ENSENADA, Mexico, Nov 17, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Pre-running continues for the Oshkosh Extreme Racing team, which has entered its first Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. Lead driver Glenn Harris drove the Oshkosh Corporation-designed Light Concept Vehicle (LCV), numbered M1 for the race, around tight corners with speed and ease, thanks to the proprietary Oshkosh TAK-4® suspension, which provides increased stability and greater off-road mobility needed on the intense point-to-point race that runs this year from Ensenada to La Paz.

"We learned a few things and made some tweaks to the trucks last night," Harris said. "All the Oshkosh Extreme Racing drivers, including myself, are really excited to get these trucks out on the course tomorrow."
