Rossi Makes Racing History with Dominant Baja 1000 Victory

NTT INDYCAR SERIES star Alexander Rossi added another winner’s trophy to his mantle and made motorsports history Friday evening as part of a class-winning team in the Baja 1000 off-road race. 709 Honda Ridgeline truck fielded by the Honda Off-Road Racing Team with team owner Jeff Proctor, Richard Glaszczak and Baja legend Steve Hengeveld, with navigator Evan Weller, to win Class 7 (unlimited V6-powered race trucks) honors in the 54th edition of the classic race. The off-road race in Baja California, Mexico, starts in the coastal city of Ensenada and finishes 1,226 miles south in La Paz. “What a wild ride this race, this event, is,” Rossi said. The victory in smooth style for Rossi and his team was a marked contrast to his first two years competing in the race. Jones won both at both Indy and Baja but didn’t finish in his only Daytona 24-hour appearance.
