Video of the Week: 1100 HP Trophy Truck Tested For The Baja 1000

It is that time of year, soon the big guns will be heading to Baja for the Baja 1000 and we are getting excited for the action we have come to expect from this incredible event.

“Plaster City, CA has long been the benchmark for desert truck testing in the US. It’s home to some of the gnarliest whoops this side of the border. On this episode of Whoopocalypse Ken Block and co-driver Alex Gelsomino head to the famed site to get some wide open high speed testing under their belt, ahead of the Baja 1000. To top it off, we wrapped Team mate Jax Redline’s helicopter in the same “It’s A Living” livery as the truck, and VFX wizard Ash Thorp even drops in for a ride along”. Ken Block
