Last time Roeseler solo the Baja 1000 I guess it was 1999 Ojos Negros loop; He finished second that year and it wasn´t easy for him. Now he´s older and this year the race is longer. I think he needs a second driver.On his FB page...he's Iron-manning it.
My definition of ironman: drive the entire race with no other person getting in the seat.
Is it still a "win" if the first toyota-powered vehicle on the road, (driven by Baja Bob & Ryan Arciero) was made to wait (in the TOYOTA pit) until he could catch up, get pit service, and pulled ahead so he could win the 4wheel division?When he solo’s all the miles like this with no gloves, absolutely!
Sounds like an internal squabble to me.Is it still a "win" if the first toyota-powered vehicle on the road, (driven by Baja Bob & Ryan Arciero) was made to wait (in the TOYOTA pit) until he could catch up, get pit service, and pulled ahead so he could win the 4wheel division?
Dale Ebberts is driving with Polvoorde. Definitely a contender.Whats the pick for TTspec?
Jason McNeil is hard to beat after the season he has had down there. Super fast and dialed truck. thats my pick but kind of the obvious favorite. What other teams will challenge them?
Hancock with Hager is strong and they are hungry for a SCORE win.
Lawrence is also a good pick. I assume Ray recovered from Covid fast and will be down there racing with Lawrence. I saw a pic of his 6100 truck pre running.
Pierce with the Herbst team is always a factor and with the Deans they have the speed.
Dan fresh in Jeff Baders truck has a lot of success down south the last year and with Erica that makes a great team. She knows Baja and has a SCORE championship under her belt. Mike Kim or as I call him Palindrome, is also on that team and super strong in Baja .
Justin Davis and Dustin Grawbowksi could be up there. Both of those guys are fast at 85% speed. New Brenthal and on the best tires.
Polvoorde has a fast truck and can be in the top 3 but I don't know who is also driving with him.
But the big equalizer is Baja. many of these teams have not done a Peninsula run and that takes a lot more than a fast truck and fast driver. I would lean towards teams that have a lot of experience like the Herbst team.
