Millen, Matlock, Lambert, Cafro, Sappy, Murray, Schueler, Alonso, Burn-a-dette.

-Millen: Too experienced and prepared not to win.

-Matlock: Enough said.

-Lambert:
He's just earned the right. With reliable equipment, his driving skills have brought him to the top.

-Cafro:
After pushing way too hard way too early costing him a potential victory at last years 1000, he'll hopefully tone it down a notch, and let his knowledge of the area and driving skills persevere. He constantly runs toe to toe with the best drivers.Dude's got the goods.

-Sappington: Despite the appearance of his equipment, he somehow always finds his way to baja podiums. Never underestimate his team in the 11th hour. Should be sponsored by Energizer.

-Murrays: Because they constantly find a way to top 5 and better Baja finishes. Teamwork and resources are second to none

-Schueler: Abilities should find him higher on the list. I just don't know how a team can still be hungry after so much success over so many years

-Alonso: One of the most friendly at resourceful teams out there. Has proven his ability to finish up top.

-Burnett:
Because he's too effen good not to include. He's a master passer, and the master at being passed. His last minute antics building this, or adding that always spreads his man power too thin. Still not too many drivers that can go wheel to wheel with him. Don't have to, as he usually is his own worst enemy. Gotta admire his passion and desire to win.

Yep still out here to. I wonder if the Textron car stays in the top 10 and they feel they have a chance at a podium . Do they still let max drive ?
I read he was scheduled to do 200 miles then hop out. Unless that was just bs

Here is what has happened guys..

The Google Maps program has a refresh quota. If you are like me you have had it set to refresh every sixty seconds. That means you have hit the 25K reload quota built into the java script. SOOOO this is a problem via SCORE.

My contacts have notified Roger Norman by phone of the issue and they are working to correct it with the tracking company. Apparently this happened at the Baja 500 as well.

Stand by for update.. for now the leaderboard on the map is still showing correctly.

Weatherman feed is working as is the SCORE Live Video feed as of now..

2966-Millen at 225.9 in the lead, 2919-Schueler at 219.5 in 2nd, 2907-Creed at 218.7 in 3rd... Just waiting for the typical self destruction of the Cat as usual...

you may not have hit quota yet
Might help that my wife does some contract work for Google and other internet companies, so we have some great internet speeds and refresh rates. Or maybe, just being out in bum-f^%$-Egypt has some benefits...

I know it's early but I am starting to think my prediction of them winning by 30 minutes was to conservative. Sadly for everyone else they wont break either. Will make for a shitty finish.

Max hasn't moved for a couple minutes. Let's see if maybe he's back up and running in a few, maybe a broken belt.

Edit- I spoke to soon he's up and running again

Max Gordon running a good pace so far. Millen is going to be tough to touch if the car stays together.

That's the same RMM RG had his driver switch. My guess is they gave the car a good look over.

Guthrie Jr. running Millen's pace and keeping it close. Sheldon is driving the Max Gordon machine, Sheldon is known to be very hard on equipment. He is going to have to keep his cool. This is a great test for that SpeedCat to see if it can make a full pull.
