We are racing the Southern Az Desert Racing Series "Cholla 250" in Sept of 2012. The race is in Rocky Point Mexico on Sept 22nd. We will have 3 class 10 cars, one class 1600 car and a sportsman car all racing at the same time and need help with pit crews and chase teams.

I will be getting a place to stay on Friday the 21st and Sat the 22nd for everyone to stay in, but I need some solid numbers before I book the room.

This is not a vacation to bring the kids, you will be chasing these cars through the desert, changing tires, dumping fuel etc... Plan on lifting heavy things, digging, towing, being hot and dirty.

Friday night will be a drivers meeting, Saturday will start at dawn and go to until sunset and then a final post race celebration Saturday night.

I will cover the cost of the hotel room and supply chase vehicles and supplies for the day. The rest is up to you.

If you are TRULY interested in helping out let me know ASAP.
I will supply you with as much info as I can and updates as the race gets closer.

Hi My name is Kenny Bennett, I'm 43 6'6" and around 340-350 lbs, me and my son Cody (19) have only been to one off road race, snow flake , a couple of years ago it was Awsome! I have always wanted to try racing class 9 or some other entry level class. I would love to try pitting to get a real feel for the sport! If you would let me know what items I would require ie passport cash ect. ect. I can take the days off from my work I don't know about my son. I would be more than willing to cover his expences if he were able to go also. Thank you Sincerly Kenny P.S. my e-mail is azdesertrat87 @ hotmail.com

Confirmed for race in Rocky Point:

Wideopenmotorsports (1)
JWHRacing (1)
Reggie (2)
Exzeller8 (1)
AzDesertRat87 (1) maybe 2 not confirmed yet.

We may have 2 chase trucks for sure and maybe a 3rd one will be done in time.

Additionally, we will have helmets and fire suits with each chase truck. If we have an illness or injury during the race, one of you may get to be a co-driver in a car.

Race map for Cholla 250 is up. Looks pretty much like the map I had with a section near the mtns. taken out.



Route out of town seems about the same.



Right now I am looking at Chase 1 being me, Kenny and Cody. Covering start to pit 2 and then on the return from hwy back to start/finish. Chase 2 will be Scott (Scooter) and JWHRacing (James). This truck will be stationed at pit 3. Chase 3 will be Reggie and Jodi. They will take the area where the course returns to the hwy (green line) back to the Benito Juarez interchange.

Again I will update this thread when more stuff becomes available. If anyone finds out they CANNOT go I need to know ASAP.

Weird just going off the gov web site, says they'll take 4-6 weeks. I think the web site is travel.gov and we're filling out form ph 1155 or some such number should have all of the required info this week and then we can sumit itat the local passport place.
