Video: “Ballistic” BJ Baldwin Releases Recoil 2
Off-Road Racing Star Makes Mad Dash to Beach in Mexico
Racing action videos are now officially a thing, featuring such recognized personalities as Ken Block, Vaughn Gittin Jr., and others. However, some of the most exciting to watch and action-packed are those from off-road racing star “Ballistic” BJ Baldwin. Following up on the success of his first “Recoil” video, Baldwin has just released “Recoil 2,” in which he takes on a bet from his friend, Dan Bilzerian, that he can drive from the staging area near Ensenada, Mexico, to the beach. He has no more than 20 minutes to get there.
Needless to say, Baldwin doesn’t exactly obey all the traffic signs and regulations on his mad dash to the beach. Jumping over dirt berms, retaining walls, and hilly intersections, Baldwin catches air multiple times, and there’s plenty of slow-mo footage to add to the drama. Let’s just say his Trophy Truck’s long-travel suspension comes in handy during the drive.
To make things even more over the top, the video includes helicopters and beautiful bikini-clad women. The only soundtrack for the video, other than a little surf guitar at the end, is the beautiful music of the 800hp V-8. What more do you need? Check out the action-packed seven-minute video below!
