Just watched it. Too bad the steely dan came in second (our nick name for the millen race truck... before it was the millen race truck).

Oh, and I should add, the millen truck was a pre-production FJ, that had some issues the production ones did not have (like that MAF wiring issue).

If you guy's really liked the show e-mail Speedtv and let them know that you liked it and you would like to see more desert racing or shows like that one on Speed. Unless we tell them that we liked it and want to see more they wont know. Here's a link to Speedtv and let them know you comments.

[ I just noticed there is no windshield, now I know why.. ]

Here's a video of the Millen FJ (uploaded LIVE to the web):

http://06baja1000.textamerica.com/?r...8&_ctgry=26350

Here's a pic of the Necessary FJ (uploaded LIVE to the web):

http://06baja1000.textamerica.com/?r...1&_ctgry=26350


You can see the sequence of vehicles @MM51 here:

http://06baja1000.textamerica.com/?q...5&_ctgry=26350

You can see the #300 (which was seen at the start on the Speed program)

Pirate4x4 Jeepspeed was in between the Necessary FJ & Millen FJ

Thanks for the tip, I set up the DVR to record it and watched it today. Felt bad for the Team Necessary, when they rolled it pre-running before the race even started. Glad to see that they were able to give it a shot, even if they didn't finish, they still made it 800+miles. It just goes to show how tough Baja 1000 can be, Team McMillen had a 5 hour lead, had mechanical trouble and came in 2nd in class by 32 seconds...

Lance- After reading your account of racing the Baja, wow, my hats off to Team Pirate, too bad Speed channel didn't record you guys...Did you guys have a film crew with you? Maybe next year?

It was a very good show and it would be nice to see more like it.

Lance you guys should have made a DVD about your Baja experince and sold it, I know I would have bought a copy.

I tried to get RP Films to come along with us, and we could have made a show like this one.... But they couldn't make it. This year, FOR SURE we will have a film crew!!!!

2nd in line.



i was on the millen crew, had a great time. wish the film crew would have been there for some of the other fun activities! but of course both choppers were on hand when we had the electrical issues.

i'm slowly working on an article for Toyota Trails magazine about the trip.

i had a great time and got invited back for the 500 and this year's 1000. already looking forward to it!

Team Necessary pulled us out in the mud thanks to the 4wd and being cool - and we got 3.4 seconds in the show.

Seriously - THANK YOU!

We stopped for them at RM760 where they were stopped. They asked for trans fluid. Now I know why.
