Q75D & Los Chakas SF250 Race Report

21a-3The 27th annual San Felipe 250 took place Saturday, March 9th with more entries from various countries in this year than the last few years. The combined team of Quad75Dezert and Los Chakas battled in 4th all day long, but finished the day in 5th after some confusion near the finish. After the stressful pre-race preparations, the team was less than happy with 5th but content with a finish without penalties and is now looking towards the Baja 500 in June.

Riders Juan Sanchez, Angel Sanchez, Jenaro Ibarra, Santos Perez and Brandon Brown were to compete in this year’s 250, however just before he was supposed to leave Brandon was in a training accident that left him with two broken ribs and other injuries. Then, while pre-running, Santos Perez encountered a chase truck coming backwards on the course. In his attempt to avoid the oncoming vehicle Santos crashed and broke his collarbone, just days before the race. It was a rocky start to 2013, but the team did not give up and replacement rider Julio Gomez was able to step in, however without enough time for pre-running.

Quad75Dezert Race Report

From left to right: Eric Marquez, Stefano Caputo, Mario Diaz, Lipy Velez, Brandon Brown, & Manlio Diaz.

Baja is never without trials and tribulations, and this year’s season was no exception for the Quad75Dezert team. The pinnacle of challenges came just 5 days before the team’s scheduled departure when the race bike suffered a catastrophic failure while testing and 4/5ths of the team decided they didn’t want to race the 45th Anniversary Baja 1000, leaving their contention for the championship all but lost completely. 3 days before the race was to begin, Brandon Brown teamed up with Felipe Velez and the Colin’s Motorsports Team and left for Mexico, intending to see the season through, finish what his team started, and hopefully come out on top of the Pro Quad Class even if the odds were against it.

On Assignment – Baja 1000

When you read this post, I’ll be frantically prepping for the Baja 1000, which is tomorrow. This year’s race, over 1000 miles of brutal terrain made more-so by Hurricane Paul, starts tomorrow at 6 am in Ensenada, and goes all the way to La Paz. So far I’ve driven from Hermiston, Or, to Vancouver, to Ensenada, to Ojos Negros, through to Constitucion, pre-ran (which requires driving back and forth a lot from Constitucion to La Paz several times) and back up to Ensenada where we are currently stuffing the trucks with things we’ll need on race day, and bracing ourselves for the drive back down to La Paz. Oh yeah, and after the race we get to drive La Paz all the way back up to Hermiston. We don’t stop to sleep, we just rotate drivers.

Vegas to Reno – Chase 1, part 1.

We left in the morning, wound our way through Central Oregon and down into Nevada on 93. After a few pit stops and food breaks, we made it to Indian Springs about 11:30pm. Brandon and I thought we were behind the other two trucks, but a thunderstorm waylaid our group several miles behind us. After talking to them, we decided they could finish the drive the next day instead of driving all night and being haggard all day. Usually when we get to Mexico, we’ve been driving for 30 hours and then we have to unload, reload, get organized, finish pre-runner prep give everyone a game plan and then go through with it. Vegas to Reno is much, much simpler. Brandon and I got a single room on the bottom floor from the casino in the little town. On a normal day both of us would be a little sketched out by our surroundings. The casino was old, mostly empty, and had none of the “luxury” you find in casinos even in the NW. This was not reassuring for the hotel room we were about to see. After parking the truck inches from our bedroom window, just in case anything were to go down, we enter the hotel room. This hotel was $20 a night. I know what you are imagining. But it was clean, even if a little old, and it makes some of the places we’ve been in in Mexico look like a 5 star hotel. Running water, working toilet, air conditioning, clean sheets, minimal amount of gnarly bugs. Yup, we were in a palace by those standards. We rested well and then got up early to head to the airport.

On Assignment!

My goal this year is to attend more races, and this is the first race of MY season (the next one will be the opener of QXNW). I’m heading south today on assignment for the Quad75Dezert team. The San Felipe 250 is next weekend and the competition is always stacked. San Felipe is a nice little town waiting for an awful resort to invade it. It’s warm, quiet, and has the best fish and shrimp tacos you have ever tasted, plus it’s on the Sea of Cortez.
