Baja 1000 Classic is a documentary recorded in November, 1968 and narrated by filmmaker Bruce Brown. The film was released in 2005 by Brown's grandson, Wes, after accumulating decades worth of dust in the family film vault. The unearthed footage brings to light the 1000 mile second running of the now famous Baja, Mexico off-road race. The film follows the race's assorted vehicle types, including passenger cars, dune buggies, motorcycles, trucks, and four-wheel drives, as they and their drivers take on the harsh and often extreme conditions of the dry Baja peninsula's landscape. Baja 1000 Classic takes the viewer back in time to see racing history as it took place. The film highlights race participants including Malcolm Smith, a Motorcycle Hall of Fame inductee, race car driver Rufus Parnell "Parnelli" Jones, actor James Garner, drag racer Larry Minor and Jack Bayer, as they overcome the numerous obstacles that the Baja terrain puts in their paths.
