Close shave for Rossi at Baja 1000

By: Marty Fiolka | 15 hours ago While Indy 500 champion Alexander Rossi certainly has experienced his share of near misses in open-wheel racing, it’s likely none will match the one he experienced in the first miles of today’s BFGoodrich SCORE Baja 1000.

Behind the wheel of his team’s No.709 Honda Ridgeline Class 7 truck, Rossi was negotiating a high-speed section of the course near Ojos Negros, just 33 miles into the race. Known for fast but blind rolling jumps, the road is technically open to local traffic – as Rossi soon discovered. As the videos clearly show, it was almost lights out for Rossi’s factory Honda effort, never mind a Mexican spectator and their rearview mirror.

Despite the incident and getting stuck in severe silt several miles down the course, Rossi managed to make it to his pit in San Felipe and turn the truck over to team owner Jeff Proctor second in class. The Honda will also be piloted by Baja veteran Pat Dailey and then 11-time Baja 1000 overall champion motorcycle rider Johnny Campbell.As we often say, each Baja 1000 is a million stories. Now an Indy 500 champ has one of his very own. Viva Baja!
