Long-Awaited Dust to Glory Sequel Coming Soon

Part two of the legendary Baja 1000 documentary arriving this Fall!

Published on 04.17.2017

It’s hard to believe 12 years have passed since Dust to Glory debuted. When Dana Brown’s classic off-road film documenting the 2003 SCORE Baja 1000 first hit theaters, GoPro cameras used 35mm film, Facebook was still just for college students and iPhones didn’t exist.

All of which made Brown’s achievement that much more ambitious. Using more than 50 bulky cameras — including some mounted on dirt bikes — four helicopters, a buggy, and a crew of 80, he was able to capture the 2003 race from start to finish, from the inside. By the time solo rider Mike “Mouse” McCoy brought his Honda XR650R across the finish line well after dark, viewers of Dust to Glory felt like they’d ridden the entire race right alongside him.

Brown’s long-awaited sequel, Dust 2 Glory, updates the original with modern equipment and a broader scope. It’s about the Baja 1000, but this time Brown’s film is also about what it takes to get there. The movie will cover the entire 2016 SCORE World Desert Championship, telling the stories of the racers who put it all on the line to make it to, and finish, Baja. The recently released trailer is a sample of the obsessed racers Baja attracts: a team of wounded vets campaigning a dirt bike, a husband and wife team prepping a VW bug, the pilots of ground-pounding trophy trucks with suspension travel measured in feet.

It will have been worth the wait just to see what Brown delivers with drones and small, high-definition action cameras at his disposal. Dust to Glory was packed with gorgeous aerial shots; judging by the trailer, Dust 2 Glory will be every bit as beautiful, and even more innovative. Of course, anyone can shoot high-def footage from their motorcycle these days. What sets Brown’s work apart is his focus on the human aspect of this obsession. “The stories within the stories are what’s incredible,” says one driver in the trailer. Those are the stories Brown captures best.

The new film will be released this Fall in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the SCORE Baja 1000. See the new trailer recently launched by SCORE INTERNATIONAL below!

Bob has been riding motorcycles since age 19 and working as a journalist since he was 24, which was a long time ago, let’s put it that way. He quit for the better part of a decade to raise a family, then rediscovered adventure, dual sport and enduro riding in the early 2000s. He lives in Arkansas, America’s best-kept secret when it comes to riding destinations, and travels far and wide in search of dirt roads and trails.
