That sounds like an awsome race. Unfortunately I will be in Alaska that week, otherwise I would grab a couple Baja friends and join in the fun.

As stated by the man himself at the promoters summit a few years back "if the BLM charges more I will just charge more... that's how I've always done it!"

While the Baja Challenge is a Double Points Paying, DUAL STAGE event there are many riders concerned with participating due to lack of lighting.

SO we have created the "Day Pass" which is a $25 discount for those who only want to participate in the Day Portion of the event.

Worried about points? All teams will be scored during the day and receive points based on their finish. Then they will be lined up and start accordingly for the night stage and receive points based on their finish.

SO for those who only wish to participate in the Day Stage GET AT IT!!!

Purvines Racing aboard their American Beta's of every size have been the most dominant force in western off-road all season. They have won every GXE Team race overall and taken both the Pro and Pro 2 Stroke points lead handily.

Nick Burson and Justin Morrow just took a huge win at the Vegas to Reno over the THR Kawasaki team by a mere 5 seconds.

The team has been stacking the top 10 at every National Hare and Hound, including the GXE Reno Extreme National Hare and Hound where they fielded all riders their riders on 2 strokes, with their mega talented crew of Axel Pearson, Dan Capparelli, Ryan Smith, TJ Hannifin, Jeremy Purvines and Curtis Bradley.

At the Baja Challenge the teams are there to dominate once again while they do testing for the upcoming 24 Hours of Glen Helen. With all the extensive light testing - through Mran, GXE and other races - you wouldn't be surprised to see the Team in Baja in the future some time!

Ron Purvines and the entire team have put their full faith and support behind the GXE series and have been having a great time chasing the Pro titles. Ron has laid down the challenge to all the other Factory and Privateer teams to come out and bang some bars with them in the dark.
