    Stephen and James are not with Raffo Racing anymore.

    They are with a protruck team with trucks 240 and 250.

    James has 6 pit areas he has to try to hit today.
    Stephen is set as an alternate codriver at this point. He has no idea if he will get in the truck for the race or not.
    Trophy trucks off the line on schedule at 9:30, Herbst drew the first starting position.

    It will be quite a while before the link that JMS posted has updated pit results.

    I might be talking to James today so I will keep everyone updated with what I know. But, Most of this race is going to happen in the dark when I am not around the computer.

    No news at this point. The trucks should be somewhere between race mile 90 and 210 at this point. I am supposed to get a call when the chase trucks are going through San Felipe. That should be two or so more hours.
    I have been listening to the weatherman and have not heard anything about the trucks on his radio so all must be going as planned.

    The trophy trucks are south of San Felipe at this point and it sounds like several ar broken and things are heating up to be a good race. San Felipe is at race mile 245+/-.

    Bikes are at around race mile 420 or so.

    The race this year is 709 miles.

    BFG pit to pit reporting is very slow and somewhat inaccurate.

    Sounds like the locals are up to their usual no good deads and set a booby trap on Puartas Citas road. A 5' deep hole has been dug in the road and has already taken out 1 car.

    1st bike across finish line at 9:20 local time.

    JMS at that time that info is correct.

    Sounds like lots of cars and trucks going out between race mile 100 and 200. From what I am reading on race-dezert that might be the rough and tough section of the course.

    Jesse James in the Monster garage trophy truck is out at RM 218+/-. Everybody on Race Dezert is wondering if he isgoing to trash the truck or blow it up :eek1: :haha:
