The 2008 SCORE International racing season is coming to an end, and all that's left is the Tecate Baja 1000 race, scheduled for November 21-22. The infamous Baja 1000 is a 630-mile loop that leads the off-road vehicles through rocky terrain in Baja California, Mexico. The race begins and ends in Ensenada in Baja California. Currently poised to clinch the 2008 stock mini and stock full classes' seasons points championships is Rod Hall Racing's Team Hummer, the reigning 2007 champions.
Leading the way for Team Hummer is team owner Rod Hall, driver for the stock mini-class Hummer H3. Hall has dominated the 2008 season with class victories at the Laughlin Desert Challenge, Baja 250, and Baja 500. He only needs to start the upcoming Baja 1000 to earn his third consecutive season title in the stock mini class. However, Hall will be seeking victory to defend his Baja 1000 victory in 2007 and to secure his record-setting 20th Baja 1000 class victory.
Representing Team Hummer's stock full class are Hall's sons, Chad and Josh Hall. Chad Hall is the driver of the H3 Alpha and a six-time Baja 1000 class winner. He has secured class victories in the Laughlin Desert Challenge and Baja 500 and is also the current defending stock full Baja 1000 champion. Josh will be driving the team's 2008 Hummer H2 SUT. He has won the 2008 Baja 250 for his class and had amassed a three-year Baja 1000 winning streak in his 2003 Hummer H2 prior to 2007.
A testament to his amazing durability, Rod Hall remains the only car or truck driver to have competed in every Baja 1000 race since it was first held in 1967.
