SATURDAY, AUGUST 4, Mission Viejo, California

10-3 PM Shepherd of the Hills United Methodist Church, 26001 Muirlands Blvd., Mission Viejo, CA 92691 (just east of I-5 at the La Paz exit).

It was an adventure ride that created a racing tradition. Fifty years ago Dave Ekins and Bill Robertson Jr. rode two new Honda Scramblers from Tijuana to La Paz in a timed promotion to prove the durability of these new bikes. Today the Baja 1000 is the premier, toughest and longest running off road event in the world involving trucks, cars, ATVs and motorcycles.

You are invited to come and socialize, share stories, and introduce the family to the legends: Dave Ekins (original Scrambler rider) and Johnny Campbell (11 time Baja champ and owner of JCRacing).
