Supporting Baja Racers Since 1967!
Fuel Orders Due By April 18, 2022
AGUA DULCE, CALIF. The Magnificent 7 Pit Support Team supported racers during the very first Mexican 1000 and will be there for you again this race! For the 2022 Mexican 1000, MAG 7 will provide 11 pits down the length of the Baja peninsula. There will be 7 “Splash” pits for Stock UTVs and Motorcycles and 4 “Full Service” pits for all racers.MAG 7 is a 501c7 non-profit fraternal organization. The “Brothers and Sisters” in MAG 7 are all volunteers who support their extended family of offroad racers like you because they love doing it and they love doing it together. MAG 7 specializes in supporting UTVs and Motorcycles.
For the 2022 Mexican 1000, MAG 7 will provide the 7 “Splash” pits through NORRA at no additional expense to Stock UTV and Motorcycle racers. Each “Splash” pit will provide 10 gallons of 91 octane pump gas to each Stock UTV and 3 gallons to each Moto. The “Splash” pits will be at 75-mile race intervals not covered by Mexican gas stations or chase trucks to ensure Stock UTVs and Motorcycles can make it to the next fueling opportunity with running out of gas!
MAG 7 “Splash” pits will be located at the following locations. On Day 1, MAG 7 will be at El Alamo for Stock UTVs only and Valle de Trinidad for Motos only. On Day 2, at El Huefanito for both Stock UTVs and Motos. On Day 3, at South Villa Jesus Maria for Stock UTVs only and at El Datil and La Purisima for both Stock UTVs and Motos. On Day 4, at San Luis Gonzaga and El Soledad for Stock UTVs and Rancho El Conejo for Motos only.
FULL SERVICE PITS
The 4 MAG 7 “Full Service” pits are there for all racers and include “Emergency Service” through NORRA at no additional expense to all racers and “Full Service” for an additional fee. All MAG 7 pits will monitor 153.380 which should be pre-programmed into most race radios as “MAG 7”. MAG 7 “Full Service” pits include generators, welders, lights, air, tools, and other important pit gear. “Emergency Service” includes repairs to get you to the next point but NO FUELING. For “Full Service”, racers can pre-order either 91, 100 or 110 fuel to be hauled to the pit location and dumped by the MAG 7 pit crews. “Full Service” is available for an additional pit fee of $500. Sign-ups and fuel purchases can be made on the MAG 7 website at: www.mag7race.com. Please note that your pit support fees are lower with MAG 7 because MAG 7 is not a business and the pit fees simply cover some of the MAG 7 volunteers’ expenses to be in Baja for you!
MAG 7 “Full” service pits will be located on Day 1 at the north end of Laguna Diablo, on Day 2 at the exit of Laguna Chapala, on Day 3 at La Purisima, and Day 4 at San Luis Gonzaga.
Each racer is limited to ordering no more than 15 gallons of fuel at each Full Service pit. If any racer has extraordinary fuel or service requirements, please contact MAG 7 directly.
NORRA will provide additional information to racers regarding exact locations for “Splash” and “Full Service” pits in a mileage summary, the race books, and on your Stella tracker. Each pit location on a “Special” section of the course will be located in a “Neutral Zone” on the Stella tracker. This means that racers who stop for fuel at a MAG 7 pit location will be giving a 5-minute time credit at the end of each day.

### Good Vibes. Good Times! ###
Beginning in 2010, the National Off Road Racing Association (NORRA) began promoting a rebirth of the NORRA Mexican 1000 rally. The unique off-road rally was co-created by promoter Mike Pearlman to consist of special stages (unlimited speed timed stages in the dirt) linked together by controlled speed liaison / transit sections (highway). The one-of-a-kind, once-a-year, five-day rally includes vintage off-road vehicles and motorcycles, as well as modern pre-runners, trucks, buggies, UTVs, bikes and desert Rally Raid cars.
Pearlman’s late father Ed and others established the first running of the NORRA Mexican 1000 off-road rally in November of 1967, which eventually became internationally recognized and evolved into the Baja 1000 in the mid-1970's.
NORRA enjoys corporate partnerships with Yokohama Tire, Method Race Wheels, South Point Hotel & Casino, McMillin Racing, Bilstein Shock Absorbers, STEEL-IT, Multitool USA, Satélite del Norte, Biltwell, Cerveceria Transpeninsular, PCI Race Radios, Schampa, Optima Batteries, K&N, Horsepower Ranch, Baja Bush Pilots, The Fab School, Mag7 Pits, the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame (ORMHOF), B3KREATIV, and many more.
