(San Jose Del Cabo, Baja California): The final stages of the NORRA Mexican 1000 were not merely a formality. Plenty of challenging terrain was in store for competitors as they made their way down the coast from La Paz to the finish in San Jose Del Cabo. Some pulled under the NORRA banner at the finish with hardly a scratch. Others limped in, dirty, broken and barely running. Most notable in its absence was the #72 Trophy Truck of Robert Acer. Acer’s V-drive gave out during the first special stage, leaving him miles from the finish line. Rear engine trucks have the back end of the engine pointing forward. The V-drive redirects the drive shaft back to the rear axle. Without it, the truck doesn’t move. The NORRA Mexican 1000 is the happiest race on earth but it’s also an extremely challenging test of endurance.
