Past Gas #164 - The History of the Baja 1000

By Donut Media

The Baja 1000 is an arduous 1000-mile drive through the remote and desolate Baja Peninsula. For many, it wasn’t a question of when you finished, but if you’d finish at all. The route is treacherous, and so is the weather. Drivers face flash floods and fog. Scorching heat and freezing cold. Rocks and boulders and unpredictable herds of animals. And if one broke down or got injured… the journey might cost a driver their life. How did a publicity stunt organized by a Hollywood stuntman grow into such a prestigious race? What has kept drawing racers back to the Baja 1000 for the last 55 years? And what makes the Baja 1000 one of the most treacherous races in the world? Today on Past Gas, the story of the Baja 1000.
