can anyone help me on how to get into baja

i dont have a truck at the moment, but i really love baja and i live like 2-3 hours from each of the racing areas, like the bajas and such. anyways, at first i was gonna get a bug, and go baja, then i decided open wheel racer, but now i wanna get a truck and do this, i was thinkin of maybe a 2wd 97' F150 or a 2wd silverado. anyways how would i get involved in doing some racing in some of those events?? ive heard people talk about piting, i hae a few friends who are into cars, they'd probably pit for me if i asked. any insite on how to get involved in racing would be appreciated

Trucks are an expensive and labor intensive way to go. I suggest that you start in Class 9 (open wheel). A class 9 car can be had for around $8k, ready to race. A good website to get al the details is at
