Team HUMMER H3 2008 Rod Hall

This year’s running of the SCORE International Tecate Baja 500 is especially important for Team HUMMER as its owner and stock-class H3 driver Rod Hall looks for his 18th Baja 500 class victory. Hall enters the race tied for the record of total class wins at 17 – and currently leads the SCORE mini stock class in season points.

“With 12 years of experience racing stock-class Hummers, I believe that they are the most capable off-road vehicles straight from the factory,” said Rod Hall. “In fact, the H3 Alpha and H3 were the first stock-class vehicles to finish the 2007 Baja 1000.”

Also entering the race are Rod Hall’s two sons, Josh and Chad. Josh will be piloting the HUMMER H2 SUT, and Chad the HUMMER H3 Alpha. Mike Levine from PickupTrucks.com will be joining Josh – so be sure to check out his coverage of the race which runs May 30th – June 1st.

A HUMMER race truck of a different kind will also be competing – racing celebrity Robby Gordon and Team Dakar USA will enter their purpose-built H3 in the Baja 500 Trophy Truck class. Gordon and the H3 most recently finished 10th overall in the inaugural Central Europe Rally, winning two specials in the fifth and sixth stages of the race.

    hey guys good luck in the race if you have some time can you show off a litle info on the up grade to the suspension. I know it has the fox susp products but was interested in the possible upgrade of the torsion bars or tie rods? thanks

    Thanks for the comment, bpos. All team HUMMER vehicles use the stock tie rods.
