Montclair, CA: Heading into November, the Green Army Motorsports team was focused on continuing the hunt for the top spot in the Inaugural World Championship Chase. Countless hours were spent at the Southern California shop preparing the #85 Jimco Trophy Truck to battle the best for the top spot in the 46th Running of the SCORE International Baja 1000. Not only was Justin focused on preparing the truck, he was busy preparing mentally and physically by spending 2 hours a day, 6 days a week at the gym. Having won this race multiple other times in different classes, driver Justin Davis knew the preparation at home would be pointless without spending weeks pre-running the peninsula to see what Baja had in store for race day. The advance team headed off to Baja California shortly after the first of the month to make the peninsula their home until race day.
Challenges pre-running confirmed the rumors that this would one of the most difficult Baja 1000 courses ever laid out. The 2013 Baja 1000 course presented mile after mile of rough sections, technical sections, silt beds and every other type of challenge people associate with a race through this beautiful strip of land. Based on his 2nd place standing in the World Championship Standings, Justin revisited his original strategy to solo the race and made the decision to invite another Baja veteran to drive a stretch of the race. The Green Army Motorsports Team knew that the bonus points involved with this race would likely mean if any of the top 5 in the World Championship standings won the race, they would also take the season points title. Multi-discipline driver Danny Ebberts was called and he was in Baja the next day to begin pre-running his section.
