i guess all the civilians on the course were Not aware of a desert race in progress as they were out bird watchingI posted this on IG but I thought I’d also share on here so we can discuss. There was zero officials of any kind at RM 260 which was a major access road that the course jumped on and off of!
First- Congrats on the win. And better speed! But! For most of the spectators (and Fish apparently) the race ended when the 1s and TT Specs finished, so course was open. (it's a joke for the obtuse)By the time I came by there in my 5 unlimited we still had 2 trucks and a Jeep just cruzing out directly on course without a care in the world that we had to go around. We passed close and fast hoping to spray a few rocks in their direction
Thanks Bro, well we all know those are the only classes that matter. even though a 5U had a faster time than almost all motorcycles and only 4 Utv’s finished ahead of us.First- Congrats on the win.

you forgot the uppity pre running trophy trucksThis is typical Baja. There are always drunk locals on the course, booby traps, locals trying to race you in their junkers, cars blocking the course, people standing/camping in horribly dangerous spots, etc. Race accordingly. Or stay in the US where every race is regulated to death and fun is nearly outlawed.
yup, but little did they know they were destroying what was left with noxious c02 gas from the engine,( i do like the change flats on the fly& up to 2 flats you still keep moving till the next pitAh, the many lives of
Remember the Saturday morning fictional tv show about the dad and 2 kids driving that thing around saving a destroyed planet Earth from pollution?
They have VCP's nowadays, not course workers.... I bet we had more course workers at the ridgecrest snore race for our 70 mile loop as they had for their 300 mile loop.It was a total chit show there. Everyone had to cross the course there to get from 157 back to the highway (2 poles) spectators parked there making it really tight. We waited for plenty of room before we crossed to make sure we would not block the race course. After we crossed we got stuck and 4 cars came after us blocking the race course. We had a Spanish speaking guy with us that yelled at the one guys to move and another spectator got all fired up and wanted to fight. I thought for sure we were getting ready to go to jail or the hospital. LOL.
not sure how Score did not see this coming. It was a major course intersection with a access road.
