big whoops with the roll...blown corner? Do you now what mile that was?
We had a fun weekend(my bachelor party), Left from Rancho Santa Veronica about 10ish on sat morn. to Ojos via El compadre...From Ojos got on course to Km 77, just kinda enjoying the beautiful baja weather. I woke Sat morning to find that the guys had attached a blow up doll to the back of my ride...Drove around with her hanging off the back all Sat. Good times...There is a spot around mm62ish with a really large hill, If I were to be filming..Thats were I would be.You are right Ramsey we saw very few people, lots of tracks but few people..

its the old three seat Collins truck with a dodge Body

Nice catch, I was just going to mention that, the steering setup is so low on that truck its hard to miss . . . Good to see the "limo" out getting some use

We found this guy (forget his name just remember hes from florida) between La Salada and borrego he was a hurting unit, he was spent and in bad shape so was his bike. We got him hydrated and fixed his bike (damn hondas) the subframe bolts were missing (we used a sprocket bolt and some hardware from the v6 honda engine in my prerunner to get him going) his buddy came back for him and he road out to borrego.



best of luck at the race guys

Anyone have an idea on the access road quality from the 5 to south side of laguna salada, rm160? I've heard its a graded road, just wanted to know if anyone has been down it lately?

Thanks

the exit off the 5 is actually called saldana 2, turn off the highway and it will take you there....takes a while but its a dry lake bed. VERY HOT when the sun gets going, we have seen 120 in that area

Somebody needs to tell the Mastercraft boys that there are no trophies given out to the winners of pre-running. That is why it is called "pre-running" instead of "pre-racing"

Hope no one was hurt.

Nice pics, wish I was going down.

Yes, it's the old 3 seater turned pre runner with a BB that runs on Ping mex. Real fun truck to ride in too.

Thanks for the clarification. Now for my question: If he starts off on the bike, and then pulls double duty in the 6 truck (7200). can he still claim overall? Or is it the entire team effort that gets to claim victory.

Crash was because of a broken suspension part. They weren't "pre- racing"! No one was hurt either.

Team gets the win, Driver/Rider of Record gets the recognition, points and name in the record book.
