BFG Team Rennsport Charges To Major Success at 2019 NORRA Mexican 1000
SAN JOSE DEL CABO, (May 6, 2019) – The Baja peninsula is relatively quiet right now, with most of the NORRA race cars taking a well-earned ride back to their homes 1,000 or many more miles away. That includes BFG Team Rennsport’s familiar #124 “Angelina” single-seater, now battle scarred and tired, but still carrying the team’s pride back to Long Beach, California.
Celebrating their 30th anniversary in the finest style possible, BFG Team Rennsport claimed an official second in class and eye-popping 20th overall at the 2019 NORRA Mexican 1000, a 1,254-mile marathon that weaved down the Baja from Ensenada to San Jose Del Cabo. The event concluded Friday night with a seaside awards ceremony that also awarded the team with the highly prestigious “Spencer Low Hard Charger Award” for their battle back from first day electrical and navigation gremlins.
On Saturday night’s massive South Point Seaside Awards celebration, it was announced the team’s performance had also earned them the inaugural “Hard Charger” trophy for moving from 157th position to 20th overall. It was created in memory of late veteran racing hero Spencer Low after his come from behind run in last year’s Mexican 1000. The trophy was handcrafted by his son Spencer Ryan Low, and was presented in a moving ceremony by Low and Cathy Low.
A cash prize of $2,250 was also included, thanks to the support of many familiar names in the off-road community, including: Palapa Boy Racing (the Dague Family), TCS (the Torque Converter Shop), Rusty’s Off-Road, Tri-Ace Tires, Fox’s Resort and the Spencer Low Family. The elder Low, whose off-road racing participation spanned five decades, passed away earlier this year while spectating at the King of the Hammers event.
BFG Team Rennsport is supported by the top brands in the off-road industry, a list that includes BFGoodrich Tires, Method Race Wheels, Fox Racing Shox, Weddle Industries, Brown & Miller Racing (plumbing and wiring), Eibach Springs, AEM Electronics, Maglock, KC Hilites and Caltime Metals. A significant contribution also comes from Coats (Brian Coats Motorsports), the Rennsport Group and B3Kreativ.
BFGoodrich Team Rennsport will be providing updates throughout the year as it prepares for a return to Baja in October for the newly renewed NORRA Mexican 500. For more information visit www.facebook.com/
