723 Chase Accident Update: From

UGH! It was a terrible nightmare for all of us on the teams for 76 and 723. To keep for the … and the grieving family, as as the one who is in critical condition at the hospital now and her family, and for the 3rd who was quite young, I give details without for now. I will call chaser #1, 2 and 3.

There were 3 in one of our chase vehicles, which was southbound on highway 1 just of the LA Bay turnoff. The driver was following a but slow semi for a long and in a safe, straight section of the attempted to pass the semi. the pass, the left wheels off the road.

When the attempt was to get back on the road and finish the the truck spun out and rolled than once, while out a few pillars, and losing gas cans promptly exploded. All three were seat belted. #1 was able to get out with some assistance, and while he was pretty up, and shooken up, he was able to walk

Chaser #2 and 3 were pinned in the when the final roll on the roof. Our first team vehicle on the scene was following and the accident. The three chasers in vehicle worked tirelessly to pry doors and get chaser #2 and 3 out of the truck.

#2 survived, while chaser #3 did By then, the 3rd and 4th team chase (which included us) were on the and even though alot of us know each other, we all in to help, along with the many other chase from other teams who assistance. The support from the community was really great.

We weatherman worked his a** off to get the flight to us, but it was several hours before we able to get Chaser #2 and 3 into a to head to Guerrero Negro they boarded a plane to go For this reason, I greatly both chasers #2 and 3 who remained and were very brave the entire time in spite of pain and fear settling in.

The whole team would like to give a big shout out to the team manager, who stayed calm and extremely professional as he the radio, gave direction to the team spread out over the (who all promptly pulled out of the upon receipt of the news), and manage the horrific scene in front of him. He is still in right now waiting for the last to travel up the peninsula and get safely

Vildosola Jr. to the finish.) — Tavo (Vildosola started the race in 25th and that was a hell of a job because to get past all these SCORE Trucks is just almost These guys did it. I’d like to congratulate them.

They did a job to none. My part was a small in the center of the peninsula. My job was to keep it and get it to them in the same position gave it to me and they did the rest.

do a fantastic job. This was a much stronger battle 2010. In 2010 we started and took the lead right San Felipe, but this one was a little difficult.

We had to drive really starting from 25th.  GUS VILDOSOLA, JR. said: It was tough at the beginning and there were a lot of in front of us. Getting around was a little difficult but our plan was to be in place by Puertecitos. We were in 10th place at the goat

We decided to take it easy there on down and try to conserve the Trophy Truck through San This is a new (driver’s) suit I put on at race mile 785 and it looks it went 1000 miles. We through the first 618 miles and I got out at San

It was just a hell of a race and I’m proud of our guys and extremely of (co-pilot) Javi (Valenzuela.) We down here and say that we Mexico and we went out and won another one for We lost three or four with a flat. We were B.J. (Baldwin) at that and (Ryan) Arciero was behind us.

I I lost it (the race) because I was pushing hard to B.J. and we got the flat and all of a sudden at race mile 1000 we saw him so we chased after him and passed We got some clean air after which was nice. I’m in love the new SCORE Trophy Truck. It is and we drove by everyone today. We spent some time at some video of the start the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 2011 in preparation.

I drove hard at the start (of the 2011 SCORE Baja 500) and it get me anywhere. At the Tecate SCORE 1000 in 2010 I drove smart and went really when I could and I just back when there was no I did the same thing this and it ended up working out for us. We passed five trucks before Negros and we were 10th

By Puertecitos we were running in the top We just had a good, smart There has been a noise from the SCORE Trophy for the last 400 miles and I was praying to get to the line.

I’ve been the SCORE Trophy Truck for the 100 miles.

B.J. BALWIN –  — B.J. (Second in and second overall four-wheel Baldwin drove the entire — I was just getting warmed up and ready to make my move on (Vildosola) and then it (the ended.

It was definitely a tough day for me. We on having Mark Post get in at 795 and we got to mile 790 and kept calling on the but nobody was answering. Before you it we were at mile 820 before we from our pit. Our pit ended up at mile 835. If I had gotten there was going to be no time for me to get in so I stayed in while we got fuel and

We had a couple of mishaps with our that cost us quite a bit of One of the fuel fillers was not working They had to change that and on the very last fuel pit we had a problem with the fueling It was just stuff that we up on and stuff we need to lace up for year.

We had a good race and the Trophy Truck ran really and it was a really good in San Felipe. I got slipping at about mile 85 and (Menzies) got around me. I just the wrong line. I screwed up and got around me.

When we got to San Felipe, all the big bumps were, I drove around Rob MacCachren and Bryce. where we were first car on the and we led for most of the day. It was a good for us but obviously we would have to have won.

I didn’t any communication all day and I didn’t know we. Our radio was not working very This is my third time second at the Tecate SCORE 1000 so I’m over this and I’m to win it. Maybe next year.

I like to get a fifth championship in the It would be nice to be a five-time off champion. (On finishing second times this year,) it is the same as going 200 miles and a drivetrain. It is that disheartening. It is as disheartening as getting a DNF.

(Vildosola) win today was not a hard win. It wasn’t a hard battle between me and him. He was on and he drove really well. The that I didn’t get out when I was to, really wore down on me A thousand miles was easy as the last 122 miles was the hard

I wanted to get out and move my hips and and get all the fluid moving in my body, get get a sandwich and get intelligence. Intelligence is wins races.

MARK – TT9  — (Third in class and overall four-wheel vehicle. (Weyhrich) drove start to 620. Mark drove to the — There was a lot of traffic up north and we in a really good pack of He was trying to get around a guy in San Matias and put it off the course and down a ravine. We down about 15 minutes that and enough slower got by us that the leaders gapped us by 20 minutes.

We were fighting to get back the whole rest of the I had a lot of motion sickness so I wasn’t fast on the first part of my Other than that it was

We ran the same BFGoodrich front the entire race with no Luck just wasn’t on our today.  There are so many teams anymore that to be third is quite an accomplishment.

We are to have that. It’s at night because there so many sportsman bikes and There were like 50 of I think and it was just a bear to get them all night long. put up a ton of dust at night.

It is amazing they (SCORE) do down and we are all very grateful that give us a chance to come out and fulfill our dreams.

RYAN – TT49 — (Fourth in and fourth overall four-wheel Arciero drove start to 615. Troy Herbst to the finish.) — This team ever give up and that’s why I being a part of the Terrible Motorsports team.

Troy did a fantastic job. He got stuck in the mud the end but he was giving Tavo (Vildosola) and (Baldwin) a run. He was chasing down and I would rather him doing that, trying to them down, than third.

The SCORE Trophy ran great all day long. It was incredible. We so deep in the field. The start was so We gave the SCORE Trophy to Troy and we were the third place.

My hat is off to him and the team. They gave up. They spent 40 trying to dig themselves out of the mud and got a flat that and still chased guys down.

DANIEL – TT23 —  (Fifth in and fifth overall four-wheel McMillin drove start to Chuck Hovey drove to the — I had no issues except one flat I had a great SCORE Trophy with no issues all day.

It was CO-DRIVER CHUCK HOVEY It was a good day. Daniel had a run and he brought the SCORE Trophy to me in third place. Very I had a great run too but my only real was with my helmet.

My pumper and my helmet kept fogging up. We doing pretty good and our own until we got over in the fog on the coast. I was done and I couldn’t see so I had to open my I ran with it open for about 200

This was a perfect running Trophy Truck.

STEVE – TT94 — (Sixth in and sixth overall four-wheel Strobel shared driving with Dale Ebberts and Gay — The first half of the race was dust, dust. You’ve got to bide your time out

Around race mile 900 it got wet (the fog) and I thought we in for a long evening but it got better and away. I put my lens up and I was trying to my glasses and we clipped a cactus on the other side but other that is was good all day. The fog as bad out there as I thought it might been.

ANDY McMILLIN – —  (Seventh in class and overall four-wheel vehicle. McMillin drove start to El Scott McMillin drove to Andy drove to the finish) — We had a solid run. I had two flats

I didn’t hit anything but they went flat and that was I had no flats on my second run but we had some problem or ignition problem and the was shutting off on me up toward San Felipe. We a lot of time dealing with We spent 15 minutes in the pit trying to the problem but couldn’t find

We just kind of cruised in there and knew we weren’t in The course is pretty much the as 2010 but there are a few extra because of the hurricane. It was a fun course but

BRYCE MENZIES – TT1  — in class and eighth overall vehicle. Menzies drove to mile 531. Jones to the finish.) — CO-DRIVER JESSE said: Bryce Menzies had a great run going and he stuck B.J. Baldwin all day up until 531 at Vizcaino.

He smelled some oil and stopped and checked. We had a crack in an oil so he had to sit there and wait. We threw one (an oil into a chase truck some extra oil and got it out to him. He got the to me but it took about an hour and a

That was the only problem we had for one flat tire in the middle of the I stuffed a rock. It was operator

NICK VANDERWEY – TT84 (Ninth in class and 10th four-wheel vehicle. Vanderwey driving duties with Vanderwey and Curt LeDuc.) — The were a little goofy but the ran fine. In Loreto I tipped the Trophy Truck on its side. The cord on the radio was loose and not and when we fell on our side the started working and we could our crew talking. We broadcast we just rolled over and our was nearby.

They pulled us and we never had the radio working It was like a miracle that the comes on while we are on our side and we get righted, it doesn’t. It’s Two SCORE Trophy Trucks got by we were sitting on our side so a bummer.

I gave away a positions and that just need to happen.

SERGIO – TT88 —  (Tenth in Salgado shared driving with Matt Loidice and Julson.) –  CO-DRIVER MATT said: We didn’t have any at all for two rookie SCORE Trophy drivers. Our whole goal was to make it here and finish.

PETE – TT2 —   (Eleventh in class) MARCOS GOMEZ said: We hit a dog at mile one, then we had a two miles in. We changed the flat, get going, and we go off the cliff at race four in the dust trying to the three trucks that us. We come out behind an apartment get back up on the road and at mile eight we get a second flat.

At marker 15 we get a third flat and now no spares and our crew is at pit 150. Sohren pinned it with a rear flat all the way to Ojos We thought we were going to the left rear hubs. We two or three hundred miles and had flat.

The little valves popped. I got in the truck at 545 and we didn’t have any problems. It was a smooth run from there but unfortunately you can’t give up much time early.

There’s a lot of good SCORE Trucks now and the series is obviously more competitive all the time. we are happy with our result.

ROB – TT20  — (Sixteenth in MacCachren shared driving with Robbie Pierce.) — We first gear at mile 70, but was no big deal. The problem was that we reverse too.

When Carlos Lopez was way behind us we it would be smart to change a when Robbie (Pierce) got in. We we had the time and it wouldn’t kill us. Robbie got about five from me getting in he became for about three hours at 823.

LUKE McMILLIN – 1 #103  — (First in and ninth overall four-wheel McMillin shared driving with Justin Smith.) — To win the Tecate SCORE Baja in my rookie year, I couldn’t dream of that, especially the SCORE Baja 1000 La Paz Unreal, I think I’m dreaming now. I started the car and went to mile 350 and we got to San Felipe and we had about a lead there.

That is I decided to back it off and go for the class win and not try and the trucks. The whups were nasty. I got it to Justin (Smith) a 16-minute lead and he brought it to me with an hour lead. 100 miles before the finish we had a when the car just shut It was the wiring to the fuel pump.

From the outside in, this was a big accomplishment for KTM,  for and the team. We got the bike to the finish no major issues besides rider issues. Quinn went down, and from we know has a broken femur. He was and just in a little pain but It was obviously a big hit to the team.

Ivan did a job starting and we had a little technical early on and we fell back a bit in the dust.  It’s a long and we didn’t give up anywhere. I’m not at all. I’m very happy to be right here in second in my first Tecate SCORE 1000.

I have no regrets and was a good race for us. Honda a better program to the table and we are to go home and do our homework. CO-RIDER RAMIREZ said: The first went pretty good but I was a bit in the dust. I relaxed a little I was kind of tight. I gave the to Mike Brown being overall.

I can’t say enough about my Ricky and Shane for doing a job keeping the bike together and us here. All the elements get different at Of course you can’t see as well and you’ve got the fog.
