Now THAT's What I Call Racin!
Congratulations to Kevin Jones and what simply put is an OUTSTANDING performance and a second place finish! In retrospect one can only wonder how things may have ended up had his awesome navigator Mark Williams been there. Kevin may not know it yet but he wasn't alone as far as I'm concerned since all of us from Team California's Best Racing as well as fellow La Carrera teams were riding with him today! For those of you who don't already know, Kevin has never run the dirt type of rally before let alone up what looks like a million mile drop-off let alone without a navigator which by the way the first place car had.
While I'm writing this two more cars have gone off and DNF. Don't think this race is a simple run up a hill. Far from it. And don't forget, not every entry even made it to the starting gate so there is a lot to be said about the car as well as the driver.
Kevin, thanks for keeping me young Bro.
