    NORRA racing people are so fun. Waiting for their vintage truck. They help Score map out their courses and are going out to various access roads to watch and support. So cool.

    ! Baja Bound Adventures Tim Morton ! His team is supporting 4 racers in the 500 this year. First class dude with Baja knowledge coming out of his ears. He was recently inducted into the Baja Racing hall of fame. So great!

    Supporting with Tim Baja Bound Adventures Jennifer Morton, also a Baja racer. Jennifer won her class in the 2016 NORRA 1000 on an XR400r. She is the main reason I picked that bike.:happay

    Check this out! BERNARDO SEGURA PEREZ VALDES on a KTM EXE 1200! He had a hell of a time finishing, at least a couple hours in the dark surrounded my cars but he did finish! Fantastic job!

    Great pictures Tom, this race was fast paced and took major concentration on the navigation. I was more worn out after the two days than five of the 1000. April will be here before you know it.

    The Westhelm truck #811 has a long history and was at one time owned and raced by Mike Nesmith of the Monkeys band/tv fame.
