The Start of Baja Racing Season in the Desert in 2012 Starts Hard. Robbie Pierce called out, "Pierce needs to retire from offroad and short course racing before he seriously hurts someone."

UPDATED! January 22, 2012

"I'm goin' to spit on your camera"...


Pistol Pete Sohren claims TrophyLite is DEAD.

Then, later this afternoon,  Rick L. Johnson and Matt Scaroni, possibly the two fattest d-bags on the West coast, will announce, they're married!

Johnson is going to be in an ownership position with Scaroni!? An epic unified FAIL opportunity! If they haven't failed already!

Pete from earlier in the day..."just heard some guys didn't get paid from the last race or the championship money and now he quit and "gave" it all back to 'the scumbag Scaroni family'.......baloon payment maybe??? i said, i knew the "sale" deal years ago wasn't real......the 'truth" is difficult for both so figure out how to sift through the BS..." "part of the 2% (claimed to know about the whole story) that $25,000+ is owed to the purse winners from last year???? and that your dad is going to be in charge??? and you have no idea who is going to build the trucks or parts??? and that there is NO PURSE in place for 2012??? there must be a LOT of problems if i only know 2%...

The rumor hit this morning, that the rot-gut tequila purveyors (at an event in San Diego last year, 'real' tequila professionals didn't even list the rot-gut PoonYa brand, because it was too shitty to even taste!) door slingers, will take over the failed series.

And of course, Ramsey El Poodani confirms everything Pete said, without any press release.
Even the fact that the series failed, because the money that was promised, wasn't paid!
Thanks Ramsey El d-bag!

"I'm trying to find a very competive team to partner up with for the remaining SCORE races. I would like to find a Class 1, 10, 12 or maybe 6 truck team that needs an experienced Mexico racer who can win races. I can provide financial and pit support which would be negotiable. I am not looking for a team that just wants to finish races but that wants to win and can win. I would be willing to consider BITD but would have to be right set of circumstances.

BJ Baldwin takes day 1 of racing, blows motor in day 2. Rob Mac takes day 2, with Juan Carlos 'PIN' Lopez taking second place by 1:30 behind Rob and Steve Strobel takes third, on day 2.

Robbie Pierce accused of lousy race driving,  yardsales (again) his Trophy Truck and Jimmy Nuckles does the same at Laughlin.

 January 16, UPDATE:

"We have been praying with him for Cody Stuart (Desert Assassins Trophy Truck Co-Driver) He was hurt yesterday at the Laughlin race when the transmission literally blew up, sending shrapnel and hot fluid into the passenger side of the truck. As well as the entire Groves family who were in a massive car crash on the ...101 yesterday and rescued from dangling off the side of a bridge.

Keep the prayers coming for my 'lil buddy Cody after the surgery he went though last night and this morning. It is great to talk to him today, he's such a solid guy. Long road to recovery starting in Vegas but we are all here for him and praying. I have not spoke to my buddy Jason or got an update on his family but I ask that you keep praying for them as they recover in the hospital in Santa Barbara."

The Laughlin Leap was cancelled this year, to the dismay of desert racing fans across the west.

Mastercraft owner, Robbie Pierce, calls out DGAFer Austin 'Fish' Farner after Farner says, "Pierce needs to retire from offroad and short course racing before he seriously hurts someone. Ya I said it. FACT".

 Pierce: "Fish, feel free to borrow some man pants and stop by the pit and I'll explain your ignorance to you, you key board coward. Jimmy was nice enough to apologize after the crash for driving through us, unfortunately taking us both out. Class act on his part, it's racing and fortunately we'll all race again."  

Farner replied, "See ya at Parker. I'll even buy ya a beer at the bar. Maybe we can discuss suspension seats vs molded too while we're at it".

That brings up the whole assertion that Farner thinks the Mastercraft seats Pierce produces (suspension seats) are shitty. Not safe and shouldn't even be sold in the United States.

 BJ Baldwin heavily dissing General Tires and their "Hoosier" built racing tires, that he "suffered years through". Continues to tweet and praise his new sponsor packeage with TOYO Tires. Baldwin won Saturdays Laughlin Challenge.

Developing...Desert Assassins Bad Luck Hits Cody Stuart, Seriously Injured at Laughlin...In The Hospital in Las Vegas Now

DA Cody Stuart injured when the Trophy Truck of Cameron Steele grenaded...He's getting surgery tonight but it might be a series of surgerys. Like 3 or they might do it all tonight. There's shrapnel in his leg. Bone is crushed. The scary part is there are arteries near the injury. They are intact but they make the surgery really tricky.... Also it's transmission metal in his leg so there's worries about infection.

Desert Assassins Jason Groves wife and daughters got seriously hurt in a car accident, off the track.

So, who's next to get the Desert Assassins dish of Desert Revenge?

 The "Rest In Peace" Desert Assassins event is scheduled later this year

Cody Reports on another Yokohama Tire Fail for the DA Team

Laughlin First Day of Racing Report

Las Vegas’ B.J. Baldwin was able to keep his new year’s resolution by winning the overall and SCORE Trophy victory at Saturday’s season-opening SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge by diligently racing his No. 97 Baldwin Motorsports Chevy Silverado to a winning time of 53 minutes, 45 seconds averaging 55.81 miles hour over eight laps of the rugged 6.25-mile desert race course.

The racing classes are divided into groups for five multi-lap races each day. The start/finish line area and main pits will once again be located at the Laughlin Events Park just off of Casino Drive in Laughlin. The day-long second race of the weekend will start Sunday at 7 a.m. The first motorsport event of the year in the United States in Laughlin, 90 miles Southeast of Las Vegas.
For the first time in the history of the event, each day of the two-day Laughlin gathering has separate race events for purposes of championship points, prize money and trophies.

Baldwin, who won both the 2006 and 2008 SCORE Trophy Truck season point titles, survived a tight battle for the five laps with fellow Las Vegas Rob MacCachren, finally pulling away on the sixth lap when MacCachren was had to stop to change a flat tire. Baldwin, who was also the fast qualifier for the race and started first Saturday, led physically the entire race although on corrected time he was in a dead heat with MacCachren after three laps and had a 10-second lead after five laps before MacCachren had to stop to change a tire. BFGoodrich is his tire company.
