->> seriously, to me, the sidelines of a football game are more dangerous than motor sports. Or should I say, I've had many more close calls during lacrosse and football games than racing. That fan depicted is simply an idiot

->> The actual first thought was "WTF!" I'm surprised the driver of the car that stopped - I think when he saw that moron - didn't come back and run him over out of spite.

->> I've been shooting Baja races for a number of years an this is not that uncommon. Many of the locals are a bit crazy, often thanks to a healthy dose of liquid courage. Many have been hit and injured, maimed or killed. A guy on a bicycle was run over right off the start this year.

Here a family crosses a hot and very slippery race course just 80 feet or so in front of a 600hp unlimited suspension Class 1 car doing 60mph. BTW that mud is half raw sewage.

The driver of the first car, Ryan Plowman is a friend. He told he saw the guy and lifted a little.

My favorite part of the video is the local flipping off the cops car for going around him.

The Baja 1000 is one of the most fun, crazy, memorable, incomprehensible 36 hours of your life.
