Our Story

Here at Purdue NW Baja Racing we take pride in the fact that we all have different backgrounds. Some of the team members are studying towards mechanical engineering or mechanical engineering technology, we also have members who are working towards degrees outside of engineering. 

Our value as a team is to strive to build the best and most durable baja vehicle out of the 200 collegiate teams.
