An action-adventure documentary chronicling the most notorious and dangerous race in the world--the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. Rivaling the Indy 500 and 25 Hours of Daytona, the race across Baja's peninsula is unpredictable, grueling and raw--just like the uncharted American West of yesteryear. To capture the vast desert panoramas and intense action of the race, the film team utilized, fifty-five cameras, four helicopters, a four-passenger buggy camera car and a crew of over eighty people. Thousands of participants, generations of families and racing icons such as Robby Gordon, Mario Andretti, Jimmy Vasser and Motorcycle Supercross legend Mike Mouse McCoy joined together to experience the thrill and glory of the infamous race--an event of sheer human determination.

During the introduction of the drivers competing in the Baja 1000, Robbie and Mike Groff were incorrectly labeled. The actual order from left to right; Robbie Groff, Jimmy Vasser and Mike Groff. See more »

Unbelievable race footage from all perspectives. All the race vehicles are covered from the Motorcycles (my favorite), Trophy trucks and buggies to the Class 11 VW beetle Dana Brown more than captured the essence of the Baja race. You will feel as though you are there. The interviews only add to this great film by getting into the heads of those who have actually raced the Baja 1000. There is also some excellent bonus footage that MUST be watched! I bought the movie and watched it at least 4 times. This movie can be watched by just about any person, I would imagine even non race fans would like it. I say buy this movie and watch it, then tell everyone you know to do the same! I wish the movie was twice as long because you just don't want it to end!
