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.
Former Indycar driver, NASCAR driver/team owner, short-course race series promoter and desert racing superstar Robby Gordon set the fastest qualifying time in the featured SCORE Trophy Truck division during the special qualifying session held at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in conjunction with SEMA week Tuesday night. Gordon will start in the number one spot for next week’s 47th annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000.

In an attempt to win a bet with playboy Dan Bilzerian, BJ Baldwin gets dripped off via helicopter at his 800-horsepower trophy truck with one goal: Get down through the town in Baja and down to the beach to meet up with Dan and a number of bikini-clad ladies in under 20 minutes.
Not long ago, Toyo Tires brought a new off-road tire to the market in the all-new Open Country R/T. We’ve had a chance to put the tire to the test ourselves and came away impressed (check out the review link below). As Toyo notes, the tire is designed for off-road performance blended with on-road comfort. The R/T is essentially made to be more in line with a mud-terrain in terms of off-road performance but more like an all-terrain in terms of being quieter and smoother on the highway than a mud tire.
