5-1600\'s

I know alot of you may not follow the limited class' all that much but Class 5-1600 had an amazing time at the Baja 1000. With one of the larger classes in the field with 16 starters they had an amazing 15 finishers! The winner came in just under 23 hours, beating ALL the 1-2 1600's and SCORE Lites, heck he would of taken 3rd in pro-truck or 4th in class 10. No I'm not trying to compare the classes, not even close, obviously the winner of 5-1600 had a great day with little or no problems (2nd place was only 36 min back), just pointing out how the amazingly durable baja bugs can take a thrashing and still move on down the road at a good pace.

Re: 5-1600\'s

The Gasper bros. have been some of the faster guys in that class. The only reason we beat them in the 2k was because they broke down for about 2 hrs by a bfg pit. They didn't pay for their support so bfg didnt help them, and thats when we passed them. They then made up lots of time on us but not enough to retake the lead. They really deserved this win. Congrats.
