Corona, Calif. —Drivers and their crews made their way North for rounds 7&8 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. Little did they know that they would be making their way into a war zone. This weekends races were held at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, just outside of Salt Lake City. With a tight course that provided countless action packed moments for fans that packed the stands full. Summertime is in full swing in Tooele and with 90 degree heat filling the air and the hot sun beating down on the course, this would cause the track to dry out quickly and leave dust hanging in the air, which provided fans a course that turned into a war zone just laps into the races.

Las Vegas, NV – If you go up against BJ Baldwin you better have both barrels loaded. Preparation, race strategy and mad skills behind the wheel are needed; three things BJ excels at. When an opportunity to run both the 46th Tecate SCORE Baja 500 in his Monster Energy Trophy Truck and Formula Off Road in the #97 Toyo Tires truck the next day at the X Games in Austin, Texas BJ jumped at the chance.
First on the agenda was to prerun the Baja 500 course. SCORE International mixed things up this year; running the course in the opposite direction than usual. The drivers would head south from the start in Ensenada along the coast, climb over the mountains to the gulf side of the peninsula and then race north before turning back towards Ensenada for the finish. Prerunning is critical to a good race but it also allows BJ a chance to check out the incredible scenery, hand out Monster Energy stickers to the kids and eat some tacos.

Burnett, Kyle Chaney and our GNCC 4×4 Pros have been outstanding this year” said Jeff Leclerc, Racing Project Leader, Can-Am. “With wins in gnarly terrain like Baja, the challenging GNCC series in Ohio and at the Maine NEATV-MX race, our racers, once again, proved – no matter the Can-Am vehicle — our guys will challenge for the win at every event.”
