AMIGOS,

We are almost back home in PLANET GTOROCKS®, Guanajuato Mexico just making a quick pit stop in Laredo Texas to prep our WRC race car for the WRC MEXICO race coming in 15 days www.rallymexico.com :D

KOH was like being on a desert planet, we were amazed at the amount of people that showed up. EVerthing was first class and we are always treated like family there. Gracias Amigos.

Congrats to Team 667 rockers out of Farmington, they proved to many that the underdog can win. Loren Healy this was big time and your team proved yourself. I was talking to Randy about the rig he built for you and how you guys wanted to come down to one of our MXRRA events. Keep in touch and we would be honored to have you down here. Way to show your endurance abilities and driving skills. BONGO! :D

DAVE and JEFF, what can I say. You took this event and transformed it into the best rock motorsports event that has gone down in the books. Will be back with more BONGO to try LCQ in 2011. Also our buddies from VENEZUELA will be trying it, I hear they may be even some Skandinavian teams coming! KOH is now the international bongo to race. Hope you liked the bottle of mezcal we left you on Saturday, sorry we had to bolt but we barely made our plane flight out.


Summary of our Total CARNAGE this year was a blown tranny caused by a faulty new fuel cell that stalled twice and caused the tranny to force the clutches and burn out. We managed to crawl futher this year and get up the Waterfall using a winch but only had reverse. Thanx to all the KOH staff and Virgina crew for helping us get the rig back to camp. TEAM MEXICO will return next time with more BONGO! Racing feeling is PRICELESS.


CONGRATS TO ALL THE TEAMS AND VOLUNTEERS.

IN CONCLUSION THIS TYPE OF OFFROAD RACING WAS SOMETHING YOU JUST HAVE TO SEE TO BELIEVE. SIMPLY AMAZING! MAKING IT ONE OF A KIND! We always learn plenty and try to adapt some things to our racing down here in mexico and in europe. Another story to add on to our list of adventures.

SPECIAL THANX TO THE FOLLOWING:
Jeff Knoll, Dave and Chris Cole (For Allowing us to race. YOU GUYS DID AN EXCELLENT JOB!)
BILL BRIDGE for putting up his rig and driving LCQ, (We pulled off a Shake and Bake Sling Shot this time since my foot is still healing from a freak accident back in Oct 2009). Bill Bridge will be my co driver for WRC 2010 events.
My girlfriend Maria and my parents for all their support.
KRISTEN BRIDGE for cooking and putting up with all the late night mexican partying.
DETRIOT ROCK CITY (Mike Colville, DJ, Nick, Jason...) crew for bringing down our rig and hanging out with the beaners. Oh and for tyring out Mezcal. :grinpimp: Misfits 4x4 Club www.misfitsoffroad.com

North Star Motorsports
Danny Grimes for all your advise and welcome the first night we arrived.
The rock band for allowing us to dedicate a tune to our crew and memory of my lil bro.
Aaron Campbell
Carey Steiner for the giving good luck right before the LCQ start. (Glad we made it this year and proved even a norwegian can hang in the desert)


Always great to see the following amigos again and meet for the first time:

If I missed out anyone I apologize, there were so many people that at times we got lost. Or kidnapped. Once againg we felt at times like I was in Thunderdome from the Mad Max movies.


THANX AGAIN TO EVERYONE FOR EVERYTHING! TUSEN TAKK TIL DERE ALLE!

This race was dedicated to my Lil Bro Louie Ponce, My parents and my good friend Armando Ulises Bocanegra.

Bongo ! ! ! !

Can't thank enough to the organizers, staff and volunteers you guys are the bomb ! ! ! ! ! !

Will not mention any names because it's embarrassing to leave anyone out, but you know who you are.

Great to meet up with old friends and of course all the new ones we made this year.

looking forward to 2011 this time we hope our piñata will not get kidnapped, we will bring more bottles of tequila and a camera and blank passports.

Ponce i don't think Jeff and Dave know about the KOH International Consulate we set up. Thanks Sweden, Australia, Germany, Italia, U.S.A., Norway and Mexico for the great times in the RV.

Special mention to Loren for taking the show, and Brad for taking the off road man of the year and all the participants of KOH 2010.

Hope everyone had a safe trip back home

We finally fount the Pinata at the Smorr Trailer I guess it was a paybackl for taking their bananna at MOROC 2009. Poor Thing ended up in the bomb fire to keep the bongo fiesta going!!! :grinpimp:

CAMO, already make a bigger BONGO plan for KOH LCQ 2011 :grinpimp:

JEFF, Check you email, lots of WRC homologated rigs down here and in the RALLY AMERICA USA need shocks and coil overs for gravel racing. It was a pleasure to meet you, that night was fun. :grinpimp:

Aaron, I told you that Mezcal is the drink of the gods, it has multi purpose uses, especially out in the desert BONGO! :eek:Thump, ...got to keep all the animals away :grinpimp:

Kristen, I know I Know...Jeg elsker Maria :D WRC is just 15 days away! :eek:

Seeyouonthetrail, guess you fellas finally got payback for me taking the bananna at MOROC in Spring tx, I think we may go again in March or April so watch out. The pinata ended up in the bomb fire :evil:

Loren, glad to see an LCQ'r took the crown, that just shows that anything is possible. Congrats once again to your team. Keep us updated on your events in Farmington to see if we can attend. We still watch the old school Goodyear Farmington RC video to get us pumped down here. Our terrain is very similar to yours. See ya soon.

Angie, wish we could of stayed until Sunday but we had to fly out early. Enjoy those with some jello or on cake. Saludos al Jeff.

I was glad to meet you and drag you back to camp from Backdoor. I had to meet the guy behind all the funny pics and you-tube videos, you are a blast, even in defeat you were happy and smiling all the time. Better luck next year! If you ever make it to the east coast to wheel or compete let me know I would be happy to help you out.
