Doubt it will go near san felipe after the heat last year. Would be nice to do the coast like the 1,000 was last year.

I wouldn't be so sure. I've heard about four different versions of a proposed route and all of them go towards San Felipe, and even as far south as Matomi.

If we go to San Felipe for the 500 that probably means we are going that way for the 1000 too. It doesnt bother me going through Felipe for the 1000 but the hour and half speed zone after it is going to SUCK!

Top contenders for the championship depending on how they finish at the 500 are??? Numbers 11, 16, 15, 97, 23, 1, 4, 19 and 76.

Wouldn't it be nice if the Mexican government allowed or provided a dirt course, parallel to the highway in that section?

the 1k goes to La Paz so maybe passing by SF for a change wouldn't be so bad but they need to find a way to eliminate hwys as much as possible.

The race will feature a course, when finalized over the next couple of weeks by SCORE CEO/President Roger Norman along with Race Director Jose A. Grijalva of approximately 492 miles. Also I hear the race course can go to San Felipe for a loop, but this is just a rumor.

We decided that this 500 will be the last of our Mexico races for a couple years, so no 1000 for us. The entry fee for that race is going to be close to $3k, if not more, for a sportsman entry lol
