Baja 1000: An All-New Trophy Truck Taking On The Baja Peninsula

The maiden voyage for any vehicle can bring a sigh of relief after all the long hours, but the road ahead can have many new challenges. Brenthel Industries just recently completed a brand new Trophy Truck for Richard Armstong of Full Bore Motorsports.

Does it get any better looking than this?

A project of any sort can take time and with a hard deadline of racing the 50th Baja 1000 comes with many long nights. Brenthel Industries has put in many 15 hour days leading up to the start of the race.

Oh hell ya!!! @brenthelindustries @toddleduc @t_donk 1/4 throttle 👊

Building a vehicle to get through the Baja desert is no easy feat especially knowing that less than half the vehicles that start the race will finish. This year’s course was laid out by SCORE to take no prisoners, it is going to beat teams, drivers, and vehicles more than ever.

Loaded with all the latest in off-road technology this truck is ready to tear up Baja. The truck features Method wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich Baja T/A KR3 tires, Rigid LED Lights, King shocks, CBR cooling system, Sparco seats, and PCI race radios.

On of our favorite things to do when looking at Trophy Trucks is looking for all the spare parts and locations for all the hardware.

The race this year is one for the record books. Stay tuned for a recap of the race to see how the team did and how the trucks held up against the Baja peninsula.
