Fines Double Racing Team Claims Victory in Mexico at Score San Felipe Baja 250
Arctic Cat Thundercat 1000 Takes The Checkered Flag As First Winner Of The Inaugural Utility Class By Jeff Henson. - 3/31/2009March 24, 2009- Ask anyone who's ever raced all three of the SCORE Baja 1000 Series races which one is the toughest, and you'll likely get the reply, "Definitely the San Felipe Baja 250!" It's the shortest of the three SCORE Baja racecourses at approximately 250 miles, but it's laden with giant whoop-de-doos from start to finish. Finding a section of racecourse to relax and shake the cramping out of your fingers is a rarity in this race-especially when you're racing a 700-plus-pound 4x4 ATV. "We had no major issues throughout the day and the Thundercat ran strong and flawless from start to finish," said team captain Reid Rutherford. Rutherford races the Thundercat with teammates Benn Vernadakis and Tony Valerio, as well as a fleet of chase vehicles and a pit crew that Rutherford claims the team couldn't succeed without.
