The all-new Ford F-150 Raptor model is one of the most off-road capable pickup trucks in the industry. Because of this, it’s no surprise that a fully street-legal stock model easily completed the 49th SCORE Baja 1000 famed desert race, coming in third place overall.
The Baja 1000, which takes place in Baja California, consists of 850 miles of rocks, potholes, sand, and dust. Taking the F-150 Raptor through this rough terrain was a Foutz Motorsports team, led by Greg Foutz. With Foutz at the helm, the Raptor managed to pull a time of 35 hours, 59 minutes, and 9 seconds.
This time is impressive as is, but what is even more impressive is the fact that the team tossed their tools and spare tires in the back of the race truck and drove it back to their home shop—located in Phoenix, Arizona.
“[The Ford F-150 Raptor is] a race-proven off-road monster that can race off-road an entire weekend, then take you and your friends on a road trip the next day,” Greg Foutz said. “That and the $49,520 stating price make it a clear winner on the showroom floor.”
