Athletes who took victories in limited open-wheeled cars and big V8-powered trucks say winning races has become more about intense full-speed, all-out racing.

 2012 FOX off road desert championships push and test limits of man and machineEL CAJON, Calif.  While no one would ever call off-road desert racing easy, its evolution has seen the races become more challenging and strenuous on both the drivers and the equipment. The long and diverse list of 2012 championship-winning athletes show what it takes to win in some of the most demanding racing styles in the world.

Running everything from 68-horsepower 1/2-1600 cars to 800-horsepower trick trucks, each class of off-road race vehicle has its own unique demands. This year’s desert champions relied on their suspension systems, among other things, to outperform the competition. Read More→

Bacal Solos the 1,122-Mile Race Distance Virtually Trouble Free

2012 Baja 1000 Joe 1 220x142 Joe Bacal and Lexus Capture Second Consecutive SCORE Baja 1000 “Peninsula Run” VictoryLA PAZ, Mexico (November 21, 2012) – For the second time in three racing seasons,  Joe Bacal drove his Lexus LX 570 to the Stock Full-class victory over the punishing 1,122-mile “peninsula” course in the 45th Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 on Saturday.  But his 2012 triumph was much different than the 2010 edition which also ran the long route from Ensenada to La Paz; This time Bacal drove every mile of the event and his Lexus ran perfect the entire race distance, not even requiring a tire change.

Taking the lead from the start, Bacal held off his challengers until a rough section through San Felipe where he drove conservatively to preserve his truck for the longer run. But he lost the lead only briefly before taking over for good.       Read More→
