BREAKING NEWS!!!

Spectator Run-Over and Killed at Laguna Del Diablo; Story LOADING NOW>>>

*At this years Baja 1000 a spectator was struck and killed at Laguna Del Diablo; Cristina Eugenia Gil Bermúdez was 31. 

The incident occurred at Race Mile 151 at apprx. 5 PM local time. The victim was struck by the number 271 Trophy Truck of Carey Chrisman. The 31-year old victim was believed to be part of the number 563 team of Marco Gomez. 

The 'Mexican Federales' (Mexican Federal Highway Police) were on the scene of the crash and even after four hours of investigating, they were just getting to the insurance info at 10 PM local time!

Hours after the Trophy Truck accident occurred, two vehicles collided causing one of them to roll over, just 100 feet away from where the original accident happened. And in the aftermath of those two incidents, a fan had a seizure on site. From local knowledge the area around RM 151 is flat lake bed that runs in front of El Chinero Mountain. MORE>>>

SCORE FIRST MOTO ACROSS THE LINE CRASHES INTO THE FINISH LINE CROWD SENDING SPECTATORS TO THE HOSPITAL WITH BROKEN BONES, THEN SCORE TAKES THE WIN AWAY FROM THE 1x

**Moto Class Francisco Arredondo  and his talented team claimed their third straight victory of the season when apparent winner 1x Samuels was penalized after the race by SCORE race officials for a reckless incident at the finish line ramp. 

Ian Young was the rider for the last 200 miles of the race. The adjusted finishing time for the 1x team was 21:26:47. Arredondo, 40, a veteran international rally racer, shared riding responsibilities for this race with Shane Esposito, 43, Temecula, Calif./Justin Morgan, 27, El Cajon, Calif./Max Eddy Jr, 33, Barstow, Calif./Ty Davis, Oak Hills, Calif. 

The Arredondo team finished the gritty challenge in 21 hours, seven minutes, 17 seconds while averaging 54.157 mph. Beginning the race from the first position, they crossed the line at approximately 9:17 p.m. PT Thursday night.

For Ox Motorsports, SCORE Race officials assessed a 30-minute penalty which moved the No. 1x to second place with an adjusted total time 21:26:47.


With the overall motorcycle victory, Honda extended their race-record total to 27 courtesy of the No. 45x team. 


'AutoWeek' claims 0x Motorsports cheated AND pulled a Major Boner:
  

"At the finish it was the motorcycle team of Colton Udall, Mark Samuels, Ian Young and Justin Jones who crossed the line first, having shared riding duties on their No. 1x Ox Motorsports Honda CRF450X bike. But the apparent winners were penalized after what looked like a glitch on the GPS software that showed straight lines where the course curved over the terrain. Some of the straight lines appeared to go over the water. So something was wrong. 

Baja 1000 map
AutoWeek: "This is the problem with GPS trackers, maybe. The gold line is the route the tracker claims motorcycle rider Samuels and company took, impossible unless they had a water bike. The red line is the course route."SCORE-International data

The Ox Motorpsorts team was assessed a 30-minute penalty, which moved it from first place to second. As of now SCORE has said, “…apparent winner (Mark) Samuels was penalized after the race by SCORE race officials for a reckless incident at the finish line ramp.” We are awaiting more information on that from SCORE-International, sanctioning body of the race. 

A report in a Spanish-language Mexican media outlet said Ian Young, who rode the final 200-mile leg of the race for the team, did a wheelie across the finish line ramp. That could be considered race-winner exhuberence, couldn't it? But we weren't there so we don't have the full story and SCORE has not responded to our request for more information about it.

BRN Comment: So, so Funnay!!! The regular press reporting on Baja Racing...and waiting for SCORE to reply??? WAFJ

In the meantime, the official motorcycle winners are the No. 45x Bremen-Arredondo-Haines Racing Honda CRF450x, whose official finishing time was 21:07:17. Francisco Arredondo, from Guatemala, paced the team with co-riders Shane Esposito, Justin Morgan Max Eddy Jr. and Ty Davis, all of Southern California."

***The father/son team of Juan C. Lopez and Carlos “Apdaly” Lopez from Tecate, Baja California, Mexico, took top honors in the 50th running of Baja Mexico’s  desert race. 

The team’s fluorescent-orange RPM-sponsored Chevy Trophy Truck covered the 1134.40-mile course in 19 hours 53 minutes and 36 seconds. The Lopez family team had finished second for the last two years behind Rob MacCachren, who won the race each of the last three years. This year MacCachren was in contention for the lead when his engine blew, 550 miles into the race event. Had he won, he would have been the first driver to win in four consecutive years.

The Lopezes crossed the line more than an hour ahead of second-place Trophy Truck finishers Cameron Steele and Pat Dean in a Ford F-150. 11 minutes behind the Steele/Dean truck came the McMillin Racing Ford of Dan McMillin and Gary Weyhrich in third place.
