THE DREAM

Finish the Race—and a Community Center in Baja

We’re rallying a community of adventurers, racers, and purpose-minded people to our “Race to the Finish” campaign. We’re going all-in to cross two finish lines that have never been crossed before.

Let’s change a community, together.

The Rig: Boarchata

We are aiming for our 1973 FJ55 Land Cruiser, Boarchata, to be the first vintage class vehicle to finish the Baja 1000 since the class was introduced five years ago.

While racing, we’ll be raising awareness and money to complete construction, and open the doors of the Buena Onda, a community center in Punta Colonet, right along the route of the Baja 1000.

Punta Colonet

Originally a fishing village, through agriculture Punta Colonet grew to a community of approximately 4,000 people.

The majority of people in Colonet work in fields picking tomatoes, peppers, onions, etc. Workers earn approximately $16 a day and often work 12 hours in a shift, 6 or 7 days of the week.

The Buena Onda Project

Buena Onda’s mission is to strengthen and empower families in Punta Colonet, and to invest in its emerging generation.



The team is building a community center to serve the families of Punta Colonet. They are currently in construction of the second floor, and after that the roof. Then, doors and windows, kitchen and bathrooms, and the septic system.

While they’ve made great progress over these past few years, they need all of us to help get them across the finish line, open the doors, and begin serving the kids and families of Punta Colonet.

Head over to TheBuenaOnaProject.org for more on the vision, and some great videos documenting the journey thus far.

Let’s Do This. Together.
