When people talk about off road racing they always mention how it’s a family sport or the old saying “a family that races together stays together.” Well there is no greater example than the Langley family. John Langley and his two sons, Morgan and Zak have been racing together since 2008. What started out as a fun way for John to spend time with his boys has evolved to a fully staffed off road race team. At this year’s Baja 500 they will be racing 3 vehicles. Zak Langley will race the #50 trophy truck, John Langley will race the Class 1 car, and Morgan Langley will race the class 10. This year the Langley’s have teamed up with off road racing legends Harley Letner (class1), Cory Halopoff (class 10), and Rick D. Johnson (trophy truck).
“ I think the course is challenging as it always is. There are a lot of surprises on the course and I think Roger (Norman) has put together a great course. I’m starting and Harley Letner is finishing. I’m a little concerned with bottlenecks around Uripan. I hope we make a good show.”
“ I think the class 10 race is going to be pretty good, there are a lot of cars. It’s a pretty technical course. I think there will be a lot of cars stuck and broken cars. I think me and Morgan are going to do good, it should be a great race. I think a class 10 car will do really well here. I think it will turn out good for us. “
“Im getting in around mile 170ish. The pass over to Mike’s is really gnarley. A lot of silt hills, tight narrow turns. If you can get through that with out any trouble, I feel the racing will start at Mike’s. Overall the course is fast, rough and technical, The Cops (class 1) car feels a lot like mine, so I’m really comfortable in it”
“ I blew 2 corners during qualifying that I’m not too happy about. But overall I am happy that I’m picking up the pace in the trophy truck. I think the course is fun and we should do well.”
“I am so fortunate enough to be racing with Cops Racing. I am driving the Cops Racing trophy truck #50 with Zak Langley. I have a really fun section from race mile 260 to the finish. Zak has his work cut of for him to get it over the mountain and ill take it to the finish. I’m excited to be here and we are looking for a solid finish.”
