Well, the car is ready, the suits are ready…if I could just pack then *I* would be ready! I leave tomorrow evening and will spend the night in San Diego. One of my sponsors, The Waterfront Tavern, is putting me up in their condo a block away from the roller coaster in Mission Beach. Unfortunately, I’ll only be there for 8 hours. Dad and I will be leaving the next morning at 6am to get to his place in San Felipe. There I will get my first look at our BRAND NEW 2180 dual carb motor and new transmission. Awwwww yeah!
After a quick sleep, we’ll be towing our Hot Tamale back up to Mexicali for registration, contingency, and of course, a party with our pals. Early morning of May 5th we’ll start Day One, driving back through San Felipe to Bay of Los Angeles. We’ll be staying with our pals at Villa Vitta.
Day Two will start at 8am at “South of town on Dirt Road”. What’s hilarious is that I know exactly where they are talking about! The second day will take us through San Ignacio, land of 1000′s of Palm Trees and we’ll end at Loreto. That night we get a special party at Del Borracho Saloon, sponsored by Team Lucky Sperm, YT Motorsports, and Team Courage.
But we can’t party too hard, because Day Three starts at 7am in a mad dash to the finish line in La Paz and another fun evening spent with friends, new and old.
The morning of May 8th will bring the awards ceremony and then Dad and I get the rest of the day and most of Monday to play in La Paz….or maybe I can convince him to buzz on out to Cabo? At any rate, I fly from La Paz to LA on May 9th, then red eye back to DC to be at work on May 10th.
I’ll be live tweeting the whole damn thing, when I can get a signal, using the #NORRA1000 hashtag, so be sure to follow me @MMMotorsports. You can also Like me on Facebook and stay updated there as well. We’ll have three Go Pro cameras on the car, so we should get some pretty sweet video.
That’s all from stateside…I’ll see you in the baja.
