Quad75Dezert is Prepped and Ready for the Baja 500
Brandon Brown Prepares for 2012 Baja 500
05.22.12 Coming off some bad luck at the San Felipe 250, the team is prepped and ready to begin pre-running in Mexico this week, prior to the race, which takes place June 1, 2, & 3. Riders Jorie Williams, Kenny Sanford, Jamie Kirkpatrick, Richie Brown, and Brandon Brown will be competing this year on a course that is nearly identical to last year's Baja 500. Competing in Pro ATV class 25, the field is stacked once again with teams consisting of current and former Baja champions and SCORE racing veterans like Josh Frederick, Mike Cafro, and Greg Row. Leaving 2nd off the line behind Josh Frederick's team, Quad75Dezert will be running the 3A plate.
"We're sitting fifth in points right now after we had bike problems at the last race," Brandon Brown commented, "but we have been training and Kenny [Sanford] has put together another immaculate bike for this race, so we are feeling good about this race. We tested the bike a few weekends ago and it's works amazingly well with the Teixeira and Fox Shox combination. Just like before every SCORE race, we are really excited to go out there and go racing!"
New for this race, both ATV and Motorcycle classes have the option of running an IRC tracker. Currently these classes have a recording device to make sure riders are on the course and do not miss any checkpoints along the route. The trackers will allow SCORE to see where riders are located in real-time, just like they can currently do with the car and truck classes. This is added safety for riders as the trackers have a manual alert button, and it is also beneficial for spectators as now the weatherman and others can stream the results and locations of bikes and quads on the course reducing the number of pit crews and fans wondering where their team is located on the 450 mile course.
The 44th Annual Baja 500 starts and finishes in Ensenada, Mexico with approximately 450 miles of unique and challenging Mexican terrain and nearly 300 entries. You can find more information, photos, video and more at Quad75.com or Facebook.com/Quad75Dezert
