BJ Baldwin has never made it a secret that one of his idols is the “Ironman” himself, Ivan Stewart. Baldwin has done his best to emulate Stewart’s Ironman approach to off-road racing, as he’s gone on to earn one Baja 500 win and two Baja 1000 victories much like his idol – without a second driver helping shoulder the load.

Baldwin will be formally unveiled at the AMA Supercross finale in Las Vegas this Saturday as the new “Ironman” for Toyota, which has just signed Baldwin to a multi-year sponsorship. Baldwin will field a Tundra TRD Pro Trophy Truck this year in both SCORE International and Best in the Desert races.
