UPDATE! From Loreto, Sunday May 1, 2011 7 AM Local
The CABO 1000 teams are scrambling for the $24,000 in prize money right now! They left this little sleepy fishing village early at 5:50 AM, before the sun came up and are now screaming (for some teams) to the Beach in Cabo San Lucas.
For the overall timing of the race, only two teams are in contention to win. They started at the head of the field, seperated at the start by only thirty seconds. There was no overnight party for many of the teams who were lucky enough just to get to the start line and qualifying for this mornings start. All further reports will be on CABO 1000.com

LIVE! From Bahia de Los Angeles, Baja California Mexico.
After overnight repairs and some sleep, the CABO 1000 competitors will start before dawn and race to the second day goal - Loreto, Baja California Sur (South).
Todays unofficial results go like this: Two teams are in the lead with seven teams bringing up the middle group. Eleven teams are in various disrepair and behind the rest of the field, with the balance of the teams OUT of the event. Transmissions and Tires took out several teams, including, Jeff Blair from Minnesota. Jeff said today, " Great event but we just didn't have enough time and money into our truck, it broke three hundred miles into the race today!"
The goal of the third day of the CABO 1000 is crossing onto the beach in Cabo. So much of the third day will be racing at night onto the beach. The winning team could make it by sunset. STAY TUNED
