    I read last night that Ramsey El Wardani aka Baja_Blazer died on his way home to Cabo, from natural causes.
    I am eternally grateful that after learning on this website that I was going to race in San Felipe, Mx, he reached out to help me. He set me up with a place to stay, then worked a Baja fix that allowed me to finish the race.
    For the next four years I prepped my Blazer in El Cajon with his input, and was able to get a couple of Baja 1000 finishes.
    There may be better known names, but few could match Ramsey's knowledge or kindness.

    That is terrible news!
    May he Rest In Peace.
    I never got a chance to meet him but I am a huge fan of his contributions to the community, he was always an out of the box thinker. Always had good advice and was an all around nice guy.

    Damn...

    His 14BFF is under my pickup, and we hung out in Baja during the 1000 a few times. Awesome dude, and as friendly as they come.
