El Jefe came in at 7th in class (Turismo Produccion "TP") and 65th overall.

From Vance III:
"We did the short (6 km) time trial this morning, car ran great. Everyone´s car seems to be running rich in the hot, moist, dense air here. didn´t hear of any accidents. We did it in 2:36, so we should place in our regular position for tomorrow.
Lots of rookies this year.

Emilio from Univision with his three Porsche 911s are not here. He bought Telcel so he can´t compete in LCP with Telmex as a sponsor!

Dr. Christian and Dan in the Original Pan Am Lincoln are back after sitting out a couple of years.  Gregorys brought a Nova that they´ve raced in Chihuahua and are excited to be in Historic C."

Please offer a good caption for this one besides Tres Amigos! Rene, Bimbo, Geezer. I'm just thinking that Geezer needs some below the knee shorts....
