HUMMER off-road racing teams bring their
winning traditions to the Baja peninsula once again as Rod Hall
Racing's Team HUMMER and Robby Gordon Off-Road prepare their HUMMER
desert race trucks to tackle this year's 40th Anniversary SCORE International Tecate Baja 500, May 30-June 1, in Ensenada, Mexico.
2008 marks a special year for Team HUMMER as owner and stock-class H3 driver Rod Hall, 70, seeks his record-setting 18th Baja 500 class victory. Joining Hall are his two sons, Josh and Chad, entering their full-stock class H2 SUT and H3 Alpha.
Team HUMMER owner and pilot of the #760 mini-stock class H3 is a living
legend in the off-road racing world. His relentless and unfailing
driving ability has earned him a record 19 career wins at the Baja 1000
and the distinction of being the only driver in history to win the Baja
1000 overall in a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Moreover, Hall today remains
the only person to have raced every Baja 1000 in a four-wheeled vehicle
in the 40-year history of the event.

mini stock class winner in 2006 and 2007. Hall currently leads the
SCORE mini stock class in season points with class wins at the Laughlin
Desert Challenge and Baja 250.
12 years of experience racing stock-class Hummers, I believe that they
are the most capable off-road vehicles straight from the factory," said
Rod Hall. "In fact, the H3 Alpha and H3 were the first stock-class
vehicles to finish the 2007 Baja 1000."
HUMMER H3 Alpha driver, Chad Hall, enters the 2008 race as points
leader in the full-stock class. Hall and the 2008 H3 Alpha were the
first stock class vehicle to finish the 2007 Baja 1000, and Hall has a
2008 class victory at SCORE's Laughlin Desert Challenge.

returns to Baja in his full-stock class, 2008 HUMMER H2 SUT. He enters
the 2008 race with a class victory at the Baja 250. Josh teamed with
Rod in the 2007 Baja 1000 to earn the mini-stock class victory and
become the second stock-class vehicle to finish the 2007 race.
