Keep the updates coming Jake. If there is not a lot of bottlenecks, UTV's could have a really good showing tomorrow.

You know it!

I mean since you mentioned it, check out the beast of a Contingency photo gallery I just uploaded:



Also in that story are links to live tracking and live video feed. It really is worth the click through!

We're ready to rock at around I'm hearing 12 PST. Our throw together team from Mexico has exceeded all expectations so far! The guys are just awesome is all I can say....really more than that. It's been a great experience and we haven't even started.

Getting close, the race starts at 10 I believe, UTVs are the 13th class off the line!

Sorry I don't really know about the weather, I just sent a text though. Was supposed to be partly cloudy in ensenada all week and the pictures look dry though!

Sunny blue sky about 75 and an awesome day. Helicopters are hovering so trucks are starting.

I read on RDC that a 10 car hit a power pole going into the wash and nobody is leaving the starting line until they get it taken car of.

I guess I'm only watching.

Looks like by tracker...

EDIT: Actually Wayne Matlock is in top 3 but I didn't have him selected.

A lot of cars are not tracking. I just heard that 1932 just cam through RM115 and got fuel. They are physically in 5th, and who knows on corrected.

tracking never really seems to be very reliable.

I am just checking back in after watching the horse race

Frankie, look to the left of the Baja 500 logo on your post. It says, 'Last seen 1 hour and a half ago.' So the tracker appears to have broken. Not the first time.
