Driven Experiences gave two clients with a dream to race Baja an intensive two week drivers training between Driven Experiences training facility at Gateway Canyons Resort in Colorado, the deserts of Barstow California and a full week in Baja pre-running.   The team felt confidence that the clients had all the tools to be successful at the wave of the green flag.

“It’s been a good experience.  I’m excited that we got them to this point and now we just need to get them starting the race in the morning.  It has been a journey for sure, but I think it’s a testament to our crew getting the job done.  We have a solid truck and a solid crew chasing, so now I am excited to get the race going,” said Andrew Hendricks, Driven Experiences’ President.
