BRAVING BAJA: 1000 MILES TO GLORY

CLICK HERE FOR ADDITIONAL DETAILS

To prove the durability of their motorcycles, America Honda sent its CL72 Scrambler on a 950 mile trek through rocks, sand washes, dry lake beds, mountain passes and paved roads. Fifty years later, that 1960s run is remembered for  initiating one of the most significant off-road races for both two and four wheeled vehicles in the world—the Baja 1000. Legendary racers Parnelli Jones, Dave Ekins and Bill Robertson Jr. will be honored at the Petersen Automotive Museum’s Baja tribute Dinner, one-day off-road show, and summer-long exhibition: Braving Baja, 1,000 Miles to Glory.
