    Baldwins\' Prerunner Pics

    Many of you remember the video from last week of the Baldwins' (Jason/Josh, etc.) new prerunner 2004 F150 fresh from Geisers' shop.

    Well, here's a few shots of how it looked Thursday night after its maiden race trip/roll down a cliff. According to one of the riders who was still at the BFG pit south of Puertocitos Thursday night:

    Driver was a friend of the Baldwins from Wisconsin (CORR connection) who had never been to Baja before. Went by our pit (chasepit.com) just north of BFG/Puertocitos VERY fast about 3:00-4:00. Apparently lost it in a corner going ~90 mph (according to co-dog) and rolled at least 4 times down into a canyon. One of the 3 riders was airlifted out with some broken bones. Others OK.

    Makes you sick, but glad no one was seriously injured. I just helped with some final assembly work on this truck a few weeks ago.

    Truck was still driveable, but one of the upper links on the rear was taco'd, several shocks blown, etc.

    Yes, that curved upper link is supposed to be straight.

    Re: Baldwins\' Prerunner Pics

    Rancho race is correct......................Weatherman said honda pits reported "baldwins" prerunner to be the one doing 100mph backwards on the course at Gonzaga..............................it was a very similar looking pre-runner, but had no ID, nor did the helicopter.

    Later, the pre-runner went back by Gonzaga towing Pflueger's TT, which we immediately reported to Weatherman, and he indeed threw it in the faces of those who blamed Baldwins.

    If it wasnt so serious it would have been funny

    I was thinking another case of "Chase guy" + Badazz Prerunner = It's not a matter of WHEN, it's a matter of WHERE. Too bad, that looked like one bitchin' truck. Thank God no one died. Hopefully the "Skunk" pictures were taken Last week. [​IMG]

    I think the best saying would be, "Drive like it is not yours."
