Any off-roader worth their Mickey Thompson tires knows about the Baja 1000.

Baja 500
The off-road community descended upon Baja Mexico this past weekend and in true Baja fashion, it was a race of both triumph and tragedy.  If you’ve never experienced a race in Baja before, mere photos won’t do it justice but here are some that give a pretty accurate representation of the Baja 500.

Charging whoops
It’s often said that the greatest challenge in Baja is not other racers but the course itself.  That is definitely true of the San Felipe 250 course, which is littered with countless huge off-road whoop sections.  Check out this racetruck taking them on at speed!

Unless you’re a track and field athlete or a speed skater, you’ve probably heard the phrase “rubbing is racing.” In desert racing, there are no umpires or officials to call foul, and if you’re one to get bent out of shape when someone brushes you on their way by during an off-road race, you might want to consider an alternative sport.
