"Pistol" Pete Sohren Baja 1000 Race Report

“Pistol”Pete Takes 4th Place in Trophy Truck at the Baja 1000

Cabo San Lucas (Mexico) – “I can’t believe we finished” screamed a very excited and surprised Pete Sohren at the finish line of the 40th anniversary of the SCORE Baja 1000 in Cabo San Lucas Mexico. “Pistol” Pete and a team of less than 10 people including 1 navigator, a couple of co-riders, 3 chase teams and 1 co-driver got the #2 Schampa/Maxxis Trophy Truck off the starting line in Ensenada to the finish line 1,296.39 miles later in Cabo San Lucas. It was an amazing finish. “We nursed a broken third member for 100 miles” Pete said about his troubled rear end axle on the Gieser built Trophy Truck. This was Pete’s best finish in his history of racing the SCORE Baja 1000. At the finish line the team celebrated with “Pistol” Pete spraying champagne at cheering fans. His sponsor Andy Meyers- owner of Schampa clothing looked on smiling and said “you guys made it, congratulations!” The team took 4th place in the Trophy Truck division for this historic race. The next race for the #2 Schampa/Maxxis Trophy Truck will be in the SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge in Laughlin, Nevada in January of 2008.
