Another father and son effort, Larry and Chad Ragland, contested the Trophy Truck class in their Chevy Silverado. Larry has five Baja 1000 overall wins to his name. Chad has been racing motorcycles since he was 11, and has some off-road truck racing experience as well. The 2003 Baja 1000 was their first event as driver and codriver. Chad Ragland has also had an interest in business for a long time; his current company, Your Source Financial, is his third venture. "There are some very definite parallels between starting a business and racing," the younger Ragland observed. "First is the ability to overcome fear. I'm not sure which is scarier, racing or owning your own business."
