Walker Evans Racing "Official UTV Wheel And Shock" Of The 2016 NORRA Mexican 1000 Rally
(Agua Dulce, Calif.): The NORRA Mexican 1000 celebrates the tradition of Baja racing. Their Official UTV Wheel and Shock Sponsor, Walker Evans Racing, has a tradition of winning. Walker Evans Racing has always been a leader in racing technology and their line of performance shock absorbers and distinctive wheel designs carry on that practice. Not only is NORRA proud to have Walker Evans Racing as a sponsor, but privileged to have Walker himself back for another year as a competitor. Those racing against Walker in the Race for Cash better bring their A-game as Walker is just as fast as he ever was behind the wheel of his Alumi Craft Grande, racing in the Pro Unlimited class.

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, rally cars, a limited group of modern desert racecars and classes for prerunner trucks and buggies.
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-1970s.
The NORRA Mexican 1000 is supported by American Racing Wheel, South Point Hotel Casino, Walker Evans Racing, Azunia Tequila, KC HiLites, Bilstein Shock Absorbers and Mastercraft/Impact Safety.
