Fender Custom Shop director Mike Eldred and the Fender Racing team are entering the perilous Baja 1000, an off-road race that takes place on Mexico's Baja California Peninsula, Nov. 19-22.
The Fender Racing team will keep us all in the loop with daily blogs throughout the week, so keep checking back. (P.S. Fender Racing is competing in the Baja 1000 to raise money for the Fender Center. Please click here to participate!

Arrived safely yesterday, although we almost hit a dog on the way through Tijuana – just part of our on-going training process.
We got to the hotel and quickly discovered we were the only ones at this hotel. Kevin Necessary and the Fender Racing truck were supposed to be here two days ago. We called Kevin and he said they were heading out this morning because they had some rear axle problems.
Dogs are everywhere here, and one has become fast friends with us – or he's just amazed people are actually staying at this hotel.
Last night we ended up in a planning session at a local establishment. The people of Mexico are very friendly…especially the ladies.– The Fender Racing Team
