Baja Designs Becomes Exclusive LED Light of all Funco Built Vehicles

San Marcos, CA June 17, 2015 – Baja Designs announced today its new partnership with Funco Motorsports that solidifies its LED lights as the new exclusive light of all Funco built vehicles. The announcement comes as Funco continues to break new ground in the sand car market and seeks to improve on its already high quality products and marks a new partnership between two companies born out of passion for off-road.

Family owned and operated from the beginning, both Baja Designs and Funco Motorsports understand the value of a good product built by avid off-road enthusiasts. Baja Designs already offers a variety of Universal LED lights and OEM vehicle specific kits including Ford Raptor LED lights, Polaris RZR LED lights and Jeep Wrangler JK LED lights. With its 20+ years at the forefront of the off-road lighting industry, Baja Designs is eager to outfit Funco’s elite sand cars with its product.


“Our partnership with Funco is indeed something we are all very excited about. We are proud to team up with top of the line builders, and like us, Funco understands the importance of a high quality product. Stay tuned for what’s to come, as we are all very excited for the future,” stated Baja Designs President, Alan Roach.


Though the choice of lights will be specific to each custom vehicle, two of the go to lights will be Baja Designs’ new XL Pro LED and XL Sport LED. With a 4,900 lumen count and power draw of 40 watts, the XL Pro LED light is the only single housing LED light on the market that has the distance of an 8” HID with the smooth spread of an LED. The XL Sport, as well as Baja Designs’ OnX6 Series, utilizes Baja Designs’ trademarked High Speed Spot™ Reflectors, making it the furthest projecting LED light on the market. Both the XL Pro and XL Sport are perfect for enthusiasts that need a vast amount of light and are looking for something other than a standard light bar.


Funco Motorsports has been building the most superior sand cars for over 40 years. Every detail is a carefully thought out process, which is why Funco chose Baja Designs as exclusive light for their turnkey vehicles. According to Funco Motorsports GM, Grant George, the new partnership is a perfect fit in offering the best possible finished product.

“Baja Designs is the leader in the LED Lighting industry. The fast, unique and sleek team from Baja Designs are truly the Scientists of Lighting. It only seems natural to team up with Baja Designs to produce the greatest product we can offer on the market,” says George.

About Baja Designs
For 20+ years Baja Designs (BD) has engineered revolutionary ways to stay at the forefront of motorcycle and automotive lighting. The first product developed was a Dual Sport kit that made a pure off road motorcycle minimally street legal. This intimate knowledge of motorcycle electrical capabilities led to a natural evolution to engineer the first HID motorcycle race light. Owner/Lead engineer Alan Roach and Product Development Engineer Stephen “Tex” Mitchell were avid Baja 1000 motorcycle racers who were able to fine tune a motorcycle’s limited light optics to maximize rider comfort, speed and safety. As a result, Baja Designs (BD) has won every professional and amateur motorcycle and ATV Baja 1000 class for over 15 years.

As their engineers and racers advanced to truck and buggy racing, the next evolution began. The engineers quickly adapted their race winning HID motorcycle lights to their new race vehicles. With amazing speed, Baja Designs (BD) HID lights were adopted by the vehicle race community and could be found on the majority of Baja 1000 winning vehicles. In the process, Baja Designs (BD) engineers became well known as “The Scientists of Lighting” and were sought out by professional race teams to develop and aim their vehicle lighting.

LED lights were the next natural evolution of lighting and Baja Designs (BD) was the first company to develop a forward projecting LED light bar that was introduced and raced in the 2005 Baja 1000. That original LED light bar has evolved into a line of the highest performing and race winning LED lights on the market. Revolutionizing industry leading lights is not just a job at Baja Designs (BD), but a lifelong passion for both their owners and employees. The Baja Designs (BD) product line is dedicated to being BRIGHTER, BOLDER, and BETTER, which is why they truly are “The Scientists of Lighting”.
