2012 San Felipe 250 Post-Race Recap

Posted by Q75 admin on Friday Mar 16, 2012 Under 2012, Baja, News, San Felipe 250

Team Quad75Dezert conquers adversity and places 5th at the 44th Annual SCORE San Felipe 250. After a week of pre-running in Mexico and about 100 miles of testing and tuning on the race bike, the team woke early March 10th to race the San Felipe 250. After a solid week the team was feeling good about their sections and the course, however their race would be plagued with problems, the least severe being stray cactus injecting itself into riders, the most severe being a transmission failure that would leave the team struggling for top speed for most of the race.

44th Annual Baja 1000!

Posted by Q75 admin on Sunday Nov 6, 2011 Under 2011, Baja, News, Think Pink!

This week Team Quad75Dezert leaves for Mexico to race the 2011 Baja 1000.  This year’s race is about 700 miles, starting and ending in Ensenada, and comprised of most of the year’s San Felipe and Baja 500 courses. According to Score’s website, racers from more than 35 states and 15 countries have registered to participate in the oldest and most well-known desert race. Quad75Dezert will be running only 1 team for the Baja 1000, and were lucky enough to get the first starting position for Class 24. They are currently leading their class in points, and have won their class and the ATV overall at this year’s San Felipe 250 and Baja 500.

Brandon Brown, Kenny Sanford, Jorie Williams, Jamie Kirkpatrick, & Richie Brown will be racing on the S&S Motorsports prepped Honda 450R. ProCaliber.com was instrumental in getting a 2012 Honda and Kenny Sanford has worked hard in conjuction with Sean McHugh of TCS Motorsports to get the race bike ready. “At this point we have some small things left to do to the race bike. Adjust the lights, mount a few custom pieces, and double check everything,” Kenny said, “Right now we’re getting the pre-runners ready.” The Baja 1000 is tougher on everything from pre-runners, to riders, to chase vehicles, and logistics can become difficult as well. “I have a pretty good idea of what we’re going to do. It’s helpful having been down a few times before,” Brandon Brown explained, “and this year we have practically already raced the course. It will just be a matter of linking the two together and making sure that our riders’ fitness levels are up to speed and our chase drivers know where to be, what do to, and when to be there. I have a lot of confidence in our team because we are lucky to draw from a variety of different knowledgeable people. That’s one of our most valuable assets: the diversity of our support crew.” Read More

Help Quad75Dezert Support Breast Cancer Research!

Posted by Q75 admin on Wednesday Nov 2, 2011 Under 2011, News, Think Pink!

Breast cancer awareness month just came to a close on October 31st, but Quad75Dezert doesn’t have a big race to attend like the GNCC Ironman. So in honor of the amazing survivors the team has decided to put forth a fundraising effort on behalf of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. According to http://www.bcrfcure.org

In 2011, the American Cancer Society estimates that about 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among women in the United States, and that about 39,520 women will die from the disease.

At this time there are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer.

In men, 2,140 new cases were projected in the U.S. in 2011, with 450 deaths.

Breast cancer is something that hits close to home, affecting some of the team’s family and friends. Brandon Brown’s sister is a breast cancer survivor who is now recovering from a second surgery and will probably need another. “It’s devastating to the women that have to go through this, their families, and friends. We feel like we can raise money for a good cause, especially because the 1000 is a big race,” Brandon explained.

The goal is $100 for every hour of the race. Competitors have 32 hours to finish the nearly 700 mile course. “We would really like to raise more than that, but we think anything can help,” Brandon said, “We’ve got a lot of amazing people supporting us, so we are pretty confident that those same supporters will be as enthusiastic about supporting breast cancer research, making a difference by funding important research for a cure.”

Visit this link to contribute something today: http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/quad75dezert/2011baja1000

The team is currently less than two weeks away from leaving for the Baja 1000, and plan to continue efforts all throughout the 2012 season to raise money for cancer research. Please join them in making the awareness a 12 month project!

4 Weeks & Counting!!

Posted by Q75 admin on Tuesday Oct 11, 2011 Under 2011, Baja, News

Quick update on what the team is doing – We’re 4 weeks out from departure and we’re hurriedly working to get all our “ducks in a row” before the Baja 1000 next month! We’re excited as always, but a little overwhelmed at the amount of planning and work we need to get done in order to go, let alone the personal preparation the riders are doing to be physically and mentally in shape for 700+ miles of racing. We finally got our race bike, but a little late, which adds a lot of stress to the equation. We’re thankful to have the best mechanic around for desert racing! The drawing for the starting positions is Saturday the 15th. It’s all approaching VERY fast!

Post Weekend Recap

Posted by Q75 admin on Wednesday Aug 24, 2011 Under 2011, BITD, News, Other Racing

Quad75Dezert headed south to Las Vegas on August 17th for the 2011 BITD Vegas to Reno race, to be followed up by returning to the Northwest to race the Washougal round of WORCS. The team drew the first starting position off the Pro ATV line and left the start at approximately 6:10AM. Jorie Williams started the race and would ride for the first two pits and then switch with Brandon Brown at approximately 90 miles into the event. The two riders would then rotate on and off the bike for the next 460 miles until the finish line while the chase vehicles alternated pit stops. Unfortunately, at approximately race mile 150 the team was met with a mechanical failure and their race would be ended early. “For some reason we all really want to win this race,” Brandon said, “We screwed up and didn’t get to the second pit in time for Jorie who had to get gas from another team. He lost his lead while trying to get fuel and fell back as far as fourth before continuing.” Jorie left the second pit with determination and passed the riders ahead of him to put him into second place coming into the third pit where Brandon got on the bike.

Great Story By a Fellow Baja Racer!

Posted by quad75 on Wednesday Jun 29, 2011 Under News

We all have many things in common but Desert Racing and Off-Road trips has been a passion and bond for us throughout: we lived for the camp fire camaraderie, great people in this sport, and pushing the limits of man, machine, vs. the terrains of Baja..

This was sent to Quad75.com after the 500. It comes from James Woodford, and it’s his account of Ironmanning the San Felipe 250 this year in Class 25. Coupled with some great photos, James tells us about his experience in honor of a fallen friend. James exemplifies why desert racers do what we do – for the love of racing! He overcame some adversity, but we’re not going to spoil it for you, you’ll just have to read his article.

No matter how sore I was, how hard it was, how many hours it took to finish the race, or how many long nights I put into prepping the bike before the race. It was all worth it! To Honor Spencer, to accomplish our goals, no one can ever take that away from me! It wasn’t just a desert race. It was a life changing event!

James Woodard’s SF250 Story

I’m sure Spencer is proud James!
