March 30, 2017. (Agua Dulce, Calif.): For the first time ever, all 2017 NORRA Mexican 1000 participants will receive MAG-7 pit service included with their race entry.

All motorcycles will be able to pull into the full service MAG-7 pits to receive 91 octane fuel and any assistance necessary to keep you going in the race. In addition, MAG-7 will have “moto splash pits” in some of the remote areas of the course to ensure that you will have enough gas to make it to the next pit or transit stage. If you require a higher octane fuel, they will have VP 100 octane and VP 110 octane available at an additional cost. Please contact MAG-7 Race Director Geoff Hill at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to pre-order higher octane fuel. Note: Fuel orders must be submitted before April 15th!

Beginning in 2010, the National Off Road Racing Association (NORRA) began promoting a rebirth of the NORRA Mexican 1000 rally. The unique off-road rally was co-created by promoter Mike Pearlman to consist of special stages (unlimited speed timed stages in the dirt) linked together by controlled speed liaison / transit sections (highway). The one-of-a-kind, once-a-year, four-day rally includes vintage off-road vehicles and motorcycles, as well as modern desert Rally Raid cars, pre-runner trucks, buggies and motorcycles.
Pearlman's late father Ed and others established the first running of the NORRA Mexican 1000 off-road rally in November of 1967, which eventually became internationally recognized and evolved into the Baja 1000 in the mid-1970's.
The 2016 NORRA Mexican 1000 was supported by Multi-Tool USA, Method Race Wheels, Azunia Tequila, Walker Evans Racing, South Point Hotel Casino, Bilstein Shock Absorbers and Mastercraft/Impact Safety.
