Hey all you My Life at Speed-ers, I finally have a few, new pics from Day 2. I was behind the wheel and started the 2nd stage, and the 555 Bandito Brothers Buggy was very quick; and we made up quite a bit of time. This is a really fun car.
After our problems on Day 1, the guys worked until 4:30am back at the shop and then drove until 4pm to get to us. Long day for all of us. You know you have great friends when they stop whatever they are doing, just to help out. You know our buddy, Jet Boat Billy – well, Jet Boat Billy got us a motor from his company, Picture Car Warehouse, and had his guys drive it to Mexico for us. That is a good buddy for sure. Thanks man!
After the new motor showed up in the middle of the Mexican desert, our crew from ES Motorsports worked all night to get us ready to race for Day 2, which started at San Ignacio.
This whole adventure is pretty cool. Mouse and I have decided to pursue winning the overall in the Baja 1000 and then Dakar in the next five years. Awesome! I’ll send the next update as soon as I can. – GT
