“The Legend” Walker Evans will be leading a 300+ mile, two day journey through Baja California this October 6th-9th at the UTVUnderground Legends Rally. Off-Road Motorsport Hall of Fame inductee Walker Evans is one of the greatest off-road racers to ever walk the earth. A multidiscipline driver, Walker has amassed more than 142 total victories and 21 championship titles in off-road desert and short course racing, as well as pioneered the sport of rock crawling.
Throughout his 30 year racing career, Walker was applauded for his exhilarating racing skills and his informal, gentlemanly manner. Walker always felt right at home in the cockpit of his racing trucks where his performance suited his nickname “The Legend”. Walker has won the Baja 1000 nine times in his specially built trucks. He was the first driver in off-road racing history to win that grueling race overall in a truck. His other multiple desert victories include well-known races like The Mint 400, the Baja 500, the Parker 400 and the Fireworks 250. He also has many victories in short course and stadium racing events.
“I love meeting new people and introducing them to off-roading. I have spent my entire carrier bringing people and business into our great sport. Taking them riding in Baja is absolutely the best way to do it. You will become a lifelong off-roader after an experience like this,” stated Walker.
Don’t miss out on this once in lifetime opportunity to have a unique experience with arguably the legend of all legends. Only a few spots are left:
“We are honored to have “The Legend” Walker Evans leading our ride. He is an important figure in our culture and at 78 years young he is still contributing and active. There is a saying in our culture, “Old racers never retire, they just pre-run more!” I am excited to share the opportunity to meet Walker with new people. Our goal with The Legends Rally is to preserve, celebrate and share off-road racing culture. The fact that you will get to ride and hang out with Walker is truly a unique offering,” stated Legends Rally creator and Mad Media CEO, Matt Martelli.
