Dustin Grabowski and Cody Woodruff have been tackling the Baja races in Mexico for years, but this time they showed their true pace and came out on top in the Class 5 unlimited category during the Baja 500 race - the little brother of the infamous Baja 1000. Once the dust had settled, we had a quick chat with them to learn all about Baja and what it takes to tackle it.
Guys, first of all congratulations on a big win. You’ve come a long way. Where did the Grabowski Brothers racing team start out?
Dustin: I started out when I was very young. My dad was always racing and building things so I literally grew up with the sport. By the time I was six my dad had built me an off-road cart to go out and practise with, and it just got more and more serious after that. I started competing properly when I was twelve but I’ve been pretty much been driving and racing for as long as I can remember.
