(Episode 136 Shelby Hall interview)

Can you give us a quick high altitude summary of what the Baja 1000 is and when it started?

How did you first learn about Rod Hall?

What drove you to make a movie about the legacy of Rod Hall?

Did you have any filmmaking experience before making One More Win?

How long did it take to film One More Win?

How long was the editing process?

Did you have a favorite moment while filming?

Were there any heartbreaking moments?

Did Rod Hall have a phrase or saying that he would use often?

(Aaron – My favorite was the quote, “To finish first, you must first finish.”)

Did you have any doubts that he might not be able to participate in the 50th Baja 1000?

Was there anything that you had to cut from the film for one reason or another that you wanted to keep in but couldn’t?  If so, what was it?

Obviously his Bronco is iconic but do you have a favorite vehicle that he raced in?

Do you plan to make any more films?

Here are some of Rod Halls greatest achievements:

  • Rod Hall and Larry Minor won their class in the very first 1967 NORRA Mexican 1000. They drove Rod’s Jeep CJ-5.
  • Rod Hall would enter the next 50 Baja 1000 races, continuously without missing one, and is the only person to do so.
  • Out of those 50 races, he won 25, including an overall win with Larry Minor in a Ford Bronco in 1969. That was incredibly unique and is the only 4×4 production vehicle to ever win the Baja 1000 overall.
  • Rod Hall was immortalized in the Off Road Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2005.
  • Rod Hall had over 200 wins in off-road racing.

Thanks for coming on Amy!  We’ll need to get you on to talk about your racing career.  Where can our listeners find the movie and where can they find you?
