Editor’s Note: Racer Wayne Matlock provided this first-hand account of the team’s race for this year’s 2015 SCORE Baja 500.

Well that was fun! I have been dreaming of racing Baja in a car for a long time. I know some of you are thinking, you dreamed of racing a UTV and not a class 1 car or a trophy truck? But yeah I actually love driving the UTV and have been working hard to make it happen for some time now. In order to keep this somewhat short enough to keep the attention span of most of my friends (myself included) I will leave out my pre-running story and go straight to the race.
