Baja 500 Penalties Busting Chops

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

Are the JCR Honda team members a group of super tacticians or just a bunch of cheaters? With the new rule changes, they're both, unfortunately.
The official result sheets are changing rapidly with the enforcing of rule infraction penalties. SCORE-International is laying a heavy hand on the competitors who did not abide by the course deviation and speed limits. Class 22 (Pro Motorcycles) saw a big shake-up with original winners Kendall Norman, Tim Weigand and Quinn Cody getting slapped down to eighth and the other Factory Honda JCR squad of Colton Udall and Jeff Kargola slipping from second to third. Cameron Corfman and his 8x teammates, Craig Smith and Kyle Corfman, reaped the benefits and took the class victory on their Beta 450 RR.

The overall results have yet to be sorted out. For now here’s a link to the official results that are currently available.

Baja racing was once about getting from Point A to Point B in the least amount of time with basically an anything goes policy. That’s all changed now and creative course selection is no longer a viable part of race strategy – now it’s cheating!

Here’s the original, and now defunct article on the 2009 Baja 500 Results.

Well,it's about time, when helicopters and deep pockets don't secure you a win. Now the fast guys are fast, but as far as the old days, getting from point a to b. It's a lot easier to do so when you have eyes in the sky. Congrats to all the winners ...

The class 21 winners, Bill Boyer/Nicholas Blais/Rudy Iribe/Donnie De Arman, were 1st overall motorcycle, as well as 1st class 21. we stayed under 60 on the highways and stayed on course to win with no penalties,even after a bad pit that cost us 4 or 5 minutes. Thanks to Stuart Goggins and Nicholas Blais for having an awesome crf450x.
