San Felipe, Baja California (December 4-6, 2015) -
Team MegaDust Racing had a successful finish in the Code Race Ready 275 from Mexicali to San Felipe Baja Mexico.
Joel Benveniste and Andy Farris competed in a large field of class 5-1600's in the off road race which started Saturday morning just outside of Mexicali
and finished in darkness in San Felipe. Thanks to the excellent performance of the SuperBright LEDs we had total illumination for the last 2 1/2 hours of
our race. We had a nearly flawless race except for one flat at mile 80. We thank our friends Mike Hoffman and Dan Imthurn for their incredible help as
our chase crew throughout the event.
