Roger Norman waved Rod Hall and his son Chad across the finish line of the Baja 1000 with a special “50/80” flag, then draped the flag across the Hummer on the podium. The flag is in honor of Rod’s 50th Baja 1000 and 80th birthday. Roger Norman photo.

Despite the late hour — it was the middle of the night! — a large crowd was on hand to witness off-road racing history, as Rod Hall crossed the finish line in La Paz. Rod is the only racer to have competed in all 50 Baja 1000s, wrapping up a storied career with yet another win, bringing his total to a remarkable 25 class wins. He is also the only racer in Baja 1000 history to win overall in a four wheel drive vehicle.
