2009 Chihuahua Express

Yesterday was the qualifying stage at the 2009 Chihuahua Express and although I was stuck in a snowstorm in Denver with a cancelled flight, Dyana Marlett did a great job of keeping me updated. Thanks, Dy!

Todd and Geezer did well on the track and according to Dy, "Good news! Our friends got their cars across the border and arrived @ the hotel t'night! Got trapped in the political fighting between the US and Mex truck drivers...Stig gridded first, the Mex dudes second, Mockett third and Lars 6th....things will sort themselves out manana for sure!"

I'm headed for the airport now and hoping to get to Chihuahua by tonight to join the fun.

Headed to the Chihuahua Express

In less than 2 weeks we'll be racing through the Copper Canyon in Mexico for the 2009 Chihuahua Express. The Landon/Stewart team from last year's Pike's Peak International Hill Climb will ride again in Moriah.

I'm very excited to experience another beautiful state of Mexico and all of our crazy friends that go along with vintage racing.
