Ride once again with the author, Rod Koch, and share his adventures as he struggles to gain another victory in the epic Baja 1000. His fi rst autobiography, 7 Years from Start to Finish, covered the early years of the Baja races from 1968-1975, up to the moment when the author became a fi rst place winner in that incredible endurance race down and around the Baja California peninsula. When the Green Flag Drops conti nues those adventures in off -road racing through the 1980s not just in Baja, but back in the U. S. A. with events like the Parker 400, Casinos 350, Mint 400 and the Riverside Off -Road Championships. The author then makes the transiti on into the intensity of the Pro-Rally race scene, bringing the reader along with him as he takes on some of the best and fastest off -road and performance rally drivers in North America. The action streaks across the High Sierras from San Francisco to Reno, from Las Vegas to Laughlin, Nevada, from Carson City to Virginia City to Yerington, through the rain, mud, snow, even the heat of the Mojave Desert near Palm Springs and east of Indio, wherever the dirt mountain and desert roads of the performance and Pro-Rally circuit goes.
