    My last 5 days have been very involved. I'm going to provide an abbreviated version of what happened. Some may know this stuff already. If so, please disregard. I have had some experience with accidents in Mexico and I've heard some worst-case-scenario stories, but now, having managed the...

    Baja 1000 Safety Proceedures

    Every year, as the Baja 1000 gets closer, people start talking about safety. Unlike other forms of racing, Baja racing is statistically much more dangerous for the support crews than for drivers and navigators. In this unique form of racing the entire team shares the risk, so the entire team...

    Mexico Warning: Military Checkpoint After Action

    I thought I was wise to most of the shenanigans that take place in Baja, but this was a new one for me: I had been down in Gonzaga Bay with my wife and some friends. There's a military checkpoint just to the north of Rancho Grande that you have to pass through in order to get to the place...

    Jamar Brakes @ Mint 400 = Awesome

    I wanted to give a quick thank you to Don Gehnert from Jamar. Our Mint 400 was not great due to a failed pinion gear. Nevertheless, our big, fat Baja Dodge ran well and performed better than ever thanks to Don's hard work. Our Class 8 Dodge is a heavy duty Baja truck that makes close to 900...

    Lost Wingman

    Yesterday my co-driver was killed. Jeremy Graczyk was a lifelong friend and sat right seat for me in the last two Baja 1000s. He was part of General Tire and our KORE brotherhood. He was one of the Marines covered in blood, lying in broken glass, helping James Lamb survive the accident...

    Trophy Lite - Driving Impressions

    Today I had the opportunity to drive a Trophy Lite for the first time. Some media people and friends met with Matt Scaroni at Plaster City to test out the new ride. The demonstration truck was their OG prototype. It was nicely built and everything looked well-thought-out. The design of...
