Well, I’m not going to take this line on race day! This is why we prerun. Thankfully a lot of locals helped us. In the end we needed a tractor to get this 6400 pound beast out of the mud! I’m always amazed and grateful for all the fans in Baja! #baja500

Looks like the top 4 Trophy Trucks are past Mike's Sky Rancho. Andy McMillin and other McMillins are the front three and Cameron in #4. Bryce Menzies and Robby Gordon are the next two, north of Mike's.

You know it.
I saw some Pala last night.
Wow!
I never ride the National track there.
Jumps too big, to scary, and hard to launch from.
Ofcourse Eli and the boys make it look easy. It think to key is to ride superhuman fast on that track. His dad helped him with that part.
My best bud, ended his moto career on that track. With a helicopter ride...
We call that " doing it wrong" in the motocross biz...

Check out Instagram. The helicopter can barely keep up with Cameron...

Just had a look and I see Andy and a couple of other McMillins finished. Robby Gordon and Cameron are still on their way towards the finish.

Thanks Willard, that's Cameron, sharing the scoop on his damaged lines at Camalu south Pemex.

Sorry to hear about it Cameron and crew. The truck was flying in the video on Instagram.

My favorite Pemex on my way out of town.
I like the car in the video but couldn't figure out what it was.
Orange mirrors:coolup:

Best rodeside report.

Watching 450 Moto2 now.
Beautiful track. Perfect moisture. But deep ruts a little difficult.
But perfect Motocross.
Can't wait for the gate drop.

Cause "when the gate drops... the BS stops!:D

I love it when Baja racing and Motocross are the same weekend.

This will result in a new motocross bike and spending money on my truck.

Is Baja 500 on tv anytime soon.
Seems cool because it's more of a sprint.
Pushing the trucks harder takes it's toll...

The finish of Baja 500.

This is a link.
Not sure how to make it live.

I love that.
It was soo moto!
Tough to pick a bike right now. I always go Japanese bike...
Tomac is an absolute machine now. A well oil, well trained machine.
I love Ken's fling the bike forward style... fun to watch.
So many talented riders now.
And those bikes!

Lots of cool Baja 500 vids and pics on Instagram.
The Mcmillian trucks didn't get a scratch. They look perfect.
