Hummer comes out on top in Baja 1000

Hummer H3 Baja

The 672.85-mile-long Baja 1000 race has wrapped up in the States, and 328 starters were culled back to just a handful of winners in various classes. The premier events were taken by Andy and Scott McMillin in the trophy truck category, in a modded Chevrolet Silverado.

The motorcycle category was won by a three-way team of Kendall Norman, Timmy Weigand, and Quinn Cody, who crossed the line about 45 minutes before the McMillin’s did.

Behind them, two legends of the race practically had the Stock Mini class to themselves: 20-time winner Rod Hall, along with Emily Miller, and Mike Winkel in a Hummer H3 took on Robert Ditner, Joe Nolan, Kez Ziesemer, and three-time winner Ivan Stewart in a 2010 Toyota 4Runner. Of three starters in the class, these two vehicles were the only ones to finish, and the issue came down to a tight finish with Hall’s Hummer suffering a long repair stop early in the race and he only passed Stewart’s 4Runner for first place just thirty miles from the finish.
