San Marcos, CA – Baja Designs OnX LED Lights shine the way for Vildosola Racing to claim the overall victory at the 45th SCORE Tecate Baja 1000 race. The dominant win, finishing over 15 minutes ahead of the next racer, also marked Baja Designs as the only lighting manufacturer to win the grueling race with only LED lights shining the way – no HID lights.

Baja Designs’ ability to make their proprietary American-Made LED lighting technology shine further and brighter convinced the Vildosola Racing team to test and ultimately choose BD lights for their Trophy Truck. Vildosola Racing team joins other Baja champions like McMillin Racing, Menzies Motorsports, and JCR Honda in choosing BD Lights for their racing efforts.

LA PAZ, Mexico—For the second time in three years, Mexico’s father and son race team of Gus Vildosola and Gus Vildosola Jr have etched their names again on the granite history of the world’s most legendary desert race along with the team of Colton Udall/Timmy Weigand/David Kamo who added their names to motorsports history by capturing the overall 4wheel and 2wheel victories in the 1121.55-mile 45th Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 desert race down Mexico’s mysteriously magical Baja Califonria Peninsula from Ensenada to La Paz. The season-finale of the five-race 2012 SCORE Desert Series ended Saturday.

Gustavo, 59, and Gustavo Jr, 30, of Mexicali, Mexico, repeated the history they made in this race in 2010 when they became the first Mexican national team to capture the overall title in the granddaddy of all desert racing in their No. 21, Red Bull Vildosola Racing Ford F-150. With Gustavo Jr driving large starting and finishing sections of the course and his father Gus driving a small section in the center of the course, the dedicated pair covered the exasperating course in 19 hours and 45 minutes, averaging a strong 56.79 miles per hour.

The Vildosola team also recorded the fastest time on the course for all vehicles, including motorcycles, which have recorded the fastest time in 36 of the 45-year history of the race.
