Baja 500: Eugenio wins Dakar Challenge

216 competitors started the 47th edition of the Baja 500 on Saturday. Among them, six drivers were entered in the Dakar Challenge. In addition to pre-race favorite, Bryce Menzies and the mysterious masked driver Robert Acer, Steven Eugenio, Casey Currie, Eric Hustead and Shane Scully all shared the same goal of winning their entry into the 2016 Dakar.

On a particularly rough route this year, the 510 mile race around Ensenada, it was Steven Eugenio who came out on top of the Dakar Challenge, in 8th place overall, after 9 hours 31minutes of racing and just 25 minutes behind the overall winner Apdaly Lopez.
