one of the toughest races in the history of BAJA
1000, and when the dust settled, 9A Team of Adolfo
Arellano, Wayne Matlock, Wes Miller, Roberto Villalovos
were the top finishing ATV team finished 13th
overall, and they wrapped up the Class 25 Championship.

BAJA 1000 & the SCORE Championship
Sadly, one of the top off-road motorcycle racers,
Kurt Caselli, lost his life after a serious wreck
in the final stretch of the BAJA 1000, and our
thoughts and prayers go out to Caselli’s family
along with the KTM team.
In the Class 25, the battle early on was between
the 9A Adolfo Arellano and the 10A Javier Robles,
but Robles ran into engine issues in the silt
beds and bent a rear shock, which took them out
of the running while the Arellano's team ran away
with the win, which Wayne Matlock described as
the toughest BAJA 1000 course ever.
The 109a Juan Dominguez Team claimed the Class
24 Win and was the third overall ATV to finish
UXC Racing’s Michael Swift scored the Ironman

U2 Class Championship.
There was an impressive 18 entries in the SXS
Class 19, and Holz / Coastal Racing’s Scott Kiger
claimed the BAJA 1000 win in his first attempt
with his teammates, Mark Holz and RJ Anderson.
The Jagged X Team finished in the second spot,
which was enough to secure the SCORE Championship

Jagged X Polaris RZR XP 900 to the finish line
for the Matt Parks 1932 SxS. Rounding out the
