Maxxis Dominates Baja 500 ATV
Maxxis is celebrating top performance from its Razr ATV tyres in the 2008 Baja 500 ATV. With a victory for Wayne Matlock’s team and a third place finish for Mike Cafro’s crew – both riding Honda TRX 700XX machines – Maxxis dominated the 500-mile race, which was held in Ensenada, Mexico, from May 30-June 1.
After what ATVriders.com called “almost a flawless run,” Matlock and his team-mates won in a time of 10 hours, 10 minutes and 40 seconds – a mere 21 seconds ahead of the second placed team. The Maxxis-sponsored team traded the lead a number of times throughout the race, battling through near-zero visibility at one point.
”Everything went flawless. All we had to do was put gas in and go. We didn’t even have to change a tyre,” said Matlock.
