It’s another NORRA 1000 in the books for Drivers Inc.’s Paul Dallenbach.

Paul and his driving teammate, Chip Griffith, headed down to Mexico for the annual off-road event, hoping to put their name into the winners column of “The Happiest Race on Earth.”

For two days, they were looking pretty good. As Paul posted on his Instagram account:

Alas, on Day 3, the race’s rugged terrain went head-to-head with Paul’s car. The outcome was predictable, as Chip explained.

There is always next year—and the Norra 500, which is coming up in the not-too-distant future.
