Andy McMillin is a 29 year-old third generation off-road prodigy. Andy’s passion for off-road racing began at the age of 2 when he started going to Baja to “pre-run” the race courses with his dad in a modified car seat. From the time he was 10 years old, his family would take weekend trips to the sand dunes in Imperial County where Andy’s father taught him to drive a clutch. Once Andy got the hang of it, he practiced and honed his driving skills all day and night pretending he was Ivan Stewart or Larry Ragland driving through Baja.
Andy is one of the few drivers in the sport who have won Baja’s coveted Triple Crown Overall title in a four-wheel vehicle: the San Felipe 250 (in his Class 1 car), the Baja 500 and the Baja 1000. He has also had success in the United States races, having won the Parker 425, Nevada 1000, Vegas to Reno twice and is one of few who have won the infamous Mint 400 Overall twice.
Andy has an unheard of winning percentage of 35% and podium percentage of 54%, proving his place among one the greatest drivers the sport has ever seen.
Dan McMillin has been driving off road vehicles since a very young age. At 27 years old, he has already been racing competitively for over a decade. His father Mark and Grandfather Corky are icons in the sport. Dan is following in their footsteps and has applied their lessons well. He won his first race ever, driving a 1600 buggy, and has since worked his way up to the premiere class in the SCORE series, Trophy Truck. A calculating and controlled driving style has allowed Dan to finish every Baja 1000 he has entered from his earliest days in a 1600 buggy, driving an unlimited class one car, and in his Trophy Truck. Dan is building a solid reputation as a top contender in the Trophy Truck class and has a special competitive streak when it comes to racing against his younger Brother Luke who is also behind the wheel of a Trophy Truck this season.
Luke McMillin has been around offroad cars his entire life. Having mentors like his father Mark, a five time overall winner of the Baja 1000, and Grandfather Corky, has given Luke great insight at only 23 years of age. He began racing in the 1600 limited buggy class, where he finished consistently on the podium. In 2010, he won the 1600 class championship in the SCORE series. He backed it up with a second straight championship in 2011; winning both the Baja 500 and Baja 1000. In 2012, Luke moved up into an unlimited class one car in the SCORE series. He won all three Baja races, the San Felipe 250, the Baja 500, and the Baja 1000. In 2016, Luke is competing against a highly competitive field, including his Brother Dan, in the Trophy Truck class. Look for Luke to use the same attention to detail and competitive drive he has in the past.
Her youthful looks or bubbly persona fool you for one second. Jessica McMillin wants to kick your ass on the race track. And given the winning tradition her last name carries, she can likely get that done if she hasn’t already.
Jessica, 25, is the older sister to Andy McMillin and the daughter of Scott and Susan McMillin. “I’ve been going prerunning since I was just four years old,” she proudly states. “My father actually had two kid seats in his prerunner, and we would ride around the dunes chasing my grandpa (off-road racing legend Corky McMillin) and my uncle (five-time Baja 1000 winner Mark McMillin).
