What do Mexico, tequila, vintage and rally cars, honored tradition, dune buggies, dust, trucks, motorcycles, mechanics, TrophyLites, endless spectators, fearless drivers, desert beauty, Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez have in common?

The NORRA Mexican Baja 1000 better defined is the National Off-Road Racing Association’s premier off-road race held on the Mexico Baja Peninsula, a 775 mile stretch of land with the Pacific Ocean on the West and the Sea of Cortez on the East.
