Adelanto GP

Last weekend Paladin Racing rider Craig Anstine traveled to Adelanto, CA for the Adelanto GP. The 12 mile coarse incorporated a couple sections of pavement, a very well groomed motocross track, with the bulk of the coarse being a very rough and whooped out desert section. However, it was not the coarse that posed a challenge. The start was a dead engine start; meaning that all competitors must start their bike at the drop of the start flag in order to begin the race. Although the dead engine start posed a bit of a problem, keeping Craig out of the race for the lead, once started the race was on. All in all it was a good weekend of racing, and good training for the upcoming San Felipe 250; the first race in the SCORE Off-Road Series.

In 2007 Paladin Racing committed to racing for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. Competing in, and finishing, the Baja 250, 500, and 1000, Paladin racing posted a 4th overall finish for the season.
In 2008 Paladin Racing will continue it’s effort to raise money and awareness for the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation, and again be competing in the SCORE International series, racing the San Felipe 250, the Baja 500 and Baja 1000.
Several team riders will also be competing in various other desert and enduro races including Adelanto, races in the New Mexico Desert Racing series, and the We Be Racing series, with races in Southern Utah, Southern Colorado, and Northern New Mexico.
At these races Paladin Racing will be setting up a booth to distribute informational flyers for the NFFF and raise money, and to promote our sponsors and supporters. Paladin Racing will also be securing a booth at several special events happening throughout the year on the plaza in Santa Fe New Mexico. These events include the Spanish Market for which people come from all over the world to attend, and the largest and oldest traditional event in New Mexico, Fiestas. Paladin Racing will also be working in conjunction with Sandia MotoCross Park in Albuquerque New Mexico to put on a fund raising event.
This year Paladin Racing will be working to expand the team and race two bikes. With your help we will continue to grow and the NFFF will continue to benefit.
