Badoink Baja 500 1 220x146 Team BaDoink Falls to Baja at the 2014 SCORE Baja 500BAJA , JULY 9, 2014     With an experience of a lifetime under their belt before the green flag even dropped, Trophy Spec #869 driver of record Tim Whale and business partner Mark Hoashi successfully started the 46th running of the 2014 SCORE Baja 500. The Trophy Spec truck started 10th in class and moved up to second in class within the first 100 miles!  The outcome ended with the Baja superseding their podium finish at race mile 147 where a silt rut swapped out the rear end, slowly rolling the truck over consequently bending the rear tracking bar.  “This is a huge defeat for me, I think we are officially out at the moment,” said Tim Whale.  “The Driven Experience group has given us the opportunities to learn and it was up to us to finish.  They have done everything they could to get the truck running again, but as it sits right now, we are going to have to call the race and head back to Ensenada.” Read More→

Braver than most,BJ Baldwin, dominated Baja in a King Shock equipped Chevrolet Silverado Trophy Truck and crossed the finish line during the early hours of Saturday morning on November 16, 2013 to claim the overall victory.

With 24 inches of travel up front, and 34 inches of travel in the rear by-way of FOX Racing suspension, we’re curious to see what this truck can do in the desert. For now, we’ll have to settle for some detail shots straight from SEMA 2013.  Read More→

2012 Laughlin Joe Bacal by Kevin Watts 220x146 Joe Bacal Takes New Lexus to Victory in SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge LAUGHLIN, Nevada, January 16, 2012 – Having endured a challenging 2011 off-road racing season, Joe Bacal brought his oven-fresh, factory-backed Lexus LX 570 to the 18th Annual SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge looking for a bit of redemption.  After narrowly missing victory on Saturday “by one corner,” Bacal set a marker on Sunday with an emphatic win in the Stock Full class against a feisty 2011 class champion.

“We did a lot of work on the new LX to address issues we uncovered in our first two seasons,” said Bacal.  “It paid off big in Laughlin–the truck really flies!  A lot of the new speed comes from an improved suspension, courtesy of King Shocks.” Read More→
