Burnt SPOT Unit Survives Baja 1000 Race Truck Fire

We're just glad that Jason McNeil, Trophy Truck #50 driver in the Baja 1000 Race is ok! That's an amazing feat, considering looking at how his SPOT unit fared out after a truck fire got a hold of it. McNeil even finished 11th in the Trophy Truck Class after his truck burned! We received the unit at the office, fired it up and it seems to be working ok!
