    Hey all,

    I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find the exact dates (e.g. November 14-17th, 1973 or similar) of the Baja 1000 since its inception. There are news stories floating around about the last ten years or so but it ain't easy figuring out exactly when the older races were held.

    Any pointers would be appreciated!
