Baja 1000

A few days after returning from the chopper trip I was contacted by my buddy Jim Varshay.
He informed me he was driving a car in a two car team and the other car was not yet complete, needed a co driver. Naturally I accepted the offer.

This new car is quite a car too! I really enjoyed the ride. The transmission let go about mile 164 so we were done. That's racing!
The driver Kevin Ellis had 2 cars entered and as his second car approached us broke in the desert, Kevin and I relieved the two in that car and pressed on to Borego.
That car ended up winning the race!

Well earned cerveza after a long night of racing.

  1. Nice Matt! What a huge stoke... Thanks for the props on your blog. Yet I feel a little overwhelmed by 'testicular fortitude' when I'm talking about being 'teary-eyed' leaving the farm... ha.

    Stay in touch bro. Can't wait to come check you out when I'm back stateside.

    Congrats again on the race.
