The Baja Truck is a casting that was forged from the Team Hot Wheels Campaign. It all started with the Fearless at the 500 Record Setting Jump on May 29, 2011. Watch the video >> HERE. Does that truck on the ramp look familiar? Its the 1:1 version of the Baja Truck, which preceded the Hot Wheels casting that was released in 2012 as part of the 2012 High-Speed Wheel line (shown below).
In 2014, the Baja Truck was also seen in the Team Hot Wheels: Origin of Awesome Cartoon. The car was more of a soap-box derby style car driven by the Stunt Man of the Group, Wyatt. That was until, a crazy mad scientist named Larry (Wood), zaps it with a ray gun and turns it into a real car. In 2015, Hot Wheels released the Origin of Awesome 5-Pack and the diecast car from the cartoon was included.
