Larry Roeseler Enters Mexican 1000

Baja Racing

The National Off Road Racing Association (NORRA) announced that thirteen time Baja 1000 overall winner, Larry Roeseler, has entered the vintage 2011 NORRA Mexican 1000 Rally with a motorcycle.

The off-road Baja Rally is open to pre-1991 vintage vehicles and motorcycle, alternative fuel vehicle, and there is an exhibition category for those wishing to join in the fun and support the event without the pressure of competition.

NORRA’s administrative director, Michele Martineau, stated “the make and model are still under wraps, but he is going to do it on two wheels, and we are very excited!”

Roeseler, who was featured in Dana Brown’s 2005 film, “Dust to Glory”, claimed ten of his Baja 1000 overall victories and five of his ten Baja 500 overall wins on a motorcycle.

While he officially retired from motorcycle racing in 1994, in 2006 he returned to Kawasaki’s “Team Green” to serve as an off-road ambassador and consultant. He was inducted into the American Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1999.

In 2010, Roeseler and Norman Motorsports won NORRA’s alternative fuel category 13, and Roeseler enthusiastically exclaimed that “The Mexican 1000 was an amazing event, a great experience, and everybody who was not there missed something very important”.

Important enough indeed, an event that has already convinced several iconic champions to come out of retirement and return to the roots, glory, and fun of off-road racing!

The Mexican 1000 Rally starts May 4th in Mexicali, Baja MX, with overnight stops in Bay of Los Angeles, Loreto, and ending in La Paz.
