The rugged, untamed, and wide-open terrain of the Baja peninsula is the backdrop for this history of one of the most challenging and popular endurance races in the world. Starting with the brave record runs of Dave Ekins and Ted Mangels in the early 1960s and the first official race in 1967 and carrying on through the amazing technological sophistication of today’s vehicles, the Baja 1000 is a testament to the human spirit’s inherent need to conquer that which seems impossible.

All forms of racers and automotive innovators have come to meet the challenges of Baja. From ragtag backyard mechanics to the finest engineering minds in motorsports, the competitors in this colorful race are as unique and bold as the race itself, and they include Walker Evans, the father-and-son team of Bob and Robby Gordon, Parnelli Jones, brothers Rick and Roger Mears, Bruce Meyers, Larry Ragland, Larry Roeseler, Malcolm Smith, Ivan “Ironman” Stewart, and celebrities such as James Garner and Steve McQueen. They have all left their mark along Baja’s unforgiving mountain passes and expansive dry lake beds.

1000 Miles to Glory captures the action, personalities, records, and behind-the-scenes magic of this legendary event through interviews with race legends, race organizers, some of the race’s more outlandish characters, and desert racing’s most decorated journalists. Lavishly illustrated, the book features rare, early color and black-and-white photographs and spectacular contemporary shots that bring the year-by-year action to life. Detailed race results complete the book, making this the definitive history of the last true open road race.
