2018 Baja 1000: The Results Are In

The Baja 1000 has once again heralded in the off-road racing heroes for the year. It was as grueling and unforgiving as ever, and saw the familiar and outrageous return – from silt beds that ate up buggies, to spectators driving the wrong way down roads, the 2018 Baja 1000 kept the flame alive.

This year’s competition was an 800-plus-mile loop race, starting and finishing in Ensenada. Of the 285 total racers, 178 finished, for a completion rate of 62.5 percent. Racers from all over the world flew in to prove their mettle, ranging from Guam, Belgium, Finland, Italy, and more. For American racers, representatives of 41 states made the trek down to Baja.

The official results from the 2018 Baja 1000 are here, and are laid out below numbering first to fifth place, starting with their name and ending with their elapsed time. We’ve selected from the classes Trophy Truck, Trophy Truck Legend, Class 1, and Pro UTV FI. We tip our hats to the winners and all of those who competed this year.
