Jeff Kargola, Baja racer, Freestyle Rider and short course truck racer
JCR Honda rider Jeff “Ox” Kargola was injured in the short course truck race last weekend. I don’t have much for details, but from his Facebook page it looks like he has broken his leg and has been in the hospital all week. Ox was scheduled to ride on the Honda “B” team for the JCR squad.
Colton Udall and Ox won the 2010 SCORE San Felipe 250 earlier this year as the B team, beating the lead Honda. That put them in the running for the SCORE overall championship if they could have won the Baja 1000.
That currently leaves Colton and new team member Justin Imohf to race the 1000 next week. No word from JCR if there will be a replacement rider. It looks like Timmy Weighand, who is just back from the ISDE, is down pre running, but no word which team he will ride on.
