With the popularity of off-road racing continuing to grow, the team from SPEED Energy and Stadium Super Trucks have added another awesome racing event, the Mike’s Peak Hill Climb Challenge. This challenging race will take place at the famous Mike’s Sky Rancho in Baja, Mexico, bringing another fun race to the Mexican desert.

To honor 50 years of racing in Baja, SST has partnered with the Ranch to put on this event and extended an invitation to two, three, and four-wheel dirt eating machines. Every one is welcome to try their skill at being the fastest up the peak. Classes range from short course trucks, to rally cars, motorcycles and even rock crawlers. With plenty of cool vehicles in every class, everyone should be entertained no matter what type of off-roading you’re into.

The route is all dirt, just more than 19 miles long, and covers 4,000 feet in elevation change through water crossings and cattle guards. Robby Gordon is stoked to see how this contest turns out, saying, “I can’t wait to see how the SST’s stack up against other vehicles that attempt to make this climb. It’s a 100 percent dirt track, with more turns than Pike’s Peak before you reach a first of its kind water crossing finish at Mike’s.” neither can we, it sounds pretty epic.

Gordon’s old school racing brings back the real challenge of man and machine, dirt roads without guard rails, and a longer, more challenging race that fans are sure to love. Since this race is open to any racer with a car and a dream space is limited, it will fill up quickly, so if you want to enter your rig, send an email to

This inaugural event is scheduled to take place over four days in October of 2016, no official dates have been set, and we will update you as soon as possible. Camping will be available on-site and the Mexican Fiesta that will occur each night for all the drivers and guests is sure to be a hit.
