With generally good success in San Felipe, lets see if we can get strength in numbers and caravan down to Enseneda.

Our team will be leaving in two waves on Sunday the 25th and Friday the 30th.

Post up your departing plans and lets get some activity on this subject.

Good luck to all racers and spectators!

Perhaps I am reading something between the lines that is not there, but what do you mean by "generally good success"? This wording implies that there were specific incidents that were not successes .. what happened? I am unaware of anything that happened in SF race weekend other than the Class 1 drug guy nabbed and miscellaneous traffic stops. I had the idea that the SF250 was an absolute resounding success!

Bottom line is that let's make the B500 a happy success for everyone involved!!:)
I would suggest that we all need to be extra extra careful of leaving valuables in cars/trucks/trailers. The vandalism risk will always remain high.

Just a tip...We had a F250 swiped in the middle of the day in Ensenada a couple of years ago. Since that happened we try to practice taking the fuel pump relay out of the fuse holder any time we leave a vehicle unattended in Mexico. Better than any alarm.

Paradigm and I were talking about making a thread about this also, we are most likely leaving Friday morning sometime from the OC.

You dudes from OC are screwed -- you will never make it to San Diego without getting stopped. The CHP in Oceanside and Carlsbad are on high alert (CODE RED) for desert homies with prerunners, uncovered driving lights, no mudflaps, tinted front windows, Ford Rangers with white fenders, flatbill hats, excessive tatoos, Metal Mulisha hoodies, gansta rap music playing, subwoofers that take up the whole trunk, etc, etc. jajaja

Seriously, see you down there - Steeekers? :D

DA is leaving in a bunch of waves. Probably some on Thursday the 22 with more to follow early on the 24th. Plans are not that firm as of yet. Will chime in when we know for sure.

Just got back from Baja on Wed. night. the place was deserted. Light traffic and no problemos.

Pretty sure about the big party at Mike's the week before the race though.......

Anybody going down Tuesday the 27th were going down then and live in San Diego. The idea of other people to drive with sounds a lot better these days.

What time are you leaving Fri morning? Is Randy going down on the Friday morning trip? I've got a truck full of "Boyz Trip" guys who might want to caravan with you if you're leaving early.

By saying "generally" i figure i wouldn't offend anyone that had problems while traveling, As well as keeping the thread on track and not getting too may SF250 stories.

What time are you leaving Fri morning? Is Randy going down on the Friday morning trip? I've got a truck full of "Boyz Trip" guys who might want to caravan with you if you're leaving early.

Randy will be leaving on the Sunday group if i'm not mistaken. we are going to try to take off around 6-7 Sun morning. Our Friday group im not sure when they will be leaving i will be sure to post it up when i find out more details...

We will be on weatherman channel while traveling, great posts everyone lets keep them coming.
