We did it. El Martillo Racing won the Evolution Unlimited Buggy finishing the 2019 Mexican 1000 Rally by NORRA in 17 hours 36 minutes and 17 seconds to be also in the Top 5 overall of a very fun race across the Baja Peninsula.
Matt was in charge of driving the Guaycura race car to the victory and finish line in San Jose del Cabo, where all the family and friends of the team were waiting for the #153 car to get the checkers flag.
After crossing the finish line, Matt pointed that in a race like this one is always a win to get to the end with the car in one piece, with the team safe and sound and if you get a podium, even better. Also mentioned how important the preparation of the car before the race is, as well as night after night, giving all the credit to Nico Ambriz, who set the car to have a great race finishing without having to stop for repairs at any moment of the 5 days race.
At the awards, Matt thanked Toyo Tires and Case IH for the sponsorship and also thanked the mechanics crew, Nico, Ron, Angel for their effort and of course Rody Amaya who did a tremendous job for the team to achieve the victory.
One happy team with the victory and a lot of fun.
Thanks to all our followers and fans along the peninsula, you rule!
