Professional UTV racer and Red Bull athlete Mia Chapman will climb back behind the wheel of her #1937 Yokohama Tire Polaris RZR on Friday in the second edition of the Legacy Racing Association Vision Wheel Baja Nevada. Chapman will attempt to improve on a seventh place finish in her most recent outing in Primm last month in one of the longest events of the year for any desert racing team in North America.
“I can’t wait to take on Baja Nevada this weekend!” said Chapman. “Point-to-point races are always an exciting challenge, and having to stay in the fight for a race as long as Baja Nevada is a true test of both driver speed and strategy. Anything can happen over a race as long as this one, and we’re excited to do well this weekend for all of our partners, especially Vision Wheel, who sponsors the race itself!”
Chapman’s first start of the Legacy season came in May’s Stateline Shootout from Primm, which saw drivers complete 16 laps over two days on a nine-mile course. Friday’s Vision Wheel Baja Nevada couldn’t pose a more different challenge; it’s a 650-mile straight shot from Beatty to Tonopah. While the race took place over two days last year, the 2022 edition of the race will be contested over a single day, forcing Chapman and the #1937 team to manage their equipment throughout the day and well into the night.
