We just received word a few hours ago that the Toyota TRD Pro not only finished the Baja 1000, it won!

The most telling photo of the bunch shows the carnage from the 36-hour race.

A blurry pic of the finish.

Official race results are still unknown, but it looks like they really did push the truck (unlike the Ford F-150 mind you). Also, note: the result reflects how the truck did in its class and there is no overall champion with several different classes of vehicles competiting. We do know, the grueling race took the team 36 hours to finish. Nice job guys!

Check out our post on the 2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro for everything you need to know about the truck and the team.

      Randy,

      I was actually thinking how bad ass would it be if they DIDN’T fix it. I mean take it to auto shows in the same shape. Really show the carnage.

      • Randy says:

        They should not fix it; and send it on tour to all the dealers.

        I bet the dealers would “pay” to have that on display for a week on a car rack 50′ in the air.

        “Winner – Tundra”

        Of course start in Texas first LOL

    Looks like another Toyota finished in second in the Full size stock class too. Congrats Toyota! The other two entrants (a Ford and a Hummer) did not finished.

      Looks like the other Toyota entry was a 200 series Land Cruiser with a 5.7L V8 by Canguro Racing. Didn’t Joe Bacal run a Lexus LX570 (Lexus version of the Land Cruiser) in the Baja 1000 a couple of years in the stock full size class too and won? Looks like the 5.7L V8 is pretty stout and the Tundra bones are pretty tough too.

        Goldie,

        Yep, Joe ran a Lexus LX 570 in the race for years. I believe they parted ways in the spring. Interesting news about the “other” Toyota team. The pictures from that magazine make me jealous!

        -Tim

    Toyota trucks in 1st AND 2nd place! Ford and Hummer DNF’d!

  7. GUY says:

    Our race truck also raced in the Baja 1000 and finished. Our truck was stuck in silt when the 8199 truck clipped the front of our truck, destroying the Driver’s side of the Tundra. There was very little damage done to our truck, but I cant say the same for the Tundra… This all happened in the last leg of the race.
