CODE MexLog 300 Highlights!

What a weekend full of offroad, The Rebelle Rally, SNORE, the UTVWorld Championship and CODE Offroad with the MexLog 300, one of the biggest ‘local’ races in Baja. Nearly 150 teams took the green flag this past saturday in the dry lake bed called “Laguna Salada”, CODE’s favorite playground.

The race consisted in 3-laps of 85 miles of grueling Baja desert full of heavy sand, whoops, jumps and full flat out sections that tested the drivers and their machines to the max. code mex

And the big story of the day is #1088 of Caleb and Cameron Sanden who with an average speed of 58.37mi/hr took not just the win in their Class10 category but also the race overall beating the unlimited guys with a 17 minute lead, what a race the Sanden’s did. Speaking of the unlimited category that at CODE are simply called ‘Class 1’, #255 Brad Vicic and #166 Oraway Racing had quite a duel all day long finishing with only 30 seconds in between each other taking the 1-2 respectively, only those two teams completed the full course.
