Christopher and the CP94 team have made the decision to race the 2nd annual Baja 400 on September 18th 2021! The Baja 400 is put on by SCORE International. The 400 is a newer race which began in 2019 and is an important one because the finish order of the Baja 400 determines the start order of the Baja 1000 which the CP94 team will also be adding to the 6100 Spec Trophy Truck schedule.
Qualifying Wednesday 9/15 Christopher qualified Wednesday 9/15 in his Optima Batteries powered Ford Raptor 6100 Spec Trophy Truck. The qualifying course was a 5 mile loop that had wide open straight aways, jumps, tight technical sections and everything in between. CP & his best friend / Co-Driver, Bryce Romine, ran hard in qualifying and took the top spot in the 6100 Spec Trophy Truck class.
