The Baja 500 is one of the best-known off-road races in the world. Starting and finishing in Ensenada, Mexico, the Baja 500 is a grueling event taking place in Baja California for nearly 500 miles. Just over half of the competitors actually finished the race this year across all classes. However, in the various motorcycle and ATV classes, over three quarters of the entrants finished.
