After nearly 36 hours of competition in the Stock Full size truck class the Foutz Motorsports team finished the grueling Baja 1000. Ending up 3rd place in class after racing for 854 miles of the roughest terrain known to man in a stock 2017 Ford Raptor Super Cab truck is a huge accomplishment for the team. Racing against other heavily modified vehicles with the stock raptor was like taking a knife to a gun fight in many cases. The team was prepared and would not quit making it the entire distance with only about 40 seconds to spare on the 36 hour time limit. Just finishing this the longest off-road race in the world is a huge accomplishment for sure.
The team brought the Ford Raptor to contingency at 5:00 am to get in line which left us no choice but to break the "Built Ford Tough" guidelines and get doughnuts with sprinkles on them. Everyone was in good spirits getting ready for the adventure of a lifetime for the team and the guest drivers of John Swift, Andy Waters, and regular team mate Tim Casey. Combine all of this with the other 12 chase trucks and crew the team was ready.......
Tech and contingency was a ZOOOOOO to say the least. The team worked through the crowd by spreading "steekers" and other stuff for the crowd. A hit for sure among the locals.
After the incredible finish the team decided to put the cherry on top and drive the race truck back home to Mesa Arizona from the finish line in Ensenada. But that's another storry.........
Announced today. Greg Foutz and Tim Casey set to pilot the all new 2017 Ford Raptor Race truck. The truck has been prepared at the Foutz Motorsports race shop by the Foutz team consisting of Travis Leach, Josh Martin, Ian Hennesey, Greg Foutz, and Nikki Foutz over the last several months. A coordinated effort with Ford Motor Company to display the durability of the next generation Ford F150 Raptor truck. The team will debuit at the Best in the Desert Parker 425 off-road race on February 6th.
The new 3.5L next generation EcoBoost engine coupled with the new 10 speed automatic transmission flat hauls ass. Come out and see the truck at the contingency area in Parker Arizona and check in often to see the most recent race results.
