OFF-ROAD LIVE! April 4, 4PM CABO 500 PreRuns in Paradise!


After nearly ten years of motorsports reporting, FOX SPORTS has resigned OFF-ROAD LIVE! as the sole source of 'West Coast' racing news. "Desert Off-Road racing reporting from our friends in San Diego has helped our FOX SPORTS1 Group ratings numbers, noticeably." "The recreational west coast marketplace of 'Mad Max' style, desert off-road racing is growing and FOX relies on the Hollywood based team at OFF-ROAD LIVE!"

FOXSPORTS1 has realized the fastest media ratings increases, year-to-date, than any other broadcast property, across the nation. "Arbitron numbers over the most recent past books, while we have worked with OFF-ROAD LIVE! have clearly reflected an under represented sport public." 

"We will be expanding our event coverage over several "RaceWeeks" this racing year, 2016-2017". OFF-ROAD LIVE! will announce next week, during Monday's regular show at 4PM new LIVE! coverage from United States racing events. The show will originate in Cabo San Lucas, as the team (OFF-ROAD LIVE!) preruns a challenging new race-course. The popular private celebration of the desert racing lifestyle, will be highlighted on the FOXSPORTS1 Network, during the Fall  ratings sweeps.

Welcome to Jail Time! San Diego is the Heart of Baja Racing

By: Debbi Baker and Gary Newsome

A San Diego man who tore up the streets of San Diego in a souped-up, Baja Bug on steroids (off-road VW) in a video seen by more than one million people will be cooling his heels in jail after pleading guilty to several charges Monday including reckless driving. 

 “I guess having to much fun on the streets of San Diego can cost you a lot more than you would think after its all said and done. It's not expected its appreciated so don't get it twisted! I hope you all enjoyed the video and use me as example of what not to do.”

Blake didn't mention, that the Baja races break all the rules, all year long, in Mexico! We even run over and kill! Our racers become champions when they strike and roll-over spectator passenger cars and trucks on the race course! 

Blake Wilkey, 27, who was originally charged with 26 counts, pleaded guilty to four misdemeanor charges of reckless driving, one count of exhibition speed and one count of failing to obtain a special event permit. He was sentenced to 45 days in jail and placed on three years probation. Wilkey was the smiling driver in the video called “Urban Assault: San Diego Shark Attack,” which was posted on YouTube in January and has since gone 'viral'. Meaning alot of people have seen it. Downright retarded! 

 An even more contrite Wilkey posted this on his page last week: "Monday morning at 8 am downtown I will be facing a judge on 26 misdemeanor accounts for the urban assault video. This was not taken lightly by the prosecutor and I hope it won't be to heavy of a burden on me after its all said and done. If you would like to come show some support and see how it all unfolds let me know! Strength in numbers." Not really.

Besides the 45 days in jail, Wilkey was also ordered to spend two consecutive weekends in jail for a probation violation. According to City Attorney spokesman Gerry Braun, he also faces a minimum six-month suspension of his driver's license. The 'man' slapping down 'da flatbillers! Bogus dude!
