In case you were wondering how the “Dirt Mann” (Robby Gordon) did in his Team Hummer USA during this year’s Paris Dakar rally… Gordon finished 8th Overall, which is very impressive for a non “Works” (Factory-Backed) team.

Meanwhile while I was writing about Rich Conklin’s commentary on Mario Andretti, I came across another of his stories about the one hour documentary I’d recently watched on the Speed channel: Two Roads to Glory. This was a special about two different team’s paths towards competing in the grueling Baja 1000 in street legal Toyota FJ Cruisers… Whatever those are?
