Sixty-Four-year-old Larry Roeseler will attempt to race as the solo driver in this year’s SCORE Baja 1000. Roeseler will campaign the number 43 Baja Jerky Trophy Truck. Roeseler has been racing in Baja since his first finish in 1972.
“I am thrilled to be taking part in the 54th Baja 1000,” said Larry Roeseler. “I finished my first Baja race in 1972 and it is such an honor to continue pursuing my passion after all these years. On behalf of the Baja Jerky Racing Team, I want to thank all of our fans for the support going into this race. Baja, Mexico holds such a special place in my heart and is the inspiration behind Baja Jerky and the Baja Jerky Racing Team. This race can be grueling and attempting to solo it is no easy task, but with the assistance of my co-driver and navigator Eric Brandt, I am up for the challenge!”
Roeseler won the SCORE Baja 500 this year after both McMillin’s received penalties. This will be a massive undertaking for the Baja veteran. The course covers 1200 miles of Baja’s roughest and toughest terrain. The race will start in Ensenada and finish in La Paz.
