HUMMER Wins Tecate SCORE Baja 500

HUMMER Wins Tecate SCORE Baja 500


SCORE Baja 500

Jun 7, 2007
By: Press Release
Off-Road Racing


DETROIT - Team HUMMER owner Rod Hall and son Chad Hall teamed with navigator Jake Povey to earn yet another SCORE Baja 500 victory, piloting their stock mini class H3 to the finish line in 16:49:34 hours at the 2007 SCORE International Tecate Baja 500, June 2, in Ensenada, Mexico.

For the second consecutive year, the Team HUMMER H3 was the only mini-stock class vehicle to finish the grueling Baja 500 and this year crossed the finish line before the full stock finishing Ford F-250 and Dodge 2500. With the 2007 victory, Hall is tied for the most class wins in the history of this race with Ivan Stewart, who won 17 in his career.

"This year's course was extremely grueling and treacherous," said Chad Hall, who piloted the H3 from mile 110 to the finish. "Fortunately, the H3 is designed to excel in these types of terrain conditions."

Hall's other son, Josh Hall, entered his full-stock class H2 with navigator Sam Cothrun. Hall and the H2 were leading the full stock class until mile 200, where an issue with the front axle housing took the H2 out of the race.

"The Baja 500 has been an extremely difficult race over the last couple years," said Josh Hall, 2006 Baja 1000 full stock class winner. "The team did a great job supporting the vehicle, but we just couldn't get the problem fixed in time."

Josh and the H2 are the defending full stock winners at Team HUMMER's next race, the Best in the Desert Racing Association "Vegas to Reno," August 23-25, 2007.

at last years baja 1000 I raced wheel to wheel with Rod at about mile 900 through some nasty silt and then for another 5 miles we swapped paint. I ended up betting them to the finish by a bit. Fun racing against the legend.

It will be better now that we have a Hummer tech section with H2 owners on pirate
