Where's Tony T's Top Picks - always entertaining
Im 0-2 on the RG 500 picks, I picked him last year as well to win. I figured he probably had the King shocks dialed in by now and might be able to pull this one off. But thats the problem with just picking one racer instead of 6+.With so many extremely competitive drivers now it is almost impossible to predict who the winner will be. It seems like there are nearly 10 teams that are capable of winning. It all comes down to who has the best equipment and has the fewest mistakes. One flat tire more than the competition and you are out of the lead, one blown corner, one extra long pit stop and you are done. Long gone are the days of being down for 30 minutes and still get the win.
I would always put Rob Mac, Gordon, Andy M, BJ Baldwin, Menzies and Vildosola up at the front of a winners prediction list. However, there are several others that have the program in place to make a winning team. Herbst, McMillin's, and Pab are a few of those that one of these days are going to get a win at a big Baja race. I know some of these have won in the past, but not in the recent past that I can recall.
