Gordon Geared Up For Baja

Proving once again that he never tires of racing, Robby Gordon left last weekend’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway and headed straight for Ensenada, Mexico to compete in the 41st annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, one of the most grueling off-road races in the world.

Gordon, a three-time overall winner, will be piloting his No. 77 Monster Energy/Toyo Tires Chevrolet CK 1500 when the race commences on Friday, November 21st.

The Baja 1000 is the world’s longest non-stop and most famous desert race. This year’s race will be a challenging 631.35-mile journey around the northern Baja California peninsula, beginning and ending in Ensenada. It will be trying even to the most skilled racers as they weave their way over rocky desert landscape and mountain terrain.

“This year’s course is very technical, very rough and very fast, which plays right into our team’s strengths," Gordon said. "We’ve been in Mexico pre-running the course over the past few weeks. Having covered the course twice, I feel very confident of our chances. With the assistance of both our Off-road and NASCAR team personnel, we have a really good support staff in place."

The green flag will drop for the car and truck classes at approximately 10:30 a.m. on Friday. All starters will have a 31-hour time limit to finish the legendary race. Over 300,000 spectators are expected to line this year’s course to watch over 375 entries from around the world compete in the historic race.
