Robby Gordon Motorsports crosses into Mexico

Baja Racing EXCLUSIVELY is following Robby Gordon Motorsports into the Baja 500 2008 in Ensenada this weekend. The team has crossed into Mex this morning at the Tecate border crossing.


CHARLOTTE, NC (May 27, 2008) - Three-time Baja 500 champion Robby Gordon will return to Ensenada, Mexico this week to power his fierce Monster Energy / Toyo Tires Hummer in the 40th Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500, the second-oldest desert race in the world. Gordon has claimed three overall and four class wins in this race. Gordon stated, “This year we are going to the Baja 500 on a mission to not only win the race, but to gain more experience in the Monster Energy / Toyo Tires Hummer for the 2009 Dakar Rally, which is only seven months away. It will be interesting to see how the Hummer’s unrestricted 700hp engine performs. This should be a fun race and a beneficial practice run for the 2009 Dakar Rally. The more we run the Hummer, the better it gets.”
