Foothill Ranch, Calif. – After more than two years of creation, filming and overcoming several near-terminal setbacks, the production team and off-road pioneers behind the film Baja Social Club presented by General Tire enjoyed a highly successful weekend at the recent Off-Road Expo in Pomona, California.
Taking place at the historic Fairplex facility that also hosts two major NHRA race weekends, the Off-Road Expo drew a crowd of nearly 50,000 enthusiastic fans over two days, as well as a large contingent of off-road industry professionals and VIPS. The weekend included a display of historic Baja race cars as part of the Oakley/Arciero Sports sales trailer and an autograph signing for the public in the Expo’s main hall.
Following several film and live demonstration by DragonFire, Despain kicked off the film “sneak peek” portion of the evening with opening remarks followed by a short Q & A session with Executive Producer and Baja historian Marty Fiolka. This was proceeded by more questions for Wilson, Meyers and Evans, who joined Despain on stage. Film sponsor Oakley then surprised Wilson, Meyers and Evans with specially-made Baja Social Club watches presented by Despain and Oakley’s Chris Petrillo.
