Simply one of the best off-road drivers ever, Walker Evans continues to captivate and dazzle the fans whenever he powers his Chevy truck to the start line. Throughout his thirty-year career, he has been applauded for his exhilarating racing skills and his informal, gentlemanly manner.
Evans felt right at home in the cockpit of his 4WD Chevy Thunder truck - where his performances suit his nickname, "The Legend". It's no wonder that this driver has become so admired and respected by so many. With 142 victories and 21 championship titles to his name, Evans is one of the most accomplished competitors in the sport of off-road racing.
"I got my first sample of racing when I drove a Rambler sedan in the Baja 500 for actor James Garner's American Motors Team back in 1969", explained Evans. "I took a third place finish, and knew I had to get serious about desert racing. So I built my own vehicle, and began competing."
After winning the Baja 1000 five times in other specially built vehicles, Evans became the first driver in off-road racing history to win that grueling event overall in a truck. His other multiple desert victories include well-known races like the Mint 400, the Baja 500, the Parker 400, and the Fireworks 250.
