Mexico Streets in Race Trucks = The Best Taco Run EVER?


(victorious music) (white noise) – This one calls for locks. They’re locked in. – [Mike] What calls for locks? – They just told me to hop into a 900 horse power Pro 2 truck. First time I’ve ever been to Baja. Love it, already. Been here for about a minute and a half, gonna hop in someone’s race truck. – [Mike] Like that truck? – That truck. The one they’re
putting a roof on right now which they should just leave off. (laughing) I don’t even know how they work. They’re automatic, I guess? I’m gonna get all confused. I’m probably too short. Jeff’s taller. – [Mike] They don’t seem
concerned with your height. – No, I don’t think they’re
concerned with anything. (laughing) – [Mike] (mumbles) – I met the dude 10 seconds ago. “Hey man, you wanna drive my truck?” Yes! – One’s back here. Two. Three. It’s a reverse valve body.
– So down. – Manual, automatic. – First,
– All the way down is first, – second,
– second, – then third. (laughing) (engine roaring) (laughing) (loud engine drowns out speech) (bouncy electric music) (click) (white noise) (“Morning from ‘Peer Gynt'”) (sharp eerie chime) – Ehh. (soft thud) – Oh. (air whooshing) (squeak) (loud pop) – [Vince] Look at that. (laughing) – It’s around the same time, you know. That’s what my dad dressed like when I was born. (loud hardy laugh) (Nagra beep) – Explain yourself. – Really? That even
(laughing) you want more? – [Male in blue and green
hat] Explain yourself. (laughing) – Zack is the explanation for that. – This is Narcos season four. – I brought a suitcase – [Male In Blue And Green
Hat] Full of white pants? – It’s full of nothing but white pants. (laughing) – You’re actually – It really gets throttled
once we’re two days deep, and have eaten nothing
but tacos and Tecate. (farting)
(diarrhea) (light scream of relief) – [Dan] Well, see you if we make it back. (fast forwarding) Vince! – [Zac] There he is. – Hey guys! (fiery swoosh) – Also, life coach– – [Dan] So, are you guys taking a train? – Oh man, that’d be so
sick to take a train. (group laughter) All aboard who’s coming aboard! – This is how this is starting. (laughing) That’s it. – Did you tell them the best part though? So Scumbug, unfortunately, cannot go, but our men Michael and Vince here were kind enough to let us bring the ole Intimidator! – We’re headed down to Estero Beach for the Lucas Oil Series. Racing a little short course, I think, is what we’re gonna go watch. Got a couple of Falcon bros down there we’re gonna go check out. (laughing)
– The best part is we got a couple days before the race starts, so we’re gonna take
the old Intimidator out show Mr. Dan here a little bit of Mexico. Hopefully we can get some air. Hopefully we don’t have
to pay off any Federales. – [Dan] All right boys, you ready? – Hell yeah, do I look ready?
(clap) – You, ugh.
(clap) – [Mike] Born ready. – [Dan] You look something. (clap) All right. Vince, fire up the train. (train chugging)
(train horn) (bouncy reverberant music) (short laugh) – Should we just Google Mexico? – [Ashley] No, it’s in your so I
– Yeah, he’s – [Ashley] It is, the Carl’s Jr. – We didn’t put a GoPro on the– (bouncy reverberant music) – We’re gonna take lift to the 405 going south. Holy (rooster squawk). – [Dan] Can you even hear it over there? – What? I don’t know. It’s really hard to hear anything over the sound of those flapping
ratchet straps on the roof. (laughing) – [Ashley] Dan had to bring a surfboard. – Yeah, Dan had to bring a surfboard, but no aux cord. (upbeat reverberant music) – Hey, Mike. What the (rooster squawk) is this? (whimsical reverberant music) (laughing) – Hey guys, we’re here at the border. We’ve been here for about 45 minutes doing insurance paperwork. It’s kinda cool. – We’re not at the border we’re at Carl’s Jr. (laughing) – Yeah, Carl’s Jr. (group laughing loudly) Mike got a sandwich from Subway. We’re all packed up. Ready to cross the border. Hopefully it shouldn’t take too long. And then, we’ll be in Mexico! (folksy guitar music) – [Dan] Lucas Oil Off Road Racing! Mayo 18, 19-o. (folksy guitar music) – (yelling) Baja update,
we made it to Mexico! (folksy guitar music) – My man, do you know which highways we take to get there? – Yeah. (folksy guitar music) (eagle squawking)
(rattlesnake rattle) – [Dan] Well, we made it five minutes. – [Vince] Let’s give it up. – [Dan] Got fuel. – [Juatin] We didn’t get fuel, yet. – [Dan] We’re getting fuel. – Camo bag? Camo
– [Ashley] We threw it out. – You did? – Yeah, it was too heavy. – [Mike] Yeah, we couldn’t
make it up that hill. – I had my mom’s wedding ring in there. (laughing) My grandmother’s wedding ring I was gonna meet a young lady down here (group laughing) and propose to her. I can’t believe you would do that to me. (folksy guitar music) – [Mike] You see the RFC?
– [Dan] Ohh, yeah! – [Mike] Rigo’s Fried Chicken! – [Dan] My man! (white noise) – Couldn’t find Vince. Found a liquor store. Found Vince. – I was there buying beer. (folksy guitar music) (white noise) – [Dan] Well boys, we’ve arrived. – Here we are. – [Dan] And I am 100%
the only guy with Crocs in the entire
– in the entire country. – [Dan] The entire country. – [Justin] For sure. – Yeah. (energetic electric music) – [Automated Female] Short
course off road racing is a form of auto racing
involving modified vehicles on a dirt road closed
course of a short length. The track at Estero Beach is
notoriously tough to tame. Though it lacks some of the
big features of the other tracks on the Lucas Oil Off
Road Racing Series schedule the deceptively simple
Ensenada Track has wrecked its share of race vehicles
in its five year history. Pro 2 Trucks have more power with a lofty cap of 900 horsepower while pro-lite is limited
to 500 horsepower. But power isn’t everything. Pro-lite trucks have a maximum weight of 3,400 pounds, including the driver, which is 600 pounds less
than the Pro 2 truck. To handle the additional power and weight Pro 2 trucks have 6 inches of
additional suspension travel, and 11 inches of wheelbase. – Hey, what’s going on? – [Dan] You’re in the shot. – Okay, I’m in the shot. – [Dan] Talk trucks! – Yo! Let’s talk trucks! ♪ Call me Mr. Flinstone ♪ – [Dan] My friend Cole. – Woo! – [Dan] What’s up, man?
(clap) (laughing) – [Dan] All right, so we made it down. I know it took us forever. – Yup. – [Dan] We’re here. You guys what? Did you practice today?
Did you do anything? Or what are you doing today? – Yeah. We got done with three
practice sessions, today. Struggled with the truck,
a little bit, at first. – [Dan] Is that why you
got the old skins on? I saw it was beat up on the other side. – Hey, this is our party body, all right. We’re gonna go out
there and have some fun. – [Dan] There’s a party body? – This is the party body. – [Dan] That’s the one. – [Cole] So, when we gotta
come through the field this is the body we’re gonna put on it. – [Dan] So, what do you got for the rest of the night, then? – We really got nothing.
– [Mike] Just chilling out? – Go eat some tacos. Yup. – [Dan] That’s what I’m talking about. And then, the rest of the weekend, how’s it gonna go for you? – Feel good truck’s super fast, so we’ll be looking for some cops spots. – [Dan] We’re gonna check
in with you a whole lot. (laughing) We’re gonna watch you smash this thing up. – [Cole] For sure, for sure. – [Dan] I’ll help you even if you have to tear these skins off. – That’s the reason why the hoods a little cracked up already. She’s got a few little red
bits in there, but hey. – [Dan] We were just talking about what drivetrain’s in here?
What motor is in here? – A LS3 with a Turbo 400 behind it. – [Dan] Man that’s exactly what Mike said. – [Cole] Yup. – [Dan] He called it, first thing. – Yup, yup. – Fast, faster, and fastest. – [Mike] The other way! – No, it starts fast, faster, fastest. Like, if we wanna party, go
all the way down to the bottom. – [Mike] So, can you just
stick it in party, and go? – Oh, we wanna stick her in party? (banging)
[Mike] There it is! – So, it’s all the way
from here, right there. That’s party mode. – [Dan] You’re gonna forget about it, and drive through this. Get some tacos, man.
(clap) We’ll talk to you later.
– All right. (intense booming music) – [Dan] Hey, Jeff, how’s it going? – Hey, Mike, how you doing?
– [Dan] Little high five. – Pleasure to meet you. – [Dan] Hey, what’d you just tell me? – You wanna drive that thing? – Exactly. That’s the wrong attitude to have with us
(laughing) let’s just say. “Wanna get in and drive it?”
– [Jeff] Get in it. – Yeah, I would definitely
wanna drive this. – Get in it! – [Dan] Well, what am
I getting into anyway? It’s a Pro 2, right? – It’s a Pro 2. – [Dan] And, what is the Pro 2 class? Now, what motor is this? – That’s a 430 cubic inch Ford. – [Dan] How much power? – It’s about 850 to 900 horse. – 800 to 900 horsepower. He said, “Just get in it.” Okay. All right, Jeff, I’ll
meet you over there, then. – All right, let’s go! (laughing) (engine roaring) – How do they just show
up and get a race team? – I’m jealous. This is neat. I’m super jealous. – What are you, nervous? – No. Never nervous. I was born for this shit! I’ve never had 900 horsepower before. Yeah, I have, actually. – [Mike] Is this how you
thought your day was gonna end? – No, not at all. Not
even close, actually. I knew tacos were in the day. (engine roaring) (laughing) – Here you go, Dan. – [Dan] Fuck yeah! – [Ashley] What are you doing? (laughing) – That’s how I show up to Baja. (engine roaring) – All the way back is first gear. – [Dan] It’s just automatic. – It’s auto shift. – [Dan] So, that’s first. – That’s it. (engine roars loudly) – [Dan] He was yelling at me. (ding) – That guy was like, “Cut it,” and I was like, “Aww man.” – [Mike] And you were like, (skirt) “Yeah, I am cutting it.” – I was about to be like,
“I didn’t see that guy,” but I (rooster squawk) saw him. Man, those things are crazy! I was probably 3,000 maybe 4,000 rpm in the red range is way high. 900 horsepower, so I was
barely even touching it. Just vroom, vroom, vroom. And, those are huge tires. You can just slay it. I wanted to just hammer on it, but (mumbles).
– [Mike] What did the guy do? Just said, “Cut it.” (laughing) He’s like, “Stop,
what are you doing here?” I was like, “I don’t know. “They told me I could. But, I can’t.” (laughing) (electrical humming) – [Zac] Oh yeah! Check that (rooster squawk) stance! Big Mike Cox, what are we
about to go do, right now? – We’re gonna go do some Mexico laps! – [Zac] Dang ole
– Ass kicking fun. – [Zac] ass kicking. – Good ole American fun in Mexico. – [Zac] Good ole, full throttle
(rooster squawk) good time. (laughing) – Why you zoom on me for (rooster squawk)? (laughing) That’s what I’m here for. – All right, so, after a change of wardrobe, Big Mike Cox and I are gonna go try find a jump real quick before
we lose some light. Man, this no windshield
thing (rooster squawk) sucks! – [Mike] Yeah. – Oh, end of the day
here, found a little jump. This little guy right here. Full moon, so you know, real dumb (rooster
squawk) about to happen. Oh yeah, real (rooster squawk) super sketchy landing pad for him. (engine roaring) Damn! – [Justin] Look at that three wheel. (laughing) – [Zac] Yeah! (engine roaring) You guys tell me of a tougher $8500 truck than this one. – [Justin] Yeah. – [Zac] No.
– This thing is so tough. – [Zac] Doesn’t exist. – You should hit that one, right there. – I’ll do it. I don’t care. (laughing) (engine roaring) – [Zac] Yeah! – We’re born senders, dude. – There we go, woo!
– [Zac] Born senders. That was nice dude. Jason Bourne Sender.
– Sender. – Jesus Christ, it’s Jason Bourne. – Well, it’s not been terribly long day except for just riding in cars, but, as soon as we got here,
we had a whole bunch of fun. Now, we’re gonna take these
trucks to go get tacos. (vintage electric music) – [Automated Female] A
taco is a traditional Mexican dish consisting of
a corn or wheat tortilla folded or rolled around a filling. A taco can be made with
a variety of fillings including beef, pork, chicken, seafood, vegetables, and cheese, allowing great versatility and variety. The origins of the taco
are not precisely known, and etymologies for the culinary usage of the word are
generally theoretical. The word taco describes
a typical Mexican dish of a maize tortilla folded around food. The taco predates the arrival
of the Spanish in Mexico. There is anthropological evidence that the indigenous people living
in the lake region of the valley of Mexico traditionally ate tacos filled with small fish. – [Mike] We’re taking race
trucks to go get tacos. – (laughing) Race trucks to go get tacos. (beeping) I love Mexico. (engine roaring) (wind blowing) – [Mike] So, Zac. – Yeah! – [Mike] Driving the
Intimidator for the first time. – Dang ole right! This
is full blown race car. – [Mike] Yeah! – Is that Ashley? – [Mike] Yeah. (laughing) – [Zac] Looking good, Ash! (engines roaring) – [Zac] (yelling) Viva la Mexico! – [Mike] Woo, doggy! (engines roaring loudly) – [Mike] Race car parking only. Woo-hoo! – Ha Ha! – [Zac] Yeah! (engines revving) – [Zac] God damn! – That things rowdy, huh? – [Zac] Waa! – Woo! (upbeat latin music) – This is my favorite part of Mexico. I mean, not geographically, but the fact that we can do this. (laughing) – [Dan] I can’t even see everybody. – [Mike] Everybody (mumbles). – [Dan] There’s too many. (yelling) Everybody come in here! – Film from the other side.
– [Dan] Be friends! – [Mike] Why do you guys give
the short man the camera? – [Dan] I’m gonna go this way, so we’re not back lit,
and doing all this stuff. Well, these made it. This obviously is not America. – Hey, it’s plenty of America, God dammit, this is the most patriotic
thing I’ve seen all week. – [Dan] We brought a bunch of America. – That’s right, so, we’ve decided to wrap this, and nip this day with getting some tacos. In the only way that we
thought was appropriate and that is driving
everyone’s race car here. (laughing) Completely unsanctioned. (everyone yelling) That’s a wrap! (bold reverberant music) (engine roaring) – [Mike] Hi, Vince. – Hey! Dude, I love Mexico. (engine revving) (engine roaring)
