Christopher Polvoorde's Battle in Baja The 2021 Baja 400

Christopher and the CP94 team raced the 2nd annual Baja 400 on September 18th, 2021. Christopher had his Optima Batteries powered Ford Raptor Spec Trophy Truck on a tear in qualifying laying down the fast lap by over 9 seconds in the Spec Trophy Truck class. The CP94 team qualified 13th overall beating out all the Spec TT's, the Class 1 cars, and half of the Trophy Truck class. The race started off great for the team, CP and best friend / co-driver, Bryce Romine, had pushed hard early picking off nearly half of the class 1 cars by RM 60 in order to create some distance and obstacles between themselves and the rest of the 6100's. The boys ran at a good pace and even after some early mishaps, they were able to make up ground on the competition.

At RM 342, as Christopher came over a crest in the mountains there was a Trophy Truck on it's side so he slowed down, nearly to a stop, to check on the drivers. The drivers waived them on and as CP got back on the gas in an off camber turn, the truck began slipping off the course and rolled into a crevice. Christopher and Bryce were completely fine. The truck had minimal damage and was able to drive off after being pulled out.

"Well Baja won this one. The Baja 400 was quite the ride but in the end, I'm happy to be safe and have the truck in one piece. I want to give a huge thanks to all the people and companies that support me, I let them down on this one but I will learn from this race and come back stronger for the Baja 1000." -Christopher Polvoorde
