Right about the time my daughter came on the radio and said “Hi daddy! Good job daddy! Go win!” I told her back “I’m going to try sweetie!” (No, she wasn’t in the helicopter, haha!) Something clicked in my mind, and after talking to her it really put into perspective the situation we were in and that no matter what, we were having a great race and it was time to go for the win. #baja500
PSA! Don’t stand on the outside of corners unless, of course, you prefer dirt/rock showers. And for those wondering, yes I did see this guy showing me his full moon at the #Baja500. The truck stepped out through the Cattle Guard and we have no choice but to hit the throttle to straighten the rear end of the truck out (no pun intended 😂🤣). And yes I did reach out to both of them on DM to say I’m sorry, but at the same time in these two instances I was 20ish miles from the finish and running very hard to try to win the race. Gotta love Baja Racing!!!
And now it is officially, official. WE WON THE 2019 BAJA 500! Words can’t describe the feeling of winning one of these big races. There is so much energy and effort that WE put into trying to win a race. And now having won two of these races back to back is a true testament to how strong our entire team is right now. A huge nod of gratitude to all of my partners, @redbull@toyotires@kmcwheels@rigidindustries@fox@gopro; without your brands’ support none of this would be possible. Without the love and support of my family, I wouldn’t be anything close to the person I am today. THANK YOU to my family (Wife, Tara, Kids Harper and Hudson, my mom, dad, brother and sister) for always supporting me no matter win or lose. (Side note- that’s my daughter blowing me kisses during our pit stop and I was in the truck blowing kisses back to her!) To my teammates, you guys are badass and handled the pits like true bosses and for that I say thank you! The fans of off-road racing and of Baja, you guys are the best! And last but not least to the haters... THANK YOU! You continually push me and give me that extra edge to drive even harder and more precise than I even believe I’m capable of. Now onto testing the new AWD TT all summer and maybe making an appearance at a race before the @scoreinternational Lucerna 400 in September!
We did it again! Unofficially the Overall Winners of the @scoreinternational#Baja500! We had an amazing run today, and had an epic battle with my cousin @lukemcmillin83 . That’s 2 in a row for us and our team, and let me tell you first hand these don’t come easy. It’s a huge effort from our whole team, the pit crews, the chase teams, my family, it’s a huge effort by all of us to try to win these races. And of course we couldn’t do it without @redbull@toyotires@kmcwheels@rigidindustries@fox@gopro!
