OMG, I hope Martha is not in this and is ok. We love talking to her at the races.

per Robyn Gordon: Yes, it was RGM semis hauling SST trucks for ROC in Mexico City. Mexican driver crossed over and hit Mike head on and Martha turned her truck on it's side trying to avoid accident. Both semis are totaled. Now accessing damage to SST trucks. Mike is in the hospital with a few broken bones. Martha is ok. Trying to get them back the states.

Is the Mike who drives for RGM across country and also drives for RPM?
wither way im glad they are OK. mike is one hell of a guy

I do not know how many of you know but Ricky Brabec broke his engine today. Here is the news post from Dakar news page..."08:07 Broken engine for Brabec!
Huge change of scene in this Dakar! After only 56 km of special, Ricky Brabec broke the engine of his Honda. The leader of the general, who up to now had achieved an exemplary rally and could hope to be the first American to win the Dakar, is heading straight for abandonment!"

yeah, that's a bummer man

All three speed xxs will run together today

As far as Mexico City everyone in the accident was OK however it remains to be seen the damage to the racecars

I'm glad everyone is ok.
I saw the Instagram pic, that will probably buff out....

Link? Don’t do Instagram...Thanks!

Wow! Thanks!

Thank You
