Hard work and a focus on winning are the simple reasons why the team keeps coming out on top in Baja SAE.

THE MICHIGAN BAJA RACING TEAM is a very special community. It always has been. It's a group that I'll look back on for the rest of my life and be thankful that I was lucky enough to be a part of.

It's special because it's directly at the intersection of two much larger, much more significant communities, the first of which is The University of Michigan and its College of Engineering. The UMCoE pushes its students to pursue excellence in many areas, including extracurriculars such as the Baja Team. The other incredible group we're a part of is the Baja SAE community. Every person I've interacted with that's been a part of Baja SAE has been phenomenal, whether it's the SAE staff, the event organizers, volunteers, or other team members. Even though the competition is always fierce and the events are stressful, everyone involved is great, and we all drive each other to be better. These two groups help drive Michigan Baja Racing to continue to push the envelope of what a Baja SAE vehicle can do year after year.
