“Wow, two years in a row! My bike ran great. I can’t thank my team enough. I don’t know what it is – I feel really good out here in San Felipe. It’s where I got my first SCORE win and I feel very confident here. I owe it all to the JCR/Honda program, Pit Crews, TJ, my partner Jeff “OX” Kargola, Eric Siraton, and most of all Johnny Campbell. Thanks very much! I love Baja”. — Colton Udall
