A long awaited race finally happened, Mike’s Peak Challenge.

The Mike’s Sky Ranch is a place that required no presentation among off-roaders in Baja, since a lot of years ago, the idea of “who get to the Mike’s first” has been just an idea, until now. Bryce might thought about it first, but Robby Gordon with help of their SST infrastructure put together the first edition officially of the Mike’s Peak Challenge, edition in honor to Robby’s dad, Baja Bob, this are the highlights:

Ultra4 with Shortcourse tires, enough said.

Robbie Pierce gave some good show to the fans who came to see the event.

The Mike’s dirt road is beautiful at every angle.

This event showed the capabilities of the SST trucks, stadium or not this machines are 100% capable to be fast.

Why we didn’t have this kind of racing before?

JT Taylor wasn’t joking when he put those tires, he was making times below the 19 minute mark in positions just below Apdaly Lopez.
