Mile 30 to 40 will be the biggest test. The rain ruts are going to take out the baja virgins. Preran to Mike's great course. Just need to see the 1st 30 miles

Get a passport. You’re an adult now.

If you’re in any sort of need for medical evacuation... no passport, no flying into the U.S.

Do a search on here. This has been discussed at exhaustion.

It was a joke. I guess I forgot the

First and last 30 are the tricky part. Rest has been ridden, talked about, drive lines defined on numerous GPS files and overall a great run for the win. Winners will have prepped and pre ran their sections several times to pick up current terrain conditions.

Any pre run reports?
Yes Travis. I just rolled home from doing from mile 30 to 255 miles to the Miles Skyranch road, got home at around 10:30 am, went to work then to my Engine guys shop to check on my 12 car engine an man im beat!
I get it SCORE wants really tough courses. I love racing in Mexico. With logistics i do also realize that sometimes you don’t have a bunch of course options. But the technical stuff.......well there is quite a bit of it. Actually had tacos at a packed famous place with “ Queso Tacos” and even a few bigger names were sayin “there best chance is to race a rock crawler not a desert race car”....
Im tired, give me a night or 2 and i will give you some specifics and locations when my technician buddy helps me pin point the areas. Oh....the summit has gotten quite a bit uglier with this last rainy season too. We witnessed a decent amount of carn already just prerunning and getting stuck. Breaking cars.

So he said this-

And then you said this-

For years because of your screen name I thought you were part of "Homemeade Motorsports" (Brandon Walsh) but now that you said you Pre Run I realize that I was wrong. Those guys never pre run. Their entire budget is spent on their vehicle wraps instead.

Actually had tacos at a packed famous place with “ Queso Tacos” and even a few bigger names were sayin “there best chance is to race a rock crawler not a desert race car”....

Why do I think this comment is the precursor to interesting post race discussions concerning UTVs?
