Bundy raced and won Class 3 at the Baja 1000 with this Jeep. A Weber carbed I6 powered it. The short course Jeep in the top picture has been for sale for quite awhile, too bad, it's a kool old race car.
Bundy started to race the Jeep in the top picture again, after I started the Formula 4x4 class at Crandon. I'm guessing that it was 2001 or 2002 that Jerry started to participate. He did quite well and won many times.
We did get north of 20 cars in the class at one point. Almost all of them were Jeeps, Broncos, and Blazers. When I approached Crandon originally, I had just come back from running the 1998 Baja 1000 in Class 3. I say running, we made it a couple of hundred miles before we broke in the mountains just past San Quintin. Class 3 didn't exist anymore in the Midwest, it died four years before. My Blazer had won the class 3 championship in the Midwest for a couple of years in the early 90's. I bought it off the ground in a southern Illinois junkyard of Wildman, Gerald Foster. So when I came back to Chicago from Baja, there was no class to race. I called Cliff Flannery and told him that there were four pickup truck based classes, so that there should be room for a SUV based class. There used to be fields of 20-25 Class 3's starting at Crandon. So I studied why the class had failed. I also saw that SUV's were continuing to be raced in other venues, like Tuff trucks. So I found them, called them, to see what rules they lived by, and what rules they would need to join us on a longer track like Crandon. Half the field had never been to Crandon before they started Formula 4x4.
