Let's go back to the 2006 Baja 1000 - here are a few excerpts of press releases:
On November 16th, 2006, three Stock Full race trucks flying the KORE logo left the starting line to take on the notorious SCORE Baja 1000. KORE’s 2006 Team DESERT ASSAULT consisted of #865, RPM Off-Road, from Bristol, Tennessee, #866,Worthington Racing from Los Angeles, and #867, Team Canada Racing, from Alberta. Each team drove similarly-equipped Cummins diesel-powered Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 pickups. 1047.8 miles of whoops, silt beds, exposed rocks and standing water from recent hurricanes made that year’s Baja 1000 particularly challenging, claiming 146 of the 283 Four Wheel class starters – a 51% attrition rate. Team DESERT ASSAULT didn’t have it easy!
"We had passed everyone within the first 50 miles, but then we broke a sector shaft," said Loren Worthington, owner of #866. "We were right in the middle of the race course which made changing out the steering box dangerous, awkward and time-consuming. We barely made check point two without timing out."
At Ciudad Insurgentes, Landon Worthington took over in the left seat while Kroeker co-drove. "It was like a graveyard out there. Cars were everywhere stuck in the silt. Drivers stood near by with long faces and tow-straps in hand. We just couldn’t help everyone. There were so many. So close to the finish too. It was heartbreaking,” said Landon. Conservative, precise driving by Landon Worthington brought #866 down the Steps to the finish line in the city of La Paz. As the sun rose over the Sea of Cortez forty hours and seventeen minutes after the start in Ensenada the race was over. KORE/Worthington Racing had made it to the podium for third place.

The 2006 Baja 1000 was the first time a biodiesel-powered truck ever raced in the Baja. Based on a 2003 2500 Dodge RAM diesel, this truck is a fierce competitor in the desert race world. Worthington Off Road makes bio diesel conversion for this kind of rigs in the comfort of their shop. They recycle even the used cooking oil that is thrown out when restaurants clean their deep fryers. The oil is processed and filtered and the result is a product that produces far less emissions than regular diesel and is much better for the engine, all for about 70 cents a gallon. The average Trophy truck gets approx 2.7 miles to the gallon with a gallon of race fuel costing over $5 a gallon these days. You do the math. Its not too hard to see why bio fuel in this truck makes sense. This truck averages over 10 miles to the gallon and is producing around 500 horsepower!! Not that bad 'eh?? Race the Baja on salad oil...
