Josear Carrasco, son of businessman Armando Carrasco, seriously injured at this past weekends RECORD San Quintin racing event

Josear Carrasco, seriously injured during past weekends RECORD San Quintin racing event

Friday, August 23:

"These last days have been a lot of rest and recovery. Josear has had to undergo multiple tests, scanners and x-rays to make sure everything is healing according to the plans and that there are (is) no internal bleeding / blood clots. 

Tomorrow we will discover the success of Josear's skin graft surgery he had on Monday. Due to the severity and amount of burns, you may need additional surgery to reapply the graft. Josear's appetite is increasing, and he is becoming very good eating with a syringe. During the last days, the physiotherapy team has been helping him recover the movement of his legs and today we were able to make him sit next to the bed. This is HUGE considering that yesterday I had a lot of pain when trying to move my legs. Currently, Josear burns are what most concern doctors, as there are many and the healing process is long and painful. Once doctors can check the burns tomorrow, we will have a better schedule of when / if you will have another surgery and what the healing process will be from there. Josear still can't see the visitors, but things are getting better and hopefully he can receive visitors soon. In addition to his burns, the surgeries he received in several other parts of his body are working extremely well and on the road to healing. Thank you for your continued messages, donations and prayers. 

We have been reading messages of support for Josear daily and he never stops smiling. Josear had an accident during the Ensenada San Quintín 250 race."

Thursday, August 15:
A message from Josear:

"Josear has been transported to a trauma hospital in San Diego. It is a miracle that I am here and we are very grateful, but last night we discovered that Josear has many more fractures / fractures than we previously thought, many of them in very crucial areas. 

Jose will have skin graphics for burns, found multiple fractures in the lower part of your skull, upper part of the spine and fractures in the back. They also discovered that his hip is broken and will require surgery, as well as a fractured jaw that will require doctors to close it after the operation. He has undergone femur, shin and arm surgery and they are working to place his collarbone and shoulder in place. Josear will have to undergo many surgeries in the next few days and stay in the ICU for a while. Again, you have no idea how much all your kindness means to Josear and the Carrasco family and friends. 

While he may not understand how the person who hit him and left him there could be so ruthless, for that evil person, there have been hundreds of incredible people who helped us in any way possible. The amount of love we have received from everyone is overwhelming and truly amazing. Unfortunately, Josear cannot see any visitors at this time other than the immediate family, but we will continue to update when I can see the visitors."

Original Story Dated August 12, 2019:

Josear Carrasco was seriously injured over the weekend at the RECORD San Quintin racing event. He was on course, when a private vehicle traveling in the opposite direction, struck him head on. Josear suffered being struck head-on, with the vehicle driving over him and leaving him in the road with his bike in flames.

The vehicle and driver that struck and injured Josear, is at this moment, at-large.

If you have any information about this horrible incident, please report to the authorities!

Armando Carrasco, Josears father, stated: "Thank you all for being on the lookout ... Josear had a head-on accident against a car on the motorcycle today, he is delicate but in recovery, already controlled internal effusion (lost 1 mt of intestine) fracture of femur, tibia, forearm and clavicle . The motorcycle was on but the burns are not risky. Already stabilized and thanks to the prompt response of RECORD weatherman staff and our chase (Rigo, Alex and John are Angels!)." 

Josear Carrasco is currently in intensive care, in hospital, in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico. 


Armando Carrasco confirmed today, Too Much Fun Productions will be holding a Special Event at San Felipe in October to benefit the Carrasco Family in their time of need.

Please stay tuned here on for updated information supporting the Baja off-road community and Josear Carrasco!

Our prayers go to Josear and his family and friends.

SCG BOOT EXCLUSIVE! Baja Racing News Breaking Glickenhaus, Armada Engineering, H1 Media Design, Ted Johnson, Street Lagal PreRunner Baja Boot Public Releases

UPDATED! August 16, 2019
Presenting! The SCG Boot at the Quail Motorsports Gathering
SCG Boot Exclusive Baja Racing News Breaking Glickenhaus Project UPDATES
"Glickenhaus Boot" Baja Street legal Prerunner News Releases: Boot body panels getting fit up now. Who wants to drive this rear engine all wheel drive beast, for the 2019 Baja 1000 desert off-road race? 

It's supercharged, street legal, off-road, made by Scuderia Glickenhaus! A racecar, Trophy Truck, Baja Boot with a pedigree of design genius Vic Hickey, Hollywood Icon Steve Mcqueen, building today by Armada Engineering of Chatsworth California USA.

Racing off-road in the desert wastes of Baja Mexico is one of the most arduous motorsport activities in the world. 

Low-volume sportscar manufacturer Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus plans to play in the unique SCG Baja Boot in November, 2019.

US-based SCG is better known for the sportscars it produces and races at the Nurburgring 24 Hour. With new rules implemented for the 24 Hours of Le Mans now pit the small-scale manufacturer against works outfits such as Aston Martin and Toyota on the world stage.

The infamous Baja Boot

In the inaugural Baja 1000 event, held in 1967, actor Steve McQueen competed in a vehicle called the "Baja Boot", designed by Vic Hickey and sponsored by George Hurst . This very icon is owned by SCG founder James Glickenhaus, the former Hollywood movie producer turned small-batch supercar manufacturer.

Last year the SCG head honcho asked his design team to produce a modern version of the Baja Boot. The SCG Boot was unveiled this week. The aim of the reimagined racer is to compete in the Baja 1000 2019 in a specialized stock class and then drive back home.

“This November we are going to drive our Glickenhaus Baja Boot from San Diego to Ensenada, race the Baja 1000, and drive home. What’s not to like?” Jim Glickenhaus, company founder.

Race engineered

Powering the SCG version is a 485 kW GM-sourced V8. To be competitive in the Baja 1000 the SCG Boot has been built with competition in mind first and foremost. It has four-wheel independent suspension with 480 mm of travel,  40-inch tires, Wilwood brakes and that’s just in standard, road-going form.

In full race trim it has race suspension, with increased travel and strengthened components, dual dampers front and rear, larger brake discs, racing tires measuring 37-inches in size and long-range fuel tanks.

“We welcome any manufacture that makes an SUV to race our new Boot in the 2019 Baja 1000 in a stock SUV class. The Baja 1000 has a stock VW Bug class, a stock truck class, and soon, a stock SUV class.” Jesse Glickenhaus, managing director of SCG.

MOPAR 1000-Horsepower 7.0 426 “Hellephant” HEMI Crate Engine and Super Charger Dream Concept

UPDATED! April 26, 2019 

By Andrew Wendler
"Pricing announced and order books are now open for Mopar's supercharged 1000-hp 426 Hemi V-8 crate engine, known as Hellephant. At $29.99 per pony, Mopar says, more than 1000 people have already pledged to purchase one since its introduction at the 2018 SEMA show, [first announced here, on Baja Racing News]

Mopar plans to celebrate the event by sharing Hemi-themed content on the brand's social channels throughout the day on April 26 (4/26), which Chrysler faithful know as Hemi Day.Thank heaven the engineers who created the most famous version of Chrysler's legendary Hemi V-8 ran out of displacement at 426 cubic inches. Had they had enough material to open up the bore or increase the stroke even slightly, say to 432 or 433 cubic inches, the world would be denied the glory that is Hemi Day, held annually on April 26 for obvious reasons. Of course the easy workaround would be to punch or stroke it to the 500-plus-cubic-inch mark, at which point they'd be required to move the celebration to the month of May to keep thing symbiotic. Although the mighty Hemi has appeared in a few different displacements over its lifetime, it's the 426 variety that has made gearheads gasp for decades".

Robby Gordon Named into ORHOF HowMany Years Too Late? What A JOKE!

What A JOKE!
Robby Gordon gets into the ormhof after how many years? What A JOKE!

When Rod Hall was screwing the pooch with the ormhof, he didn't induct anyone for over seven years straight! 

Baja Racing News Has Shamed the ORMHOF For Years! 

Jackson Motorsports/Frank DeAngelo pays Matt Martelli/Mad Media Thousands of Dollars to COVERUP Racing DEATHS and Fake Hall of Fame BULLSHIT...Who pays Mad Media for all the Social Media Crap and 'authorizations' to allow people on the ormhof, board, members and the rest?

*Frank DeAngelo/Jackson Motorsports/BFGoodrich Tires*

Who makes all the money playing Franks monkey?

*The Martelli Midgets/Mad Media/Race-Dezert*

Think of that when you see ormhof posts on facebook and the people chosen for the ormhof year on year.

Rod Hall and Frank DeAngelo. That's why the thousands of eligible racers who should be in the hall of fame, aren't!

No Bob Gordon and many others, because Frank tells Martellis who gets in. The president? McMillin is a simple-stooge. No one else has any say into the induction process. No, Andrew is not the president.

How many years did it take Frank DeAngelo and BFGoodrich Tires puke to ALLOW TOYO Tires racer, Robby Gordon to get into their laughing stock of members? 

Robby Gordon and his father have been left out simply because they ran another tire brand? How many other racers SHOULD be in that stupid 'halloffame'?

Matt Martelli sticks his head up Mexico's Ass!

The exact quote from Martelli midget Matt: Mexican racers are better than USA racers.

Now Matt Martelli tells the Ensenada press he wants more "Mexican" racers at his Primm race! How many "Mexican" hof inductees are there? Matt, you are an asswhole.

"The owner of the Mint 400 off-road race, Matt Martelli, announced that he is looking for more Mexican motorcycle and vehicle teams to participate in his event for 2020."Every year we want more teams from Mexico to travel to Las Vegas for our race, I make an attentive invitation to them to join a unique adventure, since I know the potential that all their pilots have in the Off-Road, they are of the better in this sport, "concluded the US promoter."

The ormhof fees, that Matt pays his mortgage on, has maybe 2 Mexican members!

And you and Frank claim to be Baja-Savvy?
You're stealing from the Republic of Mexico and times up, gringos...

And you want THEM to pay your entry fees to race in your POS Primm fuct!?

How much more are you going to jack the entry fees and NOT get a room for the drivers meeting and NOT give them event T-SHIRTS?

So, do you want to cornhole them also?

Do you and Frank huff glue and paint?

Still covering up racing deaths?

So happy 4WP Four-Wheel-Parts Joey D and Greg are still in... So much Media Win!...

The off road motorsports hall of fame is a fucking joke. Stay here we'll tell you more...
