Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 / Ensenada to La Paz - Nov 15 - 18
« on: November 04, 2006, 06:42:49 PM »
I think I have some little spirit that sits on my shoulder and lets amazing things happen to me at times.

I call it my Dream Spirit.

The Dream Spirit's been good to me over the years.  It let me chase the dream of stadium racing in 98 & 99

It let me go desert racing in 01 and has continued to be good to me in the dirt world.

This morning it struck again. :worthy:

I'm riding in Pete Sohren's Trophy Truck in the Baja 1000!!!


I head to Phoenix next Saturday, we head down to Old Mexico on Sunday, pre-run Monday and Tuesday and then sit down, strap in, shut up and HAUL on Wed in the TT!!!

The truck is #6 off the line and I'll get to ride from the start to the Bay of LA - about one third the race - 377 miles.  I'll then become pit support or what ever they need.

YEEEEEE   HHHAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I first started reading this, I thought you were getting a ride in the truck, but to actually be in the RACE, AWESOME!
The usual 'my two cents' disclaimer applies. :)

This is actually just SCORE's way of luring another sucker to the race year in and year out.

I can see it now......Neil. I need a car I can run the Baja with. Sign me up for a spot to be your co-driver!

Sorry, I'm a bit late posting this here at POPS...

I'm not frequenting this or the P-O board much anymore.  My focus has changed a bit over the past couple months and I tend to hang around on a couple other boards - Race-Dezert.com and minibuggy.net

I had an amazing week in Mexico.  Unfortunately a bad bearing took us out of the race after only 140 miles in the Trophy Truck, but I got in about 500 miles of pre-running and I now have an open invitation to navigate in the Trophy Truck anytime I want.  - I'm heading to Vegas this coming Thursday for the Terrible's 400.  I'll take that seat!!!  I'm actually getting to race in the desert on a big time scale, and even though I'm not steering, I'm involved.  It's awesome.

Here's my write up on my experience with the 2006 Baja 1000  Enjoy!
