LAST YEARS WINNER ROBBY GORDON
ROBBY INTERVIEWED BY NBC BEFORE THE RACE
Defending race winner Robby Gordon of Charlotte, N.C., charged back from early problems with the No. 71 Chevy CK1500 to place third in the SCORE Trophy Truck category and fifth overall among four-wheel vehicles. Gordon had to run an early portion of the course in the dark with just a handheld portable lamp for vision. "Just when you thought you couldn't top the unusual in Baja, we topped it," said Gordon, whose second driver was Dale Ebberts, Canyon Lake, Calif. "When we stopped at the first pit stop, the crew (part of the Nextel Cup crew) thought we didn't need lights in the next section. They were wrong. We had to borrow a portable lamp to see. We used a handheld portable lamp through that section (early in the race). By the time we got through that section, we were way back with the Class 10 car. You talk about giving one way, that's what we did today."

In spite of the dangers, sabotage and booby traps encountered, ''There's something about Baja,'' said Judy Smith, 72, a motor sports journalist and a former off-road racer herself. ''Something happens to people here. Something happens, and after that they can never stay away.''
