The Children's Tumor Foundation Racing4Research program is expanding their racing season to include off-road racing in the 46th Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 this November 14 - 17. Porsche factory driver Patrick Long will join forces with former Baja winners Rafael Navarro IV and Vic Bruckman in the CTF/R4R Pete's Camp Racing SCORE Lites Jimco-VW buggy (hey, it's a VW, so it's all in the family).
“I had always hoped that my sports-car career would be able to pave the way to drive in other disciplines,” Long said. “To be able to win the Rolex 24, and to win Le Mans, Petit and Sebring. The Baja 1000 would be right up there with my big endurance victories. It's a huge race, it carries a lot of weight. The Baja 1000 has been on my racing bucket list for a long time.”
