RACE COVERAGE thread: 2013 SCORE Baja 1000
If all goes according to plan, I'll be joining my friends on team toxic velocity for this years 1000, looking forward to another trip south of the border!

Also, interesting news regarding how SCORE is going to be staging the start this year:

As usual, some colorful discussion here:

Congrat's. What class will you be in? The car team I have been working with has decided not to do the 1K this year, so I don't have any plans for this years race, (so far :evil).

AngryShawn 08-02-2013 09:48 AM

We'll be running Sportsman Over unless plans change

I hear an Ironman purse and start at 11 pm the evening before....

11pm start confirmed approved on the score website, but I haven't seen confirmed on the sched just yet.

I'm going to be chasing for a 4wheel team. You may have seen the thread a while back looking for a driver.

Kendall was on a KTM for the 500 this year.

I'd like to help someone (or some team) this year as I am considering an Ironman run on the GRN KLR in a few years. It should be obvious that I'm crazy enough to make a useable team member. I'd like to know more about the possibility of pre-running this year also, where would I look for info on that.

Relax and have fun. Don't go to Paris de Noche without a lot of money in your pocket,( ask the vet's:wink:). Seriously though, you will have the time of your life :clap. Don't worry about the food and most places serve bottled water. The Italian restaurant a few doors down from the La Ventana hotel is one of my favorites. Take lots of pic's. Keep an eye on your stuff, all of it. Learn some Spanish, even if you only know a few words your effort will be appreciated. When you get back, you must post those pic's you took,(no pic's means it didn't happen :freaky)

I have been asked to start the race for an awesome team and am excited to help in any way I can to them get to the finish !

Going to be a long and slow race. Leaving in the morning to scout mark pit locations. Will be running a pit for the Lucky Sperm Class 10 (Cam Theriot/Kash Vessels/Andy Grider) and a couple of Trophy Trucks at aprox RM 567. We will most likely have the pit set up in time to catch all of the bikes coming through.

So where are all of the Ironmen around here???

wrk2surf 10-25-2013 11:39 PM

seems like low numbers but I see Alexander Smith is entered ironman. Seems there is a IM purse too. 11 pm start for bikes .... GNARLY

Got to spend 30 min with Grider's dad a couple weeks ago at the baja rally. What a great dude.. Said when he saw the 19,000 check that they are going back to bike racing .... until he was told it was peso's

Times are GMT -7.   It's 07:55 PM.
