hey call it the deer in the headlights look and I've seen it often. This guy who can reduce a fully assembled vintage motorcycle to a million nuts and bolts and a frame, restore every piece and then put it all back together in perfect working order, totally freezes up and seems incapable of answering if I ask him what he wants for lunch. It's happened too many times to count. He has definite ideas of what he wants to eat, but he just can't seem to figure out exactly what it is at this particular time. So daily, we go through the ritual. He's hungry, I'm more than willing (did I say more than willing? Since I'm really not gifted in kitchen tasks, that's a slight exaggeration), but I am there surrounded by lunch options and patiently waiting for his response. I look away, then look back. He's really pondering this question, so much so it would lead one to believe that all of the mysteries of the universe are about to be resolved when he finally gives

his answer. At first he does seem to be seriously considering his response, but then the look in his eyes changes. They're more intense. And now I know for a fact he has totally forgotten the question about lunch and is back mentally working out the technical difficulties on his most current project. That's why he's called the guyin-the-garage. He's always there even if physically he can be seen somewhere else. I continue to wait, slowly getting items out of the refrigerator and cabinets that I think I'll need for the lunch I'm eventually going to prepare. Sometimes I even stop and make my own lunch and give some consideration to what we might have for dinner. Then I'll check back with him. His eyes focus and it's clear he knows I'm waiting for an answer. But do I get one? No. Instead a question. "What did you ask me?" "Do you want a half a sandwich or a whole one today?" This guy who discovered recently he's gained five pounds over his high school weight, has vowed to cut back til he trims down. Sigh. Whereas I on the other hand am a tad bit higher than five pounds over the weight of those same long ago days and my patience is wearing thin. He finally knows the answer. "Half." I pop the bread in the toaster and prepare to assemble the masterpiece, only to notice he has disappeared. Long after the sandwich is ready and all the side dishes I'm offering him to go along with

this sparse main course are sitting on the counter, he finally strolls back into the kitchen, notepad in hand. "Where have you been?" I ask him. "I had to wash my hands." I see him studying the notepad and I know while he was gone that besides washing his hands, he was also making notes on what he needs to do for the next half of the day, where he wants to go tomorrow, what his goals are for the month, etc. etc. I briefly thought about telling him there were probably germs on the pen he wrote with after washing his hands, but I didn't want to give him any ideas about disappearing again. Besides it wouldn't have been out of genuine concern for his hygeine, but more just to annoy him. A little payback for making me wait forever for the answer. They say the definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different outcome. And I agree that's probably true. So maybe there is a touch of insanity lurking somewhere inside of me, because when he came up to the house for dinner late that afternoon, I said, "I don't have anything planned for dinner. Got any suggestions?" I'm still waiting for his answer. E

ith a heavy heart I have to announce the passing of my father Tony Boswell. After a long and arduous fight against covid he is now in God’s kingdom. This has not only been a very trying time for my mother Barb and my brother Chase but all our loved ones, family, and friends. I would describe my dad’s character as honorable, caring, selfless, and very determined. Most of you may know my dad loved to ride and race motorcycles. I remember as a child when he won his first ironman race and was awarded a trophy of a man holding a motorcycle over his head. I thought of my dad as a hero and a legend, and I still do to this day. There came a time in his life where he took his love for the sport and decided to turn it into a business. One that would allow him to control his own destiny, be his own boss, and provide for his family. He knew this would not be easy and would take hard work and dedication. From this passion he started Vintage Suzuki. What began as restoring vintage bikes he loved to ride blossomed into a business that later led to us acquiring Ceet Racing and Hi-Flite USA. One man's determination turned into the true essence of an American family business. He was not only the rock of our family but the leader of these companies. If he were still here he would thank each and everyone of you who have supported us over the years. We ask all of our current, prior, and future customers to please be patient and understanding as we adjust to our new situation without him. My grandmother told me the motto he was raised on was “when the going gets tough, we get tougher” and I believe these words of wisdom are something we can all learn from. For anyone that would like to support us thru these hard times a Go Fund Me has been set up for any medical or financial hardships we may face. Please visit www.gofundme.com and search "Help Tony’s Family After His Sudden Passing" The next time you give a twist on the throttle please give my dad a healthy rev in his honor. God Bless. - Brock Boswell

NEWS "UNITE, INFORM AND MOBILIZE"

The American Sand Association's primary objective is to "UNITE, INFORM and MOBILIZE" the sand duning community to protect the right to ride on all public lands in a responsible, environmentally balanced manner.

Sleuthing the Secrets of Peirson’s Milkvetch By Art Phillips, Ph.D.

R

iding around in the dunes with some of the most expert drivers and searching for rare plants – every botanist’s dream! I was truly blessed to be able to do just that for seven years, make some great friends, and learn all kinds of interesting things about the unique flora of the Algodones dunes. The odyssey started in early 2000 when Peirson’s milkvetch (PMV), a small denizen of the dunes that had been listed as a Threatened species a few years before, became the focal point of a lawsuit by the Center for Biological Diversity. Their claim was that the BLM was not managing for the conservation of the species, and the result was a closure to OHV use of some 49,000 acres of the Algodones dunes. The response was the formation of ASA and a concerted effort to find out what was going on – and to reopen the large proportion of the dunes that had suddenly become off-limits to vehicular recreational use. I was asked if I could help. Having had some 25 years of experience working with Endangered Species matters, and 30 years or so traipsing through the deserts of the Southwest, this sounded to me like an interesting project, and a problem that I might be able to help unravel. I spent a day duning with folks such as Grant George, looking at PMV all over the place and quickly learning how to hang on! That evening I sat down with the ASA board for a frank discussion of how they perceived the situation and what I had learned about the plant. ASA president Bob Mason said, “We know we have a problem. We don’t want to jeopardize the plant, but we want to keep the dunes open for the recreation that our community loves.” I liked that approach. I told the Board that I would be glad to study the situation but as a scientist who works hard to maintain objectivity and has frequently worked “on the

14

other side” of rare plant conflicts I could not guarantee what my conclusion would be. Bob said “I like that. You’re just the man we want.” Thus was born a seven-year collaboration. Fortunately the winter of 2000-01 had been unusually rainy, and PMV and its plant-world neighbors had responded accordingly. In short, it was “all over the place!” Well, not quite; one of the first things I observed, which the drivers I was with knew well, was that it is actually found in specialized predictable places, along with the dozen or so other plants that have adapted to living in this special, very difficult habitat. Shifting sand, low rainfall, and long hot summers do not make for your typical ideal plant environment. The plant inhabitants typically grew more or less together in bowls and such places where the sand was somewhat stable and where moisture was retained in the sand a few inches deep.

Duners don’t like places like that. They are full of dead wood and shrubs like Wiggins’ croton and desert buckwheat. Their stiff, sharp dead branches are all over the sand just waiting to puncture a buggy tire. When run over, the living plants explode in a shower

of twigs that is rather unpleasant for riders. While the slipfaces are fun to run, the floors of the bowls with their miniature forests are to be avoided. So they don’t go there, as many duners have told me. Having quickly learned that PMV doesn’t grow everywhere, we set out to find specific places where it does occur. With the aid of the rather new technology of GPS we scoured the dunes for places where it grows. We found and mapped some 128 places in the open areas. The initial survey involved dozens of duners; this volunteer help was absolutely essential to the success of the mission. Sites were circumscribed using the GPS, and PMVs were counted. Altogether we counted more than 71,000 plants, at sites ranging from just a few to nearly 4,000 individuals. We rounded out the 2001 surveys with a helicopter survey of the closures, allowing us to locate and note PMV occurrences. From this we prepared a map of PMV distribution throughout the dune system. This map, with revisions, was used by both BLM and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in subsequent documents. Next we developed a multi-year project visiting 25 randomselected sites each year to count plants, note their ages and flowering condition, and correlate their success with seasonal rainfall. As all duners know, some years at ISD are rainy and others are nearly rain-free. Some years we found thousands of PMV; other years a few hundred; sometimes almost none. The shrubs endure the drought; PMV relies on a seed bank, where seeds remain dormant in the sand during dry times and germinate by the thousands when it has been wet.

Again, the duning community responded magnificently to help out with transporting us from site to site and getting involved with the counting, giving up part of their weekends to help the cause. This went on for seven years. It was a magnificent group effort. Another piece of the puzzle was to study the seed bank. We wanted to find out how many seeds were dormant in the sand, just waiting for the right conditions to germinate and grow. We carried out seed bank studies twice, using metal frames pushed into the sand and sifting sand through soil sieves to capture seeds, then extrapolating to the whole dune system. Our estimate was that over 3 million seeds lay dormant in the sand, a number that was consistent between the two seed bank studies. While living plant numbers vary greatly between seasons, the dormant seeds are there, just waiting … Again, many volunteers made it possible, sifting hundreds of pounds of sand to capture the sleeping seeds. Our studies provided a well-rounded and objective view of the ecology, distribution, and life history of PMV. In the end the closures were not eliminated, but they reduced significantly and redrawn to fit the plant’s distribution. It was truly a joint effort with many botanists and other plant lovers, along with many duners providing expertise and logistical support that together made a robust study possible. Those trips and the friendships they kindled are an outstanding memory for me. Now if we can only succeed in getting pass-throughs, opening safety corridors through places where PMV does not occur in the Critical Habitat … E

I’m a brand ambassador for Synergy Manufacturing and Adamsdriveshaft

This is my Jeep “Extinction.” The Jurassic park theme started with the license plate and went on from there. The number 29 is a special number to me but is also a number from the original movie. And that’s how we came up with the name extinction. CURRENT MODS: Synergy Manufacturing Parts - 3” Coil Springs - Adjustable Front Lower & Rear Upper control arms - Front Track Bar Brace - Extended Braided Brake Lines - Front Lower Shock Mounts - Heavy Duty Ball Joints - to be installed soon.

I started wheeling back in late 2019. I took the Off Road Consulting 101 course at Rausch Creek Off Road Park in Pennsylvania. That’s when I got bit by the “wheeling bug.“ I started on Green trails which are the easiest at Rausch Creek and have worked my way up to blue which are the Moderate trails at Rausch. After that is black/red trails which are the hardest at Rausch. I mainly wheel at Rausch but I have also visited AOAA and would like to get out there more. I love being out on the trails, meeting new friends, learning new obstacles, and really getting to know my Jeep. In the future I plan to travel to many off-road parks and to get out west, that would be my dream. I have many future plans for Extinction as far as the build process goes: upgraded axles, gears, body armor, you name it, we’re going to get it done. - Ashley Irwin / Extinction_Jku (Instagram) Newsmantown, PA

he MAFUZAR Motorsports team of Mario Fuentes, who teamed up with Jason Dudley for this year's Baja 500, and navigator Mike Voyles Jr. raced the #179 Jimco Hammerhead Class 1 car to a third place finish at the Baja 500. More than half of the field in Class 1 did not make the finish highlighting the difficulty of this year’s course. The podium finish earns the team their third podium in a row, following a hardfought third place finish at the 2021 San Felipe 250. After battling through bottlenecks and silt beds as well as the stacked field of racers, the team completed the brutal 466-mile loop with a time of 12:36:12.777 testing their team and vehicle’s resolve. The race started and finished just outside of Ensenada, Baja California crossing just over halfway across the unforgiving peninsula before heading south from Valle de La Trinidad up over the Sierra de San Pedro Mártir mountain range to San Quintin then turning back north racing along the stunning Baja coastline back to Ensenada. “We had some issues with the transaxle the day before the race. I went to bed not knowing if we were going to be able to race. With some help from the Jimco Crew my team figured it out, got what needed to be done and I woke up to a car ready to race. Off the start I just ran at my own pace, I wanted to take care of the vehicle. I let the fast guys pass us in the first 100 miles. The Wilson’s and Parkhouse families have a ton of experience over us and they are all driving Jimco Hammerhead Class 1 cars. I knew that other racers were going to have problems and make mistakes on this course. We passed back some of the faster guys before I hit a cattle guard and got stuck for a bit until I got pulled out. I handed the car over to Jason Dudley at Race mile 275 and he brought it in to the finish for a third place!" stated Fuentes. Fuentes continued, "It was a hot day with tons of silt beds. It was a really technical course. Lots of pre-running and notes helped us a lot. We are putting more time into pre-running before races and it’s paying off. Thanks to all my crew at MAFUZAR Motorsports from Juarez, Robbie Pierce and Jimco Racing, and Justin Lofton and his crew. Special thanks to my main sponsors Hiper Gas Energy Resources and Baja Gas and Oil, also thanks to Dougans Racing Engines, Jimco Racing Inc, Fortin Racing, and BFGoodrich Tires. This is our first full year of racing Class 1 in SCORE and we are having a blast and learning a lot! I am ready to go back for the Baja 400 in September!!” Look for Mario Fuentes to continue his quest for the 2021 SCORE Desert Championship in the upcoming Baja 400 September 14th - 19th, 2021 E

he BLM Desert Advisory Council had a meeting recently (your's truly is on the council). The all-day zoom meeting covered some topics of interest to off-roaders. The Western Mojave Route Network project is making progress. Known to the advisory council as WEMO, it has been litigated for decades by the Center for Biological Diversity. Litigation finally ended and the BLM is marking and fixing routes made official in the plan. The roads into Dumont Dunes are being repaired. Vinagre Wash area got input from Walters Camp to make some new trails. Staff continue to improve the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail and Backcountry Discovery Trail in El Centro's area. Flat-tailed Horned Lizard monitoring took place and they found a total of 151 lizards on BLM land. This is important

because there is a constant threat to Ocotillo Wells with the FTHL being listed as threatened. When the BLM finds this many lizards, it bodes well for us. A resurfacing project in the dunes between Wash 9-14 has been taking place with the goal to make it easier to get back in there when the season begins. The DAC asked the BLM to form advisory groups to look at the Mojave Trails National Monument and for Special Recreation Permits. There was a presentation on the desert tortoise, the single biggest cause of lost off-road vehicle access in California. They talked about the three biggest threats to the tortoise: vehicle strikes, disease and ravens. For vehicle strikes they have been putting low tortoise fences along highways. Kind of expensive, but saves a lot of them. The disease part was really interesting to me. They looked at a group of tortoises and found them all to have that upper respiratory virus, but no symptoms. They believe that tortoises that were not bothered by the virus survived. The threat that is the most trouble is ravens. With intelligence and excellent vison, the raven circles up in the sky looking for critters on the ground. When a clutch of tortoise eggs hatch, a raven will likely see and come down for a meal. The big problem to the species is there are no juveniles. If you ever have seen the big fence around the dumpsters in Ocotillo Wells, you should know @BornDirtyIndustries Desiree Bates comfirmed she will be designing the Lost Lizard 2021 Superstition Clean up trophies for most trash collected, biggest piece that they are there to keep ravens of trash, and most unique find as well as hosting the cleanup part of our event. out of the trash and to hopefully 42

S&S OFF ROAD MAGAZINE - SEPTEMBER 2021 - www.ssorm.com


keep the raven numbers down. A reasonable idea to stop the ravens is to shoot them. Problem with that is that they are protected by the Migratory Bird Act. The BLM is talking to Fish and Wildlife about getting a waiver so they can get permission to shoot some ravens. There was a presentation about the Rebelle Rally that is coming in October. This is a 10 day, all woman, no electronic navigation, competition that will start in Reno and end in the Imperial Sand Dunes. SDORC's own Audrey Mason and Nicole Honstead will be competing. We will be pulling for them and wish them all the best of luck. SDORC will be sponsoring a cleanup on Otay Mountain on September 25 from 9:00 am to noon. We noticed there is a fair amount of trash along the routes there and we would like to help out. The BLM will have a dumpster on the east side of the mountain. I will be driving up the west side from Pio Pico campground. Please join us to help out and see the spectacular view from the top of the mountain. On SDORC Dirt Radio we recently talked about Jeep Death Wobble. Many Jeeps suffer from a violent front end shake

at speed after hitting a bump. What is interesting about this is that there is a class action lawsuit being formed about this problem. If your Jeep is old or modified, that is one thing, but some pretty new and stock jeeps have been getting Death Wobble too. We will be watching this and will keep you posted. The Lost Lizard Fun Run is fast approaching and we hope all of you will plan to join us. It is a fun event and helps keep our organization viable. We have signed up an ice cream vendor who says anyone in uniform gets a free ice cream. Could be Boy Scouts or military. Pre entry is now open at https://sdorc.org/funrun-2021/ E

ual sport motorcycles have always gotten a bad rap from "real" dirt bikers. Heavy, slow and soft, they don't go like real dirt bikes. Back in the 1990's I got into dual sporting and Baja traveling. I used Honda XR600's mostly. I loved the XR600 for the big power and smooth suspension. I didn't really like the weight though. Still, I put a lot of quality time on my Hondas. I remember riding up to Mike's Sky Ranch doing 4th gear drifts in the big uphill turns. If you like jumping (I did) or riding fast on rough ground, the XR was not so good. I was fortunate to also own motocross bikes to really go nuts on. Back then, it was not very difficult to make a bike like the XR600 street legal. Add some lights, stop by a shop for a brake and light certificate and bring your checkbook to the DMV. Walk out with a California license plate. All that ended in 2003 due to the air pollution people. Now with red sticker bikes no longer being allowed to be registered in California, the appeal of quality dual sport dirt bikes is growing. Good thing KTM, Beta, Husqvarna, Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Gas Gas are making highly capable street legal dirt bikes. Some of these are capable of being raced competitively with not too many modifications. Take a KTM (or Husqvarna) 350 or 500, pull off the street stuff, change pipe and ECU, turn in the compression damping adjusters and you have a real race bike. Never discount the beauty of having that license plate, though. You can park in Pine Valley and ride Bear Vally Road and Kernan Cycle Trail into Corral Canyon, run a few trails there and then ride out to Morena Village for a sandwich and drink. Anza Borrego Desert State Park has 500 miles of routes and all require a license plate. One great thing about Anza Borrego is whoops are few and far between. You can always take a plated bike anywhere a green or red sticker bike can go. There is never a need for "dual registration." Dual sport motorcycles make more sense now than ever to own. I hear with the pandemic, new dual sports are hard to find and used ones are harder to find and expensive. Still, they are worth the trouble and expense. I would encourage anyone who loves to ride dirt bikes to seriously consider getting a dual sport motorcycle. I love my FE501 E

Big Bear Day

SAN DIEGO JEEP CLUB

By Beth Santisteban and Jessi Puffenbarger www.sdjc.rocks

J

uly 17, 2021 was a great day for San Diego Jeep Club

members as we held our annual Big Bear Day event. Big Bear is a small mountain community located 145 miles from San Diego so it is quite a commitment for our members to join us there.

Big Bear boasts some of the most beautiful scenery with a variety of terrain and the cooler weather (72 degrees) is perfect for our summer events as the local San Diego deserts can reach some pretty scalding temperatures in July.

S&S OFF ROAD MAGAZINE - SEPTEMBER 2021 - www.ssorm.com


Members were able to attend one of three runs ranging in difficulty from an easy, stock capable run for the beginners, an intermediate run for the more experienced folks and a challenging Jeep badge of honor trail run was attended by invite only. All runs were expertly led by knowledgeable trail bosses, aided by Black Ops or board members in various strategic positions throughout the train plus mid gunner and tail positions to ensure that a good, safe run was enjoyed by everyone who attended. The easy run, a group of 34 Jeeps, was led by Joe Caldwell, mid gunner was Patrick Espinoza and tail gunner was Beth Santisteban. After airing down, our day began with a 9:00 a.m. drivers meeting at the corner of Green Valley Lake Road and Crab Flats Road where we shared the area with lots of other off-road vehicles gearing up for their day on trail. This run started from Crab Flats on the 3N16. The 3N16 is patrolled by the Mountain Ranger district and is used as a main connector trail to get to other well known trails such as Gold Mountain, John Bull and Holcomb. During our 26-mile trek, we enjoyed a variety of terrain from small brush to towering pines, oaks and cedar trees, plus everything in-between. Our highest elevation was 7500 feet and we enjoyed some beautiful views along the way. Group communications were via ham radios where we were reminded to keep the Jeep behind us in sight for safety reasons and so we could stay together as a group. We also discussed a multitude of topics including the Big Bear Zoo, cost is $15,

to the length of pine cones, all the while we also were sending and receiving trail information and directions to our members throughout the train. Since this was the easy run, there were no obstacles besides some rutting of the road to discuss. This gentle trail travels through two campgrounds, Holcomb Valley campground which is located approximately five miles north of Big Bear in the San Bernardino National Forest and Crab Flats campground which is approximately six miles away from Green Valley Lake. We slowed and waved to campers in the area as we tried to keep the dust down for them. We took a nice lunch break alongside the trail under some gorgeous pines. The lunch stop is one of my favorite things as everyone has a chance to mingle and check out all the other rigs. Many lasting friendships are made during these breaks. You can often see some of our crew picking up trash that has been left behind by others. Our run concluded near the Big Bear dump where we aired up and said our goodbyes. The White Mountain trail is our intermediate trail for Big Bear Day. The run started just past the Hanna Flats Campground. It is a scenic drive to our meetup spot passing many campground areas. After airing down, disconnecting our sway bars, and a short drivers meeting we headed out to the trailhead. Our trail boss was Antonni Bruening, midgunner Dirk Reschly, and tail gunner was Kathryn Robinson. We had 24 Jeeps in total on the run. The trail features some wonderful views of the San Bernadino Mountain range. At the start of the trail, there is a small hill climb with striking views to the right of Johnson Valley far below. After cresting the top of the hill, we encountered the first obstacle. It was a small step-down ledge that you could approach from different angles depending on skill level and vehicle ability. On any obstacle, the San Diego Jeep Club always offers help spotting drivers to ensure that even the newest off-roader gains experience and confidence in their Jeep. Trail Boss Antonni, took the lead on spotting. We all met at an open spot just past the obstacle to regroup and capture a photo to commemorate the day. After a short break we continued on the trail to the shelf roads. This area of the trail is not a passible section so we have to be sure that our group stays together. There are a 48

S&S OFF ROAD MAGAZINE - SEPTEMBER 2021 - www.ssorm.com

few sections that will accommodate pull off so groups can pass each other. This section has spectacular views on either side of both the forest and valleys below. There was one more section that had step down shelves but nothing a stock Jeep can’t do with a little patience and spotting. The last part of the trail features a few downhill switchbacks and one with a slight off camber. Once we hit the bottom of the mountain, we turned onto Grapevine Canyon trail (4N16) and headed back to our air up spot. This trail has many great offshoots as well as places to disperse camp. The hard run was led by Rick Ruddell on the Gold Mountain Trail. Mid-gunner was Bob Beres and tail gunner was Brian Turner. For the harder trails, we like to keep a smaller group since more spotting is involved. This group of 12 Jeeps started early since this is a popular trail in Big Bear. At the trail head you will notice a bunch of rocks stacked and arranged in a road like pattern. The forest service has planned to close off the side road with a gate and make this rock garden the entrance to Gold Mountain. After airing down, they headed out to begin the day. Not far from the start of Gold Mountain are the two gatekeepers with both hard lines and easy lines depending on your rig and skill level. Once past the gatekeepers


the trail meanders to the top of the mountain. Here is a great spot for lunch, a few photos, and just taking in the amazing views from both sides. Continuing down the trail a garden of shale rocks is encountered. This is affectionately called by some the bone yard for the sound that the rocks make as you drive over them. The last part of the trail is a series of switchbacks through a wooded area. It is quite scenic. Everyone made it off trail with time to spare and so they decided to run another trail. Big Bear has so many areas to explore. There are trails that feature rock crawling, dirt roads, and some that are great moderate to intermediate trails with a mix of both easy and challenging sections. Be sure to follow all trail signs. Camping is highly recommended for a weekend trip or a vacation. The terrain is vastly different and there are many historic sites throughout the Big Bear area. Each year the San Diego Jeep Club invades Big Bear. Stay tuned to see where we will take you next year! E

The Freedom to go Four Wheeling Green Lake

C

oming back from an Independence Day outing, I took some time to reflect on this amazing hobby. Over the years I’ve enjoyed countless hours admiring many fascinating places in the western US. There are so many possibilities open to fourwheeling that at times it’s easy to take this all for granted. Four-wheelers know that driving privileges on public lands can be curtailed or eliminated. Responsible drivers are diligent about taking care of property and following the rules. But when we act responsibly – and encourage others to do the same – we help ensure a future for this fun hobby. As I reflected further, I came up with five broad categories or qualities that we can celebrate about four-wheeling.

Magnificent natural areas to explore Four wheelers have access to numerous state parks, federal parks, and BLM lands. The views can be stunning and the experiences last a lifetime. Some locations are only accessible by a 4WD vehicle. 52

Access to those public properties continues because 4WD enthusiasts are responsible individuals. They adhere to Tread Lightly!, “Pack It In, Pack It Out,” and other principles that promote good stewardship.

A hobby that allows us to enrich our driving skills while we explore Four-wheeling often exposes drivers to various obstacles and challenges, such as crevices, soft terrain, steep hills, and rocky terrain. Skills gained mastering off-road obstacles can be applied to urban environments. Driving in snow, for example, uses many of the same techniques employed for sand or soft terrain. Another example entails avoiding an accident on the freeway. Because you’re experienced driving in tight spaces, you can recognize an opening between crashed vehicles that other drivers won’t. You confidently slip through, knowing full well where your front and back wheels are.

S&S OFF ROAD MAGAZINE - SEPTEMBER 2021 - www.ssorm.com


Great vehicles that help us enjoy our hobby Newer vehicles come equipped with features designed for off-road use. Some of those features include hill descent, traction control, anti-sway bar disconnects, and front axle disconnects. The downside, though, is that all those new buttons can be intimidating. Instruction classes on the proper use of these features allow drivers to take full advantage of everything their vehicles offer.

Peer support in the four-wheeling community Thousands of like-minded people are willing to share their knowledge and skills with others. This is really evident when there is a breakdown. Other drivers – sometimes total strangers – stop by to help get a disabled Saline Valley vehicle back on the trail. Many four-wheelers post blogs, host podcasts, and offer other educational tools to educate audiences on the finer points of this hobby.

Strong organizations backing our cause Professional associations, hobby publications, and fourwheeling groups further educate on the many aspects of fourwheeling. They encourage drivers to obey the rules and be courteous when off-road. These organizations also work to spread a positive image of four-wheeling. They educate the lay public on the positive aspects of our hobby while dispelling many of the myths.

A four-wheel drive vehicle represents a degree of freedom

Suspension Without Compromise

It allows us to go places and see things that not everybody can. But there’s so much more to the hobby. And the memories of time spent with friends and family members are cherished for a lifetime. Having the freedom to go four-wheeling is truly something special to celebrate.

ourse conditions were the first topic of conversation for each competitor as they crossed the finish line. Recent thunderstorms, the route selected, including the notoriously grueling final section, made this year’s Vegas to Reno course extremely challenging. With points towards Maxxis Triple Crown prize money at stake, Best In The Desert’s normal purse, and the title of Vegas to Reno champion, racers were throttling hard and fast to be first. In the end, Dalton Shirey/Jacob Argubright riding a Factory Husqvarna were the first Open Pro Motorcycle team, staving off challenges from Dakar and reigning V2R champ Ricky Brabec and the Kilmartin Racing N1 Hayden Hintz/Trevor Hunter team to take not only the overall motorcycle victory but the outright overall victory in a time of 7:44:10. Shirey/Argubright broke the tie between motorcycles and cars/trucks, earning bragging rights for the record of most overall wins at V2R, now 13 for motorcycles and 12 for cars/trucks. As for the Car/Truck Class, Ryan Arciero truly was a phoenix rising from the ashes winning with a brand new truck in 7:56:49 after his previous one burned to the ground at last year’s V2R. Arciero’s win did not come easy as two-time defending champion Bryce Menzies was hungry and leading overall until Pit 11 where a front differential issue caused him to drop out. Best In The Desert favorite and veteran Trick Truck racer Steve Olliges put in one of the best races of his career coming home second in 8:10:10 edging Black Rifle Coffee’s BJ Baldwin out by a mere 44 seconds who finished in third place, respectively. Meanwhile, Brenthel Racing’s Kyle Jergensen was never out of the hunt for the overall, finishing fourth in Trick Trucks. The #1 Concrete Motorsports Thompson/Letner team’s phenomenal streak of overall wins finally came to an end after a rearstart position resulting from a crash in Time Trials put them at a severe disadvantage. However, they still came back to finish seventh in class with a time of 8:32:22; an impressive feat. The 2021 Trick Truck Class was made up of a who’s who of off-road racing, an example of what the offroad racing sport has become. Class 6100 was another barnburner of a race with #6172 Dustin Grabowski taking home the win after

Andrew Garvey out of El Centro in the UTV Turbo class years of coming oh-so-close, finally putting everything together to finish in 8:08:06. Brent Fox switched his Class 1500 ride for a 6100 entry and came home second in 8:22:14 with Brenthel Racing’s own Jordan Brenthel rounding out the podium just two minutes back at 8:24:16 just an amazing 3/10ths of a second separating him from fourth place finisher #6164 Pierce Herbst and defending V2R Class 6100 champ #6153 Ray Griffith in fifth place with a time of 8:24:45. The ever-growing Class 6200 was won by #6201 Nick Carolan in 8:22:42 followed by Austin Largent in 9:05:20 and Conner McMullen who suffered technical issues but still persevered for a finish. For the first time in a while, the Class 6100 winner set fast time against the 6200s. Turnout in Class 1500 was phenomenal with 11 racers taking the start. The James and Jordan Dean #1575 car was first across the line with a time of 8:10:32 followed by Sam Berri in 8:27:51, his 25th Vegas to Reno having never missed a race since 1996. Third place went to Morgan Langley in 9:05:58. Class 1000 was fully loaded with 13 top teams and drivers. In the end, Matt Rusich in the #1045 car took the class win in a time of 8:48:16. Second went to Wheeler Morgan just barely over five minutes behind in

Jax Redline, Amarillo TX finished 10th Trick Truck 8:53:56. John Van Hattem rounded out the podium in third place with a time of 9:13:11. Jeff Proctor had his #7209 Honda Ridgeline hitting on all cylinders and finishing in a time of 9:06:06 to take Class 7200. The Proctor Racing Team has had a phenomenal year winning wherever they go. Other Car/Truck Class entries of note include Class 7300 won by Sean Berryman in 13:00:11 and of course it would not be Vegas to Reno without a “Hall” in the winner’s circle with Chad Hall knocking down the Class 1200 win in his painfully stock Chevrolet in 12:58:36. In the Jeepspeed competition, Class 4700 was won by Andrew Hulse and Class 1700 by Tim Martin, respectively. Craig Christy won Vintage C/T Class 4500 in his ultra-clean Chevy truck in 15:38:41. TrophyLites was a battle between #6012 Greg Bragg finishing in 11:03:00, #6077 Luke Knupp in 11:29:28, and #6013 John Ferrari in 11:43:26. A record turnout of 135 UTVs entered the 2021 Maxxis Tires “Casey Folks” Vegas to Reno Presented by Fox with all four main pro classes UTV Turbo Production, UTV Unlimited, UTV Open, and UTV Production N/A loaded with the best teams the sport has to offer.

Turbo Production entries started the race. Throughout the day, as many as eight different teams had a legitimate shot at the class win. When the dust settled, Can-Am’s Austin Weiland took the hardearned victory with a time of 8:49:43 and 29th overall, an excellent example of how far UTVs have come since they entered the scene. Dustin Jones in the T978 Can-Am was a mere three minutes behind in 8:52:49 followed by Branden Sims in the T913 Polaris. Four-time defending V2R UTV Turbo Production Class champ Phil Blurton had a tough day suffering a serious illness and mechanical issues while the UTV Pro Open Class was won by Can-Am’s Dan Fisher and the UTV RS1 NA class was won by Polaris racer Jonathan Mcvay in 11:04:48 followed by Jimmy Rodriguez and Jared Cozzocrea. The UTV Unlimited Class was ultra-competitive with 26 entries including 2021 Jimco Racing Silver State 300 champion Chris Blais who battled up front for most of the race with Randy Raschein, Jim Beaver, and Michael Isom. Shortly before Pit 11, the Blais team suffered mechanical issues and DNF leaving Can-Am’s Randy Raschein in the lead which he held to the finish, winning the class in a time of 9:50:54 followed by Jim Beaver in his Polaris in 9:52:40 and defending 2020 Best In The Desert UTV Unlimited Series champ Can-Am mounted Michael Isom in third in 10:10:30. The UTV Production N/A class drew a 40 entry field and was won by Carson Wernimont in his Kawasaki who kept his class win streak alive

putting in a great race and finishing in 9:49:54. Wernimont had to put in a great race because right on his tail was JD Marsh in his Polaris just two minutes behind. Polaris racer Dodge Poelman came home a very welldeserved third with Honda’s Elias Hanna in fourth. U927 Jack Olliges, son of Trick Truck legend Steve Olliges, showed he will be a force to be reckoned with by winning the UTV Rally class in 10:34:34. He was followed across the line by Jacob Zuccone in a time of 10:52:19 and UFC Fighter Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in 11:01:44. The UFC legend is taking on off-road racing with the same attitude and grit that made him the most decorated fighter in UFC history. Other class winners and finishers of note in Motorcycle Classes were the Over-30 Pro team led by Danny Cooper, wrapping up yet another V2R Class win. The Over-40 Pro Class was won by Chris Fry while Ironman Pro went to Dustin Ashe-Everest. Taylor Stevens is having an incredible year by winning the 2021 V2R 399 Pro Class. The highly competitive Women’s Motorcycle Class was won by the Ashlee Gage, Kari Erickson, and Rebecca and Rachel Stout KTM mounted team in 10:12:28. In Quad Pro Competition a field of five entries left the starting line with Jose Roberto Villalobos, Travis Damon, and Beau Baron taking home the win followed by Dylan Walraven and Daulton Keyes in second and Humberto Valenzuela in third. Not to be outdone by their four-wheel counterparts, the 2021 Maxxis Tires “Casey Folks” Vegas to Reno Presented by Fox boasted three fan-favorite three-wheeler entries with Wrangell Gubler winning the class in 14:34:25. Last but not least, and certainly most watched on the Facebook live stream, the final vehicle to cross the line was the #8197 Class 11 Subaru driven by John C. Frana, Ryan Brumund, and Dallas Van Wyk. Finishing in 17:40:37, the well-loved Subaru was definitely a crowd favorite. “Without question, the 2021 Maxxis Tires ‘Casey Folks’ Vegas to Reno Presented by Fox lived up to all the hype and delivered as one of the premier motorsports events in North America this past weekend,” commented Best In The Desert CMO Bryan Folks. “From our historic Method Race Wheels Live Broadcast of V2R Time Trials we set a tone for professionalism and excitement that only off-road racing can provide. Our Race Operations team has been working hard for this result and we are very pleased that so many racers chose to come join us in this great adventure. I am quite sure our father Casey Folks is pleased with the final result. I want to thank our staff, volunteers, sponsors, and racers for believing in our mission and helping make this the biggest V2R ever.” “The last week has literally been one of the most challenging yet rewarding weeks in all my life,” said Best In the Desert Race Operations Director Jeff Phillips. “We are grateful and honored that so many chose to join us and continue to believe in us. Seeing all the smiling faces at the finish line made all the long hours, blood, sweat, and tears more than worth it. And while we are quite pleased and gratified by all the positive comments, we are

already thinking about things we can do to make next year’s V2R even better. I want to thank my staff, our volunteers, our sponsors, and most especially, all the racers who showed up to take on one of the toughest challenges in off-road racing.” “This year’s V2R not only lived up to its reputation as the largest and longest single-day off-road race in the U.S., it would also appear it might have been the toughest,” stated Best In The Desert CEO Daryl Folks. “I’m pretty sure my dad wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. The Best In The Desert team, our staff, and volunteers put an enormous amount of effort into this race and it was great to see a record number of racers come out to support the event my father launched some 25 years ago. I want to thank everyone involved. We have been working extremely hard these past two years to keep off-road racing alive and viable during the pandemic and we are happy to see some light at the end of the tunnel. I am confident things will only get better from here. Thanks to everyone who participated in the race.”

eat waves and megafires happily were absent from the third round of the 2021 CALVMX-TOP GUN flat track series. Reasonable temperatures in the mid 80’s and a slight breeze made for a pleasant weekend of racing. The two day event was a potpourri of machines varying from the crowd favorite pull start mini-bikes, mini dwarf cars, traditional flat track bikes and, in a special appearance, the methanol fueled Class A Speedway bikes. The temperate weather meant the oval stayed race ready with minimal watering needed throughout both days.

Morning preliminary heat races set the starting grids and following a brief track watering and surface grading, the various classes began to assemble at the staging area for the main events under the supervision of Scott Hoefert. In the Senior Vet 50 Plus Expert finale, three of the fastest competitors dominated the race. A duel between Jeff Apple, John Dupree and Michael Diffenbaugh ensued from the start of the race. Apple led going into the first turn followed by Dupree and Diffenbaugh. In typical short track racing style, Dupree found the traction he needed to take over the lead at the end of lap two.

Apple stayed within a few bike lengths throughout the race in second, while Diffenbaugh pursued in third. Late in the race, Dupree took advantage of lapped traffic to build up a three second lead and held on for the win, with Apple and Diffenbaugh second and third. In just a few years, Summer Kukla has gone from a little girl sporting pink cowgirl boots astride an automatic transmission pit bike to a teenaged speedster. In the Adult Mini 150 Expert class, Kukla rocketed off the start line, leading Dustin Chapin, and Michael Diffenbaugh onto the back straight. Throughout the race, Diffenbaugh stayed within striking distance of Kukla but she was not to be denied the victory. Her hours of practicing with her grandfather, Steve Kukla, paid off as the young lady never put a wheel wrong on her way to the win followed by Diffenbaugh and Chapin. The Open Expert Class for bikes staged one of the fastest main events on the day. The majority of the bikes were 450cc single cylinder machines along with one Hooligan class Harley Davidson twin. The start saw Daltin Collie dive into turn one with the lead, with John Dupree and Helder Alvernaz, muscling his massive Harley v-twin, giving chase. Collie, whose family flat track pedigree dates back to the 1960’s, utilized mostly a low to mid-line strategy around the course as he fended off numerous challenges. Dupree kept up intense pressure on Collie, while behind them, veteran Jeff Apple passed his way into third place. Collie stayed focused and flashed

across the finish line with the victory, with Dupree and Apple rounding out the top three placings. Other winners on Saturday included Tanner Donahue in the 125cc A kart class, Brian Pusey in Open Class A kart, and Jasper Heathfield in the 16 & Under Novice bike class. Joining them on the winners list were Scott Cowan in the 6 HP Novice Pull Start class, Mark Arguilez in Junior Quads and Chyrisma Isom who scored two first place finishes in Women’s Quad B and Quad Open B. The Sunday portion of the race weekend featured virtually the same weather conditions as Saturday. The pit area rapidly filled with karts, pull starts, mini dwarfs and quads. An added

feature was the addition of four Class A Speedway bikes taking to the course, displaying the unique style required for the brakeless, methanol fueled machines. Preliminary heats set the starting grids, with the main events taking to the oval by mid-afternoon. The increasingly popular pull-start bike class featured close quarter battles in both the expert and intermediate divisions. In the Expert class, Veteran campaigners Dan Brown, Lane Miller and Jeff Apple sped to the front at the start of their main event. Brown used his mastery of handling the challenging little machines to hold onto the lead amongst a flurry of passes and bar-to-bar duels. Brown went on to

Steve Gimby, first Trikes B. Judd Neves Photo take the win, followed by Miller who barely edged out Apple for the runner up position. In the Intermediate Pull-Start final, Austin Degan took an early lead followed by his brother Josh. Austin began to stretch his lead by some three seconds over the pack. Late in the race, Cody Brown began to rapidly close in on Austin. The white flag lap saw Josh Degan sliding out in turn one, as Brown drew ever closer to Austin. At the checkers, Brown executed a perfect pass to take the win, followed by Austin Degan and Nate Baumgardner. The speedway bikes took to the track in a series of three “motos” rather than one main event. Expert ranked Mark

Fillebrown and Joe Donaldson sparred in all three races with Fillebrown taking the hat-trick with three wins. In the Intermediate portion, Tom Bryant and CALVMX regular Julian Hoefert powered their way around the oval using the traditional speedway broadslide style. Bryant topped the class, with Hoefert, riding a traditional “upright engine” Jawa taking a credible second overall. Quad racer Kera Berry has battled both machine and health issues for several seasons. Much like the legendary Jay Springsteen, when her machine and health are in sync, she is a formidable foe. In Sundays Women’s Open Quad A class, Berry faced off against the daunting Kelly Lane in the main event. The

A stack of Donahues: Will, Tanner and Pat. Judd Neves Photo match saw both competitors hurling their machines around the oval with sprint car style slides in the corners. Racing karma finally shined on Berry as she sped to a popular victory. The Mini Dwarf classes are always filled with action as the young racers bounce, slide and bang their way around the oval. In Dwarf A, Donald Diffenbaugh avoided the carnage behind him to take the win, with Danielle Friel in second. Joining them in the awards presentation were Michelle Munoz in Adult 4 Stroke Kart B, Cameron Leon in 12 & Under 100cc bikes and Kyndal Johnson in 78

Kids Karts B. Robert Berry added to the Berry family win total for the weekend by taking the top spot in the high-speed Open Quad A class with Julian Hoefert second and Harry Simpson third. Several more rounds remain for this season at the Camp Lockett oval. Class titles are still very much up for the taking in the seven-round series. CALVMX, the promoting club, offers classes for two, three and four wheeled machines and racers of all skill levels.
