Primm, Nevada: Shelby Hall, of Reno, Nevada, achieved a podium finish in the 2017 Mint 400, her first off-road first race as the Driver of Record; she paired with 4WD rally driver Amy Lerner, of Bergen, NJ. The third-generation racer is the granddaughter of legendary off-roader, Rod Hall; her father, Josh Hall, and uncle, Chad Hall, are also accomplished desert racers. It was her first competition without any members of her famed family on her team, although her husband Alex Baker, the team’s chief mechanic, was the co-driver/navigator for both Hall and Lerner. Rod Hall cheered her off the starting line in the restored ’68 Bronco that carried him to a victory in the 1969 Mexican 1000 and is the only 4WD vehicle to have won the world-renowned Baja 1000 overall. Owned by Hall, the history-making Bronco is on loan from the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame’s heritage display.
Washington, DC – Today, the Senate passed H.J. Res 44, a measure also passed by the House a few weeks ago, to roll back the public process and progressive management on the 245 million acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land. Congress used the Congressional Review Act (CRA), an arcane rule that allows Congress to roll back agency regulations within 60 days, to repeal BLM Planning 2.0. Planning 2.0 was a widely-lauded effort to modernize the 30 year-old rules currently governing land planning on BLM land and give it a better public process.
