Q: My girlfriend thinks we missed the Baja 1000. Could you let us know the next one?

A: The next Baja 1000 is scheduled November 15-18, 2006. Entry fees weren’t available at press time but be sure to bookmark the web site,, for future updates.

The popular desert race is going into its 39th year sand-pitting and rump thumping its contenders as they cover over 1,000 miles of dry desert passing across vados which are metre deep streams, livestock and giant maytags which are boulders that sit close to the path. Drivers use a car, truck, ATV and motorcycle for negotiating the race.

In 2004, only 198 of 284 racers finished within the 40 hour time limit.
