Baja Racing News BLOCKBUSTER! Jerry Whelchel Won The SUPERSHOW 2008 in August at San Jose del Cabo



The BLOCKBUSTER story of the American winner of the Southern Baja SUPERSHOW that was held in Cabo Mexico last August! The REAL WINNER was never revealed until NOW! Baja Racing News.com


Baja Racing News.com wishes to correct an earlier reported story. In August of this year, an event we promoted in association with PRO BAJA of southern Baja Mexico, the SUPERSHOW held at San Jose del Cabo.

We often use local reporters for information on local races. Salvador Ongay Martinez (known locally as Shaloy) reported on the race for Baja Racing News.

When Baja Racing News.com recently interviewed the actual winner of the event, we wanted to correct the story. Congratulations to Jerry Whelchel, the actual Winner of the SUPERSHOW 2008!

The real story is that Whelchel was invited down to only do a demostration drive, not compete at the SUPERSHOW. When the great Jimmie Jeffries and Jerry got together in Los Cabos, they partnered to combine the Jeffries Team and Whelchels driving expertise, to win the event. Congratulations also to the Jeffries Team!

Track racing of the Baja Sur teams, the last race of the season. Qualifying begins at 10 AM at the track with competitions begin at 6 PM local time. Advertised by the organizer: ProComp's Travis Coyne and Monster Energy Drink's Jerry Whelchel from the USA will compete. As advertised in Los Cabos by the organizer, these track meets will pit "Mexico vs. USA" drivers in off-road. Stay tuned for results this holiday weekend.

SPECIAL NOTE:
Rick James Welch, an American raced at San Jose over the weekend. Not, Jerry Welchel. This is a common practice in Baja Sur. Organizers say that a big name will race, they don't show, usually the organizers say equipment problems. This brings in the big crowds and pesos, fans gripe its not what they paid for and the circle of life in Baja Sur off-road racing continues

KING OF BAJA.com congratulates all the desert racers of Baja Sur in this weekends racing!
