Dust to Glory

Synopsis: An action-adventure documentary chronicling the most notorious and dangerous race in the world--the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. Rivaling the Indy 500 and 25 Hours of Daytona, the race across Baja's peninsula is unpredictable, grueling and raw--just like the uncharted American West of yesteryear. To capture the vast desert panoramas and intense action of the race, the film team utilized, fifty-five cameras, four helicopters, a four-passenger buggy camera car and a crew of over eighty people. Thousands of participants, generations of families and racing icons such as Robby Gordon, Mario Andretti, Jimmy Vasser and Motorcycle Supercross legend Mike Mouse McCoy joined together to experience the thrill and glory of the infamous race--an event of sheer human determination.

The father, son, and grandson,

King of the Beetles,

Team Estrogen,

The perennial champs,

The greatest ever,

and those Indy dudes.

They don't close

the race course off for anybody.

You're out there with Joe Public,

or in this case, Jose Public.

For the people of Baja. This is

one of the biggest days of the year.

We can really relate to racing,

off-road racing.

And you meet people,

you just start talking.

Start talking about

the last race, the next race.

"You remember this

and you remember that."

You end up with four

or five guys around you,

and that's called picking up dust

here in this town.

As the party atmosphere fades,

all the contradictions and metaphors

begin to make sense to me.

This isn't about a race.

It's about the race. The human race.

Which I figure is exactly

how Sal Fish intended it.

The roads aren't closed.

Locals driving backwards on the course.

You've got locals racing

right next to you.

You've got chase vehicles, and they're

on the course where they shouldn't be.

You know, I mean, this is

not for wusses. Let's face it.

Without question.

Sal Fish is the Baja 1000.

He marks a different course each year.

He deals with the concerns

of the ranchers, of the police.

as well as demands

of contestants and spectators.

I haven't met anyone that has

the stupidity, I guess, that I have

that would do it the way I do.

And I never stop thinking about this.

It's a 24-hour deal and I love it.

Get families together

and guys with the $10,000 vehicle

and guys with the $2 million vehicle.

I could never imagine

having Sal Fish's job.

Having 300 people

like Robby Gordon showing up there

wanting to go racing,

and everybody has their own agenda.

Everybody plays by the same rules.

They all pay the same entry fee.
