Nazca, Peru – After facing a few obstacles during the first couple of stages in this year’s Dakar Rally, Robby Gordon and the SPEED Energy / Toyo Tires / MAPEI team bounced back with a podium finish in Stage 3.

Stage 3 took competitors from Pisco to Nazca for a 243KM Special through some of the Rally’s toughest dunes. Dunes that would be suitable for Robby Gordon and his HUMMER. Starting in 13th position today, Gordon quickly picked off his fellow competitors one by one. By KM29, he was already in the top-5 moving his way to the top. At KM60, he quickly gained two spots, moving to third place and only one minute and 46 seconds behind the stage leader. At KM100, Gordon would gain another position and his last for the day. He went on to finish second, only one minute and 18 seconds behind the stage winner. What Gordon seeks is still an overall win even if he is down 46 minutes to the leader, Stephane Peterhansel. He knows that Peterhansel stands in his way, making it imperative for Gordon to perfect every day with few mistakes.

The final round of the AMA Big 6 series was held this past weekend at Pala MX. The laps were hovering in the 9 min range for the pros. The course consisted of some great MX track sections and high speed hard packed Off-Road sections. Timmy holeshot the race, he and Colton Udall had a good moto going for the final 45 min race finishing a JCR/Honda 1-2 for the moto. Over the 2012 season Timmy and Colton split time on Eric Siraton prepped Honda CRF450R’s and X’s. Timmy won 5 of the 8 rounds and secured his AMA D-37 Big 6 championship by winning the final moto of the year.

“It was great to finish up the 2012 Big 6 series with a Championship following up our recent Baja 1000 Championship. I’m looking forward to next weekends Johnny Campbell Christmas Classic and then a few weeks off for some much needed Family time. The D-37 crews did an amazing job putting together all 8 rounds of the series. The tracks were always prepped and watered well. The Big 6 community is the backbone of Off-Road racing and the 2013 season looks to be the best yet. I want to thank Eric Siraton for always going above and beyond, Johnny Campbell for his support all year, John Parkinson for having my back all year, my wife and kids for always supporting me and my teammate Colton Udall for pushing me to be the best I can be.” — Timmy Weigand

Torrance, CA: After fending off numerous challenges from other motorcycle teams during the 45th running of the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, the Johnny Campbell Racing (JCR) Honda team and their Honda CRF450X pulled out a decisive lead and sailed into La Paz to win the race with a margin of more than an hour, and lock up the 2012 SCORE 1X championship. It was a fitting tribute to Honda’s 50th Baja anniversary, stretching back to the inaugural ride from Tijuana to La Paz undertaken by Dave Ekins and Bill Robertson to promote Honda’s CL72 Scrambler in 1962.

After leading for more than 970 miles, the JCR team’s finishing time totaled 20:09:30 for an average speed of 55.64 mph. The success of JCR Honda team riders Colton Udall, Timmy Weigand and David Kamo extended the Honda win streak in the Baja 1000 to 16 consecutive victories and 23 overall motorcycle wins. Equally impressive, nine out of the top 10 finishing teams this year in the motorcycle division chose to ride a Honda CRF450X.

Johnny Campbell checked in after day one of the six-day 1300-mile Morocco Rally to let us know Honda took the stage 1 victory for the HRC Rally team in dominating fashion. Enthusiasts the world over have been longing for Honda to return to Rally racing and now they have something to cheer about. Honda is back and the engineers at HRC have built the ultimate Rally bike.

“The track today was very fast, let’s say 90% very fast track and 10% off track in the dunes,” Campbell said. “There was a lot of rocks and dust but in general it was ok. This is the first major rally race I have competed in since 2001 so it takes me a little time to get into the race rhythm again, in terms of speed and intensity, while physically I’m ok. I made some navigation mistakes and I lost 10 minutes before arriving at the service. Then I regrouped and finished 16th. The CRF 450 Rally is working really well, it has strong power and I look forward to the next stage.”
