HOUSTON, November 12, 2014 / — Port Logistics Group, the nation’s leading provider of gateway logistics services, is proud to be a sponsor of the HeartGift Baja Racing Team. The Team is competing in the 47th Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 race, one of the longest and most dangerous desert races in the world. The race runs from November 12-16, 2014.

The HeartGift Baja Racing Team will be driving the beloved HeartGift Baja Bug #579 in the competition with some of the most recognized names in motorsports. The Team will be raising money and awareness for HeartGift every mile of the way. HeartGift provides lifesaving heart surgery to children from around the world where specialized medical treatment is either scarce or nonexistent.

Kay and Greg Crouch are the primary Baja Bug drivers supported by a team of co-drivers and support personnel, known as the HeartThrobs. Rick Morris, director of infrastructure at Port Logistics Group is one of the members of the Baja Bug team. “This is one of the most exhilarating endeavors I have ever taken on. The best part is that it is for a great cause – saving the lives of children worldwide through HeartGift,” Morris stated. “I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this race and taking on this challenge of a lifetime with the support and contribution of Port Logistics Group.”

The Baja race is 1,130 miles in total, starting in Ensenada, Baja California and ending in La Paz, Baja California Sur. For more information about the race, go to
