Sometimes life takes you by surprise, and brings you to a place you hadn’t expected. Then once you find yourself there you enjoy it so much that you just keep coming back to it. That’s how we feel about Baja and the Score San Felipe 250 offroad race.
I was first introduced to San Felipe after Ryan and his friend Jeff watched the epic film Dust to Glory.
That movie sparked a fire in them and a desire to experience the thrill of offroad racing. They went to Baja to watch the Score Baja 1000 and they were hooked. It wasn’t long before Ryan was preparing to race the San Felipe 250 and bringing the whole family down to San Felipe for fun and adventure, to pre-run the race course and prepare for the big event.
This place has a spirit and energy that just brings you in and envelops you.
For me I think it’s a combination of things. The high energy of offroad racing,
the crowds of people coming together to enjoy a common interest,
the spirited music and festive atmosphere,
spending time with great friends we see only a couple times a year,
waking up to beautiful sunrises on long expanses of beach that seem to go on forever,
delicious food that makes your taste buds tingle
and lets not forget the margaritas!
Until next time San Felipe…Cheers!
