by

Well, he did it – Johnny Campbell picked up the record 11th overall Baja 1000 motorcycle title by crossing the race course finish line in Ensenada, Mexico, at shortly after 7 p.m. on Nov. 21 – 12 hours, 29 minutes and 10 seconds after his team began the 631-mile journey through the Baja peninsula.

Riding for Team Honda, Campbell was aided in his achievement by teammates Robby Bell and Kendall Norman.

Campbell was tied with Baja Wunderkind Larry Roeseler for 10 overall motorcycle wins leading into this year’s 41st Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 off-road race. Roeseler’s record of 10 overall motorcycle wins in the event was achieved in 1994. It took 13 years before Campbell tied the record last year.

Starting and finishing in Ensenada, just across the U.S. border, the elapsed-time race this year includes nearly 375 teams from 39 states and 24 countries. The first motorcycles entered the course at 6:30 a.m., with the first four-wheel vehicles starting around four hours later. Vehicles left in 30-second intervals. Every participant will have 31 hours to complete the distance.

The Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 awards presentation takes place 10 a.m. Sunday, November 23 at the San Nicolas Hotel in Ensenada.
