This weekend in the Baja 1000 the Honda A team of Mike Childress, Steve Hengeveld and Quinn Cody destroyed all challengers on their CRF450X. The Honda B team consisting of Robby Bell, Kendall Norman and the legendary Johnny Campbell finished in 2nd place aboard their CRF450X. With the top 15 finishers consisting of 6 Honda CRF450X, 7 Honda XR650, 1 BMW and a KTM the CRF450X is quickly catching up to the legend of the XR650.

“We made history tonight to win the first SCORE Baja 1000 for the Honda CRF450X and for breaking Johnny Campbell’s win-streak and continuing mine with five in a row. I got on the bike at mile 700 and the bike still ran flawlessly, like it’s brand new to the finish line.” Steve Hengeveld
