Matlock Racing, Quad75Dezert Win Classes at Baja 1000
Maxxis riders topped the podium in two Pro ATV classes at the grueling SCORE Baja 1000. Matlock Racing won the overall and Class 25, and Brandon Brown and Quad75Dezert won Class 24 in the race, held November 17-20 in Ensenada, Baja, Mexico. “Everyone rode smart all day long,” Wayne Matlock told SCORE of his winning run with fellow drivers Josh Caster and Wes Miller. “No mistakes, and we didn’t put a wrench on the bike – just gas-and-go. The course was rough, [but] that’s what happens when you combine the San Felipe 250 and the Baja 500 together.” The Matlock crew won the day, crossing the finish line with a 17-minute lead. Overcoming several challenges, Brown’s team came roaring behind to take second place overall and the top prize for Class 24. “We went back and forth with Matlock all day until a rock snuck up on Jamie Kirkpatrick and he wadded up the bike,” Brown told SCORE. “Luckily, it didn’t hurt anything, and he isn’t in too bad of a shape…We want to come back and keep on trying to win races. This was by far the roughest and nastiest course I’ve seen so far.”Both teams counted on Razr tires to take their respective class championships in 2011.Maxxis congratulates Wayne Matlock, Josh Caster and Wes Miller of Matlock Racing and Brandon Brown and Quad75Dezert on their victories and championships.
