Baja Designs Night Race Back For Las Vegas EnduroCross


Baja Designs Night Race Back For Las Vegas EnduroCross

A Tribute to the Baja 1000 and other Endurance Events

Irvine, CA (November 14, 2011) – The Baja Designs night race is a must see and will again take place at this weekend’s GEICO AMA EnduroCross Finals, presented by Lucas Oil. The Baja 1000 and other desert races are best known for night racing with high performance lighting systems guiding the way. For this special event, the expert riders that just miss qualifying for the double main events from the Last Chance Qualifiers will be invited to mount up Baja Designs battery powered Diablo light kits and race with the Orleans Arena lights turned off. They will duke it out for the $500 winner take all prize.

The Las Vegas EnduroCross Finals will include a full night of racing. For the first time ever, the Expert riders will race two separate main events with full championship points and purse on the line. The Freegun Underwear Women’s invitational will also take place along with the AMA Grand Championship finals for the support classes for the TrialsCross, Open Amateur and Vets, which will attract a few big name riders that are over the age of 35. The support class riders have qualified from each of the six previous EnduroCross events for the opportunity to race for AMA Number One plates in Las Vegas so these will be the best of the best riders competing.

Like all EnduroCross events, you can count on a lot of activity at the Orleans Arena all day on Saturday, November 19th. The pits are open free all day to meet the top riders and check out their bikes up close. The arena is also open for free during the daytime qualifiers that start on Saturday morning as well as for the Expert practice and Hot Laps that take place during the midafternoon.

Tickets are available at and

EnduroCross tracks incorporate various elements of extreme off road racing into a supercross-style setting, including rocks, boulders, logs, sand, mud, a water-hole…and even a few special obstacles like giant tires thrown in! Known as the “toughest racing on two wheels,” this indoor off road racing will certainly keep you on your feet. Don’t miss your chance to see GEICO AMA EnduroCross “Live”. ESPN, ESPN2 and ABC will combine to telecast 25 hours of live X Games 17 competition, which will include Enduro X.

      Since there is no longer a street bike forum, is anyone watching MotoGP or interested?

      Hey guys, 
      I've used this forum as a "guest" for awhile now and I thought I'd share my build now that it's all coming together.  The primary purpose of this project is to help me train for roadracing my 2009 R1 at lower speeds as well as giving me a cheap alternative to racing the big bike. 
      Here's what she looked like when I picked it up from a local shop.  Paid $800 cash for the bike as you see it with 17' rims, FMF pipe, EBC 250mm front rotor and clip on handle bars.

      Fits PERFECT!

      So I have a 2008 yz450f and I would like to add some LED lights to it to make it street legal. Mainly just a headlight and a tail light and turn signals if I need to (which where I live hand signals work).
      So where I need help is getting power from the stator to a battery. Wiring from a battery to anything else I got and understand and don't need help with (but recommendations are welcome). So my questions are.
      What type of power is coming from the stator. AC or DC? Will I need a regulator or rectifier? How do I wire something from the stator to charge a battery? What would that wiring look like? Would this stator work? Anything else I should know? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

      KTM has held a unique record in 250SX since 2011—it’s the only brand to have won in every season. Kawasaki did not win in '15, Honda did not win in '17 (and so far, it has not done so this season), Yamaha had no wins in '13, and Suzuki did not have any in '11 nor between 2014-'17, while Husqvarna did not get any wins between '11 and '15. This consistency also yielded KTM's 40th victory in the 125/250 supercross classes, thanks to Jordon Smith's first win in 2018 at last Saturday night's Daytona SX. The Austrian KTM got its first triumph in small-bore supercross back in 2001, with the South African Grant Langston. The most successful KTM winner is Marvin Musquin, who won 11 times. So far, KTM has collected 22 wins in the West Region, while Smith's win was KTM's 18th victory in the East Region. KTM also took its second Daytona victory; Musquin got the first one in '15.
