The First Five Minutes of the 2009 Baja 500
Today's video gives us a first hand look at the first five minutes of racing this year's Baja 500 from inside the car of auto racing veteran Robby Gordon.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be sitting in a race car, anxiously awaiting the checkered flag to go down just so you can stomp down on the gas pedal and speed off onto rugged terrain? Well, now's your chance as we go along for a ride with the first five minutes of this year's Baja 500.
This in-car camera captures the first five minutes of the 2009 Baja 500 as seen through the lens within Robby Gordon's car. Robby Gordon is a NASCAR driver who has also participated in several previous Baja 500's, a race often regarded as one (if not the) most dangerous off-road race in modern times. The best thing about this video in my opinion is listening to that engine rev and roar through the streets of Ensenada and into the off-road terrain of its surrounding deserts. I love it, and hopefully you will too.
