Did you hear... Don Prudhomme got tired of being retired, and went Baja racing a Polaris RZR in the Mexican 1000? 50 years after he raced as co-driver in the Baja 1000 in Steve McQueens buggy

In 1968, Prudhomme entered the Mexican 1000 Baja race in a Porsche-powered buggy built by racing innovator Tony Nancy and owned by actor Steve McQueen. Shortly before the race, McQueen had a movie conflict so Nancy reached out to Prudhomme to fill the seat as the co-driver.

That is 2018 Polaris RZR 1000 prepped by P.J. Jones (Parnelli's son) of PJ’s Performance in Mesa, Ariz., and will race in the Stock Turbo UTV class.
