Looks like they're moving again. Hopefully they don't have more repairs or whatever.

It's not looking good for them being able to finish the race in the 34h allowed. Current projections put them at about 35h.

Looks like they had a couple decent segments since getting back underway, hopefully they can keep the pace up

Too bad as the Boot has been stationary for a while now.

Anybody figure out when they'd have to get the finish by for an official finish? 36 hours right? Anybody know the start time yesterday morning?

I believe the track close at midnight so that may become a factor even more so than the 34hrs.

I hope the tracker is wrong now as it shows the R going off course!

Looks like they went ahead from pit 5 and then returned. Not looking promising.

The unmodified VWs are lurching their way past them at this point. It's not like Ford doesn't know what Baja consists of. Embarrassing.
Not quite like the debut of the Raptor or the Bronco back in the day!

So are they just going to pack it in now?

Yep, I guess that's it for new Bronco...pretty disappointed!

Yeah they are done it looks like...on main roads heading back trailered I'm sure.

Edit - at the speed their going they must have just got on the main roads to make it back by deadline...not sure how that works.
