Last year I helped the Gordon/Arciero/Crabtree team along with Cam Theriot's Lucky Sperm team. Well Cam has stepped up to the plate and rather than racing his pre-runner he has bought a vintage racer just fo racing NORRA. The car is one of the most Bad Ass cars ever to be raced in Baja:

Here it is as Cam Bought it from Don Adams yesterday:

Here it is as it was raced by Bob Gordon & Scoop Vessels:

Another of Scoop:

And finally the the guy who first built it and raced it, none other than Parnelli Jones:


Hang on to your hats ladies and gents this is going to be good!

Curious if anybody knows what the options will be for pit support this year. I wasn't too happy with where MAG 7 set up last year, all of the stops were on the specials, even on the short special stages. Understandable on the long ones but on the shorter ones where there should be no problem on fuel range would be very nice if they could set up on the transit, either at the start or end of a stage so we didn't have to burn time on the specials getting fuel.

I am still all little annoyed at MAG 7's lack of organization last year, setting up too late on one stage so the fast guys never got fuel (of course that wasn't a problem for me ) but more importantly the fact that they set up on a spot that wasn't even on the actual race corse on the last day. Unless I hear from good authority that they are better organized this year I am not giving them any money and will try to figure out fuel on my own.

Except for the last special on day 1, most entries support vehicles can be at both the start and end of all of the specials. Also, there are just too few entries requiring help to allow additional services to break even on expenses. So I highly doubt there would be any additional pit support services coming out of the woodwork.

If you can keep up with your race vehicles, says the guy with two thumbs pointing at himself, i.e., me.

Which gets even trickier when you have multiple riders supported by the same team. Imagine if you were trying to support both a slow rider (like me) and a fast rider (like Gilkey). No way you would have caught back up if you waited at the end of a stage to fuel me up.

I picked up this 1973 Ford Quadravan 4x4 last week.

It was a former Ambulance for the Teton County Wyoming Backcountry Search and Recue unit.

El Spiderman is trying to talk me into entering it into this years race and ditching the bikes!!!!

El Dr. Feel Bueno?

The interior has operating lights above the gurney, hookups for vacuum pump and 2 heaters (NO A/C!).....
