Ensenada, Baja California Mexico – The SCORE International Baja 1000 (B1K), is known as the granddaddy of off-road racing. It started as a mere challenge to see who could get to La Paz in the shortest possible time and has turned into one of the most grueling and competitive races on earth. Several drivers have won multiple times; a few have done it back to back. No single driver has won three straight. That is the challenge that lies ahead for BJ Baldwin. BJ has won back to back in his Monster Energy, Toyo Tires, Hoonigan, Method Race Wheels, King Shocks, Rigid Industries and Red Kap Work Clothes Trophy Truck; driving the entire race without relief. At the 47th annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, he will be out to make history with his third straight win.
