El Cajon, Calif. – In one of the most grueling SCORE International Baja 1000 races to date Rob MacCachren’s #11 FOX-equipped Trophy Truck was first to cross the 1275-mile race’s finish line. Sharing driving duties from Ensenada to La Paz with Andy McMillin, the team conquered the hurricane-ravaged Baja terrain and bested over 200 competitors. With a total time of 22 hours, 31 minutes and 28 seconds, the team claimed victory nearly 29 minutes ahead of the next finisher.

In the race’s highly competitive and rapidly growing Side-by-Side class, 19 vehicles started but only nine made it to the finish line in La Paz. After more than 33 hours of racing, John Angal and Branden Sims’ #1919 UTV Inc. team emerged victorious. The team finished first in their Polaris RZR XP1000 equipped with FOX’s patented 2.5 & 3.0 PODIUM Internal Bypass shocks Reservoir DSC equipped XP1000, beating the second place Polaris-backed Jagged X team by 14 minutes.
