What the heck happened at the Baja 500 in 2022. I thought the AWD were going to sweep and they didn't. Well I guess teams can still win in a 2WD. Awesome Job Rob Mac and A Ampudia.I think it showed at San Felipe when our awds qualified 1,2,3,4,5 and swept the podium on race day. Some may say "well thats because you have the best teams" and yes that is true, team and driver are the number one factor
Reliability issues struck all those AWD’s but nothing to actually do with them being AWD unless the steering box issues can be linked to something to do with them being AWD. The other two blown up engines. I’m the biggest Rob Mac fan but, truth be told, until Luke broke his box Rob didn’t have anything for him being 10min down after less than 200 miles, and no other 2wd even had anything for Rob.What the heck happened at the Baja 500 in 2022.

I agree completely. Rob’s motto: “slow enough to win.” However, I think he would’ve rather been only 4-5min down, not 10min down before RM200. You can’t go TT racing hoping for everyone else to break, those days were 20 years ago.Rob knows to run fast and consistent and the toyos will pop and the AWD’s will have issues of one form or another, and he’ll pick them off. It’s not that he has nothing for them, he’s playing the game. They are pushing so many limits and trying so many things in some of those new trucks. Robs truck is old reliable and proven and goes point a to point b fast. Plus he has one of the best engine and transmission builders in the game.
