Team HUMMER Extends Winning Streak In Baja

Team HUMMER once again demonstrated why it's one of the most successful teams in off-road racing, as Team HUMMER driver Josh Hall piloted his H2 to its second consecutive Baja 1000 Stock Full class win at the 39th annual SCORE Tecate Baja 1000. Not to be outdone by his son, team owner Rod Hall, piloted his Team HUMMER H3 to a 3rd place Mini Stock class finish, securing the 2006 SCORE Mini Stock class points championship.

Josh and co-riders (Sam Cothrun, Reno, Nev./ Thad Stump, Gilbert, Ariz./ Sean Holman, Huntington Beach, Calif.) completed the grueling 1,047.8 miles of this year’s race in 26:30:45 hours, averaging a speed of 39.65 miles per hour. Hall, who drove the entire race himself, finished more than five hours ahead of the nearest stock full class competitor.

Hall’s victory marks his third Baja 1000 class victory and the 11th Baja 1000 class win for Team HUMMER. It also represents the 26th class win for the Hall family, further securing their place as the winningest family in Baja 1000 history.

Team HUMMER owner Rod Hall marked his 39th Baja 1000 with an eventful 3rd place mini stock class finish following a series of unfortunate incidents that began with the vehicle rolling after 12 miles of racing.

Hall, his co-drivers (Emily Miller, Crested Butte, Colo./Mike Winkel, Reno, Nev.), and co-riders (Susan Crandell, Cornwall on Hudson, NY/ Rick Pewe, Thousand Oaks, Calif./ Jake Povey, Reno, Nev.) piloted the H3 across the finish in 36:37:14 hours.

Hall’s 3rd place finish was enough to secure the 2006 SCORE Mini Stock class championship, following his class victories at this year’s SCORE Baja 500 and Primm 300. Hall’s finish also continues his streak as the only person to have raced every Baja 1000 in a four-wheeled vehicle in the 39-year history of the event.
