Heading down in a hour

Party time in Baja....

I'll be at a wedding but you know I'll be here on my trusty IPhone lol 

Tough starting position ...lots of dust to race thru....Best of Luck to RG and the Speed Energy TEAM!!!

I am becoming a quick off road racing fan and in doing so I am trying to learn the ins and outs of the sport. How does Robby get stuck with the 28th starting position?

Luck of the draw.

Everyone entered before a certain date is put in a drawing for starting positions (by class) at Score races. BiTD has a qualifier where fastest time determines first 20 starting spots. After that it's draw for position also.

I'm with you Jay. I want to understand the sport, but am not sure where the best place to start is? I know nothing about it...any thoughts would be very helpful...

1 of the easiest way I know of to learn about the sport is to watch the movie Dust To Glory . As much as I know about desert racing watching it not only brought back great memories it taught me a few things I had either forgotten or didn't know in the 1st place . Another thing you can do is go to the OffRoad Hall of Fame website to learn more about the legends of the sport , such as Corky McMillen , Walker Evans , Rod Hall , Malcolm Smith , Sal Fish , Bud Elkins , Ed Pearlman , and one of my favorites Ivan Stewart . Here's a link to the Hall of Fame site http://ormhof.org/
