I spent the past weekend in Guanajuato Mexico with Walker Evans and Jimmy Smith. They were down here for the MXRRA event. The race ended up being canceled about an hour before it was supposed to start due to a greedy govt, but we still did the pre-run, parade and party. Good times. I have to say Walker and Jimmy both impressed me as being down to earth racers who just happen to have hit the big time. Walker spent more time with all the kids than he did with adults, which is great to see. Both of them never turned anyone away or acted too busy for a picture and autograph. Both of them have ties to MI (Walker was born and raised outside Lansing and Jimmy because of his NASCAR/ Truck series sponsors).

All the land is owned by a small group of miners who hates the govt. They have opened it up to everyone to use, despite what the govt says they can use the land for.

local TV interview. Ponce (speaking) is the event director and the person who invited me. He is a rally pilot who is trying to grow rock racing in Mexico

The race was canceled after the interviews, but most groups stayed and played around
