. 

In the 125cc class Ryan Anderson took his 
Longview Honda/Electro Racing/Daeco/ 
Blendzall/Gresham's Mt. Hood Honda- 
backed. Honda to the heat race lead while 
being chased by season points leader J.P. 
Simonsen, and Mark Johnson and Boise's 
Scott McPherson. Lap after lap, Simonsen and 
Johnson chased Anderson as the trio slowly 


` left the rest of the pack. With the white flag 


coming out Anderson's bike developed a bad 
miss and Simonson and Johnson got by. 

In the main event, Anderson got the initial 
lead, once again, but shortly the bike slowed 
on him and Simonsen and Johnson continued 
their battle right down to the checkered flag 
where the final order went Simonsen, John-

Pocino pounces Las 
Vegas Motocross 


By Dick Goodwin 

LAS VEGAS, NV, AUG. 27 

Chris Pocino ground up the competition in 
the 125cc Intermediate class on his way to 
double victories at Las Vegas International 
Raceway Saturday night. Pocino capped off 
his successful evening by winning the long 
jump contest as well. 

The 125cc Pros ran with the Intermediates, 
but were scored separately. Pro Kerry Mul- 
ligan blasted to the front to start the race 
action. Fellow Pro Scott Underwood wasted 
little time in burning his way into the second 
spot. Pocino was fourth overall (and second 
Intermediate behind Richard Saxton) when 
he made his move to take over the Intermediate 
lead in midrace. The hard-charging Pocino 
went on to finish third overall and notch the 
first Intermediate win. 

Pro (125cc) Chris Trickle blasted the 
holeshot in moto two, but Pocino was right 
with him. As the race progressed, Pocino 
applied constant pressure to Trickle and made 





a great pass to také the overall lead. He was 
never headed from then on and went on to 
win the race by a comfortable margin. 

The overall Intermediate results had Chris 
Pocino in first, ahead of David Griffith and 
Gregg Cox. Scott Underwood won the Pro 
division.

Aztalan MX 


By Steve Giuntoli 





LAKE MILLS, WI, SEPT. 11. 

Chuck Whitesell won a hard fought battle in 
the Mini A class to best Brian Holzhauer and 
Eron Ezerins at the Aztalan Cycle Club- 
grounds. Whitesell has been working hard all 
year to beat Holzhauer and Ezerins both of 
whom were-on his tail for all of both motos, 
Although Whitesell got the holeshot, Ezerins 


pressured him in moto one with Holzhauer 
in tow. In moto two Whitesell was chased by 


Holzhauer with Ezerins breathing dust, 
Though the positions were pretty much set, 
these three proyided very fast lap. times and 
impressive racing. 

In the 125ce A class. Bob Behrens got the 


carly lead needed to go the distance. Following 
him: was Corey Schweitzer and Jim Heyden 
held on for third overall with Nebel fourth. 

Moto one of-the 250cc A class saw Behrens 
again first into the first turn. He then turned 
the power on and built up an adequate lead, 
enough to get him the win. Nebel pulled in 
behind, but three laps later Schweitzer got by 
for a second. Nebel held third with Randy 
Ferkans fourth. In moto two, all the position 
changing was done on lap one. By the ime 
they came by the order was set; Behrens, 
Schweitzer, Ferkans and Nebel. They also 
overalled in the same order. 

The 125 C classes had interesting action. 
In moto one of the 125cc C-1, Art Cantlin 
got the holeshot and hung on to it until the 
last lap when Dan Roeschli got by with Jim 
Gallagher trailing. Bill Fleischman, the local 
favorite, fell in turn one, starting out next 
to last. Working his way up through the pack 
of 26 riders he finished fourth. 

In the second moto, everything clicked for 





Fleischman and he literally ran away with the 
race, Gallagher was putting the pressure on 
but never could catch him. Meanwhile, 
Roeschli worked his way up from seventh to 
grab iind place.

Behrens, Roe top 


Lincoln trail MX 


By Susan William 

CASEY, IL, SEPT. 5 

Day two of the 15th Annual Labor Day MX 
at Lincoln Trail MX saw Illinois' Bob Behrens 
imd Hoosier Derrick Roe top the A classes. 

In moto one of the 125 A, Keith Petri, Tom 
Fosler and Behrens were the front runners as 
Roe remained in the rear of the charging 
brigade. Positions changed rapidly on lap one 
as Behrens took charge followed by Roe and 
Robert Motsinger. Roe chased Behrens 
waiting for the right moment to make his 
move. Roe moved within striking distance 
with Motsinger coming on strong in third. 
Roe made his move and stole the lead from 
Behrens. Behrens recharged and tried to dial 
in Roe as Motsinger closed. 

Behrens repassed Roe to move back into first 
and on the final lap, Roe attempted passing 
Behrens everywhere on the track. But the more 
experienced Behrens closed the door, taking 
first while Roe finished second and Motsinger 
hung to third. 

The second moto saw Jim Randa, the leader 
with Behrens third, Motsinger fourth and Roe 
again getting a bad start. Early on lap one 
Motsinger was in front. Followed closely by 
Behrens. Motsinger fell and lost the lead to 
Behrens. Then Motsinger dropped to third as 
Rusty Ott moved into second. Behrens pulled 
out a comfortable lead and remained first at 
the checkered, taking the overall with a 1-1 
score. . 

















Terry Williams piloted his Yamaha to the 600cc Superbike win after 
dicing with Brian Sutton at Seattle International Raceway. 


By lap four, Roe had moved into fourth, 
while Motsinger closed the gap to Ou. By the 
final lap, Motsinger moved into second 
followed by Roe in third and Ott dropped 
to fourth where they remained unul the end 
of the moto. i 

Roe returned better prepared in the first 
moto of the 250cc class A as he took over the 
front position-on one despite the pressure of 
second place Motsinger and third place 
Behrens. Behrens passed Motsinger but then 
he went down and dropped to tenth, allowing 
Mottsinger to take back second place. By lap 
three, Roe started pulling away, but Motsinger 
made a strong charge. By lap five, Motsinger 
had closed the distance to Roe. K 

The final lap saw Roe hanging on to first 
as he was still hotly pursued by Motsinger. 
The checkered saw Roe first with Motsinger 
only a few feet away from Roe in second. 

“I really gained a lot of time on the last 
lap on Roe because he messed up a couple 
of times and almost fell," Motsinger said. Troy 
Bradshaw claimed third for the moto. Behrens 
and Ott dueled to the checkered as Ott took 
third and Behrens fourth as the pair appeared 
to be side by side at the checkered. 

Behrens returned to win the second moto 
as Bradshaw filed by in second and Roe 
finished third.

Williams’ victory at 
Seattle RR 


By Jane Steele 


KENT, WA, SEPT. 11 

Brian Sutton and Terry Williams continued 
their season-long battle for the 600cc Super- 
bike win at the Washington Motorcycle 
Roadracing Association's. meet at’ Seattle 
International Raceway. Although Sutton led 
for most of the race, Williams used a lapped 
rider to slip by in the last turn of the last 
lap. Prize money was provided by Seattle Cycle 
Center. 

The morning heat race victory went to Mike 
Ruedebusch on a Honda Hurricane, after he 
slipped past Suzuki-mounted Craig Trinder, 
and fended off the challenges of Brian Sutton's 
Yamaha FZ600. 

In the first lap on the main, Ron's 
pu Sutton grabbed the 

oleshot, but Ruedebusch, riding for High- 
line Honda/Suzuki, was right on his tail. 
Ruedebusch rode hard, but was unable to hold 
off Terry Williams, riding for Suzuki Yamaha 
Northwest. By the second lap, Sutton and 
Williams had set the tone for the remainder 
of the race and were pulling away from 
Ruedebusch and the rest of the pack. 

But red flags came out and racing was forced 
to stop when Marcus McBain, a first year rider, 
crashed. 








After the track was clear and racing 
resumed, the Seattle Cycle Center 600 Super- 
bike Shoot-Out was restarted. Sutton and 
Williams again rocketed to the lead, this time 
with last year's Rookie of the Year, Scott 
McMillan, in third place. Sutton and Willi- 
ams set a blistering pace, and quickly pulled 
away from the pack. 2 

Each lap, as the bikes came into view, 
Sutton would pull ahead up the hill, only 
to have Williams close the gap in the turn. 
Sutton would get just enough drive onto the 
straight that Williams was unable to draft. 
But in the last turn of the last lap, Sutton 
was blocked coming out of the turn by a 
lapped rider, and Williams charged past to 
take the checkered flag. Ruedebusch took third 
place after a race long battle with McMillan, 
who slipped to fifth place behind Honda- 
mounted Devin Seferos.

Nelson nabs Midway MX 


By Rolfe Otterness 

KELLOGG, MN, SEPT. 4 

Greg Nelson topped the competitive 25 Plus 
class at the final. Midway Recreation Park 
Motocross of the year. Nelson led all the way 
in the first moto on a Honda CR125 with 
Scott Miller pressuring on a Honda CR500. 
Scott Ruegg passed David Anderson on the 
second lap to take over third and held on to 
keep it as Tim Bartylia closed in alter a bad 
start to take fourth. 

Miller's Open class bike powered him into 
an early lead in the second moto with Nelson 
diving into second. Nelson hounded Miller 
for the first two laps, then both riders went 
down near the start of the third lap. Ruegg 
inherited the lead as Nelson quickly restarted 
to hold second. Bill Engstrom and Bartylla 
continued their dice and ran 3-4 with Miller 
up and running in fifth. The checkered saw 
Ruegg take the moto win on his Suzuki 
RMI25 as Nelson wrapped up the overall by 
taking second. 

Michael Thompson dominated his division 
of the 125cc Novice class with two runaway 
wins. Aaron Carlson cruised in for second in 
the first moto while Kirk Morehead railed 








through the pack on his Cagiva from last to 
third. Mark Vandal took fourth. 

"Thompson jetted out front in the second 
moto and pulled out a large lead. Morehead 
moved from fifth on the first lap to second 
by the conclusion of the next lap but 
Thompson was long gone, and Morehead had 
to settle for second. Vandal motored in for 
third to tie up third overall.

Karnow wins Malvern HS 


By Jeff Sanders 


WOOSTER, OH, SEPT. 18 
Yamaha-mounted Ken Karnow earned a hard 
fought overall win at the Malvern Moto Sport 
Park Hare Scramble. Karnow and 250cc class 
winner Jim Miller traded places for two hours 
over the five-mile course until the checkered 
flag was dropped. It was Karnow by 20 
seconds. 

Open class winner Eric Hale rode very hard 
for third overall, keeping Karnow and Miller 
honest the entire race. Ron-Laughlin, the 
200cc class winner, was very impressive, 
staying on the same lap as the leaders. 

Very tight racing took place in the Senior 
One class. Ray Flanagan and Lennie Rhodes 
battled the entire race with the lead changing 
hands four times, but at the end it was 
Flanagan taking the win just 10 seconds ahead 
of Rhodes. 

Once again Vince Karnow was unstoppa- 
ble, winning the Mini class and the Novice 
class, with competition coming from Steve 
Steineck and Rob Heil.

Brewer, Martin jam at 
Rolling Hills MX 


By Henry Muller 

REIDSVILLE, NC, SEPT. 11 

Troy Brewer and Lee Martin captured the 
overall wins in the 125 and 250cc Novice 
classes in round two of the N.A.M.E. Fall 
Nationals Motocross Series at Rolling Hills 
Cycle Park. Moto-X Fox rider Damon Brad- 
shaw, who recently inked a factory contract 
with Yamaha for the 1989 season romped to 
the 125 and 250cc Pro class wins, while Hank 
Moree mirrored Bradshaw's performance with 
a four moto sweep of the 125 and 250cc 
Amateur divisions. ` 

Action was hot in the first 125cc Novice 
moto as David Hill snatched the lead in turn 
two and churned out a three second cushion 
while Tommy Linville and Chuck Green 
debated over second. Troy Brewer was fourth 
off the line but soon found himself in second 
and closing on Hill. At the checkers it was 
Brewer with the win over Hill and Green, 
while Linville salvaged fourth over Todd 
Bennick. 

Moto two saw Bennick with acommanding 
holeshot followed by a freight train with Hill 
at the helm. Back in third was Brewer who 
set his signts on Hill. With the overall and 
a perfect series score in jeopardy, Brewer used 
his aggressive riding style to take over te lead 
and win ahead of Bennick and Hill. A 2-3 
moto score earned runner-up honors for Hill 
followed by Bennick, Green and Richard 
Hester. X 

The 250cc Novice class became a two man 
battle for the win between Lee Martin and 
Clifford Peirce, with Martin prevailing over 
Peirce and series points leader Larry White. 

The 125cc Pro and Amateur classes were 
run together but scored separate with Brad- 
shaw taking the Pro class first moto lead over 
Mike Andrews and Jim Chester. Paul Dalton 
led the Amateurs before succumbing to the 
pressure of Hank Moree. Bradshaw took the 
Pro win over TUF Racing's Andrews, while 
Moree topped the Amateur class over Dalton 
and Kevin Austin. 

Moto two looked like a repeat as, once 
again, it was Bradshaw, Andrews and Chester 
filling the top three spots in the Pro class, 
while Moree staved off the challenge of Dalton 
for the Amateur win. 

Moree ran off with both motos in the 250cc 
Amateur class but the battle for second went 
down to the wire with Steve Starnes passing 
Jay Hauser four turns from the finish of moto 
two for second overall. 

Pro 250cc class action saw Bradshaw with 
the first moto lead until a quick lowside 
dropped him to third behind Andrews and 
Chester. One lap later it was Bradshaw with 
the lead again followed by Chester, while 
Andrews dropped to third. Bradshaw towed 
Chester to the flag for a Pro class sweep with 
Andrews a safe third.

Gardner, Hopperstad battle 
at Bonneville RR 


By Bill Peters 


WEST VALLEY CITY, UT, SEPT. 4 

The 400 Superbike races have been an exciting 
season-long duel between Salt Lake speedster 
Chris Gardner and Colorado's John Hopper- 
stad. Every race this season has been a dogfight 
between the two. Gardner appears to have the 
slight edge in power and adrenaline, but 
Hopperstad gives nothing away in riding skill 
and experience. The Gardner Racing/Jim's 
Chevron/Pam's Freeway Expre$s-backed 
Gardner has claimed most of the victories and 
$500 Yamaha first-place prize money in the 
400cc races, but their race-kitted FZR's have 
always stayed within a few heartbeats of each 
other. This time, the race was even closer than 
usual. 

Hopperstad, Boulder Yamaha/Shoei/ 
B&G/Jones Sunglasses/Motorcycle Parts 
Center South-sponsored, got the holeshot, but 
Gardner shot past him on the following lap. 
Hopperstad repassed on the backside turns, 
and held off repeated attempts by Gardner to 
outbrake and duck underneath him, partic- 
ularly in the fast turn eight right-hand 
sweeper. Gardner could not get around 
Hopperstad, but did shrink his lead steadily 
during the midrace laps. On the sixth lap, 
Gardner was within drafting distance of 
Hopperstad, and he used that to his advantage 
on Bonneville's long 3800 foot front straight- 
away. Trailing Hopperstad out of turn nine 
onto the straight by only a short distance, 
Gardner shadowed the Boulder Yamaha rider 
all the way down the straight. Gardner used 
the draft to slingshot out to Hopperstad's left 
to set up deep and far on the outside of the 
tight 180-degree right-hand turn one. He then 
dived down to nip the inside apex and sli; 
under and ahead of Hopperstad for the lead. 
Hopperstad was unable to recover the lead, 
and Gardner crossed. the finish line for first 
place. Greg Nichols motored to a steady and 
uncontested third, with Fred Paiz in fourth 
on his Tres Hombres Restaurant/Plaza Cycle 
FZR. Fred Paiz promised to put a few more 
jalapeno peppers in his tank for the next race. 

In the 600 Superbike, Tad Giomarac . 
jumped out to the early lead on his production 
Hurricane. It would not last for very long as 
Hopperstad and Greg Nichols worked their 
way up to the front from the back of the 
starting grid. Hopperstad on an FZ600 and 
Nichols on his FZR400 passed Goimarac on 
the following consecutive laps. Nick Polevoy 
and, Eric Seward, both on FZ600s, jousted 
briefly for fourth. Seward's John Clayton- 
tuned machine pulled past Polevoy on lap 
seven to round out the top five in a spread 
out finish. The expected Hopperstad/Gardner 
match failed to materialize after older brother 
Lance Gardner suffered a hard crash earlier 
in the day on his Gardner Racing Hurricane 
that took the machine out-of action. 

Greg Nichols and USBA President Laird 
White provided the best racing action of the 
day in their fight for second in Open 
Superbike competition. Hopperstad appa- 
rently preferred to avoid the dicing between 
these two by staying out in front the whole 
time. Hopperstad turned in another flag-to- 
flag victory for even more Yamaha money. 

Nichols outbraked White into turn one to 
stake an early claim on second place behind 
Hopperstad, but White stayed close enough 
to fit under a blanket with Nichols. Nichols’ 
Superbike had motor on White's Production 
machine, so White had to take risks in the 
turns in order to stay within striking distance. 
White succeeded in doing so despite an 























Matt Willard (16), Don Hart (10) and Dan Hart (66) fight for the lead 
in the Novice class at the Paso Robles Short Track. 





excursion into the grass at the outside edge 
of turn one. White later reported that he fully 
expected to go down hard there, but somehow 
his tires found something to hold onto in the 
dust and grass while he was leaned over and 
hard on the throttle. White gained distance 
on Nichols at the entrances to the turns on 
the backside of the course, particularly the 
chicane. Nichols was visibly slower than 
White into these turns, but had enough engine 
to preserve his lead with a strong drive out 
of the turns. White had one brief opportunity 
to pull alongside Nichols in the chicane, but 
would have had to move Nichols out of the 
way with a very physically aggressive move. 
White decided that they were having too much 
fun as it was, he was ineligible for Yamaha 
money at any rate, and so elected not to put 
them both at risk with a potentially nasty pass. 
Nichols finished ahead of White for second 
place, with Chris Gardner in fourth and Nick 
Polevoy in fifth. Both Nichols and White 
enjoyed their race tremendously, and had the 
mule-wide grins to prove it.

Pack prevails at 
Paso Robles ST 


By Mike Vancil 


PASO ROBLES, CA, SEPT. 10 

John Pack survived a body-slam spill on the 
final lap of his heat race to come back in the 
R & D Enterprises-sponsored short track final 
and take a surprise win over his three 
competitors. 

In the heat race, with a scheduled eight laps, 
there was several exchanges between Auto 
Import Racing sponsored Pack and Randy 
Bereman. After the white flag lap, Bereman 
was only six inches off the rear of Pack. In 
turn two, Pack got sideways and did a high- 
side get-off that landed him flat onto the track. 
He didn't move, but everybody missed him, 
and then the checkers and red came out 
together. 

Later, when the final lined up, he had 
recovered and repaired his Yamaha. At the 
green light, it was fourth place heat race 
finisher Fran Brown who took the lead. He 
held the lead for two laps but put his hand 
into the air when his engine sputtered and 
slowed. Ready.to capitalize was Pack. He took 
the lead, and although badgered at every 
corner during the remaining 10 laps, he held 
off Randy Bereman and won by less than a 
bike length. Third was Kevin Crowley. 





Bereman and Crowley had earlier ushered 
a riderless bike around the track in a ceremony 
to honor Joel Green, Expert 6Z, who died 
September 3 at the Springfield 600 National. 
The machine carried Joel's number plates. 
Crowley carried the American flag, Bereman 
the checkered flag, as the National Anthem 
played over the loud speakers. 

In 60cc Novice Mini action, a hot A. J. 
Herrera mastered over his competition. It was 
touch and go for awhile as Jason Thompson 
was in the lead, but a good move by Herrera 
on lap three saw him take the lead for good. 

Thompson was second behind Herrera’s 
Ron Byrd and Herrera ‘Racing-sponsored 
Yamaha. Getting third was Jesse Ryan. 

The most spectacular move and pass of the 
evening was the property of Michelle DiSalvo 
as she took her dad’s venerable Triumph to 
a win. She was running third, after a long 
battle from a poor start, when leader Adam 
Enticknap went wide and second placer Mark 
Sheppard. got excited about the opening. He 
gassed it and immediately got into a tangle 
with Enticknap. Michelle moved under them 
both and took the checkers. It was a popular 
win for the young lady racer from Salinas who 
is sponsored by Sam Freeze Racing.

Rao, Rayborn, Toland 
star at Firebird RR 


By Naomi Bourne 

CHANDLER, AZ, SEPT. 11 

Carlo Rao, Cal Rayborn III and Doug Toland 
were fresh competition to the AMA/CCS 
Middleweight class road races at Firebird 
International Raceway. 

Shoei/Mauinger Racing/Western Honda/ 
Desert Cycle-sponsored Rao kept a comfor- 
table lead in the 100K Solo Endurance race 
GTU class. Rao's new Dunlop tires performed 
well in the desert heat, giving him the extra 
edge he needed to keep him ahead of Jim Cox. 
Cox was forced off the track by Derrick 
Mulligan during a handlebar scuffle in the 
carousel turns. Mulligan's Hurricane didn't 
downshift, so he went wide in the curve, riding 
off the track and nearly taking out Cox. Avon 
tires/Cycle Tune/Motul Oil/Lockhart Rac- 
ing/Dynojet-sponsored Cox returned to the 
track to capture second, and Honda House/ 
Mesa Honda Clinic-sponsored Mulligan came 
back for a third. 

Rayborn ran away with first in the Mid- 
dleweight Superbike race. Glenn Smith 
challenged Rayborn at the start, but Rayborn 
soon pulled ahead by 10 lengths. Glenn Smith 
and Jim Cox finished second and third. 

Doug Toland claimed the $800 first place 
Suzuki National Cup money in the Middle- 
weight Supersport Expert race after front- 
runner Glenn Smith was disqualified. Smith 
and Toland had worked each other hard 
through the back s-curves, Toland passing,

then being passed again by Smith. Their bikes 
touched once, and Toland dropped back. He 
recovered to finish behind Smith af the end. 
A group of riders issued a formal protest 
against Smith, so the Ninja engine was torn 
down and examined. Track officials found 
modifications, which are not permitted in the 
Supersport class. That awarded the win to 
Dunlop/Fox/Progressive Suspension/Tsu- 
baki Chain-sponsored Toland, with second 
and third place going to Dean Mizdal and

Zahrt wins Baylands MX 


By Mike Vancil 

FREMONT, CA, SEPT. 14 

Ken Zahrt returned to Baylands after a one 
week absence and resumed where he left off, 
with top payout money. Zahrt darted into the 
lead in both his motos and never looked back. 
Zahrt commutes nearly 300 miles to race at 
Baylands, but he will probably win the CMC 
250cc Professional- Championship for his 
efforts. 

Only in the second moto did Zahrt dial on 
extra power when Danny Paladino got close. 
Paladino put his Honda into a challenging 
position, but Zahrt promptly dialed on more 
power and moved away. Zahrt won both motos 
and Paladino trailed in second both times. 
Newcomer, Ron Allen brought his Kawasaki 
in for a third overall with a 4-3 performance 
over Eric Sandstrom, who had a 3-4 evening. 

In Amateur action it was an outstanding 
performance by Mark ‘Klauser that got him 
the first place trophy in the 125cc Beginner 
class.. From second on back the finishing 
position varied between the riders as no one 
had a clear-cut attachment to Klausers' rear 
fender. Second overall in this class was earned 
by Rick Christensen on his Honda with a 4- 
2 performance, while Chris Babcock went 3- 
3 for third.

Collins rolls on 
at Orange Co. Spdwy 


By Scott Daloisio 

COSTA MESA, CA, SEPT. 9 

Popular Phil Collins continued his late- 
season surge by winning the Scratch main 
event at the Orange County Fairgrounds. 

Collins steered the Rovazzini Electric/STP/ 
Reebok/JT Racing-sponsored Weslake from 
gate three into the lead. He went wide as they 
came off turn two and left the bottom of the 
track open for National Champion Brad 
Oxley and youthful Gary Hicks. 

But as the second lap began, Collins put 
some real estate between himself and the rest 
of the field. Oxley came charging after Hicks 
on the third lap and tried"his way inside on 
the last lap. Hicks fought Oxley off and 
finished second, four lengths behind the 
victorious Collins. 

Youth also was served on the Handicap side 
of the program as Steve Russell won the main. 

After a red flag on the original start, Bobby 
Cody came from the short yardage to lead over 
Russell and Randy Beddow. Eddie Castro and 
Jim Fishback went after Beddow and before 
the end of the opening revolution, both of 
them got by. 

Cody was impressive at the head of the pack 
and he began to put distance between himself 
and the field. Fishback passed Castro for third. 
Seconds later, he was passed by Hicks. 

Once Hicks shook off Fishback, he began 
to hunt second.place Russell and by the end 
of the sixth lap, he was stationed on the rear 
tire of Russell's Bobby Schwartz/Russell's 
Grandstands/STP-back Weslake. At the same 
time, they were both moving in on leader 
Cody. ^ 

On lap seven, Russell was all over Cody. 
As they went for the white flag, Cody drifted 
wide, allowing Russell to get alongside of 
him. As they raced under the white, Cody had 
a slim advantage, but they made contact and 
went down as they entered turn one. A chain- 
reaction crash resulted and five of the six riders 
still in the event hit the dirt. 

No one was injured in the immense tangle 
and referee Irwin Moon deemed Cody the 
cause and moved him to the back. That gave 
the win to Russell over Hicks and Fishback.

Hensley tops. 

Tri-City Hillclimb 

By Paul Hayes 

COAL VALLEY, IL, AUG. 21 

Steve Hensley used his final ride in the 750cc 
class to set the fastest time of the meet. This 
race marked the return of the Tri-City M/C 
into promoting hillclimbs. The event was 
sanctioned by AMA/D-17. 

After a 13-year absence from holding 
hillclimbs the club hosted 78 riders at their 
new hill. It was a challenging 182 foot 
chopped up hill. 

Hensley rode his Yamaha in the 750cc class 
setting the fast time of 6.52 seconds. Coming 
in behind Hensley was another Yamaha rider, 
Mike Lundeen. His second ride was also his 
best. Lundeen posted a 6.85 ride. Lloyd Haas 
rode his Kawasaki triple to third place with 
a 7.17 second round climb. 

Paul Heidenreich made a rare appearance 
a winning one in the 500cc class. Heidenreich 
tripped the light at 5.65 on his final attempt. 
He rode a Honda CR500. Tom Elmore, also 
on a CR500 Honda, placed second just a few 
ticks off. His last ride was 5.77. Steve Hensley

riding another Yamaha placed third in class. 
His best ride came in the final round. 
Hensley's time was 6:44. 

The Open class went to the big-bore 
Kawasaki of Elmore. He blasted the hill in 
5.67 on his final assalt. The V-twin-powered 
Harley-Davidson of Bob Fisher carried him 
up and over the top in 6.74. That ride occured 
in round two, putting Fisher in second place. 
Most riders did better in round two, however 
Tom Rollins put his best ride in during the 
first round. His stroked Yamaha 500 took him 
over in 7.75. à 

Iowa rider A.J. LuGrain crossed over into 
Illinois and took home top honors in the 
Senior class. LuGrain crested the hill in 6.93 
on a Yamaha. Jim Street took over the points 
lead in the D-17 standings with a second place 
finish. Street and Greg Haas had tied with 
runs of 8.02. Haas, who is not in the points 
running, elected to pass on his runoff ride 
giving Street the better placing. Haas was on 
a Yamaha while Street rode a Kawasaki.

Moran motors on 
at IMS Speedway 


By Scott Daloisio 


SAN BERNARDINO, CA, SEPT. 7 

Shawn Moran took his first look at John 
LaDouceur's Inland Motor Speedway and he 
apparently liked what he saw as he won both 
the Scratch and Handicap mains. 

Moran's performance in the eight-lap 
Handicap main can be described as nothing 
short of incredible. Starting back on the 40 
yard line, he had four other tough riders to 
keep him company. Bobby Schwartz, Billy 
Hamill, Phil Collins and Gary Hicks were 
with-him, but as soon as the tapes flew up, 
he was gone. 

Walt Farnum started on the 20 and led at 
the outset over Greg Hancock. All eyes quickly 
shifted to Moran and the A&E Transport/ 
IMS/Starline Guards/Life's a Beach GM as 
they were coming through the pack at an 
alarming rate. He raced around Hancock for 
second as they slid through turn three on the 
opening circuit. Seconds later, as they 
completed the first go around, Moran blasted 
er Farnum and drew a huge roar from the 
ans. 

Once he hit the head of the pack, nothin: 
was going to deny the 1983 World eem | 
Champion. He quickly pulled away from the 
pack and let the others battle for the minor 
placings. Hancock got by Farnum on the third 
circuit for second with Hicks and Schwartz 
also getting by Farnum before the end of the 
lap. 

Hicks advanced one more spot into second 
but he had no chance of catching Moran, who 
received a standing ovation for his marvelous 
effort. Third spot went to Hamill. 

Off of gate two at the start of the Scratch 
main, Moran edged Schwartz into the first 
turn. Steve Lucero held the third position with 
Hancock in the rear. 

Schwartz went wide off of turn two and a 
momentary park cost him as Lucero zipped 
past. It also allowed Moran to add to his 
advantage. Hancock fell in turn two on the 
second time around. 

Moran had a big lead at the halfway point 











while Schwartz was trying to fight for a shot 
at Lucero and the second place spot. As they 
came off four, Schwartz dashed around Lucero 
and moved into second. It was too late to catch 
Moran and Schwartz had a distant vantage 
point to Moran's first IMS win. Lucero slowed 
out of the final turn but he had enough 
momentum to cross the line in third.

Schwartz again at 
Ascot Speedway 


By Scott Daloiso 


GARDENA, CA, SEPT. 8 

It was business as usual for Bobby Schwartz 
at Chris Agajanian's Ascot South Bay Stadium 
on a night when international stars Shawn 
and Kelly Moran, and Lance King were in 
town. Schwartz turned them all back and won 
at Ascot for the 10th time in 1988. 

Schwartz and Kelly Moran were on a head- 
on collision course as they approached the 
main. Both were undefeated in Scratch racing. 
Moving the Budweiser/CTI Brace/STP/ 
K&N/Oakley-backed Weslake off of gate two 
on the start of the main, Schwartz rolled hard 
into the tapes twice and when they finally 
went up, he moved directly to the point. Phil 
Collins, Moran and Scott Brant gave chase, 
but once Schwartz has the lead at Ascot, he 
is extremely hard to pass. 

Riding the dirt line, Schwartz immediately 
gave up the inside as the field roared off turn 
two. Collins tried to hook up down low and 
make a move for the lead. It didn't work and 
it allowed Moran to make an outside move. 
Moran turned in a couple of hard-riding 
outside laps and he found himself past 
Collins. 

Moran went too hard into turn one on the 
third lap with Collins almost getting back by 
him on the inside. Before Collins could make 
the move, Moran pegged the throttle on his 
Weslake and shut him off. 

Moran changed strategy on the final circuit 
and tried to fool Schwartz. He switched to 
the inside line and tried to run it in hard on 


. the pace setter as they hit turn three. Schwartz 


was ready for the assault and he slammed the 
door in Moran's face and led the rest of the 
way to the checkered. 

Collins took to the track a few seconds later 
for the Handicap main, and he came from 
the back yardage for the win. 

Greg Hancock was the early pace setter over 
Tuff McBride and Scotty Brown. Collins had 
the Rovazzini Electric/STP/Reebok/JT 


- Racing Weslake past Brown and into third 


before they had completed a single lap. 

Gary Hicks powered his way past Collins 
on the second revolution to take over the show 
place. Collins came right back and started a 
drive that propelled him to the lead. 

Hicks gave it a strong try but he had to 
settle for second. Third went to Hancock.

‘Chin up at - 
Labor Day RR 


By R. Chambers 

FAULKVILLE, GA, SEPT. 3-4 

Mark Chin was the fastest rider of the weekend 
at Roebling Road, site of round six in the 
Southeast AMA/CCS Regional Road Race 
Series. Rain from a tropical depression made 
things damp from time to time, but the hot 
sun and winds 8 ea dryed the surface, with 
the exception of turn one which was covered 
with water all weekend long. This may have 
kept the lap record from falling, as the 
quickest laps were only .3. seconds off the 
record. 

Those times were turned by Mark Chin and 
Jeff Farmer as they battled for Yamaha 
contingency money on the 1.5-mile, nine turn 
course. Chin on his Wisco, DynaJet-sponsored 
Yamaha 1000FZR held the lead in -the 
Unlimited Grand Prix class, but Farmer 
trailed by no more than eight bike-lengths for 
the entire 10 laps on his FZR750. Farmer came 
up half a bike-length short at the checkered 

lag. 

It looked like an instant replay in Heavy- 
weight Superbike as Chin and Farmer, both 
on Yamaha 750's charged with renewed vigor. 
Again the times dropped into the 1.17s, but 
the record held. Chin masterfully worked 
traffic and won, this time by 2 and 1/2 lengths 
over Farmer who was on the K.P. Racing 
Longwood Cycle-sponsored Yamaha. Mark 
Walsh was a distant third in both events on 
his Bieffe Blitz Suzuki GSXR750, with John 
Choate on another Suzuki fourth. 


In Supertwins, Malcolme Tunstall proved 
his dominance over the 30-bike field, but not 
before a scare from the Robison Harley- 
Davidson of Randy Kirnec. The big Hog 
jumped into the lead for the first five laps 
with Tunstall closing in on his Syd’s Cycle 
Ducati. As the bikes crossed the line at the 
halfway point, Kirnec held the lead by five 
lengths. Rain began to fall as the pair entered 
turn one, so Tunstall saw the splatter on his 
bubble and backed off. Kirnec, continued on 
at a quick pace, but encountered wet turn five 
and was lucky to save a big slide. Kirnec had 
to motocross to get back on the track. By this 
time he had lost six positions, ending üp in 
seventh. Blaine Paulus rode his Moto Guzzi 
to second, and Frank Shockley took third on 
his Ducau.

Hayes wins Ottawa 
Hillclimb 


By Paul Hayes 

OTTAWA, IL, AUG. 28 

Paul Hayes rode his 1974 KX250 Kawasaki 
to his first ever overall at the recent hillclimb 
sponsored by the Variety Rider M/C. This 
event was round 13 of the D-17/AMA- 
sanctioned series. 

During the first round of climbs, only two 
riders in the 250cc class crested the 115 foot 
hill. Kawasaki rider Brent Stewart's first climb 
proved to be his best. Rounding out a 
Kawasaki sweep was Kelly Senn. He stopped 
the timers at 5:39. 

Tom Elmore took the lion’s share of the 
awards. He only needed two rides to win two 
classes. His first win came in the highly 
competitive 500cc class. Elmore set the time 
to beat on his Honda with a 3.81 climb. He 
then sat back in his lawn chair and waited. 
The closest anyone came was in round two 
when Chris Anderson recorded a 4.36. His run 
held for sefbnd overall. Anderson was on a 
KTM. Kawasaki rider Ron Todd, D-17's 
number one plate holder finished third. His 
best time was 4.39. 

Elmore again needed only one run to win 
the Open class. He also set the fastest time 
of the meet doing it. His Kawasaki blasted 
the hill in 3.58 seconds. Once again Tom got 
plenty of rest in his lawn chair. Frank Davis 
took his former Suzuki drag racing machine 
through the lights in 4.69 seconds during 
round two. Bob Fisher rounded out the top 
three with a ride one foot from the top. His 
Harley carried him out of bounds right in 
front of the timing lights. 

The Mini class belonged to Tom Daniels. 
He set the fast time on his first attempt. 
Kawasaki-mounted Daniels posted a 6.45. 
Another Kawasaki rider Jason Northrup 
claimed second. He bettered his first rider with 
a 6.74 final climb. Finishing third, only a 
couple of hundredths on the clock back was 





Casey Rick. This Honda rider put in the best 
finish of his career by taking third. His time 
was 6.77. .

repeat not on October 9 as has 
been listed in the Calendar section 
and elsewhere. 


American Built, the Hollywood 
movie about GP road racing that will 
be released next year, has spawned 
more than a celluloid legend. Pro- 
ducer John Gordon intends to spon- 
sor a top-level GP racing team in 
1989 as a publicity vehicle for the 
film. With team manager and former 
racer Chas Mortimer, he is hoping 
to get a Japanese V-4, probably a 
Honda, and has a short-list of riders. 
One is Donnie McLeod, who did 
sterling service on the Honda RS 
triple for the movie — although his 
companion in the film, Mike Bald- 

in, is out, after falling out with the 
producers over some trivial matter of 
delayed rental cars. Other names on 
he list include Randy Renfrow, Ron 
Haslam and former World Cham- 
pion endurance racer Patrick Igoa of 
France, whose Sonauto Gauloises 
ontract has run out. 


hen it comes to Hollywood, 
uth can be stranger than fiction. 
in American Built, villain Klaus 
Kroetter (Mike Baldwin) suc- 
umbs in the crucial race to an 
exploding seat — said to be rather 
an unusual problem in racing. Not 
so. In Brazil at the year-ending GP, 
Donnie McLeod rode his trusty RS 
lad in the film's bogus bodywork, 
n this case a modified Suzuki 
seat. But it was an untested unit, 
and it turned out that one of the 
exhausts was touching the fiber- 
glass. “I rode for as long as | could 
standing on the footpegs,” said 
cotsman McLeod. "Even then, 
my backside was getting blisters. 
| had to pit to put ice in my 
leathers.” A true Scot, he then 
ejoined the race, in order to 
ollect his (film contract) finishing 
imoney. 


Randy Mamola was the hero of the 
practice sessions at the Brazilian GP, 
with the most dramatic corner slid- 
ing anyone had ever seen on tarmac 
(see photo on page:10). He was 
coaxing smoke from the spinning 
rear tire, and getting the bike dram- 
atically sideways to the delight of 
photographers, who positioned 
themselves in such numbers on the 
crucial corner that they obscured the 
riders' vision, and had to be moved 
away. Mamola's former boss Kenny 
Roberts, watching from the side- 
lines, was not impressed. “It all 
depends if you want to be on TV 
— for winning races, or in a mag- 
azine — for getting sideways," said 
Roberts. 


The Swedish TT, an annual round 
of the World Championship Road 
Race Series, is no more. In 
advance of any decision to be 
reached by the management 
inside racing, the Swedish author- 
ities have decided to enforce the 
United Nations blacklist of sports- 
men with links with South Africa. 
Almost all the current top GP road 
racers have taken part in the 
South African GP, and are thus 
on the list. Mainly, it was a 
cancelation of convenience — for 
both the FIM and IRTA (the team's 
association) had the Swedish race 
at the top of their hit-list in the 
attempt to reduce the number of 
GP races in 1989 to a more 
manageable 14 (16 were sche- 
duled this year, but the Argentine 
GP was canceled — but next year 
the Australian GP joins the 
calendar). 








If my watch is on my left wrist, then 
Gary Scott must be... Our Ascot 
Park history feature in last week's 
newspaper contained a photo of 
Gary Scott and crew. Scott is on the 
right in the photo, in leathers, not 
on the left as the caption incorrectly 
said. 


Civil War buffs and cross.country 
racers should enjoy the October 
9 Whiskey Ridge Cross Country 
Grand Prix in Sharpsburg, Mary- 
land. The Gunpowder Valley 
M.C.-promoted AMA District 7 
event will start on a farm directly 
adjacent to the historic Antietam 
National Battlefield, which was 
the site of the bloodiest battle of 
the Civil War. The U.S. Army's 9th 
Corps bivouacked on the farm 
prior to the battle. In addition, 
President Abraham Lincoln stayed 
in the farm's manor house when 
he visited the site shortly after the 
battle. Camping on the farm will 
be permitted on Saturday night, 
October 8, so participants can 
come early and see the historic 
sights the day before the race 
which will be held on a five-mile 
"virgin" course. For additional 
information, call 301/679-2200 
during normal working hours. 


The AFM road race scheduled for 
October 1 at Arizona's Firebird 
Raceway has been canceled. 


MARRIED: California Vintage 
Racing Group (CVRG) secretary 
Patty Hammond to Cycle News 
contributor Mike Green on Sep- 
tember 17 in Dublin, California. 


Following the rain-out of the Sep- 
tember 17 final round of the AMA 
Eastern Regional Dirt Track Series 
at Hagerstown, Maryland, the AMA 
announced that Dan Ingram cap- 
tured the Expert Eastern Regional 
title, Kevin Atherton the Junior title, 
and Brian Tillson the Pro-Am 
crown. 


Expressions of sympathy can be 
sent to Wendy Green, the wife of 
dirt track racer Joel Green who 
lost his life at the September 4 
Springfield Mile, at 684 San Juan 
Grade Rd., Salinas, CA 93906. 


ENGAGED: Bryar Holcomb, pres- 
ident of Roko Sports Inc. of Cama- 
rillo, California, has announced his 
engagement to Joyce Baker of 
Canyon Country, California. The 
former motocross star asked the big 
question at sunset on a Santa Barbara 
beach. The wedding date is a year 
off. 


Dunlop, Gear Racewear, PJ1 and 
Scott have announced they'll 
sponsor special events — radio 
controlled car races, tug-o-war, 
horseshoe and volleyball tourna- 
ments — at the Thanksgiving Day 
weekend's Florida Winter Nation- 
als/Mini Olympics. Entries for the 
special events will be taken at the 
Winter Nationals. 


The Utah Sport Bike Association 
(USBA) will conclude its '88 race 
season with a four-hour endurance 
race at Wendover, Utah, October 2. 
The race will offer a guaranteed 
minimum purse of $900 for the top 
three finishers in both GTO and 
GTU ($500 for first, $300 for second, 
and $100 for third). The purse is 
being provided by Wendover USA 
and several local casinos and hotels. 
Additional money will be added to 
the purse from entry fees after a total 
of 10 teams are entered. Sprint races 
are scheduled for October 1. For race 
information, call USBA's hotline, 
801/582-1175, and leave a message. 





For lodging information, call Wen- 
dover USA at 702/664-3414. 


George Adams, long-time spon- 
sor of Sonny Burres and many 
other racers, recently underwent 
heart surgery at a Portland, 
Oregon, hospital. After some 
complications, Adams is feeling 
better and hopes to go home soon. 
Cards and letters can be sent to 
8865 Tiffany Ct., Clackamas, OR

Kawasaki Team Green will once 
again be offering pit support for-all 
Kawasaki-mounted off-road racers 
competing in the SCORE Baja 1000. 
However, this year there will be the 
following requirements: all entrants 
must have their entry in to SCORE 
by October 14 and all fuel will and 
must be provided by Team Green. 
Fuel will be Trick racing gas and 
Kawasaki racing oil, mixed 32:1. 
Entrants will be responsible for fuel 
costs only. For more information, 
contact Kawasaki of Riverside (Cali- 
fornia) at 714/683-8839 or Kawasaki 
Team Green at 714/770-0400. 


The second installment of a series 
of articles on the conversion of a 
Harley-Davidson 883 Sportster 
into a road racer has been 
unavoidably delayed. The bike’s 
owner, Cliff Carr, tells us that the 
engine has been breathed on by 
engine wizard Jerry Branch and 
Rob North is now hard at work 
on the chassis. 


American Honda will dedicate its 
new Rider Education Center in 
Colton, California, on October 11. 
According to Honda, the Rider 
Education Center is “the first-of-its- 
kind nationwide. The facility is 
dedicated to providing motorcyle, 
motor scooter and ATV rider edu- 
cation and training to the public. It’s 
the first motorcycle industry effort to 
build an all-inclusive training facil- 
ity — a range for practicing riding 
skills, a library for studying instruc- 
tional materials and safety tips, and 
a center for receiving training and 
certification by the Motorcycle Safety 
Foundation and the Specialty Veh- 
icle Institute of America. Law 
enforcement and government agen- 
cies will also use the facility.” 


CORRECTION: The correct 
phone number for Enzo Racing, 
the suspension setup company 
operated by Ross Maeda, is 714/ 
839-8741. Numbers were trans- 
posed in the phone number we 
listed for Enzo Racing in answer 
to a letter writer in our last issue. 


Frenchman Thierry Michaud rode 
his Fantic to a commanding win in 
the final round of the World Cham- 
pionship Observed Trials Series in 
Poland, September 11, to win the 
series title. Michaud topped runner- 
up Donato Miglio (Fan) of Italy, 55 
to 81. Finishing third in Poland with 
a score of 83 was defending World 
Champion Spaniard Jordi Tarres 
(Bet). The win by Michaud and third 
place finish by Tarres gave the 
Frenchman the title with the final 
point standings reading Michaud 
202, Tarres 197. Miglio finished the 
season in third with a total of 169 


points. 


The Great American Motorcycle & 
ATV Shows will continue under 
that banner during the 1988-89 
show season, but each individual 
show will be named for the market 
it serves, with the word "'interna- 
tional'' added, as in Atlanta Inter- 
national Motorcycle Show. And 
it's Atlanta that will host the first 





of seven shows at the World 
Congress Center, December 9- 
11. Also scheduled are shows in 
Washington, DC, January 6-8; St. 
Louis, January 13-15; San Fran- 
cisco, January 27-29; Chicago, 
February 24-26; and Philadelphia, 
March 3-5. 


Also receiving a name change are the 
Edgell Expositions-produced Motor- 
cycle & ATV Expos which in 1988- 
89 will be called Power Sports Expos. 
The Power Sports Expos will take 
place in Anaheim, California, 
December 2-4; Boston, Massachu- 
setts, January 6-8; Daytona Beach, 
Florida, March 9-11; and Houston, 
Texas, March 17-19. “The motorcy- 


cle industry is changing and the 


shows need to grow and change with 
the industry," said Carla Rose, vice 
president for Edgell Expositions. 
"Motorcycle manufacturers, distrib- 
utors and dealers are expanding their 
inventories to’ include not only 
motorcycles but also watercraft, 
ATVs, scooters and more.” 


Starting slots for the October 16 
50cc True Grits Road Reliability 
Run in Suches, Georgia, are still 
open. The "world's biggest little 
run'' is limited to 50cc bikes, and 
in the past has drawn the likes of 
Bob Hannah, Gary Bailey and 
John Penton, not to mention TV 
stars Dave Despain and Larry 
Maiers, to the north Georgia 
mountains. Despite the fact that 
promoter Ben Cheatwood tells us 
starting slots are available, the 
event is advertised as being “by 
invitation only.” So, how do you 
get invited? Call Bob Lenk at 404/ 
963-5477 and give him one good 
reason why you should be.

Motorcycle Mechanics Institute's 
Phoenix, Arizona, and Orlando, 
Florida, schools will serve as 
Yamaha's exclusive technical 
schools for motorcycle techni- 
cians and dealer training. Yamaha 
is the first Japanese-based motor- 
cycle manufacturer to engage an 
outside firm for dealer training. 
Dennis Hendrix, service training 
manager for Yamaha Motor Cor- 
poration, U.S.A., said, "Our dealer 
network wants higher-trained 
technicians. The technology of 
today's vehicles has grown so 
much over the last 10 years that 
untrained mechanics just can't 
keep up. Our dealers are looking 
for factory-trained technicians 
who can do it all.” Hendrix said 
that Yamaha currently trains 
around 1300 people annually in 
its four regional schools but addi- 
tional facilities were needed to 
best serve the company's dealef 
network. ''Let's face it," said 
Hendrix. “‘It’s hard for any motor- 
cycle manufacturer to increase its 
in-house training programs when 
sales are down industry-wide. 
We've got an excellent relation- 
ship with MMI, so utilizing their 
professional staff and facilities 
was a logical step for us... 
We're looking at MMI as if it were 
another Yamaha training facility. 
The curriculum in their Yamaha 
programs is identical to our in- 
house programs — first rate.”
