Robby Gordon ~ SCORE Baja 1000 Off-Road Endurance Race


Robby Gordon his testing trophy truck for Baja 1000 in Parker Az 2008.

Now that the NASCAR Championship is over and we all guessed, I mean, ” I predicted on July 24th  that Jimmie Johnson would win; we can focus on something exciting…

And unpredictable.

Robby Gordon will once again show us that he is the most versatile and talented driver in NASCAR, by competing in the 41stannual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, one of the most grueling off-road races in the world. We all hope to see Robby and his No. 77 Monster Energy / Toyo Tires Chevy CK 1500, celebrate his fourth victory when the race commences on Friday, November 21st.

The Baja 1000 is the world’s longest non-stop and most famous desert race. It is a test of endurance of mind, body, spirit, and machine. This year’s race, beginning and ending in Ensenada, winds and weaves it’s way across rocky desert landscape and mountain terrain. The grueling loop is a 631.35-mile trek around the northern Baja California peninsula. Here is the map of the entire course.

The race starts tomorrow and runs through Nov. 23rd. The Green flag drops for the car and truck classes at approx. 10:30 am PST. The competitors will have 31 hours to complete the brutal and arduous course.

BFGoodrich Tires and Volkswagen of America is bringing a new first-of-its-kind online experience designed around bringing the captivating sights, sounds and real-time information of the 41stannual SCORE Baja 1000 to everyone. Combined with partnerships through SPOT Tracker, Aura 360, and, the new online experience includes GPS tracking for all drivers in the SCORE Trophy-Truck, 1, 8, Stock Mini and 5/1600 Classes in the race plus live and streaming video. The Web site is now live at with a countdown clock. Race tracking will begin at 6 a.m. PT/ 9 a.m. ET on Nov. 21.

Robby Gordon is a phenom when it comes to kickin’ butt and jamming on an off road race. I am also watching Robby’s Team Dakar USA team mate, Ballistic B.J Baldwin, himself a bit of an Off Road Talent. Healthy competition is good amongst buddies. B.J. can learn a lot from Robby.

I am excited to be back. I know a lot of NASCAR fans get a little down when the season ends and feel a little lost until Daytona.

Not me. It’s Robby Gordon spotlight time.

While you wait for the live coverage to begin, watch Robby give those shocks a jolt, then tell me you wouldn’t want to be there.

Ride along here with the SCORE Internation OFF Road Racing Prerun!

Tally Ho! Kill ‘da Wabbits!

( Oh my! How exciting! I hope Dakar isn’t canceled again!)
