Any chance of a drop point in San Diego Open on tomorrow This Saturday? , I have a squatted full long bed truck filled and heading from Phoenix early in the morning and would rather unload it than have it sitting in the back until Monday ?
If you can meet me in Alpine today I'll transport your items to Mastercraft on Monday...Jim

We had a great turn out at Kartek with 6 pallets of food collected. Thanks to my friends who donated and help load and to the people that I do not know who came out with there kids and donated as well. Cameron wants to collect for 6 weeks. This is a picture of Reed,Amber and Kyle son who helped. The Checkers club raised $2000 to buy items for this effort, we all thank you,Currie enterprise donated 2 pallets as well! So lets keep it going.

At the Lucas race at lake Ellsanore the Pappas and Beer team will be collecting at there pit,supplies for Baja Strong as well so I'm asking everyone to buy 1 extra can of food a week and bring it to the track any nite they attend and show support!!
Teams and spectators alike,just think 5 cans x 2000 fans of Baja = a chance to pay back for all those SUNSETS in the middle of nowhere. See you at the races

Just imagine if we spent this same amount of time and effort here in the states when we have natural disasters.
