Toyota has announced that they will be entering this 2010 model year 4Runner in this year's SCORE Baja 1000.
We also hear that this 4Runner they will be racing is one of the vehicles we took over the Rubicon Trail a few months ago. On a related note, a few people that were with us on that Rubicon run will be co-driving the 4Runner for the Baja 1000.
Les Unger, Toyota's national motorsports manager, says, "Historically, only half of the racers finish this incredible test of man and machine, but we're confident the Fifth Generation 4Runner will be a major contender in the stock mini class and can handle the grueling course."
The 4Runner will run on General Tires and utilize the famous Baja Pits Organization throughout the single-loop course.
