Poncho castro passes on.....

ATV desert racing professional, Alfonso "Poncho" Castro (last years Baja 1000 winner) was killed on Saturday while racing a local desert race in La Paz, Mexico. From what we know at this time, Poncho started the race. Three miles in he drove off a cliff and into heaven.

Poncho always stressed complete safety and rode extremely smart. He was a seasoned veteran with several years of desert racing experience under his belt. It's undetermined as to what made him crash down the cliff.

Poncho leaves behind his beautiful wife, Lupita Castro and his three year old son Alfonso.

Viewing services are Monday evening May 9 at San Ramon Funeral Hall in Rosarito, Mexico. The funeral will be there as well.

Poncho was kind, sincere and constantly went out of his way to help others. He was a genuine person with a heart of gold. He will be missed by many.
