The Dakar Rally is a two week off-road rally that takes place in Senegal, Africa. Senegal, is the farthest African country to the west and borders Mali. This race has been in effect since 1979 and still going strong.
This race heads through more than five countries and covers thousands of kilometers. This race makes the Baja 1000 look like a trip to the public pool. This year, Robby Gordon and team Pro-Comp tackled the race. They are racing a Hummer with more sponsors than MySpace. As of Stage 10, Robby sat in 11th place, but was still in the race. More
