EXCLUSIVE BREAKING BAJA RACING NEWS!
McMILLIN HOMES PULLS OUT OF MEXICO!
For the last several years, McMillin Homes of San Diego California was the title sponsor of the Mexicali 500, a loop race from Mexicali to San Felipe back to Mexicali, promoted by the Mexicali Tourism Authority. Today, Baja Racing News.com has learned McMillin will no longer sponsor the event and as reported earlier, may not race the Baja 500 or 1000 this year.

After the 2007 Baja 1000, the talented Andy McMillin, called on SCORE to respond to the Baja Crime Wave taking place in Baja Mexico. Andy and Robby Gordon, won the 2006 Baja 1000 to La Paz.

Since the inception of the 'Mexicali 500', McMillin was the title sponsor. From our source, he said, "there may be no races that the McMillin racing interests, enter Mexico, this racing year".


**"The buzz throughout the race teams is no doubt how difficult it is going to be to survive this race course as many race veterans are reporting that the race course is more difficult than they have ever seen in the past. Collins’ Motorsports Driver/Team Owner, Brian Collins, said it was the toughest he’s ever seen and he’s embracing the difficulty of the terrain hoping confident that his MOPAR Dodge Ram will make it to the checkers in the top spot.
Riviera Racing’s Rob MacCachren commented, “We’ve been here for a week and each day the race course is more chewed up. This is no doubt the biggest we’ve seen the bumps as long as I can remember and the team that has no problems will end up on top. The Riviera Racing truck always runs very good at San Felipe and we’ve done our homework. I’m looking for a great finish if all of our cards fall in the right spot.”
Ballastic B.J. Baldwin has been staying in San Felipe all week long and he and his father, Bobby Baldwin, have held a rigorous prerun schedule, although in testing his truck here in San Felipe not long after the truck arrived he suffered a transmission failure in testing and the truck went back stateside for repair. The truck has return to San Felipe and he’s expected to contend amongst the top teams.
Jesse James tested his race truck in the first 30 miles with the new proto-type KING Shock package and he melted the main seals of both rear shocks causing the shocks to lose all fluid and rendering his #54 truck to the trailer until they could repair the KING shocks. James had previously been using FOX Racing Shox and changed to KING’S before the 2007 SCORE Baja 1000, however they have not held up to the rigors of San Felipe here this week.
The 1600 Champion, Dave Caspino, pushed his all black 1600 car through contingency and he hopes to repeat as the class champion with a good race here in San Felipe.
San Felipe weather could not be any better as the temperatures hovered right around the mid-70’s most of the day and the weather is expected to be the same through the weekend with thousands of fans pouring into San Felipe for Saturday’s main event."


**There are three ambulances on call for the Baja 250, one at St. James, one south of town and one at 'three poles'.

**Medical Meeting 6 PM, at St. James--Baja Racing News.com will be there.

**The next 72 hours are the most dangerous. Racing, chasing and the out-of-control race fans going nuts. Some, will stay out in the desert, on the course, all-night-long. Campfires, trucks on the course, it's Baja racing. Stay Tuned HERE, you'll get the WHOLE STORY.

**the Score insurance company rep and the race radio relay rep for the race are having some drinks at Georges Restaurant in a matter of moments, we'll have a reporter there to get the story.

The insurance rep for SCORE reported that at St. James Medical Clinic, there is now enough room for landing choppers, there will be an on-call ambulance on-site and we will report on where the other ambulances will be stationed.

WHY YOU ASK?
San Felipe is notorious for CODE RED situations with every kind of accident, cars, race trucks and lots of injuries. We will have the minute by-minute reporting on Baja Racing News LIVE!

So far, teams are now scrambling to get the 'to do' list done before nightfall, racers have all the prerunning done and are making their way back into town. Most of the time, the goal is to get your mechanicals done by nightfall and your pilots, racers, in to the hotel or camp, in enough time to SSS-shit shower shave and in for some shuteye, to be fully prepped for the 3 or 4 AM wakeup call.

Nightfall has been after 6 PM.

**Moto info Update:

Starting on RaceDay, Saturday March 15, Bikes start staging at 5:30 AM at the Arches. A race rep will check your wristband at he start (and finish, too). A Score official will normally dab your motor with a unique-colored nail polish. If your rear red taillight is not working, you will not be able to race.

"Bike helmets must meet Snell standards, Snell memorial foundation, M2000 or M2005, with a legible Snell sticker attached, FIA Standard 8860-2004, with a legible FIA sticker attached, or BSI 6658 Type A." Tech will peel apart your lining to find the stamps.And you need D-ring helmets, not snaps (if anyone is still racing with snaps).Ratings are explained here: http://www.smf.org/articles/mcomp2.html

**PRESS RELEASE:

"Monster Energy-Backed Johnny Campbell Is The Favorite Heading Into This Weekend’s SCORE Tecate 250The “King of Baja.com “will be rockin’ the Monster M-claw logo this weekend in San Fillipe, Mexico, for Round Two of the ’08 SCORE International Series
Corona, Ca - 3-13-08 – Monster Energy-backed Johnny Campbell, known widely as the most successful Baja motorcycle racer of all time, will boot up this weekend to contest the SCORE Tecate 250 in San Filipe, Mexico, Round Two of the 2008 SCORE International off road racing series.
Campbell, the current Baja champion and Team JCR/Honda owner, is gunning for his 9th SCORE Tecate 250 win (in 15 tries) on what’s considered to be the most dangerous of all the SCORE series races due to its hidden sand-covered boulders and ultra long whoop stretches.
“I will do whatever it takes to put my team on top,” said Campbell. “It’s all on the line when the dust settles and the checkers have dropped – it needs to be Robby Bell and I standing there. I have the best bike, best pit program, best racers and, of course, the best sponsor in off road-racing Monster Energy Drink.
“But Baja is Baja so I’m not going to claim anything. As I’ve stated before: ‘You just expect to win.’”
“I’m stoked to have Johnny and his whole team down in Baja representing Monster Energy. Johnny is an Icon down in Baja and we are honored to have him on the team.” Said Joe Parsons Sr MotorSports Marketing Manager for Monster Energy Drink.

O’Neal, Simi Valley, Calif., is an age-group motorcycle rider who has put together eight winning teams in the last seven years in San Felipe. O’Neal is the all-time co-leader for class wins in this race, tied with Dan Smith. Going for double class wins again (he won two in 2005), O’Neal will lead teams in both Class 30 and Class 50 this year on Hondas. Solorzano, Tijuana, Mexico, has seven wins in Class 11 for stock VW Sedans while Moss, Sacramento, Calif., has five wins in the last six years in Class 3 in his sturdy Ford Bronco.

Drawing the first starting slot for the unlimited Class 1 open-wheel desert race cars is defending season point champion Billy Gasper, Chino Hills, Calif. Riding the first ATV off the line will be defending SCORE Overall ATV and Class 25 point Champion Danny Prather, Ramona, Calif. Sohren, 43, of Glendale, Ariz., is a veteran SCORE desert racer who has won Class 5 (unlimited VW Baja Bugs) twice in this race (1997 and 2001). He now drives the No. 2 Ford F-150 SCORE Trophy-Truck, finishing eighth in season points last year after a solid fourth-place finish in the 40th Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. With 20 entries so far, Sohren will lead a strong field in SCORE Trophy-Truck that features many of the world’s top desert racers. SCORE Trophy-Trucks have won the overall in San Felipe 12 times in the 14-year history of the marquee racing class. To date, Class 1-2/600 has the most entries with 29 followed by SCORE Trophy-Truck and, Class 1 with 20 each, SCORE Lite with 17 and Class 5/1600 with 12.

Chrysler Talking Off-Road

Brian Collins, driver and co-owner of the Collins Motorsports No. 12 Mopar® Dodge Ram Trophy Truck, refuses to bow in the face of bad luck. The Collins Motorsports team has endured unfortunate breaks recently, including mishaps during both days of competition at January’s SCORE Desert event in Laughlin, Nev. But Collins’ resolve hasn’t wavered. The Las Vegas resident remains confident he can manufacture his own good luck with help from Mopar power at the upcoming 22nd Annual Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250. The San Felipe will be on March 15 in San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico.
“I’m really not big on the good luck/bad luck talk,” said Collins. “We’ve had some misfortunes, but that’s just racing. To have them two days in a row is really unfortunate, but you work through it.”
Barring any problems, Collins will drive the entire 232-mile race course solo (his Collins Motorsports co-drivers, Chuck Hovey and Larry Ragland, will be on hand for back up and support). The team was scheduled to begin testing in San Felipe on Saturday, March 8, with plans to pre-run the entire course each day up until race day, making small changes all the while to the Mopar Dodge Ram Trophy Truck.
Although hungry for his first victory under the Team Mopar banner, Collins remains one cool customer, thanks in part to reassurance gained from having Mopar in his corner for the long haul.
“That’s one thing that’s nice about having Mopar and Dodge on board for the long-term. We don’t have to panic,” said Collins. “We can stick to our plan. We’ve teamed up with Mopar and Dodge in fine-tuning some odds and ends. We’ve also been working with Kevin Kroyer [supplier of Mopar R5 aluminum blocks for the team, as well the on-track powertrain advisor]. We’re constantly fine-tuning and updating to make the Mopar Dodge Ram Trophy Truck better after each race. We’re going to just keep moving forward and hopefully those wins will come.”
“Each event that the Collins Motorsports team competes in serves as a test bed for our new ‘Trail” initiative – Mopar Performance Parts for Jeep® vehicles and Dodge trucks,” said Rob Richard, Director of Mopar Parts, Sales and Service Marketing, Chrysler LLC.
Mopar’s “Trail” initiative was announced at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas in October 2007.
“The team’s assistance in testing and developing Mopar’s new off-road parts has been invaluable. It’s only a matter of time before Brian and his talented team places Mopar in the winner’s circle for the first time since the brand’s return to off-road racing.”
Collins Motorsports team views the 22nd Annual Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 as challenging funThe second event in the 2008 SCORE Desert Series, the 22nd annual Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250, features a looping course that begins near the landmark San Felipe Arches and finishes 232 miles later just south of the Arches. One of more than 250 entries in 28 Pro and six Sportsman classes, the Collins Motorsports team will begin the race in the 11th position of the Trophy Truck class. The team is no stranger to the rugged San Felipe off-road trail.
“San Felipe is always a fun race to go to,” said Robbie Goerke, team manager and co-owner of Collins Motorsports. His brother, Billy Goerke, is also a co-owner, as well as the team’s crew chief. “We’ve had our ups and downs there. We’ve had a chance to win, and a flat tire 10 miles from the finish line took us out. The track is a really fast track. You’ve got to have your suspension really dialed in to go racing.”
Goerke added, “The rough there is like rough you have never seen before. Even in the United States, there is nothing comparable to it. There’s a 20-mile section that travels the Zoo Road, and if you don’t set up your truck right, you’ll burn your shocks in the first 20 miles of the race. Our shocks get to over 400 degrees all through that section.”
“I’ve done pretty real [in the past] at San Felipe. It’s a great track,” said Collins. “It’s one of the more off-road tracks. We don’t run on a lot of roads, like we do in the Baja 1000. It’s really rough, really tough, and it’s good for our team.”
Said Goerke, “Right now, we have definitely got the truck to beat. We’ve been doing so much testing, and [Kevin] Kroyer has been developing the engine more and more. It’s just all really coming together.”
Information about the 22nd Annual Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250The green flag will drop on the 22nd Annual Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 on Saturday, March 15. Pre-race festivities, including the SCORE Midway and tech inspections, will take place on Friday, March 14. The awards celebration will take place in the Plaza on the Malecon on Sunday, March 16.

70 Years of MoparWhen Chrysler bought Dodge in 1928, the need for a dedicated parts manufacturer, supplier and distribution system to support the growing enterprise led to the formation of the Chrysler Motor Parts Corporation (CMPC) in 1929.
Originally used in the 1920s, Mopar (a simple contraction of the words MOtor and PARts) was trademarked for a line of antifreeze products in 1937. It was also widely used as a moniker for the CMPC. The Mopar brand made its mark in the 1960s – the muscle car era. The Chrysler Corporation built race-ready Dodge and Plymouth “package cars” equipped with special high-performance parts. Mopar carried a line of “Special Parts” for super stock drag racers and developed its racing parts division called Mopar Performance Parts to enhance speed and handling for both road and racing use.
Today, Chrysler LLC’s Global Service & Parts division is responsible for the manufacturing and distribution of nearly 250,000 authentic Mopar replacement parts, components and accessories for Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles sold around the world. To assure quality, reliability and durability, all Mopar parts and accessories are designed in strict adherence to Chrysler Engineering standards.

Harrah's SPEED Technlogies Press, Awesome!

Speed Technologies, one of the nation’s largest and foremost off-road race teams, will be competing March 14th & 15th in the Tecate SCORE Baja 250 for the first time since the team’s inception in 2006. The race, taking place in small village of San Felipe, Mexico, tackles a mixture of moguls, sand, silt, canyons, washes and rocks over the entire 232 mile course.

Baja Racing News.com LIVE! From Wednesday, March 12....

Gracias El Rancho! Three hours and still going strong. 4:30-7:30 PM

**Thanks for all the emails the Baja Racing News.com Team is ON-IT! for the next four days, there will be big news from here. San Felipe ALWAYS has big off road race news, so check our schedule and be HERE for the LATEST. *****

**Over 280 racers as of today, check out the "RaceDay page" UPDATED and we have one last message to forward, a lost item call out:

""Rigsby Racing lost a spare tire, pre-running. 35" BFG, Yellow tape on Tire. Not flat. Blue or Black Bead Lock.Contact Rigsby Racing at Race Freq. 150845, Or Mamouse518@msn.com""

**Another course question: Whats the terrain like on the entire course? We'll post a topo map of the region Thursday to display the terrain, the northern course is dominated by the Devils Dry Lake to the East, in the lee of the San Pedro de Martir escarpment. Baja's tallest mountain, the Spirit of the Devil, at above 10,000 feet, is to the west of the dry lake. Racers must move north to a crossover trail then cut south on a access road on the east of the dry lake. Valle chico, a broad valley extends south and brings the racers into a great maze of canyons. look at the map, you'll notice the canyon names. Lots of rocks in these canyons and lots of whoops (grande permanente) whoop-de-doos, big rounded bumps and pot holes.

As mentioned, these are not graded roads, so, thirty and forty years of driving use with no blading. At some points on the course, these whoops are SO BIG, they swallow vehicles, you CANNOT SEE THEM inside the holes. Not kidding.

**OK, here is the San Felipe Fish Taco Recipe...easy, just have lots of cerveza for libation! From the kitchen of the El Rancho:

San Felipe Fish Tacos
Ingredients
1/4 cup fresh lime juice, (juice of 2 limes)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp cumin powder
1 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 Tbsp oregano
1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
1 1/2 pounds halibut steaks, (four steaks)
4 flour tortillas, 10-inch diameter)
2 cups pinto beans, canned, or made from scratch
1 cup salsa
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
16 oz. sour cream
Directions
In a large zip-lock plastic bag or dish with cover, combine lime juice, oil, cumin, chili powder, oregano and pepper; stir well. Add fish to lime marinade and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
Prepare grill (medium-high heat) and oil the rack so fish will not stick. Place fish on the hot grill and cook 4–5 minutes per side or [BBQ over ocotillio wood for authentic taste!] until fish flakes easily when teated with a fork. While fish is cooking, wrap tortillas in foil and place on grill to heat. (you have the option of using canned refried beans here, that way you can pay more attention to the race and the cervezas)Place pinto beans in a microwave-safe dish, cover and heat in the microwave. When fish is done, place it in a dish and flake with a fork. Assemble tacos by spooning beans into the center of each tortilla, add flaked halibut and top with cheese and salsa.
Broiler option: Preheat oven broiler, coat broiler pan with vegetable oil spray and broil fish 4–5 minutes per side.
For white sauce: use sour cream with a bit of lime juice.
Pacifico Cervezas suggested.


**More course talk! We've received several more race course questions. Stan in Michigan, the course is chewed up not because of the terrain, but, because of the beating these trails have taken over the years, with NO GRADING! Baja North has a tradition of NOT grading. In southern Baja, where there are more working ranches, the roads are constantly repaired.

**In the old days, there were no strip clubs in conservative San Felipe. The gringos seeking adventure wandered into the broken bars behind the main drag-west and ended up in real dumps, the kind of bars you would see in the B-films. Today, with some club action, the fisherman and spring breakers along with the racers, have something to do at night, not just hammer the booze. over and over and over, cases and cases of cerveza(beer)

Felipe is known for its great desert, seas and future.

**We GO LIVE! Friday time TBD, then Saturday at 5 AM!!!

**RaceFans! Be sure to checkout the newly posted San Felipe race vids, very hot. Also stay tuned through Thursday, we'll post updated race news as we get it, here in Felipe. We are expecting several teams to withdraw, motor issues and Drunk Pirate Lance Clifford will report on his "Miramar experiences!" Can you say, electricity and tequila DO MIX!

San Felipe Prerunning with Baja Racing News.com

“I'm back at the hotel here in San Felipe after a harrowing pre-running experience. We started early this morning, thinking we could be done by 2 p.m. or so. No way, Jose.

We left the San Felipe arches on the whooped out power line road. There was a grader there grading all the whoops. I could not believe it! It's like a freeway. So we stopped at the Zoo road went back to the Arches and did it again just to make sure we were on the course. We were.

It took us 4.5 minutes to go 12 miles. What happened to the nasty stuff, anybody can do that. They have put fences on both sides of the power line road to keep spectators at least 100 feet from the race course. That's good...I think. I saw Sal there painting all the towers with bright fluorescent orange paint so they can be seen from a distance. He was covered with paint. I saw him this evening here at the hotel and he was glowing like the strippers at the strip joint. The guy works hard.

After the Zoo cross-over we started to "hammer it" then suddenly it started raining hard on us. We had seen a black cloud in the horizon but suddenly it moved in fast and we were being pelted. Our four-seat pre-runner was moving right along but then it died. Water, somehow got into the carbs. So we stopped and tried to fix it. We used one of our jackets to cover the carburetors while we were taking them off. When we did, we sat inside and blowed all the water out of them. We used some WD4 to get rid most of the water. It was still raining hard but it was OK under the roof of the pre-runner.

However, by the time we were ready to put them back on, Mickey got out of the car and as he stepped towards the back he was overtaken by a wall of mud. We thought we'd lost him but he wound up hanging onto one of the bright orange towers. We could not get out of the car, so we sat there while Mickey yelled for help. Eventually the mud picked up the car and floated us towards Mickey. Luckily it sent the car right where he was hanging on and we were able to latch on to him while moving. The mud kept us moving and a few miles later we saw mile marker 12 where we were supposed to turn right, but we were riding a wave of mud so we had no control. It eventually dropped us in front of the Mini-Summit. We picked up Mickey who had been hanging all along to the side of the car. He was beat. We put him inside the car and strapped him in and cleaned about 50 pounds of mud off of him. Then we decided instead of going back to mile 12 to the turn-off, we would go up the Mini-Summit. It took us an hour to get to the top. At one time, all four of us had to pick up the pre-runner and lift it over the rocks. But we made it to the top. We thought we were home free as we could see from the top of the Mini-Summit the Highway from Ensenada to San Felipe, near Borego.

Little did we know that the worst was yet to come. So we're coming down the hill and everything seems to be back in order. Mickey finally recomposed himself and is talking. For the next forty or so miles everything is OK. We rejoined the course and now we're cook'n, through San Matias Pass, stopped at Morelia and headed south towards Matomi Wash. Made a quick stop to say hallo to a rancher I had met years ago, who showed me what was eventually to become Azufre Wash. We got going again and were at about RM 136 coasting down the switch-back entrance to Matomi Wash, when we saw a whole bunch of wild horses running towards us on the course. “What the hell?”

There must have been 20, 25 of them coming at us. We slammed on the binders and stopped. Those suckers were heading right at us, so all four of us jumped out of the car and hid behind these huge boulders. The stampede went by us, some trampling right over the hood and roof of the pre-runner, while other wild horses were slamming into the tires, falling right over in front of us. "Wild" frick'n action is an understatement. We waited to see if there were more coming. A few minutes later, we got in the car and started it. We started to go through a really tight, rock section when we heard a rumble behind us. At first, we thought it was someone on a TT pre-running. I looked in the rearview mirror and saw this wall of mud coming towards us. I looked back as did Steve and we both said, "let's get the F#@k out of here!"

We must have hit every hidden rock and bolder on the course but we weren't stopping. No way, Jose. We stayed on the gas for what seemed an eternity, occasionally looking back and seeing the wall of mud no more than 50-70 feet behind us. Heaven help us if I missed a shift or hit something. We would be engulfed, buried, dead!

We finally saw a way to get out of the canyon; I dropped it into first gear and tried climbing out. It was a dead end but we were high enough that the wall of mud just rolled passed us about five feet below our perch. It was around 1 p.m. and we decided that we could not get back into the wash, as it was filled with mud. So, we picked our way on the side of the hills, crawling over rocks and boulders. We finally hit “Chollas to the Max” and rejoined the course at about race mile 152. We were finally on the course and moving fast once again. At Rm 160, we were boogie’n when suddenly the right front wheel flew off. The right side dug in and we were engulfed with dirt. We had busted a spindle. It was about 2:30 p.m. We were at least 8 to 10 miles from the mouth of Azufre Wash. We could have waited around for our chase vehicle to eventually find us, but it started snowing. At first, it was a light flurries. We looked up and this huge black cloud was working itself across the San Felipe Mountain Range and heading towards us. No time to waist. No warm clothing for us. We had to get out of there.

We decided to strap the front A-arm as high as possible, took off the two front right-wheel shocks and I got behind the wheel while the three other guys plus the broken wheel and tire were all loaded on the left-rear side of the car. Mickey, Steve and Anthony were all hanging outside of the car, putting as much weight as possible, while we drove out. It took us over an hour to go about 8 miles and by the time we got to Azufre Wash, we were all covered with snow and ice and freezing our butts. It was five hours later before we reached the General's Taco stand in San Felipe and tried to thaw out. Our pre-run was over. I thought.


I get up to answer the door. There, standing with their rifles in hand are three Federales. They want to see me. They claim I killed two horses. I argued that we never killed anything but that all we saw was a stampede of horses. Some of them ran into our truck as they went by.

They argue that the two dead horses had nurf-bar indentations on their belly and rump, and one of them had PIAA lettering on its side. I tried to argue with them but to no avail. They pulled me out of my room, I just had my shorts on, black socks and black tennis shoes (Converse). They put me in the back of the Policia pick-up along with two other Federals and drove me to where the dead horses were. I froze my A S S for almost three hours, while being bounced around on our way to the mouth of Matomi Wash.

We finally got there and indeed, there were two dead horses lying there colder than week-old pizza. They were already hardening and bloating. The stench was awful but I had nothing to cover my face with unless I took off my shorts. But, I was not about to do that in front of five Federales with guns. The first things that flashed into my mind was the scene in Deliverance. No way, Jose.

So they begun to yell at me as to how I had killed the two horses. The rancher that I had seen earlier was there as well, lamenting about his two fine, "muy caros" (expensive) horses that he'd been training for years. As far as I was concerned those horses looked like rejects from the glue factory, but I could not argue with them.

Needless to say, I had no money on me, just my modesty, so I offered a solution. I told them that we should go back to San Felipe, and I would see my buddy who owns the Tecate Distributorship and buy about 20 cold cases and give it to the rancher in-kind for his horses. Without a blink, the old man agreed. The head Federales stepped in and said "consiguete 30, 10 son para nosotros por todo este pinche viaje," The Federales wanted 10 cases of their own for all their troubles of getting out there. I agreed.

Everyone was shaking hands when we all heard a rumble behind us. Lo and behold! those f&%#g horses were stampeding again, this time the opposite direction. The Federals and the old man scattered, running down hill, while I remember the rock I had hidden before so I dove into it as the horses just barely missed me. I waited a couple of minutes, got up and looked for the others. No inklings of anyone. The “Policia” truck was still there, still idling, I looked around and saw no one. I yelled out (in a soft voice), hey, where are you? "Donde estan?" I waited about 10 seconds, figured they were either run-over by those crazy horses, or they were way down the wash scrambling for their lives. No matter. I got in the truck, blasted the heater as my shriveled-up member was now an inner, put it in reverse and backed up about a half a mile until I could turn the truck around.

Then I made a beeline back to San Felipe with the red lights flashing. I got to the hotel, finished posting, and got the hell out of there. I crossed the border at San Luis Rio Colorado to cover my tracks just in case.

If anyone runs across any of these guys and/or the old man while pre-running, I suggest you don't stop. There's going to be some really pi s sed-off SOBs walking back to San Felipe.

Another Report

The San Felipe 250 first weekend of prerunning went well. Saturday saw blustery temps in the upper 80's while Sunday was much cooler and quite windy. The northern loop hasn't changed at all: whoops, whoops, and more whoops. 18 miles of hardpacked WFO graded road south of Morelia Jct is well, almost boring. The fun starts again at RM 109, a new section that leaves the graded road. Much of this is tight and seemingly overgrown, but will widen once several of the big trucks mow it down. The Matomi, Azufre, and Huatamote (formerly known as Chanate) sandwashes were pristine on Saturday: beds of wild grass and wildflowers. That started to change by Sunday afternoon as the first wave of prerunners buried all vegetation and berms were just starting to form.

I hung out at RM 193, just next to Checkpoint 3 on Saturday and Sunday. We gassed several teams (prearranged) and tried to give out as much worthless advice as possible.

The town of San Felipe is truly excited about the race returning. Our only "incident" occurred when Cameron and Ivan "failed to put their foot down" at a stop sign, which constituted "running the stop sign." That cop and his wife ate well Saturday night.

Matomi is know for those rocks, choice of driving lines is critical. I like an amp amber/red tint lense for matomi and partly cloudy conditions during race day. A sunny day may also require a different lense. I tried a dual layer light sensitive this weekend and I can tell you it was not good for matomi. all people are different and the choice of lense is a personal one. give it a try with different tints and you will see what I mean.

The first 24 miles just sucks more and more every year! LOL it is the same old hell but geez I remember the 1600 car and the fun!

I was able to do 275 miles on my Nicoll/FMF Honda 650 on Sat and then another 100 today! Sick, she eats these whoops up! Rode with Jon Johnson some who I met on the trail from Class 40 and rode today with the Chaplins buddy who is in Mex racing for his first time and he is going solo, what a wake up call this will be!

Many people running out of fuel for how few people it seems are doing their homework. BIG props to Baja Pits for their hospitality pit, there was like 25 people taking a break from pre running there on Sat late afternoon, mostly bikes. I don't understand the bike guys pre running with no spare tubes, hello this is San Felipe. This course has so many lines that we are seeing people looking for their groups all over the place! I think some of these groups should have a better plan before they take off into the washes.

The course, Zoo road crossing is graded for about 300 yards into the jump and about the same out of it. The jump is sort of changed too so I think there will be a ton of carnage here as the tractor kinked the lip. No fence up yet but I'm sure it will be. Big holes just after the turn off from Morellia road like mile 110, big demolishing rollers with a wide open run in!

Oh man Matomi and the other washes are pretty smooth and aboout 85% of the option lines have not even been touched, hopefully the idiots will leave the good lines for those than can remember them on race day. I hate when a good line gets burned in before the race...duh.

The cut through the fence going into Huatomote is a no no so be warned that I think there will be some DQs because it looks way better than the end of the fence line. On Saturday morning it looked like we were the first pre runners of the month but it is already getting beat in. Off to pre run Rice and Beans soon! Whats everyone else think of the course? Oh yeah Nimrod has been working the 4 seater and is getting the hang of it pretty solid, I can even do all the GPS while he is driving without panic!

Another Report

Another, it was Saturday evening at dust just south of the airport turnoff, the crew knows who they are. Its just senseless to drive at those speeds especially during prerun weekend, didn't we loose enough people from our community last year on the chase roads! We were being watch after for sure, it wasn't Big Daddy's first day behind the wheel of a big chase truck and he was able to bring her back on the road without a yard sale.

The point is this: We got to police ourselves! That means drivers/team owners put the word out that if your crew(s) are caught driving carelessly you want to know and will do something about it internally. Also, take the pressure off your crews and let them know that you don't care WHEN they show up to their assignment just THAT they show up.

I know if anyone complains to team owners about a crew driving dangerously he will make sure they are disciplined. Maybe we all need bumper stickers that read "how is my driving? Call my team owner."

The past two trips to Mexico I've been completely runoff the road by other teams. As much as I pray for you guys I have people praying for my safety too and its been proven to me so many times that Christ's hand is on my life keeping me safe.

Many people out of fuel for how few people it seems are doing their homework BIG props to the pits guys for their hospitality pit, there was like 25 people taking a break from pre running there on Saturday late afternoon, mostly bikes. I don’t understand the bike guys pre running with no spare tubes, hello, this is San Felipe. This course has so many lines that we are seeing people looking for their groups all over the place! I think some of these groups should have a better plan before they take off into the washes.


About the guy on the KTM with the flat and no spare tube at Baja Pits on Saturday afternoon (I'm guessing that's who you're thinking of), I gave him some slime, he got some air, seemed to work, then I saw him riding through town about an hour and a half later. Us bike guys may not always be too bright and sometimes ill-prepared, but we watch out for each other and get it done, even a few of us in the Sportsman classes.

And the Mexican guy with the broken arm and the "Mexican Splint" (duct tape and branches) - we saw his truck coming to pick him up and an ambulance waiting at Morelia junction. The dude sat at Baja pits for like 3 hours with a bone almost popping out of his arm, had only 4 Advil and I didn't see anything but a smile on his face. Gotta love Baja!

That means drivers/team owners put the word out that if your crew(s) are caught driving carelessly you want to know and will do something about it internally. Also, take the pressure off your crews and let them know that you don't care WHEN they show up to their assignment just THAT they show up.

I know if anyone complains to team owners about a crew driving dangerously he will make sure they are disciplined. Maybe we all need bumper stickers that read "how is my driving? Call my team owner."

The past two trips to Mexico I've been completely runoff the road by other teams. As much as I pray for you guys I have people praying for my safety too and its been proven to me so many times that Christ's hand is on my life keeping me safe.

Many people out of fuel for how few people it seems are doing their homework BIG props to the pits guys for their hospitality pit, there was like 25 people taking a break from pre running there on Saturday late afternoon, mostly bikes. I don’t understand the bike guys pre running with no spare tubes, hello, this is San Felipe. This course has so many lines that we are seeing people looking for their groups all over the place! I think some of these groups should have a better plan before they take off into the washes.

Another Report



Teams are beginning to fill the streets of San Felipe for the return of the SCORE Tecate San Felipe 250. Teams rolled into town late Saturday night to prerunners galor. With only one week until raceday many drivers and co-drivers are prepared to see the course numerous times.

Riviera Racing arrived to San Felipe, Baja, California over the weekend preparing for the upcoming 22nd Annual SCORE San Felipe 250. No time was wasted as the jet black FORD F-150 prerunner piloted by Mark Post, who was accompanied by his son, Max Post, and longtime navigator, Kelly Courie.

The reigning Baja 1000 Overall Champion and his crew started prerunning at the Arches and never had a problem on the course. In fact, the Riviera Racing prerunner had the new motor installed only hours prior to the crew leaving Southern California for San Felipe. Mark Post commented, “Once again the prerunner has been perfectly prepped and we’re going to need it as we prepare all week long for this race. San Felipe is one of my favorite races of all time and I’m really looking forward to Saturday’s race.”

Rob MacCachren was delayed for one day after receiving the DIRTsports Magazine – Driver of the Year Award, which was presented to him at the Off Road Impact Show in Anaheim, California. MacCachren arrived late Saturday night and has been well underway dissecting the desert sand washes that make up this difficult race. For over 20 years, San Felipe has hosted desert racing events and Riviera Racing is always well-received in San Felipe.

Riviera Racing’s entire crew is here in San Felipe supporting all the prerunning activities for Mark Post, Rob MacCachren and Mark’s son, Max Post. The Baja Fools are slated to provide their pit support services to both Riviera Racing race trucks on race day. The younger Post will race the #233 Riviera Racing Pro-Truck on Saturday morning in the first race as “driver of record.” Max has extensive time behind the wheel of the jet black Pro Truck over the past year while prerunning with his dad at the SCORE Baja 1000.

Prerunning was concluded on the beach resort at Laguna Percebu where Riviera Racing discovered two race team fans had just become engaged on the beach as the team pulled up to the beach front resort. The happy couple was smiling and announced they had met at the 2006 SCORE San Felipe because they were both Riviera Racing fans watching the #3 SCORE Trophy Truck. Greeted by Mark Post on the beach, the couple smiled all afternoon as she showed off her engagement ring. Riviera Racing continues their march towards the finish line at the 2008 SCORE San Felipe 250.
