Desert Assassins is proud to announce the premier of Rip to Cabo TV show airing July 27th 11 am PST and 2 pm EST on CBS Sports. The TV show is a reality based show that captures the second Rip to Cabo ride and documents the escapades of a “band of brothers”. Danger and beauty, a mix that drives the testosterone of men Worldwide but it doesn’t have to come in the thrill of chasing the opposite sex. There is an alternate to finding this rush, well she’s still a lady and her name is Baja and she will kick your butt more than any Wife if you don’t treat her with respect. The Monster Energy Rip to Cabo takes to this vast land on dirt bikes and they don’t make an easy trip of it.
FULLERTON, CA. – (Nov. 13, 2012) – Yokohama Tire Corporation-sponsored off-roaders Cameron and Heidi Steele are heading to Mexico’s Baja Peninsula to compete in the storied SCORE Tecate Baja 1000, November 14-17. The Steeles, along with their Desert Assassins teammates, will race on various Geolandar® tires along the demanding course. The 45th running of the race goes from Ensenada to La Paz and is the SCORE racing series season finale.
If Heidi Steele had developed any rust during her time off this season for the birth of their daughter she wasn’t showing it at the Baja 500. Heidi and co-driver Rene Brugger drove their Ford Ranger back onto the podium in her first race back and the second place finish is just the latest in her consistent success at this race. Heidi was last years class 6 series champ and despite the time off hopes to defend the title for 2012.
Desert Assassins driver, Heidi Steele, finished in fifth place (class 6) at the SCORE Baja 1000 held in Ensenada, Mexico November 17-20. That placement provided enough points to cap-off her consistent success this season with her fourth series class championship. The good news kept flowing for the DA family as after the race Heidi and racer husband, Cameron, also announced that they are expecting a baby girl in early 2012. Congratulations are due all the way around!
It was an exceptional day for the Steele family and Yokohama Tire Corporation at the Tecate SCORE San Felipe Challenge of Champions, September 10, in San Felipe, Baja, California, Mexico. Husband and wife team Cameron and Heidi Steele put on a show with Yokohama’s Geolandar® tires. Heidi – battling severe stomach flu – won the Class 6 division (with a lot of help from co-driver and Desert Assassins teammate Rene Brugger and his son Richie), while Cameron finished fifth in the ultra-competitive Trophy Truck division, and seventh overall among all 77 racers.
Competing in Mexico has been extremely good for Yokohama Tire Corporation-sponsored off-road racer Heidi Steele. This year alone, she’s won the San Felipe 250 in March and was third in the Baja 500. Steele can add to her Mexico mastery and pad her lead in SCOREs Class 6 with a win in the Tecate SCORE San Felipe Challenge of Champions, September 9-11, in San Felipe, Baja, California, Mexico.
