San Felipe, Mexico - As the 25th Annual San Felipe 250 commences festivities on Friday, Brandon Brown and his team will have been training, tuning, and pre-running in Mexico for almost a week. Team Quad75Dezert, led by Quad75 himself, is in Mexico to defend their Class 24 title. For the 250, Brandon is once again joined by team rider and head mechanic from S&S Motorsports, Kenny Sanford, rider Jorie Williams, who is returning to the team from last year, & new for the 250 is WORCS pro rider Robbie Mitchell.

“I’m very excited to have the opportunity [to race]!" Robbie stated, "I have known Brandon and Jorie for a long time and think we will make a great team. I’m not quite sure what to expect but I think a lot of the fun grows from that.” ”Robbie’s sponsors were gracious enough to let us borrow him.

We are very happy to have Robbie on board for the 250 this year,” said Brandon. Coming off of a winning season for 2010, claiming the Class 24 win for the year and for the 1000, as well as the ATV Overall win for the 1000, the team is optimistic about 2011.

New for the 250 is "Team 2." Also running Class 24, Team 2 consists of Jamie Kirkpatrick, who was a support member during the 1000, Greg Kirk, a longtime desert racer that contributed to Brandon's start in the desert world, and Brian Watkins, a Northwest local who has shown strong endurance skills in races there. "Team 2 was Jamie's idea and I was really for it.

Desert racing is a lot of fun and it will be nice to have someone I know well racing with us. It's great to know someone has your back in case anything goes wrong," Brandon said. The team has been in Mexico since Sunday the 6th, and started pre-running Monday. "Things are going well," team mechanic Kenny Sanford said, "So far no big problems. It's been work, but we've had time to enjoy some tacos, too." Brandon and Kenny continued to say the teams looked good and that they looked forward to the 252 mile race.

16 teams have entered Class 24. Team 2 will be running the 106A, drawing 6th off the line, while Team 1 will leave last off the line.  Friday March 11th is Contingency Day & tech inspection for the race bikes, as well as the riders' meeting. Saturday the race starts at 6am for motorcycles and is expected to last about 6 hours,  however racers have 11 hours to complete the course. "“I’m always excited about racing in Mexico. As we do more of these races, it doesn’t get ‘easier’ but you do know what to expect and what you should be preparing for,” Brandon Brown said, “We’re lucky to have a great support team of friends, family, and of course sponsors helping in preparations all the way through the finish of the race."
