Lani Trejo’s Baja Experience

Two years ago, on a shoot for Volkswagen, we met Jim Graham and a few members of the Desert Dingo Race Team. From that moment on it was my dream to cover a Class 11 race team make a run at the Baja 1000. I was fascinated by the tenacity and pure determination it has […]

Inspiration. What inspires you? Who inspires you? It doesn’t necessarily have to be a person, but a type of person from whom you draw inspiration. During my experience with the Project Baja team I drew inspiration from every individual I met. I joined the team as a Johnny-come- lately chase crew member who flew in […]

Emme Hall’s Baja Experience

I have to write a story about my experience for Roadshow and even a week and a half out from the Baja 1000, I have no idea how I am going to do it. I’ve done a lot of off-roading, from the Gazelle Rally in Morocco to the Mint 400 in Las Vegas to the […]

This whole experience started for me about a year and a half ago standing in my kitchen in Seattle. Our really good friend Michelle was visiting and she brought along a new guy, and things where sounding pretty serious.

Josh McGuckin’s Baja Experience.

Again!? Yeah, again. We competed in the Baja 1000 in 2014 and when we got home it took a little time to believe that we would actually be able to pull off going back. This is such a monumental task and it is hard to explain just how much work it really is. Of course, […]

Well, we did it. All the odds were against us- in fact one website had us at 9 to 1 but we did it, suckers! We were finishers at the 50th Anniversary of the Baja 1000. It’s difficult for people who don’t live for racing and haven’t experienced such a thing to have a concept […]

Josh and Emme lead off the race, Matt Fisher and Evan took the next shift and Matt Wilson and Nick took the […]
