“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.
