AMERICAN HONDA PRO ATV TEAM WIN TECATE SCORE SAN FELIPE 250

On March 13, 2009 the #1A American Honda team of Wayne Matlock, Harold Goodman and Josh Caster won the Tecate Score San Felipe 250 Overall ATV title.

The #1A Honda team headed to the race determined to take the win and continue their winning streak from last year’s dominating performance at this year’s San Felipe 250. The team would be riding the Honda TRX700XX for the first year in San Felipe. The race would run the same course as last year but each teammate spent time running their section of the course multiple times. The course included everything from sand washes and rocky canyons to large whooped out sections as it made it’s way around Baja.

Matlock, who started was third quad off the line and would ride to race mile 25. Fighting dust and swarming crowds, Matlock rode his first section through the famous Zoo Road Crossing at a fast steady pace holding his position.

Goodman took the quad from Matlock at race mile 25 and continued around his section of the course into the big sandy whoops of Borrego and down Diablo Dry Lake. Along the way Goodman was able to take the lead before handing the quad off to Caster at race mile 93.

Caster was able to jump on the quad in the lead by 3 minutes thanks to Goodman and continued the fast pace set by his other teammates. Caster’s section included the famous desolate and rocky Matomi Wash before handing the quad back to Matlock at race mile 170. Before handing the quad off to Matlock, Caster was able to gain another 6 minutes to the lead.

Matlock would continue on the quad from race mile 170 to the finish. Matlock’s last section of the race course included the rock filled whoops of the Azufre and Huatamote Washes before heading back towards San Felipe. Matlock continued the fast pace the team set early in the race and would gain another 6 and ˝ minutes before crossing the finish line.

The team’s time of 5:16:36 (44.04 mph) was 15 and ˝ minutes faster than the 2nd Place Pro ATV team of Felipe Velez, a local team of San Felipe aboard a Honda TRX450R. Team Honda’s time was good enough to take the win in the Pro ATV class as well as the Overall ATV win.
