TORONTO, Ontario, Canada – Following its hugely successful debut at X Games Austin, the SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by TRAXXAS series returns to competition at the Honda Indy Toronto this weekend.

Las Vegas, NV – If you go up against BJ Baldwin you better have both barrels loaded. Preparation, race strategy and mad skills behind the wheel are needed; three things BJ excels at. When an opportunity to run both the 46th Tecate SCORE Baja 500 in his Monster Energy Trophy Truck and Formula Off Road in the #97 Toyo Tires truck the next day at the X Games in Austin, Texas BJ jumped at the chance.
First on the agenda was to prerun the Baja 500 course. SCORE International mixed things up this year; running the course in the opposite direction than usual. The drivers would head south from the start in Ensenada along the coast, climb over the mountains to the gulf side of the peninsula and then race north before turning back towards Ensenada for the finish. Prerunning is critical to a good race but it also allows BJ a chance to check out the incredible scenery, hand out Monster Energy stickers to the kids and eat some tacos.

It marked the first time in the 105-year history of the famed Brickyard that trucks raced on the property.
