Kane Fraser, a paraplegic, decided to take on the 2011 Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 in a Polaris RZR XP 900.
“This was our first Baja 1000, our first time racing, and for me my first time racing in any sport ever,” says Fraser.
A first timer’s experience at Baja is hardly ever smooth and Fraser did run into a few issues.
