Axalta has announced its sponsorship of the No. 86 Dodge, Geiser Bros.-built Trophy Truck to run in the 2018 SCORE Baja 1000 in November. Veteran driver Joe Bacal will pilot the Axalta Trophy Truck, having won the SCORE Baja 1000 three times in his class. His success is well documented with two additional Class Championships in the SCORE Baja 500, and he is a two-time Stock Full Class Champion.

The fully-branded Trophy Truck was unveiled at the Off-Road Expo in Pomona, Calif., and sports a “Desert-Style” version of “Primary Colors,” a recognizable paint scheme frequently seen throughout many of the 14 Axalta-sponsored Motorsports Series around the world. The iconic, flashy neon colors are layered on a Cromax EZ blue basecoat to maximize “sparkle and pop” in the bright sun of the Mexican desert. The conditions of a grueling 1,000-mile race that begins and ends this year in Ensenada, Mexico, will not only test the drivers but all the components of a Trophy Truck.

“We are extremely excited to enter the off-road desert racing series in this year’s SCORE Baja 1000,” said Wade Robinson, managing director of Axalta Motorsports, Americas. “Our paint systems look great and are tough and durable … perfect for a race in the desert. There are perhaps no better proving grounds for our products, and no better way to express our passion for racing.”

Cromax EZ, a waterborne basecoat for refinish customers in North America, was chosen to paint the Trophy Truck for its exceptional finish, color capability and outstanding cycle time. And with a simple mixing procedure that requires just a single reducer and mix ratio across all formula types and environmental conditions, Cromax EZ is easy to mix, match and apply.
