Typically, we are busy doing product development for new models or enhancing our current product offerings to give you the dealer alternative ways to dress up your showroom vehicles, this month, it’s all about our roots…and some exciting NEW Jsport news!

Baja 500 Race

This year’s Score International Baja 500 was a nail biter! The Honda Off Road Racing team debuted the brand-new Honda Ridgeline race truck with only limited testing miles due to time constraints. The team battled for 500+ miles in the harshest desert that Baja had to offer for the entire race only facing minor technical issues. The team pressed hard to the very end to regain the lead within 10 miles of the finish line, clinching an official first in class victory once again. Team Honda Ridgeline has managed to pull off an astounding five first-place victories out of the last 8 races, making them a perfect three for three in the 2019 season.
