February 9, 2017 (Agua Dulce, Calif.): The 50th anniversary of off road racing is a landmark event. In order to pay proper tribute to it's rich history in off road racing, NORRA is bringing back the Mexican 1000 embroidered patch. For more than a half century, racers have shown their pride and celebrated their accomplishments by wearing embroidered patches that pay tribute to iconic racing events. In response to popular demand, 50th anniversary racers will be able to do the same. In fact, the look and feel of these are very close to the original Mexican 1000 patches from the 1960’s. Patches for all drivers and co-drivers registered will go out shortly by United States Postal Service so you will have time to sew them on your driving suit.

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.
