Congratulations to the Hall Racing USA Team. Over the weekend they finished 6th in the Trophy Truck Class and 30th overall at the infamous 2020 SCORE Baja 1000.
The team powered through 898 miles of grueling Mexican Baja Peninsula to finish the race without any time penalty. That’s extremely impressive. From start to finish it took Team Hall USA just under 26 hours to finish the course.
Team Hall competed in the Trophy Truck Spec class. The full-size truck class is limited to two wheel drive and sealed crate engines producing a maximum of 525-horsepower. Hall Racing is using a LS3 crate engine producing exactly that amount.
The faster SCORE Trophy Truck Unlimited Class, which populates the first five finishes for the Baja 1000 all use unlimited engines producing up to 850-horsepower. Unlimited trucks can also be four-wheel-drive. So when you see that first truck to finish did it almost 6 hours faster than Team Hall, just think about the horsepower advantage.
For Chad and Austin Hall to finish in 25.5 hours is fantastically fast and grueling all at the same time.

The course for the 2020 running of the Baja 1000:
Earlier this year I personally had the chance to ride with Hall Racing during the 2020 MINT 400. It was super intense. The idea of riding in those conditions for 25 hours is breath-taking. I was beat up after only 45 minutes in the back seat!
