Yes, the Baja 1000 is a long race: During the late hours after the sun has set, racers may find themselves seemingly alone between mile markers. At other times, traffic is a problem. Racing rules allow overtaking vehicles to gently tap or "nerf" slower vehicles ahead of them as a "get out of the way" warning. Since stuck or broken race vehicles must often depend on fellow competitors for aid, courteous nerfing is the way to go. Bob Graham and Mike Horner, seen here chasing down a fellow competitor, took their Donahoe-prepped Norwalk Toyota Tacoma to the Baja 1000 Class Seven win as well as the Class Seven SCORE season championship.
