||No team can race Baja without a support system. Some teams have more resources than others, but everyone has a loyal group of people ready to help them throughout the race at the pit stops. Some pits are team-run and others are race-sponsored, but all are there to make sure every racer has a shot at finishing the race. Incredibly, the people in the pits (many of whom have the skills to fix even the most serious automotive problems) are, more often than not, volunteers. The devotion the pit crews demonstrate, waiting in the middle of the desert from early morning until the next day to help a racer with fuel or food or whatever they need, is incomparable. Every racer or pit-worker has a story and they all add to the Baja experience.
