JCR Honda triumphs at SCORE Baja 1000 off-road race

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 27, 2010

The big winner at the SCORE Baja 1000 off-road race is American Honda as its JCR Honda team beat more than 300 entries from 19 countries and got a total of 21 overall wins. Famous for having the harshest terrain in the world, this course measures 1,061 miles (1,708 km) and it takes riders through Baja Peninsula from Ensenada, Baja California, to La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico.

The JCR Honda team averaged 55 mph (89 km/h). This is a drop from projections as riders Kendall Norman and Quinn Cody had to adopt an aggressive strategy due to a 100 mile section of dense fog.

Both racers did very well and had only one flat tire in the entire course, recording a finish time of 19:20. Norman said that the fog was very bad and really tested him as he did everything just to keep the bike moving.

CR Honda race support also backed a few class winning teams, including: Class 21, Class 30, Class 40, Class 50, Class 60 and Class 24, resulting to a total of 7 class wins for Honda. All these accomplishments are evidence of JCR Honda Pit Program's speed and dependability.

JCR Honda’s John Campbell said that this race is the “culmination of an entire years worth of work.” He expressed his pride at what Kendall Norman and Quinn Cody have achieved as they “executed a flawless plan.”

He also took the opportunity to thank those who made it possible, namely: the pit crews, the JCR staff, mechanics, racers and families. He proceeded to also thank the team sponsors (American Honda, Affliction clothing, Lucas Oil, Dunlop Tires, Pro Circuit, etc.) because of their products that made it possible to “go wide open Off-Road for over 1000 miles.”
