If you have not heard about the #1802 story from this years Baja 1000 I am sure it won’t be long until you do. Basically 1802 went from only a few people knowing of them racing this year to a couple thousand knowing of them racing, all because they took a wrong turn. They missed the turnoff in the Borrego area to head down south and do the San Felipe loop. After RDC followers caught their mistake a phone call was made to Weatherman to see if he could get a hold of them and let them know of their mistake and how to correct it. He did get a hold of them and they were able to get back and do the San Felipe loop. Even after the finish had closed on the time limit the team said screw time limits we are finish this race. The rest is history…..
