I agree with this... maybe if you had a perfect day and never got out of the tuck but still based on what I've seen a two driver race is better than one in TT and 1.From what has come back after people have prerun, I have a hard time seeing how somebody who solo's this race will have a shot at a overall, let alone a class win, unless they are the only entry in that class.
There are realisticly 12-15 teams tops that put in the pre run effort, have solid logistics and have good equiptment..... I'm sure easy to name the teams but then add in no mistakes and some good old fashion luck and you could pick a donzen maybes... that same 12-15 have their issues at times as well.
The tougher and more remote the more I think it plays to us. We pend so much time in Baja that we have a little bit of a "know where we are feeling" which I think helps cut down stress.First off, good luck to you - this is the win you need and I would love to see you get!
I'm curious to hear your thoughts on racing this type of course - long, tough and technical. Average speeds will be low and attrition will be high. Modern racers (TT's) are long-legged thoroughbreds built to run fast, not Hunter Jumpers, agile and nimble.
Simple question, is this the kind of Baja 1000 course you like to see?
They do have a new truck and I'm pretty sure they are racing it. It is a monster and those 42's are huge and heavy! It will be interesting to see if they are an advantage or a truck breaker.Did Vanderway's build a new truck? Saw something about that on Curt's Instagram feed.
Stoked to hear that Momma's truck is down there stretching her legs. Love that truck. Best of luck PAB and the DA. Would love to see you guys win.The tougher and more remote the more I think it plays to us.

This one is going to be won by someone who is quick but not going crazy fast all the time. Mile 385 to 660 will be an interesting statement of our sport, I'm looking forward to it.
Had to do a transmission in the 4 seater so I had 1.5 days unscheduled at home and on our way back today. Actually Heidi is pre running in the 6 truck some which is kind of cool as she's(the truck) been sitting a while.
Everyone be safe
AGM TT is built smaller, lighter than the "normal" truck. I like our chances as it does very good in the tight technical parts of the course...last year we went from 38th starting position to 7th on the road by San Felipe...Bryce/Jesse & Rob/Andy are going to be tough!Modern racers (TT's) are long-legged thoroughbreds built to run fast, not Hunter Jumpers, agile and nimble.
