with BJ Baldwin Through 2017

PHOENIX, AZ – January 23, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Rigid Industries® LED Lighting, the world’s leader in forward projecting LED lighting via its patented optic systems and torture-tested housing, announces extended sponsorship of Baldwin Motorsports’ “Ballistic” BJ Baldwin out of Las Vegas, NV racing in the Score-International Series and Best in the Desert Series.


Baldwin is a 6-Time National Off-Road Racing Champion and driver of the 7.9-liter, 800 horsepower #97 Chevrolet trophy truck. In addition to his back to back Baja 1000 victories in 2012 and 2013,  his win at the 2011 General Tire Mint 400, 2010 Parker 425, and 2008 Baja 500, his 6 series championships are solidifying BJ’s place in Off-Road history.

“We have relied on BJ to demonstrate how our products work in the real desert racing world, to prove that our LED products can win races… and he has done very, very well in proving that.  I am very excited to move forward with BJ, and quite honestly we can’t wait to see what he will do next,” says Taylor Anderson, VP of Marketing of Rigid Industries.

BJ Baldwin has many different driving skills and abilities seen previously from the desert to Dakar, from Glamis to the X-Games, and not to mention the 2 part viral video series known as “Recoil”. By displaying what it takes to win while putting himself and his truck through the most rugged and unforgiving of terrain year after year, BJ has proven what it means to be a member of the Rigid Industries Torture Team. Rigid Industries stays on as a sponsor alongside of Monster Energy, Toyo Tires, King Shocks, Method Race Wheels, Hoonigan, and Red Kap.
