We can all watch the progress of Highmaintenance at the Baja 500 TODAY online at www.racetheworld.net (http://www.racetheworld.net). She's in truck #1705. They want to beat the Fat City team in #1790, and I think there is a beer bet involved. :D BTW - the guys in the 1790 are Alloy USA sponsored and Ron Strobaugh himself is driving (he owns Alloy USA/Precision Gear) so Cara and Mike gotta win!!!

Instructions to watch online: scroll down on the home page and click on Baja 500 and it will load a new screen. Click on Class 17 and check mark 1705 and 1790.

GET IT Cara and Mike!!!

:beer:

If you go to the site and listen to the weather man it sounds like there is a big pile up because some crashed. :shrug: The weather man guy is pretty funny to listen to :D

It looks like Shaffer and Mama are stuck in the huge traffic jam at MM212. They have mentioned on weatherman that there is a huge traffic jam and no one can get around.

They've been sitting there for quite a while.

They didn't move for a long time, but they are hitting the beach now.

I'm thinking Shaffer pulled over to wait for the sunrise, so he could take her on a nice sunrise beach cruise :flipoff2:

I haven't heard anything. Mike has 2 Satellite phones, but I'm not sure if he has one with him or what. I'm guessing that they will call Jackrabbit before me on anything.

The second half of the race the team from Vegas took over the 1705 car. Their current position is on Hwy 1 so I'm gussing its on a trailer and headed to Ensenada. Right where there at currently is outside of Santo Tomas and there is a security check point there that gets REALLY backed up.

Ever since they hit check 3 they have been stop and go, mostly stop. Just in the last our or so it looks like they skipped the beach and hit the highway.

I just got off the phone with Cara and they just landed in Denver. Both her an Loopi have some GREAT stories to tell!!! She said she's still sore, but still kickin, and that she had a great time with Mike Shaffer. Better watch out Jackrabbit, she may be hooked and you think we have an expensive hobbie now.....:flipoff2:

If you go next year you will be up against Marc - Big E - Me and our 1975 Jeep waggy with the Corona girls navigating. Oh and opening the Coronas! :D
It wont be the cutting edge of Baja rigs you can bet it will be fast as hell between P Stops!

Trudie and I were glad to help out, I know you will do the same for us "Next Week" when we buy our new rig! :flipoff2:

We are happy you and Loopie are home and hope it exceeded your dreams.
