The Yokohama NORRA Mexican 1000 has classes for just about everything that burns fuel and throws dirt. Vehicles range from vintage race cars to state of the art Trophy Trucks, UTV’s, and motorcycles. There are even a pair of 1968 Vespa scooters entered. It follows a rally format with stages during the day, and stops overnight as the course travels from Ensenada, all the way to Cabo. There is plenty of challenging terrain, and high-speed driving, but the rally is mostly about having a great time. The overnight stops allow everyone to slow down, have some fun with their fellow competitors, and experience each unique town along the route. Maybe that’s why so many families enter every year. Wayne and Kristen Matlock will be racing each other in the stock Turbo UTV class in the same Yokohama Polaris RZR’s that they raced at the King of the Hammers. Their friendly rivalry amongst each other is just one that will be in the turbo class. Luke, and Dan McMillin are also entered; each racing their own Polaris RZR. Who will come out on top? It may be you. Last year’s winner in the Evolution Stock Turbo UTV class was Danny Gormican. The Yokohama NORRA Mexican 1000 has several UTV classes to choose from. Pit services are available as well as free repairs provided by Thefabschools and Miller Welding’s Official Repair Team.
