DRIVER PROFILE - Mark Handley

Owner/Driver, San Marcos, CA
Mark got started in motorsports like so many others, on a mini-bike. He started at 7 years old, than began riding motorcycles both motocross, and desert. This eventually grew into a desire to drive trucks.

Mark had always heard about the Baja races. He finally went to the Baja 500 once, and was hooked!. He had to get involved with the trucks. After several years of chasing and pitting for some of the biggest names (chased and pitted for Trophy Truck Teams in 2000, 2001, and 2002)at the biggest races (Baja 500, Baja 1000, and the Baja 2000), he decided it was time to get behind the wheel himself. In March of 2003, Mark acquired the Ace Motorsports Championship F-150 just before the San Felipe 250.
