Strong Bad called it a while back, something like "the sportsman bikes were
F-cked" it looks like that statement is coming true

I think "The Sportsman bikes are Fucked" is what I should have said. Some of you know me well enough to know that it is what I meant!!

I have said all a long.
If you want to Race in the BIG EVENTS like SOCRE, Pay your dues
and step up and ride PRO!!!!
I also think that Score should start an PRO Ironman Class
If you are a True Sportsman there are other events thet you can enjoy Baja and be a lot safer
The Sportsman class was just a cash grab by Sal Fish and Put racers in Harms way.
This is JMO.

It has been a very interesting trip so far. These guys know their truck and are fast but suck at logistics. Driving down I had to help find a place to stay because they hadnt yet. They also wanted to drive through tj at midnight and head to ensenada without a place to stay. I said fuck no multiple times and they finally listened.

Its been interesting to say the least. :eek:

No. They finally listened and we stayed in the US that night then got a place in ensenada.

Thanks for the help though.

This is getting interesting. If it works out it will be one hell of a accomplishment.

Let's just say its going to be a very long night.

Race truck. Engine. Having your engine in the truck before the race... overrated.

It's a fact there are other decent trucks out there with junk yard motors, but not likely ones found the day before!
It'll be awesome if that thing finishes. Quite an experience so far!
